Aries—The Will to Be

Aries—The Will to Be

Last week, Sun entering Aries, the new spiritual year began. Archangel Raphael assumed protection of the Earth. Raphael is the Archangel of Healing. During Aries, Raphael and the Forces of Restoration work together streaming new light and life into the Earth. They come in on the wings of the Spirit of Resurrection.

Aries is the Initiating Will-to-Be, a continuous pulse of the Life Force. Aries’ fiery aethers move through the cosmos seeking where to anchor in form and matter. Mars, presently retrograde, is the personality-ruler of Aries. Mars presents humanity with Nine Tests of the personality. With Mars retrograde our experience of Spring may be subdued, intent as we are on inner tests.

My Pal, My Buddy, My Mom

My Pal, My Buddy, My Mom

My mother (96) died last week, 10:30 a.m., Thursday, March 13, 2014. For the past nine months I never left her. I am in her home. Surrounding me everywhere are her creative (she was Leo Sun) efforts to make a beautiful home and gardens. Everything around me is my mother. However, wherever I look, her precious body is no longer here. I am devastated, in grief, in bereavement and anguish. During these last nine months all activities, each breath I took, was for my mother.

I realize in my grief that all my life I have been seeking my mother. The nine months (nine tests, gestation to birth) were very difficult. Mother’s illness demanded skills I did not possess. Often at a loss as moment-by-moment emergencies ceaselessly occurred, I stood by helpless. She would cry out “Help me, help me!” I would ask, “How can I help, Mother?” She would say, “I don’t know. Find me in your heart. Love me.” Now with her gone I do not know why I should go on.

The Three Levels of Pisces

The Three Levels of Pisces

Sunday is the Full moon Pisces Solar Festival (26 degrees) and Purim, the Jewish Festival of Queen Esther who saved the temple in Persia and her people.
In this last week of Pisces, let us understand Pisces more. Our world is made up of energy triangles (like Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes). Every person, event, kingdom functions on three levels (Personality, Soul, Spirit—the Trinity in all of creation and religions).

Spring Forward, Fall Back

Spring Forward, Fall Back

Jupiter is in the astrological news this week. Thursday Jupiter in Cancer ends a five-month retrograde (since November 2013). Jupiter is the personality-building helper (ruler) of Sagittarius. Jupiter is also the heart of the Aquarian Age. Receiving and distributing Ray 2 (Love/Wisdom) from a star in the Big Dipper, Jupiter at first expands us. Everything grows bigger. Then Jupiter blends dualities – head and heart, thinking and loving, above and below. The result is Wisdom.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
