Halloween….Behind The Mask

“They became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible
God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds,
and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”..Romans 1:22-23.

People generally celebrate religious festivals nowadays without giving much thought as to the meaning or significance behind them.

One example of this would be Christmas…how many people understand that Christmas is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere?….the time when the sun is at its weakest.

The winter solstice is the midnight of the year!

In the suns journey round the zodiac circuit of the year,it has reached the sign of Capricorn/tropic of Capricorn….and the light of day is in short supply……the darkness rules the day…the nights are long and it is cold…however at the winter solstice the sun is “born again” and it starts its climb back up to the tropic of Cancer.

The sun is born again…..and it is only going to gain in strength each day….the daylight is gradually lengthening.

The light/Jesus/saviour has returned to the world!

You can see the zodiacal influence hidden in the festival of Christmas….just under the surface as usual…however it’s only noticed if you recognize the patterns.

For instance….we have the twelve days of Christmas….. why 12?

Think the 12 could have anything to do with the 12 signs of the zodiac?

What about the yule log?

http://www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk/the_wheel_of_the_year/yule_-_winter_solstice.asp

Santa is a personification of the God Saturn who rules the winter solstice..why?Because Saturn rules Capricorn!

The sun is born at Christmas in the sign of Capricorn….just as the sun is down at the tropic of Capricorn.

Remember Saturn is “Old Father Time”/Chronos….and old father time/Saturn has a long white beard.

The book “the secret teachings of all ages” says this on page 243

santa 001
SANTA IS SATURN!

However in this blog we will be focusing on another festival celebration and using the zodiac as a key to unravel its meaning.

This festival is Halloween….autumns mysterious festival that falls each year on October 31st.

How many people know the reason why people dress in grotesque costumes of demons and ghosts on this night?

People generally do it from the sheer force of custom,habit and tradition and little or no understanding of the meaning.

Whereas Christmas and Easter are regarded as religious festivals…Halloween is seen as more of a secular festival….expressing frivolity and mischief rather than the piety of the other two.

yet when it was originally conceived it was just as important as these others and the significance actually is inherent in the bizarre observance

so why the revelry?……why the grotesque?…why the freedom from moral restraint?…why the wearing of masks?

why the acting like an untamed animal for a night?

why the candle shining through a grinning pumpkin?

why bobbing for apples in a tub of water?

why witches riding the sky on a broomstick?

why imps and sprites and monsters and even the hint of satan himself on this last night of october?

well lets look past the outward form of the ritual and look at the inner meaning

although if you’ve read my previous blogs you will already be forming some connections already

just as the sun has a four part “life” each year on the earth….spring/summer/autumn/winter

and the 12 zodiacal segments or steps are divided into these four seasons

the 12 divided into the 4 segments …each segment/season…containing three signs each

the three are

cardinal

fixed

mutable

spring has the 3…aries (cardinal fire)…taurus (fixed earth)….gemini (mutable air)

summer has….cancer (cardinal water)…leo (fixed fire)….virgo (mutable earth)

autumn has….libra (cardinal air)……scorpio (fixed water)…sagittarius (mutable fire)

winter has…..capricorn (cardinal earth)….aquarius (fixed air)…pisces (mutable water)

and the two solstices and two equinoxes representing the boundaries between the 4 sections making a cross

what do I mean by that?…..again here’s a wee picture to explain

cross_zodiac_solstice

well so does the inner sun/sol/soul in man according to the hidden teachings

(see the blog “the soular journey” for more on this)

the ancients used the zodiac as a representation of the evolution of mans divine soul as it swung round the repeated cycles of life in incarnation/consciousness

sensation was the first grade of consciousness represented by the september point (autumnal equinox…(OR FALL))

emotion is represented by the december point (winter solstice)

mind is represented by the march point (spring equinox)

spirit by the june point (summer solstice)

and just as water moves from steam to liquid to solid so does the inner soul/psyche/sun of man

the soul of man….sol-o-man..solomon

solomon is actually an interesting construct….it gives different meanings

soul-o-man as said above

it also represents the male and female…or sol (sun) and mon (moon)..sol-o-mon

and it represents the sun three times in its different aspects rising/most high/setting….(holy holy holy)….sol=sun..om/aum=sun…on=sun

sol is the latin word for the sun

http://shirdisaidham.com/om.htm

the religions in india chant the word aum/om as being the sound of the sun

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/7531-heliopolis-on

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliopolis_%28ancient%29

and on was the old name for heliopolis the city of the sun

well if the occult teachings are to be believed….our soul/sol does the same…it rises/reigns and sets in a cycle

well this part of the cycle is representing the setting sun…or the fall

this happens each year around september 21st…..however what does halloween (october 31st) have to do with september 21st?

well the interval of 40 days holds the answer to the question

an interval of 40 days?…..anyone who reads the bible will know very well this period of time

along with 7..10 and 12 …40 is one of the numbers seen often throughout the scriptures

in ancient times forty was the number symbol of the interval of “death” of the germ/seed when incubated in matter

