The Spirit of Resurrection

RisaNewSWe are in the first week of spring. It is a very potent week with many world conferences, potent astrological alignments and a solar festival with the Spirit of Resurrection and the Forces of Restoration beginning to flow into the earth during the first full moon of the season.
Thursday (World Poetry Day) Venus enters Aries joining the Sun, Mars and Uranus in Aries (four fiery
fields to bring forth “all things new” this springtime).

Friday (World Water Cooperation Day), Mars/Uranus in Aries create explosive, life-changing energy and change. Saturday (Earth Hour, turning off lights/electricity for one hour) Jupiter/Saturn intersect. We must expand our discipline in order to create the new world and civilization.
Sunday (Palm Sunday), Christ rode a young donkey into Jerusalem. For a few moments among the few who could “see”, He was recognized as the Pisces World Teacher.

Tuesday (Passover begins) Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. Mars/Pluto – the transformation continues, the breakdown must go forward (Pluto in Cap) so “all things new” (Mars in Aries) can emerge. However, not without a battle of the old forces resisting the new. Jupiter and Chiron inform humanity they (we) must make a choice between the two.

Wednesday (Spring’s first full moon) is the Aries solar Festival when the Love of the Father for His children and the Forces of Restoration flow into the Earth (the Mother). They will help humanity in so many ways - restoring moral and psychological health and uplifting humanity, bringing about the emergence of the new civilization and the new spiritual materialism.”  (More at nightlightnews.com.)

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 21–27, 2013 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Everything changed for you when Mars entered Aries. Your energy listed and became more available. You also felt more impatient, wanting to move forward, engage in new enterprises, make new impressions in the world. You might feel the need to assume leadership over everyone and everything. Careful. Be kind. Be a leader, but understand you move more quickly than others.



taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
You tell everyone you’d rather remain at home and research and not go out and about for a long time. You want to catch up on tasks not tended to the past many years. Needing to maintain reserves of energy to get through each day, you need privacy and solitude. Many previous behaviors may arise. Observe them. Consider if they are useful? You may dream more. Record them. Over time they tell you a story.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You need to participate in your group of friends a bit more, seeking their cooperation in either working on a project with you or listening to you with care and intention so you can clarify your thinking. If you lead a group, teach cooperation, organize them as a team to achieve a particular goal. Ask each member their hopes, wishes and desires for the future. You’re achieving Aquarian goals. You’re a humanitarian.




cancerCancer June 21–July 20
You want to be recognized for your knowledge, abilities, and what you accomplish each day. It’s good to want this recognition for it stimulates your ability to share and provide information to others. Many are in need of real and true information. You always ask the question, “What is real and true?” When we ask, what’s needed is always given. For those seeking new work or a job, after this week step forward into the world.



leoLeo July 21–August 22
You may feel a hunger for things far from your usual life and ways of living. Other culture, people, places and things seem to be summoning you in subtle yet persistent ways. You’re restless for a new reality, a new adventure. You want new activities, conversations, new goals, new subjects to study. An outer fire blends with your inner Leo fire. Everything you seek will appear. Careful legally.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
You may be called to be more cooperative and this may be a challenge. But you can do this. Relationships will be the challenge and perhaps you will need to consult with someone concerning how to be a bit more dynamic yet loving, how to settle differences and allow everyone to be heard. Careful with impatience and ending things too quickly. Reconcile with those with whom you have had differences.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22
Life seems to be accelerating, moving faster each day. Sometimes those around you move too quickly and you feel left behind. Perhaps you’re working too hard and too long. Even though you may have abundant energy, tend to your health, make tending to your health a harmonious daily practice. Careful with inflammation and infections. Slow down on glutens, grains and all sweets.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
Intimacy is important for you at this time. There are many types of intimacy—from friendship to lovers, intimacy of the mind, the heart, and physical intimacy. Things held in common with another is an intimacy. Knowing your values is an intimate level concerning the self. Sometimes, intimacies end and sometimes a new intimacy begins, both affect you deeply. Be aware of your subtle feelings. Realize what you need. Ask for it. Intimates will help you.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
There’s so much energy flowing through your body and mind you simply can’t find any self-discipline. That’s OK if you use that unbounded energy for creative activities. You could also find children, or those who are child-like, to play with. Romantic things are good too and your love life may sense a deeper level of passion. Make sure you get enough sleep. Don’t risk anything by gambling. Just play (innocently) more.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
Much of your energy is focused at home or where your domestic self resides. You’re highly instinctual at this time and protective. It’s important that you feel secure because you are called to make important decisions concerning family and the home. When feeling unusually moody or frustrated tend to home repairs and arrange family activities. Step back if arguments begin. Old emotional issues may resurface.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
So many ideas and plans in your head that you feel a bit overwhelmed and scattered. And so you try to share these ideas with others but so many errands and tasks come in between you and sharing with others that you feel frustrated and can move into arguments if you’re not careful. Realizing you could feel impatient and impulsive, be careful driving and when using machinery, scissors or knives (while cooking).

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
It’s a good time to create a notebook or journal of values, past, present and future. Often we can ascertain values by deciding what we need. Tend to monetary issues—savings accounts, taxes, insurance, inheritances. Is something occurring with your bank? Do you need to change banks from large corporate to local? If so, do this immediately. Don’t impulse buy. It’s important to acknowledge your worth.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
