The Elements

.

The universe…everything…is made up of four or five elements or more, depending on which philosophical system you follow.  All plants, animals, stones, inanimate objects, emotions, forms of energy, and us, are a fusion of these elements.

 Classical Elemental Correspondences

The classical system of elements was developed by the eary Greeks and at first contained only four elements, spirit was later added over time.

The Chinese Five Elements

 

 

The Chinese believe that we are surrounded by five energy fields: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water…representations of different types of chi…life and creative energy.  They believe the elements are not static; that they are constantly moving and changing.  Once the five elements were identified, the Chinese began to categorize all phenomena within the five elements.  Rivers, mountains, trees, music, sounds, our bodies…physical, emotional, and spiritual, the forces of nature, ect. were all classified.

In traditional Chinese philosophy the five elements are known Wu Xing also translated as the five phases, five movements or five steps.  “Wu Xing” is actually the short form of “Wu zhong liu xing zhi chi” or “the five types of chi dominating at different times. These are the five basic forms of energy, constantly being transformed from one into another throughout the natural world. In people the elements determine our whole physical, psychological and emotional balance.  The five types of chi and their properties are:

Water runs downwards, liberal
Wood grows upwards, enduring
Fire spreads in all directions, radiant and hot
Metal pierce in one direction, sharp and pointing
Earth attracts and concentrates, stable

 

The doctrine of five phases describes two cycles of balance between the elements.  The first is a cycle of generation or creation, 生 shēng. The second cycle is one of overcoming or destruction, 克, .

Generating

  • Wood feeds fire;
  • Fire creates earth (ash);
  • Earth bears metal;
  • Metal collects water;
  • Water nourishes wood.

Overcoming

  • Wood parts earth;
  • Earth absorbs water;
  • Water quenches fire;
  • Fire melts metal;
  • Metal chops wood.

There are also two cycles of imbalance…the overacting cycle, cheng, and the insulting cycle, wu.

 The Hindu Elements…

The Chândogya Upanishad contains a desciption that is most likely the earliest Hindu viewpoint of the elements.

 

Element Tattwa Name Color Foods Color BodyAssociation
Fire agni red oil, butter, and fat red bone, marrow, and speech
Water ap white water white urine, blood, and prân.a (breath)
Air prithivi black other foods black flesh, mind, and feces

According to the Bhagavad-Gita and the Sankhya school of thought the three elements relate to the the three gunas, forces of nature…the causes of everything, and the order of the elements is changed.

Element Guna  (force of nature) Color Caste
Water sattva(goodness) – pure, elevating, enlightening white Brahmins—teachers, scholars and priests
Fire rajas(passion) – motivates us to create, acquire and enjoy red Kshatriyas—kings and warriors
Earth tamas(ignorance) – dirty, degrading, deluding, and destructive black or brown Vaishyas—traders, Shudras—agriculturists, service providers, and some artisan groups, and Parjanya or Antyaja(now called Dalits)— “untouchables”

 

 

The Hindus believe that God created the four elements with akasha, and and that the knowledge of all human experience is contained in the akashic records.

The roots of Tattvic philosophy go back to at least 2000 BC.  Tattva or tattwa(from tat, meaning “that” and tvam, meaning “thou”) means “thatness”…the real state of being of everything.  The five elements – Akasha, Vayu, Tejas, Apas, Prithivi – exist in ALL matter.

Each tattva contains within itself a combination of the other four and themselves, and therefore are fivefold in nature.  The sub-Tattvas are symbolized by placing a smaller Tattvic symbol within the larger main Tattvic symbol.  Therefore there are a total of 25 Tattvas: Spirit of Spirit, Air of Spirit, Fire of Spirit, Water of Spirit, Earth of Spirit; Air of Air, Fire of Air, Water of Air, Earth of Air, Spirit of Air; Fire of Fire, Water of Fire, Earth of Fire, Spirit of Fire, Air of Fire; Water of Water, Earth of Water, Spirit of Water, Air of Water, Fire of Water; & Earth of Earth, Spirit of Earth, Air of Earth, Fire of Earth, Water of Earth.

The Gogyo and Godai…Japanese Systems of  Five Elements

Everything in the universe is said to be a manifestation of these five elemental ‘building blocks’.  Nothing is solely composed of one element, but is a complex combination of all five.

“The Five Goings or Journeys” or “The Five Transformations“…The Gogyosystem uses the elements of water(sui), wood(mokyu), fire(ka), earth(do), and metal(kin) to represent the elements and how they interact in organic creation, as in our bodies.  These is the parts and pieces, examples…the outward appearances we use to categorize and identify objects.  These elements show the life and/or death cycle of all things.  This system was influenced by the Chinese elemental system.

The Five Great Elements”or The Five Manifestations“…The Godai system uses the elements of earth(chi), water(sui), fire(ka), wind(fu), void(ku) to represent how the “ten thousand things” come forth from the void.  The five elements are known as manifestations or appearances.  The elements are a system of cataloging all the individual parts or objects of that are part of the universe and created in the universe.  These elements are the life, breath, and pulse that gives something substance…makes it real.  It is used to understand creation throughout the universe of which all creation is a part of.  It is believed to understand the working of the godai will help a person achieve knowledge and enlightenment.  This system was imported from Tibet.

 

The five elements can been seen represented in Japanese architecture and art.  Each story of the five-story pagoda corresponds to one of five elements. The bottom story is square and corresponds to the earth. The second story is spherical and corresponds to water.  The third story is triangular and corresponds to fire.  The fourth story is a reclining half-moon shape and corresponds to wind.  The uppermost part of the structure is gem or teardrop shaped and corresponds with space.  Japanese lanterns also have a similar structure.

The “Great Elements” in Buddhism

    Mahābhūta is  Pali for the “Great Elements” used among  Buddhists as well as some Hindus, Jains and Sikhs.  The four Great Elements are earth, water, fire and air, and later a fifth, space, was added. In early Buddhism, the Four Elements were known the basis for understanding and for liberating oneself from suffering.  The Pali canon describes the Great Elements as both external and internal…of the body, such as bone and blood, and outside the body, as a river or tree.

There are also two other elements occasionally referred to in the Pali canon:

The Five Elements of Bön

Bön is the oldest spiritual tradition in Tibet.  The five elements  are the energies that all that happens, all that exists…our bodies, our emotions, and the physical world—are composed of.  Historians have discovered that Tibetan prayer flags also originate from the Bön culture.  The flags symbolize the balance and union of the elements.  Tibetan prayer flags come in sets of five, one corresponding to each color of one of the five elements.  The flags are arranged from right to left in the following sequence of colors:  blue, symbolizing space; white, symbolizing air; red, symbolizing fire; green, symbolizing water; and yellow, symbolizing earth.  Vertically placed the yellow flag goes at the bottom, the blue flag on top.

The Six Tastes are represented by a combination of the elements:

  • Sweet – earth and water
  • Sour – fire and earth
  • Salty – water and fire
  • Astringent/Pungent – wind and water
  • Bitter – wind and earth
  • Hot/Spicy – fire and wind

 

The Early Moon

In Babylon, the Moon god Sin was referred to as the Lord of Wisdom and He Who Would Open the Gate to Heaven. At first glance this is a valuable statement. How is heaven defined? Is it “a condition or place happiness?” Or is the term heaven, just a reference to the sky? Why does that wisdom apply to the Babylonian Moon? Could it be that an astrological view, wisdom and thus happiness, resulted from acquiring invaluable knowledge gained, not by following the Sun or planets, but primarily observing the Moon’s nocturnal position as it moved across the sky?

In Egypt the Moon was associated with an eye because of its association with the retina and its appearance to blink over a period of time, opening after the new Moon and closing after the full Moon. The Moon was known as Khons, the Eye of Horus, Osiris, Ptah and was sometimes associated with Min. The Egyptian Moon’s energy symbolized the goddess power and believed to be transmitted to only those on Earth who understood its magic. of supreme

The ancient Egyptian preceptors believed that there were two minds within the human being the solar and lunar. The solar mind represented the autonomic system regulating the heart and blood, intestines and glands that comprise the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. The lunar mind regulated the hypothalamic and cranial glands and functioned in terms of reflected light through the retina (Lawler).

Historically, the Chinese, Hindu, Arabic and Babylonian societies all relied heavily on the Moon for their predictive work and omina. Today, when Hindu or Chinese astrologers may ask about the time of birth, they are much more interested in the Moon’s position than any other planet. What is really amazing is that early literature about the Moon is very rare and nearly impossible to find even though the concept of the daily lunar mansion, the Moon’s motion was used extensively in ancient astrology.

With all this, there had to be more than just watching the Moon at night. Through the millennia the Babylonian/Chaldean culture and, to a small extent, the Egyptians continued to adjust their entire way of life to the whimsical lunar calendar. The Babylonians followed the Moon’s irregular course for over 40 centuries and yet the Moon remained their Lord of Wisdom. Why the so long? What magic and what wisdom does it have to offer? The lack of available information, either contemporary or ancient, is surprising because lunar progressions are a powerful predictive tool. Any astrologer who is unaware of the power of the Moon is missing a very important facet in his predictive work.

All the above ideas relate to the ancient belief that the Moon was the Earth’s offspring. For this reason the ever-changing Moon came to symbolize the child.

All the above ideas relate to the ancient belief that the Moon was the Earth’s offspring. For this reason the ever-changing Moon came to symbolize the child. If we look at the Moon’s location in the Egyptian cosmology chart, we notice the Moon is located near the “out of control” angle of the fourth house cusp. This position of the Moon symbolizes the idea of seeking guidance and/or being a guide.

Of course, the nature of the Moon is such that in order to be seen it needs the Sun’s light to do so. In this fashion we see the Moon’s position in the birth chart as that of an addiction in seeking nurture and protection to preserve its own nature. This is readily seen in the case of the performing arts. Its position in the chart indicates a basic need and inclination to please people, wanting to be liked and accepted by them. On the other hand, in both the birth and sunset charts, an afflicted Moon by association to harsher planets, such as Mars, Saturn and sometimes even the Sun or Jupiter, manifests as a marked propensity toward an antagonistic or even a shy attitude toward people. In either case we voluntarily give up some form of our sovereignty and go out of our way to please or displease others, because at the moment it seems the right thing to do.
Lunar Awareness

The degree of one’s sensitivity is registered by the Moon’s position by decanate. The Moon’s influence changes by virtue of its degree of longitude. The Moon located in the first ten-degree decanate indicates the development of understanding “emotional buttons.” The child learns early to assimilate knowledge concerning emotive reactions. In the second or “teen-degree” decanate, the decanate of change, the native feels that that his emotional needs may never be fulfilled, this Moon placement is its most risky position. The Moon in the second decanate is “constantly inconstant,” or desiring change for the sake of change. This restlessness is reflected in all parts of the lifestyle as a constant search for an ephemeral “something.” The native often avoids close personal relationships because he feels if someone really got to know him they may find that, emotionally, “no one is home.”

In the third decanate of goal seeking, the Moon higher than twenty-degrees reflects as “seeking guidance” to find answers to satisfy emotional objectives. Often an individual with a third decanate Moon placement will rarely reveal any weak position in a given situation. At times, when involved in conversation, the native may not be “up to par” on a given subject. And with this Moon placement he will probably wait to see if, further in the conversation, the speaker will reveal more information without the native having to ask for it. In this way, he feels that he is in control and maintains his idea of self-esteem. The Moon in this decanate usually reflects as the “perfect student” who synthesizes his mentor’s doctrine and infuses it with his own ideas. Later the student in return challenges his teacher’s original ideas intellectually. As with other planets, we should scrutinize the Moon’s arena very carefully.

The Moon is our main source of information through recognizing emotional responses. Review your own past circumstances or that of a client to indicate behavior patterns that may reveal future tendencies. Examine the first and last aspect the Moon makes. Later on this page, we will find that it is most importantto note the initial aspect the Moon makes by rogression and as well as all the Moon’s aspects throughout the rogression. Pay close attention to the Moon there will always be some lunar aspect in connection with events that are important to you.
The 24-Hour Lunar Arc

The numbers eighteen and twenty-eight have long been associated with the Moon. Additionally, during a Saros cycle of eighteen years and eleven days, there are no less than twenty-eight eclipses during that period somewhere on the planet. The daily motion of the Moon is found by observing the Moon’s motion measured by longitude from the beginning to the end of each 24-hour period.

It is very important to remember that the Moon travels about one degree of longitude every two hours, or approximately 12 degrees in 24 hours, this known as its rate of motion usually abbreviated as ROM. However, for a more accurate measurement, it is better to calculate the actual rate of motion of the Moon’s ROM than just using 12* as an average motion. This is accomplished by the usual procedure of deducting the Moon’s longitude from the previous day of birth using the exact time of day on both occasions. You will find the rate of motion by subtracting the longitude of the previous day from the longitude of the birthday. The distance the Moon travels by degree during that 24-hour period is called the lunar arc, its ROM or, in this work, the lunar mansion.
The Lunar Mansion

Today, there are three systems correlating to the twenty-eight lunar mansions. They are called Nakshastras in the Hindu/Vedic astrology system, Sieu in the Chinese system and Manzils (mansions) in the Arabic system. Each mansion begins with a fiduciary or reference star as its starting point. The reason the number 28 is assigned or fixed as lunar “stations” or mansions in contemporary analysis (not this work however), is derived by dividing the average ROM of 12° 51′ into 360. To list these fiducial points would be meaningless and would require too much space.

Additionally, and I think most importantly, the idea of positioning the lunar mansion as fixed points of reference reduces the Moon’s emotional influence into a static and boxed state without any personal consideration of the client. That is definitely something the Moon is not. The origin of fixed lunar mansions is probably derived from the term “Manzils,” the Arabic term for mansions by al Biruni, the tenth-century Arabian astrologer. The rate of daily lunar motion can vary from as little as 11° 36″ to as much as 15° 06″. One’s personal lunar mansion is described by the longitudinal motion the Moon travels during the complete 24-hour period of the day of birth. This format could be the probable Chaldean lunar mansion, which was not fixed, but measured by the Moon’s variable distance by its daily motion as it traveled through the zodiac between sunset to sunset.

In this work we, too, measure the lunar mansion by the variable daily motion and distance the Moon travels through the zodiac during the sunset to sunset period.

Astrologically, we can relate celestial mechanics with the Moon’s motion and the motion of the Sun. The Sun requires approximately two hours of real time to travel the distance of 30° in longitude or one house. The Moon also requires approximately two hours of real time to travel one degree of longitude. Based on the “aging” process known as “rogression.”, the Sun will move one house every six years and the Moon will generally advance but only by one degree or preferably, by its calculated hourly rate. The advancement by the Moon of one degree for each house the Sun travels is important to remember when the chart is rogressed.

The personal rate of motion of the lunar mansion describes the emotional demeanor of the person as noted in the chart by the first and last aspects the Moon makes. It is also a very important indicator of the person’s emotional journey because its placement clearly indicates life’s state of affairs.

The emotional “urge” is directed and best described as an inner recognition of the basic need that has been imprinted on the child during the formative years.This imprint is indicated by the Moon’s firstexact aspect to a planet or angle. Thecharacteristic manifestation is reflected by the Moon’s last exact aspect to a planet or angle. The last aspect made by the Moon indicates the individual’s attitude in acquiring the Moon’s first aspect’s basic need. Those with Jupiter as the first or last aspect just expect good things to happen, regardless of their situations. Those with Mercury feel that they can think or talk things through to resolution. Saturn, as the first or last aspect, promotes a reluctance to see things positively or the need to control them. With Mars, the native thinks with his fist or has a “might makes right” macho attitude.

