Annunciation – Three Spring Festivals – the Soul – Preparation

Annunciation – Three Spring Festivals – the Soul – Preparation

Annunciation (meaning & symbolism); Three Spring Festivals; the Soul; Preparation. Sun in Aries (new thoughts) trine Saturn (the Teacher’s teachings) today – Saturn in Sag – in our college learning together.
Wednesday, March 25, 2015 – Mercury’s Day – information gathered/dispersed, pondered upon, integrated. Mercury is the Soul ruler of Aries, the voice of the Intuition. Today is a day of information, of Ray 4 – harmony achieved through conflict & chaos. We observe this, as we stand within the Cross of Intention, working both vertically & horizontally…

It is important (in our Lenten preparation for the Resurrection/Aries Festival) to begin to understand the Purpose of the Three Spring Festivals…
& the Three Spiritual Forces coming forth at these solar festivals – our understanding allows us to work with the Forces, absorbing & then radiating them out into the world of humanity in need. This is our Service Work. The Three Spring Festivals set the template, the Plan for the other nine solar & new moon festivals.

Annunciation – Announcement of new life gestating, birthed as the New Light at Winter Solstice – metaphors, symbols, etc.

Symbolism – the Soul (new life & life & direction) awaiting recognition by the personality (physical body, emotions, lower mind).

The Annunciation of Angel Gabriel to Mary that she would bear a holy child (the Son – Ray 2, new consciousness) was/is announcement to Mary/humanity the fact of the Soul awaiting recognition by the personality (when the personality is strong & prepared enough through experiences on the Mutable Cross – the Cross of experiences in/of form & matter – to receive the Light & Direction of the Soul).

Today is the Feast Day of the Annunciation of Mary.
When the Archangel Gabriel announced to Mary (reminded her of her contract prior to her physical life birth) that it was the time for her gestation/pregnancy, which would bring forth the new life (Jesus, a Master who would be overshadowed at age 30 by the Christ, the Avatar & Archangel from Sirius), at winter solstice. Gabriel told Mary to name her son Yeshua (Jesus), meaning, “YHWH is salvation”.

Many Christians observe the Feast of the Annunciation on 25 March, nine full months before Christmas (Winter Solstice, the new light of the world appears), ceremonial birthday of Jesus. The date of the Annunciation also marks the New Year in many places. In England it is called Lady Day. Both the Roman and Orthodox Catholic Churches state the Annunciation took place at Nazareth. The Annunciation has been inspiration in Christian & Marian art in the Catholic Church, particularly during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Symbolism
The Annunciation symbolizes for all of humanity the fact of the Soul (Son, Holy Child), as it awaits recognition by the personality. The Soul is the intermediary between Matter (Mother) & Spirit (Father). The holy child (Jesus, later the Christ) is the result of the marriage between Matter & Spirit. Our personality resides wholly in matter. It needs upliftment to the Light of the Soul to be able to recognize the Spirit (the Father) within. We, as Spirits, reside in Matter/the Mother. The Soul/the Son/Holy Child is our consciousness of this reality. The tension & the marriage between Spirit & Matter allows for the Soul (holy child within us) to come forth. This is the symbolism of the Annunciation – a holy revelation/feast. So now we know.

In the Bible, the Annunciation is narrated in Luke 1:26-38:
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

38: And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Luke 1:32, 35 reads:
He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High … The power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. (from Risa – Son/Holy Child = Ray2 Love/Wisdom = consciousness coming forth from marriage of Father & Mother creating the Soul, code word for “son.”)

Dead Sea Scrolls manuscript 4Q246 reads:
“…. He shall be great upon the earth. O king, all people shall make peace, and all shall serve him. He shall be called the son of the Great God, and by his name shall he be hailed as the Son of God, and they shall call him Son of the Most High.” (Dead Sea scrolls manuscript Q4Q246)

In Eastern Christianity Mary is referred to as Theotokos (Θεοτόκος =”God-bearer”). The traditional Troparion (hymn for the day) of the Annunciation which goes back to Saint Athanasius of Alexandria is:
“Today is the beginning of our salvation,
And the revelation of the eternal mystery!
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
“Rejoice, O Full of Grace, the Lord is with you!”

The Annunciation is described in the Qur’an, in Sura (sutra/thread of a hymn) 003:045 (Al-i-Imran – The Family of Imran) verses 45-51 (Yusuf Ali translation):

45 Behold! the Angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah;”

And Sura Template: Cite Qur’an (Maryam – Mary) verses 16-26 also refers to it. Muslim tradition holds that the Annunciation took place during the month of Ramadan. In the Qur’an “behold an angel of the Lord has spoken. ” Mary will bear the true Son of God” “He will be called Jesus Christ.” “His domain is over the entire Earth. Joy to you, behold His Holy name.”

