So you thought Adonis was only a dead god from the myths of our ancestors? Well, he is alive and well! And now you can listen to a radio show I did about a new day for the fertility god of old!
Here’s my pre-show write up:
When the sun sets, the stars come out to play with the moon. They sweep across the sky and the people fall asleep, dreaming of fear, glory, flight, lust, and whatever else lies for us in that other world. Eventually a new dawn rises upon humanity and things begin again as people wake up to the world around them. Life springs forth in all its glory and the good people rejoice.
It is amazing how much the show turned out like the seductive description, but not altogether in the ways I planned.
Before getting into the Greek God Adonis, let’s first explore the Hebrew version Adonai, especially considering that the brave Indian/Avatar Charlie recently revealed his Jewish ancestry.
Adonai is the plural of Adon, meaning “Lord, Lord, LORD, master, or owner” (the word Adon derives from a Ugaritic word meaning “lord” or “father”). In the Tanakh, the word Adon can refer to men and angels as well as to the LORD God of Israel (e.g., Exodus 34:23). God is called the “Lord of lords”(Deuteronomy 10:17) and Psalm 8:1 mentions God as “YHVH our Lord.”
The plural form Adonai, like the plural form Elohim, is regularly used with singular verbs and modifiers, so it is best to construe the Name as an “emphatic plural” or “plural of majesty.” When the plural is formed using a singular possessive ending (“my Lords”), it always refers to God, and occurs over 300 times in the Tanakh in this form. (Hebrew for Christians)
ADONAI is 105 in Jewish Gematria, along with: GODLIKE (DOGLIKE), GREECE, PEN, ENDING, ET, MOLE, PEACE CHIEF.
Let’s now consider the simple English value of ADONAI (44): YNDA, FAITH, KARMA, RAY, HOPE, GODHEAD, MAGICK, TALK, FUEL, ADVICE, BOAZ, SET, NUDE (DUNE), MASK.. Obama is the 44th president, the Obama girl and her DDs (44s) helped him get elected, and stamps are currently 44 cents. There is also the 4,400 TV show wherein masses of people are sprayed with an “alien” chemical that turns some into godlike beings, while it culls the rest.
Since we’re already into the gematria, let’s also take care of the Greek ADONIS. The name is 194 in Jewish gematria, along with: EARTH (HEART), RABBIT, CREATE, ACHILLE’S HEEL, SEEDS, CAPITAL, and PLEIADIAN DNA.
In simple English the 62 of ADONIS corresponds to: ELOHIM, MASON, SHARP, FLIGHT, JORDAN, MADONNA, DOLLAR, ENEMY, POOP, GENOCIDE, RIGHT, LEGION, BREAK A LEG, JAY Z, P DIDDY, BORDER, THINK, HOST, ENTER, HEARING, AUDIENCE, QUEEN, FLIGHT. Adding the indefinite article of A(1) brings the value up to the 63 of AVATAR and YHVH, which I explored in a recent post because it corresponds to my last name – HUNT.
The story is that Adonis was a lovely young hunter god, adored by the goddesses. In particular, Aphrodite and Persephone loved him something fierce..
The two goddesses are at each others’ throats about this and so Zeus (or maybe Calliope in Zeus’ name) steps in and decides they should split him up. He also had a little respect for Adonis’ own agency in that he gave him a third of a year to himself as well as a third to each goddess. Only thing is, he decided to spend that third of a year with Aphrodite (which really pissed Persephone off, but, really, who needs more Death?). Now Artemis gets pissed off too. (What? What’s Artemis doing here?) Hard to say why, maybe she thought a young hunter like Adonis should be hanging out with her. Anyway, she sent a wild boar and he was just a bit too much for Adonis who was gored and, despite Aphrodite’s best intentions..
(I blame an-Al Gore!)
Record skips. Start over. Another version says that Adonis grows up with nymphs. I think that’s interesting, but you probably don’t [yes I do!], so we’ll move on. One day, Aphrodite sees Adonis hunting and gets the hots for him. Things go well until a tragic hunting accident with a wild boar, same ending, he dies. (Except, the boar was sent by a jealous Ares – lover of Aphrodite – or possibly even a pissed off Apollo getting back at Aphrodite, the bitchy way, for blinding his son.) But thanks to a deal, he can still spend a third of a year with Aphrodite above ground. In some versions.
What does it all mean? Oh meaning. Really impossible to say. However, what is relevant is that the boar was super important. Pigs were sacrificed to Aphrodite – probably somehow connected to this story. Also, “pig” is the ancient greek equivalent of “pussy” and YES I DO think you should read this story as a moral story of what happens when women – with their sexuality and whatnot – are more powerful than the men they hook up with. You can go ahead and think about that and I’m happy to talk about it with you, but I’m not going to explain any more here for fear of losing my audience. So pigs. And flowers! Dead men often turn into flowers, I find (think of Narcissus, Hyacinth, etc). Adonis turns into anemones and roses – more specifically, it’s his blood that makes them red (each depending on its own version).
A-Don can be a Don Corleone or a Don JUan, the Godfather of crime or love. “Don Juan” is also phonetically similar to “dawn wand,” words that have sexual connotations, like the rising and falling Phoenix.
