  3. 3. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Hugh Colmer, artist and philosopher, believes the Tarot belongs to the same iconographic tradition as Egyptian hieroglyphics and is a Perfect Language of Images. Punctuated with 78 stunning images replete with ancient symbolism “The Ultimate Multiverse Tarot” delves into the mystery of a greater unseen “Power,”thatnotonlyexists,butcontrolstheeverythingofwhoandwhatweare. Hugh possesses an array of talents that have led him from agent/producer of art and photography to the investigation of comparative myth and religion. Inspired by his initial searches, he co-wrote a novel with Anthony Masters in 1995 called “Hidden Gods: The Doorway,” wherein a news photographer is on an urgent quest to find the secrets of Atlantis encoded into the Great Pyramid. During Hugh’s examination of myth and religion, he realized that the Cross and the Circle were the most profound symbols of all time and so inspired him to register The Crosscircle Group to publish books and writings on spiritual ‘Truth.’ His core inspiration and commitment is to share the wisdom of the ancients, like that found in the ‘Book of Thoth’ and its subsequent incarnations as the Tarot. Like those who were part of the Knights Templar, he is dedicated to uncovering and sharing the Truth of the Ages, which is the raison d’etre for the art and text he created for “The Ultimate Multiverse Tarot.” Hugh and his wife Carol run a spiritual retreat center in Windham, NY.
  4. 4. First and foremost, I would like to thank my wife, Carol, who has always found the right research at the right time. I am deeply grateful for her assistance. In addition, I have to acknowledge the other authors who have beaten this same track before me who have both inspired and lessened my task. I cannot thank Tracey R. Twyman and Nicholas De Vere enough for pointing out that the Dragon Legacy is at the root of the Tarot. Sir Laurance Gardner and Nicholas De Vere pointed me in the direction of Starfire and as I decoded the zodiac and the tarot I concluded they are replete with Starfire symbolism. In fact alchemy and the Tree of Life are intertwined according to the Halexandra and Bibliotecapleyades websites. Zecharia Sitchin argues in The Cosmic Code that the Anunnaki used their detailed sky charts to group the stars into constellations, and then honored their leaders by naming the constellations after them. Thus, the Sumerian god EA, (“Whose Home is Water”) was honoured by the zodiacal signs of Aquarius and Pisces, and the “priests who oversaw his worship” were dressed as Fishmen. Enlil, the strong-headed one, was honoured by the sign of Taurus. Ninmah was Virgo. The warrior Ninurta was Sagittarius. Over time, Sitchin explains, as second and third generation Anunnaki ’gods’ joined the scene on Earth, “all the twelve zodiacal constellations were assigned to Anunnaki counterparts.” He argues, “not men, but the gods, devised the zodiac.” Bel/Marduk is attributed with extracting the Zodiac out of the marine dragon Tiamat’s body. The Heavenly Stars of the Zodiac circle us each year, like the Ouroboros serpent swallow- ing its own tail. Tiamat gave birth to gods and goddesses; she is Lady of the Great Deep, Keeper of the MEs (Tablets of Destiny or the Ten Commandments. The eleven supernatu- ral Monsters who guard the Gate of the Abyss are Tiamat’s offspring, as are the creatures of the Zodiac. The centaurs and unicorns are Tiamat’s Zoomorphic offspring, as are serpents that have her wisdom. For the ancient Babylonians, the constellation of Alpha Draconis represented Tiamat, whose body was split by Marduk to create the heavens and Earth. In ancient Egypt, the constellation was known as Taweret, the Egyptian goddess of child- birth, fertility, and of the northern skies. During this time, the star Thuban was the pole star, giving the appearance that the night sky revolved around the constellation. As such, one of the shafts from the Queen’s Chamber is directed towards Draco. I was going to call my latest book the Dragon Tarot but realized it could also be called the Starfire Tarot. Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas also had a profound influence on this work as they saw the importance of the Tarot during their research. Michael Tsarion pointed out that the Egyptian goddess Taweret was the originator of the tarot and that Thoth et al gained their wisdom from her. I listened to the first three episodes of his Path of the Fool series which I thought were an amazing exposition of the symbolism of these archetypes. I was fascinated by his deciphering of the symbolism of the Fool in the Waite deck. The conclusion that the dog biting his heels was Anubis correlates with Apollo also being a wolf god as he’s the son of Letona the Hyperborean wolf goddess in the Capitoline. I never realized that the Waite Fool was standing on a pyramid or that the ‘F’ was actually an ‘S’ for Sol the Sun and Sol symbolizes the Dragon as all temples of the Sun were temples of the Dragon. Crowley has the Baphomet as the Fool with the crocodile Sobeck almost invisible there. Who, apart from researchers like Micheal Tsarsion are ever going to un- Acknowledgments
  5. 5. derstand the obtuse symbolism in the Waite Ryder and Aleister Crowley decks? Eliphas Levi and Manley Hall equated the Cabalistic Ain Soph, the Ain represents the God, the Creator of all, the Transcendent One.as the Fool. Ain Soph is the Hindu Parabraman, the Supreme Cosmic Spirit, symbolized by Kalahansa the Swan in space and time. If I were to follow Crow- ley’s symbolism I would have Taurt or Tiamat as the Fool as they were the original goddesses of the Golden age which would have been in the Age of Dinosaurs if we look closely at Bel Marduk the Sirush Dragon on the Ishtar gate in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. David Wilcock makes the case that we cannot evolve until we’ve integrated the 22 archetypes of the Tarot. But are there 22? Taweret or Tarut is an earlier form of later goddesses such as Apt, Wedjat, Nekhbet, Isis, Hathor, Ashteroth and Nuith. She is the original Virgin Mary. Gods such as Atum, Amen, Ptah, Osiris, Anubis and Thoth-Hermes were her children. Five of the Major Arcana: The High Priestess, Empress, Justice, Star and the Universe are arche- types of Tarut. If this is true then this eliminates four archetypes. William Henry, asks: Why are the bearded savior gods of every world religion portrayed as serpents or are they wormholes themselves? He presents evidence of star gates and worm- holes encoded in art and texts of ancient Sumeria and Egypt that is reflected in the Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Islamic and other faiths. Go to http://williamhenry.net/SGbearded- Gods.htm to see artwork displaying a remarkably consistent concept. In Secrets of the Earth - Questions and Answers on the Line of Ten Avatars of Vedic Tradition Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea) reveals the system the ancients used to identify the Avatar, he who comes ‘from age to age’ at a precise time and with a specific task to fulfill for the Earth’s evolution. Focusing on the three strides of Vishnu, she gives us the key to understand the cosmic truths which underlie this famous legend. Manley P. Hall tells us nine stages of the human embryo are the same as the ten avatars of Vishnu. I have created the art for the original signs of the zodiac and in that process I found that Aquarius has nothing to do with Ganymede it’s actually the pot or cauldron holding the ser- pent energy, soma, or ambrosia from the Milky Way or the goddess. Pisces originated with prehistoric Tiktaalik. Cancer was originally symbolized by a turtle Aditi the wife of Kashyapa the turtle god spawned the Nagas and the Garudas if we are to believe Hindu mythology. Aries and the Golden Fleece is veiled symbolism for the hanging goddess and starfire, the sacred blood of the goddess. Gemini is not about the twins but the Heiros Gamos. Virgo and Scorpio were one according to Blavatsky and there wasn’t a Libra. Scorpio is symbolized by the Garuda the Eastern Phoenix. And the three strides of Vishnu are between the Fixed signs incorporated in the Sphinx. The Garuda is the vahana of Vishnu and has the wing span of a pterodactyl so what is a god doing flying a dinosaur? Vishnu and Shiva have serpent symbolism and were probably ser- pent gods themselves. Again the goddess has been put in second place…the Brahmins cre- ated three male gods to equal Kali Ma. As I created the images for the zodiac and the tarot I was reminded of Krishnamurti’s advice. Accept things as they are without judgment.
