Heaven Upside Down or Las Vegas: The Sickle (UPDATED)

 "You noticed them, and they noticed that you noticed them." 
Alexander Leek, Mothman Prophecies

OK, we have a lot to go through here but I've finally cracked the code. This post will surely be updated but I want to just lay this all out for you because literally everything I've been trying to untangle since May all comes down to one thing.

One word actually. And I'm not entirely sure it's a very reassuring word at that.

I'm going to try to bring this all back home, so bear with me.

First, let's get to the star of our show, and I mean that quite literally. This comes from Goro Adachi's Super Torch Ritual:
Regulus the heart star of the celestial sphinx (Leo) was precisely at the north-south meridian of Las Vegas at the moment the mass shooting started at 10:05 pm PDT, about 42 degrees below the horizon due north. Go back or forward two minutes and there wouldn’t have been this alignment. It was precise and existed only at the exact time the massacre commenced. 

This is no small detail here- Regulus is a very important star:
 It’s the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion, depicting the Lion’s heart. This blue-white beauty of a star is the only 1st-magnitude star to sit almost squarely on the ecliptic – Earth’s orbital plane projected onto the constellations of the Zodiac.
Note that the heart of the Sphinx is looking straight at Las Vegas Village, where the Route 91 Harvest Festival is held. And just to let you why this is such a big deal, look at the history of Regulus:
Throughout history, Regulus has been associated with royal power, and to the ancient Babylonians was known as Sharru (the King), to the Akkadians as Amil-gal-ur (King of the Celestial Sphere), and to the Persians as Miyan (the Centre), or as Venant, one of the four “royal stars” that watched over all the other stars in the form of a Fixed Cross, the others being Aldebaran, Fomalhaut, and Antares. In old India, the star was known as Magha (the Mighty), while the Greek astronomer Ptolemy used the word Basiliskos (“little king”) to describe it, which was later translated into Latin by Nicolaus Copernicus as Regulus.

UPDATE: This story first went live the day before Las Vegas.

Twin Sphinx, Twin Star, Twin date-10/01

And twin rainbow over Las Vegas, the day of the Eclipse. 

Then this...

Twin stars. Destroyers. Kronos. Saturn. 10/13.

Researchers from Princeton University in the US confirmed that the widely separated pair about 350 light years from Earth are in fact a binary pair.

Princeton. Huh.

Rēgulus is Latin for 'prince' or 'little king’.


Bear in mind the heavenly bodies are very important to all this, largely because of the Great American Eclipse. Which seems to have down what eclipses have commonly done throughout history and that is to presage disaster. The Eclipse bisected the continental United States roughly in half and the southern half has had quite a bit of trouble ever since.

And throughout it all, only one star was visible- The Heart of the Lion.

Soon after the eclipse we saw more signs in the heavens- a major lunar occultation, involving three planets and a bright star. That star?


Apparently this isn't all that rare, because it's about to happen again on Sunday. But Regulus is very rarely occulted by a planet. 

The last time it happened was - wait for it- 58 years ago:
Located only 0.46 degrees from the ecliptic, Regulus is regularly occulted by the Moon, but less so by the planets Venus and Mercury, and even less frequently by asteroids. Nonetheless, the last occultation of Regulus by Venus occurred on July 7th, 1959, and the next occultation by Venus will only occur in October of 2044. Due to the nodal positions of the other planets, including that of Mercury, Regulus will not be occulted by any planet for at least the next several millennia.
J.Allen Hynek of Project Blue Book wrote a major paper on the 1959 occultation. Not sure if he was involved with Blue Rose.


July 7th is an interesting date since it's the day in 2016 Afghan War veteran Micah Johnson climbed to the roof of El Centro College and shot several people, including five policemen who were fatally wounded. 

This happened just a few hundred feet from the Killing of the Divine King of Camelot on 11/22/63.

Micah Johnson was from Mesquite, Texas, where accused Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock kept a residence. 

