Starting November 5th is Diwali, popularly known as the festival of lights. It is an important five-day festival in Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism. Every year, Diwali occurs between mid-October and mid-November and is celebrated for five days according to the lunisolar Hindu Calendar. The most significant meaning of Diwali is "the awareness of the inner light." Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (diyas) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil.
Hindus associate Diwali with the return of Sri Ram (The 7th avatar of Vishnu) after 14 years of Vanvas (banishment.) To welcome his return, candles were lit in rows of 20.
OM SRI RAM JAI RAM JAI JAI RAM
Lord Kalki will be the great incarnation (10th avatar) of Vishnu, who will come to end the present age of darkness and destruction known as Kali Yuga.
All Saints' Day and Diwali involves the lighting of candles.
Below are videos of All Saints' Day (Filmed at Powazki cemetery in Warsaw, Poland.) and Diwali (in India.)
Happy All Saints' Day and Diwali! May God fulfill all your wishes in wealth, health & happiness in your life.

The Sacred Feminine (Part 1)
If you have read The Da Vinci Code, According to Dan Brown, Mary Magdalene was the "holy grail" that carried Jesus' blood, and Mary Magdalene was Jesus' intended leader of the Christian church. It was the patriarchal disciples and early church that "demoted" Mary, denied the sacred feminine, and instituted a patriarchal caricature of Jesus' intention for Christianity.
The Sun, which matches up with the journey Jesus takes during his ministry, represents the masculine. The triangle is a symbol for God and the Holy Trinity. The Sun is the life giving energy and for that reason it is a symbol of God. If you have read The All Seeing Eye blog entry, you will read about the All Seeing-Eye inside the triangle.
The Moon, which conception and births were charted by the filling and waning of the moon, represents the feminine. The inverted triangle is an esoteric symbol of the divine feminine.
Put the two together and what do you get? The Star of David. Non-Jewish Kabbalah (also called Christian or Hermetic Kabbalah) interprets the hexagram to mean the divine union of male and female energy, where the male is represented by the upper triangle and the female by the lower one. According to "The Da Vinci Code", the Star of David is a symbol for the unity of man and woman.
Ladies, when going through your menstrual cycle, do you check the moonlight?
The word "menstruation" is etymologically related to "moon". The terms "menstruation" and "menses" are derived from the Latin mensis (month), which in turn relates to the Greek mene (moon) and to the roots of the English words month and moon- reflecting the fact that the moon's period of revolution around the earth (27.32 days) is similar to that of the human menstrual cycle. The synodical lunar month, the period between two new moons (or full moons), is 29.53 days long.
The Hindu Moon god Soma (or Chandra) married the 28 daughters of the Rishi Daksha.
The 28 moon lodges or 28 lunar mansions (as they are often called in English) are divided into four clusters, with each cluster made up of seven constellations. The four clusters represent the four cardinal directions (north, south, east, west). Each cluster is associated with one of Four Celestial Emblems (turtle, red bird, dragon, white tiger), a Buddhist guardian deity (the Four Heavenly Kings), a season, a color, and numerous other attributes.
There are 27 Nakshatras - Lunar mansions.
The Sanskrit word Nakshatra means "that which does not decay." The 27 Nakshatras represent consciousness and each Nakshatra represents a particular quality of consciousness. The Nakshatras permeate the whole universe and influence the quality of the Rashi in which they are positioned.
As seen from the earth, the moon passes through this circle of the 27 Nakshatras in about 27 days. Thus it takes the moon about one day to pass through one Nakshatra.
Being that the moon's period of revolution around the earth is 27.32 days, this is why there are 27-28 lunar mansions or houses. When the moon is full, it takes about fourteen days to empty (new moon) and then about fourteen days to return to full.
The menstrual cycle begins with the first day of bleeding, which is counted as day 1. Only 10 to 15% of women have cycles that are exactly 28 days. The lining of the uterus (endometrium) is thick with fluids and nutrients designed to nourish an embryo. If no egg has been fertilized, estrogen and progesterone
levels are low. As a result, the top layers of the endometrium are shed, and menstrual bleeding occurs.
In the next 13-14 days (The follicular phase), growth or maturation of the egg is taking place inside the follicle, a small sac where the egg matures. Ovulation occurs around day 14 of the cycle, when the egg is released (The egg can be fertilized for only up to about 12 hours after its release.) In the final days (days 14-28) is the time from when the egg is released (ovulation) until the first day of menstruation.
