Scorpio Season October 23 – November 22

Scorpio Season is a time of transformation and truth. Scorpio is emotional and powerful and likes to get to the bottom of things. This is a time for letting go of what no longer serves us and transforming the things that we want to hold on to. We can make big and important changes now, as well as deepening our emotional bonds, taking back our power and control of our own lives. Where most of us prefer to skirt around the darker side of life, Scorpio embraces it, they love to delve to the depths of things, even when they are not pretty, as they like to ‘clean house’. Scorpio can be passionate, and ambitious, soft and emotional, but if you wrong them, they will become angry and vindictive and won’t let things go, until they have hurt you in return, so be careful not to get on their bad side, Scorpio natives can hold a grudge like no other sign. They can also be manipulative and become fixated on an issue. However, if things are going well, they can be very loving and protective. Watch for these themes in your life during Scorpio time, since they love intimacy, you could be searching for the same, yet only indulging in hook ups, which will not bring the same satisfaction. Also, rein in those emotions, if someone gets your back up. Enjoy this time of getting in touch with your feelings and looking for the deeper meaning of life.

Scorpio is ruled by the Death card in Tarot. This goes along with Scorpio’s need for transformation, and does not depict actual death. It depicts an ability to let go of things from the past, in order to move on to powerful new beginnings, which serve us much better. It shows us what we can look forward to, if we can let go our fear of ‘death’, ie: change and embrace the future.

Algiz and Sowilo are the Runes which rule Scorpio.

Algiz is about opportunity and success, it is an optimistic and protective rune. Algiz speaks of success accomplished by hard work and determination, that your searching is over and shows peace and security, after hardship.

Sowilo is again, a positive card. It translates as Sun and depicts good health, success and power and is relative to relationships as well as business, giving motivation and energy, to create much needed changes.

Libra Season September 23 – October 22

My apologies that this is so late, coming after Libra Season.

Libra is and air sign and is all about balance, beauty and being sociable. During Libra season, you will notice more emphasis on Partnerships, friendships and romantic relationships, given that Libra is ruled by Venus. Even if you aren’t a Libra yourself, you will find yourself looking for more balance in your life and appreciating beautiful things as well as becoming more sociable, getting out and about more than usual. However, you may also find yourself being a little indecisive about making plans. Libra likes to weigh things up before making a decision, because they tend to see all sides of everything. Libra is also about fairness and want to ensure that the people they are making plans with are just as happy with what they are going to be doing. For the most part, life tends to feel a little simpler during Libra time, and we can enjoy the simple pleasures of life more.

Libra’s ruling Tarot card, is Justice. This fits so nicely with Libra as they are represented by the scales, as is Justice, and they intuitively seek balance and harmony, yet have to learn to balance this with knowledge. The Justice Card, is the 11th card in the Major Arcarna and again 11 shows balance and harmony. It is also about rights and justice for everyone, creating fairness and equality, which is very important to a Libra. Karma is also depicted here, which is a reminder to pay attention to our thoughts and actions, something that comes naturally to most Librans.

Libra is ruled by the Runes Tiwaz and Perth

Tiwaz translates literally as ‘The God, Tyr’ and represents Justice and sacrifice. It depicts honour, leadership, sacrifice, fairness and decision making. Tyr was a warrior, who lost his hand to a wolf, while fighting to save his people. He was victorious, but at great cost to himself to ensure the safety of his clan. This rune is positive, yet carries a message of responsibility and personal sacrifice.

Perth is the Rune of Fate. It shows us that life is uncertain, a gamble. It tells us about randomness and the infinite possibilities before us. It is a feminine energy and encourages us to use our intuition, trust our gut feelings, whilst showing us that on the whole, nothing is clear or certain.

Mercury Retrograde, October 31st – November 20th 2019

Mercury in Scorpio, goes retrograde on Halloween, October 31st. We all know that Mercury retrograde, can cause delays, miscommunications and technology nightmares. However, this retrograde looks like it will be a little nicer to us that usual, since it is conjunct Venus, which will make us all feel happier and more harmonious than would otherwise be the case. For the most part, we will all be feeling more loving and affectionate and will find others quite cooperative. We will, overall, be feeling more sociable that of late and will find it easy to make new friends and possibly, renew old friendships that may have gone by the wayside. Communication will be the main theme, since this is Scorpio season. We will be digging for the truth, and given that Scorpio is a water sign, it may be filled with emotion, Just be aware that Scorpio can have a sting to its tail and can be very intense, so there could also be struggles with sex, money and discussions about our feelings, if you have been holding anything back, it could come out as pent up rage now, so be careful where you aim this. The positive side, is that old problems could be resolved during this time, so long as you aren’t too controlling about things. You may even find that old loves show up during this time, but as always, remember they are exes for a reason. Try to be conservative with your money over this period, as there could be major losses with Uranus in Taurus.

