Esoteric Astrology as news for week April 25, 2013
Thursday is the Buddha Full Moon Taurus Wesak Festival. A great legend says that at the time of the full moon the great “Knowers of Divinity” gather from the many worlds to greet the Buddha who, once a year, at the exact time of the April full moon and for eight minutes afterward, streams into Earth a blessing from Shamballa, home of our God, Sanat Kumara, Regent from Venus.
The blessing transmits Divine Will, Purpose, Love & Wisdom to humanity. Buddha (Wisdom) and Christ (Love) work in unison during this festival.
More than 2,000 years ago the Buddha brought light to the East while the Christ brought Love/Wisdom to the West. These two Brothers continue to work together serving humanity, particularly during the Wesak festival.
At the very moment of the moon, to the words of the Great Invocation, the energy body of the Buddha slowly precipitates down to a level very close to the physical plane. A powerful vibration is felt in the crowd.
The Will and Love of the Father is sent forth, fusing and blending Earth’s kingdoms. All ‘waters of life” are blessed, the world awakens; light rises over the horizon and hovers above the crowd. It is the Great Lord Buddha bringing a blessing to the world. This is the supreme spiritual moment of the entire year. And now we begin the three days of Safeguarding. Here is a YouTube on the Wesak Festival in a valley in the Himalayas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t0Uo97O-O0
ARIES: You feel content and “at home” while simultaneously feeling restless for something more. Perhaps it’s money and resources, or having specific values and financial security. You want to enjoy what you have while also living a simple life. An interesting interaction takes place. You find you relate well to those in a position of helping you financially. Be sure to maintain the highest integrity.
TAURUS: It’s important to tend to your energy and health. Eat protein every couple of hours to maintain balanced energy. Allow your heart direct you to the heart of all that matters. It’s important to seek more pleasure than usual, to display more romance, and to pay attention to how you’re “seen” in the public. Good manners, a beautiful appearance, a sense of cooperation. All add to a magnetic appeal that all successful teachers possess.
GEMINI: It’s good for you to be somewhat in seclusion, hibernation, a state of privacy, behind closed doors, expressing your affection quietly, reading mysteries, seeking to understand codes and secrets. It is a time of endings, a time of change. Sadness and wistfulness, longings, loneliness and aloneness could be felt. One ponders the past. It is also a time of great music and art and a time for you to be creative.
CANCER: You seek harmonious friendships and relationships that are social, group-oriented, meeting with frequency. Sharing your interests with others makes you happy and less isolated. You sense we are in a time frame when a great cycle has come to a close. You call others to have a depth and intimacy, Right Relations and Goodwill. You know we will need these to create the future.
LEO: People recognize your charm and your ability to assume leadership. Every ability and gift you possess is coming forth in your work place. Make lists of your professional goals. Ambition is good. You will need to balance work responsibilities with home and family needs. Group socializing is good for you at this time. Groups expand your ability to think, gather and share ideas and information. Something or someone “turns your head.”
VIRGO: Routine is not for you at this time. Instead you’re attracted to things exotic, far away, foreign, colorful and unique. These bring forth your spirit. You express yourself better with the unusual. It’s good to travel now. Perhaps to the Wesak Valley. Whatever you discuss, whatever information you bring forth, people listen. Look for and enjoy all things artistic. You recognize their value.
LIBRA: Finances, resources and considering what’s of value in your life are on your mind. You learn about values and resources from close friends and partners. Something very deep and intimate is healing a wound within you. From the care and constancy of another you are beginning to understand love. Finding harmony through intimacy you’re more able to share more your spiritual self. This depth of feeling and realization is unexpected.
SCORPIO: Allow others to give you special attention. Although uncomfortable for you, it’s wise to recognize that others love you. Here’s a statement of gratitude, a response to praise that everyone learns to say at the Findhorn Community – “I’m so glad you noticed.” Say this when you’re given praise and recognition. Watch as people laugh in response. You will laugh, too. It’s so truthful to say this. Tell yourself you can adapt more and more.
SAGITTARIUS: Here’s the Wesak challenge for you directly from the Buddha. To establish harmony at work with all co-workers, creating Right Relations that have integrity and truth. To have social activities centered around work. To associate happiness and pleasure with work. To help others create a cooperative spirit. Your deepest & highest level of success comes when you use your talents to create balance and harmony in all endeavors. And when you appreciate, recognize and praise others. Without hesitation. Always.
CAPRICORN: This is a greatly expressive time for you. What you can and perhaps are already expressing is love coupled with playfulness and a little drama. Drama is good if it’s done well with humor. You’re capable of expressing more love and appreciation to close relationships and with children. When you love more, you attract more (love and everything else). You stand in the light of this love. It makes you beautiful. It’s actually fun!
AQUARIUS: Something important is occurring with your home. Perhaps you’re moving or simply staying home more, unable to leave for it’s most comfortable and safe there. You’re concerned with the art and aesthetics of home, the amount of space you have, if the atmosphere is peaceful and stable, kind and loving. Some Aquarians may build a dwelling outside their homes – under a tree, a fire pit alongside, seeking to be in-tune with nature, able to see the stars at night.
PISCES: Many people think Pisces are always a bit dreamy. But actually Pisces has another side. It’s very analytical and mathematical. Very potent with power and purpose. Very intelligent and filled with thoughts and plans that can save the world. Pisces finds value in the exchange of ideas, especially if they contain humor, wit, things literary, theatrical and artistic and especially if the art of diplomacy is apparent. It’s important to talk truthfully with siblings. They will understand.
