I hope November is going well for you. For many the month has been dragging alone slowly and it’s felt like our minds we were moving through mental molasses. The energy levels have been fluctuating but it’s been mostly low thanks to Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. This particular Mercury retrograde in Scorpio has been intense. We find ourselves questioning our lives, relationships, meaning of life and delving deeper into our own psyche. Fortunately the cosmic winds are about to shift. On November 20th, the good vibes begin moving forward as Mercury turns direct after being retrograde since October 31st.
Events from this time may come to a close or you may find a new doorway, possibility, or awakening in regards to what has passed, especially in matters involving communication, travel, or technology. November 24th also continues the good vibes with Venus and Jupiter aligning at the exact same degree in Sagittarius over the Galactic Center. This is a beautiful, creative, and magical energy that will boost feelings of optimism and romance. From November 19th to the 24th, Jupiter will move across the Galactic Center, a pivotal and supercharged point in our cosmos. Here, Jupiter’s energy will be amplified, shining down abundance and sending waves of support our way. This won’t happen again for another 12 years or so, and it’s wonderful energy for spiritual development and for boosting positive energy.
What makes the Galactic Center so important is that we will also be aligning with the Cosmic Serpent. We live in the Milky Way Galaxy, which is a collection of stars, gas, dust, and a supermassive black hole at its very center. Our Galaxy is a spiral galaxy, which are rotating structures that are flat (disk-like) like a CD disc when looked upon edge-on.
(see image below).
Since our solar system lies in one of the spiral arms, we live in the flat plane of the Milky Way. We can actually see the dense plane of the Milky Way stretch across the sky in dark places that do not have a lot of surrounding light pollution. The diffuse light is the combined light from millions of stars. Some of the light from these stars are obscured by large clouds of dust, which is why there are dark patches. Dust and gas are necessary to form stars, and most stars are formed within the spiral arms. Note that we can’t really see the center of the galaxy with our eyes because there is dust in the way! The very center of the Milky Way is known as the Galactic Center. It has a unique collection of very exotic objects that have intrigued astronomers for many decades. Some examples include a quiescent supermassive black hole, a collection of wispy magnetic filaments, a few dense stellar superclusters which host mysterious and massive stars, and a family of gas streamers spiraling toward a central dark mass.
The constellation Ophiuchus (13th zodiac sign) falls along the ecliptic, the band of sky in which we find the Sun, Moon, and planets. The 12 constellations along the ecliptic are called the zodiacal constellations. Ophiuchus was not included in the zodiac because ancient astrologers considered the number 13 to be unlucky. But you still find solar system objects passing through Ophiuchus from time to time. The Sun itself lies among the stars of Ophiuchus from November 29 to December 17 each year, for example. Ophiuchus is visible in the mid-northern latitudes in July and August slightly south and west of overhead. In the mid-southern latitudes, the constellation is well above the northern horizon. The constellation spans more than 20°, more than the width of two fists held at arm’s length. Every year between November 22, and December 25, the Sun passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus, from our perspective here on the Earth.
Ophiuchus is that it is the only constellation in human form that resides in the direction of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. In galactic astrology, the center of the Galaxy is analogous to the Higher Self or the Jungian Self. It is only by transcending the “wheel of twelve” and allowing energy to spiral, resonant with the number thirteen, that we as humans, access and maintain a conscious connection to our Higher Self. The last Age of Ophiuchus was from about 4500 BC to 2500 BC.
What I find so interesting is the correlation between the Cosmic Serpent or Milky Way and what I discovered in the Nad Hammadi writings. The Nag Hammadi Library is a collection of thirteen ancient books (called “codices”) containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. This immensely important discovery includes a large number of primary “Gnostic Gospels” – texts once thought to have been entirely destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy” – scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth. The discovery and translation of the Nag Hammadi library, initially completed in the 1970’s, has provided impetus to a major re-evaluation of early Christian history and the nature of Gnosticism.
This line in the text that read (paraphrasing) “The Milky Way is a living, cosmic organism, a spiral-like body within which is our solar system. An intelligent cosmic light”
This is the Cosmic Light or energy we have been feeling for quite a while. Many ancient cultures understood the Cosmic Serpent/Milky Way was very important to man. If you look at the images below you will see they are one and the same. (see images below)
Now that the Serpent Holder has returned, we have the opportunity to “remember” and once again access ancient wisdom from that time and specifically wisdom related to “serpent energy”. To further understand this energy and “Who Are We Really” please watch my video presentation below from the 7th Seal Summit event I did in Sedona.
Until next time…Always Remember..You Are the Light friends!
Enjoy Your Journey,
