Eclipse Pics

What Nikki and I found was a feeling of sharing freely ... glasses and viewing boxes with everyone. She said this was the best Manhattan energy she has experienced in a long time. I felt the same about Brooklyn. People across the nation experienced the same camaraderie and fun. With everything going on in the Trump administration, this energy was greatly needed to bond people together and share their stories about the experience. Perhaps it was an indicator of whatever unites us at the end, comes from above.

The eclipse and the bridge - The sun was over the Brooklyn arch of the Verrazano Bridge from our perspective when the eclipse began. It gradually moved west over the water as it completed its journey. It was an interesting experience, but my neighbors and I expected it to get darker but it just seemed bit overcast. I met an 8 year old boy and his mom and took several pics of them so he can share them when he goes back to school. They took these two pics of me as we walked to the park where we met other people.

Here in the city the eclipse peaks at about 2:44pm along with the temps reaching 90°

Effectively, everywhere you turn will look like a sunset.

How will the eclipse affect solar power? animals? human behavior?

Eclipses: Science, History, Mythology, Astrology, Pseudoscience

We arrive at an interesting week highlighted by the total solar eclipse tomorrow. There are 'eclipse chasers' and others who have been waiting for this moment for decades. Many have made this a vacation time or an extended weekend. People are preparing in different parts of the United States to view the eclipse and experience its energies. It could be lots of fun. I'll check out the eclipse from Brooklyn just not sure where. Earlier in the day I have a reading with a client in South Carolina on her birthday. She will have a better view than we do in the city. Enjoy.

This week political and conspiracy buffs await the current turn of events in US history. Are Trump and associates, in or out of the White House, aiming to change the face of the political systems in the United States? Is it to help revolutionize things or as always about power and control ... and of course money. Always there are behind the scenes conspiracies and the players programmed to act them out. Most interesting last week was the removal of Steve Bannon who returned to Breitbart to complete what he believes is his mission. Having a mission is what we are programmed to seek - our purpose for being here - to make a difference etc. etc. etc. I expect Kellyanne Conway to leave next ... and there will be others in the Trump WH ... until there are none. Tick tock.

Tuesday ... yes we will be here Tuesday ... the sun moves into Virgo, which I call Virgo Transition or time of great change - jobs, career, education, relocation, relationships, priorities ... All of this is happening in Mercury Retrograde this year. Happy Birthday to those born in Virgo.

Lunar and Solar eclipses have always been markers of change and evolution, dating to ancient times and civilizations. In the days before humanity became enlightened, the solar eclipse represented a time of fear and darkness. We have learned to see beyond myth and dark magic that controls through illusion, and moved into scientific understanding, though many still hold onto old beliefs linked to fear.

Eclipses not only have gravitational affect on our bodies and planet Earth, but also affect the collective unconscious, the grids, and hold astrological significance in our natal charts, as well as the charts of nations and businesses. An eclipse seems to stop time, stop energy, and stop movement. Where once there was light filtering through the elemental forces of the zodiac into the Earth's aura, there is suddenly darkness, nothingness, a temporary lack of input from the Sun or Moon that serves to bring our awareness closer to the energy of the Solar or Lunar season, and thus intensify it.

The eclipse is the The Black Sun and its symbolism. It is also aligned with prophecies, both ancient and current, about the end of the world - or the hologram Fading to Black. Closure will come at a time people are least expecting it - but most aware and wanting it - based on events in their timelines. It all happens out of the blue. On an intuitive level many will sense the ending in whatever way they are programmed. Everything happening now are precursors to that end.

Steve Bannon - What's Next?

Friday Conspiracy Diversion: Steve Bannon became the 4th Senior advisor to leave the WH in the past 5 weeks returning to Breitbart and vowing to 'go to war' for Trump's agenda. (Never a dull moment). Again you stop and wonder who's calling the shots and what is their agenda. Maybe I watch too much science-fi but could there be one or more alien factions plotting to take over the government ... all the while laughing at Trump and his cronies?

Also in the energies of the eclipse ...

The Black Sun

Once again chaos and violence dominated the grids this week
from the Protests in Charlottesville, Virginia and their aftermath to
terrorism in Spain which may or may have ended as of this post.

Black Sun (Eclipse) as an Occult Symbol

Does this in any way connect with current events?

