Solstice Space Weather Forecast & the Meteorological Signs

CROP ALERT!

Huge crop formation appeared June 14th in Camponogara, Province of Venezia (Venice), Italy

June in Britain has been—so far—a disappointment, with farmers’ fields almost a month behind in growth. The crop circle season, therefore, has also lagged behind. So, when the first really eye-popping vision of a ‘classic’ crop circle appeared in sun-drenched barley in northern Italian province of Venezia, ten miles west of the floating city, at Camponogara, all eyes in Croppiedom were on the new design: a ‘Pokémon’ ball, an alarm button? what was the crop circle Deva trying to alert us to?

One has the feeling that the Earth, herself, is seeking our attention, and expressing her messages through the most available resource she has: ripening grain.

Golden Ball Hill CC appeared on solstice, June 20, 2012 in Vale of Pewsey, Wilts. Visitors not encouraged.

The British contingent was distraught: the English CC season had been what Brits call ‘difficult’, ‘flaming’ June struggling against weather conditions which would test the most stalwart rain-lover. There were distractions: the full moon of June 4th produced an annular solar eclipse; with a rare Venus transit next day; both witnessed by millions (in person; via livestream, internet, image bottom). So, perhaps encouraged by signs in the skies, the four small early-June crop appearances in Wiltshire were seen, not as a sad flop, but merely a prelude to what croppies now look for in the Solstitial Message—the manifestation of multiple—and meaningful—crop circles during solstice week.

Most memorable, and as yet undecyphered, is the Milk Hill Astrolabe, with coded vanes and tail, of solstice, 2009.

But it is interesting that 2012′s solstice duo should appear to flank the same heart-shaped wood which featured on solstice, June 21, 2010, when its code was quickly interpreted to show the precise calculation of Phi, 1.1618, the Golden Mean, the Fibonacci sequence, around which all Nature and organic growth spirals.

And so, the enigma continues.

While deeply disconcerting for Stowell Farms—the Oare Wiltshire farmer who still believes designs are made by local ‘vandals’, and bemoaned this week being ‘recipient’ of two circles overnight on solstice night—the croppie community (with growing internet support group) have had their appetite assuaged, delighted by timely aerial images of both the Vale of Pewsey, Wiltshire and another two in the Vale of Severn, 55 miles due north, in Shropshire. This came as a double surprise: rural Shropshire—ancient Salop—between the awful human morass of Wolverhampton and the stark natural glacial outcrop of the Wrekin, is where hamlets connect through leafy lanes, and rolling fields are still hemmed in by copses (coppices) in olde worlde style, but where—sadly—an indelicately-managed takeover of Ancient Forest lands by corporate behemoth UK Coal, has come up against significant protest from the naturalist and wildlife lobby in its (ongoing) opencast coal extraction pits at Telford, within sight of the Wrekin, and within one mile of both solstice crop circles, at Malthouse Farm June 20th, and its predecessor at Wenlock Wood, June 17th. Wenlock Wood orbs, image below, lead the eye to their Malthouse companion CC one mile distant; while it reciprocates in highlighting a field telegraph pole whose wires lead west to Wenlock Wood. Both have additional meteorological symbol hooks, which point north to the coal extraction dumps.

Much Ado About Little Wenlock

Both Wenlock crop circles feature weather feather symbolism: Wenlock Wood figure, left—a weather feather—clearly points from the mast on Wenlock Hill towards Little Wenlock and the solstice formation at Malthouse. Both Malthouse Farm and Wenlock Wood designs triangulate over one mile north to the protesters’ Treesit Camp in the middle of one-thousand-year-old Limekiln Wood, Short Wood and Birch Coppice—now being razed by the Coal conglomerate, after being stalled for four years by public opinion. Their ‘restoration plan of pasture and parkland’ promises a return to lark song and mountain views sometime between 2014-2017, but millennium-old oak, and companion natural birch and pine, are gone forever.

405-ft East Field ‘weather feather’ crop circle July 11, 1990 was first of the modern designs to manifest at Alton Barnes

The four-year campaign to protect countryside of ‘outstanding natural beauty’ may not have hit international headlines (coal interests saw to that), but clearly the crop circlemakers felt a need to highlight the plight of irreplaceable natural hinterland of the Severn headwaters, the traditionally-sacred Wrekin*, and the 140-mile Shropshire Way walkers’ and naturalists’ haven, as part of their ongoing subliminal support of getting us thinking like the Back-to-Nature movement.