New Moon in Scorpio, October 28th 2019

This new moon in Scorpio, along with the Sun and Venus, while Mars is in Libra, Saturn and Pluto remain in Capricorn and Uranus is still in Taurus.

This new moon is all about love and money. this is a great time to work on any relationship issues. Are you on the same page? Are you equally committed to your future? Are your financial goals in sync? Are you withholding, but expecting your partner to fix things? Is your relationship fulfilling and nurturing, on all levels? There could be restlessness or a need for freedom for either or both parties, be careful not to create too much distance between you, if you are feeling the need for independence, on either an emotional or financial front. Scorpio is about deep and intense feelings, which some of us may find overwhelming at this time, not necessarily even understanding what it is that we are feeling.

The Sun and Moon are in partial opposition to Uranus, so expect the unexpected. This is about our intuition and self awareness, you could suddenly come to a realisation about yourself, your subconscious awakening to things you have kept buried, perhaps a realisation that it is you that is holding you back, rather than any external forces or circumstances. This will perhaps create a need to want to break free, but with the logical knowledge that it may not be the best thing in the long term, along with a feeling that others do not really understand us. There is a need for compromise and an acceptance of differences, as well as leaving past hurts, right there in the past, particularly in romantic relationships. There is a possibility for sudden, physical attraction to someone, but be aware that it may not be a lasting thing, and within a short time, you could be just as suddenly turned off them, if there is no depth to their personality.

With Mars and Saturn involved, there could be a push me pull you feel to things over the next few days, with Mars’ aggression causing us to want to move forward quickly, versus Saturn wanting us to move at a slower pace, so that we have more chance of getting things right. Pay extra attention to safety, as there is a higher potential for accidents, especially in the work place, slow down and be cautious about whatever it is you are doing. There could be conflict and rebellion in your life, or perhaps just around you, or else just a general feeling of crankiness in the air, or maybe it is you that is feeling unsatisfied in general, which brings the risk of causing conflict for conflicts’ sake.

This new moon is a work in progress, with the full outcome being seen in May of 2020, so whatever you start, make it positive and for your highest good.

Symbols and Symbolism

Symbols are everywhere, they are so common that we barely notice them. The most common form is the logo. The word logo comes from the Greek word Logos meaning: word, plan and reason among other definitions. Many of the most successful companies and ventures have logos representing Gods; a Google image search using the term logos based on ancient gods may surprise you.

While the meaning behind logos are intriguing this article will focus on specific symbols and how they are used to influence the general public and relate complex messages and ideals. The Evil Eye is known to almost everyone, we have read about it in books and seen it in films and while the public believe it to be an innocuous fictional emblem, it has profound meaning.

A Google image search using the term celebrities one eye symbolism will bring photos of many of the rich and famous with one eye covered, or one eye closed looking through the circle made with the thumb and forefinger. While the meaning of this can be debated, its use cannot. There is clearly a message behind this symbolism.

Matthew 6:22-23 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.

The left eye of Horus is associated with the Moon and its God: Thoth and his right eye with the Sun and its God: Ra.

I will elaborate on this but first a foundation needs to be laid. A Google image search for Masonic Tracing Board will bring images similar to the one above. This is probably the most well-known of the Freemasonic symbols and almost certainly the most misunderstood.

The pillars either side are those of The Temple of Solomon, their names are Boaz and Jachin and they represent opposites. The left pillar is Jachin, the letter S stands for strength and is male, the right pillar is Boaz and the letter B stands for beauty and is female. The chessboard also symbolises duality, opposites as do the Sun and the Moon. The Ladder is Jacobs Ladder the ladder which God and the Angels used to go to and from Heaven in Jacobs dream. There is also a key hanging from the ladder. There are other symbols that are not relevant to this article that I will go into at a later date.

The Chessboard represents this reality and the general consensus that everything is either good or bad, black or white, that there are no grey areas. The pillars mean the same, though in the centre we have another pillar, this is the pillar of wisdom. Above Jachin is the Sun and above Boaz is the moon and in between them is the All Seeing Eye.

Man starts his journey on the Chessboard with base consciousness and the belief that there are no grey areas, that all can be defined using absolutes; good and bad, black and white, each lying in opposition to the other but once he is given the Key he can begin to see things differently. The Hermetic Philosophy teaches that all things with opposites are one thing: good and evil are the same thing, just varying degrees on the same scale. Light is darkness and again, only the degrees vary.

On the path to wisdom, one will realise that opposites can be united so that there is no longer good and evil but a synthesis of both. The pillar in the centre represents willpower and shows us that through the use of our own will we can change bad into good and vice versa. This is the key to understanding that allows us to climb Jacobs Ladder and ascend from the realm of duality to a higher consciousness, where even the Sun and the Moon are merged and become the All Seeing Eye.

