Happy Birthday Aries!!!!!
The fourth month of the year blooms with new life and resurgence! The stars of spring crown the Lamb in the sky!
The names of the stars in the sign of the Spring Lamb itself include The Wounded, The Slain, The Bound, The Chief Exalted, Lifted Up, The Tip of the Triangle, The Dominion.
The decanate or sign behind the sign against which our sun rises this morning is Cassiopeia, the Queen Enthroned. Many of the wisest see this image as that of the earth Herself! The individual names for these stars are The Beautiful, The Delivered From All Evil; and The Boundary.
Those people and relationships born under these stars are impetuous, intelligent, independent, persevering, and assertive. The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.

The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for the weekend of 21 and 22 April 2018
The moon whirls in whirligig Gemini for a fun weekend of serious socializing. We may not sleep at all till Monday!!! We feel that urge to catch up, to make up for lost time! With the moon in Gemini we are loquacious, socially interactive, curious, and
mentally adroit. This is the moon when we need each other the most, and become capable of doing our most good for others- or the most harm. Not the time to take the low road and be the bad twin!! Special care must be taken of the shoulders and lungs, as these are at their most vulnerable at this transit. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get bronchitis now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
Saturday is full of charm, beauty, elegance! Our morning is graced with poetry, and by late afternoon, we are in love with life! We will get nothing accomplished that requires elbow grease, even in the garden. A great day for friends, conversation, idea exchange!
The moon comes Home to Cancer at 1 38 AM Pacific time Sunday morning, when he same gleam enchants the heavens, all charm and wonder! By midmorning the orb that causes care and intrigue takes its own vacation Elsewhere, and we just feel better!
Sunday we can't go wrong!
With the moon in Cancer and the sun in Aries, our attention is pointed and sharp. We miss nothing!! We note a ferociously protective attitude of the young in any form, be it our garden, our newest project, a child or distant cousin. We may find ourselves house cleaning with some energy, and inviting the neighborhood children to play in the yard. Our chief concerns are piety, filial obligations, and patriotism. Not the time to attend an anti-something rally!! Special care must be taken of the chest, breasts, and stomach, as these are at their most vulnerable at this transit. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get a breast augmentation now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
The Golden Girl of the cosmos has arrived in her spring home of green, growing, glowing Taurus, a glorious sign! This weekend is full of all good things of earth and heaven!
Life is worth celebrating!!!
As Christians under the light of an Aries sun, we explore the quest for the True Cross, the Great Work, or the Holy Grail.
The Christian Aries knight is out traversing the worlds, rescuing, slaying monsters, banishing evildoers, and salvaging treasures. As an Aries, this knight has no lack of enthusiasm, courage, confidence, liveliness, and physical joy! He loves the hardest, sharpest, most daunting challenge! He hopes above all that will involve some kind of physical sport!
Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Aries knight is bound to Bruise and Wound any Binding to what is less than noble, good, and pure. He is the Chief, The Exalted, and The Head, he is Lifted Up and Standing High.
As an Aries, this knight has no lack of enthusiasm, courage, confidence, liveliness, and physical joy! He loves the hardest, sharpest, most daunting challenge! He hopes above all that will involve some kind of physical sport!
The color or Aries energy is scarlet red!
The dynamic Aries possess an abundance of vitality, which, like true knights of Christ, they put to the defense of the weak.
Aries' keynote is activity! Aries manifests on the material plane all of their ambition, initiative, and creativeness while on the higher plane, they are spiritual, adventuring pioneers, searching for a better world for all mankind.
Unbalanced, Aries can be demanding, neglecting their emotional needs.
Red energy should be used to give physical strength and endurance.
This energy can be found in many foods; tomatoes, cranberries, beets and cherries.
Tiger's Eye or Red Jasper are the gemstones for this sign.
Inspiring oils which vibrate on a red frequency include ylang ylang, sandalwood and juniper.
Our focus of communicating ideas swims downstream through kindly, good natured Pisces, and we find enchantment in our own words. We wax lyrical and rhythmic even while on the phone. We can hear music in every little sound!!
This is a great time to explore and indulge our feelings, and investigate Art, art, crafts, colors, textures, mysteries!
The phantom moon Vulcan tickles our who identity concept now.
Venus, the Golden Girl of the cosmos, has arrived at her spring home of Taurus the glorious. The lovely Venus star graces earth and heaven with riches, values, graces uncountable. This is the perfect transit under which to launch anything of beauty and value!
