New Moon in Sagittarius Wheels within Wheels


Wheels Within Wheels

 

“And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself, and a brightness was all around it, and radiating out of its mist like the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. 6 Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the soles of calves’ feet. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze. 8 The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings. 9 Their wings touched one another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward.

10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Thus were their faces.

 (This is the fixed cross in astrology: the angel of man which is Aquarius, Lion/Leo, Ox/Taurus, Eagle/Scorpio, respectively) Insert.

Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies. 12 And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went.

 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning. 14 And the living creatures ran back and forth, in appearance like a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on the earth beside each living creature with its four faces. 16 The appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of beryl, and all four had the same likeness. The appearance of their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. 17 When they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they went. 18 As for their rims, they were so high they were awesome; and their rims were full of eyes, all around the four of them. 19 When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went; and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures[c] was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures[d] was in the wheels.

 22 The likeness of the firmament above the heads of the living creatures[e] was like the color of an awesome crystal, stretched out over their heads. 23 And under the firmament their wings spread out straight, one toward another. Each one had two which covered one side, and each one had two which covered the other side of the body. 24 When they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters, like the voice of the Almighty, a tumult like the noise of an army; and when they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 A voice came from above the firmament that was over their heads; whenever they stood, they let down their wings.” ~excerpt from Exekiel’s vision

Now, back to where I wanted to take you: Ezekiel's famous vision of the Divine Throne above the Four Living Creatures with their "wheels within wheels" is astrologically symbolical, it is a treatise on the harnessing of the spirit of the four directions, the elements considered as ‘whirlwind/air/Aquarius, lighting/fire as Leo, noise of many waters from wings/Eagle Scorpio firmament above the heads of the living creatures[e] was like the color of an awesome crystal/earth which is Taurus.  EL-ement as I have stated before is the combination of EL or the God of the Judaeo Christian bible and the root of: El-ohim, El-ite, El-ect, and as suffix to Micha-El, Gabri-El, Rapha-El, Ari-El, Ang-El, etc.  Here in the word El-ement, we have God-mind, or The mind.  The mind of God, or the God-head that contains all thought and all elements/directions, etc.

In the dreaming from the formless, comes wheels within wheels and the four directions.

In the heart of the four directions, is the compass point, or compass-ION; which is the heart of it all, and THE WAY.

We can also consider ‘the noise of many waters’ as the sea of people generated and birthed in waters, as water represents the doorway between dimensions/daemons-IONS.
We can think of a ships berth, or the amniotic sac that breaks and birth's the new baby into this world.
"like the voice of the Almighty" ~Everything is in THE WORD.  FIRST, THERE WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD.

When we add to this, EL (from Element) is Saturn, Lord of the rings, the last of the visible planets, and as Cronus (Gaia’s son with Uranus) (Kronos in Greek), the youngest of the Titans, He agreed to help Gaia who was grieved that Uranus wanted to keep her children caged up deep inside her belly/bowels and she gave Cronus a sickle;Cronus ambushed Uranus and cut off his genitals with Gaia's sickle.

He refers to them as inseparable "wheel in the middle of a wheel" providing the continuity and connectedness of all things created out of the formless, they were intertwined as one for "their wings were joined one to another" (Ezek 1:9).

 




So let us continue with this vision of Ezekiel’s, because we will see how he also refers to these four guardians as the Cherubim...

      
Ezekiel 10
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Glory Departs from the Temple

10 And I looked, and there in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubim, there appeared something like a sapphire stone, having the appearance of the likeness of a throne. 2 Then He spoke to the man clothed with linen, and said, “Go in among the wheels, under the cherub, fill your hands with coals of fire from among the cherubim, and scatter them over the city.” And he went in as I watched.
3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the temple[a] when the man went in, and the cloud filled the inner court. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and paused over the threshold of the temple; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord’s glory. 5 And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard even in the outer court, like the voice of Almighty God when He speaks.

6 Then it happened, when He commanded the man clothed in linen, saying, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim,” that he went in and stood beside the wheels. 7 And the cherub stretched out his hand from among the cherubim to the fire that was among the cherubim, and took some of it and put it into the hands of the man clothed with linen, who took it and went out. 8 The cherubim appeared to have the form of a man’s hand under their wings.
9 And when I looked, there were four wheels by the cherubim, one wheel by one cherub and another wheel by each other cherub; the wheels appeared to have the color of a beryl stone. 10 As for their appearance, all four looked alike—as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. 11 When they went, they went toward any of their four directions; they did not turn aside when they went, but followed in the direction the head was facing. They did not turn aside when they went. 12 And their whole body, with their back, their hands, their wings, and the wheels that the four had, were full of eyes all around. 13 As for the wheels, they were called in my hearing, “Wheel.”

