Numbers One, Two and Three; duality and feminine aspect; Black Madonna; the Mother and Lucifer
“The Kojiki (Chronical of the Anciens Dits) explains that the sun goddess, Amateratsu Omokami, angry against her brother Suano No Mikoto, that she found too violent, sought refuge in a cave, and thus buried herself in the world of darkness. The other gods then used a magical stratagem consisting of dancing and chanting, then presenting a mirror in front of the opening of the cave. Intrigued, the goddess slightly opened the Door of the Rock, saw herself in the mirror and came out to understand what was this light. This is how the Heavens and the Earth were once more brought to light.” Dragon Ritual, p 320.

Before going into this subject, let us review again the concept of the origin. When the Divinity or Infinite Consciousness is in a state of rest or inaction, a closed circle symbolizes it with no dot in the center, or as a zero. In this case, the Infinite Consciousness is asexual. The author, often confronted with the outraged comments of female listeners, is happy to note that the word Consciousness in French, Italian and Spanish is feminine. This balances the masculine gender attributed to the word God in many languages. (Would this imply the idea of an un-conscious God? Smile.) This is a good reason to prefer the neutral gender utilized for the word God in English and for Consciousness in German!
When the Infinite Consciousness comes out of its latent state and starts thinking, emitting its will, it becomes the 1 or Monad. The number one is the initiator, the leader, the beginning, the trigger. It has a male polarity that represents the impetus, the might that gives birth to the whole. It is the number that corresponds to the maximum of Yang energy. It is the symbol for the Father.
Plato considers the Monad as the origin, still virgin of imprints, that has not yet started its development. According to Plato, the One has to be differentiated from all other numbers; all these numbers are born from the Monad by dieresis. Symbolic of Numbers, 74.
In fact, the One is the initiator of a process, of a movement, that only has a brief and relative existence. This is so because at the moment when it decides to exist in time-space, it splits and engenders the number two.
This is summarized as such:
God (1) is the number of numbers
The Verb that created Heaven and Earth
The male and the female
One is God (1) that has lived forever
God is the unique one to reproduce ad infinitum
Multiplying itself 1×1=1
And dividing itself 1:1=1. Symbolic of the Numbers, Text from George Jouven, Hidden Numbers, 78.
The One does not represent the concept of God, with a capital G, or Infinite Consciousness, but more precisely the creative principle that enters into action. It symbolizes the decision or impulse of the Divine, the Conscious decision, to express itself. The Two allows the expression to manifest, giving it a seat in space-time. This idea will be developed in the chapter King.
The One contains the idea of intent, of will. The Supreme Intelligence makes the decision to create or to move in a certain direction. An act of Will is then at the origin of all creation. In Hebrew, the One corresponds to the letter Aleph that signifies Head, bull head or bull. Aleph is associated with the element air.
The bull is present in all mythologies and embodies the energy of materialization, of the fecundate power or manifested god. For the Phoenicians and the Semites, the god El was honored under the name Bull-El/Baal. The god himself was not identified as a bull, but was often represented as a bull. In Egypt, Apis, the sacred bull, was the incarnation of the god Ptah. In Persia, the first man, Gayomart, and the bull, Gosh, were the two creatures who produced all life. As for the Celts, they honored the bull in their ceremonies. During the celebration of Beltane, fires of Bel, the herds were led in the midst of fires in order to insure their protection and fertility. As we will see in our study, the symbolism of the bull is found in many stories or aspects of the life of the Goddess.
We notice that the Hebrew letter Lamed means balance and movement toward heaven. Peh, located at the end of Aleph, corresponds to Mars. We have, therefore, the idea of an impulse with a link between heaven and earth.
In general, odd numbers are masculine and even numbers are feminine. In the I Ching, book of wisdom of the antic Chinese civilization, the odd numbers are attributed to the celestial world (male, authors note) and the even numbers to the terrestrial world, to the Earth or to Mother-Earth (feminine world). Symbolic of Numbers, 87.
The number Two is the feminine number par excellence. It is the answer, the reflection, and the companion. Dual number by essence, it is the symbol of duality, thus of the manifestation of that which was created. It is also the recipient that welcomes the energy of intent of the One and allows the One to take form. Thus, the One cannot exist without the Two. As soon as the Infinite Consciousness enters into the volition process, the Two is inevitable.
The Feminine energy, the Mother, is then the revelator of the Consciousness in incarnation, in the world of physicality. The woman, the Mother, the Creation, are the vessels by which the One or Creative Intelligence exists and expresses Itself.
All cosmogonic legends propose an identical story for the origin of the world. The Source, the Intelligence, divides itself successively into complementary and twin gods who then share the responsibilities of creation. These two forces incarnate the principles of expansion (yin) and retraction (yang).
