Horoscope for the Week of September 28, 2003

27 September 2003

Tip of the Week

Last week on September 20, Mercury finally went direct after three tough weeks of it being retrograde in the sign of Virgo. For many, this was a time-period of confusion, changing minds, hurricanes, computer virus mishaps and other communications difficulties. Some will remember the last two days as being the toughest in the 24-day event. Then on September 23, The Sun made its official entry into the sign of Libra, there joining with fair Venus. Given that this is the sign of the scales, balance, beauty, law, love, relationship and harmony etcetera, one might suppose that we might be clear of such challenges.

The nature of Libra is to create and restore balance. Yet, the process of establishing it is rarely smooth and harmonious. It takes concentration, determination and focus. Even then, the scales are extremely delicate and can very easily become imbalanced once again as the moody Moon moves. The climax of this process will arrive on about October 5. Furthermore, retrograde Mars finally stations, turns direct again and makes its closest approach to forming a conjunction, as seen from the earth, on September 27. This is potentially a very explosive aspect. Unexpected events of significant magnitude are a likely possibility, on both personal and collective levels. From this event, old unions will dissolve and yet even greater collaborations are likely to take their place.

Whatever the outcome, trust that divine order and intelligence is at work and play as ever and ever, no matter how chaotic things and events may appear. Be here now in your heart and peace will be yours. This week is a tribute to Sun and Venus in loving Libra.

Aries (Mar 21 - AP 20)

Stirring and poking the fires of love is creating excitement and sparks. Some measure of anxiety and fear usually accompanies such experiences creating that unique blend of emotions that lovers often crave. Touch is what can bring us to the here and now and out of the jumpy and wandering mind. The same is true of beauty and when the two combine, pleasure occurs. This awakening of desire is natural and good when love is present. As for the politics that follow, well all is good when the heart is wide open and the mind is free of expectation. Flow!

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Creating more peace, harmony and balance in your everyday routine continues. This includes paying more attention to your health and welfare. Balanced diet, ample exercise, effective hygiene and moderate grooming are the classical four corners. Add beauty to the list regarding clothing and attire and the magic truly comes alive. The sixth ingredient the number of Venus is however the most important of all and it is true love. What this exactly feels like is unexplainable to compare with the feeling. See from the heart into the heart of others and you will get the higher taste. This is the supreme measure of true health.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

With the Sun and Venus currently in Libra, your heart and creative passions are awake. Feeling of expansion and awareness are present in inexplicable ways. This is so because the heart is actually the location of the higher mind. Our current worldview places more emphasis on knowledge and intellect. These are actually aspects of the lower mind. The lower mind of intellect differentiates, divides and categorizes while the higher mind of heart unifies. In fact, the spiritual masters acknowledge that the heart is the portal to the timeless soul. Let us experiment and truly see that it is so.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

Creating a sanctuary in your home is the call now. How it looks is up to you. Yet, the more you create a beautiful space the more inspiration will you feel. While the reference is to your living space, where you actually are at any given moment, is the home of your heart. More precious than the crown jewels and more powerful than an atomic bomb, the "Heart Chakra" is the place where heaven and earth merge as one. The solution to the riddle occurs when the heart is open wide and shines brightly for the beauty and power is without compare. Begin with your true home.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 22)

Leo is the sign that corresponds most closely to the heart. Leo in its true splendor is innocent, playful and creative like a child. Leo is also the sign of the ego personality. This relatively and apparently separate entity is troublesome especially when comparative thinking creates feelings of superiority and inferiority. Between the extremes of love and hate, respect resides. When this balance distributes equally both within and without, realizations of true love give birth to the playful, innocence of the child. This is the key to heaven's gates now and forevermore.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

The desire for love, affection, pleasure and beauty meets with satisfaction through transcendental experiences. While many interpret this transcendence as levitation or release from the physical body, it actually is a process of breaking free of the grip of the busy lower mind. Another attempt at definition is the process of getting out of one's own way. Again, the divisionary intellect is in the way. Deep union can come in a variety of forms. Commonly, people experience it through union with another being, but not necessarily so. Meditate to create true communion.

Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 22)

Like cupid with arrows to pierce the heart and awaken love, you are eager to hit some targets. You will do whatever it takes to express your feelings freely and fully. Expect that this will require courage and effort to overcome the many fears that are in your way. As you purge old beliefs and perceptions, you are freer to see what was hidden from your sights just a short while ago. A new way of seeing and being in the world is emerging. Come from the heart and you will hit your targets!

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 22)

Stilling the mind is the means to awaken unconditional love. The intellectual aspect of our mind is full of personal perceptions, opinions, expectations, beliefs and other such limitations that stand in the way of expanded awareness. Unconditional love is also a feature of true compassion, which is an experience of soul. Any person who feels true compassion is a person who has a connection to their soul in a very real way. Although every person is an extension of his or her soul, not every person has a conscious soul link. Ask with sincerity in your heart and you will receive.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

The great teachers say that true love begins with one's self. Reference here is to one's higher self, which is synonymous with soul. We pass the test of such love when we can perceive all others, regardless of their actions, with acceptance, compassion and without judgment or reaction. The recognition that all of humanity is one great family is another indication of true self-love. To many, this will sound like a contradiction and idealistic weakness. That is the riddle to solve. Recognition that what we encounter out there is really a projected reflection of what is within is a sure sign of success.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Taking responsibility for the whole of humanity is an indication that a person in his or her heart center. This does not mean gaining authority over others per se. In a simple sense, it means recognizing that each person has a right to exist, does count and does make a difference. The reductionism principle, which is the negative offspring of science, contributes to people thinking and behaving with short-term thinking as though their actions and contributions, or lack thereof, do not make a difference. The flapping of the wings of a butterfly contributes to hurricanes.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

The words, religion, community, communion, unity and yoga are all synonyms. Each and severally, these words indicate a merging of hearts and mind, body and soul. When people gather to share, in whatever respect, divinity reveals itself more fully. Singing devotionally is an especially powerful means of opening the heart and awakening to the immanent, all pervasive spirit. Unfortunately, devotion to higher principles like the Goddess, the Solar Logos and the Holy Spirit etcetera, is no longer popular, although it is an essential means to peace and harmony. Will you help to bring it back in vogue?

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Some say that love is letting go of fear. Fear begins and ends in the mind. At best, fear serves to protect us and triggers our built in fight or flight mechanism. Living fearfully or in a constant state of fear means that we live in and from the mind rather than the heart. The mind, in this sense, is filled with expectations and attachments and is often indicative of an over active imagination. Currently, in most cultures of the world fear in the form of information is a weapon to frighten people into submission and compulsion. Purge your fears by learning to think with your heart and feel with your mind.
