turning lead into gold

what does it mean to turn lead into gold?

is it about transmuting a base metal into a precious metal?

or does it mean more?

lead is a metal that is very heavy…..very dull…and resistant to change

ready for some correspondences?

all of the 7 planets correspond to a metal

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alchemical_symbol#Seven_planetary_metals

on my blog “the magnificent seven” I endeavoured to show that all of the sevens in the bible are due to the ancients understanding of the seven planets

a recap of the 7 planets

sun/moon/mercury/venus/mars/jupiter/saturn

and here are the metals they are connected with

the sun is connected to gold

the moon is connected to silver

mercury is connected to….erm….mercury!

venus is connected to copper

mars is connected to iron

jupiter is connected to tin

and saturn is connected to lead

lead is the metal of saturn

gold is the metal of the sun

and saturn rules the 6 months of autumn/winter starting with his exaltation in libra

and the sun the 6 months of spring/summer starting with his exaltation in aries

the sun is mister hot….and saturn mister cold

they are complete opposites!

this is where we get the concept of saturn/satan being the adversary of the sun/christ

now in the reign of the sun…..the spring/summer months….there is abundance

however in the reign of saturn ………autumn/winter……there is restriction

and it’s this aspect of saturn that we understand as being satan…the opposer…the tester…the adversary!

saturn is connected with religion…..the latin word “religare” means “to bind” “obligations”

see his connection to religion on my blog “saturn lord of the rings”

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/06/12/saturn-the-lord-of-the-rings/

the libra scales are also used in money and law…..and the planet saturn rules these things

saturn rules structures like authority………that keep us safe …yet confine us

and in our body saturn rules the skeletal structure….see the connection to the grim reaper….skeletal figure?….again….go google to confirm for yourself

so…..as said before (and until it sticks in your mind) saturn exalts in libra ….the scales of justice….so saturn also has an influence on justice…law

Artgate_Fondazione_Cariplo_-_Canova_Antonio,_Allegoria_della_Giustizia

and this is why you have phrases like…”devil’s advocate”

and the judge says…”take him down”

also saturn is connected with contracts

the the sun/christ/light expands at aries the lamb…the spring equinox…this is the start of long days of light

and things contract at the sign of libra……the balance……the scales of justice and measurement……and wouldn’t you know……saturn exalts in libra

again is it wordplay with the word contract?

isn’t a lot of laws to do with contract?

what about divorce……..someone broke that marriage contract and is going to pay for it

a contract is an agreement between two living beings

and again….is it not a symbol of satan/saturn to try to contract with someone?

Devil__s_Contract_by_liiga

think of faust who made a pact with the devil

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faust

or even…..the guitarist robert johnson

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Johnson#Devil_legend

…..it’s all legend/symbolism of the devil/satan/saturn and pacts/oaths/agreements/contracts

if you dont live up to the oath you made to the devil……….he takes your soul

if you do not honour an agreement…….what you allow to rule you or what you are in debt to….owns your soul

it is also shylock wanting his pound of flesh…..it’s all allegory…there is no real satan…..it’s all about us and our collective psyche

however ….you have to allow saturn/satan in….you have to sign the contract…….you have to allow the vampire over your door

this is all the influence of the planet saturn….the lord of the rings…….

remember saturn has to do with restriction and binding

tolkien knew about the influence of saturn when he wrote

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

sauron is saturn……and he binds people in darkness

and isn’t saturn/satan…..the prince of darkness?

oaths….contracts……law…vows…all bind/restrict/control humans

the bible has this to say about oaths

Matthew 5:33-37English Standard Version (ESV)

Oaths

33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

notice it says “let what you say simply be yes”…..anything more than this comes from evil.

see the saturnian theme there……it’s telling us about the influence of saturn…….or the influence of part of the human psyche

all oaths compel us to obey them…..when I stood up as a jehovah’s witness and said I agreed with their tenets and got baptized….I made an oath or pact with them…..(d’oh!)

and when I found out about the hidden lies of the organisation……..I upped and left

….to them I broke my oath……my vow……

and now they do not speak to me……..even to say hello in the street or supermarket

however …if I merely went along to the hall and never took the pledge/oath/agreement….they would still be speaking to me

oaths change everything……..they are very important

……very important!

with contracts/agreements….you better read the small print because if you don’t ….you’re in trouble……………. because the devil is in the details…(the small print)

and they are the small print in the contract……little hidden extras

so hopefully now…you get the idea of law being immovable/dark/foreboding place where accounts are balanced………outstanding debts get settled

this corresponds to saturn and lead…scales and justice……saturn is very serious…he doesn’t play around

saturn rules libra….satan and the law

lawyers and judges wear black…..and again…funnily enough….black is the colour of saturn

and you’ve heard the saying….”the law is an ass”……an ass is stubborn…immovable

like lead……dull heavy………

see the correspondences?….see the allegories?…….the planets and zodiac are telling us about ourselves!

