Rider Waite Tarot and the Sun Card
by Jennifer Asad 7/1/12, Revision 5/8/13
We first think we are looking at one sun, but we are really looking at two suns. The first being the sun in the sky and according to Rider Waite is the Dog Star Sirius. Sirius, considered the star of Isis, was everything to the Ancient Egyptians and Waite gave it a feminine face.
Egyptians knew that Sirius was many times brighter than our sun. Today, it is known that Sirius is traveling towards earth at thousands of miles an hour. Sirius has also been called the sun of the sun, or the sun behind the sun and the true source of our suns potency. While our sun provides heat and energy to the physical world, considered an illusion, Sirius provides energy both to our sun and to the spiritual
world. The straight rays are the visible light and the wavy rays are its subtle spiritual influence, in esoteric terms called the dew. Great teachers were associated with Sirius and believed to have come from here and it is the destination of those reaching divinity or enlightenment. Shafts of the Great Pyramid point towards this star. The star Sirius, called the Blazing Star by the Freemasons, can be found in all Masonic halls. Because the rising of Sirius in the east signaled the rising of the Nile River, it became known as the Eastern Star. The Order of the Eastern Star was established in Freemasonry to provide an avenue for the wives of Masons to participate in charity works. Sirius (a sun) is a personification of Isis, and Horus is Isis son (sun). Sirius/Isis becomes the sun of the sun, the sun behind the sun. In other words, our sun is Horus, the sun of Sirius/Isis. What we have in this card is Sirius (Isis) shining overhead as her son Horus, our sun, rides forth. Some ancients believed that our sun was thrust forward, or was born, of Sirius; Horus born of Isis.
We see the same concept that we find on this tarot card on the back of our one dollar bill; the Great Pyramid with missing capstone. In the missing capstones place is the All Seeing Eye of Horus and behind is the Blazing Star of Freemasonry, Sirius.
Eye of Horus. Novus Ordo Seclorum is Latin for New Order of the Ages and is synonymous with the New World Order. By necessity, new world orders come out of the ashes of the destruction of the old. We will let Rider Waite shed some Light on the meaning behind the All Seeing Eye on the back of the dollar bill.
The sun is that consciousness in the spirit the direct (as opposed to) the reflected light. The characteristic type of humanity has become a little child therein a child in the sense of simplicity and innocence in the sense of wisdom in that innocence he signifies the restored world. When the self-knowing spirit has dawned in the consciousness above the natural mind, that mind in its renewal leads forth the animal nature in a state of perfect conformity.
The sun is that consciousness in the spirit, this represents Sirius~ the Blazing Star behind.
The direct as opposed to the reflected light, this represents Horus, our physical sun.
When the self-knowing spirit has dawned in the
consciousness above the natural mind, that mind in its renewal leads forth the animal nature in a state of perfect conformity.
We each are considered miniature suns (sons of God) with our
own solar system (our solar plexus). Sirius then would represent our higher mind or self-knowing spirit while our sun Horus represents our material (seen) selves, or as Waite says, our natural mind.
When our spiritual mind dawns above our natural mind, we are considered enlightened, illuminated, and hence the much maligned term Illuminati. The All Seeing Eye therefore represents an activated Third Eye. The Eye above the pyramid states that the Illuminati, being illuminated, have a divine right to rule the world. It is a closed club, open to invitation only (even purchasable) and over the course of time has become corrupt and perverse, even evil.
The characteristic type of humanity has become a little child
therein a child in the sense of simplicity and innocence in the sense of wisdom in that innocence he signifies the restored world.
Waite speaks of the characteristics of humanity during the next Golden Age that ushers in the restored world; the naked child riding forth on the white horse. Nakedness shows one who is free and uninhibited.
But, the Illuminati do not want you to become enlightened, enjoying freedom, feeling uninhibited or even having wisdom. It threatens their position of power in the world.
They poison us with aspartame, fluoride and vaccines to dumb us down as they churn out media designed to spiritually infect us with immorality and indecency. And it is true they want a minimal and controllable amount to keep as their working class slaves.
And why would they put the All Seeing Eye on the back of the US dollar bill, the base denomination of MONEY used as the standard around the world? Because in their perversion they have equated money with enlightenment. They are the money changers in the temple, the original temple having been the Great Pyramid. And like some colossal pyramid scheme, they perch themselves at the top, sitting as vultures (not an Ibis) feeding off hapless victims below.
