Time For The Earth Grand Trine

RisaNewSWe have an interesting and eventful week. Saturday’s sky has a Grand Trine in earth, signs of the three planets that rule (distribute) Scorpio (sign of Discipleship). Forming a triangle in the sky are Mercury (in Taurus), Mars (in Virgo) and Pluto (in Capricorn) at eight and nine degrees—eight is reorientation (Scorpio) and nine is Initiation (Capricorn). Earth and her kingdoms, especially humanity, are in a state of reorientation and initiation.


Simultaneously, Sun joins Jupiter in Taurus, expanding and forging new values (gold out of lead) in humanity. Mercury in Taurus offers the Ideas from the Mind of God, to “restore the Plan on Earth.” With Mars in Virgo, a new state of consciousness for the world is gestating, soon to be birthed. Topping this triangle of energy, like the Olympic torch, is Pluto in Capricorn, accelerating the transformation of structures, eliminating what’s no longer useful for the coming new world.

These three potent earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), when they meet and fuse, deeply affect humanity. They accelerate our evolution, offer the Light of Knowledge, call us to discipleship and inform us we are to prepare for a most important Initiation. A new kingdom is forming—the Kingdom of the Soul. Initiatory events occur at the times when specific stars and planets align.

Humanity today, unconsciously polarized on the plane of emotions, will become aware and awake. New rituals will emerge and inaugurate the Plan of Restoration on Earth. All service is governed by ritual of which the new and full moons and the Three Spring Festivals are a template.

The Earth (feminine entity) Grand Trine occurs on Mother’s Day, a recognition that the Feminine principle is “rising” for the Aquarian Age.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of May 10th, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You are learning about the use of your life force, your sense of altruism, the ability to initiate and undertake anything, even the risky and questionable, your sense of self-worth and of being valued, the fact that you are able at this time to shape an idea and anchor it into matter. Invite others to learn this.


taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
You teach us the use of positive thoughts, of positive actions that deter us away from negative thinking which obstructs us from moving forward. The fact that you are very principled, ethical and ask others to also have morals and principles needs to be recognized. We are grateful. You have a purity of action and light up our Path with goodness.


geminiGemini May 22–June 20
A guardian angel hovers over and around your life at this time. Can you see or sense it? Angels take our forlorn sadness and turn it into hope, faith and knowledge that “love underlies everything.” Your angel also guides you to solitude. Just for a while. A meditative state of visualization vitalizes your life force. You will learn Mercy.



cancerCancer June 21–July 20
It’s important to be out and about, away from family, even though family is your entire life. But other groups are valuable to your well-being. You are influential, important, nurturing and helpful to so many. However, your shyness doesn’t allow this to register. You are also tolerant and forgiving. Humanity’s progress is your progress.


leoLeo July 21–August 22
Your kindness comes forth because you realize that all leaders need to have kindness or they destroy those who look up to them for leadership. You understand this. You excel at everything. Allow this excellence to become mature, to expand, to be ethical. Value others’ achievements. Let them surpass you. That is the leader’s (teacher’s) purpose.


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Go slowly and you will make it to where you are going. This is applied to travel as well as study. You always seek knowledge that, like Jupiter and his daughter Pallas Athena, leads to wisdom. You enjoy sharing knowledge. Be aware of whether people are listening or not. Sometimes they are not ready for your depths of information. Don’t get sad. They will be, someday. What inspired you these days?


libraLibra September 23–October 22
In between tending to your ceaseless professional work, you’re able to strategize, research and investigate new realities, getting to the root cause of any situation. Your instincts unravel mysteries and solve things deep and complex. In between you still display great charm and grace and continue to stabilize your ever-shifting relationship(s). Know that you are both of value, together.

scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
You must attempt to cultivate close relationships. Just one or two will do. When you allow it to come forth. You do best in relationships at this time. They are important for your fair play to emerge, your value to be reflected, your goals to be reached. We all need help. You, too, at times. You are able to negotiate. This is an extraordinary gift.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
Your very ethical high standards are apparent at work. Faith in others and respect for their abilities are how you expect everyone to treat you. Sometimes others do not reflect your ethics or morals. This presents a choice. You always choose the higher path, knowing the consequences of not. Many watch you carefully for cues of leadership. Careful with rich foods and overindulgence at this time.


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
Many want to be around your generosity, playfulness and warmth. Children especially trust you. Adults and young ones recognize your creativity, ability to entertain, ability to rest when needed, ability to teach, your sense of aesthetics, patience, love with no complications, and helping others learn. Did I miss anything? Think greenhouses and fruit trees.
 
aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
 You are guided to have safety and security and deep roots in your home. You value loved ones, yet you keep a certain distance so that freedom and your world work can be accomplished. Careful of things occurring behind the scenes. Careful of criticisms (yours or others). Maintain ethics and truth at all times. Careful driving.


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
You will move into a planning stage, endlessly planning agendas, creating lists, sorting and tending. You have begun to share with others all your ideas, thoughts, teachings so everyone can have access to the big picture of life. You offer all that you have. In return many seek connections with you. You seek to expand networks, improve communications. The future comes to meet you.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward.
