This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Full, Leo Moon, in the aftermath of a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse that took place just after midnight on Jan. 21st. All eclipses are connected, and Monday’s eclipse refers back to the New Moon solar eclipse that occurred in Capricorn during the Epiphany celebrations of Jan. 5-6.
This eclipse happens to fall on what is known as the Blood Moon. The Blood Moon is an annual event. People seem to be focusing on it more than usual this time around due to the fact that it falls on an eclipse this year. Yes, for sure this adds to the significance of things, but hardly anyone on the planet is conscious enough to grasp their meaning, so if anyone tries to tell you what it’s all about, take it with a grain of salt. Without overdramatizing this event, it may be enough to know that every eclipse is an evolutionary milestone.
If we attach any importance to the star placements on January 21st, suffice it to say that we have ticked off one more notch on our trip through the Eye of the Needle. For those of you who want a little more to chew on, it’s safe to say that anyone born on or near Jan. 1 and 2, April 21 and 22, July 24 and 25, and Oct. 24 and 25, and anyone born with planets situated in the early degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, or Scorpio will feel the effects of this Blood Moon eclipse more than the rest of us.
I got mentally overwhelmed by all of this a couple of weeks ago. For the past nine years I have been wracking my brain trying to figure it out. At long last I have succumbed to the realization that even with what I know about the stars, I can’t make head nor tail of some of the stuff that’s coming down the pipeline right now. In a last ditch attempt to access a bit of clarity I decided to open the Hopi bible, a book called “Hotevilla – The Hopi Shrine of the Covenant – Microcosm of the World” written by Thomas Mails and Dan Evehema, in an attempt to anchor myself to some semblance of truth. The words that follow come directly from that text. They were recorded about 1,000 years ago. I quote them here, because as of today, the Hopi Prophecies are the closest thing that I can think of that might have some bearing on the circumstances that we currently find ourselves in:
“To this day we are shadowed with deep sadness. Our attempts to communicate with the Bahanna [White Man’s] government have failed completely. Our words of honesty and truthfulness did not move the Bahanna, it seems he looks at us as creatures of the past, so-called stupid savages, smelling creatures who don’t know how to develop the land. It seems the Bahanna has no understanding, their thoughts are entangled like cobwebs where nothing grows, where only destruction grows.
“The Bahanna do possess high knowledge, they construct mighty tools, they drill into our Mother Earth and move mountains. They make mighty weapons and fly into the air like birds creating fear and terror all around them.
“But we don’t think they believe in their Gods, their priests, their Bible. As a whole they do not have religion. We do not need any of that. We are satisfied with the order of our Great Creator, whose light does not blind us and does not lead us into confusion. Instead His light brightens the road, so that we can absorb its great wisdom and live like humans. While the Bahanna are destroying our world by their inventions they are blinded to such an extent that they do not even know their own origin. We do not make fun of or mock the Bahanna – what we say is only a reminder of their past, the terrible damage they have done to the minds of just people on this land and on other lands which can never be repaired with all their wealth. We need none of that. Perhaps there is still time for this land to live on under the laws of our Great Spirit and our Great Creator.
“These are the things we desire. We are very sad for our life of today. It is heading down the direction you have created for us. The tide is gathering and the high tide which sweeps us away may not be far off.
“The time will come when from the earth will arise a mystic fog which will dilute the minds and hearts of all people. Their guidelines of wisdom and knowledge will falter, the Great Laws of our Creator will dissolve in the minds of the people. Children will be out of control and will no longer obey the leaders; immorality and the competitive war of greed will flourish.
“Few will abide by their beliefs, and their attempts to transform darkness into light will be in vain.”
If you are interested, and wish to read more, this text goes on and on and is loaded with powerful information. As we stand suspended on the line that separates light and dark, and life and death, it might be time to look beyond our surface values long enough to grasp what the old ones had to say. I hope that some of what’s written here touches you in some way and I invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
