6-15-08 - DREAM - I was living in a big house.  I saw that my daughter-in-law Rebecca was in prison - laying in bed - on the other side of the street, so I got her out of prison and brought her home to live with me.

Rebecca (Gen. 24 - wife of Isaac) brought her bedding and blue bathrobe (Saints, and Angels are often depicted in blue robes) with her and laid it in a pile on the kitchen table. It all felt damp and I smelled it to make sure it wasn't moldy. 

I told her I would throw it into the dryer to make sure it was dry and smelled good.

She left to go talk to a friend. I looked on my desk and there was an invoice there for the repair of my car, (Vehan/hindu vehicle of Siva) which had to be paid.

I was told by a man who was standing there, that there was a box on it that had to be 'typed' in to fill it in.  I told him that was no problem but we both tried to pick it up at the same time and it was wet and it ripped in half.  (I think the man was Ken who used to be a Navy Seal)

NOTE: The boy's name Kenneth \k(e)-nne-th\ is pronounced KEN-eth. It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "fire born; good-looking".   Ken also means: knowledge, understanding, or cognizance, mental perception: an idea behond one's ken.  Or  range of sight or vision.

I told him that was okay because both halves had matching numbers on them and I could still type on my part as soon as it dried.

 I went to the store to buy something and the clerk said she had one cell phone left if I needed it.  While I was contemplating that, there was a small drawer in the counter where I was standing.  I opened the drawer and inside the drawer was a piece of railroad track for a toy train - the piece where one track splits into two tracks in a Y shape.

NOTE: since the advent of 'cell' phones, one can symbolically know that communication is done not only on a physical level by 'mouth to ear' but by 'cell' communication.

The dividing track shows that I could go in two different directions, but I had to choose just one.

I toyed with it for a moment, but then decided I couldn't use it because I didn't have the rest of the track.  I closed the drawer and bought the cell phone.

When I went back home, there was a huge tree (Rev. 22:2 ) growing in my kitchen.  On one end, on a long extended branch towards me was a beautiful flower in full bloom and I saw that all the other branches were full of buds ready to open.

I knew that the blooming flower was a gift from Rebecca, so I called her to thank her, which  I did profusely, but I knew that the other flowers would bloom in their own time.

And I glanced over toward the far end of the tree and there was a sign there that said, "Retire in Riverbank." (Rev. 22.2)

NOTE: Riverbank is the next town over from where we live. This may be an instruction of where to live if we should need to move from where we are. The dream makes Riverbank/River Bank have a double meaning for me.

6-17-08 - DREAM - I was in a room with a bunch of people including J.R. from "All My Children" TV show.

NOTE:  J.R. stands for Junior - As a youngster he was played by Jesse McCartney. He is now played by Jesse Young.   "All My Children may represent all the people of earth.

On the table was a bowl of green apples and I realized that I should have cooked them and made applesauce.

NOTE:  Table represents 'the earth.' In Genesis we are told that Eve gave an apple to Adam to eat because the serpent told her to do it, after God told her that she would die if she ate the fruit from the tree.

So I pared the apples and quartered them and was surprised to see they all had seeds that had to be removed.

So I cut the seeds and cores out of the apple quarters and put them into a kettle to cook down to applesauce, but they wouldn't cook down  and stayed the same shape - all separated.

Matthew 6:26-29 "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to your life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these."

Mark 4:3-8 "Listen! A sower went out to sow.And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and it sprang up quickly, since it had no depth of soil.And when the sun rose, it was scorched; and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. Other seed fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirty and sixty and a hundredfold."

Mark 4:30-32 He also said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade."


I then started hearing a band playing and watched the drum major, dressed in white, standing still on the street, marking time slowly only with his fingers, with his arm up at the 2 o'clock position.

Then  I wondered if Kayla (my friend's daughter)  could hold her arm that long. 

NOTE: (Her Mom says she can hold her arm up like that with her horn in her hand for 2 hours with no problem.  She was in the champion Spartans drum and bugle corp from New Hampshire for 3 years and they've won the gold medal for the U.S. 5 times.

Proverbs 3:18: She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.



Genesis:  8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 Genesis: 10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin [e] and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. [f] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

 Genesis 15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."


The Gnostic text says:  ('They' refers to the Archons)

They took Adam and put him the garden, that he might cultivate it and keep watch over it. And the rulers issued a command to him, saying, "From every tree in the garden shall you eat; yet from the tree of recognizing good and evil do not eat, nor touch it; for the day you eat from it, with death you are going to die."






Apples in the Bible

Deuteronomy 32:10
In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye . . .

Psalm 17:8
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.

Proverbs 7:2
Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.

Song of Solomon 2:3
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste.

Joel 1:12
The vine is dried up and the fig tree is withered; the pomegranate, the palm and the apple tree– all the trees of the field–are dried up. Surely the joy of mankind is withered away.

Zechariah 2:8-9
For this is what the Lord Almighty says: “After he has honored me and has sent me against the nations that have plundered you–for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye–I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me.”

Solomon’s love in the verse from Song of Solomon may have been comparing her husband to an actual apple tree since the apple trees we know today are descended from a genus of trees that still grow in Kazakhstan.

The wild ancestor of Malus domestica is Malus sieversii. It has no common name in English, but is known in Kazakhstan, where it is native, as ‘alma’; in fact, the region where it is thought to originate is called Alma-Ata, or ‘father of the apples’. This tree is still found wild in the mountains of Central Asia in southern Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Xinjiang, China. —Wikipedia

Apple symbolizes wisdom, because in the Bible, it is the fruit of the tree "that gives the knowledge of what is good and what is bad" 1(Genesis 2:9), which Adam and Eve are forbidden to eat. God had said "You may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree that gives the knowledge of what is good and what is bad..." 2(Genesis 2:16-17). Nevertheless, being tempted by the evil serpent, Adam and Eve eat the apple. After they consume the forbidden fruit, Adam and Eve "[are] given understanding" 3(Genesis 3:7), and are thrown from paradise, the Garden of Eden. Therefore, apple may also symbolize the beginning of an exile, or suffering.

Editors note:  The fruit of the tree in Genesis may actually be a fig because Adam and Eve covered their private parts with fig leaves after God confronted them.

The twelve major constellations of the Zodiac are referred to in the bible as the "Mazzaroth." The word "Zodiac" comes from the Greek zoad, which means "the way" or "the path." According to many Christian scholars, God depicted his story and his promise of salvation within the stars.

Astronomical worship

The Egyptian gods and goddesses were numerous and were pictured in many reliefs. Certain gods were seen in the constellations, and others were represented by actual astronomical bodies. The constellation Orion, for instance, represented Osiris, who was the god of death, rebirth, and the afterlife. The Milky Way represented the sky goddess Nut giving birth to the sun god Re. The stars in Egyptian mythology were represented by the goddess of writing, Seshat, whilst the Moon was either Thoth, the god of wisdom and writing, or Khons.

The horizon had great significance to the Egyptians, since it was here that the sun would both appear and disappear daily. The sun itself was represented by several gods, depending on its position within the sky. A rising morning sun was associated with Horus, the divine child of Osiris and Isis. The noon sun was Re because of its incredible strength. The evening sun became Atum, the creator god who lifted pharaohs from their tombs to the stars. The redness of the setting sun was considered to be the blood from the sun god as he "died" and became associated with Osiris, god of death and rebirth. In this way, night became to be associated with death, and the daytime with life or rebirth. This reflects the typical Egyptian idea of immortality.

The Mystery About the Senmut Star Map Senmut presents an entire celestial system for the first time

Ancient star knowledge included astronomy, astrology, and chronometry, and in the past it was an especially important subject in knowledge. A characteristic Egyptian version of this celestial knowledge was in use long before a specific expressed Babylonian astrology was taken up openly in Egypt.
          In the Karnak/Thebes temple already at an early stage, an observatory was placed on top of the sanctuary of Khonsu, the Moon god-son. And from most ancient times astronomical lines of sight were used in planning the axes of the temples.

          The great number of Senmut's many posts - in addition to being the administrator of the Egyptian calendar - was reasonable; for instance, the secretary of Pharaoh Amenhotep II was the chief-astronomer at the Karnak (Thebes) Temple and also a surveyor as well as the inventor of the world's first public book-keeping.
          The oldest astronomical traditions in Egypt are scarce and merely a few drawings of constellations. They show in particular Sirius - and the Great Bear, called khepesch (or sometimes meskhetiu) formed as a leg of an ox. Fragments have been found showing the 36 decan-constellations (earliest findings from 2300 BC) marking the Egyptians' division in 36 sections of the ecliptic (the apparent course of the sun).

          However, in the second and latest tomb of Senmut (in Thebes: no. TT353) the presentation was far better than by fragments, because the ceiling of the main chamber is adorned with a detailed astronomical and astro-mythological, complete star map, which for the first time presents an entire celestial system. This impressive map was both a landmark and an invention in Egyptian astronomy. And at all, they are the oldest collected, complete astronomical images.
          This unfinished and never used, secret tomb of Senmut was discovered in 1925 and dated to between 1500-1470 BC. The dating will be further elaborated and it will appear that in 1493 BC the construction of the tomb ended abruptly.

          It is peculiar that Senmut, whom many researchers presume was of a middle-class descent, has equipped his tomb in this special way not even a Pharaoh had been up to.
          Thus the tomb contained a special astronomical equipment, not only the oldest known in Egypt, but still for the next almost 300 years also the only example of such an elaborated, complete star map. It is a fact that after Senmut a few star maps have been found, and normally only with the Pharaohs. But later on, in the tomb of Seti I 1200 BC, such a regular, astronomical and astro-mythological celestial arrangement of stars was found again. And after this there is one with Ramses II, however not so elaborated.

          What kind of a man was Senmut, when he could compete on equal terms - even surpass the pharaohs in this for that time so important area? All traces and inscriptions show that although Senmut, besides having a deep knowledge about the stars, was the country's greatest man after Hatshepsut, and although he was backed up by a strong party, he mysteriously fell in disgrace all of a sudden and disappeared completely. Therefore, Senmut never took this tomb into use, and there are obvious traces showing that the work was interrupted suddenly. Materials from the Senmut tomb show dates made by the workers. The latest dates are from the interruption, which contribute to pinpoint the time when he disappeared.

Who were the authors of the Bible, this fine old book, known as The Book of God, or God's Word? What was their inspiration? From the confused accounts of the racial history of the Jewish people, little is known that can be considered reliable. It is speculated, with some reason, that they were migrants from a region of Afghanistan near the Hindu Kush, since Hebrew names and words are still common there. The Pentateuch itself marks its Brahmin origin. But whatever the history of the Jewish people before their captivity by Chaldeans and Egyptians, they had developed racial integrity and a strong sense of unity. Once they regained their freedom, they gathered together in an effort to rebuild their nation. Their aim was to have their own laws, their own scriptures, and their own God.

We know from the text of the Old Testament that it had more than one author and that its parts were written at different times and put together later. We read in Isis Unveiled, II, 470-1:

"That, after the first copy of the Book of God has been edited and launched on the world by Hilkiah, this copy disappears, and Ezra has to make a new Bible, which Judas Maccabeus finishes; that when it was copied from the horned letters into square letters, it was corrupted beyond recognition; . . . finally, we have a text . . . abounding with omissions, interpolations, and premeditated perversions.
Whoever Hilkiah or Ezra were, however, we find that the Book of God is largely composed of stories of the zodiac, the sun, and the laws or principles of nature, as they were known to the hierophants and high priests of Egypt and Chaldea, who were well versed in the wisdom-religion taught to humanity in its first conscious state.

It can be said that there is no actual history in the Old Testament, that the people in its pages are not real personages, but that most are symbolic of some phase of the zodiac -- the sun, the twelve signs, or a natural law. Abraham, for instance, was not a Jew, though portrayed as the Father of the Jewish people. He was borrowed from the Chaldeans, inspired by the mighty prince Zeru-an, who was rich in gold and silver, as written in Chaldean annals, and who bears a resemblance to Saturn.

Neither Solomon nor David is historical. David is pure myth, as are the prophets. David was conceived to be the founder of the Jewish dynasty, which through Solomon, his son and successor, acquired identification with the solar deity, giving it preeminence over all mankind. It is possible that the patriarchs were real figures, but even this remains uncertain. Yet let it not be supposed that there is no truth in the Old Testament. The allegories it contains are as truthful and profound in meaning as they are numerous. Also, the Scribes made their allegorical figures into vivid personalities speaking ideas, as often a delight to ponder on as they are edifying.

Although most of the Old Testament has been accepted by fundamentalists as the gospel truth, even they have confessed to doubts about Jonah and the whale. For a man to be swallowed live by a whale and survive to tell the tale was either a Biblical miracle or a bit of fisherman's braggadocio. There have been many attempts to interpret the allegory. However, since most of the main characters in the Bible personify the sun, we can safely assume that Jonah also represents some aspect of the solar orb. Those three uncomfortable days and nights were the winter solstice. Between the twenty-first and twenty-fourth of December the nights are the darkest and longest of the entire year and were known to ancient astrologers as the Whale's Belly. No doubt this has reference to the winter constellation Cetus, the Whale, which is just above the horizon at that time. The 'whale' was, therefore, in a position to swallow Jonah when he, as the sun, plunged into the sea. Thus it was that Jonah, the sun, spent three days and nights in the Whale's Belly, where he meditated on the Lord.

In the third century, when the church fathers were consolidating the Christian church, they had no knowledge of the date of Jesus' birth. They chose the date celebrated by the pagans, the winter solstice, when the darkest days give way to the promise of brighter ones. This was incorporated in terms of the zodiac into the story of the birth of Jesus, or the sun. In the late hour of the twenty-fourth of December, the zodiacal sign Virgo, or the Virgin, rests on the horizon or ascendant. At the hour of midnight, the sun enters the sign of Capricorn -- the manger and the goat. Thus is the sun -- Jesus -- born of a virgin, by an immaculate conception.

