2013 ~ Year of Ophiuchus & the Chinese Water Snake

OphScopes2013 leftalign

Dear Scorpio-Ophiuchus Natives,

Being Ophiuchus or Scorpius is a precious New Age gift. But the gift that is you comes with unique responsibilities of an extra-dimensional nature that still have to be unwrapped, taken out of the box, and the new quantum-you assembled. Otherwise, you’re a flower bud that did not open, a tree that produced no fruit, a natural born genius that chose not to put his or her innate talents to use, a sperm that did not find and fertilize the ovum.

No harm, no foul. It’s your life. The choices are yours to make. Perhaps you’re just an observer this time around.

But if your Soul Agenda calls for you to be activated and do your thing here, 2013 is the year it will all come together for those Ophiuchus and Scorpius natives who have done and are doing their due diligence (research), their homework (physical plane exercises), and developmental energy work.

The same principle applies to anyone with planets or asteroids in these Magical constellations.

You have been called and you have chosen to respond to a quantum-calling by the Cosmos in response to a dire need in this Galaxy and Solar System to attend the beautiful watery biological ecosystem we know as Gaia or Planet Earth.

It’s work. It’s a job. It’s a Mission Impossible. And that’s the reality of it. So I don’t want anybody coming back to me disillusioned next year because the Big Year I’m about to talk about turned out to be a disappointment. That only happens when we’re in “what’s in it for me” mode, collecting love conquests, money and toys and expecting to be handed “all the good things in life” because we’re so special.

You’re not here to have fun. You’re here to rise to the challenge of transcending the limitations of the Flesh (again) and bringing meaningful change to a planet teeming with life. If you can. Your gifts are subtle, intangible, infinite, and eternal. Many of you have returned with your gifts intact, ready to work — and that’s why you’re here. Others need to develop their gifts.

  • See Mark Amaru Pinkham’s book The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom. The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom tracks the influence on this planet of a group of enlightened beings of extraterrestrial origin. The book is a tool for students of ancient hermetic/esoteric wisdom, people interested in Atlantis and Lemuria, and anyone interested in the symbolism of the serpent from ancient times. It is a historical and cultural survey of serpents, dragons, and other tangential topics. Some of the material is unverifiable by Third Dimensional strictly physical-world means so it is recommended on a “for your Discernment” basis. The material will resonate with you or not.

I also need to note for the record, it does not necessarily follow that all Scorpio and Ophiuchus natives are Returning Serpents of Wisdom. It’s safe to assume that some natives are merely seeking their first such experience, for example like Asclepius who was mortal born and trained under Chiron the Centaur.

Everybody has to start somewhere.

2013 – Year of Coming Together

The numeration of the year 2013 adds up to the single digit 6.


6 is a Solar number, the Heart of the Tree of Life, and the Key to the Wisdom Path of Duality Seeking Unity. We can apply these ideas to Ophiuchus in 2013 in multiple ways.

  • The Year the Male and Female aspects of Ophiuchus merge to co-create and activate the Ether element (the synthesis that is rather the source of all elements before they are broken down in the Duality that exists below the Abyss)
  • The Year of Asclepius and the Serpent being celebrated as a Unity as indeed
    • Constellations Ophiuchus and Serpens are considered by many Astronomers to be a single constellation and
    • the Master Healer is known in many indigenous traditions to take form in the body of a Serpent when traversing the physical plane and
    • as the Serpent is known to many to virtually be the Sophia – Wisdom
  • The Year the co-dependency of Scorpio and Ophiuchus is acknowledged on the numerous levels at which these two Archetypes relate to each other
  • The Year the Scorpion is morphed into the body of a Serpent and Merged into a fully empowered triplex of Constellations whose aim and imperative is to Heal and bring Wisdom, thus:
    • OPHIUCHUS the body of the Serpent Holder, the Astrologically-unacknowledged 13th Zodiac Constellation
    • SERPENS the Northern Serpent of Wisdom — a dragon-serpent, resonating as it does with Constellation Draco in the North — lying North of the Zodiac Belt, North of the Equator and North of the Galactic Equator, and crowned by Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown
    • SCORPIUS as Ophiuchus’s Southern Serpent of Wisdom (Water Snake) lying South of the Equator, South of the Zodiac Belt, and South of the Galactic Equator, crowned by Corona Australis, the Southern Crown which is also South of the Galactic Equator.
  • See Unveiling the New Planetary Caduceus for details and maps

So, what is your Mystery Path Mission this year? Add the Month and Date of your Birth to the number 6 and reduce it down until all you have left is a number less than or equal to 22. If it’s double digits, add the double digits together.

