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).

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
