The Keepers of the DAwn: Sirius & Venus
Both Sirius and Venus are emerging from the Solar Light, and rising just before dawn on the eastern horizon. Sirius rises first, and is further south of east on the horizon line. You will see the distinctive constellation Orion above. The belt stars of Orion act like a pointer line to Sirius, below the 3 star belt and cloudy nebula. Venus is brighter, and rises close to due east. It is visible for longer as well, being brighter.
When a star is close in the sky to the sun, we are not able to view it. When it moves out of the light sphere of the sunlight, and we can see it rising on its own again before dawn we are witnessing the Heliacal Rising. This revelation moment, the Heliacal Rising, is an age old important noted time by sky watchers. In Ancient sky watching cultures (which is all ancient cultures) the heliacal rising of stars was used a marker of time and a way to seat seasonal and annual calendars. The ancient sky watchers and shamans were the ones who guided and informed the people of the important dates and were "keepers" of the calendars, set by the skies. An important role would be the Keepers of the Dawn - to awake in the darkness and watch the skies. A clear open vista to an eastern horizon line was a precious potent important point of observation. Many a sacred site included a observatory temple space and often stone structure monuments to accentuate and highlight these celestial body rising - stars and planets, sun and moon risings.
Modern devices (calendars, moon charts, observatories) have made the role of rising and watching somewhat redundant. We can use the phones in our pockets to connect with many charts and data sets. The task of being the Watcher, the Keeper of the Dawn is less critical to village life and has largely faded. Yet, so many of us are remembering and re-awakening our innate skillsets as Celestial Shamans.
Many of us have this sky watcher tendencies encoded in our being. Where we feel the call to rise as Keepers of the Dawn. It is truly why some of these traditions of waking and connecting in the cosmos have permeated so many sacred practices and rituals. Because this time of the day has a potent opening or gateway quality which is precious and pure. the light that shines as day breaks is called brahmamuhurtha, the ambrosial hours, the amrit vela, the nectar of the gods, the honey of immortality. A similar ambrosial gateway exists at sunset.
As modern day Celestial Shamans, we rise at this hour for the love, the light, the joy of it. To connect with the cosmos. To receive inspiration and illumination. To uplift the soul!
In early September, The Keepers of the Dawn are graced with TWO important celestial bodies rising before dawn. Sirius and Venus. Both became potentially visible mid/late August. This visibility depends on your location, both longitude placement and sightline specific, as well as clear sky and weather influenced.
My region has been blessed with much moisture this summer, which includes copious cloud cover. I myself got my first clear glimpse of these celestial light beauties on September 1.
The pictures above I took on that special first sighting morning.
September 3 is of note as Venus & Sirius Cosmic Rising. Cosmic Rising is when two celestial bodes rise together. Venus completes a period of retrograde motion, and turns direct on September 3, so like a pendulum swing, that Venus turn direct point is as close as these two (Venus & Sirius) get together in the sky.
These two Celestial Beauties will grace our low east horizon early morning skies for the first few weeks of September. Get up early to catch a glimpse. This week Venus is rising around 4:20 am. Venus is brighter. Take note of Procyon, which triangulates between them. Use the pointer stars of Orion's Belt to track your way to Sirius. Venus in her diamond light will be obvious. Procyon is between them.

2023 Celestial Alignments
The Dog Days of Summer (Northern Hemisphere)
CYCLES OF SIRIUS
Sirius, the twinkling bright disco ball star is prominent in the winter evening northern hemisphere sky, It dips lower and lower every night of spring, until it begins to join the sun, rendering it "invisible" to us, as it comes close to the sun in the daytime sky. We are in that part of the cycle now, Sirius is a "daytime star" - and thereby not visible to us humans here on earth.
The last time we can see Sirius, low in the western sky just after sunset is early/mid May. This last time you can see a star (or planet) in the twighlight sky is called the Heliacal Setting. Heliacal means "near the sun". The date varies by your latitude - and for the whole globe it is Mid May this year. At my 42 degrees, this year it was around May 3-5.
Other poignant Celestial Stargate of note are the Cosmic Setting and Cosmic Rising. This is when two celestial bodies set or rise at the same time. On August 4, 2023 - The Sun & Sirius rise together !! (the day I am writing this blog). The Sun & Sirius set together May 28, 2023.