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

human gestation is around 40 weeks

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestation#Humans

http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Baby_due_date?open

this is why jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days

it rained for forty days with noah

the israelites roamed the wilderness for forty years

lent is also a period of 40 days

it is a gestation period…or dark interval before a new life cycle starts

so with all that in mind…..count 40 days from september 21st and you arrive at october 31st

(count 40 days from the spring equinox march 21st and you arrive at walpurgisnacht/mayday/beltane)

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

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

so the “holy night” or “hallowed even” (halloween) was set for the 40th day after the “fall/autumn” of the soul that fell into incarnation….carno means “flesh” in latin

so the soul entered its incarnation and after an incubation period of 40 days culminated its progress in its final glorified state and emerged into the hallowed state of its initial/incipient stage of emerging godhood/sainthood again

and isnt it apt that november first…the day after halloween is called “all saints day”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Saints%27_Day

the 31st of october(halloween) virtually symbolizes…what easter symbolizes at the end of the 40 days of lent….the soul in both cycles comes to its beatification at the forty days end.

remember this picture from a previous blog?

File0024                                        

                                              “the fruit I have brought forth is the sun”

isis/matter precedes/gives birth to spirit….it is the foundation…the platform from which spirit bursts forth

the development of the physical body is needed to prepare the way for the spiritual

the bible also pictures this by telling us that john the baptist prepares the way for the christ

john-baptist2bjohn represents the earthly man/physical body who prepares the way for the spiritual man

john represents matter!….earth and water…he was earthy and baptized with water…remember….earth!….and water!

and jesus represents mind….he baptizes with air (spirit) and fire

Matthew 3:11

john in the wilderness…the earthy dweller who ate locusts…earth

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

can you not see the four elements ?

can you not see the distinction between the male elements…fire and air jesus the heavenly part of the zodiac…from the female..john the earthly part of the zodiac……earth and water

its the journey round the zodiac from positive to negative….summer to winter……exhalation to inhalation

its nature…the cyclical nature of things

and paul tells us in 1st corinthians 15:45-49

45 Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. 47 The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall6 also bear the image of the man of heaven.

and again mark 4:28 says

“All by itself the soil (matter/isis) produces grain (the spiritual)–first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.”

the human body arrives first to build a brain and nervous system through which thought and mind and consciousness come

so it is the first stage of our unfoldment that halloween portrays…the animal stage

and the glorification of all saints day comes after the animal stage/halloween in us

and it is this animal stage that is being revered at halloween…….

night precedes day…….god said “let there be light” and brought it out of the darkness of primordial night

the sun rises out of the earth/water/hell and night in the natural cycle of the day

the god rises out of the animal

puck said

“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”

A Midsummer Nights Dream Act 3, scene 2, 110–115

while in incarnation the soul becomes likened to a fool cut off from the full light of truth and wisdom

They became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible
God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds,
and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”–Romans 1:22-23.

the pistis sophia tells us this

when that soul shall drink out of the cup, it forgetteth all the regions to which it hath gone, |337. and all the chastisements in which it hath travelled. And that cup of the water of forgetfulness becometh body outside the soul, and it resembleth the soul in all [its] figures and maketh [itself] like it

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

and interestingly the first card of the tarot is called the fool

thefoolhe’s leaving the sun behind in the card above and about to set off on his adventures

he’s the unenlightened one…the one who has no clue who he is…in fact he is about to step over a precipice!

it is a symbol of the souls immersion in matter and new beginnings!

according to the secret teachings the soul is in its unawakened state of its childhood

and this is a deep…esoteric meaning of the celebration of halloween…..and the foolishness surrounding the festival

the court jester/fool and the king are representations of the two polarities in the soul

kings also had their fools in the castle……just as we have both in our castle!

in the top half spring/summer of the zodiac the soul is as king

and the bottom half of the zodiac autumn/winter it is likened to the fool

another designation for halloween was in old English history named nutcracker night.

http://www.jackolanterns.net/britishhalloween.htm

the symbolic relevance embodied in the term would not seem to be too difficult to resolve. It has already been mentioned that according to occult teachings….the soul enters body at the september date of the year’s cycle, and it can enter it only as seed of its future growth. a common form of seed in the vegetable kingdom is the nut……once planted in the soil of human life……..the evolutionary task of the divine potential is to crack open the shell and bring out the kernel for the purposes of new growth…

hence the figure of nut-cracking.

(this nut cracking is also the born again experience spoken of by jesus

and the enlightenment teachings of practically every religion on this earth)

just like the shell of the nut…it must dissolve for the plant or tree to grow

and now think of all the times jesus spoke in allegory about the seed in the ground and seed growing into the tree

and paul talking about the two adams

So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.

and it is also the meaning behind a lot of bible allegories

for instance….it is a rending of the temple curtain in the mortal body that will release the christ consciousness at the death of said body

however back to the autumnal theme

the prime theme of halloween is revelry as the soul comes into the flesh and the opposite is carnival which means putting or shoving away the flesh that happens just before the 40 days of lent….so the flesh gives itself one last party around this time

can you see how this part of the year from halloween till close to easter is the time for incarnation…..or the dark night of the soul

the part of the soul’s cycle in which it sees through a glass darkly!