This is the All Seeing Eye that is portrayed by celebrities who believe that they are no longer a part of this realm but are looking in from the outside, having been initiated into the Mysteries and passed the first three degrees of Freemasonry. They ascend towards the Sun which signifies both knowledge and the path to the stars, where a Master Mason awaits them to instruct them further.

The Sun represents the God Ra whose symbol is the upright triangle as well as the Christian religions, the Moon represents Thoth and Isis, whose symbols are the inverted triangle, and the Islamic religion. The All Seeing Eye represents Saturn, Judaism and its God: El whose symbol is the upright and inverted triangle combined, making the Star of David or the Pentagram.

While this may seem fanciful and entirely symbolic, it is anything but. At the North Pole of Saturn, lies a hexagon. A hexagon is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional cube as can be seen in the image above ; the cube itself has profound esoteric meaning. A cube when unfolded makes the shape of a cross and this is the meaning behind The Gnostic Cross, with the circle representing the uniting of the Sun and the Moon and the cross representing the hexagon of Saturn and the path of wisdom.

A cube is also a representation of this three dimensional reality and when the initiates are seen walking within a cube, as is often the case in music videos, this represents the fourth dimension of time. A Google image search using the terms the black cube of Saturn  will show cubes all over the world.  The Kaaba of the Muslim Faith is a giant black cube, the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon, as is that of Isis. This is the basis for the religion known as Saturnalia, an ancient belief system which was celebrated on the Winter Solstice; the shortest day of the year. The celebrations which the modern world calls Christmas are nothing to do with the birth of Christ but have their origins in Ancient Egypt.

Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire with the Edict of Thessalonica. This was done by the emperor Constantine. The persecution of Christians during the previous centuries had failed to stop the spread of Christianity and its followers could not be controlled. When Christianity was adopted by Rome, the Roman gods and beliefs were incorporated and Christianity became something entirely different to the teachings of the Bible.

Perhaps it is coincidence that Santa is an anagram of Satan; which means adversary and Satan represents Saturn. Perhaps it is coincidence that Santa Claus comes from Saint Nicholas and that Lucifer is also known as Old Nick. Perhaps it is coincidence that Christmas celebrations involve practises which are condemned throughout the Bible as being the worst of human behaviours. Or perhaps all is as it is supposed to be.

The Baphomet is another symbol of the Mystery Schools and some of the symbolism may now be obvious. The fire above the creature represents knowledge. Its hand are pointing above and below at moons, this represents the Hermetical principle of as above so below, as below so above. The goat head comes from the Biblical metaphor: Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. The wings are those of an Angel and signify the merging of man and God. Between the creatures legs sits the Staff of Hermes and represents alchemy. The pentagram on its head represents the all seeing eye and initiation into the mysteries. Written on the disk behind the Staff are the Latin words Solve and Coagula, which mean dissolve and bind respectively, these are opposites being united.

As above, so below, originated in the Emerald Tablets and its meaning is manifold. In the Secret of Secrets Tablet we read: Hear ye now of the mystery of nature, the relations of life to the Earth where it dwells. Know ye, ye are threefold in nature, physical, astral and mental in one. Three are the qualities of each of the natures; nine in all, as above, so below.

This tablet relates to the Hermetic teachings of Alchemy; that we are a threefold being existing on three separate planes of existence, those of the physical, spiritual and mental. Whatever is created on any of those planes will come into being on the others. This is how magic is performed. It is also used to explain the alchemical creation and journey of the soul and interestingly for such a prominent scientist,  Isaac Newton translated this himself:

Tis true without lying, certain and most true.
That which is below is like that which is above
and that which is above is like that which is below
to do the miracles of one only thing
And as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one:
so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
The Sun is its father,
the moon its mother,
the wind hath carried it in its belly,
the earth is its nurse.
The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
Separate thou the earth from the fire,
the subtle from the gross
sweetly with great industry.
It ascends from the earth to the heaven
and again it descends to the earth
and receives the force of things superior and inferior.
By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world
and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
Its force is above all force,
for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.
So was the world created.
From this are and do come admirable adaptations
where of the means is here in this.
Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist [sic],
having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world
That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.

I will explain this tablet in the coming articles, though I have already given the information needed to understand it. The next article will explain the origin of spelling and how it is used, along with symbols and Hermeticism to control the direction of societies and people.

Full Moon in Aries October 13th 2019

The moon will be full on October 13th, in Aries, at 20°. The Sun is in Libra, at 20°, and Pluto is in Capricorn, also at 20°. All three signs are Cardinal and the three planets, will be forming a T-Square. Hold on to your hats, its going to be quite the few days.

