In 2004, I took an Astronomy class as a Science requirement for my Associate in Arts degree. It was fascinating and awe-inspiring to learn about the planets and the space we live in. But the most fascinating bit of information was hearing our Professor say one day, "There is a 13th sign of the Zodiac....One that was "deleted" thousands of years ago. Now, I hold no regard for the psuedo-science of Astrology, but if you think I'm crazy--do some research."

Well-I did. And he was right! There is a constellation between Sagittarius and Scorpio called Ophiuchus, or if you prefer Greek names, it is Aesculapius. Either way, it is known as The Healer.

"This intriguing constellation is called Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus is named by his relationship to the archetypal being called the Serpent. This is the same Serpent that appears in the Garden of Eden story in the bible and also the same Serpent as Quetzalcoatle and Rukulcan, as he is called in Middle America by the Aztecs and the Mayans."

Ophiuchus - 13th Astrological sign by Betmatrho

To many people, the Serpent represents Kundalini...the Sacred energy of the Universe. This energy lives within us, and can be activated by aligning with the 7 Chakra centers in our bodies. A holder of this energy is certainly a powerful figure and worthy role-model to emulate.

Personally, I prefer to go way back to ancient, ancient times, and know Ophiuchus by its original title as The Snake Goddess. Have you studied Art History? If so, you know that the first Supernatural Being to be worshipped was The Goddess. Maybe you also recognize the picture below the map? This is an image of the Snake Goddess, found in ancient Crete. Before the Greeks took Crete by force and Apollo assumed the mantle of Supreme God in the lexicon, there was Gaiai- Ancient Mother/Provider/Protector.

Anyway, I write this because as a person born under the Ophiuchus sign, finding out about its existence has given me a place and a meaning that was always missing before. And there are many of you out there like me! Have you ever said to yourself, "I don't belong anywhere." Have you ever felt lost and out-of-sorts with the world? It's because your guide and protector has been hidden from you. I would always read my horoscope as Sagittarius; count planet Jupiter as my guide. Now I know that my planet is Uranus-- the planet of transformation and change.

Believe me, this has changed my outlook on life, and I feel much more "at home" in my personality. I do not feel lost or alone anymore. I have my place in the sky. And as Plato said, "As above, so below."

And here is the really cool part...synchronicity in action! One day last year, I was gassing up my car, and the total came to $20.12. Well---that was too auspicious to miss! 2012...oh goodness, this means something. So I went home and did some searching...And came across The Lost Book of Nostradamus, which has everything to do with Ophiuchus and the meaning of 2012!

* Ophiuchus, the thirteenth constellation in the night sky, is supposed to be associated with the end of time in the book. The Great Alignment will be when the sun rises with perfect center of the Galaxy as indicated by this constellation.

* Supposedly the constellation Sagittarius is pointing an arrow at the center of the Galaxy. An expert stated that at that great moment, the knowledge of the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden will be revealed.

Perhaps that's why it had to be removed and/or hidden from the night sky mythology. We humans are not supposed to know of our Supernatural Origins, which has been lost to us since our "fall". And the key to that destiny appears to lie in this Lost Sign.

"Another important connection to Ophiuchus lies in the fact that the Winter Solstices, since 1937, have been in his area of the sky. Due to a 26,000 year cycle called the precession of the equinox, the spring equinox appears to move from one constellation to another. At this time, it is shifting from Pisces, the Fish to Aquarius, the Water Bearer. It is being suggested here that Ophiuchus, the Serpent Carrier, is the archetype of what we commonly call the New Age and that the time of Aquarius is still yet to come. The last Age of Ophiuchus was from about 4500 BC to 2500 BC. Now that the Serpent Holder has returned, we have the opportunity to "remember" and once again access ancient wisdom from that time and specifically wisdom related to "serpent energy."

I have many times felt that this time, we would have the 60's vibe without the negative side-effects. Do you feel it too?

The Age of Aquarius people! All of you from the Psychedelic Generation know this and remember. This is what we learned as kids! The dawning of the Age of Aquarius... And it is happening NOW...in OUR life-times. it is a great and wondrous time to be alive, despite all the horror. We must hold on to our star legacy and be a part of the Healing and Kundalini Rising.

"Every year between November 22, and December 25, the Sun passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus, from our perspective here on the Earth. Many of us recognize this as the "holiday Season". The Christmas holiday is, on one level, the celebration of the birth of Christ or Christ consciousness. This state of consciousness, also sometimes called galactic consciousness, is represented by the constellation of Ophiuchus, the Serpent Dancer, when achieved within a human body."