Emotional “urges,” as seen by the lunar mansion, coupled with the lunar progressions, clearly dictates the direction of the native and the native’s changing circumstances. This is easy to follow because the Moon will continue to aspect the other planets as it advances one degree every six years. Very often, transitswill trigger a situation based only on the position of the rogressed Moon.

The lunar mansion then, is defined as the Moon’s first and last aspect to the planets or angles made during the 24 hours of the native’s birth. And those aspects indicate the emotional needs for fulfillment and quality of the native’s emotional life. During the life, other aspects made by the rogressed Moon represent the conditions and circumstances to which the native feels drawn.
Imprinting: First and Last Lunar Expression

Remember I mentioned that the Moon advances one degree every six years. While working with the lunar mansion, we are primarily interested in watching for two items.

 

(1) The house and the present lunar position by degree
(2) We want to find out in what time frame or how old the individual was when the Moon reached its first aspect to another planet by degree and the nature of the aspect. The age tells us the importance of imprinting as it happened to the native.
(3) What planet does the Moon last aspect by exact degree and its nature.

 

As a recap, the last planet the Moon aspects indicate how the native expects his hopes, wishes and dreams to manifest. The Sun, Venus or Jupiter represents more of a sense of ebullience than that of Mars or Saturn. The last aspect also indicates the overall emotional state and the inner sense regarding the conditions at the end of life and death. The Sun, Venus or Jupiter shows a willing or peaceful transition, Saturn or Neptune may indicate chronic illness, Uranus, Pluto or Mars a quick death.

Remember: The Moon’s first aspect identifies the most basic emotional urge for satisfying one’s self-expression and is designated by the planet and aspect by the Moon. Planets placed between the first and last aspects represent important changes in the lifestyle or crossroads experiences during the life. But alwayskeep in mind that the Moon’s first aspect is the native’s imprint, a deep-seated desire for emotional fulfillment. The nature of the planet and its type of aspect delineate this point. The last aspect represents the characteristic manifestationthe expected end result of his desires as signified by the planet and it’s aspect.

For example, say a client’s Moon makes its first aspect to Mercury. His emotional nature would be Mercurial and changeable with the need for self-expression, either verbally or in writing. Should Saturn be the last planet aspect made by the Moon, this would be toned down by intellectualism or perhaps even labored. With Jupiter as its last aspect there is more vitality and fervor.

To determine the individual’s emotional state when viewing the age of an incident by year, advance the sunset chart to the house that represents the age of the event. By counting the number of houses the Sun has rogressed by age, add the number of houses to the degree of longitude of the Moon, then look for any planet that has the same degree, either by rogression or transit. Note the planet’s enclitic influence as the Moon assimilates those energies as if it were its own process.

This can be likened to an earlier astrological custom of the translation and collection of light where the Moon picks up the energy pattern from the last planet it was in contact with and transfers that pattern of energy to the next planet it aspects. We call this function enclitic.

For example, should the Moon aspect Venus by conjunction and later sextile Jupiter, the now enclitic Moon will act as if it were Venus-oriented when it aspects Jupiter. This circumstance, taken alone, would describe someone either with an abundance of charm, a loving, charitable person or possibly someone with an artistic nature wishing to express it in a global way. If Venus the first and Jupiter was the last aspect respectively made by the Moon, with a harmonious Sun and/or planet placement(s), we would notice a distinctively warm and friendly individual. With a negative Sun or inharmonious planet placement, we might notice an inclination to laziness, conceit and perhaps negligence. In either case the individual would have “film star mannerisms” with a tendency to gain in popularity in spite of himself.

Origins of the Lunar Mansion

To begin, there are three Zodiacs. The Solar zodiac where the Sun travels in its apparent orbit through the tropical signs (and sidereal constellations). The Lunar zodiac where the Moon has a much wider path of 5.5 degrees above and below the Solar ecliptic (Latitude) giving a total of 10+ degrees in width. And a planetary zodiac where the planets travel, yet again, in a different path around the Sun, this is because the planets pass through many more signs than the Sun does seen from the viewpoint of Earth!

Sidereally, the Sun passes through 13 signs counting Ophiuchus. The Moon currently passes through 20 signs (constellations); however in Babylonian times, there were only 18 accounted for. The planetary zodiac is contained within 17 degrees North and South of the Sun’s ecliptic giving a wider band of 34 degrees over which the planets pass (counting Pluto).

The reason for the existence of these three zodiacs is simply that the Moon’s and the planets’ orbits appear a little tilted in comparison of each other due to the Earth’s 23+ degree axis compared to the Sun’s ecliptic.

As mathematical calculations were understood by less than .04 percent of the population, the ancients devised ways to substitute the degrees of longitude and latitude with associated names of either circumstances of the year or with attributes of animals. With this idea in mind, we can recognize this process becoming the animated Zodiac many centuries later by different cultures.

To wit, the word for Sun in Accadian was used in two different ways; one for astronomy and the second for astrological purposes. This process was the same for all the monthly and planetary names.

Thus, if we examine the associated, numberless monthly names for the Babylonian year plus the planet’s various names, we find a distinct association between Babylonian Epochal writings and poems with the planetary passages through the signs. As a matter of fact, we can find these same associations of astronomical reasons in the Siege of Troy or the wanderings of Ulysses in the Odyssey! In Fact many stories in legendary times correspond to a sign of the Zodiac and consequently to a month within a year which agrees to the character of each particular myth.

From this idea, we can conclude that the different names for the planets were used to associate a planet’s location with an asterism; a source of major confusion for archeologist in the past as there were many different names for the same planet found in Babylonian texts.

If we take that step up one rung of the ladder we can easily recognize how the Lunar Mansions may have begun. Calling the Moon’s position “resting places” would be the one concept that, considering the time that this concept arose, the Lunar Mansion idea would have been an easy way to simply identify the Moons position without any mathematical calculations. Much the same as the earlier Babylonians had done.

With this, we find considerable evidence that the Lunar Draconic system then developed into 28 “houses” with the associated monthly or animal nomenclature while the Solar Zodiac remained with only twelve.
At the time of the Babylonians, the lunar mansions didn’t exist as we know them today. The ancients assigned the lunar diurnal position using ‘star signposts’ during their nightly watch.
In this fashion, the Chaldeans gave us fixed star observations. The Mul.Apin tablets contain the most comprehensive surviving Babylonian star and constellation catalogue from before 600 BC.
The 33 stars on the path of Enlil
The 23 stars on the path of Ea
The 15 stars on the path of Anu

Egypt, on the other hand, developed some 300 years after the Babylonians and had a similar process, called “working stars,” possibly derived from the Babylonians. These ‘working stars’ were based on their Heliacal rising at10 day intervals.

The Chaldean lunar calendar considered the first quarter, full moon, last quarter and new Moon as evil days. The Egyptians carried this idea to an extreme by assigning their deities to a yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, hourly and even in some cases smaller segments of time we would consider as minutes today.

As Egyptian deities were considered favorable and unfavorable, there would be variable times when these deities would come into conflict thereby creating a inauspicious time to accomplish any endeavor considered worthwhile.

Enter the Chinese. Traditionally, their “Tzu Wei Tou Shu” system is supposed to date back four and a half millennia, to the reign of Emperor Huáng Dì. “Oracle bones” have survived from the Shang dynasty from about 1200-1045 BC. Some Astrological texts on predictions exist in the Chinese historical records ca. 206 BC – AD 220. The Chinese Zodiac simply related to the yearly sojourn of the Sun and not the monthly Solar zodiac found in the West. > Interestingly, the earliest reference to the Lunar mansions is with China dating back to 3117 BC ! This information comes to us VIA the Great Chinese wall thought to be a megalith similar to Stonehenge. The wall begins with the constellation of beta-Hydra, the Great Dragon, the 28th Xiu marking the Solstice of 3117 BC.

The Grecian occupation of both Persian and Egyptian soil eventually conflated all the different cultural “star programs” and converted both systems into a singular, noetic set of interrelated principles. The intellectual mental climate of Greece organized the different ‘star principles’ into a method of orderly interaction in connection with the seasonal changes.

Most likely, the Lunar mansions started much later than the Hellenistic period (323 BC to 146 BC) as there are no records indicating that the Lunar mansions, as we know them here in the West, were used before or during, that period.

The Babylonian Spring Equinox began with the Sun in Taurus. As such, the moon stations were adopted into India later, perhaps everywhere, from the Mesopotamian literature we find in the Mul Apin. The Mul.Apin lists the names of 66 stars and constellations and further gives a number of indications, such as rising, setting and culmination dates, that help to map out the basic structure of the Babylonian star map.

Scholars mostly agree that the Arabic “Al Manazil al Kamr” or ‘The resting place of the Moon’ is more than likely the origin of the Lunar mansions of today. The Lunar mansion beginning with Al Nath and Al Butain begin in Aries suggesting that The Lunar Mansions were developed at a much later date than Mesopotamian astronomy would indicate.•

Moon Mansions: The 28 Mansions of the Moon

“And in these twenty eight Mansions do lie hid many secrets of the wisdom of the antients, by the which they wrought wonders on all things which are under the circle of the Moon; and they attributed to every Mansion his resemblances, images, and seals, and his president intelligences, and worked by the virtue of them after different manners.” (“The MAGUS or CELESTIAL INTELLIGENCER” by Francis Barrett)

The ancient astrologers knew and used in their work aside from the 12 zodiacal signs of the Sun, also 28 mansions of the Moon or lunar mansions.

They represent an ancient wisdom, now very little spread among the astrologers, yet they are of great use both in natal and electional astrology as well as in magical purposes.

These mansions are subdivisions of the zodiac, equal in size, which start at 0º Aries and last 12º51´26´´ each.

The monthly transit of the Moon through each of these mansions generates a different influence as follows:

The 27 Nakshatras
The nakshatras are one of the oldest references we have to astrology from the Rig Veda, dating back about 5,000 years ago. The Vedas are the religious scriptures of the great seers and sages of India. The nakshatras are like the zodiacal signs but more specific. Their meanings are derived from the constellations, fixed stars and the mythology behind these portions in the sky. They are rich in meaning and have ruling deities that reveal the stories or myths that bring to life the symbology referred to in our own lives.The nakshatras are divisions of 13 degrees 20 minutes starting from zero Aries and ending at 30 degrees of Pisces, 13.20 divided into the 12 signs is 27. The nakshatras are referred to as the lunar mansions because the Moon moves approximately 13.20 per day, therefore, resides in one nakshatra per day. The personal planet in which the nakshatra resides will reveal deep information about the individual in relation to the meanings of the houses (area of life), and what houses the planet rules.

For example, the planet that rules the 7th house (indicating a person’s spouse), will reveal detailed information about the spouse by the description of that nakshatra. If Aries is the sign of the 7th house, then Mars, the ruler of Aries (the nakshatra where Mars resides) will describe the spouse. If Mars is in the nakshatra Magha, the spouse would have all the kingly qualities of Magha.

 

Ashwini “the horse woman” 0.00 to 13.20 Aries
Symbol horse’s head
Deity Ashwini Kumaras the horse headed twins who, as physicians to the gods, perform medical miracles
Stars El Sharatan, the horn of the Ram. Its qualities are violent, outspoken, and brazen
Mythology Sanjna is the name of the goddess who disguised herself as a horse and fled from her husband because he betrayed her. He caught up with her, and their offspring produced the Ashwini Kumaras, the horse-headed twins. Each day the twins bring the dawn as their chariot speeds through the sky
Indications The “star of transport,” they are pioneers, explorers, always ready to try something new. They have zeal, and a zest for life. Heroic and very courageous, some will want to join the armed forces. Their restless and impatient nature has them rushing off quickly without planning ahead. Speed, not efficiency, is their preference. Their speech may be quick and halting, possibly stuttering, for the words can’t match the speed of their thoughts. They are the true trailblazers, headstrong and stubborn. As the symbol for new beginnings, they can represent a baby who goes after what it wants, not considering the inconveniences to others. They can be childish, irresponsible and inconsiderate. Ashwini rules all forms of transportation and fast travel. They are probably known for getting speeding tickets. Healers performing miracle healings are one of Ashwini’s gifts.
Bharani “the bearer of new life” 13.20 to 26.40 Aries
Symbol yoni, the female organ for reproduction
Deity Yama, god of death, or Dharma
Stars A binary star in the left foot of Andromenda, Almach gives honor and artistic ability.Menkar, placed in the jaw of the whale indicates disgrace, trouble with legacies, and dishonor.

 

Mythology This part of the sky was called Apabharani, which means “the waters that carry things away”. This refers to all the souls that will transit here when they die. Yama is like Pluto and leads the dead to the other world. Yama was the first man sent to earth and the first man to die

Days of the Week

Monday’s child is fair of face.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
Wednesday’s child is full of woe.
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving.
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay
.

The seven day week is thought to have originated among the ancient Babylonians. The week was developed by dividing each lunar month into four sections of approximately seven days each.  Each day was then associated with a planet and god. Some historians believe associating the days of the week with the planets originated with the ancient Egyptians.  Christianity and Islam adopted the seven day week from Judaism. Both chose worship days, the day of rest, separate from the Jews…the Christians chose Sunday and the Muslims chose Friday…both days touched the original Sabbath day of Saturday.  Later the Greeks and Romans and other European and Asian countries adopted the seven day week system and named the days after the Sun and Moon, planets, and various gods.

