Part II Saturn: the Lord of Time, the Golden Age, and the XXX Olympiad

Saturn is death that takes us beyond the limitations of mortal life, which is the gateway to the eternal.
 ~ David Frawley, Astrology of the Seerers


As I discussed in my last post, Saturn, the great Lord of the Rings, has been transiting the sign of the Virgin for the past two and half years appearing to trigger nostalgic memories of a lost Golden Age when it conjoins the Moon, the indicator of the collective consciousness.  By examining the synchronicity of the Saturn-Moon conjunctions and coincidence of unusual phenomenon (Norway Spiral, Venus Transit) and events (Obama's reception of the Nobel Peace Prize, Queen's Jubilee, Olympic Torch) surrounding the world premiers of Avatar and Prometheus, it became clear that the collective consciousness is being prepared for a shift of the ages and perhaps for the disclosure of our true relationship to the gods (ie ancestral aliens), and the return of a light-bearing, or Promethean, savior.  Now that Saturn has stationed in the late degrees of Virgo, it seems that the time of revelation may be upon us.  No where appears more prepared for the return of the Golden Age and Once and Future King than England, host of the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The origin of the Olympic Games is a veiled one told through conflicting myths.  According to Pausanias, the ancient games were created as a sporting event to honor the fall of Cronus (Saturn) and Zeus' succession to the throne of heaven.  The "Olympics" were named after Mount Olympus, the home of the gods.  Another account in Pindar's Olympian X , describe the games an offering to Zeus the by his son the Greek Hero and  demi-god Heracles after he completed his 12 Labors, which some believe correspond to the 12 astrological signs.  In Theosophist tradition, the 10th Labor , the Slaying of Cerberus and release of Prometheus from Hades, is assigned to the 10th sign, Capricorn: 

In previous labors, Hercules’ tasks have been focused mainly upon individual development and liberation from the thraldom of matter but, from Capricorn onward, his work takes on a universal perspective, embracing the idea of service to the Whole, and culminating in the World Savior in Pisces. He descends the mountaintop to join a needy humanity again, bringing them light and release.


Heracles freeing Prometheus, Christian Griepenkerl (1839-1916)

This summer the 2012 London Olympics commences with the Opening Ceremony that is scheduled to begins at 9 pm as the stars of Capricorn rise in the Eastern sky, and as Capricorn's ruler, Saturn, appears in the southwest skies in the constellation of Virgo just after sunset.  Saturn is also the atma karaka, the planet at the highest degree (29'35"), and planetary Lord of these events in which extraordinary athletes compete for the gold and opportunity to become god-like heroes. 

The 2012 Opening Ceremony

The Opening Ceremony is a celebration, or ritual, showcasing the cultural riches and history of the Host Nation. It generally features a parade of all competing nations and the highly anticipated entrance of the Olympic Flame that ignites the Cauldron to signal the start of the Games. The Olympic Flame is lit months before the games at the ancient Temple of Hera in Greece. The light of the Sun, representing the essence of the Sun god Apollo, is collected in a parabolic mirror until a fire is kindled by a "high priestess" and her Vestal Virgins.  In May modern performers representing the Vestal Virgins re-enacted this ceremony, and unexpectedly a gust of wind extinguished the flame which had to be reignited  -- oops (hmm?).   After the Lighting Ceremony the Olympic Torch was relayed across Greece for 7 days until it arrived in Athens on May 17, 2012 -- the day that Saturn entered Virgo.

The Lighting of the 2012 Olympic torch by virgin devotees of the Mother Goddess
From Athens, the torch was flown to England where it is currently being passed throughout the United Kingdom within 1 hour of 95% of the population.  The Torch Relay ends during the Opening Ceremony when the Olympic cauldron is lit.  The Olympic Flame continues to burn throughout the games and is extinguished on the day of the Closing Ceremony. Although it is generally believed that this ritual stemmed from ancient Olympic ceremonies, it is actually a modern invention.  The first Olympic Flame was inaugurated at the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles and the first relay of the Olympic torch was held at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, during the Nazi Regime, as an homage to Prometheus who stole fire from the gods and gave it to humanity.  The act of carrying the Promethean torch is symbolic of man’s awareness of his own divine spark and represents his aspiration to become one of the gods.  During the Olympics, winning athletes are not only given medals but also wreaths/crowns of olive leaves -- although some accounts say laurel which was only used for the gods.  The global attention to the modern Olympic games focuses the energy of billions of people on these rituals that raise humans to the status of gods; and this year the emerging archetypes suggest the Olympics may be used as a world stage to introduce the coming savior who will restore the Golden Age of Cronus/Saturn .




