A ‘second sun’ continues to baffle scientists as Astronomy Observatory WebCams, along with NASA’s own satellite photos, are recording this epic, never before seen occurrence. Several people have also captured this beautiful double sun in the sky with their own cameras, submitting them to media outlets across the country.
Not a great deal of planetary movement this week, although on Sunday Mars does move into enthusiastic, positive Sagittarius.
The Sun is now halfway through methodical, meticulous, fussy, scrupulous Virgo, with a very detailed and perfectionist outlook.
The Moon starts the week in emotional, responsive, sensitive Pisces, with a Full Moon Tuesday, making us prone to possible over-reactions. On Wednesday it moves into active, excitable, impulsive Aries. On Saturday it moves into defensive, possessive, security conscious Taurus, finishing the week there.
Mercury is now settled in diplomatic, peace-loving, harmonious Libra, causing some indecision at times.
Venus is now settled in idealistic, reticent, picky, curious Virgo.
Mars remains in irrational, jealous, over-reactive, Scorpio, just until Saturday, when it moves into challenging, extrovert, outspoken Sagittarius.
Jupiter is now approximately one third of the way through benevolent, extrovert, positive, expansive Leo, staying there for several months making us benevolent and kind-hearted.
Saturn remains in responsible, shrewd, strong-willed Scorpio, until the end of 2014. It is now traveling Direct, enabling self expansion in some respects.
Uranus remains in assertive, blunt, energetic, self-willed Aries, for several years, and can make us individualistic and rebellious, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us, or help us see things differently. Uranus is currently travelling Retrograde until shortly before Christmas, helping us come up with ingenious ideas, with a need to use them creatively.
Neptune remains in sensitive, intuitive Pisces for the foreseeable future, and helps us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, and build understanding, in a wide variety of ways, but also indicates a need to remain realistic. Neptune is now traveling Retrograde until Mid December, indicating boundaries between reality and illusion may blur at times, causing possible confusion, with a need to look at people and situations realistically.
Pluto remains in Capricorn for quite a few years, so is a very long term influence, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. Pluto travels Retrograde until late September, with a relentless search for inner truth, furthering our self knowledge approached the right way.

That fire is responsible for your digestion, your metabolim and your intelligence. When the fire is disturbed, it causes inflammatory responses in the body and anger in the mind.
We could say that all of human health is dependent on the health of this fire within your organism. It can either burn you, or it can make you as bright as the sun.
Just as the sun emits a radiance, when the human being is filled with life-force, illumination and love, the magnetic field emits a radiance. This radiance gives supreme clarity, luster of the eyes and skin, warmth of the heart, and a powerful healing presence.
It is Time to activate your radiance … to be experiential and thoroughly transformed.
(or there about for different parts of the world go to http://astro.unl.edu/classaction/animations/ancientastro/heliacalrisingsim.html to calculate for your part of the world — e.g., in Dandridge Tennessee, Sirius rises on July 31,2014)
… the star Sirius rises before our sun, it is a helical rising issuing a declaration that the ‘ATLANTEAN, EGYPTIAN, and SIRIAN NEW YEAR’ has begun.
The heliacal rising of a star occurs when it first becomes visible above the eastern horizon, for a single moment just before sunrise. Each day after the heliacal rising, the star will rise slightly earlier and remain visible for longer before the light from the rising sun makes it disappear. The same star will reappear in the eastern sky at dawn approximately one year after its previous heliacal rising. Because the heliacal rising depends on the observation of the object, its exact timing can be dependent on weather conditions.
Sirius rising is a doorway of unparalleled opportunity to swim forward on the stellar surge of light that precedes the daylight. Sirius has been honored since ancient times. In Atlantis, the mysteries were created on information received from the Sirian Star Masters. After the third fall of Atlantis, the Sirian mysteries spread into ancient Egypt. As early as 3000 BC the Egyptians started celebrating the helical rising of the star Sirius declaring this the New Year as the Nile flooded its banks in the time of the great lion, in the month of Leo.
