"When Venus will be covered by the Sun.
Under the splendor will be a hidden form;
Mercury will have exposed them to the fire,
"Through warlike noise it will be insulted.


The Sun hidden eclipsed by Mercury
Will be placed only second in the sky;
Of Vulcan Hermes will be made into food.
The Sun will be seen pure, glowing red and golden.


Eleven more times the Moon the Sun will not want,
All raised and lowered by degree:
And put so low that one will stitch little gold.
Such that after famine plague, the secret uncovered.


The Moon in the full of night over the high mountain,
The new sage with a lone brain sees it;
By his disciples invited to be immortal.
Eyes to the south. Hands in bosoms, bodies in the fire.


In the places and times of flesh giving way to fish,
The communal law will be made in opposition:
It will hold strongly the old ones, then removed from the midst,
Loving of Everything in Common put far behind.


Jupiter joined more in Venus than to the Moon
Appearing with white fulness:
Venus hidden under the whiteness of Neptune
Struck by Mars through the white stew."

The date was not given --

Flanders - Brussegem, Belgium, July 2007

This looks to be Venus in the Cup!

Venus was also suggested in 7 x 7 grid floor in the Da Vinci Code Crop Circle --

The symbol of Venus, of course, is our symbol of "female."

I am reminded of some information in a 1997 article --

Debbie goes on to explain that there are also 22 Tarot cards that make up the Major Arcana. Each is assigned to a path on the Tree. The spheres/sephiroth on the left side of the Tree are feminine and those on the right are masculine. The ones in the middle row indicate a balance of the duality attributes. Two of the sephiroth on the sides are called HOD and NETZACH, representing Mercury and Venus, or the Head and the Heart, or the Intellect and Emotions. The lateral path joining the two is represented by the Tarot card known as The Tower. This card depicts people falling from a tower and being struck by lightning.
Mark mentioned that the Tree is also the basis of man, then wrote a little about the "Mystical Marriage" -

During the season of 1992 we saw a whole new chapter unfold in this enigma. In late July 1992 I discovered a formation just outside Tewkesbury which combined the planetary glyphs of Mars and Venus. The hieroglyph therefore symbolically represented the "Chemical Wedding" of the Alchemist's final stage in the "Great Work" of Unification: the aim of achieving synthesis of dualities, in this case Animus and Spiritus (conscious/unconscious), leading to a Super-Conscious state of illumination, represented as the hermaphrodite.

Mercury - astrological sign
Mercury is #8 on the left side of the Tree of Life
HOD - Glory - Splendor

Venus - astrological sign
Venus is #7 on the right side of the Tree of Life
NETZACH - Victory

These two astrological signs in the Tree of Life are aligned with each other on pathway #27
Pathway 27 - Key 14 Temperance.
Situated on the pathway between Netzach and Hod this card represents fruitfulness. The third harmonizing of the pillars of force and form, linking victory with glory. The careful balance achieved between force and form. It is the card of combination, of unity and the quaternary produces the pentagon or five sided figure illustrating organic growth. It is inspiration and the reconciliation of several parts in a great whole. It is the seed of new life entering a stage of total passivity. It is reincarnation or continuity of consciousness after death. A card of the middle way that indicates the need for temperance in all things. the need for calm, collected thought process to replenish ones provisions of that which is lacking. It is the calm after the storm of death and a moment of pause at the start of rebirth, like the first breath taken as the new journey begins.
Note: When you are inside the tree - the sides are reversed.

The seventh emanation on the Tree of Life. Netzach is regarded as the sphere of creativity, subjectivity, and the emotions -- a very clear contrast to the sphere of HOD, which represents intellect and rational thought. Netzach is the sphere of Love, and spiritual passion and is therefore associated with such deities as APHRODITE, VENUS, HATHOR, and others that personify these qualities.

In the crop circle, there is a 5-pointed Star within the circle. That also represents Venus.

