The birth and pastimes of Jesus

christmasDearly beloved, on this day the season of the birth of our good lord, let us remember that which was dismembered. Let us reunite the severed portions of our lord Osiris like ISIS did when she discovered them cleft into twelve or thirteen by the evil brother Seth. And let us remember our Lord God the Son of God, son of the Mother of God, who is both God and child of God, man and God; who originated from the Great Hebrew Tetragrammaton YHVH Yod He Vau He, the unspeakable name of Jehovah, and how he is the Yod He Shin Vau He, the mighty Jeheshuah, the only son Jesus, anointed one as the Christ; may his name be praised.

And may his works be praised. Let us remember and meditate on the great pastimes of our good lord, as we read in the good book, the gospel according to King James, who in his majesty felt it just to translate, edit and abridge according to his majestic whim, the gospel of our lord the saviour, following in the footsteps of our glorious pontiffs of old, the Great Emperor Constantine, who in his majesty sought to whimsically also edit and abridge the gospel at the Council of Nicea in the fourth century in the year of our lord. That gloriously good book, now completely edited of any reference to the teachings of our lord on metempsychosis, or transmigration of the soul (reincarnation), even when our lord himself mentions the reincarnation of the soul when asking the question “who do they say I am?” and getting the answer from his beloved disciples, “some say you are Isaiah come back from the dead.” Glory be to Constantine who out of political expediency and totalitarian tactfulness sought to adopt the faith and religion of our lord and make it the state religion, and glory too to the holy church who although expunging any reference to Mother Mary as a deity, still allow her to be idolised and adored and worshipped as was the goddess worship in days of old, just like the goddess Radharani who is worshipped without any reference whatsoever to her divinity in the sacred texts. Mary of the immaculate conception, echoing the pastime of Mother Devaki in Krishna’s pastimes, in which Krishna himself was conceived as the divine child, first in the mind and then being transferred to the womb of his mother.

Glory be to that one same original immaculately conceived God as he is seen in numerous religions over the ages, many guises of the one same worshipable avatar for over 5000 years. And let us remember his pastime of entering the temple and of seeing there the Jewish money lenders as they charged interest on their loans in usury, a sin by any other name. And let us remember his wrath as he chased the money lenders out of the temple and manifested his wrathful pastime, overturning their benches and tables, their “bankies” from where the term “bank” today originates. For verily the lord is more than displeased with the Jewish money lenders, the same criminals we see today brothers and sisters, the same corrupt, greedy, sociopathic, unscrupulous pawns of evil who run the world banks and crush the least fortunate of us under their criminal and sinful tactics of compound interest. May the lord smite them in the bottom line, as he did in his pastimes on earth 2000 years ago. For such sinners in the guise of bankers will corrupt the very temple, the house of worship and turn it into a house of money grabbing, of golden idol worship. And verily, whenever there is a decline in religious principles and a rise in irreligion, the lord shall again appear to annihilate those miscreants and protect the beliebers, while re-establishing the principles of religion. So behold the time is nigh for the return of the lord in all his smite, where with a smiteful glance the bankers of today shall once more be smitten, heed my writing on your wall oh beloveds. For even from the caste of labourers, carpenters and cow herders he shall appear, the avatar of the lord.

And woe unto those same bankers who have made this day of his birth into a capitalist consumer spending spree in order to enrich themselves by trapping the lesser of us in debt, to get rich on that which belongs to Caesar on this which should be a holy day of fasting and remembrance. Surely this is religion for profit. Oh we, like sheep do continue to be led and so be it due to our folly and refusal to heed the deed of the lord in his pastimes. Therefore let us meditate on the pastimes of the lord and be awakened to the error of our ways and forever more be uplifted into his shelter, Amen.

Christmas full moon

Christmas astrologyThe rare Christmas full moon may well have many of us returning to the home and hearth of our traditional families where possible. The emotional ties to loved ones will be more deeply felt, and emotional reminiscences may bring tears to the eyes of some. The nostalgic feeling of being back home in the safety of something reliable from the past or youth is particularly stabilizing and may benefit us now during this time. And there is sure to be an avid supply of culinary delights to be shared over this festive full moon too. The actual full moon moment peaks around lunch time in Africa and Europe, so gather around the plates and cups to share the home baked treats where you can, while taking plenty of snaps and selfies to capture the moment for posterity.

