May, with its two eclipses has opened with a sense of new possibilities.
After the powerful Scorpio/Taurus Lunar Eclipse on April 25th a passage opened for us to truly own the condition of our inner world as a precursor to outer experiences and situations. The Eclipse was like a bolt of lightening as it must appear from the depths of the ocean (the deep waters of Scorpio shaken and stirred!). This journey continues as we experience two more eclipses this month. The passage rambles on into the depths of the collective psyche, rattling away at outmoded belief systems and ivory towers constructed by our self-importance.
The New Moon in Taurus May 10th, 00:23am (EST, Australia) is an Annular Solar Eclipse.
The Solar Eclipses often bring manifestations into our outer worlds, and if you were affected by the Lunar Eclipse mentioned above, then you could find that things that got shaken loose, and hopefully were met by you in that week, will now show up as resolutions and manifestations. If not examined during that time (25th April), they could arise as issues to still be addressed in your outer world.
And then on May 24th we will have another partial Lunar Eclipse, (btw: which will powerfully affect those Sagittarians born 25-27th November). Remember Sagittarius prefers the truth, and so if there’s anymore tending to your internal landscape that needs doing now is the time to cultivate a broadminded approach to this. The Lunar Eclipses help us weed the gardens of our memories. Pull out any memories which are limiting new growth from happening into the light of your awareness. Acknowledge their existence, allow yourself to feel anything painful, so as to heal it; rejoice in the happiness of rich memories that have brought delight, and then let them go, merging and disappearing into all that is.
On that note about cultivating, I need to mention the Moon’s South Node which has been travelling in Taurus for eight months now and recently with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars all accompanying it, we are reminded to come together in a natural and peaceful way to nurture the garden of our Earth, out Mother, who sustains us and holds us. The Scorpio North Node has certainly been showing many of us the results of our determined materialism and the need to prune excesses, so as to live a bigger and more community orientated shared life here on precious Gaia.
Also this month we have the third Uranus Square to Pluto transit (there are four more coming 2014-15). This great revolutionary cycle we are in (see more about that here) which is shaking up the status quo, allowing us to see through our automated conditioned ways and awakening us to our full potential. Perhaps technology and science are no longer rejecting notions the metaphysical world has accepted as truth for centuries, and are quietly looking into the possibility that we are multi-dimensional beings living in multi-dimensional realities, and that what we eat, breathe, think and share affects everything.
I notice that right wing parties and groups are forming and gaining momentum again here in Australia and UK, and I interpret that as a manifestation of fear.
Is it the fear of freedom and the right for us all to live in an equitable world?
