America – A Curious, Fascinating & Fragile Venture

Humble & Kind (Music)

New Introduction – After the Election




Dear Readers. The column was written last week before yesterday’s election. At that time our election day hadn’t happened yet. So the column below was written then. However, this will be posted after election day & we know Donald Trump (the “outlier”, the one who looked & spoke different, who didn’t speak w/ political correctness, etc.) won the presidency. I wrote about this on my FB page today (November 9). You might be interested in reading what I wrote and then reading the many many responses (on both sides of the issue).

signing_of_declaration_1869_issue-24cOur nation will change now. The “red button” will be pushed. The cabal will come down. And we will all be asked to support a new nation. We will be asked to ‘do our part’. There is shock & disbelief. But we weren’t surprised. Trump spoke from his heart to the heart of the people (who were listening). And the people heard him. And they voted for him. From the heart of all that matters.

Below is my column. Everything I wrote still applies. It responds to the deep division that continues to occur in our country. It is between those who listened & heard and understood the “outlier” and those who couldn’t hear at all. They only heard darkness.

Here is what I wrote to one of my publishers on Trump’s being elected.

He changed over the course of the election.

He experienced accelerated change.

He was ‘called’ to serve.

He is the only one brave enough to face the dark forces.

It’s not easy for him.

It’s harder for him than for us.

I find him noble. And am grateful for him.

We (each of us) couldn’t do it.

To overcome the cabal…he had to know all the dark secrets.

He had to have been there himself.

That’s what we heard at first.

Now he’s changed.

Hardly anyone sees that.

But you (all) might now that you understand…love, Risa


The Earlier Written Column

This column was written prior to the November 8th election, so I cannot comment on who was elected. Whomever is our republic’s president, half of us are happy & the other half are not. So much was happening behind the scenes leading up to our vote. Much of which we didn’t know. It was like the beginning of a 2nd American revolution. So much conflict, chaos, dissention. Let us again review, in order to understand, the purpose of crisis, conflict & chaos.

There is a natural rhythm we experience on Earth – Crisis, Polarization & Sweep into the next reality. Conflict and chaos are the tensions needed to push us forth into the next level of harmony.


Mars, Pluto (both rulers of Scorpio) & Uranus in Aries play their parts. Pluto lifts all that’s hidden into the light. Mars’ tests strengthen our discernment. Mars enters Aquarius Tuesday night summoning the “people’s voices.”

Scorpio, always the bellwether (voting day in Scorpio), gathers everything – personality, soul & the spirit of all things – fuses, blends and lifts everything up to the Light of Day.

Simultaneously, as Pluto in Capricorn brings a transformation to our government, Uranus in Aries “bring forth all things new”. These two, Pluto & Uranus, prepared us for this election seven times.


Alexis de Tocqueville described our America as a “curious, fascinating, fragile venture.” It still is. We need to be reminded of this often. In the aftermath of the elections, let us remember to remain observing, compassionate, loving, humble and kind. Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you” / Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie / I know you got mountains to climb / But always stay humble and kind…” Lyrics Humble & Kind from Tim McGraw. Let’s listen together…

March 21 – April 19: Things unusual and otherworldly are occurring to Aries. Avoiding large groups in order to maintain a comfort level allows you to stabilize unimpeded. If in too large a crowd, confusion results. Safety of heart and mind become important. The most comfort now is through technology, social media, where like-minded others understand you. All Aries are changing. Finding true peers and their true voice.


April 20 – May 20: Someone in particular is prominent in your life and you communicate from your heart that you care. You are serious, unhurried, and subtle. However, your intentions are understood, received and reciprocated. This calms you and brings you to a state of balance, which has been needed by you for some months. Now you can continue with the world work.


May 21 – June 20:  It’s time to reach out to those both near and far, communicating with them your recent thoughts, hopes, plans and goals. You’re to be like a great wind that blows all the amber leaves from the trees and on that day everyone knows winter is near. You are to communicate in such a way that people’s lives change in an instant. Are you traveling somewhere soon?


June 21 – July 22:  You remember trips taken long ago with a loved one. You took time away from home then, discovered new places. And now, you ponder upon future travel plans, not wanting your life to be restricted and or too filled with responsibility. Home these days feels expansive enough, solitude feels joyful. You have plans for where you live and consider creating a colorful theme garden in the summer.


July 23 – August 22: Something you read, study, come across, some words, insights, philosophy, teachings, perhaps a teacher, not like a shadow but a sunbeam, falls across your path and suddenly your life is illuminated and expanded. Someone is in your life and their acts of service are recognized, appreciated and acknowledged by you. You realize love’s been there all along. You have been distrustful. Now you’re not.


August 23 – September 22:  Perhaps you’re feeling a bit wounded. There’s something that must be understood at the heart of the matter, meaning within your heart. Are you working too hard, thinking too much or holding ancient self- criticism? Recognize those in your world you respect, honor and look up to. Make a list. Realize we love those we are most like. This revelation allows you a true reflection of self. You are they.


September 23 – October 22: You’ve had many life experiences; many relationships, hardships, abandonment, changes and transformations. At times, these can feel life threatening. However, as you reflect on them, you see how each has prepared and strengthened you for who you are now. A goodness, an understanding of values, a recognition of your abilities emerge. Like Venus (Libra’s ruler), rising at sunset to herald the night, you have become the bright and shining Evening Star.


October 23 – November 21:  During Scorpio Sun it’s good to assess what you value, who you value and why. This is most important because in all Mystery Schools one enters their studies with the axiom, “Know Thyself.” The stars and planets reach down to us daily, helping us to know and understand ourselves. Some of the signs are able to comprehend this more easily (Scorpio and Pisces). Actually, Jupiter has made you into a bit of a Pisces lately!


November 22 – December 21:  You are to go out and about into the community, observing quietly for ways to serve others. It will bring you great enjoyment and benefit, possibly meeting someone of great magnetic charisma, charm and power. If you gather up your ideals and apply them to what your community needs, you’ll find there’s a great need only you can fulfill. Have the intention to encourage and value others. Soon you will go into silence.


December 22 – January 19:   The holiday season is about to begin. After helping those in need, after sudden events pushed you into unexpected travel, unexpected sadness, you may want a bit of solitude. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with the world you remain behind veils of privacy and protection. This is good and the appropriate choice especially for the family. And then, you step out into the world in service. Asking always, what is best for your heart to do?


January 20 – February 18: An event places you in different surroundings. You find you must learn new ways of being. Perhaps a new (old) career emerges, travel takes precedence, rest too – all part of your next developmental stage. Is there a wound about something in form disappearing, dissolving into the great abyss of change? Having less prepares you for more opportunities, later, more happiness. When you can again feel at home.


February 19 – March 20:  Quietly opportunities arise, to manifest in the New Year. For now, you are to begin preparations. Eliminate, clear out, give away what’s not needed. New people, part of the new opportunities occurring next year, will enter your life. Maintain simplicity now and confidence. Travel is probable later – here, there, everywhere. You meet a loved one in the middle. The work you will do illuminates others. It’s seen and recognized.
