Festival of Humanity, World Invocation

RisaNewSThursday is the full moon (6.33 degrees Gemini/Sag), the Gemini solar Festival of Humanity and World Invocation Day. This is the 3rd major full moon festival of the year. At the moment of the full moon (4:07 p.m. Pacific time), the initiating idea of Aries to build the new culture and civilization and the sustaining of this idea by Taurus  are distributed to Earth, awaiting humanity and all Earth’s kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human). All over the world, the New Group of World Servers and the women and men of Goodwill will recite the Great Invocation (thus World Invocation Day), the great Mantram of Direction for humanity (it follows the Our Father prayer, given to humanity during Atlantean times). At the three Festivals (Aries, Taurus, Gemini) the Spirit of Resurrection releases forces for the restoration (Aries), enlightenment (Taurus) and reconstruction (Gemini) of humanity and the earth. At this Gemini Festival we invoke the Spirit of Resurrection to release the Forces of Reconstruction to rebuild, reconstruct, and create, with the help of humanity (enlightened world disciples), the new sharing society, the new culture and civilization for the Aquarian Age. During this Festival of Humanity we (NGWS) turn our focus outward (radiating from the Ashram) and (to Earth). We direct ourselves to the needs of a waiting humanity; waiting for God to assist them in their release from suffering and for enlightenment. This is our task. So that we may do this together, we recite the Great Invocation during the Gemini festival. Also on Monday, the Full Moon Day, Uranus (revolution, surprising and unexpected), enters Aries (all things new) signifying the true, outer manifestation of the Aquarian Age has arrived. What the 1960s seeded - the hopes, wishes and promises - now comes forth. (Concert notes: Saturday, 5/29, Holy Cross Church, 8pm, Illuminated, Maya Barsacq conducts. Extraordinary.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of May 27–Jun 2, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Careful how you interact with others. Don’t rely only on verbal promises of prosperity and/or monetary realities maintaining their previous value. Rely on instinct and then intuition to direct and guide you into knowing the quality of a person, event, resource, and investment. You will be called to courage. Your entire world will turn upside-down. Maintain the stability of hope. Or the stability of giving everything away.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Be aware that you make impressions on others leading them to follow your every thought, word and deed. Therefore it is important that you complete all promises, plans, agreements and agendas. You’re attempting to initiate new projects impacting us far into the future. Proceed forward. You may be one of the only people able to accomplish this. However, are you tending to yourself and your own home?

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You may feel overly excited, anxious while needing more rest. You also may not be sleeping well – either dreaming or remaining awake. The new planetary activity, Uranus in Aries, is shaking everything up, shifting and revolutionizing our realities. Your sensitive body may be feeling this. Maintain a light diet of fresh foods, eliminate anything excess, drink more water and just love more. Look to the stars for direction.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
It’s important to maintain close connections to the group(s) you identify and work with. All interactions are opportunities for contact. Seek to understand the hopes and wishes of others. However your life looks now, greater levels of community will be available to you and your family later. Maintain health by drinking more water, taking more Vitamin C and the anti-inflammatory turmeric.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You may need to rearrange your work situation. There could be either conflict leading to greater harmony or some communication needs. Perhaps your job interests, abilities and/or responsibilities have shifted. Perhaps you’re being honored for excellence. Whatever it is, look to others around you—above and below, side by side—creating a cross of gratitude for their qualities and goodness, as a great leader would.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
You may be creating many and various lists consisting of places you would like to travel to, visit, learn about, study and even assume a new identity. Simultaneously, do relationships need tending, accounts reconciled, responsibilities completed, and problems pondered and eased? Spending time alone help you complete projects. You may dream more at night traveling the subtle fields.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Are you harboring a secret, or putting away money, or in need of something someone else has? Is there money or resources you share with another? Is everything clear and aboveboard? These times call you to be frugal, economically prudent, thrifty and careful, conserving money and resources purposefully. You might teach others very soon about these things. You will, with efficiency, information and brilliance.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Relationship interactions and communications are most important now so listen very carefully to what others say and have the intentions to respond with care and keen interest. This creates emotional equilibrium. Being uncooperative creates imbalance and the sense you have neglected a responsibility. Direct focused attention toward others now. Only from you can they feel special care, love and safety.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Career matters assume new dimensions, co-workers need more communication, you want to improve your health and tend more to the necessities of your life. Realizing this takes balancing, you proceed slower than usual, foregoing adventure in order to create a long-term plan of practical goals. Maybe. Your greatest achievement is accepting your present life. It’s complex, yes?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Setting out each day’s agenda and priorities allow you to have more clarity and focus, which brings more wisdom to things both routine and unexpected. Try not to criticize anyone or anything in words or thoughts, realizing everyone’s doing their best within different developmental stages. You are, too. New opportunities appear at first as philosophical ideas and goals. Rest more so you can imagine more. Don’t push yourself.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Home, family, property and parents become very important in the coming weeks. Tend to all of these, attempting to improve relationships with family while also improving the beauty and organization of your home environment. Do nothing that unsettles personal or family’s safety, challenge no one, and calm any tensions with exercise, prayer, vitamins, minerals and herbs. With Uranus (your ruler) entering Aries, anything can happen.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You may be traveling to teach, work, create and/or to study this summer. Begin planning meetings, conferences, classrooms and/or curriculum. You will definitely be communicating on a large scale, either personally or through writing, speaking, tele- or video-conferencing. You will gain in knowledge, clarity, happiness and goodness. Others too then prosper. But you must make very difficult decisions first.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