As the Lord of the Rings presides over this moment in time, its placement in the event chart of the Opening Ceremony indicates the tone and significance of whatever ritual may follow.  Saturn rules the eastern horizon in the sign of Virgo from the auspicious 9th house with the planet of energy, drive, competition and athletics: Mars.  The red planet itself is an indicator of a competitive athletic games, as well as a militaristic spectacles -- think of the Parade of Athletes as a Parade of Countries as paying tribute to the Olympic ideal of Global Unity.  The 9th house is an auspicious dharma house that represents our highest principles as expressed in domains like law, religion and philosophy.  In a natal chart it signifies the father and his influence over the individual's personal philosophy of life, perception of reality, and reaction to new ideas; but in an event chart it may signify the influence of the collective father over his country and world views.  In this case the 9th house of the father is ruled by the constellation of the Mother Goddess, Virgo, a sign of perfection, harvest, and completion of the planting cycle.  And don't forget that England, or rather Britain, is personified by the ancient goddess Britannia - one of the many faces of the Mother Goddess.

From an astrological point of view, it is a fascinating coincidence that the ruler of England is a Mother Goddess, the Queen (of Heaven) Elizabeth II; and Her Majesty will officially preside over the Opening Ceremony declaring the XXX Olympic Games "open" on July 27, 2012.


Opening Ceremony: The Isle of Wonder

You're standing on shoulders of giants - you cannot but live in the shadow of your predecessors. 
~ Danny Boyle, Artistic Director of the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?  

  
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.


 William Blake, Preface to Milton: A Poem 1810

During a recent unveiling ceremony, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle revealed his vision for the Opening Ceremony: a pastoral countryside (think Golden Age) featuring Glastonbury Tor (the legendary burial site of the Holy Grail) and real farm animals.  It is, he said, the green and pleasant land. It is something that still exists, and something that cries out to all of us like a childhood memory.  In addition to being an allusion to Blake's famous poem above, could this pastoral image be evoking a "childhood," or ancient, memory of the Golden Age, which Tracy Twyman terms Regnum in potentia?

What these myths of the Golden Age, Garden of Eden, and other primordial paradises really point to is the concept of a cosmic center: a kingdom that doesn’t really exist, except in the Otherworld, in potentia. But it is said to be at the heart of our own existence, and its essence can be felt everywhere. It is a place where there is no time as we know it. Rather, all points of time exist simultaneously, and all space as well. This is why the people who live there are said to never grow old.


Many in the conspiracy and occult history community, such as Tracy Twyman, believe this bucolic vision of the Opening Ceremony is meant to be an homage to the famous short poem And did those feet in ancient times by visionary artist William, who described England as the site for the New Jerusalem at the time of the Second Coming.  The poem was actually written as a preface to Blake's epic poem Milton, a Poem, and in 1916 was arranged to music by Hubert Perry in the hymn Jerusalem, which is an unofficial anthem for England, often played during Last Night of Proms (Prometheus?).  Conspiracy theorists like Rik Clay have pointed out that the 2012 logo resembles the word ZION.  Zion is often used as a synonym for Jerusalem or the World to Come in which the Messiah, or the Once and Future King of Arthurian legend, returns to rule over a new Golden Age. So is it any surprise that Prince William Arthur has Saturn in Virgo? The ever provocative Tracy Twyman proposes that he may in fact be the anti-Christ.

His bloodline can be traced back to the biblical House of David, and possibly Jesus himself, as well to the historical figure remembered as Satan. His marriage to Kate Middleton has been patterned on the ancient pagan May Day rituals of king sacrifice and sex magic. His bride has been quite consciously chosen to be modeled as a new Diana, a living incarnation of that “virgin queen” goddess referred to in St. John’s Revelation as the Whore of Babylon.

While its hard to imagine sweet Wils as the Biblical anti-Christ, Twyman makes very interesting case for William's future as King of the World ruling from the New Jerusalem.