In Genesis, the Spirit of God or breath is the expansive and dilative force that moves above the waters and begins to create. Fabre dOlivet translates the term the waters to mean universal passivity.
In the Babylonian and Chaldean myth, when the heaven-from-above and the earth-from-below had no name, there only existed Apsu, the primordial Ocean, and Tiamat, the Tumultuous Sea. The merging of their waters gave birth to the Chaos or Mummu, the tumult of the waves; then to two monstrous serpents, Lakhmu and Lakhamu.
Lakhmu and Lakhamu are identical to the first two Logoi. They gave birth to the male principle or celestial world (called Anshar) and to the feminine principle or terrestrial world (Kishar). From these two creative principles were born the gods Anu, Ea, etc. The latter are the Igigi who have peopled the heaven and the Annunaki who scattered on the earth and in the inferior world. QUOTE?
Tiamat, called the Dragon, the Sea Serpent, rebelled against the god Apsu, who wanted to destroy the human beings. For the battle, Tiamat gathers around her dragons, sea monsters and storms. The one who confronts her, in the name of the male gods Apsu and Anshar, is Bel-Marduk. Bel kills Tiamat, opens her skull in two parts; with one Bel molds the celestial vault and with the other, the solid grounds.
According to the myths, the Great Mother is also the Sea, the Waters. If the Mother is not directly assimilated into the Dragon, she gives birth to monstrous dragons and serpents. She is surrounded with dragons. In China, the feminine principle represented by Kwan Yin rides a dragon.
In the context of the terrestrial story, when the Michaelic Consciousness, Creative Spirit, manifests under divine hegemony, It sends a fraction of Itself into matter and then onto the earth. The Michaelic Consciousness or frequency then takes form successively in the systemic body or meta-organism from which the Earth is a part. At the systemic level, It overshadows and utilizes as a tool or a body, a constellation – the Constellation of Draco or the Dragon. Then, through the Dragon, It penetrates the terrestrial body and brings Life to it, the Fire of Prometheus. This fire is amassed in what Gnosis calls the first chakra of the Earth. In the same way that the first human chakra contains the individuals life force and DNA, the first terrestrial chakra holds the vital force and genetic map of humankind.
The Dragon enters planet Earth and brings to it the combination of the Vital Force and the DNA. It is then the terrestrial Kundalini or Coiled Serpent. The Dragon, espousing the terrestrial body, reverses his polarity. The Kundalini or terrestrial fire is feminine. This fire represents the vital potential and the characteristics of the human race that have seeded the Mothers body, planet Earth, and have blossomed in the Goddess womb. The terrestrial Kundalini must climb/rise along the planetary spinal column and rejoin the six planetary chakras, in order for the Earth to be able to transmute its atomic structure and to evolve in harmony with the solar system. (See Chapter)
The Great Dragon is then a part of the Michaelic principle, Its lower Self incarnated, and thus became dual, physical and feminine in its expression. But the Dragon is also the MALE POLE, the SEEDS, the VITAL IMPULSE in the Consciousness of the Mother. In other words, the Dragon is the masculine aspect of the Mother
In his book Sepher Yetzirah, Aryem Kaplan says: According to the Talmud, the pole serpent mentioned by Isaiah is the male dragon, while the coiled serpent (Nashash Akalkalon) is the female. (Jeremiah 31:22) Sepher Yetzirah, 236.
In consequence, the mother under its multiple forms, is not only associated with the Dragon, but with the Michaelic principle. The Archangel Michael or Saint Michael is found on the same sites as the Mother, whether she is called Isis, Diane or Mary. Saint Michael is the Mothers protector. He, the spiritual part of this Consciousness, overshadows and gives his strength to the sites, temples and churches in which the Dragon energy is present, received by the Mother.
All the edifices that are now dedicated to the Virgin Mary were not specifically, in the past, consecrated to the Great Mother. But the elders knew that on these sites the Dragon energy flairs up to give its might to the Earth, to the Mother. It is on these magical sites or vortices that the ancients celebrated the cult and built the temples dedicated to the Goddess, to the Dragon, or simply to the Divinity.
The practice of the Mysteries and of the cult spread around the Mediterranean Basin and had even penetrated the territories that were under Hellenistic traditions, such as Crete, Cyprus, and a part of Asia Minor. The Mysteries were common under the Roman empire of the first century. The Isiac cult and the Mysteries grew with success, stirring up governmental opposition for centuries. In the third century CE, they were supplanted by the new religion of Christianity imposed by Rome, which has endured until our time.