The eighth emanation on the Tree of Life. Hod is associated with the planet Mercury and represents intellect and rational thought. It also represents the structuring and measuring capacities of the mind as opposed to the emotion and intuitional aspects of Netzach. Hod has no exact parallel in the TAROT, but is closely linked to the card JUDGEMENT, ascribed to the path between Hod and Malkuth.

There was a spectacular conjunction of Mercury, Venus and Saturn in 2001

- 6 Jan 2001 By Dr Tony Phillips   

Mercury, Venus and Saturn are converging for a spectacular close encounter this weekend.

Stick up your thumb and hold it at arm's length. It doesn't seem very big, does it? But it is, big enough to hide three planets.

This weekend Mercury, Venus and Saturn are going to crowd together in a patch of sky no bigger than your thumb. Astronomers call it a "conjunction" and it's going to be spectacular.

The show begins on Saturday evening, June 25th. Step outside and look west toward the glow of the setting sun. Venus appears first, a bright point of light not far above the horizon. As the sky darkens, Saturn and Mercury pop into view. The three planets form a eye-catching triangle about 1.5o long, easily hidden by your thumb.

Another Conjunction in 2006 What a Sight! The Moon and Three Planets

By Joe Rao Skywatching Columnist

Three planets and a crescent Moon will be putting on an ever-changing display in our morning twilight sky this week. 

Anybody who looks low toward the east-northeast about an hour before sunrise will immediately see Venus, which has been a fixture in the morning sky since the end of January.

As it usually does, Venus is shining brilliantly (this week it's at magnitude -3.8). Since the beginning of July it has been rising out of the east-northeast sky just as dawn breaks, about 1-˝ to 2 hours before the Sun. But through the remainder of August it loses altitude noticeably as it begins its plunge back toward the Sun.

Joining Venus this week is the planet Mercury.  This speedy planet is having a fine morning apparition in August, having already reached greatest western elongation-its greatest angular distance-19 degrees from the Sun back on Aug. 7.  At that time it was rising nearly 90 minutes before sunup and shining at magnitude +0.1, similar in brightness to the bright star Capella.  Since then, Mercury has been slowly dropping back toward the Sun but as if to compensate, it has been growing progressively brighter.

The third planet of the group is Saturn, which passed through solar conjunction on Aug. 7.  During the coming week, you should use Mercury and the brilliant Venus to guide you to Saturn as it begins to emerge into the morning sky.

On the 20th, Mercury will be positioned just over 1-degree directly above Saturn, both planets positioned below and to Venus' left. A narrowing crescent Moon will slide past Venus on the mornings of the 21st and 22nd. That same sliver of Moon-less than 36 hours from new phase-will be passing well above and to the left of Saturn on the morning of the 22nd. By then, Mercury will have brightened to magnitude -1.4, matching Sirius (the brightest star in the sky). [Sky Map]

The next morning, Mercury, Saturn and Venus will appear almost equally spaced apart from lower left to upper right along a diagonal line running about 8-degrees in length.  For comparison, your clinched fist held at arm's length measures roughly ten degrees in width. Mercury will then depart the scene, leaving Venus and Saturn behind and disappears into the dawn, passing superior conjunction on Sept. 1., 2006     

On the 26th, Saturn will sit half a degree below and slightly to the left of Venus. That's approximately the apparent width of the Moon.  By the following morning it will be half of a degree above and slightly to the right of Venus.  But compared to the dazzling morning star, Saturn will appear only 1/48 as bright.

By the end of August, Venus will be rising just over an hour before the Sun. But it's also rapidly sliding toward the Sun and by the end of September it will be rising only about a half-hour before it and despite its great brilliance it will finally become lost in the glare of the bright morning sky.  

As for Saturn, it will continue to climb progressively higher in the east-northeast sky as we transition from August into September.  Shining at magnitude +0.5, it rises around 4:45 a.m. local daylight time at the start of September; 3 a.m. by the 30th.  Any telescope magnifying more than 30-power will reveal the famous ring system which currently is tipped nearly 17-degrees toward Earth.

