This information came from a video on 1-17-16

When I watched the video, I almost fell off my chair, because it showed the coast of California with

a streak of red on it exactly like I had prior to 2013 and published a reference to the dream (unknown exact date earlier)

This page is about the conjunction od Mars/Venus and I'm probably jumping to conclusions, but when you have a dream

you can't forget no matter how much time goes by, you gotta know its important.  would you want to see a streak

of blood all the way from San Francisco to L.A. like I did?

Here are the images.




 I had a dream about a calendar on May 4th wherein I was shown a calendar for Aug.  27th and 28th.

I had several visions today about these events.

California quakes happen every day, but not this size. See my maps at

I saw the Calendar in a vision- and it zoomed in on the dates  Aug. 27 and 28th.
[We looked it up on the calendar.  It's a Friday and Saturday.]

I knew it couldn't be a business event or a church event for 2 days including a Saturday, so I went into meditation to ask why I saw the calendar dates.

In meditation, I heard a low and loud foghorn sound, followed by a vision of what looked like a dead tree with no leaves and most of its branches broken off.

I asked again what and where something was going to happen, and I was told, earthquakes, 6 to 7 magnitude, and asked again and they said 6.7 and I asked where, and the voice said,  Coast of California centered on Los Angeles - multiple quakes lasting two days.

I know its always bad to give dates for events because then you are held accountable for right or wrong and scaring people,  but in this case, I saw the dates first, and I hope I do scare some people into going on vacation those two days, and getting away from the ocean and big buildings and whatever you do, don't drive on high bridges those two days either, because the quakes could also affect cities both north, south, and east of L. A.

I didn't remember I had this dream until the 7th of May and its amazing how well it relates to dreams following it.
Remember that in dreams, you have to be wearing your symbolism hat or you won't understand the dreams at all.

4-20-10 - 55555 portal?

DREAM -  I had this dream twice.

Someone gave me five 1/4 moon-shaped pieces of gemstones 5 times - and each piece hooked on to the previous one, and each set of five hooked onto the previous 5 pieces five times.

Thus there were 25 1/4 moon shaped pieces made into one grand hoop and placed on my wrist to wear. 

These gemstones didn't have a real color, but had I been able to really see them, they would have been moon color as well.

In my mind, I could not logically make sense out of wearing a bracelet that large as each individual piece was at least 1 inch long.  As I visualized this bracelet - it would have had 5 arcs of 5 gemstones.

After I woke up from this dream.  I had the same identical dream again.

Joe and I determined that if we start from this month's 1/4 moon which was April 8th, and counted 25 months of 1/4 moons, it comes out to May 8th, 2012. 

A reader suggested that 2 x 55555 =  111110

5-5-10 - DREAM  [ This dream has a dual meaning for me - in real life and in symbolism.

[This is funny - but a good reminder - I did this for a job for near onto 11 years, plus another 11 years in another place in real life]

DREAM - I was working for a large company and they were merging the 2nd floor division with the 1st floor division, and letting all the older female employees from the second floor go - *probably retire".

I was assigned a huge brown desk to work on, and then they started bringing me stacks of paper forms to work with.  They expected me to send out 175 bid forms for one items (which is ridiculous - you only need 3) - (we sometimes did 5 for a really big item that was new to us]  The stack they brought me was 7" wide - 7" high by 7" deep (a cube)

Another woman came to give me advice.  First she said I could go to the "Green Law Library" and look at examples of bid forms there.  Then she told me to I could use their filing system and look at the old bid forms used on the purchase orders that were generated from them.  (Like I don't know how that is done haha)

Then the head woman from upstairs (who actually had the old job)  came downstairs and was angry that I was given such a big desk because she had never been given such a big one.  I chalked that up to her being angry that she was losing her job.

Then she brought down a machine frame that was about 4 feet tall by 5 feet wide and it was painted bright blue.  That was the frame that the inquiry form got attached to to print it out.  [Who needs a sheet of paper that large?}  Maybe a blueprint - but not an inquiry form.

The men engineers were getting ready to go home,  and it became apparent that it wasn't such a good idea, because they wanted to go into dark empty rooms to talk to me and they looked like they were from Pakistan.  

