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!

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.

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).

c699184010a8afc12930fb498885e803

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.

hqdefault

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.

 

slide_16

 

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.

jupiter

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!

Please share if you find these blogs to be of any interest to you.

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

Thanks for reading

 

the eternal virgin

Blessed-Virgin-Mary-Regina-Angelorum

Matthew 1:23
“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

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

in christianity…..mary is called the eternal virgin……virgin mary

who or what is mary and why the eternal virgin?

in fact this eternal virgin is known by many….MANY names

lets see just a few

artemis….ephesus (turkey)

hecate…greece

minerva…rome

stygian proserpine….sicily

ceres…..interesting name…the word “cereal” comes from ceres…..more in the blog about that later

rhea….seen in the picture below with a lion……..here’s a wee question….why are goddesses and lions often seen together?

RheaLionA
notice the staff and circle…the male and female also symbolized by the sun and moon

here’s another virgin goddess with a lion below…una and the lion by briton riviere

una_and_lion
the lion represents the fiery male energy and una represents the female principle

according to the book “sex symbolism in religion” the lion represents the male fiery sexual energy…the phallus and testicles…and “una” means the “yoni”

as do the words iona…jonah…una…..uma…….and when you yawn…what shape does your mouth make?…its the circle again!…the yawni/yoni….all representing the female principle (the yoni)

for more info on this aspect of symbolism…an eye opening read is james ballantyne hannay’s book “sex symbolism in religion”

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=90VzHRzJm7sC&pg=PP5&lpg=PP5&dq=james+ballantyne+hannay+sex+symbolism+in+religion&source=bl&ots=QCj9syT7Nw&sig=Bh-5YyUzcrt5umKvTVntVht8qc8&hl=en&sa=X&ei=79xoVPaTEMGrgwSVr4OoBQ&ved=0CFcQ6AEwBw#v=onepage&q=james%20ballantyne%20hannay%20sex%20symbolism%20in%20religion&f=false

I used that book for most of the content of the blog…”sex and religion”

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/sex-and-religion-honi-soit-qui-mal-y-pense/

and we have the picture of diana and the lion by angelo van courten

The-Godess-Diana-with-a-Lion-by-Angelo-Von-Courten

again she holds the arrow….one reason being diana is the goddess of hunting….and also the arrow is a male sexual symbol…….that said….a symbol has many meanings and depths for those who dig for them

also….look at where the quiver is placed….the “container” for the arrows

and there is also an astrological meaning to this picture…..lets see what it means

diana is the goddess of the moon…right?

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

and the lion is a representation of the sun

well the height of the summer in the northern hemisphere happens to occur in two zodiac signs

cancer and leo….representing the moon and sun

why the moon and sun?

well……. wouldn’t you know….the only house of the zodiac that the moon/diana rules over is….cancer!

and the house of the sun is leo….the lion

Zodiac-signs-and-the-planets-they-re-ruled-by

notice all the other planets rule two houses in the zodiac

saturn rules capricorn and aquarius

mars rules aries and scorpio

mercury rules gemini and virgo

venus rules both taurus and libra

jupiter rules pisces and sagittarius

the moon and sun rule only one house each…and they are both at the height of summer…..right next to each other!

the moons colour is silver…feminine colour…silver is the metal of the moon

and the sun gold…masculine colour…gold is the metal of the sun

tumblr_mhnjvd4iW91qlmnf4o1_500
LOOK AT THE PLANETS AND METALS IN ALCHEMY THE MOONS METAL IS SILVER AND THE SUNS IS GOLD

 

cancer is also a water sign!

leo is a fire sign!

water is the female principle…and fire is the male principle!

it is the balance between the two polarities…male and female……again its another symbol like the yin/yang

or as harper collins the book publishers symbolise it

Harper-Collins-logo091112
fire and water….the male and female in balance….like the compass and square of freemasonry the male (fire/compass) on top of the female (water/square)

 

the male and female together at the height of summer/light/warmth/growth/happiness

the unicorn is also a representation of the moon…the white unicorn

http://www.allaboutunicorns.com/lion-and-unicorn.php

and again the lion is a representation of the sun…the golden mane being like the golden rays

so when shown in heraldry it is saying that the rulership is likened to the glorious summer in cancer and leo!