The term Black Sun (German Schwarze Sonne), also referred to as the Sonnenrad (German for "Sun Wheel"), is a symbol of esoteric and occult significance. Its ancient design is also found on a sun wheel mosaic incorporated into a floor of Wewelsburg Castle during the Nazi era. Today, it may also be used in occult currents of Germanic neopaganism, and in Irminenschaft or Armanenschaft - inspired esotericism - but not necessarily in a racial or neo-Nazi context. Despite its contemporary use, the Black Sun had not been identified with the ornament in Wewelsburg before 1991, although it had been discussed as an esoteric concept in neo-Nazi circles since the 1950s.

The Black Sun in Mesoamerican Mythology

The Black Sun in Mesoamerican Mythology has many mystical meanings, among them it is connected to the god Quetzalcoatl and his penetration in the Underworld through the west door after his diurnal passage on the sky. For the Mexicas there were two suns, the young Day sun and the ancient sun, the Dark sun. Some scholars regard the mythological Black sun as the ancient female origin of all, it is both tomb and womb. This way, it is the oneness that uniformly integrates unawareness, death, and yet an expectation of fecundity. The Aztecs associated the passage of the Black Sun, on its nightly journey through the underworld with the image of a butterfly. The butterfly, in turn, is an archetypical symbol of the transcendent soul, transformation and mystical rebirth, whereas also seen in the figure of the frightening earth goddess Itzpapalotl, the "Obsidian Butterfly", that devoured people during the solar eclipses, while the Aztec underworld was the eternal dwelling place of the souls. According to the Codex Rios, the underworld was made of nine layers. The first level was the Earth's surface, which also had the entrance, or the face of a gigantic toad that devoured the dead and gave access to the other eight lower levels. The souls of the dead occupied the ninth level known as "Mictlan Opochcalocan".

Does anyone "see" Quetzalcoatl and/or the 2012 Mayan Prophecy Grid? I see nothing as if they were deleted. So why is this part of the hologram still running? Hmmm ....

As to whether Nibiru (and the Reptilians) are going to make an appearance at this time - the answer is No even by Zacharia Sitchin's calculations.

The Black Feather Sun

The Black Feathered Sun is a Plains Indian symbol with stylized feathers pointing both inwards and outwards; inward towards the center and outward to the circumference. It combines the symbols of the sun and the eagle and depicts the universe; the center; solar power; radiation of power; and majesty. - An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols. This image was originally sent to me by a reader of Crystalinks in the beginning, 1995. Seeing it triggered something having do with dark matter or dark energy or antimatter or more to the point the black hole from which the hologram emerges.

Removing Two Robert E. Lee Plagues
in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn

Wednesday August 16, 2017

This morning I walked around the corner to St. John's Episcopal Church in Bay Ridge after reading about the removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's plaques, outside a local church, and made the video above.

There are many landmark monuments in this area once traversed by famous men like George Washington and Robert E. Lee. For many people - monuments - no the matter where they are found across the planet - are messages set in stone to honor someone or something and to be remembered by those who would follow and create a new day (experience).

The world is changing but first we have to clean up our old messes if only symbolically and remember the nature of reality. Everything we experience in physical reality is built on dramas and conspiracies symbolically seen through the "lens of time" or the "eye of the camera" projecting images into this reality for us to experience. Watch the Video - skip to 48:00 minutes

Americans have fought for freedom in many wars continuing on today with bigger weapons - from nuclear or cyber. Always there is the hope that we have become a civilized species tolerant of our differences in the algorithm of human design.

Emotions have been heating up the past few days as we approach the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. It all started last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. 2017 Incident in Charlottesville, Virginia

Whatever is going on behind the scenes seems to be uniting us as a country fighting for human rights and equality all while dealing with the abhorrent behavior of current president Donald Trump who seems to side with racist groups. He Went Rogue: President Trump's Staff Stunned After Latest Charlottesville Remarks

Donald Trump did not accidentally praise neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and pro-confederate demonstrators who killed a young woman last weekend and injured 20 others, last weekend. He is building back something that was a long-standing force for political power and terrorism in this country for generations. He's now doing what he can to resurrect it.

Here's something interested reported last night by Rachel Maddow (with written proof) and covered in Wikipedia

    On Memorial Day in 1927, the Ku Klux Klan marched in Queens to protest that "Native-born Protestant Americans" were being "assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City". Fred Trump, Donald trump's father, was one of seven men who were arrested that day "on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so." In 2016, Vice magazine reported on their investigation of earlier newspaper clippings and found that Trump was the only person arrested who was not charged with any crime, leading them to conclude that he could have been a bystander; they also speculated that Trump may have been a member of the KKK, which had gone through a revival in urban areas after 1915. When asked about the issue in September 2015 by The New York Times, Donald Trump, then a candidate for presidency of the United States, denied that his father had been arrested, or that he had been in the KKK.