At the end of the day, all the women gathered together and the woman who told me to go to the "Green Law Library", asked one of my friends if she could come over to her house and get some advice from her, which seemed a little odd at the time, and I felt a bit of jealousy because that woman was way younger than myself and I had way more experence.

3-6-10 -  VISION -  I saw a series of pinwheel type stars in pink and blue -  in a pattern 5 scross and 5 down (cube)  for a total of 25 stars.

3-6-10 - VISION - I saw a man wearing a tuxedo with a white shirt standing in a doorway.  He opened a door and my eyes flew open.

3-6-10 - VISION - I saw a brightly sunlit kitchen with many windows and a door with a window in it, and in the foreground closest to me, was \a table and on the table was a cage with two hamster wheels in it.  (There were no hamsters)

You can be sure we and others will be watching to see if any big quakes occur in August after the full moon, especially in California.

When looking at the numbers involved in these cubes, you will find that the 7 cube is the magic square of Venus,  and the 5 cube is he magic square of Mars.

It is possible to start with zero, instead of one, so that a possible 5x5 magic square is:  


 21      2      8    14    15

13    19    20      1      7

  0      6    12    18    24

17    23      4      5    11

   9    10    16    22      3  

Magic square of Mars


This particular version was taken from <>, which is an excellent website on the subject.  Included is a very brief, traditional history, which notes that “all magic squares have at least eight variations: the square can be rotated into four positions and each of these rotations can be reflected - for a total of eight variations of any one unique design.  Most magic squares do not remain magic if one border is moved to the opposite edge - the change leaves the main diagonal no longer magic.  However, translocation - repeatedly moving one edge across to the opposite side or the top to the bottom - does not affect panmagic squares which have, therefore, additional variations. 

“In a 5 x 5 square this is equivalent to moving the starting square through all twenty-five positions - for a total of 25 x 8 = 200 variations.  For the order 7 square, each pan-magic square has 49 x 8 = 392 variations and for the size 11 square there are 121 x 8 = 968 variations.”  He also notes that, according to his book on Magic Squares and Cubes, William Andrews describes the construction of panmagic squares of order 5, and predicts that the total number of possible panmagic squares of order five will be 28,800.”

old sarum crop  circle 2010

Herewith the first crop circle of 2010. It is in oil seed rape and measures approx: 180 foot diameter.  It is a circle containing six arcs intercepted by a small circle surrounded by a larger circle. A lozenge shape lies alongside the sixth arc with seven circles lying in an arc below.  It lies below the ancient Hill Fort Old Sarum in Hampshire.  Sadly due to the fact that it lies in Boscombe Military Air space it is also directly below the helicopter low flight approach zone, the images were taken from 2000 feet and also the crop is not yet in full bloom so the imprint is poor.

On further investigation, it would appear the positioning of the crop circle in relation to Old Sarum, actually lies on the direct path of a very well know Ley Line which has an alignment with Stonehenge, and cuts the nearside edge of the inner banks of the fortified encampment of Old Sarum. This Ley Line then straight through Salisbury Cathedral itself, and the hillforts of Clearbury Rings and then Frankenbury Camp in Hampshire.  

This clearly indicates that the positioning of Crop Circles could indeed be connected with Ley Lines, which are aligned to well known Ancient Sites. Are we being shown a doorway to ancient knowledge? Will we find the key in 2010?

old sarum ley line

The map-ley can be traced to a tumulus on Ibsley Common, but this is a cartographic error.

OLD SARUM LEY, Wiltshire/Hampshire

This is another classic alignment originating with Sir Norman Lockyer, though in this case we have modified the line by extending it to the S and marginally changing its angle. It runs for 181/2 miles NNW-SSE passing through Stonehenge.

The line starts N of Stonehenge at a tumulus (12004409) on Durrington Down, proceeds towards Stonehenge, which is just visible from the barrow, and crosses the Cursus on its way. It misses the sarsen circle at Stonehenge, but crosses ley SW7 on the edge of the earthwork just where the Avenue connects to it.

The ley continues SSE to Old Sarum (13823272) an impressive earthwork enclosure with extremely deep ditches. This is yet another example of an evolved site, having been an Iron Age hill-fort, then a Roman town which in turn was superseded by pagan Saxon occupation until finally, in medieval times, a hill town with a keep and a cathedral occupied the site. The cathedral was founded in the 11th century by St. Osmund. From the Norman ruins of the keep on Old Sarum a view down the ley shows the next two markers, Salisbury Cathedral and Clearbury Ring, in alignment. Early in the 13th century the site of the cathedral was moved, as a result of friction between the clergy and secular authorities, and a lack of water. Legend has it that Bishop Poore had a vision of the Blesses Virgin, who told him to build at a certain place. He didn't know where this was to be until informed by local people.

