the month surrounding the full moon in Pisces,
Meditation Focus ~ Overview
SouledOut.org's meditation theme for the spiritual year concludes as we embody, ever more so, our awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way.
Our monthly meditation focus since Aries 2012 has been to work with the seed focus ~
Cosmic Communion ~ Consummation of Life Everlasting
Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Pisces, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.

2013 Pisces Meditation Theme
The Bliss of Sacrifice
Wielding The Electric Fire of Life We Ignite The Seed
In order to tread the Path, one must become that Path itself. This refers to our construction of the connecting channel between the outer, concrete world and the inner planes of the abstract ideal (2), linking us to the larger, cosmic perspective.
This 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." (3)
Bliss, we're told by Alice Bailey, is the pure nature of the Spirit and may be comprehended only upon the soul's realization of oneness with divine essence, on the level of mind ~ following its at-onement with the personal self. (4)
The Bliss of Sacrifice is applied not just in the surrender of the lower self to reveal the higher. The bliss referred to is a profound effect of service, calling moreover for the "... death of that which is higher in the order and scale of being, in order to release that which is lower." (5)
Our very experience affirms the recognition of the group Soul, present and active in our awareness, providing support and stamina. As we meet the challenges that arise during times of collective or individual crisis, we are thereby fortified.
From the perspective of our planetary life, at this time in evolution we are becoming aware of the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (9)
More and more, we recognize that we are all in this endeavor together. Each person's actions potentially can have major ramifications, and through our cosmic perspective ~ inclusive of all life, rather than simply representative of one arena or other ~ we are called to acknowledge our full spiritual nature and to share this wisely with one and all.
Our receptivity to the inflow of cosmic spiritual energy calls upon electric fire, emanating from Deity. Alignment to Divine Purpose or Will thereby brings the Activity of Spirit into dynamic, coherent synthesis. (11)
To the Glory of the One!

Pisces Full Moon Festival
Pisces is always a time to reflect on all our life's many relationships ~ to reaffirm those in alignment with the Soul's expression, and release those no longer serving in the present time.
Our identification with the Divine increases, as we move now once again through the sign Pisces and come together in group formation on the inner planes. These united efforts bring us ever closer to our Divine Destiny.
The dual nature of Pisces is inherent in its symbol ~ the two Fishes linked together by a band. "One fish stands for the soul and the other for the personality or form nature, and between them is to be found the 'thread or sutratma,' the silver cord which keeps them bound to each other throughout the cycle of manifested life." (12)
"This duality of Pisces relates to Blended Radiance. This blended radiance is the result of life, intention and energy being focused into a radiant point of power." (13) The blending is the mending!
Direction and Purpose demonstrate Will, for the Principle of Decision guides our choices and actions providing an opportunity to advance goodwill and right human relations.
Through our meditative practice, we dedicate our Life to service, and the needed group alignment brings transformation and evolution.
As this focus integrates, our practice deepens the meditation service we have come to recognize as our biggest, most potent tool in working together to usher in the age of Aquarius, and so as a group to create heaven on earth.

2013 Pisces Meditation
Full Moon in Pisces ~ Virgo
Pisces Meditation ~ Audio
We now link up with people of goodwill everywhere, creating a 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.
Now we visualize a grid of light all over the earth that connects the light of every lightworker and each sacred energy vortex. This network serves as a conduit through which the heavenly blessings may flow through each of us and to the planet Earth.
When we have achieved this alignment, we become still and receptive ...
to all colors
The Great Invocation
the point of light within the Mind of God
the point of love within the Heart of God
the center where the Will of God is known
the center which we call Humanity
Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
- adapted version (14)
We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious phase of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, always a time of spiritual retreat and contact.

Pisces Information Synthesis
is the light, revealing the light of life itself.
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. (16) Study of the 12 different lights for each of the constellations of the zodiac reveals the symbolic story of the growth of the light body within the Soul of Humanity (the Macrocosm) and within each of us (the Microcosm), and will finally make clear the very purpose of God.
Pisces Zodiacal Deity Three keynotes of the duality of Pisces include bondage or captivity, renunciation or detachment, and sacrifice and death. Pisces can also be seen as governing the generative process. A water sign, Pisces deals with the unconscious aspects of our nature that need to be brought to light.
The Spirit of Sacrifice Sacrifice essentially means, to make holy. It is the hallmark of all world servers.
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 Third Great Approach Cosmic Identification is an expression of this definitive event, taking place in present time.
Avatars The Doctrine of the Coming One is linked to the teaching of every great religion, and at the close of this age a Cosmic Avatar is impressing to appear as a Divine Embodiment.
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.
The Transition of Ages ~ Pisces to Aquarius In the Aquarian age the new message is the "rising of the light," moving from the birth of the Christ, truly the Christ within, to the risen Christ.
Purification Meditation Pisces is the 12th sign of our zodiac, it marks the completion of the spiritual year. This is the time of cleansing and purifying our vehicles in preparation for the new spiritual cycle and the Three Major Spiritual Planetary Festivals.
The Time of Lent This is the time of Lent and other rituals of purification and sacrifice. These rituals honor our ever-evolving journey, our ability see the Lighted Way, our connection to each other and to Divinity.
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.
Lunar Theme: Fortuity "Our New Moon ... lies in late sidereal Capricorn where the constellations Aquarius and Capricorn overlap. ... These stars express a progressive and fortuitous energetic, often associated with good tidings, especially regarding business dealings and legalities. They impel articulate expression and are action oriented. ... Dreamtime can be extra-revelatory in this lunar cycle. Our Last Quarter Moon can motivate a life-changing turn." - Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins Feb. 9, 11:20 pm PST and ends Mar. 11, 12:51 pm PST.

Preparation for Participation in This Meditation Focus
If possible, we suggest being in meditation at the exact time of the full moon. If you are unable to do this, choose a time within 12 hours before or after to align with these energies and be part of this global meditation.
Prior to your meditation take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align your energies.
For this meditation and as each is able to join the world group at the time of the full moon (Monday, February 25 ~ 12:26 pm PST / 20:26 UT), it is suggested to begin meditating earlier so as to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.
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 horizontal plane, know you are uniting with many others who also are attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and that this unified group focus creates a powerful channel for the meditation 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 channel and receive. During this time we hold the attitude of dedication and service, and assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will impart which will make us of greater 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 vibrational energies for the rest of humanity. We shall not formulate for ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible effects.
In the event one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is full, it's important to find some alternate 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 attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist these Divine energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to where there is greatest need.
Emerging from the full moon five-day focus, may we continue to hold the high space contacted at the full moon. The following days are an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, a time of spiritual retreat and contact.
As you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of Pisces.
From new moon to new moon, Sunday, February 10 through Monday, March 11, 2013.
