2017 MAJOR SPIRITUAL FESTIVALS

The 3 major Planetary centres must work together in harmony for World peace, progress and prosperity of all.

The three major World Festivals are celebrated each year at the full moons of Aries, Taurus and Gemini respectively. The Full Moon of Aries is celebrated by Christians all over the world at Easter whilst at the Full Moon of Taurus, Buddhists mark the festival of Enlightenment. The following Full Moon of June is the festival of all Humanity who have found their souls and live in the spirit of Brotherhood which Jesus Christ came to promulgate more than two thousand years ago. Jesus Christ is the world Saviour and world Teacher of Peace and Brotherhood, also known as the Bodhisattva in the East, the Teacher of angels and men.

 

  1. Christ Full Moon– April 10/11, 2017   (Sun in Aries)
    Honour of the Christ within all of us / the Planetary Christ.
  1. Wesak Full Moon– May 10/11, 2017 (Sun in Taurus)
    Buddha’s birthday, honoring the God within all of us / within all of Creation.
  1. Goodwill / World Invocation Day Full Moon– June 9, 2017 (Sun in Gemini) Honouring of spiritual unity in humanity.

 

It should be noted that Christian symbolism, along with most religious symbolism, is based on astrological lore and ancient astronomy, little as Christians, for example, may like to admit it, or even be aware of it. But, there is a larger point to be made: Since these themes and astronomical/symbolic themes are found in common with most if not all the great world religions, past and present, then these themes are common to all of us. They represent universal truths. They are part of our collective Unconscious and because of that, no one religion or belief system can claim to be ‘The One Truth’, or the only way to approach one’s divine nature.

The New Age disciple must become aware of the spheres of influence in which s/he lives, moves and have his being. Astronomical facts underlie astrological interpretations. The planets and signs we see out there also exist within us. As above so below is an occult maxim.

Easter. Aries. Planetary Head Center

The Easter Full Moon is the festival of Shamballa. Shamballa is the mythical city, the New Jerusalem, the Crown center of our planet Earth, the “Centre where the Will of God is known”, the “Secret Place of the Most High”.  The resurrected Light and life of the spiritual Sun is celebrated at sunrise on the first Sunday after the full Moon of Aries as Easter. The vital Spirit of the Earth awakens.  Aries is related to resurrection, because in the Spring new life appears in the flora and fauna in the northern hemisphere of our globe. We get a new lease of life, to use a modern phrase, and the promise of renewal is everywhere evident and is available for all irrespective of where you live.  We feel renewed in the spring of Easter.  These concepts are so deeply imbedded in our collective unconscious whether or not one is a Christian or living anywhere, north or south, east or west.

 

This planetary Head centre works directly thru the Heart and Throat centres and thereby control all the remaining centres. Esoteric Science teaches that there are 7 main energy centers in the human frame called ‘Chakras’ in Eastern Philosophy. There is a resonance and correspondence between the individual’s chakras and the planetary energy centres.


CHAKRAS – WHEELS OF ENERGY – WHEELS OF LIFE


Chakras are energy centres in our bodies. They are the openings for ‘life force energy’ to flow in and out of our aura. Their function is to nourish and vitalize our physical body and aid awareness to the development of our consciousness. Each chakra contains data referring to our past, present and future thoughts, feelings and emotions.

The word Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit.  A Chakra is a spinning wheel of energy that is found within each one of us.   It is a spinning vortex of energy created within us by the interpenetration of consciousness and the physical body. The Chakra system is a map of consciousness. It is a complete system of seven spinning vortexes of energy.  They enable us to manifest and act in the material world, to bring abstracts into solidity.  It is through the chakras that our expressions are directed.


Whatever is going on in your body, your relationships, your life is coming through your chakras.  Our Chakras control the patterns from which we live, how we live, and what we present to the world.