We place these teachings in our hearts, in the heart of our Group Work. From our Spiritual Astrological Theology classes within our College Ashram.

The Astrology of the Annunciation
The Annunciation occurs in Aries.
The Soul ruler of Aries is Mercury.

Mary is the Virgin, Virgo. The ruler of Virgo is Mercury (Jupiter is the spiritual ruler).

Aries Keynote on the Soul level –
“I come forth & from the plane of mind (intuition) I rule (offer information),” says Mercury, Ray 4 – seeking/showing forth the path to harmony through what seems to be conflicting chaos.

From the “chaos” comes forth the new Life. Aries is Ray 1 & 7 – Ray 1 is the Will of the Father. When anchored on Earth, Ray 1 becomes Ray 7 – the Will of the Father to anchor the Plan on Earth – Ray 7 – thus the new life, new rhythms come forth in form & matter (through the Mother Principles). Jupiter is the result – greater Love/Wisdom (Ray 2). We think on these things. The intuition understands.

Tasks of the NGWS & the Three upcoming Spring Festivals
Preparation Through Knowledge –
The Three Spring Festival & their Three Forces =
Restoration, Enlightenment & Reconstruction coming into the Earth. During Aries, Taurus & Gemini.

Helping us build/create the New Materialism (Communities of Sharing). They help us create Constructive Living, the Art of Living for all of humanity.

The NGWS stand between these Forces & humanity. Our task is to gather these forces into our groups & radiate them to humanity at the three festivals.

They (Forces & Spirit of Resurrection) also, as they unfold during the Three Spring Festivals (Aries, Taurus, Gemini), bring forth the new world, new Era Community, new culture & civilization, for humanity. The NGWS is to participate fully in these three festivals & help the Forces reorient humanity, uplift humanity, re-educate humanity, help humanity re-identify as the Group of World Servers.

In Aries, the Forces of Restoration & the Spirit of Resurrection are anchored on Earth. We stand with them in preparation.

Tomorrow I will post the information given to students from the Tibetan on the Three Spring Festivals. Let us be prepared to take notes, understand deeply the process of what is coming forth. Let us participate in preparing together. As we gather knowledge, let it turn into the Wisdom needed to be part of the NGWS. Love, Risa

Working with the NGWS (esoteric inner group) at the UN – (last night in the TV show “Forever”, the theme of the show was the ancient slave trade, the ships carrying the slaves from Africa to the east coast of America).

March 25
International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade

2015 Theme: Women and Slavery
Recognizing how little is known about the 400-year-long transatlantic slave trade and its lasting consequences, March 25 has been designated as an annual day of remembrance of the trade and its victims. The intention is to raise awareness among future generations of the causes, consequences and lessons of the transatlantic slave trade and to communicate the dangers of racism and prejudice.

M-flares, Mars, Antares before dawn, Dahl Bhat (recipe)

M-flares, Mars, Antares before dawn, Dahl Bhat (recipe)

March 11, 2015 – At 4:30 am this morning (Wednesday) we had another M-flare (flare from the Sun). Tomorrow morning, before dawn Antares can be seen below Moon/Saturn (golden yellow) in the pre-dawn darkened sky. Antares – Fire Star in the Hall of Light (the heavens – a Hall of Light.

Today (March 11) is Wednesday – its ruler (guardian) is Mercury.
Mercury is Hermes (Egyptian God of Knowledge).
Mercury (with Gemini) builds the Rainbow Bridge of Light.
So the personality can be lifted up to the Soul.
And then directed by the Soul –
An entrance into the Temple of Knowledge that becomes Wisdom.

Even though today is Mercury’s regular guardianship Day, due to the present transits (planetary influences in the sky falling to earth affecting all the kingdoms) & their potency, Mercury shares the day with Mars & with Antares (a star in Scorpio, heralding the spring equinox (in 9 days). Antares is the star amidst a cluster of metallic (not dust) clouds the color of red. Antares means “like, akin to Mars” due to its saffron-reddish color.

Antares can be seen tonight below Moon & Saturn.
Antares is the bright red star at the heart of Scorpio.
Mars is the personality & Soul ruler of Scorpio.
Thus, Scorpio is relevant today on many levels.
Scorpio – the Call to Discipleship.

In Babylonia, Antares was called Urbat, Lord of the Seed, Creator of Prosperity, the King and god of lightning, the Day-Heaven-bird. The Egyptians worshipped it as the goddess Selkit, heralding the sunrise in her temples at the autumn equinox, and as a symbol of Isis in pyramid ceremonials.