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+13%3A12&version=KJV

the natural cycle on earth shows us this is when things crystallize…..ice and snow etc

this is when the soul embodied in flesh is given free rein to impulses of the flesh and in the indulgence of carnality

the soul is in darkness….it has crystallized…or christ-alized the light is in the world but not of the world

the story of the christ is telling us of the journey through matter of our own inner sun or soul/sol

the soul is imprisoned in the “animal” and is tempted by sensation

this is the real temptation of christ…when he went into the wilderness for 40 days and the bible says he was “with the wild animals”

mark 1:13

and he was born in a stable among animals also!

and can you also see the story of the prodigal son emerging!

in fact myth abounds with stories like this souls being among animals or jonah swallowed by a whale….nebuchadnezzar becoming like an animal (remember he even lost his reasoning?)…daniel in the lions den…romulus and remus being suckled by a she-wolf

this is what halloween is telling us about!

why witches though?…why is halloween associated with witches?

the german word for witch is hex….six…witches are also associated with the female usually

and the female is associated with matter…saturn and matter/isis/the virgin are linked by the number 6….(see the blog saturn the lord of the rings for more on the six)..and while the inner male sol/soul is entrenched in feminine matter it can seem grotesque…it is the god in the feminine state of winter/night/hell/darkness…..remember…earth and water are the female elements

so the male soul/mind entrenched in female matter can give us a glimpse of why a witch has a broomstick….it’s the male phallus!

and you can see more male symbolism…because the witch flies in the sky….air (male principle)

and when the witch is on her broomstick you will usually see the moon…and when the soul is giving vent to its carnal impulses it is subject to lunacy for this one night

and over it as a matrix…man’s physical body was formed of earthy
material… it is lunar influence that affects the two lower bodies…so says the arcane astrological
science…it is solar influence that dominates the two upper bodies…the mental and the spiritual.
but when soul migrates from heaven to earth it comes first predominantly under the lunar
forces, which bestir in the body the fires of sense and emotion

and talking about the matrix above….the film the matrix is telling us allegorically about spirit emerging out of matter

the word “matrix” means breeding female…mother….womb…..matter!

and isn’t it interesting that in the film the main character is called thomas (the twin/two parts of the zodiac/john the baptist and jesus/the two adams etc) anderson

and he is also called neo…..neo means new…and anderson….ander means man…and son

new son of man!

and neo is an anagram of one

remember isis/matter/matrix said…the fruit I bring forth is the sun/son

and the new son of man comes out of the matrix/mother/isis/matter

matter comes first and then mind

again…is this just wordplay?

now why do we bob or duck for apples?….think of the fall of man…..and by tradition eve offered adam the apple to eat…and ducking into water for the apple is the same symbolism of baptism…the soul has been captured into water with the promise that it will one day make its way back out of the water into the air(male element) again

just like the sun plunging into the sea at sunset!

and the pumpkin with the grotesque face and the light on in the head

through our mind (head) while we are in the earthly body..the grotesque earthiness symbolized by the pumpkin…the soul is represented by the fire in the mind…the almost extinguished flame shining through the mask of the earthy body…its the dark night of the soul

and while in the heavenly part of the souls journey…..there is a whole body of light according to religious and occult teachings…its the daytime of the soul!

why do people wear masks which hide their identity at halloween?

this is symbolism of the mask of personality

persona originally meant mask in latin

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

the “god” is staring out at the world through the eyes of an animal/earthiness/matter while incarnated…again think of the pumpkin!

halloween is the masquerade ball of the ego-soul in man…. he is a (potential) god…yet here he is cavorting in the disguise of the beast in the world of the senses

he is a persona…per-(through) sona-(sound)

when in this flesh the fool learns through the pain that his folly brings…it teaches the soul lessons…the flesh is like a teacher chipping away at the soul…teaching it lessons

so there is a conflict between the mind and the flesh

this is what the book of revelation is telling us

thus begins the inner battle of armageddon spoken of pictorially in revelation

as the mind starts the battle to rein in the desires of the flesh…because the sensual flesh stubbornly refuses to take the reins

all to bring about the balance or marriage between the male and female…..aka mind (male) and flesh/emotions (female)

this is the real meaning of the marriage of the lamb

and the secret of the ancient alchemists when they symbolized it thus

6a00d83454ed4169e20192abebfa17970d-500wi

see the feet of the androgyne on the moon?….the soul has conquered the lower half of the zodiac…the feminine/winter part of the cycle….symbolised by the moon/feminine principle

its also the meaning of david slaying goliath….hitting him in the forehead with the stone

the meaning of the child hercules grappling with the two serpents

the old adam (the senses/emotions) through evolution will give way to the new adam (mind/spirit)

mind is the magician that puts the dragon to sleep and lets the maid escape from her prison

in the yearly cycle the two forces…male and female meet at the spring equinox

its the twilight of the year

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

when we bring about the marriage of these two forces in ourselves…..spring arrives

it will be the spring of man…rather than the fall of man…it’s the born again/soul awakening/higher consciousness experience

its the marriage feast of cana……the virgins going out to meet the bridegroom…….

