When the levee breaks

Hello peoples of the planet!

This blog will be discussing the worldwide legend of the mill and mill stone,and what it all means.

First though,as promised in the last blog,we will continue on with the connections between the weeping virgin (Venus/Isis) and old father time. (Saturn/Satan)

Taking a closer look at the bible account of the Feast of Tabernacles or Festival of Booths…..Sukkot.

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

This festival is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Tishri,which corresponds in our calendar to late September till late October. (see the wiki entry on Sukkot above)

Late September till late October belongs to one sign of the zodiac,that being the sign of Libra!

libra-zodiac-horoscope-dates-1

If you’ve been following along the last few blogs,you will know that the sign of Libra is ruled by Venus,and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

https://www.quora.com/What-planet-rules-Libra

That alone tells us there is the link between the two,Saturn/Satan (Old father time) and Venus/Isis (the weeping virgin) in Libra.

The word  Virgin “Almah” in the bible doesn’t necessarily mean a woman who has not had intercourse.

http://outreachjudaism.org/alma-virgin/

The word “Almah” can also mean maiden/young woman.

The “weeping” in the term “weeping virgin,” can also mean a menstruating woman/maiden.(symbolism contains many meanings.)

It also means the end of the harvest in the signs of Virgo/Libra,hence the broken pillar on the statue. (Virgo weeps for the Sun/Mars falling back into autumn and winter at Libra (crying for things past/crying for The Sun as he leaves his throne at the summer solstice,where he lost his head in the personification of John the Baptist) as Saturn (old father time/grim reaper) exalts or arrives on the scene himself.

If you know the story of Isis and Osiris,you will know that she cried over a broken pillar also,that pillar being the penis of her husband Osiris.

Isn’t it interesting that another name for the penis is the “member” and Isis re”members” Osiris in the story. (more in a later blog)

The bible talks about the weeping women at Ezekiel 8:14

“He brought me to the north gate of the Lord’s Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.”

Tammuz is the Sun at the summer solstice and those women are again crying over the suns declining strength,or the softening male member after it being at the most high. (erection)

godhead-6-biblical-911-33-638

However while the Sun/Mars is in his decline,Saturn is on the up and up as is the feminine part of the cycle….Saturn and the virgin/maiden are about to get together,and this is celebrated at the festival of booths.

BA21

The Hebrew name for the festival of booths is “Succoth Benoth” meaning “booths of daughters.” (or prostitutes.)

http://biblehub.com/topical/s/succoth-benoth.htm

Daughters/women in booths/prostitutes?

Could there be some sexual shenanigans going on here with Saturn and Venus?

Yes!

http://biblehub.com/commentaries/2_kings/17-30.htm

The word “Benoth”  in Succoth Benoth means “Venus.”

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=r_VSAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA402&lpg=PA402&dq=benoth+venus&source=bl&ots=tv3qe7Z0gl&sig=fWeWSHuN_2sWT_fQU_PLGJu7Lsw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjw7OGbqInOAhVIJcAKHSmRDTQQ6AEIJTAB#v=onepage&q=benoth%20venus&f=false

Now we have the weeping virgin,what about old father time?

Well,the “Succoth” of Succoth Benoth is  connected with Saturn!

http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Succoth-benoth.html#.V5M_V6KHhdB

(Interestingly,the booth or box shape is also connected to Saturn..see the cube of space in earlier blogs.)

James Ballantyne Hannay in his book “sex symbolism in religion” tells us that all nations round about were invited to the big one,the party of the year…sexy time!

Zechariah 14:16

“Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.”

The festival of booths was a sex festival in the sign of Libra,where Saturn and Venus are together,just as the account in Genesis talks of the tree of Knowledge,the apple and the fall.

The bible story has Saturn/Satan/Serpent/Snake enticing Eve/Venus to come and eat of the fruit! (sexual act).

It was the ancient Jewish version of a sexual free for all commune for a week.

It’s following nature and the zodiac cycle,it’s not good or bad….we only perceive them to be so from our viewpoint/indoctrination.

In Aries (spring equinox) the Lamb/Sun comes to meet his chaste bride/full moon dressed in white (for the 6 months of light)….however at the autumnal equinox,she turns into sexy Venus and becomes frisky Babylon the Great (for 6 months of darkness) until God puts a stop to her shenanigans and brings the balance back again.

The zodiac helps all of the riddles in the bible to unravel and…ahem…expose themselves!

The colour of Venus is green in alchemy….and with all that said….it sounds like it was a bit of a sukkot sizzler back then!

sukkotsizzle_65
Notice the girl in green (Venus) is holding the four species,the lemony looking thing is called an etrog,representing the feminine principle/breast/womb and the lulav in her left hand consisting of three items the lulav,hadass and aravah which represent the two testicles and erect penis,it is the opposite ritual from the spring equinox which is the pure and holy marriage…this festival is of anything goes. The virgin becomes the harlot in autumn time of the cycle…Babylon the Great in revelations the mother of all harlots.

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

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=3zPv2auAVAYC&pg=PA150&lpg=PA150&dq=lulav-and-etrog+penis&source=bl&ots=Ychax6YrvH&sig=8itSYOUVmSAjXwVJrjI1eQrnyhI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwij_PbS-JPOAhVKIMAKHcJSA5QQ6AEIMzAE#v=onepage&q=lulav-and-etrog%20penis&f=false

Notice in the song above,they sing about shaking the lulav in six directions and then back to the centre…..see the blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on that.

Remember this,it’s only offensive to our sensibilities nowadays because of our indoctrination from birth,just as to a Mormon….drinking coffee or tea is a no no!

