CHRISTMAS ASTROLOGY AND MESSAGE:
With the New Moon on Friday, Dec. 23rd, so close to Christmas even occurring in the constellation of Mula Nakshatra (Sagittarius 0-13.20) it appears that rebirth from the darkness and galactic center of the universe is ready to happen with goddess Niriti wanting to push us toward enlightenment and an awakening. We need to focus on the positive and be grateful as the forces of darkness continue to want to march us into more fear about nuclear wars and catastrophes. Yes, it has been a difficult year financially and the Ukraine/Russia mess can easily make us feel hopeless. Yet, locally, there is so much we can do in our communities to make a difference with homeless and with local food bank donations and this has to continue all year and not just through the Christmas Season. There are good people everywhere and there are more of them than those caught up in darkness. Remember to make a difference in someone’s life and we are here to be kind and loving and not cower on fear waiting for the next shoe to drop.
I love this wonderful message from Yogananda about the Birth of Christ at Christmas and it reminds me of the need for rebirth at this time of year. Whatever religion you are connected to, the importance of rebirth of our inner Divinity is important at this time of year and particularly with Jupiter moving forward in Pisces and moving toward Revati Nakshatra, a place of liberation. .
Every day, every hour, every golden second, Christ has been knocking… Now, in this august sacred dawn, Christ is especially coming in answer to your inner call, to awaken his Christ Consciousness Omnipresence within you.
This Christ of Everywhere is sleeping in the breast of Eternity; He loves to take new birth at any time, anywhere, especially in the warmth of your true affection. Though the Infinite Christ is present in every speck of space as the splendor of ever new wisdom and creative expression, you can never see Him unless He chooses to be seen in the cradle of your unceasing devotion. The cozy crib of your heart has for a very long time been small, holding self-love alone; now you must make it enormous, so that social, national, international, and Cosmic Christ-love may be born there and become One Love.
The Infinite Christ is everywhere; worship His nativity in Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Moslem, Jewish, and other true religious temples. Every expression of Truth flows from the All-pervading Christ perception, so learn to worship that sacred Universal Intelligence in every pure religion, belief, and teaching. Since the Cosmic Christ dreamed into existence the divine being that is man, you should celebrate the birth of Christ in your newly awakened equal love for every nationality and race.