William Blake, 1820 from his prophetic book
 Jerusalem - The Emanation of the Giant Albion [England]
The term New Jerusalem comes from the final book of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation written by John of Patmos.  In his prophetic vision of a New Heaven and a New Earth, John describes the descent of the Tabernacle or New Jerusalem as an enormous city (read mothership) coming out of the heavens down to the New Earth.  His elaborate description includes many features of the Garden of Eden and its garden, including as rivers, a square shape, a wall, and the Tree of Life -- all of which seem to be appearing on the Olympic stage over the past few weeks.  The Olympic replica of Glastonbury Tor, the fabled resting place of the Holy Grail, replaces Saint Michael's Tower with a tree.  Could this tree represent the primordial lands of ancient days of the Golden Age, the Biblical Tree of Knowledge, or the World Tree of Life?







The Tree of Life is a motif found in many cultures around the world representing a mystical concept of the interconnectedness of all life. This giant tree connects the Earth to the Heavens through its branches, and to the Underworld through its roots -- the axis mundi where communication from lower realms may ascend to higher ones, and blessings from higher realms may descend to lower ones.


Mayan world tree denoting cycles of world ages

Carl Johan Calleman asserts that the world tree represented by the Mayan Hunab Ku is the creative center of the Universe in Mayan cosmology. He writes: the Mayan calendar provides a description of the rhythms of creative energies emanating from this hypothetical Tree of Life and is testable to what extent the actual rhythms of evolution conform to the time plan that this calendar specifies. In The Purposeful Universe he suggests that the Mayan Calendar tracks these evolutionary waves from a Center Axis of the Universe itself, which, according to cosmic background radiation studies (Longo 2007), appears to be located in the direction of the constellation of Virgo. Currently this axis lines in the plane of the ecliptic and has a direction parallel to the equinoxes of the earth.  Could the return of the Mother Goddess represent realignment to this Central Axis allowing evolutionary energy to move more freely?

Other astronomical research suggests that this Cosmic World Tree may be aligned with the earth's poles. Astronomers Nodland and Ralston have studied polarization rotation data for 160 galaxies and have perceived that in addition to the Faraday effect, there seems to be an extra mysterious angular dependency at work. They have demonstrated that the flat disk of the entire Universe must also be surrounded by an energy field in the shape of the spherical torus – a sphere with a central north-south axis.
Nodland and Ralson’s discovery of a “Universal Axis”, or anisotropy cone.
  As new age researcher David Wilcock (I know) reveals:
Nodland and Ralston point out an interesting synchronicity surrounding the names of these constellations: In a curious way, the anisotropy direction reveals itself as that orientation of the needle of a cosmic compass around which the polarization plane of electromagnetic radiation twists the most as the radiation journeys through the fabric of space. It is interesting to note that the constellation Sextans stands for the sextant, the ancient navigational instrument by which seafarers would orient themselves. Aquila, by the way, is the messenger from Heaven – the mythological Eagle leading souls to immortality.
Aquila is also the giant bird that Zeus sends to devours Prometheus' liver every day in Hades.  Heracles shoots it down with a volley of arrows as he rescues the light bearer. Afterwards the Eagle, the Titan and the Arrow were placed all amongst the stars in the form of the constellations Aquila, the Kneeler and Saggita.



Astrologers associate the stars of Aquila with the sign of Capricorn, but astronomers know it hovers above both constellations of Capricorn and Sagittarius.  In either case, whether the Cosmic Tree is rising on the horizon in Capricorn or transmitting its shakti from Virgo through the planet Saturn, it is an archetype that is being expressed in the Opening Ceremony as replica of the World Tree.


Eagle of Patmos, 1400-1450
And it gets more interesting. The writer of the Book of Revelation, John of Patmos, is also known as the Eagle of Patmos.  He also describes a Tree of Life in the New Jerusalem:

On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:1-2
Here the river may be the Milky Way and the fruit of the Tree of Life may be shakti expressed through the twelve zodiacal signs through the Sun each month.  What is striking to me is the use of the leaves to heal the nations -- could this be an archetypal reference to the Olympic wreaths?




William Blake's poem describes this New Jerusalem as shining forth from England's clouded hills.

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills?
 
And so, is it really a surprise that Artistic Director Danny Boyle promises to produce artificial clouds and rain during the Opening Ceremony in case the night is clear and does not fairly represent Britain's wet climate. What sort of magic is he brewing?  New photos released this week reveal a change of scenery as the bucolic green hills have been transformed into industrial age architecture of smoke stacks, cotton looms, and winding gears.



