Last week on The Secret Sun I looked at the news that The X-Files was returning to TV and tried to unpack the recent revelations that the 1997 Heaven's Gate cult suicides may well have been inspired by an episode of that series, the Mytharc mindbomb, "Red Museum. " Specifically, the Gate may have seen themselves as "walk-ins", wandering alien spirits who take possession of human beings who have reached a crisis in their lives and have lost the will to live.

A book called The Kybalion: A Study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece by Three Initiates was published in Chicago in 1912. It presented seven fundamental working principles of Hermeticism. But, what is Hermeticism? At the base of the occult tarot and especially the tarot of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Builders of the Adytum (BOTA) lies a philosophical system or religious philosophy. It derives from a series of anonymous writers who used the nom de plume Hermes Trismegistus (Thrice-Blessed), a composite of the Greek Hermes, Roman Mercury, and their Egyptian counterpart, Thoth.

In the 2nd and 3rd centuries C.E., the set of writings known as the Corpus Hermeticum brought about a brief renaissance of pagan thought. The writings are mostly in the form of dialogs between Hermes Trismegistus or Tot (Thoth) and a student seeking Wisdom.

What is Astrology? Astrology is the science of finding connection between those of us on the Earth and the Cosmos. It follows the patterns of movement by the planets and stars and assigns meanings to them that relate to human motivation and consciousness. Astrology is not a simple meaning like what you read in the horoscope section of the newspaper. A true astrological report takes into account not only the Sun sign (what you get in the paper), but the placements of all the planets of our solar system and sometimes other celestial bodies as well in relation to your birth time.

When all these meanings are compiled, it becomes a very complex and detailed description of a person’s profile.