can you start to grasp all the religions and customs are saying the same thing….only describing it in their own way?

are you seeing the links and patterns and connections?

its the journey of the (inner) sun….that mirrors exactly the outer sun

“as above…so below”

“on earth as it is in heaven”

are you seeing it yet?

there are a thousand other things I could write…..but best keeping that for future blogs

thanks for reading….and again…..please share if you think anyone will appreciate these occult/esoteric subjects

although they are probably not for those who take the bible literally……. 🙂

cheers!

the perfect ashlar

1993-Ashlars
ROUGH AND PERFECT ASHLARS

An ashlar is a stone used in masonry……

In freemasonry the ashlar is used as a guide to an initiates progress

the rough ashlar is the stone taken from the quarry with rough edges all around

(see the stone on the left of the picture above)

and as the freemason learns the lessons of freemasonry and applies them to himself….that one becomes a perfect ashlar

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashlar#Freemasonry

http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/rough-and-perfect-ashlar.html

unlike painting where you apply layers onto a canvas…adding on to your canvas with outside things….sculpting is the opposite…it is a chipping away at the piece of stone getting worked on….YOU!…this is why the ancient sages said…”know thyself”…….only you can work on yourself…….chipping away at the imperfections to bring about the perfectly polished brick…worthy to be used in the house of god

another allegory of the same thing……of gaining control over your ego….would be st george slaying the dragon…..confronting the dark in yourself….(we all have a light and a dark side)……..the things difficult to confront..it would also be jesus riding/controlling the stubborn donkey

st-george_1531371iaccording to the occult teachings….man has a divine and an animal nature….or a winter part of the “inner” zodiac and a summer part of our “inner” zodiac….and the two wrestle for control….we’ve seen it in cartoon form as the angel and the devil on each shoulder

homer

know thyself!

when we chip away at the ashlar within…….we present ourselves as worthy to be part of the greater structure

1 Peter 2:5New International Version (NIV)

you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house[a] to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

and again……a brick is a 6 sided thing…..remember mankind is hexed with time?….(hex or sex =six)…..6 is man’s number

why 6?

let’s look at the sepher yetzirah again….

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

I mentioned a little about it in this previous blog

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/tarot-rota-torah/

this symbol below represents the sepher yetzirah….lets look a little closer at it’s meaning

 

11500

notice the triangle in the middle?

it has three hebrew letters in it

at the top…..aleph

bottom left…..mem

bottom right….shin

these are the three “mother letters”

however…what does that mean?

here’s what it means……it stands for many things…the trinity of christianity….the hindu gods brahma vishnu and shiva etc…..in the zodiac it’s the cardinal…fixed….mutable signs

in kabbalah it is the three top spheres of the tree of life…kether,chokmah and binah

however….it also represents the three dimensions!

according to the sepher yetzirah the three letters stretch themselves out into infinity

aleph represents updown….height

mem represents east and west….breadth

shin represents north and south….length

cubic

see the diagram above….take your time and see the three letters….aleph… the wee red line …..up and down

mem the blue line ……..east and west

and shin…..the pink line…….north and south

they are the three dimensions in the cube above

next are the seven “double” letters…..(notice the black 7 rayed star in the sepher yetzirah picture above)…why seven “double letters?”….because they can be uttered with a hard and soft tone…they can’t make their mind up!….they are contrasts…..7 opposites

that’s why you can have 7 virtues and 7 vices…….and 7 brides for 7 brothers!

they are the magnificent seven……..the seven samurai………the seven sisters

the 7 planets

the seven letters are 7 opposites

beth is mercury

gimel is the moon

daleth is venus

kaph is jupiter

peh is mars

resh is the sun

and our old friend….(no pun intended) tau….tau is saturn….”old father time”…mr alpha and omega himself…the old crony…chronus/saturn

they are the green letters in the image above

beth is above…also mercury

gimel is below…and the moon

daleth is east….and venus

kaph is west….and jupiter

peh is north……and mars

resh is south….and the sun

and guess what letter holds the middle……holds it all together

tau………saturn….he holds the “6 dimensional twins” together…again he holds the cube together….he holds the 6 together….that number 6 again

saturn/tau is hidden in the cube….holding the 6 dimensional twins together

again…this is why mankind has been hexed….hex means six……and interestingly hex also means witch in german…..see my upcoming blog on halloween for more info!

and again….how interesting that saturn holds the 6 together and saturn has a hexagon on its north pole!

he is the ruler of this world….saturn and the restrictive pull….holding the cube together….restriction….binding…..saturn is all about holding you back

he is the timelord…saturn/chronos is where we get the word “chronology” from..saturn is known as the black cube as said before

so…..this is why saturn is represented as a black cube!

the tau holds the centre…and tau is saturn….the letter tau represents the planet saturn!

saturn holds this 3D world together…….or in biblical terms…satan is the ruler of the world!

