Unquestionably developing the symbolism of the Zodiac was one of the supreme accomplish in the history of propaganda. Here the ubiquitous night sky itself became a canvas, a cathedral apse or digital screen where one might project encoded propaganda to the entire world, merely by attaching names to the various constellations. Equally unquestionably, at least to the extent it developed as the symbolism of astrology and not as the science of astronomy, it was, from its Mesopotamian origins, a wholly Semitic development. This remained true through its final refinement in the Greco-Roman symbolism and this is where we will focus our study.
As with all JEM, we find encoded in the symbols of the Zodiac prophesies of Semitic victory. Here symbols function as references to parable encoded with JEM. Much of the contemporary Zodiac is a celebration of Greek heroes, their lives and their deeds. Yet like the heroes of present day comic book lore, the mortal heroes of Greek Mythology are heavily Semitic.
Indeed, it is a mistake to believe simply because they were imagined in these parables as warriors that they were any more Aryan than the fighting and brawling Superman or Batman. Rituals, persisting to this day, where individuals seek to divine individual prophesies through an identification with this Zodiac sign or that, merely represent a continued transmission of this JEM. Let’s go through each Zodiac symbol, starting with the first, Aries, to establish this phenomenon.
Aries, the Ram, is a depiction of the ram that provided the Golden Fleece or “Chrysomallus.” His captor, the mortal Jason, five generations removed from the fire god Prometheus himself is certainly a Semitic figure. Indeed, his mother, Alcimede, was one of the matrilineal Minyan daughters descended of Minyas.
This is meaningful because the Minyans, originating on Lemnos, like the Pelasgian with whom they were often conflated, were certainly proto-Jewish. In fact, one famous tale describes how the Minyan women developed a terrible stench because of their refusal to worship Aphrodite. This caused their men to take up with Thracian slaves. Hence they conform to a reoccurring trope in JEM, where the Jewess, as the Biblical Leah, is understood as “unloved” in contrast to non-Jewish or Aryan women.
In this light we find it meaningful that Jason’s Argonauts, which included several of Jason’s Minyan cousins, were sometimes simply called the “Minyans.” Possibly its meaningful that the word Minyan, מִנְיָן, appears in Hebrew to describe a quorum of ten Jews required for certain religious obligations.
Aries or the ram bearing the Golden Fleece, on the other hand, is certainly an Aryan symbol. Importantly we remember here the ram is a male sheep thus ultimately a symbol also of subservience and resource. Here, as elsewhere in JEM, gold becomes an Aryan identifier. To wit, the Golden Fleeced Ram becomes the exploitable blonde haired Aryan.
Indeed, Aries is well understood as a synonym of the Golden Calf in Exodus 32. Likewise, he may be understood more simply as the ovine “sin offering” in Judaism. Here Aries, the ram, is also akin to “the spring of Ares,” won by the Semitic hero of Cadmus and also guarded by a Dragon. Indeed, in light of other clues, it is hardly a stretch to imagine that the name Aries is connected to the phonetically identical Ares.
As this study explicates, Ares or Mars is certainly an Aryan figure. Perhaps as well, both words bear a relation to Arya, the root word of Aryan. Likewise possibly Aries is related to the Hebrew word Ari, ארי , which means “Aryan” and “Lion.” Hence, in the Zodiac, through, a “Jacobean swap” the Aryan “lion” is made lamb and controllable resource.
Taurus is a reference to the Mesopotamian “Bull of Heaven.” As this study explicates, it is a reference to the Semitic figures of Enlil, Nanna/Sin and so forth. Though the Bull, like other animal totems, will appear in Myth as a “status identifier” as opposed to an ethnic identifier, ultimately the symbol was developed early in Sumer as a Semitic figure appearing as a reference to racial cuckoldry. This is explicated elsewhere in this study.
The Gemini are a reference to Castor and Pollux, Semitic fertility Gods, who may ultimately be traced to the Lemnian figures of the Cabeiri. Again, Lemnos was the seat of the Vulcan cult and an important site of proto-Jewish inhabitation in the ancient world. The Cabeiri are certainly Semitic figures.
Cancer is ultimately a reference to the Heracles cult that was Zodiacal. Indeed, here the twelve labors of Heracles correspond with the twelve Zodiacs in much the way that the twelve tribes of Israel or the twelve Apostles also refer to the Zodiac. This alone suggests Heracles as an especially Semitic figure. Cancer represents Karkinos, a Crab that attacked Heracles as he was fighting the Hydra. Hence like Leo, whom represents the Nemean Lion, also a defeated opponent of Heracles, Cancer is another trophy of Semitic victory.
Indeed, the story of Heracles is entirely one of Semitic ambition whereby a “half-mortal” eventually ascends into an Aryan Olympus. Hesiod describes Heracles’ mother as dark eyed, Alcmene. This description is akin to the description given of Mercury’s mother, the oread Maia. Some accounts suggest Alcmene was the daughter of “dark-faced” Pelops, certainly a Semitic figure. All of these things are clues.
