Four hundred days after 12/12/12, an eerie chill in the January 2014 evening air may send shivers up our spine, telling those of us Galactic pagans who stand at the open door to soul-consciousness that it is only a breath away.

This is no false media-promised ‘stairway to the stars’; more an energetic doorway offering itself now to propel us—aware or unaware—through the next steps—together—in evolution. To some of us who have been through the mill, the Siderealview is
BRING IT ON!

Archaic Units of Time and Measure
Classically, winter solstice—northern-hemisphere style—was what Greco-Roman male-dominant culture understood. While they borrowed Arabic constellations (gleaned from antediluvian astronomical study of both celestial spheres), leaving Islamic trails in the heavens around Al Nath, Mirfak, Rigel and Betelgeuse, they superimposed Latin names on important calendrical stars like the Pleiades, Sirius, Antares (in Scorpio, ‘rival’ of Ares-Mars for its red brilliance), and on a few favored constellations like Canopus and Carina in southern skies. Otherwise they concentrated heavily on renaming the northern zodiac.

Along with other Mediterranean cultures, they used the archaic cubit—length of the human forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger—the short cubit ranging from 17-18 inches.

‘The Universe is not thirteen billion light years across and self-made, as believed in the Illusion. Creation is over nine hundred trillion light years across and is still just beginning.

‘To inaugurate Creation, the Holy Trinity projected the Cube and Sphere one dimension down to the thirteenth dimension as a circle, hexagon outline—also called a cube—and flattened Y factor lines. The 13th-dimensional projection is known throughout all of Creation as that called a Cubit.

‘The Cubit is also expandable according to rule into multiferous combinations called Cubist matrices. The number of possible Cubist matrices is without limit. They are the genomes of Creation.’

Before he died on February 29th, 2009, John Burke, of BLT gave years of his life to study, along with his colleagues W.C. Levengood and Nancy P. Talbott, Dynastic Egyptians’ harnessing of energetic power in pyramid technology. See our treatise dedicated to John Burke in 2010, for an in-depth look at how his research crossed over into crop circle manifestation with similar results, more below.

“This energy force is capable of incising pictograms containing over a thousand elements with surgical precision, covering areas of up to 150,000 square feet, and with such unerring accuracy that ‘curtains’ of wheat one stalk wide are sometimes all that separate one circle from another. The perimeter walls resemble the seamless curve of a drum, and where inward-curving walls meet inside a design, the central point can be defined down to a single stalk”
John Burke, BLT

“This force has been put into crop circles through thought processes to initiate a new source of energy now being created. Certain beings are receiving preparation to understand messages projected at this time. Power is being created through intellect of the scientist, knowledge is awakened in others; some are very close to the answer: an energy machine. This energy is only partially linked to magnetism.

“Rather, it is linked to the illusion of time.

“Similar to thought-transference, wo/man will be able to change the molecular structure of things, including herself. Within the energy-pattern of the circles we are giving you this information.”

In retrospect, Croppies were being prepared from around 2007—7/7/7 double CCs yin-yang + OM, 8/8/8 Eight crop circle images above, startling even the most stalwart unbelievers in their transcendant art—for what now appears regularly in our consciousness: the appearance of the miraculous in everyday life.

Biblical, Dark Age, Mediaeval and Pagan pre-Celtic consciousness was constantly prepared by belief, sacred ceremony and ritual, for revelation of the Divine within the prosaic. It is our misgotten cultural overlay which now clouds our vision of such appearances in our modern world.

But not for long.

Chualar Vineyard Year-End Crop Circle Surprise
Meanwhile, while nobody in particular was watching—all eyes in the Western World being directed to that gay commercial entity called euphemistically, the ‘festive season’—an energetic vortex surfaced in a Salinas county vineyard, twenty miles due east of Monterey Bay, California.

CCD microchip crop circle appeared within five miles of Highway-101 artery, which funnels northern traffic out of LA-LA-land towards the Redwoods. It lies close to where retired screen stars have their ‘country’ homes. This microclimate enclave where a full winter barley crop was available in late December to be etched in multiple decodable dots and numbers—to the delight of CC-geeks everywhere—is coincidentally the oldest artist colony in California; where the San Francisco Arts movement (art nouveau, art-deco, original ‘bohemians’) fled after the earthquake of 1906. Arts, music, dance theaters and open-air stages abound within twee throwback architecture of the Edwardian era. Its hinterland still has pioneer attitude, coupled with rich agricultural valleys, which John Steinbeck breathed into life.

Seasonal Swansong
Not being on the normal CC circuit, Monterey received rather scant attention from US media and local press at first, relegating the last appearance of 2013 Crop Circle season to the loony pile, Brit. equivalent of a ‘hoax circle’ (ladders + human stomping). To add to that unfortunate attitude, current landowners Scott and Debbie Anthony were suffering personal illness, ordering the formation erased without their seeing it, so all barley within its one-acre circumference has been flattened. Nevertheless its intricacies are too precise, with on-site inspection of field lay described pointedly by knowledgeable (but undercover) botanists as multi-layered in the best authentic CC tradition—so it is hard not to want to examine, dissect, reveal all it may proffer for 2014.

Full-Well Capacity
Relatively easily identifiable first off in the design is an integrated circuit etched on to a charge coupled device, CCD, pixel-latest techno-geniuses’ creation in film chip technology, usually made of silicon, forming light-sensitive elements called pixels. Each pixel can hold a maximum number of electrons, called its ‘Full Well Capacity’! This number can vary widely (10ke- to 500ke-), depending currently on pixel’s physical dimensions—bigger the pixel, more electrons it can hold. So, while capable of holding zillions of pixels, current film chips are set at 192×165 pixels. On a quantum level, camera chips holding excess electrons begin to ‘bleed’ them into neighboring chips, causing ‘blooming’.

Parable/fable for humans?: if you stimulate/feel joy, move into being in joy, you will spread it around! Are we, humans on the brink of a New Beginning, being guided through our own blooming? In our blinkered state, are we capable of flowering? And is traditional chip size no longer a parameter in electronic circuitry? Aha!

Future Speak: Techno-Talk in the Barley
Central button panel code in three precise rows of braille-type dots folded through interwoven barley was quickly identified by local symphony orchestra conductor Carl Christensen as depicting the number 192. Braille dot system enables his blind students to read and write through touch. In his opinion, the dots are in very specific order, “so perfect it’s almost like a machine did it. They are not off in any way, shape, or form.”
Three lines in braille read:

Iridium's atomic weight is 192, half-life 73 days

Iridium’s atomic weight is 192, half-life 73 days

B 192 1

Simple message to the blind: awake, open eyes and see…
There are other implications, nuances in the design.
Seen as a simple clock face, aligned on 12-axis, numbers 1, 9 and 2 are repeated in descending size.

Chualar is a term from an American Indian language meaning ‘pigweed’, goosefoot, Amaranthus palmeri, a healing herb. It still grows in the canyon.

The glyph appeared overnight in barley in the strong December Quarantid meteor shower and during first onset of a solar storm which is still giving NASA, NOAA experts and several amateur CME-X-flare-watchers heart attacks. Ongoing since mid-December 2013, in the runup to our rendezvous with the center of the Galaxy, tomorrow January 4th, 2014, it has become a major storm—red panel sidebar right. Solar storms, as we know, tend to have major influence in terrestrial weather; but add the recent extraterrestrial bombardment of comet-ISON dust, near-earth asteroid impact and now the current evening showering of our planet by the Quanantids, what more is there to see?