and saturns colour is black……again…hence the black cube

what about the 12 letters?……in the sepher yetzirah pic above….notice the star on the outside with the 12 rays?

they represent the 12 constellations of the zodiac….and one of the edges on the cube….they represent also 12 gates

the letter heh represents aries in the zodiac…and in the cube above it represents north east….can you see it on the cube….it is one of the edges of the cube…….

vau represents taurus and south east

zain is gemini is the east above

cheth is cancer is east below

teth is leo is north above

yod is virgo is north below

lamed is libra is north west

nun is scorpio is south west

samekh is sagittarius is west above

ayin is capricorn  is west below….just a wee sidenote…the hebrew letter ayin means “eye” and it corresponds with capricorn….capricorn is the goat…..capricorn is ruled by the planet saturn/satan……now do you see another connection with the eye of the devil/satan/the goat…or the “evil eye”…….it’s nature and the zodiac…and the hebrew letters…..incidentally…..the film “eye of the devil” was sharon tates first film…(sharon tate was murdered by charles mansons group of followers in the 60’s)………….the film was originally called 13 and at the end….(spoiler alert…he he) david niven has to pay for the poor wine harvest by giving his life up……he stands in the middle of 12 hooded men in a circle……now I wonder what that represents….it couldn’t be the zodiac…could it?

(david niven’s character is representing the sun….and the man shoots him with an arrow….the horseman being sagittarius…..the man with the bow and arrow rides a white horse….isn’t there a verse in revelation about a rider with a bow on a white horse?….the one who pierces the sun with the spear or arrow to send him off to death…..(jesus was pierced with a spear)….and then you see his son…..the new ruler to be!…………………………… just as the new sun is born on december 25th each year)

(I originally had the clip of the film here to watch…but the clip has been removed from youtube….sorry folks!)

however its an allegory of the zodiac and the year…..if you watch the film…you will see it in a whole different way if you remember these things

its the greatest story ever told and the never ending story…and you will see it throughout many films,operas,books

in fact joseph campbell called it the monomyth

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monomyth#Summary

when you read the summary on the wiki page above….think of frodo in lord of the rings,neo in the matrix,harry potter

back to the cube

tzaddi is aquarius is south above

and finally the last edge of the cube

qoph is pisces is south below

3 dimensions…aleph….mem….shin

tau holds the cube together…this is why saturn/satan..the letter tau rules the world…the 3 dimensional world

satan/saturn is the prince of darkness/winter…..he blinds and binds people

2 Corinthians 4:4New Living Translation (NLT)

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

and isn’t it interesting that in revelation 21 talking about the new jersusalem

Revelation 21

2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

hi look the bride is ready for her husband…there’s gonna be some hieros gamos shenanigans going on!

10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 11It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 13There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. 14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

notice it is shaped like a cube?

……….and it has 12 gates?

and the names of the 12 tribes of israel on them?

the 12 tribes of israel are the 12 signs of the zodiac….

the 12 edges of the cube pictured above are the twelve gates

every one of us on this earth are one of the 12 tribes of israel…..I’m of the tribe of aquarius myself

15The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. 16The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadiac in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 17The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubitsd thick.e 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.f 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.

again…. the angel measured it and it is 1200 stadia in length…breadth and height...length breadth and height are the 3 dimensions……and also if you remember…aleph…mem…and shin…the 3 dimensional hebrew letters…new jerusalem is a cube!

can you see it’s all about the zodiac?….each one of those stones mentioned in the verses above equate with one of the zodiac signs

it also works with the musical scale………a piano has 88 keys…..yet it only ever has 12 notes to pick from…..hmmm…12 notes….number 12 again….and seven of those notes are the white keys…ADCDEFG…..seven notes?….could they equate with the 7 planets?

and also the 7 months of light in the earth?…aries,taurus,gemini,cancer,leo,virgo,libra……these are the 7 candles in the menorah…the 7 months of light….before the sting of the scorpion “bites” and kills the sun and light for 5 months

 

so the 5 black keys on the piano…they are the 5 zodiacal winter signs….scorpio,sagittarius,capricorn,aquarius and pisces….the winter months….before the lamb of god arrives to bring the light back to the northern hemisphere!

those 5 months of winter starting with scorpio are told of in revelation also

revelation 9:1-5

1The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes.

the abyss is winter…l’inverno…the inferno…..hell is cold…..yet it burns everything away in it’s cold fire

and you have scorpions and 5 months……..

and again…isn’t it interesting that revelation says that there will be a new song?

The Lamb and the 144,000
2And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps. 3And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth. 4These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb.…

also in revelation….has it ever struck you that it might be a bit about time?

24 elders being 24 hours of the day

and isn’t it strange that there are 1440 minutes in a day?….take it to the third level and you get 144000………now isn’t that strange….almost like the day…the year and the great year…the 3

if you’ve read and understood my previous blogs……the 4 living creatures and the lamb should strike a chord….and talking about chords

the occult teachings say that aleph…mem…and shin…the three mother letters in music correspond to the 1st 3rd and 5th notes of a scale or mode….which make the major triad

whether its really occult teachings or pareidolia……you decide!

rough ashlarknow thyself!

thanks for reading……again please share these blogs if you think they are interesting!