Later, as the story goes, the constellation of Orion rises in the East. The three bright stars in his belt are the three Wise Men who came from the East to offer gifts to the newborn King. These gifts were the new-old ideas incorporated into the teachings of Jesus, such as "love ye one another," "overcome evil with good," and "your Father and my Father are one," which replaced the old Jewish idea of "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." In the north are the two stars known to the Arabs as Martha and Mary. So are the starry heavens related to the great story. Later in the life of Jesus -- the sun -- the twelve signs of the zodiac become his disciples.

Although several centuries had passed since the Jewish Scriptures were written, the presentation of astronomical and philosophical principles by means of the zodiac had not changed. Paul was a Jew, and he was familiar with the Jewish Kabbalah and the science of allegories. It is hardly possible to understand the Old Testament, or the New, without some knowledge of the Jewish Kabbalah, the codebook of symbology. From it one learns the esoteric meaning of the first ten numbers, the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the geometrical triangle, the square, and the circle -- also the esoteric lore contained in the zodiac -- and these are the elements which help one to solve some of the riddles of the Old Testament. Hidden indeed is the meaning of the stories in the Old Testament, even when they are translated into the terms of the zodiac.

Why are the truths of nature so concealed? As Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians, "We speak the wisdom of God in mystery!" To hide the truth, of course, does not change the truth. The sun still shines upon the world as it always has, and always will until the end of its own cycle. It remains the life-giver, supplying the vital energy to every atom, and giving to every human being the power to realize his full potential. We must keep aware of the supreme place of the sun in our lives, in order better to open the way to a greater realization of the truth. "

(From Sunrise magazine, December 1974; copyright © 1974 Theosophical University Press)

The wisdom-religion was expressed, whether by Hindu, Chaldean, or Jew, in the same way -- through figures of speech, in myths, parables, or allegories. There are references to this in the New Testament, where Paul tells the Corinthians that the story of Moses is figurative -- ". . . the veil over his face . . . is untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament" -- and again where Paul tells the Galatians that the story of Abraham and his two wives is an allegory. Paul explains that this is the way it is told to those who do not know.

Whoever they were, the authors of the Old Testament were obviously scholars, presumably high priests, men well aware of the traditions and legends of other peoples all around them for distances of hundreds of miles. It is evident that they drew upon these traditions and legends in writing their scriptures, which were to set forth the alleged history and genealogy of the Jewish people

The Book of Enoch records that the angel Uriel revealed the figures in the stars called the constellations to the prophet Enoch.

Chapter 8 it says:

1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all 2 coloring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .

and in Chapter 9:

33.2 And to the east of these animals, I saw the ends of the Earth, on which Heaven rests, and the open Gates of Heaven. 33.3 And I saw how the stars of Heaven come out, and counted the Gates out of which they come, and wrote down all their outlets, for each one, individually, according to their number. And their names, according to their constellations, their positions, their times, and their months, as the Angel Uriel, who was with me, showed me. 33.4 And he showed me everything, and wrote it down, and also their names he wrote down for me, and their laws and their functions. 34.1 And from there I went towards the north, to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw a great and glorious wonder at the ends of the whole Earth. 34.2 And there I saw three Gates of Heaven; through each of them north winds go out; when they blow there is cold, hail, hoarfrost, snow, fog, and rain. 34.3 And from one Gate, it blows for good; but when they blow through the other two Gates, it is with force, and it brings torment over the earth, and they blow with force. 35.1 And from there I went towards the west, to the ends of the Earth, and I saw there, as I saw in the east, three open Gates - as many Gates and as many outlets. 36.1 And from there I went towards the south, to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw three Gates of Heaven open; and the south wind, the mist, and the rain, and wind, come out from there. 36.2 And from there I went towards the east of the ends of Heaven, and there I saw the three eastern Gates of Heaven open, and above them, there were smaller Gates. 36.3 Through each of these smaller Gates, the stars of Heaven pass, and go towards the west, on the path that has been shown to them.

The Book of Enoch

The four "cornerstone" constellations, which date back to the Prophet Enoch, correspond to the four faces of the cherubim and the four principal tribes of Israel. Their symbols of the lion, eagle/serpent, man and wild ox (unicorn) are emblazoned on family coats of arms and the banners of nations.

Several ancient cultures designated four bright stars in the zodiac as the "four corners of the earth" or the "four royal stars." At the time the constellations were drawn by Enoch, these four stars were near the sun's location in the heavens on the first day of autumn, winter, spring and summer, and were thus in four of the most important locations in the sky. The identity of these four stars is well known because there are, in fact, four bright stars which fit these requirements admirably. First, the star Antares is a bright red star, which anciently marked the autumnal equinox, that is, the place in the sky where the sun appears on the first day of autumn. The next star in the sequence is Fomalhaut, which is also a bright star, marking winter. The next star is Aldebaran, another very bright red star located 180.0° around the ecliptic (the apparent path of the sun through the stars) from Antares. Thus, it precisely marked the spring equinox when Antares marked the autumn. Finally, the bright star Regulus, located almost exactly on the ecliptic, marked summer. Regulus, meaning "the Prince," was traditionally the leader of these four royal stars.

Each of the four royal stars is in one constellation of the zodiac, which is the circle of twelve constellations around the ecliptic. Antares is located at the heart of the Scorpion (Scorpius). Fomalhaut is located at the end of the rivers of water being poured out by the Water Bearer (Aquarius). Aldebaran is located at the eye of the Bull (Taurus). Finally, Regulus is located at the heart of the Lion (Leo), which is the king of the constellations, even as the lion is called the king of beasts. These are called the four cornerstone constellations in this article because they form the corners of a great square in the sky and also provide a foundation for understanding gospel symbolism.

Two of the royal stars are listed by the ancients as being shared by two constellations. Antares is not only the heart of the scorpion, it is also the heel of the Serpent Bearer (Ophiuchus), [2] who was encircled by a great serpent (Serpens) and who is stepping on the body and head of the Scorpion. Fomalhaut is not only in the stream of the Water Bearer, it is also in the Head of the Southern Fish (Piscis Australis).[3]

In the case of the Scorpion/Serpent pair, there is a third constellation which is very closely associated with them. It is the Eagle (Aquila), which is located near the tail of the Serpent. The Eagle has been considered to typify the enemy of the serpent and is often shown holding the Serpent in its claws, even as the Serpent Bearer is crushing the Scorpion.

It has been shown from strictly scientific arguments that the constellations, as transmitted to us by the ancient Greeks, originated about 2900 B.C. at a location of about 30° north latitude. That means they are extremely ancient, being over 2,000 years older that the Greeks at their prime. That fits the Hebrew tradition perfectly that they were drawn by prophets before the Great Flood, and in particular, that they originated with the prophet Enoch, who would have lived about that time.

Traditionally there were 48 constellations in the original set: 12 principal constellations in a circle around the entire sky called the zodiac, with three other constellations called decans which accompanied each of those twelve.[5] Generally there is good agreement between ancient nations on just what those 48 are, but there have been minor disagreements on three or four of them. One seems to have been entirely lost, but it may have been recently restored.

The Bible had some very important verses to tell us that we should be looking at the stars:


Job 38:31-33 - God is speaking directly to His servant Job. He says, "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?"

Mazzaroth occurs in the context of the voice of Jehovah from the whirlwind (Job 38-41). Job shrivels up before God as challenge after challenge from the voice of the Creator accentuates Job's own nothingness in the presence of the Almighty. The infinite power and wisdom of the eternal God are contrasted time and again with the impotence and ignorance of Job as finite man, until Job is completely humbled. In the middle of this great barrage of challenges, Job is asked the question.

The Mazzaroth - The Alpha and Omega - The Study of the Stars  by Jim A Cornwell

Mazzaroth Defined

(Mazzaloth) appears in 2 Kings 23:5. The English Revised Version has "the twelve signs" and in the margin "the signs of the zodiac." The word itself means:  The Separated, The Divided, or The Apportioned, and it refers to the allotted spaces given to the twelve signs in the circle of the zodiac. These are the signs that mark the twelve divisions of the year.

The challenge of Jehovah to Job is that he might bring forth the twelve signs in their successive order. Of course only Jehovah could do it.

The Scriptures mention the twelve signs of the zodiac, with the direct implication that God brings them into view at the proper time for His own purposes.

Many of us have been brought up to associate the twelve signs with the of astrology. Astrology is a "soft science" which deals with subjective states of mind as well as with objective facts. Some branches of astrology are : electional, esoteric, genethliacal, horary, medical, meteorological, and mundane.

The book of Job, is probably the oldest book in the Bible, and is the book which most frequently mentions the constellations of stars. Job refers to two of the signs of the zodiac: Taurus, distinguished by the Pleiades, and Scorpio, referred to as "the Chambers of the South" in the King James Version. Three other constellations are mentioned: Orion, the Bear, and Hydra, the crooked serpent.

If the writings of Job date from as early as 2000 B.C., at which time the zodiac (Mazzaroth) and the constellations were well known, then even Biblical evidence points to their greater antiquity. The word zodiac comes from the Greek zodiakos, meaning A Circle. It is often assumed that the connection is with animals (living creatures, from the Greek Zoë, to live, and in English zoo, etc.). However, the root meaning of zodiakos has nothing to do with living creatures, but instead comes from a primitive root zoad, denoting A Way or A Path or Going by Steps. In this connection it is used of the way along which the sun appears to move through the stars in the course of twelve months. This course is repeated every year as the apparent position of the sun returns to almost the exact spot that it occupied on the same date a year before. So the path through the sky in which the sun travels (or appears to travel) is called the zodiac and is divided into twelve segments. Each of these twelve segments is marked by a group of stars which is easily recognized. These twelve groups of stars (constellations) have names that are familiar to most people and are known as the signs of the zodiac: Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, etc.

Aries (Ram): March 21–April 19
Taurus (Bull): April 20–May 20
Gemini (Twins): May 21–June 20
Cancer (Crab): June 21–July 22
Leo (Lion): July 23–Aug. 22
Virgo (Virgin): Aug. 23–Sept. 22
Libra (Scales): Sept. 23–Oct. 22
Scorpio (Scorpion): Oct. 23–Nov. 21
Sagittarius (Archer): Nov. 22–Dec. 21
Capricorn (Goat): Dec. 22–Jan. 19
Aquarius (Water Bearer): Jan. 20–Feb. 18
Pisces (Fish): Feb. 19–March 20

The Egyptians and the Babylonians kept track of the year by observing the stars that were in the sky where the sun appeared (Helio Rising).

They divided the year in to 12 parts because their number base was 12 or 60 and there are 12 moon cycles in a year. They had the 12 parts each of 30 days and a partial month of 5 days. They divided the part of the sky where the sun rose into 12 parts to represent the 12 parts of year. They assigned the group of stars names and pictures, now called constellations and together form the Zodiac.

When the Sun first arose in a constellation, it was said to be entering the constellation. Basically, it is starting the next month of the year. However, the earth has a little wobble in its axis and this became inaccurate over the centuries. Now if we used the same zodiac and looked to see where the sun rises we would see that the sun has shifted 2 constellations. It is 2 months off. Yet astrologers still use the old calendar (zodiac) to cast horoscopes.

Our names for the constellations came from the Latin, who got it from the Arabs, who got it from the Babylonians. Many of the star names and the measurement system used to map the heaven still have their Arabic names. For example, Betelgeuse means "arm pit" (of the giant) referring to the what we call the shoulder of the constellation Orion.

Where does Jesus go when he leaves the house of Pisces?

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

NOTE: "In my Father's abode are many dwelling places. In my Father's heavens are many houses - the 12 houses of the Zodiac.

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

John 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

John 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

John 14:11 Believe me that I [am] in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

John 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being [yet] present with you.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come [again] unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

When will this happen?

Mark 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

NOTE:  The twin towers?  9/11?

Mark 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any [man] deceive you:

Mark 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and shall deceive many.

Mark 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for [such things] must needs be; but the end [shall] not [be] yet.

Mark 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these [are] the beginnings of sorrows.

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against [their] parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter [therein], to take any thing out of his house:

Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

Mark 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

Mark 13:19 For [in] those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

NOTE: The Plagues


Two types of plague are believed to have caused the Black Death. The first is the "bubonic" type, which was the most common. The bubonic form of plague is ...


A plague of locusts is sweeping across the Sahel region of north-west Africa, leaving in its wake a trail of decimated crops in Mauritania, Mali, ...

Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here [is] Christ; or, lo, [he is] there; believe [him] not:

Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.

Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

Mark 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, [even] at the doors.

Mark 13:30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Mark 13:32 But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Mark 13:34 [For the Son of man is] as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

Mark 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.


5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, Jesus said,

 6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

NOTE:  9/11 twin towers?

 7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

 8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

 9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

 10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

 12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

 13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

 14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

 16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

 17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

 18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

 19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

 20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

 21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

 25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

 29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

 30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

 37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

 38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.

Luke 22

1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

 2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

 3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

 4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

 5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

 6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

 7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover [lamb] must be killed. [sacrificed]

 8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

 9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

 10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

NOTE:  The man with the water pitcher is Aquarius, which officially starts on Dec. 21, 2012

 11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

 14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

 15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

 16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

 17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

NOTE: This is the cup of Aquarius

 18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

 19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

 21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

 22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

 23 And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

 24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

 25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

 26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

 27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

 28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

NOTE: Every man born is born into a house of the Zodiac.

 30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

NOTE:  The twelve tribes are the houses of the Zodiac. Fully explained below

 31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

 33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

 34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

 35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

 39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

 40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

 41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

 45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

 46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

 47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

 48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

 49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

 50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

 51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

 52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

 53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

 54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.

 55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

 56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

 57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

 58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

 59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

 60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

 61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

 62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

 63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

 64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

 65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

 66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

 67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

 68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

 69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

 70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

 71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.


Didn't God have Paul tells us to look at the stars to see how the "wrath of God" is revealed in the heavens? Romans 1:18 Do you have another explanation that fits verse 23? What else can there be in the heavens that man could change from "the incorruptible God into an image make like to corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things?" There isn't anything up there to change but the pictures of the constellations. The Greeks changed the constellation of Coma from a seated woman with a child on her lap, to a swatch of hair, and called it Berenice. They obscured the picture that enhanced the main sign of Virgo. The woman holding the child fills out the "seed" concept offered by Virgo, with her stalk of wheat in one hand.

