Look Up! ... Wesak + Saturn, Mars, Antares Triangle

Hello Sky Watchers,
April 7, 4:24am PDT marked the beginning of the 2016 Wesak lunar cycle that ends May 6, 12:29pm PDT. Forces of enlightenment from our highest spiritual planetary center, Shamballa, are released during this lunar cycle's Full Moon Festival, April 21/22. The Wesak Festival is the second of the three major planetary Full Moon Festivals that occur in the spring. The first, March 23 penumbral lunar eclipse, aligned with the Christ (Easter), the second, April 21/22, aligns with the Buddha (Wesak) and the third, May 21, with the spiritual and Divine nature of humanity (Goodwill). These Festivals form a spiritual high point of the year.

The Wesak Full Moon is exact at 10:24pm PDT Thursday, April 21 (05:24 UT Friday, April 22). Look east (left) of the Moon, and view Saturn and Mars in a striking triangle with Antares, the heart star of Scorpius the Scorpion. See map below.

The folks at SouledOut.org invite you to celebrate the current lunar month by participating in the Wesak Full Moon Festival Global Meditation, celebrating the Festival of Shamballa ~ the Festival of the Buddha.

Lunar Theme: Financial Affairs "This April 7, 2016 New Moon conjoins Uranus ... Although we have completed the Uranus-Pluto square [*], the square is still dispersing, within a 3° orb. This New Moon also aspects the Jupiter-Saturn square ... Thus this lunar cycle engages and emphasizes the energetics of both squares, initiating action to create revolutionary change ... and to relinquish antiquated structures ... Stars conjoining ... include Revati of Pisces ... This Uranus-Revati-lunar cycle, involving ... Uranus, Haumea [*] and Eris [*], brings attention to financial resources and financial affairs, both personally and globally, the control of money and to how it is used ...

4/7 New Moon Waxes to Wesak

Divine Flow

Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer
nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.

- D. T. Suzuki

Even as we continue to bask in the Light of the Aries Festival, having culminated with the full moon on March 23, the cycle of Life continues to progress while the moon now wanes towards its new phase.

And with the new moon on April 7, our dedicated focus shifts from the holy energies of the Aries Festival of the Risen One ~ Easter, following the dark of the moon to wax towards the next and most high and sacred of the 3 spring festivals ~ The Festival of Shamballa ~ Wesak.

Look Up! ... Easter's Eclipses and Holy Grail

May the light shine with us into those dark moments and
help resurrect us into the constant truth of who and what we are:
We are all the sons and daughters of Life, belonging here,
gifts to the universe from the Life that brought us.

- Allan Hardman

Hello Sky Gazers,
March 8, 5:54pm PST marked the Moon's new phase and its Supermoon total solar eclipse March 8-9 seen mainly in a long narrow path over the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The New Moon's solar eclipse sets in motion the 2016 Easter lunar cycle that ends April 7, 4:24am PST.

The lunar month continues with the March 19/20 Equinox Global Meditations, and peaks with a second eclipse, the Full Moon's Penumbral lunar eclipse on March 23, a subtle almost invisible partial eclipse. This Full Moon of the Easter lunar cycle is the first of the 3 major planetary Full Moon Festivals that occur in spring for the Northern Hemisphere and in autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. These Festivals form a spiritual high point of the year. Celebration of Light gives a brief introduction to these 3 Festivals and provides insight to the first, The Festival of the Risen One ~ Easter. As this Festival season unfolds more information will be shared about these 3 Full Moons.

The current Easter lunar cycle not only inaugurates the spiritual high season of the year, it also showers humanity with stimulating celestial energies.

Lunar Theme: Altruistic ~ Total Solar Eclipse "Our New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs amongst the flowing waters dispensed from the Urn of Aquarius ... over the Phoenix, a sign of renewal, of rising from the ashes ... The New Moon occurs in the midst of a stellium of planets ... with the exact Jupiter-Saturn square occurring on the [Full Moon] Lunar Eclipse, and as Saturn makes its retrograde station ... Critical times [geophysical and physiological] include the March 9 solar eclipse ... into and just after the First Quarter Moon of March 14-15 and the Full Moon eclipse through the Jupiter-Saturn square and Saturn station, March 22-25. Pay Attention!." Click the lunar theme link for more insights by Nick Fiorenza.

2016 Spring Equinox ~ Global Meditations

Without the darkness we could not
see the light of the candle flame.

- Carl Jung

The Spring Equinox

The 2016 spring equinox in the northern hemisphere occurs Saturday, March 19, at 09:31pm PDT (04:31 UT Sunday, March 20), when the Sun enters Aries.

This is a potently rich and fertile time in our earth's evolution ~ a time in which beautiful, healing changes in consciousness can be born. With love in our hearts, in our thoughts and in our actions, may each one of us plant seeds of transformation that will lead to the healing of our Mother Gaia and all of Her children.

Look Up! ... Saturn-Neptune Square ~ Spiritual Focus, February 14 - 20

Our walls of division do not rise all the way to heaven.
- Saint Philaret, Metropolitan of Moscow

Greetings Everyone,
February 8, 6:39am PST marked the beginning of a new lunar cycle that peaks with the February 22 Full Moon, and ends March 8, 5:54pm PST. The folks at SouledOut.org invite you to participate in the Pisces Festival Global Meditation ~ Audio.

The February 8 New Moon inaugurated the Chinese Fire/Red Monkey New Year also known more poetically as the Year of the Mountain Monkey. "Monkey years ... [are] rich in the unexpected. A year of transformations ... great change ... of discovering your own resources." It's also a "time to address more serious concerns. Play is good, but only in its proper context. Final acclaim comes only after renewed effort."

Lunar Theme: Fortuity & Serendipity "The New Moon lies under the auspices of Delphinus, the Dolphin star system, and over Gruis the Crane ... Delphinus' influence invites us to breathe and trust in higher principle, and to allow ourselves to be guided by higher forces into opportunities or directions that would not occur by our efforts alone ... Gruis the Crane [is] of resolute verdicts, decisive decisions based upon bodies of knowledge, and harbinger of fortuitous tidings, especially regarding legalities, business dealings, constitutional matters, and news associated with new life and new beginnings."

It's that Holy time of year again, Lent.

 


Ah 'Lent - all' Soup, or,
We are all in this together!


 

Many in the world were baptized, touched with water, or perhaps oil, in a ritual to acknowledge our slick, wet entry into this world as part of the human family, which is of course a part of God's great family.
