The Bee of 2012

By Brian Stevens

Apis is Latin for bee and considered a mystery word because it is said to be
unrelated to any other words.  There is a Greek word with the same spelling for
the sacred bull of Osiris. I want to attempt to explain the connection by
drawing attention to the stars.

First of all, the Apis Bull of Osiris was an earthly representation of the
constellation Taurus, because Taurus contains the Pleiades constellation, which
is Osiris as the power of resurrection in forms like the eye of bread given to
him by Horus, as well as the antipodal position that the Pleiades demark as the
top of the delineation of his Djed.  Antipodal, in this astronomical context,
means a position perfectly opposite another position on the ecliptic, or Sun’s
path, which is exactly 180 degrees removed. This antipodal position of the
Pleiades is easily conceptualized as a honey bee, because this antipodal
position is atop the head of Scorpio, which is easily conceptualized as a
flowers head with a long stem seen as the tail of Scorpio.  Antipodal mean the
opposite foot, thus something that works together in step with something else,
like a counterpart relationship, as in hand and glove. The head of Scorpio as a
flower is complimented with the Pleiades as the merged image of a bee alighting
onto a flower, a perfect composite of an iconic relationship.  This antipodal
relationship means that when the head of Scorpio is rising on the eastern
horizon the Pleiades are setting on the western horizon.  One on each
 astronomically important point of setting and rising used in the measurement of
time and this specific position of the Pleiades, that is our bee here in
discussion, is the foundation of time and considered the point of supporting all
the heavens, a very significant position.

So, we have found a connection between the word apis for a bee and Apis for the
bull associated with Osiris, But let’s go further in this pursuit.

The Pleiades are seen as a sting from a bee to the constellation Taurus and
therefore Taurus is looking at the Pleiades, or bee, with the eye of Aldebaran,
the bull’s eye and thus where the term bull’s-eye comes from, denoting the
center mark of heaven as the Pleiades, which by the way are the eye of heaven
and not to be confused with Aldebaran, the bull’s eye, which gets its name from
the follower of the Pleiades. So, we are drawing more connections to the bull in
the heavens and the bee for a connection between two apis words for bull and

Now, let me show you that the bull and the bee can also be seen not just as the
Pleiades as a bee within the constellation of Taurus the bull, but let me
completely combine the two separate images of bee and bull by seeing Taurus as a
giant bee constellation.  Just please note that the Pleiades are by themselves
the concept of a bee and in this perspective of Taurus seen as a bee
constellation with the Pleiades serving as the stinger, it is not the sole
concept of the Pleiades being associated with a bee.

I have had many opportunities to discuss what I talk about in my videos with
Astronomers while out viewing the night sky together.  They are very much
familiar with conventional constructs of constellations, but seldom will they
let themselves even slightly see anything else in the stars that is not spelled
out on a chart or that they have read about.  I have found it quite amazing
though that when I point out that Taurus looks just like a bee they see it
perfectly at a glance and look at me like, yes, no doubt that is a bee.

The constellation traditionally known as Taurus to be seen as a giant bee is as
follows. The horns are seen as antennae connecting to the lower V- shape part of
the horns as the bee face, the surrounding faint stars look like wings and the
Pleiades make a pointy shaped stinger.  If you start by looking at the face and
antennae it should appear to you.

Don’t let me detract from the point, or stinger of this giant bee as being by
itself our main focus here as the representation of a bee.   So, again I say the
Pleiades represent a bee that matches perfectly antipodal onto the flower head
of the constellation we all recognize as Scorpio. You can think of it as the bee
stinging Taurus or think of it as the bee inside of Taurus, like the concept of
the Bougonia, which is the very old practice of burying a bull with its head
above ground as the entrance for bees into a beehive made from the bulls body.
 The word Bougonia come from the Greek, meaning ox born, i.e. bees born from the
bull and this bull represents the constellation Taurus with the Pleiades inside
as bees.

Let’s look at this antipodal relationship between the Pleiades as a bee and the
constellation Scorpio as a flower. Everyone has heard of 2012, but nobody talks
about the antipodal relationship between the aforementioned flower and bee as
the key to understanding 2012. As everyone know 2012 is an alignment of the
Winter Solstice Sun with the center of the Milky Way, but none talk about the
concept of the Sun aligning with the antipodal positions of the Pleiades and
atop the head of Scorpio, which is the focus of 2012. There is a city in Mexico
that is the representation of the final alignment of the Sun in 2012 called
Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza is a city made by alignments of its edifices to the
astronomical alignments of 2012. A city of the year 2012! Everyone has heard of
its pyramid Kukulkan with its Equinox shadow phenomenon, but the Pyramid is also
perfectly aligned for six days of the year not just the Equinoxes, because it
also has alignments for the two Solstice alignments and the two antipodal
positions of the Pleiades as a bee atop the head of Scorpio as a flower.

