Let me start by saying that EVERY SINGLE ONE of the people on that boat were there for a reason!  Each one of them was a necessary part of the evil magick the elite are working.  They were sacrificed.  I have absolutely no doubt that this was a very deliberate and very strategic act.  That is my opinion, to which I am entitled.  You can research this information for yourself and develope your own conclusions. 
Secondly, this article is written in the hope of encouraging you to look deeper.  To get past your cognitive dissonance and seek out the truth.  We need to get beyond just recognizing their symbols and following their numbers, and get down to what they are actually doing and from whom they are acquiring their power. 
Paganism is rampant in the world today.  IF you have not recognized that yot, WAKE UP!  No matter what those who practice it will tell you, THE TRUTH IS that ALL PAGANISM LEADS TO HUMAN SACRIFICE AND ULTIMATELY TO CANNIBALISM!  RESEARCH IT FOR YOURSELF!  I don’t have time to go into that here.   This article is focused on what is happening THIS MONTH, and what happened on the Conception.
These ANCIENT DEITIES are very REAL!   They are not Gods.  They are FALLEN ANGELS.  They are Stars.  Stars are beings.  Spiritual Being of light.  Get over it.  There are no “Planets” to which you may travel and/or on which you may live.
These beings are back…because we are in the last days.  If you want to know what they plan for you… RESEARCH!  Find out what happened in the ancient times, when they ruled the earth!   
The days are coming when YOU will SEE these beings.  And it will be a site to terrifying you will not be able to stand.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.    Luke 21:25&26

For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. – Luke 21:22
I understand that it is hard for you to accept that people can do such horribly evil things.  BUT, these people are driven by the very demons that they call upon.  They opened themselves up to these entities in their search for power and control, not realizing that they were inviting in the forces which would take FULL CONTROL of them and USE THEM FOR  UNSPEAKABLE EVIL!

On Monday, September 2, 2019, about 3:14 a.m. Pacific daylight time, US Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles/Long Beach received a distress call from the 75-foot commercial diving vessel Conception, with 39 persons on board. The Conception was owned and operated by Truth Aquatics, Inc., based in Santa Barbara, California. The Conception was classified by the Coast Guard as a small passenger vessel that took passengers on dive excursions in the waters around the Channel Islands off the coast of Santa Barbara. The accident voyage was a three-day diving trip to the Channel Islands. On the last night of the voyage, the vessel was anchored in Platts Harbor off Santa Cruz Island, 21.5 nautical miles south-southwest of Santa Barbara, when it caught fire. Weather conditions were reported as slight to no winds with patchy fog, 2–3-foot seas, and air and water temperature about 65°F. The Conception was carrying 39 persons, 6 of which were crew. Thirty-three passengers and one crewmember died.
The wood and fiberglass vessel was built in 1981. The vessel had three levels: the uppermost sun deck, containing the wheelhouse and crew rooms; the main deck, which included the salon and galley; and the lower deck within the hull, which housed the passenger berthing (bunkroom) and shower room, as well as the engine room and tanks.
Initial interviews of three crewmembers revealed that no mechanical or electrical issues were reported. At the time of the fire, five crewmembers were asleep in berths behind the wheelhouse, and one crewmember was asleep in the bunkroom, which was accessed from the salon down a ladderwell in the forward, starboard corner of the compartment. The bunkroom had an emergency escape hatch located on the aft end, which also exited to the salon. There were two, locally-sounding smoke detectors in the overhead of the bunkroom.
A crewmember sleeping in the wheelhouse berths was awakened by a noise and got up to investigate. He saw a fire at the aft end of the sun deck, rising up from the salon compartment below. The crewmember alerted the crew behind the wheelhouse. As  crewmembers awoke, the captain radioed a distress message to the Coast Guard.
The crewmembers attempted to access the salon and passengers below. Unable to use the aft ladder, which was on fire, the crewmembers jumped down to the main deck (one crewmember broke his leg in the process) and tried to access the salon and galley compartment, which was fully engulfed by fire at the aft end and by thick smoke in the forward end, through a forward window.
Unable to open the window and overwhelmed by smoke, the crew jumped overboard. Two crewmembers and the captain swam to the stern, reboarded the vessel, opened the hatch to the engine room, and saw no fire. Access to the salon through the aft doors was blocked by fire, so they launched a small skiff and picked up the remaining two crewmembers in the water.
They transferred to a recreational vessel anchored nearby (Grape Escape) where the captain continued to radio for help, while two crewmembers returned to the Conception to search for survivors around the burning hull. Local Coast Guard and fire departments arrived on scene to extinguish the fire and conduct search and rescue. The vessel burned to the waterline by morning
and subsequently sank in about 60 feet of water.
Later that day, the Coast Guard declared the accident a major marine casualty. The NTSB was named as the lead federal agency for the safety investigation and launched a full team to Santa Barbara, arriving on scene the following morning. The Coast Guard, Truth Aquatics, Inc., Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, and Santa Barbara County Fire Department were named as
parties to the NTSB investigation.
Investigators have collected documents from recent Coast Guard inspections and visited another Truth Aquatics vessel, Vision, a vessel similar to the Conception. Salvage operations to bring the wreckage to the surface for examination and documentation have begun. Investigators plan to examine current regulations regarding vessels of this type, year of build, and operation; early-warning and smoke-detection and alarm systems; evacuation routes; training; and current company policies and procedures. Efforts continue to determine the source of the fire.

A member of the crew told of hearing a noise from his bunk on the wheelhouse deck of the Conception and seeing flames erupting from the galley, Homendy said, adding that he told investigators he never heard smoke alarms.

Frantic crew members jumped from the bridge to the main deck, one of them breaking a leg, but could not go any farther down, Homendy said.

“Due to the heat and flames and smoke, the crew had to jump from the boat,” she said, adding that two of the survivors were able to swim to an inflatable skiff at the back of the ship and rescue the rest of the surviving crew members.

Early NTSB Report Says No Crewmembers Were Awake When Diving Boat Caught Fire

The two-page report confirmed that all six crew members were asleep at about 3 a.m. when the 75-foot boat, anchored off Santa Cruz Island, caught fire. One crew member sleeping in a wheelhouse berth was awakened by a noise, according to the report. The crew member got up to see a fire rising from the compartment below and alerted others.

The Conception was anchored just off the north side Santa Cruz Island at Dick’s Harbor in 65 feet of water when the U.S. Coast Guard and Ventura County Fire Department responded to a reported fire around 3:28 a.m.  Wikipedia

Platt’s Harbor, Santa Cruz Island

Platt’s Harbor, Santa Cruz Island

Dick’s Harbor, Santa Cruz Island (Dick’s Cove, Dix Harbor, Platts Anchorage) is located on the north side of the island inside Platt’s Harbor, to the west of Twin Harbors and Orizaba Flats. In the first part of the 20th century, this location was used frequently by camping parties due to the convenience of a running spring located in the canyon.

The location was named for fisherman, Richard Jenkins (1821-1900) who had a camp located at this anchorage. In a letter dated September 14, 1874 U. S. Coast Survey employee, Stehman Forney, notes this place is called “Platts or Dick’s Harbor.”

SANTA CRUZ  –  is a Spanish or Portuguese term meaning “holy cross” and referring to the cross on which Jesus was crucified.  (a slap in the face to Jesus Christ and the price he paid on the cross.  In their manifestation of the conception of the thing or the being they are conceiving or to which they are giving birth.)

Grape Escape  (name of the rescuing vessel)  Fallen Escape from the “Grapes of Wrath”

The “Battle Hymn of the Republic“, also known as “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory” outside of the United States, is a lyric by the abolitionist writer Julia Ward Howe using the music from the song “John Brown’s Body“. Howe’s more famous lyrics were written in November 1861 and first published in The Atlantic Monthly in February 1862. The song links the judgment of the wicked at the end of the age (Old Testament, Isaiah 63New TestamentRevelation 19) with the American Civil War. Since that time, it has become an extremely popular and well-known American patriotic song Wikipedia

September    Pagan Holidays – 

Celtic Tree Months

Hazel Moon: August 5 – September 1

Hazel nuts

The Hazel Moon was known to the Celts as Coll, which translates to “the life force inside you.” This is the time of year when Hazelnuts are appearing on the trees, and are an early part of the harvest. Hazelnuts are also associated with wisdom and protection. Hazel is often associated in Celtic lore with sacred wells and magical springs containing the salmon of knowledge. This is a good month to do workings related to wisdom and knowledge, dowsing and divination, and dream journeys. If you’re a creative type, such as an artist, writer, or musician, this is a good month to get your muse back, and find inspiration for your talents. Even if you normally don’t do so, write a poem or song this month.
I don’t have room to put them all into this page, but if you go back and look through the victims you will find there were several who were in the arts, actors, singer, dancers, painters, photographers, film makers.  

Vine Moon: September 2 – September 29

The Vine month is a time of great harvest — from the grapes of the Mediterranean to the fruits of the northern regions, the Vine produces fruits we can use to make that most wondrous concoction called wine. The Celts called this month Muin. The Vine is a symbol of both happiness and wrath — passionate emotions, both of them. Do magical workings this month connected to the Autumn Equinox, or Mabon, and celebrate garden magic, joy and exhilaration, wrath and rage, and the darker aspect of the mother goddess (Venus, Diana, Mary, Gaia, Shiva Artemus, Sophia). Use the leaves of the Vines to enhance your own ambition and goals. during this month. The month of Vine is also a good time to get balanced, as there are equal hours of darkness and light.

Diversity Holidays

September 1: Hijri New Year, the day that marks the beginning of the new Islamic calendar year.

September 2: Labor Day in the United States. Labor Day honors the contribution that laborers have made to the country and is observed on the first Monday of September.  I find this very interesting when you consider that they are working very hard to take away all of our jobs!  Put all the labor force out of business and make us slaves of the state. 

September 2: Ganesh Chaturthi, a Hindu holiday lasting around 10 days, where the elephant-headed Hindu God is praised and given offerings.  Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chavithi is a Hindu festival celebrating the arrival of Ganesha to earth from ‘Kailash Parvat’ with his mother goddess Parvati/Gauri. Ganesh is son of SHIVA and Parvati. The festival is marked with the installation of Ganesha clay idols privately in homes, or publicly on elaborate pandals. Wikipedia  So they are celebrating the arrival of the SON OF SHIVA but erecting his image in their homes and their cities/villages. Can anyone say calling in the AntiChrist? 

September 1—Jupiter & Juno—dies fasti

There are two temples dedicated to Jupiter dedicated by Augustus on this date. One was dedicated to Jupiter Liber or Libertas, the God of liberty of Osco-Umbrian origin. Unlike Dionysus, with whom Liber later became associated, Jupiter Liber had nothing to do with wine. Rather, he presided over creativity or the creative force (Adkins’ Dictionary 122).

