In the coming weeks I will be posting a series of articles from my travel blog, which I wrote during my recent trip to Europe.
The blogs are a collection of spiritual adventures, pilgrimages to sacred places and accounts of my personal odyssey into self-realization. I will be your guide to sacred sites like Stone Henge in the United Kingdom and the Oracle of Delphi at Temple of Apollo in Greece.
I was very excited that my journey began under one of the most rare and powerful aspects in astrology, namely the Grand Sextile, or Star of David. The ancients associated this unique alignment of six planets with the birth and anointing of a king. This rare alignment of the planets occurred on July 29th, 2013. Seven of the ten planets were involved to create six sextiles, three oppositions and two Grand Trines!
The six planets involved are all in the Water and Earth signs, which is believed to present a rare opportunity for planetary healing and harmonizing of the physical world with the spiritual realm. Some believe this to have been a moment of global soul alignment. In Kaballah the Star of David embodies the synchronization of Earth and Water, feminine and masculine, as well as humanity and the Divine.
According to kabbalastrology.wordpress.com it represents “the balance between our efforts in prayer, reaching up to the divine realms, and intuition and embodiment, receiving the information we need to step into the divine plan.”
My astrological chart for the month of my trip also talked of turning outward, new adventures, travel for personal fulfillment, leaps of faith, philosophical expansion, higher consciousness and even the possibility of prophetic visions. So, fasten your seatbelt… it will be an interesting ride!
