THE RETURN OF THE FEMININE
compiled by Dee Finney
|3-14-05 - DREAM - I was in high school with Antonio
Vega (from One Life to Live TV show and his companion who was an
attorney. It was the last afternoon before graduation. and the last 1/2
day of school. We were sitting there watching two women's group
advisors walk through a large room where all the girls met in their
various groups. It was their job to tell the groups of girls how to
behave and what to do.
Then we talked about going to school the next morning which was not a required day in school, but it was the last day during which the seniors walked around with their school annuals and got autographs from their fellow students and said their goodbyes.
The last day was actually a 1/2 day from 8 a.m. to noon.
We decided to look at the clock and see what time it was. The clock read twenty-five minutes past 11 (on an analog clock)
We couldn't believe that was the correct time and we went into a panic and jumped up to go find a different clock and see what the real time was.
We still had to take showers and get dressed for the last day of school and we weren't ready.
We went to the building where the showers were. It looked like a big old white barn. It was very roughly built of white vertical boards.
Someone in charge of the showers didn't want us to use the building and we were being barred from it. We were standing outside the building waiting to be let in. We didn't want to miss the last day of school.
. This is the position that Antonio Vega, his
companion and I
I was told in a previous dream that I originally came from Altair.

Cygnus, the Swan (the Northern Cross)
announced that the two giant clumps of dust in the ring surrounding the
star Vega may be planets. Vega is located 25 light years away in the
constellation Lyra and is the brightest star in the summer sky. The
planets are apparently trapped in this dust ring.
Observations of Vega in 1983 with the Infrared Astronomy Satellite provided the first evidence for large dust particles around another star, probably debris related to the formation of planets. This discovery likely inspired Carl Sagan to place the alien listening post at Vega in his novel "Contact." In our Solar System, dust particles created by asteroid collisions spiral in toward the Sun. The gravity of the planets affect the distribution of these dust particles.VEGA (Alpha Lyrae). One of the most famed stars of the sky, Vega is the luminary of the dim but exquisite constellation Lyra, the Lyre, which represents the harp of the great mythical musician Orpheus. Its name derives from an Arabic phrase that means "the swooping eagle." Vega is one of three brilliant stars that divide the northern heavens into thirds, the others Arcturus and Capella, and with Altair and Deneb forms the great Summer Triangle, lying at its northwestern apex. At magnitude zero, it is the sky's fifth brightest star, falling just behind Arcturus and just ahead of Capella. It is also one of the closer stars to the Earth, lying just 25 light years away. Though its proximity helps make it bright in our skies, it is also inherently luminous, 54 times brighter than our Sun. Vega is a classic white main sequence star, like the Sun quietly running off the nuclear fusion of hydrogen deep in its core, with a surface temperature of 9600 degrees Kelvin. Its color and apparent brightness made it the basic standard against which the apparent magnitudes of all other stars are ultimately compared. Because it is 2.5 times as massive as the Sun, it uses its internal fuel much faster and will burn out in less than a billion years, less than 10 percent of the solar lifetime. Vega was one of the first stars to be discovered with a large luminous infrared-radiating halo that suggests a circumstellar cloud of warm dust. Since Vega seems to be rotating with its pole directed toward the Earth, the dust cloud probably represents a face-on disk that may not be unlike the disk surrounding the Sun and that contains the planets. Several other stars similar to Vega (Fomalhaut, Denebola, Merak, for example) possess similar disks, and astronomers speculate that they may indicate the existence of planetary systems, though no planets have ever been detected. Even if they exist, it seems unlikely that life would have developed to any degree because of the short lifetimes of these hot stars.
THE MYTHOLOGY OF VEGA - AND THE LYRE
In the constellation of Lyra is Vega, which is the fifth brightest star in the sky. It is associated with the asterism known as the summer triangle. Vega (also known as Wega) draws its name from the Arabic word waki, translating in to English as eagle. This association with an eagle (or other birds of prey) remains in many mythological interpretations. The star is also known to be associated with the harp, or known as “the harp star”. It was given this name by first century Roman scientist Pliny the Elder.
