Conflict & Chaos Between the Ages



We are completing the month of Aquarius this week. However, Mercury remains in Aquarius and we are entering the Age of Aquarius (Ages last 2,500 years). So Aquarius will be with us for a very long time.

Aquarius (its task) is the “waters of life (information, truth) poured forth for thirsty humanity.” Waters (information) that end the “darkness” (of ignorance). This means an immense cleansing and change.

At this time in our history, we are in a state of transition between two ages – from Pisces to Aquarius. In times of transition, the previous age is withdrawn as the new age comes forth. Transition times bring great conflict, chaos, disruption and breakdown (as there is now). It is a very vulnerable time for humanity. Times of transition can polarize humanity, creating two different camps or states of (mis)understanding. Countries and nations enter into chaos, as one way of life disappears and a new way of life slowly emerges. Chaos & conflict result. Humanity learns through chaos and conflict. This is the Law of Ray 4 – new harmony emerging from conflict and chaos.

Drawing from a Hebrew book about the Jewish calendar, ‘Sefer Evronot,’ Halberstadt, Germany, 1716.

In transition times the sign Libra steps in, offering humanity balance, equanimity, poise, Right Relations, Right Thinking, Right Choice, Right Discernment and Discrimination. Libra asks us, especially in times of transition, to consider the Hindu word,
“Ahimsa”, which means “doing no harm in thought, word or deed.” Ahimsa means kindness towards all living creatures. Ahimsa avoids all types of verbal and physical violence. The Vedas (Hindu Holy Scriptures) tell us “by not harming any living being, one becomes fit for salvation.”

March 21 – April 19: As the world continues its shift from one age to the new (Pisces to Aquarius), you’re called to be a server of humanity, focusing your will(ingness) and abilities toward initiating the new culture and civilization and discovering like-minded groups who will assist you in this historical, era-changing task. This is what you’ve been called here to do in this present lifetime. Begin with intentions. Be dedicated.


April 20 – May 20:  You’re called to bring forth ideas that will activate and then support the work Aries (and the New Group of World Servers) will do as they initiate the new economic order (the New Sharing Society). The past months (if not years) you’ve known your job was to gather information for the times to come, which you know will be difficult. Even if only a few listen, carry on.


May 21 – June 20:  Your mind reverses itself into thinking about previous goals that did or did not manifest. You assess the education you did or did not complete. You think of travel and adventures, philosophies and religion, all these in order to sort out what you believe in. From your conclusions new goals, travels, adventures, ways of life emerge. A new mind is then formed for the new times.


June 21 – July 22:  The next weeks uncover deep and unrecognized feelings. Careful. Don’t be too secretive about what you’re doing. You’ll want and need people around to share your thoughts and feelings, ideas and plans. Your heart’s missing people these days. You often have information valuable to other’s well-being. Say yes more. Say yes to what’s offered. Then offer more.


July 23 – August 22: You assess your everyday work, how to care for yourself on a daily basis, and the best ways to be effective and efficient with all responsibilities. Is more communication needed in certain relationships? There’s a need to share your values and to set time aside for special moments. Write down your values. The focus on values will continue. It’s a mirror into your future.


August 23 – September 22:  You’ll accomplish tasks and then redo them. You’ll think you’ve completed something and find it’s completely incomplete. You’ll find odds and ends from the past showing up seeking something or other. You’ll be busy, productive, at times impatient, look backward, backpedal when necessary, review, renew, and in the midst of it all this reorganization, you’re happy.


September 23 – October 22: Daily life rhythms seem to have been interrupted. There’s a wound or pain or an inability to do what you are used to be doing. You need new tools to navigate. You’ve experienced a slow down. This is the time when creativity can express itself more fully. Recapture an art form you did from the past. Begin again. Think about home, family, growing up, and everything related to art and culture.


October 23 – November 21:  You ponder upon questions of security and what determines emotional safety. You think about home, wondering where it is. You consider living in other areas and regions, consider ordering an astro-cartography (geographical astrology) chart. What you need to include in your thinking is community because in the future you can no longer be alone all the time. What would home in a community look like for you?


