Here is Abes shrine. This ,and his actual burial place,are full of pentagrams.

He was born in the 9 th century . He died in 1005 .

Pentagrams predate any "witchy" or wiccan or satanic incarnation,by 1000s of years .

They stole it .

Abe was an herbalist ,healer,astronomer,sorcerer ,astrologer . He knew acupuncture too .He worked for the emperor and the shogun .He did exorcisms .

I'm sorry to hear you are disabled .

You seem pretty able to me.

Heliacal star ,I have never hear of these .

Can you elaborate on them more ?

And for me,I do most everything an onmiyoji does.

My ex boyfriend picked up on that,before I did.

Acupuncture,herbs,magick ,astrology .

Taoist monks didnt even do all of that .

By onmiyodo were always men naturally .

I have much past stuff,in asia.

I know japan,but I am pretty sure China,and maybe Vietnam too .

Hi Simbi,

Don't feel sorry about disablement, i'm really okay about it, while being in the music business, my friends knew me as Derek Williams, but my name is Derek William Smith, Smith not being a good name, but works for Will Smith ha ha! Link to Disablement below, i know moderators won't like this but i know what i'm doing:-

*Snip*

The English have a strange sense of humour, so please forgive my metaphor's and symbolism, i see that you have a Far Eastern Dynasty, so you may understand my strange humour, for i call my disablement Kung Fu Panda Syndrome ha ha!

I have Bamboo spine, which means that my immune system is constantly building bone over the discs in my spine, thus i have a rigid spine, hence the panda joke!

It is sad that the Onmiyodo were always men, but there have been some powerful women in history, however the one i'm thinking of had a tragic ending, pitted against a more powerful foe, however she did fool the most powerful man in the world, and she is immortal in calendars!

I'm talking about the Greek Dynasty Queen Cleopatra, her beliefs were she was Isis on Earth and she was very craft skilled, she itched to change the Egyptian Calendar to sunset, which is the day start for ancient Greeks, she got her chance with a new calendar called THE JULIAN, that Julius Caesar wanted to install in the Roman Empire....ha ha she tricked him!

Please scroll down link to "TIME" to note that ancient Greeks valued Sunset as start of the day, not sunrise as the Romans and Egyptians did:-

http://en.wikipedia...._of_measurement

If you scroll down to second entry on link below, you will find that the Julian Calendar was established on 1st January 0045BC, so sunset previous was on 31st December 0046BC, both Cleopatra and Julius Caesar were in Egypt during this time, with Caesar wanting to change the hopeless Roman Calendar into a system that was more accurate, being the Egyptian Calendar but with leap day adjustment.

http://www.datesinhi...y.com/jan01.php

I'm sure that Cleopatra saw in negotiating that as the Sun set, the Isis star Sirius was rising in Thebes now called Luxor and by Greek style day marker on 31st December 0046BC, and Thebes is an auspicious location! You can see this by two graphs below both timed at 17:19pm on date, diagram one shows Sun Setting, Diagram two shows Sirius rising!

Links below, it must be said i'm far more interested in Cosmic Rising or setting than Heliacal rising and setting:-

http://2012forum.com...=3839&mode=view

http://2012forum.com...=3840&mode=view

As you asked about heliacal rising/setting and Cosmic rising/setting, i have left link below for definition:-

http://www.sizes.com...risesetstar.htm

When it came for adjustment in 1582, ancient principles were followed on in the Gregorian Calendar, however because of time being controlled by Greenwich, UK, and change from local time to timezones, you now have to be in the right location now to see that Cleopatra still rules in the heavens and thus immortal, for the Gregorian calendar is not aligned to sunset or sunrise but midnight, and you in New York are in the right location to see Sirius culminating in the centre of the sky at midnight on 1st January 2013, i hope you have a clear night to see Cleopatra/Isis/Sirius at New Year, hows that for Girl Power? ha ha! Link below:-

http://earthsky.org/...of-the-new-year

Led Zeppelin were esoteric so i'm sure that the words below were encoded to mean Cleopatra:-

"There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold, and she's buying a stairway to heaven"......I know you like Robert Plant!

Awesome stuf monk. I had a vision about phi once quite an interesting one involving the Pleiades entity.

You might find it interesting though not surprising the the largest map of dark matter we have so far reveals fractal patterns.

I'm curious if any of you keep a grimoire or book of shadows, and if so what you personally keep in it?

I basically made notations in all my books,and I have to say,once in a blue moon,I recall a spell I did when I was like 20,,that worked really well,and I've all but forgotten .

So ,I book of shadows is a good idea .As I've lost stuff over the years .

I do have books full of all kinds of notations and sigils and things not usually in public domain .

I have tons of spells and rituals for karmic retribution . Lots for love and money ,but love ans money never worked for me.

Karma stuff I am sure,but we know how love magick is so ...

