IT is difficult for this age to estimate correctly the profound effect produced upon the religions, philosophies, and sciences of antiquity by the study of the planets, luminaries, and constellations. The pagans looked upon the stars as living things, capable of influencing the destinies of individuals, nations, and races. The Greeks, and later other peoples influenced by their culture, divided the band of the zodiac into twelve sections, each being sixteen degrees in width and thirty degrees in length.
There is a popular theory concerning the origin of the zodiacal creatures to the effect that they were products of the imagination of shepherds, who, watching their flocks at night, occupied their minds by tracing the forms of animals and birds in the heavens. Some authorities are of the opinion that the zodiac was originally divided into ten (instead of twelve) houses, or "solar mansions." In early times there were two separate standards--one solar and the other lunar--used for the measurement of the months, years, and seasons.
The first six signs of the zodiac of twelve signs were regarded as benevolent, because the sun occupied them while traversing the Northern Hemisphere.
Those who hold the opinion that before its revision by the Greeks the zodiac consisted of only ten signs adduce evidence to show that Libra (the Scales) was inserted into the zodiac by dividing the constellation of Virgo Scorpio (at that time one sign) into two parts, thus establishing "the balance" at the point of equilibrium between the ascending northern and the descending southern signs. Each year the sun passes entirely around the zodiac and returns to the point from which it started--the vernal equinox--and each year it falls just a little short of making the complete circle of the heavens in the allotted period of time.

The ornamental border contains groups of names of animal, mineral, and vegetable substances, Their relationship to corresponding parts of the human body is shown by the dotted lines. The plane of the zodiac intersects the celestial equator at an angle of approximately 23° 28'.
Among the ancients the sun was always symbolized by the figure and nature of the constellation through which it passed at the vernal equinox. Albert Pike describes the reverence which the Persians felt for this sign and the method of astrological symbolism in vogue among them, thus: "In Zoroaster's cave of initiation, the Sun and Planets were represented, overhead, in gems and gold, as was also the Zodiac. In ancient Egypt it was during this period--when the vernal equinox was in the sign of Taurus--that the Bull, Apis, was sacred to the Sun God, who was worshiped through the animal equivalent of the celestial sign which he had impregnated with his presence at the time of its crossing into the Northern Hemisphere. Sampson Arnold Mackey, in his Mythological Astronomy of the Ancients Demonstrated, makes note of two very interesting points concerning the bull in Egyptian symbolism.
As the zodiacal band marks the pathway of the sun through the constellations, it results in the phenomena of the seasons.
Four of the signs of the zodiac have been permanently dedicated to the equinoxes and the solstices; and, while the signs no longer correspond with the ancient constellations to which they were assigned, and from which they secured their names, they are accepted by modern astronomers as a basis of calculation. The summer solstice is regarded as occurring in Cancer (the Crab), which the Egyptians called the scarab--a beetle of the family Lamellicornes, the head of the insect kingdom, and sacred to the Egyptians as the symbol of Eternal Life. The constellation of Capricorn, in which the winter solstice theoretically takes place, was called The House of Death, for in winter all life in the Northern Hemisphere is at its lowest ebb. The period of 2,160 years required for the regression of the sun through one of the zodiacal constellations is often termed an age. From a consideration of this system, it is readily understood why certain religious symbols were adopted during different ages of the earth's history; for during the 2,160 years the sun was in the constellation of Taurus, it is said that the Solar Deity assumed the body of Apis, and the Bull became sacred to Osiris. During the Age of Pisces, the Fish was the symbol of divinity and the Sun God fed the multitude with two small fishes. Aquarius is called the Sign of the Water Bearer, or the man with a jug of water on his shoulder mentioned in the New Testament. When Herschel discovered the planet Uranus (sometimes called by the name of its discoverer), the second half of the sign of Aquarius was allotted to this added member of the planetary family. The important point to be remembered is that when the sun was said to be in a certain sign of the zodiac, the ancients really meant that the sun occupied the opposite sign and cast its long ray into the house in which they enthroned it. The Egyptians, the Assyrians, and the Babylonians, who knew the sun as a Bull, called the zodiac a series of furrows, through which the great celestial Ox dragged the plow of the sun.