Just like the moon phases, the uterus is as if "full" on day 1 of menstruation, and in 14 days is "new" ready for a new egg to ovulate, and in the last remaining 14 days, returns to "full" and returns to day 1 of menstruation, repeating the cycle, just as the moon repeats its celestial cycle, in 28 days.
During December 21, 2012 is when a new age will be born. This will be the beginning of a new sun or the "Sixth Sun" according to the Mexicas (Aztecs). In the book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, as well as The Da Vinci Code, they concluded that the legendary Holy Grail is simultaneously the womb of Mary Magdalene and the sacred royal bloodline she gave birth to.
On December 21, 2012, is when a rare galactic alignment will occur: the Solstice sun will align with the Dark Rift in the Milky Way and form a Cosmic Cross. If you have read The All Seeing-Eye blog entry, you will read "As Jesus died on the cross, the soldier pierced the Sacred Heart of Jesus with his lance, and his heart has spewed blood. Blood represents life physically and spiritually. For Christians, it is Jesus' blood that was shed that we may have life. Sounds like the center of the galaxy I wrote about. The center of the galaxy spewing out Itz, a kind of supernatural power that permeates the life-giving fluids of all things. And during December 21, 2012, the galactic center (that spews Itz) will be the center of the cosmic cross, just as Jesus' heart (that shed blood so we may have life) was the center of the Crucifix. "
"According to some traditions the Holy Grail was the cup from which Jesus and his disciples drank at the Last Supper. According to other traditions, it was the cup in which Joseph of Arimathea caught Jesus' blood as he hung on the cross." According to The Da Vinci Code and other texts, Mary Magdalene was the "holy grail" that carried Jesus' blood.
Below is an art image of Jesus on the cross.
During December 21, 2012, the Solstice sun will align with the Dark Rift in the Milky Way and form a Cosmic Cross. As you look at the image, Jesus Christ is wearing a crown of thorns and his heart (side of chest) has been pierced by a lance and is spewing blood. Jesus' crown of thorns symbolizes the sun's corona. Our Sun will be aligned with the Dark Rift in the Milky Way, as Jesus' crown of thorns were aligned with the horizontal part of the cross. The galactic center (The Heart of the Galaxy) will be vertically aligned with the Solstice sun as Jesus Heart was positioned on the cross.
For your information, Ra (pronounced as Rah, and sometimes as Ray) is an ancient Egyptian sun god. By the fifth dynasty he became a major deity in ancient Egyptian religion. Jesus' crown of thorns are symbolic of the sun's rays, and in English, Ray is derived from Ra. Seth (Set, Sutekh): The god of storms and violence in ancient Egyptian religion, murdered his brother Osiris. After Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, Horus fought with Seth for the throne of Egypt. In this battle, Horus lost one of his eyes. The eye was restored to him and it became a symbol of protection for the ancient Egyptians. After this battle, Horus was chosen to be the ruler of the world of the living. Osiris was the setting sun, Horus the rising sun. When the sun sets, there is darkness, and when the sun rises, there is light. According to this legend, Osiris (the setting sun) is murdered by Set. Notice that the word sunset (Sun-Set) contains the word set. Horus (the rising sun) defeats Set, and becomes ruler. Thus, we may interpret this, that when the sun sets, darkness overrules, and when the sun rises, light takes over.
The Hindu God Lord Krishna is the eight avatar of Vishnu and the embodiment of love and divine joy. Kali Yuga (the Dark Age we are currently living in) began at midnight (00:00) on 18 February 3102 BCE. This date is also considered by many Hindus to be the day that Krishna left earth to return to his abode. According to the Vishnu Purana, Kali is a negative manifestation of Vishnu who perpetually operates in this world as a cause of destruction, along with his evil extended family. It is said that towards the end of this yuga, Lord Kalki (the tenth and final avatar of Vishnu) will return riding on a white horse to do battle with Kali and his dark forces.
When comparing Lord Krishna to Osiris, we see that as Lord Krishna has left earth to return to his adobe, a dark age has begun, just as when Osiris was murdered, Set (the god of storms and violence) has taken over; and when comparing Lord Kalki to Horus, Lord Kalki will do battle with Kali and his dark forces, just as Horus, battled Set and his dark forces.
In The Legend of Luna, We may compare Jesus to Osiris, where Jesus was crucified by Herod and his dark forces, and Judah to Horus, where Judah will battle Emperor Narcaster and his dark forces to avenge his father's death.
