The Wesak Full Moon Festival
The Wesak is a Full Moon Festival occurring during the sign of Taurus (April 20 - May 20). An ancient legend says the Buddha, for a brief period, renews His touch and association with the work of our planet at this time. This Full Moon Festival of the Buddha releases forces of enlightenment from our highest spiritual planetary center, Shamballa. These forces spark initiation and are stepped down for humanity through the Buddha, the Christ and the Spiritual Hierarchy. The Wesak Festival, a time when the Buddha and the Christ come together in a sacred ritual, is spiritually known to be the supreme moment in the annual cycle.

Wesak's Full Moon Location
The Wesak Full Moon, at the time of its exact fullness, is always positioned in the constellation of Libra the Balance. Libra was once a part of two constellations, Scorpius and Virgo. The map below shows these 3 constellations.
During the time of Julius Caesar the Romans created Libra as the twelfth constellation to represent Roman justice. They made the two bright Zuben stars, the two pincer claws of Scorpius (Chelae in this image), into the arms of Libra the Balance. Libra was once considered the scales of the goddess of Justice, which Virgo the Virgin represented.

Libra demands justice and the perfect point of equilibrium, where neither spirit nor matter dominates. It's as if the "missing pincer claws" of Scorpius create Libra's razor-edged path.
The Holy Grail of All Faiths
