Freedoms for Humanity

Light in the Darkness

Pluto Opposite Sirius,

Advent, Hanukkah, New Moon Festival

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Queen of the Americas


The four-freedoms-everywhere in the world

It’s almost solstice, Christmas & the New Year of 2016 (Fire Monkey Year). December festivities center on light – Advent, Hanukkah, solstice, Christmas tree – illuminating the darkness. And, esoterically, the focus of the “rider on the white horse”, eyes directed toward the mountaintops of Capricorn (sign of Initiation).

hanukkah-story of hannukah by ori-shermanThe month of December is dedicated to Advent (“adventus” – “something’s coming”) – winter solstice, Sun turning northward, new light, birth of the holy child…& to revelation. This past Sunday night (Dec. 6), Hanukkah, eight-day candle-lighting Jewish festival of lights, began. Both religious festivals (Advent & Hanukkah) are about preparation, (re)dedication and the kindling of (our) light (hope, promise) within the darkness (of matter). Hanukkah continues, the menorah lit each night, till Monday, December 14th, a very auspicious, Sun/Jupiter day.

Wednesday, December 9, Pluto opposed Sirius (13 Capricorn/Cancer joining the US Sun, 12 Cancer). This influence will continue now through the rest of 2015 & into 2016.

Sirius & Pluto

Sirius is the blue-white Star of karma, freedom & Initiation (for humanity). Pluto is the planet of transformation and purification. As Pluto allows us to see the darkness in the world, Sirius comes forth & purifies it for us. Freeing humanity from the past. However, before the freedom can occur, there is a battle occurring in our world.

Four Freedoms postage stamp


In our present world the Forces of Darkness (retrogression, religion fanatacism, terrorism) are attacking (and eliminating) humanity’s Four Freedoms. Defined by President FD Roosevelt, the Four Freedoms are,

1) Freedom of Speech,

2) Freedom of Worship,

3) Freedom from Want,

4) Freedom from Fear.

The Dark Forces, through unceasingly created terrorizing events and cultivating a culture of fear, threaten humanity’s very life & well-being.

Invoking the Lords of Destiny

We demand, from the Lords of Destiny, freedom for humanity.

We demand that the Rule of Evil to be gone!

We stand with, align under, the Lords of Destiny.

And the Lord of the World, Sanat Kumara from Venus.

Directed by Hierarchy, we radiate the needed Light into the world.

We invoke Heaven to descend on Earth.

And so it is.

The Battle

As the world encounters an attack from the Forces of Darkness – creating a battle between the Forces of Darkness & the Forces of Light. The Forces of Darkness have as their task death & destruction. The Forces of Light’s task is the salvaging of humanity, the lifting of humanity to the Kingdoms of Beauty.

The Choice

We are told to make our choice. Where do we stand, we are asked? What is our identity? What identity do we choose? What groups are we a part of? Do we stand with the Forces of Light? These are the great Arjuna questions

Task of the NGWS

The New Group of World Servers is called to counteract this attack through daily meditation, prayer, visualizations (triangles of light around the Earth), demanding the Good to emerge, and recitation of the Soul & Great Invocations. And to assist in strengthening the hands & arms of the NGWS everywhere. We stand on the grid of light, the triangles set around the Earth. We see the squares turning into Lighted Triangles. These create the “Saving Force.”

The United States

The situation is our world is now in a state of emergency. The Sirius (next to the Sun of the United States)/Pluto (releasing freedom) opposition is specifically calling to the United States – whose task is to “lead humanity towards the Light.”


Humanity is experiencing a new birth – an Initiation – the first –birthing for the world a new spiritual reality of Life into the world. And the United States is to lead the “Way.” Creating a new life of Goodness & of Beauty.

We stand together in this endeavor. Pluto/Sirius in Capricorn/Cancer calls to us.

We visualize ourselves at the heart, at the center of a great wheel. Emanating from the wheel are streams of golden light. They originate from Sirius, enter into the Big Dipper, enter into the heart of the Sun & into our (the NGWS) hearts. From our hearts we emanate the Seven Streams of Light into the hearts & minds of humanity. We see the hearts & minds of humanity alight with the fires of Freedom. We create a protection for humanity of Light, Love, Wisdom & Will – the three Aspects of God. We lift humanity up to the Kingdoms of Light & of Beauty. We do this daily & always together. We stand in the Ashram. Absorbing & holding, integrating & radiating the Light. Reciting the Great Invocation each day – the Mantram of Direction for humanity. A great potency is released for the salvaging of humanity. When we radiate the Light & recite the Great Invocation for humanity, the rhythms in the life of humanity change. Humanity’s personality will is lifted up to the Will, Love & Light of the Soul (a triangle).

