 May 14, '04   Prefiguration Ritual of Oak King
The regulars here will recall that it was mid-April that I put up a little note in the 'What's New' box that said 'Significant event expected in May; new article coming soon'. The article is now available and called The Lucifer Time Code, but I wasn't able to finish it until May 3. The article discussed the significance of the the month of May as it was found to have key dates/windows that could be linked to major events such as 9/11, the Iraq war, and even the 'rise of Schwarzenegger'.

Turns out, by the time Time Code was posted some of the projected future patterns were already unfolding. Here is the list of projections from the article:

  1. Major announcement concerning Mars, such as the discovery of life or present water of Mars.
  2. Major development involving or associated with 9/11 and/or Iraq.
  3. Major event involving Arnold Schwarzenegger and/or other Horus ('Antichristic') figures.
  4. Major event that has to do with the fall/exit of one or more of the 'Babylon leaders' (which include figures such as, and those closely associated with, Bush/Cheney, Blair, Sharon, and particularly the Pope).
  5. Some kind of nuclear event.

It was near the end of April (4/28) that the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal first erupted as CBS (in '60 Minutes II') aired disturbing photos of US military officers humiliating the prisoners. The scandal grew in intensity during the following days, to the point that Bush was forced to appear on two Arab TV programs and try to apologize (May 5). And with loud calls for his resignation in the background, US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld testified on May 7 before the Senate and House Armed Services Committees on the abuse issue. The scandal became so big that it has even been compared to 9/11 in terms of the level of damage done to the US. It is still quite likely that Rumsfeld will be forced to step down this month.

So the situation is so far conforming to Projection B and D. The only catch is that the 'B' event (the abuse scandal) was already underway when the Time Code article was posted. This is also the case for Projection C involving Schwarzenegger.

Before going into the Arnold thing, let me discuss some new findings that can refine our perspective on the timing issue. Because I was in a great hurry, I missed some key information that could have helped me establish a more effective context.

First, May happens to be the traditional Mary's month in many cultures. It's associated with an old tradition called Tricesimum, or 'Thirty Day Devotion to Mary', originally held from August 15 to September 14 (closely overlapping the period of the Athens Olympic Games this summer). Because of the central role the Venus-Isis-Mary (or Venus-Sirius) complex plays in the 'Lucifer Time Code', it is very fitting that this particular month should be dedicated to Mary (= Isis). No wonder I was already moving in this direction as I commented in the previous update on May 11: '...perhaps it's really the entire month of May...'

So this begins to explain why there appeared to be no overwhelming emphasis placed on the ~May 8 window with a high-impact event. The May-timing issue is turning out of be more of a 'month' thing rather than a 'day' thing. So it actually makes more sense to emphasize the beginning of May, for instance, just as the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal did... as did Schwarzenegger - by visiting Israel.

Over the weekend of May 1-2, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger made his first foreign trip since taking office. As reported in the news:

Schwarzenegger agreed more than a year ago to attend the groundbreaking for the $200 million museum, a project of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center. Designed by architect Frank Gehry, it will be called the Center for Human Dignity-Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem.

Schwarzenegger, who has depicted Nazi atrocities as the darkest chapter in Jewish history, will be in Israel for about 24 hours to attend the ceremony -- and scout for business opportunities for California's ailing economy.

The governor also plans to meet with government leaders, including Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. [...] The museum, expected to be completed in 2007, is intended to promote unity and respect among Jews and with people of all faiths.

Arnie in Israel - so what? Well, while seemingly not very important, this event appears to have been an important 'ritual' set up for him - preparing the way for his near-future role as a messianic/'antichristic' figure - not unlike Bush but with more charisma and more serious consequences for the fate of the US... The target date for the completion of the museum, 2007, may be hinting at the timetable 'they' are working with... i.e. when Arnie is to become the (final) President of the United States. (Normally 2008 would be the election year, but we shouldn't expect any normalcy in the coming years.)

The ritualistic aspect of Arnold's Israel visit begins to emerge when seen in the light of his symbolic identity - the 'Oak King'. As I noted in The Lucifer Time Code:

...Schwarzenegger entering politics on August 6 [2003]. ...Aug. 6 is or represents the actual day on which Sirius' heliacal rising occurs in our epoch. Through Sirius, June 21, Sept. 11, and Aug. 6 are but different expressions of the same archetypal date!

This calendrical link is reinforced by one of Schwarzenegger's nicknames being 'The Oak'. In pagan tradition, the 'Oak King' is associated with midsummer which is also reflected in the fact that the Christian version of the Oak King, John the Baptist, has his feast day on June 24, intended to mark the summer solstice (~June 21).

