Full Moon, January 16, 2014
Change starts within and not without!
This full moon we have a Gemini/Sagittarius opposition and you can see from the picture with so much red/orange, that there is a lot of tension in the air. A very good sample for this is the political unrest in Thailand. The ‘bubbling’ and ‘cooking’ under the surface, which has cracks all over, is coming rising and the outbursts become visible.
It is not only in Thailand, people are generally fed up with the existing order and control, with the “norm” of how to behave and live life. They are unsatisfied with the current school system, medical and pharmaceutical level, the poisoning of babies with vaccines that might be the cause of not only autism but also many other symptoms that we don’t even know about etc.
There is a big outcry for more individualism and especially creative expression. Even though everybody is talking about “unity” and “unity consciousness” most often this is totally misunderstood. The controlling lobby uses these words to manipulate and set an ideal which many, especially those who are not so privileged, gratefully reach for. They think that they are much better off then. But like so many so called ‘reforms’ over the last few thousands of years have shown that changes from the outside connected with the system never bring more freedom to people. It just looks like that in the first moment.
Have a look at the two “test settings” after WW2: communism and capitalism. It seemed that the capitalism is great and freedom is granted, but it was a system to make people weak, slaves of consumerism! They now live in a golden cage and many still don’t know. Behind the “iron curtain” of communism, the people actually were suffering and therefore forced to stay alert, to wake up and to became stronger with the years. The “iron curtain” fell after a relatively short period of less than 50 years.
We can say, looking at the division of east and west in Europe, the communist system was more in favor of waking up people due to the pressure. Now they “westernize” themselves in a incredible speed and to catch up with the capitalistic dream.
Most people still don’t realize how much they are manipulated and that the governments slowly tighten the rope with clever propaganda. The material possession never can give happiness! The moment one has received/achieved something, is the moment to set a new goal to achieve more! But on a material level we can’t expand limitless without the possessions becoming a burden one day and we are possessed by them!.
The tension, that you see in this Full Moon opposition with the two squares to Mars, shows that the point of saturation has been reached. We can ask the question, why this happens in Thailand now, and not in the more suppressed countries around. It is quite clear if you look from a non linear perspective: something similar happened like in the east/west split in Europe. Here, a huge consumerism has taken over, people get more into debts because of the payment by installment offers. It’s just a little bit per month… so they think. But as we experienced with employees too, first thing after they start to work for a few days, they ask for money to buy a TV, fridge etc. by leasing contracts and when we ask a bit more, they already pay most of their salary for the car etc. and have barely enough to buy food.
People are easily seduced and Uranus, still in Pisces, is not helping them to see clear on the material, linear level. Uranus, in a square aspect to Pluto shows that a lot of people who have been seduced are in deep trouble now and might loose all that what they don’t need to live. We need to awaken to the real values in life again!
We might often don’t get what we want, but always what we need!
The time quality now is all about to lift the veils of illusion and show the naked truth. With Venus opposite to Jupiter, both retrograde, there is yet not much visible growth, it’s a time to look through the magnifying glass at the things which are not resolved. Our problems in our lives are being highlighted so we can take care and solve them.
Both, Mercury and the Moon are in Gemini, we need to go into contact with things to see the limits and seduction to break free. Sagittarius gives the opportunity to move beyond boundaries, but if we just do so on the physical level with violence and fighting, problems are not being solved but new ones created.
To solve a problem we have to look inside and ask ourselves why our life situation presents us with the existing problems. It’s because we need them to grow. It’s because we have not yet understood that lesson and it becomes more and more urgent. Not only on a personal level, on a wider level it’s the same, if it concerns a family, business or is a country wide conflict, there is no escape. The group situation we are in is just a mirror of the conflict of the whole group, family or country.
The energy of Saturn at the end of Libra is giving us another chance to balance our karma before we move into the transformation process that awaits us when he moves into Scorpio. The better option is to get ready and look at the highlighted issues.
I strongly believe, that since most people still use Western Astrology which has nothing to do with the real star constellation, people can’t understand the real time quality and therefore many things are out of control. A tool given to us is not used in the proper way. In ancient times, when astrologer and astronomers were still working together and nobody was just “astrologer” without also being an astronomer, they always have been in the vicinity of the royal families or chief of clan etc. because they could understand the time quality and therefore guide people what to do.
Why is it, that so many people are constantly seeking advise from others, asking question and advise and find no directions and satisfaction in their lives outside from a material/money based career.
Why are so many people lost is superstition, in new age cults and promises? They don’t get what they want either, because there is only one way to take back our power and this for sure is not to listen to answers and solutions of others.
The true process that will guide to a unity consciousness is to first find our individuality, our unique identity as a creator and then, behind the outer appearance of the distinctive personality see the “glue” that holds every thing together! Not just human beings, but the whole universe that we are part of!
In this time our world is confronted with, once again, karmic issues and mistakes that humans have made over and over again for millenniums. One can’t change people or even a country with fighting, brainwash, accusations and political power.
Change starts within and not without!
One of the major topics in the moment is to take back our own power through deep soul searching and responsibility (response – ability) which enables us start to change from inside out.
A very easy first step is to start is to brake our habits. They are just laziness or unwillingness to move forward into a new life adventure.
Sitting in front of TV or other media, listening to what should be is not bringing any benefits. Judging and condemning others neither! The best way to change things is too look at our own life and start to handle that one, with an honest look at it and response-ability to the situation we are in.
One of a very good start to change life is to check our food habits and get over the taste-bud addiction and eat more healthy. Avoid the sugars and other foods that make us tired and craving. To stop dieting and believing that this can help, because most people are dieting all the time and still gain weight, but start to understand the whole food issue as such. So many eat “comfort food” because they are frustrated and compensate their frustration. This, of course, can not bring much benefit as long as we don’t look at what is really frustrating in our lives and change the situation instead of the food!
At least, start to be honest with yourselves, even if you are not there yet to be honest with the people around you. Most people are not honest which is showing in physical symptoms. I am learn my lesson in the moment to slow down, I was racing through part of my life like a candle burning on two ends, now I have to deal with the body. But luckily, I did prepare for this, and our new center is nearly complete and soon I can retreat from all the extra work that I had here in the old center to focus on what I am really good and passionate about.
Why did I manage to get there? Because I was honest with myself and stopped to pretend (to myself) to be able to handle every thing on my own. I have made decision and worked with my little “Secret Abundance Box” to manifest them. I was always trying to understand the time quality and did brake free from old believes and dogmas. I have learned that standing still is actually going backwards because every thing around us moves. I am not talking about “taking a break” or slowing down, but about not to evolve further and being stuck with paralyzing habits. I did change my views in life many times despite others labeling me crazy and even rewrote whole books at the point when I could not stand up for what I wrote 10 years ago… and we are just now burning about a hundred books that I still have left from the last edition because I’d rather loose that money than sell something I can’t believe in anymore.
The world is going into a transformation, if you like it or not. All the signs are here and an old, not functioning paradigm is going under with lots of people who are not willing to take that leap.
It’s up to which way you choose ….. are you ready to leave the ashes of an old paradigm behind you and rise as the phoenix?
**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° April 18, Taurus: 36° – May 13, Gemini: 28° – June 21 Cancer: 20° – July 20, Leo: 36° – Aug 10, Virgo: 44° – Sept 16, Libra: 23° Oct 30, , Scorpio: 25° – Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° – Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° – Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° – Feb 16, Pisces: 37° – March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
