Ophiuchus the Serpent Holder

Ophiuchus is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name comes from the Greek Ὀφιοῦχος-” serpent-holder and it is represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations.

Ptolemy was a Greek astronomer who lived in Egypt and in the year 147AD compiled the ‘Almagest’ from ancient Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek knowledge. Today this work is still the most reliable source regarding the Babylonian period. Ptolemy at that time gave the names and drawings of 48 constellations, 13 of which were located on the Ecliptic plane of Earth. Today we have 88 constellations in the sky named but still only 13 of these are on the ecliptic plane. It was formerly referred to as Serpentarius, a Latin word meaning the same as its current name.

The sun follows an ecliptic line through the sky, passing through the signs of the Zodiac. The thirteen constellations on the ecliptic plane are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces and these 12 are the common Zodiac. Ophiuchus, which is not reflected in the general Zodiac, is the 13th constellation.

Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is linked to a real man. This man lived in ancient Egypt around the 27th century BCE, and his name was Imhotep (following the pattern of Enki). Many of the same attributes of Imhotep can also be found in the Biblical Hebrew man Joseph, son of Jacob. Imhotep is credited with many accomplishments including the knowledge and use of medicine. It is said that Imhotep brought the art of healing to mankind. The symbol of a serpent, which is still widely used today to represent the medical profession, was used to represent Imhotep.

The sign of Ophiuchus is patterned after the original ‘Serpent Holder’ who is Lord Enki, a Sumerian creator god. Imhotep who was known to the Greeks as Asclepius was an incarnation of Enki who was the originator of the Ophiuchus pattern.

You can easily find the connection between Imhotep and Asclepius, even if many delusional Greeks and others are lost in the false matrix (that Homer spread like Anu/Uranus revealed to us) that believe what everything is Greek, may disagree that Asclepius was an Egyptian before becoming known to the Greeks, like almost all of their gods that originated from Babylon and almost all of their great teachers were initiates of either the Babylonian, Persian and Egyptian (or all) mystery schools.

The Sun passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus every year between November 22nd and December 25th that is the “Holiday Season”. The Christmas holiday celebrates the birth of Christ. “Christ” consciousness as well when achieved within a human body, is astrologically represented by the constellation of Ophiuchus.

Currently we are shifting from the Age of Pisces toward the Age of Aquarius. These shift also indicate archetypal shifts. When an equinox or solstice enters a new constellation, it signals a “New Age”.

What will occur within the New Age is that humanity will begin to realize her connection with the universal organism and embody the full potential of the archetype of Ophiuchus-Christ that will give birth to the golden age of Aquarius.

When we work with the energies of the Serpent on a conscious level we take on the attributes of the sacred serpent; we are able to heal and regenerate and give birth to ourselves for this is exactly what the serpent does and symbolizes. We begin to see the illusions that we have clung to which has fed our ego and fears and all that we have externalized we project them onto others. We do this not only as a form of transferred emotions but also because we need to ‘see’ what is happening within us on the outside.

When we begin the journey of healing this tendency to be fragmented and separate from the divine and the divinity within, including the separation of our body from spirit, we begin to truly awaken and take on the wisdom of the Serpent. We are able to unite with those in humanity who have also begun their journey to wakefulness. Finally we are free to co-create with our fellow brothers and sisters and reach surpass self and society limiting beliefs and begin our ascent to oneness.
