The light of the silvery Moon fades more and more now, as the current lunar cycle enters its 4th and last quarter phase on Monday May 7 this week.  The Moon enters the last quarter while in Aquarius.

That means that the dimming night light in the sky is lit up best now with thoughts of a more socially conscious world intending to serve all the Earth’s community.

Our thoughts and feelings and visions have much influence on the evolving collective consciousness of our human family here on Earth.

Our ancestors believed that the gods and goddesses of the planets ruled our lives as non negotiable fate.

And back then most also believed that the kings and queens who ruled the real world also fatalistically determined our human fate.

We have since been evolving our collective consciousness into a new perspective that sees “we the people” as rulers of our own world.

When Uranus, ruling planet of Aquarius, was discovered in 1781; there were two important revolutions igniting on Planet Earth: The American and French revolutions.

Both of these revolutions sought to overthrow the dominance of royalty, so individual humans would rule their own world.

And since then, through democratic institutions, such rule by the people has been attempted in many places across the world.

And this same attitude of human empowerment has been growing in relationship to planetary rulers too, as the planets were envisioned as connected to the gods and goddesses as in Jupiter, Venus, etc.

We humans have been learning about creating our own world, of course within the framework of planetary movements.

Yes the planets bring us energies that are real and need to be recognized and respected.  Yet we have been learning to co-create with these divine symbols from our heavens.

Just as weather systems bring in certain energies and configurations into our daily lives, we as humans choose our response to these systems and storms. And of course we have built shelters and damns and other structures to help us with these weather systems..

We now are at a huge turning point in our evolution toward creating our own world, in conjunction with what the Universe brings to us.

The Age of Aquarius is about developing a world community that is governed by “we the people” who are intrinsically equal in value to one another. That paradigm will naturally create a  world of Diversity Within Unity.

So this turning point in our human development means we must take full responsibility for our world, and be proactive in the downfall of Empire, Dictators, Presidents, Kings, Queens, Corporations, and Military that have heretofore dominated our existence and have been destroying the Earth and oceans, wildlife, and Universal values like love and truth that keep our souls, spirits, bodies, and lives healthy, vibrant and alive.

The craziness, ugliness, corruption, lies, and deceit that are so evident in the world now are part of the decay of the old world.

That decay is picking up speed and we are all feeling it in our own lives too. Our relationships, families, jobs, and sense of security are going through huge transformation now.  Everything is not the same as it was anymore.

We are all needing to grow and evolve now into realms that take us out of our comfort zones.

This is not doom and gloom developing; it is instead an opportunity to be better than ever before. But it sure can feel pretty bad sometimes in this transformational process to get to the better places.

So this week we move into the dimming Moon of the last quarter, which ends at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Best now to slow down and not push hard for any agenda.

Tuesday could be the most intense day this week as the Sun opposes Jupiter in Scorpio.

And at the end of the week, Moon, Mercury and Uranus in Aries square up with Mars in Capricorn.  That is potentially the most  combative time this coming week.

Many events that are connected to the recent opening of the portal in mid April will continue to pour in.  We are in a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives now and the new events are reflective of a “new normal” that is developing.

The Trump decision on Iran; opening of USA embassy in Jerusalem;  and meeting of Trump and Kim of North Korea all happen in May and June.  The results will help define what this New Chapter will be like in the global world.

All is leading up to a very powerful Eclipse Season in July and August, when there are 3 eclipses in a row. That is when Pandora’s Box will break open with many world events.

Iran, Israel, Syria, and Russia are all closely connected to these coming eclipses, and powerful events involving these countries are quite likely.

There is a Solar Eclipse in Cancer closely opposed by Pluto in Capricorn on July 12;  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that forms a strong fixed T-square with Mars and Uranus on July 27; and another Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11 that is square Jupiter in Scorpio.

All this will be happening with Mars and Mercury Retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season.

Of course we will explain much more as we get closer to that Eclipse Season.

Remember that everything is happening meaningfully, and is part of our transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

We humans have the ability to co-create now;  and we will be at our best if we are in integrity with the higher values of the heavens of the Universe, while honoring the values of the essential and primal movements of Nature and Earth, our Home.

Use the time this week, during the 4th quarter Moon, to get your bearings, to get yourself and your life “together”, and to get ready for the next lunar cycle at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Cancer Solar Eclipse and Conscious Convergence

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Our new week begins this Sunday with a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 3:40 PM EDT.  It will be visible in much of the South Pacific, seen in small islands in French Polynesia, Easter Island, and the southern tips of Argentina and Chile.  This eclipse will be at 19+ degrees of Cancer.   During a Solar Eclipse the Moon blocks the light of the Sun from visibility on the Earth.

