We All Become Scorpios

We All Become Scorpios

On Thursday, Mars enters Scorpio; sign of discipleship and of reorientation (into higher regions) for humanity—Hercules, who, through overcoming our Twelve Labors (signs) becomes the world disciple. With Mars in Scorpio we all become very serious personalities, with intense wants, desires and aspirations.

Venus in Cancer—Overshadowing

Venus in Cancer—Overshadowing

This is our last week of Leo. The Sun enters Virgo Wednesday. The month is overshadowed by Venus in the sign of Cancer. Venus is the Soul (star) of the Earth, where our God (Sanat Kumara) came from and these mornings Venus is the Morning Star. Mars is always in the news these days. But Mars is humanity’s past. Venus is our future. Returning to Mars is a retrograde action.

New energies and impulses from the heart of the Universe are beginning to critically influence life on Earth (and on all the planets circling the Sun). These energies are accelerating all events, creating a trajectory of force and of progress directed only toward the creation of the new age.

Leo—Lionhearted and Royal

Leo—Lionhearted and Royal

Happy Birthday, leo. Leo is the sign of friendship and fun, of children, games and self-identity through what one creates. Leo’s hair is a mane rising up from regal high forehead. The lion appears on the arms (logo) of many royal houses. Richard the Lionhearted re-captured the Holy Land.

The Retro, Meteors & the Full Moon

The Retro, Meteors & the Full Moon

Mercury retrograde is in full force. Reaching outward, we’re pulled inward. Unable to maintain “business as usual” for multiple reasons (the retrograde, solar activity/flares altering our electromagnetic field, proton streams of positive ions, the planetary shifts, Uranus/Pluto, the old reality attempting to override the new, etc.), some of us feel paralyzed with tiredness, exhausted from pain, weary with busyness, longing to slow down, rest a while, contemplate individual realities, ideas and perceptions. Instead, we experience disruptive change, things upside- down, and wonder where we’ll find the resiliency to maintain our balance.

Obedience of the Heart

Obedience of the Heart

Thursday is overshadowed by the Cancer new moon (27 degrees). There is a quote in Labors of Hercules that explains the task given to Hercules during Cancer. Hercules represents humanity (the world disciple), living on Earth, encountering life experiences, given tasks and being tested. In the Cancer task, the Fourth Labor, Hercules must make a choice.

Mercury & Uranus Retrograde

Mercury & Uranus Retrograde

After Thursday’s calm Taurus moon, Friday, the 13th, we’re shaken up as Uranus, the star of revolution (the cool cat of the zodiac), changes direction, retrograding at 8:32 degrees Aries (till Dec. 13).

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