Also on September 1, Camillus vowed a temple to Juno Regina. Camillus’ s capture of the city of Veii in 396 BCE is a fascinating example of the Roman rite of evocatio. The Romans were having a very difficult time capturing the besieged Etruscan city, and so Camillus took a rather drastic move in stealing its patron deity. The rite of evocatio involves luring a deity from her home by promises of more grandiose worship elsewhere. In Camillus’s case, it worked like a charm. He built Juno a beautiful temple in Rome in 392 BCE, and in it he put the wooden statue he had brought from Veii. This is how Juno came to be respected as one of the most important deities in Rome.

September 1:  Historical Regatta, Venice

I initially wasn’t sure if I should include this historical event.  However, as things played out in my research… this topic of REVENGE is becoming a common theme.  Stay with me and you will see.

On this day in Tudor history, 2nd September 1591, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, naval commander and explorer Sir Richard Grenville died at sea from injuries sustained while commanding his ship, The Revenge, in the Battle of Flores in the Azores. Unfortunately, Grenville’s death was a result of him disobeying orders and doing his own thing.Alfred, Lord Tennyson, wrote about the battle and the loss of The Revenge in his “The Revenge: A Ballad of the Fleet”, and in today’s talk, Claire Ridgway, founder of the Tudor Society, shares excerpts from Tennyson’s poem and explains what exactly happened at the battle.

Please don’t kill me…   I can’t breathe… Please don’t kill me… FUCK!

The captain of Monday’s doomed Santa Cruz boat describes in a chilling distress call how all of his passengers are trapped below deck — “with no escape hatch.”

Audio of the harrowing 3:14 a.m. recording includes a Coast Guard operator first frantically asking for information on the emergency off the coast of southern California.

“What is the emergency? Over. … Conception, what is the emergency? Over!” the operator says, referring to the diving tour boat.

A man who later identifies himself as the captain responds, “On board a vessel on fire.”

“Your vessel is on fire? Roger. Are you aboard the Conception?” the Coast Guard worker asks.

The captain confirms he is from the craft and says, “There’s 33 people on board the vessel on fire. They can’t get off.”

The Coast Guard worker responds, “Roger. Are they locked inside the boat? Roger. Can you get back on board and unlock the doors so they can get off? Roger. You don’t have any firefighter gear at all, no fire extinguishers or anything?”

The captain’s reply is unclear.

The Coast Guard operator says, “Is this the captain of the Conception?”

“Roger,” the man says.

The Coast Guard worker asks, “Was that all the crew that jumped off?”

The unidentified captain replies, “Roger.”

The operator asks, “Is the vessel fully engulfed now?”

The Coast Guard worker asks, “How far away are you from the boat right now?”

Santa Cruz Island boat in deadly fires was on 3-day diving excurtion.

The captain replies, “Roger. And there’s no escape hatch for any of the people on board.”

The captain’s answer is unclear amid the static.

“Are there any other vessels in that area that can help with firefighting?” the operator asks.

Only static can be heard on the recording.

The Coast Guard worker is then heard putting out a general distress call, saying it “received a report of a vessel on fire with 33 people, correction, 34 people, trapped below deck … Any vessel in the area that can rend any assistance, please do so.”

A man responds through the emergency radio channel, “I heard a mayday call there … I’m 15 minutes away from that location. Would I be of assistance in that time frame?”

The operator replies, “If you could respond, we would appreciate it. Also, if you have any firefighting gear, hose, anything like that, that would be great.”

Another nearby boat — the Grape Escape, which rescued crew members including the captain — is involved in another exchange with an emergency operator.

“Is the captain of the vessel on your vessel?” a Coast Guard worker asks the captain of the Grape Escape, who replies yes. first reported on the audio.

There also was audio posted online that included a man screaming, “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!” and “I can’t breathe!”

All five crew members including the captain were on the bridge at the time of the pre-dawn fire and escapted, authorities said.

Thirty of the 34 passengers aboard have yet to be accounted for. Rescue workers recovered four bodies near the ship Monday afternoon.

‘I Can’t Breathe’: Listen to Mayday Call From Boat That Caught Fire, Sunk Off Santa Cruz Island

Through the static, the man is heard again as he repeatedly says the Conception’s name and follows with, “a vessel on fire.”

“Your vessel is on fire, is that correct?” the dispatcher replies.

“Roger, there are 33 people on board the vessel that’s on fire and they can’t get off?” a man says. It’s unclear who’s speaking. “Roger, are they locked in the boat? Roger, can you get back on board and unlock the boat– unlock the doors so they can get off?”

The person proceeds to ask the man questions about the fire and the crew, and whether he’s the captain and if they’re got any firefighting gear. But there was no response, or the released audio did not include the replies.

“Roger, how far away are you from the boat right now? Are there any other vessels in that area that can help with firefighting?” a man asks.

A short time later, seemingly on a different call, a U.S. Coast guard dispatcher can then be heard reporting 34 people trapped below deck on the burning boat.

Someone else confirms that the captain is aboard the Grape Escape, good Samaritan’s boat, and that the fire is visible.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said calls came from the Grape Escape after the initial call from the Conception.

“Roger, and there’s no escape hatch for any of the people on board,” an unidentified man then says.

Let’s look at the numbers:

Occultist Numerology (Numbers and Meanings)

The most venerated occult numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, and multiples thereof, especially 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77. A triplication of numbers is also considered sacred (possibly even more sacred) to the occultist: 111, 222, 333, and so fourth. The number 5 is the number of Death; also, an extremely sacred number is the double 11, as in 11:11, or 11/11/11.

The number 7 and 12 are also an extremely important number universally. Seven is a number of complement and is considered a Divine number. Seven days in a week, seven colors to the rainbow. The occult will also use this number 7, but their favorite numbers are 11 and 6.The occult avoids using the numbers and multiplications of 4, 8, 10, and 12, unless they correlate with their numbers.


1. Three (3) is the first sacred number, the first perfect number (Westcott, p. 41). Three represents the Pagan Trinity.” (Westcott, p. 37). It is represented geo-metrically in the triangle, and spiritually as the Third Eye Of Hinduism. Occultists will multiply and add three to other sacred numbers to create new numbers. However, they also group threes in two’s and threes, because they believe in the principle of “intensification”, i.e., that greater power is achieved when a sacred number is grouped. In the case of three, greater intensification is achieved when it is shown as 33, or 333. 333 + 333 equals 666. Occultists have used 333 as the hidden symbol by which they present the more offensive number 666. When the details of an event are so arranged as to contain certain sacred occult numbers or numeric combinations, this is literally an occult signature on the event. Mathematically, 666 can be created when three pairs of threes are added. Thus, (3+3) + (3+3) + (3+3) = 666. Now, eliminate the parentheses and the plus sign, and you have 33 space, 33 space, 33, representing the number 666.

2. Six (6) is the next sacred number, representing the number of the soul of man (Westcott, p. 66). This shows the omnipotent power of God, as this belief parallels Revelation 13:18, where God assigns 666 to man and to the beast. Six is also believed to be “all-sufficient”. This parallels

Biblical teaching, which states that man’s great sin is pride in himself.

3. Seven (7) is a sacred number. Van Buren calls 7 “one of the most sacred of all the numbers…the Invisible Centre, the Spirit of everything”. (p. 39) Since multiplication of seven creates an even more powerful sacred number, we should not be surprised that 3×7, or 21, is considered powerful .

Thus, when Adam Weishaupt formed the Masters of the Illuminati, he arranged the timing of the event by arranging the numbers in a manner which would add to powerful numbers. He chose May 1, because May, month #5, added to the first day, equals 6. Weishaupt chose 1776, because the four numbers of this year add up to 21 (1+7+7+6 = 21). Further, the number 6 + 21 = 27, another number of power, because it is formed by the multiplication of 3×9. This date was very carefully chosen by Weishaupt; he believed the greatest Plan is doomed to failure if it is not carried out in the most numerically advantageous time.

4. Nine (9) is sacred because it is the “first cube of an odd number (3)”, (Van Buren, p.40-41)

The triple nine (999) is utilized to represent 666, because it is simply the inversion of 666.

5. Eleven (11) is a sacred number. When eleven is multiplied by the perfect number 3, the number 33 is produced, a number of tremendous occult importance. In 1933, Adolf Hitler and President Franklin Roosevelt came to power. Both these men were committed to the establishment of the New World Order, and their actions impacted humanity greatly. It was also in 1933 that the First Humanist Manifesto was issued. Do you see how Satan manipulated world history to produce three New World Order events in 1933? Thus, a powerful 333 served as a framework for world events in that year.

6. Thirteen (13) is deemed sacred. It was also no accident that Hitler chose the year 1939 to begin World War II, because 39 is formed by the multiplication of 13×3. Thus, you can see how human history has been shaped by the occult belief in the power of numbers. We have provided much detail as to how history has been shaped by this belief in the power of numbers. You can get this information in our Cutting Edge Radio Program dated May 9, 1992, entitled, “33 33 33 = 666 New Age Numerology”.

Masonic Numbers

– Source: Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry


Of the five human senses, the three which are the most important in Masonic symbolism are Seeing, Hearing, and Feeling, because of their respective reference to certain modes of recognition, and because, by their use, Freemasons are enabled to practice that universal language the possession of which is the boast of the Order.


Four is the tetrad or Quaternary of the Pythagoreans! and it is a sacred number in the advanced Degrees. The Pythagoreans called it a perfect number, and hence it has been adopted as a sacred number in the Degree of Perfect Master. In many nations of antiquity the name of God consists of four letters, as the Adad, of the Syrians, the Amum of the Egyptians, the efos of the Greeks, the Deus of the Romans, and pre-eminently the Tetragrammaton or four-lettered name of the Jews. But in Symbolic Freemasonry this number has no special significance.


Among the Pythagoreans five was a mystical number, because it was formed by the union of the first even number and the first odd, rejecting unity; and hence it symbolized the mixed conditions of order and disorder, happiness and misfortune, life and death. The same union of the odd and even, or male and female, numbers made it the symbol of marriage. Among the Greeks it was a symbol of the world, because, says Diodorus, it represented ether and the four elements. It was a sacred round number among the Hebrews.

In Egypt, India. and other Oriental nations says Gesenius, the five minor planets and the five elementary powers were accounted sacred. It was the pentas of the Gnosties and the Hermetic Philosophers; it was the symbol of their quintessence, the fifth or highest essence of power in a natural body. In Freemasonry, five is a sacred number, inferior only in importance to three and seven. It is especially significant in the Fellow Craft’s Degree, where five are required to hold a Lodge, and where, in the winding stairs, the five steps are referred to the orders of architecture and the human senses. In the Third Degree we find the reference to the five points of fellowship and their Symbol, the five-pointed star. Geometry, too, which is deemed synonymous with Freemasonry, is called the fifth science; and, in fact, throughout nearly all the Degrees of Freemasonry, we find abundant allusions to five as a sacred and mystical number.