Yet the symbolism appearing in Heracles’ tasks especially reveal his identity as a Semite. For instance, when he fights the Nemean Lion, a clear symbol for the Aryan here, he discovers the lion cannot be stabbed to death because it possesses an impenetrable hide. Hence Heracles must kill it with a club. Here the club becomes an arboreal symbol also representing the Aryan. The Semite may not slay the Aryan lion directly, he must slay it through the manipulation of other Aryans. The Hebrew supports this conclusion.
There Alah, אַלָּה, means “club”, “baton” or cudgel” yet it also means “goddess.” The modern comic book character Black Tom, esoterically a Jewish figure, possesses a similar item, a wooden shillelagh. It likewise suggests his control or influence over Aryans first expressed in his relationship to the Aryan character Juggernaut. Ultimately, Heracles assumes the mantle of king, much like Judah during Jacob’s blessing, when he dons the lion hide as armor. Yet as Judah, he is a Semite in “Lion’s clothing.”
The Hydra is slain in a similarly symbolic fashion. There, fire, a Semitic element, is used to destroy a creature that represents, first and foremost, the element of water. Indeed the nine heads of the hydra become akin, in this manner, to the nine candles of the Hanukah candelabrum, where Semitic fire consumes Aryan olive oil.
As the servant candle, Shamash, is understood as illuminating the other candles, Heracles catamite servant Iolaus is given the task of cauterizing the severed neck stumps of the Hydra to assure they do not grow back. Perhaps as well, with both the Hydra and Hanukah candelabrum, we find a reference to the nine muses, Aryan beings born of Mnemosyne and Jupiter. Regardless, the constellation of the Hydra should be understood as symbolically akin to the Hanukah candelabrum. This is JEM.
Virgo is a reference to Astraea, a goddess of innocence, who fled earth during the decadent, mythical age of Iron. The Woman of the Apocalypse appearing in Revelation 12 is perhaps a reference to Astraea as well. In the end, Astraea is a wane and demoralizing reference to the seasonal and the “inevitable” decline of man. Further, this astral, nocturnal figure, whose name means “star maiden,” is certainly Semitic.
To wit, she is the daughter of the Titans, Astraesus, God of Dusk, and Eos, Goddess of Dawn. Hence she is certainly descended of a Semitic father. Indeed, Astraesus may be understood as the equivalent of Shalim, the Canaanite God of Dusk from whence Jerusalem takes its name.
With Virgo or Astraea, innocence itself is given to the infertile night and, essentially, to a Jewess. The pivotal character Ana Stelline (Carla Juri), in the film Blade Runner 2049, penned by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, is likely a reference to Astraea. The Replicant named Joe (Ryan Gosling), an infertile Aryan Messiah ben Joseph, dies while assuring her survival and the survival of a new breed of reproductive “replicants.”
Libra, a figure represented by the symbol of scales, is a reference to the Semitic Titaness Themis, a Goddess of Law and Justice. Indeed, in Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound, Prometheus mentions that one of her names is Gaia. The earth mother Gaia or Terra, of course, is a Semitic figure.
Here we encounter an absurdity akin to Minerva as Goddess of Wisdom. Emotion ruled women are the symbol of Justice? More Themis is indicated a Jewess or proto-Jewess making the premise even more absurd. As this study discusses, Jews esoterically admit this a false notion in their Hebrew. There tzedek, צֶדֶק, means “justice,” “fairness,” “honesty” and “integrity.” In Modern Hebrew it also means “Jupiter.”
Scorpio is a reference to a giant scorpion summoned into existence by Terra to slay Orion. Here the premise is that the Aryan Apollo, jealous of the Semitic Orion, who pursued his sister, Diana, weakly complained to Terra. Hence Scorpio becomes a symbol of Aryan jealousy. Nevertheless, it is true that Jewesses should be apprised of their low status vis-à-vis Jews and that this will be greatly demoralizing to Jewry. There is nothing cowardly about honesty. Here, in the tale, both the Scorpion and the Semitic Orion are set in the sky by a commiserating Jupiter.
Sagittarius is a reference to the centaur Chiron. The barbaric centaurs, perhaps a reference to central Eurasian horsemen, are understood to have descended from Ixion and Nephele. Both are celestial and Aryan figures. For offending Jupiter, Ixion was bound to an eternally spinning solar wheel, hence he becomes a solar figure however reluctantly. It is also frequently indicated he descended from the Aryan Ares. Nephele, for her part, was made of cloud by Jupiter. Her name itself means “cloud.” In other versions, the Centaurs are understood as descended from Apollo and the river nymph Stilbe.