Chualar township is a remnant region of California’s frontier that still produces food crops commercially, but along traditional lines. Salinas Valley agriculture, known worldwide as the breadbasket of California, supplies daily fresh produce to the nation. Also famous for its Pulitzer-Prize-winning native son, John Steinbeck, author of Of Mice and Men (1937), Grapes of Wrath (1939), Cannery Row (1945), Monterey now celebrates him at the National Steinbeck Center, a $5.2 million agriculture museum featuring Salinas Valley farming and Chualar history.

The small, unincorporated Chualar canyon community was given as part of Spanish Grant legislation to Juan Malarin, but acquired by David Jack, a canny Scots émigré from Crieff, Perthshire who exploited land grant liberality in frontier times in the transfer of rancho holdings to Americans during the 1860s. Not only was he considered the wealthiest individual in the county by 1880—accruing 30,000 acres in Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Del Rey Oaks, Del Monte Forest, Fort Ord, and the spectacular coastline 17-Mile Drive, but his family had become famous for an American staple: Monterey Jack cheese. Much of the original Jack settlement is now natural reserve administered by Carmel, but the Anthonys’ 2000-acre grape-production farm was Rancho Chualar in Jack’s domain.

Cerebrally connecting sacred number, cheese, fresh natural produce, a township out of time, with iridium, hardest and most indestructible of the metals, probably meteoritic? a vineyard where the Grapes of Wrath may rise in reply? and the suggestion that Wo/Mankind is set to blossom? New technology, new fabrics, concepts confronting us boldly in the maw of the Ouroboros? What a plethora of choice.

One-Acre Chualar CC: 0.4047 hectare = 4047 square metres
One acre is defined as a strip of land 1 × 1/10 furlong, or 40 × 4 rods (660 × 66 feet) long

Back to the staples of life: cubits and feet; and a reliable food supply.

And, as many past crop circles have indicated, number and sacred geometry tend to play a central role in appearances like Chualar, c.f. Mexican crop circles in water-parched hinterland of Tlapanaloya, March 2011.

Before the foundations of the Great Pyramid were laid, men tried to ‘square the circle’, i.e. construct a square and a circle equal in area, using compass and ruler. Some of the greatest minds in history—architects, politicians, artists, musicians, philosophers, astronomers and theologians—have tried to solve this ancient riddle. Mathematicians come closest. It was termed ‘impossible’ in 1882 when Carl Lindemann showed that π is a transcendental number, cannot be calculated or written as a ratio of two other numbers. Decimal values of π are infinite, and it is not possible to construct the square root of an infinite number, therefore ‘impossible’ to square the circle with exact precision. That, however, has changed. See crop circle site of Bert Janssen who persevered in his interpretation; also work of dream expert and numerologist Joseph Mason. For in-depth look at 192×165=31680, several hours’ reading John Michell‘s amazing ‘Dimensions of Paradise’ (2001) is recommended. Simply put, numbers like 31680 resonate, resound, ring bells in our psyche.

With several alarm bells presently ringing from the Japanese side of the Pacific, the fresh natural quality of California’s breadbasket may indeed be at risk.


Synchronicities and Coincidences

It may help to look closely at some clear clues wrapped up in sacred number.
Iridium, atomic weight 192-with isotopes still being discovered—Ir-element-77 in the Periodic Table, between Osmium Os-76 and Platinum Pt-78, is currently darling of specialist computer and other software developers, for its durability in extreme conditions of temperature and stress. With its near-limitless computer chip capacity, its applications are endless—e.g. space exploration, in subsea platforms, within volcanic or tectonic environments where humans cannot go.

Iridium, rarer than platinum, probably caused extinction of the dinosaurs

Iridium, rarer than platinum, probably caused extinction of the dinosaurs

Iridium is the hardest known (workable) metal; marginally harder and rarer than platinum, to whose group of ‘white metals’ it belongs; element-77 on the periodic table, above. At molecular level, Iridium is a ‘paramagnetic’ mesh of tetrahedra*, and sacred octahedral-combinatory shapes, whose radioactive isotopes are still being discovered. Iridium metal, while phenomenally expensive to produce, is employed when high corrosion resistance at extreme temperatures is needed, as in high performance spark plugs, crucibles for recrystallization of semiconductors at high temperatures, and electrodes for the production of chlorine in the chloralkali process. Iridium radio-isotopes are used in some radio-isotope thermoelectric generators. Using X-ray spectroscopy, the jury is still out on whether Iridium, or its neighbor Osmium in the Table, is the densest metal known.

*explanation insert for followers of star tetrahedron, merkabah, octahedral geometry in crop design:

Star Tetrahedra: octahedron over stellated octahedron, the only full facetting of the cube, allowing upflow and downflow. Created from our original eight cells, the Star Tetrahedron is both our potential and a record of our experiences; balance of male and female, heaven and earth: all that is in a 3D world.
In accepting both polarities, embracing both, understanding we have those polarities within ourselves— knowing that without both we are out of balance—are first teachings of ‘Star Tetrahedron Consciousness’. It teaches balance of yin/yang through embracing both, inside and outside ourselves.
This does not mean giving up identity or silently condoning inhumane action. We are asked to embrace ourselves even more because we understand we are made up of masculine and feminine energies, creative and destructive.
We all have left and right hemispheres. In balance we use both. When we embrace both, we are one with the third dimension, capable of awareness, and embodiment that leads us into oneness or unity consciousness, and into the fifth (and higher) dimension(s). It is a balance of all without forgoing the uniqueness of each.

Back to Iridium: Given its rare molecular structure, its meteoritic state, applications in computer technology, previously the realm of the silicon chip, may be about to change.

From an extra-terrestrial point of view—with humanity’s oversoul—or the combined consciousness of the CC-community clearly demanding closure for the 2013 season, this may be seen as us giving ourselves a technological memory-jog. Industry has known, despite prohibitive cost, and apparent scarcity of Iridium deposits, that the metal’s near-imperishable mechanical and tensile strength makes it a miracle material in extreme conditions of modern human technology. On a camera chip, it flows and blooms according to capacity requirements, acting like the solid state equivalent of a wave, bringing new technology to screen environments and lightning-fast applications.

Yucatan peninsula's  subaquamarine Chicxulub crater, made by largest meteorite to hit Earth, may conceal Iridium-192

Yucatan peninsula’s subaquamarine Chicxulub crater, made by largest meteorite to hit Earth, may conceal Iridium-192

Its scarcity on Earth is almost certainly due to the fact that it is an alien: arriving here on the back of the behemoth meteorite which crashed into Yucatan and the Gulf of Mexico 66 million years ago, causing the extinction of the dinosaurs. The metal has been found nowhere else on earth, except within meteoritic crash sites. Geologists suggest, however, that given its high melting point, residual Iridium may exist in deeper seams beneath the Chicxulub crater, or elsewhere in places of high seismic activity, where volcanic heat may have melted the metal (heat-resistant to 2246ºC). So all is not yet lost!

It is therefore no coincidence that remaining member of the BLT team, Nancy Talbott, whose groundbreaking research of the 1993 Cherhill crop circle laced with an iron glaze of fused particles of apparent meteoritic origin will speak in symposium in June 2014 on meteorite elements in crop circle design. She gives the subject credibility.

