"Like the Most High": Cracking the Vega-Cygnus Code

You may be one of those people who thinks they live in an ordered and rational universe, and not a roiling hothouse of magic, mysticism, and sorcery. 

You may think you live in a world where people in high places are preoccupied with petty trifles like money and power, and not with kicking the struts out from underneath the entire edifice of Creation and rebuilding the rubble into their own image.

I'll see what I can do to help you with that. I'm not here to judge.

Now bear in mind we're going to be looking a lot of stellar correlations to religion and myth, but this is not Zeitgeist-styled "Astrotheology." 

That practice requires one to believe that stellar rituals aren't -- and weren't --  being carried on a near-constant basis. I'm not one of those people. 

I have no reason at all to believe that the figures in the Bible stories weren't performing those same rituals as part of their religion. Perhaps for different reasons than we see today, but then again, perhaps not. It's not for me to say.

And I should also add there's nothing inherent in the stars that would dictate the events of Bible stories. It's not like the movements of the Sun and the seasons and those types of Astrotheological interpretations. At the end of the day we're just talking about random dots in the sky and the imaginary boundaries we put around them.

As Gordon White says, we put our stories into the stars. I'd guess that means, "not the other way around."

With that in mind, let's look at the "Fall of Man" narrative. 
Cepheus the Gardener is God, and Draco -- his rival at the pole -- is the Serpent. 

Eve/Cassiopeia is tempted to taste the Forbidden Fruit-- Polaris, the North Star -- by the Serpent and tells Adam/Perseus to do so as well.

Cepheus discovers this and casts Adam and Eve out of the Garden, which is why we see them falling away from the "Most High," meaning the highest constellation of the Celestial Plane.

Andromeda -- later Fallen Babylon in Revelation 18 -- is Adam's other wife Lilith, but we'll leave her aside for later. We discussed Leviathan when decoding the Goat of Mendes.
So what does this have to do with this weird fixation on Cygnus and Lyra? 

Although people tend to confuse them, the All-Seeing Eye is different from the Eye of Horus (Algol, in Perseus) and the Eye of Ra (the conjunction of Ophiuchus and the tail of Scorpio). 

The All-Seeing Eye in the case of the Great Seal is the Ring Nebula, discovered while the seal was being designed. The Unfinished Pyramid is created connecting stars in Lyra in order that Vega may be the cornerstone and the Ring Nebula the spiritual completion of it.

Both sides of the Great Seal are Lyra, as has been discussed before. John Adams -- who headed up the committee formed to create the seal --- revered the constellation for reasons never made clear.

Vega adoration continues apace, if not quite as blatant as it was in 2017. The Weeknd entered the Super Bowl through a simplified representation of Lyra with the Pepsi logo in place of Vega. This went well with the overall Las Vegas theme of the show.

Which we also saw in 2017 with Lady Gaga's Half-Time Show. You can always count on the NFLim for some in-your-face ritualism. We'll get to what that all "foreshadowed" soon.

The European Space Agency uses Vega rockets for their ritualistic ejaculations "missions."

And of course, Las Vegas is essentially the headquarters of the ongoing UFO blitz, thanks in no small part to former Senator Harry Reid. That all started back in October 2017, significantly.

We've discussed all the Cygnus workings news stories in recent months, and this particular use of the name ranks rather high on the list.

And sure enough, military contracting giant Northrop Grumman has a Cygnus ritual ejaculator spacecraft, which it uses with Antares rockets, just to keep things in the same general neighborhood of the night sky.

And then there's the famous Kepler space telescope, which spent the better part of a decade looking at -- you guessed it-- Lyra and Cygnus. 

What do you suppose they found so interesting about that little patch of the sky?

Well, it's really about storming Heaven, a dream going back millennia, most famously retold in the story of Nimrod the Hunter and his Tower of Babel. The real Tower of Babel was reportedly only 91 meters high, so it seems he had a ways to go. But you can't blame a guy for trying. After all, how would you get yourself back to the Garden, as it were?

Hint: not the same way Nimrod tried.

If we use the story of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel as a yardstick it looks as if entering into the Celestial Plane at the Spring Equinox was frowned up, at least at one point. 

Orion symbolizes a number of different figures in the Bible, but seems to represent a foreigner like Nimrod, or one who lives in the Wilderness (usually outside the Ecliptic or south of it) such as Elijah or John the Baptist.

