A possible meaning of the new star in Norma

New observations using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter array (ALMA) have given astronomers the best view yet of a monster star in the process of forming within a dark cloud. A stellar womb with over 500 times the mass of the Sun has been found — the largest ever seen in the Milky Way — and it is still growing. The embryonic star within the cloud is hungrily feeding on material that is racing inwards. The cloud is expected to give birth to a very brilliant star with up to 100 times the mass of the Sun.

The most massive and brightest stars in the galaxy form within cool and dark clouds but the process remains not just shrouded in dust, but also in mystery . An international team of astronomers has now used ALMA to perform a microwave prenatal scan to get a clearer look at the formation of one such monster star that is located around 11 000 light-years away, in a cloud known as the Spitzer Dark Cloud (SDC) 335.579-0.292.

Spitzer Dark Cloud 335.579-0.292 is a stellar womb containing over 500 times the mass of the Sun — and it’s still growing. Inside this cloud is an embryonic star hungrily feeding on inwardly-flowing material, and when it’s born it’s expected to be at least 100 times the mass of our Sun… a true stellar monster. The location of SDC 335.579-0.292 in the southern constellation of Norma.[1]

Astrologers attempt to discover the meaning of a new planet or deep space object in several ways. One of these is linked to the nature of events that unfolds after its discovery. An example can be the planet Uranus that has been associated with revolutions amongst other things. Uranus was discovered in 1781 followed soon after by the French revolution (1789) that led to a new world order.  A second method requires one to look at the star or constellation in which the object is found. In the case of Uranus it was conjunct the star Betelgeuse, alpha Orion, variously referred to the Warrior (shown with an upraised sword) or the “impious wanderer”. In hindsight we can see how these key phrases are now understood to be a basic character of Uranus – a rebel, a revolutionary who breaks all rules.

Here we attempt to apply the same principle to the discovery of the new star SDC 335.579-0.292 in the southern constellation of Norma.

This constellation, Norma, 'the Carpenter's Square', and its adjoining constellation Circinus, 'Pair Of Compasses for drawing circles', might be taken as a pair. The two together are the emblems of masonry, and the symbol of Freemasonry.

Norma et Regula
the Level and Square

Amongst the Free Masons, the Supreme Being is referred to as the Great Architect of the Universe, which alludes to the use of architectural symbolism within Freemasonry. Freemasons, as speculative masons (meaning philosophical building rather than actual building), use this symbolism to teach moral and ethical lessons of the principles of "Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth;" or as related in France, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity." The fraternity is widely involved in charity and community service activities. [2]

Apart from  emphasizing the meaning of the  constellation in which the new star was discovered, the next requirement is to look at the ecliptic longitude of the star which is 8 Sagittarius. This is conjunct the royal-and-war star Antares [9sa56], the fiery red heart of the sky-Scorpion.

In classical astrology, Antares is the star of war and weaponry, and with expounded meaning, to challenge the established opposing politics (an arena common to the Antares / Aldebaran axis) with tenacious adamancy. This is especially in regard to taking a stand against the established conditions of our personal lives and against the established order or authority directing our lives when those conditions or that authority are no longer in our best interest nor supporting our evolutionary freedom and fulfillment. Antares marks a point of empowerment in sidereal Scorpio, a point of immanation for those who have embraced their initiations and claimed their self-empowerment.  It motivates us to take responsibility for our reality, for the lives we create, and to "take a stand" for our truth and to demonstrably and passionately live it. [3]


It is possible that this star is referring to a growing need for a new kind of  “Free Masonry” that is dedicated to building a new world order  since the existing one no longer supports our evolutionary fulfilment.
