SIGNS in the firmament of the heavens- What the pattern of eclipses this year prognosticate




Mashiachs birth day !

God has given us potential we could not even imagine. One just needs to Move forward in truth with Divine faith and when you do, you will see the insurmountable barriers yield and the ominous threats will just fade away. You will see that despite all the “evidence” to the contrary, we have it within our power to bring the redemption AS MASHIACH WAS BORN ON THE 9TH OF AV.. The sky is not the limit. All depends on God as He is the one who gives all abilities. And there is nothing He cannot not do. It is we by separation from Him, who limit ourselves greatly. MASHIACH WAS BORN ON THE 9TH OF AV, A NEW HIGHER CONCOUSNESS ENTERED THE WORLD now its up to us to actualize it ! Hopefully we can develop this birth of mashiach to full capacity and not snuff Him with pride parades and other anti Hashem activities of the “erev rav”.

Its written in the Zohar 60 is awakening of the first masiach (Messiah). In 6 more is the awakening of the 2nd. This leaves 6 more years until 72 (maybe its 72 years since the birth of the state of Isreal). At that time the redemption will take place.

According to the Zohar on page 119a of Vayera: The redemption of Israel will come about through the mystic force of the letter vav (in Hashem’s name), namely in the 6th millennium, and more precisely, after 6 seconds and half the time that remains. This is the Zohar’s way of saying the 666th year of the 6th millennium

The year 5666 was 2/3 of the way through the 6th millennium, from that point onward Mashiach can be coming at any time.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”(Genesis 1:14)

On Friday will occur the longest “blood red moon” of the century

 The Eclipse will  be visible this Friday from 10:30 PM Friday in Jerusalem, Israel. the maximum eclipse, where “[the] moon is closest to the center of the shadow [cast by the Earth]” begins at 11:21 PM, Jerusalem, Israel, the totality lasting for an hour and 43 minutes, it won’t be visible in north America.


NASA data shows that there was a tetrad of blood moons  between 1949 and 1950, a key time for Israel’s modern-day  birth.

“In 1948, that’s the year Israel became a state,” he explained. “The thing that happened prior to that was the tragedy of the Holocaust, which ended in the rejoicing of statehood.”

Another tetrad happened between 1967 and 1968, a period which saw the Six-Day War — a moment of “triumph” when Jerusalem was reunified and became the eternal capital of the Jewish people once again.

There was a string of four “blood moons” in the year 5775, and one of them shined over the Passover seder. Whenever this happened in the past, enormous events took place in Jewish history.

Since then we have see the grown of Horrible evil on the left and the Rise of President Trump who stands by Israel and is making “tikun” of Edom.


One needs to decide that no matter what the obstacle their resolve will not be shaken. This is the kind of dedication that brings one to the ultimate freedom of God and the Torah. It needs to be one’s life, that’s the only reason one would be willing to give their life for it  IT IS A LOVE AS THIS THAT WILL BRING REDEMPTION !





.   The “Mishkan” (Tabernacle) was completed during the month of Kislev its dedication was in Nissan. The construction of the first “Beit HaMikdash” (Temple) by  King Solomon began in the month of Iyar, and was completed in the month of Cheshvan.  The dedication of the Temple was nearly a year after the end of its construction in the month of Tishrei. The Bnei Yissaschar teaches that the future dedication of the third Temple will take place during Cheshvan.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;

and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

(Genesis 1:14)

  For the third time in less than a year on this coming Passover of 2015, the moon will dip into Earth’s shadow, turning its bright white globe a coppery red in a matter of minutes.

The total phase of the lunar eclipse will only last about 5 minutes, making it the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.

The action begins at 3:16 a.m. PST on the morning of April 4 when the edge of the moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.

For the next hour and 45 minutes, Earth’s shadow will move across the lunar disk, ultimately covering the entire moon at 4:58 a.m. PST.

Some total eclipses last for more than an hour, in this case, totality spans just 4 minutes and 43 seconds since the moon will be skimming the outskirts of the Earth’s shadow, rather than passing centrally through it.

The pattern of eclipses on Jewish Holy Days correspond with significant events in history.

There will be a string of four “blood moons” in the year 5775, and one of them will shine over the Passover seder. Whenever this happened in the past, enormous events took place in Jewish history.

The first and last of the Holidays Passover and Tabernacles, have had

lunar eclipses on historic dates such as when Israel was reestablished and when they

captured Jerusalem in 1967. We see a similar phenomenon occurring on Purim.

About Those Blood Moon Tetrads

Now it turns out there will be a group of total lunar eclipses, each one falling on a Jewish holiday. Typically there are two lunar eclipses a year, spaced about six months apart; you will see them if your side of the earth is turned toward the moon when they happen. Here is the schedule for this year and next year:

4/15/2014 (Passover)

10/8/2014 (Sukkot)

4/4/2015 (Passover)

9/28/2015 (Sukkot)

Blood Red Moons will occur like this ..

Passover of 5774 (April 15th 2014);

Tabernacles 5775 (Oct 8th 2014);

Passover of 5775 (April 5th 2015)

Tabernacles 5776 (Sept 28th 2015).

Intersperses within those dates are two solar eclipses :

Rosh Chodesh Nissan (March 20th 2015)

A hybrid solar eclipse” on Nisan 1 on 3/20/71 followed by another hybrid solar eclipse on Rosh Hashanah on 9/12/71 happened around the destruction of the Temple,”

Sunday’s early morning event – an annular solar eclipse that changes into a total solar eclipse – will be visible on the eastern coast of North America, although those living in Africa will experience it best.

Sunday’s eclipse (March 20th 2015) will become total, completely blocking out the sun and allowing those in its shadow to see stars during the day time. It is this shift from annular to total along its path that makes this a “hybrid” eclipse.

Rosh Hashanah Sept 13th 2015

Three Jewish holidays always happen when there is a full moon: Purim, Passover, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). Therefore, it is not strange to have an eclipse on one of those holidays, and because Passover and Sukkot are exactly six months apart, when Passover gets an eclipse, Sukkot will probably get one, too. Of the 230 eclipses that occurred in the twentieth century, 37 were on Jewish holidays.

However, it is very rare for both eclipses to fall on Jewish holidays for two years in a row, and for all of them to be total not Eclipses.

The Book of Joel when speaking about end-time Biblical prophecies, mentions that in the last days, “the moon will turn to blood.”

They also point to the seven tetrads that have happened over the past two thousand years, Here are the dates for these tetrads:








Around eight months before the Temple was destroyed we find on 10/18/69 there was a partial lunar eclipse on the Feast of Sukkot.

A total solar eclipse followed this on Nisan 1-3/30/70, the beginning of the religious year.

Two weeks later there was a penumbral lunar eclipse on Passover on 4/14/70.

An annular solar eclipse followed this on Rosh Hashanah on 9/23/70.

Then another penumbral lunar eclipse on Sukkot on 10/8/70,”

In the blood moons of 1493 and 1494, the Jews were expelled from Spain.

1949-1950: This has been linked to modern Israel becoming independent in 1948. However, the first blood moon comes eleven months AFTER independence, and even the 1948 war was over by then.

The blood moons in 1949 and 1950 came right after the nation of Israel was born, giving the Jews a homeland for the first time in thousands of years.

And in 1967 and 1968 it was linked to the Six-Day War.

1967-1968: Well, maybe. The Six Day War happened between the first and second blood moons, and Israel took East Jerusalem, reuniting the city.

This would be totally unbelievable, if it wasn’t verified by the NASA.

Only one of these 4 lunar eclipses will be visible from Israel.

According to NASA data, there was a tetrad from 1493 to 1494 (there were three preceding tetrads that century as well, but they did not fall on Jewish holidays).

