Since you are here, I’m just going to assume that you already know the Book of Revelation is a well-documented forgery that has its origins in a collection of forged writings called the Sibylline Oracles, which in turn has its origins in an original Egyptian collection called the Mysteries of Isis and Osiris. If you didn’t know that, well now you do! This article has already been worth your time.
All three collections have their origins in Sun worship and agricultural allegory, all of them. And since the Sun is “out there”, we also need to be looking in the same place for the answers on how to decode our most current forgery, the Book of Revelation.
Prior to the references to the four horsemen in the Christian Bible, they existed in Greek Mythology in the form of the four horses that pulled the chariot of the Greek Sun-God Helios, which means “Sun”.
These horses, which were representations of the four Cardinal Points (Equinoxes and Solstices) pulled Helios’s chariot across the sky daily. More on the Cardinal Points later in this article.
What I am about to reveal to you, VERY few people know. Revelation has been so misunderstood and misinterpreted for a very long time and it’s proper interpretation has been extremely suppressed by the Church, and rightly so. They can’t have you realizing the truth, can they?
I frequently hear the question(s): “Why is it symbolic of something else?” or “Why does the word ‘mountain’ mean ‘an elevated state of consciousness’ and not simply a mountain?” To be honest, those are very fair questions for the new seeker that yearns to understand the metaphorical “Mind of God.” The problem we encounter is that there isn’t really a short answer to those questions. The new seeker has to be willing to do some intensive and extensive research and studying to come to a conclusion that actually makes sense when not viewed through a theological lens. We live in a “now” society, but that won’t be even remotely successful when trying to decode the allegories of the Bible or any religious texts for that matter. In short, if it matters to you, you will take the time to fully understand these concepts so you too can do your part to help others that are struggling to understand the complex coding of the Bible.
First, let’s tackle why this is symbolic writing and not a literal or prophetic take on our near doom-and-gloom future engulfed in the flames of perdition. Because either these tales came from the imagination of men observing seasonal patterns that pertained to agriculture, which they did, or they came from God himself, which they didn’t. That’s not biased at all, is it? Sorry, but evidence is evidence and facts are facts. You can decide for yourself after the evidence has been presented.
Many ancient cultures observed the Sun’s passage through the seasons and its effects on the ability or inability to grow crops to survive the harshness of Winter. The Winter season quickly became associated with something dark or malevolent that stole life and brought nothing but hardship and suffering to humanity for as long as it lasted (by the way, it’s also the original source of the Devil or Satan in the Bible). Understanding when to plant or not could mean the difference between life or death. Astrological, agricultural, and esoteric knowledge was paramount to truly thrive as a species, both physically and mentally. This knowledge, initially only conveyed by oral tradition, was so important that, to avoid being lost, it was encoded in myth and, unfortunately, subsequent religious texts to always have a way of being preserved and carried forward for the benefit of future generations. The problem that was encountered was that once religion got a hold of it, it became corrupted for the mass control of believers, and the truth became obscured behind a veil of ignorance, where mythology was transformed into theology. This truth became reserved for the initiates of mystery schools, and was protected ferociously by religious leaders. Religious believers became known as being “profane” and “outside of the mystery”, where they still remain today. What I am about to teach you is mystery school territory because this knowledge is for all of us, not reserved only for a select few. And once you see the evidence, you will also see that the Bible is really, from an astrotheological perspective, just an out-of-date Farmer’s Almanac.
The “harvest” we see detailed in the Book of Revelation isn’t about people at all, but instead the actual agricultural harvest of the wheat (“believers”) from the chaff (“condemned”). It’s just written in allegory that needs to be deciphered to understand its true meaning. The Priesthood fooled the masses into thinking that it was a prophetic end-time scenario to be fulfilled at some magical unknown time in the future. “The end is coming so be prepared!” It’s really just symbolic of the transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age, not the “end of the world” but the end of an Age.
Revelation 6:1-8 King James Version
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Okay, to begin with, we need to have a basic understanding of a few vitally important Zodiac signs/constellations. Namely: Scorpio, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and by extension their relationship to the Four “Horsemen” and four Cardinal Points (Equinoxes and Solstices) within the Ecliptic, or the apparent circular path of the Sun through the sky during a calendar year.
These four Zodiac signs are where the Sun is at its weakest for the entire year. Hence the association with something negative: Winter, Hell, etc.
Let’s take a look at the descriptions of the “horses” in order as they appear in Scripture. First, is the White Horse.
“And he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him.” This is Sagittarius.
He clearly has a bow, Kaus Australis, and if you look just Southwest of the bow, you will see Corona Australis, the Crown. I think we could pick him out of a lineup with that description, yes?
Mystically, the color white is associated with Spirit and a time of rebirth. In this context, Sagittarius is associated with the Spring (Vernal) Equinox, one of the Cardinal Points I mentioned above.
Next is the Red “Horse”.
“Power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” This is Scorpio.
The killer and taker of peace that symbolically “stings” the Sun as it enters the beginning of the colder winter season; the time of deprivation, sorrow and misery where crops cannot grow.
Mystically, red is the opposite of white, so Scorpio is associated with the Fall (Autumnal) Equinox, the symbolic entrance to the underworld where the Sun begins to weaken.
Next is the Black “Horse”.
“And he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand“. This is Libra.
That one is about as obvious as you can get.
Libra is associated with the Winter Solstice, the blackness and darkness where the Sun is at its weakest point of the year.
Next is the Pale “Horse”, which, when you study the original Greek word that was translated, “chloros”, we get the most likely meaning of “green”, not pale. So we have a green horse, not a pale one.
