Porrima, Spica and the Moon

In 2018 the exact Full Moon lies near the dim star, Porrima, named after the goddess of childbirth and prophecy. Porrima portends new beginnings and the use of our guiding intuition during times of change, transformation and rebirth.

Porrima opens our ability to have foresight to see future probabilities ... This prophetic ability is with specific purpose, not only for communication, but action. ... The purpose of such future-seeing is so that we can prepare and create NOW what is needed "to meet" the future events to come. Nick Fiorenza

The exact Full Moon lies west of Spica, Virgo's brightest star. See the Full Moon map above. Spica symbolizes the sacred womb of the Virgin, nourishing the seed of our innate divinity and spiritual awareness until the Christed ONE can be born on Earth. Learn more in the sections below: "Heavenly Holy Grail" and "Bootes ~ Arcturus".

Whenever any phase of the Moon is located in the Virgin's constellation, it affirms and fosters a deep growing awareness of the importance of world service on Earth.

Virgo with its stars Porrima and Spica, and Easter's Full Moon are arousing and awakening our inner divine nature, our unfolding Christ consciousness. These celestial bodies are impressing us to nourish the seed of our innate divinity and spiritual awareness, in order to be reborn anew. We are being urged to use our intuition and take action to change the order of our lives, so that we may ultimately give rise to the HU-man *, the Christed ONE, Homo Luminous and in turn, midwife a sacred planet.


Virgo the Virgin ~ The Heavenly Holy Grail

Esoterically, the emanations of Virgo, the Virgin nurture and shield the hidden divinity of each one of us until the gestation period is complete and spiritual birth can occur. She is the celestial Chalice for the Divine Host.

Virgo itself is a cup-shaped constellation [Image], ... the cup of communion ... in its highest meaning the Holy Grail. Bailey's Labours of Hercules

In the Zodiac in the Temple of Denderah, in Egypt ... she [Virgo the Virgin] is likewise represented with a branch in her hand ... Her name is called Aspolia, which means ears of corn, or the seed, which shows that though the woman is seen, it is her Seed who is the great subject of the prophecy. E. W. Bullinger 1893: The Witness of the Stars


Bootes ~ Arcturus

The third constellation holding promise of the future is Bootes, "the one who is coming", the saviour in Pisces who frees humanity from subservience to the form. Bailey's Labours of Hercules

The brightest star in the constellation Bootes is a golden star located above (north of) Spica in the night sky. See the Full Moon map above. This luminary is Arcturus, the herder of the Divine Will emanating from the 7 stars of the Big Dipper in the constellation, Ursa Major. Arcturus is the bridge between these 7 stars and Virgo the Virgin. Arcturus, like an Avatar filled with Divine Will, stimulates great evolutionary changes to all in its path. Virgo, in its path (see map above), is the Holy Grail that receives the Will of God.

Note: In locating Arcturus and Spica, skywatchers know to arc from the handle of the Big dipper to golden Arcturus and then spike down to blue-white sparkling Spica in the south. Image

Spica representing the sacred womb of Virgo the Virgin, accepts and nourishes the seed of Arcturus, until the gestation period is complete and spiritual birth can occur within the human form.

It's as if Arcturus, symbolizing the soul, steps down and transmits the Will of God into the form (Virgo) and its individual personality. The personality becomes the receiver and container of this Divine Life. This eventually results in the birth of the Christ consciousness on Earth and the evolution of matter.

Ponder on this: Spica is flying away from us at a speed of 2,000 miles per hour, while Arcturus is racing toward us at the incredible speed of 12,000 miles per hour. Arcturus appears to move toward Virgo about one-half degree in 900 years. Image


The Springtime Big Dipper ~ The 7 Rishis

* Printable Image *

The seven stars of the Big Dipper are esoterically known as the Seven Rishis and correspond to the head centers in the body of a Great Being. Each of these stars transmits a ray of energy into our solar system. These seven rays are the givers of life to all on this earth. In the springtime during the three major planetary festivals, the Big Dipper can be seen overhead in the early evening pouring out its heavenly contents upon an awakening earth.

Note: Alcor, a small star in the bend of the Dipper's handle, difficult to see by many with the unaided eye, is not considered a Rishi.


The Holy Grail ~ The World Savior

Each year during the time of Aries, opposite the "Easter" Full Moon in the Holy Grail, we find the Sun in the constellation Pisces, a constellation that is associated with the World Savior. The star map below reveals this view of the Sun at the exact time of the Full Moon.

