Esoteric Astrology as news for week April 4-10, 2013
There are four luminaries (Sun, Mars, Venus, Uranus) in the fire sign of Aries this week. By Wednesday, there will be five as moon joins the Sun in the first new moon of spring.
Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. Monday is the Annunciation. Wednesday is the Aries new moon (20 degrees). “Go forth into matter” is the personality-building seed-thought of Aries. Over and over, lifetime after lifetime we use the Mars energy and the fiery impulse of Aries to return to Earth, anchor ourselves into a new life, learn more about form and matter, the personality dominating.
At the new moon we plant our biodynamic gardens with new (organic) seeds. As the moon waxes (builds in light) toward the Full Moon Wesak Festival (March 25), the Buddha Taurus solar festival, the seeds begin to grow fiercely, seeking both starlight and sunlight.
During Divine Mercy Sunday, the Mercy of God pours into the Earth. Mercy, an “interior form of Love,” reaches into every human sorrow, sadness and misery, all lostness and ignorance. Mercy uplifts each human (and kingdom), re-establishes quality and value of life. We are “found again,” restored to worth, significance, usefulness and meaning. Mercy recognizes the good within us always remains intact.
At the Annunciation, Angel Gabriel appears to a young woman (Pisces Age, 2,000 years ago) informing her in nine months she will give birth to a World Savior. Today (Aquarian Age, two thousand years later), we, the human family, are the World Savior waiting to be born.
ARIES: You’ve been in a cycle of quiet where matters from the past have time to be assessed. You hesitate to come forth with ideas as you stand behind veils and curtains, in shadows of contemplation and meditation. Dropping forever things no longer useful, you examine what in your life is needed in the future. Guilt is not allowed. Only that which prospers you and humanity. Solitude will be required for a while.
TAURUS: Such brightness and light radiate from your constant depth of thought and research, explaining unusual ideas that impact and help create the future. It’s most important to share with others. Hopefully you have a group to talk with and who listens. Hopefully they stimulate an explanation of your discoveries. It’s important to create long-term goals. Use the Permaculture template.
GEMINI: Wherever you are out and, you will need to communicate with more depth and awareness. You will be held accountable for what you say and how you say it. Should others share inner feelings or secrets with you, respond with compassion and understanding. Use your natural authority to provide them with ease. Remember what you project, returns ten-fold. Be approachable. Your opinion matters. It can provide goodness or it can destroy (others).
CANCER: You have vision and great ideals. With these you attempt to have perspective concerning your past and future. What you’d really rather do is travel, climb a
mountain, even a little hill, but with good boots on. I want to warn you to have your vehicles check and fixed before taking off to parts unknown to discuss different philosophical ideas. Nothing about your life is usual now. Even your dreams are beautiful.
LEO: You’ve reached into the realm of the intuition. Looking up from the depths of your life you gaze at the stars for signs and direction. You observe others, seeking to understand their values, assessing how they use resources. It’s an excellent time for future financial planning. In terms of your money, it’s important to also be aware of if, how and where, your money is being used to support ethical businesses.
VIRGO: You seek to cooperatively communicate with those close to you (friends and partners). You want personal interactions, to share personal history. There’s comfort and clarity when interacting this way. At times you will attempt to negotiate agreements, at other times you’re the counselor, creating a situation of mediation with best friends. You advise others to be peaceful. You learn about mercy and feel true goodness.
LIBRA: Notice how intuitive you’ve become, understanding the unspoken, that which is hidden behind the outer words, that which tells you the truth of all matter. This information allows you to consider everyone else’s deep needs, beginning with your own. Allow yourself to always hear opposing views. Libra is the sign of choice, but only after all facts are known and comprehended. Someone loves you.
SCORPIO: You’ve begun to sort out, assess and organize all levels of daily life. It’s time also to tend to health issues, scheduling (with no personal planets retrograde) physical and emotional check ups, including the care of your vehicle(s). With work you become more logical and orderly, not allowing a scattering of energy, seeking new skills, greater activity and better communication. Efficiency and competency are your new keywords.
SAGITTARIUS: Your creative self-expression has become a powerful mental force. You observe your abilities and see that they are good. You consider your many ideas and see that you are clearly creative. You enjoy your sense of humor and ways of communicating. You seek to compete to show off your intelligence capacities. Your spontaneity gives rise to recognition by others. You swell with pride. That’s good. This all passes soon.
CAPRICORN: You concentrate in a state of solitude to accomplish some sort of work, mental or physical — a healing needed for you, the entire family, along with a reorganization of your domestic personal life. Be transparent with family members, rational, strict, yet loving. Be strong and constructive, providing needed guidelines. Direct your energy toward the home, family and personal needs. You will remember this time and your decisions as central to your future.
AQUARIUS: You will begin to feel a greater curiosity about other people and the town, village, neighborhood you live in. You’ll be chatting with others longer than usual, doing more errands, wanting to visit friends and relatives. You will feel busy, with varied interests. At times you may feel scattered. Take off your shoes (sometimes your clothes, too), and stand or lie on the Earth. This grounds, calms and centers mind and heart.
PISCES: When working with finances at this time you’re very practical. Assessing what is of value continues and defining much of your future. You become impatient with things frivolous, seeking to communication rational ideas. When you find mistakes, your mind reviews them over and over. This is how we learn — through mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes are expensive. Create a Visualization and Creative Imagination Journal. Write down all that you envision (need). Visualization evokes the creative imagination.
