29.11. 13:18 Lady NewMoon in Ophiuchus: Secrets Inside

…last night, while you where asleep, La Luna entered the mystically Scorpius. Since just a little piece of this large constellation touches the ecliptic, in just a few hours her visit in Scorpius is short – she enters the secrecy of the constellation Ophiuchus and will meet up with Sol for a NewMoon at 13.18h today.

Sol has left her short travel through Scorpius and enters Ophiuchus at 16:54h.

M o o nSurfer: The Astronomology of the Aquarian Age

The Astronomology of the Aquarian Age

Astronomology?!

To explain you the accurate sight of reality, it requires a time journey into the past. More specifically, we are talking about the facts of a spiritual crime. An energetic amputation. The cosmic “Dom Perignon” of a fraud. Powerful and so refined that the fatal consequences later, all imagination of a man who truly exceeds, oversized.

In all ancient civilizations there were the mysterious celestial phenomena, which exercised an incredible fascination to the people. Marked bone discovered from the Ice Age, show that at that time the path of the Lady Moon (yes, she is a woman) already pursued … backdated 32,000 years!

In Europe, as the deep Middle Ages tedious drawing to a close and mankind crawled slowly awoke from the dogmatic /Christian/medieval coma, they were no longer sufficient, the Christian revelation. They wanted more. They wanted to reach for the stars again. Countless new, even scientific/spiritual and medical effects, triggered by growing “globalization/world trade” (as you see, this is not a new invention) and the Crusades, paved for the awakening era of mysticism, the way.

The ideas of the universe of Aristotle were packed with the Christian worldview and let’s say, manipulated. The earth was declared a disc and the center of the cosmos.

Astrology experienced a wedding and is, as example, taught in medical school in Bologna and many other universities. An integral part of the society it was. The astrology. Calculations of astronomers learn new knowledge, became more precisely and the calculations of the planets still served as real basics for horoscopes.

The “chosen” Zodiac with 12 Zodiac is written in so many churches and cathedrals in stone and Astromagicians such as Michel de Notre Dam – Nostradamus – achieved cult status. This Astromagicians were what we now call “Supertstars”. But they were also high authorities. Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo, those were the astronomers and astrologers! After that, astrology is lured into for me, incomprehensible direction. She was deprived astronomical, real calculations.

Take the well-known 12-starsign Zodiac, minus the real astronomical calculations and brand all zodiac sign with an identical size (30 °). One size fits all?! Like all people have the same shoe size… Thus, the astrological calculations do not cover the real astronomical sky events, except, yes, except there are a few “lucky shots”. That is why almost all Astrologers say, that sometimes Astrology works, sometimes not.

Take the example of the constellation Aries.

According to all available astrological ephemeris (lists the planetary positions/ Astro calendars/unar calendars)

Sol (the sun) surfs at 20:04. until 20.05. through the Aries.

In real terms, whether with telescope, binoculars, observatory, magnifying glass or a astronomical Stellarium for the PC, you’re not going to watch the movement of Sol (sun).

Because it reaches the real Aries at 19:04. and leaves it real on 14 May.

The REAL zodiac sign dates and ophiucus / serpentarius as well!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKNQ8csESfw

Good video, but it still lacks Orion, Cetus and Sextant.

This means that the fanciful calculations of the fictitious mass astrology shoot over the top and the calculations about the transiting planets of the constellations (and for each planet/the details of the retros, the decline of the planet, are also not correct) off the mark, and not coincides with the real starry sky.

So Pluto is not in Capricornus right now. Sidereal (in real terms) he travels till 2024 in Sagittarius.

All constellations – and for me there is no zodiac sign – but constellations, have in real terms, different sizes.

This can also be seen with the traveling of the wonderful Lady Moon, if one uses the astronomical calculations. It’s the scientific foundation laying scientific foundations.

Every modern conveniences lunar calendar teaches that the Lady Moon travels 2 to 3 days through one starsign. But astronomical observations and calculations show, however, that the Lady Moon travels between a few hours and four days through a sign. In a small constellation, such as the Cancer, she is done in a day (others like Scorpius or Sextant, she is done in a few hours) and in the Pisces/fish for example, it is about 3 to 4 days, that it needed in order to travel through.

