‘Astrology is …’

RisaNewSMercury retro in Pisces turns stationary direct Sunday (St. Patrick’s Day). Mercury stands still for three days before slowly moving forward. All that we held off (big purchases, decisions) can move forward now. Slowly and carefully.

Early morning Wednesday, Sun enter the fires of Aries and spring, (northern latitudes) begins. Spring Equinox is always International Astrology Day. Honoring this I quote the Tibetan teacher Djwhal Khul (Dwa-Kool) on astrology (written by Alice Bailey, his amanuensis [scribe]), Esoteric Astrology. “Astrology is essentially the purest presentation of occult truth in the world at this time. It is the science of conditioning and governing energies and forces playing through and upon the entire field of space and all that is found within that field (Earth, planets, etc). When this fact (of astrology’s significance) is grasped and the sources of those energies are comprehended, when the nature of the field of space (it is an “entity”) is correctly understood, we shall see a far wider and more closely related horizon; the relationships between individual, planetary, systemic and cosmic entities will be grasped, We shall then begin to live scientifically. Scientific living is the immediate purpose of astrology.

“Astrology, the greatest and oldest science, must be restored to its original beauty and truth before the world can gain a truer perspective and a just and accurate appreciation of the Divine Plan, expressed through the Ageless Wisdom Teachings. I endeavur to demonstrate that all-pervading unity and underlying synthesis which is the basis of all religions and the many transmitted forces (heavens)…showing how you are part of a greater whole of which you can become consciously aware …”

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 14–20, 2013 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Your ruler is Mars, the planet of desire and aspiration. Aries are the initiators of the zodiac. That’s why Aries is bold, brave and courageous. Your presence makes an impact. You are charismatic, at times a but provocative. You respond with immediacy to new situation, with passion to new endeavors, and with fearlessness when danger appears. One day you become a scholar.




taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
You are quietly assertive. Often, slow to anger. You see no need for undue and unnecessary conflict. This is what Venus would say. Venus is your protector. During these days you tend to work alone, quietly researching, attaining goals that will affect the future of humanity. You see migrations everywhere and so are preparing to help humanity in need. You will achieve your mission. You are steadfast. Sometimes alone.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You are highly intellectual by nature. Mercury, Hermes and Thoth all see to it. These are your mentors on inner levels. You are able to recognize the newest of things in the world. Quietly you assess them. Then you distribute this information, especially (and sometimes only) to the groups and friends who belong to you. You think about the collective life, a place to express your deep warmth. You long for it.




cancerCancer June 21–July 20
You think about your destiny. Sometimes you’re moody. The moon, which you resemble and who watches over you, makes that so. You apply great effort these days to all endeavors. You have goals and plans, charts and lists of things to accomplish. You seek to have more beauty around you and gradually this can be seen in your life. Bravo for all the work you’ve accomplished. Bravo. The color green/blue is important.




leoLeo July 21–August 22
It feels as if a personal reconstruction will be occurring the next months. As your emotions deepen it could feel like a crisis about to happen. Things hidden surface. Something about inheritance or investments, complex fields of endeavor, begin to be of interest. Death and sexuality, possessions and money are remembered and assessed. Whatever occurs, you become the phoenix, rising from the ashes of the past. You are purified.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Sometimes, in relationships with others you begin to think competitively and perhaps create a situation where an energetic dual begins. You seek sometimes to assume authority and thus control situations. These are symptoms of someone learning how to lead and be in charge. Let us say now that you are excellent in all that you attempt to do. You become accomplished and successful. You are a leader.  Recognize this.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22
You’re dedicated as a worker, serving others, helpful and caring. When holidays arrive, you’re the first to assist those in need. You’re practical, efficient and progressive. You love to laugh. Many are happy to work with you at their side. You teach others who look up to you. In your daily work your greatest abilities come forth. Use this same focus on your health and with your family. And someone you’ve left behind.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
No matter what others are doing at this time, you need more leisure and creativity as an outlet for your energy to express itself. You need festivals, games, projects that are long term. You need children, at times the desert, hot and dry. You need tenderness and care. You need love. Always you are responsible. Who loves you in return?

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
It seems you have several different identities. When out and about you show your outside face; happy-go-lucky, professional, fun-loving, playful. Then you go home and another identity comes forth. All of a sudden you have energy for projects and activities. You become instinctual and protective, working hard, taking charge, investing in your home (and yourself). At times you’re restless, moody and the past re-surfaces. It’s all temporary. Have fun with it.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
So many ideas come forth with so much information to communicate and impart. Careful driving and performing regular tasks. You have a passion for intellectual tasks. Take time with them. They build your mind. Communication and study are forms of taking action. Be alert for restlessness. In the middle of a spacious room begin to shake all over (several times a day), draining lymphs and liberating frustration. Take your vitamins, too.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
As you act (work) in the world so will your earnings increase. You’re concerned with material security, always seeking the right place, home, community, group of people to live with. Let it serve a higher purpose … for example, “my home will be a foundation from which my creative artistry comes forth.” No more storage units or possible warehouses. You need a home to call your own. For protection, for affection, for emotional investment.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
You will, for a while, feel a bit combative and powerfully so. You are seeking to conquer and retain a state of self-identity, action-oriented and practical. Such an impetus calls to you and all experiences in life help you find this new self-identity. Especially when you hurt and feel sorrow. You become the warrior (like a Scorpio). As you mature you see that you have been triumphant. Maintain compassion even when wielding a sword.

Venus Direct, Mercury Retro Soon, Honoring Our Labors

As Burning Man (nine days, Aug. 30-Sept. 7 in the sign of Virgo) burns in the hot white desert sands, a petal of the rose created by retrograde Venus and the twelve-petaled Sun in Virgo’s petals unfold. All of us are on the burning ground (Leo) in the womb (cave of the heart) of the mother (Virgo), gestating for humanity once again (each year) a new state of consciousness. Both Virgo and Cancer, feminine (receptive energies) signs, are from our last solar system (Pleiades). When humanity first appeared on Earth we were nurtured by the mother, a matriarchy of energies (on islands in the Pacific). Eve, Isis and Mary are part of the lineages of our ancient Mother. Overseen by the Pleiades, the Earth (matter, mater, the mother) in that last solar system was imbued with intelligence (Ray 3). As we move toward autumn, another mother, Ceres realizes she has mere weeks left with her beloved daughter, Persephone. Persimmon and pomegranate trees prepare for autumn, their colors signs of hope as the light each day continues to dim. Sunday, Venus in Leo turns stationary direct, yet continues in her shadow until Oct. 9 (when retrograde Mercury turns direct). Slowly our newly assessed values emerge from the Venus retrograde. We thought in Venus retro how to use our resources more effectively. Mercury retrogrades Sept. 17. Monday is Labor Day. Let us honor the labor of everyone, all life a “labor.” Let us honor Labor Day and all those who have “served” (labored for) us this past year. We honor their labors. We honor the labor of our parents, those who have loved us. We honor our own labors, too. We are all in service, we are all laboring. We are all valuable.

Do you overshare online?

I don’t think so. I just post things about my life, like successful things. Sometimes I just like sharing different news that I find interesting, or favorite artists, clothes, music. I like to post photos. Natalia Delgado, Santa Cruz, Server

I recently met up with three friends for dinner at Sanderlings at Seascape Beach Resort. We chose to eat outside so we could watch the sun set over the ocean, but the Aptos fog rolled in and swallowed it up.
