Have you felt the energy in the sky, did you know a comet dove into our Sun on Nov 5th, did the past full moon in Taurus -Scorpio knock u out? Is the Universe out of site? Well hold on tight now we have another sign in the sky night or sunset, where ever u are

 

Nov 8th, tomorrow a major significant celestial event will take place in our solar system. Mercury the closest planet to the sun, the communicator, the iron core dwarf will cross the face of the Sun.

 

The first bite of Mercury appears on the solar disk’s edge at 2:12 P.M. EST (11:12 A.M. PST). This moment is called “first contact,” and it signifies the transit’s start. People throughout North and South America and in Hawaii will witness this stage. About 2 minutes later, Mercury’s entire disk appears against the Sun’s face — second contact. Over the following 4 hours and 54 minutes, Mercury’s dark silhouette traverses the Sun’s southern hemisphere. At Mercury’s distance of 63 million miles from Earth, the planet’s 3,000-mile-wide disk spans a mere 10″.

 

Mercury reaches the midpoint of the transit at 4:41 P.M. EST (1:41 P.M. PST), and the Sun sets soon after along the U.S. eastern seaboard.

 

The transit’s end will be visible only from west of the Rocky Mountains. Third contact occurs at 4:08 P.M. PST, followed 2 minutes later by the transit’s conclusion. Residents of Hawaii and New Zealand can see the entire event. The transit’s final stages can be viewed from Australia, Japan, and eastern Asia, where the Sun rises with the transit in progress.

 

Mercury transits can occur only in May or November, when the planet crosses the ecliptic plane. And they happen rarely — 13 or 14 times per century. The next Mercury transit occurs May 9, 2016.

 

Mercury will track closer to the Sun’s center during this month’s transit. So imagine our Sun and your inner sun being awakened by a cosmic beeper. We still have the effect of the Ultra Violet meditation of Oct 17 and my feeling is anything can happen suddenly. Be ever ready and flow like a river. Who are we but the ones who use the energy to shift the planet to a higher plane

 

 

Remember Venus…This transit takes place 2 years 5 months and some twelve hours after the Venus transit of June 8, 2004. One observation of the possible effects of the Venus transit involved the unusual and difficult blooming pattern seen in yarrow plants in the following year. Perhaps other plant species which are thought to relate to the planet Venus were also affected, but certainly, the yarrow definitely seemed to be experiencing problems. One could presume that with a Mercury transit, we might observe chamomile plants very closely to see if they experience a similar difficulty in their growth patterns, since chamomile is almost universally seen as having a connection to the planet Mercury. A Mercury transit takes place with approximately thirteen to fourteen transits each century while a Venus transits occurs with approximately the same thirteen to fourteen transits each 1000 years.

 

The transit of Mercury may well have an effect on the Warmth forces emanating from the Sun, especially if Mercury has the same capability of “eating up the light” from the Sun that Rudolf Steiner ascribed to a Venus transit. If that capability exists, Mercury’s smaller size may diminish its effect well below the effect that Venus may have had. It will be interesting to see whether the Mercury transit results in an increase or a decrease of Warmth forces over the next few months.

So what to do, become the planet Mercury. An ancient God from Greek times.

 

The principal holiday for the merchant god was Mercuralia, May 15th. Among the Celtics and Germans existed cults of Mercury worshippers.

 

As one of the five “moving stars” or “planets”, Mercury’s name is the origin of “Wednesday.” In French, this is ‘mercredi’, coming from the Latin ‘Mercurii dies’, or Mercury’s day.

 

WORK HISTORY

Hermes served as messenger for Zeus (though sometimes he job-shares with Iris, the goddess of the dawn) and as sometime conductor of souls of the dead to Hades. He was also known as “the guide and giver of good.” As one of Jupiter’s favorites (as Mercury) he was considered the most entertaining, the most shrewd and the most resourceful god. When Jupiter tired of Olympus, he chose Mercury to accompany him on forays to Earth, both disguised as mortals.

