Equinox: Stargate Portal to 2012 Final Quarter

September 26, 2012

Inca portal of Amaru Muru at Hayu Marca, which is believe to give access to the world of serpent wisdom and interdimensional travel

Last weekend the sun stood, as it does on both equinoxes—March 21st, September 22nd—directly overhead on earth’s equator, before making its (apparent) journey southward towards the tropic of Capricorn, where it will stand on winter solstice—S.hemisphere midsummer—on December 21st, 2012. For one day and night, everyone on planet earth experienced a twelve-hour day* and twelve-hour night, with sunrise due east and sunset due west. From now on, days in the northern hemisphere will appear dramatically shorter. If that were not enough to make the most avid outdoorsman turn inwards for consolation, the end of the British crop circle season would appear to be a done deal.

*allowance is made for sunrays appearing before ‘dawn’, giving longer daylight at some latitudes.

The sacred ritual Tzolkin calendar of the Maya, often used for divination, predicted long ago that, during these ten days/ten consecutive portals which came in succession between September 11th and equinox eve, September 21st, 2012, our planet would stand in a space unencountered before in our time on earth: a space some would call interdimensional: a time to communicate with our higher selves; elevating each other, strengthening ourselves within the vibrational window.

Because there were portal parameters within which to work, perhaps it encouraged more people to try: the crop circle community certainly went at it, alongside others, which in turn augmented the surrounding energy.

Ten days ago, before Equinox, a lot of people were feeling it; writing about it in blogs. And the New Age section of Twitter seemed to pick up on it, spiritual tweets flowing daily with advice on personal development and support. For a period of ten days the internet seemed to take on a positive, enhancing shield: allowing input/expression and growth. What fun.

Language of Light embedded in crop circle code? Light on Hackpen Hill formation August 26th, 2012, now considered the “conduit closing” message of the season: full of cross-cultural clues, hints, pointers

Even more exciting is that several traditions are colliding at this time, each with its own calendrical calculation, meaning, and mantra. The Judaic calendar counted entry into the year 5773 on Monday September 17th, Rosh Hashanah, followed by even more sacred Yom Kippur, September 26th, the Day of Atonement. In the Roman Catholic—and indeed Judaic/Coptic calendar—Archangel Michael’s feast follows on September 29th, Michaelmas.

Of all world calendars, the Hebrew count, begun in c.3800BC, is the most reliable, predictable counter of Time. Julius Caesar’s calendar of early Rome—the Julian—updated and corrected only two years before he died in 44BC, lasted for fifteen centuries, until it started losing days (how careless) and was superseded by the Gregorian Calendar of 1582, currently in use by the western world. By embedding leap years, it succeeded in tightening up the anomaly with the solar year, from which it now differs by only 26 seconds.

Calendars of ancient Egypt, dating from the Old Kingdom (2780 – 2250BC), are seldom quoted these days, but the sacred tablets of the Pharoahs and temple inscriptions indicate deep understanding of the workings of the heavens, of creation, space-time, and, most revealing of all, the measurement of the precession of the equinoxes: which all early cultures recognized as marking divisions in the celestial sphere, as accurately as the minute hand on a grandfather clock.

Zep Tepi: Beginning of Time [First Time]
Ancient texts, such as the (much-maligned) Hebrew/Aramaic Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Egyptian ‘Knowledge of Thoth’, insist that we humans are destined to become gods; that from their Zep Tepi—Dawn of Time—literally First Time—we were programmed to evolve beyond our present terrestrial form. The Egyptian god spoke of the Star Walkers, individuals who, like Enoch, traveled beyond the Great Eye of Orion [out of the program] and returned, to walk like gods amongst men. Such evolved humans are comparable with the ‘Lords of Light’ of the Maya, Sumerian Nephilim or Anunnaki—”those who from Heaven to Earth came”—and the Tibetan Shining Ones/Dakini.

Enochian texts suggested that regular cataclysmic changes would act as evolutionary agent provocateur, to quicken resident life forms into taking the next evolutionary step—prior to exodus from the womb planet, or creational egg.

According to many world legends, the Zep Tepi returns at the beginning and end of each time cycle, the 13,000 year half-point of our solar system’s 26,000-year zodiacal orbit around galactic center, seen in the precession of the equinoxes. Because of conditions in our galactic orbit, these 13,000 year intervals or ‘worlds’ appear separated by cataclysmic upheaval, ongoing throughout history.

So it is a revelation to discover that, alongside the Long Count Calendar of the Maya, the calendar-in-stone of the Great Pyramid—or ‘Phoenix Cycle’ of our galactic orbit, in Gregorian time, converted—reveals that their predicted end-time also falls on December 21st, 2012.

Compared with these, the Long Count calendar of the Maya, founded in 3114BC, now 5126 years old, a combination of cosmology and the measurement of Man’s evolution, is the most romantic and prophetic of ancient counting systems. Alongside their sacred, ritual Tzolkin and the solar/fiscal Haab, the Longcount is the most cosmically satisfying. Its dramatic predictions have gained a huge fanbase during 2012, ranging from a most evocative Native American cultural resurgence, to the outlandish/misleading Apolcalypse Now scenario.