And that’s not the only series of blood moons linked to Israel, as NASA data shows that yet another tetrad unfolded between 1949 and 1950, a key time for Israel’s modern-day manifestation.

“In 1948, that’s the year Israel became a state,” he explained. “The thing that happened prior to that was the tragedy of the Holocaust, which ended in the rejoicing of statehood.”

Another tetrad happened between 1967 and 1968, a period which saw the Six-Day War — a moment of “triumph” when Jerusalem was reunified and became the eternal capital of the Jewish people once again.

NASA data also shows that four blood moons emerged between the years 1909-1910, 1927-1928 and 1985-1986, but these also did not fall on the Jewish holidays.

NASA says the current tetrad of blood moons that started in April 2014 will last through Sept. 28, 2015. The last tetrad to occur happened between 2003 and 2004, though it did not fall on Jewish holidays.

NASA data does appear to show six others will happen this century, but none appear to have all four blood moons fall on both Passover and Sukkot as they do in 2014 and 2015.

All four can be seen from the western hemisphere.

Therefore God has a message of judgement in the eclipses directed at the Americas, not at Israel. Know, 

The redemption of Yisrael from Egypt occurred in the month of Nisan, when the Mars is dominant.

The “kiyor” in our “parsha” here is introduced separated from all the other vessels of the “Mishcon” (Tabernacle).  mentioned after all the rest of the vessels,

The Seforno teaches that the “kiyor” is not mentioned above with the rest of the vessels because its intent was not to directly cause the Shechinah (Divine Presence) should reside in the Sanctuary, as the other vessels but to prepare the kohanim for their service. All the other vessels fulfilled a direct service of God in the Mishkan and caused Godliness to rest therein. The “kiyor”, on the other hand, served the purpose of washing the hands and feet of the kohanim before they served in the Mishkan. The  “kiyor” therefore was a preparation for the kohanim for their service and not part of the service of the “mishcon” itself. The Torah relates that the copper used for making the “kiyor”  was from copper mirrors donated by the women. The mirrors  were made for and used to help the women enhance their power of attraction and temptation so to arouse their husbands’ desire, copulate with them and conceive children making greater the nation of Israel. By using the Mirrors to make the “kiyor” the darkness  is turned to light this shows the excellence of light emerging from darkness. A object of seduction becomes one of Holiness.

   The“kiyor” was situated between the Tent of Meeting and the altar. In Mishna, Keilim R. Yossi stated: “In five respects in the area between the Ulam and the altar on par with the Heichal: for those afflicted with blemishes, or with a wild growth of hair, or who have drunk wine, or whose hands or feet are unwashed may not enter there.”

Moshe acted as a “Cohen” for the seven days of consecration of the “Mishcon”. Moshe’s descendants were deprived of priesthood as it is says, “But as for Moshe the man of God, his sons are named among the tribe of Levi;”.

When the Hebrews left Egypt they Sacrificed Lambs, in this Parsha they made the golden calf. Why these animals ?

During the period of the Exodus from Egypt, the astrological sign dominating the era was Aries the ram. This is why a lamb, related to the ram was the Paschal sacrifice. The lamb was the main God of the Era to the Egyptians and so the Hebrews killed it in the month of its greatest dominance, Aries the ram dominates the Hebrew month of Nisson. The month of Passover. This “mazal” dominated events for 2,000 years, from about the time of Avraham until the time of the destruction of the Second Temple. This was a time of severe judgment, for Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, who rules over blood. The epoch of Taurus the bull is what preceded the epoch of Aries. According to the astrologers, it was during the epoch of Taurus that Adam first walked the earth. The Erev Rav therefore considered this to be an auspicious sign. Thus, when they chose an image that they wished to represent GOD, they took the image that they thought was the highest and most powerful image. They could not conceive that GOD was above images and astrology. Also the gold calf was made of 120 talents of gold, corresponding to the 120 permutations of the 5 letters of the name Elokim. They thought they could replace God, not so smart.

The wicked Egyptians worshipped Aries and Taurus (ram and bull) because they ascribed to these animals special powers, and therefore did not eat them. The Egyptians worshipped Aries which is symbolized by a ram therefore they abstained from killing sheep, and held shepherds in contempt as its written “behold we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?” (Ex. 8:22) and “for every shepherd is an abomination to the Egyptians” (Gen. 46:34) Idolaters objected also to killing cattle which they held as a object of worship. The people of India up to this day do not slaughter cattle.

There for the Torah commands us to offer sacrifices of these kinds:

You shall bring your offering of the cattle, the herd and of the flock” (Lev. 1:2)

By this the sacrifices would keep us away from idol worship and blot it out of our memory.

If Yisrael would have accepted donations from all of the world through the Mikdash. They would have refined the whole world but because of  the sin of the golden calf  they fell from this level and the “tikun” fixing could not be achieved. The “erev rav” (mixed multitude) brought on this calamity. Our first priority must be to separate from the “Eirev Rav”.

Our sages of Blessed memory have said ”The Shabot is equal in importance to all the other commandments”, ”observing the Shabot properly is equivalent to observing the whole Torah”. Looking closely at this weeks parsha we may see a bit of illumination concerning this concept. The Rambam teaches that Parshat Ki Tisa teaches the parameters of the “melachot” (forbidden labors of Shabbot)  are learned from the “Mishkan”. (Tabernacle) specifically its construction.

It says ”The children of Israel shall keep the Shabot through out their generations” and other words giving us the Shabot and then immediately ”And he gave to Moses, when he finished talking with him upon Mount Sinai, two tablets of Testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God” (exodus 31). May we all be able to commune with God on the Holy Shabot and be granted our portion in the Torah. The Torah was given on Shabot which was the Holiday of Shavout.

Like all parts of the Torah here also we can see ways to strengthen our attachment to our Creator, may His Name be blessed. Let us look to before Moses came down from Mount Sinai with his face shinning to great to behold. When they put a vail on him to shield his brilliance from sight. Just before Moses came down God told him ”You shall not offer leaven with your sacrifice” (exodus 34). Our sages tell up leaven represents arrogance, pride and self love. How can one truly serve God will all their heart when they believe their thoughts and desires are most important. There is no room for this self love in sacrifices or fulfilling Mitvot (Biblical commandments), for heaven forbid this self love may get in the way from fulfilling a precept with the greatest expression of the love of God. By nullifying ourselves to become a vessel for Supernal will, the way of God we can as alluded to by the commandment of giving the first born to God. Which is also given in this section. Realize that God comes first, no matter what. We should serve God above all with our time, our selves our money all that we have as King David said, peace unto him ”The Torah of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver.” (Psalm 119). We are told here not to leave any of the Passover offering till the morning. We know that sacrificial meat held past the allotted time for eating is ”piggul” (forbidden), and cannot be eaten by us. God tells us in his Torah ”My offering, my food to be consumed by my fire”. As part of the sacrifices we are able to have as food, if one ate it in the allotted time. So from ”My offering, my food” we can see the the service of God in some way is food to God. This is also as the verse in Psalms ”Give strength to God” (psalm 68). We should not delay in bringing this to him, before it is “piggul”, too late. What could possibly be more important than doing the will of the God. We should run to do His commandments. There is nothing else. May it be that by not offering sacrifice or Divine service with leaven, being barriers of self love of one’s own ego, we can bring God the first born. Bring everything to Him. As God comes first and we will not delay in his service, allowing the offering to become “piggul”, but we will run to fulfill His commandments and do them in a very beautiful way that leads to true piety like is talked about in path of the Just by the Ramcha”l. One must have zeal as this will bring Holiness which will bring prophesy and this brings Eliyahu.1 Those who while in this world strengthen themselves with the having bold zeal in things of Holiness. When they fall in this world they quickly work to rise to a higher level. Then we will see the verse fulfilled ”I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among you shall see the work of the Lord; for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” (Exodus 34) With our Righteous Messiah quickly in our days.


