“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
in christianity…..mary is called the eternal virgin……virgin mary
who or what is mary and why the eternal virgin?
in fact this eternal virgin is known by many….MANY names
lets see just a few
ceres…..interesting name…the word “cereal” comes from ceres…..more in the blog about that later
rhea….seen in the picture below with a lion……..here’s a wee question….why are goddesses and lions often seen together?
here’s another virgin goddess with a lion below…una and the lion by briton riviere
according to the book “sex symbolism in religion” the lion represents the male fiery sexual energy…the phallus and testicles…and “una” means the “yoni”
as do the words iona…jonah…una…..uma…….and when you yawn…what shape does your mouth make?…its the circle again!…the yawni/yoni….all representing the female principle (the yoni)
for more info on this aspect of symbolism…an eye opening read is james ballantyne hannay’s book “sex symbolism in religion”
I used that book for most of the content of the blog…”sex and religion”
and we have the picture of diana and the lion by angelo van courten
again she holds the arrow….one reason being diana is the goddess of hunting….and also the arrow is a male sexual symbol…….that said….a symbol has many meanings and depths for those who dig for them
also….look at where the quiver is placed….the “container” for the arrows
and there is also an astrological meaning to this picture…..lets see what it means
diana is the goddess of the moon…right?
and the lion is a representation of the sun
well the height of the summer in the northern hemisphere happens to occur in two zodiac signs
cancer and leo….representing the moon and sun
why the moon and sun?
well……. wouldn’t you know….the only house of the zodiac that the moon/diana rules over is….cancer!
and the house of the sun is leo….the lion
notice all the other planets rule two houses in the zodiac
saturn rules capricorn and aquarius
mars rules aries and scorpio
mercury rules gemini and virgo
venus rules both taurus and libra
jupiter rules pisces and sagittarius
the moon and sun rule only one house each…and they are both at the height of summer…..right next to each other!
the moons colour is silver…feminine colour…silver is the metal of the moon
and the sun gold…masculine colour…gold is the metal of the sun
cancer is also a water sign!
leo is a fire sign!
water is the female principle…and fire is the male principle!
it is the balance between the two polarities…male and female……again its another symbol like the yin/yang
or as harper collins the book publishers symbolise it
the male and female together at the height of summer/light/warmth/growth/happiness
the unicorn is also a representation of the moon…the white unicorn
and again the lion is a representation of the sun…the golden mane being like the golden rays
so when shown in heraldry it is saying that the rulership is likened to the glorious summer in cancer and leo!
however… back to this blog and the next sign in the zodiac after cancer and leo….is virgo ……“the eternal virgin”
this “eternal virgin” is called the goddess of ten thousand appellations
the goddess isis was also called “the virgin of the world”
in the book “the secret teachings of all ages” it tells us of an inscription on a column at nysa in arabia
“I am Isis, Queen of this country. I was instructed by Mercury. No one can destroy the laws which I have established. I am the eldest daughter of Saturn, most ancient of the gods. I am the wife and sister of Osiris the King. I first made known to mortals the use of wheat. I am the mother of Orus the King. In my honor was the city of Bubaste built. Rejoice, O Egypt, rejoice, land that gave me birth!”
did you notice she was instructed by mercury?
and notice she also says this…….. “I first made known to mortals the use of wheat.”
and wouldn’t you know………..the zodiacal sign of virgo has this symbol
notice the sign of virgo is a woman holding a stalk of wheat?
see the connection between “ceres” and “cereal?”
and isis says she taught mortals the use of wheat…coincidence?
wheat and cereals?
the planet mercury rules the house of virgo (see the chart above)…and didn’t isis say she was taught by mercury?
look at the date above….august and september…..virgo is the time of harvest
she also mentions she is a daughter of saturn…….and a symbol of saturn is a sickle used for harvesting….so there is a connection to saturn
virgo is connected with harvesting plant life and the seed
saturn is connected with harvesting everything on this earth…flesh included…he is the “grim” reaper after all
did you also notice the two houses of the zodiac which saturn rules over in the above picture?
aquarius and capricorn…the man with the water pitcher to the left and the goat to the right
however look at this link between saturn and virgo the virgin…and the broken column
we see saturn (old father time with his long white beard…and his sickle) combing the hair of the virgin..(virgo)..and virgo holding the wheat….this is harvest time
why the broken column?……..well in virgo…the sun has passed its highest point and its rays are weakening…..summertime is almost over……or the erect phallus is no more…the virgin/matter/woman has harvested the seed/semen of the male…remember the sun and the penis rays/semen/seed…. bring life to matter/mater/mother/matrix/soil
the broken pillar is the loss of strength of the phallus/sun after giving it’s life force (sun-rays…penis-semen)
notice also the three steps in both pictures showing the relevance to the third degree of freemasonry
however……back to virgo
virgo is also known as the house of bread in the zodiac
did you know that bethlehem means…”house of bread?”