The Lunar Zodiac would seem from history to be more ancient than the Solar Zodiac. However, as we shall see, they undoubtedly have a common source. The Lunar Zodiac can be found in India, Arabia and China. Unlike China and Arabia, the Indian astronomy assigned figures to each of the Mansions of the Moon. The Lunar Zodiac travels around the same ecliptic as the Solar, but is divided into twenty-eight parts. Each of these Mansions has it's own particular name.

Nostradamus used the Moon Nodes to more closely determine what was going to happen in the future.  Today, Dr. Louis Turi uses Nostradamus' Dragon Tail of the Moon to predict what is going to happen.  I've listened to him for several years and I've never known him to be wrong yet.  Either was Nostradamus.

Joseph A. Seiss has written a very complete account of the Zodiacs, including related subjects, like primeval man. I urge you to get this book called, "The Gospel in the Stars." About the history of the Lunar Zodiac Seiss says, "Astronomers agree in regarding this Lunar Zodiac as containing the most ancient remains of the science of the stars. The Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians knew little or nothing about it, but it is a matter of record in China that it was known and understood in that country as early as the reign of Yao, about twenty-three hundred years before the Christian era, which was before the time of Abraham. In the Chinese astronomy it begins with Virgo, which would seem to indicate that the Chinese table came from the antediluvian times."

The Stars of Israel

There a lot of good reasons to perceive the narratives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the twelve sons of Israel as fictional accounts. One of them is that scholars have been able to date the time in which they were written to about the seventh century, and, according to the Bible, the events were supposed to have taken place about 2200 BCE-a 1600 year gap.

It was common practice, in those days, to write a legendary history as a means of defining a common cultural background. They weren't intended to serve as an accurate history; there were no records to work from.

According to the "Oxford History of the Biblical World", page 17, Israel was composed of a confederation. When a tribe joined, a name was placed in the eponymous list of sons of Jacob/Israel.

The twelve familiar names of the zodiac came from the Greeks. What we are interested in is what the Hebrews called these twelve constellations. In Genesis 49, Jacob is at the end of his life when he calls his sons together to tell them what fortune awaits them.

Placing the names of the twelve tribes with the zodiac is not an exact science. Three references, named below, come to different conclusions. On some names they agree and on others they don't; sometimes they are not convincing.

At minimum, they tell is that the Hebrews had a strong belief that the stars and the sun held the secrets to their destiny. By sticking with the symbology of the basic constellations and the stars that fall within their sector.


After Jacob fathered his twelve sons, God changed his name to Israel. In a roundabout way the name "Israel" means constellations of the Zodiac. According to Strong's dictionary, "Israel" means "he will rule as God". Astrologically, the sun god rules according to the motifs of the zodiacal constellation it is in.

28Then he said, "Your name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed." (Gen 32:28)


In Genesis 49, Jacob the father sun is entering the twilight of its descent. Jacob's swan song is to review the future of his twelve zodiacal sons.

1Then Jacob called his sons, and said, "Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in days to come.
Assemble and hear, O sons of Jacob, and hearken to Israel your father. (Gen 49:1-2)


Rueben rules in Aquarius the water bearer because of his association with water.

3Reuben, you are my first-born, my might, and the first fruits of my strength, pre-eminent in pride and pre-eminent in power.
4Unstable as water, you shall not have pre-eminence because you went up to your father's bed; then you defiled it-you went up to my couch! (Gen. 49:3-4)

Jacob's firstborn, Rueben, had sex with one of his father's concubine.

22While Israel dwelt in that land Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine; and Israel heard of it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve.
23The sons of Leah: Reuben (Jacob's first-born) (Gen 35:22)

Gemini and Libra

Simeon rules Gemini and Levi rules Libra as brothers in violence. Both constellations symbolize the number two. The Gemini are brothers and Libra the scale for settling debts.

That they "hamstring oxen" can be seen when the sun rises into Gemini, making the stars of Taurus appear to descend as if hamstrung. In the zodiac circle, Gemini lies above and next to Taurus, and Libra is opposite Taurus. Astronomically, when the sun ascends into Gemini, Taurus falls away from the sun. And when the sun enters Libra, Taurus is in full descent.

Jacob says he will divide and scatter the brothers in Israel, which means the two constellations are not in juxtaposition; one is next to Taurus and the other is opposite Taurus.

5Simeon and Levi are brothers; weapons of violence are their swords.
O my soul, come not into their council; O my spirit, be not joined to their company; for in their anger they slay men, and in their wantonness they hamstring oxen.
Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; and their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. (Gen. 49:5-7)

As slayers of men, Gemini includes two bright stars called the twins. In ancient mythology, the Gemini twins were warlike heroes who avenged the kidnapping of their sister Helen to Troy.

In Genesis 34, their sister Dinah was raped by Schecham the son of Hamor the Hivite. Simeon and Levi took revenge by murdering the father, son and all the males of the city. Not content to stop there, they plundered the city.

25On the third day, when they were sore, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and came upon the city unawares, and killed all the males.
26They slew Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went away.
27And the sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled; (Gen. 34:25-27)


Judah rules Leo the lion. Lions got their title as king of beasts because July is the hottest time of the year. Judah is the tribe from which king David descends.

Jacob associates Judah with lions. A throwback to the ancient Egyptians, a scepter and staff symbolize sovereignty.

8Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion's whelp; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as a lioness; who dares rouse him up?
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
Binding his foal to the vine and his ass's colt to the choice vine, he washes his garments in wine and his vesture in the blood of grapes;
his eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.(Gen. 49:8-12)


Pisces is ruled by Zebulun by its association with the sea. As a haven for ships, fish supply food for long voyages. Of course, water borders land.

13Zebulun shall dwell at the shore of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his border shall be at Sidon. (Gen. 49:13)


Issachar rules Taurus the bull. Asses associate with bulls in the sense that they are both pulling animals. Taurus follows Aries the sheep in the zodiac.

14Issachar is a strong ass, crouching between the sheepfolds;
he saw that a resting place was good, and that the land was pleasant; so he bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a slave at forced labor. (Gen. 49:13-15)


Dan rules Scorpio. In the sector of Scorpion, there is the constellation Serpens the serpent. A viper that bites the horse's heels, juxtapositions Scorpio next to Sagittarius, the half man half horse. When horse and rider fall backward can be seen because Sagittarius descends lower than Scorpio.

16Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel.
Dan shall be a serpent in the way, a viper by the path, that bites the horse's heels so that his rider falls backward.
I wait for thy salvation, O LORD. (Gen. 49:16-18)


Gad rules Sagittarius. "Raiders" make us think of something military. Being an archer, Sagittarius is a warlike constellation.

19Raiders shall raid Gad, but he shall raid at their heels. (Gen. 49:19)


Asher rules Virgo with its association with food. The sun enters Virgo at the end of the growing season. Virgo is pictured with stalks of grains in her hand.

20Asher's food shall be rich, and he shall yield royal dainties. (Gen. 49:20)


Naphtali rules Aries the lamb. The sun enters Aries at the beginning of spring when fawns and lambs are born.

21Naphtali is a hind let loose, that bears comely fawns.(Gen. 49:21)


Joseph rules Cancer. The sun enters Cancer at the height of its ascent when Orion the hunter with its bow can be seen upright. In the zodiac circle, Cancer is opposite Sagittarius, so allegorically they are in opposition. The archers' attack comes from Sagittarius the archer shooting across the divide from the winter solstice to the summer solstice.

22Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring; his branches run over the wall.
The archers fiercely attacked him, shot at him, and harassed him sorely;
yet his bow remained unmoved, his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (by the name of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel). (Gen. 49:22-24)

Orion is not one of the twelve zodiac constellations, but next to the sun, it is the most important constellation in Jewish and Christian mythology. He is the favorite son and the only one who receives God's blessings.

Starting at Genesis 37, Genesis devotes more space to Joseph than any of the other brothers. Joseph's brothers didn't like him, so they left him in a pit to be picked up by a caravan and sold as a slave in Egypt. In Christian mythology, Orion is personified as the Son of man.

25by the God of your father who will help you, by God Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that couches beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
The blessings of your father are mighty beyond the blessings of the eternal mountains, the bounties of the everlasting hills; may they be on the head of Joseph, and on the brow of him who was separate from his brothers. (Gen. 49:25-26)


Benjamin rules Capricorn as a ravenous wolf when Sirius the Dog Star rises above the horizon in early January. It is the brightest of all the stars. In Christian mythology, it is the Star of Bethlehem.

27Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, in the morning devouring the prey, and at even dividing the spoil." (Gen. 49:27)

A hint of Paul's dishonesty comes from his claim to be a descendant of the nonexistent tribe of Benjamin. After the Jews were exiled in 586 BCE, tribal names became extinct.

1I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. (Rom. 11:1)


Allegorically, when the sun dies, it is in full descent at the darkest months of winter, and is said to be in a cave. Thus, Jacob is buried in a cave. By a remarkable coincidence, Jesus was also carried to a cave after he died.

28All these are the twelve tribes of Israel; and this is what their father said to them as he blessed them, blessing each with the blessing suitable to him.
29Then he charged them, and said to them, "I am to be gathered to my people; bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,
30in the cave that is in the field at Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to possess as a burying place.
31There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah-
32the field and the cave that is in it were purchased from the Hittites."
33When Jacob finished charging his sons, he drew up his feet into the bed, and breathed his last, and was gathered to his people.

What's in a Name

If we want to get sticky about names, even the Bible doesn't agree on all of them.

Exodus 1 agrees with Genesis 49.

1These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household:

2Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
3Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
4Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.
5All the offspring of Jacob were seventy persons; Joseph was already in Egypt. (Ex. 1:1-5)

Judges 5 misses two tribes: Simeon and Levi. Two of them, Meroz and Machir, were added. Considering the importance of the tribe of Levi in the Exodus, this is not a minor omission-Moses and Aaron were supposed to be a Levites.

          Editors note: Judges 1:3 "And Judah said to his brother Simeon, "Come up
          with me into the territory allotted to me, that we may fight against the
          Canaanites; and I will likewise go with you into the territory allotted to you."

Machir was the first-born son of Manasseh (Josh. xvii. 1; I Chron. vii. 14); founder of the most important or dominant branch of the tribe of Manasseh. His importance is shown by the collocation of Ephraim and Machir (instead of Manasseh) in Deborah'e Song (Judges v. 14), which seems to imply that the whole tribe was once known by his name. This is confirmed by the statement that Machir was the only son of Manasseh (Num. xxvi. 29). In Gen. 1. 23 the children of Machir are said to have been "born upon Joseph's knees" (R. V.), that is, they were adopted by Joseph  (from the Jewish encyclopedia)

...his return with anticipations of rich booty (verses 28-30). " Meroz "—an unknown place—is cursed for its unwillingness to help Yhwh,
(from the Jewish encyclopedia)

14From Ephraim they set out thither into the valley, following you, Benjamin, with your kinsmen; from Machir marched down the commanders, and from Zebulun those who bear the marshal's staff;
the princes of Issachar came with Deborah, and Issachar faithful to Barak; into the valley they rushed forth at his heels. Among the clans of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.
Why did you tarry among the sheepfolds, to hear the piping for the flocks? Among the clans of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.
Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan; and Dan, why did he abide with the ships? Asher sat still at the coast of the sea, settling down by his landings.

Zebulun is a people that jeoparded their lives to the death; Naphtali too, on the heights of the field.
"Curse Meroz, says the angel of the LORD, curse bitterly its inhabitants, because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty. (Judges 5:14-18, 23)

In Deuteronomy 33, only eleven tribes are named; Simeon's name is missing.

6"Let Reuben live, and not die, nor let his men be few."
And this he said of Judah:
And of Levi he said,
12Of Benjamin he said,
13And of Joseph he said, such are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and such are the thousands of Manasseh."
And of Zebulun he said, "Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out; and Issachar, in your tents.
And of Gad he said,

And of Dan he said,
23And of Naphtali he said,
24And of Asher he said, (Deut. 33)

Editors note: Deuteronomy 27:11-13 "  11Moses also charged the people on that day, saying, 12 "When you cross the Jordan, these shall stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. 13 "For the curse, these shall stand on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali. "

People who meditate and channel higher beings
will feel these same two horns on their heads
while in trance.
Since Moses was a prophet, who channeled the higher spirit of God,
he would have had two horns likewise!

The Bible uses Numbers chapter 2 as a basis for the layout of the camp (temple/tree), and it goes on to define the astronomical positions of the tribes in Genesis 49.

Genesis 49

 1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

 2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

 3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

 4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

 5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

 6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

 7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

 8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.

 9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

 10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

 11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

 12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

 13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

 14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

 15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

 16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

 19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

 20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

 21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

 22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

 23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

 24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

 25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

 26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

 27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

 28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

 29 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

 30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

 31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

 32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

 33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.


Numbers 2

NOTE:  In red, you will see the names of the tribes and where they are located. In blue you will see in which order they march out.

 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

 2 Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch.

 3 And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah.

 17 Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place by their standards.

 18 On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their armies: and the captain of the sons of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud.

 30 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

 31 All they that were numbered in the camp of Dan were an hundred thousand and fifty and seven thousand and six hundred. They shall go hindmost with their standards.

 32 These are those which were numbered of the children of Israel by the house of their fathers: all those that were numbered of the camps throughout their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

 33 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

 34 And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses: so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, every one after their families, according to the house of their fathers.


NOTE:  The house of their fathers are the astrological houses.


These are the parts of Numbers 2 that give the order of the Tribes when they set out on the march are listed below, along with some other notes.

When I first read the verses, I realized they matched well with the New Jerusalem plan or diagram. When I understood the order of the march, I thought of 'marching through time'. In ancient symbolism, this could compare to the flying arrow or the moving river. I would think it would apply to people in a boat or other vehicle, land or air, moving along in time.

The Zodiac, like a clock, shows movement in time. Each year, in our perceptions, we "move through" all twelve signs. The precession, the wobble of the Earth's axis, causes a very slow progression "backward" through the Ages, each of which lasts an average of about 2,160 years, for the total circle of 25,920 years.

