Orpheus, Hypatia & the Lyrid Meteor Shower on the ‘I Think Speech’ podcast
A few more thoughts to ponder about the burning of Notre-Dame. which occured around this time during the Easter Paradox of 2019:
This powerful Cathedral is considered to be in the very heart of Paris – the ‘zero point’ – at the center of a powerful vortex of interlacing ley lines.
And of course, as we know, most Churches are built on the sacred grounds of former temples or mystery centers. Beneath ‘Our Lady’ lay the ruins of a Temple to Isis. The Templars built this Cathedral in the 12th century, in honor of Mary Magdalene, personified as the Black Madonna, symbol of the secret Wisdom of the Divine Feminine. And so, the former Egyptian Isis had been renewed & crowned by them: ‘Queen of Paris’.
You can see a statue of Saint Mary Magdalene outside the Western door, to the right of the Portal of the Virgin, between the Main Entrance & the Portal of the Last Judgment.
The statue of Saint Joan of Arc inside on the South wall of Notre Dame, features a key symbol linking her to Saint Mary Magdalene – a distinctive pouch hanging from her belt, mirroring the iconographic item traditionally depicted on the belt of Mary Magdalene.
By the Middle Ages the Goddess ‘Cybele’ had become another name for the Divine Feminine, ‘Our Lady of Wisdom’, or ‘Lady Philosophy’ of the French alchemists.
“Cybele, as Goddess of philosophy” is also portrayed on the Western portal of Notre-Dame. She has her feet on the earth & her head in the heavens. She holds two books, one open & one closed – symbols for exoteric & esoteric knowledge. Leaning on her breast is “Jacob’s ladder”, which represents the gradual path of knowledge, leading to her scepter of wisdom, in divine union.
Perhaps with this burning, the ‘point zero’ of Ile de la Cité – the Island that Notre-Dame sits on – is in the throes of a fiery re-birthing…
And let us not forget that many people have been burnt at the stake in front of Notre Dame – Notably the Grand Master of the Templars himself, Jacques de Molay. Not to mention the countless women accused of being a witch.
Interesting to note that the relic of the Crown of Thorns is housed there.
Could it be that the Divine Feminine, buried beneath Notre-Dame, is awakening once more, surging up thru all that is falsely imprisoned. Could it be that with this burning & unholy inscription into the ethers, the New Isis will rise & open a path like a fiery phoenix, to a true Resurrection, reborn out of the flames of the divine Feminine reclaimed..?
Is ‘Our Lady’ trying to get our attention, just as the nationwide ‘Gilets Jaunes’ or ‘yellow Jacket’ protests have been vying for recognition, amid growing anger over rising fuel taxes & the high cost of living…?
And/or is this an example of a “Reichstag fire” – a false flag facilitated by an authority to promote their own interests through popular sympathy?
Always so much to think about in the signature seen in world events…

Ascension: The Secret Teachings, The Elementals, & The Etheric Christ – Hazel Archer
Calendar of the Soul – Luigi Morelli
For those who are familiar with the Calendar of the Soul we could say that during spring and summer we follow the ascent of cosmic life, cosmic light, cosmic warmth and cosmic Word as gifts bestowed upon the human being by the cosmos. By being receptive to them we strengthen our connection to cosmos and Self.
We will briefly explore the dynamics of the year, then look at what qualities of soul we need to develop as we move into spring and summer, most particularly from Easter to Ascension and Whitsun. We will look at the verses of the calendar in conjunction with the artistic renditions of Anne Stockton and Karl König, drawn for each of the verses.
We will ask ourselves: How can we live into and grow from this time of the year? How can we deepen our inner relationship to the event of Ascension? What can we receive and what can we give?

May be seen the Dews among,

Do the Buds to them belong?”

You are a character Hazel – interesting POD! Had quite a day, did you?
22 Pharaoh mummies were relocated in an elaborate procession earlier this month. Evokes images of resurrection, perhaps?..
These events all seem to have a sort of magical quality to them in my mind.
hmmm, Interesting, I hadn’t heard.
But Yes, we are recapitulating the 3rd epoch of the Egyptian times
