The Yellow Book
Prana is related with the mind. The mind is the vehicle of willpower. Willpower must obey the Great Soul of the Word.
Our internal vehicles must be controlled by Pranayama. Prana is life.
The right nasal cavity (nostril) is solar. The left nasal cavity is lunar. The two witnesses of the Book of Revelation are related to the nasal cavities. The two witnesses are a pair of nervous cords. The testicles (or ovaries in women) are united with the nasal cavities through these two nervous cords. We can say that the two cords begin in the testicles (or ovaries).
The two testicles are the two oceans of Life. Moses found his Master between the two oceans.
In this chapter, we have taught Egyptian Pranayama for the devotees of the occidental world.
Those who want to awaken their Kundalini must persevere in Pranayama and sexual magic daily throughout their entire life.
The room for the practice of Pranayama must not be humid, poorly ventilated, or unclean. The room should be pure, clean and neat. Pranayama can be practiced in the country, in the mountains, and on the shores of lakes, rivers and seas.
With Pranayama, we transmute the sexual energy into Christic energy. With Pranayama and sexual magic we awaken the Kundalini and the chakras completely.
Pranayama is a system of sexual transmutation for single persons.
"The fires of the spinal medulla are Jehovistic; the fires of the heart are Christic and the fires of the head (between the eyebrows) spark the terribly divine rays of the Father. Essentially, these three types of energy are transmuted semen." - from The Yellow Book

(quoted above post about the Sistrum images in Egyptian art)
It's common in egyptian goddess imagery, and besides being a musical instrument, I read somewhere that it was a symbol of virginity. I don't know if there's any evidence to back that claim up. However the shape is said to be based on that of the goddess Hathor, it's also a female symbol called "pearly gate" shaped like a horseshoe with the opening downward (like omega symbol). The bars across the opening would symbolize the unbroken hymen of a virgin. And the Sistrum was replaced by the tamborine which has skin pulled over a open cirlce with brass chimes around the edge. The skin covered opening may be a continuation of this musical instruments symbolic virginity.
The sistrum was played by women in Egyptian temples. This sistrum, made in Rome, is decorated with many amuletic images. The cat represents the feline goddess Bastet, and the goose head finals on the tines represent the god Amun.
Roman Period, from Rome, Bronze, RC 1765
"the egyptians, associated Sirius, the heart of the Great Dog or Hawk, with Osiris, Isis, horus and the whole panthenon of the gods, and the star was referred to as the to as 'the Archer,' signifying the divine heart and its love-light theat creates all things."

The Major Mysteries
..."By means of these studies and exercises, any human can attain the degree of a Christ.
"Women can attain the degree of Virgin; i.e. Litelantes is a powerful Virgin of the Law;
the eleven thousand Inca Virgins are divine and ineffable; the Virgin of the Sea, who was Mary, the mother of Jesus, is the Immaculate Conception, because she directs immaculate conceptions; the Virgin of the Stars, etc. These are different female adepts who attained perfection, who attained Nirvana (first mountain).
"When a Virgin of Nirvana wants to incarnate her “I Am,” she must then renounce Nirvana and incarnate preferably in the body of a male, i.e. the Virgin of the Sea has now incarnated in a male body in Egypt in order to elevate herself to the degree of a Christ."
- The Major Mysteries by Samael Aun Weor
*Samael later corrected this when he encountered Christified female masters such as Joan of Arc. A woman can acheive the same heights as a man. It so happens that many masters when reaching certain levels of initiation choose to take a male body in order to take advantage of certain psychological benefits related to the work they must perform. But it is not required to be male.*
"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.” (Revelation 20: 1).
"I received commands from the Lords of Karma in order to lock Javhe and all of the black magicians within the abyss."....
"Javhe has a very grave Karma, since he was the secret perpetrator of the crucifixion of Christ, and he is also directly responsible for the failure of human evolution on the Earth. He has to irremediably pay these old debts, because no one can mock the law with impunity.
"The Lords of Karma delivered to me a heavy cross covered with spikes in order to crucify Javhe on it, with his head downwards and his feet upwards. Since he crucified the Christ now Karma has entered into action...."
"The Lords of Karma established a tribunal within the Abyss. Power was granted to me in order to judge these black magicians and also to execute their punishment"...
- Samael Aun Weor from "The Revolution of Beelzebub"
"The Great Judge Litelantes represents the Law of Karma; the Judge Litelantes punishes anybody who dares to adulterate the work of Samael Aun Weor, who, by mercy, gave the doctrine onto humanity because the pity of the Law of Karma permitted it.
"Samael himself knew that no one can possess the copyrights of a Universal Knowledge, but there are Laws and the laws are accomplished by those who are awakened; and they are Anubis and the 42 judges of karma. This is why Litelantes, one of 42, is watching in the internal worlds the accomplishment of the law; because the Master Litelantes was an eyewitness of the entire process of Samael Aun Weor.
"Therefore, whoever does something improper with the writings of Samael Aun Weor (including our publications), will have to face Litelantes and all the Judges of Law of Karma"...