Pliny’s name of the Lyre refers to the constellation as the harp or lyre as created by Hermes the Roman Messenger God. In the mythology, Hermes, son of Zeus the almighty, found an empty turtle shell, and found that it had wonderful acoustic sounds as he beat on it with a stick. He than affixed a number of strings taut across the opening of the shell, in a such a way that is was similar to stringed instruments we still use today.
After Hermes created the lyre, his brother Apollo, the Sun God came upon it. (Apollo is the God of music and a noted athlete.) There is more than one story to how Apollo got the lyre from Hermes. It could have been a trade, in which Hermes exchanged the harp for a golden scepter from Apollo, which he then used give wealth and prosperity to mortal men. A second version of the story tells that the harp is a gift from Hermes to Apollo, to quell Apollo’s anger with Hermes for attempting to take his cattle. (This crime Odysseus’ hungry crewmen paid with their lives).
The harp became a family heirloom and changed hands again when Apollo gave the harp to his son Orpheus. Orpheus, being a prodigy, mastered the instrument such that rocks, streams, and trees were enchanted by his music. He charmed the angriest of men and the wildest of beasts as well.
Orpheus' abilities served him well in winning the heart of Eurydice, the woman he romanced and wed. Some time after Euridice married Orpheus, she went walking in the fields with her sisters. A shepherd approached her, who was enchanted by her beauty. Eurydice tried to escape, but was but received a lethal bite of a poisonous snake.
Taking his harp with him, Orpheus went into the underworld hoping to retrieve his bride from death. While singing a loving ballad about his wife , he convinced Pluto to release Eurydice from the underworld, Pluto agreed that he would release her, only under the condition that Orpheus could not set eyes upon her until they reached the upper world. Orpheus had a hard time obeying that condition and took a look backward to see his beloved wife, breaking the rule set by Pluto, so Euridice had to return to the underworld.
After losing Eurydice a second time to the underworld, Orpheus stayed alone from women for the rest of his life. A group of young women who were trying to get Orpheus' attention decided that his lack of interest in them was not normal, struck him down with javelins and knives. They then dismembered his corpse because they were so enraged. Orpheus' head and lyre were tossed into a river that was nearby, and his arms and legs were buried in another location.
The story of the nine muses is that they carried the harp to the heavens, placing it among the stars. Zeus is also said to have sent a vulture forth to retrieve the harp from the river. The latter story seems to unite both the harp and the eagle associations with the constellation.
In an Asian story, the Star Vega is told as a "weaving girl", in a romantic relationship with a neighboring "herd boy", represented by Altair of the constellation Aquila. The two 'beings' in heaven neglected their duties and were then divided by the Celestial River, the Milky Way Galaxy.
|DENEB (Alpha Cygni). One of the truly great stars of
our Galaxy, Deneb serves a three-fold role among the constellations. Its
very name tells the first. "Deneb" is from an Arabic word
meaning "tail," as this first magnitude (1.25) star, the 19th
brightest as it appears in our sky, represents the tail of Cygnus
the Swan, a classical figure seen flying perpetually to the south along
the route of the Milky Way. As the constellation's luminary, the star is
also Alpha Cygni. The reversal of Cygnus makes the asterism of the
Northern Cross, with Deneb now at the top, the cross seen rising on its
side in early northern summer, standing upright in the west in early
northern winter evenings. Deneb also makes the western apex of the famed
Triangle, which also incorporates Vega
All three of these white class A stars (Deneb an A2 supergiant) have
similar surface temperatures, Vega, at 9600 Kelvin, the warmest, Deneb
radiating at 8400 Kelvin. Though Vega and Altair are really quite
luminous, they are first magnitude primarily because they are close to
us, averaging only 25 light years away. Deneb, on the other hand, may be
as far as 2600 light years. Based on that distance, its awesome
luminosity of 160,000 Suns
makes it about the intrinsically brightest star of its kind (that is, in
its temperature or spectral class) in the entire Galaxy. If placed at
the distance of Vega, Deneb would shine as bright as a well- developed
crescent Moon. Deneb is a true supergiant, its diameter, calculated from
its temperature and luminosity, is 200 times that of the Sun. Direct
measurement of its tiny angular diameter (a mere 0.002 seconds of arc)
gives a very similar value of 180 solar. If it were placed at the center
of our Solar System, Deneb would extend to the orbit of the Earth. While
far from the largest star in the Galaxy, Deneb is one of the biggest of
its kind. It is evolving and has stopped fusing hydrogen in its core.
