Post #2 - Wednesday evening.
Gemini new moon festival meditation tomorrow.
We gather on inner levels at the following times -
7:30am west coast, 9:30am central, 10:30am east coast.
I will post the Labours of Hercules, the 3rd Gate tomorrow morning. The Soul Invocation, the Great Invocations (3).
And our Radiance Mantram. In the morning.
We join together on inner levels.
All day we will be aware of the Gemini new moon festival.
It prepares us for the Gemini Festival of Humanity, at the time of the Full Moon, June 9th. love, Risa

The Gemini Labour - the Apples & the Tree of Wisdom
"Send out the word to guard the sacred tree. Let Hercules unfold the power to search without discouragement, deception or too great a speed. Let perseverance now be called upon. He has done well so far." And thus the word went forth.

Far in a distant country grew the sacred tree, the tree of wisdom, and on it grew the golden apples of the Hesperides.

"Let Instability Do Its Work." Gemini's personality keynote.
Gemini Sun & Gemini Moon -
"Let instability do its work."
The personality building keynote of Gemini.
Mercury is the personality-building planet working with Gemini.
Allowing for all the vicissitudes to comes forth, the confusions, the chaos, the instabilities of daily life.

And....
....all of these, all the instabilities & confusions, have purpose.
We find that there is a great need for harmony, instead.
Eventually, we seek (cry out for) an ending of the instabilities.
So, the personality, weary, calls out for help. for surcease.
And the Soul, waiting, listening for eons & eons.....responds.
Lifts the personality up to the Soul, as the Soul also enters into form & matter.
And the Soul begins to direct the personality.
And everything then begins to adjust.
Adjustments are made in all that we do.
So the Soul's direction & presence can be in our lives always.
This is the story of the personality & the Soul.

Mercury
Wednesday, May 24, 2017. Mercury's day of the week.
Mercury offers us information.
Mercury is the Star of conflict - Ray 4, Harmony emerging through Conflict & Chaos.
Mercury is also the builder with Gemini of the Rainbow Bridge.
That Antakakarana (Sanskrit).
The Bridge from the personality to the Soul.
Mercury is the messenger.
Mercury is the personality building ruler (planet that works with) Gemini. (And of Virgo, too).

Moon
The moon v/c this afternoon & evening.
Early tomorrow morning, the moon enters Gemini.
Sun & Moon in Gemini.
Telling us that tomorrow we have the new moon of Gemini.

The new moon festival is at 4.47 degrees Gemini.
Where is that in everyone's chart - 4.47 degrees Gemini?
There (in that house in our charts) we see the changes, mutations & adjustments made - all that is necessary for the Soul to come in - we see in that house where the Soul-unfolding changes take place. This applies to each individual, to states, nations & countries, too.

Everything & everyone has an astrology chart.
The chart is our place of self-understanding & direction.

*****
Preparing
Today we prepare for tomorrow's new moon festival.
Tomorrow we will read the Labours of Hercules, the Gemini Labour. the 3rd Gate opening for Hercules.

*****
The Wind, Gemini is an Air sign
Let us not be "tossed by the Mercury/Gemini winds."
Let us, instead, "circulate with the wind."
Then "co-direct the wind."

*****
Responses
Note: following the guidelines given in the past days....
- what are the messages today, what is interesting, what is new, what is important to know? Why?

Precipitations, Artwork
Soon we will have the post of the Gemini protective precipitation of energies, from Ray 2 down into the Earth. For each one of us to draw & to post in our Gallery.

Love to everyone today.
Under the Light of Gemini.
Learning this & that, here & there, everywhere.
Like the wind.
Gemini - where the personality begins to wane & the Soul's light begins to brighten.

Bridgette TurnbullThere has been a lot of chaos lately and your reading reminds me this is how we learn, grow and become stronger. By becoming stronger we then can share with others during their time of chaos!

Anne Spriggs BirchFor some reason, what resonates with me is "let us not be tossed by the mercury/gemini winds, instead circulate with the winds and then co-direct the winds" It reminds me of the saying - Go With the Flow, which is something I've learned thru surfing. Sometimes you get a wave and you think you know what to do with it, but it's like the wave wants to send you in a different direction. You can fight it, or work with it and get a great ride.

Michelle MesserI don't know anything about my houses so not sure about influences as such but I do know that Mercury was in Aries when I was born...so it always makes me chuckle when I read that the star of conflict for me is in battering Ram....how cliche. My moon is in cancer (as are a lot of influences in my natal chart). My sun in Aries just all meshes and can create some steaminess... Either way, I now have adjusted my thoughts on the impact of a nations' charts and influences....these infiltrate my thinking more as I think of earth and the communities and geography and why a person is 'moved' to certain locations in specific times in his/her life. I feel 'expanded' as I learn these things.

