They make much of the music I use in many of my Youtube videos. It is music from Balanced Records recording artist DJ Brace and his Electric Nosehair Orchestra (Nostomania is the album) that I used to score my collaborative video with Jake Kotze called starMummy. When I edit, I am incredibly influenced by the music I use, so in many ways the magic of starMummy is very much enhanced and driven by the work of DJ Brace.
Canada's very own music awards show named after Juno who is an ancient Roman Goddess that was Zeus/Jupiter/Tin's wife ( and who also happened to be his sister, as they where both fathered by Saturn).
I like how the award is a statue of a blue/crystal clear androgynous being entwined in in a helix.
Nelly Furtado below is feeling the Jupiter Vibe for sure.
In 2009, JUNO, the Mother Goddess is giving a nod to starMummy with her recognition of the musician behind the score. As I sit here editing the sequel I take it as clear communication.
The next day after hearing the news about Brace's JUNO nomination, I head off to the school I am stationed at for that particular day. I realize at the school its name is JUNIPER. A Juniper is a very common berry of this area that is used for both medicine and nutrition. Juniper seems like a cross between Jupiter and Juno. Both words making their way into my consciousness one after the other made me take notice, and so as I followed this Thompson thread further...
All around the school there are syncs - Juniper syncs. I find this very timely and refreshing, as it seems the feminine side of Jupiter is making itself known to me. Balance is good. (It is fitting that this sync thread started with an email from my friends at BALANCED records.)
A poster for a Juniper Valentine's Dance (Heart Day otherwise now known as Galactic Centre Day)
School uniforms and signs for the Juniper Jaguars.
What Jaguars have to do with Northern Manitoba beats me. Black Jaguars roam the forests of the Amazon as well as the dream world. Perhaps the Black Jaguar is roaming the dreamscape of the people of Thompson, Manitoba.
Maestro Flores has explained to me how he can turn into a Jaguar. It seems like he has been involved in some groundwork for my trip here in the North.
As I research further into the meaning of Juno, Juniper and Jupiter, I learn that the Etruscan name for Juno, Jupiter's wife, is UNI. I feel like I will have to look deeper into Etruscan mythology and history as its these people that use TIN as a name for Jupiter. The name UNI makes me think of UNION, which is a merge of UNI (Jupiter) and ON, which can also be transformed into OZ. The UNION is the JUPITER OZ. Which is also JU OZ or JUNO (right back where we started).
It was a nice sync wink to realize that Juniper school was a jUNIor high-school, as this sign cued me. The blue background and the wavy designs give the sign a distinctly Aquarian flavor. Jupiter on high. (I am sure there is a syncnificance for the word Hindenburg on the sign, but it escapes me right now.)
In one of the classrooms at Juniper School I snap a picture of an 8 rayed sNOWflake hanging from the ceiling.
During my stay in Thompson we where hit with a massive sNOWstorm. At least 40 cm of sNOW in a few days. It got me thinking a lot of snow, winter and the NOW. In indigenous tradition, sNOW and winter is considered a healing blanket for Mother Earth. It is connected to the North and the Night. I was taught by the Cree Elder, Don Cardinal, that White is the colour of Winter and the colour of the North. It is the colour of our sleep and entry into the dreamworld - a time like winter, and death, when our body temperature actually lowers.
During the blizzard I felt like NOW was falling from the sky.
During the first couple weeks of my stay in Thompson, a bunch of Truck drivers testing out some new rigs, where staying at the same hotel as me. All their license plates had RA on them. The pentagram was front and centre as well. Perhaps that is why they chose to stay at the Days Inn with me, a company whose logo just screams sun worship. (I like the blue rays added on that almost seem like roots for the Yellow sun above.)
At the same day that I am following the Juniper thread I notice that on the classroom door I am working out of it says 142. Now, for those that have been following this blog, you would know that 42 for me connects to Jupiter and Tin. (Please read The Tinman's Rainbow Lodge and the Gnosis of 42 to get some background.) Basically, I just feel like the alchemical symbol for Jupiter/Tin looks like it has a 4 and a 2 in in it.
