Venus Female Symbol Sky

The symbol for ‘female/woman’ stands for ‘Venus’.

Most people don’t realize that Venus is actually represented by a Black woman (even wild rice or Black rice is called Venus).

Reminds me of:

I have more to say on the subject but I’m too tired, maybe I’ll fill this in at a future date.

Bananarama – Venus (Lyrics)

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire

Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad
BLACK AS THE DARK NIGHT SHE WAS
Got what no one else had
Wah!

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire

Venus

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name
Wah!

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire

Venus was her name

Yeah baby she’s got it
Yeah baby she’s got it
Yeah baby she’s got it
Yeah baby she’s got it

Black is beautiful, terrifying and mystifying. The oldest still living (in culture) ‘dark/Black’ Goddess the Earth has: Kali (meaning ‘Black’ and ‘Time’) notice over time she has become Blue and light skinned as part of the incorporation into the later patriarchal post-Vedic Hinduism and the dominance of the male triad (who become the male singular in monotheistic religion).

Spring Equinox and its Meanings

According to the sky we in the northern hemisphere are about to enter a new year (tomorrow 04.30am UT/GMT). The exact time is dependent on your location e.g. whether you’re in the northern or southern hemisphere and whether you are in night/day time. Solstices (Winter and Summer) and equinoxes (Spring and Autumn) aren’t on the same day each year so akin to the phases of the moon (and effects of) and astrology there is a cusp i.e. usually a 3 day period but can be upto a week. For example when people look forward to/are wary of the full moon they should take into account the day before and after the event as well, but the cusp is also a proviso for comparing calendars. Dates/times vary depending on the calendar/system used too since their reference markers are different – solar, lunar, lunisolar calendars – and for people into astrology the type of system used e.g. what we consider ‘regular’ tropical astrology in the West or sidereal astrology. The signs start/end at different times difference between these systems.

The seasons as we experience them in our tiny section of the Earth have their own temperaments (we and our brethren plant and animal species that we know as ‘life on earth’ live generally on the surface of a planet, some further down like deep water creatures but even they are far from immune to the goings on of people above them, and if we go up a few miles without aeronautic equipment we’re practically useless and without further equipment we’re dead meat & unlikely to exist at all in the cold reaches of space. Quite marvelous and ironic really isn’t it, especially since mentally we haven’t come that far from thinking our planetary neighbours revolve around us and the rest of humanity let alone everybody/thing else still doesn’t really factor into our everyday, individual lives.) For example Spring in weather (effects of) comes earlier for some than others and some countries start celebrating in what many would consider Winter but it’s really in our self-imposed calendars that the year ends and begins at the deepest/darkest point i.e. Dec/Jan.

The ‘midwinter’ (predominantly in December) festivals most commonly known are from the Roman period, though the Romans and Greeks are additionally well known for their juxtaposed belief systems and when Christianity won the day it the Feast of the Unconquered Sun became known as the birth of a Jesus [a] Christ. Celebrations on and around the Winter Solstice are generally about the day/light defeating the night/dark, the sun chasing away the dark, it will return triumphant – like all those beliefs about day and night the sun ‘falling’ ‘rising’ ‘sleeping’ ‘dying’ ‘being eaten’ when it doesn’t, we just view it that way; this is the yearly rather than daily dose of fear of death and the dark. Divine, semi-divine and illuminated, sainted beings aren’t haloed for nothing; their auras are depicted as radiant, particularly the crown ‘chakra’ associated with crystal/christos higher consciousness energy.

The twisted use of the year end/new year as I likened them HERE to April Fools Day is strange firstly because 31st Dec/1st Jan (whether Julian or Gregorian) is not an Earth or astronomical end/new year other than saying the days will slowly get longer from here, but it’s hardly a comfortable starting point for seasonal activity and the ‘body clocks’ of flora and fauna (why festivals at that time use evergreens – they’re practical and have become our symbolic champions over what we fear). Secondly the twist was entrenched in the annual customs throughout Europe that for short time turned the class system on its head with rich people (masters/clergy) acting out role reversal with their servants/lessers. All a bit of ‘good clean fun’, benevolence, generous tokenism and goodwill apparently but of course a major trick/test of character would be if the servants cum masters could restrain themselves because they’d be servants again soon enough. A prank/practical joke is only fun to an extent and you’re not the butt otherwise it’s just hazing/bullying.

Midwinter and Winter events in general are about sacrifice, usually blood sacrifice which the ‘cult of Saturnalia’ has become known for, and easily linked to the additional slaughtering of farm animals who would be an extra burden in cold times and easier to store as body parts. (Giving up something for Lent being a much softer, socially acceptable version and on a more regular basis substituting bread and wine for body and blood though many people aren’t afraid of supporting their local or supermarket ‘friendly’ butchers.) What are Spring festivals about? Renewal, birth and rebirth (and of course in everyday terms all festivals are about partying, eating/drink until you feel or are sick, merriment, doing embarrassing things you might regret later if you remember or are made to remember, having as much sex as possible etc).

