Hogmanay—Time for Seeing Both Past and our Future

HOGMANAY—Prelude to New Year the Old Way

Here’s a wee dochan doris
Jist a wee drap, that’s aa’
A wee dochan doris
Afore ye ging awa’                    

There’s a wee wifie waitin’
At a wee but-‘n’-ben
But, if ye can say ‘it’s a braw bricht meenlichty nicht’
Ye’re aa’ richt, ye ken

We just passed winter’s shortest day.
The solstice: solar ‘standstill’, the point when the Sun appears to come to rest at the center of the galactic plane. It seems to stand on celestial equator, pausing in time, moving neither north nor south.

Four winter solstices ago, we planetary travelers collided with Galactic Center on December 21st, 2012, when the Great Cycle Calendar of the Maya comes to full rest; pause; restart.

Time and Light or Bread and Circuses
The Romans—a civilization we liken ourselves to more as time elapses—became so tired of their outdated Julian calendar, adding days, subtracting nights, that they elaborated on the earlier pagan rekindling of Saturnalia—extending a Hallowe’en thru Christmas holiday period into ten days of non-time in the run-up to January 1st and the New Year.

This respected period of utter chaos, drunken festivities, carnival and masqued balls was known as Saturnalia.

Not to be confused with current Hogmanay in Scotland.
While the Scots may already feel repercussions, there are certainly more to come—in the Empire and in now-disintegrated Scotland, Hogmanay will live forever, whatever the climate. Rhyme at top is traditional toast in broad Scots to test if you could outdrink them. Translation for dummies in comment section, below.

This year’s solstitial preparation for the New is a good time for pausing.
For all of us:

To contemplate how much we shall change in the coming year—because the Human Race is changing fast and we have changed radically in the past year—
To give thanks for the road that brought us here to this point in space and time and for this moment—before plunging into the maelstrom once more—
To bless all those immediately around us NOW—as well as our loved ones far afield—absent friends—and family gone to fresher fields—
A time to remember and a time to look forward—

Time and Light are on our side.

Χρονος Kronos was God of and out of Time, Father Time

Κρονος A Titan who killed his father Ouranos—Uranus, Roman creator god
Both confused within Roman god Saturn.

KRONOS (Roman Saturn) was the primordial Greek god of time. In the Orphic cosmogony he emerged self-formed at the dawn of creation. He was seen as discorporeal, serpentine in form, with three heads—of a man, a bull, and a lion. He and his consort, serpentine goddess Ananke—Inevitability—enveloped the primordial world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. After this act of creation the couple circled the cosmos driving the rotation of heaven and the eternal passage of time

Kronos was depicted in Greco-Roman mosaic as Aeon—Eternity personified. He holds a wheel inscribed with signs of the zodiac and Gaia—Mother Earth—reclines at his feet, right. A.D.5thC. poet Nonnus of Panopolis described Aeon as an old man with long, white hair and a beard, below, but mosaic-art presents a youthful figure—above.

The figure of Kronos was essentially a cosmological double of the Titan Kronos/Cronus—Father Time. Confusing the heirarchy, Hellenist culture sometimes merged Kronos with creator-god Phanes, and occasionally with the Titan Ophion.

Χρονος /Kronos self-created master of Time

No wonder we in the 21stC are confused. Drawn irrevocably to the madness of twelve days out of Time—just enough to feed our inner spirit, before we have to step back into the so-called real world when January hits.

ThunderSnow four inches on the Coast Range; chains required. Freezing hail in Mexico, battling a weak tropical front.

Thundersnow! Even the weather forecasters have given up; while in California, agriculture and home farmers are grateful for any seasonal precipitation, to allow the parched earth some semblance of moisture catchup, before the growing season starts all over again.

Hope for the Human Race to begin again with new resolution?

There is no Planet-B

Coal-fired industrial smog shuts down Chinese cities Beijing and Hangzhou

Even resolutions can be broken. Two years ago the Western nations agreed to a climate resolution. There are many who are doing their utmost to stick to clear healthy living, with clean healthy energy.
And there are those who are not. Marrakesh Climate Talks notwithstanding, United Airlines, one of the last American flight providers to operate within United States, as well as internationally, has closed its service to northern University town Eureka/Arcata, but has opened two new flight services to mainland China.

The mind boggles.

As does our inner spirit—watching and waiting for us to catch up with our human selves in a real grasp of what we are doing to our Pale Blue Dot—our only home—until they colonize Mars.

May we—at least some of us—wake up before that. They say seventeen is a good number.
Happy New Year.

Old Endings New Beginnings—Death and Regeneration in the Age of Scorpio

October 26, 2015

HUNTER’S MOON HERALDS CELTIC NEW YEAR
Fireworks in the Sky for Hallowe’en/Guy Fawkes

Orionids began the whole celestial fireworks show by scattering fragments of leftover comet Halley (orbit period 76 years) last Tuesday night, October 20th, as we hovered at Scorpio’s door. Ostensibly meteors came from the head and spear of Orion. The Hunter, however, forever pursuing the Pleiades through the northern sky, lies 1,344-Light-Years distant from us, while Halley’s cometary fragments skidded past within a skittish 50-miles overhead.

Halloween 2015 approaches, and with it British Guy Fawkes’s revolutionary—but foiled—attempt to blow up Parliament in 1605 Gunpowder Plot, celebrated throughout the English-speaking world. It is hard not to feel a revving up of cultural unrest, mirrored in grand scale on the celestial tapestry overhead. Following recent eclipses, planet conjunctions and lunar standstill moments to light up the sky, the Heavens continue to give us a box-office show right through our transition into autumnal Scorpio restriction, Saturnine beating our not-so-savage breast, and our cultural winding down of the Creational Clock—to primordial death.

And regeneration.

Earth’s Crustal Plates in state of Flux
It is horrific to learn of devastation caused by last weekend’s two massive 7.5-magnitude and 7.1-mag. Richter scale earthquakes, interrupting an unusual lull in quakes worldwide. Both are causing havoc and tragic loss in Hindu Kush and Vanuatu.

While in Afghanistan, fears surface that such ferocity will open subterranean faults to the Ganges and Bangladesh, Pacific plate movement in Fiji shows equivalent turmoil only 50 miles deep. Both tremors were forecast.

Algol as Demon Star
Media traditionally tries to displace or make light of world tragedy by focusing attention on the cultural caricature. The current fave demon star is Beta Persei, otherwise known as Algol in the constellation Perseus. The star’s archaic name comes from the Arabic for ‘head of the ghoul’, or ‘head of the Demon’, because it appears to die and come back to life.

Why did early stargazers name this dual star for a ghoul—demon? Beta Persei, otherwise Algol or the Ghoul Star* was known to flicker. Ghoulishly, it was also seen in folktale as Medusa’s hair. Entwined within a legend of a star that fades and returns mysteriously from the Realm of the Dead.

Sound familiar?

Ancient astronomers calculated its rhythm and guessed—rightly—that its twin star system, with the dimmer of the two bodies passing in front of the brighter, has a regular beat. It causes Algol to shine in spurts—to pulsate. So, throughout the ancient world, Algol was seen as a demon or monster, who, as we know, is the Devil’s familiar. Centuries of observation have proved Arab astronomers’ calculations. 2015 Astronomy forecast is for Algol to reach minimum brightness late Friday night, October 30th 2015 at 11:52 p.m. in central U.S.A. (October 31st 04:52 Universal Time).

*To find the Ghoul Star: look for constellation Perseus—cuddling Andromeda—in the northern evening sky. Perseus lords over the northeast sky, above the bright star group Capella and The Kids (lower left of Perseus) and the Pleiades star cluster (lower right).

Greek and Roman culture associated the star with the Head of Medusa, monster-woman, whose fearful countenance struck a man to stone. Snakes in place of her hair were additional encouragement not to stare.

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 2.09.58 PMWhen the dimmer of the two stars passes in front of the brighter, Algol shines at minimum brightness. Astro forecast calls for Algol to reach minimum brightness late Saturday, October 30th, at 11:52p.m. Central time, U.S.A. (October 31st 4:52UTC).

Ancient astronomers were fully aware of the influence the heavenly bodies’ movements had on their population. Greek and Roman culture controlled their populace by providing—not only bread and circuses—but also seer-oracles with miraculous predictions to affect their worlds.