Thanks to Jake I now realize that it also has a 1 in it. So a 4, a 2, and a 1. The same numbers on my classroom door.
The same numbers on the classroom door the next day at a different school.
The same numbers on my hotel room door.
The same numbers that make up the cost of Jake's bus ticket from Winnipeg to Thompson. Now the 1 seemed to have syncnificant place with the 4 and 2, which I have been writing about for awhile. Now, the 2 for 1 logo for the pizza line of Robin's Donuts, seemed to make sense finally.
Of course, through Jake's work we have already seen syncnificance with Robins, Donuts and Pizzas. The 241 sign only cemented it all for me. Of course now that I could see deeper into the sign I noticed the two pizza circles on the logo crossing each other to make a Vesica Piscis.
The 241 Christ being born out of the Vesica portal to the NOW.
This last weekend Jake bused up here for a visit. One thing we did, beyond hash out our next video collaboration, was visit the Thompson Zoo.
Please check out Blackdogstar for insight into the syncnificance of paws, dogs, wolves and stars. I was specifically interested in visiting the zoo to meet the two wolves there. I knew one of them was an Arctic Wolf named Neige, which is sNOW in english. I wanted to make a tobacco offering to her and to acknowledge the wolf spirit while in Thompson, a town clearly influenced by the Wolf.
I have been taught that the teaching of the wolf is humility. It has also dawned on me recently that wolf is flow backwards.
To be humble is to flow.
The zoo was mostly outside and it was a super cold day (-40 C).
sNOW and her friend (name unknown at the point of taking this picture) look rather bored. We say hi and offer tobacco and prayers to them.
After seeing the other animals we head into the Zoo's building that says it is open for visitors. Inside it is decorated with red hearts due to Valentine's day that just passed. One of the first things I notice are the Peacocks. Peacocks!
The Elixir of Life right here at the Thompson Zoo.
Little did I know, but a peacock is just the male bird, the breed is actually known as Peafowl.
Pea Fowl. Pea Wolf. Pea Flow. Back to the flow we go...
As I head to leave the building I notice the sign with all the animals names on it. I look at the wolves as I want to know what the Timber wolf's name is. His name as you can see below is ZEUS. Jolly Jupiter Batman! I ask the attendant about the wolf and she says his name is Zeus, but she calls him Papa (father). I tell her that's perfect.
Of course Zeus's mate is a white wolf known as sNOW. A perfect pot of Gold at the end of a sync rainbow.
I am out for a walk yesterday and decide to take some video of the wolf statues that decorate the streets of Thompson. I notice beside these four wolves that there is a sNOWmobile made by Polaris, whose logo is an 8 rayed star. Frank Albo has mentioned to me how the 8 rayed star in the Manitoba Legislature is a symbol for Polaris (as well as Venus and Galactic Centre - Go figure!).
I find the slogan for Polaris very mysterious as well.
THE WAY OUT. Hmmm....Polaris clearly is communicating as this picture below taken by Jake shows as well. A light fixture by a company called Polaris that is being used to light up the Pool of the Black Star aka the star of Polaris.
The wolf statues are kind of nice. One of these is called Starry Wolf Night.
The last evening before Jake took off back South to Winnipeg, we drive to a huge wolf mural on one of the apartment buildings.
The building is known as the Highland Tower. It's logo is a 8 rayed star. There is Polaris and the wolf again, just like the sNOWmobile and the wolf statues I visited an hour prior.
...and the restaurant Jake and I tried to go to on the last night, but was closed because it was a holiday. Riverview, or as the image shows, The Peacock (ape flow) and the Dragon (2012).
Here is a video I made of my flowing time in Thompson, Manitoba. The song used is called the Wolf song by the Red Shadow Singers, an aboriginal drum group here in Manitoba.
