Blue MoonSun in LeoMoon in-1

July 31st, 2015 ~ Blue Moons happen when we have two full moons in the same month and the same season! The second full moon in the month is then called a Blue Moon! This occurs about once a year or two so people have coined the term “once in a blue moon.” 🌝

This is also the time of New Year’s in the Mayan, 13 Moon, and Egyptian calendars which are based on the helical rising of the star Sirius. So this is a time when we receive the energies not only of our Sun but the star Sirius which is 25 times bigger than 20 times brighter than our Sun!

It is believed that many benevolent teachers and guides came from Sirius including Isis and Osiris, as well as Jesua/Jesus and Mary Magdelene! The rising of Sirius is said to open a portal that allows new codes and information that will be the template for the year ahead!

Add to this the current Venus retrograde on Regulus which expert astrologer Divine Harmony says is heralding a “change of the guard” from a Yang ego centered patriarchy to one of a Yin centered feminine leadership that will bring with it more compassion, cooperation, and concern for the good of ALL.

So it’s quite an exciting time! With the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius we are asked to look at how we can fully allow our light and gifts to shine in a way that serves all of Humanity and to clean out anything that may be lurking in the shadows blocking our potential!

This Blue Moon occurs at 12:43 am HAST on July 31st so we will be celebrating it @blackswantemple as the moon is waxing into its fullness on the evening of Thurs, July 30th in Maui!

Venus Retrograde on Regulus ~ A Changing of the Guard


by Divine Harmony

venus retrograde is upon us! on saturday july 25th- just 7 days away from when i am posting this blog- venus stations retrograde at 0’46 virgo (exact at 2:29am PDT).

“venus is the Goddess of Love, beauty, value, self-worth, abundance and material prosperity. when she goes retrograde for approximately 6 weeks it is akin to innana’s journey into the underworld. it’s a time of stripping away of what is on the surface so that we can get to the depth and core of issues in our lives related to Love, money, worth and value. ultimately it is a time to reevaluate what means the most to us- within our selves, in our material lives, in our relationships and more.”

while venus is retrograde we can best use her energy of introspection and reflection without taking definitive action just yet. it is customarily not a time to start or end new things (new relationships, new financial agreements, etc…)- although it can be a time of starting anew or ending something that is old, karmic and has been around for a while (years, maybe lifetimes).

technically we are already in the shadow of venus retrograde as she first crossed the degree she will back track to (14’23 leo) on the summer solstice (june 21st). since then she has made several of the aspects she will make a total of three times due to her retrograde journey. most notable of these is her activation of the uranus/chiron semisextile (exact for the first time june 28th-30th) and her activation of the jupiter/saturn square (exact for the first time july 1st-13th). it is interesting to note that her harmonious aspects to uranus and jupiter (trine and conjunction respectively) bode well for sudden shifts, expansion, growth and positivity playing out in our love lives, relationships, finances and healing around self-worth! yet her aspects to chiron and saturn are tense (quincunx and square respectively)- which point to the need to address old wounds and pain as well as limitations and karmic situations in our lives with mastery, maturity and consciousness. the astrology with venus right now is not all Love and Light- there is shadow, pain and wounds to be addressed and we need to be willing to go into them and work through them to heal and ultimately resolve what hinders us from experiencing more Love, abundance and happiness in our lives. the only way out is through!

right now, as i write this blog, venus is at 29 leo and she will move into the first degree of virgo tomorrow (7/18). the cusp of the 29th degree of leo and the 1st degree of virgo is important as it is the cusp of shift from one era to another that the royal fixed star regulus just transited. for the last 2000 years regulus has been precessing through leo and in 2012 he just completed that journey and commenced his journey into virgo. as regulus is the royal fixed star of leadership, authority and power- his shift from leo to virgo heralds a changing of the guard so-to-speak when it comes to power and authority. i wrote a whole blog on this which is linked at the end of this article- but in short this heralds a shift of power from solar/hero/king/yang/ego-based consciousness (leo) to earthy/humble/yin/nature and service-based consciousness. as virgo is the sign of the virgin and the Divine Feminine- there is a shift of power moving into the hands of those who adhere to the more feminine qualities of leadership like receptivity, compassion and awareness of how we are all interconnected. we are moving away from power/over, power/under dynamics and working towards empowerment in a more round table style- where we are all seen as equal, valid and part of the body of life on earth (animals, plants, humans and all!). now this is a long term transit and it will take regulus 2000 years to go through all of virgo- so this is only just the beginning! yet having venus station on regulus is heralding this changing of the guard. to add to this jupiter will enter virgo on august 11th and he will energize the 1st degree of virgo for 2 weeks- so we have both benefic planets (venus as lesser benefic, jupiter as Greater Benefic) aligned with royal regulus right now. this is a call to arms to change the guard and move into a place of heart-centered power rather than ego-centered power, which has been the dominating factor of our patriarchal consciousness that has been with us the last 2000 years. this summer the Goddess is on the rise- and she is coming through both women and men as they align with a Higher Purpose that is not focused on personal gain, but on service to earth and healing of the planet. venus and jupiter on regulus in the next few months can be a call to remember who we are and why we are here- so pay attention!

with venus straddling the signs of leo and virgo- she will actually only spend about 13 days retrograde in virgo and the rest of her time will be spent in leo (approximately 30 days). virgo is the sign of service, health, organization, details, perfection, self-adjustments and integrity. venus retrograde in virgo is a time to look at these areas in our life- from the mundane routines to the work we do to the way we care for our health and well being- so that we can honestly self reflect and see what adjustments need to be made. where does our daily life need reorganization? where does our health and the way we eat or move through the days of our life need a shift? on the other hand, leo is a sign of passion, self-expression, romance, creativity and children (inner child as well as outer children). when venus is retrograde in leo we are asked to look at our needs for love, respect and recognition in the world or from those we Love. looking at what is working or not working in regards to our relationship with our ego is also key when venus is retrograde in leo (the sun of the sun and the ego). as venus rules self-worth and self-Love- a key to keep in mind during the entire venus retrograde is that you cannot look for something outside of yourself that is not Sourced from within. if you are seeking Love from someone else to fill you up- you are never going to feel like you have received it. until we fully Love ourselves- Light, shadow and all- we cannot allow another to fully Love us, nor can we truly Love others fully. the coming 6 weeks of venus retrograde is a time to rethink and review our values and what means the most to us- in our love relationships, in our finances, in our material life and more. when we are not clear within we will attract all kinds of unclear situations without. but when we become clear within everything external to us will be seen not through a glass darkly but through a crystalline glass that reveals all.

