The New Group of World Servers

RisaNewSDaylight Savings Time begins Sunday morning, 2 am, Monday is Pisces new moon (25 degrees), and St. Patrick’s Day is Wednesday. We’re less than two weeks from Spring equinox. However, I hear in Tennessee the robins have returned so they think it’s already spring. Every month esoteric groups worldwide observe new and full moon times with prayer and meditation. They invoke (call forth) and receive the concentrated light (Pisces this month) from the Sun and moon and radiate that light into the world (into humanity and earth’s kingdoms). The new moon theme is always to “Strengthen the hands (work, activities, intentions, resources) of the New Group of World Servers (NGWS)” –men and women of Goodwill working for equality of opportunity, justice, inclusiveness and right relations for all of humanity. Many work unrecognized. Their intention is to meet the needs of humanity and all living creatures through understanding the inter-relationships (Life Principle, Monad) existing among all kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human, Soul, Hierarchy, Shamballa). The NGWS functions worldwide and in every field of endeavor and everyone is invited to join. During new and full moon times, the energy of Love, Light, Will, Wisdom and Intelligence are available for distribution. It is the task of the NGWS, in service during these times, to receive and radiate these energies, translated as Goodwill, to Earth. Through the radiations of Goodwill life itself is uplifted. It is Goodwill that produces the needed Right Relations creating what humanity longs for—Peace on Earth. The new and full moon rituals (ritual, Ray 7, anchors spiritual energies) form the foundation for the new world religion in the Aquarian Age. During Pisces we discuss these things as we prepare for the initiating and fiery new life of Aries.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Mar 11–Mar 17, 20 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Often your compassion/sympathy is well hidden that many think you don’t possess these virtues. You do, however it takes tremendous effort to bring these forth (which will occur this month). No longer can you draw the curtain on spiritual realities. No longer will we think you don’t have tender feelings. No longer can you believe they interfere with daily life. Feelings and spiritual realities are actually guideposts and your protective lucky charms.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
It’s important to begin assessing goals, hopes and wishes for the future. As you do this, others are reaching out to you from groups and organizations asking for your professional sense, understanding and direction. Nurturing and strengthening ties within your group is a task only you can do at this time. The group needs nurturing. Can you step into these shoes?

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
There’s a continued assessment concerning your work in the world and how you’re recognized. A new vitality emerges concerning your labors and how you see your potential coming forth. Why not make a list of everything you can do. Then list all that you hope to do and then how you hope to serve others. These lists point out a theme that creates deeper self-identity. How do you want to be remembered? And what do you idealize?

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
When I graduated I was asked by my professor to write a paper on altruism. That word has appeared in my life in the most unexpected times and places. I would suggest you research and write a short paper on altruism. It’s responsible for creating new philosophical ideas, attitudes and visions in your life from now on. Your mind is traveling far distances. Perhaps to the Wesak Valley in the Himalayas.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You will be thinking of new endeavors, challenges, and how to best use resources. Notice intuition and perception are very strong at this time. If you tune in quietly within you’ll know who is thinking of and loving you. Concern about resources continues. However, in the long run this concern will evaporate. Did you expect something that didn’t occur? Is there disappointment?

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Are you being diplomatic, re-defining relationships and sharing more? Someone significant is either in need or you need them. Do you feel there is a lack of support? If so, begin to support others and that which you give is returned. Be truly gracious. Don’t put on an act or act in a way that you think you should. Learn how to be authentically gracious. It has to do with the heart.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
It will be time this week to get down to business, be practical each moment and establish routines that will handle the detail of a great change occurring in your life. Attempt to work with enthusiasm, summon efficiency and organization, ask for assistance (from humans and angels), eliminate everything not needed and make health and well-being your priority.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
You need some just-for-fun endeavors, things playful yet intense. You also need something calling forth your creative gifts. Only when creativity is involved are you truly pleased as you consider your impact on the world. This allows you to be brave and bold and always rebuilding your self-identity and confidence. You’ll express yourself this week and next and all the weeks thereafter.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Are you paying attention to what your feelings and intuitions are telling you? Are you assessing what you consider as safety and security? Are you stirring up activity at home, leaving home, seeking home, or needing a home? What are your support systems? Everything that leads to re-organization is or will be occurring. Family is involved, too. How?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
If you’re feeling frustrated concerning creative endeavors, children, loved ones and intimates, this will pass. You could feel the need to be highly creative to offset disappointments. You dream of things so significant they have a hard time manifesting. Over time they actually will. You might be sacrificing for your children and feel confused. Express your feelings in a neutral tone. Ask everyone to listen without judgment.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Ease in public and social situations is felt this month. Tend carefully and with detail to daily life tasks. When you’re at ease with yourself a rapport with others develops spontaneously. Walk through neighborhoods, stroll down the middle of town, make phone calls, tend to bills and monetary responsibilities, be alert, gracious and communicative. And realize with gratitude all that you value surrounds and serves you.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You’re wondering how to look and express yourself differently as well as define and present your authenticity. It’s important for you to be both strong and kind, to seek understanding and harmony with others and for your actions to be understood and not misinterpreted. Often you dream your way through life. You long to learn self- confidence and self-realization. Over time this occurs. Be brave.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.