The oldest circular zodiac known is the one found at Tentyra, in Egypt, and now in the possession of the French government.
The occultists of the ancient world had a most remarkable understanding of the principle of evolution.
The early star gazers, after dividing the zodiac into its houses, appointed the three brightest scars in each constellation to be the joint rulers of that house.
The sign of Sagittarius consists of what the ancient Greeks called a centaur--a composite creature, the lower half of whose body was in the form of a horse, while the upper half was human. The ancients believed that the theory of man's being made in the image of God was to be understood literally. The Pythagoreans were often undeservedly criticized for promulgating the so-called doctrine of metempsychosis, or the transmigration of souls. Everyone has characteristics that are unique to them, and even when certain things are the same (such as family or environment), no two people are the same.
While each person born under each sign has certain well-known attributes, there are also some hidden personality traits they share.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): It isn’t that an Aries should be the boss — it’s that they have an overwhelming need to lead. Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Any sign represented by the bull has got to be stubborn Tauruses are that, squared. Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gemini love to talk and are often able to convincingly sell both sides of the story. Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Cancers have a tendency to internalize not just their own emotions, but everybody else’s. Libra (September 23 – October 22): Libras are rational, and like things to be balanced and fair.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Scorpios are the ultimate truth-seekers, and they’re scary good at detecting a lie.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Sagittarius love to just get up and go on an adventure. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Capricorns are the most-likely-to-succeed sign of the entire zodiac. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Aquarians love humanity in general but sometimes find it difficult to express love to the objects of their affections. Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Pisces are extremely creative and thrive on artistic passions such as painting, acting, singing and just plain creating. RANDOM POSTS5 Tips for Butchering Your Life (So You Can Finally Live).March 30, 2016By Jennifer K. Due to the large quantity of WMG theories, you should try to move them to one of the sub-pages if possible. They traveled to a whole different dimension when they went through the hole in "Bottomless Pit".
That would mean that the Stan who's with them now is not the real Stan, as he fell twice through the hole.
Trembley was actually sent to Gravity Falls to research all the supernatural happenings there. Also, peanut brittle reduces Bill's abilities and is the opposite of gold, which amplifies them. He learned of the sap's life-preserving qualities and reasoned that if it could keep dinosaurs alive for over a hundred million years, it could keep him alive for long enough to return when he would be needed. The main characters will all take on some kind of magic to fight whatever Big Bad comes along. Bill Cipher will have a more fleshed-out role, either as a Chaotic Neutral semi-antagonist, or a Stealth Mentor for Dipper.
Not a lot of evidence to support this one yet, but I'm predicting that Stan's order and the government have different purposes for the device. The Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel originally got its name thanks to an Astonishingly Appropriate Interruption. Remember the shadow cast over everything (in Dipper's dream) at the beginning of "Gideon Rising"? Maybe they'll show the world ending, but since time travel exists here, it would likely be easily reversed. The world may not have ended, but the whole town was literally ripped from the ground and fell back down. Well what if the end of the world were shown in a way similar to Homestuck or Battleborn except they can actually save Earth in here?
Well, it's more like an almost-apocalypse, as we all know that the world will be saved at the end of the season anyways.
Dipper jumped in into the Gideon bot and kicked Gideon's ass, Mabel beat a shit load of gnomes with a leaf blower, and Stan punched a pterodactyl in the face. The Author has returned, Dipper is probably angry at both Mabel and Stan, and Gravity Falls itself has been torn to pieces. Mayor Befufftlefumpter, who has been revealed through cryptogram and simple observation to be "not long for this world" which is why the position of Mayor is up for grabs in The Stanchurian Candidate. The government agents couldn't have possibly stored all of their data in a single flash drive.
Yeah he was old, BUT Bud's running for mayor, as well as his contact with Gideon, quickly being able to campaign is a tad suspicious.
Aside from the obvious unicorn connection, Alex Hirsch is friends with Lauren Faust, who rebooted My Little Pony G3 into [1].