The details of Full and NewMoon in the lunar calendars, are covering with the astronomical calculations (a rogue, who thinks evil because of this ….) – But the constellation figures do not coincide. Except, yes except for the “flukes” or “lucky shots”…

The Mo o nSurfer Astronomology

combines the real astronomical calculations with astrology, which has a much higher success rate. This is also called:

Sidereal Astrology.

Basically M o o nSurfer-Astronomology “lags” the fictional “astrological” Zodiac reality behind her. In my view, Astrology should be expanded to include some major constellations of the common “Zodiac”.

A 13th Zodiac sign?

No, not 13 constellations.

But 16 constellations.

In almost every astronomical calculation of planet/sun/Lady Moon in the different constellations, you can find the Cetus, Sextant, Ophiuchus and Orion. So why our unrealistic and outdated astrology not at last be “upgraded”?

This corresponds to the revolutionary reforms which is the awakening Aquarian Age in our hands! Reforms today, in the here, the now, bringing incredible results for today, tomorrow and the future.

That’s Uranus in Pisces until the beginning of 2018 and Neptune in Aquarius till spring 2022.

Astronomologischer constellation circle

Zodiac of the IAU (International Astronomical Union)

In 1928 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) put the limits of – 88 sidereal constellations – precise.

The astronomical data of the passage of Sol (sun) through the 16 sidereal constellations (approximate values, fluctuating due to the length and shifts annually one day / one sidereal year):

Fish / Pisces: March 12-19th April Cetus: 21 / 22:03 and 28.03. (Sol in fish / Cetus / fish / Cetus and again fish) Aries / Aries: April 19-14th May Taurus / Taurus: May 14-21st June Skychaser / Orion July 19 – JULY 21 Gemini / Genmini: June 22-July 18 Cancer / Cancer: July 21-August 10 Leo / Leo: August 11-16th September Sextant 04:09. – 5:09. (Sol in Leo / Sextant and again Lions) Virgo / Virgo: September 16-31st October Libra / Libra: October 31-23rd November Scorpio / Scorpius: November 23-30th November Ophiuchus / Ophiuchus: November 30-18th December Sagittarius / Sagittarius 18 December 20th January Steinbock / Capricornus: January 20-16th February Aquarius / Aquarius: February 16-12th March

The Native who were born at the transition to the next data Constellation have, logically combines the energies of both constellations in themselves and are so to speak, a cosmic border-walker.

Looking at the list of constellations of the IAU (http://www.iau.org/), one finds represented the entire starry sky. For most schools of sidereal astrology, the twelve of the 88 sidereal constellations along the ecliptic are of importance essentially. Bernd Happel took as example in his Sidereal Astrology Software “AstroSoft / Skyview” the boundaries of the IAU for the twelve constellations of the zodiac. Source: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siderische_Astrologie

The already hotly debated topic among the general public around the 13th constellation Ophiuchus (Ophiuchus) has understandably caused a lot of confusion. Nevertheless, you should respect recognize the demonstrable statements of astronomers of Ophiuchus and corrections in the constellation circle in astrology are needed. Are to accept and to integrate. Astrology and astronomy merge and give the unit that she was once again. That’s the M o o nSurfer Astronomologiy. Proper way – there is, amazingly, only ONE and that is the real “constellation circle” in the sky – also Orion has a large raison in Astronomologiy.

Orion – The Hunter June 18 – June 21

Thus, there are still 14 constellations.

In order to meet the reality of our beautiful night sky, there should be 16 constellations. In the near vicinity of Pisces there is Cetus, the whale, which also sprayes his energies into the ecliptic. On the other side of the constellation circle, we find the majestic and royal Leo with his neighbor, Sextant. So the Sextant also touches the ecliptic. Observing the course of the Lady Moon, as she enters not only the Lion, for a few hours up to a day, she can be found in the constellation of the Sextant, while at the very next day, she travel back into the Leo.

Similarly it behaves with the passage of the Lady Moon through the constellations Capricornus and Aquarius, which are very into each nested in the sky.

We discover this strange phenomenon in terms of the constellations Pisces and Cetus.

That is why it is recommended, to measure the starsign image circle to reality and to expand with Cetus well as the Sextant.

