Thinking Outside The Box.

think-outside-the-box

Hello,fellow peoples of the planet!

Before this blog gets underway,I would again like to talk a little about my former religion…as the title of this blog “Thinking outside the box,” is the last thing any Jehovah’s Witness would be allowed or able to do,without disobeying the organization.

As an example of this,ask any Jehovah’s witness you know, to tell you the date of Jesus’ “presence” or “arrival” on this earth and they will give you one date….1914!

They are constantly told that this 1914 date is a solid fact,and “The Watchtower” has always consistently taught this.Take these examples below.

1/”Jehovah’s witnesses pointed to the year 1914, decades in advance, as marking the start of “the conclusion of the system of things.” Awake! 1973 Jan 22 p.8.

Notice it says in the above passage that “the conclusion of the system of things” started in 1914,and that they pointed to this decades in advance.

2/In 1993…the Watchtower was saying this.

The Watchtower has consistently presented evidence to honesthearted students of Bible prophecy that Jesus’ presence in heavenly Kingdom power began in 1914.” Watchtower 1993 Jan 15 p.5

However,since the rank and file members are not allowed to think outside their box,they are completely hamstrung as to offering any argument against anyone who has an informed/opposite view of things.

In fact Jehovah’s Witnesses actually taught that Jesus arrived in 1874, (not 1914) up until the year 1943! “Not a lot of JW’s know that” (in a Michael Caine voice”) :).

Here are two clippings from 1921/1922 showing they were still teaching that Jesus arrived in 1874 (not 1914) during the 1920’s.(Whereas,now they claim they have consistently taught he arrived in 1914)

1874-watchtower-1922-nov-1-p333
Notice it says Jesus appeared “beyond a doubt” in 1874.

1874-harp-of-god-1921-p231

The book “God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached” (written in 1973) says this at the bottom of page 209 and the top of page 210.

In the year 1943 the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society published the book “The Truth Shall Make You Free.” This moved forward the end of six thousand years of man’s existence into the decade of the 1970’s. Naturally this did away with the year 1874 C.E. as the date of return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the beginning of his invisible presence or parousia. Page 324 of the above book positively says: “The King’s presence or parousia began in 1914.”” God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached p.209/210.

So according to the above quote they didn’t “do away” with the date of Jesus invisible presence from 1874 to 1914……until 1943!

Note also the use of the word “Naturally,” as if it’s no big deal.Yet Charles Taze Russell(died 1916) and Joseph Franklin Rutherford(died 1942,the year before the change) had no clue about this teaching…it wasn’t “naturally” at all! It was an uprooting of old doctrines and a planting of new doctrines.It was an upheaval!

I certainly never knew any of these teachings all the years I was a Jehovah’s Witness,and I know the vast majority of JW’s have no clue.They are taught that to question or look at any outside evidence,will both “confuse them” and will inevitably bring the wrath of Jehovah upon them.They will be thrown out of the organization.

Friends and family will no longer be able to speak to them.

Now that my friends is living “inside a box.” (a box of the mind).

It reminds me of the book and film “1984” where previous “inconvenient information” is put into the “memory hole.”

MemoryHole

It is a box that sounds so easy to open,it only takes a change of mind after all.

Yet it is the box of the mind,and the vast majority of JW’s will die for their (completely false) beliefs.

They are literally spellbound!…Their mind is “captive to a concept.”

They have a concept/spell or worldview in their minds and imaginations,that is found to be absurd with even the most cursory investigation.

See a previous blog “what’s in a word” for more on how words control our minds.

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2015/12/16/rites-and-spells-whats-in-a-word/

Another thing I’d like to bring up,before the blog gets underway is the bible story of David and Bathsheba,and take it from the “literal” to the beautiful myth that it is.

(c) The Bowes Museum; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation

Here’s a few of the verses from the book of 2nd Samuel,chapters 11 and 12 telling the story.

1/”In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.

2/ One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”

David,the warrior-king spies the beautiful Bathsheba bathing while out on his roof one night.

He then sends his messengers to bring her to him,which she does and then he proceeds to sleep with her…and then gets her pregnant.

history-of-the-world-part-i1

The only problem is,she’s already married to Uriah,one of David’s most loyal soldiers.

So what does David do?

He orders Uriah be sent to the front line of battle,where he is left to perish,as told in the verses below.

15 “Put Uriah out in front where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die.”

17 When the men of the city came out and fought against Joab, some of the men in David’s army fell; moreover, Uriah the Hittite died.

After a time of mourning,Bathsheba marries David and they have a son.However,we learn that God isn’t best pleased with this arrangement in verse 27.

“But the thing David had done displeased the Lord.”….(Uh Oh…King David is in trouble!!)

So God sends the prophet Nathan to David,who proceeds to tell him the following story.

“The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, “There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor. The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.

“Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.”

David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, “As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this must die! He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.”

Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man!”

david-and-nathan

David realizes the utter devastation he has caused….as punishment,the son he had with Bathsheba falls ill and dies.(A bit cruel to the innocent child don’t you think)

The thoroughly repentant and chastised David,comforts Bathsheba and they have another son.

24 “Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and made love to her. She gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon.”

It’s a pretty gruesome tale of deceit,murder and lust,but not to worry folks…..it isn’t real!

If you’ve been reading any of the previous blogs,you should be getting a grasp of the symbolism going on,because that is what it is…symbolism that tells us great things.

David is Mars….The Warrior King….and Bathsheba is Venus…the beautiful woman!

It is the tale of the two concepts or forces in yet another variation of the story.Whether it be the Knight at arms and the beautiful woman without mercy in the poem of Keats,or Romeo and Juliet in the story by Shakespeare.

Mars is the God of war,as is David the warrior king (Mars rules Aries,the start of spring).If you look again at verse 1 of the above passage of scripture it reads “In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war.

Spring starts in the month of March,and March comes from Mars!So of course they go off to war when Mars is on the scene!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March#Origin

Another thing that should help clue you in that we are talking astrology and the seven planets here is the name Bathsheba.

Bathsheba means “daughter of the seven” (The Queen of Sheba,should also mean something to you now)

http://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/bath-sheba/

The name “Solomon” means peace/harmony/wholeness…of course it does!

Again we have two of the seven planets contained in his name….Sol (the sun) and Mon (the moon).

When the sun and moon come together we have the holy marriage…the hieros gamos!

The balance of the male and female forces in nature(the two poles). When the two forces are balanced,there is harmony,when one side is stronger than the other,there is disharmony,and in us..bi-polar thinking/or black and white thinking…extremism!

Think of plate spinning,when the plate is balanced and centred,it will stay on the pole,however when the plate goes off balance by the pole not staying in the centre,due to the plate slowing,it is only a matter of time before things come crashing down.

plates_phone_cropped

Here are another few symbols of “Solomon”,or harmony/wholeness/peace below.

Cornucopia-Horn-Of-Plenty-Latin-6765-large
This is the cornucopia,or horn of plenty.It symbolizes both the male(the horn) and the female(the opening). And the harmony or fruitfulness due to the balance of the male and female.Also notice the female part of the symbol gives birth to the fruit (obviously).For anybody closely following this blog….the words of Isis(the eternal virgin) should also be of note.”The fruit I have brought forth is the sun.”

We can learn other things from this tale above.

The Messiah came from this family tree,in effect telling us that out of David’s (divides) unspeakable sin….perfection is born.

Out of the worst times,the saviour will come,out of the refuse of the sea,and out of the intense irritation and discomfort of the grit,the oyster will form a pearl.

oyster-pearl

Out of the worst situations in your life,even as a woeful consequence of your own mistakes…at some point the absolute best will arrive,if you keep going,keep your plate spinning! (the book of Job is telling us the same story in another form).

As is the book of Revelations,when it tells us of bad times on earth,yet the lamb is in the distance.(The light inevitably has to return….the cycle of god cannot be broken)

Before we get on to talk about the symbolism of the Hermetic Rose Cross,as promised in the last blog.Let us have another quick link between Isis/The weeping virgin and Saturn(Old Father time),again as has been discussed in the last few blogs.

This time we can see the link between the two on the American dollar.Now on previous blogs we saw that the alchemical colour of Venus and Saturn are respectively green and black.(See table 1 on the website below)

http://occult-advances.org/greatwork.shtml

We see yet another coincidence in that the colours of the dollar bill are green and black (they are called greenbacks).However,that may just be a coincidence..right?However we find more interesting symbolism on the dollar itself….we find the six pointed star of Saturn or Remphan also on the dollar.

great-seal-back-one-dollar-bill-1247480
You can see the stylized star of David above the eagles head.

Saturn is connected with the number 6….Saturn has a hexagon on it’s north pole.

And we have the virgin represented by the actual dollar sign…let’s have a look.

dollar
It looks like two “I”s and an “S.”

Now have a look at the Wikipedia entry below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar_sign#Greek_mythology

If you read the above Wikipedia page you will find that a lot of what is spoken of in this blog…the two pillars etc,are all found in there.

Money is the current (currency) of this world,it is the juice that fuels the machines of commerce.The two pillars above are also the two poles,the Jachin and Boaz,Anode and Cathode.The snake (serpent) is the electricity (orgasm) between the male and female that generates new life.

Искровой_разряд
See the fiery serpents?

And aren’t sperm also like little serpents or snakes? (As above so below..as within so without).

Next blog I will talk about the Succoth-Benoth,or “the festival of booths of daughters” in the bible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succoth-benoth

And give an alternative rendering of what it means in the bible,it will also continue the connection between Saturn and Venus/Old father time and the weeping virgin.

And with all that out of the way (phew),finally back to this blog about the Hermetic Rose Cross.

And here it is below in all it’s glory!

HermeticRoseCross

Click on the image to find a little white surprise in the centre of the rose.

The little white dot represents pure existence without size and dimension…it is infinite potentiality.

Kabbalists call this the ain,ain soph,ain soph aur…..three parts of nothingness that cannot be grasped.It is the germ of creation before creation begins.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ein_Sof

It is symbolized in many other ways,by differing peoples..

spiral f3940c11f7fc5d30a7257b079b5fcb16

But the rose and cross all stems from this little white dot.

But if we go even further inside the white point,the mystical teachings tell us that we are actually presented with a white cube.This is where again the 22 Hebrew letters,22 major tarot cards,the 22 connections of the tree of life between the 10 spheres,and also the Sefer Yetzirah come in….and you will hopefully see yet further connections to this amazing rose cross symbol above.

For the cube to even be a cube,a single point needs to spread out into three dimensions…namely up-down.left-right,forward and back…….the three!

The three dimensions then create seven positions (centre and six sides…see the previous blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on this) which give us the seven!

And twelve edges to the cube…….Gives us the twelve!

3+7+12=22!

As long as the cube or box is sealed…the whole of creation is put on hold,and as the amazing Lon Milo Duquette says (from whom I get a lot of this info) “it remains in a state of brooding potentiality.” They are the forest of trees hidden in the depths of the acorn.The inner that produces the outer.

It reminds me of Schrodingers cat…..is the cat in the box alive or dead…it’s only when you open it,or give attention to it,that it will give up it’s secret.It also reminds me of the double slit experiment..or wave particle duality….the waves become particles,only when observed/given attention.

In religion..prayed for!

In magic…incantations.

Bringing something out of the nothing/ain sof by intense thought and yearning!

This Will Mindfuck You: The Double-Slit Experiment

For the cube to initiate creation it must sacrifice itself on a cross,as it pops open like the rose cross above! (again see previous blog for more info).

We must think outside the box for it to happen to us,and when we do we move from potentiality to actuality….the little white cube opens to form the cross of six squares.(can you see this cross above?)

This is also telling us how spells work…and inventions!

When thought is given to the wave (observing),it manifests into this reality and becomes the particle!

Or when an inventor thinks intensely about an idea..and works on it with his hands….it becomes a reality…he has plucked it from the nothing and brought it into the material!

Or as Isis says…(Isis is the darkness)..”The fruit I bring forth is the sun”…she brings things from the darkness of thought into the light of this material existence!

However when we have our “boxing day” and we open the box…it reveals it’s secret treasure for us…it gives us a “gift.”

That gift is the rose of five petals….we have allowed the fifth element to resurrect us from the four elements to the fifth element…and we ourselves become like the Vitruvian man.

embody_healthThis five has symbolized the microcosm from time immemorial(five senses,five fingers,five extremities…head,legs,arms as the pic above shows.

“Every man and woman is a star”

fig1The white dot in the centre is actually like a nail that nails the microcosm(the five of the rose) to the macrocosm(the six squares of the cross).

Adam is made in the image of God etc.

Understanding that the rose of our being is wedded to the cross of the six is the goal of every spiritual seeker…and when we do,we realize that we aren’t a five or six,but an eleven…and again as Mr Duquette says….this is what is called “the great work.”

Behind the rose are four green barbs(you can’t really see them too well in the above pic,but they stand for four directions or “position,time,dimension and space.”).

When it does open,the small rose gives birth to the larger rose consisting of 22 petals,split into 3,7 and 12 leaves.(Again just as the Sefer Yetzirah talks about.)

In the three leaves pictured….the top leaf has the letter “Aleph” on it..the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet..Aleph also corresponds to the element “Air” and “The fool” tarot card.

The leaf on the left has the letter “Mem” on it…it corresponds to the element “Water” and “The hanged man” in the tarot.

The leaf on the right has the letter “Shin,” it is the element of fire and “The Aeon or Last Judgement/Resurrection” card in the tarot. (Isn’t it interesting that the bible says this world will end with fire…as the last one did with water).

We are talking two polarities…fire and water…male and female, and the balance/equator between the two principles!..the wavy line in the yin/yang…..the sine wave!

The secret of creation is in the wave!

Also interesting to note is what the kybalion says about the principle of rhythm.

rhythm

Note also that “aleph” is a yellow petal,”mem” a blue petal,and “shin” a red petal…these are the three primary colours.

Next we have seven petals,corresponding to the 7 planets,and it consists also of the 7 primary and secondary colours of the rainbow (and seven musical notes).

Going anti-clockwise from the 11 o’clock position,they are (letter,planet and tarot card) “Peh,Mars and the Tower”-Resh,The Sun and “The Sun” tarot card-Beth,Mercury and the Magician/Magus”-Daleth,Venus and the Empress-Gimel,the Moon and the High Priestess-Tav (although the above rose cross pic looks like the letter “Cheth” for some reason),Saturn and the World or Universe tarot card….and finally Kaph,Jupiter and the wheel of fortune card.

The last to burst forth are the twelve petals of primary,secondary and intermediate colours…the 12 signs of the zodiac.

Starting from top left and going anti-clockwise,we have the letters Heh,Vav,Zain,Cheth,Teth,Yod,Lamed,Nun,Samekh,Ayin,Tzaddi,Gimel.

These letters correspond respectively with the 12 signs of the zodiac….

Aries,Taurus,Gemini,Cancer,Leo,Virgo,Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius,Capricorn,Aquarius and Pisces.

And the 12 tarot cards…Emperor,Hierophant,Lovers,Chariot,Strength or lust(for life),Hermit,Adjustment/Justice,Death,Art/Temperance,Devil,Star and Moon.

So we have looked at two roses thus far,the small rose on the small cross,and the large rose…which is also on a larger cross.

The large rose and cross represent concepts,principals,forces and energies of the manifest universe.

The Hebrew mystics invented the four letters YHVH in order to meditate and analyse the vast oneness.(The all)They divided “the all” into four parts,as did all other cultures…4 directions,four winds,four seasons/4 corners of the earth..etc etc.They were either pictured by four animals,people,letters,symbols,and we can see the four worldwide in myths and paintings or carvings.(see previous blogs)

In Kaballah…the four are Atziluth,Briah,yetzirah and Assiah.These are the four levels of the macrocosm.

The microcosm is also divided into the four descending levels of the soul..Chiah…then Neshema,Ruach and Nephesh.

The four elements picture the same idea……Fire,water,air and earth.

And finally in the Tarot as Wands(clubs),Cups(hearts),Swords(spades) and Disks(diamonds).

image-217

The four arms of the large cross each represent one of these concepts..the left arm(red)represents Fire,the right arm(blue)is Water,the top arm(yellow) is Air,the lowest extremity of the bottom arm(green/brown) is Earth…The white square right below the rose is white and represents the fifth element…(ether). It does not belong to any of the suits alone…it pervades all of them,as it pervades everything in creation.

Lon Milo Duquette again tells us that everything consists of the four elements,and gives the illustration of hot magma which consists of fire(heat),water(it flows),earth(by nature) and exudes air (gas and steam).

A lovers quarrel is fiery(explosive),watery(emotions/tears)and airy(swift and communicative).

The “something” that binds the four elements and gives them their varying structure is the fifth element(spirit) and spirit is represented by the pentagram,and sometimes by the letter “e”…the fifth letter.

internet-explorer

The rose cross arms also contain some symbols on them..let’s have a further look!

Notice the pentagrams on each of the arms are all coloured different.They symbolize the five elements.Around each of the pentagrams are the symbols for the five elements,earth,air,fire,water and on top…spirit(the fifth element)

The white part below the centre with the star of David..is the 7 planets….The Sun is in the middle of the star of David…..See the blog sixes and sevens for more info!

Rose_Cross_Lamen.svg

At the extremities of the four arms are the 3 alchemical elements of sulphur,mercury and salt.

See them top left in this diagram.

tumblr_mdlayfbQU21qkd2d5o1_500

Lon Milo Duquette says this about them,quoting Aleister Crowley.salt sulphur mercury

Just as in the game paper,scissors,stone…none of the three have the upper hand,but each can “defeat” the other…the same principle applies to these three universal forces,therefore the cycle cannot become stagnant or stop…it is constantly in flux.One constantly trumps the other.

You will notice they are in different positions on the limbs of the cross,showing this continuous changing or flux.

The three symbols correspond with the three tarot cards..the Magus (Mercury),The Emperor (Sulphur) and the Empress (Salt).

In fact on the Emperor tarot card it shows his body position making the alchemical sign of sulphur…the triangle with the cross beneath.

thoth_emperor_large-694x1024
The two disks and head(another disk behind the head) make the triangle…and the crossed legs make the cross…notice the colours also….Sulphur is fiery,as is the look of the card.

These three principles are recognized in other cultures….look at the “Three Gunas” of Hindu philosophy….. Sattva,Raja and Tamas (interesting name Tamas..and what it stands for… if you’ve been following the blog that is!).

3-gunas-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gu%E1%B9%87a

“Sattva” is the balance,harmony (Mercury),”Raja” is the active and passionate(Sulphur) and Tamas is the darkness and destructive (Salt). (Hmm..Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt..did she not?)

You can see the three principles on the cycle that they bring about on the “Wheel of fortune” tarot card.

10-wheel-of-fortune-tarot-card
See the 3 alchemical symbols in the inner wheel?…they are also represented by the three figures on the outer wheel.The lion at the top (Fire),Anubis (Mercury) at the right..and Typhon (Salt) on the left.

Anubis is sometimes even called “Hermanubis”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermanubis

 

t53ydism
See the caduceus of Mercury?

You can google the rest of the symbols on the rosy cross for yourself,or even better,try to obtain “the book of Thoth” By Aleister Crowley and “Understanding Aleister Crowley’s book of Thoth” for yourself if you are grasping any of this.It is good to find the hidden meanings and treasures for yourself.

You can find out why all the letters are on the four barbs,and what they stand for…the INRI for instance…first find the outer exoteric meaning…and then the inner hidden esoteric meaning.

And if you got through all of that….thanks for reading!…please share this blog if it might be of interest to anyone.

Cheers!

At Sixes and Sevens

Hello fellow peoples of the planet!

To begin,adding to the theme of recent blogs,highlighting the link between Isis (the eternal virgin) and Saturn (Old Father Time/Grim Reaper). I would like to post this passage from the book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” where Manly Palmer Hall tells us the following.

Isis Saturn

The Eternal Virgin Isis represents “matter/nature” and Saturn is the force that gives structure to matter.He holds the cube of space together.(see below for more on this)

For example…in the human body,Saturn (remember Saturn in astrology/alchemy is a force and concept) rules the skeletal system.(please read the whole article below if you can as it will familiarize you with the different concepts and correspondences of Saturn beyond ruling the skeletal system,and in doing so will give you a wider understanding of all of its attributes)

http://www.witchipedia.com/planet:saturn

What that means is that,in our body,as in nature….Saturn provides the framework that the body and nature (Isis) both need to build on….(if we didn’t have the skeleton the body would be a pile of goo!)

(And you will also click why Satan (Saturn) is usually connected with skeletons…and the skull and crossbones)

All of the properties or characteristics that have been attributed to Satan throughout history are due to astrology and the planet Saturn.

For example Satan is often represented as a goat (Capricorn is the goat,ruled by Saturn),the colours black and red are due to the colours attributed to both Saturn (black) and Mars (red) (Saturn rules Capricorn,Mars exalts in Capricorn),skeletons are due to Saturn ruling the skeletal system.Saturn rules Capricorn which starts at the winter solstice (the midnight of the year) hence he rules the darkness.Winter is the time of death and Satan is connected to death and destruction.The number six is the number of both man and Satan.

the-devil-satan-lucifer-human-skull-red-flames-beast-evil-belt-buckle-belts-buckles-3.gif
ALSO OF INTEREST IS THE MOTTO OF CAPRICORN RULED BY SATURN…”I BUILD” or “I USE.”

It all comes from the mystery teachings of this Satanic/Saturnic force!

More links between Isis/the weeping virgin and Saturn in future blogs as we continue connecting the two.

Also before this blog gets underway…..I would like to show how the influences of the zodiac,astrology and alchemy surround all of us,but most of us don’t see it until we achieve a certain level of pattern recognition.

This is why Jesus says the following….

Luke 8:10

“He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.'”

Astrological motifs surround us,in every facet of our world.

For instance…the seven planets and their metals are the following…

451067961_6e0c80375a_zNow with the above in mind…let’s have a look at the Olympic Medal ceremony.

lillehammer_medals_800x375

And with the eyes of understanding of the seven classical planets…you will see two male planets…..and two female!

Showing the four elements of earth,air,fire and water.

Why four planets (four elements) out of three medals?

Well let’s see….

The winner gets gold.

Second gets silver.

And third gets bronze.

The Gold Medal represents the Sun.

The Silver medal represents the Moon.

