We are coming to the darkest time of year and I am not talking about the lack of SUNSHINE. Every year I try to bring to your attention the unholy days and their nature so that you can prepare yourself. This time of year everyone should be very cautious and alert because there are people of multiple cults and religions seeking out victims for torture, abuse and sacrifice. EVERYONE should be praying for protection for themselves and their families, and for the greater population as well. There are many innocents who have no one to pray for them. Lift them up in your prayer time. Ask the Lord to deliver them out the hands of evil people and demonic spirits.
Pray also that all the plots and plans of evil beings, human or otherwise, will not be successful. That God will protect us from deception and destruction.
Review this entire post. Don’t miss any of it. Pray and ask GOD to reveal TRUTH to you and to prepare you to battle against the forces of darkness.
September 21 – Mabon – allegedly a time of Illuminati Human Sacrifice
SEPTEMBER 21ST-22ND: AUTUMN EQUINOX
The autumn equinox marks the beginning of the thinning of the veil separating the spirit world from the physical (with the thinnest night on Samhain, Oct 31), which allows demonic spirits to pass through. It is the day when the hours of daylight and darkness are equal, and in the pagan world this holiday is called Mabon. It’s also referred to as the Harvest Festival, or the Feast of the Ingathering. It’s the pagan version of Thanksgiving and sharing of food. The worship of gods and goddesses occurs in order to keep their blessings during the cold winter months ahead. It’s also the midpoint between Lughnasa and Samhain. A human sacrifice is desired for the gods and goddesses in order to protect the people from the winter.
Harvest festivals are held annually on this seemingly innocuous date
FULL MOON FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
NOT A HARVEST MOON THIS YEAR
Expecting the Harvest Moon this month? You’re not alone!
The full Moon that happens nearest to the autumnal equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead of a traditional name—a rule that often places the Harvest Moon in the month of September. However, when September’s full Moon occurs early in the month, the full Moon of early October lands nearest to the autumnal equinox and therefore takes on the Harvest Moon title instead.
That’s the case in 2020, when October will experience two full Moons: one on October 1 (the Harvest Moon) and the other on the 31st (the Hunter’s Moon and a Blue Moon, too)! Learn more about the Harvest Moon.
September’s Full Moon—in this entertaining video.

I always post the astrological events because those who practice evil study the stars intently and use them to determine their actions. God said that he gave us the stars for signs, so being aware of what is going on the heavens is a good idea. But be careful, do not get caught up in the trap that is Astrology. Divination is not what God intended. He forbids divination and calls it an abomination. We are to look to GOD and trust HIM. The stars are not bits of rock floating in space. The are entities. They are very powerful and deceptive.
12 Interesting Astronomy Events in the September Night Sky
This month you’ll be treated to a series of planet-gazing opportunities, a few other celestial objects, and of course the September equinox. Whether you’re new to stargazing or just seeking some of the other interesting astronomical sights (Neptune! 47 Tucanae!), there’s plenty to see in September.
The new moon is always a good reason to go at and stargaze. This month, it’s also another good opportunity to pull out your telescope. Comet 88P/Howell will appear at its brightest on the night of September 17th. On this night, the comet will be just 1.37 AU from earth – and an almost equidistant 1.36 AU from the sun. 88P/Howell will continue to approach the sun until September 26th when it reaches perihelion. From there, it will begin making its way away and dimming.
88P/Howell is best viewed from closer to the equator. Also note that unlike Comet NEOWISE that wowed us without needing a telescope, you will need some form of aid to try and spot 88P/Howell.
September 22: Mercury Reaches its Highest in the Evening
Like Venus earlier in the month, Mercury never appears high in the sky; those mornings and nights when it does are worth marking on your calendar to try and spot the small planet.
On September 22nd, Mercury will reach its highest point in the evening sky, just 10° above the horizon after the sun has set. You’ll need a clear view of the western horizon. This means no mountains, trees, or other obstructions, if you’re trying to spot Mercury as the night comes on.
On September 22nd this year, the seasons officially changed. The September Equinox – called the “autumnal equinox” in the northern hemisphere and the “vernal equinox” in the southern hemisphere – signals the point where earth experiences roughly equal lengths of day and night.
