TURNING THE ZODIACAL WHEEL
7 DAY FULL MOON RITUAL
"A GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY"
“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 Scorpio].
“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)
“In Scorpio, the man who has mastered his lessons in Taurus [Taurus and Scorpio are in relationship as polar opposites] must demonstrate that creativity which will work under the inspiration of aspiration and vision and constructively attempt to express the beauty which all forms intrinsically veil, thus bringing to all, revelation of that underlying purpose which motivates all events and forms.” (EA, 388)
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 which 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 in the living, giving potencies of Greater Beings than ourselves for the evolutionary sake of all life and lives on earth.
“Scorpio—The Light of Day. This is the place where three lights meet—the light of form, the light of the soul, and the light of life. They meet; they blend; they rise.” (EA, 208)
Keynote: After testing, trials and triumph, the Word of the Soul is “Warrior am I and from the Battle I emerge Triumphant.”
SUN ENTERS SCORPIO: October 23, 2018 at 4:24 AM PDT; 12:24 PM GMT
SCORPIO (SOLAR) FULL MOON DAY: PDT (West Coast) Wednesday, Oct 24 - 9:46 AM ; EDT (East Coast) 12:46 PM; 4:46 PM GMT, 5:46 BST
To know the exact Full Moon moment in most major global cities, copy and paste this URL into you browser: https://www.moongiant.com/moonphases/October/2018/
7 DAY RITUAL Process: Begin Sunday, Oct 21 to Saturday, Oct 27 for the Americas and Europe. Participants in the South Pacific, add one calendar day: Begin Monday through to Sunday (Oct 22 - 28). To access the daily Rituals, scroll down (after the 7 phased moon image).
SCORPIO NEW MOON DAY: November 7 at 8:03 AM PST; GMT 4:03 PM
To determine DAY ONE of the 7-Day Ritual Observance in your time zone: Look at a calendar to see what day of the week the Full Moon Day falls, then count back three (3) days - which will be your DAY ONE. For example, if Monday is Full Moon Day in your time zone, then counting back three days would make Friday your Day One; Day 4 is Full Moon Day and Days Five, Six and Seven are the three days of energy Distribution (following Full Moon Day).
◊ ◊ ◊
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).
SCORPIO 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 Ashram 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 Scorpio
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 if the major elements are retained for full power and effectiveness. However, there is something to be said for staying with a 'living ritual form' as it 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 participation and contact with the Great Ones making Their influence felt.

LAST DAY OF REGISTRATION AND DISTRIBUTION of SCORPIO FULL MOON ENERGY
In Service of the Christ and the Great Ones for the Full Flowering of the Soul of Humanity and the Plan
MEDITATION, CONTEMPLATION, REFLECTION
“Scorpio is under the influence or inflowing energy of Sirius. This is the great star of initiation because our Hierarchy (an expression of the second aspect of divinity – Love Wisdom) is under the supervision or spiritual magnetic control of the Hierarchy of Sirius. These are the major controlling influences whereby the cosmic Christ works upon the Christ principle in the solar system, in the planet, in man and in the lower forms of life expression. …" (EA 197)
◊ Standing in the Beauty of the Cosmos and the Earth, let us move into that Space and Place where the Great Breath is Breathing us. OM ◊ Remembering “the Breath is the Life” pouring through all the centers, we breathe in “the breath of Life” from Scorpio and Sirius, pouring through “the Heart of the Sun”, Shambhala, the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Christ to the Soul of Humanity and throughout all Kingdoms. OM
◊ With “intense spiritual aspiration”, reaching high within the Triune Soul-Self, we breathe in pure atoms of Light, Love and Life. Through conscious rhythmic in-breaths and out-breaths, we sound forth the sacred WORD, OM, loosening and discarding atoms of lower vibration, opening the door to purer vibratory atoms from the higher planes of the Soul … OM. On an outbreath, the energies pour through all the Centers (each absorbing what is needed) continuing through the centers in the feet “Blessing the Earth Upon Which We Walk”. ◊ With the next in-breath the energy returns Home whence it came as a great continuous fountain of circulating Scorpio - Sirius life energy. OM
◊ Attune now and welcome the Angels – the Solar Angel and Angel of Scorpio governing the 8th petal, inviting them to guide our inner process in cooperative interplay … sounding a silent OM … and flowing through the Group Soul.
THE SOUL IS GROUP CONSCIOUS
◊ Let us consciously enter the Soul Star … and Be in the FIELD of the greater GROUP of Groups with Christ at the Center. OM
◊ We stand in the Greater Group … Light, Love and Life raying forth from every central Heart, creating a brilliant network of radiant Love and Light. OM
◊ We sense the livingness of the Soul Star Group and all Groups gathered during this auspicious time, as One beating Heart pulsating in resonance with the Measure of the Christ.