A 22 becomes zero (there is no 22nd Trump in the Major Arcana but there is an Atu 0 – the Fool) and a 4. Then look up the information on the Hermetic Path you’re traveling this year. It’s not difficult to do now that we have such a wealth of information hanging out to be plucked from the Tree of Information we call the Internet. Just be careful the “Information” you find is not “DIS-information.” Join a discussion group if you need help learning how to tell the difference.

The Star Family Calling

Speaking to the guys first, the biggest challenge is yours because you have bigger shoes to fill.

According to mythology, Divine Master Physicians Asclepius, Jesus Christ and Imhotep never lost a patient to death. So you are tasked with seeing what you can do now with an entire planetary ecosystem that harbors a species of life that has the potential to (and probably already has) spread its cancerous, suicidal, genocidal mind set outside the parameters of its Solar System containment to contaminate the Galaxy and Universe-at-Large.

It’s a pretty big responsibility. The evolution of your Soul Group depends upon your efforts. You are not here to play games with the natives anymore. You’re working at the Planetary Logos level. The Eyes that are on you this time around are not Human. All you have to do is find your Soul Frequency and activate your Higher Self.

What do you mean, “all you have to do”? Yikes! That’s a very tall order indeed, Miss Donna!  😉

Are you up for this challenge?

Yes we are. Why do you think we came here?

Alright, then let’s get cracking!

With reference to the fe-male Ophiuchus natives, your role supplies the underlying power without which nothing the male Ophiuchus natives do will be able to effect meaningful change. Because historically speaking it’s been about the men for so long, what we’re looking at on this planet today is the result of the cancer of gender-biased imbalance that has reigned unchecked for untold thousands, perhaps millions of Earth years. Judging by the massive ruins at the bottom of the Earth’s oceans, I’d hazard a guess that this energy imbalance situation has quite possibly been plaguing the planet for an unspecified number of Galactic years as well.


Caduceus, Angel of Healing by Dec. 1 Ophiuchus Sculptor James N. Muir

The revival of Goddess that has occurred within the greater energy body by release of the corpus of hidden and secret Earth history preserved and returned in Constellation Ophiuchus (Truth & Disclosure) has been more important to this planet than the Second Coming of Jesus, the Third Coming of Asclepius, or the latest Return of Quetzalcoatl.

Believe it.

Now, at this time I’ll ask everyone to check their gender attitudes at the door. You can’t imagine my shock when I awoke in this lifetime in a female body. So I want you all to know that some of us have been switched and some of us are multi-gendered, hermaphrodite or androgyne for very strategic reasons and we need to get to the bottom of our sexuality issues without delay and put them all behind us.

We are in a Unification Year and the turning point of this planet’s health and future depends upon how we handle our sexuality inside our bodies so that the Ophidian Current (Serpent Fire, Serpent Power, Kundalini, New Planetary Kundalini) can enter and not burn us alive.

The goal in this Round is to bring the Constellation Triplex to achieve Ether reception & transmission state.

Ophiuchus Star Gates & 2013

As Ophiuchus Consciousness was building up to co-create its breakthrough moment (release into Mass Consciousness via Mainstream Media) before 12/21/2012, the Heart of the Sun was really pumping hard and Solar Cycle #23 was off the charts. Scientists were worried about the future of the planet should Solar Cycle #24 be even stronger. But that was not in the cards apparently.

Solar Star Cycle #24 activity through 2012 has been quite low. Either there were not enough Scorpio-Ophiuchus energy pairings to be able to handle Logos-grade New Planetary Kundalini (Serpent Fire) from the Sun, or the Galaxy didn’t release the Planet Killer Wave designed to wipe Humanity off the map — again — as predicted by the Mayans — because Ophiuchus has been activated and the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy is turning the tide.

