Esoteric Astrology for April 10-16, 2008

Creating New Identities

The week, as the Shamballa (Ray 1) Force continues: Thursday, Gemini moon, is quite busy. Friday, Cancer moon, the ‘gates’ swing open, something enters form and matter. We hunger for creamy, warm foods. Saturday and Saturday night are v/c. Sunday sadnesses and grief emerge. We respond with intelligent love. Leo moon Sunday and Monday. Tuesday moon enters purificatory (alchemical word) Virgo. Wednesday is Pope Benedict’s 81st birthday. He visits the U.S. next week (Washington D.C., the United Nations). Passover begins Saturday and the Wesak Festival is a week away. We prepare our crystal vessel (chalice) and gather smaller ones. Read more at www.nightlightnews.com.

ARIES: There will be much to ponder this week as ideas flow into your mind like lightning bolts providing new information concerning who you are, who you are supposed to be, your choices preparing for this lifetime, and how to combine all into a synthetic unity. It’s done by first understanding your family history, then knowing we are our ancestors, and realizing we are here to heal each other, everyone in our family, including ourselves. Then we move upward.

TAURUS: Like Aries, thoughts are flowing through your mind like fire from Mercury and truly they are, for Mercury is the metal and the god of alchemy, that which we need in order to move onward and upward on the evolutionary Jacob’s ladder. You almost seem lost in realms none of us understand, perceive or even vaguely experience. Stay there as long as possible for the information received may well save the world. Do take some time for walking, exercising, tending to the garden and eating correctly, lest you fall down and forget who you are.

GEMINI: The planets are gathered in Aries, your tenth house of world and professional recognition, gifts you provide others and the cosmic invitation to help create the new culture and civilization. This is a serious, esoteric statement that I know, if you are reading this, you can understand. Aries provides us with new self-identity. We’re pushed to study, which rebuilds our mind, then we aspire to build everything new. You are called to do this. Begin to read “Externalization of the Hierarchy.” If you have questions, write.

CANCER: An expanded mind is attempting to form within you, a mind that not only thinks on self and family, but includes thoughts on child tending, justice (why is it blinded?) and philosophy (Ancient Wisdom teachings). As you may travel or if you are considering it, there are five very special esoteric locations that are actually spiritual inlets – New York City, London, Geneva, Darjeeling and Tokyo. The U.S. has five known charkas: New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Kansas City, Mo. and Los Angeles. Should you visit these areas, greet its protective Deva (Angel).

LEO: Because of last week’s column, a Leo reader wrote that she was suffering. I responded that we have many lives and some of those lives we suffer tremendously and that our God, Sanat Kumara from Venus, suffers too. And that when we suffer we are able to share His burdens of suffering and alleviate them, providing Him rest and care. I also wrote that those who suffer understand others who suffer and that suffering eventually makes us healers. Some day, some time, somewhere, this has, is, or will occur for you. We stand with you.

VIRGO: You may be reading all the signs and that is good. Our natal chart contains all the signs. You know this. You wonder what yours is this week. All those Aries planets are hiding quietly in your eighth house of transformation, sex, intimacy and other people’s money (or money held in common). The purpose of planets in the eighth house is to transform everything into better and greater, more inclusive and loving terms. Can you do this? Can you have the intentions? Yes, you say. Happiness appears subtly.

LIBRA: I’ve been writing to each sign about new identity and it’s occurring for you, Libra, within relationships (either you have left, are leaving, or entering one). The new identity concerns how, in the future, you will be, what you will provide, what is valuable, and what you are seeking in relationships. New states of independence, courage and strength are emerging helping you move forward on your own. Love comes again. And great help comes, too.

SCORPIO: Your daily life may be in upheaval and change, creating a new identity with work. Perhaps there’s desire (Mars) to do more and better or you seek to study new ideas (Mercury) that will outline the new culture, architecture and atmosphere (all Uranus) of all that you do each day, how you make money, and how to serve both yourself and others. This is a very involved and complex, yet simple and undemanding statement to you Scorpio. Absorb it slowly for understanding. Then gradually apply it.

SAGITTARIUS: Who you’ve been and what you identified as through your creative efforts (also fun, games and play) is now forming a foundation for who you’re going to be and how you’ll identify yourself. You are in transition. Many things initiated now may be completed because everything’s an experiment, like trying on new clothes, new hats, new culture, new friends. If you feel everything’s also a risk, it is. Life is trying to find its perfect next fit with you.

CAPRICORN: Attempting to realize new and intelligent ways to be and interact with family is an excellent task now as the family seeks the next level of intelligent love (Venus), a new wisdom (Pallas Athena) based on the gathering of new knowledge about family dynamics, and new ways to communicate (Mercury) to move beyond the disharmony of misunderstanding (creating chaos and confusion) into the next level of loving harmony. As always, have the intention, pray as a family to find, achieve and have it all. Ohm.

AQUARIUS: Notice how you feel more brilliant, with ideas flowing into your mind so fast you can’t remember most of them. A great force is falling to earth now between the Aries and Taurus (Wesak) festivals, and then an even greater force (Ray 1) till June. Be as attentive as you are able, jot down ideas for later use and manifestation, study Alchemy for inspiration. The new Aquarian art is coming. You’ll want to be the first to understand, summon it and thus create it.

PISCES: You will think about resources and values in new ways. Whereas most things in form and matter have seemed hidden from you, a new thought form of both preparation and of solutions appears in symbols, the language of the Rain Cloud of Knowable Things. A thought comes to me to understand the Biblical transition of the Hebrew people on their journey from Egypt (Taurus) to Canaan/Israel (Aries). Study this biblical history. A new insight is needed. More on this next week.