CONCERNING TIME 9th Av and 72 names the moon landing, PLUTO 248
July 19, 2012, 8:56 am
Filed under: 72 names, 9TH AV, Angels, Astrology, SUN | Tags: , , , , ,


updated September 5 2017

We know the fast of Tisha B’av was indeed observed even during the Second Temple period for it is written Mishnah Rosh Hashanah 1:3:

For six new moons do emissaries go out for Nissan because of Passover, for Av because of the fast, for Elul because of Rosh Hashanah, for Tishrei to correct [the dates of] the festivals, for Kislev because of Hanukkah, and for Adar because of Purim. And when the Temple was standing they went out even for Iyyar because of  Pesah Sheni

Interesting there is a A beraita found in Yerushalmi Beitza 2:2,  61b and Bavli Ta’anit13a saying:

All those required to immerse themselves do so in the usual manner on Tisha B’av and on Yom Kippur… R. ChananYa”h the Assistant High Priest said: The [destruction of the] House of our God deserves that the priests should lose one immersion on its account. R. ChananYa”h lived and died before the Destruction.

Rabbi Judah HaNassi planted a tree on Purim, and bathed in the market  of Zippori on the Seventeenth of Tammuz, he wanted to uproot Tisha B’av which fell on Shabbat, which is postponed  till after Shabbat. Rabbi said: since it was postponed, let it be not observed, the Sages did not agree with him..   , Rabbi Judah chose the slogan, “David King of Israel lives” (Rosh Hashanah 25a). Rabbi Judah the Prince viewed himself as the King of the Jewish people (see Horayot 11b). As a result of this Messianic mood, Rabbi Judah the Prince may have tried to abolish Tisha B’av, but the Sages of his time “did not agree with him” as they knew the ‘good times’ they were living in would not last..

Every 28 years the sun returns to the place it stood at the time of its creation. At that time the God has told us it is good to bless his name at that time in particular with these words. The text of the blessing itself is as follows:

“ברוך אתה ה’ אלהינו מלך העולם עושה מעשה בראשית”
Blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the Universe maker of the works of Creation.

We are now in the 207th period of the blessing of the sun. The word Hebrew word “ohr-aleph-vav-resh” which means “light” has a numerical value of 207. We entered this 207 period when we made the blessing last on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 .

The seventy two 3 letter names are a timepiece with which one can understand where we are on the path to the big Sabbath. Each one of the seventy two names represents a astronomical quinary-5 degrees along the celestial ecliptic.. In 5750/1990 they left the name ייי (crab19deg.) . The seventy two names are 72 gates that are over the earth and which its passes through in its vast periods of time and civilizations.

Humans first walked the surface of the moon, in the summer of 1971 on a Sabbath which that year happened to be the day of Tisha’b’Av. It was on that day humans walked and breathed on the moon. This year Tisha’b’Av falls on Shabbot, next Sabbath could be BIG. Especially concidering whats going on in the world these days.

From the Central pillar the three distinct movements of the Earth globe flow. These three rotation, revolution and spiritual development are a great secret to the profound teachings of the “mekubalim” (kabbalists). These 3 factors provide us with the experience of shanah/time, olam/matter and nephesh/soul(being).

The planet Pluto veils the most hidden of the sephirot/keter, the Crown, the united highest level where all souls are united in the soul world. The planet Pluto takes 248 to go around the sun. The ancient book Sepher Hechalot/ the book of palaces teaches us that the wingspan of a Caruv is precisely 248 years distance!

Caruv were the type of angel that sat upon the ark of the covenant from which God emanated his Prophesy. There are 248 possitive commandments. 248 are the number of bones in the body.The numerical value of the name, אוריאל, is 248 which also equals the value of the angel chief – רזיאל=248. אוריאל is called “sar hapanim” (angel of the face). He reveals “Ruach ha Kodesh” (the Holy spirit). רזיאל is the angel of Secrets.

The חמה is female compared to the שמש. The לבנה is female compared to the ירח. The male sun and moon shine into the seven planets

The 4th of July-Roman Peace (Pax Romana) and the 17th of Tammuz

THE GOD DID NOT WANT ANY DAYS OF MOURNING BUT HOLIDAYS EVERY MONTH !  Rav Calphon in Aor Ganuz writes that the 17 of Tamuz would have been the greatest of holidays, it the “luchot” (Tablets of the covenant) were not shattered on that day. May it be quickly in our days !

We learn in Pesika d’Rav Kahana  from Rabbi Levi he  said: During every month of the summer, God wanted to give Israel a Festival. In Nisan, He gave them Pesach. In Iyar, He gave them Pesach Sheni [on the 14th of the month, a day when the Pesach offering was brought by those who could not offer it on the 14th of Nisan]. In Sivan, He gave them Shavuot. In Tammuz, He wanted to give them a major festival, but they made the golden calf and He annulled [the Festivals that had been set for] Tammuz, Av, and Elul. When Tishrei came, He repaid them with Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, and Succoth. God said, “Tishrei repays others [i.e., makes up for the festivals missing in the previous three months]. Shall he not take for himself as well [i.e., is it possible that the month not have its own Festival]?” He therefore gave it one day – Shemini Atzeret.

In Magillit Tynit we learn that the 8th, 9th and 10th of Tevet were observed as days of mourning as on the 8th the Torah was translated to Greek, the sages compare this to as grave a sin as making the golden calf. On the 9th Nachemyah and Ezra died and on the 10th of Tevet, which is the 10th day of the 10th month the siege on Jerusalem began by Bavel.

Parashat Matot, Masei and Devarim— are read during the interval of “Bein HaMeitsarim” (between the straits), the three weeks between the 17th of Tammuz and the 9th of Av. ALL THESE PARSHA COME TO REMIND US THAT WE NEED TO FIGHT AGAINST THE EVIL FORCE AS THEY ARE RELENTLESS AND THERE IS MUCH TO LOSE !

From the Senate in Rome till the Senate in Washington there has never been another like it

On July 4th in 13 B.C. began the culmination of Italy’s first unification under Rome as well as the start to the Roman Peace (Pax Romana), a 200-year period of relative peace in Europe and the Mediterranean. Roman “peace”  came from crushing opposition by military force.

Pax was a Roman goddess and the personification of peace, the Roman  equivalent of the Greek goddess Irene (Eirene). Augustus promoted the goddess Pax, who is depicted as a young woman with a cornucopia and olive branch or staff. A temple to Pax (Templum Pacis or Forum Pacis), built on the site of a meat market, in Rome, by Vespasian, was dedicated in 75. This would be shortly after the Roman destruction of Jerusalem.

In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring  independence  from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

This day July 4, 1776 was in the Hebrew Biblical calendar the 17th of the month of Tammuz.

On the 17th day of Tammuz, Jews the world over fast and lament to  commemorate  the many calamities that have befallen our people on this ominous day.

Moses descended Mount Sinai on the 17th day of Tammuz and, upon seeing the Golden Calf broke the first set of Tablets carrying the Ten Commandments.

On the 17th of Tamuz the Greek occupation forces destroyed the oldest existing Torah Scroll and then placed a idol in the Temple.

In the First Temple Era on the 17th day of Tammuz The priests  in the First Temple stopped offering the daily sacrifice on this day

And the next year on the 17th day of Tammuz the walls of Jerusalem  were breached after many months of siege by Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian forces.

