Winter Solstice 2012

Winter Solstice Ceremony of Galactic Rebirth ~ Dec 18 -22, 2012

Isle of Møn, Denmark

The 2012 Winter Solstice marks the completion of a 25,626 year precessional cycle of the Galactic Mayan Long Count Calendar. This crucial turning point marks our personal and planetary rebirth into the next cycle, and heralds the start of 5,125 years of creating harmony between the feminine and the masculine aspects of consciousness.

On December 21st 2012, the mid-winter Sun will appear to emerge out from the ‘Dark Rift’ on the mid-line of the Galactic Equator. The Maya perceived this as the Womb of Creation that births the Light of the Creative Source from the centre of our Galaxy, into human consciousness.

At the moment of Solstice, the Sun’s north-south ‘meridian’ will be aligned over the Isle of Møn in Denmark, intersecting with the Great Female Dragon, or Rainbow Serpent planetary energy Line, which flows through the many ancient sacred mounds of Møn. In England this is known as the Michael-Mary line. From the Isle of Møn, the sacred intention of our Galactic Winter Solstice ceremony can be received into our bodies and flow into the planetary meridian line, around the planet and into the collective consciousness of humanity.

At mid-winter sunrise we will gather inside the ancient mound of Kong Asgershøj to greet the New Sun, welcoming it into the womb and heart of Mother Earth. Later, we will gather for a midday ceremony and celebration at the Medicine Wheel of the North Star, at the exact moment of the Winter Solstice, as the Sun’s meridian passes overhead, welcoming the Galactic energies of Rebirth into our beloved Earth.

Hawaii Sacred Journey - Nov 2012

World-wide Link-up for the November 13th 
Solar Eclipse in the South Pacific

Details of link-up times and locations
 will shortly be posted on this Blog and at
and the Heaven and Earth Community Facebook page

The Significance of the November Solar Eclipse

On November 13th, at the moment of Maximum Eclipse, the Sun’s and Moon’s north-south ‘meridian’ lines will be aligned over Hawaii Big Island and Maui, whilst the Eclipse shadow itself will be crossing the South Pacific, running parallel to the planetary Great Female Dragon (Rainbow Serpent) Line.

This Eclipse is a mirror image of the Annular Eclipse of May 20th 2012, which traversed the North Pacific and crossed the Great Male Dragon (Plumed Serpent) Line at Mount Fuji, Japan and Mount Shasta, California. 

 May 20th & November 13th Eclipse Paths, with Great Male (gold) and Great Female (silver) Dragon Lines

Together these two Eclipses bring the possibility for healing the imbalances between the masculine and feminine aspects of consciousness within humans, societies, countries, businesses, international relations and the planet herself. The May Eclipse brought the conditions for releasing and healing the misaligned energies of the masculine that have resulted in much past destruction, including two world wars, countless nuclear tests in Pacific Islands, and now the current global chaos, created by severe imbalances in the world’s banking systems and big business.

The November 13th Eclipse will enable the feminine aspects of consciousness to begin to move into right relationship with the already healed and healing aspects of the masculine. On that day, Mars also aligns with the Galactic Centre, realigning the energy of the male spiritual warrior back to the creative source of the Galaxy. The presence of the Sun’s and Moon’s meridian lines over Hawaii will enable the full creative potential of the Eclipse to imprint into the sacred islands of Hawaii, the planetary Alta Major Centre, or global energy vortex that can bring us conscious awareness of the sacredness of all life on this planet.

On our sacred journey to Hawaii Big Island and Maui (Nov 1st – 15th), we will connect with these ancient and sacred islands, and with keepers of the kahuna tradition to hold an eclipse ceremony in Maui, and create a resonance of ‘as above, so below’ and assist the profoundly healing energies of the eclipse to come to Earth and be carried out into the planet from this most sacred planetary vortex. If you would like to join us, please let us know as soon as possible.

Eclipse Ceremony 
Once again, we are blessed to be able to hold our ceremony with Lei’ohu Ryder at the lovingly restored Kukuipuka Heiau, overlooking the ocean.

Although the Eclipse itself is not visible in Hawaii, the Sun and Moon’s north – south Meridians will align over Big Island and Maui at the exact moment of Maximum Eclipse, enabling us to help anchor the Eclipse energies into the Planetary Alta Major Centre and Earth Grids. This eclipse heralds a healing and harmonisation of the personal and planetary energies of the Feminine and Masculine, in preparation for the Solar - Galactic Alignment on 21st December.  

The Spiritual Intention for this journey is to work together lovingly as a group, preparing ourselves in body, mind and spirit so that we can become clear channels for anchoring the transformative energies of the Eclipse into the sacred land of Hawaii and Mother Earth. 

