Sagittarius Festival Global Meditation ~ Audio
SouledOut.org's Meditation Focus for 2020 supports our ever greater awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way as we continue to explore the theme, Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.
During the 2020 spring festival cycle, we attuned to the inflow of energies through the Spiritual Kingdom and aligned with this focus. Now, as the sun continues through the opposite region of the zodiac, we are endeavoring to assimilate the new energies and to integrate these into our service in the world.
Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Sagittarius, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.

2020 Sagittarius Meditation Theme
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
Our meditation alignment for the cycle explores Freedom and Liberation, as pertains to Sagittarius and its one-pointed direction towards Spirit.
This month surrounding the full moon in Sagittarius follows the burning ground of Scorpio. Having dispelled illusions, we're now poised to pursue Divine direction. The Light of Sagittarius illumines our path as we prepare to climb the mountaintop in Capricorn.
Inaugurating this lunar cycle, Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 27° Sagittarius, also conjunct the Heart of the Galaxy. The Galactic Center (GC), or the Heart of our Galaxy, is located near the ecliptic at 27° Sagittarius, and in our epoch the sun conjoins the GC just before the winter solstice ~ when the sun (this year) will have just passed transiting Saturn and Pluto. Auspiciously inaugurating the week-long NGWS Festival. the GC is only a few degrees from the Galactic Equator, and located in the dark rift very close to the bulge we can view on clear nights, in the Milky Way galaxy.
This alignment with Jupiter and Venus reminds of the important significance of this area of the heavens in Chinese astronomy: the Azure Dragon, whose heart is the star Antares. and overall spans all the way from Spica, its horn, to two stars in Sagittarius, its base.
As aspirants and disciples, in present time we consciously realign with the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. In the spirit of sacrifice, we offer our very highest self to our service in the world. Through our alignment with the Principle of Decision, we now become ever steadier in our service expression.
Electric fire relates to the Will aspect of deity and manifests as Unity of Spirit. As Watchers of the Dawn we are called to Wield this force by aligning with and directing the incoming flow of energies to reveal the Synthesis of Life Itself. All are valuable in this endeavor.
Annually, we prepare to align with the cycle's planetary hierarchical meditation beginning each year at the December Solstice, in preparation for the outpouring of spiritual energies at the upcoming Wesak event.

2020 Meditation Theme ~ Annual Cycle
The March equinox initiated our journey for the spiritual year, as we share now in yet a higher alignment to Purpose for our service for the annual cycle.
As each individual unit takes responsibility for applying their highest dedication to Purpose, one's life becomes the Path, itself. We may look to the Cosmic Path of Higher Evolution to further understand our connection to the Life More Abundant.
The Cosmic Path we may consider in relation to Sagittarius is Path III, the Path of Training for Planetary Logoi.
The revealed quality of Synthesis relates largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (4) This is so, according to the Essential Divinity of all life. Recognizing this truth, we are called to surrender ~ to be the Divine Path through the sacrifice of all that is extraneous.
Becoming the Path itself refers to our construction of the connecting channel between the outer, concrete world and the inner planes of the abstract ideal (5), linking us to the larger, cosmic perspective. This is an outgrowth of the ongoing sacrifice we make in service to the One.
The concept of Being the Path is similarly expressed in the words of the Esoteric Catechism pledge of the disciple, affirming the sacrifice made by the soul: "I am the Cross, I am the Way; I tread upon the work I do." (6)
From the standpoint of our planetary life, at this time in evolution we are inaugurating the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (7)

Sagittarius Full Moon Festival
The dual nature of the disciple and the struggle between the human and animal natures is represented in the Centaur, the ancient symbol for Sagittarius. Later the Centaur was replaced by the symbol of the Archer on the white horse, signifying the one-pointed disciple working with the soul.
While we observe the seemingly chaotic world events and through detachment, consider them as manifestation of the evolving Plan of God, we may similarly contemplate our personality issues, daily struggles and the times where our aim goes askew and gain a sense of perspective in light of our spiritual goal of achieving the greatest good, on behalf of All-that-Is.
Through our evolving identification with the Divine essence in all, the unity consciousness requisite for the good of the whole ~ All of Life ~ is developed by means of the Yoga of Synthesis.
In alignment to Purpose, we are given a glimpse of this far distant goal. Fixing our attention, we become poised and aim for it with the arrow of fixed intention. Keeping our focus on the long term goal enables us to deal with those short term difficulties encountered in reaching it.
We see the goal, we reach that goal and then we see another. (10)

