Friday, December 21, 2012



ON Friday at 11:11 a.m. Universal Time (midday in the UK and Europe) we finally come to that fateful date everyone has been talking about for years — the December 21, 2012, Solstice.

This is a special day every year in the Religion of Antinous for it marks the return of SOL INVICTUS, the Unconquerable Sun.

The return of the sun is the Conquest of Unconquered Light over chaos and darkness, the emergence of Phanes-Eros-Dionysus from the cosmic egg.

On this day, we observe the moment when the unknown god Bythus-Narcissus gazed into the pool of the abyss and saw his own reflection. His image caused the birth of the thrice-great Phanes-Eros-Zagreus, the saviors, who together are called Antinous Invictus.

The three-fold mystery of their birth is the descent of Phanes-Beauty, Eros-Love and Zagreus-Ecstasy into our world. These great spirits are the divine light of Antinous the God, it is their presence at the ground of our soul that is our immortal spark.

Within us all is the perfect image of the perfect face of light and love, a reflection of Narcissus-Bythus gazing down into the darkness of our world.

This year, of course, is extra special because 21st December is the final date in the Mayan Long Count calendar. Despite all the croakings of doom by alarmists, we do not believe that the December Solstice 2012 is the end of the world.

But we do believe it is the end of an exceedingly long cycle called The Great Year which lasts for 26,000 years. It is the end of a Great Cycle. But it is also the beginning of the next one.

It is an ending — but not the end of the world. It is the darkness just before dawn.

That twilight began with the discovery of the planet Uranus in 1781. Uranus is the planet of abrupt "eureka" discoveries and just think how our world has been revolutionized since 1781!

Then in 1996 Uranus entered its home sign of Aquarius, which many consider the true dawning of the Age of Aquarius, which marks the first 2,000-year segment of the new Great Year which will last 26,000 years.

It is no coincidence that, soon after Uranus entered Aquarius in the 1990s, Antonyus Subia founded the New Religion of Antinous.

We cannot say what will happen except that Aquarius is not only beneficent and altruistic but also somewhat cold and brainy-rationalistic. Above all, Aquarius loves change for the sake of change ... anything can happen ... and it will happen way differently than anything we can imagine.

No, the world won't come to an end on 21st December 2012 — not the climactic way it did at the movies.

But in a few short years we will begin to see that the world is becoming vastly different — just remember that this change began back in 1781 — and it is now moving to warp speed.

And as religions which have dominated the world for the past 2,000 years fall by the wayside, the once and future Religion of Antinous will shine anew.

Antinous Invictus the perfect image of the perfect face of light and love will illuminate the way ahead.

It was Hadrian's dream to create the perfect civilization ... a civilization based on the Hellenistic principles of love, beauty, learning and tolerance. And it was his dream to create the perfect religion ... a religion which would encompass all others.

So the Priests of Antinous urge you not to crawl under your bed in fear of "doomsday" but instead to celebrate the love and beauty of Antinous ... the gay god who embraces all other deities ... from Kukulkan to Freyr ... as seen in this portrait by Flamen Antonyus Subia....