14 Each one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, the second face the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. 15 And the cherubim were lifted up. This was the living creature I saw by the River Chebar. 16 When the cherubim went, the wheels went beside them; and when the cherubim lifted their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also did not turn from beside them. 17 When the cherubim[b] stood still, the wheels stood still, and when one[c] was lifted up, the other[d] lifted itself up, for the spirit of the living creature was in them.
18 Then the glory of the Lord departed from the threshold of the temple and stood over the cherubim. 19 And the cherubim lifted their wings and mounted up from the earth in my sight. When they went out, the wheels were beside them; and they stood at the door of the east gate of the Lord’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.



"This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD" (Ezek 1:28)

“And in His image He made them, male and female” ~ Genesis
20 This is the living creature I saw under the God of Israel by the River Chebar, and I knew they were cherubim. 21 Each one had four faces and each one four wings, and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings. 22 And the likeness of their faces was the same as the faces which I had seen by the River Chebar, their appearance and their persons. They each went straight forward.

Now, this image of God on the Throne above the Cherubim first appears in Exodus 25:18-40

Exodus 25:18-40

New King James Version (NKJV)

18 And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat. 19 Make one cherub at one end, and the other cherub at the other end; you shall make the cherubim at the two ends of it of one piece with the mercy seat. 20 And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat. 21 You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you. 22 And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

Now one might ask themselves, why are there only 4 Gospels?

Or, you might wonder why I would bring this entire story up?

Well, it is because it is one of the best ways to explain what is happening.  Where else do we find the Cherubim?  How about in Genesis 3:23
23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

 Right there: “… and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.”

     Ask yourselves, do you feel as though you are trying      to walk through fire?

Because this time is one of the cross-quarters, or the entry into the Age of Aquarius, who we see is one of the four guardians of the gates.  Fire purifies, burns off the dross.

 Dec 13, 2012 New Moon at 3:43AM

We are at the marriage of the sun and the moon again, conjunctiva at 21*of f, this puts us in the last decanate of Sagittarius which is Leo.  Here we have the Sun and the Moon in their alchemical marriage and Leo rules the sun, so this should be an optimistic portal to tap into, though one might want to avoid risk taking, which this decanate can also stimulate.  This can be an adventurous time and of course, we are heading into the much discussed Mayan calendrical date of Dec 21, 2012 (The Winter Solstice) which is why I began and will return to the meaning of this ‘gateway’.  First, let’s continue with the mundane affairs of this new moon:

With the coloured lights and festivity displays lighting our longer days of darkness, we see the spark of the soul glimmering and whispering to us, to listen to the still voice and see the connection to the vast sea of which we are swimming.  Starry nights light up the canopy above us, calling to us to wonder, to journey into the ethers as we anchor and call down the sky.

Mary: What'd you wish, George?

George: Well, not just one wish. A whole hatful, Mary. I know what I'm gonna do tomorrow, and the next day, and the next year, and the year after that. I'm shakin' the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I'm gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I'm comin' back here and go to college and see what they know... And then I'm gonna build things. I'm gonna build airfields, I'm gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I'm gonna build bridges a mile long...








George: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary.

Mary: I'll take it. Then what?

George: Well, then you could swallow it, and it'd all dissolve, see? And the moonbeams'd shoot out of your fingers and your toes, and the ends of your hair... Am I talking too much?” ~George Bailey talking to his future wife Mary, “It’s a Wonderful Life”

 

That is a perfect example of this Sagittarius new moon.

Dreaming big, lassoing the moon and am I talking too much?

 This is all taking place in the 2nd house ruled by Taurus  the bull, (another gateway) possessions, worth, making a living in the mundane world.  So, how will you grow your worth?  What is it you want to expand?  Who do you need to talk to that you perhaps have not really sat down and had a joyous conversation in a long time?

Isn’t this just perfect for the holyday season?  Don’t you just love our glorious creator’s brilliance?

I do.

 With Venus at 26* of Scorpio eand Mercury at 03* Sagittarius f  we have a wide conjunction with this pair too and we see the bridging of Scorpio into Sagittarius as a theme coming up again, so we will see further activation of Scorpio’s truth telling and secrets being revealed to open the mystery.