So Salisbury Cathedral (14312954) came to be founded on its present site. It is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The ley passes marginally to the E of the outstanding 404 foot spire which, according to the late Guy Underwood, marks an exceptionally powerful blind spring. On a number of occasions a fire alarm has resulted from the appearance of dense clouds of flying ants swarming around the spire, attracted like certain other creatures to blind springs which were taken for smoke. The spire also seems to attract the mysterious White Birds of Salisbury Plain - large albatross-like birds, dazzlingly white, which are said to appear whenever a bishop of Salisbury is dying. They were certainly seen in 1911, accurately foretelling the death of the then bishop.

When the cathedral was transferred from Old Sarum, the body of St. Osmund was brought down and placed in a shrine within the new building. There is also a tomb in the cathedral containing the body of the murderer Lord Stourton, who was hanged with a silken noose. For a long time a wire noose hung over the tomb but was removed in 1780. However, its luminous outline could still be seen, even 'within living memory by unimpeachable witnesses'. In 1967, a complete circle of red lights on a UFO was seen to hover one night over Salisbury, the bottom of the object 'on a level with the tip of the cathedral spire'.

Crossing Salisbury, the line goes through a crossroads near Odstock hospital and on to Clearbury Ring (15132443), where it passes through the NW corner of the earthworks. This Iron Age camp is wooded and can be seen for great distances as a clump, but the earthworks themselves are not particularly impressive visually. The area seems to attract UFOs. In 1957 a 'cylindrical object' was seen travelling E-W across the adjacent Odstock Down, and in 1967 a UFO was seen from the A338 about a mile S. of Salisbury.

Michell has observed that the line from Stonehenge to Clearbury is 19,800 (660x30) yards in length, exactly 30 times the length of twin geomantic circles he discovered over Glastonbury. The fact that this ley is virtually at the same angle as the Glastonbury ley (SW6) reinforces this correspondence.

Further to the SSE the ley passes alongside the remains of the 12th century priory at Breamore before running along the W earthworks of Frankenbury Camp (16611525), just over a mile E of Fordingbridge, in Hampshire. This early Iron Age semi-promontory fort, where no finds have yet been made, is easily approached by excellent public footpaths from Godshill. The area around Fordingbridge has a decided tendancy towards strange aerial phenomena. The Daily Express (14 January 1978) reported, for example, the sighting of a huge UFO by Mr. and Mrs. Stovold who, while driving near Fordingbridge, saw a UFO hovering at about 1,000 feet, twinkling with red and blue lights. They watched it for about 10 minutes before it glided away 'across the sky in a horizontal line'. The Guardian of 3 February 1978 reported that farmers around Fordingbridge were complaining of structural damage to greenhouses being caused by inexplicable 'loud and unexpected noises from the sky.' These seemed to occur regularly in the late evening, long after Concorde (that new 'explain-all' following in the tradition of 'Venus') had gone to bed. Coming so soon after the UFO sighting, it is difficult not to look for connections. In 1967 a V-formation of lights was seen near Godshill. The formation transformed itself into a cross-shape (there were a number of such sightings all over the country in 1967 see chapter 4). In 1974 bright lights were seen from Fordingbridge travelling SW to NE over the Wiltshire border. Concentrations of UFO sightings like this, over may years in one area, simply cannot be dismissed. This area, and others, clearly have some quality about them that enables strange aerial phenomena to manifest.

the number 153 are also related, such as 513. Note that 153 + 513 = 666,
and that 360 added to twice 153 = 666. I believe this "scary" number is
not simply "evil," but is related to mankind. The number is related to the
Magic Square of the Sun, based on the number six, as a 6 x 6 grid
with the numbers 1 through 36 in the boxes. Adding all the numbers
results in 666. Adding a row or column results in 111. The corner
diagonals add to 37 (1 + 36 and 6 + 31).

of the Sun

The crop circle formation that appeared at Old Sarum in 1992 may be somewhat similar in meaning, with the lower glyph as the Omphalos of Earth. It may well represent the frightening images that King Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream. In that sense, the lower glyph would represent the stone that shattered the image of the past ages and became the great mountain that filled the whole earth.

