Moon at Aldebaran, Venus/Jupiter conjunction August 18th. 6 weeks to Rosh Hashana


On the morning of the 18th the moon will be conjunct Aldebaran, just after Venus and Jupiter rise in conjunction before the sun. 




The coincidence of these aspects hearkens back to the new moon of early April and we may see an energetic shift akin to the chapter that began then.


This conjunction follows the crop circle from 8/16 featuring 24 diamonds around a circle divided into four within which we find the all-seeing Eye from which all emanates.



This Rosh Hashana we are 24 years from 1991 when the world shifted into a new phase, the Redemption program. There is a half-year left to this phase, culminating at the midpoint of the eclipse sequence in March 2015.


After the Venus Jupiter conjunction we shift into the 777 program, accelerated week by week progress towards the fall equinox and new moon of Trumpets.


Week 1: August 18-25. Tuesday is a high-energy day.

Week 2: August 25-September 1: New moon of Elul. Represents Moses’ ascent to the mountain to receive instruction for the second tablets.We are on borrowed time.

Week 3: September 1-September 8: September 6th is a significant day in some prophetic schema. Gateway.

September 8-15: September 9th is the third and final full moon in the sequence and the last full moon until the 2nd blood moon.

September 15-22: Equinox

September 22-29: Rosh Hashana, Trumpets, New moon. the year 5775 (HaTeshua “the rescue”) begins. Half a year to solar eclipse and eclipse midpoint, end of 24.5 Daniel cycle.


According to tradition, the judgment is delivered on Rosh Hashana. Sealed on Yom Kippur. Submitted to the angels on Hoshana Rabba (7 days after the 2nd blood moon).

Blessings until Yom Kippur: Gmar Tov

Blessing on Hoshana Rabba: Pitka Tava


According to Hasidic tradition, the window is extended until the 8th day of Hannukah, the winter solstice.


Regulus and the Planets 2014-2015


Mercury is the 1st planet out of the 4 to leave Leo for Virgo. And yet due to precession, the fixed star Regulus, the Heart of the Lion, the emblematic Leo energy star, is now at 0 degrees Virgo in the tropical system, so we will now see each of the 4 planets at their own pace move into conjunction with this star.

Mercury will do so at 9:43am tomorrow, bringing the Lion’s Heart into the mind.

The sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd. This year in particular, the 20-25th of each month carries the greatest intensity of the energy that has been building since the 1st. The sun at Regulus is a perennial transit marking the birth of the King.

Venus, still the morning star, reaches Virgo and thus Regulus on September 5th. The first week of September may mark a shift in the energy towards what is to be manifest in the next fall equinox cycle.

Jupiter experiences a lengthy retrograde, and will only reach the Heart of the Lion in August 2015. By then Mars will have cycled through the zodiac and will arrive at this most powerful point in the zodiac as well shortly after, on September 25, 2015.

The biblical year 5775 is a Shmittah year, meaning it is traditional to let the land lie fallow, to forgive debts, and on a deeper level, the world is rebuked and prepared for a new cycle.

The final blood moon is several days later, on September 28, 2015. It seems the planets, Regulus and the moon are telling us that the Lion will roar gloriously at the conclusion of this journey, but we are invited to do so each day little by little, to prepare for that time when we can walk in our true glory, when As Above So Below will be actualized and harmony will reign on heaven and earth.

And so it begins: The full moon of August/Tu B’Av & the Influx of Light from 4 Planets in Leo AUG 7-15 / AV 11-19

Look at this chart! Monday night August 11th, the 15th of Av, the holiest day of the Jewish year (on an inner level). Full moon snug between Chiron and Neptune in Pisces, radiating Healing. Venus & Jupiter paired near Mercury & the Sun, all in Leo, the origination and destiny/eventuality of Aquarius in the celestial sphere.

Saturn and Mars still look on with authority & power from Scorpio, and yes more secrets stand to be revealed, but at this point, the light is sufficient to tip the scales and embark on this path, wholeheartedly.




Thursday night August 7th / early morning August 8th: the full moon and Pluto are conjunct in Capricorn at 11 degrees. The moon is emboldened and impregnated with the Pheonix energy of Pluto before reaching exact opposition with the sun on Sunday.


Friday morning August 8th: Mercury and the sun are conjunct in Leo at 16 degrees. This is the superior conjunction of Mercury and the sun, when the sun stand directly between earth and Mercury, the three forming an exact line. Afterwards Mercury appears as the evening star. According to Michael R. Mayer, this stage of Mercury’s cycle is akin to the full moon. So in a sense we have a Double Full Moon on a galactic scale.