Having their gluttonous fill of money, their insatiable appetite has quickly turned to a lust for CONTROL as they lead us into a worldwide militarized police state where humanity is stripped of their liberties. They use the element of fear labeled terrorism with false flag attacks, drills with crisis actors, fake casualties, even real attacks, until we gladly give up our freedom for safety.
I know you want to hear that the indelible spirit within mankind will see us triumphant, that we will eventually succeed in casting off
our overlords and live free. But the truth is their efforts will only become more and more oppressive. They will mark us, process us, electronically monitor and track us until they have invaded every aspect of our being right down to our very DNA. It will be your worst Orwellian nightmare.
In the future, they will live separate from us, within areas off limits to their slaves, I mean, civilians, whose children will mysteriously disappear forever into these no-go zones. But, I have digressed.
Quoting Waite again regarding The Sun card: It is the destiny of the Supernatural East and the great and holy light which goes before the endless procession of humanity, coming out from the walled garden of the sensitive life and passing on the journey home. The card signifies, therefore, the transit from the manifest world, represented by the glorious sun of earth, to the light of the world to come.
Supernatural East is a term for Freemasons who consider themselves the continuation of Ancient Egyptian tradition and mystery teachings. Waite himself was a Freemason (not the same as Illuminati). But, he refers to the TRUE Supernatural East, not the counterfeit. And he says again that our glorious sun represents the manifest world while Sirius represents the great and holy light. the endless precession of humanity, coming out from the walled garden of the sensitive life. The walled garden of the sensitive life refers to the Garden of Eden. In an endless precession (precession of the equinox) humanity passes from one Garden of Eden (Golden Age) towards the light of the world to come, the next Golden Age. But, pay attention to what is pivotal (central) to the Golden Age, the great and holy light. This is Sirius. Sirius was called Sothis by the ancient Egyptians who believed that the highly charged particles of Sirius had a tremendous effect on this planet and that it is the spirit energy that flows through the sun that is the supreme deity. Is it any wonder the ancients worshiped and revered Sirius?
In an older Bohemian Sun card, there are two children in an embrace. One is pulling and the second appears to be pushing the other away with Sirius overhead. This pulling and pushing represents the magnetic effects (positive and negative) that these two bodies have on each other. Because Sirius has come close overhead, spiritual dew falls from the heavens influencing humanity and bringing a new Golden Age.
Although it is impossible to know what the artist meant to represent by this, other than Sirius for sure overhead, we see the same correspondence between the two children as between our sun and Saturn.
Waite had this to say: The luminary is distinguished in older cards by chief rays that are waved and salient alternately and by secondary salient rays. Beneath the dog-star there is a wall suggesting an enclosure-as it might be, a walled garden-wherein are two children, either naked or lightly clothed, facing a water, and gamboling, or running hand in hand. liphas Lvi says that these are sometimes replaced by a spinner unwinding destinies, and otherwise by a much better symbol-a naked child mounted on a white horse and displaying a scarlet standard.
A spinner unwinding destinies, again refers to the precession of the equinox with the influence of Saturn being the planet credited with contributing the main force behind our earths wobble (the spinner). A spindle is tilted to wind yard so that it doesnt bundle in one place. The scarlet standard of Waites flag is also tilted, as is our entire galaxy. In another article, I will discuss in more detail how John the Baptist is Saturn. The following information will be removed from this article and moved to that article when done. I will get to it as soon as I can.
In the image below (Bouguereau,) John the Baptist and baby Jesus are locked in an embrace while Madonna encompasses them both. In accordance to astrology of palmistry, she holds up the index finger for Jupiter-Zeus (J-Zeus or Jesus) and middle finger representing Saturn. Jesus is a Greek name, not Jewish, and literally means, hail Zeus. For the Greeks, Jesus was Jupiter, so in affect, Jesus and John the Baptist are Jupiter and Saturn. But in a strange twist, not so unfamiliar to mythology, Jesus is also our sun. But, for mystics, Sirius is the real sun.
