We have strong Mars energies present at the end of August, and this will likely continue through the end of 2020. On August 24, we have the first energetic peak of Mars square Saturn, and we will see two more peaks on September 29th and January 12th.
We can also feel the momentum of Mars Retrograde coming on as the planet is slowing towards coming to a stop. Mars retrograde actually happens on September 9th through November 12th, but we will feel its effects long before and after. I also note in the broadcast the significance of the numbers 9/9 (September 9th) as a theme of completion, resolution, & leadership for transformation.
Finally and powerfully I discuss how the messages and lessons of Mars (which include energetic integrity as well as being aware of how we use our energy) invite us to reconnect to our ancestors and to one of the most ancient yet still surviving cultures on our planet: the Dogon Tribe of Africa. The Dogon are potentially one of the only people who have mangled to stay separate from the "revolution of progress" that is our modern society. As such they hold keys and wisdom for us as we traverse these times of transformation. I discuss the Dogon's knowledge of Sirius in the board cast, but also want to share a but more about their understanding of the creation of humanity. You will find it below.
An old Dogon legend tells of when the God of the universe, Amma, sent the Nommo to earth. This was a half-man, half-amphibian creature which landed in a place northeast of Bandiagara, in the Mopti region; the Nommo was red, but when it touched the ground it became white.
To the right you will see "Mali", a Dogon container. This container shows the "Ark of the world", in which Nommo, the mythical progenitor of humanity, is supposed to have come down from the sky. (source)
The name Nommo derives from a Dogon word that translates as “to do well”; much more often, however, this is remembered as “The Master of Water” (perhaps a reference to the fact that the Nommo could not survive out of water).
From oral tradition, the Dogon confirmed their affiliation with extraterrestrial bodies which visited earth some years ago. According to them, amphibious beings (or mermaids and mermen) from the Sirius system known as Nommos, visited earth. The Nommos lived on a planet that rotated around other stars in the Sirius system.
While we do not yet know exactly how all of this may have unfolded, it is worth noting that other very similar creatures appeared in different cultures - not only geographically distant but also with respect to various historical moments.
In the image to the left we can see that the same type of creature is present in a history of Mesopotamia written during the III Century BC from the priest Beroso; his name was Oannes, his body was similar to that of a fish, he lived only in water, and had feet similar to those of man.
As I mention in the broadcast, take a look at the similarities between the Dogon (Africa) and Anasazi (US) cliff dwellings. Clearly both have been here for a long time and have much wisdom to share.
