Well, what an absolutely fascinating thread. Its been a pleasure to read. Thank you gents.


For most good esoteric freemasons, the use of Sirius and Alnilam is done in the manner written by others here, however Sirius has duality and can be used in war etc. It isn't only masons that use these stars, so finding who are the good the bad and the ugly can be difficult.

I will give an example of a bad guy who wanted to blow up London with Bombs, and aligned Sirius to the rising Sun, if he had succeeded, there wouldn't have been anyone else to fight him in Europe, anyone for black uniforms, ha ha?

Hi Canadian Mason,
It is usually only Black Magicians that align Sirius in the reverse form, therefore don't worry if i look at Knights of Columbus, who had a charter in New Haven, Connecticut on March 29th 1882:-

Ancient Greek day marker was used on 29th March thus being Sun set on 28th March, astronomy picture below shows the Sun setting

So as the Sun set, Sirius was culminating, at Due South astronomy graph at bottom of thread section.

Louis de Wohl was an interesting character in World War Two who was also a member of Catholic Knights

Yes that's what I mean.

No, of course not, most fraternal Masonry is speculative, but notice it draws some lessons from the operative.

"Temper" your Passion
"square and compass"

An online quote says;
"Operative and speculative Masonry
In Freemasonry we discuss two kinds of masonry Operative and Speculative. By definition the term Operative means "functioning; having effect". Operative masons were those who actually worked with stone. ... Speculative by definition means "engaged in, expressing, or based on conjecture rather than knowledge."

All I'm saying is that lessons of each form can be utilized for self improvement.

We wouldn't have speculative masonry if operative didn't exist first right. Chicken and the egg, maybe?


Oh, I never thought of it that way. Thanks, Brother! Totally makes sense now.

Astronomer has truly blessed this thread with his stellar knowledge and research. I couldn't have asked for better.

I am still trying to wrap my brain around it all.

I know I can be a pain but, would you please, once again repeat how we Masons "use" Sirius and Alnilam?

Thanks.

Hi CanadianMason,
In symbolism esoteric freemasons look at Sirius as where souls go after death for a vacation. It is a star that in myths is very powerful and god-like. It is believed by those that don't use Sirius for self-development that it can be used as a burst of energy to help gain advantage in evil acts on Earth, but only if Sirius is aligned at location.

This is achieved by the most ancient astrology being Parans or Paranatellonta, aligning by visual means as in astronomy, link below:-
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...
There are four auspicious directions, Due East or Due West at location, which is the horizon. Due South is the highest point that a star can culminate, as they rise in the East and set in the West, however in the Southern Hemisphere, stars culminate at Due North. In our Northern Hemisphere,(Britain, Canada etc.), Due North is the Nadir.
There are 3 ways that a day can be divided, modern midnight, Egyptian day marker, being Sunrise, Greek day marker being Sun set of previous day.

This means Sirius can align at location 12 days out of a year within one degree= 3x4=12 days
This means the same for Alnilam which can also align 12 days a year at any location= 24 days out of 365 days of a year.
In truth it doesn't work like that for at least one day there will be a double up, Alnilam my be on Nadir as the Sun is setting, Sirius may be culminating while the Sun is rising. Some locations lose an alignment at midnight during Summer Time. Mostly these two stars can be aligned by chance 22 times out of 365 days.

If for the individual horoscope, Sirius has the meaning below

Thank you Astronomer. I did read everything you recommended, and more. It appears that, as with all things Masonic, there are multiple opinions about the Sirius connection. One is that it is the Blazing Star in our Lodges! In Craft Masonry, where the first three degrees are taught, the Blazing Star


is a symbol of Divine Providence...the symbol of Deity which represents: Omnipresence (the fact that the Creator is always present in our lives) Omniscience (the fact that the Creator both sees and knows everything about us, including our thoughts and the secrets of our hearts) ...And throughout history, the Masonic Blazing Star is an ancient emblem of faith which shines for each of us, no matter which specific religion we embrace.


link

It has further significance in the higher degrees such as in the Scottish Rite. link It also has meanings to Rosicrucians, Gnostics and Theosophists!

I am not a member of any of those four other groups, so I have no direct knowledge of their different teachings or how they connect - if they do.

As for Sirius being the place where we go after death, there was one thing a found that said Sirius is the place of souls or something to that effect. It wasn't from a Masonic source but; also, there is Pike who said there is a spiritual significance to Sirius. So, I won't deny that you are probably correct to a certain degree. It's just that there isn't any official teaching that Masons have to adhere to in this case. Many have speculated on its significance and nobody has the final word on the matter.

I'm more inclined to accept it as a symbol of deity but I also happen to personally believe aliens might have visited the earth from there way back in history.

Hi Canadian Mason,
I agree there are many interpretations for intentional use of Sirius, which is sad as we can't get to the truth!
Esoteric Freemasons often mention the star of the East or Bethlehem, but what date do we use, and did others step in to give us an intentional date of birth of Jesus and Three Wise Men?

