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.

We Can Rebuild You

A look back at how downtown Santa Cruz recovered from the 1989 earthquake

 

International Earth Day—Mother Earth Day

Every April 22, humanity celebrates International Mother Earth Day and Earth Day. As more than a billion people participate in Earth Day activities every year, Earth Day has become the world’s largest civic observance. The massive concern to build right relations between humanity and the living being we call Earth is evidence of humanity’s love of the Mother. In 2009, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed April 22 International Mother Earth Day, with a significant resolution affirming “the interdependence existing among human beings, other living species (the kingdoms—mineral, plant, animal and human) and the planet itself, the Earth which we all inhabit.” The Earth is our home. Celebrating Earth Day helps us define new emerging processes (economic, social, political) focused on the well-being of the kingdoms. Through these, humanity seeks to raise the quality of life, foster equality and begin to establish right relations with the Earth. We dedicate ourselves to bringing forth balance and a relationship of harmony with all of nature. Learn about planting a billion trees (the Canopy Project); participate in 1.5 billion acts of green. Disassociation (toward Earth) is no longer viable. We lose our connection to life itself. Participation is viable—an anchor, refuge and service for all of life on Earth. Visit earthday.org; harmonywithnatureun.org; and un.org/en/events/motherearthday for more information. From Farmers Almanac, “On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic of fresh air, contact with the soil, companionship with nature! Go barefooted. Walk through woods, find wildflowers and green moss. Remain outside, no matter the weather!” Nature, Earth’s most balanced kingdom, heals us. The New Group of World Servers is preparing for the May 3 Wesak Buddha Taurus solar festival. We prepare through asking for and offering forgiveness. Forgiveness purifies and like nature, heals.

If you could live in Santa Cruz in any era besides now, which would you choose?

Probably the ’70s, because Santa Cruz is such a fly-your-freak-flag place. That was when free love and hippiness was in vogue. Shane Reber, Santa Cruz, Caretaker

Sarah’s Vineyard of Gilroy is known for crafting fine wines—and one of my all-time favorites is its Chardonnay. But this time, its Viognier has my vote.
