7 April 2020 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Tonight dear friends, is the Paschal Full Moon; the first Full Moon after the Spring Equinox – herald to the Easter Sun.
The ‘Sprouting Pink Moon’ is near perigee (closest to in her orbit to Earth) bringing high tides, & revelations from the cosmic heights.
Bella Luna shines in the belly of Virgo, next to bright Arcturus & Spica.
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.
The perfect time to ask the Parsifal question…?

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.

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