The five-pointed star, which is not to be confounded with the blazing star, is not found among the old symbols of Freemasonry; indeed, some writers have denied that it is a Masonic emblem at all. It is undoubtedly of recent origin, and was probably introduced by Jeremy Cross, who placed it among the plates in the emblems of the Third Degree prefixed to his Hieroglyphic Chart. It is not mentioned in the ritual or the lecture of the Third Degree, but the Freemasons of the United States have, by tacit consent, referred to it as a symbol of the Five Points of Fellowship. The outlines of the five-pointed star are the same as those of the pentalpha of Pythagoras, which was the symbol of health. M. Jomard, in his Description de L’Egypte (tome viii, page 423) says that the star engraved on the Egyptian monuments, where it is a very common hieroglyphic, has constantly five points. never more nor less.


Among the Pythagoreans the number eight was esteemed as the first cube, being formed by the continued multiplication of 2 by 2 by 2, and signified friendship, prudence, counsel, and justice; and, as the cube or reduplication of the first even number, it was made to refer to the primitive law of nature, which supposes all men to be equal.

Christian numerical symbologists have called it the symbol of the resurrection, because Jesus rose on the 8th day, that is, the day after the 7th, and because the name of Jesus in Greek numerals, corresponding to its Greek letters, is 10, 8, 200, 70, 400, 200, which, being added up, is 888. Hence, too, they call it the Dominical Number. As eight persons were saved in the ark, those who, like Faber, have adopted the theory that the Arkite Rites pervaded all the religions of antiquity, find an important symbolism in this number, and as Noah was the type of the resumetion, they again find in it a reference to that doctrine. It can, however, be scarcely reckoned among the numerical symbols of Freemasonry.


If the number three was celebrated among the ancient sages, that of three times three had no less celebrity; because, according to them, each of the three elements which constitute our bodies is ternary: the water containing earth and fire; the earth containing igneous and aqueous particles; and the fire being tempered by globules of water and terrestrial corpuscles which serve to feed it. No one of the three elements being entirely separated from the others, all material beings composed of these three elements, whereof each is triple, may be designated by the figurative number of three times three, which has become the symbol of all formations of bodies. Hence the name of ninth envelop given to matter. Every material extension, every circular line, has for its representative sign the number nine among the Pythagoreans, who had observed the property which this number possesses of reproducing itself incessantly and entire in every multiplication; thus offering to the mind a very striking emblem of matter, which is incessantly composed before our eyes, after having undergone a thousand decompositions.

The number nine was consecrated to the Spheres and the Muses. It is the sign of every circumference; because a circle or 360 degrees is equal to nine, that is to say, 3+6+0=9. Nevertheless, the ancients regarded this number with a sort of terror; they considered it a bad presage; as the symbol of versatility, of change, and the emblem of the frailty of human affairs. Wherefore they avoided all numbers where nine appears, and chiefly 81, the produce of nine multiplied by itself, and the addition whereof, 8+1, again presents the number nine. As the figure of the number six was the symbol of the terrestrial globe, animated by a Divine Spirit, the figure of the number nine symbolized the earth, under the influence of the Evil Principle; and thence the terror it inspired. Nevertheless, according to the Cabalists, the character nine symbolizes the generative egg, or the image of a little globular being, from whose lower side seems to flow its spirit of life. The Ennead, signifying an aggregate of nine thongs or persons, is the first square of unequal numbers. Every one is aware of the singular properties of the number nine, which, multiplied by itself or any other number whatever, gives a result whose final sum is always nine, or always divisible by nine. Nine multiplied by each of the ordinary numbers, produces an arithmetical progression, each member whereof, composed of two figures, and presents a remarkable fact; for example:

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9 . 10
9 . 18 . 27 . 36 . 45 . 54 . 63 . 72 . 81 . 90

The first line of figures gives the regular series, from 1 to 10. The second reproduces this line doubly; first ascending from the first figure of 18, and then returning from the second figure of 81. In Freemasonry, nine derives its value from its being the product of three multiplied into itself, and consequently in Masonic language the number nine is always denoted by the expression three times three. For a similar reason, 27, which is 3 times 9, and 81, which is 9 times 9, are esteemed ax sacred numbers in the advanced Degrees.


In the Prestonian lectures, eleven was a mystical number, and was the final series of steps in the winding stairs of the Fellow Craft, which were said to consist of 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. The eleven was referred to the eleven apostles after the defection of Judas, and to the eleven sons of Jacob after Joseph went into Egypt. But when the lectures were revived by Henning, the eleven was struck out. In Templar Freemasonry, however, eleven is still significant as being the constitutional number required to open a Commandery; and here it is evidently allusive of the eleven true disciples.


Twelve being composed of the mystical numbers 7+5 or of 3X4, the triad multiplied by the quaternion, was a number of considerable value in ancient systems. Thus there were twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve months in the year, twelve Tribes of Israel, twelve stones in the pectoral, and twelve oxen supporting the molten sea in the Temple. There were twelve apostles in the new law, and the New Jerusalem has twelve gates, twelve foundations, is twelve thousand furlongs square, and the number of the sealed is twelve times twelve thousand. Even the Pagans respected this number, for there were in their mythology twelve superior and twelve inferior gods.


It is only necessary to remind the well-informed Freemason of the fourteen days of burial mentioned in the legend of the Third Degree. Now, this period of fourteen was not in the opinion of Masonic symbolists, an arbitrary selection, but was intended to refer to or symbolize the fourteen days of lunary darkness, or decreasing light, which intervene between the full moon and its continued decrease until the end of the lunar month. In the Egyptian mysteries, the body of Osiris is said to have been cut into fourteen pieces by Typhon, and thrown into the Nile. Plutarch, speaking of this in his treatise on Isis and Osiris, thus explains the symbolism of the number fourteen, which comprises the Masonic idea: The body of Osiris was cut into fourteen pieces; that is, into as many parts as there are days between the full moon. The moon, at the end of fourteen days, enters Taurus, and becomes united to the sun, from whom she collects fire upon her disk during the fourteen days which follow. She is then found every month in conjunction with him in the superior parts of the signs. The equinoctial year finishes at the moment when the sun and moon are found united with Orion, or the star of Orus a constellation placed under Taurus, which unites itself to the Neomenia of spring. The moon renews herself in Taurus. and a few days afterward is seen, in the form of a crescent in the following sign. that is, Gemini, the home of Mercury. Then Orion. united to the sun in the attitude of a formidable warrior, precipitates Scorpio. His rival, into the shades of night, for he sets every time Orion appears above the horizon. The day becomes lengthened, and the germs of evil are by degrees destroyed. It is thus that the poet Nonnus pictures to us Typhon conquered at the end of winter, wizen the sun arrives in Taurus, and when Orion mounts into the heavens with him. The first few lines of this article. Fourteen, prompted a discussion in the Builder of November, 1927 (page 35 ), and in the Sandusky Masonic Bulletin, December 1927 (page 149), relative to fourteen or fifteen days of burial. The former quotes Prichard of 1730 in favor of fifteen; that several Masonic Jurisdictions in the United States prefer fifteen as the number; that Webb and Cross so taught; that England has no definite period but mentions a considerate time; that Doctor Mackey was probably right in assuming an astronomical significance—the lunar period between the full and the new moon—but the fifteenth day is nevertheless the first day of the new moon. Doctor Merz in she Bulletin, however, quotes Fellows in favor of fourteen days, mentions the Great Pyramid and its latitude as providing that fourteen days before the Vernal Equinox, the sun would cease to east a shadow at noon and would not again cast it for fourteen days after the autumnal Equinox, and that the significant conformity of the legends of Osiris and of Hiram deserves favor. The Builder suggests further that altogether too many alterations in the ritual have been made in the interests of schemes of interpretation and of superficial consistency, that the thing to do is to discover the oldest available wording and then try to assign a meaning to it, the first duty being to preserve the tradition, a conclusion in which Doctor Merz and the rest of us will join cordially with Brother Meekren .


A sacred number symbolic of the name of God, because the letters of the holy name YOD HE, Jah, are equal, in the Hebrew mode of numeration by the letters of the alphabet, to fifteen; YOD is equal to ten, and HE is equal to five. Hence, from veneration for this sacred name, the Hebrews do not, in ordinary computations, when they wish to express the number fifteen, make use of these two letters, but of two others, which are equivalent to nine and six.


A number of mystical import, partly because it is the product of 3 and 7, the most sacred of the odd numbers, but especially because it is the sum of the numerical value of the letters of the Divine Name, Eheyeil, thus:

5+ 10+ 5+ 1 = 21.

It is little valued in Freemasonry, but is deemed of great importance in the Cabala and in Alchemy; in the latter, because it refers to the twenty-one days of distillation necessary for the conversion of the grosser metals into silver.


Twenty-Four Inch Gauge


This is considered by the Cabalists as the most sacred of mystical numbers, because it is equal to the numerical value of the letters of the Tetragrammaton, thus: 5+6+5+10=26.


Although the number twenty-seven is found in the Degree of Select Master and in some of the other advanced Degrees, it can scarcely be called in itself a sacred number. It derives its importance from the fact that it is produced by the multiplication of the square of three by three, thus: 3 X 3 X 3 = 27.


In the Pythagorean doctrine of numbers, thirty-six symbolized the male and female powers of nature united, because it is composed of the sum of the four odd numbers, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 16, added to the sum of the four even numbers, 2 + 4 + 6 + 8 = 20, for 16 + 20 = 36. It has, however, no place among the sacred numbers of Freemasonry.


The multiple of two perfect numbers four and ten. This was deemed a sacred number, as commemorating many events of religious signification, some of which are as follows:

The alleged period of probation of our first parents in Eden; the continuous deluge of forty days and nights, and the same number of days in which the maters remained upon the face of the earth; the Lenten season of forty days’ fast observed by Christians with reference to the fast of Jesus in the Wilderness, and by the Hebrews to the earlier desert fast for a similar period; of the forty years spent in the Desert by Moses and Elijah and the Israelites, which succeeded the concealment of Moses the same number of years in the land of Midian. Moses was forty days and nights on the Mount. The days for embalming the dead were forty.

The forty years of the reign of Saul, of David, and of Solomon; the forty days of grace allotted to Nineveh for repentance; the forty days’ fast before Christmas in the Greek Church; as well as its being the number of days of mourning in Assyria, Phenicia, and Egypt, to commemorate the death and burial of their Sun God; and as well the period in the festivals of the resurrection of Adonis and Osiris; the period of forty days thus being a bond by which the whole world, ancient and modern, Pagan, Jewish, and Christian, is united in religious sympathy. Hence, it was determined as the period of mourning by the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of the Northern Jurisdiction, United States of America.

30 passengers and 6 crew members on a scuba-diving Labor Day  9/3/2019 trip.

