It excites me to know there are like minds here willing to ponder in those deeper realms.
You brought up some great things and I appreciate you adding to the context of this thread! You are exactly right, the hidden constellation is often
mistranslated as the 13th sign, but it is not literally.
Im not sure how long the 13th sign has been a part of the zodiac. Ive studied somewhat on the movements and how over time, the constellations do
change. We only have a small part of the Ophiuchus in the zodiac, but it is longer then Scorpio, so its defiantly a part of it.
I have read that Virgo and Scorpio used to be considered ONE constellation. And I dont imagine that through all of Earths past, Ophiuchus was always a
part of the zodiac. But it has been for at least a couple thousand yrs and it is very misleading.
The sidereal zodiac, the one that acknowledges Ophiuchus, shows us where the sun really does rise. If I look at the tropical zodiac (the one that
makes our silly horoscopes in the news papers and such) it does not show us where the sun really is and the amounts of time the sun is in those signs
is wrong also.
Very interesting what you found in the Gnostic gospels. I have never noticed that before and that intrigues me to go read them again in full context.
BTW, the stories of Sophia are some of my absolute favs. If there ever was a fall, at will, to offer a self for the use of a creation....I think
Sophia did this...offering herself (wisdom) to men....I also look at this like the Harlot who is misunderstood....the spirit within all that is
usually used and abused, taken advantage of....but will one day, be in her rightful place again. Christ, being her counterpart, is trying to save the
harlot, the spirit, the wisdom of the ONE.
I bable and often make no sense to others
I also find it interesting that all the great stories of a great teacher seem to revolve around a 12 and a 1 in the center of the 12. Some think the
12 tribes, 12 disciples ect....are the 12 signs....if so , then would that make the great teacher the 13th, the serpent handler? They say Horus also
had 12 followers....course all of that is assumptions of some eccentric history....but who knows.
Im curious, how many months are in a moon calendar...is it still 12?
Peace to you,
