These star charts are those of a woman child born in Kansas City, Kansas on June 25, 1951 as the sun's disk sat upon the northeast horizon. The planet Mars rode the horns of the bull as an attendant for the sun, as Mercury was centered on the sun's light. These two attendants of the rising sun indicate that the light of rational wisdom will be on the Great Spirit's mind, as the sun begins to Come Forth by Day. Following the sun are the planet of First Father (Uranus) and a comet that will announce his rebirth when the moon winks on July 16-17, 2000.
Overhead on the zenith view we find the measure of "thirty pieces of silver," at the coin in Pisces, with Jupiter approaching the meridian. Rising from the south along the meridian is the Stork, and the Mouth of the Fish that carries the instrument of seed for Osiris, the First Father of Egypt. Directly above the fish's mouth is the spilling cup of Aquarius, indicating the compassion with which this child will be endowed. Behind Aquarius is the newborn king on the wings of an eagle at the Fountain of Youth. Beyond the cup of Aquarius on the meridian, are the wings of Pegasus, and the western edge of the Great Square. This is the trunk of the World Tree, and the asterism to which the Great Pyramids of the ancestors direct the consciousness of the wise. Beyond the Great Square, the zenith sits before the rock in the swaddling cloths of Andromeda. In Greek legends, this is the rock that Rhea fed to her husband Cronos to keep him from consuming his last child, Zeus, whom she carried to the edge of the river. In Mesoamerican legends from the Popol Vuh, this is the hand in which the gourd head of First Father, Hun Hunahpu, impregnated X'quic, whose name means Blood Woman, or Blood Moon, with the seed of the Hero Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalanque. Thus, we can still see in this birth chart the royal birth on the zenith, for the half moon and Jupiter joined together under the symbol of self sacrifice, which is Andromeda. This child will carry the vitality of the ancestors, for the top of the World Tree is on her birth meridian, with the crown of Hun Hunahpu, in the position of the gourd (Cepheus, the king). Beyond the head of the king is the head and the nose of the Little Bear (Chimalmat, Seven Macaw's wife), the head of the Camel, the tail of Draco, and the front edge of the Big Dipper (Seven Macaw), which pours the cosmic milk toward the head of the king Cepheus.
In this expanded zenith view, we see Jupiter in position above the whale and under the lower arm of Blood Moon/Woman, while the Moon occupies the center of the trunk of the World Tree, under the circlet of Pisces.
In the Nadir View of this child's natal moment, we see a message of profound value. Starting up from the south horizon we encounter the rim of the "middle earth sea." To the east is the Lake of Fire in which Orion fights the "Bull of My Mother." To the west is the Pool of Dreams, where, under the shadow of the earth, Sagittarius conjures the center of the cosmos, and First Father walks upon the land (ecliptic) and the waters (galaxy). Between these two extremes of negative and positive projections is the passage through the Bottomless Pit. In the pit lies the obelisk that fell from heaven, the pointed end holding the Ben-Ben stone of Egypt. Wound around Heaven's Obelisk is the great monster of the deep, which holds the bottom of the celestial earth at the ecliptic pole, and the bottom of the planet earth at the south celestial pole. This is the "trash heap" of creation. In all the great myths of the world this was the lowest point in all creation at the moment of the First Occasion. It is of particular interest to see that the Meridian passes east of the Southern Cross and the Place of the Skull, and the nadir is at the top sails of the Sun Boat. This child is the "wind in His sails," she is a giver of vitality to the cosmic dream. She is Blood Moon/Woman returning vitality to the sunken ship of ancestral voyages. It is she who will give birth to the Hero Twins. Above her nadir is the Crater of Mother's Affection. And at the top of her nadir meridian is the Kingdom of Heaven. This is the "attic" place where the Hero Twins of the Popol Vuh find the implements that will allow them to defeat the destroyers of the First Father and his brother.
In the expanded nadir view, we see that the meridian touches the stern of the Sun Boat. The moment we are witnessing is the moment the Egyptians defined as the "teaching of Thoth" by Maat. She is the intuition of creation which must be given to Thoth, so that he can write it down. This vitality which comes from intuition is received by riding upon the bow of the Sun Boat for half of its journey. Then, along with the Son of the Sun, Horus (Hunahpu), she flies through the mysterious body of the serpent of intuition as the dove Columba, because she had learned to Face Her Lord. Unlike Thoth, whose wisdom is hindsight, the Feather of Truth carries foresight, because it is looking through the Eye of Ra, the Eye of the Creator. Looking at the full nadir chart we see that Neptune, the ancient god of the waters, was in the bosom of the Virgin Mother. And time, Saturn, was on her mind. She is thinking about Love and Light. But, not the temporary compassion of a Good Samaritan, like Aquarius, but of the eternal spirit of Love in the Kingdom of Heaven. These cognitions are represented by Pluto, the symbol of eternity, in the mouth of the Lion (Jaguar, Kingdom of Heaven) and Venus, the symbol of cosmic love, aligning at the end and beginning of the circuit of the heavens, which starts in Cancer, and proceeds through Pisces back to Virgo and the lion. This message of the Feather of Maat is simple to comprehend. "Seek ye first, the Kingdom of Heaven, and all else shall follow." That is why Maat sits in the bow of the Sun Boat facing the master of the Cosmic Barque.
