Keeping our Eternal Essence in its proper context (all happening within this one here-and-now moment), one Real current event involves three straight eclipses beginning on April 25, continuing on May 9 and concluding on May 25. This alone is an exploration of full disclosure, of who and what has been trying to keep our brains short-circuited, and totally fried in way too many cases. Our Heart-centers rule – Love conquers all, period – so on this one path of exploration alone, just follow the Moon’s (Loving!) Sabian* keynotes for some helpful clues.
April 25 at 6° Scorpio; “The passionate search for new values which, at any level, promise a more abundant life.” (This was a Full Moon/eclipse, so it represented endings of some sorts, meaning that we already know how to DO true abundant living, and how to BE the realization of it – to make it a reality – realities of which we already create. These “new“ values are actually ancient values though, values our distant ancestors knew well before this current and false power-game began, so the Universe is simply asking us to remember what those values were, stuff like living in harmony with the natural world and with each other, reunite with the ALL-THAT-IS, etc.)
May 9 at 20° Taurus; “The awareness of spiritual forces at work.” (A great big – Duh! – for a growing number of us, this New Moon for new beginnings can turn into a tsunami of Awakening, as more and more of the old paradigms are exposed and disclosed for what they really are, all illusions of victimhood and much worse. One forewarning though, this purely spiritual revolution will not be televised, more like an internal and evolving push-back of “STOP IT!!!,” among we the tsunami surfers.)
May 25 at 5° Sagittarius; “A poised and wise approach to existence based on a clear perception of unconscious factors and their operation.” (The unconscious is where our irrational fears arise from, never to be confused with our justifiable fears like not walking into oncoming traffic for instance. The unconscious levels are also where the powers-that-were (PTW) operate from and have skillfully manipulated but when becoming conscious, through wisdom and poise… Sure sounds like a plan!)
So, that’s one path lasting for one month, while the Earth and all of Her inhabitants symbolically attempt to block the Moon’s reflection of the Sun by eclipse. Best of luck with that, none of them are total eclipses, powerful enough but not so overwhelming as to keep us “in the dark” forever, not even close. The PTW are hoping to keep our blinding lights hidden but they can no longer do it, not while we’re standing tall in the light demanding full disclosure.
Another thing that the PTW are afraid of (while also trying to manipulate for their fear mongering gains), is the simultaneous slow-motion event in May that has been ongoing for a few years now, precisely since June 2012 but really since 2008. That was when Pluto first entered Capricorn, the solitary celestial event that has precipitated much of our global economic collapse and concurrent restructuring, as the 1% PTW manipulated their illusionary financial system at the expense of we the 99%. And basically, there’s really nothing left for them to steal and their foundationless house of cards is slowly coming down around them, and NOT falling around WE united of good faith. Pluto remains in Capricorn until 2023 but the more immediate concern is the Pluto/Uranus square, in their third-of-seven exact square-offs extending into 2015, happening precisely on May 20, amid this full disclosure eclipse cycle.
These kinds of squares are very powerful and rare, the previous approaching (Uranus-to-Pluto) squares were back in the 1870’s, a time of monumental and life-altering (Pluto) inventions (Uranus) like the electric light bulb, phonograph and telephone, all of which can now fit into the palm of one hand, ready and able to help with the disclosure via the Internet, the People‘s Media.
So, on the technological level, this downward and inward implosion of information can mirror the “awareness of spiritual forces at work,” and the “clear perception” of how the malevolent PTW works, and then what we can DO about it. Of course, there’s simply way too much information out there to filter through, so this is where we need to trust those same spiritual forces to work for – and with – us, guiding us toward the inevitable further clarity. That’s where our inner spiritual light – within our Hearts – can shine the light on every injustice, fear and delusion that would want us chained to the old ways, as in “Necessity (Pluto) is the Mother of Invention (Uranus).” Necessity = harmony, balance, sustainable and abundant life for everyone. Invention = how and what we can create to manifest those necessities, simple really.
In the “good fight” department, Uranus is moving direct through the initiating Fire of Aries while Pluto is slinking retrograde in a reflective mode so to speak, so the Promethean spirit has a better chance of gaining the upper hand. The necessity becomes much clearer, the old PTW (Capricorn) ways aren’t sustainable and never have been, inventive solutions need to be brought into the Light. Conversely (and perversely), Mars’ home turf of Aries could also be giving the revolutionary (Uranus) rebel-without-a-clue some excuses to start something stupid, without having any valid reasons why, just to see stuff blow-up or something, showing us examples of how the faulty brain can overrule the purity of Heart wisdom. We just need to remember that we can become equally stupid – way down to their level of idiocy – when we internalize anything they might be doing. So, please don’t, just rise up and say “STOP IT!!!,” also known as showing righteous indignation, we have that birthright.
The challenge presented is the peripheral nature of the square, everything off to our left and right is fuzzy until we turn our heads ninety degrees (square) to see anything squarely. So, the creative inventor within us all (Uranus) wants to look at life/death/rebirth (Pluto) situations square in the eye but we can’t, resulting in confusion and anxiety for the brain-centered. Again though, it’s our faulty heads that require spinning around like that poor girl in that dreadful movie from the early 1970’s, while our Heart-center has omniscient vision in every direction.
And if anyone still requires some loving inspiration by the end of May, the Universe provides as Mercury (inspiration) swings past the big-guy Jupiter on May 27, and Venus (Love) follows suit on the 28th. For both conjunctions, Jupiter is doing its best talkative Santa Claus impersonation at 24° Gemini in the Sabian synopsis of “Triumph over entropy,” an exalted exhortation for all of us to evolve. And this final scene (for May at least) could help remind us of the final scene in the Wizard of Oz, as Dorothy (Venus) and the Scarecrow (If I only Had a Brain/Mercury) ignore the plea of “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtains!” That would be the PTW, exposed and demystified (de-myth-i-sized as well) as the light of day reigns supreme.
The true Wizard then hands-out diplomas…
Peace out, Phil
