A lot of talk about Orion these days...found this little strange read.
I found this pic of Orion strange.
if you look close - you see a strange creature perched hand held up as if projecting something.
Further confirmation of the Bible interpretation is found in mythology. Orion is the Mighty Hunter, the strong one. His aspect is so imposing in the sky, that in all peoples' legends he represents something great or giant.
In Greek mythology it was the vainglorious giant hunter Orion who boasted that no animal could be his match. His bragging excited the ire of Juno, who sent a scorpion to sting him mortally on his foot. In the sky, Orion is supposed to counter the attack of Taurus, the Bull (Venus). Also, according to the Greeks, the Pleiades were the Seven Daughters of the titan Atlas who were changed to doves when pursued by the giant Orion and finally were placed in the heavens. Before him (Orion) flee the Pleiades or the Singing Stars.
To the ancient Egyptians in the V Dynasty, the constellation of Orion was Sahu, hunting through the heavens for gods and men to rip apart and boil for food. The Hebrews knew it as Kesil, the Foolish or Self-Confident, or as Gibbor, the Giant, identified with Nimrod and tied to the heavens for impiety.
In the modern Arabic Orion is al-Babadur, the Strong, and al-Shuja, the Snake. In China the constellation is now Shen, to mix. Among the Buriats of Siberia Orion represents three wapiti being chased by the demon-hunter, Erlik-Khan, overlord of the underworld, and his three dogs. One of the wapiti has been wounded and is bleeding (red Betelgeuse). When the hunt ends, the world will cease to be.
A Peruvian story says this constellation is a criminal held in the heavens by two condors. In North Africa, the stars in Orion emerge from a muddy well, and Rigel, the last star to rise above the horizon, is the foot in the mud. To the Greeks, in addition to being the Mighty Hunter, Orion was called the Giant, the Warrior, the Cock's Foot, and the Double Ax.
From the time of Ovid and Hyginus, we have the story of how Orion was named. Hyrieus, Orion's father, had been childless, but he was a good man. One day he was visited by three strangers who were Zeus, Poseidon, and Hermes, in disguise, and he showed them unstinting hospitality. Granted a boon, he asked for a son, whereupon the three gods took an ox-hide and urinated on it. Hyrieus buried the hide according to instructions and, at the end of ten lunar months, Orion, or Urion after the fluid that made him, was born from the Earth.
The stranger-gods, the hero born of the liquid of the gods, the supernatural birth from the Earth: these are more serious matters than this almost flippant Roman myth makes them. Zeus was the sky god and could be symbolic of many planets in space, including the Earth. Poseidon was the god of the sea and is symbolic of Atlantis (Poseid) and Lemuria (Pan). Hermes was the winged god and messenger of other gods. The fact that the gods urinated in order to create Urion (later called Orion) shows that the waste of Earth and other planets (Zeus), and of Atlantis and Lemuria (Poseidon), and of angelic orders (Hermes), was used to populate originally the Orion worlds.
The "waste" were those souls who no longer could advance in these other areas. Remember, space friends have said: "To the slop we throw out we never return." The "slop" or "waste" was discharged or secreted into the Orion area--and the arriving souls had to begin the lessons of life over again. Only through countless experiences under the Orion vibrations could they discover the Great Path. It is these souls we are dealing with when we speak of The Intruders.