Which is it? I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and watch the signs day by day …

SOLAR CYCLE UPDATE: 2013 is only days away, and according to most forecasters, Solar Max should be approaching as well. But is it? Barely-increasing sunspot counts and anemic solar activity suggest an interesting possibility: Perhaps Solar Max is already here. This plot of measured vs. predicted sunspot numbers illustrates the idea:

The blue curve traces monthly sunspot numbers measured since 2000. The red curve is the prediction of the NOAA-led Solar Cycle Prediction Panel. So far, Solar Cycle 24 is underperforming even compared to the panel’s low expectations.

There is still a strong chance that Cycle 24 will rebound and peak in 2013 as expected. It might even be a double-peaked cycle like the cycle before it. As 2013 nears only one thing is certain: we don’t know what will happen. Stay tuned.

There are at least two Ophiuchus Star Gates. The 12:12 Ophiuchus Star Gate went through its final readiness processes over several days in 2012, peaking on December 12-13, 2012.

The 13:13 Gateway was aligned and activated in 2011.

Because this Gateway responds to the trans-solar Frequency 13, we look to celestial alignments to tell us what the timing is. Its first peak usage moment now that it is open is something we have to look forward to in 2013.

There will be more to report on that topic when we get closer to the Time.

Scorpio-Ophiuchus 2013 – the Mission

The numerous pre 2012 Ophiuchus Initialization stages culminated on December 12-13, 2012 with the final integral Ophiuchus Energy Realignment occurring when the Quetzalcoatls Soul Family Branch was formally fitted onto the Ophiuchus Family Tree as the Mayan Calendar expired on December 21, 2012, as per the Plan.

The retrieval of Quetzalcoatl1 marks the first frame of the next cycle of Ophiuchus work. Quetzalcoatl is the main player now, the energy field and bundle of issues we have to work with and focus on as we face the tricky part of the work.

In the truest sense, Power has no moral value. God-Goddess-All That Is, being One thing and One thing only, harbors no distinction between one thing and any other thing, and that applies most especially to our concepts of good and evil.

So whether what’s going on here on Earth is good or evil is a matter of perception, perspective, judgment, and who believes they are entitled to be the judge.

Where you stand on this question and what view you take is biased by your Lower Minded thoughts and feelings. What’s evil? Murder? We take a life every time we harvest a plant or kill an animal to put dinner on the table thinking we have been given dominion over the so-called Lower Kingdoms.

There are Higher Kingdoms of Life looking in on us and they must view us the same way we view the Lower Kingdoms or people wouldn’t be suffering Alien abductions, anal probing, population control devices such as war, genocide, Mass Mind manipulation and hypnotic media designed to addict hoards of people to the chemicals and nutritional-value-zero “foodstuffs” at MacDonald’s and Jack-in-the-Box.

The Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy and the Alchemy of the Eagle-Condor Prophecy are the agenda items next on the List. The Mayan Branch of the Ophiuchus Family Tree represented by Quetzalcoatl facilitates this next leg of the Mission and the Work.

This is where Humans are either Healed and shed the bloodshed and horror Mindset that the Human species is capable of and has been Practicing with and without help from the Co-Creators of the various Human families, or not. Stacks over stacks of abandoned civilizations thousands and millions of years old lie at the bottom of Earth’s Oceans and beneath overgrown jungles worldwide to demonstrate the last-case scenario.

Which Road is Humanity taking this time? The High Road or the Road to Destruction one more time?

The 2013 Watch List

1. Year of the Chinese Water (Black) Snake

The Chinese New Year of the Water Snake begins on February 10, 2013.

Take some time to think about this leisurely, like you’re tasting a rare wine. What we’re really looking at is not just the Year of Ophiuchus, but the Year of Scorpio-Ophiuchus, the Serpent Holder and the Serpent as a team, just like the constellations Scorpius and Ophiuchus as they exist along the Belt of the Zodiac.

What does the Snake have to to with Scorpius? Everything.

