Saturn and its Moons

The planet Saturn was used to represent the God Cronus.  It is a very interesting planet with a formation that looks like an eye at its south pole and a formation that looks like a pentagram at its north pole.  The moons of Saturn are named after the Titans in Greek mythology.

According to Wikipedia:
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Named after the Roman god of agriculture, Saturn, its astronomical symbol () represents the god's sickle. Saturn is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of Earth.[10][11] While only one-eighth the average density of Earth, with its larger volume Saturn is just over 95 times more massive than Earth.
Saturn has at least 62 moons, 53 of which have formal names.[78] Titan, the largest, comprises more than 90% of the mass in orbit around Saturn, including the rings.[79] Saturn's second largest moon, Rhea, may have a tenuous ring system of its own,[80] along with a tenuous atmosphere. Many of the other moons are very small: 34 are less than 10 km in diameter and another 14 less than 50 km but larger than 10 km.[85] Traditionally, most of Saturn's moons have been named after Titans of Greek mythology. Titan is the only satellite in the Solar System with a major atmosphere in which a complex organic chemistry occurs. It is the only satellite with hydrocarbon lakes.[88][89]
Saturn's moon Enceladus has often been regarded as a potential base for microbial life Evidence of this life includes the satellite's salt-rich particles having an "ocean-like" composition that indicates most of Enceladus's expelled ice comes from the evaporation of liquid salt water.

Queen of Heaven Cemetery and more....

I visited 2 cemeteries, today, in Hillside, Illinois.  They were the Queen of Heaven Cemetery and Mt. Carmel Cemetery.  They are said to be haunted and one is said to be the site of Mother Mary visitations.  I took many pictures inside one of the indoor mausoleums (4 stories of burials) and the stained glass windows, chapel, and art work were very stunning.  In addition, the artwork contained the language of symbols.  We should not be afraid of this symbolism, but rather seek to understand it fully.  I did not feel afraid too much, but on the 3rd floor, I did feel afraid as if I was not alone.  Here are the pictures:

See the Phoenix?

See the All Seeing Eye?

See the man wearing the Jewish Ephod?

This rooster symbol was associated with St. Peter (the alleged 1st Pope)

See the skull at the feet of Mary Magdalen?  What does it mean?

See what this window says?  Morning Star, Mystical Rose, and so on.