of course this inner work takes time and i am not suggesting you can magically come into perfect self-Love in the next 6 weeks if you do enough work. what i am suggesting is there is a call to further your journey on this path- and anything outside of you that seems to be going awry right now (relationships, financial situations, etc…) are simply mirrors for you to look into and see what inner reality they are reflecting. once you become clear about where your work lies- then the next step is taking responsibility for where you are at and doing the work necessary to facilitate the healing or shift you are seeking!

over this next week as venus slows to a stop to station retrograde- there’s a decidedly neptunian vibe predominant. neptune is opposing juno- the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage- on the same day as venus stations. in addition neptune is opposite venus throughout the week by declination (called a contra parallel) and is also opposite by degree (it’s a wide aspect but it’s there). venus will not oppose neptune until october 18th, well after venus stations direct again (9/6) and is out of her backend shadow (10/9). yet as venus stations she is in opposition to neptune- which can bring an unclear, illusory, ungrounded and fantasy-based energy into the week, and subsequently into the venus’ retrograde journey. positive neptune aspects bring us into our Higher Heart- yet tense ones can create a desire to be in denial, avoid reality, turn to addictions, play the victim or the martyr, or even lose sight of reality all together. the Highest expression of neptune is the mystic but the lowest expression can reveal as the addict or psychotic. all three of these archetypes are immersed in the oceans of the Unconscious (something neptune rules)- yet the mystic seems to have a boat and oars or perhaps a map that guides him- while the addict and psychotic are simply drowning in the waters of the Unconscious. with so much neptune dominant- it is really important for us to use discernment and self-reflection right now. it’s also good to do grounding techniques and have friends you can bounce ideas off of to make sure you are not deluding or deceiving yourself. the desire to wear rose colored glasses and see what we want to see in ourselves, others or in situations in our lives (particularly involving finances or romantic relationships) can be high- and if we choose to not address the shadow right now it can bite us in the butt down the road big time.

this need to find balance between ideals and what is real, potential and what is manifesting right now is also mirrored by the jupiter/saturn square. jupiter squares a stationary direct saturn on 8/3- and venus triggers both of them three times between july and october. jupiter square saturn highlights the push pull between expansion and contraction, luck and hard work, dreams and reality. when you involve venus this translates into Love and money situations as well as our values and self-worth. if we are defaulting to too much to jupiter then we are tending towards excess, self-aggrandizement, over spending and not limiting or disciplining ourselves. if we are defaulting to too much to saturn then we are pessimistic, cynical, depressed and miserly or penny pinching. either one in excess will create all kinds of imbalances in financial situations or relationships. so the key is in working to find the middle point so that we are seeing reality clearly and dealing with it/addressing it (saturn) while at the same time staying open and willing to work towards what is possible so we can grow beyond our previous boundaries and perceived limitations. another way this may translate with venus/jupiter/saturn is knowing when to hold on and knowing when to let go.

of course with the uranus/chiron aspect also involved there is HUGE potential for profound healing and sudden shifts that take us from point A to point B on our current trajectory of evolution. the key will be our willingness to go there- to go into the places that scare us, face our own fears and limitations, take accountability for where we are in life and then rise up in integrity and mastery so that we can do what needs to be done so we can move forward.

it is traditionally advised to not get married during venus retrograde and to not spend money on big ticket items or invest big sums of money. just like it’s advised to not buy a new computer during mercury retrograde- because venus rules things of value, when she is retrograde we may buy something or get involved with someone that later we realize was not right for us. venus retrograde is also know for bringing past partners (from this life or past lives) back into our lives- either for closure and completion or perhaps for another go-around. it’s not a time to commit to anything or anyone though- it’s best to ride it out first and see where these karmic connections from the past begin to lead you. with the neptune vibe dominant right now you could be very misled- by yourself or by others. slow and steady wins the race- and honestly if you are looking for love outside of yourself so you can avoid doing the work within you will miss the boat on one of the most positive uses of venus retrograde: healing our relationship within and deepening into self-Love, self-value, self-respect and self-worth.

so take time in the coming 6 weeks to get clear on what you value, what you Love and what you want more of in your life! and then do what you need to do to release anything and everything else that does not support you in the direction you are seeking to move more deeply into. with venus retrograde- think quality, not quantity. your quality of life, relationships, material reality and more can be taken up a few notches this summer if you are willing to do the work!

Blessed “Day Out Of Time.” According to the Mayan Calendar which follows the moon cycles allowing for 13 months of 28 days with one extra day which EQUALS the same number of days as the awkwardly contrived Gregorian 52 week calendar! This one extra day is called the “day out of time” and falls on July 25th! The Day Out of Time is an official holiday in over 70 Brazilian cities! It’s a day that promotes themes of forgiveness, atonement, celebration of life and community! Dr. Emoto, the water messenger created the Global Water Appreciation Day on July 25 to coincide with the annual Day Out of Time, Peace through Culture festival for the purification and healing of the Planet! This was the perfect day to release the waters and offerings that we prayed over at last week’s New Moon Ceremony where we petitioned Yemaya back into the ocean! Yemaya is associated with Aphrodite and hence Venus who went retrograde today, as well as Isis! As we’ve mentioned earlier this week this is the time of the Heliacal rising of the Isis star Sirius and is considered Egyptian New Years!

sirius rising

July 26th, 2015, 8:00am Eygpt
Pssst! You! Yeah, you… are a passenger on a planet… on a blue-green planet that’s orbiting a golden star. And right now we are traveling through a part of our yearly orbit that people call, “the dog days of summer.” But… WHO is the dog? And what does he have to do with hot weather?

The dog, as it turns out, is the Dog Star, in the constellation Canis Major, one of the few constellations that actually looks like its name: a Big Dog. This is the brightest star in the constellation – and it’s the brightest star in all of our night sky. It’s called Sirius, and it means “scorching.” It’s the namesake of Harry Potter’s godfather, Sirius Black. And Sirius Black, as you may know, can manifest himself as a dog.