The snake ranks sixth of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Snake are the most intuitive, even while remaining the most private and reticent. Snake people represent the symbol of wisdom. They are intelligent and wise. Snake people are usually regarded as great thinkers.

Snakes are materialistic and love keeping up with the Joneses. They love to posses the best of everything, but they have no patience for shopping. Snake people prefer to work alone, therefore they are easily stressed; if they seem unusually stressed, it is best to allow them their own space and time to return to normal.


Snakes prefer living a peaceful life, and they do not like a noisy environment. Snakes become easily stressed when their lives aren’t calm or in order. Therefore, a manageable workload would be good for them rather than a schedule of over workload. They need to spend lots of time to relax themselves. It’s necessary to take vacation at a proper time. People should pay attention to the health of snake people, especially senior members in the family.


Snakes are very creative and extremely diligent. Though snakes work very hard, they have a tendency to be job-hoppers for they will easily become bored. Snakes are great thinkers. Complex problems stimulate them. And of course they’re excellent problem-solvers and thrive under tight deadlines. Good career choices for Snakes include: scientist, analyst, investigator, painter, potter, jeweler, astrologer, magician, dietician, and sociologist.


People born in the year of the snake do not have a lot of friends. It is extremely hard to get to know them because they keep their feelings locked up inside. The snake will be careful in choosing friends. They will never forgive a breach in the friendship. Once people are friends, a Snake is willing to share his sorrow and happiness with them. Snake people guard their chosen friends much like valuable possessions, and they easily jealous and even obsessive.


Best with: Ox or Rooster
Worst with: Tiger, Monkey or Pig

2. The biggest star of 2013? ISON – the comet of the century

‘Brighter than a full moon’: The biggest star of 2013… could be Ison – the comet of the century

A comet discovered by two Russian astronomers will be visible from Earth next year. Get ready for a  once-in-a lifetime light show, says David Whitehouse

* * *

Ison’s surface is very dark – darker than asphalt – pockmarked and dusty with ice beneath the surface. It’s a small body, a few tens of miles across, with a tiny pull of gravity. If you stood upon it you could leap 20 miles into space taking over a week to come down again, watching as the comet rotated beneath you. You could walk to the equator, kneel down and gather up handfuls of comet material to make snowballs, throw them in a direction against the comet’s spin and watch them hang motionless in front of you. But it will not remain quiet on Comet Ison for the Sun’s heat will bring it to life.

By the end of summer it will become visible in small telescopes and binoculars. By October it will pass close to Mars and things will begin to stir. The surface will shift as the ice responds to the thermal shock, cracks will appear in the crust, tiny puffs of gas will rise from it as it is warmed. The comet’s tail is forming.

Slowly at first but with increasing vigour, as it passes the orbit of Earth, the gas and dust geysers will gather force. The space around the comet becomes brilliant as the ice below the surface turns into gas and erupts, reflecting the light of the Sun. Now Ison is surrounded by a cloud of gas called the coma, hundreds of thousands of miles from side to side. The comet’s rotation curves these jets into space as they trail into spirals behind it. As they move out the gas trails are stopped and blown backwards by the Solar Wind.

By late November it will be visible to the unaided eye just after dark in the same direction as the setting Sun. Its tail could stretch like a searchlight into the sky above the horizon. Then it will swing rapidly around the Sun, passing within two million miles of it, far closer than any planet ever does, to emerge visible in the evening sky heading northward towards the pole star. It could be an “unaided eye” object for months. When it is close in its approach to the Sun it could become intensely brilliant but at that stage it would be difficult and dangerous to see without special instrumentation as it would be only a degree from the sun.

Remarkably Ison might not be the only spectacular comet visible next year. Another comet, called 2014 L4 (PanSTARRS), was discovered last year and in March and April it could also be a magnificent object in the evening sky. 2013 could be the year of the great comets.

As Comet Ison heads back to deep space in 2014 the sky above it would begin to clear as the dust and gas geysers loose their energy. Returning to the place where the Sun is a distant point of light, Comet Ison may never return. Its tail points outward now as the solar wind is at its back, and it fades and the comet falls quiet once more, this time forever.

Dr David Whitehouse is an author and astronomer.