There are other or extra ways of commemorating the new year however; preparing for the end/new fiscal year and focusing on the annual government announcement of the new budget for example. Midwinter and Spring in current times both constitute a new year in a significant way and both involve scrimping/saving/spending/splurging. Ever wondered by the tax year ends/begins in March-April? The following quote is from a blogger who has done an easy to understand summary:

WHY DOES THE TAX YEAR BEGIN ON 6 APRIL?

The tax year starts on 6 April and runs through to the following 5 April. To find out why we need to go back a l o n g way.

Just over 2000 years ago, in AD 14, the first Roman Emperor Augustus died. Among his many legacies was the calendar we use today.

It was initially devised by his predecessor Julius Caesar. By the time Gaius Julius came to power the Roman calendar was in a mess. One reason was that it was a secret religious document controlled by the priest class and not subject to outside scrutiny. Their job was to make the calendar work and determine the dates of religious holidays, festivals, and the days when business could and could not be conducted. But they had done it badly for many years and Caesar inherited a calendar that was out of step with the seasons by a quarter of a year.

He called in an Egyptian astronomer Sosigenes and decided to put things right. He added 90 days to the year 46 BC to bring the calendar into line with the seasons so that the spring equinox was on 25 March and the year began on 1 January as it was supposed to do. Caesar decreed that in future the calendar would follow the solar year of 365.25 days divided into twelve months of 30 or 31 days apart from the 28 day February to which would be added the leap day every fourth year.

Two years later, on the Ides of March 44 BC (15 March), Julius Caesar was assassinated on the steps of the Senate. As was their wont, the priests who were left in charge of the calendar mistook the instructions and added the extra day every third year (they counted inclusively 1-2-3-4 so to them the third year was called the fourth).

This error went unnoticed for more than thirty years and was finally corrected by Julius’s successor, Augustus. By then the seventh month had been named after Julius and on Augustus’s death in AD 14 the eighth month was named for him.

Apart from that one change the amended Julian calendar with the same months of the same lengths and a leap year every fourth year has run continuously since the year 8 BC.

But one small correction was needed. The Julian Calendar assumes the year is 365.25 days long – hence the extra leap day every four years. In fact the year is very slightly shorter than that. So over many centuries the calendar began to get more and more out of step with the seasons. Towards the end of the 16th century it was almost two weeks ahead of the Sun. Pope Gregory XIII decided to correct it. He took ten days out of the calendar – which fixed the spring equinox around 20/21 of March – and decreed that in future there would no Leap Year in century years unless they were also divisible by 400. Taking out three days every 400 years would almost precisely align the new Gregorian calendar with the time it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun.

The change was made in October 1582 and much of Europe soon followed. But the Protestant UK refused to obey a Papal decree and no change was made in the UK or in what were then its Colonies and Dominions. So our calendar got further out of step with the seasons and of course our dates were different from much of Europe.

It took nearly 200 years before the British Government decided to make the necessary changes. The Calendar Act of 1751 decreed that Wednesday 2 September 1752 would be followed by Thursday 14 September thus removing eleven days and bringing the calendar back where it should be. It also provided that the new year would start on 1 January. Many people had reverted to starting it on the old Roman equinox day of 25 March. You can still find eighteenth century books published early in the year with two dates such as ‘1724/25’.

But there was a problem. Tax was due over a whole year. So if there were 11 fewer days in 1752 tax would be due 11 days early and over a shorter period. At the time the tax year began on that Roman spring equinox day, 25 March. It was called Lady Day and was one of four quarter days when rent and other payments fell due. So the Government decided that the 1753 tax year would begin eleven days later on 5 April to give the full 365 days over which tax was due.

That is still one day short of its present starting date.

That extra day was added in 1800. That year would have been a Leap Year under the old calendar but not under the new Gregorian Calendar as century years (except those divisible by 400) were no longer leap years. Again there were protests. If people were denied their extra day of 29 February then they would be paying the same taxes but over a shorter period than they expected. Once again the Government gave in and extended the tax year by a day so it ended on 5 April and the next one began on 6 April 1800. And that is where it has remained. In 1900 no-one demanded the extra day for the tax year and the question did not arise in 2000 as it was divisible by 400 and so was a leap year.

An apt example of British changes to the calendar for tax purposes in alignment with Spring activity in it’s dominion was in India. Following the seasons is a farming must and India was and still is has major agricultural industry. Savvy conquerors know that it’s easier to incorporate and metamorphose on already existing cultures if they want longevity, so the Hindu New Year festival (beginning of April, after Holi – a Spring festival) was best to start the financial year at the same time. Current thought tends to offer up the argument that Winter is better for New Year and selling to consumers and Spring for taxes and budgeting but as we can see it doesn’t stop some people being able to party and Indians have reasons for major festivity all year round. I don’t know where they get the energy, our populace is lethargic in comparison.

The meaning of ‘Lady Day’ is interesting too. In the ecclesiastic calendar Lady Day is also the Feast of the Annunciation (where the young teen virgin Mary who’d been married to a much older Joseph was told by a voice – don’t know whether internal or external – and we assume by the Christian ‘God’ (though some say by an angel) rather than any other of the gods at the time, Zeus for example (the rampant rapist and notoriously underhanded traditionally depicted big thunderous guy in the sky, bearded, robed in White archetype who disguised himself as Alcmene’s husband to sleep with her, her actual husband returning later and she apparently becoming pregnant by both in one night wasn’t above ensuring that his children would have demi-god powers such as conspiring with Athena to get the babe nursed by Hera and later he audaciously became known as Hera-Kleos/Hercules) or anyone with projecting, possessing and penetrating capabilities that she was carrying a special child. (The Abrahamic religions disagree on whether he was called/or even was a/the Son of God and whether he was a/the Messiah) and from what we surmise it was a great honourable vessel role rather than obligation/duty. I’d hate to think what would have happened to her had she miscarried or had complications). Jesus died/was resurrected at the same time of year.

