Most people reported that they experienced a great rising of intensity at the Total Solar Eclipse last Monday the 21st.
Many others experienced breakthroughs in their lives, some rather dramatically.
Others felt the changing winds, knew a big New Chapter in their lives had begun, but yet feel more is to come.
And of course we are in the middle of Eclipse Season, lasting till around Autumn Equinox.
After the Total Eclipse on Monday, a few days later on Friday August 25, Hand of Time Saturn went direct, showing us “fated” events as time started clicking forward again..
Later that day Hurricane Harvey hit the coast of Texas, the biggest Hurricane of the decade.
Also later that day North Korea blasted off two missiles. This was at an important turning point in the conflict between the United States and North Korea. It shows us that this conflict is not over.
With the second, last, and most important Eclipse, The Total Solar Eclipse in our rear view mirrors, and with Saturn going Direct, we now have arrived in the New Chapter.
Nevertheless, next weekend, Labor Day weekend in the USA, will bring us another important turning point in personal and world affairs in this New Chapter.
Before that, on Tuesday August 29 there is a 2nd quarter Moon in Sagittarius.
That second quarter Moon has the Sun in Virgo, which it entered last Tuesday just after the Eclipse, square to the Moon in Sagittarius.
So whatever sense of grounded reality we may have experienced since the Eclipse, we will shift again into higher gears of movement forward.
And then next weekend, a turning point weekend, Mars will trigger the degree in Leo where the Total Eclipse ignited- 28+ degrees of Leo. And it will be exactly trine transiting Uranus, a planet of breakthrough and radical change.
So with that trigger, in effect the Eclipse “comes back”. More is shaking and shifting. Also what started earlier in Eclipse Season will be stirred up again.
And that Mars placement makes contact again with Trump’s Mars and Rising sign, North Korea’s Saturn, Israel’s Mars, and their Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Mars also.
The North Korea issue will be resurfacing again..
Nothing big happened with Israel in the public eye, but there must be something brewing there. There is a decent chance we will see something more obvious around the Mars trigger next Saturday September 2.
Then on the 3rd of September Mercury, slowing down and getting ready to go back Direct on September 5, makes conjunction with Mars, adding another trigger to the last Eclipse. Mercury pretty much stays at that degree for a few days.
All of this is happening in opposition to the USA natal Moon in Aquarius. That natal Moon in Aquarius represents the Bill of Rights for America, its greater social consciousness.
It is the principle of equality and Diversity in Unity that is the promise from the beginnings of the United States.
With all the triggered planetary energies being in Leo, the conflict is between Leo’s need for personal power with Aquarius’s need for group or community consciousness.
Trump, and that kind of person in power, will be in conflict with the voice of the people or the voice of democracy.
In your personal life use the best of what Leo represents: heartfelt expression, having fun, being creative and spontaneous, spreading positive hopeful energy
After the Leo triggers on the 2nd/3rd of September, Mercury is slowing down, stationing to go back Direct on September 5.
The couple of days surrounding that change of direction can be disorienting and even confusing.
Mercury was changing directions on election night in November 2000. Gore and Bush were running for President, and the media kept going back and forth declaring a different winner of the election all night long. And it was weeks later when Bush was declared to be President.
Disorientation and confusion are usually not that much when Mercury changes directions, but keep in mind around September 5 that clarity does not magically appear right away when Mercury is going back Direct.
In fact it could take up to a week or so to see complete clarity and to recognize what direction things are moving toward.
So later this coming week into next week there will be shifts and shakeups again.
These shifts are all meant to take you out of stuck places, and give you open doorways into new realms, new consciousness, new chapters of life.
This Eclipse Season will be looked back on and remembered as an important time period in our lives.
More important world events are on the way during Eclipse Season and soon afterwards,
The economy will face a big downturn soon. It will likely begin this Autumn or maybe the winter of 2017/18.
2018 and beyond show a severe downturn. The current economic system is transforming. The candidacy of Bernie Sanders was not a freak happening. It showed us where we are headed economically. The Occupy Wall Street movement was a harbinger of coming times.
People on the left and right believe we need to tax the wealthy and big corporations more, and make the economy more fair for all the people.
Health plans will continue to fail until we create a Universal Health plan, as so many western nations already have.
Difficult coming economic challenges will give motivation to notions of sharing the wealth.
As we make these important changes in our world, each of us will also be making big changes in our personal lives and in our families.
The old programming from an old paradigm no longer applies, if it ever did.
We need to retrain our minds and hearts and consciousness to the knowledge of connections. We have spent too much time and energy fighting against others, believing that is the way to a better life. We have wasted too much time believing everything is random and meaningless, or else believing that some father god is who we answer to and who gives us meaning.
Joining with others is the way forward now, even as we honor our distinct and unique individuality. Knowing all is connected and meaningful is the way now. We can now know that love and truth are the Universe’s way to lead us to our human evolving into an Age of Aquarius
When we lose the programming from an old paradigm, we realize connections in everything, we find meaning, we naturally create win/win situations, we find signs and symbols from the Universe that show us our way.
Let go of the old beliefs that limit your freedom to decide for yourself what is right or wrong, what is true or not, what is best for our world and human family.
As liberated humans we will evolve and co-create the Age of Aquarius.
It is going to be a rough ride at times, but we are ready for the challenge.
Please take a look at the new video I made about Eclipse Season. There will be a follow up video within the next few weeks.