Imagine our little planet orbiting the sun. Imagine our little planet surrounded by billions of other suns so far away that they appear to us as twinkling little stars. Some of these stars are blocked from our view because they’re behind the sun. But they don’t stay behind it because we don’t stay still. As we orbit, certain stars pass behind the sun from our perspective, and certain other stars re-appear from behind the sun. Sirius is behind the sun in our summer. When it re-appears, it’s visible very close to the sun very briefly before the sun rises.

In ancient Egypt this Dog Star always re-appeared just before the annual flooding of the Nile, generated by rainstorms upstream. Without this flooding, Egypt’s soil was dry and lacking in the nutrients to feed her people. So, the Dog Star’s re-appearance gave people hope. Naturally, these Dog Days are hot because this is, after all, summer. But long ago folks didn’t understand why summer is hot. They figured that the heat was because the Dog Star was so close to the sun, in cahoots with it, adding its scorching rays to the sun’s heat: “the dog days of summer.”

Now we know that our earth is tilted. When our hemisphere is pointed toward the sun, we’re bathed in its radiation: summertime. The sun is called Sol in Latin, and Sol is the heart of our solar system – it’s the star of our show. Your heart and the area around it is called your solar plexus. And your solar plexus is like the sun that’s inside you. It’s the power that makes your heart beat, and it’s the warm, sunny, heart-felt radiance that allows you to light up the world with your smile and shine like a star. This inner sun of yours knows something that’s vital to your dignity, something that the sun up in the sky knows: I am not shining because the planets are out there applauding – or because they might applaud if I please them. I AM SHINING BECAUSE I AM A BALL OF FIRE.

This is Harriet Witt, your guide for this little ride on our passenger planet.

Here is some more information on the winged crop circle that appeared on July 25th, the Day out of Time and the eve of Sirius Rising!  Interesting!  Is it Horus, the Son of Isis and Osiris?  Is it Osiris who’s apparent birthday is July 25th?  Is it a Hopi Dancer or Quetzalcoatl or perhaps ALL?

The planet Earth indeed celebrates (each year) its birthday on July 26th, when our Sun enters the Constellation of Leo.

At this junction, the constellation of Leo aligns with the Pyramid complex at Giza. But that is not all. This only explains the Earth’s alignment with our solar Sun. However, there is another major alignment that occurs during this leonine period, that which is of unparalleled importance.

Star planet Sirius is the mother Higher Presence of Earth with Orion its father, or masculine energy parent. Now, Sirius is not just a Star System but is the “Great Central Sun” that serves as the Head Quarter of God’s Light; its distribution and course plotting throughout the entire Milky Way Galaxy; of which we are a small part. In this period of July end to August mid, Sirius aligns in a major way with our planet.

An extract from my Book – “The Voice of Silence” where this connection is explained in depth:

“Now coming back to Sirius; which is twenty times brighter than Earth’s Sun and over twice as huge as planet Earth; has the most significant connection and relationship with Earth and its human race than any other star system in our galaxy. Sirius is, in fact, the Higher Presence of our entire solar system, into which Earth and all its co-planets must ascend to gain ultimate freedom. Sirius is also known as the ‘Great Instructor of Mankind’, the ‘Source of Higher Mind’! Moreover, Earth is connected to Sirius through the ‘silver cord’ of Light that finally connects all light-forms to the Creator God. Earth shares a negative polarity with Sirius and is psychically influenced through three pivotal planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Saturn.”

Furthermore, the Earth receives its light from 2 planets: the golden light from our Sun and the blue light frequency from the blue planet Sirius. This is prototypical, Ray 2 and Ray 1, respectively.

However, the Ray 1 (blue light) that Earth receives is a major birthday gift, each year, for a crisp period of July 26th to August 12th. As I have scribed before, Ray 1 has never been anchored on earth afore. This is because it’s the Ray of the Will of God; which entails Unity Consciousness of One, wherein, duality is non-existent totally. As you all know by now – Free Will is the opposite of God’s Will. Our blueprint, and the blueprint of our planet primarily, is the contract of separation, based essentially / fundamentally/ wholly on the Principle of Dualistic Separation. So there is no way Ray 1 can be anchored on Earth. But, it is gifted in this way each year through a major Gateway Portal that opens between Sirius and Earth and, a pathway is laden between the two planets through which the Light of God’s Will is beamed upon us.

Now, for you to understand this you must know from where does this powerful blue light descend and, its significance. For which I return to an extract from the my Book – “The Voice of Silence” :

“Many millions of years ago, a cosmic insurgence had surfaced between the Light and Dark beings in our galaxy. This revolution had broken loose in the constellations of Lyra, Cancer, Gemini and Orion, as well as in many other lesser-known star groupings (constellations). At the very core of this battle were the Star League of the Pleiades, the Andromeda Confederation, the Lyra Light League and the Sirian star-nation. Eventually, the galactic fatalities caused by the rebellion had led to the formation of the “Galactic Federation of Light”, which is a governing and controlling union made up of physical and non-physical beings from various planetary civilizations in this galaxy, however without any hierarchical structure, with the divine purpose to essentially prevent dangerous uprisings that can affect the galactic neighbourhood. Their purview includes supervision of atomic and nuclear developments on Earth as well. Moreover, they act as Physical Angels needed to carry out the divine fate prophesied long ago for our Milky Way Galaxy.

“Furthermore, due to the repercussions of the battle between the varied constellations the beings from Lyra, with permission from the Galactic Federation of Light, migrated and colonized Sirius B and, in time, Sirius C and D. Of these, Sirius A star system is most sacred since it is the place where the “Great Blue Lodge of Creation” has chosen to enter the Milky Way Galaxy.

“The Great Blue Lodge is the holy place in which the sacred “Blue Light of Divine Creation” is anchored and subsequently illuminated to every part of Creation, from the heavenly hierarchies down to local planetary hierarchies. In the case of the Milky Way Galaxy, the spot chosen for the anchoring of this holy and divine Light was the Sirius star system. However, owing to the great energy of this Blue Light, the Sirius star system’s configuration, in its reading by Earth‘s scientists, appears rather ambiguous and dense. And consequently seems to defy the physics of its normal creation. However, the Sirius star system is not ‘exceedingly dense’ as it is made out to be, or appears to be. This seeming density is due to the energy exerted upon it by the Blue Light of Creation. From within this Light, Sirius sweeps up the great electric-energy and releases it to the multitude of solar systems all through the Milky Way.”

This Blue Light of God’s Creation, is the Zero-Point of energy from which all creation is created and manifested into different levels of reality. This is the blue Ray 1 of God’s Will, Wisdom, Power, and Protection.

