TOPIC: THE END OF THE KALI YUGA - THE BEGINNING OF THE GOLDEN AGE - SATYA YUGA
NOTE: We've written about the Kali Yuga numerous times. It was such a nasty Yuga.
The good news is, the new Yuga is arriving soon.
9-5-12 - DREAM - I don't know what city I was in, but I was
living with my friend Mikki. I knew it was the middle of April, and today
was the first day of the new Yuga.
(Is our calendar that far off?)
We went outside and I looked up at the sky which had high cumulous clouds all
over it, but in a blue sky space between several clouds came cruising slowly a
large white triangular shaped UFO.
A moment later, I saw another triangular shaped UFO coming perpendicular to
the first one, and that one was a bit higher, but was also pure white glinting
in the sunlight.
That was a beautiful sight to behold.
NOTE: The date may rather coincide with the way Easter Sunday is
decided to coincide with the equinox where the moon and sun can be seen in the
sky at the same time and are the same size even though the sun is 400 times the
distance from earth.

Kali, represented in her destructive
(Original Cast Recording of Jekyll and Hyde)
I was told by a 'light being' prior to sleep that I was going to have my buttons pushed in my dreams. I doubted that my dreams could be effected by such a suggestion, or that dreams could be 'implanted' by an outside source. However, I was proved wrong. What is even stranger is that Joe and I dreamed about the same subject at the exact same time from two different aspects. I present the dreams first:
1-1-99 - DREAM - Dee - I cannot remember how the dream started, but I was in a huge building with corridors and I wanted to find a bathroom. I ended up in a room where men were standing by their beds in almost full body casts and I knew I was in the wrong place. I wanted to find my own apartment and I was in the hallways and elevators with a variety of extremely short chubby women. I finally found my own place and I wanted to change clothes. I was hunting and hunting for something to wear and couldn't find anything. In my memory, I could remember having the clothes, ...pretty pastel blouses skirts and dresses, etc. But they were all gone. Finally, I realized my husband had taken them all and I got so angry, I went to find him to accuse him of stealing my clothes. I didn't actually see him, but saw a long lump under the bed covers I assumed was him. I started accusing him of stealing my clothes. I was getting angrier and angrier and I finally said, "Why did you steal all my clothes?" The voice from under the blanket said, "I wanted you to know what it was like to be 'normal'!" I said, "Since when is it 'normal' not to have more than one blouse and one bra (which I was wearing). I was so angry, I started slamming doors and knocking stuff off cabinets and tables in the kitchen. I opened the door to leave and go out into the dark hallway and then realized I didn't have my keys, my purse, or my shoes. I almost went back to find them, but realized that as angry as I was, my husband could have me locked up in a mental hospital and have them give me a shot to calm me down. I then went out into the dark hallway without anything I needed to feel safe and secure.
I woke up with my chest all hot and burning like I was going to have a heart attack. I was so angry. It reminded me of all the times I had been angry at him when I was actually married to him back in the old days of the 60's and 70's when I had to beg him to let me buy underwear even though I deserved it because mine were full of holes. I still feel angry when I think of how much under his thumb I had been. (That was the least of it. Believe me!)
As I was laying in bed trying to calm down and thinking about the dream, I heard Joe, who was laying next to me, calling me..."Honey! Wake me up! Honey! Wake me up!" This was not the first time Joe had been in a lucid dream he could not wake up from, so I jostled his arm and he woke up instantly.
This was the nightmare Joe couldn't get out of.
1-1-99 - DREAM - Joe - I was in a house and there was a woman who was doing things. It looked like a normal woman at first but then I seemed to sense that she was in disguise. As I started to see the 'Kali' aspect of the woman, it became more animated with line drawings, changing and transforming from one to another and the pace increased faster and faster. I became determined to find out what this was and expose it, so I concentrated more on it and as I did the scene transformed into a picture on the wall and I was filming it close up from about 3 feet away with a video camera. I was determined to capture all the information about it. The room was lit at this time and the picture was bright. The images kept going from one to another very quickly. Then everything started turning dark, the room became darker and darker, and the image became dark blue. The images themselves were lit up like neon in various colors and continued to transform. As the images appeared, they threw out flashes of light through the darkened room. At that point in the dream, it became more frightening and suddenly I was awake in the bedroom like I had awakened from a dream. The room was dark but flashes of light were coming from the wall at the foot of the bed. As the lights flashed on the wall, shadowy images appeared in the same type of transformation as I had been filming in the picture. After a bit, I realized I was still actually dreaming, that I hadn't really woke up. I started yelling to Dee, "Honey! Wake me up! Honey! Wake me up!", and she woke me up.
A few minutes later, after I was awake, I saw a whole long list of serious subjects I could choose from to make a web page and I didn't want to take any of them, because it meant an extreme amount of research and I already have many pages started I haven't completed yet. A I lay in bed thinking about nothing in particular, waiting for another vision of worthy focus, the word Tamasisk kept coming into my head...exactly what Joe and I both dreamed about last night. Tamasisk means anger and fury.
The next day on 1-2-99, I again had dreams and visions about the same subject. The lucid dream consisted of myself picking up tiles that were colored pink and gray marble rectangles. They were labeled Tamasisk. I didn't touch any of them with my hands, but used a tool like a nail or something long like a nail and moved it from one spot where it was by itself and built a wall-like panel of 54 tiles together. They were 9 high and 6 wide. (I don't yet know the significance of the number of tiles)
(The Esoteric Alphanumerical meaning of 54 is LOVE. )
Not knowing the significance of what I was doing, I got tired of moving the tiles because it's boring even in the dream state doing repetitive things when there are no people or conversations involved, so I opened my eyes before it was done and rolled over in bed. When I did that, a voice in my head said, "Can't you even finish?" I came to the realization that this was a special project and even though I had rolled over in bed with my eyes open, when I closed them again, I could still see the rectangular tiles and finished moving the last four even though I didn't feel like it. It felt like a duty at that point.
