In 1894 the Indian astronomer, Sri Yukteswar, wrote that the cause of the procession of the equinox was the result of our sun’s orbit around another star. He estimated the orbit period at 24,000 years. This long cycle is the same concept as Plato’s Great Year, as well as the Maya Long Count calendar.
The deeper occult (hidden) meaning of the PRE-Christian cross, and it’s 4 cardinal points, are of great importance in esoteric astrology and astro-theology. This understanding is the essence behind the symbol most famously referred to as the “Swastika” in Sanskrit (卐), the symbol and its meaning pre-dates written Sanskrit itself. Astro-theology is the study of the astronomical influence on religion. The ancient Greeks associated the Swastika with the sun god Apollo, exemplifying the symbol’s historic and universal use as a solar emblem.
The Fixed Cross, consisting of the four constellations, has the same four signs regarded in the Christian belief as the four living creatures of the prophet Ezekiel. These four had the face of a man, Aquarius; the body of a lion, Leo; the horns of an ox, Taurus; and the wings of an eagle, Scorpio. The Eagle was astrologically interchangeable with Scorpio. These same 4 fixed signs of the zodiac are symbolized in the four evangelists, and in the four beasts of Revelations.