November 22 – December 21:  It’s good to explore neighborhoods, neighbors’ yards, downtowns, gardens, town squares and to have social contact with others. Focus on things local, consciously spending money that supports community endeavors. Also consider what’s of value to you, investing in the values you believe in. Stay steady. Information at times seems all mixed up. Feelings, too. Be silent for a while. Sag is the sign of silence.


December 22 – January 19:   Careful with communication. It may be missing here and there in the retrograde. Focus on defining your values. Try not to spend on non-essentials, depleting your financial resources. Do you have a monthly budget yet, to assess expenditures at months’ end? You will not lack money. It’s simply a time to value and be consciously careful with money and resources. You are valuable.


January 20 – February 18: More and more people will be attracted to what you do, say and think. You will find yourself especially brilliant in terms of new ideas. A new self-identity dawns upon you. You’re more than you’ve ever thought yourself to be. It takes many years, lots of life experiences, many ups and downs for us to value ourselves. Your words are important. People listen. You’re more than you know.


February 19 – March 20:  We see you struggling to flourish and maintain yourself. It’s a struggle of identity, geography, place, groups, leadership and of things constantly dissolving away. New opportunities and contacts eventually emerge out from the shadows. Each day you become more and more practical. A future plan is coming into form and matter. It loves you. Prepare each day for it. With hope and faith and prayer. Pisces’ tasks.

Saturday, Saturn’s Day – November 12, 2016

Sun in Scorpio today trine Chiron –

Mercury enters Sagittarius – sign of Silence

The day is v/c until this evening – when the moon enters Taurus.
We prepare for Monday’s full moon, Scorpio solar festival.
22.48 degrees – early in the morning Monday.
At full moon times – the focus is upon the Sun and the sign the Sun is in – this month – Scorpio – The moon’s energy is veiled. It’s purpose is to receive the Light of Scorpio. Together, the Sun & Moon then direct the Scorpio Light to the Earth.
We prepare today – with Confidence & Aspiration.

Confidence holds our mind in Right Thinking.
Aspiration holds our emotions in Right Feeling.

The Light begins to shine on Gate the Eighth.

The great Presiding One, enrobed in radiant calm, said a single word. The Teacher heard the golden command, & summoned Hercules, the son of God, also the Son of man (mind).
The Light begins to shine on Gate the eighth, the Teacher said.
In ancient Argos, a hydra has made its dwelling there.

Beside the River a festering swamp stands. Within this bog a nine headed hydra lies. Nine heads (nine tests, nine levels to the personality, nine vices) this creature has. Hercules prepare to battle this beast (the uncontrolled personality). One word of counsel may I give, said the Teacher. We rise by kneeling, we conquer by surrendering, we gain by giving up.

Go forth, O son of God, son of man & conquer.”

We prepare today, Saturday. We begin to read the Labours of Hercules to prepare for the Scorpio solar festival on Monday.
Love to everyone today. Risa

First Day of Autumn

First Day of Autumn – Sun enters Libra.
Reappearance of the Christ meditation today w/ the NGWS.
Night Light News is updated – www.nightlightnews.org/
Peace Messengers, Peace Wave, Peace itself, Mercury, Autumn.

We concentrate on Libra today.
Libra is the sign of Right Values, Judgment & Right Human Relations with all Earth’s kingdoms, especially with each other.
Sun entered Libra this morning at 7:21am west coast time.
The moon is in Gemini. And Mercury is Stationary direct – 15 degrees Virgo.
Jupiter & Venus are in Libra too.
Venus rules Libra & Gemini.
Venus ruling Libra calls us to Right Values.

Autumn (Fall Equinox in northern hemisphere, spring equinox in southern hemisphere – equal light & dark).
Equinox – he Sun rests at the equator.

We have on this first Libra day equal light (day) and dark (night). Soon humanity’s festivals of light will begin – reminding us that within darkness there is hidden Light (spirit within matter).

A Study of Libra – preparing us for the month of Libra
So we may understand the many facets, levels, gifts, aspects of Libra.And the tasks we undertake in Libra.

Libra is the Light that moves to rest.
The light that oscillates, until a point of balance is achieved.
Libra is the light that is distinguished by a moving up & down until a poise is achieved.
Libra is a pause.
Our task in meditation during Libra is Contemplation.
Libra’s pause is an assessment, a contemplation of things.
Contemplating our personality as it is related to the Soul.

