Going into the Age of Aquarius

secretsoftheserpent

There is always a time when the old becomes outdated or just doesn’t work anymore.  That which was either forced upon people or propagated on the people is being outgrown.  A new horizon opens up.  Most people will be fearful of the changes coming.  They will fight to keep the old.  They don’t want to let it go.  I’m not talking about something like styles that change over time or political changes.   I’m talking about a true awakening change that will change the world forever.  The magnitude so strong that it will change the very core of the human race.  This change began within the last century and is getting stronger every passing day.  Whether a ruler, political figure or anyone else does not agree, they can not stop it.  It is written in the stars.  Literally.

Aphrodite, Venus, Ishtar, Inanna and Astarte birthed the original Wicked Step-Mother, Evil Mother and Dark Grandmother

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – I am a goddess lover, honoring the goddesses for as long as I can remember. Doing ceremony, prayer and facilitating goddess circles since the early 90s. As I get older, having had a debt to Venus (conjunct my Chiron), it was important to pay homage and respect to the goddess this lifetime. I completed that forty year journey and still honor Venus to this day.

Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess of: Love, Beauty, Youth, Pleasure, and Procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus (signs Taurus and Libra), which is named after the Roman goddess Venus, with whom Aphrodite was extensively syncretized. Aphrodite’s major symbols include Myrtles, Roses, Doves, Sparrows, and Swans.

The cult of Aphrodite was large, and derived from that of the Phoenician Goddess Astarte, a cognate of the Eastern Semitic goddess Ishtar, whose cult was based on the Sumerian…

Religion

secretsoftheserpent

Lets take a look at the definition of Religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny, the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a god or gods, a pursuit of a belief or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. I just summarize it by saying it is anything outside of you that you let control your mind.  Those of you who know me know I am not against being spiritual.  Spirituality is figuring out the truth of reality and trying to grasp it.  Trying to find the truth of the universe, nature and ourselves and bringing it all together.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

secretsoftheserpent

Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have as much symbolism as The Force Awakens, but the symbolism it has goes much deeper.  It is showing the transaction that is happening in our world right now.  The dying off of the old patriarch ways and the beginning of the new sacred feminine.   If you have not seen the movie I am giving you a spoiler alert.  I will show what happens, so if you don’t want to know the ending, see the movie first.

Happy Mother’s Day

secretsoftheserpent

First, I would like to take the time to say Happy Mother’s Day to my readers.  I hope that today will be a day that you find how much power you really have.  If it wasn’t for our mothers, there really would be no human race.  So take time to give your mom a hug today and thank her for all she has done.  Most think Mother’s day is a United States invention.  Well the capitalist version you see today is, but Mother’s day was held in many ancient societies and goes all the way back to….you guessed it, Ancient Egypt.

Diary of a Land Healer: March/April

Mid-March - Crocus in the Snow Mid-March – Crocus in the Snow

The landscape waits, with bated breath, for the warmth to finally arrive. The last two months have been unseasonably cold, and the longer that time passes, more anticipation is present in the air. The plants and buds swell, but are unwilling to come out while the temperatures still go into the teens at night. At Imbolc, Punxsutawney Phil, our local divination oracle, predicted six weeks of winter, but in truth, winter has turned from 6 weeks more, to 12 weeks more, and now almost to 18. Just two days ago, the weather broke, and it seems that spring is finally in the air. Here at the homestead, we are all growing weary. Each morning, my cat Acorn runs to the door, ready to go outside and explore.  When I open the door for her, a breath of cold air hits her face and…

Dziewanna – Spring and Summer Goddess

by Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – The Goddess as Mother Earth is my relationship in the Slavic traditions of Marzanna and Dziewanna (pronounced gee-wanna). These are seasonal and oppositional Sisters or Twins that carry a “wholeness” of the entire yearly season divided into the thirteen moons: Spring/Summer is ruled by Dziewanna and Autumn/Winter is ruled by Marzanna. Each of the two rule the two seasons that are six moons (months) long. All their rituals were once lead by the mature adult woman and the grandmothers.

There is not much historical writings of Dziewanna and Marzanna, but there still are a few simplified rituals in Slavic countries and Poland that have survived. Dziewanna means the plant Mullein in Polish, a goddess of spring and summer herbs, healing and healing ceremony. The plant is used for any respiratory ailments including colds, flu, asthma, lung diseases or illnesses that prevents the breath of life…

Serpents

secretsoftheserpent

The Serpent is my favorite symbol of the ancient world. I have been asked why I haven’t made a Serpent post yet. The simple answer is because I mention the Serpent in several posts. The Serpent has to do with wisdom and because of that people associate the Serpent with the Divine Feminine. As you will see, wisdom is feminine, but the Serpent is the both masculine and feminine working together.