Divers have recovered the remains of all 34 victims — 21 women and 13 men ranging from 16 to 62 years old. The remains of the last victim were recovered Wednesday, 9/11/2019

Salvage teams are attempting to recover the boat wreckage — a key piece of evidence — north of Santa Cruz Island. The boat, which was 60 feet below the surface, was raised early Thursday afternoon, 9/12/2019.  
The mayday call alerted the U.S. Coast Guard about a fire aboard the Conception, which was anchored off Santa Cruz Island, about 20 yards off-shore.
The fire broke out about 3 a.m. and quickly engulfed the boat, which started sinking in about 64 feet of water as firefighters battled the blaze. At least 25 people have been confirmed dead, and the search continued Monday night, 9/9/2019,  for another nine people still missing, according to Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Kroll.
75-foot commercial dive boat built in Long Beach in 1985, that operated out of Santa Barbara for 39 years. The Conception was owned by Glen Fritzler (59), Truth Aquatics Inc. Conception accommodated 46 people maximum, and had 13 double bunks and 20 single bunks. It had a range of 800 nautical miles.
 in 65 feet of water when the U.S. Coast Guard and Ventura County Fire Department responded to a reported fire around 3:28 a.m. The captain, Jerry Boylan, and four additional male crew escaped; 1 crew and 33 diver-passengers aboard were asleep below decks when the fire occurred. By 8:30 a.m., the hull had sunk 20 yards offshore. A nearby private vessel, Grape Escape, Madera, CA, rescued the five male crew who managed to escape. They were awake at the time and jumped overboard. The cause of death to the 34 victims was most likely smoke inhalation. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said the victims, 21 women and 13 men from 16 to 62 years old, appear to have died from smoke inhalation before they were burned.
On the last night of the voyage, the vessel was anchored in Platts
Harbor off Santa Cruz Island, 21.5 nautical miles south-southwest of Santa Barbara, when it caught
fire. Weather conditions were reported as slight to no winds with patchy fog, 2–3-foot seas, and
air and water temperature about 65°F. The Conception was carrying 39 persons, 6 of which were
crew. Thirty-three passengers and one crew member died.

The Conception anchored at Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, in May 2000

MV Conception was a 75-foot (23 m) liveaboard boat built in Long Beach, California, and launched in 1981.[4][5] It was one of three dive boats owned by Truth Aquatics, which operates charter excursions from Santa Barbara Harbor for groups of divers interested in exploring the Channel Islands, located close to the coast of Southern California by Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.[6] Conception was under charter to Worldwide Diving Adventures (WDA) for a three-day scuba diving excursion over the Labor Day holiday weekend, which was one of WDA’s most popular diving tour packages.[7][8][9] The boat had been refurbished at a cost of more than $1 million following an incident in 2005 when it had been stolen and run aground.[10]

Federal and international regulations require boats over a certain size to be made of fire resistant materials and to include fire sprinklers and smoke detectors wired into the ship’s electronics or linked to the bridge.

Given the vessel’s age and size, Conception, at less than 100 GT and with fewer than 49 berths, was not covered by those regulations. It was constructed of fiberglass, as permitted by regulations last updated in 1978.[11][12] At the time of the fire, Conception was believed to be in compliance with those regulations, and the most recent Coast Guard inspections in February 2019 and August 2018 did not result in any noteworthy violations.[13][14][11]

Conception lower deck bunk room, starboard side facing aft, from a May 2003 dive trip

The boat was laid out with three decks. The upper sun deck contained the wheelhouse. The main deck, just below the sun deck, included a large cabin, which had a galley (in the forward portion of the cabin) where the crew could prepare meals and a salon (in the aft portion) with seating for meals.[14] On the lower deck, up to 46 individuals could sleep in 13 double bunks (12 of which were stacked in twos) and 20 single bunks (18 stacked in threes), with one labeled as reserved for crew.[4][10] The rest of the crew berths were located two decks above, in the aft portion of the sun deck.[14]

According to the deck plans, the main access to the guest accommodations was the forward stairway connected to the galley and main deck cabin.[4] The designer of the vessel stated that there were two exits from the bunk room: a forward staircase at the bow end of the vessel that led up to the galley area, and an aft escape hatch located above one of the bunks, which led to the salon. After exiting the aft escape hatch, a person would still be within the main deck cabin, approximately 3 to 4 feet (0.91 to 1.22 m) forward of the exit to the main deck.[15] Some former dive passengers could only recall the forward stairway exit and could not recall if they had been briefed on the presence of the aft emergency escape hatch.[16]Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown stated both exits appeared to have been blocked by fire during the disaster.[17]

September guide to the bright planets

There are only 2 planets easy to see in September 2019. Jupiter and Saturn can be found in the sky at nightfall and stay out until late night. Mercury and Venus are lost in the glow of sunset. Mars hides in the glare of sunrise.

Click the name of a planet to learn more about its visibility in September 2019: VenusJupiterSaturnMars and Mercury.

Chart: Line of ecliptic. Waxing moon on September 5, 6 and 7. Jupiter, Saturn, Antares in twilight.

Watch for the moon to pair up with very bright Jupiter around September 5 and fainter, golden Saturn around September 7. Read more. By the way, this chart shows the Northern Hemisphere view, but – from the Southern Hemisphere – the moon is near these same planets on these same approximate dates. For your specific view, try Stellarium Online.

Sep 4, 2019 – Sometime around September 24, 2019, will be when the bright planet Venus will begin to be above the horizon about 30 minutes after sunset (a reasonable approximation of when it will begin to be visible). To see Venus as the evening star, you will need a very clear view of the western horizon.

Jupiter – the second-brightest planet after Venus – reigns supreme in the September 2019 night sky. That’s because Venus is sitting close to the glare of sunset all month, leaving dazzling Jupiter to rule the night. Jupiter pops out at dusk – brighter than any star – and stays out until late night. Not sure which one is Jupiter? See the moon in Jupiter’s vicinity for several days, centered on or near September 5. Or just look along the path the sun travels during the day – the ecliptic – for the brightest starlike object you can see. That’ll be Jupiter.

Need more confirmation? Find a bright object you think is Jupiter, steady your binoculars – maybe sit down and anchor them on your knees, or prop your elbows on a fence railing – and aim them at that very bright light. If it is Jupiter, at least one or more of its four largest moons should pop into view.

At mid-northern latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, Jupiter appears in the south to southwest sky at dusk. In early September, Jupiter sets around midnight (1 a.m. daylight saving time). By midnight, we mean the middle of the night, or midway between sunset and sunrise. By the month’s end, Jupiter sets around 9 p.m. (10 p.m. daylight saving time).

At temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, Jupiter is found nearly overhead at dusk/nightfall. The king planet sets about an hour after the midnight hour in early September, and then by early October, sets about one hour before midnight.

Try Stellarium Online for the view from your location.

That bright, fiercely twinkling red star – close to Jupiter on our sky’s dome this year – is Antares, the Heart of the Scorpion in the constellation Scorpius. In 2019, sky watchers have been watching Jupiter “wander” east and west relative to this zodiac star. In the first three months of 2019, Jupiter was traveling eastward, away from Antares. Starting on April 10, 2019, Jupiter reversed course, and began moving toward Antares. For four months (April 10 to August 11, 2019), Jupiter traveled in retrograde (or westward), closing the gap between itself and this star. Jupiter is now moving eastward again, away from Antares.

Moon and Saturn shine in the southern sky at evening dusk on line of ecliptic.

As seen from North America, the moon shines to the west of Saturn on September 7, and then to the east of Saturn on September 8. Read more.

Saturn. After you find Jupiter at dusk and nightfall, use this brilliant beauty of a planet to find another bright evening planet, Saturn. Saturn is not as bright as Jupiter, but the ringed planet shines on par with the sky’s brightest stars. Hold your fist at arm’s length. Saturn is roughly three fist-widths to the east of Jupiter. Because Saturn is the only bright-looking “star” to occupy this part of the sky, you’re not likely to mistake a bright star for Saturn.

Saturn – a golden world to the eye alone – pops out at nightfall and stays out until the wee hours after midnight. This planet still shines as brightly as a 1st-magnitude star, in other words, as brightly as our sky’s brightest stars.

Viewing Saturn’s rings soon? Read me 1st

At mid-northern latitudes, Saturn transits – reaches its highest point for the night – around nightfall. In early September, Saturn sets around one hour after midnight (2 a.m. daylight saving time), and near the month’s end, sets around one hour before midnight (12 a.m. daylight saving time).

At temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, in early September, Saturn transits – climbs highest up for the night – at early evening, and sets about three hours after the midnight hour. By late September, Saturn transits at evening dusk and sets about one hour after midnight.

You won’t mistake Jupiter for Saturn. Jupiter is significantly brighter than Saturn. Jupiter is the fourth-brightest celestial object after the sun, moon and Venus, respectively, and it outshines Saturn by about 10 times. What’s more, at nightfall and early evening in September 2019, Jupiter shines well to the west of Saturn.

Watch for the bright moon to join up with Saturn around September 7 and 8, as shown on the sky chart above.

Nearly vertical line of ecliptic. Thin crescent moon position for each day and planets plus stars.

At the end of September 2019, it’ll be easier to view the planets Mercury and Venus than it was when this month began. The star Spica – brightest light in the constellation Virgo the Maiden – will be nearby. All of these objects will be easier to see from Earth’s Southern Hemisphere, because the ecliptic – or path of the sun, moon and planets – tilts steeply with respect to the sunset horizon in late winter/early spring, and spring begins in the Southern Hemisphere on the September equinox. Read more.

Mercury and Venus are both nominally evening planets all through September 2019, but both sit way too close to the glare of sunset to be visible to the eye at mid-northern latitudes for most of the month. From the Southern Hemisphere, or the northern tropics, you might catch the young moon with both Mercury and Venus near the month’s end, using the eye alone, as depicted on the sky chart above.

Note that Venus – the brightest planet – is much brighter than Mercury.

By the way, at Mercury’s most recent inferior conjunction on July 21, 2019, Mercury swung to the south of the sun’s disk as seen from Earth. But when Mercury reaches its next inferior conjunction on November 11, 2019, the innermost planet will swing directly in front of the sun, to stage a transit of Mercury. Transits of Mercury happen more frequently than transits of Venus; they happen 13 or 14 times per century. The last transit of Mercury happened on May 9, 2016, and – after the one on this upcoming November 11 – the next Mercury transit won’t be until November 13, 2032.

Nearly vertical line of ecliptic, thin crescent moon positions, Mars, Regulus.

You probably won’t see Mars again until late October, 2019. The waning crescent moon will point to Mars on October 23, 24 and 25. On October 26, look for the moon to swing close to Mars on the sky’s dome. Read more.

Where is Mars? Note that the above sky chart is for late October, not September! That’s because late October may feature your first decent chance to catch this world before sunrise. Mars swings on the far side of the sun at superior conjunction on September 2, 2019, to transition from the evening to morning sky. Hiding in the glare of sunrise, Mars probably won’t become visible in the morning sky until late October or November 2019.

