July 2013


On the 29/30 July 2013, on the last quarter waning moon, our planets will align in a 6 pointed star formation within our skies commonly referred to as a Star of David formation.  The synergy of this alignment will activate the Star of David forming an energetic counter-rotating Merkabah

On the 25/26 August 2013, a second Star of David and energetic counter-rotating Merkabah will be formed by the planetary alignments.

These formations are helping us to transcend the divide between the personality and the Soul as they create a bridge to Spirit through our Hearts… ultimately helping us to anchor a Heaven here on Earth.

These Merkabah portal gateways are providing opportunities for humanity to move beyond fear, pain struggle… and expand our consciousness beyond the limitations imposed by cultural, familial and societal belief systems.

We have the opportunity at this time to consciously bathe every cell of our physical bodies in the liquid light sacred codes that are channelled by these planetary formations  in order to attune (quantum leap) our DNA into a higher levels of resonance.

The effect of these formations will be to awaken our ‘Body of Light’ to higher potentials of awareness… such that we can think, be and live our lives beyond the dogma and fear seen on Earth today.  From this place of awakened consciousness we can solve the problems on Earth today and embrace a compassionate and more joy global community of humans reverent of all life on Earth as the ancestors of future generations.



Celestial Star of David

The commonly called Star of David is not limited to the Jewish faith and the Kabbalah, as it also appears in the Buddhist, Theosophical, and various other Eastern and Western traditions. It is fair to say that it is a symbol of integration (linking heaven and earth, as above, so below) and spirituality. – Mary Fortier Shea

The astrologer Mary Fortier Shea has been studying the celestial Stars of David since 1990, and is regarded as one of the world’s expert on the topic. In order to more fully understand the Star of David celestial configuration, I highly recommend you go to her page: http://www.maryshea.com/star.html 

Blue Star Mary accurately predicted which of the Stars of David were ‘war stars’, i.e. the ones that preceded the start of a war, sometimes by just days. Good news: Mary states that the July 29, 2013 Star of David is NOT a war star.

Mary defines a Star of David as: “a geometric configuration that has 6 equidistant points within a 360 degree radius or two interlocking triangles, one facing up and the other facing down.”

The upward pointing triangle is an esoteric symbol for masculine (yang) energies. It is associated with God/The Divine Masculine and often referred to as Heaven. The downward pointing triangle is a symbol for feminine (yin) energies. It is associated with Goddess/The Divine Feminine and often referred to as Earth.

When these two grand triangles combine, Heaven meets Earth. The masculine triangle is concerned with our relationship with Spirit; it represents the 3 upper chakras which connect us with the higher dimensions: the throat, third eye, and crown chakras. The feminine triangle is concerned with our relationship to Matter; it represents the 3 lower chakras: the solar plexus, sacral and root chakras, which ground us onto earth.

These energies meet in the 7th chakra: THE HEART.

According to Mary, every celestial Star of David offers a chance to bring Heaven closer to Earth by activating our HEART. When we open our hearts and envision a better world for ourselves and others, we can manifest our dreams on earth, such as the heavenly qualities of life: Love, Peace, Compassion, Abundance, Joy.

This is why the day of a celestial Star of David is an amazing opportunity for anchoring in these energies and setting your intent for manifestation of a more ecstatic, joyful, enlightened and abundant life. And so, July 29 is ideal for creating a ‘contract’ to manifest heaven on earth, to set your intent for manifestation, and actualize it with ritual, art, writing, singing, meditating etc.

There are as many kinds of ‘contracts’ as there are people. To help facilitate what Mary Shea calls a Sacred Heart Contract, she has created an audio recording of her tele-class regarding the July 29 Star of David. Part 1 describes the Star and its components, and Part 2 is a guide to creating a Sacred Heart Contract to harness the powerful manifestation energies of this Star.  http://www.shop.maryshea.com/Courses_c6.htm

In summary, the Star of David opens a multidimensional portal between Heaven and Earth. The entrance to this portal is in your HEART. The HEART of the MATTER – Bringing Heaven (the Waters of Life) to Earth (Matter) via the Heart

Stars of David since 1990
Here is a brief description of previous Stars of David since 1990. I have abbreviated the information from Mary Shea’s detailed descriptions which can be found on her website: http://www.maryshea.com/star.html  Understanding the past Stars can help lay the groundwork for working with the current Star. Think back to the dates of the Stars and what was going on in your life and how the themes may have affected you personally. The Stars tend to build on each other, so if one of them fell next to an important event in your life, you may want to revisit that theme and build a solution from there.