Those of non-Christian persuasion will probably also be with family anyway, sharing the moment. Some may find the family obligations a bit of a burden, or may find the family trying to dominate them in some way. Somehow the overly protective maternal instinct may want to nurture the brood to such a degree that some find it smothering. That’s quite understandable in this day and age. The family unit has fragmented somewhat over the generations, and the extended family is not what it once was either. Even having an uncle or aunt you see regularly is quite a luxury. In the west the family just does not count for what it once did. The demands of a career call the members of most modern families far and wide, and if you can get back together for the holiday time now, you are very lucky. Some substitute blood relatives with a like minded community or spiritual family, which is equally valuable nowadays, when cultures shift so rapidly. We are blessed in the west to have a system that facilitates annual family reunions. Many are struggling around the world now with trying circumstances that have thrown families into disarray, scattered them apart due to conflict and unrest. Whether in Europe, Africa, or Asia, we should appreciate the facility to continue our traditions in peace and goodwill. This past year has seen records broken for refugee numbers in countries and continents where parents and children are uncertain of their fate, their future, and in some cases if they will even be reunited at all. So we are the lucky ones. A prayer for mercy to flow in the direction of the displaced refugee masses would be of great help to them, even etherically, during our day of religious or communal reflection as a global family on the planet now.

Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all well aligned with each other for Christmas day too. This definitely favours speakers, academics, book sellers, writers and publishers. Particularly topics of philosophy and religion should be up for discussion over this religious holy day. Ease and confidence should be available to those required to give public speeches, and to any who plan to have a social time. Good moral and ethical decisions can be made now, as well as beneficial foreign policy decisions or relations with foreigners in general. Let’s hope this can facilitate the needs of the foreign refugees looking for shelter in the hearts, minds and homes of a strange land. You can tell a nation by how it treats its elderly, most vulnerable and its neighbours. Let’s hope we rise to the occasion.

All round the indicators are there for a happy social occasion filled with song and dance this Christmas, with good cheer, good taste and social grace to make any social event a success. The one concern of course may be the challenging square aspect from Mars to Mercury that could add an active mind frame that may incline some to become slightly heated in their speech and expression, so if yours is a family that can sometimes split into bipartisan sides over a topic, or if you have one odd uncle who always puts his foot in it, then just be forewarned and have a gag and a rope ready. We can’t afford anyone having a nervous breakdown now. Rather just remember to cultivate patience and tact, along with the ability to listen to the family tales as if for the first time. Christmas comes but once a year, and sometimes it’s the only time we get to see the extended family, so be sure to make the most of it and leave a good impression as it may be with you for life. Besides that, Jupiter’s conjunction with the North Node/Rahu should help us fit in with the mood of the day, and appreciate the time honoured traditions that occur now. Just remember today that there is concern in growing or expanding too fast. Don’t take too much for granted. And finally, remember when you give out gifts that those things which are attained too easily may not always be properly appreciated by the receiver.

Mercury conjunct Pluto as secrets are revealed

Mercury conjunct PlutoMercury, the closest planet to the Sun will be exactly conjunct or aligned with Pluto, the furthest planet from the Sun this weekend, visible as the evening star following the Sun on the western horizon just after sunset. In astrological symbolism this is a powerful time, where Mercury – the winged messenger and archetype of communication and clear thinking, aligns with Pluto – lord of the underworld and all that is hidden, secret or taboo. In other words this is the time for in depth research, and more particularly for the investigative mind to discover hidden secrets or to get to the bottom of the issue. The resourceful mind, combined with intensified willpower, should enable any detective or truth seeker to penetrate the mysteries and discover what is really going on around here. For truth is more important than comfort at this time, and so illusions can be dispelled for a change this weekend. Great for those who want to understand reality as it is, perhaps disconcerting for those who are trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the masses for their own selfish interests, or those who derive power over others by keeping them in ignorance and illusion. This is the aspect of the master of the occult (meaning “hidden”) – the sage who knows the underlying shakti that powers the universe and how to harness it, particularly via words and mantras.

