The Hero and the Dragon: Orion, Draco, and the Precession of the Equinoxes

Updated on September 10, 2017

Draco, Orion, and Precession

Every 26,000 years, the Hero slays the Dragon.

Thirteen thousand years ago, Draco was at it's highest point in the sky, and Orion was at it's lowest. Now, Orion is at it's highest, and Draco at it's lowest. The hero has slain the dragon.

This see-saw motion happens in a 26,000 year period, coinciding with the Precession of the Equinoxes. ( The Precession is canonically 25,920 years, but in reality varies somewhat. I deal with this in other articles).

Is this a coincidence? I think not. Not when there are so many other "coincidences" pertaining to the Earth, moon, and stars. This was set up this way. It is the only logical explanation.

Just as the Earth and moon were set up to fit a squared circle, just as the Nile was set up at the center of the landmasses of the Earth. Is it a simulation? Is it set up this way by God? I don't know. All I know is it IS set up.

So what is it about the Hero and the Dragon? Why does God want us to know and understand this "mythology"? I believe it is about spiritual growth. Overcoming the baser instincts. Developing the higher spiritual faculties. I think this is why we are here.

The Hero and the Dragon is a basic mythology found throughout many, if not all cultures. Even modern day culture. It is Osiris and Horus. It is George and the dragon. It is the Lion King. It is Star Wars. It is all the same story.

One full Precession ago, the Neanderthals died out. Why then? Two Precessions ago, humans reached modernity. Why then? What is going on with the Precessional cycles, and what does it mean for us? Are we reaching some kind of cultural change? Will we pass through it, or go the way of the Neanderthals?

What is the Precession of the Equinoxes?

The Precession of the Equinoxes, also called the Great Year, is the 25,920 year cycle of the Ages of the Zodiac. It is called precession, because the sun goes backwards through the signs during this long period. Due to a wobble in the Earth on it's axis, the sun will rise in a new sign every 2160 years on the spring equinox.

One "season" of three signs lasts 6480 years. There are four seasons in the Great Year, represented by the four cardinal points of the zodiac. Leo, summer. Taurus, autumn. Aquarius, winter. Scorpio, spring.

The numbers 25,920, 6480, and 2160 are canonical, and the Precession only follows this closely, not exactly. These are ideal numbers, and exist as archetypes in the Formative Plane.

There are 72 years per degree of Precession. There are 30 degrees for each sign. It is difficult to say exactly where each sign begins and ends, and there is no agreement on this point. We are somewhere near the end of the age of Pisces and the beginning of Aquarius.

How long the Precession has been known about is unknown. There is a book called Hamlet's Mill that suggests the Precession is recorded in mythology all around the world for thousands of years.

I once was given a dream about the Precession. I dreamed of two bears, a big one and a little one. The little one I threw down to it's death. I believe this was depicting the change of pole star, a the pole star is the tip of Ursa Minor's tail. I believe this dream was given to me by the Universe.

We are coming to a new age, the Age of Aquarius. The Age of Man. I think it will bring big changes. The last start of the Age of Aquarius 26,000 years ago was the beginning of the ice age maximum. It was also the time of the demise of the Neanderthals. I think it could mean a change in consciousness for human beings.

On the Cusp of the Ages of Aquarius and Pisces

We are currently on the cusp between the ages of Pisces and Aquarius. What is an Age? The Zodiac is divided into twelve unequal parts called constellations, or signs. Concerning Ages, we go backwards through the Zodiac. Currently, we are in the Age of Pisces, and we are going backwards towards the sign of Aquarius. It is hard to tell when one Age begins and another ends. It is easy to tell during the middle of an Age, because the spring sun will rise in a particular sign during the equinox. But if it is at the beginning or ending of an age, it is difficult to tell what sign the equinox sun is rising in.

Also, some of the sign constellations are larger than others. Thus, it is best to divide the ages into equal time amounts. As one full Precession of the Equinox is 25,920 years, each of the twelve signs is given 2160 years.

That means one Age is equal to 2160 years. This is celebrated in mythology, if you look and compare mythologies. The Bible portrays the end of Taurus and beginning of Aries with the story of Moses and the golden calf. Cows and bulls were worshipped around the time of the Age of Taurus. This is shown in Egyptian and Indian mythology. Jesus is represented by the fish symbol, and Jesus portrays the beginning of the Age of Pisces, the fish.

The Age of Aquarius is portrayed by a man pouring out water from a pitcher. What will this symbolism mean for the coming Age? Will it mean a new consciousness in the Age of Man? The Bible has a story about a man and a pitcher of water, in the story of Sodom and Gamora. Is this a tale of the coming Age of Aquarius?

There is no way to tell when the new age will start. All we can know is when we are near, and that time is now. We are exactly halfway in the Precession of the Equinoxes, give or take a few hundred years. Does this mean anything? Or is it all just mythology?