  6. 6. In the most extreme version of looking at parallel universes, every single theory which could possibly exist would have to exist in some form somewhere. This therefore suggests the Ul- timate Multiverse remembers and records everything as it is. This is based on the holographic principle. The Multiverse tells the story of itself, of Earth, and yourself. It means that these stories are repeated on a cyclic basis as the Universe moves in cycles, of which the Zodiac is integral. Consider this: Earth is a planet, too. So Earth has her stories and her archetypes. Physicists explain that particles can spark into existence in an infinite number of parallel uni- verses as well. Understanding that we exist in multiple parallel universe is really important. Why? Because we emit thought forms that affect the Earth’s vibration. Earth relays these vibrations to the sun; the sun relays it to Galactic Centre, where it goes out to celestial bodies and back to earth via the same route. So, everything in the cosmos is connected. We cross these different universes as stages on the royal path in search of the self. The Tarot is a portal to a saner universe away from the collective madness on this planet. So why do we need to know this? George Gurdjieff answers. ”Because what we don’t know can hurt us.” Parallel Universes While the idea of a parallel universe may sounds surreal, a recent book from an Oxford physi- cist named David Deutsch entitled, “The Fabric of Reality: The Science of Parallel Universes - And Its Implications” describes the possibilities of tapping in on parallel universes. He proposes that through a parallel universe one computer would be able to find an identical counterpart computer from the other universe, and collaborate with it to increase knowledge of the other universe. If this is feasible for computers why not humans? Leading quantum scientists like Max Plank, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku and Neil Turok have all suggested the existence of multiple universes. This extraordinary discovery was first made when, trying to detect the exact location of an atomic particle, physicists found atom- ic particles have the ability to simultaneously exist in more than one place at a time. Brian Greene’s book, The Hidden Reality, is an amazing voyage through a vast unimaginable ‘Drag- on’. The Ultimate Multiverse Tarot
  7. 7. Stargate Metaphysics and Black-Hole cosmology. A black-hole cosmology is a cosmological model in which the observable universe is the interior of a black hole existing as one of possibly many inside a larger universe. Investigative mythologer, William Henry has decoded mythological ‘star gate or black hole art’. He believes that the so-called gods had advanced Star gate Metaphysics. The goal of this metaphysics is teach us we too can quantum jump through the star gates of the gods. Henry believes this is the original Secret we are meant to discover. The Mayans tell us that in 2012 a ‘serpent rope’ is going to emerge from the center of our Milky Way galaxy out of which will step Quetzalcoatl, the bearded god of enlight- enment. This serpent rope is symbolized by an eight--rayed cosmic wheel. Cosmic sub atomic (God) particles ooze from this world tree or cosmic cross. Mayan scholar John Major Jenkins has proposed that the archaic term ‘serpent rope’ is interchange- able with the modern scientific term ‘wormhole’ or ‘star gate’, i.e. a tunnel that links two regions of space.” A worm hole is going to open at the centre of the galaxy, and out of this, an enlightened being or new consciousness will emerge. Amon Ra’s barque of a million years depicted with a crown of rams horns encircled by the sun disk against the Serpent Apep
  8. 8. Quantum Jumping to Multiple Universes Now imagine the wisdom we have when we access these alternate versions of our self in these multiple universes. Constant dialogue with these alternate selves will essentially be tapping into a universal ocean of knowledge and experi- ence that we already have. But how, does one access these alternate realities? The answer is that all physical matter is the result of particles vibrating at a certain frequency. A frequency can be altered or amplified to change our current physical reality. This happens through “thought transference.” Although our world seems solid, Quantum Physics has proven that our physical reality is nothing but an intri- cate matrix of information and energy. That’s when the Multiverse Tarot becomes essential as a tool for “thought transference.” If this hypothesis is true, there is a universe where we are an emperor and another one where we are the high priestess or any other of our archetypes. The imagery in the Thoth and Waite Rider Tarot decks need a skilled mythologer like Michael Tsarsion to explain the meaning. This tarot is asking us to see things as they are. Access the Soul through Tarot. In the Ra material, the Tarot is analysed in terms of archetypes. When we contemplate an image of the Major Arcana we have en- coded that key with a valuable message that we need to hear now. Close your eyes and tune into that message as the subconscious mind is guided by the higher Self which will guide you to find the right image at the right time. There already is a part of us that exists now, millions of years in the past and future as we would think of it, (in 6D), that has full time-travel capability. It can go to any point of our entire evolution, study it in minute detail, and affect the outcome. It knows what lessons we need to learn to get from here to there — and its primary goal is to increase the speed with which we make that journey”. David Wilcock Images are the preferred language of the mind to activate the latent strands of DNA. Constant reference to the imagery of major arcana can restore higher levels of consciousness of our original blue print from the Universal Mind. David Wil- cock believes that our minds maybe hard wired to experience specific archetypes in various lifetimes and until all 22 archetypes are experienced it is not possible to shift into the fourth dimension. Immersing oneself in the imagery of these ar- chetypes will keep the ego from wasting its energy in resisting what the Universal Mind has encoded in our personal bio-computer matrix
  9. 9. Tarot imagery changes the consciousness of the cells in the human body which contain clues to our personalities, tastes, and history, independently of genetic codes or brain cells. That is, everything that has ever happened to us is recorded in the cells of our body, and remembered – like files in a computer. Imagine how wonderful it is to share these higher principles of transformation so we might commence our journey through the 22 steps of the pure knowledge in the Tarot in our own physical body. The Tarot urges the seeker to find the truth within oneself, not outside. Hence exter- nal phenomena such as miracles and personal Gods do not help the seeker to experi- ence the ultimate truth. External entities can be useful indirectly but focusing too much on them only delays the realization of ultimate truth. The real journey to the realization of the ultimate truth is an introspective journey within one’s own self. Self-awareness and Self enquiry are the only basics for this journey.
  10. 10. The Sphinx of Giza, says Neo Platonist philosopher Iamblicus, served as an entrance to the sacred vaults where the Magi held their initiation tests. Under the body of the Sphinx were corridors that connected with subterranean galleries of the Great Pyramid; these labyrinthine passageways were so skilfully arranged that anyone who undertook the jour- ney from the Sphinx to the Great Pyramid without a guide was inevitably brought back to his starting point. Iamblichus reports that a novice priest who wished to be indoctrinated into the mysteries of Osiris was blindfolded by the two Magi priests between the paws of the Sphinx. The novice was then led through a secret door into a subterranean labyrinth which led to the underground Temple of Osiris. In these underground passages, the novice had to endure a series of gruelling trials designed to test his intuition, intelligence, and moral strength. They climb a spiral staircase and at the twenty-second step the seeker could see 24 sphinxes in a long gallery through a bronze grating. Between each sphinx there is a frescoe with mysterious figures and symbols. These twenty-two frescoes are lit by eleven bronze tripods arranged in a line running down the middle of the gallery. The 22 sym- bolic frescoes are strikingly similar to those found in the Tarot. There, the Magus would greet the novice and instruct him as to the ir significance. As he passes in front of each of the twenty-two paintings in the gallery, the postulant learnt the mysteries of the universe and himself. The 22 Major Arcana in the Temple of Osiris
  11. 11. Like the novice priest, you will find that the Tarot gives you an important clue to deci- phering the zodiac cryptogram. In time capsule messages the key is overtly supplied along with the cipher. The major arcana are the key to unlock the zodiac message. The other is the astrological sphinx, whose body parts are composed from four fixed signs of the zodiac. When properly understood, Paul Violette tells us the “Riddle of the Sphinx” is actually the challenge to decode the zodiac cipher. The sphinx merely tempts seekers of the truth to solve this astronomical riddle which has been waiting for over twelve thousand years to be deciphered. The Tarot’s seventy-eight enigmatic pages of images, together with their geometrical, numerological and Astro-Theological motifs assist the adept to open the doors to his inner Wisdom Body or “Living Oracle.”The means of entering into dialogue with the Living Oracle involves the correct usage of, and meditation upon, iconic images such as those in the Major Arcana. The images are figurative representations of our archetypal intelligence not normally accessible to the ego. This intelligence emanates from deeper hemispheres of consciousness. The Inner Zodiac by Michael Tsarion
  12. 12. The Pineal Gland Stargate The ancient Hebrew/Kabalistic “Tree of Life” contains 33 permutations of consciousness - 22 paths, 10 known/drawn sephiroth, and an 11th hidden sephiroth left undrawn in most ren- ditions. Just as the Kundalini serpent coils up the 33 vertebrae of the spine, the Tree of Life is often drawn with a serpent coiling up and around, showing the path to take towards Kether, the crown (chakra). Kundalini serpent-energy is said to rise from the root chakra, coiling up and around the spine until illuminating the crown chakra or the Pineal Gland. The pineal gland is the key organ that operates as our bodies own hyper -dimensional stargate. The Hi- erophants used the symbolism of the Tarot to activate the pineal gland in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between various dimensional worlds – physical and spiritual. The two intertwining serpents (which look exactly like our 33 sequence double-helix DNA) climb a straight, vertical pole (which looks like our 33 vertebrae spine) and end at the “circle of light” crown chakra which has sprouted wings. The origin of this symbology goes back to Atlas’ garden in the Hesperides. This Tree of Life produced golden apples (Starfire) of im- mortality and was tended and defended by the seven Hesperides ably assisted by Ladon en- twined about the tree … The seven Hesperides may correspond to the seven major chakras of the human body. So too, the Tree of Life symbolizes the spinal column, along which the chakras are arranged. Stargates are space-time portals to the Multiverse. The Pineal Gland is a hyper dimensional Stargate in our brain which enables us to Time Travel. The Pineal Gland is considered to be the ultimate part of the nervous system as it is essentially a spiritual antenna, the mystical third eye (Ajna Chakra). The third eye has for aeons been the way to reach higher levels of consciousness without leaving the physical body. Before you can use this spiritual gateway it is necessary to detoxify and activate the pineal gland by changing
  13. 13. your diet and by meditation and visualisation. Nicholas De Vere and Laurence Gard- ner claim that the Anunnaki’s menstrual blood stimulates the pineal gland in the brain, providing an infinite source of melatonin. Kundalini energy conveys an etheric substance called “Chrism Oil” to the third ventricle of the brain. This oil is produced by the male prostrate gland and the female uterus. It is transported to the brain by the serpent force where it mixes with the crystallized energies of “Brain Dews.” These are then released into the bloodstream and into the nervous system. This results in psychological and biological changes of the vibratory rate of the body. The important transformation occurs in con- sciousness. Chrism oil, sometimes called “the Golden oil,” is developed out of sexual fluids and must not be wasted in sexual gratification. Chrism oil stimulates brain cells and awakens a higher intelligence. This spiritual force is willed and directed mentally to the head centre. All mystical schools in the East and in the West believe that ejaculation is detrimental to the mind, body, and soul. When conserved and sublimated, seminal energy tones up the whole system. It makes the senses more acute; it brightens the eyes, and causes the skin to glow. Sexual energy is the force that assists us to raise our psychic abilities. Chrism oil is a spiritually magnetized fluid that transforms human blood. Once the Chrism activates the third-eye we can function with full awareness. Hindu yogis call this oil “soma” or “amrita.” It is the nectar or ambrosia of the gods. Filling the body with light-energy in the form of soma and Chrism oil is the way to divinity. It is thought that amrita flows from the third ventricle by stimulating the palate and uvula with the tongue. This exercise is a fundamental practice among various mystical sects in India. The pine cone symbol is one of the most mysterious emblems found in the ruins of the Indonesians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Christians. The pine cone held the same meaning for all: It symbolized, the “pineal gland” or “Third Eye”, that we all possess. The twin serpents in Egypt—is really an allusion to the ida and pingala channels (the antitheti- cal twin serpents on the caduceus). The central sushumna is, in turn, symbolized by the third, centred drawing (often a pine cone) which on the caduceus is the main rod running north south. The Eye of Horus the True Third Eye
  14. 14. According to Nicholas De Vere the aim of visualization is to assert control of the mind over the body or matter. This process involves focusing energy into the gland centres as- sociated with the dormant Sephira in order to awaken them. In the Starfire Rite there are five spheres which corresponds to the brain and brain stem including the ventricles, the pineal gland, the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus, the thyroid and parathyroid glands in the throat and the Graffenberg gland and or womb. Starting from the top they are: Kether - Brain - Crown - White Gold - Goddess Ti Ah Maat Daath - Thyroid - Knowledge -Pluto - Mauve - Goddess Ah Nah Ouh Tiphareth - Thymus - Beauty -Sun -Red - Goddess -Nin Kur Saag Yesod -Womb - Blue - Mercury - Goddess- Lih Lih Tou Milathara - Graffenberg - Green Silver - Moon - Goddess Luh Luh Ahh Malkuth Kingdom Earth / Moon Yesod Foundation Mercury Hod Glory / Splendour Mars Netzach Victory Venus Tiphareth Beauty Sun Geburah Severity Saturn Chesed Mercy Jupiter - Marduk Daath Gnosis/Knowledge Pluto Binah Understanding Uranus Chokmah Wisdom Neptune or the Sumerian god Enki/Ea Kether Crown Thuban - Thebes - Taurt or Tiamat The tree of life then is the ultimate motif of the evolution of consciousness. Its branches reach into heaven, the spiritual planes. The trunk resides on the material plane, and the roots grow into the earth, or underworld, which represents many subconscious aspects of our soul. The Tarot Tree of Life
  15. 15. Virgo and Scorpio are represented by Lilith and the Serpent Samael. They are inextricably entwined around the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. Scorpio is not the poisonous Scorpion, but the Serpent. In fact Scorpio's ultimate symbol is the Phoenix, a marriage of serpent and eagle from Lemurian times. The loops of the Scorpio M glyph represent the coils of a serpent and the energy of movement in the male sperm. The coils also represent DNA and the transfer of its serpent energy. The closed loop of the M shows Virgo receptivity to the Scorpio energy . The axiom, As Above, So Below, is well represented in both the myths of the constellations above and the myths of events on earth and in the underworld within, which if decoded cor- rectly, reveal the history of the world. “Serpent energy” and the Serpent in its many shapes are omnipresent. It is the Serpent that represents Prometheus’s spark of mind, and the knowledge of who and what we are that leads to immortality. Kundalini is the dormant power present in everyone lying like a coiled serpent in the etheric body at the base of the spine. This coiled serpent has been waiting for the moment when the soul begins to integrate the physical, astral and mental bodies. This ‘spiritual’ force awakens the pineal gland, and opens the third eye to the subtler planes of life. Meditation, study, self -discipline and selfless service influence the soul; this will ensure a parallel awakening of the etheric force centers at the base of the spine. When this process is practiced the awakening will not be dangerous.