Sirius is the home of Cosmic Christ for this entire Galaxy. It has ‘always’ been a spiritual prototype for Earth. As the rays from Sirius arc onto earth via the sun, we have another opportunity to activate the Cosmic Christ seed within. The little solar jewels that are dormant DNA encodings, wait for stellar emanations to open sealed cellular files. When Sirius rises in your part of the world go out before dawn and look to the east. Whether cloudy or dark seen or unseen, the star Sirius will rise to meet you energetically. It is in the quiet times in-between words and thoughts that you will find the key that unlocks what has been unseen until now. Go outside, face east, and allow the pre-dawn energies to enter you. Ask to be released of all that no longer serves you and be filled in completion with that which serves your highest soul path and spiritual evolution.
Visualize the emanations and radiance of Sirius coming forth into your earth Heart from your star heart. Sirius gives you the gift of the ‘cycles of Time’, reconnecting all sacred spaces through time and space, on and off planet. The tone of creation sounds in every cell of your body on earth and cycles through all 144 levels of your light. Announcing to long lost parts of earth to arise from a deep sleep into full alertness. Without the help of humans, the light from deep space, far off galaxies and event horizons would just continue to travel endlessly without ever stopping. Light needs you as much as you need light; it is a symbiotic relationship, sacredly arranged.
As the entirety of the sun is reflected in every glistening droplet of water, so is the entirety of life reflected in your individual lifetime.
And in each of your years, you pass through the entirety of your life.
And in every day of your life you are born, live your life through, and pass on from this world.
All of life is found in your hands, today.
Mohs Hardness of 7 with a trigonal crystal structure.
Aqua Aura is quartz crystal that has been treated with pure gold solution and when electrical current is applied in a special machine, fuses the gold molecules to the surface of the quartz; taking 12 hours to heat the quartz to 1600F while setting a vacuum equal to 2 earth atmospheres, then letting chemically purified gold vapors into the chamber when the temperature and vacuum are correct. This bonds the gold to the lattice of the crystal, forming a permanent bond to the surface of the quartz and giving it an electric blue color.
The process was awarded the United States Patent No. 6997014 on Feb 14, 2006. The process was invented by Steven F. Starcke, Ronald H. Kearnes and Keven E. Bennet. While the patent might have been given in 2006, this material has been produced by this method for dozens of years prior.
It is the exact same process that is used to coat steel balls to be used as bearings. Additional elements can be used to treat quartz, such as indium, titanium and copper. The coloring of this treatment is only on the surface, so all faceted and polished material you find has been treated after it has been made originally. Often, quartz of lesser quality, with fractures and weak spots, will break apart during the coating process. A little known fact is that the Aqua aura treatment can be used to reveal twinning in quartz crystals that would otherwise go undetected.
Metaphysically Aqua Aura has the qualities of both quartz and gold. Quartz has a harmonizing effect and aligns the chakra system. Gold imparts a more assertive energy to the wearer and the blue color helps stimulate the throat chakra, improving communications abilities through speaking.
Aqua Aura is an outstanding tool for people wishing to increase their psychic skills and awareness, it assists with meditation, telepathy, and psychic healing by bringing more intense energy to the effort. It is particularly helpful for distance spiritual energy healing because of its ability to send energy.
Aqua Aura can enhance communications of all kinds. It can also assist in conscious awareness of one’s own motivations and patterns. Aqua Aura is said to attract success and prosperity, even possibly wealth, and it is also used for protection from psychic attacks.
This wonderful quartz can assist one in plumbing one’s emotional depths and heights while simultaneously retaining inner peace. It can also be an aid to those who wish to become conscious channels for spiritual wisdom, clearing and opening the pathways of inter dimensional communication.
More Healing Information:

Although Crystal Quartz has an enlightening effect on all the chakras, Aqua Aura is highly stimulating to the 5th, or Throat Chakra, enhancing one’s ability to communicate inner truth, at it also has a soothing and relaxing effect on the emotional body.