People tend to believe that the announcement was of Mary’s conception therefore leading to the December birth date, there is controversy over whether that was his birth date. Regardless of whether or not people believe the story to be factual as it is told with or without the omissions/additions/changes over time, or bible numerical coding being more significant, theoretically there could be upto a few months leeway since it’s unclear whether the announcement was at conception or after (and assuming Joseph hadn’t made sure to consummate the marriage as most couples are eager to do regardless of period in history, married or not). I note that many females (especially those in the early years of menstruation when it’s irregular) don’t know they’re pregnant near conception, and conception to birth isn’t exactly nine months. Overall it’s very well aligned with the astronomical markers and in tune with older sol/sun sowing/harvest/sacrifice rites/ritual/ceremony/belief/symbolism (older religions from/stemming from the cradles of civilisation – Egypt/Mesopotamia/India – have the birth/death/resurrection of a divinity story too).

25th March (Lady Day and Feast of Annunciation) is also the fifth day of Holy Week which is before or overlapping Eastre – Easter being a series of festivals interestingly based on the lunar rather than solar calendar and associated with goddess culture. Bear in mind that Easter was and in some branches still is in line with Passover, when Jewish people broke away from Egypt.

EDIT – The Feast of Annunciation has been transferred this year 2016 from 25th March to 4th April but Christmas hasn’t been changed to 4th Jan 2017 😉 . (Strangely the usual Easter end of term school holidays have been transferred too from the two week period including Good Friday and Easter Monday national bank holidays to the following two weeks so 4-8th and 11-15th April off instead.)

Intriguingly enough the legal year previously began in Spring too; the traditions it was/is celebrated with, the dress, and the educational background and professional status of the ‘pillars’/’fathers’ (not specifically referring to the US ‘founding fathers’) and the translating scribes of law, education and science makes you wonder why those and church/religion are thought of as separate entities/ideals.

Now the opening of the legal/civil year is in October and the government summer recess takes place within the end of year and beginning of year period.

England

In England, the year is divided into four terms:
Michaelmas term – from October to December
Hilary term – from January to April
Easter term – from April to May, and
Trinity term – from June to July.

Between terms, the Courts are in vacation, and no trials or appeals are heard in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. The legal terms apply to the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme courts only,[1] and so have no application to the Crown Court, county courts, or magistrates’ courts. The longest vacation period is between July and October. The dates of the terms are determined in law by a Practice Direction in the Civil Procedure Rules. The Hilary term was formerly from January 11 to 31, during which superior courts of England were open.[2]

Start of the legal year

The legal year commences at the beginning of October, with a ceremony dating back to the Middle Ages in which the judges arrive in a procession from the Temple Bar to Westminster Abbey for a religious service, followed by a reception known as the Lord Chancellor’s breakfast, which is held in Westminster Hall. Although in former times the judges walked the distance from Temple to Westminster, they now mostly arrive by car. The service is held by the Dean of Westminster with the reading performed by the Lord Chancellor.

The ceremony has been held continuously since the Middle Ages, with the exception of the years 1940 to 1946 because of World War II. In 1953 it was held in St Margaret’s Church because Westminster Abbey was still decorated for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Ireland

In Ireland, the year is, like England, divided into four terms:
Michaelmas term – from October to December
Hilary term – from January to April
Easter term – from April to May, and
Trinity term – from June to July.

With a Christmas, Easter, Whit and Long Vacation between them respectively. The Michaelmas term, and legal year, is opened with a service in St. Michan’s Church, Dublin attended by members of the Bar and Law Society who then adjourn to a breakfast given in the King’s Inns.

United States

The United States Supreme Court follows part of the legal year tradition, albeit without the elaborate ceremony. The Court’s year-long term commences on the first Monday in October (and is simply called “October Term”), with a Red Mass the day before. The court then alternates between “sittings” and “recesses” and goes into final recess at the end of June.

Looks like Midwinter mass comes early for some people, they look like a parade of Santa Claus’.

Very few people do know how Tradition is supposed to go. There’s a certain mysterious ridiculousness about it by its very nature – once there was a reason why you had to [insert superstition/custom] but now you did it because that’s what was Done.

– from ‘Jingo’ by Terry Practhett

To me 31st Dec/1st Jan isn’t and end/beginning since it’s such a mixup – who says the end has to be the beginning anyway? What no rest for the not-so-wicked? Maybe God can manage resting on one day of the week (some think Saturnday others Friday i.e. Venus or Frigg Day – evening to Saturday evening others Sunday) but I couldn’t put up with the principle of duality and opposing archetypes let alone for eons through the belief systems of all major post-Vedic/cradle of civilization peoples. It’s like the Fools Day but in the Winter and the joke’s on who? (Even more so with weather modification technology, pollution and daily life stresses playing havoc with our environmental and ‘body clocks’.)

