NOTE: Allow yourself the grace of one hour or more to participate in the following Full Moon ritual. Being immersed in the Full Moon energies at the exact time gives the most direct impact. However, if this is not possible for you, there are 12 hours within which time the energies are the most full. The Angels tasked to oversee the full moon periods 'hold the energy field' into which we enter and resonate, with deepest love and reverence.
Rituals of Group Approach to Divinity
IN SERVICE TO HUMANITY
Solar Full Moon rituals are part of the emerging “New World” Religion. It is a privilege and sacred opportunity to consciously participate with the great Lives of a vast inner world order where the whole is seen as One. Through rhythmic cycles of group approach, and invocation and evocation to the high Beings and energies of which we are a part, we are participating in and laying down the framework for the rituals of the new age.
Regardless of what we are ‘doing outwardly' in the world, the discipline of holding an interior Soul focus during these periods, intent upon working with the "living energies and Lives" pouring through the Solar System to the Earth and her Centers, we are participating in a planned spiritual service and group approach to Divinity.
As such, each who is called to participate can make an inner “Soul-imperative” to organize our lives in such a way that we are found participating with the rituals of the life of Sanat Kumara – the Lord of the World in Whose Life we live, move, breathe and have our being –of whom The Christ is a living Disciple - as are all aspiring disciples treading the path of Initiation and Discipleship.

"THE LIGHT OF INITIATION"
"THIS IS THE LIGHT WHICH CLEARS THE WAY TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP,
AND PRODUCES TRANSFIGURATION, THUS REVEALING THE RISING SUN."
The mystery of the Unicorn is the antah-karanic ascent up the mountain top piercing the veils, penetrating into the renewing Life of Light Supernal. The subsequent gradual descent disseminates what we have newly attained into the world bringing a new heightened normalcy. How can we ever be the same? We are initiated into the Light of Life, ever renewing and in-spiring.
"The Goat becomes the Unicorn, and leads to victory"
"The Mystery of the Lion and the Unicorn. This secret is preserved for us in the ancient nursery rhyme about the "lion and the unicorn going up to town," and contains in a peculiar way the secret of initiation and the "going up" of the human being to the portal of admittance into the Hierarchy as well as the "mystic raising" of which Masonry holds the key. This deals with the emergence of the consciousness of the initiate (white and one-pointed) and the defeat of the king of beasts (the personality) leading to the triumph of group and world consciousness, of selflessness and illumination over self-consciousness and selfishness. "
"It gives us the picture of the triumphant initiate, the "unicorn of God," the symbol of the unicorn, with its one horn out-thrust like a single spear upon his brow ...".
"In an ancient astrological treatise which has never yet seen the light of day but which will be some day discovered when the right time has arrived, the relation between the horned animals of the zodiac is thus described:
"The Ram, the Scapegoat and the sacred Goat are Three in One and One in Three. The Ram becomes the second and the second is the third. The Ram that breeds and fertilises all; the Scapegoat, in the wilderness, redeems that all; the sacred Goat that merges in the Unicorn and lifts impaled upon his golden horn the vanquished form—in these the mystery lies hid."
It here becomes apparent that three mysteries are hidden in the three horned signs:
1. The mystery of God the Father - of Creation
2. The mystery of God the Son - of Redemption
3. The mystery of God the Holy Spirit - of Liberation
From Light of the Soul (331/2):
1. Freedom from water is a symbolic way of stating that the astral nature is subjugated and the great waters of illusion can no longer hold the emancipated soul. The energies of the solar plexus no longer dominate.
2. Liberation from the thorny path refers to the path of physical life, and is nowhere more beautifully referred to than by the Christ in His parable of the Sowers, where some of the seed fell among thorns. The explanation is given that the thorns are the cares and troubles of worldly existence which succeed in choking the spiritual life and in veiling the true man for so long. The thorny path must lead to the northern path and that in turn to the Path of Initiation. In one of the old books in the Archives of the Lodge, are found these words:
"Let the seeker after truth escape from drowning and climb the river's bank. Let him turn towards the northern star and on firm ground stand, his face directed towards the light. Then let the star lead."
3. Liberation from the mire refers to that mixed nature of kama-manas, desire and lower mind, which causes the unique problem of humanity. It is a symbolic way also of referring to the great illusion which snares the pilgrim for so long.
When the aspirant can walk in the light, having found the light (the Shekinah) within himself in the Holy of Holies, then the illusion is dissipated. It is of value to the student to trace the analogy between the three parts of Solomon's Temple, and that of the "Temple of the Holy Spirit," the human frame.
The outer court corresponds to those energies and their corresponding organs found below the diaphragm. The Holy Place is the centres and organs in the upper part of the body from the throat to the diaphragm. The Holy of Holies is the head where is the throne of God, the Mercy Seat, and the overshadowing glory.
