2016: Sinterklaas

Sinterklaas is a mythical figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins based on Saint Nicholas and is the primary source of the popular Christmas icon of Santa Claus. Sinterklaas is an elderly, stately and serious man with white hair and a long, full beard. He wears a long red cape or chasuble over a traditional white bishop’s alb and sometimes red stola, dons a red miter and ruby ring, and holds a gold-colored crosier, a long ceremonial shepherd’s staff with a fancy curled top, and traditionally he rides a white horse. Zwarte Piet is a companion of Sinterklaas, usually portrayed by a man in blackface with black curly hair, dressed up like a 17th-century page in colorful attire, often sporting a lace collar and a feathered cap.  Parallels have been drawn between the legend of Sinterklaas and the figure of Odin, who as King of the Norse Aesir was a major […] Read More

Your Zodiac Sign Has Shifted: NASA Updated The Zodiac Signs For The First Time In 2,000 Years

Astrology can be summed up as the belief that the alignment of our sun and various constellations in transit affects our lives on a fundamental level.

The sky is different than what the ancient astrologers viewed. Now, the constellations are off by about a month. Therefore 86% of people are living […] Read More

The Ship of Heaven

Copyright David Talbott This is a follow-up article to my earlier “Reconstructing the Saturn Myth” and “On Testing the Polar Configuration” (AEON I: 1-2). It is assumed that readers have read these articles and are familiar with the general context of the theory discussed in the following pages. Introduction In two previous essays, I have outlined a theory of the Saturnian age, claiming that only a few thousand years ago (some time before the dawn of civilization) the Earth participated in a planetary system unlike anything known today. Though all of modern science presumes the ancient sky to have looked much like our sky today, I have argued that early man witnessed a remarkable assembly of planets moving close to the Earth and presenting a spectacular apparition in the heavens. I have called this apparition the polar configuration, and suggested that its tangible forms are mirrored in all of […] Read More
