We are truly living in exciting and revolutionary times! The realizations recognized in the past by mystics, saints, and prophets are now being made available to all of humanity.  We start realizing that the established powers no longer hold the answers.

This is particularly evident from an astrological perspective. Currently the higher consciousness planets of Pluto, Neptune and Uranus are all moving into new areas of revelation and consciousness changing.

In 2008, we saw this shift beginning with Pluto moving into Capricorn, where it will remain until 2024. We will be seeing many of our established institutions, rulers and structures being questioned, destroyed and broken down in order to make way for a new way of doing and being.

“The crisis, as well as the opportunity, of our time is to surrender our ego and conditioned fear mechanisms to the primary torsion energy of unconditional love that is seeking to evolve us and is calling us as a species home.” ~ Sol Luckman

Last month, we witnessed the next phase of the higher awareness shift taking place, as Uranus moved into Aries for a new reign from 2011 to 2018. During this phase we will be experiencing sudden, unpredictable shifts in nearly every aspect of our lives – from the workplace, to our home, to our inner core values and beliefs.

We will begin to realize that we have to learn to live in the flow and that nothing in life is constant except change. We will learn to live in the moment, adapt to our constantly changing environment and self. We will be learning to not hold on so tightly, as the harder we try to maintain things the way they are, the more difficult our lives become.

On a more positive side, we can expect to see rapidly changing ideas and innovations that improve our lives. Inventive solutions for the myriad problems the world is facing are implemented that will eventually reverse much of the damage that has been wrought by the industrial complex.

“When we shift our awareness or ‘frequency’ from self-consciousness – where fear, impossibility or feelings of separation reside – to cosmic consciousness, which is in total harmony with the universe and where none of those feelings exist, then anything is possible.” ~ Rhonda Byrne

Next month, Neptune moves into its home sign of Pisces for a few months, to give us a peek at the changes it will be bringing into the new age. In August 2011, it backs out and then returns home again in 2012, where it stays until 2025. During this 24 year period, humanity will start turning inward toward that inner light and connecting with it in unprecedented numbers.

While the planetary energies do not force us to change, they certainly influence us to change, open up, and bring circumstances into our lives that push us towards change.

As we start tuning in en masse to this inner source of knowledge, humanity begins to realize that each and every one has the ability to surrender to the field of universal light and love that permeates all of creation and empowers us to be who and what we truly are. When we are able to surrender to these energies, we can then transform our earth back into a virtual Eden and a place of joy and love.

Make no mistake that these are very powerful energies lining up astrologically, and it can be applied to bring unprecedented and universal change into our lives and into the earth’s environment. Let’s be sure that we are using these energies to enrich our lives, as well as that of our companions and the environment. Tune in and be aware! It is truly a privilege to be alive in these special times.
