Introducing the 36 Gates Astrological Clock for your wall or other display. A functioning clock and show stopping work of art to deepen your connection to the rhythms of natural time.
This newest creation from Ana Cortez (in partnership with Paykoc Studios) operates manually, on a built-in gear box. It needs no battery or electricity of any kind and it never expires. It’s good for every single year – an investment for a lifetime.
“Check out and align with your current time period, your birth date (or someone else’s,) important upcoming events or significant dates from the past (in any year!) and begin tracing meaningful connections.”
The center pyramid is a hybrid of elements from the ancient Mayan and Egyptian, and acts as a dial, that rotates and points to any date you choose. The gear box below evokes the cosmic mystery as you can literally see the gears turning through circular viewing windows.
Allow your curiosity to guide you as you turn the “dial” to dates in time. Follow the peak of your pyramid outward and receive radiating layers of correspondences. Choose what you wish as your focus.
Starting from the center and moving outward toward the edge, what you find are:
- center hybrid pyramid with the 9 levels of Mayan Creation, the legendary eye of Egypt, and the Dragon’s Egg.
- dates of the year, listed in 10 day time periods (that correspond to the Astrological Decans or 36 Gates of Ancient Egyptian Astrology.)
- associated playing card, which acts as a study piece or meditation to deepen your understanding of the particular time period.
- associated zodiac sign.
- the associated element, plus its mystic symbol and magic word.
- dots indicate whether your zodiac sign is cardinal, fixed or mutable.
- spellbinding quotation from King Solomon, as it relates to the 36 Gates or Astrological Decans.
- the degrees of the solar cycle (in 10 degree increments.)
- the ancient holidays of natural time: Solstice, Equinox, Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane and Lammas.
Check out and align with your current time period, your birth date (or someone else’s,) important upcoming events or significant dates from the past (in any year!) and begin tracing meaningful connections.
