The Greek Alphabet, the Elements & the Zodiac


The Greeks also distributed the 24 letters of their alphabet to the members of the human body.

The five vowels, A E I O U, and the consonants J and V are attributed to the seven planets.

The consonants, B C D F G L M N P R S T are attributed to the twelve signs of the Zodiac, with these four, K Q X Z, being attributed to the four traditional Greek elements, and U attributed to the element of Spirit, called the Spirit of the World.

Manilius the Roman astrologer, attributed the signs of the Zodiac to specific parts of the human body; a practice that remains a part of contemporary Astrology. This same Astrologer also attributed two of the 24 letters to each of the 12 signs that correspond to the body, shown below as preserved by Irenaeus.

Bishop Irenaeus of course, was an enemy of the Gnostics and the first acting Inquisitor of the emerging Roman Catholic Church of Emperor Constantine. His systematic destruction of “non-canonic” books led to a great hiding that have led to modern day finds at Qumram and Nag Hammadi. But of course, other writings and wisdom survived the purging and time. The Greek religion would actually continue along its own lines as it had; flowering in occult or underground fashion, ultimately, through the Middle Ages and into Hermetic and Contemporary Magick circles; all the time growing and developing. New Gnosis has come from this with a large body of Hermetic literature culminating in ‘great works’ that include the writings of Eliphas Levi, the research of Sir Isaac Newton and the works of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly. And in modern times, Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Sir Aleister Crowley have continued to reveal the ancient wisdom as they also built upon it.

Returning to the ancient Greeks, their inquiry into the building blocks of the material universe still sits at the core of our physical sciences. For a whole period of time, this materialism betrayed the spirituality of the Great White Brotherhood and its Greek heritage, but that is being corrected by contempory physicists. The Greeks recognized four elements and determined that all things were built in combination of these in a story well told in Occult literature. Of course, the Aethyr or fifth element has had some controversy as post-Einsteinian physicists have been unable to contradict Newton’s research into this. And today, we can argue that Dark Matter and Dark Energy may have a very real connection to this (cf. Scientific Proof of Levi’s Aethyr and Testing the Night of Pan).

The Aethyr as a spiritual quintessence sits at the root of the four elements, which comes to both Greece by way of the Chaldeans (as it did for the Jews) in the name of Adam, the primordial or archetypal ‘first man.’ In Greece the name of the four elements were connected to the four cardinal directions (as it is today), which then could be corresponded to the letters of the name ‘Adam.’ Kieren Barry writes in his Greek Qabalah:

The alchemist Zosimus of Panopolis provides us with an example of acrostic or notarichon when writing about Adam, the first man, explaining how the four elements an dthe four cardinal points correspond with the four letters A—D—A—M:

The first man, who amongst us is called Thoth, has been called ADAM by the Chaldeans, the Parthians, the Medes and the Hebrews, a name taken from the language of angels. Moreover, those people named him thus for the symbolic value of the four letters, that is, the four elements, which correspond to the cardinal directions of the whole of the sphere. In effect, the letter A in his name designates the East [anatole] and the Air [aer]. The letter D stands for the settin sun in the West [dusis], which goes down by reason of its weight. The letter M corresponds to midday [mesemria, South] the fire of the burning which produces the maturation of bodes, the fourth zone and the middle zone…Therefore the carnal Adam is named Thoth as regards his external shape; as for the man who dwells within Adam—the spiritual man—he has both a proper name and a common name. His proper name is still unknown to me today; indeed, only Nicotheus the Hidden knew these things. As for his common name, it is Phos [FWS; light fire].

This common name, Phos (phosphorus—light), is astounding as it really shows us that the ancients understood that the true nature of humanity is light (LVX: cf. Liber Vox Viva Voce vel Video and Dr. Maurice Bucke’s Cosmic Consciousness). This is also hinted at in the biblical tale of the ‘transfiguration’ and has Scientific Confirmation in the modern world.

More than these letters, the words for the five elements in ancient Greek used altogether, only five consonants, R, D, P, G & Q, which are assembled in the following chart:

Kieren Barry also points out that as the Jews have no vowels in their alphabet, the name Adam has only three letters (MDA), so that in the second century, the Rabbi Yohanan when using the Greek method of notarichon (Greek transliteration), found in the letters, the initials for the words after,

Adam, and marah (Hebrew transliteration), which translate as dust, blood, and gall. The fascinating difference here is that if Christianity would have taken more from the Greeks instead of installing the Hebrew into its religious formation, humanity would have been seen as possessing the divine elements and this primordial light. Instead, there is the saying “earth to earth and dust to dust,” which denigrates the human soul.

After the five consonants are removed from the Greek alphabet, and noting that the seven vowels were used for the planetary attributions, we are left with twelve remaining consonants, which can be readily applied to the Zodiac. Indeed, Kieren Barry surmises that the zodiacal attributions to the Hebrew alphabet as taught in the Sepher Yetzirah was “probably first made by the Greeks, although no evidence of this has survived.” He then shows how the letters are correlated in their natural order with the natural order of the zodiacal constellations.

Consulting the wisdom of the Starry Gnosis, the fact that the Tau (Cross) is attributed to Sagittarius is quite significant. In my article, Gnostic Cycles, it is shown that we are in the Manifestation of Sagittarius; though in the Astrological Age of Pisces. But specifically quoting from my article, Sacred Space, we not only see a validation of this lettering sequence, but a lead showing that the ancient Greeks were probably very aware of this…

On the other side of the Earth, just as the last vestiges of the Egyptian empire had become but a memory preserved within Greek culture, the Mayan culture was poised to emerge; for them, the discovery of precession, simultaneously re-discovered by the Greeks. This would prove the North Star as a ‘false god,’ equivocated as the ‘demiurge’ by the emerging Gnostic movement in Mediterranean culture. But it was in Mayan culture that this was expressed with greater clarity as the focal point moved to the dark rift in the Milky Way Galaxy that was calculated to be the galactic center and birth canal of the Earth.

 This center was not only located in the constellation of Sagittarius, who’s symbol in this manifestation is the cross, but was a part of a complex of three crosses. The rift itself forms a cross with the ecliptic, which was known as the ‘Black Road of the Lord’ to the ancient Mayans. A lesser constellation, known as the ‘Thieves Cross’ is near it at the bottom of the rift and Aquila, the Eagle constellation, known to the Mayans as the Hawk, with wings spread in the shape of a cross at the top of the rift. Note that in New Testament symbolism, there are also three crosses with one of them holding a thief. Even, we might say that as a large part of the first aeon of this manifestation was stolen by the Black Lodge and now avenged of course, by the Hawk-Headed Mystical lord, we draw out an interpretation of these symbols that came to be at the start of this Manifestation.

The picture of Jesus’ crucifixion on Golgotha, with his cross accompanied by two surrounding crosses; one holding a thief can be no coincidence. The man on the other cross taunts Jesus in what could be said to be an hawkish manner, which would make perfect sense; considering the nature of parable and symbolism. And so as the Age of Pisces begins, these Greeks having come to despise the North Star (Yahweh) as being the false center or false god; the Demiurgos. They came to this conclusion because

the star was seen to move from its fixed position; losing its status as immovable. Yet still today, it is the principal star for navigators on the seven seas. And though nothing seems to be extant in the literature, the Greeks must have also discovered the black hole that sits at the center of our galaxy; naming it the Pleroma.