again virgo is tied to the harvest…the wheat….the bread…and also to the bible
for instance…….wasn’t jesus born in bethlehem…the house of bread?
at the winter solstice (christmas) when the new sun starts its yearly journey…. the sign of virgo can be seen in the sky
and isis is the dark soil (matter) which gives birth to the wheat every year when the sun impregnates her with his rays
and in anatomical astrology the sign of virgo is in the belly
and wouldn’t you know…….when a woman is pregnant we sometimes say she has a bun in the oven
its the house of bread in the human body
and anyone who has played the game of “operation” will know all about the “bread basket”
can you see the connection between isis and virgo?
and again……. she is also the virgin mary (and all the other goddesses)
because mary is isis……….nature……MOTHER nature
on the front of the temple of isis in the city of sais an inscription read
“I, Isis, am all that has been, that is or shall be; No mortal man hath ever me unveiled. The fruit which I have brought forth is the ‘SUN’.”
so jesus was born in bethlehem …the house of bread…and of a virgin…and if you’ve been reading my blogs you’ll have noticed the quote from thomas paine saying that the story of jesus is a parody of the sun
and wouldn’t you know…….isis says above……..”the fruit I have brought forth is the sun”…….jesus is a representation of that sun/light
isis is the darkness that produces the sun/light
isis had a son named horus
and horus had an enemy….called seth…or set……..set is an old name for saturn/satan
and jesus is the son/sun of god…who has an enemy called satan/saturn…why?
because the are both allegories of the same thing…light and darkness!
seth and set are satan/saturn…..the darkness/cold/winter
horus is jesus…who is the son/sun of isis/mary/virgo…the eternal virgin
and jesus is the lamb of god……….the light returns to the world in aries
isis is also mary………mare…the sea……water……..virgin mare =pure water
you get the words “maritime” “marine” from “mare” the water
aren’t you born from the waters of your mother?…..she is isis/mary to you
didn’t her “ark” deliver you through the flood when her waters broke after 40 weeks?
the “ark” is the female sexual organ…..the container that preserves life
as above so below
didn’t life on the land come from the sea?……. that is a representation of mary…..isis …the goddess
“virgin mare” is “pure water”
doesn’t all life require water?
that is why water and the moon is connected to isis……..doesn’t the moon affect the waters on this earth?
the moon affects the tides….the emotions are the watery part of our thinking….our opinions can be swayed like the movable waters by very clever manipulation from others
mary or isis or the matrix…….is all around you….it is nature
notice the moon on her head….she is the divine feminine……..she is sophia…mary…..isis
she holds her breast out to feed the child…..showing the nourishing part of nature….mother earth feeds her children from her own breast
productive nature is the source of nutrition for plant…animal……and human life…..nourishing all things from herself
and hence that is also what the figure of virgo tells us by holding out the stalk of wheat
nature nourishes her children……virgo holding out the wheat shows she nourishes her children
she is sometimes black in colour….or wears a black robe symbolizing she has no light in herself
she only reflects the light from the sun.as does the moon..and the soil only starts giving of its fruit when the sun arrives to give it life
now with that in mind……you might get the allegory of jesus stopping the wasteful flow of blood from the woman
jesus the sun returns to bring back life to the earth
the black colour is also suggestive of death and decay…the darkness in matter
just like the woman was in a condition of death and decay before jesus arrived!
notice once more…the black robe………it is yet another cultures representation of the black colour in the yin/yang sign……..yin is the female sign….the black/night/winter part of nature/unfruitful/unfulfilled until the return of the light!
notice also she stands on a square?
this is because she represents the four elements….earth…air….fire and water…..matter
she is matter and matter consists of those four elements that act as a foundation or platform from which things grow
it is the altar for change to occur
the sun is the fire and isis is the water (think of the lion and una pic above)….again the two forces of nature…..the positive and negative…male and female…….active and passive…the dueling dragons….the twin spiral in dna……yin and yang….romeo and juliet….the two serpents on the pole or staff of mercury..and on and on!
this is why you can see black madonnas all over the world in many cultures
all of those cultures weren’t copying one another!
the dark virgin concept/image/symbol comes from inside mans psyche and he projects it out into images and worship all over the world…..and the differences are because everybody sees things on the earth from a different point of view (point of you!)
nature/isis/mary is the invisible black soil which produces and sustains life…again… it nourishes all things by itself
the black colour also stands for decay and death…….by the processes of death and corruption isis/mary/nature/the queen of heaven…. gives life to a number of creatures of many kinds through periods of constant change
however…..mother nature can also be a bitch!