Oh how nice as we ramp up to our Solstice date!  And Mercury in Sagittarius adds to the loquaciousness of the Sun/Moon marriage so let the merry making begin!  Kids will rock the planet now and take center stage as will animals; particularly horses, will come front and center.  We shall see and hear discussions on saving animals and more ideas about education and investing in schools and teachers (which means, caring about children).

Now, the sun and the moon, they are off by themselves and not aspecting any of the other heavenly spheres, so the major lights will allow the others to have their own fun.

We have Mercury at 3* in trining Uranus which is stationing direct today at 4*of Aries  so they are in support of each other.  While Uranus has been wreaking havoc retrograde and bringing up the static electrical charges infusing them into the atmosphere, we trip over wires, drop things seemingly without a cause or just plain out of clumsiness, as he is electricity and in Aries the Ram or RA, the head of the chart, Uranus wants electrical action, as quick as lightening.  Can you keep up with him?

He (UR-Anus) is still in the square to Pluto, though that has gone wide, Ur will catch up soon enough to form that square again.  So prepare yourselves… The best we can do, is to tap into what is new, the insights flashing onto the canvass in our dreams, exploding in colour and emotion as Neptune who is home in his world of the deep sea of Pisces i at 0* is shimmering on the waters of your mind with the square to Mercury shooting arrows in the Archer, Sagittarius f, there can be nothing but straight shooting, or the quagmire will only become the glass you look through darkly, because Mercury is also opposing Jupiter in Gemini, which Mercury rules.  How dare this small god oppose him and in Hermes house!  The square is wide though, so just enough room to scoot by and make a way, read that writing on the wall while Neptune is flashing lights on the celluloid slumber of your subconscious.   Write down your dreams, to bridge the two hemispheres and marry the pairs of opposites.

Though this could make it harder to explain your dreams, even to yourself.  One must let the mind go like lightening, fast and free until you tame that horse/Neptune the Sea Mare, and harness her insights in the quicksilver Mercury of your mind.

But dream we must.  We also have Ur-Anus in 4*of Aries  sextiling Jupiter at9* of Gemini `and Jupiter is still Retrograde, so that big expansive energy is taking us back, look over your good fortune, how have you been rescued and saved over the years?

What pickle did you get yourself into, which the universe sent in angels to redeem you from?  Still, this is the supportive energy of a sextile, so Jupiter or Thor wants to expand the realm of possibility into the electric universe and catapult us into the way it can be, with all the potential of the seed of the soul; that beam of light that sparked us aglow and into this world.  Tap in, turn into the silence and listen.  Listen and you will hear your heart-song, singing away in wild abandon, joyously dancing on the edge of time, this crossroad that we are finding our way across and into the Great Divide, the Milky Way….Great Mother, Nut.

It’s just that, with Neptune in Pisces i at 0*, she is also squaring Venus, her child of sorts, Neptune is an octave of Venus.  This square is not comfortable, and wants to force the heart into thinking it just cannot dare to dream, there is no sense in believing things will get better.  Recall Jupiter, reminding you of all those times you were rescued.  Of every step you have taken, when the earth has risen up to meet you, to support you.

No wonder the gods fought over gaia, she is radiantly gorgeous! So walk upon her, feel her energy, connect to her.

“22) The Savior said, All nature, all formations, all creatures exist in and with one another, and they will be resolved again into their own roots”

And this: “27) That is why the Good came into your midst, to the essence of every nature in order to restore it to its root.” “31) That is why I said to you, Be of good courage, and if you are discouraged be encouraged in the presence of the different forms of nature.” ~The Gospel of Mary Magdalene

            Here I cannot recommend enough, to have ArcAncient Sleep Angel ™ on hand, to dab on the wrist and take deep breaths.  She will connect you, she will rise up and meet you underfoot and help to stop the spinning world around you, long enough for you to realize, it is all a temporary tumult that wants to steal you away from the jewel that is rising and shining within  you.

As we enter this gateway, of which there are 4 in the cross corners, guarded by the Cherubim… (Oh that’s why I brought all that up!)  The electromagnetic field is shifting, both within and without.  We can feel it in our core, if we are paying attention at all.

We can see it on the world stage, with the super-storms, super politicking, the crazy financial train driving out of control; now we also can see that there is huge energy going back and forth, as the poles shift, in this precessional moment in time, as this wobble increases and we see people going to extremes, weather in extremes and so being centered, as best we can in all of this, will be most important. There is much evidence to support that this is speeding up, that the poles and magnetic north has shifted so much, even Airport runways have had to be remarked in Florida.

