“As planet Earth has been reborn and since the 24 May 2017, we have moved into the new Epoch of planet earth’s Being and therefore humankind, something immense is shifting deep within us and nowhere more profoundly than in our loving relationships with each other. We have to find new and higher levels of wholeness within ourselves, and then within our most intimate relationships with each other.
We are being called to step more and more into our authentic REAL, THE SOUL REAL, the truth of who and what we are: – at soul level. To me this means the return to truth and wholeness.”
The Kingdom of God Within You
There is a beautiful accord between the teachings of Jesus Christ to enter the “kingdom of God within you” and the teachings of Yoga set forth by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita to restore King Soul, the reflection of God in man, to its rightful rulership of the bodily kingdom, with full realization of the soul’s godly states of consciousness. When man is settled in that inner kingdom of divine consciousness, the awakened intuitive perception of the soul pierces the veils of matter, life energy, and consciousness and uncovers the God-essence in the heart of all things….
Raja Yoga, the royal way of God-union, is the science of actual realization of the kingdom of God that lies within oneself.

“Mercury stations and turns retrograde on August 12th, 2017. The retrograde will last for 23 days, until Mercury turns direct again on September 4th.
The current Mercury Retrograde cycle is closely linked to the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st. Gravitating around the Sun, Mercury will turn direct exactly at 28°, which is the degree of the Solar Eclipse in Leo. Some things related to the Solar Eclipse will come to light around September 4th.
…this Mercury cycle will give you great insights into what it is that keeps you away from the path of your purpose.
The theme of the Mercury Retrograde cycle is ‘complete the incompletions’, or more exactly, purge those patterns of thoughts and behaviors that prevent you from accessing the fullness of your being.
Mercury Retrograde takes place during the Eclipse season, the time of the year when our soul realigns with the path of our purpose. We need to get ready for it, and our mind, our Mercury, this guardian of the Self, needs to get ready too.
Whatever it is that keeps you stuck in the past, needs to be purged now. Clean your mind of any outdated beliefs, negative thoughts, compulsive behaviors, preconceptions and prejudices that hinder your growth….This is not the usual Mercury clean up. This time you need to go deeper. This time you really need to confront those unhealthy thoughts you’ve been avoiding for so long. All the deep ingrained judgements, all the resentments that toxify your mind and your spirit, all the lies, the fears, the limiting beliefs you’ve been telling yourself for too long.
Mercury never strays far from the Sun! […] Its energy is blended with the energy of the Sun.
And what does Mercury stand for? The Mind. What does the Sun stand for? The Self. That’s why it is so natural for us humans to identify with our mind….we literally believe that we are what we think. We are one with our mind…..And what happens when Mercury is retrograde? It comes even closer to the Sun, it comes even closer to us, it merges with us…..If we are not “awake”, if we don’t live in awareness, during Mercury Retrograde we are usually forced to “wake up” and take care of what we’ve been neglecting. For this, we might need to dodge all the chaos we’ve been creating while asleep.
The Two Phases of Mercury Retrograde
Every Mercury Retrograde is a little different. You’re harmonizing with a new world each time. However, regardless of ever-changing sky, each single Mercury Retrograde consists of two main phases.
The 1st retrograde phase – Analyze: From Mercury Retrograde until Mercury’s conjunction to the Sun – August 12th, 2017 – August 25th, 2017 (14 days)
During this phase Mercury is contemplative, introspective and seeks inner meaning. We now want to discover the reason, the meaning and the purpose behind everything. Right now, we are unlikely to be satisfied with easy, superficial answers. This is a great time to analyze and reflect. Make sure you have a diary to record your stream of thought.
The 2nd retrograde phase – Observe and Insight: From Mercury’s conjunction to the Sun until Mercury’s goes direct – August 26th, 2017 – September 3rd, 2017 (9 days)
Mercury is now “born again” with a clear, uncorrupted sense of purpose…. Mercury now takes what he has learned in the previous cycle and brings it to the “next level” of awareness…. Emotions and facts are now in sync. The process of creation can begin.
Pay attention to those thoughts that come to you right now….These messages are very important to your soul evolution. You have to listen to what your mind wants to tell you.
Now is the time to deal with all the incompletions, all the broken promises or vows, all the unfulfilled hopes, and to do that, you have to be radically honest during the process. Will that be easy? No.
It is difficult to be completely honest with yourself. We have a natural tendency to delay experiencing the facts, the truth, which is exactly what Mercury stands for, the here and the now.
This Mercury Retrograde cycle is about keeping your mind open. Being willing to question yourself and dig deep to get to the Source of things, so healing can happen at the root.

The gates of the past and present are now open as our energy enters the door into the abyss, but all that we can see is darkness… It is imperative that we all understand the VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory) prospective on the importance of this eclipse and how it will impact the characters of each and every person and their environment….the information which I bring to you will be more of a mundane philosophical prospective of historical phenomenon in the past and present, and how we will re-create the future.
One by one each astrological characteristic will be going through a metamorphosis which will be so profound that by the time the next eclipse in spring of 2018 arrives we will not be the same people. Aquarius will end their eclipse cycle in February, Leo in August. And here we go again, Capricorn/Cancer series will begin as it did in 2009. In one month, Virgo will give the torch of Jupiter to Libra, and in two months Scorpio will break each and every shackle of Saturn, destroy it, put it back together, and give it to Sagittarius for their lessons in karma.
Just as the Lunar Eclipse on August 7/8, 2017 is a recreation of past events, strangely, this eclipse is itself unique. The total solar eclipse is at 28 degrees in Leo on the 21st of August and is exactly the same degree as it was in 1998. Basically, this means that it will touch on events of 1998. Additionally, it also touches on events from August, 2009. However, the universe is not done with Leo at this degree as the questioning will remain open for discussion until 2028.
….whether by domain or by association this eclipse will affect each and every one of us….. Many people will be infatuated with doing things their way just to fulfill their self-satisfaction even if it hurts others, and thins will be all about winning and overcoming others. Appearing almost as if it is a game of who is going to come out the best, the reality is that there is no challenge. This will be a completion of a phase or a momentous modification in course of matters concentrating on home, family, and health. It may be that a relationship ends or there is a completely new beginning.

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE | NEW MOON in LEO rises as the Queen within takes her throne on the seat of the Heart of Love.
Divine Feminine energy comes through the veil to awaken humanity to its true power in love.
A new way is calling as the outmoded, short-sighted, repressive ways of the Patriarchy are no longer tolerable or permissible. We the people awaken and new leaders step forth.
Together we rise in consciousness for an inclusive humanity. Together, we cast away the illusion of separatism and step forth to heal the divides within ourselves, our partnerships and our communities.
Each of us has the power to shift and realign with the heart, as we let go, forgive, ask for forgiveness, and move through our collective grief to our seat of personal power within the heart of love.

Many of the themes related to this eclipse will be strongly activated during the first week or so of September. This is when Mercury ends its retrograde (September 5th) and stations forward at the same spot where this eclipse is occurring, all while in a trine with Uranus. At that time there can be new developments, and potentially surprises, that will help us in how we can proceed forward in our new beginnings.
What is your heart telling you to create at this time? What steps can you take to help you in fulfilling your passions? What possibilities out there currently excite you and perhaps make you feel more free? What is getting in the way of you expressing your heart more? In what area of your life do you need to be the King, Queen, or Superstar? How can you express yourself in ways that are more innovative, authentic and reflective of who you truly are?
