If you’re a senior, this TV show (on Amazon Prime) may appeal to you. Otherwise, it may seem boring.
The first teleportation flight we witness in episode one is their 856th (or at least that’s what I heard him say), which caught my ear because it’s the reverse of our street number! It basically said, “Pay attention, here.”
By episode two, the viewer will realize that their portal is not the only one on earth, and that there is some ‘spiritual’ significance to their existence. We haven’t watched the rest of the series yet, but it is shaping up to be some kind of battle between good and evil. It’s a shame that there is no season two.
This image represents the Demiurge. He is the ruler of this world. He is not God. We are God.
What I find fascinating is that the ‘script’ running along both sides of this image represents the astrological signs (Aries to Virgo on the right side, Libra to Pisces on the left, but upside-down). I wonder who wrote this? (Part of me thinks that it was John Dee.) In fact, this looks as if planetary aspects and/or positions are being highlighted.
When I first wrote “The Star of Bethlehem” I became aware that I had a wealth of knowledge at my fingertips, far beyond my wildest dreams. I often wondered why. It is now, only after acknowledging Tiberius Julius Alexander as my 1st century past life, that it starts to make sense. If he is the true author of Jesus’ life story, he wrote it to demonstrate spiritual truths from all religions, not as scripture, but as allegory. That is a Gnostic’s way of trying to explain why Jesus had no kingdom on this earth. He was trying to show people how to become kings over the All.
I cannot imagine how I would have felt on this date in 70 AD. As Tiberius Julius Alexander, the siege would have been a necessary evil. The Jewish rebellion had been going on for 4 years. It was time to bring peace back to the region. At this point in time, Rome needed to regain control of Jerusalem.
When I see a line-up of planets and lights like this, I get a clear sense of the cosmic energies at play: the Sun/Neptune conjunction in opposition to the Moon/Saturn conjunction all squared to Jupiter. It’s not hard to see who was who. I chose 9:00 am local time, to see what was going on. I suspect that the true siege began when the Ascendant crossed Jupiter @ 26° Cancer, later in the day. That position of Mars @ 2° Aries may represent my past lifetime as Titus’ second-in-command. It is near where my North Node is in the present lifetime, but is more closely aligned with John Dee’s time as Pluto. Anyway, I digress.
This event proved to be the making of Titus. And the planets align to prove that. There are two interactive Yods (Fingers of God), one pointing at the event’s Ascendant, the other pointing at Titus’ Moon. The event’s Jupiter is involved in a double inconjunct with Titus’ Pluto/Midheaven conjunction. Titus’ Saturn is conjunct the Moon/Saturn conjunct in the Siege’s chart, while Titus’ Neptune is conjunct the Siege’s Pluto. Nothing is accidental.
Now, this begs the question: if Yahweh is on the Jewish side, how could this have happened? History (from our modern perspective) suggests that it was in punishment for killing Jesus, and a case can be made for that idea. Perhaps, as has been mooted previously, Titus really was the Second Coming of Jesus. Where does that leave Fundamental Christians today? The Apocalypse has already happened.
The counting of the votes was being supervised by a few of us. Literally, we could tell which vote was a ‘yes’ because it was on a white ballot, the ‘no’ was on a black ballot. But the numbers seem to be too close to call, so someone brought out the ‘reserve’ ballots to be counted with the white ones. Upon inspection, I found that at least one had written a ‘no’ on it and then signed their name. What the heck?
I’m not sure if this is inspired by spirit, or just my imagination playing a trick on me. When I looked at Alexei Navalny‘s photos yesterday, I got a little ‘a-ha’ which told me to compare his chart with Matt Gaetz’. Here’s Matt’s chart:
Now, we cannot rely on this birth time since it is unknown. This time was chosen randomly, so that Sun/Midheaven conjunction is speculative at best. There are therefore only two inconjuncts that we can rely upon.
Sun Inconjunct Saturn
You will have to learn the difference between having self-control and discipline, on the one hand, and totally denying yourself any self-expression, on the other. This aspect can mean that you feel extremely unworthy, which undermines your self-confidence and makes it hard to face obstacles in life with confidence and determination.
You may even feel that persons, forces or circumstances are conspiring to prevent you from doing what you want. You may be limited by fear or by the belief that you don’t deserve to get what you want. With this aspect there is a danger that your frustrated energies will turn into physical ailments that further limit your freedom of action.
Sometimes you may be afraid to get the freedom to do what you want, for the rigid structure and rules that you are forced to live under seem to give you a feeling of security. At the same time, however, part of you does want to be free.
Venus Inconjunct Jupiter
This can be a positive aspect if you learn to control some of its negative possibilities. You are likely to lack energy and to be rather passive. You may wait for opportunities to come to you, rather than go after them. You may not have enough energy to pursue your ambitions, or you may not have much ambition. Or you may love your comfort so much that you are unwilling to make any effort to put up with any pain that could help you grow and develop. However, if there are any indication of energy in your chart, they should overcome the passivity.
