Astrotheology (part 2)

Why do the same stories, dates, numbers, and symbols show up repeatedly in religious myths and texts all across the ancient world?

“This is related to the winter solstice or midwinter festival when the Sun is at the least powerful point in its cycle in the northern hemisphere. They said that on the solstice, our December 21/22nd, the Sun had 'died'. Three days later - the 25th - they said the Sun was born or born again. Thus we have a long line of Sun gods given the 'birthday' of December 25th. The Jesus of the Gospels is a symbol of the Sun and the stories include a host of other Mystery school knowledge and esoteric concepts. -David Icke, “Tales from the Time Loop”

“For three days, December 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, the Sun rises on the exact same latitudinal (declinations) degree. This is the only time in the year that the Sun actually stops its movement northward or Southward in our sky. On the morning of December 25th the Sun moves one degree northward beginning its annual journey back to us in the Northern Hemisphere, ultimately bringing our spring. Anything steadily moving all year long that suddenly stops moving for three days was considered to have died. Therefore, God’s Sun who was dead for three days, moves one-degree northward on December 25th and is symbolically born again!” -Jordan Maxwell, www.jordanmaxwell.com

Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, is the star in the East. On Dec. 24th it aligns with the three brightest stars in Orion’s belt which are called (and have been called since ancient times) the “three kings.” The three kings line up perfectly with Sirius pointing to the exact spot in which the Sun will rise the next morning. The larger constellation in which this takes place was known to the ancients as the “manger” or the “cradle” which is visible just before dawn on Dec. 25th. So the three kings or three magi effectually “follow” the star in the East to the manger, the birthplace of God’s Sun at the Winter Solstice. “Easter” also derives from the Eastern Star Sirius. The three gifts of the magi are Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold. Frankincense is an amber resin that was burned at solar temples, Myrrh was known as “tears of the Sun,” and Gold too long represented the Sun in the ancient world.

The recurrent “virgin” theme represents the constellation Virgo, which is Latin for virgin. “The ancient glyph for Virgo looks like an M which explains the M names of “virgin mothers” like Jesus’ mother Mary, Adonis’ mother Myrra, Buddha’s mother Maya, and Horus’ mother Isis-Meri. Virgo is also called the House of Bread and the zodiacal symbol shows a woman holding a chaff of wheat, representing the August/September time of harvest. Bethlehem also means “House of Bread” and is a reference to the constellation Virgo, not a place on Earth. At its lowest point the sky on Dec. 22nd the Sun resides in the Southern Cross or the Crux, a cross formed by stars symbolizing the crucifixion. After steadily traveling downward since the last solstice, the Sun stops movement at the Southern Crux for 3 days then rises again - the Son dies on the cross and after 3 days is resurrected.

“No people of the ancient world believed the Sun to be God. That belongs in the disinformation file. In point of fact, every ancient culture and nation on Earth have all used the Sun as the most logically appropriate symbol to represent the glory of the unseen Creator of the heavens. Here it is important to remember two points. First, with the exception of Japan, the ancient world mythologies always understood the Sun to be masculine in qualities, and the moon feminine. Second, the English language is derived from the German. In the Germanic, the word Sun is spelled Sonne (Son). The two words can (and have been) used interchangeably … Ancient man saw in his male offspring his own image and likeness, and his own existence as a father was proved by the person of his son. Thus, it was assumed that God’s Sun was but a visible representative of the unseen Creator in heaven. So it was said, ‘when you have seen the Son, you have seen the Father.’ Said another way is ‘The Father is glorified in His Son’ … The ancient peoples reasoned that no one on Earth could ever lay claim of ownership to the Sun. Such a magnificent heavenly body must belong to the unseen Creator of the universe. It became, figuratively speaking, not man’s but God’s Sun. It was only a short hop and skip to the understanding that God’s Sun was ‘The Light of the World’ … Logically even if man himself dies, as long as the Sun comes up each day, life on Earth will continue forever. Therefore, it was said in the ancient texts that everlasting life was ‘the gift’ that the Father gives through his Sun.” -Jordan Maxwell, www.jordanmaxwell.com

To ancient man the most dangerous, feared enemy was the unknown darkness of night, thereby making the Sun, the light, heaven’s gift to the world. Without its light we cannot see, without its warmth we cannot move, without its energy our food cannot grow. Our very lives depend on the energy emitting from the Sun, making it our life and savior. God so loves the world that he has given his only begotten Sun so that we may have ever-lasting life. That is why in Deut 4:24 and Heb 12:29 God is “consuming fire in heaven.”

