The Task of Gemini—Revealing Duality

The Task of Gemini—Revealing Duality

The days, weeks and months of 2013 have slipped by. Time has accelerated. We’re moving into a new world where time and space are experienced differently. They’re collapsed. The particle has become the wave. And so, here we are in Gemini, the sign that reveals the concept of duality.

Uniting All That Has Been Separated

Uniting All That Has Been Separated

The New Group of World Servers has been holding in safeguarding the Wesak blessing (the Will-to-Good for humanity) since the last full moon in April (Wesak). At Friday’s full moon lunar eclipse (an outer reality disappears), the Gemini Festival of Humanity & Goodwill (and World Invocation Day), this blessing will be dispersed to humanity for the purpose of creating Goodwill & Right Relations throughout the world. It’s a vital and important solar festival, working with the Forces of Reconstruction who appear in times of need to help humanity “restore the Ancient Mysteries and the original Plan on Earth,” hidden and obscured by the Forces of Materialism.

So Sleep (Pralaya) Does Not Overtake Us

So Sleep (Pralaya) Does Not Overtake Us

Sunday is Pentecost, a festival of the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence). Pentecost is the name given to the descent of the Holy Spirit as tongues of fire appearing above the heads of Christ’s (Piscean World Teacher) Disciples (students) in an upper room (plane of the Mind). Pentecost is not a simple bible story. It’s an actual experience for each individual as the Light of the Soul begins to direct the personality with spiritual gifts and virtues – wisdom, understanding (all ideas, all hearts), knowledge and Right Judgment (directing the intellect), wonder, fortitude/courage and respect/reverence (directing our willingness to serve).

Something Essential Disappears

Something Essential Disappears

Thursday is a Taurus new moon solar eclipse. Eclipses tell us something has come to an end, having reached its completion. The Sun (Solar Logos), hidden at solar eclipses, is the source of our essential life energy. When the Sun’s light (life essence) is hidden, something essential within our life becomes hidden too. And disappears. Eclipse effects last six months – three months prior and three months after. Venus enters Gemini Thursday. Venus unites, blends and harmonizes dualities. Venus takes conflicts and uplifts them into creative expressions.

Full Moon in the Wesak Valley

Full Moon in the Wesak Valley

Thursday is the Buddha Full Moon Taurus Wesak Festival. A great legend says that at the time of the full moon the great “Knowers of Divinity” gather from the many worlds to greet the Buddha who, once a year, at the exact time of the April full moon and for eight minutes afterward, streams into Earth a blessing from Shamballa, home of our God, Sanat Kumara, Regent from Venus. The blessing transmits Divine Will, Purpose, Love & Wisdom to humanity. Buddha (Wisdom) and Christ (Love) work in unison during this festival.

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.
