New Moon Leo: Leadership in the New Age

by Caroline on July 24, 2014

Monday 28 July 2014

When I think of the sign of Leo I’m often reminded of the tawny-maned lion ‘Aslan’ from C.S. Lewis’ stories of four children in the land of Narnia. Aslan was Lewis’ metaphor for the Christ consciousness – love of all, kindness, patience, gentleness, inclusiveness, selflessness, focus on the highest good of the greatest number, intelligence in action and wisdom, yet also great power, strength of will, belief and fortitude.

Could we discuss the Aslan-type figure as a metaphor for the type of person or group of people the world now needs to lead it, ‘out of darkness into light’?  Is this the new group of world servers talked about by Alice Bailey?

As a unit of energies we can see this group providing all the qualities we need in those who should govern us. The individuals and groups serving the world may be working on their own projects yet they can be seen as one in consciousness. Combining their different methods and aims they look like a rainbow of colours together forming a perfect light which when focussed by one overriding purpose – of planetary and human betterment – gives us a Christ or Aslan-type leader. Could we be witnessing the emerging prototype of a new form of world governance by the spiritual groups acting as one mind, heart and will?

Full Moon Cancer: Light & Dark

by Caroline on July 5, 2014

Nicholas-Roerich-Song of the Waterfall
Put aside all prejudices — think freely. Be not downcast but full of hope. Flee not from life, but walk the path of salvation. Nicholas Roerich

Cancer rules our birth from the realm of the soul which is free from illusion, into this world of glamour and maya, pain, suffering and escapism. It all sounds a bit dismal when you think of it like this, especially as we appear to have no knowledge of this process. But what we do know is that we can change this from an unconscious act into one of lighted understanding. We have choice – do we identify ourselves with all these illusions and continue the wheel of rebirth, or do we set to work to unchain ourselves?

To misquote Nietzsche, we’re all free but we keep putting ourselves in chains. While the Sun transits Cancer we can utilise the energies of this constellation to see more clearly the chains that bind us. To do this we start with the mother and the home, two ideas, along with birth, attributed to Cancer.

It can be said that we’re all like children chained to the apron strings of the Great Mother Nature. Bounteous, sacrificial and beautiful in her role as giver of life to our body, she is also the possessive, over-protective mother who tries to hold us close to her ample bosom promising endless sustenance if we don’t threaten her dominance.

Our task is to cut these luxurious apron strings that bind us to her, but not out of anger or rejection, but with a loving understanding that this is the best and only way. Difficult as this is due to our closeness to this great being – she is us and we are her – it is something we all must do. It’s a slow process done over lifetimes of practicing dispassion, detachment and discrimination. We can perhaps help ourselves by asking: ‘What am I hanging onto in my life that I once needed and served me well, but is now only a form of bondage?

New Moon Cancer: The ‘Boat People’

by Caroline on June 26, 2014

Discussion topic: The ‘Boat People’.

Perhaps the key to this new moon in Cancer discussion is: what does ‘home’ mean?
Tree sap near kyre ave kingswood may 2013
Boat people, refugees, illegal immigrants, scared, desperate, queue jumpers, job takers, scammers… depending on our perspective of these people seeking asylum and a new life in Australia will be how we describe them. And our perspective is formed from our own experiences, attitudes, conditioning, prejudices, and fears. In turn all these things contribute to our concept of who ‘I’ am and what is acceptable for me and what is okay for others. In turn it is said that we mirror the world through the lens of our own sense of who we are.

So what does that mean for our thoughts on the ‘boat people’ and what we each want to say about them?

This is one of the more sensitive subjects we could choose to discuss and I want to re-iterate that there are no right and wrong answers or viewpoints in our group discussions. It’s just a great place to come together in safety and trust to share our ideas and learn from others while contributing to the thought-form of solution to world problems.

Our discussion group focusses on bringing a spiritual perspective to the world’s really hard issues like this one. So perhaps we can ask: ‘what does my soul think of this issue?’
