The Deep State is not just a bunch of criminals that took over the government a few decades ago. The groups that make up this seedy organization have been around for thousands of years, practicing what we refer to today as dark occultism. They plan their agenda around astrology alignments, placing great emphasis on the positions of the stars. While you might not believe in these things, the powers that be most definitely do, with deadly and destructive effect. In 2019, there appear to be big moves ahead for the Deep State’s social engineering agenda, of which, false flags are one of their weapons of choice.
The season of sacrifice begins on March 19th, ending on May 1st.
Before discussion what that means, let’s consider the following.
A Few Notes About This Year
Mercury in Retrograde
Whether you think astrology is ridiculous or not doesn’t matter. The Deep State and the dark occult forces behind them most definitely take these things very seriously. You don’t have to believe in astrology to recognize their agenda and take steps to guard against it.
Mercury in retrograde marks the beginning of this year’s season of sacrifice.
If you don’t know, Mercury in retrograde refers to the closest planet to the sun reversing its course in the sky periodically throughout the year. It’s regarded as a time to avoid making any major decisions or starting any new projects. Mercury represents the mind, intellect, reason, communication, language, and logic—personified as the god of speed.

According to some experts, when Mercury is in its normal rotation, the energy it emits harmonizes with the left brain, making it the best time to make rational decisions and communicate effectively with others. Conversely, when in retrograde, the right brain is dominant. This is popularly regarded as a time when technology breaks down, communication becomes difficult, and social endeavors can be more challenging.
The Deep State might delay any major social engineering agendas that require decision making, propaganda efforts, or false flag attacks until after the 28th when Mercury returns to normal. That being said, the NZ shooting took place on March 14th, nine days into the retrograde period. If this supposition is true, that Mercury’s position is a factor in their plans, then the NZ shooting could be designed to affect the right brain processes more than the left, namely to generate intense emotional energy to be used later. Given the way the media is using the event to promote Deep State agendas, like gun control and censorship by emotional association, this is a substantive interpretation.
For more about how the Deep State uses emotions, ingroup-outgroup dynamics, and disgust programs (social taboos) against the people see the following related article.
It’s important to remember that when analyzing these factors we can’t make concrete black and white conclusions. We can draw inferences that suggest things could happen but without all the factors well defined and known, these may not hold true as time goes one. I would suggest the real benefit of this discussion is in the mutual education and raising of awareness we all enjoy through open-minded discourse.
The Trump Factor and the Mass Psychology of False Flags
Whether you like Trump or hate him, the POTUS appears to be working against the Deep State.
Note About Trump: To be clear, Stillness is not pro-Trump. Similarly, we are not anti-Trump either. We report on Trump’s activities and those who view him in a positive light so as to seek greater understanding of geopolitical events. We also post material that speaks negatively of Trump.
Many researchers suggest that the Deep State had no intentions of letting Trump win the 2016 presidential race. Since he took office, the propaganda media has seemingly pulled out all their weapons of mass distraction and confusion to divide the masses and prevent any progress toward unity for freedom. Whether you believe Trump is a “good guy” or not doesn’t matter. The Deep State considers him a threat, and as such, they are using their ancient tried and tested manipulation tools against the people with Trump as a vehicle of spreading hate and antagonism.
Consider as some evidence for this the Covington Kids case, Jussie Smollett’s fake hate crime hoax, and the utter failure of the Muller investigation to find any evidence of Russian collusion—but people still believe he collided. What this proves is that the manipulation of mass psychology has reached a point where, for the most part, anti-Trumpers no longer care about the truth, they only care about venting their rage and hate by any means necessary. As you see below, this is part of a formula for dividing people against themselves so that eventually open violence can destroy any unity. It’s accomplished by radicalizing a population through emotional triggering and scapegoating.
As a demonstration of this radicalization effect, consider that anti-Trumpers are becoming so incapable of any modicum of rational honest thought that they completely reject any reasonable stance on the previously cited demonstrably false stories.