page 130 in the book “secret teachings of all ages” says this
“The statue of Isis was placed on a pedestal of dark stone ornamented with rams’ heads. Her feet trod upon a number of venomous reptiles. This indicates that Nature has power to free from acidity or saltness all corrosives and to overcome all impurities from terrestrial corruption adhering to bodies. The rams’ heads indicate that the most auspicious time for the generation of life is during the period when the sun passes through the sign of Aries.”
again…remember that the exalting sun in aries is the lamb of god who takes away the sins/impurities of the world as it says in the above passage
its like the old egg in the uterus being discarded and the new one arriving to start the new cycle in the womans body
notice the connection with aries and isis/virgo/mary
“so mary really did have a little lamb”….. virgo/mary gave birth to aries the lamb of god/jesus
(and in the picture of “una and the lion” there is also a lamb in the picture…coincidence?)
notice the scales?……..isis/nature holds everything in balance
she steers the boat of life (also in her right hand)
notice the balance of the male and female…the sun and moon in her ears
on her breasts are the wheat and the grapes……which signify the bread and the wine now used in christianity…wheat=bread…….grapes=wine
they are on her breasts to show the bounty that she bestows on her children
notice now the connections to the catholic church…..mary and the bread and wine?
the eucharist or holy communion……
again in the above picture there is a snake eating its own tail right behind her head (ouroboros)
a snake sheds its skin so this is a symbol of the renewal of life…(and again its another reference to the connection of the virgin and saturn)……..this renewal takes place every year at the winter solstice ruled by saturn in capricorn
it is the birth of the sun on christmas day
and in the stalk of corn in virgo’s hand are the seeds of the new life to arrive next spring in the sign of aries
do you see the connections?
back to the picture of isis though
in her left hand isis carries a sistrum
the sistrum is the yonic symbol of purity
and she carries a golden square in her left hand
again stands for the 4 elements earth/air/fire and water which she (nature/isis/mary/virgo/matter) regulates
all things are transmuted and regenerated according to the harmony of the 4 elements in nature
isis also stands between two pillars……jachin and boaz in freemasonry……also mentioned in the bible in connection with solomons temple
1st kings 7:21
21 He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.
(they are also the two pillars on the tree of life in kabbalah…the pillar of severity and the pillar of mercy)
and also the tropic of cancer and tropic of capricorn!
the middle pillar on the kabbalah tree of life is the equator
and notice she is also represented by the high priestess card in tarot
can you see any correspondences with any of the pictures above?
notice the headwear….the moon?
the pomegranates are symbols of fertility with the red colour and seeds
what about the flowing robe….don’t women have a flow every month?
what about the word menstruation?……the etymology of that word is connected to the moon
do you think there could be a connection between the virgo/mother nature and the ram/lamb in another way?
what about the shape of the uterus compared to a rams head?
the womans monthly flow is like the flow of the tide……again connected to the moon (moonthly flow)
and remember that is why the full moon has to be there at easter waiting for her bridegroom……the sun…the male energy returning to bring about life to his waiting bride by impregnating her every year at the annual marriage feast of cana
when the woman is fertile she is likened to the full moon
its the bridegroom returning to awaken his bride with a kiss to start the new growth…it is the annunciation..the holy spirit overcoming (coming over) mary/matter
after the sun passes over (the passover) the threshold (equator/spring equinox) from the darkness of winter to the growth of the new year
again this is called the hieros gamos or sacred marriage
and dont husbands carry their wives over the threshold on the wedding night?
that is also the passover
(as above so below as in heaven also upon earth)
throwing confetti or rice at a wedding is a representation of the male orgasm and the husband removes the veil from his wife…(more sexual symbolism) and the connection to the apocalypse (uncovering) and revelation (revealing)…..removing the veil and the christ returning to marry his virginal bride) to impregnate the start of the new era/age…and the sexual symbolism keeps going on….because it all comes from fertility rites disguised as religion
and a similar thing happens every year when the sun orgasms his rays onto the earth/isis/mary to fertilize her
can you now see the imagery personified in the bible when the holy ghost overcomes mary and impregnates her with the new baby jesus
this is celebrated as the annunciation on march 25th
so she is impregnated on march 25th (spring equinox)………count nine months on and you come to december 25th…the birth of jesus…the sun/son of god
what do you think it means when the angel gabriel says “the holy spirit will come on you?”
luke 1:35 (new international version)
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
the holy spirit of the suns rays perform the same function as the ejaculating male member
and again……it’s not dirty or forbidden to speak about…….it’s only nature and the way it works….and the zodiac!
again if you think these blogs would be interesting to anyone you know…please share them
cheers…and thanks for reading!