Lastly, keep in mind that when you are looking at this gathering of the Moon and three planets in this week's morning sky that in actuality, they are all at varying distances from our Earthly vantagepoint here on the Earth.  The Moon is, of course, the closest at roughly 238,000 miles.  Mercury comes next at about 114 million miles, followed by Venus at around 150 million miles. Finally, most distant of all, comes the ringed wonder, Saturn, at 943 million miles.

Another Venus and Mercury Conjunction  February, 2007

MESSENGER Flyby of Venus a Dress Rehearsal for Mercury
By Ker Than
Staff Writer
posted: 04 June 2007

 The upcoming flyby of a NASA spacecraft over Venus could provide new insights about the cloud-shrouded planet and will serve as a dress rehearsal for its rendezvous with its main target, Mercury, next year.

On June 5, MESSENGER will fly over Venus in a maneuver designed to use the pull of the planet's gravity to slow it down enough that it can slip into the orbit of Mercury. During the flyby, MESSENGER will decelerate from 22.7 to 17.3 miles per second (36.5 to 27.8 km/s).

"This change in MESSENGER's velocity is the largest of the mission," said MESSENGER mission systems engineer Eric Finnegan, of the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) at John Hopkins University.

A second chance

MESSENGER will approach the Venus on the planet's dayside at more than 30,000 miles per hour (48,000 km/h), pass over the boundary separating day from night, and pass within 200 miles of the planet's surface while on its night side.

The upcoming flyby will be MESSENGER's second pass by Venus. During the first flyby, in October 2006, no scientific observations were made because the planet was at superior conjunction, placing it on the opposite side of the sun from Earth. The closest approach on that flyby was about 1,800 miles (3,000 km) of the planet's surface.

"Because of superior conjunction, because we knew we were going into radio blackout, and we knew we had the second flyby coming up in June, we elected not to turn on any of the MESSENGER instruments at the time of that flyby," said the mission's principal investigator, Sean Solomon of the Carnegie Institution of Washington.

The second Venus flyby will mark the first time MESSENGER's full suite of scientific instruments is turned on simultaneously, allowing scientists to test and calibrate them before turning them onto their main planetary objective next January.

"The approach geometry is sufficiently similar to that of Mercury, allowing the seven instrument-package to be turned on and operating collectively in scientific observing mode, just as they will be for Mercury," Finnegan said.

Double-teaming Venus

MESSENGER is expected to collect more than 6 gigabytes of data about the Venus system and take more than 600 images during the 73- hour-flyby. The information will provide new observations about Venus's atmosphere, cloud structure, space environment, and perhaps even its surface.

During its brief sojourn, MESSENGER will join a European spacecraft, Venus Express, that is currently in orbit around Venus. The two probes will work together to investigate how particles from the Sun's solar wind affects and controls the upper layers of Venus's atmosphere.

"By coordinating and comparing these observations, we will be able to maximize the science from both missions and potentially learn things that would not be revealed by one set of observations alone," said study team member Ralph McNutt, also of APL.

Launched in August 2004, the MEcury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) mission is the first to visit our solar system's innermost planet in more than 30 years, ever since NASA's Mariner 10 mapped about 45 percent of its surface. MESSENGER's mission is to map the entire planet, as well as gather information about Mercury's composition and structure, its geologic history, and the makeup of its core and poles.

Frequency of Transits

Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Indeed, only six such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874 and 1882). The next two transits of Venus will occur on 2004 June 08 and 2012 June 06.

The principal events occurring during a transit are characterized by contacts. The event begins with contact I which is the instant when the planet's disk is externally tangent with the Sun. The entire disk of the Venus is first seen at contact II when the planet is internally tangent with the Sun. During the next several hours, Venus gradually traverses the solar disk at a relative angular rate of approximately 4 arc-min/hr. At contact III, the planet reaches the opposite limb and is once again internally tangent with the Sun. The transit ends at contact IV when the planet's limb is externally tangent to the Sun. Contacts I and II define the phase called ingress while contacts III and IV are known as egress. Greatest transit is the instant of minimum angular separation between Venus and the Sun as seen from Earth's geocenter.