King Menashe, one of the worst of the Jewish kings, had an idol placed in the Holy Sanctuary of the Temple on . 17th day of Tammuz

In the time of the Roman persecution, Apostomos, captain of the occupation forces publicly burned the Torah on 17th day of Tammuz

Titus and Rome breaching the walls of Jerusalem in 70 CE on the 17th day of Tammuz

Pope Gregory IX ordering the confiscation of all manuscripts of the Talmud in 1239 on the 17th of Tammuz

In 1391, more than 4,000 Jews were killed in Toledo and Jaen, Spain on the 17th day of Tammuz.

In 1559 the Jewish Quarter of Prague was burned and looted on the 17th day of Tammuz.

The Kovno ghetto was liquidated on the 17th day of Tammuz in 1944

In 1970 Libya ordered the confiscation of all Jewish property on the 17th day of Tammuz

Noah sending out the first dove to see if the Flood waters had receded was on the 17th day of Tammuz, .Pax Romana  July 4th all being the same day the 17th day of Tammuz is no coincidence. It is no coincidence at all, any intelligent person can see that. This pattern of tragedy does not stop at the 17th of Tamuz but continues for 3 weeks, till the 9th of the Biblical month of Av when on the same day Both temples were destroyed and many other tragedies happened. This “dangerous” period is called “Bain Ha’Mitzarim“. Time is a fluid continuum and according to our actions we create the influence of the Time. The sins that the children of Israel did on the 17th of tamuz lead up to the month of Av which is the astrological sign “Ariyah” (Leo) which is a fire sign according to astrology that is prone to Judgment. But ultimately it is the God who imposes the orders of influence of the Heavenly bodies, Astrology in order to make needed correction in His creation. Once we learn the lesson we will no longer need the severities of this time to be channeled to the world. One this will be when we have made corrections for the errors and lacking we inflicted in this time period. This is becouse as said in saying of our fathers ‘All is foreseen but there is freedom of choice”. The 17th of Tamuz was the result of the sin of the Golden calf in the first year after Yisrael left Egypt. The 9th of Av resulted from the sin of the spies. Time is a fluid continuum for evil or good, which builds..

On July 27th, 2004 Senate candidate Barack Obama spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. Obama walked on stage unknown, and walked off as a star. July 27th, 2004 was the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Av, “Tisha B’Av.” The perpetual day of mourning for the Jewish people. It is the day when both Holy Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed, also the same day the spies in the Bible brought a bad report about the land. It this was this day that Obama’s star began to rise, so it surely wasn’t good for the People of Israel. Barack Hussein Obama in Hebrew is numerical value – בראק חוסיין אובאמה – 502. The numerical value of “Edom Ishmael”, like this – אדום ישמעאל – is also 502. The Zohar says the unification of Edom Ishmael make Amalak (Souls who hate God and His people) Barack Hussein Obama is the 44th President of the USA 44 is numerical value דם (blood) This year, the 4th of July Independence day celebration falls on Shabbat, the 17th of Tammuz, which is to Yisrael a day of mourning and fasting. Know, this brings us full cycle as America was founded on the 17th of Tammuz ,also a Shabbot on the 4th of July in 1776 Just this week the American supreme court ruled that Yerushalayim does not belong to Israel, but the court decided to make gay marriage legal and to be enforced through all 50 states. Also this week they made the White house lit up in rainbow colors, symbolic of the covenant of Noach, which reminds us that when God is very upset with the people on earth, like he was at the time of the flood He will not destroy the world with a flood. In the same week the court ruled that a monument commemorating the 10 commandments on public property must be removed. The Rebbe of Riminov, who visited communities composed of immigrants from South America and from France in Florida, gave an unequivocal order for Jews to leave and go to Israel, saying that a civil war will break out in the US. The Rebbe said: “Leave as long as you still can. The situation will get worse and it will be difficult to move from one state to the other, after World War II the survivors came and asked why Gedolei Yisroel and Hasidic leaders did not instruct the Jews of Europe to leave in time and immigrate to Israel or the United States before the war broke out? The truth must be told: they said and how they said, they begged Jews, please flee from the burning ground, but part of the decree was that they did not listen. “Today,” said the Rebbe of Riminov, “Listen to me carefully dear Jews, whoever can get up and move to the Holy Land should get up and do so as soon as it is still possible, this includes large parts of South America and most of Europe. “The US too will be a place of danger in the war and it is still too early to point out which state within the United States will survive, but many parts will be destroyed and poisoned, even a civil war will break out in the United States and states will cut themselves off from the federal government. They US will not serve as a safe haven but survivors will remain here. Eretz Yisroel will be the safest place to survive the war, although there will terrible difficulties there as well. FROM http://www.bhol.co.il/article.aspx?id=81678 It was on the 9th of Av Moses sent out the spies to the Land of Israel and they brought back a bad report which resulted in people loosing faith and fearing to enter the land. On this same day years later the Babylonians destroyed the 1st Temple and Killed many of the Jewish Population and on this same day over 400 years later the Romans destroyed the 2nd Temple and Killed many of the Jewish Population. A Year later the Roman emporor decreed to build a pagan temple on the Temple mount. Jeremiah in Lamentations writes :The punishment of your iniquity is accomplished, O daughter of Zion; He will no more carry you away into exile; he will visit your iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will uncover your sins.” (4:22) Jeremiah said this before Edom- Rome destroyed the 2nd Temple. From this we see that after the destruction of the 2nd Temple by Edom and its exile, there will be no more exiles.He will no more carry you away into exile”. What we will see is the punishment of Edom for their cruelty :he will visit your iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will uncover your sins.” Rabbi Acha was walking with Rabbi Yehuda on the way. As they were walking, Rabbi Yehuda said it is written, “The virgin of Isreal is fallen; she shall no more rise” (Amos 5:2). I came to Rabbi Shimon with a darkened face. He said to me, from the look on your face what is in your heart is seen. I said to him, indeed my mouth and heart speak the same. He said to me, speak up. I said to him, it is written, “The virgin of Isreal is fallen; she shall no more rise.” So if a man who is angry with his wife and she goes away, she will never go back to him. If so, woe to the children who are exiled with her. He said to me, is what the friends said about this not sufficient to you? I said, I have heard what they say, and it is graceful. But my mind is not yet clear about it. He said to me, woe to the generation where there are no shepherds, and the flock wanders and goes without knowing whither, neither right nor left. Assuredly this verse needs to be familiar, and everything is revealed to those who look through the way of the Torah in a true way. Come and see: For all the exiles of Isreal, He set a time and limit to them all. God set a limit to the time period of all the exiles of the Jews, except the last. Concerning the first exile of the Hebrews. The Egyptian exile had been foretold to Abraham at the famous Covenant Between the Pieces (Genesis 15:13). “And God said to Avram: You must surely know that your offspring will sojourn in a foreign land; they will enslave them and hurt them for four-hundred years.” Ultimately, the Egyptians went “above and beyond the call of duty” in their fulfillment of “they will enslave and hurt them.” – “They embittered their lives with strenuous work (Shemos/Exodus 1:14). In the end, the Jews were in Egypt for only 210 years. It was the intensity of their subjugation that facilitated their premature emancipation. Jeremiah prophesied the 70-year exile of Babylon, the first temple exile. (Jeremiah 25:1) In them all, they turned to the Holy One, blessed be He, and the virgin of Israel, returned to her place in the time decreed. On the last exile, it is not so, for she will not return as in the times of the other exiles. This verse teaches this, for it is written, “The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise” and not written, ‘is fallen; I shall no more raise her’. There is an allegory of a king who was angry with the queen and cast her away from her palace for a certain time. At the appointed time, the queen immediately returned and came before the king. It happened so once, twice, thrice. On the last time, she went far away from the king’s palace and the king cast her from his palace for a long time. The king said, This time is different than other times. She will not come to me but I shall go together with all the retinue of my palace and seek her. When he reached her, he saw her lying in the dust. Who has ever seen the glory of the queen at that time and the entreaties of the king before her? Eventually the king held her in his hands, raised her and brought her to his palace and swore to her that he would never separate from her again, nor stay away from her. The Holy One, blessed be He, will do likewise. Whenever the Community of Isreal was in exile, when the time came, she returned and came before the King. But in this exile, the Holy One, blessed be He, Himself will hold her hands, raise her, reconcile Himself to her and bring her to His palace. Come and see: It is indeed so as written, “The virgin of Isreal is fallen; she shall no more rise” BY HERSELF. Therefore, it is written, “On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen” (Amos 9:11). She will no more rise as in other times, but I shall raise her, SHE WILL NOT RISE OF HERSELF. This is why it is written, “On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen.” I will raise up the tabernacle of David. What is the tabernacle of David? It is the virgin of Isreal “that is fallen,” as in the words: “is fallen.” It is to the glory of the virgin of Isreal and to her praise THAT SHE WILL NO MORE RISE OF HERSELF, BUT THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, WILL RAISE HER. I have learned this at that time. Rabbi Yehuda said, Surely you have persuaded me and it agrees with me. This is the explanation of this matter. This agrees with another explanation, which I have heard but forgotten, but now I have regained it. We learned what Rabbi Yosi said that the Holy One, blessed be He, will proclaim about the Community of Isreal saying, “Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem” (Isaiah 52:2); namely, like one holding his friend’s hand, saying, Shake yourself and rise. So will the Holy One, blessed be He, hold her and say, Shake yourself, arise. Rabbi Acha said to him: All the retinue of the King’s palace started also TO SPEAK TO HER in this language: “Arise, shine; for your light is come” (Isaiah 60:1), for the King is here. Surely then, when the King makes peace with her, it is her glory and the joy of everyone. On every occasion, she came before the King and rose before Him, as written, “And she came into the king’s presence, and stood before the king” (I Kings 1:28). This time it is not so, but the King will come to her and placate her and return her to His palace. Hence, it is written, “Behold, your king comes to you” (Zecharyah 9:9) and not you to him. He “comes to you” to pacify you and to raise you. He comes to you to perfect you in everything and He comes to you to raise you to His palace and join you in a CONSTANT everlasting union, as written, “And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness” (Hosea 2:22). This is referring to the ultimate redemption. As preparation to bring the messianic era closer and to reveal the positive qualities and joy that are latent in these Three Weeks. It  is a very good custom to  conclude   Torah works you learning in these 3 weeks, especially the 9 days of Av and have a  “siyyum” (celebration one makes when completing reading a book) These should be held on each of the Nine Days, including Shabbat.