There’s even some cool stuff that talks about this myth not so much as a fertility myth, but as this kind of creepy explanation/sweetening of a a person deliberately sacrificed and buried to help the crops grow. Funk and Wagner describe this as “symbolism of the god killed by [hu]man[kind] for [hu]man[kind] with the resulting mystery of his resurrection promising life to [hu]man[kind].” Not surprisingly, this one got smushed in a lot with the Christian Jesus story pattern. Also not surprisingly, the ritual of Adonis took place around the same time as Easter. (The Myth of Adonis)
A-DyonIsis on the cross? Blood of wine and body of bread. In the above picture, the church steeple is facing us, perpendicular to the ground, the pyramid face is moving away from us as it moves up, and the water from The Fountain is level on the ground. These seem to be representations of the same concept. And if it wasn’t obvious enough, ADONI can be said as “a dawn eye.”
Don Quixote sounds a lot like “Dawn-Key Ho-Tay” or possibly “Donkey Hot-e.” The Wikipedia’ entry on Don Quixote lets us know something very pertinent about this “seminal” work: Cervantes’s most important source, however, appears to have been Apuleius’s The Golden Ass, one of the earliest known novels.
ANUS -> A SUN. ANUS is 330 in English gematria, which is clearly distinct from simple. 33 actually looks like a visual representation of buttsex.. or maybe 4 boobs. THE=33.
Obama, the JackAss Demo-c-rat, is ushering in a new day in America. Tinkerbell and her magic wand, the Holy Wood, are helping to loosen things for a smooth transition into a (W)hole New World. Tin-Ker-Bell’s name is important because tin is the alchemical metal of Jupiter (42), Bell is related to Ba’al and Re-bel (think Liberty Bell), and Ker (also found in Ker-Mit) could relate to the Sumerian notion of Kur:
One of the most difficult groups of concepts to identify and interpret is that represented by the Sumerian word kur. That one of its primary meanings is “mountain” is attested by the fact that the sign used for it is actually a pictograph representing a mountain. From the meaning “mountain” developed that of “foreign land,” since the mountainous countries bordering Sumer were a constant menace to its people. Kur also came to mean “land” in general; Sumer itself is described as kur-gal, “great land.” (Myths of Kur)
This idea of invasive, menacing outsiders reminds me of a few of Charlie Sheen’s movies, such as Platoon, Wall Street, and Red Dawn. Hmm, Lu–Red Dawn? The freedom fighters in the movie called themselves the wolverines. In middle school, I was on the B-Team Wolverines. I drew the poster of the small, powerful animal for our wing.
As I mentioned in the show, Lord sounds like lured, which is an anagram of ruled. It also could be related to Lurid:
2. Presented in vividly shocking or sensational terms, esp. giving explicit details of crimes or sexual matters.
Jupiter also relates to the Rainbow, with its 42 degrees of refraction. The great thinking machine of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (see George Carlin’s “Rules of the Road”) gives 42 as the answer to the universe.
In the recent (March 4th) radio show I was lured into taking some phone calls with some lurid results, which included poems about anal sex and a sexually charged song. I should have expected such antics on a show about Adonis rising..
There were plenty of trolls present to clog up the chat room and monopolize the call-in line. Many of the callers were just machine voices reading text.
Trolling reminds me of trawling, which is fishing by dragging lines or nets behind a boat at a slow speed. It also makes me think of T(r)oll bridges.
So taxpayers get their money stolen from them to build roads, which are often sold to foreign corporations, and then they are still charged fees for their usage. Then there are the cameras that can take pictures of your cars anywhere at anytime and give you a machine-issued ticket for going too fast, blowing a red light, or any other nonsense that no human could verify ever even happened. Where is the JUstice? Well, actually the word used to be IVSTICE, which you can see on many old buildings in America, but we are in Times New Roman and JUpiter took power and has been laying the smack down, setting the rules of the gayme..
Is there any hope for his eventual overthrow? Yes, he will be defeated. Actually, the king has been losing pretty hard recently, or at least so it seems. Once this game is done and won, we will be able to play better, more awesome games.
Consider the nature of “playing” a game. A play is a plan designed and constructed behind the scenes, but performed by char-actors as they hit their marks. “Play” is connect to the Pleiades, the star cluster in Taurus. These are the goddesses, the daughters of Atlas, guardians of Hera’s Golden Apples. Hera is represented by the Peacock (P-Cock), the symbol of NBC.
CHARLIE SHEEN = 107 in simple, just like GOLDEN APPLE and THE MESSIAH, which are only a few examples. The name is 274 in Jewish gematria and these numbers are found on the pillar of mercy in the Tree of Life. 24/7, 365.
Many games are about hitting Tar-gets. Bull’s Eyes..
The anal-loving poet and singer that called into the show told me her name was CHarlotte. Why did I let her go on so long with her “art”? Because I was proving a point. Why did I cut her off? Because I also wanted to prove a point that if I wanted to listen to constant anal references, all I have to do is turn on the TV or go to the movies..
A-Donnie Darko watches portals (rabbit holes) being opened on the screen before his very eyes. He then goes and burns down a pedophile motivational speaker’s home. Incidentally, that pedophile was played by the late Patrick Swayze.
The year of the rabbit has been a quick one..
I would like to finish where I began this POSt – with Adonis Rising. As A/1 and I/9 are somewhat interchangeable, Adonis could also be Idonis. Actors will strike a pose. POSE-I-DON-IS-RISING. Is this the emergent sea of Aquarius?
A few anagrams of ADONIS are SAID NO, DO A SIN, SON AID.
Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow sew
Tea, I drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do…oh oh oh