Figure 1 (Low Res or High Res) illustrates the geocentric observing geometry of each transit across the Sun (celestial north is up). The 2004 transit crosses the Sun's southern hemisphere while the 2012 event crosses the northern hemisphere. The position of Venus at each contact is shown along with its path as a function of Universal Time. Each transit lasts over six hours. The apparent semi-diameters of Venus and the Sun are 29 arc-seconds and 945 arc-seconds respectively. This 1:32.6 diameter ratio results in an effective 0.001 magnitude drop in the Sun's integrated magnitude due to the transit. Geocentric contact times and instant of greatest transit appear to the left corners of figure 1 (Low Res or High Res).

Geographic Visibility of 2004 June 08

The global visibility of the 2004 transit is illustrated with the world map in Figure 2 (Low Res or High Res). The entire transit (all four contacts) is visible from Europe, Africa (except western parts), Middle East, and most of Asia (except eastern parts). The Sun sets while the transit is still in progress from Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Korea, easternmost China and Southeast Asia. Similarly, the Sun rises with the transit already in progress for observers in western Africa, eastern North America, the Caribbean and most of South America. None of the transit will be visible from southern Chile or Argentina, western North America, Hawaii or New Zealand.

The horizontal parallax of Venus (~30 arc-sec) introduces a topocentric correction of up to �7 minutes with respect to the geocentric contact times for observers at different geographic locations. Topocentric contact times (Universal Time) and corresponding altitudes of the Sun are presented for over one hundred cities in Table 1A (international) and Table 1B (USA).

Geographic Visibility of 2012 June 06

The global visibility of the 2012 transit is illustrated with the world map in Figure 3 (Low Res or High Res). The entire transit (all four contacts) is visible from northwestern North America, Hawaii, the western Pacific, northern Asia, Japan, Korea, eastern China, Philippines, eastern Australia, and New Zealand. The Sun sets while the transit is still in progress from most of North America, the Caribbean, and northwest South America. Similarly, the transit is already in progress at sunrise for observers in central Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and eastern Africa,. No portion of the transit will be visible from Portugal or southern Spain, western Africa, and the southeastern 2/3 of South America.

The horizontal parallax of Venus (~30 arc-sec) introduces a topocentric correction of up to �7 minutes with respect to the geocentric contact times for observers at different geographic locations. Topocentric contact times (Universal Time) and corresponding altitudes of the Sun are presented for over one hundred cities in Table 2A (international) and Table 2B (USA).

Transits of Venus are only possible during early December and early June when Venus's orbital nodes pass across the Sun. If Venus reaches inferior conjunction at this time, a transit will occur. Transits show a clear pattern of recurrence at intervals of 8, 121.5, 8 and 105.5 years. The next pair of Venus transits occur over a century from now on 2117 Dec 11 and 2125 Dec 08.

Edmund Halley first realized that transits of Venus could be used to measure the Sun's distance, thereby establishing the absolute scale of the solar system from Kepler's third law. Unfortunately, his method proved impractical since contact timings of the desired accuracy are impossible due to the effects of atmospheric seeing and diffraction. Nevertheless, the 1761 and 1769 expeditions to observe the transits of Venus gave astronomers their first good value for the Sun's distance.

The planet Mercury can also transit the Sun. Since Mercury orbits the Sun more quickly than does Venus, it undergoes transits much more frequently. There are about 13 or 14 transits of Mercury each century. All Mercury transits fall within several days of 8 May and 10 November. During November transits, Mercury is near perihelion and exhibits a disk only 10 arc-seconds in diameter. By comparison, the planet is near aphelion during May transits and appears 12 arc-seconds across. However, the probability of a May transit is smaller by a factor of almost two. Mercury's slower orbital motion at aphelion makes it less likely to cross the node during the critical period. November transits recur at intervals of 7, 13, or 33 years while May transits recur only over the latter two intervals. The next two transits of Mercury are on 2003 May 07 and 2006 Nov 08. For details on the first event, see:

Posted: Wed Jul 25, 2007 9:58 pm    Post subject: Venus Coincidence  

This crop formation is a coincidence to me. Earlier today, I was composing a letter to Wiz-Oz, where I gave some information about Venus and the five-pointed star. I had to do some chroes, so the e-mail is still unfinished.

