“I Have Been to the Mountaintop…”

This is our last week of Capricorn. The Sun enters Aquarius next Wednesday, January 20th. Then we will enter the Gate of Aquarius, sign of World Servers. Capricorn prepares us for the final two zodiacal signs. Aquarius, where we ‘serve.” And Pisces, where we “save.” Each of the signs impacts our evolutionary journey offering new revelations and new tasks. The twelve zodiacal signs, twelve Labors of Hercules, the Seven Rays and the twelve planets are dedicated to humanity’s enlightenment, upliftment and evolution (Path of Return). Together they form the “Lighted Way.”

Capricorn, sign of the mountaintop, offers us the truth about our origins and identity. We are the Daughters & Sons of God, imbued with love, intelligence, courage & strength. We are together Servers & Saviors of humanity. We are the Diamond Light. After a long journey (Aries to Capricorn) we reached the mountaintop, resting in the light of the Rising Sun. Gradually, from the valleys below, we began to hear increasingly the cries of suffering humanity. Eventually and together, we realized when Capricorn ended, we would return to Earth to help humanity. Our words as Disciples this week absorbing the Light of the Sun is, ”Next week we re-enter the Cancer Gates – returning to form and matter. Then the Gate of Aquarius appears, Aquarius, where we Serve humanity. On the mountaintop, and on this last week of Capricorn, our words as Disciples, speaking together, absorbing the Light of the Rising Sun are, “Lost are we in Light Supernal yet we know that on this Light we will turn our backs.” Entering Aquarius, to serve. And later, Pisces, to save.

We remember the words of the great leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. (Capricorn), “I have been to the mountaintop & I’ve seen the future (the Promised Land).” King possessed the qualities of the Disciple – joy, courage, vision, insight and steadfast devotion to the people. King, with the one-pointed focus of the unicorn, was also the “scapegoat, the sacrificial lamb & the awakened one.” (MLK birthday is observed Monday, January 18.)