Libra stands between 2 activities.
In Libra we are paused & in contemplation.
Because we must make important decisions in Libra.
We move forward into the great crisis of Scorpio.
Or we move back into previous experiences once again.
Libra experiences two contrasting realities.
Libra must balance between the two.
And then choose to align one or the other.
The Soul or the personality.

Libra receives & distributes Rays 3 & 7 (this Ray 7 is from Uranus, the Soul ruler of Libra).
Ray 3 – Divine Intelligence, Right Action, Right Economy.
Ray 7 – anchors this into the world, bringing about new rhythms.
Together with Pluto they create the New Economy. The outer manifestation of the 1st Initiation of humanity – that of bread, food and all the resources humanity needs to sustain itself.

Libra is about Right Judgment, too.
Interesting as the Jewish Festivals of Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur, when G-d looks at our lives & makes a judgement about our actions, occurs.

Librans would like to live a peaceful life.
Libra doesn’t like the flurry of disharmony.
And so, in the Light of yesterday’s International Day of Peace, & the equation of peace. Here are more thoughts on Peace.
Peace contains the components of understanding and sharing. Peace is therefore the result of understanding and sharing and not the origin of them as is often implied.
Peace is not a cessation of war. Peace is an active ongoing process.
We don’t begin with Peace. We begin with intentions of & dedications toward Goodwill.
Which lead us to Right Human Relations which leads us to the steps toward an Active & Ongoing Sense of Peace.

Our first day of Libra…love, Risa

Geomagnetic Storms

Geomagnetic Storms yesterday from the Sun.
Continuing today. Careful everyone.
Makes one feel crazy, body hurts, emotions rising. 
Right choices, right communication difficult. 
Wednesday, September 9, 2015 – Mercury’s day.
Mercury rules, guards & guides our day – with new information.
Building the mind each day so that we can enter the plane of intuition.
Knowledge (Jupiter) builds our minds, allowing us to work with Pallas Athena, the intuitional plane, the Buddhic plane (4th, central plane on the Constitution of Man/Mind – an esoteric doctrine).
The sky in the early mornings – pre dawn – 
the moon, Venus, Jupiter, Regulus, etc.
Remaining under the Light & protection of Virgo.
The Madonna, the Mother (matter) pregnant with the new kingdom.
The 5th Kingdom, that of the Soul.
Life quickens. We await Winter Solstice, when the new light comes forth.
When the Solar Angels came to Earth, sacrificing themselves,
in the Lemurian Age – 18-21 million years ago – our little protoplasmic bodies were broken into two – we became two genders – male & female. This was a new developmental stage on Earth.
Leo is the male. Virgo is the female parts of ourselves.
Gender is NOT sex. Sex is the manifestation of gender only.
Gender display duality – the light/dark, the up/down, the radiating/the receptive – dualities allow us to see two sides, to eventually make choices, then to synthesize the two – which is an upliftment above duality – the point at the top of the triangle. We draw that triangle. Mercury, Gemini & Virgo all understand this…
Leo/Virgo is the Sphinx. Until we understand duality, the sphinx is a mystery.
Leo is the male principle – the radiating outward, initiating, seed-thought principle.
Virgo is the female principle – the receptive, gestating the seed thoughts, the bringer forth in matter of the initiating seed thought.
Through the eons the two have been separate.
They have not been understood. The mind has not been understood either.
The mind has a lower mind (receptive). And a higher mind (radiating outward). The lower mind if asleep can be manipulated. 
We must be careful to be awake, have a directed focused mind.
So that our lower mind does not remain unconscious & thus controlled by the Forces of Materialism.
Our minds are both male (focused, radiating outward)
And female (receptive, gestating).
Our minds must be both to be effective in our world.
Most of humanity function within the receptive mind.
Humanity must lift the lower mind up to the Light of the Soul.
So each of us can become “creators” in our lives.
And no longer enslaved.
The Forces of Materialism understand this – the receptive asleep unconscious mind. They project outward, through TV, the media, technology, symbols, colors, shapes, ideas, thoughts, words, that keep us asleep, keep us in the depths of materialism. The Matrix.
Offering humanity the Light of the Soul, the direction from the Soul, is the function of Virgo – her secret in the “cave of the heart.”
The masculine (radiating Light) part of the Mind directs the process 
Associated with Will, provides the Seed Thought, initiating energies.
We think of electricity – the proton, the one in the center w/ electrons around the proton.
The feminine (electrons) takes the seed thought (proton), builds & creates with the Light of the Soul. The parts of the mind unite under the Light of the Soul.
Study, prayer, meditation focuses the mind.
Builds the mind, strengthens it. Unites the female & male parts of the mind.
Lifts the lower to the higher, the direction of the mind through the Soul.
This is Virgo.
from Esoteric Astrology – p. 154 
The mystery of the Sphinx, connected with the relation of Leo and Virgo, and tied up with the secret of the solar Angels. This is not the mystery of soul and form, but the mystery of the higher and the lower mind and their relation to each other.
Virgo has a close relation to the creation of all forms in nature, and is intimately connected to the deva or angelic kingdom, from the lowest nature spirits and elementals, up to the greatest archangels and Divine Builders.
Virgo represents the laborious service in the heart of matter which the Solar Angels expend in their aeonial supervision of a human being. As well, the Solar Angels are already deeply expressive of the Christ Principle (buddhi, or solar love) and are those lives that stimulate the germination of the Christ Principle (under Virgo) in the heart of those they supervise.
The Forces of Materialism create the Matrix, the “traps” for humanity.
They are clever, keeping humanity asleep, exhausted, overworked, homeless, hungry, frightened. For our minds to awaken we must continually gather new information, use discernment & discrimination.
Working together to illumine & enlighten ourselves, each other & all of humanity. This is the work of the Soul in Service (the 3rd Law of the Soul). This is the work of the New Group of World Servers. This is the work of Virgo.
Read Catherine Austin Fitts’ blog today.
Understanding humanity’s global enslavement.
So we can recognize it, understand it, & then turn the other way creating the new…together.
Learning together, each day in the Ashram.
Our College, our school, our refuge…love, Risa
At the UN today – watching it on UN TV.
We are careful what we see. We are discerning & discriminating.
The UN, like all things in form & matter, have a personality, a Soul & an essential originating Spirit (purpose, goal). The UN is an outpost of the Hierarchy. The Avatar of Synthesis oversees the General Assembly. The Security Council at times functions like the personality. We are careful of the Agendas that the UN brings forth. If they Agendas are brought forth & supported by the corporations, then we know that Centralization (read control) is the outcome of the proposals. We are careful, discriminating, we are intelligent, informed, knowledgeable, we are discerning. We call therefore upon the Soul & Spirit of the United Nations to come forth.

