My post the other day on Philip Sedgwick’s blog cited an article by Bruce Fenton on his site 2012 Rising about the Hopi “Blue Star Kachina” prophecy. My post echoed Philip’s dismissal of Comet Holmes as the “Blue Star Kachina” because I had completely forgotten the astounding behavior of Comet Holmes as it exploded in the sky last year. In a matter of hours, the comet brightened 400,000 times in a manner that scientists could not explain. I really should have remembered it because this became a bit of an obsession to me at the time.
Now that we are under the influence of Mercury Retrograde, I’d like to go back and revisit the comet with this new perspective. One of the fascinating synchronicities about the explosion of Comet Holmes was the fact that it exploded in brightness just as Pluto conjoined the Galactic Center. No one really knew what to expect under this influence, but there was quite a bit of conjecture and an exploding comet seemed to be quite significant.
Bruce responded in the comments to my post the other day that Hopi elders had agreed that the Comet Holmes was the Blue Star Kachina that had been prophesied, and commented that this was a distinct possibility:
Comet Holmes gaseous shell is blue/turquoise in color. I viewed it through my unfiltered telescope last year and it was definitely blue in tint. Hubble pictures confirm the same. Comet Holmes appeared “out of the blue”. This small, insignificant periodic comet, whose orbit moves just inside of Mars and then to the other side of Jupiter, put on a display that had astronomers shaking their heads in disbelief. In a matter of 40 hours it brightened from mag 17 (invisible to only the biggest telescopes) to mag 2.8 (easily naked eye). That’s an increase of over 500,000. This is the most significant cometary outburst on record. Of course, no one saw it coming, although the Comet has been known to unexpectedly flare up (I believe the last time was in the late 1800’s) At one point its gaseous shell was greater in diameter than the Sun (over 800,000).
For these and other reasons, I think it’s important to pay attention to the symbolic nature of the “blue star’s” appearance – the Blue Star signals the beginning of a time of great purification – and observe what has taken place since this Universal symbol appeared as a naked eye object in out skies (beginning Nov 07 through Feb 08). The Hopi’s had it right. Hopefully, as a race, we’re smart enough to understand their message and work with this energy in a pro-active way rather than through fear.
So I apologize for my cavalier dismissal of the exploding comet, which was indeed quite a phenomenon. I do have one bone to pick with Bruce though – he mentions that the Hopi and the Maya have both declared the Comet Holmes to be the Blue Star Kachina but the only source for this claim is Drunvalo Melchizedek. For now I remain a bit skeptical about this connection.