PRESENCE AND METAMORPHOSIS OF THE MOTHER
“It would seem more than a chance that so many of the virgin mothers and goddesses of antiquity should have the same name. The mother of Bacchus was Myrrha; the mother of Mercury or Hermes was Myrrha or Maia; the mother of the Siamese Savior – Sommona Cadom was called Maya Maria, i.e. ‘the Great Mary’; the mother of Adonis was Myrrha; the mother of Buddha was Maya; now, all these names whether Myrrha, Maia or Maria, are the same as Mary, the name of the mother of the Christian Savior. The month of May was sacred to these goddesses, so likewise is it sacred to the Virgin Mary at the present day. She was also called Myrrha and Maria, as well as Mary…. T. W. Doane, Bible Myths, p. 332.
The Great Mother, symbol of manifestation on the physical plane, has been at the center of the cult in all ancient religions. Under diverse names, she incarnates Life, fertility, healing and protection. Whether she appears under the traits of an ancient goddess, a Black Madonna, or disguised as the Virgin Mary (especially in Europe), her nature is unchanged. The Great Mother, the Goddess of the Darkness, gives birth, feeds and seduces. She is the inevitable passage. She invites human beings to immerge themselves in all aspects of matter, to go into the depth of themselves, into the darkness of their being, where She waits for them in order to lead them toward the Light.
In the kabbalistic Tree of Life, the One corresponds with the sephirah Keter and with the causal concept, thus opposed to the lowest sphere of the tree, Malkuth, which represents the concept of effect.
The goddess is associated with the Dragon and the Reptiles:
– Ishtar, whose name is also attributed to the planet Venus. In Babylonia, she is escorted by the Dragon-Serpent, symbol of the god Marduk.
– Lamia, the Serpent Goddess from Lybia, daughter of Heaven, has a reptilian body, with the head and breasts of a woman.
– Medusa, goddess of wisdom, has the snakes, symbol of wisdom, as her hair.
Later, the Mother mutated into the Black Madonna; she is often represented with serpents or with theVouivre under her feet:
– Notre Dame de Valfleury (Loire, France)
-Vierge de Saint Aventin (Haute Garonne, France)
-Vierge de Saint Julien, France, in Vinca (cedille) stands on two dragons
Examples of Christian sites where there was a cult to the goddess in the past:
– Farfa, Benedictine Abbey
According to some lists, a Black Madonna was found in the Benedictine Abbey in Farfa, Italy. Only her face is still visible, the rest of her body was covered with a layer of copper. The foundation of the abbey is attributed to San Lorenzo Siro or Saint Laurenthius (sixth century) at the time of the emperors Julien or Gratien. A church was built to the glory of Notre Dame. The Abbey was destroyed by the Lombards and rebuilt at the end of the VIIth century by a monk from Savoy, Tommaso of Maurienne. Archeological searches seem to prove that this building was erected on a Roman construction and eventually on the ruins of a pagan temple. It is also noted that this abbey stands on a territory that was occupied by the Sabines, who have been famous in history after they were betrayed and raped by the founders of Rome.
The Vatican: Although the Son superceded the Mothers popularity, her presence imposes itself in silence in the museums. In the past on the site of the Vatican, the cult of the Goddess Cybele was celebrated:
Altar dedicated to Cybele and Attis
Rome, St. Peter’s Square, 374 AD marble
The shrine of the Phrygian goddess Cybele, from which numerous inscribed altars come, was situated in an unidentified place near the Vatican Basilica. It had to be closed following the measures taken by the emperor Theodosius against pagan cults in 391 and 392. Among the numerous inscribed altars found there is this altar dedicated to Cybele and Attis, with the sacred pine of Attis, a bull and a ram, a souvenir of the sacrifices made, together with various cult objects. The precise date of its dedication is inscribed on it: 19 July 374 AD.
Montovolos Black Madonna and its Presumed Ancient Temple of Isis
by Graziano Baccolini
Another “legend, reported in some books, relates that at one time there was an ancient temple of Isis at Montovolo. This story probably arisen or by the presence, at Montovolo, of a Black Madonna or by the fact that this Black Madonna was a reproduction of an ancient statue of Isis located in this site. In fact, modern historians recognize that the statue of the Egyptian Goddess Isis holding her child Horus in her arms was the first Madonna and Child. About Montovolo we found a legend of a serpent which is hidden under a large stone. This serpent is the guardian of a treasure and it is waiting for a kiss of a young girl to return to his original human form.
– Chartres, France: The cathedral was built on a druidic site, on which, it is believed, the elders venerated the Parturiente Mother, that is to say, the mother that is going to give birth.
Black Madonna: There are many in Europe and most especially in France. Some of them do reside on the vestiges of temples or sites dedicated to the ancient feminine goddesses.
