Love/Wisdom, Ray 2, Streams to Earth

RisaBoth Venus and Mars are in Gemini, sign of duality. If we observe our lives we will see duality come to life. Venus and Mars are also the lovers Psyche (feminine) & Eros (masculine). Gemini’s energy, although dual at first (the two parallel lines indicating two realities, also the World Trade Center buildings) thus always providing humanity with choice, eventually synthesizes as the two lines (brothers) form a triangle with love at the apex. This is the secret of Gemini energy, people, events, times and a certain area in each of our astrology charts.

We are now in the month and sign of Leo. Leo (and Rays 1 & 5) flows through the Sun, absorbs the heart of the Sun (Ray 2, Jupiter) and streams into Earth and her kingdoms. Love comes directly into our hearts and minds. Combining the inner esoteric influences (Love/Wisdom, Ray 2) of Leo and Gemini (Ray 2) this month, we see that great amounts of Love/Wisdom are penetrating the Earth providing us with a great opportunity to radiate Goodwill, the primary component needed for peace on Earth (allowing the Christ to reappear as the Aquarian Teacher). Thursdays are dedicated to the Reappearance Meditation/Invocation. (Read more at nightlightnews.com.)


ARIES (March 21-April 20) Do you feel as if you’re on a cross, divided intensely between four ways, standing in the middle wondering which paths to conquer next? There are some past issues that need tending and bring to a close before you will know how to proceed. They are being illumined for you now so look around, assess, ponder, pray and have the intention to complete all things unfinished. Then the next page of your life turns.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21) Keep going into the future even though many pressures pull you backward. The new realities must be brought forth and they are to be done through each of the signs. You being Taurus have the illumination needed for others to understand just what plans and purposes the future will bring. You have a model to construct, things to build, expansions to bring forth so that others will be saved. The God of the waters will help.

GEMINI (May 22-June 20) Truly you are experiencing much duality; a confusing here and there-ness unless you don’t stand directly center. Why do this? So you can see both sides, so you don’t choose yet (observe instead), so you can understand how to create triangle of synthesis. There are two paths outlined for you, yes? Choice and knowledge of which path is revealed through revelation (through symbols). Ponder upon, draw and visualize these – the seven pointed, six pointed, five pointed stars, a triangle and the Cross. More next week.

CANCER (June 21-July 20) A duality is being presented to you in terms of your religious or spiritual practices. Perhaps there’s a fusion occurring between what you were taught and what you know or seek now. Are money concerns of concern? Past practices must give way to new banking practices. Is your communication sharp, harsh, possibly critical? Careful. You may not realize your tone of impatience. The homeopath Aconite neutralizes impatience (an excess of electrical energy). Stay out of rainstorms.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 22) Tend carefully to finances; ask for assistance if puzzled, embrace the future by banking locally and investing money in tangibles and goods that will sustain you for two years. Plan on others joining you. Remember the animals and their needs, too. Past memories may appear. It’s good to ask, “Did I love enough?” If not, there’s still time. A group offers two suggestions. Relationships fall sideways.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There may be some ongoing self-criticism and your heartaches with these beliefs. It’s important to know these critical thoughts are not true. They’re simply old remnants from childhood. It’s good to turn toward words of praise creating a journal of true identity focusing upon self-praising while identifying gifts and abilities. This neutralizes mental and emotional illusions and distortions. Chiron, Neptune & Jupiter are attempting to purify all maya.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Something profound, transformative, different and new will occur to your home situation or perhaps it’s the foundations from which you live your life where the changes will occur. By autumn you’ll know what these are. In the meantime so much has shifted about with work and your professional life. Are you feeling somewhat out to sea? Are you doing what you love to do? Do you know what this is? Are you thinking about and able to travel? Tend with care and kindness to all relationships. They sustain, nourish and fortify you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) As your home life tumbles and bobs about here and there (expansion then wounding then a sense of dissolving) you could feel a bit of despair along with exhilaration. Both are occurring along with a shift of friends (are you feeling somewhat alone?) and new information coming in about work and your professional life. Tend to money carefully. No excess expenditures on baubles. Things in matter are disappearing quickly. Do you have emergency supplies?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) It’s time for something new in terms of relationships. It’s also time to travel somewhere you’ve been before to assess it with new eyes. Do be aware of how much work you’ve done, how hard and where you are today. In the next seven years your usual ways of thinking and interpreting will change into a profoundly new way of assessing the world. Your creativity alters too. Some of this is already occurring. As you hover forever at the razor’s edge, inch closer to the middle.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20)  Money. You stand between two themes. You have enough. You don’t have enough. In between is a wound. Perhaps you grew up with very little money or perhaps you grew up with enough to too much money. Either gave you a certain lens concerning money. But here we are today and all around us the monetary world as we’ve known it is collapsing. Don’t fret or be fearful. From the ashes emerge great opportunities. Ponder upon priorities considering the world situation. What must you do now? You’ll come to true answers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18)There is and will be a breaking away from your usual ways of being. What’s normal will be upside down for a while. This gives you time to assess who you are, what you value about yourself and how you would like to change. Increased social interactions lead to increased social successes. You are accomplishing life’s tasks on your own, in your own timing and rules. This is good. Finally you had the freedom to step into your dreams. Remain there.

PISCES (Feb.19-March 20)Things feel very complex. And so you’re in a state of solitude and all your expectations are surfacing, providing information previously not known. Clearly you see that disappointments and sadnesses, those that lead to despair, are/were based upon unrealized hopes, dreams and wishes. These were not incorrect. Now you are aware of them. What will you do next? This question isn’t answerable yet. Keep observing and defining yourself.

Mars Enters Scorpio: The Nine Tests

Over the years I’ve mentioned the nine tests of Mars and Scorpio. The tests are given to everyone—unawakened, beginning to awaken, and the awakened. The purpose is to test our strength, courage, ability to adapt, discriminate and have discernment. To see if we are deceived by illusion or are “warriors triumphant, emerging from the battle.”

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX
