Final Journey of the Magi

RisaNewS

The week begins with Aquarius moon (Thursday morning). Appropriate for continuing the astrological Twelve Days of Christmas. The foundational knowledge in the Aquarian Age is the study of astrology, which leads to a clearer understanding of one another.

The last five signs (and sensitive body parts), Jan. 2 to 6, ending on Epiphany in Pisces (sign of saving the world).

Jan. 2—Scorpio/generative organs.

Jan. 3—Sagittarius/thighs, liver, hips.

Jan. 4—Capricorn/bones, knees.

Jan. 5—Aquarius/ankles, calves, Achilles heel.

Jan. 6 (Epiphany)—Pisces, feet, the immune system.

Epiphany is Greek for “appearance, new light in the world).” Each sign contributes to Epiphany, journey of the Three Magi Kings following a bright star (Sirius), discovering the prophesied holy child (born of a Virgo the sign in the midheavens) in a manger (humility), in Bethlehem (City of Bread), intersecting East and West (Messiah for the world). They offered Him gifts—gold, frankincense, myrrh—signifying royal birth. Each gift an aspect of the Holy Child (royal, divine, mortal) and the mission He was to perform for the world. The discovery of this child initiated the beginning of the new age (Pisces).

Today, in our world crisis, as one age ends (Pisces) and the other begins (Aquarius), Epiphany is ever more relevant. Humanity represents the “Three Magi Kings” at the cusp of the new world, awaiting the Aquarian World Teacher. The Ageless Wisdom says, “He will come in the air.” The New Group of World Servers are His forerunners, the Ageless Wisdom (astrology its foundation) His Teachings.

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You will assess and reassess your professional life and work in the world. Be sure not to do less than is expected. Pay attention and complete all tasks. This isn’t your greatest strength but it’s important now that projects be on time, that negotiations go smoothly, that you do your very best and more the next several months. Review goals. Do you like your work? Are you challenged? Are you dutiful? These are important questions.


taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
Venus is your guardian angel (also Gemini’s, Capricorn and Pisces). But Venus likes you best. Ssshhh, don’t tell! On your mind are faraway places, visions and dreams, higher learning, teaching and creating realities altogether new. Consider how your values and beliefs affect your relationships. Do they help or hinder? Do they include others’ thoughts, ideas and needs?



geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You will be concerned with resources and sharing feelings. Nothing about this Venus retrograde is light for you. Love will call you to be kind and patient. To be honest about finances, resources, desires, intimacy and relationships. Are you studying the mysteries yet? At some point you will commit to this. Then your life will change. You may look back for a while, remembering things.



cancerCancer June 21–July 20
Many people passed your way and left an indelible mark on your heart. You will remember relationships, past and present, assessing their goodness, value, what you learned, gave and received. All relationships help us learn how to be in them. Then one day we’re ready and the real relationship comes along. Your practicality creates a solid foundation of trust.


leoLeo July 21–August 22
Evaluating daily tasks you ask are they effective and efficient? Increase technical work skills that affect work routines. Expect challenges in communicating and understanding due to Venus retrograde. Notice if animals begin to feel unease, agitated or become ill. You too, must look after your health. Go slower than usual, know that resting is good and all that happened in


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Creating a winter garden, beginning a creative project, visiting museums and galleries, choosing to be playful instead of serious, remembering generous moments from the past, reconnecting with loved one – these and more are part of your life the next several months. They’ve have already begun actually. Consider changing the way you ask for affection. Expressing it more is one way.


libraLibra September 23–October 22
You will experience an interesting state of insulation the next several months. You will ponder upon many things – the state of your home, the foundations of your life, your parents, especially mother. You’re both mental and sentimental. As you sustain and nourish others you’ll need to hide away, hibernate with warmth and comfort. Tranquility will be your aim. Forgiveness the outcome.


scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
Your mind expands exponentially through study, training, travel, culture and the mysteries. One study particularly important is the Electric Universe. It seems our present scientific systems are all wrong. Gravity isn’t holding us together. Electricity is. Studying this subject of the electrical universe places you on the very edge of the new reality. Continue to visualize your dream/vision. It comes quietly on little cat’s feet.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
Feelings of nobility within solitude appear the first months of the New Year. You’ve been mentally active, engaged, diligent and industrious for so long. This is the year to settle down, learn to have late afternoon tea, for deep friendships of trust, and to assess resources slowly and cautiously with gratitude. An internal orientation eventually rebalances your energy, helps organize your future. You will see goals clearly—and visualize.


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
For the first several months you feel restless, realizing something’s changing foundationally in your life, your self-identity, your usual ways of being. You will experience your usual winter identity as Persephone (females and males) underground with Pluto. You’re deeply internal. Continue eating the pomegranates. They keep you alive. Spring does come.


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
There are four rulers of Aquarius. The dour strict rule-oriented Saturn (old ruler) who criticizes a lot. The revolutionary Tesla-like newbie Uranus creating the Aquarian Age. The loving wise teacher, Jupiter. And the lightning-like revelatory Uranus (again). Which would you like to be? Knowing the rulers of each sign and what their task is allows us to assume different identities. Blending Uranus and Jupiter is good.

 
piscesPisces February 19–March 20
Be caring and kind to everyone. Have as your new year’s intention to bring harmony to all relationships and interactions. Have this as a goal. You may reconnect with past friends and lovers. There are several you would like to see, talk with, create new friendships with. This may or may not happen. Many are on another path. Be generous, helping those in need. Everyone is in need of something. Discover it. Offer it. Love more.

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.
