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…

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.

Similar to the natal retrograde Neptune, the transiting retrograde causes sensitivity and receptivity to be much more acute. Due to this heightened receptivity, we are allowed to see far more than is possible when Neptune is direct. This is possibly a result of augmented intuitive or inner vision that bestows a different and more insightful perspective on matters. ~ Lynn Koiner

Increasing the Experience of Oneness (Gnosis) through the Incorporation of Paradox and Expansion of Dimensions ~ Mezuzah

the merkabah is the state of perfect knowledge about which it is said
‘Whenever one has knowledge (da’at), it is as though the Temple was built in his days’

there are tools that bridge between the state of total acceptance and willingness to go through anything the universe brings upon us, and our ability to direct this energy; one of these tools is prayer which begins with gratitude and thus acceptance of what is, becoming one with the all of existence, and bringing down more collective good (healing/miracles) on the way down; the other is performing physical acts that bridge the material and spiritual spheres more quickly and readily than normal, which create mini-portals for accelerated miracles; these include acts of kindness, ethical wholeness, structuring our material environment in alignment with oneness… for issues around a house there is an ancient tradition of putting up a small scroll of text declaring the ultimate oneness of G-d and our commitment to live in alignment with this, and placing this upon the doorways of our home as a metaphor for inscribing this text on all the doorways of our body (eyes/ears/nose/mouth) so that no sensory information can take us away from this ultimate point of gnosis and moreover that our experience of physical reality actually increases our gnosis of the oneness through incorporating paradox and more and more dimensions


And you shall write [the words that I command you today] on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. -Deuteronomy 6:9, 11:19


Photo Dan Raber, Loudon TN

Cyrus Gordon (1995) proposes that the Los Lunas Decalogue is in fact a Samaritan mezuzah. The familiar Jewish mezuzah is a tiny scroll placed in a small container mounted by the entrance to a house. The ancient Samaritan mezuzah, on the other hand, was commonly a large stone slab placed by the gateway to a property or synagogue, and bearing an abridged version of the Decalogue. Gordon proposes that the most likely age of the Los Lunas inscription is the Byzantine period. ~ las lunnas stone

For more information about mezuzot or to purchase valid scrolls for a mezuzah online, visit the Jewish FAQ or S.T.A.M. website.

More from Jewish FAQ:

The mitzvah to place mezuzot on the doorposts of our houses is derived from Deut. 6:4-9, a passage commonly known as the Shema (Heb: Hear, from the first word of the passage). In that passage, G-d commands us to keep His words constantly in our minds and in our hearts by (among other things) writing them on the doorposts of our house. The words of the Shema are written on a tiny scroll of parchment, along with the words of a companion passage, Deut. 11:13-21. On the back of the scroll, a name of G-d is written. The scroll is then rolled up and placed in the case, so that the first letter of the Name (the letter Shin) is visible (or, more commonly, the letter Shin is written on the outside of the case).

Back to Eden: A Cosmic ‘Perfect Storm’ of Reality & Conscious Awareness


Has the messianic era already begun, and how to make sure you don’t miss the bandwagon ~

On the idea of consciousness AFFECTING how we will experience huge upheavals coming.

aka: On the difference between there being a ‘separation event’ before great changes in the world vs. the other way around.

But … maybe they are the same thing, and what matters is, how we understand what is happening.

But why is this relationship between consciousness and reality happening now?

Has it always been this way or is something bizarre happening to the timeline?

Is this the ‘messianic era’ that has always been prophecied?

Has a change ALREADY occurred in reality that we only need to awaken to?

So it’s a combination of a change out there (that has already happened), and a change inside our own mind’s eye?

I believe mystics have always been able to tap into this, but it seems the world is now providing an opportunity for humanity to do this en masse?

In jewish eschatology 1990 was the beginning of a time category in Jewish law (metaphorical) called “noon on Friday” i.e. the sixth millenium, which began in 1240. From noon the sun begins to descend from its highest point, i.e. strongest point (height of concealment parallel to binary star apogee/darkest yuga), from there, towards the horizon, where at sunset a new day/era begins. Only that on friday throughout the hours of noon to sunset (1990 and on) there are incremental categories where you could say the next day (sabbath / the messianic era) has already begun. in 2011, the category of “half past noon” began, and in Jewish law (think metaphorically-open your mind’s eye) this is the hour after which it is actually forbidden to have a store open, i.e. the reality of the sabbath era ALREADY APPLIES – but look – it has to do with CONSCIOUSNESS, i.e. if you don’t act as if sabbath has begun, it hasn’t, so it has everything to do with our behavior and only a little to do with reality. But the law says, if you have your shop open on friday past half noon (2011), you have effectively broken the sabbath, so you could say objectively (legally) the sabbath has begun. The sabbath being the era where we are godlike, 100%.

So basically, if we do not act and embrace being godlike (pineal opening) after 2011, we are in effect on the wrong side of the fence, even though this has been forbidden for all of history, precisely so that now it would be done right.

{ And this was adam’s original error, that he did not wait until sunset to eat from the tree. }

We were ALWAYS destined to eat from the tree of knowledge. our creator(s) wanted us to have the capacity to cope with the stricture inherent in the full gamut of reality, like an infant’s digestive system that must mature. Hence history and maturity and the trials we face in our own psyche lives and national and global narrative.

But now, it is a mitzvah to bring in the sabbath early, and this is the era to do so. however, in the most paradoxical of ways, it is only the era to do so if you live in that era. that is the essence of the liminal time we live in - between half past noon (mincha gedola) and shkia (sunset) on friday (the sixth millenium – the height of Man before he returns to Eden).

basically you can’t enter the garden if you still have to clarify evil in the world or within. this isn’t a forbidden sign, it’s a barrier implicit in eden itself. the entrance is guarded by revolving swords; all thought forms are cut off automatically, inherently, if there is any chaff of evil remaining. ‘evil’ is a combination of the force in the world and the consciousness which gives it power. when we realize the purpose something serves, we can sweeten it at its root. when we realize everything, everything is conspiring for our greatest good, for our collective evolution, we may be of the material that the sword is impenetrable.

2014 Aries Ingress Horoscope: Global Revolution Going “Full Throttle”

Originally posted on Predictions & Commentary by William Stickevers:

Since the 5th Century onward there has been a consistent pattern of “X-Events”. “X-Events” can be defined as unexpected major events that have changed the course of history.  Historically “X-Events” have had potent long-term global significance that often occur during the second decade at the start each century. Many of these game-changing historical events have often occurred in the middle part of the decade and correlated to the rise and fall of empires, large-scale military invasions, revolts and social revolutions, political power-struggles of international significance,  unexpected outcomes in military campaigns, religious conflicts, along with the outbreak of major world wars, to name a few.
