From the point of view of the spiritual Hierarchy, Wesak is a particular alignment of all that is powerful and spiritually evolutionary within the life forms of Earth. These potent forces emanate from and are focused through:
- Shamballa: the center of pure Will, the cosmic insistence of Awareness-nondual Interdependence,
- the Buddha representing the purpose of all life forms on Earth to perfectly express radiant dynamic peace through limitless pervasive awareness,
- and the Christ: the head of Hierarchy, all masters, disciples, initiates, and people of goodness who are expressing innate radiance, peaceful celebratory equanimity, and creative wise awareness to varying measures.
Some of the world aspirants and meditators are preparing for Wesak, the full moon in Taurus. This will be according to the astronomical location of the planets. Others celebrated Wesak with the last full moon. My experience last moon was not a Wesak experience but was an impromptu experience with Christ energy and presence. I’ll be honoring Wesak this upcoming full moon.
Wesak is analogous to an in-breath for the spiritual forces on Earth. Our collective alignment creates a wind-pipe, of sorts, formed by those who will receive the annual cosmic inflow. They will, like a set of lungs, meditatively anchor the life essence and infusion of purpose deep within the body of human consciousness (Taurus is an earth element and fixed cross sign. Both energetically anchor and ground.) Then, one moon later in Gemini, those who have been the vessel of this cosmic infusion will release it like an exhale. When I lead meditations for Gemini, we focus on the “winds of change” as this release.
In order to prepare for Wesak, I thought it of value to create some posts from Esoteric Astrology by the Master DK through Alice Bailey.
Taurus: excerpts from Esoteric Astrology by Master DK and Alice Bailey
“We come to the sign which is (also) called “the sign of the major life incentive,” because Taurus is the symbol of desire in all its phases. Whether the subjective man is impelled by desire, or the disciple is driven forth upon the path of return by the urge of aspiration, or whether the initiate is controlled by the will to cooperate with the Plan, he is, nevertheless, being responsive to the most potent manifestation of a little known and understood aspect of divinity, to which we give the inadequate name of the Will of God.
Will, power, desire, aspiration, ambition, motive, purpose, impulse, incentive, plan – all these are words which attempt to express one of the major underlying attributes and fundamental causes (man scarcely knows which) of manifestation, of the evolutionary processes and of the will-to-be or the will-to-live. The great triplicity of desire – aspiration – direction (will) are only three words which endeavor to describe the progress and bias of man the personality, man the soul, and man the channel for spirit or life. All three point inadequately to the cause of the threefold expression which underlies all events, all progress and all happenings in time and space.” pg. 371
“It might be here pointed out that just as the Aquarian Age is coming into manifestation for our planet as a whole, bringing in its wake universal awareness and the new modes of expressing world synthesis, human interests and the world religion, so humanity, the world disciple, is beginning to come under the influence of Taurus. It is this influence which will bring about at this time the reversal of the wheel of life for those in the human family who are ready (and their numbers are now very great). This is happening and the results are inevitable and cannot be evaded. The great question is: Will this Taurian influence, increased as it is by the incoming Shamballa forces, produce the floodlight of illumination of which Taurus is the custodian, or will it simply foment desire, increase selfishness and bring humanity to the “fiery heights of self-interest” instead of to the mountain of vision and initiation?
This is the situation which confronts the Knowers of the race in their various grades of knowledge and illumination at this time. Neither of these influences – the Taurian or the Aquarian – can be avoided. … Taurus forges the instruments of constructive living or of destruction; it forges the chains which bind or creates the key which unlocks the mystery of life; it is this forging process, with its consequent clamor, which is going on at this time in a most potent manner. …
The Taurian influence must now be regarded as being of exceeding potency today, particularly from the angle of the subjective spiritual values; it is Taurus which is the ruler and the guiding influence of that which is occurring everywhere.
I would like here to call your attention to the fact that this sign is a synthetic sign in the sense that it brings expression of an inner urge of some definite nature upon the physical plane. This it does, because its basic quality demonstrates as desire in the mass of men and as will or directed purpose in the disciple or the initiate. It manifests as stubbornness in the average man (and this is literally willful adherence to personality aims) or as intelligently expressed will – actuated by the impulse of love – in the advanced man. This connotes adherence to soul purpose. People who are Taurians naturally and by natal inclination would do well to consider this statement and thus test all their major determining activities by the question: Is my present attitude, my work or intention actuated by personality desire or am I working and planning directly under soul urge and incentive? This should give the keynote of all Taurian problems. The entire secret of divine purpose and planning is hidden in this sign, owing fundamentally to the relation of the Pleiades to the constellation, the Great Bear, and to our solar system. This constitutes one of the most important triangles in our entire cosmic series of relationships and this importance is also enhanced by the fact that the “eye of the Bull” is the eye of revelation. The underlying goal of the evolutionary process – “the onward rush of the Bull of God,” as it is esoterically called – reveals steadily and without cessation the stupendous and sublime plan of Deity. This is the subject which light reveals.” pg. 374-6