Old Sarum was known for a unique liturgical rite known as "Sarum Use" or "The Use of Sarum," which is based on the mystical-spiritual insights of St. Osmund and his assistants. Spiritual rulerships are assigned to each of the seven days of the week. This was expressed as votive masses. Astalea writes that "The Use of Sarum" contains a reflection of  profound knowledge of the Seven Rays; their qualities and purposes. .

Another megalithic sundial at Easton Royal

Note: These links are only available to members of

Easton Royal of June 12 seems to show another megalithic sundial such as Oliver's Castle of April 2007, or others described in "Four megalithic sundials: geometrical and astronomical analyses". This one may be of special interest however, because it shows a 12-month calendar as used sometimes in the ancient British Isles, rather than a 16-month calendar as shown in other crop sundials for example Avebury of June 21, 2003.  

The relative sizes of "balls" tell how far along the horizon any rising or setting Sun will "move" during each 30 or 31-day period. Such azimuthal motions become bigger when the Sun lies close to an equinox (0, 6, 12), than when it lies close to a solstice (3, 9).  

This sundial also matches a 12-month stone calendar told about in the Book of Enoch, that C. Knight and R. Lomas analyzed in their book Uriel's Machine (1999). East Field of June 3 likewise seemed to show a "triple sundial" resembling Yatesbury of July 22, 2001.



Let's start with 5-5-2000 because that was a huge concern and even books written about it.

Conjunction Assumption

April 2000
by Robert Novella

Now that we’re well into the year 2000 and Y2K fears have subsided, I thought I could relax and forget about impending global disasters. Not so, if an increasingly vocal crop of doomsayers are correct. Apparently, a planetary alignment that will occur on May fifth will wreak havoc on the Earth that will make crashing computers seem like a harmless virus. We are told to expect solar flares, force 13 earthquakes, 500 mph winds and tidal waves flooding our coastal cities. Massive planets lining up on one side of the sun may seem like an inauspicious event with dire consequences, but the astronomical facts that scientists deal with every day reveal it to be a relatively common and inconsequential event.

On May 5th 2000 the Sun and inner 6 planets of our solar system will (or did, depending when you read this) align starting with the Earth on one end, followed by the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and finally Saturn. Even the moon will be roughly between the Earth and Sun. This so called “Grand Conjunction” has many people extremely concerned about the potential effect this will have on our planet. The catch-phrase- “Beware 5-5-00” is even being used to echo this dread and attract newcomers to this latest apocalyptic meme.

The idea that planetary alignments can cause destruction on the Earth is not a new one. Records dating from 300 B.C. express fears similar to those found today. One would think that advances in astronomy and science would abolish such superstitious concerns but such beliefs are ubiquitous in first world nations as well as third. Predictions for the May fifth conjunction range from the astronomically uninformed to virtually incomprehensible. Here’s an example of the former from the Survival Center1 web site:

“On or around May 5, 2000 (give or take a few days) these planets … will line up on one side of Earth creating major stress on Planet Earth. Predictions range from a few earthquakes to major earth crust movement (slippage), polar ice cap movement, sea levels rising 100 – 300 feet or more, huge tidal waves, high winds 500 to 2000 mph, earthquakes so massive that Richter 13 or more could be possible, both coasts of USA under water, magnetic shift and much more.”

Most predictions about the May fifth alignment are similar to those expressed above, as such; the thrust of this article will address their feasibility. Other predictions I have encountered are so out there that I would not know where to begin when addressing them. The following is from Kirael’s Inward Portal2 web site:

“The Great Shift of May 5, 2000 marks the Day of Epiphany for the Earth plane when a great Light Shift will occur that will bring you out of darkness. It is a major shift for the Light Workers of the world when every Light Worker on Earth has the opportunity to shift their embodiment process to their Light Body. Your bodies will begin to lose their density, and you will begin to feel the body moving towards Light emergence. This Shift is the forerunner of the Golden Shift itself into the Fourth Dimension.”

Um, OK.