  16. 16. The gateway to other parts of yourself is known as a vortex. Your Serpent life-force moves through these portals. Shamans consider Serpent vortices inter-dimension- al doorways. The vortex in our DNA (Pineal Gland) enables vision, illumination, lu- cid dreaming, and memory through (Daath) death. Wine, soma or ambrosia are other names for the sacred Starfire which equates with the mystical Waters of Creation - the flow of eternal wisdom. The Tarot invokes genetic memory which explain feelings and ideas encoded in the archetypes of the (Neters) gods within you which are also part of a “collective unconscious”. Entering the primal world of your archetypes can be thought of as entering a trans-formative spiral into the vortex where an internal structuring process takes place through the images of the Tarot. The menstrual Star Fire (‘Elixir Rubeus’) of the goddess, being essentially regarded as fluid intelligence, was symbolically represented as the all-seeing eye {circle with a dot }, or as the fiery cross (the ‘rosi-crucis’) {The Circle with the cross}, precisely as depicted in the Mark of Cain. A Labyrinth denotes the sacred womb and labia or vulva. It takes us along different elemental pathways on the initiate’s nonlinear journey. This is a symbol of the life-giving, creative power of the feminine. Travelling in then out of the labyrinth is a symbolic death and leads like a vaginal passage straight from the centre. There is a symbolic association of the female vagina with the ‘universal void’, represented by the spiral/vortex and its associations with the symbolism of the Maze or Labyrinth. It im- plies sacred sex, Starfire, the menstrual blood of the Goddess, the “womb of the world.”
  17. 17. The labyrinth can be seen as the vaginal entryway to Mother Earth. The cave is a dark protected place, where inner vision and change can manifest. Our dreams are labyrinthine. The cave is a death lodge for all beings at the end of their lives. The temple is the ultimate devel- opment of the cave. The gate is the entrance into the sa- cred space, the womb of the goddess, where rebirth takes place. The early maze was a figurative vortex; a tornado or whirlpool. The Chartres Cathedral labyrinth is asso- ciated with Melusine and Sheba and their swastika-vor- tex, source of life and life’s blood. The Maze is associated with the root word from which we derive the adjective “to amaze”. The maze represented the shamanic “Spiral Dance of the Vortex” (sacrificial sword dance), and on another level “The Quest for the Holy Grail”. Laurence Gardner ’s book, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark reveals the incredible power of gold”, and gold’s intimate association with the Ark of the Covenant. Combined with his ear- lier book, Genesis of the Grail Kings, a great deal of information can be obtained. Zecharia Sitchin, Laurence Gardner, and Nicholas De Vere associated Star Fire with The Philosopher’s Stone, the Elixir of Life, the White Powder of Gold, Ma-na or Manna, even potentially Morn- ing Dew -- is also an acronym for “Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements”. The phrase was coined by David Radius Hudson, who has done an enormous amount of research on the subject (of which he has in turn shared with thousands of others). The word ORME -- per- haps coincidentally, or perhaps not -- is the same as the Hebrew word which means: the “Tree of Life” which is at the core of the Tarot. Numerous scholars have concluded that Extraterrestrials from Thuban Orion and Sirius came to Earth to mine gold and precious elements, They created mankind in order to work the mines, They also provided the ORME’s natural, organic equivalent, Star Fire, to the kings and patriarchs,. Prior to the human use of the ORME, the kings had access to Star Fire, essentially the menstrual blood of the “goddesses” of the Anunnaki. Laurence Gardner wrote: “It was from the milk of Hathor that the pharaohs were said to gain their divinity, becoming gods in their own right. In ancient Sumerian times, during the days of the original Star Fire ritual, the bloodline kings who were fed with the hormone-rich lunar essence of the Anunnaki goddesses were also said to have been nourished with their own milk -- notably that of Ishtar. Gardner also suggests that “this milk contained an enzyme that was especially conducive to active longevity -- and this was very likely the enzyme that genetic researchers have called telomerase.” This enzyme apparently has unique anti-aging properties, but apart from being present in malignant tumours and reproductive cells, telomerase is not normally expressed in body tissues. “It seems, therefore, that somewhere within our DNA structure is the genetic ability to produce this anti-aging enzyme, but the potential has somehow been switched off.” [Which would also imply the ability to switch it back on again!]
  18. 18. The serpent is the symbol of wisdom and in fact the wise Nagas of Hindu literature are none other than Rishis, Yogis, Adepts Magi, and the Hermetic Magicians. The fact that we question the Hermetic Teachings as a method or a doctrine highlights the limitation of “three dimensional minds,” The Italian physicist Giuliana Conforto’s LUH, Man's Cosmic Game: high- lights our rigid thinking and sees us in tune with cosmic oneness through the fluidity of the Hermetic traditions. Her book is another sign that human history has reached a prelude in the Cosmic Game by integrating metaphysical, scientific, and artistic concepts. In order to under- stand the ‘Game of the Matrix’ we need to experience other “invisible realities” as well. Our “reality” reflects our level of consciousness. Thoth-Hermes has long been associated with the Tarot said by many researchers to be the em- bodiment of the Emerald Tablets. The hieroglyphics of Major Arcana symbolize the archetypes that contain the inner spiritual truth that can transform us. Aldous Huxley christened the Tarot as "Perennial Philosophy," a timeless science of the soul or a time capsule that surfaces when we need it. Its premise is that we can access that realm through direct knowledge of the archetypes within. The Hermetic tradition is one of the oldest spiritual traditions in the world, and while no direct evidence links the ‘Book of Thoth’ to Eastern religions, it shares concepts and terminology with Taoism, Adwaita Vedanta, and Buddhism. In the West, the Emerald Tablets found a home not only in the pagan tradition but also in all three of the orthodox Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and many of the most heretical beliefs of the Gnostics suppressed at the Council of Nicea are also expressed in it. Like Thoth, the Gnostics believed that direct knowledge of reality could be attained through psychological discipline and Self enquiry. They also shared a common view of the universe in which "All Is One," a pattern of creation and decay symbolized by the Ouroboros (the serpent eating its own tail). The Chi Ro of Constantine.
  19. 19. Astrology today forgets that there were originally ten signs of the zodiac when Virgo and Scorpio were one. The constellation Libra was originally part of the constellation Scorpius, represented the claws of the scorpion. It was the Romans who cut the claws off the scorpion and made them into a new constellation named Libra, represented by the Scales of Justice. The zodiac evolved from eight to ten signs and then to 12 signs--the dinosaurs and sea-monsters, be- came the crocodiles, the Makara (Capricorn) and the Dragons of Wisdom. The key to earlier civili- zations is present within the animals of the zodiac wheel especially as the 13th sign Ophiuchus, the Serpent-Bearer near the constellation of Scorpio also formerly symbolized as the phoenix. The Garuda is the symbol of Scorpio in the East. Aquarius’s serpentine connections have been covered up in Greek Myth yet Hindu astrology gives the clue as Aquarius is called Khumba, the pot, which pours soma or amrita, another name for the serpent energy from the Galactic Center or the sacred blood of the serpent goddess to enlighten and heal the world. Cosmologist Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet posits that the myth of Vishnu’s ‘Three Strides’ represent the movement of the Precession of the Equinoxes and the Astrological Ages corresponding to the fixed signs of the Zodiac. But there is a major disagreement over which sign of the zodiac is first. Paul La Violette concludes it is Taurus while PNB concludes it is Scorpio represented by the Garuda, known to be Vishnu’s ‘Vahana’ or Vehicle. PNB teaches that each of Vishnu’s steps through the Ages of the fixed signs, an Avatar comes to Earth to assist the evolution of consciousness which implies that an ancient zodiacal knowledge is embedded in the Hindu myth of the Ten Avatars of Vishnu which are thought to equate with the nine stages of the human embryo. Thousands of years ago Vishnu came to earth in the form of a Tortoise to help the devas gain the wisdom of immortality through drinking amrita. The giant pterodactyl like Garuda seized the pot of amrita or sacred blood from the serpent Vasuki and flew away from the battle-scene and it is believed that four drops of this nectar fell in the Ganges and became the basis for the belief that the Ganges has a mystical power because of the amrita. Kumbh Mela is celebrated every twelve years there as it is believed that after bathing there one can get liberation. A study of the Aquarius glyph makes it apparent that it repre- sents serpent energy and, in those days, it was the serpent spewing forth both fire and water. The Secret Doctrine’s belief that the Age of Virgo-Scorpio or the Phoenix ruled over the Motherland of MU or Lemuria 18 million years ago would seem to support PNB’s theory. Ancient Egyptians originally regarded Hu, the Celestial Phoenix as the giver of Life but changed the New Beginning to Leo as Scorpio or Hu’s influence waned. The Phoenix is a winged Serpent, or Dragon, a combination of the two highest aspects of Scorpio. But by 14,000 BCE. the priests wanted a new god for the Age of Leo. Their new be- ginning, Zep Tepi was an astronomical alignment of the Sun, Orion, and the constellation of Leo. From Zep Tepi onward the precession of the equinoxes has Orion/Osiris ascending. Hu is the ancient name for God, and the sound Hhhhhhooooooo, was the breath of the cosmos. In Egyptian myth the phoenix is revered as an embodiment of Hu who, like Osiris, is a symbol of death and resurrection.
