The Last Full Moon of 2012

RisaNewS

Friday, sometime after midnight, is the last full moon of 2012. It’s the Capricorn solar festival. This full moon of Initiation concludes both the Festival week of the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) and the long- awaited year of 2012. 

A full moon occurring during or at the close of the Festival Week (Group Impact) provides the NGWS with a greater potency of Light (revelations), opportunities to aid and assist humanity for the next seven years. In turn, the cosmic events of this last week will accelerate the intelligence, love and evolution of humanity. Light (from stars, suns, planets, Earth, etc.) contains information which translates into intelligence and love within humanity. 


During this full moon our Earth will absorb the great cosmic light, overshadowing the sign of Capricorn, released throughout the past week. This light/information will be anchored into the hearts and minds of humanity. It contains the seeds and vision of the future, a new creation built of constructiveness, love, intelligence, harmony, inclusiveness and synthesis. Every one of us can share this vision, a working out of the Plan forming the foundation for Right Human Relations and World Unity.

Let each of us enter 2013 with this imagined vision. Let none of us be swayed from our focused dedication to create a new world. Let us think in terms of the one family, one life and one humanity. There’s hard work ahead in 2013 (#6). Let us stand strong together. Happy New Year, everyone.

 

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Dec 27, 2012–Jan 2, 2013 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20

Your ability to communicate with more and more people becomes possible as you see the importance of expressing your ideas so that others can understand and help you. This is the year for stabilization. If traveling, make sure the vehicle is safe. Don’t assume more than you’re able. Make time for friends, join a group, and focus on using resources to bring forth the new culture and civilization.




taurusTaurus April 21–May 21

This coming year will test the bonds you have in relationships (all types). There are needed lessons to be learned. Most important is your communication. It’s easier to be solitary, study, read, tend to chores, garden, visualize the future. These can be obstacles to communication. All of a sudden everyone’s gone. You must learn to listen, not walk away. This will be a hard lesson. You will be challenged. You will learn.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20

You have visions to pursue, abilities to try out, freedom to get used to. Along with restlessness and a new sense of confidence you may gain weight (Jupiter in Gemini). This is natural. Jupiter expands all levels. Knowing this allows you to understand all events within an inner causal (esoteric) framework. Although freedom calls, you must maintain previous responsibilities. Allow nothing to hide your humor.




cancerCancer June 21–July 20

So many things from the past are reviewed. We grow in relationship to how much the past is loosed from the present. Our past always serves us well. Then it’s no longer useful. You will experience a caring protective time. Some of your life will be lived behind the scenes. Tend daily to each responsibility that appears. Ask yourself what you have faith in. And what supports you. Keep these close. Allow no glamours.



leoLeo July 21–August 22

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 Whatever you say to others will plant seeds of thought within their minds, providing ideas that become ideals within them. Your vision and optimism are needed for those around you who will adopt them as hope and a sense of promise. Everyone interacting with your life also needs inspiration. That is a fiery word. It’s a Sagittarian word. One that allows people to see a future filled with new direction. These are your tasks.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22

All your hidden talents, skills and gifts you tend to so carefully come forth in the New Year. They are recognized as you stand in a clear light. Everything in our lives is astrologically planned. Choose your thoughts, ideas, plans and agendas very carefully. Be aware that any gossip, judgments and criticism will be magnified and turn on you. Make everything good. God is good.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22

Seeking new understandings in the New Year you will perhaps study, travel, learn a new language, prepare new foods, discover cultures you’re unfamiliar with, write a book (or blog), find a publisher or agent. All of these will be adventurous. Your optimism senses a larger picture of reality concerning life, family and relationships. Forgiveness is a major factor. Careful with money, schemes and any type of gambling.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21

Notice your conversations. They will deepen. An inner transformation comes about; you feel a sense of power with others and a sense of empowerment. Remain in present time realizing that thoughts create the future, now or later. You assess your many resources and inheritance, physically and spiritually. You work with others, combining resources. You see that you are rich with possibilities.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20

You will assess how you relate to others, personally and impersonally. Your ability to negotiate and compromise expands. You will sense a greater joy. New partnerships are offered. Previous partnership wounds dissolve. This makes you happier, with a sense of true personal success. Blessings come your way. You consider being a coordinator, consultant, planner, coach. Or you see someone in this capacity. Be warm.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20

In the New Year, you find new friends and a group that fulfills your search for happiness. People, hearing your ideas and plans, respect and are inspired by you. Your teaching abilities emerge. You’ll be in neighborhoods, downtown, out and about, all around. As you expand into the community, home life will need tending in different ways. Do not overextend yourself. Eliminate sugar. You will connect mind and body.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18

Your mind will be filled with ideas, thoughts, hopes and wishes that are part of a long- held dream. A friendship becomes something more (or less). You’ll be more playful, less serious, taking more risks. Is there something somewhere that needs cleaning out? Eliminate items you’re not using. This will free up non-moving energy. Things may feel dramatic, up and down, emotional. Use your feelings to radiate loving kindness.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20

You will want to change your domestic situation, expand it, create an addition, move, decorate, re-design. This is your external reality. Internally you seek deeper confidence and personal security. The last years have been difficult with family and home. Emphasize art and having fun in the New Year to offset long-held grief and sadness. In the New Year you will be realistic and practical, setting your life in complete order.

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.
