There’s something going on with the Goddess that wants to be said, but I’m not entirely sure what yet. Want to tag along while finding out? I hope you won’t get whiplash through reading this though.


First I wanted to say that it started with one of the Quantum Compass shows, probably that of the Blue Eagle, when Davyd at one point muses about the return of the Goddess (tying it into the sun and Venus entering cancer at the solstice I think), and I was like ”mhm!” (affirmative)

But it had been rippling in my awareness for a while anyway, like these loose strands of half-processed thoughts and consciousness and feelings, like there could be something valuable and true here, but it’s still so formless you cannot really grasp it nor express it yet.


I think it really started around the middle of May and the wavespell of the red magnetic moon, Muluk. Muluk had me thinking about the effect of the moon on the waters, and, associated with that, the primordial waters. And that makes me think of the feminine.


And as I feel is often the case when you start paying attention to the Mayan Calendar, the same themes start to show up here and there in ”the outside world” as well. There was the video that Pam Gregory did with the ascended master Zac around the same time that I think many are aware of, where they talk about the divinity and the resonance of water, as well as a random tarot reader that I came across scrolling for something to watch on YouTube one night, who was talking about dispelling and transmuting the toxicity of waters. I think she read that as personal relationships, but for me it pinged for a completely different reason. Transmuting the toxicity of the waters. Healing the waters.


Around the same time I was doing my homework in Egyptian, looking for a specific hieroglyph in a digital dictionary and randomly scrolled across this hieroglyph, meaning ”well full of water”, that proved to also be firmly associated together with the female body and female genitalia. Now that I think about it, there’s also a Swedish slang word for female genitalia that sounds so vulgar, but it has been argued that it is actually derived from the ancient Swedish language (you’d call it Norse probably), meaning wet meadowlands.



Let’s cut back to the ascended master, Zac:


”Every single water way around the Earth, whether it be an ocean, a lake, a river, a stream, a pond, is all getting the same level of energy and the moon is very very instructive in this[…] because the moon at night wherever you are in the world, when night comes, is a cleansing force. […] If we can trust in the water we can give ourselves another clue to have divine magnificence coming into us with every glass of water that we drink.”


I remember how Pam Gregory leans forward in her seat, her whole self laser-focused, asking: ”Is that water receiving the imprint of the prevailing pattern at the time, and as we ingest the water this is interacting with our original birth chart blue print, is that the physical explanation of how astrology may work?”


Zac: Yes.

The water that resonates. The water that receives the blue print and manifests it into physicality and into reality. The water that enables manifestation, that is physical manifestation. The water, so associated with the feminine aspect and also with emotion.


We’ve now passed the solstice when the sun and Venus entered the sign of Cancer, which is just around the same time that St. John’s wort starts to bloom in the northern hemisphere. St. Johns wort, this powerful medicinal plant, which is so particular because the sap of this vibrant and sunny plant is dramatically blood red. As you all likely know, this plant was tied together with the birth of John the Baptist since he was supposedly born 6 months before Jesus, and St. Johns wort blooms around that very time.





I have absolutely no external resources that support this hunch, but I can’t help thinking that St. Johns wort really could be tied to the goddess and to the divine feminine rather than (or at least as much as) St. John (no offence, St. John). The plant starts to bloom just as the sun enters Cancer, cardinal water, ruled by the moon; an intrinsically feminine sign - I think Pam Gregory often refers to cancer as the ”mother of the zodiak”.


The medicine, the power of this plant, its physical signature if you will, is a deep red, which could easily make you think about menstrual blood unless you’ve worked quite hard to detach that connection. When I look at how the plant was seen historically and culturally in Sweden, deeply affected as it was by the lens of Christianity, there is no lack of connecting the plant to blood, just not that kind of blood. Rather it was tied to Christian blood mysticism, the blood of St. John after he was decapitated or the blood seeping into the ground underneath the Cross (Blodets blomma, Sara Bonadea Georg - incidentally the entire book is named after St. Johns wort, the title means the flower of blood).


I think that this could be one of those cases where traditions, places of worship or as in this case, a powerful plant, have been adopted and reused in order to fit into a Christian framework and (overly masculine) worldview, and in the process detached and disconnected it from its older (feminine) connotations in order to limit their influence and power.



I’m not saying that St. John’s wort must only be tied to the goddess or to the feminine - I think plants are much more multifaceted and fluid than us humans like to imagine, we have a tendency to get stuck in our own perceptions and export our often polarised view on gender to everything else. What I mean is that the feminine characteristics of almost anything that was deemed important and powerful, have been downplayed if not completely eradicated. Kind of like there was a tendency of literally hack away the name of Hatshepsut after her reign as a female pharaoh, or how the only female empress of the Tang Dynasty in China, Wu Zetian, was both vilified and devalued after her reign had passed. Or as if you only see the masculine nature of this multifaceted plant.


I watched the great session Davyd and Pete had on St. Johns wort after having written this previous rant, and from what I can tell it is also a good herb for women who have issues with premenstrual syndroms and painful periods as well as being a mood-enhancing support during menopause. I’m no herbalist, but the way St. Johns wort had a positive effect on the pineal gland and the endocrine system and the liver, makes me think of nettle (though nettle has a tendency to charge full speed ahead energywise, not unlike a face painted Mel Gibson in Braveheart (FREEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOM!!!) rather than calm things down like St. John’s wort).



