The Christ Star Disappears May 24, 2011
you again at the beginning of August. Sirius, the
brightest star in the heavens, is sinking very low on the west-southwest
horizon as Gemini begins. Sirius reaches its heliacal setting in San
Francisco May 23.
the heliacal setting: the last visible setting of a star in the
evening twilight. On the following evening, the star will pass
below the horizon while there is still too much sunlight for it
to be seen. Index

our spiritual Sun, which is sometimes referred to as the star
of the Christ, disappears
into the Suns glowing embrace and is no longer seen soon
after the celebration of the Wesak
Festival May 17. Its
as if the emanations of this star are aligning with our central
luminary to flood the solar system with the Christ consciousness
during the June
Festival of Humanity. (see
below) The "christening" of
humanity is inherent during this cycle with the outpouring
and inflowing energies.
setting times for Sirius vary in different locations and over time.
The heliacal setting for Sirius occurs, when the Sun is at the altitude
of 0 degrees on the horizon and Sirius is at the altitude of 7 degrees.
Sirius at an altitude of less 7 than degrees is hidden from our view
by the Suns light. See Heliacal
Rising & Setting of Sirius.

Stay tuned for these details and how Sirius relates to the Dog Days
of Summer in a future Night Sky.
the heliacal rising: the first visible, though brief, appearance
of a star on the eastern horizon before sunrise. On the previous
morning, sunlight made the star invisible. When the rising of a
star is spoken of, it is usually the heliacal rising that is meant.
In ancient Egypt, the heliacal rising of Sirius coincided with
the annual rising of the Nile at Memphis. Index

The Festival of Goodwill,
which occurs at the time of the Full Moon on Wednesday, June
1:14pm PDT (20:14 UT),
inaugurates the third of the Three
Major Planetary Festivals. The energies released at the Goodwill
Festival are forces of the Divine Will that affect the nations of the world.
These reconstructive energies can increase the aspect of national life or they
can increase the potency of the objectives of world unity, peace and progress.
With the keynotes of goodwill and "humanity, aspiring to God," this festival
is also observed as the Festival of the Spirit of Humanity, the Christ Festival,
the Festival of Unification and World

Journey Toward Its Central Stars!

unparalleled picture of the Milky Way's heart, stars are seen ablaze
the galaxy’s center. Wavelengths of infrared light were used
to penetrate the interstellar dust clouds that block our view of
the Milky Way.
After 16 years
of tracking the motions of 28 stars circling the galactic heart,
dedicated European astronomers have gathered the best evidence
yet that black holes exist and we have a super massive one at the
center of our galaxy.
Just as swirling
leaves caught in a gust of wind can provide clues about air currents,
so the stars' movements reveal information about forces at work
at the galactic centre.
observations show that the stars orbit a central concentration
of mass four
million times greater than that of the Sun … The galaxy's
central mass, long suspected of being a giant black hole, is
known as ‘Sagittarius A star’.
were also able to measure with great accuracy how far the Earth
is from the centre of the galaxy - a distance of 27,000 light
The 1992-2008 European
Southern Observatory study used the 3.5 metre New
Technology Telescope and the Very
Large Telescope - (an array of four 8.2 metre telescopes)
for their observations. The NNT and VLT operate from the Atacama
desert in Chile. See the ESO
Press Release 12/10/08 for additional information.
would our Milky Way Galaxy look like with its bright central bulging
heart, if we werent stuck inside and could see through the
opaque dust with our normal vision? Nobody knows for sure. Milky
Way Illustrated and Barred
Spiral Milky Way, however, are
two good guesses based
on many different types of observations. 6/3/08
findings show two major arms and two minor arms, not 4 major
arms. In addition the stars and material of our galaxy, rather
than neatly circling the galactic center as previous maps assumed,
they are surprisingly tracing an elliptical orbit. A 180-foot poster,
the largest picture of the Milky Way was unveiled 6/3/08. See

Annual Festival in the Heavens
The Heart of our Galaxy Blesses the Earth
festival is as old as the earth itself. At the time of the
solstice full moon a special festival is held in the spirit realms,
a ceremony at which Christ the Sun comes among His disciples
and pours a special blessing, a tremendous outpouring of love
upon the earth, which is light and truth and beauty, which is
in fact spiritual food. Grace

Gemini with each Goodwill Festival there is a festival in the heavens.
It occurs as the Full Moon enters the white ether of the Milky Way.
white ether is the level of consciousness where all souls can hold
communion with the Son of God, the Cosmic Christ. White

the place of reunion, of true kinship, the place of cosmic consciousness.
It is a place within the galactic magnetic field. It is from here
that we receive an exceptional spiritual outpouring into our hearts
from the spiritual
Sun, Sirius. This galactic magnetic field carries this blessing
to ALL on Earth during this time. Its highest effect is world unity. Audio

Milky Way is widest in Sagittarius and Scorpius because the
great bulging central hub, the heart of our galaxy, also known as
center, is in this direction.
the Galactic Center surges like a Roman candle of infrared energy.
Emanations of infrared energy (IFR) blast down upon us and perform
two primary functions on our awareness.
IFR opens up the subconscious mind. This opening asks us to release
and forget emotional trauma.... Second, IFR blasts open the root
chakra in the energy system. This chakra releases the old, regenerates
our energy, and lifts us off our duffs with renewed inspiration
and a sense of real progress.
Galactic Center acts like a satellite dish, directing divinely
inspired information straight to the potentially receptive gray
matter of our brains. If you believe in God, this might be the
voice you hear. Regardless, within this connection you have the
ability to pull down wild information which you would otherwise
have no way of knowing. Phil