This image reflects the position of the Sun at the exact time of the Full Moon. The Sun and planets shown above are located in the same constellation for all parts of the world, however in differing time zones, they may be unseen below the horizon, or in a different location above the horizon. For those living in San Francisco, these celestial bodies lie unseen below the northeastern horizon.

Note: The Sun associated with the Easter Festival lies in the constellation of the World Savior, Pisces.

It is interesting to note that the constellation of the World Savior, Pisces, lies beneath the Square of Pegasus. See map above. The ancient Babylonians called this square "The Doorway to Paradise." Today astronomers travel through this doorway or "window" to the edge of our Milky Way Galaxy and go beyond to other galaxies! As the Light of the World, the World Savior frees humanity from subservience to the form, and the darkness of matter ends forever. Then the Doorway to Paradise opens and new dimensions of reality are experienced.


It Is Written in the Heavens!

Virgo the Virgin's Holy Grail and Easter's Full Moon nourish the Divine consciousness in form. Pisces the World Savior and the Sun opposite Easter's Full Moon free the Spirit from the limitations of form. This dual relationship is an illustration that the path leading to light is trodden through the blending of the pairs of opposites.

Each year the Holy Grail, with the Full Moon’s close proximity to Spica, has the potential to stimulate and consecrate the seed of divinity within each and every one of us. In 2018 the Easter Full Moon Festival, celebrated March 31, gives humanity an opportunity for divine awakening.

Each year the message of the World Savior is emphasized, enlivened and carried throughout the solar system by the rays and power of the Sun. In 2018 Mercury, Uranus and Venus add potency to the emanations of Pisces. Review map above.

Mercury illumines the higher mind, awakening intuition and creating divine messengers.

When in the sign of the Fish [Pisces], Mercury relates mind and love. The Mind is always the vehicle for the expression of the Love/Wisdom which is the essence of Life yet, after a certain stage of evolution is reached there is no longer a need for the mind to act as a mediator between the Soul and the personality. The Rainbow Bridge/ Antahkarana has been reached, and the Soul and the personality are indeed one. Then Mercury and the Sun unite, and the Son returns to the Father ... The Presence has been incarnated as the personality. ~It is finished~ ... Mercury in Pisces

As seen in the map above Mercury messenger of the gods is communing with our Sun god during this Easter season. Listen. What Easter message does Mercury have for you? Note: Mercury begins the 2nd half of its retrograde (Mar.22 - Apr.15) on April 1, Easter Sunday, under the Square of Pegasus. Listen. Pay attention to emerging new ideas during this time. They may open the Doorway to  Paradise and new dimensions of reality!

The freedom urge of telescopic Uranus shakes us loose from old constricting forms moving us toward inclusive group consciousness.

The rebellion of Uranus in Pisces is the rejection of reality, a stripping away of illusions, and a subsequent shift into new visions that encompass a growing sense of wholeness that often comes through weariness or disillusion with the current state of things. Neil Giles / Uranus in Pisces

With Venus in Pisces wise love conquers all opposition and difference. Venus helps one begin to understand the causes and conditions of harmony and conflict, thereby lovingly and wisely linking the lower mind to the higher mind.

Mercury, Uranus and Venus uniquely augment the message of the World Savior emanating from the constellation of Pisces. This message is enlivened and carried throughout the solar system by the rays and power of the Sun. It is illuminating, evolutionary, revolutionary, surprising, liberating, loving and understanding of our heart’s true desire.

Pisces and Pegasus are helping humanity's transfiguration take place. With their assistance we can focus our Life Force and open the Doorway to Paradise, to new dimensions of reality. Call upon these celestial energies for guidance and empowerment. The Light returns through you, a self-consecrated human being, who pursues the soul's purpose and is a manifestation of the Divine on Earth.

This truly is a time of rising. It is written in the heavens! Pisces the World Savior, Mercury, Uranus and Venus by day, the Full Moon and Virgo the Virgin's Holy Grail by night are working together to bring about Christ in You the Hope of Glory!

Look Up! See Easter's Full Moon travel through the heavens in the constellation Virgo the Virgin, the heavenly Holy Grail, the celestial Chalice. Become a sacred vessel that receives the radiant Life and be a Light of the World! Join with others around the globe who are creating a grid of Light, the Holy Grail on Earth. Together become the Risen ONE giving birth to a sacred planet. We are the Chalice for the Divine Host on Earth.
