Moon Spica & Saturn ~> Sept 1st 11

The Moon is with bright star Spica AND Saturn tonight. Cloud cover permitting, we should be able to see all three line up together.  As the wheat sheaf in the constellation of Virgo, Spica star confers honour, fame and bread on the table.  Saturn asks that we take responsibility and make sure that all beings eat as well as we do; while the Moon provides the sensitive caring to do so.

The image is of Diana of Ephesus, whose temple was once considered to be one of the world’s seven wonders.  Her role is the Mother of Earthly abundance – food, drink & joy, and her temple aligned with the rising of Spica.

May all beings everywhere
Plagued by sufferings of body and mind
Obtain an ocean of happiness and joy

By virtue of my merits
May no living creatures suffer,
Commit evil or ever fall ill

May no one be afraid or belittled

With a mind weighed down by depression
May the blind see forms
And the deaf hear sounds

May those whose bodies are worn with toil

Be restored in finding repose
May the naked find clothing
The hungry find food

May the thirsty find water

And delicious drinks
May the poor find wealth
Those weak with sorrow find joy

May the forlorn find hope

Constant happiness and prosperity
May there be timely rains
And bountiful harvests

May all medicines be effective

And wholesome prayers bear fruit
May all who are sick or ill
Quickly be freed from their ailments

Whatever diseases there are in the world
May they never occur again.
May the frightened cease to be afraid
And those bound be freed

May the powerless find power

And may people think of benefitting each other. 

_(<3)_ His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
