Weekend of 21 & 22 January 2017
 
An icy winter sun sparkles from the Top of the zodiac, Capricorn, the sign of genuine alchemy!!  What a moment of transition we have witnessed, fellow Star Travelers, even as we gaze upon the inky black skies and wonder at the diamonds dwelling there!!  How much more splendid will the real thing be, when we finally arrive there!  In the meantime, we really appreciate the beauty, vastness, and unique position of our pale blue home!
 
While the sun transits the star sign of Capricorn, we see what is no longer valid in the world just dying and falling away, collapsing into the vast sea of transformation.  The Sea Goat is such an odd sign, one that makes no sense as goats don't live in the sea, or ride the waves, while fish don't usually rise up from the bottom.  The goat half of the sign is falling in death, while the fish half of him rises in excited life!!  We have seen this in real life now, in our living world, and we know it is the Lords work and it is marvelous in our eyes!
 
While transiting Capricorn, our daystar highlights our connection to our family circle, our traditions and blood ties.  Our ethics and our roots become vital and rise with us, along with the best of our identity, our posterity!!   We ride the tail end of the Arrow, Sagitta, the minor constellation forming the backdrop of the elliptic, till the 25th.  The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is
one of The Arrow, The Destroying, and The Enemy.  Those people and relationships born under the stars of The Arrow are stable, enduring, tenacious, and ambitious, concrete and thrifty.  The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 
 
 
A charming, elegant Libra moon has us in the most sociable frame of mind now,  especially with family, till late afternoon Saturday.  We may spend the morning immersed in family concerns, bonding and feeling the harmony, especially on the east coast.  By 10 15 AM Pacific, 1 15 PM eastern time, we have a moment of real healing!
 
The moon delves into Scorpio at 4 35 PM Pacific time Saturday eve, and we discover many treasures welling up from the past, our own memories and timely reminders found in odd places.  
 
Sunday dawns early, full of renewed hope and great joyfulness.  We feel good again, especially at 8 30 AM Pacific, 11 30 AM eastern!  Services will fly by!
 
Monday is a thrice charmed day, to which we can eagerly anticipate for work and solutions!
 
Heavens plan for tomorrow is brought to you by www.ChristianAstrology.biz!

Keep calm and pray on!!




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


Matthew 15: 26 "His master replied, ĎYou wicked, lazy servant!!  27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

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."  


He was even called a glutton, a drunkard and a friend of riff-raff (Mt 11:18-19; Lk 7:33- 36).   Jesus entered into joyful celebration with "sinners, taxcollectors, prostitutes and the rabble."

In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus positively described a lavish feast (Lk 15:22-
23).  

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.


One of our commandments is to refrain from envy and covetousness, to be content with what Gods provisions for us.  This includes talents, looks, aptitudes, and family background.   All we have been given is a blessing!!  We are not to be ashamed of Gods work or to gainsay His decisions. Psalm 49: 16-17; Exodus 20:17


We are to be content in whatever state we find ourselves, resting in  the LORD JESUS CHRIST Philippians 4:11 Interestingly, Paul wrote these words while in jail!


Let's consider the things which we know from experience money can not buy:

 Wisdom Proverbs 16:16
 A righteous life. Proverbs 28:6; Proverbs 16:8; Psalm 37:16
 A good night's sleep. Ecclesiastes 5:12 
Gods own word. Psalm 119:14, 72, 127
Good health. Luke 8:43
Peace and quiet Ecclesiastes 4:6; Proverbs 15:16; 17:1

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




Our Money

     I did warn you; but things are really looking up.

     I began my warnings as soon as Saturn, the planet of NO!!! went into the markets' sensitive fifth house of Scorpio.  The fifth house rules all speculation.  It should be screamingly obvious that we aren't going to progress till the old Iron Giant is out of the picture here!

    Scorpio itself has close connections with our most intimate feelings, our depths, and this applies to our feelings and depths regarding finances too.  Most of us have a love/hate relationship with money, and with the idea of gaining it through speculation.  Some of us dance this way with food, too, evinced by the pro-anas among us as equally a Scorpio connection (control and purge).  If we haven't been minding our healthy vibrations and attitudes, we sure took a purge!

     Mars is in Aquarius, where he gets excited ideas.

     Let's be wise, and stay out of the fray till February 5th 2017.  The Lord of the Rings will finally move into Sagittarius, calming the turmoil and squashing the unrest from overseas, from foreign markets and from unnecessary and unlawful laws.

     Another of the major factors of which we must be carefully cognizant is Pluto in Sagittarius, in the sixth house of everyday every day, of employees, of open enemies.  Pluto brings out our zits and boils them to a head, which is necessary for cleanliness and health, and which really hurts and looks disgusting.  Sagittarius is the law and The Law, all thing foreign and foreign to us, and religion, and journeys.  I think you can see what the real root of the matter is here!  Brexit was ordained in the world, and while it hurts right now, it is the lancing of a long stagnant boil.

     Uranus, the wildcard of the zodiac, who goes KA-BOOM! when we least expect it, is sitting at the very top of the markets chart, the House of Glory.  In Pisces, the electric blue orb will stir our emotions, our artistry, our extremes.  Well it sure has!  Right now, Uranus sits at the karmic 29th degree of the Karmic sign of sacrifice. 

    Mercury is in Sagittarius, about to retrograde.  We may have more concern about flights of fancy than real plans!

    Transiting Jupiter is in Virgo, where we sense our way forward..

    Venus is in Capricorn, tradition!!!

    The sun in Scorpio, a fortunate sign for finances.





The Future of A Christian Nation

Are we in fact a Christian nation, as denied by a US President?  What is our destiny?  Is New York City actually Babylon??  

      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.