– Roquamadour: one of the most famous Madonnas stands on a Celtic site, successively dedicated to Cybele and to Venus.
– In Cassel at Our Mother of the Crypt existed a domain dedicated to the Love Goddess Freya and to Hella, Goddess of Death. In Cassel, they are many ley lines. For this reason and according to the tradition, on Saint John day, during the winter 1128, the founders of the Knights Templar, the nine knights sent by Saint Bernard, walked up the hill, side by side.
– Bourisp: the Madonna rests on an ancient cull site dedicated to Cybele.
As the Goddess of Fertility, the Mother assures young couples and childless couples of having descendants:
– Black Madonna at Bourbon LArchambault.
She has also the power to bring back to life children who have died at birth or before being baptized:
– Black Madonna at Saint Roman dAy
– Our Mother of the Path at Serigny
– In Douvres, Our Mother of Relief
– Our Mother of Antioch (Meuse)
– Our Mother of the Irons (??) in Orcival
On various sacred sites on which the Mother is now venerated as the Virgin Mary, no trace of ancient goddesses is left. But, on those sites were implanted megalithic stones, dolmens, that mark the presence of the serpentine energy of the earth and of the serpent.
– Our Mother of Fontpeyrine in Tursac
– Black Madonna in Saint Beat
– Black Madonna in Cassel
The ancient goddesses are associated not only with stones, but often with black stones.
Before being represented, the archetypal concept of the darkness associated with the Mother was symbolized and honored under the appearance of a black stone that had fallen from heaven. Bethyl, meteorite black stone, represents the Mother as the recipient of the darkness, the Chnotic Goddess.
– Aphrodite in Paphos
– Cybele was adored by the Amazones under the form of the black stone of Pessinus in Phrygia, in central Anatoly, now located in Turkey.
– Astarte in Biblos
– Diane/Artemis in Ephesus.
– Mecca: at the south-eastern corner of the Kaaba, stands the black stone. The black stone is not associated with a cult of the goddess anymore. However, it is entirely plausible that before the conquest of the Kaaba by Mohammed, the Moslems also celebrated the Mother. Curiously, it is the site made sacred by Abraham when he conceived a son with Hagar. Moreover, the priests who officiated at the Kaaba are still called the sons of the old lady. It is also said that on the site of the Kaaba, the Moslems used to adore tribal gods, the gods of nature called the daughters of Allah.
Virgins associated with Saint Michael:
– Corneilla de Conflent
– Longpont sur Orge, next to Saint Michel sur Orge
THE MOTHER AND LUCIFER
It is interesting to note that in the ancient cults, the Mother is associated with the Dragon, with the Solar God, with Satan eventually, but rarely with Lucifer.
In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs changed their names when they had a radical transformation in their destiny or their religious beliefs. The most famous example is Akhenaton. The pharaoh bore the name of Amenophis in Greece or Amenhotep IV in Egypt. Amon is in peace. In his fifth year of reign, he then changed his name into Akhenaton the grace, the light, the one who is useful to Aton. Secrets of the Exodus, 46.
When a spiritual Consciousness descends from Spirit into Matter, it endorses multiple bodies, which are all a different aspect of Spirit. The names attributed to the Creators and their progenies correspond to the frequency level crossed by their consciousness.
The names born by the Goddess, incarnations of the feminine Energy, correspond to a language, to a culture, to an interpretation of the cosmogony by the people. But, the archetypes move and evolve also according to the times or epochs and their circumstances, e.g., although Isis, Ishtar and Lilith are all feminine Goddesses, they have nevertheless radically dissimilar personalities.
The Luciferian groups who practice sexual rites do not specifically honor the Mother. They eventually do speak about the feminine principle, but mostly they use women. They are stealing the energy, the power, the hormonal substances, the light of the Mother, and they give nothing in return.
The planet Venus is also called Venus-Lucifer. The pentagram, symbol of Venus, symbol of incarnated man is, when reversed, the symbol of Lucifer. In this case, Venus, symbol of love and Wisdom, becomes essentially Isiac and plays the role of the priestess whose body is the temple.
Lucifer is a male spiritual principle. When the Archangel incarnates, abandoning his light to lead the human beings in their terrestrial journey, He takes form in matter and then reverses his polarity. He then becomes feminine.
Venus has been known since pre-history and she is the most shiny object in the sky after the Sun and the moon. As was the case for Mercury, the popular belief was that they were seeing two separate bodies: Eosphorus was the morning star and Hesperus the night star. But the Greek astronomers already knew that these were a one and only star.
Venus is the daughter of Zeus. Before the rise of the Sun, she is Hesperus, Star of the Night. In the darkened world, in the absence of the Solar Gods, she is then allied with Lucifer and with Babylon. As in the legend of the War of Troy, her beauty triggers battles. During the Lucifer cycle of reign, Venus is the alter ego of the earth.