August 8, 1990: Like our current Star of David, this Star was an Earth-Water Star and held the potential for “material manifestation (earth signs) and cleansing (water signs)”. Unlike our current Star, the 1990 Star was a war star (Iraq invaded Kuwait six days before the Star occurred). Structures were melted by the combination of earth and water (which makes mud): the Berlin Wall as well as the Soviet Union were collapsing. We can see this same type of manifestation taking place in 2013 under our current Earth-Water Star: Turkey and Egypt’s government structures are under great tectonic pressure, and crumbling, in the wake of a tsunami of desire for change and freedom.July 18-19, 1992: Another Earth-Water Star of David, which had strong themes of relationship issues and communication issues.


July 21, 1995: This Star was Earth-Water but Air was also featured. A trend now began toward Air-Fire Stars, indicating “an acceleration of learning”. This learning included the desire for justice, and the increasing intolerance for war.


September 3, 1996/October 1, 1996 TWIN STARS (occurring w/in 6 months of each other): The September 3, 1996 Star was the first of four stars which included all four elements (earth, air, water, fire). “Differences in harmony are a theme of this short lived Star, the 1996 Twin Star occurring one month later.” Some of the themes includedgrounding, greater insight, and the drive to master our emotions and the actions/relationships that follow from them.


The October 1, 1996 Star had a TWIN energy to it, further accentuated by the full transition to Fire-Air Stars (away from Earth and Water). The Internet and cell phones were speeding up the pace of communications (an air theme) and the TWIN humanitarian figures Mother Teresa and Princess Diane died less than a week after this Star occurred. NOTE: our current, July 29, 2013, Star is also a TWIN STAR. See below for more info.


July 1, 1998: This was a Fire-Air Star (with some Water involved) and indicated the themes of examining our belief systems and also issues surrounding sexual relationships.


September 4, 2001: A Fire-Air Star, this Star was associated with financial issues and the management of energy. But this Star was a very potent WAR Star – it occurred just 7 days before the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This Star pointed back to the War Star of 1990, and continued with another War Star in 2002.November 16, 2002: A War Star – within a few months, the USA invaded Iraq in search of weapons of mass destruction. Economic issues continued, and began to go global.


June 24, 2007: This was not a War Star. This Star also had economic themes, especially that of debt. (The Stock Market Crash of 2008 was the ultimate out-picturing of the energy here.) Global Warming and frugality were also themes with this Star.


September 27, 2007: A War Star, related to the continuation of the war inAfghanistan. An *economic* war is also indicated here as the bottom was shaking out of the global economy: “the mortgage meltdown continued and worsened. Several big companies and banks either folded or were bought out. Many of the remaining banks looked for a bailout as did the US auto companies. This eventually led to a global recession.”


August 5, 2011: This was not a War Star. The *economic* war continued, however. In addition, Incidents of corruption in business and government came to light.


November 14, 2011: With this Star we saw a grass-roots approach to finding solutions for the crumbling economy and financial inequity. Occupy Wall Street and the 99% theme had just recently burst into outward manifestation. This Star also concerned issues around women’s rights, including health care.

The July 29, 2013 Star

The planetary energies of the July 29 Star of David are: Management of Resources and Energy (Venus in Virgo), Stepping into the right use of our Personal Power (Pluto in Capricorn), Allowing Abundance (Moon in Taurus), Expanding our Connections with others (Jupiter and Mars in Cancer), and Saturation in Pure Grace (Neptune in Pisces).

If you have planets or points in your chart between 8-13 degrees of Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) or Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), the Star of David will have a more intimate effect. But anyone with a personal planet or angles between 2º- 6º of any sign could benefit greatly from this as well. And even if your chart doesn’t have anything at these particular points, the Star is having an effect overall for everyone on Earth. Some may feel it more than others, but it is the prevailing zeitgeist of this summer.