It’s funny.  I was just aimlessly looking through the book on Egyptian cosmology ”Så tänkte de”, and incidentally came across this section on the goddess Hathor:


”Hathor is a cosmic god, involved in the birth of the cosmos and its perpetual regeneration. The cow was a symbol for the female side of the creation force and this primordial cow has many names, of which Hathor is one. The association with the cow is always present in Hathor’s iconography, even when she’s depicted as a human she still has the ears of a cow. She is so close to the creator god that she is identified with the hand of Atum that received his seed. She is the feminine aspect of the creator god himself. She is the daughter of the creative force, born in the beginning, when the land was still dark and before there were any fields. All beings were born after her. Hathor is the mother of Re. This means that she is tied to the perpetual regeneration of the creative force in the cosmos. What was said about Nut is also said about Hathor. The sun passes through her and she’s always birthing the sun to a new, rejuvenated and stronger life.

[…]

Hathor is a force of the highest level. The forces involved in the creation have a high potency, a high energy. They are both good and bad, depending on how they are handled and how they will play out. The power of Hathor has another side, that of Sekhmet, the fearsome lioness who mauls and kills her prey, the destructive and repulsive force. The speculative power of the Egyptians here is excellent. We are still in the state of absolute unity with its latent bipolarity. The force of Hathor or the mer-power (Me high-pitched: the what!?!? See my pyramid and merkaba-ramblings from June 12 for further reference) is the force that attracts and contains within the unity. For the unit to transform, for the process of change to start, the mer-force needs to momentarily break, to be interrupted. This destructive force is called Sekhmet. Thanks to Sekhmet, bipolarity can manifest and the forces can pass through the breaking point of uncreated and created, between chaos and cosmos. After this passage the mer-force manifests as the mistress (ruler) of life, joy, music, dance and love. And even of intoxication and ecstasy. Because the rush of holy ecstasy becomes a means with which to pass through the border that separates the human from the divine.


Hathor, the principle for the eternal feminine, will show up in all of the many goddesses of Egypt, but the ones closest to her were Isis, the faithful and helpful wife; the formidable and blood-thirsty Sekhmet, whose destructive power is actually a prerequisite for life, and whose roar just might turn to the purr of the delightful house-cat Bastet, the motherly Bastet who takes of her kittens, which is yet another side of the great Hathor. (p 271, Så tänkte de by Gertie Englund).


Interestingly (I think), ”Hathor was both a solar sky goddess and a goddess of the primeval sky-waters” (The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt, p 144).



Here it’s also easy to think about the Stellar nations of the Serpents, the female and male lines. The relationship between the being and the knowing. And it’s interesting, because Hathor is not only connected to the primordial cow if you will, but to serpents as well.


The Kabbalistic tree of life, as represented in the male line of the Stellar nations of the Serpents, the Chokmah and the Binah, the original couple (as described in High Magic by Francis Melville, a book that pisses me off on a regular basis but for some reason I keep reading it), the father and mother of the universe, the beginning of all polarity.


”The dynamic tension between Binah, God’s passive understanding and Chokmah, God’s active wisdom, produces the divine spark. The spark drawn by Chokmah from the divine source of Kether, is the seed of life that is received by Binah and generates all the forms in the universe


Below Chokmah on the right pillar of the tree is Chesed, the sphere of mercy and love. Chesed is the constructive and organising energy that builds the blue prints for all forms that are latent in Binah. In opposition to Chesed is Geburah on the left pillar of the tree. Geburah is the sphere of severity and strength and imposes the limitations of mortality on all living beings. Whereas Binah is the mother of all forms, Geburah is the destroyer. This may seem cruel but these limitations are an inevitable part of the deal. They mean that created forms are finite in the manifest world of time and space. This is the principle of change without which there is stasis.”  (Francis Melville, the Secrets of High Magic, p 43)

I wonder how many times these words have been uttered but MAN, I wish I’d read more mythology at university, that would have been so useful. The ability to compare creation myths now to a larger extent would have been gold.

Now, just after the solstice, we’ve entered the wavespell of the Yellow Magnetic Star, Lamat. If I remember correctly, Lamat is connected to Venus, and you could say, classical Venus themes, such as beauty, fertility, abundance, elegance and art (and ..rabbits?), though the Mayans also chose which days to enter battle based on its placement which might suggest a different dimension to Venus than we’ve become used to in western astrology perhaps.



I was also listening to the Astrology of the Week Ahead with Chani Nicholas earlier this week, speaking about the new moon in cancer coming up on Friday, July 5 (this is a summary):


On July 5th we’re having a new moon in Cancer, and it’s sweet and beneficial and wants to help us begin something in our life. The moon is sitting in Cancer, the sign that it does really well in with Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This is a new moon that is really good at nurturing something into being and the more we desire it the better the outcome will be. This new moon also has the properties of beauty and connective qualities because of Venus. Bringing things into your life, into your space, into whatever you’re trying to manifest or make happen are about beauty and connection, because why else would we do something? The conditions are good for growing anything that we want, because Cancer also is the sign of the parent, the sign of gestation, is the sign of the waters of life, it’s really about bringing life into being by giving the protective waters and nourishment that it needs in order to exist in the world.

I asked my teacher, the egyptologist what she thought the ”mer-power” was.


”I think she means love [mrt]. Because if you look at the last page, the author is speaking about love as a connecting and creative force.”


Note: the beginning two hieroglyphs of this word also constitutes the meaning "to be tied together", which is interesting when you think of Venus and her ability to attract.
