The sun roars into sidereal Aries at 11 40 AM Pacific time on Wednesday the 14th; a whole change of attitude and shift of energy has preceded the sun, with Mercury (our thinking) and Venus (our values) being occluded by the overwhelming solar power. We identify with our selves, no matter the sign, over what we are thinking or what we value. Yes we can expect trouble of all kinds!! This energy hits our nation in the 5th house of pleasure, riotous Aries, angry Aries, marauding Aries being at violent and terrible play disregarding civility, value, kindness, or charity. An expensive time!!
On the 18th we will recognize, at last, what all this is costing us in terms of our civilization, our nation itself.
We won't be able to fully incorporate what is going on until the 28th of April when both Mercury and Venus break free of the sunbeams.
The month of May brings Mars under the sunbeams, along with Uranus, while the beneficent planets are free. Oh, what comes!
When God first named the stars and planets, and instructed Adam how to read them as a scroll of salvation across the skies, we all regarded them as letters of light and love! Later, after the fall engineered by the rebel angels, the celestial orbs were downgraded to the status of gods in their own right. Nowadays we consider them archetypes of our collective unconscious! What a demotion!
As Christs sacrifice restored the relationship between Creator and creation, we see the stars as fellow travelers meant to light our way and guide our attention to the will of God!! We think it helps to present them as the familiar companions from our daily readings.
The closest orb to the sun is Mercury, whose angelic nature is that of communicator. All our ideas and the way we conceive them can be determined from the position of Mercury.
This planet has much in common with Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, and with Mark, who did know the Lord personally. Mark was much younger than the other writers. His mother was a prominent follower of Jesus Christ. Acts 12:12 tells us that her house in Jerusalem was used as a meeting place for other disciples. From this verse we also learn that her sonís full name is John Mark.
Mercury currently splashes in Pisces and our thoughts, our way of thinking, our means of collecting information, is just as twisty and splayed about. From now till the 18th of April, Mercury will be too close to the sun to be felt by the rest of the cosmos, the solar rays overpowering every other impulse. On that day, Sunday the 18th, the conjunction of the two causes us to think with complete and incisive clarity on the issues of energy, challenges, desires that demand action to achieve. A great time for plotting as well as acting on it!!
We spend the next ten days wondering what we were thinking!!
On the first of May, Mercury will blossom in Taurus, and all will be green and sweet and coming up daisies
Venus, the brightest star in our skies, the one which can cast its own shadow on moonless nights, is also known as the Morning or Evening Star. Her trajectory traces one upright star shape every eight years, and one reversed pentagram the next eight years. She is quite an enigma on so many levels, as was Jesusí beloved companion, Mary of Magdalene.
Mary may have been the woman with the alabaster jar, whose hair was long enough to dry the feet she had just anointed with precious ointment. Venus is called the long-haired star.
Like Mary, Venus describes value, values, what we value and how we attract.
Venus in Aries, home of feisty Mars, is uneasy, but as luck would have it, all these anxieties and uncertainties lie just underneath our consciousness. As she is completely overwhelmed by the proximity to the sun and its potent rays, we feel our artistic tastes rise and come to the fore.
Venus in Aries always brings us to launching forays into the social sphere which we all miss for friends, family, connection. Now is the best time for romancing the high seas, pirates and cowboys, nature in its own element.
Mars reminds us of Simon Peter!! All thunder and noise, red haired and red blooded, ready to rock at a moments notice!! He was much like James and John, sons of Zebedee, the Sons of Thunder, whom we can see in the shape of Uranus.
Mars describes how we go about getting what we want, but not what we want. We pursue, chase, aspire to and drive toward with Mars.
Mars is in Taurus, and we must be on guard!! He can tear up the lawn in his zeal for combat, real or mock. Many of us feel Mars in Taurus as a flu or laryngitis.
On the 14th of April Mars dances into Gemini, and our social life can get frenzied!
Jupiter the king of the planets, the giants giant, the supersizer of the cosmic, is a lot like King Solomon. The planet governs wealth and wisdom, both inherited, as well as pilgrimages, foreign affairs, and religious views.
Jupiter bobs in sidereal Aquarius, broadening our horizons and expanding our views, exploding the rich ideas all around us!!
Matthew was not only a sinner, but quite aware of it, and of his past, all his life. He never let that stop him from following Jesus whole heartedly, or from preaching His Gospel!
