The Blood Moon Tetrad

moon

This coming Saturday(4-4-15) is number 3 out of 4 of the Blood Moon Tetrad (Tetrad meaning four) in the 2014-1015 season.  According to NASA, the shadow of Earth will completely cover the Moon which causes it to turn red. In Colorado where I live we will be able to see the “totality” beginning at 5:58 AM Mountain Time.  If you live on the East Coast you won’t be as lucky and will only see a partial ‘occulting’ or hiding of the Moon. Early-rising observers all over the United States should be able to see at least the partial phases of…

Comfortably Numbered

Fibonacci Pi Earth Moon Sun

The imperial system (miles, feet, yards, furlongs, nautical miles, etc) seems to resonate with repeating sixes.  Earth’s diameter is  6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6! miles.  6! is pronounced “six factorial” and is simply (1x2x3x4x5x6), which equals 720. The Moon’s diameter is 6! + 6! + 6! miles (2160).  Six-sixty-six is the number of the beast.  No number is inherently evil, but if you had to pick one it would definitely have to be six, which is why the word ‘hex’, means six. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number…

Mercury, Venus, Musica Universalis

Mercury and Venus Music of the Spheres

Mercury, Venus, Musica Universalis. The Music of the Spheres. The Musical Harmony of the Planets. Mercury makes beautiful music. If you’re on Mercury it takes two years to experience one day. This 2:1 ratio is what’s called the ‘perfect octave’ in music theory. It is also encoded into the geometry of a triangle. The circle inside a triangle is exactly one half the size of the circle outside it. Coincidentally (or not) the triangle also defines the orbital relationships between Mercury, and the next planet out, Venus. The perfect octave is the first harmonic interval followed by the ‘perfect fifth’…

Antikythera Mechanism

Referred to as the first known analog computer, the Antikythera Mechanism was discovered over a hundred years ago off the coast of Greece.   The mechanism is a device for calculating the motions of stars and planets.  Its true significance wasn’t realized until the early 70’s, when it was x-rayed and analyzed. The Greek astronomer Meton of Athens (fifth century BC) observed that a period of 19 years is almost exactly equal to 235 synodic months and, rounded to full days, counts 6,940 days. The difference between the two periods is only a few hours.  When we reduce these numbers to…

The Holy 108 – Earth Sun and Moon

108 Magic

108 is a sacred number in nearly every religion.  Hindu prayer mala’s are made of 108 beads.  There’s 108 names of God and 108 Chakras. Earth, Sun, and Moon are also linked to the Holy 108. It has been said that if one takes just 108 breaths in one day, they will reach enlightenment. “In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away” -Shing Xiong According to NASA, the Moon’s orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle and is more of an ellipse, so the Moon is not always…
