Serving & Saving the World—Invoking the Ancient Law of Dominating Good

RisaNewSFriday morning, just after midnight the moon is full (the Full Snow moon). It’s the Chinese Lantern Festival and the solar festival of Aquarius, 29:20 degrees l. Aquarius is the sign of serving the world. Friday, following the full moon, Sun enters Pisces, calling us to save the world. Note the different tasks – serving in Aquarius, saving in Pisces. The meditative seed thought for Pisces full moon is “I leave the Father’s house, and, turning back, I save.”
The planets are active this week, shifting, separating, clashing, creating synthesis and awareness for humanity. Friday Venus helps humanity create economic justice in the world. Saturday Sun joins Chiron in Pisces. We recognize and learn how to heal the wounds of the world. Sunday evening we may feel quite confused (Mars/Neptune) and sleepy.
Monday is President’s Day (Washington of cherries and Lincoln of truth-telling). By Tuesday (my birthday), there’s a lineup of planets in Pisces—Sun, Mercury, Mars and Chiron (in Pisces for the next 8 years). With planets in Aquarius and Pisces, humanity invokes the Ancient Law of Dominating Good. The people’s revolution continues. For Risa’s March 14-18 class information nightlightnews.com—learning More.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Feb 17–Feb 23, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Busy as you are with professional shifts, changes, rebalancings, turn a bit more toward friends and the future, where the true reality is. If you set goals with friends they will be successful and stabilizing. Don’t demand too much from others. It creates failure. You’re in a time of great creative potential. Why do I see greenhouses and natural pools when I enter your world?

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
The past weeks have been unusual for you, more like an internal retreat, inner solitude, where something very important was taking place. Now you consider goals, seeing to their manifestation. This is “white magic.” Magic is the ancient word for bringing a thought-form into the world, having it appear in matter. This takes the calling forth of Ray 3, the Holy Spirit to overshadow you. This is esoteric.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You become more and more practical with resources because you know a change is coming in the form of education that radically reorients your beliefs. That is, if you have the courage to step into a new reality, enter into a group of like-minded others, plan your travels ahead of time and know the rest of your world will be cared for. You have a bit more time to prepare. Education in the new age calls.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
It’s tax time, yes? Sometimes that creates an anxiety within you. This year with Neptune, Mars and Sun all together in Aquarius, then Pisces, it’s even more confusing. Everything’s simply too complex for words. Like Pisces you may feel you’re on uncharted waters, in a boat with no captain, no shore in sight, and there’s rumors that pirates are all around. Life feels like that now. Can you rest a bit?

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You’re sensitive, more than usual this week. Here you are in your reality and it seems everyone and everything, over there somewhere, opposes you. What this means is an integration of things & thoughts, new and unusual, is occurring. You will integrate new realities. One may be the fact that creating more companionship and alliances would assist you. Assist your heart, actually. Is your home cozy? Is it warm?

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Oh, dear, there always seems to be so much to accomplish, so many people to contact, so many ideas to jot down & create goals with. It’s good Virgo’s work ethic is developed into a sense of responsibility based upon intelligence. Creativity is to be practical & purposeful this month. You remember something. It makes you sad, glad, wondering, concerned. But not discouraged.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
You want to play a little more than usual. Sometimes some Librans are very serious, they don’t play much, feeling injustice in the world, seeking to alleviate it. You do this. However, now’s the time for a bit of lightness, for friends, entertaining, communicating with loved ones, with children. In the coming weeks tend carefully to health. See doctors, dentist, therapist, care providers. Get new shoes. A new job may call.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Tend to family with extra care, touching base, making contact with all the family, even those not often seen. There’s a pull between home and work, family and the world, internal and external realities. Try to meet personal needs first. Stay at home a bit. Let yourself lose touch with outer realities. This gives you time to consider a different course of action in relationships and concerning work. The two merge. What needs tending?

