Money Standard, Values & Principles, Scorpio & United Nations Day
What were the results of Santa Cruz’s meeting on alternative currency? During Venus (money) retrograde in Scorpio (everyone’s), money is at the forefront. Therefore we need to follow the worldwide economy, learn about the different currency wars. The dollar’s losing ground daily. The G20 meets November in Korea. There’s talk of a new money standard, no longer the dollar, the creation of one world currency. These are exciting times, with revolution a probability. Even if we don’t understand economics & finances, we must try and follow as best we can. Revolution only comes after everyone’s truthfully informed. Two Scorpio events this week – Full moon (Friday) Scorpio/Taurus, and Sun entering Scorpio (Saturday). Thursday we seriously tend to tasks while experiencing a certain sadness, choosing time & energy efficiency lest we fall down into a narrow state of discouragement. At first we’re lifted up only to plummet earthward with a practical jolt. Let’s focus these unpredictable energies by consciously preparing for Friday evening’s Full moon, (last degree, 29:33 Scorpio/Libra, 6:38 pm, Pacific time). Join us, the New Group of World Servers, in meditation at the Full moon by reciting the Soul & Great Invocations together. Saturday, Sun enters Scorpio, sign of Discipleship, the Nine Tests (from Mars), deep waters of mystery and intrigue. Sunday is the United Nations 65th birthday. The UN was built on spiritual principles and universal values – peace, human rights, human dignity, human worth, justice, respect, good neighborliness, and freedom. The UN founders and UN leaders of today use these spiritual principles & values as their guide. As we each become aware of these spiritual principles and universal values, perhaps we can begin to use them to guide us as well. (more on the United Nations at www.nightlightnews.com)
ARIES: Be prepared for a feeling of testing, a continual sense of being watched, graded, guided and being prepared for further responsibility, especially in terms of tending to others’ finances and resources. Intimacy may be an issue, either you seek or reject it. You need to study the Ancient Mysteries (the foundations being astrology). Your questions are answered there.
TAURUS: You seek more than usual depth in relationship. Or you become silent and secretive, seeking your own counsel, seeking intimacy of spirit, following your own needs without considering the other. It’s best though to communicate loved ones, informing them of your inner thoughts, hopes, wishes so you can work together more efficiently. You think there’s no money. It’s all around you.
GEMINI: As your mind works overtime, you realize lots of work, at first not obvious, must be accomplished. If you look in corners, closets, under, over and above, in garages, storage units, your car(s), you’ll discover what needs eliminated so transformation and regeneration can come about. There’s special work to do with relationships, children, small animals and gardens, all needing play, color, communication, new intentions, a re-commitment (from you).
CANCER: You feel worried and anxious about family members, concerned about their choices, abilities, resources, lives. There may be a family member in a state of transition. You worry about someone female, perhaps a daughter, mother, sister. You know at a moment’s notice you’ll travel anywhere to help. In the meantime, bake sugar cookies, pies, breads, dumplings and casseroles. You need soothing and gardening.
LEO: You need to head over to Cancer’s home and eat. Then you need respite from the extreme amounts of work you’re encountering. Sometimes you don’t know why you’re doing this work. It seems you need more art, whether it’s yours or another’s. Relationships are either nebulous or too strict for words. Something usually hidden at home becomes illumined.
VIRGO: With Mercury, your personal messenger, traveling through a trinity of signs, your mind must be extremely active, focusing first on your self needs, then on relationships then a perceptive intensification and depth occurs. As your words become very serious, almost mysterious you become internal to allow all parts of yourself to cooperate, ruminate and become intimate with the truth.
LIBRA: Your New Year has begun, Libra (Sun, rising signs). Do focus upon your values, past, present, future, all issuing forth from self-awareness the needs of humanity. What’s most important is assessing your financial picture – how you use money, how your money supports family and those in need, and how money emotionally supports your way of life. For the next month appreciate all that you have, all people and things small and large. Love comes from gratitude.
SCORPIO: The veils are dropping between realities. The purpose is so humanity can see more expanded realities. In the meantime, you/we are to be anthropologists, keenly observing life and people everywhere. Observing quietly with curiosity allows us to understand two polarities; what’s staged (unreal) to push the masses to rely on government energies that are spiritual in intent, supporting the Forces of Light, building the new reality as the old is destroyed. You have this ability to discern.
SAGITTARIUS: You’ve been on a retreat from your usual daily life, plans, agendas and responsibilities. Did you eat well, take it easy, do personal research, work on private projects, ponder upon needs and the values that emerge from self-assessment. Also, a distance was created allowing you more perspective about how you’re living life, what pleases you, how to better be in relationships. You may meet someone soon. Prepare.
CAPRICORN: Everything social calls. However, you don’t want to emerge into the world before assessing goals, hopes, wishes and priorities in terms of what you give others and how you’re perceived and given to in return. You are valuable. Others respect you even if unable to admit this. Often when greatness enters a group, there can be resistance. Why? People cannot absorb the Sun’s light streaming through great people. Focus on fun, less activity, less responsibility.
AQUARIUS: Your creativity is vital at this time and apparent to the world. Notice how well you’re completing tasks and displaying special abilities. For the next month ponder upon what your work and career need for future success. This is a time of assessing these things on inner levels. It’s not a good time to initiate new plans, but to consider them. If you must move, ponder upon what your daily domestic needs are. Write them down.
PISCES: It could be that making contact with others doesn’t work. Making contact so love and understanding are released is important to you. However, others don’t often think like you. Compassion rules the life of Pisces. Everyone is not a Pisces. You must stand alone this month and next. Focus upon study, reading, art, music, ideas becoming ideals within you. Create on paper (color, ink, drawing, painting, sculpture, etc.) your next endeavor. Include several geodesic domes and the idea of the Commons.