The Prince of Darkness is the Dark Evil, the D-evil, Devil. God is the Good; God’s Sun is the Light of the World, and the Prince of Peace. The Peace he brings is Solace – Solace again from the word Solar, meaning Sun. In the Egyptian personification, the Prince of Darkness was known as “Set” and the Sun was known as “Horus.” So every night at Sun-Set the Dark Prince overtakes the world. But every morning the Sun is born again at Sun Rise, Horus is risen on the Horizon. This is where we get the word “Hero,” the cheer “Hooray!” and also why an interpretation of the zodiac is a Horo-scope.

“At daybreak this wonderful newborn child, God’s Sun is Born Again, Horus is Risen. Even today when the Sun comes up we see it on the ‘Horus-Risen’ or ‘Horizon.’ His life was also divided into 12 parts or steps across Heaven each day: 12 Horus = 12 Hours. This is the origin of the modern 12 Step Program. Horus is the (new-born) Sun, or the Bringer of the Light. In Latin, Light Bringer is Lucis, or Lucifer, or Luke … God’s Sun brought His wonderful light to the world, and distributed it over 12 months. So it was said, God’s Sun had 12 companions, or helpers, that assisted His life-saving work. So it was, God’s Sun had 12 apostles (or months) that followed Him religiously through His life. Incidentally, now you know why the American jury system has 12 jurors who help bring the truth to light, with the ‘Light of Truth’ ... Keep in mind God’s Sun symbolically represented the light of truth, but was condemned by His enemies who could not endure the light of truth in their life. When we are confronted with the harsh realities of life, the light of truth, which we do not wish to face, and which runs counter to our views, such truth is judged in your mind, or judged in the temple area of your brain, and put to death in your head! Therefore God’s Sun –The Truth and The Light – is put to death at Golgotha, or Place of the Skull, located somewhere between your ears! This putting to death of the light of truth in your mind is always accompanied by two thieves: Regret for the past and Fear of the future. And of course God’s Sun goes to His death wearing a corona – Latin for Crown of Thorns.” –Jordan Maxwell, www.jordanmaxwell.com

So your “temples” or at the Golgatha (which means Place of the Skull), God’s Sun, the light of truth, is judged and crucified along with the two thieves of past and future. The Sun’s corona, the plasma atmosphere around the Sun, is then allegorically used as the Son’s (Latin translation) Crown of Thorns.

Cultures all over the ancient world kept track of time and seasons based on the movement of the Sun. They invented circular sundials and sun calendars which recorded daily and yearly time (lunar calendars recorded months). This method of circular solar-based time keeping was used by the ancient Mexicans, Mayans, Incas, Aztecs, Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Celtics, Aryans and more. Out of these circular, pictorial Sun calendars developed the Holy cross. The Sun is portrayed on a cross – a circle with perpendicular lines intersecting in the middle, the horizontal axis representing the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, the vertical axis representing the Summer and Winter Solstices. This is the reason you often see a circle around Christian, Celtic, ancient and modern crosses.

“Since the Earth experienced 4 different seasons, all the same and equal (in time) each year, the round Sun calendar was divided into 4 equal parts. This is also why we have, in the Bible, only 4 Gospels. Of this point, there can be no doubt. The 4 Gospels represent the 4 seasons which collectively tell the entire story of the life of God’s Sun. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This is why the famous painting of ‘The Last Supper’ pictures the 12 followers of the Sun in four groups (of three) the seasons!” -Jordan Maxwell, www.jordanmaxwell.com

The Book of Mark is the Book of Mars. The planet/archetype Mars is the ruler of Aries which makes the Book of Mark, in zodiacal terms, the Book of Aries. The word “arise” comes from Aries, as it is the first house of the zodiac where the sun arises during the spring equinox/Easter. Aries month is April which comes from the Latin “aperio,” meaning to open or begin. Just as Aries is the first zodiacal sign, April was (and still is in many cultures) the first month of the calendar year. To the ancients, the spring equinox was a more appropriate calendrical beginning because it is when the day-time hours officially overtake the night-time hours. The Sun is resurrected, its light triumphs over darkness, and Gaia begins to bloom again.