Alignments involving most of the planets are not exceedingly rare celestial events. They have happened many times throughout human history with no deleterious effect on Earth. A sampling taken between the years –3101 and +2735 reveal 102 separate planetary groupings of the 5 naked eye planets within 25 degrees (1994 De Meis and Meeus). This is an average of one every 57 years. When was the last time a conjunction like 5-5-00 occurred? On February 4th, 1962 when the 5 naked eye planets were separated by only 17 degrees. In conjunction with this conjunction there was also an eclipse of the sun. During this event the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles was besieged with inquiries about the ramifications of the event. During the day of the alignment the road leading to the observatory was clogged with cars for more than half a mile. The year 1821 saw a similar grouping, also with no concomitant disasters. In fact, no correlation has ever been shown between planetary alignments and events such as earthquakes and volcanic activity. The term “alignment” itself is somewhat misleading. The planets will not form a straight line (regardless of the many “artist interpretations” I have seen). The phrase “multiple conjunction” is more accurate.

Assessing past conjunctions is illuminating but the heart of the matter is the feasibility of loosely aligned planets having an extra effect on the Earth purely due to their relative mutual positions. The most often cited culprits of this extra effect are the combined gravitational pull of the planets and the tidal forces. These are the only ways that planets can affect us, so if these forces can be implicated, then doomsday arguments would be bolstered at least into the realm of possibility.

Gravity depends on only two variables; the mass of the object and its distance. The greater the mass the stronger the attraction, the greater the distance, the less the attraction (for the purposes of this discussion I will ignore Einstein’s General Relativity interpretation of gravity as the curvature of space-time). Isaac Newton altered physics forever when he realized that the strength of gravity depends on the square of the distance. For example, if you double the distance between two objects, the gravitational force drops by a factor of 4 (2 x 2). At 100 times the distance, the force drops by 10,000 (100 x 100). Even though gravity is the force that shapes the large-scale structure of the universe, it is extraordinarily weak. The inverse square law shows that not only is it weak, but what strength it does have drops off very quickly. The result is that to have a significant gravitational effect on the Earth, an astronomical body need be relatively close or absolutely gargantuan. This, of course, applies only to two bodies in our solar system, the moon and sun. All other heavenly bodies have a completely negligible gravitational impact on the Earth. Even titanic Jupiter, so large that 1000 earths can easily fit inside, is so far away that it has only 1 percent the pull of the moon. If you add all the other planets together, the amount is a paltry 2 percent. But wait, it gets weaker. During the conjunction of May 5th the Earth is on one side of the Sun and Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are on the other. This greater distance attenuates gravity to its absolute minimum.

The second most frequently cited effect of planetary conjunctions is a relative of gravity but has unique characteristics of its own. So called tidal forces are not strictly gravitational but involve the difference in gravity between two separate points. This differential force is more of a stretching than a pulling and as such has a greater potential for damage than simply pulling an object. Gravity has the potential of pulling the Earth from its orbit, tidal forces, on the other hand, can conceivably rip it in two. Earth’s tides are caused by the moon’s tidal forces. One way to look at it is that the ocean nearest the moon is pulled away from the Earth because it is attracted most strongly. The far side of the Earth is pulled least strongly so, in essence, the earth underneath is pulled away from it. Tidal effects are not limited to malleable water only, however. A slight but measurable bulge in the land itself propagates through the crust.

Fortunately, the same reasons that gravity failed to account for conjunction disruptions also account for the failure of tidal forces, only more so. Whereas gravity decreased by the square of the distance, tidal forces decrease by the cube. Twice the distance from a planet, therefore, lessens the force by a factor of eight. Consequently, distance is more crucial than mass when it comes to tidal forces. The sun’s gravitational pull on the Earth is 180 times that of the moon, however, the moon has twice the tidal effect on Earth because it is so much closer. The best way to look at this is to compare the ratio of the Earth’s diameter to the distance to the sun and moon. Since the ratio is much higher for the moon, the differential gravitational force will be a greater percentage of the total gravitational force.

The tidal effect on the earth from the other planets is therefore completely inconsequential regardless of their alignment. The planet Venus stretches us the most because it is closer to us, on average, than the other planets. The force, however, is 5 hundred thousandths that of the moon. The remaining planets contribute even less. This past December when the moon was full and unusually close, the additional tidal stresses on the earth were one thousand times stronger than all the planets combined. I don’t remember any doomsday predictions back then.

