THE SECRETS OF THE SPHINX

The Sphinx faces East at the exact location where the Sun rises on the day of the vernal equinox (21 March). At sunrise on the vernal equinox around 10.500 B.C. the Sun aligned itself with the constellation Leo, its own celestial counterpart image in the sky ...

All of the significant stars and constellations along one side of the Milky Way in a 360 degrees view along the Milky Way are represented by some odd 50 pyramids along the Nile (representing the Milky Way on the ground) and include Sirius, Orion, the Pleiades, Andromeda, Pegasus and Canis Major.

With this discovery the ancient writings of Thoth (Hermes Trismegistus) who in the Emerald Tablets wrote ...

'Egypt is an image of the heavens ... The whole cosmos dwells here' ...  

These words are coming to life when we realize that all of the pyramids are the fulfilment of the Hermetic principle - 'As Above So Below'.

The Sphinx-Leo connection becomes undeniable when we view the Giza plateau from above. The angle between the Sphinx and the pyramids of Kufhu and Kahfre is the same angle on the ground as the angle between the Orion belt and the sign of Leo in the sky. While the Sphinx is gazing at the Nile, Leo is gazing at the Milky Way. This is compelling evidence that indeed the Sphinx is symbolic to its counterpart in the sky...

In ancient times the Great Pyramid was covered by highly polished limestone casing stones that gave the pyramid a shining appearance like a big glittering diamond in the dessert. The ancients referred to it as ‘Ikhet, meaning the ‘Glorious Light’. In summertime the reflections of the pyramid could be seen from miles away. Its mirroring properties were enhanced by its concave structure of the faces. Each of the four faces of the pyramid are not perfectly flat but are slightly indented and curved to form a huge parabolic mirror reflecting the Sun’s rays.

The significance of concavity of the faces in the construction of the pyramid can only be understood when we come to understand that the North face of the pyramid reflects the sunlight in between two critical positions during the tropical year when the Sun culminates over the Great Pyramid at noon. These critical positions that determine the start and end of the sunlight reflection correspond with the position of the Sun in the signs Leo and Taurus in the tropical Zodiac ...

As the Sun starts to rise from its lowest position in the sky on the winter solstice point it reaches a critical height in the skies where the sunrays illuminating the South face of the pyramid will be reflected horizontally such that they can be observed by a spectator on the South side of the pyramid. This is the moment that the Great Pyramid starts to reflect the sunrays by its concave face. When the ascent of the Sun progresses the Sun finally reaches a point in the sky where it will shine over the top of the pyramid and starts to illuminate the North face of the pyramid as well. This happens shortly before spring (vernal equinox). When the ascend of the Sun progresses it reaches a point where the sunrays will be reflected off horizontally from the North face of the pyramid. This is when the reflected sunlight can be observed North of the pyramid.

The Sun finally comes to a standstill at the summer solstice after which it starts to descend again. The process of illumination of the pyramid now reverses. First the horizontal reflection of the sunrays on the North face seizes and next just before autumn (autumn equinox) the complete illumination of the north face seizes. When the Sun reaches this position, spectators North of the pyramid will see the pyramid starting to shine like a crystal.

The reflection of the sunlight by the Great Pyramid could have been observed even today if the casing stones were still in place. This reflection is no coincidence and exists due to the unique relations between the latitude of the Great Pyramid (29° 58’ 51"), the alignment to the four cardinal points (North, South, East West, the slope angle of the faces of the Great Pyramid (51° 50’ 34") and the obliquity of the Earth axis (23° 26’)

 

 

To get an idea of the precision that went into the construction of the Great Pyramid and the delicacy of the parameters mentioned above, consider its alignment to the 4 cardinal points.

The meridian running through the Great Pyramid deviates from the perfect North-South meridian by 3 arc minutes (3/60 part of a degree). With all our modern technology this precision couldn’t even be achieved in the construction of the Greenwich Observatory in London that marks the Prime Meridian of the world with an inaccuracy of 9 arc minutes and is therefore three times less accurate than the Great Pyramid ... 

