Weekend of 29 & 30 April 2017 
 
We get the names Saturday and Sunday from those respective luminaries.  Those of us who observe a Saturday Sabbath have a strong sense of tradition and family values, highlighting fair play.  Those of us who worship on Sunday seldom lose!  The name for April comes from the word 'to open', as the buds and the blooms this month.  As we open into May, we see the name for May comes from the hawthorn flower, which blooms this month.  These names are consistent with that of the force of nature which inspires expansive growth!!!  
 
Our daystar the sun lights up the stars of Aries, the Spring Lamb at 14 and 15 degrees, and we can see the results of the surge of spring on earth and in the heavens!  In a sudden rush of enthusiasm, our courage, confidence, liveliness, and physical joy skyrocket!  We can fully understand the reckless physical actions we see on the soccer field, as those of Peter grabbing a sword at the last minute last night. We eagerly welcome the hardest, sharpest, most daunting challenge!  We hope above all hope that our days will involve some kind of physical sport!
 
The names of the stars of Aries itself are Bound to Bruise and Wound any Binding (to what is less than noble, good, and pure), Chief, The Exalted, and The Head, He is Lifted Up and Standing High, The Wounded, The Slain, The Bound, The Chief Exalted, Lifted Up, The Tip of the Triangle, The Dominion.            

We see the sparkling stars of Cetus, the Whale, or Sea Monster, gleaming in the spring skies above sunrise today.  This huge leviathan is sometimes identified with Tiamat, the gargantuan serpent which gave up its body to form the solar system.  The individual names for these stars include The Rebel, the Overthrown, The Tale, and The Lord Has Ruled.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are fiery, romantic, determined, with hidden talents.  The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 

That celestial pearl of light which focuses our Hearts and Minds is of a dual nature, and, so close to us, highlights our weaknesses as well as our commitment to blessing.  Our moon grazes in Taurus with placid calm through Saturday morning.  With the moon in Taurus, we are at our most practical, even the least earthy of minds being more grounded.  We are apt to practice economy and as Taurus is ruled by charming Venus, we are sensitive to ambiance, preferring harmony and beauty.  We may go shopping after all, but with an eye to price, considering the best value for the money.  We are also at our most persuasive and most stubborn!  Not the time to spoil the ship for a pennys worth of tar!  Special care must be taken of the neck and throat, 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 whiplash now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.

This is the last of April, as glorious May begins on Monday!!  Now at 0 point of Aries is the Wild Card of the solar system, which is the frequent cause of uproar, insurgence, riot, revolution, or illumination of the mind and soul to ascendant levels.  Through the 11th of May, we can expect the unexpected, peaking with sudden explosions of courage, joyfulness, and terrific ideas!!  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!

It continues to be a most interesting time, as we will hear more unexpected words and ideas today.  These are of a better quality than Fridays news, but let's still be Listeners now!!  By 10 29 AM Pacific, 1 29 PM eastern, we hear of positive moves and trends, but we are not ready to move forward or act upon what we hear!  In just less than an hour, 11 13 AM Pacific, 2 13 PM eastern, a fresh surprise lands upon our waiting ears, which can't help our anxieties or apprehensions.  We may feel a little low, but we must recall this is a surrender to darkness, and encourage others by cheering ourselves.  This is an easy necessity!  

At 10 37 AM Pacific, the moon whirls into Gemini, and we may feel an absurd buoyancy, an upsurge for no good reason other than Gemini is a delightful sign.  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.

Along with the sun, the orb of communications combines with the planet that promises Surprises and Delivers them. Luckily, stalwart Saturn is trining the wild sky horse with steadying calm, turning his tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature, sober hand.  Though Saturns aspect to the moon may contribute to a low or dark mood, this can offset any giddiness engendered by the whirligig Twins.  Now is the time to pay attention to the eldest, wisest, and most noble of our friends and family with real regard for what they think, not just about us but about how things are shaping up in general.  With Mercury spinning back, we are in the catbird seat for extracting the wisdom from any lesson or situation without having to play the whole scene out.  Imagine, the benefit without the bumps and bruises!!  

This is the fifth lunation cycle of this year.

Sunday noon on the west coast, 3 20 PM eastern, finds us back in the drivers seat, full of Aries fire, and ready to take control of ourselves again.  Sunday always seems most restful!  By 5 26 PM Pacific, 8 26 PM eastern, we have a fine frame of mind for reexamining our weeks work.  It is very good!

Monday being May Day, we may expect those who attach deeply to the movement of the spheres to be a little agitated, unruly, or restless.  Those of us who ride the tides of heaven, without being swept along, will easily surf this wave also!  We can expect a bumpy day over which we exert sense, calm, and dignity.  

This weekend sees the heavens doing the accounting as far as our words and ideas are concerned. If we have had a rash moment, or spoken out of turn, or launched a project too soon, we have the opportunity now to retrieve, reboot, return favors.  Now through the 8th of May, the orb of communication sits at the karmic 29th degree of Pisces, the karmic sign.  What a second chance!!

Venus the Golden Girl spins direct in her place of glorification, to our benefit and our relief!  We are so much more at ease now regarding our social standing, sure at least of our financial ground even if its one small step.  The orb of grace is at the height of her power in Pisces, where she can freely express exquisite beauty in art, color, music, rhythm, in the subtle energy flows and in the grosser rivers of gold.  Venus retraces her steps through the sign of the Enchanted Fishes through the 1st of June, allowing us a spring season to unleash all the beauty within us into a sharable form! 