There are 7 major Chakras and 122 minor Chakras.  Our Chakras are linked to sounds, light, colors, planets, crystals, the elements, and many other key essentials of the universe.  During our lives our Chakras may become blocked or too open or too closed, creating‘stuckness’ within that particular area. This results in our presenting behaviors and patterns, as well as our physical ailments.  Our Chakras control the patterns from which we live, how we live, and what we present to the world.  To heal these patterns is to bring our Chakras into total balance and alignment. That is, to connect to our higher selves and to realize the oneness that is.  Our blockages may come from past mental traumas, physical traumas, and they may also have been inherited from our ancestors.  (Miasmatic)

Just as there are 7 major energy centers in the human frame there are also 7 planetary energy centers within our planet and thru which our planetary Life expresses Itself. The Planetary Head centre is known as Shamballa, the new Jerusalem, the center where the will of God is Known whilst the Planetary Heart centre where the love of God is concentrated and sent out as radiant loving and healing energy constitutes the Hierarchy of Liberated Souls  called by Christians, ‘the Kingdom of God’.  The Planetary Throat centre is related to the 4th. Kingdom, the Human kingdom. The Mineral, Plant and Animal kingdoms correspond to the lower chakras or energy centres of the Base, Sacral and Solar plexus chakras respectively.

 

The 3 major Planetary centres must work together in harmony for World peace, progress and prosperity of all, hence the need to link up our consciousness with the energies of the three major spiritual festivals of the new Aquarian Age in which we  have just began to live in.
At each Full Moon of Easter we celebrate the Birthday of the Sun on Earth. Just as the Sun/Spirit is said to be exalted in Aries in the science of Astrology so is the Son exalted in the House of the Father -Shamballa-and is celebrated at Easter time. Lord Jesus Christ was the first of our humanity to show the way to the Father’s House.  But the Sun’s natural home is in the zodiacal sign of Leo, the heart and soul of the zodiac. The Sun is the expression of the Son of our Father-Mother God and though resident in Leo must arise and make the journey upward to the Father’s Home. 

At the Easter Full Moon, creative energy is at its highest potential.  The vitality of the Easter spring pours forth from the chalice of the Moon. There is the opportunity to realize Selfhood, to become consciously involved in a new cycle of creation. The Aries full Moon energizes and initiates the soul into new directions.

 

Aries brings with it the opportunity for realizing greater spiritual freedom, whether in one’s own life or for the greater public, and often for both. You as the Soul can begin to release all limiting beliefs, unwanted behaviors and stifling thoughts, all unwanted baggage or load of karma that you may have been carrying. You begin to release all thoughts of limitations and all negative attitudes that weigh you down and you are encouraged to strive past them to embrace the promise of breakthroughs and release that the Supreme Spirit has willed for us.

Shamballa is the Sun center on our Earth, the Center from which pours the radiant light and life of God. But at the heart of Shamballa itself is the Lord of Sacrifice, our Lord of Life, Love and Peace Himself, the Lord of the World Who wants us to be well, happy, joyous, and free. We are renewed and revitalized by the radiant light & life of God that pours into each chalice each year.

 

The 2017 Full Moon of Taurus- The Wesak Festival

The Wesak festival of the East which follows the Easter or Aries Full Moon is the festival of the Buddha and is a celebration of Enlightenment and Freedom.  The Forces of Enlightenment are active during this festival and throughout the month of May. These forces emanate from the Heart of God, and transmit the second principle of Divinity, Love-Wisdom, leading to Divine understanding and strengthening those who serve humanity.  The Wesak festival which follows the Easter Festival is celebrated in the East at the Full Moon of Taurus and this year occurs on May 10 2017. It is dedicated to the great Lord Buddha, the Lord of Compassion and Understanding, the Enlightened One, the Founder of Buddhism, just as the Lord Christ is the founder of the Christian religion. The energy of the Enlightened One is the great light of the intuitional or the buddhic plane which comes from the constellation Taurus. It is said that the Lord Buddha was born at the Full Moon of Taurus, reached Enlightenment and passed on at the Full Moon of Taurus.

 

THE Full Moon of May

Wesak occurs when the Sun is in Taurus and we have a Scorpio Full Moon – considered by some to be the most powerful Full Moon of the year.  The Moon falls in Scorpio, desire is sublimated into aspiration and eventually this   becomes conformity to the Will of God. Gautama, the Buddha, is closely connected with the sign of the Bull. It is more than coincidence that his birth, illumination and death all occurred at the time of the full moon of Taurus. The right control and transmutation of desire is basic in Buddha’s teaching and is major problem for the striving Taurean disciple and all disciples for that matter. The striving disciple is asked to ‘kill’ or to ‘crucify the flesh'(Gal 5:22) or his lower self focused in his desire body; his Moon must fall or be killed in Scorpio. The lower self is sacrificed for the inner Man, the Christ Self or Atman.