If you associate with difficult people, you may be unable to live up to your own standards of behavior. You may do things that you usually wouldn’t approve of, because somehow the relationship weakens your resolve to do what is right. But this won’t happen if you choose your friends carefully and avoid people who are not good for you.
These two seem like brothers from a different mother. Gaetz’ Jupiter is conjunct Navalny’s Uranus; Gaetz’ Mars is conjunct Navalny’s Ascendant; and Gaetz’ Sun is conjunct Navalny’s Jupiter. Hmm, again.
It looks like they both just want to be in opposition to the status quo, in my humble opinion.
Alexei Navalny has been in the news lately (and when hasn’t he?), so I thought I’d take a look at his birth chart, just to see what’s going on with him.
His birth time is considered ‘good’, although it’s based on someone’s memory, rather than documentation. The Virgo Rising energy is clearly evident when he spends all his time telling the world what is wrong with Putin. It is said that Putin won’t even say his name. That says a lot.
But there are no inconjuncts, so what you see is what you get, where his personality is concerned. Sun in Gemini, Moon in Virgo (and Virgo Ascendant): Mercury is his ruler. Because Mercury is in Taurus, his thinking is quite stubborn. Pluto in Libra in the 1st House of Personality speaks of a willingness to go the extra mile when trying to keep the peace and harmony in Russia. It’s a strange dynamic, to be sure. But the revealing planet is Mars in Leo: he has an ego the size of an ocean. He’s not afraid of Putin, because even if Putin kills him, Navalny will have won, because he would then be a martyr for his cause.
For someone who believes in reincarnation, this song has always presented me with a question mark.
But it presented itself to me this morning, as I was waking. That implies that I have been missing the point for all these years. So, the two lines that make up this post’s title and subtitle may be the clue.
“All the secrets in the universe whisper in our ears…”
Until yesterday, when Jacinda Ardern announced her resignation as Prime Minister, effective February 7, 2023. Normally, I don’t bother with politicians from anywhere outside of NATO, due to the lack of information and first-hand experience of their roles. I’m making an exception, here.
This is a randomized birth time, flipped from AM to PM. My reason? I wanted to highlight the timing of her election as Prime Minister @ 37 (Mars), and her resignation @ 42 (Pluto). To my mind, Pisces Ascendant in opposition to Saturn in Virgo perfectly describes how she appears to the world. Soft, but tough. There is only one inconjunct, not dependent on a correct birth time.
Venus Inconjunct Uranus
You feel mixed up about whether you want to be close to others or be free. Your uncertainty about love and freedom will be even greater if one of your parents doesn’t seem to really love you steadily, if you feel you cannot count on that parent when you need help. This would make you feel that love is somehow unreliable, that you cannot depend on anyone who loves you. As a result, you won’t permit anyone to depend on you either.
More likely the hate generated by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News empire got to be too much. Why do some men so dislike a strong woman in control? You don’t need to answer that question, it’s obvious.
This film is based on the 2018 coming of age book with the same title by Delia Owens. It’s not based on a true story (how could it?) and, in my opinion, it’s an allegory about xenophobia, the fear of strangers.
The “marsh girl” is Kya, a young lady who has been deserted by her family, living on the family ‘estate’ and surviving by bartering with the local shopkeeper and his wife. Her only friend for years is Tate, who teaches her to read and write and who encourages her to submit her nature art to a publisher. After Tate goes off to college, seemingly never to return, she accepts the attention of the high school jock, Chase. He is only after one thing, conquest. Then he meets a deadly end, and all fingers point at Kya as his killer.
Shunned by Society
My reason for writing about this story is how badly ordinary folk treat anyone who is ‘different’. In reality, the Jews have had a nasty reputation ever since they first appeared in history as descendants of Abraham. Their instruction from Yahweh to keep separate from other peoples has caused suspicion. Why? What are they hiding? Do they think they’re better than the rest of us? Who made them special?
When the crucifixion of a Jew called Jesus was carried out by the Romans in 1st century Palestine, subsequent followers of him have blamed the Jewish authorities (and by implication, the Jewish nation itself). This stigma has never gone away. Over the last two thousand years, Christians have persecuted the Jews, culminating in the Holocaust of WWII. But it hasn’t ended. The hate goes on:
Black Like Me
The second target of hate is anyone who has a different skin colour to the (formerly) dominate race. Or at least, they presume to be the dominate race, because they invaded, conquered and pillaged their way through any and all countries of the world. Not any more, much to their chagrin. The tide has turned and their ‘superiority’ is gone with the wind.
I heard an interesting statistic the other day: China’s population has started to decrease, and by the end of this year, India will be the most populated country in the world. Hmm.
And Speaking of China
Kung Flu is Trump’s nickname for COVID-19. In the States this joke has turned into a prolonged assault on all Orientals. People are taking out their frustrations on innocent people, expressing hatred for everything from the Far East. And speaking of Communism, Russia is being tarred with the same brush.
