The soul moves through seven planetary realms before arriving on the earth plane. This is why Christian baptism traditionally involves seven immersions of purification. They correspond to the seven planetary realms.
Initiates of the ancient mysteries were also immersed seven times. They were overseen by four priests. Baptisms nowadays generally involve three handfuls of water symbolizing the trinity, but this practice is rooted in the original seven immersions.
In the Mysteries of Eleusis, revered by the Greeks and Romans, the Torchbearer holds the Sun. The Altar Superintendent holds the Moon. The last priest holds the Caduceus (Mercury), which is a winged staff with two snakes wrapped around it. The Caduceus was an ancient astrological symbol associated with the Greek god Hermes, the messenger for the gods.
Theologians may quarrel, but the mystics of the world speak the same language ~ Meister Eckhart
The Hierophant (Mysteries of Eleusis and Tarot deck) wears a crown which refers to Corona Borealis, which is a small constellation in the Northern Celestial Hemisphere. He also wears a mantel depicting the heavens. He presents symbols of the Creator in his hand. Whenever an initiate was crowned, a robe was donned hiding 12 other robes beneath it. These symbolized the 12 signs of the Zodiac.
Astrology, tarot, numerology, and mythology are all in essence one system. The Initiate’s role is to decipher the meaning of this system as it relates to the world and people in it.