Esoteric astrology

Esoteric astrology is based on Alice Bailey’s “Ageless Wisdom” teachings, which she said were relayed by her Tibetan Ascended Master, Djwhal Khul.[76][77] “The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, has provided a significant foundation for a more Soul-oriented approach to astrology and to the Life it seeks to symbolize and interpret.”[78]

Esoteric astrologers typically base their work on Bailey’s five-volume series, Treatise on the Seven Rays. The third book in the series, Esoteric Astrology,[79] is considered to be the foundation for esoteric astrologers world wide.”[80]

Esoteric astrology’s system of planetary rulerships differs from that of conventional astrology, involves planets not conventionally used, and replaces the house system with a system of crosses with highly individualized meanings and multiple levels of interpretation. Esoteric astrology incorporates elements of esotericism related to astrology and theory of Seven Rays.[81]

According to Bailey, the following are the houses and their planetary rulers:[82]

Personality (Mundane) Soul (Esoteric) House
Aries Mars Mercury First
Taurus Venus Vulcan Second
Gemini Mercury Venus Third
Cancer Moon Neptune Fourth
Leo Sun Sun Fifth
Virgo Mercury Moon Sixth
Libra Venus Uranus Seventh
Scorpio Mars Mars / Pluto Eighth
Sagittarius Jupiter Earth Ninth
Capricorn Saturn Saturn Tenth
Aquarius Uranus Jupiter Eleventh
Pisces Jupiter Pluto / Neptune Twelfth

The constitution of man[edit source | editbeta]

In line with previous Theosophical teachings,[83] Bailey taught that man consists of a soul of abstract mental material, working through a personality—a technical term for the physical, emotional, and less-abstract mental bodies considered holistically.[84][85] She uses traditional terms for these lower three “vehicles” or “sheaths”: physical body, astral body and mental body. There is also the etheric body which directly corresponds to the physical but is the vital energizing agent for the whole of a man in all his forms of expression. These auric aspects of the human being are defined as partial emanations or expressions of the soul, which is itself synonymous with the evolving human consciousness. The mind is not conceived to be simply an ephemeral brain effect, but as the motivating energy responsible for the inner constitution of individuals, and which also manifest as the aura.[86]

In Bailey’s writings, evolution is defined as the process of bringing the “lower nature” his physical, emotional, and mental selves into integration and alignment with the will of the soul—the “at-one-ment” of the personality.[87] It is this transformation that leads to “right human relations” and spiritual revelation or awakening. Discrete steps on the spiritual path are called initiations, which is to say that the evolving consciousness is entering into new and wider fields of awareness, relationships, responsibilities, and power.[88][89] In terms of her ray concept, the note of the soul is imposed (or superimposed) on the note of the personality.[84][90]

The Spiritual Hierarchy, Shamballa, Venus, and Sirius[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey wrote that behind all human evolution stands a brotherhood of enlightened souls who have guided and aided humanity throughout history.[91] For Bailey, the evolution of humanity was intimately bound up with its relationship to this Spiritual Hierarchy. She believed that the stimulating and uplifting influences of religions, philosophies, sciences, educational movements, and human culture in general are the result of this relationship,[92] and though in time humanity debases all these developments, they are all in their original impetus conceived as the result of the Spiritual Hierarchy working in concert with evolving human potentials.[93][94][95]

Bailey associated the spiritual hierarchy and its branches with the system of Sirius, the planet Venus, and the mythical land of Shambhala (which she spelled “Shamballa”), the residence ofSanat Kumara, “Lord of the World”. Bailey wrote, “The energy of Sirius by-passes (to use a modern word) Shamballa and is focused in the Hierarchy. […] The entire work of the Great White Lodge is controlled from Sirius….”[96] Monica Sjoo, in an essay about the New Age movement, explained her interpretation that “Bailey taught that the Hierarchy of Masters exists in Shambhala and that Venusians founded this fabled city some 18 million years ago on the sacred Gobi island, which is now in the Mongolian desert.”[97] It may be noted here that, in Bailey’s concept, “city” is figurative since she states that Shamballa is not physical in the common usage of that word but is rather located in “higher ethers.”[98]

Teachings regarding Maitreya[edit source | editbeta]

In the Alice A. Bailey material, she asserts that World War II was a cosmic conflict between good and evil. The Masters of the Ancient Wisdom, representing the Forces of Light, were on the side of the Allies; the Dark Forces were on the side of the Axis. According to Bailey, Adolf Hitler was possessed by the Dark Forces.[99] With the defeat of the axis by the allies in 1945, the stage was set for the appearance of the being traditional Theosophists call Maitreya, but whom Alice A. Bailey refers to simply as Christ, to inaugurate the New Age.

In January 1946, Bailey prophesied that since, according to her view, Christ (the name she used in her writings to refer to Maitreya) would return himself by manifesting a physical body of his own on the physical plane,[100] Bailey in her books wrote that this would be the New Age equivalent of the Christian concept of the Second Coming of Christ.[101]

She further stated that St. Germain (referred to as the Master Rakoczi or the Master R. in her books) is the manager of the executive council of Christ.[102] This executive council is a specific group of Ascended master charged with preparing the way for the Christ and the consequent inauguration of the Age of Aquarius. According to Bailey, when Christ returns, he will stay the entire approximately 2,150 year period of the Age of Aquarius, and thus the New Age equivalent of the Millennial Age will not be just a single millennium but will be the Aquarian bimillennium. During this era, said Bailey, Christ (Maitreya) will reign as the spiritual leader of Earth, the Messiah who will bring World Peace.[101]

In August 1946, DK through Bailey stated that Christ would return in an airplane, and thus fulfill the Christian prophesy of coming out of the clouds from “the place on Earth where He has been for many generations” and that after doing so, he would appear on worldwide television.[103]

The Great Invocation[edit source | editbeta]

The Great Invocation is a mantra given in 1937 to Bailey by Djwhal Khul. The mantra begins with “From the point of Light within the Mind of God, let light stream forth into the minds of men.” with the rest of the passage reinforcing this idea of men acting in accordance with the plan of God. It is well known by some followers of the New Age movement, where it is used as part of meditation, particularly in groups.[104]

The invocation has been used in the Findhorn Foundation community since the 1970s. In response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Great Invocation was used as a central element of a new daily program at Findhorn known as the “Network of Light meditations for peace”.[105] Findhorn’s use of the Great Invocation later spun off to various other groups they had influenced, including groups interested in new age UFO philosophies.[106][107]

Rosemary Keller described the Great Invocation as a call for “the Christ to return to Earth” and wrote that Bailey-related groups purchased radio and television time to broadcast the invocation as part of their mission, and that often the invocation was recited in what Keller called “light groups”, to accomplish what Bailey’s disciples considered to be attracting and focusing “spiritual energies to benefit the planet”.[11] Researcher Hannah Newman described what she found to be an antisemitic element in the Great Invocation. According to Newman, “the Plan” named in the invocation refers to the plan authored by “the Hierarchy”, that Newman states places “high priority on removing all Jewish presence and influence from human consciousness, a goal to be achieved by eliminating Judaism.”[6]

Discipleship and service[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey elaborated the relation of humanity to the Hierarchy in her teaching on Discipleship in the New Age. A disciple is an accepted student, or chela, in the spiritual ashram of a Master. In this scheme, all awakening souls stand in some relationship—for a long time unconsciously, but eventually in full conscious awareness—to some particular Master.[108][109] The integrated personality, coming under the influence of the soul, is simultaneously coming under the influence of this Master.[110] This relationship is determined by karma, by evolutionary status, and (most importantly) by the aspirant’s capacity for work to be done on behalf of humanity.[111] This service aspect is strongly emphasized throughout Bailey’s writings.[112] In her concept, the greatly increased (“stepped-up”) evolution of consciousness that results from this Master–pupil relationship is made possible only in and through service to humanity.

Bailey’s writing downplayed the traditional devotional and aspirational aspects of the spiritual life, in favor of serving “the Plan of the Hierarchy” by serving humanity.[113] According to her, this is primary, and everything hinges upon it.[114] For Bailey, discipleship means work—service—and the evolution of those sensitivities and powers that enhance that labor. Disciples will never gain such powers or awareness unless and until they will be used solely for unselfish service. (Bailey, p. 38)

Unity and divinity of nations and groups[edit source | editbeta]

Underlying Alice Bailey’s writing is the central concepts of unity and divinity.[115][116][117][118]

Although she often identified groups of people by their race, nationality, or religion, she said the key matter was not race or religion per se, but the evolution of consciousness that transcends these labels.[119] In her writings about the races, she focused on the humanitarian concept of unity and stated that the source of human problems is the spirit of separation that causes individuals and groups to set themselves apart from the rest of humanity. (Bailey, p. 375)

Ross describes Bailey’s teachings as emphasizing the “underlying unity of all forms of life”, and the “essential oneness of all religions, of all departments of science, and of all the philosophies.”[120] Campbell notes that the New Group of World Servers was established for “… promotion of international understanding, economic sharing, and religious unity.”[50]

On fanaticism and intolerance[edit source | editbeta]

Alice Bailey wrote strongly against all forms of fanaticism and intolerance.[121] She saw this fanaticism in churches, in nationalism, and in competing esoteric schools. (Bailey pp. 15 & 453)[122]She associated this fanaticism with unintelligent devotion and holding on to old ways and ancient theologies. Bailey indicated that these problems were found mostly in the older generations, that their fanaticism would limit their personal growth and that they would mostly find a solution for that limitation through devotion, and the forward movement of spiritual evolution.[123]

Racial theories[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey upheld theories of racial differentiation that posited a division of humanity into races that are on different levels in a “ladder of evolution”. These ‘races’ do not represent a national or physical type, but a state of evolution. For example, she states that the Aryan root race (or ‘5th race’), as an “emerging new race”, are the most recently evolved people on Earth, although the term ‘Aryan’ as used by her has a quite distinct meaning from the separative and racist use of the word. It refers not only to Caucasian peoples, but to origins in Indo-Persia, and indicates a culture where thought and intellect is dominant. In her book Education in the New Age, Bailey made predictions about the use of occult racial theories in the schools of the future, which she said would be based on the idea of ‘root races’ (originally vast prehistoric spans of time covering thousands of years when a particular human facet was being developed) such as Lemurians(physically adept), Atlanteans (emotionally adept), Aryans (mentally adept), and the New Race with “group qualities and consciousness and idealistic vision.”[124] However, she holds that the forthcoming ‘sixth sub-race’ (evolving from facets of current ‘fifth race’ intellectual culture) cannot reach its peak until the ‘sixth race’ proper (due many thousands of years hence), and may therefore not be the advance some of her New Age followers wish for. In her The Destiny of the Nations, Bailey described a process by which this “new race” will evolve, after which “low grade human bodies will disappear, causing a general shift in the racial types toward a higher standard.”[125]

Her writings were criticized by Victor Shnirelman, a cultural anthropologist and ethnographer, who in a survey of modern Neopaganism in Russia, drew particular attention to “… groups [that] take an extremely negative view of multi-culturalism, object to the ‘mixture’ of kinds, [and] support isolationism and the prohibition of immigration.” He noted that a number of Bailey’s books, as well as those of her contemporary Julius Evola, had been recently translated into Russian, and said that “… racist and antisemitic trends are explicit, for example, in the occult teachings of Alice Bailey and her followers, who wish to cleanse Christianity of its ‘Jewish inheritance’ and reject the ‘Jewish Bible’ as a prerequisite for entering the Age of Aquarius.”.[126]

Monica Sjöö, a Swedish-born British artist, writer, and supporter of the Goddess movement, wrote that Bailey, through her published teachings, had a “reactionary and racist influence on the whole New Age movement.”[127] She also noted what she called Bailey’s (and Theosophy’s) “pro-fascist religious views”, such as the belief in a secret elite of “Masters” who control world events and human minds through occult means and attempt to bring about the evolution of an Aryan super race (although this is an understandably modern misunderstanding of her teaching – ‘Aryan’ as used by Bailey is easily confused with the modern terminology, and the “Masters” are not an elite, but instead are ‘enlightened’ individuals originally introduced in theosophy as having evolved beyond the human or “4th kingdom” into the fifth or “Kingdom of souls”, and who – in her view – guide the human race as a whole).[128]

On the Negro race[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey stated that the Negro race contains a large number of “child souls”, leading lives of “physical activity motivated by the desire for satisfaction of some kind, and by a shallow “wish-life” or desire nature, and almost entirely oriented towards the physical life.”[129] She also wrote of the need for the white races to train the Negroes of Africa so that they will be fitted for true self-government.[130]

She described Negro people as “creative, artistic and capable of the highest mental development when taught and trained – as capable as is the white man;” and she emphasized the need for the white races to accord the Negro “the respect and the opportunity which is due him”, stating that “The future peace of the world depends today upon enlightened, farseeing statesmanship and an appreciation of the fact that God has made all men free.”[131]

She wrote that what she described as “the Negro Problem” is divided into two areas: “the problem of the future of the African Negro and the problem of the future of the Negro in the western hemisphere.”[132]

On “the Negro problem” in Africa[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey considered the indigenous people of Africa to be in the “embryonic stage” of evolutionary development, and wrote that, “Behind the many separative religious cults of that dark land, there emerges a fundamental and pure mysticism, ranging all the way from nature worship and a primitive animism to a deep occult knowledge and an esoteric understanding which may some day make Africa the seat of the purest form of occult teaching and living.”[132] She said that “Right human relations must be firmly established between the emerging Negro empire and the rest of the world; the new ideals and the new world trends must be fostered in the receptive Negro consciousness and in this way darkest Africa will become a radiant center of light, ready for self-government and expressing true freedom.”

On “the Negro problem” in the Americas[edit source | editbeta]

Regarding the relations between the Negro race and other races in the Western Hemisphere, Bailey wrote that it “constitutes a very ugly story, seriously implicates the white man and provides an outstanding disgrace”, and that “The white people face a grave responsibility and it lies in their hands to change conditions.”[133] She was a vocal advocate of humane treatment and equal rights for the Negro race, acknowledged that they had been subject to much cruelty and exploitation by the white race, but also said that good had come of this for Negroes and described reason for optimism regarding their future prospects.[132] She advocated improvement in the situation of the Negro in the United States, calling for the people of America to end discrimination, to accept the Negro population as brothers and friends and thereby bring about positive change.[133] She wrote that in the black peoples’ attempt to resolve their problem of separation in society, “the spiritual forces of the world are on the side of the Negro.”[134]

On the Jewish people[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey wrote much about the Jewish people, referring to them collectively as a race, with group karma, characteristics, and behaviors. Specifically, she was of the opinion that Jews embody the characteristics of “materialism, cruelty and a spiritual conservatism” and the “separative, selfish, lower concrete mind.”[135][136]

On the social characteristics of the Jews[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey described Jews as “the most reactionary and conservative race in the world”, explaining this as a result of their need to preserve their cultural identity as a wandering people under persecution. She wrote that, “People complain (and it is frequently true) the Jews lower the atmosphere of any district in which they reside. They hang their bedding and their clothing out of the windows. They live on the streets, sitting in groups on the sidewalks.”[16]

She wrote that Jews “take what they want, to see to it that their children get the best of everything available, no matter what the cost to others”; they “blame the non-Jewish nations for their miseries”; and, “The Jew needs to recognize his share in bringing about the dislike which hounds him everywhere.”[137]

She stated that even though the Jews are “possessed of great wealth and influence”, they create “dissension among the nations” and “almost abusive, demands for the Gentile to shoulder the entire blame and end the difficulty.”[137]

On “the Jewish problem”[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey said that what she called the “Jewish problem”[138][139] was the result of negative karma accumulated by the Jews due to “acts and deeds there claimed by him as his racial acts and deeds (conquest, terrorism and cruelty)…” and wrote that the solution to this “problem” will come “…when the races regard the Jewish problem as a humanitarian problem but also when the Jew does his share of understanding, love and right action. This he [the Jew] does not yet do, speaking racially.”[135]

Before World War II, she wrote: “The major racial problem has, for many centuries, been the Jewish, which has been brought to a critical point by Germany…”;[140] that the Jews “constitute an international minority of great aggressiveness, exceedingly vocal”;[141] and that while they are an ancient, civilized and cultured people, their problems as a “struggling minority” are the result of “certain inherent characteristics”, and the “untidy effect they have on any community”.[142]

In 1939, as World War II began, Bailey wrote that “the Jewish problem, is definitely producing cleavage as a part of the divine plan… to bring humanity to certain realizations and decisions.”[143]

In 1948, after the war and the Holocaust, she wrote that “there are eighty percent of other people in the concentration camps, only twenty percent Jews”, and that Jews have not only repudiated the Messiah, but they have forgotten their unique relation to humanity.[125][144]

Bailey wrote critically about hatred of the Jews and predicted a future in which Jews would “fuse and blend with the rest of mankind.”[145] In her autobiography, she stated that she had been on Hitler’s “blacklist”, and she believed this had been because of her defense of the Jews during her lectures throughout Europe.[146] She criticized the cruelty of “the Gentile” (non-Jewish people) for their treatment of the Jews, stating “great is his responsibility for wrong doing and cruel action.”[147]

Bailey further stated that the Jews were themselves responsible for the bad treatment they received, “Changed inner attitudes are needed on both sides, but very largely on the side of the Jews.” She was aware of and accepted the controversial nature of her comments in this regard.[137]

On interracial marriage[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey wrote regarding interracial marriage that “the best and soundest thinkers in both the white and black races at this time deplore mixed marriages. They mean no happiness for either party.” She advised against intermarriage between Caucasians and Asians but said that children of interracial unions would be unavoidable following World War II due to the actions of what she called the “inevitable promiscuity” of the armies. She wrote that “children of mixed race, as well as the half-castes and the Eurasians may be the answer to a large part of the problem. There will be hundreds of thousands of these children of mixed parentage, forming part of the world population in the next generation and immediate cycle and they are a group with which we will have to reckon.”[148]

While she believed that intermarriage would not solve what she called “the Negro problem”,[149] she implied this might change and on this issue, “I make no prophecy about the future.”[150]

Her comments on the topic of interracial marriage are conflicting: On the one hand she suggested that mixed marriages have unhappy effects, on the other hand she seemed to view them as positive and contributing to the solution of racial tensions.[151] Elsewhere she wrote that marriages are rooted in soul relationships,[152] and that intermarriage in general is not a solution to racial problems but that the solution lies in appreciation of the good qualities found in groups other than one’s own.[153] Her contrary statements thus reflect the mixed and emerging views of the time in which she was writing.