New Moon

Friday, early morning, December 11 is the (19 degrees) Sag (seeing the goal) new moon festival. During new moon festivals we “strengthen and uplift the endeavors of the New Group of World Servers (NGWS.” The strength needed to support the Forces of Light in their battle against the Forces of Darkness.


Our Lady – Queen of the Americas

Saturday is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe –mother of the Americas. We invoke the Mother to help us recognize the higher values, expand our consciousness. Understanding the need for change, we stand with the wise engineering of these changes. We call forth control by the Soul to direct humanity, world leaders and all nations. Our work together defined under the light of the Sagittarius (our journey, task, goals) new moon.



I See the Goal

I Reach That Goal

And Then I See Another

(Sagittarius Seed Thought)

March 21 – April 19: If traveling, careful this month. Are you pondering upon new professional ideas? Do you feel pressured to elevate your endeavors? Do you seek a religious or spiritual reality yet not knowing what to choose? As you work in the world Saturn is bringing discipline and structure to all plans, agendas & goals. Be kind and patient with others.


April 20 – May 20: You seek resources for generations to come so everyone can feel safe and secure. Your studies help build the new culture and civilization. You do an important work. In the meantime, resources are hiding in rooms, closets, drawers, storage units and garages. Let everything be wide open into the fresh air. So you can see what you truly have. A wealth of resources.


May 21 – June 20:  Are relationships, one in particular, on your mind? Are resources held in common communicated about and being used practically and with care? Your money needs a practical reference point – a goal for its use, investments in land, building for the future. Money and relationships work together. Both are basic archetypes, needing harmony. Harmony emerges only after chaos and conflict. Recognize this.


June 21 – July 22:  In your daily life, you seek to find new goals, meet those goals and discover others. However, it’s possible you can’t see clearly what your goals are. Goals influence our future.

July 23 – August 22: Your energy’s high as you gallop toward far-reaching goals. Your creativity is taking on a new structure and focus.

August 23 – September 22:  Have you plans and goals for your home during this season? Are you seeking to change the structure of home and daily life?

September 23 – October 22: What is the foundation and source of your many beliefs? A deep transformative change penetrates your heart/mind and many beliefs begin to have no validity. Disconcerting at first, you’re actually being led to truths you were previously incapable of understanding. As beliefs break down, a greater capacity to (give/receive) love emerges. You will then understand the e.e.cummings’ poem, “be of love (a little) more careful than of anything.”


October 23 – November 21:  It’s time to ponder upon then clarify goals concerning money and resources in order to make your future safe and practical. You don’t want to be wounded by not preparing adequately. It’s good to concentrate on building adequate resources for the times to come. These resources are not only for you.

November 22 – December 21: I see the goal, I reach the goal, and then I see another.” Keynote words significant to all Sag people. Concentrating on them allows a new self-identity to emerge. Seeking truth, you also seek justice and joy. It’s most important to acknowledge you travel from goal to goal. Goals change. What are they now? What would you like them to be? Look for swans, altars, harps, eagles, serpents while maintaining silence.


December 22 – January 19:   You stand in both inner and outer realities, in the world yet not of it, personal while also public. You accomplish much work each day, from morning till night. At day’s end you hope sleep brings refreshment and balance. For sleep, drops of nutmeg oil are good. Create rituals at home reflecting the sacred season. Create rhythms of prayer with family. These connect you with the heavens and the earth. You hear the symphony of the spheres.


January 20 – February 18: Our outer reality is connected with our inner reality. What occurs in our outer life is based on what we believe, envision, have intentions for and our focus. Humanity, which you represent, is to bring forth the new culture and civilization, the new world order, learn the Aquarian Laws & Principles under which the new culture will emerge. Your present life is a template of this. Be grateful for even the difficulties. They hold secrets. You will lead the Way.


February 19 – March 20:  Each day and night, through dreams and visions, new revelations appear. Revelations are gifts from the future. On our earth revelations often emerge from suffering, from grief and feelings of despair. You understand this line of poetry from Dante’s Divine Comedy “In the middle of the journey of my life, I came to a dark wood and found myself and my way lost.” That journey is coming to a fork in the road. Two paths are seen.
