"There is however another spirit which may be termed the divine, to which Jesus Christ refers when He declares that man must be born of its quickening and baptized with its living fire. Souls deprived of that spirit are accounted as dead, though they are possessed of the human spirit. His Holiness Jesus Christ has pronounced them dead inasmuch as they have no portion of the divine spirit. He says: "Let the dead bury their dead." In another instance He declares: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit." By this He means that souls though alive in the human kingdom are nevertheless dead if devoid of this particular spirit of divine quickening. They have not partaken of the divine life of the higher kingdom; for the soul which partakes of the power of the divine spirit is verily living."

Forecast for the 12 Zodiac Signs ~ Releasing the Fire of your True Inner Purpose through 2012
Ninth Sign- Sagittarius Key for 2012 Your enthusiastic energy inspires even the most downtrodden, removing prejudice, pointing to the direction of Home.
Most intelligent spark like a comet sailing through the world, a crusade of knowledge is ready to be delivered. We all see that you know what is going on. Things are bothering you in the world, but you are not about to allow it all to ruin your life! Your nature is creative, expansive, visionary and you want to help make life better for everyone by presenting them passionately a paradigm adjustment that will be better than any mood altering medicine ever created. Your understanding of the big picture might make some nervous, but you don't care. It's about time someone told them the truth.
The Moon's Nodes have been in your own sign since March 2011 and will continue through August 2012. This combination causes a strong intuition within you with world and financial events. If you are in investment/financial professions, for a year or more you've had your pulse on the unbelievable manipulations, exposures, posturing games and giving people guidance with their securities and their lives in order to get ready for something. With the Nodes connected to your Sun within this period, people trust you and they feel pretty much the same way; you're simply telling them frankly how it is, and they better get ready.
Until the middle of June 2012, Jupiter has been in an inconjunct with your Sun since last Summer 2010. Too many surprise expenses, visits, accidents, sicknesses, trips, adjustments, change of plans, family disputes....it seems like you just settle down into your new course or goals, and whoops! someone else's plans interfere with what you thought was planned.
Here are the dates of the disruptions. Might as well not plan on anything too important during these times.
Those of you born November 22 to 26th: Jupiter in Taurus inconjuncts your Sun from November 7 through February 4 2012, creating a shifting uneasy not able to really stick with a plan or goal kind of cycle, and unexpected visitors at the last minute; unexpected travel, engagements, and then strange alone times with some difficulties connecting with people when you need them.
If you were born between November 27th through 29th, your frustrating period was last week of October into November 6th 2011, but watch out, it is returning with the same incongruent disconnections with people and their expectations versus your expectations on February 11 through 29th 2012.
If you were born between November 30 through December 3, Your trials are between March 1 through 22 2012.
This period of testing causes you to go into your space of tolerance and try to be unattached to outcomes. You're taking a Zen kind of approach to the problems with an understanding that everyone is learning something important and you must allow this process to happen even though it is inconveniencing you.
If you were born between December 4 through 11th, the period you need to watch out for is on March 22 through April 29 2012. You are not usually prone to apathy and hopeless attitudes, but this might be a time when it really hits you; "What's the point anyway..why should I care anymore?" Turn it into a bittersweet moment every warrior hits when in between battles and there's that place of profound philosophical reflection before you go back into the fight again.
If born between December 12th through 21st, Jupiter in Taurus inconjuncts your Sun on April 30 through June 12 2012. Don't worry, don't feel defeated.....what you desire will happen, there is just a short delay and your love and sincerity will be rewarded.
After June 12 2012 for the rest of the year, Jupiter moves into Gemini and opposes your Sun which is a nice long cycle of exchange of ideas and opportunities back and forth taking turns with people who need you and you need them. There may be some long distance trips and lots of coming and goings, as this opposition usually indicates necessary travels by you or those you work with or love, leaving and returning often.
The main theme will be lots of movement all around the globe, lots of mind movement, expansion and exploring new concepts and so much questioning, "Why? how could this be? What do we do now?"
Which leads to this short excerpt of a Mars issue which will come in another article, but here it is.
Eat enough protein and exercise carefully. This is not a good time for extreme anything. Slow down comet person, and count to 10, twice, before you rush into any decisions. You know why? Because you are getting caught up in the anxiousness permeating the planet and this is one time your hunches to rush into something before it's gone, might be premature. When you think about it, talk to people, do a little research, you are going to be more accurate and convinced you're hitting the nail right on the big huge head. Then your job is to convince everyone else to listen to you.
So, maybe I should be asking all you Sag's what you think this volatile Mars in Virgo is beginning now leading up to hard long peak, a stationary retrograde position at 23* Virgo this January 23 2012?
I'm going to lay it all out here and line up the problems: This Mars is in a hard square to Iran's Neptune and oppose their Mars in Pisces ( accusations of a new deception escalate to point of triggering assault); It conjoins Obama's Mars exact in the 7th/8th house of open enemies, connected to Aries on the 3rd house of an emergency decisions, and also ruling the Scorpio on the 10th, of executive orders; it inconjuncts the U.S. Natal (1789) Mercury in the 7th of incomplete information with open enemies and rules the 10th house of a supreme authority calling it out; and it conjoins the U.S. Conceptional Neptune at 22* Virgo in the 9th house of morals, ethics, cultural/religious situations in a dynamic confrontation or pronouncement of judgment upon some foreign invasive ideas. It inconjuncts Russia's Midheaven, meaning Russia is not in agreement with some action or is angry no one listened to them all this time and now its happening and is disturbed that the event has come and their people are not ready. It inconjunct's Mexico's Saturn...like Russia, forced to adjust to an uncomfortable global situation; It squares Iraq's Hades and Israel's Uranus, Egypt's Moon and Black Moon at 20* Gemini, putting these countries on a possible military technological escalation of defensiveness; and it happens to be in frustrating aspects with about 80% of the charts I've been seeing.
Name any one of the global issues right now and amp it up to a point of a cork popping, ( including those signs and red flags they have been parading on the History and TLC in the past year) and we have a big problem. ( Dear me! Your zodiac Sign pulled me right into another Global Crisis Article in the works..not meaning to include it here in the middle of your article!)
Sagittarius, your mission is clear.
By the heart and mind connected, and your prophetic tongue, somehow, by the very act of preparing people, working with people, being their cheerleader and getting your own stuff together, positive prayer, out loud power affirmations, deep inner meditation upon the one true source filling with gratitude for your connection, the event may never take place because your mind connected to the planetary hearts of Good Will, all with the same intention to intend peace, intend security, intend protection, intend a miracle upon this very Earth, makes it so.
Why? Because your belief in Good and intercession and the Quantum activity that works outside the predictable logical outcomes is more powerful than any of these powder kegs triggered by those who have human agendas and reasons.
Uranus in Aries trines your Sun now throughout 2012 and beyond, and is an inspiration to be honest and bold with your heart's desires. You can't help but be truthful and follow your truth at this time. Whatever changes you feel will create a deeper experience between you and your mate, your bold confrontation towards greater transparency pulls your loved one deeper into your heart and creates an almost foreign experience for both of you now. This Fire of True Love makes life Beautiful to be in.
Beloved Sagittarius, sing your music, direct your clients, teach your students and educate your friends.....be passionate and positive and your fire will ignite a world to come together and unite in the Courage and Gratitude for all we have had that has been good and wonderful, and all that could be in the future if we preserve and protect the potential of Godhood one by one by one on this Beautiful Blue Planet.