On nationalism and nations[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey criticized national groups, based on what she believed were their violations of the spirit of unity and brotherhood. She believed that an individual’s primary allegiance is to humanity and not to any subgroup within it: “I call you to no organizational loyalties, but only to love your fellowmen, be they German, American, Jewish, British, French, Negro or Asiatic.”[154]

On the United States and France[edit source | editbeta]

While praising the United States and France in some respects, Bailey saw in them political corruption.[155][156] She regarded the talk about a free press as largely an illusory ideal and stated, “… particularly is it absent in the United States, where parties and publishers dictate newspaper policies.”[157]

On Israel, Zionism, and the U.S.S.R.[edit source | editbeta]

Regarding the foundation of the modern nation of Israel after World War II, Bailey said that “The Jews, by their illegal and terrorist activities, have laid a foundation of great difficulty for those who are seeking to promote world peace.”[158]

Bailey criticized Zionism, comparing it with the Stalinist regime: “Zionism today stands for aggression and for the use of force, and the keynote is permission to take what you want irrespective of other people or of their inalienable rights. These points of view are against the position of the spiritual leaders of humanity, and therefore the leaders of the Zionist movement, and the group of men who direct and control the policies of Russia, are against the policies of the spiritual Hierarchy and are contrary to the lasting good of mankind. … The menace to world freedom today lies in the known policies of the rulers of the U.S.S.R. and in the devious and lying machinations of the Zionists.”[159]

On the “present world crisis”[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey said, “We could take the nations, one by one, and observe how this nationalistic, separative or isolationist spirit, emerging out of an historical past, out of racial complexes, out of territorial position, out of revolt and out of possession of material resources, has brought about the present world crisis and cleavage and this global clash of interests and ideals.”[160] In 1947, in listing the causes of world conflict, she cited the fight for oil, and the fight over Palestine, “[…] a fight which has greed and not any love of Palestine behind it, and which is governed by financial interests and not by the humanitarian spirit which the Zionists claim […]”.[161]

On organized religions[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey taught a form of universal spirituality that transcended denominational identification, believing that, “Every class of human beings is a group of brothers. Catholics, Jews, Gentiles, occidentals and orientals are all the sons of God.” She stated that all religions originate from the same spiritual source, and that humanity will eventually come to realize this, and as they do so, the result will be the emergence of a universal world religion and a “new world order.”[162][163] Bailey described a world where there would be no separate religions but rather “one great body of believers.” She predicted that these believers would accept unified truths based on brotherhood and “divine sonship”, and would “cooperate with the divine Plan, revealed to them by the spiritual leaders of the race.” She wrote that this was not a distant dream but a change that was actually occurring during the time of her writing. (Bailey, p 140)

Despite her focus on unity of religion, Bromley and Hammond point out that Bailey and other “occultists” “…hammered home the central idea, ‘The East is the true home of spiritual knowledge and occult wisdom.'”[164]

Author Steven Sutcliffe wrote that Bailey’s “World Goodwill” organization was promoting groups of “world servers” to, as he quotes Bailey, “serve the Plan, Humanity, the Hierarchy and the Christ.”[165]

On Judaism[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey was highly critical of Judaism. She wrote: “The word ‘love’ as it concerns relation to other people is lacking in their religious presentation, though love of Jehovah is taught with due threats; the concept of a future life, dependent upon conduct and behavior to others and on right action in the world of men, is almost entirely lacking in The Old Testament and teaching on immortality is nowhere emphasized; salvation is apparently dependent upon the keeping of numerous physical laws and rules related to physical cleanliness; they go so far as to establish retail shops where these rules are kept – in a modern world where scientific methods are applied to purity in food. All these and other factors of less importance set the Jew apart, and these he enforces no matter how obsolete they are or inconvenient to others.”[166]

Because of writings like these, the American Chassidic author Rabbi Yonassan Gershom wrote that Bailey’s plan for a New World Order and her call for “the gradual dissolution—again if in any way possible—of the Orthodox Jewish faith” revealed that “her goal is nothing less than the destruction of Judaism itself.” Gershom also wrote that “This stereotyped portrayal of Jews is followed by a hackneyed diatribe against the Biblical Hebrews, based upon the “angry Jehovah” theology of nineteenth-century Protestantism. Jews do not, and never have, worshipped an angry vengeful god, and we Jews never, ever call God “Jehovah.”[167]

On Christianity[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey wrote of “the return of the Christ”, but her concept had little in common with that of mainstream Christian churches. Bailey almost always used the phrase “the Christ” when not referring specifically to the Christian idea. For her, the leadership of the Hierarchy is an “office” (so to speak), to be occupied by Masters in the course of Their unfolding evolution. She saw the Christ as a great “Person”, embodying the energy of love, and His return as the awakening of that energy in human consciousness.[168] She also introduced the ideas that the new Christ might be “of no particular faith at all”, that he may be from any nation, race, or religion, and wrote that his purpose of returning will be to “restore man’s faith in the Father’s love” in a close personal relationship with “all men everywhere”.[169]

She stated that no one particular group can claim Him—that the New Age Christ belongs to whole world, and not to Christians alone, or to any nation or group. (Bailey, p 109) Bailey was highly critical of mainstream Christianity; she wrote that much of the Church’s teaching about Christ’s return is directly opposed to His own intentions and that “The history of the Christian nations and of the Christian church has been one of an aggressive militancy” (Bailey, p 110)

Influence[edit source | editbeta]

Alice Bailey’s influence can be seen on the groups she founded, on a variety of religious and spiritual authors, and on groups that have utilized her writings in their own teachings.

Groups founded by Bailey or her followers[edit source | editbeta]

The Arcane School, founded by Alice and Foster Bailey to disseminate spiritual teachings, organizes a worldwide “Triangles” program to bring people together in groups of three, for daily meditation and study. Their belief is that they receive divine energy through meditation; this energy is transmitted to humanity, so raising spiritual awareness.[170] John Michael Greer’s New Encyclopedia of the Occult states that the school “seeks to develop a New Group of World Servers to accomplish the work of the Hierarchy of Masters, under the guidance of its head, the Christ.”[171]

Influence on the New Age Movement[edit source | editbeta]

Bailey made extensive use of the term “New Age” in her books and some writers have described her as the founder of the New Age movement.[4][126][172] However The New Age was used as the title of a Journal of Christian liberalism and Socialism, published as early as 1894, predating Bailey’s use of the term.[173][174]

James R. Lewis and J. Gordon Melton, in Perspectives on the New Age wrote, “The most important—though certainly not the only—source of this transformative metaphor, as well as the term “New Age”, was Theosophy, particularly as the Theosophical perspective was mediated to the movement by the works of Alice Bailey.”[175]

Sir John Sinclair, in his book The Alice Bailey Inheritance, commented on the seminal influence of Alice Bailey, which, he said, underlies the consciousness growth movement in the 20th century.[176]

Influence on neopaganism[edit source | editbeta]

Several writers have mentioned the affinity of some of Bailey’s concepts with modern expressions of paganism.[177][178]

During the 1960s and 1970s, the neopagan author and ceremonial magic ritualist Caroll Poke Runyon published a magazine called The Seventh Ray, its name taken from the writings of Alice Bailey. In the 1990s, two volumes of collected articles from the magazine were published as The Seventh Ray Book I, The Blue Ray and The Seventh Ray Book II, the Red Ray.

Influence on women in religion[edit source | editbeta]

Author Catherine Wessinger wrote that Bailey was a liberated woman “… sixty years before it became popular”; that Bailey’s books expressed a similar “millennial view” to the works of Annie Besant; and that they were “an important source of the contemporary New Age movement.”[179]

According to the Encyclopedia of Women And Religion in North America, several leaders of New Age philosophy have further developed Bailey’s teachings, including the well-known personalitiesJZ Knight (who channels the entity known by the name Ramtha), Helen Schucman (author of A Course in Miracles through the process of telepathic dictation she called “scribing”),and Elizabeth Clare Prophet (who published what she referred to as “dictations from Ascended Masters”).

The “Tibetan” teacher, Djwhal Khul, whom Bailey claimed was the co-author of many of her books, has also been claimed as co-author by two new female channelers, Violet Starre and Moriah Marston. Starre claims to have channeled Bailey’s old teacher twice: the title of her first book, Diamond Light, Cosmic Psychology of Being, 4th Dimension, 7 Rays & More, owes an obvious debt to Bailey’s writings, and is sometimes listed in book catalogues under the full title “Diamond Light, Cosmic Psychology of Being, 4th Dimension, 7 Rays & More (Teachings Similar to Those Given to Alice A. Bailey) by Djwhal (channeled Through Violet Starre) Khul.”.[180] The same influence can also be seen in Starre’s The Amethyst Light: Djwhal Khul Through Violet Starre, published in 2004. Marston’s Soul Searching with Djwahl Khul, the Tibetan, was published in 2006, and according to her publisher, Airleaf Books, “She has been a conscious channel for Ascended Master Djwhal Khul since 1986.”

Influence on psychotherapy and healing[edit source | editbeta]

In 1930, with the patronage of English-Dutch spiritualist, theosophist and scholar Olga Froebe-Kapteyn, Bailey established the short-lived “School of Spiritual Research” located on Froebe-Kapteyn’s estate, Casa Gabriella, in Switzerland. (In 1932 the school was closed due to personal conflict between Bailey and Froebe-Kapteyn, at which time Froebe-Kapteyn replaced it with theEranos group.) Roberto Assagioli, founder of Psychosynthesis, was a lecturer at School of Spiritual Research.[181] He continued a close association with Bailey during the 1930s; some of his writings were published in Bailey’s magazine The Beacon; and he was a trustee of Bailey’s organization, the Lucis Trust.[182] He had developed his approach to psychology, called Psychosynthesis, beginning in 1910; his methods were later influenced by some elements of Bailey’s work.[183][184][185][186][187] However, authors John Firman and Ann Gila write that Assagioli kept what he referred to as a “wall of silence” between the areas of psychosynthesis and religion or metaphysics, insisting that they not be confused with each other.[188]

Roger J. Woolger said, in a paper presented to the “Beyond the Brain” Conference held at Cambridge University in 1999, “In Tansley as in Brennan you will find descriptions of a hierarchy of subtle bodies called the etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual that surround the physical body. (Interestingly Tansley attributed the source of his model to Alice Bailey’s theosophical commentary on The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the locus classicus of Hindu teaching.)”[189]

Bailey’s influence can be found in therapeutic communities with which she was never directly involved, such as the Human Potential Movement.[11]

Influence on UFO groups[edit source | editbeta]

Christopher Partridge wrote that the works of Bailey, Rudolf Steiner, and Theosophy in general all influenced what he called the “UFO religions“.[190] He explained that “…Theosophy has several prominent branches, and, strictly speaking, the branch which has had the most important influence on the UFO religion is that developed by Alice Bailey.”.[191] Partridge also quoted Gordon Melton, who suggested that the first UFO religion was Guy Ballard‘s “I Am” Activity,[190] which Bailey described as a “cheap comedy.”[192]

Professor Robert S. Ellwood of the University of Southern California investigated a wide range of religious and spiritual groups in the United States during the 1970s, including a nationwide group of UFO believers called Understanding, Inc., which had been founded by a contactee named Daniel Fry. He reported that, “There is no particular religious practice connected with the meeting, although interestingly the New Age Prayer derived from the Alice Bailey writings is used as an invocation.”[193]

George D. Chryssides of the University of Wolverhampton, cited Bailey’s influence on the ideas of the Order of the Solar Temple and related UFO organisations.[194]

Benjamin Creme, formerly a member of the UFO religion the Aetherius Society, became a follower of Alice A. Bailey and then proclaimed in 1975 that he had been contacted by Maitreya to prepare for the return of Maitreya to Earth that had been prophesied by Alice A. Bailey in 1946. Alice A. Bailey prophesied in January 1946 that (since Jiddu Krishnamurti had repudiated the“World Teacher Project”Christ (in her books she refers to Maitreya as The Christ or The World Teacher, not as Maitreya) would return himself by manifesting a physical body of his own on thephysical plane “sometime after AD 2025”[195] and that this would be the New Age equivalent of the Christian concept of the Second Coming of Christ[196] (See Maitreya (Benjamin Creme)).

Esoteric astrology[edit source | editbeta]

Whereas most astrology focuses on the personality, the esoteric astrology of Alice Bailey seeks to explain the soul and its desire for spiritual evolution.[197][198] Esoteric astrology is grounded in Bailey’s (Djwhal’s) Ageless Wisdom teachings.[199][200] According to one writer, “The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, has provided a significant foundation for a more Soul-oriented approach to astrology and to the Life it seeks to symbolize and interpret.”[78]

The esoteric astrologers who follow the teachings of Bailey typically base their work on her five-volume Treatise on the Seven Rays, particularly volume three which focuses on astrology.[80]

In esoteric astrology the seven rays are applied to the astrological signs and planets, with a corresponding “soul urge”, in the following manner (taken from Oken[80]).

Soul Urge: “The use of spiritual will for the benefit of the collective; power utilized for the purpose of enhancing unity and beauty; the expression of will for the purposes and being of the group.” (p. 105)

Soul Urge: “The urge to bring about a sustaining, loving wholeness to any group or life situation; the ability, through magnetic attraction, to bring about healing; the focus for the stimulation of consciousness, and hence for greater love/wisdom; the ability to see beyond differences into unifying principles.” (p. 110)

Soul Urge: “The birthing of ideas to benefit humanity; the structuring of time and activities to allow for group energies to flourish; inherent, objective intelligence ready to be used in service to humanity in all ways.” (p. 114)

Soul Urge: “The ‘Divine Artist’ – one who seeks to raise humanity’s consciousness through the realization of the beauty and harmony existing in nature and in the world of forms; the mediator between heaven and earth, God and man; the Priest.” (p. 122)

Soul Urge: “Those who work to be connecting links of intelligence between the abstract world of pure ideation and the concrete world of practical application; precision and exactitude in creating those forms and inventions which allow for the outpouring of Higher-Mind Intelligence.” (p. 127)

Soul Urge: “The urge to transform selfish and personal motivation into selfless, impersonal devotion for the good of all; the bringing about of circumstances which reorient the exclusive to the inclusive for the greater expression of Love/Wisdom.” (p. 133)

Soul Urge: “The urge to gather, formulate, and harmonize various aspects of a given set of life circumstances into an ordered expression for the Will of God; the urge to make ‘heaven on earth.'” (p. 139)

The planetary and house rulers differ in esoteric astrology as compared to exoteric astrology. The esoteric planetary and house rulers are to be used when a person is analyzing the soul’s purpose or journey through life. According to Djwhal Khul (Alice Bailey), here are the rulers.[82]

Personality (Mundane) Soul (Esoteric) House
Aries Mars Mercury First
Taurus Venus Vulcan Second
Gemini Mercury Venus Third
Cancer Moon Neptune Fourth
Leo Sun Sun Fifth
Virgo Mercury Moon Sixth
Libra Venus Uranus Seventh
Scorpio Mars Mars / Pluto Eighth
Sagittarius Jupiter Earth Ninth
Capricorn Saturn Saturn Tenth
Aquarius Uranus Jupiter Eleventh
Pisces Jupiter Pluto / Neptune Twelfth

Alice Bailey wrote in Esoteric Astrology, “The human being in his eventual recognized group relationships is of more importance than appears in his individual life, which the orthodox horoscope seeks to elucidate. It only determines his little destiny and unimportant fate. Esoteric astrology indicates his group usefulness and the scope of his potential consciousness.”

