The Times Are Changing: A look into the coming cycle

Greetings
I feel compelled to write this note about what we astrologers are seeing coming. We are in the beginning of a very unique time in history that will redefine the foundations of our lives. The astrological circumstances are uncommon and very dramatic. Change is likely to affect every level of our being, even though each person will feel it differently and in varying degrees of intensity.

I’m writing this note so that you may make better use of this time and understand what it is about. As astrologers we are aware of cycles that affect our existence; because this coming cycle is very unique, I feel it is important to share this information. I will try to keep it simple and not burden you with a long text and excessive details.

There are multiple planetary bodies that are gradually forming a very particular and rare alignment. This configuration began to form during the fall of 2008. Politically, that time was when the economical crisis exploded and when US president Barack Obama was elected.
The configuration will move into a second phase during November 2009 and January/February 2010. (Saturn will move into the Cardinal sign of Libra and will form powerful angle to Pluto in Capricorn).

Image

The third phase is probably the most dramatic and intense, and will occur from the end of June to the end of July 2010, when all the factors of the configuration will align together in a cross at the very beginning of Cardinal signs in astrology. (Cardinal signs are the signs of new cycles. The planets in questions are Pluto, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars).these planets are slow moving bodies and therefore it is absolutely exceptional that these slow moving bodies end up all aligned in a cross on these very sensitive degrees!

In normal circumstances, some people go through changes while others continue their routine. Here the alignment is so strong and dramatic that everyone’s life can be considerably affected… it is likely that your life will not be the same by fall 2010!
The question that often arises is:” Is it bad, or is it good?” The answer is that it depends on the way one deals with the events; a conscious approach can make a difference.

One thing for certain: do not expect security, consistency, and predictability during this time. Reality is bound to change fast and so it is better to move with the flow, while remaining conscious of what is going on. Flexibility is one of the most important assets during this time. This influence is analogous to a gigantic wave forming…you can ride on that wave and go farther than ever expected —experience a powerful transformation that can elevate you to new grounds. But this wave can also destroy a lot of what you are currently attached to.

Redefinition may occur in different fields: you may change vocation, relationships, location, mindsets, to name but a few. New people will move into your life, current ones may leave. New ideas and projects will develop and you may feel inspired to completely reinvent yourself! The cards are re-shuffled! This is a time of an awakening, a revolution…an internal and social revolution.

Everything is shaking up… everything…from November 2009 until August 2010, nothing will stay still. It can be very good, but you have to learn to navigate these changes and seize opportunity when it comes. Don’t try to have it all perfect, don’t try to keep the cake and eat it: change can take you to a completely new and perhaps higher level of what you are about, but you will have to let go of your security during this time. It is a time for risk, reinvention, new ideas, new concepts, new vision, and the impetus to make it happen. Marriages may break, jobs and possessions may be lost, people may get sick, and simultaneously, new relationships may emerge, new passion may awaken, a completely new lifestyle is in the making...You are embarking on an adventure whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not. My suggestion: make peace with the idea, don’t resist the adventure. If you are accepting it, you will make the best of it. If you fight and resist it, you won’t win. This is what I mean by being open to risk taking… it may be time to take that “plunge!”

Risking does not mean giving in to every silly venture. It is about hearing a calling for truth…things you have denied, postponed, avoided, feared, but things you know were true. This is a time to be more truthful and follow a calling.

Collectively, while the forces of corruption and manipulation may attempt to control the course of events, they are bound to disintegrate. Scandals will continue to hit the news…Natural events will continue to shake the earth. At worst, a war may break during summer 2010 or later because dramatic changes can spur fear and conflict. But it does not have to go that way; we are creators of our own destiny in the midst of the given circumstances.

As you go through these changes, it is crucial that you take good care of your immune system because as positive as changes may be, they can overwhelm you and weaken your immune system: eat more healthy, avoid fast sugar, ingest raw garlic and onions daily (sandwich), exercise, take time out of the intensity loop, do not let negativity take over—these are basic tips that can keep you grounded.

Importantly: the situation heating up is like a piece of molten iron that can be beaten into a better form—personally and collectively. Be an ambassador of good and avoid wasting time on trivial details. For example, as we see the earth being depleted and all resources and species dwindling, people waste time arguing if global warming is or is not happening…if it is man-made or not! IT DOESN’T MATTER! What matters is that the natural world is vanishing before our eyes because of our misaligned actions: excessive pollution, deforestation, and peaking toxicity levels are a reality beyond global warming debates.

Similarly, the economy is not likely to stabilize any time soon…but perhaps, necessarily so. And so it will be with many other aspects of your life...you will not have immediate answers. Be patient and keep doing your best. When the cycle will complete, new circumstances will emerge. This cannot be artificially rushed. These dramatic times are an opportunity for us to restructure our lives, personally and collectively. As many things are being redefined, we can relinquish bad habits and attachments, open up to new ideas, and invest in what works rather than settle for immediate gratification. Patience is another essential asset.

In this context, do not expect others to change for the better if you don’t do it yourself. We blame the governments and project our frustration on distant “evils,” but fail to open our hearts ourselves. Being pro-active may work better than being self-righteous.

IMPORTANT DATES TO NOTE:
October 30 to early December 2009
January 15 to February 15, 2010
June 25 to August 5, 2010
November 1 to December 26, 2010


GENERAL SUGGESTIONS:
Understand this is an opportunity to reinvent ourselves in a better way.
Understand there will be a price to pay, something may need to go.
If you lose something or someone, understand this is the sign of these times, use a crisis to venture into new horizons and create something new.
Understand this is an adventure and risk must be taken.
Understand that this is not a time when we can expect security—we are in transition.
Listen to your inner truth, make you life truly happen now.
Take care of your immune system: avoid bad diets in general…they render you vulnerable to opportunistic viruses.
Support your friends and family, we all shall need one another for support during this transition time.
Cultivate your spiritual practice: this is also important for your immune system.
Do your best to do good: whatever you seed now will have effect now and later.