Meteorite held as sacred fire from Heaven in sanctuary of Hellenic Oracle at Delphi and in Saudi Mecca's Inner Sanctum

Meteorite held as sacred fire from Heaven in sanctuary of Hellenic Oracle at Delphi, and in Saudi Mecca’s Inner Sanctum

A meteorite, a “Zeus-fallen thing,” was kept in the Temple of Venus on Cyprus, and another in the pre-Hellenic Temple of Apollo at Delphi, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus in Greece. In Rome, a piece of sky iron, regarded as a heavenly shield upon which the tenuous security of the state depended, was cared for and guarded by a special order of priests.

Most famous holy meteorite is called the Black Stone, Hadshar al Aswad. Mounted in silver, it sits in a place of honor in the Ka’aba, the sacred shrine at Mecca, and is circumambulated by all Muslim devotees who make the Hadj, the requisite holy pilgrimage. The sacred stone has a vulvic-shaped cleft which suggests ancient pre-Islamic goddess worship. It is attended by a phalanx of men called the Sons of the Old Woman.

Arabic and Arab culture dominated the sky: star names still bear their mystical Arabian names—their connotations striking fear in believers’ breasts. It may even put goose bumps in ours.

Algol is one of these.

To counteract all the willies, hoolies and ooeys, there is contrast—thank the Angels—in the morning sky.

If we have learned anything from last month’s astounding sky tapestry, it is that celestial cycles are never-ending. And there is a rhythm which we normally-oblivious humans can attune to—if we take the time to do that.

Lunar standstill provided the springboard for repeat eclipses, close encounters of heavenly bodies with Earth, and an awareness

    that galactic fireworks can be to us—as they were to our ancestors—a source of gratitude and awe for the Great Beyond. Now—tonight—one month farther into this miraculous heavenly cycle of an amazing year—three cycles later than Mayan predictions—we prepare for Hunters’-Harvest full Moon: closest tightest brightest full moon combination of highest tides, lowest rainfall, highest land temperatures and greatest earth movement and tectonic mayhem since the last cycle.

    Pacific plate movement is merely a reflection of crustal displacement along the Himalayan upthrust, according to NOAA and USGS. It helps to remember, however, As Above So Below. And it was independently forecast.

    Azimuth, angle and rising times coincide miraculously to give us a pre-dawn display all week until Ghoul Hour

    Ancient astronomers, students of celestial expansion and collapse, would have been amused by our (modern) human frailty and lack of vision, in midst of clear cosmic signs that all is well in Star Worlds.

    All this week—prior to and immediately after Tuesday (tonight’s) full moon, where our cultural sight should be set is perhaps less on poor old Sol, led by Saturn into Scorpio’s western clutches over the Pacific.

    Rather should we look East: Shake our culture shackles and set the alarm to get up before dawn—with Daylight Saving Time imminent—November 1st—this is an easy 6a.m.event. Then feast our eyes on three miraculous planets—Jupiter, Venus and Mars—rising in conjunction within minutes of the Sun’s brightening rays. Each dawn they can be seen, dancing a jig: vying a little each morning for position, getting closer and yet closer into a conjunction mazurka, which will separate and scatter in early November.

    Two thousand years ago, such a spectacle would have inspired pilgrims. If we suspend 21stC. disbelief, their heavenly beauty might also inspire us to pause briefly in our headlong millennial crawl over the edge.

Making the Unconscious Conscious

Inadvertent success story: Man departs San Miguel island, CA; original inhabitants move back in

Inadvertent success story: Man departs San Miguel island, CA; original inhabitants move back in

We have about a month left of Jupiter in Gemini, while the clash among the ‘social planets’—giants Uranus, Neptune and Saturn—continues. Some of us have learned over the course of a generous Jovian tenure—June 11th, 2012—June 25th, 2013—that Jupiter bestows the gift of perspective/awareness on those ready for it. It allows us to bring to the surface of our conscious mind previously unconscious models we’ve been using to give meaning to our lives.

It hasn’t been easy. Human nature—at least Culture’s left hemisphere part of the mind—abhors chaos, can’t handle not knowing what the next step is; needs the security of control. Things in the Universe have been out of control: solar flares—ongoing—freezing conditions in Europe—continuing—and, just for entertainment, an occasional asteroid fly-by within 3.6million mile radius. As for personal emotions…the mind and the heart…don’t ask. Jupiter’s influence, usually auspicious, has had its mercy strained! In addition, we should all be hugely grateful to exit the two-year grip of a celestial Grand Cross, see back commentary for June 2010-12.

And, as we like to think sidereally here, since April 25th’s full (Scorpio) moon/lunar eclipse, there has been a surfeit of ‘death’ and transformational issues. Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, is about stripping away artifice, what’s false, corrupted and diseased, so healing will begin. And since the penumbral eclipse focused mainly on the cetacean population of the southern oceans, the rest of humanity was abandoned to sort out its own chaotic-upside-down nowhere-to-turn-but-inward lives. That about cover it?

Making the Unconscious Conscious
Following two years of restriction, hemmed in like fish in a glass tank with a vision of a world beyond our reach, the astral grip is loosening. Generous Jupiter, thanks to its massive abundant visionary self, comes crashing headlong into communications master Gemini*—the Outside World—which has held the Sun and Mercury in thrall for ten days—with more to come.
Chart for New York, New York, USA May 31, 2013; 02:33:55a.m.

*Gemini, celestial twin personality: loves to see both sides, to argue black is white; hate is love in disguise; emotion is tweakable, and everybody has a mirror side, which Gemini likes to question and reveal. Gemini represents communication via media sources, frequently dual/false information, a hyper- or over-stimulated argumentative approach to resolution of difficulties, highlighted in negative focus on world crises. But it also works to enrage or incite us to action, based on our desire for fairness and individual freedom. And Jupiter, with grace, brings emotional answers to those ‘cultural’ problems.

In world—media—terms, external/societal/television attention focus on genetically modified organism [GMO] food marches in key cities across the nation over Memorial Day weekend, finally allowed the American Earthfirst movement to join the rest of the world in a groundswell towards honesty in human nutrition. The media aspect is pure Gemini. The undercurrent of wellbeing, sharing information on organically-grown alternatives to poisoned food are the workings of trustful Jupiter. Where world media ‘vampires’ rob us, by appealing to our egos, Jupiter injects faith in outcome: one-on-one kindness on a human scale, seeing both sides of the picture, empathizing with the ‘other’, meshing heart and mind; moving forward without controlling. A tall order, but the way ahead for our race, nonetheless.

Mercury, the winged messenger, ruler of Gemini, still holds supreme mental reins until he moves, along with Venus out of Gemini and into Cancer in early June.

With the present lineup (May 31st, 2013, EST) Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Gemini, all loving, spiritual, mental and physical forces are holding together to pull us through this portal of Babel. With the Moon and Neptune standing together in watery Pisces, it is likely the world Oceans are playing a major part in the transition. It feels like the last bastion of social togetherness—human heart—VENUS-and-mind-MERCURY holding out against the freezing-hard-heartedness of Saturn standing proud in deathly Scorpio, along with an equally frozen Uranus-Pluto square.

You are an infinitely powerful being, Chakra speak

You are an infinitely powerful being, Chakra speak

You are Divinely Guided and Deeply Loved

The greatest truth is that you are divinely guided through thisgreat journey called life by a higher Presence and purpose. You are just going to feel more successful, experience more love, become more abundant, have deeper peace, and feel more joy, bliss and freedom than ever before. Your life and your future is only going to get better and better and better! Accept this by taking a deep breath and inhale this information into your heart right now. Focus on feeling this expansive positive heart-felt future the first thing when you wake up each morning. Explore this sensation as reverently as you would care for your first new born child. This life is about learning how to let go of control…and letting in more gentleness and love. Just imagine that you inherited a magical pot of gold that is always pouring infinite great riches into your life every day
Mehal Rockefeller, M.D. Ph.D.

Let’s say for a moment, that this is it. The old ways have vanished or no longer work on demand. We are midway through a transition held open as a welcoming doorway by a sentient universe encouraging us to become more conscious beings: to forgive ourselves our mistakes—not constantly go back over them—but move on into flowing, un-controlling loving interaction among equals. It may sound lovely and pie-in-the-sky, but all it takes is to remember to start each day envisioning the change in one’s own life. And the more friends we share a trial run with, the more fun it becomes.

