Astrology - Risa D'Angeles

Esoteric astrology as news for the week of Jan. 25 through Jan. 31:

The sun entered Aquarius last Sunday, prior to the lunar eclipse. Aquarius is the “Light that shines on Earth and across the sea.” We (seekers, aspirants, disciples, initiates) have returned to Earth from the summit of Capricorn; on the mountain we absorbed the light supernal (heavenly light) for humanity. We now in Aquarius radiate that light. This light becomes the “waters of life for thirsty humanity.” 
The keynotes of Aquarius are cooperation (cooperatives), collaboration and community. Uranus in Aries and later in Taurus provides the “quickening” needed to manifest the new era’s “new ways of being.” Aquarius is the sign of humanity working together, building community and cooperatives. 
What are cooperatives? Cooperatives are democratically governed groups, operating on an at-cost-not-for-profit basis, focusing on economic and social well-being of people and nations worldwide. They foster and encourage cooperative development, which generates local wealth, employment and marketplace interactions. It’s a plan of action whose time has come. The thought of continuing under big corporation (BC) agendas is no longer feasible, acceptable, attractive, understandable or sustainable. BC is part of the past, lifeless world of greed and mass control. 
Cooperatives fulfill the need of the 99 percent (humanity), seek what is local and sustainable, are consumer-owned and member-controlled — benefits that create communality and community. Cooperatives differ completely from profit-driven enterprises. Cooperatives are “people-centered enterprises,” operating under values and principles guiding cooperatives worldwide — self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. Cooperative members believe in the ethical values — honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others. Farmers in cooperatives say with pride, “I’m a farmer and I’m an owner.” Where is a cooperative near you?