Post #4 - the issue of privacy & not knowing what to post.
The issue of not knowing what to post.
Things I am hearing from many readers.
Regarding responses.
The questions I'm asking, the responses hoped for....
Simple questions, simple responses.
The Guidelines & questions are simple guidelines.
They are are not private questions....that require private answers.
Nor is anything private required from anyone.

The Questions....to focus the mind on the posts....
What is of interest?
What is new?
What questions are there?
What are the messages in the postings?
What is the purpose of the posting?
What did you learn?
What more do you want to learn about?
etc. etc.

It's a dialogue together.

The Ashramic Group works with transparency...we learn how to do this, how to be safe with each other, how to safeguard each other. How to trust each other.

If we look at the questions again that I pose.
There is nothing personal being required.

To accelerate our group Work.
To enter the Aquarian Age.
To move from Ray 6 - mystical, devotional, receiving.
Being always receptive.
To Ray 7 - intelligent, knowledgable, leading to Intuition.
A Group that is Active together.
Ray 7 - A new rhythm, a new template, a new archetype.
A new way of working together.

To evolve & expand together.
FB can evolve, too - love, Risa

4. Are there any questions?
5. What information was new?
6. Does this information connect with other knowledge or studies?

Dear Everyone who responded to my last posting.
I am will respond back.
Many wrote they didn't know how to respond.
I will repost Guidelines for Responding.
In most FB pages (not here), many people simple post on FB.
Quotes or ideas or thoughts they have.
W/out asking for responses.
But I am asking for responses.
Trying to use FB in a different way.
To create a College here.

To move forward & to evolve, we need to have an interaction with each other. There needs to be responses.
Or we get caught in an imbalanced relationships.

IThe Guidelines for responding are here.
They are simple.
The purpose is to deepen our thinking.
To focus the mind.
To no longer stay within the mystical realms of feeling.
But to "capture" the mind, to use the mind.
That is the purpose for the responses I am asking for.

Guidelines - How to Read a Text or Post.
The Questions....they are very simple questions.
They do not need an astrology chart or a book.
They are personal questions to readers.
We are all needing to learn how to respond to what we have read. We are all attempting to "build a new level of mind/Mind."
The Soul is on the mental plane.
We must build a new mind of focus & intelligence.
To lift up (build a bridge) to the Soul.
We cannot just take in information.
We must respond to the information.
This is an Action called Responding.
If we don't respond, the information is soon lost.

The Questions (how to respond)

1. What was interesting in what was read?
2. What were the main messages? List them.
3. What was the purpose for the information written?

6. Does this information connect with other knowledge or studies?
7. How does the information influence your life?
8. What more would you like to study concerning this information?

This is our College, our Ashram, our Temple of Learning.
We are now in the time of Gemini.
Gemini gathers information, ponders upon it, disperses it to the world.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury - information.
Mercury is Ray 4 (harmony through conflict & chaos)
Then by Venus - integrating the information.
Venus is Ray 5 - concrete & scientific knowledge.
The work we are doing here is a "science."
The Science of Response & of Building the Mind.

Gemini is also ruled by (spiritual ruler) by the Earth.
Earth is Ray 3 - Divine Intelligence.
I call forth the Divine Intelligence of everyone.

We anchor what we learn when we ponder upon it & then respond to it.
We are to move from Devotion (Ray 6) to Knowledge (Ray 5)
& anchoring that knowledge into the world through
Actions (Ray 7).
Pisces (the last Age) is Ray 6.
Aquarius is our present Age.
The Pisces Age is ending now.

Moving from devotion to knowledge & Action.
Working together.

Thus, we learn all together. love, Risa

Notes - some history:
In the early days of our Institute in Santa Cruz, CA....this teaching (How to Respond to a Text, Reading, Art, Music, etc.) was given to students. We created book marks with this information on it. So students would remember how to respond to readings we did together or for homework.

As we studied the "blue books". The building we had our Institute in for 20+ years was eventually torn down to become a medical building. One wall was retained for the new building. It was the wall that had the white board on it where I taught the Astrology & Ageless Wisdom. That wall remains in the new medical building.

Our Institute (Esoteric & Astrological Studies & Research Institute) was next to a Baptist black church with a spire & lots of singing on one side, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation temple on the other side, across the street from Calvary Episcopal Church, Santa Cruz Farmer's Market & the local used Music & Bookstore (Logos). Our little building sat in between all of these....at the corners of New & Center Streets. The landlord's name was Dr. Elmore (as in El Morya).

