This is the lunar eclipse location. Note the sequence from the south meridian to the north meridian. Argo Navis is bow down. Volans, the flying fish is rising off the stern. Heaven's obelisk, which has fallen at the place of the Skull and the Crux, and the tail of Apophis lay across the path of Volans. The Peacock, or Ibis of Thoth, is on the other side of these barriers to the upper world, which require the miracle of reincarnation to cross. Once the miracle is achieved, the edge of the Pool of Dreams (Siloam) is crossed to the skirt of the archer, Sagittarius. At the feet of Sagittarius is the victorious war crown of Ancient Egypt. The Earth and the Moon are on the northern shore of the Pool of Siloam. The feet of the child Antinous on the eagle's wings of Aquila straddle the meridian to the north, with the shaft of the flail directly on the line from below to above. The ascension of the gnosis (Sagittarius) by divine assimilation (Antinous) is the path of the gods. The flail in the hand of the reborn king is the symbol of victory over physical tribulations. There, above the shaft of the Flail, the ancient Inca question arises, "Why is the Fox's Tail Black? The answer is shown at the north horizon in the most upward constellation of the meridian, as a Swan Song flying to the Lyra crosses to the Land Above the Land, where milk and honey flow. The answer to the following riddle, which was posed by the mortal in Sydney who asked for this interpretation, is on the meridian at Sydney during the eclipse. "If seth rules Capricorn, (Though I am aware of the Lepus connection.) how does cosmic stellar cognition coordinate, if at all with the solar [astrological cognition]." Listen to the celestial words of light, and you will hear, "Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." In other words, the birth of cognition is the meaning of the blinking of a solar reflection off the Moon. A wink from the Eye of Osiris, which is reflection on creation, tells us that we are still under the benevolent rays of the Sun.
Capricorn is bounded by Uranus and Neptune, the lords of the underworld and the bottom of the sea. These gods carry the message "I Use" the Land Under the Land, and the Sea around it to regenerate lost souls. Look to the west, and find Pluto, the symbol of eternity to the right side of the Father, as viewed from the Earth, where the unbalanced desire of the Great Red Dragon was sliced into Libra and Scorpio, for a more balanced desire to give to the spirit of the beloved son. Cognition of the Cosmic Will is he of whom it was said, "This is My Son in Whom I Am Well Pleased." This Heavenly Father's message to accept the cognition of spirit while balancing immortal will with mortal desire was stated in Rev 12:4-5, "And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." The throne of consciousness is mounted by cognition of being, and retained by balancing desire.
As the Earth and the Moon leave the Pool of Siloam, a child in swaddling cloths rises above the celestial earth, to be with the Father, in the Swan Song of the Eternal Return. This is the way of miracles, through the Gateway of the Gods.
Meanwhile, on the solar side, we see that the androgynous couple carry the light of day. There, with the Sun at her right hand walking hand in hand with her brother, she holds Mars, the rational son in her bosom, while Mercury is the wings at her feet, and Cancer carries Venus as a union of loving feelings. These four wandering stars had passed the Bull of My Mother when a grand conjunction, which included the moon, took place in Aries, the namesake of the "I AM," leaving Jupiter (king) and Saturn (time) to straddle the Seven Sisters, signifying a royal conception. The bow of Argo Navis breaks beyond the southern horizon, with the Feather of Truth aboard. Procyon in the Little Dog, which is the house of Nephthys and the star of this housewife of Osiris, anchors the meridian under the Sun. She says, listen to the senses. The meridian splits the heads of Castor and Pollux, as the head of the male son sits at the nadir. Above the son of great pleasure, the Lynx, the Camel, and the Little Bear carry the meridian through the feet of Tauret.