To a JW taking a blood transfusion is wrong!

Drinking alcohol in Saudi Arabia can get you flogged and off to prison.

Scientologists will never go near a psychiatrist.

Humans are so programmable!

Before this blog gets underway,I would also like to further expose the deceitful leaders of the JW’s,who call themselves the “Governing body.”

They’re not the biblical “faithful and discreet slave”,they’re very naughty boys!

(although not naughty in the sexual way above,more like naughty liars,deceiving their duped adherents….who receive a different type of shafting than at Succoth Benoth)

Look at the poor kids in this Awake magazine.

The Watchtower society proudly proclaim that all of the kids died “putting God first.”

may26-94-aw
This is but a fraction of JW’s who have died since the Watchtower society banned blood in 1945.

However this video shows in under 2 minutes the hypocrisy/flip flops and lies going on in the organization,this time regarding their blood policy.

Thanks goes to Cappy for the video!

In 1994 the Awake magazine said this.

“In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue.” Awake! 1994 May 22 p.2

Then four years later they say this!

Watchtower December 1st 1998 page 14 in the article “Defending our faith.”

“Jehovah’s witnesses have been targets of false accusations-bare faced lies and twisted presentations of their beliefs…The accusation that numerous children of Jehovah’s witnesses die as a result of refusing blood transfusions is totally unfounded.”

So there you have it,on one hand they are parading the fact that children are dying bravely for their stand against taking blood,and then four years later say that the accusation that numerous children die from not taking blood is “unfounded.”

Think of the poor people stuck in there,most ,but not all,blind to their organizations flip flopping and the fact that people are losing their life for a lie.

Yet the very book they claim to follow says this….

Matthew 12:7 “However, if YOU had understood what this means, ‘I want mercy, and not sacrifice,’ YOU would not have condemned the guiltless ones.”

Let’s get going on this blog.

The strong giant, Samson. Macmillan poster. Original poster for sale for £50 including VAT and postage within the UK. Image not available for licensing.

 

Samson (Mars/the Sun) is betrayed by Delilah the cunning/dark/female/eve/enchantress/the sinister/left-handed/siren/Venus calling him to the rocks of his doom and he eventually ends up down at Gaza (the goat) Capricorn…the midnight of the year.

The winter solstice is a time of merriment and parties (Christmas and New Year)….and on cue,there is a party going on at Gaza and Samson is taking centre stage.

Judges 16:23,24

“Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, “Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands.”While they were in high spirits, they shouted, “Bring out Samson to entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he performed for them. When they stood him among the pillars.”

And verses 29,30.

“Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other. Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.”

Samson literally brings the house down on all!

This is the midnight of the year,when the old day gives way to the new.The old year dies and the new one is born a babe…a cycle has completed,the snake has eaten its tail.

This gives us a glimpse into the workings of the cycle,when the cycle ends it is usually party time,people are too distracted partying to notice that the house is about to collapse on them,they cannot see the writing on the wall,Belshazzar did not take note at his party also.

There was another strange activity happening with Samson before his death at verse 21.

“Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison.”

Samson grinds grain in prison as shown in this painting.

This grinding mill motif is seen in myths worldwide.

In the introduction of the book Hamlet’s Mill it says this about a particular mill that ground out three things.

Amlodhi (HAMLET) was identified, in the crude and vivid imagery of the Norse, by the ownership of a fabled mill which, in his own time, ground out peace and plenty. Later, in decaying times, it ground out salt; and now finally, having landed at the bottom of the sea, it is grinding rock and sand, creating a vast whirlpool, the Maelstrom (i.e., the grinding stream, from the verb mala, “to grind”), which is supposed to be a way to the land of the dead. This imagery stands, as the evidence develops, for an astronomical process, the secular shifting of the sun through the signs of the zodiac which determines world-ages, each numbering thousands of years. Each age brings a World Era, a Twilight of the Gods. Great structures collapse; pillars topple which supported the great fabric; floods and cataclysms herald the shaping of a new world.

The image of the mill and its owner yielded elsewhere to more sophisticated ones, more adherent to celestial events. In Plato’s powerful mind, the figure stood out as the Craftsman God, the Demi­urge, who shaped the heavens; but even Plato did not escape the idea he had inherited, of catastrophes and the periodic rebuilding of the world.

Tradition will show that the measures of a new world had to be procured from the depths of the celestial ocean and tuned with the measures from above, dictated by the “Seven Sages,” as they are often cryptically mentioned in India and elsewhere. They turn out to be the Seven Stars of Ursa, which are normative in all cosmological alignments on the starry sphere. These dominant stars of the Far North are peculiarly but systematically linked with those which are considered the operative powers of the cosmos, that is, the planets as they move in different placements and configurations along the zodiac. The ancient Pythagoreans, in their conventional language, called the two Bears the Hands of Rhea (the Lady of Turning Heaven), and called the planets the Hounds of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld. Far away to the south, the mysterious ship Argo with its Pilot star held the depths of the past; and the Galaxy was the Bridge out of Time. These notions appear to have been common doctrine in the age before history-all over the belt of high civilizations around our globe. They also seem to have been born of the great intellectual and technological revolution of the late Neolithic period.

Every cycle has a part of it where the old mill wheel falls off as it moves from age to age and the whole house comes crashing down.

The first wheel grinds out plenty.

The next wheel grinds out salt.

The last wheel is thrown into the sea where it causes a maelstrom.(Maelstrom literally meaning “mill stream.”)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlpool#Etymology

potc-maelstrom_6852

Strangely the book of revelation talks about a great millstone also.