Fireball in the sky

I’m noting this one because it was witnessed by so many people and without the need of best conditions and equipment. In the cold, witching hour of 17th March Mum (and many others) noticed something streak past low in the sky.

I’m sad I missed it but Mum initially mistook it for lightening and when thunder didn’t follow she didn’t think much of it given that we’ve experienced that a few times here. What some people are calling the ‘St Patrick’s Day Green Meteor’ she and camera footage saw as White though it does have a greenish/yellow hue in photographs.

Very large fireball reported by public was first noticed by our Church Crookham station at 3:16 this morning. It momentarily overloaded the camera with light and with second video we will be able to triangulate and calculate the orbit soon.

Preliminary calculations estimate the brightens to be around -7 mag and explosion -14 mag. The event lasted just a couple of seconds.

Turns out that many UKMON’s cameras captured the event than previously thought, 8 cameras in total.

An estimated terminal altitude is just 30-34km!

https://www.ukmeteornetwork.co.uk/2016/03/huge-fireball-17-march-2016-at-316/

There are more cameras on the above site and footage on Youtube, not quite as publicly exciting as when people watch the sun cameras and see major and strange flares, and once in the past few years it even looked like a piece broke off, but not as many people look at those.

Saturn and Kali or Ka & L

I’ve written about Father Time/Grim Reaper going back to Mother Time and hence the Dark Mother, the world has seen her in many forms, a prehistoric goddess and the oldest living version is Kali (Black, Time – and carrier of many weapons but the sickle one of staples) from old Hinduism (modern Hinduism to me being Vedic Hinduism aka from approx 1500BC.) I’ve also written about the feminine triad predating the masculine triads we see from/following the cradles of civilization ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and India. I tend to refer to the Indian side of things most because their customs/beliefs/knowledge is still living, twisted and morphed over time, but still there so for me it’s easier to see the changes.

The feminine triad came from Lalita who split into three major forms; Bala, Lalita and Kali. The Daughter, the Mother and the Dark [grand]Mother/Crone. Lalita is seen as the ultimate Mother Goddess/cosmic Mother who in texts that aren’t so popular even the current pantheon admit pre-dates and is more powerful than them. I found Valdimir Nabokov’s book ‘Lolita’ to be a poignant version of this (and not romantic at all as many think it, but probably wouldn’t if it was them/their daughter) and how they took over the Earth, but in a personalized/individual rather than cosmic form.

Shortened versions of Lalita is Lal or L and in later religions people have highlighted the ‘el’ (Mum has had people say ‘elle’ to her as well – her name being Lalita). ‘El’ is both significant and frequent in the later triad of dominant world religion – Judaism, Islam and Christianity but it is usually in plural form.

Going back to Kali/Kala/Kalika though, given the spread of Indo-European languages from the India side of the Indus (and pushing aside languages already in India such as Tamil) we can see the use of Kal in many places. For example Cailleach of the Gaelic Scottish Celts (pronounced Kall-yack) whose name means ‘old woman’ and commonly ‘hag’ or ‘crone’ both of those terms associated with magic/being a witch and being a ‘dark mother’. Cailleach was/is a Mother Goddess figure. (On a sidenote Ireland had a goddess called Brigid – a number of spellings – who was later incorporated as one of the Christian saints.)

California after the Spanish story of Calafia/Califia a warrior queen of Black women is another interesting one, though bear in mind being Spanish it is a later version and significantly that story includes the use of her in the war between Islam and Christianity. Also California’s flag has a dark/Black bear (remember the bear is one of the oldest symbols of Mother Goddess) and a pentagram. Later there was the establishment of the Golden Gate Bridge and Los Angeles with its Holy Holly Wood (remember witches don’t need/have wands, it’s a phallic symbol).

Where does Saturn fit into this?

Saturn is the planet represented by Kali which makes sense since she is Mother Time. In later religion it became Kronos/Chronos and was most widely known with Graeco-Roman religion(s) (pre-Roman Catholic & Christian period but remember that he was a titan so harking back to an older race, pre-dating the Greek gods who conquered them). If you’ve seen masonic artwork of the zodiac often found in divination books (and to some freemasonic symbolism is also called ‘alchemy’) you’ve probably seen pictures of the gods in front of their representative planet and with other symbols around them. For some reason none of those are coming up in image searches I’ve been doing but here’s an interesting yet simplistic one:

Chronos Kronos Capricorn Aquarius

Chronos was both the ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius but that changed later on with Uranus taking Aquaman. The water bearer Aquarius used to just be a vase pouring water (over to Pisces) in both old Greek and Hindu zodiacs (potentially confusing for the Hindus given their girls and women carry very heavy clay pots of water on their heads short and long distance, and could break their necks but like Chronos, Capricorn/Baphomet and the rest the water bearer became male even though the job is considered too low for them).

