The form of the mateh/staff of Aaron is buried deep in the dark soil of mitzrayim and the remez/hint is in Bereishis 49:5 (mem-tet-heh=mateh/staff and 40-9-5)which blessings in the exile of Egypt end the book of Bereishis and set the stage for the geulah. This mateh connects heaven and Earth as hinted at in Zohar and is under the rulership of the Baal of precious wealth. The reappearance of this sacred mateh/scepter at this time was prophecied in Talmud/aggadah and changes the actual placement where the third temple meets the physical geographically. The golden menorah of dedication of the third holy temple lights the present full moon.