  20. 20. H.P. Blavatsky claimed that the universal “religion of the ancients” was the worship of the Dragon and the Sun. She said, “The tradition of the Dragon and the Sun is echoed in every part of the world, both in its civilized and semi-savage regions. It took rise in the whis- perings about secret initiations among the profane, and was established universally through the once universal heliolatrous religion. There was a time when the four parts of the world were covered with the temples sacred to the Sun and the Dragon; but the cult is now preserved mostly in China and the Buddhist countries. … We find (a) the priests assuming the name of the gods they served; (b) the ‘Dragons’ held throughout all antiquity as the symbols of Im- mortality and Wisdom, of secret Knowledge and of Eternity; and (c) the hierophants of Egypt, of Babylon, and India, styling themselves generally the ‘sons of the Dragon’ and ‘Serpents’.” The drama of human civilization is set against the cosmological backdrop of the Precession of the Equinoxes. Dragons are the archetypes of our priests and royalty. The past is a story of dragon worship. Myths obscure astronomical facts. Animals in myth are stars, and gods are planets. Our evolution is mirrored in the myths of the constellations. Ancient civilizations tracked time and created calendars, and most importantly predicted the cataclysms during the Precession of the Zodiac, symbolized by the Ouroboros; the serpentine ring of the Ecliptic, cycle of Eternal Return. Megalithic temples were tuned to this 26.000 year Cycle in the heavens. They expressed the laws of the universe in the language of time. Time is framed in universal cosmological myth. The Center of the Universe moves around in a circle counter the Circle of the Zodiac. Plato called Precession the Great Year, and each of its “months” is a sign of the Zodiac. Myth was the astronomical scientific language of the dragons. Decoding the heavens meant making zodiacs mimicking heaven on earth in the form of sacred sites, and embodying it in dragon royalty. Ancient ley lines are symbolically related to the circumpolar constellation Draco, the great Dragon. The winged serpent was a symbol of the Gods of Egypt, Phoenicia, China, Persia, and India. The Dracontia built temples dedicated to the Dragon, emblem of the sun, of life, wisdom, and Precession cycles. Once they covered the globe; all that remains are those monoliths seen at Stonehenge, Carnac, and other places. The Serpent Mounds, such as those in Ohio, symbolize the same thing. Besides being silent historic witnesses of knowledge of the mysteries of the cosmic dragon, these temples were used as means of divination by the priests who understood their secrets. Draco is a vast constellation extending through seven signs of the zodiac; also as the seven- headed Draco, each of whose heads is a star of Uras Minor; and again as the pole star. Dragons are synonymous with immortality as they are immune to the cycle of time, and because their lineage is preserved in royal bloodlines. Thuban became the “Eye of the Dragon” as it is the major star in Alpha Draconis. The stars were the Watchers - the seers. Egyptian sovereigns wore the Uraeus serpent (Wadjet) as their crown; the symbol of the serpent of life, a connec- tion to the celestial Ouroboros.
  21. 21. The word Tarot is primordial. In all of the ancient Egyptian zodiacs the Hippo- potamus goddess Tarut was depicted with her consort the crocodile god Sobek on her back. Because Thuban was the pole star 5000 years ago the ancient Egyptians keenly observed it. The Hippopotamus and the Crocodile appear on the planisphere of Denderah and the walls of the Ramesseum at Thebes. In the Book of Enoch, Tarut morphs into the Behemoth which ranges from a dinosaur to crocodile to a mytho- logical creature. The Old Testament is believed to have been based on the Torah. What is not readily admitted, however, is that the Jewish Torah is itself based upon the Aryan Tarot. In fact, the words Torah and Tarot come from the same root, meaning “way” or “law.” The Book of Genesis recorded that the plural word for Tarot was Torot. Therefore, the Torah represents a singular body of laws in book form, and the Tarot signifies the plural version containing 22 individual picture cards of instruction or guidance. The word Torot became Tarot in the English language just as Ishtar became Easter - Tony Bushby (Secret in the Bible) Remains of the original Tarot designs can be seen today in ruins of the temple of Thebes, capital of Egypt in 2000 BC, particularly on ancient ceilings in the halls of the palace of Medinet-Abou. Moreover, the 22 major cards are also found paralleled in the Book of the Dead, etched into stone crypts as vignettes or word sketches thou- sands of years ago - ibid
  22. 22. Taurt was the antetype of later goddesses such as Apt, Wedjat, Nekhbet, Isis, Hathor and Nuith, etc. She is the original Virgin Mary. Male gods such as Atum, Amen, Ptah, Osiris, Anubis and Thoth, etc, were her offspring. The Egyptians called these gods and goddesses Neters who are usually depicted with head of an animal with a symbol above their head representing the constellations from where they originated. All these Neters exist within us in parallel universes, quantum jumping to these other selves al- lows us to understand their significance so we can understand our own significance. Through an understanding of the myths of these Neters, the ancient Egyptians founded the greatest civilization of the ancient world that lasted for millennia. The implications are immense for these Neters are encoded in the Tarot. When we meditate on the images and accept that we are them without judgment we can discover why we are the way we are. Several cards of the Major Arcana, such as the High Priestess, Empress, Justice, Star and Universe, directly refer to Taurt or similar Stellar goddesses of antiquity. The Old Testament is believed to have been based on the Jewish Torah which itself is based upon the Dragon Court Tarot. In fact, the words Torah and Tarot come from the same root, meaning “way” or “law.” Remains of the original Tarot designs can be seen today in ruins of the temple of Thebes, capital of Egypt in 2000 BC, particularly on ancient ceilings in the halls of the palace of Medinet-Abou. Moreover, the 22 major cards are also found paralleled in the Book of the Dead, carved into stone crypts.

  23. 23. Remember that the Dragon is the vehicle that takes you to your True Self. It is a sign of the Goddess Tiamat, the true doer of all your actions. Tiamat created the creatures of the zodiac and possessed the Tablets of Destinies. Dr. Joseph Farrell speculates they link to the I Ching: ... “The Tablets of Destinies appear to have been ‘activated’ only in physical proximity to their pos- sessors— in other words, they may have been activated by the certain specific sequences in the DNA of their possessors, and given the fact that the I Ching is a system of divination with so many odd parallels to the genetic code itself, the connection seems both logical and inevitable: With the I Ching and the Tarot we may be looking at, so to speak, the “software” remains of the Tablets of Destinies.” Farrell, Joseph P. (2011-05-03). Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men: The Sur- viving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda . Feral House. Kindle Edition. Paul La Violette concurs as his aether theory correlates with the Chinese Yin and Yang energies encoded in the I Ching, the Book of Changes. The female Yin energy transforms into the male Yang energy and vice versa in an eternal process of physical changes. The creation of matter from the aether is reflected in most ancient creation myths. From the Hindu creation myth of Vishnu, the Egyptian myth of Atum, the myth of Isis and Osiris, the Greek myth of Zeus and the Babylo- nian creation myth Enuma Elish. La Violette is even convinced that his physics is embedded metaphorically in the Tarot and the signs of the Zodiac. In ‘Genesis of the Cosmos’, Paul La Violette finally writes: ‘If anything, the discovery of advanced science in ancient myths and lore should give us reason to pause and take a broader view of modern achievements, to realize that we may not be the first scientifically ad- vanced culture to inhabit this planet’. Another recurring theme in many ancient creation myths is the primeval waters (Nun) that ex- isted before creation. Water is a metaphor for the aether itself. It is from the primeval waters that the creation of the universe originated. Even the book of Genesis speaks of the Spirit of God dwelling over the waters and how He divided the waters from the waters. God spoke ‘let there be light and there was light’! Finding the inner fire or aether, cosmic electricity, chi, prana, qi and the telesma which Thoth Hermes describes in his Emerald Tablet is also connected to Tiamat’s tablets. This force comes from the heart of the galactic center. The dragon work is to channel this telesma within your cells until a transformation takes place. Words are of Time… Symbols are of Eternity. The Hermetic tradition is one of the oldest spiritual traditions in the world, and while no direct evidence links the Book of Thoth to Eastern religions, it shares uncanny similarities in concepts and terminology with Taoism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. In the West, the Hermetic traditions were encoded in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as well as the heretical beliefs of the Gnostics. The Dragon Tarot, like the Secret Doctrine, gives clues to the evolution humanity. Astrology, Cabala, numerology, and the Tarot were sacrosanct to the Mother Goddess. In fact, Michael Tsar- sion points out the very word Tarot derives from the name of Egypt’s most ancient goddess, Tarut. Thoth- Hermes, Mercury, Odin, Adonis, Tammuz, and Atum Ra, inherited her wisdom. The Dragon Tarot is replete with elemental archetypes.
  24. 24. Correspondences between the I Ching and Tarot. The I Ching and the Tarot are two great prophetic systems which also convey ancient wisdom symbolically. They also reveal the mysteries of the universe and our evolution. Both systems contain a fixed set of symbols, each expressed with formal signs (lines of hexagrams, symbols and symbolic images. The Tarot deck contains 78 cards, while the I Ching comprises 64 hexagrams. The I Ching has 64 hexagrams of equal rank while Tarot cards are divided into 22 Major and 56 Minor Arcana. The number of cards ex- ceeds the number of hexagrams by 14 (78 - 64 = 14). This is an important number for the Tarot since 14 is the number of cards in each suit of the Minor Arcana. Archetypes of the Tarot The first 22 major arcana are a portal to our Multiverse that allows us to take a jour- ney to our primary source of being when we were without egos. The images project all the archetypes within the context of our soul’s journey. Thus, when meditated on we see our own life reflected on these images. The images show aspects of our personal- ity that need to be recognized and not hidden. They bring us important messages in non-verbal symbolic languages; this is why the Tarot has an immense power to activate the imagination, because the images are encoded with the archetypes of our evolu- tion waiting to be unlocked in the deepest recesses of our mind. We begin to do this by delving into the depths of ourselves. Ultimately we must open our hearts to accept things as they are without judgment. The Major Arcana are divided into two groups: 10 (I-X) static principles and 12 (XI- XXII) represent dynamic principles. The Minor Arcana consist of four suits. Each suit, consisting of 14 cards; from ace to ten and four court cards: king, queen, prince and princess. For example, four aces are ruled by the Magus, four twos are ruled by the High Priestess four threes are ruled by the Empress, four tens are ruled by the Magus.
