Last Weekend in February 2019 Friday 1 February 2019

The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for Sunday 24 February 2019

The wintry sun shivers at 10 degrees of Aquarius.  Scholars and historians alike have long wondered about the identity of the man who carried the water jug in Jerusalem, found in Luke 22 and Mark 14.  Jesus specifically mentioned this man to His disciples as the one to be followed to the house he would enter.  The man led them to a house with an upper room, where they gathered and prepared the Passover feast and the Last supper.  It was in this same upper room where they gathered to receive the outpouring of the Comforter in the form of tongues of fire.  We are wise to put this in the context of preparation for endings, for the end, for a time of sacrifice, which few associate with Aquarius.

The Water Bearer appears again in the Garden of Gethsemane, wearing a linen shroud, following after the man about to be arrested and crucified.  He is a fascinating and underreported figure here, as no one can put him in any context that's explicable outside that of being an outsider.  The gender and identity of the Water Bearer is multi-layered, as we see from the current rage for questioning these and the concepts behind them.  

The next time you see clouds, think of them as water bearers!!

The names of the stars of the constellation Aquarius itself, the Water Bearer, include The Record of the Pouring Out; Who Goes and Returns, the Urn, and What Issues From The Flowing Stream. Those people and relationships born under these stars are connected with commercial and literary affairs, guiding stars in every sense, and have excellent powers of concentration.  

In this mornings sunrise we can see the stars of The Winged Horse, Pegasus.  Beloved Pegasus kicked open a spring of clear clean water, said to be the source of all poetic inspiration.  The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of He Who Goes and Returns;  Who Carries;  and A Flock of Lambs with Kids.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are connected with commercial and literary affairs, guiding stars in every sense, and have excellent powers of concentration.  The wise and prudent  will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 

With the moon in Libra and the sun in airy Aquarius, we are air heavy!! Such seeming contradiction can be described as being absent minded, living tomorrow, wool gathering.  We are also painstakingly fair and balanced, to the point of being unable to decide.  We definitely do not want to be alone, yet this is one of the best transits for study of words, the law, and mathematics.  Not the time for taking sides!  Special care must be taken of the lower back and kidneys now, as these is at their most vulnerable at this transit.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you have a kidney stone now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.

What a way to end a month!!  Saturday is perfect for connecting with the lost, the led astray, the different and difficult.  We have the sharpest capacity to listen and to hear what is presented to us, as well as the ability to incorporate our insight into a counter argument without being a jerk.  Let's wait till after breakfast, till 9 18 AM Pacific, 12 18 PM eastern time, till way after dark!!

We may want action movies Saturday night!

Sunday continues our trend in making progress and adding diversity to our social life!! We are deeply inspired at 11 29 AM Pacific, 2 29 PM eastern, to share a point of view and a rooted aim with others.  By afternoon, 2 21 PM Pacific, 5 21 PM eastern time, we have made points with our view and means of presentation.

Late night on the west coast, 11 18 PM, those of us who rise for midnight prayer, or who are still awake awaiting it, will again be graced with stark and insightful understanding!!

Monday begins the final week of the shortest, coldest month!!  Pay attention to those early morning dreams, which present megabytes of info!!

Now is a time of real significance!

 

Business meetings

Mercury, our orb of communication, bobs along in Aquarius, full of bright ideas, fun, impractical, innovative!!  We can skyrocket!!  

 

That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occasions, Vulcan, causes untold trouble in the waters ahead.  Be warned and beware!

 





Time for Sports for Real!

The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, shoots through true blue Sagittarius, the horseman of the celestial sphere. We love everything about sports, gaming, adventure that involves competition, over the next month.  




Mars Aweigh

Mars rules in Aries, his own sign! We have no problem with exercise, with energy, with seeing our way clear!!

 




Our business sense

starts to give off a strange oder... in Scorpio, Jupiter unearths ancient scandals, shedding light on the dross.  The smell will reach high heaven!
 
 
     What a year we have ahead! 
 

 




Timetables, class schedules, business meeting plans

    Saturn rides through sidereal Sagittarius, pointing us in the right direction when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.  

     At his best, Saturn can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand.  

     Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.  We will discover this in 2018!

 

 

 

 
 



Onward!!

Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries the Spring Lamb.  Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!!  As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids.  Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action.  Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers!   This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
 
 
 



Our dreams of the future,
are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealism and music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation.  This  inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.   
 
Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoning ability a bit cold.  A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.  
 

 





Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius.  Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there.  

     Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker.  Let's not disappoint Him!

     With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality.  As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!

     Pluto is currently keeping the demons in the dark, away from us, till the end of September.  Time for planning strategies to slay them!

