Mars & The Pleiades
Mars slides underneath the Pleiades Star Cluster The Seven Sisters.
IT IS A PERFECT VIEWING WEEK THIS WEEK.
Tonight, where I live the sky just cleared and the full moon rose strong.
In the western sky, the prominent red looking star you can see now is Mars. There is also a orange red, slightly lighter in color Star up in that section of the sky. That is Aldeberan. (Have the moon at your back and look the opposite side of the sky.)
Aldeberan and The Seven Sisters are in the constellation Taurus.
Mars is joining them for a week or two. It is the closest Mars Pleiades since 2006, and won’t come again until 2038.
Their closest approach is March 3 & 4.
All week is good viewing. Mars sets by midnight. So it is best viewed an hour past sunset and before 10 pm.
Just above Mars is the Pleiades Star Cluster. If you aren’t familiar with finding it in the night sky, Is has a fuzzy visual quality.
If you had binoculars, you would see it dazzle. Almost looks like a tiny Little Dipper.
It’s worth the trip outside on this crisp
clear night to see it. And you can bask in the glow of the Full Moon in the eastern sky.
White Buffalo Calf Woman visits today
Had a “visit” with WHITE BUFFALO CALF WOMAN yesterday.
She shared info in relation to her association with the Pleiades.
Some tales suggest she was a star visitor. One of the Pleiades descended to Earth. To offer tools/gifts/knowledge to the people. Since she descended, there are now 6 easily visible stars in the Pleiades cluster (instead of 7, as before).
She asks you now....
What STAR KNOWLEDGE(s) are you being to earth to share at this time??
What aspects are you descending and embodying this season??
As we move through this active Pleiades Mars conjunction stargate corridor. Make a point to connect in. Ask your higher self/star self/ over soul what is your highest offering to earth in this moment.
Then share it with us!!
You are welcome to use this post to share your gifts/knowledge current embodiment tools.
Good website to learn more about WBC Woman and her legacy/tales.
Working with Kepler's mysterium cosmographicum
In my research for this current Gateway, I have been delving into the work of Johannes Kepler, a 16th century German astronomer and mathematician. Hidden within the solar system is a deep structure, and inner harmony. Kepler uncovered this order, and shared it with the world. He published his major astronomical work, Mysterium Cosmographicum (The Cosmographic Mystery) in 1595.
The story goes, he was lecturing on the topic of the periodic conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn when he had a realization. He was demonstrating the relationship between two circles, and realized it was similar to something he had been working on with planetary orbits.
He speculated that the orbits of the six planets known at the time—Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn—could be arranged in spheres nested around the five Platonic solids: octahedron, icosahedron, dodecahedron, tetrahedron and cube.
Start with the earth. The earth circle is the measure of all things. Around the earth, draw a dodecahedron. At the edge of that solid shape will be the circle path of the orbit of Mars. Then circumscribe (fancy word for draw around it closely) a tetrahedron around Mars and there we find the orbit of Jupiter. Draw a cube around Jupiter, and the orbit of Saturn will enclose it. And he goes on with the other shapes and planets....
"Now, inscribe an icocehedron inside the earth. The circle inscribed in it will be Venus. Inscibe and Octahedron inside Venus. The circle inscribed in it will be Mercury."
“Kepler began experimenting and found that each of the five Platonic solids could be uniquely inscribed and circumscribed by spherical orbs; nesting these solids, each encased in a sphere, within one another would produce six layers, corresponding to the six known planets—Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. By ordering the solids correctly—octahedron, icosahedron, dodecahedron, tetrahedron, and cube—Kepler found that the spheres correspond to the relative sizes of each planet's path around the Sun.”
This beautiful and highly ordered system Kepler outlined here speaks of the underlying blueprint and code of the universe. While this concept did not "hold up" over time as more planets were discovered and astronomy progressed in knowledge, it was very significant in assisting the paradigm shift to the heliocentric view. The celestial bodies that are within the gravitational and magnetic influence of our sun orbit around the sun. This was a big expansion and shift at the time. One of the "obstacles" of this upgrade or change of view was the concept of "divine order". The existing system, geocentric, putting earth at the center of the universe view, had a strong hold on the theologians of the time. Kelper helped humanity see (even though it took some time) that the “Copernican Revolution” was a movement towards the truth. It inspired many souls to open and to expand their views.
There is significance and so much to work and play with here for those of us that work with the energetics and flows of the solar system. Many grid keepers are also gatekeepers. The notion that between each planet orbit in our solar system, there is energetically nested a platonic solid, gives us some tangible tools and constructs to play with.
I am going to leave this article here, and offer you some time to contemplate and integrate and play with this notion. It's IMMENSE. Watch the short video below...it is only 2-3 minutes. And the images convey it ALL.
PS - I had one of those - OMG moments myself when reading about the moment Kepler had his "ah-ha" moment with this. He was lecturing on the periodic conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter. This concept made itself LOUD to me to pay attention to just a few weeks after we had our recent Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21, 2020. It was if the planets themselves revealed this to me, or pointed my awareness in the direction of this image (see pics above).