Just what it is doing, however, we do not know. Having begun its life as
a star of some 25 solar masses, its fate is almost certainly to explode
sometime within the next couple of million years. The star is constant
in its light, but its spectrum, its light as seen when stretched into a
rainbow, is slightly variable. Blowing from its surface is a wind that
causes the star to lose mass at a rate of 0.8 millionths of a solar mass
per year, a hundred thousand times the flow rate from the Sun. Deneb is
among the most magnificent stars you can see with the unaided eye.
CYGNUS AND DENEB MYTHOLOGYHyginus tells that Zeus was fallen in love with the goddess Nemesis, but that she didn't want to have anything to do with him. To overcome her resistances, Zeus changed into a swan and asked Aphrodite to change into an eagle and to pretend to chase him. Nemesis, pitied by the escaping swan, gave him protection by taking him on her lap: too late she understood that in those borrowed plumes there was the king of gods.
Of this myth there is a different version, told by Heratostenes. He says that Nemesis, to escape Zeus' loving proffers, changed into many animals: but Zeus stubbornly pursued her, by changing each time into an animal which was greater and faster than hers. When Nemesis changed into a goose, Zeus assumed the features of a swan, finally succeeding in reaching her.
|ALTAIR (Alpha Aquilae). First magnitude (0.77) Altair,
the 12th brightest star in the sky and the Alpha star of Aquila
the Eagle, is also the southern anchor of the famed Summer
Triangle, which it makes with Vega
The Arabic name "Altair," reflective of the constellation
itself, comes from a phrase meaning "the flying eagle." Though
the constellation does not look much like its name, Altair itself is
flanked by a pair of stars (the Beta and Gamma stars Alshain
that really do remind the sky- gazer of a bird with outstretched wings.
The trio of stars has in fact been taken for an airplane with wing
lights slowly flying across the sky. Though three of the stars of the
Summer Triangle are all white in color and hotter than the Sun, all are
also individuals. A class A (A7) hydrogen-fusing dwarf with a
temperature of 7550 degrees Kelvin, Altair is the coolest of the three
(with Vega and Deneb nearly equal at 9500 Kelvin). Altair is also the
least luminous. From its distance of 16.8 light years, we find it to be
10.6 times brighter than the Sun,
as opposed to 50 times for Vega and an astounding 200,000 or so for much
more distant Deneb. Like the Sun and Vega, Altair is "on the main
sequence" of stars, fusing hydrogen into helium in its core. Yet
the star is not without its own striking characteristics. It is moving
across the sky against the background of distant stars more quickly than
most, and will displace itself by as much as a degree in only 5000
years. It is also a very rapid rotator. Its equatorial spin speed, while
certainly not a record, is still an astonishing 210 kilometers per
second (and may be greater, since the axial tilt is not known), as
compared with the Sun's 2 kilometers per second. With a radius 1.8 times
that of the Sun, the star has a rotation period of at most only 10
hours, as opposed to nearly a month for our ponderously spinning Sun.
Altair's high speed has even caused it to become distorted. Observation
with a sophisticated interferometer, from which the angular size of the
star is measured, reveals a 14% oblateness. Even with its high
rotational velocity, however, Altair is far from its rotational breakup
speed of 450 kilometers per second.