*On a side-note: the Wrekin, while elevated in ‘recent’ geologic time to its present 1,335-ft, was formed in a primordial (Silurian) tropical sea 425 million years ago, whose coral fragments may still be found along the paths of the Way. An Iron-Age double-entrance enclosure on its sacred summit is locally known as Hell Gate (outer) and Heaven Gate (inner). Nearby fifteen-mile-long Wenlock Edge is one of the finest limestone escarpments in England, supporting wild meadows of endangered cowslip, rare orchids and helleborine. Electromagnetically-speaking, its limestone-permeated soil and alkaline aquifers are ideally suited to conduct subterranean waveforms which appear to be directly associated with crop circle formation.

‘Out of the confusion of a crumbling society, will emerge individuals who are touched by higher guidance. They will inevitably flow together with others of like inspiration, and a new quality of society will begin to form. This is the true adventure of our time’
Sir George Trevelyan, founder Wrekin Trust

The Wrekin Trust was formed in 1971 by long-time Findhorn Foundation patron, Sir George Trevelyan (1906-1996). He was known in Britain as Grandfather of the New Age Movement, and lived his life according to Earth’s own natural laws, guidance and intuition. He spoke to the ‘Nature spirits’—Pan in particular—and pioneered the teaching of spiritual knowledge as part of adult education. It seems appropriate that 2012 Wrekin Trust Forum is entitled ‘Toward a Planetary Consciousness’.

But, back to weather portents!

“Crop Circles are formed by descending energetic vortices from the atmosphere, a vortex of air which is ionised to the point at which it is better regarded as a species of low-density cool plasma, producing a high-energy electromagnetic field.”
Plasma Vortices Theory, Prof. G. Terence Meaden, Univ. of Oxford Adult Education Archaeologist, Meteorologist and Head of TORRO Tornado Research

Adult educator, Dr Terence Meaden’s Plasma Vortices Theory describes how a rotating mass of electrically-charged air (sometimes reported as a UFO) might form from certain weather conditions, interacting with topographical features in the landscape. It would explain the malfunction of electronic equipment, orb sightings and hundreds of personal testimonies by people experiencing ‘altered consciousness’, within a ‘genuine’ crop circle.

Researcher Ed Sherwood witnessed scores of orbs—his ‘dragon energy‘—during his three years of living near Alton Barnes, and is convinced optimum weather conditions produce the best circles.

“Of the 56 (orbs) that I saw between 1992 and 1996 while living within three miles of East Field (one of England’s most prodigious crop circle sites), 31 looked ‘plasma-like’: luminous, diffusely edged ‘fire balls’ that materialised in a variety of colours, though most often amber, or ‘Golden’, and/or red; and 29 of those occurred in the same weather conditions, characterised by calm stable air, high pressure, high humidity, and low to no wind speed.” Ed Sherwood ‘Meteorological connection to Crop Circles.’

The appearance of the latest circle on ‘Golden Ball Hill’ seems to mirror his experience with dragon energy, and his report is worth reading.

On the edge of last year’s August 15th Jubilee Plantation crop formation, the mysterious symbol likened to a ‘weather feather’ may have predicted a deluge for England during her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations ten months later

It is tempting to speculate that among the final patterns of last year was a message to prepare us for the wet season of 2012. In hindsight, Jubilee Plantation’s weather-feather at Cherhill, right, now looks like a sure sign predicting a downpour for Her Majesty’s June 3rd Royal Barge procession down the Thames during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Now, with several more meteorological signs appearing, perhaps what the crop circle community senses is somewhat like a playback of one’s own dream/ideas rerun at a different speed, or rewound over slightly antiquated equipent, using symbols which only graze our consciousness, begging to be interpreted. ‘Croppies’—from all walks of life—tend to be imaginative, creative, open-minded, spiritually-adventurous—and communicative—people, so this synergy combined with the internet’s rapid evolution, provides a myriad platforms for transmitting ideas.

And if embryo group consciousness is taking hold, perhaps the CC community is first up to bat…

There is much material available on dimensional reality, the concept of multiple or parallel universes; and the idea of ‘possibilities’ existing alongside one’s choices—until we pick a course that becomes our ‘reality’—is no longer an esoteric subject for rarified discussion. Over (at least) the last three seasons, we have been shown images of dimensions beyond what was previously thought to be ‘real’. We are mesmerized by corn magic, as successive optical illusions, created as 2D images, viewed from above—through the magic of video/computer screens—provide instant mantra: living room meditation. For a moment it seems not at all eccentric to see Lucy Pringle’s tadpoles, left, as messages swimming through the limestone aquifer, the energy matrix, towards our greater enlightenment of this amazing phenomenon.

