'The breakthrough has happened.'

"And I do mean for everyone. That doesn't mean we all got wonderful presents, or lumps of coal. " Remember, do NOT get too focused upon what happened concretely to you, i.e., job, money house, car, etc. Keep a wider perspective on YOU. How YOU have cracked open the shell that you were once contained within--perhaps for a long time."

Rick DiClemente-

The breakthrough my colleague Rick is talking about is the new birth we're all experiencing. The Cardinal Grand Cross in late April coupled with the lunar and solar eclipses have worked their magic on all of us. Something has happened. There's a feeling that the time is NOW to finally deal with our lives and move ahead. It's time to break out of patriarchy's restrictions on possibility. Uranus in Aries leads the way: Uranus because it's the energy of breakthrough and awakening, Aries because we need a new beginning and new identity if we are going to live out our destiny.

The zodiac represents the archetypal laws that shape our life here on Earth. Whenever the Sun is in a sign, we pay conscious attention to that aspect of life. When the Moon is in a sign, our emotions are engaged with the activities of that sign. At a Full Moon, opposite signs and their issues are brought together for us to reflect on their meaning and their effect on us.

The signs of Taurus and Scorpio signify how we view the two basic laws of life: Life and Death, Creation and Destruction, Fulfillment and Annihilation. As you can imagine, people are feeling all the fears and needs tied up with these issues. To fulfill our new Aries destiny, we have to face what life brings us with self-awareness and humility, accepting necessary deaths to accommodate new life.

That's been a major problem with patriarchy--it refuses to accept the need for death and change before re-birth. It doesn't value the feminine understanding of life as cyclical. But that is the truth of our universe. We live in cycles as well as linear time. There must be destruction if there is to be new creativity. So by embracing our own psychological deaths and dealing with the emotional turmoil that arises when we give up long-term beliefs and patterns of behavior, we learn the lesson of death and re-birth. We take 'death as our advisor'. We bring back an ancient thread to the tapestry of society that's been lost for hundreds of years. We help the culture evolve as we evolve.

At the Taurus Solar eclipse, we were confronted with the question, "What do you value?" By asking the question, we get to notice if we're living out our values with others. And when we're not, we can understand why not and correct old behavior patterns. It's time to see if our personal values align with others' values, and that if we are to transform the culture, we need to live by our best values.

This Scorpio Full Moon asks us to contemplate the most important law of life--facing what needs to die and acknowledging what wants to live--so we can understand what we value and what supports our future growth. We cannot grow further as individuals or as a world until we accept don Juan's wisdom to take 'death as our adviser'. We fear death and refuse to face it until we are forced to--unfortunately, we are facing death because we let climate change get out of hand instead of dealing with it years ago. This Scorpio Full Moon can push us to face what we've refused to face and finally acknowledge the task. The U.S. Global Change Research Program came out with its report and recommendations this week and it does just that. It acknowledges the tasks ahead of us. Now we have to make our government do what it has to do slow down climate change and find ways to begin the healing of the Earth. We do this for our children and their children's children, who will have to live with the effects of our mistakes for decades and perhaps centuries to come.

Allow yourself to feel who you really are and to have the courage to show others who you are. That's the first step. Be Here Now! as Baba Ram Dass once advised.