This one was more like the ones I originally saw:

Greek Zodiac Wheel

7 planets at their time including the sun and our moon

I saw similar when researching my star sign Capricorn, whose ruler is Saturn (and whose day is Saturday) and who is represented by the Devil (commonly signifying materialism and base desires) in the tarot cards, the Devil being the goat headed satyr Baphomet with the circled pentagram. (Baphomet, one of the names being ‘Black Goat’, has very interesting symbolism and history of worship too going back to the Knights Templar, Baphomet being a Dark Goddess. Remember going back further Kali is one of the Mahavidyas or Dasha Vidyas, the Mahavidyas being 9 forms and the Dahsa being 10 since it counts the bigger unsplit form. This was long before the ‘Satan’ and the ‘Nine Angels’ connection which people jump to immediately and remember ‘Satan’ is from the Muslim word ‘Shaytan’ meaning a class of jinn-smokeless fire beings.) Interestingly Capricorn isn’t a regular goat, it’s a sea-goat – part land/part water animal and the water part being magical/mythical. The significance of water beings on this water planet Earth is something I might go into in a later post.

Saturn (and the other planets/stars) have come a long way from their goddess associations, Saturn’s Mother Goddess being the fiercest, most protective, most aware/punisher of injustice Kali Maa who has sadly become the object of many people’s (and Shiv’s) desires for her near nudity, blood and raw power. ‘The blood is the life’ goes the well-known phrase particularly menstrual blood despite it’s taboo is modern religions making women dirty and even evil, untouchable, not allowed to pray, go in ‘houses of god’, touch men even shake hands etc yet modern Hindu statues that apparently bleed are revered in the utmost and the red/pink (or ash) marks on the head of people symbolize that though ironically the coloured powder for women is made of toxic substances and the men’s one not. And it’s not just the blood – it’s the electricity – including the spinal chakra electricity (later called ‘serpent’) of kundalini, something some people are scared of and so call evil, and the creative energy nowadays known as sexual energy. More specifically when it becomes reproductive in sexual intercourse. Remember that in Earth root cultures – pre-modern Hinduism (and incorporated/twisted into it) – there is a focus on feminine androgyny i.e. asexuality and being able to self-produce, and how those who came to this planet on sailboats (possibly space ships) raped the dark woman with dark curly hair of the Earth by controlling her sexuality and making her frenzied and thereby taking over and made the ‘original feminine’ into a vessel and all her children as part of their school (like fish). Again another subject for another day.

One of misconceptions that I really dislike about the Kali-Saturn connection is that is brings up the later Shiv connection, the later god whom now Kali is apparently an ‘aspect’ of and so sexually enamoured with that she wants his creative juices even after she kills him. Her killing of demons is something she apparently enjoys (rather than just being furious at and sickened by, especially after witnessing her children/creations hurt and a popular sin is to rape females in front of Mother Goddess statues/in their templates to show the Mother Goddess means nothing, is nothing and has no power) and then takes part in necrophilia with his penis being portrayed on a mighty scale. This ‘frenzy’ is something that comes with modern Hinduism. Shiv and his pantheon being the usurpers means that he then became the Creator Destroyer, the Lord of the Dance (and lover/participant of wrestling), the Black One instead of her (even the mass statues of his penis which is prayed to separately to whole statues of him is coloured Black and significant in Islam too as a cornerstone of their religion that they revere and housed in Mecca the Black cube). It’s ironic because when I first heard about CERN proposing to build the LHC in search of/to prove the existence of the Higgs Boson aka the ‘God Particle’ I read up on said particle and even from the basic descriptions/rudimentary maths of its spin/movement I thought to myself in horrified surprise “they’re trying to build a portal for him”. The door/portal bit made sense to me but the ‘him’ being Shiv was a strange thought because anyone who knows religion/culture knows he doesn’t need a portal, he and his ilk are already here and took up residence in the Himalayas (though bear in mind it’s also a/awaiting punishment to be trapped in and under mountains) (the reason why I thought of him is one I’ll unlikely go into). At the grand LHC unveiling though, what was standing there – a donated statue of Shiv from India. I’m not sure if it really has anything to do with the God particle or Shiv but the laser like spirals they’ve unleashed into the sky worry people.

Now the ‘Saturn Cult’ as many researchers religion, freemasonry, myth and history call it is something very cruel and sinister, the victimizer rather than the slayer of the victimizer. It’s taken the blackness and morphed it into Black/dark = fear and evil, taken the natural wild/natural nudity and made it into both erotica and shame which leads to the taking the reproductive/creative of ability of blood and electricity and made it into rampant, uncontrolled and forced sexuality i.e. rape/sex abuse/prostitution/sexual murder/ritualistic abuse and vampirism/blood drinking.

There are many ‘Black’ associations in Freemasonry (although there are many ‘White’ too for the light and dark, good vs evil theatre where they play all sides and even switch back and forth e.g. the checkerboard pattern) – but the one most important here being the Black Sun. Some see that as the occult in general – the hidden – and esoteric, but it sounds more specific than that and perhaps indicates Dark Star instead.

