The Heavenly Holy Grail
The Heavenly Holy Grail is associated with the constellation Virgo and each year during the sign of Aries, normally from March 20-April 20, the "Easter" Full Moon travels through the heavens with Spica, the brightest star of Virgo the Virgin.
In 2016 the exact Full Moon occurs Wednesday March 23 at 5:01am PDT (12:01 UT). The exact Full Moon lies west of Spica, as shown in the map below. This Full Moon is a penumbral lunar eclipse event.
Note: After sunrise, as the hours of Wednesday unfold, the Moon travels easterly toward Spica. By moonrise Wednesday evening March 23, around 8:00pm, the Moon is seen in the east. An hour later, around 9:00pm, Spica rises in the east. The Moon continues moving easterly toward Spica during the evening, setting in the west around 7:48am March 24. By the evening of March 24 the Moon nestles near Spica and moves easterly away from the star. Map/Text ~ Rise/Set Times ~ Major Bodies
BTW: The brilliant light seen west of the Moon during this time is the planet Jupiter in the constellation Leo the Lion. Jupiter/Leo Map

Spica and the Eclipsed Moon
In 2016 the exact Full Moon lies west of Spica, Virgo's brightest star. Spica symbolizes the sacred womb of the Virgin, nourishing the seed of our innate divinity and spiritual awareness.
An eclipsed Moon is a supercharged Full Moon. It is a time of endings, culmination points and major changes. It occurs when the shadow of the Earth blocks moonlight. *
This is the second of two eclipses during the Easter lunar cycle, March 8-April 7. The first a Supermoon total solar eclipse, occurred at the New Moon March 8 or 9, depending on your time zone.
The darkness of these two eclipses demands we be receptive to the infinite unknown. As we incorporate new streams of eclipse energies and information into our being, the order of our lives changes. We must stretch to expand our consciousness. The impact of one eclipse may be felt as much as 3 months in advance to as little as 2 days before and 3 days after. Subtle reverberations may linger as long as 3 years afterwards. You may feel like you are walking across a bridge to a brand new place, with no turning back from where you started. How To Deal With Eclipses
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.
Easter's Full Moon eclipse in Virgo the Virgin is arousing and awakening our inner divine nature, our unfolding Christ consciousness. It is urging us to nourish the seed of our innate divinity and spiritual awareness. The combined energies of the Full Moon, the eclipse and the constellation Virgo are changing the order of our lives, so that we may ultimately give 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 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 Moons close proximity to Spica, has the potential to stimulate and consecrate the seed of divinity within each and every one of us. In 2016 the Easter Full Moon Festival, celebrated March 23, 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 2016 Uranus and Mercury add potency to the emanations of Pisces, and Mercury, in addition, is in communion with Sun. Review map above.
The freedom urge of telescopic Uranus shakes us loose from old constricting forms moving us toward inclusive group consciousness.
Mercury illumines the higher mind, awakening intuition and creating divine messengers.
Mercury messenger of the gods is communing with our Sun god. Listen. What Easter message does Mercury have for you?
In addition, Mercury and the Sun are vertically aligned with Algenib and Alpheratz in the constellation Pegasus, while Uranus is diagonally aligned with Algenib and Scheat. Review map above.
The message of the World Savior, emanating from the constellation of Pisces, is uniquely augmented by Uranus and Mercury. It is enlivened and carried throughout the solar system by the rays and power of the Sun. The message is evolutionary, revolutionary, surprising, liberating and illuminating.
Pisces, Alegnib, Alpheratz, Scheat and Pegasus are helping humanity's transfiguration take place. With their assistance we can focus our Life Force, transform evil into good and ride the wings of the soul toward the Light and through the gates of Paradise. 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, Uranus and Mercury by day, the penumbral lunar eclipse, 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.