It can be used to soothe anger, cool feverishness, and release stress, as it is strongly connected to the element of water, and it is therefore a stones for enhancing one’s access to the truth of the emotions and the portals of Spirit which are accessed through the emotions.
The Sun and the Moon
In the Hermetic philosophy, the Sun has always been a symbol of a certain aspect of consciousness as it radiates outwards of it’s self. The sun can only shine and give outwards its potent rays of light and warmth. It cannot receive or take; it is not its nature, for it is only half and a part of the Oneness of being. The other aspect of consciousness is symbolized in the Moon as the feminine receptive nature of the unconscious mind. By herself she is dark and cold and is as a passive polarity compared to the active polarity of the Sun. Alchemically the Lunar nature is one of gathering inwards and nurturing, while the nature of the Sun is one of outpouring and expansive. The Sun, which is consciousness, and which is in itself a divine energy, sees himself in her reflection, while her darkness as the unconscious is warmed and made to shine with radiance. The Sun sees his reflection in the Moon. As Fulcanelli has said, “the moon secretly absorbs the rays of the Sun and nurtures them in her bosom”.
Metaphysically, the inner process of meditation and initiation is functioning on the very same principles. The conscious mind directing thought and concentration is as the Sun. The unconscious aspect of our being is as the moon and functions on a lunar level. The unconscious psychic energies within us must be warmed and kindled by the solar essence. This is that metaphysical insemination which the philosophers speak of when they say that “consciousness must inseminate the unconscious”. It is this act that brings to birth a third aspect of consciousness in our being, the luminous subjective self as the inner divine child. When one practices meditation, one can enter into the fertile feminine unconscious where one’s birthing of the inner divine child lies as the emerging inner self. One must first make the conscious effort of his or her active will power and concentration and act upon the passive energies of the unconscious. In turn the receptive and passive energies of the unconscious, nurtures and matures the divine seed of the Sun, or our “Gold”, as the alchemists like to call it. In this way, this feminine aspect becomes the mother of divinity in that she brings forth the Son of the Sun. This is that mystical love affair, that passion and divine union of the male and female seed that the philosophers speak of which begets the Philosopher’s Stone. The Sun and the moon as the Father and the Mother, now see themselves in the divine Son as the divine man. This is the true union of the bride and groom, the re-union of Adam and Eve and the mystical wedding of the alchemists.
As the King, so too our Alchemical Queen has her part in the alchemical process. It is a most beautiful event to behold the Sun through the feminine reflection as the Lunar Astral Light. Especially when she is pregnant and full. She is our most beautiful Diana. The alchemists have always spoken highly of her and expressed her beauty in most beautiful allegorical ways as the Lilly of the Valley and the White Rose of the whitening stage of the alchemical process. It is the “beholding of the most beautiful body of Diana stripped of all her terrestriality”. Thus the wife of the Sun becomes the very mother of our own rebirth, where consciousness becomes conscious of consciousness and we realises the source of a greater light coming from the Sun within us as the Father. But we never forget our mother the moon and her gentle nurturing. In this symbolism and allegory we see the Christian mystery of the Holy Virgin mother conceived of the father, the Sun, and who gave birth to the divine child who becomes our inner master, and saviour, as our regenerated soul and consciousness.

Truly, all must be born again of Sun and of truth, for your body basks in the sunlight of the Earthly Mother, and your spirit basks in the sunlight of truth of the Heavenly Father. ~ Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ—I will praise Thy works with songs of Thanksgiving continually, from period to period, in the circuits of the day, and in its fixed order; with the coming of light from its source and at the turn of evening and the outgoing of light, at the outgoing of darkness and the coming in of day, continually, in all the generations of time. ~The Thanksgiving Psalms: The Dead Sea Scrolls—A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another and all creatures of God. Love is the fulfillment of the Law. Love IS God and God IS love. Whoso loveth not, knoweth not God. ~ Jesus, Gospel of the Holy Twelve