I then fell asleep and had a couple dreams about cleaning the floors in my Father's mansion in which my Father provided the tools. There was a lot to do because the children had played alone in the house while my Mother and I had been away on an errand. It was a mess when we got back. A woman who lived there, who I think was named Ida (she looked like my aunt...a short chubby woman) came home from her vacation and was upset because the floors were a mess. I apologized, and we took the brooms my Father provided and swept out straw that the donkey outside had been using for bedding, and I vacuumed up the dust from around the edges with a small vacuum cleaner head on a long snake-like wand which vacuumed and polished at the same time. Kevin from "One Life to Live" TV show came to help and showed me how to give the floor a high polish using a dry string mop.
After I woke up from the dream, I was still extremely groggy, so I lay in bed thinking about the dream.
Again I started to see the Tamasisk tiles. Above the tiles appeared the name Coultrane.
A voice then said, "There are 19,000 co-creators."
The voice then said, "The co-creators are on the side like an island, and the island is Greek."
He then said, "Joe and you are a good team, and you are doing a good job." I said, "Thank you!' My state of alertness came instantly awake and I got up for the day, knowing that was all the information I was going to get.
Chinnamasta, representing Devi in her destructive
Rajasthan, c. 18th century.
WHO IS KALI?
One of the most terrifying aspects of Prakriti are violent emotional expressions. Tantra's basic basic philosophy is based on a dualism, and the terrifying image projects the negative aspect of the creative life-force. In the creative aspect, Sakti appears as an enchantress. In her negative aspect she is demystified and transformed. The image has a naked intensity, so fierce that the incommunicable ceases to be a mystery. Kali, one of the most important tantric Dasamahavidyas, in her negative aspect appears as a conglomeration of terrifying elements. Kali is the symbol of the active cosmic power of eternal time (Kala) and in this aspect she signifies annihilation: through death or destruction creation, the seed of life, emerges. Just as the destruction of the seed leads to the birth of the tree, so disintegration is a normal and necessary step of nature moving towards further progress or unfolding. Kali is the embodiment of creation, preservation, and annihilation. She inspires awe and love at the same time. As a disintegrating tendency, Kali is represented in black, so all names and forms disappear into her' (Mahanirvana Tantra) The density of blackness is also identified with the massive, compact, unmixed, Pure Consciousness. In Tantric hymns to the goddess Kali, she is described as 'digambari' garbed in space - in her nakedness, she is free from all covering of illusion. She is full-breasted, her motherhood a ceaseless creation denoting preservation. Her disheveled hair, 'elokeshi', forms a curtain of death which surrounds life with mystery. Her garland of fifty human heads, each representing one of the fifty letters of the sanskrit alphabet, symbolizes the repository of power and knowledge; the letters are nuclear sound-elements symbolizing the power of mantras. She wears the 'girdle of human hand': hands are the principal instruments of work and so they signify the action of karma or accumulated deeds to be enjoyed in subsequent births, constantly reminding one that ultimate freedom is conditioned by the fruits of one's action.
Kali, annihilation aspect of Sakti, standing on
Rati and Kama,
Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, c. 18th century.
Her three eyes govern the three forces of creation, preservation, and destruction. Her white teeth, symbolic of Sattva, the translucent intelligence stuff, suppress her lolling tongue which is red, indicative of Rajas, a determinate level of existence leading downwards to Tamas, inertia. Kali has four hands: one left hand holds a severed head, indicating destruction and the other carries the sword of physical extermination, with which she cuts the thread of bondage. Her two right hands dispel fear and exhort to spiritual strength. She is the changeless, unlimited primordial power (adyasakti) acting in the great drama awakening the unmanifested Siva, a passive onlooker. Their inseparable union reflects non-duality.
The image of a wrathful appearance can agitate the eye and transport the spectator to a supernatural world. From an aesthetic point of view they suggest a flight from reality and an awareness of a profoundly different world: the poignant, restless and aggressive. These images unveil reality so that it is stripped bare, and have the same mind-altering capability to induce extra-ordinary experience which arouses intense inward states of rich spiritual content. Their most characteristic feature is that of images which seem to have sprung from anon-rational source but nevertheless have a rational basis within defined limits.
For example, Chinnamasta, the beheaded goddess, holds her severed head; apart from its symbolic meaning, the dismemberment of the body ought not to be confused with actual distortion: the image is not dissociated from its meaning, which underlies and generates the image; where dislocation appears it is to heighten visual impact.
The terrifying aspects of these images are completely dispelled in the tantric asana forms in both sculpture and painting. In art we are confronted with an ecstasy of joy in all its plastic possibilities. These united male and female figures are drawn together in creative force towards the awakening of the inner spirit, new dynamic asana-forms. Filled with ecstatic conviction, they are no longer torn between the contradiction of life and social existence.
The interlocking figures represent the antinomic principles; they are symbols of transcendent union, which do not in any way convey the gross sexual intercourse depicted, which illustrates an earth-bound level of existence.
Terrifying images arouse 'tamasisk' the quality allied to the emotion of fury and awesomeness, diametrically opposed to these are silence and compassion, associated with sattiva, the quality of purity.
The four ages of the Hindu chronology contain a far more philosophical idea than appears on the surface. It defines them according to both the psychological or mental, and the physical stages of man during their period. Krita-yuga, the golden age, the "age of joy," or spiritual innocence of man; Treta-yuga, the age of silver, or that of fire- the period of supremacy of man and of the giants and of the sons of God; Dwapara-yuga - the age of bronze - a mixture already of purity and impurity (spirit and matter), the age of doubt; and at lat our own, the Kali-yuga, or age of iron, of darkness, misery, and sorrow. In this age, Vishnu had to incarnate himself in Krishna, in order to save humanity from the goddess Kali, consort of Siva, the all-annihilating - the goddess of death, destruction, and human misery. Kali is the best emblem to represent the "fall of man"; the falling of spirit into the degradation of matter, with all its terrific results. We have to rid ourselves of Kali before we can ever reach Moksha or Nirvana, the abode of blessed Peace and Spirit.
With that in mind, remember that after the Kali-yuga, we will again be entering into the next golden age of Krita-yuga.
