Time Passages

What a whirlwind of a time we are in! With today's energy of the Lion Gate portal to the first of three eclipses within one month, to Saturn going direct on 8/13, to Mercury going retrograde on 8/31 through most of September, and finally the fall equinox on 9/22, we are in the depths of change. All of these potentially life-changing events will mark some of the most significant passages of our lives. Here is a boiled down version of the energy of the three eclipses with information from astrologer David Palmer, the Leo King.

The first "eclipse" begins on 8/18. I use quotation marks because this eclipse is a slight penumbral eclipse that will not be visible but will be palpable. This petite player will pack a powerful punch. Like a slit in time, this eclipse will open the veils of illusion and delusion to help us see where we have been hiding and who we have been hiding. Our authentic joyful loving nature will finally emerge. We may feel like the chains are gone and we are finally free to live our divine blueprint even though the world outside still doesn't appear to be ready for us. Even so, the stage has been set and we get to peek through the curtains to catch a glimpse of our new life. 

The second of the three eclipses kits off the energies of September right at the beginning of the month. This eclipse is the most powerful of the three. It will require us to make major life decisions that are tied to our authentic selves. Will we be true to our joyful loving nature or will we decide to stay in the old heavy energies of societal "shoulds?" There may be such a schism between the old and the new worlds that we must make a choice between the two. We may feel that we have dimensional dementia as we go through this passageway into the 5th dimension. It may be confusing for us until we adjust to the new energies.

The last of the three eclipses occurs on September 16. This eclipse shows us that the old ways are crumbling and the things we've come to lean on aren't there anymore. What is no longer in resonance with this new world must be left behind. We are packing our bags and there is only so much room for our stuff. This is a time of sorting and letting go. Much of the stuff we will be sorting through is our relationships. Ouch. But we can't drag what or who has been dragging us down into the lighter vibration. When we completely detach from the past, we make room to create our new lives. Step by step, we slowly and carefully work to create our new life in a new time and in a new way.

Last week, the song "Time Passages" from Al Stewart kept going through my head. After reviewing the lyrics, I understand why. We are all going through a major time passage. May we all have the courage, clarity, and conviction to make these life-changing decisions and step into our New Earth with hearts full of love and joy.

Time Passages lyrics from Al Stewart

"It was late in December, the sky turned to snow
All round the day was going down slow
Night like a river beginning to flow
I felt the beat of my mind go
Drifting into time passages
Years go falling in the fading light
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight
Well I'm not the kind to live in the past
The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don't last
Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these
Time passages
There's something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn
Don't know why you should feel
That there's something to learn
It's just a game that you play

Well the picture is changing
Now you're part of a crowd
They're laughing at something
And the music's loud
A girl comes towards you
You once used to know
You reach out your hand
But you're all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you're in there, you're just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight"
