Our first week of December, candles lit for Advent, we remain under the shadow of the lunar eclipse. The end of the Mayan calendar occurs in three weeks as the Festival of the New Group of World Servers begins. We have gifts to make (no more buying), food to prepare, guests to invite, trees (or Hanukkah bushes) to trim, lights to hang as the days move deeper into dark stillness. Now is a good time to explain about the end of the Mayan calendar (Dec. 21). The eclipses (something disappears, task completed), especially and since the May 1999 eclipse, have prepared us for this date, assisting Earth and her kingdoms to release all obstructions hindering the new templates, patterns and archetypes to develop the new world. The purpose of the Eclipse is to disrupt and destroy illusions, beliefs, mayas, distortions and glamours—internal and external—so that humanity can awaken. At the May 1999 eclipse the Sun was actually at the very center, in the “dark rift,” the darkest part of the Galactic Center. Our world since then has been in great world turmoil. In 2000 the Shamballa Force, Will, Purpose and Light of God, was released onto our planet. Time began to accelerate. Both the dark (materialism) and the light (spiritual ascendency) have become exceedingly apparent. Humanity is now asked to choose between these polarities. Our choice is our future. On Dec. 21, the Earth slowly re-emerges from the darkness of the birth canal. The “light” (within us, Earth) is rekindled. By 2016 the Sun moves completely out of the galactic center/darkness. From 2012 till 2016 new gifts for humanity will be offered, recognized, cultivated. It is good to know this. So, as with our Advent wreath, we can prepare—first through truth, then knowledge and then gratitude.
Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Nov. 29–Dec. 5, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs
Aries-March 21–April 20
You will begin to seek harmony within relationships. You will no longer be the dominant one. Instead seeking balance and equanimity is your focus. You’re changed. You’ve become a peacemaker. Let’s define the process toward peace through the Esoteric (Soul-focused) lens. We begin with intentions for Goodwill, which lead to Right Relations, which evolves into the Peace Process. You cultivate this. It makes you very magnetic.
Taurus April 21–May 21
You become even more practical and helpful, then compassion develops, something new, often only ascribed to suffering Pisces. You become more thoughtful and expressive. There is no ostentation, no flowery exhibitions or drama. Just steadfastness. You become interested in design, architecture, gardens and all things that create a sustained systemic flow. The devas begin to speak with you.
Gemini May 22–June 20
You ask when do the two brothers (Castor and Pollux) become one? Always you seek this oneness. In between you are romantic and playful but sometimes keep this intact and behind the scenes. Beauty, art and music, especially music, your hidden Sag side, are most important. Your surroundings must reflect this or you enter into sadness. You love deeply, silently, you are loyal. Tend to your heart’s desires.
Cancer June 21–July 20
You’re impelled to bring your home and surroundings into a state of beauty, balance and harmony that allows you to feel peace. You have a loving personal touch only a nourisher understands. Not sentimental yet very sympathetic. When you love someone you have great emotion. How you were raised affected your thinking. Over the years you’ve created new ways, overriding your upbringing.
Leo July 21–August 22
You realize that your tone, intentions, agendas and past sadnesses can filter into communication, creating misunderstandings within self and others. You begin to consider diplomacy, being more truthful with tact and charm. It’s important to compliment others now. At first, it’s uncomfortable. Compliments are holy words that summon the true spirit of others. Compliments reflect the reality of another’s value. You too are valuable.
Virgo August 23–September 22
You have a talent ... of finding things of beauty and value, form and function. Throughout your life you develop good taste. You’re generous, offering others gifts, not as rewards, but reflecting your affection. Use your beautiful kind voice to help others feel safe and secure. Begin to work with natural oils and develop your own scent. The devas will work with you.
Libra September 23–October 22
Some would call your needs too dramatic, extravagant. However, close friends realize your tastes of well-defined luxury have a touch of whimsy with a talent for design. When you apply your abilities to food, the results are deliciously comforting. Love is most important to you. When lacking you turn away. Never to return. We weep in the misunderstandings.
Scorpio October 23–November 21
Sometimes you get hurt but don’t tell anyone. Instead you hide behind veils of bravery and courage, determined to not allow your heart to be vulnerable ever again! You try to be safe in the world. Open affection with a loved one is not safe for you. Sometimes you’re secret in your affairs. Still no one knows. In terms of comfort these days, be sure to dress your feet in the most comfortable of shoes. Bespoke is best.
Sagittarius November 22–December 20
You feel the need for real friends. Not just acquaintance, not co-workers, not people you must impress or people you make laugh. You seek real and true friends, unafraid of you. Friends you can’t overwhelm, override, impress with your brains or brilliance. You also need them to be a bit unconventional. Tend carefully to calves and ankles. Keep them warm. With friendship comes the essence of responsibility. Are you?
Capricorn December 21–January 20
All things different and cultural seem to land on your doorstep, knock on your door, enter your home, are in your choice of books, art and clothing. Thoughts of freedom seem to have no limits. You’re not really confined but somehow you feel restrained. The Sag meditation is inspiration. It expands your sense of self, mind and heart. As you assume yoga poses, ask what inspires you. Keep your hips and thighs warm.
Aquarius January 21–February 18
You seem ultra casual in life but underneath there’s a need for an intense depth in relationship. You’re very vulnerable with those you love. Your heart’s on your sleeve. You are devoted and attentive. Love feels like a healing for your body. When the other is not what you expect, when you are disappointed, you easily become disenchanted, forlorn. Then time passes and you love again. Tend to your lower back.
Pisces February 19–March 20
How you love is by being present, listening, being available, curious, asking questions. At times you feed people flowers you’ve grown and cultivated. Your goals now are to find order in the disharmony all around, to find harmony in the systems breaking down, to discover what you truly want and need and to take steps toward this. Even if it’s simply writing it down in a small journal no one sees. Bake for the holidays. Give it all away.