There is probably more than can be said and explained, but you get the point…
An incredible opportunity is arising, now and throughout 2010…this type of cycle has not happened in recent history. We can expect a certain level of destruction to occur—that is the price to pay…but the prospect of experiencing an awakening and creating a better future is now within reach. We are now in the midst of a revolution—a cultural, social, and political revolution. On a personal level, it is a conceptual, emotional, and or spiritual revolution…truly, it is in the making!

I wish you the very best and infinite blessings during this time and beyond!
May you be guided and manifest the highest of your potential…

With love,
Maurice

Thank you so much Maurice--for myself, there is this constant undercurrent of when "the other shoe is going to drop" in the collective, I see so much strain in people's eyes, but also people reaching out.

Beautifully expressed, thanks again.

Thank-you...what a beautiful gift you gave us with this note...

Sometimes I am afraid of what is to come but then I remind myself that I don't know what will happen. I feel everything changing and already see some people pushed to their limits...

What gives me some comfort is the thought that what is true is lasting and that we still have a choice as to how we respond in any given situation.

I'm hoping to be able to embrace the "wave of life."

I'm thinking of everyone and hoping we can make it...Love LeAnn

Wonderful overview, a great map from the heart and soul on how to stay centered in this coming time.

For those who feel worried / challenged remember; within the inherent symbol of a new cycle is the fact that things have been misaligned and cut
off from the highest inspiration and good of all beings in the past cycle. A purging needs to happen out of karmic necessity. Stay grounded in nature,
spiritual practice / surrender / devotion, and people around you that are also tapped into their higher calling and nature and you can't go wrong!

As a side note to Maurice's plea to let trivialities go, like the manmade global warming issue in his most recent post about the grand cross, I would like to point out the following: We are agreed petty arguing about who is right or wrong coming from an ego level is tiresome and purposeless in the face of well acknowledged pollution, degradation etc. But I would politely submit that the global warming issue is important enough to keep looking at and questioning for the data if followed back to it's conception and supposed remedy originates with the same evil folk Credo is speaking out against. He is telling us that our future and policies are planned for us by the same people who have engineered and wrought the destruction, whether wars, famine, environmental degradation ,or even the harm done to women , all the while we continue to accept the lies because they sound good.. only more of the same can result.


I understand your point and perhaps agree with it to some extent.

My perspective is that the nature of the coming events is extreme and requires a pro-active approach. If everyone is doing their share and staying alert, it creates its own wave...a revolution is in the making, an awakening is in the making, and in some ways, we have to see the positive in that momentum...seize this moment. These greater evils may cause destruction, but they become the victims of their own creation...in some ways, as we keep doing our work, we can observe how they sink in their own quicksand. Pluto in Capricorn plays very strongly as a karmic broom--as Uranus and Jupiter in Aries will tightly square it, a strong reaction is expected. It is a big bang...

With these strong cardinal signatures, creativity is our savior...it is a time for newness, so the mantra is CREATE--plant the seeds of what you want the next cycle to look like. Invest your effort as history is being re-written...

If one gets caught in the argument, no creation ensues and no seeds are planted. Words end up nullifying the action.

Strange that I am eager for this. Whatever 'this' is. I am hoping for a shift in Economic thought from the Chicago School, to the Austrian School. Or at least some form of it.

I totally agree with you...


Thank you Maurice, you are a very gifted communicator, excellent explanation!

I think I have been under the "radical shift" for a while, I have gone through a lot in my life and learn a lot...I guess there is more to come :!:

Something tells me this COULD mean the success in the GOP's push to "see Obama fail". That means the recession may be prolonged even longer and deeper if this administration cant help us. Then we will have to wait all the way until the next one gets in and settled and an act together and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...

It could because the future is an open book, but I doubt it for one good reason...Uranus and Jupiter in Aries reflect a need for a new dawn. ALl the GOP offer is an old and obsolete solution. They criticize Obama but offer nothing valuable in return...that cannot fly with Uranus/Jupiter in Aries! The public will need NEW solutions. On this note, Obama will also fail if he doesn't ride the wave of the new consciousness. He himself will have to go beyond regurgitation of old mental concepts,..he will have to dare go beyond and yet do it wisely so that he does not come on too strong.

I would say the slower moving planet, Pluto, will guide the rest of the energies. I agree with Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, that it'll not get ignored. I also think having Saturn in Libra(sign of exaltation) is a good thing. Relationships will be examined in terms of establishing boundries that sit well for long term peace.

Pluto in Capricorn will be the overall theme these other energies will be asked to serve. These energies will ask us to be more self-reliant, and to take on more responsibility ourselves. What laws will make us more self-reliant and responsible for ourselves? That collectively, opportunity exists to allow this to happen.

I do believe he and many on his team ache to go beyond the old concepts but the problem dose persist, as you said, how to not come on too strong. When NEW means changing money itself and the rules and boundarys of wall street "giants" -coming on too strong is a touchy subject. He is attempting to change the game of powerful giants who are already angered.

I so do not want to think about this.... :? :? :? :| ....... and yet it touches so much that is so important in my chart!

With a bit of luck, the world will evolve further (Pluto) along Capricorn´s sense of values...
