Earth Day—Creating a World Story

RisaNewSSun enters Taurus this Friday. Taurus, anchoring into the world the fiery ideas of Aries, is a beam of light emerging from the point of Light in Aries, creating a pathway of Light for humanity. Taurus, foremost Earth sign, inspires stability and the fine Art of Living. Appropriately this Monday is International Earth Day. Let’s begin to include the symbol for Earth (an encircled cross) on our astrology charts. Earth is placed opposite the Sun sign.

The purpose of Earth Day, largest civic observance in the world, is to create Right Relations between humanity, the kingdoms and the Earth. In 2009 the U.N. General Assembly affirmed interdependence existing among humans, all living species and the Earth. Earth Day seeks to define new emerging economic, social and political processes. This year the U.N. General Assembly has organized an Interactive Dialogue on Harmony with Nature. Visit harmonywithnatureun.org. Earth Day History: www.earthday.org/earth-day-history-movement.

The New Group of World Servers prepares this week for next Thursday’s full moon (lunar eclipse) Wesak Festival when the Will of God and Forces of Enlightenment enter the Earth. Jupiter this week is 15 degrees Gemini. Will a false flag (a created-conflict event) occur this week? We must be alert, discerning, vigilant and prepared.  (More at nightlightnews.com.)

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of April 18–24, 2013 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You realize ideas of security and safety have entered your thinking. You’ve shifted from initiating plans and walking away to wanting to complete things which has been, up till now, the work of Taurus. But this month, you’re assuming the abilities of Taurus. You want to build solid firm foundations and long-lasting relationships. You seek personal values and sustainable wealth. You’re changed.




taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
You have a strong sense of self. Everyone senses your strength and capabilities. You’re somewhat shy, and although it’s important to project a strong image you prefer to work quietly behind the scenes— doing your best work. You’re a leader, one who illuminates for humanity new realities to be grasped. Like the new economy of the new Sharing Society. You spend days acquiring new knowledge creating a new type of leadership.




geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You’re somewhat introspective at this time, seeking seclusion in order to gather strength. You will hide away as your energy is inward. You seek what path you are to follow, whom and what you are to serve, and how to begin to work in the new sharing society. You can be rather hard on yourself, thinking you are not accomplishing enough. Do not allow this self-criticism. This makes you feel undeserving.




cancerCancer June 21–July 20
Even though you hide behind your shell, everyone can see you’re humanitarian, one who seeks equality for everyone. You try to tell the truth. You don’t like to judge or criticize. You seek to be part of a group with goals that go beyond the individual. You have great hope for humanity. People are comforted by you for they feel your care and tolerance and sense that everyone has an opportunity to thrive.




leoLeo July 21–August 22
It’s important to know that power is a quality all Leos possess. There are two types of Leos—the outer, show-power-to-the-world Leo and the inner, quietly powerful Leo. One is dramatic externally. The other has hidden power rarely seen. Both have ambitions. Both need eventually to lead. Leos do not take orders easily. From birth they are learning how to lead. When Leos learn to manage themselves they manage others with care.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
There’s a great amount of knowledge within you. It’s important not to feel you have more than others. Everyone has a specific amount of knowledge. That knowledge belongs to them. You have knowledge that belongs to you, too. It’s good to share your knowledge with those who are seeking and asking for information and direction. When you use your knowledge with tolerance and love, the heavenly stars all line up.

 


libraLibra September 23–October 22
You have a great magnetic power. Sometimes you’re not aware of this. It has to do with the depth of your feelings—powerful, deep and intense. You’re interested in what lies hidden, what is unexplored and off-limits. You’re curious about all levels of relationships. Because, always, Librans are learning how to be in relationship. Sometimes you’re presented with great tests. You pass them, adjusting life to a higher level.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
You’ll be asked to negotiate several things in your life while appreciating on a deeper level those close to you. Although very sensitive to being left out, you never show it. For your own sense of harmony it’s important to work a bit more with others and not be so solitary. You’ll feel more successful it you work more in partnership. Your natural charm and kind nature, not often seen, will emerge. By the way, whatever it is, you’ll win.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
It’s important for you to be noticed for the unique and special abilities and many levels of creativity you possess. Sometimes you hide under a shell, not recognizing the quality and goodness of your gifts. So many times you graciously share with others with no thought of return. You have a hidden flair for drama and ability to ability for fun and to play. This too is often hidden. Show more your nourisher self.

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
I had a dream about Capricorns. You were pulled between two realities—the voice of the self and that of others. The dream said to follow your own direction, your own set of values, hopes, wishes and dreams, and not seek what others think of you. Direct your inner restlessness into creative expression, leadership and multiple forms of art. This is what creates the path of happiness.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
You need a change of environment, people, work and scenery, to keep up with your agile mind. You’re able to adapt to many environments. However, a requirement for you is the to communicate what you know and have learned. You’re a teacher. You’re also curious and think others are, too. But not everyone is curious. It takes intelligence to be curious. You’re excellent at all endeavors. For now though, tend to your money very carefully.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
  In recent years you’ve realized a need for safety and security. You have developed constancy and consistency. You never make promises, as you never want to disappoint. Usually Pisces is only able to think about survival. But now a conscious value system has been developing. You’re thinking about and building toward the future. You’re sensible and competent. Most people don’t know this about you. But we do.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