Since this blog’s relocation from one (eastern) Ocean to another (western) shore, Ascension-consciousness has been forefront in conversation, on the internet, on people’s lips. Along with the concept of purity of water, its scarcity and preciousness, California has led the U.S. in growing uncontaminated/organic natural food, while pressing antediluvian legislation for honesty in labeling [non-GMO organic] food we eat:

Life is meant to be creative and full of joyful moments. If you don’t naturally make that happen for yourself, there are yoga-wellness and self-realization technique centers in abundance, particularly where the mighty state University of California’s subsidiary branches reach. The populace sways gently with the changing tide: the metaphor applies not only to the Ocean’s hold over pre-boom fishing communities, a logging industry ‘converted’ (by local pressure) to environmentalist practices; and increased tourism (which has fractured old communities before). Small successes include the San Miguel Island nature reserve, picture top, and active treesits halting work on huge arteries by transit companies, tree felling held at bay, in respect for the planet’s last remaining virgin redwood forests and migratory birds.*

Modoc prognostication

Jupiter, ever optimistic, will rejoin his night-sky companions at the end of June to stand for two years in watery home-family-loving Cancer. July then brings a great (watery) beneficial trine—especially for Scorpios, Cancerians and Pisceans. This summer flowering, ‘opening’, allowing-through of the subconscious into the our conscious being may be led by Nature, and those lucky individuals ruled by water. There certainly have been enough predictions: that our watery friends are ready to rescue us, to lead us from prosaic left-brain bottom-line value judgments—epitomized by Gemini—into a conscious embrace of friendship, gratitude and love for our fellow travelers.

‘There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and
 swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on 
to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer
 greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let
 go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes 
open and our heads above the water.
And I say, look around and see who is in there with you and celebrate’
Hopi Elder Prophecy, Oraibi, Arizona 2000

It’s really up to us.

The Siderealview is that we have been standing at the gate since well before 2012; and the Universe, sentient, reflective of us but infinitely more loving, guiding, parental, offers us a bridge between our thoughts and feelings, waits patiently for us to wake up, to allow our subconscious to filter through into our processing mind: to let heart and brain communicate, interact.

‘Why are you so afraid of the world? Fear of the world is really fear of Love’

~ Osho

It is time to let down the barriers to love. It’s not too scary to talk intimately with another fellow being. We do it on the internet all the time. Now it’s time for real players on the real stage.

With Jupiter to give us trust in outcome, regardless of feisty Geminids, we can do it. It’s what we all came here for.

Lifting the Veil: Humanity at the Gate: Solstice 2012

November 29, 2012

Santiaguito volcano, Guatemala, September equinox 2012; Earth stirred in transition from summer to autumn

Serpentine Mind disentangles from branches of confusion uncoils its knowledge to greet the dawn and sees In the growing light
Great Colored, feathered wings
That grew unnoticed in its sleep
Understanding perfectly
In a single rush of joy
It flies above the ancient promises
Beyond where the forest lies to the Sea
The open sea
As rings around the Morning Star
Light corridors through the air
Kukulkan

During classic harvest time, a crop circle appeared on new moon August 17th/18th, predicting thirty-six days stretching from then until autumn equinox, September 22nd; and coincidentally twenty days backwards to Lammas and the Avebury masterpiece, more below.

According to some Maya present-day research, Equinox is the famed day for witnessing the serpent of light creep down its light staircase at Chichen Itza. Equinox ceremonies there are attracting increasing numbers each year on that day, and it added to the excitement this year that seven “triangles of shadow and light” appeared on the northern staircase. The August crop circles appeared to reinforce this appearace of Kukulcan.

Today, one hundred days farther on, the full moon in Gemini/Sagittarius—plus a partial lunar eclipse——may be closing one door——the end of an astronomical sky show and spectacle which the Heavens have been giving us all year—

2012 Astromical Highlights
May 4 Partial lunar eclipse, off Mexico
May 14 First standstill Venus during retrograde loop
May 20 Annular eclipse of Sun
June 6 Transit of Venus (above) and Inferior Conjunction
November 13 2012 Total solar eclipse, in which Sun and Moon align with head of the Serpent (constellation Serpens)
November 18 Solar system conjunct dark ridge Galactic Center
Nov 28 Partial (penumbral) lunar eclipse

—or a preparation for what is —more energetically— to come.

We are told by all Cultures that moments of experiencing the “Shift” are individual: that we will be taken by the Light, know if it is meant for us, that it matches our own inner right-ness, intent, and it will allow us to move on down the new path. Our spiritual senses are being honed. It is thrilling to believe the crop circles—particularly later in the 2012 seson—are showing us a kind of starmap of consciousness: in the essential original meaning of the Maya calculation of time: they appear to be more a calendar to consciousness.

Sadly, out there in television land there is a war being waged to capture our attention “in fear” and to distract us from what is happening in our inner-spiritual world.

Human consciousness is rapidly transitioning to a new state, a new intensity of awareness that will manifest as a different understanding, a transformed realization, of time and space and self.
Daniel Pinchbeck

Several years ago Michael Glickman suggested some crop circles were representative calendars or ‘maps of time’. A square within a circle in 1997, itself made up of twenty-six rows of 30 squares, the total number of squares coinciding with the number of weeks remaining from its appearance date until the end of 2012. Glickman and Pinchbeck both believe that the focus on the end of this year too marks a dimensional shift and the purpose of crop circles is to key us in to this change, and to give us clues as to how this shift in dimension will manifest itself in our world.

Thankfully, help from the crop circles has only continued to manifest and inspire us—with the magnificent series of serpent formations all summer, and the Avebury culmination, commented on in so much detail by astronomer Miguel Etchepare.

More sigificant than the development of language…
We are all aware that there is a Shift going on. In physical terms, it has taken some by storm; continents have upheaved, hurricanes have raged; and the December portal beckons.

Ken Carey writes:

The great day of purification has begun—a short but essential division that will gather those who promote fear and volence and separate them from from this Season of the World like chaff is separated from wheat at binding.
During these next two and one half decades [written in 1988] humankind will experience this separation, a transformation in human consciousness more fundamental than the development of language, more significant than the shift to agriculture, more meaningful than any historical revolution.

The dawn approaches.

What if they are all right?

Returning to Galactic Birth Canal
There has been such a plethora of celestial events, from Mars lander, to Voyager breaking through the heliosheath, to Venus transit, and potent crop circle reflections in autumn fields have echoed events, even after the crop crowd had closed down group hopes and expectations for the year.

Something in between dreaming and doing
Something arching down from there to here
We are the arching
We are neither here nor there
We are the hope that lives between
The continual blooming outward and upward
of something we want
but cannot see

The Etchepare series of videos is important to view—especially for budding astronomers or those less aware of the movement of the skies. On the Maya count, above, November 13th’s total solar eclipse brought the sun and moon to co-align with head of the Serpent (Serpens caput); while last week on November 18th, the Solar System became conjunct with the dark ridge of Galactic Center. Please read various back up blogs on Venusian cycles, significance of Galactic Center, the Maya Sacred Tree.

Each year we spin in and out of this Dark Rift: it is a cosmic sign of our balance in the system, a prelude to our annual rendezvous with Galactic Center—that dark patch in the Milky Way—when the Sun, including us, microscopic specks of energy clinging on to the plane of the ecliptic, all nine planets of our system as one, aligned again with our Motherboard-birth canal, the Creator-energy-vortex, on November 18th in the middle of our Galaxy. The portal is still open—our consciousness is being assisted before the sun spirals away one more time, and we shall head off for another year of peripatetic searching through infinite realms of space.

What is significant about Etchepare’s starmap—interpreted solely from his inspired reading of the Lammas Avebury crop circle, above, is that by associating each planet as it rises ahead of the sun just before dawn on solstice, December 21st, 2012, not only do the planets—led by Saturn, Mars, Venus guide the solar rays ahead like a plough or cosmic train of starlight and planetary bodies—along the line of the Ophiuchus’ [Serpent-bearer] arms, holding both ends of the Serpent—Serpens:caput, head, above November 13th led by Spica and the edge of constellation Virgo; pulling serpens cauda (serpent tail) after him.

