Festival of Humanity & World Invocation Day

RisaNewSThe Gemini Solar Festival of Goodwill & World Invocation Day occurs Wednesday at 1:14 p.m. (PST) at 24 degrees Gemini. The full moon this year is accompanies by a total lunar eclipse, signifying something in form disappears. The Gemini festival is the time in which the Christ, Hierarchy and New Group of World Servers, distribute to humanity the Shamballa force (Wesak blessing from our God, Sanat Kumara)—the Will-to-Good, which becomes Goodwill when humanity receives and absorbs it. The blessing, released by the Buddha, has been held in trust and safe guarded by the Christ for the entire month since the last full moon. Gemini (which gathers and disperses energies) is the 3rd Spring full moon festival. At each of the festivals (Aries, Taurus, Gemini) great forces—that of Restoration (Aries), Enlightenment (Taurus) and Reconstruction (Gemini) – are released to the Earth and humanity for the purpose of accelerating evolution.

As we call upon (invoke) the Forces of Reconstruction they sweep through the world, producing in humanity (interiorly seeking God’s Will) a dedication and aspiration to express Right Human Relations. The Gemini festival invokes world fellowship, human and spiritual unity, and represents the Work of both Buddha and Christ (brothers).

Since 1952 (intuition-in-service.org/Vigil.cfm), humanity worldwide has celebrated World Invocation Day, a global day of prayer and meditation, when people of different spiritual paths invoke together the energies of Light, Love and Spiritual Purpose, using the Great Invocation. The NGWS invites everyone to join in by reciting the Great Invocation. Ohm

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jun 9–15, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Notice your many and varied goals this year, climbing the ladder to reach those goals. Notice also that a new authority, one finer tuned, responsible, and aware of the importance to serve others, has appeared within your life. These are great accomplishments, founded on great challenges. They are the qualities of the Soul. You have done well. Keep climbing.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Your true self is a leader and teacher everyone seeks in these times of unpredictable changed and relationship instabilities. Is a heath crisis deterring you from daily work? Do you barely have time for other pursuits? Continue research and contact with others also concerned for humanity’s future. Expand your garden. Where’s the green house? Humanity’s coming.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Illuminate the praise and recognition everyone in your life needs by articulating these ceaselessly. You are blessed with creative gifts manifested as outer abilities. A new identity is taking shape. It’s a deeper Soul identity. One gift of the Soul is recognizing the spiritual purpose behind all relationships. Can you see these? Or are you caught in a difficult duality of purpose? A Gemini test.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
You may feel your work at times takes you away from family. And then, in turn, family feels like it takes you away from your (spiritual) work. Your task and lesson are to balance the two. The more difficult, the greater the Initiation. Do you have visions and dreams for a different future? We are to envision and (day) dream more. In between health crises and responsibilities glimmers of dreams may occur. Watch for them.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Your work life may take on dimensions that could overwhelm. So much to do, so many thoughts in your mind, yet many hidden behind a veil. You feel great emotions trying to express yourself, finding communication difficult creating a touch of sadness. Someone(s) needs communication. Relationships could feel brilliant yet hidden, like art objects yet to be found. Someone thinks of you daily.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
A profound creativity is building. Some Virgos will become pregnant with new physical life. Some will gestate a new level of artistry and creativity. You’re being impressed from all levels, high and low, to bring beauty forth. In your life recognize the life force within all kingdoms by expressing clear unconditional love. Study the Bach flower remedies.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
As thoughts from the past reappear, your response to them determines your present/future. If you have sad thoughts, take Ignatia Amara (homeopath). If they are thoughts that urge forgiveness, contact and care of another, begin immediately. Distorted remembrances and beliefs hinder the creative aspect of yourself. Develop the intention to radiate goodness and Goodwill so you can love more. Forgiveness follows.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Communication expands within you, becoming full and rich. Though it’s internal, you realize the need to communicate thoughts to others who can listen carefully, ask appropriate questions, and maintain silence when needed. Seek these people. Let others see your strengths and your need for security. Don’t keep secrets. Share a bit more. It’s safe.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Yes, a change is preparing itself for you. However, it has its own sense of timing and this can lead to impatience. A new world stage is being prepared. Your sign creates publishers, world travelers, foodies, writers, philosophers allowing no one to overshadow them. Maintain the present direction. Doors (of perception) open by themselves. The grass, too, grows by itself. Rajneesh, a great Sag teacher, wrote that.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Spiritual forces, ever-directing, inform you to rest from climbing that ever-present ladder reaching into the heavens of success. You need to unwind from your extraordinary capable sense of responsibility. Observing your actions from afar we award your far-reaching standards applied to all endeavors of life. Now you must relax and rejuvenate before your next tasks appear. And they will.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
All realities in life begin by imagining hopes, wishes, dreams. Inner life is shaped by these until one day dreams manifest into form and matter. Attempt to clarify what’s important, of value and what you must next pursue. Sometimes this is difficult. Some of us live only in the moment. But within each moment is a vision of the future. Try to capture it.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You had future plans. However, they change daily. Create collaboration with another. It will take you far into the future where the world will not look as it does now. You understand the changes occurring on our planet. You seek to serve and not exact due service, to heal, not hurt, others. At times you are hurting. This is so compassion deepens—your particular task. The future isn’t formed yet. It must be imagined by all of us. Teach this.

Venus Direct, Mercury Retro Soon, Honoring Our Labors

As Burning Man (nine days, Aug. 30-Sept. 7 in the sign of Virgo) burns in the hot white desert sands, a petal of the rose created by retrograde Venus and the twelve-petaled Sun in Virgo’s petals unfold. All of us are on the burning ground (Leo) in the womb (cave of the heart) of the mother (Virgo), gestating for humanity once again (each year) a new state of consciousness. Both Virgo and Cancer, feminine (receptive energies) signs, are from our last solar system (Pleiades). When humanity first appeared on Earth we were nurtured by the mother, a matriarchy of energies (on islands in the Pacific). Eve, Isis and Mary are part of the lineages of our ancient Mother. Overseen by the Pleiades, the Earth (matter, mater, the mother) in that last solar system was imbued with intelligence (Ray 3). As we move toward autumn, another mother, Ceres realizes she has mere weeks left with her beloved daughter, Persephone. Persimmon and pomegranate trees prepare for autumn, their colors signs of hope as the light each day continues to dim. Sunday, Venus in Leo turns stationary direct, yet continues in her shadow until Oct. 9 (when retrograde Mercury turns direct). Slowly our newly assessed values emerge from the Venus retrograde. We thought in Venus retro how to use our resources more effectively. Mercury retrogrades Sept. 17. Monday is Labor Day. Let us honor the labor of everyone, all life a “labor.” Let us honor Labor Day and all those who have “served” (labored for) us this past year. We honor their labors. We honor the labor of our parents, those who have loved us. We honor our own labors, too. We are all in service, we are all laboring. We are all valuable.

Do you overshare online?

I don’t think so. I just post things about my life, like successful things. Sometimes I just like sharing different news that I find interesting, or favorite artists, clothes, music. I like to post photos. Natalia Delgado, Santa Cruz, Server

I recently met up with three friends for dinner at Sanderlings at Seascape Beach Resort. We chose to eat outside so we could watch the sun set over the ocean, but the Aptos fog rolled in and swallowed it up.