Could the artificial clouds, urban sprawl and smoke-belching factories refer to Blake's "clouded hills" and  "dark Satanic mills."  Perhaps the most intriguing new feature, in addition to the obelisk in the middle of the stadium eye, is an 80 foot high figure which is covered in a black shroud and appears to be holding a staff or wand.  Many suggest that this figure be the sorcerer Prospero from Shakespeare's The TempestBoyle himself has indicated that the Bard's last play is a major source of inspiration for the Isle of Wonder theme: a remote enchanted island where Prospero has been banished by his brother who unjustly usurped his throne.

As The Tempest is not a Shakespearean play that I am familiar with, I had to do a quick review of online notes, so please forgive any inaccuracies in my recounting of the mythology.  The play begins with a dramatic shipwreck during a storm that has been magically conjured by the main protagonist Prospero.  During his twelve years of imprisonment on the island, Prospero has developed skills of sorcery and learned to control the elements and spirits on the island.  The storm is part of a plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place by using illusion and skillful manipulation. Starting to sound familiar? Throughout the play Prospero manipulates the airy sprite Ariel (aerial?), whom he rescued from an enchanted imprisonment in a tree, and uses him as his spy promising him freedom.  In Act III, Ariel appears with a clap of thunder at an illusionary banquet conjured by Prospero, and with a flap of his wings the banquet disappears.  So what might an Olympic Prospero conjure?

All hail, great master! grave sir, hail! I come
To answer thy best pleasure; be't to fly,
To swim, to dive into the fire, to ride
On the curl'd clouds; to thy strong bidding
task Ariel and all his quality.

The Olympic Opening Ceremony will commence with the ringing of the largest harmonically tuned bell in the world as the Capricorn constellation of Aquila (the Eagle) rises on the eastern horizon in the nakshatra of Shravana -- which literally translates as "hearing" and is symbolized by an ear.  It alternative name is Ashvattha, meaning -- wait for it -- the Pipal Tree (Ficus Religiosa) under which Buddha received his enlightenment.  

The symbol of the ear reflects the ability to hear the subtle etheric realms, or the cosmic OM.  Traditionally the ringing of bells may be associated with church bells which are rung in three basic ways: normal ringing, chiming, or tolling.  Normal ringing occurs when bells are used as a call to worship; chiming may be a single ring as in baptism or three rings during the Lord's Prayer; and tolling is a slow ring that is associated with death and funerals (and a term often used to describe the Olympic bell ringing).  In Tibetan traditions bells are ritual instruments used to drive away evil spirits.  They are paired with the vajra, or thunderbolt.  The bell represents the female principle, and the vajra the male principle.  To achieve enlightenment the two must be combined.  Bonpo shaman use this tool to cast spells, project thoughts, or receive information from the ether.  Thus the vibration from the ringing of bells may open inter-dimensional portals to etheric realm to interact with the angelic and other beings.



On the morning of the Opening Ceremony, all the bells in Britain will be rung as quickly and loudly as possible starting at 8:12 am for three minutes.  This ritual is the brainstorm of artist and musician Martin Creed called Work No. 1197.  Under the rising stars of Leo and the nakshatra of Magha, this national ringing is being performed under the watchful eyes of the Pitris, the ancestral fathers of humanity.  Are they being called forth? According to David Frawley, Magha gives the power to leave the body (tyage kshepani shakti) and causes a change of state or condition, a kind of death.  It shows that we are coming to the end of a cycle -- perhaps the end of the age of iron, and beginning of the Golden Age?

Remember the 1946 movie It's a Wonderful Life?  In its emotional heartfelt ending, little Zuzu reminds us that teacher says, everytime a bell rings an angel gets its wings.  Is there some link between bells and angels, possibly enabling their flight? How about bells and eagles?  Remember Psalm 91:1-16: I will raise you up on eagles wings.   So what kind of being needs a bell as big as the Olympic Bell to gain its wings -- and titan sized ones at that?  Furthermore Boyle had the idea for ringing in the Olympic Games with a big bell after buying an old one from the foundry to use at the National Theater for his award-winning production of Frankenstein [a modern Prometheus].  What kind of monster is Boyle developing this time? Well a tantalizing clue from The Tempest is inscribed on the gigantic bell: Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises.