 

the soular journey

This is it the apocalypse…….

I’m waking up

I feel it in my bones/enough to make my systems blow

welcome to the new age

-the imagine dragons

this is another long blog……so let’s get going!

do you remember the 4 elements?….earth…air…fire and water?

again……two are male…and two female

fire and air are male principles…the upward pointing triangles…or blades

….earth and water are female elements….downward pointing triangles…or chalices

Level-45-03-elements1

the male elements represent the day/light/jesus/lingam

the female principles represent the night/darkness/lucifer/yoni

 

now get this…..the sun sets every evening in the west

if you watch it going down…it will descend into one of the female elements

if you’re near the sea…it will descend into water

if you’re on land….it will descend into the earth

the sun is going down into darkness/death/hell….in the west……..can you see how the two elements earth and water represent darkness and the feminine?…..exactly pictured as the black section of the yin/yang….and the west is also feminine

and every year the feminine/dark part is the autumn/winter

and if you watch the sun rise in the east…it comes out of those two female elements…earth or water….. and rises into the air (a male element)

and you will see the fire/light….feel the heat from the fire (the other male element) in the sky

can you see the two male elements in this daily drama?….fire and air?

this is why the female/winter colours are black and red…..nighttime…think santa/satan/saturn

now in my blog about the 7 planets I wrote that each planet had a “good” and “bad” side

santa is the “good” side of saturn…..santa even has the appearance of old father time/kronos…..the long white beard….santa also represents revelry…think of office christmas parties….then google saturnalia and you will see some interesting comparisons

its also why the devil is either red/scarlet….or black!

and you also have scarlet women…and black widows!

and remember capricorn in midwinter is ruled by saturn…saturn’s colour? …black

and mars exalts in capricorn….mars colour is red!

what is the difference between satan and the devil?

satan is black from saturn….the colour of saturn in alchemy is black

and the red devil with his pitchfork/trident (letter shin is a trident….shin means tooth and trident means 3 teeth)….the colour red is due to mars exalting in capricorn!…mars is the red planet and red in alchemy!

again see the correspondences?

and the summer colours are blue and gold/yellow….daytime

the sky is blue…and the golden sun

once you start to see the correspondences…you will recognise the patterns…and start to see them everywhere….the zodiac is the circle of life….it’s a natural cycle that happens in everything from atoms to universes

now ponder on this……us as humans are on the earth in bodies mostly consisting of water and earth….this is the miry clay of the bible
(
see psalm 40)

now if we were a miniature sun….(or had a miniature sun inside us…a soul/sol/solar thingy)……in what season/time of day would that inner sun be?

nighttime or winter…….we reside in bodies of earth and water….in the dark….hell

again the female elements (earth/water) represent darkness/matter or hell…or the underworld!

underworld meaning the 6 months of darkness of the sine wave in the picture below

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
NOTICE THE BOTTOM PART OF THE ZODIACAL YEAR IS CONNECTED WITH DARKNESS/NON-GROWTH….IN OTHER WORDS HELL RULED BY SATURN….TIME/DIMENSION

according to occult teachings we are in the “hellish” or autumn/winter part of the cycle….see the fall of man blog for more on that

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/libra-the-scales-judgment-day-and-the-fall-of-man/

and this is the meaning behind being baptized in water….we are now in bodies of water!

now to get up to the daytime/heaven…….or air and fire section/heaven

RA 200
THIS IS THE “HEAVENLY” PART OF THE ZODIACAL CYCLE OR YEAR

also known as the royal arch in freemasonry

we need to have a new birth…..to be born again….just as the sun is born again at the winter solstice

this is the baptism of fire!

Matthew 3:11
“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

see the two baptisms in the verse above?

the water baptism signifying the sol/souls residence in water and earth….human bodies…the underworld/autumn/winter part of the zodiac!

and the fire baptism for the royal arch summer/heaven part of the zodiac of the soul/sol/inner sun!

to do that we need to awaken the “sun” inside us….the soul/sol while we are yet in the dark part of the cycle….just as the sun is born in the midst of darkness at the winter solstice at christmas!

or we need the dormant seed inside us to start to grow in the earth and water of our bodies

matter gives birth to spirit

this is what the artist is telling us as he illustrated isis/the feminine

http://www.wikiart.org/en/odilon-redon/i-am-still-the-great-isis-none-has-yet-lifted-my-veil-my-fruit-is-the-sun-plate-16-1896

and also the meaning of the phrase at the bottom of the picture of the saitic isis

File0024“the fruit which I have brought forth is the sun”

isis is matter…the feminine principle

again……..matter gives birth to spirit….isis gives birth to the sun/soul/sol

the darkest part of the year gives birth to the new light…isis/matter/ice/darkness/crystallization gives birth to the new sun on december 25th….and the new sun is circumcised on jan 1st….8 days after christmas……the old cycle/ring/circular tip of the penis is clipped off and the new sun is born……

8 days after xmas is new years day….january 1st!

and what are the chances that the feast of the circumcision of christ is on january 1st?

