Revelation (Part One B)


Published on

This second presentation, Part One B, takes us up to chapter 3:18. This completes the letters to the angels and sums up their content. After this, if you are still interested, you will need to look at Part Two. Part Two deals with the introduction of the New Kings which, according to this interpretation, began with the discovery of the planet Uranus in 1781.
And I am wrong about copper being an alloy of brass and zinc aren't I? What I mean is brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Silly me.

Revelation (Part One B)

  1. 1. REVELATION PART ONE B Part One A introduced the first three letters to the angels. Part One B offers an interpretation of the final four. These seven letters show us how we get things wrong but also how to put things right. I hope you will recognise that the wisdom they contain is worth taking to heart.
  2. 2. 4 Now we are looking at the fourth angel … the lovely Venus. I wonder what Venus gets wrong? Perhaps you can guess?
  3. 3. Is this a clue? WIKI. The noun form venus means "love" and "sexual desire" in Latin, and has connections to venerari (to honour, to try to please) and venia (grace, favour) through a possible common root in an Indo-European *wenes-, comparable to Sanskrit vanas- "lust, desire".23 Venus' name might embody the function of honours and gifts to the divine when seeking their favours: such acts can be interpreted as the enticement, seduction or charm of gods by mortals. The ambivalence of this function is suggested in the etymological relationship of the root *venes- with Latin venenum (poison, venom), in the sense of "a charm, magic philtre".
  4. 4. And if you are insecure about John calling stars ‘angels’ here is Babylonian Ishtar who the Sumerians called Innana and who we now know as Venus. She look just like an angel to me! Ishtar/Venus This is Enki – I am pointing him out to you merely because I like him.
  5. 5. And here she is in all her Bottichellian Beauty. She is All New in this picture as she has just been born. (It’s a shocking story - see next slide).
  6. 6. The myth relates that when Saturn cut off his dad, Uranus’s, genitals … oooouch … they fell into the sea and … aaahhhh … Venus was the result. I suppose, if we think of the sea as a great womb and Uranus as the amazing creative energy of the moment that allows things to happen (which it is), we shouldn’t be surprised. Uranus is Air and Venus is air, but Venus is Air with a touch of fire. What does air do to fire???? Think Bellows. Yep – it causes a conflagration …. Perhaps this is why she’s in for some flack from our friend Alpha and Omega.
  7. 7. VENUS ruler of Libra, complementary partner to the sensual sign Taurus. 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; .. d TAURUS - LIBRA + Venus’s metal is copper. Copper is an alloy of brass and zinc.
  8. 8. LIBRA Theoretical beauty Physical beauty TAURUS On the Anima Mundi you can see that Venus rules both Libra, AIR, beautiful ideals (intuitive-thinking), and Taurus, EARTH, beautiful physical bodies (sensual-feeling).
  9. 9. 2:19 I know thy works and love and faithfulness, .. 2:20 I have a few things against you because thou tolerate Jezebel, …. to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication … In the letter to the angel of the church in Thyatira, Venus is praised for her love and faithfulness, but told off for tolerating Jezebel, that well known teacher of he arts of seduction .. luring the son of Man's servants to sexual excess. This really does sound like erotic Libran Venus egged on by sensual Taurus Venus – Geoffrey Chaucer’s Wife of Bath: Born under Taurus and with Mars therein, Alas, alas, that ever love were sin.
  10. 10. … and to eat food sacrificed to idols ... The cult of romance teaches us that ordinary people are not enough, that we must seek a god or goddess, a Hollywood star, a dream-woman or dreamman, a beauty queen: .. Romantic love, true to its paradoxical nature, fools us: .. It is difficult to see the difference ..between relating to a human person and using that person as a vehicle for one's projections.’ Robert A. Johnson. The Psychology of Romantic Love. So, this is what idols are about.
  11. 11. The famous MIRROR of Venus Hitler had Libra rising so his ruling planet was Venus. Venus was squared Saturn in the tenth house on his birth chart (Saturn’s house ruled here by Leo). This gave him a need to see his Venusian projections crystallised in reality.
  12. 12. Chart: Solar Fire Deluxe
  13. 13. I felt sorry for Hitler. I wouldn’t like to be him. I was on a long train journey and needed something to do so I gave him a happier childhood but I couldn’t make him smile. Life can be mean.
  14. 14. So what does Revelation tell us next? That this behaviour will ... 2:22 ... plunge her lovers into terrible suffering, throw her on a bed of pain .... OH NO! I don’t like the sound of this.
