Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Simultaneous (Jewish, Catholic, Esoteric astrological) religious and spiritual festivals occur this weekend, creating within humanity coordinated, synchronized and harmonized prayers to God. Concurrent religious festivals form the foundation of the Aquarian new world religion. We are at the end of Holy Week, leading to Easter Sunday’s Resurrection Festival.

Holy Thursday night is the Last Supper followed by our Lord’s (Pisces World Teacher) betrayal by Judas (his role to play) for 30 pieces of silver.

I suppose there’s nothing wrong with tossing yourself a little nod of approval every now and then. That seems to be the case this week as the City of Santa Cruz gears up for its official Proclamation Day. For those of you who have attended events where a proclamation from the city’s mayor was in order, you already know much of the script features one word repeatedly—whereas.

What would get you to do more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

What would get you to do  more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

Just lower prices I think. More advertising. I do try to shop locally as much as possible but sometimes the price is too high. It's understandable as to why they are what they are, but lower prices would help a lot.

Palm Sunday & Mercury Stationary Direct

Palm Sunday & Mercury Stationary Direct

Sun square Pluto on Thursday challenges us to bring everything hidden into the light of day. The light transforms and uplifts. This aspect between Sun and Pluto reflects the prayer from the Upanishads (ancient Vedic Hindu prayer), “Lead us O Lord, from darkness to light, from the unreal to the real, from death to immortality, from chaos to beauty.” 
 
Thursday is influenced by Jupiter, the planet of expansion and the heart of the Aquarian Age. We need, in our world, the light and reality of immortality to create beauty out of the present purposeful chaos.

Aries Fire and All Things New

Aries Fire and All Things New

The new moon of the new spiritual (spring season) year occurs Thursday morning, at 2.22 degrees Aries. Mercury retro and Uranus are poised, like messenger-sentries, on either side of the new moon. Humanity may be impressed with an idea (Mercury) that becomes a great ideal concerning our future (Uranus). We’re in the full energetic stream of Aries now. Spring has arrived and new life is emerging in the Northern Hemisphere. The new Spiritual Year began at Spring Equinox as the Sun entered initiating Aries, sign of the mind, of fire, where all ideas begin and where the fiery impulse to take action actually happens in form and matter.

In Aries (where all new things begin) for the next seven years is Uranus, planet of revolution and the new archetypes needed to create the new culture and civilization. Mercury retro joined Uranus in Aries March 18 and will again April 22, Earth Day. Calling humanity to rise up, revolutionize, absorb the new archetypes and create the new world, together. Perhaps Mercury/Uranus will “present” a “solar event” on Earth Day. There is a direct relationship between planetary alignments and solar activity. Unlocking solar codes allows us to prepare for solar events.

Three months ago, we were preparing for the holidays and the new year. Now, it’s all about spring, which arrives next week. Ready or not, here it comes. And so, too, does a new season that is hopefully full of insights and, perhaps, the manifestation of some of your deeper desires—your “dreams,” hopes and wishes. Oh, those, you say? Where are they? What have you done lately to fuel your innermost passions and desires?

Blocking access to UCSC

Blocking access to UCSC

Do you think blocking access to the UCSC campus is an effective form of protest? Why?


Yes, it's an effective form of protest because it gets attention, and that’s what they want.

Good Times Holiday Giving

Giving Where It Helps

 

Giving Thanks: The Thought-Form of Solution

We are in the time and under the influence of Sagittarius, sign of the wanderer, good food, good music, and the joy (Jupiter as ruler) that occurs from giving to others while simultaneously giving thanks from our hearts. Having the Thanksgiving holiday during the month of Sag is not a mistake. No other sign understands joy (an aspect of the Soul) as Sag (except Pisces when not in despair). “Sag is a beam of directed and focused light. The beam reveals a greater light ahead, illuminating the Way to the center of the Light,” emitting the Ray of Joyfulness. Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; in the form of prayers, thoughts, feelings, wishes, hopes and greetings. Gratitude is something we still need to learn. Gratitude creates goodwill. Together, gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution” for humanity and our world’s problems. Gratitude and goodwill are the prerequisites for the reappearance of the Christ, the Aquarian World Teacher. In Ancient Wisdom texts it is written, “being grateful is the hallmark of one who is enlightened.” Gratitude comes from the Soul—the characteristics of which are love and wisdom (Ray 2). Gratitude is scientifically and occultly (mental, not emotional) a releasing agent. Gratitude liberates us and everything around us. Also a service to others, gratitude is deeply scientific in nature, releasing us from the past and laying open our future path leading to the new culture and civilization, the new laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarian, the Age of Friendship and Equality. The Hierarchy lays much emphasis upon gratitude. Let us be grateful this year and this season together. And so now the days of light illuminating the darkness begin (December’s festivals and feast days). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am grateful for all of you, my readers.

What charities would you like to see people support this season?

Big Basin Vineyards

I was just in the process of purchasing a bottle of Big Basin’s 2012 Homestead in Vinocruz when Matt Ryan walked into the store. Ryan manages the tasting room, sales and the mailing list at Big Basin, and, considering the popularity of their wines, he’s a very busy man.