C/2012 S1

C/2012 S1 (ISON) is a sungrazing comet discovered on 21 September 2012 by Vitali Nevski (Виталий Невский, Vitebsk, Belarus) and Artyom Novichonok (Артём Новичонок, Kondopoga, Russia). The discovery was made using the 0.4-metre (16 in) reflector of the International Scientific Optical Network near Kislovodsk, Russia and the automated asteroids discovery program CoLiTec . Precovery images by the Mount Lemmon Survey from 28 December 2011 and by Pan-STARRS from 28 January 2012 were quickly located. Follow-up observations were made on 22 September by a team from Remanzacco Observatory in Italy using the iTelescope network. The discovery was announced by the Minor Planet Center on 24 September, three days after the discovery.


Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 28 November 2013 at a distance of 0.012 AU (1,800,000 km; 1,100,000 mi) from the center point of the Sun. Accounting for the solar radius of 695,500 km, the comet will pass approximately 1,100,000 kilometres (680,000 mi) above the Sun’s surface. Its orbit is nearly parabolic, which suggests that it may be a new comet coming fresh from the Oort cloud. On closest approach, the comet will pass about 0.072 AU (10,800,000 km; 6,700,000 mi) from Mars on 1 October 2013, and it will pass about 0.42 AU (63,000,000 km; 39,000,000 mi) from Earth on 26 December 2013. Some of the orbital elements of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) are similar to that of the Great Comet of 1680 which suggests the two comets may have fragmented from the same parent body.


The name of the comet is simply C/2012 S1, with the addition “(ISON)” merely identifying the organization where the discovery was made, the Russia-based International Scientific Optical Network. If the same organization had discovered a similar but unrelated comet one day later, that one would have been named “C/2012 S2 (ISON)”. Nevertheless, media sources, interpreting the addition as a nickname, have taken to give the comet’s name as “Ison”, and this name may consequently stick.

At the risk of insulting your intelligence I’d like to point out that the turning point of the Comet ISON’s transit occurs on November 28 in Constellation Scorpius after which it continues on through constellations Ophiuchus and Serpens until December 15, 2013 (Sun still in Constellation Ophiuchus until December 18-19 (cusp date)).


Comet Lovejoy (C/2011 W3) was a fuzzy 11th-magnitude blip on December 3rd (UT) when this photo was taken

As a reminder, here is our report on the last unusual Cometary visit to our Solar System in the Ophiuchus sector and Ecliptic Plane Time Zone.

  • Comet Lovejoy C/2011 W3: an historic Ophiuchus Sungrazer

The dates of ISON’s transit highlighted in red in the table above mark the peak energy for Scorpio-Ophiuchus natives and for directly influencing the progress of the Scorpion-Serpent part of the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy.

Notice the progression of Ecliptic Longitude numbers. They change direction suddenly when the Comet whips around the Sun.

POP QUIZ QUESTION: Where is the Comet when it changes direction?

The Eagle part of the Alchemy will depend on Feathered Serpent aspects (Venus, Asteroid Quetzalcoatl) and we will be tracking and reporting on these events as the time draws nearer since nobody knows when objects floating or blazing through the heavens will be born, change, or die — as we saw when we tracked the disappointing fizzle of Comet Elenin. Forecasting too far in advance assumes the Universe is nothing more than a mindless machine. That is clearly not the case as you know by now.

  1. I’m not arrogant enough to assert we did this let alone claim when it was done, but we did go on a mission to connect with Quetzalcoatl and we did write about our Ophiuchus Adventure of 12/21/2012 to capture the essence and the meaning of Quetzalcoatl in the context of Constellation Ophiuchus. See December 21, 2012: Solstice at Templo de Quetzalcóatl.

About Donna Provancher

I initiated my mysticism & occult path with a course in Astrology from the Rosicrucian Fellowship in 1970. In 1987 as I was preparing to become a professional Astrologer I bought a sky atlas for fun and found constellation Ophiuchus walking along the zodiac belt. I was shocked. I've dedicated myself to evolving Astrology for the New Age ever since then. Let those with the ears to hear, hear. Take what resonates. Leave the rest.
