The Divergent Series – secretsoftheserpent

 

The Divergent Series are three films based on the Divergent novels by Veronica Roth. I love this series because is shows just how divided this world is. These division don’t just happen, they are created. In the story it is factions, but in our world they give people what ever you want to make them feel like they are different from all the rest. When in actuality they are just falling into a created mold that was invented to control them or make money. This story is symbolic on so many levels. Like all great stories, it is the story of you and enlightenment. But this story is revealing truths of today’s world.

I find it interesting how movies like this always take place after a previous global war. It could just be symbolizing that we are a warring race, but I think they are pointing to the war of the gods. This is the war that no one is supposed to know about. They just tell you an ice age happened, so there is no need to look back any further(See Lemurian Magic). They can keep their ice age, true history is way more interesting. […]

The Ankh ~ secretsoftheserpent

ankhrelief

The Ankh is one of the most well-known and widely used symbols of ancient Egypt. It is in their myths, hieroglyphs, texts and art. What is the Ankh symbolizing? Mainstream ideas are “life”, “breath of life”, or “death and resurrection”. As you will see, they are all way off base. The Ankh has to do with you, your higher self to be exact.

The Ankh is pure Egyptian. It is found in different civilizations, but only because they originated from Egypt. The Christians stole the symbol and used it for their cross. If you understand the true meaning of the christ, you will see why they stole the symbol. Who the hell would worship the symbol that killed their god or prophet? You don’t see Hindus worshipping an arrow. The arrow being what killed Krishna. Mohammed was killed by a wild boar and is the reason why muslims will not eat ham. So why do christians venerate the cross? Christianity is Egyptian and the cross is just a stylized Ankh. […]

Crystal of the Week: Apophyllite – Holistic Experiment

Apophyllite is a great stone for Reiki healers because it takes the patient into a deeper receptiveness. It also helps move the healer’s ego aside so that transmission of healing energy is purer.

This stone is especially helpful in healing the Spirit and helps abandon pretenses and breaks down reserve, bringing recognition of one’s true Self. It stimulates the pineal gland, which helps one open up to spiritual awakening by infusing the body with high-vibration energy.

The 13th Moon – Elder Mountain Dreaming

Monthly Lunar Work-Study with Phoenix of Elder Mountain –

Welcome to the 13th Moon which ends our seasonal year Spiritual Dreamers, Moon People, Healers, Artists, Mystics and Magical Folk. Over the decades I have learned and practiced so much within the healing and spiritual realms of the emotional body, the soul bodies, the dreaming bodies, and the projection and irritations of emotional reality. Seeing, feeling and responding to this very natural seasonal process of lunation cycles within that, lead me to learn, then respect and lastly respond with great dedication of each new moon.

We begin our 13th moon of the year, in the sign of Pisces, starting Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 6:58 am PST at 80 – along with the Solar Eclipse who heralds in the seasonal shift. I generally ask all of you to begin to notice and pay attention to your signs and synchronicity 2-3 days before the new moon and your nights dreaming. These gives you an indication of the personal flavor and setting of the stage of your whole moon cycle you will walk …

“The year about to end and it is like a Snake
   creeping in a field. You have no sooner
seen it,
than it has already half disappeared.
   It is gone and it’s troubles have gone with it.
   It could be worse if you catch it by its tail,
   why bother to try – when it will do you no good.”

(Poem by Su Tung P’o – 1036 ce,
translated by Kenneth Rexroth)

Astrorisa Mini Moon Blast – February Pisces New Moon 2017

Written by Iya Olusoga ~ Bisi Ade For Astrorisa Moon Forecaster
February 26, 2017
Solar Eclipse
Pisces New Moon 8° at 9:59 AM EST 
in House 11
Pisces Sun 8°, in House 11
 

Planetary Energies
 Moon (Osupa / Yemoja), Sun (Orun), Mercury (Esu-Elegbara), Mars (Ogun), Saturn (Obaluaiye), Uranus (Sango), Pluto (Oya), and Neptune (Olokun).
Pisces 8° the archetype of Olokun:
This degree encourages and supports one reaching their goals, dream, and desires. This is a quiet, reflective vibration, it is very spiritually keen, yet challenges us to complete the work of  those things we don’t necessarily care for. What one should be mindful of with this degree, is to avoid getting emotionally lost in our desires and our success. One must balance their heart and head.
The influence of this solar eclipse energy can last approximately 3 months or more.
 
 
New Moon Themes: 
 
Security, New Experiences, Perseverance, Careful planning, Financial Gains and Desires, Unexpected Gains. Harmony, Family, Emotional and Spiritual development, Relationships, Contracts, Moderation, and Balance. Arguments, Disputes, Health, Illness, and Recovery.
New Moon in Pisces, an annular Solar Eclipse, brings many forms of changes and transformations. It heightens the feelings of determination in the areas of self care, self love, financial independence, and it brings an attention to detail regarding one’s health. A high octave Piscean moon, brings family and loved ones together. There’s a desire to connect and to serve, but service operates from the 11th house. And that service concentrates on the greater good of all who are involved. So when we are operating from a Piscean 8 degree in 11th house influenced emotion, we’re helping one individual clearly knowing that when they get stronger, then they are able to help others… The feminine energy of Olokun (Pisces) rules this moon time. It’s the Ancient Mother influence speaking to and through our collective consciousness, causing us to step back and to rethink how  we’ve been handling our lives, goals, and desires. We can more effectively intuit and sense what is better for us now. Some of us will be able to move out of our heads, to be less cerebral, and connect to the basic foundations of things. Becoming more grounded during this moon occurs because Neptune, Olokun’s planet is now in its pre-retrograde shadow time. So what was murky and eluded us, begins to get covered, 2 negatives creating  a positive.
Have a Universally Loved, and Self Honoring New Moon Time!