When these three aspects of freedom have been gained and the man is no longer dominated by the water, the mire or physical plane life, then "the power of ascension" is gained and he can ascend into heaven at will. The Christ or spiritual man can stand upon the mountain of ascension, having passed through the four crises or points of control from the birth to the crucifixion. Thus the "udana" or upward life becomes the controlling factor and the downward life no longer dominates."
"When love and mind and will meet in the person of the Christ ... on the Mount of Transfiguration, they “reveal the secret of the hidden glory”. (EA, 167) This is Venus in Capricorn, this is the Love of God irradiating the Mind, higher Love Presenced in the Mind, this is the Christ Mind.
KEYWORD FOR CAPRICORN:
"Lost am I in light supernal,
yet on that light I turn my back."
(Prepare a Sacred Space: Lighting candles, resinous incense, sounding tones ...
OPENING PRAYER INTENTION
Our group prayer intention is for "True Soul" contact, impression and inspiration. May the redemption of Humanity and all the Kingdoms of nature on Earth be our unified goal.
May our unified group approach to Divinity reach the Heart of the Great Ones. May the Lighted Way of the Soul lead us into greater measures of Reality. May our unified Love and radiant Light serve as a bridge of solar fire to the fire of Love pouring forth from the Heart of the Sun. May the guiding Light and Love of the Coming One "reveal divinity on every hand in every form" leading all to their final victory over death from the lower worlds - to Give All, Love All, and Live the Truth of our Being as has been ordained from the beginning.
SO BE IT
OPENING INVOCATORY PRAYER
“O Hidden Life vibrant in every atom,
O Hidden Light shining in every creature,
O Hidden Love embracing all in Oneness,
Let each who feels One with Thee,
Know He is One with Every Other."
I. OPENING ALIGNMENTS

◊ Now in the presence of the Solar Angel and Angels of Capricorn, we breathe in new Life energy flowing through all the Centers ...
◊ With the next breath of life the energy returns whence it came … completing the divine circulatory flow. ◊ We stand now within the fountain of down-pouring and uprising energies.
THE SOUL IS GROUP CONSCIOUS
◊ Holding the Mind steady in the Light, we sound a silent OM, vibrationally stepping into the radiant energy field of the Group Soul.
See all Souls herein gathered as radiant, luminous spheres of living Love and Light, connected Soul to Soul.
◊ We sound a Silent, OM, strengthening our unified group vibration and the one beating Heart of the Soul Star Group.
◊ With the next "Breath of Life" from on high, we breathe in the Life energy pouring from the Sign of Capricorn ... through “the Heart of the Sun —The Son of Divine Love" and into the Solar System of which we are a part.
… continuing through Shambhala where the will of God is known ..., on through the Kingdom of God (the Spiritual Hierarchy, the 5th Kingdom) where the Love of God is Known and the Christ stands ..., on through Humanity (the 4th Kingdom) that bridges high and low ... and to All here inwardly gathered in sacred ritual ceremony.
Together and As One, we Sound the Sacred Word, OM, confirming our union.
(Veil the First is now seen parting (felt or imagined) betwixt the lower worlds and the higher)

~ We pause to ‘Be with Them’ and 'They with Us' ~
In Cooperation deep, we stand within the magical field of the joyous streams of Light and Love, Strength and purposed Power.
(Veil the second is now sensed parting betwixt the planes of lower and higher Light and Love)
III. INVOCATION of the CHRIST and the MASTERS OF LOVE-WISDOM; LIFTING and PARTING the VEILS - the THIRD
(DNA-II, 426) The objective of the planned precipitation of the “light supernal” is to "bring about illumination and the establishment of order upon the Earth". The giving out of the Great Invocation to humanity was the first step.
"The second step will be the reappearance of the Great Lord, Who will act as the lens through which the light can be focused and adapted to human need.”
The work that lies before the Christ, significantly resounds strong and wide for yet another Age - the Age of Aquarius now unfolding.
Cooperation deep is pledged by all
Who deeply Know and Love Him.
Writ in Hearts aflame with Love,
Fueled from on high by Will and devotion,
A new WORD is heard round lighted Spheres
Longed-for in waiting ~
Spiritual Livingness of Christ in All and All In One,
~ Strengthened in every passing Day, and decade.
INVOCATION TO THE CHRIST AND MASTERS OF LOVE WISDOM
◊ Round the Circle of a Square unseen, stand FOUR and TWO of cosmic proportion.
