Has anyone in this thread overlaid a graphic of the EM spectrum onto the tree of life? Been wondering how it might look, or if it would make something click.
At the base of the Milky Way we find Pabilsag, the Babylonian prototype of our Sagittarius, whose name means the ‘Fore-Father’ or ‘Chief Ancestor’.
His function within the stellar calendar was to drive discarnate souls from the environs of the earth up into the heavens. In this role he bears many similarities to the god of the wild hunt found in western folklore.
Concerning Pabilsag’s constellation two factors immediately stand out as highly significant. Firstly, his star rises in the ninth month of the year, which is the final month of the symbolic calendar imprinted upon the stars. This is the time of year that the sun descends to its lowest ebb at the winter solstice and the gates to the underworld are opened symbolising the transition between death and new life.
Secondly, Pabilsag is located directly within the course of the Milky Way where it abruptly rises from the southern regions close to the horizon into the higher reaches of the heavens. Judging by the otherconstellations found in this part of the sky, such as the Eagle and the Panther, this section of the Milky Way arguably represents the souls of the dead on their way to the afterlife.
The Eagle continues the same vein of symbolism; its mythic function is two-fold. In general terms, it acts as a guide to the dead, transporting the Dead Man to the underworld just as the Greek Harpies were sometimes thought to do.
Babylonian star-lore reveals that his immediate family were also represented among the stars – his wife, the healing goddess commonly called Ninisina or Gula, has her celestial station in the She-Goat, and their son Damu, ‘the child’, who is annually reborn after midwinter is represented among the stars in the form of the Swine-star.
Pabilsag’s wife has the dog as her divine symbol, which may go some way to explain why he has a dog’s head springing from his shoulders.

I'm a little surprised nobody wanted to talk about "dark night of the soul" and my oblique reference to "Kundalini juice".

Sagittarius famously points its arrow at the heart of Scorpius, represented by the reddish star Antares, as the two constellations race around the sky. Following the direct line formed by Delta Sagittarii (δ Sgr) and Gamma Sagittarii (γ Sgr) leads nearly directly to Antares.