“Antares demands we ‘take a stand’ for our truth against the established conditions of our personal lives and against the established order or authority directing our lives when those conditions and that authority are no longer in our best interest nor supporting or evolutionary freedom.” (The Lunar Planner, Nick Fiorenza

Mars
Mars Today in the Sky (see chart 1st house)
Mars in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries (1st house, 14/15 degrees Aries). Both Mars & Uranus are “rulers” of Aries.
Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn (see 10th house, 15 degrees)

The new archetypes (Uranus/Aires) can expand outward, anchor in the world. Through the Fire Trine (Triangle).
The water of Pisces mixed with the fire trine brings forth the new cycle of Lift itself – Pisces – “the Light that ends forever the darkness of matter.”

Fire Trine (Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn)
Aries (new life springing upward), Leo (individual creativity), Sag (out into the world, expanded by Jupiter, Sag’s ruler (guardian).
Mars, Uranus, Pluto (yesterday Jupiter was also in the mix).
Aries (all things new)
Capricorn (structural transformation of all that we know & live within).
Mars/Uranus square Pluto
Squares bring/call something into manifestation – anchors a new direction/reality.

Dream – I have dreamt about lentils this week.
Here is a lentil recipe = Tibetan/Nepalese

(Dal) Dhal Bhat – (pronounced doll-bought) = what it this?
Dahl is lentils, bhat is rice.
Lentils & Rice – Tibetan/Nepalese recipe.

It has its roots in the Himalayas of Nepal, the food of the Nepalese people. It also has a large influence on mountaineering in the area. On the trek into Everest base camp, “Dal Bhat” is basically the only meal served in the teahouses along the path. It’s a dish of plant-based nutrition which fuels climbers in the most strenuous environment in the world = carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vegetables, vitamins, and spices. It is the most perfectly balanced meal.

Here are 2 recipes –

The Creativity of working within a group produces beauty.

holi fest colorsHoli – Festival of Colors & of Love in India (see website)

Vowels, color & sound (mantrams) call the devas forth.

Devas (Beings of Light) are Angels.

They attempt to assist humanity. More & more they will do so.

The Christ has asked them to come forth.

We read today about The Violet Devas (from the Tibetan)

The Violet Devas

Externalization of the Hierarchy. (page 507)

As the seventh Ray of Organization and of ceremonial work is now coming into prominence and manifestation (the 7th Ray rules/works with, brings in the Aquarian Age), the work of the Master on that Ray is that of synthesizing (bringing together), on the physical plane, all parts of the Plan (for world restoration, the Plan created by Shamballa & directed by Hierarchy, implemented by the New Group of World Servers & people of Goodwill on Earth).

The Master (R) Rakoczi (Rah-cozy) takes the General Plan as it is outlined in the inner Council Chamber (of Shamballa) and approximates it to what’s possible. [508] He might be regarded as the General Manager for the carrying out of the Plans of the executive council of the Christ.

It might be of interest here to point out that when He (the Christ, World Aquarian Teacher) reappears, Whom angels and men await, and Whose work it is to inaugurate the new (Aquarian) Age thus completing the Work He began in Palestine two thousand years ago (Piscean Age), He (Christ) will bring with Him some of the great Angels, as well as certain of the Masters.

The angels have ever (always) been active in Biblical history, and will again enter into the lives of human beings with more power than has lately been the case. The call has gone out for them again to approach humanity, and with their heightened vibration and superior knowledge unite their forces with those of the Christ and His disciples for the helping of the race.

They (the Angels) have much to communicate about color and sound, and the effect of these two forces (color/sound) on the etheric (energy template for form/matter) bodies of humanity, animals and flowers.

When what they have to impart is apprehended by the race (all of humanity), physical ills and sickness will be offset.

The group of Violet Angels or Devas (Sanskrit for “beings of Light”) who work on the four etheric levels (top four subplanes of each plane on the Constitution of Man/Mind Chart) will be especially active. They will work in the four main groups of humanity in incarnation (alive on Earth) at any given time.

Four rays (from the Big Dipper) dominate at any period, with one of the four more potent than the other three. We have this idea symbolized in the four castes in India and we will find also that these four castes are found universally throughout the planet.

