Tarot Death card and 9/11

On Jan. 30, 2011

Marty: In one of my first essays in 1978 I was writing about the druid aspects of Earth Day celebrations in New York, writing for the Philly Daily News. I wrote: "But who, except perhaps the photographer, could have predicted the primal communion of the circle and the square, with the sun trapped on Page One of the New York Daily News on May 4, [1978] between the steel and glass altar pillars of the World Trade Center? Exactly as it was trapped 3,000 years ago between the walls of Stonehenge, as day broke on the summer solstice."

I noticed recently while explaining to a woman about a figure in Dali paintings from 1932 to 1943 that the "Death" card in Tarot contained the exact same expression of sun and towers (far right above the Bishop's head.

Ursa movet molem

"She bear moves the world."

This - the carving in stone of a Russian bear gently moving a ball (the world)- should be considered the rise of Dov Ber of Mezeritch and the rise and return of the orthodoxy to Israel - the restoration of Temple Mount and the "return of the king" will result from that. This carving of the "female bear" - the yin wisdom - on C.G. Jung's crypt in Bollingen which he carved himself. He saw himselph as the spiritual colleague of Dov Ber.

Here is another, Nikolsburger Rebbe of Monsey:

The carvings on Jung's crypt include a horse - Pegasus - considered to be the harbinger of Aquarius. The pimary elements of rising aeon Aquarius should be considered the rise of the Mormons (yang) and Hari Khrishna (yin - including the very popular Dali Lams)- as Tibet is dispursed to the western states (" . . . land of the red faced men" in its prophecy) Jerusalem is reconverged with restoration of Temple Mount and rise of king.