Esoteric Healing[edit source | editbeta]

Esoteric healing is a major subject in the philosophical writings of Alice Bailey. It is contained in the fourth volume of “The Treatise on the Seven Rays”.[201] The primary emphasis of esoteric healing is not on the physical body or any of the three personality bodies of the human being (physical, emotional, mental), but on the soul. It is the soul that heals. This is stated in the “Law One of Esoteric Healing”: “All disease is the result of inhibited soul life. This is true of all forms in all kingdoms. The art of the healer consists in releasing the soul so that its life can flow through the aggregate of organisms which constitute any particular form.” The primary healing ray is ray two. More advanced esoteric healing allows the practitioner to work with their own soul ray and the soul ray of the patient. Volume IV (Esoteric Healing) was first published in 1953. It took until the 1970s for a group to adequately assimilate the teachings and begin to put it into practice. Brenda Johnston founded the International Health Research Network in 1971. In 1984 the group became a registered charity in UK, with its name changed to the International Network of Esoteric Healing (INEH). The international group remains small but it has spread to about 20 countries with training of students by trained teachers of esoteric healing, esoteric healing clinics, national and international conferences annually. They also have a biannual Journal. Although INEH requires membership of its organization, esoteric healing remains open to anyone wishing to practice the art.

Zodiac flower signs are based on the astrological zodiac signs. These are provided here as another method of self-discovery. Flowers offer us a blossoming perspective into our personalities. When we see ourselves as ever expanding and growing flowers, we know that we are infused with infinite potential. Associating our personality with our zodiac flower signs also allows us to accept various phases in our lives. Even though our personalities can be trying at times, our flower signs remind us that every season has its peaks and valleys. Our flower signs are born, grow, and wither only to re-germinate and start the business of growth and expansion once again. As you read through your zodiac flower sign, remember these cycles. Remember that just like the flowers of the field we all grow at our own pace. We cannot force the flower to blossom, and so we must accept our own soul-growth at its own pace too. Also, when we are first learning about astrology and the signs of the zodiac, it sometimes help to assign the traditional signs with corresponding symbols like these flowers. For example, some people will remember Below I have provided zodiac flower signs according to date of birth. I also give a catch phrase that your flower sign might use as a motto. A brief personality summary follows each sign. Keep in mind, this is just a reference. Your zodiac flower sign personality may differ according to the conditions of your soil, water, sunlight, and weather conditions. 🙂 Oh, and if you love flowers, don’t miss my pages on Flower Meanings (general), and Flower Color Meanings. Celtic tree astrology is based on the ancient idea that the time of our births is pivotal to the formation of our personality and behavior.

The spiritually savvy Celts, particularly the druids were expert observers. Over time, they recognized that a child born within a certain season would develop certain qualities. Further, the druids observed patterns in the color and shape of a person’s life according to the motions of the moon (their calendar being based on a lunar year) and the season in which we are born. The system of Celtic tree astrology was developed out of a natural connection with the druid’s knowledge of earth cycles and their reverence for the sacred knowledge held by trees. As mentioned on my Celtic Meaning of Trees Page, the druids had a profound connection with trees and believed they were vessels of infinite wisdom. Carrying this concept a step forward, we can associate the likeness and personality of trees to our own human nature. By doing so, we gather inspired insight and clarity into who we are. Below I have provided my interpretation of the Celtic tree astrology signs. I hope you enjoy these perspectives as much as I did while writing them. Oh, and don’t miss my page on Celtic Animal Zodiac Signs here. Click on the pictures or links for each sign to learn more about the tree within the Celtic Ogham context

. Elder – The Seeker
November 25 – December 23

Elder archetypes among Celtic tree astrology tend to be freedom-loving, and sometimes appear to be a bit wild to the other signs of the zodiac. In younger years you may have lived life in the fast lane, often identified as a “thrill seeker.” At the time of your birth the light of the sun was fast fleeting and so you take the same cue from nature. You are often misjudged as an outsider as you have a tendency to be withdrawn in spite of your extroverted nature. In actuality, you are deeply thoughtful with philosophical bent. You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful. These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly (which you openly share solicited or otherwise). Elder Celtic tree astrology signs fit well with Alder’s and Holly’s

.
Birch – The Achiever
December 24 – January 20

If you were born under the energy of the Birch you can be highly driven, and often motivate others they become easily caught in your zeal, drive and ambition. You are always reaching for more, seeking better horizons and obtaining higher aspirations. The Druids attributed this to your time of birth, which is a time of year shrouded by darkness, so consequently you are always stretching out to find the light. Birch signs (just like the tree) are tolerant, tough, and resilient. You are cool-headed and are natural-born rulers, often taking command when a situation calls for leadership. When in touch with your softer side, you also bring beauty in otherwise barren spaces, brightening up a room with you guile, and charming crowds with you quick wit. Celtic tree astrology Birch signs are compatible with Vine signs and Willow signs.
.
Rowan – The Thinker
January 21 – February 17

Celtic tree astrology recognizes Rowan signs as the philosophical minds within the zodiac. If you were born under the Rowan energy, you are likely a keen-minded visionary, with high ideals. Your thoughts are original and creative, so much so, that other’s often misunderstand from where you are coming. This sometimes makes you aloof when interacting with others as you feel they wouldn’t understand where you are coming from anyway. Nevertheless, although you may appear to have a cool exterior, you are burning within from your passionate ideals. This inner passion provides inner motivation for you as you make your way through life. You have a natural ability to transform situations and people around you by your mere presence. You are highly influential in a quiet way and others look to you for your unique perspectives. Rowan pairs well with Ivy and Hawthorn signs.
.
Ash – The Enchanter
February 18 – March 17

Those born under the Celtic tree astrology sign of the Ash are free thinkers. Imaginative, intuitive, and naturally artistic, you see the world in water-color purity. You have a tendency to moody and withdrawn at times, but that’s only because your inner landscape is in constant motion. You are in touch with your muse, and you are easily inspired by nature. Likewise, you inspire all that you associate with and people seek you out for your enchanting personality. Art, writing (especially poetry), science, and theology (spiritual matters) are areas that strongly interest you. Others may think you are reclusive, but in all honesty, you are simply immersed in your own world of fantastic vision and design. You are in a constant state of self-renewal and you rarely place a value on what others think about you. Ash signs partner well with Willow and Reed signs.
.
Alder – The Trailblazer
March 18 – April 14
If you are an Alder sign within the Celtic tree astrology system, you are a natural-born pathfinder. You’re a mover and a shaker, and will blaze a trail with fiery passion often gaining loyal followers to your cause. You are charming, gregarious and mingle easily with a broad mix of personalities. In other words, Alder signs get along with everybody and everybody loves to hang around with you. This might be because Alder’s are easily confident and have a strong self-faith. This self-assurances is infectious and other people recognize this quality in you instantly. Alder Celtic tree astrology signs are very focused and dislike waste. Consequently, they can see through superficialities and will not tolerate fluff. Alder people place high value on their time, and feel that wasting time is insufferable. They are motivated by action and results. Alder’s pair well with Hawthorns, Oaks or even Birch signs.
.
Willow – The Observer
April 15 – May 12
If you are a Willow sign, you are ruled by the moon, and so your personality holds hands with many of the mystical aspects of the lunar realm. This means you are highly creative, intuitive (highly psychic people are born under the sign of the Willow) and intelligent. You have a keen understanding of cycles, and you inherently know that every situation has a season. This gives you a realistic perspective of things, and also causes you to be more patient than most tree signs. With your intelligence comes a natural ability to retain knowledge and you often impress your company with the ability to expound on subjects from memory. Willow Celtic tree astrology signs are bursting with potential, but have a tendency to hold themselves back for fear of appearing flamboyant or overindulgent. It is your powers of perception that ultimately allow your true nature to shine, and what leads you to success in life. Willow signs join well with the Birch and the Ivy.
.
Hawthorn – The Illusionist
May 13 – June 9
Hawthorn signs in Celtic tree astrology are not at all what they appear to be. Outwardly, they appear to be a certain persona, while on the inside Hawthorn’s are quite different. They put the term “never judge a book by its cover” to the test. They live seemingly average lives while on the inside they carry fiery passions and inexhaustible creative flame. They are well adjusted and can adapt to most life situations well – making themselves content and comforting others at the same time. You are naturally curious, and have an interest in a broad range of topics. You are an excellent listener, and people seek you out as an outlet to release their burdens. You have a healthy sense of humor, and have a clear understanding of irony. You tend to see the big picture, and have amazing insight – although you typically won’t give yourself enough credit for your observations. Hawthorn signs match up nicely with Ash and Rowan’s.
.
<> <>Oak – The Stabilizer
June 10 – July 7
Those born under the Celtic tree astrology sign of the Oak have a special gift of strength. They are protective people and often become a champion for those who do not have a voice. In other words, the Oak is the crusader and the spokesperson for the underdog. Nurturing, generous and helpful, you are a gentle giant among the Celtic zodiac signs. You exude an easy confidence and naturally assume everything will work out to a positive outcome. You have a deep respect for history and ancestry, and many people with this sign become teachers. You love to impart your knowledge of the past to others. Oak signs have a need for structure, and will often go to great lengths to gain the feeling of control in their lives. Healthy Oak signs live long, full, happy lives and enjoy large family settings and are likely to be involved with large social/community networks. Oak signs pair off well with the Ash and Reed, and are known to harmoniously join with Ivy signs too.
.
<> <>Holly – The Ruler
July 8 – August 4
Among the Celtic tree astrology signs the Holly is one of regal status. Noble, and high-minded, those born during the Holly era easily take on positions of leadership and power. If you are a Holly sign you take on challenges easily, and you overcome obstacles with rare skill and tact. When you encounter setbacks, you simply redouble your efforts and remain ever vigilant to obtain your end goals. Very seldom are you defeated. This is why many people look up to you and follow you as their leader. You are competitive and ambitious even in the most casual settings. You can appear to be arrogant but in actuality you’re just very confident in your abilities. Truth be known, you are quite generous, kind and affectionate (once people get to know you). Highly intelligent, you skate through academics where others may struggle. Because many things come to you so easily, you may have a tendency to rest on your laurels. In other words, if not kept active, you may slip into an unhealthy and lazy lifestyle. Holly signs may look to Ash and Elder signs for balance and partnership.
.
<> <>Hazel – The Knower
August 5 – September 1
If you are born under the energy of the Hazel, you are highly intelligent, organized and efficient. Like the Holly, you are naturally gifted in academia, and excel in the classroom. You also have the ability to retain information and can recall, recite and expound on subjects you’ve memorized with amazing accuracy. You know your facts, and you are always well informed. This sometimes makes you appear like a know-it-all to others, but you can’t help that; you’re genuinely smart and usually know the right course of action because of your impressive knowledge base. You have an eye for detail, and like things to be “just so.” Sometimes this need for order and control can lead to compulsive behaviors if left unchecked. You have a knack for numbers, science and things that utilize your analytical skills. You like rules, although you are typically making them rather than playing by them. The Celtic tree astrology sign of Hazel joins harmoniously with Hawthorn and Rowan’s.
.
<> Vine – The Equalizer
September 2 – September 29
Vine signs are born within the autumnal equinox, which makes your personality changeable and unpredictable. You can be full of contradictions, and are often indecisive. But this is because you can see both sides of the story, and empathize with each equally. It is hard for you to pick sides because you can see the good points on each end. There are, however, areas in your life that you are quite sure about. These include the finer things of life like food, wine, music, and art. You have very distinctive taste, and are a connoisseur of refinement. Luxury agrees with you, and under good conditions you have a Midas touch for turning drab into dramatic beauty. You are charming, elegant, and maintain a level of class that wins you esteem from a large fan base. Indeed, you often find yourself in public places where others can admire your classic style and poise. Vine signs pair well with Willow and Hazel signs.
.
<> Ivy – The Survivor
September 30 – October 27
Among other cherished qualities of the Ivy Celtic tree astrology sign, most prized is your ability to overcome all odds. You have a sharp intellect, but more obvious is your compassion and loyalty to others. You have a giving nature, and are always there to lend a helping hand. You are born at a time of the waning sun so life can be difficult for you at times. This sometimes seems unfair because it appears that obstacles are coming at with no prompting on your part. Nevertheless, you endure troubling times with silent perseverance and soulful grace. Indeed, Ivy signs have a tendency to be deeply spiritual and cling to a deep-rooted faith that typically sees them trough adversity. You are soft spoken, but have a keen wit about you. You are charming, charismatic, and can effectively hold your own in most social settings. Ivy signs are attracted to the Celtic tree astology sign of Oak and Ash signs.

Days of the Week

Monday’s child is fair of face.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
Wednesday’s child is full of woe.
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving.
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay
.

The seven day week is thought to have originated among the ancient Babylonians. The week was developed by dividing each lunar month into four sections of approximately seven days each.  Each day was then associated with a planet and god. Some historians believe associating the days of the week with the planets originated with the ancient Egyptians.  Christianity and Islam adopted the seven day week from Judaism. Both chose worship days, the day of rest, separate from the Jews…the Christians chose Sunday and the Muslims chose Friday…both days touched the original Sabbath day of Saturday.  Later the Greeks and Romans and other European and Asian countries adopted the seven day week system and named the days after the Sun and Moon, planets, and various gods.