  15. 15. ‘ We fall in love, we set up our ideal of perfection, and in time we are bitterly disappointed. … We follow our projections about, always searching for the one who will match the impossible ideal ... And when we don't find the divine world where we search - in a human being- we suffer; we fall into despair.’ Robert A. Johnson. The Psychology of Romantic Love Bachatan blogspot
  16. 16. The devastating tirade continues. Gregory Larson 2:23 And I will strike her children dead; Both promiscuity and projections lead to disaster; on the promiscuity side one cannot help but think of sexually transmitted diseases, venereal diseases (see .. Venus again). And projections can have equally tragic results both for the individual and the collective (as we saw with Hitler and his beautiful blond Arian race).
  17. 17. 2:26 And he that overcometh … to him I will give power over the nations: 2:27 ... And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; The goddess Athena, female representative of the Age of Aries and Libra, stands on top of the Old Bailey holding the Libran scales of Justice. Democracy was born in Athens. Perhaps it is democracy that will rule the world. Or maybe it’s just love?
  18. 18. So ... to Venus, if her love and faithfulness win through, is awarded the gift of … power over the nations: And he … (Venus rules Libra, cardinal Air, a positive and therefore male archetype) ... shall rule them with a rod of iron ... Anyone got ideas for the meaning of ‘rod of iron’? Iron is Mars, not Venus, but where would Venus be without her lover Mar’s .. um .. rod?? Venus represents the erotic attraction that calls out for pollination, and Mars, as you can see, is not only her lover in mythology but also her intimate neighbour on the Anima Mundi as they both share the position intuitive-thinking – Venus AIR and Mars FIRE.
  19. 19. Venus is beautiful. Beauty free of vanity, like genuine love, offers true joy, but taken to extremes this delicate gift is ruined. Debased it results in conceit and arrogance if you've got it, self-hate or jealousy if you haven't. This is the wickedness that the Queen in Snow White portrays so well Yes …. She thinks it’s Snow White’s heart!
  20. 20. I CHING: GRACE. Nine at the top means: Simple grace. No Blame. Here at the highest stage of development all ornament is discarded. Form no longer conceals content but brings out its value to the full. Perfect grace consists not in exterior ornamentation of the substance, but the simple fitness of its form. Simple grace blog Isn’t this lovely? So, what is this with FORM?
  21. 21. The Creative. 9 in the fourth place means: Wavering flight over the depths. Book III: The Commentaries. To waver means that one has freedom of choice. FORM SOMATOSENSORY CORTEX Here is a picture (on another of Liz’s Tarot cards) of young Paris choosing Venus as his favourite goddess, rather than Juno or Athena, and inadvertently staring the Trojan Wars. OOOOPs.
  22. 22. Somatosensory Homunculus – Hello Venus. The Somatosensory Homunculus sports big hands and luscious lips not quite as big as Mercury’s - but this little man also has genitals. Would you expect less from a model that symbolises the Venusian function in our brains.
  23. 23. 2:27 ... as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. Ah, love! could thou and I with fate conspire To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire, Could not we shatter it to bits - and then Re-mould it nearer to the Heart's Desire! Edward Fitzgerald. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. 1859 Glyniss Lessing Woof woof.
  24. 24. Clay, wet earth is an aspect of sensual/feeling Taurus. A vessel is made of formed clay - but why should it be broken into shivers? Perhaps this is explained by the famous Zen Buddhist story where the newly enlightened disciple answers the question of the master by breaking a pot. A central tenet of Buddhism is the HEART SUTRA: HEART SUTRA: ‘Form is emptiness and emptiness is form’.
  25. 25. 2:28 I will give to him the morning star .. Morning Star is the Greek name for the planet Venus. OK - that makes sense. The next letter is addressed to Mars.
  26. 26. Here he is. 5 1
  27. 27. MARS: ruler of the sign Aries, complementary ruler of the sign Scorpio. 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
  28. 28. ^ + Although Mar’s yin partner, Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, had not been discovered when John wrote Revelation, Pluto is implied. Pluto is ruler of the underworld. Mars is birth, spring, progress, he is also violence, aggression, passion, desire and war. Mars (birth) and Pluto (death) are as much one as the Sun and the Moon, they reflect the same energy in two different states, physical, Scorpio, and ideological, Aries. Here we are looking, not only Mars MOTIVATION, but also compulsive, physical, MOTIVE POWER, (Pluto). e _ Mars, ruler of Aries = Birth Pluto ruler of Scorpio = Death.