I’ve never really thought that the sky was ‘right’ – there’s something very unreal about it me. I’ve also never been able to ‘get’ the constellations – it should be like cloud watching with someone and saying ‘hey look there’s a _____’ and then the person with you goes ‘oh yeah I see it’, perhaps they squint a bit first but it’s not too hard to imagine. Constellations though don’t even look like what they’re ‘supposed’ even when you look at the join-the-dot diagrams and even less so when the detailed drawings of the characters are superimposed. In my last post I mentioned that I always imagined the sky as sunset/sunrise (dawn/dusk) rather than Blue and cloudy and then I found similar thoughts in other cultures leading upto the ‘twilight’ description in a recent (very well written) fiction fantasy book. Part of my annoyance with ‘landmarks’ in the sky/outer space might be because people generally see them as stagnant akin to the stationary models of the solar system we’re taught with which implies all the bodies are lined up and moving together in the same direction, not taking into account that the whole system is an orbit too.

Capricorn constellation

Seriously who sees that shape without needing someone to draw/map it and point it out to them?

My ‘issue’ is that I’m interested in both the physical and the mystical/mythological side of things but I haven’t been able to explain my uncertainty about the symbolism of Saturn with the physical. Mum sees it more metaphysically – she’s better able to personify and empathise with the objects in space – whereas I look at the sky and don’t really feel anything, not even awe. I used to be able to really focus on the sun for example, to the point of it being ‘living’ in a sense with ‘beings’ and geometry inside. Nowadays when I try to concentrate on sol images of water pop into my mind and push me off that train of thought. So far I’ve been unable to verbalise to Mum why there may be more to the planets than just mythology and regular science/astronomy. However this video, an interview with Troy McLachlan on Red Ice Radio helps. I don’t agree with all of it but it got both of us thinking (and I’m glad he talks about the sky being different now to how it was which is a major factor I find it hard to explain to people into the mythological side, although it’s easier when talking about megaliths which he does too):

Sidenote – modern cultural examples of seemingly friendly iconic fusion of outer space ‘divine’ with Earth into ultra masculinity and the use of Mother Goddess terms is Superman or Kal-El with the use of Lalita’s Red (name means ‘Red’ and ‘joy’) with Earth Blue. Supergirl and Superwoman (and even Superdog) came later as a kind of afterthought or perhaps from a side of rib. A bit like She-Ra (Ra-ja Ra-jeshvari another name of Lalita, and means ‘king of kings’ feminine terms but nowadays thought of as masculine, also many of the male god names are taken/added from female names, She-Ra is the ‘princess of power’ whereas He-Man doesn’t have that equivalent title though both are called the strongest woman and man), He-Man’s supposed twin sister but she had far more powers, a god-name and in her non-super form wore Red whilst he wore Purple/Pink (the fusion of Red/Blue and the dilution of Red). The Dark Goddess in that cartoon could arguably be both sorceresses, one a birdwoman who lives in a skull, and one shadow who works for a Blue skinned techno-skeleton who lives in a bone castle and whose apprentice was another skeleton.

Reflected Glory – Illumination vs Enlightenment.

Whilst I don’t like the intro of the following video upto 3min47sec and I’m not keen on his interpretations of events for the people on Earth in his work generally (I’m not a love&light person and no that doesn’t mean I’m dark&evil 🙄 ) but for those who need scientists to tell them their reality this video is helpful. It gives a timeline of astronomers who have researched Planet X (remember X doesn’t just mean ‘mysterious’ it also means ‘ten’) and shows that its taken the better part of a century for most of these people (started before that) – and ironically NASA themselves the usual detractors – to learn about the effects that Micheal Brown, his assistant Konstantin Batygin and those who are supporting them ‘discovered’ in short order. It’s unlikely they were unaware of the easily found research available before coming up with the same findings. The video does not mention the many, many professional and amateur researchers constantly using every means they can from satellites to cross subject reference with culture/history and religion (though it does mention other subjects and prophets briefly) to the ‘contactees’. No it’s not funny; there are many intelligent, discerning as well as lettered (qualified) people who follow or at least pay attention to groups like the Zetas who have been talking about this and many other subjects for a long time but have their own agenda for humanity (no I don’t follow or endorse them).

It’s available in other versions on Youtube, shortened/added to/updated by other uploaders, and without the ‘ads’ but this is the original. It’s feels slow because he speaks slowly and the sleepy (but beautiful) background music but I prefer to show you the source and it was Mum who showed it to me (also thanks to her for just giving me a mug of hot [proper, healthy] chocolate.)

EDIT – 28JAN – the video that was showing was NOT the video I wanted. I posted the original hour long video by the man who made it, not that 1/2 hour edit with other footage. Re-posting the original. I DON’T like movie style documentaries or event dates/predictions. They’re put up every month, every national event, every alignment mostly by headline grabbers and shills. If the video ever changes or you’re unsure look for the title ‘Planet X 101: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How HD 1080p’ published on Oct 28, 2013 by user ‘Your Own World Books’ his website is yowusa.com

Whereas this video is the type of news you’ll get from parasites and ignorants.


