Simplifying the Mystery of the Trinity
The Kabbalah characters of Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, the major outer planets on the Tree of Life, define the Trinity of Christianity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. But the Tree also explains the great mystery of the One God in Three Persons.
The One God is the divine, supreme Spirit of the Sun, the life and heart of all Creation on Earth. The Three Persons of the Trinity are embraced and united in the Spirit of this One God just as these major planets are embraced by the Sun as part of his family, the single Solar System.
This understanding and knowledge has not survived and priests mutter vaguely, utterly unconvincing, about ‘the ineffable mystery of the Trinity.’ It is time we knew the facts behind faith.
Mary’s Heavenly Marriage
The Trinity is now a Quaternity with the papal dogma of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary as the Queen of Heaven and Bride of the heavenly Bridegroom, Christ. The astrology of the Kabbalah explains this new mystery of Christianity in comprehensible terms. Mary represents Eve redeemed, theology finally embracing our earthly, earthy natures. It is no coincidence this dogma parallels the long-overdue emancipation of women.
Heaven on Earth endorses C.G. Jung’s interpretation of one of the most significant implications of this monumental dogma, the fulfilment of a central prophecy of the Book of Revelation. Jung observed divine unions are rarely infertile and recalled the appearance of Sophia, Wisdom, towards the end of the Old Testament period, as the ‘helpmate’ of Jehovah. This was followed by the Birth of the divine Son, Christ.
The Divinity of Women
Jung foresaw the Birth of a new divinity and traced the development of God becoming man in Christ and then the Assumption of the earthly Mary to a throne in Heaven alongside the Trinity.
Jung suggested the new divinity would be mankind, though perhaps womankind present a more convincing case. If we have the divine Spirit of the Gods within us, we have only to recognise this ultimate blessing to discover our own divinity. Theologically speaking.
More practically, it is clear we have inherited many of the omnipotent powers of God. While we should beware the fatal disease of conceit, we should accept more responsibility for ourselves and our world. Share the responsibility with God, instead of blithely questioning how God can allow such inhumanity as we constantly foster, support and perpetrate.
This is not a new idea. In St John’s Gospel (10.34) Christ quotes Psalm 82 :
‘They know not, neither will they understand, they walk on in darkness,
all the foundations of the world are out of course.
I have said, Ye are gods;
and all of you are the children of the Most High.”
“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law
I said, Ye are gods ?”
Good and Evil, a Battle of the Planets
The astrological Kabbalah of the Tree readily explains the vexed question of evil, the Devil and Satan, in down to earth terms we can recognise as sensible. The Heaven on Earth cover picture (above) shows the Kingdom, Earth, under an Egyptian image of Horus and Set, the gods of the Sun and Saturn. They represent the two spirits of Good and Evil.
In Christianity Satan, the Devil, portrays the spirit of Saturn with the cloven hoof and horns of a goat, representing his ruling Sign, Capricorn, the Goat. This does not simplistically point the finger at Capricorns : with the Sun in this Sign, their understanding of materialism is often more enlightened than most.
Since Earth is also ruled by the Goat, Saturn’s materialistic spirit is particularly influential. It blinds us to the subtler spirits, love, relationships, humanity, caring, joy, happiness, which we cannot measure, touch or see, or put in the bank – except with God.
We also see Christ’s Cross, the focus of Christianity, as a symbol and logo for the Tree of Life which bestows immortality. Suddenly the Resurrection of Christ makes credible sense !
