Quotes

“Lucifer as the Morning Star…isn't merely the fallen Angel Lucifer but also the Brother of Christ. Saturn in his highest octave is deepest Wisdom incarnate concerning maturation via suffering. Salvation awaits even behind his Dark Gate”. So Saturn and the Sun are two different avenues to Salvation, but both involve the Path of Suffering.
