Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take?

RisaNewSEveryone knows our sciences (and thus humanity’s life force) have been thwarted, hindered and obstructed, taken over (appropriated) by the forces of materialism, especially since Tesla’s time.
This week, Friday, 11/11/11, Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take, Kimberly and Foster Gamble’s film premieres on the Internet, worldwide, in 10 languages.  Look for it. Unveiled in the film are truths (physics of life) we sense and aspire toward yet have accepted as unattainable. The information in Thrive shifts humanity, polarized in unknowingness, into the Light of Knowledge. The “sensed beauty” of our world becomes a reality. This information in “Thrive” forms the foundation of our new culture and civilization.
In Ancient Atlantean times, when gods lived on Earth, the Hierarchy (great teachers, overseers of Earth) gave instinctual, non-thinking (the mind was not developed) humanity various inventions that allowed for the building of great cities and beautiful buildings (remnants exist today), temples, air machines, knowledge of sanitation, hygiene, foods, etc. Developed under the wise guidance of the Hierarchy, humanity thought of these inventions as “magic.” The Initiates & Adepts (levels within Hierarchy) employed their knowledge of the nature of matter and energy (physics), which today we would call “scientific discovery.” This “physics” (nature of energy) was a gift to humanity.
Eventually a crisis precipitated the flooding of the world—resulting from a clash between the forces of darkness/materialism and the Forces of Light (Hierarchy). Humanity, in between, perished, with a few, who carried the Light, entering Noah’s Ark.
Today, we are once more at this “crisis” point (a higher level of the spiral).

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Nov 10–16, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Your passionate love of nature perhaps has experienced a few setbacks or separations, or a coldness has come over your relationships, which is best thought of as introducing practicality in relationships. Or perhaps you’re thinking of marriage and commitment. Allow certainty to guide you so impulsiveness doesn’t prevail. Travels, journeys, study, justice are part of all decisions.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
It’s important to have physical closeness at this time with someone, even a special pet. Your love of nature needs a bit of care so Venus doesn’t feel left out. Venus watches over you, providing a sense of intelligent well-being. Without love you can droop a bit, feeling out of contact. Money should come your way. Or resources that you appreciate. Look at art.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
None of your friends or partners considers life with you boring. You’re the Twins (two in one) of the zodiac, one face then another facing the world. The purpose of your dual nature is to provide two
realities to humanity, a sense of
polarity, of this and that, so humanity can observe two sides of all issues. So few realize your function and gift. Do you? It’s foundational to intelligence.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Tending and caring for the well-being of everyone is your task due to your extreme sensitivity toward humanity and the life process. Sometimes you overlook yourself believing others are equally nurturing (or should be, you think). This isn’t astrological reality. Each sign has a different task to accomplish. Can you begin to nurture yourself? It’s most important.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You are either a knight or a Joan of Arc, a king or a queen, a savior and a server. Lion or lioness, you’re able to captivate the hearts and minds of everyone, shower others with intense love while needing complete attention in return. In between these dramatic interludes, tend carefully to money and resources, saving for a later time of unusual need. Chiron soon enters your house of resources with others.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
On the surface you seem quiet, poised, calm, collected and rather cool, Inside you’re a vessel of passion, love runs deep, and like Taurus you’re very loyal to those you love, even after death. Here is a rule for Virgos. Never criticize, never compare, always praise. We become what we praise. That’s a new mantram of reality.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
You love being with others. You love a crowd of humanity working together. You love beauty, recognizing it (or its lack) everywhere. As we journey through relationships, we learn how to be in them. We learn to discern outer beauty from inner, true intelligence from glamour, true love from false. Libra functions within relationship in order to learn about them. What is your present learning curve?

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Soon you’ll have Saturn entering your sign (of the Disciple). Saturn is the Dweller on the Threshold, the purveyor of tests to determine how strong you’ve become in the last seven years. Saturn will lessen the intensity of emotions. You’ll be less consumed by passions and more directed toward developing the mind. You’re increasing in balance and poise now.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Your extreme idealizations can sometimes create havoc with life’s realities filled with paradoxes and emotional vicissitudes. You see the potential for goodness in everyone. In relationships you believe all needs will be met. You gaze at the stars; you have faith and practice positive thinking. For greater real happiness, here’s a newer mantram (which I told Virgo). “We become what we praise.” It’s a new position.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You display deep constancy and dependability and when loving someone, you’re there forever. Within all this reliability, steadiness and fidelity there’s a spontaneous creature (you) seeking creative self-expression. Your true nature is artistic, imaginative and inventive. Often, being quiet as you traditionally are, others don’t recognize your true light. Over time this will change as the spotlight swings toward your accomplishments.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You will look at your work in the world and wonder at its connectivity with others. This connection with humanity is your life’s purpose. You know that “contact releases Love.” Often we find you alone in an endeavor you have created. Always you must have freedom of movement and of choice. Always you need friends around. Be very vigilant and alert with finances. Be responsible with them.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You have empathy and compassion. Often you see the potential in others and feel it’s your responsibility to bring that potential forward. Sometimes you take lovers (or friends) who are “potentials.” After a time you become disappointed. You realized the potential, not the reality. You turn away. Your watery sign hovers around Neptune and Chiron. Anything held out to you dissolves. You stand alone. Here you grow.

I'm a pisces also and Risa really hit home for me this week. She touched the very core of (and I'll speak just of myself here) what I, a sincerely compassionate, smiley, bouncy and simpatico little fish with a tortured artist type angst that has overstayed its welcome, have focused so much of my energy on. Call it naive desire, but being the one serving boat loads of empathy to whoever so needed it, understandably, I always figured should I need it family and friends would line up to reciprocate. Well...that just isn't the case, and I realize that just because us pisces ~ do unto others as WE would have them do unto us~ ...most other people don't work that way. So im letting those disappointments fall through the hour glass...and yes, alone, I am contented that I have within myself a reliable potential and an equal desire to grow.

I'm a Pisces, too, Joys. The issue of relationship is Libra. We would need to look at your whole chart to see which area of your chart you're writing from, referring to. Sincerely, Risa

I think you sometimes read Pisces through a tough lens. We Pisceans need the world to lighten up on us a bit. The challenge is always about relationships. We've all been so hurt but have such an immense power to carry on with empathy and compassion along with the need for truth..

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.
