Our Guide Polaris~the North Star Points Us in the Right Direction ~ Spiritual Focus, August 21 - 27

Polaris

Esoterically speaking, the Pole Star is regarded as the "star of re-orientation"
whereby the art of "refacing and recovering that which is lost" is developed.
This eventually brings a man back to his originating source.

- Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Astrology, p. 196

Sun conjunct Merak
For over a month beginning August 7 each year,
the Sun conjuncts the 7 main stars of the Great Bear constellation

Thanks to Antonella Nobilio and The Planetary System, this linked article is of supreme importance at this particular time in planetary history.

The Pole Star, Polaris, shows us the way to proceed ... it governs Shamballa and Monadic Will.

Merak is connected with the Egoic Will.

Dubhe is connected with the Personality Will. (*)

When all three have been fully unfolded and sacrificed to that which is higher than itself, and are therefore fully aligned ... Three Suns become ONE and further and higher adventures await.

We await the One who has completed this alignment, and therefore align with the highest that we are capable of reaching, thus conforming each thought, word and action that we take in accord with The Directed Purpose of Shamballa ~ which for this planet, is Synthesis.

If we believe as Master DK has told us that the Avatar of Synthesis is approaching our planet and will work through the Christ or another who is appointed, and what other Masters such as Master M have written about the coming Synthesis, we will bend all of our power and will towards laying down the welcome mat for these incoming energies, which must be created from our current environment.

We must help to create the conditions that will allow these energies to precipitate! We have no choice but to work with the energies that are present and try and transmute them whenever possible. The Hierarchy must work through imperfect disciples and so must we work with imperfect human beings.

Let us create the atmosphere and conditions on earth where the energies of this Avatar can arrive and LIVE, and eliminate all those energies which would counteract the energy of SYNTHESIS.

A brief summation of the Principle of Directed Purpose:

1. A great cosmic Avatar can come if the Hierarchy and humanity can stand together with massed intent.

a. He will descend into the three worlds of human endeavour, but no nearer than the mental plane.

b. He will transmit a cosmic energy whose quality is Synthesis. This will express itself through harmony and unity, producing necessarily understanding, promoting goodwill, and eventually ending the separative, isolating tendencies of mankind.

c. His note and vibration can only be sensed by those whose individual note is also synthesis and whose life objective is the will-to-good. These are consequently the Members of the Hierarchy, the disciples and aspirants of the world and a few of the people of goodwill.

2. A Messenger or Avatar of equal rank to the Christ in the Hierarchy (or possibly Christ Himself) may come forth as the Representative of the Avatar of Synthesis and as His transmitting Agent.

a. This lesser Avatar works today as one of the senior Members of the Great White Lodge and is in close touch with the Christ, with the Manu and with the Lord of Civilisation, the Master R.; He will act as the Coordinator between the Hierarchy and Shamballa. He will fuse and blend in Himself, through the quality of His Own life, the three great energies:

The will-to-spiritual power.
The will-to-love in its spiritual connotation.
The will-to-manifest spiritually.

b. The antiquity of the achievement of this Coming One is to be found in the name applied to Him, which is found in so many of the world Scriptures: The Rider on the White Horse. This refers to the time prior to the phrase so well-known in the Christian fields: "The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." In the earlier cycle, the then initiates spoke of the “sacrificial horse, slain to all eternity.” It conveys the same basic idea.

* Information derived from the following passage (which is excerpted at the top of this article) from Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey, p. 195-197 ~

1. The Pointer furthest from the Pole Star [Merak] in the constellation of the Great Bear. This is, esoterically speaking, a great reservoir or focal point for divine energy, carrying out God's purpose. The Pointer nearest to the Pole Star [Dubhe] is expressive of a lower aspect of the will, which ~ in speaking of humanity ~ we call self-will. ...

*Leo* is the sign wherein the consciousness of individuality is developed, utilised and finally consecrated to divine purpose. It is related to Polaris, the Pole Star (found in the Little Bear) and it is also peculiarly susceptible to the influence of that Pointer in the Great Bear which is the nearest to the Pole Star [Dubhe]. Esoterically speaking, the Pole Star is regarded as the "star of re-orientation" whereby the art of "refacing and recovering that which is lost" is developed. This eventually brings a man back to his originating source. It might, therefore, be correctly inferred that this Pointer [Dubhe] and the energy emanating from it guides humanity upon the involutionary path, and is constantly active in its influence upon the man who is still upon the Mutable Cross. Then the energy of the Pointer furthest from the Pole Star [Merak] begins to make its presence felt and a sense of right direction or guidance is registered by the disciple upon the Path, and such guidance (when followed) leads man nearer to the Hierarchy. It is here that the divine necessity of achieving alignment is portrayed for us in the symbolism of the sky and when it has been achieved then there is a direct inflow of divine energy and man is linked up in a new and creative manner to sources of divine supply. Astrologers will do well (in connection with the horoscopes of disciples and particularly of initiates) to consider the two Pointers and the Pole Star. They are mysteriously connected with the three aspects of incarnated man — Spirit, soul and body. More than this it is not permitted to me to convey to you. I may, however, give you another hint. These three stars are embodiments of the three aspects of divine will. It is the three aspects of all expressions of divinity in manifestation which underlie the Science of Triangles. This I will later elaborate.

Tuesday, August 23 2016 ~ Auspicious Day!

In addition to several significant astronomical aspects tomorrow ~ Tuesday August 23 (these are listed at the end of this Comment), the present opposition of Pluto (at 15° 12’ Capricorn, is conjunct Vega) to Sirius (14° Cancer) is purifying us to the core.

Insights gleaned from The Planetary System’s “Sun conjuncts Merak” article, referenced in Nancy's enlightening WeCycle Wisdom post above discussing the North Star and our alignment to the Principle of Directed Purpose ~

After Sirius pops back out from behind the Sun every year, on or within a couple days of August 7 ...
at the same time the Sun when it conjuncts Dubhe on August 7 also begins its transit through the Great Bear stars to go on and conjunct all 7 Big Dipper stars of the Great Bear, first the ladle and then the handle.

So the Sun’s 44-day transit of the Big Dipper stars each year completes on September 20 ~ Autumn Equinox. This timing virtually coincides with the annual calendar phase from Teltane/Lammas to the Equinox.

No wonder the Sirius~Leo Festival is so very important ~
Its timing determines what quality of Will, transmitted from Sirius and the stars of the Great Bear, is directed our way via the full moon alignment at the time of the Festival.


2016's Sirius~Leo Festival on August 18 was exactly one week after the Sun conjuncted Merak on August 11, the Sun (at 26° Leo) at was smack dab in between Merak (20° Leo) and Phecda (1° Virgo).

Besides the following planetary alignments, the Sun exactly conjuncts Phecda on August 23 ...

August 23, 2016 ~ Mars, Saturn and Antares conjunction ~ 9° 52’ Sagittarius

August 23, 2016 ~ Mercury, Venus, Jupiter conjunction ~ 26° 27’ Virgo

Also, Regulus in the constellation Leo, itself a key to the stepdown of energies from Sirius to Earth, is occulted by the Sun on August 22.

Cosmic Love and Blessings, All!
