The weather was 69° today as we say farewell to Chanukah.
I had dinner with my friend Marisa who took this picture as I lit the 7th candle.
We can't seem to stay indoors anymore as today's high was 67° in New York City.
12/12 is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe when an Apparition of Mother Mary appeared to Juan Diego near Mexico City on December 9, 1531. The Virgin told Juan Diego to gather flowers from the top of Tepeyac Hill, where he found Castilian roses, not native to Mexico, blooming in December on the normally barren hilltop. The Virgin arranged the flowers in his tilma or cloak. When Juan Diego opened his cloak before Bishop Zumarraga on December 12, the flowers fell to the floor. On the fabric was the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Looking at the image of the roses connected to Mother Mary reminded me of an experience I had this week with my friend Jane who lives nearby and also faces the water and Verrazano Bridge. We were both sitting on our sofas looking out over the bridge and the setting sun ... when something happened. We had been talking about the hologram, global events, and how things are coming to closure when ... the scent of roses wafted through our living rooms at the same time. It was amazing and very symbolic. This takes me to the only prophecy that has ever connected ...
Eskimo Woman Prophecies
In the hours before Jesus returns to Earth, the whole world will smell of roses.
The orca said the Lord will do this so men will know the time has come.
December 11, 2015 - For some reason I knew I had to wear my Gold (Alchemy) Ankh Earrings with Garnet Stones today - somewhere there would be an Egyptian connection. Sunset was at 4:29 pm Eastern Time. Around 5:00 off I went to the lobby of my building, with cell phone in hand, ready to light the 6th candle and take a picture. As Jose the doorman took the picture, and the flash went off, it was as if a flash went off in my head. When Jose handed me the phone, Z said, "Check the time". It read 5:12pm which would be 12:12am in Egypt. In the elevator, my thoughts turned to my adventures on 12.12.00 in the Great Pyramid and the symbology of it all on the New Moon 19° Sagittarius ... its energies surrounding me as I went home.

On this night I recited the Chanukah blessing for my friend Pat and several of my neighbors in the lobby while lighting the candle.
Pat manufactures mannequins.
The mannequins below are part of her current winter collection for Saks Fifth Avenue's Christmas windows.
The skin tones are varying shades of ice - blue, silver and white.
The designs are covered in Swarovski crystals.
This mannequin reminds me of the Blue Alien or Diva Plavalaguna from "The Fifth Element". She is standing in front of Isis.
Diva Plavalaguna was entrusted with the Element Stones.