The Sirius star planet houses four most important structures. One is, topmost in importance, the BLUE LODGE OF GOD’S LIGHT (Temple of God’s Blue Light, the Ray 1 of God’s Will), followed by the TEMPLE OF ILLUMINATION (which is the Temple of God’s second ray, the Ray 2 of God’s Light / Love / Illumination / Enlightenment/ Truth).


And thirdly THE GREAT WHITE LODGE OF SIRIUS (wherein are seated the Higher Lords of Karma for our entire galaxy), and herein also lie the HIGHER INSTITUTIONS OF LEARNING AND INITIATIONS (this is where the Sirian Master Teachers teach and initiate Sirian Adepts).

The Great White Lodge in Sirius

Master Jesus, Lord Buddha, Lord Kuthoomi, are, to name a few, Sirian Master Initiates of the Temple of Illumination of Ray 2 in Sirius. Whilst, Lord El Morya, Lord Manu, the Great Director of Authority (Chieftain Lord of Karma for earth), Lord Sanata Kumara, Thoth, Seshata, are the Blue Lodge Sirian Masters of Ray 1.

These are some of the most powerful Sirian Masters who descended upon our planet to help, guide, and teach humanity throughout Earth’s history and evolution.


An extract from the my Book – “The Voice of Silence” :
“Sirius has played a large role in the history of Earth and its human civilization, not just at its seeding stage, or during the settlements of Lemuria and Atlantis, but its influence and presence has been felt evidentially even during the Egyptian and Inca civilizations. The Sirians visited both the Egyptian and the Mayan societies and gave them much advanced astronomical and medical information. They helped to build the pyramidal network system that originates in Egypt and extends through the Mayan civilization to the rest of our planet. Moreover, they guided the construction of temples in Egypt and Peru along with the many tunnels and pathways to the inner Earth. In the future, they will be involved in establishing the new Golden Age on Earth.”

Now, just as Lord Buddha is the Logos of Earth; Sanata Kumara and Lady Venus are the Lord and Lady of Venus; Helios and Vesta are the Logos of our Solar System; Osiris and Isis are the Lord and Lady of Sirius.

Celia Fenn:  “It were the Sirians who first taught us about the “Christ Consciousness” that was embodied in the Golden Light of the Sun. The Gold Frequency was Divine Light and it carried the energy of Divine Love and Compassion. As Humanity opened themselves to receive more of the transmissions of the Divine Light and more of the Light Codes that would elevate consciousness, they embraced the Gold Light and activated the Light Body and Multi-dimensional consciousness. The first Sirian Avatars of the Christ Consciousness were Isis and her partner Osiris, who brought the Golden Light to Egypt. The second Sirian Avatars were Yeshua, known as Jesus, and his partner, Mary Magdalene. Together they embodied the Divine Masculine and Feminine frequencies of the Gold Frequency of the Christ Consciousness.

“The Blue Sun was Sirius itself, and it carried the Blue Frequency of that Star System also known as the “Blue Star”. This deep Blue Light carried the Codes of an advanced race of Light Beings who were in the service of the Divine Plan and the Evolution of the Galaxy and the Earth. The rising of the Blue Sun indicated another cycle of Light, Love and Support from the Sirian Master Teachers on the Path of Evolution. Following this event, those on the Earth could expect great blessings and abundance in their lives.”

Thus, the Blue Light from Sirius is the God Consciousness (Infinity Frequency) whilst the Golden Light from the Great Central Sun is the Christ Consciousness (33rd Degree of Ascension Frequency). Now, in this corridor of July 26 (2+6=8) up to August 12th, both Christ and God Consciousness is showered upon Earth and its human race as a great gift from the Source. So, those interested in awakening are supported and directed greatly by this gift. I also feel, or look upon, this Gateway Portal, as an opportunity for mankind to end its dualistic blueprint and enter a higher frequency of unity, wholeness, and completion, by adopting the Divine Plan of God.

An extract from my website (www.sangeetahanda.net):

“However, of all the star nations in our galaxy Sirius is most sacred, the place where the sacred ‘Great Blue Lodge of the Blue-Light of Divine Creation’ has been anchored. Lord Siraya, the Carrier of God’s Blue Light to all His Mansion Worlds, chose Sirius (B) as the place to enter this galaxy and establish the ‘Great Oracle Temple’ of Blue Light of Divine Creation to illuminate the Creator’s Light to all other star systems in the Milky Way Galaxy. This sacred Blue Lodge of Sirius is defended by the race of the ‘Lion people’ who are the settlers on Sirius (A) star system. This is the race of people who descended upon Earth to create and activate the Great Pyramid of Egypt and oversaw the design and architecture of all pyramids on Earth. They were headed by the Atlantean and Egyptian High Priest from Venus – ‘Thoth’, and by the High Priestess ‘Seshata’ who is a descendent of the ‘Feline Beings’, a race also from Sirius (A). The Lion Beings live in the ‘non-physical’ reality that transcends time and space; whereas the Feline Beings are of the physical dimension and live even amongst the human race on Earth. Whilst the Lion Beings were the architect or the blueprint designers of the pyramids, the actual builders were the Feline Beings who physically constructed the Great Pyramid. This is the multi-dimensional perspective of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Moreover, the Lion and Feline Beings are also members of the Galactic Federation of Light.”