Heliacal Rising is the moment we can see a celestial body (star/planet) rise just before sunrise on the eastern horizon. Just like the setting - this is subjective to your location and vistas - and most of the globe sees them within a week of each other. In 2023 - the Heliacal rising of Sirius takes place during the window of August 14-17 ish. For my location, i have my target date of August 16 to being to look. While some of this can be "predicted" it is a real time moment, you being awake and looking at a clear line of eastern horizon - and weather and could cover and such. It is a sacred special moment of connection right to the Star itself.
This year - we have another celestial light player - the bright planet Venus - adding in the cosmic dance party.
Venus is with the sun in the sky now too - and conjuncts close on August 13. The Sun, New Moon & Venus rise together (Cosmic Rising) on August 16.
The early mornings before dawn through the end of August - we will be able to see BOTH Sirius & Venus low on the eastern horizon (and higher every day) - a very special celestial treat!
Cross Quarter Aug 1 Full Moon Takes us Into the Leo Gateway
CROSS QUARTER AUG 1 FULL MOON TAKES US INTO THE LEO GATEWAY
I went out to watch the moon rise last night...and the orange pinky salmon glow of the Lunar Disc and the sky had me looking at the solar and lunar alignments for this Full Moon. Every Full Moon creates an "opposition alignment gateway" where one celestial body rises as another sets. Moon Rises in the East as Sun sets in the west plays out every full moon evening. On this moon, the horizon rising spot was well south of east (a natural part of the Lunar Standstill Cylcle alignment fluctuations).
Finding the moon so far South of East, coupled with seeing many cardinals (the red birds) pinged me to pay attention to the cardinal directions - and the seasonal cross quarter point - the "southwest" qualities of the seasonal marker as we tip from high solstice to halfway point to equinox. Tipping point!
That very south of east rise of this "out of bounds" moon had me looking at my sky charts, and looking what other celestial players were up in the sky with the Sun & Moon.
The Moon had Pluto nearby. And the Sun was just leaving the Beehive cluster in Cancer, and moving towards Leo the Lion.
What came through was the trinity of Venus Mars and Mercury, and recall of the transmission I received from these planets during the August 2021 Gateway - and the "Embodiment of the Lion" as Head Heart Core. We are here again, sun poised to enter the Mouth/Head/Skull of the Lion and the Lion's Gateway.
Here is an excerpt from my article in 2021....perfect for our now...
This summer, the light codes are speaking to me about...
The Embodiment of the Lion
HEAD, HEART, & CORE
There are three seats of awareness, 3 power centers for us as humans.
The thought field, The mind field.
The head is a busy place. It acts as both a receiver and projector.
Its fabulous function is to to scan for info, to collect info, to organize info, and to project information back out.
Head rules SOUND & SIGHT
As far as vantage points and inputs placed on the head, it a multi sensory area. Mouth, Ears produce and receive sounds. Eyes receive light, depth and color...sight.
Heart rules your energy flow. Your magnetic. Your electro-magnetic field.
Your heart rules emotion.
E- motion...energy in motion.
The flow of your emotions resembles electricity flow.
And this flow induces a magnetic field, which is shaped like a torus.
Your heart magnet is programable, and can be set to attract what you want directly to you.
Merged state of ONEness
Where you are centered in your inner power, quiet and calm. Steady and Strong.
The home, the residence, the temple of your soul.
Your source of inner knowing, your gut.
Working with Solar Zodiac Gateways
We use zodiac constellations as markers to define and “section” the sky as the sun moves on its path across the sky. The Sun’s path Is called the Ecliptic. Along the ecliptic are 12 Constellations – that we call the Zodiac. Anyone who has dabbled in astrology will be familiar with their names…Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Each constellation has its own boundaries (like a city or town) on the landscape of the night sky. Just like you drive by an “Entering Grafton” sign when you drive into town, there are divisional markers that act like Zodiac Gateways along the sun’s ecliptic path. In one Solar Year, the Sun passes through them all, returning around the circle to the beginning again.
Every June, July & August, the Sun passes through the Solar Zodiac Gateways of the Cancer and Leo constellations. The constellation Cancer is home of the Beehive Cluster, and this is its own Gateway, preceding the Leo The Lion’s Gateway. The Sun crosses over into Leo on August 11, 2023.
