This is a time of great importance for all beings. We are in the midst of a great shift in consciousness. You will find a wealth of information about the Great Shift on the internet. My role as an astrologer is to try to help people make sense of the monumental changes that are taking place for us all, and to use the birth chart as a means of pointing the way forward for each individual.
Spiritual awakening is accelerating. Depending on our individual lessons and the degree to which we are ready to meet old karma, to learn and grow, these developments are ranging from positive illumination and healing of old wounds to large scale crisis or catastrophe and breakdown of existing forms. In many cases healing and resolution of old karma cannot unfold without such crisis.
Certainly the past few years have brought major developments into our lives, and will continue to do so for many years into the future. Since 2012 the planets Pluto and Uranus have been square to one another, symbolizing the combining forces of revolution and transformation. They set the scene for the death and regeneration of old structures in our personal lives, and in societies throughout the world.
Awareness of our interconnectedness and our capacity for love and forgiveness are glimpses of our divinity. Experiences of synchronicity, psychic visions and telepathic communication are more frequent. Understanding is often at an intuitive, knowing level, not as a result of information. Fear decreases as we become less susceptible to the ego's sense of separation.
Simultaneously, many people are being forced to grow rapidly to keep up with the quickening of consciousness that is occurring now. As we become aware of a deeper reality, all expressions of the ego must continue to dissolve. Old thought forms perpetuate the belief we are separate from the Whole. They are incompatible with the unconditional love energy we beginning to uncover. Regardless of where we are at on our spiritual path, we must maintain our commitment to awakening from the dream. The process will be assisted by people and circumstances in our life.
The experiences will be different for each of us, according to the lessons we need to learn. We may try to resist the changes, however all upheavals will continue until we fully awaken. The process could be very challenging. We may feel disoriented, and more acutely aware of desires and fears. Fears that have long been buried, perhaps for many lifetimes, will be pushed to the surface. Disturbing thoughts and emotions can arise spontaneously. Intensely challenging circumstances and karmic relationships may trigger our deepest wounds. Old, recurring patterns of attachment must be dissolved with the light of awareness and acceptance. This process cannot be evaded. Many people are learning multiple lessons that run concurrently.
On a collective level, purification continues to manifest as increase in global conflict, and crises brought on by climate and geological changes. Yet with the dawn of awakening comes greater awareness of ecological concerns, inequality, discrimination and persecution is also being disseminated through the many forms of media communication. Liberating conditions are beginning to unfold in many formerly oppressed societies, and this process will continue. Most importantly, spiritual seeking is becoming more widespread as we continue the inner journey from fear and negativity to love and peace.