What do we mean by bright planet? By bright planet, we mean any solar system planet that is easily visible without an optical aid and that has been watched by our ancestors since time immemorial. In their outward order from the sun, the five bright planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. These planets actually do appear bright in our sky. They are typically as bright as – or brighter than – the brightest stars. Plus, these relatively nearby worlds tend to shine with a steadier light than the distant, twinkling stars. You can spot them, and come to know them as faithful friends, if you try.

Skywatcher, by Predrag Agatonovic.

Bottom line: In September 2019, two planets – Jupiter and Saturn – are easy to see throughout the month. They both come out at nightfall and are out until late night. Mercury and Venus are pretty much lost in the afterglow of sunset, whereas Mars is hiding in the glare of sunrise. Click here for recommended almanacs; they can help you know when the planets rise and set in your sky.

What’s Up! by Belinda C. Dunn

Virgo/Pisces Harvest Full Moon – September 14  @  12:33 am
Autumnal Equinox – September 28  @  6:03 am
Libra New Moon – September 28  @  2:26 pm

September begins on the heels of a Virgo New Moon which took place on August 30. As the Sun and Moon joined in this industrious zodiac sign of work and service, three other planets joined.

As with any New Moon, the seeds have been planted for the next 28 day cycle. With the help of Sun in Virgo, and six other planets in earth signs, these planetary trends support a practical, methodical, consistent, grounded and reliable approach to the tasks ahead. Step by step, one foot in front of the other, the necessity to take care of business is front and center as the month unfolds.

Launching the month in a productive mindset with clear goals and realistic plans feels doable as Sun, Mercury and Mars join to aid the decision making process. Additionally, these planets are in harmony with Uranus giving a boost of excitement and potential in the manifestation process. As Venus adds a substantial dose of enjoyable loving purpose, September is the month to define priorities, overcome apathy, and rise above limitations.

Harvest Moon on September 13-14, with the Sun in Virgo, and the Moon in Pisces, the contrast between physicality and illusion may be stark. The chart for this Full Moon shows Mars in opposition to Neptune. People may be acting out of illusory, perhaps drug induced consciousness. Emotions may be extreme, like a high tide, quick to advance and retreat. The boundaries of everyday consciousness can easily dissolve, crossing the threshold into genuine mystical experience.

As Mars is transiting through Virgo for the entire month, it can be helpful to consider the zodiac polarity of Virgo and Pisces, two opposite ends of the spectrum. 

When Virgo and Pisces are prominent in an individual’s chart, or by current trends, troubled and complicated life situations tend to manifest. The mind can conjure up all manner of self-made distortions and distractions. Yet, behind the veil of physical appearances and human stories, a greater Reality beckons. As my first yoga teacher frequently voiced, “The earth life is the spiritual life.” There is no separation. 

This brings us to another very important planetary trend for September. Since April 29, Saturn has been in retrograde and on September 18, Saturn goes direct. This is very good news in terms of pulling out of stagnation and getting the ball rolling. Situations that have not been advancing, perhaps delayed, and hung up in red tape, are now ready to move forward. It is as though the cosmic wheel of fortune is turning, like the gears of an engine, slowly reversing, aligning and gaining momentum to move in new directions.

Saturn’s forward motion is especially intense as it aligns with the South Lunar Node on September 27, for the third and final time this year. Additionally, Saturn is going direct as 13 degrees Capricorn. Known as a “critical degree,” this potent zodiac point carries more weight in terms of overcoming obstacles to fulfill destiny. 

As Saturn retraces its tracks over the coming months, it is approaching an exact conjunction with Pluto in January 2020. While these planets remain within orb of influence for most of next year, many social systems are in the thick of widespread dysfunction. Very deep veins of corruption that have run deep within society for generations are coming out of the shadows into the light of day.

Like a demolition crew, working together, Saturn and Pluto are dismantling and breaking down what is no longer relevant in our collective experience. In fact, humanity cannot progress without this reckoning, no matter how difficult, arduous and challenging it appears. What has long been denied, can no longer be ignored, hidden and scooted under the rug.

On a lighter note, Jupiter is making its third and final aspect with Neptune on September 21. Facing off, 2019 started with these planets of inspiration and belief at odds with each other. On one hand, people are examining their core beliefs around a variety of issues. On the other hand, large groups of people are coming up empty handed, disenfranchised, caught in the crossfire between ideologies. In last month’s article, I mentioned the birth of a new narrative. Glimmers of truth are everywhere for those with eyes to see, and ears to hear.

The final week of September begins with the Autumnal Equinox on Monday, September 23. This seasonal shift is a sacred passage to be honored and celebrated. As the Sun enters Libra, symbolized by the scales of balance, day and night are equal, and five weeks of daylight savings time remain.

As Mercury is in stressful alignment with Saturn and Pluto, it is advisable to pay attention to conversations and decisions throughout the final week of September. There is a tendency to fall back on blame, projection, pessimism and cynicism. Additionally, Venus is part of this mix, and there is a tendency to shut down, burn bridges, and separate from others.

The current social climate, made possible by technology, leans toward self-absorption. Glorification of the self, clinically known as narcissism, is rampant, and disguised in many forms. Over the next decade, it stands to reason that Chiron in Aries will expose this very painful reality. Just living for self is baseless and potentially destructive. Just living for others can be a slippery slope of resentment and despair. But again, it is about balance.

Mars at solar conjunction

Dominic Ford, Editor
From the Outer Planets feed

The sky at 13:01 CDT on 2 Sep 2019

Mars will pass very close to the Sun in the sky as its orbit carries it around the far side of the solar system from the Earth.

Mars, ancient Roman deity, in importance second only to Jupiter. He was protector of Rome, a nation proud in war.  upon the outbreak of war the consul had to shake the spears saying, “Mars vigila” (“Mars, wake up!”).  Under Augustus the worship of Mars at Rome gained a new impetus; not only was he traditional guardian of the military affairs of the Roman state but, as Mars Ultor (“Mars the Avenger”), he became the personal guardian of the emperor in his role as avenger of Caesar. His worship at times rivaled that of Capitoline Jupiter, and about AD 250 Mars became the most prominent of the di militares (“military gods”) worshiped by the Roman legions. In literature and art.  Source

At closest approach, Mars will appear at a separation of only 1°04′ from the Sun, making it totally unobservable for several weeks while it is lost in the Sun’s glare.

At around the same time, Mars will also be at its most distant from the Earth – receding to a distance of 2.67 AU – since the two planets will lie on opposite sides of the solar system.

If Mars could be observed at this time, it would appear at its smallest and faintest on account of its large distance. It would measure 3.5 arcsec in diameter.

Over following weeks and months, Mars will re-emerge to the west of the Sun, gradually becoming visible for ever-longer periods in the pre-dawn sky. After around a year, it will reach opposition, when it will be visible for virtually the whole night. A chart of the path of Mars across the sky in 2019 can be found here, and a chart of its rising and setting times here.

Saint Feast Days in September

My web searches kept connecting St Valentine with the date September 2, 2019.  I couldn’t figure out why.  But, I am beginning to suspect the Lepercalia and St. Valentine and September 2 are somehow significantly tied in the spiritual.  

The soldiers of Saint Valentine

By S.J. Port
February 10, 2004

Once upon a time, in a land far away in date and time, young men could not marry. In this land and time, Valentine’s Day had yet to emerge, and was centuries from superficial commercialization and international societal attention (not to mention pressure). Not only were young men forbidden to marry their sweethearts, they had no holiday on which to celebrate the love their society would not recognize. It was a sad time for the rights of men, as well as romance.

Single men, according to third century Roman Emperor Claudius II, made for better soldiers than men with wives and children. Thus, the Emperor callously outlawed marriage for young men – his potential crop of soldiers. Legend holds that, lovers, in desperation, turned to a priest named Valentine who, realizing the injustice of the Emperor’s decree, performed secret marriages for young lovers. For these actions, Valentine was sentenced to death. Before his execution on Feb. 14, 269 A.D. the lovelorn priest scribed a letter to his beloved, a young woman he’d fallen in love with while jailed. The letter was signed, “From your Valentine.” With this last testament to love, the legend of Valentine’s work to unite lovers began.

Not as distant as Claudius’ decree are the memories of laws banning interracial marriage. Even more recent than illegal inter-racial marriages are the still practiced social prejudices against inter-faith or inter-ethnic marriages. And today, in our present time and country remains, undeniably, both laws and social construction forbidding the marriage of same-sex couples. St. Valentine worked to maintain the civil rights of young men to love and marry and was martyred by the Catholic Church. Today the Catholic Church, and our federal government, betrays the legend of St. Valentine, and acts as Emperor Claudius II did. They deny people the right to celebrate their love in the sanctity and security of marriage. The Justices of the Massachusetts Supreme Court who voted that our state Constitution cannot deny homosexual couples the right to marry are doing St. Valentine’s work in our modern day.

Other stories suggest that Valentine was put to death for refusing to forsake his Christian faith in Pagan Rome, and for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often tortured for their religious beliefs.

Historians concede that Pope Gelasius, in 496 A.D., martyred Valentine, setting aside his day of death as a commemoration of his work as a Christian, as well as a day to celebrate true love. Gelasius hoped that the day would remind people to emulate the lives of saints. However, the Pope also had ulterior motives: mid-February was traditionally the time of the Lupercian festival, which is a celebration of sensual pleasure and an ode to the pagan god of fertility, Lepercus. In honoring Valentine, Gelasius outlawed the pagan festival, replacing it with a more appropriate moral (and Christian) celebration, switching Lepercus with Valentine. Gelasius’ denouncement of the pagan holiday conflicted with the Edict of Milan (313) under which Emperor Constantine granted universal religious tolerance to the Roman Empire. The Pope’s condemnation, although only relevant to Catholics, was pushed upon all peoples of Rome through the Church’s immense power over the political state. The barring of Lepercian was a condemnation of paganism, and the right to practice one’s religion of choice without persecution within a free state. Pope Gelasius did to pagans as Claudius did to Christians: He denied them the fundamental right (admittedly, an unrecognized one at the time) to religious freedom without persecution.

Luckily, remnants of the pagan festival survived and even sexually repressed Catholics latched onto the romantic aspects of St. Valentine’s religious life. Unfortunately, the meaning of Valentine’s Day has been lost to many in our modern age. It is not merely a shallow, consumerist holiday filled with chocolate, societal pressures, cards and expensive dates. Whichever murky St. Valentine legend you accept, clearly he was a man of the undercurrent, working for freedoms, a civil rights leader as well as a sympathetic romantic hero. The day on which we honor eros and philia, we also honor the right to pursue happiness (whether in terms of religion or personal commitments), love freely and marry openly.

This column is for AJD, who wanted to know why Valentine’s Day was so important to me: It is one day on which to love freely – representative of all the days in which we should love openly. Valentine’s Day honors my right to love you.