In pagan tradition, the reign of the Oak King begins on winter solstice and ends on summer solstice. The other half of the year is ruled by the 'Holly King'. (The Oak-Holly duality has a very interesting parallel to the Arnie-Bush duality.) It turns out that the peak of the Oak King's strength is said to come at 'Beltane' or May Day, which is May 1... the very day Schwarzenegger the 'Oak King' went to Israel! Beltane is also when the Holly King - or 'Shrub/Bush King' - is in its weakest state... perfectly reflected by the potentially deadly political mess Bush now finds himself in.

In the Time Code article I emphasized that the 'rise of Schwarzenegger/Oak King' last year on August 6 was designed to coincide with the heliacal/dawn rising of Sirius and/or the alignment of the historical 'Paris axis' (Champs Elysees) with the angle of the sunset (which also matches the angle of the rising point of Sirius). And based on this I pinpointed the time around May 8 as a key period for Arnie and associated 'antichristic' themes because ~May 8 is another day that produces the same street-sunset alignment in Paris. It was something of an anti-8/6 point (i.e. the 'reversal/opposition' theme). It is the date 'May 1', however, that carries the same but greater symbolic significance.

In addition to the Oak-King peak connection, May 1/May Day/Beltane represents the 'opposite' of New Year, as we learn:

There are four great festivals of the Pagan Celtic year and the modern Witch's calendar, as well. The two greatest of these are Halloween (the beginning of winter) and May Day (the beginning of summer). Being opposite each other on the wheel of the year, they separate the year into halves. Halloween (also called Samhain) is the Celtic New Year...

What this means is that May 1 symbolically signifies the opposite point of August 6 in that the latter, viewed as the date of Sirius heliacal rising, would mark the New Year's Day as per ancient Egyptian tradition! So, while the 'Paris axis' Solar/Sirian alignment gives us ~May 8 as the 'anti-8/6' date, the combination of ancient Egyptian and Celtic traditions makes May 1 a more effective 'anti-8/6' day - and it was on that very day (May 1/2) that Schwarzenegger paid a visit to the biblical land of Israel.

The Lucifer/Venus theme that figures prominently in the 'Time Code' is also present here since the term 'Beltane' (= May Day/May 1) means 'Bel-fire', or 'the fire of Bel' (the Celtic god of light). Bel is the Celtic Lucifer, the 'light bearer'.

Lucifer/Bel also corresponds to Prometheus, the Greek god who gave fire to mankind. (Beltane is considered the 'day of fire'.) This then leads to the following... creepy connections.

The event that shocked people around the world, associated with the other already-unfolding shocking development, the prisoner abuse scandal, was the release of a video on the internet (May 11) showing the beheading of a 26-year old American named Nick Berg in Iraq . He owned a communication tower maintenance company called Prometheus Methods Tower Service Inc. So 'Prometheus' pops up here again. Now add this to the coincidence: the Beltane/May Day festival originally involved animal and even human sacrifices. We learn:

Supposedly, animal sacrifices would be made each Beltane to ensure the fertility of their crops, however, every five years the Highland Celts would sacrifice humans, the numbers being made up of convicted criminals and prisoners of war.

Berg was a 'prisoner of war' indeed... So, this does smell like a 'Beltane ritual' that interacts with Schwarzenneger's Oak King ritual on Beltane/May Day.

The 'Tower' part of Berg's job/company is also suspiciously relevant. Mary Magdalene, as a form of Venus-Isis/Sirius-Lucifer, is very much part of the Time Code themes underlying this period of May and beyond. And the name 'Magdalene' can denote... 'tower'. In particular it is relatable to the Tower of Babel as explained in the article.

The Babel tower in the Bible represents mankind working as one using one language. God, seeing this, went down to earth and confused man's language - as a result they could no longer communicate well with each other. So the Tower of Babel has much to do with the idea of 'communication', just as Nick Berg's job specifically involved communication towers.

Furthermore, the idea of decapitation is something very much attached to John the Baptist (this is how his life ended). And as mentioned earlier John is often considered the Christian version of the Oak King (= Arnie) and his feast day (June 24) marks/represents the summer solstice which in early ancient Egyptian times coincided with Sirius' heliacal rising and thus also with New Year's Day. In other words, John - and through him Berg - is very much linked to the 'antichristic' Aug. 6 date and conceptually an 'opposite' of Beltane/May Day!

