Winds of Change, Uranus in Aries

RisaNewSUranus (revolution, new culture and civilization) entered Aries last Thursday, just after the Gemini/Sag full moon Festival of Humanity. The last time Uranus was in Aries (1927-1936) we had the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, the Depression, the Roaring Twenties, Roosevelt’s New Deal and the discovery of Pluto. What will happen this time? Sunday morning Jupiter (great expansions) enters Aries (all things new). Tuesday, June 8th, Jupiter and Uranus conjunct (join) in Aries. From now on humanity will be on a journey to a new and unusual place. It could be rebellious and filled with uprisings (Aries, Uranus). The world we begin to live in will make us pioneers, embarking upon a new world, one we must create ourselves. It’s called the “new culture and civilization” and humanity, along with the New Group of World Servers, is being called to create and build this new world. In the times to come not many will be comfortable, some will be called to adventure, others will seek wide open spaces, a better life that goes beyond the bounds of what we’ve known before. We’ll see wild (Uranus) expansion (Jupiter), unpredictable behaviors, entrepreneurial expansions, political and financial unrest, natural disasters, and an action-oriented (Aries) spirit come alive in humanity. Quietly last week Saturn turned direct in Virgo. Saturn enters Libra July 21st. Libra is the sign of balance and poise. Saturn in Libra may safeguard us by restricting, confining and, limiting the energetic boundlessness of Uranus and Jupiter in Aries. We hope this is so. Otherwise, the sky may fall.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of June 3–June 9, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You’re known for individuality. Only Aquarius rivals you in this. In the weeks, months and years to come this urge for individual creativity and freedom becomes extreme. Because you must initiate changes needed in the present culture, the planet Uranus will radicalize you even more so that at times you’ll feel you have no control. Expect unexpected changes—the Divine Plan to “make all things new”—for which you’re partially responsible.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You need to be out and about most of the time because you feel at times a certain claustrophobia. Sometimes you find must be and work alone so your intuitive and investigative gifts can be fully accessed. As usual you avoid anything that feels like an opposition, attempting instead to flow with the accepted reality. Something or someone shatters this calmness. It is not comfortable, yet it’s needed.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Your hopes, dreams, wishes, friends, groups and associates seem to go into a tailspin either in your mind or in real life. This is because your life’s goals and ambitions suddenly changed, an unplanned unpredictable event. Your mind moves into confusion and you become unsettled. As your life twists and turns you find yourself becoming liberated and more forward thinking. You didn’t think that could happen.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Flashes of intuition and insight help you make quick decisions that are authoratative, leading others to understand situation often cast in fog, miasmas and illusions. Maintain independent at all costs. However, begin to explain your actions to others so they can understand step by step the why and how of your choices. This makes your endeavors more professional.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
In the coming weeks and months, even years, notice an advanced philosophy of life that creates a utopian view of how to live your life with others. You may (help) create or join a community with like-minded people who realize the ideas of the past need updating in order to build the new culture and civilization and adopt the Aquarian Laws & Principles. There will also be more travel, to unusual places far and wide.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Do think about your investments and resources held in common with others. They may begin to behave erratically, with sudden ups and downs. Look into all things financial, attempting to stabilize them. A suggestion is to invest in gold and silver even when the market shifts and changes, maintain these precious materials in safekeeping for coming times. You are intuitive enough to understand.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Relationships, marriages, partnerships, close intimate connections may experience sudden change and spur of the moment decisions, the consequences of which last far into the future. Tend carefully to the development of stability through the ability to communicate and thus absorb unexpected upsets. Everything in our lives is turning upside down in order to create new values and the new materialism. This will create new relationships.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Nothing routine will occur in your work or health areas of life. The changes that come forth will help develop your ability to express original ideas for the work place. Try not to become too nervous. Instead focus your energy into inventing things. As you upset the apple carts wherever you are, you become the change maker, which is greatly needed everywhere. Tend to you health in between times.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Within your great level of creativity you find the need for more self-control, which would also provide you with more self-knowledge. This is interesting. Through discipline you come to know yourself, your needs and a new level of creativity. Don’t speculate. That’s costly. Instead focus on independent thinking and how to break with all that old and crying for liberation. What would that be?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You attempt to bring constancy and calmness to your home. Know that sudden upsets may occur there along with your seeking more freedom. Attempt to balance your needs with family needs. Give them more responsibilities (teach them first how to perform tasks) and inform them of the astrological energies bringing change. They’ll

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18

Be aware that your thinking, communicating and interacting with others will become so spontaneous that changes will begin to appear everywhere. You will unexpectedly strike out in different directions, going here and there. A sort of rebelliousness erupts, an aspect of advanced and new thinking. You will become interested in science, technology and sources of light. And will begin to think more and more about community. It’s where you belong.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You experience your income and finances are not stable. This isn’t a criticism or judgment. It’s simply a fact. And so in the coming times, this will continue. Material things will come and go, unforeseen events will upset plans. This is not due to anything you’ve created. All conditions in our world are changing, even the waters you swim in. The new world is being created. It’s not here yet. We’ve just begun. Stay behind the ferns and rest for a while.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.
