The Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle of seasonal festivals. It consists of the solstices and equinoxes and the four midpoints between, known as the “cross quarter days.

The solstices and equinoxes, as well as the cross-quarters, are embedded in monolithic structures around the globe. At the Mound of the Hostages on the Hill of Tara, the inner chamber is aligned with the rising sun on the dates of Imbolc and Samhain.

The solstices and equinoxes form the four corners of the astrological cardinal cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. The cross-quarter days form the four corners of the fixed cross, in the signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio, which are also the four animals on Ezekiel’s chariot.

Happy Imbolc! We are at the mid-point (Northern hemisphere) between the longest night & the Spring Equinox, marked in ancient celebrations of the Goddess Brighid, (who became Saint Brigid) goddess of fire & inspiration, poetry & healing, & (on Sunday) of Candlemas. It’s about nourishing the returning light & spark of life within ourselves & in the world, about consciously birthing our own lives & the world we share. ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

    Thanks for your great work, I have to read it several times but I’ll get there. I have a question?

    Wheel within a wheel…

    Isaiah 40:22
    It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

    Job 22:13-15
    13 And you say, ‘What does God know?
    Can He judge through the deep darkness?
    14 Thick clouds cover Him, so that He cannot see,
    And He walks above the circle of heaven.’

    The Mazzaroth (zodiac) and the ecliptic.

    Anyway my question?

    The world is in great confusion and some have likened it to the chaos the house is in right before we light the Shabbat candles. We should correct that to the chaos before a major festival, Pesach for example. Back to my question?

    Jupiter (the King of planets) is in Gemini the twins, Moshiach ben Yosef, Moshiach ben David? The king of planets would indicate ben David to me. On the other side of Orion/Edom/Esau (the hunter) is Taurus with Aldebaran linked with Michael the archangel.
    The others, Gabriel Fomalhaut, Raphael Regulus and Uriel Antares.

    In Daniel 4 we find a watcher (Michael) and a Holy one (Moshiach ben David

    13 “I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. 14 He cried aloud and said thus:

    This dream was directed at the Prince of Persia as well as Nebuchadnezzar that’s why he fought so hard for 21 days in Daniel 10.

    Anyway this array in the heavens reminds me of…

    Daniel 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”

    Daniel 12:1
    “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who standswatch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.

    Well there’s some good news! Michael standing up that is, does this array Jupiter in Gemini with Aldebaran flanking Orion ring true?

    I’m looking up…

    Mordechai ben Avram