So we talk about 16 Astronomology-relevant constellations of the 88, because that is was our beautiful night sky has to offer.has to offer.

As we know from Astronomy also the vernal equinox “travels” and is no longer in Aries (the vernal equinox runs backwards) but in the constellation of “Pisces” instead. Sol travels on March 12 into the Pisces and has the vernal equinox with her in the luggage.

Astronomy: Beautiful – The dancing Stars…

…as almost all the time, when something nice is to see in the sky, Germany is clouded up…

Stunning images show Venus and Mars ‘dancing’ alongside the Moon as they appear at the closest distance together for seven years

This is the moment that Venus and Mars ‘danced’ alongside the moon in what was the closest pairing of the two planets in seven years.

The pairing is known as a ‘conjunction’, which means the planets are positioned in such a form that they appear aligned from Earth.

These photographs of the phenomenon were taken on Friday night at Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight and in Monyash, Derbyshire.

The planets appeared close to each other after sunset for about an hour – and will not be this close again until October 2017.

Venus appeared brighter than Mars, with the planets about 134million and 203million miles away from Earth respectively.

Arizona State University astrophysicist Patrick Young said: ‘It doesn’t have any physical significance, but it’s pretty impressive to look at.

‘This is one of the more impressive things you’ll be able to see with the naked eye. It should look pretty neat with binoculars too.’

Iraq: US arming Isil … !? Stars for December 2014

“The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign policy.”
Ramsey Clark/Former U.S. Attorney General/President Lyndon Johnson

