Happy Decem-brrr!
 
Happy Countdown to Christmas!!
 
Happy Birthday Sagittarius!!!
 
This 'brr' months sees the full beauty of winter on display in the dazzling stars of sidereal Sagittarius, the Celestial Horseman, the White Knight, the Sky Rider, the Wild Horse!  The sun shoots into true blue Sagittarius at 10 20 AM Pacific time, 1 20 PM eastern time on December 16!!
 
We star gazers, readers of Gods word written in the heavens, know the names of the stars of Sagittarius as The Gracious, Delighted In, Going and Sending Forth, Sent Forward Swiftly, Who Strives, the Gracious One, The Purchaser  Falling during this festive season, we resonate the same joyfulness!  
 
The lyrical stars of Lyra the Harp charm the background of sunup today. Lyra was the enchanting lyre made from a tortoise shell by Hermes.  The individual names for these stars include Being Exalted, The Springing Up, The Fishing Eagle, and The Eagle.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are endowed with intellectual qualities, with a lofty sense of justice and wisdom, are unusually sensitive, and are attracted by tenderness and trust.  The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 
 
The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for the weekend of 16 and 17 December 2017

The moon sinks slowly low in Scorpio, edging toward its renewal.   With the moon in unsettled Scorpio and the sun in bold, bright Sagittarius, our mood can sometimes bound outward a bit too loudly!  With the moon in Scorpio we are sensitive, psychic, drawn to mysteries and sensations; this is when we solve puzzles and become puzzling to those who love us.  We can be overly sensitive to comments made offhandedly or in jest.  Sagittarius frequently makes them.  Now is not the time to take things too seriously!  Special care must be taken of the generational and eliminatory organs, as these are at their most vulnerable now.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you get a hemorrhoid now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.

Our days are magical and blessed!  Early morning dreams are really of sugarplums, as 3 28 AM Pacific, 6 28 AM eastern time, brings us heavenly ideas and notions of kindness and encouragement! A fantastic Saturday ends on a tired note at 4 27 PM Pacific, 7 27 PM eastern time.
 
The moon shoots into true blue Sagittarius at 7 23 PM Pacific time Saturday evening, 10 23 PM eastern time.  With the moon in Sagittarius we are at our most expansive, philosophic, and interesting.  We want to learn and expand our minds and hearts now!  Not the time to retreat! Special care must be taken of the larger joints and the thighs, as these are at their most vulnerable now.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you get a hip replacement now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
 
 
Our dreams late, and early Sunday, are in perfect tune with the heavens, as we may hear the most celestial music, inclining our ears to holy words!
 
Mid Sunday morning, 10 34 AM Pacific, 1 34 PM eastern time, we have a meeting of souls with a friend!  
 
The evening chimes well with work-outs together, running, or companionship!  
 
The moon renews itself in Sagittarius at 10 30 PM Pacific Sunday night, or 1 30 AM Monday morning, the 18 th, on the east coast.  This markes the 13 th lunation cycle in the year, a double dose, a dual portion of Sagittarius!!  
 
 
A whole new ball game, Star Travelers!!  
 
 
 
 
The orb of communication and ideas, Mercury, has sunk back into deep, introspective Scorpio, a stormy period till well after Christmas.  This sweep will backend us a bit, giving us time to regain ground. Our review time lasts through the 23 rd!  Just in time for a fresh heart at Christmas!
 
This is more than the holiday blues that some of us suffer through quietly.  Venus, the golden girl of the cosmos, has slooped into the domain of Scorpio, where she tends to shy out and hide herself, secreting away her treasures.  She too will encounter Saturn, on Christmas Eve through Christmas Day.  What a gracious way to display our spiritual strength and principle, rather than going commercial, as most of us tend to do at this holiday!  This Christmas will be all about the real treasures of our lives and souls!  The Wisest among us Star Travelers will have a keen eye on this now!
 
If we are a bit bittersweet about life now, pondering what might have been, let's take power over this by directing our thoughts toward learning from past mistakes.  There is no profit in expending good energy beating ourselves up over what can't be changed, but we can make amends, restitution, and a firm plan for the future.
 
 
We may wisely begin finishing up and dovetailing projects now till after Christmas!!
 
