Happy Litha and Summer Solstice

secretsoftheserpent

Litha falls on the summer solstice. With the sun at it’s zenith, this is the longest day of the year. It is a celebration of the God and Goddess at the height of their power. They are the king and queen of the fertile lands and together they rule over the fertile, growing earth. Their mature love for each other ensures the success of the ripening crops. It marks the preparatory period before the harvest season at a time when the Holly King Takes over for the Oak King until Yuletide.

Tuatha De Danann

secretsoftheserpent

Most of what we know about the Tuatha De Danann is from a text called Lebor Gabala Erenn(The Book of the Taking of Ireland). Better known as The Book of Invasions. This book was written by christian monks and was put together as late as the 11th century. Here we go again with the 11th century. King Arthur legends and the Norse Eddas were all written in or around the 11th century. How foolish do the royals and religions think we are? The Tuatha De Danann were the first to Ireland and I’m about to show you why. Good thing these christian scribes didn’t really understand what they were actually writing or true history would be gone.

Taking up the Path of the Bard, Part I

The Druid's Garden

Bardic Artistic Expression through Clay, Sand, and Straw (cob)! Bardic Artistic Expression through Clay, Sand, and Straw (cob)!  (This is part of a tree piece I collaborated on at Strawbale Studio in Michigan)

A group of people sharing stories and songs by the fire. A fine pair of leather shoes. A beautiful woven garment. A tale full of twists and mystery. Finely wrought iron doors. An amazing wood carving on a stump. A marble sculpture. A wildly painted mural on a wall. A cob structure with whimsical trees and forms. A song that reaches deep within you when you hear it.  A rousing speech. Each of these, and so many others, represent the natural creative expressions of humanity. Taking up the path of the bard is one of three paths in the druid tradition (along with the work of the Ovate and the Druid). Yet, many people aren’t sure how to take up the path of the bard because…

Ukraine Vinok (вінок) Wreath Symbolism

Elder Mountain Dreaming

ukraine crown

All Slavic traditions and folk traditions include flowers, but Ukraine is much more abundant. The Ukrainian Wreath Vinok (вінок) is a crown made of wild flowers and herbs which, in traditional Ukrainian culture, is worn by maidens (those unmarried) as a pagan tradition. There are different types of wreaths: a wedding, a wreath of love, monastic, wreath of hope, devotion, separation and kupala. The wreath of love was not only for marriage ceremonies but also divorce ceremonies.

Today and in the more prominent neopaganism of Kupala, more and more wreaths are returning back before religious influence and are worn by women of all ages. The wreath dates back to the old East Slavic customs that predates Christianization of Rus which still remains a valued part of Ukrainian national creative attire, worn on festive occasions and on holy days.

Flowers are a part of all their celebrations, traditional folklore, craft…

The Sphinx Moth, Butterfly and Moth Totems

Great info!

Elder Mountain Dreaming

blue butterflyBy Phoenix of Elder Mountain –  A Great Ash Sphinx Moth visited Elder Mountain two years ago, and then I had a dream about a year ago in much detail, of the Brotherhood of the Sphinx (which doesn’t exist in the occult, magic or esoteric, nor middle ages documents when most writing was collected and done). I received some information about this ancient cult from the dreaming, so I decided to write about the symbolism (totem) of the Sphinx Moth, Butterfly and Moth today.

We have two symbols here to work with, the Sphinx and the Moth. Like its butterfly cousin, the moth shows the symbolism of transformation at various levels. How this equates to our life, is we are in a “longer” cycle of change (not a short one, month or year, but several years). I work with cycles and symbolism together and found over the decades that we…

Magical Tools From Nature

Absolutely.

The Witch & Walnut

25e4cd710dc09ff646259f5bdad468a6Welcome back! I love love love going out into nature and bringing home magical treasures. I’ve been doing this for as long as I can remember. I think as kids we all did!

But as a grown up Witch I think its safe to say we all at one time or another hit the shops and stock up. Nothing wrong with that, we deserve a little retail therapy by way of witchy products with fancy labels and shiny trinkets. Truth be told… we don’t need it. Its very easy to buy something, but try and consider things around you everyday.