“These activities will hasten the transformation of these days into days of celebration, when with true and complete joy we shall proceed together with Moshiach, to the Holy Land, in the true and ultimate Redemption


The Bible and Astrology

UPDATED Sept 9th, 2014

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” (1:14)

An apparent endorsement of astrology,

God places the sun, moon, and stars in the firmament so that they can be used “for signs”.

Abraham was born in the city of Ur in Babylonia in the year 1948 from Creation (circa 1800 BCE). He was the son of Terach, an idol merchant.

The night before Abram was born, King Nimrod’s astrologers were gathered at Terah’s house. Looking out into the night sky, they read in the constellation of the stars that the newly born child was to become the chief and the father of a mighty nation.

From his early childhood, Abraham questioned the faith of his father and sought the truth. He came to believe that the entire universe was the work of a single Creator GOD and he began to teach this belief to others.

Abram had watched the sun and the moon and the stars coming and going, each in its own time. He had noticed the sun giving way to the moon, despite its apparent divine power, and the moon giving place to the sun in the morning.

And so Abraham reasoned that there must be a power above and beyond all the visible forces of nature, an entity Who had created them, and Who regulated and controlled them at all times. Behind the limited power of all nature, young Abraham perceived the unlimited and timeless existence of God.

Then GOD made Himself known to Abraham and taught him the right way of living. Abraham came to KNOW that there is one God, the creator Who is in control of everything but he could not understand what God was all about until He appeared to him by prophesy. From this time on the Hebrew know of and believed in prophesy.

And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”Genesis Chp 15/5.

It is known that our forefather Abraham’s knowledge of astrology attracted all the kings of East and West to consult with him daily. Abraham was first the  most competent  astrologer, at that time that  God let him to live under the zodiacal system.  On page 83 of Josephus_ Antiquities 1:166-168, it is written “ The Egyptians were addicted to a variety of different customs and disparaged one another’s practices and were consequently at enmity with one another, Abraham conferred with each party and, exposing the arguments which they adduced in favour of their particular views, demonstrated that they were idle and contained nothing true. Thus gaining their admiration at these meetings as a man of extreme sagacity, gifted not only with high intelligence but with power to convince his hearers on any subject which he undertook to teach, he introduced them to arithmetic and transmitted to them the laws of astronomy. For before the coming of Abraham the Egyptians were ignorant of these sciences, which thus traveled from the Chaldaeans into Egypt, whence they passed to the Greeks.”

Abraham foresaw in the stars that he should not have any descendants, but GOD said to Abraham, saying you shell not look it too the wisdom of the stars, but in to the secrete wisdom of my name, there you will find out the future.

Abraham left the influence of the stars, since he become blessed to be above the zodiac impact. Abraham the Astrologer foresaw in the stars that he should not have any sons in his destiny, Abraham told God what he predicted about his descendants, than God took him out and told Abraham look at the stars and try to count them, as much stars are in the sky as much will be your descendants, from now you (Abraham) are above the influence of the zodiac system.

When God revealed Himself to Abraham, one of the first things that He told him was that his fate, and that of his descendants, transcended the influence of the constellations.Therefore, Abraham should not be concerned with astrological predictions.

Abraham was called the Ivri (lit. “the transcendent one”), as he was the first to be able to go beyond  the astrological influence  transcending and directing it.

God taught Abraham the secrets of His Divine names, and how to manipulate the Alf Bet characters, since that point in time, Abraham was a prophet  receiving  his knowledge as a direct communication with the God, By knowing God’s names secrets and powers, strength and might and how to work with these. He was given permission.

Abraham the books “Safer Yetzera” “The Book of Creation”, this book outlines the influence not only of the stars and the constellations familiar to Western Astrology. In the book also is a way to be a partner with God in the work of the providence of creation, by influencing astrology its self. The forces it bestows.  This book is written like a book of codes, and those codes are the secrets of the time and space, all the hidden secrets of the universe.

How ever although Abraham changed his way ( since he was not under the influence of the zodiacal system), a great respect to Astrology still remains..

To understand the power of the stars properly, we should explore them from the Torah’s perspective. The Hebrew word mazal refers to the unique spiritual forces that influence natural phenomena great and small.

Our Sages teach, “There is no blade of grass in the world below that does not have a spiritual life-force (mazal) above striking it and telling it to grow”. Another definition of mazal is constellation, or more specifically, the spiritual influences associated with the signs of the Zodiac.

Though Abraham was expert in astrology and used it to determine that he was destined to remain childless. God, however, had other plans, and blessed him with offspring as numerous as the sand and.. ..stars!. Thus instead of Abraham conforming to his mazal (astrological influence), G- d made his mazal conform to him. God channeled higher energies to him through visiting him on Passover, sending him to the Holy Land, and changing his name.