As Venus-Aphrodite she brings experiences and sensations to the young soul, willing to learn the archetypes/principles of darkness, matter, sexuality and procreation. The souls voluntary descent into matter and darkness is thus performed next to Lucifer.
Venus, Isis, the feminine principle, allowed humankind to be acquainted with the capacity of feeling. Through maternity, sensual desire and then through romantic relationships, a human being experiences the various faces of love. Parental love and especially maternal love is the love of the blood, the instinctual attachment even felt by animals. It is inexplicable and imperishable. Romantic love teaches the capacity to love, without reason sometimes, but still with the possibility of making choices. Mastery consists in the understanding of and working with a feeling instead of being enslaved by it.
The soul has to INTEGRATE what was experienced or felt, using it as a tool for evolving. This aspect of the work is achieved with Mercury, who is called the god of Wisdom. In this sense, he is Hermes, the one who brings wisdom to the gods and to the human beings. The tool proposed by Mercury is the mind.
With the assistance of the Serpents of Wisdom and through the Hermetic Tradition (Hermes=Mercury), the soul is progressively guided toward higher dimensions. The integrated experience allows the spiritual marriage, the birthing of the Herma-phroditus or the fusion between Hermes and Aphroditis. Venus Aphroditis plays then her role of Morning Star and covers, with her presence, the sign of the Taurus, symbol of divine manifestation. When the link is permanently established, the need of questioning, the doubt, which is Satan or the opposition principle, disappears. Lucifer does not need to play his role as a guide any more. Venus has transformed into Sophia.
This evolutionary principle of the soul was well understood by the ancients who venerated the menopausal woman. Maturity and wrinkles were not considered or lived as degradation. The woman was not rejected by society because her body had changed. She became the channel and embodiment of wisdom, of the counselor. The woman at that time comes back to Saturn, the planet that incarnates wisdom.
The Divine Royal Lineage is associated with:
– The cult of the Great Mother: The Mother, hierophant of the Darkness and lunar principle, conducted the Lineage to the initiatic crypt. The Sons of the Dragon have then accepted diving into the darkness. They have in the past practiced Satanism.
– The Goddesses of fertility and later with the Black Madonnas: The Sacred Bloodline is then active on all sites where those rites were practiced. These cults are not necessarily represented by the presence of statues or of the Mother, but often with megaliths.
– The Dragon, and then with all activities related to the veins of the Dragon or terrestrial meridians. The Children of the Dragon are naturally attracted to the Vortices with which their bodies are in resonance.
– The Archangel Michael, who is the Dragons Higher Self: the Lineage, the Royal Blood is not associated with Lucifer but with Mikael. Although the roles of those two Archetypes are intimately connected, the excesses of the Darkness were only a passage, a necessary phase. Therefore, the Bloodline has to come back to its starting point, through the use of the Mercurian principle.
THE DANCE OF THE MOTHER, OF THE SUN, AND OF THE DRAGON
The relationship between the Great Mother, the Sun and the Dragon is brought to light by their periodic meetings on the path of the Sun or path of the Ecliptic. When the Solar God joins his companion and lover, the moon, they have two privileged meeting points named the Head and Tail of the Dragon or Lunar Nodes. The axis of passage of the Dragon is called Teli in Hebrew and Al Jazhar in Arabic, from the Persian word Juzhar that means nodes.
In occidental astrology, the interpretation of the Lunar Nodes is limited. The Indous attach more importance to it and call them Rehu and Ketu. Below is the tale of the birth of the demons Rehu and Ketu:
In Hindu mythology there is a wonderful story that describes how the gods and the demons once formed an alliance to produce a nectar that could give them immortality. This is the story of the churning of the milk-ocean and the descent of Lord Visnu as the Kurma avatara, the divine tortoise. When the nectar that was churned from this ocean was being served to the gods, a demon, disguised as a god, sat between the Sun and the Moon in an attempt to procure the nectar. When he was detected by the Sun and the Moon, Lord Visnu immediately severed his head from his body. Unfortunately, it was not fast enough, for the demon had already tasted a small quantity of the nectar and had become immortal. Ever since, this demon is said to wreak vengeance on the Sun and Moon whenever they come near. The head of this great demon is known as Rahu and his tail is known as Ketu. ww.sanskrit.org
The earth orbits around the sun, while the moon goes around the earth. But, from the standpoint of the observer, the sun seems to turn around the earth. The illusory path of the sun around the earth during a year is called the ecliptic The lunar nodes are the intersections between the moons orbit around the earth and the path of the ecliptic.
