I’ve Been to the Mountaintop

RisaNewSLate Thursday night on the West coast (11:11 p.m.) and early Friday morning on the east (2:11 a.m.), the first new moon of 2010 occurs at 25 degrees Capricorn. It’s also a solar eclipse, signifying something essential, concerning things Capricorn rules (governments, politics, politicians, mountains, ladders, goats, crystals, diamonds, etc.).

The personality-building seed thought for Capricorn is “Let ambition rule and let the door stand wide.” As we build our personality (over thousands of lifetimes of experiencing form and matter), ambition drives us to achieve (ladder to the top). At first fear, instinct, competition and the drive to succeed rule the life. These blind us into believing freedom is gained through accumulation of material objects, through money (Ray 3). There is a Gate (Capricorn Gate) to higher levels of awareness but until the personality is built and there is conscious awareness, that Gate is locked. However, there comes a lifetime when the needed experiences are complete, the personality is strong, when the Gate leading to intuition and freedom opens. Illusions (mental distortions), glamours (emotional distortions) and maya (physical distortions) fall away and the inner spiritual reality is recognized.  Here we are transfigured (essential change) and the rising Sun, the Light Supernal, is revealed. We rest awhile on this Capricorn mountain after our long journey from Aries. The disciple (Scorpio/Sag) becomes the Initiate (Cap). It is then that the cries of humanity are heard rising up.

On Friday, 8:52 a.m. (Pacific time) Mercury turns stationary direct (5:35 degrees Capricorn). Mars and Saturn remain retrograde. Sunday, Jupiter enters Pisces. Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day (MLK was Capricorn Sun), “I’ve been to the mountaintop” youtube.com/watch?v=BI_tQ5DdFAk). Venus enters Aquarius, Monday , following by the Sun Tuesday evening. Wednesday is Aries moon.

ARIES (March 21-April 20) You’re exploring profoundly what your right work in the world may be, what you are to do that will serve the upliftment of civilization and bring you to the recognition needed so that others follow. Keep the internal inquiry going. There are no answers yet, not for months. They depend upon your ability to focus on the questions.

TAURUS
(April 21-May 21) New ideas, concepts, school, study, traveling, the art of archery, horseback riding or horse husbandry, publishing, and studying ancient philosophies may catch your attention. Someone, somewhere recognizes your qualities, calls you to leadership. Listening is your best way of being attentive. Giving philosophical answers will not be heard.

GEMINI
(May 22-June 20) There is a deeper focus on money and investments and in this critical time of change and monetary reorientation I want to suggest how you can keep abreast of the financial times. Go to solari.com and solari.com/blog for CAF’s exceptional understanding of the economic situation worldwide. For further research become a  Solari subscriber. Of all the financial advisors in the world, this one’s the best. Share this with partners and friends.

CANCER
(June 21-July 20) Relationships this month will be on your mind – all types, levels of closeness, friendships and intimacies. It’s good to review how you are in relationships, if you are attentive, caring and sharing. Or are you focused upon yourself primarily? Adding forgiveness (of self and others) to your list of daily tasks would liberate your heart for further love encounters.

LEO
(July 21-Aug. 22)  We continue to focus on your occupation and its environments. Something shifts at work, some discipline or rule or structure or timing causing a period of fine-tuning to occur. During this time strengthen your support for others, align with them. This will insure your success should you suddenly be in charge of everything and everyone. Blend your Ray 1 (Will) with Ray 2 (Love/Wisdom).

VIRGO
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You must begin to lounge around a bit more, think of a way to create relaxation, pleasure, fun and perhaps a bit of romance (there are many kinds). Plan each week to attend musical or film events, to stroll downtown with friends, to have lunches and dinners, little parties, tête-à-têtes. Art is most important. Who is your favorite (artist)?

LIBRA
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  These are times of reconciliation, reunions, understanding leading to rapprochement, of kindness, consideration, and thoughtful and perceptive realizations that each of us (including you) is a character, everyone’s doing their very best and everyone’s on their Path toward a more enlightened way of being. Is there some sort of suffering or sadness in your life at this time? We will pray with you.

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You’re edgy, agitated, restive, restless with somewhat anxious feelings including a wanting to go anywhere that is not here. However, there’s nowhere to go. The planets are creating a stellium of impatience and over-sensitivity. All you can do is visit things from the past, people, events, ideas, work. It’s not easy and there are no quick answers. Who from the past needs to be contacted?

SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22-Dec. 20) Read Gemini, first and investigate the solari website. I suggest a financial investor and information on finances because most of the planets are influencing your money, finances and resources, seeking to transform how you’ve handled yourself in these areas. Are you generous or challenged to be generous? Do you maintain a budget and balance monetary ins and outs? What are your worries regarding money?

CAPRICORN
(Dec. 21-Jan. 20)  Every once in a while others truly notice us, offering compliments, recognition, praise for jobs well done, for our help, presence and nurturing. They notice the care we take with how we appear in the world. You may be asked to lead a function that magnetizes people to a group or endeavor you’re a part of. You’re the very best for this position. Radiate Goodwill.

AQUARIUS
(Jan. 21-Feb. 18)  Aquarians, after they’ve built their personality eventually begin to see outward, onto humanity and its needs. It is at this moment when they see humanity is suffering that Aquarians begin to seek to serve. It is perhaps that time for you—to help others, to see their needs, to offer support and resources, time and money, care and attention.

PISCES
(Feb.19-March 20) It’s important to be part of a group; not be isolated. You need a balance of being in retreat and being social. You sense such a depth both within and in others. Counteracting this is your ability to see how others serve and how “love underlies the happenings of the times and all events.” Love happens to be the nature of Pisces, too. You may not feel it, but it’s surrounding you.

Week of Festivals: Full Moon, Lantern Festival, Purim, Holi

It is a week of many different festivals along with a full moon, all occurring simultaneously. Thursday Chinese New Year celebrations end with the Lantern Festival (at full moon). Thursday is also the Pisces Solar festival (full moon), Purim (Jewish Festival) and Holi (Hindu New Year Festival). Sunday, March 8, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. The festival of Purim celebrates the freedom of the Hebrew people from the cruel Haman (a magistrate) seeking to destroy them. Esther, the Queen of Persia, who was secretly Jewish, saved her people from death. The sweet cookie hamentaschen celebrates this festival. Friday, March 6, is Holi, the Hindu Spring Festival celebrated after the March full moon. Bonfires are lit the night before, warding off evil. Holi, the Festival of Colors, is the most colorful festival in the world. It is also the Festival of Love—of Radha for Krishna (the blue-colored God). It is a spring festival with singing, dancing, carnivals, food and bhang, a drink made of cannabis leaves. Holi signifies good over evil, ridding oneself of past errors, ending conflicts through rapprochement (returning to each other). It is a day of forgiveness, including debts. Holi also marks the beginning of New Year. At the Pisces Solar festival we recite the seed thought, “We leave the Father’s home and, turning back, we save.” Great Teachers remain on Earth until all of humanity is enlightened. The New Group of World Servers is called to this task and sacrifice. Sacrifice (from the heart) is the first Law of the Soul, the heart of which is Love. This sacrifice saves the world.

When looking for a bottle of something to have with dinner, Gewürztraminer 2012 is not the first wine to come to mind. Given the popularity of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir—to name but a few—Gewürztraminer sits low on the totem pole.