"In galactic astrology, the center of the Galaxy is analogous to the Higher Self or the Jungian Self. It is only by transcending the "wheel of twelve" and allowing energy to spiral, resonant with the number thirteen, that we as humans, access and maintain a conscious connection to our Higher Self."

It's no wonder that the 13th sign has been hidden from us. It is our connection to the Sacred in the sky. Our melding with The One, if you will. It is now Time to truly recognize our star connection and connection with all in the universe. Time also to recognize our connection with the greatest power of all...LOVE.

Please join me in claiming your heritage fellow Serpent Holders!!

      Dear Americans. Please stop with the hype. Just stop. Your rational is "we have to take care of our own".....

      Is never going to happen. They just made permanent a 1.7 trillion dollar tax cut policy for people who are already rich.

      And they will cut programs for fellow Americans to pay for it.

      They are not using the money to "create new jobs", they are using it for stock buy backs.

      They never intend to take care of Americans. They intend to take the money and run.

      How many times do we have to re-live this???

      Back when Occupy Wallstreet was going on, there was a guy from England proposing a 1% tax on business transactions. 1%. He claimed that money could solve world hunger.

      It didnt take. Why? Because 1% is too much to ask apparently. Oh i know i know, u claim the rich already pay their fair share....well lets remember, under Eisenhower, they paid 93%....and were STILL rich after that!

      And they dont get this money alone....they have a lot of help.

      But we have been bamboozled to think they are victims of a meany-beany gubmint.

      And we will happily go along with the brainwash: "oh no oh no.....they pay far too much in taxes. Even tho we work for them, contribute to their wealth, why should they have to share it? Keep the wages low....wer'e just measly workers after all. Yes yes...go ahead and raise my taxes so they pay less.

      With a straight face!

      Its a ponzi scheme, and why its in the shape of a pyramid.

      I guess years of pounding it in our heads has made us give up.

      But I want my kids and grandkids to know that America once offered good jobs at good wages, and workers were prized.

      My immigrant grandpas only needed one job to support their families.

      Slowly, that changed as we were programmed to lionize the owners, and bow our heads down as lowly workers.

      Smh. Are we mice or are we men? We are pussies for the pussy grabbers!!!

      I can have empathy for this man;

      "This was someone lost,“ attorney Ron Lowy told Anderson Cooper on CNN Friday.

      He said Sayoc was “abandoned by his father” and was desperately seeking an identity. He “was looking for anything and he found a father in Trump,” said Lowy. Sayoc had never been politically active until Trump’s campaign for the presidency."

      But i have zero empathy for Trump or his frenzy of hate people screaming their hate to the world.

      And yeah, i get the father figure. Hes the macho man that weve had to deal with for centuries. The man who can do what he wants, when he wants, cause hes a man.

      Catcall when you walk by.."hey hunny, lookin good"...who the eff asked you?

      Maul you to get a feel and then have women excuse it..."oh, a little groping is normal. All boys do that"

      Say things like grab her pussy, my daughter is hot...makes me want to puke in my mouth.

      So no. No sympathy for sadism, meaness, macho crap, submissive woman crap.

      It is enough for me that he, as president, calls a woman Horseface.

      It is way past enough that he leads his frothing crowds in "lock her up".

      Hes a brute. Lot of men and women like that stuff. Not me.

      I prefer brains over brawn. Especially in a president.

      My gut reaction to him is "keep away from that guy". Hes no good.

      “No. It was a nut job. End of the blame game.”

      Hold on. Republicans use Scalise shooting as proof the left is violent. Someone just did it recently!

      None of you say “the guy was a nut, forget it.”

      You people always give yourselves so much more leeway in everything.

      If bombs had been sent to Pence, Cruz, Bolton and King, what do you think the narrative would be.

      I know for sure what it would be, and all of you here on the right would be pushing it. Demonizing the left to your hearts content.

      Look at you! STILL you enjoy “Lock her up”! And now dumbbell Cruz has added Beto to the list.

      Gd it. Sick and tired of you all doing something, then telling others “oh no, you can’t do that....2 wrongs don’t make a right”, you know....until you decide to do it again, that is.

      Tell your gd potty mouth president to wash his mouth out with soap before he opens it again. Or deal with the rest of us who demand the same gd considerations.

      BLECH!

      In case you really dont see whats going on, just substitute "jews" for "immigrants" in a Trump speech, and its abundantly clear.

