The Harmonizers

The Harmonizers

 

The Sun is in Sagittarius, sign of good food, journeys, justice and jurisprudence (study of law). Thursday is Thanksgiving, a day of Gratitude. The day is void-of-course (moon making no connections with planets, therefore we have difficulty making connections and creating comfort). This can be complicated as Thanksgiving is a day of making contacts through gratitude and great feasting. With Sun (personality) and Venus (loved ones) squaring (challenge) Neptune (confusion or deeply religious), we may be rather baffled, the food may not cook in time or taste the same, people may not show up, we may lose our way. Anything can go wrong.

Preparing. Something’s Coming.

Preparing. Something’s Coming.

 

In our last week of Scorpio, sign of Discipleship, the hidden, sacred and the Ageless Wisdom teachings, we begin inner preparations for the upcoming season when dark turns into the light. This time of preparation is referred to as Advent (advenire, Latin), when we sense “something new is about to arrive.”

The Election in Mercury Retrograde

The Election in Mercury Retrograde

Uh, oh. That’s what many astrologers are saying when viewing the Nov. 6 election day astrology chart. How could this occur we ask? It must be some cosmic joke that allows us to possibly revisit the contested events of the 2000 election.

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).

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