During the Lion Gateway of 2021 – we had the triad of The Lion’s Roar – Head Heart Core content come through strong. During this gateway I identified three sectors of the Lion Energy – that define and distinguish the Leo zones HEAD HEART AND CORE. I chose marker stars in Leo – that are close to the ecliptic (Sun’s path) and also close to the depiction of these areas of the Lion shape drawn by the stars. We have demarked:
Head/Skull Leo Star – 8 Leonis
Heart of the Lion – Regulus (Alpha Leonis)
Core Leo Star – Rho Leonis (ρ Leonis)
Star Fact Corner:
You can read more about these stars here – I chose these beauties, you are to play with this and make it yours! Regulus is a well know, bright “popular” star, and folks are well acquainted with this associated with the Leo the Lion Heart. The other two were selected for their location and ecliptic proximity, they are not very bright or visible without a scope.
THE LION'S ROAR: HEAD HEART CORE
There is a corridor or gateway of astronomical alignments that take place in the constellation of LEO the LION. The celestial bodies involved this year are the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars and Mercury. The chart below outlines the many alignments that take place over the July/August gateway. It could be interesting to note or chart for yourself how each of these stargate alignments impacts your own field.
For example, Mars in the Lion Core on July 20 had many of us experiencing both power surges and belly/gut "stuff". The alignments with Regulus, the heart of the Lion, are always impactful.
We grow a lion's courage in our heart space. And our inner planetary gateways.
The head of the lion is near the star 8 Leonis
The heart of the lion is the star Regulus
The core of the lion is near the star rho Leonis
UNLOCKING THE KEYS FROM THE SKY TABLET OF TAL-QADI
THE GOLDEN GATE OF THE ECLIPTIC
Unlocking the KEYS from the SKY TABLET OF TAL-QADI
My ancestors are from Malta (my birth name is Bonnici). The temples on Malta have been calling me very loud for many years. I feel like my natural proclivity for sound codes come from this lineage and DNA line of mine. One Maltese Temple in particular started projecting codes my way and calling to me super duper loud during this Mars Pleiades gateway. Tal Qadi Temple. In the ruins and wreckage of this ancient star temple was found an etched stone, that is thought to be a star map. This stone is considered by some to be the oldest astronomical tool or sky map, dated around 4,000 BC.
The Golden Gate of the Ecliptic is an asterism (recognizable grouping of stars) in the constellation Taurus that has been known for several thousand years. The constellation is built by the two eye-catching open star clusters of the Pleiades and the Hyades that form the two posts of a virtual gate at the two sides of the ecliptic line.
Since all planets as well as the moon and the sun always move very closely along the virtual circle of the ecliptic, all these seven orbiting bodies are regularly passing through the Golden Gate of the Ecliptic.
I draw your attention today to this GOLDEN STAR GATE. This stargate has held great significance for humanity since ancient times. It is a section of the night sky that calls loudly to many of us, the Sirius, Orion, Aldebaran, Hyades, Pleiades region.
Uncovered on the Island of Malta in excavations of 1927 was an etched limestone tablet. Now known as The Sky Tablet of Tal-Qadi, this tablet is an ancient star map and astronomy tool. Used around 4000 BC, this sky map/tablet shows us the passage of the Sun, Moon and the five visible planets through the Golden Gate.
The Golden Gate of The Ecliptic also serves as a moon “observatory”. As the Moon passes through the gate over the year, it moves through its various phases. In fact, if you watch the moon pass through this gate through the 12 months of the year, it will highlight and showcase the progression of the moon through its phases. I continue researching on the building of stone archeoastronomy calendars and tracking of Lunar Standstills and how our ancestors used this gate as a marker to design these lunar calendar sites.
There is a correlation between Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, Pilot Mountain, North Carolina and this temple on Malta. All three sites sit around the 36th longitude parallel. They all hold some crystalline coding along this parallel, and there is a correlation between the astronomical observation point of the Tal-Qadi temple on Malta, and the astronomical alignment stones set to mark the lunar standstill cycles in Chaco Canyon.
Good Sources and Further Reading:
The Pleiades, or “Seven Sisters” is a star cluster of hundreds of stars that has captured humankind attention since ancient days. Because of where it sits on the ecliptic, it is visible for much of the year. The brightest 7-9 brightest members of this star family trace out what looks like a "little dipper" - seen best through binoculars or telescope.