AND ISN’T IT INTERESTING THAT IT SAYS IN THE DARK BLUE RIBBON “HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE” ….IT IS TALKING ABOUT THE SEXUAL ACT HIDDEN IN SYMBOLISM

 

however… back to this blog and the next sign in the zodiac after cancer and leo….is virgo ……“the eternal virgin”

this “eternal virgin” is called the goddess of ten thousand appellations

the goddess isis was also called “the virgin of the world”

in the book “the secret teachings of all ages” it tells us of an inscription on a column at nysa in arabia

“I am Isis, Queen of this country. I was instructed by Mercury. No one can destroy the laws which I have established. I am the eldest daughter of Saturn, most ancient of the gods. I am the wife and sister of Osiris the King. I first made known to mortals the use of wheat. I am the mother of Orus the King. In my honor was the city of Bubaste built. Rejoice, O Egypt, rejoice, land that gave me birth!”

did you notice she was instructed by mercury?

and notice she also says this…….. “I first made known to mortals the use of wheat.”

and wouldn’t you know………..the zodiacal sign of virgo has this symbol

da_zodiac___virgo_by_yukimiyasawa-d38ffse
VIRGO WITH THE STALK OF WHEAT

 

notice the sign of virgo is a woman holding a stalk of wheat?

see the connection between “ceres” and “cereal?”

and isis says she taught mortals the use of wheat…coincidence?

wheat and cereals?

the planet mercury rules the house of virgo  (see the chart above)…and didn’t isis say she was taught by mercury?

look at the date above….august and september…..virgo is the time of harvest

she also mentions she is a daughter of saturn…….and a symbol of saturn is a sickle used for harvesting….so there is a connection to saturn

virgo is connected with harvesting plant life and the seed

saturn is connected with harvesting everything on this earth…flesh included…he is the “grim” reaper after all

virgo-harvest

caec6df830ee2987a52b112c2afb18e8
SATURN AND HIS SICKLE ACCOMPANIED BY AQUARIUS AND CAPRICORN

did you also notice the two houses of the zodiac which saturn rules over in the above picture?

aquarius and capricorn…the man with the water pitcher to the left and the goat to the right

however look at this link between saturn and virgo the virgin…and the broken column

we see saturn (old father time with his long white beard…and his sickle) combing the hair of the virgin..(virgo)..and virgo holding the wheat….this is harvest time

BrokenColumn1
notice the broken column?

 

virgin

http://www.freemasons-freemasonry.com/broken-column.html

why the broken column?……..well in virgo…the sun has passed its highest point and its rays are weakening…..summertime is almost over……or the erect phallus is no more…the virgin/matter/woman has harvested the seed/semen of the male…remember the sun and the penis rays/semen/seed…. bring life to matter/mater/mother/matrix/soil

the broken pillar is the loss of strength of the phallus/sun after giving it’s life force (sun-rays…penis-semen)

notice also the three steps in both pictures showing the relevance to the third degree of freemasonry

http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/masonic-third-degree.html

however……back to virgo

virgo is also known as the house of bread in the zodiac

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=tOkWBBbNC_4C&pg=PA18&lpg=PA18&dq=virgo+is+also+known+as+the+house+of+bread+in+the+zodiac&source=bl&ots=R5rJVToVyH&sig=DMEgs_xm59qpyduohpkwdE9x5PE&hl=en&sa=X&ei=YHmdVJOSOouxaZvOgvAP&ved=0CCAQ6AEwADgU#v=onepage&q=virgo%20is%20also%20known%20as%20the%20house%20of%20bread%20in%20the%20zodiac&f=false

did you know that bethlehem means…”house of bread?”

again virgo is tied to the harvest…the wheat….the bread…and also to the bible

for instance…….wasn’t jesus born in bethlehem…the house of bread?

at the winter solstice (christmas) when the new sun starts its yearly journey…. the sign of virgo can be seen in the sky

and isis is the dark soil (matter) which gives birth to the wheat every year when the sun impregnates her with his rays

and in anatomical astrology the sign of virgo is in the belly

640px-Anatomical_Man
NOTICE THE SIGN OF VIRGO (WOMAN IN BLUE) ON THE STOMACH

and wouldn’t you know…….when a woman is pregnant we sometimes say she has a bun in the oven

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/have+a+bun+in+the+oven

its the house of bread in the human body

and anyone who has played the game of “operation” will know all about the “bread basket”

s-l1000
just a coincidence that the bread basket is the stomach…ruled by virgo?

 

can you see the connection between isis and virgo?

and again……. she is also the virgin mary (and all the other goddesses)

because mary is isis……….nature……MOTHER nature

on the front of the temple of isis in the city of sais an inscription read

“I, Isis, am all that has been, that is or shall be; No mortal man hath ever me unveiled. The fruit which I have brought forth is the ‘SUN’.”

so jesus was born in bethlehem …the house of bread…and of a virgin…and if you’ve been reading my blogs you’ll have noticed the quote from thomas paine saying that the story of jesus is a parody of the sun

and wouldn’t you know…….isis says above……..”the fruit I have brought forth is the sun”…….jesus is a representation of that sun/light

isis is the darkness that produces the sun/light

 

FIAT LUX!

