As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.
This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks. Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.
This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.
It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.
And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.
Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.
It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures. It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.
Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.
The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.
So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week, in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.
The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.
The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.
Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.
Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?
It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.
But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.
It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.
This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.
I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.
And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.
And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..
Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire. Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.
Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.
The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.
And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.
And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious. What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.
But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..
In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict. Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.
The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo. Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.
And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.
Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East. So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age. And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.
As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.
Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.
Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.
The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging. Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.
In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.
It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.
Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.
So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).
And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week. That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go. But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.
Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.
That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level. But know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.
After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.
Till next week,
