Secrets of the Sphinx©
Mysteries of the Ages Revealed
Andrew Tomasi Raymond


   Secrets of the Sphinx by Andrew Raymond is an amazing act of syntheses and one of the more informative books to be published in recent times. By reading this review and other pages linked from this site, you will discover that our scientists divide the 25,800-year cycle of our Earth into twelve ages instead of twelve months, and that the Great Sphinx in Egypt marks the "Happy New Year" of this cycle. The 25,800-year cycle of our planet with its four seasons is called the Great Year, the Platonic year (Plato's year), or the precession of the equinoxes in a comprehensive dictionary.

   The four seasons of the great year are marked by Egypt’s four minor sphinxes, Ezekiel's four heads of the beast, Revelation’s four cherubim, and astronomy’s Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, and Scorpio (Abraham's Eagle) constellations.

Our Current Position in the Great Year
(Cross takes 25,800 years to make one turn through the twelve ages)

   Our astrological birth signs no longer coincide with the sun's location in the constellations of the Zodiac because of precession. Even the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are now the Tropic of Taurus and the Tropic of Scorpio when we observe the sun on the solstices? Our astrologers and map makers neglected to update our present position in the cosmos for over 2,000 years. We are not the astrological birth signs the newspapers and a majority of the astrologers proclaim we are!

   The North star (pole star) also changes with the precession of the equinoxes. The North star was Thuban (Alpha Draconis) when the Great Pyramid was constructed to align with true North. The descending passage of the Great Pyramid points to Thuban, the most accurately aligned pole star of all the North stars in the 25,800-year cycle of our Earth.

25,800-Year Cycle of Earth

   Comprehend that the word sphinx means to bind or close a circle tightly, and that the Great Sphinx binds Virgo and Leo in the Zodiac on the ceiling of the Portico — at Esna's Khnum Temple. The Great Sphinx marks the "Happy New Year" of our present Platonic year, and Leo was the first age in this great year. Listen when the Vatican informs us every Christmas Eve, when it reads the ancient Calens (calendar) from Rome, that it was the sixth age or the Piscean Age when Jesus, the fisherman, was born 2,000 years ago. Even the ancient Persians called Polaris the "turning point star" 5,000 years before it became our current pole star between the sixth and seventh ages.

    Precession of the Vernal Equinox
    (Currently, we are at the end of the Sixth Age -- halfway around one great year)

   When Moses threw out the golden calf, he knew it was the end of the Taurus Age or the fourth age in our present great year. He instructed his followers to get rid of the bull, put lambs' blood on the doors, and place Rams' horns in the temples. By looking at the Master Calendar, the Mazzaroth, or the Zodiac in the heavens, anyone could see that it was the dawning of the Age of Aries the ram or lamb. It was the start of the fifth age in our current great year.

   It was the third age, or the Age of Gemini 6,000 to 8,000 years ago, when some people on the Earth believe Adam and Eve lived. Gemini is also known as the twins or Adam and Eve in the ancient Zodiacs.

   At one time in history, the Vernal Equinox used to indicate New Year's Day in our annual calendar until Julius Caesar moved it to January 1 in 45 BC. The names of our months still reflect March as the first month of the year. In Latin, Septem is seven, Octo is eight, Novem is nine, and Decem is ten. This is why the name of an age is determined by where the sun is on the Vernal Equinox. The megalithic monuments like Stonehenge, Chichen Itza, and Casa Grande are all trying to find the Vernal Equinox or the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

   Understand how Nostradamus, Revelation writers, and the Mayans could have used this 25,800-year cycle of our planet to predict what can be expected as we dawn the age of Aquarius. The ancients refer to the coupled-ages of Pisces and Aquarius in the great year as the time for the FisherMan or Merman to return from the sea. The old legends say that he will teach the people how to heal and govern themselves.

   Don't be confused by the misinformed people on the planet. Our scientists inform us that, in the great year, we are beginning the Aquarian Age and leaving the Piscean Age. When someone says, its the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, that is no different then someone saying, it is the beginning of the month of July. Only, ages are around 2,150 years long, while months are made up of approximately 30 days. Many college books inform us that we are commencing a new age in the great year.

   Even Pat Robertson, who throws oranges across the media-air waves at the new age people, wrote a book called The End of the Age. He should realize — if we are eternal as he preaches and it is the end of an age, than it must be the beginning of a new age.