After Bill witnessed Ford "Bill-proofing" the Mystery Shack and realized he'd need a pawn outside of it, he began cycling through potential candidates. It will most likely be a Breather Episode, perhaps featuring the light hearted premise of a brief role-reversal in the main cast, with the others accidentally being made younger than Dipper and Mabel, and them having to look after them. However it will later prove to be a Chekhov's Gun for a more serious episode, where the Stan and Ford will find themselves facing odds they can not beat (say Gideon's army of criminals or such) and they resort to using the water to give them back their youth long enough to save the others.
When Dipper's explaining the Manotaur adventure in the diner, Stan is calmly supportive of Dipper's decision to do what he thought was right instead of being influenced by the crowd.
In Ford's dream, the six-fingered hand is obviously his, but the eye can't be his as the Pines' have brown eyes. The candidates for Bill possession shown at the end of "The Last Mabelcorn" will coincidentally all happen to be keeping their eyes covered for varying reasons so the viewers won't know which one is Bill until the reveal. Bill is pretty familiar with the Pines family and knows how loyal they are to each other, he might see it as a way of causing the rift in the family if he can force one of them to choose between protecting a friend by betraying the rest of the family, or staying loyal to the family by forsaking a friend. She's been getting more screen time lately, and Mabel mentions that having Candy and Dipper be together would be a dream come true for her, implying that she's always wanted Dipper to either be with one of her close friends, or at least to get along with any girlfriend Dipper chose. Out of all the tourist girls Dipper hit on, she was the only one named, and unlike all the other girls' contact details which were written on his body and later wiped off, Dipper has Emma Sue's e-mail address on paper.
Soos only made two episodes of Fixin' It With Soos because his Autografix Free Trial expired. The intro to these shorts has an Autografix Free Trial watermark clearly visible in some shots. As of "Roadside Attraction" the end-of-credits images that go together to form his face haven't revealed his eyes yet. It's worth noting that the episode to reveal that Bill can't possess Ford (anymore) was the one to end with the piece of the page showing his very normal eyes. In an allusion to Biff Tannen, Crampelter will arrive in Gravity Falls as a middle-aged Corrupt Corporate Executive and try to buy out the Mystery Shack. I think it's safe to say that telepathy is well within Bill's capabilities as well as disguising his presence given that his powers mostly have to do with secrets and manipulation.
As a result of battling Bill Cipher, the timeline is reset back to the beginning of summer, with everybody's memories erased. Mabel unknowingly unleashed Bill Cipher on the world, and the events and the aftermath of that folly with have a huge impact on the Pines twins. Dipper and Mabel split up like Stan and Ford did: Dipper and Mabel both have good reasons to be angry with each other. Dipper and Mabel avoid making the same mistakes Stan and Ford did: I am sure that they would both be very angry with each other, but Bill's plans force them to work together, which is what Stan and Ford should have done long ago.
During a season finale, possibly the series finale, Dipper and Mabel will be about to fight the Big Bad (whether it be Bill in the upcoming Part 2 of Weirdmaggedon if that's the last episode, or possibly fighting a Greater Scope Villain if there's more seasons afterward). The universe is too badly damaged to be repairable except through Bill's own power and he's not likely to cooperate.
Eye-catching and uplifting, this colorful zodiac allies and secret friend for Boar hanging is an ideal Feng Shui charm for those born under this horoscope sign. It may be nothing, and following up at this point might be useless (due to the passage of time, and practical concerns), but if Zodiac was familiar with these cards it stands to reason that he could have used them before, in a less sinister sense.Based on the pattern of crimes (it has been posited by others) Zodiac was jealous of his victims' intimate relationships, thus the animus and drive to commit the crimes.

I think everyone's familiar with my solution to the thirteen symbol cipher that involves assigning the characters values and then using set addition to add those values together, one set at a time.
This theory is untenable, unless the "shepherds" be regarded as the shepherd priests of antiquity. The solar year was composed of ten months of thirty-six days each, and five days sacred to the gods. The 6,000 years during which, according to the Persians, Ahura-Mazda ruled His universe in harmony and peace, were symbolic of these six signs.
As a result, it crosses the equator just a little behind the spot in the zodiacal sign where it crossed the previous year.
The words in capital letters on the dotted lines indicate to what corporeal member, organ, or disease, the herb or other substance is related. For nearly the past 2,000 years the sun has crossed the equator at the vernal equinox in the constellation of Pisces (the Two Fishes).