Libra is the planet of relationships and is all about ‘we’ but Aries is more about ‘me’, so this combination can be a little ‘push me pull you’. Capricorn is hardworking and practical. Aries is very direct and likes to jump right in and just get on with it, and this energy is perfect for that. If you have planets at 20° in your natal chart, you are likely to feel a surge of energy during this full moon, related to that particular planet. It is perfect for ‘clearing out’ anything negative in your life, anything that is holding you back, or not in your long term best interest. However, be careful not to misuse this energy, as you don’t want to find yourself in a disruptive or damaging situation. Beware being overbearing or overconfident and check those impulses, don’t ruin a good thing, with any temporary anger. Much good can come from this T-Square if you are careful and handle the next few days wisely, it is a good time for tackling anything that is holding you back psychologically, but don’t cause unnecessary drama, that will potentially linger. Emotions will likely be running high and there may be frustrations around what you want as opposed to what you need, and this could lead to conflict, due to your frustration.

With the sun in Libra, relationship issues could also come up. There is a possibility that you will suddenly see that there is some kind of imbalance in your relationship, There could be jealousy, fear and negative feelings. Or perhaps your relationship has been struggling, and this full moon will bring things to a head, leading to a more stable, happier relationship. Being open and honest, will be beneficial and lead to mutual respect and understanding. Overall, this looks to be a very transformational time.

Mystery Schools – The Great Work

To the Freemasons God is known as Adonai, which simply means Lord. They believe that Adonai and Lucifer are the two aspects of the one God. They believe that Lucifer is the force for good and Adonai the force for evil. The aim of the Great Work is to destroy both aspects and leave the way open to the Heavens above where the “real Gods” dwell.

The story is as follows, the Goddess Sophia (Goddess of Wisdom: Isis) bore a child. She was ashamed of her child and before the birth was discovered by the other Gods she threw her child from Heaven: She cast it away from her, outside that place, that no one of the immortal ones might see it, for she had created it in ignorance. And she surrounded it with a luminous cloud, and she placed a throne in the middle of the cloud that no one might see it except the Holy Spirit who is called the mother of the living.

The child was the God of the Bible, known to his mother as Yaldabaoth, to the Masons as Adonai and to the Christians as Yahweh or I AM. Being alone and knowing nothing of the heavens above and the true Gods, Adonai created the world as the Bible states but is merely a Demiurge. The Free Masons believe that as everything in this realm has it’s opposite; that the opposite of Adonai is Lucifer.

Isis is the Egyptian Goddess of Wisdom, she is Gaia to the Greeks  (the Goddess who brought Order out of Chaos)  Durga to the Hindu’s, Inanna and Ishtar to the Sumerians  Diana to the Romans and as mentioned in a prior article; Mary to the Catholics. Isis is the widowed wife and sister of Osiris and the virgin mother and wife of Horus; hers is the story of the dark virgin birth of God.

As Isis has her different names in the different languages, so does Osiris, he is Apollo, Apollyon, Abaddon, Nimrod, Cronos, Pan and Shiva. Their child Horus, is the dark equivalent of Christ and his symbol is the all seeing eye.

Isis, or Sophia is the lowest of the immortals who resides in the lowest of the Aeons: Pleroma which is one of many heavens where the immortals dwell. The Great Work of Gnostics is to merge Adonai with Lucifer in order that he be destroyed. In doing so, it is supposed that the way to the Pleroma will be opened and mankind will ascend to Heaven.

The story of Sophia et al can be traced to the Coffin Texts of ancient Egypt, which included texts known as the Book of Thoth; written by Thoth the Atlantean. This is the basis for the beliefs of the Gnostics, which is also known as Dualism. Dualism is essentially Alchemy, which in turn is Hermeticism. The stories of men attempting to turn base metals into gold come from those who took that metaphor literally when it simply means to turn man into a god using knowledge.

The knowledge that the Gnostics hold is vast and complex and cannot be reproduced in such a short article, it will therefore be condensed and summarised here. The nature of this realm is dualistic: everything has its nature and that nature has degrees i.e.; we refer to temperature as being hot and cold but there is not a point on the scale of measurement where hot becomes cold or vice versa, yet it has opposites. The same is true of good and evil, it is one and the same thing, which varies only by degree; some things are neither good nor evil but there is no point where good becomes evil nor vice versa.

This is expanded to cover objects; the Sun has it’s opposite which is the Moon, male has its opposite in female and the mind its opposite in the body. In turn everything that exists has its male and female nature and this includes the Gods: Yao: his feminine name is Lordship, Sabaoth: his feminine name is Deity, Adonaios: his feminine name is Kingship, Elaios: his feminine name is Jealousy, Oraios: his feminine name is Wealth And Astaphaios: his feminine name is Sophia (Wisdom). These are the seven forces of the seven heavens of chaos which form the Aeons.