The Hindu Calendar
The Hindu Calendar in Brief
According to Helena Blavatsky in her book "Isis Unveiled" on page 443 - Vol II, she states: The exoteric plan of the Bible was made to answer also to four ages. Thus, they reckon the Golden Age from Adam to Abraham; the silver, from Abraham to David; copper, from David to the Captivity; thence-forward, the iron. but the secret computation is quite different, and does not vary at all from the zodiacal calculations of the Brahmans. We are in the Iron Age, or Kali-Yuga, but it began with Noah, the mythical ancestor of our race.
Noah, or Nuah, like all the euhemerized manifestations of the Un-revealed One - Svayambhuva (from Svayambhu) - was androgyne. Thus, in some instances, he belonged to the purely feminine triad of the Chaldeans, known as "nuah, the universal Mother." Every male triad had its feminine counterpart, one in three, like the former. It was the passive complement of the active principle, its reflection. In India, the male Trimurti is reproduce in the Sakti-trimurti, the feminine; and in Chaldea, Ana, belita, and Davkina answered to Anu, Bel, Nuah. The former three resumed in one - Belita, were called:
"Sovereign goddess, lady of the nether abyss, mother of gods, queen of the earth, queen of fecundity."
As the primordial humidity, whence proceeded all, Belita is Tiamat, or the sea, the mother of the city of Erech (the great Chaldean necropolis), therefore an infernal goddess. In the world of stars and planets, she is known as Ishtar or Astoreth. Hence, she is identical wtih Venus, and every other Queen of Heaven, to whom cakes and buns were offered in sacrifice, and , as all the archaeologists know, with Eve, the mother of all that live, and with Mary.
Joe Mason states, "One of the ideas in my essay was that the harlot of Rev. 17 has the same meaning as Kali in the eastern traditions. We are nearing the end of the Kali-Yuga, the Age of Iron, and will return to the Age of Gold. The four metals associated with the "frightening image" dream of Nebuchadnezzar are the same in the Hindu chronology. Kali is thrown down at the end of the cycle. Kali (the harlot) represents karma or judgment, and it is this "beast" that is thrown down at the end of the cycle, as indicated by Rev. 17:11. It seems to be the "Swallower" of the Egyptians, an "eighth that belongs to the seven." The harlot symbolism seems to mean that we "pay" for the "fornication," meaning the duality bond in the time cycle. We "kings" of the earth give over our "royal power" to the beast until the words of God are fulfilled. (Rev. 17:11) Kali wears a girdle of severed human hands. As the instruments of our works, it indicates the karmic function. Kali invokes "tamasisk," emotions of fury, which corresponds to being drunk on the wine of the harlot. The 12 stars of Rev. 12, and the New Jerusalem fit with the idea of the Heart chakra level, which has twelve petals on the lotus, with a Star of David inside.
Century X-74 says, "The year of the great seventh number accomplished, it will appear at the time of the games of slaughter, not far from the age of the great millennium, when the dead will come out of their graves." In 1993, two individuals at the same work place told me that they had recurring dreams of dead people in coffins, including their own fathers, speaking to them. Their fathers are alive in real life. I believe the context of this is spelled out in Revelation 3:1,2, ". ..you have the name of being alive, and you are dead. Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, . . ."
In Ezekiel 9:2, six men came from the north upper gate, with weapons for "slaughter." With them was a seventh man, clothed in linen, with a writing case at his side. The seventh man marks the foreheads of those who will not be slain.
This type of symbolism goes way, way back. The original meaning was a purification process, after which one is pardoned. The Kali-Yuga is an age of "death or destruction creation," and is equated to a seed growing into a plant. The seed is destroyed in the process of the plant's growth.
It relates to the second remote viewer's perception "that there were subspace and physical beings who were watching something big and vast in a contented and pleased way. They were working to finish an important project. The project was enjoyable, almost like playing."
The Lion in Century III-52 is also of much interest. I believe it is related to "the kings of the earth" in Revelation. In the cycle ruled by the "harlot," which I believe is related to Kali, the kings fornicate with the harlot and become drunk on her wine. This seems to refer to anger. Kali is said to evoke "tamasisk," meaning anger. When the New Jerusalem comes in Rev. 21, the kings of the earth bring their glory into it. There is no longer a need of sun and moon for light.
Rev. 3:11 says to "hold fast to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown." In The Gospel of Thomas, saying 7, Jesus says, "Lucky is the lion that the human will eat, so that the lion becomes human. And foul is the human that the lion will eat, and the lion still will become human." The film, "The Lion King," seems to carry symbolism about the cycle of time, and has a correspondence with the Egyptian myths. "Scar" is the evil brother who slays the father lion, which is similar to Typhon-Set killing his brother, Osiris. According to Blavatsky, the story of Cain and Able was adopted from that story. The scar on the eye of the evil lion may hint at the mark of Cain. The young lion corresponds to Horus. He returns to the desolated kingdom and defeats the evil uncle in the final battle. Then the rains come, greening the earth again. The line in Century III-17, "When the monarch will chase his nephew," could refer to Typhon-Set as the King in charge, and his nephew, Horus, the rightful King. In "The Lion King," the young lion is chased away by Scar. The symbolism, I believe, is saying something about our time cycle in a symbolic way, and new ideas are coming in inspired stories, as well as dreams, and other ways.
The Hopi say that the Sacred Symbols will be newly understood, in the time of purification. A "twin" departed long ago, who is called Pahana, which translates into "white man." He is expected to return soon, carrying the cross and the swastika, as the symbols of the feminine and masculine energies. Interestingly, Quetzalcoatl was also a white man who departed by sea, promising to return.
The swastika is also a symbol of Shiva and Kali, the Destroyer god and goddess. About seven years ago, I saw a counterclockwise swastika in a dream. Energy was flowing out from the center into the arms. A voice said, "These are the forces going out from the center to experience negative manifested events, in order to learn. It is generally square, and you circle counterclockwise." In the following months, I learned that the swastika is a very ancient symbol.
It was said that when it is going clockwise, or east, it is a symbol of good luck.