They've worked great for other people though .

Awesome stuff monk ! And well,you could never take Percys lyrics at face value ,and I never thought Cleopatra .It always made me think of oshun ,but I would .Cleopatra makes more sense ,in regard to Plant .That gives the lyrics an entirely new slant ...

I have to think on it it. And I love led zeppelin ,period. Plant and Page both .I just know Plant and his son .I've only met Page twice,both before I was 16 .

He stepped on me once ....long story .

My life is so weird...seriously . I don't make this stuff up .Who could think of this kind of weirdness. I'm not that creative.

I consider myself pagan. I define it as such: Celebrate the sanctity of Nature, revering the Divine in all things; the vast unknowable Spirit that runs through the Universe, both seen and unseen.

I dont do any rituals, or spells or anything like that. I dont feel comfortable with it. I just like to go outside, sit quietly and observe the wonderful gift of life that surrounds me :)

Ganesh Chathuri was quite lovely yesterday . I went early ,so it was much less crowded than last year .

The priests were a bit weirded out by my plushie Ganesh ,but hey,I like plushies .

I want a plushie Kali Ma too,but she's expensive .

I had him blessed ,and I gave him flowers and a coconut .

He loves coconut . So you bring one,and there's a special place to break them in his honour .

Food was delicious as always .Spicy !

They give you fruits and blessed flowers take home .

I gave the fruits to my bunnies . Flowers are in a huge bowl on my kitchen table .

I went to Chinatown afterwards,got some mooncakes and Vietnamese food. All in all,a good day .

I don't call it a book of shadows but I keep the small spells I devise, experiences I've had, and other insights in composition books. I prefer a modern approach.

Yes i did post personal stuff that were taken off by moderators on previous page, i understand why they did this, but i'm honest in approach in everything i post, but i need help, as i'm not against the Hermetic approach to religion, however there are evil people in all religions that value the spiritual side to religion perhaps by evil intentions, we must get beyond this:-

Hi Simbi,

The Book below i bought in Equinox Bookshop in the 1970's in Kensington, London, UK, the owner was obsessed with Aleister Crowley, and i'm slightly obsessed also, it doesn't mean that the owner believed in Aleister Crowley, as i don't, but he is a good starting point to study esoteric secret beliefs:-

http://2012forum.com/forum/download/file.php?id=3855&mode=view

Equinox Bookshop in Kensington, London, no longer exists, But Simbi can you research who owned it in the early 1970's, it is connected to your story.

Hi Simbi,

just because many have an interest in Aleister Crowley, as indeed i have, and the owner of Equinox Bookshop in the 1970's, doesn't mean there is evil intent, so i give a clue, who bought "Boleskine House" in the 1970's?

Please research, i will give more later, but leave a favourite song of yours:-

My bank account got riped off, I got the money back, but it was sure a pain to get everything changed and fixed. Really man, you can't be to careful.

There is something to be learned from Crowley, but you have to take it for what it is. He had some pretty nutty ideas. It is like everything glean the good and toss the shaft for pigs to lay on. I think Crowley came up with "Do as you will," then Doreen Valiente added "Harm none," part. (Darn you Doreen, such a kill joy. LOL)

Edit forgot to add my favorite LZ song.

Hi Simbi,

Crowley can bring up emotions, people who study him are not always in agreement, however there are a lot of good people that follow Hermetic beliefs, "All that Glitter is Gold" is code for alchemist hermetic ideas and beliefs.

Jimmy Page did own Boleskine House that once belonged to Crowley, and he owned Equinox Book Shop in Kensington, London in the early 1970's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boleskine_House

This is why if feel "Stairway to Heaven" is linked to Cleopatra.

Did you ever play it backward? I did, silly Jimmy. I think the song was just a dig a hypocritical Christians. I really don't see the link to Cleopatra, but unless I could ask him I don't know. All his stuff had strong Pagan elements in it. One fine Bard, that is for sure.

Hi Darkwind,

Yes there are lots of symbolism, and as May Queen is mentioned, there are some that feel there is connection to a poem by Crqwley called "May Queen", link below:-

http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/aleister-crowley?before=1304342098

This mentions Queen and god's daughter, and is also connected to May Day and Walpurgis Night.

Hi Simbi,

I hope you will stay in contact, i'm not against Jimmy Page!

Hi Darkwind,

I hope you will follow, i'm not against you, all this is highly complicated with World Religions, don't worry if you show stuff against, that is normal, but we really need to get on top of this, it is important to us all! I'm also worried about synchronicity, i can't give anything regarding this, it is beyond me!!!!

Please note first images of 7/7/2005 flashed around the world, as most of this was "Underground", most images featured "The London Bus" that had 13 victims, tell me i'm wrong!

http://2012forum.com...=6633&mode=view

I'll be back tomorrow!