Meditations are held all day today & this evening.
Our group will come together at the following times.
6pm west coast
8pm Midwest
9pm East Coast
We will recite the Soul & Great Invocation.
Join the NGWS world wide in the celebration of this Cancer Festival.
“I build a Lighted House & Therein Dwell.”
These are the words of the Soul.
Building a house of Light out of the personality (physical body, emotions, lower mind). The loneliness & isolation of the personality ceases as the Light of the Soul begins to penetrate the personality (matter). Gradually we (the personality) are illuminated to the idea of unity & universality, of Oneness. When the Soul begins its direction of the personality, we become, like the Christ, a channel for the “Light of the World.” When we radiate this Light it becomes “unlimited nourishment to all forms & creatures of life, to all the “little ones.”
We dedicate ourselves at this Cancer Solar Festival to be the “Light for the World, nourishing the ‘little ones.’” This becomes our dedication for ever more.
We become the Universal Mother, pouring forth the “waters of life” to humanity.
We have limitless compassion; we develop inner reserves of nurturing energy. We selflessly create forms & structures on Earth for the betterment of humanity. We work with foods, agriculture, networking with women & men of Goodwill. We become the expression of Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence, Right Action, Right Use of Money/Resources, Ray 6 (Dedication, Vision) & Ray 7 (anchoring the Will-to-Good on Earth). These “pour through us unto a waiting & hungry humanity.”
This is our work today. Working always together in the Ashram.
Under the Light of the Soul.

