Uranus

 

As already stated in a previous post, Uranus encompasses the Zodiac Wheel every 84 years. The cycle of 84 years is 12 times the cycle of 7 years.

The Torah commands the Jewish people in the Land of Israel to let the land rest every 7 years; Leviticus Chapter 25, verses 3-4:

Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in the produce.

But in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath before HaShem, thou shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard.

The Torah also commands the Jewish people in the Land of Israel to release all slaves and annul all debts every 7 years; Deuteronomy chapter 15, verse 1:

At the end of every seven years you shall make a release.

We see here that in the Torah the cycle of 7 years is hinged to 2nd house issues: agriculture, money, property and finance.

The first time the Torah mentions the number 7 is the 7th day of the week, the Sabbath; Genesis chapter 2, verses 2-3:

And on the seventh day HaShem finished His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.

And HaShem blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; for He rested on this day from all His work.

Here we see a cycle of 7 days in connection to 6th house issues: work and rest.

Further on the Torah mentions the number 7 in the story of Cain and Hevel. After Cain murders Hevel over a territorial dispute, HaShem chastises Cain. Cain confesses his guilt and begs HaShem for help because he fears retribution. HaShem promises Cain that He will watch over him; Genesis chapter 4, verse 15:

And HaShem said to him [Cain], “Therefore whoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold”.

After that, 7 generations later, Lamech who is a descendant of Cain, accidentally kills Cain, believing that he was a wild animal. When Lamech realizes that it was Cain whom he killed he tells his 2 wives, Ada and Zilla, about the incident; Genesis chapter 4, verses 23-24:

And Lamech said to his wives, “Adah and Zillah, hear my voice ye wives of Lamech, listen to my speech, for I have slain a man for wounding me, and a young man for bruising me. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold”.

Here we see a cycle of 7 generations in connection with 8th house matters: rivalry, territorial disputes, jealousy, vengeance, crime & punishment.

Towards the end of the book of Genesis we read about Pharaoh’s dream heralding 7 years of bounty and thereafter 7 years of famine. Josef, who was sold by his brothers into slavery in Egypt, is released from slavery as a reward for interpreting Pharaoh’s dream. Josef is made treasurer of Egypt; Genesis chapter 41, verse 41:

And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt”.

Here we see a cycle of 7 blessed years and 7 cursed years in connection with both 8th and 12th house matters: rivalry, jealousy, national resources, economy, crime & punishment, dreams and prophesy.

Uranus has to do with 2nd house matters, Neptune has to do with 12th house matters and Pluto has to do with 8th house matters.

Uranus is known as the Star of revolution, rebellion and far reaching social changes. Indeed, if we take a closer look at history we find that wars revolve around territorial conflicts and revolutions are the result of economic inequality. Thus at the root of Uranian outbursts lie land and economy. Therefore we can see Uranus as the Star of territorial and economic changes.

Amethyst, in Hebrew Achlamah, is the tribal stone of Gad. The Hebrew name Achlamah means the Stone of Dreams sicher viagra bestellen. The numerical value (Gematria) of the word Achlamah is 84, the same as the number of the years Uranus takes to complete a cycle around the 12 signs of the zodiac. Thus the Amethyst (Achlamah) is the Stone of Uranus. The numerical value of the name Gad is 7. Also here the numerological connection between the name Gad and the name of the tribal stone, Achlama, can be seen. The mission of the tribe of Gad was pioneering and fraternity.

According to Midrash Talpiot the Amethyst (Achlamah) is good for strengthening the heart as well as giving courage and strength of character. Therefore the Amethyst was traditionally used in ancient Israel as an amulet for warriors to be brave in battle and defeat their enemy.

As Jacob blessed Gad; Genesis chapter 49, verses 19:

Gad, a troop shall troop upon him; but he shall troop upon their heel.

And as Moshe blessed Gad; Deuteronomy chapter 33, verses 20-21:

And to Gad he said “Blessed be He who enlarges Gad; he dwells as a lioness, and tears the arm, and the crown of the head. And he chose the first part for himself, for there a portion of a ruler was reserved; and there came the heads of the people, he executed the righteousness of HaShem, and His ordinances with Israel.

To sum up the connection between the Amethyst (Achlamah) the tribal gemstone of Gad and Uranus: Uranus is the planet of territorial conflict, patriotism and agriculture, and the Amethyst (Achlamah) is the gemstone for soldiers, pioneers and national leaders. Both Uranus and the Amethyst (Achlamah) vibrate the numbers 7, 12, 84.
