The Black Hills Full Moon Group will meet on September 11, 2011 at our home in Rapid City. We are not able to meet at Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary this time as previously planned. So it will be at our home at 6:00 pm. It will begin with a potluck meal. The directions are at the end of this post. Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary is incredible, and we continue to work closely with Dave to have a group meeting there at some point in the future. In the meantime we strongly urge you to avail yourself of this beautiful and special place before the snow flies. Here is the link to Pathways’ site: http://www.pathwaysspiritualsanctuary.org/
This is the Full Moon of Virgo:
Virgo ~ the Virgin ~ symbolizes the form nature. Soul and body are blended in Virgo, and we’re told they are of great importance to each other: “matter guards, cherishes and nurtures the hidden soul.” (1) Likewise, the divine feminine nurtures the Christ within in the Light of Virgo ~ the Hope of Glory.
It is here in Virgo that the intentional uniting of sprit and form occurs. In creating substance, the Divine seed exists in Virgo. Through our working with the matter aspect, the end result is the Sacred Form ~ ultimately, the manifestation of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
• Virgo also represents the Hidden Light of God.
• Virgo is the guardian of the light of wisdom.
• Virgo is, therefore, the opposite pole of spirit and stands for the relation of these two after they have been brought together ….
• … Virgo “involves the service of the immediately present” or in other words … God immanent evokes reaction from the form side and is thereby served. (2)
Our work is based on the writings of the Tibetan Master Djwal Khul as recorded by Alice Bailey. For more information on the writings of Djwal Khul, The Great Invocation, and the New Group of World Servers see:
Please connect with the group soul this Full Moon no matter where you are physically on the planet. Get together with friends and family. You will be glad that you did. The actual Full Moon is on Monday, September 12, at 3:27 am Mountain Daylight Time. Come on over to our place on Sunday, September 11, or celebrate wherever you are.
It is very important to remember that the Full Moon is a GLOBAL EVENT which affects the entire planet. Let us link up with the thousands of people who are celebrating this Full Moon and affirm that the Grandmothers are speaking. One of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers recently spoke at the Gathering of Eagles in Nambe Pueblo, New Mexico. There were many other Grandmothers there, including our hostess, Grandmother Connie Mirabal. They all reminded us that it is possible to live in Peace. Time to move past separateness and hate. Drown it in the ocean of The Great Mother’s Love. Then it truly will be harvest time for our planet.
There will be many events on September 11, 2011 to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of 9-11. My own personal opinion is that we need to mourn the loss of all life anywhere. While we mourn the loss of approximately 3,000 American lives, let us not forget that in the past ten years over 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed. And significant losses have also occurred in Afghanistan. ALL human life is precious. Let us intend that war will stop. The Grandmothers have decreed it. So Mote it Be. And So It Is.

4105 Woodbine Place
Rapid City, SD
THERE IS NOW ROAD CONSTRUCTION ON CANYON LAKE DRIVE AND IT CANNOT BE ACCESSED FROM JACKSON. From Main Street at the Gap take Jackson Boulevard south to Sheridan Lake Road. Turn right onto Sheridan Lake Road until you get to Canyon Lake Drive. Turn left onto Canyon Lake Drive and go westbound. It will become one way. Keep going until you come to Woodbine Place, which is in the curve, past Forest and then Dale. It is gravel, with a dead-end sign at the entrance. Turn left into Woodbine, and ours is the second house on the right – 4105.