The two benefics in astrology are Jupiter and Venus. (Mars and Saturn are the two malefics)

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/gl/benefics.html

Look again at the table above and you will see the metals of the two beneficial planets are the following…Jupiter’s metal is Tin…and Venus’s metal is copper.

When copper and tin are alloyed together….you get…..Bronze!

And of course you would only have the metals of beneficial planets given to those who do well in their sport!

They just happen to correspond with astrology and alchemy.

And it’s not by chance I would suggest,it’s because these symbols resonate deep within us…..the Gold medal represents the sun which in turn represents light and goodness and growth…the Sun is the King after all.

Once you get a hang of the zodiac,which planet rules which sign,what metals correspond and on and on……you will start to connect things you see.

here’s an example…..The Royal Bank of Scotland sign is this.

Most people will look at a sign or symbol and give it no thought at all.

rbs-logo-for-web_Standard

Can you see the four seasons of three months in this symbol?……can you see the cross of the zodiac….can you see the twelve?

Isn’t it  similar to this?

cross_zodiac_solstice
Remember each season contains three months….just as the Royal Bank of Scotland symbol does…it represents the zodiac or the four seasons and 12 months of the year.

Look around yourself and start connecting…it is everywhere.

Think of the four squares of Microsoft Windows with a cross in the middle of them(again the four seasons/elements/tetragrammaton)…or what about the logo of Apple.

Silhouette
The apple with the bite taken out of it hearkens back to the garden of Eden story (it also corresponds with Venus/Saturn (another link between Satan and the weeping virgin/Isis) and also the sign of Libra).It represents knowledge and wisdom,which it took to build an apple computer.

 

Now back to this blog.

 

In-the-Wave-cover00011walter-russell27_905

“Within the Wave lies the secret of all Creation”

Walter Russell

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Russell

http://walter-russell.com/

Below is the wave Walter Russell is referring to.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
All of the religions,myths,fairytales come from this wave….This is one of the things Walter Russell meant when he said the secret of creation lies within the wave.However for this blog “sixes and sevens”….please note there are six months or signs above and six months or zodiac signs below.

In the bible book of Genesis it tells us that God (actually Elohim) created the earth in six days….and on the seventh he rested.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genesis_creation_narrative

Now ponder on this…at the very left of the zodiacal sine wave is the sign of Aries,and Aries represents the dawn/the beginning/the spring equinox/the return of light from the six months or 12 hours of darkness of the year and day respectively.

Now think about the first words in the bible…..

Genesis 1:1

The Beginning

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Now if Aries is the “dawn” of the year and represents the return of light….Aries represents the first day of creation,and every day the dawn is literally a “Let there be light” moment!

And in the year the Passover and Easter represent….”Let there be light” or “Fiat Lux!”,as they bring light to the year in the form of the yearly dawning.

The Passover and Easter both represent the first part of creation or growth on the earth……do animals not create their offspring,do plants not start growing around this time?…..and all for the six months of the year…..the royal arch…the six days of creation!

RA 200And after those six months of the zodiac representing the six days of creation we come to the sign of Libra(again see the sine wave above as it starts to dip below the equator).

And God (God is light) or the Sun “rests” or stops its work on the seventh “day” or seventh sign of the zodiac…namely Libra as it heads down into perdition where all the growth comes to ruin during the dark days of winter…..only returning to bring life again in six months time.

JerichoJoshua

In the bible story of the fall of Jericho…again we have the six and seven just like the Genesis creation account..In this story we have the Israelites marching around the walls of the city for six days….on the seventh the priests were to blow their rams horns and the walls of Jericho would collapse.

Notice the themes of daybreak/dawn/spring.

Joshua 6:2-5 and 12-16

2/”Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets.”

12/”Joshua got up early the next morning and the priests took up the ark of the Lord. The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets went forward, marching before the ark of the Lord and blowing the trumpets. The armed men went ahead of them and the rear guard followed the ark of the Lord, while the trumpets kept sounding.14/So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!”

Yet again we refer to the sine wave above to realize that in the verses above,the bible is talking allegorically about coming out from the six months of darkness/winter/night.

If you’ve been following this blog from the beginning….the rams horns (Aries) should mean something to you,as should the name “Jericho” meaning “city of the moon.”

https://vicbethlehem.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/jericho-city-of-the-moon/

http://www.sheknows.com/baby-names/name/jericho

Out of the seven classical planets the moon is a feminine planet….it reflects the suns light,and continuing the female theme we usually see the moon at night…and night is the feminine/yin part of the 24 hour cycle….the dark half of the cycle of the day.

yin-yang
Notice that the moon(representing darkness/autumn/winter) is represented by the dark part of the yin/yang…namely yin.

Now it should click that the blowing of the rams horns allegorically represents the sun entering into the sign of “Aries the Ram” bringing an end to the six months of Jericho/Moon/winter/night/darkness and a returning of the light/Ram/lamb/Easter/Passover/dawn/Sun.

It’s another way of telling us about the Lamb of God that takes away the sins/winter/night/darkness of the world!

The Jewish seven branched Menorah corresponds with the seven planets,but it also represents the seven posts of the royal arch of spring and summer,although there are six houses of the zodiac in the royal arch…there are seven branches/posts or pillars also.

Hopefully this drawing will show what I mean.

7 pillars 001
The seven pillars are the seven pillars of light representing the sign of Aries through to the sign of Libra…….the seven pillars of light…represented in the Jewish Menorah by the seven candles.Sixes and sevens!

 

34969_7_branch_shalom_menorah_in_brown_and_orange_view_1
The seven pillars of light representing the royal arch of seven pillars.

 

RA 200
You can see the six houses of the zodiac…..now can you see the seven pillars? The keystone in the middle has some letters on it….”HTWSSTKS.” This stands for “Hiram The Widows Son Sent To King Solomon” It’s talking about the suns journey….”The Widow’s Son” is a representation of the sun at the winter solstice (Capricorn) where the new son is born as the old sun (his father) dies as the old year dies…and King Solomon represents here the summer solstice…..again it is the sun ping-ponging between the two solstices…..Tommy or Tammuz.

In Genesis 1:1 it says:-

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The word for God in this verse is actually Elohim and in mystical teachings the Elohim represent the 7 planets.

The seven planets correspond with the numbers 1-7 as they also do to other numbers….symbols have many meanings.

The Moon gives us Monday…..the moon represents the number one….moon is an anagram of mono/mon.

Mars (gives us tuesday/twos day) is the God of war and division,and a symbol of Mars is the sword and the bible tells us that the word of God is a double edged sword….number two.

hebrews-4-12
notice that two is connected with the sword of mars.

Mercury (Wednesday/Mercredi in french) or Hermes/Thoth is connected with the number three.

hermes-mercury-source

And Hermes is known as the “thrice greatest” “thrice” meaning “three.”

51ktuNbe3+L._SX298_BO1,204,203,200_

Jupiter or Jove is connected to the number four…Jove is Jehovah who is represented by the tetragrammaton…(four letters) and the symbol of Jupiter is like a stylized number four.

Venus as we have already seen in earlier blogs has a connection to the number five.

The planet Venus makes a five pointed star over an eight year period in it’s motions through the solar system.

birth-of-venusVenus also has a connection with the apple!

VenusThorvaldsen

And the apple has the five pointed star of Venus hidden inside.

apple-venus star.1

Saturn has a connection to the number six…for example the character of Satan (who is made up of the characteristics of the planet Saturn) is connected with the number 6…or 666.

The six pointed star is also connected with the planet Saturn….as is the hexagon.

And doesn’t Saturn have a massive hexagon on its north pole?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn’s_hexagon

9711e5e2d93303972ec53be5fb815f2b

Saturn/Satan can put a hex on you…and hex is the number six.

The Sun has a connection with the number seven as when the sun shines through rainclouds we get a seven coloured rainbow.

MOC_GK_TUSHAR_SEVEN_COLOURS_OF_THE_RAINBOW_Featured

According to the international standard ISO 8601, Monday is the first day of the week ending with Sunday as the seventh day of the week. Although this is the international standard, countries such as the United States still have their calendars refer to Sunday as the start of the seven-day week.

So in the bible the Sabbath is Saturday…Saturn’s day and is the seventh day.

However according to ISO 8601 above,Saturday would be the sixth day of the week.

Saturn is at sixes and sevens also,according to the cube of space in the Sefer Yetzirah.

Why?

The cube of space (see earlier blogs for more information) is obviously a six sided cube…..but hidden inside that cube,holding together the cube of space and time is Saturn……represented by the letter “Tau” in Astrology.

http://symboldictionary.net/?p=2047

Cube of Space2

This cube or box,is the box that gets opened at boxing day.

Santa in the Christmas ritual comes to punish wrongdoers and reward the good.

Santa arrives up till midnight,and sure enough the “midnight of the year” is the winter solstice right when Christmas is celebrated…..just as midnight is the darkest hour of the day…Christmas is the darkest time of the year.

father_time3
Notice Saturn/The Grim Reaper/Santa/Old Father Time with his long white beard,pointing to midnight.Capricorn is the midnight of the year and Saturn rules capricorn.(can you see all the correspondences yet?)

The Santa story is telling us the story of nature.Santa is Saturn or Old father Time,he has a long white beard.Saturn is the principle or concept that arrives at the end of every cycle…….every cycle has its end point before beginning it’s next cycle…i.e the cycles of the day,the year….and the “Great Year.”

When the bible talks about the “end of the world” the word used is “aeon” and it really means “age.”

According to the hidden,esoteric teachings we are at the end of the old age and about to enter the new age.

The old ways and institutions must be eradicated before the new age begins.

For example as Moses who was the messiah taking the people from the old age of Taurus (Golden Calf) destroyed all those who were still worshipping the old age.

And the new age was about to begin for them….the age of Aries…and sure enough after that old age had gone….the Israelites were connected with sheep and lambs and shepherds….blowing the ram’s horn (shofar).

Shofar-Western-Wall-Kotel-Passover-Pesach-600x399

Then moving backwards again through the zodiac (see “precession of the equinoxes”),the next age to arrive was the age of Pisces…(the two fish) and right on cue Jesus arrives to usher the new age in,taking his followers from the old age of Aries to the new age of Pisces.

Look at this ancient Christian grave marking,showing that (whether they understood it or not) the two fish of the age of Pisces was used as a symbol.

anchor-christian-symbol

And this archaeological discovery also.

2migiddo-church-7

However as we move around the big clock of the great year,we are coming to the end of the age of Pisces and moving into the age of Aquarius…..what are some things to look out for as the old age ends and new age begins?

First off,Jesus does talk about the age of Aquarius……at Luke 22:10.

“He replied, “As soon as you enter Jerusalem, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. At the house he enters”

The man carrying a pitcher of water is the zodiac symbol for the sign of Aquarius.

aquarius

Men didn’t carry water in biblical times……hence that is why Jesus met the woman at the well….women collected water.

EARTH,WIND and FIRE (oh yeah and water!)

So lets see some symbolism from the bible as it tells us about the new ages arriving.

Moses was the messiah between Taurus and Aries….Taurus is an “earth” sign and Aries is a “fire” sign…so we should expect there to have been some connection with earth and fire back then…and there was!

Moses,when conversing with Jehovah,spoke to a “burning” bush and there we have the fire reference….and when Korah challenged Moses authority he and his followers were swallowed up by the earth.

burning-bush

korah
“The earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses.” Book of Numbers 16:31

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korah#Destruction_of_Korah

In moving from the Age of Aries to the Age of Pisces we are now moving from a fire sign to a water sign,and from the sign of the lamb/sheep/ram to the sign of the fish.

So we should see those symbols surrounding Jesus.

Jesus (the LAMB of God) did say he was bringing a fire to the earth…however the element Jesus is most associated with out of the four elements (earth,air,fire and water) would be water.

Pisces is a water sign!

Pisces in body astrology is linked with the feet.(see earlier blogs)

Jesus is the Piscean Messiah!

He calmed the waves,he walked upon water,he told his followers to cast their nets into the water.

jesus-walking-on-water-benjamin-mcpherson

He preached from the water in a boat.

Luke 5:3

“He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.”

JesusPreach-boat

So what should we expect to see when the age moves from Pisces (water sign) to Aquarius (air sign)?…..there will be a connection to fish and fishes or fishing as the old age gives way….and we should also see a connection to flowing water/containers of water.

And sure enough the book of revelation backs this up as it says this about the new age.

Rev21a8

The pouring out of water is an Aquarian motif.

Aquarius is an air sign…..so there will be a connection with air also.

Another theme that occurs during the changing of the ages is the theme of freedom from slavery.

Remember Moses was told to go up to the ruler of the old age (Pharaoh) and say to him….”Let my people go.”

Exodus 9:1

“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go

The Messiah for the next aeon,Jesus,approached the Scribes and Pharisees and again talked about releasing them from their slavery.

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you lock people out of the kingdom of heaven. For you do not go in yourselves, and when others are going in, you stop them.”

maxresdefault

So the “Messiah” of the new age will speak up to the world rulers again telling them to release his followers.

In Moses time it was physical slavery in Egypt,in our modern time it is mental slavery.

And we ourselves are the only ones who can release ourselves from mental bondage.

Nobody else can do that for us,we need to awaken the Christ within us and he helps free us.When we do free ourselves….we come back to life…we get our minds back….we release ourselves from our tomb (box/cube).

Emancipate-yourself1431353530

This will happen to mankind at the darkest time on earth.This is what Christmas is telling us.At the darkest times,the light will again shine forth.

The tombs/boxes will be opened,as the illusions we have believed in crumble around us…..religion (religare means “to bind”),money (stocks and bonds are implements of slavery…are they not?).Whosoever can,will free themselves.

Jesus is the door to freedom.

Let me give an example of what I mean by that statement.

It was only when I allowed myself to question the watchtower society’s teachings,by accepting the force of light/truth/Jesus into my mind,that I was freed from the mental bondage (darkness/ignorance) that Jehovah’s witnesses are all under.

I managed to escape because I followed my own true conscience,no matter what or who tried to stop me.I did not succumb to peer pressure or conformity.

All religions claim to be the right religion,yet most people adhere to their religions,merely based on geographical location and family.

If you are born in Saudi Arabia,you most likely will follow a branch of Islam,in Italy you will likely be Roman Catholic.In India you will be Hindu or Buddhist..etc etc.

And yet under the surface of all religions lies sex,astrology and the zodiac.

To change your mind sounds so simple….yet it is very difficult to let go of old ways/habits and beliefs.

The Devil

That is why the devil tarot card above shows us the people in slavery aren’t tied up too tight….the chains around their heads (minds) can be taken off at any time….but to free yourself from control of the mind is an internal struggle and one you can only do for yourself ultimately.

And when the cube (shackled mind) opens,it becomes the cross (mental freedom).

rose-cross-cube
We move from the six sided cube into the cross (although the cross has six squares it looks like seven 4 down and 3 across)

This is why Jesus arrives at midnight like Santa and judges people as Santa does…he gives rewards to the good and punishment to the evildoers.

Matthew 25:6-10

“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ ‘No, ‘they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut“

The good ascend,they return to the father just like the prodigal son…and the others remain in the lake of fire (time),and into a new cube of space.(New Jerusalem)

The new Jerusalem comes down in the book of revelation in the shape of a new cube.

Revelation 21:16

“The 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 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.”

1new-jerusalem-old_city

The others who follow the lamb (light/truth) move back to source…to the ONE…..this is the meaning of the at-one-ment. (atonement).

The light means order and unity,darkness is division and confusion.

This is also why the Rosicrucians have this cross…….Lon Milo Duquette says the box/cube pops open like a kernel of popcorn to give us the image below.

Rose_Cross_Lamen.svg

Turning lead into Gold is another way of saying that we are moving from the six to the seven/cube to cross….why?

Lead is Saturn’s metal,Saturn is connected with the number six.

And when lead is turned into gold,Saturn is changed into the Sun…..Saturn is connected to 6 and the sun to 7…..changing 6 into 7.

We have moved from the darkness of lead into the lustre and light of gold.

Aleister Crowley is termed “The great beast 666” by society.

in-search-of-the-great-beast-666

And yet one of his most famous books is this.

123658
This book is about the correspondences between zodiac signs,qabalah,tarot.

Do you remember the story of beauty and the beast?

People were scared of that beast,and tried to kill him,and yet that beast was transformed into a prince.(All wasn’t as it seemed)

When our ignorance,superstition and fear is left behind us and we look into “forbidden” “beastly” occult literature then our minds are opened and light can enter.

It also happened to me when I started reading “apostate/beastly” literature exposing the Jehovah’s Witness religion as being totally wrong,that my mind was freed from it’s shackles.

I was “enlightened” by that so called apostate literature,it brought me out of my darkness and ignorance.

Lead turned into gold…..6 turned into 7!

In the next blog we will break down what all the symbolism on the rosy  cross is telling us.

Thanks for reading!

In the Country of the Blind….

The one eyed man is king!

In this blog we will find out about Dhritarashtra (the blind king in the Bhagavad Gita) and what he symbolizes.

I also speak about my former blindness as a Jehovah’s witness and yet thinking my eyes were wide open at the time.

And what it means to have a simple or single eye.

 

King James Bible
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 6:22

Hello fellow peoples of the planet!

I thank you for visiting my wee blog.

Before this blog gets going however………

At the end of the previous blog I said that “Old Man Thames” was “Old man Tammuz” (Thomas) or “Old Father Time” who is in fact Saturn.

Adding further on to that,there is also a part of the Thames river that is called the River “Isis.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis

And yet again there you have another coincidence,why?

Because Old Father Time (Saturn/Tammuz/Thames) and Isis/Venus/Mary (the eternal virgin) are connected and linked.

img_8722

img_5389
Old Father Time with his scythe,he is the grim reaper (hence his link as being the god of agriculture) and the virgin who is also linked to reaping and the harvest as the young virgins go out to bring in the harvest in the sign of Virgo in August/September.

Why is Isis or the virgin weeping?…more in a later blog.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=father+time+weeping+virgin&biw=1536&bih=732&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi5_O61h8_KAhWFWRQKHSqbDGYQ_AUIBigA&dpr=1.25

It is not a coincidence that the Thames has a stretch of water called the Isis because they are linked.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis#History

https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090227120732AA8Zwxe

Old Father Time is Saturn or Satan,linked with the elements earth and water…the feminine elements that correspond to the female and winter/night/darkness/material/dense/cold part of nature.

Earth and Water can also be represented by the land(earth) and the sea(water) and symbolized by the downward facing triangles.

2367d9637c5577a351e112d5d2825914

This is what is being represented by the Thames and Isis rivers and father time and the weeping virgin……earth and water…or matter…and Saturn is the lord of matter….or as the bible says it….the ruler of this world.

In the book of Revelation chapter 10:2 we have another symbol of the two lower elements.

“He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.”

Isis is also Mare and Mare/Mary is the sea as in Weston-super-Mare.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston-super-Mare

And Mary or Isis (the virgin) is connected to Saturn/Satan/Old Father Time through law.

Mari-time law…….Mari=Mary/sea/water and Time=Saturn.

In the sign of Libra the two meet also…Venus rules Libra and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

Libra is connected with law….the symbol of courts are the scales of justice and the scales of Libra,weights and measures and balance,then you have Venus on the roof holding the scales,Saturn the tester is represented by the judge…old father time,the devils advocate, saturnine procedures in court,while wearing the long white wig just as Saturn has his long white hair.

In the Garden of Eden,Satan and the virgin are together,Saturn and Virgo

And if you look back a couple of blogs I gave a list of correspondences in the terms and words connecting money and water.

It is Mari-Time law and the law of the sea.

Saturn rules Capricorn symbolized by the sea-goat……again the two elements earth and water.

Goat=earth/Saturn/Chronos and Fish=sea/water/Isis.

il_570xN.368473591_tvd0
AGAIN EARTH AND WATER ARE REPRESENTED IN THE SEA-GOAT OF CAPRICORN. ALSO THE VIRGIN AND SATURN BECAUSE THE SEA GOAT IS BOTH MARY/MARE/SEA AND THE GOAT IS SATURN/SATAN.

http://www.proto-english.org/l10.html

In horror films the two are linked also,think of Satanic/Saturnic films there is usually always a virgin getting sacrificed in them.

We are in the lower part of our zodiacal journey or the two lower elements earth and water.

We are in the underworld,the world of darkness and illusion

We are the earthy man,we are John the baptist like and we need to discover the Christ within us that will lift us up into the “heavenly” air and fire elements,and when we receive that baptism we raise ourselves from the water just as Jesus did at his baptism.

John baptized with water and he was a man of earth,he lived in the wilderness and ate locusts….see the two elements earth and water.

Jesus baptizes with spirit (air) and fire.

John the Baptist says this at 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.”

http://latindictionary.wikidot.com/noun:spiritus

Jesus moved from the “Son of Man” to become “Son of God.”

He was moving to higher awareness/consciousness/the fountain from inside was flowing.

In the psalms it talks about the same things.

Psalm 40:2

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”

We are literally in the mud and mire of our bodies. (notice the word Mary/Miriam/Myra in the word mire) the feminine part of the zodiac cycle,also represented by matrix/mud/mudder (mother)/Ma’at/mater/matter.

We are immersed in dense matter!

Yet the bible says we escape (as do all religious texts)…again in amazing allegory!

First though I would like to talk a wee bit about the awakening experience I had as a JW and how it led me to a bigger awakening.

Below is an example of a Jehovah’s Witness awakening.

http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/5657027011411968/stepping-out-shadows

And a short video.

Once a JW begins to realize that the organization they belong to isn’t…what…they…once…thought it was……the scales literally fall from their eyes…..a wholly frightening/and yet exhilarating experience for those that go through it.

I had that earthquake.

Through the trauma it brought,it was also accompanied by a realization (real-eyes-ation),and ultimately a wisdom gaining experience…a new birth of sorts.

The first question I was asked by an elder and friend when I started to air my doubts about the organization was…“Where else can we go?”

Jehovah’s witnesses firmly believe and insist that their organization is the only true one…there is nothing outside of it except darkness,wickedness and chaos,and ultimately destruction.

Lets see an example of the kind of things said through their various magazines and books.

“Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah’s universal organization.” (w06 5/15 p.22 par. 8 Are You Prepared for Survival?)

They are taught that if you are outside that “ark”…..there is no hope for you at all unless you are part of the Jehovah’s Witness organization.

Any Jehovah’s witness who happens to read this blog will have to agree that the Governing Body are God’s only true spokesperson on earth and there are no others.