In the past times, my thought’s take off often to the wise and true words of Ramsey Clark.
Since End of November until End of December, two heavenly kings are in a serious conflict. One King is the rebel Uranus and the other one is Pluto, who never ever stopped being a PLANET.
The karmic Pluto resides till 2024 in the star sign of Sagittarius and Uranus till 2018 in Pisces. Both kings are activating the battles between the dogmatic and money-organized religions (Pisces) and the tolerant/philosophical freedom oriented religions (Sagittarius).
The deep tension between the transiting Pluto and the transiting Uranus indicates a trend of drastic upheavals in many life’s around the globe. This is a energy producing far-reaching and even permanent consequences. Termination is the goal. Termination of old friendships – personal/businesses/countries/governments – and/or group associations. The emerging circumstances will be dramatic, unfamiliar and strange and it is wise advised, do not fall for the trap, that YOU need to actively initiate changes. The changes are not in your personal power with this energy. Deal constructive with basics of life patterns you know you can trust and focus on security as well as on safety.
Changes are the result of natural/economic, social or political upheavals beyond personal control. Many will have to set goals new, in the light of new emerged circumstances. Cultivate your behaviour in public and do not get confused with apathetic, blind submissions. Better stay away from mass-events.
Many times I explained you about the serious DragonTail and his cosmic agenda in Pisces, which rules the Middle East, the $$$, oil, gas, religions and religious fanatics, drugs and money, just to name the most important. Some powers on this wrecked planet Terra, our mother ship in space, are misusing the energy of the DragonTail. Well, they try it and the result will be the exposing of their deceptions. Isil is and will not be the only shady religious private army trained and financed with/through the Dollar. I told you the Dollar is a religious-war currency.
All countries resisting “George Orwell’s 1984” , have or will face their own problem’s with secret armies. Question how long will they stay secret, as the DragonTail have fun with exposing. Now under the Pluto/Uranus tension, are two sides fighting about which dirt will be exposed about who.
Pluto and Uranus are mixing up friends and enemies and in some ways, all humans are affected. Countries are affected. Governments are affected. Old allies die, new ones form and/or old enemies come back to life – mostly in a bizarre way, like the protesting events in Leipzig.
Do we focus on world events and the stars, we have the USA and Russia. Once the picture of enemies. Than united in WW2 and now? Back to the old game. Never change a winning concept?! Or was it never really a friendship? Ask the DragonTail, he knows…
Anyway, one battlefield of forming new enemies, which was in process a long time ago, is mainly the Middle East.
How was this old quote of the Roman Empire? “You need to create the enemy today, you will need tomorrow!”
If one want to know, where his own secret enemies are located, look where Pluto and Neptune are in the own chart.
If one wants to know where a countries hidden enemies are, look where Pluto and Neptune are located in the state chart. That’s the places where you find political and military blackmail and/or nuclear blackmail/threats. You find the pressure from foreign governments (Saturn/Jupiter) and their actions (Mars/embargo/border issues/economical traps and/or economical blackmail) to receive control. By the way, Mars indicate the weapon trades, the condition/strength of the army/military and war willingly or of course how weak an army is, in a state chart. I can tell you, there is a country in the Middle East, every military dictator gets wet eyes, dreaming about having their military power.
Not to forget, currencies play a major role in all stages of this great war between the dying Pisces Age and the awakening Aquarius Age. Pluto rules also the loans, the taxes and the interest, so this constellation of the planets will activate more problems in those areas. Keep in mind, wars are not limited to classical battlefields – they are also fought out on the international financial markets/banks and stock exchange.
Some countries will be blocked by Pluto from installing changes and other countries will have the pressure from Pluto to install changes – even if they don’t really want to.
Many countries/govermnets will suprise their people with changes of laws, installed in secrecy. Well, if people like it, is another story.
At the 18th of December Sol is entering the Sagittarius and moving out at the 19th of January 2015. Sol will unite with PlutoEnergy around the 3rd of January, making the dates from 31st of December to the 6th of January 2015 a very explosive, shocking and danger. Since we move with Sol through Sagittarius and Terra through Gemini, there will be some more troubles are to expect. Mainly communication made in public, political meetings and discussions. Diplomatic relationships for countries born with Sol or other major planets in Sagittarius, Gemini and Libra will be a serious issue. Borders, border protection and inner safety is on the cosmic agenda. Don’t forget, Pluto brings back Karma and awakes it! Some governments will pull back. Some will be forced to pull back. Some will lose support from others, change their own support, which will have economical and political consequences for many people. Some countries get isolated, while others will open up (Cuba?).
USA, Russia or as example Israel, will be a huge part of the events. Some countries in the Middle East will have to face old and new enemies. (Tipp: watch the movie “Lawrence of Arabia” with Peter O’Toole)
Clearly spoken, our planet is a total mess and the energies moving in, doesn’t make it better. Sadly, a lot of freaks and fanatics will take stupid action’s. No matter if with a religious agenda or without. Or fake agendas. Or set-up agendas. Keep in mind, all religious branded countries no matter where on earth, are going through explosive times. You never know, where the next school is blowing up…or a church…or a temple… etc..
Emerald Tablet of Hermes
0) Balinas mentions the engraving on the table in the hand of Hermes, which says:
1) Truth! Certainty! That in which there is no doubt!
2) That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above, working the miracles of one.
3) As all things were from one.
4) Its father is the Sun and its mother the Moon.
5) The Earth carried it in her belly, and the Wind nourished it in her belly,
7) as Earth which shall become Fire.
7a) Feed the Earth from that which is subtle, with the greatest power.
8) It ascends from the earth to the heaven and becomes ruler over that which is above and that which is below.
14) And I have already explained the meaning of the whole of this in two of these books of mine.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/alc/emerald.htm
„That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above, working the miracles of one.”
We have the battles of the energies of the planets up there and we have the battles down here. And because it is the battle of the karmic energies (Pluto) against the rebellion (Uranus) energy, we will have to deal with old (religious) conflicts, dated back to the Osmanian Empire, fought out today in the Middle East, while other forces use the conflicts for their own agenda.
Well basically, UK and France made real bad mistakes, when they split up the pieces of the fallen Osmanian Empire. Especially in Iraq, they messed up big time.
Germany will face much more inner unrest and protesting with more united groups, coming from extreme opposite lifestyles. Germany needs to watch out about people, who bring their own wars with them. Also Germany will have to face karma: wars from the past, some from far away, arise to life again in German streets. With the extreme globalisation, the war’s went more “mobile”.
When a country is fighting “other peoples” war, in other peoples countries, they should not be surprised, that one day, some cosmic karmic energy, brings those wars in their own streets, of their own country.
Be peaceful, be happy and be safe!

