The Sun of the Gods is the Christian Devil

   Posted by: Scrivener

Well, not really but it makes for an interesting catch line.

The magic square of the Sun’s six rows and columns add up to 111 producing a sum of 666. The Sun therefore resonates with the number 666 or taking the Cartesian product of 6662 or 443,556. Using Kabalistic reduction 443556 becomes 4 + 4 + 3 + 5 + 5 + 6 = 27 = 2 + 7 = 9.

Sun-Magic Square

Nine is the number of leadership (well, the sun is the head of solar system—probably why they call it the solar system) and humanitarianism. Nine is also the number of completion just as all nine in the pip cards of the Tarot symbolize the ending of a cycle and reaping the rewards of your efforts. The ninth card of the Tarot is the hermit.

 

The hermit has withdrawn from the mundane to search for the truth of the universe, but like the sun, he doesn’t hide his lamp rather he shines it from a prominence just as the sun shines from above illuminating everything below. It could further be stated that without the life-giving rays from above no manifestation of life below on Earth would be possible: as above, so below.

 

The ninth rune is Hagalaz. Hagalaz signals a major shift of energies as the Elder Futhark begins its second row of aetts. Hagalaz is the rune of objective confrontation with past patterns. It will uncover the vast flow of energies around and through human energy systems. Its nature is completely impersonal and it represents power generally beyond human ability to harness. In some ways this rune is much like The World or Wheel of Fortune tarot cards as those cards also indicate powerful forces at work but largely forces which may not be influenced by human behavior.

 

Some numerical coincidences of the number 666; and I don’t believe in coincidences are that the Tropic of Cancer is 66.6 degrees from the North pole, the Tropic of Capricorn is 66.6 degrees from the South Pole, the Equator is 66.6 degrees from the Arctic and Antarctic circles, and the Earth’s average orbital speed is 66,666 miles per hour (99.9%).

 

To complete the reduction, we can take the square root of nine (remember 666 was squared to give 443556.) That of course leaves us with 3. The Empress (the Empress is the third card in the tarot deck) rules threes in the tarot. The Empress is the supernal mother and thus nurtures new beginnings just as the threes in each of the tarot suits suggest a new beginning begun and initial first steps made.

 

To round out the discussion, the third rune, Thurisaz, tells us that we’ve made the right choices and taken the correct steps to put ourselves in the right place and the right time but now the best action is to take no action at all. Typically you might draw this rune after a magickal working, a tarot reading, or something as mundane as ajob interview. You’ve done all you can so now relax and trust in yourself and the universe.

 

The Magic square of the Sun is from Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa’s book, “De Occulta Philosophia

These repetitions of sixes are reminiscent of how the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is 666 nautical miles from the Kaaba in Mecca.
