From Genesis to Revelation. On Earth as it is in the Heavens. As Above, So Below.
I can't say with any certainty what the theological or cosmological meaning of it all is, all I can tell you is that the Word is most definitely written in the stars. Just the plain facts. Which, I must admit, has made the Bible all the more fascinating for me (though your mileage may vary).
Gordon White wrote a book about all this, and he says that we place our stories in the stars. Which, contra Astrotheology, are just dots in the sky we impose our own interpretations on. I strongly suspect there was a powerful ritual element to all these correspondences, one that got lost after the Fall of Jerusalem and dispersement of the original Jews and Christians.
In fact, I have it on very good authority:
And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. - Genesis 1:14-19
So let's go over the basics here:
• The War in Heaven is the contention near the celestial north pole between Cepheus the Gardener and Draco the Serpent.• Cepheus sits at the northernmost point of the Milky Way, or Tree of Life, and Draco sits just outside.• Draco's head is closest to the "dust" of the Milky Way, which is why he's condemned to eat it.• Cassiopeia is nearest to Cepheus at the pole, which is why the Serpent approached Eve to tell her eat of the Forbidden Fruit, which is Polaris, the pole star.• Perseus follows Cassiopeia in the evening skies every night, which is why Adam follows Eve's lead and eats of the Forbidden Fruit.
• Adam and Eve are cast into the Wilderness, which usually describes the night sky outside of the Milky Way or the Zodiac.
• Cygnus and Aquila are the Cherubim -- winged angels -- guarding the Gates of Heaven/Cepheus. Lyra is mixed up in all this as well, which is why angels play harps, meaning lyres.• Hercules is just outside the Celestial Plane in the "Wilderness" to which Adam and Eve are banished, and so he becomes the Seed whose heel we see bruising Draco's head every night.
• The Fall is repeated in the Book of Revelation, as Cassiopeia becomes the vain queen on her throne.• Perseus becomes the Kings of the Earth sharing in her filth and adulteries (ie., blood sugar sex magic).• Andromeda AKA Lilith becomes Babylon Fallen.
• Like the Dust in Genesis, the "Smoke" of the Milky Way becomes the smoke of Babylon's burning.
And here's where it gets REALLY interesting.
Let's have a look at Cepheus for a moment:
What about now?
Although your old-school Egyptomaniac alt.researchers claim the church steeple is an obelisk (they think pee-pee talk is "transgressive" - Boomers, amirite?), it's pretty clear that it's actually Cepheus. Which makes a lot more sense in the context of our ongoing narrative.
Especially since it was these guys who came up with idea in the first place, right?
So it's pretty clear that this obsession with "getting back to the Garden(er)" goes back to the original Stonecutters and the current fellows are just carrying on the tradition of their Forefreemies.
