More Radiant than the Sun

Dragon In Dreams: Interpret Now! - Auntyflo.com

In my dream last night I ask the dragon: ‘What light is more radiant than the Sun?’ The dragon being caught off guard answers off the cuff. ‘A light born from out of the darkness of the human soul!’ And just as he says this, the dragon immediately turns into an angel! We are both astonished, but I take it in stride, & then it comes to me to say:

‘Is this the secret of the demons then?’. ‘Yes’, says the angel, ‘When the light of the Sun – the Word, entered into the darkness of the earth, a seed was set for a New Sun. This New Sun is the Light born from darkness. This is Christ in you.

The Winchester Psalter: No Way Out | The Art Minute

The demons work to keep this truth from the consciousness of humanity; & so you must seek it from the wisdom of Isis-Sophia spread out in the starry heights.

There, written like a script, is her wise reflection. Re-member her, & the way is revealed, in which evil can be used against itself, so that it can be transformed into goodness – But, it must be thru the human consciousness imbued with an Active Love-filled Will, that it shall come to light.’

And so it is – from a Longest Night – Great Conjunction inspiration…

The moon sweeps by Mars and then Uranus on December 22 and 23, 2020.

22 December 2020 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Use the waxing gibbous moon to find the red planet Mars. Mars isn’t exactly blazing now, as it was some months ago when Earth was passing between it & the sun. But Mars is still bright, & still very red, a stunning sight high in the sky at nightfall.

O Rex Gentium – Prince of Peace

O Rex Gentium, et desideratus earum,
lapisque angularis, qui facis utraque unum:
veni, et salva hominem,
quem de limo formasti.

O King of the nations, and their desire,
the cornerstone making both one:
Come and save the human race,
which you fashioned from clay.

Isaiah had prophesied: “For a child has been born for us, a son given us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 –He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” Isaiah 2:4

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

St. Florian Patron Saint Of Fire Fighters Sign - Exclusive Design!

304 – Deathday of Saint Florian a Christian holy man, and the patron saint of Linz, Austria; chimney sweeps; soapmakers, & firefighters. The “Florian Principle” (known in German language areas as “Sankt-Florians-Prinzip”) is named after a somewhat ironic prayer to Saint Florian: “O heiliger Sankt Florian, verschon’ mein Haus, zünd’ and’re an”, equivalent to “O Holy St. Florian, please spare my house, set fire to another one”. This saying is used in German much like the English “not in my back yard”, when the speaker wants to point out that some person tries to get out of an unpleasant situation by an action that will put others in that very same situation. The name Florian is considered synonymous with fireman in the German speaking world. In some cases call for a fireman will actually be spoken as calls for Florian.

The Dark Side Of Visible And Invisible Light

POD (Poem Of the Day)

~Darkness gives
Way to light…
Confusion to understanding…
My green heart
Witch was pitched into the fire
Sizzles like fresh kill…
& the stars fade like memory
The instant before dawn…
High in the East, Bella Luna rounds space
Opening like a laughing eye…
That which can be named must exist…
That which is named can be written…
That which is written is remembered…
What is remembered lives…
Let the rest
Rest…

7 thoughts on “More Radiant than the Sun

  1. Hi Hazel,

    I finally had an opportunity to look at the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction tonight (12/22), after many days of cloudy weather, and the conjunction has occurred! Through my binoculars, to the right of the evergreen tree, Jupiter is now situated to the left, and Saturn to the right, or east-west. This was observed at 5:30 pm PST. I would have loved to see it at the moment that it first took place. I think it would have been a kind of miracle-moment to behold, but the weather here in the PAC Northwest has been so uncooperative over the last two weeks. But, it has now happened, and only beholds the next engagement.

    Now, we can expect a third partner coming up around the time of Ash Wednesday in February. Although it is still the morning star, Venus (occult Mercury will meet these two so-called “gas giants” then, and the time will be very appropriate for its occurrence. Tracing back to 7 BC, Saturn and Jupiter were in conjunction then, and the Magi saw these two planets as a sign in the sky which told them that the King of the Jews had been born. Yet, it was the third planet, Mercury, that they began to follow , which eventually led them to a house in Bethlehem, where a two-year old boy lived.

    Every 20 years, these so-called “great conjunctions” of Saturn and Jupiter take place. Also noteworthy is the fact that the planet Mercury, which is now called ‘Venus’, is also there because of its rather swift movement through the ecliptic. It travels 30 degrees of the ecliptic in just nearly 19 days, and spends a great deal of its time as the coveted, ‘Morning Star’, which RS referred from time to time as the “good star that anthroposophy navigates its ship’s coordinates by”.

  2. Thank you for sharing your dream! I had an experience yesterday…It was maybe 11:00 pm and I was up later than usual writing … I was in a fairly clear and open space, up late for me, contemplating and in an instant I had one of those thoughts that sneak in and take root, – and I caught the idea as soon as it came, recognized the adversary behind the thought, and “said” with heart thinking,  “I recognize who you are.” And Ahriman was transformed into a being radiating the Sun!!!  There was recognition and joy that flowed between me and this transformed being!
    And then today I read the opening lines of your blog…more joy and emporment! Thank you!

    1. Ahhh Victoria – Yes, with the shift from the Solstice along with the power of the Jupiter & Saturn Conjunction resonating, many transformations are possible. What a blessing when we are able to receive conformation of these realities which are so often veiled. Interesting that it happened outside of your usual routine. I often find that we have to shake loose of our habit life every once in awhile to open the space. Although I am a firm believer in good healthy rhythms as well. Those beings live in us so deeply so it takes awareness to recognize & call them out. We all just want to be seen & loved. xox

        1. Your responses have inspired me to the theme of naming & being seen, which I will post after my study group, later today.
          Thank you for your insights

  3. Thanks Hazel for sharing the enlightenment from your dream. The demons won’t be thrilled with you sharing their “modus operandi” – that took courage to share that.

    1. Hi Les – Or perhaps they are longing to be redeemed & we are meant to get the word out so it can happen. We certainly see alot in our world today calling out for healing…
      Thanks for tuning in
      Blessings of the season
      xox