      And islamaphobia has been in abundance since 9/11. With Adelson giving so much $$ to repubs, and Bolton back in power, its there in spades

      https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk...

      And once again, substitute "jews" for "muslims", and its clear whats going on.

      Add the continued demonization of any black person or woman who stands up to power.....

      Its almost laughable. Only it's not funny.

      I’m voting because Donald Trump has ruined America.”

      Yes, they will criminalize abortion, and legalize rape.

      They will lock up all poor people of color, no matter the reason.

      The rich will own everything, and jobs will be serfdom.

      What is it that you cant see?

      Oh, you dont believe history repeats itself?

      You have not been vigilant. You have been spiteful. And you gave us this unequal society.

      Isnt it something that the spite of having a female president was worth all this.

      Here’s the problem with bullies.....they drown everyone else out.

      While you always clamor that America is a Christian nation, it goes much deeper than that.

      In fact, there is a statue in one of the buildings in DC of the Goddess Athena.

      And this is why you see such strong resistance to Trumputin.

      Sic temper tyrannis.

      Thus always to tyrants

      And it’s unbelievable to me how you conveniently forget the history of the Puritans escaping the Church of England.....and how you now force your version of Christianity on us all.

      We are a free people. We are people of every nation and every belief.

      We won’t become a corporate theocracy.

      "Barry Bluestone, Dean of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University, predicts that within the next eight years there could be at least 5 million potential job vacancies in the United States, nearly half of them (2.4 million) in social sector jobs in education, health care, government and nonprofit organizations. The loss in total output could limit the growth of needed services and cost the economy as much as $3 trillion over the five-year period beginning in 2018.

      "If the Baby Boom generation retires from the labor force at the same rate and age as current older workers, the baby bust generation that follows will likely be too small to fill many of the projected new jobs," states Bluestone's report, After the Recovery: Help Needed – The Coming Labor Shortage and How People in Encore Careers Can Help Solve It

      https://www.reliableplant.com/Read/23553/Economist...

      ********

      Nothing to do with Trump at all. And as far as wages going up, it's a scam. Sure, minimum wage went up in mass...to $11.00 an hr. ......just think of that in 2018 terms.....11 bucks.

      I got a nice raise in 2016.....but now I'm looking at the same take home pay I had in 1995.

      You swamp people can keep touting Trump. He's the biggest scam artist to hit the stage.

      Don't you care that he regularly speaks to Vladimir putin? Oh I guess Vladimir could be lying.....my guess he's grooming Trump on how to fleece America, like Putin did USSR. And Putin learned from his predecessor.

      On and on it goes.

      Cool. New one. Woman claims she watched trump and her friend have sex....Marla was pregnant at the time.

      Now people thinking the 1.5 mil payment to playboy bunny was actually for trump. And that she had an abortion.

      And to think you tell me I enjoy murdering babies in the womb....and I’ve never had an abortion.

      Soon, you will have no fingers left to point. Trump does everything you claim to be morally against.

      It’s actually fascinating to watch.

      Now the righty's trying to play the victim on Twitter, too????

      I got a 12 hr "penalty" for saying the NRA video advocates killing liberals (which is does, btw. Just like Trump did) Said my comment went against their policies.

      Which means that just like here, a bunch of right wingers complained until something was done.

      Hubpages seems to be moving beyond all that, forums kind of dying out.

      But I'll be damned if the nasty right get to claim victimhood.

      Wouldn't be new. I've read plenty that says he asked Marla Maples to get an abortion, and she refused.

      In case anyone is wondering if that will be the last straw for evangelicals....no.

      Know where I'm going to start asking about Guns? Gun clubs. Every town here has one...i would BET they feel the same....that no one is entitled to an assault rifle.....unless it's for show.

      I wonder how many actual gun owners are disenchanted with the NRA.

      I know for a FACT tons of vets are.

      Could it be that as with the Republican stranglehold on our gvt....that the real number of NRA and gun fetishists is only like 35%?

      How is it that this 35% think they can keep control? Think about it....it can't be by legal means...because it just won't work. Mathematically, it is impossible.

      They must do it by subterfuge, and the outright cold hard force of brute power.

      What happens if Trump pardons all these organized criminals in his administration?

      Well, it’s nice to see that so many hp members are in the high income levels....but I’m not. And while your taxes have been reduced, mine have gone up. I’m of the low income levels, who have seen their taxes go from paying 10% to paying 12.