  29. 29. .. If you are not watchful, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not know what hour …. Wake up ... I have not found anything of yours completed; Here Mars is told that if he is not watchful the spirit will come upon him like a thief – Mars's angry outbursts can be lethal. Mars is also upbraided for unfinished work Wake up ... I have not found anything of yours completed. We know that Aries is notoriously impatient.
  30. 30. Why is Mars directed to wake up? Could this be alluding to desire, another facet of the Mars energy? Is it desire, that appears to have so much life, but is in actuality lifeless – dead. Desire is the stamp of the herd, the unconscious mass. Only the instant understanding of the false claim it is making on you .. can enable you to .. be free of it without frustration… The Mars element is pain and there is no mystery about pain, mental or physical: its purpose is to drive you towards awareness, to wake up. If you see this, pain has a purpose, otherwise you suffer for nothing. Barry Long. Knowing Yourself. 1983. (My underlining) The tragedy is that Tristan, in full possession of a life of relatedness, … refuses to enjoy it and appropriate it. Curiously, there is nothing he need do: He only needs to ... wake up to the riches that surround him, and live. Robert A Johnson. The Psychology of Romantic love. celefinwe
  31. 31. Here is another HEART SUTRA. Gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, Buddhi, sohar. It translates as: Gone, gone, gone beyond, completely exposed, AWAKE Sobeit. According to Chogyam Trungpa ‘Buddhi’ means AWAKE!
  32. 32. The gift for those few who survive the strength of Martian desires unsullied is the honour of being robed in white and acknowledged as ‘of the spirit’ in the presence of the Creator. 9 in the third place means: Creatively active all day long. He who is victorious shall thus be robed in white; his name I will never strike off the role of the living, for in the presence of my Father and his angels I will acknowledge him as mine. Remember, this is Alpha and Omega speaking!
  33. 33. TIME MINE! Alpha and Omega . And this Creative, Male, model stands for TIME! Personifications The Spirit The Father The Groom The Husband TIME The Spirit of the Son of Man The Mars/Pluto Comple-mentary Connection ALSO symbolises TIME! SNAP Mars represents the Creative force ‘active’ in the human brain. The Creative, according to the I CHING, defines ‘spirit’, as opposed to ‘body’ (which is symbolised by The Receptive). If this is the Spirit of the Son of Man talking, then ‘Creative’ Mars certainly belongs to HIM.
  34. 34. So now we get to the Great Jupiter. 6
  35. 35. Jupiter is king of the Gods on Mount Olympus. Here he riding out on his chariot – he likes to get about.
  36. 36. He is ruler of Sagittarius, complementary ruler of the sign Pisces. 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth and no man openeth; i _ f + Philhippos (shortened to Phillip) means lover of horses, Philosophy means lover of wisdom, Philadelphia – love of brotherhood. 3:8 Your strength I know is small … you have preserved your faith and not denied my name.
  37. 37. The ‘Great Benefic’ is applauded. Jupiter is ruler of the 9th house of religion, philosophy, knowledge and higher education. HOUSES on the Zodiac 9 8 12 7 1 Here is an image of Sagittarian friendliness, honesty and optimism, looking through the ‘open door’ of compassionate Piscean feeling. Jupiter is praised indeed. Belief in underlying meaning , it seems, is paramount to healthy human development. 6 2 5 3 4 Though his .. strength is small .. the 9th house is a cadent house which is traditionally considered weak - and so is Neptune’s 12th - he has .. preserved his faith .. and not .. disowned the name of the son of God. Image from goodenoughmother
  38. 38. 9 at the beginning means: Hidden dragon, Do not act. Quote: The Creative produces the invisible seeds of all development. At first these seeds are purely abstract. Therefore with respect to them there can be no acting or acting upon; here it is knowledge that acts creatively. On this Receptive model (physical), Jupiter stands in as the first line of hexagram The Creative, a line belonging to the intuitive SOURCE SOURCE. It is ‘receptive’ Neptune who supplies the wet environment in which Jupiter’s warmth can work its magic of expansion and create a new physical being. Vision is processed in the occipital lobes at Occipital lobes the back of the brain. Neptune is about film and photography - and Jupiter – pattern recognition.