In the 26,000 year time frame of the Great year, we have 13,000 and 6.500 years as the quarters (squares and oppositions) that are also the same 4 guardians of Ezekiel's vision.

The last time, we had the great deluge/flood.  That was the age of Taurus the Bull, and we have the worshipping of the bull that Moses asks the people to stop worshipping as they entered the age of Aries.  Previous to that, was the age of Leo, and the lioness on the sphynx.

 

            Precessional movement


The path of the north celestial pole among the stars due to the precession. Vega is the bright star near the bottom

Axial precession is the movement of the rotational axis of an astronomical body, whereby the axis slowly traces out a cone. In the case of Earth, this type of precession is also known as the precession of the equinoxes, lunisolar precession, or precession of the equator. Earth goes through one such complete precessional cycle in a period of approximately 26,000 years or 1° every 72 years, during which the positions of stars will slowly change in both equatorial coordinates and ecliptic longitude. Over this cycle, Earth's north axial pole moves from where it is now, within 1° of Polaris, in a circle around the ecliptic pole, with an angular radius of about 23.5 degrees. ~From Wikipedia

Now, that is lining up with the Galactic Center (27*Sagittarius, see chart)

And that pull, and all of this astrological alignments and aspects we have been through, dredging up our lifetimes, burning off the dross to reveal that shining diamond within us.

To mirror the heavens and the Coming.

Now, for me and as you will see in my upcoming book, this is also mirrored within us, as the marriage, the alchemy of the male and female, shiva and shakti, Mary and Jesus (saviour) within us, but this can only happen through the heart.

So heal we must, realize we must, and rest we must when we can, and don’t…..don’t spend your spirits dry bemoaning what never was and never will be.

Oh by the way, out of the spilled blood/semen of Uranus we have the birth of Venus/Aphrodite.

Uranus' severed genitals fell into the sea and stayed there for a while until white foam started to form around them. Into the sea as it is told in some stories (Neptune) Out of this foam emerged the most beautiful woman in Greek myth: Aphrodite. Here we see the sea shell opened and the rising Aphrodite, the birth of Venus as is so often been painted in classical art. 
Here is Sandro Botticelli’s version:
That beauty is within us, we have to dive deep and find the pearls shining in the dark and dank places we might have tried to avoid inside us, but there she is, waiting to be rescued.  Waiting for us, singing so listen to your heart song, and then sing into the symphony of the universe, as we stands at the gates of Aquarius, Cherubim flashing their flaming swords, lest we try to enter un-tempered, lacking enough integrity to withstand the flames, the fiery Holy Spirit that will descend as a dove.
It is still a birth though, we are birthing a new earth, a new form of us, and it will be dimensional.  Birth comes with birth pains, both for us and for the new earth, as we see the destruction of the old, in large part do to Pluto (death and destruction, but also new birth) in his square to Uranus (ruler of Aquarius, the water bearer and this new age) as they transform what will not last into this new age. 
We shall see more earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, both in the earth and in our own earthly being as our bodies try and hold this powerful energy, and all that was kept buried within us finds an avenue outside of us, for it cannot be kept hidden anymore.
This is also the land of Khem, Khemet or Egypt, the black land or land of the darkness (in part called this because of its rich dark soil from the fertile Nile crescent.) This is also why things are called 'occulted' or from the darkness and hidden.  All mysteries are this way, not ready to be revealed (why Jesus spoke in parables) until the student was ready for the powerful information of truth.    "
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever." ~Gen 3:22
As the sun and the earth are engulfed within the head of the serpent (the Milky Way) on the Solstice point, it will appear as though the serpent is eating its egg, the sun and earth.  After this point, the 'new sun' is born into the Age of Aquarius, the Water Bearer.
"And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in."~Luke 22:10
We must go past the flaming Cherubim, and get birthed into the new earth/sun.
Open the third eye, to have thine eye singular, and seek to find as we must, now more than ever.

Wheels within wheels, want to lasso the moon and bring her down to earth?

Recall this from the vision: "When they went, they went toward any of their four directions; they did not turn aside when they went, but followed in the direction the head was facing" ~
One question you mut ask yourselves, which direction is your head facing?  Which way have you set your sails towards, this is the course you have set for yourself without turning your head aside, focus and move in that direction.
Ready to give birth to your saviour?