 

In his job as messenger, he wears a broad-rimmed traveller’s hat called a petasos or petasus, talaria or winged sandals made “of imperishable gold which bore him swift as a breath of air over sea and earth,” and carries a cadeuceus or herald’s staff around which serpents or ribbons may be found. The cadeuceus is said to be able to charm men’s eyes to sleep. He also carries a purse (more like a money-bag actually….). The purse signifies his role as the Greek god of riches, trade and good fortune and the Roman god of trade, profit, merchants and travelers. He took over the latter job from the Dei Lucre, early Roman deities of commerce. Hermes also changed his name to Mercury. Among his personal favorite commercial activities was the corn trade. Mercury’s relationship to business and speed survive in words like “mercurial” and mercantile.” Because of his speed he is sometimes considered a god of the winds.

 

To the Babylonians he was viewed as the bearer of riches. To the astrologers of the Renaissance he was the bringer of misfortune.

 

SYMBOL

Mercury’s `corporate logo’ is often described as representing the messenger’s cadeuceus or wand with two snakes curled around it. In some versions of the logo’s origin it is said to be Mercury in his winged hat or petasos.

 

TRADE NAMES

To the Germans he was Wodan.

To the Greeks he was also known as Alipes (the one with winged feet).

To the pre-Roman Etruscans he was Turms, guide of the deceased to the underworld, and messenger of the gods.

To the Egyptians he was known as messenger of the gods Thoth. As such he was the origin of the deity Hermes Trismegistus, or “Thrice-great Hermes.” The three part title comes from this version of Hermes being the Greek writer of astrological texts and responsible for occult arts including alchemy, and the Egyptian god who invented hieroglyphics and calendar-keeping and also judged the souls of the deceased.

To the Sumerians he was Gud, a god favoring welcome rains, agricultural fertility and harvest abundance.

 

To the Assyrians he was Nabu, the “herald.” Instead of being the messenger of the gods, he was the heavenly secretary, keeping track of the words of the gods. This also made him the Assyrian god of knowledge and the recorder of fate for people for the next year.

 

So use your imagination and be the messenger for the world.

Take time and talk with God and let go of the fears. You have many riches within and time to reap the harvest of good thoughts.

 

Enjoy the times we are in as U are the time clock and time traveler.

 

From the heart,

 

Lucho

On November 8, 2006, Mercury will slowly slide across the face of the sun during an event known as a transit. A transit of Mercury is relatively rare—there are only about a dozen in a century.

 

The Exploratorium’s Live@ crew will be at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, and, with the Kitt Peak staff, will Webcast the transit: a live five-hour telescope-only feed beginning at 11:00 am PST.

 

The transit will take place from 11:12 a.m. PST until 4:10 p.m. PST and will be visible from the Pacific, the Americas, eastern Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, although some locations will not be able to see the entire transit. Because of Mercury’s diminutive size, the transit cannot be seen with the unaided eye, but it can be viewed with a telescope (with the proper filter) or with a homemade optical projector.

The Comet story —

DEATH PLUNGE: Yesterday, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) caught a comet plunging toward the sun. It went in–but not out again. The sungrazing comet disintegrated like an ice cube in an oven. See the movie: large, small.

 

TRANSIT OF MERCURY: On Wednesday, Nov. 8th, Mercury will transit the sun, crossing from one side of the star to the other in just five hours. En route, it might eclipse sunspot 921. Greg Piepol of Rockville, Maryland, prepared this animation showing the path of Mercury and the expected position of the sunspot on Nov. 8th:

 

In Greg’s simulation, the background image is real. He took it on Nov. 3rd using his Coronado SolarMax90. The photo was rotated just as the sun spins to move the sunspot into position for the transit. Bulls-eye! 921 is going to provide a pleasing backdrop for Mercury’s journey across the sun.