Before the Italian design (top) and the meteorological glyphs came to taunt us, the first Wiltshire crop circle in barley appeared June 2nd at Manton Grove in the form of a polar clock, giving wired croppies fodder for debate and a ‘date’ to focus on: Saturday August 4th, at either 18:45:50 or 19:43:53, depending on interpretation. In computer/screen saver ‘polar clocks’, convention dictates that the outermost ring denotes time in seconds. It has been speculated that on Saturday evening, August 4th, the Finals of both Men’s and Women’s Athletics will take place in London’s Olympic Stadium; and this would tie in well with the current media trend of overstuffing the population with visual entertainment—the equivalent of Roman ‘bread and circuses’—but, like the later Shropshire circles, a telephone pole at Manton Drove seems chosen deliberately as a focal point; then one recalls that Cotswold-born Charles Wheatstone (1802-1875), inventor of the polar clock, was also instrumental in the development of early telegraph systems and a major contributor to Spectroscopy: which is the study of the interaction between matter and radiated energy.

Now everything seems to be concerned with the interface between matter and radiating energy! If crop circles have opened up the field for group imagination and shared consciousness to express itself, then excitement generated makes them ideal chambers of consciousness, exquisitely decorated multi-dimensional motifs which trigger a range of human emotion: from anger through devoted care through spontaneous healing and revelation. Some chambers seem to ripen as the season advances, as the grain within them also matures. Let us hope that implies hope for the human race.

Some amazing conclusions have already been reached by the croppie following, which do have concensus in their peer group. We shall have to wait and see if these new meteorological portents have relevance to just the earthly dimension, or whether the 2012 season is about to be shocked into reality by space-weather, too. With the runup to solar maximum (2013) and increasing frequency of electromagnetic plasma flares and CMEs heading in our direction, perhaps telephone/power lines highlighted in recent formations point to consequent telegraph/communications disruption, which would affect us all. If we add that variable to the dragon’s brew we are concocting, are we prepared for the consequences?

Alternatively, if we stood up now, as one, and demanded solar power, pollution-free energy, even Tesla’s free lightning generators, as the circlemakers suggest, would we be able to change our own future, in time to save it from such a calamity?

Vesica Piscis: Mother Earth and the Creative Force

August 7, 2011

The symbol of an ovoid –an egg– expresses the the primordial form of everything manifest, from atom to globe, from man to angel. The spheroid is with all nations the emblem of eternity and infinity —- a serpent swallowing its own tail. To realize the meaning, however, the sphere must be thought of as seen from its centre
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine

The Vesica Piscis in sacred tradition — from Kabbalist to Vedic to Zen — is considered to represent the female organ of creation. Its circular shape invokes an intertwining of feminine energies, Mother Earth’s womb, a mingling of Nature and primeval cultural reverence: it is a symbol seen in all ancient graphical traditions, from pagan Sun Wheel, Celtic cross, architectural ‘golden mean‘ to sacred windows in cathedrals, mosques, tabernacles and pagodas.

The Vesica Piscis also represented to the Maya the summer and winter solstices in any time cycle. To them the Vesica Piscis shape held the Cycle of the Ages — the Precession of the Equinoxes, less of a calculation of Time; more as a symbol of evolution of consciousness. We are experiencing this change now as we move from one World Age (Christian Age of Pisces, 0BC-AD2000) to another (‘New Age’ of Aquarius).

Its Latin meaning, lit. bladder of the fish, may seem to lessen its sacred quality to the prosaic, but it remains connected in a bodily way and in the geometric sense in all cultures — East and West.

Antediluvian Meaning
In earliest traditions, the supreme being was represented by a sphere, the symbol of a Creator with no beginning and no end, continually existing, perfectly formed and profoundly symmetrical. The addition of a second sphere represented the expansion of unity into the duality of female and male. By overlapping, both spheres — goddess and god — created a divine offspring. The Vesica Piscis with its derivatives, the Flower of Life, Tree of Life, and fundamentals of geometry, has a history of thousands of years, easily predating all major religions of the current era.