But … when all these miracles have been witnessed all over the planet —various earth views are given, making it easier to understand the sky program from any earth location, including Antarctica—the dawn sun … rises from the very mouth of the Galactic Rift.

For the Maya to calculate so far in advance of their own time and to see this train of heavenly bridal veil enticing the light to re-emerge from its birth-hole—was indeed unprecedented. It is still difficult for some to comprehend such detailed knowledge of the heavens so vastly ahead in time. However, their predictions for solstice are phenomenal—to an exact celestial degree: Saturn joins Spica/Virgo to ensnare Ophiuchus, who, wrestling forever with the head and tail of the Serpent, drags—alongside Venus and Mars—the reluctant Sun at the exact moment of dawn from his cosmic birth cavity at Galactic Center to be reborn for a new cycle.

Indeed a spectacle worth keeping predictive records of witness for over three thousand years. And we are the civilization alive to witness it.

In the eyes of the Ancestors, we are the ones we have been waiting for. We need to get our heads round this soon: and … before solstice would be good.

Above all, group consciousness, or combined intuition is clearly the way to perceive what is happening to us.

For those perhaps not willing to take another [spiritual] leap, the earth will continue in her beautiful bounty, I do believe; but I also believe there is an added dimension out there—not just because the crop circles have succeeded in describing “portals” in detail; but because all the ancient calendars can’t be wrong.

“Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world’s machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels”
Nikola Tesla 1856-1943

Within the earth’s magnetosphere — the electrical shield which functions as a smaller planetary dynamo equivalent to the sun’s huge electromagnetic field — there is a spinning scalar vortex running through the earth which is apparently kept in place by the moon’s position and rotation around the earth.

It is precisely held.

We always see only the single face of the moon, in all her phases, inclined towards Earth in permanent gaze — a geomagnetic/lunar arrangement which is scientifically impossible according to simple gravitational theory — only one of the moon’s many anomalies which few except plasma scientists will touch.

However, the moon seems to perpetuate this axial configuration on a scalar electromagnetic level, pulling earth’s tides and in turn being pulled closer and repelled by earth herself. These motions are embedded within the ancient characteristics of astrology, surrounding the Moon’s North and South Nodes, imaginary locations which have been known from time immemorial as the Dragon’s head and Dragon’s tail.

Both legend and astrology connect the Nodes with the ascendant, a point representing the rose-colored glasses we constantly look through (both directions) as we occupy an avatar, in this plane on the surface of the globe.

Iapetus, 7th of Saturn's 33 moons, like our Moon, always shows one face to its ringed parent. Named for Uranus' Titan son, Iapetus fathered Prometheus and Atlas

The serpent, ‘Lucifer’, ‘angel-of-the-dawn’, the light-bearer all signal the astrological ‘ascendant’, calculated as the point where the light of dawn shines on that part of the world when the subject of the astro-chart is born. It gives the chart its orientation and reveals the functional level where unseen forces manipulate development and motion or flow of life within the incarnate who inhabits the avatar.

In Hinduism, an avatar, Hindi: [ˈəvət̪ɑːr], English: /ˈæv.ə.tɑːr/, (avatāra: Devanagari अवतार, Sanskrit for “descent” [viz., from Heaven to Earth]) is a deliberate descent of a deity from heaven to earth, or a descent of the Supreme Being (i.e., Vishnu for Vaishnavites) and is mostly translated into English as “incarnation”, but more accurately as “appearance” or “manifestation”.

Earth's 'Becker-Hagens' energetic grid concentrated into nodes where tetrahedra meet

From this constant flow and vibration, electromagnetic resonance of the earth can be calculated. That results in a shape (wave, graph, grid) for the resonance, which allowed Berthe Hagens and Bill Becker to devise the Becker-Hagens vortex grid. This earth grid is based on known energy focal points (Wiltshire-speak’s ley lines) with its nodes spaced in configurations exactly matching the Platonic solids: the cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron,and icosahedron.

The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Cube or Hexahedron-6, Octahedron-8, Dodecahedron-12 and Icosahedron-20) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns which occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variation. Because of their intrinsic use by Mother Nature, they are known as forms of Sacred Geometry.

The earth’s own neutral center is a dimensional window that vibrates at frequencies resonant with the earth’s own spherical harmonics. I’m not certain whether these spherical harmonics correlate to mechanical, electromagnetic, or gravitational vibrations. Whatever the case, standing waves are set up that create equally-spaced node and antinodal points on earth’s surface.
David R Cowan, author of Ley Lines and Earth Energies and Safe as Houses

The Becker-Hagens Grid incorporates the Platonic solids and the 20-sided icosahedron to create a grid of 62 points. It is worth reading their work, as they delve deeply into the historical background for such an earth grid.

This dual vortex (in opposing directions) has a continuous flow that rings the earth like a large horn or bell. Their research seems to indicate that the moon exerts influence via interference with the earth’s original energies.

Interestingly, the same grid was well-known to the ancients who built megalithic structures at nodal points on land and knew to navigate around such energy vortices (as Great Abaco-Bermuda Triangle, Corryvreckan and the Maelstrøm) in the oceans.

Old Bewick, Northumberland Neolithic cupmarked rock -- reminiscent of crop circle design -- carved to capture and store earth energy from sunlight

The Dragon Project of Dr G.V. (Don) Robins was one of the first to document measureable energy fluxes at such Neolithic sites as Rollright Stones in the 1980s. The eponymous Dragon was that magical energy stored in the ground which ancient myth likened to a sleeping dragon: the same beast which early Christian saints — Michael and George — slew in their efforts to wean country people (pagans, fr. Latin, paganus, country person) away from such ‘nonsensical’ belief in earth magick and superstition in an earth energy rivaling God.

Robins’s Geiger counter and ultrasound readings were anomalously absent inside the stone circle precinct at Rollright, Oxfordshire, compared with background radiation outside the stone periphery. He measured the nearby King Stone, a huge outlier, over a period of five years, finding that it pulsed regularly each day at 30 minutes and 10 minutes before dawn, with pulsations strongest at the equinoxes and less marked at the solstices.

Guy Underwood, author of Patterns of the Past, and Tom Graves Needles of Stone recorded anomalies at Arbor Low in Derbyshire and Long Meg, Cumbria. Locally, it was common knowledge that larks and swallows seemed drawn to the ultrasound emanating at both stone circles. Gerald Hawkins’ team found high-energy readings emitted from a cupmarked circle stone at Temple Wood, Kilmartin, Argyll in 1973.

Neolithic stone circles in Aberdeenshire have documented high-energy, thought to be ‘stored’ in the quartz inclusions present in many granite ‘recumbent’ stones chosen specifically for placement in the southwest of the circle to ‘capture’ the dying sun in midwinter, major standstill moonset and the setting sun in the north at summer solstice. As with stone circles in Northern England and Wiltshire, most are placed over underground aquifers where it is thought the stones acted as ‘radio masts’ to collect the subterranean energy and transmit it above ground along the planetary grid.

Aberdeenshire also has its ‘ringing’ stones which sounded like a bell when dawn sunlight hit. A similar phenomenon was recorded by Strabo at Thebes when the northern quartz Colossus of Memnon sang at dawn.

Nikola Tesla discovered 'radiant energy' in scalar waveforms

Nikola Tesla discovered in 1901 that when a metal was illuminated by high-frequency light (e.g. ultraviolet light), electrons were ejected from the metal at high energy. This work was based on the previous knowledge that light acting on metals produces a current, but Tesla was the first to describe it as a particle phenomenon. Further, it was discovered within the year that energy emitted by these ejecting electrons did not depend on its intensity but its frequency (wave-form): in order to produce high energy electrons, one must illuminate the metal with high-frequency light. The more light there is, the more electrons are ejected, but intensity depended on frequency alone. This very interesting discovery was intrinsic in the Manhattan Project‘s production of the first ‘atom’ bomb.

However, more recent — and ongoing — research into e.g. CERN’s Higgs-Boson particle and OPERA at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has much wider (and potentially more hazardous) implications for mankind, should present work on electromagnetic scalar wave technology be controlled and used for destructive, rather than constructive purposes, in leading humanity through its present crisis.

The Photon Phantasm and Time Travel
When Einstein received his Nobel Prize in 1921, it was not for his more difficult and mathematically-laborious special and general relativity, but for the simple, yet totally revolutionary, suggestion of quantized light.