Cancer Solar Festival at the Time of the Full Moon 
The Full Moon of the Teacher
The (lower) mind is ruled by the moon, for the lower mind represents the reflective principle. According to our alignment the mind mirrors the higher and subtle or the lower and material. Especially in Cancer spiritual Disciples reflect upon the higher realms, thinking about, making contact with our Teachers, Guides & our (individual, group, world) Soul. The Teachers work as reflective principles and transmitters of higher energies, transmitting Light & Love & information to those who follow them. The Master says in the Spiritual Psychology meditations, “These energies are from Higher Circles. These are from whom I follow to those who follow me.”
In the East (geography) Cancer (the sign) is considered the month of the Teacher and Cancer solar festival at the time of the full moon is celebrated as the full moon of the World Teacher. (M.K.)
Understanding Precipitation of Light (a triangle)
1. The Teacher, which is also the Soul, becomes the “Light of the World” for our personality.
2. The NGWS is to be the “Light of the World” for humanity.
3. Humanity is the “Light of the World” for the lower kingdoms – animal, plant, and mineral. And for each other (humanity).

We draw our triangles. Explained by the Tibetan. This prepares us more fully for the Cancer solar festival meditation tonight.
Cancer triangles and Neptune
From Esoteric Astrology, pp. 415-417
Lying behind all the many interlocking triangles in our solar system and conditioning them are three energies (emanations) from three major constellations – the Great Bear, the Pleiades and from Sirius. It might be pointed out that:
1. The energies from the Great Bear are related to the Will or Purpose (Ray 1) of the Solar Logos and are to this great Being what the Monad (Will of God) is to humanity/man (the mind of man). This is a deep mystery and one which even the highest initiate cannot yet grasp. Its sevenfold unified energies pass through Shamballa.
2. The energies from the sun, Sirius, are related to the Love/Wisdom (Ray 2) aspect of God or to the attractive power of the Solar Logos, to the Soul of that Great Being. This cosmic Soul energy is related to the Hierarchy. Know that the great White Lodge on Sirius finds its reflection and a mode of spiritual service and outlet in the great White Lodge of our planet, the Hierarchy.
3. The energies coming from the Pleiades, an aggregation of seven energies, are connected with the Active Divine Intelligence aspect (Ray 3) of God (Logoic expression), and influence the form side of all manifestation. They focus primarily through Humanity.
We draw these above triangles.
Triangles of Force
Connected with this major triangle and affecting powerfully our entire solar system is another set of triangles – a triple interrelation in special relation to humanity. This triangle of forces relates one of the major constellations, one of the zodiacal signs and one of the sacred planets within our solar system.
We draw these triangles.
• 1st Triangle: The Pleiades – Cancer – Venus for Humanity.
• 2nd Triangle: The Great Bear – Aries – Pluto for Shamballa. 
• 3rd Triangle: Sirius – Leo Jupiter for Hierarchy.
Cancer & Sirius are related
The US is ruled by Cancer & Sirius (12/13 degrees Cancer)
From Esoteric Astrology p. 466
Cancer and Sirius 
Cancer—Capricorn—Saturn (a triangle) (which are an expression of Sirius energy) enable the aspirant to tread the Path of Purification, of Probation. These energies focus and qualify the energy of the Great Lodge of the Most High in that distant Sun. They pour through the Hierarchy upon the mass of men and enable the unit in that mass to “isolate himself and turn his back upon the past and find his way on to that section of the Path wherein he learns to feel.” 
1. Sirius – Working through – Cancer – Saturn – Capricorn
2. The Pleiades – Working through – Gemini – Mercury – Sagittarius
3. The Great Bear – Working through – Aries – Sun – Libra
We draw these triangles.
Cancer & Neptune 
(Cancer streams through Neptune – the Christed (Soul’s) waters of life. Neptune is the Soul & Spiritual ruler of Cancer.
Today during the Full moon time, the Sun is trine Neptune – Neptune is the Soul & Spiritual ruler of Cancer – Spirit entering into matter.
From Esoteric Astrology p. 217-218
A great mystery is veiled and hidden in the relationship between Cancer & Neptune – for Cancer-Neptune is expressive of the seventh ray which anchors the Will of God, the Will-to-Good on Earth. This energy is apparent and radiating to humanity today at the full moon, Cancer solar festival.
We learn about these things together.
We draw our triangles.
We prepare for the Cancer solar festival.
Together. Love, Risa
