Look Up! ... Orion Rules the Winter Night

Hello Night Sky Travelers,
January 20, 5:14am PST marked the beginning of a new lunar cycle that peaks with the February 3 Full Moon and ends February 18, 3:47pm PST.

In 2015, first of six supermoons comes on January 20

Lunar Theme: Clarifying Motive "Our January 20, 2015 New Moon occurs just as Mercury stations to begin its retrograde ... Our New Moon stars impel us to concretize our visions and ideals into demonstrable form. They impart a desire for independence and motivate independent pursuits, generally for personal gain, whether for material gain, for position or advantage in life, or for greater personal knowledge and understanding. They inspire intellectual curiosity, inquisitiveness and discovery of that which is hidden, but most of all, they impel us to examine and clarify our own personal motives that formulate our lives."

The folks at invite you to celebrate the current lunar month by participating in the Aquarius Festival Global Meditation.

Our Part in Implementing the Divine Purpose

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide our wills ~
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

- The Great Invocation

Why Is Humanity Needed at All?

What is the portion of the One Work that all are called upon to assist at this time in our planetary history?

Could it be to assist in the process of anchoring the energy of Will and Synthesis into our Planetary Life?

Rising Up in 2015

And now let us welcome the New Year

New Year's Global Meditations

We call your attention to 2 very worthwhile offerings beginning on New Year's Day,
for participation during the entire year ahead ...

The Rhythm of the Ages & Sages - Week of Dec. 28 – Jan. 3

Tread softly, for this is holy ground.
It may be, could we look with knowing eyes,
this spot we stand on is Paradise.

- Christina Rossetti

As we close the year 2014 to inaugurate 2015, there are compounding intensities in all realms of planetary life ~ individual, interpersonal, and collective.

We live in a manifesting context where cycles herald the timetables for growth and expression. Cycles are thereby measures of energies and karma being played out in experience.

Attuning to the Rhythm of the Ages and of the Sages, we recognize there to be a new and different flow presently available that is greatly affecting consciousness and activity.

Look Up! ... It's Heavenly!

Hello Night Sky Travelers,
A new lunar cycle began December 21, 5:36pm PST, 2 1/2 hours after the exact solstice. This cycle peaks with the January 4 Full Moon and ends January 20, 5:14am PST.

The folks at invite you to celebrate the current lunar month by participating in the Capricorn Festival Global Meditation.

This edition of the "Look Up! Reminder" is short and sweet, yet chock full of heavenly navigation.

Lunar Theme: Parting the Waters The Solstice Gate of God New Moon "Our Solstice-Gate of God-New Moon [in sidereal Sagittarius] brings a prominent focus to an acceleration and engagement of greater and longer-term evolutionary changes ... Rather than seeing physical obstacles that one must dissect, circumvent and overcome to reach those ideals, the Archer [Sagittarius] flows as one within this movement of light to achieve those ideals. Uranus and Pluto [Revolution & Revelation] maintain a very tight and intense orb from here on (within 1°) as they approach their final [7th] geocentric square, which occurs in March of 2015 ... We can expect to see a dramatic but slow progression of radical action and revolutionary change increasing over the several years ahead in many areas of society, but also impelling progressive creative action for new solutions to the changes we face."

A Date with Destiny

… the *Laws of the Soul* … are laws concerned primarily with the
establishing of the great Fellowship of the Universe.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and the Initiations

The Fellowship of the Universe:
Our Humanity has a Planetary, Solar and Cosmic Task!

Are we conscious of the fact that all of humanity will eventually become not only transfigured initiates, but Arhats, then Masters and finally Buddhas! Many taking the higher initiations while still in human bodies.

There are different words in different traditions to explain the various stages of spiritual unfoldment. But humanity en masse is now on its way! So many of our Earth’s humanity now have entered The Path that leads back to The Beginning ... no matter what vehicle is chosen, what teaching, religion, philosophy, or just listening to the Heart and developing the mind.

“Be Not Distracted” ~ Week of 12/8 - 12/14

... Transform everyday life into a Festival of the Spirit ...
- Agni Yoga #304

Implicit in our striving through Sagittarian 1-pointed focus is the injunction to “be not distracted” from that aligned path which leads to our sacred goal.

Soul Alignment necessarily emanates from Grounding to Purpose, and vice versa. We recognize that the Soul itself is anchored through the Monad, connected through Essential Divinity to all other Monads in the One Life.

Alignment to Purpose

Now is the time to know that all that you do is sacred.
- Hafiz

Purpose is associated with Shamballa and the planetary Head center, also known as the Council Chamber of Sanat Kumara. Purpose, then, is essentially 1st Ray in character, and relates to the Monad.

Lunar Theme: Metamorphosis "Our November 22, 2014 New Moon lies in the midst of a stellium of planets ... This area of the heavens is about transmuting lower-self desires and patterns into a higher neurological resonance that results in self-mastery ... One of the primary events occurring in this lunar cycle is the sixth out of seven Uranus-Pluto geocentric squares [Revolution and Revelation] ... The Venus-planet cycles ... engage a metamorphic healing process, especially about judgments regarding wrong doings / blunders of the past, cultivating a new and clearer focus, dedication and commitment of an open heart, and allowing a greater level of nourishment to enter heart and to reciprocate from heart ... Venus and Pluto ... [are] impelling us to use the power of heart to steer our intent ..." Click the lunar theme link for more insights by Nick Fiorenza.
