Esoteric Astrology as news for week September 18-24, 2008
Autumn Equinox, World Peace Day, Mercury Retrograde
Sunday, September 21st, is the United Nations International Day of Peace. Many religious and spiritual leaders, writers and pacifists expound upon and advise us to bring peace into our world, but there is rarely an explanation on exactly how peace is created. It is important, therefore, on this UN Day of Peace to remember the esoteric equation for Peace. It is a scientific process and very simple.
In order to bring about Peace (a living process) we must begin with intentions for Goodwill, which then create (releases) Right Human Relations (humanity’s task is to learn to make intelligent and loving contact with all kingdoms – for contact releases Love), which in turn produces, generates and builds the process called “Peace.” Without applying this equation, Peace is not possible. The United Nations therefore calls world governments, nations and each individual to intentionally cultivate Goodwill, which leads to Right Relations, which creates world Peace. But what is Peace?
Peace contains the components of understanding and sharing. Peace is therefore the result of understanding and sharing and not the origin of them as is often implied. We don’t begin with Peace. We begin with intentions of Goodwill.
Autumn (Fall Equinox) begins Monday, as the Sun rests at the equator. We have on this first Libra day equal light (day) and dark (night). Soon humanity’s festivals of light will begin – reminding us that within darkness there is hidden Light.
Wednesday, (12:17 am), Mercury retrogrades at (22.49 degrees Libra) until October 15th. Mark your calendars. We all know the Mercury retro parameters by now, yes?

ARIES: A sort of tension seems to descend upon you. Maintain awareness and do not ignore this pressure or become impatient. This tension can and should be used for creative purposes. Should conflicts arise with close relationships, be more cooperative, use intentional Goodwill, yet preserve discipline and self-assertion. Enemies may appear. You will be tested in maintaining balance.
TAURUS: Each day you tell us you are working hard on the mountain of tasks set before you. You suspend all pleasure and focus on each day’s labor, some of which is surprising for each day contains unexpected and unforeseen challenges. Tend to your health carefully, resisting any foods, drinks, people and/or events that would lower or imbalance your immune system.
GEMINI: Your behavior looks to others as if you’ve become a Leo, expressing yourself with an “I am” focus, almost beating your chest with self-proclamations and need for recognition. Self-denial, discipline, and setting aside any gratifications are not your strengths at this time. However, so that you don’t become overly aggressive, invite others to enter your sport of self-awareness. Relationship-wise you’re the best (right now).
CANCER: Is there great activity with family and where you’re living? Are you working hard around the house or interacting with relatives and getting much accomplished? Agree with everyone. This neutralizes the possible unanticipated conflicts that could arise. If you are living with parents, you’ll want to be free. Don’t be irritable. Try to cook and bake as much as you can. This directs the red Martian energy you feel.
LEO: You have many good ideas – a result of your Ray 1 & 5 mind. However, you can become prideful, creating polarized arguments instead of sharing information. This is a phase. Observe the results and how you feel. The freewill we have at this time is limited to our choosing actions and attitudes. And free will only occurs when we are aware, awake and observant. Each day’s pulse, beat and rhythm will be elevated. You will work on balance.
VIRGO: Money is special, isn’t it? It helps us have what we need and later what we want. It allows us to choose this or that, to have possessions of beauty, to make purchases, to nurture our body and spirit, and if used wisely money helps us get work done, helps us accomplish a goal, allows us to share, and to help others in need. Money is made out of the mineral and plant kingdoms. We thank them. And we thank you, too, for all that you share and give.
LIBRA: Do be sensitive to others because your energy is very impressive, vigorous and active. Without sensitivity you can create relationship difficulties. Not inclined at this time to bend to others’ needs, it’s best to work alone allowing you freedom and independence. Careful of illness or accidents. You could overwork and be less than aware of your body’s requirements. You will undertake, achieve and accomplish much at this time.
SCORPIO: Allow all difficult experiences to simply pass you by. It seems the world’s acting on unconscious patterns, which undermine your intentions. You could feel frustration, and irritation. To ease this situation work a bit in solitude and consider everything you do as service to humanity. Then all experiences benefit your well-being. Radiate, even in times of unpleasantness, Goodwill.
SAGITTARIUS: Your thoughts are toward the future, where hopes, wishes and dreams take up most of your mental activity. You want to do things today that summons your potential. Don’t attempt to be alone all the time. Although you are quite independent, there’s a need for balance by interacting with those you trust and have fun with. Therefore, coordinate your needs with the needs of others. And do rigorous physical workouts.
CAPRICORN: Identify your most promising goal and ambition and watch as you work hard and independently, with initiative and great effort. You work best on your own and anyone’s efforts to stop you will feel like a threat. Very carefully and subtly align your interests with everyone around you and help will suddenly appear. Do not see life at this time as a challenge. See everything as opportunity. Study growing, harvesting, storing and preserving foods.
AQUARIUS: Do all you can to expand your mind. As you create new dimensions of contact and communication you share your experiences and beliefs with others. You need not push others to agree with your thinking. They already do. Young people come into your life. They have freer points of view concerning life. Assess these newer points of view. What you believe in now frames the future. And do everything within the law.
Pisces: As your life continues its erratic motion, information given to you is absorbed quickly and it has a profound effect on your mind. You may find yourself in solitude so that deep thinking can occur. You reflect on death at times, on those who have passed over. These thoughts give your life great perspective. Much of the past seems to be shadowing you. A new and better relationship with a parent or someone important to you grows daily. You’re doing your Work.