The zodic of Mark

Mark.1       ariese

[1] The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
[2] As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
[3] The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
[4] John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
[5] And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
[6] And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
[7] And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
[8] I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
[9] And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
[10] And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
[11] And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
[12] And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
[13] And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
[14] Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
[15] And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
[16] Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
[17] And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
[18] And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
[19] And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
[20] And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
[21] And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
[22] And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
[23] And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
[24] Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
[25] And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
[26] And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
[27] And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
[28] And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
[29] And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
[30] But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
[31] And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
[32] And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
[33] And all the city was gathered together at the door.
[34] And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
[35] And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
[36] And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
[37] And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.
[38] And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.
[39] And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
[40] And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
[41] And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
[42] And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
[43] And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
[44] And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
[45] But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

Mark.2

[1] And again he entered into Capernaum, after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
[2] And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
[3] And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
[4] And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
[5] When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
[6] But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
[7] Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
[8] And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
[9] Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
[10] But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
[11] I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
[12] And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
[13] And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.
[14] And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.
[15] And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.
[16] And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
[17] When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
[18] And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
[19] And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
[20] But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
[21] No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
[22] And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
[23] And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.
[24] And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?
[25] And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?
[26] How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?
[27] And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
[28] Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Mark.3

[1] And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
[2] And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
[3] And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
[4] And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
[5] And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
[6] And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
[7] But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
[8] And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
[9] And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
[10] For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
[11] And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
[12] And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.
[13] And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.
[14] And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
[15] And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
[16] And Simon he surnamed Peter;
[17] And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
[18] And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
[19] And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
[20] And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
[21] And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
[22] And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
[23] And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
[24] And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
[25] And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
[26] And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
[27] No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
[28] Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
[29] But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
[30] Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
[31] There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
[32] And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
[33] And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
[34] And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
[35] For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

Mark.4  tarus

[1] And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
[2] And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
[3] Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
[4] And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
[5] And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
[6] But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
[7] And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
[8] And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
[9] And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[10] And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
[11] And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
[12] That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
[13] And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?
[14] The sower soweth the word.
[15] And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
[16] And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
[17] And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.
[18] And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
[19] And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
[20] And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
[21] And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?
[22] For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
[23] If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
[24] And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
[25] For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.
[26] And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
[27] And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
[28] For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
[29] But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
[30] And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
[31] It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
[32] But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
[33] And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
[34] But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

gemini
[35] And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
[36] And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
[37] And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
[38] And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
[39] And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
[40] And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
[41] And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Mark.5

[1] And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
[2] And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
[3] Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
[4] Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
[5] And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
[6] But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
[7] And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
[8] For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
[9] And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
[10] And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
[11] Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
[12] And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
[13] And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
[14] And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
[15] And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
[16] And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.
[17] And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
[18] And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
[19] Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
[20] And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
[21] And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
[22] And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
[23] And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
[24] And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
[25] And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
[26] And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
[27] When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
[28] For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
[29] And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
[30] And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
[31] And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
[32] And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
[33] But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
[34] And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
[35] While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?
[36] As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
[37] And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
[38] And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
[39] And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
[40] And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
[41] And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
[42] And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
[43] And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

Mark.6

[1] And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
[2] And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
[3] Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
[4] But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
[5] And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
[6] And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
[7] And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
[8] And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
[9] But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
[10] And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
[11] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
[12] And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
[13] And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
[14] And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
[15] Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
[16] But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.
[17] For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.
[18] For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.
[19] Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
[20] For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
[21] And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
[22] And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
[23] And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
[24] And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
[25] And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.
[26] And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
[27] And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
[28] And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
[29] And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

[30] And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
[31] And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
[32] And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
[33] And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
[34] And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
[35] And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
[36] Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
[37] He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
[38] He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
[39] And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
[40] And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
[41] And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
[42] And they did all eat, and were filled.
[43] And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
[44] And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
[45] And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
[46] And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.
[47] And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.
[48] And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
[49] But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:
[50] For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
[51] And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
[52] For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
[53] And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
[54] And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
[55] And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.
[56] And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

Mark.7

[1] Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
[2] And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
[3] For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
[4] And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
[5] Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
[6] He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
[7] Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctines the commandments of men.
[8] For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
[9] And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
[10] For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
[11] But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
[12] And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
[13] Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
[14] And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
[15] There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
[16] If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
[17] And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
[18] And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
[19] Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
[20] And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
[21] For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
[22] Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
[23] All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
[24] And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.
[25] For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
[26] The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
[27] But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
[28] And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
[29] And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
[30] And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
[31] And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
[32] And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.
[33] And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;
[34] And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
[35] And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.
[36] And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
[37] And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Mark.8

[1] In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
[2] I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:
[3] And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
[4] And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?
[5] And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
[6] And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.
[7] And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.
[8] So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.
[9] And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
[10] And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
[11] And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
[12] And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
[13] And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
[14] Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
[15] And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
[16] And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
[17] And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
[18] Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
[19] When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
[20] And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
[21] And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
[22] And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
[23] And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
[24] And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
[25] After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
[26] And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
[27] And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
leo

[28] And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
[29] And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
[30] And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
[31] And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
[32] And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.
[33] But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
[34] And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
[35] For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
[36] For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
[37] Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
[38] Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Mark.9

[1] And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
[2] And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
[3] And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
[4] And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
[5] And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
[6] For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
[7] And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
[8] And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
[9] And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.
[10] And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
[11] And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
[12] And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.
[13] But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
[14] And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
[15] And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
[16] And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
[17] And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
[18] And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
[19] He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
[20] And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
[21] And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
[22] And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
[23] Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
[24] And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
[25] When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
[26] And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
[27] But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
[28] And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
[29] And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

virgo
[30] And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.
[31] For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
[32] But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
[33] And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
[34] But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.
[35] And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
[36] And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
[37] Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
[38] And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
[39] But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
[40] For he that is not against us is on our part.
[41] For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
[42] And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
[43] And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
[44] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
[45] And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
[46] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
[47] And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
[48] Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
[49] For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
[50] Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Mark.10 libra

[1] And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
[2] And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
[3] And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
[4] And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
[5] And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
[6] But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
[7] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
[8] And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
[9] What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
[10] And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
[11] And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
[12] And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
[13] And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
[14] But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
[15] Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
[16] And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
[17] And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
[18] And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
[19] Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
[20] And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
[21] Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
[22] And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
[23] And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
[24] And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
[25] It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
[26] And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
[27] And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
[28] Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
[29] And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
[30] But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
[31] But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

scorpion
[32] And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
[33] Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
[34] And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
[35] And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
[36] And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
[37] They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
[38] But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
[39] And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:
[40] But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
[41] And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
[42] But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
[43] But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
[44] And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
[45] For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
[46] And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
[47] And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
[48] And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
[49] And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
[50] And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
[51] And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
[52] And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Mark.11 sagittarus

[1] And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,
[2] And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.
[3] And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.
[4] And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
[5] And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
[6] And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
[7] And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
[8] And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.
[9] And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
[10] Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
[11] And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
[12] And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
[13] And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
[14] And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
[15] And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
[16] And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
[17] And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
[18] And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
[19] And when even was come, he went out of the city.
[20] And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
[21] And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
[22] And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
[23] For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
[24] Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
[25] And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
[26] But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

[27] And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
[28] And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
[29] And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
[30] The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
[31] And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
[32] But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
[33] And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mark.12

[1] And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
[2] And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
[3] And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
[4] And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
[5] And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
[6] Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
[7] But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
[8] And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
[9] What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
[10] And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
[11] This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
[12] And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
[13] And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
[14] And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
[15] Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
[16] And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
[17] And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
[18] Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
[19] Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
[20] Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
[21] And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
[22] And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
[23] In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
[24] And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
[25] For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
[26] And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
[27] He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
[28] And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
[29] And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
[30] And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
[31] And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
[32] And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
[33] And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
[34] And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
[35] And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
[36] For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
[37] David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
[38] And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
[39] And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
[40] Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
[41] And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
[42] And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
[43] And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
[44] For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

Mark.13 aquarius

[1] And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
[2] And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
[3] And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
[4] Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
[5] And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
[6] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
[7] And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
[8] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
[9] But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
[10] And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
[11] But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
[12] Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
[13] And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
[14] But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
[15] And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
[16] And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
[17] But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
[18] And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
[19] For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
[20] And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
[21] And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
[22] For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
[23] But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
[24] But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
[25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
[26] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
[27] And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
[28] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
[29] So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
[30] Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
[31] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
[32] But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
[33] Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
[34] For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
[35] Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
[36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
[37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Mark.14

[1] After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
[2] But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
[3] And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.
[4] And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
[5] For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
[6] And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
[7] For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
[8] She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
[9] Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
[10] And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
[11] And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
[12] And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
[13] And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
[14] And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
[15] And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
[16] And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

[17] And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
[18] And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
[19] And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
[20] And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
[21] The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
[22] And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
[23] And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
[24] And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
[25] Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
[26] And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
[27] And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
[28] But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
[29] But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
[30] And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
[31] But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
[32] And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
[33] And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
[34] And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
[35] And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
[36] And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
[37] And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
[38] Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
[39] And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
[40] And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
[41] And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
[42] Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
[43] And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
[44] And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
[45] And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
[46] And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
[47] And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
[48] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
[49] I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
[50] And they all forsook him, and fled.
[51] And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
[52] And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
[53] And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
[54] And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
[55] And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
[56] For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
[57] And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
[58] We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
[59] But neither so did their witness agree together.
[60] And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
[61] But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
[62] And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
[63] Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
[64] Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
[65] And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
[66] And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
[67] And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
[68] But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
[69] And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
[70] And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
[71] But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
[72] And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Mark.15

[1] And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
[2] And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.
[3] And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
[4] And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.
[5] But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
[6] Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
[7] And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
[8] And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.
[9] But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
[10] For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
[11] But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
[12] And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
[13] And they cried out again, Crucify him.
[14] Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
[15] And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
[16] And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
[17] And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
[18] And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
[19] And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
[20] And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
[21] And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
[22] And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
[23] And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
[24] And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
[25] And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
[26] And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
[27] And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
[28] And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
[29] And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
[30] Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
[31] Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
[32] Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
[33] And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
[34] And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
[35] And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
[36] And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
[37] And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
[38] And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
[39] And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
[40] There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
[41] (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
[42] And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
[43] Joseph of Arimathaea, and honourable counseller, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
[44] And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
[45] And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
[46] And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
[47] And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

Mark.16

[1] And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
[2] And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
[3] And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
[4] And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
[5] And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
[6] And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
[7] But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
[8] And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
[9] Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
[10] And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
[11] And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
[12] After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
[13] And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
[14] Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
[15] And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
[16] He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
[17] And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
[18] They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
[19] So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
[20] And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

STAR OF DAVID – THE COSMIC COUNTDOWN

STAR OF DAVID

The Cosmic countdown

Alignments, Symmetry & Patterns from 1990-2013

The purpose of this study, with chart for illustration (see link above) is to highlight a key

celestial occurrence in the Heavens called the Star of David planetary alignment. The

focus of the timeline presented will be from the most recent occurrences in our modern

time. Starting from 1990 to 2013, these peculiar planetary alignments seem to be

In particular, since 1990, there are 13 Star of David configurations that occur leading up

to the Tetrad of 2014-2015. The 13th occurrence* is the ‘last one’ leading up to the Tetrad

of 2014-2015. (See Dissection of a Tetrad chart) *As the date rage is noted on the chart

as being from July 22 – Aug 26, 2013 the 13th alignment is a ‘twin’ star with its double

occurring on Aug 25/26. The time difference from the first ‘Twin’ Star to occur in 1996 to

the ‘Twin’ Star of 2013 is 17 years. What is sort of similar is that the Twin Star of 1996 to

the Tetrad of 2003 is 7 years. After 2013, there will not be another such configuration of

either a Tetrad or Star of David alignment associated with a Tetrad for another 100 years

or so.

The Star of David alignments appears to follow a ‘countdown’ sequence or frequency of

sorts. It very much appears to be like the Total Solar Eclipses that occurred consecutively

on the 1st of Av in 2008, 2009 & 2010. Those 3 consecutive Eclipses appeared to signal

the ‘countdown’ to the start of the 7-Year Solar-Lunar pattern. (See Solar Eclipse pattern

chart) It appears that this same principle or ‘astronomical law’ is at work here with the Star

of David alignment pattern & symmetry. The pattern likewise suggests a sort of a ‘cosmic

countdown’ perhaps is highlighting the Tetrad of 2014-15. As to who or what event the

countdown is specifically referring to, that will remain to be seen.

Perhaps these Star of David ‘signs’ in the Heavens could it be a countdown to the

Rapture, the New World Order, the rise of the AntiChrist, World War 3 or a combination of

all the above & more. For the purposes of this study, only a better understanding of the

Star of David’s numerology & patterns will be presented & considered. Nonetheless,

students of Biblical Prophecy can tell you though, that Biblical Scripture is very clear as to

what is coming specifically in the Last Days: the Rapture, sudden destruction, chaos,

antichrist, war, disease, death, Return of Jesus Christ, etc. 2

Perhaps all these events are already ‘written’ in the stars through such clues to be found

in the Solar-Lunar Eclipses, comets & the Star of David planetary alignments. Many

would agree. Perhaps but for context, the following items will also be illustrated:

1) The pattern of all Total Lunar Eclipses since 1989 to 2013 will be plotted onto the Star

of David timeline. It appears that various Total Lunar Eclipses provide some spectacular

symmetry as well corresponding to the Start of David configurations & frequency leading

up to the Tetrad of 2014-15.

2) The Tetrad of 2014-2015 will also be noted that corresponds to certain Jewish Feasts.

According to research, this particular Tetrad is the 8th since Jesus Christ. What is peculiar

about these 8 Tetrads is that they have all the 4 consecutive Total Lunar Eclipses

correspond to the Jewish Feast days of either Passover & Sukkot -to the very day.

3) A detailed construction of the 13th Star of David planetary alignment will be illustrated.

The corresponding heavenly bodies at each coordinate & sign of the Zodiac will be noted

on an astrological chart. For context the Astrological, Sidereal & Tropical Zodiacs will be

illustrated along with the 4 cosmic cardinal Star Points. The 4 cardinal Stars are in the

Constellations of Scorpio, Leo, Taurus & Aquarius. These Constellation Signs also

correspond to the 4 Living Creatures that surround the Throne of the LORD in Heaven, as

described in the Bible. From Biblical Scripture, they are known & recognized as the Man,

the Eagle, the Bull & the Lion. The corresponding Star for each Sign is Fomalhault,

Antares, Aldebaran & Regulus.

4) A 3D view of the Star of David alignment of the Planets in our Solar System will be

illustrated. When a Star of David alignment occurs, it is not actually configured that way in

the Heavens as the actual Star of David symbol because of how we see the alignment

from our vantage point in the sky. How it translates from our vantage point is a ‘T’ or cross

configuration of the Planets. (See chart for illustration)

‘STAR WARS’

What is interesting to note about this Star pattern is that 3 of the Star of David planetary

alignments since 1990 are considered to be what many call ‘War Stars.’ This term is

ascribed to them because major regional wars quickly broke out shortly after their

appearances in the Heavens. In the decade of 2000-2009, you had ‘War Stars’ occur in

2001, 2002 & 2007. The last 13th Star of David is predicted to be a ‘War Star’.

What this may mean is that if this Star of David pattern is valid from prior correlations to

war, then perhaps 2013 will see the current major regional world conflict escalate to a 3

major military confrontation. This could very well mean that it will involve a multi-national

coalition of nations as they were for the Iraq invasion in 2002 & with the troop serge in

Afghanistan that started in 2007.

To reiterate, this Star of David symbol is only construed when plotting the coordinates of

the corresponding planetary alignments onto an Astrological Chart. The actual Star of

David symbol cannot be configured in the sky as the planetary coordinates are on a flat

piece of 1-deminsional paper. However, there are cosmic coordinates that exist that do

configure an actual Star of David symbol in the Cosmos. Most astronomers, as well as

astrologers do recognize this to be true. There are 6 cardinal points or stars in the Zodiac

or Mazzaroth that approximates an actual Star of David symbol in the Heavens. These

stars are in Aquila & in Cetus, Arcturus, Regulus, Sirius, & Eridanus.

THE PATTERN & FREQUENCY

The Star of David alignments appear to have definite numerical patterns -with

corresponding symmetry to other Star of David alignments & with Total Lunar Eclipses.

