Rise of the Ape Virgin

Last week 16 August Virgin resonators jumped out of the woodwork upon noting Steve Carell and Madonna share Birthdays.
Another 16 August Birthday boy is James Cameron who entrains with Carell (Noah in Evan Almighty) by being famous for his Giant Boat/Ark movie Titanic. The Titanic sank on its maiden or "virgin" voyage.
A week later on 22 of August Kate Winslet makes headlines having saved Richard Branson's, Virgin founder, mom from a burning building. Above she and Branson are fooling around recreating the "Jack, I feel like I'm flying!" scene from Titanic.
The next day August 23 and we enter Virgo the astrological sign of the Virgin maiden...
A rare east coast earthquake hits the US in Virginia, felt across a dozen states and multiple Canadian provinces.
The Washington Monument, a giant modern representation of an Egyptian Obelisk, sustained a crack during the Quake in the top most section or Capstone area.
Wikipedia tells us:

The obelisk symbolized the sun god Ra, and during the brief religious reformation of Akhenaten was said to be a petrified ray of the Aten, the sundisk. It was also thought that the god existed within the structure.
Egyptian Obelisk

We imagine Ra being released by this crack in his monument...
The Obelisk had an earlier progenitor in ancient Egypt called the Benben stone. This pillar or mound was the home of the Bennu bird, said to be the soul of Ra, who topped the sacred phallic object. The capstone part of the Obelisk, cracked on 23 August during the Virginia quake, is thus associated to the resting place of the Bennu whose modern parallel is the Phoenix.
We can easily imagine again how the crack in the Washington Monument is the portal of the Phoenix, splitting to let out the soul of God.
Wiki on Bennu:
Some of the titles of the Bennu bird were “He Who Came Into Being by Himself,”
Wiki Bennu

The Phoenix rising from its own ashes is analogous to the Virgin Birth and thus Virgo.
How perfect that this same day seeing the start of Virgo and the split of the Capstone - home of the Phoenix - is the Birthday of the late River Phoenix.
Virgo is particularly relevant to Washington DC and its Obelisk. David Ovason has pointed out the city was designed with numerous zodiacs and monuments with specific & overt emphasis on Virgo.

"The cornerstone for the Washington Monument was laid at the north-east corner of the foundation in the early afternoon of 4 July 1848. As I have indicated, probably one reason why the Masons chose to lay the stone in the afternoon was because they wished to allow the all-important Virgo to become operative in the chart. Shortly before lunchtime on that day, the Moon went into Virgo"
p 153 The Secret Zodiacs of Washington DC - David Ovason

An individual who is waking up into knowledge of self will undergo ceremonial drama - conscious or otherwise - fitting the temperament and psycho-spiritual associations this individual has with enlightenment and such affairs. The environment - a conscious facet of the self being realized - will self organize, accommodating the needed ritualistic elements to satisfy the criteria so desired by the person becoming conscious of I Am.
In exactly the same way the collective self of Earth is also undergoing initiation into self Nosis via the drama and ritual we call world events.

While Bennu is the common name given to the bird in English, the original vowels of the name spelled as bnn by Egyptian scribes are uncertain, although it may have been pronounced something like *bānana.
Wikipedia Bennu

We see that Bennu/Phoenix (thus Virgin/Virgo) shares resonance with Banana the favorite fruit of monkeys. The association with the "Bird that Rises" and the Banana works well with phallic connotations of the fruit and Washington Monument associated to the Bennu.
Will Morgan aka @satoriallme noted yesterday on twitter that Tim Burton's 2001 version of Planet of the Apes has Mark Whalberg crash landing on The Mall of DC in front of the Ape version of Lincoln with the Washington Monument in the background.
Whalberg's huge Banana is the focus of film Boogie Nights.
Perfectly 'N Sync we note today, 24 August, is Tim Burton's birthday who also made Mars Attacks where UFO's topple the Washington Monument onto a troupe of Boyscouts.
UFO's and aliens symbolize Cosmic Consciousness, coming from the Stars and Heaven, another metaphor for self realization. The saucer toppling the pillar is the symbolic equivalent of what happened yesterday for real in DC.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes deals with monkey revolution, evolution & a virus outbreak. The virus carrying monkey in Outbreak arrives in the US by boat/ark with the Golden Gate bridge looming, a major setting of the similar Rise of The Planet of the Apes.

The spreading of the deadly virus is symbolic of the ego destroying "threat" of rising consciousness. We inaccurately identify our bodies, lives and the world with the self thus fearing and dramatizing the destruction of these. Tellingly we enjoy these films as they show the symbolic disillusion of the false self.
Our lives, bodies and the world are cherished and sacred facets of consciousness but only the event horizon from which we leap into the infinite.
In Outbreak the disease spreads from the movie theater. Sync is helping realize consciousness, the movie screen having become a potent tool for waking us up to the interconnected and inseparable nature of all existence.
Having entrained with Virgin the day before the Virginia Quake its worth noting Kate Winslet herself is in an upcoming virus film strengthening this theme.

Contagion is released September 9, 2 days shy of the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, the most famous dramatic self realization Mega Ritual.
Last year during Virgo we saw Easy A (and The Towns nuns) entrain with Virgo. Emma Stone was the Virgin claiming to be a harlot in order to become popular at her high school.

See The Rabbit Whole
Our Virgin Emma Stone returns in Virgo with just what out troubled world needs "The Help", the number 1 film in theaters right now. The tagline reads "Change begins with a whisper." making me wonder if these potent signs are relatively small in comparison to what is coming.

Updates pending, flux willing.

Take care.

Cloud Nine: "Ah, Venice"

I had this weird dream that Jake Kotze and I were looking for Lions. With all the crazy shit going into my head I was thinking this could easily be understood as just sub conscious regurgitation. Of no importance. However that night Ghost and The Darkness was on. I am getting messages here, time to pay attention. I only saw a little bit of Darkness but I did see this guy tore down by a lion.

Something about his voice totally gave me brain movies and I instantly realized that the actor was this guy in Rob Roy.

Brain McCardie his name. I mean the actor not the Character. See in Darkness he is preaching about Jesus with his hands slashed by thorns and then the next day is killed by a symbol of god the Lion.
