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.

Mars in Libra, War Meets Peace

Mars in Libra, War Meets Peace

 Mars entered Libra Tuesday and is most likely trying to find a way out. Mars, on the personality-building level, is desire, action, anger, assertion, aggression and war—how the personality stumbles toward peace, which, along with education, Libra tries to offer. Libra is air, the mind, Right Human Relations, learning how to balance relationships with equanimity. Sometimes Libra encounters war. She backs off, turns toward mediation, non-violent (compassionate) communication, things beautiful, reasonable and good.

‘Build a Lighted House’

‘Build a Lighted House’

 

We are more than half way through the year, moving swiftly toward winter solstice when three great time cycles end, and three greater time cycles begin. Humanity stands at the crossroads—to envision, build and construct the new Aquarian world, the new culture and civilization. Or not. As the Piscean Age was the Age of Religion, the Aquarian Age is the Age of Humanity—no longer an age of kings, pharaohs or corporate ruling governments.

Uranus Square Pluto

Uranus Square Pluto

This Sunday (overshadowing our future) Uranus (revolution) and Pluto (transformation) join together. They will create the same revolutionary demand for freedom as they did in the 1960s. Then, Uranus joined Pluto in Virgo and a new awareness of freedom appeared within humanity. This week Uranus joins (squares) Pluto again. Squares inform humanity new directions must be taken. Our previous directions (ways of life) are no longer available.

Light Beams, Interplay, Mutability, Duality & Constant Flux (June 7-13)

This week’s occultation of Venus (passing over the Sun) overshadows our world for months to come, signaling a series of financial situations leading us further into a state of economic awareness (there is a crisis). Venus’ occultation also prepares us for the upcoming June 24 Uranus square Pluto (revolution and transformation of the ‘60s reappears).

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
