Nostradamus' Prophetic Letter To Our Future
Gnosis. It is achieved by coming to an inner understanding with oneself of the Mysteries which have been revealed by those with advanced knowledge of them. There is no greater mystery than that of the human spirit, its soul, and body - and what are the fates and destinies of all who have ever inhabited the Earth.
In serious astrology, the learner should strive to attain gnosis. Where events of world history is brought deeper into context by spiritual knowledge, and where the mysteries that surround the spirit and future of humanity can be understood as truth to guide oneself and others through life on earth.
The current world climate of extreme religious fundamentalism, and radicalism, or that of atheism and humanism; is contrasted by dire warnings, prophecies, and promises of salvation through gnosis, by Jesus Christ in his discourses found in the Pistis Sophia.
Christ warns against what he calls the "doctrines of error" - false spiritualism, and its practices, which he says in the Pistis Sophia, there is a very heavy price to pay by those who teach, participate, and believe in these false doctrines.
Be they forms of fundamentalism, radicalism, zealotry, orthodoxy, humanism, or atheism - which Christ says is a sure ticket that leads straight into the very "mouths of hell itself."
There are false doctrines here as well for those who would misuse astrology to mislead and deceive others, or of psychics who say they can "speak to dead loved ones," or those who "channel spirits," or use "dark magic" to those who say they can conjure up evil spirits to those who say that they worship the devil.
According to the words of Christ in the Pistis Sophia: all of this are roads to perdition for anyone who partakes in these "doctrines of error."
This is why knowledge of the Mysteries of Light is so important for those who practice the celestial science of astrology without falling into false doctrines, but who remain true to gnosis, while using their gifts, talents and skills to be of good, healthy service to others who are also on the path of Light.
In Buddhist teachings, this is called The Way of the Bodhisattva, which is surprisingly similar to the teachings of Christ who urges all to achieve mental and spiritual gnosis -
- 1. The benefits of Bodhicitta, or, the wish to reach full enlightenment for others too
- 2. Purifying bad deeds
- 3. Adopting the Spirit of Enlightenment
- 4. Using Conscientiousness
- 5. Guarding Awareness
- 6. The practice of Patience
- 7. The practice of Joyous effort
- 8. The practice of Meditative concentration
- 9. The perfection of Wisdom
- 10. Dedication
- Dāna pāramī : generosity, giving of oneself
- Sīla pāramī : virtue, morality, proper conduct
- Nekkhamma pāramī : renunciation
- Paññā pāramī : transcendental wisdom, insight
- Viriya (vīriya) pāramī : energy, diligence, vigor, effort
- Khanti pāramī : patience, tolerance, forbearance, acceptance, endurance
- Sacca pāramī : truthfulness, honesty
- Adhiṭṭhāna (adhitthana) pāramī : determination, resolution
- Mettā pāramī : loving-kindness
- Upekkhā (upekhā) pāramī : equanimity, serenity
According to Christ, the resulting stains of sins are incurred from "counterfeit spirits" that attach themselves like leeches to every human soul - inclining them to sin in order to trap them, and prevent their ascension to their true home.
It was for this reason Christ said he came into the world - to cause a "division," - so that human spirits and souls would be set free to ascend to their original home - the Treasury of Light, or, what is called Heaven.
Christ outlines and names the evil spirits, powers and principalities of the kinds of outer darknesses, and how one can be saved with gnosis, or knowledge, of the Mysteries of Light.
His warnings in the Pistis Sophia are detailed, and serve to awaken the human spirit to travel on what Christ says is the one true path to salvation - gnosis - and away from the doctrines of error, and ravages of the material Earth eras. This is in accordance with the forecasted challenges to come in the "end times," prophesied by mundane astrologers of yore who were also called seers, or the prophets.
In the Pistis Sophia, Christ says this Light World is home to all true human beings, but without salvation; sinning souls are doomed to suffer eternally in the "mouths of" various levels of "outer darknesses," known as Hades, or Hell, which again, Christ outlines in amazing detail in the following chapters.