The campaign is designed to make POTUS a scapegoat for everything that’s wrong with the world, particularly in the eyes of those blinded by what is appropriately termed Trump Derangement Syndrome. Once a person develops an irrational hatred of someone or something, that thing now becomes a magnet for all their venom—all their pent up frustration about everything in their lives. For example, Trump is being blamed for not solving the climate change problem.
The Mass Psychology of False Flags, Villian Creation, and Spreading Hatred Through Ancient Disgust Programs
The technique of blaming and scapegoating for social change is simple.
You make life hard and unfair for people. You create a villain as a scapegoat. You get people to associate their problems to that villain. You get them to invest that hatred socially, creating a culture of hate. And then, once people have formed a group identity around their hatred, they’ll irrationally reject any countering truth because to do so would rob them of a way to vent their rage, as well as making them outcast of their ingroup.
This technique is centered around two primal fears: the fear of loss of identity (sense of self) and the fear of social ostracization. These fears, once triggered, create such strong emotions that most people will avoid at all costs, even becoming violent and irrational to do so. They literally lose themselves in the act of protecting their sense of reality.
Creating Victim Narratives
Victim narratives are reinforced by the Deep State in various ways.
In order to do so, the Deep State rob people of healthy ways to deal with tragedy, which normally occurs through an active contemplative process that often involves a spiritual technique of exploration reconciliation. Without a way to make sense of your experiences, you are more easily triggered and traumatized after an incomprehensible experience—your life feels like a constant battle with strong negative emotions. Resultingly, you depend more on external stabilizing forces—Deep State explanations pushed by the mainstream media—to make sense of what happened.
In effect, the Deep State destroy the people’s ability to cope and grow from trauma, so that people become dependent on their destructive explanations designed to instantiate slave-think mentality, amongst other things. This method of mass mind influence is what priesthoods and despotic rulers have used for most of human history to control large populations, usually through major religions as the “external force” that robs the individual of their personal power to heal their own mind.
Why does this technique work?
Because the conclusions a person draws to help them explain a tragedy are extremely important in determining their mental health after an event takes place.
Generally speaking, the more spiritual your beliefs and world views you possess, the easier it is to cope in a healthy way, a conclusion supported by many psychological studies. Hence, if you have your own intrinsic spiritual practice, you’re a threat to the Deep State—which partially explains why so many prophets and spiritualists were shamed and killed throughout history.
The Deep State’s primary agenda, from a psychological standpoint, is to disturb your sense of reality, and then rebuild your mind by introducing beliefs that they want you to accept. This has been called Chaos Sorcery by researcher Mark Passio—who we’ll discuss in detail below.
A false flag is itself designed to do this, create extreme fear and emotions that make you very receptive to Deep State propaganda.
Villian Creation (Scapegoating)
Psychologically, hatred of a villain (the invocation of victimhood), is a powerful force for causing a mental disturbance. People can, and do, define themselves in terms of what they hate because it acts as a “glue” to stabilizing a disturbed personality, especially after experiencing a horrific trauma.
When a person experiences a catastrophic event that triggers their fight or flight response, often through the malevolence of another, they experience a disturbance of their personality structure. This is because, at a deep level, your sense of self is intimately tied to your beliefs and worldview—change those and you change the persona of the individual.
The anxiety felt during an event of malevolence can often cause PTSD due to an inability to reorganize one’s belief structure to accommodate the experience through contemplation.
For example, if you believe that people are fundamentally good, and someone physically assaults you with the intention to cause harm, this usually causes trauma in the moment from the assault. The very idea that the assault could happen at all, the archetypical concept that is a world view, is what is the most damaging long term (e.g. most people struggle to understand how the world can be so horrible). Without a good answer, most people developing victim narratives to help them cope, which is precisely the intention of the Deep State.
