Release of the Feminine

RisaNewSAs Above, So Below & Happy Birthday, Findhorn
As the Aquarian Age unfolds, there is a developmental task humanity will recognize as their responsibility (and gift). It is the recognition of and work (co-creation) with the Devic (Angelic Beings of Light) kingdom, the builders of all form on Earth. Working side by side with the devas (this was the original work of the Findhorn Community), humanity begins to identify as the World Disciple, assisting in creating the new rhythms, order, culture and civilization of the new Aquarian Age. Humanity and the devic (angelic) kingdoms are parallel evolutions. The devic kingdom is the feminine (receptive) aspect to humanity, the masculine (radiatory). When an event representing the feminine (Venus direct) occurs in the sky, something occurs here on Earth as well.

As scientists (Ray 5) released information that a new black hole (slowly rotating neutron star) in space was discovered, Venus (the feminine) emerged from behind the retrograde veils of Scorpio (mysteries, discipleship) and Libra (new values, spiritual structures).

Here on Earth, as Venus became the morning sky, as the black hole became apparent in the sky, in Burma (Myanmar), the charismatic and beloved leader of Burma’s opposition government, Aung San Suu Kyi (June 19, 1945, Venus in Taurus) was released from a 15 year house arrest. Earth always reflects the movement of the heavens. Venus (Ray 5), in the Aquarian (Ray 5) Age, is a dominant factor. Venus was the planet responsible for developing humanity’s individuality long ago. At present Venus makes us conscious that our next developmental step as a humanity is community and group life.

It was Findhorn’s (7th Ray community, Northern Scotland) 48th birthday last week (Nov. 17, 1962, Scorpio Sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune). Findhorn’s community is the template for the Aquarian new culture and civilization, the new sharing society where humanity and angelic kingdoms work together. Happy Birthday, Findhorn.


Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Nov. 25–Dec. 1, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
This sign, initiating new ideas, also forms deep habits. As children and students, partners and lovers they need encouragement to be patient, punctual and steadfast. Eventually they move from instinct to illumination to intuition, releasing all that is undisciplined. They must learn how to serve, a principle of liberation, which saves and uplifts the world. They must learn to love or their mission fails.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
This is the sign of illumination, their minds like searchlights, directing for everyone the Path to take. They can be focused researchers. To accomplish this they must fit themselves for service through exercise, sunlight, raw milk, adequate protein, and a balance of work and leisure, comfort and a life without undue discipline. They reach into the source of light projecting light outward into the darkness.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
They stimulate and vivify all life (kingdoms) they contact, acting as a transmitter of knowledge, dispersing information, letting in the radiance of reality. They seek to find their destined service, to act as a bridge between everything and everyone. They are the Antakarana (bridge), lifting all kingdoms into heaven, bringing heaven down to earth. Geminis are to plant nut trees. Geminis are the seed.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
It’s difficult to advise some signs. Cancer and Capricorn are two such signs. They are their own advisors. Cancers are very intelligent, instinctual and later intuitional. They need quietude, repose, tidiness and routine. Often their crabwalk circles these virtues. We need to assist them in accomplishing their tasks with equanimity and joy. Cancer can be fascinated with habits long after they are no longer useful.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
When not assuming power over others, the lion can be playful, masterly and self-assured. It’s important they see fair play and sportsmanship as more valuable than competitive winning. Leos have a strong heart and are generous because the Sun shines directly into their hearts. They can often overreach beyond safety and see themselves as immortal. They are and they aren’t. Only with love.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
These are the studiers of the zodiac, learning everything before embarking upon a game, plan or endeavor. They leave no stone unturned and this provides them with acute perception and an intelligence that harbors great depths of consciousness (unseen). Sometimes they are shy. Sometimes they are afraid of their intelligence. They turn away from dazzling.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Whatever they do Librans are nicely balanced, have a keen precision always adjusting to circumstances. Sometimes they shouldn’t. They weigh each move, sometimes are so impartial they cannot compete. This is good in the future sharing society Librans will help create with the New Group of World Servers. Libra is an extraordinary ally with splendid judgment, always focused on collaboration. Everyone wins.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
The most courageous, the most battle-worn and weary (along with Pisces), the most hard hitting, the most tenacious and persistent (like their shadow, Taurus), the most powerful (internally), the most defended (sometimes), the most feared (by those who don’t understand astrology), the most excessive, the most experienced in knowing the underbelly of society, the ones who most wear black and purple. They understand shadows.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
These secret foodies, also musicians, are game players. They don’t like to be defeated. They play long and hard. Ideals and goals form their long-term value system. They’re very sensitive, can lose in games to those who concentrate on repetition. Sag is the opposite of uninspired. Sag is restless, seeks freedom, is the magnificent archer on the white horse (car). His place is galloping (driving) over the plains. Oops, he’s gone.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
They work hard at everything. They’re dignified, prudent and very very serious, until their dry sense of humor erupts and everyone’s startled that they’ve veered away from their often solemn demeanor and constant tasks at hand. They are traditionalists and cannot overcome criticism or ridicule, which no one can overcome, actually. Their natural somberness needs to be met with lighthearted confidence.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Many are graceful and artistic, considering others’ difficulties through the lens of the future and the past. Aquarians are often misunderstood. As they stand within, thus representing the future, they are thought of as dreamers. They’re visionaries. No one sees the future as they do. They must not be hemmed in. Their eyesight is extraordinary, sighting objects no one else sees. They do not humiliate. They are praiseworthy.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
They win by retreating, never forcing the river, the pace, the play. In a Piscean lifetime there’s an attempt to perfect an ideal, a spiritual ambition and to gain loving regard. To achieve the ideal they concentrate their mind, emotions and body. Their senses predominate. That is their protection. They see potential.

