Timetable for the Path of Return

RisaNewSThe new year of 2012 has begun. We are at its beginning. Before the retrogrades (through August) begin, we have a few preparatory thoughts to ponder. There will be much apocalyptic rhetoric in the coming year. I suggest we ignore it, turning instead toward a more positive, self-creative state of mind. It’s most important, for the next three months, for humanity to ponder upon new potentialities leading to new probabilities leading to new outcomes concerning how we live. Prevailing realities on our planet at present are held within a paradigm (and acceptance) of unsustainability and destruction. It’s time now for humanity to step upon the Path of Return. This choice will be given with more clarity as 2012 unfolds.

Sunday is the Capricorn solar festival, 1st full moon of 2012 (of Cancer). What is within the “womb” of humanity seeking externalization that will create the new world’s Sharing society? Capricorn is the “Gate where matter (humanity) returns to Spirit.” Mercury, the Sun’s messenger, entering Capricorn Sunday morning informs us, “The time of return has come.”

The NGWS, standing in the Initiatic Light Supernal of Capricorn, are turning toward suffering humanity to help with humanity’s “return” to Spirit. Simultaneously, we must begin together, to create heaven on earth. We must review our values, form community, build anew (biologic architecture) and “restore the Plan on Earth.” Here is a template for this work: www.simondale.net/house/why.net

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jan 5–11, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Your work in the world will be overshadowed by promptings and impressions from above, asking you to initiate new ideas; new possibilities creating new probabilities creating new outcomes not reflecting the past. You will have to meet important people, become one yourself. You will have to act with humility while attaining goals. Develop what is necessary to solidify this task. Only you can do this.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
It’s important to contact people far way concerning future plans, actions, agendas, and matters of a legal nature. The outer aspects of these interactions hide a deep spiritual purpose. With strength and calmness speak the truth of your aims and purposes, listen carefully to the other(s). There’s a seed of enlightenment in their words. Be not afraid to ask for all that is needed. Read Matthew 7:7.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
You hold within yourself secret talents. Whether you know of them or not isn’t important. They need to be called forth by you with intention. You can ask that they emerge and you recognize them. Do not be secretive about resources. However, you must protect them. Pay all debts on all levels—physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. You and another may need to travel somewhere to discover information. Where would that be?

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
There’s a spiritual task you’re being asked to provide from Jupiter, the planet central to the Aquarian Age distributing Love/Wisdom, Ray 2. You are to provide more love to your groups and to the communities you interact with. You are to be wise and distribute truth with pure reason and wisdom to those around you. Not gossip, not opinion, not another’s point of view, but the truth within your heart. This will safeguard you.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
In the deep reaches of work and responsibilities, are you the communicator to co-workers and colleagues? Leo is the sign with love in the heart. But sometimes that love is obscured by hurts, sadness and imperfect interactions in relationships (all relationships are). Sometimes we turn away from people, lavishing our love on pets, gardens, climbing rocks, fashioning new creations. It might be good to think of all the people you’ve known.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
It’s a special time (with Leo overshadowing daily life) for you to think upon what avocations you want to pursue, what talents, gifts and skills you possess and to think back on how you’ve cared for loved ones and what you want to do for others in terms of serving them. I see you in a garden, vines of Mandeville, pale roses and hops climbing a tall gate. Create this. For the summer.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
You’re thinking about family and friends, love and relationships and what you need. Friends are sometimes Libra’s family. You’re attempting to deepen contacts in order to have an intact family and greater sense of foundation. It may bring up childhood wounds (as it should). We cannot heal or understand until wounds surface. You have the strength to face this, the wisdom to understand it and the love, latent and in potential, to heal.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
You need to enter into more interchanges with those intelligent and as passionate as you. You need these interchanges of ideas and beliefs so you can grow and expand with new values and experiment with new plans for the future. A new foundation of thought needs to deepen your mind to meet the challenges of the new physical/new scientists. Stay focused with purposeful intent. Study all the information on the Thrive DVD.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
In observing how your sense of identity has expanded, look to your values. Compare today’s with your values 14 then 21 years ago. You’ll realize you’ve deepened into greater responsibility and success. You now ask, “What’s next?” Some Sags wonder if they care anymore. To the first Sag, “Stand in the Light” for your journey has been long and arduous. To the second Sag you’re stepping into the unknown. Remain there.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You communicate these days with great depth of feeling. Don’t worry if people step back. Your life-force is showing through, filled with the fire of intention and conviction. It’s as if God were speaking. Do you know Capricorn’s glyph is almost the signature of God? You’ll be asked to organize things, to show leadership and drive, to impress (give to) others with ideas that become ideals within them. You do this already. Yes, but now more so.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You’re going to enter into an internal state for a while, interacting and investigating things deep within; things confidential, worrisome, religious and personal. Do not feel caught up in limitations revealing themselves. They only mean you’re working toward overcoming. Place yourself first in the coming days so that you can protect yourself and maintain good to vibrant health. Someone far away calls to you. Respond.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20 
Careful telling people about future hopes, wishes and dreams. They will not be understood. Careful with your time each day. Plan early what your actions will be. Outline a time schedule. Use discipline—the first step toward working under the Will of God. Jupiter is influencing ideas and communication. Speak softly, vibrantly and always with love (another discipline). It will soothe disappointments and stabilize all endeavors.

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
