One night during the 2012 Boise Sync Cabin, Doug took me out into the fields to point out the stars. I looked up and I’d never seen a night sky as beautiful as that in my whole life. It was the sky that, until the invention of the electric light bulb, was the birthright of every human being on earth. Primal, in other words. Doug pointed out Cygnus (the swan) to me, and also Antares. And those names stuck with me, I always try to find Cygnus in the sky, and I even named my iPhone “Antares”.
After I got back home from Idaho, I wrote an erotic short story outline called The Birth of Antares, who was the bastard son of the Greek tyrant of Corinth and Andromeda - a prostitute in the temple of Aphrodite. He appealed to me because Antares is the antonym of Aries, the god of Mars, and war.
So the October 28 story about the Antares rocket explosion carrying the Cygnus cargo to the International Space Station (ISS or in sync terms, Isis, the Star of the Sea, who was called Aphrodite by the Greeks) was just a bit over the top.
Antares lies in the Scorpio constellation, which we entered on Oct. 23, directly after Libra. In fact, Antares is known as the “Eye of the Scorpion”. The Scorpion King is a proto-dynastic Egyptian king figure.
This would appear to be important, see Loren Coleman’s post: The Scorpion and the Shining
I found this to be an extremely powerful sync, that the scorpion king’s rocket went up in flames as we entered Scorpio. We note that JFK was assassinated on 11/22, the last day of Scorpio. It was a "pay attention" moment.
Scorpio is the most powerful sign in the zodiac, and it is no wonder Scorpios have a reputation for being mysterious, complex and intense. They are ruled by the planet Pluto, which governs sex, death, transformation, and atomic power. ~Astrology wiki
Hello, Marty McFly.
The symbol of the scorpion is based on Scorpius, a giant scorpion sent by Gaia to kill Orion. ~wikipedia
Why would Gaia need to kill Orion? Because he threatened to kill every beast on earth. As we descend into what is now called the next Great Extinction event, we wonder if Gaia isn’t arming her next scorpion. The hunter becomes the hunted.
The strange thing is that I had another dream the morning of the 28th, the night before the Antares rocket:
I was with some people in a room, I think one was my (deceased) brother - The general atmosphere was that of a late night frat house drinking game. We were playing a “game” where we let these disgusting worm/scorpion things bite and crawl through our skin and partly down our veins, drinking our blood. Then we’d grab them, being careful not to get stung by their dangerous tails, pull them out of our veins, bite their tails off and eat them! That was the tastiest part - the tail, with it’s stinger and venom sac - it was sort of a delicacy.----------------------
