The Zodiac & the Sun.
Our observations of the sun is indicated/marked though various markers which we call time represented by, days, weeks, months and years.
Annually the position of the Sun relative to Earth is tracked in the measurement of months, of which there is 12 months:
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December. (noted in Musings Pt.1 derive from Roman/Latin (Gods/Emperors)
Which in turn are divided into weeks days, hours, minutes and seconds. Overlaying the Roman months! is also 12 Star signs, also known as horoscopes or houses or 12 tribes… Each with varying degrees of characteristics and esoteric meanings.
Additionally within the 12 months/signs is the 4 seasons on Earth, known as Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter, which are intersected by equinoxes and solstices.
The 12 Star signs intersect with the 12 months of an annual year on Earth, each represented as a Symbol and a Glyph. (Which connect back to the Hellenistic age) (Greco era)
What is an Analemma you ask!?
Take your camera, and place on a tripod and every day in a fixed position, at the same time everyday, weekly or each month. (Monthly easier) And the end result is the motion of the sun’s position throughout the 12 months of the year which resembles a figure of 8 loop. This loop will be important to recall at later point in my blog posts.
This phenomena which I came across in recent years I find fascinating and the more I’ve looked into it, is to realise the lack of common knowledge from a lot of people. Which has me alarmed and questioning why aren’t things like this taught in school or just general knowledge about the world and beyond that we live in. As a child I was heavily into astronomy/space and geography, but was genuinely stumped coming across this.
Even more interesting was overlaying the Analemma layout in conjunction with the 12 months and star signs, to uncover the astrological personifications of each star sign, correlating the suns position and the effect it’s having on the Earth, and it’s four seasons, equinoxes and solstices and it’s impact on the human and natural world (specifically the northern hemisphere of Earth.)
The above image Fig.6 the Christian cross the intersection of the cross overlaid with the analemma and the movement of the sun from the ground on Earth is also an interesting observation.
As the cross represents the life, death and resurrection of a particular figure within the faith itself. It also parallels the life/death and resurrection of the Sun, moving through the 4 seasons of a 12 month annual cycle.
Spring representing the rebirth of the sun/son
Summer representing the full living sun/son
Autumn representing the dying sun/son
Winter representing death of the sun/son
When these seasons are again placed in line with the zodiac (which itself is intersected by that cross in the middle!) You see astrological star signs are telling the story of the sun/son and it’s annual journey of death and rebirth upon a cross…
The Analemma, is an even larger cross which is the path of the sun as it intersects the equator and tropic lines of the earth to give our seasons. (notably the northern hemisphere) where the winters are more significant than in the southern hemisphere.
Our lives and various mystisms that underpin to belief systems and certain social constructs link to this particular observation of the journey of sun/son and seasonal changes over a 12 month cycle.
The purpose here is to begin my process of connecting the dots, tees and crosses. And welcome thoughts in the comments section below from interested readers.
Inspired by a few others who have delved into the meaning of things… something as simple as the days of the week, months and years. In particular the naming convention of these markers and indicators of the passage of time, the sun and the moon. Derived from Hellenistic astrology, where the seven planets, known in English as Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon
The 7-day week.
Sunday – literally “day of the sun” (dies solis) Helios in Greek
Monday – literally “day of the moon,” (Lunæ dies) Selene goddess deity in Greek
Tuesday – literally “day of mars” (dies Martis – Roman god of war) from Ares in Greek mythos and much later Old English tiwesdæg, from Tiwes
Wednesday – literally “day of Mercury” (dies Mercurii) translated from Greek Hermes and Woden in Old English for Odin
Thursday – literally “day of Jupiter” (Jovis dies) from Greek dios hēmera “the day of Zeus.” and much later old English and Norse. Day of Thor
Friday – literally “day of Venus” (dies Veneris) which itself translated from Greek Aphrodites hēmera. Much later is Old English frigedæg from Norse mythology Freya – goddess of sexual love and beauty.
Saturday – literally “day of Saturn” (Saturni dies) loan-translation of Greek kronou hēmera, literally “the day of Cronus.”
So… who are these Hellensitic gods? who is Helen? Who are these Roman & Greek gods and why are the planets named after them? what is the significance that we use these names day in and day out to note the passage of time, days months & years.
History scholars tell us “The Hellenistic period” covers the period of Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BCE and the emergence of the Roman Empire as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BCE and the conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt the following year.”
But human history reigns and spans far further than this period, which in comparison this period is a very small part. Although a significant one which has since dictated how the western world is run to this day.
I will stop here, as I intend to ping-back later on in my entries. (which will seem a bit random) but that’s why I started this blog to connect the dots and share wider.
Not quite the beginning but given the right amount of motivation from a few vested individuals. This marks the beginning of telling my story or entry. During 2020 the year of absolute worldly chaos.
I’ve had an idea to start writing for sometime now and in part have put it off, but also due to a lot of personal events which have taken my focus of getting to this starting point but i’m here now.
From work colleagues, family and close friends. you need to write a book, you know so much. (do I? or did I just take some time out to understand my reality and question my reality an what I take for granted everyday or I am told that’s just how it is.) So i’ll start with a blog and hopefully some interactions with readers. Regardless I just need out whats in my head.
Anyway lets go on this journey. I expect this blog to flow in and out of current times and lots of delving into history,etymology, spiritual concepts and so on.
So… what happens when you scratch and dent the surface a little and then lift the veil? What happens when you challenge perceived common consensus? So far to date among my small circle of influence and audiences… Mixed responses, from wow this is amazing and just wow, to you’re a crazy conspiracist what do you actually believe in? Do you believe in god etc…
What is a belief?
Old English belyfan “to have faith or confidence” (in a person), earlier geleafa (Mercian), gelefa (Northumbrian), gelyfan (West Saxon), from Proto-Germanic *ga-laubjan “to believe,” perhaps literally “hold dear (or valuable, or satisfactory), to love” (source also of Old Saxon gilobian “believe,” Dutch geloven, Old High German gilouben, German glauben), ultimately a compound based on PIE root *leubh- “to care, desire, love”
Meaning “be persuaded of the truth of” (a doctrine, system, religion, etc.) is from mid-13c.; meaning “credit upon the grounds of authority or testimony without complete demonstration, accept as true” is from early 14c. General sense “be of the opinion, think” is from c. 1300. Related: Believed (formerly occasionally beleft); believing.
For me I spot a red flag with the meaning and I’ll delving into observations like this a lot. ( Conscious i’m using the same said language to have this observation :@) ) and also delving into origin of languages and significance of timing in line with world events and publications which in turn have changed the world or still impact the world to date.