… And for the True Geeks among us
Yet another interpretation of the central box of code is that it is pure computer programming: the -Jb switch, -R switch, beloved of html-creators, surrounding the number 192. As a dilettante, Siderealview continues to maintain supreme ignorance over such supergeekness, but it is safe to say the youth of the planet will understand the message loud and clear.

Musically, it is worth noting that 192hz is G on piano keyboard, and its toning resonance used in subliminal cure of stress, meditational facilitation and—apparently—in increasing functionality of sound systems, below.
Recent research relates ancient geometry, astronomy and sacred sites to musical ratio. The international standard of tuning is currently 440Hz = A [J.S. Bach/Nazi influence]. When corrected, the other octaves display ancient Gematrian sacred numbers relative to astronomy, sacred geometry, the Bible and the Bhagavad-gita along with exact longitude and latitude connections to pyramids and other sacred sites, see compassionate use of music in detailed but accurate historical context, Brendan Bombaci’s erudite Cymatics:Dash-of-music-an-inch-of-Sun, sidebar right.

Pure Sound is an area dear to our heart, and how we absorb extreme poles of light spectra continue to puzzle our greatest minds. Carl Sagan, before he died, was mystified how light could become a noise. Our generation has learned that the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum–from radio waves through microwaves, infra-red, visible light, ultra-violet light, to x-rays and gamma rays–are all massless particles (photons) of the universal energy known as electromagnetic radiation, or simply Light. Light waves are fluctuations of electric and magnetic energy through space, usually expressed (by humans) in wavelength or frequency.

Electromagnetic spectrum from radio to light

Electromagnetic spectrum from radio to light

In my years of experience in voicing systems, I’ve found that a system must have a flat-to-slightly-elevated response curve in the critical region from approximately 192Hz to 384Hz. It could be slightly elevated. This range is from one-half octave below middle-C (256 Hz) to one-half octave above; between approximately 192Hz and 384Hz is one musical octave in width.

When a speaker (or electronic component or cable) seems to be lean in this area, the sound will usually prove to be boring musically. Amazingly, components thatare lean in this area are often admiringly described as highly resolved, precise, articulate, etc. My description? BORING…
When this region is flattened, or elevated by a very slight amount, the music is infinitely more involving. Strings have more body. Brass has more weight, and a more burnished tone.

Orchestral music will have a balance (and subjective power response) more akin to live sound in a concert hall. Vocals will have much more palpable presence. The sound will be lusher. Guitars will ring out with a beauty that touches your soul.

Chualar conundrum: Braille-192+hieroglyphic-17+Morse-ISON+isotope divided by infinite π = July 2014?

Much controversy, anguish and tromping/denial of access has weighed down the 2013 crop season; Britain’s most heroic formations were ploughed under—within hours; no specific paranoia cited, but large operations worldwide are no longer as open to human traffic as they were in the 1990s.
For this reason, Rancho Chualar’s owners’ unfortunate malady resulted in sudden reversal of opinion: maybe it’s “genuine”, after all. Perhaps those believers out there aren’t so loony. Ooo, Cosmic Math Class in the Human Oversoul department: now, everyone gets to decode the message. Media circus arrived late to the party.

Dark Rift: Return to the Cosmic Birth Canal
Each year, by Cosmic design, northern nights grow longer in 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, align one more time with our Motherboard-birth canal, the Creator-energy-vortex. The middle of our Milky Way Galaxy is wide open this year on January 4th. The portal remains open—our consciousness being assisted by the ‘blooming’ of its closest neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy crashing into us at imperceptible speed— before the sun spirals away one more time; in the past we should all probably have headed off for another year of peripatetic searching through infinite realms of (imaginary) space.

But this year we are being held momentarily, prompted—our consciousness feels it. Our bodies are more aware, our psyche primed. We are being reminded.

Our own Galaxy merging with Andromeda; note 'blooming' along our edges :)

Our own Galaxy merging with Andromeda; note ‘blooming’ along our edges 🙂

Which brings us full circle to the gentle message from above that alpha, beta and theta waves increase human capacity to expand, imagine, transform; and that our DNA is waiting patiently while we decide whether to join in the parade or not.

One more time, we are being prompted, asked to join the dance; getting a message from our own (inner) Sense to wake up, appreciate the phenomenal gifts provided by our Earth, along with exponentially more potential in our intellect, when used in true alignment: mind, body, spirit. Shall we join minds and bloom? Even that would start us on the road to Ascension: body would only follow.

Perihelion at Galaxy Junction tomorrow: let the Quickening with Andromeda begin.
Sounds like a catchy title for a tune.

Solar-Serpent bonding: Earth’s Love Affair with the Light

August 22, 2012

Let the Voyage begin——

Amid wild celebrations last week for the Mars Curiosity-Rover project, only a small cheer went up in the world of sky-watchers, astronomers and space-fans, to mark on August 20th the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Voyager launches.

What is more significant—but less broadcast—is the fact that Voyager-2 (launched August 20th, 1977) and Voyager-1, (two weeks later on September 5th, 1977)—now at 9.3 billion and 11 billion miles/18 billion kilometers respectively from the sun—are encountering their first brush with a new horizon: the ‘heliopause’~~~ entry into the intersteller void.

Since 2005 Voyager-1 has been exploring the outer layer of the bubble of charged particles which the sun blows around itself: its heliosphere, a cocoon of electromagnetism which buffers it and us, its planetary children, from the bombardment of cosmic rays from interstellar regions.

Suddenly our envoys—the Voyager twins—enter a whole new dimension: heliopause, between solar system and hyperspace

At interstellar interface, NASA expected a trio of changes:
1. strength of solar particle bubble or ‘mist’ to weaken, as the edge of the field, the heliosheath, was reached;
2. increased interaction with the interstellar field and consequent bombardment of cosmic rays;
3. polarity shift of the cosmic magnetic field in relation to the solar magnetic field.

Then last month, in one day—July 28th—as if fulfilling their dreams, data from Voyager-1′s cosmic ray instrument panel showed the level of high-energy cosmic rays originating from outside our solar system had jumped dramatically—by five percent. During the last half of that same day, the level of lower-energy particles originating from inside the solar system had correspondingly dropped—by half. NASA Astrophysicists seemed confident to announce that Voyager-1 has crossed into interstellar space.

Angels and Dragons*
Meanwhile back on Earth, despite continuing adverse weather conditions persisting since July, the croppie community in Wiltshire were holding their breath, waiting for the 2012 season ‘finale’ when, invariably in the past, August makes its last summer statement amid the ‘waves of grain’.

Stanton St Bernard (3 phases); dripping with sundog terminals, light-enhanced sacred temple towers lead to angelic orbs with a fairytale fanstasy feel

In contrast to the glorious summer of 2011, when crop circles seemed blessed by farmers willing to tolerate both their impromptu appearance and the visitors they generated, 2012 circle designs have had a hard time. Long gaps—days of rain with no crop circles—frustrated CC-watchers. The weather is not all to blame. For reasons known only to some farmers themselves, 2012 crop imprints have suffered heavy losses from immediate cutting; but because the CC fraternity—so forgiving, so believing—are backed up by such a strong and dedicated team of hang-gliding, microlite and fixed-wing pilots and photographers, not a single image has been “lost”. The designs may no longer fill a space in the fields, but their images linger in cyberspace for continued enjoyment, meditation, discussion, and analysis—of which there has been plenty.