So since Perseus represents the Fallen Adam, we need a redeemer to take us back to the Garden. And that redeemer is variously known as the Charioteer (who takes Elijah to Heaven) or the "Good Shepherd."

We're talking about Auriga, known to the Babylonians as the "Shepherd's Crook," and later as the Charioteer. But in between he is known as the Shepherd King David, and later Jesus Christ of the House of David. 

Christ is the Paschal Lamb who is crucified at the crossing of the Ecliptic and Celestial Plane, spends three days in a tomb or the Underworld (symbolized by Betelgeuse, Meissa and Bellatrix, later the wounds of Hiram in Masonic lore), and rises from the dead, meaning rises to cross the Ecliptic and enter the Stairway to Cepheus. 

The Gemini are the two angels at the Tomb. The various women are the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, which are symbolized by Christ exorcizing Mary Magdalene of the Seven Demons. 

The Risen Christ is Auriga, the Good Shepherd who is the way to the Father -- Cepheus -- at the "Most High" point of the Celestial Plane. 

The Bridle asterism of Auriga becomes David's slingshot in his battle with Goliath (Orion again) and Christ's whip as he clears the Temple -- the House of David -- of the money-changers.

I'm guessing the early Freemasons were familiar with these correspondences because they move things around for their own redeemer myth. 
Hiram Abif -- the Foreigner -- is Orion. 

He is building Solomon's Temple -- the House of David -- for David's Son, who is represented by Capella. 

The columns to the Temple -- Boaz and Jachin -- are Castor and Pollux, the Gemini.

The Three Ruffians are symbolized by the wounds of Hiram -- Betelgeuse, Meissa and Bellatrix -- as mentioned before.
It's almost as if you wanted to ritually storm the Gates of Heaven, you'd tear down Boaz and Jachin and then pierce the sky chariot of Auriga. Well, almost.


OK, OK, I hear you saying. That's all well and good, but we're on the other bloody end of the sky here. What does any of this have to do with Lyra and Cygnus?

Glad you asked. Let's read the words of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 6:

1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple.  

2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  

3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”

4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.  

Whenever you see smoke or ash or dust, start looking at the Milky Way. I'd say the same for the train of God's robe. 

So let's look again at the part of space the Kepler space telescope was focused on...

What is it we are looking at here? 

Well, you just read about it.

It's the Throne Room of God (Cepheus) and the Seraphim (Lyra and Cygnus). 

For some reason the NASA Freems find this area of outer space extremely interesting. Surely it must be for purely scientific reasons. Because everyone knows that NASA is beyond reproach.

This area the Kepler was obsessing on is also the eastern gate of the Garden of Eden, with Lyra and Cygnus as the Cherubim this time (same basic thing) and Sagitta as the Flaming Sword. It's actually an arrow, but there's no good reason not to call it a sword if you prefer.

The Seraphim hovering above God is a reference to the orientation of the sitting Cepheus to Lyra and Cygnus. Remember that Lyra is traditionally both harp and eagle, and that King David was associated with a harp to show his closeness to God. 

This is a bit more elaborate representation of the same part of the sky, with Ara just below the Ecliptic, the teapot of Sagittarius at Galactic Center, Ophiuchus offering up sacrifices to Cepheus (which in this instance looks to be Christ), and again Lyra and Cygnus as the Seraphim or Cherubim (whichever you prefer) guarding the Celestial Plane.

So, again: why are today's elite ritualists cold, objective scientists so fixated on Lyra and Cygnus, going so far as to spend a decade staring at them? Not the kind of thing you'd do if you thought it were all just fable.

Lyra and Cygnus stand as sentries at the East Gate of the Garden, or the Throne Room, or the Most High. Like the Gemini, they are the twins who stand in the way of the initiate seeking to enter the Kingdom. 

Or perhaps the initiate seeking to usurp the throne of the Most High. 

Isaiah again on King Hillel:

How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn!

You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens;

I will raise my throne above the stars of God;

I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,

on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.

I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;

I will make myself like the Most High.”

The language makes it crystal clear that God's throne is made of the highest stars in Heaven, meaning Cepheus. Clouds are another reference to the nebulae of the Milky Way. 

Hillel's sin here is to want to place himself atop the Heavens, but just as Venus he is always doomed to fall from the sky.

So how might high initiates see all this and what might they want to do to remedy this situation and avoid the eternal fate of the Morning Star? 

Let's see where the Throne Room described by Isaiah enters the picture again, this time in the Revelation of Jesus Christ to John of Patmos:

15:1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished. 
2 And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.  
3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!”

