The Wesak (Water) Buddha Full Moon Ceremony, Sun in Taurus

The Wesak (Water) Buddha Full Moon Ceremony, Sun in Taurus

Happy Mother’s Day, Sunday, to all mothers in our world. Wednesday is the full moon Wesak Festival. Each year the Lord of the World (Ancient of Days from Venus), our God, sends a blessing to his people on Earth through His intermediaries – the Buddha (who adds Wisdom) and Christ (who adds Love). This occurs at the May full moon in a protected valley in the Himalayas. Pilgrims from all over the world and the New Group of World Servers participate. The festival’s purpose is enlightenment; dispelling glamour, ignorance, confusions and illusions hindering humanity from the Path of Return. Many participate through intention, dreams and visualization. Let’s join them.

Something Essential Disappears

Something Essential Disappears

Lunar and solar eclipses follow one another. Lunar eclipses occur at full moons, and solar eclipses at new moons. Two weeks ago at the full moon we had the blood red moon—a total lunar eclipse (the next one is Oct. 8). On Monday night, April 28 (new moon), as the Sun, Moon and Earth align, a solar eclipse (Sun obscured) occurs. Eclipses signify something irrevocably is changed in our world. The Sun is our essential life force. Monday’s new moon, 9 degrees Taurus, is also an annular solar eclipse when the Moon moves centrally in front of the Sun, yet does not cover the Sun completely. The Sun's outer edges, still visible, form a “ring of fire” around the Moon.

Aries—The Will to Be

Aries—The Will to Be

Last week, Sun entering Aries, the new spiritual year began. Archangel Raphael assumed protection of the Earth. Raphael is the Archangel of Healing. During Aries, Raphael and the Forces of Restoration work together streaming new light and life into the Earth. They come in on the wings of the Spirit of Resurrection.

Aries is the Initiating Will-to-Be, a continuous pulse of the Life Force. Aries’ fiery aethers move through the cosmos seeking where to anchor in form and matter. Mars, presently retrograde, is the personality-ruler of Aries. Mars presents humanity with Nine Tests of the personality. With Mars retrograde our experience of Spring may be subdued, intent as we are on inner tests.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