So those few rare events which survived, especially those like Stanton St.Bernard, above, which attracted successive phases, have been like manna from heaven.

For those who are only now discovering the depth of the croppie belief system, it may help to know that various pet theories perpetuate among long-term students of the phenomenon, particularly in 2012: among them that they display—
—Calendar system(s) of the Maya; where rendezvous with Galactic Center between winter solstice December 21st, 2012 and January 5th, 2013 marks the end of one five-thousand-year cycle and the beginning of another;

—In several native American traditions, 2012 foretold as the time of ‘Return of the Ancestors’; also interpreted as the time when the people of the Earth will see the light and return together to ‘ancestral ways’ of nurture, respect for and—in many cases—worship of sacred places;
—Return of Aztec god Quetzalcoatl—Kukulkan of the Maya—heralded by complex ‘signs in the heavens’, including Venus transit, solar fireworks and striking planetary conjunctions;
—Fulfilment of Biblical prophecies, some based on even earlier Sumerian, Arab or Egyptian myth;
—Heavenly antics, comets, auroral and spectral phenomena and including star and planet alignments not seen for 26,000 years, or one backward cycle of the solar system through all twelve signs of the zodiac on the celestial ecliptic: the precession of the equinoxes.


Voyager and the Voyage

2012 Finale: Woodborough/Picked Hill August 20—earlier designs all rolled into one—feathered serpent head, starlight twinkling terminals, world faith symbols & power of coiled dragon energy dance within an orb—who could ask for more?

It may be wishful thinking to see Voyager’s capsule of electromagnetic plasma in this August 20th —anniversary— crop circle, left; and there are certainly other intriguing similarities in it to explore: it has a recognizable ‘signature’—light-enhanced terminals, feathered-serpent curving orb-filled body—which over this season has made repeat appearances, like a familiar artist illustrating a beloved fairy tale, bringing together individual jigsaw pieces from his house of cards, his rainbow palette, each successive glyph a mirror or a fragment of the one before: to make one cohesive whole. At the same time the Woodborough/Picked Hill creation strikes a chord on a subliminal level, making the subconscious conscious; activating elements within us we barely understand ourselves.

Among the first to arrive, and last to leave, dragon tadpoles (Woodborough, June 9th) offspring of the Woodborough Hill finale, August 20th, have survived intact until harvest this week.

Encapsulated in its multi-liminal design, above, are elements suggested in the earlier motifs (players on June and July’s bucolic stage are described in my July 11th blog); some see this season’s multiple appearances as Earth Energy, Dragon Force, others as the influence of the famed St Michael (ley) line, or fluctuating electromagnetic waves, posing as pictures in already ripe barley and wheatfields.

So, when the apparent finale appeared Monday morning August 20th—harvested within hours by an irate farmer convinced that his field had been vandalized by board-and-string ‘hoaxers’—believers were doubly grateful for the presence-of-mind of at least two microlite/aircraft photographers who were able to capture aerial images for the croppie audience.

From heart chakra to crown via a silver thread to the Soul: kundalini in crop circles

Picked Hill is a marvel of symbolism:

incorporating in electromagnetic shorthand, visual reminders of half a dozen of the season’s most provocative designs, while simultaneously triggering subliminal stimulus in the human observer. It encompasses the oval (‘alien’) head of Hinton Parva, July 25th, mirrored in both Picked Hill-1 ‘nest’ (July 9th, harvested) and Avebury’s triple serpents, August 1st, below, whose own sundog sparkles point SE, indicating the direction of the serpents’ final resting place. In addition, as the observer is led out from the central ‘brain cortex’ of the oval head, it can be visualized as the crown chakra, seen from above (implication: a higher dimensional view) which appears to connect via a slim sparkling sliver—kundalini’s silver umbilical cord of light—to the soul;

the central crescent whose elaborate shadow featured in the Etchilhampton ornate double crescent crop circle of July 28th, below right, is like a decorative pinnacle on a sacred mosque, looking east; but the same Woodborough crown chakra, when skewed horizontally, transforms into an all-seeing eye [eye of Horus, humankind’s pineal gland, inner third eye]; and the feathered headdress associated with Kukulcan, feathered serpent Sun-god of the Maya—another allusion to the mingling of sunlight with dragon energy in the earth; the whole formation is surrounded by the same psychedelic sparkling terminals seen in the fairytale Vimana-angel-sundog formation of Stanton St.Bernard pictured above [phase 1 June 29th, phase 2 July 17th, phase 3 July 20th], completed exactly one month ago.

Woodborough, viewed sideways, displays the all-seeing eye, the crescent forming a glint of light within the iris

Curiously, its feathers cresting the familiar sharp-egg shape—oval—are unevenly spaced and numbered, their axis and that of the central sickle-Muslim crescent aligned a little to the east of south, which has inspired some to calculate ‘moons’ until December solstice this year. We may not all be left-hemisphere calculators with determination to master complex number systems, but spatially, there are other pointers in the formation. As apex of a triangle no more than half a mile across, its imaginary SE arm points to July 9th ‘nesting serpent’ (obliterated), while a half mile to SW, the triangle’s other arm alights on the energy serpent/tadpole babies spawned June 9th on the other side of Picked Hill—miraculously still intact. This is where the solar-serpent love affair has come to rest. In spite of having her first nest trashed, she chose Picked Hill to return and try again.

At a most basic level, magnetic fields are produced only by electricity; and the powerful limestone aquifer of Wiltshire, in particular around Woodborough, Alton Barnes, Milk Hill and Avebury, invariably attracts and produces conditions conducive to the generation of that energy. So, with new eyes, we may wish to observe Earth within the context of our Universe as electrically charged, electrically based and electrically-operated. Fluctuating solar flares and increasing sunspot activity only encourage the love affair perpetuated from the dawn of time between our star and our Earth Mother. It needs only a tiny stretch of the imagination to feel the deep resonance between such a powerful star and its watery planet offspring. Each year as solar energy beats down (sometimes mercilessly) on the Pale Blue Dot we call home, we revel in summer, anticipate another crop circle season, and enjoy the timeless beauty of light, on which we all depend. August is a month of bountiful plenty; of forgetfulness of what winter resurrects when our star deserts us to shine on the opposite hemisphere.

Miraculously, a power greater than we can imagine ordains that even after the severest of winters, our star—forever entwined in its loving embrace with our serpent/Earth mother—will see us through and the light will return.

The journey of 2012 may seem little different from, say, 2011, 2010, but we don’t all have to be empaths to figure that something fundamental has changed. It’s not just that Voyager has reached the outer edge of our system of knowledge, and the journey onward from here into the unknown is one we all now must share responsibly, no longer take for granted.

Our ancestors—from diverse cultures and traditions—all shared earth wisdom as part of understanding life’s cycles. The crop circle theme of 2012, if one single theme is identifiable, may be just that: we are passengers in a starship driving rudderless through the void; and while the engine powering our voyage towards Galactic Center at midwinter clearly adores our Mother-Serpent-Earth, it is a carefree lover, with eight other planets in tow, careening headlong towards the Dark Rift in the Milky Way, with the same abandon displayed by the Voyager interstellar probes who even now are entering their own new region of space. We, human operators of the Earth ship have a responsibility as caretakers and it is time to take care of our home. We are made up of stardust, “billion year-old carbon”, and we…

Solstice Space Weather Forecast & the Meteorological Signs

June 22, 2012

CROP ALERT!