What is Earth Day?

The Sun’s transit through Taurus highlights Venus who rules Taurus as well as being the spiritual ruler of Earth. Venus is identified with Mary, the World Mother, the God-mother who ensures our planet’s sustenance. We celebrate Earth Day on 22 April each year when the Sun transits Taurus.   Venus represents the Divine Feminine – the Mother Mary (May is the Month of Mary).   During the Wesak Full Moon it is said that a divine Pentagram of Venusian Light opens a portal to Shambhala through our Hearts.

 

Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on our Earth on April 22 each year since 1970. On which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.   Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Taurus is said to be an earth sign, related to our Earth on whom we depend for our sustenance. The fight against climate change has never been more critical, and we need every single person who cares about the future of our planet to help us fight to make our planet sustainable. Every minute you wait is a minute too long:  Help Earth Day Network continue defending our planet from climate change!

THE CHRIST & THE BUDDHA: CHRISTIANITY & BUDDHISM

At the Easter festival in which we celebrate the triumph of spirit over matter and the following Festival of Enlightenment we celebrate the two greatest Revealing agents our world has known, the Christ Jesus, the Founder of the modern Christianity Movement  and the Buddha, the Inaugurator of Buddhism. No doubt these two Religions have swayed the world for several centuries. The Buddha revealed the cause of human suffering is wrong DESIRE and personal selfishness. He indicated the way of Liberation whilst JC taught that every human being is a child of God and the development of the Christ consciousness and spirit is the goal for all members of the human family. See……..

 

The pope (Latin: papa from Greek: πάππας pappas, a child’s word for “father”),] also known as the pontiff, is the Bishop of Rome, and therefore ex officio the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church. The primacy of the Roman bishop is largely derived from his role as the traditional successor to Saint Peter, to whom Jesus is supposed to have given the keys of Heaven and the powers of “binding and loosing”, naming him as the “rock” upon which the church would be built. The current pope is Francis, who was elected on 13 March 2013, succeeding Benedict XVI.

 

Unlike the Catholic Church, Buddhism is not hierarchically organized. Therefore, there is no earthly, physical head of the Buddhist religion as a whole. That being said, there are spiritual masters and abbots of monasteries who have a definite prominence within Buddhist communities. Probably the most well-known of these figures is Tenzin Gyatso, better known to the world as H. H. The 14th Dalai Lama who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. The central institution in most Buddhist communities is the monastery. Like in Western monasticism, the Abbot or Abbess of the monastery is charged with the physical and spiritual well-being of those in his or her care.


His Holiness the Dalai Lama is greatly revered in the Buddhist World, and is also highly respected as an international statesman, and as a man of peace and great wisdom. His quotes convey a mixture of great profundity, earthy practicality, and also not a little humour.


“We have to make a sustained effort, again and again, to cultivate the positive aspects within us.  We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

Accelerate your Journey to Wholeness & Freedom thru Your Transformation: the power to change our lives unfolds from within & now lies in our hands and hearts.

The spiritual year of 2017 which began when our Sun entered the zodiacal first sign Aries at the Equinox is preceded this year by two eclipses, first a Lunar eclipse on Feb 10/11 2017 and the recent Solar Eclipse of Feb 26 2017.

The planetary alignments accompanying this year 2017 provide us with a full dose of spiritual energy, breathing new life and fire which speeds us into new directions.

We continue the message of how you can uplift yourself from the mess you find yourself in this second section of this 3-Part message we share with you. 
You are a Powerful Creator. You have the Power to make all things new!

There was a time when Astronomy and Astrology were one, the latter giving meaning and consciousness to the former.  The Sun and the Moon and the other planets which Astronomy observes and categorizes become in Dr. C G. Jung’s terminology Archetypes of our collective Unconscious.

 

Wikipedia tells us about our collective Unconscious: “We experience the unconscious through symbols. The Collective unconscious is a term coined by Carl Jung, refers to structures of the unconscious mind which are shared among beings of the same species. According to Jung, the human collective unconscious is populated by instincts and by archetypes: universal symbols … The collective unconscious comprise in itself the psychic life of our ancestors right back to the earliest beginnings. It is the matrix of all conscious psychic occurrences, and hence it exerts an influence that compromises the freedom of consciousness in the highest degree, since it is continually striving to lead all conscious processes back into the old paths.”[5]

 

“The collective unconscious appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious. We can see this most clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic forms are organized through the projection of images. This explains the influence of the stars as asserted by astrologers. These influences are nothing but unconscious introspective perceptions of the collective unconscious.”

