From the Star of David Alignment to the Fall Equinox / Feast of Tabernacles: A Portal Fully Embodied on Earth
We feel something opened, and is now building from the ground up. A portal has opened, in a big way, and now we integrate the energy into our lives by drawing it down and uplifting to that level. There are some alignments in the star that only become precise as late as Sept 20th, like the mutually receptive Saturn-Pluto sextile. Because of this some feel that something opened yesterday which builds and culminates at the fall equinox. This also dovetails with prophecy in the Zohar about a star in the east and sixty days of an open portal (thanks to Rabbi David Katz for this synthesis). After that, expect more accelerated upgrades through Thanksgiving and the winter solstice.
So if yesterday was intense and today is slow, take this as Day 1 of growing towards that energy in a way that will be fully embodied on earth.
It’s time to ALCHEMIZE. The uniqueness of this portal is the transmutation of dark forces to light. (Thanks again to Rabbi Katz)
July 7-8: New moon in Cancer, Saturn turns direct! Plus: Prelude to the July 29th Celestial Star of David
The new moon on the night of July 7th (11:16pm PST) will occur in the sign of Cancer, with the moon wedged between Jupiter and the Sun and Mercury at 15 degrees. An hour earlier that night, Saturn at last turns direct at 4 Scorpio, another water sign. The presence of the moon, the planet of fluidity and change, and the forward motion of Saturn in the water signs brings about a renewal of energies in our inner pools which will sit in stillness as the moon waxes, until a release and a flow of the waters picks up around the night of the 17th, the end of the 3-week mourning period on the 9th of Av, marking the birth of the Messiah, from these waters.
With Saturn turning direct, Saturn’s transits through the areas of our lives will receive an influx of insight that has accumulated over Saturn’s retrograde motion through the house in a chart since mid-February, when Saturn’s transit through Scorpio pulled to an abrupt stop and back-tracked, bringing new things to light, but without the capacity for real progress. Now the insights will flow along with the natural evolution of the dynamics Saturn is maturing and uncovering. Things that have been withheld may not yet be returned, but the soul will grow new limbs to find its own self-styled substitutions for what is being occulted by Saturn. The new moon represents the birth of the soul’s powers to find the inner pools of wisdom, strength and vitality that will combine with Saturn’s maturing influence and upgrading of abilities.
Later this month, on July 29th, Saturn and the moon will take part in the celestial Star of David formation, with Saturn as a leg of the Neptune-Jupiter water trine and the moon along with Pluto and Venus in the earth signs. This formation, which in ancient times indicated the imminent anointing of a king, represents the auspicious hour for the drawing down and anointing of the Messianic Point Within Ourselves, the etheric soul and akashic soul record which is in total unity with the Source all of Being. To reach this point, the new moon gives us new energies to accept the withdrawals and challenges in our lives as evolutionary impetuses, enabling us to rise to other planes of existence while in the material world, and interpret the events in our lives as codes from the gods, alchemizing hardship into blessing, assisted by Jupiter newly reborn in Cancer, providing foundational trust of the process, and our efforts on the earthly plane, the earth signs where the moon and Venus will land, giving voice and power to our prayers.
The Star of David represents the harmony of water and earth, masculine and feminine, human and divine, and the balance between our efforts in prayer, reaching up to the divine realms, and intuition and embodiment, receiving the information we need to step into the divine plan. This alignment will kick off the buildup of the joyous period of the Hebrew calendar–the second half of Av (Leo), the introspective and spiritually auspicious month of Elul (Virgo), the celebratory month of Tishrei (Libra), and on through Chanukah, the winter solstice and the sequence of unprecedented alignments of 2014 and 2015, preparing the world for new waves of consciousness to take root and for the world to become pregnant with divine purpose …and may she have an easy birth!
