Sun enters Taurus Thursday. Saturday’s a new moon, and Sunday’s Earth Day with Mercury and Uranus connecting Aries (all things new). A message is available for humanity concerning the Earth (a conscious Being) concerning our present future, which we, World Servers, must create. Mercury (Raphael and Hermes, the Healers) will help. The Great Invocation, the great Mantram of Direction for Humanity, was given at the 1945 June full moon festival (after WW II). Its purpose is, with humanity’s help, to “Restore the Plan on Earth.”
The Great Invocation protects humanity (“sealing the door where evil dwells”) and summons Forces, greater than humanity, to help “restore the Law of Ancient Dominating Good”, which lies behind all God created on Earth. This law is now in peril. Only the spiritual wills of humanity, calling it forth, can bring this law into manifestation again.
Like our Earth, whose needs and presence are forgotten, there’s an Earth point on every astrology chart. It’s in the sign opposite the Sun sign. In Esoteric Astrology, the Sun represents our personality; Moon our past; Ascendant our Soul purpose. The Earth point is our “shadow,” which must be acknowledged, tended to and integrated. Then there is wholeness. Our beloved Earth is our “shadow.”
ARIES: Your shadow is Libra, the art and creation of Right Human Relations. Aries develops individuality without cooperation. Libra develops self with other, in cooperation. Integration for Aries occurs in relationship and partnership. Observe your behavior with others. Are you always the leader, the initiator, or do you assist others in discovering their leadership and initiating qualities? Know that “what begins in Aries, resolves itself in Libra.”
TAURUS: Your shadow is Scorpio, the sign of the Disciple, deep waters, testing trustworthiness of others. As you seek the Art of Living, Scorpio seeks the Art of diving deep, dying, regenerating, inviting everyone to join in. While you seek the comforts of everything, Scorpio is often living life behind closed protective doors, too shrouded to go out. Taurus loves Scorpio but often, unable to see in the dark, doesn’t know it yet.
GEMINI: You seek Sagittarius to take you on an adventure far away (from your neighborhood). You sometimes wish you could play music, prepare food and travel like Sag and not always gathering information that overwhelms, sometimes infuriates, and causes confusion if love isn’t around. You long for Sag’s “focus.” They never fall off the mountain. You’re secretly and emotionally falling down everywhere, blinded, yet often happy, about where you’re going.
CANCER: We’re always unconsciously attracted to our opposite signs. You wish you could bring forth all that’s practical. You’re practical’s opposite — loving and nurturing, environments piled high with boxes and baskets, trinkets everywhere and the stove bubbling over with soups and stews. You seek the Capricorn clearing-out method of “throw everything out, turn off the heat, tear up the rug, and give everything away,” way of life. It is not nurturing. It’s not you! But a tiny part is!
LEO: We gaze at our opposites. They seem to have all the attributes we seem to lack. You, the heart-felt, need to be recognized, praised, and applauded for anything you create, because it identifies you, one. You gaze across the room to the Aquarian — the foot loose, fancy-free, friendly acquaintance to everyone (friend to none) — floating happily here and there, giving things away, putting up art shows, taking them down as if heedless to time. Where is their love you ask?
VIRGO: Whereas you are detailed to the minute, Pisces swoons with any detail. It wounds them. Whereas you can order and organize everything, Pisces doesn’t even know most things exist to be organized. As you are able to serve the self, Pisces knows it must serve and save the world first. Pisces has no self. Sometimes you wish you were a Pisces. All this detail work makes the eyes dim and tired. Next life.
LIBRA: While you focus your entire life energy on relationships — how to have them, keep them, maintain and tend to them — your Aries side scoffs, thinking your relationship needs are dependencies and humiliating. But you know you cannot exist without one. Libra needs the “other” in order to understand how to be in relationships. Life for Libra means two, not one (like Aries). Poor alone Aries, Libra thinks. But then senses a lack of freedom. Interesting.
SCORPIO: You never fall into the illusion of others providing for you. You provide everything, at all times, for yourself, by yourself. You are the “triumphant warrior.” However, sometimes you peek out from your closed black curtains to see how Taurus, over there practicing the Art of comfortable Living, is doing and sometimes you wish you were a Taurus. It’s hard being in self-denial most of the time in order to protect yourself. Or drowning in dark waters. Perhaps you need a couch.
SAGITTARIUS: Always on the road, even in your mind, seeking the next place, goal, project, plan, person … anything keeping you moving, arrow-like, focused on what’s ahead. You wish you were Gemini sometimes, provincial, afraid to wander away from the neighborhood, content to sip on local flowers, never venturing up Sir Hillary’s Mount Everest, which signified a spiritual ascent for humanity. You’re always where the greatest need for you is. You’re needed, you ask?
CAPRICORN: You are, yes, practical and methodical, can turn chaos into order, can supervise and shape up a crowd of hungry party-goers with a baleful glance, but really what you need is some chicken soup and matzo balls from Cantors made by Cancer hands with a bit of warm heart thrown in. While you’re known for resourcefulness and sturdy boots that climb ladders to the top, you also need the kindness Cancer’s emotional support offers. Mother, where are you?
AQUARIUS: You don’t think you need anything but the future. But really you need a bit of a warm Leo’s heart in order to catch (and keep) a full time partner that becomes a marriage (someday, maybe). While you prize your freedom, you gaze at Leo’s circle of friends supports their creativity and wish you could have a bit of Leo’s drama in your cold neon-lit life. Seek out a Leo. Tell them you’re in need.
PISCES: While you’re listening to the Mind of God, while you see devas (fairies, light beings) and understand all things mystical, as you “slouch toward Bethlehem” with the Magi hoping to catch the holy child before His flight to Egypt, you gaze upon Virgo, gestating a new state of awareness with poise, neatness, self-control, composure and dignity. While you are rumpled, disheveled, sweating, lost and wondering where you came from. You call to Virgo. It’s your wound sometimes.
