Living in the House We all Build week of July 5

RisaRetrograde Jupiter conjuncts (joins) Neptune again this week in Aquarius. We actually have a triple conjunction (Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron), occurring three times along with three eclipses. Three means Ray 3—Divine Intelligence influencing our personal and world affairs. Jupiter/Neptune stimulates imagination, provides inspiration and activates the light of consciousness within humanity. We can also experience illusions and distortion.

When planetary energies reach humanity, how they affect us depends completely upon our level of consciousness. Further effects of Jupiter (Ray 2, Love/Wisdom) and Neptune (Ray 6, faith, hope, vision) as written by the Tibetan is that the veils of illusion and distortion are “rent” (torn), meaning the illusions, keeping us within the fields of unreality, are destroyed. Having our illusions (which create our beliefs) shattered can be very difficult for humanity. The challenge will be to maintain faith (Neptune) and optimism (Jupiter) understanding the destruction we are experiencing, especially in the economic sector, will release, liberate and expand us. When we are able to understanding the purpose behind destroying what is obstructing us (illusions, distortions) and simultaneously maintain hope, faith and joy, then revelations occur helping us build the new culture and civilization. There’s an Earth Share ad (earthsharel.org) that perfectly expresses the times we are in. It reads: “We live in the house we all build.” This not only reminds us we are in (sign) Cancer and that our country is Cancer Sun (home, nurturance) but that the future (Ray 7) must be created by all of us. We are humanity, the masses becoming the creative world disciple. (more at www.nightlightnews.com)
ARIES (March 21-April 20) The eclipse focuses upon home, mother(ing), nurturance, how you want and need to live. Is comfort and security found in your home? How are your family relationships and is there a feeling that you must move, redecorate, restructure or redesign? Dynamics with parents and family, a definite lifestyle change, all are assessed in order to meet emotional needs. It’s a good idea to design and build a gate.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21) Something changes in communication within self and with others. There’s much to be learned about listening and the timing of speaking and not speaking. As you learn, you will then teach by sharing what you’re reading and researching. All that you do creates knowledge about our immediate future. Your personal environments and neighborhood calls. You’re to bring about changes while asking others to help.
GEMINI (May 22-June 20) Financial stability is on your mind. In our financially unstable times, we must understand the undercurrents (reality) of our present and future economic situation. Have you read Naomi Klein’s “Shock Doctrine” yet? Do you read Catherine Austin Fitts’ (solari.com/blog) site daily? Both will bring you up to date, take you well into the future of our current difficult times and endow you with the knowledge and psychological security needed.
CANCER (June 21-July 20) There will be a great focus on self-development, self-recognition, self-esteem and self as one who is strong and reliable. There also may be an identity crisis as the old self falls away and new personal potentials unseen until now appear. Gradually self-knowledge, a new state of self-confidence leads to an enriched ways of seeing yourself. Your horizons expand and all that hinders disappears. Everyone will recognize this change.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 22) There has been much grief within you. In coming months you’ll be spiritually impressed with the fact that you are interdependent and that growing into a more joyful person is in direct relation to reaching out and making real contact with others. Keeping yourself away from others doesn’t allow your rich reservoir of talents to be expressed. Humanity needs you. Rest awhile for now. Know that emerging into the light is inevitable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It would be good to study history, different societies and actually the entire human race’s progression through the centuries. When we grasp this then humanity as a group becomes more interesting and significant. Then we realize we are part of humanity, too and then our sense of self-worth is renewed, anchored, established and then humanitarianism emerges and true service becomes a common daily experience. You are no longer a Leo.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You sometimes have great pressure concerning career advancement, making money, public recognition. This creates a determination to advance, step by step no matter the obstacles, up the ladder of success, breaking any glass ceilings along the way. You also look for evidence of success through outer material resources. This is good only to a point. In coming months circumstances will lead to different realities. Whatever you do, know that your service is seen, recognized and appreciated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Deeper and deeper you delve into abstract thoughts, intangible to most. You think about morals and ethics, religious practices, philosophical issues. You’re seeking a new foundation and structure in life. Deep study will lead you toward a great cultural expansion. Travel will too. You pursue the wisdom of the ages, the truth of all things to come. Pack your bags, include your books, open them and find a way to travel the seas.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) What are your thoughts on sharing of all things physical, material, emotional, intellectual? Perhaps sharing makes you feel possessive or psychologically unprotected. Perhaps you’ve never thought of true sharing till now. For our spiritual development, we must begin to share all that we have until one day we actually give all of ourselves away. Doing this depends upon our level of spiritual development. Many of us are not here yet. But you could be.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20) There continues to be a pull between work and home, self and others, public/professional and the personal. If one is emphasized then a sense of incompleteness occurs. This is difficult, as if you’re on a cross – up and down, side by side. Actually you are. It’s the fixed cross and you’re being asked by the Soul to offer yourself equally to all four areas of life. Have the intention, one by one, to solidify and bring harmony first to your intimates, then to self, then to home, then to your profession. In this order. Then it occurs.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) There is a need to focus on your health and nutrition. It provides the basis for success in daily life. It’s essential that you reduce all things that lead to overwork and/or underwork. This includes psychological worries. Having the intention to cooperate with others creates deep and lasting psychological health. You have entered a time of great creative output and recognition by others (which you deserve). New awarenesses appear in the months to come. You will be surprised.
PISCES (Feb.19-March 20) You are being subtly urged to express affection in greater amounts. It brings joy to you; something deeply needed to strengthen your life force. Expressing true affection also develops balance and cultivates self-esteem. Often Pisces is ignored or not seen. A greater balance between things spiritual and physical is essential for Pisces to feel happy and enjoy life. We become what we give. Notice those around you who love more. Imitate them.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
