Esoteric Astrology as news for week Jan. 31-Feb. 6, 2008
This week, on Super Tuesday (February 5th), twenty states have their
primary elections. To choose which candidate to vote for, it is
important that we understand the needs of our county (seen through the
planetary transits affecting the U.S. chart) in the next four to eight
years and connect those needs with each candidate’s abilities. As
astrologers, we study the candidates’ charts seeking who (what signs)
would best navigate through the coming drops, swings and leaps of
change our country will experience. The next president will serve
through November 2012, a most important time for our Earth’s
well-being, just as the Mayan calendar ends (multiple cycles end, new
The U.S. chart (natal and progressed) for the next four years shows an
emphasis on Scorpio, sign of reorientation, regeneration, and
transformation. We need a president who can activate a true change of
leadership within our country, who understands our present times, can
initiate appropriate action, and assist humanity weather the
transformative political and economic storms with intelligence, grace
and courage. Two candidates demonstrate these capacities – Hilary
Clinton & Barack Obama. Hilary is a multiple-planets-in-Scorpio
candidate who has a helpmate with many planets in Libra (rebalance,
ambassador). Scorpio is the sign of not only knowing what to do with
other people’s finances but it is the sign that brings about
reorientation and Libra is the sign that appears during humanity’s
transitions. On the other hands, for deep and total change, the chart
of Senator Barack Obama shows that not only can he bring change but,
with his Mars is on the U.S. Neptune and his far-sighted vision, can
summon into activity the higher virtues of our country and its people.
A recently sighted bumpersticker: “I’m voting for Monica’s boyfriend’s
wife”. Read more on the reorientation, the sky, Pancake Day, Lent and
the week’s Celestial events at www.nightlightnews.com. I’ll see
everyone at the voting booths. Voting is a revolutionary act!
ARIES: Your public, professional and business interests will
accelerate and be emphasized. This will begin slowly and progresses
successfully as new ideas are formulated and new contacts are made in
the world. Do stay in touch with family, siblings, neighbors and
friends, especially now. What you seek to achieve brings you both ups
and down. Success is assured. You’ll become a Capricorn.
TAURUS: You know to be very careful with spending. For a bit of time
there may be a limited amount of money but since you know about money
more than any other sign (except Capricorn) you know how to reverse
all limitations. Do not worry should you encounter greater expenses in
the coming weeks. Your determination will change the outflow to inflow
and create financial stability.
GEMINI: Life becomes more serious as you ponder upon both small and
great philosophical questions. First tend to all finances, including
preparing for taxes, paying insurance and/or bills. The serious
thoughts you may have will be about resources shared with another,
seeking (or freeing yourself from) deeper intimacy, and the
appropriate use of your energy in order to have optimum health.
Discipline seems to be following you. Order your day with it.
CANCER: Soon you will begin to ask yourself how to interact with
others differently so that communications and interactions are more
effective, productive and caring. You are noticing your interactions
are not bringing you the satisfaction needed. You will also notice
greater compassion and kindness when confronted by another’s’ pain.
You will explain your pain. Comfort and healing will then begin.
LEO: In the coming months notice you developing greater efficiency
with time, managing detailed tasks, making decisions with greater
fluency, and organizing not only your reality but also the reality of
others. You will recognize more efficient structures are needed at the
workplace. It’s possible you will seek other job situations and
environments that are more oriented to healing modalities than to
simply business. Take care of your health.
VIRGO: During the Mercury retro refine the ideas that appeared to you
in the last several months and be ready as Sun enters Pisces to bring
them into the light of day. Notice your creative abilities are
assuming new forms. This will continue. You may think about a love
affair, children may enter your life, you may have a child yourself.
Mostly you’ll learn things never learned before. It’s a good, deeply
transforming creative time for you.
LIBRA: Your foundations (psychological, home, relationships, etc.) are
shifting. Home has somehow disappeared. You will not be homeless but
the moving about will have profound affects. Deep psychological
changes and insights occur concerning family, home, property,
ownership and everything domestic. You are determined to have your own
home. You will ask yourself where you belong, where home is, how
you’re reassured and what makes you safe and secure. A relationship
SCORPIO: You will seek to get what you want and need through the use
of your will power. But be very careful using this divine gift. Make
sure whatever you will is harmonious for everyone, that is serves the
greater good, and that it helps others. You will learn the secrets of
creation. You will seek a community. You will be called to teach,
write, publish and speak.
SAGITTARIUS: Now you begin a newer and better understanding of money,
resources, what you value, and what you’re worth (not the same as
self-esteem). Security and safety, unexplored till now, will appear
allowing an understanding of your true and present needs. You will
recognize in greater measure your abilities and gifts and where they
are best used. You will spend, invest, lend, and use your money in
ways that create prosperity. Slowly and assuredly.
CAPRICORN: You will become more aware of how you appear to the public,
what you look like in terms of behavioral characteristics. Although
you will identify that none of these are who you truly are, you will
want to be seen in the world as professional, at ease, attractive,
magnetic, and assured. You listen to what others say about you and if
they are very perceptive you understand they offered a gift to you
that transforms you and your enthusiasm and self-confidence grow.
AQUARIUS: The idea that a new economy is about to come forth will be
very apparent and you realize it would be good to pay attention to the
economic ups and downs occurring in the world. The past year has been
different, strange, unusual and at times difficult. A sense of
beneficence begins though you may not know why. Spend more time
daydreaming, resting, contemplating and being in retreat. From these
comes your future ways and means. Solutions will be highly original.
PISCES: As the coming months and years unfold you will find yourself
shifting priorities and direction. Your values, if you will observe
them, are continuing to change. What you thought you could never do,
you now consider. A dream comes true. What will it be? I don’t know
yet. You begin to set goals, knowing you can work to achieve them. You
have developed over the years a strong and centered focus. Continue to
review and assess priorities and needs. These will inform you of your
direction. A green summer deva will visit.
