Time of Radical Shift: A Look into the Next Cycle of 2010

spirituality_rockpathBy Maurice Fernandez (Evolutionary Astrologer)

Within three short months we see 15, yes 15, major celestial configurations blaze us with change. This is condensed and powerful energy.


I feel compelled to write this note about what we astrologers are seeing coming. We are in the beginning of a very unique time in history that will redefine the foundations of our lives. The astrological circumstances are uncommon and very dramatic. Change is likely to affect every level of our being, even though each person will feel it differently and in varying degrees of intensity. I’m writing this note so that you may make better use of this time and understand what it is about.

As astrologers we are aware of cycles that affect our existence. Because this coming cycle is very unique, I feel it is important to share this information. I will try to keep it simple and not burden you with a long text and excessive details. There are multiple planetary bodies that are gradually forming a very particular and rare alignment. This configuration began to form during the fall of 2008. Politically, that time was when the economical crisis exploded and when U. S. President Barack Obama was elected.

The configuration will move into a second phase during November 2009 and January/February 2010. (Saturn will move into the Cardinal sign of Libra and will form powerful angle to Pluto in Capricorn.) The third phase is probably the most dramatic and intense, and will occur from the end of June to the end of July 2010, when all the factors of the configuration will align together in a cross at the very beginning of Cardinal signs in astrology.

Cardinal signs are the signs of new cycles. The planets in questions are Pluto, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. These planets are slow-moving bodies and therefore it is absolutely exceptional that these slow-moving bodies end up all aligned in a cross on these very sensitive degrees! In normal circumstances, some people go through changes while others continue their routine. Here the alignment is so strong and dramatic that everyone’s life can be considerably affected. It is likely that your life will not be the same by fall 2010! The question that often arises is whether this change is bad or good. The answer is that it depends on the way one deals with the events. A conscious approach can make a difference. One thing for certain, do not expect security, consistency, and predictability during this time. Reality is bound to change fast and so it is better to move with the flow, while remaining conscious of what is going on. Flexibility is one of the most important assets during this time. This influence is analogous to a gigantic wave forming. You can ride on that wave and go farther than ever expected—experience a powerful transformation that can elevate you to new grounds. But this wave can also destroy a lot of what you are currently attached to.

Redefinition may occur in different fields. You may change vocation, relationships, location, mindsets, to name but a few. New people will move into your life, current ones may leave. New ideas and projects will develop and you may feel inspired to completely reinvent yourself! The cards are re-shuffled! This is a time of an awakening, a revolution, an internal and social revolution. Everything is shaking up. Everything.

From November 2009 until August 2010, nothing will stay still. It can be very good, but you have to learn to navigate these changes and seize opportunity when it comes. Don’t try to have it all perfect. Don’t try to keep the cake and eat it. Change can take you to a completely new and perhaps higher level of what you are about, but you will have to let go of your security during this time. It is a time for risk, reinvention, new ideas, new concepts, new vision, and the impetus to make it happen. Marriages may break, jobs and possessions may be lost, people may get sick, and simultaneously, new relationships may emerge, new passion may awaken, a completely new lifestyle is in the making. You are embarking on an adventure whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not.

My suggestion: Make peace with the idea, don’t resist the adventure. If you are accepting it, you will make the best of it. If you fight and resist it, you won’t win. This is what I mean by being open to risk taking. It may be time to take that “plunge!” Risking does not mean giving in to every silly venture. It is about hearing a calling for truth. Things you have denied, postponed, avoided, feared, but things you know were true. This is a time to be more truthful and follow a calling. Collectively, while the forces of corruption and manipulation may attempt to control the course of events, they are bound to disintegrate. Scandals will continue to hit the news. Natural events will continue to shake the earth. At worst, a war may break during summer 2010 or later because dramatic changes can spur fear and conflict. But it does not have to go that way. We are creators of our own destiny in the midst of the given circumstances. As you go through these changes, it is crucial that you take good care of your immune system because as positive as changes may be, they can overwhelm you and weaken your immune system. Eat more healthy, avoid fast sugar, ingest raw garlic and onions daily (sandwich), exercise, take time out of the intensity loop. Do not let negativity take over. These are basic tips that can keep you grounded. Importantly the situation heating up is like a piece of molten iron that can be beaten into a better form-personally and collectively.