The age of Aquarius will begin.
What is Gnosis?
...The hidden, inner meanings of all the great religions have always been fiercely protected and restricted, precisely because they contain tremendous power; power all too easily misunderstood and misused by the selfish, vulgar common thread of humanity. The transmission of the knowledge required a student to be "pious, gentle, and fearing God," or, in other words, the opposite type of person from the one who merely wants to make Gold from lead, to feed his desires.
On February 4, 1962, when the Age of Aquarius arrived, humanity entered into a very new situation. With the new celestial influence we saw the arrival of a huge shift in society: mass rebellion against the old ways, sexual experimentation, giant social earthquakes shaking up all the old traditions. We also saw the arrival in the West of a strong spiritual longing, and deep thirst for true, authentic spiritual experience. These two Elements: 1) rebellion to tradition and 2) thirst for spiritual knowledge are a direct effect of the influence of Aquarius, the most revolutionary sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is the Water Carrier, the significance of which you will see if you study the works of the aforementioned teachers. Its occult significance is Knowledge, the bringer of Knowledge. With the new age came a sudden revealing of all the hidden knowledge. The doors to the mysteries were thrown open so that humanity can save itself from itself.
This revelation was initiated by the first public exposure of the ancient esoteric knowledge: the publication of Samael Aun Weor's The Perfect Matrimony in the year 1950. The appearance of this book sparked a wildfire in the spiritual communities of that time; -many were shocked, many were outraged, and many were deeply inspired...
Rather it is another form of the old Anglo-Saxon word "torr" meaning "a prominent hill". "Torr" is a version of the Hebrew "tur" meaning "round tower" in the form of a mountain. Our English word "turret" is derived from this. At the end of a place name "tor" and "ton" take on an added significance; they both mean "a holy hill".
HMMM... interesting. The Morning Star and Sun rise in the East over the Capitol Building and over Juno and the reflections are seen in the pool of water infront of this hill. (going back to the etymology of Washington water-hill) Plus the whole of Washington D.C. is on the Potomac river if you needed more water in order to be happy with this theory..
"Lucina was an epithet for Juno as "she who brings children into the light", and Lucetia as "bringer of light" in general."
"Later, Lucina was an epithet for Juno as ("she who brings children into light").
The name was generally taken to have the sense of "she who brings children into the light" (Latin: lux "light"), but may actually have been derived from lucus ("grove") after a sacred grove of lotus trees on the Esquiline Hill associated with the goddess and tended by the Vestal virgins."
Tradition tells us that the person who is responsible for introducing religion and culture to Britain was the Celt/Druid Hesus. In this, his role was not unlike that of Osiris, who was the source of all knowledge in Ancient Egypt.
Druid mythology relates that Hesus/Hu was fathered by God and born of a virgin mother, Mayence in the 9th century BC. He was later crucified but his soul survived after Death.
It was upon the "holy hill" that the Druids held an annual ceremony in which they re-enacted the crucifixion of Hesus. This was called the Beltane Festival.
To the ancient Celts this was the great fertility festival. They believed that through their sexual union they could ensure the fertility of the Land and herds, so there was very little sexual restraint on this day. The plowing and sowing had been done, and it was customary to build great bonfires. The cattle would be driven between two great fires to purify them from the stresses of the long stabling. Each household would also extinguish their hearth fires and re-light it from embers carried from the ritual “need” fire.
The most sacred tree of all was the Oak tree, which represented the axis mundi, the center of the world. The Celtic name for oak, daur, is the origin of the word door- the root of the oak was literally the doorway to the Otherworld
The Ancient Egyptian symbol for "plant" meaning "Tree of Life" was three sacred lotus lilies. They have tree stems curving to the left as though blown by the easterly wind; and on top of each stem is the Lotus flower. The glyph which denotes the sacred knowledge associated with Hesus is also formed by the three stems of the three sacred lotus lilies.
When Hesus was crucified upon the Tree of Life he metaphorically became as one with the Tree. Just as Osiris became one with the tamarisk tree in which he was encased ... so Hesus/Hu became as one with the oak tree. Both Osiris and Hesus/Hu were representative of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve; they were representative of the World Pillar, the link between the terrestrial and the celestial worlds.
The Beltane Festival ... was also known as "the bringing down of the sun". This is a reference to an astronomical event, which occurred on September 21st 4468BCE when the Autumn (Fall) Equinox of the Sun was in conjunction with the Milky Way.
This conjunction initialized the movement of the Sun out of the Age of Leo/Gemini and into the Age of Taurus. This event which is known as Precession of the Equinoxes is recorded on the Ancient Egyptian Narmer Plate dated 4468BC
The Baal cult was associated with the bull. His story is recounted in the Baal Myth, which concerns a crisis in the Autumn Equinox. He was the god who died and rose again. Unfortunately as the original meaning of his myth (see below) was lost he became the seasonal god of vegetation, dying in the Autumn and having his resurrection in the Spring. This resulted in the Beltane Festival being held in Spring instead of Autumn. A Spring resurrection displays a total misunderstanding of the original stellar myth.
he Beltane Festival is the Bull Festival; the celebration of the Dawning of the Age of Taurus in September 4468BC. The words "Bel", "Baal" and "Lord" are interchangeable. Indeed the words "Bel", "Baal", "Bull" and "Lord" are interchangeable. The Lord Baal, the Lord Bel and the Lord were all references to the Bull in the Age of Taurus when he reigned supreme in the Ages of the Equinoxes.
The Beltane Festival and the re-enactment of the crucifixion on the Tree of Life ...(and) had been practised for at least four and a half thousand years prior to that time in remote Ancient Egypt.
The Festival had its roots in Ancient Egypt, but the Ancient Babylonians and Ancient Syrians later practised it, despite misinterpreting the message.
The Beltane Festival was a re-enactment of the bringing down of the Sun at the close of the Age of Gemini, and its subsequent rising in the Age of Taurus.
The prime concern of the Festival was to celebrate the Precession of the Equinoxes. The secondary concern was to celebrate the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac in general.
The Sacred Secret of Precession was known only to the initiated few who were the Guardians of the Secret. The uninitiated misinterpreted the symbolism … until now.