In the Pistis Sophia, Christ outlines how to save oneself with gnosis, while describing what happens to a human when born, and how to renounce the world to avoid falling into what Christ calls the "exceedingly evil" levels of darkness awaiting souls, according to the specific types of one's own sins.
It is an amazing read for sure, for anyone who has never heard of, or read the Pistis Sophia.
Yet, in it, Christ urges all readers to "not cease seeking day or night," until one learns of the Mysteries of Light, renounces the cares, delights and sins of the world, repents, and awakens through gnosis to the "Truth."
The discourses of Christ speak of a human's potential for salvation and their "inheritances" before the number of "perfect souls" is completed, and the "Gates of the Treasury of Light" are shut for good - leaving those locked outside the gates to their own brands of particular fates into the multiple levels of "evil darknesses" which Christ describes repeatedly throughout the Pistis Sophia.
If this is not accomplished, then the prophecies will come true in the most horrifying ways.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.'
The Cardinal Crisis of 2010-2014
I, and other astrologers have been writing for some time about the Cardinal Crisis transits, a powerful formation of the large outer body planets at key sensitive seasonal points relative to the Earth.
These planets, as of April 2010, are now moving into position for their T-Square configurations of 2010, in the months of July and August.
Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto will be in the tropical signs of Aries, Libra and Capricorn - forming a tight series of global transit squares and oppositions to one another.
Cardinal signs act on impulse, and can spark hasty actions, and violent reactions based on reactionary emotional responses. The cardinal T-squares will revolve worldwide, and can also spark natural disasters, as well as personal and public confrontations very easily.
During the approach of these squares and oppositions which will form the Cardinal T-square configuration, expect to observe a wide range of unfavorable global events: from frequent large magnitude earthquakes, to increasing international tensions, large-scale disasters and accidents, along with the lingering effects of the global economic crisis ongoing since 2007.
The Cardinal Crisis transits of 2010 call on all of us to relax, and be calm, and not to engage in impulsive acts, thoughts, and reactionary emotional responses so common to strong cardinal inclinations.
The best antidote is not to react negatively to these transits, as many people will be inclined by them, but to rather plan ahead, be calm, and to quietly repose; allowing the strong cardinal inclinations to be neutralized through positive thoughts, patience, love, understanding, as well as non-impulsive actions wherever possible.
Domestic & Safety Thoughts help greatly as antidotes to these particular planetary tensions, such as caring for and helping the weak, those in need, children, friends, family, neighbors, animals, and plants. This diffuses the negativity of this year's powerful cardinal inclinations.
Those who open themselves and others up to dangers through impulse and hasty actions that could have easily been avoided with prudence and common sense, are playing around with powerful planetary forces, and surely will get themselves and others seriously hurt, or worse.
So be very careful this year with your choices and your actions. Think before acting.
Patience, tolerance, clear thinking, common sense, and practicality is strongly advised.
I also urge those reading my forecasts to remain particularly aware of this coming summer in the northern hemisphere, and to refrain from extended travel from now through to the end of 2011, if at all possible.
This is not the summer to take chances, or risks, but rather to play it safe. This is not your normal traditional summer season of fun in the sun. By mid-July, many will know this to be true, and by August, many will be certain it is true.
The weather and climate will continue to lean towards the extremes in 2010, with extreme heat this spring throughout in the northern hemisphere, floods, and odd weather events. Expect this summer season of 2010 to be shorter than normal, because it will have arrived earlier than normal with above average temperatures during April, May, and June.
Also expect a long, wet, and warmer-than-normal fall season that extends well into January 2011. Winter will arrive later than normal for most regions in North America - according to my calculations. True winter conditions will not arrive until late January/early February 2011, and continue through the months of March and April 2011.
From now (April 2010) through the summer months, be especially careful in and around bodies of water, and mind yourself around machines, boats, cruise ships, cars, recreation vehicles, and the like, as well as when participating in sporting activities.
Accidents to the head, face, legs and feet are particularly highlighted this summer under the cardinal inclination transits.
Travel transits are already highly unfavorable, as is exposing oneself to danger during the tense months ahead. This is a very good year to stick close to home and allow these powerful cardinal inclinations of 2010 to pass by.