About two years ago, my friend, Paul, wrote to me, saying that he had been having "twin theme" dreams. In one of them, he was at Twin Lakes in Minnesota. I wrote back to him, telling of various twins in mythology. I mentioned the Gemini Twins, Castor and Pollux, and how they were the protectors of sailers and ships. I mentioned that St. Paul once sailed on a ship called the Castor and Pollux. (Acts 28:11).
I recalled that Minnesota also has the Twins baseball team, and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis AND ST. PAUL! It was very curious that the name St. Paul came to me at that time. I looked up some names in the dictionary. The twin city was named after Minnehaha Falls and the Greek word for "city." Minnehaha was the girl Hiawatha married in Longfellow's, "Song of Hiawatha."
It all seemed to fit so well. The Twin Cities could symbolize the Red-Man/White-Man mix, in the Great Change.
When I got online near the end of 1996, I did a search for Hopi legends. I clicked on one of the links, and came to an article by David Yarrow. He tells an amazing story that happened over a period of years. Almost everything seemed related to material I had gathered. David and I started communicating via e-mail, and later I called him on the telephone. We had a very long talk, and I was amazed again. When I mentioned that some of his story involved the city of Minneapolis, he immediately started telling me the same symbolic story I was about to tell him.
He also said that the city was located above two great plates in the earth that come together, and that Hiawatha was sent by the legendary "Peacemaker" of the eastern tribes, as a messenger.
The story of Castor and Pollux, I think, has important symbolism. Pollux was fathered by Zeus, while Castor was born to the same mother, a Queen, in the normal way. Therefore, Pollux was immortal, and his brother was mortal. After many adventures, Castor was killed in a battle.
Pollux prayed so fervently, that Zeus allowed him to share his immortality with his brother. But, they would have to spend half of their time in Heavenly Olympus, and the other half in Hades. In one of the myths, they go back and forth together. In another they change places, so that they are eternally separated, and never together.
Although I have never been a Christian, I have had many coincidences with various parts of the Bible. It's too long to tell fully here, but one of my dreams seemed to be related to the story of Judah and Tamar in Genesis 38. It's a very strange tale, but to me, it contains important symbolism. Tamar was married to Judah's oldest son, who was killed by "God." She married the second son, and he was also killed. She was promised to the third son, but Judah delayed the marriage. Tamar devised a plan. She dressed up as a harlot, and propositioned the unsuspecting Judah into having sex for a price. From the union was born a pair of twins, in a strange, breech birth. A hand came out of the womb first. The midwife tied a red thread on the hand, and then the hand pulled back into the womb. Then, the other child, the one without the thread, was born first.
The first born son, Perez, is listed in the chronology in the first part of Matthew. His descendants include Kings David and Solomon, and finally Joseph, the father of Jesus. Some say God was the father, but I do believe that is symbolic.
The "harlot" symbolism is very important here. In the battle of Jericho, Joshua and his troops are helped by a harlot, who lived with her family in the walls. In Revelation 17, the great harlot of Babylon is seated upon many waters, which are peoples and nations, that is, everyone. Judah is related symbolically to the lion, and to being the ruler, or king. (see Genesis 49:9,10). He stoops down, couched as a lion, and as a lioness, i.e., like a sphinx. The scepter, the ruler's staff, will not depart from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs.
All of this, I do believe, is related symbolically to parts of Revelation. In Revelation 17, the kings of the earth fornicate with the harlot, and become drunk on her wine. They give over their "royal power" (king-ship) to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. When The New Jerusalem comes, the kings of the earth bring their glory into it. (Rev. 21:24).
The wine of the harlot is also the cup of staggering, and the fury of God's wrath. Some seem to take this as meaning that God is angry with mankind. I think not. It seems to mean we have been given this male/aggressive, negative attribute to deal with and to overcome. In Revelation 12, it is said that Michael and his angels were defeated in the war in heaven. The dragon/serpent/Devil/Satan and his angels were thrown down to earth. The earth came to help the woman with child, by swallowing the river which poured out of the mouth of the dragon.
When I first read this about five years ago, I felt it was related to one of my dreams. In the dream, I saw a crop formation that had appeared the same week that Iraq (ancient Babylon) invaded Kuwait. It looked somewhat like a swastika, but also like a bird, with a triangular tail. It reminded me of the American eagle on our national seal, looking to the left, toward the arrows of war. In my dream, energy was flowing down the triangular tail. A voice said, "The garbage is discharged here on earth."
In early 1993, I had a string of amazing dream-coincidences. Part of it involved a book called, "The Tantric Way." Kali, of the eastern religions, seems to have the very same meaning as the harlot of Revelation 17. One of the depictions is the book, shows the dark-skinned Kali seated upon a reclining, copulating couple. The male is dark blue, wears a crown, and is on the bottom.
A white-skinned female is on top of him. This is similar to the kings of the earth fornicating with the harlot, or a daughter of the harlot. Kali holds scissors in her hand, which I believe symbolizes the cutting or dividing force, i.e., like the "Babylon" symbolism.
From dreams, I had made the interpretation that the harlot also represents karma or judgment. I believe we have more to learn about the meaning of this. It seems to be more of a learning experience, than a reward/punishment system. The "fornication" with the harlot or daughters of the harlot, seems to represent a duality bond in the time cycle. The symbolism means we "pay" for the "sex," meaning karma.
Kali wears a girdle of severed human hands. As the instruments of our works, this indicates the karmic function. Kali evokes the feeling of "tamasisk," which means fury. It seems to have the very same meaning as the wine of the harlot. I found it interesting that tamasisk and Tamar are similar words.
Near the end of September 1993, I sent an essay about some of these ideas to John Crowe, of the Cosminar organization in Sussex, England. Two weeks later, the Bythorn Mandala crop formation appeared. It was VERY similar to a yantra to Kali, depicted in "The Tantric Way."
The five-pointed star inside the pattern, had two points facing North. According to Blavatsky, such a star, with two points, or horns, pointing upward, is an esoteric symbol of the Kali-Yuga time cycle, also known as the Age of Iron.