Yet Chiron, the only intelligent and civilized Centaur, is a Semitic figure. Indeed, his lineage is unrelated to that of other Centaurs. He is even anatomically different. Indeed, in traditional Greek representations of Chiron, his front legs are human, rather than equine. This is in contrast to the traditional representation of centaurs, which have the entire lower body of a horse. Chiron is descended directly from the Jewish God Saturn through the Oceanid Philyra. He was the teacher of heroes and may even be indicated, esoterically, as the father of Jason. After all, Jason’s Minyan mother Alcimede admitted to an affair with the Saturn descended Centaur.
Capricorn is a representation of the Sumerian water God Enki. Traditionally Capricorn is depicted as a being with the head and upper body of a goat and the lower body and tail of a fish. Similar to the God Dagon and to the symbol of Aries, Capricorn represents Aryan as resource, livestock and fish.
Aquarius is the water carrier. Aquarius, is a reference to the catamite Ganymede ostensibly adored by Jupiter. We should suspect that a future “American Zodiac” would seek to replace him with Robin of the Batman parables. Of course, we shall prevent this.
Rather it is reasonable for us to claim this massively important and abiding nocturnal canvas for ourselves and to infuse it with AIM. Why not be reminded of the sun, and the life and fertility he represents, even in his absence?
Lastly, there is Pisces. Pisces is synonymous with ichthys in the Christ mythology. As covered elsewhere in this study, the ichthys represents Aryan as consumable resource. Specifically it is a reference to the Aryan Venus fleeing the Semitic Typhon. This is what it represents in the Christian symbolism as well.
 Black Tom is a supervillain appearing in several Marvel Comics, typically involving the X-Men.
 Alcaeus of Mytilene is the first to give a number to the heads of the Hydra around 600 BC. He gives it nine heads. Though images of a six-headed hydra, appearing on fibulae, pre-date this.
 Stelline means “little star.”
 The Oceanids were, in Greek Myth, the daughters of Oceanus and Tethys. Philyra was an Oceanid who gave birth to Chrion after union with Cronus.

Amazing. Jung’s interpretation of the Zodiac seems a pretty sorry sight by now.
Still, I’m curious, to what extent are we demolishing the concept of a “collective unconscious”, “human universals”, or some notion of a pre-existing cognitive structure?
No doubt your theory debunks a great deal of the Jung-Campbell tradition, men who clearly got a bit carried away in their symbolic cataloguing. I think many of us suspected this, although we may not have admitted it.
Still, it seems we cannot return to blank slate theories of mind, and that “the archetypes”, “knots of fascination” roughly speaking, would still exist, if even in a cruder form. For instance, “the hero” as a concept, remains at root untainted by conscious human artistry to my eye. “Hard-wired”, as it were.
One likelihood is that differing ethnic groups possess different “archetypal” structures, and that mythology is in fact the *interplay* between these psychic structures, in the context of the ethnic group dynamics you propose. Indeed, Jung himself seemed sympathetic to this idea before the end of the war.
I talk about this some in my first article on the site: https://theapolloniantransmission.com/2018/12/15/propaganda-art-religion-myth-as-race-forming-synonyms-2/ I argue the abiding myth are typically the design of a conscious mind, in a sense, built to last. Do some myths arise, more or less, unconsciously and then gain popularity? Certainly. Often though these are refined through a conscious development by later handlers and may even gain popularity in the first place because they reference an earlier more conscious development. Even this, though, is frequently semiconscious. An artist is typically thinking of something for his inspiration even if he doesn’t understand that thing whether wholly or partially.

I don’t know. Chiron as the wounded healer seems pretty accurate. “Let me tell you about my sufferink!”

Hah, that take seems fairly controversial.
Aries – Arian (lion turned into sheep/servant)
Taurus – Semitic (a status identifier more than an ethnic identifier)
Gemini – Semitic (originates from a Cthonic cult)
Cancer – Arian (defeated by a Semite)
Virgo – Semitic (Astraea, goddess of innocence & daughter of Titans)
Libra – Semitic (reference to Themis, a Goddess of Law and Justice, and the absurdism of emotional women as representing justice)
Scorpio – Arian (symbol of Apollo’s jealusy)
Sagittarius – Semitic (descendant of Saturn unlike the rest of the centaurs)
Capricorn – Arian (goat and fish resources. Related to Dagon, god of the Philistines)
Aquarius – Airan (water carrier. Related to a Catamite ostensibly loved by Jupiter. Through AIM it shall be a symbol of the sun and fertility)
Pisces – Arian (Consumable. Related to Venus fleeing Typhon)
Since we’re at it:
Heracles/Hercules – Half-Arian Semite (a defeated Arian lion as headgear) (reminds me of Yaldabaoth)
Hydra – Arian (representing water, its defeat through fire relates to the Hanukah candelabrum and the 9 muses)
The only correction is with Aquarius – “Through AIM it shall be a symbol of the sun and fertility.” I don’t say that. Also, while I posit my broad assessments as correct, there is of course some speculation here…maybe especially “the Hanukah candelabrum and the 9 muses.” Though these are possible references being made as I explain.