The date of the gruesome video's posting,  May 11, is also suggestive in that there are exactly 322 days from the last John the Baptist day (June 24, '03) to May 11, '04. You may recall that '322' is the numerical signature of Skull and Bones, the Yale secret society to which both Bush and John Kerry belong. The 'Shock & Awe' event of 2003 - i.e. the US air assault on Iraq - began on March 22/23 (i.e. 3/22 => '322'). And we had this year's 'Shock & Awe', i.e. the decapitation video, also coming with the signature number...

Next, we find that the Beltane/May Day festival traditionally involved the virgin goddess:

Many communities elected a virgin as their "May Queen" to lead marches or songs. To the Celts, she represented the virgin goddess on the eve of her transition from Maiden to Mother.

It turns out the constellation of Virgo, associated with the Mary-Venus-Isis goddess complex, has been considered a headless constellation (Star Names, p.462).

Finally, the horrific 'Beltane ritual' of Nick Berg may have been an 'omen' for Donald Rumsfeld, the head of the Pentagon (Defense Department). In my May 6 update I wrote:

What makes this really intriguing is that Rumsfeld heads the Pentagon. As I made clear in the article, the 'time code' has much to do with Venus and Sirius - both traditionally signified by the 5-poitned star symbol, or pentagram. Needless to say, geometrically the pentagon is just another expression of the pentagram.

So at this point we can't help but anticipate the exit of the Defense/Pentagon Secretary...

In other words, the Berg video, the month of May, and the Department of Defense are all closely associated with the Mary-Venus-Isis/Sirius goddess complex. The head of Nick Berg has been cut off (boy... I really don't like talking about this); so, will this be the case for the 'head' of the Pentagon as well?  I view this symbolism as suggestive of the exit of Rumsfeld in the near future (either stepping down and getting fired).

Now, getting back to Schwarzenegger's trip, let's address the question of 'why Israel?' First, we can see that for a 'messianic' figure it would be quite natural to go there... to get 'baptized' (or whatever). Note that the Oak King is 'born' on the winter solstice/Yule, historically associated with Christmas, thus also with the birth of Jesus. In other words, the Oak King is an alter ego of the 'Messiah'. And the acting Oak King, Arnie, just went 'back' to the Holy Land...

But more interestingly, the name 'Israel' comes from a biblical figure who was originally called Jacob. He is associated with something akin to the Tower of Babel (Babylon/'gate of god') or 'stargate', as we read in Genesis:

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! This is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. (28:16-17)

The line 'How dreadful is this place!' is thought to be connected to Rennes-le-Chateau in south France where, at its church's entrance, the visitor would encounter a strange Latin inscription that reads 'TERRIBILIS EST LOCUS ISTE' ('This place is terrible'). Thanks to the great success of The Da Vinci Code, now many people recognize that Rennes-le-Chateau is inseparable from the underground tradition of Mary Magdalene (= 'tower'). Not surprisingly, the subsequent Genesis passages mentions 'pillar':

And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Beth-el...  And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house... (28:18-19, 22)

This 'pillar' is easily interchangeable with the Tower of Babel in Babylon, the 'gate of god'. This is a 'stargate' theme. Isn't it intriguing, then, that Schwarzenegger's most popular movie character, the Terminator, is a cyborg that comes from the future through a 'stargate' machine?

This 'stargate' is also traditionally called 'Jacob's ladder', which has been identified with the Milky Way. Those who have read The Lucifer Time Code will recall that the significance accorded to the month of May this year has much to do with celestial configurations directly involving the Milky Way [and its 'stargate' points]!

Jacob's 'stargate' pillar-stone is also associated with the 'Stone of Destiny' which is related to Grail/Arthurian tradition. This reminds us of the fact that Arnold has a shadowy Enron connection (the corrupt energy company that imploded in 2001-2) and 'Enron' spelt backwards is 'Norne', the name of the three goddesses of fate (or destiny) in Norse mythology as discussed before.

Here is one of Nostradamus' quatrains often associated with the 'Antichrist' (I-76) that specifically mentions 'destiny' and alludes to Norne:

The man will be called by a barbaric name
that three sisters will receive from destiny.
He will speak then to a great people in words and deeds,
more than any other man will have fame and renown.

Schwarzenegger indeed has the 'barbaric' epithet, 'Terminator', but before he was the Terminator he was literally Conan the Barbarian!

So, all combined, the symbolism of Arnold's 'presidential' trip to Israel (= Jacob) over the Beltane/May-Day weekend is quite telling and meaningful.