Next summer of 2011 is a better vacationing season than the summer of 2010 in the northern hemisphere. Wait another year to take that extended travel vacation if at all possible. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones out there.
The inclinations of the cardinal transits will extend from 2010 to the year 2014. Therefore, expect the global inclinations to remain strong among the transpersonal planets through these years, as the world transitions between eras and generations - leaving further behind the latter half of the post-modern era of the 20th century, and delving deeper into this new 21st century.
In mundane astrology, we have a saying: 'Foretold is forewarned.'
One of those prophets who foretold the future was the mundane astrologer Michel de Nostradamus. Born in France under a Capricorn Sun in the year 1503, and himself a gnostic, Nostradamus prophesied the coming of the last anti-Christ who will attempt to lead humanity away from their inheritances of Light through deception, greed, arrogance and evil.
Nostradamus also warns debunkers, skeptics, and pop-culture astrologers through a curse:
INCANTATION OF ASTROLOGICAL LAW AGAINST INEPT CRITICS
O vast Rome, thy ruin approaches,
Not of thy walls, of thy blood and substance:
The one harsh in letters will make a very horrible notch,
Pointed steel driven into all up to the hilt.
Century X, Quatrain 78
Sudden joy to sudden sadness,
It will occur at Rome for the graces embraced:
Grief, cries, tears, weeping, blood, excellent mirth,
Contrary bands surprised and trussed up.
Century X, Quatrain 74
The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
Not far from the great millennial age,
When the buried will go out from their tombs.
By Michel Nostradamus
- Preface: The Centuries -
Greetings and happiness to Cesar Nostradamus my son ~
"Your late arrival, Cesar Nostradame, my son, has caused me a
great deal of time in constant nightly watches so that after
my death you might be left a memorial of your father,
revealing in writing that which the Divine Spirit has made
known to me through the revolutions of the stars,
to the common benefit of mankind.
Since it has pleased the immortal God that you should have
appeared on this earth but recently, and your years cannot yet
said to be coupled, your weak understanding is incapable of
presently absorbing that which I must needs record of the future.
Because all these things proceeded from the divine power of the great eternal God, from whom all goodness flows.
And it can happen that the prophet, by means of the perfect light of the prophecy appearing before him, thinks he sees things divine as well as human; but this cannot be, for the effects of future prediction extend far.
I caution you especially against the vanity of the more execrable magic, condemned of yore by the Holy Scriptures and the Canons of the Church.
Thus, so that you might not be led astray in the future in a search for the perfect transformation of silver, or of gold, or of incorruptible metals under the earth, or hidden in the sea - I have reduced them to ashes.
I beseech the Immortal God that He will be willing to endow you with long life in good and prosperous happiness."

[THE CONCLUSION OF ANOTHER BOOK]
"That man who has found the words of these mysteries in divine truth, is the first in truth and like unto him [sc. the First, i.e. the Ineffable], for through those words and mysteries . . . and the universe itself standeth through that First.

- CHAPTER 106 -
- CHAPTER 107 -
And if they still at a time of repentance renounce the whole world and the whole matter therein and all the sins of the world, and they are in entire submission to the mysteries of the Light, no mystery can hearken unto them nor forgive their sins, save this same mystery of the Ineffable, which hath mercy on every one and forgiveth every one his sins."
- CHAPTER 109 -
- CHAPTER 110 -
- CHAPTER 111 -
And the soul draweth into itself from the portion of the soul which is in the delights.
And the counterfeiting spirit draweth into itself from the portion of the evil which is in the delights and in its lusts.
The soul on the other hand senseth to seek after the region of righteousness which is mixed, which is the region of the co-mixture.
The counterfeiting spirit on the other hand seeketh after all evils and lusts and all sins; the body on the contrary senseth nothing unless it taketh up force out of the matter.
And the counterfeiting spirit leadeth away the soul and compels it continually to do all its lawless deeds, all its mischief and all its sin, and is persistently allotted to the soul and is hostile to it, and making it do all this evil and all these sins.
