Happy May!l!
 
Happy Spring!!!
 
Happy Birthday Taurus!!!!
 
The fifth month of the year bursts the boundaries of resurgence!  The earth turns green with the stars of early summer!!
 
 
Taurus the Heavenly Bull is comprised of stars named Coming or Ruling, The One Who Saves Mightily, The Head, The Traveler Who Comes to save, The Station of Who Comes To Save;  Savio, The Leader, Governor, Wounded, Slain, Center, The Heap (Pleiades), The Congregation (Hyades), Belonging to the Judge, Abundance, Foundation, The Center, The Turned Around.

The almost-summer sun rises as does the celestial River Eridanus.  Many consider the Nile its earthly counterpart.  The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The River;  The Flowing;  The Waters Going Forth.  

Those people and relationships born under these stars are deliberate, conservative, with unusually active minds and studious, forceful personalities.   

The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.

The almost-summer sun rises as does the celestial River Eridanus.  Many consider the Nile its earthly counterpart.  The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The River;  The Flowing;  The Waters Going Forth.  

Those people and relationships born under these stars are deliberate, conservative, with unusually active minds and studious, forceful personalities.   

With the moon in practical Virgo, and the sun in earth-friendly Taurus our decisions are right sound and round!  We can't get any more practical, analytical, and prudent than now!  What a workday!!
 
The moon basking in silvery, sweet Virgo, and we are analytical on details, fussy, worried over small stuff, and committed completely to the service of humanity.  It is in this sign that we can really shine!  Not the time for selfishness!  Special care must be taken of the digestive tract now, as this is at it's 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 have a gastric bypass now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as  fully, either.
 
What dreams!!  Vivid, huge, intense, full of beauty and hope!  We part from them slowly!  By 5 27 AM Pacific, 8 27 AM easten time, we compare what our world is with what it could be.  Just over an hour later, 6 38 AM Pacific, 9 38 AM eastern, we have heard the same from others, which inspires us to make a real change!!  Today is the day for it!
 
By 2 04 PM Pacific, 5 04 PM eastern time, we have thrown off the working world and set to the heart of our real life!  We will be all about socializing, exchanging visions, boosting the strength and beauty of each other, by 3 23 PM Pacific, 6 23 PM eastern time.
 
A big beginning for our weekend of remembering, resolving to do better!
 
At 9 22 PM Pacific, 12 22 AM eastern time Saturday morning,  the moon balances into Libra with the sun in Taurus, both ruled by charming, holistic Venus.  With the moon in Libra we are painstakingly fair and balanced, to the point of being unable to decide.  We definitely do not want to be alone, yet this is one of the best transits for study of words, the law, and mathematics.  Not the time for taking sides!  Special care must be taken of the lower back and kidneys now, as this is at it's 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 have a kidney stone
now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
 
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the west coast will get a sharp kick to the shin when it comes to the way we have been frittering away our inner values now.  Ouch!!
 
 
This Memorial Day weekend blooms as the rose!  Tuesday the 29th sees the full Rose Moon, just after Memorial Day, close to the June Moon of popular tune.  This will be one busy, action-packed, surprise-filled weekend! 
 
 
Monday is a holiday in the USA, making next week a 4 day work week, so we must keep in mind that we either work twice as fast or get nothing much done.
 
Mercury will follow the sun into Taurus on Sunday the 27 th, and we make good on all those promises we are speaking now. 

 We can expect a raucous June with more than one super surprise!!! 

Life is full of reasons to celebrate!!!


     The Christian Taurus knight is on quest for the True Cross, the Great Work, or the Holy Grail.  The Christian Taurus knight is out traversing the worlds, rescuing, slaying monsters, banishing evildoers, and salvaging treasures.  As a Taurus, this knight is enduring!  He will plod along, rush along, rage along, but he will get there, make no mistake!! He often takes his time about it, and does it his own way, at his own pace;  bank on him!!

     Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Taurus knight is A Leader of The Wounded, or The Slain,  of The Congregation;  he Belongs To The Judge;  he is at The Center of the Foundation. 
     

     The Pleiades and the Hyades lie in Taurus. 

 

     Taurean energy is that intense color, red-orange, often admired by the most successful people in the world.  

     Taureans are strong minded individuals, incredible at overcoming any hurdles. The most powerful of the earth signs, those born under it are very connected to earthly materials, concerned with earthly matters, at the forefront of earthly causes!

     The keynote of Taurus is 'I love!'.  The earthly journey is often to transmute the love of personal possessions into the self sacrificing service of protecting, preserving, and providing for earthly life..

     That intense orange-red energy is pivotal in learning to equally integrate both our physical and emotional bodies. Red is the energy of passion: orange is that of sensing abilities. This energy is found in blood oranges and coral gemstones.

     Juice of beetroots, carrots and red apples together for a real boost!






Our mindful orb of ideas, images, communication, grazes through Taurus.  We will be sure of our facts now, able to hit the bulls eye, and call the product of the other end for what it is.
 
 
The phantom moon Vulcan stirs the pot with the bulls tale!!  Ok, tail, if you will, but I say tales are tails and then some!
 

 





Venus, the Golden Girl of the cosmos, dances in Gemini, the dual sign of song, poetry, backbiting and chatter.  Our values now are expressed through our social interactions.  We can elevate our consciousness to the heights now, doubling our capacity to value, to love, to glorify!  
 
Or we can sink to squabbling.  It's all about us, Star Travelers, and how we handle the energy! 
 




We will feel a new surety and security regarding our path and the acts we take upon it as Mighty Mars, orb of action and confidence, exalts in Capricorn.  Everything we do when it comes to family, job, profession, or governance, will really count now!    
 





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 just after the 4th of  July, awakening old memories and reconnecting us with old times.   On July 10th we lurch forward!!

 

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.   

 

Saturn will turn direct on the 6th of September and we are back in the classroom!!

 

Pluto is currently keeping the demons in the dark, away from us, till the end of September.  Time for planning strategies to slay them!

 

 





The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, is on fire in Sagittarius!!  We are all about travelling, pilgrimage, even if it is in the astral.

 





Our spousal planette Juno splashes through Pisces, and the drama never stops, or even slows down.  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, is in her element in Gemini!  Blah blah yadda yadda yadda, and believe everything you hear!

 






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 sixth 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


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





The Future of A Christian Nation

Are we in fact a Christian nation again, as denied by one US President?  Our Christianity was then affirmed by another, one who is now under seige.  What is our destiny?  Is New York City actually Babylon??  Were we founded by Free Masons???

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.