When I went on nature walks with my grandmother we would come home with all sorts of things. Some we kept, some we hid and some we charged under the full moon. Her altar didn’t have fancy crystals, the few she had were gifted to her from people traveling through…

2nd Full Moon of Spring – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Source: 2nd Full Moon of Spring – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Our “Second Full Moon of Spring” begins Wed., April 10, 2017 @ 2:43 pm PDT and she sits at 20 degrees Scorpio with the Sun at 20 Taurus. Last year’s second full moon of spring was at 2 degrees Scorpio on April 20, 2016… do you remember what your sacred intention of release was last year? If not, check your dreaming-lunar journal to see how your release issue had progressed or you can start a dreaming-lunar journal with us, to see how moon cycles bring the same signs & synchronicity each moon cycle. You will be quiet surprised that the same symbols appear in each lunar unique cycle to guide you.

The harvest moon rising behind Hawksbill Crag Upper Buffalo River Wilderness - Ozark National ForestOn the full moon, we learn the practices and sacred arts of “letting go” each month, which is not an easy journey considering we live in a world of acquisition, adventure and accomplishment of mind-body. Our soul takes a back seat until crisis strikes but we rarely hear her calling or we turn away hoping her mourning dove’s song will disappear. In this moon, the river runs very deep and the beauty of the day is to sooth our soul as we all grow up and mature, regardless of what age we are.

Shamanism is one of our closest links to our soul and had evolved from the previous dreaming cultures of woman. Our soul needs no plant to give us a vision, it needs no medicines to ease emotional pain, no outside sources or forces to give false vision. What our soul does need is for you to practice the reconnect of the “embodiment” of our soul, being grounded within and healing first the emotional issues in our life which is more hidden than you can imagine, even when its right in front of you. How do you listen to the soul? Well, this moon cycle…

This Full Moon Mercury & Uranus conjunct and this is a very specific unity. The listening and communication of Mercury, aligning with the deeper levels of Uranian listening and communication and that is when magical or chaos happens. An example is today I was washing my clothes and on the last spinning cycle when I heard someone drumming outside and thought they were pretty good. I stopped for a second and wondered if it was the washing machine? So fine I got up, opened the door and no one was drumming and I stood in front of the washing machine and sure enough, the rhythms of a master drummer were coming forth. Now that is deepest listening with the soul that is clear. I don’t use my Mercury (mind) to question such realities anymore of what occurs within vibrations, I just enjoy them now.

For those struggling this month, let chaos be your teacher, to teach you to let go and learn to stop swimming ‘up stream’. Chaos if handled well, contains suffering, but does not become your destroyer, because without it destroying you, you will evolve with practice of healing, into the unity of self-empowerment, authentic humbleness, a truth-saying grounded bitch and a silent warrior of spiritual strength (eventually). Commitment to being spiritual also includes being sober and sobriety and I speak this in my work because I work with the emotional body and the soul body and that is not like mind-body.

Our Soul (the ocean) is a small part our emotional body (the river), and by the processes of emotional balance, sobriety and a continual healing of your progressions of personal fear, we enter the “healing journey” to approach our fear, not run from it or throw our hands up and give up because we don’t get what we want in our life or spiritual life.

Set your one full moon emotional release on what does not serve your highest good this moon cycle without the reward system that we should be rewarded for suffering. This is how karma is paid in one moon cycle of a Scorpio Moon.

Tower of Babel – secretsoftheserpent

Source: Tower of Babel – secretsoftheserpent

By gserpent

tower-of-babel-19-jun-091

To most researchers the Tower of Babel is used to explain how we as humans have so many languages. The demon like god of the patriarch religions did not like the human race trying to reach the heavens, so he got mad, threw a temper tantrum and made everyone speak in different languages. This way we could not understand each other and work together accomplish amazing feats.  No this god wanted us not to understand each other and fight for the rest of eternity. How does anyone believe this stuff? Now that we have the childish version out-of-the-way, let’s get on with the truth.

Most researchers think that babel comes from the hebrew ‘balal’ meaning to confuse or scatter. It is where we get english word babble. Theologians say babel comes from Babylon because that is where they think the tower was, in Babylon. Ralph Ellis has shown that babel comes from the Egyptian ‘berber’ and means pyramid. As a matter of fact he as actually shown that the real name of this Tower of Babel was Mount Shenar. Mount Shenar means snow mountain. The Great Pyramid had a limestone covering. It was pure white. They built it to look like a snow-covered mountain. The Tower of Babel was also called the watchtower. That is exactly what the Great Pyramid was, a watchtower to watch the heavens.

