The Pleiades and the
Seventh Ray on the Seventh Day
by Joseph E. Mason


Dreams and coincidences often seem to be related to crop circle formations. This article tells of a very good and important example.

The Barbury Castle triangular crop formation appeared in 1991:

After reading about the formation in The Cerealogist (No. 4, page 24), a series of coincidences started when I opened The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch to page 54, and read:

"And if we examine the "Book of Genesis" involving the seven days of creation, we see that the six fields of light come together so that on the seventh day, the transmutation can be added to the physical chemistry of life.  Therefore, on the seventh aeon of Light, the races which were evolved during the first six aeons of time are superseded by the Seventh Ray, which is the planting of our Adamic household of Kimah (the Pleiades) and Kesil (Orion) intelligence on the planet as a witness to the evolving nations." (see Job 38:31)

It seemed to be a description of the meaning of the Barbury Castle crop circle formation. The six lines in the north sun symbol had the wheatstalks pointing inward toward the center. The "ratchet" or Mercury spiral had six steps flowing from the center to the Southeast corner of the triangle.

I had a dream voice message prior to this, saying that we were still apes; that the great cycle was not over yet; that we would become Man at the end of the cycle.  This concerned an "evolution" metaphor where "apes" signify clown foolish behavior, such as wars. The dream seemed to also suggest that the days of creation are not yet completed.

Not long after this, I was waiting in line at a convenience store, and picked up a tabloid. I flipped to a story about a supposed miracle in Italy. A pilot, taking some Catholic nuns on a mercy mission died of a heart attack. The plane flew the 100 miles by itself, and landed, surrounded by light. The seven nuns stepped out unharmed.

It struck me - the Pleiades are called The Seven Sisters!  I do not know if the story is true, but it was quite a coincidence, and I pay attention to such things. I looked up "Pleiades" in the dictionary. They are the daughters of Atlas and Pleione, placed by Zeus among the stars. Six are readily visible, while the dimmer seventh is called, "The Lost Pleiad."

In mid 1992 I sent a large packet of my material to Roberta Ossana of The Dream Network Journal, which included the above information. She called and told me of a dream she had three weeks prior to receiving the material:

I drove to a house where a large family lived. Seven sisters came out, and one was a foot taller than the others. They had light hair and skin, but then transformed into women with dark hair and dark skin. I asked if they were Mexican or Native American. They said, "Native American."

I joined the family in a room with a rectangular table. There was a mother and father, and one son, who was taking a new wife. The son placed a document on the table, telling of his volunteer work at a prison. The whole family did volunteer work. The new wife was going to be accepted into the family of women, and she would be easily assimilated.

An aperture opened up in the center of the table. In the aperture, we saw a little bird being intimidated by a big bird. The mother spoke, saying, "Soon, my husband will retire, and we will own the bank."

I was overwhelmed with emotions when I head the dream. It seemed to verify by "coincidence" that the concepts were valid. The dream clearly seemed to suggest the "Adamic Household" association with the Pleiades. The Father retiring seemed to indicate the "rest" on the Seventh Day of creation.  

Several years later, another person reported a dream which ended with God serving coffee to the people, dressed in His work clothes.

Karma Association

Owning the bank, I believe, suggests a karmic association, which is often symbolised by money or other valuables. The concept of judgment in the Bible, I believe, corresponds to the concept of karma. This seems to be a learning, purifying experience, rather than a reward/punishment system.  

I had a very spiritual dream of searching for my family and returning home. I was relieved when I realized that I had my charge card with me.  On awakening from the dream, I realized that when one uses a charge card, he or she creates a debt that must be paid later.  Karma was indicated, I felt. Dee had a dream where her father gave her credit card to a man dressed in black.  In other dreams, the dreamer finds that he or she has extra unexpected money on their person or in the bank. The Bible also has verses that symbolically relate money to judgment.  Owning the bank, then, would indicate very good karma.

Trinity Association

The Barbury Castle formation is thought by some to be related to the Trinity. Known symbols of the Trinity are similar. The glyphs at the corners have parallels in alchemical signs, corresponding to:

North - sun, sulfur
Southwest - moon, salt
Southeast - Mercury, quicksilver

Mercury's Greek counterpart, Hermes, was the child of Maia, from whom our month of May derives. She was one of the Pleiades.  

The Book of Job, verse 38:31, speaks of Orion and the Pleiades:

"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?"

The Pleiades may also be indicated in the Book of Isaiah, verse 4:1:  

"And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, . . ."