With love, joy and blessings,
Marcus and Sue

Summer Solstice 2012

Summer Solstice 2012
20th June - 23.09 UT (GMT) / 21st June - 00:09 BST (01:09 CEDT)

Click Chart to enlarge

At Summer Solstice, we are being reminded of the need to remain true to ourselves, as the Sun forms a ‘sensitivity triangle’, with a quincunx (150°) aspect to the Moon’s North Node in Sagittarius, and semi-sextiles (30°) to Jupiter conjunct retrograde Venus in Gemini and Ceres in Taurus.

There is an urgent need to understand how to align our heart-minds (Sun) with our individual vision for the future (Jupiter) and with our collective spiritual purpose (Moon’s Node). The challenge that faces us is how to fulfil both our individual and collective dreams, whilst simultaneously honouring the body and spirit of beloved Mother Earth (Ceres).

To do this, we need to let go of attachments to old patterns and ways of relating to the apparent dualism of the spiritual and material realms. Our consciousness is being challenged to go beyond the tendency to judge situations or others in black and white terms of ‘this is right or that is wrong’.

The solstice continues the themes of healing and re-balancing the masculine and feminine that were focussed by the May 20th Solar Eclipse and Venus transit. We are being called to grow up spiritually and understand the relativistic nature of how we express the masculine and feminine qualities within ourselves and out in the world. The Eclipse, followed by the Venus transit showed that as soon as one aspect of consciousness changes, then everything else must change to adapt to that.

As 2012 brings us closer towards living in 5th dimensional consciousness, we need to heal our habits of perpetuating any old Piscean Age archetypes, which support the belief that our personal view of the Universe is the only right view – any such belief inevitably creates dualism and division. All we can truly say is that our personal view of the Universe contributes a unique perspective towards the understanding of the whole, and that everyone else’s view is also valid. If we don’t do this, then we are in denial of our Oneness with the whole of life, and certainly not living from 5th dimensional consciousness.

As the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky, the conjunction of Uranus and Pallas Athene in Aries plays a pivotal role in keeping our perceptions and boundaries crystal clear, so that we can live our truth, whilst honouring the integrity of other people’s truth.

There is also a ‘Cradle’ pattern, formed by an opposition between Vesta in Taurus and retrograde Juno in Scorpio, with sextiles to Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Virgo. A ‘Learning Triangle’ between Mercury, Saturn and Mars is woven into the Cradle pattern:  We are being challenged to live in the now and maintain the integrity of the heart, so that we express right relationship in every moment, based on our discernment of the emotional requirements of each situation. Juno and Saturn are both retrograde, meaning that we cannot rely on any rules, or accumulated experiences of the past about the ‘right ways’ to relate to others – what matters is our heart’s ability to respond to the changing needs, and emotional tone of each moment.

Venus Transit - 5th / 6th June

The Venus Transit across the Sun
June 5th – 6th 2012

What is the Venus Transit?

Venus orbits the Sun every 225 Earth days. It gradually shifts its orbit from north to south of the Ecliptic plane, (where the planets orbit around the Sun). Normally, when Venus is conjunct the Sun, it is either above or below the Sun, as viewed from the Earth. 

Venus only crosses in front of the face of the Sun every 100 -120 years, then two transits occur together, 8 years apart. The most recent transit in June 2004 and this one in June 2012 cross the northern hemisphere of the Sun. The next pair of transits in 2117 and 2125 will cross the southern hemisphere of the Sun. Then the next pair of transits in 2247 and 2255 will cross the northern hemisphere again, and so on, alternating from north to south and back again.

Chart from -

When such a transit occurs, it means that the Earth, Venus and the Sun are aligned on the same plane. This is similar to what happens at a Solar Eclipse, when Sun, Moon and Earth are in exact alignment. Venus, however is a planet roughly the size of Earth, and is millions of miles more distant than the Moon, so its transit appears as just a small shadow passing across the face of the Sun.

What is the significance of the Venus Transit?

These rare Venus transits are always highly significant. This one, coming so soon after the Solar Eclipse on May 20th, has added significance during the final stages of the approach to the December Solstice 2012.

The May 20th Eclipse was about releasing and healing old, unbalanced, power-based, abusive or destructive expressions of the masculine energy, and planting the seeds for a new positive, creative, heart-centred expression of the male spiritual warrior. Inevitably, this will bring about the release of old patterns of relationship with the feminine. Both men and women will need to adjust current relationships within the self and with each other, to move into alignment with the new, emerging expression of the positive masculine energies. The Venus transit is ‘eclipsing’ old patterns of relationship and co-dependency that no longer work, now that the new, pure masculine energy has begun to take root.

The Venus transit is the next stage in the process of healing both the masculine and the feminine. Then, on November 13th 2012, the Total Solar Eclipse over the south Pacific will enable the feminine, both within and out in the world, to find her rightful, whole and healthy relationship to the pure masculine. So we can move forward with the seeds of balance planted in Mother Earth and her energy grids, in all our relationships, and then in our local and global structures and institutions.