  25. 25. Aquarius’ two sine waves symbolize serpent energy. These lines originally represented two serpents, one good and one evil. Aquarius the Water Bearer is not Zeus’ lover Ganymede as it is not a water sign. Aquarius is an air sign and the khumba, the Grail Cup or pot does not contain water but the aether, rasa amrita or the kundalini energy of the universe. Capricornus, Cetus, Delphinus, Eridanus, Hydra, Pisces, and Pis- cis Australis, Argo and Crater are considered to be under the influence of Aquarius. Aquarius with Capricorn, Pisces, and a part of Sagittarius, consti- tuted the Milky Way Serpent, or Turtle in China, Aquarius is the based on the mythology of the Ancient Egyptians and their concept of a primordial womb called Nun or the Milky Way from which kundalini power emanates. In this quadrant of the cosmos the serpent sym- bolism of Aquarius represents the primordial energy flowing from Nun’s womb. Greek mythology portrayed Pisces Austrinus swallowing the essence of the Milky Way pouring from Aquarius Pot. Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations confirms that Aquarius is not hu- man. It hypothesizes that Piscis Australis symbolizes the Fisher-King, who will be God in the Age of Aquarius! Recall that the Bistea Neptunis was a mysterious sea beast believed to be “ever incarnate in the dynasty of ancient kings” and whose symbol was a fish. References to the Bistea Neptunis or sea serpent in relation to the Fisher-Kings are found in Laurence Gardner’s vari- ous works, such as Bloodline of the Holy Grail and Starfire: Gold of the Gods. AQUARIUS
  26. 26. In The Witness of the Stars, E.W. Bullinger sees Deucalion as a non-human Aquarius. “Aquarius symbolizes Noah’s flood in that the waters pouring from his urn save life and give wisdom. Only Deucalion, son of Prometheus, and Pyrrha survived this ordeal and re-established the life of serpents and drag- ons. Luke 22: 10 is a clue to John the Baptist and the sign of Aquarius, associated with baptism, cleansing and purification by the water of life … kundalini serpent power. The name John stems from Johannes and Oannes, who is: Vishnu in his Matsya Avatar Fish form, the king of Atlantis Poseidon, and the Akkadian Ea and Sumerian Enki shown with water pouring from his shoul- ders. All these gods were connected to Noah’s Ark which held the DNA and blood to seed new generations with their wisdom. As the pole shifts 12 signs of the zodiac and the sun and moon are born from the Galactic Centre in the Milky Way, culminating with Aquarius with a pot containing Amrita rasa, sacred blood, the nectar of immortality. Vishnu’s divine Garuda (half man-half bird) with wings the size of a pterodactyl res- cued the pot from the devastation and drops amrita in four places including the Ganges. People believe that after bathing there during the Kumbha mela one can get mystical powers and enlightenment. Garuda is the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila the Eagle, and the Phoenix is considered another version of Garuda. Hindus equate Aquarius with Varuna, the lord the life force that can both create and transform. Varuna, the lord the lifeEnki /Oannes
  27. 27. The two fishes depicted in Pisces evolved in the Devonian geologic pe- riod which is known as the Age of Fishes, about 400 million years ago when the Tiktaalik, the first fish, evolved feet from fish fins and started to walk on land. The feet of human embryos taking shape in the womb reveal links to prehistoric fish. Feet evolved from fish and conventional astrology says that Pisces rules the feet. Scientists believe that there were two types of fish that evolved from the same parent fish (the ostracoderms are believed to be the parent). One stayed in the sea and one moved onto land to be- come our ancestor. “In early legend Piscis Austrinus was the parent of the zodiacal pair, the ‘Two Fishes’, Pisces” [Allen, Star Names]. In Greek mythology Pisces is associated with the Titan monster Typhon a terrifying force even for Zeus and the Olympians. When Typhon attacked Mount Olympus each god took the form of a zodiacal animal. Zeus shifted into a ram. Aphrodite and her son Eros into a pair of fish which Athena placed in the heavens to become Pisces to commemorate the event. According to Hesiod’s Theogony, Aphrodite was born when Cronus cut off Uranus’s genitals and threw them into the sea and she arose from the sea foam (aphros). She was carried on a cockle shell by a pair of Ikhthyoken- tauroi (fish tailed sea centaurs). Aphrodite like the Babylonian goddess Ashtarte was carried ashore following her watery-birth. These goddesses were set amongst the stars as the Constellation Pisces. PISCES
  28. 28. Kronosaurus was probably the largest marine reptile that ever lived. It was a plesiosaur, a meat-eating marine reptile. It was a member of the Family Dolichorhynchopidae and lived during the early Cretaceous pe- riod. Kronos (Chronos) was the Greek god of time, who ate his own children. Kronosaurus was among the most powerful and ferocious predators of the sea; it was an effective predator on many other marine reptiles, turtles, large fish, ammonites etc. This reptilian carnivore lived in the open oceans, but it had to swim to surface regularly because it was an air breathing animal. Kronosaurus was a short-necked plesio- saur with four long flippers,short neck and a pointed tail. It had a huge head (up to 9 ft/2.7 m long), about one-quarter of the total length of its body. It had very strong jaws and rounded teeth at the back of the jaws which could crush turtle shells.
  29. 29. In ancient Egyptian astronomy, Aries was associated with the god Amon-Ra, who was de- picted as a man with a ram’s head and represented fertility and creativity. During the 2160 year period when Aries ruled the sun, priests built ram sphinxes at Karnak and called Amon Ra “Lord of the Head”. There are several mythological stories involving Aries. Zeus transformed into a Ram in order to escape Typhon. The most famous Aries legend is that of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. The Golden Fleece was guarded by a dragon. Alchemical gold was the Golden Fleece sought by Jason and the Argonauts as well as the Golden Apples secured by Hercules. Laurence Gardner wrote in Genesis of the Grail Kings that the succession of Grail kings, from Cain onward, derived their divine powers from the ingestion of alchemical gold which is starfire. The first decan of Aries is Cassiopeia who in the Egyptian Denderah Zodiac means ‘The En- throned Woman. Cassiopeia is the ‘Woman with Child’ of Revelation, and was called by the Druids, Llys Don, meaning ‘the Court of the Dragon’. Her daughter Andromeda, second decan of Aries, is put in jeopardy by Cassiopeia when she enrages Poseidon the king of Atlantis, and orders her to be sacrificed to Cetus, another sea monster. ARIES
  30. 30. Aries is associated with Jason and the hanging Golden Fleece i.e the hanging goddess in the age of Aries. The famous Greek vase painted by the artist Douris (circa 475 BCE) depicts Jason being regurgitated from the dragon. On the left is the giant serpent dragon with Jason hanging from its mouth. In the left background behind the dragon is the small tree with the ram fleece or goddess hanging parallel to Jason. Here is Athena, sister of Medusa with her spear planted in the underworld who is going to bring him back to life with her sacred blood. This ancient myth is yet another a veiled connection between the Golden Fleece as a symbol of the goddess of wisdom’s sacred blood which appears to be the quest of all solar heroes. Ariadne was closely associated with the Golden Fleece like Helen, an ancient goddess known in Rhodes as the ‘hanging goddess’, but associated with ‘orgiastic rites’ in Sparta. She also gave rise to the seductive Helen of Troy archetype and was the source of the name Simon Magus gave to his sacred whore (a tradition associated with Ashtaroth and Innana). She is also hypothetically linked with Elon, a Celtic goddess associated with Lon- don (London was also called New Troy, and associated with a maze called Troy Town). Both Ariadne and Artemis (and Helen) were called the ‘hanging goddess’ who also used rope swings in their orgies. One myth has the Goddess dying by hanging herself with a knotted rope from a tree. This is consistent with the myth of the fertility goddess who de- scends to the underworld from her sacred tree annually. Frescoes in the Minoan palace at Knossos on Crete depict priestesses with knotted ropes about their necks which may also be a source for the story of Ariadne’s thread. This was a coil of rope worn by Minoan Priestesses and unwoven in sacred rites for use as a magical cord (and the knotted rope mentioned above). The shape of the Knot not only matched the now familiar Labrys-But- terfly-Bee form, but also the knotted band of Hathor and Isis and the curved reed bundle of Innana. Ariadne is a serpent goddess like the bare breasted statuettes who hold serpents found in Crete. Her name pronounce R E Odd Nee has also been identified with that of Rhea. But serpents are not her only animal association. The thread motif is very much like the thread of a spider which enables her to find her way back to her web. This links her with Arachne, the weaver goddess who was transformed into a spider and with the Hopi Spider Woman who carries people between worlds).
  31. 31. The Egyptians believed that the pharaohs were descendants of the gods of Atlantis, which would make the Pharaonic dynasties a branch of the dragon lineage. Egypt was an alchemical experiment to revive the lost civilization of Atlantis—the pre-flood generation which the Bible judged for its wickedness. The Age of Taurus (c. 3,240 B.C.) resurrected Atlantean magic as the ‘Hermetic arts and sciences’. In his work, Arcadia, another name for Atlantis, Peter Dawkins, noted that the Festival of Unification corre- sponds to the Druidic May Day Festival or Beltane. Beltane or Beltaine means ‘the day of Bel’s fire’ or ‘Baal’s fire.’ (In the Celtic dialect, the verb “to tine” means “to light the fire.”) Beltane is dedicated to Bel/ Baal/ Marduk (Babylonian) and Merodach (Hebrew as the slayer of the dragon Tiamat). Bel is lord of the world, father of the gods, creator, and lord of the city of Nippur. He also called Poseidon king of Atlantis which was named after his son Atlas. Taurus began the new Year in Babylon where they re-enacted the cosmic battle of Marduk & Tiamat. A white bull was sacrificed on the 5th day, which the Greek Virgil said represented ‘the white bull (Taurus) who with his golden horns opens the year. The Merovingian race was sired by a water beast known as the Quinotaur. The Quinotaur is the Sumerian god Enki who was born of a bull, although he is generally depicted as a sea-goat. The Greek dragon kings used Taurus symbols, including Zeus, Crete, and the Taurus mountains. The prominent myths are: the Cretan Bull, defeated by Hercules, and the famous Minotaur of the labyrinth slain by Theseus and of Zeus taking the form of an enormous sea bull swimming across the sea to the island of Crete with Europa which decoded means the dragon kings invaded Europe. The Greek festival to the goddess Io is associated with Taurus, Io Zeus bore Epaphus, founder of the dragon royal families of Egypt and Argos, and ancestor of the Danaids, who can be traced back to the Maya Danavas of Lemuria. The Danavas built a global empire with great cities, temples, and monu- ments in Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley and Europe. TAURUS
  32. 32. When the moon has reached the constellation of Taurus, it has passed over an area that the ancients referred to as the sea - the region from Capricorn to the region containing Aries. It was referred to as the sea due to the high concentration of constellations identified as sea creatures within it, Aries being identified as a golden flying ram who flew over the sea. Crete is in a direct line from the natural harbour of Argo, a direction which due the shape of Argo’s harbor, and surrounding coastline, requires that all ships initially take this course. Apart from being a bull, Taurus contains a very bright and red star (Aldebaran), meaning that many took it to be evil. Some forms of Greek mythology associated the constellation with the tame white bull, in some versions Zeus in disguise, that seduced Europa and took her to Crete (Minos), whereas others associate it with the white bull that fathered the Minotaur. The Cretan Bull which fathered the Minotaur was originally calm and sent from Poseidon, but king Minos whom it was sent to fell out of favour with Poseidon, and so in some versions of the story, Poseidon made the bull angry.
