Scorpio ... and Things of the Night

Scorpio ... and Things of the Night

The Scorpio Solar Festival, full moon, occurs Monday at 7 degrees Scorpio/Taurus sometime after noontime. We have both Libra and Scorpio seed thoughts influencing us during these times of change and transformation. “I choose the way that leads between two great lines of force.” (Libra’s seed thought) articulates for us a unique time in which humanity in the U.S. must choose not only between two candidates (elections are Tuesday, Nov. 6) but also decide on how our world will be in the future.

Scorpio: Transformation and Reorientation

Scorpio: Transformation and Reorientation

On Thursday, California, the entire West Coast and many regions of the U.S. will experience the Great Shakeout—drills to help prepare for earthquakes and practicing how to be safe. (See shakeout.org.) The Orionids meteor showers can be seen Saturday and Sunday prior to dawn. After our last days of Libra’s choice we begin the month of Discipleship and the Nine Tests as Sun enters the sign of Scorpio. Everyone begins wearing sunglasses.

Mercury And Saturn Enter Scorpio

Mercury And Saturn Enter Scorpio

The planet of communication (Mercury) and the planet of structure and discipline (Saturn) entered Scorpio, sign of Discipleship and the Nine Tests, last Friday. They slipped out of Libra (did we choose the path of the past or the unknown future we must create?) and quietly entered the dark discipleship waters of Scorpio. Saturn remains in Scorpio for 2=plus years (until 2015).

The Road Taken

The Road Taken

We are in Libra now, the sign of creating Right Relations with our world and all we encounter. Libra is also the sign of balance. We oscillate between two opposing points until a balance is achieved. In Libra, we make a serious, spiritual life choice. Do we return to previous realities or move forward into the new, eventually into Scorpio, sign of the Nine Tests, of death, regeneration, warriorship, discipleship and triumph? During Libra’s interlude we assess the two paths ahead. We understand Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken”: Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. And sorry I could not travel both. And be one traveler. Long I stood. And looked down one as far as I could, To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, just as fair. And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear.

International Day of Peace at Autumn Equinox

International Day of Peace at Autumn Equinox

As Archangel Michael, the great protector, assumes protection of the Earth, the Sun enters Libra (autumn equinox) and autumn in northern latitudes begins. We are in the midst of the dark half of the year, leading to winter solstice. Libra is the sign of Right Relationships created through intentions for goodwill, the equation that leads to peace. On Friday, inaugurating Libra and the autumn season, the International Day of Peace (IDP), with a Sag Moon (justice, fairness, honesty, integrity), is celebrated.

Leading Humanity Toward the Light

Leading Humanity Toward the Light

We have a busy and complex week. Friday, at the UN, the first General Assembly Forum on the Culture of Peace is convened. See Peace building tools and events—cultureofpeace.org/news/417-cpiforumatun. Saturday is the Virgo new moon (24 degrees). On the United States’ Neptune, it calls the United States to its spiritual task—to stand within and lead humanity toward that Light.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