  39. 39. These words are from Saturn, A New Look at an Old Devil, by Liz Greene. 1976. Jupiter's function in a psychological sense seems to be connected with the intuition and the faculty of creative imagination or visualisation. It is this intuitive faculty which responds to the meaning of a symbol and which makes us capable of apprehending the basic meaning or ‘soul’ of an experience or a person without prior analysis. The direct experience of the inner world of meaning establishes the quality which we term faith: .. The man who has genuine faith has it because he knows, in a non-rational way, that there is meaning and purpose to his experience and that it will unfold according to a pattern which contains intrinsic wisdom and purpose. (My Underlining)
  40. 40. On the Zodiac (The Creative male side of this complementary pair) where there is no need of a womb, SOURCE is connected with 9th house ‘religion’ which gave birth to universities, and also with 12th house charitable institutions (including hospitals). Personifications The Spirit The Father The Groom The Husband SOURCE Now you can see why the ninth house is the house of faith: it represents a link with the intuitive-feeling SOURCE. The only warning given to Jupiter, mythological King of the gods on Mount Olympus is, to ... … let no one rob him of his crown.
  41. 41. 3:12 … And he that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God. And I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the City of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and I will write upon him my new name. The Jupiter function supports the inner psychic structure of human faith as the pillar gives structure to the temple of God, and the ‘new name’ of God, and of the Spirit, the Son of Man, and of the City of God is to be written upon him. When I was born Jupiter was conjunct Mars in Gemini sextile Mercury conjunct Sun in Aries. As Mars rules Aries and Mercury rules Gemini with Jupiter tagging along they work together to make a great team: they generate really good pattern recognition skills. Perhaps the square to Jupiter’s partner Neptune helps too (though I don’t like it)?
  42. 42. THE NEW JERUSALEM, THE GOLDEN CITY, BRIDE of CHRIST. And here it is!!! The Anima Mundi, THE NEW JERUSALEM, symbolising our beautiful home planet. THE GOLDEN CITY or BRIDE of CHRIST. You will understand this better when she is properly introduced in presentation Three which interprets Revelations final two chapters. Christ is also called The Spirit of the Son of Man, or Alpha and Omega and we have already established this is represented by the ZODIAC, a foundation layout on which we map the movement of HEAVEN. The Bible (including Revelation) is the holy book of the Age of Pisces/Virgo.
  43. 43. So we get to the last of the old planetary rulers; Saturn. The seventh star. 7
  44. 44. Saturn is ruler of Capricorn, complementary ruler of Aquarius. g h
  45. 45. 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God. Saturn’s complementary partner (at this time yet to be discovered) is electric Uranus, the first god, the Creation god who mated with Gaea who then gave birth to LIFE. The Principal Gods Family Tree HERE THEY ARE (Heaven) Uranus = Gaea (Earth) Cronus = Rhea Coeus = Phoebe Oceanus = Tethys Leto = Zeus Iapetus | Hestia | Poseidon | Demeter=Zeus | Hades Zeus = Hera | Persephone | Prometheus | Athena | Atlas Epimetheus Apollo Artemis | Ares Hebe Hephaestus Zeus=Maia Zeus=Dione | Hermes Aphrodite From Edith Hamiltion's Mythology J.M.Hunt
  46. 46. Saturn stands at the top on both the Zodiac and Golden City models. For Ptolemy he was the farthest planet from Earth. He looked like a star but they could see that he moved very slowly across the starry background. The last planet: Amen. On the brain Saturn stands in for the Frontal Lobes – a witness that records our experiences, structures time, and creates a personal sense of identity. Personifications The Spirit The Father The Groom The Husband
  47. 47. 15. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. Saturn is accused of being neither cold nor hot. This is pertinent, for the original symbol for Capricorn was the Goatfish, a mythological beast representing neither a hot blooded goat nor a cold blooded fish. On the Anima Mundi Saturn is as far from hot fire and cooling water as you can get. He is all Earth and Air. Liz says this particular mix is expressed cognitively as empiric-thinking by which she means thinking with the Saturnian facts. Saturn is all about ‘reality’. If Jupiter thinks he can jump out the window and fly with the gods Saturn has the unpleasant job of dealing with the results.
  48. 48. Although he believes himself to be rich. How rich I am! and how well I have done! I have everything I want ... Saturn rules the City and the businessman, who control the power and authority created by wealth .. How rich I am! and how well I have done! I have everything I want ... Picture by mgkava He is, in actuality …. Picture by snapixel … a pitiful wretch, poor, blind, and naked.