  33. 33. GEMINI
  34. 34. In the Egyptian Zodiac of Dendera, Gemini is represented by the sacred union of a god and goddess. In their ritual the reigning king drank the water of life in her sacred blood. Egyptian pharaohs became divine by ingesting ’the blood of Isis,’ a soma-like ambrosia called sa. Its hieroglyphic sign was the ankh or Cross of Life. Painted red, this loop signified the vulva and the Gate of Heaven. In this process the king was assured of his transcendence as he drank her divine blood. As the embodiment of the goddess the sacred prostitute was the holy vessel wherein underworld and spiritual forces are integrated. The gods Osiris, Enki and Arthur married their sisters. Chinese sages called soma red juice the essence of the goddess, the yin principal that gives life to all things. They claimed the Yellow Emperor became a god by absorbing the yin juice of twelve hundred women. In Babylonian myth Inanna makes Dumuzi have 50 orgasm, each orgasm was a power from the goddess who had control of the seven mes, or the seven etheric suns that exist in the core of the Earth In Tantric Yoga, the lovers represent Shiva and Shakti, the deities representing the male and female principles. The act, when properly practiced, eventually culminates in sama- dhi, wherein the respective individualities of each of the participants are completely dis- solved in the unity of cosmic consciousness. Hierogamy between the Dragon Prince and the Swan Maiden resulted in the creation of an extended mind, the development of an interaction where the bounds of individual consciousness were broken and two people joined together with an intensity that created a being greater than the sum of its parts. In alchemy this was called the breath of Ravens from which resulted the birth of the red-gold Phoenix, conceived in the death of Dragons and born in the ascent of the white star. The way these two individuals treated each other was called True or Courtly Love. In Maya astronomy, two fornicating peccaries represent the constellation we call Gemini.
  35. 35. At the end of the Satya Yuga the Sun, Moon and Jupiter collectively entered the constel- lation of Cancer, then depicted as a hard-shelled dragon turtle. Around 4000 B.C., the Babylonians and Egyptians represented Cancer as a Tortoise, a symbol of resurrection. Two thousand years later Egyptians called this section of the solar system the Scarab, an emblem of immortality as the celestial scarab beetle was thought to push the Sun backwards across the solar system symbolizing the precession of the equinoxes. Egyptian initiates were called Scarabs because they pushed the egg, symbol of the sun. In ancient China, the tortoise and the serpent were thought to be spiritual creatures symbolising longevity. Cancer is called the tortoise, and means mass of offspring. Druid priests imitated the walk of the tortoise to perform their sacred rites. And Artemis /Diana, the mother god- dess revered by Druids, wore a tortoise on her breastplate. Diana’s temple at Ephesus was for centuries one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, and was founded by Gorgon Amazons. The Hyperborean Diana of Ephesus is celebrated as Queen of the Stregoi (Witches). Why does she have so many breasts, the lions climbing her arms, the bulls, bees, deer, antelope and other beasts in her skirt and lunar halo? They are symbols of her origins although the statue gives no clues to her werewolf origins even though she has the reputation to be fierce and feminine. In his book, ‘The Two Babylons,’ Alexander Hislop associated the bee with Cancer, the Essenes, Artemis and also with Mithraism. The bee represented the ‘Honey of the Wom- an’ in various pagan religions: A sculpture of the sun god Mithra has leonine form with a Bee between his lips. Why is that? Edward De Vere’s, ‘ Dragon Legacy,’ has an answer. The symbol of the fleur de lys and the bee are inextricably connected as the bee represents the Dracula lineage of divine kings and the lily represents the source of the sacred blood of the goddess. The bee is seen to be sucking the lily’s divine essence. The bee is important to Merovingian royalty as bees make honey, a symbol of the Egyptian dragon’s insight and- wisdom at the royal court of Thebes. The Merovingian kings firmly believed in the hidden CANCER
  36. 36. power of the honeycomb as it relates to the vulva. The Celtic goddesses Morgaine, Sibyl or the Sibillia preside over witches; and in the Ukraine one of the names for ‘witch’ actually means ‘serpent,’ and in Russia it was be- lieved that witches had serpents tails. In Scottish myth one of these serpent goddesses lived inside a tree and often appeared holding a limpet shell containing the ‘milk of wisdom’ which was called the “copan Moire” or “Cup of Mary” in her hands – an allusion to the ‘life-giving’ element and wisdom in the blood of serpents and dragons. This appears to be the origin of the grail cup and the Holy Grail. The Virgin goddess was all powerful in the Mystery Schools and males were prohibited in the inner sanctum of the Queens Chamber, the birth chamber for their bloodlines. Lo- cated at mid-point in the Great Pyramid, the Queen’s Chamber symbolizes the heart of the temple and reflects its sexual spiritual essence. The word “pyramid” literally means “fire in the middle” and refers to the star- fire essence -- Divine Light –the wisdom revered in menstrual blood. Wisdom” refers to the union of male and female essences. This sheds more light on the idea that witches mixed their famous brews and elixirs of serpent venom and blood in their cauldrons, very much like the cauldron such as the one discovered at the Danish Gundestrup. Thus Celtic myths originate in the Queens Chamber of the Great Pyramid which is as- sociated with the Hieros Gamos a sexual ritual that plays out a sacred marriage between a god and a goddess. There is a niche resembling a “womb” in the Queens Chamber and the air shafts are “fallopian (fallic) tubes” leading to the vulva which suggests the practice of sexual magick. Some interpret this ritual as “spiritual birth.” Subsequently, the initiate was anointed with messeh, crocodile oil; origin of the word Messiah. Ceremonial offerings of (holy bread) the wheat sheaf of Virgo and wine (star-fire) are placed on the altar. This is the origin of the Christian being born again” by drinking the blood of Christ and eating the bread of Virgo at the Last Supper,.
  37. 37. ZEP TEPI: THE AGE OF LEO
  38. 38. Zep means Time. Tepi means First. At Zep Tepi, the constellation Orion, the most significant constellation to the ancient Egyptians, was at its lowest position in the southern sky. The Sphinx is positioned approximately 10,500 B.C when a remarkable astronomical arrangement of the Sun, Orion, and the constellation of Leo occurred. Leo, Lion, Crown, King. The legend- ary Gates of the Afterworld were guarded by two sphinxes called Aker de- picted as two gigantic lions looking in opposite directions; one lion faces eastwards to the rising sun , the other lion faces west where the sun sets and descends into the Underworld. Aker opens the gate to the Underworld for the King to pass through. Behind the sphinx towers a pyramid and under it is found a mysterious chamber called the ‘House of Sokar’ in Rostau, the an- cient name for the Giza complex. Sokar, a hawk-headed deity, was identified as Horus, the divine protector of the Nether World, or the Duat and thus, to the After Life. The supremacy of Leo would seem to conflict with the Secret Doctrine’s be- lief that the Age of Scorpio or the Phoenix ruled over the Motherland of MU or Lemuria when the Hierophants from Orion visited earth. Ancient Egyptians originally regarded Hu, the Celestial Phoenix as the giver of Life but changed the New Beginning as Hu’s influence waned in 14,000 BCE to Leo. The Phoenix is a winged Serpent, or Dragon a combination of the two highest aspects of Scorpio. Hu is the ancient name for God, and and the sound Hhhhhhooooooo, was the breath of the cosmos. In Egyptian myth the phoenix is revered as an embodiment of Hu who, like Osiris, is a symbol of death and resurrection. But by 14,000 BCE. the priests wanted a new god for the Age of Leo. Zep Tepi was an astronomical alignment of the Sun, Orion, and the constellation of Leo. From Zep Tepi onward the precession of the equinoxes has Orion/Osiris ascending. The god Hu the Phoenix and Sokar the hawk headed Horus are the original Akers of the Afterworld

  40. 40. The separation of Eve from Adam’s rib symbolizes the separation of the androgynous Adam Kadmon in Genesis. According to Gnostic doctrine, the Serpent Lucifer was known as the Divine Pymander and its sign is Virgo-Scorpio. Adam, as the supposed great ‘Progenitor of the human race’ is, like Adam- Kadmon, made in the image of God. The Hebrew words Zãkhãr and Nëqebãh are, literally translated, linga (phallus) and yoni, (vulva)not as in Genesis, male and female. The androgyne Adam-Kadmon is not a human or divine Being, but symbolizes the organs of procreation. This suggests that the image under which the ‘Lord God’ appeared to his chosen people was phallic. H,P Blavatsky believes that this is undeniably proven by almost all symbologists and Hebrew scholars as well as by the Ha cabala. Therefore Adam is in one sense the Serpent, Jehovah.” (The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 467) 25. The Virgo symbol M and a Vesica Pisces symbol of a Vulva stems from the Egyptian hieroglyph ‘’Mut’ the Mother from which the cosmos emerged, as was Naunet (Nun) in the eight gods -Ogdoad cosmogony. The vulture goddess Mut was an androgyny, having breasts and an erect phallus symbolized by Scorpio’s erect tail. Vedic astrology is the key to the true meaning of the M glyph. It is the released energy – some- times called Kundalini. In Hindu iconography M is portrayed as a three-coiled serpent related to two hieroglyphs in the zodiac: Virgo of the 6th sign and Scorpio the 8th. The Virgo M the ‘tail’ turns back on itself; the sexual energy is not released – hence the Virgin. In Scorpio the ‘tail’ is erect indicating release; Scorpio is the sign relating to sexuality. Serpent and dragon myths originate from the arctic Hyperbo- rea (the Land of Boreas, the serpent.) In Greek myth Eurynome, the Greek Virgo, danced wildly, until Ophion, or Boreas fertilized her. The goddess Mut Vesica Pisces
  41. 41. The Lemurian symbol for Scorpio was part bird and part serpent, lifting Phoenix-like from a nest of flames. The dragon king/priests revered Scor- pio for only when the sun was in this sign could their transmutation occur. Alchemists believe that the astrological sign of Scorpio is similar to the constellation Ophiuchus, also called Serpentarius, the god of healing who carries the caduceus. Both The Ecliptic and The Milky Way pass through the the constellation of Ophiuchus between and above Scorpio and Sagit- tarius. The Winter Solstice makes its heliacal appearance in Ophiuchus before “arriving” in Sagittarius as viewed from the Giza Plateau. Greek mythology relates that Ophiuchus tramples on Scorpio and, having received the elixir of life (sacred blood) from the Serpent, restores Orion to life. According to Greek mythology he also brought the dead back to life by means of blood taken from the side of Astrea, the Greek goddess of justice who replaced Virgo as Libra. SCORPIO
  42. 42. Cosmologist Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea) posits that Vishnu's first three incarnations correspond to the four Astrological Ages corresponding to the four fixed signs of the Zodiac. The Garuda Eagle is Vishnu's 'Vahana' or Vehicle, and correlates with the fixed sign of Scorpio. Thea equates these incarnations as the three strides of Vishnu starting in the age of the Age of Scorpio; following the Precession of the Equinoxes (which moves in reverse order) through Leo, Taurus and Aquarius. Thea teaches that upon each of Vishnu's steps through these Ages an Avatar emerges to assist the evolution of consciousness on Earth. This is a controversial teaching implying that an ancient zodiacal knowledge is embedded in the Ten Avatars of Vishnu.