   Catch the "joke of the universe". The Oneness, God, or the Whole says to Itself: I am everything! I am God! I am It! I am the point or a perfect circle! God I am bored! I am so tired of playing with Myself. This is ridiculous. I am tired of being all one or alone.


   Notice that "all one" and "alone" are essentially the same word. If one is all one, then one must be alone. Are we sensing the predicament of the One Who Causes? Being absolutely bored, the Oneness comes up with a bright idea. Why! I'll just split into two. This would be the same way we split into two teams to play football, chess, or checkers. The Perfect Circle, God, or the Whole gets imaginative, and It splits in two or in-to creation.

In-Divided-Dual or Individual

   Once the Oneness or God splits into the two U's (You & You, Us or We), what is a game the universe can play? "Hide and Seek" of course! God can hide from Itself, and spend Its Being trying to find Itself. Give me space to find myself! I have been found! I found it! Most of us know that lost and found departments are normally found together.

A Double of You or A Double U

   The game of the universe is hide and seek. Dis-member to separate. Re-member is to put it back together again or to remember something we have forgotten. Every baby knows this intuitively, until we teach it to babble in words.

   The last 2,000 years has been the Piscean age. Two fish tied together trying to swim apart. We allowed them to swim so far apart, that we lost sight that the opposites are connected. This is the hide stage of the game of "Hide and Seek" in full manifestation. The more we separate them the more lost we become. At this juncture in the great year, we are using less than twelve percent of our brain's potential, and we are only putting one fish on the car bumper. How lost we are!

Piscean Symbol

   The coming of Aquarius, the man or water bearer, gives us two lines that fit back together. We are approaching a time of Atonement (at-one-ment). It is time for us to re-member or awaken. It is time to look down and observe that our right and left hands are connected. Notice that the electric light doesn't work without the plus and minus. The end of the Piscean Age is a time of Revelations. It is time to reveal the truth. Catch the Joke! — It was necessary to get lost just to play.

   Secrets of the Sphinx is a revealing book that is subtitled The Mysteries of the Ages Revealed. It points out that it is not the end of the world, but we can expect some very big seasonal changes — the same as the frost comes and the leaves change colors shortly after the beginning of fall. It will teach you what types of foods will help you stay healthy, look younger, and handle the sun's increasing light at this juncture in the great year.

   Secrets of the Sphinx is an uplifting experience and an easy book to read. You will be thinking about this publication long after you set it down!!

A Few of the Reviews & Letters to Author

Hi Andy!
To begin, I purchased and read your book Secrets of the Sphinx.  It was great!
The reason I am emailing is I thought I'd get your input on this issue.  I have been doing some research
on the "Precession", but I am having a difficult time finding agreement in which sign marks the beginning
or ending of said "Precession".  Can you shed some light on this?  Hopefully this wasn't in your book
because if it was I either missed it or forgot about it.  It's been a while since I read it...LOL!
Peace and Love,

Dear Andy. 
I am fifty seven years of age and like you I have been searching for the truth for
as long as I can remember, through libraries of booksincluding the Bible, and today through
the internet with the advance of technology. I am by no means at your level, but I am steadily
getting there.

Things really started to take off when I learned about Precession and I have been engrossed with
it since. I have even drawn my own precessional charts and spent lots of time drawing dots,lines,
circles, and Pyramids. Although everything I did seemed to make sense in my search, I still could
not quite pull it all together. Then I came across your book and you dotted the I's, and crossed
the T's for me, for which I will be eternally grateful. Especially the hourglass. and the four cherubims.

I will continue to search for the rest of my life, and to put into practice everything I learn.
I would very much like to keep in touch if that's o.k. with you.

a very happy enlightened soul,

A. Raymond,
I mysteriously came across links to your book while  searching for something completely different.
I had to solidify my being grateful for you sharing your knowledge with this letter.
Hopefully you will continue to enlighten , and should our creator see fit, we will meet, either on this plane -
or the next one up.

*One Love*
H. J.


