Pisces Light, Ends The Darkness

RisaNewSWe are living within the Light of Pisces, the “Light of the World that ends forever the darkness of matter.” Potent words for the two fish, one facing downward toward matter and the other facing upward, yearning for the Path of Return. Connecting the two fish is a silver cord. The Pisces glyph represents the life of humanity – leaving our Spiritual home, entering Earth (form and matter), experiencing passion, suffering, attachments, separations, and eventual liberation and redemption (upliftment of all matter into the Light). The early lives of Pisces (Sun, Moon, rising, Moon, Mars) is often filled with misunderstanding (by others), confusion, distortion, drugs, alcohol and misadventures difficult to comprehend. All of these experiences “educate” the Soul about form and matter. Through many many lifetimes the Soul is in a state of quiet experience so that later, when the personality is strong and serviceable, the Soul then emerges, takes hold of the personality and begins to direct its life energies. When we see someone in the throes of life’s vicissitudes we can identify correctly that the Soul within them is learning about life in form and matter. We can then enter into the very essence of Pisces, that of compassion, understanding that “love underlies all events in all lives in all matter in all times.” We are in the last week of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. It is said that all actions, good or bad, are reflected 100,000 times in the New Year! This calls for intentions only for Goodwill. We think on these things during Lent.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of March 1–7 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
It’s best to refrain from being out and about. You’re experiencing the energies of Pisces, which are often a bit confused when in the midst of crowds for any length of time. It’s better to be reflective, solitary, and with only a few people who understand (astrology) and support your many endeavors. Dreams and visions are important now. What are your visions for the future and how/where do you see yourself in the coming year?

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Each day you enter a dream state, a place where your creativity emerges and you fashion a future world of safety and survival. You attempt to share this with others but they become impatient. You stand solitary in your knowledge knowing it’s your responsibility to bring forth the resources (land) needed to create the new world. Everyone around you has their own gift to bring forth. Recognize them.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Where are you and what are you doing each day and who do relate to and what are you reading and what are your plans and what is your timing and what are you hoping for and what do you need? Can you follow and answer these questions? Your answers are like a preliminary resume to join a spiritual community. All answers are correct. We’d just like to get to know you more. What meadows are you in these days? What flowers are blooming?

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Are you considering journeying somewhere? What are you thinking and have your perceptions changed? Do you find angry or aggressive thoughts in your mind and do you feel guilty about them? It seems essential that your home be ordered and organized. Even if little gets accomplished, do one organizing task each day. A boat (for you or a child) is a good idea to invest in.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
A sense of reorientation hidden behind seeming multiple veils is creating a state of transformation in your life. Are you having water leaks at home or oil leaks in your car/truck? Observe and check all things mechanical and liquid. People or geographies call you from far away. You know your response will change your life forever. Enter the deeper mysteries. The door has opened.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Signs in opposition, like Virgo & Pisces, create an interplay of dark and light, up and down, here and there, until the two, frightened of each other, finally make peace, integrate and synthesize. All the signs must integrate. With so many planets in Pisces and Mars in Virgo retrograde, the possibility of synthesis can occur. Virgo is the sign of service preparing for the saving quality in Pisces. You are both now.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
You may feel exhausted when confronted with your usual work. And then you may feel a wounding difficult to express. There’s a purpose to that wounding, providing you with the ability to have compassion for and to heal others. However, you must come to a state of courage where you can clearly articulate your wound without judgment, blame and with dispassion. Wounds become life tools. They balance us. They love you.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
If you surrender completely to your creativity, you will be rewarded with an expansion of gifts you didn’t know existed. Creativity for you works under the inspiration of aspiration and vision, which then expresses the beauty which all forms veil. You are to this revelation of beauty underlying life-purposes, which motivates all life events and forms. Do you understand this?

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Know that your well-being is intact no matter how you feel or sense things to be. No matter what you think your financial situation is, there are realistic new resources and avenues seeking you so you can rest easily and not enter into states of unease, unreality or feelings of lack. Nothing needs doing. You are supported by all the energies in the world. Turn to others and also offer them this support. Your supply is limitless.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You may be called to express yourself in ways that could upend people’s belief systems. Know the Ray 4 reality we live within–the new harmony emerges from chaos and conflict. You always express new ideas with compassion, clarity, sensitivity and kindness. When speaking with others create a line of light from heart to heart, mind to mind, Soul to Soul (five-pointed star above our heads). Then the Soul takes over.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You’ve returned to a place where you again ask the questions, “Why am I here, what is here that supports me and where do I go from here?” At times you wonder if there are enough resources to support your visions. You dream of home, family, art, community. Do only what you love. Simultaneously, serve others, supporting their well-being, security, and self-esteem. All that is given is returned one-hundred-fold.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
All Pisces will enter deep within themselves. This will happen naturally with Neptune in Pisces, continuing for the next seven or more years. A profound change and life refinement takes place allowing for great accomplishments that may seem like miracles but they are not. They are your visions coming into manifestation. Maintain faith and patience.

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.
