Pisces Light, Ends The Darkness

Pisces Light, Ends The DarknessWe are living within the Light of Pisces, the “Light of the World that ends forever the darkness of matter.” Potent words for the two fish, one facing downward toward matter and the other facing upward, yearning for the Path of Return. Connecting the two fish is a silver cord. The Pisces glyph represents the life of humanity – leaving our Spiritual home, entering Earth (form and matter), experiencing passion, suffering, attachments, separations, and eventual liberation and redemption (upliftment of all matter into the Light).

Pure Monday, Ceremony of Mutual Forgiveness

Pure Monday, Ceremony of Mutual ForgivenessThis last week of February has an added day. It’s leap year. Thursday, Mercury joins the Mars retrograde. We ponder upon many things but cannot act on them until after April 13 (Mars turns direct]. Mars retro restrains us in order that we reassess, reorder and review. Friday is the feast day of St. Matthias replacing the disciple Judas after his betrayal of Christ (a developmental stage).

The keynote at this time is preparation.

Mars Retrograde in Virgo

Mars Retrograde in VirgoEveryone has heard (and talks) about Mercury retrograde. Lesser known are Mars & Venus retrogrades, joining Mercury retrograde this year. Mars retrograded Jan. 23, a long three-month Mars retrograde. Mars, retrograding only every two years (51-84 days), is very significant for humanity. Mars provides us with the energy, assertion, desires and the will to exist, to be and to act. Mars rules our ability to proceed into the world. Mars, god of war and warriors, gives us strength and directs us outward into experiences that build our personality to become a strong vehicle for the Soul.

Dragon: Year of Imagining

Dragon: Year of ImaginingSun enters Aquarius Friday morning—the “Light that shines on Earth and across the sea.” We have returned to Earth from the summit of Capricorn; we absorbed the Light Supernal (heavenly light), radiating now from our hearts— healing light, to serve humanity in Aquarius. We become the “waters of life for thirsty humanity.” This week has several important festivals and the red planet retrograding. New moon festival (3 degrees Aquarius, “Strengthening the arms of the New Group of World Servers”) is midnight Sunday.

Passion Week, Eclipse, Full Moon, Aries Festival, Passover and Easter

We have entered a most important week of multiple festivals. Three ages and religious festivals—stages for humanity’s development—are occurring simultaneously. Aries (Age of Laws), Pisces (Age of Faith), and Aquarian (Age of Science and Humanity); Jewish, Christian/Catholic and Esoteric teachings. The first of the three Spring Festivals occurs Saturday along with the full moon, a total lunar eclipse (something in form and matter has come to an end, its usefulness completed). It’s also Passover, celebrating the passage from the Taurus to the Aries Age, symbolized by the Hebrew people’s walk of 40 years from Egypt through the Sinai Desert to Canaan (land of milk and honey), culminating with Moses receiving the 10 Commandments—laws that directed humanity through the Aries Age. Passover celebrates their safe passage out of Egypt, “the Angel passing over the Jewish homes, safeguarding their first born.” The Aries Festival (first of three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini) celebrates the love of God. Accompanying the Aries light (light of life itself) are the forces of restoration (restoring humanity’s hope) and the spirit of resurrection (uplifting humanity in need of new education, resources, direction and guidance). Guidance to be given by the New Group of World Servers. Saturday’s solar Aries festival (at the full moon lunar eclipse) is celebrated by the New Group of World Servers worldwide. Join us everyone. Sunday is Easter, celebrated by humanity worldwide. The three religious festivals arriving simultaneously signal that the coming new world religion is at hand, a synthesis and integration of all religions. We stand with our brothers and sisters everywhere in celebration. We see what is no longer needed—that which created separations between us—disappear. We stand forward together in the new light, with the spirit of resurrection directing us. Hosanna!