The pyramid of Kukulkan has four sides and it is oriented for the two sides of
the South and East to light up with the sunrise of the Winter Solstice. On the
Summer Solstice the two sides of the North and West light up with the sunset.
On the day the Sun aligns with the Pleiades the West side lights up at sunset
and with the alignment of the Sun atop the head of Scorpio the East side of
Kukulkan lights up. So, this means that on the day the Sun is atop the head of
Scorpio the East side is light with the sunrise and the three other sides are
shadow, the obverse is the case with the day for the Pleiades and Sun alignment
having the West side light up at sunset with the other three sides shadow. Of
course, two sides light up on the Winter and Summer Solstices and leaves two
sides shadowed in their respective turns. So, the pyramid of Kukulkan is aligned
for the specific days of the antipodal positions of the Sun with the Pleiades
and atop the head of Scorpio, which are the points of the bee to that of being
atop the flower.

Now let’s look at the ball court of this city of 2012. Built onto the ball
court is the temple of the Jaguar, the ball court being the representation of
the 2012 alignment played out in a ball game of the ancient Maya. On the day the
Pleiades align with the Sun the sunset shines light into the West doorway of the
temple and on the day the Sun aligns atop the head of Scorpio the sunrise shines
into the East doorway of the Jaguar Temple. This day of the sunrise through the
East doorway shine right over the throne of 2012 that sets in the doorway, which
means this position of the Sun atop the head of Scorpio is the high place of
exaltation and this particular day is the day begun with the Midnight
culmination of the Pleiades. Again, the Pleiades are the bee and this shows the
bee as the alignment of the Sun atop the flower head of Scorpio, i.e. the
exalted position of 2012 is perfectly represented as a bee alighting onto a
flower. This Midnight culmination of the Pleiades was the continued mark for the
tracking of time to the year 2012. That’s right, this position was how the Maya
followed time to the year 2012.

So, there you see the Pleiades Midnight culmination directly overhead mark the
position of the Sun atop the head of Scorpio. But, exactly six months removed is
the position of the Pleiades directly overhead at Noon with the Sun, which is
the Day the West side of Kukulkan lights up with the sunset as well as shining
into the West doorway of the Jaguar Temple. This particular day is the day of
the Diving or Descending god that the Maya saw as a bee. Because of the exact
latitude of the 2012 city of Chichen Itza there is always a Noon Sun on this day
that is directly overhead and creates the phenomenon of no shadows. Only in the
time when the Winter Solstice Sun aligns to the center of the Milky Way are the
Pleiades, through the process of precession, in alignment with this day as an
alignment of Pleiades and Sun; Keep in mind as well, that this is exactly six
months removed from the Midnight culmination of the Pleiades directly overhead
that the Maya used to track time to the year 2012. This day of no shadow is
determined by distance from the Equator. It is best understood as on the Equinox
the sun is overhead at the Equator and by subtle variation from the Equator
different days manifest the Sun directly overhead at Noon. The Maya used this
knowledge to pinpoint the year 2012 with the geographical position of Chichen
Itza as the city of 2012. The city has many pillars to mark this day, because on
this day the Sun at Noon leaves no shadow from the pillar. There are hundreds of
these pillars at the Temple of the Warrior and the Temple is marked with a
representation of a god standing on his hands, which represents the Diving or
Descending God. Like the European representation of the Pleiades as Atlas
supporting the heavens, the Maya saw the Pleiades as the Bacabs supporting the
heavens. The Bacabs were depicted as standing on their hands, i.e. as the
Pleiades as in alignment with the Sun’s no shadow phenomenon of the diving god,
because at this time the alignment of the Sun would be at the place of rebirth
in the center of the Milky Way and the sky would be raised anew by the Bacabs as
sky bearers. Other Mayan cities had the diving god represented as a bee, such as
Tulum and Coba.  Both of these cities where known for bees and Tulum which has
these pillars for the no shadow diving god, depicts what some scholars see as
Quetzalcoatl’s image of birth as a bee for his return.  Even the ball court of
Izapa has what looks like the diving god’s image as the throne of 2012 and
interpreted to be a birthing depiction of the Sun god and it should be kept in
mind that the pillars, diving god, the bee and the Pleiades are all interwoven
with the rebirth of the Sun in 2012.