Since the razing of our building, due to many changes that took place in the town & in my life, we have not been able to find a new building to teach in. Therefore, the Teachings were transferred to FB (daily teaching) with additional weekly teachings on the website (Night Light News).

The detailed teachings are now on FB. We hope in the near future to have a center in physical form once again, in a building, in a community, in a village. With a garden all around it. A place where we live together.

For now, we study together here on FB.
It is for those who want to study the Ageless Wisdom & the Astrology.

We are moving away from Mysticism & Devotion (Pisces Age).
We are moving into the Aquarian Age - where we build a new mind, develop the intelligence & reach up into the Soul for direction. This does not happen w/ devotion or mysticism. It happens with study, together in a Group.

This is our place of study within our Group.

The purpose here together is that we learn how to focus the mind, how to understand what is being posted, how to apply the information & use the information in daily life.

We learn Group work - we learn how to respond to the questions posed. And share our answers This is our Group Work here.

It is....
Spiritual Life in the New Age.
This is the basic study & work in our new age.
Here on FB - our Ashram & College.
Routine, rhythm, ritual, study, pondering, response.
All together.

Gemini & Mercury & Venus & Uranus all stand by to assist us.
I await everyone's intelligent thought-filled responses.
love, Risa

Bridgette TurnbullI learn a lot from your posts. Sometimes its a lot to take in and reflect on. And sometimes i don't know how to respond. I'm a Taurus and I enjoyed learning about the Wesak festival and did extra reading on the festival and found music to relax and reflect with. From your postings I share the light and try to bring positive energy to all. Thank you so much for all you do to share with us!

Anjali ThomasI do appreciate your postings. Thank you. I have been enjoying it as a review of Bailey work that I did years ago. It is bringing back the focus on the meaning of each period and each day. I will participate and will now keep in mind that that is your intention- to bring together a participating thoughtful group that can be of service, to form an ashram group to serve along with others of the NG of W S.

Roger CrainRisa, lots of love to you for your quest to find a group of like-minded people, your quest to enlighten and educate. I am uncertain if you will be able to find the audience, pupils, or alumni you are looking for on facebook. There are quite a few challenges. This delivery medium is primarily content consumption with little need to present thoughtful responses. (see the tools they have provided: like, mention, repost, share, report) I enjoy and read many of your posts here, but cannot fully comprehend or absorb them in a manner you desire to instill due to the state of mind I often attend in. Many people simply use facebook as a form of distraction from true tasks at hand - Others as a means to organize or communicate about events outside of the digital realm. If you wish to continue in this delivery medium a group forum/page is more appropriate to gathering and creating intelligent dialog. This becomes a commitment by group members, much more so than simply "liking" or "following". You can and will be successful, the group you cultivate and individuals you seek will be, and must be different.

Anjali ThomasAs I re-read your post, I appreciate the reminder that we are moving from the mystic (R6)to mind/knowledge (5) to ray 7 action. Sometimes I miss the mystical devotional energy and it helps to remember that we need to move on to R5 clarity of mind which leads to R7 action in the world.

Michelle MesserYou know Risa...I've been pondering about the ' Listening ' of your posts and the lack of interaction from us regarding the questions you pose. Yes, I think the nature of such a public forum causes somewhat of a bystander effect where one person thinks the other will respond and it ends up with most then not responding. Too, I am thinking of my own indoctrination regarding spirit and religious practice in the church....I have a learned reaction that I listen to the teacher/preacher and do not participate in a dialogue in public forums. I think for me the whole idea is a paradigm shift and slowly learning that we are expected to share such thoughts in public. I think perhaps maybe a collective unconscious result has occurred too that includes a whispering of gnostic concepts especially with the current tying of religion and divisiveness with brutal results....these are just some initial ponderings when exploring the why of quietness. Lastly, I too think some things are way over my understanding and I don't want to interrupt your time to ask 'dumb questions' or make dumb statements. I know the adage of 'no question is dumb' but my thoughts on this could be further explained through an example...such as the Buddha being asked why the sky is blue as he has so many important things to do and perhaps shouldn't have to explain things that I'm probably not going to understand even with an attempt of an answer and therefore the time of explaining was wasted. I'm not saying any or all of these are accurate or logical ways to think in fairness to you as you've never done any such thing to make me think as such....but just some things I've been wrestling with...working on it though...an exercise of working as a group while also finding it necessary to have all individuals be present and accounted for in active participation. Love- Michelle

Post #2 Monday - Assessing needs. Mine. Yours'.
I posted information on the Gemini festival today.
I have asked readers to respond today.
There have been no responses.

