The 1600 BC. Nebra Sky Disk found near Nebra, Saxony-Anhalt in Germany is a 30 cm in diameter bronze blue green disk with gold symbols. The symbols include the Pleiades star cluster between the Sun and Lunar Crescent suggesting this disk was a time gauge oriented to the Pleiades rising and setting alerting this ancient culture to the changing weather patterns that affect the time to plant and harvest.
There are aspects of the disk that are oriented to the seasonal cycles of the Sun tracking Solstices at 82 degrees North Latitude exactly where the disk was found. This is a great 10 minute YouTube about the disk.
Uranus (22 Pisces 42) stations direct today energizing yet another assemblage point shift that may result in unexpected occurrences. For those who have planets or angles between 22 and 27 degrees Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Gemini this represents a shift in your current Uranus initiation cycle signaling the ending phase of the cycle. Uranus will return to 26 Pisces 40 next year so if you have a planet or angle in the above signs near this degree your initiation cycle will continue into next year. Expect the unexpected as this is a time for a grand cosmic shift in reality designed to encompass a greater celestial perspective from this middle world vantage point.
Also Venus moves into Sagittarius late tonight or early tomorrow morning depending on your time zone traveling through this domain until December 25 seeking out greater truth and meaning as the Queen of Heaven is now disappearing from the morning sky.
Plus late tonight or early tomorrow morning (depending on your time zone) is the Gemini Full Moon (10 Gemini 15) exactly conjunct Aldebaran, the eye of the Bull. This star marked the Spring Equinox about 5,000 years ago when Antares marked the Autumnal Equinox. This is because these stars are opposite of each other in the sky forming a stargate axis near the Galactic Center and the Galactic Edge providing direct access to the power and potency located along Galactic Plane. The Sun is conjunct Antares and the Moon is conjunct Aldebaran in this Full Moon window activating these stargate stars.
Dec 02, Wednesday. The Gemini Trickster Full Moon energy is still in effect as the Full Moon rises just before 6 pm local time. We are being reminded to NOT to take ourselves too seriously while also taking time to creatively find ways to have fun. If what you are doing is not fun, is there a way to make it fun? Or is there a way to do something else, make a different choice, take a risk, and courageously leap into a new experience. What do you really have to lose?
Venus descends into the underworld and prepares to pass 5 degrees N of Antares on December 9. Venus is disappearing from the morning sky and will travel with the Sun for the next 70 days or so meaning it is not visible in either the morning or evening sky. This equates to an underworld initiation for Venus where she dies to who she was and is being reborn again in late February as described in the cosmological telling of Inanna.
Underworld initiations are an otherworldly experience designed to take a person beyond their ordinary reality. This underworld (or otherworld) quest includes discovering new possibilities, new truths, and new ways of experiencing the realm of spirit. In many myths the underworld realm is the place of great treasures and riches that are accessed through the courage and strength required to face our fears.
This Full Moon window is activating the Antares/Aldebaran stargate with the Sun near Antares and the Moon near Aldebaran. Each year around this time the Sun passes by Antares. This means the Sun is in the magical six-degree window of this Behenian Star from November 26 to December 9 illuminating the energies from this area of the sky. This year Venus travels within 6 degrees of Antares from December 4 – 14. Meanwhile neither Venus nor Antares are visible due to their proximity to the light of the Sun. However, the Sun is a doorway, meaning we can attune to the mysteries of this star with our hearts and our intention and attention.
Special Venus Information for December 2009. A once in eight year event is occurring this month that the builders of New Grange in Ireland were tracking. According to Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas in their book The Book of Hiriam the builders of New Grange were known as the Grooved Ware people, a Neolithic culture balanced between the masculine and feminine principles honoring both equally. It appears these people had technology that predated the Egyptians and Greeks. New Grange was built to track the Winter Solstice and the once in 8 year heliacal rise of Venus near the Winter Solstice when Venus rises about a half hour before the Sun. This is happening at sunrise for most of this month with the Winter Solstice at the center point of this event.
At New Grange, the long dark passage that leads to a special altar is lit annually by the Winter Solstice Sun precisely for three days, although the Sun is near the alignment for a couple of weeks before and after the Solstice. Every 8 years, near the December Solstice, Venus rises before the Sun lighting up the main altar. Then the altar goes dark and a short time later (about 20 to 30 minutes) the Sun rises relighting this sacred area. This was so important to these ancient people they took the time and energy to build this site to accurately capture these cosmological events. The building expertise needed to build New Grange with such precision is interestingly beyond our current technical ability.
Part of the work of Shamanic Astrology at this time is to reconnect with the Venus cycle, honoring and remembering how this cycle informs our experience. Each of us is born in a particular phase of the Venus Cycle and we all experience a Synodic Venus return every 8 years. This means that Venus returns to her original position near your birthday with the Sun at ages 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80, 88, 96, 104. We have found that the Venus Return is one of the most significant cycles a person goes through especially when working consciously with it. This means if you are turning one of the above ages between April 3, 2009 and November 4, 2010 you are in your synodic Venus return cycle and this month is especially significant in regard to your personal Venus initiation.