The 23 tonne Olympic Bell made by Whitechapel Bell Foundry


This inscription is derived from part of a speech made by the strange hybrid creature Caliban in the third act of The Tempest.  Caliban is described by Prospero as a cavaluna, or moon calf and son of the devil.  His mother was the witch that had imprisoned Ariel in a tree.  In his first speech to Prospero, Caliban insists that Prospero stole the island from him just as Prospero's brother usurped his dukedom.  Like Ariel, he becomes a slave to Prospero, but a resistant one.  While Ariel is airy, Caliban is of the earth.  Despite his grotesque appearance and foolish behavior, Caliban delivers beautiful speeches about his enchanted island, including the one quoted on the Olympic Bell.

Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep
Will make me sleep again; and then in dreaming
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again
(III.ii.130–138).

This speech is Caliban’s explanation to Stephano and Trinculo of mysterious music that they hear by magic. Not only does it conveys the wondrous beauty of the island and the depth of Caliban's attachment to it, but it also suggests that he is able to hear the cosmic OM represented by the nakshatra of Shravana.

Fuseli's Prospero, Miranda, Ariel, and Caliban

According to the Puranas, the three stars of Shravana correspond to the three steps taken by Vishnu in his Vamana-avatar, the dwarf who grew so large that one foot touched the entire Earth, another foot was touched by the heavens and a third touched upon the demon-king Bali's head.  It seems to me that Bali and Caliban are similar archetypes.



These three steps were taken by Vishnu to establish order in the universe through the restoration of the heavens to the gods and earth to the human beings.  Both Dennis Harness and David Frawley, whose moon is placed here, agree that the energy associated with Shravana is samhanana shakti, the power of providing connection; but according Prash Trivedi, it is apradhishya shakti: the power to give permanent victory. Both seem appropriate, but as Dr. Frawley explains: Vishnu with his three strides links together the three worlds of Earth, Atmosphere and Heaven, connecting all creatures with God. So under the asterism of Shravana the Olympic Opening Ceremony will receive its samhanana shakti of providing connection between the earth and heavens, man and gods.


Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.

And how might these images manifest in the Olympic Games?  Well it seems that during the Torch Relay across the British Isles, Olympic-Promethean flame has been photographed with torchbearers reenacting a classic scene from the Oscar-winning  movie Chariots of Fire, which is another name for UFOs.  If Blake's poem is a framework for the Opening Ceremony program, then we might expect to see some sort of mothership, or tabernacle, descend from the skies.  Ever since the 1984 Olympics, there has been a strange tradition of peppering the marketing and opening ceremony with extraterrestrial themes, and this year is no exception. Check out the 2008 marketing video which is full of flying serpents, UFOs, magically assembling buildings, and even a colorful mothership.






If this is not enough, check out the recently disclosed list of music to be played during the Opening Ceremony.  Remember Shravana is symbolized by the ear and represents learning by the act of listening, called shruti, or "hearing" the vibrations and words of wisdom.  Although the Olympic Committee has not confirmed that these 86 songs are the official soundtrack, the Telegraph UK believes it is a good indication of what is to come.  Just what message will be broadcast to the world during this global ritual?



And finally, today, under another Saturn-Moon conjunction (read: imprinting the collective mind with the promise of a Golden Age) with Venus, the planet most often associated as an artistic muse (not to mention Prometheus), stationing direct after her long retrograde and transit, it was announced on the Tower Bridge, freshly garnished with Olympic rings, that the British rock trio Muse has written the official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games (click here and here for BBC link to a short clip of Survival):
The song, "Survival," is a thundering rock anthem that was being broadcast for the first time Wednesday on BBC radio. It will be played during the July 27-Aug. 12 games as athletes enter the venues and before medal ceremonies. Muse frontman Matt Bellamy says the song was written with the Olympics in mind and "expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win." 

And of course:

Last month the trio carried the Olympic torch through their hometown of Teignmouth in southwest England as part of the flame's 8,000-mile (12,900-kilometer) journey to the games.