The four faces of the nine-stepped pyramid of El Castillo, dedicated to Kukulcán at Chichén Itzá, Yucatán is divided into 4×91 steps = 364, plus the common top step = 365 days = 1 solar year

It is no surprise, then, that on equinox again this year thousands gathered at Chichén Itzá in present-day Yucatán to watch sunset. Guatemala is Maya heartland, Yucatán, its former spiritual home (now within Mexico), where on equinox, twice every year the magical serpent of light (Sun) weaves its snakelike form down (September) and up (March) the step-pyramid El Castillo’s rampart outline against the sky; hundreds of neighboring Guatemalan and Mexican visitors attended the sunset ceremony on equinox, September 22nd this year.

Looking back on the 2012 season, it is remarkable that something we wrote in 2010 applies this year, too:

The (crop circles) brought us dimensions beyond those we’re accustomed to thinking in, sacred geometry and energy vortices and power places known to all previous civilizations, but somehow ‘lost’ to our own: magical light orbs and mysterious high-pitched sound accompanying the formation of a circle or even group meditative ‘requests’ for such a crop appearance.

Serpent Symbolism in World Myths

2012 brought to light a much deeper cultural myth, however: the cosmic intervention of the Serpent. Debased in Judaeo-Christian ethos as pagan ignorance, belief of a common (peasant) mentality—and blamed for Man’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden for suggesting knowledge gained from the Tree of Life—the serpent/dragon/kundalini energy nevertheless has come back to ‘educate’ us: literally [Latin, e-ducere=]to lead us out from our mindless state of cultural ignorance—into the Light.

It is not as if ancestral serpent wisdom has not been trying to alert us: the Egyptian pharaoh-god-king habitually wore the uraeus as a symbol of divine knowledge; modern physicians are represented by the caduceus, the staff of their lengthy studies entwined with the serpent imparting its wisdom. The dragon is totem for all oriental cultures, and even English hero, St George, is depicted as slaying his own dragon (of so-called pagan ignorance). Italian culture used serpent symbolism, as did the Romans, and the Greek Ouroboros famed as representing Mankind undulating forth around the Earth, only to return to seek its own beginnings.

To the Maya, however, and possibly—while little understood—to the indigenous cultures of North America as represented by the Adena people, above—the serpent of wisdom-knowledge-enlightenment-consciousness is one who seeks to return not only to ancient ways, but to its own birth canal; the Maya sacred tree, which grows in the dark chasm at the center of the Milky Way, the birth canal—Vesica Piscis—to which its child, the Sun, solar system and all earth-dwellers will return on winter solstice 2012.

So, if the latest equinoctial surprise in Ohio, above, of a crop circle of serpent-tadpoles emulating the serpent-alien theme that decked Wiltshire fields in profusion all summer, has come to give us a final message at the end of the season, it is perhaps this: as stated in the now famous crop circle of Chilbolton 2002:

Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts and their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. BELIEVE. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. conduit closing (bell sound)

The Ohio tadpole ring, while resonant with the Serpent Mound in neighboring Adams County, appeared within the ancient mounds of the Hopewell culture. It is now well-known within the crop circle community that several strands of consciousness, meaning and significance are embedded in such glyphs, and its occurrence at Hopewell may indeed be another message: one for the human race to BELIEVE, to hope well, to look forward to what the future has in store for us.

Almost as a postscript, comes the knowledge produced by current advances in DNA research, where studies have shown that our very cells—junk DNA—are encoded to remember who we are. Such is the golden alchemy of time and consciousness that is unfolding now before our eyes.

What culminated in the British crop circle seasonal finale—the subliminal message(s) of Hackpen interdimensional cube-within-a-portal, above—the serpent mother-Earth pictures of Picked Hill, Avebury and Woodborough, and now seen in the tadpole ring at Hopewell, Ohio, is a strand of communication now penetrating our thought patterns collectively as a culture.

If we are open to it, it appears to be a message from our own higher consciousnes: that ancestral serpent knowledge is alive and that all is well.

Vesica Piscis: Mother Earth and the Creative Force

August 7, 2011

Waylands Smithy Vesica Piscis crop circle, August 4th, 2011 -- sacred geometric co-radial circles where circumference of each shares the center of the other -- its central axis symbolizing the Cosmic Birth Canal to which, according to the Maya, all life returns in December 2012

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:

East Kennet crop design, May 17th, was ringed by extra circles June 22. If seen as the 'negative', it acquired a mirror-image 'positive' at West Kennet, July 25th 2011,

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.

Interlocking circles, Water & the Sacred Feminine: Vesica Piscis's sacred shape which seals the cover of the Sacred Chalice Well at Glastonbury, Somerset


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.