When the sun moves into the constellation Taurus every spring, the Pleiades become invisible to us on earth, as the stars are lost from sight into the glare of the sun - in conjunction. The stars rise and set with the sun like this for about a month (30-40 days). The last evening where you can see the Pleiades setting in the twilight darkening sky is called the heliacal setting. Similarly, the morning that the Pleiades are visible rising in the morning sky is the heliacal rising. (Helios = Sun, heliacal = with the sun).
These stars are now conjuncting, or lining up with, the sun in the sky. That means, that the sun gets a “boost” of light from these stars, and that the light coming to earth from the sun also contains light and codes from this star cluster. Energetically during this time the Pleiades star are merged and delivered on and with the Rays of the Sun.
Those of us that work with, anchor and conduct light and light codes onto planet earth, know that this time of sun aligned with celestial body is an extra special potent time to work with the information and light codes from the stars.
The Pleiades with Sun Gateway runs from early/mid May until early/mid June.
It varies slightly depending where on earth you observe from, and your local surrounding matter too - light levels and landscape factor in. Here at my longitude and latitude the period of Sun and Pleiades alignment in the sky began this week, around May 13 and runs through early June, when the Pleiades rises before dawn and becomes visible again.
We are here in the Pleiades Gateway Now
Drink it in, rise up to meet it, pay attention to the messages. It is a potent time!
The Sun moved into the Taurus Constellation on Monday May 15 - and will flow along the section of the sky demarked as Taurus the Bull. Within Taurus, is a Gateway, very recognizable in the sky. The Golden Gate between the Pleiades & Hyades Star Clusters.
May 18 - Moon Conjuncts Uranus - Sun enters Pleiades Gateway
May 19 - New Moon & Sun with the Pleiades - Sun & Moon within the Golden Gate
May 20 - Sun inches closer to Pleiades, dark Moon visits horns of the Bull of Taurus
May 21 ~ Sun with the Seven Sisters ~ Sun Conjunct Pleiades
May 22 - Sun Conjuncts Pleiades ~ Crescent Moon near Venus
May 23 - Sun with Star Mother, Earth Father: Pleione & Atlas
May 24 - Sun in The Golden Gate of the Ecliptic: Between The Pleiades & Hyades
May 25 - Sun with Hyades & Aldebaran
OCEAN MIGRATION, CETUS CELESTIAL GATEWAY, WHALE SONG SOLAR ECLIPSE
Whales, Whales, Whales Whales
Why are we all seeing whales?
Multidimensional Reasons abound!
Let’s explore 3 of these multi-d influences….
OCEAN MIGRATION, CETUS CELESTIAL GATEWAY, WHALE SONG SOLAR ECLIPSE
Whales are returning to our shores, in their migration patterns northward for summer feeding grounds. Whales are on the MOVE!
In my area, we are blessed to have the Right Whales return to our shores in April. They come to feed and frolic in our beloved Cape Cod Bay – a safe haven- comparatively to open ocean - and a great spring spot for Momma Baby whale pairs. With less than 400 of these beings left in our oceans, each pair is a treasure!
CETUS CELESTIAL GATEWAY
CETUS – The Whale Constellation
The Sun is passing along the back of Cetus, the Whale Constellation right now. CETUS, the Whale, also referend to as sea monster or sea serpent, and is also known as the Dragon Fish. It is located on the Celestial Equator, adjacent to Pisces. Because the ecliptic (line of the zodiac) and the celestial equator are so close together near the equinox point – many planets and often the moon do move through Cetus. The sun grazes across the boundary line, as if it is riding the back of the whale!
We bring special awareness to Cetus A/Messier 77 - a huge player in the Cetus Constellation. A barred spiral galaxy, like our Milky Way. Of major “note” Cetus A has an active galactic nucleus (AGN), and is a strong source of radio emissions. Not all galaxies do this, so this one is “broadcasting”. A galaxy that is “turned on” and broadcasting from its center, emits a huge jet that travel deep and far into intergalactic space. If we (earth) are facing this jet, we are on the receiving end of the signal, and then these AGN are called radio galaxies, quasars or blazars.
There is a strong link here, the emitting active galaxies and the whale song.