Changes in time, space, and soul affect one’s mazal. Weddings are often set for Tuesday, a day of good mazal. Also, when people move into a new home, the traditional blessing is “when you change your residency, you change your mazal, for good and blessing” To improve their mazal, seriously ill people will add a name.

None of this is superstitious, idolatrous, or occult. All those things are both foolish and forbidden by Torah. What we are doing is acknowledging that spiritual forces are at the beck and call of the Creator just as physical forces are. The God has his ways in which he has set his world to function and it is good to know them. Much of the story of the Exodus from Egypt is based on Astrology. 

During the period of the Exodus from Egypt, the astrological sign dominating the era was Aries the ram. This is why a lamb, related to the ram was the Paschal sacrifice. The lamb was the main God of the Era to the Egyptians and so the Hebrews killed it in the month of its greatest dominance, Aries the ram dominates the Hebrew month of Nisson. The month of Passover. This “mazal” dominated events for 2,000 years, from about the time of Avraham until the time of the destruction of the Second Temple. This was a time of severe judgment, for Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, who rules over blood. The epoch of Taurus the bull is what preceded the epoch of Aries. According to the astrologers, it was during the epoch of Taurus that Adam first walked the earth. The Erev Rav therefore considered this to be an auspicious sign. Thus, when they chose an image that they wished to represent GOD, they took the image that they thought was the highest and most powerful image. They could not conceive that GOD was above images and astrology.

God places the sun, moon, and stars in the firmament so that they can be used “for signs”

The Bible is full of this

There are influences also of sub categories of time as day, the 50th Jubilee year, 7th Sabbath year, years, months, weeks, hours. All connected with time revolves around one concept yhv’h, which has 12 permutations. The 12 Borders are its 12 permutations, 12 hours day and night, 12 months. 12 “simple letters”. At the 4 equanox of the year a sound arises from the 4 corners of the world through which the other side is stirred up. It also blocks the flow of light from on high. This is because the voice above cannot meet the voice below. As the left side come between the 2. This interposing sound is that of war, evil forces. Only Yushua ben Nun (Joshua) could hear this sound as it comes from the evil power that blemishes the moon. Yoshua was from the aspect of the moon so could hear it, while Moses was from the sun so he couldn’t.

The general Idea is that time is a fluid contimuam that we need to work with the Divine influxes of Holiness when they come like the Sabbath and Biblical Holidays and we need to fill our hours, days  and years with Holiness by our thoughts speech and actions.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” (1:14)

In Kabbalah  there are described two distinct concepts of time: the time of the lower world (zman tachton) and the time of the higher worlds (zman elyon). Lower time “flows”, with the past gone and the future yet to come. Higher time is eternal: past, present and future co-exist simultaneously.

The theory of relativity describes a four-dimensional space-time continuum, with three dimensions of space and one of time. The time dimension in the space-time continuum shares basic properties with the Higher time of Kabbalah . In classical thermodynamics, time is a unidirectional arrow that shares basic properties with the Lower time of Kabbalah.

One aspect of the war between the Jews and the Greeks, that ended with the Jewish victory celebrated in Hanukah, was about the meaning of time. For the Greeks time was a sequence of events, or its measurement. For the Jews, time is the injection of Divine providence into space.

The Kabbalah teachs that time originates from two simultaneous rhythms: “Mati lo mati” (Reaching down and not reaching down) a movement of Divine energy from the higher realms to the lower realms and back, and “ratzo va’ shov”, the movement of the soul from the lower to the higher realms, and back.

Space was created first, and time was “drawn” into space. In general, space embodies our ordinary reality, and time “informs” space. Divine providence shapes reality (space) through the dimension of time.

At the level of the soul and human behavior, time has critical importance for our actions. Kohelet (King Solomon’s book Ecclesiastes) teaches that there is a time for everything. The two most important collective sins of the Jewish people, the eating from the tree of Knowledge and the building of the golden calf, happened because of an inability to wait for the right time. The all-important process of rectification, teshuvah (repentance), bridges Lower time with Higher time. True repentance shifts our actions from Lower to the Higher time, where past, present and future co-exist. This is the mechanism whereby teshuvah can physically transform a past transgression into a good deed, and darkness into light.

After GOD told Avraham that his decedents shall be as the stars of the sky its said that he had Faith in GOD and it was counted for him as Righteousness. This contains an important lesson. As the mitler Rebbe said peace unto him, Emuna (faith) is the Yesod (foundation-gateway of energy) of every Mitzvah. Or as the Maharall of Prague explains in Givurot GOD that it is a person’s faith which sustains him in all his endeavors. Or as we can learn out from our verse ” He had faith in Yhv”h and it was counted to him as Righteousness”. The Zohar tells us that sedek (Righteousness) is Yesod (foundation-gateway of energy). Yesod being as a gate allowing varying degrees of revelation. The degree is determined by the extent of ones emuna . It is through this that we can be as the Malbim understands the Jewish people ”a mighty force”. Meaning for the revelation of GOD’s light in the world. The Yesod is where the stars interact in what is called astrology. We are taught The 248 limbs of the king (bones) are part of the sefirot “yosher”, above nature, above astrology dictated by the stars.1Certain aspects of time are established by the planets , stars and constellations. There influence is described in astrology. The stars and planets physical bodies dress the sefirot of Atzilut. Yesod is the most hidden part of the body. Becouse of this its work is hidden, and called rekia. In it are the stars and constellations. The Chassadim of the 5 fingers of the hand can touch in the Yesod arousing with in it.2 The influence of time exists but time is what we make of it. Yisrael can rise above the celestial influence of astrology, or fall beneath its benefit from sin. The arrangement of astrology (mazel) is according to the Divine service of Yisrael. Especially according to their alignment with the kingship of GOD on RoshHashanah. The 70 nations nullify, God forbid, nullify the nanhagot (divine providence) of Yisrael measure for measure (through Yisrael’s errors and lackings). Flow of הכל אדון upon the creations is according to the arrangement of the stars and mazolot (constellations). Yisrael is above this level of Divine supervision by their Unity with GOD throught the will of GOD in the Torah.3

Being as Avraham foresaw when seeing the heifer, goat and ram were divided in half when a thick darkness fell, a smoking furnace and a torch of fire passed between them dividing them. The smoke and fire being emissaries of the Shechinah. The darkness and fire being the same which was revealed at Sinai. This act of dividing the 2 carcasses is a pact demonstrating that 2 parties are a one. Through the cloud, smoke and fire. The Chuchmah of  GOD’s Torah. At Sinai there was cloud, smoke and fire as its written :

These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice which was not heard again. And he wrote them in two tablets of stone, and delivered them to me.” (deut 19:5)


And Mount Sinai was altogether in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount trembled greatly.”(ex18:19)

We also see a covenant made in a cloud after the flood as its written :

I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth.” ( 13:9Gen)

We also see the  the cloud, smoke and fire  as GOD’s force in the Desert as its written :

And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night” (ex 21:13)

It was these same forces that protected Yisrael and led the Egyptians to destruction as its written:

And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these; so that the one came not near the other all the night. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked to the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and brought confusion to the army of the Egyptians,”(20-24:14Ex)

We also see the mystery of  the cloud, smoke and fire  as GOD’s force in :

And I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came from the north, a great cloud, and a fire flaring up, and a brightness was around it, out of its midst, as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of its midst came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. And everyone had four faces, and everyone had four wings.”  (Ezek 4-6:1)

This is the Mystery of the Markava (chariot). The deepest of secrets.

Only because of this oneness created through our covenant with GOD are we compared to the stars  through which GOD guides mazel the providence of creation. So too, each of us continue to take part in the creation which is continual. It is up to us whether Mashiach will come to us because of our great suffering in wars, or He will show his glory miraculously to the world without Yisrael needing to suffer at all.