 
 

The Christian Sagittarius is a knight out traversing the worlds, rescuing, slaying monsters, banishing evildoers, and salvaging treasures.  As a Sagittarius, this knight is proverbially happy-go-lucky!  Good natured, optimistic, almost Pollyanna, he is the most fun, uplifting, encouraging of knights.  He is also the most socially oriented and popular!  Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Sagittarius knight Gracious, Delighted In, Going Forth Swiftly, and The Bowman Who Strives Continually.  

Sagittarius is the communicator of the zodiac, proving beyond doubt that it is what one says that matters, rather than how one says it.  The Horseman frequently puts his hoof in his mouth in the most graceless and clumsy way!  He is the recipient of much kindness or harshness, depending on his audience, who, if they are wise, realizes that there is no real malice in Sag, and that what he says is well worth listening to and incorporating.  It is all about what he knows.

Blue energy connects to higher dimensions and translates information from the spiritual realm into the physical world. It is this wisdom that the Sagittarian understands, but only when in complete balance.

Blue energy connects to the throat; the lesson of the life of the Sagittarian soul is to learn to speak inner truth with grace. Gratia et Veritas, Star Travelers, Grace and Truth!!  Geranium, chamomile, peppermint or cypress scents correlate to blue.  Our throat can be energized with a cup of these herbal teas.  The blue food groups are few, but include blueberries, plums, blackberries, asparagus and fish.

Wear blue gemstones, such as sodalite, lapis lazuli or blue lace agate, and nurture yourself by using blue to relax after a hectic day.

 

Mercury slips back through Scorpio bringing us back to old issues which pop up on their own.  Time to pay attention!!
 
The phantom moon Vulcan scuttles closes the eye of the sun, the central eagle.
 
Venus, the charmer of the heavens, shelters in place in Scorpio, unhappy with her impending visit with Saturn.  She trumps the hard liner on Christmas Eve and Day with her inner grace, vast spiritual treasures, and rich splendor!
 
Mighty Mars enters the abode of Venus, Libra, he is still, calm, almost torpid.  Winter is here!  
 
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now in Libra, enhances and expands all that is elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming.  What a year we have ahead! 
 

Saturn is making a straight shot through Sagittarius, stalling our travel plans and putting a damper on our school credits.  The dour schoolteacher of the cosmos, at his best, 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.  We  have the next couple of years to study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live.  If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire.  Test the tester!!  We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and hard as iron now, and we need to seriously consider the need for borders.  Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.

 
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, is exploding through Aries the Spring Lamb in soccer style, backwards.  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.
 
 
Neptune retrograde in Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation, brings us most of our ideas from the future itself.  We know this intuitively as we know what is about to happen, and bingo! it comes to pass!  This will continue as a trend till late November.  Make wise use of this, a precious gift, Star Travelers!
 

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!

There are two planets retrograde right now, with Mercury corkscrewing till the 22 nd of December in the sign of memory, introspection, of diving down to the depths to recover buried treasure and rising again.  Ka-Boom Uranus is all cattywampus in All Ahead Full Aries.  We notice that our impulse to forge ahead is cut short, falling to the ground before us.  Retrogrades are meant to give us time to mull over, plan, think ahead and think again.  If we were fortunate enough to be born during a retrograde phase of any orb, we are in touch with the future of that issue, and can be of enormous help to others who have trouble navigating!! Let's explore!! 

The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, balances in Libra. 

Our spousal planette Juno rises through traditional Capricorn at the top of the zodiac. She is all about family now! life.  Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.

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, jumps the hoop in Aries backwards.  This can bring back old friends, enemies, frienemeis, and more. Today she antagonizes our big ideas; that's what BFFs are for!

The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, rests at Home in Cancer, where she revitalizes our kitchen, redecorates, and takes home cooking to a healing level!

 

This marks the 13 th 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




Our Money

     I did warn you that things are definitely looking up!!  I must remark upon the Black Swan event known as the Trump Bump, and take my hat off to a miracle!

     Jupiter, the Magnifier, the cosmic Santa Claus, is in the Markets fifth house of speculation (and children, fun, recreation, enjoyment of same) which makes all of our efforts pay threefold.  If we make wise investments, we can share!  If we make sorry decisions, we can lose big.  A word to the Wise!!!

     Saturn, the planet of NO!!! occupies the markets sixth house of everyday every day; our daily routine and the things that give our time structure, schedules; of employees, fellow employees, those who work or serve us in some way; health, hygiene, and the way we worry about things, and best of all, small animals and pets.  If we have any investment in these areas, let's take a long long long hard look at our rationale, and maybe consider a further diversification.  Saturn in Sagittarius pretty much curtails foreign investments, and we will indeed see much repatriation go on in the corporate world.