- CHAPTER 112 -
"And the destiny and the counterfeiting spirit follow that soul. Because the counterfeiting spirit is bound to it with the seals and the bonds of the rulers, it followeth thus that soul which travelleth on the ways with the counterfeiting spirit.
"It uttereth the mystery of the undoing of all the bonds and all the seals with which the rulers have bound the counterfeiting spirit to the soul.
And when the soul uttereth the mystery of the undoing of the seals, straightway the bonds of the seals which are bound in the counterfeiting spirit to the soul undo themselves.
And when the soul uttereth the mystery of the undoing of the seals, straightway the counterfeiting spirit undoeth itself and ceaseth to be assigned to the soul.
And in that moment the soul uttereth a mystery and restraineth the counterfeiting spirit and the destiny and dischargeth them which follow it.
But no one of them is in its power; but it is in their power.
And in that moment the receivers of that soul come with the mysteries which it hath received, come and snatch that soul out of the hands of the retributive receivers, and the [latter] receivers go back to the works of the rulers for the purpose of the economy of the leading-forth of the souls.
And the receivers of that soul on the other hand who belong to the Light, become wings of light for that soul and become vestures of light for it and they do not lead it into the Chaos, because it is not lawful to lead into the Chaos souls which have received mysteries, but they lead it on the way of the rulers of the midst.
And when it reacheth the rulers of the midst, those rulers meet the soul, they being in great fear and violent fire and with different faces, in a word in great immeasurable fear.
And in that moment the soul uttereth the mystery of their apology. And they are exceedingly afraid and fall on their faces, being in fear of the mystery which it hath uttered, and of their apology.
'I come not to your regions from this moment onwards. I have become a stranger unto you for ever, being about to go unto the region of my inheritance.'
And when the soul shall have said this, the receivers of the Light fly with it on high and lead it into the æons of the Fate, it giving every region its apology and its seals; which I will tell you at the expansion of the universe.
And it giveth the counterfeiting spirit to the rulers and telleth them the mystery of the bonds with which it is bound to it, and sayeth unto them:
'There have ye your counterfeiting spirit! I come not to your region from this moment onwards. I have become a stranger unto you for ever.'
And it giveth the apology of all the rulers of all the regions of the Left, whose collective apologies and seals I will one day tell you when I shall tell you the expansion of the universe.
And the Virgin of Light and also the seven other virgins of the Light together prove that soul and find together their signs in it and their seals and their baptisms and their chrism.
And the Virgin of Light sealeth that soul and the receivers of the Light baptize that soul and give it the spiritual chrism; and every one of the virgins of the Light sealeth it with her seals.
And moreover the receivers of the Light hand it over to the great Sabaōth, the Good, who is at the gate of the Life in the region of those of the Right, who is called 'Father.'
And that soul giveth him the glory of his songs of praise and his seals and his apologies.
And Sabaōth, the Great and Good, sealeth it with his seals.
And the soul giveth its science and the glory of the songs of praise and the seals to the whole region of those of the Right.
They all seal it with their seals; and Melchisedec, the great Receiver of the Light who is in the region of those of the Right, sealeth that soul and all the receivers of Melchisedec seal that soul and lead it into the Treasury of the Light.
"And it giveth the glory and the honor and the laud of the songs of praise and all the seals of all the regions of the Light.
- CHAPTER 113 -
And it giveth the destiny to its region, and it giveth the counterfeiting spirit to its own region, and it giveth the apology and the seals to every one of the rulers who are on the ways, and it giveth the honour and the glory and the laud of the seals and the songs of praise to all those of the region of the Light.'
- CHAPTER 114 -
Every soul which cometh forth out of the body and travelleth on the way with the counterfeiting spirit and findeth not the mystery of the undoing of all the seals and all the bonds, so that it may undo itself from the counterfeiting spirit which is bound to it; that soul which hath not found mysteries of the Light and hath not found the mysteries of detachment from the counterfeiting spirit which is bound to it.
- CHAPTER 115 -And Mary answered and said: "My Lord, in what type then do the baptisms forgive sins?