On Saturday morning August 9th the sun and Saturn form an exact square. This square is important because the signs Leo and Scorpio are activated. Their tensions are brought to the forefront – in order to be released. Leo is all about coming out into the light and boldly stepping onto the path with no original shame. Scorpio is also bold, but its boldness lies in its secrecy and insidiousness. Saturn in Scorpio also carries associations of power and authority and the rule of something constrictive. Ironically however the ego mechanism and its potential downfalls lies in Leo. So we have perhaps a last attempt at holding the light back, but it only serves to purge the remaining strands of ego out of the light that is about to be revealed, clearing the divine pathway of Leo. This pathway may have not been cleared until now and began its clearing process already over the mourning of August 4th-5th.


Full moon exact astronomically at the 11 o’clock hour of Sunday morning. The full moon will thus be visible in its fullness Saturday and Sunday nights. Sunday is the Jewish holiday of Tu B’av, the holiest day of the year on an inner level. It represents the full reconciliation and comfort after all the destruction that has taken place in the last month, which represents history for the last 3326 years. The metaphor for this comfort is the maidens dress up in white and choose a partner of their choice, the tribes intermix and all the gateways are open.


Tu b’Av continues until Monday night (I have noticed in recent times holidays are most potent the night after, as if the energy has shifted to highlight the end of events, mirroring our standing at the very edge of history).


On Monday night, early Tuesday morning at 12:23 am, Venus enters Leo. The chart above presents this progression. Venus’ transit into Leo opens a window of 72 hours in which four planets are stationed in these celestial coordinates of unimaginable intergalactic historical significance. Thus the full moon marks the gateway into this doorway, and what lies on the other side is simply not known. There has not been a moment in 2014 like this one, until now. Note that due to the choices made by people in this realm this change may manifest on an inner level, and that is why I am writing this message, so that we take note and are highly attentive to the effect of this Leo ingress on our inner being. It could be a moment where the movers and shakers try to four-wheel-drive the world into the “golden age” of their choosing by force or shock & awe chaos. More likely however these planets are so intimately attuned to our DNA time-bomb ticking down to the moment when the shift must occur, when the influx of light is so great that all of our faculties follow suit and rise to the challenge of making our senses, our mind, our physical surroundings, everything in 3d, be a dwelling place, for the presence that is about to return, and resurrect everything, every lost hope, for the Purpose that was, is, will be, for the Purpose encoded in all sacred texts, for the purpose that now, only the soul knows, that Knowing that only when she is reunited with her Beloved can she at last exhale and give up the hopeless desires she has pursued, and know that all are none but extensions of the ONE. This knowledge is about to become material, too.

The Astrology behind Mashiach’s birth at noon on Tisha B’Av: 5774/2014 and the eve of 2015/5775, the Shmittah Year

Noon on Tisha Bav – sun overhead (conjunct midheaven) at 13 Leo. Obama’s sun is at 12’33” Leo. Jupiter at 4 Leo square Mars rising on the ascendant at 5 Scorpio. Saturn and Moon to rise shortly after. Sun quincunx Pluto at 11 Capricorn. Neptune quincunx Jupiter at 6 Pisces. Uranus and Saturn still quincunx at 16 Aries-Scorpio. Regulus just short of overhead near the key planets in Leo. Looks like high noon and a 2-hour window from then when the moon will rise and Regulus will be overhead is a chart suggesting Mashiach is born out of the rubble.


August 2014: The runway for the realm-bridging, embedded in our DNA, the necessary outgrowth of the fall

we’ve had a bit of a respite the past few days from sweeping changes, more like rearranging the chairs on the … but in 4 hours mercury enters Leo bringing the planet count there to 3 (goes up to 4 on aug. 12th), a further injunction into the Golden Era. then tonight Venus in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, igniting tension for the fiery weekend ahead. friday, mars in scorpio squares jupiter in leo. saturday moon conjunct spica, sunday moon conjunct mars (square jupiter) and sun and pluto quincunx at 11 degrees. friday is also the day of the passing of the holy sage Ari of Luria, who had the ability to perform unifications on people, places and things instantaneously and determine the tikkun needed by a particular soul in a particular moment or incarnation through his higher mind. these abilities are thus more available to us to draw on, learn from, and use this wisdom to improve our lives and hasten the complete and total redemption, may it come speedily in our days. this influence begins thursday at sunset and lasts for 48 hours. this weekend is the weekend of “shabbat chazon” where we are shown a vision in our mind’s eye of the third temple, may it be built speedily in our days. the third temple is a metaphor for the completion and perfection of material and physical matter despite the separation incident, the ‘fall’. it is the demonstrative of 666 turning to 777, or the total redemption of the fall, may it happen speedily in our days, and if we are truly in its wake may our eyes but be opened to its tug fully and with full faith. sometimes it is imperative to wait and sometimes it is imperative to know. next week beginning monday at sunset is the 9th of av which commemorates the destruction of the first and second temples, the totality of suffering and loss on the human plane that gives way for the emergence of the third, eternal, realm-bridging tent of awareness that redeems all that was and is and will be forever. may it happen speedily in our days and may our mind’s eye and all our physical senses and rational faculties be pulled into the tug of the realization of what is happening right now under our noses in preparation for this era, the reason we chose to incarnate.