Getting back to the dog/wolf symbolism, I believe it can be related symbolically to this fury/anger symbolism. In the time cycle, which I believe is related to the lower three chakras, the negative side of the dog/wolf is the condition. The change is a leap to the heart chakra level, and the "virgin birth" of the spiritual man out to the animal man. This is the transmutation of the warring attribute, sometimes symbolized by the white dog or wolf.
In my article about Revelation 11:11, I explained some of the symbolism indicating humanity's leap to the heart chakra level of consciousness evolution.
There are many other things I could add, but this e-mail is starting to become a book, so I'll just mention a few more things.
In the Babylonian myths, the father and mother gods produced a son, Bel (Lord) Marduke, to do battle with the evil goddess. He blew an evil wind into her mouth, to hold it open, then fired in an arrow, which killed her. From the body of the evil goddess, he created the world. He brought order out of chaos. Marduke also chased down the Storm Bird, Zu, who had stolen the tablets with the fates of men, and retrieved them. This battle that began before the creation of the world, seems to be related to our battle in the cycle of time. A "storm" can also be symbolic of anger or fury.
Another pair of twins in the Bible are Esau and Jacob. Esau, who was born first, was red and hairy. Jacob tricked Esau into giving up his inheritance in a strange way, involving a bowl of red beans. Jacob fathered 12 sons, who are related to the twelve tribes of Israel, and probably to the Zodiac signs. According to Blavatsky, the story follows the symbolism of the Egyptian myth of Osiris, who was killed by his brother, Typhon-Set (or Typhon-Seth). The story of Cain and Able is also similar. In Egyptian beliefs, Typhon-Set, who was red in color, represented the opponent force. It was more laughable than fearful or evil. Blavatsky said that Typhon-Set became "Satan" to later religions, and that the word came from "satin," which meant "opponent."
As I see it, our feminine aspect can be symbolized by the daughter of the harlot in the time cycle.
In the Great Change, the aspect becomes the Holy Spirit. The Mother Goddess is also shown symbolically to change, or be replaced. In Revelation, the harlot is replaced by The Woman With Child in Revelation 12.

THE AGE OF KALI
The Age of Kali for the Hindu is the natural ending of the world in the fourth age . It is one of a series of changes, each of which marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another creation. The central figure in the story is Vishnu, the preserver God, into whose self the world is absorbed before being born again. Vishnu has already saved humanity on a number of occasions, symbolically appearing as a savior in many different forms. Vishnu incarnates in 10 avatars, of which there have been 9, the last three have been: 7. Rama 8. Khishna 9. Buddha It is said that He will appear again , as Kalki 'the avenger', riding a white horse , destined to destroy the present world (the corrupt age of the goddess Kali) and to take humanity to a different, higher plane (the golden age of Krita).
ichchha — the will.

karmaphala — the result of an action.
karmendriya — an action organ, e.g. the hands or feet.
WHO IS KALI?
Though Kali is associated with divinity, She has also been called 'Queen of the Demons' (and deservedly so). Her role could be compared to that of Persephone/Proserpine of the Greeks, who descends into the Underworld to rule there during half the seasonal and cosmologic cycle. Kali seems much more in control over Her destiny than the Greek goddess, however.
Let us begin, then, with this story to which I make mention (perhaps one of the first known concerning Kali):
The gods and the titans engaged in a great battle. There was one particular titan who was too powerful for the lesser gods to defeat. Durga, the Warrior/Mother goddess, was then called upon for aid. She arrived in splendour, riding a lion into battle, Her ten arms each bearing a magical weapon, Her ten faces each displaying a serene calm. She became the center of a cyclonic force of destruction.
Durga wounded the asura king (who was Her main opponent and the hub of his army). From his wounds the blood flowed to the ground, yet where each drop touched the soil a 'clone' of him appearred. The more quickly and fiercely She attacked, the faster his reproduction took place.
In the heat of Her frenzy, Durga called forth Her most powerful (and gruesome) aspect. From Her brow emanated Kali, the Destroyer. Kali was as black as the night, draped in a tiger's skin, was wearing a necklace of skulls, a skirt of severed hands, and had a gaunt, ghoulish contenance. She was the very essence of wrath. With the fierce passion of a mad mother protecting Her children, She began to eat the asura army.
Kali's intense hunger and lust for blood were the necessary elements for victory. She gobbled up the new forms of the asura king, slurped up the blood escaping from his wounds, finally devouring him whole. The army, defeated and demoralized, quickly dispersed and peace was again restored to the realm of the gods.
In many ways the asuras were the manifestation of malevolent masculine energies. They are most often depicted in male form and almost always as feral, animal-like beings. They are the brutish, coercive aspects of the Cosmos.
In this story Kali is a savioress despite the gruesomeness of Her appearance. She enters as the Queen of Battle in order to quench the demon-fire that ravages the heavens (and by fallout, our world). Her main strengths are Her passion and Her ability to take others into Herself: to consume. This is an important point. Kali is the powerful, hungry feminine. The consumption of the masculine is therefore necessary and transformative.
When a battle is forced (by asura-energies), it is our ability to take in, to absorb the very being of our adversary which makes real peace possible (preferrably by our understanding of their position and thus our ability to negotiate, rather than our ability to predict their behavior and react aggressively in response).
If and when consciousness devolves into combative conflict (as it has many times in the past and shall likely continue), then 'consuming our adversary', in the spirit of 'knowing our enemy', is the best method of successful resolution. Direct confrontation only breeds others in succession who will readily assume the role of adversarial leader in the event of a temporary triumph.
When ravaging masculine energies threaten the sacred, Kali comes to the fore here so as to quell the activity of that war, matching the wild masculine passion with Her feminine counterpart, and renewing a harmonized equilibrium.
Kali is the mask of Death, drinking the Elixir of Life (blood) and reconciling polar energies. She is the goddess of our time (in many Hindu cosmologies we currently live in the 'Kali yuga', or 'Age of Kali' -- a time of disintegration and moral depravity).
by His Divine Grace
Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada:
Let me first offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is the ultimate goal of life for one bereft of all possessions in this material world and is the only meaning for one advancing in spiritual life. Thus let me write about His magnanimous contribution of devotional service in love of God.
