Nibiru, The Heresy Within Chartres

The magnificent Cathedral at Chartres, France is a Gothic masterpiece adorned with a host of unusual symbolism.  Its origins have been connected to the Knights Templar, the powerful Order of mediaeval Knights who bankrolled much of Europe before succumbing to the charge of Heresy and a subsequent witch-hunt.  Its overpowering stone structure stands as an eternal Testament:  Its focus is the hidden heretical meaning to be found within orthodox teachings. 

When I visited Chartres this year I hoped to discover evidence of the Dark Sun, the binary companion Nibiru.  I thought that it might require some hunting around to find clues and hints among the many artefacts in the Cathedral.  What I was not expecting was clear and self-evident symbolism of Nibiru to be openly portrayed in the heart of the Cathedral.


Chartres Cathedral is the centre of a pilgrimage tradition with its focus-point the Black Madonna, also known as the Virgin of the Crypt.  There appears to have been an altar to the Virgin going back as far as the 6th Century in the then church at Chartres.  The church was known to be dedicated to the Virgin as early as the 8th Century and received a relic called the 'Veil of the Virgin'.  The crypt became a centre of healing, in a similar way to Lourdes today. However, the ancient statue of 'Our Lady of the Crypt' was burnt in front of the church in 1793 during the French Revolution, which itself seems an extreme event for a holy Roman relic.  What had aroused such animosity among the revolutionaries to make such a public show of burning this artefact? A more modern version is now found in the famous crypt of the Cathedral.

The Cathedral's guide-book has this to say about the object of the pilgrimages:

"The crypt is the origin and heart of the pilgrimage. For many centuries Our Lady of Chartres has accepted the homage of her votaries. Our Lady of the "Belle Verrière" was once an object of veneration, and particularly invoked by women before childbirth, and formerly, there was the gilt statue on the main altar, where people knelt in prayer as today before Our Lady of the Pillar." [my emphasis]

Chartres is full of female imagery connected with the Virgin.  This concentration on the feminine has raised the idea among many that the iconography of Chartres Cathedral represents ancient pagan Goddess worship wrapped up in the orthodox Christian tradition.  Such claims are helped along by the bizarre inclusion of Zodiacal and Astrological imagery in the Cathedral.  These images owe more to Paganism than Catholicism.  The suggestion, then, is that the veneration of the Virgin is tantamount to ancient Goddess Worship of figures such as Diana, Cybele and Isis, and the like.  If the Virgin represents an Isis-like goddess, then Christ is Horus, her all-conquering child of ancient Egyptian mythology. 


Having no place in Christian teachings, such suggestions are deeply heretical.  Yet they strike a chord among many, and it is indeed difficult to explain what the strange symbolism of Chartres is about otherwise.  Particularly when we consider the symbolism of the Lady of the Pillar.


Our Lady of the Pillar is a classic example of the Black Virgin and was carved for a ground-level shrine in the Cathedral that would draw the worshippers away from the busy main altar in the crypt.  Black Virgin statues are the subject of passionate followings by local worshippers, but are generally frowned upon by the orthodoxy within the Catholic Church.

Their origin is somewhat opaque, possibly because the Church prefers to keep a low profile about them, and certainly does not study their original source.  The pagan connection is a fascinating possibility, and is further supported by the astronomical imagery employed, as described by Picknett and Prince:

"It is acknowledged that the early Christians appropriated much of Isis' iconography for the Virgin Mary. For example, she was given several of Isis' titles - such as 'Star of the Sea' and 'Queen of Heaven'.  And, traditionally, Isis was shown standing on a crescent moon, or with stars in her hair or around her head: so is Mary the Virgin".


Certainly, one cannot deny the stellar symbolism literally surrounding Our Lady of the Pillar at Chartres.  A further hint at the Pagan meaning is the inclusion of a scene of Worship of Diana in the stain glass above the shrine.  I would like to draw your attention to the highly remarkable symbols above the Black Virgin depicted in my photographs.  She is elevated upon a pillar, with Christ/Horus, within a hemisphere of stars, representative of the vault of the night sky.  Above the sphere of the stars is a curious white, radiant symbol.  It is contained within an arch that has seven red lights resplendent about it. 

This imagery is inexplicable.  At least to anyone unfamiliar with Dark Star research.  These are the symbols of the Dark Companion of the Sun; the mythical Nibiru, representative of a distant encircling massive planet categorised as a sub-brown dwarf.  The radiant emblem central to the motif is the Dark Star Nibiru itself, held aloft beyond the Heavens, indicating its hidden nature beyond the planetary spheres.  The seven red lights are its attendant moons.  The overall impression is that of the other Dark Star icon; the 'Winged Disc'.


I have argued that many of the ancient religions, and some of the more modern esoteric traditions, hold Nibiru to be their hidden Truth.  This Truth is heretical to Monotheistic faith, and is represented by an underground tradition of symbolism that to some extent has been clouded by the mists of time:  Nibiru, I argue, last came past the Solar System 2000 years ago and is currently about as distant as it can be.  But its quiet intrusion into the skies 2000 years ago created a revolution in religion.  The child Horus was born again to the World in the form of Christ.  It was an astrological arrival of a dead star whose cyclical return was so buried in ancient history that it had been almost entirely forgotten about.  Except for some vague references to the return of a Messiah.