Supermoon July/Tammuz: Flight of the Pheonix, Ressurrection of the Wheat, and Consolation of the Barren

The Full Moon Grand Cross Revisited




Unbelievable! The full moon will be taking place on the grand cross axis, re-activating it! Pluto and Jupiter have since drifted away from their posts, but the sun and moon opposite each other fill in, creating a Uranus-moon-sun-Mars square! Unreal! All 16-23 degrees. This should be the last time though all prep for July’s BANG right around the corner!

Could this full moon be impregnated by the energy of pluto, caught in the Capricorn-Cancer axis of this full moon, Pluto being the bird that has died, through the crucifixion of the grand cross, the energy we have been working so hard to refine & transmute, giving way to the Pheonix?

New crop circle reported July 8th


This theme of death/rebirth is also sadly playing out in the world at large and features in Sunday’s arrival of Mars at Spica, the kernel of wheat, wheat involves a similar process, the kernel must die but its death will produce new kernels – the death and birth is happening in us – we are the zombies!

But it looks like Friday-Saturday-Sunday is the turning point, between dead and waking, Mars crosses Spica, this crop circle, and the full moon at Pluto, resurrecting the grand cross, and then we move on…

Play by Play Weekend Ride

At 4:21pm Friday, moon and Pluto are conjunct–so we have the nearly full moon, about to rise, infusing with the plutonian Pheonix energy… the moon continues to move through Capricorn, passing Pluto at 12 Cap, and heading towards its station 12 hours later at 20 Cap where it receives the sun’s full illumination from 20 Cancer, this surely feels like the epitomy of all the action on the Cancer-Capricorn axis, previously sparked by Jupiter and Pluto, now with the full moon and near-rise Sun themselves, the king and queen of the sky.

At 10am Saturday the moon reaches 23’50″ Capricorn, which is a direct square to the fixed star Spica at 23’50″ Libra. in sidereal, Spica is the sheave of wheat of the Virgo. thus we have the full moon, carrying the Plutonian Pheonix ashes, squaring Virgo’s sheathe ready to with its kernel for new life.

It takes about 24 hours until Mars reaches Spica, landing on the kernel, sparking the regeneration. at that point the moon is in aquarius, already toiling the soil, filling the buckets, … of a new day. on july 16th, jupiter enters leo, the complementary sign of Aquarius, and the golden age has commenced, as if by stealth, since much is still underground with the dying kernel, for there is much to mourn–but nonetheless, above ground, if only in the recesses of consciousness, foreshadowing a full consolation, flashes, for now, of a garden, sprouting, bringing all the kernel’s essence to Life.

A look ahead

Late july and early august are replete with aspects to encourage this beginning.. 7/22 Sun enters Leo; 7/24 Jupiter & Sun are conjunct at 1 Leo; 7/26 Sun, Moon and Jupiter @ 1,2,3 Leo >> All in divine order unfolds… and that evening, a new month, the month of Av, the consoler

Consolation proceeds until its fullness at the full moon, and 8/12-8/15 Venus and Mercury join in as well with more aspects to Leo’s season.

This is not to say war in the middle east, market crashes, and earthquakes/flares will not be off the charts.. but there are processes simultaneously occurring, akin to ‘birthpangs’… may it be an easy birth, and a healthy baby, that will bring the joy and consolation of truth

An Intention for Saturday: 24 hours of the Supermoon


Full moon tugging the grand square past its april coordinates (13 of the cardinal signs) into the 16-23 degree territory of these signs, much fun for those of us with ascendants and planets in this area. duck and cover, or step into the fire, either way, this particular chapter lasts another 24 hours or so as mars lands at spica, completing the alchemy of wheat, the kernel is shed and the new fruit brings consolation to the woman, from barren and weeping to fertile and jubilant because she hears the whispers of the everlasting promise ~~~