— Mighty cosmic Sentinels ~
North and South
East and West
Within, Without —
Streaming forth cosmic waves of new Light upon the Earth —
◊ Now coming into sensed awareness — is a magnanimous circle of vibrant luminous light and magnetic power ~ within which stands the Christ. Around the circle stand the Masters of Love-Wisdom, Leaders of Ashrams — potent Centers of living Light and Love — of Life.
With pure intent, all Participating Souls are enjoined, TOGETHER AND AS ONE, to come into vibrational resonance with this SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY (the Kingdom of Souls) — the Masters of Love-Wisdom in Whose Center stands the CHRIST — the Lord of Love and Light and Purposeful Will.
(INVOCATION: Reading the Invocation that follows softly aloud, slowly invoking with feeling the SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY — with heightened sensitivity, solemnity and quietening power).
"WITH SENSES KEEN,
A UNIVERSAL OM IS HEARD LOW, SOUNDING.
POTENTLY PURE, RESOUND,
DISSOLVING MATTER OF MIS-QUALIFIED VIBRATION.
NEW WAVES OF SOUND GIVE WAY TO VEILS NOW LIFTING...
REVEALING TO HEARTS OPENED WIDE,
TO SIGHT OF PURE PERCEPTION ~
"THE STAR of the CHRIST"
"IN REVERENCE DEEP ... IN SILENCE PROFOUND,
STANDS THE GREAT ASSEMBLY.
MASTERS of LOVE, of WISDOM and POWER,
POTENT LEADERS of ASHRAMIC LIFE,
CIRCLE ROUND THE CHRIST IN THE FULLNESS OF LOVE,
RADIATING "WILL TO LIFE" EMANATIONS.
RADIANTLY PURE, THEIR COUNTENANCES ARE,
BRILLIANT IS THEIR LIGHT.
YET STRONGEST OF ALL IS THE FIRE OF LOVE,
BURNING HEARTS ~ DEEP AS SUNS
FLAMING IN THE NIGHT.
IN THE LIVING PRESENCE OF THE LORD OF LOVE,
IN THE COMPANY OF THE GREAT ONES,
WE COME TO KNOW THEM, STRONGEST AND TRUE,
AS SUBTLE POTENT VIBRATIONS.

WE OFFER HIM NOW
THE RADIANCE OF LOVE,
AND THE FULLNESS OF OUR LIFE INTENTION.
(Veil the Third is now sensed parting betwixt the planes wherein the Masters walk and men who see Them not)
IV. THE GREAT CHAIN OF BEING and THE GREAT ASSEMBLY
Standing together "AS ONE" unified Assembly, we now participate in the Great Cosmic descent of energies from on High through the great CHAIN OF BEING - beginning with the great Cosmic Center, the Pleiades—Hub of the great Wheel and the Sisters Seven, ... through the Great Bear conveying the Seven Rays … through the pure star Sirius —Star of Initiation and Sensitivity ... All pouring Their Life energies through the Sign Capricorn … through the Heart of the Sun — the "Son of Divine Love" and the Mother of the World ... through the planetary transmitting agents of Capricorn —Venus and Saturn — transmitting Their energy to our Earth ... through the Lord of the World — Sanat Kumara standing in the Center of the great Council Chamber of Shambhala where the Will of God is Known … to and through the Spiritual Hierarchy — Where the Love of God is Known and “The Christ — Master of All Masters and Teacher alike of Angels and of Men” — Leader of 49 Ashrams under His supervision and Jurisdiction ... onward flowing to and through us as sparks of fiery Essence, and all Participating Souls – Initiates, Disciples and Aspirants in the world of ascent and descent — bridging above and below … flowing upon all and through all on "the ground" of daily living … blessing and uplifting all Kingdoms of Nature (animal, vegetable and mineral).
Great is the Song of Life, Great is the One Life.
O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM
(feel the Great Blessing)
(In the deep solemn Silence, another Veil is now sensed lifting ... )
V. THE FULL MOON MOMENT - before and after
CONTEMPLATING DEEPLY IN THE FULL MOON ENERGIES OF CAPRICORN
(At the Full Moon moment, as Souls we are poised in readiness to meet and receive the Solar energies of CAPRICORN —the Light of Initiation — the Light Supernal — on the Mountain top of Initiation).
"Lost am i in light supernal ... "
... repeat as a mantram ...
In quiescence deep, we stand in the energy of the deepest Silence of the Ashram of the Lord of the World.
In "Soul Silence" we CONTEMPLATE
LOST AM I IN LIGHT SUPERNAL
LOST AM I IN LIGHT SUPERNAL
LOST AM I IN LIGHT SUPERNAL
... releasing all thought …
… in the Being of sacred Silence ...
