God Is Love & Love Is All Around Us

Jupiter, the planet representing the Creator (God) in astrology, is exalted (thrilled, happy) at 15º Cancer, in the very Center of the Soul! At this spot there is Anahata, i.e. Heart chakra, and here we learn how to love ourselves and be close to ourselves. Here, in astrologic sense we connect all our extremes, we connect mother and father within, i.e. we accept ourselves, which is the ultimate task of each one of us. Only through acceptance of our parents, who are always our Sun and Moon, we accept ourselves and make contact with the Creator (God) within. It is the right and only way to God, through loving one's self.
There are 7 alchemy steps towards transformation, and the main is the one related to alchemy illumination which speaks of the 4th step, of Conjunction, of the holy marriage of male and female aspects within, of conjunction of Sun (gold) and Moon (silver), of royal wedding. This step is also related to the most important, fourth, lunar chakra in the heart region, that connects the lower energy level (body, unconscious) with the upper one (mind, conscious). The act of inner love development is what matters here, the acceptance of one's self, of parents - father (Sun) and mother (Moon), and the aim is to reconcile consciousness (Sun) with feelings (Moon) at 15º Cancer and reach the great knowledge (Jupiter)… In secret alchemy experiments the salt symbolizes unification, so cleansing of body with sea salt is very beneficial, for it "cleans" from painful emotions and negative energy at the deepest level…
It takes a lot of courage and passion to find the way to Self and God. We have the experience of uniting when we love somebody, but also when we fill the unity with nature and space… Before Uniting takes place in our lives, one may be lost and prone to wandering around, seeking for a partner at all costs, and becoming jealous and possessive when the ideal other half is found… On the other hand, the sign that one is going through uniting is the balance, increased trust and inner peace in one's life…
So, in a big picture, the most important, heart, lunar, fourth chakra vibrates from the Soul Center, at 15º Cancer (Jupiter exaltation), at the spot where Zeus (Jupiter) will love only Hera and be faithful to her, unless she fills her Heart with suspicions, fears (Saturn – fear, suspicion, in Cancer and in exile), and unless she is angry (Cancer is the sign of Mars' fall). It is necessary for her to be joyful (Jupiter). So, is it possible to conclude that the "secret of the stone of wisdom" lives in the Soul Center, at 15º Cancer, at the degree where the opposites are being united within, where we primarily reconcile our parents, our Sun and Moon? I would say that the answer is -- yes…
If we now take a look at 29º Cancer, the spot in Zodiac where the Third Eye vibrates, i.e. the sixth energy center, the sixth chakra, then I must tell you as an astrologist that this is very specific place within 360 degrees, for this is the crossing from dark to light, here two eyes (Moon and Sun are lights, our eyes, beside being our parents) touch, and that is the spot between the eyebrows where we can change beliefs in order for circumstances to change… This act of changing beliefs is what brings us closer to Creator, God (Jupiter). Ask yourself, is everything the way you believe it is? Our inner sight, our Third Eye (sixth chakra, Jupiter chakra) says it is not at all the way we think it is. Here, we develop our intuition.
The sixth chakra creates the ring with the second one (Venus) around hearth chakra as a central one, and that is how we end up with the middle ring around our Heart! Venus' energy center has the main task to lose the feeling of guilt and to learn to enjoy. Venus belongs to lower energy centers (Body), while Jupiter chakra represents upper centers (Mind). Higher octave of Venus is Neptune (paradise) – in order to live paradise on Earth we have to change our beliefs. One of typical representatives of countries in symbolism of 29º Cancer (Jupiter chakra) might be Netherlands, the country that "sees further".
On the other hand, 27º Pisces is Venus' exaltation (it is thrilled, joyful). In Pisces, everything is wonderful and quiet, here we do not contemplate, do not speak aloud, here we pray and believe, and personal faith gets stronger only in constant silence. The power of prayer before bed is enormous. When we pray in silence and from the heart -- it is pure, unconditional love, and it is the way to Creator, God. The sign of Pisces is also the sign where Jupiter (God) feels at home, because Jupiter is primary, traditional ruler of Pisces, while Neptune is new, modern ruler. Venus (love) feels the best in the last pentad (25º - 30º) of Pisces, which has symbolism of Sun and Venus, and when Sun and Venus touch it is Love, and they create pentagram, the symbol of love. In this place in Zodiac Angels live too, and making contact with personal Angels through prayer is wonderful channel to Love, to God.
Neptune (paradise) as the higher octave of Venus is exalted (joyful) at 21º Aquarius, and in fall across the Zodiac, at 21º Leo. This axis in Zodiac requires lot of personal fate from us. Here lives the magic, here Angels do "fall" (especially at 21º Leo), here we need a lot of meditation and purity. Average person easily "get caught" in lower vibrations of Neptune, because we are all only human. Only the "awakened" person may live the pure Neptune, and that is life without vices. How many of us is ready to abandon everything earthly and to let the Holy Spirit to guide us? I am sure very few, because, I must repeat, we are only human, and spirituality also means a certain state of physiology. Spiritual is the one ready to focus his Love only on serving others without expectations, and to see it as joy and love, not as being a victim…
We live now in the last pentad of Pisces (5º - 0º), and we are getting ready for the Age of Aquarius, that will begin when the precession point come to 29º Aquarius 59’59’’. But, we already have the dawn before the New Age, the Age of Aquarius, and we can feel the influence of that age in many spiritual movements that develop rapidly. But, while being in Pisces it is possible not to see everything clearly, i.e. lot of things are "muddy", this is the time in which one should be "awakened" and in silence, in order to recognize the right Teacher among the many spiritualists!
One thing is certain, God is Love and Love is all around us. The act of accepting one's self is the first step on the way to God within. One does not have to go to church, temple, sacred place to be connected to God. One does not need the Teacher to initiate him or impose his beliefs. As long as there is the person whom we should worship because it is required by his spiritual organization or movement -- we will be far away from God. In the moment when we start to love only ourselves, it is the sign that we connected with God! Because, by loving one's self we also love all others who are part of us, for I am You -- You are Me!
Love & Light,