Who really is the faithful and discreet slave?

However at the Australian Royal Commission (ARC) last year (which was investigating how institutions dealt with child abuse allegations),one of the Governing Body members (Geoffrey Jackson) said this.

He said it would be “presumptuous” to say they they are the only spokesperson God is using.

I believe Jehovah’s Witnesses have it wrong when they ask “where else can we go?”

Let’s have a look and see why.

They take that question from the scripture at John 6:68. (NIV)

“Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”

They reason that if they aren’t the true religion,none of the others come near to them because they alone use the name Jehovah and preach door to door,do not use the cross or believe in the trinity….So they will ask you where else can we go,thinking there is no other place to go outside their organization.

However did you notice the scripture doesn’t say where else can we go…..but to whom shall we go!

To which the answer would be “Christ.”

And this is where we encounter one of the bibles great secrets.

Colossians 1:27

“For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

The Christ is inside you…..you have an inauthentic self and an authentic self.

There is somewhere else to go,and it is a place where you will never be manipulated or duped by charlatans such as the Watchtower Society ever again.

There is no true religion outside of you,not one.

However you have to keep knocking,exerting yourself to find the narrow path by awakening your higher self within. (Christ).

The single eye,the chief cornerstone,enlightenment…..

You become both a King and a Priest in yourself.The law won’t come from outside you as written on stone tablets,the laws will be written on your heart.

Jeremiah 31:33

Just as the sun rises at Easter and brings the barren earth to life,the Christ is an inner sun,that needs rise within you,to move you from the two lower elements,earth and water to the two higher or male elements,namely air and fire,the bible talks about it saying being caught up in the air.And the world being destroyed by fire

http://biblehub.com/1_thessalonians/4-17.htm

And when you do find that Christ within you as stated in a previous blog and repeated here,it will cause this to occur inside of you.

John 4:14

14 “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

When a Jehovah’s Witness “awakens” and the word “awaken” is allowing your “single eye” to open…to see the light!….to see things as they actually are and not as you once believed,and it is one hell of a paradigm shift.

As said before it is harrowing and yet ultimately healing,it is also like an ascension or resurrection because you can see things from a higher perspective than you did previously,and you come to life and higher awareness…a new birth.

The keys of the zodiac,astrology,kaballah,sex and nature will open all the doors to the scriptures,myths,fairy tales,nursery rhymes and festivals.The more you study,the more you will see the links between them all,everywhere.

Even in films we find themes relating to finding this true (higher) self/Christ in you,and abandoning the lower self.

Freud called the lower self the “Id” and the entity known as the Id (“Id” entity or rather “identity”) deals with our basic instinctual drives,including the libido.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego_and_super-ego#Id

Some call this “base consciousness” and it is represented by the black and white floor of a masonic lodge….it is “black and white thinking” where one cannot see the grey areas which everything has,it is having polarized,superstitious and wave-like emotional views.

photo11
The floor of a masonic lodge represents most of mankind who are polarized,and content to go along to get along by following the crowd.They are moved like pawns on the chess board of life.

However the “Blazing Star” of the masonic lodge (Sirius) gives hope of light shining in the darkness,and those who follow it will gain enlightenment and find the Christ within,just as the “wise men”,”magi” or astrologers found the Christ by following Sirius.

masonic trip to sirius
NOTE THE STAIRS ILLUSTRATING HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS/ASCENSION/JACOBS LADDER/ILLUMINATION/IN REVELATIONS IT IS REPRESENTED BY THE MOUNTAIN.

Let’s see an example of this higher journey from the film “The Truman Show.”

Even the name of the film gives us a clue……the “True Man” show.

In the film we find the character “Truman Burbank” living in a totally fake world,a world of illusion.He is the star of a reality show where people watch his every move 24/7 and he is not aware of it.He is surrounded by actors who all play the role of friends,family and work colleagues etc etc.

However the “True Man” is stirring inside of him as he starts to question things and strangely enough one of the things that starts him questioning is a light falling from the ceiling of the large dome studio he is in.

What does the light say on it?

The next thing that follows is that all his “friends” and “colleagues” try to prevent him from following his journey to enlightenment,and he even starts to question his own sanity.

When I was a JW all of my friends and family were telling me I was going insane for even questioning that the religion might not be the truth.

I even started questioning myself…….was I seeing things all wrong?

Why couldn’t anyone else see what I was seeing?

However by pursuing what I thought was right through to the end gave me such an awakening,such a paradigm shift even though it felt like a crucifixion at the time……I really have a freedom of mind I would never trade for anything,even though I know my reputation,name and character is pretty much shredded among my former friends.

It cannot ever enter their minds that the religion could be wrong….never ever….the fault always lies with the one who leaves.

At the end of the “Truman Show” we see how he has ascended,had his crucifixion and gained his freedom.

TrumanFree
Meet the ascended (again symbolized by stairs),crucified “TRUE MAN.” Which is the subject of all religious texts,and religious figures,whether Buddha(Buddha means “awakened,enlightened one”),Krishna,Christ.

We see the theme in other films like “The Matrix” where Neo Anderson (“Neo” means “New”,”Ander” means “Man” and “Son”…put it together and you get “New Son of Man”,and again like Truman,Neo finds out the world he is in isn’t real…it is an illusion and he has many trials to get through to gain his freedom from it.

It is the story of Christ….it is the story of Us,and the struggle to find the Christ within us,and the journey that begins with it.

Joseph Campbell recognized it and wrote about it,calling it the hero’s journey or monomyth. which just happens to have 12 stages,just like the zodiac which is a symbol of the journey.

http://www.movieoutline.com/articles/the-hero-journey-mythic-structure-of-joseph-campbell-monomyth.html

It is also seen in the “Wizard of Oz” and “Star Wars”…”Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings.”

We see it in the story of Moses,Joseph,Daniel and Jesus among many others in the bible,because it is again naturally in our collective psyche,and all cultures talk about it in their own ways.

Let’s have a look at another version of this ubiquitous story,this time in the Bhagavad Gita,and you may notice some similarities to stories and characters that are encountered in the Bible.

“Bhagavad Gita” means “Song of the Lord” and it a part of the Mahabharata,an epic Indian poem.

The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of the war between two groups called the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

mahabharat-kurukshetra-war-kauravas-pandavas
The Kurukshetra war between the Pandavas and Kauravas…….(light and darkness…left and right hemispheres of the brain)

The Pandavas are the five sons of Pandu and Kunti,Pandu is the phallus/sun and Kunti is the vagina (cunt).

The male and female.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandu

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunti

Pandu means yellow….yellow like the sun.

Kunti means “lover of the sun god” (or penis) for the penis is the sun on a lower plane,as the penis brings life to the earth as does the sun….both are connected with “the generation game.”

The five sons of Pandu are the 5 aspects of divine personality that reach out from fourfold matter….as illustrated below.

leonardoThe leader of the Pandavas and the main protagonist of the Bhagavad Gita is Arjuna,and Arjuna represents the divine personality,that which seeks union with God/higher mind.

In fact all the Pandavas are aspects of the dormant “higher”or “good” parts of our personality,or “right brain” thinking,the right brain being the feminine receptive mode of thought where inspiration is derived from,the part of the brain that looks  and yearns for the moments when light dawns on it. (the lover of the sun god)

However their father dies (no higher thought activity) and they are raised by their uncle…Dhritarashtra who is a good king….yet he is blind from birth.

Dhritarashtra

He represents the highest aspect of the lower/carnal part of our nature…well intentioned,yet blind,just as those Jehovah’s witnesses cannot see the manipulation they are under,but yet they are well meaning people.

Jesus pictured it this way

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

–Matthew 15:14

The highest level of base consciousness cannot exceed the lowest level of higher thought.See the scripture below.

Matthew 11:11

“Truly I tell you, among those born of women (earth/water) there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven(air/fire/higher elements) is greater than he.

“Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither, like blind led by the blind.”— Katha Upanishad

 This is the allegory of Jesus healing the blind,people coming to a higher consciousness and being able to see clearly,awakening the third eye symbolized by dots or snakes on religious peoples foreheads.
a_di_da_phat_buddha_guanyin_1132_by_kwanyinbuddha-d7anx5w
Or we see it symbolized by oil being poured on the forehead.
samuel-anointing-david14x17

People who are seeking outside for the kingdom rather than inward,are chasing illusions….for which religion is true?

In Christianity alone there are more than 30,000 differing versions.

King James Bible

Luke 17:21
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The Blind King (Dhritarashtra) also has 100 sons and these represent all the troubling negative thoughts we experience daily…anger…deceit…disgust…envy…greed…and the list goes on.

And yet they are the favourites of the blind king,they are the offspring of carnal thoughts……they are his sons after all.

So basically you have a story about light versus darkness,the black and white floor of the masonic lodge pictured above.

The Pandavas are the light and the sons of the blind king represent darkness.

Then it tells us that the blind king gives land to the Pandavas,meaning that the blind king is showing the higher self all the riches and desires that can be attained by the lower carnal mind…..riches,cars,big house,fame etc.

Duryodhana is the leader of the “bad guys” and also the eldest of the Kauravas,his name means “unconquerable warrior.”

Duryodhana is the deceiver inside us who keeps us wanting more and yet what we get is never enough,he keeps the desire insatiable/unconquerable.

Next Duryodhana gets Yudhishtira (another of the five Pandavas….the steady,balanced spiritual mind) into a dice game and Yudhishtira loses the gamble and goes into exile for 13 years…..in other words he gambled his birthright to desire and lost and found himself in bondage,until after 13 years something stirs and he wants his birthright back,and again challenges the blind king.

Can you see many bible stories in the above also…..Esau selling his birthright for a bowl of stew,Jesus being taken up to a high mountain and shown all the kingdoms of the world and tempted by the deceiver.

It is all about birthrights and claiming what is yours if only you can grasp it,however you have a fight on your hands as all the legends,myths,religious stories,and films tell us.

The Pandavas and the Kauravas eventually meet for battle at Kurukshetra and at the end of 18 days only 12 major warriors are left including the five Pandavas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurukshetra_War#Aftermath

The battle of Kurukshetra is also the battle of Armageddon where again the conquerors stand on the mountain (ascension) alongside the lamb of god.

Or defeating Voldemort,Sauron,Goliath,Pharaoh in the story of Moses…..etc etc.

It is the battle each one of has to take to overcome the beast inside of all of us and conquer in the name of truth and light.

Saint-George-Slaying-the-Dragon-1551-Giorgio-Vasari-660x350-1429765970

What is fascinating about it all is that so many cultures are talking about the same thing in a myriad of ways.

Yet at the end of the day…it is the same story being told….the greatest story ever told…the story of us!

There is no religion higher than truth!

The “Tom” Riddle.

It’s About Time……….to talk about our old friend Saturn again!

20019204c9eccd00aebfb086cd3f4b8d
Notice the long beard. Whether Saturn,Chronos or Santa…they all have the long white beard. Note also the hourglass and its two sections….just like the northern and southern hemispheres of the earth…or the two parts of the yin/yang.

Saturn and time are linked……..yes it’s……ahem….”time” to talk about the “Old One”….”The Ancient of Days”,”Old father time,””Chronos.”

He’s the one with the long white beard……..Who gives us our new “Messiah” or “Son of Man.” just as Santa gives gifts at Christmas. (Saturnalia)

The new sun for the new year starts at Christmas….as the old sun dies at the winter solstice.

Daniel 7:13,14

“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days (Saturn) and was led into his presence.

He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.”

But before we do talk about Saturn let’s look again at the bible talking about the sheep and goats.

Matthew 25:31-46

The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they (GOATS) will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous (SHEEP) to eternal life.”

Look again at my woeful attempt at drawing below to see that the bible is talking about the zodiac.

001

Now notice that the bottom left corner of the zodiac is winter/3 months of darkness.

And winter is ruled by Saturn/Satan…the horned one…the goat…Capricornus!

In the book of Daniel chapter eight it tells us about a ram fighting a goat also.

This is allegory of the fight between light and darkness.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_8

However let us concentrate on the old goat this time.

In some places he was known as CERNUNNOS….or HERNE/CERN.

Gundestrup_Cernunnos
NOTICE THE HORNS.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cernunnos#Possible_reflexes_in_Insular_Celtic

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horned_God#Names_of_the_Horned_God

http://www.kidzsearch.com/wiki/Cernunnos

In Egypt he was known as SET OR SETH.

6cf443986db769a8c1d14a6827932c08
AGAIN NOTICE THE EARS MAKE STYLIZED HORNS. He is the God of chaos/disruption just as the biblical  Satan is. Set or Seth is the Egyptian Satan…..that is why the sun goes into darkness at sunSET,also connected with time…..you do have to “set” your clock or watch.

 

Set is a horned god…..

http://www.wepwawet.org/wiki/index.php?title=Set

Satan also has horns……..because they are all depicting the same thing….namely attributes of winter ruled by Capricorn the Goat…the horned/earthy/material/solid (liquid water turns to solid ice in winter)/dark/chaotic/cold/deathly/dissolving/destructive part of the natural cycle of things.

Satan/Saturn is the ruler of this material world,the world of matter and density and restriction/binding.

face_of_the_devil_by_anarkyman-d4pw97b
THE DEVIL IS DEPICTED WITH HORNS

 

Pan and Shiva also are horned Gods.

pan
PAN HAS HORNS

 

800px-Shiva_Pashupati
SHIVA HAS HORNS

Isn’t it coincidental that we are looking out of this world into the universe to find life using…SETI?…..SET.

And in to the smallest parts looking for the God Particle….using CERN?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson

CERN has a statue of Shiva outside…..and Shiva is the God of destruction.

b09c1d66544493d0ea2231e40ed48e70

Its not evil…it’s because Saturn/Shiva/Satan is also the force that binds matter together and they are trying to unveil it…….to reveal what nature/Isis is hiding/veiling.

https://www.quora.com/Why-is-there-a-Nataraj-statue-at-CERN

Why did I say above that Saturn is our friend?…isn’t Saturn the bad guy?

If you look through that article above we can see the following statement about the dance of Shiva.

“Secondly, the purpose of his (Shiva) dance is to release the souls of all men from the snare of illusion.”

We live in a world of illusion/maya.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_%28illusion%29

An example of the illusion we live under….billions of people think their religion that they were born into is true and will fight AND die for it….yet they are all illusions…there is no true religion out there……we need to look inside….not outside……however at the core of all religions are natural symbols of nature and the zodiac,over which has been placed extravagant rituals and ceremonies which are merely the veil which hides the truth which the vast billions of adherents cannot see behind.

They worship at the outer courts of the temple.

At the lower parts of secret societies they only glimpse the same thing,namely the outer court or “portico” of the temple……Albert Pike said this about the lower order Freemasons.

fbz_6a6caa5e1b4f6d2509954f576dd465ab
Notice he says the initiate is misled by false interpretations…………yes!…but note this….he is not misled by others…..they are his own false interpretations that lead him awry.If the people who follow blind leaders are content with their course….when they fall into the pit they have no one to blame but themselves.

Satan….or the corrosive/destructive/chaotic/demonic part of man himself will be the tool to bring all illusions to an end.

In the book of revelation it is a destructive Jesus….(Satan/Saturn) that brings the illusion to an end,it is Saturn that puts his sickle in and reaps. (Saturn is the God with the sickle.)

Shiva ends the illusion and dances to release the souls of men through the narrow gate.

The Narrow Gate
23And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25“Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’

The ancients said we come into this realm through the moon and exit through Saturn….Saturn is the gatekeeper who holds the keys to escaping this material realm.

We come in through the womb,and out through the tomb.

http://www.mermaid-uk.net/Esotericsaturn.htm

Saturn is the hidden one…Saturn or “Old Father Time” is the God who has a scythe or sickle…….and Saturn is connected with the harvest…..see the eternal virgin blog for more.

cdc2193d2ce44ef5067c0e6097e423ee
Saturn has a sickle or scythe
father_time3
Old father time has a sickle…..and notice what time he is pointing to…….MIDNIGHT.(Capricorn starts at the winter solstice…the midnight of the year…it is the darkest point of the year) The earth needs to go through the darkest time to bring about the new age….it will be a struggle…..just as it is a struggle for a newborn turtle to race down the beach through waiting predators to get to safety,just as Jesus was born in the midst of his enemies…and Herod/Herrut was involved in the slaughtering of the innocents,Jesus had to flee to Egypt for safety……the woman in Revelation has to flee to the wilderness to save her child (Revelation 12:13,14)  13/And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14/But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.”

Saturn can also be known as Satan,Set,Sut,Seth,Suty…(Sooty)…and he is also Santa!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Set_%28deity%29

Where do you find soot,is it not in chimneys?

(And does Santa not come down the chimney?)

Saturn is linked with soot and carbon.

We will see a lot of the customs and rituals surrounding Christmas are connected to Saturn.

Christmas is telling us about the end of a cycle….the old year ended at the winter solstice (December 22nd) and 3 days later (Jesus/Sun 3 days in his tomb) (December 25th) the new year is born as the sun starts its climb from the darkest days up to its throne at the tropic of cancer (June 21st).

Lets look at another link between Saturn and Carbon.

600px-PIA18274-Saturn-NorthPolarHexagon-Cassini-20140402
Note yet again Saturn has a hexagon at its north pole……(Santa comes from the north pole…does he not?)

One of the forms of carbon is graphite……and is it a coincidence that it has a hexagonal structure?

In the bible the 666 is a “man’s number”,man is the highest of carbon lifeforms.

carb2
Saturn is connected with 6’s…as is Satan (666). In alchemy Saturn’s metal is lead,and isn’t graphite in your pencil called “lead.” (Saturn puts the lead in your pencil!….he he)

 

Saturn rules the dark part of year…the 6 months of darkness starting from September 22nd till March 21st.

And Saturn IS connected with time and space….he is the “Time Lord” remember!

Santa has a long beard because he is Father time/Satan/Saturn.

He is old father time….he is Chronos who is connected with chronology,time,clocks etc.

If the creator part of “God” is the Alpha….Saturn is the Omega…the destroying part of “God”….(Omega means the mega or big “O”….”O”mega as opposed to Omicron…which is the micro “O”….”O”micron.

Remember it’s all about ones and zeros!

Women have circles (zeros)….and men have straight lines (ones/erect penis),which when inserted into the woman’s circle (vagina)…..can bring about new life.

6602665-red-and-blue-symbols-of-mars-and-venus-on-white-background-with-light-shadows

The creator,life giving part of this force is the Alpha….and the destructive part of the same force is the omega.

There are connections between time and omega…Chronos/Saturn/Satan is the omega.

spirit-and-history_hall-of-fame_watches_moonwatch_showroom

 

Lets talk again about the symbols and terms that describe Saturn.

The colour that is connected with Saturn is…..Black!

The metal that is connected to Saturn is…..Lead!…as was stated above

revelation-part-one-b-56-638
The “lead” that is turned into gold in the case of carbon would be graphite/coal being turned into diamond…….man into superman…….and isn’t just another coincidence that superman has a diamond on his chest?….probably….he he….but note this….diamond is only formed through great pressure.

Lead is also a heavy metal is it not?

And isn’t “heavy metal” music connected with the colour black and Satan/Saturn?

Yes…..type heavy metal music into images and you get this…..

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22heavy+metal%22+music&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwimk7n0yoPKAhVLPRQKHdwVCYgQ_AUICCgC&biw=1536&bih=732

All “Satanic” imagery…..due to the influence of Saturn/Satan/lead/black/chaos

Just as the moon affects tides on this earth….Saturn affects our psyche.

Saturn is a “force” or “concept” that is connected to law,funerals and death,heavy metal music/solemnity and revelry/end of a cycle/harvesting/killing/eats his own children….yet he also gives gifts to his good children…i.e Saint Nicholas Christmas.

But Saturn in the form of Krampus….becomes “Bad Santa” and punishes the wrongdoing children.

In fact lets look at an image of Krampus…….it would be just coincidence if he had horns and stuff connected with Saturn/Pan/Satan/Set…would it not?

2C1F99CE00000578-3228338-image-m-82_1441833286363

Just as Aleister Crowley said….all symbols have both a “good” and “bad” side….Saturn both punishes those who don’t learn lessons…….and rewards those who do learn their lesson.

Jesus comes at midnight also….like a thief…gives good gifts to the righteous……and punishes the wrongdoers,because he is also Satan…..its just in our world of Tommy/duality that we see things as good and evil…….when it is all illusion and perception while at the same time being so real to us.

 

001
Crowley says every symbol or figure has a dual nature

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus#Krampusnacht

If you look at the above link…….is it another coincidence (lots aren’t there!) that Krampus brings a lump of coal (carbon/Saturn) for the bad kids?

KrampusScan
notice what seems to be an omega symbol on the bottle?

Remember in a previous blog we spoke about the Sefer Yetzirah and the cube of space.

Saturn signified by the  Hebrew letter “Tau”….(see tau-saturn link in previous blogs) holds together time and space.

He holds together the 6 sided cube…(number 6 again)…and yet he is the hidden seventh inside the cube…….I will talk more in a later blog about being at sixes and sevens and the connection to turning lead into gold.However if you have been following the blogs and grasping the concepts within…..you will already be making connections.

Cube of Space2
RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CUBE OF SPACE IS A SYMBOL OF SATURN…WHY?….BECAUSE SATURN HOLDS THIS THREE DIMENSIONAL WORLD TOGETHER.
SaturnSymbolMeaning
SATURN’S SYMBOL. You could try finding out for yourself why Saturn has such a symbol,and what it represents.

Everything in this realm of duality has it’s season….a beginning and an end….a sowing and a harvesting.

Right now we are living at mankind’s winter solstice as we approach the end of the age of Pisces before transforming into the new age of Aquarius!

The changing from the old sun/age/system who dies at the winter solstice and the new sun/age/system which will be born from the darkness and chaos.

“The fruit I bring forth is the Sun” said Isis.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=sMsMAwAAQBAJ&pg=PA372&lpg=PA372&dq=%22The+fruit+which+I+have+brought+forth+is+the+Sun%22&source=bl&ots=L3qvdnSfGx&sig=jhpkOZF00sH4oRjHlE85S4phhBE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwicz6rl1JXKAhUBlxQKHbpkAiwQ6AEILjAE#v=onepage&q=%22The%20fruit%20which%20I%20have%20brought%20forth%20is%20the%20Sun%22&f=false

………and isn’t Isis in the news an awful lot lately.