It is the female nature which creates, under the guidance of the male and this brings us to the Mystery of the Trinity. A person has several aspects which make up his whole, they are the mind, the spirit and the soul. The soul is encapsulated within the body, the soul is made of fire and the body; earth. The spirit animates the body and the mind controls all. 

This realm is mental, though it is perceived as physical. Nothing exists that is not in motion, everything is in a constant state of change. All matter is comprised of particles: atoms, protons, neutrons etc, all vibrating at different frequencies. Because this realm is mental, it can be affected by the mind and this is one form of magic.

If we picture something in our mind, a lamp for example; one part of us is able to view this lamp and this is known as the Me, the part that created the image is the female aspect and this is known as the I. Freud calls these the Ego and the Id and assigns them qualities in order to understand human behaviour but human behaviour arises from a lack of understanding of what and who we are and our purpose in this reality.

We are the soul within a body. We are not the body, the body is the vehicle in which we experience this world. The body has its wants and needs and has very powerful emotions. Human behaviour is simply the body following its natural animal urges, without the restraint of the mind. The mind can easily control the emotions, wants and needs of the body by willing it. The purpose of this life is to rule the body with the mind, to exert control where none exists and to become worthy of eternal life.

Being only mind and soul; the ways in which we can interact with this world are limited. We can affect things physically, that is by touching or moving. We can affect it verbally, by speaking or shouting, we can affect it with writing, with letters symbols and drawings and we can affect it with our minds.

Everything that we experience on Earth is experienced solely in the mind. Of course we feel the things that the body feels but it is the mind which has the experience. When we feel sorrow, the body reflects the sorrow, perhaps with tears but it is experienced only by the mind, it does not exist within the world. All suffering is done within the mind, all love is in the mind.

The most common way that we interact with the world is the spoken word. The vast majority of ordinary people pay little to no attention to the words that come out of their mouth and this is the cause of most of the ill in the world. The words that we speak have great power, they have the power to kill and the power to heal. Think of the suicides caused by jilted lovers, think of the speeches by megalomaniacs. Words not only affect the person or people to whom they are spoken but the very world itself.

It is important to remember Newton’s third Law or The Law of Cause and Effect which are one and the same. Every cause has its effect and every effect, its cause. Given the very limited ways in which we are able to interact with the world, almost all of the effects that ordinary people have on the world can be traced back to the spoken or written word. Yet they are spoken (cause) carelessly, with barely a thought to the consequences (effect) which might arise from them.

Matthew 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

The written word holds far more power than the spoken word and it is no coincidence that as we learn how to write we are taught how to spell. This is not merely semantics, the written word can have profound effects on the world in which we live. One might consider how many Christians there would be without the written words of The Bible, or how society would function without written laws.

The written word holds so much power that we obey a sign which informs us to keep off the grass without a second thought. It is so powerful that every notion we have about the world is passed on through writing. The very fabric of the reality of the world that we are in was weaved with the written word.

Where did we come from? We were taught the answer and shown The Big Bang Theory as proof. The Origin of Species is proof that we evolved. The Gregorian Calendar is proof of our position in time. Every single idea that we hold as truth comes from the written word.

Nothing is real and lasting until it is written down. A child does not exist until it is registered. Money is simply a concept until printed (or typed into a computer). The act of writing words is in and of itself an act of creation.

More powerful than the written word is the symbol and symbols include numbers. A symbol can represent an idea or an entire philosophy and numbers can explain the workings of unseen powers. The Baphomet is a representation of the entire beliefs of the Mystery Schools. The number seven is the number of God and the number of completion. Two symbols are easily able to convey the most mysterious and most powerful concepts known to man.

Numbers, while being symbols, also have their own nature and are the stuff that the world is made from. As aforementioned; the world is mental rather than physical and it is constructed according to mathematical principles. All of the beauty of nature comes from one simple formula: 1.618, The Golden Ratio.

Because the world is built from mathematics, the rules of mathematics apply to it and The Monty Hall Problem is one example of the real world application of maths. In The Double Slit Experiment we see that photons react differently depending on whether they are being observed, showing that the mind itself affects the physical aspects of reality itself.

The Mystery Schools are well aware of the power of symbols and they use them not only as a means of communication but as a means to control. Symbols are magical and they control the world. This will be the subject of the next article.

Libra Season

I have had some problems with the site over the last couple of weeks and haven’t been able to post about Libra or any of the astrological activity, but I will rectify that and get some posts out over the next couple of days. Watch this space, and thanks for your patience.

Part Two – Religion

There have always been Priests. Men placing themselves between the Creator and mankind, acting as an intermediary. The Priests have always ruled men in this way, forcing them to follow absurd practises, which are always contrary to the teachings of scripture, in order that their souls might be saved.