————————————————

I read Sitchin’s first 6 books, ashamedly I haven’t read the 7th, when I was approx 16/17 so I don’t remember the books in complete detail but of course I’ve read about his work since. The first of the ‘Earth Chronicles’ was called ’12th planet’ (thanks for reminding me Mum, d’uh how did I forget the title even though I remember about the significance of the number 12; too much to know, too much to learn, too much to remember.) However thinking about Michael Brown (why, oh why) I’m reminded that when he was demoting Pluto (though its status was always controversial to the scientific community and whether they counted it as a planet at all) he was announcing another 9th dwarf planet (so actually a 10th planet, but 8 ‘normal’ and 2 dwarves) temporarily called Xena and it’s satellite Gabrielle, Xena was later renamed Eris (Eris being the Greek goddess of discord. That makes me think of – ‘dis-chord’ – remember the musical scale has been changed from the ‘divine’ scale of Asia which was based on 12 too and the Fibbonaci sequence and Lalita (way pre-dating Greek morphs) the Indian Mother Goddess and her Sri Chakra/Vidya – fibonacci being from the Matrika Devi from Lalita that deals with language and sound/frequency/vibration/music, the constellations so the zodiac). Latin Discord/ia’s opposite is Harmonia. At the time the public were told that it was not Planet X and that Planet X did not exist but now he’s admitting the effects of Planet X.

P.S – Xena being a ‘dark mother’ figure though not an original one, she’s also overtly fictional, but the later dark mother figures of world culture (fictional or not we’ll see) are generally portrayed as evil e.g ‘the wicked stepmother’, ‘the temptress’. Though look at the fate of desecrated&demoted Medusa, an African goddess incorporated into the conquering mythology/religion demonized for her natural Afro hair and made into a rape victim who is typically blamed instead of the rapist and vilified as a monster.

The usual number given for it’s time to go round our sun Sol is 3,600 years and that number was not only found by Zecharia Sitchin – it’s found in the Indian-subcontinental part of Asia too. That and other galactic times/patterns, the time it takes us to reach the galactic centre and back for example and the 15 Nityas of Eternity/the 21600 lunar/solar breaths i.e. the movement of planets in a Kali Yuga/432,000 years too. They were adept at mathematics. For the Eastern part (Western Asia being the focus of Sitchin) I read Madam Blavatsky’s amalgamation work ‘The Secret Doctrine’ when I was approx 20 and still find it the most ‘easily understandable’*, comprehensive/comparative work on that – yes you might have heard a lot of things about the Theosophical Society that was based on her work – but that doesn’t mean the work itself is not worth looking at. She used the terminology from numerous languages and explained it in English so it is jargon heavy but doesn’t go over the head and she (and whoever funded her/agreed to talk/got her into places to people most wouldn’t have a chance in a lifetime to get to or even know about) put together a lot of the work you’ll find separately elsewhere. That doesn’t mean I agree with it but it’s a worthwhile account and a large starting or early point since what she includes could easily be called a conclusion/the point where many searchers are at for ‘cosmic truth’ that relates to us. Sitchin’s work is more about what I call the ‘Cult of Celebrity’ but at the same time if true, even partially, is worth thinking about.

To all those that easily scoff at ‘dustbin/pseudo science’ i.e. what Planet X research has fallen into until now (well it wasn’t start with, but then was pushed there and is now being brought back), they usually fall into two major categories 1) those who actually know very little about science and scientific research and if they did follow journals and science media they’d be very shocked at all the projects going on and that have been going on, it’s not all ‘black ops’ ‘conspiracy theory’ – there’s plenty of crazy, useless, already known and mind blowing stuff going on that is published and updated all the time. It’s ironic the people who don’t look often talk about science like religion but get irate at that idea and look a bit too much at Californian film science without digging/looking for further explanation. 2) Those who know enough about those subjects to know it makes them uncomfortable, sometimes insecure and generally behave immaturely looking for every chance to jump on it. Funnily enough many of the people in those areas don’t behave the same and welcome/respect work done in areas that could be cross referenced with. Remember that geology was recently up until recently a soft-pseudo science and now has validity and psychology fought tooth and nail to be recognized as a social science (systematizing things being something they’re good at) and we also have ‘social sciences’ such as sociology who use empirical methods/statistics in research but aren’t scientific as a whole because things like social consciousness and behaviour don’t always follow strict guidelines. That said popularity I mean peer review doesn’t make things easy on anyone thinking differently but that’s going into a third group.

*It’s not easy, it’s not bestseller reading, you’ll need to use brain cells you forgot or didn’t realize you had but I don’t underestimate anyone – if you prefer not to look at just numbers and don’t mind what we think of as metaphors and interested in world/cosmic history/astronomy I don’t see why it should be mainly in the knowledge of elitist people even though it’s freely available online (just as a ton of researchers have made their work/updates available about Planet X but ridiculed/dismissed until now). Hitler and those (most likely the Thule Society) who twisted such learnings to place in a number of ways, the most obvious being the swastika also placed their ideal race up in the Scandinavian area and then claimed it spread to the Indus Valley and throughout Asia. However pre-Vedic old Hinduism (unfortunately it’s easier to call the different systems about Earth, life, health and well being ‘Hinduism’ in retrospect as it is the umbrella they were incorporated into) existed before modern/Vedic Hinduism when things got puritanical; class hierarchy, Sanskrit (younger than the Indus pictograms&symbols and Dravidian Indian languages*2) and the ‘lighter the better’ mentality for skin – that last of which was further entrenched with colonialism even though they broke up the country and they along with Islam decided which scriptures to transcribe and let the people believe as current Hinduism (it’s arguable that are are more non-translated Indian scripts than there are translated). I can see why they related the giants (both as a characteristic ‘they stand mentally/spiritually taller than us’ and as a 3D physical characteristic) of Europe with the idealized Aryan race of the Indus Valley but their reference point for that a place we don’t know existed and if it did, we don’t know where, at least Asia was there at the time. That said the insertion of ‘Blue bloods’ and ‘white skin, Blond but moreso Red hair and Blue eyes’ (and perhaps the RH-negative blood type according to some) is superior theme has had its effect, something many have noted and even complained about, in the casting for films for example (though Blonde became preferred and Red haired people stigmatized as seen with the Irish in particular in the UK and as immigrants to the US though quite frankly after Independence they were prejudiced against most new European arrivals) and ‘the perfect looking child’.