This is how the process of revelation works. One person's ah-ha sparks our own.
And we then LIGHT THE WAY for others. Like when the flame is passed torch to torch.
“As he indicated in the title, Kepler thought he had revealed God’s geometrical plan for the universe. Much of Kepler's enthusiasm…stemmed from his theological convictions about the connection between the physical and the spiritual; the universe itself was an image of God, with the Sun corresponding to the Father, the stellar sphere to the Son, and the intervening space between to the Holy Spirit. His first manuscript of Mysterium contained an extensive chapter reconciling heliocentrism with biblical passages that seemed to support geocentrism.”

Be A PARADIGM DISRUPTOR
A massive amount of energy is needed to upgrade the current governing world view. To transform a paradigm, we need to be DISRUPTORS. To offer a differing viewpoint. A new improved angle. A NEW WAY. There have been many points along the way of human evolution on this planet when this has happened. For sure we are at one of those points currently on our sweet home planet earth! May this blog inspire YOU to be a paradigm disruptor, in your own field!
For inspiration, we cast a glance at history. At the tipping points for our species, where a new way was found and then widely adopted. One such moment was the paradigm shift during the “Copernican Revolution” in Europe in the 1500s.
The governing paradigm in Europe (prior to 1500) was that all the planets and stars rotated around the earth. We call that a geocentric model. This model was out of phase with the new astronomical discoveries, and as we commonly know and accept as truth now, the planets in our solar system orbit around the sun. This is known as a Heliocentric model.
Nicolaus Copernicus was a “disruptor” and published in 1543 his astronomical model that model positioned the Sun at the center of the Universe with Earth and the other planets orbiting around it in circular paths. While this path was well paved by the ancient astronomers, and by many Islamic earlier astronomers, his work is considered a major tipping point and advancement that charted a new course in science and human understanding.
If you want to dive in to learn more about history of astronomy and when the paradigm changed to heliocentric, here is a good brief you tube video on the topic.
THE PLATONIC SOLIDS
Since ancient times, humans have pondered the big questions of life. We have an innate inner longing for meaning….and seek to understand fundamental truths about ourselves and our world and our place in the world.
Philosophers dove deep into these contemplations around the turn of the Common Era and explored at great length these metaphysical questions. They leave their writing and research for us to dive into as we explore the same inner questions.
One well known philosopher that defined an era of human thought was Plato. Plato explored the theory that the physical world around us is a reflection of a higher truth. And this physical world we see is constructed of basic forms. He encapsulated the foundations of geometry. Plato called the triangle the building block of the universe. Starting with the triangle, and observing patterns and design in nature, we extrapolate all of the polygons, such as the square, hexagon, pentagon, octagon and so on. Polygons are defined as geometric objects with a certain number of points (vertices) and sides (edges).
Using the triangle as the basic builder’s tool, we can construct more elaborate polygons, by adding another edge. This image shows this progression well…
Three edges give a triangle. Four a square. Add a fifth, we get a pentagon, the sixth side yields a hexagon. We keep adding edges to infinity, and we get a smooth circle.
All that above describes polygons - flat, drawn on paper or 2 dimensional shapes. When we move into the third spatial dimension, and want to build 3D models or solids with volume enclosed, we call those polyhedra. Polyhedron (singular) is a Greek word, meaning “Many Faces”. Polyhedrons are constructed solid shape objects constructed by putting polygons together. Like manga tiles (the kid toy).
There is a special exciting subset of polyhedra that have certain defined attributes. A math geek would call these “Regular Polyhedra”. They are constructed of faces of identical polygons. Plato proved that we can only construct 5 such special polyhedra. The 5 solid regular polyhedra are known as the Platonic Solids. They are named after the amount of polygon faces they are built with.
Tetrahedron 4 equilateral triangle faces
Hexahedron / Cube 6 square faces
Octahedron 8 triangular faces
Dodecahedron 12 pentagon faces
Icosahedron 20 triangular faces
While there is evidence that others used and explored these shapes prior, it was Plato around 350 BC who made them “popular” and of common use. Plato believed these 5 solids were the basic building blocks of our reality. And he went further to associate each shape with an element and a state of matter.
Modern day, many of us use the Platonic Solids as self awareness and recalibration tools.
The shape is a vibrational transmission. You can sit with one in your hand, gaze at a picture, or bring the shape into your inner eye. See how it feels. What is communicates to you on a soul level, and what it reveals and shows you.
Once you get to know them, these building block shapes are essential and a favorite tool for BUILDERS of LIGHT. We shape light codes, build light bridges, and construct light cities with them. They are the shape and forms that build our light bodies, and all of creation. Holding ourselves within one vibrationally recalibrates your field. The interplay and possibilities are vast.
While the human brain may like to seek out knowledge and details (note the further reading articles and sources sited below for your mind to enjoy) – the super potent fun way to explore the vibration and resonance of these is through art, joy, fun and play.