REPORTS OF US AIRFORCE CARGO PLANES DELIVERING MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF ARMS TO ISIL / 15DEC2014
 Part of channel(s): Iraq (current event)

US has delivered weapons to the terrorist group ISIS (Daesh, in Arabic) in the Iraqi city of Tal Afar, west of the capital of the northwestern province of Nineveh, Mosul, which has become since last June a bastion these takfiri gangs, according to an Iraqi parliamentary.

“Three US aircraft carrying advanced weapons, clothes and food for ISIL, have landed at the airport in Tal Afar,” reported Sunday Nahla Al-Hababi, the representative of the Nineveh province in the Iraqi parliament.

Al-Hababi, without specifying exact dates, explained that the landings took place on three separate occasions and have provided terrorists a quantity of arms ‘which is sufficient for an army’.

The Iraqi lawmaker noted that military uniforms issued to members of Daesh are very similar to those used by peshmerga (Iraqi Kurdish forces), and possibly will be used in attacks against these fighters.

Jupiter: The Eye in the Sky

Here’s looking at you: Moon shadow gives Jupiter a giant staring eye

  • Giant eye appears to be looking directly at the Hubble space telescope, which captured the image
  • Taken  when Hubble was being used to monitor changes in Jupiter’s immense Great Red Spot (GRS) storm
  • During the exposures, the shadow of the Jovian moon Ganymede swept across the center of the GRS

It may seem the perfect Halloween prank, but astronomers say they have spotted a mysterious ‘eye’ on Saturn.

The giant eye appears to be looking directly at the Hubble space telescope, which captured the image.

However, Nasa says that in fact the image shows a shadow over a storm.

Lokking right back at you: On April 21, 2014, when Hubble was being used to monitor changes in Jupiter's immense Great Red Spot (GRS) storm, a shadow caused this 'eye' to appear.

JUPITER’S SIX SIDED STORM

 A bizarre six-sided storm churning Saturn’s north pole has flummoxed astronomers ever since it was first spotted thirty years ago.

Now, astronomers believe they may have solved one of its biggest mysteries by working out how it operates – and discovering the rotation period of Saturn in the process.

The giant storm operates rather like the jet stream on Earth they say – explaining why it never appears to move.

The image was taken on April 21, 2014, when Hubble was being used to monitor changes in Jupiter’s immense Great Red Spot (GRS) storm.

This gave the giant planet the uncanny appearance of having a pupil in the center of a 10,000-mile-diameter ‘eye.’

 ‘For a moment, Jupiter ‘stared’ back at Hubble like a one-eyed giant Cyclops,’ Nasa said.

It is one of many unusual storms on Saturn.

Space: Pluto was, is and always will be a planet!

…yes I remember when they came out in 2006 about Pluto not being a planet anymore. I was just laughing about it. Well, dear experts, it is not about size, it is about energy. Pluto up there, of course, don’t care about silly decisions of the earthlings. Pluto was, is and always will be a planet.

End of discission.

Should Pluto be a planet again? Panel votes to reinstate ninth world of the solar system in unofficial debate

  • Pluto lost its status as a planet in 2006 when other bodies of a similar size were found in the solar system 
  • Last week, during a debate at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, people voted to reinstate its planet status
  • Three experts gave their arguments for and against Pluto being a planet
  • Audience members then voted on which argument they thought was best
  • The vote isn’t official, but highlights the public continued disapproval of Pluto’s demotion to ‘dwarf planet’ status
  • In July, the New Horizons craft will become the first mission to visit Pluto

In 2006, Pluto lost its status as a planet when other bodies in the solar system of similar or greater size were found.

The decision to demote it to a ‘dwarf planet’ by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) at the time was highly contentious – and it now seems many still want its planet status reinstated.

In a debate where experts presented cases for and against the decision, it was found that most people in the audience still wanted Pluto to be a planet.

In a debate held last week at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics in Massachusetts most people still wanted Pluto to be a planet. Three experts gave their arguments for and against Pluto being a planet and audience members then gave their decision - with most wanting Pluto to still be a planet (shown)

Astronomy: Discover of asteroid with rings!