Altair has called "The King of Birds", "The
Rising One", "The Star
of Mighty Virtue", the "Armor-bearing
Bird of Jove" (Jove is the Roman Jupiter
or Greek Zeus), in this god's conflict with the giants. The English
called it "The Flying Grype".
In classical myth the eagle was the bird of Zeus who returned his master's thunderbolts and carried to him the souls of heroes. In The Royal Art of Astrology, Robert Eisler explains how, at the funerals of' Roman emperors, an eagle was lightly fastened to the top of the pyre so that as soon as the fire had singed its fetters, it would break free of its bonds and fly away - apparently bearing aloft the soul of the departed. The location of Aquila by the side of Aquarius, and its flight across the Milky Way towards the east was thus said by some classical authors to represent the ascension of Ganymede (identified with Aquarius) to Zeus. Modern scholars prefer the theory that this constellation's name was assigned when it was near the summer solstice - the bird of greatest elevation being chosen to assume the symbolism of the summit of the Sun.
The imagery of the eagle has always been identified with the qualities of strength, courage, nobility and dignity, which accords with Ptolemy's belief that its stars are of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. Manilius illustrates the Martian trait in his description of those born under its influence:
He that is born in the hour of its rising will grow up bent on spoil and plunder, won even with bloodshed … Yet, should perchance his aggressiveness be enlisted in a noble cause, depravity will turn to virtue, and he will succeed in bringing wars to a conclusion and enriching his country with glorious triumphs.
The main star, Altair, is named from the Arabic Al Tair meaning 'The Eagle'.Lilly, adhering to Manilius, says that this 1st magnitude yellow star represents "a bold, confident, valiant person, never yielding, guilty of bloodshed, of distempered manner,. &c ". But he also adds that when the Moon is directed to it there is fortune in great measure and a time of marriage and childbirth.
The other notable stars include Dheneb, a 3rd magnitude star which shines with a green glint and whose name comes from Al Dhanab 'The Tail'; Tarazed a pale orange 3rd magnitude star in the back of the eagle; and Alshain a 4th magnitude star otherwise known as 'the Eagle's neck'. The attributes of these stars are similar to Altair but, being of less brilliance, their influence is not so strong.
The Semitic language of the Arabs;
spoken in a variety of dialects Arabic words al-nasr al-tair, which mean the flying eagle.

|Note to the Reader: When I first had the dream, I went
onto the internet to look up the number 11:25. It was a 'time' on
a clock in the dream, but numbers in my dreams are usually referring to
the Bible so I typed in 'Bible 11:25'. The first link on www.google.com
was the verse John 11:25 which is Jesus talking about his own
resurrection to Martha at Bethany..
A few minutes later, Joe took a break from his computer and picked up the book Apokalypso by Thomas Jude Germinario. He had the page marked where he had left off and the exact point where he had stopped reading previously was also verse John 11:25 on page 332.
Then when I researched the star Vega, and saw the map of Vega, Denab, and Altair, I saw that the Star Denab, in the Northern Cross Constellation, which is part of Lyra Constellation including the other two stars called the "Summer Triangle" the Northern Cross is exactly placed as a clock hands would look at 11:25. Also, the placement of Vega, Denab, and Altair was exactly how the three of us in the dream were seated in the dream in relation to each other.
Coincidences like that are way too big to ignore. Most people will either just laugh and move on, but to us it is a clue to look further into the meaning. This page and the page about the three Marys which is linked below is the result.
There are many lessons to learn in life - and these coincidences lead to them if we but look.