If we pull back, we see that the overall figure is that of a triangle (pyramid). Now look at her right hand. She touches a spindle of yarn, which we have identified as representing John the Baptist, and she extends the index finger for Jupiter-Zeus. Then with the thumb, she has completed the shape of a triangle. The thumb is Venus, the virgin goddess who is personified as Virgin Mary. These three are invoked during the sign of Benediction (blessing,) which is also called the hand of God. In the painting on the right (Da Vinci,) Madonnas hand is raised to radiate benevolent influence. Baby Jesus pulls away to longingly grasp and embrace a yarn spindle, which happens to look like a cross. The presence of the spindle places John the Baptist into the image. Baby Jesus legs are bent to evoke the symbol for Jupiter , which looks similar to the number 4. Johns knee is also slightly bent.
Sirius and Venus are both Virgin Mary. Jupiter and the sun are both Jesus. John the Baptist is Saturn.
Father Time, with sickle and/or hour glass, shown ushering in the New Year, is another personification of Saturn. The presence of this massive planet influences the precession of the equinox, the backwards wobble of the earth that causes the Ages to move backwards through the zodiac. Saturn therefore is given the attribute of the measurement of time.
One rotation of this clock (wobble) would equate to a 24,000 year Great Year. Each hour would represent an Age, consisting of approximately 2,000 years per Age. There are 12 Ages, one for each
Zodiac sign. We move through the zodiac forward in a mundane year but move through them backwards in a Great Year, thanks to Saturn. This is why John the Baptist said of Jesus, He will go on increasing while I will go on decreasing.
Saturn is the god of harvest or time of reaping (the sickle,) a
time when wheat are separated from chaff. His feast day, called Saturnalia, is held in winter (old man). His sickle points to the young boy who represents the New Year. The tilt of his sickle equates to the tilt of earth as it spins upon its axis (23.5 degrees). This is akin to the tilt of a spindle, symbolically weaving our destiny. Notice also the lean of the boy. Interestingly, the symbol for Saturn is that of a sickle and a cross (sun and Saturn? A harvest at a crossing?)
Horses symbolize seasons and by extrapolation, Ages. We see
this theme of seasons and Ages in the four horsemen of Revelations (see article). In this sense, he is the first horseman upon a white horse riding out to conquer. His banner, historically used on the battlefield flows in a loose leminiscate of a figure 8 and represents the suns elliptical path above and below the equator and the solar systems elliptical path above and below the galactic plane.
Like the rider of Revelations, he wears a crown (Latin corona) of sunflowers.
His arms reach out to evoke the sign of the cross, the origin of which marked the four cardinal points of north, south, east and west and the 4 seasons. He is the sun upon the cross. Arms widespread are also used to denote a span of time. Rider Waite is brilliant (who ever doubted?) in that he placed 4 sun flowers upon the wall (galactic plane). Crossing the galactic plane places us either above or
below the galactic equator and delineates our Golden and Dark ages. Above the galactic equator is considered the Garden of Eden and below it is considered to be cast out. It is the same as the sun being above the earths equator for summer months and below for winter months. The 4 sun flowers represent four prior suns or creations; each proceeded by destruction of the old that leads to a rebirth, a new sun that we see riding forth. Four prior creations agree with the Hopi, Aztecs, Hindu, and many others. It also agrees with Revelations. Accounts in Revelations first describe the extremely volatile creation of our universe. Then we see a beast with four faces, the four fixed signs of the zodiac; Aquarius (man,) Taurus (ox,) Scorpio or Aquila (eagle) and Leo (lion). The fact that there are 4 of these beasts represents four prior creations of our heavens. Then there is a great destruction followed by a new heaven and new earth; the fifth world.
In Lost Star of Myth and Time, author Walter Cruttenden makes a strong case of our planet being part of a binary solar system and says our suns dual is no other than the star system Sirius. It is thought to be approaching us at 12 miles per second.
Quoting Cruttenden, The more one looks at the evidence the
more that it appears that Sirius, one of our closest stars, and the absolute brightest star in the sky, could be our partner sun.
Later he writes, This leads to the proposition of a simple hypothesis: As our Sun moves in a vast orbit around its companion star, it carries the Earth in and out of a magnetic or electromagnetic field that impacts the planet and life on a grand scale. Eventually, the effect shows
outwardly as a positive or negative change in civilization, depending on whether we are getting closer to or farther from the source of influence this of course implies that we as human beings are not independent of the invisible influences in the cosmos that constantly surrounds us.