The North Node, also called Dragons Head, is the point at which the moon ascends from the south to the north. The moons orbit rises above the ecliptic. It is also called the Ascending Node. The South Node is the point at which the moon goes north to south, that is to say, the path of the moon falls below the ecliptic. It is thus called the Descending Node or Dragons Tail.
When the Sun and the Moon are conjunct and either lunar node is conjunct with both, a solar eclipse occurs. When the Sun and the Moon are in opposition, and one of them is conjunct with a lunar node, a lunar eclipse takes place. The ancients said that during the eclipses, the Dragon swallows the moon momentarily.
In occidental astrology, the Dragons Tail represents the subconscious tendencies, the karmic programs that control ones present daily life as well as the interferences generated by parallel lives (= past lives). The South Node brings into ones reality the decisions made by Self and the human will, according to the experiences of the past. The energies of the Dragons Tail are then considered karmic, material, destructive and dividing.
The Dragons Head symbolizes the karmic objectives of the present life and the focal point of the soul, in regard to personal evolution. The soul is confronted with its possible futures. Higher objectives are proposed when the soul is in contact with the Solar Self. It has the possibility to opt for a reversal through the acceptance of the Spiritual, Divine Will.
The Sun and the Moon:
The most fundamental of the contrary is the one formed by the couple Moon-Sun, the feminine and the masculine. The mediator that harmonizes one with the other is, from an astronomic point of view, the Axis of the Lunar nodes. Licorne, 395.
If we consider the Sun and the Moon as the symbols or embodiments of the Masculine/Father/Spirit energy and the Feminine/Mother/Matter energy, the role of the lunar nodes becomes very clear. The interplay between Heaven and Earth, the Light and the Darkness, the Soul and the Body, the Solar God and the Goddess, is thus enacted indefinitely and at all levels of creation.
The band of energy generated by the relationship of the solar and lunar forces triggers the appearance of the Body of the Dragon. For centuries in the case of the soul and for eons with that of the Solar System, these energies dance and cross each others path until they reach perfect equilibrium. Then the masculine/solar and feminine/lunar polarities merge.
For the Creator or Michaelic Consciousness, the necessity to express Itself in exile implied a phenomenon of separation and generated the appearance of the Great Dragon. The Dragon, in turn, entrapped itself in density and took on a body, the body of the earth. The Goddess, earthly Queen, who rides the moon, is the tool utilized by the soul to practice the tricks of the subconscious mind and of the non-self. The Dragon is a phase, an intermediary state.
At the individual level, it materializes the time-space in which the soul learns and grows during a cycle. The cycle is the Mothers womb that will later be symbolized by the crypt. During this long stay in incarnation and density, the soul feeds itself regularly through its contacts with the Solar Presence. It feels its impact and regenerates itself in the energy field of the Dragons Head, when the Dragon comes close to the sun. When the soul engulfs itself in the subconscious mind, in the miasmas of the past or the meanders of karma, it returns to the Dragons Tail and experiences another cycle of darkness and chaos.
The feminine Goddess who incarnates the subconscious forces, the parts of self that are not understood and denied, is the recipient of the lunar energies. The Goddess seeks her companion, the Solar God. She reaches him through the Dragon or Lower Self of the Creative Consciousness. At each eclipse, the lovers come together temporarily. The ancients understood that the Mothers destiny, as evidenced by the lunar nodes, is intimately linked to the Dragons fate.
The Dragons Head is associated with the energies of Jupiter, which embodies expansion, and the Father or the Fathers will. Note that the Head of the Dragon leads the soul or the Earth toward the Solar Consciousness. An important point in this volume, Jupiter symbolizes the Presence of the King and the application of the Divine Plan.
The Dragons Tail is linked to the energies of Saturn. Saturn presides over and represents the incarnation into density, as well as the force of retraction. However, Saturn also brings wisdom to the one who knows how to welcome this planet with an attentive ear and an open heart. This brings us back to the Dragons descent, that is to say, to the Serpents of Wisdom. The latter brought to humankind the Knowledge and the Mysteries that open the path to Wisdom and Redemption. The leader of the Serpents of Wisdom is Mercury, messenger of the gods. (The term Hermetic is derived from his Greek name, Hermes.)
In consequence, the Dragons Head is of the same nature as the two fortunes Jupiter and Venus, and increases the forces of the planets with which it is conjunct. So much that with the goods planets, it is good and fortunate, and with the bads, it is very pernicious. The Dragons Tail, in the contrary, it is of the same nature as the unfortunate Saturn and Mars. It brings prejudice and decreases the strength of the planets with which it is conjunct, as with the goods it is bad and with the bads, beneficial. LUsage des Ephmrides (Paris, 1624) dAntoine de Villon.