The verse certainly fits well with Roberta's dream.

In John Michell's article about the formation in The Cerealogist, No. 4, he pointed out that the total square footage of the circles in the Barbury Castle formation added to 31680. He continued:

"In traditional cosmology, 31680 miles was taken to be the measure around the sub-lunary world, and early Christian scholars calculated the number 3168 as emblematic of Lord Jesus Christ. The same number was previously applied to the name of a leading principle in the pagan religion."  

I felt that this added weight to the idea of a Trinity association with the formation.

The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch was written by scientist, Dr. James J. Hurtak, after he had a grand spiritual experience in 1973. The Light Being, Enoch, appeared to him, and took him on a spiritual flight. He learned that the human race may be taking a quantum leap forward into the New Age. In the Prologue of the book, he wrote:

"This is the 'Age of the Holy Spirit' - where the Bride and Creator become one, creating a new peoplehood of trinitized powers who are the 'bearers' of a higher Christed seed unfolding life anew by virtue of this greater union that is without dualistic separation."  

Most of the crop circle formations have appeared in the "Wessex Triangle," one corner of which is Glastonbury, a site that is associated with the legends of the Holy Grail. 

Other researchers have found that when the Barbury Castle triangular pattern is superimposed on a map, it aligns with various ancient sites, one of which is Glastonbury. Barbury Castle itself, is near the center. See:  

Aquarian Triangle
(Earth Healing Work and the Discovery of the Avebury Landscape Pentagram)

The Cycle of Time

The ratchet, or Mercury spiral in the Barbury Castle formation may also indicate a cycle of time of six steps, followed by a seventh. The angle from the center of the triangle to the corner touching the ratchet was at 120 degrees, a tetrahedral point. From that point to the center of the ratchet, the angle was 108 degrees. 108 is a Gematrian number, and is associated with time cycles of 108 x 4 =432, or 1080 years. It is the number of names for the goddess in India. 108 x 120 = 12960, the number of years in half the precession of the equinoxes through the Zodiac signs. Divided by the six arcs, gives 2160, the length of one Age of the Zodiac. This may suggest the period of time between Leo through Pisces. The Sphinx may also indicate this by the head of a man and the body of a Lion. It was probably built in the Age of Leo, over 12,000 years ago, and it faces east, corresponding to the equinox points at that time. Directly behind, at 180 degrees, would be Aquarius.  

About four years after these events, my "code" friend, James Furia, informed me that the sphinx does not face directly toward the east, but is offset by about four-degrees. I remembered that the offsets of the ratchet spiral of the Barbury Castle formation were at 4, 94, 184, and 274 degrees.  An imaginary cross through these offsets would be rotated clockwise four-degrees.  Perhaps this was yet another hint that the pattern was sphinx-related.  

There was an additional clue in the Barbury Castle formation, in the date it appeared, July 17, 1991. According to H.P. Blavatsky, in Isis Unveiled, vol. 2, the Biblical patriarchs represent zodiac signs. For example, Judah is Leo. In Genesis 49:9, he is called a lion's whelp, and he stoops down as a lion and a lioness, i. e., like a sphinx. Noah is Pisces. Look up Genesis 8:4 and find that the Ark landed on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the 7th month. This seems to be an additional clue that the Age of Pisces is ending, and that Aquarius is near, or perhaps already begun.

It is also interesting that 6 x 108 = 648, which was the length of the "double-helix/DNA" formation of 1996.  Messages about a DNA communication are coming from all over the place, including dreams, and "The Keys of Enoch" book.

More recently, a co-worker told me he dreamed this:

I was being driven in an airliner on a highway not far from here by a water treatment plant operator named Andy. We took a detour to the right because of construction work.  I was with my boss, an engineer, and a woman. We were planning to put a new transformer under a grate at the water treatment plant. The woman whispered something into the engineer's ear.

This same man has had other dreams where there are three males (a common theme), counting himself, and in one of them there was a woman broadcasting from her car, and then she changed stations. I asked my friend what highway he was on in the airliner dream. It is some 20 miles from his house, on the highway from Oakdale, California toward Yosemite. It was on the section where highway 120 and 108 run together!

Nostradamus century 10, quatrain 74 may be related:

The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
it will appear at the time of the games of slaughter,
not far from the age of the great millennium,
when the dead will come out of their graves.