The race inhabiting Sirius is the Lion Race and the Feline Race. Here I was shown how the frequency of the Sirius mother planet is one of “Lion Consciousness” – brave, daring, royal, noble, rich, abundant, patient, as well as a no-nonsense, loyal, strong yang energy; that which is neatly balanced by its co-inhabitant race of the Feline that which is totally yin energy of dark depth, mysterious, nubile, ever changing, and adapting. These are the shape-changers. The Lion Beings have never birthed on earth but have descended at important times that heralded either a renaissance awakening or seeding of structural energy such as – the Lion Beings were the architects of the Pyramid of Giza but it was physically beamed into matter manifest from the anti-matter by the assistance of the Feline Beings who have birthed on Earth and are present even now as the Sirian Beings on Earth. Thoth and Seshata, the Venusians who are the Sirian Initiates of the advanced race living in and out of Sirius, were the ones to initiate the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. They called upon the Lion Beings to design it and the Feline Beings to help physically structure it into reality. Once it was completed, the Lion Beings signed their presence (just as an artist signs his canvas with his name) by leaving their image at the front of the main pyramid – the Sphinx. The Sphinx is the Lion Being of Sirius. More than placing it there as a watchdog in protection, it is their Signature, the signature of the architects who designed it. It’s their way of reminding us as well that our bodies are of earth but our soul is from the stars. And I feel the mighty powerful individualized majestic royal Sphinx displays that so well!
So through the history of human evolution the Sirian Masters have descended to teach us the process of ascension, the science of ascension, the technology of the 33rd degree of ascension. The last of who walked in form amongst us were in the early period of the Egyptian Pharaohs with Thoth as the god of Khem (name of ancient Egypt) who introduced writing along with his partner Seshata who introduced language, as well as the medium of measurement and mathematics (necessary for the construction of the pyramid sacred holographic geometry), followed by the hugely famous Akhenaton and his much oblivious mysterious second wife Kiya (whose name and sign was obliterated by the demonic energy of Nefertiti). This last famous Pharaoh introduced the Principle of Oneness and one God and the worship of the Sun God – Aton, who is the I AM Presence of the Great Central Sun. He introduced and popularized the emblem of Sirius – the Ankh! Ankh is the Gematrian symbol of the Infinity Consciousness of the Creator God of All That Is. I have explained this in greater depth later in the article.

And at present, the Sirian Master Teachers are telling us that the golden frequency of Ray 2, from the Ra, is here for us to raise the vibration of our physical body to the Light Body of multi dimensionality, whereby we are then ready to nullify our original blueprint of duality forever and enter the Monadic Blueprint of Unity.

It is then, at this stage of advancement, that we can ingest the qualities of the blue Ray 1 and anchor the Creators Light in all its purity upon our radiant Earth, infinitely.

So, what makes this 8:8:8 so important over others? This time over, as Celia Fenn has very adeptly revealed: The constellation of Leo no longer aligns with the rising Sun as that time has now passed! But, the energy of the Lion is what is important at this vortex!

On July 26th the Gate from Sirius, in any case, will have opened allowing the highly coded Sirian Energies to permeate onto Earth and its humanity as it does each year. Then what is so special about this year? I knew something was not usual, regular, here. So as I opened myself to receiving the information I saw that this is the year of 8:8:8 (although it comes very 9 years and the next one is in 2024) that the mighty Lion Race representative – Sphinx – is going to be activated. But not just activated but revealed in its entirety and understood in its quintessence.

It is now time to know the true wholesome essence, significance, and meaning of the Sphinx! Some people think it should have been a dog instead or the original was tampered with and this new meaningless sculpture was created in its place. This is not true! This Sphinx is original, yes worn out with the nature’s currents and the capsule of time element. But the Sphinx cannot be changed by man nor tampered with, ever!

This mighty royal Lion Being of Sirius standing afore the Pyramid, in its full glory power and purity, is “the” LION CONSCIOUSNESS of Sirius! It is telling us it’s time for the LION CONSCIOUSNESS to make its presence known and anchored upon earth. For ascension beyond the 33rd degree of freedom we need to become the Lion Consciousness of Sirius. We need to ascend into the energies of the Lion Consciousness. Simply said – we need to release the Lion within us!

The royal Lion Sphinx has stood guard over this New Timeline for millenniums, but quietly! However, now with the 2015 888 he shall be activated and initiated (perhaps for the very first time of our 6th root race of the Egyptian Aryan civilization) and its official introduction to humanity shall commence with the coming of the Planetary NEW Year, July 26th, 2015. Which shall peak on 8th August – 8:8:8, and finally the Gateway Portal shall close on August 12th. This I feel is in readiment for the mega influx of New Energies of a totally different and much finer frequency that shall bombard Earth in its last 2 year tunnel corridor from September 13th (Solar Eclipse) to September 28th, the date of the Lunar Eclipse.

This Lions Gateway Portal is therefore so important for us, as we must now recognize the Sphinx, accept its energies, anchor and integrate them well into our bodies, activating our DNA and lifting us into our Golden Solar Diamond Light Bodies through the integration of the Lion Consciousness. It is not just the Christ Consciousness of the 33rd degree anymore but, the Lion Consciousness of the 144th degree.
Moreover, and in addition, on the 888, another ray shall bombard earth – Ray 4 of Diamond Light of Resurrection and Ascension. So this Lion’s Gate Portal shall usher in the amplification and powers of Ray One, Ray Two, and Ray Four – the Blue, the Golden, the Diamond Light!

So, on, or at, 8:8:8 ( at 8:00 am and at 8:00 pm Egyptian local time)be prepared to be piloted into the Zep-Tepi or the ‘place of zero-point’ for all creation, from where, and into which, all matter merges with anti-matter, to create a new Reality altogether. We shall embark onto the ‘Pathway to Sirius’ on this date. This Pathway to Sirius, which is like the highway that links Earth to Sirius resonates on the frequency of 7 and is composed of the Violet Fire of Transmutation and Purification.

The Voice of Silence – “The best time for connecting closely with the energies of Sirius is when the Moon is full in the House of Leo. The Leo Full Moon is the time for a close encounter of paranormal kind with the Sirian Forces.”
And this Full Moon of July 31st is no ordinary full moon but a Blue Moon further indicative of the Blue Planet – Sirius and its first time full throttle entry into earth and impact upon its inhabitants.

The Sirian Symbol

What is an Ankh? Ankh is the “Golden Key” that carries in it the Secret of Eternal Life. It signifies the descent of Spirit into Matter and holds the SECRET whereby Matter may ascend back into Spirit once again. The circle on top of the Ankh is symbolic of the Spirit (God) and the cross below is the archetype for duality or matter. The circle is representative of the feminine principle, or the Shakti (the womb), and the cross below reflects the Shivling, or masculine energy. Anyone who is in possession of the Golden Key is blessed with Immortality! As were the Pharaohs’ of Egypt, for each one held the Ankh in their left hand and when they wished to bless anyone with eternal life, they would hold the Ankh to their mouth – the Kiss of Life, or the Breath of Life – as it was mystified to be!

The Activation of the Sacred Ankh, the Initiation given by Thoth in the Emerald Tablets, is the elevation of one into the Divine Consciousness whereby one can then enter the 5th Dimension. And, choose to visit any realm in the 5th D, be it the Halls of Amenti, one’s Akashic Records, or the Shamballah.