The two interlocking triangles of the Star of David have some gifts for us:

The Grand Water Trine offers the opportunity for a cathartic cleanse of trapped, heavy emotions. The result can be a peaceful, blissful, gentle awareness of Pure Love, of being immersed in the sublime waters of Healing. If you’ve never felt intense Pure Love within your Heart, or felt it being radiated from someone else: you may feel it now. It is incredible.

The Grand Earth Trine offers a phoenix-like energy of resurrection after a descent into the underworld which began in October 2012. The result can be the productive building of new structures, filled with an abundance of all good things, magically delicious.

TWIN STAR on August 25, 2013!

Mary Fortier Shea announced on June 29 that there is a SECOND or TWIN Star of David occurring this summer! (To qualify as a Twin Star, the Stars have to occur within one month of each other. http://ow.ly/mSBib This is very exciting!

This is the first time we have seen a TWIN STAR OF DAVID since 1996. The companion Star to the July 29, 2013 Star occurs on August 25, 2013 when the Moon is again in Taurus as it was on July 29.

In the second Star, Mercury will inhabit the Virgo point of the Earth Trine – where Venus was on July 29. Mars maintains a connection with the Cancerian point of the Water Trine, while Jupiter in Cancer has moved out of range. Thus, Venus (women’s issues) and Jupiter (justice) are shifting in a power struggle during this month-long span of time.

With Mercury becoming more of a player in this Star, communication will be the crux upon which the power struggle turns. Thinking especially does make it so during these 30 days. Keep in mind that behind every watery emotion is a thought from which it springs. Trace the difficult emotion back to its originating thought and apply Higher Wisdom to changing that thought.

Water & Earth  
Starting now the Star of David begins to appear:The Water triangle (Grand Water Trine) appears first – on July 17 – like a glistening triangular liquid gem, a lake being fed by a waterfall and flowing to the ocean.Then on July 29 the Earth Trine descends and anchors the water into the earth realm, as if an island begins to descend into the ocean.It is as if we are approaching a body of water or a lake or a fountain with an earthen container – a clay vessel, a glass, bowl or cup – and using the vessel to hold the water, making it useful. The symbol for the Age of Aquarius is the Water Bearer, the one who holds a vessel of Life Giving Waters and pours them upon humanity.The shoreline, where sand meets sea, is also an example of how these energies work together – or a majestic mountain with a peaceful lake at its feet.When mixed together, these elements alchemize to make mud, for sinking purposes (sink into your feelings) or to be baked with the sunlight and fire of Spirit and used to  make clay bricks; to build a home and create shelter, support and structure for the human family.Parched soil soaks up water, gasping for breath, experiencing cooling relief and sustenance. Plants blossom and grow. Trees embrace the deep rivers of water under the earth and embrace its delicious relief with their roots, their earth arms.And water has a profound relationship with our most ancient earth: the ROCK.The softest thing in the universe overcomes the hardest thing in the universe. The ‘softest thing’ referred to is water. We see how, in the course of time, water can erode rock; how, without trouble, it disappears into the earth. Water looks soft, but really is very strong. Because it is silent and unpretentious, seems to have ‘no substance’, it achieves its purpose. – Tao Te Ching ch. 43.Water’s nature here teaches us to persevere, to keep at it, and to watch how we change over time. We can make a beginning now of healthy, real, lasting change that becomes written in the stone of our bones:What is harder than rock, or softer than water? Yet soft water hollows out hard rock. Persevere. – Ovidmerkaba
The Multi-dimensional Star of David

The Summer of Love celestial gift starts off as a grand and beautiful, flowing body of water and then begins a multidimensional journey into higher levels of consciousness, forming a Stargate:

earthstarThe Grand Trine morphs into a Star of David, when an earthen mountain merges with it to perfectly balance it.

The Star of David unifies and crystallizes, as we connect the dots between the 6 energies, forming a Grand Sextile, shifting into an 8-sided octagon.