A glance at the Catholic faith will prove the hypocrisy of the teachings: One of the Commandments states Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. The Catholic church has many idols, many statues and many graven images, its very symbol is that of Christ being crucified. The Catholic Church violates the very Commandments of the teachings it supposedly follows.

The Catholic Church has deified Mary, the mother of Christ and refers to her as the Queen of Heaven. This title belongs to another deity entirely, she has many names but the most common is Isis. The Catholic Church has followed in the footsteps of the Priesthood of antiquity, it has used the Christian faith to promote itself and its true religion, in order to maintain control of the people.

This is true of all the religions, not merely the Catholics, though the Catholics have taken things to extreme lengths. The Bible clearly states Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Yet the head of the Catholic Church, who is a Jesuit is called Il Papa, or the Pope; meaning Father. Priests of all denominations of the Christian faith are called father, in defiance of the very scripture they claim to teach.

The Catholic Church, along with many others do not represent the religions that they claim to. Before Christianity existed there were religions which worshipped multiple Gods and these reach back into the beginnings of history. They are often called Pagan religions but this term now embodies many diverse and separate beliefs. The original religions were based upon the Gods who walked among us.

In the beginning we have the Christian God who created Adam and Eve. They were banished from the Garden of Eden and sent into the world to learn the consequences of the knowledge of good and evil that they had learned and He sent Angels to watch over them. The Angels were attracted to human women and made a pact to mate with them. Genesis 6:2 the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

It was these very Fallen Angels and the offspring that their mating with human women brought, that form the basis of the so called Pagan religions. The Bible speaks at length of the fallen Angels and more specifically of Lucifer, who is often known as Satan, though this is not a name but a term meaning adversary.

Lucifer is the leader of the Angels who rebelled against God. He is the most powerful and perfect being that God created. He dwelt with God and was adorned with all manner of precious jewels and was adored by the angels for his perfection. While he sat with God, he remained loyal but the moment he left His side, he succumbed to pride and wanted to be worshipped as God is.

Lucifer and the Fallen Angels are spoken of at great length in scripture. In the Book of Enoch, the leaders of the 200 fallen angels are named and the forbidden knowledge that they gave to humans is listed. The Fallen Angels are known by different names in different cultures because they were translated from the original Hebrew into the scholarly languages of different nations; Greek and Latin, in order that the meaning of their names would be retained.

The knowledge that was given to men explains exactly how the world came to be and how its different parts function. It tells of the laws of this realm and how they can be used in order to avoid the consequences of ones actions. It explains the Mystery of the Trinity and the journey of the soul. It is a guide on how to achieve immortality using knowledge rather than the way God intended.

The knowledge is absolutely real and this explains why the world is run by the followers of the Mystery Schools, who are todays magicians: an image search through Google for famous Masons will show this to be true. The Mystery Schools believe that Adam and Eve were held in bondage by God in the Garden of Eden and that Lucifer freed them of His tyranny:

Emerald Tablet two Far in a past time, lost in the space time, the Children of Light looked down on the world. Seeing the children of men in their bondage, bound by the force that came from beyond. Knew they that only by freedom from bondage could man ever rise from the Earth to the Sun.

The Bible tells that man was created in Gods image and the Angels were ordered to worship the image of God but some refused:

In the Book of Adam we find 12.1 the devil began to cry with forced tears and the devil told Adam, “O Adam, all the greed and the anger and all the grief of my heart are directed against you because it was through you that I fell from my dwellings, (it was) by you that I was alienated from my own throne. My wings were more numerous than those of the Cherubim, and I concealed myself under them. Because of you, now my feet walk on the earth, which I would never have believed.”

And further:

 14.1 Then Michael came; he summoned all the troops of angels and told them, “Bow down before the likeness and the image of the divinity.”

Lucifer believed that because of his splendor man should worship him but man was made in the image of God and because of this the Angels were attracted to men.

 Book of Enoch 6:2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them.

The Angels or the Gods of antiquity, were worshipped by men because of the knowledge they held and the Gods stayed among them in order to mate with them. Over time the divinity faded from the offspring of the Angels and human women and they were overcome with darkness and began to practise evil things. Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Emerald Tablets one: Gradually from the Kingdoms of Atlantis passed waves of consciousness that had been one with me, only to be replaced by spawn of a lower star.

This is what lead to the flood in the account given in both the Bible and the Emerald Tablets. These are the things that no Priest will ever discuss. The Priesthood is interested only in power over men, they have no interest in the journey of the soul and they have no fear of the wrath of God because they commune with their Gods and worship them appropriately.

The teachings of the Priesthood have nothing at all to do with the teachings of the Bible. The Priests teach one verse at a time and explain the meanings as they go. When read from beginning to end, The Bible has a wholly different message, which is revealed very slowly one chapter at a time.

