ISS, Antares, Virginia, Virgin, Isis and the wrath of the goddess with a thousand names?

by 5ocietyx

Earlier this week a rocket named ‘Antares’ on its way to ISS exploded upon liftoff above Virginia.

Earlier today the Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo exploded above the Mojave desert in California.

In ancient Egypt, Antares represented the scorpion goddess Serket and was the symbol of Isis (the virgin of the world)  in the pyramidal ceremonials.

Wreckage from the Virgin Galactic spacecraft

Are these incidents just random accidents in the conquest of space or is there more than meets the eye? Sabotage? The wrath of the goddess of a thousand names considering how Isis has become associated with the demonic Islamic State of Iraq and Syria?

That this latest crash occurred on Halloween when the veil between world’s is thinner only deepens the mystery.

So who’s to say at this stage but we will be posting updates as and when additional information and synchromystical analysis becomes available.

Andred, Ancient Goddess of the Druids?

by 5ocietyx

boudica

Andred is a little-known goddess of the pre-Roman British isles, whom the Romans referred to as Andraste. It was said by Roman historian Dio that she was invoked by Boudica before the Iceni rebellion of 60AD.

Boudica’s speech, taken from Roman History, by Cassius Dio:

Let us, therefore, go against them trusting boldly to good fortune. Let us show them that they are hares and foxes trying to rule over dogs and wolves.”

When she had finished speaking, she employed a species of divination, letting a hare escape from the fold of her dress; and since it ran on what they considered the auspicious side, the whole multitude shouted with pleasure, and Buduica, raising her hand toward heaven, said:

“I thank thee, Andraste, and call upon thee as woman speaking to woman; for I rule over no burden-bearing Egyptians as did Nitocris, nor over trafficking Assyrians as did Semiramis (for we have by now gained thus much learning from the Romans!),  much less over the Romans themselves as did Messalina once and afterwards Agrippina and now Nero (who, though in name a man, is in fact a woman, as is proved by his singing, lyre-playing and beautification of his person); nay, those over whom I rule are Britons, men that know not how to till the soil or ply a trade, but are thoroughly versed in the art of war and hold all things in common, even children and wives, so that the latter possess the same valour as the men.

As the queen, then, of such men and of such women, I supplicate and pray thee for victory, preservation of life, and liberty against men insolent, unjust, insatiable, impious, — if, indeed, we ought to term those people men who bathe in warm water, eat artificial dainties, drink unmixed wine, anoint themselves with myrrh, sleep on soft couches with boys for bedfellows, — boys past their prime at that, — and are slaves to a lyre-player and a poor one too.

Wherefore may this Mistress Domitia-Nero reign no longer over me or over you men; let the wench sing and lord it over Romans, for they surely deserve to be the slaves of such a woman after having submitted to her so long. But for us, Mistress, be thou alone ever our leader.”

Dio Cassius

Published in Vol. VIII of the Loeb Classical Library edition, 1925

There are very few historical mentions of Andrad other than Dio, though some researchers have made comparisons to other goddesses, such as  NikeBellona, Magna Mater (Great Mother), Cybele, and Vacuna, as they are all goddesses who ride chariots. Our own opinion is that the Andred evoked by Boudica against the Romans bears more resemblance to the Egyptian deity Sehkmet.

Sekhmet, who is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians, was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare. Sekhmet’s name comes from the Ancient Egyptian word “sekhem” which means “power”. Sekhmet’s name suits her function and means “the (one who is) powerful”. She also was given titles such as the “(One) Before Whom Evil Trembles”, “Mistress of Dread”, “Lady of Slaughter” and “She Who Mauls”. She was evoked before war and could only be satisfied with the blood of battle.

Of course, many researchers will be happy to dilute Andred down to the mother goddess, or the moon goddess, and there are enough connections to make a safe assumption like that. However, it is our belief that as the Romans – let alone modern pagans – were never privy to the secrets of the Druids, we cant just accept the Roman reports. We must question the orthodox viewpoint, which was based on Roman hatred of the older religion of the Britons.

We can see the Romans and the Druids held opposite religious beliefs. Dio states that when Boudica released a hare as a divination technique  ‘it ran on what they considered the auspicious side‘. Maybe he said this because the Britons’ auspicious side was the opposite to the Roman side. Romans would divine with birds, so if a bird flew to the left (sinistra) it was a bad omen.

Were Boudica and her people practising a left-handed religion? The Druidic tradition perhaps? And was the ‘rebellion’ of 61AD just about Boudica’s mistreatment?  The passage of time between the two events doesnt suggest so, especially when we look at the other event of the year 61, the destruction of the Druid base at Anglesey. Were Boudica, and the number of British tribes who supported her trying to make one last strike for the rebellion against the Romans, a rebellion which had been virtually non-stop since the apparent Roman ‘invasion’? It couldnt have escaped Boudica’s attention that the Druids – the highest spiritual authority bar none in pre-Roman Europe – were about to be destroyed forever. As a result of the Iceni rebellion the Roman forces were drawn away from Anglesey, did this allow some Druids to escape and go into hiding?