The Three Mary's:
From: Apokalypso: Prophecies of the End of Time by Thomas Jude Germinario:
Page: 331: St. Martha, who is, traceable back to the tiny hamlet of Les Stes. Maries-d-la-Mer. Local Tradition holds that St. Martha landed on this remote Provencal shore in the year 45 AD, accompanied by the "three Mary's". The 'three Marys" were Martha's sister Mary Magdalene, Mary Jacobe, mother of James the younger, and Mary Salome, mother of John the Evangelist and James the elder. As the folklore has it, Martha and the three Saints Mary were forced to flee the Holy Land in a small boat, sans sail, oar, rudder, or food - but with the Lord's protection, thanks to which they made port near Marseilles. Most versions of the story add Martha's brother Lazarus, who Christ had raised from the dead, and Joseph of Arimathea, in whose tomb Jesus' body was laid - along with a twelve-year-old mystery girl named Sara - to the boatload of holy exiles who disembarked at Les Stes. Maries-de-la-Mer.
All three women were beloved companions of Christ who had followed and served him since the beginning of his ministry in Galilee. At the hour of Jesus' Passion, when virtually all of his male disciples were hiding in fear for their own lives, the three Marys courageously stood by him at Golgotha as recorded in the gospel of St. Mark. And Mark's gospel also bears witness to the singular honor conferred upon the three Mary's as the first to whom his Resurrection was made known.
It was the faith of the dead man's sisters. Martha and Mary Magdalene, which brought this definitive miracle to fruition:
Jesus said unto her, "I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believeth in this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord." John 11:25-27
Page 333: Our Savior ascends into Eternal Reality from our of the Cup of the Female principle, upon which has descended from the Holy Spirit. He is truly, as St. Gregory envisioned him, "a man encompassed by a woman". This is the sublime purport of the Grail that heresy strives relentlessly to pervert and obscure. Hence, the sisters of Lazarus stand for the archetypal Sister-Bride, in whom is preserved the collective Life of humanity. Their brother, the lapsed Male principle, lies "four days dead." - corresponding to Mani's four "Great Months". In the affirmation of the Sister-Bride - in the 'Yea, Lord" spoken by Martha in Bethany - is realized the Redemption of fallen Man. In the opening of the feminine gate through which the Infinite form of the new Adam may emerge upon the plane of manifestation.
But there are those, unwittingly inspired by the Shadow of the dead Adam, who would prefer their Messiah to appear as a temporal king. And appear he will. His coming is foreshadowed in the very next passage of Mark's gospel following the excised tale of Lazarus. There we read of the "sons of Zebedee" - that is, the sons of Mary Salome' - demanding that Christ promise to appoint them his chief ministers, when he assumes the throne of Israel. Jesus' stinging rebuke to Mary's sons should ring in the ears of the "Christian' hypocrites of our times who seek to wrap themselves in his garments as they pursue political power.
Leadership with service
When the other ten heard this they began to feel indignant with James and John, so Jesus called them to him and said to them,
"You know that among the gentiles those they call their rulers lord it over them, and their great men make their authority felt. Among you this is not to happen. No, anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave to all. For the Son of Man himself came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10: 42-45
|Joe Mason writes on the feminine aspect of
We love synchronicity and coincidence. Dream interpretation books may be helpful to some, and we look at various opinions. Dreamers can find the symbol meanings by checking a number of ideas, and thinking it over carefully. Our own interpretations are often different from standard ones, and we give opinions as an additional source to consider. We hope others will contribute to the interpreting.
It is fun to follow the path of dreams and attempt to put a few puzzle-pieces together. The idea of categories of dreams (garbage, prophetic, diagnostic, universal, etc.) has been around for a while. The Greeks spoke of dreams that come through either the Gate of Ivory or the Gate of Horn, depending on if they are true or false. I read of another grouping about two days ago - basically three divisions for daily life things, thought/concepts type things, and the big spiritual type of dream.
The "masculine-feminine.PRINCIPLE, the brain hemispheres, DNA, etc., are entirely supported by people's dreams. Prophecies can be exaggerated, especially the gloom and doom prophecies. There is flooding, earthquakes, fires, but they are minor in scope compared to the dreams and seem to be mainly symbolic. The trend is that some of the disasters do happen, but they are much more minor than expected. But, the symbolism, is quite big and important. It's all about the changes happening. It is an "inner" thing, which will be manifested more slowly in time. Some of the events are on another plane and do not necessarily manifest in the physical realm.
