Comet 17P/Holmes Occults Mirfak as Galactic Fifth Night Begins
It is official folks, we have entered that time period or should I say timeless field from November 19, 2007 to November 12, 2008 known as Galactic Fifth Night. A time to integrate all the momentous changes that have come in the preceding day period. It has been said that the 5,125 patriarchal domination and 256 years (Planetary Period) of seeking materialist comfort will coming crashing down (per Barbara Hand Clow - The Mayan Code) One thing is for sure we are on shaky ground economically and spiritual revolution is literally in the air and ready to surge forward.
Among other things a new cycle of the world economy is in full swing with Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in the Galactic Center that takes place on December 11 at 28 degrees of Sagittarius, a major indicator of debt-related crises. We had our preview last year with Jupiter in Scorpio when the housing market bubble began to first burst.
The next lunation is a Full Moon on November 24th @ 6:30 AM PT or 9:30 AM ET at 1* 55' or 2* Gemini. (Sabian Symbol: "Spellbound a child looks on as Santa dexterously gift wraps a children's book and some gold-foiled chocolates." We can examine this symbolism later but note that the full moon is in the vicinity of fixed star Mirfak (always ready for a challaenge) in the constellation Perseus where our wandering Comet 17P Holmes has been pulsing change. tar in the elbow of the Champion, Perseus.
Arabic Mirfak, Mirzac, Marfak or Al Mirfaq (1), "The elbow" of the Pleiades - i.e. next to the Pleiades. The title comes from the Arabians' Marfik al Thurayya, thus qualified as being next to the Pleiades to distinguish it from the other elbow. The preceding is taken from one of the best references to fixed stars and their mythic origins.
B Brady equates Mirfak with masculine energy: a young warrior proud of his hunting ability and fighting prowess yet she says it is an area where we need to take caution and listen to wisdom before overestimating the nature of things.
When we dig deeper (especially with Mercury-Scorpio trine Mars today) we see Mughammid, or Muliammir, al Thurayya, "the Concealer of the Pleiades", — which, from its location, may be for this star. It is the fact that the Earth was once a colony of the Pleiades which makes this even more significance - in many ways Earth is being set free to touch all the neighbors or relations outside our solar system.
Also note some more Astronomical Info:
Mirfak is the brightest member of the young "Alpha Persei Cluster," which contains many of the fainter surrounding stars (most likely including Delta Persei), the "elbow of the Pleiades" having something of a "Pleiades" of its own. The cluster's age of 50 million years fits as well.
Not only is the coming full moon known by Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior as the Full Beaver Moon. Despite all the jokes and funny connotations they were taking about preparing for the winter: "This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon."
I will examine this lunation in more depth later but note that on that day @ 2:16 AM PT Uranus the trickster and harbinger of this age is stationing direct @ 14* 46' right in the middle of Pisces where oil has began approaching $100.00/barrel. Uranus of course as has been stated is a signifier of sudden events including earth and weather changes. With this influence and the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Galactic Center we may see MASS EVACUATIONS and large movements of people from several areas around the world. I am only conjecturing since astrology offers multiple possibilities.
