AND THE GREAT WHEEL TURNS
7 DAY FULL MOON RITUAL
"A GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY"
“SAGITTARIUS — A beam of directed, focused Light”
“In this the point of light becomes the beam, revealing a greater light ahead and illumining the way to the center of the light."
Key Word of the Soul ~
“I see the Goal. I reach that goal and then I see another.” May the words of this final injunction to the disciple carry meaning to the heart and mind.”
“SPACE IS AN ENTITY”
"The entire "vault of heaven" is the phenomenal appearance of that entity."
"The Ancient Wisdom teaches that "space is an entity". It is with the life of this entity and with the forces and energies, the impulses and the rhythms, the cycles and the times and seasons that esoteric astrology deals". (Esoteric Astrology, 7/8)
“The heavens, the constellations, signs and planets mean one thing to the Hierarchy and another thing to the astronomers and still another thing to the astrologers, whilst they are simply bewildering galaxies of light to the average citizen. I feel the need to remind you of this and to point out to you that astronomical facts are only relative as regards the true and factual nature of that about which scientific pronouncement is made; they are declarative of life and potency but not as science and the average man understand them. From the standpoint of esoteric truth, they are simply embodied Lives and the expression of the life, the quality, the purpose and the intent of the Beings Who have brought them into manifestation.” (EA, 257) [Note the Heavenly Man at the top of the page turning the zodiacal wheel to SAGITTARIUS].
“The entire theme of the zodiac can be approached from the angle of light and its unfolding and increasing radiance and of the gradual demonstration in what I have called elsewhere "the glory of the One." The mode of the development of this inner light and of its externalization must remain—from the standpoint of its cosmic effects—one of the secrets of initiation and this for a long time to come. It will, however, not be out of place if I were to give symbolically certain phrases and sentences which will indicate (for each sign) this "growth of light in light," as it is esoterically called, bearing in mind that we are attempting to express conditions connected with the soul whose essential nature is light”.
“This soul-light affects the form as evolution proceeds and produces sequentially the revelation of that form, and of the nature of space-time as well as of the goal.” ... "A study of the above thoughts will reveal the symbolic story of the irradiation of matter, of the growth of the light body within the macrocosm and the microcosm, and finally make clear the purpose of the Logos." (EA, 328/9)
The great Zodiacal Being Who ensouls all twelve constellations is One Life energy, twelve-faceted in nature. Though it is a Being of such stupendous magnitude and far beyond our most heightened comprehension, simply knowing IT is consciously pouring Itself through the Heart of our Sun - “The Son of Divine Love” into our Solar System and all the planets including our Earth and the major spiritual Centers of Earth that includes the Soul of Humanity, is powerfully ‘mind expanding’ and awakening. Every conscious awakening Soul hastens Humanity’s progress and through such expansive realizations and sincere attempts to expand into, understand and embody what ‘one truly is’, the earth and all lives thereon “grow and glow”.
As we move from one Sign to the next, the Light of that Sign creates a new field of focus and activity giving Its unique qualities and specific “gifts”. This becomes increasingly apparent to us, making our work esoterically meaningful as we continue to comprehend, make use of and participate as Souls in Group Approach to Divinity - to the living, giving potencies of Greater Beings than ourselves for the evolutionary sake of all life and lives on earth.

