⚸Livingॐ In☪The⚸MidstॐOf☪Eternity⚸: Celestial Readings Astrological Update March 18 – 25 2012

ascensionawareness:

The Moon (derived from the word ‘month’) rotates as fast as it revolves, so the same side is always facing us…the reason we never see the ‘dark side’ of the Moon. But as of 2009 NASA has finally given us a view of the Dark Side of the Moon. This would surprise our star-gazing ancestors but our origins and the stories woven in space are even more astounding. What is really is quite amazing is that every atom on Earth has a heritage in one star or another…

Without stars there would be no life…

Stars throughout the universe supply life with Light and heat. The sun warms the earth and keeps most of it’s water liquid. Sunlight also triggers the photosynthesis that (most) plants use to produce energy, ~energy that plant-eating animals then receive. Stars are catalystic to Life in another way, by forging most of the elements in the Cosmos. Before stars shone, the Universe had only hydrogen and helium, the two lightest elements and a bit of lithium, the third lightest element; but these three elements alone can’t construct the complex molecules that *life* needs. Life requires heavier elements ~ carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and iron, which stars create from lighter elements, then; spew into space when thy die. The oxygen you breathe, the calcium in your bones, and the iron in your blood were all manufactured by stars that died billions of years ago! And so, we are literally made up of the residue of the stars. This scientific fact has attracted more scientists into the realm of astro-physics than any other… Stars are the colorful gems that make the heaven shine and cause us to ponder what a *wonder* ~what an enigma life truly is…

Although there are countless stars in the Universe, like people, no two stars are the same: the brightest outshine the faintest a trillion times over… and different stars glow different colors, blue, white, orange, yellow and red. From Earth, the unaided eye can see several thousand(s) of stars, all part of our galactic band that crosses the sky, yet the Milky Way is so vast that for every visible star, the galaxy possesses millions more to the tune hundreds of billions, all partners in a colossal system held together by gravity, God’s cosmic glue… Were it not for gravity, nothing would be bound, here nor anywhere…Spirits would be looking for homes; (The group, the Police sang about it ” We are Spir-its ..in a material world”} yet here we are in this manifest world, bound by the laws of gravity~ (Gary Zukav has called it the highest form of ‘spiritual’ Love) and I can see why. Since without this very basic law of physics, we could not exist. Hence the ‘jumping-off point for this week’s astrological update: … . . …

I wish people would put the astronomical positions for the days (like when the sun’s 15° in Scorpio, for samhain) instead of approx. dates. We would all be better ‘attuned’ that way, in my opinion.

 astrological times for Wheel of the Year (in the Northern Hemisphere)
- Samhain is when the Sun is @ 15° in Scorpio
- Winter Solstice (Yule) is when the Sun is @ 0° in Capricorn
- Imbolc is when the Sun is @ 15° in Aquarius
- Vernal Equinox (Eostara) is when the sun is @ 0° in Aries
- Beltane is when the Sun is at 15° in Taurus
- Midsummer (Litha) is when the Sun is @ 0° in Cancer
- Lughnasa is when the Sun is @ 15° in Leo
- Autumn Equinox is when the sun is at 0° in Libra
 at least, I think those are the right times. It’s opposite, for the Southern Hemisphere (which is pictured above). Feel free to correct me, if I’m wrong.