    Another of the major factors of which we must be carefully cognizant is Pluto in Sagittarius, in the sixth house of everyday every day, of employees, of open enemies.  Pluto brings out our zits and boils them to a head, which is necessary for cleanliness and health, and which really hurts and looks disgusting.  Sagittarius is the law and The Law, all thing foreign and foreign to us, and religion, and journeys.  I think you can see what the real root of the matter is here!  The election of Donald Trump, as well as the Brexit was ordained in the world, as are other Black Swan events, the lancing of long stagnant boils.

     Uranus, the wildcard of the zodiac, who goes KA-BOOM! when we least expect it, is sitting at the very top of the markets chart, the House of Glory.  In Aries, the electric blue orb will kick start our ambitions, our gumption and our extremes.  Well it sure has!

     Moving slowly in its folds of dream, Neptune in the eighth house of Aquarius is responsible for all the dire prognostications of the market crashing, burning, dying on the ice and never coming back.  

   Transiting Jupiter is in Libra, in the fifth house of fortunate speculation, children, recreation, and fun.  Let's channel our energies and patterns wisely!!  We are stewards, and this is such a profound blessing to have the Magnifier here!!

    Mercury is in Scorpio backwarding through the fifth house of making money through speculation.  Let's focus on the recoup of what we may have lost, now through the 28th of December!!  We don't recommend Bitcoin!

    Mars is in Libra in the Markets fourth house of strong endings; let's act on this advice and dump what is not in our best interests now.

    Venus is in Scorpio, in the sixth house of what we do everyday, so pay attention to everything hidden, secret, or unremarked.

    The sun in Sagittarius in the sixth house of good health, good work, and good company!





The Future of A Christian Nation

Are we in fact a Christian nation, as denied by a US President?  What is our destiny?  Is New York City actually Babylon??  

      I prefer the Sibley birth chart for the United States, as opposed the more popular 2AM birth time;   the Sibley chart reflects best the history and changes faced by the US through its lifetime.  I also read in real time, thus am using sidereal astrology.  This is the chart.

     The chart reckoned by the tropical seasons is not so much different from the sidereal chart, only inasmuch as it is more detailed, and that detail is eerily accurate!  Both charts indicate our national good humor and optimism, as well as our obsession with sports, especially if that sport involves horses!  Sagittarius rising lets the world know that the USA is a natural cowboy, the icon that most often represents us at our best.  A  restless and freedom loving lot, we respect religion, education, and those who have traveled far in the world;  we won't tolerate being ordered around or talked down to! 

     The sidereal chart shows us to have a Scorpio eagle rising, again, highly accurate for us and for our spiritual reality.  The 20th degree of Scorpio fades into a Sagittarian first house, so there is little difference here, indeed, none to worry us! 

     With Pluto in the second house we know how to make do, make over, remake, and recycle;  we are hardy pioneers who flourish despite the odds.  With this placement we are a bit fixated on money, a little extravagant, and tend to make snap judgments, being quick minded and impatient.  The natural nobility and promise of our Aquarian soul as represented by the moon at 5 degrees of this sign shines our from the third house of The Populace, or We The People.  We desire freedom and liberty for all, whether or not they be our friends.

     We love science and mathematics, big loud machines and anything shiny and fast, says our Uranus in the sixth house of Taurus;  our versatility is proverbial, as is our eccentricity;  we as a nation have real concern for the rest of the globe.   Mars in Taurus lets everyone know we will defend what is ours.  The sun in Gemini imbues us with that duality so noted by foreigners, and keen observers of American culture;  we love what we love, and can put it away from us with an awful disassociation.  We have the sun, Venus, and Jupiter all in a row in Gemini, in the seventh house of Others, proof that we as a nation have unexpected opportunity for exceptional service to others.  Mercury in Cancer shows our patriotism, love of mom and apple pie big enough to be shared by everyone in the neighborhood, just like in Norman Rockwell's art. 

     Even our national reach for the medicine cabinet is here at the top of the chart with Neptune in detriment in Virgo.  Strange dietary fads, our obsession with hygiene, and labor troubles emanate from here, as well as our spiritual faculties, for we are a spiritual people with visions and prophetic dreams.  

     Typically American, we have no planetary ruler;  we are a nation of Laws, and those Laws have limits.