Looking at the location of the Sun, we see that this child's sun is Gemini born. Mars, Mercury, and Uranus, the three male aspects of the Solar system which speak of rationality, wisdom, and history, act as attendants to the rising sun. This location rises six hours after the moon. But, we must recognize that time does not move with the planets, for the Age of Aquarius, which is being announced in this natal scenery, follows Pisces. Thus, the distance in the cosmic cycle from the birth meridian to the meridian of the sun is precisely three quarters of the circuit of the heavens. Remember the introduction about Blood Moon/Woman giving birth to the Hero Twins after the head of First Father in the gourd tree inseminated his seed in her hand? Well, here is where the Twins carry the rising sun, precisely nine months in cosmic time after the head of the king was found upon the natal zenith meridian. The Twins are helped by Jupiter ruling in the House of the Current Age (Pisces), the Moon anchoring the World Tree under the Great Square (four corners of the earth), Saturn and Neptune attending to the Virgin Mother, Pluto and Venus marking cognition of eternal love at the mouth of the Lion, and all the rest of the wandering stars in attendance of the rising sun. This child was born "TO SEE" the rising sun. In her heart, she has always known that the Great Spirit has held a place for her in the Sun Boat. Now, her eyes can behold the effect of the Vernal Sun having stopped for a Full Day, on its journey to the place where it rises just before the natal moon. From this day forward, she will know that she was not born with her SUN in Cancer, the house of sensitivity and feelings, she was born with her SON (consciousness of light) attended by Gemini, in the House of Cosmic Cognition. Of course, she knew that, didn't she?
In looking up or down in the heavens, it is important to respect the souls of the departed, as well as the souls of those yet to come. These souls come and go along the road of the Native Americans, in fact the road of all Native Peoples. This is the road called the Milky Way. Clearly, if it is a Milky Way, it is the way of the Cosmic Mother. When we look up from the earth, we are seeing what we want to see. This is the direction of our goals and aspirations. When we look the opposite direction of up, we are not looking down upon ourselves, we are looking in the direction seen by the eyes in heaven above. Thus, the nadir tells us what the aspirations of heaven are for us. In the natal zenith location we found the Great Square, and the hand which carried the seed of the ancestors. That is this child's dream, to carry the mystery of the beloved ancestors to the next generation. In the natal nadir location we saw the top sails of the Sun Boat. Here we see the aspirations of the souls in heaven above for this child at her moment of coming to earth. They wish for her to be the wind in His sails, the vital force that guarantees the vessel of the Sun will continue on its course. When we looked heavenward to the Sun, we saw the natal sun sign in the House of the Hero Twins. These twins are emotion and rationality that unite to give rebirth to ideals and reason (Hun Hunahpu and Seven Hunahpu, Nut and Geb). But, what does the Sun see when it looks toward the location of the Earth, and beyond?
Now we see the whole story of this child all at once. Look at the stork, and realize that there is more to the idea that the stork brings all new borns than one would first expect. The stork is heading toward the Pool of Dreams, which is fed by the Fountain of Youth. The tail of the helmsman from the Sun Boat belongs to a Peacock, the prima donna called Thoth. But, he does not carry the new borns, he just tells their story, as if his knowledge were some great self born truth. In the midst of the Pool of Dreams stands the Archer Sagittarius. His arrow is aimed at the center of the galaxy. It is from this place that all the Native Cultures recognized the Opening of the Ways. Look closely, and you will realize that Mother Earth has just passed the Cosmic Womb, on its journey from First Father (Ophiuchus, Hunahpu, Shu, Zeus, etc.) to be before the eyes of Sagittarius. For, you see the name of Sagittarius is "I See." Here is where Moses stood when he looked over yonder to see the Promised Land, for before the eyes of Sagittarius is the Earth and the Cosmic Womb, from which we all came. Here is where our natal child must stand to realize she was born of a Gemini Sun, with Sagittarius as her sign of the polar opposite of the sun. She is not a child of Cancer and Capricorn, because the Vernal Sun had stopped for a full day. The astrologers failed to look toward the heveans, because their wisdom had come from the books of Thoth. Tis better to read the books which Maat read to Thoth, for these are the books before the Eyes of Ra.