"The All-Important 2044"

The year 2044 (Twin-ten Twin-four) seems to have some significance since there was such a big deal made over the number 2044 when the Apollo 11 engines were found a few years ago.

The exact date of the 2044 Regulus occultation? October 1.


But according to some astronomers Regulus might not make it to the occultation. There are claims Regulus is spinning apart and will self-destruct.

Well, Regulus A that is. You see, Regulus is actually a twin star. 
Regulus A is a binary star consisting of a blue-white main sequence star of spectral type B7V, which is orbited by a star of at least 0.3 solar masses, which is probably a white dwarf. The two stars take approximately 40 days to complete an orbit around their common centre of mass.
Twin. Twins.

Now I had assumed the premiere episode of Star Trek: Discovery dealt with Sirius, since it was about the collision of a binary star. 

And you know what they say about assuming anything.
The stardate is 1207.3, or May 11, 2256 in Earth terminology. The Shenzhou has responded to a signal from a damaged relay and arrives in order to make repairs.  
The relay is located in a region of space in close proximity to a binary star system in a state of stellar collision, and the collision has created a large debris field.

Might this somehow be a reference to Regulus? Let's see....
Gamma Hydra was the primary of its star system. The star was located in a region of space near the Federation-Klingon border and the Romulan Neutral Zone, in the Gamma Hydra sector. It was located six light years from a binary star system, where, in 2256, the first battle of the Federation-Klingon War occurred. 
Well, seeing as how Regulus the closest star in the closest major constellation west of Hydra, I think it's a pretty good chance it is. In light of all the rest of it.


But Regulus is not only the heart of Leo, it's part of The Sickle, formed with three major stars with Arabic names.

The Sickle. 


Is the Sickle the "dark secret" of the Harvest Festival?

We also saw a motherlode of Saturn symbolism and the Sickle is also identified with the Black Sun and Chronos. 

We especially saw a lot of Saturn symbolism associated with Jason Williams, better known as Jason Aldean, with all his black sun symbolism and tattoos and all the rest of it.

Guess what, Jason? They know now.

I never heard of this guy until recently but holy crap, do his handlers pile it on thick. Note the Saturn hexagon in the center with the 33/66 dashes forming the rings. That's Jason singing inside the hexagon.

And there's Saturn's hexagon.

Jason's big hit is "Burnin' It Down" so he plays up the fire symbolism. And the twin symbolism, since I'm guessing Saturn and Regulus are somehow connected in some people's minds.

I can't believe this guy is a Country star. 

Every time I hear Aldean, I think "Aladdin." As it happens Aladdin is a variant on Al Din, pronounced-- you guessed it-- Aldean.

And of course Aladdin comes to us from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Or 1001.

Or if you like, 10/01.

In my post on Chester Bennington's death I specifically pointed to Las Vegas and Luxor. Why? Because all of the signs I was following left me there. Do note that Jimmy Kimmel made a big splash with his anti-gun monologue after the Las Vegas shootings.

Its demolition was a major news story in 1998. 

For a couple years there, it was the best-known controlled demolition and the example people pointed to when the topic came up.

Yeah, there you go. 


And then we see Building Seven, which...yeah.

But as it happens, sickles- particularly antique sickles look an awful lot like 7s. And September means "seventh month."

Reminded me of NASA's Mercury patch, which incorporates the 7, ostensibly in tribute to the original seven astronauts. This was design after the program was completed.

And strangely enough, only 6 astronauts actually went up for Mercury.

But another funny thing about Regulus....

The six stars that form a backward question mark are more popularly known as the “Sickle” in the constellation of Leo, the Lion.
 The Sickle is an asterism — a noteworthy or striking pattern of stars within a larger constellation. 

And not only did the Challenger explosion form a giant Y in the sky, Mandalay Bay does as well. Funny that both directly involve Stephen Paddock.

