After landing on the Martian surface the Pathfinder waited for sun rise so that it could power up its solar panels and begin the new Martian Day with full operations. Meanwhile the dance of the sun and the moon was occurring at the Earth. At 19:36 UT the moon passed the sun and began a new lunar cycle. By then the zenith over JPL had passed over the celestial Nile, Jordan, Euphrates, Urantes, and Tiber, and completely over the Minotaur bull-man of Taurus-Orion. It was now above the Milky Way in the Land Flowing With Milk and Honey. At the Milky Way between the feet of Perseus and the goat at Auriga's back is the only break in the circle of the Milky Way. It was here that Moses crossed the "Reed Sea". In Auriga we see the mountain where Moses was given the Ten Commandments. A close inspection of the constellation of Auriga, which contains Capella, meaning little she-goat in Latin, reveals an image documented in Genesis 22:13, And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. In this way the Hebrews ceased the practice of sacrificing the first born son, which had been dictated by the position of Orion under the bull and the head in the sackcloth of Perseus. Eventually the thicket that held the ram became the burning bush through which Moses identified the "word of God." This location became known as the second holiest place in the heavens, the mountain Horeb, as expressed in Exodus 3:1-3; Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Auriga had been acknowledged by many as the shepherd on the mountain. But changes in atmospheric conditions resulted in the less bright stars being blacked out leaving the appearance of a chariot and reins without horses. Later verses acknowledge the change in the shepherd's light with II Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. By far the most famous image of this house of the Good Shepherd was recorded in the gospels of Mark 9:4-5 and Luke 9:30-35. Here is the way the Good Shepherd's transfiguration is described by Matt 17:1-13; And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.
And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
A prior description of the opening of the clouds was portrayed in Mark 1:9-11; And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
This mountain and river and opening in the clouds is strongly associated with the spirit of the asterisms between Algol in Perseus and Capella in Auriga. There can be little doubt that the one standing in the river is Orion, the King of Egypt, whom Moses caused to be drowned in the celestial sea. From Exodus 14:21-22 and Exodus 14:27-28 comes the destiny of the Egyptians which had remained unabated until the day Pathfinder landed on Mars; And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
This section of the sky includes the intersection of the ecliptic and the Milky Way in the direction of the summer solstice. It is from here that the vernal equinox descends below into the abysmal sea. Under the Milky Way is a message of great trial and tribulations. At 19:42 UT the sun rose on Ares Vallis as if to dry the land of the ancient waters on the floodplain. Fourteen minutes later at 19:57 UT the sun crossed the meridian at JPL. Between these two events are the sun, moon, and Sirius. As the three brightest objects in the sky, they mark a new beginning. At the same moment the comet Hale-Bopp at the meridian rests in the celestial river just up stream of Orion. This very same comet triggered a ritual sacrifice of thirty nine members of the Heaven's Gate cult on the vernal equinox as it passed closest to the Earth. The difference is that JPL captured the Medusa's head without giving it a comprehending glance. Heaven's Gate followers were taken by the Medusa, for they could not separate the fire from the water. Their inspiration was swamped with their emotional outlook on life's experiences. Perseus was known as the beloved son, because he represented personal responsibility. Orion represented heroic responsibility that was concerned with the Medusa's spirit of the afterlife. By drowning the Egyptians, the Israelites attempted to overcome the emotions of subliminal consciousness by creating a new image of the passage of time through the Bull and the Ram. Heaven's Gate initiates attempted to take Orion's route through the gateway by leaving their physical "containers" and boarding a ship in the celestial sea. Their act of heroism was not understood by the advocates of rational life, but those who struggle with their emotions in the processes of being mortal fully understood what they had to say. Heaven's Gate initiates wrote an heroic message of life after death which will be greater than human. There is no essential difference in the motivations of the followers of Perseus, Moses, or Heaven's Gate. They all anticipate greener pastures on the other side of where they are.
These passages show hostility toward Egypt, and even the elimination of Egypt, just as they show hostility toward emotion and the elimination of emotions. But such hostility was shown throughout the Hebrew scriptures. God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep before creating the emotions of Eve as a help meet with feelings before they left the Kingdom of Heaven. Through this act the "I Will" of Leo gave way to the "I Feel" of Cancer. Noah fought the unclean world from an ark in Cancer to float out the flood of the "I Feel" age into "I Think" age of Gemini, where all creatures were released to repopulate the world two by two. Lot escaped from the corruption of the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, only to see his wife turned into a pillar of salt at Orion, and his daughters to lay with him on the mountain at Auriga. Because of their scriptures it is evident that the Egyptians, Hebrews, Israelites, and Jews were well aware that the divine plan was revealed in the precession of the equinoxes. They could not stop the precession. In fact they had an obligation to carry the message on to the Age of Pisces at the last celebration of the Passover Feast. They were the Chosen People, and Pisces was an offspring of the House of David.
