Post Moon Stories


In the early chapters of Genesis telling the story of creation, the word usually translated "God' is, as we have seen, "Elohim". Later Genesis ceases to refer Elohim and instead the word usually translated as 'God' is 'Jehovah'. Biblical scholars working outside the esoteric tradition have tended to explain what appears to them as two different names for the same God as the result of two different literary strands, the Elohim strand and the Jehovah strand, probably dating from different periods and woven together by a later redactor.

However, scholars working within the esoteric tradition have a much simpler explanation. Elohim and Jehovah are not different names for the same entity but different entities. Elohim is, as we have seen, a collective name for the Seven Spirits working together as the god of the Sun, while Jehovah came into being when on of these seven broke away to defend Earth from Venus.

In order to discover Jehovah's true, astronomical identity, we must look again at the iconography of his opponent, Venus. We must also continue to bear in mind that for ancient the history of the origins of the cosmos was as much about how human experience was put together, how experience gained its characteristic structure, as it was about how the physical universe was put together. In other words, it was much about the principles of human nature as about the laws of the natural world.

Human nature is so formed that any power I may have resist my animal desires -- Indeed what stops me from becoming a mere animal -- derives from my capacity for thought and reflection. Venus was traditionally depicted holding up a mirror, but not out of vanity as is nowadays supposed. The mirror was a symbol of the power of reflection to modify desire.

The god of reflection was the god of the great reflector in the sky - the moon. On all ancient cultures the moon regulated not only fertility but thought.

In fact the initiate priests believed that, in order to create the conditions in which human thought would be possible the cosmos had to arrange itself in a particular way. In order for human reflection to be possible, the sun and the moon had had to arrange themselves in the sky so that the moon reflected the light of the sun down to earth.

They also believed that this arrangement in the sky had to e reproduced on a smaller scale inside the human head. THere the pineal gland represented the sun, and the moony gland, which modify and reflect on the visions that the pineal gland received from the spirit worlds, was the pituitary gland.

This might seem one of the madder things that anyone has ever believed, but to the ancients it corresponds to their everyday, lived experience. They tracked small changes in their consciousness, which seemed to mutate with the changing positions of the sun and moon. Readers are invited to check their own experience to see whether their dreams are more vivid when the moon is big and full/.

If you observe oysters in a tray for a month, you will see that they wax and wane with the moon. Modern science has confirmed that the pituitary gland behaves like an oyster.

THE GOD OF THE MOON WOULD BECOME known to the hebrews as Jehovah and to the Muslims as Allah, the great god of though-shalt-not.

So at the climax of the great cosmic drama of creation, with the earth in danger of becoming a living hell, a new force arose to meet Lucifer. Just as the seven Elohim had acted to hold Saturn/Satan in check, now one of these seven broke away to become the god of the Moon, and from there directed operations to hold Venus/Lucifer in check.

This great cosmic battle against Venus was remembered in cultures around the world, for example in the story of Krishna's battle with the snake-demon Kaliya, in Apollo's battle with the Python and Perseus, on of whose attributes was mirror shield, combating the sexually ravenous dragon that threatened Andromeda.

The Jehovah of the Old Testament is a jealous, angry, and warlike god. The Hebrew tradition, Jehovah's forces are led by Archangel Michael. As the Book of Revelation has it: ' And there was a war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought against the angels... and the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent which deceiveth the whole world, he was cast out into the earth.

WE HAVE SEEN, THEN, THAT IN THE THIRD great act of the drama of creation, the god of the Moon won a great victory.

So began the era of the moon. The first three epochs of the cosmos, the mineral, vegetable and animal eras - Saturn-day, Sun-day and Moon-day - are remembered in the names of the first three days of the week. These days of the week are named after these three heavenly bodies in this particular order for this reason alone.

Never hear that version. Astrology considers the Moon as feminine.

Moon data says moon has risen here but I can't see it yet. Trees to the east.

The moon could be androgynous like Dennis Rodman.

It certainly is not of this world, or is it.

News hype reached quite a few people as we saw a lot of people on a tourist mountain. We were lucky to get the perfect spot and see it rise over the ridge of the mountains.