I realized that one's wife, in a dream, can refer to the feminine aspect of the self, the dreaming, intuitive, right-brained aspect. Various dreams and myths have a theme where the male and female are separated in some way. For example, in the East Indian story of Rama, the hero must battle the evil demon and the Titans who are holding his wife, Sita, captive. After a long struggle, Rama and his warriors, with the help of the Monkey King, defeat the opponents, and he is re-united with Sita.
The feminine aspect can change in various ways, just as the East Indian Goddesses have various "aspects." I feel this may be why Nancy, in the dream, went upstairs, only to be downstairs - outside, after I descended the stairway. This seems to be showing two aspects of Nancy, and/or my own feminine aspect.
A dream of a woman in red, represents Kali, who corresponds to the harlot of Revelation 17. She is one of many aspects of the Mother Goddess, Sakti. With each cycle change, there is apparently a change in the feminine aspect. Dreams seem to give hints about the change from the Kali/harlot stage of spiritual evolution to the age of the Holy Spirit.
I had a dream in June 1991,
I saw a "Y"-shape that was also a woman's body where the legs meet. Three energy lines moved from the center, two outward and one downward. Then I saw it again but this time there were just the two outward energy lines. As I saw this, a voice said: "Some say there are three ways of unfolding the world. We say two".
The Barbury Castle triangular formation appeared the next month, although I did not know about it until September 1991.
I found this quite amazing, because the meaning of the Chinese Great Y has a very similar meaning. The downward-pointing, central triangle of the Sri Yantra is related to the feminine aspect of Deity, and related symbolically to the "yoni," which means vagina.
A booklet from the Anthroposophic Press offered "The Spiritual Event of the Twentieth Century," by Jesaiah Ben Aharon. It tells of "the occult significance of the 12 years 1933-45 in the Light of spiritual science. The ad states, "Since the beginning of the Michael Age and the end of Kali Yuga, two central spiritual influences stream increasingly into the consciousness of man.
The first is the Michael power, which guarantees the new human faculty of pure, logical thinking and individual experiences of freedom, and the second is the new supersensible perception that has enabled man to perceive the appearance of the Christ in the etheric realm since 1933."
Page 11 tells of "From Jesus to Christ," by Rudolf Steiner. He says there is an awakening to the new revelation in our time: "Christ as the Lord of Karma."
Page 39 tells of "Sophia: The Wisdom of God," by Sergis Bulgakov. He shows how "the Divine Sophia, in whom all things are created, is present in the Holy Trinity itself and how, as the 'creaturely Sophia' she works together with Her divine counterpart in the work of the Holy Spirit for the redemption of the world."
This fits my view of things, and helps clarify things. The "Y"-shape in the Barbury Castle pictogram is the Mother Deity and seems to be Sophia, or other Mother Deity names. The Holy Spirit is the southwest circle, which is an aspect of the feminine Deity within us, and within each consciousness unit. The two are represented as Mother and Daughter. Kali is an aspect of the Mother Deity, the aspect operating in this karma/judgment time cycle. It reminds me of "tough love," a method of getting young, rebellious kids to conform to the rules of the society.
In relation to the above, see:
The son in the Trinity is often represented by an androgen, having male and female attributes. Mercury, and his Greek counterpart, Hermes, have this. One representation is a key and keyhole, which appeared on the west and east of the 1992 Dharmic Wheel (or Charm Bracelet) crop formation. There was a triad glyph as the eighth step, which was similar to the Barbury pattern. At the center was a circle inside a quartered circle, which Michael Green said is the god, Bel, the Light behind the light. Bel was a name given to Marduke, which means, "Lord." He was also a son in a Trinity.