7 DAY Full Moon GROUP RITUAL begins 3 days before and ends 3 days after the Full Moon Day in your time zone: If the Full Moon in your time zone is on a Friday, then Tuesday is your Day One of the 7-Day Group Ritual of Approach to Divinity. If the Full Moon is on a Thursday, then Monday is your Day One.
To access the daily Rituals, scroll down (after the 7 phased moon image). This is a self-disciplined process; simply show up daily to participate in the group ritual meditation and Diamond Soul Practices prepared for us daily. For the Full Moon Group Approaches, there is no need to register with Esoteric Advent to participate.
◊ ◊ ◊
NOTE: If you are new to the 7-Day Full Moon group rituals in “Esoteric Advent”, this is a guided but self-determined process. To participate, come to this website daily, scroll to the bottom beneath the image of the moon phases and click on the appropriate day (for a daily uploaded PDF file).
With practice, the meditations will become deeper, fuller, richer and more potent. Attuning with the energy of the constellation with the Group Soul - the Soul Star Group, is a key element of potency.
The Meditations, Contemplations, and Diamond Soul Practices are greatly enhanced when accompanied by the meditation music of Harold Moses. The “notes” presented here correspond with the constellations and ray energies as esoterically understood (to the best of our current knowledge).
ESOTERIC ADVENT - CHRISTMAS
"Esoteric Advent - Christmas Ritual” is a Sacred Journey through the Mountains of Consciousness that begins on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2. These 4 Sundays preceding Christmas Day include candle lightings and rituals, DAILY Meditations that include “naming and loving” of all registered Participants, Daily group Contemplations, and in-depth SUNDAY MEDITATIONS. This is a magical shared group experience often leading to climactic spiritual breakthroughs for participants as we walk the Lighted Way together with Companions upon The Way walking with us.
◊ The 12 Days of Christmas process then begins on the Day following Christmas Day. These are brief daily alignments and energy imprints of the theme of each Sign of the zodiac - ending on Epiphany, Jan 6 which culminates the entire Esoteric Advent-Christmas journey, and re-entry into the world of daily living bringing our “Good Gifts”. We will have an on-line Webinar at this time to gather the fruits of our Journey.

Sagittarius FULL MOON RITUAL OBSERVANCE
A Path of Approach to the Kingdom of Souls
“Hold to your established links and with your brothers walk. Walk as a group upon the Lighted Way. The chain of Hierarchy firmly stands.” (DNA-II, 627)
Participating in the Solar Full Moon Rituals, we serve as we build a truer Soul Identity at increasingly higher levels of vibrational Reality. Through such Rituals of group approach to Divinity, we come into closer contact with the Ashrams of the Christ and the Spiritual Hierarchy in Whose Center He stands as World Teacher and Savior. As we consciously participate in planetary invocation and evocation with the Great Ones, we are participating and standing with Them in the Great Work of lifting, redeeming and "saving" the life and lives on earth in fulfillment of the Plan of God ~ and thus we serve, preparing the Way.
Every full moon period has three phases: Preparation, Contact/Registration and Distribution. To read more about the Full Moon Ritual Approach, go to the Supplemental Reading tab.
7-DAY GROUP RITUAL
SANCTIFIED LIVING: A GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY IN THE SIGN Sagittarius
In the following daily alignments and meditations, there is much teaching and training value in how the meditations have been written and constructed. Hold these meditations “lightly”; in the final analysis, they are a ‘form’ and as is true of all forms, they can be adapted and essentialized once they are learned and the major elements are retained for the full power of contact and effectiveness. However, there is something to be said for staying with a 'living ritual form' that builds in strength and purpose with group use and practice.
During the meditation alignments, Be Aware of what is happening rather than attempting to make something happen. Following the form whilst simultaneously letting go, will allow for a 'greater flow-through' of higher energies, for genuine Angelic contact and participation, and contact with the Great Ones Who make Their influence felt.

Let us ever offer deepest gratitude to Master DK whose Teachings (through the “blue books”) have served to inspire and move countless aspirants, disciples, initiates, world servers and therefore Humanity, forward and far ahead of where we would have been on our own without the tremendous aid of the Teachings of the Ageless Wisdom as expressed and communicated by Him to and through Alice A. Bailey (His amanuensis) for modern disciples of our times.
Continued gratitude for the Beauty and living power behind the images and works of Nicholas and Helena Roerich. The paintings and verses serve as a conduit for higher energy from the higher subtle worlds. These can be known by all who make themselves conscious chalices for their reception.
Appreciation is also extended to the artists represented in these pages for their inspiring music and images. In the magical combination of sacred text (Truths), sacred light-filled images and soul-inspired music, we enter through a sacred portal and are moved into the inner, subtle worlds of the Soul-Self, into the spiritual Hierarchy where the Masters live, and to the Stars. We gain entry into a living Cathedral of Luminaries - where live the Great Ones Who have walked the planes of earth before, Who are with us spiritually still, and Who shall be with us in full manifestation once again when the ‘time is right’. OM

◊ This sacred work was inspired by “the Master” for the Advent of the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy to walk openly among humanity once again. The body and Soul of Humanity must first be made ready to Prepare the Way. In this regard, no effort is too small or too great to advance the ‘advent of the Soul’ in each and everyone for the full flowering of Humanity and for the upliftment of the world in line with the Plan of God - “we are Gods in the making”.
The Plan of God depends on Humanity becoming a force for “the Good”.
