The Heavenly Holy Grail
The Heavenly Holy Grail is associated with the constellation Virgo and each year during the sign of Aries, March 20-April 20, the "Easter" Full Moon travels through the heavens with Spica, the brightest star of Virgo the Virgin.
In 2013 the exact time of the Full Moon occurs on Wednesday, March 27 at 2:27am PDT (09:27 UT). The exact Full Moon lies west of Spica and Saturn, near the dim star Porrima as shown in the map below.

Porrima, Spica, Saturn and the Moon
In 2013 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.
Virgo's brightest star, Spica, symbolizes the sacred womb of the Virgin, nourishing the seed of our innate divinity and spiritual awareness. With Saturn's placement in the area of Virgo's legs and womb, it's as if this celestial Virgin is giving birth to Saturn! Review map above.
Saturn is retrograde now. It began its easterly, backward motion February 18, 2013 and is stationary direct July 7/8, 2013. This means the planet remains in the vicinity of Virgo's legs and womb for several months. The relationship of this planet and star is prompting us to give birth to beliefs and forms that can embody, exteriorize the unfolding Christ consciousness.
Though Saturn's retrograde motion fosters a lengthy relationship with Spica, this motion technically occurs in the sidereal constellation of Libra. See Sidereal Heavens for Virgo's constellation border, which ends a little east of Spica. Saturn in Libra brings about right judgment, what is fair in any given situation.
The Moon located in the Virgin's constellation affirms and fosters a deep growing awareness of the importance of world service on Earth.
Saturn, Virgo with its stars Porrima and Spica, and Easter's Full Moon are arousing our inner divine nature. We are being impressed to give birth to a new world, one that is born of justice and fairness, and utilizes soul force for the good of all. We are being urged to use our intuition and take action to create structures within and without that ultimately giving rise to the HU-man*, the Christed ONE, Homo Luminous.
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.
Bootes ~ Arcturus
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.
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

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.
It is interesting to note that the constellation of the World Savior, Pisces, lies beneath the Square of Pegasus. 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, the darkness of matter ends forever; 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 with 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 Moons close proximity to Spica, has the potential to stimulate and consecrate the seed of divinity within each and every one of us. In 2013 the Easter Full Moon Festival, celebrated March 27, 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 2013 Mars, Uranus and Venus add potency to the emanations of Pisces. Review map above.
Mars knows about death, the sacrifice of Light descending into matter, the battle between the Soul and personality. Mars in Pisces, at its highest manifestation, has the potential to direct divine will/purpose into any situation, thus transforming lower energies. The freedom urge of telescopic Uranus shakes us loose from old constricting forms moving us toward inclusive group consciousness.
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. With Venus in Pisces wise love conquers all opposition and difference.
These 3 planets and the Sun are aligned with Algenib in the constellation Pegasus. Review map above.
In addition, in 2013 these 3 planets and the Sun, by way of their placement from 3/22 to 4/17, are interacting with each other in a concentrated and intense fashion while in Pisces, the constellation of the World Savior.
The energies of these transits emanating from the constellation of the World Savior on the rays of the Sun are evolutionary, revolutionary, explosive, surprising and liberating. Call upon Pisces, Alegnib and Pegasus as humanity's transfiguration takes place with these transits. Transform evil into good. Ride the wings of the soul toward the Light and through the gates of Paradise. 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! Christ in You the Hope of Glory! Look Up as Easter's Full Moon travels through the heavens in the constellation Virgo the Virgin, the heavenly Holy Grail, the celestial Chalice. Be a sacred vessel that receives the radiant Life and become 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.
