Why is the Galactic Cross so important in esoteric writings ?
The Milky Way is a broad band of stars that are all close to the same plane in the cosmos. They are so close that they look like a
milky pathway across the sky to us, when viewed from Earth, even though we, ourselves and our Solar System are part of the
Milky Way, itself.
The eliptic is the pathway of our Sun across the sky as seen by us viewers HERE. It changes throughout the year according to
the Earth's position as it revolves around the Sun. This happnening because the Lord made it tilt 23.5 degrees at Genesis giving us
The planets of our Solar System follow this eliptic pathway, because the Solar System is on a plane with the planets basically
following this plane around the Sun.
Consequently, at right angles would be the time when all their combined influences would effect us the most or combine at right
angles to the constellation plane to give the most effect
The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. This alignment occurs as a result
of the precession of the equinoxes.
Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one
degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess
through the Galactic equator (see diagram below).
The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the
Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997).
Thus, the Galactic Alignment "zone" is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 - 2016. This is "era-2012."
This Galactic Alignment occurs only once every 26,000 years, and was what the ancient Maya were pointing to with the 2012
end-date of their Long Count calendar.
These are the astronomical facts of the matter. From a larger per-spective, we can visualize the 2012
Galactic Alignment in the following way:
Position A is where the December solstice sun was in relation to the Milky Way some 3,000 years ago. Position B is
1,500 years ago. And position C is "era-2012", when the December solstice sun has converged, as a result of the
precession of the equinoxes, with the exact center-line of the Milky Way (the Galactic equator). Notice that the place
of alignment is where the 'nuclear bulge' of the Galactic Center is located. (Excerpt)
In other words, the solstice-sun didn't touch the galactic equator until 1980, and it takes 36 years to transverse all the
way through its path..... until the year 2016. Thats this year..... The center point being 1998, that's 6,000 years from the year of
It leaves in 2016 according to the above web-page and according to the more mathematical
Its hard to imagine in 3 demensions, let alone 2, and when you throw in time, we have four demensions...which can make one get
a headache when trying to solve the mysteries of the stars, planets, and Sun's motions..... and not being the sharpest tool, in the
woodshed or behind a telescope, it makes concentration even more difficult.
Anyway........ heres an poor theological but excellent graphic website showing the three planes involved.....
Galactic Plane, Celestial Plane, and Earth titled plane....
Of interest to me, was the dating of the astronomcal cross, of 6,000 years as this coincides with biblical history. and prophecy.
(more maybe later)
But maybe even more interesting is that the ECLIPTIC PLANE is at 60 degrees to the GALACTIC PLANE....
See the second graphics... and 60 degrees is the notorious and beautiful angle of the flower of life, and a hexagon, and the vescica
When you add the titl of the Earth because of the axis of the Earth, 23.5 degrees, together ......... you get 83.5 degrees.....
BOOM, ZAP...... and the remaining 6.5 degrees to get to a perfect cross at right angles or ninety degrees is the angle of the Kings
Chamber offset from perpendicular in the Enoch Great Pyramid....
60+23.5+6.5= 90 degrees
This being the so called Lost Symbol written about by Dan Brown...... and graphically shown on their website
The mystery of the 6.5 degrees slant of the Pyramid.
Ha, and they use the word 'erect'...... as in erecting a tent.... bridegroom for bride... wedding chamber or passageway.
In My Opinion..... (Regulus in Virgo) and they are ONE.
These three intersecting astrophysical planes, the galactic plane, the ecliptic plane, and the Earth's equatorial plane, all tilted at
unique angles to one another, create the geometric orientation of the two intersecting lines or cross members of Earth's
Precessional Cross. Due to Earth's precession of the equinoxes, one cross member (the vernal axis) rotates around the ecliptic
ring while the other cross member (the galactic equatorial axis) remains stationary—creating the ~25,000 year "Cycle of Earth's
Precessional Cross." The timing of this cyclic movement determines when the moving cross member is perpendicular to the
stationary one, thus creating the perfect or erect cross. There are two erect crosses occurring in the cycle,
