Occult Symbolism That Is Hidden in Plain Sight

My goal is to write articles that go against the flow to pique discussion, offer a different perspective, and connect some dots.


Occult Symbols

There are many symbols and occult references that stand out in today's music culture. From the historical artifacts musical artists carry around today, it seems the occult world has never really gone away—in fact, it has become more flagrant and blatant.

The problem is that many are unaware of the meanings behind what they consider to be purely artistic entertainment with no real hidden meanings or agendas behind them.

However, there are many artists who promote their music using occult influences. The following evidence will show striking similarities with occult ideologies that are synonymous with popular mainstream artists in the music industry.

The following information presented will parallel accounts from ancient cultures to recent ones. There are too many similarities for it to be just a coincidence.

The music culture has aligned itself with something much more than just poetic lyrics and catchy sounds. The symbolic veil is thinning between the physical and spiritual realm, but many are too blind to see it. It is important to be aware of the occult agenda that is manifesting in greater force these days.

Kayne West: Masonic Rite Of Passage

Kanye West is a popular music artist who promotes his music with imagery that has deep occult meaning rooted in Freemasonry. The representation of the pillars behind him is ubiquitous with many cultures as an entrance or gateway that holds the key to power and enlightenment. Kanye West is pictured at the gateway as the chosen one representing the hidden rulers of the world that reside behind him.

The ancient Egyptian god Horus was considered to be the sky god who was represented in the symbol of the single all-seeing eye. The one eye is the most well known in occult symbolism and is where the Great Seal of the United States originates from.

The symbolism of Horus is very important in Freemasonry. The path of the initiate through the Masonic degrees is descriptive of the process by which the Eye of Horus is opened.

The pillared gateway is for the exclusive illuminated ones. Kanye West is seen wearing a Horus pendant that has importance and significant meaning, not only in ancient Egyptian culture, but in Freemasonry as well.

The horned females next to Kanye represent two goddesses of ancient Egypt, Isis and Hathor. Isis was the goddess of nature, magic, and motherhood. Hathor was the goddess of music, dance, and fertility. They are known as the protectors of the dead as they journey into the afterlife.

In the occult, the initiate symbolically dies and is reborn. Kanye West is standing under the Sword of Damocles as part of a Masonic ritual to obtain the 33rd degree. This rite happens in public, and the more there are witnesses, the more power is given. In a metaphorical sense, Kanye West kills off his former self and is reborn to receive power right in front of his public audience.

Taylor Swift: Masonic Initiation

In 2009, Taylor Swift was humiliated by Kanye West as she received the best female video award at the VMA's (Video Music Awards). Kanye interrupted her by taking the mic and said that Beyonce had the best video of all-time. As part of a Masonic initiation, Taylor Swift was to be humiliated in front of her peers when receiving her first prestigious award before the queen of the ceremony, Beyonce Knowles.

Proceeding the humiliation, Taylor Swift was allowed to have her moment appearing in a red dress with Beyonce who was wearing a dress of the same colour. As they both hugged, all of a sudden some text flashed above them on the TV screen as they embraced. The message or text was:


Many fail to see the symbolic display of Taylor Swift's initiation as being one of the chosen ones who is part of an exclusive inside group. The ordeal she had to go through was the rite of passage through an occult ritual that was performed in public music. Many cannot see that it is not just purely entertainment, but something much more sinister was taking place.

The Significance of the Number 40

Forty is the number of trial and privation in the Bible. There were forty days of the Great Flood and forty years Moses wandered in the desert. Christ was tempted by the devil while he spent forty days in the wilderness. In essence, forty is symbolic for choosing between life and death.

What you may find interesting is that every eight years the planet Venus forms a pentagram and returns to its original point every forty years with a forty-day regression. The number forty has significance in both mainstream religion and the occult.

Does the number 40 have any hidden meaning as it was flashed on the screens of all those who were watching the VMA awards that night?


Does this text have a subliminal or some hidden message? Can it be a message that could be deciphered by certain people?

Do you think it could mean, "Ready for the 40 Before the Apollyon Temple Order."

And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name APOLLYON. - Revelation 9:11

Notice the name Apollyon in the Christian Bible verse, but also the chapter number and verse number. It is 9:11. Could this be a reference to an event that was to happen in the future?

13 is a prime number.

The Significance of Prime Numbers in the Occult

Prime numbers have been used in the occult that have no divisors other than itself. They are believed by the Masons and the Illuminati to have special powers.

The Video Music Awards (VMA's) were held on September 13th, 2009.

Taylor and Beyonce's symbolic embrace with a momentary flash of text on the screen above them could be a message to the indoctrinated followers about a future event. These followers are those who have pledged loyalty and allegiance in exchange for fame and fortune. They would possibly know the mysterious and mystical hidden message behind the code.

June 25th, 2009 is remembered for the deaths of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Sky Saxon. Careful planning was carried out according to the correct numbers if their rituals and sacrifices were to be successful.

In the occult, human sacrifice is also part of the ceremony.

