"After the Flood -- Noah’s Golden Age"
Gemini and opposite Sagittarius
Eightth Day Circle

   The Twins of Gemini definitely show the unbalancing of the two kinds, man of the spiritual and man of the material. Dual forces separated as two distinct but mutually dependent forces, and a reality of the mystery of the twin soul. The Hebrew word for Gemini is Thaumin, which means "The United." Sagittarius may have been associated with Nergal, the arrow shooting god of II Kings 17:30 (Heb. nereghal, a Babylonian deity of destruction and disaster, associated with the planet Mars; A cylinder seal from Larsa, an ancient Sumerian city, c. 2360-2180 B.C., shows the god Nergal standing with one foot upon the body of an enemy.). Nunki was the Babylonian and Akkadian word for "The Prince of the Earth," which is Naim in the Hebrew for "The Gracious (One)."

   Noah means "rest" or "comfort," he was born to carry out the Tradition. In 2 Peter 2:5 "And spared not the world, but saved Noah, the eighth person a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly." Noah, had always walked with God, Genesis 6:9 "These are the generations of Noah; Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." By way of Noah the Jehovah Elohim was giving the Tradition a second chance.

   The waters of the flood destroyed all life except in Noah's "Ark." The Tradition here shows a closed vessel or container (tebah), referred to as an Ark laden with genetic material. Noah, his wife, three sons, their wives, a total of eight persons plus two of every living thing (specifically seven male and female of every clean beast and fowls). The eighth day, eighth person and eight souls saved, the number eight is very symbolic in relation to this age.

   The Ark rested on top of the mountains of Ararat (Heb. ararat). The extinct volcano which is called Mount Ararat with an altitude of 16,945 feet (5,168 meter) is located in eastern Turkey near the Iranian border. Armenia a region and former kingdom of Asia Minor in present-day northeast Turkey, southeast European U.S.S.R., and northwest Iran. Established in the eighth century B.C., it was probably the first state to adopt Christianity as a national religion (c. A.D. 303). Also Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic a constituent republic of southeast European U.S.S.R. in the southern Caucasus. It was acquired by Russia from Persia in 1828 and became a Soviet republic in 1921 and a constituent republic in 1936. Yerevan is the capital. Population, 3,317,000.

   Josephus reports that it was a certain mountain in Armenia. Berosus the Chaldean:--"It is said there is still some part of this ship in Armenia, at the mountain of the Cordyaeans; and that some people carry off pieces of the bitumen, which they take away and use chiefly as amulets for averting of mischiefs."

   Bitumen any of various flammable mixtures of hydrocarbons…