Rev 18: 21

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

It is the millstone that comes crashing down,causing a maelstrom that brings down the world structure of Babylon,(the feminine force in nature that has sold herself/prostituted/contracted herself out to her lovers),rather than the pure woman who holds the child lovingly in her arms.

Remember Babylon the great sits by many waters…not a good place to be when the swirling mill stone is thrown into them.

Again it’s not evil,just the contrasting force to the perceived (at our level) good feminine force.

Nature out of balance! (Koyaanisqatsi) and natures own way of bringing the balance back…everything has it’s tides!

Her lovers have also come to their doom,at cosmic and other levels.Adam and Eve are again collapsed and what was Malkuth becomes Keter.

The searched for kingdom now becomes the new crown (Malkuth means kingdom and Keter means crown).

(Seek first the kingdom,then you shall receive your crown and become Kings and Priests)

Adam and Eve are the two pillars on the tree of life which are collapsed for the new Adam and Eve (male and female polarities) to take their place,as they go to the new tree of life.

Anybody that watched the film “Knowing” (gnosis) will understand that is what the ending is showing.

The older order is collapsed and the new polarities go to the new Eden.

This is what Aleister Crowley means when he says this.

“By a flick of the wrist, she can be transmuted to appear as the original Yod, and repeat the whole process from the beginning.”

Notice he says this at the bottom of the page.

The fool tarot card in the Thoth deck has the fool coming out from the 3 swirls. (the final “Heh” swirl becomes the new kingdom in his heart.

Fool
The three large swirls are the swirls caused by the three “mill stones” of the age which gives birth to him. The fool is the new child born to us,the same child as held in the arms of the woman with the twelve stars in revelation…foolish/childlike,yet full of vigour as the new dawn has arrived.

This legend of the mill/potters wheel is told throughout the world (Also think of Judas buried in the potters field)

Let’s have a look at some of the legends.

Notice again the three mills…wealth,salt and maelstrom.

The Mill of Wealth

King Fróði of Denmark is renowned for his peace and his wealth. He buys two strong slave girls Fenja and Menja from Sweden. The quernstones that are to form Grotti are found in Denmark and are given to Fróði by a man with a giant’s name (Hengikjøptr) (SnE). In Grs 10–12 Fenja and Menja claim to have discovered these millstones long ago. They caused earthquakes when they dislodged the stones from the earth. Grotti would produce whatever the grinder bade. No one but Fenja and Menja was strong enough to turn it.

Odense Braun (1)

Fróði made the giantesses grind gold, peace and prosperity. He granted them almost no rest. They sang Grottasøngr as they worked. Furious at Fróði’s cruelty to them they ground out an army, and a sea-king Mýsingr came and slew Fróði (SnE); in Grs there is merely a foretelling of Fróði’s overthrow. The quern breaks, and the milling must stop (Grs). The end of Fróði’s reign is marked by thunderings and lightnings, earthquakes, the disappearance of the sun, and the upsetting of prognostications.  Thus Fróði’s peace came to an end.

The Salt Mill
Mýsingr takes Grotti, Fenja and Menja. He bids them grind salt. They grind until the excess of salt sinks the ship. This causes the sea’s saltiness.

The Whirlpool Mill
There is now a whirlpool where the sea fell into the eye of the quern. Comparable are traditions about the Mælström, which was regarded as a ‘grinder of ships’, if not a mill.
Of the three motifs, the poem contains only the first; the salt mill and the whirlpool mill may be later additions of common folk tales to the myth. However, the poem focuses on the demise of Frodi after the cracking of the stone, and may have excluded these elements deliberately.
The final whirlpool mill grinding the ships is alluded to in the book of revelation.

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
    where all who had ships on the sea
    became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

These three whirlpool/millstones/rotating forces are those represented by the 3 swirling forces at Newgrange.

9bd19f4b3fdb9ad916651355e0a4d43aKether or “the new treetop in the next tree of life” is brought about by the three rings/millstones.

Kether is the new “fool” who comes out of the darkness/womb of the three feminine forces.

Remember the feminine part of the year is ruled by Saturn (hence the dark Satanic mills of Blake) and in the darkest part of the daily/yearly/great yearly cycle the new day arrives,(although not dawn). This dark time when the sun is present but not yet active is the parousia…it is alongside us but not yet in power.

These three dark satanic mills give birth to the New Jerusalem/the new child!

“And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_did_those_feet_in_ancient_time#.22Dark_Satanic_Mills.22

Read through the wiki page above and notice that Blake is alluding to more than just the mills of England’s industrial age.

Particularly this passage.

“An alternative theory is that Blake is referring to a mystical concept within his own mythology related to the ancient history of England. Satan’s “mills” are referred to repeatedly in the main poem, and are first described in words which suggest neither industrialism nor ancient megaliths, but rather something more abstract: “the starry Mills of Satan/ Are built beneath the earth and waters of the Mundane Shell…To Mortals thy Mills seem everything, and the Harrow of Shaddai / A scheme of human conduct invisible and incomprehensible”.

Milton_a_Poem,_copy_C,_object_4_(Bentley_4,_Erdman_6,_Keynes_4)_detail-a

Do you grasp what Blake is saying?He is referring to these three sisters/forces…Ain/Ain Soph/Ain Soph Aur…in the stars they are grinding out plenty,on the earth grinding out salt (the salt of the earth) and finally the maelstrom of the sea mill,which grinds out the old and births the new!