The meaning of this journey is shown where the head of the King of Kings sits to the east of the northern horizon meridian as the destination of the Prince, Perseus, who rises above the conception at the Pleiades, attended by Jupiter and Saturn, with the multiheaded serpent and the heart of the Medusa in his sackcloth. Thus fulfilling the prophecy of the Grand Conjunction of May 3-5, 2000, regarding the rebirth of an immortal king. This is the return of Osiris to the highest heavens, where he, born again, becomes once more, the Father in the Kingdom of Heaven. His rebirth is a cognition, a recognition, and a reincarnation within all persons with eyes that can see, ears that can hear, and the common sense to distinguish the twins of vital emotion and esoteric reason. So, we see in the true positions of the stars during the lunar eclipse at Sydney the fundamental statement of life. Everything rests upon what a man thinks. Or, Think and Grow Rich. Or, as Thomas Watson Sr. said for nearly a century in the halls of IBM,
That is all that can be read in any prognostication. THINK! Whatever will come will be totally dependent upon the meaning for which these five little letters are a metaphor. The power of this enlightenment is given freely, but many prefer the darkness which comes without thought. Though we be born of a virgin body, we can master the flails of all creation, if we just think about what we feel and sense, first, and then let the thought inspire actions in reality. As the moon is eclipsed, the female twin holds the great light of the Sun in her hand, but it is his thought that turns the solar light into Day. Cognition is the single event which makes the difference between spiritual life and spiritual death.
When a thought turns into inspiration, we can ride with Elijah on a Chariot of Fire. If we follow Orion , and lose our heads, rather than follow Auriga and accept our calling, we must pass through the serpent in the Underworld, and climb back up the World Tree, again. The choice is ours, but the thought and the process of cognition belongs to eternity. The way to become the well pleasing son, is to listen on one side of our minds to the essence of earth, water, and air, and on the other side to listen to father, mother, and son. This is the sacred secret of the Seven Sisters. Together they count the seven spirits of God. Their message is that we are the woman that fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three score days. These days carry the sacred number which is equal to three and one half circuits of the heavens (360*3.5 = 1260).
The masters were telling us that we should seek the Kingdom of Heaven, whether by Chariots of Fire or Burning Bushes, the goal in life is to be in the midst of fire. The fire is the inspiration which comes with an enthusiastic heart that prepares a place for the woman who was cast into the wilderness. She is just the spirit of disenchantment which comes along the celestial road carrying the disappointments and the pains in a life striving for perfection. Fearfulness empowers compassionate love and is quenched as it sinks in the Lake of Fire with Orion. There it is restrained by the bondage of Andromeda to material existence, and regenerates the consumptive gnosis of Sagittarius striving for total cosmic awareness. These disenchanting forces are no match for the fire of truth which is freely given to all who will enthusiastically seek to LOVE and to THINK, as one guiding light. For it is not the pursuit of dreams that disenchants, it is the failure to THINK while in the pursuit, and the failure to transcend gnosis through reincarnation of the Cosmic Spirit. The cosmic purpose is to love, and the journey toward that purpose rises from a lake of fire, on a chariot, in the sack cloth of Perseus, on the branches of a tree, or wrapped in the swaddling cloths of a new born king. When Hagar first fled into the wilderness, the Cosmic Voice was still heard in the midst of the fire within the mountain of Allah. Through Ishmael, Mother Nature spoke the truth through the mountain of flames wherein are the Fables of the Ancients. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. Then after Isaac was born to Sarah and Abraham, Hagar again was sent into the wilderness. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt. It is in this manner that two sons of Abraham became fathers to the land below, and the land above. Hagar, as Andromeda, restored the material cosmos through Ishmael in the land below. Sarah, as Virgo, restored the spiritual cosmos through Isaac in the land above. These sacred lands were the same regions of the circuit of the heavens which all cultures have known as the Land Flowing with Milk and Honey, and the Land of Fire. As it is above, so it is below. The land in between is that cosmic circuit we see as the Milky Way, and those with loving thoughts know to be heaven.
There was a grand conjunction of the ancient wandering stars that occurred in early May 2000. The conjunction occurred between the Pleiades (Seven Sisters) and the east line of Pisces. A few days after the lunar eclipse at midnight on July 16-17, 2000 in Sydney, Australia, the report of a visible comet was broadcast to the world. These three events--grand conjunction, lunar eclipse, comet sighting---are tied together in a prophecy analyzed in "The Star of Bethlehem" by Michael Molnar. The coin collecting astronomer saw the conjunction of April 17, 6 BC, a year when Jupiter was occulted by the Moon twice in Aries. It was Molnar's contention that the astrologers of the time would have seen this movement of Jupiter through Aries and concluded that the time for the birth of an immortal king had arrived. Thus, to his way of thinking, the Star of Bethlehem was an astrologer's prophetic star. Molnar's conjectures are well supported, and his logic regarding the importance of astrology to the people at the end of the Hellenistic age is without question the correct observation. However, he may have oversimplified the observation in his desire to comprehend the meaning of the text of Matt 2:1-2.