A person in the conditioned stage of material existence is in an atmosphere of helplessness, but the conditioned soul, under the illusion of maya, or the external energy, thinks that he is completely protected by his country, society, friendship and love, not knowing that at the time of death none of these can save him. The laws of material nature are so strong that none of our material possessions can save us from the cruel hands of death. In the Bhagavad-gita (13.9) it is stated, janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi-duhkha-dosanudarsanam: one who is actually advancing must always consider the four principles of miserable life, namely, birth, death, old age and disease. One cannot be saved from all these miseries unless he takes shelter of the lotus feet of the Lord. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is therefore the only shelter for all conditioned souls. An intelligent person, therefore, does not put his faith in any material possessions, but completely takes shelter of the lotus feet of the Lord. Such a person is called akincana, or one who does not possess anything in this material world. The Supreme Personality of Godhead is also known as Akincana-gocara, for He can be achieved by a person who does not put his faith in material possessions. Therefore, for the fully surrendered soul who has no material possessions on which to depend, Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the only shelter.
Everyone depends upon dharma (religiosity), artha (economic development), kama (sense gratification) and ultimately moksa (salvation), but Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, due to His magnanimous character, can give more than salvation. Therefore in this verse the words hinarthadhika-sadhakam indicate that although by material estimation salvation is of a quality superior to the inferior interests of religiosity, economic development and sense gratification, above salvation there is the position of devotional service and transcendental love for the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the bestower of this great benediction. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, prema pum-artho mahan: "Love of Godhead is the ultimate benediction for all human beings." Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami, the author of Caitanya-caritamrta, therefore first offers his respectful obeisances unto Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu before describing His magnanimity in bestowing love of Godhead.
The eightfold symptoms depicting the moods of pure dedication would decorate and radiantly enhance the beauty of the Lord's bodily parts.
Sometimes He appeared like a tortoise who had withdrawn his limbs into his shell, and at other times His body appeared elongated due to His joints becoming dislocated. Sometimes Lord Gaurasundara's figure was as tender and aromatic as a lotus flower. At other times the Lord's body would appear red, yellow, or brilliant with the white hue of the jasmine flower.
There is nothing higher than me, O Dhananjaya (Arjuna)! (5d)
6. Krsna is considered supreme most because of being the cause (of all), the ground of qualities like all-pervasiveness, consciousness, joy, etc., the possessor of the eternal Laksmi, and so forth.
Among those, (his) being the cause of all as the Svetasvatara (5.4-5) says:
That one deity, the Lord who is to be worshiped, alone oversees the natures (effects) and the causes (of the world). (6a) And who, the cause of the universe, matures nature and transforms all things to be ripened. (6b) (His) all-pervasiveness, consciousness, and joy as (stated) in the Katha Upanisad (4.4):
Thinking of the great and all-pervading self (atman), the wise man does not lament. (6c)
7. His having a form of consciousness and joy is understood by means of that word "self" (atman) [in the previous citation] because of its derivation as the goal of the liberated. So say those who know it.
The Vajasaneyin (Yajnavalkya in the Brhad-aranyaka Upanisad, 9.28) said:
Brahman is consciousness and joy, the giver of results to the giver, the highest resort [of the knower of Brahman]. (7a)
And in the Gopala-tapani Upanisad:
That one Govinda (Krsna) is the embodiment of (eternal) existence, consciousness, and joy. (7b)
8. The possession of form of him (Krsna) who is consciousness and joy is to be grasped like a musical mode (raga) and also, because of his glorification with words like "solidified consciousness (vijnana-ghana)," his possession of form (is established). By this it is shown tangentially that there is no difference between him and his body.
The all-pervasiveness of even one who has form as (stated) in the Svetasvatara Upanisad (3.9):
The one stands in heaven erect like a tree. By that person is all this pervaded. (8a)
9. From the statement that though he is situated in the heavens he pervades everything, he (both) has form and is all-pervading and he is also that because he can be visible simultaneously to many meditators.
THE COMING OF THE NEW AGE
Harmony and understanding
The Mythology and Associations: The ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. Its symbol represents water, a universal image which dates back into prehistory. This will also be recognized in the egyptian hieroglyph representing the same. The association in Aquarius is that of the servant of humanity pouring out the water of knowledge to quench the thirst of the world. These symbolic waves of water, share the dual expression of vibrational waves of electricity or parallel lines of force.
Personalities: Aquarians are interesting and attractive people. They can be shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; or enthusiastic and lively with a tendency to be exhibitionists. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their own way. Very opinionated with strong convictions, they fight for what they believe in. They will argue vehemently for what they believe to be true, however, if you can show them facts to the contrary, they have little trouble altering their opinion.
These are farsighted people with an eye and ear to the new and innovative. They are generally without prejudice and quite tolerant of the point of view of others. They have an interesting side to their nature that allows them to see a valid argument even when they disagree with it. They are quite objective folk and never get waylaid by being too close to an issue or person.
Regardless of type, Aquarius is truly a humane, human being. Known to be frank and outspoken, a 'on my mind, on my mouth' type, Aquarius makes for a serious and genial companion. Refined and idealistic, romantic but practical, they are personable and likable people. Quick in mind and quick to respond, Aquarians love activity and are quite reasonable, though difficult to get close to. They cherish and guard their independence, and are a strange mixture of caring concern and cool detachment. They will go out of their way to help when needed, but never get involved emotionally.
Mythic Origins —
To fully appreciate the mythological significance of Aquarius, it is necessary to bear in mind the importance of water to our ancestors. The very existence of the ancients depended upon the supply of life sustaining moisture. During the month of Aquarius, the rains were on the land, literally poured from the heavens. In many regions of the ancient world, this was seen as the beginning the new year, a time of new life cycles. It is not hard to understand why some images depict the figure of Aquarius as a water bearing angel.
The region of the night sky in which Aquarius resides is populated by water signs. In Babylonia, this region of the zodiac was known as the Sea. Here we also find, Capricornus, the water goat and Pisces, the fish.
