We have a week of planetary shifts: celebrations, a new moon and a secret birthday. Thursday, Mercury and Chiron team up in Pisces, the sign of compassion and saving the world. Late Saturday night, the Sun enters Pisces, showering the Earth with the “Light of the World.”
Pisces light reveals the Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter (ignorance). All of Earth’s kingdoms absorb this “saving” Pisces light.
During Pisces, humanity (we, designated world servers and saviors) is clearly informed of its sacred tasks — “to save ourselves in order to survive, sustain and thrive into the new world.” We must actually create that new world ourselves, through the formation of communities in every town and city, state and nation throughout the world. Who hears and understands this message?
Monday is President’s Day (Lincoln & Washington’s birthday). Tuesday is new moon of Pisces (“Go forth into matter,” the Pisces personality keynote) and festive Mardi Gras.
Wednesday (secret birthday) is Ash Wednesday, first day of Lent — 40 days/night of preparation and purification for Easter/Resurrection and the first (of three) Spring Festival(s) of Aries.
Our actions during Lent imitate Mars (and Mercury) retrograde activities. We grow in quiet reflection, contemplation, study and knowledge, which purify and enable us to participate in the spring festivals. The Three Spring Festivals direct the creative tasks of humanity that, over time, “Restore the Plan on Earth.” (Read more news this week at www.nightlightnews.com).
ARIES: A quiet, peaceful change comes into your life. You become sensitive, compassionate and sympathetic toward everyone, especially those in need. You’re drawn to things mystical, religious, spiritual, meditative, functioning behind the scenes and the why isn’t apparent. You seek forgiveness while offering it. You allow no persecutions of any kingdom. Here your Aries comes forth.
TAURUS: All that you do, consider and ponder upon has to do with groups, friendships, organizations and the forming of community that restores and reforms society. You know what’s coming. You are concerned with hosting new ideas, creating collective objectives, helping others realize hopes, wishes and dreams that sustain life on earth. There is a mantram that is useful to say. “Let reality govern my every thought and truth be the master of my life.”
GEMINI: You can use mantram for Taurus, too, Gem. It’s very useful for the dissolution of glamours, not only the glamours of self but also when encountering the glamours (distortions, miasmas, illusions) of others. Eliminating glamours help us focus on accomplishing goals, helps us achieve a successful public life and allows for an honorable reputation. You have authoritative tasks to perform and an influential position to fulfill for the saving of humanity. You might begin to prepare now.
CANCER: The light of Pisces Sun is providing you with aspirations and high ideals to learn something new that develops a new level of consciousness leading to wisdom. Remember to never assume a position of knowing until it is experienced or its validity proven. You will expand your mind through travel and study; as well as a philosophy of encountering soil and the earth (gardening). Then you are to teach others. Be adventurous and experiential.
LEO: You search for your values. They have changed over the years. You explore the values of others, listening to their talk of sex, intimacy, money, death and regeneration. You discover your ability to diagnose illness in friends, extending this ability to pets. You like to be the detective, and for a while read mysteries that provide courage through conflict. Be not jealous or combative. You will lose. Life in the shadows for a while is best.
VIRGO: You find yourself through relationship interactions, whether intimate, close friends or those with whom you identify in the moment. You want to cooperate, seeking harmony within all situations so a sense of life-in-balance emerges. From the personal to the political, from social justice to world peace, you travel the range of relationships within the world of humanity’s endeavors. Do you remember the esoteric formula for peace?
LIBRA: You become practical in all ways, tending to daily necessities for self and others. You become the social worker for the world, using your gifts and capacities to create roles for others so they too can be of assistance and be of service. You make improvements wherever you go, tending to details, being scientific and concrete in your healing information. You drop all levels of criticism. You understand forgiveness.
SCORPIO: When observing you for a time, we sense a new level of dignity emanating from you. We also sense a new level of creative self-expression, which in time can lead the world in a new artform that restores the art of living to the world. Sometimes, you focus on happiness, things that entertain and are playful with games, children and/or sports. You speculate on ways resources can emerge into form and matter to be used in a new world. You meditate upon this daily.
SAGITTARIUS: Family continues to be your concern: creating, tending to, or writing about one. Your history is like a tree growing within you, its roots go deep; the trunk is your life force, and the leaves how you interact with the world. Realize how important parents were, whether they were good enough or not, all parents are “good enough” in terms of what we must learn. A radical thought. Moodiness may assail you. Take shelter.
CAPRICORN: You’re interested in new ways of communicating, expressing yourself and talking with family, friends, neighbors and siblings. Most important will be things literary and artistic, either in books, attending museums, music fests or simply reconsidering how to once again bring forth the arts. You love change now and are very adaptable. Realize that others around may not be. Restlessness can upset our organized and artistic apple cart. Draw your greenhouse.
AQUARIUS: During this month you will be asked to consider the values within yourself, your abilities, talents, resources and all possessions. You will realize you have vast resources, some of which you will want to give away. You will seek ways of making money and will find a state of reserved strength that sustains conservative yet liberal values. You will seek comfort and a new love to keep you warm.
PISCES: There’s a sense of well-being, exaltation and a radiant willingness in all that you do. You will initiate new ideas others will accept or reject. This is good. Controversy is good, calling forth the harmony at the core of chaos and conflict. The many heavenly lights in Pisces are creating a state of dignity, magnetism and confidence within. Handling all that Pisces is Mars retro in Virgo. Tend with care to diet and health care. Think green (plants, clothes, drinks, shoes, etc.).