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
Molnar has this to say regarding his research into the Star of Bethlehem. Superposed on the photograph of the coin is what I found: Jupiter underwent two occultations ("eclipses") by the Moon in Aries in 6 BC. Jupiter was the regal "star" that conferred kingships - a power that was amplified when Jupiter was in close conjunctions with the Moon. The second occultation on April 17 coincided precisely when Jupiter was "in the east," a condition mentioned twice in the biblical account about the Star of Bethlehem. In August of that year Jupiter became stationary and then "went before" through Aries where it became stationary again on December 19, 6 BC. This is when the regal planet "stood over." - a secondary royal portent also described in the Bible. In particular, there is confirmation from a Roman astrologer that the conditions of April 17, 6 BC were believed to herald the birth of a divine, immortal, and omnipotent person born under the sign of the Jews, which we now know was Aries the Ram. Furthermore, the coins of Antioch and ancient astrological documents show that there was indeed a Star of Bethlehem as reported in the biblical account of Matthew.
But, lets take a close look at what the Astrologers of 6 BC would have seen in the following view of the ancient heavens.
This chart illustrates Molnar's moment of the second "occultation" of Jupiter by the Moon on April 17, 6 BC. The inset shows the paths of Saturn and Jupiter throughout the year 6 BC. Note that Jupiter does not go into retrograde under the asterism of Aries. It goes into retrograde between the Pleiades and Aries under Perseus. Although this disagrees with Molnar's coin, this is possibly more profound, for the kingdom on earth at the time was under Roman rule, and the dominant religion of Rome was that of Mithras.
The Mithrasians always presented the zodiac with Aries on top. Vini vidi vici, I came, I saw, I conquered.. Aries was the house of all people who lived between approximately 1800 BC and 1 AD. But, the way Molnar uses the coin to identify the Jews, reveals something about the myth of the Israelites. Since Aries represents the lost sheep from heaven above, all people who follow the signs of the times are Israelites, whether Egyptian, Persian, Greek, or Roman heritage. Israel is the Land Flowing with Milk and Honey. It is everything above the galactic plane.
Out of the Orphic Egg comes Mithras carrying a lightening bolt in his right hand, a staff in his left, and a Gorgon Lion head on his chest. Flames emerge from each half of the cosmic egg signifying the spiritual aspect of Mithras. Behind his head are the rays of the radiant sun, Sol Invictus. He is wrapped in the serpent from the underworld which emerges from behind the top of the cosmic egg, and is a symbol for unconsciousness within the tree of life. He stands on one half of the cosmic egg shell and wears the other half as a crown.
In the Mithrasian religion, the god Mithras was shown conquering the bull at the moment he sees the Face of God. This is a clear metaphor which says that heaven can be gained when the man (Mars) overcomes untruth (bull) of his emotions (Pleiades). Since Mithras is the Son of the Creator, he is the prodigal son returning to heaven above. The salvation mystery of Mithras is the same salvation mystery of all cultures of the Age of Aries.
In both of the grand conjunctions shown above, Mars is at the Pleiades. These are the seven sisters. Note Molnar's star on the coin from Antioch. It has seven points and a stem. This is a symbol of the Pleiades, and it is the hieroglyph for Seshat, the goddess of wisdom in Ancient Egypt. It is also a seven petaled flower, which was the lotus symbol for the top of heaven. The earliest record of the seven petaled flower was provided by the founder of the Egyptian dynasties, Narmer; circa 3100 BC. In Narmer's palette, we see a "Scorpion King" with a plow in his hands and a subject placing a mat at his feet. The Scorpion King palette illustrates the top of the heavens, and the arrival of man in the Elysian Fields, which became the "Potter's Field by virtue of the location of the Great Potter's, Ptah and Khnum, at the bottom of the galactic axis. So, when we see a representation of a Ram looking back over its shoulder we are being reminded that the spirit of Aries is "I Am." The spirit of "I Am" is not cognition, but recognition. It is by recognition of the return path to the highest heavens that peoples of the Upper World are lost sheep who have been found, again. These people are Zionists, regardless of their particular dogmatic persuasion. Almost all the Zionists were lost during the Roman Empire days, when the Mithrasian armies conquered all the lands for their final empire. When the emperors of Rome had completed their conquests, their economic system, which required expansion in order to sustain its abuses, collapsed like a modern pyramid scheme. The last of the Zionists to survive were the Jews, because their traditions were the roots of the pacifists' traditions that grew from the merging of Egyptian, Persian, Greek, Hebrew, Hellenistic, and Mithrasian cultures into the New King of Kings in the catholic (universal) Christian version of the Cosmic Creator. Hidden within the new King of Kings is the story of Osiris, and Isis, and their son Horus. What is not hidden is the solar nature of the new dogma. For, the most profound tradition of the Christian religion is the raising up of the rayed sun disk of Sol Invictus on Easter Morning. In the completion of the Easter experience, a Christian is enlightened to the workings of the creation. Unlike Mithras, this light in the face comes through humble passive acceptance, as well as, personal responsibility. It is an androgynous deification of Sol Invictus.