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

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

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

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

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

Oare-Pewsey triangle crop circle June 20, 2012 in barley, near same heart-shaped wood featured solstice 2010

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

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

And so, the enigma continues.

Pewsey Phi-spiral coded crop circle, solstice 2010, below heart-shaped wood

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

Much Ado About Little Wenlock

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

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

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

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

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

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

But, back to weather portents!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Manton Drove, Marlborough ‘Polar clock’ June 2nd. Circuits from centre outwards measure 1. month 2. date 3. day of week 4.hour 5. minute 6. second: predicts Saturday August 4th. There is no circuit for the (current) year

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

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

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

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

Crop Circles 2012: Archive Retrieval from our own Consciousness

May 2, 2012

Yarnbury, on A303 to Stonehenge: 2012's second crop circle in oil seed rape--canola--photo courtesy Steve Alexander

“Now it begins… needles and pins…” Miss Toni Fisher The Big Hurt

The 2012 Crop Circle season is a little late, but it is underway. This Wiltshire pattern arrived in a night of heavy rain, after a month of downpours, but showing no sign of crop abuse (stalks intact); more rain since then has, however, had an impact. Britain’s second crop design for the season appeared in oil seed rape, at Yarnbury Castle, Winterbourne Stoke near Stonehenge, last Saturday–April 28th–on the same day as European-African swallows returned en masse to their British breeding grounds.

Alton Priors Code-tailed Swallow crop circle of June 2009 has never been 'decoded'

It is an interesting coincidence that one of several crop designs imprinted in code–one which the ‘experts’ have yet to decode–is the gigantic swallow crop circle of June 27th, 2009 at Alton Priors. It appeared one year after–and in the same field as–a herald swallow, without coded tail.

world communications fracture?

We have blogged before on the archetypal swallow and its significance in all northern cultures. It symbolized loyalty, faith, honor, love, hope and safe return. In this post on swallow symbolism, many cultures look to the bird as a representative of the light.

On the other hand, code has been penetrating our consciousness shields in other ways…

Even before the European crop circle season began, on April 15th at East Kennett, the honor again fell to Hidalgo province, Mexico, to lead the crop circle world in astonishment, as overnight a ten-acre wheatfield was used as a cosmic database whiteboard, like a screenshot from ‘The Matrix’. Mexican authorities and croppies worldwide are still trying to untangle the web of “alien” words imprinted in the ripening grain, which delighted computer code freaks, who set about converting it into electronic instructions. Locals in the northern suburb were delighted to be the ones to witness the formations being made, reporting lights descending during the night, and ‘buzzing’ while the crop was being imprinted. When the field was monitored next morning, readings of great fluctuations in heat, and sparking electromagnetic static were measured and recorded. The team’s compasses didn’t work, and the local farmers’ cows wouldn’t give milk the following day.

When Tula-Iturbe Farmers noticed that the code embedded in growing wheat was allowing the crop to continue to grow, as, according to the young reporter, none of the stems in the whole field was broken, they were even more convinced that they were being singled out for a cosmic message. “The writing in the field happened in such a short time and there was no noise except for the light sparks”, admitted one resident.

The event occurred on the night of February 27th, 2012 during the Mexican festival to celebrate the national flag–Dia de la Bandera. Rural Tula-Iturbe is a northern satellite community of Tula de Allende, the city famed for standing within the bounds of ancient Toltec capital, Tollan-Xicocotitlan, see this report on last year’s crop circles that appeared in Tula at equinox–one of Mexico’s most celebrated festivals.

World communications blackout?
The Winterbourne Stoke glyph could not be more different from the Mexican formation; but its small, contained design is somewhat similar to the logo for one of Earth’s largest telecommunications corporations. It is tempting to suggest that the positioning of the crop design so that the middle axis lies across one of the tractor ‘tramlines’, enhances the fracture between left and right curves, positioned offset from one another–and emphasized by the median (machine-made) line. Given the remarkable recovery of our sun from solar minimum of a few years ago, its recent active storms, plasma CMEs–coronal mass ejections–of almost weekly M- or X-class flare [alerts on the NOAA solar-geomagnetic indicator, sidebar right] producing subsequent electronic disturbances and power outages; it is a short mental leap to seeing the Winterbourne Stoke design as shorthand for a breakdown in world communications; and it is too much of coincidence that the ‘logo’ appeared only twenty miles due south of that estimable telecoms corporation’s British headquarters in the ancient Wessex burgh of Malmesbury; but I run ahead of myself…

Astrolabe crop circle below Milk Hill, solstice week 2009, appeared in three phases, the tail code manifesting last; its message remains undecoded


Celestial happenings in 2012
Solar disturbances
aside, there are several other events in the heavenly lineup for 2012, not least the long-awaited transit of Venus on June 6th:
May 4th: partial lunar eclipse, visible off Mexico
May 5th: full ‘supermoon‘, closest to earth (perigee at 221,000 miles instead of usual quarter-million mile distance);therefore “large”
May 4th-5th peak of Eta Aquarids, meteor shower from debris of Halley’s comet
May 14th first standstill Venus during retrograde loop
May 20th annular eclipse of Sun, visible in Pacific states and western U.S.*
June 4th partial lunar eclipse, visible Asia N.America
June 6th transit of Venus and Inferior Conjunction
November 13th 2012 total solar eclipse in which sun and moon align with head of the Serpent (constellation Serpens), visible only in Pacific Polynesia
November 18th Solar system conjunct dark ridge Galactic Center
Nov 28 partial (penumbral) lunar eclipse.

*Alone, May’s annular eclipse (sun’s disk not totally occluded) will stimulate response from thousands of daytime viewers, as the path of the phenomenon starts early afternoon on the Oregon/NoCal border, moving through Nevada, Utah and Arizona, passing in late afternoon over a corner of Colorado, New Mexico, and ending at sunset in Texas. But then, two weeks later, tens of thousands will be geared up to watch the rare transit of Venus‘s solitary disk, as it crosses in front of the sun, from our earth-view–highest visibility in NW Pacific states. This paired event will not happen again this century.

Twelve-petalled flower motif at Hill Barn, East Kennett, April 15th, 2012, in canola

At the beginning of a season, it is easy to lapse into speculation of how the soon-to-come surprises will impact our consciousness: for a group awareness now exists, watching as this long-heralded year opens its doors to never-before seen messages in the corn. If one believes that Consciousness creates Reality; then to no small degree the Crop Circle Community, worldwide, combines its anticipation–swallow-code: hope, expectation–to ‘create’ whatever comes next. It is only our preoccupation with the external measurement of Time which is seen by our logical conscious mind as a hurdle to understanding what our subconscious is already working away merrily on.

To a degree, that scenario completely ignores the fact that the Earth herself, a biological, pulsing, cohesive, supportive (sentient) being, may be capable of sparking electromagnetic vortices–like the subterranean aquifer of Wiltshire-Salisbury Plain–into producing high sonic, low-resolution heat, electrostatic charges which twist and manipulate plant stems into ethereal forms.