Today, on earth, there are a few Sirian Adepts living but working quietly as the Light Holders, not teaching, not conspicuous, and isolated from the crowd however working ceaselessly with the Light and the Hierarchy to fulfill the Divine Plan of God! These Sirians will collect, individually however, on the Divine Miracle Spectacular Extraordinary date of 888 at the Pyramid of Giza. It’s a calling for all Sirian souls to attend this one in a lifetime occurrence at the station of their Home. There shall be a gathering of the Celestial Tribe as the Lords, Ladies, Ascended Masters, Sirian Master Teachers and Karmic Lords all meet at 8888 am and 8888 pm at the Sphinx. A Meta-Physical Sone Lumier event of star planet Sirius as the Sphinx gets activated, initiated, anchoring its Lion Consciousness upon Earth. We have been promoted from Christ Consciousness of 33rd Degree to the 144th Degree Lion Consciousness of Sirius, the Great Central Sun of the Milky Way Galaxy!

I would like to end this Message with an extract from my Book – “The Voice of Silence” co-scribed with Lord Sanat Kumara and Thoth:

“Now, when a resident of Sirius has peaked 13 million (remember 1+3= Earth‘s number 4) years of maturity in Sirius, he has the option to descend into the lower-dimensional planet Earth for 30 thousand years (4+3=7, the number of Sirius) before returning Home. Earth then serves as his testing ground to observe the 33 application of the wisdom he has acquired on Sirius for thirteen million years. You may wonder why millions of year’s growth is required to descend upon Earth. Well remember this is a planet of great suffering, torture, misery, greed, deceit, pain, and ugliness, and to such inconceivable depths and magnitude that it could easily (through the blink of an eye-lid) impel any God-loving man into becoming an instant murderer or criminal, capable of slaughter, butchery and criminal behaviour of the most monstrous and unimaginable heights. This is indeed a planet of mammoth sorrow and intolerable torture that compels the enlistment of only heroic souls, with courage and valour who, despite all odds would be able to recognize the illusion, the delusion, of duality and not be swallowed up, absorbed or consumed by its temptations. Instead, learn (through trial-and-error) to experience them objectively enough to be able to conquer them, overcome them, and be freed from them, in order to return Home successful.

“Souls that fail to attain this mastery within the stipulated period are then removed, or exiled, from Earth and sent onto tougher planets, farther away, for a million years more. Therefore, the 13 million years are an important investment for preparation of this journey into, what we would term as, ‘absolute hell’ for sure! These million years are spent in measured examinations, painstaking study, development of abilities toward good judgment, analytical intelligence, discriminatory and differentiation powers, in addition to attaining refined clarity, self-control of one‘s senses, and discipline of perfection and mastery.

“This training, if accurately attained, can therefore help the soul to withstand many an unexpected challenge that could otherwise surely prove to be fatal, to the very texture and fabric of any man‘s sensibilities. Especially, when faced head-on by the searing mouth of the serpents ensnare!

“Moreover, the advice rendered by the High Council of Sirius, to their citizens, before their descent to Earth quite eloquently summarizes the challenge before them: ― Pay attention, but observe with detachment what goes around you. Be centred, stilling the lower emotions. Be wary and look carefully about you, turning your focus away from the horror and towards beauty, love and the miracles that surround you in every moment of your life on Earth!

“And so, in this way, many million souls from Sirius departed from higher seats of wisdom and love energy onto lesser and denser energy-fields of the tricky planet.

“However, Sirius was not the only planet that sent its tribe to inhabit Earth, many other planets and planetary systems too participated in this extraordinary game-plan of extreme passion and excitement, laced with the treacherous and deceitful maze known as duality, riding the wave of forgetfulness of All That Is!

“Moreover, the Earth has a father parent known as the planet Orion. Orion, just like Sirius comprises of three major planetary systems that form the ‘Orion Constellation’ in our belt of the Milky Way Galaxy. This is a constellation where a great many wars have been fought. The Orion’s are a warrior clan who too descended upon Earth in huge numbers. The Star Wars movies are fundamentally based on the ancient memories of these mega Orion Wars. Although they have long since ended, the ramifications still affect the Earth! This is a civilization that reached the pinnacle of technological advancement whilst still remaining in a state of deep spiritual conflict. Some of the negative human souls on Earth who are engaged in detrimental activities such as: warfare, nuclear armament, atomic detonations, militant and terrorist behaviour, evil master mindedness, and those Luciferic entities occupying strategic positions in secret governments, etc., have come directly from Orion; however, at the same time, many positive souls busy in peaceful and creative areas of Earth are also descendents from Orion; besides other positive groups as well who are assisting Earth with the stabilization of intuition and advanced mental abilities.

“Thus there are two groups that operate in and from Orion: the negative side that trusts in the concept of ‘serving the self only’, and are quite swayed by the belief that the whole would be served thereby; and the positive side, which holds the ideal of ‘being of service to others’. It is really the same conflict as fought throughout all of Creation.”

{ The Pathway to Sirius is via the Power of the Violet Fire with its leading Gematrian number at 7 whilst, the Power of Sirius is in its Gematrian of number 8, both vertical and horizontal with its colour that rests in its Blue Fire of the Lion Consciousness!}

…Mantra of SIRIUS…

I was about to end here when Lord Thoth, the god of Egypt, appeared and wanted to deliver His Message to you all…..


“Behold, I Am yesterday, today, and the brother of tomorrow. I Am born again and again. Mine is the unseen force where of the gods are sprung, which is as life unto the dwellers in the Watchtowers of the Universe. I Am the charioteer of the east; Lord of the past; and the Lord of the future. I see by my own Light; I Am the Lord of Resurrection who cometh forth from the dust! I raise a flashing flame from the lightening of my eye. Ever rushing on, in the splendour of RA, as the pilot of RA, giving my life to the dwellers of earth, ever advancing towards the heights of Heaven. If I say come up upon the mountain, the Celestial Waters shall flow at my command. I Am RA incarnate, Kephra in the flesh, Enoch in Higher Essence, Buddha come to life, Mahatma Gandhi in the last embodiment. The god who commands is in my mind, god of wisdom is in my heart. My tongue is the sanctuary of truth. My word is accomplished every day! I AM Eternal, therefore, all things are my design. Thus, do come forth to me, invoke me through words and from the abode of thine silence and unutterable wisdom, from thine light and power!”