I heard thee say: 'The retributive servitors follow the soul, being witnesses to it for all the sins which it committeth, that they may convict it in the judgments.'
Now, therefore, my Lord, do the mysteries of the baptisms wipe out the sins which are in the hands of the retributive servitors, so that they forget them?
Now, therefore, my Lord, tell unto us the type, how they forgive sins; nay, we desire to know it with sureness."
And the Saviour answered and said unto Mary: "Finely hast thou spoken.
The servitors indeed are they who bear witness to all sins; but they abide in the judgments, seizing the souls and convicting all the souls of sinners who have received no mysteries; and they keep them fast in the Chaos, chastizing them.
And those retributive receivers cannot overstep the Chaos to reach to the orders which are above the chaos, and convict the souls which come forth out of those regions.
Now then it is not lawful to use force on the souls which receive mysteries, and lead them into the chaos, so that the retributive servitors may convict them.
But the retributive servitors convict the souls of the sinners and they keep fast those who have received no mysteries which may lead them out of the chaos.
The souls on the other hand which receive mysteries - they have no power of convicting them, because they do not come forth out of their regions, and also, if they come forth into their regions, they are not able to obstruct them; nay, they cannot lead them into that chaos.
"Hearken moreover that I may tell you the word in truth, in what type the mystery of baptism forgiveth sins.
Now, therefore, if the souls sin when they are still in the world, the retributive servitors indeed come and are witnesses of all the sins which the soul committeth, lest in sooth they should come forth out of the regions of the chaos, in order that they may convict them in the judgments which are outside the chaos.
And the counterfeiting spirit becometh witness of all the sins which the soul shall commit, in order that it may convict it in the judgments which are outside the chaos, not only that it may bear witness of them, but - all the sins of the souls - it sealeth the sins and maketh them fast on to the soul, in order that all the rulers of the chastisements of the sinners may recognize it.
That it is a sinning soul, and that they may know of the number of sins which it hath committed, by the seals which the counterfeiting spirit hath made fast on to it, so that it shall be chastized according to the number of sins which it hath committed.
"Now, therefore, he who shall receive the mysteries of the baptisms, then the mystery of them becometh a great, exceedingly violent, wise fire and it burneth up the sins and entereth into the soul secretly and consumeth all the sins which the counterfeiting spirit hath made fast on to it.
And when it hath finished purifying all the sins which the counterfeiting spirit hath made fast on to the soul, it entereth into the body secretly and pursueth all the pursuers secretly and separateth them off on the side of the portion of the body.
For it pursueth the counterfeiting spirit and the destiny and separateth them off from the power and from the soul and putteth them on the side of the body, so that it separateth off the counterfeiting spirit and the destiny and the body into one portion; the soul and power on the other hand it separateth into another.
The mystery of baptism on the contrary remaineth in the midst of the two, continually separating them from one another, so that it maketh them clean and purifieth them, in order that they may not be stained by matter.
"Now, therefore, Mary, this is the way in which the mysteries of the baptisms forgive sins and all iniquities."
- CHAPTER 116 -
Then Mary started forward and said: "Yes, my Lord, in truth I inquire closely into all the words which thou sayest.
Concerning the word then of the forgiveness of sins thou hast spoken unto us in similitude aforetime, saying:
'I am come to cast fire on the earth,' and again: 'What will I that it burn?'
And again thou hast distinguished it clearly, saying:
'I have a baptism, to baptize in it; and how shall I endure until it is accomplished?
This, my Lord, is the word which thou hast spoken clearly.
"The word indeed which thou hast spoken: 'I am come to cast fire on the earth, and what will I that it burn?' - that is, my Lord:
Thou hast brought the mysteries of the baptisms into the world, and thy pleasure is that they should consume all the sins of the soul and purify them.
And thereafter again thou hast distinguished it clearly, saying: 'I have a baptism, to baptize in it; and how shall I endure until it is accomplished?' - that is:
Thou wilt not remain in the world until the baptisms are accomplished and purify the perfect souls.
"And moreover the word which thou hast spoken unto us aforetime:
This is the solution of the word."