Mr Raymond,
My quest for knowledge has recently lead me to your web site, and your "Secrets of the Sphinx"
book.  I'd just like to say "thank you for writing this book". I've found the book to be packed with
powerful Knowledge, yet easy to read, a rare combo indeed. Again, thanks for providing this revealing info.
Regards Scott

Thank you for you dedication, your heart, and your attitude.
And most of all, thanks for sharing.
 was a confirmation and an inspiration at the perfect time.
Funny how that happens.
All the Best,

I' ve read a shitload of books and have found alot of hidden meanings in the bible. 
Of course, as you are aware, I am finding that the more knowledge and wisdom that
I acquire, the less that I am able to relate to the average person.  Oh well, no turning
back now.  What did St. Paul say?  "It is impossible for those who have once been
enlightened to turn away, for in doing so is like crucifying the Son of God all over again
and subjecting Him to public disgrace."
Lucky charms,
Dr. Dan



Aloha Andrew!
I loved Secrets of The Sphinx! I owned it 10 years ago and gave it to a
friend 'cause I knew they would love it, and they did! I really missed that
book, so I contacted you about 2 years ago when trying to obtain another
copy for myself. You responded, and per your direction, I found a copy, and
have read it several times since. Thank you!

I would love to know if you do any seminars, workshops, etc.

My wife and I would be delighted to experience more of your teachings.

Mahalo for your attention.



It is with great gratitutde that I thank you for providing this information to those who seek it!!
I have one point-of many-that I hope you can clarify. During which age did the current Great Year begin?
I thought that any given Great Year would begin in Leo and then begin again at the next Leo-25,800 years later.
I realize you mentioned that the Age of Aquarius is considered the midpoint of the great year cycle but then the
question was presented that asked to identify if the Age of Pisces was the end of the current Great year.
Chapter 13 provided me much needed insight as to what to expect and how I may continue in my search for
knowledge as we enter the Age of Aquarius.


By the way, I finished your book. I read a hundred pages the first day i got, then i finished the rest in
the next two days. It is a really good book. I let my friend borrow it too, and he said, "This is one of
the only books that I've actually 'tripped balls' reading." We both like it because it's full of
information that can really push our minds to the edges, but it's easy to digest at the same time.
Admittedly, I'll need to read it more to get the full meaning though.


Dear Raymond
Thank you for the downoad of the Sphinx Revealed book. I really appreciate it. I do music with my wife.

Just read your online book and, as I am reading Hall's fantastic work now, I can only say "Thanks" 

How can I best support what you are doing?  Just let me know. 

Thanks again, take care and peace to you always,

Dear Andy,
Just a short note to let you know how much of a blessing your information (your hard work in studying, researching
and sharing with us) means to me.  I, too, have been searching.  I will understand the Bible much better. 
You made my day.

Secrets of the Sphinx is a consciousness changing book. It put me into a huge  "growth period"
as we would experience in my psychic reading days.
I am also very interested in meeting you.
Thanks and much appreciation for your enlightenment.

Hi Andi,
I've read your book two times already, really cool. Thank you again.

Hi, I haven't read you book yet, but I have read everything on your web site.  I am fascinated in what
I have read.  I am only 15, but I have studied spirituality, mythology, religon, astrology, and a bunch
of other stuff.  Lately, I have been trying to study all of the different religions basis on the end of the world. 
The Mayans with their 2012, the christians with their "Mark of the Beast."  It all fascinates me.  I just
want to say that I think of you as a brilliant man, and I wish you luck with the rest of your life.
I have been spell-bound by the little information I've read so far on your web page regarding your book "Secrets of the Sphinx..." 
I rushing to the bookstore and purchasing it today! Your information seemed to have filled a void in my soul and spirit and I have
yet to read the first page!  I look forward to corresponding with you after I have read what seems to be a truly wonderful and inspirational book. 

I recently finished reading your book and found it quite interesting.
Lots of new ideas I've never thought of before.
Thought you might be interested to know about another error I found;
you'll want to fix it in your new edition.  On page 27, you mention the
Phoenician goddess 'Astarie'.  I believe the correct spelling is
'Astarte' with two t's.

Thank you for being here at this time.
I was just searching for Planetary Alignments on this day of the southern
Spring Equinox, and I was pleased to connect with information that
reinforced, from another's point of view, the information that had been
coming to me, linking sphinxes, pyramids, relationships and galactic
When I understand more, I'll be happy to share with you.
Hello, Andy;
My name is Ed XXXX.  I live in Arizona.  I found your website a
couple of weeks ago and immediately ordered your book from a local book
store.  I received the book yesterday and will finish it today.  But I could
no longer keep myself from contacting you.  I find your book very exciting.