INNVOCATION TO THOTH: “Thoth! Come thou forth I say, and aid and guard me in this work of art! Procol oh Procol este profane. Barlasti ompala. In the name of the Mighty, I proclaim that I have banished the shells of duality and illusion. I invoke Thee Thoth, the Lord of Wisdom and of Utterance; the God that cometh forth from the veil. Oh Thou, majesty of the godhead, wisdom-crowned Tahuti, Lord of the gates of the Universe, Thee I invoke! Oh Thou of the Ibis head, Thee I invoke! Thou who wieldiest the wand of double power, Thee I invoke! Thou who bearest in thy left hand the Ankh of Life Eternal, Thee I invoke! Thou whose skin is a flaming orange as though it burned in a furnace, Thee I invoke!
“Thou star of the east that didst conduct the magi. Thou art the same all present in heaven and hell. Thou that vibratest between light and the darkness, rising, descending, changing ever, yet … ever the same! The Sun is thy Father, and the Moon thy Mother. Come Thou forth I say, come Thou forth and make every spirit of the firmament and of the ether, upon the earth and under the earth, on dry land and in the water, of whirling air and of rushing fire, and every spell and scourge of God, the Vast Nameless One, I be obedient unto me!”


“I Am Seshat, the Twin Ray of Thoth! Sister to Isis and Osiris, though in essence I Am Isis, a fact not all may grasp in flesh as yet! I, with Thoth, invented language as it is developed today, the writings of the nations in other languages that not all should write with the same letters. I gave humanity their laws and ordained that which no man can alter! I invented measurement and mathematics and magick. I Am she who separated heaven from earth and, created the Gateway back to heaven again! I Am the Goddess of women. I have brought men and women together. I have caused men to love women. I have ordained that the elder be loved by the children. I have instructed mankind in the mysteries, and set up temple precincts with reverence of the divine statues. I Am Maha-Kali in power and have crushed the dominion of the dark brotherhood through time and again. I established justice upon earth, making it more powerful than gold and money. I have caused truth to be considered beautiful. Come unto me ye, and pledge unto me thy loyalties as I pledge mine unto thee!”

INVOCATION TO SESHATA: : “Hear me, O Lady Seshata, hear and save me! Lift up Thy voice to aid me in this critical hour. Lift up Thy voice most musical. Cry aloud, O Queen and Mother Divine, to save me from that I fear most. I invoke Thee to initiate my Soul. Thee is the Priestess, the sacrifice, the shrine, the love and life of the Divine. I am thy queen (or king) enraptured and possessed. Hear, Lady Seshata, and receive my prayer. Thee, Thee I worship and I invoke! Hail to Thee, sole mother of my life!
“Oh Mother Seshata, great art Thou in Thy splendour, mighty is Thy name, and Thy love has no bounds! Thou art Seshata, who art all that ever was, and all that there is to be, for no mortal man hath ever unveiled Thee! In all Thy grace Thou has bought forth the Sun, the fruit that was born forth for the redemption of man. Oh Seshata, Seshata, Seshata, graciously hear my cry unto Thee! We mourn for Thy blessings on us this day, every day to nourish, to aid, and to fill the emptiness within, that only You our beloved Mother can satiate. Unto Thee I pledge my solemn oath of dedication, and for the power and glory of Him the Unknowable One to witness my devotion to Thee!
“For as I now receive Thee into my heart, I ask that Thee never leave me, in times of trial and joy, and even unto death!”

Thoth was the Moon God of Writing and Wisdom and, together with Seshata, they invented writing and are the official Scribes and Recorders of human events on earth. They were, and are, the Divine Mediators between man and God. Thoth and Seshata’s energy can be requested and called upon when one is ready to evolve, overcome human trials, end the karmic plan, and ascend out of this Game by rising above mediocrity and into excellence. Thoth has been the inspiration behind many inventions. Seshata was the Goddess of Writing and Measurement. Thoth together with Seshata maintain the Akashic Records of earth. They were the Scribes who wrote the story of our reality and then hid it inside us so we may discover it only when we are truly and wholly ready to ascend. Thoth is the Master Architect who created the Blueprint of our reality and Seshata based it on the mathematics of sacred geometry. Thoth means “Truth” and “Time”. Thoth is the Master of Balance associated with the Equinoxes – the time when day and night are balanced.

And Seshata means the “Female Scribe” and was seen as the Goddess of writing historical records, accounting and mathematics, measurement and architecture, astronomy and astrology, to the ancient Egyptians, Pharaohs’ and Gods. Seshata has no temples that have been found, though she did have priesthood in the early times. It was at a later time that the priests of Thoth took over the priesthood of Seshata. However in essence, as Thoth grew in importance he absorbed her roles and her priesthood. This is because Seshata is the duality of Thoth, the counterpart of Thoth, and therefore bears the identical traits to him. She was the female goddess of positions belonging mostly to men. Moreover, she is a Magician and has powers of Cause and Effect over any affectation. She is the essence of Cosmic Intuition and Concept of Wisdom. It is she who actually invented Writing and her counterpart Thoth, taught mankind to write.

Thoth, also known as Hermes to the Greeks, was the inventor of Alchemy. This word is derived from an Arabic term – Al Khemi, where Khem was the original name of Ancient Egypt. Thus the term Alchemy meant – “That which pertains to Egypt”. Alchemy and Astrology are the two oldest sciences’ on earth, one of which was created by Thoth and the other by Seshata. Almost all of the other specialized fields of science have evolved from the mother science of Alchemy. The earliest alchemical text was – The Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus. Thoth and Seshata together have introduced Alchemical Techniques for transmuting our body lead (density) into gold (Light) through the Alchemical Fire, which is the Philosophers Stone or the magic formula, in order to ascend out of this Third Dimensional maze and return to the Light of God.

A PRAYER TO God, the Creator of All That Is, to enter HIS KINGDOM OF LIGHT, FOR 8:8:8:8 –






“Now returning to the heart centre of God and Earth, I allow all my encodings to expand from my heart to embrace all of Mother Earth and humanity, transforming all into the 144th Degree of LION CONSCIOUSNESS!” (Inhale and Exhale) “Almighty I AM (3 times)”



The ISIS group has just declared an attack on the Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx! Most countries are now not issuing visas to Egypt. I am traveling there on August 6th. My return was booked for August 11th, but Egypt Air has cancelled that flight suddenly as there are no passengers. I now have to return on the 12th night. The Light has made sure I remain till the Sirius Lion’s Gateway Portal closes (which is on the 12th of August). I write this (and the link above) to inform you how important this Portal Gate Opening is for Earth and humanity. It is such a big event, Celestially and for all the Ascended and Not Incarnated Masters of the Light, that a attack is planned to obliterate altogether the Head Quarters of God’s Light on Earth.

