Please remember that we are in transition between Ages- moving from a now dying Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
The Age of Pisces began around the birth of Jesus Christ, maybe 100 or 200 years before that birth.
The Christ birth turned into the Christian religion. Anything in the name of Christ is Pisces, the sign of compassion, sacrifice, soul, and even savior.
The opposite sign of the sign of an Age is important- actually together they create the New Age.
Virgo is the sign opposite Pisces and Virgo in this case represents the material plane, distinctly opposite the soul plane of Pisces.
An old expression, paraphrased is ” Give unto Caesar or give unto Christ” .
The Roman Empire existed at the same time as Christ and the birth of the Christian Religion.
And so this was the first look at an important theme for the Age of Pisces: working with the dichotomy of body and soul.
Religions often speak of the soul leaving the body after death and being weighed for entrance into heaven or hell.
The Muslim religion had its beginnings with Mohammed- who existed just a few hundred years later in the 7th Century AD.
These two religions have been the most influential ones for the masses of humanity.
On the Virgo side of materialism, there have been many Empires: Roman, Ottoman (Turkey), British, Spanish, Soviet Union, and now the last Empire of the Pisces Age- the USA Military Industrial complex which is expanded to include Europe and NATO and Israel.
Israel is of course the root religion for both Muslim and Christian. It is root religion for believing in the One Male God .
This is much different from what came previously- the many Gods and Goddesses of Rome and Greece.
And now we face the transformation of both Empires and Religions.
Empires transform into Aquarian Age ideals of Equality and Diversity in Unity. No Empires, becoming more like the United Nations, but without a Security Council of states that rule over all the other countries with more privilege to decide how the world is run- Russia, USA, China, Britain, and France.
And traditional religions transform into individuals connecting directly to the God Force or Universe, whatever words one uses for the Spirit realm of consciousness.
At the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in the early 1990’s, humanity gave more attention to the Social Networks (Uranus) and the Soul realm (Neptune).
The early 90’s also brought us to the computer and internet revolution, another outgrowth of Uranus conjunct Neptune.
Remember that the 3 transformational planets are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They were discovered respectively in 1781, 1846 and 1930.
Uranus in 1781 synchronized with the revolutions of the USA and France. Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius, and is about revolution, rebellion, liberty, awakenings, Diversity within the Unity of the greater community, freedom of expression, and people power without needing of Kings, Queens, Dictators or anyone else who dominates the will of the people.
Neptune in 1846 synchronized with Karl Marx and the industrial revolution which was generally abusive and unfair to the people, whose souls suffered as peons of Big Industry.
And in 1930 Pluto synchronized with Ghandi and the civil disobedience of the Indian people against the Power of the British Empire. This was about people knowing their own Power- the Power of the People. Britain soon after left India to rule themselves.
We can see how the world on the way to the Age of Aquarius, needed to move beyond the energy and messages of a world that had Saturn as the planet furthest away from Earth.
In that position it became the One God of the Old Testament, the 10 commandments, linear thinking, a sense of limitation, and of consequence for breaking rules or committing sins.
Saturn is also “the end”, death, Father Time and the Patriarchy.
You can see how Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are the ambassadors for the consciousness needed to usher in the Age of Aquarius.
And this year is an important crossroad on the way into the Age of Aquarius. In December 2020 is an important turning point into that Age when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.
Will speak much more about all this in other forecast blogs this year.
And these issues will be in the spotlight of the webinars I will give on May 9, June 5 and July 11. All begin at 10:30 AM Pacific Time and will last till noon or 12:30 PM.
If interested please write to me at email@example.com. Cost is $20 for each webinar, and you can attend one, two or all 3. If you want to listen to the first one too from early April it will be $70 for all, which will include a recording of the April webinar.
Purpose of the webinars is to help in understanding what is going on in our world, to get a bigger picture and deeper insight into our journey now. And this includes all of our personal journeys now too, learning how to navigate this passage into the Age of Aquarius.
This week there is a shift into Taurus energies. The Sun moves into Taurus on April 19 and the Moon joins the Sun in Taurus at 3+ degrees of Taurus- to form a New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday April 22 at 10:26 PM EDT.
Early this week we are in the dark moon phase of the lunar cycle, giving us pause to reflect before the New Moon on the 22nd. Resist urges to be depressed.
Of course most have been given the ability for finding greater inner connections with the Virus keeping us at home.
Taurus seeks to consolidate, to manifest, to make more solid and/or comfortable. It takes in better than it gives out, and often wants to hold onto very tightly what it has let in.
And that includes people or possessions. It can become very possessive.
And as a fixed earth sign it will hold firmly to what it wants or believes in. Its reputation for being stubborn has been well earned.
Money and material security are very important to Taurus. The country’s desire now to focus more on money and economy and somewhat less on the Virus which keeps everyone at home, is connected to this Taurus need, which is for better and worse it seems.
Toward the end of the week on Saturday April 25, Pluto shifts from Direct to Retrograde, putting the often explosive energy of Pluto front and center after the New Moon in Taurus.
And early next week on the 26th the Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus.
Pluto and Uranus both being strong at the end of this week and beginning of next week, promises some important shifts, shifts that will help us to transform our consciousness more aligned with the Age of Aquarius.
