Countdown to April’s Grand Cardinal Cross!! Week 1: 4/1-4/8: Sun, Uranus, Pluto and Mars Couples’ Dance

Image

 

 

Astro notebook:

midnight tonight, sun-uranus conjunct at 12 Aries; after that the sun will move a degree a day through aries, hitting 25 at the lunar eclipse, and already at 2 taurus for the grand square. Uranus will inch fractions of a degree a day until it arrives around 13’37” for the grand square on 4/22

what else? tomorrow mercury quincunx mars retrograde at 21 Libra/Pisces. Quincunx highlights the disjointed energies of two signs with little in common and offers a chance to bridge. Pisces is about the undifferentiated other and the urge to self-sacrifice, Libra is about balance and justice and guidelines of cooperation between distinct parties. Libra characterizes the seventh house of relationships; Pisces the last house of the subconscious. They are actually very deeply related and intertwined, and the quincunx offers the possiblity of infusing relationship with divine energy that underlies all Love.

later in the day, quick-moving mercury trines Saturn in Scorpio at 22 Pisces/Scorpio, a nice water trine. the benefits of that sewn in the day will be reaped by the waters of intuition, realization, purification and connectivity across timelines.

on april 3 we hit a major milestone for the grand cross that is the big story of 2014 and has been forming since january. april 3 features a perfect square between the sun and pluto at 13 degrees. this is also the degree of the grand cross! so we have the sun essentially prepping the pad for uranus to launch from. the sun and pluto brings out a different dynamic than uranus and pluto; the sun sheds light on things, while uranus ‘twirls’ that light. sun-pluto square for those who have it in their charts, involve, on a personal level, constant misunderstandings around issues of self-expression and power, and deeper conflicts between the soul’s power that does not need to be proven, and the ego’s travails in the world of worth, expression, and growth. ultimately the troubled soul finds that there is a bridge between ego and soul through expression. when uranus comes along in three weeks, it will provide the kick of inspiration, transcendence, and the sense of As Above So Below to take the whole saga way, way, way beyond ego and give us moments of lifetimes, openings to higher worlds always latent in the backdrop.

on friday venus and the node trine and past life and soul contract tropes are available through mental and creative avenues, and dreams too. the next day venus moves into pisces and these could become more vivid throughout the month. (and why are dreams so intense right now??) mercury too will trine the node and messages from other realms are at an all season-high. mercury then moves into aries, raising the possibility that our active dream life and dippings into other realms will begin to unfold in the physical realm in which we find ourself, and through the grand cross, spirit will become flesh.

a week from today, the sun will be exactly opposite mars at 18 degrees aries/libra. this is the next big milestone of this month, after april 3rd, of the tightening grand cross. the sun is moving forward through the zodiac; mars is moving backwards due to perceived retrograde motion. they meet at 18, which happens to be the sidereal degree of the cross (in mutable signs). 18 is the number of life, equaling CHAI in Hebrew. 18 of each sign is the LIFE-FORCE of each sign. in chasidic thought we learn, the life force of a thing is the divine breath in it. so each 18 point of a sign is the navel so to speak into which G-d breathed intentionality into the energies of the sodiac that make up the spiritual blueprint of this world. from the 18 emanates and to the 18th flows, in a Torus movement.

this point is adjacent to the grand cross, slightly past its mark, but due to mars retrograde, the life force or origin point of libra and aries will be brought into the cross. this will center around the point from which self and other diverge, the game that is owning the creation of your reality.

Jesus Statue In Rio De Janeiro Struck By Lightning, Christ The Redeemer Loses Finger – Yod / Finger of God at Aquarian Mercury on 1/19 Sunday Night

On January 19th at 8pm pst, the Sun enters Aquarius, the sign of man, messianic era, corresponding to Shevat and the face of Man on the chariot (merkabah). This sign can go either way; man can ‘fly too close to the sun’ like Icarus and fall due to hubris, falsely crossing the boundary of spirit and flesh, or man can be resurrected from temporal physicality and access the higher dimensions of messianic consciousness and transcend the boundaries of time and space like Rabbi Akiva did when he entered the Pardes and left in peace. This trajectory played out in the dynamics of comet ISON (I-Sun/Son) and we are still watching to see how the story ends.

