In the first part, I pointed out this time period:
Dec 21, 2012 – July 3, 2016, which is 1290 days, as the 3 and 1/2 year period during which Ahriman takes full possession of his human vessel, to whom we’ve been referring as “Mr X.”
In the following, we’ll take a closer look at the potential “end date” of July 3, 2016 and how it relates to another important date: the date of conception of Mr. X.
It has been well established by Robert Powell that Mr. X’s birthdate was 7:20 AM on February 5, 1962 (Moon and Ascendant in Capricorn). What about the conception date? Using the hermetic rule (see Astrogeographia), I arrive at a conception date of May 7, 1961 (Moon in Capricorn, Ascendant in Cancer). This adjusted the birth time of Mr. X to 7:12 AM rather than 7:20 AM.
This gives us a time period beginning on May 7, 1961 and culminating on July 3, 2016. The exact midpoint of this time period is December 5, 1988. What can and should we make of this?
In my research, there are untold mysteries that can be unraveled by finding a significant midpoint and working out in both directions from that midpoint, the supreme example of this being Christ’s life, the focal point of all history. What about this date of December 5, 1988 — is it the midpoint of another timeline, other than the life of Mr. X?
We would benefit here from a brief refresher on Robert Powell’s description of the cosmic 40 Days of Temptation in the Wilderness: these “days” follow the rhythm of the Saturn return. Every time Saturn enters Sagittarius, a new “day” has begun. These days of temptation began in 869 AD; as of 1929, we began the critical final four days of temptation:
1929 – 1959: The Luciferic Temptation
1959 – 1988: The Luciferic/Ahrimanic Temptation
1988 – 2018: The Ahrimanic Temptation
2018-2047: A time period when humanity is either ministered unto by the three Angels, due to overcoming temptation (Thy Will Be Done), or they succumb to the fourth temptation: megalomania (My Will Be Done).
These days will be further characterized in another section – for now we will have to be satisfied with this brief recap (see also here)
How do these “days” relate to December 5, 1988? On this date, Saturn was at 7.5 degrees Sagittarius. If we go back exactly 59 years (less 9 days) to December 14, 1929, once again Saturn is at 7.5 degrees Sagittarius. If we go forward exactly 59 years (less 9 days) we arrive at November 26, 2047 – and once again, Saturn is exactly positioned at 7.5 degrees Sagittarius. So this date is not only the precise midpoint between Dec 14, 1929 and Nov 26, 2047, it is also the Saturn return of those dates.
Can we see anything here other than a bunch of numbers? What are they saying to us? What I have come to in my “inner forum” after living with these ideas for a year, is that 7.5 degrees Sagittarius is the point in the zodiac that demarcates the beginning of a new “day of temptation” once Saturn arrives there. This means that December 5, 1988 is not only the exact midpoint of the life of Mr. X, from conception to complete possession (May 7, 1961 – July 3, 2016); it is also the exact midpoint of the final four days of temptation – the turning point. Further, the time period from May 1961 – July 2016 falls precisely within the two days of temptation during which Ahriman is active (the 38th and 39th days — Luciferic/Ahrimanic Temptation and Ahrimanic Temptation).
So: Dec 5, 1988 is the exact middle of the last four days in the wilderness. This date is not only a turning point; it can also be used, in some respects, as a mirror. For example, the following Presidential administrations mirror each other, revolving around the axis of December 5, 1988:
Reagan — Bush I
Carter — Clinton
Nixon/Ford — Bush 2
JFK/Johnson — Obama
Further examples: Thirteen years forward from 1988 brings us to 2001, the beginning of the “war on terror.” Thirteen years back takes us to the end of the war in Vietnam, which lasted for nearly 20 years. Iran Contra is mirrored in the Gulf War. The recent renewal of relations with Cuba is another reflection. I’m sure there are other similar events.
There are further implications to this mirroring, beyond external history. I have a feeling the mirroring is particular to these four “days” of temptation — that after 2047 we will come out of a vortex of sorts, and not just continue living through warped reflections of the past. At least I hope so. Of particular significance is that the time period from 2018 – 2047 is a mirroring of the day of Luciferic Temptation (1929 – 1959). A great part of our task during this time period will be the redemption of Lucifer. Much will depend on 1) whether humanity as a whole overcomes the three temptations in the wilderness and does not succumb to megalomania and 2) whether humanity can affect on a large scale the redemption and Christening of Lucifer in world evolution. Otherwise we may be doomed to repeat in a metamorphosed and amplified fashion the tragic events of 1929-1959.
(The following paragraph was written a year ago, hence the anachronism): Another possible implication of this mirroring involves the gestation of Mr. X (from May 7, 1961 through February 5, 1962) being reflected in the nine months from October 5, 2015 through July 3, 2016. I had already been pondering this autumn as falling 7 years after the financial collapse in 2008, and 14 years after the fall of the Twin Towers in 2001. This may be a particularly tumultuous time period.
(I think it can be safely concluded that this past fall was indeed an incredibly tumultuous time for the world. Since then, and I know this is not simply a personal feeling of my own or those who view the world as I do, humanity has felt poised on a dreadful precipice, holding our breath before the plunge. I think events that occurred around October 5, including but not limited to the escalation of the Russian/American proxy war in Syria and the end of the Jade Helm operation, were conceptions that will come to birth between June and July of this year. We must be ready to make the choice between “Thy Will Be Done” and “My Will Be Done,” particularly at that point in time.)
Finally, there is the distinct possibility that May 7, 1961’s mirroring in July 3, 2016 indicates a massive shift in Mr. X’s activity — perhaps even the end of that activity as we know it. There is some cause for hope if this is the case, although barring his redemption the tragedy of the situation is incredibly palpable. However, we cannot allow our gaze to lose track of Ahriman by remaining too focussed on Mr. X. Our work of courageously resisting and naming Ahriman continues, even as his sphere of incarnation shifts…(Continued in Part 3).