The apparent movement through the Ages, at a rate of 72-degrees each year, is tracked by the solstices and equinoxes, especially the winter solstice. That is give as the birth date of Mithras and Jesus, as December 25th. The actual date changes slowly, so that in 2012 it will be on December 21st (at 11:11 AM, of course!).

Here's the order --

Numbers 2:9 - The whole number of the camp of Judah, by their companies, is a hundred and eighty-six thousand four hundred. They shall set out first on the march.

Numbers 2:16 - The whole number of the camp of Reuben, by their companies, is a hundred and fifty-one thousand four hundred and fifty. They shall set out second.

Numbers 2:17 "Then the tent of meeting shall set out, with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camps; as they encamp, so shall they set out, each in position, standard by standard.

Numbers 2:24 - The whole number of the camp of E'phraim, by their companies, is a hundred and eight thousand one hundred.  They shall set out third on the march.

Numbers 2:31 - The whole number of the camp of Dan is a hundred and fifty-seven thousand six hundred.  They shall set out last, standard by standard."


I took these from the King James Bible, Revised Standard Version. You can select that version here --

I missed them when I first looked today, because I thought they were listed in straight order. The "marching order" verses are interspersed with the verses about their camp positions.

Note that the order is given by first, second, third, and last. These are the major four tirbes from the four quarters. Two minor tribes are in each of the quarters, so there are a total of three tribes in each quarter, for a total of twelve, who march in order. The Levites march in the middle, with six Tribes ahead and six Tribes behind.

First               Judah         East      Lion    Leo
Second         Reuben     South   Man    Aquarius

(no number)  Levites      Middle

Third            E'phraim   West      Ox         Taurus
Last              Dan            North     Eagle   Scorpio


The Levites are not considered a Tribe --

Numbers 2:33 - But the Levites were not numbered among the people of Israel, as the LORD commanded Moses.

The Priests from line of Aaron are in the center of camp, with the Tabernacle, symbolizing God in Heaven.

Scorpio was the Eagle to the ancients.

The symbois of the four main Tribes are the "Four Living Creatures" Ezekiel and Revelation (Lion, Ox, Man, Eagle).

In terms of the Zodiac that we know today, it seems that Ruben and E'phraim are reversed. Ruben, the Man, as Aquarius, should on the West, opposite to Judah on the East. The Sphinx illustrates this as the Lion/Man. E'phraim, the ox, Taurus, should be on the South.

Around 12,920 years ago, the Sphinx was facing toward the East, where Leo was in the sky. Aquarius was directly behind, 180 degrees away.

Here's a graphic of the Zodiac with Tribes

This is a graphic of the portal gaurdian from the palace of Ashurnasirpal II at Nimrud, Assyria, 833-859 BC, which represented the combined Lion, Ox, Man, and Eagle. Ezekiel was a captive in Babylon around 600 BC, so he knew of these combined creatures. Chances are, the concept came to the ancient Sumerians from the Annunaki.

This is the portal guardian from the palace of Ashurnasirpal II at Nimrud, Assyria, 883-859 BC. Limestone. Height 11 feet 6 inches.

The chimeral cherub combines the body of a bull, feet of a lion, wings and breast of an eagle, and a human head wearing a miter with six horns. These are features suggesting the four zodiacal signs of the spring and autumn equinoxes, summer and winter solstices, as they appeared when, not Aries, but Taurus was the vernal equinoctial sign; namely: Taurus, Leo, and Eagle (which later became Scorpio, and Aquarius. So combined, these four brought together in one symbolic form the quarters of that whole revolving screen of the sky, beyond and behind which the god Ashur resided - as Ashurnasirpal, his vicar on earth, beyond and behind the wall and portal protected by this Taurian cherub.  In the prophet Ezekiel's vision, late 6th century BC, the same four beasts were seen in the faces of the "creatures" before God's throne (Ezekiel 1:5-11, also 10:9-14) and in Christian iconography, they again appear as signs of the Evangelists.


This page shows a great deal of the interrelated graphics and information about the tribes, their camp positions and what it relates to:

Comparison: As I mentioned, the four living creatures are thought to represent Zodiac signs.  I first read about the idea in 1990, in Joseph Campbell's The Inner Reaches Of Outer Space.  A photograph is shown on page 77 of a "chimeral cherub," a large limestone carving.  It is a portal guardian from the palace of Ashurnasirpal II at Nimrud, Assyria, 833-859 BC.  The chimeral cherub combines the body of a bull, feet of a lion, wings and breast of an eagle, and a human head wearing a miter with six horns.  Ezekiel lived during the late 6th century BC, and was located in the area of Babylon, so it is likely that he was familiar with this symbolism.  The four living creatures correspond to the Zodiac signs during the Age of Taurus in this way -

Lion = Leo - summer solstice
Ox = Taurus - spring equinox
Eagle (which later became Scorpio) = autumnal equinox
Man = Aquarius, the Water Bearer - winter solstice

The Tribes, the Tabernacle and The Zodiac

In order to better understand the Book of Revelation, and its Zodiac associations, I think it is important to study this chapter of the Bible closely: Numbers 2.  See above or:;&version=9;

The ratchet spiral of the 1991 Barbury Castle pictogram seemed to represent six Ages, from the start of Leo to the end of Pisces.

The Cycle of Time

The ratchet, or Mercury spiral in the Barbury Castle formation may also indicate a cycle of time of six steps, followed by a seventh.  The angle from the center of the triangle to the corner touching the ratchet was at 120 degrees, a tetrahedral point.  From that point to the center of the ratchet, the angle was 108 degrees.  108 is a Gematrian number, and is associated with time cycles of 108 x 4 =432, or 1080 years.  It is the number of names for the goddess in India.  108 x 120 = 12960, the number of years in half the precession of the equinoxes through the Zodiac signs.  Divided by the six arcs, gives 2160, the length of one Age of the Zodiac.  This may suggest the period of time between Leo through Pisces. 

The Sphinx may also indicate this by the head of a man and the body of a Lion.  It was probably built in the Age of Leo, over 12,000 years ago, and it faces east, corresponding to the equinox points at that time.  Directly behind, at 180 degrees, would be Aquarius. 

About four years after these events, my friend, James Furia, informed me that the sphinx does not face directly toward the east, but is offset by about four-degrees.  I remembered that the offsets of the ratchet spiral of the Barbury Castle formation were at 4, 94, 184, and 274 degrees.  An imaginary cross through these offsets would be rotated clockwise four-degrees.  Perhaps this was yet another hint that the pattern was sphinx-related. 

There was an additional clue in the Barbury Castle formation, in the date it appeared, July 17, 1991.  According to H.P.  Blavatsky, in Isis Unveiled, vol.  2, the Biblical patriarchs represent zodiac signs.  For example, Judah is Leo.  In Genesis 49:9, he is called a lion's whelp, and he stoops down as a lion and a lioness, i.  e., like a sphinx.

Noah is Pisces.  Look up Genesis 8:4 and find that the Ark landed on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the 7th month.  This seems to be an additional clue that the Age of Pisces is ending, and that Aquarius is near, or perhaps already begun.

It is also interesting that 6 x 108 = 648, which was the length of the "double-helix/DNA" formation of 1996.  Messages about a DNA communication are coming from all over the place, including dreams, and "The Keys of Enoch" book by J.J. Hurtak.

The Pleiades and the Seventh Ray on the Seventh Day

This is a very large image of the 1991 Barbury Castle pictogram --

Take a look at the ratchet spiral on the lower right. You can see the six arcs and the suggested cross, offset 4-degrees from North.

In the upper right side is a diagram labeled, "DIAGRAM TO SHOW THE DIRECTION OF LAY." It shows the directions in which the wheat stalks were laid down. Notice that the wheat stalks in the ratchet spiral are laid down from the center of the ratchet counterclockwise, as if rotating toward the the triangle.

When I first saw the diagram in September 1991, I felt that it represented six steps in a cycle of time

The following poem by Yeats  seems to show the Sphinx, moving, i.e. the Tribes/Zodiac moving in time.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

The Second Coming, by William Butler Yeats



The four "cornerstone" constellations, which date back to the Prophet Enoch, correspond to the four faces of the cherubim and the four principal tribes of Israel. Their symbols of the lion, eagle/serpent, man and wild ox (unicorn) are emblazoned on family coats of arms and the banners of nations.

The Four Royal Stars

Several ancient cultures designated four bright stars in the zodiac as the "four corners of the earth" or the "four royal stars." At the time the constellations were drawn by Enoch, these four stars were near the sun's location in the heavens on the first day of autumn, winter, spring and summer, and were thus in four of the most important locations in the sky. The identity of these four stars is well known because there are, in fact, four bright stars which fit these requirements admirably.

First, the star Antares is a bright red star, which anciently marked the autumnal equinox, that is, the place in the sky where the sun appears on the first day of autumn.

The next star in the sequence is Fomalhaut, which is also a bright star, marking winter.

The next star is Aldebaran, another very bright red star located 180.0° around the ecliptic (the apparent path of the sun through the stars) from Antares. Thus, it precisely marked the spring equinox when Antares marked the autumn.

The bright star Regulus, located almost exactly on the ecliptic, marked summer. Regulus, meaning "the Prince," was traditionally the leader of these four royal stars.

Each of the four royal stars is in one constellation of the zodiac, which is the circle of twelve constellations around the ecliptic. Antares is located at the heart of the Scorpion (Scorpius). Fomalhaut is located at the end of the rivers of water being poured out by the Water Bearer (Aquarius). Aldebaran is located at the eye of the Bull (Taurus). Finally, Regulus is located at the heart of the Lion (Leo), which is the king of the constellations, even as the lion is called the king of beasts. These are called the four cornerstone constellations in this article because they form the corners of a great square in the sky and also provide a foundation for understanding gospel symbolism.

Two of the royal stars are listed by the ancients as being shared by two constellations. Antares is not only the heart of the scorpion, it is also the heel of the Serpent Bearer (Ophiuchus), [2] who was encircled by a great serpent (Serpens) and who is stepping on the body and head of the Scorpion. Fomalhaut is not only in the stream of the Water Bearer, it is also in the Head of the Southern Fish (Piscis Australis).

In the case of the Scorpion/Serpent pair, there is a third constellation which is very closely associated with them. It is the Eagle (Aquila), which is located near the tail of the Serpent. The Eagle has been considered to typify the enemy of the serpent and is often shown holding the Serpent in its claws, even as the Serpent Bearer is crushing the Scorpion.

The Four Cornerstone Constellations

Four Faces of the Cherubim. Both Ezekiel and John the Revelator describe creatures which correspond to the four cornerstone constellations. Ezekiel describes creatures with four faces: the face of a lion, of an ox, of a man and of an eagle, and later identifies them as cherubim (Ezek. 1:10, 10:14, 20-22). The first three of those forms correspond to the Lion, the Bull, and the Water Bearer constellations. The fourth apparently corresponds to the Eagle, the constellation which is often substituted for the serpent/scorpion when symbolizing the celestial aspect of the fourth cornerstone.

John the Revelator also describes four creatures, each of which is found on one side of the throne of God. One was like a lion, one like a calf, one like a man, and one like a flying eagle (Rev. 4:7). Here again we find the same four creatures which correspond to those four constellations, in this case given in the reverse order as they are found in the zodiac, which puts the leader first. The fact that these four symbols are found in a heavenly vision of the throne of God is strong corroboration of the claim in the Book of Enoch that an angel revealed the figures of the constellations to the Prophet Enoch.

Four Principal Tribes of Israel. Jacob (Israel) had twelve sons, and each of them is associated in Hebrew tradition with one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac.  Hebrew scholars are not sure of the correspondence of all twelve, but the identity of the four which refer to the royal constellations are clear from the scriptures. They are the four principal tribes: Reuben, Judah, Dan, and Joseph.

Each of those four tribes is associated with one of the royal constellations in the blessing given them by Jacob or by Moses. Reuben was told he is "unstable as water," which alludes to the Water Bearer. The name Reuben, meaning "Behold a son," also ties him to the Water Bearer, which, of all the zodiac constellations, has the figure of a man. He is also mentioned as being over the "excellency of power" (Gen. 49:3-4)

"Judah is a lion's whelp" (Gen. 49:9) ties him to the Lion. Moreover, John refers to Christ as "the lion of the tribe of Judah" (Rev. 5:5), again linking Judah to the lion. The Lion represents the King, and Judah began the royal lineage through which the Davidic line of kings came. The name Judah means "praised," suggesting that the kings who would come through him (especially Christ) would be praised.

"Dan shall be a serpent...that biteth the horse heels" (Gen. 49:17), which parallels the symbolism of the Scorpion/Serpent, depicted stinging the Serpent Bearer in the heel. The name Dan means "judge" and the serpent symbolizes the wisdom of a judge. The serpent is acknowledged by the Lord as being one of the wisest of his creatures, probably because of its having the wise judgment of knowing when to strike. For example, the Lord has admonished his servants to be "wise as serpents and yet without sin" (D&C 111:11). The kind of wisdom referred to especially refers to that of being a good judge. Antares, the bright star in the scorpion, is located at the heart, which the Lord acknowledges as the seat of wisdom. For example, the Lord put wisdom into the heart of King Solomon so that he could judge his people wisely (2 Chron. 1:11-12, 1 Kings 10:24;
compare Exodus 26:2, Ecc. 8:5, Job 38:36).

Finally, Joseph is compared to a wild ox, with the multitudes of Ephraim and Manasseh compared to its two horns (Deut. 33:17). The King James version of the Bible translates the Hebrew word for wild ox as "unicorn," as noted in the footnote of the L.D.S. edition. The Hebrew word apparently refers to an extinct species of wild ox which has two long forward pointing horns, which is exactly how Taurus is depicted. The bright star in the Bull represents its eye, which is the symbol of a seer (one who "sees"). Joseph was known as a great seer, so the Bull was especially appropriate for his sign. The name Joseph means "Jehovah has added," probably referring to his multitude of descendants. Thus, each of the four principal tribes of Israel is explicitly correlated in the blessings of Jacob to one of the four cornerstone constellations.