Isis is the female companion of Saturn (see the eternal virgin blog)…colour black…connected with death and chaos….the female is deadlier than the male!

The motto of freemasonry is “Ordo Ab Chao” “Order out of chaos

Now “Order out of chaos” is stating the same thing as Isis when she proclaims “The fruit I bring forth is the sun!”

Or as an earlier blog says “Darkness/chaos gives birth to the light/order”

Saturn/Satan is also connected with time as said above.

Lets work out the “TomRiddle” now.

If you read or watched the Harry Potter series you will know that Tom Riddle becomes Lord Voldemort……the “baddie” in the series of books and films.

He plays the Satanic/Saturn Character whereas Harry Potter assumes the Christ/Sun figure.

The name “Tom” or “Thomas” means “twin” and as we will see it is connected with Saturn…and time!

http://www.behindthename.com/name/thomas

Why “twin?”

Yet again it goes back to the sine wave from earlier blogs….the hourglass in the first picture at the top,and the yin/yang….in fact everything is contained in the sine wave below.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave

As the sun moves from spring/summer (expansion) to autumn/winter (contraction) it forms a pulse….a beat…….a rhythm.

An in….and an out!

A tick…and a tock!

Well these twins/pulses/beats are Thomas/Tammuz (Tammuz is Thomas)…Let’s see why.

Let’s start off with Tammuz the month and its celebration

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tammuz_%28Babylonian_calendar%29#History

Notice in the above link that Tammuz is connected with the SUMMER solstice……so we have a Thomas at one of the solstices……..the tropic of cancer at midsummer….the longest day,the highest part of the suns journey in the year.

Now what are the chances that “Saint Thomas Day” is at the WINTER solstice…and yet there it is.

http://www.enidporterproject.org.uk/content/cambridgeshire-traditions/annual-events/st-thomass-say-december-21st/st-thomass-day-december-21st

https://www.catholicculture.org/culture/liturgicalyear/activities/view.cfm?id=972

Can you see what they are signifying?

The two tropics….Cancer and Capricorn….and the sun switching back and forth between the two like a beat.

The heartbeat of the year….the tick tock of “Time/Timmy”

Whether they are Tim/Tom/Tam/Tem/Tum/Dum…they all signify the pulse or beat…in and out.(The twins!)

That is why we have “Tom-Toms”….they give us the beat….Dum Dum!

(“Dumuzi” is another name for Tammuz)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tammuz_%28deity%29

We also have TAMbourines….that give us the beat

And TIMpani…..

Also what about TEMpo?

They give us the beat of music …and the two Tams/Toms give us the beat or pulse of the year….the summer solstice and the winter solstice…tick and tock.

They are the Tommyknockers….he he.

They are forever switching back and forth just like the sand in the sand timer in the first picture of this blog…tick tock….or in Thomas case in the bible….”doubting”…..for he was in two minds.

As for Timothy in the bible….did he not receive two letters from the Apostle Paul?

Along with the two solstices being connected to Thomas…they are also connected with John.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._John’s_Day,_Masonic_feast

And they are also connected to sex with the back and forth beat….rock and roll!

If your eyes move from the winter solstice to the summer solstice and back….your head moves up and down…as if you are nodding or saying yes…and makes a number one shape…..(the obelisk/erect penis makes a one shape…and moves up and down) and is it yet another coincidence that your penis can also be called your “JOHN THOMAS”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Thomas_sign

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=John+Thomas

(If you move your eyes between the two equinoxes (horizontally) you are shaking your head or saying no (feminine/negative)…the path of the solstices form the male and equinoxes the female.)

Saturn/Satan is connected with hell and Tommy (time).

Because it is Old Father Time that gives us the relentless beat of the twins of time.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hell_and_tommy

Saturn is Satan….the time lord and ruler of space……..Doctor Who is Saturn/Satan…the time lord……what does Tardis mean again,isn’t it connected with time…..and space…and isn’t the Tardis a box?

Saturn is connected with 6’s…..as is man who is the highest form of carbon species,and carbon just happens to have 6 protons,6 electrons and 6 neutrons.

CarbonAtom
666 is MANS number!

Saturn is also connected with 60…or three score…….each hour contains 60 minutes…each minute contains 60 seconds.

60-minutes-logo-575x276

Remember I had an earlier blog called the day the year and the great year….well the day corresponds to the six,the year to the sixty….and the great year to the 600….which gives six hundred three score and six…..666…..the number of the beast which is a mans number….and again…we have 666.

Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun and one of its moons is…just another coincidence….Pan!…..another connection to Satan/earthiness/materiality.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_%28moon%29

Whether Satan/Set/Saturn/Pan…….we are talking about the same force….or concept and its different aspects….and look at the groups below who recognize Satan/Saturn/Set.

Church of Satan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Satan

Temple of Set

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Set

Fraternitus Saturni

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraternitas_Saturni

Remember Saturn is also connected with death…..and that is why when you’re gone….you will be SIX feet under….in a BOX!

Saturn will knock you for six!

Did you notice in the article above…they just cannot work out who Old Father Thames is?

Do you think you may have solved that “Thames/Tammuz/Tom Riddle?”

The “Old Man River”….that just keeps rolling along (the river of time.)

The Man Who Would Be King.

the-man-who-would-be-king-crown

This blog will be talking about an ancient,and widespread ritual which was observed in many lands throughout history and whose theme still pervades literature and cinema up to this day,and may be behind the story of the killing of Jesus, “King of the Jews.”

However,before the blog gets underway,I said in an earlier blog that there was a relationship between the “number 26” and “Jehovah” in occult literature and teachings.

In what way?….well in a few ways,so let’s have a look at some.

We’ll start off by using the “Hebrew letters” and “Gematria”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria

(Gematria is linked with the word “Geometry”)

Then we’ll be using the tree of life in Kabbalah.

After that using the Zodiac wheel itself.

Then “English” Gematria.

And lastly from the cube of space in the Sefer Yetzirah.

Let’s start with the Hebrew letters that make up the Tetragrammaton!

Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh…..The Four Letters…..The name of “God.”

Notice below that each of the Hebrew letters has a numerical value.

the_hebrew_letters_and_their_numeric_values

You will notice that the letter “Yod” is the tenth letter with a value of 10

Then the letter “Heh” has the value of 5

The letter “Vav” has a value of 6

And the final “Heh” has a value of 5

10+5+6+5=26!

Next let’s look at the “tree of life” in Kabbalah.

Tree_of_Life_Diagram_with_namesNow notice there are three pillars in the tree of life above,the right pillar (male) called the pillar of mercy.

The left pillar (female) called the pillar of severity.

And the middle pillar,called the pillar of balance or equilibrium.

(see more about the middle pillar in previous blogs)

Each of the pillars represents among many things the hemispheres of the brain (right/left) and the balance/middle pillar (corpus callosum )

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corpus_callosum

It can also mean the right hand side of the body,left hand side of the body,and the spine (middle pillar).

CassaroR1-8

In an atom you have a proton(male),electron(female) and neutron (middle pillar/androgynous/balance/equilibrium)

Another representation of the three pillars are the two tropics,Tropic of Cancer,Tropic of Capricorn and the middle pillar represents the Equator.

Also the three pillars of freemasonry.

Pillars2

 

Now notice each of the sephiroth (spheres) on the kabbalah tree of life has a number from 1 to 10.

God represents the balance of the two forces (male and female) which is represented by the middle pillar.

Now with that said,count up the numbers on the spheres of the middle pillar.

Kether,Tiphareth,Yesod and Malkuth.

1+6+9+10 and it also adds up to the number 26!

Now we go back to the vision of the four living creatures of the Zodiac as seen by both Ezekiel and John the Revelator.

The four living creatures represent the four fixed signs of the zodiac,(and YHVH….respectively Fire,Water,Air,Earth)Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh.

(A quick recap of the four fixed signs…..The Lion represents Leo (Fire),The Eagle represents Scorpio (Water),The Man represents Aquarius (Air) and The Bull represents Taurus (Earth))

The fixed signs are the middle signs of each season and equate to the middle pillar of the tree of life.What I mean by that is that Leo is the middle of summer,Taurus middle of spring,Aquarius the middle of winter,and Scorpio middle of autumn.

Now that said,of the twelve houses of the Zodiac…

See the chart below,locate the four living creatures,and note what number of “house” they rule.

The second house is ruled by Taurus (one of the living creatures)

The fifth house is ruled by Leo

The eighth house is ruled by Scorpio

and the eleventh house is ruled by Aquarius.

These are the four living creatures!

Now add up the four “house numbers”

2+5+8+11 and you get the number 26 yet again!

03-infographic-houses-signs-rulers

Then there is the word “God” in “English Gematria” (English has 26 letters unlike Hebrew which has 22)

The letter “G” is the 7th letter of the alphabet.

The letter”O” is the 15th letter of the alphabet.

And the letter “D” is the 4th letter of the alphabet.

7+15+4=26

And finally what about the cube of space from the Sepher Yetzirah,featured in an earlier blog.

Here it is again below.

cubic
Notice also the 22 Hebrew letters in their relation to the cube of space.

Now the cube has 6 sides,8 points and 12 lines…and wouldn’t you know

6+8+12=26.

And going slightly off topic but again it might be relevant,notice what the Sepher Yetzirah says about the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet equating to the 10 fingers of the hand,and in between we have our tongue where we get the word “lingual” ( the connection to “lingam”)

And between our 10 toes we have the penis (lingam)

and 10+1+10+1=22 (the 22 creative letters of the Hebrew alphabet)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sefer_Yetzirah#Structure

Also notice the letter yod is the tenth letter (number 10) which contains a 1 and 0…or Adam and Eve (Odd and Even),and as an earlier blog said..it’s all about ones and zeros folks!

Yod is the creative letter of Hebrew,as Lon Milo Duquette says,blow on the letter “Yod” and it will reveal all the other letters.(“Yod” looks like a candle flame!)

http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Grammar/Unit_One/Aleph-Bet/Yod/yod.html

yud

Small yet powerful,just like “Yoda” in Star Wars!

Now to the blog about the divine victim.

John 11:49-51

But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.” 51He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation.

According to Margaret Alice Murray in her book “The God of the witches”:-

In the primitive Western cults of Europe,the leader was a “Sacred King”,sharing both kingly and priestly duties,and there is strong evidence that the King or “God” of the cult would sacrifice his life for the group in the event that the crops failed or some other tragedy fell upon the group.He would also be killed when he started showing any signs of weakness,such as greying hair,loss of teeth,waning sex drive,illness.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_king#History

The “God” died by one of three methods….Fire,Shedding of blood (so that the blood should fall on the ground) and by Asphyxiation.

dying kingdying king 2

You can see by the wikipedia page below this seems to have been a widespread belief and practice,even outside Europe.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying-and-rising_god

The “one” took on the sins of the nation.

They became the scapegoat for the Nation.

The bible talks about scapegoats and the ritual involved.

Leviticus 16:8-10

“Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat. “Then Aaron shall offer the goat on which the lot for the LORD fell, and make it a sin offering. “But the goat on which the lot for the scapegoat fell shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement upon it, to send it into the wilderness as the scapegoat.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scapegoat

Remnants of this ritual still persist to this day in Ireland at the “Puck Fair”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puck_Fair

NWS_20140625_New_004_32069461_I1
King Puck with his crown.

Notice the book above says it could be the King himself,it could be an animal,or a human substitute for the King,which would give the King an extended reign.

In the original 1973 film “The Wicker Man” (Also a play on words “Wicca” Man) we are shown this “divine victim” ritual or practice,in that when there is a poor harvest one of the young virgin girls of the island is to be sacrificed,although there is a plot twist in the film!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wicker_Man_%281973_film%29#Plot

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicca

The King could be showing signs of losing his power and be killed by one of the younger men in the group who then takes his place as the next “Divine King” or “Rex Nemorensis” “King of the Wood” or “Grove”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_Nemorensis

This motif is the subject of the film “Apocalypse Now” where at the end of the film,the “King” (Colonel Kurtz) is killed by the U.S army captain Benjamin Willard and the villagers all bow down to Willard. (the new Rex Nemorensis)

images

Another clue as to this killing of the king ritual being the theme of the movie is Colonel Kurtz’s reading material you see lying around.

Namely “The Golden Bough” and “From Ritual to Romance” and these two books deal with the sacrifice of the King.

242hhkh

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Bough#Subject_matter

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_Ritual_to_Romance

Read the trivia in the above wiki page about the son killing the father/king.

(And the song “The End” by the doors has lyrics pertaining to the Oedipus Complex in the movie Apocalypse Now)

Another linked theme is the land being a barren wasteland until the old impotent King dies and the new virile King brings in a new time of prosperity.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasteland_%28mythology%29

You will also notice in the wikipedia page “Golden Bough subject matter”about Kings and Priests having to fulfill their very serious vows.

These vows included death after reigning a period of time,or death if crops failed.

You will notice this theme most clearly in the film “Eye of the Devil” again starring David Niven,Deborah Kerr and Sharon Tate.

David Niven is called back to his vineyard after the crop fails at his vineyard and a blood sacrifice (Niven) is required to bring back the vineyard to it’s former glory.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_the_Devil#Plot

Notice Sharon Tate plays a girl named “Odile” (Odile is the black swan in Swan Lake)

Also did you know that Swan Lake may have been based on Ludwig II,as Tchaikovsky took great interest in the life story of Ludwig.

And also have a read at the mysterious events surrounding Ludwig’s death and his connection to swans…he was called the “Swan King” and lived in a castle at “Schwansee” (Swan Lake).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_II_of_Bavaria#Mysterious_death

In his book “The Golden Bough” James Frazer also links this dying God,who dies to take away the barren wasteland and restore the land to it’s former glory as applying to the figures of Osiris,Tammuz,Attis,Adonis,Dionysus and Jesus.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying-and-rising_god

The death and departure of the Gods where a God (or pantheon of Gods) dies,is killed or destroyed.

Just as the bible says there is a time to live and a time to die…everything has it’s tidal rhythm.

And just as summer has to give way to the dark months,everything must come to it’s end.

In the Book of Revelation it is telling us about a great cycle coming to an end,it is called an “Age” and lasts approximately two thousand years.

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/the-day-year-and-great-year/

That is why Revelation shows us horsemen with scales (Libra,first month of autumn,red horsemen with swords,Scorpio and white horse with bowman,Sagittarius)

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
Death,Chaos and Darkness are connected to the dark part of the cycle….namely Autumn and Winter…with the Lamb of Aries in the distance…The lamb of Aries is when the Sun returns to fructify the earth once more as daylight becomes longer than the nighttime and overcomes the darkness.

At some point the light will disappear and the dark forces will reign,however like summer gives way to the dark days,these dark days will have to give way to the light yet again…it is a cycle and the bible gives us the assurance that the light will return by telling us the lamb will be on the heavenly mount again…the lamb is Aries,the month of the spring equinox,the return of the lamb of God who takes away the darkness/sin (“sin” in Spanish means without) of the earth,the barren wasteland that winter leaves behind and brings back growth/warmth/fecundity and light.

We are at the end of this light part of the cycle right now and darkness will have it’s day,but just like the symbol of the owl in the previous blog,the darkness will bring us more wisdom and teach humanity’s survivors a harsh (and ultimately good) lesson and will eventually usher in a whole new way of thinking and behaving.

We can see the old wineskins leaking right now,people are leaving religion in droves,it is outdated and cannot hold the different influences of this new “age/aeon.”

James Frazer says in the Golden Bough that there is a three phase action that goes on…

First….Magic which gives way to Religion which in turn gives way to Science and we see that happening right now.

The Old Gods of this age are about to give way to the new.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_or_departure_of_the_gods

And by “Gods” I mean our inner psyches/modes of thought that are being projected out from us all.

If you break the word “mocking” down you get “mock king” and again this brings us back to the substitute stand in for the death of the King.

mock king 001

With this in mind pay attention to John 11:50 mentioned in the book above.

“Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.””

Caiaphas (being high priest) would have understood this ritual of the “mock king”, “divine victim” and “scapegoat” “sacrificial lamb” very well.

And didn’t they mock Jesus?

Luke 22:63

“Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him”

Matthew 27:28

“They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

stdas0794

Is this what the bible is telling us about,this sacrificing a Divine Victim to bring about prosperity to the barren wasteland,this well known ritual that has echoed all throughout history?

The death of the “Christ” brought about new growth and a new mode of thought.

Margaret Murray in her book “The God of the Witches” gives four examples of historical characters she claims may have been involved in this ancient ritual.

These four are:-

Thomas Becket (who she says was a stand in for Henry the 2nd)

Rufus (William 2nd,son of William the Conqueror).

Joan of Arc.

Gilles de Rais.

Here are some interesting things she says about the Thomas Becket killing.

divine victim becket 001

divine victim two 001
Just as Jesus garments was shared between four soldiers,Becket was killed by four soldiers. Notice also the opposites,male and female ritual killings. Jesus dies and the veil was rent…(the veil is the female) Becket and the connection to the broken sword….(the sword is representative of the male)

In the film “Eyes wide shut” Tom Cruise’s character is in deep trouble after seeing too much at a ritual until a woman stands in for him,becomes his scapegoat and is found dead soon after.

Screenshot_062
Dr. Harford faces his savior, who will give her life for his safety.

And I’m sure you will find lots of interesting things in the wikipedia page below about the Fisher King and the links to this theme also.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_King

In Ancient Babylon,the killing of the King was acted out at “Zagmuk” (beginning of the year)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zagmuk

And the festival of “Sacaea”

http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Sacaea

All these festivals are connected to the sun and the zodiac.

Every year at the winter solstice,the “old” Sun (of the previous year) dies to give way to the “newborn” sun who starts his cycle of the next year.

“The King is dead (old sun),long live the king (new sun)!”

The old sun is at it’s weakest state at the winter solstice and is replaced by the new invigorated sun which starts his cycle.

This is the one common bond between all of the myths of the dying and resurrecting Gods such as Attis,Dionysius,Bacchus….Jesus!

The Jewish festival of “Purim” has a “substitute” killed in place of the intended victim(s).

Haman tried to persuade Ahasuerus the King to order the killing of Mordecai and all the Jews in Persia.However the plot is foiled by Queen Esther resulting in Haman and his sons being killed in place of the intended ones.

As a side note,in astrology the two benefics are Jupiter and Venus.

http://theastrologydictionary.com/b/benefic/

Marduk is associated with Jupiter and Esther with Venus/Astarte….Ishtar.

The title of the “Golden Bough” comes from the Aeneid when Aeneas and the Cumaean Sibyl present the plucked Golden Bough to the gatekeeper of Hades in order to gain admission.

(Interestingly the Aeneid is written in 12 parts (zodiac) and is split into two (books 1-6) and (7-12).

The 6 months of light and darkness!

20150416183549!Golden_bough
Turners painting of the Golden Bough

In the book he tells of Lake Nemi (which Turner also painted) near Rome,where there is a sacred grove dedicated to Diana Nemorensis. (Diana of the Wood)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_Nemorensis

Diana is the Goddess of the moon and hunting.

Frazer tells us in this grove there grew a certain tree of which no branch may be broken.

And there was also a priesthood with strange customs.

The only one who could break off a branch would be a runaway slave who was then entitled to fight the reigning priest in battle,and if he slew him reigned in his stead and became the new “King of the Wood.”

“Rex Nemorensis”

Just as Martin Sheens character became in the film “Apocalypse Now” after slaying Marlon Brando’s character as stated above.

Frazer said the ancients called this branch “the golden bough” talked about in the “Aeneid” (a poem written by Virgil),in which Aeneas with the help of Deiphobe (the Cumaean Sibyl) plucked a golden bough to give to Proserpina in order to gain access to the underworld for Aeneas to see his father.

So the Golden Bough was linked to death and the underworld.

This strange rule of succession by the sword was,according to Frazer still observed at the time of Caligula who had a priest of Nemi killed who he deemed to have reigned too long,also a Greek traveller talked about this ritual happening in the time of the Antonines.

Frazer also tells of various tribes and peoples who killed their king when the king’s strength failed,and it is very widespread throughout the earth.

The kings of fire and water in Cambodia…….

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2_zKFyHlBk0C&pg=PA257&lpg=PA257&dq=kings+of+fire+and+water+cambodia&source=bl&ots=F9aXLI0q1z&sig=-zlonC1McTprKRNu97UKUq28uOI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CDoQ6AEwBmoVChMI__rmttKZyAIVQWsUCh07PAMb#v=onepage&q=kings%20of%20fire%20and%20water%20cambodia&f=false

The Chitome of Congo

The Ethiopian kings of Meroe

The Shilluk people

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shilluk_people

And here is an extract from “The Golden Bough” where Frazer talks about the “Matiamvo.”

“The Matiamvo is a great king or emperor in the interior of Angola. One of the inferior kings of the country, by name Challa, gave to a Portuguese expedition the following account of the manner in which the Matiamvo comes by his end. “It has been customary,” he said, “for our Matiamvos to die either in war or by a violent death, and the present Matiamvo must meet this last fate, as, in consequence of his great exactions, he has lived long enough. When we come to this understanding, and decide that he should be killed, we invite him to make war with our enemies, on which occasion we all accompany him and his family to the war, when we lose some of our people. If he escapes unhurt, we return to the war again and fight for three or four days. We then suddenly abandon him and his family to their fate, leaving him in the enemy’s hands. Seeing himself thus deserted, he causes his throne to be erected, and, sitting down, calls his family around him. He then orders his mother to approach; she kneels at his feet; he first cuts off her head, then decapitates his sons in succession, next his wives and relatives, and, last of all, his most beloved wife, called Anacullo. This slaughter being accomplished, the Matiamvo, dressed in all his pomp, awaits his own death, which immediately follows, by an officer sent by the powerful neighbouring chiefs, Caniquinha and Canica. This officer first cuts off his legs and arms at the joints, and lastly he cuts off his head; after which the head of the officer is struck off. All the potentates retire from the encampment, in order not to witness his death. It is my duty to remain and witness his death, and to mark the place where the head and arms have been deposited by the two great chiefs, the enemies of the Matiamvo.

There are many,many more examples in his amazing book.

He also talk about Kings who only reign for a fixed term before being killed and replaced.

judgment of paris
“The judgment of Paris” talking about “The three Goddesses” who give the pomegranate to the upcoming “King” who must kill the reigning King. (the three Goddesses equate with the three spirals talked about in the “sex and religion” blog.

Temporary Kings.

Killing of the Kings son.

