----- WARNING SPOILERS -----
With the conclusion of season 3 of Game of Thrones I have noticed some interesting themes involving the characters and families in relation primarily
to the old Mystery Schools.
The first involves the character Gendry.
The only piece of armor he made for himself was a helmet designed after a bull.
Now come season 3 the Red Woman is engaging in mass human sacrifice by fire which was attributed to the Ammo nite/ Canaanite/ Phoenician god Moloch.
Worship of the god was said to involve throwing children to the flames before a bull headed idol. The bull head as many know came from the house, or
in this case throne, in which the Sun was residing in its procession. The bull would be the constellation Taurus.
Moreover the Red Woman makes a reference to the "Silent Sisters" whose symbol is a 7 pointed star when talking to Gendry. One could easily make the
argument she was talking about the Pleiades which is a grouping of 7 stars in the Taurus constellation.
In astronomy, the Pleiades (/ˈplaɪ.ədiːz/ or /ˈpliː.ədiːz/), or Seven Sisters (Messier object 45 or M45), is an open star cluster containing
middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus.
The name Pleiades comes from Greek mythology; the celestial entity has several meanings in different cultures and traditions.
The Red Woman is a worshiper of what appears to be a Sun god meme with strong Biblical references to the "Scarlet Woman" who rides the "Beast" with a
cup full of her iniquities. This character is often depicted drinking from a cup of wine before she gets involved in killing others.
Following all these human sacrifices the Red Woman goes on a journey and returns with Gendry the "bull god."
On the journey she encounters the young Arya who had just made the comment that her god was "death." This in itself meant nothing to me until I
recalled the saying of their house "winter is coming." Winter was always associated with the constellation Capricorn, also known as the "house of
death" or in this case "throne." This involves the Sun rising in the house of Capricorn at the onset of winter. Winter was a time where people would
starve and freeze and thus the association with death.
House (astrology) - Capricorn
Despite its faintness, Capricornus has one of the oldest mythological associations, having been consistently represented as a hybrid of a goat and a
fish since the Middle Bronze Age. First attested in depictions on a cylinder-seal from around the 21st century BC, it was explicitly recorded in
the Babylonian star catalogues as MULSUḪUR.MAŠ "The Goat-Fish" before 1000 BC. The constellation was a symbol of the god Ea and in the Early Bronze
Age marked the winter solstice.
So we had a "Scarlet Woman" who worships the "Lord of Light" (a.k.a. the Sun) and passing the "house of death" (Capricorn) and returning with "Moloch"
I thought it was quite the clever regurgitation of the same old stories we have had for thousands of years.