What’s interesting to me is the fact that everywhere the Greek word “chloros” is translated in the English version of the New Testament (KJV), the interpretation is “green” every time. Why the mistranslation of “pale” in the Book of Revelation? It was probably to hide the obvious connection of green to the Summer Solstice, the time of abundant growth of nature during this time period. It just seems to me to be a way of throwing people off of the scent of the truth.
“and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” This is Capricorn, the Goat.
The obvious goat-devil sign of the Zodiac. The goat has long been associated with Satan or the Devil. “Hell followed with him.” Why? Because the Winter Solstice occurs in Capricorn, the absolute weakest point of the Sun in a calendar year. The darkness of Winter (Satan) has absolute power over the Sun (Jesus). The Sun is crucified during the Winter Solstice as it passes through the constellation “Crux”, or the “Southern Cross” on December 21st. The Sun (Jesus) symbolically dies for three day and three nights (December 22nd, 23rd, & 24th) and subsequently “resurrects” on December 25th to begin its annual path to its strongest point in the year, Jerusalem (the Summer Solstice).
There you have it. Now you know the keys to deciphering this mystery that has confounded so many over the years. Knowledge is power, use it wisely.
8 thoughts on “The Hidden Keys on How to Astrologically Decode the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”
Hi! My name is Samuel Martin. I couldn’t find your email on this website, but I wanted to contact you because I am working on a few projects related to mysticism, including but not limited to rewriting the whole Bible in a language that we can understand, called the HHMV (Hermeneutical Hidden Meanings Versions). I have not gotten very far, but I am extremely dedicated to learning about many of the things that are on your website. I watch at least 1 Bill Donahue video every day, and most of my time is spent either reading articles on hermeneutical mysticism just like yours or watching videos related to it. I eventually want to become a modern day philosopher that teaches other people the art of meditation as given in the Bible as well as the teachings of mysticism just like you do. I would love to have further conversation with you about this, as I believe you may have very beneficial advice and insight. Thank you!
If your listening to Bill Donahue, you are definitely on the right path. He was a major influence in me doing what I do. I actually emailed him years ago asking about his handouts he would pass around during his tapings. He was so kind and generous to send me everything he had on file. A veritable treasure trove of information that is interwoven into many of my articles.
Kudos for the work on your upcoming book, which sounds fascinating! I, too believe meditation is invaluable.
If you want to email me you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for commenting, and I look forward to future correspondence.
Greetings Matt. I watched one of Bill Donahue’s videos and as a practice, I research what he teaches after watching every video. This is how I came upon your article and I appreciate the knowledge put forth. In pursuit of one of BD’s videos, I have discovered something many scholars and rabbi’s find difficult to explain. I will share it with you, as it follows BD’s line of teaching, and I will try to be brief in my explanation.
Genesis 1:1-2 KJV
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
– Heaven and Earth were created. In silence/ without utterance / no “and or said” ,
– The earth was WITHOUT FORM and VOID = no structure, absolute emptiness, not dimensional, not atomic
– In DARKNESS = absent of all matter
Strong’s # 2822 = (“Choshek”) from Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon: Secret Place
– Upon the face of the DEEP = no form, not dimensional, therefore it has another meaning.
Strong’s 8415 = (“Tehom”) primeval ocean; the point when time & life came to be/ chaotic state which preceded
the ordained world. in other words ; The Beginning of All Things / Before All Things Began
– The Spirit of God moved = moved- an action to illustrate a presence.
Strong’s # 7363b = moving
– Upon the face = no form, no surface, therefore it has another meaning.
Strong’s 6440 = (“Paniym”) face, before, FROM BEFORE TIME
– Of the WATERS = no physical, no form, therefore it has another meaning-
Strong’s 4325 = water / flood Note: the brain is considered to be 75% – 80% made of water.
In the beginning, “without utterance and in silence” God created the heavens and earth (Mind).
The Earth (Mind) is not a physical place, God making it formless and void (empty).
And darkness (a secret place) was upon the face (before time) of the deep (before all things began).
(And in a secret place, before time and before all things began)
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face (before time) and the waters.
(The Spirit of God is there before time and the waters)
To conclude: Heaven and earth were created without utterance and in silence, God’s Spirit moves,
in a secret place, a place not physical, a place that is empty and is before time and is there and before
all things began. God Consciousness
Why God Consciousness? Because science states the following:
“Physical Properties cannot explain Consciousness. Consciousness is needed to explain physical properties.”
Genesis 1 poetically illustrates the creation of God Consciousness first, then the physical properties of creation come hither.
It supports BD’s teaching about reaching that “Secret Place”
Let me know your thoughts.
That’s the interesting thing about esoteric interpretations. You can plug all kinds of meaning into the text and come out with something that makes sense. Your interpretation is really interesting, as you’ve clearly done your research and are incorporating Strong’s references.
Some of the comments I see on spiritofthescripture.com follow the same line of thought you present here. Really fascinating.
Anyway, thank you for stopping by and sharing your gnosis with the community here. We all appreciate it.
Have you considered starting your own blog? It looks like you have a strong foundation to do so!
Thank you Matt for responding and for your advice.
The one feature I left out of my interpretation of Genesis 1
was to point out the separation of mankind from the created God Consciousness.
God Consciousness dwells in Eden. (Pineal)
Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden fruit, instantly becoming carnal.
And then God asked: Where are you?”
They had cut themselves off. Out, kaput, boom badda bing, see ya, duces, etc.
The question, “Where are you?” isn’t a test (as literalist or fundamentalist would have us assume.)
Rather, it’s symbolic of man’s instant separation from the higher realm to the lower because
“thoughts” were brought into Eden, the place of God’s dwelling.
“Take no thought” when going into meditation.
Thanks and take care.