Tragic events have occurred and were carried out carefully according to the sacred occult number 11. On the 11th day of the 9th month in the year 2001 (9+1+1=11) the American Airlines flight number 11 crashed into the world trade centre. United Airlines flight number 77 crashed into the Pentagon (11x7=77). The north and south Twin Towers were 110 stories tall (11x10=110). It happened on the 254th day of the year (2+5+4=11).

Also, on September 11th, 1990, George W. Bush gave a congressional speech about moving towards a New World Order. When President Bush visited New York after the attacks, he was pictured with a fireman with a helmet number 164 (1+6+4=11).

September 11th, 2001 is one of the biggest lying wonders of the world.

Unfortunately, many are blind to seeing the hidden meaning behind the current events that are taking place right in front of our eyes today.

Occult Symbolism: The Mark of Ownership and Deception

Occult symbolism has become mainstream, but many do not recognize it for what it is because of the lack of knowledge about its origins. From music, fashion, and the entertainment industries there is a surge in occult symbolism that is hidden in plain sight. Symbols are created as a mark of ownership giving special significance to the one who uses it.

Symbols and imagery are a way to manipulate our thought process on issues on things such as economics, war, politics, and religion. The masses are obliging and embracing Illuminati ideologies to support their agenda of attaining a one-world-system that is disguised in ecumenical words like global, peace, unity, security and safety. There is a New World Order that is being promoted where a certain elite group has control over government, industry, and media throughout the world.

Many may call this conspiracy theory, but a New World Order is a phrase that has been used and documented by many world leaders. From the time of the Tower of Babel to today certain people have strived to take complete control of the world. The implementation of this agenda should be obvious, but many are too blind as they cannot see the pronounced ostentatiousness of what is happening right in front of their eyes. The paradigm shift is in full force as government and religious institutions are in alignment with this agenda.

We are in a time of utmost importance and urgency and wake up from the oppression and bondage of this world that the mainstream media promotes and expose their deception for what it is.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. - Cicero, 42 B.C.


If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

— Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

Are you awake or sleeping with the rest of the masses out there?

The current events and trends as they are unfolding today are part of a greater malevolent plan.

Seek the truth and you will find it and encourage others too as well.

People who have taken the time and energy to sign up and comment how much "time you're wasting" .. you just made your own point. If you were confident it were not true, why would you have to say anything at all?

Understand that the author has presented their case for pervasive, and profound occult manipulations on a whole societal level. The beauty of life is you have free will to disagree with the author. You are not bound or enslaved to his one and only point of view. This is ABUNDANTLY more important for trustworthiness than the material substance of his arguments (which are sound, though not conclusive). This fact alone that you are free to consider the evidence and not obligated to think anything at all, to me, lends enormous credibility to the possibility of a malevolent and secretly manipulated society.

A luciferian cannot ever make you hate God using logic. They can only do so through deception, whereby your free will to choose has been removed / subverted. Rational thinkers need to consider the argument in the forwards direction. If a person were going to do something evil that would harm you, would they present themselves as ugly and repulsive? No, obviously not. Evil will always present itself in the form of something sweet and attractive (not all attractive things are evil, this is not what I said). Rather than ask the backwards question "Why would somebody want to commit evil acts?" A rational person would ask "Why WOULDN'T someone want to commit evil acts?" But human emotion always gets in the way, and the majority soothe themselves by saying "It could never happen".

Wilder more improbable things have happened my friend. Use occam's razor. Stop trying to jump through hoops to rationalize the deceptive words and acts around you every day. Simplify.

The danger of these well meaning sites on symbolism is they unintentionally reinforce untrue myths of god, satan, etc.

There is absolutely no empirical evidence that leads to proof of any of those myths. So what happens is an attempt at sharing logical facts of the significance of symbol power keeps people in the heaven/hell fear based mode.

Just because sociopaths believe in something like the satan myth to justify pathological behavior doesn't mean it is real except in their delusional minds.

Yes, mathematics and sacred geometry create amazing designs, healing formations, and basically are working with energy connecting the seen and unseen power, but boogieman beliefs tend to invalidate it to new comers.

Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on January 31, 2016:

As a Freemason myself and having friends and family who are also Freemasons and also being as interested as I am in the true nature of the human mind, I have studied Freemasonry, occultism and the subconscious mind for a very large portion of my life. My father (who is very highly ranked in Freemasonry) would swear to this day that Freemasonry and everything associated with it is inherently good whereas I have come to the opposite conclusion. Freemasonry is absolutely packed with occult symbolism and acted out rituals which have been around a lot longer than Freemasonry has and this symbolism and these rituals are being used to further an agenda. Here's the exciting part for me: I know exactly how these symbols are being used and why, I know what they are being used for and I know the effect that they are having, I know the ultimate agenda behind them, I know how it all works and it all goes very deep and gets very scary. The scary thing is that most Freemasons themselves can't even see it - they have been "hoodwinked"! (a phrase very relative to Freemasonry, as I'm sure you're already aware).