Well Toto, it looks like we are not in Kansas any more. We have journeyed to the Corn Fields in the Sky. There we found the Earth and all her companions in attendance for the Birth of the Sun. And this was all a dream in the mind of that Great Dreamer when he first let the natal child to choose the breath of life. She was born with the cup of Aquarius on her zenith meridian, and the strong hind quarters of Leo on her nadir meridian. She perceives her self in a Good Samaritan's mold, while the souls from heaven see her as the power behind the Kingdom of Heaven. It is this hidden power that has been her strength, though she probabaly never turned to see what was in the eyes of heaven's souls, before. Her sun was rising in Gemini, and the shadow of the Earth was in the "Bow in the Clouds" at Sagittarius. The zenith on her solar meridian was on the mountain of the Good Shepherd. And the nadir of her solar meridian was on the Southern Crown under the Bow in the Clouds.
Has anyone ever worn the crown of her solar nadir before? Has anyone before her plucked the bow of Sagittarius resting upon her solar nadir meridian? Has anyone ever ridden in her chariot over the mountain of the Asiatics on her solar zenith before? Was there an ancestor of our natal child who could have spit in the hand of Blood Moon/Woman and given her the pedigree she feels within her soul? The answer, not surprisingly, is yes. A young king was drawn with those very aspects. He wore a Blue War Crown on his head and plucked the bow and rode the chariot up the mountain side. The combined asterisms belongs to none other than the most famous of all kings of the ancients. It was during his reign that the legends of the ancients was restored after a period of heresy, and disrespect for the sources of the soul. No king has held his Ka together in so complete a manner as this one child king. He wore a serpent and a vulture on his diadem, because he truly united the Two Lands. His name was Tutankhamun, and here is the picture drawn of this natal child's view of above and below, signifying that he was indeed the Sun of the Sun.
This image is taken from one side of a painted box which Howard Carter found in King Tut's tomb. On the opposite side Tut rides his chariot carrying his bow and wearing his crown as he ascends a mountain of Nubians. Asiatics were people of the upper heavens, while Nubians were peoples of the lower heavens. In their cultures, the Asiatics were Zionists who sought to be Kings of the Mountain of Heaven. Nubians were Africans who sought to swim in the rivers of life where the fertile bottom land was black with wealth. The Egyptians chose the middle ground, for the Milky Way is where the Two Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt are united. In the Mesoamerican legends, the Milky Way was the Way of the Dead. All people who do not comprehend this Cosmic Mother are dead, or stillborn virgins. But, people who have experienced the heights of the Cosmic Mountain and the depths of the Cosmic Sea are the living souls who can ride the Chariot of the Gods, or the Wings of the Eagle and travel the complete circuit of the heavens. Even to this very day, the Asiatics strive for rational ideals in the air of mental experience, and the Africans strive for heartfelt emotions in the waters of emotional experience. That is the victory of the Egyptians, and the Hero Twins, and Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, these peoples of the Native Lands joined heaven and earth in a dance of the eternal Cosmic Spirits.
On the top of the box, Tut is shown in two similar scenes. In one His Majesty is taking antelopes, gazelles, hyenas, wild donkeys, and ostriches. These represent the common victories of life. In the adjacent scene His Majesty, still wearing the Blue Crown of victory, takes powerful lions and lionesses with his bow and arrow, while the two horse of Gemini pull his Chariot of Fire through the greatest successes in life. All of these scenes represent the Happy Hunting grounds, which His Majesty had the good fortune to experience. His journey within the Happy Hunting grounds is the eternal example of the King of Kings. Yet is is an example which requires mastery of the underworld. Each vision on the chest is surrounded by a circuit of squares, symbolizing the World Tree which holds the Great Square in the heavens under the head of the King of Kings, Cepheus. Within the circuit of squares is a circuit of flowers, representing the Elysian Fields in the highest heavens (Coma Berenices, Bethlehem). Within the circuit of flowers is a circuit scales from a serpent's body. This is the Great Serpent at the bottom of the heavens, out of whose body the Sun Boat journeys along the Milky Way.
This chest is probably the most famous "Hope Chest" ever created. It has outlasted the vitality of the physical body of King Tut by more than 3300 years. Hope is eternal. In this Hope Chest, the priests of Egypt prepared a place where all of the descendants of Egyptian kings could place their dreams and prize possession. What tells us it is a Hope Chest? Sure, the scenes of conquest imply the rising of victory over trauma, which is the spirit of hope. But, the Priests left no room for doubt, because they put the symbol of heaven between the scenes of victory and the Circuit of the Serpent. This message has been handed down through the writings of Seth, in the Book of Job 41, with the story of the Leviathan and the words, "Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine."
Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?
Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?
Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?
Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
Behold, the HOPE of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
Who can discover the face of his garment? Or who can come to him with his double bridle?
Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.
His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.
One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.
Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.
His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.
His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.
When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.
The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.
The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.
Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.
Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.
He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.
Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.
Hope is the fundamental ingredient we must hold on to when we enter the mouth of the Leviathan. But, hope is the result of encountering the Leviathans of life without the vision of creation. Maat sits in the Bow of the Sun Boat, with full awareness that the Creator has no intention of sinking the ship upon the rocks. She sees that the Creator desires creation to be an action of Common Sense. When the Leviathan appears as a serpent along the Circuit of the Heavens, then it is time to use intuition, and to avoid the reaction of Seth to withdraw. Seth sees the tomb over the head of the Leviathan, and Jonah's Whale diving in the Cosmic Sea.. His rational experience says that to go into the mouth of the Leviathan represents the end of time. But, all rational consciousness sees only the light of day, it cannot comprehend that which does not appear to the rationally conscious mind. Horus shows no recalcitrance to enter into the serpent's lair. Horus has a goal, which is shown as the nesting materials in his mouth. Horus sees the future, because Horus is accompanied by the Maat. Seth sees the past, and desires that the trial of Jonah and the tribulation of Job not be risen from the dead. Because the rational mind sees only what it recognizes, it runs from its phobias. So, look closely and find the location of First Father next to the Phoenix, that is proceeded by the Stork and the Fish with the ancient Star of Hope in its mouth (Oxyrhynchus, Ichthus). Aquarius is pouring the "life giving waters" on the man beside the road of the sun, occupied by Jupiter and the Moon. These two wandering ones are defining the resurrection of a Once and Future King. At the very tail of the Leviathan is the Peacock, Thoth. He stands at the altar (Ara) where the flag of the Great Neter (God, Ra, Great Spirit) separates the Physical Beast (Anubis, Upuaut) from the altar of the holocaust of physical wisdom. Upuaut was known as the "Opener of the Ways." He stands as the wolf, Lupus, fighting the Greek Centaur, and the Egyptian Donkey Man. This is the spirit of pride which is lost in the humbling journey through the Leviathan, who is a king over all the children of pride. Once the journey around the lowest circuit of the heavens has passed the pride of the Donkey Man, Heaven's Obelisk can be replaced as a pillar of creation, the Crux and the Place of the Skull can be transcended. Then the wandering ones catch up to the stern of the Sun Boat, where the belong. Such is the journey of life. We seldom can step to the back of the boat, before we have been knocked down a few times. Then the humility of temporary defeat teaches us that Maat does not need to defend her vision. The need to defend one's vision comes only when the vision is untruth. Truth needs no defense. Truth stand by itself for eternity. It is the Light which Love brings. This is the purpose of King Tut's Hope Chest made from carved and painted wood inlaid with precisious stones. This the purpose of the Creator's Hope Chest made from burning balls of cosmic gas inlaid with precious stars.
The Hope Chest of King Tut, is a symbol of the Hope Chest which is our Cosmic Home. All the action of Creation has one fundamental objective with regard to our Cosmic Home. This objective is the Hope that the Living will come to a Common Sense understanding that there is "No Place Like Home."
It is not uncommon for Native People to have traditions which take them to happy hunting grounds. It is not uncommon for a simple reason. It is the vision of Maat; the message in the Feather of Truth. It is reality. This is the voice of Thoth. For, he is just the product of writings and pictures. But, there is a place where all of these events occur in the heart as well as the mind. It is a place where souls look toward the Earth with the dream of Coming Forth by Day, like the rising of the sun. The desire to be a light, and to bask in the glow of that eternal expression which the heavens pass through the heart of Maat. It is the desire to be born in the thought of Thoth, as the returning dream of the living King of Kings. That is the message written in that place where the natal child was born. It was her destiny from conception, and the story in her natal stars, to be a messenger of Love and Light, for she was born with the head of a king on the top of her Tree of Life. She "knows" that Heaven's Obelisk can be returned to the Happy Hunting Grounds. She is the Feather that sits Up on the Bow of the Sun Boat. On July 16-17, 2000, the spirit of her message was written across the heavens. Using the path of a Comet, and the Heavenly Hosts between Pisces and the Virgin Mother, the Great Spirit told all with the Eye of Ra, that the senses speak of truth. And truth lets the Sun Boat be about its journey. So, Natal Child, instruct us as we begin again to let the Sun get on its way, as you become again who you were always intended to be. You are the Voice in the writings of Thoth. You are the mistress of Common Sense.