However potent is Earth’s own energy, it is on record that previous crop circle groups have combined their meditations/expectations of a design, willing it to appear; and been gratified when something close to their dream manifested.

2012 is already hyped as Apocalypse, EndTimes, Rebirth, New Aquarian Age, but it is also the time when the Maya predicted we would renew ourselves as a (human) race; when their Great Cycle would climax, and it would feel to us like ‘coming home’–their and the Hopi’s ‘Return of the Ancestors‘.

the alternate view...

Whichever way you see this exciting new start in Wiltshire: as a simple manufactured work of art by fairies, or aliens without human feet; as electromagnetic current produced by the conductive Wiltshire limestone aquifer; or as a physical manifestation of our own human Group Consciousness; I believe that, at some timeless level, we are retrieving our own memory archives, our own record of our growth together as a world society: delving into the Akashic Records to pull out yet another surprise season of meaningful designs which will keep much of humanity on the edge of its seats for the rest of the performance.

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,
photo Olivier Morel

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.

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.

Don’t Go Back to Sleep

Puerta de Hayu Marca-- Gate of the Gods-- in the Stone Forest, Puno, Titicaca, Peru

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t go back to sleep, Rumi (1207-1273)

July is High Summer. Time to appreciate earthly gifts. This is brought into sharp focus if one has been through the wringer, as the human race has since early March this year.

So far 2011 has been no ordinary year. There have been revelations and revealings in the way Society conducts business and the Earth has moved for many — literally and metaphorically. Heads of world organizations have rolled and words like ‘transparency’ and ‘integrity’ have surfaced in political speeches and media news. Earth tremors, flash floods, famine and raging wildfires have contributed to more human anguish, but world charitable associations announce greater generosity of giving than ever before.

Becoming Star-wise

More ephemeral than most: Sun crop motif, June 28th, at Allington, Devizes, Wiltshire, cut same day by the farmer,

Earlier, in the June crop circles, designs seemed to indicate a new twist to the cosmic tale — directing devotees to look heavenward — with planetary alignments reflected in the corn, along with solstitial renderings of meandering comets and other cosmic bodies, inner solar system orbits and a succession of surprise visitors from the void.

Crop circle at Allington (2), also June 28th, repeats a solar-orbiting theme

Two crop circles at Allington Devizes appeared to react to human intervention. After the first sun motif (Allington [1], above, June 28) was unceremoniously cut, another appeared in a neighboring field that same afternoon — at Allington [2], left.

Circlemakers are nothing if not persistent.

These celestial motifs served to bring to the notice of the less-observant croppie that much is changing in our Universe, with a lot of it being witnessed in our skies in this and coming months.

2010 launch: space shuttle Endeavor from Cape Canaveral to 185 miles, prolonged photo exposure by James Vernacotola

Even the less-aware city-dweller realized (via tv/internet) that there is more to last Friday’s final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis than dollars. Atlantis docked last night at the International Space Station. ISS is becoming a reality: a means of global cooperation and understanding. It also signals our level of commitment to stepping off into Space.

Hubble images, the process of measuring comets, scanning distant stars, monitoring our own Sun — 3D and 360º — and other such esoteric descriptive metaphors have entered the language.

Instead of ‘street-wise’, we are becoming star-wise.

Then July changed the tune.

At Honey Street, a little south of the Wiltshire crop circle “hub”, Alton Barnes, a small crop glyph — like a body launching into orbit — had materialized overnight in a field outside the Barge Inn on June 26th. One week later, two more designs appeared: an apparently unfinished ‘sword’ motif in the same field; and another — coded script between two circular terminals of exquisitely-laid wheat — 100 yards south of the second formation. See my immediately previous blog and Youngbloodblog for details.

Honey Street July 4th unfinished Swords message: potential yet to be fulfilled

Swords, in Tarot interpretation, rule the unseen realm of air. Their symbolism deals with matters of the intangible: thought and mind. Many scholars also consider Swords to represent challenges or difficulties. But challenges which will be overcome — sliced through with scimitar-like precision.

Just as many schools of thought would recognize a challenge as an opportunity, Tarot Swords represent a window into the realm of intangibles — the imagination. Looking at the ‘unfinished’ crop circle at Honey Street laid out overnight July 4th, (Four of Swords), the Tarot interpretation suggests: ‘the card of solitude and the need to experience time apart from others to gather one’s thoughts and feelings before entering the fray.’ The calm before the storm.

There has certainly been a lot of fray. And it seems there will be more.

On the surface, the suit of Swords represents:

Five of Swords: formation completed July 6th; achievement, Phoenix-like at the tip of its touch

The Mind
Perception
Observation
Self-Image
Ego

Its often starkly-depicted imagery is used in some Tarot designs to indicate the intense importance of the Mind. Do not mess with the realm of Mind: it is serious business. Do not approach Mind lightly. It is one of the most powerful, incredible devices in the Universe.

In Tarot as well as in real life, the mind, although a wondrous tool if used rightly, can also hold potential for sinister mutilation of self and others.

Two days later, the Four of Swords formation was ‘completed’: became Five.

Five of Swords signifies something overwhelmingly more exposed: Open dishonor, sacrificing integrity in the face of public scrutiny and acting in self-interest, indulging in power-plays; experiencing defeat by some of the greatest challenges we face in this highly-competitive world.

It is not insignificant that over the July 4th weekend world attention was focused (in the US) on the commemoration of a 1776 event which ousted the British and (in Britain) on the scandal of international business dealings of a newspaper empire which were less than ethical and had American investors exiting in droves.

Milk Hill Celtic knot phase two July 8th, 2011: the infinite triangle; without beginning or end

By contrast, the following weekend, after the appearance of a double-phase (July 6th and 8th) Celtic Triskele at favored Milk Hill itself — a Trinity knot symbolizes perpetuity and faith in the infinite: a celebration of endless cycles of time, human ingenuity and beauty– world attention was focused on Prince William and Kate. Darlings of world media, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge completed a whirlwind tour of Canada, and arrived in southern California to be greeted by a stunned Hollywood (not easily stunned), going on to star as royal guests at a massive charity BAFTA black-tie Saturday night event on July 9th. The breezy and beautiful young couple’s arrival in the City of the Angels provided an exercise in human leveling: allowing the world to see glitz and glamor through a different set of eyes.

Triskele: Celtic Trinity knot symbolizing the power of the feminine, returning to balance after extreme acts in an opposite direction

Milk Hill is not only the world’s most desirable (crop-circle-decorated, eco-friendly) location, but it happens to be the highest point in Wiltshire, at 968ft. That makes it almost a mountain! Its undulating outline is also home to the Alton Barnes White Horse (c. 1812) carved in chalk and lovingly maintained by the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group.

During one single intervening week — between crop circle phases 1 & 2 Honey Street Swords Suite (July 4 & 6) and 1 & 2 Milk Hill Trinity Knot (July 6 & 8), a whole world changed.

Suddenly, instead of a sound-asleep Great British news public reading tabloid media which pandered to its so-called ‘hunger for grime and crime’, ethics, dignity and a sense of honorable balance stepped on to the stage and wiped one of the main players off the boards. Integrity followed as multi-million dollar advertizing contracts were cancelled with its media umbrella ownership, and some of earth’s Meek (the divine feminine; believers in truth, kindness and gentle ways) felt a little giddy as they came up for air in a new atmosphere.