Balaam's Prophecy. This same imagery was repeated in the prophecy of Balaam about the destiny of Israel. He mentions that Israel "shall pour water out of his buckets" (Reuben/Water Bearer), "he lay down as a lion" (Judah/Lion), and he has "the strength of an unicorn" (Joseph/Bull), and shall "break their bones" as does either an eagle or constrictor serpent (Num. 24:7-9). The fact that again all four figures correspond to the cornerstone symbolism indicates that this prophecy likely refers to the constellations associated with these tribes.

See: The Harlot and Balaam's Donkey:

Banners and Directions. Each of the tribes of Israel had a flag or banner with its sign. The Hebrew word for "sign" is translated "ensign" in the King James Bible (Num. 2:2), but Hebrew commentators make it clear that the signs also refer to zodiac constellations. According to tradition, the figure of a man was found on Reuben's banner, a lion on Judah's, a serpent on Dan's, and a bull on Joseph's (or more precisely, on his son Ephraim's, who took his place). When they camped, they did so with these four banners facing the four directions: Judah facing East, Reuben facing South, Ephraim facing West, and Dan facing North (Num 2:3, Num 2:10, Num 2:18, Num2:25).

Heart, Might, Mind and Strength. The four cornerstone constellations are also apparently symbolic of the four aspects of living souls: the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. One example where the Lord seems to acknowledge these categories is when he tells us to serve him with all our "heart, might, mind and strength" (D&C 4:2, 59:5). The heart seems clearly to indicate emotions, the mind represents mental capacities, and strength is physical. The word "might" apparently refers to spiritual strength because the Lord sometimes says "soul" instead of might (Mark 12:30). Thus "heart, might, mind and strength" apparently refers to our emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical aspects. Note that again these four are in the same order as the four cornerstone constellations.

Elements. The Lord also uses the symbols of fire, wind, water, and earth to represent these four aspects of living creatures. For example, he stated that "ye were born into the world by water, and blood, and the spirit, and so became of dust a living soul..." (L.D.S.Moses 6:59). As a related example, there are two baptismal ordinances, each of which has a double significance. We are taught that the baptism of water symbolizes burial after death (Rom. 6:4), when we are immersed in the earth. Furthermore, the baptism that is associated with the ordinance of confirmation is often referred to in the scriptures as the "baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost" (L.D.S. 2 Nephi. 31:13-17;
D&C 19:31, 20:41).

Colors. These four elements are also represented by four colors. Red symbolizes the fire, blood, and emotions. White represents the spiritual, just as white clothing is used for baptisms and other sacred ordinances. Black represents the earth, and physical things in opposition to the spiritual. The water is blue (or sometimes blue-green). One example of these colors from the scriptures is the colors of the four horses in the Book of Revelation. The first four of the seven seals each have a different colored horse and also one of the four cherubim associated with them. The colors in order are white, red, black, and yellow-green (chloros in Greek, translated "pale," Rev. 6:1-8). A further indication that this symbolism refers to the constellations is that the rider of the black horse holds a balance in his hand even as the Scorpion holds the Balance (Libra) in its claws. And again, they are in the same order as the constellations, but beginning with the Bull.

One of the strong indications of these four aspects in the stars is the placement of each of the royal stars in the constellation. Regulus is located at the heart of the Lion and the color associated with Judah/East/Lion is red. The heart is considered to be the center of the emotions and red is the color of blood/fire, which was the element associated with the emotions. Thus the red lion of Judah ties to the emotions.

The ancient Greeks described Taurus as a snow-white bull. Aldebaran, the first magnitude star is located at the eye of the Bull. The eye is symbolic of a seer, as was Joseph of Egypt, who was associated with the Bull. Thus, the Bull is apparently symbolic of spiritual strength, and especially the gift of being a seer.

Fomalhaut is located in the head of the Southern Fish. This is perfect placement to represent mental powers. The color that is associated with this direction varies: it can be blue, green or even yellow. The blue and green probably represent the water, whereas the yellow has been attributed to the sunlight coming from the south (the direction associated with Reuben/Water Bearer).

Antares is located at the heart of the scorpion, whose color is black. The heart is the seat of wisdom, and the scorpion/serpent symbolizes wisdom. The heart/chest can also symbolize physical strength.

Thus, the placement of all four of the royal stars in the cornerstone constellations is consistent with the symbolism of emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects of all living souls. Note also that the spiritual and physical are opposite each other in the circle (white opposite black), as are the mental and emotional (blue opposite red).

Heraldry and National Flags. The four symbols with their traditional colors are common in coats of arms used in heraldry, and also in the symbolism of many national flags. For example, the royal flag of Scotland is composed of the red lion on a gold background. The symbolism here is apparently that their kings are from the royal blood line of Judah. The arms of England reverse those colors, with a gold lion on a red background. The coat of arms of Great Britain combines these symbols (along with Ireland's harp), flanked by the lion and unicorn. The unicorn is an excellent symbol for the British people who are mostly descendants of Joseph, and the lion for their kings, from the royal line of Judah.

Some nations combine two different symbolic animals together, perhaps to represent the combining of two families. One example is the griffin, which has the head and wings of an eagle and the lower body of a lion. It also said to have the ears of a horse (unicorn or wild ox?). It is found on many coats of arms throughout the region of the Baltic Sea and may represent the combining of Dan and Judah (and Joseph?).

Four Hebrew Tabernacle Colors. The Lord commanded Moses to use four colors of cloth repeated throughout the tabernacle, especially for embroidering images of the cherubim. They were blue, purple, scarlet, and linen (white), nearly always mentioned in that order (Ex. 26:31, 36; 27:16;
28:5-15). Those are the same as the four colors of the cherubim, with purple substituted for black. That substitution could well be because purple was the color of Levi, and the tribe of Levi were the temple workers. Moreover, black is the least appropriate of the colors for a temple, which symbolizes spirituality (white). In support of this interpretation, note that in the Book of Revelation, the 144,000 temple workers include the tribe of Levi (purple), but not the tribe of Dan (black) (Rev. 7:4-8).

The Four Kinds of Flesh. The symbolism of the figures of the constellations also explain the "four kinds of flesh" as described in the scriptures. As already discussed, the Book of Revelation and Ezekiel both mention creatures having the faces of the lion, bull, man, and eagle.

When the Prophet Joseph Smith inquired to know their meaning, the Lord explained:

"They are figurative expressions, used by the Revelator, John, in describing heaven, the paradise of God, the happiness of man, and of beasts, and of creeping things, and of the fowls of the air; that which is spiritual being in the likeness of that which is temporal; and that which is temporal in the likeness of that which is spiritual; the spirit of man in the likeness of his person, as also the spirit of the beast, and every other creature which God has created." — D&C 77:2

Here the Lord mentions four kinds of creatures: man, beasts, creeping things, and birds. The Hebrew word translated as "creeping things" in the Old Testament includes reptiles, amphibians, fish,[5] and all invertebrates.

Paul also mentions four kinds of flesh: " All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds" (I Cor. 15:39). Here he used "fishes" to represent the "creeping things" category. The Lord gives modern day support to Paul's usage by repeating his same four categories (D&C 29:24, 101:24).

The four cornerstone constellations include representatives of each zoological category of animal by making use of double and triple constellations. First, the Scorpion, Serpent Bearer, and Eagle form a set represent invertebrates, reptiles, and birds. Second, the Water Bearer and the Southern Fish form a double constellation representing mankind and fish. The Bull represents beasts (mammals). The lion is the king of all the beasts and hence might well represent all creatures.

Each of these four constellations also refers to a different role of the Savior, who personifies all the best traits of mankind combined. To understand them, let us consider each of these four constellations in more detail.

The Scorpion and Serpent Bearer. The Serpent Bearer has been wounded in the heel by the Scorpion and is wrestling the Serpent, which encircles him. He appears, however, to have the Serpent under control. His feet are firmly planted, and one of them is crushing the body and head of the Scorpion.

There are at least two important meanings which these constellations bring to mind. First, they can be seen as a graphic portrayal of the great promise that Adam and Eve heard in the Garden of Eden, when they were being judged by the Lord for having partaken of the forbidden fruit. The promise was given that someday her seed (her descendant) would have power to crush the serpent's head, even though the serpent would be able to bruise his heel (Gen. 3:15). There are several heroes in the constellations with one foot on the head of a serpent and the other foot having been wounded. For example, the Lion's feet are on the head of the Fleeing Serpent (Hydra), and Hercules' foot is firmly planted on the head of the Dragon (Draco).

Second, it reminds us of the serpent around the staff that healed the Israelites who looked at it, after having been bitten by the fiery flying serpents (Num. 21:8). The serpent on the staff has long been a symbol of healing and medicine, generally believed to be the source of the caduceus staff of Mercury still is used by our medical profession today. If, however, the idea was already shown in the constellations, then it dates much farther back than Moses. The Serpent Bearer apparently symbolizes Christ as the great Healer who would crush the serpent's head by overcoming death. Paul's imagery in asking "O death, where is thy sting?" (1 Cor. 15:55) readily calls to mind the futility of the scorpion stinging the Master Healer who could victoriously crush death forever.

The symbolism of the serpent is two fold. Sometimes the serpent represents Satan, and sometimes it represents the Savior, as when Moses had the people look to the serpent on the staff to be healed. Thus, it is not only the Serpent Bearer who crushes the scorpion who represents Christ, but also the serpent/scorpion itself. The Heart of the Scorpion most likely symbolizes the Wise Judge, which again is best typified by Christ, who is called the "Righteous Judge" (2 Tim 4:8, L.D.S. Moses 6:57). The red star Antares, which is noted for its reddish color, is also in the foot of the Serpent Bearer, and Christ is described as having "feet like unto fine brass," (Rev. 1:15).

The Water Bearer. This constellation shows a man pouring a river of water out of a small jar, which descends onto the head of a fish. The water was said by the Greeks to be mixed with nectar, or to be "living water." The living water seems to refer to the Savior's true teachings and to temple blessings (John 4:14, 7:38; D&C 110:10), so the Water Bearer apparently represents Christ as the Master Teacher as well as he who endows with power. A very common name for the Savior during his ministry was "Master," which is the translation of the Greek word for teacher. This ties to the symbolism of the Water Bearer as representing the mental aspect of mankind.

This is another double constellation, and the royal star is also in the head of the Southern Fish. The fish is one symbol of Christ's Church, and one of the Savior's roles is to be the head of his church (Eph. 5:23).

The Bull. Taurus, the Bull, is a wild ox described by the Greeks as having a hide as white as snow and two long forward pointing horns like polished bronze or gold. Only the front half of the bull is shown in the constellation. Its front two legs are bent as if charging ferociously.

The bright red star in the Bull is found in its eye, representing a seer, and the Savior was the greatest prophet and seer. Even as the bull is described as being "snowy white" and having a red eye, so also the savior was described as having hair "white as snow and his eyes were as a flame of fire"
 (Rev. 1:14).

The meaning of the wild ox seems to have been capsulized perfectly by Moses who declared that the thousands of Manasseh and the ten thousands of Ephraim are the two horns of the wild ox of Joseph, and that they would "push the people together from the ends of the earth"
(Deut. 33:17, D&C 58:45), referring to the gathering of the house of Israel in the latter-days.  Note that the Lord used this same imagery of the thousands and also ten thousands as he introduced Moses on the day that Moses actually restored the keys of gathering Israel (D&C 110:9).

Perhaps the most interesting part for latter-day saints is that the Bull is apparently symbolic of the latter-day Kingdom of God. The prophecy of the history of the world in the Book of Enoch refers to kingdoms as animals, with the great millennial kingdom represented by a white bull:

Then I saw that a snow-white bull was born, with huge horns; all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the sky feared him and made petition to him all the time. I went on seeing until all their kindred were transformed, and became snow white cattle; and the first among them became a wild ox, and that wild ox became a great beast with huge black horns on its head. The Lord of the sheep rejoiced over it and over all the cattle. I myself [Enoch] was in their midst.
1 Enoch 90:37-39 (89:45-49 in Laurence translation).

This symbolism precisely matches that of the constellations. The white bull, the Kingdom of God in the last days, breaks into pieces the other kingdoms and grows to fill the whole earth (Dan. 2:35, 44; D&C 65:2, 105:32). "All their kindred" being transformed into snow-white cattle matches the symbolism of the twelve snow-white oxen which hold up the baptismal font in L.D.S. temples, in which all the tribes of Israel are symbolized by the bull, the symbol of the tribe of Joseph. Note also that it prophesies that Enoch himself would be with the latter-day saints, which agrees with modern revelation (L.D.S. Moses 7:63).

The Bull may represent Zion, the Kingdom of God in the western hemisphere, from which the law will go forth (Isa. 2:3, D&C 133:21). Moreover, because the Bull apparently represents the Kingdom of God and its great armies, another probable role of the Savior represented by the Bull is "the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel" (1 Samuel 17:45).

The Lion. The Lion is the symbol of the King, and the symbolism for the Savior's mission is clearly as his role as King of Kings (Rev. 17:14, 19:16). Thus, all of these constellations point to Christ.

The Lion may also represent the eastern half of the Kingdom of God in Jerusalem from which the word will go forth, even as the Bull represents the Kingdom of God in the West (Isa. 2:3). It is depicted with its forepaws near the head of the Fleeing Serpent.

Astrology and the Bible

 Among the Hebrews the Chaldeans were the chief astrologers mentioned in the Old and New Testaments, and what knowledge the Jews had of astrology doubtless came from that source.

The planets and constellations are first alluded to in the history of Joseph, where in the second dream, "he beheld the Sun and the Moon and the eleven stars which made obeisance to him."  There are also Jewish traditions assigning a constellation to each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

According to Josephus, each of the twelve precious stones that formed the High Priest's breastplate bore the name of a tribe, connecting them with the signs of the zodiac.  "And for the twelve stones," he states, "whether we understand by them the months, or whether we understand the like number of the signs of that circle which the Greeks call the Zodiac, we shall not be mistaken in their meaning."

The character of the devices are said to have been borne on the standards carried by the four divisions of the host in the march through the wilderness.  Each division consisted of three tribes, and were known by the name of the principal tribe which formed it.  The camp of Judah was on the east, and the division of Judah led the march.  The camp of Reuben was on the south, that of Ephraim on the west and that of Dan on the north, which brought up the rear. 

