Remember the 4th Commandment

taurusOn Mother’s Day – Venus in Cancer (the protector). Sun in Taurus (comforter), Aquarius moon (nourisher). Mother, the comforter (Taurus), nurturer, nourisher (moon).

Mother’s Day (Sunday) this year, with Aquarius Moon, may be a bit unusual, Uranian, unexpected, unpredictable. My mother is no longer on the Earth to call upon, have dinner with, receive flowers or cards. I try remembering everything about her, what she attempted to teach us, her children. Often, I was unable to hear or understand her intentions. This saddens me.

It’s important to remember the 4th Commandment to “Honor thy Mother & Father.” Many of us have forgotten this and the other nine commandments given to Moses for humanity’s direction at the beginning of the Aries Age. Positions and responsibilities in life change as we grow older. The mother/father become the ones who must be cared for and tended in later years.

On Mother’s Day, let us thank and honor our mothers, accepting the future when we will care for and assist them…our opportunity to nurture and love more.

For those whose mothers have died we say Ohm Mani Padme Hum, placing them in the jewel of the lotus. And if emotionally separated from the mother, we recite St. Francis of Assisi’s prayer. It helps re-establish Right Relations and Goodwill with the mother. St. Francis of Assisi was Libra Sun, saint of Right Human Relations.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, let me sow joy.” To all mothers (& fathers who are mothers), Happy Mother’s Day.