Flower and Aperture Dreams

Around 1992 I had a dream of an aperture opening and the Seventh Ray coming in. It changed every particle in Creation. This was immediately followed by a coincidence.

On October 18, 1990, about nine months prior to the appearance of the 1991 Barbury Castle formation, I drew a circle with a six petal daisy-like flower inside (left, above), based on two other dreams (center and right, above). The six petal design is based on six interlocking circles in a ring, similar to the diagram on the right, above. The six-petal design also represented a closed aperture, similar to the center diagram (from a dream in September, 1990). I realized later, that the ideas were similar to the north sun symbol in the Barbury Castle crop circle formation. If only single petal-edges were depicted in the above, left diagram, it would be just like the north glyph of the Barbury Castle formation.

I explained the development of the diagrams above in Part Five of my series of articles, Humanity On The Pollen Path.  

Related Crop Circle Formations

In 1991, two six petal daisy-like crop circle formations appeared (above). There was also an amazing "flower profusion" in England that year. The formation on the right included three single petal-edges, perhaps suggesting a twelve-petal design. Next to the circular pattern was a glyph similar to the Egyptian, "Eye of Horus," an eye with a projection protruding from it.

In August 1993, the Bythorn Mandala crop circle formation appeared (above). The flower-like petals are based on interlocking circles, similar to my dream in 1990.  The formation is similar to symbols of the third chakra, and to a yantra of Kali (see Pollen Path articles and Crop Circle Formations As Chakras.

Around 1994, formations started to appear of six interlocking circles in a ring.  Some call this type of pattern, "The Flower of Life. In 1996 the same type of pattern appeared near Silbury Hill. The outer circles had a smaller diameter than the main circle, which caused a Star of David to appear in the center. In 1994, a corp formation appeared which some have interpreted to represent the Pleiades.

My primary theory about the Great Change is that it is a leap to the Heart chakra level of consciousness evolution by humanity en masse. (See the Pollen Path articles and 11:11 - Humanity's Leap to the Heart Chakra). The Heart chakra is symbolised by a 12-petal lotus, with a Star of David inside.

In another dream around 1992, the angel coming out of the rising sun in Revelation 7 to mark the foreheads was the Lost Pliead, representing the Seventh Ray on the Seventh Day of Creation.

More Dreams

In 1992 I had a dream in which a voice said, "Do you know why? Because of the Power of the Music of the DAWN!" I knew what it was about. It is related to an Andrew Webber song with a similar name, "The Music of the Night." The dream voice message concerned the angel who ascends from the rising sun in Revelation 7, to mark the foreheads. It means the dreams remembered at dawn, at the Dawn of the New Age.

The symbolic mark on the forehead indicates those who pay attention to dreams and other communications at the time of the Great Change. Those who are caught unaware/unawake/dead, will experience a more stressful change involving great fear. This is a purification process, after- which one is pardoned.

This fit with yet another message I received in a dream back in 1990 - "The Keys to the Kingdom, He said, are dreams." Still another seems to be related - "We are on the eve of God's Dream."

All these things were a big surprise to me, because I am not a Christian and never have been. I now believe that all myths and religions have a truth that we will begin to understand as time goes on. The Sacred Symbols will be newly understood.

A few hours after the dream about the Music of the Dawn, I returned some books to the library. I was in a hurry and did not intend to check out any books, but on the way out, my attention was drawn to a little book that looked like a children's story. The "Library Angel" must have been at work, because the book fit with my dream so VERY well. It is, "Dream Feather," by Viento Stan-Padilla.

A little Indian boy is asleep in a cave in the earth, as the sun is arising. "From the white silence, the Sun shared its brilliant song. The song drifted down- ward, tone upon tone, guided by a feather." A feather comes down and points to the boy's forehead. (in Egyptian myths, a feather symbolizes Truth, because it can be so easily blown away. In the Judgment Hall the heart is weighed against the feather).

The boy follows the feather up through the earth, and into a rainbow cloud that pulsed with music from its crystal heart. He passes through a rainbow-colored triangle and then goes up six steps, as he receives new garments, including a diadem with a symbol on his forehead. Then, on the seventh step, there is brilliant golden light.

He awakes in the cave in the earth, with jewels all around. "Dream Feather walked from the cave of secrets out upon the earth. The flame in his heart shown through his eyes as he greeted the Sun with a smile." The chorus of Grandfathers had sung a song at the end, with the concluding lines - "Watch for a Dream Feather and join the circle. When all in each generation have done so, the wheel of light will be complete."