Where did the Aryan race come from? How did the Mesopotamian, Egyptians and Asians suddenly become more technological, extra ‘civilized’ master/slave style (whilst Mesopotamia and Egypt have shown to already have pronounced hierarchy, it seems the Indus-India side was slower to pick that up and it wasn’t until the Vedic that it took off) and their beliefs moved into the Vedic age making way for the Zoroastrian and later Abrahamic religions to spread throughout the world? Who knows; religion and many groups say aliens (albeit religion generically refers to space divinities, sky divinities but when you look at where/how they live on Earth they’re more mountain/our sky (rather than some unknown ‘heavens’/’up there’ above the planet place) and underwater beings and their workers e.g. jinn are fire beings and when you see characters like the greys (alien reference) they’re like watchers and then there are shadowy beings). Sitchin claimed they were the Hurrians (Horites to biblical folk). What about the supposed Annunaki supposedly from Planet X/its system? Hmm. Maybe that was just an excuse for a takeover bid or they were survivors from previous Nibiru flybys or ‘extinction level events’, underground societies (we’re building underground nowadays so the idea isn’t new though we consider ourselves better able to now), either way I don’t like ’em in general.

Ancient cultures (pre-Zoroaster/Abraham) agree that there have been five ages/stages, something we’ve only recently acknowledged/remembered with modern science.

*2 – I don’t often use the word ‘Proto’, too many people use that interchangeably or even replacing we estimate about written language by looking at it e.g. the later Indo-Aryan and Indo-European of which Sanskrit is a part of. ‘Proto’ is reconstructed – how we estimate language sounded, harder to do. I’ve seen the term Proto-Indo-European (PIE) used to, and probably unintentionally, agree with the Nazis and act like everything ‘superior’ started in Europe instead of the three ‘cradles of civilization’ as well as act like Iron Age*3 and younger European with particular focus on North Germanic/Nordic language to say they’re as old or older than the Indo-Aryan side i.e. to age them further and give validity. The oldest written languages we know of are from Africa and Asia before we get to Indo-European; verbal language pre-dating written would likely have been everywhere there were people who could make sounds and hand signs (though sign language is considered in a league of its own), we also have undeciphered languages and of course pre-historic painting. It’s not a competition people. What was before the ‘cradles of civilization’? It seems like just people getting on with life, revering the Earth as Mother, having the Cosmic Mother, a focus on androgyny and motherhood (those two are only conflicting in modern views; ‘androgyn’ and ‘hermaphrodite’ meanings have been changed over time, androgny was non-sexual or asexual/self-creative (if those chose and were worthy) and sometimes implies the meaning of the ‘original feminine’ rather than a person with no creative ability or to today’s standards no genitalia, and hermaphrodite is a later concept meaning having characteristics of two sexes but it can also refer to the division of the androgyn or creation of another sex) and weren’t ashamed of the Black and Red (Brown/rusty/reddish/bronze/copper) skin, the ‘dark’ mother and mother goddess are found internationally pre-historical record/pre-written language and incorporated into those later cultures but both demoted and demonized. Being the oldest historical civilization or one of them is as far as I’m concerned not something to be proud of, neither is much of human history in general that I’ve seen. You can keep your Aryans and superiority/inferiority complexes, talent does not compensate for lack of ethics and those ‘cradles of civilization’ and people since have displayed very little social development imo. We’ve taken mega-long and endless wars of so many kinds just so that some of us could realize the basics or treating other humans decently? Pfft forget that (no not literally, I’m not into amnesia). Tons of people can’t even accept that non-human animals have feelings, personalities or ‘souls’/consciousness and we come into contact with them everyday let alone the other potential sentient non-humans or super-humans. As long as you don’t act like some kind of vampire (blood, energy, anything that drains others) I don’t mind what species you are but I’ve seen little evidence of beings like that on this planet, and what I have seen like that or almost like that isn’t human.

Remember that the modern/Vedic Hindu pantheon top ‘gods’ claim they were given the vedas (all knowledge), they didn’t invent/write them or their contents, they may have even stolen them but the old knowledge of the world damned well got twisted for their convenience since!

*3 – This reference system of technological ages in archaeology and cross referenced in many subjects varies greatly from place to place, it is not the cosmic & yuga age system of ancient cultures.

Light and Dark

Today is the Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere, a day of light, a festival of fire… And yet, in the Southern hemisphere it’s the Winter Solstice, a night of dark, a festival of cold water.

I tend to feel strange on these days, perhaps it’s something to do with being a Solstice child myself. I feel forlorn, pulled, morose, sombre, reflective. Sad.
