Ashtara Light Centre (ALC)
A Light Centre for esoteric study, meditation and prayer
Creating a nurturing environment for a progressive spiritual community of like-minded souls dedicated to truth, self-awareness and the embodiment of higher consciousness and divine love is part of ALC’s purpose. Sharing formerly hidden ancient ‘mystery school’ teachings is another. The teachings, when applied and embodied, enable students to experience states of being where joy, fulfillment, harmony and peace govern their inner world. During this time of unprecedented global transition and change internal balance is needed more so than ever before. Have we not had enough of the “holy” wars fought over “right” answers?
Ashtara offers herself as a teacher, catalyst, spiritual guide and mentor providing classes, workshops, retreats and counselling.
Following are the Tarot and Numerological connections to ALC:
Tarot symbolism: The Hermit
A symbol of ancient wisdom and knowledge: Soul Mastery is the Hermit’s aim.
In the Tarot card, the Hermit, standing on a high mountaintop of spiritual attainment holds a light, willingly guiding those who choose to follow. The Hermit learned, through many life’s lessons, to move beyond judgement, fear and other dense emotions. Divine Love was, and is, his guiding Light. The spiritual journey requires spending long periods in relative solitude. Learning to discard unnecessary elements the Hermit persists on his journey to the light, developing many practical tools and techniques along the way.
The Hermit knows that in our bodies we carry the serpent flame of kundalini, a portion of the One Source’s fire. We are always part of the Divine Creator.
Astrological correspondence: The Sun (our greatest light) and Virgo (the desire for purification and perfection).
Soul Number: 22/4:
A master builder: Soul’s aim – to leave the world a tangibly better place. Mental balance is needed when expressing ideals in practical ways. Those who carry this master number have higher goals than most. It’s important, and necessary, for them to keep their feet anchored on the ground to allow their thoughts to expand.
Path of Destiny Number: 36/9
ALC has a charitable mission with soul mastery as the goal. Our family of light members strive to live an ideal life and inspire others to do the same. The desire to make the world a better place through philosophy, philanthropy and higher consciousness is the guiding force. Knowing that evolution occurs over long cycles of time we choose to learn about these cosmic cycles. Learning not to cling to old associations that pull energy downwards we decide to move on. We cannot be limited in our quest. The broad philosophies must touch, enrich and enlighten the lives of others. Sincere forgiveness brings temperance to challenging situations.
Life Lesson for ALC: 4/2/2016 – when reduced to single digits =15/6
Number six is the love and domestic vibration and is about developing responsibility for family and community. A sense of balance and harmony must be acquired so injustices can be equalized. Compassion is needed along with the deep spiritual understanding behind life’s creations. Loving service can then be given to those who seek spiritual comfort and soul nourishment.
Astrological correspondence: Venus (love) and Capricorn (self-discipline and responsibility).

The Great Invocation
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds
Let light descend on Earth.
From the point of love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts
May Christ return to Earth
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of humans-
The purpose the Masters know and serve
From the centre of humanity
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