Doomsday planetary conjunctions seem superficially reasonable. People undoubtedly assume that when the planets line up the gravitational effects are magnified, conceivably causing earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. After all, this magnification of forces is like the spring tides during which the earth, moon, and sun line up to produce the highest tides twice per month. This bimonthly alignment, however, involves the only planetary bodies in the solar system that can affect the Earth given their size and distance. All the other planets are simply too far away. Any effect they might have is completely swamped by the sun and moon. Planetary alignments are common astronomical events and they can be beautiful, as in the case of eclipses, but one thing they have never been nor will they ever be is deadly.

What is a SuperMoon?

This year’s extreme declination SuperMoons look like an important theme for 2010. SuperMoon is a word I coined in a 1979 article for Dell Publishing Company's HOROSCOPE magazine, describing what is technically termed a perigee-syzygy; i.e. a new or full moon (syzygy) which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth (perigee) in a given orbit. In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth.

SuperMoons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet - including ourselves, of course. From extreme coastal tides to severe storms to powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the entire natural world surges and spasms under the sway of the SuperMoon alignment - within three days either way of the exact syzygy, as a general rule. SuperMoon solar eclipses tend to have a wider sphere of impact, extending roughly a week before and after the actual event. And other lunar extremes (of declination, for example) can extend the geocosmic stress window by a day or two here and there in any case.
2010 World Forecast

Obviously it won't be the case that all hell will break loose all over the world within a few days either side of the SuperMoons of 2010. For most of us, the geocosmic risk raised by SuperMoon alignments will pass with little notice in our immediate vicinity. This is a rather roomy planet, after all. But the fact remains that a SuperMoon is planetary in scale, being a special alignment of Earth, Sun and Moon. It's likewise planetary in scope, in the sense that there's no place on Earth not subject to the tidal force of the perigee-syzygy.

Examples of the SuperMoon connection with major storms and seismic events abound: the Mt. Pinatubo eruption, the largest volcanic event in the second half of the 20th Century, took place on June 15, 1991 (within three days of a SuperMoon); the October 6, 1948 Richter 7.3 earthquake that struck Ashgabat, Turkmenistan and took 110,000 lives, one of the deadliest earthquakes on record (again within three days of a SuperMoon, allowing for time zones); and the September 8, 1900 hurricane and tidal surge that struck Galveston, Texas on the day of a SuperMoon, which killed more people (8,000 dead) than any other Atlantic hurricane on record and remains the deadliest natural disaster yet to strike the United States. I'm just scratching the surface here, citing only a few historic instances in the past hundred years or so. Look a little deeper, and you'll run across literally hundreds more greater and lesser seismic and meteorological disturbances, from Hurricane Andrew in 1992 to the 1989 World Series (Loma Prieta) earthquake - just to name a couple contemporary notable examples.

The 2010 SuperMoons
First comes the full moon on January 30 at 10° 14’ Leo, followed by the February 28 full moon at 9° 58' Virgo). After a hiatus of several months, the SuperMoon train resumes with a trio of new moons starting with the one at 17° 25’ Leo on August 10, followed by the September 8 new moon at 15° 40’ Virgo, and then the one at 14° 24 Libra on October 7. (There won’t be another SuperMoon until February 18, 2011.)
The first SuperMoon of 2010 falls on January 30 at 10° 15’ Leo, when the full moon aligns with Mars in the sky (and Venus with the Sun). It’s also particularly potent, for a couple of reasons: it’s the closest SuperMoon of the year, and it occurs within just a few hours of the Moon’s northward crossing of the celestial equator. Expect a full litany of SuperMoon phenomena from January 25 through February 2: an increase in coastal flooding due to higher than usual tides, a gaggle of strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation (triggering inland flooding), and of course an up-tick in moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions).

