Sacred Number 12 – Paranormal Synchronicy

In 2003 a theory was hypothesized, with substantial foundation, that the universe is a dodecahedron. Dodecahedrons are 12-sided structures and are based on the theory of phi. Therefore, we have a universe shaped by 12 sides. Each side is shaped in the form of a pentagon. Yes, pentagrams. for those afraid of them for whatever erroneous reasons. (Please see our 17 Dec. 2019 post White or Black Magick)

If this is so, then it makes a lot of sense that the ancients considered 12 as an important sacred number. There’s a lot of evidence for that thought in all aspects of life. In Christianity Jesus had 12 deciples, in Judaism there are 12 Tribes, in Islam there are 12 Imams, and in some pagan religions there are 12 Titans and 12 Olympians.

In other aspects of life there are 12 months in a year and it’s interesting that within that are four seasons with three months each. 4 x 3 = 12. There are 12 signs of the Zodiac, the Sumerian number system was based on 12 & 60, there are 12 months in the Jewish calendar, 12 in a dozen, 12 inches in a foot, most people have 12 ribs, there are 12 systems in the body if you count the circulatory system that augments the cardiovascular system, and the list goes on.

So, how does this sacred number integrate with us? Well, everything that we know is in a constant state of vibration. All things are in constant motion. The Universe vibrates at 432 Hz. The Earth at 7.83 Hz and people mostly at 7.5Hz although the range is 3 – 17 Hz. Some theorize that in the last few years human Hz rates have increased up to 25 Hz. And, wouldn’t it figure that the most dangerous vibration for mankind is 7Hz. Every thing around us, whether it seems solid and immobile or not has vibration. And, vibration is energy. Whether we realize it or not, we interact with the Universe and everything within it through the energy of vibration.

Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras determined that each planet in our solar system has it’s own vibration and therefore sound. He referenced this sound to music with each planet’s motion sounding like one of the 12 notes in music, (the white notes: C, D, E, F, G, A, B & the black notes: C-sharp, D-sharp, F-sharp, G-sharp, A-sharp if ascending the scale. If one is descending the scale the black notes become: B-flat, A-flat, G-flat, E-flat, and D-flat).

The Universe is known to be a musical production of vibration. Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku based his String Theory on the harmony of vibrating strings. Albert Einstein said, “Cosmic music resonating through space is the mind of God.”

Regardless if we realize it or not, everything and everyone around us affects us emotionally, physically, and spiritually throughout our daily lives. Just as all of us don’t like the same music, same colors, same clothing, same people, etc. it’s more likely than not because everyone of us needs to be ‘in-sync’ with things surrounding us to feel good on all levels. The more we understand how things around us can make a difference in our lives the better chance we have to change them.

Is Your Sign Ophiuchus?

What Sign are you?  Are you sure?  It seems it depends upon how you view astrology.  The 12 Sun Signs we are all familiar with are named after constellations that travel around the ecliptic.  The ecliptic is a circle in the celestial sphere that appears to be the path the sun travels in a year. The celestial sphere is an imaginary circle in which the person looking at it is in the center.  Therefore, from this perspective, all celestial objects appear to lie along this plane.

There are other constellations, however, that the sun traverses on its annual course.  They are fixed stars, though, and astrologers don’t like to count them because some feel they aren’t relative to the study.  Many astrologers use a system that only deals with the sun’s relationship to the moon within the parameters of solstices and equinoxes.

This is also one of the major controversies between astronomers and astrologers.  Especially those scientists who would like to demean and dismiss astology as a legitimate study.

There are two major zodiacs – although many others as well.  The one used by most western astrologers is the Tropical Zodiac which was explained, in part, above.  The other is the Sidereal Zodiac which studies the sun’s position against a star background.  This is the system used primarily in the East and by astronomers.

Anyway, could our Zodiac possess a 13th Sign?  Yes – and perhaps it should.  The sun spends quite a bit of time transversing the constellation Ophiuchus from 30 November to 17 December.  That’s quite a bit of time to be in a place without having any affects, whatsoever.  So, if you’re born during those dates perhaps some of the traits or aspects of Ophiuchus has meaning for you.

Ophiuchus is situated between the Signs of Scorpio and Sagittarius.  It is called the ‘Serpent Holder’ and it’s sigil is a capital U with a horizontal wavy line through the center that represents the snake.  Ophiuchus  represents the Greek physician Ascelpius who is generally depicted holding a snake, similar to the Caduceus today that symbolizes the medical profession.

Ophiuchians would like to be healers or people who fix things.  They enjoy connectedness and are gregarious, quick-witted, industrious, and can be quite showy.  On the other hand, and there’s always a darker side, they can be moody, greedy, envious, and controlling.  As in any other astrological analysis, the planets in this house and how they are aspected contribute to the personality a person possesses.

This simplistic blurb doesn’t detail the many complexities of astrological chart construction using any of the multi-analytic systems available to astrologers, but the question remains – are you more Ophiuchus than Scorpio or Sagittarius?