From the beginning; man has always been tempted by knowledge. The oldest recorded lie is told at the very start of our history: Genesis 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Adam and Eve lived in paradise and were immortal until they were tempted with knowledge. The Priests have also been tempted with knowledge as have the initiates of the Mystery School. The knowledge they have is real, as was the knowledge that Adam and Eve received but as with the latter, no good will come of it.

It is a simple thing to deceive a man, show him the truth of one thing and he can be lead anywhere with the promise of more. The knowledge that the Priests and initiates have was given to them in exchange for their worship. They will have what their hearts desire in this life and will follow the ways that they have been taught. Their souls will progress in defiance of the law but eventually they will be held to account. John 10:1  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

It is the job of the Priests to keep men from knowing the Creator, to fill him with nonsense about the ways of the Divine. Priests preach that souls go to purgatory, a made up place with no reference in any scripture. They teach that the living can help a soul move on to Heaven through prayer and donations to the church. Scripture teaches the exact opposite Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

What is this knowledge that I keep mentioning? It is the practice of magic, it is using the existing Law that all things must obey against itself in order to bypass the consequences that one would ordinarily face. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, this is Newton’s third Law. Isaac Newton was a well-known Mystic and the so called Third Law of Physics came from Hermes not Newton. The Law does indeed exist and cannot be broken but by using higher laws against the lower laws; consequences can be escaped.

The magic that is practised all around the world every single day has many layers and much of it is associated with a certain god or gods. I will explain the whole process and reveal the secrets which the Priests and initiates hold sacred but to do so I must first explain their beliefs and the way in which we interact with this world. That will be the subject of the next article.

The Beginning: Atlantis

As we travel back in time, seeking our own history and the meaning of our existence here on Earth, all roads lead to Atlantis and the God’s who walked there among mortal men. It is unfortunate that historians and archaeologists alike; dismiss all mention of God’s as myth and legend and with them the tales that are recorded in ancient texts because there is a mountain of evidence to support them as being the true history of man.

In this series I will present a timeline of the history of Mankind within the tale that ancient texts and tablets tell us, along with the true purpose of our life here on Earth. This is a tale which is known to only a few initiates of the Mystery Schools and the worldwide Priesthood, both of which have existed since time immemorial, though in several different incarnations.

This is a tale of God’s and magic and the mysteries of the soul, whose boundaries encompass all religions, all nations and all peoples. It is an astonishing story which explains the otherwise inexplicable architecture and monuments all around the world. It is a story which does not exist anywhere and which can only be learned by reading the sacred texts of all of the religions, sages and philosophers throughout the ages. This is a monumental task and one which has taken me decades to complete and which I will now present for your perusal:

The best place to begin is always at the beginning: Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. All religions are in agreement with this, as are the texts of the Mystery Schools, while Science postulates that intelligence and order came from an explosion of nothing; which violates every known law of Physics while defying common sense.

It seems that all of the people of the world once knew how the world began. Almost all religions have a male living God as the creator of all and they all tell a similar story. In most religions we find the Trinity of three God’s in one, instructions to love and not commit evil and the threat of punishment for wrongdoing. It is only in very recent times that the majority have stopped believing in God and this is due entirely to ignorance, there is proof that the God’s exist, all around the world.

In 360 BC Plato wrote two dialogues; one called CRITIAS and another called TIMAEUS. In these works Plato gives an account of Atlantis. He tells of its creation, its location, its reason for being, how its inhabitants lived and how it was ultimately destroyed. He places the date of its destruction at 9,000 BC.

In the dead centre of the world, in the heart of Egypt lies The Great Pyramid. Long before man had discovered America; the Mediterranean Sea had been named; its very name means middle of the earth; medius meaning middle and terra meaning earth. The Great Pyramid is an enigma to the modern world, whose means of construction is still unknown.

Egypt is known as the land of darkness and has a fascinating history of its own. Although Egyptologists as a whole insist that there are no historical records which give a true account of history, the truth is that the historical accounts given by the ancient Egyptians are so fantastic that they are simply dismissed as fiction.

The Egyptians have a history of being ruled by living God’s and this is the main reason for the dismissal of recorded history. The God Thoth was the Egyptian God of Wisdom and Thoth was born in Atlantis which was described by Plato as being an island larger than Libya and Asia put together, meaning that it would have spanned the whole of the Atlantic Ocean, from South America to the Mediterranean.

Thoth gives his own account of his origins in The Emerald Tablets. Thoth the Atlantean is also known as Hermes Trismegistus, meaning Thrice Great Hermes (for having Three Parts of the Wisdom of the Whole Universe) and is said to have reincarnated as several other prominent historical figures throughout the ages. Although this may sound like the stuff of fantasy, the texts and teachings of both Thoth and Hermes contain knowledge and wisdom that modern science is based upon and explains that which science is still debating.

