Wednesday 29 March 2017

We get the name Wednesday from Wotan, the Viking version of Mercury.  The name for March comes from Mars, that force of nature representing spring, new life, the Spring Lamb!  Why do we name our days and months after old outdated ideas that no one recalls?  To honor their rich contribution to our varied and timeless culture!
 
Our sun glimmers in the shimmering scales of sidereal Pisces, the Enchanted Fishes, at 14 degrees.  Across the background lie the stars of the beautiful princess Andromeda, The Enchained.  This daughter of Men became a victim of others boastfulness and vanity, and was due to be sacrificed on the alter of vengeance!  Luckily, a seamonster died instead! The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The Set Free From Death;  Delivered From the Grave;  and The Assembled.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are domestic, idealistic, and home loving with a real dislike of dissension and combativeness.  The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 
 
The names of the stars in the sign Pisces itself include Quickly Returning, The Redeemer, The Shepherd,  Uniting, Upholding, The Multitude, The Company of Him Who Cometh, Posterity, and Multiplying.  This is the sign you find most often representing any show business, managerial, or royal industry.  Put them together for real insight!!
 
The intriguing constellation consists of two fish, one upright facing northward and the other, parallel ling the path of the sun, sports a crown or circlet of stars above its head.  They are joined together by one shimmering band, linking them loosely. We immediately think of those two species ever at odds, Spirit and Soul, joined together by the silver cord of the body during life.  How often does our spirit long to leap free into the sparkling air while our soul soars down into the purple deep, with only our body holding us in place?  This fish tale is our story, the fish and the fishers of men!  We can fight our way upstream or go with the flow, it's all in our own power to choose.  

This band which nets the Fishes together hosts the brightest stars of the whole constellation as a knot.  It loops around the fish tails, (or tales!!) around the neck of the great Whale Cetus and under the outstretched arm of the Lamb.  

The Pisces sun enlivens within us real empathy, sustaining compassion, and emotional alchemy.  While in Pisces, the sun is at it's most imaginative height, the peak of the creative process, filled with generosity, thoughtful, and kind!  Dreamy, romantic, loving music and song, we feel no enmity, loving all unselfishly and unstintingly, offering sympathy when we have nothing else.  

This is an especially intense time for us on earth, as the golden orb of beauty, value, and appreciation splashes through Pisces in a fantastic backspin. This Venus retrograde will run the entire length of the bands and the first fish in Pisces, turning about on tax day, April 15th, the day between Good Friday and Easter.  What a signal!! We can most wisely use this window to see fine tune our own set of values!  Venus will reconnect with the sun in early January of 2018, so make the most of it now!!

In Pisces, Venus is at her exaltation, where she can widely express beauty in art, color, music, rhythm, subtle energy flows.  It is hard to miss the connection between Mary of Magdalene, Venus, and Pisces, especially right now.  Mary is surely the woman with the alabaster jar who anointed Jesus the Christ for His death at the close of the Last Supper.  She later is the One who found the tomb empty, becoming the Apostle of the Apostles.  We would be prudent to spend time in watching how we value our own emotions and spiritual connections, what binds us to our fellows, as well as what is keeping us bound to earth.  The way we spend our money, which is of value as long as we live, and what seems most worthy of our attention, need some inspection. Changes in taste or fields of endeavor are likely transitory, and are best viewed as experiments or detours.  We would wisely avoid new colors, purchases in art or jewelry or clothing, or beginning therapies of all kinds.  The review through the enchanted sign of emotional ups and downs, of art and theater and intensities, by the Golden Girl will be revealing to our eyes! 

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.  The moon peeps into Aries just after midnight this morning!  With the moon in Aries we at our most daring and reckless, hedonistic and rebellious.  We are also at our most anxious about what others think about our style.  Not the time to immerse combine purple and green with orange in the ensemble!  Special care must be taken of the head and face, 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 face lift now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.

What a charming morning, especially for the end of March, roaring out!  This morning before 4 33 AM Pacific, 7 33 AM eastern, we have a good word, a positive urge, an incoming miracle landing on us, loud and in living color.  Our attitude increases in tempo through 5 07 AM Pacific, 7 07 AM eastern time.  What a great way to see the month out!

Just before lunch time on the west coast, 11 16 AM Pacific, 2 16 PM eastern time, we happen on many positive avenues to pursue our aims.  We are apt to hear positive press releases about ourselves, compliments and encouragement, which we will put in the right context.  It is incumbent upon us to pass the good word along, to uplift and encourage others as we have been given so much light!

Thursday is a positive action day, best spent tackling the hard edged corners and power knots!

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!!

With both the most Benefic of orbs retrograde, we can find our greatest strength and stamina in our own natal sun, or in the power of Pisces!
 
This is the 4th week of Lent.  Good Friday is in 3 weeks, on the 14th of April, with Venus going direct the next day, Saturday the 15th, and of course the Easter celebrations on the 16th.  Happy Spring and Happy Birthday Aries!!
 
Some of the Wisest on earth consider us to be in the Age of Aquarius, while others point to the helical rising of the actual sign at the vernal equinox of 2597 A.D..  Since we feel the effects of every cusp event beginning at the 10 degree approach, and need not wait for culmination, we are right either way!  
 
Many of us choose to make a minor adjustment in our behavior or diet, Fridays especially, as we are in the season of Lent, in solidarity with the spiritual experience of Jesus the Christ, and all of Nature as it waits to bud. Not a necessity by any means, nor a means of securing favor, but a surefire way of connecting more closely with what we love the most! Remember, Star Travelers, from star dust we came and to that cosmic rainbow we will return!!

Keep calm and pray on!!

The light of Pisces is described as softest lilac, a light purple!  Often it is mixed with fiercly pink magenta!

 

 

 

The Piscean light is purely spiritual in nature, frequently affecting heavenly connections and subtle awakenings.  Lilac energy rays prompt us to aid and help others without return or reward.  We rush to rescue!  We are always guided from above.

 

The magenta shade is the color of altrusim and selfless service to humanity.  

 

Raspberrys are that color, as are some sunsets at this time of year, so intense as to stop traffic in awe.   




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, 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, 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, another Black Swan event, 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!

     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, so we know what motivation sounds like!!! 

    Mars is in Aries, in the Markets tenth house of governance, and dads everywhere.  Wha-hoo!!!!

    Venus is in emotional, colorful, splashy Pisces, spinning backward in the ninth house of the law, The Law, travel plans, school, and foreign affairs.  Let's not make any changes now.

    The sun in Pisces, in the ninth house of the law, travel, school, and foreigners  





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.
