Chirotic Times

RisaNewSWe’re in chirotic times: times of chaos, crisis, catastrophe and calamity (earthquakes, tsunami, war in Libya, etc.) leading to a new world era. What is occurring, how do we understand it? Ray 1 is streaming into the world, in specific places (spiritual outlets). Ray 1 (Pluto/Vulcan), at first, destroys, liberating materialism and removing what obstructs the new creation. Ray 1 (Will of God, Purpose), later, builds the new realities, culture and civilization. For now we are in the first phase of destruction. On the inner planes, it is always “Love that underlies the happenings of the times.” Great sacrifice has love at the center.
We’re in Aries now: Pisces waters merged into Aries’ fires. During Aries we hear (appropriately) about clashes and wars (Mars), protests (Mercury) and revolutions (Uranus). Mars and Aries are fiery, anchoring the life force within matter (Rays 1 & 7). Fire expresses spirit. Liturgical News: We’re in Lent (40 days and nights of purification prior to Easter/Resurrection). Thursday is the Annunciation. Angel Gabriel announces to Mary she will be the Mother of the Savior. Mercury News: Mercury begins to retrograde (Aries, 24 degrees), Wednesday, till Holy Saturday (April 23, 12 Aries). We all know what to do (and not). Retrograde means review.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 24–Mar 30, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You review your appearance, how you’re seen in the world, seeking a new level of self-esteem and self-care. You assess use of power and will. Your mind is strong. In attempting to understand how to “lead humanity into the light,” you must first stand in that light, which pierces the darkness freeing the new ideas flowing forth. These ideas are impressed upon your mind. Observe this. Create a journal (record) of impressions.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
All around you will be signs of two fishes (Pisces). You begin to connect the mind with love. Actually love is pure reason. You distinguish between the lower mind and the Higher. One separates into bits and pieces of knowledge, always questioning; the other unifies that knowledge into Pallas Athena, intuition. By communicating with great Love, you are able to awaken awareness of Love within others. Many love you.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
If you ponder upon the symbol of Aquarius the water bearer, and the Aquarian keynote, “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity,” and if you study the Aquarian Laws of Principles you will begin to understand the unifying principles behind the work you are seeking to do – uniting first your heart and mind, then uniting groups with the new Aquarian ideas and ideals (one follows the other). In your heart you want to serve humanity. Your intuition is strong. You see patterns. You seek your group. It’s waiting.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Although it’s difficult, you seek to relate clearly and intelligently. A new level of creative intelligence will be coming forth. It’s different than before and initially not recognized by you. Look for this new creativity to come forth from you into the world. It will be a strand of the Mind of God seeking to anchor the new sharing principles of the New Age. You will be sensitive to the collective called humanity, the World Disciple. You will feed them.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You assess what it means to be a teacher as your Higher Mind overshadows your lower. You realize you must impart to others on the Path, the vision of your truth. You cannot be silent, continually hiding behind veils of protection. You are to take up bow and arrow and pierce the hearts of both the sleepers and the seekers. Teaching others becomes your loving service. Thus you “resurrect” everyone’s mind.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Pondering upon Ray 4, Harmony Created through Conflict, is an important study at this time. Perceiving reality through Ray 4, it describes your (and humanity’s) way of being. We learn through Ray 4. You will sense a great testing. They lead to the knowledge of a power to be used for either good or the not-good. You are also to raise desire toward aspiration. What is the difference in these two words?

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Let us consider the words Right Human Relations. These words begin with the intention for Goodwill and the result is the process of peace(fullness). These are Libra words, made just for you. They foster humanitarian vision, communication and unification. Libra links disparate realities, ideas that save the world. All Libras are being called to the Path of World Service. That path includes the transformative love of family, produced through forgiveness.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
You may begin to sense an affinity with the moon, the seashore, crabs and crabby things. Don’t be crabby yourself, though. You may begin to feel an affinity with mother and mothering, with nurturing of self and others. How do you nurture and what nurtures you? Very important questions. You discover you’re gestating new ideas concerning daily life, health, service. These ideas are to be shared with the “world of men.”

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Notice your creative powers are very strong, immediate and connected with your thoughts, which want to externalize immediately and intimately. Soon, you will assess where your rest, recreation, time with friends (true friends), children, play and simple pleasures are to be found? You will assess if any of this ever truly happens. And if not, you will set about creating them, reaching out, making contact. It’s all about Love.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Life’s on the edge now and protection of family is paramount. You’re attempting to balance everything into a state of harmony. Begin with yourself. Then you can communicate emotional security. Everything seems to be falling down—as it should. You/we are in a paradox. The old passing away, the new only in potential. You, however, holding strong, must see all three levels (past, present/future). You learn how to speak the Truth.


aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You sense that everything’s filled with possibilities. Life becomes a lively state of affairs, many streams of thought coming together, you front and center. You seek pure reason – mind and heart merging. Realizing this advances humanity you create experiences, writing, artwork with this in mind. Your speech and manners become graceful, refined, poised, charming, filled with the thoughts and intentions for Goodwill. 

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
There’s an idea in the Mind of God. You know it must be anchored on Earth. Previous attempts didn’t work. The time was not right. Earth wasn’t prepared. The present times of destruction are preparing the way for a greater beauty, a new education to emerge on Earth. You are to continue to bring forth the information so all minds can be illumined. Call upon the Forces of Enlightenment to assist.

The Binding of Edmund McMillen

How a Santa Cruz designer created one of the most unlikely hits in video game history

 

Sun in Leo, Rosy Star, Venus and Uranus Retrograde

Three major celestial events occur this week. Wednesday, the Sun enters Leo, highlighting the heart center of everyone. Leo is a sign of deep sensitivity (along with Cancer). Wednesday is also the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, one of the most misunderstood women in the Bible. Saturday, July 25, Venus turns stationary retrograde at 0 Virgo (progressed Regulus, the Law, Hall of Records). Venus retrogrades for 44 days and nights, forming one petal of a five-pointed rosy star (pentagram) in the sky (five retrogrades over eight years = star). Venus retrograde turns values upside down. Our usual sense of beauty, values, the real price of things, relationships—all turn into a bundle of confusion. We don’t seem to know anything. Luxury goods are mispriced, values are jumbled, we wonder who that person is we’re in relationship with. We don’t know where our money is or where it’s gone. Venus, in daily life, represents values (resources, money, possessions and quality of relationships). Venus retrograde asks, “What do I value?” Venus retrograde puts us in touch with what has changed and what is truly of value in our lives. Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo to 14 degrees Leo (July 25-Sept. 6). Leo is about the self and our creativity, which is how we come to know and value ourselves. We “know ourselves through what we create.” In Venus (values) retrograde (inner focus) we will ask, “What are values (not just money and finances)? What are my values? What do I create? How do I value my creations? Do I value myself?” Sunday, Uranus—planet of all things new, revelatory and revolutionary—also retrogrades (from 20 to 16 degrees Aries) until the full moon of Christmas Day. Five months of Uranus retrograde. In July and continuing on through the following months we have many planets retrograding. Things therefore slow down. Everyone’s focus becomes subjective, hidden by veils and curtains. A time when inner reserves of strength are available. A time of protection.