The Old Testament of the Jews, its writings overshadowed by Egyptian culture, is a mass of astrological and astronomical allegories. It is evident that the constellation of the Crab is represented by this peculiar creature because the sun, after passing through this house, proceeds to walk backwards, or descend the zodiacal arc. Capricorn is a composite creature, with the head and upper body of a goat and the tail of a fish. This body, which they called the Macrocosm (the Great World), was divided into twelve major parts, one of which was under the control of the celestial powers reposing in each of the zodiacal constellations. According to this system, the age secured its name from the sign through which the sun passes year after year as it crosses the equator at the vernal equinox.
The frontispiece of Inman's Ancient Faiths shows the goddess Isis with a fish on her head; and the Indian Savior God, Christna, in one of his incarnations was cast from the mouth of a fish. This is sometimes shown as an angelic figure, supposedly androgynous, either pouring water from an urn or carrying the vessel upon its shoulder. The water pouring from the urn of Aquarius under the name of "the waters of eternal life" appears many times in symbolism. One of them, the Ptolemaic, is geocentric: the earth is considered the center of the solar system, around which the sun, moon, and planets revolve. This posits the sun in the center of the solar system, where it naturally belongs, with the planets and their moons revolving about it. Therefore, when it is said that the sun is in Taurus, it means (astronomically) that the sun is in the sign opposite to Taurus, which is Scorpio.
The arrangement of the stars of the constellation bears as much resemblance to a flying bird as to a scorpion. Hence the populace offered up sacrifice and led through the streets magnificent steers, bedecked with flowers and surrounded with priests, dancing girls of the temple, and musicians.
To contend that it originated but a mere few thousand years before the Christian Era is a colossal mistake on the part of those who have sought to compile data, concerning its origin. Then they divided the house into three sections of ten degrees each, which they called decans. The constellation of Gemini is generally represented as two small children, who, according to the ancients, were born out of eggs, possibly the ones that the Bull broke with his horns. The centaur is generally shown with a bow and arrow in his hands, aiming a shaft far off into the stars. They maintained that the universe was a great organism not unlike the human body, and that every phase and function of the Universal Body had a correspondence in man. This concept as circulated among the uninitiated was merely a blind, however, to conceal a sacred truth.
But what people might be surprised to learn about you is your love for pretty things, and that one way to get a Taurus to budge is to suggest they go buy themselves a new piece of jewelry or send them a bouquet of flowers.
They will tell you what you want to hear, then turn around and tell you everything you absolutely don’t want to hear. Libras aren’t cold, they just don’t get why you’d follow your heart when you know in your head it isn’t a wise decision. Scorpios are passionate but sometimes those passions are channeled into negative emotions like jealousy and obsession. They hate to be tied down and their wanderlust can make it difficult for them to commit to one person. It isn’t that they don’t feel love, it’s just that they don’t feel the need to express it in showy or demonstrative ways. Pisces can get totally caught up in their imaginations, and sometimes need to be pulled back to earth. When Robbie originally asked Wendy out, he was nervous and a lot more sympathetic character than at any time before. So Robbie and Wendy can start dating, so Dipper can try to win Wendy's love, so he can learn that you can't force someone to love you, so he can bring about Gideon's Heel?Face Turn in Weirdmageddon Part 1.
He eventually discovered something groundbreaking that couldn't be taken advantage of with the technology of the time. Stan advises people to bury gold so that Bill will be at full power when the apocalypse comes. He included some of the sap in the peanut brittle he used to freeze himself in, relying on his reputation as a nutcase to keep people from testing if it really worked. Bill certainly didn't get any softer or benevolent, staying true to his role as a Knight of Cerebus. The government will try and destroy it, while the order probably thinks it can somehow control what comes out of it. And the first three episodes of season two have just happened to deal with changing relationships between characters. The Rock-afire Explosion was in its final years during that time, which Hoo-Ha's Jamboree is clearly based on.