Religious leaders to remove plaques in Brooklyn commemorating visit from Robert E. Lee   New York Daily News- August 16, 2017

Ripples from the violent protests in Charlottesville have reached Brooklyn, where religious leaders had a plaque removed today marking Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's stay in the Brooklyn. Leaders of the New York Episcopal Diocese announced Tuesday that they will be removing two plaques that have been standing outside St. John's Episcopal Church in Bay Ridge since 1912.

"I think it is the responsible thing for us to do," Bishop Lawrence Provenzano told Newsday. "People for whom the Civil War is such a critical moment - and particularly the descendants of former slaves shouldn't walk past what they believe is a church building and see a monument to a Confederate general." The United Daughters of the Confederacy commissioned the plaques to mark the spot where Lee planted a tree outside the Fort Hamilton Parkway house of worship near 99th St. - just outside of the Fort Hamilton Army Base.

"This Tree Was Planted By General Robert Edward Lee while Stationed At Fort Hamilton from 1842 to 1847," one of the two plaques read. "The Tree Has Been Restored And This Tablet Placed Upon It By the New York Chapter United Daughters of The Confederacy. April 1912."

Lee is said to have planted several trees outside the church - which is currently being sold - during his stay at Fort Hamilton in the 1840s, about 20 years before he was named general of the Confederate Army. The tree the plaque stands before is a 'descendant' of the original tree Lee planted.

After white supremacists brought death and mob violence to Charlottesville on Saturday, Provenzano directed all of the churches in the diocese to remember the people of Charlottesville, especially those targeted by the protests. The marchers in Virginia do not represent who we are as God's people or citizens of this nation. In the face of such evil and ignorance, the church must stand in prayer and witness to the all inclusive love of Jesus Christ, he said.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Army shot down demands to rename two streets inside the Fort named after Lee and Stonewall Jackson, who also served at the base two decades before the Civil War.

"Wow Signal" 40 Yeas Later

  "Wow Signal" Google Videos

The Wow! space signal was heard 40 years ago... Is the mystery now solved? - August 15, 2017

Wow! mystery signal from space finally explained  
PhysOrg - June 7, 2017

"Wow Signal" was a strong, narrowband radio signal detected by Dr. Jerry R. Ehman on August 15, 1977 while working on a SETI project at the Big Ear radio telescope of the Ohio State University. The signal bore expected hallmarks of potential non-terrestrial and non-solar system origin. It lasted for 72 seconds, the full duration Big Ear observed it, and has not been detected again, or not reported to the public. It has been the focus of attention in the mainstream media when talking about SETI results. Amazed at how closely the signal matched the expected signature of an interstellar signal in the antenna used, Ehman circled the signal on the computer printout and wrote the comment "Wow!" on its side. This comment became the name of the signal. On the 35th anniversary of the Wow! signal, Arecibo Observatory beamed a response from humanity, containing 10,000 Twitter messages, in the direction from which the signal originated.

Was the Wow Signal our first detection of extraterrestrials? It might have been, but no scientist would make such a claim. Scientific experiment is inherently skeptical. This isn't just a sour attitude; it's the only way to avoid routinely fooling yourself. Until and unless the cosmic beep measured in Ohio is found, the Wow Signal will remain a What Signal.

The Wow Signal came from the direction of Sagittarius.

Flooding of the Nile

The annual flooding cycle of the Nile goes back to ancient times. It is celebrated by Egyptians beginning August 15 lasting two weeks, known as Wafaa El-Nil. Were it not for the Nile River, Egyptian civilization could not have developed, as it is the only significant source of water in this desert region. Ancient Egyptians believed that the Nile flooded every year because of Isis's tears of sorrow for her dead husband, Osiris. The Nile flows from south to north, to its delta on the Mediterranean Sea. The ancient Egyptians did not realize that the flood was due to rains on the mountains to the south. It was seen as the annual coming of the god Hapi. The rains would swell the different tributaries and other rivers that joined to become the Nile River, generally regarded as the longest river in the world.

Woodstock Music & Art Fair (informally, Woodstock) was a music festival, billed as "An Aquarian Exposition", held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York. Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend in front of nearly half a million concertgoers. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

Reality Check August 2017

Sunday was a gorgeous summer day here in the city especially if one was to stroll along 5th Avenue ... And then there it was ... emotions signaling fear and anger as you got closer to Trump Tower .... not quite sure if chaos would erupt following the Incident in Charlottesville, Virginia the day before, continuing into Sunday.

