As the annual Torah cycle progresses, this week we're back at BaMidbar at last!
Of course as an Astrologer, this is my favorite Parsha. The 12 Tribes arrayed around
the Mishkan reflect exactly the 12 Mazalot (Zodiac Signs) mirroring
them in the Heavens above. The Tribal Encampment Configuration in the
Desert was a powerful energetic vortex designed by HKBH and arrayed in the Heavens even before humankind was created.
The same pattern was foreshadowed by the positions the 12 sons of Yacov
(Jacob) were instructed by their dying father to take around his coffin
as they escorted it from Egypt to Ertez Yisrael, to bury him in the
Cave of Machpelah with Yitzchak, Rivka, Avraham and Sarah. The coffin of
Yacov was the "Mishkan" in this instance.
The energetic vortex was
deliberate and powerful. The Cardinal (Initiating) points each had their
"Degalim" (flags) - Yehuda/Aries/Nissan to the East,
Ephraim/Libra/Tishrei to the West, Reuven/Cancer/Tammuz to the South and
Dan/Capricorn/Tevet to the North. Following each Cardinal
Tribe/Sign/Month comes the Fixed (Establishing) Issachar/Taurus/Iyar,
Shimon/Leo/Av, Menashe/Scorpio/Cheshvan, and Asher/Aquarius/Shvat.
Following the Fixed Tribes comes the Mutable (Transforming)
Zevulon/Gemini/Sivan, Gad/Virgo/Elul, Benyamin/Sagittarius/Kislev and
Initiating - Establishing - Transforming. Each
Quadrant of the Year works to propel that energy from Equinox to
Solstice and back again... like clockwork. COSMIC CLOCKWORK.
Astrologically, these 12 energies are the "Houses of the Holy" and YOU
are the Mishkan - the point in the middle of the cosmic energetic
circle, where Initiating, Establishing and Transforming energies do
their cosmic dance around you in the Heavens, mirroring and reflecting
above in symbol and archetype that which is below.
