We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident


Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter).

The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership.

Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.  

Esoteric Astrology as News for Week of July 1

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Your task in the upcoming times is to initiate the new culture and civilization, create communities that sustain large groups of people, gather groups of like minds together to follow the initiating steps you create. You then hand the tasks over to those who can build and sustain your ideas. You must understand the importance of this work. You are, on spiritual levels, Mercury, the messenger.

taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
What others (only a few) have initiated in creating the new world you are to study, refine and essentially stabilize. You often present and offer these ideas to the larger world. Many are asleep. Experiment with them in your like-minded group. You are to sustain the new reality and prepare for seven generations to come. You are Vulcan, forging lead into gold.

geminiGemini May 22–June 20

You learn about life-giving, sustainable principles for humanity—ideas that most are unaware of as of yet. But humanity is actually seeking them. Being brilliant, mercurial and curious, you must first incorporate these principles into your life and distribute them. You’re to do this with patience, intelligence, scientific thought and love. You’re Venus, synthesizing all dualities.


cancerCancer June 21–July 20

You’re to nurture new ideas, allow them to enter your world, using your resources for research. You’re to also tend to those bringing the new information forth. Through you, the birth of a new culture and civilization comes forth. You’re to open the gates so impressions for a new world can come through. The entire world is your family. You work with Neptune, the dissolver, the refiner, the soul.


leoLeo July 21–August 22
You’re to use the new information creatively, always seeking ways that assist the kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human). You’re a leader, a king or queen, the artist. People listen to you because you carry the heart of the Sun’s magnetism. You’re to create new sustaining projects. These give you greater self-identity. Later you lovingly offer your gifts to humanity, the world disciple. You are the Sun, the life-giving force. Recite the Gayatri (Hymn to the Sun) daily.

virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
Always you hold a new state of consciousness, a new world. After reaching personality integration, you are able to bring forth the new materiality, which is the sharing principle. It will be your task to organize it into a structure understandable by humanity. The time is soon, though not yet. Study how humanity is to be fed. You, Ceres, are the moon hiding Vulcan. Water and soil are your gold.

libraLibra September 23–October 22

You’re to bring forth justice, taking the blindfold off Lady Justice. She holds the scales. You work with Gemini and Cancer creating economic stability humanity will need as the old economic structures dissolve. You are to help humanity understand their true identity and create relationships where none existed. You establish right human relations. You’re Uranus, where the new rhythms, archetypes, culture and civilization originates.


scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21

Your task is to first pass the nine tests of Mars; to realize you’re in a constant cycle of life, death, regeneration, and transformation. You’re the phoenix rising from the ashes, the disciple in the temple of wisdom (learning astrology). You prepare for the upcoming changes that will at first distress and then regenerate suffering humanity. You will be one of the teachers during the upcoming time. You are Mars, lord of aspiration.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20

You’re to “lead the way” by offering new goals to humanity, moving us toward a sharing society. You’re the professor, teaching ancient (yet future) philosophies to those seeking the new culture and civilization, new ways of thinking which bring order and organization to the new world. First you need education in these things yourself. How will you learn? You are Earth, the mother and the Holy Spirit all in one.

capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20

You know how to climb mountains. The constitution of Man/Mind is a mountain, the biblical Jacob’s Ladder, angels climbing up (toward Spirit) and down (into matter). Humanity, in matter for 18 million years, is seeking the path of return. You will teach humanity what are appropriate shoes, clothes, foods and climbing gear to ascend the mountain, become the initiate and reach for the Sun. You are to consider yourself a unicorn and Saturn, the teacher of time.


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18

Your tasks, future-oriented yet also for the present, are many. You’re to build a spaceship, geodesic dome and an Arc—environments to grow fish (tilapia), vegetables, fruits and medicinals. You’re to create community, a template of how humanity will need to live. You’re to offer yourself as everyone’s friend. You love humanity. From a distance. You work with Jupiter, which is love from the heart of the Sun.

piscesPisces February 19–March 20

Your task is to build temples of study where everyone can be re-educated, their minds and hearts uplifted through understanding prayer, meditation and invocation. You’re to teach the “little ones” (seekers), offer festivals of light and unite heaven and Earth through the study of the stars, planets and Sun (astrology). You’re to work with Aquarius until the communities are built and offer the mantram of direction (Great Invocation) to the world. You are Pluto, the transformer with Purpose and the Plan.
