An ancient “School of Prophets” understood much about the cosmos and used natural time-cycles to mark out the course of history. For them the cosmos seemed somehow much closer and more relevant than it does today.
Among other things they believed that there were specific doorways or gates leading in and out of “heaven”. These portals were believed to be located at the points where the ecliptic (the pathway followed by the Sun in its annual progression along the zodiac) crosses over the Milky Way.
Significantly the Sun now sits at one of these gateways at the solstices. By a process of analogy: “As Above, So Below”, this indicates that it is now that these “stargates” are opening. Adrian Gilbert
As mentioned in the above quote Summer Solstice Sun now rises on the Galactic Cross near the Galactic Edge letting us know we are at the Turning of a Great Age. This is an event that occurs in the current configuration about every 26,000 years and lasts for at least 72 years – as that is how long it takes the Sun to move 1 degree through the backdrop of the stars.
Using the 72 year window this shift began in 1962 and ends in 2030. When considering an entire 26,000 year Great Year of time – one degree on either side of the exact center point of the Sun on the cross is also reasonable. That creates a 144 year window, 72 years on either side of the exact point. The exact center point was calculated by astronomer John Muess as occurring in 1998. That means if we calculate 72 years before and after – the window began in 1926 and lasts until 2070.
At the very least we know we are still near the exact center point when the ‘stargate’ or ‘portal’ is wide open during the solstices. The Sun acts as a doorway to the incoming energies, illuminating and opening the stargate to other realms and dimensions as it rises, sets and tracks across the sky during the solstice time. As pictured to the left – you can see where the June solstice Sun is sitting on the Galactic Cross between the constellation of the Twins and the Bull. Solstice translate as stand still of the Sun and is exact for at least three days and is nearly exact for almost three weeks.
The Sun is a star light so gives off star light, and carries its own starry codes that help to activate the area of the sky it is passing through. The Sun is necessary for life in many ways and also has the ability to help us calibrate our own frequency to the higher frequencies available at this time – especially during a Solstice or stand still time as it concentrates the star energy from that part of the sky for several days. This can help with healing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues when applied with awareness and a loving intent.
Working with ceremony and intent magnifies the Solstice energy as we inform the mysteries as much as they inform us.