 





The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, rocks in Capricorn, and family and tradition are most important to us now!  

 





Our spousal planette Juno repositions herself in Aries. She leaps forward even when falling behind!

 





Splashing in Pisces is the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde now to go back and fix what needs work on our inner emotional issues with real success when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy. 

 





Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, slips quietly through Virgo, the celestial Gardner. 

 






The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, bakes wonders in Libra!! A time of successful entertaining! 

 

 





This marks the second complete lunation for this year.






Jesus' Teachings on Money



One of the most corrosive quandries we face as American Christians today is that of the, and it's erroneous teachings about money and our attitude toward capitalism.  Jesus Himself was a capitalist.  

The witness of His Own Words provides us with the right attitude on material possessions and our righteous atttitude toward them.  Jesus taught us in story form, anecdotes, or infomercials, so that we might have an ear of understanding.  These stories have more than one level on which we can access His reasoning.  In these passages, Jesus didn't advocate usuery;  He praised a money lender for his work nonetheless.  If Jesus did not approve, He would not have liken our own best behavior to that of a good and faithful servant.

Luke 19:23 Why then didnít you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?í


Matthew 15: 26 "His master replied, ĎYou wicked, lazy servant!!  27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

For the Scripture says, "You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain." And in another place, "Those who work deserve their pay!" I Timothy 5:17-18.

3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers." 

 

 

Even He, the Lord of Lords, was accompanied by a group of wealthy women who provided for Him materially. Luke 8: I-3;  JohnThe emergent church and it's communist overtones chooses to ignore these passages because these words do not suit their agenda, just like the Whore of the Many Waters, who only tells part of the story.

 

Many godly Bible characters were wealthy. 

Solomon was the wealthiest man in history; yet observe his conclusion of this matter. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14  

Job was the wealthiest man of his day (Job I: 3) yet when all his wealth was gone, observe his attitude. Job 1:20-22

 

We do not please God by being poor; our relationship with Him is the important part of life.  It is not measured by either abundance or absence of material goods. Nowhere in the Bible does God or Jesus specifically condemn anyone simply for having or not having money.  He always deals with their heart attitude.

Jesus Himself not only participated in festive occasions which included eating and drinking with others (Mt 9:10-11; Mk 2:15), there are times when He hosted parties.  Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana, he didnít chastise the family for having an expensive feast. Nor did he say, "Just drink water and save your money for the poor."  


He was even called a glutton, a drunkard and a friend of riff-raff (Mt 11:18-19; Lk 7:33- 36).   Jesus entered into joyful celebration with "sinners, taxcollectors, prostitutes and the rabble."

In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus positively described a lavish feast (Lk 15:22-
23).  

The Gospels repeatedly record Jesus giving thanks for food (i.e., Mt 14:19; 27:26-27).  As the perfect Man, Jesus exemplified grateful enjoyment for Godís bountiful gifts.  He demonstrated that "the religion of gratitude cannot mislead us" (Wordsworth).  Genuine gratitude and enjoyment can coexist with a sacrificial, generous determination to relieve the suffering of others.  (The Apostle Paul echoes this theme in 1 Cor 10:30 and 1 Tim 6:17-18).  

 

The Bible does NOT say that money is the root of all evil, It says... "the LOVE of money is the root of all evil... " I Timothy 6:10.


One of our commandments is to refrain from envy and covetousness, to be content with what Gods provisions for us.  This includes talents, looks, aptitudes, and family background.   All we have been given is a blessing!!  We are not to be ashamed of Gods work or to gainsay His decisions. Psalm 49: 16-17; Exodus 20:17


We are to be content in whatever state we find ourselves, resting in  the LORD JESUS CHRIST Philippians 4:11 Interestingly, Paul wrote these words while in jail!


Let's consider the things which we know from experience money can not buy:

 Wisdom Proverbs 16:16
 A righteous life. Proverbs 28:6; Proverbs 16:8; Psalm 37:16
 A good night's sleep. Ecclesiastes 5:12 
Gods own word. Psalm 119:14, 72, 127
Good health. Luke 8:43
Peace and quiet Ecclesiastes 4:6; Proverbs 15:16; 17:1

Matthew 6: 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

1 Timothy 5:8New International Version (NIV)

8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.I Timothy 5:8.

 

 

In 3 John 1:2, John, His beloved disciples, says to us Christians, "Beloved, I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers." 


 

A message to the emergent church from Christ Jesus: Proverbs 11: 1, "A false balance is abomination to the Lord...".Luke 19 12 27





The Future of A Christian Nation