Even portrayed and coded for us in the Star Trek movie, The Voyage Home.
Maybe the whales, in addition to all they do for us here on earth, are singing and communicating with distant galaxies.
Whales awaken for us our own ability to “sing our soul song”. The broadcast our signals HOME – to our star systems of origin. Thank you whales, we LOVE you so!!!!
WHALE SONG SOLAR ECLIPSE
WHALE ENCODED SOLAR ECLIPSE IN THE CETUS GATEWAY
Solar Eclipse on April 19/20 – Eclipse peaks at 12:12 am EST on April 20
12:12 is quite an auspicious time marker! 12:12 on 4/20
The position of the Sun and Moon when they meet in the sky and the moon eclipses the sun is right near the throat of Cetus and M77 - CETUS A. Cetus, the Whale or Sea Dragon Constellation contains a barred spiral galaxy. This Galaxy (M77) is a strong radio source. It broadcasts massive codes from its supermassive black hole. This Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN), positioned like it is in the throat of Cetus, codes like WHALE SONG.
This eclipse is going to be an amazing opportunity to SING YOUR CREATION SONG.
What kind of life, what kind of world do YOU want to sing and speak into creation??
ARCHANGEL METATRON VIA JAMES TYBERONN @ EARTH-KEEPER
The Pineal & Crystal Bio StarThe Pineal & Crystal Bio Stargategate
Archangel Metatron – The Pineal & Crystal Bio Stargate
Mechanics of Law of Belief
Archangel Metatron via James Tyberonn May 2012
I am Metatron Lord of Light, and I greet you in Unconditional Love.
In this gathering, we discuss a fine aspect of Conscious Creation, the Law and mechanics of manifestation. We speak of the Bio-Crystal Stargate computer: the Pineal.
Through the ages it has been known that the Pineal is the interface between the higher dimensions and the physical realm. It can be said then to be the gateway between the ego personality, brain and the Divine Mind. It has been termed by metaphysicians such as Descartes and Edgar Cayce as being the ‘Seat of the Soul’. In a very real manner of speaking, the Pineal Gland is a ‘Bio-Stargate’. It is a bridge from physical to non-physical, from duality to higher dimension. It is extremely complex and it is the screen from 3d brain to Infinite Mind.
The pineal is the agent of advancing knowing into reality manifestation. The pineal works with the pituitary to open the bridge, the gateway between the physical and nonphysical, between brain and mind. Whatever knowledge you allow yourself to believe can only become a reality by the pineal first opening the gate to the Divine. It does this by interpreting the frequency of thought into a thermal bio chemical electrical current throughout your body and opening to mind.
Your human brain transforms the thoughts you generate into thousands of bio-chemicals every second. Not every thought of the ordinary brain reaches into Higher Mind, as we have explained.
Crystalline Pineal Filter
The issue most humans have in not changing their beliefs is blind acceptance of mental 3d programming. You can think positive thoughts, think positive change, but if in your deeper mind you doubt they will occur, then they will not.
Every emotion you feel, very moment of joy and fear produces a chemical enzyme in your body. Some become springboards, others as obstructions. Each passes to the Pineal. The Pineal is a finely tuned calcitic crystal that is piezoelectric, somewhat in the manner of quartz. It is a frequency screen, a filter of sorts.
According to the frequency of a thought or emotion, the Pineal is the guardian of what goes into the creative portal of Divine Mind. This is in a very functional manner, a protection mechanism that prevents some negative thoughts from being manifested. But it also prevents any thought that has a negative field from entering. Negative thoughts including fear, doubt and the like. But understand it works both ways. Accordingly any intent that you strongly or subtly doubt, cannot enter into belief programming. Do you understand?
Doubt is one blockage that prevents manifestation of your desires. If you doubt, you do not believe. Doubt in the brain creates a bio-chemical reaction. It activates a neuron carrier in the brain that flows from the Pituitary gland to the Pineal and blocks the ‘gateway’ (Pineal entry) from opening. The doubt is there because you do not believe.
As we have mentioned, the survival aspect programming of the Personality Ego brain utilizes ‘fear’ in duality as a warning system. However, the duality aspect, the double edge of that sword, is that fear out of context can reach into many negative emotions including depression,doubt, hatred, jealousy and self contempt. These are at their root, negative aspects of fear, and fear creates static in the auric field, and can lead to auric bleeding. As taught in the Metatronic Keys, the human Aura must be integral to amplify into Mer-Ka-Na. A fissured or disrupted energy field is unable to optimally operate in the Law of Creation.
