Those who have followed along the weaves of the WEB are aware of the historical dimensions of the alignments that have taken place as the Vernal Equinox (Spring) has aligned with the stars in the ‘Scroll’, the strand of thread, ribbon or fishing line that runs from Al Rischa (the knot) to Omega Piscium, the star we have just aligned with on February 11th, 2013, one year ago. On that day, eagerly waited for and anticipated by WEBHeads for literally decades now, the Pope said he quit.
Say hello to the end of the Age of Pisces.
And hello Aquarius.
As the information age opens and we learn more and more about our past, present and future, let’s take a closer look at the Classical period, and the alignments that occurred there.
The three brightest stars in the constellation of the Ram are all located in the head, and are generally considered to be marking the horns of the beast. Hamal, Sharatan and Mesarthim are their names.
The first star chronologically to be triggered by the Vernal Equinox was Hamal, in 402 BC. This represents the end of the Peloponnesian War and was written about by Thucydides, an Athenian general who fought in this conflict. It is widely considered to be a classic and is regarded as of of the earliest scholarly works of history. This war claimed thousands of lives and humbled both Athens and Sparta. Conflicts among the Greek city states paved the way for the Macedonian King Philip to later conquer most of the Greek peninsula.
As the Vernal Equinox aligned the Sharatan, in 182 BC, the greatest threat Rome had ever faced was finally brought to an untimely end. Following his invasion of the Italian peninsula, Hannibal marched down from the Alps and wiped out three larger Roman armies sent to stop him. After the war, he exiled himself first to Tyre, and then to Ephesus where he was well received by Antiochus III of Syria, a king of the Greek line, who was preparing for war with Rome.
From Wiki- When Antiochus seemed prepared to surrender him to the Romans, Hannibal fled to Crete, but he soon went back to Asia Minor and sought refuge with Prusias I of Bithynia, who was engaged in warfare with Rome’s ally King Eumenes II of Pergamon. Hannibal went on to serve Prusias in this war. During one of the naval victories he gained over Eumenes, Hannibal had large pots filled with venomous snakes thrown onto Eumenes’ ships. Hannibal also went on to defeat Eumenes in two other battles on land until the Romans interfered and threatened Bithynia into giving up Hannibal. Hannibal also visited Tyre, the home of his forefathers. However the Romans were determined to hunt him down, and they insisted on his surrender.
Hannibal died in 182 BC as the Vernal Equinox aligned with this star, bringing to an end his wiley ways.
And we have already looked at the final star in this series, Mesarthim, and noted that it was the final battle that really broke the back of Greek independence, as Perseus of Macedon was defeated by the Romans, and 300,000 Greek slaves together with most of the Macedonian court were taken as war booty.