The White Horse of Milk Hill might well be seen as the milk white charger bearing the archetypal knight-in-shining-armor to the rescue of Humanity. Or, in Electric-Universe-speak:

The Milk-white Avenging Angel —Plasma Universe-style — bringing a message from the Milky Way

The Celtic gods –alongside archetypes from other ancient cultures– were smiling on the human race for a brief glimpse in time and sending their support in crop circle language for their avid interpreters to spread the word.

The Peruvian Portal
The opening image of this blog post features an enigmatic doorway carved into volcanic rock in the Stone Forest — a unique area of petrified shapes: people, spirits, gods, cities in stone — 35km from Puno, Peru. The local people [los Indios], descendants of the Inca, believe it to be a star portal or stargate through which one may travel — at certain times — to experience immortality. The doorway measures precisely seven metres high and seven metres wide, with a central aperture in the lower doorway just 2m high. In 1996 a local mountain guide rediscovered the doorway after it had been lost to modern eyes for 1500 years. He was overcome by its presence. He said: “It was like a revelation from God…”

Golden disc: key of the gods of the Seven Rays -- opens the Peruvian portal

“I have dreamed of such a construction repeatedly over the years, but in the dream the path to the door was paved with pink marble, and with pink marble statues lining either side of the path. In the dream, I also saw that the smaller door was open and there was a brilliant blue light coming from what looked like a shimmering tunnel within.”
Jose Luis Delgado Mamani

Inca legend describes it as the ‘gateway to the Land of the gods’ and that their greatest heroes in earliest times were chosen to walk through the portal to join their gods in a life of immortality. That, when the Spanish conquistadores arrived and began looting the Inca empire, Aramu Muru—also written Amaru Meru—a shaman/priest of the Incan temple of the Seven Rays, secretly escaped with the sacred Inca golden disc — the ‘Key of the Gods of the Seven Rays’ — and hid in the mountains of Hayu Marca. When he came upon the Portal, watched by its sacred shaman-protectors, he offered them the Key. The golden disc opened the portal for him to walk through.

There is a small disc-shaped aperture at the side of the human-scale opening which is said to be where the key might be placed if it is ever rediscovered. The Inca portal legend concludes with the prophecy that the stargate will one day open to ‘many times larger than its actual size… and allow the gods to return in their “sun ships”…’

Inca sun ships… Wiltshire crop circles calling on the sacred imagery of the Celts, avenging swords, the essence of Tarot divination, suggesting the power of the Mind and Imagination…

We are capable of dreaming our own future… if we choose to wake up, invoke mastery, practise self-discipline, and ask help from Nature — the gentle energy of Mother Earth. She is, after all, our genetic archetype: the divine Feminine in all her guises, our parent in the bewildering vastness of the Cosmos.

“…(if we sell you our land), you must keep it apart and sacred, as a place where Man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened by the meadow flowers. The earth is our Mother. What befalls the Earth befalls all the sons of the earth”
Chief Seattle to the American Government, 1854

This euphoric glimpse into Dreamtime may not last. The bad guys might still find other devious ways to control the populace… But for a few brief days in early July, we woke up. There was a buzz on the internet, on Twitter and on Facebook, that maybe there is a Heaven after all. And… more encouraging…that maybe we’re still capable — in our Imagination’s Dreamtime — of getting there.

Battlestar E.L.E.: Extinction or Elevation Event?

June 24, 2011

Human 'cosmophobia' given expression in disaster movies

SciFi epics are all the rage these days. Television and the internet regularly screen such marvels of CGI (computer-generated imaging) as the amazing 1950s classic, ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ rereleased 2008, and Dennis Quaid’s (2004) ‘Day After Tomorrow’. What they have in common are scenes of human extinction, the battle for Earth against cosmic forces; an unprepared planet at the mercy of the Final Frontier. Even more heroic — human ingenuity in the face of impending disaster — were earlier blockbusters like the classic (1972) Bruce Dern ‘Silent Running’, Roland Emmerich’s (director of Day After Tomorrow) Independence Day (1996) and the Bruce Willis spacetale, Armageddon, 1998, the latter depicting incoming deep space objects of massive proportions. Independence Day served to insert the acronym ELE (extinction-level event) into popular idiom. Conflated by huge world interest in the zero hour of cultural calendar systems in December 2012, the human imagination soars.

Comet Elenin: incoming at the edge of Mars orbit, but still invisible to backyard Earth telescopes

So it is into this fertile ground that the UFOlogist media and internet doom-blogs plant scary stories about incoming celestial objects: for instance, the current preoccupation with:
comet C/2010 X1 Elenin (discovered 10-12-10)
comet C/2011 L3 McNaught (his 68th discovery)
and stray wanderers from the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. There is even an acronym for them: PHAs: potentially-hazardous asteroids.

It is true, comet Elenin, discovered December 10 2010 by Russian astrometrist Leonid Elenin, appeared to take American space-sweeping probes by surprise; the Russian announcement prompted the backdated release of a document detailing NASA’s preparations for (potentially) destructive deep-space objects in near-earth orbit (NEO), seen in the Letter from the White House last October, supposedly before Elenin was discovered by the Russian astronomer. However the Obama Administration’s budget request for NASA for 2011 called for near-quadrupling of the 2010 budget for NEO-surveillance from $5.8million to $20.3million. So it is likely there was already knowledge ‘within the system’ of an impending threat.

Cosmophobia
Not all the Elenin-hype is ballistic. Some respected names gathered in Honolulu mid-June, to discuss the significance of Elenin’s earth-grazing orbit later this year on September 11 (10th anniversary of 9/11) and October 28 — coinciding with the end-date of the Mayan calendar (Carl Calleman version). The Camelot Roundtable Elenin video Conference, June 24th, was hosted by Kerry Cassidy, featuring Richard Hoagland, Dr Joseph Farrell, Keith Hunter, Dr Carl Johan Calleman, and Andy Lloyd.

Earth alone against the Cosmos

“We live in nervous times, and conspiracy theories and predictions of disaster are more popular than ever. I like to use the word cosmophobia for this growing fear of astronomical objects and phenomena, which periodically runs amok on the Internet. Ironically, in pre-scientific times, comets were often thought to be harbingers of disaster, mostly because they seemed to arrive unpredictably -– unlike the movements of the planets and stars, which could be tracked on a daily and yearly basis.”
David Morrison, planetary astronomer and senior scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center

End-Times Scenario
There are several versions of the Elenin story on the internet, not least that of the believers in its causing a pole reversal or blackout of the sun. However, astronomical observation has thus far estimated Elenin’s mass to be not larger than recent historical comets.

Elenin emergency window: preparing for underground living in the Ozarks

“The bottom line is this: Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin is coming, and it will pass by Earth at an extremely safe distance -– 100 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. It will not be changing direction between now and then, it will not exert any gravitational effect on Earth, its magnetic field is nonexistent and there are no Star Destroyers cruising in its wake. The biggest effect it will have on Earth is what we are able to learn about it as it passes –- after all, it is a visitor from the far reaches of our solar system and we won’t be seeing it again for a very, very long time.”
Jason Major, The UniverseToday

It is curious, therefore, that NASA’s WISE telescope, the Wide-field Infrared survey Explorer (launched December 2009) had its NEO-scanning/sky mapping telescope ‘shut down’ in February 2011, after only a year in orbit. NASA/JPL announced it would be in ‘hibernation until needed’.

