Virgo: In Service

RisaNewSA friend from D.C. wrote last week: “If you want to know what's happening, go down to Glenn Beck’s (Aug. 28, Restoring Honor, Lincoln Memorial) rally. If you really want to know what’s happening, go to Burning Man" (through Sept. 6th). We’re in Virgo, sign of caring for and serving humanity. From Burning Man comes a service group, Burners Without Borders (BWB), providing volunteer opportunities after the Burning Man playas are cleaned and emptied, towns and communities dismantled, and everyone re-enters the regularly accepted world. “BWB is a manifestation of what can happen when we take our values off the playa and out into the rest of the world.” They are part of the NGWS. See” burnerswithoutborders.com. News: Virgo is the sign of the Madonna, gestating new life in the “cave of the heart” to be birthed at winter solstice. Astrologically, what is above is always below. Thus a present day news report; “Chilean miners, caught underground in a collapsed mine, rescue will take months. Not until Christmas will the thirty-three men be able to emerge from within the earth.”  Let us pray to the Virgo Madonna, who understands suffering, for safety, for safety, care and protection for the 33 (Masonic Final Degree) men in their “cave” experience. When they emerge their awareness of life & love will be transformed.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Sept. 2-8 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
The season’s about to change and so must our health regimes, diets, ways we exercise and plan our day. Through this Virgo Mercury retro, it’s good to begin thinking along new lines, preparing for the coming changes in light, color, sun, shadows. These changes are reflected within ourselves, too. Relationships need extra tending so everyone doesn’t feel cold, alone, withdrawn and left out.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You will be out and about, learning new things, attending lectures, classes, gathering information. Always your life and its task, illuminating the minds of humanity, are serious and disciplined. It would be good to consider what would be playful for you, bring enjoyment, fun, calling forth your lightness and sense of spontaneity? Perhaps you need to swim.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
What constitutes family to you, whether biological, friend, group (esoteric?), colleagues, etc. matters more and more. Something’s not complete with someone or maybe you need to visit to bring forth the next developmental stage in relationship(s). Harmony is your focus with a touch of compromise (not much). Listening to others until you understand the essential message is a parallel goal. All of this brings love forth—your task.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Make contact. These two words have a depth most don’t understand. Making contact releases Love. But it must be true, real and intentional contact. It must be from the heart, connecting heart to heart, Soul-to-Soul. The results are that Love being released creates liberation for everyone. However, you are the one to begin this process. Do this ceaselessly, quietly, with heartfelt intention with all kingdoms.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
There’s a sense within that you must not only create a new plan concerning finances and resources, but that a new state of values must also come forth. If there are people close to you may want to communicate more deeply with them, sharing your values, asking what values they hold and what values you hold in common. What are your desires and aspirations for the future, based on these values?

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
You will want to come out of the shadows and into a greater light. Standing in shadows, perhaps in the shadow of another (?) is of comfort to you. However, there comes a time when we each must define ourselves, recognize our own self-identity, understand what we initiate, realize that we’re responsible, summon our confidence, and seek a new support system. Am I speaking to Virgo or Pisces? Both. For they are the shadow of the other.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
This morning at Mass I saw a drawing of a sheaf of wheat. A Virgo symbol of nourishment for humanity. I thought of Libra, and what nourishes them. Relationships, beauty, friends, equilibrium, balance, love, sacrifice, art. It’s the art of the wheat sheaf that caught my eye and I thought Librans must get back to their art in whatever form interests them. Some paint, some have galleries, some are collectors. What is your art form? It’s calling you back.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Do you sense restlessness, that there’s a group that belongs to you, that you belong in, yet somehow you can’t find it or they you? As you both search for the other, assess your present-day and future goals. They’ve changed recently or are in the process. So many of us are indecisive about the future. We must summon patience. Speak with those close to you. Ask for their visions and goals. Synthesize everyone’s.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
For one intense month the perfect execution of your work will be a priority. It always is but a new dimension has been added. Multiple ideas flow through your mind; you’re being impressed with ideas that may become ideals. There’s an inner enthusiasm. Do you need to begin something? Do you need assistance? Share your ideas with others who can assist. Diplomacy is paramount.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
What will you do when autumn begins? It’s only a month away but it seems something’s calling you, someone, somewhere. Perhaps it’s a course of study, something you want (or need) to learn. Somewhere you want to visit, travel to, discover? There also might be something you need to say somewhere far away. Something professional your ways comes (soon).

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Take extra care with your money and resources. Use this time to discriminate between what is needed and what is not. Give away what is not and then give more away. Giving provides you with meaning and a true sense of service and a liberation that allows you to move forward in your life. Give yourself three weeks.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
We are to do our best in the place(s) we find ourselves. Many of us are indecisive these days, unable to decide where we’re going, what to do when we don’t know what to do, how to provide our gifts when opportunities don’t seem to exist. Again, we (especially Pisces at this time) are to work at our best in the place(s) we find ourselves. Relationships seem to need compromise. You need some real passion and romance. OK.

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.