 

isis had a son named horus

and horus had an enemy….called seth…or set……..set is an old name for saturn/satan

http://www.egyptartsite.com/battle.html

and jesus is the son/sun of god…who has an enemy called satan/saturn…why?

because the are both allegories of the same thing…light and darkness!

seth and set are satan/saturn…..the darkness/cold/winter

horus is jesus…who is the son/sun of isis/mary/virgo…the eternal virgin

and jesus is the lamb of god……….the light returns to the world in aries

isis is also mary………mare…the sea……water……..virgin mare =pure water

you get the words “maritime” “marine” from “mare” the water

aren’t you born from the waters of your mother?…..she is isis/mary to you

didn’t her “ark” deliver you through the flood when her waters broke after 40 weeks?

http://www.babycentre.co.uk/40-weeks-pregnant

the “ark” is the female sexual organ…..the container that preserves life

as above so below

didn’t life on the land come from the sea?……. that is a representation of mary…..isis …the goddess

“virgin mare” is “pure water”

doesn’t all life require water?

that is why water and the moon is connected to isis……..doesn’t the moon affect the waters on this earth?

the moon affects the tides….the emotions are the watery part of our thinking….our opinions can be swayed like the movable waters by very clever manipulation from others

mary or isis or the matrix…….is all around you….it is nature

isishorus

notice the moon on her head….she is the divine feminine……..she is sophia…mary…..isis

she holds her breast out to feed the child…..showing the nourishing part of nature….mother earth feeds her children from her own breast

productive nature is the source of nutrition for plant…animal……and human life…..nourishing all things from herself

and hence that is also what the figure of virgo tells us by holding out the stalk of wheat

nature nourishes her children……virgo holding out the wheat shows she nourishes her children

she is sometimes black in colour….or wears a black robe symbolizing she has no light in herself

she only reflects the light from the sun.as does the moon..and the soil only starts giving of its fruit when the sun arrives to give it life

now with that in mind……you might get the allegory of jesus stopping the wasteful flow of blood from the woman

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

jesus the sun returns to bring back life to the earth

the black colour is also suggestive of death and decay…the darkness in matter

just like the woman was in a condition of death and decay before jesus arrived!

 

Wien_KHM_Isis_I_158
ISIS DRESSED IN BLACK

notice once more…the black robe………it is  yet another cultures representation of the black colour in the yin/yang sign……..yin is the female sign….the black/night/winter part of nature/unfruitful/unfulfilled until the return of the light!

notice also she stands on a square?

this is because she represents the four elements….earth…air….fire and water…..matter

she is matter and matter consists of those four elements that act as a foundation or platform from which things grow

it is the altar for change to occur

the sun is the fire and isis is the water (think of the lion and una pic above)….again the two forces of nature…..the positive and negative…male and female…….active and passive…the dueling dragons….the twin spiral in dna……yin and yang….romeo and juliet….the two serpents on the pole or staff of mercury..and on and on!

this is why you can see black madonnas all over the world in many cultures

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

all of those cultures weren’t copying one another!

the dark virgin concept/image/symbol comes from inside mans psyche and he projects it out into images and worship all over the world…..and the differences are because everybody sees things on the earth from a different point of view (point of you!)

nature/isis/mary is the invisible black soil which produces and sustains life…again… it nourishes all things by itself

the black colour also stands for decay and death…….by the processes of death and corruption isis/mary/nature/the queen of heaven…. gives life to a number of creatures of many kinds through periods of constant change

however…..mother nature can also be a bitch!

page 130 in the book “secret teachings of all ages” says this

“The statue of Isis was placed on a pedestal of dark stone ornamented with rams’ heads. Her feet trod upon a number of venomous reptiles. This indicates that Nature has power to free from acidity or saltness all corrosives and to overcome all impurities from terrestrial corruption adhering to bodies. The rams’ heads indicate that the most auspicious time for the generation of life is during the period when the sun passes through the sign of Aries.”

again…remember that the exalting sun in aries is the lamb of god who takes away the sins/impurities of the world as it says in the above passage

its like the old egg in the uterus being discarded and the new one arriving to start the new cycle in the womans body

notice the connection with aries and isis/virgo/mary

“so mary really did have a little lamb”….. virgo/mary gave birth to aries the lamb of god/jesus

Hellenistic Isis -  Incarnation of the Aeons - Books of Foundation - Peter Crawford
notice the rams horns at the bottom of the picture?