While there is no night sky event to view for the equinox, it’s a cool time to consider our planet’s place in the solar system and how we orbit around the sun.
September 25: Close Approach of the Moon, Jupiter & Saturn
Over the course of September 25th (the pre-dawn hours and the evening hours), you’ll have the chance to spot our solar system’s two gas giants in close proximity to a third-quarter moon. First Jupiter and then Saturn will make a close approach with the Moon; within 1°35′ and 2°18′ of each other, respectively.
Jupiter and Saturn will be quite obvious to spot; but Pluto is in the same area if you’ve got your telescope out. The moon will be 8 days old, so you will have some light pollution from it. (A good telescope will make it possible to spot this large dwarf planet.)
September 27: Globular Cluster 47 Tuc is Well-Placed
While you may not have heard of globular cluster 47 Tucanae, you may well have seen it. 47 Tuc – its nickname – is the second brightest globular cluster in the night sky, and visible across most of the planet – especially at lower latitudes and south of the equator.
On the night of September 27th, 47 Tuc will be well-placed for viewing, high in the sky depending on your location. 47 Tuc is home to some ten thousands stars in varying life stages, and appears at magnitude 4.1. This makes it easily visible to the unaided eye for intrepid stargazers looking for deep space objects.

Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery
This Week Daily,
Journey to three cities in the Middle East – Palmyra and Aleppo in Syria and Mosul in Iraq – in this virtual exhibition organized by the Arab World Institute, Paris, and created in collaboration with UNESCO. These cities, among the oldest uninterrupted human settlements in the world, have recently been devastated by war. To preserve these sites for future generations, Age Old Cities offers large-scale projections and digital reconstructions (more than eleven feet tall) of iconic monuments and ancient structures(SO, holograms of the Ancient Temples and Sacrificial Sites!) rising from ruins to their former glory. The dynamic images in this immersive experience underscore the critical importance of cultural heritage and architectural preservation as well as the vital role digital reconstruction can play in safeguarding the past. (Rather resurrecting PAGANISM)
Exhibition created by the Arab World Institute, Paris, in collaboration with Iconem and in partnership with UNESCO and Ubisoft, with support from the University of Lausanne and L’Oeuvre d’Orient
Now, by visiting the display in our nation’s capital, through the witchcraft of technology you can virtually experience visiting the actual site of the Temple of BAAL. Not just see a replica of the Gate… but walk through the Gates and into the Temple itself. You can virtually stand on the desecrated ground and experience the spirit that dwells there.

FOOD INNOVATION NETWORK
Coming at the end of 6 months of quiet business, SIAL Paris will constitute, perhaps more significantly than ever, the major global event for the industryfrom 18 to 22 October 2020: as a catalyst for businessand an acknowledged melting pot for worldwide innovation, SIAL Paris will kick off the recovery of food exports all over the world.”Own the Change“, (Gee, I wonder just what kind of global change they have in mind for our food supply…maybe cannibalism, or eating insects, or recycled poop, or GMO vegetables, or artificial meat? ) the central theme of the next edition of SIAL Paris announced several months ago, resonates all the more strongly. Will life go back to “how it used to be”? That’s entirely up to us! This period of forced retreat will undoubtedly leave a lasting mark on us all. It is up to everyone to make their contribution to building tomorrow’s world. In this respect, “Own the Change“, the central theme of the next edition of SIAL Paris announced several months ago, resonates all the more strongly. It will be an opportunity for the entire industry to share and develop what tomorrow’s world will be like: What food for tomorrow?How can we feed the planet in a healthy and sustainable way? What balances should there be between globalization and regionalism? The watchword here will undoubtedly be agility: working together, we will succeed in organising this major global food industry meeting. Your continued support is extremely valuable and vital to us.
Sial – In geology, the term ‘sial’refers to the composition of the upper layer of the Earth‘s crust, namely rocks rich in silicates and aluminium minerals. It is sometimes equated with the continental crust because it is absent in the wide oceanic basins, but “sial” is a geochemical term rather than a plate tectonic term. As these elements are less dense than the majority of the earth’s elements, they tend to be concentrated in the upper layer of the crust.