I am especially excited by your understanding of the mystical nature of the
english (anglican, angelic) language.  I believe the english language was
delivered to man in the end of the Picean age for the express purpose of
revealing the true nature of man to man. 
I read your book while relaxing pool-side at the hotel the last two days.
 One of the young bar maid beauties inquired about the book and was intrigued
with what I was able to share.  She said she was anxious to get the book and
made some notes on her napkin.  I really enjoyed your book.  I plan on
reading it again and sharing it with my kids and some friends. I also feel inclined to
re-read "Skinny Legs and All" because of your reference to the dance of the
seven veils. 
   I don't know what it all means, but I believe everything happens for a
purpose - so you and your ideas are now part of the tapestry of my life and I
am grateful to have had the good fortune to cross paths with you.

I have just stumbled upon your web site and I really found it
It called to my attention that what goes on in one part of the
globe affects another part, sooner or later. I think that unity is
the key element needed in order for the cancer that humanity is
inflicted with to be cured.
Like a human body, the cells (individuals) of mankind must work
together in a unified manner or else cancer or other illesses may result.
Wow, man!  Your page is really cool.  Where do I start?  I'm a young
Aquarius looking forward to the gradual onset of the Seventh Age with
excited anticipation and wonder.  Since childhood I have constantly sought
the truth of life, the answers to human existence; and much of what you
wrote in your little biography resonated...  I've always been fascinated by
these higher, mysterious realms of thought - religion, philosophy,
mythology, astrology, egyptology, especially the wisdom which I've always
intuitively believed ancient cultures possessed.
Hey Andy
Had a great tour of the road to Hana with you. Someone told me to
Google for the year 2012 having to do with the Mayan Long Count Calendar.
Reminded me of your discussions.
Have a great day.

Hi Andy!
Last week my dear friend Karyna XXXX recommended your book to me. Although I've been to Egypt, last
night is the first time I've ever dreamt of a Sphinx (By the way, it was living)!  So, this morning, I figured
I better read your book!!!  Thank-you so much for your generosity of Spirit!!!
Your kindness is greatly appreciated
God/Goddess Bless You, and have a very happy 'Vernal' New Year!
Love & Light Andrea


I finished your book and am impressed with your scope of topic coverage. Your Great Year examination is a most intriguing
subject and while I was reading it, I remembered reading about the Mayan 2012 mythology, that concerns their calendar
system ending in the year 2012. Doomsday sayers proclaim, this is the true end of days date, others proclaim that 2012
signifies the end of 1 cycle of the Mayan cosmological calendar for earth.

Andy, I just stumbled onto your web page for the first time today!  It was
sooooo nice!
Have you ever picked up a book and experienced such a connection to its
message and author that you knew with out any doubt what was written in it
before you turned the pages?  Every now and then this will happen to me.
And today, when I came across your web page...it has happened again!
I felt this overwhelming connection to you immediately!  Almost as if you
are a long lost twin, (an inner twin version of myself, if there could be
such a phenomenon!)  Sounds corny, but true!  It gave me a whole new
meaning to "Dejevu"! 
Thank you so much for all of the great information that you are providing!
 I went to your webpage and was reading in your book. Lots of fun to read that! I liked "live/evil, lived/devil"
and the yin/yang +/- relationships throughout. All quite true. The wabble period of 25,800 years is actually
a variable that is never 25,800. It only approximates that number if you average it, but you probably know that.
If you were to put a pencil lead on the end of a long stick that points through the earth's axis and goes out to
the edge of our galaxy to draw on, the wabble pointer would draw something that looked like an irregular
gear, each tooth different.
I see how you keep the book fun to read, and in that subject, that isn't easy. Craig

I had read some of your stuff amongst many other works and find yours can be conveyed
to interested parties on a forum where we think we have found a pattern in weather cycles etc...
I am finding it very difficult with my not so good grammatical skills at expressing the workings
of the celestial timings of the Grand Year etc.. And therefore am asking permission if I can quote
some of the text from your chapters of "Secrets of the Sphinx" on a forum.