One of the best examples of the creation of a victim narrative as a method of coping with a world we can’t understand is the concept of original sin.
Life is hard. Nature seems cruel. People are corrupt. What does that say about the nature of existence? For most of human history, and in varying forms, the way people reconciled or explained the hardships of life was by assuming humanity lost favor with some God or deity. Thus, the historical precedent of this mass psychological phenomenon becomes a point of evidence to understand how and why the Deep State is so keenly interested in shaping your beliefs.
A victim narrative is one side of the mass mind control program. The other side is the villain that is causing the victimization.
As was stated above, villain creation is easier in the sense that, once a person is in a triggered state, they’ll look for anyone and anything they can to blame and make themselves feel better. Due to deeper aspects of the human psyche, inherited from animal neurology, most people avoid taking any personal responsibility for the tragedy, looking for a scapegoat to discharge all their frustration. All you need to do is tell people that their pain and suffering is because of this person, place, or thing, (the villain) and most people will gladly accept the opportunity to finally have a place to vent their upset, and in doing so, gain peace of mind.
Ancient Disgust Programs
The following is an excerpt from an article discussing how our innate animal disgust instincts can be weaponized against us.
A disgust mechanism is an ancient tool used to incentivize the avoidance of threat in the environment. In nature, an animal is compelled to avoid a rotting piece of food because it smells bad. The smell triggers a response in the brain that generates strong negative emotions, which are then associated with the object in question. The same fundamental mechanism is at work in human beings, but with a twist.
Due to the fact human beings possess a reflective and self-referencing mind, a person’s disgust mechanism can be weaponized against them. By that, I mean, humans are not just disgusted by physical things, like the smell of rotting garbage, they’re also disgusted by ideas and the people that are associated with them. In society, we call these taboos and the people that dare to entertain them as deplorables, the unclean. Additionally, people are also influenced by ingroup dynamics—we are strongly motivated to gain acceptance in a social group, so much so, when confronted with the choice to form a strong opposing opinion or go along with the crowd, most people choose the crowd.
What’s more, disgust responses are extremely strong and ancient emotional triggers. They shut down holistic brain function, and divert blood flow away from the neocortex, toward the animalistic emotional centers of the brain. In short, when you feel a disgust response, your mind stops thinking rationally and operates out of emotion only. You go into fight or flight mode, ultimately seeking to destroy and stamp out the thing you have identified as revolting.
The way the strategy works is fairly simple.
Create a social group formed around a set of values, truths, and cultural beliefs.
Make people feel accepted by that social group by espousing or identifying with the specified beliefs.
Engineer or use a real event, that is seen by the social group as reprehensible, associating it to the target you’re trying to ostracize, decry, or smear.
Use emotional appeals and moral panic tactics to associate the target to the reprehensible act—without citing any hard evidence.
Promote a moral panic that is directed at the target so it becomes part of the belief systems of the social group. Now, if you don’t believe what the group does, you’re an outcast. (Think: hatred for people who don’t hate Trump).
This formula has been used for centuries to steer public opinion. It is a very old and effective strategy that draws upon instantiated biological programs and fundamental psychological aspects of human nature.
Examples of this method can be found in war propaganda from WWI.
In these examples, the horrible act of killing or eating babies is at center stage, activating the disgust response in onlookers. Once done, the strong emotions of revulsion are associated with the villain depicted in the image, in this case, a German soldier. The energy charge of the emotions overwhelms the rational process of investigation, causing most people to invest themselves fully in the belief that the villain is the cause. At this point, the propaganda or mind control tactic has achieved its goal: the person now feels a strong personal desire to discharge their upset, through a presumed moral justification to do violence against the target. They now act like Deep State pawns, telling everyone around them that if they don’t believe what they do, they must be part of the problem.
Neurologically, the centers of the brain that measure social status and ingroup acceptance are hardwired.