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
New thoughts and/or ideas, very new, very future, should have been streaming through your mind, creating what it felt like to be Tesla. People can sense you’ve become a bit different. Did you know Tesla’s closest companion was a dove? They communicated daily, which you must do a bit more, with heart, to those around you. Focus on them, not yourself. Soon a strange new spirit of adventure arrives. Where will you go? What/who will call?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
All Caps’ identities continue to shift, change and be transformed. You have become fluid earth. The planet Venus, Earth’s alter ego, is in your sign, creating a great magnetic (spiritually attractive) field around you. People respond to you differently than before. They see something— a light perhaps, a sense of focus, an ability to bring beauty into the world. Stay close to loved ones this week.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Happy birthday. When our birthday month arrives, the sun shines through us. We are beautiful. Our angels stand around, close to us, waiting to hear our fleeting thoughts concerning what we need and want in our coming new year. A birthday only really occurs when we make contact with our angels. Have you done this? You have time. Your angels are still close by, waiting, listening, patient as ever. Their gift to you is protection this coming year.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Do you sense you’ve entered a point of silence, a monastery, a place behind the scenes without an exit door? Do you need contact, interactions? There are very few to none each day. It’s a time of deep reflectivity, study, learning and serving another with care and intimacy. Chiron has entered your sign. You will be sensitive to wounds, to healings, to all things Chironic for the next eight years. You become Chiron.

Happy Birthday Risa, have a spirit-filled year and much success. I add the following, which I thought was so poignant for these times --

We are All Being Called to Tahrir Square

"In another inspiring commentary on Egypt, David Spangler writes of an understanding shared with him by a Presence who he thought of as an 'Angel of Humanity'. The Presence suggested: What is happening here is part of a process that goes beyond Egypt and its concerns. It is a human occurrence. It is one expression, conditioned by the circumstances of the Middle East, of an unfoldment that all humanity is experiencing, not just Egyptians or Arabs. This is the most important thing to know. David Spangler, reflecting on this, notes: We can realize that we are all facing and struggling with a need to change and go beyond our current ways of treating each other and our world if we are all going to have a livable future, much less realize the fullness of our human potential. In this sense he suggests that we are all called to revolution: It is the oppression of [an] inner tyranny of ancient and outworn thoughts, emotions, habits, and beliefs that all of us, all of humanity, is now struggling against, like a butterfly trying to break out of a cocoon. We are all being called to make our way to the Tahrir Square of our minds and hearts, there to stand together and demand the old ways step down so a new humanity may emerge."

We Can Rebuild You

A look back at how downtown Santa Cruz recovered from the 1989 earthquake

 

International Earth Day—Mother Earth Day

Every April 22, humanity celebrates International Mother Earth Day and Earth Day. As more than a billion people participate in Earth Day activities every year, Earth Day has become the world’s largest civic observance. The massive concern to build right relations between humanity and the living being we call Earth is evidence of humanity’s love of the Mother. In 2009, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed April 22 International Mother Earth Day, with a significant resolution affirming “the interdependence existing among human beings, other living species (the kingdoms—mineral, plant, animal and human) and the planet itself, the Earth which we all inhabit.” The Earth is our home. Celebrating Earth Day helps us define new emerging processes (economic, social, political) focused on the well-being of the kingdoms. Through these, humanity seeks to raise the quality of life, foster equality and begin to establish right relations with the Earth. We dedicate ourselves to bringing forth balance and a relationship of harmony with all of nature. Learn about planting a billion trees (the Canopy Project); participate in 1.5 billion acts of green. Disassociation (toward Earth) is no longer viable. We lose our connection to life itself. Participation is viable—an anchor, refuge and service for all of life on Earth. Visit earthday.org; harmonywithnatureun.org; and un.org/en/events/motherearthday for more information. From Farmers Almanac, “On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic of fresh air, contact with the soil, companionship with nature! Go barefooted. Walk through woods, find wildflowers and green moss. Remain outside, no matter the weather!” Nature, Earth’s most balanced kingdom, heals us. The New Group of World Servers is preparing for the May 3 Wesak Buddha Taurus solar festival. We prepare through asking for and offering forgiveness. Forgiveness purifies and like nature, heals.

If you could live in Santa Cruz in any era besides now, which would you choose?

Probably the ’70s, because Santa Cruz is such a fly-your-freak-flag place. That was when free love and hippiness was in vogue. Shane Reber, Santa Cruz, Caretaker
