“Holding the Line: Virgo 2014 Cycle”

Full Moon Phase: illumination

Moon in Aries/Taurus

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess of Beauty) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: find goodness

Negative Imprint: death

Positive Imprint: life

Sabaoth the Sun released an X1.6-class flare with coronal mass ejection yesterday at 1:45 pm ET/5:45 pm UT. To determine the most specific Earth-affecting energetic imprint of the flare, we look to the energy that the Moon was disseminating at the time of the flare. The Moon was located at the degree of “a flock of wild geese.” This symbol discusses spreading our wings and taking flights of freedom. It speaks to liberation and heightened attunement to the rhythms and cycles of the planet.

The lower octave of the energy produces feelings of not knowing where we are going and disillusionment with poor leadership.

We don’t exactly know where we are going, but we know we are being lead by a higher power – a good leader. We also know that all month long we have the guidance and protection of two guardian angels (the Sabian symbol for the current lunar cycle).

With this, today’s energy moves us on. We feel the need to move on to other things and other ways. Using a feather from one of the “flock of wild geese” as a quill, Shodashi draws us into closer alignment with the highest expressions of our destinies. It may not look or feel grand now, but it is.

It is a good idea to take breaks today – many of them. This will help us better complete or accomplish what needs to be done. Today’s energy has deep, painful, and sad energetic imprints. This fact makes it hard for us to concentrate on things because we are naturally pulled toward this strong wave (since it is so deeply and powerfully set). We go about our business, awake and aware of the potential for geopolitical hijinks, but the predominant energy attempts to pull us down. It’s over there off to the side trying to reel us in. Taking many breaks (mini-breaks) and taking many deep breaths helps wise owls move through this energy.

This means we cannot linger in the past. The past is dissolving, revealing the true “promised land.” The world we want to have and the life we want to live exists. We are pulling toward it, merging realities.

Today is a good day to give thanks (thanks, Shodashi and Matangi!) for our blessings and gifts. It is a good day to practice things – many things – but especially patience. It is a good day to recognize patterns. It’s a good day for quiet reflection. It is a good day to know you can weather storms.

It is a good day. The Sun shines. Children sing. Flowers bloom. Birds fly. Love lasts.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Buried beneath Stonehenge, even more henges? – CSMonitor.com

Buried beneath Stonehenge, even more henges?

Using ground-piercing radar and other high-tech equipment, scientists have detected at least 17 other ancient monuments buried beneath Stonehenge.

The red circles mark the spots where archaeologists found satellite shrines around StonehengeThe megaliths of Stonehenge, which were raised above England’s Salisbury Plain some 5,000 years ago, may be among the most extensively studied archaeological features in the world. Still, the monument is keeping secrets.

Scientists have just unveiled the results of a four-year survey of the landscape around Stonehenge. Using non-invasive techniques like ground-penetrating radar, the researchers detected signs of at least 17 previously unknown Neolithic shrines.

Stonehenge is undoubtedly a major ritual monument, which people may have traveled considerable distances to come to, but it isn’t just standing there by itself,” project leader Vincent Gaffney, an archaeologist at the University of Birmingham in the U.K., told Live Science. “It’s part of a much more complex landscape with processional and ritual activities that go around it. That’s very different from how this has been viewed before. The important point is Stonehenge is not alone. There was lots of other associated ritual activity going on around it.” [See Images of Hidden Stonehenge Monuments]Scholars still aren’t sure why Stonehenge was built, as the monument’s Neolithic creators left behind no written records. But the ruins, which align with the sun during the solstices, stand as an impressive feat of prehistoric engineering. The biggest stones at the site, known as sarsens, are up to 30 feet (9 meters) tall and weigh 25 tons (22.6 metric tons); they are believed to have been dragged from Marlborough Downs, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north.

At the newfound satellite shrines around Stonehenge, Gaffney and his team revealed underground impressions, presumably left by wooden post holes, stones and ditches — some of which extend up to 13 feet (4 m) deep. Images created with geophysical prospecting tools show that some of these smaller monuments had a concentric circle design, much like Stonehenge.

The researchers also peered inside the Cursus, an immense prehistoric enclosure to the north of Stonehenge that dates back to about 3500 B.C. Stretching about 1.8 miles (3 km) long and 330 feet (100 m) wide, the Cursus had been deemed a barrier to Stonehenge, but it was so big that no one really knew what was inside of it, said Gaffney.

When the researchers surveyed this area, they found a large pit buried on the eastern end of the Cursus. This pit was aligned with Stonehenge’s “avenue,” a processional path that lines up with the sun at dawn during the mid-summer solstice. The team also found a matching pit at the other end of the Cursus. This pit is aligned with the Heel Stone at the entrance to Stonehenge, which is aligned with sunset during the solstice, Gaffney said.

“Suddenly, you’ve got a link between this very large monument and Stonehenge through two massive pits, which appear to be aligned on the sunrise and sunset on the mid-summer solstice,” Gaffney said.The researchers also mapped dozens of burial mounds in the area, including a long barrow that dates back to an era before Stonehenge. The team detected a timber building buried inside the mound, and the project leaders think this structure might have been used for the ritual inhumation and defleshing of the dead.

Gaffney said it will take his team about a year just to process all the data they collected during their 120 days of fieldwork over the span of four years. And then it will likely be up to English Heritage (the government body in charge of archaeological and historic sites) to decide which features to dig up in a more traditional excavation. Further study should help reveal the ages of these monuments, pits and burial mounds, and help explain how Stonehenge evolved over time.

The findings were revealed as part of the British Science Festival and will be featured in a new BBC Two series, “Operation Stonehenge: What Lies Beneath,” which will air in the U.K. Thursday (Sept. 11) at 8 p.m. BST. A U.S. version of the special, dubbed “Stonehenge Empire,” will air on the Smithsonian Channel Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project is led by the University of Birmingham with the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology.
