Look Up! ... Goodwill's Galactic Full Moon

The will-to-good of the world knowers
is the magnetic seed of the future.
The will-to-good is the Father aspect,
whilst goodwill is the Mother aspect,
and from the relation of these two the
new civilisation, based on sound spiritual
(but utterly different) lines, can be founded.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and The Initiations

Hello Night Sky Travelers,
May 6, 12:29pm PDT marked the beginning of the 2016 Festival of Goodwill lunar cycle that ends June 4, 7:59pm PDT. The Goodwill Festival is the third 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, aligned 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 Goodwill Full Moon is exact Saturday, May 21 at 2:14pm PDT (21:14 UT)

The folks at SouledOut.org invite you to celebrate the current lunar month by participating in the Goodwill Full Moon Festival of Unification.

Mercury's rare transit of the Sun May 9 was fun to watch online. I felt blessed to see a solar prominence emerge behind Mercury, as well as see sunspots across the Sun! This photo is exquisite and this one is unique Tiny Mercury and the International Space Station You can see more at Mercury Transit Photo Gallery.

Lunar Theme: New Beginnings "This May 6, 2016 New Moon resides amongst the stars of the Ram ... at the ecliptical location of the Sun's exaltation [Map], making this an empowering lunar cycle ... to step forth into a more appropriate position in life, to gain greater freedom in life, or to create some type of transformation in our lives to do so. It is of new beginnings ... to take action ... surrendering any righteous attitudes we may hold about deserving more or becoming more than we are, which creates an inner tension that keeps us from the very thing we seek ... this location ... is of a regenerative nature ... can also be volatile ... requires a need to channel this energy ..."

At the full moon during the sign Gemini, widely known among perpetrators of the Ageless Wisdom as the Christ’s Festival and as the Festival of Humanity, there tends to be emphasis on themes related to the 3 I’s ~ Individuation, Initiation, and Identification.

As Individual human units, we take Initiation into the spiritual kingdom through Identification with our Divine essence or spirit, within the Whole of Life to which we belong.

Cycles & Rhythms ~ From Atom to Infinite

The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness;
and knows that yesterday is but today's memory
and tomorrow is today's dream.

Monday, May 9, 2016: Mercury passes directly in front of the Sun!

Be Eye Safe. Never look directly at the Sun.

This transit is visible in most parts of the world except Japan, parts of eastern Asia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

Mercury will come into view on the sun’s face at 7:12 a.m. EDT (11:12 UTC). It’ll make a leisurely journey across the sun’s face, reaching mid-point at approximately 10:47 a.m. EDT (14:47 UTC) and finally exiting at 2:42 p.m. EDT (18:42 UTC). Translate to your time zone here. The entire 7.5-hour path across the sun will be visible across the U.S. East – with magnification and proper solar filters – while those in the U.S. West can observe the transit in progress after sunrise.
                        - EarthSky.org

Transits of Mercury happen only 14 times in the 21st century (2001 to 2100). The previous one occurred November 8, 2006, and the next one occurs November 11, 2019.

Wesak -> Goodwill Safeguarding ~ Utilizing The Great Invocation

When that Plan is sensed, there comes the realisation of the unity of all beings,
of the synthesis of world evolution and of the unity of the divine objective.
All life and all forms are seen then in their true perspective;
a right sense of values and of time then eventuates. When the
Plan is truly intuited and at first hand, then constructive
effort becomes inevitable and there is no lost motion.

- Alice A. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age I p. 25

Wesak~Goodwill Safeguarding

The Great Invocation’s essential meaning both encapsulates and epitomizes the true significance of Wesak Festival and Safeguarding the newly inflowing energies, in preparation of the Gemini Festival of Goodwill, this year on Saturday, May 21.

From the Point of Light within the Mind of God
Let Light Stream forth into our Minds,
Let Light Descend on Earth.

Annually, the Buddha engages in the Wesak Ceremony’s very pure conveyance of Light from on High, just as is described in the first three lines of The Great Invocation. Through his annual act on behalf of humanity and all on Earth, the Forces of Enlightenment become activated.

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 ...

Wesak Pilgrimage & 2016 Global Meditation ~ Audio

Wesak ~ Audio

If [the New Group of World Servers] can aspire, pray, meditate and serve,
focusing in unison with all other servers at the time of the May full moon,
the salvaging of humanity can go forward with much greater speed than
heretofore, and the results will be appreciably apparent.

- Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Psychology II

Wesak Festival Global Meditation ~ Audio
Thursday, April 21 at 10:24 pm PDT ~ 05:24 UT Friday, April 22

The Wesak Festival is a time each year characterized by Spiritual Approach, when the Wesak Legend is reenacted in present time at the moment of the full moon during the sign Taurus.

Just as the Buddhist pilgrims who come together in physical formation from the surrounding districts to the remote location of Mt. Kailish, high in the Himalayas “at the top of the world” … so are we also making the journey symbolically in order to arrive in planetary group formation for meditative group alignment and service.

Divine Flow

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

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.