Divine substitutes.

There are many other movies containing this theme,like the Lion King,The man who would be King and I’m sure you will know a good few yourself.

Lon Milo Duquette says in one of his interviews that the consciousness of the ancients was to the extent that they thought the sun died every day and rose again the next morning,and it also died every year at the winter solstice.

However we now know that the sun doesn’t die,it just disappears for part of its daily and yearly cycle.

Well Mr. Duquette says our consciousness is now raised to the point where we realize….just as the sun does not “die”,neither do we,he says when we die we are moving to a different part of our cycle which is eternal.

He says we are never “switched off”,we are always “on”.

1st Corinthians 15:26

“For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death.”

Well I hope this blog sets you on another path of learning yourself,as no vicarious religious institution can save you.

You are both pupil and teacher.

Thanks for reading!

 

“La Belle Dame sans Merci” is coming!

0c27cbc4cfbecb5dfae2916c5a68b66c.1000x610x1

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.

I see a lily on thy brow,
With anguish moist and fever-dew,
And on thy cheeks a fading rose
Fast withereth too.

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.

I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan

I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.

She found me roots of relish sweet,
And honey wild, and manna-dew,
And sure in language strange she said—
‘I love thee true’.

She took me to her Elfin grot,
And there she wept and sighed full sore,
And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.

And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.

I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’

I saw their starved lips in the gloam,
With horrid warning gapèd wide,
And I awoke and found me here,
On the cold hill’s side.

And this is why I sojourn here,
Alone and palely loitering,
Though the sedge is withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.

Who…or rather “what” is Keats talking about in this poem?

Again this picture of the sine wave should clue us in to what the poem is about.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_waveOn the left of the graph above,you see Aries the ram.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars!

Mars is the warrior,the God of war(think of martial law and martial arts…they come from Mars),he is the knight-at-arms in Keats’s poem above,Mars kicks off the male/life/light/growth part of the yearly cycle in March 21st….(March is named after Mars)….this is the upper arch in the graph above.

Remember the male part of the year is Spring and Summer,the male represents the light…again…think of the Sun…if you have a male child he is your son…or Sun.

The light is needed for things to grow….and spring/summer is the part of the year when the earth grows things.

This is known in freemasonry as the royal arch.

The 6 months of light.

RA 200

However,autumn and winter are the female,dark part of the year.

The lower arch of the sine wave (notice there is no colour in the bottom part of the sine wave?) starts in the sign of Libra on September 22nd/23rd…..and that is the part of the sine wave/cycle the poem is dealing with.

winter arch 001
This is the “female” part of the sine wave. The dark/deadly/cold/negative part of the sine wave which gives us autumn and winter.Santos Bonacci says this is the magnetic part of the “pulse” of the sine wave,the drawing in/attractive part of the zodiacal cycle and all other cycles…..the zodiac is in all cycles.This  negative part of the sine wave starts at Libra in the yearly cycle. Evening in the daily cycle.

The male part of the day is morning and afternoon….light/active.

Evening and nighttime is the dark/passive part of the day’s cycle…the female.

Being awake and active is your “male” part of your daily life cycle.

Being asleep and dreaming is the female part of your daily life cycle….the female passive.

I wrote before that “vertical” is the male and “horizontal” the female a blog or two ago.

Think of the vertical parts of the four seasons…they are called the “SOLstices”….and again “Sol” is the sun…..the male.

The equinoxes are the female,”Equi-NOX” means equal nights,and again it links us with the female/horizontal part of the year……nox/night being the equivalent of winter/female/dark….the feminine principle/the dark in the yin/yang….again two males and two females.

Freemasons call the two solstices the “two St. Johns” or “Holy Saints John”

hsj
Holy Saints John

http://www.themasonictrowel.com/Articles/Symbolism/st_johns_files/two_st_johns.htm

Now with the understanding that we are dealing with the autumn equinox and the meeting of the two forces at this special time of the year (male and female)….let’s have a look at the poem again.

Keats is talking about the end of the spring/summer/male/growth part of the season.

Mars…and the Sun’s time is almost extinguished at the sign of Libra……in fact there are only two times every year where the male and female parts of the year meet or join together.

The Spring Equinox,which we have seen in the “Aries and the lamb of god” blog.

And the other is the Autumnal equinox,and this is what we are looking at in Keats’s poem and this blog.

The two equinoxes when the Sun and Saturn “meet.”

maxresdefault
They also “meet” in Aries.

Important info below,for understanding these concepts.

Saturn exalts in Libra,and the Sun falls,whereas it’s the opposite in Aries.

Mars is in his detriment in the sign of Libra also…the warrior has come to his end at the hand of the maiden Venus.

http://therealastrology.com/information/detrimental-planets.html

Scroll down in the above link to see Mars is in detriment in Libra.

Notice Venus and Saturn in Libra both “bring down” the Sun and Mars. (Saturn is Satan and Venus is Eve in the bible drama of “the fall of MAN” (Sun/Mars).

Saturn and the Sun are opposites as are Mars and Venus.

The darkness has returned to the earth…the “dark maiden” of Solomon’s song is back on the scene.

The dark part of the yin/yang………yin!

yin-yang

She is beautiful….and yet she is deadly……without mercy.

And aren’t both Autumn and Winter deadly….without mercy…and yet beautiful also?

The female of the species is deadlier than the male.

The female equates to Isis…whose veil mortals can never uncover.

heho_statue_of_isis
The statue of the veiled Isis given to Herbert Hoover by the Belgians.

http://www.nps.gov/heho/learn/historyculture/isis-statue.htm

She is the occult/left handed/sinister maiden.

She is the black widow….black again because Saturn starts his rule…he exalts in Libra to start his rule over the dark part of the year.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis

Notice in the wiki page above Isis is also called “Aset” or “Iset”…….which equates also to “Set”…..the dark god who is the enemy of Horus….and also sunset….just as the sun goes into the underworld and darkness arrives on the earth.

Saturn’s colour is black…..as is Isis’s colour (along with green)….the terrorist group ISIS have black flags do they not,and the colour of flags of Islam are green..are they not?

Isis’s colour is black because of Saturn and the soil/night/winter/darkness….and death!…the female part of the cycle.

But on another level….white,Isis name connects with Ice.(all the colours of light make white light…all the colours of matter..e.g paint when mixed make black)

Notice the poem says….

“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.”

He is talking about the end of the growth cycle on the earth!

“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.”

The haggard light has almost perished from the earth….the harvest is over…the squirrel has gathered the food to get it through the dark part of the yearly cycle.

The harvest is over….no more growth.

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.”

The knight or male “force” meets a lady in the meadow….this is the coming together of the male and female part of the year…the meeting of the two at the autumn equinox….the male part of the year is about to hand over the reign to the female/beautiful…yet dark/cruel/deadly part of the year.

“I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan

I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.”

http://www.john-keats.com/phpboard/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1044

Notice that they meet and interact?

Again this is the “Hieros Gamos.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hieros_gamos

Rosarium_11_fermentatio

Also if you look at the picture above near the bottom of the wiki page mentioned…you will see the hieros gamos pic above is called “fermentatio“…..and isn’t it this part of the year that the grapes are picked and fermented into wine?

Santos Bonacci makes an interesting point,when he says Jesus (the sun) is crucified four times every year (hence the four accounts of his crucifixion in each of the four gospels)….at the two solstices and two equinoxes…….he explains how one of the accounts of the crucifixion of Jesus is talking about the Autumnal equinox.

In talking about these verses from John 19:29,30.

The Death of Jesus
29A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Santos says that this is the end of the wine making part of the year,where the last of the wine turns to vinegar…and in ancient times the priests would say…”it is finished!”
The wine making is done.
There are two passovers every year…the spring passover (march 21st) when the sun is on it’s way up to the tropic of cancer/longest day.
And the autumnal Passover,(or rather a passunder/assunder) (september 23rd)…when the sun is on its way down to the tropic of Capricorn/shortest day/death and rebirth of the Sun.

Next notice Keats says this:-

And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.

I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’

Spring/summer is the awakening of the earth…when things come (spring) to life.

However autumn/winter is when the earth goes to sleep/and the sun is in its sleep part of the cycle/sine wave…just as we are when it gets dark.(we sleep and dream too!)

And again he talks about pale warriors……and death!

This is the same symbolism contained in the vision of the four horsemen (see previous blog)

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
Notice the horsemen coincide with the autumnal zodiac signs,The black horse represents Libra (see the scales of Libra in his hand?),Scorpio(the red horse,Scorpio is ruled by Mars and the colour of Mars is red.Also Mars is the god of war/sword) Then next in the cycle of the zodiac is Sagittarius (horse and man with a bow) these three signs signify death to all growth on the earth…..and the pale horse of death (Capricorn ruled by Saturn the grim reaper/old father time/death) that walks behind these three autumnal death bringing signs….however there is hope in this picture….see the lamb of Aries in the distance?….the return of the dawn and light to the earth in the form of the new age of Aquarius. (The lamb represents the dawning of the new age…and if you’ve been following the blog….dawn/spring starts in Aries the lamb/sheep/ram)

Another wee side note……notice Keats has the knight kiss the “belle dame”…how many times?

“And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.”

From the four seasons to the four elements…..the four is ubiquitous in myth and scripture…….it is represented by the cross in Christianity.

Again as seen in previous blogs,this same allegory is seen in paintings,such as this one below “Venus and Mars” by Botticelli.

500px-Venus_and_Mars
notice that there just happen to be four satyrs and one of them is trying to waken Mars up! (Spring is approaching) Also note the implements of a knight belonging to Mars…he is a man of war just like the knight in Keats poem.

Mars is sleeping…just like the knight in Keats’s poem……And Venus is awake.(it is winter).

A good thing to remember would be that Mars rules Aries (spring equinox)…light/day,which kicks off the six months of light and growth.

And Venus rules Libra….the autumnal equinox….dark/night….Libra kicks off the six months of darkness and death.

Mars and Venus are two opposites…..Mars starts the light part of the cycle off and Venus starts the dark part of the cycle.

The picture above is telling us of the female/dark/night/winter part of the cycle.

This part of the year is talked about in allegory in the bible for instance in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verses 5-8 where the dark maiden says

5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped [with] myrrh, and my fingers [with] sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.

6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, [and] was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I [am] sick of love.

However there is another secret contained in the scriptures.

Satan/Saturn/Lucifer is both male and female.

Isaiah 14:12

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

In one sense it is talking about the sun as it heads down into the wintry part of the cycle….the son/sun of the morning…yes!

The sun is the morning star….the sun is a star that arrives every morning!

However Lucifer is also Venus….the feminine….Sophia…..the light bearer!

Just as the woman bears children,the darkness/Isis gives birth to light.

(Isis is the light bearer,she says the fruit she brings forth (bears) is the sun)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_%28name%29

And doesn’t Sofia mean “wisdom”…and isn’t that connected with Eve and “wisdom” from eating the apple….Eve is Lucifer (Lucifer means light-bearer)…..the female.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer#Mythology_behind_Isaiah_14:12

And that is why Lucifer is female in the film “the ninth gate”

3c4a6cba505bad325392cefed7ea5f7b-0

Lucifer falls from heaven….a heavenly fall.

The story of Eve and the fruit is called “the fall of man” where they fall from Eden/paradise/garden/heaven……an earthly fall.

So we have two “falls.”

From that fall Adam and Eve gained wisdom,knowledge of good and bad.

Genesis 3:22 notes, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.”

They became like the gods!

Nighttime is the time to receive wisdom and knowledge,the darkness is that what gives knowledge and wisdom…the occult…the hidden treasures of the bible.

You find hidden gems in the dark soil,and pearls in the deep water, hidden in the oyster shell.Notice the two elements involved,earth and water?……earth and water are the female elements….the dark maiden!

This is why the owl is a symbol of wisdom…..it is connected to night and darkness.

The_Wise_Owl

That is why occult literature (including the bible when we look under the surface) gives knowledge and wisdom….notice the owl with books. (Libra/Library/Liberty).

(The candle in the round dish representing sex/wisdom/knowing(when Adam and Eve had sex..the bible says he “knew” his wife) the straight candle is the penis/the round dish the vagina).

Knowing is connected to wisdom and also sex.

John 17:3

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

When talking about Adam and Eve having sex….the bible says this

Genesis 4:1

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

Just another side note,when I was a Jehovah’s Witness,the JW bible (New World Translation) said this at John 17:3.

“This means everlasting life…taking in knowledge of you and of the one you sent forth”

Whereas all other bibles say this:-

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

You may say…what’s the difference?

“Knowing” and “taking in knowledge” are two different things entirely…you might take in knowledge of some film star from books,however you don’t know them like their husband/wife does….the bible is talking about this intimate “knowing” (gnosis).

Looking again to the owl above…isn’t the sign of Libra the start of the autumn/winter cycle/darkness…and isn’t the word “Libra” contained in library…connected to the books that the owl is sitting on.(“wisdom” comes also from books/”sex” on another higher plane)

Doesn’t Isis (Satan/darkness/female/matter) give birth to light?

“The fruit I bring forth is the sun,” she says.

The darkness gives birth to light!

This is why priests wear black robes…feminine attire….representing darkness/Libra/female/wisdom/Saturn…..and the white collar with the head representing the light arising out of the darkness.

The balance of the two forces!

priest-costume-15881

Also judges….and that is why they wear a lambs wool wig representing the light of Aries.

male-wigs-701273

Dagon is a god who is connected to the sea and fish.

dagon6
Dagon coming out from the sea,and the dark and the moon….. All female symbolism…winter/dark (and even “evil” as we perceive it on our plane of consciousness).

 

atargatis
 Dagon or Oannes coming out from the sea.

If you read my blog on sex and religion…the name “Oannes”/Jonah/john is connected to the yoni.

The yoni is the vagina,the female,and it links to the fish,and the vesica piscis…(bladder of the fish).

51f173fa55b428522b04f4279d889a26
notice the vesica piscis.

Venus is also connected to the sea….just like Dagon!

6103729211_11eb863fdf

What Venus and Dagon represent is again the dark half of the year…the feminine…”the beautiful woman without mercy” as Keats calls her.

Also,Satan or Saturn,the ruler of the lower forces and planet earth in that he symbolizes time and restriction/hardship/teaches lessons.

Remember in the tree of life,the male pillar is called “mercy“and the female pillar is called “severity“,she is severe,not merciful,whereas you think it would/should be the other way round.

She is without mercy……”La belle dame sans merci.”

And is it only wordplay that Dagon who represents the darkness is pronounced “day-gone.”

I heard the above Dagon/daygone listening to an interview with an occultist.

The feminine is Satan in disguise.

“You look like an angel/walk like an angel/talk like an angel……but I got WISE (wisdom)…..you’re the devil in disguise…..oh yes you are…the devil in disguise”

That is why there is a “Bearded Venus”…the “Venus Barbata”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Barbata

This is why Baphomet has both male and female parts.

Baphomet_Illustration_by_HauntingVisionsStock

There is a lot of symbolism going on in the above picture…let’s have a look at some of it

Notice the four elements?

FIRE coming from the head.

AIR represented by the wings.

WATER represented by the fish scales in the half circle round the penis.

EARTH represented by the goats feet.

The male/female…yin/yang.

MALE represented by the penis.

FEMALE represented by the breasts.

The shape the arms are making…giving us the hermetic saying…”As above …so below”

Or as it is said in the bible….Matthew 6:9,10

9“Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

Notice also the two serpents around the penis of Baphomet above…..does it remind you of anything?

Hermes2C
Now thanks to Baphomet you know what the staff of Hermes is….the penis. (also the spine)

This is Mercury or Hermes……..the hermaphroditic god

And the word “hermaphrodite” consists of Hermes (mercury)….and Aphrodite (venus).

The word “herm” or “herma” is linked with “penis” also.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herma

again the male/female!

And remember Hermes/Mercury is the trickster….as is Satan!

http://study.com/academy/lesson/the-greek-god-hermes-facts-myths-symbols.html

And “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he (she) didn’t exist”

So we have the symbols of the fish,and the goat in the symbol of Baphomet,and again isn’t the fish and goat the symbol of Capricorn?

imagesA woman’s vagina has a goat’s beard (goatee),the vagina is connected to the fish (the smell and also the Vesica Piscis),again the fish and goat!

Capricorn is connected to the fish and goat….this is the feminine,CARDINAL EARTH sign.

Some satanists have a goatee beard too,because they understand that it represents the winter part of the cycle/and the feminine/sinister,and the darkest part of winter is the winter solstice in Capricorn (midnight of the year),which is ruled by Saturn.

http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/39092/how-did-sinister-the-latin-word-for-left-handed-get-its-current-meaning

and satanists follow the left hand (female) path.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-hand_path_and_right-hand_path

Walter Raleigh shows us a picture of “the hidden one” in “The history of the world”

See if you can see the old goat hidden in the picture.

Title_page_The_History_of_the_World_by_Walter_Ralegh
The two arms of the person holding up the world are the horns…..the two ears are out at either side…the two breasts are the two eyes…and then you will see the beard below

The Old goat/Saturn/Satan is the ruler of the world after all!

2nd Corinthians 4:4

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.”

Notice in that verse….Satan/Saturn blinds and stops people from seeing the light….again symbolism of winter/darkness.

He is Elus,(the Elus-ive one),Kronos/Chronos/Saturn.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_%28deity%29#Sanchuniathon

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=UbsGAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA42&lpg=PA42&dq=Elus+kronos&source=bl&ots=N1aQ70Zr4m&sig=DS_E0FMMONFD2tL2tPfN2EYbV1o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CEIQ6AEwBWoVChMI0_uVjf-WxwIVQfEUCh08Ogph#v=onepage&q=Elus%20kronos&f=false

Chronos/Saturn/Santa/Satan/Old (Saint) Nick (Santa comes at the winter solstice (Capricorn) does he not?)…..Satan also brings gifts to those who do good…..remember all Gods/Goddesses/concepts/forces/symbols have a good and bad side.

For example…Venus is the Goddess/concept/force of love/desire…now love is a good thing is it not……however we also get the word “venereal” from Venus…the 7 planets or forces all have a good and bad side…7 virtues and 7 vices.

All symbols are neutral…it is our programs and prejudices and desires/actions that give them charge.

Aleister Crowley has this to say about “symbols” in “The book of Thoth.”…

001
if you’ve been following this blog and grasping some of the concepts….the footnote should also be of some interest to you! Crowley tells us to note the “N” of Jonah…..what does that mean? What does the letter “N” (Nun) mean in Aramaic/Arabic?

Santa is Saint Nicholas,Satan is also known as Old Nick is he not?

Just like Isis,Saturn has 1000 names!

Saturn is also the shadow/shade/darkness.

Whereas Jesus is the light of the world,and Satan is the shade/shadow/hidden one.

The Star of David is the 6 pointed star….which has a hexagon in the middle of it (which can also be a 2d representation of a cube)

ark3
Remember the cube has six sides….Saturn(time and restriction) has us trapped inside the box or cube of time and space…(see the blog on the Sefer Yetzirah for more on the cube of space)….when the box opens or unfolds…or it is revealed or unveiled (apocalypse or revelation)…it becomes a cross!…Jesus dies on the cross to free us from the box we are in..his death opens the box….it happens every year when the sun dies at the winter solstice and the new sun is born…….before the next box or cube arrives…see the dimensions of the box or cube of new Jerusalem in revelations…the box/cube of the new age to come!And isn’t it also convenient that when Santa/Saturn arrives we open boxes…we even call it boxing day.
102_282c
when the box opens it becomes a cross!

 

And the planet Saturn has a hexagon on its north pole also.

600px-PIA18274-Saturn-NorthPolarHexagon-Cassini-20140402

Saturn rules the dark part of the days cycle……..from sundown onwards.

And the Jewish people start their day at….sundown/sunset.

And again is it only coincidence that the Jewish new year (Rosh Hashanah) starts just at the autumnal equinox….the sunset of the year?

Rosh Hashanah means head of the year.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosh_Hashanah

The “Jews” are the ones who celebrate the dark part of the cycle,the night/winter part of the cycle,the wisdom part of the cycle…..they are the wise ones.

They are the wise ones/the cunning ones,cunning related to “cunny”,the vagina where we get the word “cunt” from…or “cunnilingus”…again it isn’t bad,it is only a word.

 

index
notice the word “kunna” means to know which takes us back to the connection between “sex” and “knowing.”

“Honi soit qui mal y pense”……”Evil be to him who evil thinks

Kundalini contains both kund/cunt (female),and lini/lingam (male)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini

In other words….the male and the female forces in the human body.

Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary about the time he got caught with his hand up the maids skirt….

“And after supper, to have my head combed by Deb, which occasioned the greatest sorrow to me that ever I knew in this world; for my wife, coming up suddenly, did find me embracing the girl with my hand under her skirts; and indeed, I was with my hand in her cunny.”

(Diary entry “25th October 1668”)

Oops!…..maybe he should have been more “cunning.”

Cunning/wisdom/Sophia/knowing are all to do with the feminine principle….the female/winter/satan/saturn part of the cycle.

I do hope you are starting to see the patterns and connecting things for yourself,because as I keep saying,it is only you that can awaken yourself,anyone else can only be the seed planter,it is your meditation and research that can awaken your higher consciousness.

1st Corinthians 3:5-7

What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.

The “God” who makes the seed grow is your higher self….your unfurling rose of higher consciousness from within yourself.

“Enlightenment”

And with that it’s time to end this blog.

Thanks for reading,fellow peoples of the planet!

 

 

 

Squaring the Circle (Wheels within wheels part four)

 

1395079788201

In one of the previous blogs (sex and religion) I stated that the compass and square (above) on one level….represents sex…..the compass being the male principle…and the square below being the female principle.

The compass (the male) on top of the female (represented by the square) with her legs wide apart.

However symbols have layers upon layers of meanings,so let’s have a look at the symbol to see if there is anything else hidden in plain sight

Let’s focus on the letter “G”…..representing “Generation” or “GAOTU”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Architect_of_the_Universe#Freemasonry

Could the seven planets be represented by the letter “G”……yes!

And the clue to revealing it is in a system known to the esoteric schools as Gematria

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria

Particularly “English Gematria” in this case.

And what is Gematria exactly?…….well it is to do with linking each letter to a number.

For instance….A is the first letter of the alphabet…so therefore has a numerical value of…1

B=2,C=3….etc etc

Now what number would the letter “G” relate to?