Astronomy delineates the solar system in which our planet lives and moves along with others into inner and outer planets. The inner planets include our planet Earth as well as Venus, Mercury and Mars divided by an asteroid belt from the outer planets, the gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, the so-called social and transcendental planets.

Showers of Blessing Begins in 2017!

There is something wonderful happening to us through the end of 2017, there is beneficial climate or vibration of harmony between the gas giants or outer planets of our solar system: Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. They make positive and beneficial intra-aspects which can produce positive and progressive events or opportunities for us here on Earth. Good things can come our way this year if we strive for the true, the good and the beautiful in our lives. Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus are symbols from our collective Unconscious and are three heavyweights in our solar system that influence us all, whether we know it or not.  They are part of the archetypes of our collective unconscious that can empower the individual soul to make the break for the better. This is good news for all who strive for freedom from oppressive or depressive circumstances. These planets are archetypes of our collective unconscious which can foster you with the pure positive energy that will propel you to your freedom and success. You should do what makes you feel good and stay positive.

You must keep an open mind and focus on the good you expect in your life. Focus on what is working for you. Focus on your strengths rather than dwell on your past weaknesses or failures. This will align you with the creative energies available during this period. You can attract abundance and love and experience promotion in your work. A windfall perhaps can come your way that can change your life. And all your hopes and wishes can come true this year. Magic is happening in your life this year! What does your heart desire?  Know how to use this configuration of positive energy for greater love and prosperity in your life.  This positive optimism is endorsed by the Heavens and corroborated by the stars in our system and in our universe.

 

Winds of Change as Jupiter (Beneficence) Activates Uranus (Awakener) December 26, 2016 March 3 and September 28, 2017

The aspirant for freedom must take advantage of the spiritual climate. Jupiter (the Great Benefic) relating directly to Uranus (Freedom Bringer) is a powerful configuration for positive change. This energy will be around through November 2017. This is good news if you are striving for change and growth. This is the most positive aspect of all astrological aspects or relationships this year and is called by some the ‘thank the Lord’ configuration. You can make constructive changes in your life with this aspect in the air. You should be willing to experiment. Fear of change should be replaced with the enthusiasm to try new things. This positive energy tips you away from stubborn resistance towards a willingness to move forward, upward and Godward in your life this year!

Jupiter in positive energy flow with Saturn also in 2017

Jupiter (abundance, luck & expansion) is currently expressing itself through Libra (harmony, justice, truth, partnership, social, diplomacy) until Oct 2017 and currently moving in a retrograde transit through Libra until June 10, 2017 when he moves forward again.   Jupiter brings growth, good fortune and abundance. Jupiter promising expansion will also be in a positive energy flow with pragmatic Saturn for most of 2017. This too is good news. This energy creates business expansion as well as the opportunity for soul growth and development. It will help you and the world economies to grow and can deepen harmony in international relationships. You will experience breakthroughs in your line of business if you have prepared for it. You should approach growth and expansion with a careful eye and be practical in your approach. You should open yourself to new possibilities.  You should be neither idealistic nor too conservative. This is an excellent energy for business expansion because you will want to take calculated chances and can grow past your boundaries. You should be prudent and thrifty in how you go about it though.  Jupiter is assisting the wonderful energy happening with Saturn and Uranus, who are making a trine (positive energy flow) with it all of 2017.

 

SATURN & URANUS GUARANATEE POSITIVE CHANGE

Saturn and Uranus make a fabulous trine (harmonious energy flow) which started in December 2016. This supportive aspect continues all of 2017 into 2018.  They dance in harmony from 20 degrees Aries/Sagittarius into 0 degrees Taurus/Capricorn thru to 2018.

 

Saturn is referred to as the planet of karma, discipline or the dispenser of justice.  It is a factual planet that induces us to face our personal reality, and is thorough, unrelenting and breaks down our control issues.  Saturn can be viewed as the wise old sage; Saturn forces us to face our past in the present and in the present prepare for the future.