To the Greeks, Aquarius was associated with Ganymede, the son of Tros, king of Phrygia. The god Zeus, so admired the boy's beauty that he abducted him to serve as cup bearer on Mount Olympus. It was this desire to possess the young prince which inspired Zeus to cast his image eternally in the night sky.
The Egyptians associated this time of year with the god Hapi. A heavyset, abundant figure, Hapi was responsible for the annual flooding of the river Nile. In some images he is seen watering the earth from two large jugs.
The Dreams: People have been having many water type dreams. Usually they are very scary. Many people are afraid that these dreams are prophetic and that the ocean is going to come over the land and kill everyone. However, other dreams like this portray similar ocean dreams but the dreamer just stands there and watches in awe and feels no fear. Other dreams are about fish tanks which are broken and fish are flopping on the floor helplessly, and others where the tank breaks and water falls to the floor, but the fish swim in the air just like they were still in the water. We have come to think of these dreams, as being prophetic, Yes! However, not that the physical world will be destroyed but that we are undergoing a spiritual change, and these dreams are messages that the Age of Pisces (a water sign) is ending, and that the Age of Aquarius (the water bearer sign) is coming in. This link is provided if you would like to read the dreams we have collected. WATER DREAMS
Let me quote from the book 'Millennium Prophecies, Predictions for the Year 2000, by A.T. Mann'. Chapter 10: Dates for the Beginning of the Age of Aquarius:
In the 'Book of World Horoscopes' Nicholas Campion mentions at least seventy dates for the beginning of the Age of Aquarius covering a range of 1500 years. He forewarns his readers by stating that there has been much confusion over this issue, and quotes the noted astrologer Charles Carter's statement that more rubbish has been written about this subject than any other branch of astrology, which is probably, in itself, an exaggeration.
As an illustration, Campion mentions an interesting synchronicity that occurred in 1962 involving a nineteenth-century French hoaxer and the renowned American clairvoyant Jeanne Dixon. In the 1890's Gabriel Jogand, primarily to agitate superstitious Catholics, deliberately devised and publicized a myth that the Antichrist was going to be born in 1962. On the projected day seventy years later, Jeanne Dixon had a vision that somewhere in the Middle East a baby had been born who would become a world teacher and lead humanity away from Christianity...an accurate definition of the Antichrist and also as a symbol of the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.
Campion constructed the horoscope computed from Dixon's estimated time and transposed it to Jerusalem and discovered that there had been a Solar Eclipse on the previous day when all of the traditional seven planets were in the sign of Aquarius. This is an interesting possibility for the entrance of the Age of Aquarius, but was not accompanied by an significant world events which would justify such a selection. This is also true of the majority of dates previously set for this momentous entrance...although enticing, they have not been persuasively connected with any major world events which would justify their claims. However, it could be reasons that the entrance into the Age of Aquarius is an inner, rather han an outer transformation, which could be the case.
Many of the following proposed dates for the transition into the New Age of Aquarius are symbolic rather than astronomical or astrological, based as they are on intuitive datum points or perceived transitions.
Among the more obvious suggestions for the beginning of the Age of Aquarius are the following:
1904: Aleister Crowley in the Book of the Law, dictated to him by a discarnate Egyptian entity, proposed April 1904 in Cairo.when the channeling occurred, as the beginning of the New Aeon ruled by Horus, the solar god of ancient Egypt.
1905: Gerald Massey used the standard precessional period of 2160 years for each zodiac sign of 30 degrees and assumed a starting point of 255 BC, which meant that the beginning of the Age of Aquarius was in 1905. He used the correct precessional period, but his starting point seems only to be justified because it is significant to Massey, rather than for humanity as a whole. (Signs of the Zodiac)
1911: Madame Blavatsky predicted that the reality of a Universal Church would become possible towards the close this century. The Theosophical Society based their calculation for the dawning of the Age of Aquarius on the channeling of the Lord Maitreya by Krishnamurti in 1911. (Madame Blavatsky biography)(Books by Helene Blavatsky)
1921: The Jockey Club of Barcelona received tremendous backing for a prediction that the world would end at this time.
Edgar Cayce stated that during
1936 the terrestrial axis had begun to shift, an exorable process
which would activate the transition between world ages. The change would
accelerate rapidly, with catastrophic consequences. A well-known
American geologist confirmed that this axis shift did indeed begin below
the Earth's surface in 1936.
1945: Alice Bailey determined that the transition to the Age of Aquarius occurred in the 1930s as described in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy. In 1945 the Master Djwhal Khul gave out The Great Invocation which invoked the powers of Light, Love and Divine Purpose irrespective of all religions, and in 1946 Alice Bailey wrote:...the day is dawning when al religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source. (Alice Bailey books)
1975: Rudhyar designated 1975 as the time when the Avatar of the New Age would appear. He allowed the possibility that it might not be the Second Coming of Christ anticipated by many, but that the Christ energy could be carried by a series of individuals who would be agents for this message.
1975: A. Woldben in After Nostradamus suggested a range of dates including 1975, 2000, 2023, and 2160. He stated that the transition of world ages is never exact and can take hundreds of years because they constitute a modification in collective consciousness.
1997: Carl Jung was inspired by the work of Nostradamus and supported his contention that the New Age would happen between 1997 and 2000.
2000: There are many prophecies which agree that the Millennium year is 2000, among them those of Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, St. Malachy, Garabandal, Fatima and other Christian prophets. Margaret Hone in The Modern Textbook of Astrology gives the year 2000 as a symbolic date for the new Age. The seer Catharine Emmerich believed that Lucifer would be unchained in 50 or 60 years before the year 2000. The theory of The Divine Plot, by this author, is an astrological model of the historical process expressing multiple cyclic world ages, and it projects a transition to a new world age in the year 2000.