Jesus uses the imagery of the millstone being thrown into the sea also at Matthew 18:6

“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Old father time/Saturn/Satan the ruler of this world,is the one in the wheels within wheels……Saturn truly is the Lord Of The Rings!

Shaddai is Saturn/Satan the shady one…the shadow,who gives the gift of light to all mankind at the winter solstice in the form of Santa giving us the gift of the new Messiah…Jesus at Christmas,the darkest time of the year. Ho Ho Ho!

If any of this makes any sense to you,please,will you explain it to me!….he he!

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.

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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purim#Modern_scholarly_view

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

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.

Tarot Rota Torah!

10-wheel-of-fortune-tarot-cardThere are 22 tarot cards in the “major arcana.”

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

There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrew_alphabet#General

And….there are 22 paths in the tree of life in kabbalah!

https://cosmicnavigator.com/apps/the-22-paths-of-the-tree-of-life

Hopefully this blog will show the relationship between them all….

Because they are all related!

The Sepher Yetzirah states this :-

Twenty-two are the Letters, the Foundation of all things; there are Three Mothers, Seven Double and Twelve Simple letters.”

Chapter 1 vs 2.

Did you notice how the 22  break down into…3…..7 and 12?

The numbers 3..7 and 12 are everywhere in the bible pages!

In fact these numbers are impressed in the cosmos,through the divine trinity…the number 3.

Also the 7 classical planets,and the 12 signs of the zodiac.

Here’s something to consider before we get going though.Isn’t pi…22 over 7?

(Those numbers again).

Also this blog will attempt to show the comparisons between the Tarot,the Torah.(the Hebrew scriptures written with 22 letters). And the rota (zodiac).

Have another look at the “Wheel of fortune” tarot card above (from the Rider Waite deck).

First off,do you notice the 8 spokes in the wheel?

Here’s another picture illustrating the same symbol.

585px-Wheel_of_the_Year.svg

There is also the Union Jack!

The “Union  Jack” is actually the union between the fixed and cardinal points of the zodiac!

These are the 4 “cardinal” points in the suns journey through the year.

Yule…Winter Solstice.

Ostara….Spring Equinox.

Midsummer…Summer Solstice.

And Mabon…Autumn Equinox.

Those were the four cardinal points!

However,there are also the four “Cross Quarter Days.” Or four “fixed” points.

Imbolc -2nd February,also known as “Candlemas” or “Groundhog Day.”

It’s also known as “The presentation of Jesus at the temple” 40 days after his birth at the Winter Solstice.

Then we have Beltane-May 1st,which is also known as “Mayday” or “Walpurgisnacht.”

Then next on the wheel,we have “Lughnasadh,”on August 1st,known as “Loaf Mass Day.”

And probably the most well known of them all,represented by the pumpkin below.

pumpkin

“Samhain”….also known as “Halloween” on October 31st.

These are the representative days for the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac,they also stand for YHVH…..The lion,bull,eagle….and man.

The lion is “Lughnasadh”….in the sign of Leo.

The bull is “Beltane”……in the sign of Taurus.

The eagle is “Samhain”…in the sign of Scorpio.

The man is “Imbolc”…in the sign of Aquarius.

Once you get the gist of what I’m sharing.”YOU” will start to see the patterns for yourself!

Also did you notice,again,the 4 living creatures seen by Ezekiel and John of the book of revelation,and seen on the tarot card above.

Can you see the bull,lion,man and eagle on the 4 corners of the card?

These represent respectively the 4 elements.(Earth,Fire,Air and Water).

Those who may be familiar with Hebrew,will notice the Tetragrammaton on the wheel.Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh.(Yahweh,or Jehovah)

The 4 living creatures and the four letters,are representing the same concepts.

YHVH is a formula for the 4 elements,which can also be represented by the 4 living creatures….remember the “Lamassu” from the second blog entry?

The letter “Yod” represents Fire.

The first “Heh” represents Water.

“Vav” represents Air.

The final “Heh” represents Earth.

Do you notice the words Taro,Rota and Tora on the wheel in the tarot card?

Taro is the Tarot.

Tora is the Torah

And Rota is the circle of the zodiac.But why are they all mentioned together?

It’s because they are all connected!

As these blogs continue,you should start to see a pattern emerging.What pattern?

You should be starting to see some correspondences between the bible/tarot/alchemy and the zodiac…In fact they are all related,all talking about the same concepts,from differing angles.

For example,the more observant among you will have noticed that in my blog “the hidden knowledge” I made this statement concerning the 5th element.

“Here’s a hint,its the Hebrew letter “Shin” that inserts itself into the tetragrammaton”

The Hebrew letter “Shin” is the 21st letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

shin1305359571743
SHIN

Then in my blog “Saturn- Lord of the Rings” I posted a photo of a Jewish man with a “tefillin” on his head with a Hebrew letter displayed on it……what letter would that be?

PhotoELF Edits:2010:01:23 --- Saved as: 24-Bit 100% JPEG YUV444 --- cropAgain it’s the letter “Shin”….why?

The “tetragrammaton” or “4 letters,”are the 4 elements….as stated before.

Fire,water,air and earth….or respectively Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh.

However kabbalah tells us that shin is the holy spirit…….the 5th element.

and when you insert the letter shin into the tetragrammaton…you get the “pentagrammaton.”

It turns the name “Jehovah” into “Joshua” or “Jesus.”

However it means so much more.

It is the reason why Leonardo da Vinci painted the “Vitruvian man.” Turning the 4 into 5.

The tetragrammaton into the pentagrammaton.

leonardo

Here’s one of the occult/hidden secrets ….”It’s all about sex!”

