Saturn Square Pluto, Transformation Continues

RisaNewSAfter Saturday’s first full moon of 2010, (10 degrees Aquarius/Leo) the second Saturn square Pluto occurs, Sunday, Jan. 31. This transit creates a continual series of changes and transformations that, by the 2012 winter solstice, ends materialism as we have known it. Materialism (the involutionary cycle, Spirit into matter) has been a purposeful and needed developmental stage for humanity since our first protoplasmic presence on Earth 21 million years ago. This end of materialism the indigenous people have spoken of.

Within the breakdown phase (Shiva) a new creative effort is a complete reorganization of humanity’s endeavors. The United States is particularly vulnerable because she is to “lead humanity toward the Light.” And there are powerful forces attempting to block that spiritual task. Many ask, “What must we do now? How do we prepare?” First we must begin to ponder upon how to build new communities and life foundations, not based upon the past. For all of us the first step is the intention for purification (of purpose, actions, thinking, relating, etc.) leading to revelation leading to understanding leading to revolution. Eventually we understand that, together, we are the ones who must build the new civilization. The changes we are experiencing are the evolutionary forces within us (humanity and the Earth) being activated.The destruction phase continues till 2012. The realized creation phase begins 2012, winter solstice.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jan 28–Feb 3, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

Aries March 21–April 20
Experiences and thoughts, dreams and visions are beginning to define you. It’s as if your visions make up your daily reality. You are being called to study and research, discover, create and/or find groups that belong to you, create a template for community, and negotiate fear because you know it’s no longer your partner. Wisdom’s coming. It would be good to study astrology.

Tarus April 21–May 21
Your future is being placed in front of you. It’s asking you to create a large portion of everyone else’s future, asking you to lead with others in partnership and create the visions others will uphold and bring into form and matter. Careful if you carry too many illusions or a Pollyanna-ish idea of reality. Take care of your health. Do you need someone by your side? Call them.

Gemini May 22–June 20
You might need (want) to return to school, learn another profession, travel far away and/or ask for an expanded job description. It seems as if you’ll travel to one or more communities in order to visit friends, assess living there and review their spiritual emphasis and orientation. Work is challenging and money may become more of an issue. Judge its (your, their) worth carefully.


Cancer
Nov 22–Dec 20
Great benefits, at first very subtly, begin to fall into your life. Later you realize a joy has quietly entered your life as if on little cat’s feet. You find your thinking is reshaping itself. Intuition, perception and visions become more and more available. Allow nothing to stress or impose demands upon you. Your fear could do this. Love neutralizes fear.

Leo July 21–August 22
You become more and more aware that you’re working with powerful forces this week. They’re not only cosmic forces but people around you will be acting them out. This is an extraordinary piece of information … to know that people in our environments act out planetary motion. Observe all work realities this especially this week. Remember also that from loss comes profound new life.

Virgo August 23–September 22
Take hold of the family’s resources and begin to restructure them, making changes, rearranging all financial comings and goings. Place more into savings; use the money for tangible goods. Use it also to prepare for the future when goods may not be as available. Who in your daily life, including your work world, would you consider your community? If no one, then begin developing one.

Libra September 23–October 22
Some shift and/or transformation in your domestic world are creating changes in your self-identity. Perhaps there is an illness or a death (physically, emotionally, mentally) that is creating more discipline in your life. Perhaps there is a distance or a withholding or an absence or a task needing to be completed that will bring depth of feeling to your personal world. Think good fortune.

Scorpio October 23–November 21
The message for you and your personal seed thought is “creativity.” I suggest you study this word from all levels, and then list for yourself all the ways you are creative. Then list all the ways you wish you were creative. Then list all those you think are creative. Then define the word creative. From these exercises create an art piece that is an expression of your joys and sorrows, enjoyments, talents and abilities.

Sagittarius November 22–December 20
Everything about you now is very personal, very inner, and the nature of your potential opens in direct relation to your spiritual endeavors. Everything domestic is very, very good. And if you think not, then make it so through gratitude (for everything), which then brings upon you blessings and grace. Grace is an esoteric word for Initiation, a change in consciousness, which you’re going through. You laugh.

Capricorn December 21–January 20
You’re inspired to study family and relatives seeking your history so you can have a realistic (building to compassionate) view of where you came from and who you are. This gives you stability and a sense of self within a cycle of history. There can be great misunderstanding in communication, a cross between idealism and freedom. However, the reality somehow got lost. And you, too.

Aquarius January 21–February 18
Take tender care with your personal resources, with what you consider of value. Realize that things in matter, although they have monetary value, are not the same as people with feelings, hopes and needs. Try not to overspend, don’t loan money to friends, know there are financial benefits coming your way. Also realize when you help others, your well-being and self-identity grow exponentially.

Pisces February 19–March 20
You will day by day begin to experience a greater freedom of identity, much of which had been lost in a cloud of unknowing for the past several years. You will experience a new destiny, a celebration, a bit of self-indulgence, horizons widening, opportunities appearing and expanding, projects initiated and the arts (call to them!) incorporated in your daily life. You had almost given up.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
