Celestial Events – Full Moon – June 2, 2015

 

Greetings Star Stuff –

Tonight – June 2, 2015 – Watch for the Full Moon to group up with the planet Saturn and star Antares in the eastern sky at dusk.

As our Earth turns underneath the heavens tonight, look for this group to move westward across the nighttime sky.

The celestial threesome will climb highest aroundmidnight, and will sit low in the west at dawn, June 3.

In North America, we commonly call the June Full Moon the Strawberry or Honey Moon.

The Sun and Moon are opposite each other, Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius.

Mercury Rules Gemini, and it is currently Retrograde until June 11th.

Jupiter, Neptune, and Uranus are also key players.

Jupiter is in a configuration with this Full Moon and it also rules Sagittarius.

Unlike Mercury, it is moving forward. This is a time to embrace the “big picture” of things,

as Jupiter, the benevolent King, is expansive.  By opening ourselves up to a broader perspective and by connecting the dots,  we can influence the changes that we need to make in how we think and learn.

Jupiter in Leo is about exploring, experiencing, and expanding through our self-expression.

Uranus is also influencing Jupiter with supportive energy, which can help provide insights as well as as expose us to new, unconventional, or revolutionary ideas and perspectives.

Combined with retrograde Mercury, this suggests recalibrating our mind through a new awareness of ourselves.

Saturn is also in Sagittarius in retrograde motion, which is a strong indicator of restructuring our personal beliefs and philosophies.

Festival – Whitsun

Many are called, few are chosen…

Dear Sisters & Brothers –

As seekers on the path, have you ever felt utterly alone, overwhelmed, or even a bit lost?

Perhaps when you 1st began to know anthroposophy?

Steiner speaks of this in ‘How to Know Higher Worlds’ & in the 5th Gospel.

We have an opportunity on Whitsun to recognize & acknowledge the isolation that can come from our striving, a mirroring of the experience of the apostles those 10 days between Ascension & Whitsun.

That uncomfortable feeling when waiting feels like wrestling.

During our time together, we will work with the Whitsun imagination to creatively explore how we may engage in the lifting out of the ‘Me’ into the ‘We’, out of opinion into wisdom; warming the I, to open the heart, in support of healthy community.

We will endeavor to strengthen our individual soul forces to collectively open the portal into the Spirit worlds.

 

As Steiner’s Whitsun verse states:

“This portal’s key the Soul may fashion

If she herself grow strong within the strife”

 

A Festival of United Soul-Endeavor

2pm – 4pm Whitsun-day May 24th 2015

 

$10 for supplies + Snacks to Share Encouraged.

“May our feeling penetrate

To the center of our hearts –

And seek, in love, to unite with those who share our goals

And with the spirits who look down benevolently

on our hearts earnest strivings

Sending us strength from realms of light

to illuminate our love.”

 ~Steiner’s Verse for America

A Festival of the Higher Self

Dear friends –

The Ascension picture tells us that the deed of Golgotha was fulfilled for the physical & etheric body in the universal human sense.

Whitsun tells us that each single human being must make this deed bear fruit by willing our thinking to rise up to meet the Spirit of Wisdom – A challenge to strive towards spiritual knowledge –

A challenge to stay awake during the out-breath –

So that the ‘tongues of fire’ don’t get replaced with cold electric light.

 

Whitsun Sunday 2pm – 4pm May 24th  2015

A Festival of United Soul-Endeavor

 

We Gather in the Upper Room: Tone of the Day by Hazel Archer Ginsberg

How can I place them in right relationship within the social realm?

How can I hone them to strengthen and enhance the world?