◊ Let us now visualize, sense or imagine the life, light and love of all the participating Soul Groups in the world and on the inner planes who have been “holding the field" for this 7 Day Planetary Festival in concert with the Lord of the World, the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy - turning towards the field of service “for the sake of humanity” to bless, inspire and promote “the workers and the work” who are bringing in the ‘new world’ for the outworking of the Plan in Triumph.
◊ Upon the pedestal, we turn our faces from the light to the call of a needy world. And thus we stand, thus we serve, thus we build a new world together.
◊ Let us be affirmed in the “joy of participation in the Masters' plans” knowing “all is well that associates you closely with Them.” (TWM, 368/9) OM
~ We Sound the Great Invocation ~
CONTEMPLATION and DIAMOND SOUL PRACTICES - DAY 7
“Three Lights Unite”
The opposite signs in every full moon period (currently Scorpio-Taurus) give their “gifts” one to the other, generating enormous power during the solar full moon period. The deeper source of this power stems from the life energies flowing in from Sirius and the triangle created with the sun in relationship to the Constellations. Conscious disciple/initiates who are aligned with these energies and the great centers of the Planet can invoke and draw upon these energies with which to create and express.
“In Scorpio, the man who has mastered his lessons in Taurus must demonstrate that creativity which will work under the inspiration of aspiration and vision and constructively attempt to express the beauty which all forms intrinsically veil, thus bringing to all, revelation of that underlying purpose which motivates all events and forms.” (EA, 388)
“Energies and forces are pouring upon our solar system and our planetary lives ceaselessly, potently and cyclically. … Scorpio is the great constellation which influences the turning point both in the life of humanity and the life of the individual human being. For the first time in the history of both mankind and disciples, the energy of Sirius … evokes a response.” (EA, 198)
Do you, do we, hear the Soul of Humanity sounding forth? In the midst of pain, sorrow and conflict, the Soul of Humanity is calling forth.
Scorpio is that part of the path where the “Word is made Flesh” - where Christ as the Soul dominates control over form as the Triumphant Disciple.
◊ As triumphant Disciples participating for the betterment of humanity, let us tune into the Soul of Humanity.
Let us see, visualize or imagine Humanity in the Light of Day—the Light of form, the Light of the Soul and the Light of Life, meeting, blending, and rising.
◊ What is the Triumph we sense coming? What is the world we want to live in?
For this to come about, what are the tests Humanity must put on trial?
What is the Soul of Humanity calling forth to put on trial for all to see in the Light of a new Day? What tests is the Soul of Humanity raising to our collective awareness to put on trial for eventual triumph?
What is calling to be raised into the light of Day? … to be done?
When we ask such questions, we move out of contributing our life force (our energy) into complaint and what is not working, and toward using our life force constructively building the world we want to live in, in other words - we get to Soul work.
TRIUMPHS: TESTS and TRIALS for Humanity
A Triumph: “Global Climate Thrival” replaces “Global Climate Change” having become the number one issue in the mind of Humanity to solve. We care enough about the earth and environment we live in as if it were ‘our own body’. The attitude we have adopted is “all life and lives matter”. Earth herself is seen as a living entity that we live in loving partnership with.
A Test to put on trial is “global climate change”. Last year the Paris Climate Accord was “put on trial” for all participating nations to commit and get involved. The United States miserably failed that test when refusing to join the world community - sending shock waves around the globe that one of the largest polluters and richest nations in the world would not participate, nor did this decision represent the will of the people. This year Earth is speaking back louder than ever before through more severe weather patterns, and climate scientists see this trend continuing. A Triumph would be for all major Nations to come together and do their part in solving it together. “We can do it, and we Will” because ‘every problem has encoded ‘within’ it a solution’. When we put our collective will to finding the solution, the Sol-ution rises. In that ‘rising’ we receive aid from all quarters - spiritual (inner) - “God Helps Those Who Help Themselves”, and outer - as the needed solutions and actions are put into practice.
A Triumph: Nation states work cooperatively together under the jurisdiction of the UN charter, where Peace is the rule of the day and war is outmoded. What is the test to put on trial? The forces of nationalism and separation that lead to continued weapons development, arms race spending, and physical plane wars between countries, thereby ending the “scourge of war”.
A Triumph: The UN Declaration of Human Rights is lived by all countries for the benefit of all people; all Peoples of the earth are treated with dignity and respect in daily discourse and relationship – Goodwill rules. What is put on trial? Hate speech. Nativism (white supremacy, racism). Contemporary slave trade. Sexual harassment. Selfish insensitivity, greed, the machinations of the ego that justify for itself. ◊ Identify and name what more must be put on trial? A Triumph: Human Rights and the Rights of Nature are upheld by law and are valued and honored by all. We live in freedom and thrive.
A Triumph: All organizations, businesses, non-profits … operate for the greater Good. What is put on trial? Selfish mis-appropriation of earth’s resources for personal and organizational gain and shareholder supremacy vs. all stakeholder well-being. Healthy food, clean water and soil are the rights of people and the earth, not subject to corporate greed and manipulation.