And there's also a Y suggested by the Route 91 Harvest Festival favicon.

Why? I don't know Y.

Of course we looked at Marilyn Manson and his mishap in New York while he sang his cover of "Sweet Dreams"* by Scottish duo Eurythymics. Scottish

Marilyn Manson was famously paired with Rose McGowan back in the day and as such is also connected to the Hurricane Harvey Weinstein mess.

Heaven Upside Down is a fascinating title, since it connects to the ideas put forward by people like Graham Hancock, who claim that ancient megalith builders were trying to mirror the Heavens.

Or twin them, if you prefer.

And of course it was the Cocteau Twins 1990 album Heaven or Las Vegas that started this entire mess. 

Now we before we get into the homestretch let me just explain this whole fixation. You see, I got a couple Cocteau Twins EPS in high school and loved them, but I was more into punk and hard rock at the time so I kind of dropped it for a couple years. It wasn't until I met this singer from Queens in 1986 and he gave me a 90 min cassette with The Pink Opaque and tracks off Treasure and Echoes in a Shallow Bay that I got back into them.

Which is kind of putting it mildly.

It was more like I became convinced that this music was literally from some other reality and the mere fact that I could listen to it here meant the goddamn Apocalypse was upon us.

I'm not remotely kidding. And now I'm beginning to believe my first impression was correct.

And I guess it had the same effect on David Lynch too (Elizabeth Fraser was said to be his favorite living singer at the time). Twin Peaks, Las Vegas? Hello?


But we haven't gone into the man who the band was named for, French artist Jean Cocteau (specifically his novel Les Enfants Terrible or The Holy Terrors). As it happens he, like Elizabeth Fraser, believed he was simply a channel for his art and that heavenly forces were driving him. Tracy R Twyman writes:
Some of Cocteau’s more “secret-laden” works may have been, in fact, made at the request of the Priory of Sion. Cocteau repeatedly insinuated that his poetry and artwork came to him from somewhere else: either a divine entity, or a secret organization posing as a divine entity. He once said that he was, “only a medium, a hand that carries out instructions”, and that his murals for the Chapel of Saint Peter were “the work of a medium.” His poem L’Angel Heurtebise was written, according to Emboden, “under a mysterious spell… He believed that it came to him by a kind of divine revelation.”

And of course one of Cocteau's most famous works depicts a conspicuous Black Sun.

UPDATE: Here is the real meaning of "Cocteau Twins."

Cocteau's most celebrated film is Beauty and the Beast. I can't speak as to the veracity of this but this aligns with the September 23 meme which was supposed to be a fulfillment of Revelation 12: 1-2 (those twin numbers). An alignment the entire Internet was talking about.

There we see Beauty and the Beast: Virgo and Leo. 

And this now-iconic shot of the Beauty and the Beast of Las Vegas.

Beauty and the Beast also corresponds to the Eclipse. Of course, the Virgin Queen was Elizabeth the First.

Bonus Factoid: Beauty in the 2017 live action Disney adaptation is played by Emma Watson. 

She also starred in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which has the Cocteau Twins' "Pearly DewDrops Drop" in the soundtrack. She symbolically identifies herself with Elizabeth Fraser in the above clip. Note ram's horns.

Now, I'm not going to re-litigate my case here but I strongly believe David Lynch and I weren't the only ones who took Elizabeth Fraser at her word. And I strongly suspect that someone wanted to rub some of whatever she was hosting all over their own workings.

Or put simply, this woman is a genuine oracle in the classical sense, others have realized this and used her to bolster their own manufactured prophecies.

You start to notice all kinds of odd little things after a while and believe me, this band is most certainly not a semiotic superstore.

Things like that cover date (on the Robert Maxwell-owned Melody Maker; Maxwell would drown by the end of the year), which is the exact day this happened:
January 12, 1991 - United States Congress granted President George Bush the necessary authority to wage war to end Iraq's occupation of Kuwait.
For you keeping track at home that is the actual birthday of the New World Order.

