Waters of Life Poured Forth for Thirsty Humanity

RisaNewSIn the coming weeks and months following Haiti’s tragic earthquake (for shame Limbaugh and Robertson), let us continue to respond to humanity’s suffering with prayers and monetary donations sent to the Red Cross, Catholic Charities, Care, International, etc. With the Sun in Aquarius, let us consciously be servers in Aquarius, the “Waters of Life Poured Forth For Thirsty Humanity.” These words esoterically define the Aquarius. They are the inner spiritual essence of the “water bearer.” The waters are the new energies falling to Earth soothing humanity. Aquarius is the eleventh sign after Aries. It is fixed air. Fixed signs stabilize ideas (created by the Cardinal Cross signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) in form and matter. Air signs (Gemini, Libra & Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information previously created and stabilized by the cardinal and fixed signs. For air signs, education and learning are most important.

Jupiter has left Aquarius and entered Pisces (till June). Jupiter is one of the rulers of Pisces. It is Ray 2 of Love/Wisdom. Jupiter in Pisces summons our compassion. In Aquarius Jupiter called us to serve humanity. In Pisces, Jupiter helps us save humanity. Note the different tasks in the two signs. In the aftermath of the Haitian tragedy, we are asked to both serve and save humanity. Each prepares us for the coming extraordinary times.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of January 21–27, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ARIES: You long to be free to pursue your usual pleasures and enjoyments. However ambition and success call and that requires Saturnian discipline and the completion of all tasks, something unusual and difficult for you. Where’s Taurus, you ask, the one who completes everything? Things silent, quiet and hidden increase around you. Imaginative ideas fill your mind. Something’s changing within you. It’s good.

TAURUS: You’re called to be in the spotlight, to leader and to organize. Perhaps you’re co-chairing a group, calling them to envision a future different than the past. This takes you into a new life-direction, defines you more completely, and highlights previously set goals. You’re now more than ready to accomplish those objectives. Remember to make it very big, very round and very stable with a pool.

GEMINI: Many new ideas have occurred to you, stimulating you to make changes concerning beliefs, friendships and ideas long held. Has communications been difficult, relationships a bit conflictual? Great things are in store for you in the coming months. Do take the time to listen quietly to your mind and heart, follow what inspires you and aim as high as you can. The Capricorn mountain calls.

CANCER: You will experience many expansive changes this month in terms of how and what you think, what your ideals and goals are and your knowledge of the world. You may seek these changes through travel, new books and contact with people of different cultures, one in particular. It would be good to ask if you are as sensitive as you can be with others. Sensitive meaning “acting from the heart”.

LEO: Many obligations will be met this month bordering on much too much work. However you are ethical and know from your creativity comes your sense of self- worth. Something comes to a crisis in the months leading up to June. It’s perhaps something that occurs to you in terms of how you’ve cared for (or didn’t) people, loved ones and relationships in the past in terms of valuing them and having (or not) loving understanding.

VIRGO: It’s good to revise any monetary situation that is becoming too much to handle. And to be very careful with finances on all levels. It’s also good to recognize the creativity you’re bringing into daily life, realizing that your expressions create your self-identity. For some, becoming pregnant will be your new identity with Pluto in your house of creation. Confidence precedes you in all relationships.

LIBRA: Things, people, events, ideas, even your profession may feel stopped or stalled, a feeling that nothing’s happening. The reality is everything’s going into deeper layers of review and reflection. All outer structures move slowly now. There’s a question about your home. Is something occurring there of profound depth and change? You will be helped along in the coming months by many who support and love you. You are learning.

SCORPIO: Professional situations edge sideways giving you opportunity and inclination to make changes in terms of how much time you are out in the world, what you are able to give the world, and what’s expected of you. A new depth of thinking begins and slowly and quietly new life paths appear. So many times this year you’ve wanted to hide. A new level of pleasure and gladness appear, new goals, too. But there are challenges.

SAGITTARIUS: Your values, what you value, you as valuable – these continue to shift yet deepen. I suggest no traveling till mid March at least. Everything can go wrong till then. Are financial things a bit unclear? And how is your home life? Something’s growing and expanding there. Either a new baby, a new place, redecoration or a feeling that a new foundation is needed. Everything increases in value. Think, gather, find, buy silver.

CAPRICORN: Things were going along smoothly (somewhat) and then your planet, Saturn, turned retrograde. This is good, however, for it allows Capricorns to assess what is of value to them. And to assess how they see themselves in the world and what persona they want to project. A transformation of self along with values will slowly unfold in the next six months. New learnings will take place. Perhaps a study group will emerge. Whenever conflicts arise seek the “love that truly underlies all events.”

AQUARIUS: It’s important to have time alone, in solitude and quiet for lengths of time so you can relax and rejuvenate. During this time it’s important to recognize the needs of others. When we look through this lens the entire world shifts. Perhaps you are reviewing past relationships and what part you played. Know that beginning now and for the next year or so, your money, finances, resources, values and all that you possess become important. Use your money very wisely. And praise those who have the courage of their convictions.

PISCES: A whole new world begins for Pisces this week. Jupiter in Pisces will create a greater life force, expanded energy, optimism and a fusion of heart and mind, from which wisdom will emerge. For long you’ve wanted to bring forth something in form and matter. Jupiter will assist in this creation. Jupiter provides abundance, blessing and beauty, strength of will, spiritual purpose and a demonstrated love that becomes Grace in the lives of others.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