For example one secret that needs to be revealed now, since it is the season of Christmas, is the fact that many of the religious myths and legends that make up the stories and pastimes of our various cultures are actually hidden astronomical references hiding in plain sight so as to be communicable through countless millennia to those with eyes to see, while at the same time not being lost during times of less consciousness or understanding. The pastime of Jesus, the Son of God, being born on December 25th alludes to the actual Sun and reveals that fact that Christianity is nothing more than a modernised covered version of the ancient “pagan” Sun worship. In the northern hemisphere the winter solstice of December 21st marks the day when the Sun is at its most extreme position in the sky due to the tilt of the planet, to bring about the shortest day, the longest night, and consequently the coldest, darkest time of mid-winter. From the 21st to the 24th, for three days, the Sun remains in that position in the sky, providing the least amount of sunlight to the north. Then on the 25th it slowly begins its ascent towards longer daylight, by a few minutes each day. Thus the day actually marks in astronomical terms the turning point where the Sun begins to increase again, a point designated by priests via religious allegory as the “Birth of the Son”. It’s as simple as that. And in a snow swept northern winter climate, the return of the Sun is a lifesaver and a Godsend, and the date is most significant. In this way, by investigative research we discover the secret truth that we are all – and have always been – Sun worshippers. Such revelations may bewilder some, may shake their faith, test the foundations of their myth – the illusion they call their reality, but there it is. Even in the Vedic culture we worship the Sun. Part of the secret mantras given to the newly initiated brahmana by the guru include those worshipping Surya, the Sun, although that is a secret mantra so don’t tell anyone. And it is recited three times a day, at sunrise, noon and sunset. Catholic Priests of old in the Middle Ages were the only ones allowed to study Latin, the hidden language, and thus the rest of the plebs were kept in the dark about the actual words of their own sacred texts. Similarly in ancient Vedic culture, there were times when the brahmanas would be the only ones able to access the Sanskrit texts, and they too abused their position of power over the other castes, a legacy that lingers to this day, where brahmanas in certain parts of India openly practice racism against their own people in the form of caste segregation and abuse, a symptom of the severely ignorant mindset of one who has not comprehended the actual purport of their own scripture, Bhagavad Gita, which says that it is by “guna” and “karma” – qualities and actions – not by birth, that one recognises a true brahmana.

So the truth is not always as it initially seems, and when the window of opportunity arises this weekend we should use it to enlighten ourselves to the underlying message behind the myth. Another astronomical reference hiding in allegory is that of the Vedic astrologer’s reference to two planets called Rahu and Ketu. Even in the Bhagavat Purana the pastime of the demon Rahu and Ketu appears, where he sneaks in amongst the demigods to also get a sip of the nectar of immortality, but as he takes a sip, he is recognised and immediately his head is decapitated. However because he had already sipped the nectar of immortality, his head remained alive, although the body perished. So in Jyotish or Vedic astrology Rahu and Ketu are described to be either planets, or even the head of the demon that still swallows the Sun or Moon during the regular eclipses we experience annually. Now the truth is that there is no head in the sky eating the Sun only to have it reappear out of his severed neck. Nor is there actually a planet in the sky called Rahu or Ketu, for in fact those two positions, called the north and south nodes, are the exact measurable points on the plane of the ecliptic, or planetary rotational path, where the shadows of the Sun, Moon and earth intersect to cause what we know as an eclipse. In other words, even Bhagavat Purana is using allegory and myth to present astronomical truths so that they can be preserved in the mind of the less educated over thousands of years without being lost to the actual discerning reader. These are the types of secrets that can be discovered now to any who wishes to know what is really going on. Some need to take their parables literally, and so be it. Call me a blasphemer if you like, but show me where my evidence is wrong and I will be open to correction. And be ready for further bombshells to rock your world this weekend.