The past self disappears into the portal in the summer of 1982, but is rescued and returned to the past after he disappears so that he can ensure his own success in rescuing himself by becoming Gruncle Stan. Either the 'old' Stan will spend the remainder of the series in jail, or the 'new' Stan will make bail (in which case we may learn that Stan's penny-pinching is not from greed, but as a plan B if the cops ever caught up to him). After saying goodbye to their friends in Gravity Falls, they look out the bus window, seeing supernatural creatures from past episodes (for example, a couple of gnomes, a tiny deer, a miniature, and a multi-bear).
Perhaps they'll stumble on a copy of the data back at their headquarters and restart their investigation. Also, The Friendship is Magic comic book series had a dream sequence featuring a sweater-clad, shooting-star themed pony named May Belle. The main unicorn that Mabel dealt with was named Celesaibellebethabelle, similar to Celestia, and she had a rainbow colored flowing main, as well as a visible "cutie mark".
That would presumably lead up to him catching a glimpse of Gideon through the image of him he drew saying he wants to make a deal.
Maybe when we were in are prime we would have had a chance, but we're both to old to take them all on. In addition, Mantestaur's name doesn't get anything from Stan but when Dipper mentions Pituitaur Stan looks up from his pie.
The blue eye belongs to McGucket, who mentioned having blue eyes in the Ice Bag segment of McGucket's Conspiracy Corner.
It would be Bill's cup of tea to try to force those feeling to come back stronger than ever (or convince him that they have), or to tempt Dipper with the possibility that he might be able to have Wendy return his feelings if he saves her. After Sock Opera, Bill might see Dipper and Mabel's bond as a significant threat to his plans, and seek to undermine it by forcing Mabel to choose between Dipper and Candy on some level. Soos didn't want to buy the full version, so the free trial expired and he had to cut the series after two episodes. It's possible he was trying to get Dipper to see inside Stanford's mind to sow distrust and prevent him from protecting his mind. Mabel opening the rift that give Bill his opening Dipper for abandoning Mabel to work with Ford and not telling her about the rift.
Dipper was outside the shack's safe zone at the time and as Bill is, as he said, "A being of pure energy." it's not unthinkable that he could manipulate electricity and get the Talkie to broadcast so Mabel would get upset and be easier to manipulate. The two of them will then sing a lyrical, possibly extended version of their Theme Song, detailing all the things they've gone through together as they race against time to defeat whatever force they end up facing. But the timeline could be fixed as long as someone goes back in time three days and prevents the events, such as Dipper apologizing to Mabel, warning himself to leave the rift globe in Ford's lab or just swapping the backpack in his room so Mabel grabs the correct one when she runs out.
Allying with affinitive astrological signs is thought to be a great way to enhance luck in Chinese astrology. You always can be expected to come thorugh with points of interest from a different perspective!!!
The Native American cultures believe that a person is assigned an animal upon the time of birth. The Egyptians were honored with a special appellation because of their proficiency in computing the power and motion of the heavenly bodies and their effect upon the destinies of nations and individuals.
The Central and North American Indians also had an understanding of the zodiac, but the patterns and numbers of the signs differed in many details from those of the Eastern Hemisphere. The sun during its annual pilgrimage passed through each of these in turn, Imaginary creatures were traced in the Star groups bounded by these rectangles; and because most of them were animal--or part animal--in form, they later became known as the Constellations, or Signs, of the Zodiac. It is unlikely that the zodiacal signs were derived from the star groups which they now represent. The lunar year consisted of thirteen months of twenty-eight days each, with one day left over.
The second six were considered malevolent, because while the sun was traveling the Southern Hemisphere it was winter with the Greeks, Egyptians, and Persians.
The favorable positions in relation to the time of year are shown by the signs of the zodiac, each house of which is divided by crosses into its three decans. This means that in the course of about 25,920 years, which constitute one Great Solar or Platonic Year, each one of the twelve constellations occupies a position at the vernal equinox for nearly 2,160 years, then gives place to the previous sign.
Mackey is of the opinion that the motion of the earth that we know as the alternation of the poles has resulted in a great change of relative position of the equator and the zodiacal band. The year always began with the vernal equinox, celebrated March 21 with rejoicing to mark the moment when the sun crossed the equator northward up the zodiacal arc. It is fitting that of all beasts a Ram should be placed at the head of the heavenly flock forming the zodiacal band.
