Esoteric Astrology as news for week of August 15-21, 2013
This is our last week of Leo, sign of the “burning ground.” Leo does not stream into any planets (as other signs do). Leo instead streams through three fires of the Sun – the Central spiritual Sun (cosmic fire), the Heart of the Sun (Solar Fire), and the rays of the Sun (fire by friction). And directly into our hearts to create the Will-to Good.
During Leo our love, strength, courage and service are tested (the “burning ground”) individually and globally. It is only through such tests that our personality (individual & humanity’s) calls out to the Soul for help and direction. For Leo is the sign of the Soul. Through the tests our personality is transformed, sensitized and refined. The purifying fires and testing create in us (especially Leo) great sensitivity – 1) to the external environment, 2) to our personality wishes and desires, 3) to the Soul, 4) to Spiritual Will.
Leo helps us identify our gifts and abilities as individuals. When these are recognized, we Gather our gifts (Leo), turn toward Aquarius, the shadow self, and become World Servers. This completes Leo. We celebrate this at Tuesday’s full moon (28 degrees Aquarius/Leo). Join us for this blue moon celebration of personality/Soul fusion, everyone.
ARIES: What is occurring in your love life. Relationships, partnerships, marriage are most important now. You’re attractive to many, and if not committed, marriage opportunities come your way. Your tasks at this time are to extend a helping hand, restore balance, be cooperative, see both sides of the issues, adapt, all of which soothe your nerves. You must have intellectual stimulation and beautiful surroundings. Watch “The Artist is Present” (film). Watch it. Find yourself in it.
TAURUS: You become more discriminating and detail-oriented. You fix and fuss about these days, cleaning, tending, and creating an orderly environment. You’re very concerned with your health, paying attention to rest, diet, schedules and hygiene. Perhaps you’re also tending to the animal kingdom, attempting to make them happy. Try not to over-analyze or be overly critical. Allow everyone their points of view, ways of adaptation, choices. Then the flow of love is assured.
GEMINI: You may feel a fixed and ardent affection for others. In the days and weeks to follow you might find yourself being a bit more dramatic than usual, needed a more of the spotlight, more appreciation, acknowledgement and recognition. This is good. Ask for these. It’s a passing situation but very vital to your state of mind, heart and well-being. You’ve become a Leo for a while.
CANCER: It would be good for you to hug more. To hug everyone you come into contact with (if close with them). It displays the quality and depth of nurturing. People are not touched often. Your touch will soothe and care for them, providing nourishment in ways not often experienced. Truly you understand being sensitive and needing touch. Continue, when you can, to offer food and shelter to those in need. That’s means all your friends.
LEO: You will experience an unusual need for change, a variety of experiences, information, movements and excitement. Leo is a fixed sign with fixed ways of being. But you’re also fire. Three fires to be exact and sometimes they flare up (like now) and your curiosity flares up too, along with the need for freedom. You might find yourself traveling more, on the phone or emails a lot, writing, being literary, telling jokes, playing with words. This situation does not last. Enjoy it.
VIRGO: As you’ve come to a natural starting point for beginning new projects, you’ll initiate new things in the coming months. It’s best to work alone because many new ideas will enter your mind and you need a contemplative state of mind to recognize, integrate and understand them. These ideas have the purpose of refining you, creating a cheerful environment, and harmonizing all disharmonies. Observe quietly and carefully.
LIBRA: Something different overcomes you in the upcoming weeks. A deep sensitivity and state of compassion, of understanding what you’ve never understood before about others, of stepping into another’s shoes and sensing their grief, misunderstandings and losses they’ve experienced. You identify, perhaps with a bit of shock. Learning of these things you take steps to remedy any distances, disappointments and loneliness resulting from your behaviors toward them. This is a new reality.
SCORPIO: You become a bit rebellious. You want to break from the past. You say “I won’t!” to regulations and rules and anything you consider encroaching upon your individuality. You like people and people like you. However, you choose carefully who your friends are. One or two perhaps. Perhaps. You like the unusual, the eccentric, the artistic (people). They help you expand into the arts and the social world in ways you cannot alone. Underlying all relationships is friendship.
SAGITTARIUS: Emotional security means status, wealth and success. At least these things are important to you now. Perhaps not always. Maybe not in the future. But now, they’re important. There’s some sort of holding back occurring for you at this time. Especially when in pubic. This is good. You’re protective. It also helps you maintain control and a certain level of power. You’re composed and disciplined. Try not to be too cold with others. You could be at this time. Don’t be.
CAPRICORN: You’re optimistic, honest and open, moral, ethical and philosophical. You’re having an adventure concerning long distance travel. You may not be traveling but something from far away is providing you with knowledge, experiences, new tastes, a new language and you feel enjoyment and at home. Something religious, perhaps religious music, needs to be played around you. Kirtan, Gregorian or Tibetan chanting. You always think, “Don’t worry, be happy.” OK. We’ll try it.
AQUARIUS: At times your cool demeanor that detaches easily from all situations can become rather intense, serious, possessive and secretive. You feel everything with great depth, able to see all points of view. Sometimes in love affairs you’re not sure who you can trust and for how long. You’re capable of being a devoted lover. Once you’re betrayed, however, that love is lost forever. You like mysteries, things hidden. You are an art piece – a found object of self.
PISCES: Having someone special is most important to you. Actually you need this for your sense of survival. You’re learning compromise, adaptability and cooperation. As you learn you teach others. Your senses tell you when something is out of balance. During this time it’s important to find solitude so you can feel your sensitivity, which all of us have, but few recognize. Creativity emerges from sensitivity. Our creativity is what saves us. We emerge out of the Matrix.