Fidgety Mars exits Scorpio, lurking on the 29th karmic degree till Friday. Let's be very careful of our birth control, and all activities that involve recreation.
Mars takes flight in Sagittarius on the 9th of March, and spring will really spring! Mars in the restless sign of the traveler means we are on the move!
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now backtracking in Libra, sends us into the arms of old friends and ancient fads. Be prepared for retro big time!! This is a great time to indulge in shabby chic, engage in inane entertainments just for the relaxation. Sometimes we have to be silly in order to appreciate the elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming. What a year we have ahead!
Saturn is making a twist about in Sagittarius, turning our travel plans into a melee... on again and off again meetings, important in nature and scope, can frustrate us and we feel it most when it comes to dealing with the legal details. The old problem of school credits and transcripts pop up now, as the dour schoolteacher of the cosmos plays with his own ideas about Time.
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. We have until September to really study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live. If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire. Test the tester!! We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and permanently askew now, as we need to seriously consider the need for borders.
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.
Neptune, the orb of idealism and music, 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.
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 will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
Jupiter is retrograde till July, awakening old memories and reconnecting us with old times.
Saturn blocks his blocks now, turning around and changing his mind on important issues. Let's not get giddy when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, is on fire in Scorpio!! We are all about keeping the house warm.
Our spousal planette Juno bops through Aquarius, full of platonic connections. Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.
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, jumps the hoop in Aries big time! She uses this as a launch pad for making new friends and annoying old ones.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, resets everything at Home in Cancer, where she reconfigures, revitalizes, revisualizes, and revamps our kitchen, redecorates, and invites the whole neighborhood to her board.
This marks the fifth 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
The Future of A Christian Nation
Are we in fact a Christian nation again, as denied by one US President and affirmed by another? What is our destiny? Is New York City actually Babylon??
Follow to our page for comfort, light, and hope!! http://www.christianastrologers.com/TheFutureofAChristianNation.html
I prefer the Sibley birth chart for the United States, as opposed the more popular 2AM birth time; the Sibley chart reflects best the history and changes faced by the US through its lifetime. I also read in real time, thus am using sidereal astrology. This is the chart.
The chart reckoned by the tropical seasons is not so much different from the sidereal chart, only inasmuch as it is more detailed, and that detail is eerily accurate! Both charts indicate our national good humor and optimism, as well as our obsession with sports, especially if that sport involves horses! Sagittarius rising lets the world know that the USA is a natural cowboy, the icon that most often represents us at our best. A restless and freedom loving lot, we respect religion, education, and those who have traveled far in the world; we won't tolerate being ordered around or talked down to!
The sidereal chart shows us to have a Scorpio eagle rising, again, highly accurate for us and for our spiritual reality. The 20th degree of Scorpio fades into a Sagittarian first house, so there is little difference here, indeed, none to worry us!
With Pluto in the second house we know how to make do, make over, remake, and recycle; we are hardy pioneers who flourish despite the odds. With this placement we are a bit fixated on money, a little extravagant, and tend to make snap judgments, being quick minded and impatient. The natural nobility and promise of our Aquarian soul as represented by the moon at 5 degrees of this sign shines our from the third house of The Populace, or We The People. We desire freedom and liberty for all, whether or not they be our friends.
We love science and mathematics, big loud machines and anything shiny and fast, says our Uranus in the sixth house of Taurus; our versatility is proverbial, as is our eccentricity; we as a nation have real concern for the rest of the globe. Mars in Taurus lets everyone know we will defend what is ours. The sun in Gemini imbues us with that duality so noted by foreigners, and keen observers of American culture; we love what we love, and can put it away from us with an awful disassociation. We have the sun, Venus, and Jupiter all in a row in Gemini, in the seventh house of Others, proof that we as a nation have unexpected opportunity for exceptional service to others. Mercury in Cancer shows our patriotism, love of mom and apple pie big enough to be shared by everyone in the neighborhood, just like in Norman Rockwell's art.
Even our national reach for the medicine cabinet is here at the top of the chart with Neptune in detriment in Virgo. Strange dietary fads, our obsession with hygiene, and labor troubles emanate from here, as well as our spiritual faculties, for we are a spiritual people with visions and prophetic dreams.
Typically American, we have no planetary ruler; we are a nation of Laws, and those Laws have limits.