These four groups of Angels are a Band of Servers, pledged to the service of the Christ, and their work is to contact humanity, teaching them along certain lines.

a. They will teach humanity to see etherically (subtle energies/colors), and this they will do by heightening human vibration by interaction with their own.

b. They will give instruction in the effect of color in the healing of disease, and particularly the efficiency of violet light in lessening human ills and in curing those physical plane sicknesses which originate in the etheric body. [509]

c. They will demonstrate to the materialistic thinkers of the world the fact that the super-conscious world exists, and that angels and men who are out of incarnation and possess no physical bodies can be contacted and known.

d. They will train human beings in the knowledge of superhuman physics so that weight shall be for them transmuted. Motion will become more rapid, speed will be accompanied by noiselessness and smoothness, and hence fatigue will be eliminated. In the human control of etheric levels lies the overcoming of fatigue and the power to transcend time. Until this prophecy is a fact and recognized as such, the meaning of the above words will remain obscure.

e. They will teach humanity how rightly to nourish the body and to draw from the surrounding ethers the requisite food. Man will concentrate his attention upon the etheric body and the work and health of the physical body will become increasingly automatic.

f. They will also teach human beings as individuals and as a race (all of humanity is One Spiritual Race) to expand their consciousness to include the super-physical (invisible). In the accomplishment of this, the separating web (the veil of the temple) which divides the physical plane from the unseen world will be recognized as a fact in nature by the scientist. Its purpose will be acknowledged. Eventually it will be destroyed, by man discovering how to penetrate it. The date is imminent.

Through the increasing sensitivity of humanity and through the steady thinning of the separating veil, more and more during the coming years will the telepathic faculties of men and their power to respond to inner inspiration be developed and demonstrated.

By the growth of intuitional telepathy and the increasing comprehension of the power of color and sound will the work of the Christ and of the Great Ones be contacted and understood, and the peoples released from the thralldom of the past and enabled to enter into the liberty of the Kingdom of God. [510]

In our Ashram of Prayer working with everyone in prayer around the world.
Here is the Mantram of the New Group of World Servers.
We remain in the Days of Safeguarding the Pisces Light – the light that “saves the world.”

The Mantram of the New Group of World Servers

May the Power of the one Life
Pour through the group of all true servers.
May the Love of the one Soul
Characterize the lives
Of all who seek to aid the Great Ones.
May we fulfill our part in the one Work
Through self-forgetfulness, harmlessness, and right speech.

A strong subjective relation exists between all servers of the Plan. This coherent, integrated group is transmitting spiritual energy throughout all areas of human thought and action to strengthen world unity and right human relationships. Men and women of goodwill link up in thought every day at five o’clock with this world group of servers, using this mantram with dedication and silent, focused attention. (Lucis Trust, NY)

Together in the Ashram…love, Risa
Note – the middle painting is the celebration of Holi – Indian Festival of Colors & of Love – the love between Krishna (the blue boy) & Radha…

Reappearance of the Christ Preparation Meditation

It’s Thursday – Reappearance Meditation – Preparation
Today, following our weekly rhythms is Thursday, Jupiter’s day, the Preparation for the Reappearance of the Christ (Aquarian World Teacher) Meditation. We recite it together in the Ashram…turning toward the Christ (who was also the Piscean World Teacher) in dedication …in an attitude of aspiration, devotion, prayer & fixed intention (in this order). We combine the heart & mind, we are brief & dynamic, we are impelled by the synthesis & sequence of the prayer, Facing the Christ -we stand together quietly under the Light of the Soul & say…

“Forgetting the things which lie behind
I strive toward my highest spiritual possibilities
I dedicate myself anew
To the Service of the Coming One (Christ, the World Aquarian Teacher)
And will do all I can
To prepare humanity’s minds & hearts
For that Event.
I have no other life intention.”
Ohm, Ohm, Ohm.

As we see the world in all its many differentiations and planes of development & its kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human, & the new emerging Kingdom of the Soul), we visualize (from our Ajna [middle of forehead] centers, Center of Direction) Light, Love & Purpose flowing into the world, into the hearts & minds of humanity & especially into places where there is great need.

We concentrate our fixed intention to serve & to radiate Love in all our surroundings. We realize that as we do these things we are blending our personality (little) will with Divine Will. Standing under the Will-to-Good, radiating this Good. And thus the kingdoms & humanity, all that we encounter, are uplifted and transformed. And this is part of the preparation for the Coming of the Aquarian Teacher. We understand all of this in our hearts.

We sound the Ohm 3 times, dedicating our 3-fold personality (physical body, emotional body, lower concrete mind) to the Work of Preparation. We stand together with Intention to Prepare.

Ohm. Ohm. Ohm.

Mars, South Node – in Aries.
Sometimes transits (planets in the sky moving about) occur and their effects happen the day or days afterward. Yesterday, Mars joined South Node in Aries. Every Aries I ever knew seemed to contact me (last night, this morning). People from long ago who I knew & lost contact with were contacting me.