Matthew was an accurate record keeper. He knew the human heart and the longings of the Jewish people. He was loyal to Jesus and once committed, he never wavered in serving the Lord.
On the other hand, before he met Jesus, Matthew was greedy. He thought money was the most important thing in life and violated Gods laws to enrich himself at the expense of his countrymen.
Saturn is ruling from his home sign of Capricorn at the Top of the zodiac, keeping status quo static. We need some form of stability now, not that things are great, but they could be so much worse. The Lord of the Rings will remain at the Top of the zodiac till January 24th of 2023, what???? The next election year!
The frozen titans of the solar family remain somewhat steadfast through this century.
Uranus is the real culprit behind the riots, the military in the capitals, is the higher martial vibration of Mars higher self, the Sons of Thunder, James and John sons of Zebedee. Aries and Mars go together like hand in glove, and now Aries hosts Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, direct and in touch with himself. Uranus is the one planet that cannot be used as an indicator or as a prediction of anything but the unexpected...it is His star, by the way, as it was visible to the naked eye in the night sky at His birth in 3 BC. Called the Awakener, and the Disturber, Uranus threw us a curve!! How like our adorable savior to do it with panache!! He inspires Revolution.
Uranus the great cosmic hand grenade bouncing through Aries has woken the revolutionary in all of us!! We are made aware of beheadings for a reason. We must take into account where we are headed!!
Despite his glaring flaws, David is described as a man after Gods own heart in 1 Samuel 13 and in Acts 13:22. David was far from perfect, but his faith and zeal made him the standard against which all Israels future kings would be measured. Grandson of Ruth, shepherd boy, slayer of giants, musician, fornicator, murderer, psalmist, king, anointed...sounds a lot like a modern Neptune all right.
Ruling Pisces, Neptune has so many close associations with our own sign as it passes beyond the Gate of God. Religious fervor, self-sacrifice, martyrdom, as well as delusion, illusion, addiction to drugs and to intense emotional shocks to the system, all so evident in our daily life now as the Age gasps the final breath. Neptune is also the planet of communism, a plague of satanic envy and destructiveness, which we now call socialism as communism light. In Aquarius, the sign of brotherhood and ideals, this all sounds terrifically fair and workable!! Except when we try to put it to earth and make it work materially, because it brings out the worst in human nature, not the best. It was spawned in hell by the enemy of our kind, so how can good come from it? Be serious. And the Scandinavian countries are not socialist- just ask them. They are free market economies that are heavily taxed on an emasculated middle class.
Neptune in its own sign of sidereal Pisces begins in January 2024, the next election year!
Neptune in Aquarius brings up the best ideals, like sandcastles or fairy vistas in the clouds. We can't live in them.
Pluto has shown us, through the pictures sent back from New Horizons, its heart! Andrew was a preacher with God in his heart.
An early disciple of John the Baptizer, Andrew, and John, the Son of Zebedee were present when John the Baptist said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" Andrew was the first to follow Jesus and his enthusiasm was evident as his desire to introduce his older brother to Jesus revealed what was already in his heartóa deep love for God.
He was not a dominant person next to his outspoken brother. He was a passionate preacher and shared the gospel boldly and was a significant contributor to the early church.
Andrew died a martyrís death. He faced crucifixion with boldness and courage. He cried out, "Oh, cross most welcome and longed for! With a willing mind, joyfully and desirously, I come to you, being a scholar of Him which did hang on you, because I have always been your lover and yearn to embrace you."
Pluto rises to the top of the zodiac, Capricorn at 0 degrees, as is the ruler of the sign, Saturn. The planet of NO!! extends a clamp down on finances and on the 'president.' We might as well face it, Star Travelers, our country is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, and these wild spending policies are just the kind of impetus to send it over the edge. As the economy is still not open in many places after a year in lockdown, Americans are going to be in rebellious and angry mood, and we are not the gentlest populace at the best of times.
Pluto spends the time inching through Capricorn, but zeros out again on the 27th of June till backing into Sagittarius, karmically, on the 10th of August. It remains at the karmic degree of the Law and all legal affairs till zeroing again on the 2nd of December 2021. Our exact Pluto return occurs on the 27th of March 2023 through June of that year.
Jesus identified Himself as a member of the Morning Stars, a group of angels so holy they are in a class by themselves. this star in Revelation 16, saying, 16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star."
