Rochus Hess Comet ISON (click on pic for biggie size)
Comets fascinate me.
Chinese astronomers have records on comets, including observations of Halley’s Comet, going back to at least 240 BC. Often thought to be portents of doom and gloom, pheasant or broom stars signify CHANGE. Differing types of comets were said to deliver different omens.
Comets are MESSENGERS from the outer reaches of space.
Most comets are believed to originate from the Oort Cloud far beyond the orbit of Pluto.
Halley’s comet is a “periodic” comet and returns to Earth’s vicinity about every 75 years. Hale-Bopp will not return for another 4,200 years. Comet Hyakutake will not return for another 14,000 years. WoW.
Did you know there are right now five comets visible in binoculars or small telescopes that can be seen before dawn from the northern hemisphere ?
Read here for maps, science geekout.
That is amazing – 5 ?! !
A quick look at the numerology of 5 here.
Ruled by Mercury, 5 signals surprises and opportunities.
Also think, pentagram and the orbit of Venus.
A trillion comets.
Comet ISON passed within 2 degrees of Fixed Star Spica yesterday, then it travels with Mercury until the 27th (see chart) until reaching perihelion (point closest to the Sun) on the 28th. Fixed star Spica is a brilliant white binary star in the constellation of Virgo. Spica symbolizes wheat in the Virgin’s left hand.
This comet delivers messages of change that are likely influenced by Spica.

X-1 Solar Flare today as well.
Note: Pointed away from earth.
X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms.
We are in the solar maximum stage, polarities on the Sun will flip soon.
Exciting, yah !?
I wrote all about SOLARIFIC info, astrology/science in a previous post here.
Current earth & space info can be found daily on the sidebar links.
I read this Edgar Cayce solar info awhile back, found it very interesting.
(reading 5751-1) Cayce made the astonishing observation that the phenomenon of “sunspots” was inextricably connected to instability and turmoil upon the planet earth itself. In fact, the readings state that whenever war, strife, and turmoil occurred in the affairs of humankind, sunspots would occur as a natural consequence. More here.
Curious what you make of a whopping 5 comets visible in what is our time of dark winter in the north ? Sunspots & humans ?
I’ll be giving it some thought & consulting the oracle, will return.