What has this to do with the Virgin?  The 'Son of the Sun' was born into the Heavens near to a specific star: Sirius.  The bright star Sirius is a stellar representative of the Goddess Isis, and is thus representative of the Virgin Mary, by ancient association between the two cults of these allied female deities. 

This is the true meaning of Our Lady of the Pillar in Chartres Cathedral: that Christ was born when the dead failed star Nibiru dropped briefly into the Heavenly Sphere near Sirius, or Isis.  It appeared as a purple/red Winged Disc with seven accompanying stars, 'born' of Sirius.  So the star-covered shrine represents the perihelion transit of the celestial Crown and Seven Stars of Nibiru through the Duat, the celestial home of Isis, the mother goddess. 

Its emergence into the consciousness of Mankind is indeed a rightful focus of continued veneration, as it was in ancient times.

A frequent contributor to the Dark Star Theory web-site, Greg Jenner has sent through a selection of prophetic quotations attributed to the devout, visionary Catholic Veronica Lueken.  The visions were from the Virgin Mary and involve a 'Ball of Redemption', which is called a 'Second Sun'.  It seems to be fitting selection of prophecies to include here:

"God, your Father, sends the sun to shine upon you. God, your Father, can also send the sun to burn you. A second sun lies out in your atmosphere, the Ball of Redemption. I repeat, My children, it is not a myth, nor a story; it is a fact." - Our Lady, December 31, 1974

"There is in your atmosphere of earth a Ball of Redemption hurrying to earth. It is of supernatural origin. Those who have cast aside the knowledge of the supernatural shall not be given the grace to observe the coming Chastisement. When it enters upon your atmosphere, hearts shall be gripped with fear. Many shall run to hide themselves, recognizing the wrath of their Lord." - Our Lady, September 13, 1975

"And it will be known to man because when the Ball of Redemption is used as the chastising agent, you will see it for about two weeks before it ever hits earth. And that, I can assure you, will be a most frightening incident for most. - Veronica's commentary, July 15, 1973

"The Warning, My child, will come soon, and if mankind does not heed this sign from the Eternal Father, there will follow fast on it the Chastisement by the Ball of Redemption." - Our Lady, August 21, 1975.

Veronica - I see a great light, a flash! It's so hot, this flash! Oh, there's a large ball of fire. Oh, it's very hot, and it's whirling through the sky, and it's shooting off sparks behind it. The sparks--they're large pieces of rock, and they're falling, falling down.
Now the waters, the waters are rising very high. I can see the waters. Oh! Oh! Oh, the waters have come in. They're so high! And I see some cities. I see a large city, and the waters are now--oh, they're pounding against the ground. And now I see the buildings--they're falling! Now the ground is cracking, and the buildings are falling into the holes. Oh! Oh! Oh!  -  
June 16, 1973

"In this chastisement, My children, billions will be lost. Many lives will be lost." - Our Lady, October 6, 1973

"The world as you know it shall be changed--not completely, My child, annihilated as in the time of Noah, but changed. The peace promised shall be given at this time." - Our Lady, December 24, 1974

"Watch, My child, what is to be...."
Now I see--everything is flattened back there. It looked like it was a city, but it's flat. And there's smoke rising, and everything looks like it was just knocked over like a stack of cards. Oh! Oh!...
"Look, My child, out there. The mariners are weeping."
Veronica - Mariners weeping? Now out on the water there are ships out on the sea. And I see something very strange. I see the men there. They're all holding their hands to their faces. And they look like they're actually crying. The men are crying.
And then one man is saying: "But that I could have the dust to throw over my head of that once great city. Oh, Babylon the great, you have fallen!" They're all looking now onto the--over towards the land, and the land is just like it has been completely destroyed. - Our Lady,
April 13, 1974

Veronica-And I see a man, a very kind man. He has--oh, He has very white hair and a heavy beard, and He's smiling. He looks like, sort of like a real nice grandfather. Oh, He thinks--oh, our Father is smiling.... And He's holding--it looks like a scepter in His right hand. And He's pointing down now to His chair, and He's, like bouncing a ball....
"My child, that is a most tremendous ball you are seeing. It is the Ball of Redemption. It is at the fingertips of the Eternal Father to do as He wills. Pray that mankind will awaken and escape this great Chastisement, My child. It will rush into your atmosphere without warning. Scientists will look with fright, as will the ordinary man.
"Know, My child, that no scientist will know an explanation for its appearance." - Our Lady,
September 6, 1975

"And the great peace that Our Lady promised at Fatima, which has been now delayed because Her requests were not really answered--so the great peace that She promised at Fatima, that will not come, I can tell you now, until after the Ball of Redemption, until this general cleansing.  - Veronica's commentary, December 24, 1972

Veronica - Oh, my! Our Lady is pointing up to the sky, and I can see a tremendously large ball of fire. It's beyond description. It's the most frightening thing I've ever seen. And it's going through the air at a very fast speed, and I can see over on the right side of the sky an outline of the earth.
    And the ball is heading for the earth and it's striking, the tail is setting fire to the side, I can see here, of the earth. Oh! Oh! The tail has intersected the earth, and the ball is now circling the earth. Oh! Now it's growing very dark. I can feel the great heat. Ohh! -
August 21, 1976

"You ask, My child, why this has been called the Ball of Redemption? Because, My child, it is the manner in which the Eternal Father plans to redeem mankind from his sins." - Our Lady, April 17, 1976