Lupercalia was an ancient pagan festival held each year in Rome on February 15. Although Valentine’s Day shares its name with a martyred Christian saint, some historians believe the holiday is actually an offshoot of Lupercalia. Unlike Valentine’s Day, however, Lupercalia was a bloody, violent and sexually-charged celebration awash with animal sacrifice, random matchmaking and coupling in the hopes of warding off evil spirits and infertility.

Hmmm… Lupercalia is related to Werewolves… connection???

Mercury (Deity)

Mercury (Mercurius) was the Roman god of commerce, often serving as a mediator between the gods and mortals, his winged feet giving him the advantage of speed, and so was the patron of circulation (as in moving people around/immigration) in general – of people, goods (as in imports and exports and trade) and messages (as in internet, email, social media). Mercury protected both merchants, especially those dealing in grains, and travelers. Merchants would pray to him for high profits and protection of their trade goods. However, to many, he was also known for being cunning and shrewd as well as a deceiver, often pulling pranks on the unsuspecting. Mercury was the son of the king of the gods Jupiter and purportedly Maia, goddess of the plains. Considered by some to be of foreign origin, he is often associated with his Greek counterpart Hermes. His Roman name Mercurius is probably derived from the Latin word for merchandise (merx). 

Like Hermes, he escorted the dead to the underworld.  The god is frequently depicted holding the caduceus, a wand used to reconcile conflicts, and winged sandals for quickly carrying messages for the gods. The wand had been given to him by Apollo in Greek mythology. Besides the wand and sandals, he also wore a broad-brimmed hat, the Perasus, and carried a purse, a symbol of his duties as the god of commerce and profits. 

Besides the god of commerce, Mercury was also the patron of shepherds, cheats and thieves. Ovid relays a story of Mercury who was a master thief himself.

The Moon at perihelion

This event is not visually apparent from Corsicana.

Dominic Ford, Editor
From the Moon feedCorsicana

The sky at 14:44 CDT on 1 Sep 2019

The Moon‘s monthly orbit around the Earth will carry it to its closest point to the Sun – its perihelion – at a distance of 1.0072 AU from the Sun.

This happens at around the time when the Moon’s orbit carries it between the Sun and the Earth, at around the same time that it passes new moon.

At the moment of the Moon’s perihelion, the Earth will lie at a distance of 1.0094 AU from the Sun, and the Moon will lie at a distance of 1.0070 AU from the Sun.

This distance between the Earth and Moon will be 0.0024 AU (359,000 km).

The exact positions of the Sun and Moon in the sky will be:

Mars at solar conjunction

Dominic Ford, Editor
From the Outer Planets feed

The sky at 13:01 CDT on 2 Sep 2019

Mars will pass very close to the Sun in the sky as its orbit carries it around the far side of the solar system from the Earth.

At closest approach, Mars will appear at a separation of only 1°04′ from the Sun, making it totally unobservable for several weeks while it is lost in the Sun’s glare.

At around the same time, Mars will also be at its most distant from the Earth – receding to a distance of 2.67 AU – since the two planets will lie on opposite sides of the solar system.

If Mars could be observed at this time, it would appear at its smallest and faintest on account of its large distance. It would measure 3.5 arcsec in diameter.

Over following weeks and months, Mars will re-emerge to the west of the Sun, gradually becoming visible for ever-longer periods in the pre-dawn sky. After around a year, it will reach opposition, when it will be visible for virtually the whole night. A chart of the path of Mars across the sky in 2019 can be found here, and a chart of its rising and setting times here.

The position of Mars at the moment it passes solar conjunction will be:

Object Right Ascension Declination Constellation Angular Size
Mars 10h45m30s +09°02′ Leo 3.5″
Sun 10h44m +08°01′ Leo 31’41”



Mercury at superior solar conjunction

From the Inner Planets feed


The sky at 13:25 CDT on 4 Sep 2019

Mercury will pass very close to the Sun in the sky as its orbit carries it around the far side of the solar system from the Earth.

This occurs once in every synodic cycle of the planet (116 days), and marks the end of Mercury’s apparition in the morning sky and its transition to become an evening object over the next few weeks.

At closest approach, Mercury will appear at a separation of only 1°42′ from the Sun, making it totally unobservable for several weeks while it is lost in the Sun’s glare.

Mercury will also pass apogee – the time when it is most distant from the Earth – at around the same time, since it will lie exactly opposite to the Earth in the Solar System. It will move to a distance of 1.37 AU from the Earth, making it appear small and very distant. If it could be observed, it would measure 4.9 arcsec in diameter, whilst appearing completely illuminated.

The exact position of Mercury at the moment it passes solar conjunction will be:

Object Right Ascension Declination Constellation Angular Size
Mercury 10h52m20s +09°01′ Leo 4.9″
Sun 10h49m +07°26′ Leo 31’42”

2 Peter 3 King James Version (KJV)

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.  And account that the long-suffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.  Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.



Vulcan, in Roman religion, god of fire, particularly in its destructive aspects as volcanoes or conflagrations. Poetically, he is given all the attributes of the Greek Hephaestus. His worship was very ancient (meaning from the beginning), and at Rome he had his own priest (flamen) (from whence we get the word flame). His chief festival, the Volcanalia, was held on  August 23 and was marked by a rite of unknown significance: the heads of Roman families threw small fish into the fire. Vulcan was invoked to avert fires, as his epithets Quietus and Mulciber (Fire Allayer) suggest. Because he was a deity of destructive fire, his temples were properly located outside the city. In Roman myth Vulcan was the father of Caeculus, founder of Praeneste (now Palestrina, Italy). His story is told by Servius, the 4th-century-AD commentator on Virgil. Vulcan was also father of the monster Cacus, who was killed by Hercules for stealing his cattle, as Virgil relates in Book VIII of the Aeneid.

Profanatica + Demonomancy “Unholy Revenge Live in Athens › events › temple-athens › profanatica-demono…
Art event in Athens, Greece by Bowel of Noise records
(Official) and Temple Athens on Sunday, November 24 2019
Sun, Nov 24
Temple Athens, Athens, Greece, GR


Bowel of Noise proudly presents:
PROFANATICA (us) + DEMONOMANCY (it) “Unholy Revenge – Live in Athens” Sunday – 24th Nov. 2019!
Profanatica will have a new album out in October 2019 and will be touring to promote it with backing from their new label Season of Mist.
As support they are bringing with the great Demonomancy from Italy signed to Invictus Productions.
Together this package will arrive in Athens , Sunday – 24th Nov. 2019, so don’t miss out on the obscenities of the Unholy Revenge! (there is that reference again.  This is a season of the revenge of the Fallen)
As one of earliest American black metal bands, during the dark ‘n’ bloody days of the early 1990s, PROFANATICA set out upon a course of utter blasphemy and barbaric primitivism, then retreated into the shadows as a cult icon, only to be resurrected years later once the black metal scene had finally caught up with their invention/degradation. When they returned, with Profanatitas de Domonatia in 2007, the signature PROFANATICA sound was firmly in place, and yet masters Paul Ledney and John Gelso continued to challenge themselves and push this pulsing primitivism to uncharted waters of sin ‘n’ sickness. Three years later, Disgusting Blasphemies Against God pushed the envelope even further, and yet three more years again, 2013’s Thy Kingdom Cum climaxed all over that envelope. Now, with The Curling Flame of Blasphemy, PROFANATICA have gone back to the beginning while re-imagining their signature sound in the subtlest and yet somehow-most-powerful way.Arguably the band’s crudest and most primitive full-length thus far, The Curling Flame of Blasphemy bulldozes into being with a crushing, blown-out explosion of sound, setting out PROFANATICA’s stall and drawing a very firm line in the sand: you either submit to its gloriously hypnotic blasphemy or get trampled under cloven, obsidian hoof. Paul Ledney’s idiosyncratic approach to rudimentary/elevated-mind drumming forms the backbone by which John Gelso sends out wave upon wave (remember electricity, time and sound are all made of waves and all these waves affect our bodies which are made of water/crystals and are natural receivers) of tense, vertigo-inducing riff, layering the bulldoze with chilling counterpoint that sends the vertigo into overdrive and creates a perverse disconnect from the sonic wreckage going on all around them. All the while, Ledney’s charred-black vomits cut through the crush to spill forth verbal desecration, profaning the pure and defiling dog’s creation as only he can.  Thus, The Curling Flame of Blasphemy never dies, never relents – from a flicker into an inferno – and both its heat and light shall serve as a guide for future generations of devotees/descecrators.
For a decade now, Demonomancy have been steadfast pillars of the bestial metal idiom, perfecting it over the course of two EPs and 2013’s definitive debut album, Throne of Demonic Proselytism. However, whilst working with the same strident fundament – ancient South American black/death, …sulfurous metal magick.

WOW… that was a real surprise.  If you think that is just a harmless rock concert…. YOU BETTER THINK AGAIN.  Don’t you know that SATAN runs the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY?   Don’t you understand that entertainment is just a tool the enemy uses to gain control of YOUR MIND??

Meanwhile back to the God of Fire… There are fires everywhere.  I was looking at some articles on fires in California at the same time as the boat fire.  I found this one and pulled some excerpts I found very interesting.  Understand, every article they put in the NEWS is there for a reason.  They are worded very carefully.  EVERY NEWS OUTLET is told EXACTLY what to say or PRINT.  Check this out. 

Wildfire near Cool in El Dorado County forces evacuations; two firefighters injured

Sep 3, 2019 – wildfire in rural (El Dorado County (It is all about the GOLD, just like the fires in the Amazon and the Dam at Ororville) forced evacuation of residents in the hills … El Dorado County near Cool spurred evacuations Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019. … been a quiet summer by recent California wildfire season standards.

The fired, dubbed the Country Fire, had burned 85 acres and was 25 percent contained as of 7:30 p.m., Cal Fire reported. Four structures were reported burned, three out-buildings and one modular structure.

“Firefighters are making great progress on the fire and forward progress has stopped,” Cal Fire said in an evening update. “Significant resources remain on scene to ensure further containment. (Ya, and not just “Fire” containment.  They are there to contain the masses.)

The fire broke out around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday amid 90-plus degree temperatures in grass and oak (sacred tree of Jupiter) woodlands that are dotted with rural homesteads (they want to flush out all the people living in seclusion in rural areas), officials said. Fire officials say the cause is under investigation.

“We have structures threatened and evacuations are in place,” Cal Fire spokesperson Diana Swart said in an announcement soon after the fire’s ignition. “There are lots of people living in those nooks and crannies.

The evacuation on the winding hill roads was orderly, Sgt. Anthony Prencipe of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday afternoon. “It sounds like people are following directions. There are no reported issues.”

Some roads in the Cool area were, however, jammed with cars mid-afternoon.

Fire officials reported that 285 firefighters were on scene and had made good progress in the first two hours as the fire behavior “started to moderate.”

