The Light That Shines On Earth, Across the Sea Until the Dark is Gone
Barack Obama becomes the 44th U.S. president Tuesday. Obama begins his presidency in Mercury retro. Due to the Mercury retro, Obama’s presidential administration, executive governing, management and organization (along with his decentralized cabinet of strong-willed, gifted, highly intelligent and powerful leaders) will embrace in-depth internal analysis, detail, discernment, dispassion, and discrimination, qualities leaders must possess to be internationally effective.
As the new presidency begins, we are reminded of a quote by Sir Winston Churchill, ”The era of procrastination, of half measures, of soothing, and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.”
Obama’s astrological rising sign is 18 degrees Aquarius (Ray 5,). The rising sign directs the soul into the outer world. Because we are now in the Aquarian Age, the rising sign of planet Earth (and therefore all of humanity) is Aquarius (the water bearer). The Soul of Humanity thus expresses itself primarily as the Aquarian “water bearer” signifying the “Waters of Life Poured Forth for Thirsty Humanity” (Aquarius’ esoteric task).
It is through the characteristics and nature of Aquarius that humanity’s collective human purpose, during Obama’s presidency as well as the next 2,000 years, is revealed. Esoterically Aquarius (and Obama, a Gemini moon FaceBook communicator, through his Aquarius rising) is the “light that shines on Earth, across the sea…the light that ever shines within the dark and cleanses with its healing rays that which must be purified until the dark is gone.”
We, choosing to be part of the New Group of World Servers and thus “water bearers,” stand with President Obama in creating the new culture and civilization the heart of which is Love. Read more at www.nightlightnews.com)
ARIES: I don’t know of another time in your life where you will be called as deeply as you are now to be a server of humanity, focusing your will and abilities toward initiating the new culture and civilization and discovering like-minded groups who will assist you in this historical, era-changing task. This is what you’ve been called here to do. Step up now.
TAURUS: You are called to bring forth all ideas that will activate and then support the work Aries is to do to bring forth the new economic order (barter, sharing). The past months you’ve known your job was to gather information for the times to come, which you know will be difficult. Even if few listen, carry on as before.
GEMINI: Your mind reverses itself thinking on previous goals that did or did not manifest. You assess the education you did or did not complete. You think of travel and adventures, philosophies and religion, all these things in order to sort them out, asses beliefs, gather from your conclusions new goals, travels, adventures, ways of life, religious or spiritual beliefs. A new mind is then formed for the new times.
CANCER: The next weeks uncover deep and unrecognized feelings, which will develop into your next life steps. Careful. Don’t be too secretive about what you’re doing. You’ll want and need people around to share your thoughts and feelings, ideas and plans and simply what your heart’s missing these days. You also hold information valuable to other’s well being. Say yes to what’s offered. Then offer more.
LEO: Your mind assesses your everyday work, how you tend to yourself on a daily basis, perhaps animal kingdom’s needs, and the best ways to be effective and efficient within all these responsibilities when you experience less and less time. And then there’s relationships where communication is needed, ideas call for sharing, and time must be set-aside for special moments. This intense focus on time will continue. It’s a mirror into your future.
VIRGO: You’ll accomplish tasks and the redo them. You’ll have a thought and find a new thought arising. You’ll think you’ve completed something and find it’s completely incomplete. You’ll find odds and ends from the past showing up seeking something or other. You’ll be busy, productive, at times impatient, look backward, backpedal when necessary, review, renew, and in the midst of it all be happy.
LIBRA: You seek to add more technology to your daily life. This is good. Continue with this. However, knowing where Mercury is, there may be more than a few steps needed than expected. When new tools are up and running your creativity will express itself more broadly and deeply. Later in the week you’ll think about home, family, growing up, and foods you must prepare relating to art and culture. Relationships shift.
SCORPIO: What you feel deeply are questions of security and what signifies safety? You think about home, wondering where it truly is. You consider living in other areas and even think about ordering an astro-cartography chart. What you need to include is community, because in the future you can no longer be alone all the time. What would community mean for you?
SAGITTARIUS: It’s good to explore the neighborhood, neighbors, downtown, creating renewed social contact with others near and around. It’s good to focus on things local, consciously spending money that supports community resources. You may also think about and study, especially during the retrograde, investing in gold or silver, precious metals. Information goes retro, gets mixed up, takes wrong turns. Sag is one of the signs of silence.
CAPRICORN: Careful with money. Money and finances will become a focused endeavor. You’ll find yourself more generous. However, you can also spend in areas that are not essential, thus depleting your financial resources. Make a monthly budget and assess expenditures at months’ end. If there are children around teach them the value, use and tithing of money. You will not lack money. It is simply a time to be consciously careful with it.
AQUARIUS: More and more people will be attracted to you, to what you do and say. It’s Jupiter, shining its benevolent light upon all that you are and how you live your life. This has two sides. One is constantly being in the spotlight and the other is finding it hard to have rest, quiet and solace out of the spotlight. Fame may come calling, so be prepared. In the meantime be extra careful with health and add more exercise.
PISCES: We see you struggling to flourish and for a year or more this struggle continues. It’s a struggle of identity, geography, place, groups and of things constantly dissolving. New opportunities and contacts eventually emerge from the shadows as past hopes and wishes are renewed. However, they will also be more practical. Use your money on something special for yourself. A future plan is coming into form and matter. It loves you. You’ll want to dress for it.