The Star of David cluster, starting in Aug 1990 to Sep 2001 has an identical &

symmetrical proportion of time. The midpoint has an incredible ‘twin’ or 2 consecutive Star

of David configurations, the 4

th & 5

th ones in Sep & Oct of 1996. These 2 or Twin Star of

David alignments seems to serve as sort of a fulcrum within the timeline presented. (See

chart of illustration)

From observation, the 13th Star of David planetary alignments appear to be a clear

countdown to the Tetrad of 2014-15. IF this is the case, for one, it makes the Tetrad of

2014-25 a phenomenon like no other Tetrad occurrence. In Biblical prophetic

perspectives, the time or season in which the Tetrad occurs will witness within about 2

years, the 70th year anniversary of the birth of Israel & the 50th year anniversary of the

recapture of the Temple Mount of Jerusalem by the Jewish Nation.

Continuing in the timeline, after the Twin Star of David fulcrum time-marker you have a

spectacular sequence in increasing frequency. There are 3 pair of Star of David, the 7th & 8 th, 9th & 10th

, 11th & 12th that begins the ‘countdown’ with increasing frequency. The

Stars of David get closer to each other specifically starting with the 9

th & 10th

configurations. The 2

nd half of the Star pattern seems to have a pattern of its own. This

frequency sequence leads up to the singular 13th & ‘last’ Star of David configuration

before the Tetrad of 2014-2015. It is like a celestial drum-roll. Could this celestial

resonance be corresponding to the frequency like that of a ‘labor pain’ Jesus Christ

warned about would characterize the Last Days before His Return.

According to a generic description of a woman’s labor pains, the contractions become

more intense & closer together in terms of frequency leading to the birthing. The Star of 4

David alignments in the Heavens perhaps are just mirroring the pattern of actual ‘labor

pains’ the World, the Earth, the Creation are currently experiencing. IF you are current in

the real news of the day, one can not help but acknowledge that the whole World, Earth &

Creation is groaning; groaning for the Resurrection & ‘Rapture’ of the sons of God many

would say. (Romans 8v22) No doubt, the state of the World is fast approaching a point of

critical mass -of a ‘birthing’ to come & deliverance.

BIRTH PANGS & A DELIVERY

For those that speculate that the Rapture of the Bride of Christ might possibly be

corresponding to what is going on in the ‘Signs’ in the Sun, Moon & Stars, the pattern of

the Star of David from 1990 to 2013 does appear to be plausible ‘Signs’. Weather it might

lead to the timing of the Rapture will remain to be seen.

Perhaps the profound association with the Tetrad’s Jewish Feasts of 2014-2015 means

that Israel will be the focal point in the LORD’s time-table after the Rapture. Perhaps the

Star of David patterns are indeed signaling a ‘birth’ to occur of something as prophetic as

the Rapture. Perhaps there is a ‘birthing’ in more ways than one to likewise consider.

Eschatologically, some Bible researchers do believe that there will be a several ‘birthings’

that can be ascribed to in the Last Days.

1) There is the ‘Christ-image’ within Believers that is forming much like a gestation period

of a pregnancy, as the Apostle Paul describes in Gal 4v19 metaphorically. Believers are

waiting until ‘Christ is formed i.e. birthed in you’. This spiritual process is called

Sanctification of the Believer. This stage in our present time can be view in terms of a

‘pregnancy’ or the cocoon stage of a butterfly if you will. Nonetheless, it does involve an

intense labor; a labor of love, of joy but mingled with pain & suffering along this Journey of

A Disciple of Christ strives to have this work of Sanctification by the Holy Spirit completed

or in other words, come to full term or gestation. This is worked out in a Disciple’s life until

the time of death –the Resurrection and/or Rapture. This principle can also be applied in

a corporate sense i.e. to the Bride of Christ. Corporately, once the collective ‘Bride has

made herself ready’, the Bride will be presented to Christ. She will be delivered or

‘birthed’ –at the time of the Rapture. Perhaps it might very well coincide with the sudden

destruction that Jesus Christ spoke about would come upon the world as a ‘women in

labor’. Are we not seeing this now in the world now?

2) Then there is the ‘birthing’ of the New Age that the luciferians, occultists & antiChristians are expecting at the very end of 2012 & going into 2013. They believe that their

mother earth, Gaia is ‘pregnant’ & is about to give birth to their New World Order. There

rationale though has a sinister plot in that the Earth has to cleanse itself before humanity

The purpose of this illustration is to highlight a key celestial occurrence in the Heavens called the Star of David planetary alignment. The focus of the time-time presented will be from the most recent occurrences in our

modern time starting from 1990 to 2013. Since 1990, there are 13 Star of David configurations that occur. The 13th occurrence is the ‘last one’ leading up to the Tetrad of 2014-2015. *Apparently the 13th one is a ‘twin’ star

with its double occurring on Aug 25/26 (Updated) like the one in 1996. After 2013, there will not be another such configuration of either a Tetrad or Star of David leading up to a Tetrad alignment for another 100 years or so.

The pattern of all Total Lunar Eclipses since 1989 to 2013 will be plotted onto the Star of David timeline. It appears that various Total Lunar Eclipses provide some spectacular symmetry as well corresponding to the Start of

David configurations & frequency leading up to the Tetrad of 2014-15. The Star of David alignments appear to have definite numerical patterns -with corresponding symmetry to other Star of David alignments & with Total

Lunar Eclipses. The Star of David cluster, starting in Aug 1990 to Sep 2001 has an identical & symmetrical proportion of time. The midpoint has an incredible ‘twin’ or 2 consecutive Star of David configurations, the 4th & 5th

ones in Sep & Oct of 1996. These 2 or Twin Star of David alignments seem to serve as sort of a fulcrum within the timeline.

From observation, the 13 Star of David planetary alignments appear to be a clear countdown to the Tetrad of 2014-15. In Biblical prophetic perspectives, the time or season in which the Tetrad occurs will witness, within

about 2 years, the 70th year anniversary of the birth of Israel & the 50th year anniversary of the recapture of the Temple Mount of Jerusalem by the Jewish Nation. It also appears that there is a spectacular sequence in the

increase in frequency related to the countdown after the Twin Star of David fulcrum time-markers of 1996, which is 17 years to its counterpart ‘twin’ of 2013. There are 3 pair of Star of David: the 7th & 8th, 9th & 10th, 11th & 12th

that intensify the ‘countdown’ with increasing frequency that lead up to the single Star of David alignment of 2013. The Star of David alignments get closer to each other starting with the 9th & 10th configurations. It is like a

celestial drum-roll; perhaps corresponding to the ‘labor pains’ that Jesus Christ warned about would characterize the Last Days on Earth before His Return. Perhaps these alignments in the Heavens are just mirroring the pattern of actual ‘labor pains’

“Immediately following the distress of those DAYS, ‘the SUN will be darkened, & the MOON will not give its light (turn to blood); the STARS will fall from the sky, & the Heavenly Bodies will be shaken.’” -Gospel of Matthew 24:29 & Acts 2:20/Revelation 6:12

The purpose of this study is to focus & amplify the 2014-2015 TETRAD time segment for a better understanding & to see its unique properties & patterns in light of Biblical Astronomy. The 4 TOTAL LUNAR BLOOD MOONS are paired up –

accompanied by their immediate & complementary Solar Eclipse. The March 20, 2015 Total Solar Eclipse in particular seems to accent & highlight the sequence & could signal a very significant time-marker. It is the only Total Solar

Eclipse in the solar series & happens to fall precisely on the Spring Equinox; it is either to mark an ‘end’ or a ‘beginning’ of a moment in time that could have prophetic significance of Biblical proportions. The Jewish Civil Year is

superimposed below the modern time-line as are the Equinoxes with the day-spans between each type of Eclipse & between the Moon & Sun Eclipses to have a context & overall perspective of timing.

In the years 2014-2015, a phenomenon will occur during this time-frame in our modern history that could herald a ‘prophetic event’ in the ‘prophetic clock ‘of God -The LORD GOD Creator of the Heavens & Earth (יהוה) GOD of Israel.

In the Heavens, there will be a ‘witness’ -a unique consecutive 4 Total Lunar Eclipse sequence or TETRAD spanning 1.5 years. This event has not occurred since the end of World War 2 (1949/50) & the Arab-Israeli 6-Day War

(1967/68). It is the 8th since CHRIST & will not repeat until well into the distant future-if time is constant & continuing. What is significant is that each TETRAD period is marked precisely by the Jewish First & Last Feasts of GOD –

Passover & Sukkot. During each TETRAD, it has been a time of great travail for the nation of Israel, a time marred by war, death & or life/rebirth, struggle. JESUS CHRIST stated that when His Return would be at hand, the Moon would

turn Red as ‘blood’ & the Sun would turn Black as ‘sackcloth.’ These celestial markers would then be part of the significant signs to the forthcoming End of Days & related to CHRIST’S pending Final Judgment & the consummation of

the end of this present Evil Age. The TETRAD sequence then is perhaps yet but another of GOD’S signatures & time pieces. FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. NO PREDICTIONS ARE MADE.Winter Solstice 5776 Terms:

OBSERVATIONS:

– There are 3 Partial & 1 Total Solar Eclipses that accompany the 4 Blood TETRADS exactly by a difference of 15 days; symmetrically mirrored to each other by 177 & 148 days for the Solars, 177 & 179 for the Lunars –the 1st 2 Solars are after Blood Moons, the last 2 are before.

– The Blood Moons occur near the Spring & Autumnal Equinoxes & the half way mark in terms of ‘time’ for the TETRAD sequence is on Dec/Jan 2014-2015. The last Solar Eclipse which is a Partial occurs exactly on Rosh HaShana, September 13, 2015 & then 15 days later is Sukkot.

A year to shut down

This is an anagram a very intresting one since this mininumun has bugan the thirtheen year so far has been biblical aploylictial and earth shattering with very intresting happening that has lead to many people what on earth is happening because this thing  did not happen so frequence and so distructively like earthquake ,volcano,extreem weather /hurricane even in the socity crime of all kind seem to as we  be go we will have a look so we can better understanding what the hell is going on so u can bring the order out of the chase .the Georgian calendar is not the ownly calendar there are a few other and their starting point .


GREGORIAN 2000 Pope Gregory XIII updated the Christian Calendar in1582. Only Europeans identified Year One with the birth of Christ.
BUDDHIST 2544 Year One marks the death of Buddha which was around 543 B.C. Not all Buddhists follow this calendar. The Tibetan monks follow a calendar that comes full cycle every 60 years. It is related to the Chinese calendar, with each year named after an animal and an element. The new year begins on the Gregorian day of Feb. 6, 2000 It will be the end of the year of the Earth Hare and the beginning of the Year of the Iron Dragon.
CHINESE 4697 China’s calendar was invented in the Gregorian year of 2637 B.C. It has been revised many times. It runs in 60 year cycles, each year named for a constellation and for one of 12 animals connected to the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese calendar is now in the 16th year of the current cycle, the year of the Rabbit. The year of the Dragon starts on the Gregorian Feb. 5, 2000.
ETHIOPIAN 

COPTIC CHRISTIANS

1993 

1716

Ethiopian Orthodox Christians date Christ’s birth akin to the Gregorian year A.D. 7. The Ethiopian calendar is similar to ancient  Egypt with 12 months of 30 days and a 13th month of five days.Coptic Christians follow the calendar of the Martyrs. It begins in the Gregorian year of 284, the year Diocletian, a persecuter of Christians became emperor of Rome.
HEBREW 5760 Year one of the Hebrew Calendar is the Gregorian year of 3761 B.C.E. It is a lunar calendar, in 19 year cycles, counting months from full moon to full moon. There is a ‘leap month’ added every few years to close the gap between lunar and solar cycles. Leap years run about 384 days, normal years with 354.
HINDU 1921 The Hindu calendar which was mentioned in the Rig-Veda was originally a lunar calendar. It was revised in A.D. 79 – Year One is known as 1 Saka. It has been updated in 1957 operating on the Gregorian leap-year system. Religious holidays are calculated according to the positions of the sun and moon.
MAYAN 5119 The Mayan’s use three calendars. The 5,130 year Great Cycle ends on the Gregorian year 2012. The Maya based their original calendar on the true seasonal year with 365 days. They also have a 260 day calendar for astrological predictions. The third calendar is based on the moon’s phases.
MUSLIM 1420 Muhammad’s trek to Hegira marks the beginning of this calendar which was akin to 622 A.D. This is a lunar calendar of alternating months of 29 and 30 days. The Muslim year has 354 days. For this reason, seasons fall backward and birthdays are earlier and earlier each year. Each month starts with the new moon.

 

 

 

Moshiya de Broek. The golden ratio and the Hebrew alphabet
There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet when god set the stage , there were then 5 added so it could be expressed. He created the circles. Sun’s planets and moons , so 22(oo)5 22 and 5 5760 909 divided by 2618
Is 22,005. 5760 is of course the eight again and the 909 is aum/amen
26 x 18 =468 mirror of 864. 468 x 2 =936 x 2 =1872 , 468 x 11 = 5148
468 x 22 = 10296. now as you know the golden ratio is created by joining
The two stars ( the 5 and 6 pointed stars ) and those two circles
Sign for Phi
Now look at the sign for Phi
The 8
Now look at the two circles
576 divided by 22 is 26,18181818181818181…( the 18 divided by 5 is 3,6 cycle of 360).
Returning cycles.
Everything in nature goes through cycles, seasons etc. and they in turn influence you. It is much like a clock, a cycle is a track between 4 points much like a clock, first zero, second 3 o’clock, third 6 o’clock, fourth 9 o, clock and returning to zero again.
They are circular and when plotted out they show a sinus type of wave.
Sin wave

Looking at this sinus wave you can see a minimum and maximum and two sort of in between like spring and autumn. but planets too and their position in relation to others all have their influence, so history knows such highs and lows as well. Lets look at the Mayan calendars and see that they match up.

They have 15 calendars and is called Quiche’

IXIM TUN the first calendar has a revolution of 130 days used by farmers

MOM TUN the second calendar has a revolution of 180 days a micro cycle of insects and to do with fertility also used for farming (while far more then this it is intended to show you the cyclic nature).

TZOLK’IN the third calendar lasts 260 days and is a cycle of 20 weeks of each 13 days and is related to the bio rhythm and birth cycle and 13 power points in the human body through which energy flows. But also related to place and time of birth.

TUN the fourth calendar lasts 360 days a cosmic calendar in perfect harmony with the cycles of the stars, planets and galaxies.

TZ’OTZ TUN the 5th calendar has 364 days and has 28 days adding up to 13 months and related to the moon. And said to be used for prophesy and there were 5 tribes of mayans that used it. 52 weeks of 7 days is 364

IK TUN: the 6th calendar related to the actual moon cycle and feminine cycle.

HAAB: the 7th calendar of 365 days and is divided in 18 months of 20 days and a 5 day celebration that is called Vayab. It is also the best known calendar, and corrects in 180,000 years like the adjustment we do with our 4 year correction.

KIEJEB: the 8th calendar counts 400 days and is also known as a prophetic calendar and still in use.

MUCHUCHU MIL: the 9th calendar is a mayan centaury of 52 years and synchronizes the HAAB and Tzolk, in and when this one ends all fires stop burning, after 5 days ZERO POP, the fires are lit again by the priests.

CHOL TUN: the 10th calendar works much like the Tzolk’in but a macro cosmic calendar.

KU TUN: the 11th calendar lasts 520 years and varieties’ ,every 4 years a cycle where energy flows for the whole of mankind with special qualities.

TIKU TUN: the 12th calendar is divided in two cycles, the first is Belejeb Bolon Tiku of 9 times 52 cycles of darkness that is a full 468 years (look at the top part of this article to see more on this cycle) the second is Oxalajuj Tiku of 13 x 52 of 13 heavens or lights that lasts 676 years.

