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.

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.
