Mercury is the planet of communication, which means it has the qualifications of an electrical cable, telephone wire, a teacher, an adviser, a story teller — basically anything that can transfer any information from point a to point b. The letter Zayin created the sign of Gemini and the letter Resh created Mercury. Together these two letter create the word Raz, whose numerical value is — Light Or. Raz also means secret sod in Hebrew.
Many secrets were revealed in the cosmos during the month of Sivan. When the awesome light of freedom was revealed on Passover, this light was given to us with no effort from our side.
On this fiftieth day after Passover, we reach the level of Binah. An awesome amount of light is revealed on this day, as it is the anniversary of when people of the world received the Torah. The very same energy of immortality is revealed each year on Shavuot. The Ari says that whoever remains awake on Shavuot, engaging in Zohar study, is promised to be total protection and safety until Rosh Hashanah.
Geminis are intellectuals who have the desire to know everything, and an unlimited curiosity to collect information of every kind.
Pisces completes the astrological cycle that begins with Aries. It is Central Column of the water signs, and is controlled by two planets, Jupiter. We are in for a brand new month of lunar Pisces as New Moon of Adar II is born on Wednesday afternoon of this week! Let's take a closer look.
This is because knowledge is power, and the more information gathered today will make future choices easier to make. The end result is their reluctance to enter any sort of commitment. The solution for this personal obstacle is to find a teacher, someone that is able to give satisfactory answers to all questions. This will enable the Gemini to focus on one way, one God, which gives them a better chance to reach certainty. There is no greater teacher than a Gemini with a firm sense of certainty.
As a communication sign, Gemini can be the perfect channel, one who can learn, understand and teach. The ideal for a Gemini is to be a channel for as many people as possible, especially for those who are lost on their path, and help others to reach their own personal certainty. The duality of Gemini is expressed in every area of life.
They embody the ability to do more then one task at the same time, as well as the the difficulty to commit in relationships. They have trouble with loyalty to one political party as the servant of two masters , and they tend to change moods, like the wind changes direction and strength. That is why Geminis can be a different person each day. Tammuz Cancer. Tammuz is one of the three negative months of the year: Tevet, Tammuz and Av.
In Tevet, the siege of Jerusalem began, in Tammuz the walls around Jerusalem were penetrated and in Av the destruction of both Holy Temples in Jerusalem took place. Kabbalah teaches us that the course of history transpires as a result of the cyclical energy processes of the year rather than because of physical events. Therefore, by looking at the time at which each moment in history occurs, we can better understand why it happened.
Tammuz is controlled by the Moon. Each planet controls two signs, except for the Sun, which controls only Leo Av and the moon, which controls only Cancer Tammuz. Because the sun and the moon control one sign each, an unbalanced situation is created in each of these months. This imbalance causes the crab, the symbol for the month of Tammuz, to walk sideways rather than forward and backward. This also gives the month of Tammuz the opening for Cancer to begin, and it is the only month that is named after a disease.
On the seventeenth day of Tammuz, Moses came down form Mount Sinai with the Tablets, bringing to the world the power and energy of immortality. However, the Israelites and the mixed multitude were waited impatiently for Moses to come down from Mount Sinai and built the Golden Calf, the sight of which caused Moses to shatter the Tablets.
This moment was marked by a clashing of two energies: the power of immortality and chaos with suffering, depression and death. The historical fact that the walls were broken on the seventeenth of Tammuz was simply a manifestation of the incompatibility between the potential of the spiritual vessel and the reality of desire to receive for oneself alone. Sartan English: Cancer , in Aramaic is made up of two parts: Sar — to remove and clean all the negativity, and Tan — chaos, hatred, animosity and any aspect of negativity.
The power of the month of Cancer is to remove any problems or negative situations in our lives that might cause this disease to come to our lives. The moon is unlike any other celestial body, as it changes its position each day, but remains visible nonetheless. It begins each lunar month as a thin scythe and reaches its fullest brightness on the fifteenth. From the moment that the fifteenth day is over, the light of the moon begins to wane, and this cycle repeats itself each month.
They seem to need more love than other sign. The cure for these low moments is caring, sharing, loving, and giving to others. In addition, Cancerians must do their best to let go of the past and see beyond ill feelings and wounds.
This is the only way for them to find truly happiness and love. Cancerians are very domestic people. They love history and archaeology — anything that reminds them of the past. They have a sensitive stomach, as this is the body part they hold in the tension and unsolved emotional difficulties. Av Leo. Av is one of the three most negative months of the year.
