Linda Moulton Howe recently published a brilliant three-part article on a series of crop circles that appeared this spring. Between April 14, 2009, and May 10, 2009, eleven crop formations were reported in the flowering rapeseed fields of Wiltshire County, England. She interviews an anonymous Australian astrophysicist who describes how some of the crop patterns contain astronomical information about the potential for increased solar flares and coronal mass ejection (CME) activity during the apogee full moon period in July.
This is big news for anyone following the solar maximum and minimum cycles of the sun. I have been watching these cycles because I noticed that I tend to feel better when the sun emits a CME -- perhaps the active photons wake me up or messes with the Lyme's spirochete nestled in my cells? This solar minimum of cycle 23 has been a real drag for me, literally. In fact it is one of the "deepest" solar minimums on record with 266/366 (73%) days without a sun spot in 2008. Today www.spaceweather.com posts the total for 2009: 115 days (86%) without sunspots. So since the beginning of solar minimum there have been 626 days without sunspots, compared with the typical 485. This week the sun had a new spot, 1017, and it could signal the long-awaited beginning of the next solar cycle 24.
Many solar scientists expected this new sunspot cycle to be a bigger than anything we've seen before and warnings of gigantic CMEs that could fry satellites and raise hell with earthly communications, the power grid and modern electronics, were predicted. But according to some scientists, there’s scant proof Sunspot Cycle 24 is even here, let alone the debut of big trouble. So far there have been just a couple minor spots on the face of the sun to suggest the old cycle is over and the new one is coming.
The roughly 11-year cycle of sunspot activity should have bottomed out last year, the end of Cycle 23 and the beginning of Cycle 24. That would have put the peak in new sunspot activity around 2012. On May 8, 2009 the Space Weather Prediction Center at NOAA posted:
May 8, 2009 -- Solar Cycle 24 Prediction Update The Solar Cycle 24 Prediction Panel has reached a consensus decision on the prediction of the next solar cycle (Cycle 24). First, the panel has agreed that solar minimum occurred in December, 2008. This still qualifies as a prediction since the smoothed sunspot number is only valid through September, 2008. The panel has decided that the next solar cycle will be below average in intensity, with a maximum sunspot number of 90. Given the predicted date of solar minimum and the predicted maximum intensity, solar maximum is now expected to occur in May, 2013. Note, this is a consensus opinion, not a unanimous decision. A supermajority of the panel did agree to this prediction.
2012 theorists may be disappointed with this shift in solar maximum date, but as evidenced by experience, human understanding and recognition of the "pattern" may be limited. And the years leading up to 2012 may have more shifts than 2012 itself.
The anonymous Aussie astrophysicist makes an interesting case regarding the astronomical information contained in the crop circles: "In these 2009 progressions of crop patterns so far, it seems like the circle makers are describing a combined ‘solar flare and coronal mass ejection’ on the apogee full Moon of July 7, 2009." The crop circle makers even distinguish the apogee position which occurs 12 hours after the full moon. "The May 9, 2009, pattern at Peak's Down (apogee-perigee) seems to suggest that several CMEs might pass as close to Earth as lunar orbit.”
The May 10th crop circle has been interpreted as showing a double solar flare.
And it reminds me of the "angry" sun on the Cross of Hendaye discussed so eloquently by Jay Weidner in The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye; Alchemy and the End of Time. According to Weidner, the angry sun of the cross of Hendaye may be an alchemical symbol for a massive solar flare that hits the earth and causes cataclysmic events that signals the end of the Kali Yuga.
The full moon and apogee astrology charts are interesting to consider in light of these crop circle messages. The full moon will be in Sagittarius, in the nakshatra Purva Ashada with the sun residing in Gemini, in the nakshatra Punarvasu. This full moon brings in the power of invigoration, varchograhana shakti. Purva Ashada means undefeated and it is often called "the invincible star". Its deities are associated with cosmic waters and rain, Apas/Varuna. This full moon will also be eclipsed by the shadow of the earth. Yes, all this occurs on a penumbral lunar eclipse. But the moon will not be in the same sign as the north node, Rahu, until the Apogee 12 hours later. This line up occurs in the Nakshatra Uttara Ashada, the "universal star" (on BO's dasha and chart rulers) again granting unchallengable victory, apradhrisya shakti.
Given the nature of the solar predictions encrypted in the crop circles, it seems wise to also look at the condition of the sun during this lunation and eclipse. Punar means "repeat" or "again" and vasu means "ray of light". It is called the "star of renewal" and represents the return of the light to the soul. Could it perhaps also indicate a renewal of solar cycles? Aditi, the mother goddess, is the ruling deity of this nakshatra. She is the earth goddess who grants all abundance and gives birth to all the gods, vasutva prapana shakti, the ability to gain wealth or substance. Will the full light blessing from the sun be able to touch the moon without the shadow of the earth interfering? We shall see.
