Revolution, All Things New

RisaNewSRisa’s class in the Heart of the Dove. There are still openings in our class March 14-18. Consider joining us, everyone. The most significant news among astrologers is Uranus entering Aries, Friday, March 11, 4:49 p.m. (West Coast). Uranus is revolution, freedom, liberation, new archetypes (patterns), new rhythms. Uranus rules (oversees) the Aquarian Age (and technology). Aries initiates “all things new.” Aries is the first sign, the new life emerging. Aries is impatient, action oriented, cardinal, fire, the spirit of life entering the template of form and matter. Together they build and create the new Aquarian culture and civilization. What cannot be part of the new era will begin to vanish. Aries is the first sign, the new life emerging. Uranus and Aries together is the new education for the Aquarian Age.
Uranus transcends limitations, disrupts, suddenly shifts perspectives. Uranus is a lightning bolt, the fire of heaven (which Prometheus captured). It generates deep insight, imagination, intuition, electrical currents (the “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity”). Uranus envisions the future, is scientific. It challenges, creates rebellion and the needed revolution that banishes the old and brings forth the new. As Uranus distributes Aries for the next seven years, a new state of creativity, perceptions, the new world religion, a new story appears on Earth. It will be a “brave new world,” one that the trinity (humanity, the New Group of World Servers, and the Devas/angelic builders) must create together. We will need courage, cooperation and community to withstand the new electrical rhythm, the “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity.” We will build this “brave new world.” Uranus, Aries and Aquarius will show us the Way.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 10–16, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Wow! You’re (Aries, the sign) the target, repository, fiery field, recipient, beneficiary, receiving instructions directly from God (Uranus) that everything must change. You’re initiator, designer, architect, inventor, leading the other eleven signs in building cooperation. This is an interesting task since cooperation isn’t your specialty. However, since you’re the leader, you will learn. Call upon Uranus for help. Keywords: monumental change.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
So much is being released from your body, emotions, mind. Perhaps you’re having headaches. There’s a new path to be walked upon. The previous one is fast disappearing. All that you’ve done up to this time is preparatory. A deeper spiritual reality appears through dreams, study, contemplation. A new journey to new lands, too. This will take time. You will be changed profoundly.  Keynote: Saving the world.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Let’s see, what shall I say this week, always the same theme? You are to meet new people, enter a new group and social network. These people are unusual. They meet your needs for spiritual depth, esoteric and astrology study. A place has been prepared for you. All that you have known now feels limiting, dull, stodgy (an old word), uninspiring, without humor, tedious. Yes? What do you need to come forth? Keywords: Esoteric Group.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
In the coming years, beginning now, new gifts, talents, abilities and achievements begin to appear, slowly at first, and then pouring in like a summer rainfall. You discover yourself, feel freedom for the first time, seek freedom for others because now you understand what it was like not to be free – from emotional obstacles, beliefs, thought-forms you thought were real. All that is old disappears. You stand “revealed.” Keyword: Talents.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Many and various events cross your path creating adventures, new goals, and a new spiritual and/or religious state. You may travel far and wide, consider dual citizenship, study alien life forms. Everything foreign (different) and cultural becomes your focus. Study unexpectedly begins, ends, shifts dimensions. Are you to found a college, a publishing house, an animal sanctuary. Keywords: Perception radicalizes.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Pay close attention in the coming years. Everything concerning money, resources, inheritances, wills, taxes alters. You will learn many things, enter new territories, new dimensions. You will learn how to value, safeguard and cherish what you have. You will transform, rise up like a phoenix, soar like an eagle, who mates for life. So much uncertainty at first, later leads to new and greater intimacy. Keyword: Experimentation.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
An interesting new energy will enter your relationships. You will learn to identify and be at ease with these changes. You will realize difference creates change and change allows everything to thrive. You will cultivate change in your relationships by introducing new, exciting ideas and ways of living differently. You will initiate the idea that all minds are created equal. This in itself is revolutionary. Keyword: Cultivation, as in a garden.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
You will realize that all relationships must have, at their center, freedom and equality. You will not tolerate anything that creates a hierarchy of power over or dominance in any part of your life. In your workday world, you will become free of restrictions, Daily routines unravel, your diet and exercise change to meet your body’s new health needs. Locations, work, all change. Nothing stays the same. Keyword: Finally!

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
What changes? Creative self-expression, what you consider fun, spontaneity. You become the shining example of all things new. Many will embrace your emerging true self. Others will be disturbed. As you become more out-of-the-ordinary, your creativity increases. There could be unexpected love affairs (they come and go), a pregnancy (real or metaphor), a risk-taking windfall. You’ll feel you “have it all.” Keyword: Uninhibited.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Your domestic situation and/or routines will change. You may move to a new location, completely redo or rearrange the layout of your home. Someone may come to live with you or move out. Be sure that communication is kept open and sharing occurs regularly. You will be the only one who can initiate this. As foundations change, the family changes. Keywords: Contact (communication) releases Love.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
What was written for Aries, applies also to you, but in a different context. You are responsible for the distribution of ideas that become ideas within the minds and hearts of humanity. You are responsible for exposing the new concepts that create the new era through writing, publishing and the art of conversation. Make the "contacts that release the love that underlies all happenings.”Keywords: Conscious Intention.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Your values and sense of self-worth, resources, assets, finances and possessions shift unexpectedly, fluctuate radically until they reach a balance and equilibrium. Your skills increase, your wounds will heal, recognition occurs, and brilliance from the Raincloud of Knowable Things becomes available. The magnetic center is revealed. The rollercoaster stops. Keywords: “Build it (in the mansion and on the internet). They will come.”

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
