Three Lights Meet, Blend, Rise Up

RisaNewS

Readers: please read my website and FB page. As I write this column (a week ahead) I do not know the outcome of the elections or even if they occurred. I will have more updated information on my website (nightlightnews.com).  What I know astrologically is Mercury’s retro, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, Scorpio’s Nine Tests and the solar eclipse stimulate vast, unexpected, life-changing transformations, revolutions, revelations and social unrest. Amidst these challenging aspects humanity must observe patterns while remaining poised in a world every moment on the brink of dissolution. Tuesday is new moon solar eclipse. Solar eclipses signify an end to essential aspects of our lives. Mercury, as “messenger,” squares Neptune. Matter dissolves away. Nothing’s left. Reality evaporates. Social chaos, migrations, relocations occur. Humanity becomes disoriented and disillusioned. Our “illusions” disappear. We begin to see clearly reality. Neptune in Pisces is involved, creating a complete dissolution (refining and uplifting matter). Neptune focuses Pisces for humanity attempting to “save” the world. Humanity moves toward Discipleship (Scorpio), working through conflict, chaos and dissolution to achieve a new state of harmony. Humanity asks “What is happening to us, where are we, why is all this occurring?” New moon night Mercury enters Scorpio. Humanity’s faith will be tested. We see we are in the worst and best of times, end times when opportunity arises, our cup half empty and half full, at the razor’s edge. World Disciples (humanity), we stand together and enter the battle in Scorpio where three lights meet –the personality/form, the Soul and Life itself.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Nov 8–14, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs


ariesAries-March 21–April 20

Much of your life is being reviewed now for the purpose of making a clear break with the past. A new cycle of reality begins for you and while you don’t often review things, you will now as an entirely new life path appears. What shatters the past is the need for freedom and independence, so new priorities can take hold. You must initiate all that’s new.




taurusTaurus April 21–May 21

Something important, around for more than 30 years has now been completed as if by magic. Magic is an ancient word that means “bringing spirit into matter; bringing the invisible (etheric) into the visible.” We say to you, “Good work.” Now a prosperity thought-form takes hold different than before. You are committed to the future (off-the-grid and sustainable) by being prepared.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20

Ideas leap from the different parts of your brain and you come to a complete and holistic way of thinking. This is Chiron’s gift. You write, study and communicate to a greater audience knowing that humanity needs, above all, to be educated. If you were given a teaching position in a college, what would you teach?




cancerCancer June 21–July 20

Your day-to-day life, situations, events, duties and realities will seem to turn into a tailspin. You wake up (if you sleep) on a different side of the bed. Your mind reviews over and over ideas, plans, aspects and people from the past. You seek the path ahead. Instead you see the path behind. This has purpose. Walk, relive and forgive it (the past). Then it’s gone.




leoLeo July 21–August 22

Old love affairs have their way of reminding us what is still incomplete, not understood, and the need to make things right. There are some old love-affair realities in need of further attention. Lest dreams continue to afflict you and old images re-appear. You’re called to be creative with the material in your love affairs. An altar filled with wildness and perspective, perhaps?

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22

Many of the planets will move into your fourth house of home, nurturing, foundations and family. Something new is occurring there like ideas that have become ideals. Perhaps there are long journeys to and from home. Perhaps seeking a home elsewhere in areas filled with culture. Careful with resources. Tend to them with loving discipline.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22

You will consider what it means to be fair. Encountering situations unfair to you sensitizes to the virtue of fairness, wanting to be fair in the future. But first consider where you did not exhibit fairness in the past. Make amends. From now on, be fair, just, kind, and share. Do not be greedy, asking for more than others can give. Always what you give is returned a hundred-fold.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21

So much is beyond our control and those who have great power at first don’t understand this. Then they do. You are one of these. Nothing is what it seems on the surface. Allow yourself to observe, research and come to understand this so you do not end up with illusions of superiority or defensiveness. Failure to recognize the truth will eventually lead you astray. Share all resources with others.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20

Rethinking who you are to others, how they see you, how you see yourself and refining how you present yourself are your objectives the next three weeks. You’ll consider things about yourself needing adjustments—daily habits, exercise, diet, and the ability to change your mind whenever and with whomever you choose. Previously resolved issues may return for review. Looking back is good. Then you don’t anymore.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20

You find a place of comfort for yourself perhaps in the garden. You’re waiting for events initiated before the retrograde to come together and synthesize. During the retro make no agreements or monetary moves, sign no papers, create no plans. It’s a time of contemplation and review of events from the last four months. Life is restructuring itself behind the scenes. After the three weeks, decisions will look different. Rest now.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18

It will be more and more dangerous in the coming year to be in the inner cities. Plan on having a place outside the city where you maintain humanistic ideals, away from technological electrical waves, where social reform means back to the land and off the grid. I say these words to specific Aquarians who are the foundations of humanity’s future. You know what’s coming. You cannot continue to not prepare.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20

As a new cycle begins for you the spiritual aspects of life take up hours and hours of your day. You did not plan this. However, you hear a new call, the call of those in need. And you know that the new Discipleship (Scorpio’s task) is to see the needs of humanity and to respond to those needs. You also have a personal need. To be fully engaged with art—fine art, folk art, contemporary art, ancient art, the art of dance, song and music.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