In the genesis of the Coptic Christian dogma, which was the first Christian dogma, Seshat was Sophia, and was transformed into the Holy Spirit. Thus, the Star of Bethlehem is also the star of Seshat. This is can be confirmed on the Denderah zodiac.
On the Denderah zodiac, which was on the ceiling of the Osiris Chapel in an upper room of the Temple to Hathor, we find Aries standing between Thoth and Seshat. This is a profound statement regarding the importance of maintaining humility in the presence of a dominating self awareness. Thoth is rational cosmic wisdom, while Seshat, his active wife, is vital cosmic wisdom. She is a metaphor for the immortal essence of the power of conception. Without this essence, there can be no creativity. It is through the humble application of this essence that all kingdoms are conceived. This is the meaning of Capricorn, which is a union of the metaphysical elements of air (goat) and water (fish). On the Denderah zodiac, Aries is shown looking back over a shoulder (see below). This is a message telling us that Aries represents recognition, as opposed to cognition.
But,we must remain aware of the "Signs of the Times." In 6 BC, all people would have been awaiting the arrival of the Age of Pisces, just like modern people anticipate the arrival of the Age of Aquarius. The retrograde path of Saturn at the east fish line of Pisces occurred at the location of the vernal equinox of 6 BC. This "sign of the season" (equinox) coincided with Cronos (Saturn), the ancient of days and measure of time, while Jupiter (dominion) was retrograding from the Pleiades (conception) toward the eternal 1st of Aries. Thus, the king planet was conceiving a new "I Am" and a new 1st of Aries. This should have marked the 1st of Pisces, however, the rulers on earth did not like the view into the coming Valley of Death and Resurrection, so they stayed with the vernal equinox as the 1st of Aries, which became the eternal name marking the vernal equinox. The Denderah zodiac, like its replacements, the Gospels and Book of Revelation, is a composition of incredible wisdom which foretells the coming of the ages. It is the "real" Rock of Ages for all of Western Culture. The history of Western Civilization prior to the Age of Pisces is recorded on the stone. The prophecy of Western Civilization after the Age of Aries is also recorded on the stone. The stone was dedicated to the salvation of Egypt by Alexander the Great, who was declared to be the Son of Amun by the oracle at Siwah when Alexander crossed the desert to pay homage to the gods of Egypt. But, Joshua 10:11-13 tells us that the vernal sun was to stop its westerly movement before it left Aries, and the ages would cease to pass over.
And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth-horon, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. Since the vernal sun, the Sign of the Times, left the asterism of Aries, all Roman astrologers and spiritual soothsayers who read the stars have counted the first day of spring as the 1st of Aries. A whole day would represent one twelfth of the cycle of the zodiac, or 2160 years in the astrological reckoning of the zodiac houses. We have gone about a whole day since the sun was stopped for Joshua. The work of retrieving the lost sheep of Israel has been completed, and now it is time to prepare for the Mother's favorite son, Aquarius. We have passed through the Valley of Death, and it is the announcement of springtime in Aquarius that is written by the wandering stars as they encounter the 1st of Aries.