I will paste in the notes I had for composing the letter --


Venus Morning Star, Venus Evening Star - Introduction - Michael R. Meyer

"The two olive trees/lampstands/prophets of Rev.11, seem to refer to the many, and the duality within them. The inside Self, often symbolized as the feminine/dreaming/intuitive/right brain self, is growing to match the male/rational/outside/left brain self. It is like going from a sky with the sun blocking out the Morning Star, to a Dawning Sunrise, where there are two, equal-sized Suns."

When I saw the sequel, "2010," I was a bit disappointed, until I woke up to the symbolism of the two Suns at the end. The Sun and the Daybreak Star, Venus, correspond to Adam and Eve, in my dream interpretations. We were created with a much larger male/rational/left-brain aspect. We only have a rib-sized portion of the female/intuitive/dreaming/right-brain aspect. As we awake from our dreams in the morning, and things "dawn" on us, the two lights are up there in the sky (at times). As the sun rises, the Morning star fades into invisibility overpowered by the sun, that is, our feminine side has even less function in daytime.

The symbolic meaning of two Suns becomes clear. Our Venus aspect will grow to match the Sun aspect. This is symbolized in a number of other ways in the crop formations, and in dreams. In the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said in saying number 22, that one must make the male and female into a single one, in order to enter the Father's domain. The most clear crop pattern that had this symbolism had the female sign of Venus joined together with the male sign of Mars.


In the sacred astronomy of ancient Egypt, Venus as the morning star represents the ascent of Maat, goddess of truth, in the celestial barque of her father Ra. As the evening star, she signifies the descent of Hathor, one of the goddesses in the afterlife who enters the Duat or invisible region of the sky where she welcomes departing souls.

In Maya myth, Venus is the companion of the sun. This no doubt reflects the fact that Venus is always close to the sun in the sky, rising not long before sunrise as morning star or after sunset as evening star. In the Classical period (250-900 AD), Venus was associated with Hun Ahaw, who guided his twin Yax Balam, the sun, through the Underworld. Hun Ahaw later became Hunaphu in the Hero Twins myth cycle in the post-Conquest Popul Vuh. Translator Dennis Tedlock interprets these myths as an account of the apparitions of Venus from heliacal rise as morning star, through disappearance beneath the night time horizon, to rise again as evening star. See "The Chinkultic disk" for more about the Hero twins


Lucifer is associated with the morning star (Venus) which arises in the East.

I am having a bit of difficulty with the two Biblical verses below. It seems to me that these two verses would indicate that Jesus and Lucifer are one and the same being. Can this be possible? I'm hoping you Christians out there can help me with this.> Revelation 22:16 - I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (English-KJV)

The 'bright and morning star' is supposed to represent the gift of immortality promised to the faithful, those who believe in and adhere to his teachings. Therefore to those who believe in him, Jesus is the gift of immortality, the gift of light and understanding.

Whether we are talking about his actual teachings, the teachings of the 'Church'(not!), or the spirit behind The Word, I am still happy to question, but I think its the Spirit....

Isaiah 14:12 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (English-KJV)



Joe Mason explains the Aztec Sun Stone Calendar. The outer ring portion of the Stone is said to be twin serpents, one light and the other dark. I believe the two represent the twins, Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl. They relate to Venus, corresponding to The Morning Star and Evening Star.

Quetzalcoatl, of course, is also known as Kukulkan (or Kukulcan) and the Feathered Serpent. Perhaps the depiction of two types of feathers in the center of the formation hint at the feathered twins of the Aztecs. They are positioned in a general Vesica Piscis arrangement, also suggestive of duality.

