Star of Boötes
NGC - 19242
Magnitude - 0.2
Tropical Zodiac position - 23°Libra38´
the fourth brightest star in the heavens, is the one of the
closest bright stars at 37 light years from our Solar system.
It is 115 times brighter than our Sun. Arcturus is a large
clear beautiful sparkling light orange K-type star, easily
seen in the northern Sky in the Constellation Boötes
- the hunter/gatherer - from the Greek word meaning Herdsman.
Boötes, the son of Demeter, Goddess of the Earth and
Harvest, and was rewarded with a place in the sky for inventing
the plough drawn by two oxen. Another legend tells it as -
Boötes, known as Arcas, (Arcturus) the son of Zues and
beautiful nymph Callisto. Callisto was changed into a bear
by Zeus to shield her from his jealous wife Hera. When Callisto
was almost killed by her son, as he was out hunting, Zeus
rescued her taking her into the sky where she became Ursa
Major, the Great Bear, (also known as the plough or big dipper
in modern times). Boötes is said to be herding the Great
Bear with the dogs of nearby Canes Venatici driving the Great
Bear of Ursa Major (Big Dipper) and the Little Bear (Ursa
Minor, or the "Little Dipper").
being the brightest star in the northern sky is outstanding
in its own region and thus dominates the constellations around
Boötes and comes from the Greek meaning "guardian
of the Bear". Sometimes Arcturus is seen to flicker incessantly
when low on the horizon and has a large actual proper motion,
moving in the sky quite rapidly. Astronomers claim it has
moved twice the Moon's apparent diameter in the past 2000
years, says David H Levy, who found Comet Levy near Arcturus
one evening in 19871. 1987
was The Year of the Harmonic Convergence - a Consciousness
awakening and beginning of the Earth's modern day Ascension
Process. This exceptional proper motion of Arcturus, relative
to the background stars, means its movement through the Galaxy,
approaching us at a rate of 5 kilometres per second, will
inevitably see it pass us and shift from Boötes to Virgo
and drop from the naked eye visibility in half a million years.
It is a Population II star belonging to the galactic halo,
so that its orbit is sharply inclined, and it is now cutting
through the main plane of the Galaxy. Earth will have ascended
and the Eight pointed star are visual representations of the
Arcturus Connection, and you can find many references to that.
A different approach - 'the Cosmic Bow & Arrow', the light-worker,
the bringer of a balance in 100% light quotient. Arcturus
embodies the daring to strike out and take a new path. To
try a new method. To go in a direction that has not been travelled
before and expand the horizon in knowledge, love and service
visual impression of Arcturus jumped out from David H Levy's
book in December 1995, a week or so after I had been connected
for the first time consciously to the Arcturian Connection
through a wondrous channelled message through an interpreter
who guided my awakening to the work of the Arcturians. This
was an extraordinary series of events for me at that time.
Worth reading, is the book 'We the Arcturians'2
the above legend as - the cosmic worker dedicated to light
up, put love & service to all the Earth. The Arcturians
call Earth 'Terra' and love all beings at all dimensions and
service is their business for The Power Of One, - description
from Atlantis times. (God or Greater Good).
