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 2017 the exact Full Moon occurs Wenesday April 10 at 11:08pm PDT (06:08 UT Tuesday, April 11). The exact Full Moon lies north of Spica, and the two form an eye-catching triangle with Jupiter as shown in the map below.

Before and after the exact Full Moon, in the early evening, look east to see the Moon approach and pass Jupiter and Spica. April 9-11 Map ~ Rise/Set Times ~ Major Bodies

Jupiter, Spica and the Moon

In 2017 the exact Full Moon lies north of Spica, Virgo's brightest star. 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 "Heavenly Holy Grail" and "Bootes ~ Arcturus" sections below.

With Jupiter and Easter's exact Full Moon near Spica, Soul-centered humanity has the opportunity to reveal its hidden Love-Wisdom, known as the Christ consciousness.

Jupiter in Virgo ... Jupiter is intimately linked with the Second Ray [Love-Wisdom], ... and thus related to the Soul or the Christ Principle. When in Virgo, the Christ descends into matter and lies hidden in the womb of the Mother. Thus on the level of the personality, an individual ... would tend to be very materialistic in nature and view their self-expansion purely in material terms. Yet the Soul-centred person with Jupiter in Virgo ... is incredibly sensitive to the living Soul Presence within every form of manifestation. The service such a person would tend to perform in life would be to ~quicken~ the identification of the Christ Consciousness in the world of forms. Certainly, the Second and Sixth Ray [*] qualities of Virgo would be a most suitable expression for Jupiter, especially where some devotional activity would be undertaken to reveal the hidden spiritual potential in any act of true service.

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.

Jupiter at opposition, April 7, 2017, remains in a close approach to the Earth during this Full Moon Easter Festival. This means it is bigger and brighter than usual, and visibly shining down upon us in the night sky, from sunset to sunrise.

Jupiter in close proximity to the Earth potently influences humanity. It is said that Jupiter transmits cosmic forces into our solar system. Jupiter bridges, fuses and blends, freeing us from duality. This giant planet expands our hearts and minds bringing out the best in all, producing wisdom and the externalization of the Divine Plan and our Divine Destiny in this solar system and beyond.

Jupiter’s primary purpose is one of fusion. It is instrumental in blending the lesser dualities of head and heart, mind and love, in order to produce Wisdom. It is primary focus for the energies of the Ray of Love/Wisdom, and acts as a vehicle through which the Ray of Consciousness may externalize the Divine Plan in our solar system. It therefore works to create the ultimate synthesis in order to exteriorize universal harmony and abundance. Esoteric Jupiter

Jupiter is also retrograde (Feb. 5/6-June 9) giving us the opportunity to re-examine what has meaning in our life. We are drawn within to reflect upon and re-evaluate our ethical and moral behavior in regards to creating the meaningful life we desire.

Easter's Full Moon and Jupiter in Virgo the Virgin are 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, Jupiter 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.

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.

The World Savior Is Enlivened!
Our Sun at the Exact Time of the "Easter" Full Moon

This image reflects the exact time of the Full Moon. For those living in San Francisco, these celestial bodies lie unseen below the nortwestern horizon. The Sun and planets are located in the same constellations for other parts of the world. These constellations, in differing time zones, lie in a different location above or below the 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. 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 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 2017 the Easter Full Moon Festival, celebrated April 10/11, 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 2017 Uranus and Venus add potency to the emanations of Pisces. Review map above.

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

Venus, in a close approach to the Earth during the 2017 Easter lunar cycle (Mar. 27/28 - Apr. 26), is potently influencing humanity.

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.

Venus is also retrograde (Mar. 4 -Apr. 15).

... this lunar cycle [Mar. 27/28 - Apr. 26], and the entirety of the Venus retrograde, provides opportunity to clear emotional and psychic webs, those clouding our hearts' true desires and the capacity to realize those desires. It provides opportunity to reassess and redefine our values, that which is truly important to us, and to create the receptive space within our hearts, the proper heart resonance, that allows the fulfillment we seek ... - Nick Fiorenza: Mar. 28, 2017 Lunar Cycle

The message of the World Savior, emanating from the constellation of Pisces, is uniquely augmented by Uranus and Venus. It is enlivened and carried throughout the solar system by the rays and power of the Sun. The message is evolutionary, revolutionary, surprising, liberating, loving and understanding of our hearts' true desires.

Pisces 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 Venus by day, Jupiter, 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.
