Tonight, we enter the Winter Solstice in the sign of Capricorn. To me, this is such a beautiful time when there are unique energies at play from the “Christmas spirits” that can heal the emotional despair and suffering accrued during the previous thirteen moons, and send rejuvenation, fresh hope and inspiration for the coming turn of the calendrical Wheel.
In Earth alchemy and Arthurian legend, the longest night of midwinter, caused by the Sun reaching its furthest point away from the Earth and then returning three days later, on Christmas Day, is symbolised by the death of the Old Wounded Fisher King and the birth of the new King, otherwise known as the Radiant Child. This bursting forth into joyful and victorious rebirth was symbolised by alchemists as the Peacock’s Tail, for which, I think, the aurora borealis is the perfect sky metaphor.
A few years ago, before I wrote Reclaiming Sovereignty, you never heard the word being used. Now I hear the word “Sovereignty” being bandied around about quite a lot and usually being misused.
Sovereignty is not for the individual. It is for the tribe or the nation or however you define the territory of the land you live on. It is a gift from the spirits of the Land in return for work that the shaman does with the ancestors. It is how the shaman dreams new worlds into being. It has always been this way and so when Trump addresses the UN Assembly on the importance of Sovereignty to countries, he is using the term correctly.
Some of you may be realising by now that working in the mundane physical world against the New World Order is like fighting with shadows. That’s because the shades are being reflected from the Astral Planes, which they dominate. From there they are enacting operations that are the source of the dark effects that we see on this planet, and they mainly take the form of the evil acts against humanity that we witness all around us as they perform a huge mass sacrifice to their ‘gods’ with us as the sacrificial lambs.
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.
What did Kanye West mean when he said that Trump was “on his hero’s journey?” And who’s that woman?
If you’re feeling quite overwhelmed by the utter madness that seems to be triggering all around you ever since Trump took office in the White House, there’s a straightforward explanation once you understand about narcissism.
I took this photo today in Wells Cathedral of the carved effigy above the tomb of John Drokensford, Bishop of Bath and Wells (1309 – 1359) to show his gaping-mouthed fish headgear which is archetypical of the initiate.