A theme running through several recent crop circle seasons — most striking from 2007 on — has been the suggestion by the ‘Circlemakers’ that we return to the wisdom of our roots: roots in our native Earth, roots of our tradition, our sacred beginnings. Since it is presently clear to almost anyone in the Western World that in pursuing our headlong drive for power, riches and exploitation over balance, human warmth and respect for the earth, we have gone seriously awry. It might seem that our combined consciousness — that deep level of awareness we share beneath the cultural façade; what Terence McKenna called Humanity’s Oversoul — has chosen to ‘wake us up’ by bringing us (those genuine electromagnetically-produced) crop circles each year, to educate us and lead us gently towards a more loving future.

Perhaps, therefore, we should not be surprised by the ingenuity and wry sense of humor of the Circlemakers.

For instance, this year in May — while we were all looking forward rather than looking at the miracles of the season — a quiet little ring appeared in green barley at East Kennet. It lay within one field’s breadth (roughly 10 acres) of one of Wiltshire’s most ancient shrines — the Neolithic tomb (long barrow) of West Kennet. Several 5,000-year old monuments lie — inter-visible — in this densely-built Neolithic landscape within two miles of Avebury’s Great Stone Circles.

Stonehenge and its magical meridian (51ºN) aside, the modern British are not particularly drawn to ancient shrines for their sacred quality, but crop circles — appearing within the same landscape and overlying the same limestone aquifer that produces measurable electromagnetic resonance (likened to human meditational alpha waves) — have been drawing them in. Nobody who has spent time in a pristine formation can deny it holds an ‘atmosphere’, an energy which can be uplifting, almost surreal. There is a growing body of evidence that crop circles are indeed produced through the medium of light and sound.

When the East Kennet circle first appeared, Stuart Dike, one of the long-time stalwarts of CropCircleConnector, crop circle ‘bible’, said at the time:


It certainly takes me back to over twenty years ago, from the 1990 days in Wiltshire. This is what we were all used to seeing back then, very simple designs, with a sense of excitement of what they could become. It’s a great indication that the earlier designs are very much part of what’s occurring today: the precursor of what was to be an evolutionary road in geometry and complexity. Perhaps the phenomenon is telling us not to ignore the purity of what was occurring at the very beginning.

Little did we know that the Circlemakers had further plans for that small field. One month later, during excitement of solstice and a profusion of appearances (2 at Stonehenge + 4 more in the vicinity over a 2-day period), nobody seemed to notice that East Kennet had acquired three concentric rings (June 22).

Then exactly a month after that, on July 22, attention focused on the intricate and superb ‘spider-web’ headdress formation which appeared in an adjoining field (East Kennet-2). There followed in quick succession two exceptionally graphic ‘suggestive’ crop designs at Roundway (1 & 2, July 23 & 25) –appearing to advocate humanity’s opening its third eye, releasing the body’s natural happiness hormone, melatonin– so, once again a little mirror appearance the same day — at West Kennet Long Barrow itself this time, next to the passage grave — seemed less than significant.

Working behind the scenes are a multitude of local altruistic researchers (CCC, above, is one of many). Their common bond is that they believe that ‘genuine’ crop circles are phenomena somehow produced through an electromagnetic or dimensional medium, either by light, sound or other variants within that vast spectrum. Sometimes, when local conditions are just right, a substance colloquially known as ‘angel hair’ (documented as being found after UFO sightings) has been deposited and can be measured, if collected within the first few hours after a formation has been laid down. Researchers in this field include the Massachusetts-based BLT, the British Harmony Blue group, and the CircularSite in the Netherlands,. They are consequently disappointed and nonplussed by world media efforts to persevere in ‘replicating’ crop circles, as has been tried on several occasions. Research on the dimensional/spiritual nature of real crop circles continues. On the morning the West Kennet circle motif appeared, the HarmonyBlue team found angel hair in the West Kennet formation (‘spiderweb’ photo, above).

There is even the suggestion — by the much more charismatic ‘spider-web’ crop appearance at East Kennet on July 22 — that the Circlemakers were telling them where to look!

Sacred geometry

The Vesica Piscis is the root principle in sacred geometry, interlocking circles which share radii, cosmically and intrinsically entwined. In precise mathematical measurement, where the circumference of each shares the center of the other, the ratio between the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3, or approximately 1.7320508…

A mathematical sub-note: if straight lines are drawn between the centers of both circles with each other and with the two points where their circumferences intersect, two equilateral triangles can be formed, joining along an edge.

