Hexagons and Saturn

Isn’t it amazing and uncannily synchronous? In the middle of our discussion about the effects of the Saturn-Neptune opposition, suddenly government scientists announce the discovery of an incredible hexagonal vortex on Saturn’s north pole. . . .

The hexagon is found in honeycombs, snowflakes, and crystal structures. . . .

The hexagon is one of the seven structures found in crystal geometry — seven being the number of “classical” planets, days of the week (named after planets), and chakras, to name a few. As I stumbled on that piece of the puzzle, I came across another odd bit of information. Guido von List, a turn-of-the-century occultist, was said to have based his system of the Armanen runes on a hexagonal crystal. “Hagal,” which he called the “mother-rune,” represented the hexagonal crystal itself. According to some modern interpretations, Hagal indicates illness, disruption, and general bad luck, along with setbacks and delays.

Gee, what planetary influence does that sound like?

In the non-natural world, the hexagon is widely used in architecture and design, especially in tile work. There are some great photos on this page, which is part of the geometry curriculum at Dartmouth. What’s especially fascinating is the design using hexagons to create an illusion of three-dimensional cubes.

Illusion. That’s what the material world ultimately is. [Correlating to the influence of Neptune which urges us to reach beyond the boundaries of the material world.] And the cosmic force we associate with Saturn determines the structure of the material plane.

This hexagon covers the entire north pole of the planet and first appeared in photographic images 26 years ago. Atmospheric expert and team member Kevin Baines says “We’ve never seen anything like this on any other planet. Indeed, Saturn’s thick atmosphere where circularly-shaped waves and convective cells dominate is perhaps the last place you’d expect to see such a six-sided geometric figure, yet there it is.”

Hexagons have long been associated with sacred geometry; when the six points of the Seal of Solomon (also called the Star of David) are connected a hexagon is the result. In astrology, the Grand Sextile (six or more planets in sextile formation, such as was seen in the chart for the so-called Harmonic Concordance) is made up of two interlocking Grand Trines. Where the energy of one Grand Trine can get caught in an endless loop, the Grand Sextile creates a flow of endless possibility that must be tapped in order to come to fruition.

I can’t wait to see what information comes from this exciting discovery!