“Shin” on one level is sperm/semen.This is the “holy spirit” from the father/pater/pattern that animates matter,it fertilizes the egg of the mother/mater/matter or the brings to life the 4 elements with the 5th element,spirit…this is the holy spirit that impregnates Mary in the bible.

The “holy spirit” is sperm and “Mary” represents “matter.”

However if the letter shin represents sperm,why is the letter shin on the above pictured man’s head?

Because it also represents the holy spirit that enlightens us and gives us a rebirth in our thinking……sperm brings about births,as do our higher thoughts bring about births and ideas.

Ponder also on this.It is the same reason why ancient Jewish kings in the bible were anointed with “oil” on their head.And not only in the Jewish culture,but in many cultures worldwide.

In fact the word “anoint” means to “smear with oil.” What “oil?”

The word Christ also means “oil.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ#Etymology_and_origins

And “Messiah” means oil.

Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were also anointed with oil.

The “oil” stands for  “illumination.” To be “born again” is having an inner enlightenment…a rebirth in your whole way of thinking and perceiving.

1280px-Shravanbelgola_Gomateshvara_head_white

Just as the sun brings birth to the new year,the anointing oil brings birth to us!

Are things “dawning” on you yet?

This is why people from different cultures have dots….boxes…snakes on the front of their head.

Amenhotep_II_Uraeusshilpa_s

We see it in such places as China,Korea,India and Israel!

http://www.thescienceforum.com/pseudoscience/21915-major-religions-forehead.html

The Catholic Church uses ash to mark the forehead on Ash Wednesday.

080206-N-7869M-057 Atlantic Ocean (Feb. 6, 2008) Electronics Technician 3rd Class Leila Tardieu receives the sacramental ashes during an Ash Wednesday celebration aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1).  U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Brian May (Released)

“Wednesday” is the day of “Mercury,known as”Mercredi” in French.Mercury is the messenger of the gods.

Mercury is also the holy spirit,which in turn is the messenger of the gods.Mercury is also called “Quicksilver.”

Why are there correspondences with the forehead being marked in all the cultures?

The “Sepher Yetzirah” tells us that the letter shin is “king over fire.” The holy spirit rules over fire.

Remember at Pentecost the 120 in the upper room had flames above their heads?

fire-at-pentecost
Notice the flame looks like the Hebrew letter “yod”…which represents fire.

(Because they had oil in their lamps).

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=sepher+yetzirah+tells+us+that+the+letter+shin+is+king+over+fire&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=rcs&gfe_rd=cr&ei=NGnPU-2RMcfH8geImIDYCA

“Shin” is the king over fire……the letter shin represents illumination,the spark that starts the fire.

Illumination is the eureka moment,when it finally hits you,you get it!

The catholic church calls this oil chrism.

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

The orgasm is another eureka moment,but on a different (lower) level/plane.

It’s not crude or distasteful,its nature……..sex is the microcosm of what happens in the macrocosm.

The penis of the man corresponds to the sun,when it rises…….it brings life to the earth/woman/feminine element of nature.

This is why Aleister Crowley’s tarot deck pictures the fool card with the sun covering his penis.It’s not crude…its nature!

thoth

The spermatozoon are the rays of the sun that fecundate the earth,matter…or the mater/mother……she represents the earth.

“Mother” comes from “mudder.”Mud is made from earth and water..the feminine elements.

Earth and Water are the female elements.

Fire and Air are the male elements.

“As above so below.”

From the macrocosm to the microcosm!

This understanding is also why you see obelisks everywhere from the Vatican to the Washington monument to Cleopatras needle in London.

obelisk1

The obelisk is a representation of the erect penis,and also a ray of the sun.

The two perform the same function on a different level/plane.

The obelisk is a representation of the masculine…the life giving force in nature.

As above….So below!

Look at the obelisk at the Vatican,again,this time from above.

vatican_solar_wheel
Do you also notice the pattern of the “Union Jack” at the Vatican?

Notice again the 8 spoke wheel you saw in the tarot card above?They represent the cardinal and fixed signs,and the obelisk/penis/sun ray in the middle of the circle?

Remember Ezekiel saw God in the middle of the wheels within wheels?

Are you starting to see the connections?

It’s the way nature gets things done.This process is what is being described in all of the occult/mystical/esoteric teachings and the scriptures.

Telling us the deep things of nature.

Back to the torah/tarot/rota

We are told the Torah was written by Moses.(Hermes/Thoth/Mercury,the scribe of the Gods).

Moses is Mercury….the scribe of God.

Why would I say that Moses is Mercury?

Let’s look at some Mercurial symbolism hidden in the bible

Mercury is the messenger of the gods

Moses was the messenger of God was he not?

Those that read the bible and understand even a bit of astrology,will also see some Mercurial motifs surrounding Moses.Serpents on a pole for instance

http://biblehub.com/numbers/21-8.htm

“The LORD said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.””

A serpent on a pole?

Isn’t that the caduceus?

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

who carried the caduceus?….mercury

Hermes/mercury/thoth/moses
MERCURY CARRYING THE CADUCEUS

Serpents on a pole to this day represent the sign of medicine/healing.

The God Mercury is also the great magician,just as Moses was a great magician.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermes_Trismegistus#Origin_and_identity

Moses threw his staff or pole down and it turned into a snake,all Mercury symbolism.

In what mountain was Moses buried?

Mount Nebo,and Nebo is the Babylonian Mercury/Thoth/Hermes.

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

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

And for you bible readers …….you will also notice that the name (nebu)chadnezzar comes from the planet Mercury.

