Keeping the Door to Freedom

RisaNewSWe are seeing in our world today the “withering of the law,” the old ways falling away, having completed their usefulness. However, as this is occurring (allowing Ray 7, the new culture and civilization to form), great retrogressive forces are also at play (Ray 6, old regime of power, corruption, money and politics), attempting, with great cleverness and cunning, to hinder humanity’s forward movement into a new evolutionary field.

Each of us has a level of service to bring forth so the evolutionary movement can be accomplished. We have a “note” that “sounds” our highest values that bring about transformation. The Tibetan, in his blue books, tells us we must realize our identity as Divine, as World Servers and World Saviors.

 

We come from the heart of God. The Love from Sirius, streams through Regulus, the starry heart of Leo, into the heart of the Sun and into our hearts. This Will-to-Love is the substance of creative leadership calling us to awaken, step forward and assist in the creation of the new world. The Great Awakening, the Great Shift, the Great Turning have arrived.

As the darkness spreads through the attempted control of our freedoms, as our wealth is being extracted, the Light informs us that it is also here. Our references (beliefs) must shift now toward that Light. We must consciously step into a new thought-form, which demands freedom and liberation (Leo) for all (Aquarius). Let us therefore re-identify ourselves.

In Leo, seeking to recognize our talents and gifts, we discover reservoirs of courage, strength, love and willingness. Safeguarding our individual creative gifts, we turn and offer them to the group called humanity. Standing together in the pentagram in the Eastern Light, we radiate that Light and, having Right Orientation, we take control.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Aug 18–24, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Many things will be revealed to you concerning your goodness. Revelations about yourself will occur as you go about your daily work. You will notice your compassionate intentions, learning to serve others with care and dedication. You realize that care of self must come before adequately tending to others. Then you can uplift those in need and your spiritual self is uplifted. You’re climbing Jacob’s ladder

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Your mind, which seeks illumination (its spiritual task) has opened to new thoughts, ideas, terminology, spiritual science and arts, becoming a mediator within groups. You are continually questioning the cause of everything and you know when people are breaking rules. A study of astrology and the Ancient Mysteries was created to guide us. Contact everyone through the stars in the night sky.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You’re gradually becoming the star of the show. The presence you project to the world has become even more unusual. Whereas you were hidden and silent (well, sometimes), you’re now being vocal and your creativity is more apparent. You’ve realized it’s good to pursue pleasure, be gifted, and to be ahead of everyone else. It takes several planets and stars to get us to this place.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
You have the stamina and strength, courage and fortitude to run away someplace where you feel kindness and care. You’ve held off from something for so long it’s time to heed your deepest hopes and wishes. Be consciously aware that new values and priorities are forming within you. Later you will be called to teach these new values. The powerful people you meet reflect the power within you.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Usually you’re attempting to understand yourself in terms of your creativity and how to be recognized and praised more which helps you evolve and grow. In coming times you’ll seek beyond yourself into cosmic mysteries, perhaps the Diamond Sutras. Realizing much of how we live and what we’re attached to is transitory; you’ll establish yourself in ways quite different than the usual. You’re developing courage, the heart of the Lion.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Does it feel as if your finances and resources are at a standstill, or are too far away for you to realize them? What I suggest is an accounting and filing of all your monies in a folder or book. Perhaps you’re already organized in this way. Then the important question is one of values. In what way do you value yourself and others? Value of self brings forth personal, spiritual and financial freedom.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
The routines and schedules you thought important in relationships were the very things you walked out on. You knew that freedom to choose your own way was most important but for a long time you tried to compromise and accommodate. Now you’ll be able to exhibit the uniqueness of self, hidden away for so long. Tradition for you has its place if accompanied by beauty. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re in transformation.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
The next stage of your development is emerging. No longer can you be the quiet one. What must you begin to do? Looking at your chart, Uranus says you must seriously study the ancient wisdom teachings. They will deepen your already religious inclinations seeking formal structure. Somehow in your group of people these days you’re the leader. And so it’s important to communicate real information to those listening. The real information is the mysteries.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
New archetypes stream through your identity. All old patterns are being shaken up. Thought forms, beliefs, what you previously depended upon, are flying away from you, not looking back. Perhaps a few tears are shed. Then sadness emerges and grief. And after a time, new concepts of self are formed, a new direction is sensed. It’s a journey toward self-awareness.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
All relationships in times to come will allow you the recognition you seek. You
experience life differently than others. Sometimes your presence brings rebellion to interactions, creates controversy and agitates if events are too slow and dry. And if you don’t, then in sails someone who will do these things for you. How interesting! The disharmony is the needed chaos that brings forth a new harmony. It is a service.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Your mind is experiencing original insights, thoughts flashing at the speed of light, and ideas that only Aquarians understand. Your sense of humor has expanded too. With these gifts, you may introduce new ethics, concepts, educational ideas, and information to the world beginning in your personal world. Be aware that it’s risky to do this. It’s also a service.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You realize you’re different than most. Although you attempt to walk the straight line of tradition, it simply doesn’t work. You’re greatly talented though others may not recognize this. You are unpredictable and curious, having the ability for leadership. (Pluto as Soul ruler.) So much change has occurred the past five years, you feel disorganized and deconstructed. Yes, it’s a preparation for what’s to come.

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.
