February-in-waiting: the dance of the sun and Mercury retrograde and the debt ceiling delay

Update: It looks like the debt ceiling has been suspended until the Ides of March. I’m making slight changes to the post to account for how the transits this month could play into what us happening behind the scenes, since the can has been kicked down the road, yet again.

Business Insider reports:

House Republicans will hold a special meeting Monday night [February 10th] to determine their path forward on the debt ceiling, and it’ll be crucial for a deal before the Feb. 27 deadline.

The next morning, Tuesday, February 7th, the sun squares Saturn at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio @ 9am. Boehner announces he’s ready to go along with a suspension deal with no policy strings attached.

Let’s look at some important landmarks this month (full January-April aspect list here).

Friday February 14th features a full moon at 26 Leo/Aquarius. Then, the next day, on Saturday, the sun will be conjunct Mercury at 12:21pm–which are the same numbers – 12 degrees 21 minutes – as the inferior conjunction of the sun and Venus on January 11th. For those who have been watching, that was the beginning of the intermediate age which will usher in the age of Aquarius. For those who have eyes to see, the changes are already underway and accelerating at a dizzying pace.

Remember, Mercury is in retrograde, which is what “enables” it to meet the sun again, this time in Aquarius. Mercury and the sun were last “even” back at the end of December in Capricorn. Mercury entered Capricorn on December 24th, three days after the winter solstice. Since meeting the sun on the 28th, Mercury has been making its way ahead of the sun through Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, until it went retrograde the day before the Olympics at 1:44p.m at 3 Pisces. Mercury’s current retrograde brings it back through Aquarius until it meets the sun on the full moon / Valentine’s Day at 27 Aquarius.)

At the same time as the sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on Saturday, a 62-hour maintenance shutdown of a Social Security Administration computer system will commence, according to Yahoo news:

The Social Security computer system will be down from 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) on Saturday until 5 a.m. EST (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, February 18, CMS said.

Interestingly, the 18th features an important astrological landmark as well, even though it refers not to any celestial body’s position but rather to a mathematical calculation important to upcoming eclipses. On the morning of the 18th, the lunar node enters Libra–a cardinal sign, setting eclipse themes to Libra/Aries and away from Taurus/Scoprio (sigh of relief). On a macro scale this involves struggles and resolutions relating to the I-You binary/trajectory. In a transcendant sense, the eclipses bring our original soul being closer to a harmonization of the needs of the ego and the soul for freedom and peace.

Yet even more compelling perhaps is the Mercury-Saturn square on the 18th at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio, at 11:11pm on Tuesday night (PST). The Aquarius-Scorpio square was featured in the Sun/Saturn square which opened this post, framing the meeting tonight (Feb 10th). Sparks fly (in a dicey way) between Mercury’s love of speed and efficiency, and Saturn’s clamping down and closing doors.

A week later, with two days remaining before the “debt ceiling deadline” on the 27th, Jupiter squares Uranus at 10 degrees 33 minutes Aries / Cancer. This Jupiter-Uranus square is part of a sequence of the heavenly arrangement of a grand cardinal cross between Jupiter, Uranus, Mars and Pluto which will become exact at 13 degrees on April 22, 2014:

There are a few important things to note about this step towards the April square. The Jupiter-Uranus element of the square involves volatility and bubbles. At ten degrees, it heralds back to the first few weeks of January centering around 1/11 when those with eyes to see saw headlines which signaled a game-change. The last week of February will present itself as yet another chapter in an epic story going much further back than we knew, and reaching to futures even more far off than we imagined. This will accelerate even more when this square reaches 13 degrees and reveals itself even to the blind.

Finally, the day after the debt ceiling, Mercury again goes direct on the 28th at 18 degrees Aquarius. On March 1st, Mars goes into retrograde, starting the countdown to the April square, which will lock into place when Mars reaches 13 degrees Libra.

With the eclipses kicking off on April 15th and the square locking into place on April 22nd, all sides will be emboldened. What happens in this time should give those with eyes to see a very good sense for what is in store in the two-year eclipse period leading up to the jubilee year of 5777 and fireworks of 2017.

G-d bless!