An hour after the sun enters Aquarius, as the moon rises in Virgo, (Israel/woman of the apocalypse) near Regulus (king star), there will be a brief “Yod” / Finger of Destiny (green dotted lines in the chart below), pointing at Mercury in Aquarius in the 5th house (the ‘seeding’ messianic consciousness), as the rising moon in Virgo (illuminated female receptacle) sextiles with Jupiter/Sirius in Cancer (our cosmic cousins, at the gate of Man).

Image

On Thursday night the “Finger of God” fell to earth after lightning struck the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio. On Thursday the fifth portion of Yitro is read, which includes the verses: “I am God your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, from the place of slavery. Do not have any other gods before Me. Do not represent [such] gods by any carved statue or picture of anything in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land.” (Exodus 20:2-4)

Image

The Yod on Sunday night, first reading of Parshas Misphatim, the gateway to the most esoteric part of the Zohar, in light of the alignment on Rosh Hashana 2017 (5778):

On 9/20/17 Rosh Hashanah 5778 Virgo is clothed with the Sun, the Moon is in close conjunction with the sun, and there is an alignment of Jupiter, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Regulus, with Venus in conjunction with Regulus.

We watch the heavens to live in the present, in the light of the future, which the righteous live in, past, present and future.

‘Thus hath R. Johanan said: in the generation when the son of David [i.e., Mashiach] will come, scholars will be few in number, and as for the rest, their eyes will fail through sorrow and grief. Multitudes of trouble and evil decrees will be promulgated anew, each new evil coming with haste before the other has ended.’ (Sanhedrin 97a)

The seven year cycle:

Our Rabbis taught: in the seven year cycle at the end of which the son of David will come-in the first year, this verse will be fulfilled: And I will cause it to rain upon one city and cause it not to rain upon another city; in the second, the arrows of hunger will be sent forth; in the third, a great famine, in the course of which men, women, and children, pious men and saints will die, and the Torah will be forgotten by its students; in the fourth, partial plenty; in the fifth, great plenty, when men will eat, drink and rejoice, and the Torah will return to its disciples; in the sixth, [Heavenly] sounds; in the seventh, wars; and at the conclusion of the septennate the son of David will come (the first year of the next Shmita cycle). R. Joseph demurred: But so many septennates have passed, yet has he not come! — Abaye retorted: Were there then [Heavenly] sounds in the sixth and wars in the seventh! Moreover, have they [sc. the troubles] been in this order!

The fiftieth year – Yovel:

Yovel carries three meanings – “Ram’s horn“, “Jubilee” and “to be carried”. The time will come when we will be “yoveled”, carried off, to our eternal resting place; to HaShem.

Full Moon Cancer / Tu Bishvat / Beginning of a New Cycle

Full Moon in Cancer, 4:52am GMT on Jan. 16th @ 25* 58″ Cancer/Capricorn

Image

* Grand Cardinal cross: Mars-Vesta, Venus-Pluto-Sun, Jupiter, Uranus. This cross began Christmas eve and will last through Passover/April 2014/1st Blood Moon, but this instance of it features a fairly close and brief Mars-Venus square, just before Venus becomes the morning star on the 17th. Potent energy.
* The rising sign/ascendant of this chart is conjunct with the fixed Star Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, invested with ancient, subconscious messianic anticipation.

* Saturn presents a cooling, balming effect on the hard square aspects, suggesting that with teachings and emotional maturity one can elevate the aspects and gain insight from these times.

Via End of Days:

while the “9 months” of Geulah b’Rachamim apparently began… last Av [August 2012] and ending during Pesach [March 2013],

the “9 months” of Geulah b’Din, which ends next Sukkot [September 2014], begins next week just before Tu B’Shevat [January 15/16, 2014].

It should be noted that due to the fact that this Hebrew year has a 13th month beginning on the next new moon, the budding of the trees may not occur until the following full moon.

This entire year since Rosh Hashana has featured a ‘doubling’ of epochs in which we are not sure which month we are truly in. This will be realigned after the 13th month and the vernal equinox, 1 Nissan, April 1st 2014 (4/1/14).

