Astro-theology and Great Cycles of Time

In 1894 the Indian astronomer, Sri Yukteswar, wrote that the cause of the precession of the equinox was the result of our sun’s orbit around another star. He estimated the orbit period at 24,000 years. This long cycle is the same concept as Plato’s Great Year, as well as the Maya Long Count calendar.

The deeper occult (hidden) meaning of the pre-Christian cross, as well as its 4 cardinal points, are of great importance in esoteric astrology and astro-theology. This understanding is the essence behind the symbol most famously referred to as the “Swastika” in Sanskrit (卐),  the symbol and its meaning pre-dates written Sanskrit itself.

Astro-theology is the study of the astronomical influence on religion. The ancient Greeks associated the Swastika with the sun god Apollo, exemplifying the symbol’s historic and universal use as a solar emblem.

You remember only one deluge, though there have been many…

You and your fellow citizens are descended from the few survivors that remained, but you know nothing about it because so many succeeding generations left no record in writing. The change in the rising and setting of the sun and the other heavenly bodies, how in those times they used to set in the quarter where they now rise, and used to rise where they now set…

Of all the changes which take place in the heavens this reversal is the greatest and most complete ..There is at that time great destruction of animals in general, and only a small part of the human race survives.” – Critias by Plato 360 B.C.E

  1. fantastic! the zeigeist movie gets into this a bit & the related idea that Christ never existed, he was just a re-working of a legend. That the son of God refers to the sun in the sky. It’s pretty interesting stuff. Thnx for reminding me about it.