A curious reference comes from the Anglo-Saxons. A beautiful ancient forested area in the English county of Sussex known as ‘The Weald’ had by Anglo-Saxon times retained the name Andredes weald, meaning “the forest of Andred”.

Andred's forest

Could this forest have been a sacred grove of the Druidic goddess Andred? Interestingly, the Weald encompasses Ashdown forest, the scene not only of the Winnie the Pooh books, written by British Intellience asset AA Milne, but also of the infamous Druidic ritual of WWII, where Crowley, Flemming, Churchill et al gathered to repel the German forces.

The Goddess Sichun, Goddess Peak, Wu Mountain, China

by 5ocietyx

The Goddess Sichuan

“Goddess Sichun”, a granite peak located in the northeast of the Nanqingyuan Scenic Spot 1180 meters above the sea level, is the landmark sight of Mount Sanqingshan, 86 meters in overall height. The whole peak looks like the silhouette of a maid with shoulder-length hair. For millions of years, “the Goddess” sits gracefully among the mountains, gazing silently at the bustling world with a serene expression. Legend has it that the Goddess is the 23rd daughter of Queen Mother of the West, named Yaoji. She is regarded as the incarnation of spring, hence the name “Goddess Sichun” (literally, meaning spring).

The Isis, Ostara and 15.15 alpha-numeric geo-temporal transposition cryptogram

by 5ocietyx

Isis 1515

ISIS 1515 cryptogram

Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ who is the son – the light of the world – the sun. In pagan times the goddess Ēostre or Ostara was worshipped during the Spring Equinox. Ostara is another facet of the Lady with 10,000 names – Isis.

The letter I can be transposed to the number 1 and the same with the letter S and number 5 as the 5ociety has already illustrated.  So ISIS becomes 1515 or quarter past three in the afternoon.

Both hands of the clock point due east at this time. The word ‘east’ means ‘shine’ or ‘dawn’ as this is the direction the sun rises each morning.

Ēostre derives from Proto-Germanic *Austrō, ultimately from a PIE root *h₂ewes- (→ *awes-), “to shine”, and therefore closely related to a reconstructed name of *h₂ewsṓs, the dawn goddess, which would account for Greek “Eos”, Roman “Aurora”, and Indian “Ushas”.[1] The modern English term “Easter” is the direct continuation of Old English Ēastre, whose role as a goddess is attested solely by Bede in the 8th century

The Moonwalk of the Callanish Stones

by 5ocietyx

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones are situated near the village of Callanish on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

It is probable that Callanish (or Calanais) – which comprises two other stone circles in addition to the main site – was built some 5,000 years ago as a lunar calendar. The path of the moon, unlike the reliably annual tracks of the sun, only returns to the same point once every 18.6 years. Callanish plots this slow progress, building to a crescendo in the 19th year at the lunar standstill – when the path of the moon is so low that it seems to walk along the horizon before setting within the stone circle.

Callanish’s mystery to the expectant crowd is not merely in the stones, but in their setting within a sacred landscape. To the south-west of the stones is a low, undulating hill known to the local people in Gaelic as Cailleach na Mointeach – the old woman of the moors, or Sleeping Beauty as she is more affectionately known. The contours look irresistibly like a reclining woman. At the lunar standstill the moon rises from behind this hill, tip-toes across her supine body and sets four hours later behind the Clisham, another sacred hill.

This moonwalk will happen throughout the summer once a month until September, and will draw hundreds for a number of reasons. Some people come to worship the full moon, others to witness the goddess walking the earth. All come in expectation of a spiritual experience and to feel the energy of the planet.

The lost gardens of Heligan

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Heligan (“The Willows” in Cornish) is first mentioned in the twelfth century. At that time it appears to have been part of an estate owned by the Arundell family. At some point later it transferred to the Hill family who sold the entire estate to Sampson Tremayne who, like his brother John, had moved from Devon in the mid C l6th. From this point there were two main branches of the family, the Devonian branch and the Cornish. The Devon branch were based at the magnificent Sydenham house near Lewdown and at Collacombe near Lamerton. Source

The ‘giants’ of Heligan resonate with Northumberlandia, the recently completed earth sculpture of a goddess.

Venus Rosewater Dish

by 5ocietyx

Venus Rosewater Dish

The Venus Rosewater Dish isn’t named after Venus Rosewater nor Venus Williams. It got its name because the goddess Venus is featured on it and it is a dish that holds rosewater. It was custom for royalty and the nobility to have rosewater poured over their hands before meals and the dish caught the drops.

As the British Museum Project explains

The trophy is actually named after the goddess of love Venus who is depicted on the dish along with Sophrosyne and the goddess Minerva. Venus represents love and sexual desire, Sophrosyne represents the spirit of moderation and temperance, and Minerva which was the goddess of poetry, wisdom, medicine and crafts.

Around the rim Minerva presides over the seven liberal arts: grammar, logic, rhetoric, arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy.

Eris

by 5ocietyx

Eris

Eris (Ancient Greek: Ἔρις, “Strife”) is the Greek goddess of strife and discord, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. Her Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia. Homer equated her with the war-goddess Enyo, whose Roman counterpart is Bellona. The dwarf planet Eris is named after the goddess, as is the religion Discordianism.