When you feel as if you might be losing social standing, the amygdala triggers, causing an extreme fight or flight response, activating the sympathetic nervous system. These are the intense feelings of abandonment you feel when breaking up with a partner, losing a loved one to death, or being horribly embarrassed by your peers. These same centers are active when you experience physical torture. The point is that these ancient animalistic mechanisms are designed to shut down the rational higher evolved processes of the human brain.
Engineered Mass Hysteria and Divide and Conquer Tactics
Why is the psychology of manipulation important to understand? Because by understanding how these things take place we can develop countermeasures against them.
We’re hardwired to favor ingroup status, so much so, most people will take part in horrific acts to maintain your sense of acceptance when in a large social group. As evidence of this consider what mobs do when excited to violence, like mass rape, beatings, and destruction of property, which are effects of ingroup mass hysteria (e.g. Soccer Riots and the raping and pillaging of Germans by the Alliance forces in World War II).
The Deep State know exactly how to trigger your social protection mechanisms, the ones that compel you to avoid rational thought in favor of staying close to your perceived social group. What we’re seeing right now, in the realm of politics, is a phase of carefully manufacturing mass hysteria for the purpose of furthering the Deep State’s agenda.
The way this strategy works is that you take a symbol of freedom, Trump in this case, and use it to create division within a population, increasing tension until both sides are so divided a catalyzing event can be introduced to cause massive unrest, even civil war. This catalyzing event could be totally manufactured or organic—as long as it furthers the division agenda that’s all that matters.
In the anatomy of a false flag, or any major mobilization of political opinion and sentiment for the purpose of creating social change, there are seven phases of emotional influencing, according to Psychohistorian Lloyd DeMause in his seminal book The Origins in War and Child Abuse.
- FREEDOM: Increasing independence, innovations, growth of real self
- FEAR: Growth panic, loss of parental approval, disintegration of real self
- FISSION: Splitting into “in-group” and “out-group”
- FUSION: Merging with powerful punishing Killer Motherland
- FRACTURE: Projection of Bad Self into helpless victim “enemy”
- FAKED PROVOCATION: Faking a provocative attack by an “enemy”
- FIGHT: Becoming the “Hero” of the Killer Motherland and being sacrificed for Her while killing the Bad Self “enemy”
1. FREEDOM: Increasing independence, innovations, growth of real self
A society is encouraged to explore new ideas without too much interference from top down controllers. The goal is to let people organically create opinions and beliefs that will later be relabeled as reprehensible and disgusting, along with the people who talk about them. People form social groups around new ideas, which will then be labeled as “hate groups” later in the process.
2. FEAR: Growth panic, loss of parental approval, disintegration of real self
Alongside the freedom phase, a population of traditionalists begins to rage against the new ideas, creating the first signs of social division. The traditionalists are often made fun of or not taken seriously during this phase, giving the new thinkers more time to further their ideas, socializing them to create groups around various concepts. To further this process, the introduction of an opposing view entrenches each side’s position. Instead of ideas being shared freely without association to a group or individual, the newly introduced antagonism causes both sides to identify with the ideas at deep level, making free form discussion without strong negative emotional charge very difficult. In other words, people stop having reasonable debates about new ideas, and start using ad hominin attacks to “win” discussions. Finally, this is when the first seeds of a “moral panic” are introduced, as traditionalists or the new thinkers begin to frame their position as the only morally just one.
3. FISSION: Splitting into “in-group” and “out-group”
As the opposing sides lose the ability to share their ideas in an honest, fair, and compassionate way, hatred and antagonism increase within each group. This causes a “fusion” of ideas and ingroup status, that is, people begin to identify each other as proponents or antagonists of any given position, and therefore group association, using labels and name calling as a way to draw hard lines of group preference. Consider how identity politics works, reducing complex issues into pro or anti stances, such as pro-gun or anti-abortion, which are both examples of topics that are almost impossible to discuss productively in today’s sociopolitical environment. In this phase, people cease to discuss the actual issues and instead use their positions as excuses to rage against each other for things that often have nothing to do with the original issue.