Cancer is the symbol of generation, for it is the house of the Moon, the great Mother of all things and the patroness of the life forces of Nature. The constellation of the Scales was placed in the zodiac to symbolize the power of choice, by means of which man may weigh one problem against another. Believing that the entire universal system was epitomized in man's body, which they called the Microcosm (the Little World), they evolved that now familiar figure of "the cut-up man in the almanac" by allotting a sign of the zodiac to each of twelve major parts of the human body. From this arrangement are derived the terms The Taurian Age, The Aryan Age, The Piscean Age, and The Aquarian Age.
Sheep and goats were sacrificed upon the altars, and a scapegoat was appointed to bear the sins of Israel. Astronomically, the geocentric system is incorrect; but for thousands of years it has proved its accuracy when applied to the material nature of earthly things. The great difficulty, however, with the heliocentric system is that, being comparatively new, there has not been sufficient time to experiment successfully and catalogue the effects of its various aspects and relationships.
This resulted in two distinct schools of philosophy: one geocentric and exoteric, the other heliocentric and esoteric.
Scorpio, being the sign of occult initiation, the flying eagle--the king of birds--represents the highest and most spiritual type of Scorpio, in which it transcends the venomous insect of the earth.
The philosophic elect did not participate in these idolatrous ceremonials, but advocated them as most suitable for the types of mind composing the mass of the population. John Cole describes this remarkable zodiac as follows: "The diameter of the medallion in which the constellations are sculptured, is four feet nine inches, French measure. The zodiac necessarily must be ancient enough to go backward to that period when its signs and symbols coincided exactly with the positions of the constellations whose various creatures in their natural functions exemplified the outstanding features of the sun's activity during each of the twelve months. These, in turn, were divided in half, resulting in the breaking up of the zodiac into seventy-two duodecans of five degrees each. The stories concerning Castor and Pollux, and Romulus and Remus, may be the result of amplifying the myths of these celestial Twins. The most precious Key to Wisdom that the priests communicated to the new initiates was what they termed the law of analogy.

Greek mystics believed that the spiritual nature of man descended into material existence from the Milky Way--the seed ground of souls--through one of the twelve gates of the great zodiacal band.
What they may not know is that if you’re an Aries and you aren’t in charge, then you will do almost anything to change that. Gemini, you can’t control the words that come out of your mouth but try to remember to coat them in kindness. Make sure you give yourself time each day to decompress and make sure to release all those emotions you’re holding. If you want a committed relationship with a Sagittarius, be ready to drop everything and just go. Because they’re so goal-orientated, they need to put things like sex and “show him how much I love him” on their to-do list, or their life will only be about work. The know they’re the off-kilter ones in any group, but they secretly enjoy being different than everybody else. Writing down whatever he discovered risked the possibility of the information falling into enemy hands, so instead he preserved himself to pass on the information to the future.
His confusion at the end of Dreamscaperers when Bill is mentioned is confusion over why Bill would betray him. First the twins found out Grunkle Stan knew more than he ever admitted, then Dipper revealed his crush to Wendy, and finally Mabel's rivalry with Patricia cooled.
Dipper outright states in the second season premiere that it's been half a summer by that point.
In one old Gravity Falls game (I don't remember what it was called, but it was made in 2012 or 2013) there is a calender in the shack that probably happens to be an aztec calender for some reason. Depending on this, a sideplot for the rest of the series might focus on getting to know New!Stan, or regaining trust for Old!Stan. Tearing up seeing this, Mable asks Dipper, who's excitedly looking over a calendar, when they can come back. Perhaps Stan went through something much like what Dipper went through with Chutzpah, but his guide was Pituitaur?
However, she seems to be on the Wheel, suggesting she's either immune to, or destined to be against, Bill and his powers. Ruins of primitive astronomical observatories have been discovered in all parts of the world, although in many cases modern archæologists are unaware of the true purpose for which these structures were erected.
It is far more probable that the creatures assigned to the twelve houses are symbolic of the qualities and intensity of the sun's power while it occupies different parts of the zodiacal belt. Therefore these six months symbolic of the 6,000 years of misery and suffering caused by the evil genius of the Persians, Ahriman, who sought to overthrow the power of Ahura-Mazda.
This influence is further emphasized by the series of planetary signs placed on either side of the figure.