Meet the mini-Saturn: Asteroid has two rocky rings

  • Astronomers at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, spotted the ringed asteroid
  • Has a diameter of 155miles (250km) and orbits the sun between Saturn and Uranus, girdled by two thin rings composed of ice particles and pebbles
  • The space rock, called Chariklo, was originally located in the Kuiper Belt

By Sarah Griffiths

t was thought that only planets have rings, but now an asteroid has proved experts wrong.

A rocky body orbiting the sun between Saturn and Uranus is girdled by two rings, scientists have learned.

Previously only giant gas planets, most famously Saturn, were thought to possess bands made up of dust, rocks and ice.

Totally surprising: An asteroid orbiting the sun between Saturn and Uranus (illustrated) is girdled by two rings, scientists have learned. It is the first time that such a small celestial body with rings has been observed

CHARIKLO – THE SURPRISING ASTEROID WITH TWO BELTS

  • Diameter: 155miles (250km)
  • Original location: In the Kuiper Belt
  • Present location: Largest member of the Centaurs
  • Rings: Two – comprised of ice particles and pebbles.
  • Width of the rings: Two miles and five miles  (3km and 7km)
  • Thickness of the rings: Few hundred metres
  • Distance between the rings: Five miles (9km)

The ringed space rock, called Chariklo, was originally located in the Kuiper Belt, which is a circling group of icy dwarf planets and comets at the edge of the solar system.

 

At some point it was thrown out of the belt and now exists as the largest member of a group of objects known as the Centaurs, which are small solar system bodies with a an elliptical axis between two outer planets.

Astronomers stumbled across the rings while using several telescopes to observe Chariklo, which has a diameter of 155miles (250km).

The bright moon moves into late-night skies this week, offering backyard observers some early-evening opportunities to hunt down celestial sights ranging from a fading supernova to a giant asteroid.

Last-chance supernova. For Monday, February 17, and the rest of the week, the exploding star SN 2014J will be visible in darker skies in the early evening, thanks to the moon rising late at night. The supernova illuminates the 12-million-light-years-distant Cigar Galaxy.

Reports indicate that the extragalactic supernova peaked over a week ago at 10.4 magnitude. It has since steadily dropped in brightness. As of February 16 it has dimmed to 11th magnitude, which still puts it well within the reach of small backyard telescopes equipped with mirrors of at least four to six inches. Observers using high magnification may notice the supernova’s distinctive orange hue, caused by its light refracting off the surrounding dust that fills its host galaxy.

Check out more details on how to track down SN2014J for yourself here.

Moon visits Spica. On Wednesday, February 19, early-bird sky-watchers get a chance to watch the waning gibbous moon glide past the brilliant blue-white star, Spica. The 263-light-years-distant star in the constellation Virgo, the Maiden, will appear only 3 degrees apart. That is less than the width of your three middle fingers held at arm’s length.

Moon joins Mars. By the next morning, Thursday, February 20, the brilliant moon will have popped over to the other side of Spica and Mars.

Riding alongside Spica, the red planet is easy to spot rising in the northeastern sky around 10 p.m. local time. However, the best views are through a telescope at high magnification just before local dawn, when the planet sits nearly overhead, looking toward the south. While the views of Mars will get better in April, when the distance between our two planets decreases and its planetary disk therefore increases in size, even now some of its surface features are visible.

Luna and Lord of the Rings. Finally, on Friday and Saturday, the near quarter moon snuggles up to Saturn. On both days the stunning cosmic duo will appear only 6 degrees apart, a little more than the width of your fist at arm’s length.

The planet is now dominating the high southern night sky in the Northern Hemisphere (north sky in the Southern Hemisphere) rising after local midnight and reaching its highest altitude in the predawn hours. It’s easily visible in the constellation Libra—you won’t need any optical aids to see it.

To the naked eye, the sixth planet from the sun shines with the creamy yellow color of its gaseous atmosphere. (Related: “NASA Probe Spies Giant Hurricane on Saturn.”)

There is no Saturn in Scorpio – Saturn is in Libra.

No Jupiter in Cancer – he is still in Gemini.

No Mars in Libra – he is still in Virgo.

The list goes on and on… Don’t trust those free available “Astrology-Ephemerids” – they are an illusion and are not based on REAL ASTRONOMICAL CALCULATIONS.
