We’re in chirotic times: times of chaos, crisis, catastrophe and calamity (earthquakes, tsunami, war in Libya, etc.), leading to a new world era. What is occurring and how do we understand it? Ray 1 is streaming into the world, in specific places (spiritual outlets). Ray 1 (Pluto/Vulcan), at first destroys, liberating materialism and removing what obstructs the new creation. Ray 1 (will of God, purpose), later builds the new realities, culture and civilization. For now we are in the first phase of destruction. On the inner planes it is always love that underlies the happenings of the times. Great sacrifice has love at the center.
We’re in Aries now – Pisces’ waters merged into Aries’ fires. During Aries we hear (appropriately) about clashes and wars (Mars), protests (Mercury) and revolutions (Uranus). Mars and Aries are fiery, anchoring the life force within matter (rays 1 and 7). Fire expresses spirit. Liturgical news: We’re in Lent (40 days and nights of purification prior to Easter/Resurrection). Thursday is the Annunciation. The angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will be the mother of the savior. Mercury News: Mercury begins to retrograde (Aries, 24 degrees), Wednesday and until Holy Saturday (April 23, 12 Aries). We all know what to do (and not to do). Retrograde means review.
ARIES: You review your appearance, how you’re seen in the world, seeking a new level of self-esteem and self-care. You assess use of power and will. Your mind is strong. In attempting to understand how to lead humanity into the light, you must first stand in that light, which pierces the darkness and frees the new ideas flowing forth. These ideas are impressed upon your mind. Observe this. Create a journal (record) of impressions.
TAURUS: All around you will be signs of two fishes (Pisces). You begin to connect the mind with love. Actually, love is pure reason. You distinguish between the lower mind and the higher. One separates into bits and pieces of knowledge, always questioning – the other unifies that knowledge into Pallas Athena, intuition. By communicating with great love, you are able to awaken awareness of love within others. Many love you.
GEMINI: If you ponder upon the symbol of Aquarius the water bearer, and the Aquarian keynote, “waters of life poured forth for thirsty humanity,” and if you study the Aquarian Laws of Principles, you will begin to understand the unifying principles behind the work you are seeking to do – uniting first your heart and mind, then uniting groups with the new Aquarian ideas and ideals (one follows the other). In your heart you want to serve humanity. Your intuition is strong. You see patterns. You seek your group. It’s waiting.
CANCER: Although it’s difficult, you seek to relate clearly and intelligently. A new level of creative intelligence will be coming forth. It’s different than before and initially not recognized by you. Look for this new creativity to come forth from you into the world. It will be a strand of the mind of God seeking to anchor the new sharing principles of the new age. You will be sensitive to the collective called humanity, the world disciple. You will feed them.
LEO: You assess what it means to be a teacher as your higher mind overshadows your lower. You realize that you must impart to others on the path the vision of your truth. You cannot be silent, continually hiding behind veils of protection. You are to take up bow and arrow and pierce the hearts of both the sleepers and the seekers. Teaching others becomes your loving service. Thus you resurrect everyone’s minds. Your regular, technical day job isn’t enough.
VIRGO: Pondering upon Ray 4 – harmony created through conflict – is an important study at this time. Perceiving reality through Ray 4, it describes your (and humanity’s) way of being. We learn through Ray 4. You will sense a great testing, which leads to the knowledge of a power to be used for either good or the not-good. You are also to raise desire toward aspiration. What is the difference in these two words?
LIBRA: Let us consider the words “right human relations.” These words begin with the intention for goodwill and the result is the process of peace(fullness). These are Libra words, made just for you. They foster humanitarian vision, communication and unification. Libra links disparate realities and ideas that save the world. All Libras are being called to the path of world service. That path includes the transformative love of family, produced through forgiveness.
SCORPIO: You may begin to sense an affinity with the moon, seashore, crabs and crabby things. Don’t be crabby yourself, though. You may begin to feel an affinity with mother and mothering, with nurturing of self and others. How do you nurture and what nurtures you? Important questions. You discover that you’re gestating new ideas concerning daily life, health and service. These ideas are to be shared with the world of men. They nourish all who hear them – within the context of gratitude.
SAGITTARIUS: Notice that your creative powers are very strong, potent, immediate and connected with your thoughts, which want to externalize immediately, totally and intimately. Also, in the next several weeks you will assess where your rest, recreation, time with friends (true friends), children, play and simple pleasures are to be found. You will assess if any of this ever truly happens. And if not, you will set about creating them, reaching out and making contact. It’s all about love.
CAPRICORN: Life is on the edge now and protection of family is paramount. You’re attempting to balance everything into a state of harmony. Begin with yourself. Then you can communicate emotional security. Everything seems to be falling down – as it should. You/we are in a paradox – the old passing away, the new only in potential. You, however, holding strong, must see all three levels (past, present/future). You learn how to speak the truth and not be afraid. You know one must not compromise anymore.
AQUARIUS: You sense that everything’s filled with possibilities. Life becomes a lively state of affairs, many streams of thought coming together, you front and center. You seek pure reason – mind and heart merging. Realizing this advances humanity. You create experiences, writing and artwork with this in mind. Your speech and manners become graceful, refined, poised and charming, filled with the thoughts and intentions for goodwill and right relations. You’re ready for the new era.
PISCES: There’s an idea in the mind of God. You know it must be anchored on Earth. Previous attempts didn’t work. The time was not right. Earth wasn’t prepared. The present times of destruction are preparing the way for a greater beauty – a new education to emerge on Earth. You are to continue to bring forth the information so that all minds can be illumined. Call upon the forces of enlightenment to assist. A home will appear.