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
We now link up with people of goodwill everywhere, as part of the united group channel through which the spiritual forces can become available. Affirming this channel, "We stand poised united as One Soul with our Spiritual Hierarchy." We hold the focus.
We visualize and become the Chalice we have together created, as a grid of light all over the earth connecting the light of every lightworker and each sacred energy vortex. This network serves as a conduit through which the heavenly blessings may flow through every one of us and to the planet Earth.
When we have achieved this, we join in the creative work ...
Gone are me or you.
As we emerge from meditation, we are joined in this stream by lightworkers everywhere on the planet and from on high. With focused mind, heart and will, together we say ...
The Great Invocation

the center where the Will of God is known
the center which we call Humanity

The Lighted Way The entire zodiac can be approached and understood from the angle of light ~ the inner light, soul light ~ and its unfolding, increasing radiance is the manifestation of our divine nature. (13)
The Seven Cosmic Paths "This subject is considered ... to be devoid of form and therefore incognisable to the lower concrete mind." (14) Hence it is through the practice of Living the Radiant Life that we may begin to understand the nature of Spirit, for to bring Spirit fully into our daily lives is service to the One.
The Path of Training for Planetary Logoi The source of this Third Cosmic Path is Betelgeuse, via the sign Sagittarius. "This Path is sometimes called the 'Lotus Path,' as it concerns itself with the construction of the logoic Lotuses of solar Logoi." (15)
Sagittarius Zodiacal Deity "Sagittarius, we are told, is the spirit of truth; it is the sum of all Truth growing out of individual revelation." (16) In Sagittarius, Soul consciousness in its early stages unfolds through the use of intuition and aspiration. Keynote: I vision. (17)
Avatars ~ Divine Embodiments This type of greater Avatar expresses the impulse behind Divine Purpose.
Sagittarius Labor of Hercules "Sagittarius has sometimes been called 'the sign of the effect of Scorpio'. The moment we have freed ourselves from illusion, that moment we enter into Sagittarius and we see the goal. We have never really seen it before, because between us and the goal there is always to be found that cloud of thought forms that prevents us from seeing it." (18)
December Solstice The Winter Solstice occurs each year on December 21. At this time each year the Christ energy enters the Earth, infusing our world with the ideal of perfection and the desire for a re-merging with the One. As the light returns, we may join the Spiritual Hierarchy in beginning their meditation to prepare for the coming Wesak.
Yoga of Synthesis As we focus on the Oneness of All, we are able to express the self in light of the larger perspective and thereby assist in bringing through the Divine Plan and Purpose.
5 Forces Affecting Evolution These cosmic and systemic causes are responsible for the present crisis and difficult situation in the world.
The Night Sky During each lunar cycle the Moon, waxing and waning, journeys through the zodiac. It partners with and enlivens the sparkling stars and glowing planets along the way. As the Moon grows in the light provided by our Sun, we too grow in the light of our Soul. Moon Phases
This lunar cycle begins November 14, 9:07 pm PST and ends December 14, 8:17 am PST.
Astrological Notes: "This new moon makes harmonious aspects with Neptune, Jupiter, and Pluto, thus offering a welcome opportunity for healing, compassion, and tenderness. We are in the cycle of Scorpio, so we can expect our consciousness to be drawn to our emotional depths, with a desire to uncover the deeper psychological truth hidden under the surface of any situation or relationship. After a long period in retrograde, Mars has finally started to move forward again, offering support for plans to start to mobilize and things to get unstuck ... " - David Nicol / LoverEarth

Preparation for Participation in This Meditation Focus
If possible, we suggest being in meditation at the exact time of the full moon. For this meditation, and as each is able to join the world group at the time of the full moon (Monday, November 30 at 1:30 am PST / 09:30 UT), it's suggested to begin meditating earlier so to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.
If you are unable to join us at this time, choose a time within 12 hours before or after to align with these energies and participate in this global meditation.
Prior to your meditation take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align your energies.
Consider what is the appropriate way to join in this meditation ... you may wish to participate in group formation on the physical plane as well as on the inner planes. Whether or not you choose to be "alone" on the physical, know you are uniting with many others who also are attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and that this group focus creates a powerful channel for our meditation service to be potent and effective.
The Full Moon Festivals Culminate over a Five-Day Period ...
Our meditation focus beginning at the new moon leads into the two days of preparation immediately preceding the full moon. These are to be dedicated to spiritual reflection and detachment from everyday concerns, as each prepares to become a vessel for the energies of light and love they will receive and channel. At this time we hold the attitude of dedication and service, and seek to assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will impart which will make us of spiritual use.
The day of the full moon itself is the day of safeguarding, one of inner peace and silence during which we attempt to contact and consciously hold the energies for the rest of humanity. We will not formulate for ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible effects. While one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is full, it's important to find some quiet time to reflect alone or use this opportunity to meditate with others of like mind and focus.
The two succeeding days are called the days of distribution. We now turn the attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist these spiritual energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to where there is greatest need.
We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious day of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, a time of spiritual retreat and contact. If you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of Sagittarius.
From new moon to new moon, Sunday, November 15 through Monday, December 14, 2020.

Divine Truths of Deity These basic truths are commonly held by all the world's revealed religions.
Cosmic Identification It is through the practice of identification with the Divine Life itself that we may begin to comprehend the nature of Spirit. And, to bring Spirit fully into our daily lives is service to the One.

The Spiritual Kingdom Manifests We approach the Hierarchy and as this occurs, Humanity evolves into the Spiritual Kingdom.
The Fact of the Path to God "All paths lead to the same place," it is said. Indeed, that we are able to access this course is a key to our redemption out of matter in our inevitable return to Spirit.