The belief thought-images that surround you are co-created in mass fields by all of humanity in agreement in the macro. Individually they are projected according to your light quotient. These manifest into physical reality.
This involves a physical process. Thought frequencies are digitally received and are immediately propelled bio-chemically within the brain.
Mental enzymes are connected with the pineal gland. The Pineal gland receives them as geo-coded transmissions. Each image, each thought, being interpreted and sorted according to its energetic signature. They must pass through the program parameter of belief after reception at the pineal. Your brain screens what is determined as real or unreal. Believable or unbelievable according to the light quotient programmed into the brain. The bio-chemicals produced are produced with acceptance ingredient or rejection ingredient. These are allowed to open or close the gate to higher mind accordingly.
These bio chemicals are sent as coded neurons, and are the delivery mechanism of this thought-energy, containing all the codified data necessary for translating any thought or image into physical actuality, or not.
Thoughts that are congruent with belief move to reproduce the inner image within the brain and through each nerve fiber of the body physical. These then are the initial fires of gestation for forming the new reality.
The next step is through clear mind intent, the force of will, will driven by the acceleration of emotion and feeling.
This done, the physical body releases the objective in a digital code to the sublime body, the intact Auric Field in a semi solid, congealed light code, projected and accelerated from the chakric system.
The Aura must be intact and optimal in 13-20-33 cycle and reach. It then passes through the Mer-Ki-Va to Mer-Ka-Va to Mer-Ka-Na field. All propelled by will. The clarity and intensity you insert behind the thought-desire or goal determines to a great degree the immediacy of its materialization. Once you learn the mechanics of conscious creation it is essential then to utilize the engine of genuine desire with image visualization and emotion to complete the process of physical manifestation.
The Law of Conscious Creation
There is no physical object about you, nor any experience in your life that you have not created. This includes your physical form, your body. Masters, there is nothing about your own physical image that you have not made. In fact if you were able to view self in other life sojourns, you would be surprised at how many similar physical characteristics you create in what would be termed sequential lifetimes.
When you have Divine Wisdom, you can create kingdoms unlimited. When you have knowledge, there is nothing to fear, for then there is no thing, no element, no principality, no understanding that can ever threaten or enslave or intimidate you. When fear is given knowledge, it is called enlightenment.
You have a natural rhythm of existing in the physical and non physical. It is your waking and sleep state. Dreams are one of your greatest natural therapies and assets as connectors between the interior and exterior realities and universes.
Your normal consciousness benefits by excursions and rest in those other fields of nonphysical actuality that are entered when you sleep, and the so-called sleeping consciousness will also benefit by frequent excursions into the physical matter waking state.
But let us tell you that the imagery you see in both is at its base, mental interpretations of digital frequential fields of core consciousness units. The frequency that your brain receives is actually a digital code, a crystalline pattern of symbols ( akin to what you may term as X’s and O’s), that you interpret and translate into images and feelings.
It is not so difficult for you to accept that you create your dreams, as it is to accept that you also create your physical reality, but you do both. You also determine if both or either are real…or not.
We say again…doubt and fear are two major blockage frequencies that prevent manifestation of your desires. In an very real sense, all negative emotions are at primal core, fear based. Overcoming fear, and replacing it with LOVE, particularly true acceptance and love of self, is a key frequency needed to Master duality. The Pineal is the system of entry into divine, and it is a complex crystalline computer that screens frequencies. This is the forgotten information. It is time to remember, time to know. It is 2012. Shadow is being removed.
I am Metatron and I share with you these Truths. You are Beloved.
…And So it is…And it is So…

VENUS & THE POWER OF EIGHT: Seed Of Life
Venus and the Power of 8: Seed of Life
Many ancient cultures were amazed by the dance of Venus in the morning and evening skies. This dance served as a calendar. The predictable lengths of days and the cyclic nature of the patterns provided a glimpse into the interconnectedness of all life. These primal forces of nature were revered or “worshiped” most of all as a direct insight into the deeper meaning and codes of life.
