“According to the alchemists, the preparation of the philosophers’ stone must begin when the Sun enters the constellation of Aries and the Moon enters that of Taurus. Why? Because the Sun is exalted in Aries, and the Moon is exalted in Taurus. The sign that follows, Gemini, is ruled by Mercury. Now the symbol of Mercury is formed , from top to bottom, by the crescent of the Moon the disc of the Sun and the sign of addition (+). Therefore the symbol of Mercury expresses the union of the Sun and the Moon. Mercury is the child of the Sun and the Moon; it is the philosophers’ stone. This philosophers’ stone that the alchemists seek is, in reality, a symbol of the transformation of man. The alchemist works with the Sun and the Moon, that is to say, with the two principles of the will and the imagination; and thanks to this work he eventually transforms himself, becoming like the Sun and the Moon, radiant and pure.”
-Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
As per Aivanhov’s quote, and according to astrological calendars, the Sun will be entering Aries this year on March 20, 2014 at 12:57 PM, GMT, which is the official Spring Equinox time. The Moon will enter Taurus on April 1, 2014 at 5:20 AM, GMT. I should add also that Mercury rules Gemini and the Moon will be entering Gemini on April 3, 2014 and remain there until April 5, 2014.
In other words, with the Sun in Aries, the moon in Taurus and then Gemini, that week of April 1-5 will be a very potent time for anyone wishing to do serious earth-healing work, light work, meditation, prayer or any other form of serious white magick.
Just sayin’ 😉
