The feeding of the 5,000 at the Sermon on the Mount – decoded

This is an extract from a chapter in my next book, in which I decode the gospels to find allegories for important astrological and alchemical processes. We know the story of Jesus feeding the multitudes at his sermons on the mound with just a handful of fishes and loaves. But did you know that that…

The importance of unicorns to Sovereignty

I saw Alastair Campbell on Nigel Farage’s LBC show on Sunday, sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with the word “Reality” and haranguing Leave voters that they’re just fantasists who believe in unicorns. “Unicorn” seems to be their latest buzzword. Peter Mandelson used it again on Radio 4, this morning, as he explained that we didn’t know…

Why the Mother of All Parliaments is Sovereign

The People are Sovereign. They are intrinsically Sovereign through their connection, in their Rivers of Blood or DNA, to the Ancestors in the Otherworlds. The portals between these Worlds are opened and closed by the gatekeepers, the Fae, in cooperation with shamans that are entrusted with this sacred work on the Land. The People, in…

True Easter or Oestre – why Spring is “early” this year

Down here in Somerset, many of the birds are pairing and nesting, while the creamy curds of the May blossoms are already out on the boughs on the faery thorns. People are happily chirping away about the joys of an early Spring. However, that the season should be “early” is no random coincidence. If the…

The Near Death Experience and the Ecstasy of the Heart

We are all familiar now with the famous Tunnel from those who come back from the Realms of the Dead and recount their near death experiences. But another common factor in these accounts, and yet one that is little reported, is the overwhelmingly ecstatic feeling of love that surrounds them during their brief sojourn to…

St Cuthbert and the Spirit of Sovereignty

The magic of the Sovereignty of the Land has long been hidden from us by many means, screens and schemes, and one way of preventing us from dis-covering it has been to change the meaning of words. For instance, let us consider the word ‘history’. ‘History’ actually comes from the 12th century Norman ‘histoire’, which…

Quicksilver Messenger Service – the hidden messages in medieval and Renaissance art

Once we understand the codes in the great masterpieces preserved in the churches, abbeys and cathedrals, then it becomes clear that these symbols are a series of still-life tableaus forming a narrative about the alchemical process of the transformation of metals, with ourselves as the crude lead. Each metal is assigned a god or goddess…

Where do we go when all the stories fail?

Where do we go when all the stories fail? All the stories are failing. Fewer and fewer want to go and sit in big, draughty buildings with high ceilings – no matter how beautifully fan-vaulted – to hear them anymore. The picture below shows the purpose-made wooden pews of the 12th century church of St…

A Faery Christmas from the Vale of Avalon

To the Druids, long before Christianity, Christmas was about the Birth of the Faery Babe, or Radiant Child. This is the story that I see being played out what other people call the Glastonbury Zodiac on the Somerset Levels, a 10-mile wide circular landscape temple where the “stars have fallen to the Earth” to create…

A Winter Solstice Tale

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…

Who was Merlin really? And what does he have to do with Sovereignty?

Who was Merlin really? It’s a question I often get asked. Well, we have to go back to the 12th century, when a school of scribes was appointed by the Norman conquest to win the hearts and minds of the unruly Celts, and they reinvented Merlin from an already-existing native, mythological shaman called Myrddin Wylt.

How to Heal Narcissistic Personality Disorder – the Wounded Healer

When she was just a young girl, my mother was the first to get to her dead father who had died of a heart attack in the outside loo, and had fallen against the door. Mum was the only one small enough to be able to crawl under the door and then, with her little…

The Occult Cause of the Madonna/Whore Complex

The Roman Catholic Church has spent a lot of time arguing over whether Mary Magdalene really was a prostitute. I can tell them that she was, but that her mythic character was developed from the honoured tradition of the sacred whore whose role is vital in producing the avatar of the age. Unfortunately, though, because…

The Grail Mysteries: the real, symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail

I was keen to use this picture of a real, beautifully-gilded chalice for the cover of The Grail Mysteries because just this one image captures the totality of the symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail.

Sovereignty, Shamans and Jung

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…

The Magical Meaning of Halloween

Below is a YouTube video I made in 2015 about the magical energies that prevail and the root traditions that support us to flow with them at this special time. In short, the word Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve, named as such because it celebrates the winning of the Hallows, which are the talismans…

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…

Looney Tunes World – courtesy of the Left

In my latest book, Stories in the Stars, I break down and reinterpret the original Tuscan folktale from which Disney took his inspiration for his classic animated movie of Pinocchio. In this much older story, Pinocchio (meaning “pine-eye” or pineal gland) goes through many adventures and each one matches the trials or labours of the…

About Stories in the Stars

Stories in the Stars: What our ancestors were trying to tell us explores how ancient myths are actually the vessels or arks of our ancestors sailing the seas of Time and containing, deep in their submarinal holds, precious messages about our innate holographic relationship to eternal astrological and alchemical cycles which drive each of us…
