Lighted Way The entire zodiac can be approached and understood
from the angle of light ~ the inner light, soul light ~ and its
unfolding, increasing radiance is the manifestation of our divine
nature. (5) Study of the
12 different lights for each of the constellations of the zodiac
reveals the symbolic story of the growth of the light body within
the Soul of Humanity (the Macrocosm) and within each of us (the
Microcosm), and will finally make clear the very purpose of God.
Zodiacal Deity Symbolized
by the Balance, Libra represents the full blossoming of material
is the sign of balancing the opposites and of equilibrium, through which
we learn through crises to find the right alignment. Objectivity and subjectivity
are the two scales of the one balance; when we identify with a part, we
lose sight of the whole. The
effect of this balance is harmony, developing our powers of discrimination,
and bringing into equilibrium the two-sided forces of duality.
Libran Way On the Cardinal Cross, Libra brings
order, rhythm, and eventually equilibrium. Libra governs the Way
to the Middle, the middle path. The energy
of Libra helps us move from the weighing of opposites, judgment, to the
place of understanding, the point of balance. In seeking and finding point
of balance, the Divine Life is further revealed and from this place all
things can be seen in a new light.
Labor of Hercules The seventh great test of Hercules in Libra,
in which Hercules is charged with caputring the Erymanthian
about learning balance and sound judgment. "We are told that
Hercules seizes the hind legs of the boar, and compels the beast
to walk down the mountainside on its front legs, and that this spectacle
excites the laughter of all who witness it. In this incident we observe
the Libran's ability to find unusual solutions, and to perceive the
value of the incongruous." (6)
of Freedom The Principle of Freedom and the Principle
of Liberation are related to Libra, for we are told, "the
secret of liberation lies in the balancing of the forces and the
of the pairs of opposites." (7) Libra
pertains to freedom:
freedom from the personality,
freedom from blindness, or freedom from all the seven planes of
our planetary existence ~ the planes which are sometimes referred
to as the arenas of human and superhuman evolution.
Night Sky The New Moon is supercharged and its heavenly
position is quite an “impressive” balancing act that

the inner planes. Whether or not you choose to be "alone" on
the physical plane, know you are uniting with many others who also
are attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and

preceding the full moon. These are to be dedicated to spiritual reflection
and detachment from everyday concerns, as
each prepares to become a vessel for the energies of light and love

dedication and service, and seek to assume that attitude of receptivity
to that which our soul will impart which will make us of spiritual

peace and silence during which we attempt to contact and consciously
hold the energies for the rest of humanity. We will not formulate for
ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible
effects. While one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is
full, it's important to find some quiet time to reflect alone or use
this opportunity to meditate with others of like mind and focus.
succeeding days are called the "days of distribution." We now turn
the attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to
pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist
these spiritual energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to
where there is greatest need.

are inspired to participate in this global meditation and / or the
alignment during the Libra cycle, we would be pleased to hear your
meditation impressions and share them here.
was in Lake Tahoe with my family on vacation for the full moon
in Libra. I just slipped out on the deck for a brief meditation.
The moon was bright and silvery as it danced high amongst the
trees. Once I was centered, I opened to the energy.The impression
came quickly and it surprised me a bit. This is what I heard
and saw, "the
energy from on high must be brought down fully into the physical
plane and manifested. Connect with Spirit, operate from the plane
of Soul. See, know, and find the course of wise action that will
bring about the greater good for all. Change will occur, healings
and miracles will result from this effort. As we look outward across
our home, the earth, we must bring balance to all that is before
us. We must seek and then know what required of us. This is our work,
this is our service. We are the Human Family!"
days later I was speaking with a friend about what I had experienced.
She too, in meditation during the full moon, had sensed a similar
vision, of Humanity's need to bring the energy fully down into
the form. She even got a meditation: where we would bring the Soul
light down and into each chakra. As the energy center filled she
would say Namaste to each chakra. Then she envisioned bringing
this Holy light down and in to the earth as a gift or blessing.
She saw the great Global Grid growing to include the trees, the
plant kingdom and the animal kingdom as well. She saw healings
and miracles occurring.
second friend called the next night and I began to share the
vision with her. She too felt the energy. She spoke of bringing
Spirit fully into matter. She too saw the great Global Grid alive
with spiritual force and that we are stepping it down, bringing
it here. She too saw an enlivening of the physical plane where
there is work to be done. She saw us bringing the energy down
and into the earth. She then revealed a most beautiful vision
she saw us 're-anointing' the earth.
all the discussion about energy, miracles, healings and a wise
course of action that requires us to be aware of working here and
now on earth, making a difference. My heart filled with joy at
the announcement at that this year's Nobel Peace Prize would go
to Muhammad Yunus, Bangladesh's 'Banker to the poor'. This little
quiet little man with a fine mind and a huge heart saw a great
need in his poor country, where poverty begat poverty, famines
killed thousands on a regular basis. He left the world of teaching
economics. with a vision to lift people out of the vicious cycle
of poverty. He created a system called "micocredit".
It allows poor people, who cannot hope to qualify for a loan to
borrow as little as $20 without collateral. Over 92 million people,
most of them women, around the globe have taken out small loans
and worked their way out of poverty.
Bangladesh one of the world's
poorest countries suffered a devastating drought and famine, over
one million people died. You might remember George Harrison in
response created the 'Concert for Bangladesh' the first global
musical event to raise funds. Muhammad Yunus was trying to help
starving villagers when he met a 21 year old woman named Sufia,
who was burdened by a tiny but crushing debt.
Begum, who had to
borrow money to buy the bamboo to make stools she sold for a living
received .25 cents per day form money lenders after giving them
the stools she was left with .02 cents per day to live on.
was in touch with the great need around and had a vision to help
break the grinding cycle of debt and poverty. He loaned $27.00
to Bugum and more than 40 of her neighbors in the village of Joba.
He allowed them to pay him back over the course of the coming year
as their business grew and the work started to produce a profit.
tried to persuade a local banker to loan more money to the villagers
But the banker r refused insisting that they did not qualify for
credit. So Yunus started his own bank to help the poorest of the
poor lift themselves up.
Thirty years later Yunus' Grameen Bank
has more that 6 million borrowers. The bank has 2226 branches and
provides services to 71,371 villages across Bangladesh. The bank
has given out $5.7 billion in loans and has a repayment rate of
more that 98%.
This is the message, we can make a difference, we
can change the world. So that every one of us, every single individual
on earth has both the potential and the right to lead a decent
life, to have their basic needs met - food, shelter, clothing and
Imagine the Human Family with out poverty, and free of
the worry, pain and humility it brings. Imagine those vital human
hearts and minds freed to love and work for even greater good.
Let the highest energy fill all my chakras and may all my actions,
whether of body, speech or mind, be in harmony with it.
May all my
interactions with other beings come from this place and inspire
the same in them.