Today (Friday) is the first day of the dawning of unity consciousness that has never been experienced before–not even by the Divine itself. The awareness that will unfold in the coming moments, hours, days, weeks, months and years is the culmination of all of human history and the very purpose of Creation. Let’s take a look at the chart for this momentous day (noon, 28 October 2011, Jerusalem):
A few comments on the chart:
1) Neptune and Chiron in 1st first house: If this was a person’s chart, I would say that this person’s identity will be excavated only through deep processes of spiritual healing, in which spiritual growth accelerates healing and vice versa, throughout life, while all the time amassing robustness of personality and self-knowledge, even though they may be delayed until the fruits of healing blossom. This person’s sense of self in this sense would be almost retrospective, realizing who they have become, only in light of how far they have come, while the needle-point of their personality in this moment will be a sort of blind spot, hidden by the burden of soul demands and healing processes churning deep within almost incessantly. Since we are talking about a global scale, and not just an individual person, we may say that the changes which are going to be taking place during this time may happen with an initial lack of self-consciousness, in the sense that they may whisk us away into new modes of being without our even realizing the massive tidal waves of change taking place within and without. It’s almost as if the news will be reporting that a new dawn has broken, but it will be in the guise of normalcy, such that only if we painstakingly compare one moment to the next we will realize the magnitude of what is taking place. This comparing however, is altogether unneccessary, as the level of self-consciousness that we are used to having of events and change is miniscule compared to the awareness that is being birthed through the changes that are unfolding. In other words, it may be better if we do not take diligent notes of what is happening, because the ‘we’ that is taking these notes is exactly what is dissolving into purer form. We will not lose our individuality, in the same way that a person with Neptune and Chiron in the 1st does not lose themselves; rather, the reigns are given over to the deeper, wiser and eternal forces that stimulate expansion and healing. The fact that Chiron is in Pisces only accentuates the fogginess that will be felt, but the guideline is the same: there is a light that is strong enough to shine in this fog, and that is what we are looking for, rather than try to make our dim lights try to penetrate that which is more refined, we keep our eyes out for the rays that carry the vibration of all that we are yearning for and all that we have been promised for eternity.
2) Neptune and Chiron opposite Mars in Leo in the 7th house: Counter to the sense of losing ourself in foggy, confused, amorphous anticipation is a strong, direct and bold desire to exert ourselves and be seen, to shine in our glory and to move forward with precision and selfhood. Could these two impulses be any more opposed? Not really. Moreover, they are both aggravated by an incessant probing energy, seeking to go deeper and deeper into every conflict, tension and potential minefield, by the Mercury-Venus-Moon stellium in Scorpio (10th house). Deep emotional and mental probing, questioning and circling, a loss of a limited sense of self in the onset of higher dimensions of being and becoming, and a persistent desire to be seen, accepted and loved for all that we are–these make up the heated T-square of the day. The answer to balancing these energies may life in the realms of creativity and grounding, embodied by Taurus in the 4th house of home, and Gemini in the 5th house of creativity and children. Strive to be like a child, give up trying to take notes and keep track, be who you are in the moment with less censorship, and let the processes carry themselves out. You may find that traditional, biologically-evolutionary linked activities such as cooking, cleaning, putting things in their place, marking territory, and gathering with your tribe, are comforting and reassuring. Just be sure to let your streak of individuality reign free in all that you do. This will be your breath of fresh air, in every moment.
3) Saturn in Libra may be what saves the day, exerting an all-too-necessary force of restraint and balance on these pressure points in the chart. Everything is being weighed and accounted for, everything is finding its place — parts of ourselves within, parts of our lives, nations across the world, and all the words themselves. While our instinct may be to accelerate all forces of healing and probe to the depths and salvage all that we can, there is a force in the background that is ever-present and ever-aware of the natural place of all things, of the perfection of being that vibrates calmly and radiates balance and harmony. Because of this, all of our busy-bee running around may be necessary to prove to ourselves that something is happening…but once we realize and affirm the newness of what is becoming, then everything may in fact become quite calm. Almost like a two-year-old having a tantrum; the moment they realize that they are seen, they can revert to carefree joy and content as if nothing had ever ticked them in the first place. Find your pillars and stability and stillness–these as always will be precious footholds on the mountain stretching up to the heavens before you.
Blessings on your journey,