The traditional devices, like totems, shown on the four standards are said to have been a lion for Judah, a man and a river for Reuben, a bull for Ephraim, and an eagle and a serpent for Dan.  It is asserted by some that in these four standards, the lion, man, bull, and eagle, and in two cases an additional symbol recall certain symbols of the constellations.  Thus, the man and a river, the device of Reuben, represented Aquarius the water-bearer; the lion of Judah, Leo; the bull of Ephraim, Taurus; and the eagle and serpent, two of the constellations

Solomon was credited with a knowledge of astrology as well as of magick.  This is based on the passage in the "Book of the Wisdom of Solomon" in the Apocrypha: "For God Himself gave me unerring knowledge of the things that are - the circuits of years and the positions of stars - the thoughts of men, the diversities of plants and the virtues of roots."

Apparently, in Solomon's time astrology and magick had merged into one.  The Jewish prayers to the planets are said to date from the third or second century B.C.E.  In them, both special angels and demons are assigned to the different bodies.  The association of angels with the planets was a connecting link with magick.  the angel Masleh was said to be the medium by means of which the power and influence of Jah descended into the Zodiac.  Sabbathi was associated in a similar way with Saturn. 

NOTE:  The symbols of Saturn/Venus

The angel Zadkiel transmitted power to Jupiter, and Gamaliel or Geburah descended through the sphere of Mars and imparted fortitude in time of war and affliction.  Raphael was associated with the Sun, giving heat and brightness to it, and Michael with Mercury, giving benignity and intelligence.  Adonai, who governed the angel Aniel, was associated with Venus, and Gabriel with the Moon.  These planetary demons and angels were supposed to regulate the destinies of men for evil or good, and the magicians claimed to be able to control them.

The Sabeans believed that every planet was inhabited by a spirit as a star-soul, and that the deciphering of the figures of the conjunction and opposition of the planets made the prediction of man's future destiny possible.

Helena Blavatsky - Isis Unveiled - Volume II
Beginning at page 439

David is the Israelitish King Arthur. He did great achievements and established a government in all Syria and Idumea. His dominion extended from Armenia and Assyria on the north and north-east, the Syrian Desert and Persian Gulf on the East, Arabia on the south, and Egypt and the Levant on the west. Only Phoenicia was excepted.

His friendship with Hiram seems to indicate that he made his first expedition from that country into Judea; and his long residence at Hebron, the city of the Kabeiri (Arba or four), would seem likewise to imply that he established a new religion in the country.

After David came Solomon, powerful and luxurious, who sought to consolidate the dominion which David had won. As David was a Jehovah-worshipper, a temple of Jehovah (Tukt Suleima) was built in Jerusalem, while shrines of Moloch-Hercules, Khemosh, and Astarte were erected on Mount Olivet. These shrines remained till Josiah.

There were conspiracies formed. Revolts took place in Idumea and Damascus; and Ahijah the prophet led the popular movement which resulted in deposing the house of David and making Jeroboam king. Ever after the prophets dominated in Israel, where the calf-worship prevailed; the priests ruled over the weak dynasty of David, and the

(page 440)

lacivious local worship existed over the whole country. After the destruction of the house of Ahab, and the failure of Jehu and his descendants to unite the country under one head, the endeavor was made in Judah. Isaiah had terminated the direct line in the person of Ahaz (Isaiah vii. 9), and placed on the throne a prince from Bethlehem (Micah v. 2, 5). This was Hezekiah. On ascending the throne, he invited the chiefs of Israel to unite in alliance with him against Assyria (2 Chronicles, xxx. 1, 21; xxxi. 1, 5; 2 Kings, xviii. 7). He seems to have established a sacred college (Proverbs xxv. 1), and to have utterly changed the worship. Aye, even unto breaking into pieces the brazen serpent that Moses had made.

This makes the story of Samuel and David and Solomon mythical. Most of the prophets who were literate seem to have begun about this time to write.

The country was finally overthrown by the Assyrians, who found the same people and institutions as in the Phoenician and other countries.

Hezekiah was not the lineal, but the titular son of Ahaz. Isaiah, the prophet, belonged to the royal family, and Hezekiah was reputed his son-in-law. Ahaz refused to ally himself with the prophet and his party, saying: "I will not tempt (depend on) the Lord" (Isaiah vii. 12). The prophet had declared: "If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established" -- foreshadowing the deposition of his direct language. "Ye weary my God," replied the prophet, and predicted the birth of a child by an alma, or temple-woman, and that before it should attain full age (Hebrews v. 14; Isaiah vii. 16; viii. 4), the king of Assyria should overcome Syria and Israel. This is the prophecy which Irenaeus took such pains to connect with Mary and Jesus, and made the reason why the mother of the Nazarene prophet is represented as belonging to the temple, and consecrated to God from her infancy.

In a second song, Isaiah celebrated the new chief, to sit on the throne of David (ix. 6, 7; xi. 1), who should restore to their homes the Jews whom the confederacy had led captive (Isaiah viii. 2-12; Joel iii. 1-7; Obadiah 7, 11, 14). Micah -- his contemporary -- also announced the same event (iv. 7-13; v. 1-7). The Redeemer was to come out of Bethlehem; in other words, was of the house of David; and was to resist Assyria to whom Ahaz had sworn allegiance, and also to reform religion (2 Kings, xviii. 4-8). This Hezekiah did. He was grandson of Zechariah the seer (2 Chronicles, xxix. 1; xxvi. 5), the counsellor of Uzziah; and as soon as he ascended the throne he restored the religion of David, and destroyed the last vestiges of that of Moses, i.e., the esoteric doctrine, declaring "our fathers have trespassed" (2 Chron., xxix. 6-9). He next attempted a reunion with the northern monarchy,

page 441

there being an interregnum in Israel (2 Chron., xxx. 1, 2, 6; 2 Chron. xxxi. 1, 6, 7). It was successful, but resulted in an invasion by the king of Assyria. But it was a new regime; and all this shows the course of two parallel streams in the religious worship of the Israelites; one belonging to the state religion and adopted to fit political exigencies; the other pure idolatry, resulting from ignorance of the true esoteric doctrine preached by Moses. For the first time since Solomon built them "the high places were taken away."

It was Hezekiah who was the expected Messiah of the exoteric state-religion. He was the scion from the stem of Jesse, who should recall the Jews from a deplorable captivity, about which the Hebrew historians seem to be very silent, carefully avoiding all mention of this particular fact, but which the irascible prophets imprudently disclose. If Hezekiah crushed the exoteric Baal-worship, he also tore violently away the people of Israel from the religion of their fathers, and the secret rites instituted by Moses.

It was Darius Hystaspes who was the first to establish a Persian colony in Judea, Zoro-Babel was perhaps the leader. "The name Zoro-babel (Zurubbabel) means 'the seed or son of Babylon' -- as Zoro-aster is the seed, son, or prince of Ishtar."* The new colonists were doubtless Judaei. This is a designation from the East. Even Siam is called Judia, and there was an Ayodia in India. The temples of Solom or Peace were numerous. Throughout Persia and Afghanistan the names of Saul and David are very common. The "Law" is ascribed in turn to Hezekiah, Ezra, Simon the Just, and the Asmonean period. Nothing definite; everywhere contradictions. When the Asmonean period began, the chief supporters of the Law were called Asideans or Khasdim (Chaldeans), and afterward Pharisees or Pharsi (Parsis). This indicates that Persian colonies were established in Judea and ruled the country; while all the people that are mentioned in the books of Genesis and Joshua lived there as a commonalty (see Ezra ix. 1).

There is no real history in the Old Testament, and the little historical information one can glean is only found in the indiscreet revelations of the prophets. The book, as a whole, must have been written at various times, or rather invented as an authorization of some subsequent worship, the origin of which may be very easily traced partially to the Orphic Mysteries, and partially to the ancient Egyptian rites in familiarity with which Moses was brought up from his infancy.

Since the last century the Church has been gradually forced into concessions of usurped biblical territory to those to whom it of right belonged.

page 442

Inch by inch has been yielded, and one personage after another been proved mythical and Pagan. But now, after the recent discovery of George Smith, the much-regretted Assyriologist, one of the securest props of the Bible has been pulled down. Sargon and his tablets are about demonstrated to be older than Moses. Like the account of Exodus, the birth and story of the lawgiver seem to have been "borrowed" from the Assyrians, as the "jewels of gold and jewels of silver" were said to be from the Egyptians.

On page 224 of Assyrian Discoveries, Mr. George Smith says: "In the palace of Sennacherib at Kouyunjik, I found another fragment of the curious history of Sargon, a translation of which I published in the Transactions of the Society of Biblical Archaeology, vol. i., part i., page 46.

Editors note: Compare the following story to Moses

This text relates that Sargon, an early Babylonian monarch, was born of royal parents, but concealed by his mother, who placed him on the Euphrates in an ark of rushes, coated with bitumen, like that in which the mother of Moses hid her child (see Exodus ii.). Sargon was discovered by a man named Akki, a water-carrier, who adopted him as his son; and he afterward became King of Babylonia. The capital of Sargon was the great city of Agadi -- called by the Semites Akkad -- mentioned in Genesis as a capital of Nimrod (Genesis x. l0), and here he reigned for forty-five years.* Akkad lay near the city of Sippara,** on the Euphrates and north of Babylon. "The date of Sargon, who may be termed the Babylonian Moses, was in the sixteenth century and perhaps earlier."

G. Smith adds in his Chaldean Account that Sargon I. was a Babylonian monarch who reigned in the city of Akkad about 1600 B.C. The name of Sargon signifies the right, true, or legitimate king. This curious story is found on fragments of tablets from Kouyunjik, and reads as follows:

1. Sargona, the powerful king, the king of Akkad am I.
2. My mother was a princess, my father I did not know, a brother of my father ruled over the country.
3. In the city of Azupirana, which is by the side of the river Euphrates,
4. My mother, the princess, conceived me; in difficulty she brought me forth.
5. She placed me in an ark of rushes, with bitumen my exit she sealed up.
6. She launched me in the river which did not drown me.
7. The river carried me to Akki, the water-carrier it brought me.
8. Akki, the water-carrier, in tenderness of bowels, lifted me, etc., etc.

* Moses reigned over the people of Israel in the wilderness for over forty years.

** The name of the wife of Moses was Zipporah (Exodus ii).

And now Exodus ii: "And when she (Moses' mother) could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein, and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink."

The story, says Mr. G. Smith, "is supposed to have happened about 1600 B.C., rather earlier than the supposed age of Moses* as we know that the fame of Sargon reached Egypt, it is quite likely that this account had a connection with the event related in Exodus ii, for every action, when once performed, has a tendency to be repeated."

See: - birth of Moses 1393 BCE
I have also seen it stated as 1456 BCE

The "ages" of the Hindus differ but little from those of the Greeks, Romans, and even the Jews. We include the Mosaic computation advisedly, and with intent to prove our position. The chronology which separates Moses from the creation of the world by only four generations seems ridiculous, merely because the Christian clergy would enforce it upon the world literally.** The kabalists know that these generations stand for ages of the world. The allegories which, in the Hindu calculations, embrace the whole stupendous sweep of the four ages, are cunningly made in the Mosaic books, through the obliging help of the Masorah, to cram into the small period of two millenniums and a half (2513)!

The exoteric plan of the Bible was made to answer also to four ages. Thus, they reckon the Golden Age from Adam to Abraham; the silver, from Abraham to David; copper, from David to the Captivity; thenceforward, the iron. But the secret computation is quite different, and does not vary at all from the zodiacal calculations of the Brahmans. We are in the Iron Age, or Kali-Yug, but it began with Noah, the mythical ancestor of our race.


Noah, or Nuah, like all the euhemerized manifestations of the Unrevealed One -- Swayambhuva (or Swayambhu), was androgyne. Thus, in

* About 1040, the Jewish doctors removed their schools from Babylonia to Spain, and of the four great rabbis that flourished during the next four centuries, their works all show different readings, and abound with mistakes in the manuscripts. The "Masorah" made things still worse. Many things that then existed in the manuscripts are there no longer, and their works teem with interpolations as well as with lacunae. The oldest Hebrew manuscript belongs to this period. Such is the divine revelation we are to credit.

** No chronology was accepted by the rabbis as authoritative till the twelfth century. The 40 and 1,000 are not exact numbers, but have been crammed in to answer monotheism and the exigencies of a religion calculated to appear different from that of the Pagans. ("Chron. Orth.," p. 238). One finds in the "Pentateuch" only events occurring about two years before the fabled "Exodus" and the last year. The rest of the chronology is nowhere, and can be followed only through kabalistic computations, with a key to them in the hand.

some instances, he belonged to the purely feminine triad of the Chaldeans, known as "Nuah, the universal Mother." We have shown, in another chapter, that every male triad had its feminine counterpart, one in three, like the former. It was the passive complement of the active principle, its reflection. In India, the male trimurty is reproduced in the Sakti-trimurti, the feminine; and in Chaldea, Ana, Belita and Davkina answered to Anu, Bel, Nuah. The former three resumed in one -- Belita, were called:

"Sovereign goddess, lady of the nether abyss, mother of gods, queen of the earth, queen of fecundity."

As the primordial humidity, whence proceeded all, Belita is Tamti, or the sea, the mother of the city of Erech (the great Chaldean necropolis), therefore, an infernal goddess. In the world of stars and planets she is known as Istar or Astoreth. Hence, she is identical with Venus, and every other queen of heaven, to whom cakes and buns were offered in sacrifice,* and, as all the archaeologists know, with Eve, the mother of all that live, and with Mary.


