Esoteric astrology as news for the week of January 22-28
We are in Aquarius now, the 11th gate, and another opportunity/path
to come to the "House of Light." Aquarius pours forth
the waters of life upon thirsty humanity. These waters are electrical,
signifying mental influences. Think fiber optics. They are not
the waters that represent emotions. But Aquarius can sometimes
be an emotional sign and one that can withdraw into the past
(Saturn ruler) instead of reaching into the present from the
future (Uranus ruler). For the disciple, having come down from
the mountaintop of Capricorn radiating light from the rising
sun, the time of Aquarius is one of service to humanity, formation
of group enterprises, and pondering on future hopes, dreams,
wishes and goals.
Has everyone been watching "The Apprentice," the
Donald Trump-produced TV show? It's quite interesting in terms
of group (Aquarius working structure) process. There are two
groups separated by gender and the competition between the groups
and the individuals to be the only one to mentor Donald Trump
is fierce. If the show is observed through the keen lens of the
Aquarian group ideal, much can be learned about how to and how
not to be in a group. It is also good to note if and how each
participant serves either self and/or humanity.
The keynote of Aquarius is purification (not self-serving) in
order to be able to save the world in Pisces. Hercules, the world
disciple representing all of humanity, had the task of cleaning
out (purifying) the stables of accumulated calf dung (ancient
evil or terrorism in our present world). These stables (the world),
owned by the king of Neptune (emotions) held the debris (ignorance,
past beliefs, judgments, etc.) of former ages. The task for Hercules
was rather daunting, but, through keen investigation and observation,
Hercules realized that by breaking down the walls (barriers of
separateness) that held the debris and by diverting two rivers,
the Alpheus (River of Life) and the Penues (River of Love), he
could fill the stables with rushing torrents of water, sweeping
away the long-accumulated debris which had laid a pestilence
(fear, havoc, things out of order, etc.) upon the kingdom (our
Within a single day Hercules performed this impossible task.
His reward? Banishment from the ancient kingdom (personality
state of reality) and entrance into the "House of Light,"
the next kingdom called the "Kingdom of God." Our task
during Aquarius? Removing barriers of separation and pouring
the light of life and love toward all of Earth's kingdoms. Then
we earn the jewel of Aquarius.
The week: Thursday is still under the shadow of Wednesday's Aquarius
new moon. Friday is void-of-course till 1:29 p.m. (PST) when
moon enters the compassionate sign of Pisces. The day is expansive
due to Jupiter influences. Saturday is nebulous. Sunday is v/c
all day till 7:06 p.m. when the moon enters vital and fiery Aries.
Monday we find hidden and valuable things. Tuesday is quirky
and unusual and lacking nurturing unless we concentrate on what
sustains both ourselves and others. Wednesday is Taurus moon.
We seek comfort, nourishment and the first green tulip shoots
emerging from the earth.
ARIES: What important people must be seen and what efforts
will sustain your goals? What honors do you deserve and how do
you solidify your necessary credit? These are other business
questions occupy your mind as you also determine how to tend
to family adequately. Careful organization of agendas helps.
One-pointed goals, too.
TAURUS: Should you be contacting others at a distance, tending
to future matters that could be legal and governmental? Do you
find yourself constantly changing plans, listening to the views
of others and attempting to speak but to no avail? All progress
is slow. Things need deep pondering. Spiritual matters matter.
Then everything passes.
GEMINI: Something's secret and hidden. Maybe it's your gifts
you've kept tucked away from other's eyes for so long that even
you've forgotten them. But this can't last forever. Think on
this. In the meantime, money matters take up much time. Debts,
legacies, daily expenditures must be tended to and all illusions
must be banished. What are they?
CANCER: You think about a change of environment due to a change
of interests. You look for friendlier associates, give up the
goal of leading everyone, learn compassion and impartiality,
and then you're recognized. How interesting that when we finally,
usually through despair, stop pushing the river, it flows right
through us. Tend to all duties.
LEO: There has been over the past months constant need to
tend to colleagues and all those you work with. There has been
a need for efficiency, stabilizing of ideas, and maintenance
of work goals. New methods of work, therefore, must now be established.
The first and personal change must be focus on your health. Pets
are in the news now due to Jupiter in Virgo. Their health and
well-being seems to be your health and well-being. Nourish yourself
VIRGO: Maintain your usual ability to be responsible. In the
meantime, stop worrying, which seems to be your natural state
of mind. Trust that you can bring good fortune into your life
and to those you love simply by allowing the river of life to
run all by itself. There are untold, yet different than you expect,
opportunities coming your way. You are your own bright light.
LIBRA: Something's completed, something's improved (maybe
your yard and garden), and something comes together (family?).
Show extreme patience with elders. This is practical advice that
assists you in achieving your objectives. Take care of your money
with more efficiency and don't argue with anyone anymore. That's
SCORPIO: Amidst short trips visits to neighborhoods and small
towns in search of friends and family, you'll begin a correspondence
that may last for a very long time exchanging ideas, hopes, wishes,
beliefs and opinions. Do everything in a new way, commit yourself
to an adventure, and let others figure out their own problematic
situations. You can listen, but only for awhile.
SAGITTARIUS: We simply must figure out how you can have financial
mastery and superior ability with gaining income. The first step
is improving the services you offer, having courage to accept
nothing as failure, and bestow gifts on others in the form of
recognition and praise. Do you need to purchase something important?
Do nothing with haste, especially if monetary. Grasp at nothing,
also. You'll need courage for all of this.
CAPRICORN: Definition and identity of self comes through your
ability to lead through effective communication and compassionate
understanding. Great leaders (and parents) do not lead simply
with rules. Instead they lead by assisting others in understanding
their behavior and providing guidelines. This is your ultimate
task. This renews the life spirit of others. And yours, too.
AQUARIUS: You may embark upon a time in which you only see
your limitations. This is necessary at times. It may include
self-analysis and investigation into the how and why of your
actions. You will feel confidential about yourself, hidden, mysterious,
unseen. Do not worry about this. It's natural and it's temporary.
Don't be discouraged.
PISCES: You will desire to end all people, ideas, events,
areas of interest, and associations that no longer have any use
in your life. This is Uranus, planet of revolution and all things
new, entering Pisces. You eliminate old ideas, solutions, answers,
emotions, and anyone clinging. You have no patience anymore.
This is good. Let your revolution begin!
