*** The Esoteric Meaning of the PHOENIX ***
Also known as the legendary Firebird, the PHOENIX is a mythological and metaphorical harbinger foretold by many of the ancient civilizations. From time immemorial, this winged messenger has represented what all the cultures of antiquity knew about the cyclical ending of the ages. Especially at the end of the Kali Yuga, because of the turbulent, tumultuous and tempestuous transition to the Golden Age, is this apocalyptic allegory more relevant than ever.
Perhaps the PHOENIX is just another name for Nibiru, like Hercolubus and the many other labels for the planet-comet known as Planet X. After all, the myth associated with this legendary bird does portray the oft-prophesied ending of the Iron Age with uncanny precision. The PHOENIX self immolates on its own funeral pyre only to rise from its ashes, just as human society is now doing during this twilight period of the Kali Yuga. Who among us has not heard of the coming Golden Age — an age that can only begin after the dissolution of the current planetary civilization?
In 1997, simultaneous with the appearance of the awesome Comet Hale Bopp, another event took place in the skies over Phoenix, Arizona. The Phoenix Lights, as they are known, was arguably the most dramatic UFO display in modern history. It is quite significant that this winged formation of extraordinary lights appeared over PHOENIX. It’s also no coincidence that this slow-moving, triangular pattern of lights occurred in the skies of a major American city very near in time to the perihelion (closest point to Earth) of the extraordinary comet Hale-Bopp.
Truly, the PHOENIX appears to every human race or culture, civilization or society, planet or continent, that is ready to be reborn. The current race of humanity knows that Mother Earth is ripe for such a planetary renewal and rejuvenation of her biosphere. And so it shall be done.
 Comet Hale-Bopp (aka the “Great Comet of 1997″) was most visible in the skies around the world during the entire month of March of 1997.
 The Phoenix Lights took place on March 13th 1997 and traversed the major metropolitan area of Phoenix.
 “Scholars have observed analogues to the phoenix in a variety of cultures. These analogues include the Persian anka, the Hindu garuda and Gandaberunda, the Russian firebird, the Persian simorgh, the Turkish kerkes, the Tibetan Me byi karmo, the Chinese fenghuang, and the Japanesehō-ō.”