The Ark, in which are preserved the germs of all living things necessary to repeople the earth, represents the survival of life, and the supremacy of spirit over matter, through the conflict of the opposing powers of nature. In the Astro-Theosophic chart of the Western Rite, the Ark corresponds with the navel, and is placed at the sinister side, the side of the woman (the moon), one of whose symbols is the left pillar of Solomon's temple -- Boaz. The umbilicus is connected with the receptacle in which are fructified the germs of the race.** The Ark is the sacred Argha of the Hindus, and thus, the relation in which it stands to Noah's ark may be easily inferred, when we learn that the Argha was an oblong vessel, used by the high priests as a sacrificial chalice in the worship of Isis, Astarte, and Venus-Aphrodite, all of whom were goddesses of the generative powers of nature, or of matter -- hence, representing symbolically the Ark containing the germs of all living things.

We admit that Pagans had and now have -- as in India -- strange symbols, which, to the eyes of the hypocrite and Puritan, seem scandalously

[[Footnote(s)]] -------------------------------------------------

* The Gnostics, called Collyridians, had transferred from Astoreth their worship to Mary, also Queen of Heaven. They were persecuted and put to death by the orthodox Christians as heretics. But if these Gnostics had established her worship by offering her sacrifices of cakes, cracknels, or fine wafers, it was because they imagined her to have been born of an immaculate virgin, as Christ is alleged to have been born of his mother. And now, the Pope's infallibility having been recognized and accepted, its first practical manifestation is the revival of the Collyridian belief as an article of faith (See "Apocryphal New Testament"; Hone: "The Gospel of Mary attributed to Matthew").

immoral. But did not the ancient Jews copy most of these symbols? We have described elsewhere the identity of the lingham with Jacob's pillar, and we could give a number of instances from the present Christian rites, bearing the same origin, did but space permit, and were not all these noticed fully by Inman and others (See Inman's Ancient Faiths Embodied in Ancient Names).

Describing the worship of the Egyptians, Mrs. Lydia Maria Child says: "This reverence for the production of life, introduced into the worship of Osiris, the sexual emblems so common in Hindustan. A colossal image of this kind was presented to his temple in Alexandria, by King Ptolemy Philadelphus. . . . Reverence for the mystery of organized life led to the recognition of a masculine and feminine principle in all things, spiritual or material. . . . The sexual emblems, everywhere conspicuous in the sculptures of their temples, would seem impure in description, but no clean and thoughtful mind could so regard them while witnessing the obvious simplicity and solemnity with which the subject is treated."*

Thus speaks this respected lady and admirable writer, and no truly pure man or woman would ever think of blaming her for it. But such a perversion of the ancient thought is but natural in an age of cant and prudery like our own.

The water of the flood when standing in the allegory for the symbolic "sea," Tamti, typifies the turbulent chaos, or matter, called "the great dragon." According to the Gnostic and Rosicrucian medaeival doctrine, the creation of woman was not originally intended. She is the offspring of man's own impure fancy, and, as the Hermetists say, "an obtrusion." Created by an unclean thought she sprang into existence at the evil "seventh hour," when the "supernatural" real worlds had passed away and the "natural" or delusive worlds began evolving along the "descending Microcosmos," or the arc of the great cycle, in plainer phraseology. First "Virgo," the Celestial Virgin of the Zodiac, she became "Virgo-Scorpio." But in evolving his second companion, man had unwittingly endowed her with his own share of Spirituality; and the new being whom his "imagination" had called into life became his "Saviour" from the snares of Eve-Lilith, the first Eve, who had a greater share of matter in her composition than the primitive "spiritual" man.**

[[Footnote(s)]] -------------------------------------------------

** Lilith was Adam's first wife "before he married Eve," of whom "he begat nothing but devils"; which strikes us as a very novel, if pious, way of explaining a very philosophical allegory.

page 446

Thus woman stands in the cosmogony in relation to "matter" or the great deep, as the "Virgin of the Sea," who crushes the "Dragon" under her foot. The "Flood" is also very often shown, in symbolical phraseology, as the "great Dragon." For one acquainted with these tenets it becomes more than suggestive to learn that with the Catholics the Virgin Mary is not only the accepted patroness of Christian sailors, but also the "Virgin of the Sea." So was Dido the patroness of the Phoenician mariners;* and together with Venus and other lunar goddesses -- the moon having such a strong influence over the tides -- was the "Virgin of the Sea." Mar, the Sea, is the root of the name Mary. The blue color, which was with the ancients symbolical of the "Great Deep" or the material world, hence -- of evil, is made sacred to our "Blessed Lady." It is the color of "Notre Dame de Paris." On account of its relation to the symbolical serpent this color is held in the deepest aversion by the ex-Nazarenes, disciples of John the Baptist, now the Mendaeans of Basra.

Among the beautiful plates of Maurice, there is one representing Christna (Krishna) crushing the head of the Serpent. A three-peaked mitre is on his head (typifying the trinity), and the body and tail of the conquered serpent encircles the figure of the Hindu god. This plate shows whence proceeded the inspiration for the "make up" of a later story extracted from an alleged prophecy. "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."

The Egyptian Orante is also shown with his arms extended as on a crucifix, and treading upon the "Serpent"; and Horus (the Logos) is represented piercing the head of the dragon, Typhon or Aphophis. All this gives us a clew to the biblical allegory of Cain and Abel. Cain was held as the ancestor of the Hivites, the Serpents, and the twins of Adam are an evident copy from the fable of Osiris and Typhon. Apart from the external form of the allegory, however, it embodied the philosophical conception of the eternal struggle of good and evil.

But how strangely elastic, how adaptable to any and every thing this mystical philosophy proved after the Christian era! When were ever facts, irrefutable, irrefragable, and beyond denial, less potential for the reestablishment of truth than in our century of casuistry and Christian cunning? Is Christna (Krishna)proved to have been known as the "Good Shepherd-

* It is in commemoration of the Ark of the Deluge that the Phoenicians, those bold explorers of the "deep," carried, fixed on the prow of their ships, the image of the goddess Astarte, who is Elissa, Venus Erycina of Sicily, and Dido, whose name is the feminine of David.

page 447

ages before the year A.D. 1, to have crushed the Serpent Kalinaga, and to have been crucified -- all this was but a prophetic foreshadowing of the future! Are the Scandinavian Thor, who bruised the head of the Serpent with his cruciform mace, and Apollo, who killed Python, likewise shown to present the most striking similarities with the heroes of the Christian fables; they become but original conceptions of "heathen" minds, "working upon the old Patriarchal prophecies respecting the Christ, as they were contained in the one universal and primeval Revelation"!*

The flood, then, is the "Old Serpent" or the great deep of matter, Isaiah's "dragon in the sea" , over which the ark safely crosses on its way to the mount of Salvation. But, if we have heard of the ark and Noah, and the Bible at all, it is because the mythology of the Egyptians was ready at hand for Moses (if Moses ever wrote any of the Bible), and that he was acquainted with the story of Horus, standing on his boat of a serpentine form, and killing the Serpent with his spear; and with the hidden meaning of these fables, and their real origin. This is also why we find in Leviticus, and other parts of his books, whole pages of laws identical with those of Manu.

The animals shut up in the ark are the human passions. They typify certain ordeals of initiation, and the mysteries which were instituted among many nations in commemoration of this allegory. Noah's ark rested on the seventeenth of the seventh month. Here we have again the number; as also in the "clean beasts" that he took by sevens into the ark. Speaking of the water-mysteries of Byblos, Lucian says: "On the top of one of the two pillars which Bacchus set up, a man remains seven days."** He supposes this was done to honor Deukalion. Elijah, when praying on the top of Mount Carmel, sends his servant to look for a cloud toward the sea, and repeats, "go again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time, behold there arose a little cloud out of the sea like a man's hand."***

"Noah is a revolutio of Adam, as Moses is a revolutio of Abel and Seth," says the Kabala; that is to say, a repetition or another version of the same story. The greatest proof of it is the distribution of the characters in the Bible. For instance, beginning with Cain, the first murderer, every fifth man in his line of descent is a murderer. Thus there come Enoch, Irad, Mehujael, Methuselah, and the fifth is Lamech, the second

murderer, and he is Noah's father. By drawing the five-pointed star of Lucifer (which has its crown-point downward) and writing the name of Cain beneath the lowest point, and those of his descendants successively at each of the other points, it will be found that each fifth name -- which would be written beneath that of Cain -- is that of a murderer. In the Talmud this genealogy is given complete, and thirteen murderers range themselves in line below the name of Cain. This is no coincidence. Siva is the Destroyer, but he is also the Regenerator. Cain is a murderer, but he is also the creator of nations, and an inventor. This star of Lucifer is the same one that John sees falling down to earth in his Apocalypse.

In Thebes, or Theba, which means ark -- TH-ABA being synonymous with Kartha or Tyre, Astu or Athens and Urbs or Rome, and meaning also the city -- are found the same foliations as described on the pillars of the temple of Solomon. The bicolored leaf of the olive, the three-lobed figleaf, and the lanceolate-shaped laurel-leaf, had all esoteric as well as popular or vulgar meanings with the ancients.

The researches of Egyptologists present another corroboration of the identity of the Bible-allegories with those of the lands of the Pharaohs and Chaldeans. The dynastic chronology of the Egyptians, recorded by Herodotus, Manetho, Eratosthenes, Diodorus Siculus, and accepted by our antiquarians, divided the period of Egyptian history under four general heads: the dominion of gods, demi-gods, heroes, and mortal men. By combining the demi-gods and heroes into one class, Bunsen reduces the periods to three: the ruling gods, the demi-gods or heroes -- sons of gods, but born of mortal mothers -- and the Manes, who were the ancestors of individual tribes. These subdivisions, as any one may perceive, correspond perfectly with the biblical Elohim, sons of God, giants, and mortal Noachian men.

Editors note: Read the books of Zechariah Sitchen for more details. His book "The Twelfth Planet" has a whole different explanation for the 'flood'.


Anthropologists have found evidence of humanoid giants existing into the far distant past, over 1 million years ago (see Gigantopithecus). ...

Diodorus of Sicily and Berosus give us the names of the twelve great gods who presided over the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac. These names, which include Nuah,* are too well known to require repetition. The double-faced Janus was also at the head of twelve gods, and in his representations of him he is made to hold the keys to the celestial domains. All these having served as models for the biblical patriarchs, have done still further service -- especially Janus -- by furnishing copy to St. Peter and his twelve apostles, the

former also double-faced in his denial, and also represented as holding the keys of Paradise.

This statement that the story of Noah is but another version in its hidden meaning of the story of Adam and his three sons, gathers proof on every page of the book of Genesis. Adam is the prototype of Noah. Adam falls because he eats of the forbidden fruit of celestial knowledge; Noah, because he tastes of the terrestrial fruit: the juice of the grape representing the abuse of knowledge in an unbalanced mind. Adam gets stripped of his spiritual envelope; Noah of his terrestrial clothing; and the nakedness of both makes them feel ashamed. The wickedness of Cain is repeated in Ham. But the descendants of both are shown as the wisest of races on earth; and they are called on this account "snakes," and the "sons of snakes," meaning the sons of wisdom, and not of Satan, as some divines would be pleased to have the world understand the term. Enmity has been placed between the "snake" and the "woman" only in this mortal phenomenal "world of man" as "born of woman." Before the carnal fall, the "snake" was Ophis, the divine wisdom, which needed no matter to procreate men, humanity being utterly spiritual. Hence the war between the snake and the woman, or between spirit and matter. If, in its material aspect, the "old serpent" is matter, and represents Ophiomorphos, in its spiritual meaning it becomes Ophis-Christos. In the magic of the old Syro-Chaldeans both are conjoint in the zodiacal sign of the androgyne of Virgo-Scorpio, and may be divided or separated whenever needed. Thus as the origin of "good and evil," the meaning of the S.S. and Z.Z. has always been interchangeable; and if upon some occasions the S.S. on sigils and talismans are suggestive of serpentine evil influence and denote a design of black magic upon others, the double S.S. are found on the sacramental cups of the Church and mean the presence of the Holy Ghost, or pure wisdom.

The Midianites were known as the wise men, or sons of snakes, as well as Canaanites and Hamites; and such was the renown of the Midianites, that we find Moses, the prophet, led on, and inspired by "the Lord," humbling himself before Hobab, the son of Raguel, the Midianite, and beseeching him to remain with the people of Israel: "Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp IN THE WILDERNESS, thou mayest be to us instead of eyes."* Further, when Moses sends spies to search out the land of Canaan, they bring as a proof of the wisdom (kabalistically speaking) and goodness of the land, a branch with one cluster of grapes, which they are compelled to bear between two men on a staff. Moreover, they add: "we saw the children of ANAK there."

They are the giants, the sons of Anak, "which come of the giants,* and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."**

Anak is Enoch, the patriarch, who dies not, and who is the first possessor of the "mirific name," according to the Kabala, and the ritual of Freemasonry.

Comparing the biblical patriarchs with the descendants of Vaiswasvata, the Hindu Noah, and the old Sanscrit traditions about the deluge in the Brahmanical Mahabharata, we find them mirrored in the Vaidic patriarchs who are the primitive types upon which all the others were modelled. But before comparison is possible, the Hindu myths must be comprehended in their true significance. Each of these mythical personages bears, besides an astronomical significance, a spiritual or moral, and an anthropological or physical meaning. The patriarchs are not only euhemerized gods -- the prediluvian answering to the twelve great gods of Berosus, and to the ten Pradjapati, and the postdiluvian to the seven gods of the famous tablet in the Ninevean Library, but they stand also as the symbols of the Greek AEons, the kabalistic Sephiroth, and the zodiacal signs, as types of a series of human races.*** This variation from ten to twelve will be accounted for presently, and proved on the very authority

* The Bible contradicts itself as well as the Chaldean account, for in chapter vii. of Genesis it shows "every one of them" perishing in the deluge.

*** We do not see why the clergy -- especially the Catholic -- should object to our statement that the patriarchs are all signs of the zodiac, and the old gods of the "heathen" as well. There was a time, and that less than two centuries ago, when they themselves exhibited the most fervent desire to relapse into sun and star worship. This pious and curious attempt was denounced but a few months since by Camille Flammarion, the French astronomer. He shows two Augsburgian Jesuits, Schiller and Bayer, who felt quite anxious to change the names of the whole Sabean host of the starry heaven, and worship them again under Christian names! Having anathematized the idolatrous sun-worshippers for over fifteen centuries, the Church now seriously proposed to continue heliolatry -- to the letter this time -- as their idea was to substitute for Pagan myths biblical and (in their ideas) real personages. They would have called the sun, Christ; the moon, Virgin Mary; Saturn, Adam; Jupiter, Moses (!); Mars, Joshua; Venus, John the Baptist; and Mercury, Elias.

