We all start the cyclic journey at precisely the same point, and travel through the cycles at the same speed. That said, everyone will have different experiences during the progression of the cycles based on their natal horoscope and their own personal circumstances and evolution. For the most precise interpretations Jacob’s Wheel should be used in conjunction with your natal chart. Jacob’s Wheel astrology is also very accurate when used on its own, so an accurate birthchart is by no means an integral part of the system – it will merely fine tune the interpretation. The illustration above shows the structure of the Master Mandala, each of the 21 spheres contain another complete mandala. The only one that does not is the central sphere. If you click on the mandala image a new window will open displaying the full astrological Master Mandala. Detailed articles in the menu on the left will (I hope) explain the basics of how this wonderful system works. The articles get a little more complex the further down the menu you get. If you do get stuck at any point then feel free to email me with any questions you may have and I’ll do my best to help.
There are seven main cycles that we use and these are of varying importance. The shortest (and therefore most obvious) cycle is the 147 day cycle. This is the easiest cycle to work with because it’s energies manifest themselves most clearly in the form of 8 hour phases. In contrast the longest master cycle, the 147 year master cycle, has individual phases that are 4 months long, the current from this energy is concerned with long-term life influences rather than the day-to-day influences of the 8 hour phases. When you first start out with Jacob’s Wheel it’s advisable to just follow your 8 hour phases, once you start doing this you’ll discover that not only are they very accurate but it’s also a lot of fun.
The effects of the cycle and phase need to be observed and married together with the numerological influence of the spoke to create an overall picture of how the energies will manifest in your life. The other consideration to be taken into account is the placement of the archetypal energy (ie which house the planet or sign resides) in the person’s natal chart, this is a quite advanced technique and not recommended for anyone just starting out.
In the main you just need to examine the combination of archetypes that are presented to you. For example a Leo-Mercury phase could indicate that travel or communications within the family would be highlighted, or perhaps assertive communications or an element of pride, ego or intellect. When you start to use Jacob’s Wheel this is the kind of thing to observe. Looking at where your Leo and Mercury are placed in your natal chart would give you additional focus if you are interested, particularly the house that they are in. For instance if your Leo was in the 1st house then the energy would be more likely to address you and your personal identity, if it was in the 6th house work would probably feature. (E.g. communications with your family about your work.) These are just quick and non-specific examples to demonstrate how Jacob’s Wheel works. By knowing how the energy will manifest in a your day or week, you can plan beneficial times to undertake activities or be more prepared for potential tensions.
Having studied and used this system daily for a considerable length of time I know it works. The system is very accurate but can appear complex for beginners. If you start with the basics you can build this it over a period of months if you want, or you can stick to working with your 8 hour phases and still gain much benefit and insight.
The moon, the seasons, tides, everything we experience in the natural world is cyclic; our Earth is in every sense a living planet. Likewise, the mechanism of the solar system is cyclic also; with the planets, moons, stars and asteroids each having their own cycles and all forming part of the greater cycle of the solar system. The universe is a living element in the great scheme of creation, and we too are part of that scheme, part of The Divines great cycle of creation. Humanity is the butterfly of the universe; through our repeated incarnations on this planet our soul gradually undergoes the spiritual metamorphosis needed to reunite us with the divine essence of creation.
We each have our own personal connection to the universe, whether we are aware of it or not. To acknowledge and actively seek to strengthen that connection is to open the doors that lead us to discover our true path. If we have the courage or natural curiosity to pick them up, the tools to achieve this are all around us. We each hold the key to our own spiritual destiny, if we take a little time to explore it, our world will change forever.
The aim of this site is to introduce people to the different ways that they can incorporate these cycles into their lives, whether through traditional astrology, Jacob’s wheel astrology, numerology, crystals, magick or other esoteric, spiritual and metaphysical ways.

The contents on this site are all simply tools that allow us to look a little more deeply at ourselves and begin to understand the energies around us and unlock our own potential. Life should be an adventure, a journey where new insights open new doors and challenges are fun and exciting. Light of Isis is a growing online community that allows you to do just that.
As a huge Tool fan, I really love Lateralus. There is a verse in the lyrics that mentions “as above, so below,” which describes the Oneness of existence. It demonstrates the unity between the spiritual and the physical, between the macrocosm and the microcosm, between the realities on either side of the Veil of Isis.
Metaphysics is the study of the mechanics of the universal energy that surrounds us, guides us and gives us life itself. It allows us to draw upon the divine power of the cosmos by becoming a tool for exploration of our own inner essence. By learning how to harmonise our being with that of the cosmos we become attuned to the universal currents and the natural laws that these currents effect. This is a process that exists beyond our accepted physical limitations and brings forth a change in our consciousness, in the very core of our being. Metaphysics involves rediscovering our inner essence and rebalacing our own lightbody. The key to the universe, the elusive philosophers stone lies hidden deep within us all waiting to be rediscovered by mankind on an individual basis.
By allowing synchronicity – an expression of the cosmic principals, to be our guide, by learning to ‘let go’, by relinquishing the ego and allowing ourselves to give and receive unconditional love, we begin to attune ourselves to the frequency of the cosmos. Once we break free of the chains of attachment and dogma, we allow our soul to realise its true potential. When the creative impulse is harnessed, the absolute power of the intuitive feminine aspect begins to be realised. We each need to adjust our own cosmic frequencies in order to elevate our consciousness to a higher state. It is our consciousness that effectively creates the ‘reality’ of the holographic matrix humanity operates within.