Remember in my blog “Aries and the spring equinox,Moses had two horns?

They were attributed to the lamb,the lamb represents Aries.

However the horns are also connected to one of the 7 planets…..Mercury…why?

Look at the alchemical symbols for the planets and elements in the table below.

The three alchemical principles of sulphur,salt and mercury will be expanded on in a later blog.

tumblr_mhnjvd4iW91qlmnf4o1_500

Can you see the glyph for mercury?Mercury has “horns” also.

Sperm is mercury,or quicksilver,the quicksilver that brings the message of the Gods,and brings the ovum in the woman/darkness/winter to life.

Mercury is also the psychopomp,the guide of the dead….to bring them back to life in the next world.

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

The Israelites were “dead” in Egypt.They were slaves to anothers will (Pharaoh).

However,Moses (Mercury) was about to bring them out of that death/slavery/captivity.

He was going to bring them back to life….to free them!

Can you grasp the sexual symbolism as Moses places his “Staff” on the “Red Sea” and it parts,to let all the thousands of sperm/oops I mean Israelites cross over toward the promised land….but as you know,all of the sperm die off as they make the journey to the ovum.

Joshua/the old testament name for Jesus brings about the new life in the promised land.

You may notice that is the same function performed by the sun.

Freeing the earth from darkness every day/year.

The darkness can be personified as Pharaoh,Herod and Satan and a thousand other names.

Sperm is the life giver,fertilizing the mater/mother/matter in the darkness of the womb.

Back now to “Torah Tarot Rota”

The 22 Hebrew letters with which the Torah was formed.

The 22 tarot cards of the major arcana.

The 22 paths of the tree of life in Kabbalah.

Are all the same thing!

The Sepher Yetzirah tells us the 22 letters of the torah are broken down into the following.

3 “mother letters” which correspond to the three elements….where is earth?….(leave that to another blog)

The three mother letters are

Aleph…air.

Mem…water.

Shin…fire.

7 double letters which correspond to the 7 planets

Beth…Mercury.

Daleth…Venus.

Kaph…Jupiter.

Peh…Mars.

Gimel…Moon.

Resh..Sun.

Tau…Saturn.

And 12 simple letters that correspond to the zodiac signs.

Heh…Aries.

Vau…Taurus.

Zain…Gemini.

Cheth…Cancer.

Teth…Leo.

Yod…Virgo.

Lamed…Libra.

Nun…Scorpio.

Samekh…Sagittarius.

Ayin…Capricorn.

Tzaddi…Aquarius.

Qoph…Pisces.

We have the 3 mother letters,7 double letters and 12 simple letters.

The 3 mother letters correspond to the trinity that theologians speak of.

Here’s another correspondence between Christianity and Hinduism.

The 3 are also Brahma,Vishnu and Shiva.

Brahma is the creator,Vishnu is the preserver and Shiva is the destroyer.

The three types of zodiac signs correspond also,a cardinal sign is the creator of the season.A cardinal sign is the Brahma and Aleph.

A fixed sign is the preserver of the season.The fixed signs link to Vishnu and Mem.(Vishnu the preserver is also Noah of the bible,who was the preserver.”Mem” means water,Noah saved/guided(psychopomp) the animals through the water.

A mutable sign is the destroyer of the season,corresponding to Shiva/Shin.

Shin is fire,Shin means tooth,although the letter looks like three teeth/or a trident. (trident means 3 teeth).

https://gnosticteachings.org/courses/alphabet-of-kabbalah/759-shin.html

Shin is the destroyer with his trident,and now you know why the devil also has a trident and linked with fire,it’s the letter Shin.

shindevil

 

Doesn’t the bible say that the old world was destroyed by water?

Noah/Vishnu/Mem.

And next time it will be destroyed by fire?

The letter shin/the element fire/Shiva the destroyer.

The 7 double letters are the 7 planets.

All of the 7’s in the bible are due to the seven planets.

Why double letters?……(here’s another hint…they have a hard and soft sound)

http://www.psyche.com/psyche/qbl/7doubles_semantic_structure.html

That is why you can have 7 virtues/7 vices.

seven-deadly-sins-virtues

These are the seven planets,for instance,take the first one…lust and chastity.

We know Venus is the Goddess of love and Beauty,but the word “venereal” comes from Venus.

These seven forces can be used for good and bad purposes.

In chemistry these seven planets can form the alkalis and acids.

The 7 planets are also called the Elohim.

The 12 simple letters are the 12 signs of the zodiac/12 tribes of Israel/12 disciples of Jesus/12 stones in the circle at Gilgal/12 knights of the round table.

They are all connected/the tarot/bible/planets/zodiac/kabbalah/myths/religions.

As spoken of earlier,you can see them in other religions

lets connect again the number 3

In Hinduism we have Brahma/Hebrew letter “Aleph”/In the Zodiac we have Cardinal.

Brahma represents the cardinal signs,and just like cardinal signs open up the season Brahma opens up the life cycle/Aleph opens up the Hebrew alphabet.

In Hinduism we have Vishnu/Hebrew letter “Mem”/Zodiac fixed signs.

Vishnu the preserver corresponds to the fixed signs/the 4 letters YHVH…they are established/preserved/fixed/Mem is fixed in the middle of the Hebrew alphabet.

In Hinduism we have Shiva/the destroyer/Hebrew letter Shin(21st letter in the Hebrew alphabet 3×7 triple octave)before the letter Tau which ends the alphabet.The letter Tau is the mark to be placed on the foreheads of all those sighing and moaning at the end of the age.

