Happy Rose Month!!!
Happy Birthday sidereal Gemini!!!!
The sixth month of the year brings in the summer season! The view of Eden returns anew!!
The sun dances in exciting Gemini, whose stars are The Ruler Comes in Haste, The Judge, The Strong One Coming to Suffer, to
Labor, The Afflicted, Trodden Underfoot, Established a Foundation, The Spreading Branch, The Seed, Stem.
Today the background stars leap up as Lepus the Hare. This mad March hare was originally the Man in the Moon, and is said to interpret dreams, receive the souls of the dead, and hold those souls waiting to be born. The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The Mad, The Dreamer, The Deceiver, and The Enemy.
Those people and relationships born under these stars are alert, ingenious, perceptive, studious, and forceful of personality.
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 Monday 18 June 2018
The moon roars in Leo ahead of the Gemini sun, and life is all about fun, kids, family! We become even more expansive, convivial, fun! We need our friends around us, need to impress our colleges and enemies alike, and to lavish attention and goodwill all around. Not the time to sit out! Special care must be taken of the heart 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 angioplasty now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
We begin our real work just before dawn this morning, 4 19 AM Pacific, 7 19 AM eastern, with sudden realizations of improvements! We can see clearly just how things should go even better! We are tempted to rush but are unwise to skip breakfast at 5 33 AM Pacific, 8 33 AM eastern time.
By lunch on the west coast, 3 39 PM eastern, we have spoken at length regarding school classes, scheduling, legal prodecures, and come out the wiser!
Everything vague, and inspirational, fades at 4 26 PM Pacific, 7 26 PM eastern time, and we can find our reasoning sharp, clear, cold. It is unwise to attack our prior views should we see fit to change them now.
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the west coast will hear heavens words distinctly now!
Tuesday puts us in good stead for study of complicated or confused issues!
Summer Solstice falls this Thursday the 21 st!!!! The sun will celebrate in Gemini whilst the moon ghosts through Virgo.
Our source of energy and ambition will slide backwards in the Home sign of Cancer on Tuesday the 26th. We are in the best position to relax and enjoy vacation, to view our entertainments more critically, to shrug philosophically at the political games till the end of August. This makes for a summer of fun, fair games, and nothing too serious!!!
Mercury will relax in Cancer on Tuesday the 26th, and we gab about all things familiar. As the orb of communication sifts onto the cushiony sign of the Crab at the same time as Mars goes deep, we can wisely confine ourselves to talking, planning, investigating a remodel or a redecoration of all things home, mom, underground, or anything hinging on water or the tides. We are in for a turning there, Star Travelers!
The June full moon falls the next day, Wednesday the 27th , at 9 53 PM Pacific in Sagittarius, the Celestial Archer. This will be the Thunder Moon of legend! It is also the Hay or the Buck Antler Moon, when the deer shed the velvet casings on their headgear.
The following Sunday is the first of July!!!! Summer is a blast!!
The 4 th of July is on a Wednesday, and Chiron will turn retrograde in sidereal Pisces. Old hurts flare up, and now can be healed!
The July new moon will fall on Thursday the 12 th, and we must be most careful and thoughful about what we are saying. It is bound to come Home to us!!
Mercury will start to exhibit real qualms on Monday the 16 th of July, as it slows down, and will turn retrograde on Thursday the 16 th in the Home sign of sidereal Cancer. Let's not start home repairs or move to a new location or redecorate the house, or our private little cave, till after August 18 th when it goes direct. Wiser still, let's wait till after the August full moon on the 26 th!!
Mercury will sink down retrograde on July 26th, retreading the carpeted Cancer wherever it falls in our individual charts. Cancer is a very personal, immediate sign, and we will all feel this retrograde very intimately, through the 19th of August 2018. With Mars and Mercury retrograding through our Home sign, we can make maximum profit by review of our words, how we present ourselves verbally, especially to family and those close to us. Our reactions to the world around us can be cool, introspective, almost detached!!
We can expect a resounding summer season, with more than one super surprise!!!
Life is full of reasons to celebrate!!!
The Christian Gemini
knight, on quest for the True Cross, the Great Work, or the Holy Grail. The Christian Gemini knight is out traversing the worlds, rescuing, slaying monsters, banishing evildoers, and salvaging treasures. As a Gemini, this knight speaks the most powerful testimony eloquently and lyrically, delighting all who hear with its joy, truth, grace, and inclusion!
Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Gemini knight is most concerned about The Judge, Arriving In Haste; he is a Strong One coming To Labor, and Suffer; that his Foundation Shall rescue The Afflicted, and he is a Spreading Branch.
Gemini is the sign of reciprical duality, the successful balancing of the energy of opposite polarities. It is often called, the sign of the twins, which can be said to signify the present phase of consciousness.
Gemini is vibrant, persistent and enthusiastic and has the ability to think outside the box in brilliant strokes and flashes.
When unbalanced, it can be very demanding and act childishly.
Geminis color is obviously orange!! The function of orange energy is to find, spark and maintain harmony in our creative feeling and sensing, which can be accomplished by allowing the femine energy to be expressed.
Orange is cheerful, spontaneous and playful.
Carnelian is good for releasing negative energy within.
Neroli can be used to promote peaceful creativity, such an invigorating aroma! It is said to spark marriages.
Orange color therapy glasses be worn to help see the world joyfully.
accompanies the trip of our orb of communication through glizty, ditzy, garrulous Gemini. If we are alert, we glean a life times worth of wisdom! If we are gullible, we make major mistakes now. En gard!!
The phantom moon Vulcan continues to stir the pot with the bulls tale! Ok, tail, if you will, but I say tales are tails and then some!
Redecorating the living room
is on our agenda, and we do it well as Venus, the Golden Girl of the cosmos, rests in the Home sign of Cancer. Our children are especially dear to us now, and we may be tempted to overspend on them.
The children we bring into the world now are going to be beautiful!!
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, exalts in Capricorn. Everything we do when it comes to family, job, profession, or governance, will really count now!
is under the watchful Eye of mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now backtracking in Libra. This tends to send us into the arms of old friends, ancient fads, retrends. 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.
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!!
What a year we have ahead!
Timetables, class schedules, business meeting plans
are 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 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!!
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!
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 seventh 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? 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???

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.
