The last two Torah parshot, Miketz and Vayigash have had no mention of the most exalted name of the Life giver - YHVH. The brothers have gone down into the deep material world of Egypt/mitzrayim and the beginning of the exile from the holy adamah/Earth is foreshadowed for the priestly peoples. We have the most exalted name appearing again in this weeks parsha of Vayehi. It is in a most interesting place, during the blessing of Jacob for his son Dan. Dan as said earlier is the tribe of this dark winter month of tevet and it also corresponds to the mazal/star sign of the gedi/kid. Astrologers will know that this sign is part of the cardinal four signs that have to do with the will of the Source manifesting in the world. These blessings of Jacob's sons are according to oral Torah hidden prophecies for our times when the light of the geulah/redemption is grower brighter by the day and night. The Torah says " Assemble yourselves and I will tell you what will befall you in the End of Days"Beresheit 49:1. The end of days is in Hebrew, " beacharit hayamim" and this is a phrase denoting the change in aeons that the Earth is experiencing right now. It says of Dan that he will unite all the tribes, he will be as a nachash/serpent that bites a horse's heels/ayekvey. The heel is another sign of the very "end", the heel, of a long phase of history of the exiles. Then it says a prayer for the yeshuatecha/salvation to HaShem. This is the only place YHVH is found in the last three parshot of the book of Beresheis which cover the beginning of the long road of the work of raising the sparks of kedusha/holiness from the depths of the Earth. These blessings were prophecies of the future that is happening now and here only with the tribe who is the serpent that goes the deepest of creatures, we have the exalted name. The big connection for us now is the sign/mazal of Dan as the gedi/capricororn. As spoken of before, the planet pluto veils the most hidden of the sephirot/keter, the crown, the depth of the continuum of being, the soul world. This planet takes 248 to make a swing around the shemesh/sun. The ancient sepher Hechalot/ the book of palaces gives us the dimensions of three kinds of angelic celestials. The wingspan of a Kerub is precisely 248 years distance! The planet pluto and the Earth herself hold the vertices of the central pillar, the continuum of being/life. In the last week of January, in Shevat we have pluto moving into the cardinal earth sign of the gedi/the kid where it will be for many years. Pluto has not been in an Earth mazal for decades. We also have the moon's nodal point/ where her orbit intersects the ecliptic, moving into aquarius where it was in the year 5750 when we moved into this special historical period of the Kibbutz goliot, the ingathering of exiles. The moon's nodes swing through all the signs in a little over 18 years and so we will be experiencing a greatly accelerated movement of the global purification and peace process. The comet holmes in peretz/perseus will also be moving by the star algol/Lilith at TuB'shevat at the same time that Pluto moves into the goat.We are right now getting a sharp focus on it all as the planet mars/mea'dim goes into opposition at midnight at zenith in the night sky of the night of December 24th/Tevet15- the full moon. What a star on the top of the tree that so many christian people bring into their homes. Most do not know that this tree is the very tribal Jewish shamanic symbol of the Etz Chayim, the tree of sacred Life that binds us all together.We are all related!
The Torah parsha for this week ends with Jacob being brought for burial to the special cave of Machpelah where the eight matriarchs and patriarchs are together like in the kamea of the 3X3 with the Five of life and the letter Heh of the great name in the middle box. Here is the key to the techiyas HaMetim, the enlivening of the dead that some are even now beginning to sense happening as we discover who we really are and what this is all about. the Zohar hints at the stone connection to Machpelah in the commentary for this week about the Eben shetiyah, the foundation stone."When HaShem created the world, He established it on seven pillars..... the world did not come into being until HaShem took a certain stone, which is called the foundation stone, and cast it into the abyss so that it held fast there, and from it the world was planted. This is the central point of the universe, and on this point stands the Holy of Holies" Zohar I231a(Sperling trans). This stone of special crystal, the cave of machpelah and the kamea of Shabbatai 3X3 are all the secret of the gate of the awakening of those asleep in the dust.