In The Holy Science, Sri Yukteswar wrote the sun, with its
planets and their moons, takes some star for its dual and revolves around it in about 24,000 years of our eartha celestial phenomenon [Precession]. . . . The sun also has another motion by which it revolves around a grand center called Vishnunabhi, which is the seat of creative power, Brahma, the universal magnetism. Brahma regulates dharma, the mental virtue of the internal world When the sun in its revolution around its dual comes to the place nearest to this grand center, the seat of Brahma (an event which takes place when the Autumnal Equinox comes to the first point of Aries), dharma, the mental virtue, becomes so much developed that man can easily comprehend all, even the mysteries of the spirit.
The hypothesis is that our central sun (Sirius) and our proximity
thereof have a direct influence on the consciousness of man. We know that a lack of sun during the winter months can induce depression (seasonal affective disorder) and a host of other maladies, so too a deficiency of beneficial rays from the central sun propels man into the dark ages of mental and physical illness.
Sirius (Isis,) called Sirius A, has an invisible companion dwarf star called Sirius B (Osiris). While Sirius A is 3 times the mass of our sun and ten times as bright, Sirius B is so dense that one teaspoon weighs 5 tons. Its magnetic influence is far reaching within the solar system and its effects have been shown to even be able to slow the rotation of our planet. Quoting from Drunvalo Melchizedek in The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, Volume I. From Africa, where the Dogons live, the star Sirius disappears below the horizon and is out of sight for a couple of months; then it appears again on the morning of July 23, when it rises about one minute before the Sun. It appears bright ruby-red, just above the horizon, almost exactly due east. Sixty seconds later the Sun emerges. So you can see Sirius for just a
moment, then it's gone. This is called the helical rising of Sirius, which was a very important moment for most of the ancient world, not just for the Dogons and Egypt. This is the moment when Sirius and the Sun and the Earth are in a straight line across space. In Egypt, almost all the temples were aligned with this line, including the gaze of the Sphinx. Many of the temples had a tiny hole in the wall somewhere; then there would be another wall and another, going into some dim inner chamber. In that chamber there would be something like a cube or Golden Mean rectangle of granite sitting in the middle of the room with a little mark on it. At the moment of the heliacal rising of Sirius, a ruby-red light would strike the altar for a few seconds, which would begin their new year and the first day of the ancient Sothic calendar of Egypt.
Our founding fathers, the majority being Freemasons, signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th to coincide with an alignment of Sirius and our sun, and in effect dedicated the US to Sirius (see image provided at end of article).
The Hopi called Sirius the Blue Star Kachina and their prophecy says When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge. Not far behind the twins will come the Purifier, the Red Kachina (red sun) who will bring the Day of purification. On this day the Earth, her creatures, and all life as we know it will change forever.
Sirius A and Sirius B are in elliptical orbit around each other (a couple or twins). When moving towards us, Sirius A appears blue in color. When moving away from us, Sirius A appears red in color. The object called Purifier, the Red Kachina, is clearly a third object that passes through when Sirius is headed back our way, which it now is.
The following quotes are from the Kolbrin Bible, which is a collection of ancient writings taken from different cultures around the world and complied into a book. It is amazing how description of the Destroyer (or Purifier) mirrors Revelations. It becomes clear that the author of Revelations knew what was in store for humanity because these events have happened before. He would have been a sage, a learned or wise man of sacred teachings. Recall that the three
wise-men in the bible knew of and followed the stars. They were first and foremost, astrologers. We are indebted to him, or even them, for seeing to it that Revelations made it into the compilation of the bible.

Chapter 3, The Destroyer FROM THE GREAT SCROLL
Men forget the days of the Destroyer. Only the wise know where it went and that it will return in its appointed hour.
It raged across the Heavens in the days of wrath, and this was its likeness: It was as a billowing cloud of smoke enwrapped in a ruddy glow, not distinguishable in joint or limb. Its mouth was an abyss from which came flame, smoke and hot cinders.
When ages pass, certain laws operate upon the stars in the Heavens. Their ways change, there is movement and restlessness, they are no longer constant and a great light appears redly in the skies.
When blood drops upon the Earth, the Destroyer will appear and mountains will open up and belch forth fire and ashes. Trees will be destroyed and all living things engulfed. Waters will be swallowed up by the land and seas will boil.
The Heavens will burn brightly and redly, there will be a copper hue over the face of the land, followed by a day of darkness. A new moon will appear and break up and fall.