Prior to Barbury, I wrote a speculation that Adam and Eve represent One person, with the dual aspects, based on dreams. The primary dream was told to me by a co-worker. He was on a starship in space, and a VERY important message was about to come in. But, it could not come until he ejected the garbage first, which he then did. A doctor appeared, and led the crew into a bedroom. He began working on a yard-high mound of a jelly-like substance at the foot of the empty bed. Suddenly, the dreamer saw a human-sized hand puppet, a male/female pair, with only one hand-hole. They fell back into a vat of water, and he knew they HAD to change.
Shortly thereafter, I read "The Gnostic Gospels." One of the early Christians had a vision that Adam/Eve are one person.
Some years later, I found H.P. Blavatsky's "Isis Unveiled," vol. 2. She shows the relationships involved in the concept of the Trinity, from various cultures, which she traces back to ancient India. She calls Adam/Eve the "First Androgen."
She shows some basic forms of it. The first is a Father and Mother with a Son, who is androgen. Next, comes the Triple Male Trinity. They have female "Consorts," that are usually composited into one feminine Deity. Together, they are "The Perfect Four." In the Babylonian system, it is Anu, Bel, and Hoa (the moon). The feminine Deity is Mylitta or Ishtar. According to Blavatsky, the feminine Deity in the Christian Trinity is the Virgin Mary.
After reading this, I got a book called, "The Four Gospels," a translation of four of the Gnostic Gospels found at Nag Hamadi. One was "The Secret Book of John." He had a vision about the Creation. A Father/Mother/Child spirit appears and explains. The Father created the Feminine First Power. She produced "the triple male."
Page 276 of Sacred Symbols of Mu shows another triangle glyph, with the letters A, U, and M, in the corners, which is more than 2,300 years old. The ancient Hindu book, Manava dharma Sastra, states:
James Churchward continues . . .
The concepts conveyed in The Tantric Way speak of the vibration "as sound." This seems to be related to the chant, "Om," or "Aum."
By the time I found The Tantric Way in early 1993, I had come to realize that symbols of the male-female duality were quite major in dreams and crop circle formations. The duality, in my research, seemed to be related to the concept of the Trinity, in terms of Father, Mother, and Son. The Son aspect, it seemed, had a dual, male-female nature, as well.
The six-petal daisy came to me through dreams, as it is made up from interlocking circles in a ring. It has appeared many times in various forms as a crop formation. In my case, it also represented a closed aperture, like that on a camera. The north sun symbol in the Barbury Castle formation was similar. My dream-coincidences indicated that it would open, letting in the Seventh Ray on the Seventh Day of Creation (we are not Man yet). It is the Lost Pleiad of the Pleiades, and the Angel that rises from the Dawning Sun in Revelation 7, to mark the foreheads. (those who have stayed awake).
The Hopi depict a 12-petal sun flower in their Creation myth of Spider Grandmother. She teaches us how "to weave" after the fourth step (Heart chakra), and emergence into the Sunlight. Tantra, in Sanskrit means, "to weave." The Lotus of the Heart has 12 petals, and I believe it is related to the New Jerusalem.
That same year, a six-petal pattern appeared with smaller circles around the major one, which produced a Star Of David in the center. A strong clue, as I see it, of the apature opening, and the leap to the Heart Chakra by humanity en mass.
Dave is transformed into a baby (re: Rev. 12) in a bubble, heading back to earth. A new cycle of evolution is about to begin.
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 Day Break 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 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.
The facts of Princess Diana's life and death are well-known to us all, so I shall not dwell overly much on them here. The thoughts that follow are a tentative attempt to come to terms consciously with what has undeniably been an archetypal event of tidal wave proportions. It has splashed millions, if not billions of folk emotionally and mythically - particularly those who are open to being so touched through dwelling near the ocean - the foremost symbol of the unconscious. Only those in emotional deserts, or in psychological graves, or on unreachable mountain-tops, it seems, have remained immune; indeed, many have been surprised, even caught off-guard by the depth of their personal response. The entire tragedy has, I believe, given further impetus to what Jung prophesied would be the incoming dominant of the emerging Aquarian Age, Eros, the feminine principle of relatedness. (Perhaps it's no coincidence, then, that the Aquarian Age, in one astrological system of dating, begins 'officially' in 1997). At the same time this event has placed, ironically through a death, another nail in the coffin of the waning Piscean dominant of patriarchal hierarchy and its distantly enthroned God.