Venus is an inferior planet – meaning its orbit is within the earth’s orbit, closer to the sun. This position makes Venus dance with the sun as it moves across our sky, and flips between a position of being a Morning Star and Evening Star.
We are now at a turning point of one of these cycle rhythms this week. Venus makes a superior conjunction with the Sun on October 22, 2022 (and parts of globe on Oct 23).
Venus slipped out of the morning sky in early September and has been lost from our view in the glare of the sun since. A planetary conjunction occurs when two celestial bodies station at the same spot in our sky. Before and after this exact conjunction is a window of moving into and out of that sky spot. Venus is at its farthest from earth on the other side of the sun, so this conjunction is called superior, as in the sun will be in between us and Venus during our current cycle moment.
Venus Dances in Cycles of Eight
Venus is encoded with the number EIGHT. We will explore two primary codes of 8 here,
the Venus Eight Year Orbital Cycle and the Eight Pointed Star.
Venus Eight Year Orbital Cycle
As Venus dances within the solar system, do-sey doe-ing around planet partners, like Earth and Sun, it traces patterns and forms geometries.
One of Venus’s dance move orbits is around the sun in a cycle that completes in eight years. This is a super fun rich topic to explore, may this introduction here spark you to explore this further.
Earth Sky Article:
“What is the pentagram or petals of Venus? When plotted geocentrically – from an Earth-centered perspective – there is a highly noticeable rhythm in the motion of Venus. After eight years, it returns to the same place in our sky on about the same date. This is known as the eight-year cycle of Venus, and stems from the fact that 13 Venusian orbits (8 x 224.8 days) very nearly equals eight Earth years. The cycle was known to, and of great interest to, ancient peoples such as the Maya. Today, many know it as the pentagram or petals of Venus.”
'This illustration shows what’s called the 5 petals of Venus. It shows a simplified geocentric – Earth-centered – plot of the orbit of Venus over 8 years, from 2016 to 2023.
You can read further about it here at: https://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/five-petals-of-venus/
Eight Pointed Star
Another way that 8 is encoded with Venus is the Eight-Pointed Star. Depicted in imagery in ancient artworks, we see Inanna & Ishtar with this symbol. This Symbol, this geometry shows up across cultures and ages – as a compass rose, in many stone carvings and artworks.
Morning Star “Gives Birth” to Evening Star
A Venus Cycle begins with Venus as a prominent evening star. It begins a period of retrograde motion that lasts for about 40 days, the midpoint a conjunction with the sun. It sets closer and closer to sunset until it joins the sun in the sky and becomes invisible to us for a period of 8 days. During this transformative 8 days in the dark primal creation field of the underworld, Venus makes a shift from evening to morning star. When seen again on the eastern horizon at dawn, she is rebirthed as The Cosmic Divine Mother aspect. For 9 months Venus rises before the Sun in her morning star phase. During this part of the cycle, we can consider her in Dawn Star Mother Mode. Gestating Life within. Note that the length of time of this phase of the Venus cycle correlates to the length of time of human gestation. In the process, you may become “impregnated” with new visions and giving you a chance to bring them to life and to light!
Venus has been a morning star this year since it emerged from its inferior solar conjunction on January 8/9. Venus was visible again in mid/late January. If you gaze back at December and January, what has slowly grown in your creation space? Have you birthed new projects, new relationships, new ways of being within?
MERKABAH – MULTIDIMENSIONAL EIGHT POINTED STAR
Point your attention to this EIGHT POINTED STAR
Here it sits flat on the page, the eight points plotted on the paper surface.
If you allow this star to expand up out of the page into three dimensions – watch it form into an eight pointed star, also called the Star Tetrahedron. One of the platonic solids, and an impactful sacred geometry. These two interlocking tetrahedrons overlap and merge and crystalize into eight points of light.
This geometry is also known as the
MERKABA ~which has eight points~ and the
SEED OF LIFE ~ which is the stage of the Human Embryo with 8 cells.
During the conception, once sperm has met egg, and the cells merge and start to divide, we have two, then four and then eight. This point of eight cells is said to be the Soul Flash point, when the Merkabah (mer = soul, ka = light, bah = body). You become YOU at this moment. And what you are in this moment, cellularly, is a star.
A light being in the form of Platonic solid. A Seed of Life.
Your Merkabah ~ Your Light Body Vehicle ~ Your Star Body is Born
