Externally, the fast day of 17 Tammuz is a matter of punishment. But the inner aspect of the fast — which is the aspect of the fast that will be revealed when Moshiach comes — is a day of joy and happiness and a festive time. Which means that it is not an instance of punishment which brings about the geulah, but rather that the fast itself is at its inner core a matter of joy and happiness. This reveals that even the aspect of punishment associated with the day comes from the Almighty’s love for Jews, as expressed in the analogy of “a great and awesome king who himself in all his glory washes the filth from his only son due to his great love for him,” as stated in the posuk “When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion” (Yeshayahu 4:4).

The following is based on the 120-day cycle of the Torah:
On 7 Sivan, Moses went up onto the mountain . . . On 17 Tammuz, the tablets were broken. On the 18th, he burned the [Golden] Calf and judged the transgressors. On the 19th, he went up for forty days and pleaded for mercy. On 1 Elul, he went up to receive the second tablets, and was there for forty days. On 10 Tishrei, G‑d restored His goodwill with the Jewish people gladly and wholeheartedly, saying to Moses, “I have forgiven, as you ask,” and gave him the Second Tablets.

New biblical year begins with the sanctification of the new month at the new crescent moon
The waning crescent moon in the early hours of 4/4 was conjunct Aldebarran, the P’nei-El gland, the seat of the soul.
This is a highly symbolic placement

The new moon also coincided with a conjunction of the sun and Uranus (midnight 4/2)

** 7th day of Omer ~ 8th Day of Passover ~ Grand Cross **
The grand cross carries with it its own activation Key ~~ the rise of the feminine aspect of authority, tapping on ancient legacies, calling on Mother God’s love, like a mother turns to her crying child. This is like the wildcard of history, when the going gets really tough, its a job for mom; the severity opens up the highest gateway of compassion and the indwellingness of God’s love in our world and in Us

The fast of the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, known as Shivah Asar B’Tammuz, is the start of a three-week mourning period for the destruction of Jerusalem and the two Holy Temples.
The fast actually commemorates five tragic events that occurred on this date:
- Moses broke the tablets when he saw the Jewish people worshipping the Golden Calf.
- During the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem, the Jews were forced to cease offering the daily sacrifices due to the lack of sheep.
- Apostomos burned the holy Torah.1
- An idol was placed in the Holy Temple.2
- The walls of Jerusalem were breached by the Romans, in 69 CE, after a lengthy siege. (Three weeks later, after the Jews put up a valiant struggle, the Romans destroyed the second Holy Temple on the 9th of Av.)
The Jerusalem Talmud maintains that this is also the date when the Babylonians breached the walls of Jerusalem on their way to destroying the first Temple.

“The light of the moon will be like the light of the sun; the light of the sun shall be sevenfold the light of seven days.” (Isaiah 30:26)
In the future, the light of the moon will equal the light of the sun, and both will be sevenfold the light that was revealed during the inauguration of the First Temple. Accordingly, the moon will not need to receive its light from the sun, for it too will be a luminary.
Certainly [the verse refers to] the seven days of inauguration (Hannukah), for then the world will be completely rectified and the moon will return to its fullness without blemish [just as it was in the days of the First Temple].
And when will this be? At the time of which it is written, “He will destroy death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) [and life will be eternal]. “On that day G-d will be One and His Name One.” (Zachariah 14:9)
The people of Israel, says the Zohar, mark time with the moon because they emulate the moon. Like the moon, the nation dips and soars through history, his regressions and defeats but preludes to yet another rebirth, yet another renewal. The story of the moon is the story of a nation, and the story of every productive life: lack fuels initiative, setbacks stimulate growth, and one’s highest achievements are born out of moments of diminution and depreciation.
There are two perspectives from which the lunar cycle may be viewed: from the perspective of the moon’s illumination of the earth, or from the perspective of the moon’s relationship with the source of its light, the sun. Viewed from the first perspective, the moon undergoes changes and dimunitions, achieving its full luminary potential only after an arduous climb of fifteen days, and then waning to nothingness in the course of the latter half of the month. Viewed from the second perspective, the moon, of course, is never “diminished”: it remains the same size throughout its orbit, and the light of the sun bathes its surface at all times. Indeed, the very point at which the moon is completely dark (and thus “non-existent”) to the earthly observer is the apex of the moon’s relationship with the sun—the point at which the sun’s illumination of the moon is at its brightest and most intense.
