Horned Ones of Orion & Saturn

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open Luke 8:17

I have spent many years perusing books on Alchemy, mysticism and symbolism, and what strikes me most, is how much esoteric ‘imagery’ (knowledge) seems to be showing us the ‘interconnectedness’ of the stars and earth. When we consider Alchemy, along with various ancient scriptures of antiquity, there appears to be a common connection between what I call the ‘Star Man’ - Orion and Saturn. In this blog I will offer some esoteric background to the imagery projected by 'stars' (celebrities), especially those who perform symbolic ritualistic art for the masses at global events.

Hunter Star (Saturn) Man

A classic image of the Star Man is the Assyrian god, Ashur, who also resembles Orion. The image of Ashur with his bow and raised right hand is similar to the classic image of Orion (see below). He is also visually positioned inside an orb or wheel (a door) and his wings, along with this circular device, resemble Saturn.

The word ‘Ashur’ is derived from the Arabic word for Sirius, ‘Al Shi’ra’ and the ancient Assyrian city of Ashur. Here we have another warrior god who travels in some sort of sky wheel or ship, with its winged disk (displaying horns) enclosed by four circles revolving around a middle circle. Ancient depictions of Saturn, according to some researchers, not least.

David Talbot, show how it was often drawn as a winged disc. The crescent and the circle com- bined is another symbol for the ancient image of Saturn. Here, once again, we see the symbol- ism of the horned celestial deity, which is of importance to what I have described as an Orion Cult in Orion's Door. Another deity is called ‘Hadad’, from the Levant (now Syria and Lebanon), the son of ‘Nanna’ or ‘Sin’ and ‘Ningal Hadad’ who was an important figure. He was introduced to Mesopotamia by the Amorites, where he became known as the Akkadian (Assyrian-Babylonian) god, Hadad or Adad. Hadad was also called ‘Pidar’, ‘Rapiu’ and ‘Baal-Zephon’, often shown holding a club (like the early depcitions of Orion) and thunderbolt and wearing a bull-horned headdress, see below.

In the second millennium BCE, the King of Aleppo (Syria) called himself ‘the beloved of Hadad’.The god Ba’al is another variant of Hadad; both represent the combination of Orion, with Saturn and Taurus as celestial figures. Baal-Saturn, or ‘Ba’al Hammonis’ was another Romanised deity worshipped in Carthage and North Africa. The ‘combined deity’ shows us again the connection between two celestial deities – Orion and Saturn. Both archetypes

were depicted as a bearded, older man with curling ram’s horns. The warrior ruler, Alexandria the Great, also saw himself as Baal Hammon (Zephon).

Just as Orion, the celestial man, giant hunter and guardian of the stars was ‘placed’ to hunt all of earth’s creatures. The myths associated with Orion included the archetype of the artist and the war god, Mars; both connected through the ‘art of war’. The symbols of Orion (the giant first man), Saturn (the bringer of time and death) and Mars (the originator of war), all combine in the post-flood world age I call: the Age of Orion.

The ‘Unnatural’ God of the ‘Doorway’

In Lakota and Dakota Sioux, Orion is the horned giant ‘Haokah’, celebrated through tribal dances to this god-figure. Like Morpheus in Greek myth, Haokah was referred to as the ‘unnatural god,’ the ruler of dreams (see below).

Haokah was simultaneously revered and feared among the Sioux as a deity that could use magic and lightning to destroy worlds. The Thunder-beings honoured by the Lakota also connect to the stars of Orion, not least Betelgeuse. Thunder, or more importantly, ‘lightning’, was a weapon attributed to gods connected to Orion; so was the Sacred Clown, or the Fool, said to come from Betelgeuse by some of the American Indian tribes. See the movie, Beetlejuce (below) for a modern day take on the celestial 'dark' clown from another dimension.

The Rig Veda refers to the Orion Constellation as ‘Mrigashirsha’ (the deer’s head), or the horned hunter, often depicted as the classic image of the shaman wearing antlers. In Hindu astrology, Orion is connected to both Mrigashirsha and Arudra (‘teardrop’) and relates to the great hunter – the stag-man. Above the shoulder star of Orion other stars are visible; these are Mrigashirsha, meaning deer’s head, also known as ‘Agrahayani’. Their brightest star in this cluster is called ‘Heka’, a bluish star more than 1000 light-years away. Slightly below Heka, two stars are seen: ‘Khad Posterior’, the brighter one to the side of Betelgeuse (the shoulder star) of Orion, and ‘Khad Prior’ on the other side. Khad Posterior is like our sun, a yellow star, at a distance of about 120 light-years, whereas Khad Prior is a very distant bluish star nearly 1000 light-years away. ‘Heka’ (Haokah) also means a ‘White Spot’; Khad-al-Geuse means ‘Cheek of the Giant’. All of these stars in Orion make up what the Sioux call Haokah, the 'god of the doorway' Orion's Door. The same themes are attributed to Osiris in Egypt, Orion in Greece and ‘Shiva-Rudra’ in India. Herne the Hunter and Pan are the most apparent Pagan figures associated with the horned hunter, and both Orion and Saturn.