The February 28 SuperMoon full moon at 9° 59' Virgo is an exception to the Mars-Venus theme this year, but it’s in the midst of the Red Planet’s close approach to Earth nonetheless. Consequently, I’m still expecting more than the usual rasher of rash behavior in February – just not tied so closely in time to this particular full moon. What I do expect is a newsworthy upsurge in moderate-to-severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes and volcanic eruptions), plus strong storms with damaging winds and heavy precipitation; along with extreme high tides. In effect from February 25 through March 3, and happening within sixteen hours of the Moon’s southward crossing of the celestial equator, this looks mostly like a storm and flood indicator – probably not on a par the January alignment, but noteworthy in its own right.
After a six-month lapse, a train of three SuperMoon new moons starts with the alignment at 17° 25’ Leo on August 10. (Venus and Mars are conjunct for this alignment.) This one has a wide effective geocosmic shock window, beginning on August 5 as the Moon’s north declination peak approaches; and continuing into the 13th. Expect the usual: strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation, unusual tidal surges, and of course a raft of magnitude 5 quakes and volcanic eruptions.

Next up is the September 8 SuperMoon at 15° 41’ Virgo, just a few hours before the Moon crosses the celestial equator from north to south – and with another Venus-Mars conjunction in effect, along with the Great T-Square. Expect the usual, during the geophysical stress window that runs from the 5th through the 11th: an upsurge in extreme tidal surges, severe storms and moderate-to-severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes and volcanic eruptions). No place on earth is beyond the reach of at least one such disturbance.
Finally comes the October 7 SuperMoon new moon at 14° 24’ Libra (conjunct Saturn), still with the Venus-Mars conjunction and also hard on the heels of the Moon’s southward equatorial crossing. The Venus-Mars connection again points to inflamed passions, manifesting anywhere along the spectrum from the lust and avarice of individuals to deadly violence both individually and collectively. We’ll all be glad when this one’s over. In effect from the 4th through the 10th, the October SuperMoon has a strong storm and seismic connection, so look for events of this sort to make more than the usual number of headlines worldwid


Conjunction (astronomy and astrology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Conjunction is a term used in positional astronomy and astrology. It means that, as seen from some place (usually the Earth), two celestial bodies appear near one another in the sky. The event is also sometimes known as an appulse.

The astronomical and astrological symbol of conjunction is ☌ (in Unicode x260c) and handwritten: Astronomical conjunction symbol.png

Three consecutive days of close conjunction between the Moon and Venus.

Passing close

More generally, in the particular case of two planets, it means that they merely have the same right ascension (and hence the same hour angle). This is called conjunction in right ascension. However, there is also the term conjunction in ecliptical longitude. At such conjunction both objects have the same ecliptical longitude. Conjunction in right ascension and conjunction in ecliptical longitude do not normally take place at the same time, but in most cases nearly at the same time. However, at triple conjunctions, it is possible that a conjunction only in right ascension (or ecliptical length) occur. At the time of conjunction - it does not matter if in right ascension or in ecliptical longitude - the involved planets are close together upon the celestial sphere. In the vast majority of such cases, one of the planets will appear to pass north or south of the other.

 Passing closer

However, if two celestial bodies attain the same declination at the time of a conjunction in right ascension (or the same ecliptical latitude at a conjunction in ecliptical longitude), the one that is closer to the Earth will pass in front of the other. In such a case, a syzygy takes place. If one object moves into the shadow of another, the event is an eclipse. For example, if the Moon passes into the shadow of Earth and disappears from view, this event is called a lunar eclipse. If the visible disk of the nearer object is considerably smaller than that of the farther object, the event is called a transit. When Mercury passes in front of the Sun, it is a transit of Mercury, and when Venus passes in front of the Sun, it is a transit of Venus. When the nearer object appears larger than the farther one, it will completely obscure its smaller companion; this is called an occultation. An example of an occultation is when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, causing the Sun to disappear either entirely or partially. This phenomenon is commonly known as a solar eclipse (though the term is a misnomer). Occultations in which the larger body is neither the Sun nor the Moon are very rare. More frequent, however, is an occultation of a planet by the Moon. Several such events are visible every year from various places on Earth.

 Position of the observer

The term conjunction primarily refers to a phenomenon defined only for the position of the observer, not just to a celestial relationship. However, e.g. for moon and sun observed from the earth, conjunction as a classifying term may apply both to the positions of conjunction (both sun and moon observed jointly in one direction or with similar ecliptical longitude) and to opposition (both sun and moon observed separately in opposite directions or with ecliptical longitude 180 degrees apart).

