Return to Goodness – Forgive Me O Lord as I too Forgive
Under the sign Virgo, the World Mother, humanity is to learn about love, forgiveness, goodness and thus be filled with wisdom. Virgo tells us to be aware and careful to be kind (ahimsa) – to refrain from criticism and judgments of self or others, to not have unwarranted expectations that others will do as we say or be perfect. (all unskillful Virgo tendencies).
When we have criticism and judgments of self and others, we are living within a false personality perception of expectation that no one can satisfy. It only leads to loneliness and self-betrayal. Instead, as Leo asked us to identify as creative beings, Virgo calls us to continue to cultivate our creativity. Virgo shields and protects and gives life to our creativity, which is a Soul quality. And Virgo tells us to know that always we are “good.” Always we are perfect.
As I have previously written – in our Esoteric Astrological Institute we study and participate in all religious festivals during the year. Each religion throughout the ages was/is a developmental stage for humanity. Each religion preparing humanity for its next stage. Thus each religion and every festival had/has life and purpose.
Last week I wrote about Rosh Hashanah (shofar, apples and honey, etc.), the Jewish new year. Next week, on September 15th, Yom Kippur (Atonement) begins. The days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are Days of Remembering, Repentance & Renewal – days in which we seek to be forgiven as we forgive others. This is a yearly celebration and ritual. In the Catholic church this is called the Sacrament of Confession. Both rituals bring humanity to a state of grace (mysterious something).
The Days of Repentance & Renewal, the most sacred days of the year, are known as the High Holy Days. G-d opens the Book of Life each year on Rosh Hashanah to inscribe a person’s name and fate for the coming year. But G-d does not seal that fate until Yom Kippur, “Day of Atonement.” The Days of Repentance thus offer humanity (no matter what religion) the opportunity to think, ponder, remember and atone for past misdeeds, seek forgiveness, and mend one’s ways. This is the practice of teshuvah, or “return to goodness.” A form of Goodwill and well-wishing throughout this holy time is to wish that somebody be “written in the Book of Life.”
Prayers on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as well as the intervening period, often take the form of recognizing and confessing past deeds and saying “Forgive me, O Lord, as I too forgive.”We sing these words over and over so the heavens also may hear.

Only the courageous who have love can truly lead. Begin soon creating new projects that will overflow into the next year. Something’s almost over.|
|October 23 – November 21: Think about helping others. Visit or offer a hand to the sick, the hospitalized, the shut away, the sad, the lonely, and the limited.