Mars, South Node – Mars is movement. South Node is about the past. Movements, contacts from the past appear. They may be fleeting. However, they appear, making themselves known again. We recognize, respect & greet them in passing. We all play(ed) our part.

Mars is coming up on (connecting energetically with) Uranus square Pluto in the next week, a preliminary to the March 16th Uranus/Pluto. Mars squares Pluto on the 11th, Uranus squares Pluto on the 16th. All week, from now onward, tensions will be building. We may externalize these tensions through abrupt outbursts, anger, misinterpretations, headaches, feelings of anxiety and/or urgency. Aconite Napellis (homeopath) helps us to remain poised & patient. Knowledge helps us immensely too. Knowledge of these things to come. Mantrams help us to remain spiritual poised too. Standing always at the apex of the triangle, the dualities below.

We stand poised, attending to our daily rhythmic Work & studies in the Ashram. We stand in the upper room, as well as in the Ashram’s garden. We see humanity on the other side of the garden gate seeking the Path of Return. We ask during this Pisces solar festival that we, the NGWS, be prepared to assist humanity in discovering their Path of Return. “Pisces – the saviors of the world, the Light that ends forever the darkness of matter.” In preparation together…love, Risa

Dedication – 3rd day of Preparation for Thursday’s Pisces solar festival

Dedication – 3rd day of Preparation for Thursday’s Pisces solar festival

Dedication, confidence & aspiration – Holding our minds steady in the Light.

Wednesday, March 3 2015 – Mercury’s Day
Virgo Moon today w/ Pisces Sun – Tomorrow is the full moon festival.
The Earth tomorrow will be in between the Sun and Moon, the moon’s energy veiled, so that only the Light of Pisces will reach the Earth. Thus the Earth bathed on all sides with the “Light of Pisces, the Light of the World that ends forever the darkness of matter.”

The Earth receives the light of Rays 2 & 6, the Light of Pisces & the Light in the heart of the Sun (Ray 2, Jupiter). The moon also receives the light from Pisces, absorbing it.

Together the Sun & the moon stream down to the Earth the Pisces Light along with Rays 2 (Love/Wisdom) & 6 (vision, dedication, compassion, intention to work under the Plan of God). The Earth & her kingdoms all receive these energies. It depends upon the awareness, development & consciousness of each of us that determines how we receive & use these energies.

The New Group of World Server standing together (imaginatively visualizing), receive these energies & radiate them to humanity. With the seed thought words of Pisces –

“I/we leave the Father’s house & turning back, I/we serve & save.”

The Pisces solar festival is occurring at 15 degrees Pisces.

The New Group of World Servers will be in contact (on inner levels) & in meditation today, tomorrow. Everyone is invited to join in meditation.
To be the “Light of the world for thirsty humanity.”
To recite the seed thought with intention…

The Pisces Seed thought (again),
“I/we leave the Father’s house & turning back I/we save.”

These are the words of the Soul, of the Buddha, of all the Avatars & Teachers. Remaining on Earth until all of humanity is enlightened.

Leaving the “blissful Oneness of the Father’s house” (heaven, Buddic plane, etc.) in order to return again & again to assist humanity in discovering their Path of Return. In order to teach humanity, to educate, direct & uplift humanity, all who are seeking the Path of Return.

Shattering
The Uranus in Aries (1st house) is shattering all of our preconceived concepts. It’s changing our world, unexpectedly.
We are being called to break old habits.
Uranus breaks the crystallizations that have formed in our lives.
The routines where we have fallen asleep.

Adapting
We change our rhythms during Lent. Sometimes it’s painful.
Ultimately it’s good.
We learn to adapt to new rhythms. We learn fluidity.
Especially as we study, learn about, work with the Piscean waters.
Under Neptune – the Christed (Soul) waters.
And with the daily influences from the heavens (stars & planets in movement).

***
The Astrology Today (looking at the chart)
Venus in Aries trine Jupiter in Leo = see 1st & 6th houses
Venus in Aries conjunct Uranus in Aries = see 1st house – both are at 14 degrees Aries.
Venus in Aries (14) square Pluto in Capricorn (15) = see 1st & 11th houses
Sun in Pisces (13) inconjunct Jupiter retro in Leo (14) = see 1st & 6th houses.
Venus is Ray 5, the Ray of Aquarius.
By looking at the chart we learn more through identification & recognition.

The stars & planets tend to the “garden of Earth & its kingdoms.”
Those who know about & study astrology also are able to tend to the “garden of the Earth & its kingdoms.”