  43. 43. Sagittarius is both the gateway to the galactic centre and the underworld in mythology. The bulge in the Milky Way is the Galactic Womb from which 200 billion suns were conceived and born. Sagittarius can be seen as the entrance to the birth canal of the galaxy. When the Sun is in Sagit- tarius, as part of the Great 2012 Conjunction, it is birthing the Age of Aquarius. Sagittarius has its roots in Sumerian mythology. Eratosthenes argued that the constellation really represented a satyr and not a centaur. There are in fact two centaurs on each side of the Milky Way, facing each oth- er. Opposite Sagittarius is the constellation Centaurus, the wise son of Apollo. Sagittarius, as a satyr, is impish and malevolent. Yet both have the killer instinct. As Sagittarius prepares to send an arrow through the heart of Scorpius, Centaurus is seen stabbing Lupus, the wolf, with a spear. Lupus is one of the ancient constellations, known as a ‘beast’. Lupus is drawn being held by Centaurus as a spear is stabbed into his throat and then offered as a sacrifice on Ara the Altar to the gods. Apollo represents the race of wolves in Hyperborea; this myth symbolizes the wars between wolves, dragons, satyrs and centaurs. SAGITTARIUS
  44. 44. The Babylonians identified Sagittarius as the god Nergal, a strange centaur-like creature generally depicted with wings and one human head.. A kinnara is a a celestial musician, half-human and half-horse. in Hindu Mythology
  45. 45. CAPRICORN When the Sun was in Capricorn, the Vedic initiate passed through Capricorn on its journey toward reunion with Vishnu in the Milky Way. Vishnu, as the Makara, was also the first avatar in Atlantis, a marine civilization where the denizens of the ocean are represented as a constellations in the cosmic ocean. Saturn is the planetary ruler of Makara celebrated in pre-Christian Rome. This festival was known as the Saturnalia in honour of Saturn/ Chronos, the god of time. According to Tracy R. Twyman the ‘Cult of the Goat’ began with the star system, Capricorn, which worshipped Enki, a prototype of Satan; consort of Lilith/Eve. The Anunnaki were the serpents, dragons and goats of the Nephilim referred to Gen 1:21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Yet the Bible doesn’t go into detail and we are generally unaware that Leviathan is Tiamat, the Matriach of the animals of the zodiac. Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet’s (Thea) book, Gnostic Circle, posits that the origin of the zodiac is found in the Rig Veda. The first clue is that Noah’s Ark is a cos- mological symbol rather than a physical boat. Ark originates from the Sanskrit word arka which means ‘the sun. The ‘arc’, ‘arch’ and arc-seconds of the circle of the sun are all kin to this Sanskrit root, as are the words ‘archeologist’ and ‘archetype’. Enki, the sea goat is also the origin of archetype.
  46. 46. In other Vedic mythology Vishnu is described floating upon the vast ocean of space on the coils of Ananta-Sesha, the great Naga Serpent of Eternity. This can also be seen as the basis of Genesis1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Who is this god moving on the waters? Vishnu, is called the eternal God and He is declared to be the embodiment of mercy and goodness, ‘The “Spirit of God” moves on the dark waters of Space’ (SD 2:591). The Biblical myth of Noah in Genesis 6 too is based on Vedic mythol- ogy in which Vishnu, the Preserver, becomes Makara a giant sea mon- ster (Matsya) as it outgrows various Pots (Kumbha/ Ages of Aquarius). Vishnu warns Manu of impending flood and tells him to build an ark to preserve the seeds of the previous zodiacal animals to repopulate the galaxy. The ark is attached to Vishnu’s horn, and he uses his serpent, Shesha Ananta (Time) as a rope. Thea infers that symbols of the Manu myth are referring to the backward movement of the Precession of the Equinoxes, starting from 0° Aries, moving directly into the Age of Pi- sces, then to the Age of Aquarius, and onward to the Age of Capricorn. Head of makara, a mythical sea dragon combining characters of el- ephant, crocodile and serpent, acts as protector on the roof of the Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Tibet.
  47. 47. Aliester Crowley’s The Book of Thoth urges us to learn for ourselves, the story of the stars. This starts with the four Cherubic Stars encoded in the sphinx; Aldebaran, Regulus, Antares and Fomalhaut. What about the four creatures of a sphinx? Look to four of the brightest stars in the zodiac; Their primary importance over the other ‘fixed’ stars is due to the fact that at the time of the initial revelation, fixed in the Age of Taurus, they rose helia- cally with the Sun at the four Cardinal points of the seasons, both Equinoxes and Solstices form a ‘Grand Cross’ in the sky: Aldebaran: The red eye of Taurus the Bull; Watcher of the East Regulus: The heart of the Lion; is the brightest star in the constellation Leo; Watcher of the North Antares: The Scorpion’s heart ; is a red super-giant star in the Milky Way galaxy; Watcher of the West Fomalhaut: Located in Aquarius, Fomalhaut, is a reddish star in the mouth of the Southern Fish, Piscis Austrinus (not to be confused with the constellation Pisces; Watcher of the South The fixed signs are power signs known collectively as the serpent signs of the zodi- ac, and each element is distinct. In Taurus—fixed earth—the power is latent and the serpent is coiled up energy. In Leo—fixed fire—the power is active and the serpent is uncoiled, In Scorpio—fixed water—the power has gone into the subconscious and the shadow and needs to be illuminated and made conscious through self-transfor- mation and self-knowledge. And in Aquarius—fixed air—the universal serpent of wisdom is reflected in the power of the individual will. FOUR BRIGHTEST STARS IN THE ZODIAC

  49. 49. Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea) contends that the Hindu Line of Ten of avatars is a parable of evolution that is best understood with esoteric knowledge of astrology. She holds that Vishnu, the Preserver, corresponds to the fixed (preserving) signs of the Zodiac (Scorpio, Leo, Taurus and Aquarius), and that his ten incarnations appear only during Astrological Ages ruled by fixed signs. To support this controversial claim, Norelli- Bachelet cites the famous Three Steps of Vishnu mentioned in the Rig Veda (1.154) which likens Vishnu to the Lion [Leo], the Bull [Taurus] and the Man [Aquarius]. This view implies that an ancient zodiacal knowledge is embedded in the Ten Avatars of Vishnu. (see History of Astrology) Thea concludes that Scorpio was the first sign when Vishnu rode the Garuda, symbol of, Scorpio, the only sign represented by more than one animal. This is because Scorpio a.k.a the phoenix is the most complex and powerful sign in the zodiac. Scorpio was originally represented by the serpent in Egyptian, Chaldean and Hebrew astrology therefore when the serpent and eagle are merged the phoenix sees and understands all things. The Phoenix is the symbol of immortality and rebirth--the bird consumed by fire only to rise from the ashes --represents the highest form that a Scorpio can hope to attain. Buddhism portrays the Phoenix as Garuda, the "Bird of Life," a golden bodied bird with an eagle's beak and wings and a human body. It is so large that it can cover the Sun and turn day into night.

Each animal has its own color: the Dragon is the Green of Spring, the Phoenix is the red of Fire, the Qing (Ki-ling) and more recently Baihu(white tiger) of Autumn the glittering white of metal (of swords), and Xuanwu the Tortoise Black, for water. In the west, they correspond to the dragon, phoenix, unicorn, lion and sacred bull on Occidental cosmology.. There are numerous other sacred beasts, but these are the most primal to use. The dragon is a member of the Hindu Naga family of serpentine creatures. The mortal enemy of the dragon is the phoenix. In both China and Japan, dragon and phoenix symbolism is associated closely with the imperial family -- the emperor (dragon) and the empress (phoenix) which represents the yang principle; often portrayed surrounded by water or clouds. Draco, Cepheus and Cassiopeia was known to the Chinese as Ziwei, the Purple Palace. Surrounding it was a wall delineated by 15 stars, divided into western and eastern sections. The eastern wall started in Draco and went through Cepheus into Cassiopeia, while the western section was in Draco, Ursa Major and Camelopardalis. The East End of the Great Wall of China at Shan-hai-kuan is known as "the Head of the Dragon".