See: Mayan Prophecy of the End of the Great Cycle

Quetzalcoatl translates to plumed serpent. The word quetzalli eventually came to mean "treasure, or precious". The word coatl came to mean "dragon" as well as "snake" and occasionally "twin", hence it could mean "Precious Twin".

Joe Mason, contributed this excerpt from Moira Timms' book,

"Beyond Prophecies and Predictions" (p. 256): " "The name Quetzalcoatl is derived from the quetzal bird of Guatemala and Mexico. The quetzal had golden-green and scarlet plumage, and was considered the most beautiful of all birds. "Quetzal" also means precious. "Coatl" is serpent.

In the Maya language, "Kukulcan" means approximately the same thing. According to Hunbatz Men, "Ku" is sacred, God. "Kul" is coccyx, the base of the spine, where latent spiritual energy resides. "Can" means serpent. "Kukulcan" therefore is synonymous with "kundalini" - which is what the Kukulcan/Quetzalcoatl archetype is all about, of course.
To be iconographically correct, however, the god Quetzalcoatl is not himself the feathered serpent, but the one who emerges from the serpent, just as the spirit emerges from the body through the top of the head, and the Morning Star emerges from the horizon."


Why 2012?


Alignment 2012 - John Major Jenkins


Here, the head is the sun, and the splayed legs frame the birth canal that is the dark-rift in the Milky Way. Below this head is a ball and ring, which refers to the symbolism of the ballgame. [Long argument on the cosmic symbolism of the Maya ballgame omitted, which shows how the gameball is the December solstice sun and the goalring is the dark-rift in the Milky Way.] Finally, the upside-down serpent head on the left side of the diagram above: These ballcourt markers usually had a solar lord (or "ahau" face) in their mouths; this one doesn’t but it appears broken off. Again, this is the same symbolism:

sun in serpent mouth is equivalent to the other symbols, all of which indicate, in three different ways, the convergence occurring over the distant horizon.


Izapa Cosmology, 2012, and the Mayan Calendar


Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator (see diagram below).

The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997).

Thus, the Galactic Alignment "zone" is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 - 2016. This is "era-2012."

This Galactic Alignment occurs only once every 26,000 years, and was what the ancient Maya were pointing to with the 2012 end-date of their Long Count calendar.

What is the Galactic Alignment?


Wayland's Smithy - near Ashbury, Wiltshire, 9 August 2005

A somewhat similar "Aztec" type crop circle formation appeared last year around 2 August 2004, at Silbury Hill, near Beckhampton, Wiltshire. The same number relationship was suggested:

Another little coincidence was seeing the flooding in England on TV, and the road sign appearing, "Tewkesbury." I mentioned to Dee that I only heard of that place one time, and we had the information on our Tree of Life page. I was referring to this --

Mark mentioned that the Tree is also the basis of man, then wrote a little about the "Mystical Marriage" -

During the season of 1992 we saw a whole new chapter unfold in this enigma. In late July 1992 I discovered a formation just outside Tewkesbury which combined the planetary glyphs of Mars and Venus.

The hieroglyph therefore symbolically represented the "Chemical Wedding" of the Alchemist's final stage in the "Great Work" of Unification: the aim of achieving synthesis of dualities, in this case Animus and Spiritus (conscious/unconscious), leading to a Super-Conscious state of illumination, represented as the hermaphrodite.

Now that I see the diagram --

I realize this is Mercury (Hermes/Thoth), or perhaps a combination of Venus and Mercury.

The 1991 Barbury Castle triangular pictogram was said to be the Alchemical trinity, combining Sun/sulfur, Moon/salt, and Mercury/quicksilver.