The Tower of Babel myth is the building of the Pyramids, but the scribes that wrote this were using ancient texts that were in their possession. They had to spin this story in their favor. If you have read my Lemurian Magic post, you know that the Pyramids were built after the cataclysm. Ancient Egypt had an Upper(matriarch) Egypt and Lower(patriarch) Egypt. Egypt was all about unifying Upper and Lower Egypt. The union of the two land was called Semai Taui or ‘tying the knot’. This is why getting married is referred to as tying the knot. If you wanted to help unite Egypt, you could stay. If not, get out. Every civilization around Egypt is Egyptian rejects. Sumer, Babylon, Judea, Greece, Rome, Arabia, and all the Mediterranean countries. None of these civilizations wanted to work together, so they left or were kicked out of Egypt. They started their own patriarch countries and languages. These countries hated Egypt for not giving them their way, but their ancestors had still helped build the Pyramids.

About the time the propaganda of the Torah or Old Testament was being written, high priests of Lower Egypt and surrounding countries that hated Upper Egypt decided the common man was not to be included in the secrets. The common man was stupid and vulgar to them. The common man had to be controlled. Several times they tried to regain Lower Egypt and instill monotheism for control of the common man, but were eventually kicked out. This just added to the hatred of Egypt and the common man. The ancient texts had to be written in a way that only certain people would understand them. The rest would take them literally and be controlled. Other scribes, like Manetho, caught on to what was happening and wrote their version of history to try to preserve the true history. But how many people have even heard of Manetho? Then you have the Nag Hammadi scrolls. The catholic church got their filthy hands on them, but good thing for us the church didn’t understand what the scribes were trying to tell.

The story of the Tower of Babel myth is the building of the Pyramids, but they had to spin the texts in their favor then destroy any evidence that said otherwise. Instead of the Pharaoh(god) kicking out all the people who didn’t want to unify and work together, they made him kick out the people who wanted to unify to make it look like he didn’t want them working together. They completely reversed history in their favor. Can’t make money off a god that wants to unite people. They used this same type method with the biblical family of Jesus. This was a matriarchal family, but they used them to create a patriarchal religion(see His Royal Jesus). The people who scattered to the outlining countries started their own languages, but this myth is code for the language of the ancient texts being used. It is code for when these scribes started confuse people with their writings. This showing that the truth had to be hidden, so that the common man could be controlled with whatever religion or government they invented. The language of these texts are impenetrable and they seem like nonsense to the common man. As truth starts to leak out I believe the bi-polar, demonic, patriarch gods will be on their way out. The so-called elites thought that their ancestors had destroyed all the evidence of the truth. They thought their texts were all that was left. If someone tried to translate them in a language the common man could read, they burnt them at the stake. What they didn’t bank on was the vulgar, common man being smart enough to dig the truth out of these stories. It is the common man that has begun to show the truth to the world.

The Great Pyramid had a walk way that ascended to the top. It was in the white limestone castings that the Lower Egyptians tore down. It was known as the Latter to Heaven or the Latter of Osiris. The Lower Egyptians decided that if they couldn’t have it, no one could have it. Then they made this Tower of Babel myth, so that anyone who knew the truth about the Great Pyramid would be punished by their demonic god. The Tower of Babel, Mount Shenar, Mount Sinai, and Mount Ararat are all the Great Pyramid.

Pied Piper – secretsoftheserpent

The Pied Piper of Hamelin is an example of just how brilliant the scribes were in preserving history. With Goethe and the Brothers Grimm involved, this myth holds some very astounding secrets. This myth is true, but it didn’t happen in the way that researchers think. It’s time to reveal the secrets of this myth that have been hiding for over 700 years.

The Pied Piper legends came out about the same time as the King Arthur legends. These legends came out  when the Crusaders brought back ancient texts from Syria and Jerusalem. The stories of these ancient texts spread through Gaul, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Scandinavia and Holland. Witty scribes got a hold of these ancient texts and preserved the history in stories of their local. The entire story of King Arthur is the story of the biblical Jesus, but they made him a King in Britain(See King Arthur). The story of the Pied Piper took place in Egypt, but the Germanic scribes placed it in Germany.

The first clue to this story is the Pied Piper shows up in a ‘coat of many colors’. This is the same thing Joseph, son of Jacob, wore in the Old Testament. In Patriarch Pharaohs, I showed that Jacob was the Lower Egyptian Pharaoh Yacobaam. He was kicked out of Egypt, but his son Joseph became a high priest to the Upper Egyptian Pharaoh. This ‘coat of many colors’ is what high priests wore in Egypt. This is telling the people ‘with eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear’ that this is an Egyptian story. It was this Upper Egyptian bloodline of Joseph’s that was kicked out of Egypt twice. The first was his father Yacobaam(Jacob) and the second was a few generations later. We know this story as the story of Moses and the Israelites.