The people will scatter in madness. They will hear the trumpet and battle cry of the Destroyer and will seek refuge in the den in the Earth. Terror will eat away their hearts and their courage will flow from them like water from a broken pitcher. They will be eaten up in the flames of wrath and consumed by the breath of the Destroyer.
Chapter 4, The Destroyer - part 2 FROM THE GREAT SCROLL
O Sentinels of the Universe who watch for the Destroyer, how long will your coming vigil last? O mortal men who wait without understanding, where will you hide yourselves in the Dread Days of Doom, when the Heavens shall be torn apart and the skies rent in twain, in the days when children will turn grey-headed?
This is the thing which will be seen, this is the terror your eyes will behold, this is the form of destruction that will rush upon you: There will be the great body of fire, the glowing head with many mouths and eyes ever changing. Terrible teeth will be seen in formless mouths and a fearful dark belly will glow redly from fires inside. Even the most stout-hearted man will tremble and his bowels be loosened, for this is not a thing understandable to men.
It will be a vast sky-spanning form enwrapping Earth, burning with many hues within wide open mouths. These will descend to sweep across the face of the land, engulfing all in the yawning jaws. The greatest warriors will charge against
it in vain. The fangs will fall out, and lo, they are terror-inspiring things of cold hardened water. Great boulders will be hurled down upon men, crushing them into red powder.
As the great salt waters rise up in its train and roaring torrents pour towards the land, even the heroes among mortal men will be overcome with madness. As moths fly swiftly to their doom in the burning flame, so will these men rush to their own destruction. The flames going before will devour all the works of men, the waters following will sweep away whatever remains. The dew of death will fall softly, as grey carpet over the cleared land. Men will cry out in their madness, O whatever Being there is, save us from this tall form of terror, save us from the grey dew of death.
Chapter 5, The Destroyer - part 3 FROM THE SCROLL OF ADEPHA
The Doomshape, called the Destroyer, in Egypt, was seen in all the lands whereabouts. In colour it was bright and fiery, in appearance changing and unstable. It twisted about itself like a coil, like water bubbling into a pool from an underground supply, and all men agree it was a most fearsome sight. It was not a great comet or a loosened star, being more like a fiery body of flame.
Its movements on high were slow, below it swirled in the manner of smoke and it remained close to the sun whose face it hid. There was a bloody redness about it, which changed as it passed along its course. It caused death and destruction in its rising and setting. It swept the Earth with grey cinder rain and caused many plagues, hunger and other evils. It bit the skin of men and beast until they became mottled with sores.
The Earth was troubled and shook, the hills and mountains moved and rocked. The dark smoke-filled Heavens bowed over Earth and a great howl came to the ears of men, borne to them upon the wings of the wind. It was the cry of the Dark Lord, the Master of Dread. Thick clouds of fiery smoke passed before him and there was an awful hail of hot stones and coals of fire. The Doomshape thundered sharply in the Heavens and shot out bright lightings. The channels of water were turned back unto themselves when the land tilted, and great trees were tossed about and snapped like twigs. Then a voice like ten thousand trumpets was heard over the wilderness, and before its burning breath the flames parted. The whole of the land moved and mountains melted. The sky itself roared like ten thousand lions in agony, and bright arrows of blood sped back and forth across its face. Earth swelled up like bread upon the hearth.
This was the aspect of the Doomshape called the Destroyer, when it appeared in days long gone by, in olden times. It is thus described in the old records, few of which remain. It is said that when it appears in the Heavens above, Earth splits open from the heat, like a nut roasted before the fire. Then flames shoot up through the surface and leap about like fiery fiends upon black blood. The moisture inside the land is all dried up, the pastures and cultivated places are consumed in flames and they and all trees become white ashes.
The Doomshape is like a circling ball of flame which scatters small fiery offspring in its train. It covers about a fifth part of the sky and sends writhing snakelike fingers down to Earth. Before it the sky appears frightened, and it breaks up and scatters away. Midday is no brighter than night. It spawns a host of terrible things. These are things said of the Destroyer in the old records, read them with a solemn heart, knowing that the Doomshape has its appointed time and will return. It would be foolish to let them go unheeded. Now men say, Such things are not destined for our days. May the Great God above grant that this be so. But come, the day surely will, and in accordance with his nature man will be unprepared.