Here's some information about Alchemy --


The Barbury Castle triangular crop formation - 1991 Trinity Association The Barbury
Castle formation is thought by some to be related to the Trinity. Known symbols of the
Trinity are similar. The glyphs at the corners have parallels in alchemical signs,
corresponding to:

North - sun, sulfur
Southwest - moon, salt
Southeast - Mercury, quicksilver

The primary reference that I read in several places was a book by George Von Welling.
The graphic symbols were similar to the Barbury Castle triangle. I found information

Opus Mago-cabbalisticum Et Theosophicum: In Which The Origin, Nature,
Characteristics, And Use Of Salt , Sulfur and Mercury are Described in Three Parts
Together with much Wonderful Mathemati
By George Von Welling,
translated by Joseph G. McVeigh Publisher: Weiser Books (January 2006)

Pages: 551 - Price: $80.00
Review by Lee Prosser - review

This big, thick book of magick, in hardcover and issued without dustjacket, is a special treat for those interested in magick, the paranormal, astrology, and all things supernatural. For the first time in over 300 years, the complete book is published again.

This is the text which influenced Goethe and his fictional Faust, and the book reveals long-hidden secrets utilized by Rosicrucianism, and the Golden Dawn among other secret societies.

Weiser Books deserves much praise for making the book available in English. It is divided into three parts. Each part is an in-depth look at what the author refers to as three elements: Salt, Sulfur, and Mercury.

Salt is about creation. It details information about the origins of life. Sulfur discusses the universe. Mercury is a grouping of prophecy covering what is to come, including the Apocalypse.

This book is a true and accurate mystery school manual. It is designed as a guide for unlocking occult secrets, and using those secrets. This book also covers alchemy.

astrologically speaking.

"Your Moon Sign is the sign of the Zodiac occupied by the Moon when you were born. "

It could mean Venus, but for a person it can mean woman?

If I could read this formation correctly, it states:

The woman with the Sun in her hair and the Moon at her feet.

"Your Moon Sign is the sign of the Zodiac occupied by the Moon when you were born. "

this is copy paste from astrological daily read:
Every eight years Venus, the planet of love, turns retrograde in Virgo beginningf on July 27 and lasts until September 8.

the sign says it all:

However, Mercury isn't in retrograde but Venus currently is and is in it's crescent phase - see image from
and will be dark mid August.

Venus movement across the sky:

Venus will then be in between the Earth & the sun in a near direct line.

So it isn't clear what this means, if anything.

This crop formation is a coincidence to me.

I think you'll find you are not alone there.Synchronicity works through everything/anything,including crop circles,be them by man or not.
Its funny how 666 is being mentioned, along with the B castle formation.I had 666 synch's with BC when i researched it back in 1991

I didn't take this one very seriously until I found this quote:
Now, by identifying the nearly exact relationship between the rotational time and the sidereal time of Venus, one may view a possible relationship between the orbital time of the Earth's moon and Venus. It were as though the retrograde movement of Venus is acting as a braking system on the Moon, synchronically with it own timing. The difference in the sidereal day-count and rotational time of Venus is nearly an exact multiple of the Moon's lunation time.

In fact, the difference of .003811 is fractally that of an ancient Maya day-count expression [1143c days]:

3811 x 3 = 11433

Computations based on remainder math (the addition or subtraction of multiples of 1143c) would provide a translation from one count to the other. In this regard, one may also keep in mind the Nineveh 2268c count [1134c]

Reference this site

Venus is currently in retrograde - mercury the messenger is usually the one most often referred to when in retrograde - not Venus. The formation has all of these attributes. Then the Ninevah cycle of the Galaxy comes into the equation. We keep getting a consistent theme thru' the crop formations.

Thanks Ginja for the reference point. It says for those interested:
Venus will go retrograde on July 27, 2007 until September 8, 2007.

Venus is retrograde for 42 days and is stationary about 2 days before and 2 days after retrogradation. Venus retro periods occur every eighteen months or so.

I keep getting re-occurring numbers in posts for various crop formations 42 is one, 18 is another 42 x18 = 756 base of Great Pyramid. 8/09/07 is another re-occurring number 504 or 42 & 54 = 2268 Ninevah Galactic cycle - see Clifford Hill Forum Post where I said Pluto & Venus seem to be the theme.

Wasn't even looking for this. So keeps following me!