 

(and in the picture of “una and the lion” there is also a lamb in the picture…coincidence?)

notice the scales?……..isis/nature holds everything in balance

she steers the boat of life (also in her right hand)

notice the balance of the male and female…the sun and moon in her ears

on her breasts are the wheat and the grapes……which signify the bread and the wine now used in christianity…wheat=bread…….grapes=wine

they are on her breasts to show the bounty that she bestows on her children

notice now the connections to the catholic church…..mary and the bread and wine?

the eucharist or holy communion……

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

again in the above picture there is a snake eating its own tail right behind her head (ouroboros)

a snake sheds its skin so this is a symbol of the renewal of life…(and again its another reference to the connection of the virgin and saturn)……..this renewal takes place every year at the winter solstice ruled by saturn in capricorn

it is the birth of the sun on christmas day

and in the stalk of corn in virgo’s hand are the seeds of the new life to arrive next spring in the sign of aries

317ce570246ae95c231810d2ab61273a

do you see the connections?

back to the picture of isis though

in her left hand isis carries a sistrum

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

the sistrum is the yonic symbol of purity

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

and she carries a golden square in her left hand

again stands for the 4 elements earth/air/fire and water which she (nature/isis/mary/virgo/matter) regulates

isis scan 001
isis represents the four elements of matter

all things are transmuted and regenerated according to the harmony of the 4 elements in nature

isis also stands between two pillars……jachin and boaz in freemasonry……also mentioned in the bible in connection with solomons temple

1st kings 7:21

21 He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.

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

(they are also the two pillars on the tree of life in kabbalah…the pillar of severity and the pillar of mercy)

and also the tropic of cancer and tropic of capricorn!

the middle pillar on the kabbalah tree of life is the equator

and notice she is also represented by the high priestess card in tarot

RWS_Tarot_02_High_Priestess
see the J and B on the pillars? they are Jachin and Boaz of solomons temple and the pillar of mercy and severity on qabalah’s tree of life

can you see any correspondences with any of the pictures above?

notice the headwear….the moon?

the pomegranates are symbols of fertility with the red colour and seeds

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=pomegranates+are+symbols+of+fertility&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=rcs&gfe_rd=cr&ei=RwJpVJGbH8jH8gfox4GgDw

what about the flowing robe….don’t women have a flow every month?

what about the word menstruation?……the etymology of that word is connected to the moon

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=menstrual

do you think there could be a connection between the virgo/mother nature and the ram/lamb in another way?

what about the shape of the uterus compared to a rams head?

the womans monthly flow is like the flow of the tide……again connected to the moon (moonthly flow)

and remember that is why the full moon has to be there at easter waiting for her bridegroom……the sun…the male energy returning to bring about life to his waiting bride by impregnating her every year at the annual marriage feast of cana

when the woman is fertile she is likened to the full moon

its the bridegroom returning to awaken his bride with a kiss to start the new growth…it is the annunciation..the holy spirit overcoming (coming over) mary/matter

after the sun passes over (the passover) the threshold (equator/spring equinox) from the darkness of winter to the growth of the new year

again this is called the hieros gamos or sacred marriage

and dont husbands carry their wives over the threshold on the wedding night?

that is also the passover

(as above so below as in heaven also upon earth)

throwing confetti or rice at a wedding is a representation of the male orgasm and the husband removes the veil from his wife…(more sexual symbolism) and the connection to the apocalypse (uncovering) and revelation (revealing)…..removing the veil and the christ returning to marry his virginal bride) to impregnate the start of the new era/age…and the sexual symbolism keeps going on….because it all comes from fertility rites disguised as religion

and a similar thing happens every year when the sun orgasms his rays onto the earth/isis/mary to fertilize her

can you now see the imagery personified in the bible when the holy ghost overcomes mary and impregnates her with the new baby jesus

this is celebrated as the annunciation on march 25th

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

so she is impregnated on march 25th (spring equinox)………count nine months on and you come to december 25th…the birth of jesus…the sun/son of god

what do you think it means when the angel gabriel says “the holy spirit will come on you?”

luke 1:35 (new international version)

The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.

the holy spirit of the suns rays perform the same function as the ejaculating male member

and again……it’s not dirty or forbidden to speak about…….it’s only nature and the way it works….and the zodiac!

again if you think these blogs would be interesting to anyone you know…please share them

cheers…and thanks for reading!
