The Terrible Symbolism of
The Constellation DRACO

INTRODUCTION by The M+G+R
This document is a complex one, since
it deals with Astronomy. We publish it because it is a chilling
reminder/confirmation of who the Prince of this World is: the dragon - satan.
Of course, Our Lord Jesus Christ overcame satan, the dragon, by
offering Himself as a Supreme Sacrifice, giving us the opportunity (not
the right but the opportunity), by joining Him, to have confidence and
assurance while in the world: In the world you shall have distress: but
have confidence, I have overcome the
and to have protection: I pray
not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou
shouldst keep them from evil. [John 17:15]
After digesting what the author of the document has graciously prepared
our readers will have no further doubt about who controls this World,
although this control is subject to the conditions set above, in John
16:33 and John 17:15.
As a reminder: The first step in defeating one's enemy is to
acknowledge its reality; then, the second step, which is as important
as the first, is to ensure one's positioning for safety: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most
High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [Psalm 91]
I would like to make a few observations
related to the constellation Draco
(the Dragon) cited on the September
7th, 2010 FYI&R page (1),
which I quote below:
must wonder if.... there is any relation between
the - obviously requested by God - Novena to St. Michael the
Archangel (see the FYI & R posting for September 6th (1)) and the fact
that the constellation Draco
the Dragon was highlighted as one of the "Top 10 Summer Sky Objects
to See Before Fall"? (2)
While most folks are familiar with
the Big and Little Dipper, in the same region of the sky is a long,
group of stars which portrays the mythological creature of a dragon
Draco, which during late evening hours is riding high above Polaris,
Draco is a very ancient star grouping.
The earliest Sumerians considered these stars to represent the dragon
it became one of the creatures that Hercules killed. One of Draco's
to guard the garden of Hesperides and its golden apples that Hercules
supposed to retrieve.
The Dragon's head is the most
conspicuous part of Draco.
Foundation comments: We presume that when they say "Top 10 Summer Sky Objects to See Before
Fall", "Fall" means Autumn....
The relative position of Draco
the Sun and the Zodiac
constellations may be seen as a drama in the theater of the sky,
position of God in charge of all things and the arrogant attitude of
opponent ("the dragon") wanting to be the center instead of God - and
more, wanting to be above God:
(a) As seen from the Solar System, the
constellations form a great circle around the Sun (the circle for which
astronomers give the name "ecliptic"). All the other stars are also
around the Sun, forming a sphere - without forgetting that the
the planets are the more natural if we leave the Sun in the center. The Sun is the true center of the scene. (4)
(b) The plane determined by the Zodiac circle cuts the celestial sphere
in two halves - two hemispheres. As a convention, we refer to a "north"
and a "south" hemisphere. (5)
If we project / represent said "north"
hemisphere on a plane, what we obtain is a star chart taking the form
of a circle. The contour of the circle matches with the Zodiac
constellations, while the interior is filled with other
stars/constellations and in the
center of the circle we find Draco
- as if all the stars were
"dancing" around Draco. (6)
(c) When considered in a
three-dimensional volume, if we take
Zodiac circle as an "equator" of the celestial sphere, then the "north
found to be just in the middle of the constellation Draco. If we follow
the usual convention that the "north" is understood as "up", then Draco is on the top of the
sphere, just on the top of a vertical line over the Sun. (7)
The symbolic reading may be that the real center (three-dimensional) of
the Zodiac constellations (the Creation participated in by mankind) and
of all the stars (souls) is the Sun (God). Meanwhile, the apparent
center (the result of a plane projection) is Draco (the dragon).
Furthermore, whether north is "upper" or not, depends on a human
agreement. Whether certain stars that are seen together represent a
"dragon" or something else, depends on a human agreement. Which means:
humans themselves are the ones who decide in which position they want
to place (or see) the dragon.
And there is more when we consider the Circle of Precession...
(d) The Earth's Axis of Rotation is
changing smoothly in a movement we know as
the Cycle of Precession (26,000 years long approx.), making the North
Pole to draw a circle
whose center lies... one more
time... in the middle of
To put it in other words for clarity: The (North) Circle of Precession
is parallel to the Ecliptic Circle. If we draw both in a plane,
we may see both as concentric circles - the Ecliptic Circle being the
perimeter and the Circle of Precession delimiting a central area.
Inside both circles, the central area is Draco.
(e) The astronomers have observed that the Circle of Precession is not
really a circle, but seems to be more like an spiral curve... inspiring
the thought that the Earth's
tends to point, along the ages, more and more towards matching with
the center of Draco.
The symbolism may be summarized as follows: While we - Mankind -
are spinning and spinning
the belief that we have our own axis (centered in man and not in God),
we do not realize that our axis
is turning around Draco - the
Once again the score is: satan (the dragon) 1 ; man (humanity) 0.
He duped the "wise men" of humanity to name the constellation
about which our axis turns after himself: "Draco".

constellation in the far northern sky. Its name is Latin for dragon.

the natural center of the celestial sphere and the
center of the Zodiac constellations as well

lays in the middle of Draco, and that the Zodiac constellations are on
the external circle).

North Ecliptic Pole, not to the North Celestial Pole.
