Economic Intelligence, the Holy Spirit & Liberation

 

RisaNewS

As of this writing severe weather (heat, sink holes, flash floods, droughts, etc) is occurring in many places around the country while our U.S. government is deadlocked about the state (debts, taxes, etc.) of our economy (Ray 3). During Cancer’s full moon meditation Thursday night, those participating in the Kalachakra Initiation and full moon meditation in Washington DC saw the president’s helicopter take off and fly over the city. He flew into the Light of the Cancer full moon. We hope this gave him the strength and courage to decide what is for the greatest good. We call forth the Law of Ancient Dominating Good and the Forces of Light to flow into and influence the U.S. government.
The financial disarray (achieving a harmony through Conflict, Ray 4) is not surprising. Saturn in Libra (both Ray 3 of Economic Intelligence) is squaring the U.S. Sun in Cancer in the second house of finances and values. Squares challenge us into a new direction. Saturn, Dweller on the Threshold, highlights obstacles to intelligent success. Saturn, exalted in Libra, calls for balance. Opportunity is given if we make responsible decisions.

Through this economic crisis, our leaders are given the opportunity to choose – what is best for the few or for the many. Choosing the latter, humanity is liberated. Ray 3 is Liberation. We call forth the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, Intelligent Spirit of Liberation) to oversee this crisis of opportunity. As the Sun enters Leo Friday night, the Right Use of Will (through love) overshadows our leaders.

Esoteric Astrology as news for the week of July 21–27, 2011 for Sun and Rising signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Last week’s full moon created a challenge between home and profession, bringing that duality to light so you could unify and synthesize values. For many uniting these areas of life can be difficult, being pulled in two different directions. However, this doesn’t need to be. Things visualized and planned for eventually emerge into a unifying light. It’s a splendid harvest. Lead with love, or leadership fails.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You’re emerging as a teacher. It's said during Cancer/Capricorn full moon the teacher is to be recognized and gratitude is to be given. The Dalai Lama said we were to rejoice in the Teacher (and the teachings). What teachers blessed you with goodness and knowledge?  Thank them in your mind and heart. You’re to become even greater. Students are to surpass the teacher—one of the student’s spiritual tasks.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You’re to be sensitive to impressions from greater realms so you can understand more the ancient mysteries embedded in these astrological and esoteric writings. What concerned you prior to the Cancer full moon is forgotten. Venus, your Soul ruler, asks you to list again what you value (possessions, events, people, ideas, behaviors, books, facts, etc.). Seeing what you value allows a greater self-identity.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
To recognize what’s important to us, we often must observe our daily routines. What are you doing that’s routine this week and month and how does that define you? What beliefs about yourself decide for you what you accomplish each day? Do you provide yourself with the same nurturance, safety and security you provide others? Assess your answers. Careful with communication. You may not be able to hear yourself.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Happy Birthday, Leo. Allow yourself time away from work and responsibilities; study that increases your imagination, art that creates free play (which you need). These soothe, create comfort and care that often you seek from others (which they are unable to provide). Work soon becomes quite intense. Prepare yourself with disciplined daily time structures so you don’t become weary. Are you thinking about your father?

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
So much happens within and so much about you is creative. Perhaps you don’t quite recognize this and don’t yet rejoice in it. Virgo’s ability to organize and tend to things in detail are fine creative acts. Virgos have great discernment. Something new will be emerging in your home as you tend carefully to the art of money management.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
As you continue to change and merge into a new self identity, as your home life transforms (perhaps into greater beauty, order, organization?) the structure of your mind, beliefs, thinking will change, too. Notice these things. Previous obstacles in daily life melt away. Whatever you justify doing, if kindness is not involved, this too will dissolve. Who loves you the most? Someone.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
There’s an ongoing question concerning having enough resources, now and for the future. This causes anxiety. It’s good to communicate about these things. Communicating expands awareness and calms reactions to what seems like continual change. Soon you feel the need for travel. Plan for this now. It calls you to adventure. In the meantime paring down all expenses allows for unusual reserves of creativity to emerge.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Follow the paring down advice given to Scorpio. This is an important time when you think deeply on how you would want to improve or expand upon any (all) aspects of how you are in relationships. At times you’re very dedicated, often enthusiastic. At other times you drop to a middling to poor state of being. From heights of achievement and authority to lack of confidence. These are normal behaviors for everyone.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Careful driving, communicating and doing things that demand a focused mind. You’re entering a time when the mind and thinking are being refined. At first veils seem to drop over your eyes. Then thinking feels confused. These are symptoms of mental enhancement. While this occurs, you need to care for your health with a consistent regimen of vitamins and minerals and a diet gluten—and sugar—free. Include the entire family.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
The cultural calls out the best in you, captures your creative spirit, provides new confidence and realization that you are an artist. All that you do brings forth for others new and different perspectives. Many of us don’t realize or understand our gifts and how we influence others following our dreams and visions, wants and wishes. On a practical level, begin and continue to be very disciplined with money, resources and finances.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Home is the best place to concentrate on preparing the correct foods your body needs to heal, have comfort and accomplish the daily tasks of nurturance and protection. With Neptune in Pisces, your nervous system needs a specific and defined enclosure. If sounds affect (bother) you take extra magnesium, calcium and Aconite (homeopath). Pisces need the deepest care of all the signs. You may be going home again.

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.