4. FUSION: Merging with powerful punishing Killer Motherland
The killer motherland is a term DeMause uses to refer to the mass psychological delusion of the state acting as a hero for the people’s personal stances and positions. There’s more to the psychology to understand insofar as how personality alters play a role in this process. For now, the main point is that as each group becomes increasingly irrational about promoting their position, they seek a “hero” that they can depend on to represent their beliefs, and most importantly, squash dissenting opinion. During World War II, Hitler was the “hero” who blamed the problems of the Germans on “the villain” of the Jews. The important part of this phase is that the state takes a side. This begins the process of making the opposing side the outcast, making them the villains who must be sacrificed for the good of the ingroup. We’re in this phase with respect to anti-Trump sentiment, as those against him have lost all rationality and openly call for violence against Trump and anyone who supports him.
5. FRACTURE: Projection of Bad Self into helpless victim “enemy”
An enemy needs to be associated with reprehensible ideas, creating a personified villain. The now thoroughly distorted minds of the ingroup state-sanctioned population begin appending any and all grievances to the selected villain. Here, anything that can “stick” to the villain is thrown at them. Subconsciously, the ingroup, emboldened by the state’s endorsement, begin the process of mustering their rage so violent action can be taken. As a marker of progress, innocence or helpless victims are now used as scapegoats, usually because they can be associated with the grand villain identified before. For example, the Covington kids and other young “helpless victims” who support Trump were targeted with threats of violence merely for supporting POTUS. What this demonstrates is that the hatred is ripening, ready to be activated and directed toward the outgroup.
6. FAKED PROVOCATION: Faking a provocative attack by an “enemy”
This phase is all about false flags or manipulating events either directly or through media coverage. The war posters above are an example of provocation, designed to incite the desire for vengeance. Presently, the media is spinning any event they can so that it can be used to justify targeting Trump, Trump supporters, and any other person or group that isn’t in alignment with the Deep State and its ranks of unthinking dupes in the ingroup.
7. FIGHT: Becoming the “Hero” of the Killer Motherland and being sacrificed for Her while killing the Bad Self “enemy”
This is the final phase where all the pent up rage and false self-righteousness of the ingroup is directed violently toward the outgroup. The outgroup is “innocent” in that they aren’t responsible for whatever false flag is associated with them. We’ve already seen some examples of this with ANTIFA and other radical groups committing violence against Trump supporters. We have yet to see the catalyzation of the ingroup in a grand way. The ultimate goal of this phase is for the ingroup and the outgroup to begin open warfare. While we’re not here yet, we’re very close. At present, most ingroup anti-Trumpers are so irrational, employers are now firing workers for their political views, and family members are being disowned for their opinions.
The preceding is a very short exposé of a weaponized moral panic.
With this knowledge in hand, we can now begin to discuss the Season of Sacrifice.
The term false flag attack is used by researchers of geopolitical events to refer to covert operations or psychological warfare tactics used by governments, and other clandestine bodies, to steer political opinion, start wars, or force change in society. In military terms, they are also known as Deceptive Indications and Warnings or Covert Operations.
Note: While some researchers contend that all false flag attacks are completely made up or fabricated, this is not what this article is attempting to portray. In fact, in most cases, it seems that almost all events labeled false flag attacks involved real people who were hurt or killed. That said, there are a handful of these attacks that do appear to be completely fabricated. And in almost all cases, the media is complicit in promoting a narrative that skews the attack in a way that can be used to manipulate public opinion. Consider the Parkland Florida Shooting that was used by a majority of the media and politicians to push for gun control measures. False flag attacks also tend to employ what are called crisis actors, or people who seem to be “acting” at different events, using different names, that sensationalize what happened to help push an agenda. To be sure, this is a very complex discussion and no one should assume that Stillness is taking a black and white stance—we’re merely presenting a body of research for you to consider.
