Tracking the New Era Community

RisaNewS

 

Well here we are in the New Year of 2013. We survived the end of 2012. We’re shifting into the new Aquarian Age. We now must become “trackers” and builders of the new culture and civilization, creating the New Era Community.

Pluto and Venus in Capricorn will help us as will the Capricorn new moon, the first of 2013 occurring early morning Friday (21 degrees). The “Gate” to the new world opens up for us.


The stars’ instructive New Year message for humanity seeking to create the new world … transform all ways of living; apply the new physics unlocking new technology; help each other; cultivate illumined minds; not be distracted by continued materialism; ask Mercury (Hermes, planet of direction) for help; follow the stars (learning their significance); apply all impressions received during Festival week.

We are to stop all previous commerce and ways of being. Have courage. Create community. Observe without prejudice the course of world events. See in them the hands of the inner spiritual government. The time has come for the turn in Evolution. The forces for this have been gathered and brought together. The stars and heavens support the New World. They do not support the old. Ask, “Where do I stand?”

We are to apply our best efforts. In this labor of creation the Great Ones greet us. Blessed with knowledge and with each other, let us realize the time is now. Let us begin our labors. Creating the new world. These are the words of the New Year, 2013, a year of gathering and working in harmony together. We enter the Flame.



Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jan. 3–9, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20

So much change is occurring it’s even surprising you with a complete reorientation of your public image and work in the world. Hang on. This is a long ride. Allow no control issues to limit your freedom. You will be confronted with issues of power and control – yours and others. Learning how to recognize power over or power with? Maintain poise. Balance yourself.




taurusTaurus April 21–May 21

The past is present and continues to be. You may have kept objects and articles from family for years and years, that need assessing, so giving much away is best, lest you become limited in movement and travel. A clear well-lighted environment is best. Minimal and clean is better. “Let the sun shine in,” so that your creative talents flourish, and are not hidden by the past.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You will feel you’re wearing a lucky charm, a four-leaf clover, a talisman of fortune this year. You will have more choice than usual. It’s as if you had been reciting the “Gayatri,”an ancient Hindu prayer that brings expansion and increase. Work may be challenging. Something disappears, something hurts. Turn toward what is dear to your heart. You must define it this year.




cancerCancer June 21–July 20

Unusual and innovative studies will be of interest and as you learn you will teach. Do not withhold information with those close to you. Do not have the glamour of thinking everything’s personal. If you withhold you will be seen as someone who has secrets and thus untrustworthy. New responsibilities arise with family and children. Conserve your energy and strength. Garden most of the time. Nature is the body of God.




leoLeo July 21–August 22

Home feels like a restriction with responsibilities making you unable to leave. You want freedom to come and go, travel, move about, change patterns and experience new environments, cultures, arts and people. You also might seek to study. However, you feel held back by tasks and promises. Weekly massages or another healing modality eases restrictions, and inwardly offers forgiveness.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22

You become more visible. Sometimes visibility and recognition are offered, but we must demur (be reluctant) for spotlights can become too bright. It’s important to bring forth creative skills still hidden within. It’s also important to care for any vehicles – check-ups, insurance, registration, new tires, and things that make you safe and law-abiding. Careful with communication. Offer kindness.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22

Those close to you, intimates especially, will be experiencing change in their lives. They look to you for support and stability. Maintain balance and poise in the coming year, allowing those who depend upon you to experience your wisdom, reliability and sensitiveness. You will have much to experience yourself. Surprising things—travel, study, spiritual encounters and reconciliation within the heart.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21

Tend to your hearth and health in the coming months. Keep warm and dry. Exercise daily so your well-being can be balanced and in harmony. Professionally things may feel haywire, with strange behaviors from co-workers. When the new energies come into the world, people react and respond differently. Whatever you say to others is heard and listened to. When speaking, remember the virtues.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20

These things you will experience—a new identity, profound understanding about finances, a bit of passion, intensity in communication, family wounds revealed and then disappearing, a topsy-turvy sense of creativity, integration and a deepening of spirituality. These are some of the events you can look forward to. Preserve your energies and seek only the truth in all matters. Sag is the sign of Truth.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20

You’re encountering deep and profound life events. Pluto has taken up residence in your life. You experience intense feelings, emotional responses more profound than most can imagine. Allow these. Know they will pass. Your life is changing inside and out. You will be called to work in the world when the world is ready for you. It’s preparing. Know you always do your very best. Place those words in your heart.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18

The coming months bring an increase of inner strength. The last year felt vulnerable. You will continue to experience changes reflecting your past. Focus upon building a new foundation that includes a spiritual practice, participating in like-minded groups (who think like you), and honing professional skills in your work world. Careful with finances. They may slip away. Take Aconite if you feel like lightning has hit you.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20

In your personal life, be very careful with resources. Do not overdo with money or with energy. You need regular exercise, especially swimming. A natural pool or salt-water pool is best. Visualize this available to you. You offer to the world ways of seeing different from the norm. You offer inspiration and information that helps heal the world. There is more to come that you will offer the world. Something wonderful happens with family.

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