Be an ambassador of good and avoid wasting time on trivial details. For example, as we see the earth being depleted and all resources and species dwindling, people waste time arguing if global warming is or is not happening. If it is man-made or not! IT DOESN’T MATTER! What matters is that the natural world is vanishing before our eyes because of our misaligned actions: excessive pollution, deforestation, and peaking toxicity levels are a reality beyond global warming debates. Similarly, the economy is not likely to stabilize any time soon. But perhaps, necessarily so. And so it will be with many other aspects of our lives. You will not have immediate answers. Be patient and keep doing your best. When the cycle will complete, new circumstances will emerge. This cannot be artificially rushed. These dramatic times are an opportunity for us to restructure our lives, personally and collectively. As many things are being redefined, we can relinquish bad habits and attachments, open up to new ideas, and invest in what works rather than settle for immediate gratification. Patience is another essential asset. In this context, do not expect others to change for the better if you don’t do it yourself. We blame the governments and project our frustration on distant “evils,” but fail to open our hearts ourselves. Being proactive may work better than being self-righteous.

IMPORTANT DATES TO NOTE: June 25 to August 5, 2010 November 1 to December 26, 2010.

GENERAL SUGGESTIONS: Understand this is an opportunity for all of us to reinvent ourselves in a better way. Understand there will be a price to pay, something may need to go. If you lose something or someone. Understand this is the sign of these times. Use a crisis to venture into new horizons and create something new. Understand this is an adventure and risk must be taken. Understand that this is not a time when we can expect security. We are in transition.

Listen to your inner truth. Make your life truly happen now. Take care of your immune system. Avoid bad diets in general. They render you vulnerable to opportunistic viruses. Support your friends and family. We all shall need one another for support during this transition time. Cultivate your spiritual practice. This is also important for your immune system. Do your best to do good. Whatever you seed now will have effect now and later.

There is probably more than can be said and explained, but you get the point. An incredible opportunity is arising, now and throughout 2010. This type of cycle has not happened in recent history. We can expect a certain level of destruction to occur-that is the price to pay. But the prospect of experiencing an awakening and creating a better future is now within reach. We are now in the midst of a revolution, a cultural, social, and political revolution. On a personal level, it is a conceptual, emotional, and or spiritual revolution. Truly, it is in the making!

  • This is the most inspiring, important well written information ive had to date this year. I can attest to everything that has been said in this post. As 2008 was the rude awakening for me, as i progressed thru my miserable life as a divorcee without my children. 2008 was the year i realized that something terrible was wrong in my new relationship with my long time friend, i was stuck in a mold that made no sense. 2008 i suddenly realized that that life was certainly not for me. It wasnt stregnthening me, admonishing me, advancing me or giving me confidence to do more better things, in fact it did quite the opposite. I had such an awakening in 2008, that led through to 2009, and brought me to this point, where i said enough is enough started doing what i wanted to do not what my then partner wanted from me. I finally left in January 2010. I have never felt so liberated and confident as i do now.

    I truly believe that a lot will happen this year alone, within nations, governments, communities, families indivduals. I believe that signs of the times will truly manifest itself as in the bible. The end times are coming we all need to look up be aware. Do good to all for all, starting with ourselves. We need to love be loved, love the world we live in treat it right, by starting with ourselves. And as Maurice Fernandez said, eat right! Live right!

    it is a revolution, and many changes are coming to our earth. Be watchful!

    Thank you for such an insight. It touched the very depths of my insides. I truly believe it! Thank you!

  • It is certainly true about the transitions, and new beginnings. I am Jamaican living at home. You must have heard of what is happening to my country politically, and socially.

    Personally, I have been going through stuff you would not believe. I am sure the most impact-full are yet to come.

    Thanks very much for the “leg up” I will not fight the changes at all, but will embrace them.

    May all of us who read this article be strengthened for the months even years ahead.

    Please pass the article on to friends and relatives. The need to stay in the loop.

    Thank you guys at First30days very, very much. Can you feel how much I love you? All of your article are tremendous sources of inspiration and motivation.

    Love always!