Well the letter “G” relates to the number 7…it is the seventh letter of the English alphabet.

And the number 7 is the number of the classical planets…the seven planets

Below shows someone with the number 7 replacing the letter “G” in the compass and square on his t-shirt.

 

masons
Also notice the 12 pointed star surrounding the compass and square…the 12 signs of the zodiac,the number 7 in the middle…representing the 7 planets the number four represented by the two points of the compass…and two points of the square. (representing the four elements). …and the hieros gamos or holy marriage between the male principle and female principle represented by the compass (male) and square (female) joined together

It can also stand for the number three in Hebrew Gematria…as the letter “Gimel” is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet …and “Gamma” in the Greek alphabet……symbols can have layer upon layer of meaning.

Why am I telling you this about Gematria?…..because in a later blog we will be looking at the tetragrammaton (YHVH) and its link to the number 26.

Here is a freemason talking about symbols and their layers…..also how symbols link to each other….and if you read carefully…you should find the 26 in there somewhere.

http://masonicdictionary.com/numbers.html

And now to this blog …the number four and the square……

In freemasonry a mason can be called a “square-man”…or are said to be “on the square”

http://www.masonicdictionary.com/square.html

On masonic rings you can see the “square on point.”

Mens-Masonic-Antique-14kt-Yellow-Gold-White-Gold-wDiamond-Ring-171047965051
“square on point” inside the square and compass symbol
pZALE1-6935325t400
square on point next to the compass and square

Why the square on point?…..well one explanation of the square on point is that it represents the four cardinal points of the zodiac.

Why?

What are the four cardinal points of the zodiac?…..well…as I started writing this blog today we are at one of the four “points”…….the summer solstice

The four points are…. the spring equinox(aries),the summer solstice(cancer),the autumnal equinox(libra) and the winter solstice(capricorn)

They represent the four seasons,spring,summer,autumn and winter

cardinal_fixed_mutable
notice the different squares of the cardinal,fixed and mutable signs

Again…..Aries is a fire sign…..A CARDINAL FIRE sign…..it is the gateway to 3 months of spring

Capricorn is the CARDINAL EARTH sign…the gateway to the three months of winter

Libra is the CARDINAL AIR sign…gateway to the three months of autumn

Cancer is the CARDINAL WATER sign….and start of the three months of summer

The number four is throughout the bible

For instance…is it another coincidence that on the FOURTH DAY….God made the luminaries that give us our signs and SEASONS….(again there are four seasons)

Genesis 1:14-19

14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

Four means foundation…it gives a platform on which things can be built

Can this also be the reason why when students graduate they wear a “mortar board?”

We also saw in an earlier blog that saturn teaches us lessons…saturns colour is black…and could this be why students wear black robes also?

Mortar_Board_589
some students with their mortar boards and black robes. masons use mortar boards also,and remember they are on the square. however the square is only a platform on which to build…the idea is to get off the square by building on the knowledge (platform) you have created.

The “square” of the year is the four seasons.

Our year has four seasons…spring,summer,autumn and winter.

The “square” of the day is….morning,afternoon,evening and night.

Also…spring is the morning of the year (dawn to midday)

summer is the afternoon of the year (midday to evening)

these two seasons are the “male” part of the year…the light!

Autumn is the evening of the year (evening to midnight)

Winter is the night of the year (midnight to dawn)

These two seasons are the “female” part of the year…..the darkness!

The four continues in the bible……the river that ran through Eden parted into four rivers

The Pishon,Gihon,Hiddekel and the Euphrates

Genesis 2:10-14

10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

Notice how one thing parts into four?

The year (one) into four seasons

The day (one) into four quarters

The Edenic river (one) into four parts.

The “ONE” God (deity/”day”ity) represented by the four letters…the Tetragrammaton!

Below is a diagram showing what each of the four letters represent.

915f88e15328f80ba6d4d3228e4078e6
Notice out of the four,two letters are male (Vav and Yod represent the penis).Two female (Heh,the opening or vagina)AS are the four elements.

The new testament (one) has four gospels

Talking about the new testament……….

When Jesus dies his garments were divided into how many parts?

John 19:23

When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

Remember Jesus is the sun and the four parts of his “garment” are the four seasons

Why the four?

Lon Milo Duquette says that to understand what “God” is…..”The One”…..is a difficult concept to get your mind around…..looked at as one thing,it is hard to make comparisons or to grasp what the “oneness” or “God” is.

We can divide the one into two to get some idea of what “the one ” is…and that is the polarity…duality.

Male and female

Good and evil

Light and darkness

We grasp that concept well.It helps us compare and contrast things.

Genesis 3:22

“And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.

However when we divide it further into “four-ness” we can start to examine things and compare and contrast what the “oneness” is,in even more depth.

That is why God’s name is divided into four letters….the Tetragrammaton.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetragrammaton

It is to help us in our understanding of what is going on!

Again that is why there are four gospel accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry….

Each of them emphasizes a unique aspect of his sacrifice and ministry. Matthew’s focus is on Christ being the son of David and a King. Mark highlights the suffering servant aspect of his ministry. John proclaims Jesus is the One and Only begotten Son of God. And Luke showcases him as the Perfect Man.

Again Lon Milo Duquette tells us that the Hebrew kabbalah divides the human soul into four parts that reflect…on a microcosmic level…universal levels of consciousness and being that correspond to the four letters of the Tetragrammaton…Yod,He,Vav,He

The four suits of the tarot represent the same thing

Wands,swords,Cups and Disks

Also matter (one) splits into the four elements of the ancients…fire,water,air and earth.

The four parts of the soul and their correspondences are:-

Chiah…the life force…the highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the Yod of the tetragrammaton,the element of Fire,the suit of Wands in the tarot,and the level of Atziluth in the tree of life.

Neshamah….the second highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the first Heh of the tetragrammaton,the element of Water,the suit of Cups in the tarot,and the level of Briah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

Ruach…the next level,corresponds with Vav in the tetragrammaton,the element of Air in the four elements,the suit of Swords in the tarot,and the level of Yetzirah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

Nefesh….is the lowest part of the soul,the animal part of the soul and it corresponds with the final Heh in the tetragrammaton,the element of Earth in the four elements,the Disks,Coins or Pentacles in the tarot,any of those three can be used to represent the same suit…and also the level of Assiah in the kabbalistic tree of life.

Again as with all other religious or spiritual ideas and concepts,they are represented by all cultures with different symbols and ideas,although representing the same idea,it is the spectrum…they are saying the same thing from a differing perspective.

An example…..if a bus crashed…….two people at opposite sides of the road would describe the same scene differently from differing viewpoints…even though describing the same thing

One may say the advertising board on the bus was a cereal advert…and the person on the opposite side of the road would say it was an advert for coffee…when both can be correct…although differing.

Everyone sees the same thing through their own lens…and this applies to cultures and these esoteric concepts.

This is why the Jewish people represent the “fourness” as the four letters…. tetragrammaton

Ezekiel saw the four as a chariot (merkabah) with the four living creatures….man,bull,lion and eagle

This is why we have the four corners of the world

And this is also why the fourth album from the amazing led zeppelin was called four symbols

If you think I’m stretching it…..Jimmy Page (guitarist supreme) understands this knowledge very well I would assume.

He used to own an occult bookstore called “equinox”

Equinox-Bookstore-640x360
isn’t the equinox to do with the two forces meeting?…the male and female…at the spring equinox..when light overcomes the darkness…and autumn equinox when darkness overcomes the light…light and darkness come together at the equinox.

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti 40th Anniversary Remaster

And Jimmy Page once owned Boleskine house…former home of Aleister Crowley.

Could this understanding of the “fourness” be why the Qur’an allows a man (the fifth element/spirit) to have four wives….the four elements?

http://www.islamcan.com/common-questions-about-islam/why-does-quran-allow-muslim-men-to-have-four-wives.shtml#.VbTCbPnLKhY

the four elements represent matter as stated before………..matter is where the word mother/mater/ma/matrix/meat comes from.

also the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maat

notice she is concerned with justice and weighing on the scales?…..this corresponds to the sign of libra……the start of the autumn/winter part of the zodiacal cycle…the female half of the year…..the dark part of the year….the dying part of the year……all growth stops at this part of the cycle

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
SEE THE SCALES AT THE AUTUMN EQUINOX AS THE SINE WAVE GOES INTO THE NEGATIVE/FEMALE/DARK/DEATH ASPECT? THIS IS THE TIME OF NO GROWTH…DEATH…..The good times are over…..hard times are ahead

Do you remember in a previous blog I said that spring and summer were allegorically the sun orgasming his rays/sperm/life activating forces over the earth

Well at this part of the year the orgasming sun rays are stopping….this is why an orgasm is called in French “la petite mort”…”the little death”

The good times are at an end!…your five seconds of summer are over!

The scorpion of scorpio just backstabbed you…and is it a coincidence that scorpio is linked to the genitals in the zodiac of the body?

Just as the tide comes in and moves out…….everything has this tidal movement

From blinking…we move from dark to light and back again.

We sleep and awaken.

we rise vertically during the day (male principle) and rest horizontally at night (female principle)

summer to winter……light to dark

good times,bad times…isn’t that another led zeppelin song?….he he

all nature has this constant movement and rhythm

In the book of Daniel chapter 7 can you remember how many beasts he saw in vision?

Yet again it is the four

notice also the four winds?

In effect then……all religions are arguing and fighting over nothing,each religion sees the same thing from different angles and expresses it in their own cultural way!

No religion is the right religion…….they all have a little piece of the same thing.

“A little piece of blue sky”

It is when you bring the wholeness into oneself….then you awaken…and the knowledge will bubble up inside your own self like a never ending fountain as you see everything connecting…….everywhere…when you start to see the patterns and gain more understanding.

You will never need to go anywhere outside yourself to get water or refreshment…no religion or person outside yourself can give this knowing..it will come from inside you!

When the pupil is ready….the teacher will appear!

However it takes real effort,struggle and sacrifice to attain it

Luke 13:24

“Keep on struggling to enter through the narrow door, because I tell you that many people will try to enter, but won’t be able to do so.”

It is a paradigm shift…..a change of consciousness…an awakening…….a renaissance…..a new birth.

John 4:9-14

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])

10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”

13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

This inherent understanding of the “fourness” is why we also have

four horsemen of the apocalypse

8293066881_0c9dc28f70_o
ARE YOU STARTING TO NOTICE THE ZODIAC IN THE FOUR HORSEMEN? A RIDER WITH A SET OF SCALES ON A BLACK HORSE…LIBRA…SATURN EXALTS IN LIBRA….SATURNS COLOUR IS BLACK! A RIDER WITH A SWORD…SCORPIO….MARS RULES SCORPIO…ALSO THE RED IS THE COLOUR OF MARS…HENCE THE RED HORSE. A MAN WITH A HORSE AND BOW?…SAGITTARIUS! THESE THREE SIGNS ARE THE SIGNS OF AUTUMN…….DEATH!….THE LIGHT DIMINISHES AFTER THE AUTUMN EQUINOX…WE ARE HEADING DOWN INTO DARKNESS AND DEATH…HENCE THE PALE HORSE OF DEATH FOLLOWING THOSE SIGNS. The book of revelation is telling us about the end of a natural cycle…..the tide is heading back out.

Also in revelation…Jesus represents the light part of the zodiac….the lamb who is worthy to open the scrolls…. The lamb = Aries (cardinal fire) ….or the lion of the tribe of Judah….Leo… (Leo is fixed fire)…two zodiacal fire signs…connected with the sun and light.

Revelation 5:5 and 6

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

What do “cardinal fire”…”fixed fire”….”mutable fire” mean?

Lon Milo Duquette explained it one time and used the element of fire to illustrate.

He said a cardinal fire sign is the sign that bursts out suddenly and says….”Hi I’m Fire” like a jack in the box…and punches you on the nose while introducing itself……think of a match igniting and all it’s energy

894771156_682000a830
the burst of all the energy of the cardinal signs this would represent aries…that brings about spring and the light in the year…overcoming darkness

He then says that fixed fire is the fire that is fully established…..or as Mr Duquette explains….if you looked at a picture of fire in an encyclopedia…..it would have a picture of the fixed fire there…the match fully lit….or a “roaring” fire.

index
match fully established….this is what the fixed signs represent………this would represent the roaring lion of leo…the fixed fire sign (funny how we even call the fire at it’s height …a “roaring” fire…roaring like the lion of leo)

Then he says the mutable sign is the fire dying…or as lon milo says….”yeah…I’m fire…but I’m flexible….whatever…(shrugs)”….or like the match about to extinguish

Burnout concept. Closeup of burning match, black background.
the match almost extinguished….this represents the sign of sagittarius…the mutable fire sign…….this represents jesus being stabbed in the side by the SPEAR of the centurion/centaur…(sign of sagittarius) and crying out to his father as his life force is almost extinguished…like a burnt out candle or match.

These are what the cardinal,fixed and mutable signs mean.

Now hopefully you will be seeing the patterns and the zodiac….once hidden right in front of your eyes coming to light as you grasp these patterns within yourself

Back to the “fourness” again.

THE HORSES REPRESENT THE FOUR SEASONS AND APOLLO…THE SUN…SEE THE RAYS AROUND HIS HEAD?

900px-Flag_of_South_Korea.svg

And the corner stone…a corner is the angle where two sides meet….see compass and square above…see also two equinoxes,dark and light meet…..it brings wholeness,equilibrium…hence the equinoxes…and isn’t one of the equinoxes in libra?

Isn’t the word libra hidden in equilibrium?

Also “equilibrium” means “when two forces meet and are balanced”

And it just so happens that the symbol for libra is the balances…the scales

Astrology is the key to everything that is going on in nature,and it is the key to understanding religion.

However it is hidden just under the surface to most folks,and they will never see it.

If I could offer any advice at all to anyone…..it would be learn the 12 signs of the zodiac and where they are in relation to the yearly cycle…and learn the seven planets and in which zodiacal house they rule….and slowly like a jigsaw puzzle…you will start to see the picture emerge.

Usually when you start a jigsaw…first you find the four corners…then the edges…then it starts to take shape!

When I was a Jehovah’s witness,I used to laugh at the ancients thinking that a turtle held up the world….well the last laugh is on me….not knowing that the ancients were symbolizing the “fourness” in nature ….and the ever changing world which moves very slowly…and also the stability and foundation of the earth.

weak nuclear force=air

(these are the two masculine principles of the four elements)

symbolized by the upright triangle

and electro-magnetism=water

gravity=earth

water and earth are the two female principles symbolized by the downward facing triangles

Aren’t the four nucleotides the building blocks of life…the platform?

Also the four beats in music

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_%28music%29

Aren’t the four beats the platform (mortar board) in which to build your song structure?

In chemistry…the four building blocks of our body are CHON

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CHON

Carbon=earth

Hydrogen=water

Oxygen =air

Nitrogen=fire

 

Remember there is also a fifth element…ether……the fifth element is the activator

It is the quintessence…again quint meaning five….and the essence

There are five platonic solids that correspond to the five elements

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platonic_solid

geometryshapes
notice the fifth element (ether) is the dodecahedron?…the twelve?…..this connects to the twelve signs of the zodiac.

Four decks of cards…..etc etc

In the world of numbers we have the four also….add,subtract,multiply,divide

So when ezekiel and john described the four living creatures…they were telling us about this ancient hidden knowledge.

It was a knowledge or a knowing of the forces of nature put into poetry,allegory,myth and scripture to be hidden to the profane or those with no interest……and yet be there for those who want to seek and find it.

Well that’s this blog done……please share if you can.

Thanks for reading!

Let’s Go Round Again! (wheels within wheels part 3)

Hello again fellow peoples of the planet!

In the last two blogs we were introduced to the decans of the zodiac and how they make up some of the stories in the bible.

Each decan takes up 10 degrees of the 360 degree circle…there are 36 decans in the zodiac!

And here is an interesting fact….what number do you get when you add up numbers 1 through 36?

……666

Think also of a roulette wheel ….it has 36 numbers in a circle (and a zero/ain soph)…the decans….and the ball spins around them….the sun…again,it is taken from the zodiac.

 

36_hc

Before we start this blog about the number seven in the scriptures we will first focus on the duo-decans.

Each duo-decan takes up 5 degrees of the zodiac,as each decan takes up 10 degrees…..and there are 72 duo-decans in the 360 degree circle…..and there is that number that cropped up in the earlier blogs…the number 72!

72

Lets see a couple of examples of the 72 in connection with the bible.

When we do….you will notice something strange…..there is a 70/72 situation going on!

What I mean by that is that on one hand we see the 70…but on closer inspection it can also be 72.

Lets take the Septuagint as an example…the seventy!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Septuagint#Name

This seventy refers to the legendary seventy jewish scholars who translated the Hebrew scriptures into Greek.

However…when you start digging a bit deeper the seventy can also become seventy two!

see the wikipedia page below…they aren’t quite sure if there are seventy or seventy two scholars!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Septuagint#Composition

Now one example is nothing…let’s see another example from the bible that shows this strange 70/72 relationship.

And it concerns Jesus sending out the 70 apostles to preach.

Luke 10:1 (King James Bible)

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.”

James_Tissot_Christ_sending_out_the_seventy_disciples_two_by_two_525

So Jesus sends out the seventy…….however according to the NIV bible we have this number.

“After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go”

seventy-two

so again we have the 70/72 puzzle.

What about the 70 generations of Noah?….or is it 72 generations?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generations_of_Noah#Other_interpretations:_Descendants_of_Japheth

Again…..what about the 70 elders in the story of Moses?

Numbers 11:25,26

Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him; and He took of the Spirit who was upon him and placed Him upon the seventy elders. And when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did not do it again. 26But two men had remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the other Medad. And the Spirit rested upon them (now they were among those who had been registered, but had not gone out to the tent), and they prophesied in the camp.

See…yet again we have this 70/72 split!

If nothing else…it should show us that rather than taking these numbers and stories literally,we should be digging deeper to understand the symbolism beneath the stories.

It isn’t only The bible that has this number 72.

In Islam there is the tradition of the 72 virgins.

http://wikiislam.net/wiki/72_Virgins

(although some sources say there are 70 virgins…again that 70/72 thing going on 🙂

http://www.webcitation.org/query?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.islam.tc%2Fcgi-bin%2Faskimam%2Fask.pl%3Fq%3D7007%26act%3Dview&date=2012-01-09

Confucious had 72 disciples.

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

In the Egyptian story of Osiris….he is tricked to lie in a lead coffin by his brother Set,and Set’s 72 accomplices.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osiris#Mythology

The connection between them all is the zodiac!

In the story of Jesus the 12 are sitting at a table eating with Jesus.

In the story of Osiris the 72 duo-decans are at a banquet eating with Osiris.

Remember when we are discussing the 12 or 72 we are talking about the table of the zodiac and the signs and duo-decans…the 12 and 72 are allegorically sitting round a table (zodiac) watching the story and journey of the sun as it travels through the 12 signs and 72 duo-decans.

They are watching the story of the sun unfold!

In the story of Osiris…..Set betrays Osiris and sends him to his doom.

In the story of Jesus…Judas is the betrayer…..the scorpion/betrayer/backbiter who kisses Jesus/the sun and betrays him.

The two of those characters represent the sign of Scorpio…the betrayer….the backbiter.

The scorpion is the sign of Scorpio that back stabs the sun with the sting in his tail and sends him down to his death in winter (at the winter solstice).

We can see this part of the yearly cycle being played out in all of those stories and myths

In an earlier blog (written in the stars) we saw that God (EL) could be represented as a bull.

This is also the sign of Taurus (the fixed sign of spring)…slap bang in the middle of spring/light!

And the sign Scorpio is straight across the zodiac table from Taurus and it is the fixed sign of autumn.

zodiac-circle-tattoo-sample
Do you see Taurus and Scorpio are opposite each other in the table.Taurus is the middle of Spring/light…and Scorpio is the middle of Autumn/darkness…they are two polarities!

When the sun/Jesus/Osiris/bull gets betrayed by the scorpion/Saturn/Set it is talking about the darkness overcoming the light in the year.

John 12:35

“Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going.”

309b94ef9a18eea5a49bd9c1b4a5f1dc

Again it’s the two foes of light and darkness in the year.

Mayday or Beltane is in the sign of Taurus……where people dance round maypoles celebrating the return of the light and growth.

Halloween is in the sign of Scorpio…where others celebrate the return of darkness and the demise of the sun.

You also see this in the Tauroctony.

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

1280px-BritMusMithrasDog
AT THE FRONT OF THE BULL WE HAVE THE DOG AND SERPENT (FORCES OF DARKNESS) ATTACKING THE BULL/JESUS/LIGHT
1280px-BritMusMithrasScorpion
AND BEHIND WE HAVE THE SCORPION ATTACKING THE BULL’S TESTICLES (LIFE GIVING FORCES OF LIGHT) SCORPIO (DARKNESS)….TAURUS (LIGHT)….ALLEGORICALLY THIS IS WHAT JUDAS DOES TO JESUS IN THE GARDEN….HE GIVES HIM THE KISS OF DEATH…THE SCORPIONS KISS…HE HANDS THE SUN OVER TO THE DARK FORCES TO EVENTUALLY BE KILLED

You will also see the 72 in the Shemhamphorasch.

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

Kircher-Diagram_of_the_names_of_God
NOTICE THE SEVENTY TWO NAMES IN A CIRCLE

These are the seventy two names of God…the duo-decans….they are forces outside and inside of us….they are forces of nature(outside) and our consciousness/psyche(inside) personified.

For example…on the earth..there are two poles….north and south…..and people can also be bi-polar….meaning …not balanced and moving from one extreme to the other in an erratic manner….so there are polarities both inside and outside of us…..man is the measure of the universe……we are the equator/balance of the inner and outer forces.

And just like electricity,they can be a force for good…or bad depending on how it is used.

Those 72 forces of nature can be used for good……..or bad motives depending on the one who understands how to manoeuvre them.

We can bring light to other people…or darkness by our words and actions.

The 72 demons in the Goetia,can be used for both means and ends.

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

1389369833108

The seventy two forces are used for “evil” purposes in the story of Osiris when they conspire along with Set to do away with Osiris…The forces of darkness overcome the forces of light.

However in the story of Jesus sending out the 72 the opposite happens…the forces of light triumph this time…look at the report of the 72 when they return.

Luke 10:17-20

17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Luke-10_17

Whereas in the tauroctony images above…the scorpion and serpent overcome the bull/forces of light.