With this stunning accuracy in the back of our minds we can start to appreciate the accuracy that went into the design of this sunlight reflection phenomena of the Great Pyramid.

The Sun's positions in the tropical Zodiac which correspond to the Sun’s daily culminations (at noon) over the Great Pyramid during a tropical year can be charted as follows:

Not only does this chart represent the Hexagram, it also represents the correlation between the Great Pyramid and the constellations Leo and Taurus are ...

The critical points of the sunlight reflection on the Zodiac correspond with the tropical Zodiacal coordinates 15 degrees Taurus (reflection start) and 15 degree Leo (reflection end) ...

One could argue that this phenomenon of the sunlight reflection by the Great Pyramid and its relation to the 15 degrees Taurus and Leo positions is pure happenstance, but it becomes hardly unlikely when we take into account that this coincidence happens to depend on the perfect combination of the pyramid’s latitude, slope angle, obliquity of the Earth axis and the pyramid’s alignment to the cardinal points! So it seems that the Great Pyramid has been intentionally linked to the astrological signs of both Leo and Taurus!

The discovered connections of the Great Pyramid to the constellation of Leo and Taurus as discussed in this article are not coincidental but were carefully designed into the overall design of the Giza plateau.

The Giza Pyramid’s Leo/Taurus connection can now be summarized as follows ... 

1. The Giza plateau represents the Belt of Orion on the ground according to the Hermetic principle ‘As Above So Below’ at the Age of Leo as discovered by Hancock and Bauval and recently confirmed by Wayne Hershel.

2. The Sphinx symbolizes the 4 cardinal point of the Zodiac Leo, Taurus, Aquarius and Scorpio but its main appearance is that of a lion (Leo).

3. The Sphinx aligned with the constellation Leo at 10.500 BC on the vernal equinox

4. The Great Pyramid aligned with Sirius, Orion, Beta Ursor Minor and Alpha Draconis when the vernal equinox was in the constellation Taurus.

5. The geometry (angles) of the Sphinx and the pyramids corresponds with the geometry of Leo and the Orion belt respectively.

6. The Great Pyramid is connected to the signs of Leo and Taurus by means of the reflection of the sunlight. The reflection is triggered when the Sun reaches the midpoint of the signs Taurus and Leo on the tropical Zodiac

The sign of Leo may has been incorporated into the overall design of the Giza plateau as a reference to the date 10.500 BC for the construction of the Great Pyramid as shown by the research of Hancock, Bauval and Schoch and independently corroborated by the great psychic Edgar Cayce who mentioned this date as the construction date of the Great Pyramid.

The 15 degrees tropical Taurus may be a symbolic hint to the centre of the constellation Taurus in the sky where we find the Pleiades behind the horns and the neck of the celestial bull in the sky! The Temple of Hathor in Dendera is showing a Solar Disc placed on the neck of the celestial bull. According to Wayne Herschel the Solar Disc represents a G class Sun-like star near Pleiades that the ancients wants us to look for the builders of the Giza plateau.

So while Leo may represent a clue as to when the pyramids were build, Taurus is leading us to the builders themselves ... A mystery star near the Pleiades in Taurus is encoded within the Giza starmap which represents the star of the solar system where the builders of the Giza monuments could be located.

The discovery of this star map is expanding rapidly since the discovery of the same star map at Stonehenge, Angkor (South East Asia), Maya pyramid in Tikal (Guatemala), the Inca Puma of Cuzco (Peru), the bull painting in the Lascaux cave (France) and even the pyramids in the Cydonia region on Mars ...

If we now turn the hour hand on the precession clock half an hour forwards from the Age of Leo we end up in our Current Era ...

The ingenious ancient architects of the Giza plateau may have left us also a monument of time, a precession clock and marker to our own New Age where we have finally reached the scholarly maturity to decode their mysteries and awaken to a new reality, the fact that the 'Gods of the Heavens' in the Ancient Mythologies were not 'gods' at all, but were beings of flesh and blood who came from the Stars and walked among men to create these magnificent and majestic monuments ...
