Aquarius, Waters of Life

RisaNewSThe Sun is in Aquarius. The new Age is the Age of Aquarius. Humanity is Aquarius. The New Group of World Servers, at the threshold of each morning, stands together calling humanity’s Soul forth. Aquarius, the Water Bearer, “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity,” expresses the Soul of Humanity. The characteristics, qualities and nature of Aquarius (the Age of) leading humanity toward its collective purpose the next 2,000 years. Aquarius will color and impulse all activities, directing humanity to the Path of Return.

No matter what our individual Sun signs are, Aquarius, now and in future times, influences all peoples and events in our world. It’s therefore important to understand Aquarius and those born with Aquarius Sun, Rising, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Chiron. Two signs are important here—Aquarius and its shadow, Leo. One is learning how to identify and serve the self. The other serves humanity. Developmental stages, one follows the other. Leo “finds” the self through creativity. Then, turning, offers its talents to humanity. Aquarius is the “human group.” There's a great component of service in Aquarius. After serving the self (coming to know and develop the self), when awakened to the Soul, Aquarius serves the well-being of humanity and Earth’s kingdoms.

For Aquarius the entire world is their community. Here they present new archetypes. Aquarius (Star card in tarot) loves the world. From their fully opened heart, this love becomes the “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity.” All of humanity thirsts, seeking the waters leading to the Path of Return. Aquarius understands. And thus serves.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jan. 23–29, 2014 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You should be creating and/or attending gatherings with friends and groups of like-minded others. You have the ability, with a heart of kindness, to find common ground in groups with diverse interest. You are to create synthesis. It’s not good to feel isolated. And you could, at times. You want to form new alliances, create a circle of goodwill, new friendships that last well into the future. You need new currents of thought to think.


taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
You’re becoming known as an expert is some field of thought, enlightening many who depend upon you for intelligent conversations, new thought and information based on focused research. Even though you’re considered one of the most traditional signs, you’re also one of the most unusual. That’s because eventually Taurus receives their information from the Raincloud of Knowable Things. New directions keep precipitating.

geminiGemini May 22–June 20
An integration is occurring as your shadow side, Sagittarius, is highlighted this week and next. You’re on a quest for new knowledge, adventures, a new journey, explorations, new terrain. You’re seeking to have a global mind. There’s wonder in your eyes when you encounter the freedom arising from an intelligent well-thought-out mind. A new philosophy or science emerges. Perhaps it’s the Electric Universe you need to discover.

cancerCancer June 21–July 20
You often surprise others. When speaking it’s often from a deep intuition and instinct. It’s often profound. Your inner world is filled with leading edge thinking although you don’t consider it as such. To you, it’s simply the way you think. Healing becomes a major need and interest. Esoteric Healing is something you might consider studying. There’s something in your body in need of healing. It’s breaking free from the past.

leoLeo July 21–August 22
It’s seems new rules are coming forth regarding you and relationships. New ways of being, new archetypes. It’s time to play a bit with those new rules. What would they be? Something about freedom, celebration, merging, commitment, desire, romance. Creating bonds that last. Remembering and reflecting upon the past and realizing true love was there all along. You need a friend, a lover and a deeply beloved.


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Replenishing your energy, seeing health in a different way, experimenting with new levels and ways of healing and remove all things habitual in your life helps create out of the old needed new rhythms and rituals. Having more ease in your daily life is important. Things routine become difficult. Redo your work schedule. Make it unconventional. Which road will you choose when two are offered?

libraLibra September 23–October 22
You will feel you’ve returned to a previous creative self. For so long you created routine that produced safety and well-being. Actually you’d rather be avant-garde, an artist on the wild side, breaking all rules, encountering the unusual, being unconventional and unlikely. You know there are gardens to grow, photographs to take, pictures to paint, clothing to design, trees to plant. There’s generosity to offer and creativity to burst forth.

scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
Staying at home seems best these days, allowing the maximum freedom. It’s your place of refuge, your Ashram, your foundation, temple and sanctuary. Here you research, are illumined, have inspiration, meditation, contemplation. Here are your tools, music and place of creative thought. Self-determination and independence are major needs in your life. Without them there is no free will.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
You’ve become much more social. Mingling more and engaging in challenging, philosophical exchanges, creating new idea currents in minds of those who listen to you, read what you’ve written, need your company, cherish your friendship, and/or hang onto your every witty outrageous word. Something you feel needs to be updated. A new profile, newer identity, a new language? Something unusual.


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
You need freedom with your resources. And to you time is a resource. You can’t feel pushed or pulled into any situation not comfortable for you. You must make your own decisions, creating your own timetables, investigate your own ideas, releasing all that’s old and outdated making room for all that’s new. This will be a long process, so you must have patience. Whatever you love the very most, you must do. It’s where you will succeed.


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
Sometimes you need a fresh new look in the world, a new combination of style highlighting your unconventional ideas, thoughts and behaviors. Unconventional because Aquarius exemplifies the future, what hasn’t been seen or thought of before. You’re a friend to everyone (everyone thinks). But really they’re acquaintances mostly. One or two real friends. Because you’re original (some think odd, but only those who don’t understand).

 
piscesPisces February 19–March 20
You’ve been quite intuitive lately. These are impressions from another level of reality, other worlds. Often you can’t translate them into regular language. Sometimes they arrive so fast it’s difficult to integrate the messages. The doors of perception continually open for you in dreams, in nature, in water, during times of silence and repose, when the atmosphere is safe and guarded. Protect these moments. They provide you with a needed retreat.

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.
