Demanding freedom, liberation and self-rule


Several festivals occur this week – Friday’s new moon (13 degrees Pisces), Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday (“from dust thou art…”). Also, Lent begins and Mercury enters Aries (preparing for Uranus entering Aries on March 11).

Everyone listening to the news knows that there are protests occurring in the Mideast and the U.S. It is important to understand that humanity has entered a stage of intellectual development in which it is able, for the first time, to aspire toward freedom. Humanity’s task is to be the World Disciple. Before it can assume this spiritual task, it must find its voice and seek freedom and liberation. This revolution esoterically has to do with the death of the personality and entering into the Kingdom of the Soul. Humanity, the masses, calling for democracy (self rule), continues to demand liberation in Aquarius.

Humanity is no longer organizing against the different parties, but is standing against the forces of materialism, darkness, obstruction and centralization (autocratic and dictatorial governments, big corporations, banks, the stock market, agro business, etc.). Humanity is building community. It will be done through revolution as the new archetypes come forth through Uranus in Aries.

We are in Pisces now (month and progressed U.S. Sun), ruled by Neptune, dissolver of all things obstructing humanity’s next developmental stage. We could call this Neptune time a pre-collapse stage. Before the new era is built, the old archetypes withdraw as the new Aquarian archetypes (freedom, liberation and community) take shape.

ARIES: You are making quick and decisive decisions, planning ahead. There’s little time for pondering. However, ponder you must. For Saturn, the structure-maker, is retrograde and decisions made now should not be implemented until mid-June. This is candid and direct information, which you may oppose. If you do, the long run will be frustrating. Use the new thinking that comes from astrological timing.

TAURUS: Unlike Aries, you take your time making decisions. Your “no” means “give me time to think.” Then no often turns to yes. Many don’t realize this about you. Your thinking is never scattered. You like to have fun and be pleasant (due to Venus). However, you are completely realistic, like Capricorn. The world is very real for you and your approach is always practical. You are valuable to many signs, people and friends.

GEMINI: You barely have time to organize. Is it difficult to pack? When the archeological digs of papers, books and clothes become too great, they go into a box. Then they’re thrown out. Is this the way things are these days? Conversations with you are interesting, a sort of philosophical meandering, meaning that you’re thinking of other things while conversing. You can be blunt, impatient, direct and indirect, loving and kind. What is the direct route between where you are and the esoteric class?

CANCER: It’s important to write down and organize all impressions. You’re intuitive and telepathic. Impressions contain assistance and information for future endeavors. They help you be more productive. Your word is your honor. You ask others to honor what you say. Are you honorable too? Doubting many things, you seek truth and reality. Here’s a mantram that helps, “Let reality govern my every thought, and truth be the master of my life.”

LEO: Someone lovely wants to play this week. Or else a new resource enters your life. Are you being somewhat non-communicative these days? Your mind seems to be locked into a strict pattern of thought. Actually there’s also a simultaneous attempt to break those thought forms, having become crystallized beliefs. This is interesting. The Dweller on the Threshold has arrived. His other side is the Angel of the Presence, offering a new world, new story, new life and freedom from the past. Who will you engage with?

VIRGO: You feel more instinctive, able to strategize better. You learn how to eliminate self-criticism to move toward greater cooperation. You feel a depth of realities and want to share them. But there’s no one of your capacity available. Stand in nature and begin to communicate. Read the Findhorn Garden. Realize that we are to cooperate and communicate with the devas to build the new world. This is your realm. Plant corn.

LIBRA: There’s a tremendous amount of work expected of you, and you roll up your sleeves. Each day everything is accomplished and this is good. However, I must ask about your health. Are you able to be consistent with exercise, vitamins and green foods? Chiron is entering your house of health. It’s important to have physical check-ups (doctors, dentist, etc.) and to comprehensively overhaul your health regime so you can continue to serve others. Tending to self makes you kind, good and fair to yourself – unusual.

SCORPIO: Know that you are useful; your work and research invaluable. You are capable of holding exacting information, both general and detailed. Humbled by your capacities, you are also protective of them. You can be impatient, sometimes quite grumpy when overwhelmed, which can be often. Although you hide away, you’re also grateful for recognition, praise and acknowledgement. You care deeply but hide it. We see you.

SAGITTARIUS: When speaking, consider speaking with style. What would that mean? It means with intelligence, no hidden agendas, no sarcasm, no self-criticism (hidden), no seeking of acceptance. Speaking with style tells others that you have presence of mind, confidence, intellectual abilities and the capacity to love well. It also displays your creativity, extraordinary drama and talent for writing (when you’re in touch) from the heart.

CAPRICORN: You communicate with feeling. Sometimes you’re withdrawn. Your nature is sensitive, thoughtful and personal. You’re free-spirited, too. When people look at you they don’t quite know what they’re seeing. They don’t understand your meditative, reflective side or your direct communication of emotions. Because of your depth, people at times think that you’re hiding something. We know you’re not. Always you attempt to bring forth balance within a universal rhythm and beat. The angels understand. Dance.

AQUARIUS: Your mind is quick, sometimes scattered because it’s eclectic, filled with facts, figures, knowledge that stimulates and impresses others. You know everyone, picking up bits and pieces of information with lightning speed. You are restless, nervous and must keep moving. You are logical and often don’t entertain the emotions of others. Be logical and conservative with your finances, money and resources this year. Do not ignore them. Keep them close.

PISCES: Rely on your senses. Make decisions that are down to earth, not mystical. In the coming days you will provide others with concrete answers and basic concepts that will assist them in real-world, practical realities. You will teach them to do for themselves, and guide them toward an accelerated developmental stage. You will be no-nonsense. This will be greatly useful for your sense of identity and self-confidence. Pisces falls to Earth.
