How would you like to know something that no one has ever known until now? We all know the familiar story of Oedipus answering the Riddle of the Sphinx. However, this Sphinx was a woman outside of Thebes. It was probably a story concocted because no one has ever been able to answer the Riddle of the True Sphinx which lines up with the Pyramid of Khafre at the foot of its causeway, in Egypt.The most popular and current theory of the Sphinx holds that it was commissioned by the 4th Dynasty King, Khafre (2558-2532 BCE), one of the sons of Khufu (AKA Cheops).
Everyone is familiar with the popular Game Show, Jeopardy, where the Answer is given and the contestant must supply the Question.You have all heard at sometime in your life: "What is the Question?" That's because the Sphinx is the Oldest Answer which begs a Question. We need to know that Question because we need to know when the World, as we know it, began; Bishop Usher's 4400 B.C. and Science's 6 Billion Years Ago, notwithstanding.
Before you can ask that Question, you must first know the Answer. Look carefully at the Sphinx. It has the Head of a Woman and the Body of a Lion. I will now give you that Question: "Where does a Circle begin and where does it end?" The Sphinx Answers: "It begins in Virgo and ends in Leo!"
That's right. Every 2,150 years there is a Precession of the Vernal Equinox. The Suns apparent position moves a little bit west in a constellation when observed on the same day each year; it takes an equinox sun approximately 2,150 years to transit one of the twelve constellations on its 25,800-year jaunt around the Zodiac. We are now in the Age of Aquarius, the Communications Age, which dawned February 4, 1962, the birthday of our 40th President, Ronald Reagan, "The Great Communicator." Aquarius rules Communications, the Air, etc. The Vernal Point moves backwards through the Zodiac.
When it began in Pisces (The 2 Fish swimming in opposite directions), the "Fish" symbolized the ministry of Jesus Christ: Multiplying of the loaves and fishes, Apostles as Fishers of men, drawing the 2 lines to resemble a fish.
Before that, the Point was in Aries (The Ram), note: Ramses the Pharoah, Abraham sacrificing the Ram found in the thicket in place of Isaac, Jacob separating the Lambs from the Goats. Jesus, the "Lamb of God" was the sacrifice whose death ended the Age of Aries and ushered in the Piscean Age.
When the Vernal Point was in Taurus (The Bull), we had Bull worship throughout Mesopotamia, Zeus in the form of a Bull mating with Europa, Aaron's Golden Calf, Yama the god of Death was represented as a Bull, Krishna of Hinduism was a Cow Herder; there was the Minotaur of Crete.
The Age of Gemini (The Twins) Jacob and Esau, Castor and Pollux, Peleg and Joktan, "the day the earth was split in two."
Before that was the Age of Cancer(The Crab), the definitive Water Sign: The time of the Great Flood, Noah, Epic of Gilgamesh, etc.
The Age of Virgo (The Virgin) began approximately 15,000 years ago. It began at the end of Libra (Justice) when we were all exiled to this place. Virgo (the Divine Mother) went into exile with us because she could not bear to be without Her children. She is also called Sophia, Wisdom, the Shekinah, etc. Matthew 2:18, "A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, weeping and great mourning, Rachel (the lamb of God) weeping for her children; she wouldn't be comforted, because they are no more."
We have approximately 11,000 years before we get to Leo ( The Lion), the "Tail End" of the story, i.e., when "the Lion lies down with the Lamb" and Leo and Aries become One. Until then, no one is going anywhere until that Warrior King of the Beasts shows up, whoever He is.