Two local Garden Valley firefighters suffered minor injuries when they and their truck were overrun by fire, Pastor Drew Buell of Cool Community Church said. Cal Fire officials said both were transported to hospitals for treatment.

About 30 people were staying at the church early Tuesday evening, which was serving as the evacuation center.

Among those was Carrie Carlson, who had been at work away from home when the fire hit. Her 16-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter, however, were at home in the hills. Carlson called her daughter, who said “it was raining ash in the backyard.”

When they were alerted by sheriff’s deputies that they had to evacuate, the two children went to a neighbor’s house with their dog Denali, cat Samson and their bearded dragon lizard Norbert. The neighbor ferried them to safety, Carlson said.    (Now, why do you suppose they put that little anecdote about this family in the NEWS?  because these names (Denali and Samson) are very SIGNIFICANT and have SPIRITUAL intent.  I don’t know about Norbert… but it is certainly significant to mention the BEARDED DRAGON LIZARD in relation to ENDTIME Wrath).   Source

Among the many gods of the Romans, Jupiter, the son of Saturn, was the supreme god, associated with thunder, lightning, and storms. (BAAL) He was a god of light, a protector during defeat, and the giver of victory. He was Jupiter Imperator, the supreme general; Jupiter Invictus, the unconquered; and lastly, Jupiter Triumphator. He protected Rome in time of war and maintained the welfare of the people during peace. He was most often portrayed with a long, white beard, and his symbol was the eagle atop a scepter which he carried as he sat upon his majestic throne. As with Zeus, his reputation for violence often caused men to tremble in fear for he could easily punish them with one of his thunderbolts.  Source

Jupiter was a sky god. One of his most ancient epithets is Lucetius (Lucifer)  (“Light-Bringer”); and later literature has preserved the same idea in such phrases as sub Iove, “under the open sky.” As Jupiter Elicius he was propitiated with a peculiar ritual to send rain in time of drought; as Jupiter Fulgur he had an altar in the Campus Martius, and all places struck by lightning were made his property and were guarded from the profane by a circular wall.Throughout Italy he was worshiped on the summits of hills (the High Places); thus, on the Alban Hill south of Rome was an ancient seat of his worship as Jupiter Latiaris, which was the centre of the league of 30 Latin cities of which Rome was originally an ordinary member. At Rome itself on the Capitoline Hill was his oldest temple; here there was a tradition of his sacred tree, the oak, common to the worship both of Zeus and of Jupiter, and here, too, were kept the lapides silices, pebbles or flint stones (for divination, cast lots, rolling dice), which were used in symbolic ceremonies by the fetiales (Fetial, any of a body of 20 Roman priestly officials who were concerned with various aspects of international relations, such as treaties and declarations of war).,  the Roman priests who officially declared war or made treaties on behalf of the Roman state.Jupiter was not only the great protecting deity of the race but also one whose worship embodied a distinct moral conception. He is especially concerned with oaths, treaties, and leagues, (this is the reason for all alliances since WWII.  EU, NAFTA, UN, etc) and it was in the presence of his priest that the most ancient and sacred form of marriage (confarreatio) took place. The lesser deities Dius Fidius and Fides were, perhaps, originally identical and certainly were connected with him. This connection with the conscience (yes, he is the great Usurper, he wants to replace the Creator and establish his own form of law and morality, totally against the TRUTH of GOD and HIS Commandments.) with the sense of obligation and right dealing (evil good and good evil), was never quite lost throughout Roman history. In Virgil’s Aeneid, though Jupiter is in many ways as much Greek as Roman, he is still the great protecting deity who keeps the hero in the path of duty (pietas) toward gods, state, and family.   Source
After Jupiter was raised by his mother, his destiny was to take over his own father, Saturn, as revenge for all he had done to his brothers and sisters in the past. When Jupiter grew up, he made Saturn vomit up all of the children he had swallowed.[3] All the brothers and sisters joined forces and overthrew Saturn.[1][2][3]  Wikipedia

Monday, September 2 before 11 p.m. EDT – Great Red Spot on Jupiter

(Image credit: Starry Night)

Due to Jupiter’s rapid 10-hour rotation period, its Great Red Spot (or GRS) is only observable from Earth during a predictable three-hour window every 2nd or 3rd night. The GRS will be easiest to see using a medium-sized, or larger, aperture telescope on an evening of good seeing (steady air). For observers in the Americas, the Great Red Spot will be crossing the planet on Monday evening, September 2 from dusk to 11 p.m. EDT.

Wednesday, September 4 from 9:21 to 11:33 p.m. EDT – Io’s Black Shadow and GRS on Jupiter

(Image credit: Starry Night)

From time to time, the little round, black shadows cast by Jupiter’s four Galilean moons become visible in backyard telescopes as they cross (or transit) the planet’s disk. On Wednesday, September 4 from 9:21 to 11:33 p.m. EDT, observers in the Americas can watch Io’s shadow transit Jupiter, accompanied by the Great Red Spot.

Thursday, September 5 at 11:10 p.m. EDT – First Quarter Moon

(Image credit: Starry Night)

After the moon has completed the first quarter of its orbit around Earth, the relative positions of the Earth, sun, and moon cause us to see it half-illuminated – on its eastern side. At first quarter, the moon always rises around noon and sets around midnight local time, so it is also visible in the afternoon daytime sky. The evenings around first quarter are the best times to see the lunar terrain dramatically lit by low-angled sunlight.

Thursday, September 5 evening – First Quarter Moon near Jupiter

(Image credit: Starry Night)

In the southern sky on the evening of Thursday, September 5, the first quarter moon will be positioned less than four finger widths to the upper right (or 4 degrees to the celestial northwest) of the bright planet Jupiter. The moon and Jupiter will both fit within the field of view of binoculars (red circle). If you watch the pair over several hours, starting at dusk, you will see the moon’s orbit carry it closer to the planet.

Friday, September 6 evening – Neptune Kisses Phi Aquarii


Neptune was the name that ancient Romans gave to the Greek god of the sea and earthquakes, Poseidon. He was the brother of Jupiter (Zeus) and of Pluto (Hades). After the defeat of their father Saturn (Cronos), the three brothers divided the world in three parts to be ruled by one of the three brothers. Jupiter took the sky, Neptune the sea and Pluto the underworld. Neptune had the reputation for having a violent temper. Tempests (as in Hurricanes, Typhoons and Tsunamis) and earthquakes were a reflection of his furious rage. He was depicted as a bearded men holding a tridentand seated in a seashell drawn by sea-horses. 

This is the GOD DAGON, and you see HIS TRIDENT EVERYWHERE!  These are the Mer-people.  Atalantis the Lady in the Lake,  Mammiwata!  This is the reason for the rise in MERMAID culture.

In the southeastern sky on the evenings around Friday, September 6, the orbital motion  of the dim, blue planet Neptune (red line with dates and times labeled) will carry it very close to a reddish, naked-eye star named Phi (φ) Aquarii. On both Thursday and Friday, the planet will appear within one arc-minute of the star, placing them close together in the field of view of a telescope at high power (red circle). A large telescope might also reveal Neptune’s large moon Triton.


Sunday, September 8 evening – Bright Moon near Saturn

Saturn, Latin

Saturn, Latin Saturnus, in Roman religion, the god of sowing or seed (the very thing they want to corrupt – all seed). The Romans equated him with the Greek agricultural deity Cronus (Cronus is the God of Time – the very thing they want to control). The remains of Saturn’s temple at Rome, eight columns of the pronaos (porch), still dominate the west end of the Forum at the foot of the Clivus Capitolinus. The temple goes back to the earliest records of the republic (6th century BCE). It was restored by Lucius (named for Lucifer) Munatius Plancus in 42 BCE and, after a fire, in the 4th century CE. It served as the treasury (aerarium Saturni) of the Roman state (the center of wealth/money/commerce). Saturn’s cult partner was the obscure goddess Lua, whose name is connected with lues (plague or destruction), but he was also associated with Ops (as in operation, PsyOps, Special Ops, Government Ops, Operating System?), another obscure goddess (perhaps the goddess of abundance), the cult partner of Consus, probably a god of grain storage. 

Saturn’s great festival, the Saturnalia, became the most popular of Roman festivals, and its influence is still felt in the celebration of Christmas and the Western world’s New Year. The Saturnalia was originally celebrated on December 17, but it was later extended to seven days. It was the merriest festival of the year: all work and business were suspended; slaves were given temporary freedom to say and do what they liked; certain moral restrictions were eased; and presents were freely exchanged.The weekday Saturday (Latin Saturni dies) was named for Saturn.

In the southern sky after dusk on Sunday evening, September 8, the planet Saturn will be positioned a palm’s width to the right (or 6 degrees to the celestial west) of the bright, waxing gibbous moon. The pair will cross the sky together for most of the night. If you check on them over several hours, starting at dusk, you will see the moon’s orbit carry it farther from the planet and the rotation of the sky lift the moon higher than Saturn. Hours earlier, observers in eastern Africa, Madagascar, southern Indonesia, western and northern Australia, western Micronesia, and western Melanesia can see the moon occult Saturn.

Monday, September 9 from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. EDT – Great Red Spot on Jupiter

Due to Jupiter’s rapid 10-hour rotation period, its Great Red Spot (or GRS) is only observable from Earth during a predictable three-hour window every 2nd or 3rd night. The GRS will be easiest to see using a medium-sized, or larger, aperture telescope on an evening of good seeing (steady air). For observers in the Americas, the Great Red Spot will be crossing the planet on Monday evening, September 9 from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. EDT.

Tuesday, September 10 overnight – Neptune at Opposition near Phi Aquarii

On Tuesday, September 10, Neptune will be directly opposite the sun in the sky. At opposition, Neptune will be closest to Earth for the year, slightly brighter and larger in telescopes, and visible all night long. The dim, magnitude 7.8, blue planet will be located among the stars of eastern Aquarius, just 7.5 arc-minutes (approximately one-quarter of the moon’s apparent diameter) to the right (or celestial west) of the naked-eye star Phi (φ) Aquarii. Both Neptune and that star will appear together in the field of view of a backyard telescope at medium power.

Thursday, September 12 after sunset – Venus Kisses Mercury

After sunset on the evenings around Thursday, September 12, the inner planets Mercury and Venus will appear very close together. After the sun has completely disappeared, look just above the western horizon for bright Venus sitting about half a finger’s width (20 arc-minutes, or two-thirds of the full moon’s diameter) above dimmer Mercury. Due to Mercury’s faster orbital motion, Mercury will be to Venus’ lower right on Thursday and to Venus’ lower left on Friday. The two planets will appear together in binoculars and backyard telescopes at low power (red circle). Observers at low latitudes will see the planets more easily, in a darker sky.

Friday, Setptember 13 – Full Harvest Moon

The next time will be August, 2049, according to the Old Farmers Almanac. And folks in the Eastern time Zone won’t have a Full Moon on the 13th. Their full moon is not until after midnight – Saturday morning of the 14th. Lucky or unlucky, the full moon is always a great thing to see rising over the Sapphire Mountains on the eastern edge of the Bitterroot Valley.