A Solar Eclipse is a new moon with much more power.  As new moons generate new beginnings, this new moon and the lunar cycle it begins will open up new vistas of change  for many.   As part of the process of initiating new starts, a Solar Eclipse can cause breakdowns of old ways that have previously limited progress.    Solar Eclipses can then also bring about breakthroughs beyond the old stuck patterns that hold us back from new chapters in our life.

Since the Moon is blocking the light and since the sign Cancer is “ruled” by the Moon, the lunar principle is dominant now.

Whereas the solar principle is to shine success, the lunar principle is more about inner values, soul values.  At its best it is about caring for the child inside, for the vulnerable.   Cancer is a sign of protection of the tender ones.   At its best it cares more about who someone is than what it has accomplished.  It allows others to just be their common selves, and it loves unconditionally.  At its worst, it is invasive and does not have respect for boundaries.   This is because it feels in order to protect and nurture it needs to be able to see all that is going on inside another’s world and psyche.

Cancer is about family and domesticity, so family issues will be in the spotlight now.   There is a chance for emotional dramas as a result, and emotional volatility.   As this is a Solar Eclipse there may be breakdowns from people who have been tryiong to hold it all together.   They will need emotional support. Watch especially for elderly and children.

Take time now to get in touch with what is going on inside of you.  Stop rushing around so much and get in touch with what you are feeling at deeper levels. Pay more attention to the feelings of others too.  Be more sensive to what is going inside of them, not just what they show you on the outside.  We are so conditioned by our society to be outer directed and materialistic.   Our souls, our inner worlds, our children are often neglected as a result.   Ask how much you care now, not how much you have accomplished. During this Cancer New Moon cycle we are brought more into this inner world, and because it is also a Solar Eclipse we  will be sometimes powerfully brought down into our feelings and inner values.

In the greater world Cancer represents nature and natural cycles especially.  It is interesting that the lunar cycle is about 29 days, similar to a woman’s usual monthly cycle.  Nature will speak loud and clear during this lunar cycle ahead. Large natural disasters are likely as a result.  Big ego powers of the world will be threatened also during the lunar cycle ahead that this Solar Eclipse initiates.

Watch for more unpredictable countries who are outside the usual family of nations to assert themselves now, like North Korea, Iran, Libya, and Palestine.  Otherpowerful unpredictable world events are likely now for this lunar cycle and through the summer months.

After this Solar Eclipse, which follows closely behind (2 weeks) the Lunar Eclipse Grand Cross; we have a complicated formation of cardinal planets in a T- Square.   Jupiter and Uranus in Aries will oppose Mars and Saturn in Libra, all being squared by Pluto in Capricorn.  This formation forms in late July and last through much of August.  Even more powerful world events will erupt then.

The economy and military matters are highlighted then.    We are on the verge of serious transformation around those issues.

Overall, of course we are changing Ages, from a Pisces Age to an Aquarian Age.    We are moving beyond a conflict between selfish and selfless.    We are moving into an age of Diversity in Unity.   People will need to be empowered in their authentic individualized selves.  And from that authentic self join in unified community with others all around the globe.   Selfish will not work anymore as we are all unifies.  Selfless will not work either as we need free and empowered people with stong selves to help transform, heal, and rebuild our world and its community.

 Governments, religions, corporations and other institutions that rob individual humans of their liberty, their free mind and spirits, will lose their power.  Networks of free people responsible for themselves, for those who cannot take care of themselves and for our Earth and world will form and flourish.

Expect the old world and its antiquated paradigm to be challenged by world shaking events. Do not be afraid as this is all part of the natural changing of seasons from one age to another.    It may get ugly sometimes as the old world falls, but as we each align with our own deeper soul and the Universe we will each be where we need to be when we need to be there.  Watch for signs and symbols and synchronicities from the Universe and keep in touch with your own inner voice.

There is an important gathering of people engaged in Unity Consciousness on July 17/18. It is called the Conscious Convergence.  It is connected to the Mayan Calendar and the Harmonic Convergence of 1987.  Many cities have local events to honor this important passage. You can also join from you own home in unity with all others.

“See” you in 2 weeks, next Forecast on Saturday July 24
