United Nations Day

RisaSun and Mercury enter Scorpio this week. Scorpio is the sign of in-depth thinking, the Ancient Mysteries, of Persephone and Pluto and the underworld  – psychological and spiritual, hidden and sheltered. Scorpio is the “flaming  sword” protecting the Tree of Knowledge (of Desire), from which the serpent  plucked the apple offered to Eve (feminine mental plane). Scorpio is the  sign and color of pomegranates, the orange of persimmons and Halloween, the  latter informing us soon “something wicked our way comes. It’s the UN’s  birthday (Friday), Catholic feast days of Saints Jude and Simon (Wednesday)  and Saturday, in Santa Cruz, there’s a United Nations Association birthday  party/dinner honoring United Nations Day at United Methodist Church, 250 California St., 5:30 social, 6:30 dinner with music, silent auction and  Joseph Schultz catering. Guest speaker is Denise Scotto who has worked on  the Committee to Eliminate Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW – proceeds  support ratification). See unasantacruz.org .  See you at the dinner, everyone!    

The UNA, supported by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in 1953, attempts to  build understanding (which brings revelation) and support for the ideals and  work of the United Nations (Scorpio Sun & Mercury). Its educational and  humanitarian are teaches students in urban schools, clears minefields,  provides school-based support for children harmed by poverty, illness, and  war. UNA also has a Model UN, Global Classrooms and a Student Alliance,  which educate and inspire young people to engage in global issues and the  work of the UN through scholarship and critical thinking. See  sunausa.org/education . The UN, in its  reconstruction work, is a deeply Scorpio endeavor.    Next week Saturn (Ray 3, Divine Intelligence, economics), Dweller on the  Threshold, enters Libra (Ray 3). Relationships learn new lessons and news  emerges on the fate and destiny of the American dollar.   
ARIES: A shift is occurring, a threshold almost crossed, new realities, work  and responsibilities appear, new work. You emerge from your foundations and  face the Sun, hidden behind Scorpio waters. Although not a Scorpio you and  the sign of discipleship share the influence of Mars and Mercury. So you are  in the same family. Both have work to do that’s transformative. The key is  communication. Use it for goodwill, for knowledge, to dispense intelligence.  Use it to uplift.    

TAURUS: There seems to be no rest and each day provides new challenges.  Sometimes your back hurts, sometimes your head. Don’t let your heart hurt  even if things seem somewhat dismal and dreary – weather or finance-wise.  Help arrives in the form of unusual events especially as you continue your  intentions for assisting all aspects and endeavors of humanity. We work with  you in morning meditation.    

GEMINI: The energies impel you toward forceful giving of information, more  praise of others and identifying your creativity. It seems that you bridge  (the Antakarana, bridge between Spirit and matter, the building of which is  Gemini’s purpose) here and there in various multi-faceted ways, opening the  minds of others to see a new light, a new day, a new life ahead. Although  you may not understand how, you are blessed. We bless you.    

CANCER: How is the focus of money occurring in your life? Are you tending to  resources for yourself and/or others? It’s most important that you focus  time and energy upon your self needs so you can be strengthened in all ways  for the times to come. It may be your concerns have deepened for family and  children. This will continue until you focus shifts toward how and what you  create. Balance appears.    

LEO: It’s not your birthday but Mars is in Leo so it may as well be. Be  aware that inflammation may occur. Take Turmeric (curcumin) daily. You may  feel angry or aggressive. Garden. Identifying yourself through what you  create is an excellent endeavor for a new identity actually does emerge  through your creations. You may feel dramatic, exaggerated, and embellished,  desire a more glamorous and stylish approach while also hiding away. We’ll  still see you.    

VIRGO: Communication and all its levels and aspects are important for you to  understand at this time. Mercury rules communication and it’s transiting  your house of talk, thoughts, ideas. However, Mercury is in Scorpio meaning  one of the tests of Mercury is how and what one communicates and intentions  behind words. Observe these daily. Seek out true intentions. Use  communication for goodness to radiate outward.    

LIBRA: Some Libras are pondering marriage and some separation. For now  attempt to tie up all unresolved work situations. Tend to discrete money and  finance issues from long ago. Release relationships not good or kind  financially and work situations not respectful. A new world begins in the  weeks to come continuing to unfold the next two and a half years. Use words  that “give love a chance.”    

SCORPIO: For a while you become more hidden and complex. Others understand  you less and that’s good because you have important work to do, part of  which is a new self-identification. This happens yearly around Halloween.  You drop into the dark waters to renew yourself and emerge only when comfort  calls. Your communication for the next years becomes even more potent. Some  will understand this. Tell them you’re searching for Persephone.    

SAGITTARIUS: Communication is and will be the theme this month and next. For  you, communication along with your mind and thoughts has greatly expanded.  However, a wound has inserted itself between you and the spiritual world. It  will heal but will take time and tending. What is the present wound you’re  experiencing? Is it somewhat nebulous with uncertainty? That’s better than  piercing and sharp. Is travel calling again? Family will.    

CAPRICORN: Structure your money in careful ways in the coming month(s).  Purchase no non-essentials. Tend to debts immediately, paying more than  minimum on credit cards. Consider purchasing silver to back your dollars,  keeping your money safe. A good source for coins is the Money Changer  (the-moneychanger.com/ <http://the-moneychanger.com/> ). They are  intelligent, reliable, trustworthy and a source of invaluable monetary  information. The value of the dollar is changing.    

AQUARIUS: You may be seeking love, or if already in love, seeking a closer  connection. Remember that making contact, true and kind and good, releases  love. Can you make that type of contact? You’re also seeking new information  for more balance and the Right Relations your heart longs for. Have the  intention to love at all times. Use no harsh or critical words. Also have  the intention to understand. Aquarius often bypasses understanding.    

PISCES: There will be daily increased work and responsibilities. You’ll  summon your abilities to maintain health and strength in order to meet all  expectations. You also might need to catch up on medical tests and doctors’  visits put off since summer. Do you also need new shoes and a new bed? I  heard you need a new car. Relationships have been restrictive, money’s been  perplexing, and change has been ceaseless. Who listens to you?  Where is  your home?

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