The Book of Luke is the Book of Leo. Luke is Latin for Lucius meaning Light and the House of Light is Leo the Lion. Lions are used the world over to symbolize the Sun and its rays which resemble the lion’s yellow face and flowing mane. Christ (the other Sun symbol) is often called the “Lion of Judaea.”

“In Celtic Ireland the name Leo was Lugh, another solar hero and mystic. In Wales he was Llew, to the Romans Lugus, to the Sumerians Lughal. Its not the same dude on walkabout, it’s the Astrological sign of Leo. In the Christian iconography we have one of the Evangelists represented by a Lion. In the Nativity scenes we see 4 animals around the cradle of the Son/Sun king. One of these is also a Lion. Christians probably believe that there was one in the area and just happened to wander into the inn to take a peek at sleeping Jesus. Good thing it wasn’t very hungry. -Michael Tsarion, Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology

The Book of Matthew or Matt is actually Maat, the Egyptian Goddess. Maat is almost always symbolized blindfolded holding the Scales of Justice which relates astrologically to Libra. Libra was the last sign officially added to the zodiac, which is why Matt was the last of the 12 to join. He is also symbolized by the Eagle in Christian iconography because Aquila the Eagle is the closest animal constellation to Libra.

“Maat is pronounced Mayat. She is the Mahat of the Brahmins, the Meath of the Celts, the Tiamat of the Skalds, the Maia of the Romans and the Mara of the pagans. Now in the Bible, we read that Matthew was the disciple that the other 11 did not want to accept. The reason for this was that he was a tax-collector, (perfidious company in any age). However behind all the hyperbole, we have a secret concealed. The symbol of the tax-collectors has always been the scales or balances. This is because they did not only want currency, but they took grain and livestock also, and their lackeys would carry large scales around. It is the same today in rural, eastern communities.” -Michael Tsarion, Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology

Finally, the Book of John is the Book of Aquarius. John is for January which is the month corresponding to Aquarius. The symbol for Aquarius is a man carrying/pouring a pitcher of water which is why we have Baptism and John the Baptist. John’s death by beheading is another astrological allegory whereby on August 29th, John’s (Aquarius’) head/star moves just above the horizon, while the rest of his body/constellation remains below the horizon. At exactly this time, on dusk August 29th, the sun sets in Leo (the kingly sign representing Herod) and so Herod beheads John.

“John comes from Jahan or Jahn, which comes from the earlier Ionnes, Oannes (the Fish god). Jahan or Jahn gives us other names, like Jane, Joan, Janus and even Jasus or Jesus. It eventually gives us the word Jahnuary or January … During January (Aquarius), the Nile waters were the purist, so the Egyptians would collect it for use in telestic rites. The sign of Aquarius became associated with baptism, cleansing and purification by water. This was borrowed by the Israelites and finds its way into the Christian traditions. So now we see the gospels clearly detailed as signs of the zodiac. The sun-king must pass through these signs. They are his ‘chroniclers’ (‘chron’ means time specifically relating to the round of the zodiac). They are his measurers, his ‘Apostles’ (‘post’ means demarcation post, a colure of the zodiac). They are his ‘Disciples’ (‘disc’ means round circle, as is the zodiac).” -Michael Tsarion, Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology

“The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun.” -Thomas Paine

Thanks Robbie, here's another good article about another Christian co-opted holiday, the spring equinox festival of Easter.

Easter: Christian or Pagan?

As a former Catholic, I'm always looking for new proof that the bible is not fact, but rather a book of symbolism. I'm glad I came across this site. But the apostle John, the writer of one of the Gospels and John the Baptist are 2 separate people. Either way, you brought up great points.

The living creatures, however, are different from those in Ezekiel. The ones in Ezekiel had four faces, whereas, the ones in Revelation have one face each. The ones in Ezekiel had four wings, and these have six wings. The faces of the living creatures represent the four faces of the Lord Jesus Christ as portrayed in the four Gospels.
Lion - Lion of the Tribe of Judah - Matthew (LEO°
Calf - Redeemer, Suffering Son of Man - Luke (TAURUS)
Man - Righteous Servant; Impeccable Humanity of Christ - Mark (AQUARIUS)
Eagle - Heavenly Son of God who came down from Heaven - John (SCORPIO)

These are the 4 signs of the fixed cross. Putting aries and libra in doesn't make any sense. I think you put too much meaning in the origins of the names of the evangelists.
