The following are technical support notes to the essays included in
’From Transylvania to Tunbridge Wells’. As such there will be
numerous repetitions of the subjects covered in that work, as it was
extracted largely from these notes. However, a wealth of extra
material follows which could not be drawn in detail into the
narrative of the essays. This material stems from 1985.
The Sabbatical Goat
The symbol of the goat’s head in the inverted pentagram is said to
be the traditional glyph of medieval European Satanic Witchcraft.
Since that time the Sabbatical Goat has become ubiquitous throughout
the left hand path of occultism. The letters around the perimeter,
usually displayed in Hebrew consonants in common usage, spells
L’V’Th’N: Leviathan. In apocryphal Jewish holy literature it was
Lilith, fleeing to the Red Sea, who became identified with the
Leviathan, a sea monster, often portrayed as a giant serpent or
The colors used in representations of the above are invariably red
on black. Although thought of as Satanic, these colors on the
Aziluth or Imperial level of the Cabalistic Tree of Life are not
Satanic at all, but are Sacred to Binah. The Emperor is red,
representing dynamism; and the Empress is black, representing the
primordial sea of Understanding or Being; i.e. Space/Time. Red and
Black were used by
Cathars, who tied their
Blue-Black Robes (cf.
Sufi cloaks) with the hated ’little Red Cord’, which also appears as
the Garter or Points in Scottish Witchcraft. The use of a red cord
has a twofold symbolism in that it is also identified as the woolen
cord that was wrapped around the horns of the Scapegoat of Jewish
history. The Scapegoat was identified as Azazel, an angel or
Nephilim/Watcher, a prototype of the later sacrificial
Binah is ruled by the Planet Saturn or
Chronos. This takes us into
the Titanic period of civilization which preceded the Jehovan or
Olympic age. The sacred flower of Binah is the
Lily and its tree is
the Cypress, used for both funerals and weddings (ie. both
destruction and creation), and its sacred animal is the bee, the
Sacred Mason and the drinker of the nectar of the Lily. Uniting the
concept of marriage (sexual union) with death (negation) is Tantric/Proto
Cabalistic and therefore Aryan; and therefore
Ubaid in origin. The
sex-negation concept is central to the theory of hierogamy, divine
union and courtly love which is expressed in alchemy and
inextricably linked to the drinking of the "nectar" of the
This is the true meaning of the Merovian Bee, which in its use by
them was also intended to link them with the forgoing concepts and
the Primordial Sea, the waters of Chaos or Tiamat as well as
Saturn (Anu) and Lilith’s sacred
color is Purple, which is the
origin of its use by Emperors and kings. Displaying this color
denotes their descent from Lilith and also the Titans.
Saturn is the predominant planetary sphere ruling
planetary archangel or nephilim was
Azazel. The Sabbatical Goat
developed from Khem (formerly Azazel) whose cult was
the Temple of Mendes. Later Grecian expressions of this cult cast
the Khem as Pan who, by the medieval period, had become
the Solar-Goat deity of the French witches who, trained by the
Templars and Cathars provided, in a very basic form, a plebian and
religious variant of the more complex scientific and genealogical
tenets of those whom they supported and to whom "Satan"; the
Sabbatical Goat, was the "Good God", the liberator from church
oppression and the iron grip of their other christianized overlords.
The principal figure at these sabbats was a figure with a shining
gold torso and the head and legs of a goat. It was revered as the
Black and Gold Sun, echoing the origins of Khem as a solar deity but
also embodying the Draconian symbol of Sirius, the
Black Sun or
eight pointed star.
In England Khem-Pan was known as Puck, son of
Titania (Titans) and
Robin Hood or Robin Goodfellow. Goodfellow is reminiscent of "The
Good Folk" and provides one of many links between English and
Scottish Witchcraft and the Fairies, who are also called the
(because they literally were the lords and nobles of many districts)
and "Shining Ones".
British Sabbats were overseen by a "Man-in-Black", usually the local
Lord or Baron who was worshipped as the God of the Sabbat, ie.;
Robin or Satan, Pan or Khem.
Witchcraft in Europe and Britain was run by the Templars and
and provided the groundswell of support at the grasroots level for
the Fairy aka Grail aka Dragon families and the doctrines which made
them distinct. Witchcraft is original christianity, practicing
christian gnostic dualism and providing, in their tens of thousands,
an army of support for the scions of Christ.
The church persecuted Templars, Cathars and
Witches equally as
heretics. If witchcraft was, as the fluffy bunny apologists of the
20th c. claim, a pagan religion, it would not have attracted the
animosity of the church, who only prosecuted heterodox christians
A final note on Chronos/Saturn/Anu. He was the inventor of
Agriculture and thus may be identified with
the Annunaki of Sumeria
who also developed advanced farming techniques and settled
agriculture. Wherever one travels in the world the figure of Saturn
is invariably depicted as an old man with a beard leaning on a
staff, even in societies where the members don’t grow facial hair
themselves. He was the grim reaper, the god who controlled the fate
of man. As such, he was in the fullest and most precise terms the
God-King of the Fairies, the Fata or
Pan was the son of Hermes. Hermes was an intermediary between the
Gods and man, a prototype of the Pontiff or bridge, the
God king. As
mercury he is also identified with Odin, another sacrificial god,
whose totem animals, the raven and the wolf, both feature as grades
of initiation in Mithraism and are specific grades of Vampire in
Romanian tradition. The Stregoica or wolf-vampire (werewolf) of
Romanian tradition derives from the root word Strega, which is Latin
and where Stregoica is a vampire in Romanian (which is a Roman
language), in Italian a Strega is a witch. The Turkish for
is Uber, a witch. Note Ubermensch.
Mithras is a balancing factor between good and evil, an intermediary
very much like Hermes. Odin as the one eyed God mediates between the
worlds and to gain the wisdom of both hung upon Ygdrassil, a
- Samael symbol of the Tree of Life/knowledge. As a
Blinded God he
is reminiscent of the blind serpent who mediated between Lilith and
Samael at their union.
Ham is known traditionally as Chem. In
Hermetics and dualism he is
known as Chem-Zoroaster "a great and venerable Magus", the
the 10th Age of Capricorn. As Archon or representative, he is
identified with Capricorn as its physical manifestation, ie.
Capricorn. Originally the symbol for Capricorn was a creature half
Goat, half Sea Monster. This takes us back to the inverted pentagram
of the Sabbatical Goat encircled by the word (also meaning issuing
from the space or womb of) Leviathan who is the Sea Monster, (Lilith)
and Sea Dragon of primordial chaos (Tiamat). Therefore the
Sabbatical Goat is Capricorn the Sea Goat. As the Egyptian God, the
Sabbatical Goat is Khem, the solar deity of Mendes and
Khem is a
variant spelling of Chem who is Ham who is the
Archon of Capricorn
and Capricorn incarnate.
Ham the accursed one of the christian bible, moved to
Egypt. As a
Dragon God King of the Line of Annunaki, the originators and
Draconian Patrons of human Kingship, Ham or
Chem-Zoroaster became Khem the
first Sebekh. The Sebekh is the Crocodile (water/sea dragon
or Leviathan) God, who is the Patron of Kingship. He wears a solar
(cf. Khem) disc upon his forehead suspended between two (goat)
horns. Ham or Chem is Sobekh 1st;
T’Ham’Pthis, the first dragon king
of Egypt to use the Sebekh title and thus proclaim his right to
create kings. First God King of the Egyptian cult of Draco.
The Sobekh title may distinguish the grafted line of the immigrant
dragon kings of Sumeria from the indigenous Semitic, Nubian and
Ham as Chem-Zoroaster and also as Khem and later
Pan son of Hermes
is closely linked to the concept of Aryan Dualism and its symbol;
the entwined serpents - Mazda and Ahriman, light and dark.
Mazda is Ormuzd and Ahriman is
Enlil or Jehovah. Ormuzd derives from the
Indo-European Orm, a worm or Dragon and
Masd, white or light, hence
white worm (see vampire mythology) or Dragon of Light. Ahriman is
thus the Dragon of Darkness, hence the Satanic inversion "Good is
Evil and Evil is Good". The entwined serpents or dragons appear as
the serpents of the caduceus of Hermes, who is father of Pan; the
Goat headed solar deity Khem. The caduceus is crowned with a solar
winged-disc and the entwined serpents are reminiscent of the double
helix ribbons of the thyrsis wand of Dionysus, which is crowned by
the pine cone depicting the pineal gland. The symbols are variants
of each other in a Hermetic sense.
Dionysus was the son of Zeus. The worship of
Dionysus was brought
from India by the Alexandrian Greeks. Zeus, his father was known as
the Indian or Aryan Dispater, which translates as Deus Pater or
father god, aka Enlil or Jehovah. If
Hermes can be identified as a
variant of Mithras, who was descended from the Aryan
Hermes is either an Uncle or Brother of Dionysus.
Zirvan is Time.
Saturn or Chronos is Old Father Time.
Therefore Zirvan and Saturn are identifiable. Consequently
is Hermes son of Chronos who also fathered
Zeus. Hermes and Zeus are
brothers. If Zeus is Enlil, then Hermes is
Enki, Samael, Masdoa
(Mazda, ie. Mazda is Mithras). Hermes is the father of Pan and Zeus
is the father of Dionysus. Pan and Dionysus are always featured in
the same retinue and as Bacchus, Pan’s rites duplicate those of his
twin Dionysus. The totem animals of Dionysus are the
Jesus ben Panther), the Goat and the wolf (Stregoica, werewolf,
Mithraic totem etc). Other symbols include the basket with
alchemical eggs and serpents. The Dionysic Rites were cannibalistic
and vampiric and echo the era of the cannibalism and vampirism of
the (Titanic) era of the sons of
If Zirvan is the Titan Chronos, father of
Zeus-Enlil, then Chronos
is Anu who is the son of Apsu or Uranus. The union between
and Aphrodite (Venus; as in Venus-Sheba-Lilith) included the nymph
Salmacis with whom they enjoined much as with Samael,
Lilith and the
Hermes is the uncle of Dionysus who is the cousin of
In Draconian Tradition (see Kenneth Grant)
Baphomet is translated as
Bapho Mitra or Father Mithras. Baphomet is also rendered as Head or
source of wisdom. If Baphomet is rendered Father (or Source)
and Mithras is identified as Samael the Dragon, then one has the
Source or Head Dragon, the origin of Pendragon.
Baphomet, the "Deity" of the Templars was described as being both
the Head of Wisdom, which has Celtic and Galatian origins; and the
Sabbatical Goat. As the Sabbatical Goat, the
Templar glyph also
used by the Cathars, the medieval witches and later generally by
satanists and left hand path occultists, was more complex than the
simple pentagram. Baphomet was pictured as a cross legged figure
(cf. Cernunnos and Krshna (?), both Lords of the Forests and
identifiable with Herne the Hunter, who is Annwn and
Odin who led
the Wild Hunt, in search of "Fairy Women" (sic) with the head and
legs of a goat, the scaly torso of a Dragon, the breasts of a woman
and the phallus of a man.
Baphomet has Angel’s Wings (Swans feathers) and a torch between its
horns. Its right arm is raised with index and forefinger extended.
On the forearm is written the word Coagula. The fingers point to the
new moon. Its left arm points down and to the side and the index and
little finger are extended to form the horns of the goat. The
fingers point to the old or black moon (Kali). On the left forearm
is written the word Solve. Solve and Coagula are alchemical terms.
On its forehead there is displayed a pentagram with single point
uppermost. In the simpler form the goat’s head traces the figure of
the inverted pentagram and thus it is to be understood that one
pentagram equals the other thus, as the single point pentagram
represents the Goddess, then she and the Goat are one, as is
represented by the combining of male and female sexual attributes in
Such a thorough union of the two sexes negates the individuality of
both and on the magical level this again represents death (of the
self) through Marriage of the two leading to the alchemical, tantric
concept of illumination through hierogamy facilitated by the cubic
jewel (emerald of Venus) depicted in the inverted pentagram where
the conjunction of the geometric lines with those of the crutch of
the horns forms the "Jewel in the Crown of Lucifer", the cubic stone
or Grail. Again, when reversed the simpler pentagram represents the
The goat’s chin becomes her head, its ears - her arms and its horns
- her legs. The The Jewel, the emerald cubic stone then becomes her
vulva and womb. Baphomet reflects this idea with the conjoining of
the goat head and upright pentagram and enlarges upon the idea by
displaying a flame between the horns. The Flame is
Womb Fire or Starfire, enlightenment through the fluid of the womb.
The sex and death idea, as we have discovered, belongs to Binah and
the various attributes and symbols of that sephirah should be
recollected in relation to the Baphomet symbol.
The wings of Baphomet are swan’s wings and this immediately speaks
of the swan princes, grail princesses and fairy queens which
symbolize the dragon blood. Baphomet is a Nephilim. Its legs are the
legs of Pan and its head-the head of Khem which conjoined to the
serpent or dragons torso representing Leviathan, says the same as
the Sabbatical Pentagram, the Figure represents Ham or
Chem or Khem
Zoroaster the Sebekh, Archon and incarnation of
Capricorn, the goat
headed Dragon of the Sea.
Entwined around the phallus of Baphomet are the serpents of the type
represented on the caduceus of Hermes. This also reinforces the
Zirvan-Mithras-Ahriman identification. The Phallus as staff or
of life is the Plantagenista in one sense which, in being capped by
an egg, is the symbol of potential which qualifies the image.
Conclusion. Baphomet is a type of Chem Zoroaster who is the
associated with Meroveus.
Baphomet and the Mendes pentagram are genealogical badges - early
forms of heraldry - incorporating the symbolism of the blood rites.
The inverted pentagram and
goat symbol is not Satanic, it is a dynastic marker.
devil worship, is just Catholicism inverted.
Whilst the Picts endured internal exile in
Scotland, their distant
cousins faired less well in England and Wales. Foreign encroachment
had been intense in these countries and forestry had been decimated.
Both populations North and South of the border were less
technologically advanced than the incomers and less adaptable, being
essentially nomadic Priest Kings and not farmers. However the
in Scotland managed to survive longer than those in the rest of the
Island, who were forced to live in less and less space as time
marched on. Both cultures became even more insular because of their
inability to cope with living outside the forests and instead
retained their kinships and their culture separately from the
outside world, venturing out to steal in order to supplement the
dwindling resources in their own wooded kingdoms, or waylaying
travelers who dared to trespass on their greenwood domains.
With the marriage of King Kenneth MacAlpin to Princess Uistnecc of
the Picts in the 9th century, the Pictish and Scottish Kingdoms
became united and many Lords and Princes of the Dalriada sought
magical Pictish Princesses for themselves. In this manner many
slowly became integrated within Scottish society and left their
Forest Kingdoms forever to follow their Ladies and Lords. However
not all succumbed to life outside the domain of the ancient woodland
and sufficient remained to sustain both kingship and culture in the
manner of their ancestors, against a new encroachment and a far more
insidious threat - the rise of Roman Christianity.
By MacAlpin’s era the Catholic Church had enacted the
Constantine (312 a.d.) for some centuries and had attempted to
divest all but their own Cliental Royal Houses of the right of
Kingship. By implementing policies of regicide and controlled
marriage the Church had attempted to breed out the pre Carolingian
royal bloodlines that stood for genuine kingship and thus posed a
potential threat to the stranglehold that the Church had gained over
By the medieval period a new weapon had emerged from the
Arsenal - The Inquisition. As the Grail and Pictish Royal and Noble
Houses followed a separate spiritual path to that laid down in 325
AD at the Council of Nicaea, those houses and their retainers and
supporters were subjected to several hundreds of years of
persecution and terror. This was done ostensibly to purify the
Christian Faith of Heresy and rid the world of the Witchcraft, in
fact it was simply to thin out the opposition.
Merovingian spiritual doctrines varied but were born
from the same root tradition that Jesus followed, that being the
Indo-Aryan Priest Caste, the Magi or
Druids. This set of doctrines,
so at variance with the Church’s pretend version of Jesus’ teaching,
was labeled Witchcraft and Heresy and countless numbers of people
died as a result of believing in it and supporting the Royal and
Noble Houses who were its hidden Priests and Priest Kings.
In Scotland and France many noble houses of
Merovingian and Pictish
descent were massacred and the inquisition took on the proportions
of a "holy" crusade which often destroyed whole towns and villages.
In England the Kings from William Rufus’ time were far less inclined
to indulge the Pope. The Angevin Houses were barely christian
themselves and had far more than "just a smattering" of both
and Merovingian blood.
Consequently up until the Tudor period the witch craze in England
was by comparison quite a sedate and subdued affair. Indeed the very
"Fairy Kingships" that the Vatican
were so scared of and were trying
to eradicate, were actually recognized, lauded and supported by a
succession of English Monarchs including Richard I, Edward
Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, despite the latter’s questionable
provenance and claims, and their institution of illegal
These ancient Kingships were ritually observed in the old families
within which the right descended. The pre-christian King in a late
post-christian setting was often called Robert or Robin Hood or
Goodfellow. Often associated with Witchcraft his realm, like his
fairy ancestors the picts, was the Greenwood and his subjects were
the pagan rustics who inhabited every district across the country.
The stories of the coven meetings by dead of night in the forest
deep or the open moor are stories of the survival of a culture and
its kingship that precedes the coming of the Romans, the Saxons and
the Church with its fraudulent and thus spurious form of Christian
Though two reasonably distinct but related lines, the Pictish and
the Merovingian cultures amalgamated in Britain symbolically in the
merging of the French and Scottish Arthurian legends and the
tales of the Forest Lords and Ladies. A close study of the
characters and some of the events in both traditions will reveal
that not only are they similar to each other but they bare a
striking resemblance to the story of Jesus who, in Celtic
Christianity is termed a Magus and Druid. This appears to be the
problem as far as the Church was concerned.
Having broadcast the idea that Jesus the rightful King had no
descendants, thereby leaving the way open for his "appointed"
apostles the Roman Bishops to assume the role of kingship, there
still persisted the stubborn insistence in some families that they
and not the Church were the rightful kings of the people by blood
descent from Christ. In the matter of both Robin and
Arthur, the Merovingians and the Picts, it was well known by Roman clerics that
the line of Jesus and the line of the Tuatha de Danann
from the same Royal bloodline and all the time that that line
remained in existence, the Church was in danger of being toppled by
a popular movement led by one of these dynasties.
So the church demonized Robin and pronounced the
Grail heretical. Nevertheless in the late medieval period in Scotland, England and
France the "Witches" still met and the Local Noble of the Blood
Royal would preside as Robin Hood, Robin Goodfellow,
Noir or the "Devil", accompanied by his Queen and Priestess the
Diana or Marian. In Tudor England Henry VIII reconstituted
Priest-Kingship and his daughter, Elizabeth the "Fairy Queen" was
excommunicated for refusing to allow the Catholics back into power.
A case of right action, wrong actors.
The Stag of Windsor
Before Elizabeth was crowned by the Bishops, she underwent
coronation by the people. Attending the ceremony were a host of
"Wild Forest Dwellers" who’d come to bless the new Queen. Later in
her reign she attended a curious ceremony in the Forest of Windsor
Seated before a pavilion in a clearing one Spring morning Queen
Elizabeth, with her complicity and consent presided over one of the
most ancient druidic and shamanic ceremonies in Eurasian culture. A
ceremony that harkened back to the time when much of Britain and the
continent was covered by massive forests, namely the trial and
accession of the King of the Caille Daouine, the Lord of the Forest.
The King of the Forest is the Stag of Nine Tines. In the lays of
Robin Hood, Robin himself is revealed as the
Green Stag and the Totem
is repeatedly interwoven into the fabric of ancient northern
Kingship. In pre-christian and non-christian Europe, to claim the
Kingship of the vast greenwood, the pretender was obliged to ride
and kill whilst mounted, the great Stag of Nine Tines.
This task was possibly one of the most dangerous stunts anyone could
pull. During the Spring Rut the Stag is vicious, belligerent and
half mad with lust and territorial rage. Getting anywhere near him
was a feat of courage in ’itself. However, to be rightly invested
with the true kingship of the Forest Peoples, it was necessary first
to depose the reigning monarch, the Great Stag.
On the spring Morning in question one of Elizabeth’s
Queen’s Chamberlain Edward de Vere charged into the self same
clearing mounted upon the great Stag of Windsor Forest. Its throat
had been cut by the rider and he and the Stag came to an abrupt halt
at the Queen’s feet. Edward de Vere was the premier Count of England
and the senior Peer of the Realm. His lineage was far superior to
that of Elizabeth, he descended from the the House of Anjou, from
Melusine and the ancient Pictish and Danann druid Kings of Gaul,
Albany and Eire.
A necromancer, anti-christian and libertine, Edward had contempt for
the Tudors. He was student of Dr John Dee and it is still insisted
that Edward was the true William Shakespeare, whose work is teaming
with stories of Elphame and Magic. Shakespeare Oberon is
whose name literally means Elf King, whilst his Titania is
whose Druidic, woad colored Boar wears her crescent Moon upon its
flank in the crest of the ancient family of Vere.
Three of Edward’s recent ancestors had borne the name Alberic and
the first of them in England had adopted also the falling star of
Lucifer as a badge to denote, as Verily Anderson expresses it, the
Vere’s "near divinity" as descendants of the line of priest kingship
that originated with the first Elf King - Samael or
What the Queen had attended and approved was the investiture of an
ancient Forest King who, in her time, would have been the spiritual
custodian of the hidden royal blood and the true cultural legacy of
the British people.
For centuries the tales of Robin Hood had circulated around Britain
and the ritual investiture of de Vere can be added to the corpus of
that spiritual tradition which, apart from the obvious confusions
between the ceremonial Forest Kings, the real Robin Hoods, and the
plethora of common or garden murderers, villains and kidnappers, has
thrived everywhere there has been a Grail family supported by the
People, assuming their regional roles as the ancient Priest Kings
and Priestess Princesses of the Dragon and the Greenwood.
Some one hundred and fifty years after Edward de Vere a Scottish
cousin of his was the hereditary chief of the 13 covens of
Mid-Lothian. A Consort of the Queen of Elphame (a descendant of the
early Pictish or "Fairy" Princesses) , Major Thomas Weir,
Laird of Kirkton and the infamous sorcerer of Edinburgh had himself conducted
the ancient rite of Druidic Kingship in the ceremony of Epona.
Professor Margaret Murray insists that he was, like his cousins and
ancestors, a Priest King of the Elven Line of the Grail and the
Dragon. In 1670 he and his sister were convicted of witchcraft and
burned at the stake. His trial records show that his conviction for
being a witch depended entirely upon whether or not he (and his
sister) had been servants or consorts of the fairies. They had, and
they died for it. The Earl of Bothwell is said to have replaced him
Attempts have often been made to identify "The Real Robin Hood".
Numerous characters have been put forward as likely candidates and
perhaps the nearest anyone has got to pinning him down was Professor
Murray when she identified Robin Hood as a collection of composites
from many regions and many times. At the heart of her theory is the
assertion that Robin was a God figure that was at the centre of the
cult of witchcraft.
Indeed this is the case, as is her discovery that the witches God
was represented at the sabbats by one or other individual who,
regardless of the regional or cultural variation of the period,
invariably descended from a Grail or Dragon - Fairy - Family. The
rituals of witchcraft were varied and contained syntheses of
Catharist and Templar Dualism, Druidism and
The Dianic rites were observed by the Royal Covens and generally the
"religion" of witchcraft more closely resembled Jesus’ own doctrine
than the Church itself.
This is borne out, by the Druids ready acceptance of Celtic
Christianity, the fact that Jesus’ original, undoctored Gnostic
teachings were founded on Essene Magian Philosophy amalgamated with
the mystical doctrines of Mithras and Dionysus.
Alchemy, Cabala and Hermetics were the centre of Christ’s Anschauung. All the foregoing
are components of that Eurasian "religion" we know as
which, for the Indians is Hinduism and for the Persians is their
Zoroastrianism which for the West eventually became our Celtic
Robin Hood or Robert Hod or Od is
Odin - the Blinded God "Samael".
As Master of the Wild Hunt he is Herne and Cernunnos the Lord of the
Forest. In Hinduism he is also the Lord of the Forest as
his incarnation as the Blue Boar. As Samael he is also
Pan and Khem,
Chem-Zoroaster and Mazda. The Son of Anu he is a
Dragon King of the Danann. He is Herne - The Great Stag of NineTines - the King of the
Ancient Eurasian Forests. Jesus played his part as evidenced by
Augustine’s letter to his disciple Ceretius in 400 AD. Augustine
states that Jesus often sat in the middle of a circle of his
followers and crossed legged in the manner of Pan or the Templar’s
Baphomet, he would play an
accompaniment to their ring dances, invoking aloud the Ogdoad or
Eight Great planetary Spirits of the Gnosis. English and European
Woodcuts of the Reformation period show Pan or "Robin Goodfellow"
engaged with his witches in identical firelit, woodland frolics. If
he were alive during the medieval period, Jesus Christ our Saviour
would have been arraigned by the Inquisition and tried and burned at
the Stake for both Heresy and Witchcraft!
Jesus Mac Art
The word Jesus used to describe his assembly was "Church". The word
derives from "Circa", a Ring or Circle. In the Celtic Christian
period, going to Church was called "Going to the Stones" or
Circles. Jesus was a Messiah or Dragon King. Those who followed him
by blood descent, either through the Davidic Merovingian lines or
through the Scythian descent of the Dragon Kings of Anu, both of
which lines have a common origin and share many historical dynastic
alliances, often took, as Jesus did, the role of the "Robin Hood".
Perhaps the name varied from country to country or from region to
region but the identity was essentially the same and the figures of
the pageant of the Elven Kings of the Forest were perennial. Even
Charlemagne, who wed an Eastern Fairy Princess, belongs in the cycle
of stories celebrating the continuity of the blood of the Dragon
Queens and Grail Kings. His Wedding to Frastrada was blessed by the
appearance at the feast by a Dragon bearing in its mouth an
Alchemist’s Ring of Power, which it dropped into Charlemagne’s
chalice of blood red wine.
One might suggest that the Dragon Bloodline had forgiven the
treachery of Charlemagne’s fathers and reconciled his House with the
Merovingian Kings who had established it , but by which they had
effectively been betrayed as a result of the cunning wiles of the
Roman Church. I doubt it though.
Charlemagne was a Merovingian caught at the back end of a dynastic
reshuffle not unlike many other Merovingian dynastic reshuffles.
Essentially his was fractionally the blood of the Grail and the
Dragon, but the spirit of his house was slowly being twisted and
condemned to servitude under a religion which claims him as being
one of its greatest champions, not unlike it claimed his predecessor
Constantine who, it is said, took a timely baptism on his deathbed.
It should be noted that history is written by the victors and in
retrospect the victors from our point of view, have been the Church
who rewrote history time and time again to suit their own ambitions.
Charlemagne belongs, if anywhere, to a variation of the Grail Myth
known as the Ring Cycle, and though Charlemagne is hailed as a Hero
of the Catholic faith he, like others who proceeded him, has what
the church might consider to be a dark undercurrent to his nature.
On the surface he is a christian emperor but even so he accepts from
a "Dragon", the gift of a Ring which, not unlike those of
were regarded by the Church as being symbols of Satan.
Ring of Power, the Alchemist’s Oroborus, was the figure of a
Dragon or Serpent encurved into a circle and set in the act of
biting its own tail. It was the symbol both of eternity and, as the
symbol of primordial chaos, the Dragon Ring also represented
the mother of Anu,
the Nephilim and the Titans.
From these ancient Deific Rulers descended Lilith and
Samael and the
Race of Cain and Ham, the arch enemies of the Church and, as they
would have it, the arch-enemies of Man. The story of Charlemagne’s
Dragon Ring, rather than being allowed to stand unmolested, has
become somewhat of a morality tale. To remove the dark undercurrent
and remove any doubt that Charlemagne was the Church’s biggest
supporter the tale features a Merlin/Friar Tuck/Judas Priest figure
called Bishop Turpin who, seeing that Charlemagne has become
obsessed with the ring, steals it and throws it in a lake. This he
does for Charlemagne’s own good, you understand and not in any way
a) pervert Charlemagne’s attention from his true origins so he
concentrates more on being a christian or
b) rob Charlemagne of a traditional Druidic source of power and
divination, which were the functions of Solomon’s Dragon Rings.
Of course not. Turpin was thinking solely of the good of his
and acted entirely out of altruism for the emperor. Having thrown
the ring in a lake, the story twists upon itself again and recounts
that Charlemagne was led, as if by spirits, to the very same lake,
with which he became inexplicably obsessed to such a degree that he
built a palace next to it.
If anything the story illustrates that those of the Dragon Blood
cannot deny their heritage, which eventually will find them, despite
what they believe or where they are situated geographically or
socially. Even if that heritage is "stolen" or discarded, it will
still be there in the pool of the subconscious and, because it is
genetic, once it is switched on, it can never be completely switched
off again, however much ridicule, disbelief or hostility it
engenders from within or without.
The Church got wind of Charlemagne’s ring and stole it, but he never
abandoned it or the heritage it represented, so the Church recounts
that this Evil Ring obsessed him until the end of his days. Canines
and feeding troughs come to mind. This story belongs to the Ring
Cycle which inspired Tolkien who unfortunately has inverted the Ring
in much the same way as the Church did.
Tolkien’s characters nevertheless are taken from the Dragon and
Grail Families who, like Robin Hood, actually existed in one form or
another. The Ring of Power, the Dragon and the Grail are exactly one
and the same female symbol of sovereignty, nurturance and subsequent
transcendence, hence the never-ending circle of eternity and the
joyous chaos of the unlabelled, the unnamed and the undefined that
Tiamat really stands for. Language creates structure, relatedness
and psychological order which we think of as reality. The sequential
nature of language and thought create time but eternity is beyond
time and consequently beyond thought. If eternity is beyond thought
and its paranoid obsession with order, then eternity must be chaos.
The Ring equates with the well and the fountain deep within the
hidden at the centre of the dark, mysterious forest. Guarded by a
water nymph or Dragon Maiden, the flow of this fountain and the
waters of this well bring union with the eternal, heal the divisions
within the mind and bestow Anschau. With a still mind the supplicant
of the Maid feels the surge of power released and the gift of wisdom
At one with themselves and consequently with the Godhead and the
source of all power they understand themselves to be the centre and
the source of all things. In this revelation there is obtained
absolute Sovereignty over self which itself becomes Sovereignty.
The Dragon that bestowed the ring on Charlemagne was
Fairy. Like Tiamat, Lilith, Tamaris, Sheba, Diana, Arduin, Brigid,
Lamia, Janet of Carterhaugh, Gwenhyfar, Pressina and Melusine,
Frastrada was a Dragon Princess and a Grail Maiden. She is a
Magdalene and a Maid Marion.
Without these Queens and Princesses, none of the Kings associated
with them throughout history would have been fit to reign. It is
only she who can bestow the gift that brings sovereignty which as
transcendence and creativity, bestows blessing and fertility upon
the kingdom through a wisdom and depth of vision that anticipates
difficulty and initiates productivity through activity that, for any
other than the King and Queen, would appear totally uncausative.
Through the ability to see situations several steps down the line,
they are able to plan ahead and bring blessing upon the land and the
For this reason patriarchal religions hate women, like little boys
trying to be free of Mummy’s apron strings they deride the female
for her authority. The Church is fully aware of the regal identity
of the Dragon Kings and fully aware of the power of the
Princesses through whom and by whom those Kings reigned. For this
reason the inquisition was particularly directed against specific
Puffed up with male pride and misogyny the Church fully knew and
hated the fact that beneath the symbol of the Lamia lay the truth of
a distinct neurological difference between not only fairy women, but
fairy men as well. The Dragon Princesses produced a chemical that
acted on their own physiology to produce a state of mental composure
and grace that history symbolized as the swan, not only because of
their elegance, but also to denote the origin in the anatomy of that
The consequent state of grace produced by this chemical and the
energy it afforded, uninhibited or wasted by any preoccupation with
stress or inner conflict, appeared to make the female glow with an
inner serenity and beauty that many people described as Fairy
The state of peace that they enjoyed was, to an ordinary care worn
observer, utterly alluring and charming, a quality to adore because
in proximity to her the energy could be felt like soft electricity
which had a calmative affect on the mind which, as it slowed down
and became still began to perceive the joy and sense of oneness that
has no beginning, no cause and no ending but lies hidden behind the
internal barriers, taboos, fears and attachments that we use all our
mental energy to sustain in our minds which, usually quite exhausted
has no energy to spare to see beyond the tired struggle with imposed
illusions. In her company the observer would partake of her abundant
morphic energy which could provide the observer with enough energy
to see beyond and begin to understand that mortal care is
unimportant. A mind thus stilled glimpses the eternal and this is
one aspect of Hierogamy and the Love that is Death.
The chemical also has a physical affect in transferred to the
observer. The same stillness occurs and produces psychotropic
effects. The problem was though that the observer would have to have
sufficient numbers of the correct axon membranes in the right type
of synaptic receptors and an increased number of dendrites
connecting the appropriate brain cells across both hemispheres. In
other words the Dragon Princess had round pegs and
Dragon Kings had
lots of round holes, in contrast to non Dragons, who seemed to have
different shaped pegs and holes and less of either
The Church hated the fact that they couldn’t use the "Magic" so they
attempted to destroy it so no one else could use it either. This
they hoped would result in a level playing field where the glaring
stupidity of their own monarchic clients wouldn’t be noticed in
comparison to the hopefully exterminated and thus unobservable
wisdom of the true fairy kings.
It would also appear that the Church knew that the Fey, because they
participated in the eternal spirit of the One, were themselves
eternal, needing no forgiveness - for sins they transcended - and no
priest to intercede for them to a god whose spirit they were at one
with. The Fey knew salvation was chemical and physiological, being
determined on the ability of the mind-brain to perceive the eternal
mind of the Cosmos and join with it. With their inherited natural
body chemistry they were predisposed towards the ability to negate
the ego and see beyond time and tide and understand that their
individual consciousnesses or spirits weren’t individual or personal
at all, but aspects of the one consciousness, which was eternal and
required not the salvational ministry of a church that was run by
the living dead.