Eye of consciousness, complete with eyelashes! Crop circle at Silbury Hill, Avebury August 2, 2011


Archimedes of Syracuse, 287-212BC, Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer, in his On the Measurement of the Circle, used these ratios:

In Christian tradition this sacred number –153– appears miraculously in the Gospel of John [21:11] as the number of fishes which Jesus of Nazareth caused to be manifested in the Feeding of the Multitude story. Since all Judaic written (Biblical) tradition centered on sacred number, numerological sequence and coded word combinations/number of letters used, this coincidence has a deeper meaning. The Fish — Lat. Piscis — is well-known as the secret symbol used by the Early Christians in Rome. By enumerating the total catch on the Sea of Gallilee, specific use of that sacred geometric ratio would have had meaning to early followers, aware of the significance of number.


Probably the best known example in England of the Vesica Piscis is the design on the wellcover of the Sacred Chalice Well at Glastonbury. While we are now culturally ignorant of number, this design resonates with us on a subliminal level (internal balance) and, seen there in a New Age context, represents the Universal symbol of the Feminine, Mother Earth, in contrast with the nearby masculine emblem of Glastonbury Tor. The Glastonbury example on the lid of the Chalice well — like the crop circle at Wayland’s Smithy (top) — contains the meridian line that runs through the centers of both circles.

Even though this archaic symbolism may not seem relevant to some after so many aeons of time, it is not unrealistic to suppose that our cultural unconscious, even blurred and insensitized by modern inconsequential minutiae in massive overdose, does at some deep level sense peace, harmony and beauty when we behold this sacred design.


Egyptian Celestial and Sacred Measure

We owe the Egyptians for the application of Sacred Geometry on the surface of the Earth.

Cosmic serpent-of-Life returning to its birth canal at the center of the Galaxy in 2012 -- West Woodhay Down, Inkpen crop circle July 29th, arrived as a prelude to the August 4th glyph (top), the Cosmic birth canal itself

Geo-metry means ‘measure of the earth’. In ancient Egypt, from which Greece and eventually the West inherited the study, the Nile would flood its banks each year, obliterating orderly demarcation of plot and farm areas. This annual inundation symbolized to the Egyptian the cyclic return of primal watery chaos, and when the waters receded the work began of redefining and re-establishing boundaries. The temple astronomer might announce that celestial configurations had changed so the orientation or location of a temple had to be adjusted. It was seen as regaining law and order, dominion over the earth. The laying of squares upon the earth had, for the Egyptian, a metaphysical as well as a physical and social dimension. This activity of measuring the earth – ‘geo-meter’- became the basis for a science of natural law embodied in the archetypal forms of circle, triangle and square.

Plato at his Academia required the study of mathematics as a prerequisite for philosophia, a term signifying “the love of wisdom” and “to lift the soul to truth.” To him, symbolic mathematics provided a map of our own inner psychological and sacred spiritual structure. Through the study of recurring harmonious patterns inherent in mathematics, music, and nature, ancient mathematical philosophers recognized that consistent correspondences occur inside the human mind and simultaneously throughout the universe.

Sacred geometric shapes: circle, triangle, square

This Zen calligraphic drawing shows Creation through the simple progression from the unity of the circle, through the triangle, to the manifest form of the square.

The circle –one– and the vesica piscis –two– were considered by ancient mathematical philosophers to be the parents of Number. Their firstborn, the triangle –three– was the ‘first’ and eldest number. Its geometric expression, the equilateral triangle, is the initial shape to emerge through the portal of the vesica piscis, the First of the Many. The square –four– was the second born.

Alpha and Omega
Mathematics and sacred geometry can take us beyond our ordinary limits to cosmic depths.

Furze or Morgan Hill, Bishops Cannings, August 6th dimensional progression on the Vesica Piscis: two cosmic parents produce a dimensional child

Man –from the Sanskrit root manas, meaning ‘Mind’, Consciousness, is a creature who can reflect upon himself. Man is not a mere constituent part –a cog– in this Universal Cycle, but he is both the final complete product of evolution and the original seed potential out of which the Universe germinated. The Alpha as well as the Omega. Both the seed and the tree: the tree of the universe is the actualization of the seed potential, which is Cosmic Man.

The World Tree of the Maya now begins to make sense. Mayan cosmology saw the Rift in the Milky Way as the the female birth canal (Yoni, Vesica Piscis) to which the Serpent of Life returns in December 2012.

Spiraling towards Source

CCC denizen Dike may have had a premonition when he said (above) that ‘the (CC) phenomenon is telling us not to ignore the purity of what was occurring at the very beginning’. Without realizing it, he may have been referring to the very beginning of Time. As we spiral onwards through the Galaxy towards our 2012 rendezvous with that primeval birth canal, we are indeed completing a cycle, coming to our ending, but also returning to our beginning.