The Cosmic Clock Part 3: The Twentieth Century and the Window of Sweetening

World History & the Cosmic Clock: the 20th century

window-of-opportunity

 

 

the following section is ADAPTED from The End of Days Blog, by: Dov Bar-Leib
* see original post for further elaboration * this adaptation represents my views only but is based on Dov’s superb work! *

All of world history is a cosmic travel from Pesach to Sukkot (Tabernacles).

The first Temple corresponded with Pesach.

The Second Temple corresponded with Shavuot (The Feast of Weeks).

The final Temple will correspond with Sukkot (Tabernacles) [note: this year Sukkot begins Sept. 18th, includes the fall equinox on 9/22 and ends with Shmini Atzeret on Sept 26th..this will be a big 'wrap-up' time].

On the day of the Second Temples destruction, the 9th of Av, we entered the year of the 17th of Tamuz.

The Cosmic Clock started to tick again in 1918. When asked why children of Torah scholars no longer walked in the way of their ancestors, the Chazon Ish [the great one of his generation] answered, “the winds of cosmic change are blowing at gale force.”

The 21 years between the end of WWI in 1918 and the beginning of WW2 in 1939 correspond to 21 days between the 17th of Tamuz and the 9th of Av.

1918 (5678) ~ the last year of the 17th of Tamuz (cycles spanning 2000 years of exile)

1931 (5691) – Rosh Chodesh Av (the first of Av).

1939 (5699) – 9th of Av. Hitler attacked Poland less than 1 month before 5700, the 10th of Av.

[Each month, the spiritual decree is on the 1st. It is sealed on the 10th. And it becomes physically manifest on the 14th day for 29 day months and on the 15th day for 30 day months. The New Moon judgments determine our eternity while the full moon judgments determine our this worldly status. (Dov Bar Leib)]

5699 (1939) – 9th of Av

5705 (1945) – Tu B’Av (15th of Av) – an ancient festival celebrating the end of our destructions which regularly started with the 9th of Av.

As we approach the Sukkot period of world History, the redemption from 1945 onwards can can be understood on two levels: the microcosm, the redemption of Israel, counting down to Pesach; and the macrocosm, the redemption of Humanity, counting down to Sukkot.

On a macrocosmic level, 5705 (end of World War 2) can best be tied to Tu B’Av (15th of Av), the end of destruction. For Israel as a nation it also represented Tu Bishvat 15th of Shvat, the New Year for fruit trees in the Land of Israel, as return to the land commenced.

1945-present (macrocosm/microcosm) [dates via Dov Bar-Leib]

5699 – 1939 – 9th of Av
5705 – 1945 – Tu B’Av / Tu Bishvat (15th of Av / 15th of Shvat)
5708 – 1948 – Chai Av / Chai Shvat (18th of Av / 18th of Shvat)
5720 – 1960 – Rosh Chodesh Elul / Rosh Chodesh Adar (1st of Elul / 1st of Adar)
5727 – 1967 – Zayin Adar (7th of Adar) – day of Moses’ passing
5734 – 1973 – Purim (Yom Kippur War – Yom Kippur = Yom K’Purim, a day like Purim)
5750 – 1990 – Rosh Hashana
5751 – 1991 – beginning of new era (corresponding to the new year) [If Elul had 29 days as is the case in our long exile, then the first of Tishrei would be 5750. If on the other hand, Elul had 30 days the first of Tishrei would be 5751. - Dov Bar-Leib]

According to the Vilna Gaon, three quarters of the way through the sixth millenium [1990] will be akin to three quarters of the way through the sixth day of the week (Friday), which comes to NOON on the sixth day. On noon on Fridays, the shofar blowers (lightbearers) would blow the shofar to announce to those in the fields that the Sabbath (the 7th millenium) is approaching. On that day the shofar was blown and all the souls scattered in Ashur and Mitzrayim assembled at the holy mountain in Jerusalem.

Ten Years of Awe between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur: 5750-5760 (1990-2000)

5760 – (Y2K) – Yom Kippur

 

2000-2014: From Yom Kippur to Sukkot (ad v’ad bichlal)

Sukkot[my take on where we stand now!]

Yom Kippur = Y2k = 2000

Sukkot = Redemption [according to the model above]

so where are we now???