According to the Denderah zodiac presentation of the heavens, the end of the Age of Taurus saw the end of the Age of the Goddesses as they were forced into obeisance to the "stiff necked ram." The location of the seven stars between the crownless mother and the stiff necked ram at the entrance to Aries is a clear correspondence to the Pleiades. Thus, the seven feminine spirits of creation (Seven Sisters) were forced to stand down as civilization established the rule of law. As the Age of Aries begins on the Denderah, we see the "wise men" standing where the child sits on the Cosmic Lotus with the altar of four serpents at his back. In words, this means the children of Aries turned their back on the emotions and the physical aspects which are subliminal and feminine representations of the metaphysical elements, earth, water, air, and fire. This stage of maturation is the adolescent condition of sophomores and tyrants. The beginning of the Age of Pisces shows that the Age of Aries established a tyrant on the throne. The image of the tyrant is broad shoulders and no head or arms, meaning might but no intelligence or creativity. That was the legacy which Rome filled perfectly. Might was right! During the Age of Pisces, civilization established the "laws of creation" as four rams on an altar of enlightenment. The youth carrying the stone with writing upon it has the skull cap of Ptah, and the hieroglyphs of "star light." Thus, these stones carry the "Word of God." As we move into the Age of Aquarius, the Denderah zodiac portrays a "proud" ram walking tall with the swan of satisfaction before it, and eight kings bound in a circle which is tangent to the circle of the composition. This is a symbol for habituality that is satisfying to the Great Shepherd. But, we must remember that the 18th Dynasty of Egypt was founded early in the Age of Aries when the people in southern Egypt drove the Hyksos out of the Nile valley in the north, as they reunited Upper and Lower Egypt for a third time. The Hyksos had a shepherd worshiping cult. So we see, that the Ptolemaic Egyptians of the Hellenistic period at the end of the Age of Aries appreciated the ideas, "what goes around comes around," "and as above, so below."
However, all is not dogmatic under the auspices of Aquarius, for the planet Venus is shown in exaltation at the transition between Pisces and Aquarius. Thus, the "star light" will include the "love and light" aspects of creation. This is the ultimate meaning of the Good Samaritan, Aquarius. After the Age of Aquarius has completed, the civilization which was documented in the Word of God in Aries will be humbled as the goat which carries the burden of the injured man by the side of the road. If the last century is any indication, the changes that will occur in human intelligence and creativity will be astounding beyond recognition, even by today's standards. The coming of the King of Kings which was indicated by the Star of Bethlehem when the vernal sun was in Aries was seen in the east, as the precession of the equinoxes moved to the west. The Denderah zodiac shows three and one half circuits of the heavens are taken from the center to where the adepts stand at the child on the lotus. These three and a half cycles put the adepts at the gateway to the top of the worlds an the circle of fire, where enthusiasm drives the Cosmic Will.
Now, note the position of Jupiter in the Denderah zodiac, as labeled in the Seshat fragment above . The icon for Jupiter is directly aligned with the star on the head of Hathor. This star serves three metaphors. First, and foremost, it is the star on the wand of Seshat. This is the symbol of vital power given through the wisdom of creation, for she is the Fairy Godmother of Egypt, the Queen of Sheba of Solomon, and the Holy Spirit of Christianity. On the Denderah monument, the shaft of the wand projects from the head of the Humble Shepherd , a symbol of Aries, across the composition, to the star in the horns of Hathor. This is the hieroglyph shown on the wall of the Temple to Horus at Edfou. The important point being represented is that Cosmic Consciousness (Horus) follows the goddess of conception (Seshat). The Book of Revelation joins Horus and Aries in Rev 5:4-6. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
The second symbol is geodetic. On the zodiac, there is a small arrow at the upper end of the "wand." The arrow points to the north pole. Thus the star on Hathor's head is the North Star, and Hathor is Mother Earth. Hathor represents the nurturing essence of our planet, and the material universe. The wand of Seshat, or the magic of conception, is given to the Humble Shepherd. This is the positive non-tyrannical aspect of Aries, and all the children of Aries who survived when the Angel of Death passed over Egypt. As Exodus says, only those houses with Ram's blood are passed over. Those houses of the First Born of Egypt are of Taurus, and the end of Taurus had been passed into Aries, at the Pleiades, Seven Sisters, star of Seshat in the horns of the Bull of My Mother. As shown on the Narmer pallet, the seven petaled flower is a very ancient representation of Heaven, and certainly the heavens.
The third symbol is celestial. It represents the star Sirius. Sirius is the brightest star in the heavens, and it has a sidereal period of 365.2500 days. The leap year calendars of the ancient world were synchronized to the heliacal rising of Sirius. It is also the star of Isis, the human mother symbol of Egypt. Julius Caesar has been given credit for the leap year calendar of Rome, but he learned the technology from his visits to Egypt, and undoubtedly from a trip to the Temple to Hathor at Denderah, with Cleopatra.