 And very proper substitutes too, showing the great familiarity of the Catholic Church with ancient Pagan and kabalistic learning, and its readiness, perhaps, to at last confess the source whence came their own myths. For is not king Messiah the sun, the Demiurge of the heliolaters, under various names? Is he not the Egyptian Osiris and the Grecian Apollo?

of the Bible. Only, they are not the first gods described by Cicero,* which belong to a hierarchy of higher powers, the Elohim -- but appertain rather to the second class of the "twelve gods," the Dii minores, and who are the terrestrial reflections of the first, among whom Herodotus places Hercules.** Alone, out of the group of twelve, Noah, by reason of his position at the transitional point, belongs to the highest Babylonian triad, Noah, the spirit of the waters. The rest are identical with the inferior gods of Assyria and Babylonia, who represented the lower order of emanations, introduced around Bel, the Demiurge, and help him in his work, as the patriarchs are shown to assist Jehovah -- the "Lord God."

Besides these, many of which were local gods, the protecting deities of rivers and cities, there were the four classes of genius, we see Ezekiel making them support the throne of Jehovah in his vision. A fact which, if it identifies the Jewish "Lord God" with one of the Babylonian trinity, connects, at the same time, the present Christian God with the same triad, inasmuch as it is these four cherubs, if the reader will remember, on which Irenaeus makes Jesus ride, and which are shown as the companions of the evangelists.

The Hindu kabalistic derivation of the books of Ezekiel and Revelation are shown in nothing more plainly than in this description of the four beasts, which typify the four elementary kingdoms -- earth, air, fire, and water. As is well known, they are the Assyrian sphinxes, but these figures are also carved on the walls of nearly every Hindu pagoda.

The author of the Revelation copies faithfully in his text (see Rev. 4:7) the Pythagorean pentacle, of which Levi's admirable sketch is reproduced on page 452.

The Hindu goddess Adanari (or as it might be more properly written, Adonari, since the second a is pronounced almost like the English o) is represented as surrounded by the same figures. It fits exactly Ezekiel's "wheel of the Adonai," known as "the Cherub of Jeheskiel," and indicates, beyond question, the source from which the Hebrew seer drew his allegories. For convenience of comparison we have placed the figure in the pentacle. (See page 453.)

Apostles, popes, saints, martyrs, and personages of the Old and New Testament completed this Christian Sabeanism. "The disciples of Loyola used every exertion to make this plan succeed." It is curious to find in India among the Mussulmans the name of Terah, Abraham's father, Azar or Azarh, and Azur, which also means fire, and is, at the same time, the name of the Hindu third solar month (from June to July), during which the sun is in Gemini, and the full moon near Sagittarius.

Above these beasts were the angels or spirits, divided in two groups: the Igili, or celestial beings, and the Am-anaki, or terrestrial spirits, the giants, children of Anak, of whom the spies complained to Moses.

Editors note: See Zechariah Sitchin for more details.

The Kabbala Denudata gives to the kabalists a very clear, to the profane a very muddled account of permutations or substitutions of one person for another. So, for instance, it says, that "the scintilla" (spiritual spark or soul) of Abraham was taken from Michael, the chief

of the AEons, and highest emanation of the Deity; so high indeed that in the eyes of the Gnostics, Michael was identical with Christ. And yet Michael and Enoch are one and the same person. Both occupy the junction-point of the cross of the Zodiac as "man." The scintilla of Isaac was that of Gabriel, the chief of the angelic host, and the scintilla of Jacob was taken from Uriel, named "the fire of God"; the sharpest sighted spirit in all Heaven. Adam is not the Kadmon but Adam Primus, the Microprosopus. In one of his aspects the latter is Enoch,

page 453

the terrestrial patriarch and father of Methuselah. He that "walked with God" and "did not die" is the spiritual Enoch, who typified humanity, eternal in spirit and as eternal in flesh, though the latter does die. Death is but a new birth, and spirit is immortal; thus humanity can never die, for the Destroyer has become the Creator, Enoch is the type of the dual man, spiritual and terrestrial. Hence his place in the centre of the astronomical cross.

But was this idea original with the Hebrews? We think not. Every nation which had an astronomical system, and especially India, held the cross in the highest reverence, for it was the geometrical basis of the religious symbolism of their avatars; the manifestation of the Deity, or of the Creator in his creature MAN; of God in humanity and humanity in God, as spirits. The oldest monuments of Chaldea, Persia, and India disclose the double or eight-pointed cross. This symbol, which very naturally is found, like every other geometrical figure in nature, in plants as well as in the snowflakes, has led Dr. Lundy, in his super-Christian mysticism, to

page 454

name such cruciform flowers as form an eight-pointed star by the junction of the two crosses -- "the Prophetic Star of the Incarnation, which joined heaven and earth, God and man together."* The latter sentence is perfectly expressed; only, the old kabalist axiom, "as above, so below," answers still better, as it discloses to us the same God for all humanity, not alone for the handful of Christians. It is the Mundane cross of Heaven repeated on earth by plants and dual man: the physical man superseding the "spiritual," at the junction-point of which stands the mythical Libra-Hermes-Enoch. The gesture of one hand pointing to Heaven, is balanced by the other pointing down to the earth; boundless generations below, boundless regenerations above; the visible but the manifestation of the invisible; the man of dust abandoned to dust, the man of spirit reborn in spirit; thus it is finite humanity which is the Son of the Infinite God. Abba -- the Father; Amoria -- the Mother; the Son, the Universe. This primitive triad is repeated in all the tbeogonies. Adam Kadmon, Hermes, Enoch, Osiris, Christna, (Krishna) Ormazd, or Christos are all one. They stand as Metatrons between body and soul -- eternal spirits which redeem flesh by the regeneration of flesh below, and soul by the regeneration above, where humanity walks once more with God.

We have shown elsewhere that the symbol of the cross or Egyptian Tau, , was by many ages earlier than the period assigned to Abraham, the alleled forefather of the Israelites, for otherwise Moses could not have learned it of the priests. And that the Tau was held as sacred by the Jews as by other "Pagan" nations is proved by a fact admitted now by Christian divines as well as by infidel archeologists. Moses, in
xii. 22, orders his people to mark their door-posts and lintels with blood, lest the "Lord God" should make a mistake and smite some of his chosen people, instead of the doomed Egyptians.** And this mark is a tau! The identical Egyptian handled cross, with the half of which talisman Horus raised the dead, as is shown on a sculptured ruin at Philae.*** How gratuitous is the idea that all such crosses and symbols were so many unconscious prophecies of Christ, is fully exemplified in the case of the Jews upon whose accusation Jesus was put to death. For instance, the same learned author remarks in Monumental Christianity that "the Jews themselves acknowledged this sign of salvation until they rejected

[[Footnote(s)]] -------------------------------------------------

* "Monumental Christianity," p. 3.

** Who but the authors of the "Pentateuch" could have invented a Supreme God or his angel so thoroughly human as to require a smear of blood upon the door-post to prevent his killing one person for another! For gross materialism this exceeds any theistical conception that we have noticed in Pagan literature.

*** Denon: "Egypt," ii., pl. 40, No. 8, p. 54.

page 455

Christ"; and in another place he asserts that the rod of Moses, used in his miracles before Pharaoh, "was, no doubt, this crux ansata, or something like it, also used by the Egyptian priests."* Thus the logical inference would be, that 1, if the Jews worshipped the same symbols as the Pagans, then they were no better than they; and 2, if, being so well versed as they were in the hidden symbolism of the cross, in the face of their having waited for centuries for the Messiah, they yet rejected both the Christian Messiah and Christian Cross, then there must have been something wrong about both.

Those who "rejected" Jesus as the "Son of God," were neither the people ignorant of religious symbols, nor the handful of atheistical Sadducees who put him to death; but the very men who were instructed in the secret wisdom, who knew the origin as well as the meaning of the cruciform symbol, and who put aside both the Christian emblem and the Saviour suspended from it, because they could not be parties to such a blasphemous imposition upon the common people.

Nearly all the prophecies about Christ are credited to the patriarchs and prophets. If a few of the latter may have existed as real personages, every one of the former is a myth. We will endeavor to prove it by the hidden interpretation of the Zodiac, and the relations of its signs to these antediluvian men.

If the reader will keep in mind the Hindu ideas of cosmogony, as given in chapter vi., he will better understand the relation between the biblical antediluvian patriarchs, and that puzzle of commentators -- "Ezekiel's wheel."


 Thus, be it remembered 1, that the universe is not a spontaneous creation, but an evolution from pre-existent matter; 2, that it is only one of an endless series of universes; 3, that eternity is pointed off into grand cycles, in each of which twelve transformations of our world occur, following its partial destruction by fire and water, alternately. So that when a new minor period sets in, the earth is so changed, even geologically, as to be practically a new world; 4, that of these twelve transformations, the earth after each of the first six is grosser, and everything on it -- man included -- more material, than after the preceding one: while after each of the remaining six the contrary is true, both earth and man growing more and more refined and spiritual with each terrestrial change; 5, that when the apex of the cycle is reached, a gradual dissolution takes place, and every living and objective form is destroyed. But when that point is reached, humanity has become fitted to live subjectively as well as objectively. And not humanity alone, but also animals

page 456

plants, and every atom. After a time of rest, say the Buddhists, when a new world becomes self-formed, the astral souls of animals, and of all beings, except such as have reached the highest Nirvana; will return on earth again to end their cycles of transformations, and become men in their turn.

This stupendous conception, the ancients synthesized for the instruction of the common people, into a single pictorial design -- the Zodiac, or celestial belt. Instead of the twelve signs now used, there were originally but ten known to the general public, viz.: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo-Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius, and Pisces.* These were exoteric. But in addition there were two mystical signs inserted, which none but initiates comprehended, viz.: at the middle or junction-point where now stands Libra, and at the sign now called Scorpio, which follows Virgo. When it was found necessary to make them exoteric, these two secret signs were added under their present appellations as blinds to conceal the true names which gave the key to the whole secret of creation, and divulged the origin of "good and evil."

The true Sabean astrological doctrine secretly taught that within this double sign was hidden the explanation of the gradual transformation of the world, from its spiritual and subjective, into the "two-sexed" sublunary state. The twelve signs were therefore divided into two groups. The first six were called the ascending, or the line of Macrocosm (the great spiritual world); the last six, the descending line, or the Microcosm (the little secondary world) -- the mere reflection of the former, so to say. This division was called Ezekiel's wheel, and was completed in the following way: First came the ascending five signs (euphemerized into patriarchs), Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and the group concluded with Virgo-Scorpio. Then came the turning-point, Libra. After which, the first half of the sign Virgo-Scorpio, was duplicated and transferred to lead the lower, or descending group of Microcosm which ran down to Pisces, or Noah (deluge). To make it clearer, the sign Virgo-Scorpio, which appeared originally thus , became simply Virgo, and the duplication, , or Scorpio, was placed between Libra, the seventh sign (which is Enoch, or the angel Metatron, or Mediator between spirit and matter, or God and man). It now became Scorpio (or Cain), which sign or patriarch led mankind to destruction, according

[[Footnote(s)]] -------------------------------------------------

* In Volney's "Ruins of Empires" p. 360, it is remarked that as Aries was in its fifteenth degree 1447 B. C., it follows that the first degree of "Libra" could not have coincided with the Vernal equinox more lately than 15,194 years B. C., to which, if you add 1790 years since Christ, it appears that 16,984 years have elapsed since the origin of the Zodiac.

to exoteric theology; but, according to the true doctrine of the wisdom-religion, it indicated the degradation of the whole universe in its course of evolution downward from the subjective to the objective.

The sign of Libra is credited as a later invention by the Greeks, but it is not generally stated that those among them who were initiated had only made a change of names conveying the same idea as the secret name to those "who knew," leaving the masses as unwise as ever. Yet it was a beautiful idea of theirs, this Libra, or the balance, expressing as much as could possibly be done without unveiling the whole and ultimate truth. They intended it to imply that when the course of evolution had taken the worlds to the lowest point of grossness, where the earths and their products were coarsest, and their inhabitants most brutish, the turning-point had been reached -- the forces were at an even balance. At the lowest point, the still lingering divine spark of spirit within began to convey the upward impulse. The scales typified that eternal equilibrium which is the necessity of a universe of harmony, of exact justice, of the balance of centripetal and centrifugal forces, darkness and light, spirit and matter.

These additional signs of the Zodiac warrant us in saying that the Book of Genesis as we now find it, must be of later date than the invention of Libra by the Greeks; for we find the chapters of the genealogies remodeled to fit the new Zodiac, instead of the latter being made to correspond with the list of patriarchs. And it is this addition and the necessity of concealing the true key, that led the Rabbinical compilers to repeat the names of Enoch and Lamech twice, as we see them now in the Kenite table. Alone, among all the books of the Bible, Genesis belongs to an immense antiquity. The others are all later additions, the earliest of which appeared with Hilkiah, who evidently concocted it with the help of Huldah, the prophetess.

Editors note:  Nostradamus, who was a Jew, used 13 signs of the zodiac to calculate his astrology as does Dr. Turi as mentioned above.

As there is more than one meaning attached to the stories of the creation and deluge, we say, therefore, that the biblical account cannot be comprehended apart from the Babylonian story of the same; while neither will be thoroughly clear without the Brahmanical esoteric interpretation of the deluge, as found in the Mahabharata and the Satapatha-Brahmana. It is the Babylonians who were taught the "mysteries," the sacerdotal language, and their religion by the problematical Akkadians who -- according to Rawlinson came from Armenia -- not the former who emigrated to India. Here the evidence becomes clear. The Babylonian Xisuthrus is shown by Movers to have represented the "sun" in the Zodiac, in the sign of Aquarius, and Oannes, the man-fish, the semi-demon, is Vishnu in his first avatar; thus giving the key to the double source of the biblical revelation.
