1. Check out Planetary Hours for Choosing the Right Time!
The planetary hour system is an ancient technique based on a Chaldean order of the seven visible planets according to their speed, slowest to fastest: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. This system has been neglected by many astrologers for quite a number of years, but is being revived as part of the rediscovery of ancient techniques through the efforts of Project Hindsight and Arhat. Those who use the planetary hours have observed that, indeed, the hours do seem to take on the character of the planets that rule them. Knowing this, it becomes obvious that if you can determine the planetary hours in advance, you have a very easy method of choosing the time most likely to be best for various activities.

The Uranus-Pluto Square- 2012-2015
"The Uranus-Pluto "geocentric square" begins in June 2012 and continues through March 2015, consisting of seven triggers (the exact squares occurring due to the planetary retrogrades). During this time, on November 24, 2013, the "synodic square" occurs. The synodic square is the actual (heliocentric) square occurring in the current 138-year Uranus-Pluto synodic cycle that began on January 7, 1966, at the exact peak of the Vietnam War and the emergence of the Flower Power Political Movement. This is the first (90°) square in this cycle." Read More-> Nick Anthony Fiorenza
3. Red dot becomes 'oldest cave art'
"Red dots, hand stencils and animal figures represent the oldest examples yet found of cave art in Europe.
The symbols on the walls at 11 Spanish locations, including the World Heritage sites of Altamira, El Castillo and Tito Bustillo have long been recognised for their antiquity.
But researchers have now used refined dating techniques to get a more accurate determination of their ages.
One motif- a faint red dot- is said to be more than 40,000 years old."
