Astrology Explained: THE KARMA OF LOVE, By Farley Malorrus

The Karma of Love,

By Farley Malorrus

This Love thing is SO important when it comes to understanding KARMA, as SO MANY of us freely give our love to parents, friends, spouses, children, and siblings only for us to rarely be #1 to them. How many millions of women are involved in love affairs and marriage and they consider their man #1 in their hearts only to feel 'way down' on the list below parents, job, close buds, tv shows, sports, children, beer, pot, liquor, girlfriends, then maybe YOU. Same with the guys, it's unrequited love on many ends on this planet where we give our love willingly and people become our heroes or heroines, only for us to be way down on the priority list. Men often times come 2nd to their cats, their dog, their female friends, the kids, their woman's group, working out, then comes them. How many millions of children freely give love to their parents, making them #1 no matter what, and yet the parents put their career, their tv shows, their parents, their brothers and sisters, even their friends and hobbies ahead of the kids.

It sucks often to be in a world where love can be graded or judged like the colors of the spectrum, and where love is so often unbalanced. I've studied relationships much of my life, and I've come to the conclusion that the reason why the divorce rate is so high is that if people are not #1 mutually, to each other, that the marriage will never work. I know my parents argue, fight, and yell now for 69 years of matrimony, but what freaks me out is that with all that abuse, they are still #1 to each other, and that is why the marriage works. Dads made tons of mistakes, and Mom has made few, but that marriage goes strong because they are #1 to each other and it's obvious, because the World and everyone in it is clearly #2 and beyond.

Everyone LOVES feeling special and who wouldn't want to feel #1? When I was on Los Angeles radio from 1983 to 1996, it seemed that no matter what I did, or where I went, there were adoring fans, and people who assumed I was their friend when I hardly knew them. It was a good feeling to have so much love and affection then. Unlike most common people, I had to be on the radio, with a hit show, at 12 noon to gain the attention, love, and respect of people who would not ordinarily give 2 cents for me, if I were not on the radio. Sadly, but that is how life works! Doctors, lawyers, rock stars, talk show hosts, djs, musicians, artists, singers, dancers, pretty people, models, and those with great bodies, and a large bank account easily get the adoration, and craving of love and friendship from people coming out of nowhere. It is how the human species works. When we see an "Alpha," or pack leader, someone who rises to the top, is in front of the crowd, 'everyone' wants to love that person, be with that person, be accepted by that person, and be loved by that person. It does not guarantee you will get love back mutually, and maybe that is why a lot of celebrities run off with each other, because they want to be their own #1 fans, hence Brad Pitt and Angelie Jolie, amongst tons of others.

Still, the World of Love can be a world of pain and unbalance, unrequited or unreturned love for the masses, and even for the "Alpha," who may get tired of the ones they are with, and be addicted to new adoration from others. In any event, the Karma runs deep for those with Saturn in Libra (Karma in Relationships), Saturn in Scorpio (Karma with Sex and intimacy), Saturn in Cancer, (My Dad, Karma with feelings), and Saturn in Leo (Karma with family and romance). That amount of Saturn in those signs covers about 35% of all the people you would meet, so as we see the Karma of love is quite the circus, and even if people are married, together, or have been together all their lives, it doesn't mean that there is mutual love, or that they are even happy.

This is a time in history, unlike any other, in that with all the free sex of the 60's, and women's liberation, now we have more single people in their 40's, 50's, and 60's per capita, then anytime in the history of the World. That is sad to me, because once we were a planet that had focus on family, children and love; now, we are a planet of nomads wondering in the wilderness trying to find love.

At this time, during the holidays, the karma of love, romance, marriage, and commitment strike me, as I am one of those nomads who is unmarried, and frankly this can be quite a lonely time of year, especially if when you see your family it is bad enough you have no mate or spouse, that you have to see your family also fight with each other.

It is my dream that one day the human race learn how to love and give priority to those that love them without turning the other cheek, running off to the gym, the tv set, the computer, the boys, the girls, the kids, the cats, Mom, Dad, or work; and reach out to each other with authenticity, love, affection, and true compassion.

That is why it is a blessing if you are alone to be spiritual, to pray and to hold the spirit of God close to your heart so you can feel God's love to nurture you and nourish you, and so that you don't have to be in a one sided friendship or relationship. You can be at peace unto yourself with God's Love.

Astrology Explained: "It's Monday and I'm having a Saturn Return!" KARMA AND SATURN

Astrology Explained:
The Meaning Of Saturn in the Birth Chart..and the Law of Karma By Farley Malorrus

It's Monday and Saturn is at 25 Leo.....When I was born, Saturn was at 25 Leo....In your late 20's, in your late 50's and in your late 80's a phenomena occurs in Astrology we call a Saturn Return. It is when Saturn travels all around the 12 signs of the Zodiac and returns to the place it was when you were born. Saturn is the Lord of karma, obsession, what we desire most, and our biggest craving apart from God. My Saturn is in Leo in the 11th house. Now to understand my karma, biggest craving, and obsession we want to look at what Saturn means in the sign of LEO and in the 11th house. By the way, babies being born at this time are being born with MY KARMA, because we share the same Saturn.