Seriously: I love that guy's writing. Magic.

We'll get into this at a later date, but Moses is Ophiuchus and the Lamb here symbolizes the Good Shepherd of Auriga, the constellations standing at each end of the Royal Arch of the Celestial Plane. The sea of glass and fire is the Milky Way, yet again.


So realizing that the angel's harps are the stars of Lyra -- especially Vega-- let's back it up a bit to the previous chapter:

The Harvest of the Earth 

14:14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.  

15 And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.”  

16 So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the earth, and the earth was reaped.

The Angel "like the Son of Man" is Bo├Âtes, who is also a Shepherd. Or a Buckley, in this particular instance. His Golden Crown -- or his Stephanos, if you prefer -- is Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown.

The other angel is Hercules, the Seed of Eve who bruises the Serpent's Head, the Serpent being Draco in this particular instance. 

Moving on to the next verse:

17 Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.  

18 And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.”  

19 So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.  

20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse's bridle, for 1,600 stadia.

The other angel with the sickle is Leo, whose chest and head are comprised of the Sickle asterism familiar to Secret Sun readers. 

The blood from the winepress seems to be pointing to Crater, the wine goblet riding atop the Water Serpent. 

"Outside the city" seems to indicate it lies beneath the Ecliptic and is therefore in the "Wilderness."

The other angel is Virgo, traditionally depicted as an angel. And no more feminine than traditional depictions of the Archangels, as Secret Sun readers well realize. 

What is Virgo's "authority over the fire" then?

Well, for my money that's the September 23rd, 2017 Grand Alignment in Virgo and Leo, in which the Sun was seen in Virgo, hence her "authority over the fire." 

Call me crazy, but I think that was the "go signal" for everything that followed. You'll see soon enough.

So what's the bloody harvest Virgo calls for?

Well, that's not for me to say, but I should mention the ill-fated Route 91 Harvest Festival the week following the Grand Alignment. By sheer dint of coincidence, surely. As is the fact that the aforementioned Tower of Babel was 91 meters high. Life's full of wacky coincidences like that, or so they say.

Anyway, the festival at which the unfortunate events took incorporated symbolism pointing us to the "Other Angel with the Sickle" and the constellation of Cancer.

In Secret Sun parlance, this is the...

... Beast from the Sea, of Revelation 13.

Damndest thing, though; that same sight also has this familiar iconography, of the Twins guarding the Arch. 

But in this case, the Arch leads back towards Cancer, and not towards Auriga. It's almost as if this is embracing the Beast of the Sea and not the Good Shepherd. I'm really not inclined to read that much into it, but it's interesting nonetheless.

But I feel duty-bound to mention how Revelation 13 ends:
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Just putting that out there.


What's more interesting is that the Griffins there were known to the Babylonians as Lamassu...

And a Lamassu sits in the same place as Cepheus in Babylonian star maps. 

Note that next to the Lamassu sits a horse and a field. In other words, a "paddock."

Seeing that this Harvest begins with a reaper wearing a Stephanos, I wonder what connection there may be with a Stephanos to a paddock, in the context of a Harvest of Blood. 

One of those enduring enigmas, I suppose.

Either way, an object said to be from Vega magically appeared in the Heavens 6+6+6 days after the Bloody Harvest in Las Vegas. That was also 3+3+3 days after the first announcement of the current UFO blitzkrieg. 

Oh, and 13+13 days after the Grand Alignment.

Just another of those weird, wacky coincidences life is full of.

For those keeping score at home, here's a map of the constellations we discussed. 

Pretty small chunk of the sky, all told.


We saw some interesting Vega symbolism in the days following the Bloody Harvest. There was a huge-- and rather inexplicable-- publicity blitz over American Doll's Luciana (read: "Anno Lucis") Vega, trans actor Daniela Vega presented at the Ausurs™, and Charlotte Vega played Danielle, an "alien" fallen to Earth in a long-form commercial created by the Spanish Christmas Lottery.

Given the fact that the name "Vega" comes from the Arabic term for "Falling Eagle," I couldn't help but wonder if we were being treated to some Nephilitastic symbology. 

And given the Daniela-Danielle coincidence, I couldn't help but be reminded of the ancient belief of the....

Bonus factoid: No less a luminary than Simon Magus was from the Tribe of Dan.

Bonus bonus factoid: The Tribe of Dan corresponds to Capricorn.