Einstein’s “light quanta” are what we now call photons. They are a quintessential example of light’s wave–particle duality.

Electromagnetic radiation propagates following linear wave equations, but can only be emitted or absorbed as discrete elements — thus acting simultaneously as both a particle and a wave.

Milk Hill, Alton Barnes figure of eight crop circle of 08:08:08 -- ideal representation of a scalar wave

“Scalar waves are produced when two electromagnetic waves of the same frequency are exactly out of phase (opposite to each other) and the amplitudes subtract and cancel each other. The result is not exactly an annihilation of magnetic fields but a transformation of energy back into a scalar wave. This scalar field has reverted back to a vacuum state of potentiality. Scalar waves can be created by wrapping electrical wires around a figure eight in the shape of a Möbius coil. When an electric current flows through the wires in opposite directions, the opposing electromagnetic fields from the two wires cancel each other and create a scalar wave.”

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them — into the impossible.”

Clarke’s Second Law

Möbius coil within our DNA: scalar wave technology at the micro level

“The DNA antenna in our cells’ energy production centers (mitochondria) assumes the shape of what is called a supercoil. Supercoil DNA looks like a series of Möbius coils. These Möbius DNA supercoils are hypothetically able to generate scalar waves. Most cells in the body contain thousands of these Möbius supercoils, which are generating scalar waves throughout the cell and throughout the body.”
Dr. Stephen Linsteadt, Holographic Repatterning Practitioner

“There is enough energy inside the space of an empty tea-cup to boil all the oceans of the world”
Richard Feynman

Despite ongoing demands on world nations’ already overstretched budgets for potentially-hazardous nuclear power and coal-generation plants, little focus falls on the fact that during the 1930s, the US Navy, Stanford University and General Electric exploited Tesla’s free energy system. While some of the patented equipment they used is too complex for the lay person to understand, Bill Morgan simplifies in his ‘beginner’s guide’ what he calls the ‘Scalar Wars’ of the free-energy movement begun by Tom Bearden.

One of the first scalar wave crop circles of 2011 appeared 13th July at Windmill Hill, along with two sameday Wiltshire companions -- at Chaddenwick Hill, Mere and Stonehenge

The layman will need to understand that there is a new kind of energy that is altogether different from what he knows, e.g. radio, TV, cell phones, etc. This is electromagnetic energy. Ordinary EM waves that we have known about are called transverse EM waves, to distinguish them from the new longitudinal EM waves. These scalar waves do not actually exist in our ‘material’ world, but exist only in the space dimension, or the time domain. And we must keep in mind that this space exists all through everything. Our bodies are mostly empty space between atoms and molecules. So the gateway to this ocean of energy can be there at every point in the universe. This seething ocean of energy is all around us and all through us.
Bill Morgan, Brave New World of Scalar Electromagnetics

Needless to say, Bearden stresses the destructive potential of military and power-driven use of such technology.

“If Bearden is correct in his Scalar EM theory, then we can build devices which would enable us to alter gravity, time, inertia, and the apparent mass of an object. This of course has enormous implications for military applications, space-vehicle drives, time-travel, teleportation, paranormal phenomena, and just about every other area one can think of.”
Rick Andersen ‘What is Scalar Electromagnetics?’

It is important to remember that (in astrophysics and hydrodynamics) scalar wave fields exist in a fifth-dimensional, non-linear, context. Third-dimensional laws of nature do not operate here. Scalar wave fields exist out of our relative time (4th) and space (3rd) dimensions and as such, do not decay over time or distance. As we explore higher dimensions, we begin to encounter new parameters, new ways of thinking.

ET timetravel sequence
There is another, benevolent, aspect to what Einstein called zero-point energy — Tesla’s ‘radiant energy’ — which few may have read about.

The planets as renditions of perfect sacred geometry, image John Martineau

Jesse Errol Stewart describes in vivid (and technical) detail his introduction through a family member to a group who had mastered the use of ‘zero-point’ nodes — specific locations on the earth, like Great Abaco, Transvaal and Giza — where not only was energy neutralized, but the time spectrum opened up as well: a situation akin to using a locus to move at will between dimensions; a time portal. We take the Siderealview that it is appropriate to include his observations here because they are so truthfully and lucidly presented, and because world consciousness is becoming aware of the imminent electromagnetic interface encountered when one moves from one level of ‘reality’ to another. See previous Siderealview posts on quantum and dimensional awareness. It is not as if we are not already blessed with several decades’ worth of Star Trek, Back to the Future and the writings of Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein and H.G. Wells. It seems somehow natural now to open ourselves to the possibility of moving at will through the time dimension. For this is what Jesse Stewart’s group did, using scalar wave technology:

“Our initial research had indicated that the tetrahedron was the most effective geometric form to use in conjunction with the tensor coil, which is an exceptionally strong scalar wave generator. In the Qabala, a tensor coil is mounted on each of the vertices of the tetrahedron configuration and each of these scalar wave generators is aimed towards the exact center (Scalar rendezvous point) of the tetrahedron. The effects of the pulsed scalar wave generation are incredible in that within the rendezvous point the concentrated scalar activity generates intense electromagnetic fields that cut across multiple dimensions. Once these electromagnetic fields become defined they will begin to expand outward at an exponential rate if the scalar wave generation is not tightly controlled.”
Jesse Errol Stewart Time Vector Field Chronicles

Bill Morgan simplifies Bearden, describing Longitudinal EM energy which fills the ‘vacuum’ of space, the time domain of spacetime, and expresses time as compressed energy, with the equation E = Δtc2, above, as waves of time, or Energy equals (delta=change) in Time accelerated to the speed of light, squared.

We can travel to the distant stars. And now the wormhole of time — compressed energy — is opening up before our eyes.

What synchronicity. Just when we had all mastered Einstein’s other equation: E = MC2.

In typical positive style, Morgan suggests solutions to the energy crisis and the “oil problem” are in hand. That oil wars are unnecessary because there is endless energy freely available from the domain of time. Also that future cure of all disease is within our grasp. This ability was also suggested by Jesse Stewart’s time travel group, who used the mechanism of returning to NOW from the past as a means towards youthening and restoring health. They called it Regenesis.

We have obstacles to overcome, however:

Saturn's dark side: distant Sun illuminates dust, debris, fabulous rings; NASA Cassini orbiter photo

Unbelievably powerful weapons are not only possible, but are already operating in several nations. The many powers of these weapons are unprecedented and mind-boggling.

Mind control on a mass scale (via electromagnetic tweaking of our human circuitry) has now become possible, and machines to do it are already in place in certain nations. It has become possible mentally to enslave whole populations with the twist of a few dials.

With these warnings, there is much work ahead for us, the human family, to accomplish; with only a window of opportunity of a couple of years.

Jesse Stewart’s travelers also gave an account of a crisis facing Humanity in the 2013-2015 time window: that other dimensional civilizations share consciousness that helps them rely on a centralized benevolent Intelligence which guides actions and words, subdues conflict and spreads a loving and compassionate feeling within all interaction. He suggests Humanity is learning how to think as Group Consciousness, but that we shall have to speed up our ability to use this intuitive capacity — this inner loving guidance system — very rapidly, if we are to weather the storm and defuse the threat posed by such massive weaponry as some less-disciplined nations possess.

They see this as our current dilemma: the human crisis. None of the future scenarios envisaged by either time-frame dimension is able to penetrate the 2013-2015 window: the glass is dark. Our Human future is in our hands.

We must write that chapter ourselves.

Now that we can travel to the stars, it’s time to take care of business at home. And it is crucial that we take our own collective consciousness concept seriously.

We are creators. More than ever before, our future depends on us.

Dimensional Shift: Take the 5D Elevator

August 28, 2011

Archaic hieroglyph inscribed on circumference of newest dimensional crop circle at Cherhill, Wiltshire

“Miracles start to happen when another unseen world intersects with our own.”
—C. S. Lewis, 1947

The Fabric of Space
Ever since Einstein, mathematicians, sacred geometers, astrophysicists and scientists of all disciplines have struggled to explain the fabric of space.