Leo is family, father, creativity, organization, happiness, and strength. The 11th house is goals, friends, best friends, humanity, and sudden changes. All of these things had been vital to my life and something I had obsessed about until my priority in life became my relationship to God.

The last time I had a Saturn Return in my late 20's, my best friend in the World, Michael Alcana, died from injuries incurred when he flipped his Ford Maverick about 10 times in the rain on the freeway going up to UCSB. It was also at this time that my father had totally rejected me for someone else, a stranger, to run his business, and I felt I did not exist to him or in his life. I have always had karma with friends and father; and I can't count the times I have counted on someone being a best friend (including Dad) and they have either betrayed me, rejected me, dumped me for no reason, moved on with their life for no reason, or like Michael, just died. Friendship has been and always will be vital to my life, but at the same time it is my karma. My father (The Leo Part) is someone I have wanted to be best friends with my whole life (He is 91), and he has always chosen others to be ahead of me on his priority list. Whether it has been my brothers in law, or those that have chosen to run his company, or even someone who just knows him, 'from the business,' he has never given me the priority that I would cherish from him. He has been kind and generous to me, but not the close friend I would desire. At this time, he has chosen a young man in his 50's to be his 'cup of tea,' and confidant, once again over me. So, my whole life has been littered with this friendship/father karma. You know what else bites me? It has always been so important that I be close friends with my ex wife (while married), and/or any girlfriends that I have had, and it is not the fact that they betray the relationship as much as they betray my friendship with them, that bites me! (Ouch!)

Now, you may understand better why I chose Astrology and understanding concepts of Karma as my life career. I have learned that my priority is and always will be God. There is a very important reason for that, as in my research into Karma, as many of you know, "Karma is any thing your desire other than God." "Karma puts a weight on your soul that keeps your soul from going into the light, keeps you reincarnating,  and prevents your soul from going into the light when you die." The Love of God and your relationship to God bears no weight. "Karma is anything material or Earthly that is not of God. The soul is weightless when it enters this realm and it collects desires, obessions, and needs the whole life putting weight on the soul. This is the karma that keeps us alive so long, and prevents us from going into the light at death. The only way to go into the light at death is to release all your desires and obsessions, and embrace your love of God with all your heart. (In the Christian faith this would be accepting Jesus Christ as the Son of God)

I recently was rejected on Thanksgiving by a life long friend (36 years) whom I spent Thanksgiving with for many years, and for no reason decided he wanted to be alone. (That's Saturn Return Part I) My best bud and pet HARPY the African Green Singing Finch had died a few weeks ago (Part II), and he was around me for nearly 16 years. My Dad has recently taken on this young man as confidant and driver for him, (something I had considered doing) and did not even have Thanksgiving Dinner with my Mom or I, as he had to eat with this man instead of us (Part III)....So...I could be distraught and upset over all of this, and feel the pain of loss, rejection, or abandonment, as many do during these times, but then there is God.

My faith in God is so strong, so powerful, so loving, so connected, so dedicated that it is a vital, intensely intimate part of my life. I pray every day, when I go to sleep, acknowledge God's presence (Jesus), ongoing, every second of my life as a witness to my life, best friend, and accomplice in all I think about or do. This is my saving grace in every context as without my faith, I am sure I would wallow in the pain and loss of not having these 'friends' hang around, or having the close relationship I have always wanted to have with my dad. Instead, I bask in the glow of God's love and don't allow the other to have any bearing or 'weight,' on my soul. This is what my life has become, a circle of bliss, love, and happiness, and therefore I can 'sail' through this Saturn Cycle, unlike when I was in my 20's when Michael Alcana died, that affected me for 5 years later in grief.

I know there is more to come, as people tend to die during this Saturn cycle, as my Saturn is in stress to a Scorpio Moon in my chart and therefore the death element comes in to picture, but I am strong, and my relationship with God once again is the way I overcome my karma, and deal with such things.

One of my closest friends in the World, Martha, lost her dog "Cali," today and I felt the pain. To me, losing a pet is like losing a child, and I related to the fact that Cali died from a tick related lyme type disease that took her in 24 hours, but I know she is released from the pain and with God in Heaven, so that she is happy. I am sorry for the loss of our friend Cali, but once again I revert back to my deep faith and connection to the almighty as the driving force in my life and by far the priority I must embrace over all things Earthly and all people. The goal is to be Bodhisattva, or "Karma free;" to be free of all attachments material or Earthly and to have one priority of the Spirit, that which is God.

One final comment as love, relationships, marriage, sex, and children all have a weight on our soul as we all know, sometimes the heaviest of burdens. Even though this love, connection, relationship and passion seem so important to us, as it is Earthly, it is all part of the Karmic circle we must overcome to go into the light. As important all of that is to all of us, or most of us, it is most important to be able to 'let it all go,' at death or when dying, and embrace that which is certainly eternal, God's Love.

Enjoy the week and may God's blessings shine upon you.