The message is clear. According to the Divine Plan, the Dragon or Serpent has left his spiritual state in order to follow the human race in its journey into the flesh. He has participated and contributed by bringing his DNA and then Knowledge so as to make the earthly experience more efficient.
This statement also applies to the Dragons or Serpents of Wisdom, to the Children of the Great Spiritual Dragon, who took the responsibility to incarnate as human beings at the beginning and at each turning point in the history of humankind. The Dragon and his Children allow human beings, through the relationship with the Mother in the crypt, to see the Light by generating spiritual eclipses. During the eclipses, the candidate for initiation can access the Solar Light and thus connect more deeply with his soul.
When the candidate is ready, he can decide to utilize the positive aspect of the Dragons Tail, and apply discernment in order to acquire wisdom. Later, he will walk toward and focus on the Dragons Head. There, he will be guided by the Dragon toward a goal common to the race, i.e., the retrieving of the Divine Soul and the return to the Light.
Within the planets Jupiter and Saturn, we recognize the concept of expansion-retraction. If the soul does not learn wisdom, it retracts itself. Saturn applies the karma according to the individuals capacity or inability to find wisdom in the challenges that are presented. As soon as the disciple is free from fear and the ego, able to let go of the need to control situations, then he opens the door to the beneficial energy of Jupiter. In fact, this means that the soul has accepted the solar will or the Fathers will and, at the individual level, the will of the Monad. The candidate does not need Venus in the role of the Evening Star any longer because his passage in the crypt with the Mother has freed him of the need for the Darkness. He is ready for the Conscious Light and for Divine Love.
AT THE PLANETARY LEVEL
At the planetary level, when a meeting of the Sun and Moon occurs in a house or conjunct with planets whose energies will create a dissonance, the Dragons Tail rises and scourges the elements all around. It is then the instrument of Karma. Fired up by the presence of the Solar Star, the Sun, the Dragon becomes a conduit for purification. The energy of the Michaelic Consciousness enters through the channel of the Teli and applies the transmutation. This is the role of the sharp sword of the Archangel which transforms, cuts and discards the tatters of the past. With these kinds of astrological aspects, important earthquakes were recorded.
When planets are conjunct with the Dragons Head, the systems, the groups, and the mechanisms designated by the planets have already been affected by the alchemical transmutation of Mercury. A deeper harmonization then occurs between the Dragon and Its Archangelic Self, and simultaneously between the Earth and the Solar Consciousness. In this case, We assist in the progressive growth of the soul or soul group in the area pointed to by the planets or the houses in question. A choice was made, and the Presence of the Archangel brings more Light and more blessings.
Bear in mind that, in the concept of creation, the Dragon represents the part of the Creator that was projected out onto the earth in order to engender the human race. The Dragon (the Serpent, the Kundalini) brings the vital life force and the genetic map or DNA.
It is also the initiator of the Lineage of the Dragons. Consequently, when the North Node is affected, a will toward the evolution of humankind is imprinted on the magnetic field of the planet modifying the genetic map of the race. It is also judicious to check if, at a political level, the planetary aspects indicate a thrust of the Royal Bloodline to reach its goal.
The movements of the energy on the Dragon Axis activate:
At the individual level:
– The deployment of the personality of the one who gets rid of his instincts South Node, and is heading toward aligning himself step-by-step with the Monad or Solar Soul. In so doing, one resolves internal challenges and overcomes opposites. When one ceases to be concerned only with ones limited personal world, that individual is then ready to participate in the realization of the Group-Souls destiny. In actuality for humankind, the destiny of the Soul-Group is dependent on the destiny of the Solar Logos (Solar Consciousness).
At the planetary level:
– The alignment of the Earth Consciousness with the Solar Consciousness. In the process of its growth, a soul or a planet naturally develops alignment with the Star or Being that is its center. This harmonization first takes place at the frequency level. Then the terrestrial body follows by changing its atomic structure and its axis. In its course around the Sun, the earth aligns its poles on the stars/Consciousnesses/vibrations that it needs for evolving. This implies a movement of the poles. Our current Pole Star is Polaris in the Little Bear. 3,000 years before the Christ Era, the Pole Star was Thuban, the third star from the end of the tail in Draco. In about 14,000 years, Vega, the most brilliant star in the Lyra, will be the Pole Star. Vega will be six times brighter than Polaris.
At the solar and galactic levels:
– There are also solar and galactic axes according to which the Earth orients itself. The Dragon runs along these axes, called Teli. The Earth was harmonized with the galaxy between Draco and the Lyra, in order to prepare its future. The Serpent or Dragon rose along the Galactic Teli, from Draco and the Lyra, in September 2002, and triggered from Mont Saint Michel, Saint Michael Mount, in France.
