Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

RisaNewSSimultaneous (Jewish, Catholic, Esoteric astrological) religious and spiritual festivals occur this weekend, creating within humanity coordinated, synchronized and harmonized prayers to God. Concurrent religious festivals form the foundation of the Aquarian new world religion. We are at the end of Holy Week, leading to Easter Sunday’s Resurrection Festival.

Holy Thursday night is the Last Supper followed by our Lord’s (Pisces World Teacher) betrayal by Judas (his role to play) for 30 pieces of silver.



 

Good Friday is the Crucifixion and Death (Initiations) of Christ Jesus (our Initiations also). Friday at sunset, Passover begins (until April 14), commemorating the Exodus, Israelites release from slavery (esoterically Taurus Age end, Aries Age begins).

Good Friday is also the full moon, solar festival of Aries (all things new). The Light of Aries is the Light of Life Itself summoning the Spirit of Restoration to “Restore the Plan on Earth.” The New Group of World Servers (NGWS), reciting the Great Invocation, calls humanity to identify as World Disciple, World Server and World Savior with an invitation to join the NGWS to help “Restore the Plan on Earth.” This is humanity’s “Call to Resurrection.”

We bid farewell to “keen-edged beacon,” beloved and fierce poet, Adrienne Rich (8th house Sun, Mercury in Gemini, illumined writer always “Diving Into the Wreck”), “called back” last Tuesday. Her 1976 book “Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution,” identified and radicalized my life as a woman and mother. Ohm Mani Padme Hum.  (More introduction at nightlightnews.com.)

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of April 5, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You are developing a greater awareness of self as you continue to experience personal, political, inner/outer change. New ideas enter your mind coloring your experiences. A sense of a fire burns within, like a heart giving warmth to the world. You feel bright and brilliant. You are. You are also responsible for providing this fire and ideas to the world. Are you ready?


taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
Most likely you’re not going too many places these days. It’s possible your vehicle(s) is/are experiencing breakdowns or flat tires so you can’t go too far. A state of contemplativeness has befallen your life and all you can accomplish is gardening, slow walks, reflection and hiding from events, phones and people. You’re a leader whether this is acknowledged or not. Are you ready?


geminiGemini May 22–June 20
Deeper revelations of divinity are occurring, possibly in sleep, but definitely while serving the world. Here are mantrams and intentions we recite each morning in meditation (which you’re welcome to join). “Assume a new and fresh attitude of community and hold it during the hours of service which lie ahead each day. Guard with care all thoughts and speech. Call for those you will work with to help build the new culture and civilization.” There’s more. Are you ready?


cancerCancer June 21–July 20
Slowly you are building up a reputation and gaining achievements as you oh-so-carefully enter the world. So often you’re hidden under a protective shell. We know this is for safety and shelter. Often you’re working toward goals we don’t see or understand - not until they’re offered as nurturance and in service to others. You’re ambitious but no one can tell. You’re a leader. And you hide this, too. Are you ready to lead others?


leoLeo July 21–August 22
Restlessness often overtakes you in the winter and summer. You need a change of environment, of scenery, along with perhaps a change in friendships. You also need to communicate what you’ve learned to those who want to learn, those with curiosity and the ability to understand more expansive heartfelt ideas. In our meditations each morning we thank our great teachers past, present and those to come. You are a great teacher.
 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
You are focused on the horizon with great, goal-oriented ideas as high as the mountaintop under which the May full moon festival takes place. You are proud of what you know. When using your knowledge with humility and Right Attitude, others learn from you. In turn you must want to learn, too. Your information must be turned into true knowledge, your love into wisdom. Are you ready?


libraLibra September 23–October 22
There’s a sense you must enter deeper in life, including dying and regenerating like a phoenix and this is focused within your most intimate relationships. Yours is the Path of the Warrior, going into battle with desires and aspiration, seeking the virtuous way, increasing the demand for change, compelling others to change also. For rebirth to occur, something from the past must be relinquished. It’s a hurt you hold. It can be let go now.


scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
As we grow older our true self emerges. I remember my art teacher, Detta Lange, at Immaculate Heart College Art Department in Hollywood, telling me, a young art student, “As we age we become more of our rising sign.” I didn’t understand her. But I do now. The inner essence of our rising sign is our Soul and as we grow in age and experience, our Soul comes forth to direct our personality. This becomes our foundation. Are you ready?


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
You’re proud of your family, your heritage, religion, education. These constitute your very own private life. You are careful with your privacy, allowing no one to enter who is not trusted. There are others in your life who wonder if you are trustworthy. Trust is something based on truth and understanding and knowing you will work for the good of the whole. Are you ready to be identified as trustworthy?


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
Be very careful with communication and thoughts. It’s possible communication can be difficult and misunderstandings occur— Neptune in Pisces in your house of communication. Begin each day with the intention to think and speak only with a loving heart. This cultivates a joy that brings strength and courage and a great creative ability. For gardening follow the biodynamic planting guide. A greenhouse is in your future. Are you ready?
 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
You feel restless, perhap, and more than ready to make changes in your home. You sense an expansion of self as independent. This is how you must move about in your world. It’s important to be flexible and to have mental agility, allowing you to communicate clearly to everyone who comes your way. New values, a shift in resources and a deep need to nest appears. Are you ready?


piscesPisces February 19–March 20
As a child it was difficult to build or even understand solid secure foundations. As an adult a secure foundation is most necessary. However, it’s difficult now to build it. Begin by identifying what you value and what you are proud of about yourself. You have become that solid and secure foundation you have always sought. Call forth daily what you need in terms of wealth, possessions, a home and home security. Make ready for them.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