Standing on this star is the planet Jupiter. This is the "true" star of Bethlehem. It reveals a very profound meaning. First, we have to know that Bethlehem means "house of bread." This is first of all a constellation in the heavens, and secondly a city which represents the "Uniting of the Two Lands" in Canaan, after the destruction of Egypt. Celestially it is the "ear of corn" (our wheat) in the hand of Virgo, the heavenly mother of the Solar System. The constellation holds the north, or upper, polar axis of the galactic plane as seen from the Solar System.
To understand the profundity of the Star of Bethlehem metaphors, we have to realize this fourth hidden meaning in the wand of Seshat. Imagine that you are on an interstellar spaceship wandering throughout the heavens within the greater confines of the Milky Way. You are looking for a particular place which contains our star, the Sun. How would you know when you approach a star, whether it is the Sun, or Sirius, or Procyon, or Aldebaron, or any other star in the galaxy? The answer is simple. The Sun is the unique star which has the symbol of bread above it relative to the whole plane of the galaxy. In other words, the Sun is the star in Bethlehem. Only one "real" star can be the "real" Star of Bethlehem. It has to be the star in the galaxy which is under, or in, the House of Bread, ergo the Star of Bethlehem is Sol.
When you find Bethlehem, you have found the star where biological life has come from within the galactic heavens to live upon a planet called Earth. In other words, this is the process by which life came to be conceived on our planet. It is a "Diaspora" from the Milky Way. This is profound beyond conception, and yet, it is the essence of all conception on our planet. This "biosphere" is the "Third Rock from the Sun." Only, our ancestors who supported the image of the Star of Bethlehem believed that it was more than a rock. To them, it was a Living Goddess empowered by the great light of the Star of Bethlehem, our sun, to give the rewards of virgin birth through material and spiritual conception. As it turns out, two thousand years after the first recording of the Star of Bethlehem story and the journey of the Virgin Mother to give birth to the Son of God, we have learned that the whole Milky Way galaxy was born in a region of the universe called the Virgo cluster. Thus, Molnar is shown to be quite accurate in his association of Jupiter with dominion over the earth, for Jupiter sits on the Star of Bethlehem on the Denderah zodiac at the symbol for the north pole of Mother Earth, the symbol for sidereal time, and the symbol of cosmic conception. What more could be asked of a symbol, or a star, with regard to the Star of Bethlehem? It is the source of everything we can ever know, or hope to experience. It is also three words that remind the Humble Shepherd of the great expanse of the Cosmos. In other words, the Star of Bethlehem reminds Lost Sheep that we were all conceived in a benevolent Cosmos which is located by the Flower of Heaven, which is a grouping of stars in the Milky Way. The Galactic Polar axis to that flower is the location of the Sun, itself. Thus, the wand and the flower identify a star. That star is our very own sun. The Star of Bethlehem stands over the child who is of the solar system. We are all together, and separately, the spiritual offspring of the Virgin Mother, and simultaneously, siblings of the Sun.
Now lets us return to the Grand Conjunction of May 5, 2000 and the lunar eclipse under the babe in "swaddling cloths lying in a manger" at Sydney, Australia at midnight July 16-17, 2000 to read the "Omen of Comet C/1999 S4 Linear."
