🪐The evening sky over the Northern Hemisphere treated stargazers to a once-in-a-lifetime illusion as the solar system’s two biggest planets appeared to meet in a celestial alignment that astronomers call the #GreatConjunction
The rare spectacle resulted from a near convergence of the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn that happened to coincide with Monday’s winter solstice, the shortest day of the year
For those able to observe the alignment in clear skies, the two frozen-gas spheres appeared closer and more vibrant - almost as a single point of light - than at any time in 800 years

I'm beginning tweeting at the #wintersolstice

As I just explained, we just finished building a new monument, #soultonlongbarrow, which revives a prehistoric practice of building long barrows, not seen for 5,500 years

These are the first images of the new chamber ever shared ImageImageImageImage
Im going 2 explain more about what this is, and how it has been an important resource for our community in surprising ways in this challenging covid year, but for now, I just wanted to share a picture of the monument working with the #wintersolstice #sunset for the 1st time today Image
Now, I realise I need to expand aspects of the context for this happening.

Let's start around 5,500 years go, when the first farmers in the British Isles also found #architecture, which they do by building long barrows... Here's West Kennet in Wiltshire (📸 from resarch trips) Image

For people in the UK, looking at the weather, tonight looks to be the best night to observe the #GreatConjunction. Jupiter and Saturn, both visible to the naked eye and so close together they appear as a single object (depending on eyesight!). Here is how to see it...
Time - you have a narrow window. From about 4.40 to 5.30. Too early and it isn't dark enough to see them. Too late and they will have set, just likes the Sun sets as the Earth turns.
Direction - You need an unobscured south western horizon. The planets will be low in the sky, maybe two hand widths above the horizon. So consider going for a walk at around that time and use your phone's compass to check your direction.

This is the GMT perfect moment of the #GreatConjunction

Several things are going on that indicate to me this is the exact moment we move into #AgeOfAquarius from the age of #pisces

1. Moon conjunct modern ruler ♓ blocking #neptune

#astrology #prophecy
2. The Great conjunction or #jupitersaturnconjunction is not quite perfected at 0° #Aquarius which is about to complete in a few hours from that moment specifically on the #WinterSolstice

3. The world has been looking up at the sky. Our shared subconscious is waking us up.
4. The #MOON is our chart ruler at this exact moment. She is blocking the illusionary nature of neptune

5. The #northnode (souls journey indicating the collective #consciousness at this moment) is transitioning from the 11th house of society into the 12th of #spirituality

3/ you’re gonna see Jupiter and Saturn appear to come together in the sky, and they will be at their closest point on Dec 21st. What’s peculiar about this is just how rare it is.