 

With Saturn retrograde or apparently going backward, it is a time to assess our failures, learn from our mistakes and emerge from the introspection with wisdom and understanding.  The stabilizing trine between Saturn and Uranus is helpful for change. Saturn has great respect for old methods and the conventional path whereas Uranus is innovative and forward thinking. With the two working harmoniously together, this is like a structural upgrade of your system. Think of a sleek installation of a new software platform that has the potential to give you greater independence and stronger integrity. Saturn and Uranus may seem like strange bedfellows but both rule the sign Aquarius, where you can upgrade your network.

 

With Jupiter involved in this dance of the giants his can mean a promotion or an uplift or even windfall. Sudden opportunities come your way so you can do the things you only dreamed about doing. It can empower you to make the needed changes in your life with grace and ease. You can work within the system to make positive changes during 2017/2018. You can work within the structures in your life and make your life better. There is a creative revolution for greater freedom. This energy empowers your creative self-expression. As you free yourself you will free all for All Are One.

 

Saturn in positive energy flow with Uranus is good news also. You have tremendous support from the universe in making positive changes in your life, work and relationships. The positive energy relationship between Saturn, Uranus and Jupiter should give you optimism in your spiritual outlook. This is also giving you the power to manifest your heart’s desire. You can be a powerful creator. What do you want to create this year? Saturn rules the physical world we live whilst Uranus rules an higher Consciousness- the spiritual or Christ Consciousness. Both Saturn and Uranus empower you to make great strides in your personal and career development. Your spiritual development can advance also. Your career can take you to new heights and advancement can happen in your work.  You can deepen your love commitments and friendships this year as Love lasts with Saturn in beneficent relationship with Jupiter.

Saturn and Uranus are teaming up this year and this gives the power to the individual to make creative changes in your life. This combination requires you to use discipline, order and responsibility combined with innovation and risk-taking; this unlocks the secret sauce for your success. This combination leads you to greater freedom and creativity. You can come to a new level of insight and understanding.  You should be willing to work within your limitations. In fact, you can use your limitations as tools to manage and transform your life. Your apparent limitations are no longer a burden but rather guideposts to your lasting success. You will seek out ways to constructively change limitations and setbacks to be the foundations for your takeoff to freedom and success.. All these will help to transform the difficult but in the end successful challenges we have experienced with Pluto and Uranus in challenging aspect 2015-2017. Throwing out the baby with the bath water is not the solution. You should be willing to work within the system and structures already in place. This gives you tremendous support from those in authority because they see you as a team player and not a threat any more.  Success is yours!  Be ready for your advancement and breakthrough!

 


You Can Move from fear to freedom….from failure to Success …for the Love and Grace of God can conquer all fears and failures.

Attitude is everything. A negative attitude cannot only ruin your year it may be costly to your progress. You can choose to be positive and proactive, even when your growth appears slow and painful. You ought to be willing to do your own inner work. This means taking full responsibility for your choices and behavior. The secret of your success in this transformational climate is your willingness to go through an intense growth period which the previous months or years have prepared you for. Do what you must and keep moving and be forward focused. Ultimately, your Soul-Self must take dominion over your ego personality for your lasting success. Finding new solutions in solving your problems requires you to move up in consciousness and get to higher ground. You know the old saying that you cannot solve a problem at the same level of consciousness that it was created. Stepping up will give you a clearer view in your life path direction.  Listening is a powerful tool to gain insight, understanding and clarity especially if you pray and meditate consciously. You want to listen to your inner Being. Listen to your Soul, your mind is only a messenger of your inner and higher Self and Soul.

 

Experience has shown that one can transform one’s frustrations and/or dissatisfactions to reach for something more satisfying and be empowered in the process.   You should take every adversity and/or challenge as an opportunity to learn, grow and advance from the experience.

We hope we have helped you increase your sense of well-being and vitality. We hope we have helped you to stay strong by innovating yourself and preparing you to move from breakdown to experience brilliant Breakthroughs which will enable you create a great life for yourself this year and the next several years.

 

Finally, Kelly Rosano from www.Kellyrosano.com, that excellent Counsellor on the spiritual development of the Soul counsels and encourages you to “take charge of your life. Do what is right for you. Listen to your soul. Your soul holds your soul agreements. That is what you have come to do and with whom. What are you attracting? Do you like what you are attracting? If not, change yourself. You are your point of attraction. The energy you send out is the results you get back. Change your habits that are not working. Change your behavior. You will change your life for the better. You can love your life. You can love your work. What is holding you back? Who or What is in your way to your happiness?”