The uppermost layer of the crust is called sial consisting of silicate and Aluminium (Si =silicate, Al= aluminium). On an average, the thickness of sial is till 25 km from the surface. The continents are composed mainly of lighter Rock materialformed from silicon and Aluminium, so the sial Is thick over the continents and very thin or absent on the ocean floor especially the Pacific Ocean. Average density of sial is 2.7 gm/cc.
Geologists often refer to the rocks in this layer as felsic, because they contain high levels of feldspar, an aluminium silicate mineral series. However, the sial “actually has quite a diversity of rock types, including large amounts of basaltic rocks.”
The name ‘sial’ was taken from the first two letters of silicaand of alumina. The sial is often contrasted to the ‘sima,’ the next lower layer in the Earth, which is often exposed in the ocean basins; and the nickel-iron alloycore, sometimes referred to as the “Nife”. These geochemical divisions of the Earth’s interior (with these names) were first proposed by Eduard Suess in the 19th century. This model of the outer layers of the earth has been confirmed by petrographic, gravimetric, and seismic evidence.

TURNS out that the religious festivals around the world are all based on MAGIC/Witches Wheel of the Year, celebrating the Solstices. This should come as no surprise, because at one time the entire world was Pagan, except for GOD’s chosen.
From a rubber duck race in Germany to a month-long celebration of the supernatural in Salem, Musement takes a look at ten events happening around the world in October.
Autumn is in full effect, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Here’s a look at ten events happening around the world this October.
1. October 1 – 31: The Festival of the Dead, Salem, Massachusetts
Salem, known for its infamous 17th-century witch hunt, is still cloaked with an aura of magic and mystique, so it’s quite fitting that October marks the month-long Festival of the Dead celebrating the supernatural, concluding on Halloween.
Today, the witches of Salem, and those who gather there from afar, honour this time of year with the Festival of The Dead, an annual event that, according to its website, “explores death’s macabre customs, heretical histories and strange rituals.” One event of particular interest is the Dumb Supper. The name comes from the fact that the entire 4-course meal is consumed in complete and solemn silence. This silence, again from the Festival of the Dead website, “not only allows people to grieve their dead but creates a portal for the spirits to come through.” Guests are encouraged to bring photos and mementos to summon the souls of their loved ones on the other side. The Dumb Supper is an ancient tradition. Source
2. October 5: Rubber Duck Race, Germany
Yes, you read that correctly. Each year, around 7,000 rubber duckies “gather” in Tübingen to “race” in the Neckar River. Want to join in on the fun? It’s open to anyone who has a rubber duck. Otherwise, you can rent one (or as many as you want) for 3€ (each) — just make sure to write your name on the duck. The race takes about 45 minutes and the winner receives a €1,000 voucher while the runners-up are also shown some prize love.
3. October 5: Republic Day, Portugal
This annual holiday commemorates the end of the monarchy and the establishment of a republic in 1910. The government holds a few ceremonial events, but overall, the national holiday offers the Portuguese a 24-hour reprieve from the daily grind.
4. October 7 – 9: Nagasaki Kunchi Festival, Japan
This 400-year-old festival celebrates the multicultural history of Nagasaki, incorporating Dutch influences as a nod to the city’s time as a Dutch colony.
Nagasaki Kunchi Festival – OCT 7 ~ OCT 9; 7am -8pm
This vibrant celebration of Nagasaki’s multicultural history is the event in the area’s autumn calendar. Dating back nearly 400 years, and incorporates different aspects of Chinese and Dutch cultures, which have played a role in the city’s history. The festival’s name is believed to come from ku-nichi (“9th day”), the ninth day of the ninth monthof the lunar calendar. The Kunchi Festival is three days long and draws in pretty much the whole city. Over 59 Nagasaki neighborhood dance groups are involved, with five or six performing dashimono dances each year. Floats—jaodori dragons, shishi lions, takara-bune, and Chinese and Dutch ships—are paraded around the city by the odoricho groups. The Nagasaki Kunchi Festival has been made an Intangible Folk Cultural Property.
Takayama Festival From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Takayama Festivals (高山祭, Takayama Matsuri) in Takayama in Japan started in the 16th to 17th century. The festivals are believed to have been started during the rule of the Kanamori family. Correspondence dated 1692 place the origin to 40 years prior to that date. One of the festivals is held on 14 and 15 April and the other on 9 and 10 October.
