"The Twelfth Day of Aquarius
Cosmic Sabbath, Reign of Messiah, The Time of Secrecy
Aquarius and opposite Leo
Twelfth Day Circle

   As stated at the end of Chapter Six the interpretation of the Kabbalah had been kept secret for nineteen centuries, since the entrance into the Aquarian Age in 1950, those texts have been published in Jerusalem. This can not be explained as superstitious aberration but only to the men following the guiding thread of the Tradition. The Tradition had now come to the dawn of a new 'Cosmic Sabbath,' the 'Reign of the Messiah.'

   "Aquarius is both a constellation and the twelfth of a circle known as a sign. Entering Aquarius means entering the period during which astronomers will see the sun rise in Aquarius on the day of the vernal equinox. The phenomenon of the precession of the equinoxes is involved in this fact. The equinoctial sun has been rising in the sign of Aquarius since 1950. In this interpretation, we are in the 'Golden Age' of prophecies. The equinoctial sun will not begin rising in the constellation of Aquarius until about the year 2700. In this interpretation, neither you nor I will see the prophesied 'Golden Age'."
   From the "The Coming of the Gods" by Jean Sendy, page 69.

   Medieval tradition saw the period of Aquarius as the end of the 'time of secrecy.' The Kabbalah texts were not to be published until the approach of the 'fulfillment of the time,' the revelation is drawn from the Tradition itself, that the time of secrecy has ended. From the depths of time the Kabbalah texts deduced that in the 'time of Aquarius,' men would transmute metals, make their voices travel all over the earth, move mountains, making flying machines and walk on the moon.

   Moses introduced the Kabbalah and called it 'shalshelet ha-kabala,' meaning 'chain of the Tradition.' The changing of so much as a single letter of the sacred texts is the abomination of abominations, one of the most infamous sins. It states that when the "time has come," man will be able to know and understand what 'aleph' symbolizes. This first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, represents the One, the Unity of Principle that is ineffable for men. The Tradition promises a "bow" set in "the clouds" to those persons who have maintained its chain.

alpha and omega The first and the last: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (Revelation 1:8).

   The Bible is a book with Three Promises. The Old Covenant, the New Covenant, and the Revelation. These promises represent the Old Testament 'which was' the beginning till 100 B.C., the New Testament 'which is' starts at Christ's birth till the time of secrecy, and last to the end of time 'which is to come' in a New Age for the Second Coming.

   Aquarius is typical of man's last grand goal of the soul's future material state with lightning speed in all organic forms with its primary origin in water, and its celestial urn heading towards the deathless courage of the Lion. Because unstable as water everything can excel in this changeable, movable sign.

   The beginnings of this Age occurred to Abram in the Age of the Bull. Old forms must perish in order that life may continue on beyond them, keeping step with human progress and with cyclic necessities of evolution of humankind.

Aquarius and the symbol of the Phoenix
to rise renewed from its ashes (life, rebirth, and immortality). Others believe its life cycle was as long as 97,200 years (see Denderah). It was also associated with the sun god in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (City of the Sun). The Greeks took their idea of the Phoenix from the Egyptians as the sun, which dies in its flames each evening and emerges each morning.

   It is the time that Daniel prophesied, "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." In Daniel 12:4, Daniel was told by an angel that his visions would not be understood by him or anyone until the end of this era approaches, and then knowledge of this prophecy would become wide-spread. It will be a time when everything shall be revealed. This is the Age that the biblical people were interested, because its beginning concerned them directly. This would be the whole, entire Great Cycle of the Precession of the Equinoxes. Most contemporary prophets concern themselves in this Age. Others believe that, near the time of the end, "many shall run to and fro," which means to scrutinize the word as in running through every page.
