Saturn in astology stands for limitation and restrictions. Satan is about rationality and logic, using the intellect to govern instead of relying on the Word. The “sat-” prefix originally comes from Set in Kemetic mythology. Translated by the Greeks as Seth and represented as Typhon, Set’s role in the Asaurian Drama (called by the Greeks the Osirian Drama [Ausar-Osiris]) shows how he operates, but its hard to find a good source online, so here’s some quotes from Ra Un Nefer Amen’s Metu Neter Vol. 1 that make the connection and set the foundation for the use of the “sat-” prefix in European language. Just think of how we use the word today; we ‘set’ something aside, aka remove or SEparate it. We ‘set’ the stage, ‘set’ a date, ‘set’ an alarm, etc.
"Set— the creator of a governmental system in which the lower intellect’s (spheres 7-9) main function is to rationalize the sensual and emotional gratification of the animal spirit (sphere 10)." 124.
"With Ausar out of the way, Set usurped the Kingship, and proceeded to terrorize the world. He created the first empire- rule of foreign power over others- and replaced the system of maintaining social order through moral cultivation with a policing system; as symbolized by the fragmenting of the body of Ausar into pieces, he separated religion from state, education, separated God from nature, from Man, separated spirit from physical matter, the divine from the mundane. In short, he instituted an insidious system of dividing and segregating all things and people from each other and the whole. He alienated Man from God, the world, and himself." 126.
"This dis-integrating effect …is what enables the person to separate his beliefs from his actions; he worries about his health, yet he smokes and eats junk food… the bible defines him as ‘a deceiver’. It is called Set in the Kamatic tradition. This is the origin of the Christian Sat-an, and even its color, red." 142-143.
"Experience in meditation will reveal that emotions are primarily states of mediumistic trance… what we call anger is a negative mediumistic trance… These negative thought/energy complexes are symbolized as Set and Aupep in Kamitian tradition." 144-145.
Our bodies are much more than we often give them credit for. They are our homes, our vehicles, they hold our lives in each and every part of them. And they remember so much that we forget, and know so much more than we think they do. Our bodies are like sponges, soaking up all of our experiences and reflecting our mindset. And like sponges, they need to get wrung out every once in a while. Bodies need both positive thought and physical care to function at their peak. To fully release negative experiences, we need to work them out of our bodies as well as well ad our minds. Ask anyone who gets a massage regularly; massage itself can bring to light changes we need to make in our lives. The art of massage therapy as a holistic health practice can address subconscious issues that have been pushed “out of mind” and wind up somewhere in the body just through healing touch. If they continue to be ignored, there they will stay, and cause increasing health issues. Do your mind and body a favor, and get a massage (preferably from someone licensed)!
If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.
we think we’re made of numbers. percentages on tests, pounds on a scale, likes on a photo, price tags on clothes. but we’re not. we are made of love and happiness and they way we laugh. we’re made of good memories and late nights and past-curfews. we have more substance than numbers.
i hate small talk
tell me about how lonely you are or tell me about why you keep waking up in the morning or talk to me about your mum’s eyes and your dad’s laugh. I don’t care about the weather and you don’t care about how my job’s going.