The Grand Sextile morphs into a 3-dimensional figure – the Star Tetrahedron, sacred building block of all life on earth. This shape pops into place, vibrating with Light, and surrounds the planet.

Finally, the Star Tetrahedron morphs into the Merkaba, a personalized 4-dimensional Light Body that can be used in space and also within time to transport us to the dimensions beyond this reality: 5D, 6D, 7D, 8D, 9D and etc.

Some scientists theorize in the Many Worlds or Multiverse Theory  http://ow.ly/mVZIr that there are 11 different dimensions – at least – active in our world as we sit here reading this right now. The Merkaba is what activates in your aura when you are able to travel to these dimensions while still in your body on earth.

I believe that if we on a mass level could work CONSCIOUSLY with this particular celestial configuration (whenever it occurs, not just this summer) we have the potential to make a quantum leap forward in the ongoing activation of our Light Bodies – which are needed as we move more deeply into multidimensional consciousness in the Aquarian Age.


The Grand Sextile

The Star of David and the Grand Sextile are the same thing. The only difference is how you look at them, and whether or not you connect the dots.

grand sextileIn astrology, a sextile is an angle of 60° (1/6 of the 360° ecliptic, or 1/2 of a 120* trine). It is considered to be a harmonious aspect, with the energy flowing easily between the planets – similar to the trine aspect.

Please note how rare a Grand Sextile is in a personal natal chart: “On very rare occasions, a grand sextile forms in the heavens, with six planets evenly distributed around the chart at 60° angles from each other. This is a very beautiful pattern, of course, and there is something particularly pleasing, harmonious and well balanced about it. However, it is extremely rare and I have yet to see a chart with a true grand sextile – not even including extra points (such as Chiron and the Nodes).” – Clare Martin, Astrodienst http://www.astro.com/mtp/mtpt82_e.htm

The Grand Sextile, being a 6-sided hexagram, resonates with the number 6, which you could explore numerologically and meditate upon.

The beauty and rarity of this elegant sacred geometrical gift holds gifts for us. Meditate on an image of the formation of a Grand Sextile and receive loving information and gifts from another realm.

Envision the Star of David hanging in space around our planet. Then watch as grid lines pop up and the Star of David is transformed into a masterpiece of wholeness as it ‘completes itself’, i.e. as the points are connected by strands of light and information. Notice how the vibration of the Star of David differs from the Grand Sextile in subtlety and vibration, in meaning and message. As you do this, you are shifting into another dimension concerning your Star of David experience.


The Star Tetrahedron
merkabaMeditating on the Star Tetrahedron/Merkaba stirs a subtle influence on the evolution of our potential. It increases the spin of electrons within our nervous system and pituitary gland. This increase in spin can go faster than the speed of light and can exit time altogether, bringing more and more form to our radiant light bodies. – Craig BannermanAs we follow the path of the many dimensions of the Star of David Stargate, we shift into the mystical Star Tetradhedron. What is a Star Tetrahendron? Here is the complicated definition:”The ‘stellatedoctahedron’ (or stella octangula) was named by Johannes Kepler in 1609, though it was known to those geometric mathematicians. It was depicted in Pacioli’s ‘Divina Proportione’ in 1509. It can be seen as a 3D extension of the Star of David – it is two tetrahedra overlapping each other. It is a stage in the construction of the 3D Koch Snowflake (which is four small tetrahedra attached to a central, larger one).”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellated_octahedronThe simple explanation is found in there somewhere: a Star Tetrahedron is a Star of David which has morphed into a 3-dimensional figure. Another shifting of dimensions.

The Tetrahedral alone – i.e. before it doubles itself into a Star Tetrahedrom – “is the most fundamental building block of life on earth. Within it lies the energy that holds all life together. The bonds that hold atoms, particles and molecules together, all the way down to nano-particles and all the way up to macro-particles, are tetrahedral. Everything that exists as you conceive of it in a 3-dimensional world is held together by these tetrahedral bonds.” http://ow.ly/mW8s3

The Tetrahedron can only be explained by waxing into mystical language, such as the word Oneness. As you read these two quotes (which I admit are a little mind-bending) keep in mind that the Star Tetrahedron is the fusion of TWO of these remarkable forms:

“By tetrahedron, we mean the minimum thinkable set that would subdivide the Universe and have the interconnectedness where it comes back upon itself…The basic structural unit of physical Universe, the tetrahedron has the fundamental prime number oneness.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

“The tetrahedron is the first and simplest subdivision of Universe, because it could not have an insideness and an outsideness unless it had four vertexes and six edges. The tetrahedron is a form of energy package. It is transformable. There is no inside and no outside – it simply IS.” http://ow.ly/mW8s3

merkaba stargate

The Tetrahedron provides the backbone of Water (which of course is a huge part of the Star of David experience this summer) as well as DNA and the Silicon micro-chip. Our awareness of the Tetrahedron shows that we are opening our consciousness to these Aquarian energies and coming to understand them more fully:

(1) The most common arrangement of the Water molecule is in the geometric shape of the Tetrahedron.

(2) DNA is made of two spiraling strands that make many tetrahedra down the DNA helix. It is interesting to note that at conception each of us has one DNA strand from our mother and father. Two events that combine to make one. http://ow.ly/mW8s3

(3) The Star Tetrahedron is the geometric shape of a Silicon micro-chip. The StarmerkabaTetrahedron shape is the keeper of memory. This dovetails with the Memory of Water as discussed in Part 2 of this newsletter series. The word memory takes its origins from the ancient Hebrew words mem, which means Water and ohr, which means Spirit. As we meditate on the qualities of the Tetrahedron and the Silicon chip. Could it be true that as we evolve and activate the Merkaba (see below) the molecules of our cells are being alchemically shifted from Carbon into that of multi-dimensional Silicon?http://ow.ly/mW8xc

In addition, The Star Tetrahedron is an octogram shape, and is related to the number 8, which is vital to creation of life, the quickening of Spirit within the earthly womb: The Star Tetrahedron is the energy pattern followed when the male and female energies come together at the moment of conception. In fact, the resulting embryo takes this form at the 8 cell stage of development.

Meditating on the number 8 and its numerological meaning will be very powerful at this time.

The Rubik’s Cube is a variation of the Star Tetrahedron. What puzzle are we trying to unlock? Clearly it has to do with the mysteries Consciousness, Connectedness, and Oneness and the primal building blocks of Life. When you meditate on the Star Tetrahedron, you can access much high vibrational energy and wisdom.

Envision the Grand Sextile around the planet. Then see it suddenly morph into the 3-dimensional form of the Star Tetradhedron, bursting with light and buzzing with vibration as it surrounds the earth and raises the Light Quotient of everyone who walks here.

The Merkaba  
The Star Tetrahedron is also known as the mystical Merkaba, a vehicle in the etheric which is said to be related to spiritual enlightenment.To understand the Merkaba, there are many, many sources of information. Just reading about the Merkaba will be beneficial at this time, as it will activate the form in your energy field.Would recommend Drunvalo Melchizedek ( http://www.drunvalo.net/ ), who is considered to be one of the world’s experts on this spiritual technology, as the point of origin for your study.merkaba Drunvalo defines the Merkaba as follows:”The Merkaba is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. In ancient Egyptian “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.”Drunvalo defines the Merkaba in a video at this link:http://ow.ly/mW9gqIn Hebrew the Merkaba translates to ‘vehicle’ or ‘chariot’. We need this vehicle to travel to other dimensions. The geometric design that makes up the Merkaba Star has been known and utilized by civilizations in Atlantis, Lemuria, Tibet and Egypt. This star is the pinnacle for energy capture, transmutation, transfer and focused discharge.The word is broken down by ancient Egyptians as; M(e)r = place of ascending, Ka = Spirit, Ba = Soul. Another translation is Mer = light, Ka = Spirit, Ba = Body. It is the divine light vehicle used by Masters to connect and reach those in tune with the higher realms. It is made up of 2 star tetrahedrons and is believed that we all possess a Merkaba field around us waiting to be activated. The Merkaba serves to balance all the chakras and lead one into the whole. http://ow.ly/mW9fcObviously there is a goldmine of potential present in the Star of David when it ascends to this incredible formation known as the Merkaba.