AJAU TUN: the 13th calendar of 13 cycles of 20 years.

EKOMAL TUN: the 14th calendar lasts 520 years and points to a male and female turning of the sun.

OX LAJUJ BAKTUN: the 15th calendar lasts 5200 years and is the one related to the 2012 and the change to the 5th sun, but the 2012 is not fully correct the mistake is made in the translation to the Gregorian calendar.

While much more could be said about these 15 calendars, they are only mentioned to show that they were familiar with the structure.

The earth travels 2412 miles in one and a half day (3 times 12 houses) the sun in the same time travels 17280000 miles this number is the 3 x 576 or the eight. In 24 hours the earth travels 1608 miles (please look at Km/Miles) 24 is of course a full day 12 day 12 night, the sun has then travelled 11520000 miles which is twice the eight or 576. in the one and half day the earth has travelled 36 hours, in 12 hours the earth travels 804 miles (a smaller 3) and 45 times the 12 hours (houses) it has travelled 36180 miles. 12 divided by 3 is 4 and 4 is half the eight or 8 and half (4) 804. it will take some effort but if you try to remember that the eight is also 576 and the four is 288 then 804 is a smaller cycle of 1,5 but also 864 (576+288=864) 60 seconds in a minute 60 minutes in a hour times 24 hours is 86400 seconds ( by the way the diameter of the sun is 86400) the cosmic clock also has the 12 houses and 864 times 3

Is 2592 ( 12 times 2160 is 25920 years) 2160 is the diameter of the moon again. The big house has many rooms. Why a day and half? Because it has 3 times 12 and that is a circle. A completion. do you remember 1656? 3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3=6561 count them there are 8 of these 3 (8×3=24)

360 divided by 5.76 is 0,625 (5 x 0,625 is 3,125 from the 5 books of the Thora). 0,625 x 8 is 5, times 9 is 5,625, 24 times is 15, 36 times is 22,5 and 72 times is 45, 88 times is 55. while 144 times is 90. the Thora has 304803 letters, leave the zero out 3483 divided by 0.625 is 55728, the 55 is equal to 1.

5+5 is 1(0)728. and the new testament is the story of 144. making 1872.

Let anyone who is wise count the number of the beast, 666 divided by 0.625 is 10656. 25 times 1656 is 41400 the one in the middle. the staff or snake.

37 x 1656 =61272 73 x 1656 =120888 61272 + 120888 =182160

18 times 2160 is 1,5 times the zodiac 38880. 1/3 is 1296. 12×96=1152=88 or twice 576. 1872 18 x 72=1296. (1152 /88 =1309,090909 half of golden ratio.)

1872 x 3 =5616

T-minus 37 days…

Major quake? Death of the Pope/Primate? … Remember Nickelback’s latest music video? …Earthquake in Rome…… all the indications are that something big is coming around late March. A straightforward interpretation would be that it’s going to involve Italy/Rome/Pope (death?), major earthquake, war, and/or such things.

Feb 07Super Bowl, “2012,” and “pole shift”… somehow woven together by Wisconsin.

[Packers based in Green Bay, Wisconsin.]
Feb 06 Green Bay Packers Win Super Bowl

[Wisconsin somehow a motif in movie 2012]

 

[Inexplicable cluster of “Wisconsin” events Jan-Feb 2011]

  • On Jan 14, 200 cows were found dead in Wisconsin
  • On Jan 23, Green Bay Packers from Wisconsin advances to Super Bowl
  • On Jan 24, Oprah Winfrey revealed her long lost sister who lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • On Jan 25, Obama hails “Sputnik moment” in State of the Union speech (piece of Soviet’s Sputnik 4 fell inWisconsin in 1962); customary Republican response to SOTU speech delivered by congressman from Wisconsin (Paul Ryan)
  • On Jan 26, Obama’s first visit/speech after his SOTU speech in Manitowoc, Wisconsin where piece of Sputnik 4 fell in 1962
  • On Jan 26, American Idol episode in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • On Feb 06, Green Bay Packers from Wisconsin wins Super Bowl

NOTES:

  • The next pentagrammic window is around February 11-12, coming directly from Jan 8 Tucson shooting (Giffords) and with the consistent theme so far of Venus/Morning Star/Lucifer.
  • I will do a more thorough review of the previous penta window (~Jan 26-27) which gave rise to the Egyptian uprising (still unfolding) probably after Feb 12. It’s more meaningful than you realize…

[Permalink]
.
Feb 13: As promised, a new article “Risen in Egypt“… to fill in the gaps. Should answer a lot of questions, most notably how the Egyptian Revolution ties in with the “Morning Star/Lucifer out of the Underworld” motif which it does indeed quite dramatically.
.
Feb 19Even more 2012-esque now (than before) with the Sun &Wisconsin erupting simultaneously this week…

From December 13, 2010~Dec 13Since it’s her birthday today…

Taylor Swift’s Speak Now released on Oct 25, 2010…
Chart positions:
Nov 20 #1 – Nov 27 #2 – Dec 04 #9 – Dec 11 #4 – Dec 18 #2

…coinciding with Venus entering ‘Underworld’ (invisible in glare of Sun) at Chile mine latitude (~Oct 26) before reborn just days later as ‘Morning Star’ AKA Lucifer. Goddess.

Look:

 

 

Coincidence? Sure, whatever helps you sleep at night…

  • First single from Speak Now was ‘Mine’.
  • ‘Mine’ was released on August 4, the day before Chilemine collapse (Aug 5).

 

Next pentagrammic point… winter solstice.
.
Dec 18The multicontextual significance of the very rare coincidence coming up of a total lunar eclipse taking place on the winter solstice (Dec 21)…

  • It marks the final pentagrammic orbital contact point of the year; the previous two points in the sequence were Prince William’s engagement announcement (Nov 16) and the successful rescue of the 33 Chilean miners (Oct 9-13).
  • It marks the opposite point from Prince William’s birthday (summer solstice), the eldest son of Diana, a ‘moon goddess’.
  • The Moon will turn reddish during the eclipse. In Japanese ‘red moon’ might be called ‘aka-tsuki’ (aka = red, tsuki = moon), a homonym of ‘akatsuki’ meaning ‘dawn’ – the name of a Japanese (JAXA) spacecraft recently sent to Venus the ‘Morning Star’ (= ‘Lucifer’ = ‘son of dawn’); the Akatsuki probe failed to enter Venus orbit on Dec 6, two days after Venus reached peak brightness (coinciding with an equinoctially aligned pentagrammic date).
  • The same day (Dec 6) saw NASA’s Nanosail-D spacecraft being ejected from the launch vehicle (later failing to unfurl its experimental solar sail), echoing Japan’s Ikarossolar sail spacecraft launched with Akatsuki back on May 20 when the Sun was closest to the Pleiades star cluster AKA (mythologically) ‘seven daughters of Atlas’ or ‘Atlantides’; ‘Pleiades’ means ‘sailing (ones)’. Sun + Pleiades (sail) = ‘solar sail’. May 20 was also the day the ‘Dawn‘ module (=> akatsuki), delivered by space shuttle Atlantis (=> Atlas), opened its hatch for the first time at the ISS (space station).
  • ‘Solar sail’ implies ‘solar wind’ which in turn alludes to the House of Windsor, the British Royal Family. Windsor => ‘winds-or’ => ‘winds-gold/sun’ (as or in French means gold which is traditionally interchangeable with the Sun) => ‘solar wind’.
  • Also worth mentioning: New film ‘Gulliver’s Travels‘ starring Jack Black to be released on December 22nd – a ‘giant‘ story prominently featuring the Bermuda/Devil’s Triangle… the same combination we had been seeing in our ‘The Event’ alignment scheme…

Dec 26An important postscript on the solstice eclipse…

The Moon turned blood-red exactly (and necessarily for any total lunar eclipse) 180 degrees away from the solstice Sun so as to become in effect the ‘torch of Orion’ at/near the Galactic Anticenter or the intersection of the Galactic Equator and the ecliptic (see picture above). It’s where the Sun annually finds itself on the summer solstice, ~June 21, the date of Prince William’s birth in 1982 from the lunar womb of Diana (= Roman moon goddess) which was also marked by a partial solar eclipse.

 

Viewed from London or anywhere along the Prime Meridian, this particular solar eclipse would have produced a precise alignment and/or greatest eclipse during culmination at the meridian or when the Sun reached its highest point in the local sky. London in this way was a ‘Chosen City’ that day… for the ‘Chosen One’ Prince William, born there that day at 9:03 pm (DST).

His fiancé Kate Middleton was also born with an eclipse on January 9th that same year (1982) – a total lunar eclipse, like the one we just had on the winter solstice.

Combined with the observations included in the previous post (Dec 18), it should be enough for you to start sensing the cosmicsignificance of the Royal Engagement and Wedding which will be one of the biggest events in 2011. So significant is it, in fact, that you are going to find that it’s quite literally ‘earthshaking’, big time, this one. But anyway…

…have to do with the Royal Wedding coming up on April 29? Sounds absurd, but the answer is “everything.” More or less. Which also implies some serious “earthshaking” or as I’d like to call it a “Birthquake,” per my previous declaration…

…the cosmic significance of the Royal Engagement and Wedding which will be one of the biggest events in 2011. So significant is it, in fact, that you are going to find that it’s quite literally ‘earthshaking’, big time, this one.

A preview of the preview flashed in the October 8, 2009 episode ofFlashForward

 

…in which a flock of crows falls from the sky at the time of the mysterious “Global Blackout” event during which people all over the world have “flashforward” visions of their lives as they will exist onApril 29, 2010 AKA “FlashForward Day.”

In 2011, April 29 = Royal Wedding Day.

No earthquake there per se, but for that we go to The Core… a bona-fide “Underworld” movie also containing a fairly long bird collision/death scene during the opening sequence which takes place in London and woven into the whole scene is a double-decker bus which at one point flashes the magic number “429” as in “4/29” or “April 29”!

Add to these the fact that The Core as a whole tells a story of extremeearth changes caused by a secret military “earthquake machine”dubbed “Project DESTINI” (Deep Earth Seismic Trigger INItiative)… I think you can see why (though this is only one of many reasons) I’ve been emphasizing for months now the potentiality of the “Big One Birthquake” (San Andreas Fault, US west coast, Ring of Fire, and so forth) for 2011 in conjunction with the “Day of Destiny” (4/29).

[Note: In case you’re wondering, I started paying attention to bothThe Core and FlashForward, highlighting them repeatedly down in the Underground/STRUG restricted area, back in November. Pattern-wise we were very much ahead of the curve on this.]

To top it all off, in Arkansas and apparently most other places which had similar incidents of birds falling from the sky, they were mostly “Red-winged Blackbirds” scientifically known as Agelaiusphoeniceus. As noted by a reader, “phoeniceus” stems from the same root as “phoenix”! The phoenix embodies that which “Rises from the Underworld” a la the Chilean mine rescue where a capsule/elevator dubbed “The Phoenix” miraculously brought up all 33 miners out of the abyss safely as the whole world watched… multicontextuallyforeshadowing the Wedding/Rise of Prince William (among other things) who in turn is simulating the Resurrection of King Arthur, interchangeable with the Rebirth of the Phoenix. (See previous posts for all that.) It was a major “pentagrammic” event… (Note: “Core”/”Kore” is another name for Persephone the Greek goddess of the Underworld and is closely associated with the pentagram.)

We are quickly approaching the next such pentagrammic point – the first one of 2011 – coming up around January 8th.

While I’m not expecting the “Birthquake” there (or on April 29 for that matter), we should see an unmistakable “signal” that should continue the ongoing pattern/communication.

Congresswoman Giffords shot in Tucson

 

 

Congresswoman (Giffords) from Tuscon, Arizona

    • Tucson = “two sun” = “Lucifer” (in Arthur C. Clarke’s “2010: The YearWe Make Contact” Jupiter explodes into a second sun dubbed “Lucifer”)
    • Giffords married to NASA shuttle astronaut – the film “The Astronaut’s Wife” is about extraterrestrial possession/baby
    • Arizona capital = Phoenix; Arizona flag = pentagram

Jan 15 Update : David Bowman…

– “Main” character in 2001/2010 is “Dr. David Bowman” who is reborn as “Star-Child” before  Jupiter’s “Lucifer” (“two-sun”)  explosion
– First doctor at scene of Tucson/”two-sun” shooting (going first to Congresswoman) was named “Dr. David Bowman” [video interview]

Foresight in hindsight – from JAN 5 post:

“We are quickly approaching the next such pentagrammic point – the first one of 2011 – coming up around January 8th. …we should see an unmistakable ‘signal’ that should continue the ongoing pattern/communication.”

[Permalink]
Jan 20Almost time for the next pentagrammic contact point,~January 26-27, of the solstice-aligned variety. Whereas the previous one (equinox-aligned, giving us the Tucson shooting) was temporally anchored by  the Venus inferior conjunction (Oct 29) and such with main focus on Lucifer/Morning Star, this one stems directly from theChile mine rescue, i.e. “Phoenix” out of the “Underground.” It has a very similar, interchangeable theme but with emphasis slightly more on the royalty aspect of the narrative identifying Prince William as the “Morning Star King” (i.e. Lucifer). No coincidence, in fact, that North (& South) Korea was all over the news around the winter solstice; the country’s heir presumptive (prince) Kim Jong-un has thenickname “Morning Star King” and his birthday happens to be January 8 (Tucson tragedy).

 

For good measure the Devil himself said “hi” on the winter solstice, which actually makes a lot of multicontextual sense (see graphic right).

Makes us wonder… Congresswoman Giffords is miraculously recovering from her head wound in Tucson – near Phoenix (= resurrection) – as if to reenact the tale of the Beast in the Book of Revelation who is described as doing just that, miraculously recovering from a severe head wound. Note that the shooter’s last name “Loughner” means “healer,” which finds further resonance in the recent Ophiuchus/”new Zodiac”buzz on the web and in the mainstream news as Ophiuchus is normally identified with Asclepius, a healer.

Looking ahead, a big event already scheduled for the window coming up (~Jan 26-27) is Obama’s State of the Union address on January 25 (where we may see more “healing” gestures as the members of the two usually dueling political parties may sit togetherthis year, breaking tradition in response to Tucson). Apart from the seating arrangement, my main interest there (for now) would be to see if the customary GOP response speech coming right after the presidential address will be delivered by one Marco Rubiofrom Florida. He’s someone I’m watching very closely (since November) just as I did with Obama starting in 2004 and also Palin starting just days after her debut (i.e. projecting her 2012 presidential ambition). Rubio may well be picked to run as the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2012… a possibility made more realistic if he gave the GOP response speech on January 25.

[UPDATE Jan 21: Nope, it’s gonna be Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) who will do the GOP rebuttal. Interesting. Regardless, Rubio should be watched closely over the next two presidential election cycles. He can still say “hi” to the nation in January 2012 doing the rebuttal then.]

More generally speaking, however, based on the pattern we’ve seen thus far we should be on the lookout in the main for “Morning Star King” events/signals.

[In 2012 (film) we see powerful solar flares heating up the earth’s core (a la The Core already discussed) and moving the south magnetic pole to Wisconsin.]

 

The timing here is important. Without going into detail, let’s just say we’ll like have an “interesting” – very interesting – Easter/Resurrectionsequence this year peaking mid/late April (in a way stemming from last year’s Deepwater Horizon opening a “portal” into the “underworld”). The Royal Wedding is naturally part of it along with the theoretical “Birthquake” but not exclusively so. The sequence may begin as early as early- March. That’s it for now on that.
