Goodwill on Earth, Peace To All

RisaNewSChristmas is Saturday, with a Virgo (let us not be critical, let us be grateful) moon (with matter, mother, the past). Let us, as an antidote, have the purposeful intentions for Gratitude, for Goodwill, which, through the establishment of Right Relations, brings Peace to the world ... which “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.” Christmas Day is a good day, with planets in trine which bring about harmony. There is actually a “depth” of Goodwill all around.

And so, we are now at the very end (the last week) of 2010. To honor with gratitude our lives lived out in time and space for the past year, let us review (it’s still Mercury retrograde in Sag) what our goals, hopes, wishes and dreams (personal, social, global, financial, spiritual, material, etc.) were.

At the end of the review (on the 31st), we can write our hopes, wishes, goals and needs for the coming year.  As we have few precious days left of 2010, let us participate in the 12 Days of Christmas, extending the Christmas spirit until Jan. 8, Three Kings Day. This ritual prepares us for the New Year as each day, Dec. 26 – Jan 6, is a foreshadowing of the coming 12 signs and 12 months of 2011.

Dec. 26 honors Aries (things new). Dec. 27 is Taurus (constancy). Dec. 28 Gemini (duality). December 29 Cancer (nurture)—continued next week. Let us remember what is important & what is not (Rascal Flats). Happy Christmas, everyone.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Dec 23–Dec 29, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You seek an intensity in all encounters, even with casual interactions. Anything superficial limits your need for closeness. You consider what this vulnerable state means for it is unusual. You do not want to feel betrayal. You want to feel your love nature, all consuming, devoted totally. And you seek this in return. You find beauty everywhere, especially with those in need. The spirit of the season is upon you.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Relationship is your life force. You can live, work and be alone. However, at this time harmony with another is more important. You seek, in ways great and small, balance and peace. There’s great responsibility and many tasks demanded with long term relationships. Most important is compromise in all things, creating a home and reality together. Relationships need to call upon a state of grace so love can be expressed. You do the “calling.”

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You want to be practical and helpful (not always but for now) in your relationship. You want to learn how to best serve those close to you, especially a partner. Not overly loving, you are however, thoughtful and available. In all ways you seek harmony and order, for you realize opportunity such as this is fleeting. Know that you can design a relationship filled with everything everyone needs. But first, be somewhat romantic.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
No matter your age, you exude a great magnetic attractivenness. The outcome could be a new relationships (or vivifying a present one). It could be everyone listens attentively to your ideas. You are more loving and in turn more loved and appreciated. A creative self-expression about to come forth. You know what is right, what is good, what is fair and what is just. You radiate good cheer. Or try to.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You may feel as if you simply cannot leave hearth, home, family, garden, or pets, even if it’s a goldfish (a Pisces influence). You think about the past, feel nostalgic, a bit sad, thinking of previous loves, of opportunities not taken, of places unvisited. This gives you the impetus to change your environment to reflect a new aesthetic of peaceableness, and stability. You sense what is most important and what is not. You sing. Try.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
It seems you want more friends, you want companionship and to be one in return. You want to know everyone in the neighborhood. You want them to speak with you and you with them. You want to know the names of the winter plants, flowers and birds. You need communication, no conflict, diplomacy, cheerfulness and wit. Begin your communication with the devas. The rest follows.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
During this time there’s a feeling of contentment, a sense that everything’s OK. Every now and then there’s restlessness, small thoughts that ask if you’re really happy and what makes happiness happen? Amidst the simple pleasures you’ve created, you want a sharing to occur—with friends, intimates, and most of all family (again, who is your family?). Love is stable. There is comfort. For a while.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Do you deny yourself? Do you step back from what you desire, aspire toward, love? If so, let this drop away for several weeks, attempt to place yourself at the center and reach out to what is comforting, restful, kind and caring. Allow yourself to loosen up a bit, letting some of your protective shields to drop. You will be safe. Dress up a bit. Think of yourself as a listener and one who has developed cooperation. A new thought.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Parts of you have migrated into a private place, a sort of hibernation, taking cover like a bear entering a cave for the winter. Other parts of you are out and about attempting to be merry. Simply know and allow this to be. Don’t think something is wrong. You’re learning how to bear (be aware of, work with) many realities at once. At times there’s a sense of longing, of shyness, a wistfulness. Things end. You sigh.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You remain in observing mode a bit longer. In the meantime, group activities are on the agenda and you think warm food and friendships, beautiful surroundings and shared thoughts. You think peace-loving friendships, lively conversations, a bit of intimacy, bubbly things to drink. And you wonder whether to participate or not. You think of sitting by the hearth at home, reading books, baking, family all around. You choose your heart’s desire.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You’re out in the world. Everyone sees you as attractive, charming, intelligent, responsible, in charge. People like you. You rub shoulders with those in power, in the know, positioned. Through social interactions you negotiate. It’s subtle. You’re affectionate as you see new opportunities arise. You’re successful because of your artistic talents. Heads turn as you walk by. Remember  what’s real and what’s not. Be real.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Expand beyond the routine. People worldwide, of different disciplines, education and backgrounds hear, listen to and understand you. It’s important to allow art, entertainment and the exotic into your life. You’re part of creating the new cultural revolution. Group work becomes exceedingly important as it stabilizes your talents and gifts. Maintain health with focused intent for you are to build, with others, the new culture and civilization. Acupuncture.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