      I now pay at the same rate as millionaire Mitt Romney.....

      You may find this making America great....I see it as making America elite. Growing the swamp, and stifling hope and growth.

      You have celebrated making the ladder even harder to reach, while pulling it up after you got yours.

      Retirement age is now 70......for all you wealthy retirees who like to complain about people taking your money....

      You are the last generation that even gets a retirement.

      But i’s great for you...so maga.

      No more chain migration like Melania’s parents and her sister.....oh no.

      No more you know, colored people getting in here oh no no no

      No more of that cancer treatment drug that keeps you alive....what, you expect to live without being rich? Pullllease. This is maga.

      Shutting down planned parenthood. Cause you know, women arent entitled to the use of the tax money they pay. And your Boss can decide you don’t get birth control...cause maga

      Do you know your vp Pence believes in conversion therapy? I mean.......C’MONN

      I can’t with this geezer administration which favors rich white christian men.

      11. Plans to defund Americas part in the International Space Station

      12. Leaving the Paris accord

      13. Calling the media fake

      14. Calling the fbi and cia corrupt (except, of course, when they helped YOU by releasing that letter)

      15. Using the presidency to profit off for private business

      16. Allowing public employees to take Air Force One to a godam eclipse watch

      17. Calling world leaders derogatory names

      18. Giving Jerusalem to Israel

      19. Letting everybody know your disdain for Democrats.....half the country

      20. Excusing the KKK

      21. Calling black men sons of bitches

      22. Firing everyone associated with OUR justice dpt for YOUR personal benefit

      23. Acting like a CEO, rather than a CO-EQUAL player

      24. Making it OK to hate

      25. Making it OK to feel superior

      26. Making it OK to put Christianity above the Constitution

      27. Giving a small minority full control over the rest of us

      28. Most of all, being a member of the Russian mob.

      These are at the top of my head.....GIVE ME TIME, ill think of more.

      And soon to come.....they want your Social Security and your Medicaid

      "Daniel Seidemann, a prominent Israeli attorney who founded the NGO Terrestrial Jerusalem, went on a tweetstorm against Vice President Mike Pence for his hyper-partisan visit to Jerusalem that further exacerbated tensions in the region.

      “The pageant Jerusalem [that] the world witnessed during the Pence visit was a meeting between a prominent leader of the ‘end-of-days’ evangelical cult and its Israeli sister settler cult—cults that now dominate the governance of their respective countries," Seidemann wrote.

      "Zero hedges has the MO of a Soviet agitprop operation, that it reliably peddles Russian propaganda."

      anti US, anti Western line.....which I happily consumed under GW Bush.

      I don't feel that way now. Now I feel anything anti US is a ruse. Know why? Cause, hullo: Where is the anti Russian?? Is Putin not grabbing for power?? Is he not to blame for anything?? pffffttttt

      And now I hear Sweden is teaching it's citizens to distinguish fake news, due to Russian interference...and Putins desire to ruin NATO.

      Well, these people on this show were freed when he was killed. Now do not have to fear for their lives.

      Those soldiers were given bad intel, walked into an ambush unprepared and with no backup.

      The rescue helicopter was a private company outsource and did not take a headcount.

      They left sgt johnson behind.

      His indicator beacon was activated, so he was alive.

      They did not allow open casket, so you can imagine what isis did to him.

      And these men have the nerve to disparage the widow and her supporters.

      uh oh...slick willy's back.

      "slick willy"....nice term for a president, eh?

      and yet, not one word of reprimand from people who rev their insult meter over "dumpy trump".

      thin skinned, or just double standard?

      either way.....im sick to death of it.

      there really are no words for this. since trump fired bharara, he's thinking about hiring marc mukasey.

      bharara was investigating fox news.

      mukasey is roger ailes personal attorney.

      if you cant see this adm for what it is....you need to get on twitter or something. get some news outside of mainstream. before its too late.

      clue: you are about to lose your healthcare in favor of a tax cut for the rich.

      is it too much to ask for honesty? some human compassion? why do they tell us we are not deserving of such?

      aca is not a failure. lives are not dollars in a bank account.

      canada and uk on my twitter feed are just amazed that we are still tying healthcare to money. they pay taxes and no one has to worry when they get sick! its so simple. until you place a dollar sign on everything.

      we do not need to repeal, we need to expand! or, single-payer. that would be smarter.

      but as long as you tell us you have 21 billion for a wall, you dang sure have money for our health and well-being!