Early Christian Church Think of Epiphany for the Three Wise Men, but be careful, we don't know when Christ was born, or died!!!

seetheworld.travelforkids.com...

I find it very suspicious that the Jews use sunset previous to date as start of the day, thus in Bethlehem sunset on 5th January during period Sun is setting as Sirius is rising in Bethlehem, year date doesn't matter as this will happen for several centuries on date at location.

As an astronomer on a camel i could have followed this alignment from Persia, but i would have to know date of birth of Christ before i set out, so says a disabled guy who isn't one of the Wise Men! Astronomy graph below:-

Hi Canadian Mason,
We have to be careful in not establishing blame to President Truman in establishing the C.I.A, who was a 33 degree Freemason, how they behaved afterwards isn't due to Truman.
Langley wasn't used as H.Q. until 1960's, i will deal with this later:-
en.wikipedia.org...
In fact in origin the C.I.A. operated in Washington DC at the beginning on September 18th 1947, link below:-

On this day in Washington DC on 18th September 1947, the Sun rose at 06:55AM, as shown on astronomy graph below:

Ancient Egyptian day marker used for 18th September 1947 in Washington DC, for as the Sun rose, Alnilam, center star of Belt of Orion and Osiris star clicked into place within one degree of culminating, the plots thickens in the history of the C.I.A. after this!

What I find funny is that these Wise Men got lost and had to stop for directions, lol!

I'm not a Christian. I deny the historicity of Jesus.

The story of the Three Kings following a Bright Star to where Jesus was born is probably based on astrological myths and stories.

For example: link

Excerpt:



"Osiris's coming was announced by Three Wise Men: the three stars Mintaka, Anilam, and Alnitak in the belt of Orion, which point directly to Osiris's star in the east, Sirius (Sothis), significator of his birth." Barbara Walker, The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets (749)


Bolding mine.

This is an opening quote used by the author of the article at the link above. The author then goes on to make a good case.

Ha! Would you look at that?! Truman signed the Act aboard his POTUS aircraft, nicknamed the 'Sacred Cow'!

The Act came into effect on 09.18.1947 which included the creation of the C__A.

From your data above it almost seems like it was planned that way by some astrologer-insider participating in writing the Act so that everything would line-up with Sirius!

Maybe the original intent was to harness the good energy from the star in creating this intelligence service. The purpose of the C__A was to protect the American citizens, right?

When did it start to go rogue - as I've heard some people claim it did. I'm not saying it is rogue or not. I don't know.

Anyway, carry on. Very intriguing stuff, Astronomer!

Just found some additional info by the same author previously mentioned above (D.M. Murdock / Acharya) regarding the Three Kings being based in Christian astromythology/astrotheology. Very cool! (To me it is, anyway....)

Hi Canadianmason.
You are becoming very good in interpreting Hermetic Philosophy, and finding different duality for Sirius and Alnilam.
The good guys use different interpretation to the bad guys. It is called Dualistic Cosmology, link below:-
en.wikipedia.org...
For some Sirius is Janitor, Lethaeus, the keeper of hell, so in mythology it is down to the ritual put forward by the operator, whether it is for good purposes or bad.
www.skyscript.co.uk...
lightparty.com...
So to spread some humour before i freak you out, you need to do a hermetic Egyptian sand dance, like link below, Ha Ha:-

Hi Canadianmason,
You are getting so good, i'll give you homework ha ha!
On earlier pages i wrote about Phi, Golden Ratio and Pentagons that relate to belief in god-like structures, notice the fives regarding "The Pentagon" on link below:-
en.wikipedia.org...
The Ground Breaking Ceremony was on 11th September 1941....what has this date to do with THOUT OR THOTH?
The C.I.A. were involved In over-throwing Salvador Allende, who had been elected president by democracy, i will have something to say about the date of coup later, Allende although socialist was a good freemason, and tried to do his best for the people of Chile:-
en.wikipedia.org...
Operation Condor is an interesting read:-
en.wikipedia.org...
More about the Allende Coup below:-
www.history.com...
I will add star alignment later.

There isn't anything evil about using 11th September 1941 for the Ground Breaking Ceremony of the Pentagon, when Franklin D. Roosevelt was President, and a 32nd degree freemason.
en.wikipedia.org...
The Shape of the Pentagon is very likely inspired by Phi and Golden Ratio.
It may also have been inspired by President Roosevelt's wife Eleanor Roosevelt, who was a member of "The Order of the Eastern_Star", the motif is similar and very Phi oriented.
Please scroll down link to see Eleanor Roosevelt was a member:-

The emblem of Eastern Star is featured below:-

Hi CanadianMason,
I am busy today with relatives coming over, don't forget to find connection for "THOUT" to 11th September, i will catch you tomorrow!

Hi CanadianMason,
You may feel foolish in investigating beliefs that may or not be true, at times we may agree to dis-agree, but don't think i will not be there for you if any try to make you look an idiot!
The Science community follow the same, The Science Society is respected, but we know why the reports are entitled on ISIS and OSIRIS:-