While the mainstream news has made every effort to suppress knowledge of false flags—labeling stories like this “fake news,” the reality is they are well known and accepted forms of warfare. Governments have admitted that these operations take place, usually long after the manipulation is successful, see these 42 examples here.
Where Is This Headed?
While this topic is hotly contested, even in the alternative media, anyone with an honest effort can easily prove to themselves that false flag attacks are real. An even harder to accept fact is that the psychopathic elite who run the world, more or less, promote a satanic ideology to the masses, and themselves consider these mass manipulation events a form of dark ritual.
In the 1990s, Mark Passio, a former Satanist priest, was exposed to a lower level order of what he terms Dark Occultism. Passio says he was a misguided teenager who rebelled against his Roman Catholic upbringing, gravitating toward LaVeyan Satanism. Anton Lavey appointed Passio to the position of priest in the Church of Satan, on none other than March 19th, the date that marks the beginning of the season of sacrifice. Passio, who attended many grotto meetings during his involvement says that members of the Satanic organization openly stated that they had been and would continue to enslave the planet, using various methods. In other words, they admit to being the perpetrators of these insidious agendas and events.
Although all this sounds like a wild conspiracy theory, it only takes a bit of research to build a valid case for what Passio asserts. If you doubt him, I strongly encourage you to watch the below presentation, for which I was in attendance, wherein he painstakingly describes the religion of the dark elite and how it operates.
All this is important to comprehend when considering the weeks ahead, especially insofar as why the power that be do the things they do. As Passio states, whether or not this sounds plausible or believable to you isn’t important. These people do believe these things and they act on these beliefs to great effect.
The Proof is Staggering
As a basis for what follows, consider that the vast majority of Americans believe the lie that is the official story of the September 11th, 2001 attacks. A team of engineers, who are experts in their fields, concluded that there is no possible way the official story is scientifically credible.
Given the evidence, why would the official investigators lie? It’s pretty simple, it acts as a cover-up for what really happened while being used as a basis to push an agenda. In other words, 9/11 could be the most obvious and glaring example of a false flag in human history.
Consider how quickly and drastically the policy of the US shifted after the event, and how easily people cried out for measures of this sort to give them some peace of mind.
The 9/11 attacks, whether committed at the hands of US insiders or genuine Islamic terrorists, were used as a pretext to greatly expand intelligence services, start multiple illegal wars against sovereign nations, institute draconian policies limiting constitutionally protected rights of Americans, and expand military operations throughout the world.
The following is a detailed presentation of why the next few weeks, between March 19th and May 1st, is known as the Dark Occult season of sacrifice. The bulk of this research was compiled by Mark Passio and presented herein in summary format by myself, Justin Deschamps.
The fact is, every year since this article was originally published, in 2016, false flag attacks have taken place within days of March 19th, and throughout the 40 day period thereafter.
Please do your research and consider this information carefully.
By all accounts what is presented in this article is a valid and compelling case for the reality of a hidden Cabal and how they use their power to manipulate the people. With this knowledge, we can be empowered to take a stand, firstly by not falling victim to divide and conquer tactics, and secondly, by using our mutual desire for truth and justice to take defensive actions against the Deep State.
There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself. ~ Senator Daniel Inouye (source)
Note: When sharing this information with others it is suggested that you avoid using it as a hammer. From a psychological perspective, the human mind believes what it does because beliefs shield the individual against the chaos of the unknown. Sharing this highly triggering information should be done with tact, care, and patience. No one should be forced to accept what they can’t understand within the space of a short discussion. Those of us with the knowledge to share have an onus to do so with honor and respect of others. And the better we share our wisdom with grace, the more likely it will be seriously considered.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Our world is awash with subtle influences, indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, and deception—all designed to make us feel disempowered so that we become willing pawns for a global elite.