THE TELI OR AL JASHAR
The term Teli, with which the kabbalists take many opportunities to exert their love for rhetoric, is found neither in the Torah nor in the Talmud. However, it appears in the text of the Bahir. Only one word in the Bible has a corresponding root. It is the term Talah which designates a kind of weapon. The root Talah would also mean to hang. The scholars inferred that the Teli was the celestial axis around which the heavens rotate.
In describing the position of the stars, the ancients made use of the ecliptic pole, rather than the celestial pole. In this system, we find that the constellation of Draco actually surrounds the ecliptic pole. It also has stars in the sections of all the signs of the zodiac. It is therefore literally the Pole Serpent, since it is the serpent that surrounds the ecliptic pole.Sepher, 234.
Some cabbalists identify the Teli with the Serpent Pole mentioned in Job 26,13 and in Isaiah 27,1 under the name of Leviathan. It is the imaginary axis around which the heavens rotate. It is seen as an imaginary line from which the celestial sphere hangs very much like a bola from its line. According to this, the word Teli comes from the root Talah, meaning, to hang. Sepher, 233.
There is a tradition that there are two Telis or dragons, one male and one female. They are identified as the two Leviathans and are mentioned in the account of creation, God created the great dragons.(Genesis 1,21). According to the Talmud, the Pole Serpent mentioned by Isaiah is the male dragon, while the coiled serpent (Nashash Akalkalon) is the female. Some cabbalists state that the constellation of Draco is the male Pole Serpent, while the inclination of the ecliptic is the female Coiled Serpent. The female therefore encompasses the male, this being the mystery of a female shall surround a male (Jeremiah 31,22). Sepher, 236.
Let us first mention that in the common translations of the Old Testament, the text of Genesis 1,21 does not speak about dragons or Leviathan, but about great fishes and whales. The author then consulted once more Fabre dOlivets translation. He interprets the Hebrew word as a relative and proper movement or circular and rectilinear, a reptiform vibration. Then he concludes: One finds in the proper sense a reptiform movement, and in the most restraint and materialized, a reptile. In regard to the verses of Job and Isaiah, they mention a crooked serpent and the dragon that is in the sea.
In the human structure:
In the human body, the reptilian energy and the Serpent move according to several axes. The most important work that one has to accomplish is the process of balancing the opposites, the masculine and feminine energies. The results of this gradual task are manifested by an accumulation of energy in both meridians, the Ida and Pinguala, on both sides of the spinal column. This process of harmonization concerns the individual versus him/herself and with his extensions or parallel selves, disseminated in space-time. We can say that this harmonization is internal and lateral. When Ida and Pinguala have reached a sufficient state of growth, the Kundalini, until then dormant, wakes up and rises on both sides of the spinal axis.
At the same time, a second process takes place which is the harmonization of the Total Self with the Solar Consciousness. It is a bridging task between Heaven and Earth. It is, in fact, a search for alignment, that concretizes little by little by the placement of ones energy Structure and Monad into the auric and magnetic field of the Solar Consciousness. This movement is a vertical harmonization.
At the Earth Level:
If the Teli is the axis around which are organized the Dragons reptoid movements, then we must consider several axes:
– The horizontal planetary axis, around the ecliptic
– The central axis that crosses the earth through the poles
1. The Earth, as a Consciousness and in tandem with humankinds soul group, balances itself between the masculine and the feminine polarities, between Light and Darkness. This work is promoted and triggered by the interaction on the earth magnetic field of the Sun and the Moon. This is the movement evidenced by the Lunar Nodes.
The axis, around which the setting into balance happens, is horizontal. The Teli executes a reptoid movement between the Dragons Head and Tail. This aspect of the Teli is feminine in polarity.
2. Simultaneously, the planet tries to align itself with the meta-organism from which it is a part, thus with the Solar System, with the Solar Consciousness, and with the Spiritual Sun. This is the alignment process between Spirit and Matter, between Heaven and Earth, the goal of which is the refinement of the earth frequency. Throughout the cycles, the planet orients itself physically toward the star or constellation that concretizes the level of evolution that it has to reach during a specific cycle.
About 4,500 years ago, the North Pole was marked by the star Thuban from the Draco constellation. It was the epoch during which the Serpents intervened again in the progress of humankind. The North Pole is currently oriented toward Polaris in Ursa Minor. At a future time when the Earth is oriented to the Star Vega in Lyra, it will be working on its alignment with the Higher Self of the Michaelic Consciousness for the present creation period or the complete creation cycle. At the end of this phase, humankind will have reached complete harmony with its Creator and will be able to accomplish its maximum evolution.
The vertical axis that crosses the poles is the masculine aspect of the Teli.