Rupert Murdoch's SkyArts hired Fraser to compose the soundtracks to their Nightmare Worlds of HG Wells series.

What I was saying about rubbing some of that magic off on their own spells...

Or this in-between-trauma-hospitalizations story, dated September 11. (1993 was also the year of the World Trade Center bombing).

Or the fact that she was hired to voice the character who blows up the Towers of Babel in the British Government's absolutely insane Millennium Dome Show, LA Marzulli's worst Nephilim/Genesis 6:4 nightmares come to life and played twice a day for the entire year of 2000.

Fraser's character is the Eve of the Sons of God and the Daughters of Men. Who blows up the tower(s).

No, I am absolutely fucking serious.

Still not convinced? How about his inexplicable event that brought the reclusive singer out of hiding for another British Government production in another domed London building.º

On the First Day of Leo. Of this year. 

Heaven or Las Vegas, baby.


The image up top is from The Dark Secret of Harvest Home, the TV movie adaption of the Thomas ("Twin") Tryon novel. 

Here's an interesting factoid for you- Bette Davis (also known for her eyes) was born Ruth Elizabeth Davis and Elizabeth Fraser was born Elizabeth Davidson Fraser.

Davis means "David's Son."

The Dark Secret of Harvest Home.

The woman wielding the Sickle in the cap from Harvest Home up at the top (she was taking part in fertility ritual strongly echoing those of love goddess and her doomed consort) of this was also named Elizabeth and was played by Joanna Miles, who also appeared in Judge Dredd...

Which I believe is the only movie the Cocteau Twins ever contributed an original song (music biz code for "leftover") to.

The song was called "Need-Fire" in reference to a custom depicted by conspicuously body-stockinged actresses in The Wicker Man. A rather unsettling connection in light of the deadly "Radical Ritual" at this years Burning Man and the deadly wildfires in California.

Speaking of fire, guess what casino the Cocteau Twins played on their Heaven or Las Vegas tour?

The Aladdin. 

The Bagdad Showroom.

During the run-up to war with Iraq. 

See what I mean now?

And the unglamorous studio rats posed for a photo op in Caesar's Las Vegas in front of one of those Apollo statues I mentioned before. 

You know, the ones the Elvis statue on the Wolf River are based on. The one in the building directly overlooking the spot where Jeff Buckley drowned.  

You can't miss it- just take a left at the giant pyramid.

And wouldn't you know- Jeff Buckley is mentioned in the article, though only as "Tim Buckley's son" and "a big Cocteaus fan."† This might be his first mention in a major media outlet.

Weird thing about Aladdin though...

And a funny thing about Heaven or Las Vegas...

Those swoops of light not only remind of ones based on Saturn's rings you see in corporate logos, they're also in the shape of a sickle blade.

And as blind chance would have it there's a Saint Regulus. His feast day is October 17. That's his 33 meter tall tower next to twin towers of the ruins of Saint Andrew's Cathedral. 

It's about an hour's drive from Grangemouth.

UPDATE: Check out The X-Cast with yours truly guest-hosting. 

Talking about 'Conduit' and 'The Jersey Devil', which very much tie into many of the themes we've been covering here.

POSTSCRIPT: Braintree gets a shoutout on Jeopardy, which went up the day after Las Vegas.

*"Sweet Dreams" was rearranged to sound like a Cocteau Twins song for the Sucker Punch soundtrack.

† Elizabeth serenaded her future lover with a whole medley of personalized death omens such as "Blue Bell Knoll" (show opener), "My Love Paramour" ("Two different fates/ My love paramour, ooze out and away"), "Wolf in the Breast" ("I'll revenge all I need that day") AND "Road, River and Rail" AND "A Kissed-Out Red Floatboat".

º One which seems to have been facilitated by the prominent British composer and conductor Jules Buckley. No, seriously- his name is Buckley.
