Besides the great, American Eclipse last Summer in 2017, the upcoming Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse is an astrological event that has garnered the most amount of press in a long time. Whenever the press gets involved in any event of this kind, you can be certain of a few things:  There will be hype, there will be misinformation, and there will be fear mongering. This Eclipse is no exception.

One of my co-facilitator’s, Brenda asked me to write an article about this eclipse. First of all, who could say no to Brenda?  An astute observer of the average American, she was intrigued to discover there were segments of the population who were convinced this lunar eclipse, this full moon in Aquarius, will be the ubiquitous astrological event that ushers in, the “End of the World.” There have been many in the past 30 years: 1984, the Year 2000 or Y2K, December 21, 2012 the end of the Mayan Calendar a series of four blood red moons were all events that were supposed to be the end of us.  Whenever I hear these types of bogus prophecies, immediately the REM song plays in my mind, “it’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…”.

And, I really do. I feel fine. It truly is the end of the world, end of times, Armageddon y’all, end of days, the Apocalypse, end game, curtains. One world is ending only for a new one to begin. It’s called the evolution of consciousness, or the evolution of the collective soul, the anima mundi. Even the bible tells us, mind you, I am no bible expert, but I have heard it is stated in the bible that Jesus announces his departure (The End of the Age of Pisces) by stating, “you will know I am gone when a man carrying water enters my house”. (Look up the documentary Zietgiest on You Tube for more fun facts).

Jesus belongs to the 12th house, the house of Pisces and the sun is setting on the age of Pisces, aka the age of deception. If we go backwards on the astrology chart from the 12th house, we will reach the 11th house.  Which sign might rule over the 11th house?  Well, the man carrying water, The water bearer, Aquarius, for he is here to usher in a new age: The Age of Aquarius. Now, most astrologers agree that the reset point, the portal opening for the start of the age of Aquarius is in 2020 when there will be a number of planets that will conjunct or come together in the sign of Aquarius. Does this indicate the end of times?

If your world has been Christianity for thousands and thousands of years (How? Because reincarnation, baby) and if you rely heavily on the patriarchy, or other outside authorities, to make your decisions for you, or tell you how to you’re your life then this may very well seem to be the end of your world. This must be a very scary time for you and you have my compassion and understanding, because this will not be an easy time for you. If I could offer any advice it would be to keep an open mind, go with the flow, and be ready to let go of any and all preconceptions about who you are. Spoiler alert: You are not a lowly sinner, needing to work your way into the kingdom of heaven. Furthermore, guess whereyou are? Hell. Earth is a dense and hard reality filled with war, famine, disease, hatred, violence, addictions, dictators drunk on power, so I ask you this: “How Could Hell be Any Worse?” -Bad Religion. So, when it is your time to go, you will not spend eternity in a fire pit of maleficence. So, go have some fun! Although, chances are good you will reincarnate here to planet hell, err I mean Earth, so choose wisely.

Perhaps some will have difficulty discovering that the bible is based on astrology. Why else would Jesus say he will be outta here once the water bearer shows up? Or what about the Virgin birth?  Has anyone ever questioned that premise?  Not if I tell you that the son= the sun and was born out of the constellation of Virgo. The Virgin=Virgo.

So yes, for many people this is just one astrological event out of many that slowly tears down and erodes our prior, long standing beliefs about the world in which we live. Whether they are a myth or not. Our new world is said to bring about many changes that will happen at lightning fast speed. Most of these changes are believed to help humanity

This will be the longest Lunar Eclipse we will have this century, lasting a total of 90 minutes and will be in the air sign of Aquarius on July 27th, 2018.  If you are an Earth Empath, Highly Sensitive or if you have planets at 4 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio this is said to be potent, to cleanse and purge us in order to shift and upgrade us to a new level. It’s also important to know which house the Aquarius Moon will fall in your chart.  Aquarius rules my 11thHouse, it’s natural home.

While under the influence of this lunation, our soul is going to be shaken, and if we pay attention, we may get a violent or gentle reminder as to why our soul chose this journey in the first place. This is a powerful time for manifesting change on the personal level, through conscious, external events, or through digging deep and encouraging healing and a journey to wholeness. The eclipse on July 27th, 2018, is the next in the arc of Leo/Aquarius eclipses from last summer.

All full moons occur in the sign opposite the location of the sun, which in this case is Leo. The polarity of these signs are creative self-expression versus the group, and the needs of the individual versus the needs of the global community.  Eclipses signify major transformation and are always a part of a larger cycle; this eclipse is part of the Leo/Aquarius cycle, echoing the themes of last year’s eclipses of August of 2017, which includes last year’s Solar Eclipse who’s trajectory crossed over the United States.              


Here is a sampling of what to expect for the upcoming Age of Aquarius:

  • It will be the end of selfish desire and the beginning of selfless free expression of the soul of humanity

  • This is a time of the merging of the opposites, the masculine and the feminine. These two energies within each of us will once again work together to know the divine inherent in us all.

  • It will be understood that we are the ones we have been waiting for to save us from ourselves

  • Technology will reign supreme and there will be many new technologies in the coming years we haven’t even dreamed up yet

  • In regards to polarity of the Aquarius/Leo axis the intensive self-consciousness of Leo should expand into the group awareness of Aquarius. In other words, the individual should become the universal while still maintaining individuality. Personal Identity will be lost for the good of the whole. Yet personal spiritual identity would remain intact.

  • Another key trait of this new age is "humanitarianism without prejudice or preference." This could represent the emergence of pro-active intergovernmental organizations and unified global movements. Meaning we truly are in this together and it will be a win win for all.                     

The Pisces age was characterized by a pyramid with one or two on top controlling all of the money, power and influence.  Expect the pyramid to be smashed, expect equality and for sure expect the return of the Divine Feminine.  The divine in me recognizes and acknowledges the divine in you.

So you tell me, is it the end of the world?
