Just as Jupiter squared Uranus this week, scientists reported Monday that they had witnessed the brighest supernova ever seen as a massive star, 150 times bigger than our Sun, blew itself up 240 million light years away. This event forced scientist back to the drawing board to understand how stars die since it was previously thought that the demise of a star would pull them into a black hole. The star’s death produced a huge thermonuclear explosion that spewed star material into space.

The amount that we don’t know about the universe we live in is staggering. Discoveries such as this which explode the current scientific paradigm (Jupiter/Uranus) also serve to open our minds to new possibilities of the world in which we live.

The Seven Sisters of the Pleaides


Bram asked for an elaboration after yesterday’s post of the Moon with the Pleaides …

The Seven Sisters are the seven stars in the Pleiades star cluster which is located in the Taurus constellation. In mythology they were daughters of the Titan Atlas. In the myth that I like, Atlas sided with the Titans in their unsuccessful war against the Olympians (and his brothers, the other Titans) and as a result was told by Zeus to stand at the edge of the Earth and hold up the sky. Alternative myths say that he was forced to carry the Earth but there is some debate about that.

With their father Atlas safely out of the way, Orion pursued the seven daughters of Atlas. For their protection, Zeus turned the sisters into doves and then placed them among the stars. After Orion’s death he was placed in the sky next to the Pleaidean sisters.

The Pleaides have been a source of wonder for thousands of years and are connected to the agricultural seasons. They have inspired poets and guided sailors, and many ancient buildings were aligned to collect light from the star cluster including the Parthenon and Mayan temples. More recently they have inspired students of consciousness ascension who view the Pleiadean system as a stargate of multidimensional information.

When Uranus and Neptune conjoined in the early 1990s there was a flood of “channeled” information from beings supposedly in the Pleaidian and Sirian star clusters. Some say the Sirians were bad and Pleaideans good. Some say the Pleaideans were bad and the Sirians more advanced. I personally find channeling of intergalactic beings to be altogether too Neptunian to trust. In addition, dependence on someone who channels information for us […]

The Moon and the Seven Sisters

To remind us that in the midst of darkness there is beauty and magic in our Universe, this photo comes from Iran and shows the Moon as it conjoins the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades.

Hexagons and Saturn

photo from

posted the other day –

Isn’t it amazing and uncannily synchronous? In the middle of our discussion about the effects of the Saturn-Neptune opposition, suddenly government scientists announce the discovery of an incredible hexagonal vortex on Saturn’s north pole. . . .

The hexagon is found in honeycombs, snowflakes, and crystal structures. . . .

The hexagon is one of the seven structures found in crystal geometry — seven being the number of “classical” planets, days of the week (named after planets), and chakras, to name a few. As I stumbled on that piece of the puzzle, I came across another odd bit of information. Guido von List, a turn-of-the-century occultist, was said to have based his system of the Armanen runes on a hexagonal crystal. “Hagal,” which he called the “mother-rune,” represented the hexagonal crystal itself. According to some modern interpretations, Hagal indicates illness, disruption, and general bad luck, along with setbacks and delays.

Gee, what planetary influence does that sound like?

In the non-natural world, the hexagon is widely used in architecture and design, especially in tile work. There are some great photos on this page, which is part of the geometry curriculum at Dartmouth. What’s especially fascinating is the design using hexagons to create an illusion of three-dimensional cubes.

Illusion. That’s what the material world ultimately is. [Correlating to the influence of Neptune which urges us to reach beyond the boundaries of the material world.] And the cosmic force we associate with Saturn determines the structure of the material plane.

This hexagon covers the entire north pole of the planet and first appeared in photographic images 26 years ago. Atmospheric expert and team member Kevin Baines says […]

Solar Minimum Has Arrived

Beginning in February of this year, the Sun has been completely blank with no sunspots. NASA solar physicist David Hathaway says “Solar minimum has arrived.” In 2004, he predicted that solar minimum, a period of low sunspot activity, would arrive in late 2006 and it appears it has come a bit early.

Sunspots are “great islands of magnetism”–force fields that are cooler than the rest of the Sun. They contract and expand and change as they move across the surface of the Sun. Some scientists believe there is a connection between solar activity and climate change, and a period of low solar activity between 1666 and 1700, known as the Maunder Minimum, to have coincided with the “mini ice age” of that period, bringing bitterly cold winters to Europe and heightened volcanic activity.

What will this period of decreased energy bring to human consciousness? Astrologically, the Sun represents the individual Self, warming and encouraging our spirit to grow and evolve, just as the Sun warms and encourages growth of plants. High levels of solar activity bring an increased degree of electromagnetic energy, stimulating our own bioenergetic fields and heightening our awareness of higher realms of consciousness. Intense electromagnetic stimulation, such as what we sometimes find in a transit of Uranus, can be ungrounding and somewhat disturbing to our earth-bound natures.

has extensively researched the field of magnetobiology, which shows how organisms respond to the Earth’s magnetic fields, and how the Sun affects those fields. If high sunspot activity causes the earth’s magnetosphere to grow in size and amplify those affects, as he claims, then low sunspot activity is apt to minimize those effects.

Since the […]