Might one suggest that NASA is not giving the full story? After all even we, hoi polloi, the uninitiated masses, know that solar eruptions and increasingly frequent coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have a trigger effect on communications, both on the electromagnetic field of terrestrial networks and satellites in orbit.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch…where were all the crop circles? Why weren’t they signaling their annual messages in code?

The Late Crop Circle season of 2011

Britain — in particular, Wessex and the southwest — had a remarkably dry spring; April was the hottest on record; grain in wheatfields was not swelling for lack of rain, the ground was cracking: a phenomenon usually restricted to northern European farming communities in France and Spain. May turned wet and cool: a little late to quench parched soil or fill shrunken seedheads. English field crops were looking a little like north African desert-paddies. There were more inspiring crop circles in Italy than in Oxfordshire.

The farming community in England was on the point of raising a cheer because so very few (11 total) circles of intricate design had appeared in Wiltshire and Hampshire during April and May. Perhaps they might survive a whole season from planting until harvest, without their crops being trampled upon by sightseers…

And then, just as the longest day – solstice/June 21st – approached, things started hotting up. Two meaningful designs –seen to be astronomically connected– showed up on June 18th: one at Louth in Lincolnshire near the Humber estuary (rather far away from the usual Wiltshire hub), sporting a telescopic lens with three crescent moons; and the other at Kings Somborne, Hampshire — avidly pounced on and analyzed by the croppie community for its clear depiction of the inner solar system — but showing a couple of ‘intruders’. Two nights later, four more materialized out of the corn overnight on solstice itself. These were, as expected, back in the Wiltshire heartland. Croppies breathed a sigh of relief.

The great trilithons of Stonehenge are renowned for being inaccessibile most of the year, but the bronze age astronomical stone clock is famously opened to the public and special interest groups for their celebration of the rising sun over the heel stone at dawn on summer solstice. So it was fortuitous that two of the four crop circles appearing on June 20/21 (at Winterbourne Stoke, near Stonehenge) –seemed to arrive just in time for that human solstitial ritual.

While the Stonehenge formations at Winterbourne Stoke were interesting, it was the earlier motifs of the inner solar system and lunar symbolism which caught the attention of the analysts. Some interpeters have suggested increasing earth tremors in a longterm timeframe (including dates extending through 2012-13-14).There has been a rash of speculation on Facebook. In the scientific domain, veteran crop circle detective-mathwiz-numerologist Red Collie –Dr. Horace R. Drew– was quick to come up with an astro scenario for the ‘inner solar system’ Cow Drove Hill formation at Kings Somborne, using NASA/JPL’s near-earth object imaging program, reproduced as a single image here for June 26th, 2011; courtesy CropCircleConnector and NASA/JPL. Collie feels something is imminent this weekend: in the solstitial period between June 24-27, 2011.

NASA/JPL NEO imaging for Elenin approach with orbital positions of the inner planets at June 26, 2011, courtesy JPL

He likens the diagram to the 2009 astrolabe crop circle formed in three phases at Milk Hill below the White Horse at Alton Barnes…

‘…an astronomical event predicted at Milk Hill in June 2009, where some “mystery object” was supposed to suddenly brighten not far from the orbit and location of Mars in June of 2011, after a five-planet alignment in early June’
Dr Horace Drew — ‘Red Collie’

There was indeed a five-planet alignment in our dawn skies in the month of May and early June. And comets Elenin and McNaught are headed our way. Elenin is presently clearing the outer perimeter of Mars’ orbit. Intruder number one.

By his reckoning, [with the help of NASA’s NEO generation], the solar system orbits and the inner planets’ positions indicated in the crop circle plot to planetary positions ranging between the dates of June 21-27, 2011. Collie also suggested that the contemporary crop appearance in Lincolnshire with its three crescent moons “and a spiral symbol, suggesting perhaps three days later on June 21”.

I tend rather to believe that, as earth-wisdom and ancient belief systems were accustomed to likening ‘moons’ to months, the Humber estuary formation at Louth is more likely to be directing our attention (through the ‘scope) to three months’ hence: to a time in late September 2011 when, according to the JPL graphic prediction, above, comet Elenin will be nearing its closest approach to Earth orbit i.e. on its outward journey to deep space, it will graze our planetary path within 0.2AU of Earth, at just under 2million miles away (or 1,860,000 miles) along our path round the sun, just before we fly through the debris of its retreating tail. While, according to NASA scientists, quoted, the comet’s tail may not produce fireworks, it might very well affect our weather systems. So far Spaceweather has had very little to say about that. Again, we shall have to wait and see.

Others have seen yesterday’s earthquake in Japan as a sign of confirmation. [The June 23rd tremor was a Richter 6.7 and no loss of life was reported]. In realtime, sunspot 1236 erupted on June 21st, ejecting a CME earthwards, expected June 24th. Both NOAA and SpaceWeather predict geomagnetic storms. The BBC is forecasting a heatwave for England and Wales!

Part of the ‘intruder’ conundrum may be resolved in a last-minute ‘surprise discovery’ by NASA for Monday next week:

ASTEROID FLYBY: Newly-discovered asteroid 2011MD will pass only 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles) above Earth’s surface on Monday, June 27th.

NASA analysts say there is no chance the space rock will strike Earth. Nevertheless, the encounter is so close that Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory Spaceweather

Intruder number two.

We may indeed be in for a rough spell of spaceweather, and given that ‘Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory’ — that’s another way of saying it might very well come closer than they think. Besides, our Moon coasts round us at a mean distance of 239,000 miles. Asteroid ‘Doc'[2011MD] will graze us inside moon orbit 32 times closer than the moon herself. Even without earth’s gravitational pull, it means the asteroid will pass within two earth atmospheres of Earth (the thermosphere, highest of earth’s atmospheric layers, reaches to a depth of 6,000km from earth. The asteroid will ‘fly-by’ at 12,000km). That’s pretty close. Spaceweather forecasters must have thought that, too, as their announcement describes its passage as ‘above’ us, rather than the usual astronomical (impersonal) ‘passage by’ us.

Westwoods Maltese Cross with deer-heads/vesica piscis: June 21st crop motif, suggesting peaceful intent and awareness of the sacred, will see us through

We on the surface are, however, becoming more aware as a planetary community and throughout the last few months of terrestrial storms and seismic upheaval, have gained experience as a human family to pull together both physically (with world aid agencies helping the stricken) and psychically (through a process of planetary unification, meditation, or Unity Consciousness) and we have seen how the consciousness of belief/oneness can mediate some of the worse-case scenarios. Consciousness-raising networks are even suggesting using crop circle motifs as a meditation focus. So, amidst human turmoil, there is yet hope.


Several interpretations have appeared on the internet and YouTube, but this video by Joan Wheaton gives an excellent insight into this solstitial message from the Light/orbs.
Thank you, Joan-ShumNYabai.

The battle for Earth is not precisely the best metaphor: a metaphorical concept of peace is better than one of war. And we are learning to appreciate and care for our fragile eco-world in the nick of time, because –unless we want to live underground on the Moon or in Silent Running-like bubbles on Mars — it’s the only one we’ve got. Let us pray that our Collective Consciousness — Humanity’s Oversoul — epitomized by our wonderful crop circle shorthand, is still aiming for our Highest Good.
