A fantasy interpretation of when Saturn sat in our Celestial Pole circle c. 9600BC-9200BC and the effect it may have had on the Earth at the time. I get into researching electrical plasma effects from this event, I know, who’d guess..? It’s rather an interesting science because there is now new scientific evidence that Saturn’s magnetic plasma Aurora’s are extremely electric and NASA’s Cassini has just photographed Saturn’s Poles again and noticed a huge hexagonal Aurora, it holds mega amounts of electrical plasma.
Lightening is plasma charges and Zeus was very powerful. Myth is full of references to the power of the Earth and Heavens and after delving into this subject it’s interesting that Saturn sat at the top of the world at the time of the big melt 12,000 years ago. From this event man changed, beasts disappeared and memories of a time of creation arose, of a new world, when Gods created Gods and the Gods created man.
Saturn is also known as Cronus, father of the Greek Olympian Gods, the ancient God of fertility and the measure of time, when seasons were created and he was the most important God in the sky until the Clash of the Titans, bought down by his sons, Zeus, Poseidon and Hades as they took his place of power.
The Romans still saw Saturn as all important and celebrated Saturnalia, a celebration that lasted a week where during this time masters would become the slaves and the slave became the master, if just for a short time. Celebrating a time when a huge glowing ball was unmoved for over 400 years at the Pole, when the Earth flooded and divided, new lands and primordial mounds emerged from the water, men migrated around the world and animals had a new place in the circle of life.

Ever been to Ravenshoe? And no, that's not Raven Shoe, it's Ravens-hoe, bet you said Raven Shoe didn't you?? You're not the only one!
Ravenshoe is a warm, friendly, highland town up on the Atherton Tablelands, about 2 hours from Cairns and a wonderful place to visit and live. Without the muggy heat of the coast, Ravenshoe has been a hideaway for lots of people for many years and now it is being discovered, making it an ideal place to retire or just move away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Surrounded by tropical rainforest on one side and the gateway to the Savannah taking you over to the Gulf on the other, it offers many opportunities to see some great sights:
Check out the superb waterfalls, Little Millstream Falls is close to town and very pretty, with a walking track right up to the drop while Millstream Falls itself is Australia's widest waterfall, a spectacular sight in the wet.
See the wildlife and what a treat that is, possums galore and rare tree kangaroos live in the canopies while many unique birdlife and marsupials only found in this area inhabit the forests.
Visit the town centre and have lunch at the Cottage Cafe, filled with artworks for sale, have a coffee and lunch while there, dinner at the pubs is always value for money and lots of great shopping can be found, gifts in the Chemist have an Asian feel and just walking in makes you feel good.
Ride the Millstream Express, a restored steam train that is lovingly cared for by volunteers, making sure passengers enjoy their 30 minute trip out to Tumoulin, where scones and tea await you on a tea break stop, back to Ravenshoe for a round trip and lots of fun for the kids too!
Koombaloomba Dam offers everyone the chance to go boating or fishing, camping, swimming or just bush walking, drive down Tully Falls Road and don't forget to stop at Tully Gorge Lookout, checking out the spectacular drop to the gorge while having a lunchtime BBQ is well worth the while.
So much more can be found in the small town of Ravenshoe, with a Visitor's Centre that offers helpful advice, great accomodation from B & B's, the Kool Moon Motel and the local hotels, camping or farm-stay, we have it all up here so pack your bags, jump in the car and take a drive, up to the unique little town of Ravenshoe, that's Ravens-hoe - not Raven Shoe...just so you know.