 Superior and inferior

Positional astronomy.png

As seen from a planet that is superior, if an inferior planet is on the opposite side of the Sun, it is in superior conjunction with the Sun. An inferior conjunction occurs when the two planets lie in a line on the same side of the Sun. In an inferior conjunction, the superior planet is "in opposition" to the Sun as seen from the inferior planet.

The terms "inferior conjunction" and "superior conjunction" are used in particular for the planets Mercury and Venus, which are inferior planets as seen from the Earth. However, this definition can be applied to any pair of planets, as seen from the one further from the Sun.

A planet (or asteroid or comet) is simply said to be in conjunction, when it is in conjunction with the Sun, as seen from the Earth. The Moon is in conjunction with the Sun at New Moon (or rather Dark Moon).

"Quasi-conjunctions" are also possible; in this scenario, a planet in retrograde motion — always either Mercury or Venus — will "drop back" in right ascension until it almost allows another planet to overtake it, but then the former planet will resume its forward motion and thereafter appear to draw away from it again. This will occur in the morning sky, before dawn; or the reverse may happen in the evening sky after dusk, with Mercury or Venus entering retrograde motion just as it is about to overtake another planet (often Mercury and Venus are both of the planets involved, and when this situation arises they may remain in very close visual proximity for several days or even longer). The quasi-conjunction is reckoned as occurring at the time the distance in right ascension between the two planets is smallest, even though, when declination is taken into account, they may appear closer together shortly before or after this.

 Notable conjunctions

Triangular conjunction formed by the Moon, Venus (left) and Jupiter, seen from São Paulo, Brazil, on 1 December 2008.
Moon, Venus and Jupiter formed a smile face :) seen from Eastern Asia


On 1 December 2008, Venus, Jupiter, and the crescent moon converge in a rare conjunction to form a tight triangle in the evening after sunset, visible worldwide. It was similar to a happy "V" face, or a frowning face.[1]


A very remarkable planetary/galactic configuration occurred on 23–24 December 2007. The configuration on December 23 — Mars, Earth, Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Galactic Centre — is shown in the graphic simulation linked below; it becomes even more remarkable in that it will be accompanied by the Full Moon (conjunct Mars) at about 2 a.m. on December 24 when a simultaneous Venus square Neptune occurs. It is even more remarkable in that the Pluto/Sun conjunction appears exactly on the Winter Solstice, just past conjunction with the Galactic Centre.

Link below is the view from Mars toward the Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Mercury, Pluto alignment toward the Galactic Centre on 23 December 2007 which occurs just after the Pluto/Jupiter (Heliocentric) conjunction on 23 November 2007. NASA Solar System Simulator for 23 December 2007

Solar System on 22 December 2007. What is not shown is Pluto (which would be to Jupiter's right) Saturn, which follows down from Venus, and Uranus and Neptune. Saturn and Neptune form the cross's t-member. It is a 23/12 configuration. There will be a full moon on 23 December 2007.


In late April 2002, a rare grand conjunction occurred; in which Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury were all visible concomitantly in the west-northwest sky, shortly after sundown; this will happen again in early July 2060, except that on that occasion the quintet will be bunched in the east-northeast sky, shortly before dawn.


In May 2000, the five brightest planets aligned within 20° of the Sun, as seen from the Earth. This could not be observed since they were too close to the Sun.


On August 24, 1987, the five objects closest to Earth — the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars — were within approximately 5° of one another, the Sun setting first, followed by Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon, in that order, within 20 minutes. As in the 2000 conjunction above, this event was unobservable due to the Sun being part of the line-up.


During the new moon and solar eclipse of February 4–5, 1962, an extremely rare grand conjunction of the classical planets occurred (it included all five of the naked-eye planets plus the Sun and Moon), all of them within 16° of one another on the ecliptic. At the precise moment of the new moon/solar eclipse, five celestial bodies (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) were clustered within 3° of each other, with the Earth in close conjunction with them. Taken in totality though, this grand conjunction included the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, with the Earth also in alignment with the Sun and Moon at the exact moment of the new moon/solar eclipse (eight celestial bodies in total).


During the new moon on December 2–3, 1899, a near-grand conjunction of the classical planets and several other binocular bodies occurred. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn were all within 15° of each other, with Venus 5° ahead of this conjunction and Jupiter 15° behind. Accompanying the classical planets in this grand conjunction were Uranus (technically visible unaided in pollution-free skies) Ceres and Pallas.