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

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

and in the bible….the newborn babies had to wait 8 days to be circumcised

genesis 17:12

the penis and the sun are linked…as above so below…..(remember the fool card in a previous blog?)

the fruit of isis is the sun/son…the new male….horus

in christianity….jesus…the sun/son of god

this again is another symbolism of why freemasons are called “widows sons”

suns/sons of isis the widow

this is what all the occult teachings say…..and interestingly…so did jesus when speaking to nicodemus

john chapter 3

Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.

‘How can someone be born when they are old?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!’

. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again.” The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.

you need to awaken the spirit inside you….its a new birth from spirit inside you……its the spark in you

its an awakening to higher consciousness!

that’s how it’s spoken of in the bible……..

and many other religious texts

however…in the allegory of fairy stories its the sleeping princess waiting to get kissed by the prince

in the golden dawn and ordo templi orientis……(order of the eastern temple)  OTO its called the knowledge and conversation of the holy guardian angel

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

its where the legend of the guardian angel comes from….its awakening our higher inner self/higher consciousness!

the two forces in the universe….are a pushing out (male) and a pulling in (female/attractive)

that attracting magnetic female force is the force we have to break free from….its the “opposing satan” (the female attracting force) in scripture

and its difficult……people like the attractive female dark force…its like a comfy womb in which humans who aren’t paying attention are kept in….its ignorance/darkness which will lull people into a false sense of security….its being kept in the dark……not being able to handle the light/truth of things….also willful ignorance because people realize that if they have to take on board something that will disturb their lifestyle in any way….or will bring them any hardship…they generally shy away from it

that is why there are billions of people stuck in the dark/comfortable womblike religions in the world….every one of them thinking they are the right religion

however it’s not a good thing to be comfortable………

this is why jesus said…exert yourselves to enter the narrow door

Luke 13:24-26Expanded Bible (EXB)

24 “·Try hard [Strive; Exert yourself] to enter through the narrow door, because many people [L I tell you] will try to enter there, but they will not be able. 25 When the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you ·can [L begin to] stand outside and knock on the door and say, ‘·Sir [Lord], open the door for us.’ But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’ 26 Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in the streets of our town.’

also did you notice the two elements mentioned in john chapter 3 verse 5?

Jesus answered, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit

….one is female…water…and one male…air (spiritus)

this is the equinox…….the meeting of the two forces in your body….the male and the female…

look again at the words in john 3:8

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.

the wind/air/masculine element blows to meet the water/female element………the male and female

and we know what happens when the male and female come together…..things happen…births and stuff!

and if the spark doesn’t happen…..what happens to the egg in the woman every month?

it is flushed out…….the water and earth in her body is expelled….she has her period

and her body starts the next cycle…….to get to the summer part of the cycle of the soul……you need to provide the inner spark/born again/enlightenment/awakening/spirit…..male

the egyptians called the part of the cycle which we are in right now….amenta…we are in the underworld…..the winter of our souls cycle

this is why the egyptians had a book called the book of the dead……..we are the dead…..this is also why it’s called the fall/autumn of man

when we enter matter through the gates (vagina) of mater/mother/matter/meri/martha/maya/isis

its also why in psalm 23……(can you see already where I’m going with this?)

“Even though I walk
  through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.”

we are walking in that darkest valley…right now…we are in bodies of matter…the winter cycle of our inner zodiac

….and simply put….we need to find the spark inside us to move to the next part of the cycle which starts with the lamb of aries in the zodiac

the light part of the zodiac/heaven/nirvana….etc etc

or we return right back here….reincarnation……according to the occult teachings

carne…means meat….flesh……we return in the flesh

that is also why it says that satan is the ruler of this world…….satan is saturn…saturn rules the wintertime…the earth and water…that is why capricorn is not just a goat…..capricorn is the sea goat…the earth and water…its the two female elements in symbolism

il_570xN.368473591_tvd0are you getting the patterns yet?

and when that spark does awaken the soul..sol….sun…within you…..(remember it is born in the middle of winter)….on xmas day……..in the midst of darkness…ruled by saturn/satan…it will be a tough experience….because everyone around you is in darkness/ignorance

its called the dark night of the soul

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=the+dark+night+of+the+soul&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=rcs&gfe_rd=cr&ei=ykk0VJmHFsvH8gfW44KoDA

it’s an awakening experience…when you realize things arent as you once thought!…….when I discovered the truth about my religion as a jehovah’s witness…..it truly was amazing and tough at the same time…it was a roller coaster experience

seeing everyone around me still in complete ignorance/darkness and being “born again” (in other words awakening to the lies)/awake/aware myself was a surreal experience…….in other words…..I could see that the witnesses around me were actually in deep ignorance of any real truth….and the ironic thing is…they all say that they are in “the truth”

jehovah’s witnesses call their religion “the truth”

and yet they are in deep ignorance…….accepting the lie…loving the lie!

and they resented me for trying to even briefly mentioning anything contrary to what they have been programmed to believe!