As many know, false flag attacks have become all too frequent in modern times. The targets of these attacks are the minds of the people by way of elaborate rituals, theater, and illusion, for the purpose of deceiving the population into accepting a false version of reality. Once this has been accomplished, an individual will become a willing participant in the matrix of control.
For all intents and purposes, the people have had a spell cast on them, they have become the victims of black magic, which is always an attempt to compel an individual to act as an agent of the magician, usually without their conscious consent.
But the good news is, with knowledge comes power, and with discernment comes immunity to manipulation.
The following is meant to empower the individual with knowledge so as to avoid being deceived or manipulated. In all likelihood, there will be a false flag attack committed against the people in the coming days and weeks. Take the time now to prepare by gaining knowledge, which will blossom into wisdom with experience.
What is the Season of Sacrifice?
The season of sacrifice is a 40-day period between March 19th and May 1st. Its name was coined by the Dark Occultists of this world, otherwise known as the Cabal, Illuminati or NWO, who believe that the earth must be bathed in the blood of innocents to ensure a fruitful harvest and to invoke an archetype of the destructive forces of the universe.
Historically speaking, there are a great number of battles, wars, false flag attacks and tragic events that have occurred during this 40-day season of the year. And in most cases, the people were used as pawns to further the agenda of a despotic sycophantic elite.
As a demonstration of this, consider that governments have already admitted to committing over 42 false flag attacks in the past century.
The season of sacrifice is intimately connected to astrotheology and its modern-day constituent astrology, also known as celestial mechanics. Although the notion of astrology has been ridiculed for centuries within mainstream circles, behind closed doors, the elite not only recognized these influences but incorporate them in their agenda for world domination and power.
Mark Passio is a former Satanist Priest and insider who began blowing the whistle about his experiences several years ago. Since that time, he has amassed a breathtaking amount of information related to the occult, which he regularly presents in weekly podcasts as well as conferences. As Passio states, despite the fact that the term occult has become synonymous with evil, the word simply means hidden.
The following is a presentation of the occult basis behind the season of sacrifice, as presented by Mark Passio in Podcast #149, expanded and added to by me when appropriate. This is crucial information to understand for those seeking to gain freedom from a seemingly never-ending onslaught of social programming and indoctrination.
The masses have been used as pawns as a result of endemic ignorance. Knowledge and understanding are the best tools to inoculate ourselves against manipulation. And once done, we can spread the truth far and wide so as to ensure others are also not deceived.
12 Signs or Houses of the Zodiac
The season of sacrifice is based on the 12 signs of the Zodiac. The Zodiac is a time measurement system used by ancient cultures as a method of tracking the movement of celestial bodies over a course of time with our planet as a center point. As the earth moves around the sun, the position of planets and our star changes in the sky and this can be tracked using the zodiacal system.
This system can be used for small time periods, like a single year or much larger spans of time, like a Great Cycle or Year (approximately 26,000 years). In either case, the constellation behind the sun as it rises determines which house of the zodiac or sign the Earth is under or in. For example, on March 19th or 20th, the Sun will rise in the constellation of Aires the Ram, anyone born under this sign would be associated with the constellation Aires, until April 17th when the Sun rises in the house of Taurus. (Note: In astrology, the actual sign that rises behind the sun has shifted since the system was originally developed ages ago. But by and large modern-day astrologers use the historical system.. The “true sign” rising on a given day is known by many names, such as Vedic astrology.)
Each day of the year has a zodiacal constellation associated to it, which the ancients (and the Cabal) believe have a profound influence on an individual’s life, as well as the planet at large.
Here is an image of the 12 signs of the Zodiac plotted over a one year cycle. In this image are two crosses at 45º angles with each other, marking the four seasons and their midpoints, which have occult significance.

The season of sacrifice begins when the sign of Pisces transitions to Aries, at approximately the same time as the spring equinox on March 21st. May 1st is the midpoint of the sign of Taurus, marking the end of this sacrificial period with the pagan holiday of Walpurgisnacht.