The Spring Takayama Festival is centered on the Hie Shrine. The shrine is also known as the Sanno Shrine, and the spring festival is also known as the Sanno Festival. The Sanno Festival is held to pray for a good harvest and the Autumn Festival is for giving thanks.
The Autumn festival is centered on the Sakurayama Hachiman Shrine and is referred to as the Hachiman Festival. It is held after the crops are harvested. The fall festival is one of the three largest festivals in Japan. The other two are Kyoto‘s Gion Matsuri and the Chichibu Matsuri.
Here is a great holiday… Let’s terrify and torment little children. Oh…ya, that is just like Halloween! And the Day of the Dead, and KRUMPUS!
Japan’s Ancient Demonic Pagan Festival “Paantu”
Trolling the internet (via Dangerous Minds) I came across this interesting Demonic festival that takes place every year in Miyakojima, Okinawa called the Paantu Festival. When I see pictures of the males in full costume it reminds me that pagan traditions can be found everywhere from Africa to Europe
5. October 13: The Círio de Nazaré, Brazil
Two million people participate in this festival in Belém (Bel em) dedicated to Our Lady of Nazareth. Fireworks, processions, flowers and good time mark the occasion.
6. October 22: The World Series, America
While the teams still have yet to be decided as do the cities, one thing is for sure: Major League Baseball’s leading American and National League teams will face off for the 115th edition of the World Series. The first pitch will be tossed on October 22 to mark the start of at least four (seven max) games.
7. October 26 – 27: Polar Circle Marathon, Greenland
Arguably the coolest marathon of them all, pun intended. Taking place in Kangerlussuaq at 66° northern latitude, the intense marathon in one of the most remote corners of the world has taken place annually since 2001.
8. October 27: Diwali, the Festival of Lights, India
This Hindu Festival, one of the most popular holidays in India, is celebrated by a few faiths. Indians place rows of clay lamps outside their homes in honor of the triumph of inner light over darkness/good over evil — quite heartwarming if we do say so ourselves. The five-day festival marks the start of the Hindu new year. In addition, fireworks spectacles about and homes contain even more incredible decor.
Diwali – Mumbai, India
30 October – 3 November
As the Hindu god Rama returns home from battle and exile, believers everywhere light oil lamps to show him the way. This “festival of light” is the most significant event on the Indian calendar – akin to Christmas in the West – marking the end of the harvest season with feasts, gifts and prayers. Homes are festooned with jasmine flowers and candles, while vibrantly coloured sands shaped like lotus flowers form welcome mats for visitors. Women wear their best and most colourful saris, and fireworks brighten the darkness of night. Though originally an ancient religious festival, Diwali is celebrated by even the non-observant who mark the occasion as a time of post-harvest abundance, renewal and inner enlightenment – and foreign visitors are heartily invited to do the same.
9. October 27: Masskara, Philippines
And another heartwarming festival! Masskara (MASK) is characterized by smiley masks and colorful clothing and adornments as a way to banish the grief that swept the city of Bacolod, in the 1980s. Though the grief has passed, the holiday has lived on the city has even been nicknamed the “City of Smiles”.
10. October 31: Halloween
All Hallow’s Eve! In many places, kids put on costumes and go trick-or-treating. Yet there are traditions all around the world to celebrate the holiday derived from an ancient Celtic feast, many of which tie into the subsequent religious holidays that fall on November 1 (All Saint’s Day) and November 2 (All Soul’s Day).
October 31 – Samhain, also known as Halloween, or All Hallows Eve. This date is the Illuminati’s highest day of human sacrifice
|Oct 28-30||Satanist High
(Holy Day related to Halloween)
|blood||human sacrifice each day||any age (male or female)|
|Oct 30-31||All Hallows Eve and Halloween Night||blood and sexual||sexual climax, association with the demons, animal and/or human sacrifice||any age (male or female and/or animal)|
The human sacrifice required during many of these occult dates needs to contain the following elements, each one of which is exaggerated to the highest possible degree:
1. Trauma, stress, and mental anguish, sheer terror
2. The final act in the drama should be destruction by a fire; preferably a conflagration.
3. People must die as human sacrifices, especially children, since Lord Satan looks upon a younger human sacrifice as his most desirable Source
OCTOBER 31ST-NOVEMBER 1ST: HALLOWEEN
Samhain, (aka All Hallows Eve, aka Halloween), is a three day fire festival in which sacrifices were given to fires for the sun god. Samhain is a festival for the dead, as Beltaine is a festival for the living. There are a slew of traditions that occur during this festival of Samhain from Oct 29-31st, with the culmination on Halloween night. Samhain is the Celtic lord of the dead and is considered a stag god. A stag god in the occult is always a reference to the ancient male god Nimrod. He was depicted with one horn, or multiple horns appearing as antlers like Moloch:
To understand more about this holiday, we have to revisit the information about the occult and pagans. I already explained the basis for the occult attachments to the holiday at the preface to the post, but there needs to be more explanation into the Druid priesthood. The Celtic people came to the British Isles and had a priesthood known as the Druids during the Iron Ages. Wikipedia claims that there is little known about the Druids, while other theorists and people who have spent time with the Illuminati and/or occult claim to know the entire story. What is claimed is that the Druids held all authority in the tribes, and told the people when/who they should marry, when to go to war, etc. What is known and taken as fact is that they practiced human sacrifice (hence why we see so much sacrifice during these holidays).
The famous Stonehenge location is where the Druids would go to worship their stag god on the eight occult holidays per year (there are many Stonehenges across the globe; this one in particular is the well-known one). They would perform sacrifices at sites such as these, through barbaric rituals such as the ‘fountain of blood’ in which they’d hang a person with a rope tied tight around their neck and slit the throat to create a huge wave of blood. Druids would gather at Stonehenge on Samhain with gourds and pumpkins (originally called ‘Corpse Candles’ or now commonly known as Jack-O-Lanterns) and fill them with human fat, taken from previous sacrifices given to gods. They’d also bring cauldrons and light them on fire, warming them up for the sacrificial ceremony to be described later (spoiler alert: it’s for the tradition of bobbing for apples). The Druids would bang on the doors of local nobilities and yell “Trick or Treat” to see if the lord of the manor came to provide a ‘treat.’ A treat would be one of the servants or even household members given up for sacrificing that night. The reward for the ‘treat’ would be one of the pumpkins filled with human fat and they would light it so that everyone within the house was protected from the demons summoned on Samhain. If you didn’t give up an offering you’d get a six pointed star inside of a circle (a hexagram) painted with blood on the front door. This would be an attractive force for the demons and the people inside would be plagued with the demonic curse during Samhain.
Another theory is that the people would leave treats of food and candies outside for the demonic spirits as they traveled the material world on October 31st. The treats would keep the evil spirits at bay from plaguing the household.
The human sacrifices would be gathered up, and then lined up as the Druids would throw apples into the cauldrons and give the humans a chance to pull the apples out with their teeth (the cauldrons were boiling hot) for a chance for freedom. Some went for the chance and could be burned with permanent damage to their eyes, ears, throat, etc.; while others did not. Those who did not get the apple on the first try were beheaded immediately, while those who avoided the challenge would be sacrificed in a fiery death. They were taken to a “wicker man” with various wicker cages inside of it and placed inside of it (just like the film with Nicolas Cage). The wicker man would be lit on fire as a sacrifice to the gods, drawing us back yet again to the Nimrod and Semiramis connection. It should also be noted that the annual Burning Man celebration is a reenactment of this ceremony.
Another tradition is to dress up in costumes, called ‘guising.’ This came about because the veil between spiritual world and physical world is the thinnest on Samhain and the departed souls can come visit their loved ones. The lit flames in the sacrificial areas are a beacon for the spirits to find and enter into our world (that’s the point of the wicker man; to provide sacrifices and a guiding light for the spirit world). They believed this couldn’t filter out the evil spirits, so the Druid priests would wear scary clothing to keep the evil spirits away.
Another origin for trick or treating would come from the church belief that on All Souls Day members should pray for souls that are stuck in purgatory, a transitional state. If the soul could get enough prayers it would be bumped up into Heaven. The Halloween time frame is when children would go door to door collecting soul cakes and prayers for souls to get out of purgatory.