From the very earliest times, Quetzalcoatl was depicted with what scholars say
is a serpent head in an anthodium.  An anthodium is a fancy word for a flower
head. If you have watched my feathered serpent video and followed the Rice
University web address I cited from their department of Maya Studies, you know
that Scorpio is the serpent form of Quetzalcoatl. In this video I explain how
the Pleiades are the Quetzal bird pluming the serpent and point out that the
Pleiades are like a bee alighting onto a flower head in this representation of
the serpent head in the middle of the flower representations of Quetzalcoatl.
Remember that the serpent, or Scorpio, is made with the head of Scorpio as the
flower head and the long tail is the flower’s stem, so you see the serpent and
the flower are the same and thus the serpent god of Mexico is depicted as a
snake with a flower around his head.  I should note that Quetzalcoatl is also
seen as the Jaguar throne of the Pleiades and again the Pleiades are the bee
alighting unto the flower head of Scorpio as the time piece of 2012.

As I said, the Maya had the Bacabs as sky bearers and they were seen as the
Pleiades. They were represented as four brothers and each with their respective
cardinal direction.  As I said, the Bacabs were seen as bees and this parallels
the Egyptian concept of the four Sons of Horus atop the lotus head of Scorpio as
the four cardinal directions. Each of the four Sons of Horus was said to hold up
the heavens with his scepter that represented the world pillar that was lifted
up with the rebirth of the Sun from the center of the Milky Way, just like the
Bacabs lifted up the Milky Way with the rebirth of the Sun.   I explain this
Egyptian raising of the pillar in my Opening of the Mouth Ceremony video.

Atlas is a representation of the Pleiades as the bearer of the heavens as well.
This all has to do with the Pleiades as the capstone of all time. I explain this
in my Eagle of the great seal video as well as others like the Occult Readings
1-18 videos. In the Occult Reading 1 – 18 videos I get into the concept of the
Omphalos Stone of Delphi as the Pleiades and I just want to note here that bees
were associated with this stone because the Pleiades were seen as bees called
Melissai.  It should also be noted that the Pleiades are the throne or high
position of both the Sun and Moon because the Pleiades are along their path
called the ecliptic. This is also the place of exaltation for planets that
travel along the ecliptic like in the case of Saturn in Taurus or the Pleiades
with Venus. The point being that the Pleiades can be seen as attendants, priests
and priestesses of the heavenly bodies just like Artemis, the Moon godess was
said to have a retinue of bees.  The Omphalos Stone is thought by some Scholars
to be covered with bees and again the oracle set atop the serpent tripod like a
bee on a flower.

The Pleiades can be thought of as a beehive in the tree of life, because the
tree of life is made by the stars of Libra as the upper foliage and the head of
Scorpio as the trunk and bottom boughs of the Tree of Life, with the Pleiades
antipodal position seen as a beehive in the tree on the golden bough where the
Sun sets on the day of the Pleiades Midnight culmination. When the Golden Bough
of the Tree of Life breaks the eastern horizon the antipodal position of the
Pleiades is setting below the western horizon and this can be thought of as the
Pleades, as a bee disappearing into the beehive on the Golden Bough, i.e. when
the hive comes into view the bee disappears and vice versa, when the beehive
disappears below the western horizon the Pleiades as a bee becomes visible over
the eastern horizon and flies up leaving the beehive behind.  The fleur de Lis
is the symbol of the head of Scorpio as the lotus head,  the eternal sprout from
the cosmic mound, the Tree of Life, the cross etc. and  at this point in time as
it comes up over the eastern horizon , the Pleiades as a bee sets perfectly in
the West; So, the bee is a complimentary addition to the Fleur de Lis and if the
image of the Fleur de Lis is turned upside down it resembles a bee. The Maya saw
the Center of the Milky Way as the underworld and depicted it in art and thought
as a beehive with priests going in and out; Therefore, they must have thought of
themselves as being associated with bees. When the center of the Milky Way rises
the Pleiades sets, again the scene and concept of the bee disappearing under the
horizon as the hive becomes visible and vice versa, when the hive sets the bee
flies up and away leaving the hive behind until it sets and disappears into the
hive again, leaving just the hive to be seen.  Sense  the Pleiades are seen
worldwide as the gateway into and out of the underworld with such celebrations
as Halloween, concepts as the  Omphalos Stone,  Jacob’s ladder, titles such as
Brimos, etc. it all seems rather universal and this is why the Pleiades, and by
association, the bee, is a key component to the occult.