The Astrology Chart of the Venus Transit

 click chart to enlarge

The chart shows a small ‘learning triangle’ pattern between Mars, the Sun conjunct Venus, and asteroid Vesta. The new masculine energy is being required to release the past and absorb the new. Mars is in Virgo, which is concerned with the process of digestion, letting go of what is not needed and assimilating what is good and healthy for us. Mars makes a square (90°) aspect to retrograde Venus, which is conjunct the Sun in Gemini. The new male frequencies (Mars) are challenging any established patterns of relationship (Venus) that are based on old male patterns of domination or control. 

Venus, being retrograde during the transit, allows for release and healing of these patterns. Venus in Gemini needs to use spiritual discernment to determine what is healthy and wholesome and worth taking forward into the new future. Anything that is no longer an expression of right relationship cn be released, enabling new models and patterns of relationship to emerge. Venus will be advised how to do this by the semi-sextile (30°) aspect to asteroid Vesta. Vesta represents the volcanic fires of transformation within the Earth, and how this manifests through the kundalini energy in the body to create the transformative fire of love within the human heart.

So, the key to us knowing how to balance the masculine and feminine within us is to learn how to go within and listen to the inner knowing at the deepest level of our hearts. Vesta in Taurus can take us into stillness and bring the patience to wait until we know clearly how to move forward and give expression to right relationship in all aspects of our lives, our relationships and how we act in the world. Then this inner knowing can flow back along the trine (120°) aspect to Mars, to heal the unresolved aspects of the old masculine energies.

Just by ‘coincidence’ (ie: everything coinciding at exactly the right moment), NASA’s ‘Dawn’ spacecraft is approaching orbit around Vesta, and is revealing new insights into this fascinating body and the history of the formation of our solar system (see

Another ‘learning triangle’ on the opposite side of the chart, exactly mirrors the Mars, Venus-Sun, Vesta pattern, so that these two patterns appear like angel’s wings on either side of the chart. This pattern has the Moon’s North Node square (90°) to Neptune conjunct Chiron, which are semi-sextile (30°) to Pallas Athene conjunct Uranus, then making a trine (120°) aspect back to the North Node.

The Moon’s North Node in Sagittarius shows the spiritual purpose for the Venus transit. It challenges us to manifest the healing qualities of unconditional love (Neptune conjunct Chiron in Pisces), by following our intuitive knowing and wisdom of what is right for us (Pallas and Uranus in Aries), and carrying that forward in our lives through Right Action.

These two learning patterns show us that Right Relationship and Right Action are mutually inter-dependent, and that you cannot have one without the other. When you bring them both to their full expression, you can soar on angel’s wings to create a new vision in your life and a new world around you.

How to work safely and energetically with the Venus Transit?

As with all eclipse-type events, the key is to work within with the energies, and not to become completely distracted by the spectacle of the outward event. By all means find a way to view the transit safely. This will entail using special eclipse glasses, or a welder’s glass, which are the only truly safe ways to look directly at the Sun. If you have a camera with a digital viewing screen, then you can photograph it that way. Do not on any account look through a camera’s viewing lens. If you have a telescope, you can train it towards the Sun, with a sheet of white paper on the ground below the lens so that you can see the projected image of the Sun and Venus’ shadow on the paper. Do not look directly through the telescope at the Sun.

Before you get to the point of observing the transit, it would be good to spend some time in meditation or quiet reflection, to attune to the energies of the Venus transit.

Suggested Meditation

An easy and simple method is to sit quietly and breathe into your heart and imagine a golden ball of light (the Sun) at your heart chakra, in the centre of your chest. Then breathe the light out and down to connect with the solar plexus chakra, below the ribs and diaphragm – this is the Venus centre in the body. Then breathe up again into the heart chakra, and continue this pattern of breathing in at the heart and out at the solar plexus. As you breathe out, become aware of anything that you wish to let go of, particularly patterns of behaviour in relationships that are no longer serving you, feeding you, or enabling you to give and receive love. As you breathe in, ask what you need in order to change those patterns, and live from a truly heart-centred and loving attitude.

As you follow this process, you may also become aware of another, smaller chakra or energy centre, which is located immediately below the heart centre. This is the ‘Ānanda-kanda’ chakra, which is the means whereby we connect inwardly with our personal connection with the Divine, in order to dissolve our attachments to the emotions, and enable us to express our sense of Oneness in the world and in our relationships with others. When we awaken this centre, then the Venus transit will ‘eclipse’ and release us from the hold of our personal desires and wants, and enable us to move into open and unconditional Right Relationship with self, others and the world.

Where and when will the Transit be visible?

The Venus Transit will be visible around sunset in Canada and North and Central America on 5th June. It will be visible at sunrise on 6th June in most of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and western Russia, all the countries around the Back Sea and Caspian Sea, also India, Indonesia, western China and Western Australia. The entire transit will be visible in eastern Russia, eastern China, New Guinea, Central and Eastern Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Ocean.

The best possible place on Earth to be, where Venus and the Sun are directly overhead at maximum transit, is at the western end of New Caledonia in the Melanesian archipelago, south-west Pacific.