Orion & the Horned Ones

In Sumerian mythology, Orion was called URU AN-NA, which means “the light of heaven”, which was specifically part of the Gilgamesh, myths. Sumerians associated Orion with the story of their hero, Gilgamesh, fight- ing the bull, represented by Taurus. Their name for the constellation Taurus was GUD AN-NA, or ‘the bull of heaven.’ Both Gilgamesh and the Bull of Heaven were often shown with horns and both were empowered by invisible forces.

There are also ancient records of a mysterious race of beings associated with what Hopi Indians call the ‘Two Horned Clan’ (see above). In the ancient world the Hopi talked of ‘unnatural gods’, the ‘rulers of dreams’ as having horns. The Hopi said these figures were of the Two Horned Clan, or the ‘Two Horn’ and ‘One Horn’ Societies. According to the Hopi, this clan, along with the Unicorn and Bow Clans, perform some of the most significant and oldest ceremonies in their calendar. The worship of the ‘Unktehi’, through to later buffalo-reverence by the plains tribes of South and North Dakota in the USA, are also examples of the importance of Orion/Taurus worship. The stars became intrinsically woven into Native American myths and legends connected to Orion and his stellar neighbors, Taurus and Monoceros (the unicorn). Orion’s lion skin shield and the Monoceros become the ‘Lion and the Unicorn’ symbolism featured on the royal coat of arms. The ‘Qilin’ (‘Kirin’ in Japanese) is a mythical horned and hooved chimerical creature known in Chinese and other East Asian legend to be connected to the Monoceros.

Horned ‘Stars’

The number of celebrities I have seen ‘wearing horns’, or having hair shaped to look like horns, is almost beyond coincidence.

Can it all be simply chance? Possibly? However, the symbolism itself could relate to what the Hopi called the ‘horned gods’, or ‘horned clans’, as well as the Christian devil; along with the ‘magic and power’ connected to occult symbolism associated with both Orion and Saturn. I would go one stage further and say that horned ‘non-physical’ entities, often possess the bizarre and ‘ego-driven’ no matter what status in life. People can become vessels for forces ‘unseen’, which is what possession in the religious sense relates to. The horns here could also be ‘expressions’ of the ‘light of lucifer’ (or Prometheus) and ‘the light’, I would suggest, is the metaphysical ‘light of lucifer’ (Lux), the ‘Shining Ones’ and the invisible war between opposing interstellar forces. The stars (celebrities) become vessels for unseen forces. See the latest Grammy 'unholy' performance by Sam Smith for a taste of such symbolism.

The Horned ‘M’ Treatment

Time [Satrun] Magazine has utilised images of world leaders framed in front of the letter ‘M’ on several editions, so to play on the theme of ‘horns’. The Clintons, Bushes, as well as Obama and Donald Trump, in 2016, to name but a few, have also had the ‘M’ horned treatment on the magazine’s cover (see below).

The imagery could be purely accidental but seems to ‘place’ symbolic ‘horns’ on those featured. The effect is similar to the horned Moses, the ‘shining world leader’ and also a symbolic connection to the ‘enlightened ones’ - the bloodlines of the ‘Shining Ones’- the Watchers.

Sex, Drugs &Mind Manipulation The use of sex as an image of both chastity and promiscuity by pop idols and movie stars is seen time and time again. This is part of the double-speak language, one that uses images, icons and words to influence thoughts and behaviour. Our young are bombarded with images of sex in films, music videos, on the internet and advertising from such a young age that it must have an effect on how they build relationships and ultimately see themselves in relation to others. The media industry cannot create a total personality change in everyone, but its main function is to increasingly desensitise us to violence, pornography and vivid images relating to ‘death cult’ imagery. The ‘Il Cornuto devil’s horns sign’ is another symbol (code) used by Cult celebrities and leaders to communicate with each other, and is a sign that is often given by rock stars, world leaders and of course, supporters of the Texas Rangers.

There has been way too many expressions of this hand sign and horn wearring by a wide range of celebrities and world leaders over the years, to just palm it off as simply rock and roll. The Il Cornuto devil’s horns sign seems to have originated in the ancient world, like the demons these images relate to and are found on ritual artifacts especially connected to human sacrifice (see above).