Lisi's Theory of Everything (ToE)--note similarity to Jubilee Plantation form

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
— Albert Einstein

One of the latest in a long line of contenders (including charismatic Nassim Haramein, whose theory of ‘Resonance’ is constantly expanding) is the E8 Group. Garrett Lisi‘s E8 ‘Theory of Everything’ (subatomic) strives to explain –on the back of Einstein’s relativity, and assuming gravity as the dominant force — how all things fit together. It is a nice idea. But many quantum physicists and mathematicians disagree. “…[E8]’s biggest flaw is probably its starting point, because gravity is not a fundamental force, but an emergent one, as postulated by Dutch theoretical physicist Erik Verlinde.” David Deutsch, author of The Fabric of Reality: towards a Theory of Everything (1998) and The Beginning of Infinity (2011) says ‘one of the most valuable, significant and useful attributes of human thought is its ability to reveal and explain the fabric of reality.’

Cherhill 5D cube --'penteract'-- at Jubilee Plantation: connections made by physicists to E8 theory; or is it Max Planck's 'Divine Matrix'?

Milo Wolff’s Wave Structure of Matter, describes how waves in quantum space form all the matter of the Universe. His simple, elegant explanation of how matter forms at a point/node, answers some of the basic questions in physics, e.g. WHY gravity exists. Previously physics taught that particles were the “stuff,” and the rest is empty space. It seems the opposite may be true. Space now looks like a multidimensional fabric with nodes where particles of reality form and reform where waves cross, as they move through this fabric. Wave patterns, vibration and sound play a huge role in the illusion we call matter.

Deutsch disagrees with Stephen Hawking that the human race is ‘typical’ in the Universe, merely ‘chemical scum’ on the surface of a ‘typical’ planet. He thinks we are an exceptional species, our knowledge accelerating at a phenomenal rate. He agrees with Nobel prizewinning physicist Richard Feynmann that the ‘Multiverse’ is our quantum medium and we sentient beings are the most important entities in it. His work in the field of quantum computers makes him an optimist. Like Terence McKenna, he believes, all (human) knowledge is without boundaries, constantly evolving. McKenna said in 2000 before he died that humanity is headed for a world made out of Mind:

‘Mind instead of “stuff”…a hologrammatic disk, part bio, part machine, part think tank, part Mind’
Terence McKenna


Deutsch, working in 2011 to create the ultimate quantum computer environment, is making McKenna’s prophecy a reality.

Other physicists, Quantum or otherwise, converse in terms of the Multiverse. Sabine Hossenfelder and Rob Bryanton, author of Imagining the Tenth Dimension say we have only scratched the surface. In this realm of multiple dimensions and parallel universes, gravity seems to have taken a back seat to a simpler field of energy where waves interlock and form ‘nodes’ of matter. Just like crop circles do!

Sabine (Bee) is, like fellow physicist Bryanton, besotted with additional dimensions. They are true disciples of Max Planck, known as the ‘father of quantum physics’. He believed all reality was contained within a Matrix, which he called divine because it displayed a field of energy which appears intelligent. Planck shocked contemporaries in 1947 by confirming what the Ancients believed — on all continents — that the Universe is being run by a Divine Being with our interests at heart. He also said ‘Mind is the Matrix of all Matter.’

“All matter (from the birth of stars, to human DNA and everything in between) originates and exists by virtue of a Force. We must assume behind this force a conscious, intelligent Matrix.” Max Planck, 1947

Gregg Braden, a former aerospace computer systems designer, transitioned into his life’s work of trying to understand this matrix. He sees this ‘container of the Universe’ as the bridge between our imagination and reality, as well as being the mirror in our world for what we believe: a reciprocal process. ‘To unleash the power of this matrix in our lives we must understand how it works and speak the language that it recognizes.’

Perhaps the Jubilee crop circle is saying just that: getting us to read the code; opening our minds to interpreting symbols other than words on a page.

So, if Space has the underlying predetermined form of the ‘golden decagon’ which the Jubilee Plantation crop circle portrays — with specific lines absent so that it looks like a 5D cube (penteract) — its internal structure seems based on the Golden Mean/Ratio, Phi (Greek letter uppercase Φ, lowercase φ, or written mathematically ϕ); that magical balance of beauty, harmony and form that gives us shivers to contemplate.

Just as previous crop circles have given us clues, little coincidences, double entendre allusions to inside knowledge, names, nearby features, and particularly sacred form and meaning, this season’s finale seems filled with meaning. It is simultaneously seen in the physics community as ToE (above), to sacred geometers it is a 5D hypercube, and a spider web. (Native American mother arachnid warns us to be mindful of the web we weave in our lives; to focus on our choices). The crop circle’s perimeter webbing is indeed masterful — a tapestry of careful precision, photo below. Looks as if we’re being given some good advice.

Once again ET/our human-Oversoul reminds us we are part of something divine and, even more exciting, communally about to transition into — the Fifth Dimension.

Carl Sagan, in describing a Tesseract (4D cube), carefully talked us through an understanding of seeing the fourth dimension as ‘another form of measure at right angles to the ones we are familiar with’ or, more simply, to look at its shadow. Many of last year’s (2010) crop circles presented hypercubes and allusions to the fourth dimension. Now we are being presented with a progression into the fifth.

How does our imagination picture a further dimension at right angles to time?

In the fields of Wiltshire, harvest is almost over. Only a few acres remain to be cut and stored. Another season has come and gone.

But our dimensional brothers from another time-space-reality have been sending us messages nonetheless. They continue contact with our subliminal consciousness so that, if we allow the communication to root, it will add another notch to that strand of human DNA that is consistently expanding, upgrading, enlightening us to understand a newer, all-encompassing reality — one we’ve never encountered before.

The crop circle at Jubilee Plantation may be the last of the season. It is ostensibly a simple decagon surrounded by woven grain and etched in the center with slim lines of apparent intricacy — only one footprint wide on the ground — and probably the most important crop circle which has been imprinted this year. Like last season’s finale, when seen from above *as with all designs inspired by our Oversoul [*see Nazca lines], it serves to click an unbidden trigger in our synapses and unleash our dimensional observer: the one who sees multiple cubes rising and descending in the elevator of our mind.

The Pentaract is, in animation, a constantly imploding and exploding hypercube extruding itself from its own cone of squares like a rectangular telescope. In shadow in the field, its 2D shape is merely a mass of thin lines. But this field imprint is a masterpiece of dimensionality that only our human consciousness [in its expanded version] could devise to send back to us through time/space and via the elevator of understanding which we croppies hope we project in our willingness to receive, before the season is out.

Deutsch, an innovator like his gurus, Richard Feynmann and quantum cosmologist Leonard Susskind, likes to simplify. The beauty of a formation (in the field or in mathematical formulae) betrays for him a simple truth. Susskind believes we are having an intelligent conversation with the Universe. Physicist Deutsch, an Oxford don, appears to be honing that into sharp focus, by bringing ecology, natural selection, physics, mathematics and evolution into the conversation via computer technology. He points out the shocking fact that the earth’s natural ecosystem is almost incapable now of supporting human beings, certainly in any numbers. We have created our own life-support system of food, energy, transport, shelter and communications. He is fond of using his own territory of Oxfordshire as an example. Take away the farms and modern infrastructure and, in the woods and downs, little of the vegetation that is left now is edible. He, like Stephen Hawking (but for different reasons) advocates upgrading our planetary exploration capability and getting ‘out there’. His Beginning of Infinity is a great treatise on Life, the Universe and Everything, a book for our time where the answer is not 42: it is infinity.

The Significance of Venus

Woven 'fabric' of Jubilee plantation, image Frank Laumen. The August 15th crop circle is a masterpiece of wordplay, timing, sacred geometry and cultural prompting. Its decagon (double pentagram) appeared on the day planet Venus (pentagonal orbit) reached superior conjunction

This season’s shapes have constantly encouraged us to leave our myopic cultural concerns and look to the heavens. Earlier in the season, crop designs focused on orbits of the solar system’s inner planets, cometary ‘intruders’, reminding us of knowledge known to our ancestors but apparently ‘lost’ to modern civilization. Few knew, for instance, that the day of the Jubilee plantation appearance was astronomically significant (particularly to ancient skywatchers) as the moment Venus reached its farthest elongation from Earth in direct line on the other side of the sun from us — known as superior conjunction — when all three bodies line up, but when Venus becomes ‘invisible’. As the ancient Babylonians described her, Ishtar/Venus the dual-phased (Sumerian double countenanced Inanna) morning star of war and wrath now enters the Underworld, where she transitions from being goddess of war in the Eastern sky and emerges 60 days later as evening star in the West: Ishtar/Aphrodite, goddess of love. What a great pity our modern prosaic preoccupations with money and status no longer allow us to look at love and war with that cosmic perspective.