It’s Friday the 13th.

And for those who are superstitious, it’s a double whammy of natural forces because it also will host a full moon — a harvest moon, in fact, because it is the first full moon nearest to the time of the autumnal equinox.

It’s also the first full moon to land on a Friday the 13th since the year 2000. And, according to the Farmer’s Almanac, the next one isn’t expected to happen again for another 30 years, on Aug. 13, 2049.

But what does it mean?

Why people are superstitious about Friday the 13th isn’t entirely clear. It’s believed to be a combination of a fear of the number 13 — called triskaidekaphobia — and Friday being considered an unlucky day. At least one Friday the 13th occurs each calendar year but can occur as many as three times. A Friday the 13th occurs on any month that begins on a Sunday.

The fear of Friday the 13th, according to the History Channel, is rooted in biblical traditions. There were 13 guests at the Last Supper and Jesus was crucified on Good Friday. But fears in pop culture about Friday the 13th didn’t occur until 1907 when the novel “Friday, the Thirteenth,” written by Thomas William Lawson, was published.

And, of course, there is the horror movie “Friday the 13th” franchise, which debuted in 1980.

A number of traumatic events have occurred on Friday the 13th, including the German bombing of Buckingham Palace (September 1940); the murder of Kitty Genovese in Queens, New York (March 1964); a cyclone that killed more than 300,000 people in Bangladesh (November 1970); the disappearance of a Chilean Air Force plane in the Andes (October 1972); the death of rapper Tupac Shakur (September 1996) and the crash of the Costa Concordia cruise ship off the coast of Italy, which killed 30 people (January 2012), according to the History Channel.

As for the full moon, it’s been believed that this lunar phase can affect everything from people’s state of mind, to fertility, to crime rates. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, people who believe that moon phases affect human behavior point out that the human body is about 60% water. If the phase of the moon can affect ocean tides, and even cause a bulge in the Earth’s crust, surely it would exert an effect of human beings, it reasons.

Saturday, September 14 at 12:33 a.m. EDT – Full Harvest Moon

(Image credit: Starry Night)

The September full moon, traditionally known as the “Corn Moon” and “Barley Moon”, always shines in or near the stars of Aquarius and Pisces. Full moons always rise around sunset and set around sunrise. Because this is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox in 2019, it is also the Harvest Moon. On the evenings around its full phase, the moon usually rises about 50 minutes later each night. But the shallowly sloping evening ecliptic around the equinox causes Harvest Moons to rise at almost the same time each night – only delayed by as little as 10 minutes, depending on your latitude. This phenomenon traditionally allowed farmers to work into the evening under bright moonlight — hence the name.

Tuesday, September 17 overnight – Bright Waning Moon meets Uranus


(Image credit: Starry Night)

In the eastern late-evening sky on Tuesday, September 17, the waning gibbous moon will be positioned about a palm’s width below (or 5.5 degrees to the celestial southeast of) the blue-green planet Uranus. While the bright moon will overwhelm much dimmer Uranus, you can take note of where the planet is compared to the surrounding stars, and try looking for it after the moon moves away on subsequent evenings.

Wednesday, September 18 from 8:41 to 11:10 p.m. EDT – Europa’s Black Shadow crosses Jupiter

(Image credit: Starry Night)

From time to time, the little round, black shadows cast by Jupiter’s four Galilean moons become visible in backyard telescopes as they cross (or transit) the planet’s disk. On Wednesday, September 18 from 8:41 to 11:10 p.m. EDT, observers in the Americas can watch Europa’s shadow transit the northern hemisphere of Jupiter. In the eastern portion of the continent the planet will set shortly before the transit is complete, but observers farther west will see the entire event.

Wednesday, September 18 evening — Saturn Stands Still

On Wednesday, September 18, Earth’s faster orbit will cause Saturn to end a westward retrograde loop with respect to the distant stars (red path with labelled dates) and resume its regular eastward motion. Look for the yellowish, magnitude 0.4 planet in the lower part of the southern sky, among the stars of northeastern Sagittarius.

Thursday, September 19 after midnight — Moon Tackles Taurus

When the waning gibbous moon rises in the east at about 10:30 p.m. local time on Thursday, September 19, it will be positioned several finger widths to the upper right of the large triangular grouping of stars that form the face of Taurus the bull. During the night, the moon’s orbital motion (green line) will carry it towards the bright, orange-tinted star Aldebaran, which marks the bull’s eastern eye.

Saturday, September 21 at 10:41 p.m. EDT — Last Quarter Moon

(Image credit: Starry Night)

At its last quarter phase, the moon rises around midnight and remains visible in the southern sky all morning. At this phase, the moon is illuminated on its western side, towards the pre-dawn sun. Last quarter moons are positioned ahead of the Earth in our trip around the sun. About 3½ hours later, Earth will occupy that same location in space. After this phase, the waning moon will traverse the last quarter of its orbit around the earth, on the way to new moon.

Sunday, September 22 pre-dawn — Moon passes Messier 35

In the eastern pre-dawn sky of Sunday, September 22, the waning last quarter moon will pass two finger widths to the lower right (or 2 degrees to the celestial south) of the bright, open star cluster known as Messier 35. That cluster sits near the toes of Castor, Gemini’s more westerly twin.

Monday, September 23 at 3:50 a.m. EDT – Equinox

On Monday, September 23 at 3:50 a.m. EDT, the sun will cross the celestial equator moving southward, marking the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of autumn. On the equinoxes in March and September, day and night are of equal length and the sun rises due east and sets due west.

Tuesday-Wednesday, September 24 and 25 pre-dawn — Crescent Moon Passes the Beehive(I have no idea what this indicates… but the elite are all about the “HIVE MIND”)

In the eastern pre-dawn sky on the mornings of Tuesday, September 24 and Wednesday, September 25, the waning crescent moon will hop over the large, bright, open star cluster known as the Beehive, Praesepe, and Messier 44. On Tuesday, the moon will be positioned about a palm’s width to the upper right (celestial west) of the cluster. The following morning, the moon’s orbital motion will place it about the same distance to the lower left (celestial east) of the Beehive. Observers in Asia will see the moon pass through the cluster (green line).

Wednesday, September 25 after midnight — Vesta Reverses Direction

On Wednesday, September 25, the Earth’s orbital motion will cause the large asteroid designated (4) Vesta to commence a westerly retrograde loop among the distant stars of Taurus. After dark, use binoculars or a backyard telescope to look for the magnitude 7.3 object sitting about a fist’s diameter (9 degrees) to the right (or celestial west) of the naked-eye star Gamma Tauri, which marks the bull’s chin.

Friday, September 27 pre-dawn — Morning Zodiacal Light for Mid-Northern Observers

Morning Zodiacal Light for Mid-Northern Observers night sky september 2019

For about half an hour before dawn during moonless periods in September and October annually, the steep morning ecliptic favors the appearance of the zodiacal light in the eastern sky. This is reflected sunlight from interplanetary particles concentrated in the plane of the solar system. During a two-week period that starts just before the September new moon, look above the eastern horizon, near the stars of Leo, for a broad wedge of faint light rising from the horizon and centered on the ecliptic (marked by green line). Don’t confuse it with the Milky Way, which is sitting further to the southeast.

Saturday, September 28 at 2:26 p.m. EDT — New Moon and Large Tides

At its new phase, the moon is travelling between Earth and the sun. Since sunlight can only reach the far side of the moon, and the moon is in the same region of the sky as the sun, the moon becomes completely hidden from view. Because the moon’s closest approach to Earth (perigee) will occur only 16.5 hours before this new moon, the combined gravitational tugs of the sun and moon pulling from the same direction in space will generate large tides on Earth for several days.

Saturday, September 28 after sunset — Mercury meets Spica near Venus

After dusk on the evenings around Saturday, September 28, observers at low latitudes can see the planet Mercury pass a generous finger’s width to the upper right of the bright, naked-eye star Spica in Virgo. At visual magnitude -0.24, Mercury will appear approximately three times brighter than magnitude 0.95 Spica. Both the star and the planet will fit together in the field of a backyard telescope at medium power (red circle), but wait until the sun has completely disappeared from view before aiming your telescope or binoculars at them. To assist in your search, much brighter Venus will be positioned a palm’s width to the right (or celestial west) of Mercury and Spica.

Sunday, September 29 after sunset — Crescent Moon near Mercury and Venus

Immediately after sunset on Sunday, September 29, the very young crescent moon will form a triangle with Mercury and Venus. Dim Mercury will be positioned low over the horizon and almost a palm’s width (or 5 degrees) to the lower left of the moon. Much brighter Venus will be a similar distance to the moon’s lower right. After the sun has completely disappeared, use binoculars (red circle) to find the moon, and then sweep lower for the two planets. Observers at low latitudes will see the trio more easily, in a darker sky.



MERCURY IN RETROGRADE COMING SOON – October 31 to November 20.

Mercury Retrograde? No Problem!   –   Final Retro Grade period  2019 – October 31 to November 20.

Mercury Retrograde? No Problem!

When the symbol of Mercury runs backwards, many people run for cover!

Striking fear in the hearts of many, Mercury Retrograde heralds a time of email glitches, power outages, miscommunication, lost paperwork, snags with fine print and so on. More about that, and what Mercury Retrograde means, in bit.

Now, the truth is, I thrive during Mercury Retrograde periods.

The term “retrograde” means “backwards”. Obviously, no planet actually goes backwards. However, from our perspective here on Earth, all of the planetary bodies (except for the Sun and Moon) appear to move backwards. Imagine that you’re driving down the road parallel to a set of railroad tracks. A train is speeding along to your left, and you pass the train. It appears to be going backwards, but what is really happening is that you are going faster.

Mercury SmallMercury is a mental planet and governs all forms of communication–including writing and speaking–as well as methods of communication such as computers, phones, faxes, and the mail system. Yes, it’s true that messages often get lost during this time and misinterpretation abounds. In fact, it’s a good idea to check all the fine print in legal documents during this time, as well as back up computer files.

Mercury is the Roman equivalent of the Greek god Hermes. Both were considered trickster gods, so couple this mischievous nature with messages and communication and you can guess what may happen! Some examples would be leaving a message on an answering machine, only to have the recipient’s child accidentally erase it. Or, addressing a letter to your beloved aunt who lives on the other side of the country…but accidentally writing your own zip code instead of hers!

Despite the fear that often surrounds Mercury Retrograde periods, it’s possible for us to work with the energy by taking the time to tie up loose ends. Consider Merc Retro as an opportunity for course correction—or for “do overs” for rectifying mistakes, sloppiness, mediocrity, offenses or poor decisions from earlier in the year.

To get the most out of Mercury retrogrades, concentrate on activities beginning with the prefix “re-“. Here are some examples:
