Meditation at the Full Moon
The time of the full moon is a period when spiritual energies are uniquely available,
facilitating a closer rapport between humanity and the Hierarchy.
Energies of light and love and the will-to-good are always available to those who can contact them in meditation. But in all aspects of our planetary life there are cycles in the ebb and flow of spiritual energies with which groups, as well as individuals, can consciously cooperate. One of the major energy cycles coincides with the phases of the moon, reaching its peak, its high tide, at the time of the full moon. This is a time, therefore, when the invocation and radiation of energy through group meditation can be uniquely effective.
The moon itself has no influence on the work; but the fully-lighted orb of the moon indicates a free and unimpeded alignment between our planet and the sun, the solar centre, the energy source for all life on Earth. At such times we can make a definite approach to God, the Creator, the centre of life and intelligence.
The twelve full moons in a year form twelve Spiritual Festivals. Each is uniquely conditioned by the combination of astrological energies flowing through the cosmos. While astrology is not the basis of the full moon meditation work, it is helpful to be aware of the spiritual qualities, opportunities and challenges brought to human consciousness by the subtle influences of stars and planets during each Festival.
Three Spiritual Festivals
Of all the full moons of the year there are three which are of greatest spiritual importance, concentrated in three consecutive months and leading, therefore, to a prolonged annual spiritual effort which will affect the remainder of the year:
The Festival of Easter - the full moon of Aries.
The Wesak Festival - the full moon of Taurus.
The Festival of Goodwill - the full moon of Gemini.