On the tensions of the Square

Cancer and Capricorn can make a lovely covenant.. They are the Gate of Man and the Gate of God in esoteric astrology! We come out of the womb (Cancer) and aspire to touch the lofty transcendent reaches of Capricorn’s peaks.. So uniting them, in an individual, and in a relationship, is challenging, but fruitful. Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook said, if you find within yourself, or in a relationship for that matter, elements which others regard as oppositional or paradoxical, it is God giving YOU the opportunity to bridge them and make ONE out of them, everything is ONE at its source…

for the soul, a timeless omen

13 July late saturday night/early sunday morning; fixed star Spica conjunct Mars, the Virgo is Armed, a moment of truth, reckoning, on many levels

18 July early morning 7/18 quarter waning moon conjunct Uranus; quincunx Saturn; would not want to have karma undealt with then…

22 July 722 sun enters leo; 724 sun/jupiter conjunct – a new golden era rays are felt – and will increase – first in the heart, and then, with wood, stones, new structures – old wellsprings & comet depositories

The Cosmic Clock – Part 2: The Eclipse Sequence of 2014-2015


The 2012 Era: 1980-2016 (5740-5777)

The Earth has a 26,000 year processional cycle. According to John Major Jenkins, Mayan researcher, we are at the galactic alignment now.

“The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. This alignment occurs as a result of the precession of the equinoxes.

Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator (see diagram below).

The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997).

Thus, the Galactic Alignment “zone” is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 – 2016. This is “era-2012.”


May 24th: A Case Study for how to easily draw up an event chart



Q: Maybe you could also do a chart for around NOON on 5-24-2014 in Israel. The Pope will be there then…would love to see what the stars have to say about THAT! (Is this a computer program you use or do you have to pour over volumes of books to make these things? Don’t want to over-tax your skills!) Thanks again!!

A: I actually have a post with the pope’s full schedule since I find this whole visit very interesting. He will be in Jordan on the 24th and in Bethlehem the morning of the 25th and then Jerusalem in the afternoon of the 25th.

Here is a chart anyhow for the 24th at noon in Jerusalem. I’ll be happy to do another for 5/25 in Jerusalem at noon or 5pm.

Pulling up charts is really easy. You go to, then in the left-hand column click Free Horoscopes, then under that Chart Drawing, Ascendant, then it gives you a form to fill in with date, time and place. You can also use the site planetwatcher which pulls up the tropical astrology for any given time but is not location specific.

It gets trickier if you want to get an idea of where the planets are vis a vis the actual constellations in the night sky, which is a narrow stream of astrology called sidereal (the sites above use tropical astrology which uses the fixed divisions of the heavens based on where the constellations were 6,000 years ago). For sidereal astrology I use Stellarium and you have to have an idea ahead of time of what planetary body you want to check. I did see a video on another thread about a rare Venus/moon conjunction the morning of the papal visit which would be interesting to pull up in that program!

Note: Here is some further reading on the context of the Pope’s visit. 4 June (6 Sivan) is the anniversary of the passing of King David, whose burial site is the subject of some controversy leading up to the visit.


Sun conjunct Pleiades at 00′ Gemini: How to use the tropical and sidereal zodiac in harmony and recover the art of sacred timekeeping in the modern day

Here’s a chart for 11pm tomorrow 5/20 in NY when the sun enters Gemini, which is also when the sun is conjunct the Pleiades which are now at 00′ Gemini.


Comment: The interesting Sidereal Zodiac per NASA.
Sort of like a wheel in a wheel concerning the Western Tropical Zodiac.
It reminds me of the Georgian Calendar and the Hebrew calendar
(from WinterStone on GLP)


I consider the sidereal zodiac a helpful tool in a larger toolbox. The problem with sidereal how I see it is that there is no fixed point of reference since everything is moving due to precession. So I find it helpful to use the tropical zodiac for keeping track of the sun and other bodies traversing certain imaginary lines that never move in the celestial sphere and then also keeping track of the movements of the sun and other planets vis a vis the constellations and fixed stars. This is why the Pleiades conjunction with the sun is so important, more so than the sun entering “Gemini”, which is really just where Gemini the constellation was when the Chaldeans invented the zodiac as we know and use it, which has since moved about 22 degrees (1 degree every 72 years).

The sun in sidereal Taurus is a very rich time, this is where aldebaran is, the all seeing eye of the bull, and the Pleiades, which the sun is conjunct tomorrow, and the bull as you know as a whole as a symbol and one of the animals of the chariot. Notwithstanding my comment above the basis of astrology has always been looking at the heavenly bodies and how they appear vis a vis the other stars in the sky! I am just suggesting that we also find a point to tether it all to, and I think we will find that point when we discover the mystery of precession and our sun’s own binary star, i.e. What we are rotating in relation to, and also the polar shift and alignment of our earth’s axis.

Also one last point is that the Mayans were concerned with the Pleiades and in some way this is the true new year.