II. THE MOON MOSTLY A MALE DEITY.

We have already in part pointed out that the moon has been considered as of the masculine gender; and have therefore but to travel a little farther afield to show that in the Aryan of India, in Egyptian, Arabian, Slavonian, Latin, Lithuanian, Gothic, Teutonic, Swedish, Anglo-Saxon, and South American, the moon is a male god. To do this, in addition to former quotations, it will be sufficient to adduce a few authorities. "Moon," says Max Müller, is a very old word. It was móna in Anglo-Saxon, and was used there, not as a feminine, but as a masculine for the moon was originally a masculine, and the sun a feminine, in all Teutonic languages; and it is only through the influence of classical models that in English moon has been changed into a feminine, and sun into a masculine. It was a most unlucky assertion which Mr. Harris made in his Hermes, that all nations ascribe to the sun a masculine, and to the moon a feminine gender." 109 Grimm says, "Down to recent times, our people were fond of calling the sun and moon frau sonne and herr mond." 110 Sir Gardner Wilkinson writes: "Another reason that the moon in the Egyptian mythology could not be related to[paragraph continues]

p. 83

Bubastis is, that it was a male and not a female deity, personified in the god Thoth. This was also the case in some religions of the West. The Romans recognised the god Lunus; and the Germans, like the Arabs, to this day, consider the moon masculine, and not feminine, as were the Selênê and Luna of the Greeks and Latins." 111 Again, "The Egyptians represented their moon as a male deity, like the German mond and monat, or the Lunus of the Latins; and it is worthy of remark, that the same custom of calling it male is retained in the East to the present day, while the sun is considered female, as in the language of the Germans." 112 "In Slavonic," Sir George Cox tells us, "as in the Teutonic mythology, the moon is male. His wedding with the sun brings on him the wrath of Perkunas [the thunder-god], as the song tells us

'The moon wedded the sun
In the first spring.
The sun rose early
The moon departed from her.
The moon wandered alone;
Courted the morning star.
Perkunas, greatly wroth,
Cleft him with a sword.
'Wherefore dost thou depart from the sun,
Wandering by night alone,
Courting the morning star?'" 113

'In a Servian song a girl cries to the sun--

'O brilliant sun! I am fairer than thou
Than thy brother, the bright moon.'

p. 84

"In South Slavonian poetry the sun often figures as a radiant youth. But among the northern Slavonians, as well as the Lithuanians, the sun was regarded as a female being, the bride of the moon. 'Thou askest me of what race, of what family I am,' says the fair maiden of a song preserved in the Tambof Government--

'My mother is--the beauteous Sun,
And my father--the bright Moon.'" 114

"Among the Mbocobis of South America the moon is a man and the sun his wife." 115 The Ahts of North America take the same view; and we know that in Sanskrit and in Hebrew the word for moon is masculine.

This may seem to many a matter of no importance; but if mythology throws much light upon ancient history and religion, its importance may be considerable, especially as it lies at the root of that sexuality which has been the most prolific parent of both good and evil in human life. The sexual relation has existed from the very birth of animated nature; and it is remarkable that a man of learning and piety in Germany has made the strange if not absurd statement that in the beginning "Adam was externally sexless." 116 Another idea, more excusable, but equally preposterous, is, that grammatical gender has been the cause of the male and female personation of deities, when really it has been the result. The cause, no doubt, was inherent in man's constitution; and was

the inevitable effect of thought and expression. The same necessity of natural language which led the Hebrew prophets to speak of their land as married, of their nation as a wife in prosperity and a widow in calamity, of their Maker as their husband, who rejoices over them as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride: 117 this same necessity, becoming a habit like that of our own country folks in Hampshire, of whom Cobbett speaks, who call almost everything he or she; led the sensuous and imaginative ancients, as it leads simple and poetical peoples still, to call the moon a man and to worship him as a god. Objects of fear and reverence would be usually masculines; and objects of love and desire feminines. We may thus find light thrown upon the honours paid to such goddesses as Astarte and Aphrodite: which will also help us to understand the deification by a celibate priesthood of the Virgin Mary. We may, moreover, account partly for the fact that to the sailor his ship is always she; to the swain the flowers which resemble his idol, as the lily and the rose, are always feminine, and used as female names; while to the patriot the mother country is nearly always of the tender sex. 118 Prof. Max Müller thinks that the distinction between males and females began, "not with the introduction of masculine nouns, but with the introduction of feminines, i.e. with the setting apart of certain derivative suffixes for females. By this all other words became masculine." 119 Thus the sexual emotions of men created that grammatical gender which has contributed so powerfully to our
