The trashing of the symbols of love

The painting below is of St Andrew being crucified on an X-shaped cross. The Scots will recognise the X-shape as the St Andrew’s Cross as it appears on their blue-and-white flag. But to those who understand the hidden language of alchemical love and sex magic, it is known as the saltire cross. This is why the esoteric wing of the Freemasons who call themselves the Scottish Rite and who, at one time, were largely based in Scotland, decided it would be a magically potent symbol for their flag which would help their kingdom to thrive.

So why is the X-shape so potent a symbol?

I will have to go back a bit, to explain where it comes from.

To the astrologer alchemists of what we call the Alexandrian system, which was practised during the last centuries before the Common Era, the X-shaped saltire cross represented where the ecliptic crosses the Milky Way, the starry river which the gods travel down to reach this dimension and human incarnation, and which starts between Gemini and Taurus. The gods sail down the river of the Milky Way (note the ship in the background of the painting) to be ultimately born into a human body at the point between Scorpio and Sagittarius. There’s much more about this in my book, Stories in the Stars, and here is an illustration from there showing what I mean.

Given its connection to birth and incarnation, the saltire cross is a symbol that speaks to the subconscious of a promise of love and fertility, and that is also why, in my book The Bright World of the Gods, I have my couple make love under the stars of the Milky Way.

So that is true meaning of the X or x that we use to send each other kisses. It is the saltire cross.

The heart shape is shorthand for the Vesica Piscis which represents the same thing, but in the form of the Sacred Marriage, otherwise known as “sex magic” in which the energetic serpents are fired to rise up from the perineum to reach the chalice or Holy Grail of the hypothalamus. There, they secrete the Red and White serpentine drops on to the pineal gland to cause an explosion of nectarous light that brings enlightenment and wisdom.

I’ve written in much more detail about the Sacred Marriage, and how to perform those sex rites, in my book Reclaiming Sovereignty, in which I explain that this process of love-making is an alchemical operation, and thus is also known in occult lore as the Alchemical Marriage.

And so this brings me to the trashing and debasing of these precious symbols – the X and the heart – that are the components of the secret language of serpent love.  And it is do with how you perform this love magic, to raise the energetic serpents. As with any alchemical process, you need a container to hold the “mixture” (the magnetic energies of you and your partner). So how do you build that alchemical container? It is with absolute trust and exclusivity between the loving couple, which you can help to construct through the exchange of occult symbols like the X and hearts – symbols that speak to the “deeps”, the subconscious mind. When you send those symbols to a member of the opposite sex, they register them in the subconscious as a promise of love, sex and fertility even though their conscious mind often doesn’t realise it. That’s why when you send your lover a red heart on a card for Valentine’s Day, she is thrilled. If you sent a similar card with a red heart to all her neighbours, she wouldn’t be so thrilled. Quite the reverse.

I think this vital language has been largely corrupted on social media and that we are destroying it out of ignorance. If you think about it, before the advent of Facebook and Instagram, we probably wouldn’t have even dreamt of sending crosses and hearts to a member of the opposite sex unless they were our lover. However, on social media, we seem to feel it’s OK to rush round hearting and kissing everyone, willy nilly (no pun intended!) and telling people we’ve never actually met that we love them. At the very least, to my understanding, this unconscious practise is debasing the value of the currency of the language of love and at its worst, it’s causing no end of confusion in the subconscious mind of the recipient.

So I tend not to put crosses and hearts in communications with friends of the opposite gender because I have this understanding about the importance and value of language and symbols and how they can be mobilised to create certain outcomes. I learned some of it working as a copywriter in advertising; maybe you could start to notice, if you haven’t already, how often hearts and the word ‘love’ are used nowadays to get you to buy stuff you don’t need. I learned a lot more, though, from my spirit guides and they have led me to find it in the art and architecture of old churches, much of which has been preserved by the esoteric wing of the Freemasons.

I sometimes do send kisses and hearts to my own sex, the women, because I feel that is safe. I think sending a heart to a member of my own sex is like sending her a fluffy kitten. But I don’t send them to the opposite sex because I know how their subconscious minds will read it, whether they’re aware of it or not. And like the seven-eighths of the iceberg that lies beneath the surface of the sea, our subconscious mind is a much more powerful driver of the direction of our lives than our conscious mind. Like John Lennon sang: “Life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans.”


Annie Dieu-Le-Veut is a shaman and story archaeologist who digs up the originals of these epic tales that were drawn in the glittering night skies of the last Ice Age. She brushes them off and then breaks down their meanings in the simplest of terms, so that we can unlock the doors of our perception with their metaphorical keys.

Once we understand the substance of the messages our ancestors left for us thousands of years ago, we realise the value and meaning of human life and finally know what to do with it.