A way of revealing this oneness revealing the shechinah hastening the Mashiach’s arrival is shown by Melchizedek king of Shalem who brought forth bread and wine and then blessed Avraham in the name of GOD maker of the Heaven and earth. This is similar to what we do every Shobot when we have bread on our table and we make a blessing on wine in Kidush in the name of GOD remembering the work of creation. The future is set in motion with Avraham’s decedents promised the land of Israel, and their nature as said before will be a mighty force. While the decedents of Yishmoyal (the Arab states) are given their blessing  ” And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him” (16:12). This makes it clear that our Arab neighbors are not a people that GOD has blessed with the quality of being a cooperative, brotherly, understanding, compassionate people of peace. But their nature is quite the opposite. Violence being a major role of theirs in the world. It is from this understanding that we should deal with them. If he is blessed by GOD to be a  maniac can we hate what GOD has intended him to be ?. Should we hate the mentally ill if their disposition is violent ?. Or should they be cured of their mental illness. One thought should never be fooled by Yishmoyal’s facade it he talks as a peaceful people. It is clear that our Arab neighbors are not  people that GOD has blessed with the quality of being a cooperative, brotherly, understanding, compassionate people of peace. But their nature is quite the opposite. Violence being a major role of theirs in the world. It is from this understanding that we should deal with them. But violence is best avoided we should seek peace first. Violence is only a last resort.

As GOD said to Avraham ”I will give of you to the nations”. The Hamak Hadavar explains this as meaning that you will be a teacher of wisdom to the nations. Concerning the words           ” Kings shall come from you” the Hamak Hadavar explains Kings will come from the decedents of Avraham who will suppress the idolatry of the nations” May we see this completely realized with the arrival of the King know as Mashiach quickly in our days !

HERE COMES THE SUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
March 22, 2009, 9:48 am
Filed under: Astrology, calendar, redemption messiah, Renewal, TIME | Tags: , ,

UPDATED July 4th 2016

In the Biblical calendar system, a thirteenth month is added in 7 out of every 19 years in order to align the lunar cycle with the solar cycle. Here, the thirteenth lunar month makes the twelve original solar ones into an system that coexists with its solar “mate”.

Once every 28 years, the sun returns to the same place, same time of day and same day of the week as at the moment of its creation. Every twenty-eight years unique occasion arises: the moment at which the sun returns to the spot it occupied in the heavens at the moment of its creation, on the Fourth Day (the days were not literal 24 hour periods, obviously as before the 4th “day” there was not yet the Sun in the sky). This confluence of events, a restaging of the heavens as they were at the beginning of time, is not a moment to be overlooked. So the ancient sages bid us to celebrate this re-enactment of the creation of the sun every 28 years. Given that the the sun returns to its original place in the heavens at the precise time and day of its creation, this is an opportunity to see the world, and ourselves, as created again. This means the world becomes a new place with new opportunities. The sun’s return back to its original position that it began from during the first week in creation contains the power of renewal, and therefore, of redemption. Acknowledging the various cycles of the earth bring new awareness for the environment and the whole world.

The next solar celebration marking this event, called Birkat Hahammah (the blessing of the sun), will occur on Wednesday morning, April 8, 2009. At Sunset on April 8, 2009 we begin the first Seder for Passover. Though this is a coincidence, it opens the door for the myriad ways to connect the freedoms offered by the Sun’s energy and the Exodus story.

This celebration will mark the 206th cycle of the sun’s full return to its time and place at creation.
“The sun at its turning point.” In its apparent motion in the ecliptic, the sun has four ‘turning points’ which mark the beginnings of the four respective seasons. These points are generically referred to as the 2 Equinox and 2 solstices. They are: the two equinoctial points when the sun crosses the equator at the beginning of spring and autumn respectively, and ‘turns’ from one side of the equator to the other; and the two solstices, when the sun is at its maximum distance, or declination, from the equator, at one or other side of it. Of summer and winter respectively, and instead of progressively increasing its declination it ‘turns’ to decrease it progressively. Originally, the moment selected for this celebration was the spring equinox. But, you might ask, if the equinox occurs in late March (around March 21), why do we celebrate it in early April? While the answer is a bit complex, the short explanation is that the original annual calculations were based on the Julian calendar which counted the year as having 365.25 days. The true solar year, however, is closer to 365.242199. While that might not seem like a big difference, over a thousand years these minutes add up to a variance of 7.81 days. The Biblical calendar is a solar/lunar calendar which does take into consideration this variance.

Occurrences of The blessing of the sun

Occurrences in the last 120 years:

the blessing of the sun will occur next on

  • Wednesday, April 8, 2009 (14 Nisan 5769)
  • Wednesday, April 8, 2037 (23 Nisan 5797)
  • Wednesday, April 8, 2065 (2 Nisan 5825)
  • Wednesday, April 8, 2093 (12 Nisan 5853)
  • Wednesday, April 9, 2121 (21 Nisan 5881)

Note: Because the dates for assume a 365.25-day solar year and the Julian calendar also assumes a 365.25-day solar year, the blessing of the sun will always fall on March 25 in the Julian calendar. While the blessing of the sun usually occurs in the Biblical lunar month of Nissan, this is not always the case; it will occur on 29 Adar II (April 10th) in the year 2233. As the Biblical calendar is a solar/lunar calendar.

Only once in 532 years does the cycle begin on the same day of the month as it did at Creation, on 14th.

The author of Meir Enei Chachamim, wrote in his book in 1925 that there are only three times in the 6,000 years of Biblical history, when the blessing of the sun falls on 14 Nisan. These are:

1. Prior to being redeemed from Egypt. the blessing of the sun prior to being redeemed from Egypt was Nisan 14, 2437 and on Nisan 15, 2448 at midnight Israel left Egypt.The day before passover, is the day that we slaughtered the god of the Egyptians (a lamb).

2. Prior to the miracle of Purim. (the blessing of the sun prior to the miracle of Purim was Nisan 14, and Rashi writes that the following year, in Adar, the miracle occurred.) It is worth nothing that Mordechai and Esther were fasting on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of Nisan to prepare for Esther’s plea before King Achashverosh.

3. In the year 5769. It is worth nothing that 5769 is the eighth year, the year after the Sabbatical year.

About Nisan 14, 5769 (April 8, 2009), He writes,

“This will be last time ever and shortly afterwards, the redemption, MUST come.”

The Mekabel Avraham Azulai, the grandson of the Holy Chida HaKodesh, says in his book, that at the latest, in the year of 5769 since the creation of the world, the following two passages will be fulfilled:

Zechariah 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, says יהו”ה  of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered; and also I will cause their prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.

Leviticus 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.

In other words, the latest date possible that all impurities will cease in the world is at the end of 5769.


For this event God has told the Jews to sanctify the moment and His name with this blessing:

Blessed are You, אלהינו יהו”ה King of the world Who MAKES the work of creation !

Wisdom cries from the streets
December 1, 2008, 10:26 am
Filed under: Astrology, Creativity, wisdom-Chuchmah, Zohar



R. Shimon began with the verse, “Wisdoms cry aloud in the streets; she utters her voice in the wide places (Heb. rechovot)” (Mishlei 1:20). This verse contains a deep mystery. “Wisdoms,” They are the upper wisdom, and the lower wisdom that is included and dwells within the upper one. “Cry aloud in the streets”:

Come and behold: The upper Chochmah (wisdom) is the most concealed of all. It is not to be known or revealed, as it is written, “Man cannot know its price” (Iyov 28:13), for when it was diffused in order to illuminate, it shined in the secret of the world to come. The world to come was created from it, as we learned, that the world to come was created by the Letter Yud, in which Chochmah (wisdom) was covered. And they became one when everything was adorned with the secret of the world to come. Everything then is joyfully luminous; everything is silent, never heard outside.

