20 April 2019 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Bright Venus shows herself in East an hour before sunrise gracing the predawn sky as the rosy glow heralding the Sun’s arrival grows brighter. About an hour after dark, the Pointer stars forming the end of the Big Dipper’s bowl point straight down toward Polaris. Face north and look way up. Polaris is about three fists at arm’s length from the Pointers.

A few more thoughts to ponder about the burning of Notre-Dame:
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?
So much to ponder on this Holy Saturday, when, in the words of the Creed in the Christian Community, The Christ “was lowered into the grave of the Earth…to rescue the souls of the dead who had lost their divine nature…” A sacred spot which thousands of years before had been experienced as the center of the Earth – which the ancients called the grave of Adam – A primeval gorge, which splits Jerusalem into two parts, believed to be the gate of the Underworld. The Good Friday earthquake tore open this original fissure, so that The Christ could make His Descent into Hell.
May the Saturn darkness become Easter Light, healing the realm of the dead – turning the grave of the Earth into a new Sun.
Blessings Dear friends & Sabbath Peace ~hag