He believes that originally the band of the zodiac was at right angles to the equator, with the sign of Cancer opposite the north pole and the sign of Capricorn opposite the south pole.
Some writers are of the opinion that the original twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet were derived from groups of stars, and that the starry handwriting on the wall of the heavens referred to words spelt out, with fixed stars for consonants, and the planets, or luminaries, for vowels. The summer solstice was celebrated when the sun reached its most northerly position, and the day appointed was June 21. Millions of years ago, when the human race was in the making, man was like the angels, who knew neither good nor evil. During these periods, or ages, religious worship takes the form of the appropriate celestial sign--that which the sun is said to assume as a personality in the same manner that a spirit assumes a body. The sign of the fish was one of the earliest symbols of Christianity; and when drawn upon the sand, it informed one Christian that another of the same faith was near. Thus the sun in its path controls whatever form of worship man offers to the Supreme Deity. A careful consideration of the writings of the great occultists and a study of their diagrams reveal the fact that many of them were acquainted with another method of arranging the heavenly bodies.
Geocentric astrology, as its name implies, is confined to the earthy side of nature, while heliocentric astrology may be used to analyze the higher intellectual and spiritual faculties of man.
While the ignorant multitudes worshiped the house of the sun's reflection, which in the case described would be the Bull, the wise revered the house of the sun's actual dwelling, which would be the Scorpion, or the Serpent, the symbol of the concealed spiritual mystery. As Scorpio and Taurus are opposite each other in the zodiac, their symbolism is often closely intermingled. These few possessed a far deeper understanding, as the Serpent of Scorpio upon their foreheads--the Uræus--bore witness. The astrologers distinguished Leo as the 'sole house of the sun,' and taught that the world was created when the sun was in that sign.
It is surrounded by another circle of much larger circumference, containing hieroglyphic characters; this second circle is enclosed in a square, whose sides are seven feet nine inches long. One author, after many years of deep study on the subject, believed man's concept of the zodiac to be at least five million years old. One of the stages between the solar system and the cosmic chain was called the zodiac; therefore they taught that at a certain time a solar system breaks up into a zodiac. Over each of these duodecans the Hebrews placed a celestial intelligence, or angel, and from this system, has resulted the Qabbalistic arrangement of the seventy-two sacred names, which correspond to the seventy-two flowers, knops, and almonds upon the seven-branched Candlestick of the Tabernacle, and the seventy-two men who were chosen from the Twelve Tribes to represent Israel. Therefore, to the ancients, the study of the stars was a sacred science, for they saw in the movements of the celestial bodies the ever-present activity of the Infinite Father.
The spiritual nature was therefore said to incarnate in the form of the symbolic creature created by Magian star gazers to represent the various zodiacal constellations. It’s not much of a stretch to suspect that Lucious Lyon of Empire is a Leo, and his ex-wife Cookie is, too.
If they see that you can play by their rules, they won’t feel tied down but that they’ve found an emotional travel companion.
Both have extraordinary powers, Wizbit's being magical, and Bill's being derived from his nature as an extradimensional demon. They came up with the president story as a lie to the people sent to retrieve him so that they wouldn't be suspicious of the true nature of their mission. Something comes up if you observe it, and says something around the lines of "According to this calender, the world ended 3 years ago." So if you assume 3 years after 2012 as in 2015, the evidence makes sense. More specifically, a sideways triangle, with Dipper and Soos at the base and Mable at the top. She's also a scrapper, and it's unlikely Dipper could save her from anything she couldn't save herself from.
Boars are thought to naturally make excellent friends with these signs and receive mutual protection and support from them. While the telescope was unknown to ancient astronomers, they made many remarkable calculations with instruments cut from blocks of granite or pounded from sheets of brass and cop per.
It is probable that the form of the bull and the bull's proclivities were assigned to this constellation because the bull was used by the ancients to plow the fields, and the season set aside for plowing and furrowing corresponded to the time at which the sun reached the segment of the heavens named Taurus. It is possible that the Orphic symbol of the serpent twisted around the egg attempts to show the motion of the sun in relation to the earth under such conditions.
These, coming into ever-different combinations, spelt words which, when properly read, foretold future events.