Notice the appearance of Mercury again in the verse below….Mercury is the man with the “writing case”/the psychopomp.

Ezekiel 9:4-6

Then the LORD called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side
“Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion.Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple.

As said previously,there are 22 cards in the major arcana of the tarot,however in the full tarot deck there are 78 cards…why 78?…..again it is linked to the 12 signs of the zodiac.

If you add 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12 (the twelve signs) you get 78,the number of the tarot cards.

The zodiac/bible/tarot/Hebrew alphabet all link…because they are all talking about the same thing!

Tarot/rota/Torah……..however there is one other word on the card….”Ator”….we will be meeting Ator/Hathor/the mistress of the west in other blogs!

Just as Mercury guides people to the afterlife….Hathor welcomes them in.

The Hidden Knowledge

Mark 4:22

“For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”

Continued on from my first blog here..

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/the-bible-and-the-zodiac/

So………Ezekiel and John saw the 4 living creatures,also known in Christianity as “cherubim.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_creatures_%28Bible%29#Religious_views

They are as follows…

A Lion

Bull

Eagle

Man

Four_Living_Creatures

04200

Ezekiel also spoke about “wheels within wheels”….(we will come back to the “wheels” in a later blog)

However,it wasn’t only those two bible prophets who used these motifs/symbols.

The four creatures are also seen pictured in other cultures.

Consider the “lamassu” of the Assyrians.

Lammasu

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

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Lamassu&client=firefox-a&hs=Swg&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=rcs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=YMlzU9ruEK-p7Ab7_oGoDg&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1536&bih=733

Again the 4 living creatures appear.

The face of a man

Wings of an eagle

Body of lion and bull

The sphinx has the same features also,why would they all identify with the four?

Egyptian,Babylonian and Greek sphinxes all contain the 4 living creatures.

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

They are even called tetramorphs after these four features,”tetra” meaning “four.”

And once you realize what those 4 creatures represent,you will notice it in all religions in some form or other.

Yin/yang,lotus flower,swastika,the four 4 limbs of the cross,the 4 letters of the name of God. (Tetragrammaton)

3535751050_580b0fc99b_z
The four letters are,from right to left…yod,heh,vav,heh.

I will expand on the connections between all differing religions later in the blog.

We also see this “fourness” in nature. One example would be the 4 seasons.

Spring,summer,autumn and winter.

And we see it in us!

Let’s look at the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac.

Taurus the bull.

In the zodiac with its 12 signs,all of the signs represents one of the four elements.

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

The zodiac sign of Taurus also represents one of the classical elements.

It represents the element of “EARTH”

68701030c845c5919ca90f4001faf043http://www.astrology.com/article/elements-earth.html

Leo the lion represents the element of “FIRE”

588ce47de5a3af80f730d6cf40d0492b

http://www.astrology.com.tr/fire-signs.asp

The eagle of Scorpio represents the element of “WATER.”

http://www.astrology.com.tr/water-signs.asp

And the man of Aquarius represents the element of “AIR” (not water as you would think with the water jar).

http://www.astrology.com.tr/air-signs.asp

Important info folks! The four fixed signs of the zodiac represent the four elements.  (As do lots of other things as we will see).

The four elements,earth,air,fire and water are symbolized,and correspond to so many different things.

image-217

For instance the four letters of the tetragrammaton also correspond,each one to one of the four elements.

However,you may ask,what does that mean if anything?

This is what has been hidden from us for thousands of years by occult groups.The word “occult” meaning “hidden,” not evil.

These are the “secrets” kept by solemn oaths for thousands of years,now coming to light.

It’s a deep understanding of nature,how it works and recognition of the subtle forces at play.(which mostly goes unnoticed).

The 4 elements symbolized by the 4 living creatures,represent among other numerous things.

The 4 states of matter.

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

Solid

Liquid

Gas

Plasma

And isn’t it coincidental that the 4 states of matter correspond with the 4 elements.

Solid is the element of “earth.”

liquid corresponds to the element of “water.”

Gas corresponds of course to the element of “air.”

And plasma corresponds to the element of “fire.”

470px-Four_Fundamental_States_of_Matter

This was a form of ancient science!

The ancients recognized (in all cultures) this fourness,whether it was the four directions (north,south,east and west) and four seasons,four corners of the earth (more about that in a later blog). But they all had their symbols of the four.

Another example…the “lotus flower” is an eastern symbol of the four elements also.

Why a lotus flower?

Well…..a lotus flower has its roots in the EARTH.

it grows through WATER.

out into the AIR.

and looks toward the sun……FIRE. (Giving us the four elements again)

http://www.flowersociety.org/lotus-plant-study.htm#four

So in yet another culture,the symbol the lotus flower is a symbol of the four elements.

bxk16147_flor-de-lotus800
THE LOTUS FLOWER REPRESENTS THE FOUR ELEMENTS

Here’s something to ponder on though,the human spine is referred to as a lotus flower in occult literature

Why?

(Here’s a clue….a lotus flower starts in the earth!)

If you google for yourself the connection between esoteric information and this knowledge of the 4 elements,your search should supply you with enough information that this is well known to esoteric societies.

I would like to stress that I want you to look for yourself and verify that these are hidden teachings now coming to the light,with information now at our fingertips.

We can find out and link things in seconds which would have taken years in times past.

In previous times,if you could even read a book,finding another on a similar subject,would have been a difficult task.

Joining the dots would have been almost impossible.And to see the patterns in other cultures signifying the same concepts in their own particular manner,would be out of the reach of most.

However,we are now in the information age,that can help us grasp the patterns.And  once you recognize the patterns,you will start noticing these things everywhere.

