Today modern Science and the Vatican would love for you to believe that Alchemy is a practice that focuses on altering base metals and turning them into the precious metal Gold. However this is simply not the case, although that makes a good story, the whole thing is a misdirection...Does anyone remember that movie with Nicholas Cage where he is fighting some guy that is stealing Davinci's secret to make lead into gold? Well its ridiculous that is part of that same misdirection Wikipedia people are feeding you. What alchemy really is, is the changing of substances into other substances, or the first form of chemistry you could say. Many main stream scientists have used ancient archaic and alchemical doctrines to come up with tonics and remedies... that are still used today. Lets talk about the Emerald Tablet. The Emerald Tablet was an actual tablet that contained the information on transmutation or the transformation of chemical and spiritual compounds both in real world situations, and within the human body to reach spiritual enlightenment.
Above is an artist rendition, of exactly how large this Emerald Tablet was supposed to be. Sir. Isaac Newton has translated this tablet into the following:
It is true without lying, certain and most true. That which is Below is like that which is Above and that which is Above is like that which is Below to do the miracles of the Only Thing. And as all things have been and arose from One by the mediation of One, so all things have their birth from this One Thing by adaptation. The Sun is its father; the Moon its mother; the Wind hath carried it in its belly; the Earth is its nurse. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into Earth. Separate the Earth from the Fire, the subtle from the gross, sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the Earth to the Heavens and again it descends to the Earth and receives the force of things superior and inferior. By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you. Its force is above all force, for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing. So was the world created. From this are and do come admirable adaptations, whereof the process is here in this. Hence am I called Hermes Trismegistus, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.
Notice how there is a reference to Hermes in his translation? Hermes is a Greek messenger to the gods in Greek mythology, but where did the idea for Hermes come from how did we know of his existence before this? The answer is simple and has been saved in Egyptian scrolls, in Egypt they called this "god like messenger" Thoth. Who reported directly to the Gods and was a mathematician, magician, and even astrologist, and calculator of the heavens.
Both of these characters are both one and the same, just named differently by different cultures. The Egyptians and the Greeks shared a lot of mystical information with each other and they knew a great deal of Alchemy as it was called back then. Lets talk more about Alchemy and the 7 operations in the alchemy of transformation.
The 7 Operations in the Alchemy of Transformation (and the Astrological signs that Rule them.)
- Aries - Calcination - Is the process in which a substance is burned or heated to the point of transformation. Think of a blacksmith heating metal to craft a sword.
- Cancer - Dissolution - This is the process of diluting a substance with water to bring forth another transformation of any given material. Think of rust on metal when it remains wet for too long.
- Scorpio - Separation - This is the filtering process of any excess waste materials that you are trying to remove from any given substance.
- Venus - Conjunction - This is the recombination of any elements that have been saved during any of the processes above, to produce some type of chemical or even magical result.
- Capricorn - Fermentation - This is the process of heating something and letting it sit for a while until the usually long process completes. Think of turning grapes into wine. That is the best way to look at this process, because its probably the most used.
- Virgo - Distillation - This is the boiling, and the condensation of the fermented result. Think of turning wine into Brandy. This is the perfect example.
- Taurus - Coagulation - Think of what your blood does to form a scar tissue over a wound, to prevent infection. Also blood clots are the result of your blood coagulating.
Now that we know all the 7 mystical forms of transformation, we can talk about the astrological rulers of certain metal alloys that really plays into alchemy on a magical level, not a physical level....
Gold - Dominated by the Sun.
Silver - Dominated by the Moon.
Copper - Dominated by Venus.
Iron - Dominated by Mars.
Tin - Dominated by Jupiter.
Mercury - Dominated by Mercury.
Lead - Dominated by Saturn.
The mystical powers that these metal alloys contain is far beyond our understanding in modern science or chemistry. Magic is a lost art that is only practiced in the inner circles of secret societies and protected with strange rituals and initiation ceremonies. The real metal thats turning into gold is inside you, all of the magic in alchemy goes on within your body on a daily basis. To be better in-tune with these things will give you greater health, and a greater understanding in both physics, chemistry, and spirituality. This in ancient times was often considered magic. I'm sure there are plenty of magic spells our greatest scientists couldn't even begin to understand because they don't have this ancient knowledge that has been withheld from the main stream.
The higher you get in masonic degrees, the more of this knowledge you come in contact with. We are all spiritual beings that need enlightenment, it is not for the select few, this is how they keep control over us, they understand more about our human bodies and spirits then we understand ourselves. They also understand the power of symbols, as I'm sure you have noticed the pictures i am posting have a profound effect on your brain. Tons of people right now are screaming OCCULT! When I'm trying to give you a deeper understanding of things I have figured out for myself, so please don't get in a pissing match with me. This is something I think the world should know. No more blind folds, no more stupid rituals that have no meaning except, to protect the grandmaster's secret. We all need to know.
Ok thats about it for this article, I think i explained enough information for now. Please leave comments with any questions and let me know what you think. I have really enjoyed researching this topic, and most of the time, the answers are VERY hard to find. I appreciate your attention......Love and Light.