12 “days” after Yom Kippur = 2012 (= 5772) = Shmini Atzeret
13 days later = 2013 (5773) = Simchat Torah
14 days later = 2014 (5774 – begins Sept 4th = Shabbat Bereshit – Sabbath of Creation (which in 5774 falls on the 24th of Tishrei)

There are 3 full days between Yom Kippur & Erev Sukkot. These are extremely rushed days during which people scurry to build a sukkah (temporary dwelling space) after the day of fasting/cleansing and before the full moon harvest festival of Tabernacles. On a deeper level, the judgment or new energy of the year is sealed on Yom Kippur, and the energy of the new year begins on Sukkot. So there are 3 full days (& one half-day, since Sukkot begins at sunset on the 4th intervening day) that are sort of a lag-time between when the judgment for the new year is sealed and the new revelation is experienced. This is why the act of hammering in the first nail of the sukkah is very sacred and many rush to do it on the night following Yom Kippur right after breaking the fast, or even before eating. Then those three days are nearly non-conscious in a state of flow, as one rushes around to acquire the four species of plant and seven species of fruit and builds the temporary dwelling and prepares for the festival.

On a deeper level this is because although the judgment is sealed, there is still a sort of window to adjust it. The joy one experiences on the holiday is the ultimate clincher, and Shmini Atzeret or the EIGHTH (alluding to Chanukah and the Infinite) day of Sukkot is really when the ‘pitka’ or note with one’s destiny for that year is submitted in heaven.

ImageStill, according to Chasidic thought the interim period extends through Chanukah (ISON perihilion), and the 8th day of Chanukah known as Zot Chanukah, when all windows display a full candleabra of 8 candles (under a comet), the light is so strong that all iniquities are in any case transmuted to merits and all judgments are nullified, all decrees sweetened, all is drenched in essence and begins anew.

What the tzadikim [righteous] can not reach on Nielah of Yom Kippur, a regular person can reach on the 8th day of Chanukah

And so … the 3.5 days between Yom Kippur (2000) and Sukkot (redemption), which were supposed to take only 3.5 years, have stretched now to 12.5/13, because the longer the delay, the sweeter the judgment….although the delay is SURELY OVER!!!

8/20: August full moon ~ Basking in the rays of the era of Luna and Aquarius

Image

Full moon chart features:
* Sun & mercury in LEO opposite moon in AQUARIUS & nearby neptune in pisces…

*Grand cardinal cross: pluto in capricorn x jupiter in cancer, uranus in aries x newcomer venus in LIBRA

*Grand water trine: saturn & node in scorpio – jupiter in cancer – neptune, chiron in pisces

Grand cardinal cross sets up the stage for a major shift as a result of no other choice ~ the new venus in libra suggests this is about rising to a higher equilibrium

Water trine continues to bring prophecy in through the soul’s portals from distant worlds to lubricate the shift…

Aquarius-leo / solar-lunar opposition catapults us from nostalgia of lost golden ages and the sunburn of matrix rule to bask in the cumulative rays of light shining forth from the new era led by Luna and Aquarius ~ well aspected Pluto in Capricorn suggests systemic change and developments on the global scale as well..

The shift ushered in by the full moon carries through the week and builds towards the grand sextile + grand cross formation on Sunday

This energy is high-powered.. not much left to do now.. the work to receive this energy has been happening all along.. BELIEVE

The Swan, Self-Realization and the Illumination of Subtle Knowledge: Aquarius Full Moon 8/20

cygnus constellation

Saturday night Capricorn moon growing towards a full moon on Tuesday at 6:45pm PST at 28 Aquarius in the constellation Cygnus – the Swan

This is the second consecutive full moon in Aquarius. These full moons bring new illumination to the worlds of hidden knowledge that have been with humanity for eons and are now arising in our consciousness through subtle awareness. This hidden knowledge includes information about our sun’s binary star, our own solar system’s relationship with other heavenly bodies, our true reference point, our real origin and destiny. We are approaching the culmination of grand cycles and our knowledge base is being upgraded to consciously experience what is happening. Consciousness is a part of the shift, we are the center of this shift, our own self-realization is the self-realization of the cosmos.

Self-realization on the cosmic scale necessitates fluidity of form. This is the modality of the swan (from Your Lost Zodiac Sign): “Passive and contemplative, you can play any role the world imposes on you, but anyone who thinks that they can pin you down is doomed to fail. The swan is a symbol of personal growth and transformation and it is through playing many roles that you discover your real self and come into your own.”