Memories of life on tour, plus the truth about that legendary Santa Cruz Acid Test

 

I Build a Lighted House and Therein Dwell

Wednesday, June 24, Chiron turns stationary retrograde (we turn inward) at 21.33 degrees Pisces. We usually speak of “retrograde” when referring to Mercury. But all planets retrograde. Next month in July, Venus retrogrades. What is Chiron retrograde? Chiron represents the wound within all of us. Wounds have purpose. They sensitize us; make us aware of pain and suffering. Through our wounds we develop compassion. Through compassion we become whole (holy) again. Chiron helps develop these states of consciousness. Everyone carries a wound. Everyone carries family wounds (family astrology tracks the astrological “DNA” through generations). Chiron wounds are deep within. We’re often not aware of them until Chiron retrogrades. Then the wounds (through pain, hurt, sadness, suffering) become apparent. They seem to break us open emotionally, psychologically. Painful events from the past are remembered. They are brought to the present for healing. Through experiencing, talking about and deeply feeling what is hurting us, healing takes place. We begin to understand and bring healing to others. All week, Jupiter and Venus move closer together in the sky. They meet in Leo at the full moon, Cancer solar festival, on Wednesday, July 1. The Cancer keynote is, “I build a lighted house and therein dwell.” The soul’s light has finally penetrated the “womb” of matter. The New Group of World Servers is to radiate this light. At the end of each sign are keywords to use and remember during the Chiron retrograde.

Kickin' Chicken

Local kitchen alchemist Justin Williams is fast becoming a cult flavor master. His late-night wizardry, which began last fall delivering mainly to starving UCSC students, is catching on with taste buds beyond campus. Kickin’ Chicken delivers its spicy-sweet fried chicken and waffles to Westside residents between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. nightly. Or you can catch him and his brother and sister, Candice and Danny Mendoza, serving it up at their “Sunday Mass” at the Santa Cruz Food Lounge at 1001 Center St. in Santa Cruz. Using sous vide, a French method of cooking chicken in a water bath at a tightly controlled temperature, they then flash fry it for an amazingly crispy coat. Candice Mendoza spoke to GT about Kickin’ Chicken’s rise.

Pelican Ranch Winery

The most popular red wines found on store shelves are also those most commonly known, such as Pinot, Zinfandel and Merlot. But when you come across a more unusual varietal, like Pelican Ranch Winery’s Cinsault ($19), it opens up a whole new world. Cinsault is a grape that can tolerate heat, so it is found in countries with warmer climes such as Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon, and France. It’s rare in California but grows well in places like Lodi—Silvaspoons Vineyard in this particular case—where it’s hot and dry. Often used as a blending grape, the silky Cinsault is just fine on its own.