People used to employ the Devil to help them predict their future. This was done through several seemingly odd activities, including examination of eaten apples to determine if the shape of the remains were similar to a letter. That letter would in-turn be symbolic of the name of the mate the person could have. Other divinations included telling how many children one would have, where one would live, etc. Attempts to read the future are occult in nature, and Halloween is no exception. In fact, it’s the most popular time of year for divination. The bats, cats, owls and other animals known for Halloween were believed to be incarnations of the Devil as part of the divination process. The witch could use these animals (Satan) to help her predict the future.
Halloween is the night the stag god (male) takes power over the world, and remains in power through the lead up to the female spring goddess taking over again (Semiramis) on March 21st. On May 1st she is in full glory as the Earth Mother at Beltaine, while she leaves as an old lady at Halloween to start the cycle over again. SOURCE
Celtic sacrifices confirmed at famed ancient site
- Analysis confirms ritual murder helps explain bone clusters at the ruins of Gordion in Turkey
- The skull and skeleton displays seem in keeping with ancient Celtic practices
- The Celts invented a holiday that preceded today’s Halloween skeleton displays
Halloween brings trick-or-treaters, candy and rather macabre displays of skeletons and graves suddenly dotting suburban lawns.
All in fun, but for the ancient Celts who cooked up the autumn festival of Samhain, a predecessor to today’s Halloween, a new study confirms such displays were serious business.
“The ancient Celts were most definitely head-hunters,” prone to displaying these trophies, says anthropologist Mary Voigt, who has long headed the Penn Museum’s excavations at the storied site of Gordion in modern-day Turkey. “And they were definitely Celts at Gordion.”
What were those Celts (pronounced with a hard “K” sound) doing in Turkey? Well, in a forthcoming study in the Journal of Osteoarchaeology by archaeologist Page Selinsky of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, it seems they were definitely continuing some startling ritual murder practices. They decorated sacrifice sites with ghoulish entanglements of human bones, perhaps as a warning to foes and the folks they ruled.
Gordion is the place where Alexander the Great famously severed the intractable “Gordian Knot,” a knot so complex that legend has it that whoever undid the knot would rule all of Asia, on his conquests around 334 B.C. The death of Alexander also brought Celts, originally mercenaries and later conquerors, to Gordion, a citadel mound in central Turkey that was once ruled by the King Midas of the golden touch myth.
“Understanding what they intended is the million-dollar question in Celtic ritual practices,” Selinsky says. “These are big questions of life and death and what they believed. We may be seeing several different types of rituals.”
In one case, a middle-aged woman’s skeleton, her skull dented by three hammer blows, lay atop a younger woman’s skeleton pinned under two large grinding stones. The bones of two children lay placed among them. In another, a teenager’s clearly-decapitated head was arranged amid dog bones. Perhaps most bizarre, three skeletons mingled in doubled-over positions include the skull of a woman who appears to have been decapitated. Several men appear to have been decapitated among the bone clusters, their heads displayed singly in the manner of war trophies.
The Celts were big fans of skulls, Voigt notes in a chapter of the bookSacred Killing: The Archaeology of Sacrifice in the Ancient Near East, edited by Anne Porter and Glenn Schwartz. The Romans noted they collected heads of enemies to hang from their horses, and they sacrificed criminals and captured enemies, using their death throes to foretell the future. “The heads of those enemies that were held in high esteem they would embalm in cedar oil and display them to their guests, and they would not think of having them ransomed even for an equal weight of gold,” wrote the ancient Greek historian, Strabo.
Voigt suggests that the bodies displayed by the Galatians, which would have been clearly visible to anyone living in the town below their citadel, were meant as a warning either to foes or the subject population of the town. Perhaps some were victims of ritual murder in attempts to tell the future when the Romans invaded their realm. While Selinsky is more cautious about attaching meaning to the bone displays than Voigt, her study does confirm violent death as the end for many of the skeletons, a suggestion that first made news a decade ago. “Here we see further investigation confirming a hypothesis, which is a good thing in science,” Selinsky says.
As for the Halloween connection, some researchers see links, “but all we can say really is that there was a Celtic festival called Samhain in the fall when animals were slaughtered for the winter, that in some ways preceded the holiday,” Voigt says. Any certainty about the deeper connection to today’s trick-or-treating skeletons is as uncertain as the meaning of the curious bones left on a hillside below the ruins of Gordion.