This upper wisdom is as a flash of lightening that enters into the mind. It is a revelation of creativity, by which the world is created continually.It is not heard by all men as its written “never heard outside”.

It wanted to illuminate further. Thus, from this place came fire, water, and wind, as we have learned.

Wisdom can emanate and create in the physical elements. Yet this is supernatural quality as the thing we call “wisdom” here is not some thing of this world. Creativity is a power that is from beyond oneself.

And they became one voice that went out and was heard. From then on, it assumed the aspect of “out.” For inside it is silent, SOUNDLESS, never to be heard.

Until it has become revealed

Now that the secret is heard, it is called “out.” From here on, it behooves a man to improve his deeds and ask. “In the wideness (Heb. rechovot).” What is the meaning of wideness?

If one walks upright doing good he can reach this place of wideness of wisdom.

This is the firmament where all the stars are shining. It is a spring “whose waters fail not” (Isaiah 58:11), as it is written, “And a river went out of Eden to water the garden” (Genesis 2:10).

One working with the flow of this wisdom becomes a partner with the God in Creation of the world and its renewal. We should merit to this in God’s Mercy.

It is called ‘Rechovot‘. There “she utters her voice,” the upper and the lower. And all is one. For that reason Solomon said, “Prepare your work outside, and make it fit for yourself in the field” (Mishlei 24: 27). “Prepare…outside” MEANS, as it is written, “cry aloud in the streets,”. For here work, can be corrected. And this may be sought, as it is written, “For ask now of the days that are past…and from the one side of heaven to the other” (Devarim 4:32). “And make it fit for yourself in the field.” This is “a field which God has blessed” (Beresheet 27: 27). After learning the mystery of wisdom and perfecting himself therein, it is then written, “and afterwards build your house” (Mishlei 24: 27). A HOUSE IS a man’s soul, that he will then fix within his body, to become a whole man. Therefore, when Yitzchak dug and formed the well peacefully, he called that “peace” Rechovot. And all was properly done. Happy are the Righteous, whose deeds before the Holy One, blessed be He, are to preserve the world, as it is written, “For the upright shall dwell in the land” (Mishlei 2:21), which should be read as, ’cause to dwell’, as was already explained.

So put your house in order, so that wisdom may cry out to you. And you will be able to hear. Then from this creative inspiration you be able to build with understanding Peace.

Thanks givings – Triangle in Heaven of Jupiter, Venus, moon together on the new moon
November 28, 2008, 3:51 am
Filed under: Astrology, HEAVENS

It’s not just families that are getting together this Thanksgiving week. The three brightest objects in the night sky — Venus, Jupiter and a crescent moon — will crowd around each other for an unusual group shot.

Starting Thanksgiving evening, Jupiter and Venus will begin moving closer so that by Sunday and Monday, they will appear 2 degrees apart, which is about a finger width held out at arm’s length, said Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky and Telescope magazine. Then on Monday night, they will be joined by a crescent moon right next to them, he said.

Look in the southwestern sky around twilight — no telescope or binoculars needed. The show will even be visible in cities if it’s a clear night.

“It’ll be a head-turner,” MacRobert said. “This certainly is an unusual coincidence for the crescent moon to be right there in the days when they are going to be closest together.”

The moon is the brightest, closest and smallest of the three and is 252,000 miles away. Venus, the second brightest, closest and smallest, is 94 million miles away. And big Jupiter is 540 million miles away.

The three celestial objects come together from time to time, but often they are too close to the sun or unite at a time when they aren’t so visible. The next time the three will be as close and visible as this week will be Nov. 18, 2052, according to Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium.

But if you are willing to settle for two out of three — Venus and the crescent moon only — it will happen again on New Year’s Eve, MacRobert said.

Venus fosters love, lust, growth,cleanliness, mockery, laughter, philanthropy, gambling, excessive desire, pleasant conversation, shopping, drunkenness, joy, Dancing

Jupiter fosters life, increase in wellbeing, productivity, seeking and hoarding wealth, development, talk of justice and righteousness, affliction, justice, peace, faith, Humility, nobility of heart, freedom of the mind to be truthful, reliability, keeping covenants, excessive speech

These powers of Venus and Jupiter unite at this time so choose to embrace their good and Holy qualities.

Where is God in Astrology

Lights of the brain of chuchmah (Divine Wisdom) are called equinox (during each seasonal equinox a different aspect of Wisdom-creative inspiration enters the world). The four seasonal equinox are four aspects of chuchmah (Divine Wisdom), Chesed (giving), givurah (severity restriction) netzauch (endurance) and hod (ability to focus on subtleties) 1. Certain aspects of time are established by the planets , stars and constellations. They are conduits of the God’s guiding energies. There influence is described in astrology. The stars and planets physical bodies dress the sefirot (Divine powers) of Atzilut (world of Emination of energy). Yesod (gate way of energy) is the most hidden part of the body. Because of this its work is hidden, and called rekia (firmament). In it are the stars and constellations. The Chassadim (forces of Divine giving) of the 5 fingers of the hand can touch in the Yesod arousing with in it (our fingers can channel Divine energy, effecting astrologic influence).2 “Rekia” (firmament) are like “iggulim” (circular energy flow in nature), within them is “oar Yoshir” (supernatural influence changing nature).3 The planets are the first three sefirot of z’a  (Source of the Emotional soul) while the constellations are the six corners (shape emotional composure of humans).4 The 12 Mazolot (constellations) go out of the six corners. From Chesed to Malchut (actualized will of God in the earth), and from Malchut up to Chesed. Teferet (Harmony balance) and Malchut are concieled. These 6 corners are included in Teferet called “ ו“ (of the Divine name ( יהו”ה. These are the 6 “Hachel” (palace) in “hachel Ratzon” (palace of will)  which are the secret of Teferet (Balance, One draws this influence from here to the stars and planets) . Z’a of Atzilut decends on “hachel Ratzon”, but Z’a can’t decend until there is additional Ruach (drawn there) from Abba and Imma (Sources of emanation of Divine Wisdom and understanding). The 6 “Hachel” in “hachel Ratzon”  are a “reshimu” (tracing of energy) of the “mazolot” (constellations). “Hachel” (Palace) is Yesod  (gateway of energy) called “mazala” (Divine influence-providence). Mazel ” (Divine influence-providence) is Yesod (gateway of energy). Chesed Givurah Teferet and Netzauch Hod and Yesod descends in the Yesod from above to below. The 7 planets are the 7 sefirot themselves.5 Through the 7 planets of Asiyah (this physical world) all change comes to the world.6

The 7 planets are “aor Chozir” (returning light) Chesed to Malchut from Bina (Divine Understanding). They are included and traced in the Yesod.  The 12 “mazolot” receive from the sun. By this they receive lights of the 13 “dikna” (conduits) of Arich (Source of Divine will and Delight). All are included in “mazel”  ונק (one of the Divine names of Mercy).7 Each hour is ruled by one of the 12 “mazolot”. This is called “mazel” of the hour.The hours are in Malchut. The 12 hours are the 12 leters of the “meloy” (filling) of אדנ”י (This name is a vessel for the Energies). The “mazolot” (Constellations) which are in Yesod rule over them. “Mazel” (Divine influence-providence) guards the Yesod. All “Navua” goes in according to the “mazel” and hour. The accounting of hours in Malchut is called “din”. While hours in Yesod are called “rachamim” )Mercy). There are letters in the Rekia of heaven, in the Yesod of the “rekia” of Teferet. (These create “mazel”, by Meditation in the correct manner)9