‘When beggars die there are no comets seen
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes’
Calphurnia, Julius Caesar II ii 30 Wm Shakespeare

Hurricane Irene making landfall on the East coast of the USA, August 28th, 2011

Much of the eastern United States is at present having to contemplate the power of the planet, in a frightening double dose of earthquake and hurricane. This electromagnetically-sealed planetary body is suddenly seen, not merely as the mothership that guides us through those remote reaches of interstellar space, but as herself a biosphere of living, moving, reacting interplay of elements: fire, water, air, earth. Suddenly what the Ancients believed takes on meaning few in formerly powerful Wall Street or choppy Chesapeake could have imagined.

Our place in the Universe is constantly changing and ancestral societies DID know more about this reality than we, shadow people of 21stC society, do. We wake up one morning and everything has changed. Power is for a moment seen, not in the symbolic dollar or in terrestrial exploitation to squeeze every last ounce of energy out of an exhausted source; but in a living, breathing rotating body in the heavens responding to electromagnetic pressures being thrust upon her.

To the Ancients (Maya, Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Chinese, Hindu, Aztec and Inca) Venus’s elongation was symbolic of (sacred) periodicity — an amazing calculable phenomenon which ties the two planets forever locked in celestial embrace as they orbit their parent Sun. There is no more potent symbolism seen in the heavens than the exact cyclical rhythm that Venus dances with Earth: Venus travels faster than Earth, orbiting the sun 2.6 times to Earth’s 1.6 orbits. This means that five Venus cycles of 548 days exactly equal eight Earth cycles of 365 days. Five Venus years equal eight Earth years. Exactly. The beauty of that synchronicity was not lost on formative societies. It was the stuff of which their gods were made. The Venus rotational cycle formed a perfect sacred pentagram. This is also contained in the Jubilee crop design.

Ninth Wave of Calendar of Consciousness for 2011: split into seven 'days' and six 'nights'. We entered the fifth 'night' August 18th

Currently the Long Count calendar of the Maya is gaining popularity, thanks to the willingness of Maya Elders to share sacred handed-down knowledge, to scholars who have gone before, like Ian Xel Lungold, José Argüelles, and to current teachers of the 5124-year calendar cycles like Carl Johan Calleman.

What is gradually surfacing — not through television or newspaper reportage, but through that McKenna/Deutsch miracle of quantum computing, the Internet — is that the Ancients knew a thing or two and we would be well-served to pay attention. The Thunderbolts Project, mentioned earlier in our Siderealview blog, a consortium of physicists, mythologists, astronomers, authors and plasma technicians, has now published intriguing proof that ancient mythology, cave and rock art and petroglyphs from Mesopotamia to Russia and Tibet, from North and South America to Northern Europe all described Earth’s volatile beginnings as a planet surrounded by other heavenly bodies — a little too close for comfort. That, before the Age of Reason and the vision of heavenly stability we see in our skies now — nine impeccable planets circling an orderly star — there was an Age of Chaos. And that these unruly planets gave their names to archaic deities: that the gods WERE planets; fiery dragons and thunderbolts were comets, the stuff of the stars.

Saturn/Kronos as Creator
Saturn appears regularly as the oldest god: before the Sun, Saturn ruled [Saturnia Regna = Golden Age].

Ancient belief systems from both Old World and New have often featured in our Siderealview. And, while we continue to extol the virtues of that bible of myth by Giorgio de Santillana and Herta von Dechend, Hamlet’s Mill (1969-2002), an ‘Essay investigating Origins of Human Knowledge & its Transmission through Myth’, with its huge databank of archaeoastronomical research on which world myths are founded, the Inca pantheon — the Inca celestial myth has similarities to all world cultural branches — seems to have escaped their notice.

The mythology and chronology of the Maya is currently in vogue and getting a lot of attention. But it helps to look at pre-Columbian belief generally — Inca peoples in particular — as the picture painted there is one of pure untainted primitivism: something lost in other cultures where transmission has been heavily edited, influenced or interpreted.

Roman naturalist Gaius Plinius Secundus (Pliny, AD23-79) wrote erudite work based on scientific observation:
“Heavenly fire is spit forth by the planet as crackling charcoal flies from a burning log.” He was speaking of ‘comet-Venus’ but he recorded interplanetary ‘thunderbolts’, in his time and in Roman history thrown by each of the three ‘upper planets’, Mars, Mercury and Saturn. He actually died during the eruption of Vesuvius, poor man.

Rome may have had its master observers whose documentation is beyond question, but such references are scanty in the Americas.

“The natives of this country say that in the beginning, before the world was created, there was one whom they called Viracocha. And he created the world dark and without the Sun, nor Moon, nor stars.”

INCA EMPIRE: Quechua ‘TAWANTISUYU’
Tawantisuyu stretched from Ecuador in the north through the Andean kingdoms of Peru, west and south-central Bolivia, through northwest Argentina, Chile and southern Pacific coast; the European equivalent of a huge kingdom lying between the coast of Portugal and inland Caucasus.

The language of Quechua survives. It straddles this last millennium, offering insight into their elusive yet strong belief in heavenly deities, rather than –as seen in vestigial effigies dedicated by the Maya to their gods– a religion dominated by statues. The only exception in worship of a planetary pantheon was their use of gold to simulate LIGHT. The Maya, on the other hand, had a fully functional ‘alphabet’ of symbols inherent in their multi-functional Tzolkin calendar and an amazing history, Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel which retold their history (and that of their ancestors, the Olmec) going back at least to 4200BC. Maya culture, while not totally continuous, has survived. The Inca belief system has not.

However, both cultures, along with all the oldest mythologies in the Old World, shared the belief that the original sky god (before the sun) was the equivalent of Greek Kronos (Father Time), Mesopotamian Shamash/Ninurta, Babylonian Sakkuth, Sumerian Anu, Etruscan Satres (from whom the Romans borrowed Saturnus) — the first planet/god who created order out of primeval chaos. This was Saturnia Regna, (trans. rule of Saturn), the ‘Golden Age’.

In the Chilam Balam, Saturn is the nameless one — known only as Oxlahun-ti-ku, (trans. the ‘Thirteen’, perhaps referring to his moons; Cuzcoan Viracocha) — one of two gods ruling the heavens. Venus was ‘born’ in 3147BC, when Longcount began. In the Inca creation legend, Viracocha is the Great God (Saturn, temple disk above), worshipped by the sun, moon and planets.

One last teaser: before we return to our preoccupation with culture, conformity and crisis. Where thunderbolts and lightning struck terror into the hearts of primitive peoples — not unlike the terror being felt in the eastern US states right now as Earth tears her hair and sheds her shackles — the power of light, plasma discharge, electricity and magnetic storm had a hold over our ancestors. They viewed the heavens as a place from where gods came to wield instruments of light not known on Earth. Similarly, light orbs (balls of light, ultrasonic/electric crackling) have been witnessed in association with crop circle formation.

So many eye-witness accounts now attest to the creation of authentic crop circles — sometimes literally in minutes — by means of hovering plasma balls of light, that their elusive nature was this year one of the serious discussions at the annual CircleChasers gathering July 27th at Alton Barnes. Perhaps the most genuine, enduring — and authenticated — footage capturing the orbs is that of Steve Alexander’s Milk Hill video (1990).

Thunderbolts, light orbs, gods in the sky. The seasonal finale seems also to signal symbolic change (N. hemisphere) from summer (Leo full moon August 13) to fall (Virgo new moon August 29) — always a deep psychological shift. It also marked Maya 5th ‘night'(of world chaos) August 18th-September 4th.

That elusive ‘signature’, shown top, next to the Jubilee crop circle harks back to several ‘dragon’ designs of earlier years. It may even be the meteorologist’s symbol for a ‘weather-feather’. But it surely connects us through age-old wisdom to ancient beasts of prophecy — dragon, serpent and crow. It now appears with intriguing regularity each season.

