The Star, the Comet and Pizza

I’ve been wondering about the enigmatic tarot card from the latest Economist magazine. At the center there is a comet, and the suggestion that it’s somehow related to Comet Ping Pong that is at the center of the Pizzagate controversy. I’ll try figure out if there is a connection.

Below is a picture of Come Ping Pong restaurant. I had seen it before, but I hadn’t noticed the crescent and the star on the vectors or chevrons of the sign. It’s most commonly known as the symbol for Islam. I don’t think that the restaurant is a Mosque or otherwise associated with Islam. So what’s with the symbol then?

According to About Religion website the crescent and the star has been used in the Middle-East thousands of years before Islam. It had been used in Constantinoble long before the Muslim Turks conquered it in 1453 creating the Ottoman Empire. The website mentions that “(t)here are also reports that the crescent moon and star were used to represent the Carthaginian goddess Tanit or the Greek goddess Diana.”

According to Wikipedia the star and crescent looked different in Byzantium in the first century BC, and was associated with Byzantium’s patron goddess Artemis-Hecate. Artemis is the Greek equivalent of Diana.

The crescent was below the star, which was eight-pointed. The eight-pointed star represents Venus, which is known as the morning and evening star. Sometimes the star was simplified into a single dot.

These symbols represent Tanit.

In the left one the star is a dot, and in the right it has six points. The image on the right also resembles the “Hands up, don’t shoot” -pose in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown in 2014. Ishtar also has the same pose in the famous rock carving of her.

Ishtar also represents Venus and is basically the same figure as Tanit. Notice the omega-looking symbols in her hands as well.

The Akkadian sun god Shamash, who represents Saturn, is holding the same omega-like object in his hand. There is also a big eight-pointed star in the center of the Tablet of Shamash, and there are three small star signs above him. According to Wikipedia they are sun, moon and Venus. Wikipedia claims the object in his hand is “a measuring rod and reel of cord”. I am doubtful of this claim, but I don’t know what the object is.

Wikipedia calls the eight-pointed star the symbol of Shamash. His wife or consort is Aya, who is the same as Ishtar. Both the god and the goddess are associated with lions as well. They have the same eight-pointed star and hold the same omega-like object.

As I mentioned, Venus is the morning star. The (in)famous quote from Isaiah 14:12 goes: “How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!” In some translations, such as the King James, morning star is replaced with Lucifer. Lucifer then would be the son of Shamash and Aya, or Tammuz (consort of Ishtar) and Ishtar? In Egyptian terms Lucifer is Horus, son of Osiris and Isis. In Hebrew there is no Lucifer. Lucifer, son of the morning is “helel ben shahar”. Helel stands for “shining one”. In the Ugarit, or Canaanite, culture El (Saturn) has (at least) two sons, Shahar, god of dawn, and Shalim, god of dusk. It appears this Shahar is the same as in the Hebrew Helel ben Shahar.

This would suggest then that Lucifer is not actually the son of Saturn and Venus, but the grandson if Shahar is their son, and Lucifer is his son. However in ancient myths the relations get very confusing and seem to shift from time to time. Often sons marry their mothers and so on, so I don’t want get caught on this. Maybe Shamash is not Osiris, but Ra as well. Let’s just say that they’re part of the same bloodline and move on.

What does the star and crescent symbolize then? It is related to Saturn and Venus, and Lucifer/Horus is their offspring. Perhaps the crescent isn’t related to the moon after all. Osiris/Baal who are more or less the same as Shamash were known as the horned god. The crescent could refer to the horns. The light of Venus shines between them.

I recall the enigmatic commentator known as the Greek, who was first known for his program Ochelli and the Greek and later he was at Uncommon Sense on American Freedom Radio, comment that the star and crescent refers to an eclipse. Perhaps the Venus is eclipsing the sun, or alternatively the picture shows three celestial bodies instead of two. There is the star, the black circle of which only the horns are visible and the a white circle. The white circle might be eclipsing the black one, allowing the star to shine. Let’s say the black circle is the sun, the white circle is the Black Sun, which is often interpreted to mean Saturn, and the star Venus. Perhaps those who revere this symbol want to block out the sun, and allow the star to take its place.

In Hindu myth there is celestial object called Rahu, a decapitated head of a demon that swallows the sun causing eclipses. He seems to represent the Black Sun. I found this image of Rahu where is he swalloing the sun with an 8-pointed star. If you turn the image upside down it could be interpreted as the same thing as the star and crescent. Rahu would become the horns of the crescent and the white circle would get shallowed by it. This interpretation of the symbols would be different as the Rahu, the Black Sun, seems to be the enemy of Shamash and Aya/Ishtar.

Quite frankly I haven’t figured out the exact meaning of these deities and symbols, but I do think the star and crescent refer to this myth. Let’s get back to the Come Ping Pong sign.

There are four vectors or chevrons. It has been noted by several researchers how most space agencies seem to use the vector sign on their logo. He is NASA as an example, but many others can be found.

There are four vectors on the pizzeria sign. I noticed they also form an eight-pointed star. You only have to put the pointy end of each vector together to form a Maltese Cross. A pizza slive also resembles a vector.

I cannot say for a fact that the eight-pointed Maltese Cross refers to the same thing as the star of Ishtar, but I think it’s likely, especially in this context. Then the Comet Ping Pong sign would form another version of the symbol of the star and crescent as the the word “Comet” represents the crescent, or a celestial body eclipsing another, and the cross shines above it. Or at least this is how I interpret it. Do the secret societies then worship some sort of comet? Is this comet Horus, the son of Osiris, or Saturn?

What I do think the symbolism of Comet Ping Pong to mean is that it is a temple to Tanit, or whatever name you use for the whore of Babylon. Wikipedia remarks that worshipers of Tanit engaged in child sacrifice and possibly even cannibalism.

How is this related to the Economist’s tarot card the Star then? Well, the star of Ishtar is The Star. The eight-pointed star. The mother of the comet Horus. A comet resembles a sperm cell. There is even this sperm-like promotional picture of the infamous pizzeria.

Perhaps the tarot card from the Economist suggests that the “man of sin” or “the lawless one” from the Bible will be revealed next year. I recall the Greek saying the “anti-Christ” is 18-years old currently, or on his nineteenth year. I don’t know how he knows this, but I’m curious to see what’s going to happen.

I don’t have all of the answers, but I think this is the myth the revelation of Comet Ping Pong into public and the tarot card suggest. The pedophilia scandal might not be significant at all in the minds of the secret society occultists. They are simply furthering the cause of their mystery religion.