I recommend reading The All Seeing-Eye blog entry, as I will be copying and pasting lots of text from it to further interpret this analogy, and is a good read to better understand this analogy. All paragraphs in quotations in this blog entry signify that the text is copied from The All Seeing Eye blog entry.
"On December 21, 2012 is when a rare piece of astronomical alignment takes place. On that day, our sun will be precisely at a crossroads between Earth and the exact center of the Milky Way galaxy -- the galactic equator. The Mayans called this 'the Sacred Tree or the Tree of Life.' Also, on this date, the tail of the "shadow" serpent descending the northern steps of the pyramid at Chichen-Itza (the Mayan Pyramid of Kukulkan) will be pointing exactly towards the Pleiades star cluster which will be located straight up and over the structure.
Emerging from this tree, or star alignment, comes a serpent (DNA) rope with an enlightened being named Nine (9, Closure) Winds (Wormholes, Spirals, StarGates, SG, Sacred Geometry). Nine Winds is Quetzalcoatl riding upon a blessed substance the Mayans called itz (literally 'the blessed substance') apparently spewing from it. In Mayan belief a serpent rope emerges from the center of the galaxy, symbolized by an 8-rayed or 8-spoked wheel. Cosmic sap oozes from this world tree or cosmic cross. Itz is a kind of supernatural power that permeates the life-giving fluids of all things, both animate and inanimate. It may be found in blood, tears, milk, semen, rain, tree sap, honey, and even candle wax."
"For Christians, it is Jesus' blood that was shed that we may have life."
Galactic centers have supermassive black holes. Our sun (a yellow dwarf star) orbits the galactic center, and on December 21, 2012, this will be the time when our sun will align with the galactic center and dark rift of The Milky Way and form a cosmic cross. Stars are being born in the galaxy's center.
Earlier in this blog entry, I wrote about a New Sun being born "The Sixth Sun". According to some books, Mary Magdalene was the "holy grail" that carried Jesus' blood. If you have read The Legacy, you will read about a New Son being born of a virgin mother, Maria, and His Father being Yeshua, who represents the sun. December 21, 2012 is when a new age and New Sun is born.
The Angel on Ice Toast has subtle meaning in The Legend of Luna (a script I am currently working on, which is quite a subtle work altogether.) One being that it represents a seed that will be planted on the moon (which represents the feminine) that will give birth to a new age. A new age of peace, prosperity, and an end to famine (Aquarius.)
Now that you have read about this analogy of Jesus Christ and the Cosmic Cross that will be formed on December 21, 2012 and the analogy of menstruation and the moon's phases, I will now write about The Holy Grail, Mary Magdalene, The Sacred Feminine, The Galactic Center, and The Great Mother.
According to the Maya, this unique astronomical event links us directly to the heart of the Great Mother, the term used by ancient people for the Galactic Center. Being that the galactic center is the birth place of the Milky Way galaxy (our galaxy,) the galactic center is the womb of the Milky Way mother.
The Holy Grail is traditionally symbolized as a chalice containing the blood of Jesus. Beyond the dark ages to about 3500 BC, a chalice or a cup was the longest-standing symbol of the female.
Mary Magdalene is mentioned in the lists of Jesus' female companions that appear in Mark, Matthew, and Luke.
Some authors have claimed that the Holy Grail was never a literal cup at all. Instead, the repository of the blood of Jesus Christ was actually Mary Magdalene, Jesus' wife who was pregnant with his child at the time of the crucifixion. She was taken to southern France by Joseph of Arimathea. According to some traditions, it was the cup in which Joseph of Arimathea caught Jesus' blood as he hung on the cross. According to various accounts, Joseph of Arimathea traveled to England where he founded the first Christian Church, was the protector of the Holy Grail, and became an ancestor of Lancelot or even of King Arthur himself. The most popular legends associated with Joseph of Arimathea involve his role as protector of the Holy Grail. Others say that Jesus appeared to Joseph in a vision and entrusted the cup to him personally. If The Holy Grail is simultaneously the womb of Mary Magdalene and the sacred royal bloodline she gave birth to, can this be a code that Joseph of Arimathea was the male caretaker (protector) of Mary Magdalene and Jesus' children?
Now that I've described a little in regards to the Holy Grail and Mary Magdelene, I will now be preparing an analogy of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and The Holy Grail with The Cosmic Cross that will be formed on December 21, 2012, the galactic center, the sun and the moon.
