International Astrology Day And More ...

RisaNewSEveryone will be at the Thrive premiere this Thursday (Del Mar) and Friday (USCS). A new conversation about all things new (Uranus in Aries) is needed in our town providing us with new thinking that, together, creates the new culture & civilization. Saturday, Aquarius moon, is St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick taught the Trinity, the three Aspects of God, Will, Love/Wisdom and Intelligence with three-leaf clovers. Monday night, early Tuesday morning spring begins. With the Sun at the equator, the Sun seed in our bodies, following the Sun’s path, has settled in our hearts. Monday is Pisces moon. As Pisces saves the world, Aries says “let’s bring in all things new, here, eliminate what is no longer working, decide how to initiate the new society, the new conversation, the new thinking under the new Laws & Principles (Uranus in Aries). Tuesday is International Astrology Day. Astrology is the language and new psychology of the Aquarian age. Wednesday, Sun joins Mercury (messenger) in Aries. The Sun (our Solar Logos, Ray 1) has begun a new solar cycle (every 11 years, thus solar flares, electromagnetic storms, all affecting life on Earth). This is how our world will change and how the old will pass away. Pluto in Capricorn will see to it. During the Mercury & Mars retrograde we ponder upon and envision together the new world. We are its creators.. (More at nightlightnews.com.)

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 15–21, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You shift from instinctual knowing to searching for self-identity. You need both for all of our identities are changing as fast as the world is changing. We are reflecting this changing world. Unless of course we are stranded in the old world but this doesn’t apply to you, always the one initiating new things. Know that you will responsibly apply yourself to all challenges.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You might be feeling different these days, vulnerable, tender, nostalgic, inflamed, exhausted, unable to sleep or sleeping too much. Your digestion may be off, your eyes tired, your stamina lessened. Be very careful with diet. Learn what your dosha (ayurevedic constitution) and blood type are and eat accordingly. Seeking alternative health care would help. You are valuable, we need you. Stay healthy.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Each week I ask what your dreams and visions are. I ask these questions because visions propel us into the future. They are based on desires and aspirations. When we envision things, we create a magnetic field around that vision and it “calls” things to us. Some of us no longer have visions. We have despaired of visions ever coming true. Where do you stand on this? Because at this time in the world your visions lead (or don’t) others.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
The planets form an umbrella at the top of your chart. This umbrella of stars and planets is not shading you. They are casting you in light - of accomplishment, appropriate responsibility, a vibrant sense of achievement. Your presence helps others feel successful and move forward. An important task and identity. We know you’re shy. We know you notice.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Your sense of justice stands alongside your sense of adventure. You need the adventure, the rest of the world, including the kingdoms, need justice. And so you shift from self to the world and back again until the two synthesize and you simply become the adventurous one creating a just world. New groups around you form. Leos are leaders leading with heart.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
I wonder how you’re doing with the ceaseless Mars retrograde in Virgo. I wonder what you are thinking and if you’ve shifted back to the past, if you feel estranged in a desert of aloneness, if you’re feeling critical of others, which leads criticism back to self. I wonder if you’re in the preparations and purifications of Lent (the best way to respond) cultivating the virtuous life. What is the virtuous life?

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Relationship is the entire focus at this time and well into spring. You want to be worthy of esteem through acts rooted in kindness, compassion, a generous spirit that produces real love. You want, within deep change, to maintain stability, a foundation based on love and respect. Each day you become more sensitive. Think on others who are also sensitive. Especially to you. Is there a need to forgive?

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
So much energy is in reserve now, held behind the scenes. Mars, your planet, retrograde so long, will, mid April, burst forth like a rocket, its trajectory (your passions) unknown. Each day you carefully accomplish daily tasks. What these tasks are depend upon whether you are a seeker, aspirant, pledged disciple, accepted disciple or Initiate. Which are you? What tasks do you accomplish each day? Why?

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
In time, things around and within you become brighter, more accessible, less hidden. You wonder always what’s the right step to take. Take no steps into the bold unknown, not yet, unless it’s the bold unknown within the self. Take seriously the Lenten preparations. The Mercury retrograde takes you home again, really or metaphorically. There’s work to be done with family and something else there. What is it?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You’ve entered a new world, one offered and chosen. It has new life, vitality, color, shape, beauty and it holds your future. Step lightly there for now. Later you will be a leader. For now, all the stars and planets are creating a new stable foundation for you. Like a carpet of light for you to step into and on. It’s most important to tend to family in new ways. Ponder quietly on this. Revelations will eventually appear.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
The planets and stars are creating a stellium (many) of light within your brain and mind. You might be thinking at the “speed of light.” Do you know that there’s something faster than the speed of light? It would be good to take notes during this time when your mind will feel it’s in a shower of meteors. Within each spark of light is an idea to be anchored. This is a serious time of revelation for you and your Aquarian tasks ahead.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20 
For years you’ve been following the guidelines of others while simultaneously following inner guidance. It’s important for you to identify at this time the value of your work, abilities, knowledge and gifts. They bring others into new states of identity, create (even if resisted) new conversations and allow others to greater awareness. You will be offered much in the coming months. Assess with care, invoking right timing.

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
