Baphomet, Behemoth, Capricorn and traffic to my astrology blog

A long time ago I used to do SEO for living and I maintained a blog. That was how I started to kind of like the hectic vibes of the web. I’m also an Aquarius moon with Aries rising so it’s reasonable for me, astrologically, to relate to such an intense virtual surrounding. Anyways, with this new astrology blog, I have now a good reason to go back to my old SEO habits. These, for those of you who are not maintaining a blog or a website, are:

1. Checking your stats every 5 hours – to see how much traffic you have on your site and where do they all come from, wondering where do all astrology fans hang out online.

2. Checking the inlinks to your site and try to figure why all the other links you have worked on were ignored by Google.

3. Generally, spending much more time than reasonable trying to understand Google, taken it is not a real person that you like.

4. Trying to make up astrology content, more content and some more astrology content, using your everyday experiences with astrology and doing readings atc.,  cause Content is the king.

5. Creating banners to make the content look less boring

6. and so on.

But the idea of this post was to tell you guys what people search for when they find my blog on the web and click it, cause that was a weird discovery. Turns out, that my astrology blog is mainly identified with Capricorn, according to Google. The most common terms people look up when they get to my blog are Capricorn and Saturn related terms, such as Capricorn in 7th house, Saturn in Scorpio (have no idea why, I have never written anything about Capricorn in scorpio) – but also Bephomet. Apparently there is such a thing and you can even find it in my blog. So what is Baphomet? according to the Hebrew Wikipedia it is a goat-like creature and another name for the devil, which is probably a misspelling of prophet Muhammad name. I tried to pronounce Baphomet and Muhammad and to be honest it doesn’t sound quite the same so i came up with another theory: it came from Behemoth. To those of you who are still with me now, things are getting complicated and the plot thickens… Capricorn is related to Bephomet because of a weird historical circumstances that linked between this name and a 19th century drawing of a goat-like creature, made by Eliphas Levi, a french occultist, which is a mystical character by himself.

As some of you may have noticed, the symbol in which Levi had drawn himself is the Magen David, which was confused and still is sometimes with the symbol I use as my blog logo. The name of the picture of my logo is bephomet or baphomet, and that is why people get to my blog when searching this term. The link that I came up with, between Baphomet and Behemoth, is based on similar historical circumstances that connected between Satan, the Devil and Behemoth,which is a biblical name for hippo, mentioned in Job 40. Some external books and other sources have connected between the creature mentioned in Job 40 and some capricorn-like creature related to occultism and paganic Satan worship. That is why I believe Baphomet or Bephomet and Behemoth are actually the same thing.

And what is the connection between Capricorn and all that? well, remind you that signs were created in middle ages, by marginal groups such as Islamic and Jews in Europe. Historically, it was a time of lots of pagan activity and flourish of pagan mysticism and occultism, made also by marginal, though other, groups. The result is a mix up between symbols, names and meanings. Astrology, of all occult practices, have survived and with it the symbol of the goat which is half a fish half a goat, certainly a mythical creature.

I guess drawing a chart for my blog could have solved all the mystery and show the Capricornian influences it has…  those that show themselves in hidden ways. actually Im going to check this thing right now and come back later with some updates.