This may give reason to examine a similar chart the next full moon in alignment with these prophecies:

Full Moon in Leo, 12:52am GMT on Feb. 14th @ 26* 13″ Leo/Aquarius

Image

By the next full moon, the grand cross has dis-assembled for a short window. The sun and Mercury are in range of Netpune and Chiron, coming closer to what will be a Solar-Neptunian conjunction on Feb 23rd, and a Solar-Chiron conjunction on March 3rd, shedding light on the deep waters of subconscious awakening that have been occuring since the confluence of Neptune and Chiron in Pisces in recent times.

This February full moon chart also features a tight t-square between Jupiter, Pluto-Venus and Uranus, without the fourth corner of Mars and Vesta in Libra. However the aspects between Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto-Venus have become tighter.

In conclusion, each of these full moon charts represents incremental tightening of the gears of the grand cardinal cross that will again appear tighter as a result of these incremental changes, after the vernal equinox on the eve of the first blood moon.

Also, the Leo/Aquarius Full moon brings in a decisively golden-era and shift-focused illumination to this process, with the moon in Leo drawing memories from ancient times and the sun in Aquarius awakening the relevance of ancient texts and prophecies for our times, finding the right balance of what to reap from the harvest, what to cast away, and how to step into unprecedented times.

These months ahead present an unprecedented buildup sequence to the eclipse sequence that sets off after the vernal equinox. All is in place by the 1st of April, and these next four months lay the inner groundwork for the outer transformation.

Yom Kippur: Consummation of the Alchemical Marriage; 4-5 Tishrei/Venus-Moon Conjunction: The First Wave of Uncovering

Turner_-_The_Burning_of_the_Houses_of_Parliament

The energies of 5774 are here, and our system is experiencing them whether we can keep up with processing them, or not. It may be necessary to slip into other modes of experiencing reality such as meditation, prayer, ecstatic creative states, etc in order to truly fathom what is occuring to our multidimensional selves. Something that has been brewing and brimming over on the inside is now making its traces and marks on the outside, bafo’al mamash. Three-dimensional reality is on its way to becoming obsolete, but the very raw materials of three-dimensional reality–the sounds, sights, smells and angles, will be the language through which the true awe of Hashem – All That Is – will be communicated for every living being to grasp and worship out of nothing less than innate joy, love and awe of the heart.

We are now halfway between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. The inner point of the soul has  crowned G-d as King anew, and this assertion is translating and percolating down through our myriad layers of consciousness. By Yom Kippur we the bride (looking in the mirror, she can be either one) will be ready for her groom, ready for the harmonization of energies that will create the seamless continuum between physical and spiritual that will prepare the world for the great revelations that are coming. The delay is only for the sake of the natural process of enlightenment to take place in one additional soul, perhaps in your field of influence, to realize the truth of existence on one’s own before the revelation is so great that it happens instantaneously, with less individual merit. This is because those who have an inkling of what is coming before it comes, will derive that much more joy from the process of being a participant behind the veil of the process of concealment being revealed, which is according to the divine worlds the greatest joy that exists, the reason for which will also be part of the revelation, why things have been hidden, what benefit there is in the process of which we are part. Use this time, certain of what is coming, to prepare yet another feature of your surroundings, to be fit for the arrival of the Bride, for the human world and all the mulitiplicity it contains to be a proper vessel for the highest heights of divine bliss that are about to become manifest in our spheres. We are a part of this process and have been chosen to do so, do not doubt your importance or the great merit of being here now to witness and usher in the age for which the greatest of sages have wept many nights to see pass and to be included in its holy birth, which will please G-d be easy & quick.

For more information on how your divine imprint as manifest in your astrological chart will experience the shift, please contact me. You may donate after you have received a response if I am able to provide something of value to you.