On July 15, 2000, the comet C/1999 S4 Linear crossed the Milky Way at the "opening of the Reed Sea" and returned to the region above celestial Egypt. When the lunar eclipse occurred, the comet had risen above the cloud on its way to Bethlehem. On August 1, 2000, the comet has a place in the Elysian Fields, or the House of Bread, or Bethlehem. There, the Virgin Mother will take this wandering star of Bethlehem into her arms. After leaving the Virgin, the comet will cycle under the serpent Hydra, with the Crow, Crater, and Sextant, (Crone, Mother, Maiden on Denderah) to the place prepared of God for the woman. That place is the Feather of Truth, which is a symbol for the Maat, and truthful intuition. From the Feather of Truth, the comet return to the star Procyon in the Little Dog. This is the house of Nephthys, the goddess of human senses. This comet begins its journey to the Solar System at the place of the lady who was known as the Housewife of Osiris. The journey of the comet cycles form the House of Sensible perception, through the outreaching arm of the constellation of Orion (Osiris). It skirt the "shore"of the cosmic sea of the Milky Way on several jaunts. The second to last dip into the sea, it goes to the Pleiades as if to retrieve a conception. On its last journey, the comet of the shepherd's sensible dog goes deep into the Cosmic Sea as if to retrieve a lost sheep, Aries, and return the lost sheep to the field in the heaven's above at the House of Bread on the way back to the constellation of Virgo (Isis) and the Maat. If that is not sufficient to warrant the title, Star of Bethlehem, then the stars are just burning balls of gas, this comet carrying the message of revitalized cognition is just ice crystals blowing in a solar wind, and meaning is just folly in the mind of a rationalizing dreamer. These "facts" are not sufficient meaning to mint a coin. But, the return of the diaspora is sufficient meaning to mint a coin, and that is the proper meaning of the ram on the Antioch coin.
So, look closely at the path taken by Comet C/1999 S4 Linear and see if the heavens have "minted" a "coin of the realm," worthy of the title, "Star of Bethlehem." It leaves the Little Dog and crosses under the Reed Sea of the Milky Way and goes by the Pleiades to stand before Aries, the lost Sheep. From there the comet returns through Perseus and the break in the Milky Way to the Camel which is waiting in the heavens above. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (Matt 19:24) The comet crosses over the Good Shepherd's mountain in Auriga and near the Big Dipper, which is the full grown "Bull of My Mother" which carried the Pleiades. In this way, the Lamb with the name "I Am" is brought back to the heavens above in full glory. A wandering comet speaks the wisdom of the ages. It says the senses are where we begin the journey of life in a virgin body. If we follow that comet's example, we too will encircle the heavenly fields.
So, what does this all mean? Is it the "true Star of Bethlehem?" Is it just another rationalization of celestial events? Or, is it evidence that the ancient peoples of the world worshiped life in a fuller and far more meaningful way than their descendants of this modern world? If we accept the latter meaning, then we are the reincarnated "I Am," and by the humble acceptance of ancient communications, we can touch eternity in a more profound way than any materialistic and objective science could ever imagine. The coin and the comet both tell us to remember where we came from.
Certain facts cannot be honestly denied, even by the most hardened skeptic. These events happened in Cosmic Reality. Messages are available to those who have eyes that can see, and ears that can hear. Maybe this is all it means. Pay attention to your senses, and you will never become a lost sheep in the wilderness without a shepherd to guide you back to the Elysian Fields. The spiritual name of Capricorn is "I Use." Capricorn's message is unavoidable when it comes to the senses in a living Universe. Once we fail to use our senses, we are just refuse material collecting at the bottom of a proverbial sea, or a fallen hero struggling in a lake of fire and brimstone. By picking up our own bed and walking the circuits of the heavens with our senses and our thoughts in full view of the conscious mind, we are just like Comet C/1999 S4 Linear. THINK is the message of the heavens above, which passes through the medium of our subliminal senses. How we THINK about our sensations will determine whether we live a life that is mundane or SENSATIONAL!

This essay, "THINK, this is my son in whom I am well pleased," was developed as a result of work performed in the previous six months. That work has a profound message with regard to the Stopping of the Sun for one full day. We are about to let the sun return to its precessional way. The research work reveals the processs of the five ages of the sun, and tells us what the ancient astronomer priests were reading in the heavens. All of the present stage of the research work culminated when the comet C/1999 S4 Linear wrote the ancient message of the return of the King of Kings above the Chariot of Fire. If you would like to see how the Pyramids of Egypt and Mexico are involved in the comet's story, links are provided below to the research essays. All of this is a prelude to the writing of an essay which will summarize the meaning of Rostau, and the return of First Father. When the journey of First Father has completed its cycle, we will all have direct access to the Mind of God, so be patient. It took several billion years to mold the cosmos into its present state. The object of this essay is to present the Land After Time. We now have full access to conception. The Sacred Ancestors told us that humanity was in the process of a humble gestation. That process will end when the First Father returns to earth. The return path has to be more than spiritual, it has to be rational, physical, and material. Then all of creation will be joined in the Mind of God, for humanity will be able to utter with heart felt honesty the compassionate words of Aquarius, "I Know."