God’s Blessings to all, and Happy New Year!

Sangeeta Handa






Today, July 22nd, is the Feast Day of Mary Magdelene in the Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran Churches!  Known as the Apostle of Apostles, she was present at the two most important moments in the story of Jesus: the crucifixion and the resurrection! She was also known as “the Magdalene” because it was believed that she was from the town of “Magdela” on the western shore of the Sea of Gailee! In Hebrew Migdal means tower, fortress, in Aramaic Magdala means tower or “elevated, great, magnificent.” She was a woman of means, an aromatherapist and an inn keeper and a High Priestess of Isis! In 1956 the Catholic Church declared that she “was not the pertinent sinner” and prostitute as they had originally claimed!

Here are a few images from a ceremony we did in honor her in 2012 in Northern California!

Someone was asking me why is this her day. I’d like to say that I think because it is around the time of the Heliacal Rising of the Isis Star Sirius! Mary Magdelene was also a High Priestess of Isis but I don’t think the Catholic church is that into astronomy!

This year the Isis star is set to rise around August 8th (AKA Lions Gate) … more on that later!



The Menstrual Origins of Our Calendars

Early Moon Calendar

Early Moon Calendar

The menstrual origins of our calendars (AUDIO)
Pssst! You! Yeah, you… are a passenger on a planet… on a blue-green planet that’s orbiting a golden star. And right now we are traveling through a part of our orbit that we call July – a good time to remember that a month is a moonth. A moonth is a moonth. It’s the time the moon takes to orbit us. Long ago our months were actual moonths. But Julius Caesar fabricated an extra month and named it after himself: July. Caesar Augustus fabricated an extra month and named it after himself: August. So, September is now the ninth month, even though sept means seven. October is now the tenth month, even though oct means eight. November is now the eleventh month, even though nov means nine. December is now the twelfth month, even though dec means ten. Yes, our calendar months are out of alignment with our moon’s journey around us; they are mere sheets of paper. Fortunately, there are still many cultures (including the Herbrew, Islamic, Chinese and Hawaiian) where a calendar month is still an actual moonth. In these cultures you know when a month begins because you see it in the sky.

The moon’s cyclical journey around us is the rhythm of woman’s fertility. A menstruating woman in native American cultures is said to be “on her moon.” This doesn’t mean she is perched on that rock up in the sky. It means she is synchronized with its cycle.

Hawaiians call the moon mahina, and their word for woman is wahine. When Hawaiians and other indigenous people talk about the moon they are referring to its cycle – and to every activity that’s synchronized with this rhythm, including woman’s menstrual cycle. Of course, this cycle involves the protecting, caring and nourishing of the womb. Malama, the Hawaiian word for protecting, caring and nourishing, also means moonlight and lunar month. Malama, in Samoan, means the ninth month of pregnancy.

Women were our earliest astronomers. But these gals were not aiming for careers in science. They were asking each other, “How can we avoid bringing more babies into the world than our eco-system can provide food for?” They recognized the need for population control by regulating their sexual activity. This meant knowing when they were fertile. Observing that their fertility cycle is synchronized with the lunar cycle, they kept track of the moon. Their earliest known records of this were etched onto animal bones 40,000 years ago. (See my photo.) This record-keeping for purposes of birth control became our first calendars, which were lunar.

Today’s scientific term for the calculation of time is mensuration. Originally, mensuration meant “knowledge of the menses,” and it gave us our word, measurement. Even today in the Gaelic language of the Celtic people, the words for calendar and for menstruation are the same.

Get Crowned by the Zenith Sun in the Early Summer Time!

Zenith Sun

Listen to the Audio Recording …

Pssst! You! Yeah, you… are a passenger on a planet… on a blue-green planet that’s orbiting a golden star. The ever-changing quality of light that we receive as we spin and orbit around this star offers us all that we know as LIFE. We’ve come to rely on calendars and clocks to tell us where we are on this trip around the sun, but without those, would you know where we are? You might know if you were a native Hawaiian living centuries ago. You would know if you were a honeybee. You might even dance about it! So… what do Hawaiians and honeybees have in common?

Bees who scout out resources like nectar, pollen, water or housing share this vital information with their fellow bees through a “waggle dance.” This dance points out the direction of, the distance to, and the quality of the resource and directs the other bees there. The dancing bee’s movements relate to the sun’s position. Of course, that position changes from one latitude to another and it changes during the day and during the year. Even the rate of change changes at certain times. Scientists can calculate these changes only with complex mathematical tables. Honeybees do these calculations – and communicate them through dance – using methods so simple and natural that scientists are still struggling to understand them.

You can have the sun shining directly over your head only if you’re here in the tropics – in the belt that straddles our equator, 23.5 degrees north and south of it. Right now, for those of us living in the Tropics, we are traveling through a place in our yearly journey that offers us a very special gift. But… do you know how to receive this gift?

When the sun is shining down directly onto the crown of your head it’s in your zenith – at the height of its power – and you are crowned with the radiant force of this star that’s big enough to hold a million Planet Earths. Hawaiians call this force “mana.” But… when and how might we tap this power? The when in the Hawaiian Islands is late May and mid-July, and the precise moment depends on your precise latitude.

In ancient Hawaii certain people were trained in the natural science of downloading this solar power. If you were one of theSunset Hula Dancerse people, you would work with the astronomer, whose careful observations would provide the precise moment of this zenith sun. You would illustrate the sun’s relationship with the tropics by using your waist to represent the equator. You would radiate mana received at this time to your community through complex dance movements and audio frequencies called hula and mele, or chant.

The timing of this moment changes from the northern to the southern end of the island chain. As a dancer, you indicate this range of moments with a range of foot positions, and you indicate precise moments with precise foot positions. This kind of communication is called hula. When white missionaries arrived in Hawaii they outlawed hula for being crude, lewd entertainment.

Now, as our planet is transporting us through the place in our orbit where we in Hawaii experience the zenith sun, I’m wondering… what can we learn from honeybees and native Hawaiians’ relationship with the sun?

This is Harriet Witt, your guide for this little ride on our passenger planet.