There is also a “fourness” in things in nature,such as the four seasons,as mentioned before.

But let’s look a little closer at the four seasons.

Two of the seasons are male or projecting out.

These would be spring/summer,where growth happens on the earth.There is an abundance of light and warmth.The light rules the world during these two seasons.

And two female seasons are a “drawing in.” The Autumn and Winter are dark and cold.There is no growth,In fact things start falling apart,i.e the leaves fall from the trees.Darkness now has the upper hand,and rules over the light.

It’s like a breathing out in spring and summer.

Then a breathing in,in autumn/winter.

(And think now why people think the female brought the male to ruin in the Adam and Eve story and all should start to link).

So out of the four elements,two are male,and two are female!

Air and fire are male,and earth and water female.

What about chemistry? Well again it has the “fourness,” this time called “CHON”

1525044_CHON

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

The building blocks of life are carbon,hydrogen,oxygen and nitrogen.

Carbon corresponds to EARTH. (You dig up coal and diamonds (carbon) from the earth.)

Hydrogen is WATER. (hydrogen meaning “water generator”)

Oxygen corresponds to the element of AIR.

Nitrogen corresponds with FIRE.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/sta/sta25.htm

In the fourth section down,Manly Palmer Hall writes the following.

“The water element of the ancient philosophers has been metamorphosed into the hydrogen of modern science; the air has become oxygen; the fire, nitrogen; the earth, carbon.”

Untitled

The four fundamental forces of physics also contain two male forces and two female,as the four seasons and four states of matter do.

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

The four fundamental forces of physics are,strong nuclear force,weak nuclear force,electromagnetism and gravity.

Two are “male” forces and two are “female.”

Strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force are male or outward projecting forces,as are spring and summer in the year.

Gravity and electromagnetism are attracting forces,just like autumn and winter.

Strong nuclear force is the element of FIRE

Weak nuclear force is AIR

Gravity is EARTH

Electromagnetism is WATER

You even see the four in a deck of cards due to their occult background.

Spades and Clubs are phallic/male suits.

Hearts and Diamonds are female suits.

The swastika is a symbol of the four elements in motion….swirling and you see the swastika in loads of cultures worldwide.

main-qimg-6baad06d0448962346128f6ffed25edd

The 4 limbs of the cross represent the four elements also,and it all comes from the zodiac.

The four elements make the 4 directions on a compass…north,south,east and west

The yin/yang symbol has the four also.

yin-yang

Please take note that the white part has a small black dot inside it.And likewise the black part has a small white circle contained within it.

It’s the 4 again!

This also is the secret of the tetragrammaton(the four letters.)

Two of the letters are male.

“Yod” and “Vav” are both male and correspond to spring/summer,also strong and weak nuclear force,oxygen and nitrogen and fire and air.

The two “heh’s” are female,and equate to autumn/winter,electromagnetism/gravity,carbon/hydrogen and earth/water.

image25

This world is all about those forces…the male and female.

YY
notice there are two white and two black parts in the yin/yang? again it is the FOUR!

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

Magnets have a male and female side…the two poles or polarities.

In your electric plug there is a male and female wire…positive/negative.

In atoms,the proton is male and electron female.

In the interaction between positive and negative we see how nature gets things done.

(this is the real meaning of the Song of Solomon.It’s describing the male and female forces of nature,the active and passive,the positive and negative forces).

Light (positive) and darkness (negative) and the interplay between them in nature.

In freemasonry,it’s the symbol of the compass and square.

The compass represents the male and the square represents the female.

And when the two come together…things happen!

Generation happens,the sexual orgasm brings life to the barren “earth” of the female,the egg is fertilized and a new generation comes about through this most holy act….hence the letter “G” in the middle of the male and female.

1395079788201

Do you notice that the compass is like the active male on top and the square like the receptive/passive female in sexual union?

The positive and the negative,the day and the night,the light and the dark come together and sparks fly.

It’s nature and how it works.The ancients weren’t stupid,they understood these forces,and symbolized and pictured them in their own way,according to their own particular culture that is part of the 360 degree spectrum that exists throughout all the earth.

Secret societies have kept this knowledge hidden from the masses (or as they call them ……the profane.)

Not out of malice,because with knowledge comes responsibility.

The profane are those not in the know,they are outside the temple of knowledge.

Harry Potter calls such ones “muggles” but it is the same thing.

“Jews” are those in the know and “Gentiles” are those outside the temple in the courtyard…hence the “court of the gentiles.

(“Profane” means outside the temple)

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/profane

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Temple#Court_of_the_Gentiles

Hopefully this gives you a glimpse into what the four living creatures stand for.

Lion

Bull

Man

And Eagle!

Now you may understand why the 4 gospel writers are pictured as the above animals also.

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

Scroll down to “evangelists symbols” on the above page to confirm for yourself.

Matthew is the man

Mark is the lion

Luke is the bull

John is the eagle

Evangelists 2

It’s a form of ancient science.

The four elements!

There is also a fifth element though(isn’t that a film?)

But I’ll leave that for you to find out for yourself.

Here’s a hint though,its the letter “shin” that inserts itself into the tetragrammaton.

Its also the reason why Aleister Crowley said…”every man and woman is a …”STAR”

He was an occultist who knew the secret teachings,and he had lots of deep insights into this hidden knowledge.

1359061_f248

The four elements are also one of the secrets of the Vitruvian man moving from 4 points to the fifth.

Next time I’ll speak about why there are so many 12’s in the scriptures,and what they mean.

Thanks for reading folks!
