The Horns of the Bull – Gateway to the Elysian Fields


The horns of the Bull point to the Galactic Cross near the Galactic Edge where the June Solstice Sun currently rises signaling the shift of a 26,000 year cycle from 1962 to 2034.

This area of the sky is rich with Star Lore. In this article we are exploring the two stars that mark the horns of the Bull constellation. (This is a work in progress)
.
El Nath (aka Zeta Tarui) marks the northern tip of horn of the Bull (22 Gemini 51)
Al Hecka marks the southern tip of the horn (25 Gemini 03)
 
The horns of the Bull are on the eastern edge of the Milky Way where it crosses the Ecliptic creating a Galactic Cross in the sky. This helps us understand why the Bull has such an important role in many ancient mythologies including the Egyptian concept of how one enters the Elysian Fields as the hero/ine must pass by the bull that guards the route to the West, or the Elysian Fields.
 
One of Pyramid texts reads: “The Bull of the Sky inclines his horn, so that [the deceased] may pass.” It creates an image of traveling down the Celestial Highway of Stars or as some refer to it – the River of Stars. It also calls to mind the yellow brick road – only its a road of stars that defines our soul’s journey in this reality.

 
In classical mythology, the Elysian Fields was a place of blessedness and peace where everything was delightful, with soft green meadows, lovely groves, a delicious life-giving air and sunlight that glowed softly purple.
 
When Planets are between the Horns of the Bull it could be seen as a test of strength and courage to encounter the Bull and then pass through to a better life in the Elysian Fields.
 
Are you willing? And if so are you ready?

More about the Elysian Fields below – from this link https://www.crystalinks.com/elysium.html

In Greek mythology, Elysium was a section of the Underworld (the spelling Elysium is a Latinization of the Greek word Elysion). “Elysium is an obscure and mysterious name that evolved from a designation of a place or person struck by lightning.

Elysium in Literature

The poet Virgil describes Elysium as having eternal spring and shady groves, with its own Sun – lit by its own stars. (Aeneid book vi:541).

In the Renaissance, the heroic population of the Elysian Fields included the bright allure of paradise.

After the Renaissance, popular poets were less influenced by Greek and Latin literature. As the vikings infiltrated their stories images of Valhalla (a cheerier after death place) entered the popular European imagination with some poets further evolving the Elysium perspective. Sometimes imagined as a place where heroes getting to continue their lives as they had before only happier perhaps filled with feasting, sport, song such as Friedrich Schiller’s Ode to Joy suggesting the “daughter of Elysium” was a thing.

Dante described the Elysian Fields as the very upper level of hell, a place of peace that the unbaptized and the non-believers who lived virtuous lives go. It is a place of happiness, but it is closed off from God and thus remains as hell.

Elysium in Neopaganism

Many Neopagans today, particularly Hellenic neopagans in the United States, have what most would consider a new-age view of Elysium as a multi-layered paradise, or Heaven.

Some believe that the outer realms of Elysium are composed of great and beautiful fields, with green glowing blades of grass and bubbling springs of glowing water and wine made from the nectar of Ambrosia.

Beyond the Elysium Fields, reserved only for the most righteous and virtuous, is the Golden City where spirits exist in a state of constant euphoria. Much of what many modern neopagans believe today regarding Elysium seems to be borrowed from popular Christian imagery of Heaven.

Summary
The Elysium Fields have had many meanings. It seems it is up to each individual to feel into what the Elysium Fields means to them. When planets are passing through this area of the sky it is a good time to dream into this meaning, ideally by having a visual connection to these stars when the Sun is not occupying this area of the sky.
