Points of Light Within the Square

Points of Light Within the Square

Friday (Jan. 11) is the first new moon of 2013 (22 degrees Capricorn). The moon and Sun, joined by Mercury, offer a message to humanity. It’s time to learn how to create and build the new world government, future structures and the new culture and civilization. We receive this information through “impressions’ —patterns and symbols impressed upon our minds and hearts by our inner spiritual teachers.

Tracking the New Era Community

Tracking the New Era Community

 

Well here we are in the New Year of 2013. We survived the end of 2012. We’re shifting into the new Aquarian Age. We now must become “trackers” and builders of the new culture and civilization, creating the New Era Community.

Pluto and Venus in Capricorn will help us as will the Capricorn new moon, the first of 2013 occurring early morning Friday (21 degrees). The “Gate” to the new world opens up for us.

Darkness Verging on Light

Darkness Verging on Light

 

Thursday’s Sagittarius new moon—the last of 2012—prepares us for Winter Solstice and the Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers. Uranus becomes stationary direct (4.37 Aries) Thursday. The New Age is right on schedule. In the sky Thursday and Friday are the Geminids meteor showers (possibly 50 an hour) dropping light into the minds of humanity, building the Rainbow Bridge. Anticipation, expectancy, hope is everywhere.

Gifts: Giving and Giving Some More

Gifts: Giving and Giving Some More

We’re in the season of gifting, a holiday ritual that, for some, brings terror (What do I give? Who am I? What do they like? I have no money!), and for others it’s a way of being festive, showing gratitude, participating with family, friends and loved ones and giving all we have unconditionally.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
