Justice Becomes Blinded

Esoteric Astrology as news for week of Nov. 16, 2016

The month of Scorpio has sped by quickly. Here we are in Scorpio’s last days. On Monday, Nov. 21, the Sun enters Sagittarius, sign of the archer and the sign of silence. Finally, silence after the raucous cacophony before and after Election Day. Scorpio certainly brought us tests we couldn’t have imagined, and those tests will continue as the U.S. struggles with widespread protests and intolerance. It is important to understand and teach children that America was founded upon freedom. Early settlers of America fled intolerance from the “old country” and came to America to establish freedom. Freedom of speech, of religion, of liberty, of equality, all under the Rule of Law. These were the principles and underpinnings of the first American Revolution.

Pluto (end of an era) was last in Capricorn at the American Revolution (1765–1783) when America was founded. Now, as Pluto again moves through Capricorn, the issues of freedom, liberty and the Rule of Law need to be reviewed. Sirius, the blue-white star that helped found and continues to guide America, is called the Star of Freedom. The present eruption of intolerance we see in America is due to lack of education concerning history, morals, values and citizenship. Sagittarius calls us to silence so we can contemplate these things. Sagittarius also shows us that when we don’t have tolerance and don’t understand or respect freedom of speech and liberty, that we blindfold justice for everyone. Our Declaration of Human Rights states: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act toward one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”

ARIES: Be prepared for a feeling of being tested, a continual sense of being watched, graded, guided and being prepared for further responsibility, especially in terms of tending to others’ finances and resources. Intimacy may be an issue—either you seek or reject it. You need to study the Ancient Mysteries (the foundations being astrology). Your questions are answered there.

TAURUS: You seek more than usual depth in relationships. Or you become silent and secretive, seeking your own counsel, seeking intimacy of spirit, following your own needs without considering the other. It’s best, though, to communicate with loved ones, informing them of your inner thoughts, hopes and wishes so you can work together more efficiently. You think there’s no money, but it’s all around you.

GEMINI: As your mind works overtime, you realize that lots of work that’s not obvious at first must be accomplished. If you look in corners, closets, under, over and above, in garages, storage units, your car(s), you’ll discover what needs to be eliminated so transformation and regeneration can come about. There’s special work to do with relationships, children, small animals and gardens, all needing play, color, communication, new intentions, a re-commitment (from you). No purple or brown, though.

CANCER: You feel worried and anxious about family members—concerned about their choices, abilities, resources and lives. There may be a family member in a state of transition. You worry about someone female, perhaps a daughter, mother, sister. You know at a moment’s notice you’ll travel anywhere to help. In the meantime, bake sugar cookies, pies, breads, dumplings, stews and casseroles. You need soothing and gardening.

LEO: You need to head over to Cancer’s home for food. Then you need respite from the extreme amounts of work you’re encountering. Sometimes you don’t know why you’re doing this work. It seems you need more art, whether it’s yours or another’s. Relationships are either nebulous or too strict for words. Something usually hidden at home becomes illumined.

VIRGO: With Mercury, your personal messenger, traveling through the sign of justice, your mind is extremely active, focusing first on yourself, your foundation, home and relationships. Then a depth of perception occurs. As your words become very serious, almost mysterious, you call forth all parts of yourself to cooperate, ponder upon, ruminate, assess and then become intimate with the real truth.

LIBRA: The Sun calls you to focus upon your past and present values. They give you a self-awareness and perhaps also the needs of humanity. Assess your financial picture—how you use money, how your money supports self, family and those in need, and how money emotionally supports your way of life. For the next month appreciate all that you have, all people and things, small and large. Love grows with gratitude.

SCORPIO: The veils are dropping between realities so humanity can see more expanded realities. In the meantime, you/we are to be anthropologists, observing people’s behaviors. Observing quietly with curiosity allows us to understand the two polarities; what’s staged (unreal), entraining the masses, and, on the other side, the Forces of Light, building the new reality as the old is destroyed. You have the ability to discern the difference.

SAGITTARIUS: You must go on a retreat from your usual daily life, plans, agendas and responsibilities. Eat well, take it easy, do personal research, work on private projects, ponder upon needs and values that emerge from quiet and solitude. Also, a distance is to be created, allowing you more perspective about how you’re living, what pleases you, and what you need. Give yourself a serious talk.

CAPRICORN: Jupiter is calling you into the world. You’re preparing for this; assessing goals, hopes, wishes and priorities in terms of what to say and give to others. You want to be perceived in a certain way. Know you are valuable and respected. Often when greatness enters a group, there can be resistance. Why? People cannot absorb the Sun’s light streaming through great people. You are that greatness.

AQUARIUS: Your vitality at this time is keeping you out and about in the world. Notice that you’re completing tasks and displaying special abilities. For the next month ponder upon how and what you want in the future. This is a time of assessing these things. It’s a time to consider new plans based upon your feelings and needs. Perhaps you consider some sort of move. It’s possible. New values and resources come forth.

PISCES: Making contact so that love and understanding can be released is important to you. However, others don’t often think like you. Compassion rules the life of Pisces. Everyone is not a Pisces. You might stand alone this month and next. Focus upon study, reading, art, music, ideas becoming ideals within you. Create on paper (color, ink, drawing, painting, sculpture, etc.) your next endeavor. Include gardens, schools, several geodesic domes and the idea of the Commons.