The Universe is here to teach us love and forgiveness so we can get off the wheel of karma. Access the Soul through Tarot. In the Ra material, the Tarot is analyzed in terms of archetypes. Any process of development or creation is seen to involve these archetypes the concept is multifaceted and complex. See Book IV of Law of One. David Wilcock posits that there are 22 experi- ences needed for an entire spiritual awakening and they are known as “archetypes”… and these are written by the Mind of the Universe long before we were created. Supposedly the 22 major Arcana of the Tarot to have a synchronistic resonance or patterns of thought with the cosmic template that sustains the personal holographic matrix. When we contemplate an image of the Major Arcana we have encoded that key with a valuable message that we need to hear now. Close your eyes and tune into that message as the subconscious mind is guided by the higher Self which will guide you to find the right image at the right time. Im- ages are the preferred language of the mind to activate the latent strands of DNA. Constant reference to the imagery of major arcana can restore higher levels of consciousness of our original blue print from the Universal Mind. David Wilcock believes that our minds maybe
  54. 54. hard wired to experience specific archetypes in various lifetimes and until all 22 archetypes are experienced it is not possible to shift into the fourth dimension. Immersing oneself in the imagery of these archetypes will keep the ego from wasting its energy in resisting what the Universal Mind has encoded in our personal bio-computer matrix. In Wilcock’s words,” this provocative model suggests that humanity is on the verge of a near-spontaneous meta- morphosis into a more highly evolved state of consciousness. What are the ramifications of this? Imagine activating 100% of our 2 strand DNA, plus 10 additional strands! We will go from using 10% of our brain to becoming a multi-dimensional being with psychic, telepath- ic, and manifestation abilities beyond anything we’ve ever dreamed of. Ethno- botanist and consciousness guru Terence McKenna agrees, calling the Hermetic teachings “a formula for a holographic matrix” that is mirrored in the human mind which offers us its only hope for future survival. Tarot is invaluable when all psycho therapeutic work has failed to determine the next step to be taken for the souls evolution for the images will identify the karmic challenge and even in the time frame in which it occurred. It is “Zero-Point Medicine,” by which we can renew, sustain and realize our potential. Every Tarot key has an astrological correspondence. Af- ter birth, we attract certain energies which explain why we have cycles of positive and negative relationships. And because our own actions constantly create karma we have our ups and downs in life. As long as we remain unaware of these forces we are subject to them. Only we can overcome and transform them. When we transform the positive and negative energies operating within us we can control our own fate. The world is also subject to the same forces from the cosmos. The Tarot is rooted in the spiritual diversity of ancient civilizations for Divine Consciousness is experienced in infinite forms through the process of evolution. This unity in diversity is the secret to ev- erything in a conscious life. The Tarot is a powerful oracle to commune with the universe and is as relevant as ever for the oracle is where the individual soul communes with the Universal Soul. Whereas logic speaks to the logical left side of our brain, oracles communicate through symbol and image, directly to the intuitive right-side of the brain. We are overwhelmed with media input. We need to attain equanimity by stimulating and using the artistic/symbolic right- side of the brain which will give balance to life. Quiet meditation on each of the keys will awaken within each person, personal insights to support the transformation that must take place within each soul. The 22 Major Arcana (Secrets) relate to the “universal principles” of life and “archetypal” personality types. Twelve keys represent the signs of the zodiac and ten represent the planets in our solar system. They are multi-dimensional as they portray the (Neters) gods and goddesses from many civilizations representing different states of consciousness. Write the results down in your Journal regularly, by doing so, you enhance your intuition and place yourself in direct communion with Universal Consciousness. The mystery schools reveal the workings of the Cosmic Laws that can reprogram your DNA to integrate your personality with your Soul. Find a quiet time every day, no mat- ter how overwhelmed you are feeling to contemplate in silence. One of the easiest ways to activate your DNA and accelerate your Soul consciousness is to investigate who you are. Osho says that not knowing oneself makes life meaningless. You may know everything, only you do not know yourself—and that would be the first thing to know.
  55. 55. 1.The Magus: mars and mercury The Magus, like the gods, received their mystical powers of longevity, authority, and creativity from the lunar female essence. Odin acquired supremacy by drinking the wisdom from the cauldron that symbolizes the womb of the Goddess. Odin’s theft of men- strual magic paralleled that of Indra, who stole the sacred fluid Soma -- from Soma all the gods were born. In Sumeria, the sacred blood was called the Gra-al. The Greeks called it “ambrosia’; which supercharged the pineal third eye, with spiritual insight. The very lives of the gods depended on the miraculous power of menstrual blood. The Magus can draw upon his inner strength to make a goal a reality for he has at his dis- posal all the elements and their counterparts: the cauldron, indicating the water of life and wisdom; the spear, indicating air and intellect; the pentacle, earth and the body, and the caduceus/wand, fire and will-power. The Magician represents the powers that you possess to create meaning and purpose in your life. He tells us that this creative power is in and around you and always available. He teaches how things work in the world by understand- ing the structure underlying its cycles and rhythms. Challenge: Although you are eloquent, charismatic, clever, witty, inventive and persuasive, beware of dominating those around you. Although these qualities are not generally criti- cized by society they are different personalities that need to be unified under the guidance of your inner guru. Pay attention to everyday life. Remember all the power you possess comes from a higher level. You have abused power and you have an overpowering ego, which makes you selfish, arrogant, and insensitive. Your inflexibility causes you to row against the tide and sets you up for failure and loneliness. Your lack of willpower confuses your life’s purpose. Do not use the forces of nature for selfish purposes. You are blocking your creative energies. Learn by experimentation – try new things.
  56. 56. The High Priestess or Sacred Womb Priestesses prepared a ‘drink of immortality’ made from menstrual blood, for Egyptian pharaohs who became divine by ingesting this soma-like am- brosia called Sa. Its hieroglyphic sign was the same as the sign of the vulva, a yonic loop like the one on the Tjet, Ankh or Cross of Life. Painted red, this loop signified the female genitalia and the Gate of Heaven. Amulets buried with the dead specifically prayed Isis to deify the deceased with her magic blood. The High Priestess advises you to take time to listen to your inner voice. She symbolizes the power of the unconscious forces in the world that give form and purpose. She has experienced life so she has empathy for your struggles. This demonstrates that life survives death. By taking on new forms she can lead to deep wisdom, but she can also lead to madness. Number two makes you acutely conscious of others and as you are socially aware of people your stimulation is derived from them. This makes you a diplomat, go-between, mediator or peacemaker. Your best service is through your cooperative nature. This key means that you intuitively understand the answer to a problem although not always consciously. You may well become the power behind the throne. The number two suggests more than one, yet in reality we are all One. Challenge: You should pay a great deal of attention to your health through your eating habits so that you have the energy to be of service to others. Seek new and hidden paths to wisdom. Learn to question the lessons of the unconscious for it does not always lead to wisdom. Question how you have divided your world by judging yourself and others. Your excessive focus on unimport- ant details and perfectionism can prevent you from listening to your intuition. This will cause passiveness, weakness, and fear of life. You may be expressing your emotions in a negative way. You lack self-confidence and are therefore indecisive and afraid to make decisions. You can be deceitful, two-faced, oversensitive, and easily depressed if your dreams are thwarted by those close to you. 2.The high priestess: vulcan -uranus & moon
  57. 57. 3.The empress: jupiter & venus The Empress ‘ blood carries the cosmic energy flowing through all living things is surrounded by her Venus birds the dove, the ibis, the pelican of self surrender, the white eagle of salt, the swan, and the phoenix. They unite to proclaim the magical power of the Yoni and to crown the powers of female creation with the title “Gate of Heaven.” Moreover, this compound symbol of the pure essence of female sexuality and spirituality hints at the “pre-eminence” of woman in magical work. The Empress is pure consciousness itself, the knowledge that returns us to the source of who you are. She is an aspect of the subconscious mind, ruled by Venus, the main astrological symbol for our affections and feelings. Venus works in conjunction with Jupiter to increase productivity, love, abundance, and fertility. The Empress represents the veil of Maya (illusion). She represents the need to control the cosmic forces that are not controllable and often represents smothering mothers. Challenge: Your natural talents — acting, social work, counseling and the law — give you a love of life through the pleasure of relationships, entertainment and new experiences but these talents, if not used prop- erly, can be a diversion from knowing who you really are. Avoid work that confines you as you need to move around to express yourself in order to do your best work enthusiastically. It is important to understand that all emotions stem from the pure essence of love. Thus, fear and hate are its opposite. Pity and sentimental- ity represent perversions, contortions or negations of the love quotient. Do not express your emotions in a negative way because they reinforce negative behavior patterns. As you want recognition you tend to exag- gerate situations so that friendships may well be superficial. You may try to avoid responsibility and live a life of instant gratification.
  58. 58. 4.The emperor: Aries & earth The Emperor of Crocodopolis, Sobek, was the original Pendragon of warriors and protected the pharaoh from evil magic. The Egyptian word for crocodile fat was Messeh from which the term Messiah is derived. To be anointed with crocodile oil, was to absorb powerful, unchanging dragon energy and assimilate this into the body. Moshe, or Moses, was a ritual title, and was a reference to the crocodile fat used in temple and pyramid ceremonies. The Emperor rules the external world that exists outside the conscious elements in the material world, the unity and order in your life. His God-like ability enables him to discern the truth in any given situation. It is his wisdom to handle affairs systematically that has placed him on the throne. His strength gives stability to accept external forces out of our control. True intuition is based on number four. This key indicates that you have the ability for leadership and spiritual growth through ideas, experience, higher education, travel, religion and deep philosophical thought. The Emperor governs the need for honesty, fairness and respect for the rights and freedom of others. He is a solid founda- tion in times of change and uncertainty. Challenge: Control your own sensual desires and overcome the tendency to be rigid and inflexible. Examine all external forces that prohibit the fulfillment of your destiny, discarding all outgrown com- forting myths. Don’t risk stagnation and keep a ceiling on desires, which lead to spiritual or material decline. Prepare for unseen difficulties through carelessness, impulsive spending and grandiosity. Have compassion for those who you dislike, stop listening to the head, and listen to the heart. Renun- ciation leads to joy; attachment brings discontent. Be in the world, but not of it.
  59. 59. 5.The hierophant: mercury & taurus The Hierophant Moses,like Hermes, meets the great dragon Pymander on Mount Sion who instructs him as to the true nature of the universe.Moses is given the Ark of the Covenant -- a processional coffer to house the writings of the law.The Ark was also a power source as a Vesica Pisces was the connecting link between the Cherubim on the Ark's cover -- as shown and described by ka-gold's Vesica Pisces. David Radius Hudson has made a persuasive argument that the Ark of the Covenant was a device for transporting the Starfire and the ORME, aka the Philosopher’s Stone. The Hierophant is not bound by the conventional laws of society. Each soul’s path is unique and you may be guided to traditional religion, prayer, contemplation and meditation. All ways will take you to the source of who you are eventually. Ignore the soul at your peril! The nature of Mercury (Hermes) expresses itself in our mind as light, wisdom, intelligence, and quickness —especially in an intellectual sense. He was the messenger of the gods, and also, like Jesus, the psychopomp or conductor of souls to the netherworld. Mercury rules number five and represents intelligence, movement and communication, the inner teacher and the inner voice. Sages have always said that ‘Self Realization’ comes when you awaken to the awareness of the soul. True inner hearing does not involve spirits, clairvoyance or visions from the astral planes. With the help of Taurus/Mercury, your conscious mind, studies the facts and places them in your subconscious data base which, in a flash of realization, sends the analysis back to the conscious mind. This is true intuition based on reason. Challenge: Assess your spiritual growth and recognize the limitations of fame and glory. Learn to act and not react, and know that you are more than a collection of five senses. Don’t take the meaning of events too literally, be gullible, or over analyze everything before taking action. Look for the deeper meaning to the question. Strive for spiritual truth by working with the practical aspects of life. Be open to meeting a spiritual teacher who guides you towards your Real Self, not the ego driven self. This key is a reminder not to stay too grounded in the material world, as there is a heavy price to pay for deviating from the path of spiritual truth.