Three muses and a Olympic Torch -- the triangle/pyramid with all seeing eye represented by the eternal flame

Our young Promethean muses reveal the all-seeing eye at the top of the triangle/pyramid base of the Olympic Torch.   Strange that a band who claims to have been influenced by books like Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, Kathleen Taylor's Brainwashing: The Science of Thought Control, Michio Kaku's Hyperspace, and Zecharia Sitchin's The 12th Planet would become part of the machine that they rail against in The Resistance album (2009) that addresses themes related to the new world order and worldwide revolution.  Are they showing their fans that they are hip to the secret of the eternal flame? The lyrics to Survival assert the Olympic athletic determination and will to win; and a desire to share this special strength with the whole human race -- whatever that means -- a very disguised reference to Prometheus? Perhaps Muse will finally fulfill their plan to play a gig in space if their grating music doesn't frighten off all the airy beings called in for the ceremony.  In any case, is the first "bombastic" taste of a track from the upcoming album Second Law, referring to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, due to be released in September (perhaps the 17th -- of course). Click here for video.

London Eye
Like its previous album, The Resistance, Muse explores ideas about the fate of humanity before the inevitable heat death of the universe in Second Law.  With the world running out of resources, mankind will have to launch off into space to survive.  Where have we seen this scenario before?  Oh yes, in the movies Avatar and Prometheus.  Is the official 2012 Olympic song Survival not just about surviving competition, but also about the mining of space so that the human race will survive?  Here are some of the lyrics. What do you think?

It's a race, and I'm gonna win/Yes, I'm gonna win/I will light the fuels/ I'll never lose/I choose to survive/Whatever it takes/He won't pull ahead/'Cause I'll keep up the pace/And I'll reveal my strength to the whole human race.

So just who will reveal their strength to the whole human race during the Olympic Games?  Saturn, that's who.  On August 4, 2012 Saturn will enter Libra, its sign of exaltation and greatest strength continuing its transit through the nakshatra of Chitra and its singular star Spica.



This asterism is ruled by Mars which imparts tremendous energy and creativity to accumulate merit in this life, punya cayani shakti. No wonder it is called the star of opportunity.  The deity associated with Chitra is Twashtar,  a form of the creator usually called Prajapati, the cosmic craftsman and architect, who inspires all artistic activity.
William Blake, Ancient of Days

The influence of this nakshatra on the planet of form and manifestation is to bring cosmic forces of creative magic to the earth and make everything beautiful and colorful.  But the symbol of this asterism is the pearl, whose glistening array of shiny bright colors belie the irritating forces that stimulated its development from a grain of sand to valuable gem.  Saturn's relentless weight is described with similar metaphors, such as the physical pressure it takes to turn black carbon into a brilliant white diamond.  Thus Saturn's transit through Chitra may grind old foundations into sands that become future gems, or turns lead into the gold, all of which line the streets of the New Jerusalem.

I Saw a Chapel, by William Blake

I saw a chapel all of gold
That none did dare to enter in,
And many weeping stood without,
Weeping, mourning, worshipping.

I saw a serpent rise between
The white pillars of the door,
And he forc'd and forc'd and forc'd,
Down the golden hinges tore.

And along the pavement sweet,
Set with pearls and rubies bright,
All his slimy length he drew
Till upon the altar white

Vomiting his poison out
On the bread and on the wine.
So I turn'd into a sty
And laid me down among the swine.

i'm still in awe of the Norway spiral, none of the others that claim to be the same thing don't look like the Norway spiral to me

Prometheus at 30 Rock resonates Saturn for me although i agree with Christoper Loring Knowles that it resonates Mithras and Horus a well

Hi Greg,

Yes, I agree that Prometheus resonates more with Mithras and Horus as a light bearer -- Saturn is definitely more about shadow.

Great Blog, I have been making a vid about the Olympics, and I was looking information on what Saturn will be up to during that period. You have more than answered my query.
I wrote a blog a few months ago about pearls, "The Bells the shells and the Santiago Compostella"., your pearl info would have been useful to me then.
I dont mean to criticise, as I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog, but the British Royals did not descend from the Messianic King David, there is not a jot of evidence to back this up, Ive spent this last year studying the Royals, William in particular, they would have us believe they descend from David, its just one of the illusions they spun.

Yes, as a US citizen I am no expert on the royals. . . thank you for you clarification about their so-called genetic link to King David -- it's all part of the big snow job. The comment on the bloodline of David is not from my research but from an article by Tracy Twyman's -- which is also excellent.

I am working on another post connecting the Opening Ceremony with Lughnasadh -- again out of my familiar stellar territory, so please feel free to add any comments if you read that one!!

I have also found your blog to be very informative as well. In particular the toxicity of the O2 dome -- I tried to find out more info, but your article filled in all the missing pieces!! Excellent work.