Peak Oil is arriving. Chaos will ensue. And Arnold Schwarzenegger will be right there to assume leadership and forcefully maintain order even as the Titanic sinks into the abyss. A scenario that is becoming less and less improbable...

Okay, one more thing. This week saw a very unusual development of all the major US cable news networks (CNN, MSNBC, FOX) carrying a remarkable story involving UFOs - how they were witnessed and acknowledged by the Mexican military - in a quite serious manner. I see this as a precursor to the coming announcement of the 'discovery' of life on Mars - i.e. my Projection 'A' for May (and beyond).

The way I see it, those 'UFOs' are probably 'ours', as in non-extraterrestrial (something out of very deep military-industrial black projects). I can actually detect a parallel between the Nick Berg video and this UFO news (both came out just about at the same time). The 'shock & awe' video, on a practically level, had the very convenient function of softening the impact of the Iraq prisoner abuse photos. (Who benefited the most from the public display of extreme savagery?) Rumsfeld is certainly feeling less pressure at this time, and Cheney is happy that Rumsfeld still has his job since without him at the top of the Pentagon the neoconservative network that Cheney uses to run his 'shadow government' would quickly collapse.

By showing the extreme, people's threshold of tolerance is easily changed. So, by implying in the mainstream news, at least temporarily, that there may really be ETs visiting this planet in flying saucers, the general public's 'tolerance level' gets adjusted and thereby becoming ready mentally for the 'life on Mars' announcement that may be in the works now.

The fact that the ESA guys (Europe) are apparently getting ready to make such an announcement in July or September this year tells me that NASA/US may now have a motive to make its own 'life on Mars' announcement' before them. Chances are NASA already has more than enough evidence. So why let the Europeans steal the limelight? The limelight outweighs secrecy at this point, I would think.

It will be interesting to see how/if these scenarios will unfold in the coming weeks.

 May 11, '04   Time of Reversal
Let me quickly make additional comments on the Iraqi abuse scandal in the context of the 'time code'. So far, things are moving along pretty much as expected in terms of how the story is still going strong, assisted by the newly revealed existence of more photographic evidence, along with continuing calls for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. But I must say I did find it surprising that Rumsfeld did not make his exit during the weekend which I considered very possible based on reasons stated in my previous entry.

So it is now necessary to step back a little and reanalyze the timing issue. As far as the general 'May window' goes, the 'opposition force' discussed in the 'Time Code' article does appear to be manifesting itself in a major way at this point. On this, I think Mark, an Etemenanki reader, expressed it nicely:

... I see this period in early-mid May as the "anti-9-11", in that the karma of our response to that "attack"; the PNAC plan to invade and occupy the Mid-east oil fields, is coming to fruition. We see this especially in the torture scandal and the calls for Rumsfeld's resignation. The dark side of Amerikan power is finally seeing the light of day. Since the official story of 9-11 is one of deception, recent events, alluded to in the celestial events you bring our attention to, the counterpoint will be one of facing the consequences or reaping the fruits of that deception. We can only hope that this can occur without the "nuclear" connection you also describe.

As for the more specific timing issue involving the window of/around May 8, I'm not yet sure how to interpret that, and there is no need to rush it. Calendrically, it can be transposed to become May 21, which is May 8 Julian - still many days ahead. You can recall that the beginning of the Iraq war was transposed this way, for example. In terms of symbology, around May 8 was a key window marked by an 'anti-9/11' celestial configuration. I didn't quite go into this in The Lucifer Time Code, but when focused solely on the positioning of the stars/planets, it is actually the few days preceding May 8 that carried more significance. For example, Mars crossed the galactic equator on May 6 and it subsequently reached the summer-solstice, anti-9/11 ('stargate') point on May 7. And as I briefly alluded to in the article, my Starry Night Pro program shows the key sunset alignment of the 'Paris axis' (Champs-Elysees) took place on May 5 or so, instead of the traditional May 8 date. (May 5 is also 225 days - 225 being the important 'Venus number' - from the 2003 autumn equinox, which is one of our Mars/Horus Days.)

As we look back, we see that Bush went on two Arab TV programs to semi-apologize for the US abuse of Iraqi prisoners on May 5. The next day he finally used the word 'sorry' perhaps for the first time in his presidency. It was then followed by another major and surprising apology, this time from Rumsfeld, as he testified before the Senate and House Armed Services Committees to address the same issue on May 7.