A Triumph: Education, including the higher nature of the soul, is provided for all humanity. What is the test to be put on trial? Are we educating the whole person that includes the “fact of the soul”? Can only the wealthy receive a quality education, or can the best education possible also be made available to all? What will it take for the wealthy to realize that all of humanity will benefit from free (or easily affordable) education. The test to put on trial: should quality education be available to all?
A Triumph: A “New World” religion is in place and actively lived by all Peoples. ◊ In the house of Religion, what must be tested and put on trial? Separative dogma, outmoded doctrines and deadening rituals? ◊ What would represent Triumph? The livingness of rituals and doctrines that inspire and evolve the Soul in us.
A Triumph: A safe living environment in our homes, in our streets, in our churches and spiritual places of worship, in our communities and in our society. Fear is sufficiently overcome such that we can trust our social systems to protect all citizens. A test for trial is an unbiased and true reading of the U.S. Constitution regarding “the right to bear arms”. A test for trial is responsible gun regulation, citizen ownership and governmental oversight.
A Triumph: Clean transparent politics representing the true will of the people for the greater good. A test to put on trial is the corruption of money in politics. A test for trial is special interest groups and individuals having undue influence in politics in the outcome of elections. the Soul What else must be put on trial in the arena of politics?
A Triumph: Music/Art inspires, uplifts, alchemizes and joyously moves Humanity forward evoking the Soul. ◊ What tests and trials must be moved through for this to be actualized?
More Triumphs: In the material and spiritual body of humanity, humanity in its various departments of living and expression, is recognizing and speaking up on behalf of what is being brought into the light of Day for testing, trial and Triumph. ◊ Reflect upon spiritual culture as a way of life.
Once again, do we hear the cry of Humanity calling its Soul or higher expression to sound forth? ◊ Let us say YES whenever and wherever we find it. Make it happen - the word becomes flesh.
All will be seen in the Light of Day. After tests and trials, Humanity as the Group Disciple, will Triumph.
Let us be reminded of the words of Master DK concerning His group and “other groups similarly motivated” who are part of the group of World Servers today. We are all participating in some way, together:
"The work of this group, and of other groups similarly motivated, is to achieve these undertakings together: Together to face the Dweller and triumph; together to arrive at understanding; together to stand before the Presence because the Angel's light reveals "that which the eye has never seen;" together to walk the Path of Revelation; together to serve and together to aid the faltering steps of humanity, the world aspirant; together to stand with your backs to the light because you comprehend the ancient aphorism which states:
"He who faces the light and stands within its radiance is blinded to the issues of the world of men; he passes on the lighted way to the great Centre of Absorption. But he who feels the urge to pass that way, yet loves his brother on the darkened path, revolves upon the pedestal of light and turns the other way.
"He faces towards the dark and then the seven points of light within himself transmit the outward streaming light, and lo! the face of those upon the darkened way receives that light. For them, the way is not so dark. Behind the warriors—twixt the light and dark—blazes the light of Hierarchy." (DNA-I, 13)
◊ LET US NOW TURN THE GAZE OF THE SOUL OVER THE LAST SEVEN DAYS. What gains and Triumphs have you made? Bring them into your awareness to recognize and reinforce them. Celebrate your victories.
◊ For the Sake of the Christ … and for the sake of the Soul of Humanity, what Triumphs are making gains?
Let us give thanks to the Great Ones, and to Life ~ for the opportunities offered leading to the Great Freedom awaiting us all. Let it be our vision to recognize tests as opportunities. Let our hearts open wide to that courage, to that alchemical Love and to that higher Will which cultivates Triumph in every turning, evoking a Soul response until all has been tested and proven pure.
Do you hear what God hears?
Do you hear the Triumphant Soul sounding forth?
We offer deep gratitude to the Master DK whose great heart, vast mind, profound intellect and forward vision has inspired and informed hundreds of thousands of aspirants, disciples, initiates and world servers ~ moving them forward upon the Lighted Way and the Paths of higher living. We are farther ahead than we would otherwise have been without the sacred Teachings of the Ageless Wisdom as given in their present form (communicated to and through His amanuensis, Alice A. Bailey). This body of service shall continue to awaken, inspire and unfold Souls yet to come in the centuries ahead as we move forward into the Aquarian age - for the salvage of the world and the augmentation and celebration of the new Humanity rising.
Communicating these “Teachings” to present Day aspirants, disciples and initiates enlightens the mind, integrates the entire instrument, and opens the higher heart ~ bringing us forward upon the Way for our next steps and Joy in daily living. Thus do we build a new world spiritual culture.
Appreciation is also extended to the artists represented in these pages for their inspiring music and images. In the magical combination of sacred Truths (sacred text), sacred light-filled images and soul-inspiring music, we enter through the portal of the sacred, we move into the inner worlds of the One Self, the Angelic Lives that embody them, the Stars and planets ever beaming in upon us, and we gain entry into the Field energies where live the Luminaries of our times - the Great Ones Who have achieved liberation, walked the planes of earth before our time and Who are with us still.