2001: G. Barbarin stated that according to the principle of the Great Week and the six days of a thousand years of the adamic Era, there will follow a day of rest, the Millennium, which from the year 2001 will bring a thousand years of peace. While his prophecy echoes the Seventh Day Adventists, it is also similar to the Hebrew Jubilee Year and Nostradamus Seventh Millennium. (Catholic Jubilee Year) (Jewish Jubilee Year)(Nostradamus Prophecies) (Year of Jubilee)

I believe this astrological alignment is very significant and would very much appreciate your sharing as widely as you feel appropriate. Please note that the chart itself is an attachment.
with much love, Jude
In mid February a rare astrological concentration brings together a number of planets together with the North Node - denoting higher purpose - in Aquarius that energizes and inspires the possibility for transcendental breakthrough in some perhaps seemingly intransigent situations.
We measure our global sense of both space (latitude and longitude) and time (universal time - UT or GMT) from the prime meridian located at Greenwich, England. So we can perceive the collective influence of this momentous astrological event by looking at the alignment from this globally ‘centered’ perspective.
When we do something extraordinary and exquisite emerges.
At dawn on 14th February the day dedicated to St Valentine, the patron saint of Love, the Moon in Libra enters the seventh house of relationships. And Jupiter and Mars are aligned in Aquarius in the twelfth house of spiritual transformation.
Forty years ago, the intuitive words of a song called Aquarius, brought the dawning of the new age into our collective awareness:
When the Moon is in the seventh house
and Jupiter aligns with Mars.
Then love will rule the planets
and peace will steer the stars
At dawn on 14th February the Cosmos actually embodies this perfect alignment to support our collective manifestation of love and peace and dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
The Aquarian chart of 14th February reveals an incredible concentration of cosmic influences blending with the energies of Aquarius in the twelfth house. Expansive Jupiter and energetic Mars are aligned with the higher purpose of the North Node. The presence of Chiron the wounded healer offers us the opportunity to heal the schisms that have separated us for so long. Neptune emphasizes collective humanitarian movements and the co-creation of social justice. And the presence of the radiant Sun enlightens the entire alignment.
Mercury also in the twelfth house but just beyond the cusp in Capricorn, allies with transformational Pluto to communicate and anchor the Shift throughout our global structures and institutions.
The Moon in Libra in the seventh house emphasizes harmonious real –ationships.
Venus in Aries in the first house energizes and empowers dynamic co-creativity.
And whilst Saturn the great task master in opposition to Uranus the unexpected awakener is suggesting an ongoing confrontation as the dregs of the unsustainable old paradigm reluctantly give way to the untested hope of the new, their placements in Virgo and Pisces brings practical altruism and visionary inspiration to the transition.
At 7.25am on 14th February – and for the 18 minutes of the alignment, I invite you, in the universal heart, to add your own intention for love and peace and to co-create the dawning of the Age of Aquarius to that of the Cosmos. In whatever way feels appropriate for you, you may choose to align with7.25am (UT) or 7.25am local time energizing a wave of intention that will surge around the Earth.
Please feel free to circulate the Aquarian chart and its cosmic invitation to birth the Age of Aquarius.
With love, joy and gratitude in the universal heart,

2012: Terence and Dennis McKenna in The Invisible Landscape advance an idea derived from studies of primitive shamanism and psychoactive drugs that our universe is created by the holographic interaction between two hyper-universes, and the Universe if cyclic and recurrent.Based on extensive computer modelling, they think that humanity will experience a Resurrection into the Light during six days in Ad 2012 when, in the last 135 minutes, eighteen barriers, comparable to the appearance of life, the invention of language or the achievement of immortality will be experienced, thirteen of them in the last millisecond.
2012: Jose Arguelles discovered a system of cycles based on the ancient Mayan calendar and determined that the year 2012 would be the end of the 396 year Baktun of the Transformation of Matter, the collapse of global civilization with a following era of information and crystal-solar technology and galactic synchronization.
2020: Adrian Duncan proposed the Aquarian Mutation chart, a horoscope for the aquarian transition, being the time when Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct in Aquarius for the first time since AD 1404 (21 December 2020, 18:18 GMT, as published in Doing Time on Planet Earth)
2025: The Tibetan Djwhal Khul, speaking through Alice Bailey, stated that the Fourth Ray comes into manifestation in 2025, bringing qualities for preparing the discrimination and balance required for the intellectual and emotional refinement of humanity. Humanity will the be able to function more completely on the intuitional plane.
2059: Rudhyar in The Lunation Cycle.There is a disagreement over this and the following date in Rudhyar's work.
2060: Dane Rudhyar determined that the last precessional Age of Pisces began in 100BC and since a world age is 2160 years, the official Age of Aquarius begins in this year. He considered that the last 10 percent of each age is its Seed Period during which its influence will begin to be felt and experienced. He mentions that in 1844 a young Persian prophet announced the end of the Islamic era and the beginning of the New Age, the avatar of which would announce himself some nineteen years later. One of his original followers proclaimed himself Baba u llah (Glory of God) the Expected One, And , in 1846 the planet Neptune was also discovered.
Rudhyar believed that the new cycle had already started to release it spiritual-archetypal energies, which are now making their way downward into manifestation, producing a radical upheaval of public institutions focusing around the time of the massing of planets in the sign Capricorn, the ruler of large-cale political organizations.This would constitute a 'rite of passage' for all humanity and, in the destruction of existing and faulty ways of perceiving and organizing the world, humanity would discover a new way of life.
2160: Gordon Strachan in Christ and the Cosmos follows the standard precessional age of 2160 years using the birth of Christ as his datum point.
2874: Based on his mathematical analysis of the Great Pyramid passages, Morton Edgar set this date as the completion of Christ's Day of Restitution when the world will have gained all it has lost throughout history.
2915: Edgar Morton stated that in this year, forty years after the preceding date, the Redeemed Race will experience to the full the glorious liberty of the children of God, with complete dominion over the Earth.
The dates and attributions stretch all the way ahead to Robert Hand's use of precessional movement combined with the actual size of the constellation Pisces in the sky, to arrive at the date of AD 2813, and beyond to the year 3550.
It is clear from the preceding that the date of the entrance into the Age of Aquarius is anything but definite and it would seem that almost everyone has his or her version of the exact point. It is certain that the transition is in the process of taking place and it will have a great impact upon all humanity.