Some have suggested that the latest appalling scandal is comparable to, or even worse than, 9/11 in its impact. Only this time, it was not some physical buildings that was destroyed, but the tower of US credibility (or what was left of it) in the eyes of the rest of the world. So it could indeed be said that this recent development represents the ultimate 'anti-9/11' situation, as the superpower-nation that had all the support it wanted from the rest of the world after 9/11 did the unthinkable and has now finally lost all that and much more. It takes a development of this magnitude for the current US leadership to bring themselves to make public apologies as they did in early May. And it's about to get worse...

Though long anticipated (projected even before 9/11), it's still pretty sad to see the hard fall of the US before our eyes. Day by day it is becoming increasingly apparent that this thing is going down.

There is another symbolically significant (and broader) 'window' coming up later this month (May 19-25) so it would be interesting to see how this theme will evolve there. But even before that we'll have Venus going retrograde around May 15. Given the importance of Venus in this period, this may be relevant as well. So... perhaps it's really the entire month of May (if not the entire year!). And we'll of course have the very special Transit of Venus coming up on June 8...

I still have some more to say regarding the issue of Rumsfeld's future but I'll save that for my next post which should come quickly. For now I'll just say I still consider it quite likely that he will go... (a minority opinion at this point) but potentially with a very intriguing twist.

Aside from the political stuff, there are some very interesting developments on the space/Mars front which I will be discussing soon. Remember that there appears to be an underlying symbolic parallel between developments related to Iraq/9-11 and Mars...

 May 06, '04   Rumsfeld & the 'Time Code'
It appears we may be fast approaching one of those 'Etemenanki moments' as we witness the fast development that seems to lead to the exit of the Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, the US war chief. The big issue here is the timing. In my new article The Lucifer Time Code (Part 1), I highlighted the significance of the month of May, particularly around May 8 and May 20-5. And based on the underlying symbolic pattern I presented in the article some potential future-event projections that included the following:
  • Major development involving or associated with 9/11 and/or Iraq.
  • Major event that has to do with the fall/exit of one or more of the 'Babylon leaders' (which include figures such as, and those closely associated with, Bush/Cheney, Blair, Sharon, and particularly the Pope).

The fall of Rumsfeld who leads the US war effort in Iraq would certainly fit those projections nicely. What makes this really intriguing is that Rumsfeld heads the Pentagon. As I made clear in the article, the 'time code' has much to do with Venus and Sirius - both traditionally signified by the 5-poitned star symbol, or pentagram. Needless to say, geometrically the pentagon is just another expression of the pentagram.

So at this point we can't help but anticipate the exit of the Defense/Pentagon Secretary, as early as on/around May 8. The way things are moving, this has to be consider a very real possibility.

If the Iraq prisoner abuse is a systemic problem, as it likely is, then it would mean that this story won't go away anytime soon as new photos and evidence will keep popping up to keep it in the news cycles. The Bush administration obviously wants the scandal to blow over as soon as possible before it does irreversible damage. So they have a big decision to make soon.

Rumsfeld is scheduled to be grilled in a public congressional hearing Friday (tomorrow). If he doesn't do well there - which he can't if he doesn't have a really remarkable excuse - then the increasing calls for his resignation will likely continue and even get louder over the weekend and into next week - i.e. the news of this embarrassing scandal will go on in the media.

The risk for the White House here is that, while the scandal may begin to quiet down, if it doesn't and Rumsfeld is forced to step down next week, on a weekday, this will be a huge, embarrassing development for them. If it's unavoidable, this White House prefers to let something like this unfold at the end of the week when many people stop following the news. (By the beginning of the next week, the news would already be 'old'.) This is a well-established pattern already.

So they must now make a calculated political move. They need to decide whether to bet on the scandal fading out in the coming days or to get done with it this Friday/Saturday by forcing Rumsfeld to 'quietly' step down... And of course, Friday is May 7, and Saturday is May 8.

So this is something we should watch carefully in the context of the 'Time Code'. Also, even if not May 7/8, another key time window, May 20-25, is coming up shortly (also a weekend period) to potentially interact with the current development. (And we can always expect more twists to emerge...)

Let's see how Rumsfeld's hearing goes tomorrow. Stay tuned...

 May 03, '04   'The Lucifer Time Code'
It took long enough but I sort of 'finished' the new article, The Lucifer Time Code. It's actually still incomplete at this point so I guess this is 'Part 1' of the series... [Update: The regulars here will notice that the article is a mixture of old and new information. This is partly because I'm still trying to put all the key information originally presented in this column section since last year into more readable formats. This way everyone here, both regular and new readers, would be on the same page quickly.]