Seasons Marked by Vertical and Horizontal Lines
The Zodiac also marks the seasons of the year by using vertical and horizontal lines, corresponding to the height of the sun in the sky as it moves throughout the year.
The term Equinox means equal night. The angle of the sun with respect to the Earth’s equator, during the equinoxes, is zero degrees; these two points of the Zodiac are on either side of a horizontal line. These are the two times of the year when day and night are equal, falling on the seasonal transitions of spring and fall.
When the sun reaches the highest or lowest point in the sky, it is known as the seasons of winter or summer, marked on the Zodiac by either end of a vertical line, respectively. The lowest position of the Sun, from a northerly perspective represented by the lowest point in the zodiac is between Sagittarius and Capricorn, on December 21st. The highest position of the Sun is represented by the highest point in the Zodiac, between Gemini and Cancer, on June 1st.
On a standard globe, used in geography, one can find the lines marked the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. These represent the maximum southern and northern points of the Sun as it moves in the sky throughout the year. When the Sun reaches the angle of 23.5ºN with respect to the equator, the summer solstice begins, entering the sign of Cancer. When the sun reaches the angle of 23.5ºS with respect to the equator, the winter solstice begins, entering the house of Capricorn.
The year can be further broken down into the season of life, marked by the sun’s emergence from the southern hemisphere on the spring equinox, and the season of death, marked by the sun’s recession into the southern hemisphere on the fall equinox. Within these two seasons, the archetypal story of the zodiac is told as an allegorical tale of the symbolic creatures associated with each of the 12 houses or signs. The progression of the zodiac is a symbolic system representing the evolution of consciousness, for an individual and the planet at large.
The Minor and Grand Crosses of the Zodiac
The Minor Zodiacal Cross is created by four quadrants of the Zodiac marked by the beginning of the four seasons, forming four cross sections (the seasons we recognize from the calendar):
- March 21st (Spring);
- June 21st (Summer);
- September 21st (Autumn); and
- December 21st (Winter).
The Grand Cross ir Galactic Cross is created by four quadrants of the Zodiac marked by the midpoints of the seasons. These times were each marked by Sabbats or the time for performing sacred rites:
- May 1st (Walpurgisnacht – representing fertility, the emergence of life, and an offering of sacrifice of some kind to ensure a bountiful harvest);
- August 1st (Lammas – representing a time of gratitude, pre-harvest thankfulness, and a celebration of bounty and life);
- October 31st (Samhain – representing a time of reflection and self-respect, honoring the dead, contemplation of impermanence and death, and a time of preparation for winter); and
- February 2nd (Candlamas – representing prediction, a time of looking forward, planning for the future, making resolutions, and the time when the darkest and coldest period of the winter is about to end).
By combining the Minor Cross point of March 19th with the Grand Cross point of May 1st, a 40-day period is defined, outlining the window of time known as the Season of Sacrifice.
The sun’s movement in the sky produces seasonal changes and resulting effects on life. These cycles were highly revered and studied by the ancients, which placed great importance on harmonizing human life with the stars.In modern times, society at large has lost touch with these allegorical systems of death and rebirth that represent the evolution of consciousness in the universe, but the elite most assuredly know of these things—and use them to their advantage.
Masonic Tracing Board and the Zodiac
The zodiac and Masonic tracing board are intimately connected. Both are symbolic expressions (conceptual models) of the sun’s movement and transformation as it progresses throughout the year. The Masonic tracing board, despite the contentions of some that it is negative due to its association with Freemasonry, can be positively interpreted to represent the evolution of consciousness.
Passio also produced an extensive presentation discussing the evolution of consciousness as depicted in Light Occultism; see the below-linked article for more.
For now, those who have knowledge of the truth must become beacons of hope, shining the light of truth in all the dark places.