and I’m sure every jehovah’s witness that went through that awakening themselves will relate to what I’m saying

its a surreal/tough journey….that not many people can take…why?

let jesus answer!

john 3:19,20

19“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.…

the witnesses still stuck in that organisation are truly “the blind”…..they refuse to come to the light….the truth…..they refuse to even look at the light of truth…it is too bright for them……..they cannot see god and live….it is too high a hurdle for most of them…and they remain in their sin….sin meaning “darkness”/ignorance…(see the aries and the lamb of god blog for more)

as jesus said….men love the darkness

jeremiah 9:6

New International Version
You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me,” declares the LORD.

they will not accept the truth…they prefer the comfort/reward/adulation their (in some cases) willful ignorance and darkness give them

what is it like trying to awaken one who is fast asleep with a bucket of cold water?…..you are going to get opposition from them are you not?

when people are asleep…they dream….and jehovah’s witnesses are dreaming of their utopia which will never arrive from outside…it can only arrive from within!

carljung132738

and again….can you see the allegory…..when jesus says…satan is the father of the lie?

john 8:44

New International Version
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

darkness is when we sleep….and light is when we work…………

again….it is very difficult to look at the sun…the light…..god

only the word can describe the light to us…and jesus/the truth is the word

going back to the egyptians and amenta…….the egyptians say that we come into amenta through the duat or tuat…..

now we come into this realm through the woman…see the female and darkness motif again?…..and her gates between her legs are the entrance to this realm as I said above

the duat/tuat is the twat of the woman

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

we drop or fall (fall of man) into this heavy reality of earth and water through the womans gateway into dimension and time ruled by saturn

(look out for my blog the perfect ashlar for more on the dimensions and time)

and the opposite of falling would be rising…and doesn’t the bible say that the dead will rise on the last day?

just as the penis rises….and ejects life/light/rays/spermatozoa out of itself

and didn’t the apostle paul say we would all be caught up in the air?

1st thessalonians 4:17

17Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

the rapture is akin to an orgasm!

the heading up to heaven which is the royal arch part of the zodiac

RA 200

the soul/sol/inner sun heading back round the zodiac to the light part of the cycle

in revelation its symbolised by meeting the lamb (aries) on the heavenly mount!

and for some people…judgment at the other…the libra part of the cycle…..heading back down into matter

or another way of saying it

the separating of the sheep and the goats

the sheep being aries/spring and the goats being the winter/capricorn….matter ruled by satan in his lake of fire!

some of the occult teachings talk about it as a musical scale

now a musical scale or ladder (jacobs ladder) has 7 notes…ABCDEFG…the seven planets

however….when they go up…they octave to a higher scale

to science…we are evolving

to religion we are ascending

religion says though that most wont ascend

the road is narrow…and few are the ones finding it

most religions all talk about the spark of divinity within

freemasonry calls it the blazing star…or sirius!

read how important this teaching is to freemasonry

http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/masonic-blazing-star.html

however back to the two principles

the bible is always only talking about these two forces…the male and the female

albeit poetically and allegorically

in the beginning god created them male and female

adam and eve

eastern religions have the yin and yang

the jews have abraham and sara

the hindus have brahma and saraswati

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

notice in the wiki page above that saraswati helps brahma in the creation,maintenance and destruction of the universe?

those three things are the cardinal signs of the zodiac are…..brahma and saraswati…..its the creator in its male/female form

fixed signs are the maintenance…are the 4 elements…..are vishnu/lakshmi…is the preserver…are the 4 elements…are the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac

and shiva the destroyer whose female counterpart is parvati….stands for the mutable signs of the zodiac….see the earlier blogs for more info…….they destroy the seasons

these also are the trinity of the bible…..and the focus of thousands of artists

the trinity is creation/maintenance and destruction…the cycles of nature

however……here’s a spoiler alert!

abraham and sara are brahma and saraswati……..they are the two principles…..male and female

put an “A” in front of brahma and you get abrahma…abram…abraham

take the swatti from saraswatti and you get sara…they are the same thing…not real people…allegories/principles/concepts!

in egypt they are osiris and isis

osiris is the male principle that is born again after lying in the tomb…..the tomb is the feminine dark

remember isis says the fruit I have brought forth is the sun….osiris/lazarus/jesus/horus

osiris is lazarus………the male principle …the male element

and remember back to the start of the blog…the sun always rises from the earth and water

that is why those in heaven will be standing with the lamb of aries on mount zion in the amazing pictorial book of revelation!

mt3notice the elect have the fathers name written on their foreheads?

remember in the body zodiac what sign represents the forehead?

aries…the lamb……..

did you also know that in the brain the part that controls all of your VOLUNTARY ACTIONS is called the cerebrum…….and isn’t cere/brum awfully close to sara/abram?

ceres is also the goddess of virgo……and the harvest….ceres is the virgin….christ/light/thoughts is born from the virgin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceres_%28mythology%29

I’m sure if you sit and ponder on these things…you will see all sorts of connections…….

and ……..if you can understand these things you are on your way!

again….please share these blogs if you find them interesting

cheers!