this is how you should think of satan/saturn……..holding you back…restricting/binding you/controlling you

here’s a bible section that tells us about satan/saturn and control

1st chronicles 21:1-3

David Forces a Census
1Then Satan stood up against Israel and moved David to number Israel. 2So David said to Joab and to the princes of the people, “Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan, and bring me word that I may know their number.” 3Joab said, “May the LORD add to His people a hundred times as many as they are! But, my lord the king, are they not all my lord’s servants? Why does my lord seek this thing? Why should he be a cause of guilt to Israel?”

notice it says satan stood up against israel?…(satan=opposer)…..yet there was no real entity called the devil there…….david himself was trying to force a census….why?…to number the israelites…to control them/bind them/restrict them

the satan that stood up against israel was only the thoughts of david himself

he had allowed destructive thoughts (the vampire) to enter over his minds threshold

again when I was a jehovah’s witness you had to hand in the number of hours you had preached every month….this was a control method I couldn’t see at the time

if your hours went down….an elder would come to “encourage” you to do more

 

also saturn is associated with restrictions and weighty limitations

http://www.astrology.com.au/astrology/planets/saturn.html

saturn teaches you a lesson!

and if you go against him….you better be on your mettle…and read the small print…otherwise you are toast

however……ironically …….the restrictive saturn/satan wants you to do well

(the words satan and devil mean……….. slanderer…opposer…resister)

because all of this restriction and opposition can be good for you….all of this testing

…………………….no pain….no gain

opposition/saturn/satan…….causes us to progress…to evolve……..think of a weightlifter

the opposition of the weights improve his muscles………..make him stronger

without the opposition of saturn we wouldn’t have the contrast of the better way

saturn actually wants us to break free of his restrictions…………to be the hero…..to break the bonds

to turn the restriction (lead) into gold

and you might have noticed on the list above…… gold is the metal of the sun

here’s another example of “satan” at work in the bible

the lead holding back the gold

saturn/satan holding back the sun/son of god

….and the attitude we should adopt when faced with trials/resistance

remember peter said this to jesus?

Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection
21From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day. 22Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to You.” 23But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.”

jesus was on his life’s mission and peter was trying to oppose him…….restrict him……..BIND HIM…stumble him…yet….jesus was having none of it and rebuked peter

this is all allegory of us letting others hold us back

it could be a child at school who has a talent in something……and yet..not wanting to stand out from their classmates for fear of ridicule

to someone who has made an oath to another and therefore becoming a slave to the other’s will

and again there is another correspondence….satan and slavery

satan gets us to become his “slave” by oath taking….by contracting…..by signing for a loan

getting you in debt

and this can cause us to become heavy in our spirit and lose our lustre

JUST LIKE LEAD

we can become black hearted…again black is the colour of saturn

however we can turn that lead into gold

how?….by going on the hero’s journey…..breaking free from all the restrictions imposed on us

humans like to tie other humans in knots…restrict and bind them to their will

so we need to get the courage to break free from those restrictions

here are some examples of people who did just that

rosa parks

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Parks

nelson mandela

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelson_Mandela

george washington

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington

george washington let no restrictions stop his lifes path

he literally said…..”get behind me satan” just like jesus

this is why we have the “apotheosis of george washington” on the capitol building’s rotunda

and wouldn’t you know…….apotheosis means “the elevation of someone to divine status.”

see the sun just behind george washington?…the gold?

1280px-Apotheosis_of_George_Washington

here is a wee hint for a future blog……..why are there 72 stars round about the picture of george?

(sshhh….don’t tell anyone…..it’s astrology)

the bible is full of such stories of turning lead into gold by breaking free of the control of others

it’s the “set my people free” call of moses…….to oppose the big boss…the pharaoh/satan/saturn

its king david facing goliath with a slingshot and five stones in the valley of elah

its the apostles spreading their message of freedom under threat of death from rome

they are all allegories of the human condition of both bondage and freedom

as we enter the new age of aquarius the old age of pisces will try to hold us back

the old ways and institutions and ideas will strongly resist the new

the bible says the birth of the new age will be turbulent

1 Thessalonians 5

Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

notice the labour pains of a pregnant woman……..its a birth of something

it’s the birth of another stage of an evolving mankind

it’s not telling us that jesus is coming from the sky to save us….it’s allegory….it’s through mankind itself wrestling/coming to terms with a whole new way of thinking and doing things

and because people are resistant to change……..it will cause conflict…….starting to notice it all around us…….freedom movements….sovereign movements…tea party movements….occupy wall street movements

it’s turbulent times folks as we grow up as a species into a new stage of man

the age of aquarius

and the turning lead into gold theme comes through the bible …yet again

— 1 CORINTHIANS 3:11-15

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

notice as we get tested …….we really find out who we are

and we are in testing times!

as the bible says…..some will be found as stubble…………and some as gold

turn your lead into gold!
