Leviticus 21 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "the (Castor) daughter of any (Pollux) priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her (Pollux) father" (21:9), so "she shall be (solar) burnt with fire" (21:9) is 150° minutes later. The punishment of death was to be by (lunar) stoning first, according to Leviticus 20:2, Leviticus 20:27, and Deuteronomy 22:21. Burning (Leviticus 20:14; 21:9) does not mean death by fire, or burning alive, but, as we may clearly see from Joshua 7:15 and Joshua 7:25, burning the corpse after death. This was also the case in Leviticus 21:9 and Genesis 38:24.


No (Tonsure) Baldness Upon Head,
Nor Corners of Beard Shaved (Like an Egyptian)

21:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Speak unto the (Gemini) priests the sons of (Hercules) Aaron, and (red radius) say unto them, There shall none be defiled for the dead among his people:

2 But for his kin, that is near unto him (Pollux), that is, for his (Castor) mother, and for his (Castor) father, and for his (Castor) son, and for his (Castor) daughter, and for his (Castor) brother.

3 And for his (Castor) sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no husband; for her may he be defiled.

4 But he shall not defile himself, being a (Pollux) chief man among his (Gemini) people, to profane himself.

5 They shall not make (lunar) baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the (red radius) corner of their beard, nor make any (red radius) cuttings in their flesh.

A man who shaves off his beard is like someone saying to God, "You made a mistake. I will correct it."

6 They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the Lord made by (solar) fire, and the (solar golden) bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.

7 They shall not take a (Castor) wife that is a whore, or profane (lost her virginity?); neither shall they take a (Castor) woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God.

8 Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the (solar golden) bread of thy God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the Lord, which sanctify you, am holy.

9 And the (Castor) daughter of any (Pollux) priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her (Pollux) father: she shall be (solar) burnt with fire.

10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the (solar) (red radius) anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor (red radius) rend his clothes;

11 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his (Castor) father, or for his (Castor) mother;

12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the Lord.

13 And he (Pollux) shall take a (Castor) wife in her virginity.

14 A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he (Pollux) shall take a (Castor) virgin of his own (Gemini) people to wife.

15 Neither shall he profane his (lunar white) seed among his people: for I the Lord do sanctify him.

16 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

17 Speak unto (Hercules) Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the (solar golden) bread of his God.

18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man (Big Dog), or a (red radius cane) lame, or he that hath a (Cetus) flat nose, or any thing superfluous,

19 Or a man that is brokenfooted (Cepheus), or brokenhanded (Castor),

20 Or crookbackt (Taurus), or a dwarf (Canis or Ursa Minor), or that hath a blemish in his (lunar) eye, or be scurvy, or (lunar) scabbed, or hath his stones broken (Pollux);

21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of (Hercules) Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the Lord made by (solar) fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the (solar golden) bread of his God.

22 He shall eat the (solar golden) bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.

23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the (solar golden) altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the Lord do sanctify them.

24 And (Ophiuchus) Moses told it unto (Hercules) Aaron, and to his (Cepheus, Perseus) sons, and unto all the (Gemini) children of Israel.