I have been attempting an experiment here on FB.
To see if we could create together a College.
Where there are teachings (esoteric astrological).
And where readers respond with intelligent thoughtful responses. To the materials posted.
I have posted how to respond, giving guidelines on...
How to Read a Text.
How to Respond.
However, as we can see today & other days before this.
There are few responses. Most of the time, no responses.
To the material posted.

So I must consider what to do next.
A teacher when teaching needs people to respond to them.
To what they teach.
Or the teacher feels they are in a cave.
Alone somewhere.

Over time, things must shift & change & evolve.
Change into something else, expand, grow.
This has to occur here on my FB page.

I don't feel I can continue on just giving out the esoteric/astrological information anymore.
Without responses.
I have been doing this for years now.
Even today, I posted about the Gemini festival.
Gave guidelines & asked for responses.
There were none.

So I must consider what it is I need as a teacher.
And you all as readers can consider what you can do & need
to continue to read my writings. In order to continue reading my posts.

Please don't write the following to me....
please don't ask me to continue.
Or tell me of being too busy each day.

What do I need to continue?
1. Readers who want & are able & are interested in reading the materials posted (esoteric, astrological & everything that comes from that each day), to learn & think & ponder upon the materials & commit to thoughtful intelligent responding.
2. Readers who will do the art work suggested & the home work.
3. Readers who want to learn together in an Esoteric Ashramic Group. And are able to be consistent & thoughtful.

Perhaps this is impossible on FB.
People tell me these things....
FB is a place of quick reads, quick responses.
It's not a place for the Esoteric & Astrological.
It's not a place for serious study, thinking, group awareness,
a college, etc.

Is that true, I wonder?

What am I posting here?
That I am considering the result of my experiment.
And that I am considering what it is I need from readers.
What I need as a teacher here.
In what I consider an College.

Dear readers.
What do you need?

I have posted how to respond, giving guidelines on...
How to Read a Text.
How to Respond.
However, as we can see today & other days before this.
There are few responses. Most of the time, no responses.
To the material posted.

So I must consider what to do next.
A teacher when teaching needs people to respond to them.
To what they teach. 
Or the teacher feels they are in a cave.
Alone somewhere.

Over time, things must shift & change & evolve.
Change into something else, expand, grow.
This has to occur here on my FB page.

I dont feel I can continue on just giving out the esoteric/astrological information anymore.
Without responses.
I have been doing this for years now.
Even today, I posted about the Gemini festival.
Gave guidelines & asked for responses.
There were none.

So I must consider what it is I need as a teacher.
And you all as readers can consider what you can do & need 
to continue to read my writings. In order to continue reading my posts.

Please dont write the following to me....
please dont ask me to continue.
Or tell me of being too busy each day.

What do I need to continue?
1. Readers who want & are able & are interested in reading the materials posted (esoteric, astrological & everything that comes from that each day), to learn & think & ponder upon the materials & commit to thoughtful intelligent responding.
2. Readers who will do the art work suggested & the home work.
3. Readers who want to learn together in an Esoteric Ashramic Group. And are able to be consistent & thoughtful.

Perhaps this is impossible on FB. 
People tell me these things....
FB is a place of quick reads, quick responses. 
Its not a place for the Esoteric & Astrological. 
Its not a place for serious study, thinking, group awareness, 
a college, etc. 

Is that true, I wonder?

What am I posting here?
That I am considering the result of my experiment.
And that I am considering what it is I need from readers.
What I need as a teacher here.
In what I consider an College. 

Dear readers.
What do you need?
love, Risa

Katie McLaughlin BessI read everything you post and nightlight news. I don't always have a response or question I'd ask on such a public forum. Maybe explore a private, locked group. I want to keep learning.

Mary Ann DownsAnother possibility is that folks are not seeing your posts Regularly due to FB metrics. In order to do, they must 'follow' and click 'see first'. Perhaps disseminate that information to see if anything changes?

Lisa BryantDear Risa, I don't spend a lot of time on FB and your posts have only come up in my feed maybe twice in the past several months, with the 2 one being this one. I'm not seeing your posts. That said, I read your weekly column in GoodTimes and have for years, every week. I get it every week, pull out your column and recycle the rest. I have learned much from you and I'm grateful. When I moved to Hawaii in 2004, I found your column printed out on the principals desk where my children went to catholic school. Which led to me reading you online. I say all this because you have had a huge impact on my life although I don't know you personally. I'm sorry it took you reaching out for me to tell you this, but please know that I for one are very grateful for your teachings. With affection, Lisa