With Mars in verdant, earthy Taurus, ruled by charming Venus, we may really appreciate the finer and more organized sports, the ballet, dancing for sheer enjoyment.  We may notice the refreshing smells of the rich soil, the flowers in bloom, the crispness of fresh air!

Heaven is currently on vacation in the sign of Aries, the Spring Lamb, until Wednesday the 3rd at 9 33 AM Pacific, 12 33 PM eastern time.  With Mercury retrograde in Ares, we are wise to take an active part in this whirlwind, as the orb of communication will backtrack over everything we have thought, promised, said, entertained, or conceived for the last 3 weeks.  We have a second chance to look very carefully and painstakingly at all we have in our heads!  Mercury now spins back over the sensitive 29th degree of Pisces, into that slippery sign, till the 10th of May.  This time period is sensitive to promises made now and in the past, if these have been kept, and we would wisely observe this interchange with sobriety.  If we have some deep inner convictions to examine, or a feeling of lack within, this is our time for remedy.  Mercury returns to work on May 3rd, making for a wild ride for May Day!

The planet of NO!  I said NO!  That's Enough!!  is currently turned about in the sign of the Archer, Sagittarius, till August 28th at 5 08 AM Pacific time. As Sagittarius is all about Truth, Justice, and the American Way, we can expect a great deal to come tumbling out and down the timeframe.  We ourselves will wisely pay close attention to all that we hear, as this is a sensitive sign.  We may notice that the feeling of sadness or foreboding descends upon on in earnest now.  The perfect remedy for our plight is to take serious subjects and sober views now, eschewing any tendency toward prankishness or light heartedness for the time being.  This, too, shall quickly pass!

Let's keep in mind that the Santa Claus of the solar system is also on a long vacation, till June 9th of this year, 2017, in the sign of sidereal Virgo.  We get the opportunity now to go back and examine the details, the fine print, the extra costs of everything we have been doing as far as health care, our employment necessities budget, our gifts to others, especially those we work with or who may serve us in some way.  This is neither the time for ingratitude, nor being nip cheesy; this vacation is all about balancing our reality!!

Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us, is turned about retrograde now, in the sign of true blue Sagittarius till the 28th of September 2017.  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.

With Jupiter, the most Benefic of orbs retrograde, as is Mercury, along with the Malefics Saturn and Pluto, we can find our greatest strength and stamina in our own natal sun, or in the power of Aries!

The planettes can bring a measure of comfort to us also.  Ceres, the cook of the solar system, is in Taurus where she promotes healthful cuisine.  Pallas, our wise self and BFF, is in encouraging Pisces.  Our spousal Juno travels through Sagittarius while Vesta, keeping watch on the home fires, stays Home in Cancer.

Keep calm and pray on!!

The light of Aries is a deep, vibrant, intense spring red!  

Red energy should be used to give physical strength and endurance. It's energy can be found in many foods; tomatoes, cranberries, beets and cherries. 

The Aries light is entirely dynamic with an abundance of vitality.  It is the one light most likely to help overcome any kind of weakness!  

The keynote here is activity, manifesting on the material plane as ambition, initiative, and creativeness.  On the higher plane, the light of Aries is purely spiritual, producing adventures in pioneering a better world for all mankind.

Red Tigers Eye or Red Jasper are the gemstones for this sign.  

 

Oils which vibrate on a red frequency include ylang ylang, sandalwood and juniper. 

 




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 that things are definitely looking up!!  I must remark upon the Black Swan event known as the Trump Bump, and take my hat off to a miracle!

     Saturn, the planet of NO!!! teeters on the cusp of the markets sixth house of everyday every day, backwards; our daily routine and the things that give our time structure, schedules; of employees, fellow employees, those who work or serve us in some way; health, hygiene, and the way we worry about things, and best of all, small animals and pets.  If we have any investment in these areas, let's take a long long long hard look at our rationale, and maybe consider a further diversification.  Saturn will bounce around till the first of next year on this sensitive cusp, so we have time, the great gift of Saturn, to think, plan, proceed carefully.  This will prove a little difficult since Sagittarius is an impossibly optimistic sign, and we will keep a careful watch to make sure we don't over shoot our mark!

    Another of the major factors of which we must be carefully cognizant is Pluto in Sagittarius, retrograde 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!  The election of Donald Trump, as well as that of Le Pen, and the Brexit was ordained in the world, as are other Black Swan events, the lancing of long stagnant boils.

     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 Aries, the electric blue orb will kick start our ambitions, our gumption and our extremes.  Well it sure has!

     Moving slowly in its folds of dream, Neptune in the eighth house of Aquarius is responsible for all the dire prognostications of the market crashing, burning, dying on the ice and never coming back.  

   Transiting Jupiter is nearing the end of his journey through Virgo in the fourth house of endings, where we sense our way forward..

    Mercury is in Aries, in the tenth house of profession and governance, backwards, so we know that we won't make a wise move now.  Stay put!

    Mars is in Taurus in the Markets eleventh house of large groups, fellowship, unions.

    Venus is in emotional, colorful, splashy Pisces, in the ninth house of the law, The Law, travel plans, school, and foreign affairs. 

    The sun in Aries, in the tenth house of government, professionalism, and dads everywhere.





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.