In the story of the seventy two being sent out….those 72 disciples/powers of light…overcome the scorpion and serpent which are the forces of darkness!

It is all allegory!

In the 360 degree circle of the zodiac concerning the great year…see this blog below for more detail

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/the-day-year-and-great-year/

To pass through just one degree of the great year takes seventy two years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_age#Calculation_aspects

The pentagram which is used by occult orders is also connected to the 72.

Now we will have another look at the magnificent seven…the seven planets of the ancients.

These seven planets are everywhere in religious literature.

Again …just like we did with the 70/72 divide above….with this number we are going to see another weird divide…this time a 5/7 divide.

What do I mean?

Well let’s take a look at the seven planets themselves.

Sun,Moon,Mars,Mercury,Jupiter,Venus and Saturn.

Although they are called the seven planets,two of them aren’t actually planets…the sun and the moon…….they are the luminaries.

So in actuality there are only five planets…and two luminaries…..see the 5/7 divide happening?

Lets take it a bit further…of the seven planets or gods…five are male…and two female.

The Moon and Venus are female goddesses.

Mars,Mercury,Jupiter,the Sun and Saturn are all male gods in myth…again the 5/7 divide.

Further…what about the 7 days of the week?

Are two of them different from the other five?….yes!

Saturday and Sunday make up the weekend…and the other five are weekdays….5/7.

When Jesus fed the multitudes with the seven items of food…we again have  the divide.

He fed them with five loaves and two fishes…..5/7 yet again.

We have five senses..sight,touch,hearing,smell,taste….however according to occult lore there is also a sixth and seventh sense….5/7.

http://www.plotinus.com/sixth_seventh_senses_of_man_copy.htm

In Indian yogic/tantric teachings there are seven chakras in the body…or are there only five?

chakras
ARE THERE FIVE CHAKRAS?
ColouredChakraswithDescriptions
OR SEVEN CHAKRAS?

it is the 5/7 divide again.

What about in music?

we have the notes A,B,C,D,E,F,G

only five of the notes have sharps…A#,C#,D#,F#,G#

There are no B Sharps (it is a “C”)……unless you’re in The Simpsons!

album_The-Be-Sharps--The-Simpsons--Bigger-Then-Jesus

And there is no E sharp either…it is an “F” (E sharp is an F)…..again the 5/7 divide.

In the endocrine system there are seven glands

https://quizlet.com/6831853/the-7-glands-of-the-endocrine-system-flash-cards/

And two of them are different from the other five.

for more info on this…please take time to listen to the audio below

All throughout the bible you will find the number seven cropping up!

The seven days of creation in Genesis.

Pharaoh’s dream in Genesis 41:2 where he saw seven fat cows and seven gaunt cows.

“When out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.”

Samson’s seven braids of hair in Judges 16:13

“Delilah then said to Samson, “All this time you have been making a fool of me and lying to me. Tell me how you can be tied.” He replied, “If you weave the seven braids of my head into the fabric on the loom and tighten it with the pin, I’ll become as weak as any other man.” So while he was sleeping, Delilah took the seven braids of his head, wove them into the fabric”

The seven evil spirits talked about by Jesus at Matthew 12:45

45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”

The fall of the walls of Jericho story contains lots of sevens

Joshua 6:15,16

15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. 16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!

And we have the seven churches in the book of revelation…..the seven lamps,the seven stars,the seven angels

Also the seven “times” of Nebuchadnezzar.

http://the2520.com/nebuchadnezzars_seven_times.htm

The Elohim are also the seven

http://www.spiritual-encyclopedia.com/elohim.html

Look through the bible and you will see a vast amount of sevens and twelves,all due to the zodiac.

In a previous blog we spoke about the supernal triad in kabbalah……these are kether,chokmah and binah

these three are above the “abyss.”

However below “the abyss”  we have seven sephiroth (spheres).

Chesed,Geburah,Tiphareth,Netzach,Hod,Yesod and Malkuth.

golden dawn

We have the triangle at the top consisting of kether,chokmah and binah which bring about the seven below the “abyss.”

lets see this in a different way.

dispersion-of-white-light

We have the triangle (supernal triad) and the seven that emanate from it…in this case the colours.

However in other planes,they express themselves in other ways,they are concepts and forces that echo throughout nature.

Some called these seven “the elohim”,”the seven spirits of God”,”the seven rayed god.”

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

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

The Chinese have the “seven lucky gods”

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

These seven forces/planets make up the days of the week cycle.

The seven colours are the rainbow bridge or “Antahkarana” which has to be crossed over to return to the oneness (or white light).

http://www.cosmicconsciousnessonline.com/family-of-light-channeling-articles/Antahkarana-Rainbow-Bridge-Light-Oneness-Consciousness.html

The statue of liberty has seven rays.

statue 2
The seven rays represent the seven planets.

In fact the statue of liberty was given to America by French Freemasons who understand these occult teachings.

3733736786_420c030a8a_b

 

The seven planets make up our three dimensional world as was stated in an earlier blog.

three dimensional twins 001
The seven planets or concepts/forces/consciousnesses make up our three dimensional world…those forces are the elohim…the creator gods.

Occult teachings say that these septenaries create also the cycles of evolution where we can “octave” or spiral up a step rather than circling or getting caught in the loop.

Do ray me fa so la ti…and the octave Do!

http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/ub/v13n01p10_the-septenary-cycle-of-evolution.htm

 

Pythagorus said the number seven represents the law of evolution.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=i6MUPGhWZ6oC&pg=PA98&dq=pythagoras+seven+number+of+law&hl=en&sa=X&ei=AE9gVcypF4LfUZT8gOAI&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=pythagoras%20seven%20number%20of%20law&f=false

So know when you read about the number seven in the bible…it is telling us about these hidden teachings.

DO NOT TAKE IT ALL LITERALLY!

When you come across a number seven,12,4,72,40….you should know that it is hiding something from us….just under the surface…and some of the rabbis say that the more ludicrous the story is on the surface …….the more profound the hidden teachings are underneath.

However once we use the “keys” of understanding…we see the deep truths contained therein.

Moses Maimonides (1135-1205 AD) said this…

“Every time that you find in our books a tale, the reality of which seems impossible, a story that is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth…and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of spirit.”

The Zohar says this…

“Woe to the man who sees in the Torah, i.e., Law, only simple recitals and ordinary words! Because if in truth it only contained these, we would even today be able to compose a Torah much more worthy of admiration. For if we find only the simple words, we would only have to address ourselves to the legislators of the earth, to those in whom we most frequently meet with the most grandeur. It would be sufficient to imitate them, and make a Torah after their words and example. But it is not so; each word of the Torah contains an elevated meaning and a sublime mystery . . . . The recitals of the Torah are the vestments of the Torah. Woe to him who takes this garment for the Torah itself . . . . The simple take notice only of the garments or recitals of the Torah; they know no other thing, they see not that which is concealed under the vestment. The more instructed men do not pay attention to the vestment, but to the body which it envelops.”

Yes……woe to the man who takes the garment for the torah itself…or disregards the wisdom hidden underneath the garment…the real body of scripture….hidden from the ignorant and profane,who not seeing it…mock and deride it.

Manly Palmer Hall said that each of the seven wonders of the world are dedicated to one of the seven planets.

Now ask yourself this….how can that be possible when the nations in which these seven wonders were built had no great friendships with each other?

The seven wonders are …

1/The Great pyramid of Giza (the only surviving wonder) has the legend of Thoth/hermes/mercury being the builder….MERCURY

2/The Colossus of Rhodes is a statue of Helios….Helios is the……..SUN

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

3/The temple of Artemis or Diana at Ephesus….again Diana or Artemis is a Goddess of the….MOON

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

$T2eC16Z,!y8E9s2flCDUBQy9rEiv!g~~60_35

maxresdefault

4/The statue of Zeus at Olympia…now as you my have read in earlier blogs….Zeus…and Thor represent JUPITER

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Zeus_at_Olympia#Loss_and_destruction

jupiter

5/Hanging gardens of Babylon…or Semiramis

http://interesttoworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/hanging-gardens-of-semiramis-legend-for.html

Semiramis equates to VENUS the goddess of love and beauty

6/These next two are interesting…let’s take the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus first…Manly P Hall says in the secret teachings of all ages that this building was sacred to the planet MARS

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2ujsAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT200&dq=manly+p+hall+mausoleum+halicarnassus&hl=en&sa=X&ei=IBFzVePhHeOr7Aa-vIPQBw&ved=0CCAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=manly%20p%20hall%20mausoleum%20halicarnassus&f=false

7/The lighthouse or Pharos of Alexandria is dedicated to the planet SATURN.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2ujsAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT199&dq=manly+p+hall+pharos+alexandria&hl=en&sa=X&ei=NRNzVbG4JqPP7Qbx6IHQBg&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=manly%20p%20hall%20pharos%20alexandria&f=false

Elsewhere Manly P Hall said that the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus was dedicated to SATURN.

and the Pharos of Alexandria is dedicated to MARS…..seemingly contradicting the above quotes.

This used to puzzle me as to how he would get things so wrong.

However!…..It dawned on me just a few months back that he was letting us know again about that 5/7 divide….five of the wonders are the same…..and two of them can be interchangeable.

A mausoleum is linked to Saturn who is the god of time and death…and also mars……the cenotaph is a mausoleum and people gather round cenotaphs each year to remember the fallen in war…and Mars is the God of war.

The Pharos of Alexandria can also be used for both of the planets also.

MARS is connected with fire and the lighthouse used to have a fire in it each night to warn ships.

Saturn is Satan who rules over the fires of hell!…(see my blog on saturn for more info).

It is an inside joke once you get the patterns….the 5+2.

In a previous blog I mentioned that the seven also represent the vowels.

And they can be pronounced in a hard and soft way…..they have a double nature…they symbolize seven opposites.

This is why we can associate the seven with seven heavenly virtues….or seven deadly sins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_virtues#Seven_heavenly_virtues

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

Philo Judaeus spoke about the number…linking the seven to the vowels and to music.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=D8IH3w291j8C&pg=PA55&lpg=PA55&dq=philo+judaeus+seven+vowels&source=bl&ots=jzGnc1YJkZ&sig=EVStdr_SRDPnQxLcKHCT7fasCLw&hl=en&sa=X&ei=60VgVY7yFoG9Uc_6gdgI&ved=0CCEQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=philo%20judaeus%20seven%20vowels&f=false

In myth we have the seven stringed lyre of Orpheus.

Orpheus-Lyre3_800
NOTICE THE SEVEN PLANETS IN THE STRINGS? It is these seven forces that bring “harmony” to nature!

Islam has the seven also….just a small example.

In previous blogs I spoke about the Tawaf….the circling around…or walking around the Kaaba.

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

This is also called circumambulation…however….did you notice in the wiki page above….how many time the faithful have to walk around the Kaaba?

Go on….guess!

He he….thanks for reading!

And please share the blog with others if you find it interesting

There is no Messiah or God or other deity coming from outside to save us….it is us awakening the God inside us ourselves…the still small voice inside us…or as Jesus said in the scriptures.

Turn! Turn! Turn! (wheels within wheels part two)

Hi folks!

Before we jump straight into this blog…if you have little to no knowledge of the zodiac and its signs/the seven planets……and the four elements……please read the first blogs to give some background as to how this blog came about

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/the-bible-and-the-zodiac/

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/the-hidden-knowledge/

Again…before this blog gets underway…I said in the previous “wheels within wheels ” blog you can get a lot of bible stories from looking at the decans of the zodiac…the decans being the three ten-degree sections of each sign of the zodiac (each sign takes up 30 degrees of the 360 degree circle of the zodiac)

Can you remember the three decans of Cancer from the last blog?

Cancer decans are…..Ursa Minor(the little bear),Ursa Major(the great bear),Argo(the ship)

the-gospel-in-the-stars-51-638
notice the “lesser” and “greater” sheepfolds also? …..if you read the gospels…those decans might make you think of some gospel stories about a sheepfold

 

Isn’t it another coincidence that argo is a….ship!…..ARK!

Also we have two animals…the great bear and little bear (ursa major and ursa minor)

Again….coincidence?……an ark and two animals?

add to that coincidence the fact that cancer is a WATER sign…(the flood)

http://www.astrology.com.tr/water-signs.asp

so now we have water,an ark and two animals……

anything else?

well…we actually have more animals connected to cancer……in the actual constellation of cancer we have “Asellus Borealis” and “Asellus Australis”….the two donkeys!..another two animals to go in the argo!

image008

Now we have two bears and two donkeys next to the argo…ARK!

(can you also see the story of the Jason and the argo-nauts in the story…as they go looking for the golden fleece (the sun in aries the ram)…i.e the start of spring bringing back the sun from the months of darkness

And funnily enough if you take the first letter of all the months after the summer solstice has been and gone….(J)uly,(A)ugust,(S)eptember,(O)ctober,(N)ovember….you get……JASON!

Cancer is the top of the “mountain” of the zodiac….it is the acme…the heights…the pinnacle…the highest the sun will get to in the year…the longest day is in cancer

and doesn’t the ark land on a mountain?

The crab is the symbol of cancer…in Egypt the scarab beetle was the symbol of cancer

The tarot card that corresponds to the sign of cancer is “the chariot”

http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/major-arcana/chariot/

see if you can find further connections for yourself,with the sign of cancer…its decans and stars in its constellations…..and neighbouring constellations also….and also “the chariot” tarot card….it will take effort…but it is very rewarding when you see all the connections for yourself

for instance…the crab has a suit of armour…a shell…the scarab has “armour” also

and on the chariot tarot card we have someone in a suit of armour

thoth-chariot
notice also…the four living creatures…bull,eagle,man and lion…and funnily enough…a crab above his head…the sign of cancer

 

It all means something!….see if you can find anything else for yourself

“When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear”…..YOU are both the student…AND the teacher!

however….back to this blog talking about another “wheel”

The wheel we are concerned with this time is the wheel of the zodiac

The glorious twelve!

The cycle of the twelve

The twelve signs of the zodiac!

ZodiacSignWheel
the zodiac wheel

 

 

Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season)

Pete Seeger wrote the above song (made famous by The Byrds)……and it is true…everything does have it’s season

However did you know that Pete Seeger got the lyrics to the song from the bible?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

notice the polarities?

born/die…plant/reap

weep/laugh…break down/build up

war/peace….tear apart/sew together

kill/heal…..cast away/gather

 

The Kybalion (do not get confused with Kabbalah..they are different) has seven principles all concerned with natural concepts…..they are as follows

1/The principle of mentalism

“The Universe is Mental–held in the Mind of THE
ALL.”–The Kybalion.

(The principle of Mentalism embodies the idea that “All is Mind,the universe is mental”)

2/The principle of correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Correspondence embodies the idea that there is always a correspondence between the laws of phenomena of the various “planes” of being and life)

or another way of saying it…“As above so below”

3/The principle of vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything
vibrates.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Vibration embodies the idea that motion is manifest in everything in the Universe, that nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates, and circles.)

4/The principle of polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything
has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same;
opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree;
extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes
may be reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Polarity embodies the idea that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its opposite.)

everything has two poles?….hmmm

RWS_Tarot_02_High_Priestess

THE “J” and “B” on the card above stand for Jachin and Boaz

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

it means the two polarities…the male…Jachin

and the female…Boaz

jachinboaz3

In Kaballah the two pillars are called the pillar of mercy (male)

and the pillar of severity (female)

however…wouldn’t you think that the pillar of mercy should be a feminine trait?

and should not the pillar of severity be a masculine trait?

you would think so……however…here we have the fourness again….the masculine contains the feminine

and the feminine contains the masculine…..just like the yin/yang has the fourness…as does the compass and square…see previous blogs for more info on this

5/The Principle of Rhythm

(The Principle of Rhythm embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, a to and fro, a flow and inflow, a swing backward and forward, a pendulum-like movement.)

or as the Kybalion also says….“everything has it’s tides” everything has a “toing and froing”

the tide comes in…and it goes out…….the summer must eventually give way to winter and vice versa

“Everything flows out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests
in everything; the measure of the swing to the right,
is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm
compensates”–The Kybalion.

6/the principle of cause and effect

(The Principle of Cause and Effect explains that there is a cause for every effect, and an effect for every cause.)

It also states that there is no such thing as chance, that chance is merely a term indicating extant causes not recognized or perceived.

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a
    name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of
causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

for instance the “chance” of throwing a six on the dice every time…….if you knew angles and speed (the unrecognized law) to throw the dice to a microscopic extent..you could throw a six every time…it wouldn’t be chance

7/the principle of gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all
planes.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Gender embodies the idea that gender is manifested in everything.)

Gender is manifested as the Masculine and Feminine principles, and manifests itself on all planes.

The kybalion also tells us that there are those among us who understand these principles and can use the laws to gain advantage over others who do not understand the concepts and are tossed about by these laws rather than using them to their own advantage

you can get a free audiobook of the kybalion at the link below….I would highly recommend it….it furthered my understanding of these concepts by leaps and boundshttp://thoughtaudio.com/titlelist/TA0094-Kybalion/index.html

and you can also download it and put it on your mp3 player…for free!

Back to the twelve signs now

The zodiac is a wheel that turns…..it has its twelve signs and each comes in its turn…and gives way to the next in turn

The poet Manilius…celebrated in the days of Augustus Caesar,wrote this about the twelve signs

“Now Constellations, Muse, and signs rehearse,
In order, let them sparkle in thy verse.
Those which obliquely round the burning Zone,
And bear the Summer and the Winter Sun,
Those first: then those which roll a different way
From West: nor Heaven’s Diurnal whirl obey:
Which Nights serene disclose, and which create
The steady Rules, and fix the Laws of Fate.

First Aries, glorious in his Golden Wool,
Looks back and wonders at the mighty Bull,
Whose back-parts first appear: He bending lies
With Threat’ning Head, and calls the Twins to rise,
They clasp for fear, and mutually embrace;
And next the Twins with an unsteady pace
Bright Cancer rolls: then Leo shakes his mane:
And following Virgo calms his rage again:
Then Day and Night weigh’d in Libra’s Scales,
Equal awhile, at last the Night prevails,
And longer grown the heavier scale inclines
And draws bright Scorpius from the Winter signs:
Him Centaur follows with an aiming Eye
His Bow full drawn and ready to let fly:
Next narrow Horns the twisted Caper shows,
And from Aquarius’ Urn a Flood o’erflows.
Near their loved Waves cold Pisces take their seat,
With Aries join and make the round complete.”

Occult literature tells that we can find the twelve signs of the zodiac in the “blessing of Jacob”

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

This occurs in Genesis chapter 49…where Jacob is on his deathbed and gathers his sons to give each of them a blessing

Maitre_Jacob_Blessing_his_Sons
Jacob blessing his sons

The first son to get his blessing is Reuben in chapter Genesis 49:3,4

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

at the end of verse four Jacob is alluding to Reuben sleeping with Jacobs concubine Bilhah

Genesis 35:22

“While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went in and slept with his father’s concubine Bilhah, and Israel (Jacob) heard of it.”

However did you also notice that Jacob said that Reuben was as unstable as water?

and in the zodiac the only sign containing water is Aquarius…in fact the symbol of Aquarius looks like this

aquarius-labelnotice the waves?……the unstable water

1/Reuben represents Aquarius!

The next blessing is bestowed on two brothers at once….unusual….why two?

Genesis 49:5-7

“Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel”

well there is one sign of the zodiac that has two brothers in it….Gemini

86cfd2333cd6c91c95eb7391b136b007
the twins of gemini

 

What two brothers does Gemini contain?…Castor and Pollux..the Dioscuri…the polydeuces

and isn’t it strange that both sets of brothers have a similar story?

The story involves revenge for their sister…and slaughter of the men of a city

in the case of Simeon and Levi it is the rape of their sister Dinah by Shechem

and in the story of Castor and Pollux it is the rape of their sister Helen

and the slaughtering of a city in revenge

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA217&lpg=PA217&dq=simeon+levi+castor+pollux+dinah+helen&source=bl&ots=uxCuhD7nnt&sig=XUWj9_Y9xSc6_Zv1ZQYxb1g3x-M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=YGBXVZu_E8-R7Aa34IDYCQ&ved=0CCQQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=simeon%20levi%20castor%20pollux%20dinah%20helen&f=false

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=aZdTRCHSN2gC&pg=PA20&dq=castor+pollux+destroyed+attica&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAWoVChMIqICCw7THxwIVsW7bCh0tpQHZ#v=onepage&q=castor%20pollux%20destroyed%20attica&f=false

and did you notice Jacob also says…”I will divide them”

and in the myth of Castor and Pollux weren’t they divided?

Castor was killed and became a mortal in Hades and Pollux remained immortal

2/Simeon and Levi are the brothers representing Gemini

Next brother is Judah…..Genesis 49:8,9

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

Judah is compared to a lions whelp

now what sign of the zodiac contains a lion?

Leo is the sign of the lion…Leo (july-august) is the hottest part of the year in the northern hemisphere…the sun with its long rays……the lion with its mane

eclion

lion-of-the-tribe-of-judah

just a coincidence?

3/Judah is Leo

Next Zebulun at Genesis 49:13

Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.”

Of all the animals in the zodiac…which would dwell at the haven of the sea?

