The star in the east is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, on December 24, which aligns with the 3 brightest stars in Orion’s Belt. These 3 bright stars are called today what they were called in ancient times: “The 3 Kings!” The 3 kings and Sirius, all point to the place of the sunrise on December the 25th. This is why the 3 Kings follow the eastern star, in order to locate the sunrise… “The birth of the sun(Son)”
The Virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo, also known as the Virgin. Virgo, in Latin, means; Virgin. The ancient glyph for Virgo is; “The altered “ɱ. This why Mary along with other virgin mothers, such as Adonis’s mother Myrrha, or Buddha’s mother Maya begin with an M. Virgo is also referred to as, “The House of Bread”, and the representation of Virgo is a virgin holding a sheaf of wheat. This House of Bread and its symbolic of wheat represents August and September, the time of harvest. In turn, Bethlehem, in fact literally translates to “House of Bread”. Bethlehem is thus a reference to the constellation “Virgo” a place in the sky, and not on Earth.
There is another very interesting phenomenon that occurs around December the 25th, or the winter solstice. From the summer solstice too the winter solstice, the days become shorter and colder. From the perspective of the northern hemisphere, the sun appears to move south and get smaller and more scarce. The shortening of the days and the expiration of the crops when approaching the winter solstice symbolizes the process of death to the ancients. It was, “The Death of The Sun(son). By December the 22nd, the sun’s demise was fully realized, for the sun, having moved south continually for 6 months, makes its lowest point in the sky. Here a curious thing occurs; The sun stops moving south, (at least it seems to) for 3 days.
During this 3 day pause, the sun resides in the vicinity of “The Southern Cross” or “Crux”, constellation. And, after this time on December the 25th, the sun moves 1 degree, this time north, foreshadowing longer days, warmth and “Spring”. And thus it was said: “The Sun(son) Died On The Cross”, was dead for 3 days, only to be resurrected or born again. This why Jesus and numerous other Sun Gods share the crucifixion, 3 day death, and resurrection concept. It is the sun’s transition period before it shifts its direction back into the Northern Hemisphere, bringing Spring, and thus salvation.
However. They did not celebrate “The Resurrection of The Sun(son), until the Spring Equinox, or Easter. This is because at the Spring Equinox, the sun officially overpowers the evil darkness, as daytime thereafter becomes longer in duration than night, and revitalizing conditions of Spring emerges.
Now, probably the most obvious of all the astrological symbolism around Jesus regards “The 12 Disciples”. They are simply the 12 constellations of the Zodiac, which Jesus, being The Son(sun), travels about with.
Coming back to “The Cross of The Zodiac”, the figurative life of the Sun, was not just an artistic expression or tool to track the Sun’s movements. It was indeed, also a Pagan spiritual symbol, the shorthand of which looked like this. This is not a symbol of Christianity, but a pagan adaptation of “The Cross of The Zodiac”. This is why Jesus in early occult art is always shown with his head on the cross with the Sun behind him. For Jesus is the Sun(son), “The Sun(son) of God, The Light of The World,, The Risen Savior, who will “Come Again” as it does every morning. “The Glory of God”, who defends against, “The Works of Darkness”, as he is bron again every morning, and can be seen “Coming In The Clouds”, “Up In Heaven”, with his “Crown of Thorns”, or “Sun Rays”.
Furthermore, the character of Jesus, is a literary and astrological hybrid, and is most explicitly a plagiarization of, “The Egyptian Sun God; “Horus”. For example, encrypted around 3500 years, on the walls of “The Temple of Luxor”, in Egypt are images of “The Enunciation and Annunciation, “The Immaculate Conception”, The Birth” and “The Adoration of Horus”, the images begin with “The Thaw” announcing to “ “the Virgin Isis” that she will conceive “Horus”, then “Nef” The Holy Ghost”, impregnating her, and then “The Virgin Birth and Adoration. This is exactly the story of, “Jesus”. The Miracle Conseption. In Fact, the literary similarities between Horus, Jesus, Dionysus, Mithra Krishna, and Attis are staggering.
Now, of the many astrological-astronomical metaphors in the Bible, one of the most important has to do with, “The ages”. Throughout the scripture there are numerous reference to “The Age”. In order to understand this, we need to be familiar with the phenomenon known as, “The Precession of The Equinoxes”. “The Ancient Egyptians”, along with cultures long, before them recognized that approximately every 2150 years the sunrise on the morning of, “The Spring Equinox” would occur at a different sign of “The Zodiac”. This has to do with a slow angular wobble the Earth maintains as it rotates on it’s axis. It is called a precession, because the constellations go backwards, rather than through the normal yearly cycle. The amount of time that it takes for the precession to go through all 12 signs is roughly 25, 765 years. This is also called; “The Great Year”, and Ancient Societies were very aware of this. They referred to to 2150 year period as an “Age”. From 4300 B.C. to 2150 B.C. it was “The Age of Taurus”, “The Bull”. From 2150 B.C. to 1 A.D. it was The Age of Aries”, “The Ram”, and from 1 A.D. to 2012 A.D. it was “The Age of Pisces”, “The Fish” (Christian Holy Symbol is 2-Headed Fish) the age age from which we are currently ascending as we reach a higher consciousness and be delivered by means of a spiritual “Rapture” as we enter into “A New Age” - “The Age of Aquarius!” Which we are currently living.