As if in a movie, the scene opened to at least 1,000 demonstrators swarming Trump Tower, yelling "no Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA" as the president returned to his New York City home. Activists had planned protests as soon as the White House announced Trump's return, the demonstrations supercharged by his Saturday refusal to condemn white supremacists in Charlottesville.

This was Trump's first visit to Trump Tower since he was inaugurated. How lucky he is, I thought, to feel safe in his home, sleep in his own bed, which seemed so important to him before he moved to the White House, while much of the country remains threatened moreso since he took office and violence increases. Will tensions alleviate after Steve Bannon is gone? I don't think Americans will be happy until Donald Trump joins the long list of people who have left the White House this year.

As local reporters offered protesters the opportunity to condemn white supremacy, it made me wonder how far we've come as a species. With all of our healing and awareness and feeling superior to humans of the past, how much have we actually evolved, or were allowed to evolve based on human design? Some suggested people were hired to stage the protest, but isn't all of reality a staged conspiracy?

We are still caught up in the age-old algorithm of power and control of one group over another. What part of the human experiment actually evolved since the beginning? We are different today because of science and technology making our lives easier in many ways and yet we exist in a hologram where the evolution of emotions can still revert to primitive levels.

For today we remain a nation divided, tensions growing within and without, the greatest threat as yet unknown. To discover the truth is to understand how we will find freedom the ultimate goal of humanity's journey. We will probably not find that answer until the end of the illusion of time in which we immerse our thoughts and actions.

Down here in physical reality, I return to the thought, Everything is a diversion and time-fill. What's really going on behind the scenes and who controls our journey? How much longer are we destined to remain here, prisoners of our own emotions and those of others?" The total solar eclipse is just one week away - with a new moon in Leo. Will the mighty lion roar or sleep on?

Sunday, August 13, 2017


We remain a nation divided, growing tensions within and without, the greatest threat as yet unknown. To discover the truth is to understand how we will find freedom sought throughout humanity's journey. We will probably not find that answer until the end of the illusion of time in which we immerse our thoughts and actions.

The bitter ideological divisions splitting the United States exploded into violence yesterday in Charlottesville, Va., where white nationalists had gathered to protest the city's plan to remove a statue memorializing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee. An Ohio man was charged with murder after a car he was driving plowed into a crowd of counter demonstrators, killing at least one person and injuring at least 19 others. About 35 were injured over all in Saturday's violence. Terry McAuliffe, Virginia's governor, declared a state of emergency. Adding to the turmoil, a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed southwest of Charlottesville, killing two troopers. The cause was not known, but the authorities said the helicopter had been monitoring the protests. Many of the demonstrators wore helmets and carried shields, waved Confederate flags and chanted neo-Nazi slogans. Trump -- once again -- failed to condemn the alt-right, white supremacists.

Cruising through Life ~ Queen Mary 2 Adventures

Does anyone remember when I photographed the Queen Mary 2 as it made
its maiden trans-atlantic voyage into New York Harbor April 22, 2004?

Queen Mary 2 today

Late Saturday afternoon I went to the promenade to watch the ocean liners on their way to various destinations. While sitting on a bench I met the nicest couple - Kathy and Jim from Bay Ridge - my age - whose friends were on the Queen Mary 2 sailing off to England and beyond. We waved and took pics - sent texts - then sat and talked until the sun set. It's all water under the bridge.

Jim took this extreme close-up as Kathy laughed and said I have a ship above my head. Maybe it was another kind of ship? (wink)

Last week The X--Files started filming Season 11 in Vancouver. The show will have fewer mythology episodes as they have all been rehashed too many times. Let's get to alien agendas and dissemination.

I still record the old shows that air locally, again only watching episodes about aliens. In the latest rerun, agents Mulder, Scully, and Doggett investigated an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. The episode was a series milestone, and featured the last appearance of the alien black oil before the series finale. The episode's title "Vienen" is a Spanish word meaning "they come" or "they are coming". Read more

Suicide is about life, anxiety disorders, and clinical depression

Most adults who attempt suicide have contemplated it in the past and may have made an attempt in their late teens or early twenties. It's about mental disorders, abuse, and not seeing any way out of their current situation. If we want to equate this to what's going on in the world today, all you have to do is look around at the threats both external and internal. I suppose the end of the hologram will challenge the best of us especially those who see no solutions in the future.

Suicide: Statistics, Warning Signs and Prevention   Live Science - August 11, 2017
Every year, 1 million adults report making a suicide attempt, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Worldwide, 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) Every year, tens of thousands of Americans die from suicide. It is the third leading cause of death among young people between the ages of 10 and 24, amounting to about 4,600 deaths a year that are reported.
