The ‘Sprouting Pink Moon’ is near perigee (closest to in her orbit to Earth) bringing high tides, & revelations from the cosmic heights.

The Sun, which reached his Spring place at the Equinox, has been waiting for its reflector to arrive at this moment. They stand together tonight around 7:20 pm CDT, holding open the gate of the horizon.

This Easter alignment –Sun in Pisces, Moon in Virgo, is the key that unlocks the Grail Castle, opening the way to the Resurrection.

POD (Poem Of the Day)

~The Shining Ones laughed
Slapping each other on the back:
“Have you forgotten so soon
What you learned in night school?
Go back to the drawing board
Open the blueprint etched in the dome of your head
And writ large in the Starry script
Read the thoughts shining in your heart.”
I looked & I saw…
The Sun & Moon
Together on my horizon
Resurrecting the light

Greetings friends – The Central Regional Council welcomes you to a Zoom Study Group Meeting on the Karma of Epidemics 

April 8th 2020, 7:15 pm CST 

“Imagine a people which was composed entirely of liars, the astral plane would be populated solely by the corresponding demons and these demons would be able to express themselves in a constitutional tendency to epidemics. Thus there is a certain species of bacilli who are the carriers of infectious diseases; these beings are the progeny of the lies told by human beings; they are nothing else than physically embodied demons generated by lies.” (GA 99 – L.6)

Please familarize yourself with the lecture if possible to contrbute to the discussion.

May Hope Spring Eternal –

The CRC – Marianne Fieber, Alberto Loya, Hazel Archer-Ginsberg, David Howerton, Lisa Dalton

When out of world-wide spaces
The sun speaks to the human mind,
And gladness from the depths of soul
Becomes, in seeing, one with light,
Then rising from the sheath of self,
Thoughts soar to distances of space
And dimly bind
The human being to the spirit’s life.
~Rudolf Steiner, Calendar of the Soul – Spring Verse

  1. Hazel, you wrote:

    “This Easter alignment –Sun in Pisces, Moon in Virgo, is the key that unlocks the Grail Castle, opening the way to the Resurrection.”

    How important it is to say that. Most people think the Sun passes into Aries at the first point of the Vernal Equinox, c. 19/21 March. And yet, we know time and again how Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul verses do accompany a more precise pathway of Sun through the signs of the Zodiac. For example, the Sun is in the sign of Pisces from 9 March to 13 April, before it enters Aries on the 14th.

    As well, we know of the Piscean Initiate, who his own cousin John, an initiate of Aquarius, knew he could not even fasten the sandle of, and yet declares in chapter 1 of the Gospel of John, as Jesus approaches for the baptism , was “The Lamb of God” who takes away the sin of the world. And yet, John admits that he did not know it until just that moment. Then, the next day, after the baptism, his cousin walks by again, and John, standing with two of his disciples, says: “Behold the Lamb of God”. It was only then that they began to take notice.

    29 The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He on behalf of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’ 31 I did not recognize Him, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I came baptizing in water.” 32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”

    Jesus’ Public Ministry, First Converts
    35 Again the next day John was standing with two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus turned and saw them following, and *said to them, “What do you seek?” They said to Him, “Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are You staying?” 39 He *said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

    So, it is could to review how it started when we consider how it came to an end; a glorious end no less. One that continues on and on, no less.

  2. Good day,
    Is there a format for posting questions and thoughts to contemplate prior to the study group?

      1. Thank you I will ask to join the fb group …..thank you and I look forward to our sharing in the study group.