LOST ARE WE IN LIGHT SUPERNAL
AND ON THAT LIGHT
WE TURN OUR BACK
VI. After the FULL MOON MOMENT - Sounding the GREAT INVOCATION in blessing.
After due absorption of the Supernal Light, when the time is ripe, we Sound the GREAT INVOCATION
Prior to sounding the Great Invocation, we subjectively link with our Soul Group(s) and the untold number of Groups working on behalf of world betterment - and with Participating Souls - inner and outer.
Written Words for the Great Invocation - Click Here (Original and Alternate Version) OR IN SONG:
Together and As One, we sound the GI with the Spiritual Hierarchy—in Whose center stands the Christ, the Coming One.
... extending solarized full moon energies for the blessing of the world, the Soul of Humanity and all the Kingdoms of Nature ...
... imbuing the Heart of Humanity and the world in which we live with the pure energies of Capricorn
(you may hold your hands in blessing allowing the energies contacted to pour through the small centers of your palms, and also through the Heart, Throat and Ajna Centers).
LOST ARE WE IN LIGHT SUPERNAL
AND ON THAT LIGHT
WE TURN OUR BACK
"When the Christ, the Avatar of Love, makes His reappearance then will the
"Sons of men who are now the Sons of God withdraw Their faces from the shining light and radiate that light upon the sons of men who know not yet they are the Sons of God. Then shall the Coming One appear, His footsteps hastened through the valley of the shadow by the One of awful power [THE LORD OF THE WORLD] Who stands upon the mountain top, breathing out love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will.
"Then will the sons of men respond. Then will a newer light shine forth into the dismal, weary vale of earth. Then will new life course through the veins of men, and then will their vision compass all the ways of what may be.
"So peace will come again on earth, but a peace unlike aught known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding, and understanding blossom as goodwill in men." (ROC, 13)
“Down from the mountain top we come, bringing the Light of Life, the Life of Light.
Into the chalice of the form we pour that Light which Life confers, this Life which Light sustains.
We see this golden light transform the darkness into day.
The blue of Life divine pours through the forms, healing and soothing.
Thus is the task performed.
Thus are the people of earth transformed into a Son of God [Suns of God].”
Continue to be immersed in the sacred silence … our minds and hearts open to Intuition and Loving Comprehension ...
Let us Be Renewed on this Day. Every Full Moon period brings new opportunity for the Soul in form.
Be a channel for the anchoring and expression of Solar Fire, now and in the days that follow … enlivening, strengthening, and beautifying the developing Mind of Christ in you, in us, in all. As we do, we fan the flame of the Soul of Humanity.
VII. Concluding today's planetary ritual ceremonial
Register the fruits of Contact. Listen closely to what is flowing into your awareness on this Day … observe what is borne in ANEW in "Heart and Mind" and in the etheric fields during this period.
Some may want to repeat this sacred ritual again within the next twelve hours for continued deepening and wondrous effect.
Preserve the solemnity and inner silence of Capricorn … listen to ‘impressions’ today and in the "distribution" days that follow as new energy, intuitions and awareness 'fall into' the mind, heart and etheric systems (of the body).
Guard this day of Contact. Guard this Day from unwanted currents or distractions, most especially during the next 12 hours. In doing so, we 'hold the field' with the Christ and the Great Ones, and the Angels whose task it is to cooperatively work with the distribution of this energy.
In the three days of distribution that follow, the first day (day 5) will be a further deepening and 'revelation' of that which was received - 'distributing' throughout our 3-fold vehicle. In the two days following this (days 6 and 7), we will give forth that which we have received, extending to our service projects, and all whom we touch, that which is flowing through the Group ‘mind and heart' in word and deed, from 'very Being’.
We shall continue absorbing, distributing and blessing the down-flow, and flow-through of all that Capricorn and Its Rays are gifting the Solar System.
It is at this time that we come down from the Mountain to serve - 'turning our back upon the Light Supernal' to complete the phrase of the Keyword of the Soul: "Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back."
"It is not for us yet to know the date or the hour of the reappearance of the Christ. His coming is dependent upon the appeal (the often voiceless appeal) of all who stand with massed intent; it is dependent also upon the better establishment of right human relations and upon certain work being done at this time by senior Members of the Kingdom of God, the Church Invisible, the spiritual Hierarchy of our planet; it is dependent also upon the steadfastness of the Christ's disciples in the world at this time and His initiate-workers—all working in the many groups, religious, political and economic. To the above must be added what Christians like to call "the inscrutable Will of God," that unrecognised purpose of the Lord of the World, the Ancient of Days (as He is called in The Old Testament) Who "knows His own Mind, radiates the highest quality of love and focuses His Will in His Own high Place within the centre where the Will of God is known." ROC, 13/4
Sounding the sacred WORD, OM, heightens, confirms and seals the new vibrations wrought through us, through the Soul Star Group and all here present - with new Life.