Jubilee plantation’s choice location may also signal reason for jubilation: transition to higher, more noble principles, unbelievably even entry into the fifth dimension.

Suspending our disbelief, we are capable of creating new miracles, events which are not part of commonplace experience. We are becoming a one-world consciousness. Together we are beginning to resonate as OneMind. The Elevator doors are open. What are we waiting for?

Reaching for Sunbeams: Unity Consciousness in the Ninth Wave

April 13, 2011

José Argüelles–proponent of the living spirit of the Maya as seen through their Calendar of Consciousness — died on March 23, 2011 (2 Imix). Among his contemporaries and in his community, his ‘transitioning’ to a higher dimension–just as the culmination of the Calendar of the Maya is glimpsed on the horizon–was considered a surprise, a tragedy. He was one of the few indigenous Americans who could make sense of the multiple calendar calculations of his ancestral Maya, putting their Tzolkin (260-days), their Long Count and their fiscal Haab into words that many could understand. He was honored in March 2002 as Valum Votan, ‘Closer of the Cycle’ by Mayan Nine Indigenous Elders atop the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan. There they awarded him the elders’ ceremonial staff for his efforts in helping to awake humanity to the meaning of 2012. He was co-founder of Earth Day (former Arbor Day) and instigated the first Whole Earth Festival in California in 1970.

‘Everything is perfect. Love Everyone. Hate No-one’ José Argüelles’ words as he left this dimension. His final book Manifesto for the Noosphere is being released by Evolver/North Atlantic Books

Argüelles’ first book, The Mayan Factor: Path beyond Technology (1987) was a breath of fresh air to believers in many countries who in the year of its publication congregated at his instigation to celebrate the Harmonic Convergence of August 16-17. It was the first gathering in modern times on Earth for a large convocation of all nations joining together to pray, meditate, give thanks and commune with the ancestral spirits.

Harmonic Convergence happened at a point in sidereal time when a majority of planets of the solar system converged in the sky and in calculable time 25 years before the Mayan Great Cycle Calendar end-date of winter solstice 2012. Sixteen years after that convergence, another galactic (planetary alignment) event occurred in 2003, known as the Harmonic Concordance, when an estimated one million people gathered worldwide to celebrate another level to which a growing consciousness movement on the planet had aspired–and reached–Unity Consciousness. In November 2010 a third convocation occurred between East and West where an estimated 10 million took part.

According to several western Mayan scholars, the 1987 date marked global synchronization for those kin souls on the planet prepared to shift into global awareness suited to the final years of their revered ancestors’ calendrical calculation: a human society whose consciousness was making ready to leap into a higher dimension, where we will manifest ‘one thousand years of peace and harmony’ on our planet.

‘Indigenous people work with calendars to predict times of revelation, so they can watch for the symbols that can reawaken their cellular memory and remake the human bridge to the subtle worlds….’ Barbara H Clow

Along with her mentor and colleague, Dr Carl J Calleman, Barbara Clow is a Mayan scholar and also an accomplished astrologer. According to their calculations, the Earth, along with all who are ready for Mankind’s quantum leap in consciousness, moved into the last Mayan phase–the Ninth Wave or Universal Underworld–on March 9th this year, one month ago. The event was signaled by a massive series of earthquakes on the Pacific rim. This shocking occurrence has had the desired effect of bringing much of the world together in compassion, although it still seems almost inconceivable that we as a whole-earth society have only one year from now (the Ninth Wave) in which to ‘get our house in order’ for the leap up the dimensional ladder into our evolved higher (light-being) selves.

But Unity Consciousness has a finely-tuned harmonic scale which our DNA and our evolving, light-enhanced cells may find hard to resist.

And we have help.

2010 higher dimensional objects in 2D in Wiltshire fields

Judging by increasing complexity we have witnessed in crop circle designs of recent years, the 2011 season (England–imminent) *(see first report in Wales here)* will more than outdo its predecessors. From around 1998 on, 2D graphics seen in Wiltshire and Oxfordshire fields (as viewed from above) have progressively demonstrated the quantum reality of showing higher dimensional figures (3D, 4D, 5D) as if in shadow, or in their two-dimensional, (simpler), form.

Astrophysicist Carl Sagan once explained that the only way we–in 3D– can visualize a 4D object is to imagine an extra dimension at right angles to the ones we know as familiar. Or see its shadow counterpart.

Crop designs in 2010 were particularly adept at showing higher dimensional objects in their lower dimensional (geometric) shadow guise.

It is as if we are being given consciousness clues to help us maintain our level of intent to accomplish the next leap in faith.

Crop circle art is no longer seen as marginal, an outdated hoax, a manmade joke. The concept of humankind’s own higher self–its own unified field of psychic understanding projecting a message back down to the 2D receptors of its own learning (lower self) population–begins to make a degree of sense.

Like imagining a dimension at right angles to the ones we already know, we just have to get our heads around the concept.

Crop Circles–the Cosmic Post-it Note

Aldbourne 'vortex' crop circle, July 2006

Crop circles are like post-it notes left by our already-elevated consciousness in a time-warp created by our future self and stuck on a prominent noticeboard before it left the building: for us to come along and read in this dimension, so we know we’re still headed in the right direction. Or, if you prefer it, picture a shadow of what is to come. However you do it, it will take both hemispheres of the brain to work in unison to get the projection right! And there are many poised worldwide to integrate the lessons of the 2011 season into their awareness.

The Astrological Aspect
Many of us have a fascination for planetary clustering in current astrological charts. In progressed charts, astrologers can detect heavenly indicators which are actively guiding the human race in present time –making it a make-or-break choice for many. Last spring and summer were dominated by a Grand Cross configuration: conflicts all around. This spring marks global change.

New Moon/Sun & Mercury, Jupiter, Mars/Uranus in Aries opposite Saturn in Libra: April 4th 2011

Following this month’s potent new moon-Sun-Jupiter conjunction on April 4th-5th and a Mars-Uranus conjuction (rash, impulsive unexpected change) in the same sign (Aries), Ms Clow says ‘people will feel like racehorses at the gate, ready to charge when the gun cracks… If you race for your true heart’s desire, chances are the people around you will be focusing on theirs as well; there’s no need to smash into each other. Our reality is now a fully-activated holographic fractal field, so when you choose your highest good and place it in your heart, what you’re doing doesn’t (negatively) affect others. But it would be very smart to stay out of any conflicts that are going on around you–especially the ones you don’t really care about.’

One further prediction in archival material maintained by the Maya is that nine deities or forces will appear at the End of Time. The Codices left by the Maya envisage the return of Kukulcan–Aztec Quetzalcoatl. He is mesoamerican serpent god-of-the-sun and consort of Venus.

In the West, the appearance of nine energies in the End Times has been interpreted widely as equivalent to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Western biblical tradition: war, pestilence, famine and death. Dr Calleman, however, thinks otherwise.

“I believe that behind these cosmic forces, whose times of activation are described by the Mayan calendar, is an intelligent plan for the history of humanity that comes from a higher source and has a benevolent intention.”

He sees them as synchronicities or numeric coincidences: 9:9:9; 10:10:10; 11:11:11 and, of course, 12:12:12 are only four such numerological events.

Others have seen the ‘appearances’ of light orbs associated with the creation of crop circles, the Norway spiral and the revelations now being released by US government sources on UFOs as such ‘appearances’.

These nine cosmic forces are influencing and governing our collective consciousness and so we have every reason to pay attention to what is going on in this cosmic time plan–
Carl Calleman

He is convinced the numerology of nines is particularly relevant to this, the Ninth–and final–Wave, leading us to planetary and societal ‘completion’. He encourages ‘community building, networking and spiritual synchronization’. He envisages a rapid expansion of consciousness in our Final Days, where much is accomplished in a very short time–the Tzolkin 260 day time-count. He says the Ninth Wave is designed (by intelligent Source) in the Cosmos to accomplish a new earth-wide and earth-nurturing consciousness: unity consciousness with all life. That we need to prepare for this–individually and together.

And that in approaching the birth of a new world with conscious intention, we will join with others of like mind and intent. Naturally, says Calleman, it is a matter of choice.

Let us hope that not only is he a true visionary, but that he is right.

For those who choose to join in collective intention for the co-creation of a new world, all miracles are possible.