P.S. Regarding current events: The world war narrative is a flipside of the potential for grand and utter transformation that is possible on a moral and spiritual plane inside our own selves and our spheres of influence, unlocked by the key of our true acceptance of the greatness of our mission, in complete bittul or oneness with All That Is, that which enlivens us incessantly through our individuality. When we step into this the war will be no more, there will be no opponents, because all will have returned to Source. Most of what we observe is for our own process, prevent harm where you can, and hear the divine communication in every step. Shana tova, gmar chatima tova, may you be inscribed & sealed in the Book of Life. Life is the beginning of all good things.

 

4-5 Tishrei/September 8: The first wave of uncovering

moon-venus-september-8

Source: Sky & Telescope

Sun Sept 8 (9/8) 1:44pm PST Venus Conjunct Moon @ 27 degrees 13′ Libra –

An initial wave of uncovering in the preparation of the Bride for consummation:

Rabbi Yose said: who is the beautiful virgin who has no eyes, whose body is secret but yet revealed, revealed in the morning and secret during the day, and adorned with jewelry that does not exist?

She is, so to speak, as a beautiful maiden, who hides in the inner chambers of her palace, who has a lover that no one knows but her. Because of the love that he feels, he loiters constantly by door of the girl and wanders restlessly with his eyes. She knows that he is still there near her home, and what does she do? She opens a narrow window in her palace chamber and shows her face to him. The beloved is revived, knowing that the girl has sent a sign of her love, even if only for a moment.

So is the Torah that reveals it innermost secrets only to those who love her; its elusive revealing stirs up the love of its lover. At the beginning, when Torah begins to speak to someone, it gives him allusions. If man understands and acknowledges it, good. Otherwise it sends for him, addresses him as “novice” and then says to his messengers: “Let all who are simple come in here!” she says to those who lack judgment. When he comes, the Torah begins to speak, at first from behind the curtain that it unfolds for him around its own words, so that they are in his measure (PSHAT).

Slowly he sees more and more: this is the so-called DRASHAH. After this the Torah begins to talk to him behind a fine cloth fabric, using riddles and parables, namely Aggadah. When at last the man can say he is in confidence with the Torah, then and only then she exposed to him face to face, telling him the secrets of the most inaccessible and mysterious ways, all the answers in her heart since immemorial time (SOD). Then the man is a true follower of the Torah, which may be called “Master of the House” (ba’al habayit) because she has revealed to him all her secrets, without keeping or concealing anything!

Then he realizes that indeed the words of the Torah is unacceptable to add or subtract anything, not even a sign or a character.

(Zohar II 94b-99b)

It was evening, it was morning – Day 1

Image

Everything that G!d created in this world has an aspect of light and an aspect of darkness, just as every day contains both dark and light. First comes the darkness and then the light, and even though they are opposites, together they are considered one complete day, and G!d makes peace between them, as we say, “You fashion light and create darkness, and make peace…

Then “even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you”, and you will understand that even the darkness is an aspect of G!d, and you will return the divinity bound within the darkness to its source in G!d’s infinite light.

It is so in our innermost selves and also in our outer deeds. So if you see some aspect of divinity bound up within your work or some other physical need, then grab hold of it and lift it up to G!d. If you are not sure how to do so, then pray to G!d for help. In this way you will lift up the aspect of divinity called Elohim, the L!RD, the Divine Judge, to that aspect called YHVH, G!d, the Merciful One.

This is the meaning of our verse, you shall know this day… “Knowing” means joining and union (as in “Adam knew his wife”), for we unite the two aspects of existence found in us and in the world, Judgment and Mercy, into one single “day.” This comes about because we have considered within our heart both inclinations, the good and the bad, and from the divinity bound up within nature, called Elohim, the L!RD, you have revealed YHVH, G!d, the Merciful One, in heaven above, for you have effected unity in the divine worlds above, and upon the earth below, in your own life.

It is impossible to maintain this unity at all times, however. After attaining it you must at times return to this world of multiplicity, so that you can once again strive to bring unity. Thus our sages said “prayer accomplishes half” — it can never accomplish all that it aims for, because if it were completely successful then there would be no need to pray again, and then G!d would be bereft of our prayers. This is why “G!d desires the prayers of the righteous”, for they constantly descend to the world of division and lift it up to unity, joining the darkness within themselves and the world with the light that is also within them.

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!!!