There are possibly two…the two fish of Pisces…..and the crab of cancer….however…notice it says “He” not “They”

There is only one….the Crab……Cancer…the home of the crab is usually close to the shore…the haven of ships

and cancer is also a genus of crabs!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer_%28genus%29

cancer

4/Zebulun is Cancer

Next Issachar at Genesis 49:14,15

14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

the name Issachar means “hireling” or “servant”

The ass or ox is the servant of man…both are “beasts of burden” that pull things in helping the labour of man

and Taurus is an earth sign……Taurus arrives at the time of year for plowing and planting and those beasts of burden help with that work

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA216&dq=light+of+egypt+%22taurus,on+the+esoteric+planisphere,is+occupied+by+issachar,which+means+hireling+or+servant%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=SmBYVZu_KoH3UszcgZAE&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=light%20of%20egypt%20%22taurus%2Con%20the%20esoteric%20planisphere%2Cis%20occupied%20by%20issachar%2Cwhich%20means%20hireling%20or%20servant%22&f=false

5/Issachar represents Taurus

Genesis 49:16

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

If you have read any of the previous blogs …you will know the sign of Libra the scales is connected to law,courts and judgment

in fact you see the set of scales connected with courts…the scales of justice

Scales-of-Justice-01

Dan represents Libra…..in fact all of the autumn signs get a mention in connection with Dan….starting with Libra the judge/law/justice

just to recap the three autumn signs are respectively…Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius

libra-scorpio-sagittarius-zodiac-sign-horoscope-stars-circle-constellations-set-three-signs-designer-38959876

scorpio can be represented by a serpent as well as a scorpion and an eagle

http://www.edgemagazine.net/2009/11/scorpio/

and Sagittarius is a horse and rider……

sagittariusand isn’t it strange that those three in a row are mentioned in those verses

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

6/Dan is Libra the judge

Next we have Gad at Genesis 49 verse 19

19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last

Gad is overcome by a troop (or little army)

what signs are connected with armies and troops?…….the answer is those signs connected with mars…..and there are only two….Scorpio and Aries…Scorpio is ruled by mars as is Aries

Scorpio is connected with generation and the sexual organs…sensual delights

and this is what is meant by being overcome with a troop…this is the fall of man through sex…the little troop according to esoteric literature is the little army of sperm

dan scorpio 001
the “seminal fluids” are connected with “the troop” also

 

7/Gad is Scorpio

Next we have Asher in verse 20 of Genesis 49

20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Again,if you have been following the blog….and joining the dots on your own…you will know the house of bread is Virgo….you will see the connection in my blog about “the eternal virgin”….Virgo holds an ear of wheat….Virgo is when the harvest begins…..in the human body Virgo corresponds to the stomach….”the bread basket”

s-l1000
He He…you get the point though

 

da_zodiac___virgo_by_yukimiyasawa-d38ffse
again…notice the ear of wheat

 

what about when the verse says “he shall yield royal dainties”….well didn’t the king “Jesus” come from Bethlehem?…and doesn’t Bethlehem mean…”house of bread?”

see the first paragraph of the wiki page below

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

__house-of-bread-copy

8/Asher is Virgo

Next…Naphtali….Genesis 49:21

21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

Next we have Naphtali…what sign does he represent?

notice he is called a hind?….a hind is a deer….a climbing animal!….as is a goat…what time of the year do we usually see deer in cards and tales?

SantaDeer

At Christmas!….Christmas is in the sign of Capricorn….also…..in the picture below we will see summer represented by a lion…and winter by a deer

tumblr_manx5dX2sc1rzhtlmo1_1280
on the far right….notice the DEER representing the winter part of the cycle…the feminine part of the cycle of the year

Naphtali means “my struggle” and this is when the light returns (the daylight starts increasing again…light struggling with the darkness….in the bible this is represented by “the slaughter of the innocents” by Herod) and little Jesus being taken into Egypt to hide from Herod’s wrath…

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

or in revelation…into the wilderness to hide from the wild beast

it is also represented in the old testament by Moses struggling with Pharaoh to set his people free…(which Pharaoh does eventually at Aries…..symbolized by the lambs blood on the door lintels of the Israelites)

Both Herod and Pharaoh represent the darkness of winter…and the weak but ever strengthening sun is represented by Jesus and Moses….and they struggle for dominion

it is the yearly natural struggle between light and dark

in the lion king it is the struggle between scar and little simba…(the weak sun…no mane)

and it also says in the bible verse above…he giveth goodly words…and we do too at Christmas

goodwill-to-all-men
the goodly words we give at christmas time…in capricorn represented as naphtali in the blessing of jacob

9/Naphtali is Capricorn

Next Genesis 49:22-26

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

24 But HIS BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

The “archers that hated Joseph” were his jealous brothers who sold him into slavery

You might also notice that this parallels the story of Saul hating David and throwing a spear at him

1st Samuel 19:9,10

“Now there was an evil spirit from the LORD on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, and David was playing the harp with his hand

Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded him as Saul drove the spear into the wall.”

(Sagittarius is a centaur…and you will see the centaur either with a bow or a spear…and it does mention a bow in the bible verse above)

The only sign of the zodiac with a bow is Sagittarius…..just a coincidence?

 

98d198d0b14cfb6fe920cad66ae87065sagittariusTo be precise Sagittarius is the centaur “Chiron”…and again….Chiron is wounded by an arrow fired by Hercules….I am sure you will see the parallels with the Jacob’s blessing of Joseph above in the myth of Chiron

http://www.comfychair.org/~cmbell/myth/sagittarius.html

You will also see the parallels with Joseph,David and Chiron in the story of Hercules and one of his twelve labours…….that of fighting the Nemean lion

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

In Genesis 49:24 it also talks about a shepherd..and that alludes to the sign of Aries

24 But his BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

now the amazing thing about all these myths when you put them together…they are talking about the element “FIRE”….why?

the fiery triplicity of the zodiac are the following….Aries(shepherd),Sagittarius(bow,centaur,chiron) and finally Leo (the Nemean lion and Hercules fighting it with his bow)

http://astrology.about.com/od/foundations/p/FireElement.htm

Hercules first labour contains all three of the fiery signs actually

Hercules fires his bow at the lion……(Sagittarius and Leo)….however there is also a ram (Aries) in the story

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemean_lion#The_First_Labour_of_Hercules

In the above page it says the following

“he (Hercules) met Molorchos, a shepherd who had lost his son to the lion, saying that if he came back within 30 days, a ram would be sacrificed

each of the signs of the zodiac take up 30 degrees of the zodiac also…..and that corresponds to the “30 days”

10/Joseph is Sagittarius

Next we have Benjamin (meaning “son of the right side”)

The right side is the favoured side….the East where the sun rises each day

Genesis 49:27

“Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”

what planet and sign is the wolf connected to?

well for one thing…the planet mars is connected to the wolf…see the first paragraph in the page below

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_%28mythology%29#Sacred_animals

and mars is where the month “march” comes from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March#Origin

and March is when the sign of Aries arrives

notice in the bible verse above it also talks about “devouring the prey?”

sheep are among the prey of wolves

Mars rules Aries

Mars is connected to wolves and Aries is connected to sheep

the bible connects the two also

Matthew 7:15

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”

remember false prophets arrive just as the Christ arrives…and the arrival of the light is at dawn…..dawn is connected to Aries…the dawn of the year is in the spring equinox……Aries

“Wolf in sheep’s clothing” is a hidden symbol of Aries

a-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing
Aries is connected with both wolves and sheep

the verse above also says “Benjamin(Aries) shall “divide the spoils”

And Aries does divide the spoils…the spring equinox separates the winter from the spring…the darkness from the light……the daylight becomes longer then the nightime…they divide

again…Mars rules Aries

11/Benjamin is Aries

 

and the blessings of Jacob stop there

28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

Strangely there seem to be only 11 signs mentioned in that blessing don’t there?

We seem to be missing one of the twelve signs…and that sign is Pisces..the two fish

However…..this matter can be resolved

Let’s go back a chapter to Genesis 48:5,6 where Jacob is talking to Joseph

Now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon are. “But your offspring that have been born after them shall be yours; they shall be called by the names of their brothers in their inheritance.…

Jacob says to Joseph…”your two sons are mine”…..the two sons belong to Jacob…….and the verse goes on to say…any born after those two belong to Joseph!

In the above verse Jacob claims Ephraim and Manasseh as his own…and those two fit neatly just like a jigsaw into the sign of Pisces…the two fish

why?…..well let’s go forward to Genesis 48:16

“the Angel who has delivered me from all harm –may he bless these boys. May they be called by my name and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they increase greatly on the earth.”

the word “increase” is “dagah” in hebrew

http://biblehub.com/lexicon/genesis/48-16.htm

“and let them grow
dagah  (daw-gaw’)
to move rapidly; to spawn, i.e. become numerous — grow.

and the word “dagah”….also means “fish”

http://biblehub.com/hebrew/1710.htm

Fish are known to breed/multiply like crazy

Do you remember another famous account of growth or multiplication with fish?….Jesus feeding the multitude with …how many fish?…..Two fish…again the sign of pisces…because Jesus was the messiah for the Piscean age

screen-capture-59

piscesThe two brothers Ephraim and Manasseh are the two fish of Pisces!

12/Ephraim and Manasseh represent Pisces!

Rembrandt_-_Jacob_Blessing_the_Children_of_Joseph_-_WGA19117
Rembrandt painting of Jacob blessing Ephraim and Manasseh (pisces)

And that gives us the final piece of the jigsaw…the twelve signs of the zodiac in the blessing of Jacob!

The next blog will be about the sevens

 

If you managed to get through all that…..thanks for reading!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wheels Within Wheels

Ezekiel 1:16

King James Bible
The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Hopefully these next few blogs will explain why the numbers three,four,seven and twelve are all throughout the bible….and what they may represent

And also show that there may be more to the bible than there seems to be on a surface reading!

When I was part of Jehovah’s Witnesses we took great pride in being apart from most of the other Christian religions in that we did not worship God as a trinity….we worshipped the one true God Jehovah!…however when I “mentally” left the witnesses and started thinking outside the box of beliefs that imprisoned my mind..I could see that the bible said Jesus was a God also…..so they really believe in two gods

I asked the elders who came to visit and “encourage” me when I was exiting the religion whether Jesus was a god……they said he was…..I then asked if he was a true god….again they said yes…..then I told them they had a problem…because the bible says there is only one true god.

However now I’m away from religion altogether I have a better understanding of what the trinity is…..and again it’s all about cosmic functions and the cycles of nature

The worship of the trinity is widespread and goes back into ancient times

In Babylon the trinity consisted of Nimrod,Semiramis and Tammuz

babylon-trinity

In Egypt we have Osiris/Isis/Horus

trinity-egyptian-in-the-louvre

In Mexico and central mexico the triad of Tohil,Awilix and Jacawitz were worshipped

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

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

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

In Hinduism there is the trimurti…..Brahma the creator/Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer

Trimurti

In the northern regions we have Odin,Thor and Freya

640px-Three_kings_or_three_gods
from left to right we have the one eyed Odin,Thor (with his hammer in his right hand) and Freya who has an ear of corn in her right hand (see my previous blogs for more on the woman holding the corn/wheat)

In fact as said previously….the expression of the trinity is spread far and wide

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_deity#List_of_triple_deities

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

Christianity expresses the trinity through the father……the son and the holy spirit

63d979ea9cee09b691b2e957e1466ab6

The triangle is also a symbol of the trinity

Trinity-Is-IsNot
those who have read my blog on sex and religion will perhaps have noticed that this triangle (the blade /the upright male triangle) is in a circle……and what it really represents

Trinity_triangle_(Shield_of_Trinity_diagram)_1896

And we also have the triquetra

triquetra1

and the triquetra in a circle…….same symbolism as the triangle in the circle

images

same symbolism as the fleur de lys…the three in a band or circle

fleur-de-lys_500kabbalah has its trinity…..the supernal triad of Kether which means crown,Chokmah which means wisdom…and Binah which is understanding

http://www.universalkabbalah.net/SupernalTriad

(in proverbs it talks about seeking wisdom and understanding)

these form the top three of the ten sephiroth in the tree of life and the highest of the four worlds of kabbalah called atziluth

8574423
again….notice it forms an upright triangle…also notice the male (chokmah) and female (binah) emanate from the one…kether…….the crown

Tree_of_Life_Diagram_with_names

the four worlds of kabbalah are as follows

atziluth

briah

yetzirah (you get the sepher yetzirah from this emanation)

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

and finally….assiah

four-worlds-color

lon milo duquette gives a wonderful talk on what those worlds mean and a basic understanding of kabbalah…I would urge you to have a watch if you want to further your understanding of this fascinating topic

you may have noticed there is another “trinity” on the tree of life

these are the three pillars

the pillar of mercy(male)

the pillar of severity(female)

and the middle pillar of consciousness….the narrow path of the bible

christianrosencreutz-color

freemasonry has three pillars also…..why?….because they are all talking about the same thing….they all understand this hidden knowledge

http://www.masonicdictionary.com/pillars.html

Bronx-Zoo-Three-Pillars-of-Wisdom-Masonic-Tracing-Board

again…notice in the above freemasonic tracing board the sun…male…golden

the moon….female…….silver

and the all seeing eye in the middle

this represents in our brain,the left and right hemispheres

and the “all seeing eye” symbolizes the balanced middle view,the “keep your eye single” it speaks about in the scriptures

“The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. The light of thy body is thy eye. If thy eye be single, thy whole body shall be lightsome. The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

Matthew 6:22

in our bodies the right side is the male side…dexter

the left side is the female side….sinister

the occult is known to be “sinister” (left handed)…not a lot of people want to look at it…….whereas religion is the right hand path….

exoteric religion is the right hand path…dexter

esoteric (hidden) teachings are the left hand path…sinister

to get an informed viewpoint of anything,you need to get both sides of the argument…..weigh them up to come to a decision

it is important to see both sides to be balanced

you can only understand the deep things of the bible by first reading the text and then digging to find out what is really being said underneath

this is also what the bible means by this scripture in Proverbs 2 verses 3-5

“For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 4If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; 5Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.…”

notice it says “her”…..these are the “feminine” teachings….the dark teachings…the occult/hidden teachings

and if you’ve read all my previous blogs you will see the “feminine” equates with winter/night/darkness/earth/water

(you find pearls in water….in the deep….do you not…and the scriptures talk about finding the “pearl of great price”)

Matthew 13:45,46

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

also…to find gems…”hidden treasures” as proverbs states above..you usually have to dig into the dirt/earth…the darkness…this means looking at the occult,hidden teachings

remember “occult” merely means “hidden” and the scripture says to look for “hidden”…”occult” treasures

when you start to grasp the real teachings they fill you with light/enlightenment….a renaissance in your thinking….a rebirth…..a “born again” experience

you come to life….you are resurrected from among the dead

however as I stated……people are usually frightened off from going near occult teachings due to cultural conditioning…and remain in the “dark”….otherwise known as ignorance

the left hand path of occult knowledge is “black” magic….connected to the female/night/winter/water

and the right hand path is known as “white” magic..connected to the male force/day/summer/fire

in our body…our spinal column is the middle pillar

in our brains we also have two hemispheres

again left hemisphere and right hemisphere

and the middle pillar is the corpus callosum which connects the two hemispheres

http://brainmadesimple.com/corpus-callosum.html

also the medulla oblongata is part of the middle pillar

http://brainmadesimple.com/medulla-oblongata.html

when the two hemispheres/poles of the brain (male and female)work together to bring to birth thought and send it down the middle pillar to bring about action

interestingly look again at the egyptian picture of the trinity again….is it explaining that process to us?

the two poles….like an anode and the cathode or the positive and negative on a battery

trinity-egyptian-in-the-louvre

in the “Creation of Adam” on the sistine chapel ceiling painted by Michelangelo

could God really be a representation of our brain…some scholars think it may be

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Creation_of_Adam#Analysis

i-8f3e98954abf5fe1ae31ef7866873835-paluzzisistine

the “heavens” or “God” represents our thoughts (the non-material) which in turn bring about actions (Adam) in the material world

every thing made around about us came from the world of thought (the heavens) before it manifests on this earth…again watch the lon milo duquette video above for a detailed description

the trinity is also the cycle of everything on this earth

for example…US

We are born…..created…we pop into existence….brahma (the creator) is the representation of this part of the three part cycle

Then we exist on this earth….vishnu is the preserver….we live our life…existence

Then shiva/saturn/the grim reaper/satan/the destroyer comes along and wipes us out of this existence

Yet those three phases make the one life…..three in one…a trinity

The jewish religion has the three patriarchs

Abraham…Isaac and jacob

When rendering worship to their god they would say things three times holy,holy,holy is the lord

Isaiah 6:3

New International Version
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”

In the zodiac this trinity is expressed in a few ways

cardinal signs….fixed signs….mutable signs

Cardinal signs…again akin to Brahma or creator….as stated previously cardinal signs are the zodiac signs which bring each of the four seasons into being

the four cardinal signs are

Aries…..Cancer….Libra…..Capricorn

Aries (fire sign) starts at the spring equinox……starts three months of spring

Cancer(water sign) is at the summer solstice…..starts three months of summer….(hence tropic of cancer)

Libra(air sign) is at the autumnal equinox…..starts three months of autumn

Capricorn(earth sign) is at the winter solstice…it starts the three months of winter

Then we have the fixed signs when each season is firmly established…bang in the middle of spring/summer/autumn/winter…those are the four fixed signs that Ezekiel saw in his vision

Aquarius…the man

Taurus….the bull

Leo………..the lion

Scorpio….the eagle

these signs correspond to vishnu..the preserver…the establisher

and the mutable signs where the old season is destroyed to make way for the new season…..this corresponds to shiva the destroyer

the four mutable signs are…pisces,gemini,virgo and sagittarius

pisces..the two fish….the end of the winter phase of the year…..remember mutable means “subject to change”

gemini…the twins “castor and pollux” the end of the spring phase

virgo….the destroyer/shiva/satan of the summer part of the year and the bringer of the harvest of the earths growth….hence again another reason why there is a link between virgo and saturn/old father time

old father time is pictured combing the hair of the weeping virgin

img_8722

http://gravelyspeaking.com/2011/12/27/father-time-and-the-weeping-virgin/

why is she weeping?

because the growth of the earths produce has come to an end……again another reason why there is a broken pillar in the picture above

and sagittarius……..the half man half horse (centaur) with either a bow or spear…the “horse and its rider” as sung about in the scriptures

and those cardinal,fixed and mutable signs are all “trinities” or three parts of each season

And even more……..each of the zodiac signs have three decans…again a trinity….one of the decans “announces” the sign

I spoke about three of them in my blog “something wonderful is about to happen”

the three decans of capricorn……the “something wonderful that was about to happen” was the birth of the new sun to start the next year off

the three decans of capricorn are sagitta (the arrow),aquila (the eagle) and delphinus (the dolphin/womb)

17sagitta
the three decans of capricorn in the night sky…sagitta..the arrow,aquila the eagle and delphinus….”the dolphin” or “womb”

again sagitta starts the sign of capricorn off….brahma…the starter/creator/cardinal

aquila is the middle of the sign of capricorn….firmly established/fixed….or in the hindu symbolism….vishnu

and delphinus (meaning womb or dolphin) corresponds to shiva the destroyer/mutable/satan/grim reaper/saturn/harvester

the decans of the other signs are

The 3 decans of Aquarius…..Piscis Australis (southern fish)/Pegasus (winged horse)/Cygnus(the swan)

3 decans of Pisces….The Band(the band)/Andromeda(woman in chains)/Cephus(the crowned king)

Aries…..Cassiopeia(the enthroned woman)/Cetus(the sea monster)/Perseus(the breaker)

Taurus….Orion(the glorious one)/Eridanus(the river)/Auriga(the shepherd)

Gemini…..Lepus(the hare)/Canis Major(the dog)/Canis Minor(the little dog)…….can you start to see some of the bible stories in those constellations?

for instance……Canis Minor……the little dog

Matthew 15:26

Jubilee Bible 2000
But he answered and said, It is not good to take the children’s bread and to cast it to the little dogs.

if you want some further reading on the decans throughout the gospels I would recommend

“The gospel and the zodiac” by the Rev.Bill Darlison

Cancer…..Ursa Minor(the little bear),Ursa Major(the great bear),Argo(the ship)

Leo…..Hydra(the serpent),Crater(the cup),Corvus(the raven)

Virgo….Coma(the desired),Centaurus(the centaur),Bootes(the coming one)

Libra….Crux(the cross),Lupus(the victim),Corona(the crown)…again….notice any of these constellations in the story of jesus and his crucifixion?

Scorpio……Serpens(the serpent),Ophiuchus(the serpent holder),Hercules(the mighty one)

And finally Sagittarius….Lyra(the harp),Ara(the burning pyre),Draco(the dragon)

In my blog “sex and religion” I endeavour to show that sex and religion are both connected to each other

And in the book “Sex and sex worship,phallic worship” written by O A Wall….the writer tells of the trinity of the phallus

the two testicles and penis acting as the one impregnating unit though composed of three separate and differently functioning parts

and again…Aleister Crowley pictured it in the devil card of the thoth tarot deck

The two testicles and the tip of the penis again make an upright triangle…the male triangle

the_devil
notice the female or feminine in the left testicle……dancing their way up the phallus…while on the right…the masculine or male…they are fighting and clawing their way to the top…lon milo duquette also says there are what might be representations of chromosomes in each testicle

karyotype

in James Ballantyne Hannays book “Sex symbolism in religion” he goes as far as to say the “three in one” of the trinity are the three parts of the male in the one part of the female during sexual intercourse

another interesting bible verse to consider is Proverbs 25:11

“Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.”

golden apples?….in a “silver basket?”

now if you’ve been following this blog from the beginning you will know that gold is the metal of the sun…..and the sun is male…he is the bridegroom who returns at the spring equinox to meet his bride,and the metal of the moon or the female just happens to be silver….and when the two come together you get the hieros gamos…..the holy marriage

tumblr_mhnjvd4iW91qlmnf4o1_500
NOTICE THE METAL OF THE SUN IS GOLD AND THE METAL OF THE MOON IS SILVER

Well…could the “apples of gold in a silver basket…or silver carvings” might be the sex act symbolized in the scriptures?

timely advice is lovely…just as the sex act is lovely

Most people do not know that a lot of our customs and practices are to do with the sex act whether it be throwing confetti and rice at a wedding…(the ejaculation of the penis)

popping a cork on a champagne bottle…..again…..the orgasm

dancing around a maypole…the maypole is the penis and there is usually a circle around it representing the vagina…again the sex act….just as Crowleys card above does

Maibaum_Ostfriesland967
notice the sex act the male “pole” inside the female “circle” and the “ejaculation” represented at the top this maypole in Germany…the sperm being the…ahem…maypole syrup

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

why mayday and the maypole?

well in the northern hemisphere may is the spring and spring is when the suns rays/sperm are really making things grow on the earth…..and the fertile earth is giving forth her growth….it is a time of happiness and plenty

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

may the first is also 40 days from the spring equinox…and again those 40 days are a time of rest/inaction/lent/jesus in the wilderness for forty days before he started his ministry/moses in the desert for forty years before they got to the promised land……before things start moving again….like a nap……maybe that is why we take “forty winks”…a nap before we get moving again

it is all allegory of above…and here below

the microcosm is a reflection of the macrocosm

or as the great Hermes Trismegistus said(and in line with this blog on the trinity…trismegistus means “thrice greatest”)

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” 

Hermes Trismegistus