  49. 49. Poor Saturn. Saturn is boundaries and walls – he is rigamortis - he is stone. When the metamorphosing energy of life attempts to fix its assets, cement its rules, fulfil its needs through what it owns, what it achieves in a physical sense, rather than through what it is, it loses its connection with the source. Here it stands for an artificial persona, a neat, tidy, grown up, civilised self-designed mask behind which the living, creative self, is imprisoned, contained and controlled. Picture by clipartoday
  50. 50. The Saturn/Uranus complementary connection represents Wealth. It is the culminating complementary connection on both the Cosmic Zodiac and the Pattern of the Elements. Personifications WEALTH The Spirit The Father The Groom The Husband WEALTH
  51. 51. But Uranus means revolution! Saturn and Uranus are forever at war. Old working structures quake at the idea of new ideas - however inspirational. SIX AT THE TOP: Dragons fighting in the meadow. Their blood is black and yellow. The Saturn/Uranus connection on the pattern of the human brain carries the qualities of MIND. MIND Uranus is a positive planet (therefore yang), of a positive element Air (also yang), carrying a positive energy, the energy of inspiration, breathing in, (yang) - it was discovered around the same time as oxygen. It is represented in the I CHING by three yang lines which make up the trigram the Creative.
  52. 52. Here I stand, .. knocking at the door: Liz Greene calls Saturn ‘the door keeper’ because he stands between the personal and collective planets. He also stands at the door of Death.
  53. 53. And here is Saturn at the highest position on the Ptolemaic Order sitting on his throne of authority. … if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and sit down to supper with him and he with me. If Saturn hears his voice, and if he opens the door, a difficult task for rigid and defensive Saturn, he will sup with the Spirit of the Son of Man . And … so says the voice .. .. I will grant a place on my throne, as I myself was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. Up from earth's centre through the seventh gate I rose, and on the throne of Saturn sate, And many knots untangled by the road But not the knot of human death and fate. Edward Fitzgerald. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
  54. 54. On the brain we are looking at the Frontal Lobes – a witness that records our experiences, creates a personal sense of identity and has the power to discipline the rest of the brain. Through the evolutionary capacity of its complementary partner Uranus – genius and inspiration - Saturn is promised the reward of ruling in harmony with the Spirit of Man and God. Personifications Saturn, seventh angel, sits in the position on the Evolving Brain of the Frontal Lobes conditioned memory. The Spirit The Father The Groom The Husband
  55. 55. Then there is mention of reproof and discipline, two practices dear to Saturn's authoritative heart. This is Dante’s Seventh sphere … the sphere of temperance. All whom I love I reprove and discipline,
  56. 56. Saturn's metal is lead. Alchemists believed that you could turn lead into gold through a process of calcinatio, a term which means passing through fire. Revelation continues: 3:18 Purchase gold refined in the fire then, thou mayest be truly rich. ‘There is no fast and easy method of making a friend of Saturn. In many ways the ancient art of alchemy was dedicated to this end; for the base material of alchemy, in which lay the possibility of gold, was called Saturn, and this base material, as well as having a concrete existence was also considered to be the alchemist himself.’ Liz Greene. Saturn, A New Look at an Old Devil
  57. 57. I drew this picture in my diary. I didn’t recognise him until after I had drawn him. After I recognised him I gave him the broach. Because I drew him in my diary I have a date.
  58. 58. Here he is at 25 degrees Aries conjunct my 25 Aries Sun.
  59. 59. And here he is in reality – with the sun shining through his rings. He looks like a DVD .. doesn’t he? ... And Saturn rules that part of the brain where we put down conditioned memories . One more point - Capricorn is a negative ‘receptive’ female sign not male at all … memories always have to be imprinted on some THING. So what’s up here? Hmmmmm?
  60. 60. WHAT ARE THESE SEVEN LETTERS TELLING US? 1. The Sun. WARNING: Don’t forget to love one-self. GIFT. To eat of the Tree of Life: Alpha and Omega clearly believe/s that life is a great opportunity. 2.The Moon. WARNING: Sustaining physical incarnation is hard work and can be painful. 3. GIFT. The crown of Life. 3. Mercury. WARNING: The temptation to mind-chatter irresponsibly. GIFT. Self-awareness and the naming of our conscious self. 4. Venus. WARNING: The danger of promiscuity and projection. GIFT. Power over Nations. 5. Mars. WARNING: The spirit-deadening quality of compulsive, obsessive desire. GIFT. Creativity. 6. Jupiter. WARNING: The importance of retaining a positive attitude in the face of negative influences. GIFT. The philosophical structure of the New Jerusalem (The Anima Mundi). 7. Saturn. WARNING; The poverty of a self-important identity structure based on material wealth. GIFT. The divine authority in the recognition of our individual roles as both hosts and guests of an evolving living system.