The other two are Tevet Capricorn , because it is ruled by Saturn, which a planet of harsh judgments,. Av — sign of Leo — is ruled by the sun, and is the Left Column of the fire signs. This indicates an added influence of fire which is expressed as judgments, burning and consuming fire with no balance. This is the reason we experience a polarity of events, some negative and some positive. Together we get the energetic combination of that controls the month of Av and Leo.
At the center of our solar system, the sun brings each of the planets light, heat and life, without which organic life could not exist. People born in this month are famous or infamous for behaving like the sun. Their trademarks are leadership, determination, domination and power, and in full force, this combination can lead to the pitfalls of ego and pride. Leos easily fall into perceiving that they are king. The only control we have is self-control. Any feelings of ego, pride and superiority can only prevent us from helping others, and that can never be good. The number nine, represented by the Hebrew letter Tet, connects us to Sfirat Yesod, which manifests all of the energy that is gathered from all the upper luminous emanations.
Jerusalem was and remains the energy center of the world. When the people of Israel, and the residents of Jerusalem specifically, chose not behave with human dignity toward one another, and this energy was created and accumulated in Yesod, it had to manifest itself, and did so in an explosion of negativity on the ninth day of Av, in a deadly short circuit. The ninth day of Av is a fasting day, not because the two Temples were destroyed, but it is a day that lends itself to calamity.
When there is no unity, no minimum of human dignity between people — this negative energy is accumulated and culminates on the ninth of Av. What is the solution? A change of consciousness and behavior. If each of us could perceive ourselves as though we are ticking time bombs, and any self-serving action would trigger the fuse, we would be much more careful with our actions and words. The ninth day of Av is a day of destruction, but at the same time it is the birth of Messiah.
Where there is the greatest darkness, therein also lies the biggest potential to reveal tremendous light, but it all depends on our actions. He chose to leave the world on the fifth day — which represents the luminous emanation of Hod, in order to transform daveh poor and weak to Hod. The death of the Ari, which does not represent an actual physical death, provides us with an opening for awesome light we can connect to by studying his writings on that night.
On this day, both the sun and the moon are full. The sun — Zeir Anpin, the positive pole — represents the male aspect of our universe.
The moon — Malchut, the negative pole — represents the female aspect of the universe. This is why our sages stated that there is no happier day in the year, and this rare cosmic opportunity allows us to find our soulmate.
The same way the sun and the moon are in harmony on this day, so too can we draw this partnership to our lives. Elul Virgo. The month of Elul is the completion of the lunar year. This month corresponds to the sign of Virgo, which is an earth sign and is ruled by Mercury. The sign of Virgo is connected to the practicality, working and serving others. People born in this month feel the need to achieve financial security through working, and also have a great need to serve society.
People under the sign of Virgo find success in community careers: as doctors, nurses, or any profession healing the body and the soul; as social workers, service technicians, bankers, accountants, and in professions of beauty and fashion. The end of the lunar year expresses the Virgo's need to check and criticize their actions, like a business man that reviews the year-end balance, profit and loss.
That is how Virgos acquire their attribute of criticism. It easier to criticize and see what is wrong with others, but much harder to do criticize oneself, and this is the real lesson Virgos should learn. When is the correction of the Virgo complete? When they learn to love, honor and accept the other person as they are without criticism, judgment or trying to change them to their own criteria.
Once the Virgo achieves completely unconditional love, they have finished their correction. Mercury in Hebrew is Kochav. Financially it is not an easy month. Many important change might happen, the need for new business ventures, different ones with new consciousness. International business connections can take place.
There is also a large incident of immigration in this month, where more people find the need to leave their homelands in order to go to new places, looking for their luck and to change their lives. There is a greater inclination to widen and enlarge the metaphysical vessel in order to better understand — through the kabbalistic understanding — the meaning of life, both in the personal and global realms.
Tishrei Libra. Tishrei is the sign of Libra — the seventh month of the astrological wheel that begins in Nissan — sign of Aries. In ancient times, the scale was used by putting on the objects to be weighed on one side and stones in units of measurement on the other.
If and when they do have a desire for something more, or for something difficult to obtain, Pisceans may sometimes lack the spiritual wherewithal to fight for it. The life lessons from their earlier lives and the other signs having been learned lead them to realize that this world is a world of truth and perfect justice. Av is one of the three most negative months of the year. The second one was a Tzadik, a Righteous person. Furthermore, most people know Pisces as a Water sign which shows great sensitivity.