THE VINE OF THE LORD
Many biblical passages use the word vine as a metaphor for the chosen people of God. "A vine thou didn't bring out of Egypt" (Ps. 80:91), "The vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the House of Israel and the mean of Judah are his cherished plant" (Isa. 5:71) Several passages refer to the vine as feminine. "Thy wife is like a fruitful vine" (Ps. 128); "Your mother is like a vine planted by the water, fruitful and branchy... but she was torn up...and now she is planted in the desert...she is now without a royal branch, a ruler's scepter" (Ezek. 19:10-14) This transplanted royal vine is understood by biblical scholarship to refer to the royal Davidic line of Judah, the line of the princes.
The Bride in Canticles carefully tends the vines. In Isaiah 5, the rebellious vineyard brings forth wild grapes. Psalm 80is a prayer for the restoration of the vineyard. "Take care of this vine and protect what your right hand has planted." In Mark's Gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the vinedressers, caretakers of the vineyard (Israel) who beat the servants of their master when they came to inspect the condition of the vines and then killed the master's son. No one who knew Jesus of Nazareth and who "had ears to hear" was in any doubt as to the identity of that 'faithful son". He was the legitimate heir to the vineyard of Judah.
The transplanting of the Davidic "vine" would have come as no surprise to the Zealot fundamentalist friends of Jesus. They knew it had been prophesied (Ezek. 17). It had happened before, when the people of Israel were taken as slaves to Babylon. But it could also happen again. in light of the danger to the vine of Judah, the royal bloodline, it is likely that the friends of Jesus took strong and perhaps desperate measures to protect the family of Jesus. It would have been their top priority."

Kiara Windrider says: The Egyptian calendar pointed to
September 17, 2001 as a time for planetary initiation (See Moira Timms,
Beyond Prophecies and Predictions). The tragic events of September 11
unfolding with the Twin Towers and Pentagon attacks sent ripples of
shock across the world, setting off a great chain of consequences that
continues to build. Could these two events be related somehow?
On May 5, 2001, Dee Finney had an incredible vision during meditation that is related to the above writing:
THE LEGEND of SARA
A medieval legend insists that there was a "dark child" on
the boat, a child who is called "Sarah, the Egyptian." Ii is
speculated that she might be the daughter of Magdalene for several
reasons deeply rooted in the Hebrew Scriptures. She might be
symbolically "dark" for reasons associated with the
"hidden" bloodline of the princes of Judah, whose appearance,
described as "brighter than snow and whiter than milk," is now
"blacker than soot, they are unrecognized on the streets"
(Lamentations 4). "Sarah" means "princess" in
Written traces of the "Grail heresy" of the bloodline of
Jesus in Europe cannot be found until the Middle Ages, but folk tales of
the little lost princess are much older. Is this "folk memory"
the custodian of a suppressed and hidden truth? Or was it only a
"myth," a story too dangerous to be told? Among others, Emma
Jung, the wife of the famed psychologist Carl Jung, and their friend
Marie-Louise von Franz, believe that the oral tradition of the "sangraal"
("blood royal" in Old French) circulated in Europe throughout
the Dark Ages.

The Second coming: The Second Coming is not a return of Christ but a new arrival of female presence..one that is strong, loving, divine, wise and powerful.
Sacred geometry is subtle. It uses shapes (circles, triangles, spirals, etc.) that work subliminally on the unconscious mind. It also uses archetypal symbols, numerology, cosmology, astrology and mysticism to foster a relationship to the universe and to God.
