Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Are you really asking why a high priestess with symbols from the rites of foreign goddesses standing at the supposed entrance of the First Temple is blasphemous? How is this internal truth and access to divine knowledge is beyond me.

The real question is, does God have a personal relationship with You?

Hmm, thatís probably why history bred so many Christian sects who have fought each other with devilish cruelty.

Everyone is under attack by the Adversary, especially those who choose to serve God. Many are already captured, so they don't need to devote as much time to them.

My contention is, based on my own experience with Piscean placements, this isn't the result I would expect from a Piscean Age ruled by Neptune. More like a head-butting, Capricornian Age ruled by Saturn.

Before learning your theory, and as a Sagittarian, I would have blamed it on un-evolved Jupiter - like rigid coding.

That wouldn't have included a Devil as the great Adversary.

But Jupiter at my nativity is in Pisces and the 9th house.

9th house is opposite the house of the Goddess. But the whole configuration makes sense. Any aspect to your cazimi Mercury?

In 12/12, it's actually Apollo who Native-rules Sagittarius, with Jupiter as Regulating-ruler. Easy to associate Apollo with the Ascendant, with his origin stemming from the Egyptian Solar-god Horus.

The "Know thyself" guy, who drove the chariot of Sol up through the Gate of Dawn on the Eastern horizon. The "Most Greek of the gods", patron of the Nine Muses, and #1 son of Zeus/Jupiter. The Romans kept the name Apollo, without Latinizing it.

How does a myth rule a sign? Don't you have astronomical objects in astrology?

The center-top ring of the Olympian symbol (now used for the "Olympic" games) was for Apollo's Pythian Games, flanked by two of the Olympiad Games dedicated to Zeus. Apollo's games were more sacred and personal.

All Signs are ruled by measured points along the Ecliptic. The Ascendant is first in importance. The measured points are associated with deities from the Greco-Roman era during the tropical Age of Sagittarius.

That is no causal reasoning.

Astrology is correlative. Also, God-given.