Sekhmet – secretsoftheserpent

8d1a20a51ce9d2a1664fbfb413b556d7

Sekhmet is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities. She is very closely associated with Hathor. Her name is derived from “sekhem’ and it means power or might. Sekhmet is often translated as “She who is powerful”. The Egyptian texts show that Sekhmet had good and bad aspects. What makes Sekhmet very interesting to me is that some scribes stole a story about her in an ancient Egyptian text and put it in the bible.

If you are familiar with my work, you know that all Goddesses are nature or an aspect of nature. This is why she has good and bad aspects. Nature is beautiful, but can also be destructive. To understand who she really is you have to know the true history of this world. In Lemurian Magic I showed you the war of the gods. Mother Nature having enough of this war caused the earth to spin uncontrollably and move out of it’s orbit. When the disaster was over Egypt and other civilizations were settled. The pyramids and sphinx were built at this time with the remaining technology. This happened at about 11000 BCE. When the earth had calmed down and stabilized the sun was rising between Virgo and Leo. The sphinx was built at this time and had the head of a goddess(Virgo) and the body of a lion(Leo). Egypt was going to be a matriarch.  If you didn’t want to obey by these rules, you could go somewhere else. This is why Sumer was a patriarch.

Sekhmet is the goddess of the age of Leo. The lion became a symbol in Sumer for the sun, but it also was a symbol of kingship. The lioness became the goddess Sekhmet in Egypt and this was a perfect symbol for Egypt.  Lions, like all nature, are a matriarch. The females hunt at night and this makes the lioness a symbol of the moon. If you have read my God(s) post you know the Egyptians venerated the moon most of all. The Pharaohs used her as a symbol of war because lioness are hunters and the power of nature is awesome. The lion has become the symbol of Judah, specifically the line of David and Jesus. The lioness also became the symbol of the female bloodline in Egypt. The Talmud refers to Mary as the lioness of god. So basically both of these are showing the royal bloodline from Egypt.

Which brings me to why she is the most destructive of the goddesses. In an ancient Egyptian text, called The Destruction of Mankind, Ra(the sun) is angry at mankind for not preserving balance and justice(Maat).   The vengeful goddess Sekhmet goes after people and the earth’s fields ran red with human blood. The people of Egypt devised a plan to pour pomegranate juice in beer to stain it blood-red. They poured the beer and red ochre into the Nile flooding the fields with blood. Sekhmet gorged on the beer and became so drunk she slept for three days. Since she is linked with the moon, sleeping for three days has to do with the new moon. The Egyptians celebrated this every year on the feast day of Hathor/Sekhmet. They drank red beer and poured red ochre in the Nile turning it blood-red. This is the story stolen by bible scribes and put in the Old Testament as one of the plagues of Egypt. All they have done is make it a vengeful male god. Just to show you how far we have come as a human race, they still do a very similar celebration in Chicago to this day.  Every year on St. Patrick’s day  people in Chicago drink green beer and turn the Chicago river bright green. Today they do not celebrate appeasing a vengeful goddess.  It is much more civilized than that.  Today they celebrate St. Patrick killing all the serpents in Ireland. The killing of the serpents was not the reptilian snake, it was the Druids. If you are familiar with my work, you know how deep the connection is between Egypt and Ireland.

Sekhmet usually has the uraeus symbol and solar disk. When she is standing she usually has the papyrus scepter. All of these are symbols of Lower Egypt. Lower Egypt was the Hyksos pharaohs and it is where all the patriarch religions come from. How does this very early goddess of Upper Egypt become part of Lower Egypt? It all goes back to the father of Tuthmoses and Akhenaton, Amenhotep III. This pharaoh was trying to keep Egypt united. He used her because she represented the moon, but had the solar disk and other Lower Egyptian symbols associated with her. She was feared in Egypt because she was the symbol of Mother Nature that brought an end to the war of the gods. The war caused the imbalance and nearly caused the extinction of the human race. Her also being a symbol of the moon tells me that the legends and myths about the moon bringing an end to the chaos are correct(See Lemurian Magic). Her sleeping for 3 days may literally mean a new moon. Did it take 3 days for people to come out of hiding once the chaos had stopped?

As I have stated before, the Hyksos pharaohs of Lower Egypt did not understand the true meaning of the gods and goddesses of Egypt. They wanted monotheism, control of the masses and females(especially young girls) to be nothing more than sex slaves. Tuthmoses and Akhenaton were Moses and Aaron in the bible(see Patriarch Pharaohs). Sekhmet is nature and sometimes she is shown seated on a throne. Seated Goddesses and Gods in Egypt symbolized fixed and embodied archetypes. Things you can not change. Certain rules cannot be broken in this fleshy existence. The patriarch scribes who wrote the bible did not understand the true meaning of the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt. They just took certain aspects of the Gods and Goddesses and used it to create their book for control. What they thought was a vengeful Goddess was actually aspects of nature, but they took this and put it on a bearded man to make money and control people. I see Sekhmet as the Goddess who will bring balance if you don’t have it, but if you have balance she will make it seem like your life is purrrrfect.
