The Mysteries of The Number 12

We should now spend some time together studying the various codes of the Compound Number 12. I don't mean the analysis of 12 in the Compound Number definitions which relates to an individual's Karma, but the number l2 itself.

On the East, three Gates; on the North, three Gates; on the South, three Gates; on the West, three Gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Revelations 21:13

There are 12 astrological signs, from Aries through Pisces. The Earth makes one orbit of the Sun through these 12 signs in the same amount of time the Moon takes to orbit the Earth l2 times. The planet Jupiter is larger than all the other planes in our solar system combined, and Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete one orbit of the Sun.

All great spiritual leaders have had l2 followers. The l2 tribes of Israel were founded by the 12 sons of Jacob. The people of Greece worshipped 12 gods, and there were l2 princes of Ishmael. The great Osiris of Egypt had 12 followers - and the Aztec Quetzalcoatl had 12 disciples. There are 12 gods in the Brahman Zodiac.

King Arthur had 12 Knights of the Round Table. Buddha had 12 disciples. There were l2 altars of St. James and l2 divisions of Solomon's Temple.

A Board of Directors is composed of l2 executives, and there are 12 men and women on a jury. There are 12 basic mineral salts in homeopathic medicine. When gold is weighed, there are 12 ounces to the pound; likewise with the weighing of drugs. There are 12 inches in a foot. Most fascinating of all, the Earth's minerals are also ruled by the number 12. For example, all diamonds have 12 sides and must be cut along these 12 axes.

As we know,Jesus chose 12 disciples (the Single 3 again in his life). As with all spiritual leaders and their followers, Jesus was the l3th - or the Master. Each of the 12 apostles represents one of the 12 Star Signs. The l3th is the Master, who has learned to combine the positive qualities of each of the 12 Star Signs, and to conquer the negative traits of each. The Master combines the courage and innocence of Aries with the patience and stability of Taurus, the versatility and mental alertness of Gemini, the sensitivity and protectiveness of Cancer, the nobility, generosity, and love of Leo, the exquisite discrimination of Virgo, the fairness and justice of Libra, the depth of knowledge of Scorpio, the honesty and idealism of Sagittarius, the endurance and wisdom of Capricorn, the prophetic vision and tolerance of Aquarius, and the compassion and enlightenment of Pisces.

He has learned to cast away the rash, impulsive behaviour of Aries, the stubbornness of Taurus (which is only Taurus patience turned inside out), the irresponsibility of Gemini, the fears and possessiveness of Cancer, the arrogance of Leo, the critical hair-splitting of Virgo, the indecision of Libra, the revenge and retaliation of Scorpio, the blunt speech of Sagittarius, the coldness and ambition of Capricorn, the unpredictable behaviour of Aquarius, and the evasiveness, timidity, and deception of Pisces. Do you see now why the number 13 (the Master) is not really 'unlucky', as most people mistakenly believe?