Using rats and cats is reinforcing that this was a dispute between Upper and Lower Egypt. The Rat Goddess was Tat-Taiut, she was always portrayed wearing a disk with horns and the Uraeus. The disk is the moon and the horns are for Taurus. These were symbols of Upper Egypt. The Uraeus is the cobra symbol of Lower Egypt. She was known as the “Goddess of the two lands”(Upper and Lower Egypt). The cats are symbolizing Bast or Bastet. She was the Cat Goddess of Lower Egypt. The Lower Egyptians were the ones forcing monotheism on everyone in Egypt. They wanted to get rid of all the gods except Aton, the sun. That is why all the cats are dead in this story.

The Piper tells the Mayor he will rid the town of rats for 1,000 florins. The mayor tells him if you get rid of the rats we will happily pay 50,000 florins. In just about every version of this story the Piper is playing a flute or some just say pipe. A piper is a person who plays the bagpipes. In Egypt they had the bagpipes, they just called it a skin bag. The Piper plays his pipes and all the rats follow him. He takes them to the river and the rats are all drowned or swept away by the current. This is confirming that this story is talking about the Moses story in the bible. In the bible the Pharaoh’s army is swept away or drowned. The Piper goes to get his payment and the mayor refuses to pay him the 50,000 florins. The Piper ask for at least the 1,000 florins he wanted. The mayor gives him 50 florins and says be happy you have that. The Piper tells the mayor “you will regret breaking your promise” and he vanishes. The people are not happy with the mayor for breaking his promise, but he exclaims “We saved 50,000 florins”!

The Piper returns that night and plays his pipes. This time only the children follow him out into the streets. The children followed him  through forest and to the foot of a mountain. When the Piper came to a dark rock he played his pipes louder and a great door creaked open. The children followed the Piper into the cave. When the last child had entered the cave, the door creaked shut. A great landslide came down the mountain blocking the entrance to the cave forever. Only a little lame boy escaped this fate and he is the one that told the citizens what happened. Remember that word ‘lame’, there is a reason the Brothers Grimm used it in their version of the story.

This is exactly what the ancient texts say happened in Egypt. This is the true story the patriarch religions have been hiding. Upper and Lower Egypt were fighting about religion. The Lower Egyptians wanted one god. The Upper Egyptians said “No, we like all our gods and goddesses thank you”. The Upper Egyptians paid the Lower Egyptians to leave. They agreed on a price, but when it was time for the Lower Egyptians to go, the Upper Egyptians didn’t give them all the money. So the Lower Egyptians went through out Egypt and killed all the Upper Egyptian children. They tore up the Great Pyramid. All the white limestone came down like a land slide. They took the white limestone and used it to build things where they settled. In Judea!!!!!!! This is the story of Moses in the bible!(see Patriarch Pharaohs) Even the Koran says that because they were not paid their full amount of the money, they caused all this death and destruction. This is what the base of religion is built on. If I don’t get my way I will just kill people and destroy things!!! And we wonder why this world is so screwed up!

The name of the Pied Piper is also giving away that it is an Egyptian story. Pied means having various colors, but the scribes like using words that have more than one meaning. If you take the word pied in the mathematical sense, it refers to Pi or 3.14. The Great Pyramid was built using Pi, so this is showing yet again it is a story about Egypt and the Great Pyramid. The word lame can mean ‘crippled or physically disabled’, but it also means ‘a person who is out of touch with modern fads or trends’. The Brothers Grimm used this word for the latter meaning. Modern fad and trends has always been religion. I am the lame boy who is telling you what really happened.

One last thing that was bugging me that I finally found. Why would the scribes put this story in Hamelin? I know it was named after a Royal Saxon family, but a lot of towns were named after royalty. In a book about ancient Egyptian magic, I found that Hame means ‘great carpenters’. Lin is just what it says ‘line of or descendant of’. So Hamelin would be ‘line of the great carpenters’. Carpenters being Masons. It is why they call Jesus a carpenter in the bible.(See His Royal Jesus) Modern Masonry is from Egypt, so this is pointing once again to Egypt.
