The sun tilts at 26 degrees of sidereal Libra as we slide toward the dark side of the year. Autumn in it's last stage sees the stars bright as jewels and the skies cloudless and clear as can be! Winter holds a poignant beauty!
A sober Capricorn moon has us in workmode!
Let's be more careful with our joints, skin, teeth, bones, and hair. Our kidneys are vulnerable.
A day of no surprises!! It's a surprise that we already had this kind of day last week, last Tuesday in fact, and here we are again!
The morning brings healing, healthful energies to us and we really enjoy breakfast with family or coworkers. By 7 06 AM eastern, 4 06 AM Pacific, we are in the most helpful frame of mind!
The morning rushes by and we sail through it! We find what we were expecting by 7 13 AM Pacific, 10 13 AM eastern time.
Our mood expands and floods our environs with good will by 10 05 AM Pacific, 1 05 PM eastern. A great day!!
Tomorrow, we can expect good reports!
Venus is about to turn direct!!! Friday at 2 51 AM Pacific, 5 51 AM eastern, we see the world as brightly shining and sweet as it is. As Venus blesses us again, Mercury goes retrograde, and no one really understands how glad we are about it all. We have till 5 33 PM Pacific, 8 33 PM eatern time, to voice our joy in words.
Mercury, our orb of communication, slinks through Scorpio, making us naturally cautious, a bit snoopy, and inclined toward doubt.
The orb itself will turn backward in Scorpio on the 16th of November till December 6th. We have time to dig in our own dirt, air our own secrets, shed light into our own souls, then!
That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occasions, Vulcan, inculcates real wisdom now as it passes closest to the sun.
The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, sits in her autumn home, Libra, all gold and grace and great dinner parties, in a state of reconsideration. Our tastes have never been more genteel or elegant, but we find ourselves wanting to improve, to focus, to increase what is good and recycle what is not. What a gift of time!
Now is a great time to keep steady on our appearance, our funds, our current possessions. We may be tempted to splurge on the dramatic and new and original, but we may find we will hate it next month.
This is a splendid window to research the history of social grace, etiquette, civil exchange!!
Spending time with our current friends, pals, loves and pets will increase our joy!
We feel a new surety and security
regarding our path and the acts we take upon it as Mighty Mars, orb of action and confidence, is whirling in organized, forward-thinking Capricorn where he is exalted, powerful, in charge! Completely certain of himself and his aims, he fills us with that same surety. What we do now, when it comes to family, job, profession, or governance, can really make a profound difference not only to us and our family, our corporate entity, but for everyone!!
starts to give off a strange oder... in Scorpio, Jupiter unearths ancient scandals, shedding light on the dross. The smell will reach high heaven!
What a year we have ahead!
Timetables, class schedules, business meeting plans
Saturn rides through sidereal Sagittarius, pointing us in the right direction when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.
At his best, Saturn can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand.
Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching. We will discover this in 2018!
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries the Spring Lamb. Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!! As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Our dreams of the future,
are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealism and music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. This inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.
Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoning ability a bit cold. A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there.
Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him!
With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto is currently keeping the demons in the dark, away from us, till the end of September. Time for planning strategies to slay them!
With 5 planets retrograde, we are wise to rethink and redo, rather than forge ahead!!
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, shoots through Sagittarius, and we have visitors, company, and knocks on the door.
Our spousal planette Juno sits suave and persuasive in Taurus, where she is actually happy for once!! Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed, so let's take advantage!!
Splashing in Pisces is the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde now to go back and fix what needs work on our inner emotional issues with real success when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, roars in Leo, and it's all about family now.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, travels through the sign of the celestial Gardener, Virgo. Guess what we will be doing, and taking pride in the results!
This marks the tenth complete lunation for this year.
Jesus' Teachings on Money
One of the most corrosive quandries we face as American Christians today is that of the, and it's erroneous teachings about money and our attitude toward capitalism. Jesus Himself was a capitalist.
The witness of His Own Words provides us with the right attitude on material possessions and our righteous atttitude toward them. Jesus taught us in story form, anecdotes, or infomercials, so that we might have an ear of understanding. These stories have more than one level on which we can access His reasoning. In these passages, Jesus didn't advocate usuery; He praised a money lender for his work nonetheless. If Jesus did not approve, He would not have liken our own best behavior to that of a good and faithful servant.
Luke 19:23 Why then didnít you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?í
For the Scripture says, "You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain." And in another place, "Those who work deserve their pay!" I Timothy 5:17-18.
3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
Even He, the Lord of Lords, was accompanied by a group of wealthy women who provided for Him materially. Luke 8: I-3; JohnThe emergent church and it's communist overtones chooses to ignore these passages because these words do not suit their agenda, just like the Whore of the Many Waters, who only tells part of the story.
Many godly Bible characters were wealthy.
Solomon was the wealthiest man in history; yet observe his conclusion of this matter. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
Job was the wealthiest man of his day (Job I: 3) yet when all his wealth was gone, observe his attitude. Job 1:20-22
We do not please God by being poor; our relationship with Him is the important part of life. It is not measured by either abundance or absence of material goods. Nowhere in the Bible does God or Jesus specifically condemn anyone simply for having or not having money. He always deals with their heart attitude.
Jesus Himself not only participated in festive occasions which included eating and drinking with others (Mt 9:10-11; Mk 2:15), there are times when He hosted parties. Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana, he didnít chastise the family for having an expensive feast. Nor did he say, "Just drink water and save your money for the poor."
In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus positively described a lavish feast (Lk 15:22-
The Gospels repeatedly record Jesus giving thanks for food (i.e., Mt 14:19; 27:26-27). As the perfect Man, Jesus exemplified grateful enjoyment for Godís bountiful gifts. He demonstrated that "the religion of gratitude cannot mislead us" (Wordsworth). Genuine gratitude and enjoyment can coexist with a sacrificial, generous determination to relieve the suffering of others. (The Apostle Paul echoes this theme in 1 Cor 10:30 and 1 Tim 6:17-18).
The Bible does NOT say that money is the root of all evil, It says... "the LOVE of money is the root of all evil... " I Timothy 6:10.
Wisdom Proverbs 16:16
Matthew 6: 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
1 Timothy 5:8New International Version (NIV)
8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.I Timothy 5:8.
In 3 John 1:2, John, His beloved disciples, says to us Christians, "Beloved, I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
A message to the emergent church from Christ Jesus: Proverbs 11: 1, "A false balance is abomination to the Lord...".Luke 19 12 27
