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 In times of transition, the previous age is withdrawn as the new age comes forth.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