What is known to the modern world as the Theory of Relativity, was given to mankind by Hermes thousands of years before Einstein was born. While the existence of atoms was still being debated in the early 1900’s, Hermes had not only taught of their existence but had explained how new atoms are formed.

The term Hermetically Sealed, comes from Hermes, whose teachings are well known to all of the Mystery Schools and ALL of the prominent scholars and scientists of the past several hundred years, whose works were based on those of Hermes. The saying comes from the secrecy with which his works were taught. The lips of wisdom are closed except to ears of understanding.

 A quick glance at the Emerald Tablets will leave the reader wondering what any of it means, as is also the case with The Kybalion or any other work by Thrice Great Hermes. This is deliberate and a great deal  of study is needed before their meaning becomes clear. Initiates of the Mystery Schools are prepared for many years before the secrets of these texts are fully revealed to them and rightly so because the secrets they contain are dangerous in the wrong hands.

The wisdom of Thoth and Hermes is the same knowledge that the Book of Enoch describes thus 9:6 Thou seest what Azâzêl hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn.

The Gods of the ancient world were known by different names in different parts of the world but they were all the same Gods. Who Enoch calls Azâzêl, the Egyptians called Thoth and the Romans called Hermes. These Gods were not, as is so often repeated by historians, avatars of the planets; they were real beings who walked among men and ruled them.

It is a fallacy that the further back in time we travel, the less intelligent men were. A quick Google search of ancient architecture will leave anyone wondering how such structures were built, their construction being far beyond the skill of modern man. The Great Pyramid is only one of thousands of structures around the world that we are not capable of building. The knowledge of the modern world pales in comparison to that of the ancients.

While from Plato we only have 9,000 year old, second hand information with regards to Atlantis, Thoth claims to have lived there. Thoth refers to himself as a child of light and a both a sun and son of the morning, he refers to his brethren as being star born and sons of the morning. In the Christian Bible the Devil is called Lucifer, Son of the Morning, Lucifer translating as Lightbearer. Light is the universal metaphor for knowledge and it was Lucifer who tempted Adam and Eve with the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden.

While there is not room in this article to compare all of the gods, or Gods of the different religions, I will go into great detail in those which follow. It is enough to say that Atlantis was the home of the God’s who walked among us and that those God’s were the Fallen Angels described in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.

What happened on Atlantis is unclear, though we can be sure that it was destroyed. The Bible tells us that the flood was brought because human women had mated with the Fallen Angels and that DNA had been corrupted. Noah was the last man with pure DNA and God chose him to build his ark in order that his DNA and those of the animals he kept would survive.

According to Thoth; the Atlanteans had become corrupted (Downward into the darkness turned the thoughts of the Atlanteans) as their consciousness was lowered over time. He contends that Atlantis was sunk and every trace of its existence wiped from the Earth with a flood brought by the seven Lords of the Cycles who dwell in the Halls of Amenti, in response to the actions of the Atlanteans.

There is clear evidence that a worldwide flood took place at some point in the past and the sinking of a vast continent sat in the middle of the Atlantic ocean would certainly have an effect on sea levels. Looking at Google Earth; we can see that from the North Atlantic on the west side of Africa, travelling east, nothing but desert exists all the way over to Saudi Arabia, as though all of the vegetation was simply swept away.

In Plato’s dialogue: Timaeus he mentions that the Straits of Heracles (Gibraltar) were impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island. There is evidence that this mud reached further than the Straits of Gibraltar and a Google image search for mud flood shows strange pictures from all around the world of old buildings half buried by mud.

There are also catacombs all over the world where the skeletons of the dead were buried together in the hundreds of thousands, as though a great catastrophe took place and mass burials were necessary. History has a period that we call The Dark Ages which describes hundreds of years where nothing happened and no advances were made and then suddenly, we moved forward again.

We have had several changes in our calendars over the past thousand years or so and it is entirely possible that the mud flood and the sinking of Atlantis were not as far back in history as we have been led to believe.

What we can be certain of is that our ancestors had knowledge that we no longer have. We can also be sure that a civilisation far more advanced than our own existed not so very long ago and that some of the knowledge from that society survived.

Thoth relates that when only the Temple of Light remained of Atlantis, he was instructed to evacuate and head to Egypt. The Emerald Tablets describe how he taught the men of Khem (Egypt) all of the secrets that he knew. Thoth claims to have built the Great Pyramid himself as a marker of the path to the Halls of Amenti and the way to eternal life.

Whether or not the Pyramid leads to Amenti is not for me to say but the texts which were written by Thoth and Hermes certainly do hold knowledge and wisdom. This wisdom is used by the Mystery Schools, including Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, Theosophy, Thelema and Ariosophy.

In order to understand the knowledge contained in the writings of Thoth and Hermes, an understanding of who we are and where we are is needed. I will go into more detail in the next article.