Worst of all the Dragon Queens and Kings, not being descended from
Adam and Eve, completely bypassed the absolutely farcical doctrine
of "Original Sin", the lynch pin of the Church’s contrived
Raison D’etre. Without Original Sin there could be no subsequent
Sin and if
there were no subsequent Sin there was no need for salvation. If
there was no need for salvation for a people who could see beyond
the contrived notions of good and evil and therefore couldn't be
blackmailed into paying into the Church’s spiritual protection
racket, these people and their culture represented a threat to the
profit margins of the prelates. The Church couldn’t exploit what the
fey had and they feared what the Fey instilled in their client
tribes people and communities.
Therefore the fey had to be eliminated in order that the Church
could take over the communities and install into them the kind of
guilt and fear that encourages converts who can then be transformed
into a pliant, captive consumer workforce. The Church recognized the
problem and began a gradual process of deionization,
marginalization, genocide and finally academic ridicule and
The Salmon of Wisdom
"The Maiden guards the fountain and the well and at the bottom of
the well there lives the Salmon of Knowledge. Every month a nut
drops from a tree that grows over the well and this blood red fruit
is consumed by the Salmon".
The Druids who concocted these riddles were wise enough to know that
Salmon didn’t live in Wells and if they’d meant ’underground river’
they would have said,
"the Salmon of Knowledge that occasionally
happens to swim to exactly the right spot to catch a fruit that
isn’t ever part of its normal diet anyway but for which, all the
same it will navigate thousands of miles just in order to flounder
about in the dark waiting under a bore hole - for an alien and
The Salmon of Stupidity? Anyone who seeks a plausible answer to this riddle based on matter of fact, reasonable
explanations has probably eaten a sizeable lunch portion of the very
fish whose behavior and habitat they are attempting to rationalize.
The Salmon of Knowledge therefore isn’t a fish. If one takes a whole
Salmon and cleanly slits its belly open and removes the lights, then
spreads the reddsish-pink flesh apart to form an oval shape, it is
reminiscent of something or another I’m sure. As the fresh meat
bleeds under the knife, one also brings to mind the Blood Red Nut
that the Salmon purportedly finds so irresistible. What is a nut? It
is a seed, a beginning to new life, very much like an egg which,
colored red is the object being held by a beautiful Mary Magdalene,
whose pretty lips are slightly upcurved into a subtle, knowing smile
which, it appears, is fully intended to taunt and infuriate!
By wisdom a Fish may become a Flower that begets a Flower.
The allegory of the Well appears in the Song of Solomon, the
of Irish History and the Story of the winning of the Elven Lover -
Tam Lin (Thomas Lindsay) - by Lady Janet of Carterhaugh.
It is fascinating to see that the Scythians and the Jews have so may
symbols and allegories in common with each other with regard to the
Holy Grail. The Scythian Gaels share with the Jews not only the
symbol of the Well in the Garden or Forest with the
also the Salmon which, in in the Judeo-Christian tradition becomes
the Christ, the Ichthys. By which means
Christ, his body and blood,
shed for the remission of sins, becomes altogether a deeper allegory
and his Virgin Birth finds echoes in the Lily of the Valley and the
Rose of Sharon.
There is no doubt that Christ existed as a living being. However,
was a Dragon King of the Grail Bloodline and many of the stories
associated with Christ are Rosicrucian and
Alchemical. The salvation
that he preached to his disciples was not obtained through faith but
knowledge or gnosis and that knowledge is woven into the parables he
told and the stories associated with him and with his close Royal
cousins, the Sidhe of Ireland and Albany.
Indeed the Grail stories of the Gaels precede Christ by centuries
and indicate that Christ was one amongst a long succession of
Kings whose teachings he too, in his turn, expounded. Jesus’
teachings and the stories surrounding him did not come into being
with his arrival into this life but were part of any already extant
corpus of secret knowledge which had been held in common by the Holy
and Royal families of Eurasia for millennia.
Beneath the stories concerning Jesus’ virgin birth, his life and
death are corresponding sub texts and symbols that, rather than
being part of a lineal account of his unfolding qualities and
exploits, are instead references to the nature and quality of his,
but more particularly, of his mother’s blood and its dynamic. In
this manner Christ himself becomes an allegory of the blood’s
qualities and potential.
Christ is the Ichthos, related to the Salmon of Nechtan, then
the blood of Christ shed for the remission of sins is the
of Jesus, but of the Messiah, the Messe or
Dragon Kings, shed by the
b) This Salmon lies at the bottom of a well which in the Gaelic and
Frankish tales (cf. Melusine) is guarded by the Dragon Maiden, but
which in the Song of Solomon is the Maiden Herself, who is
identified as "The Shunnamite", Sheba the virgin child bride and
sister of Solomon, who corresponds to both the Virgin Mary and
Magdalene in the New Testament.
c) the Virgin birth of the son of God, the seed of
David, is symbolized by the Magdalene presenting the blood red egg. The egg is
the son of god and the seed of David which as the nut from the tree
over the well is consumed and retained within the salmon which
represents the vulva that resides beneath the womb or well. Christ
simply means anointed one and derives from Messe
the act of
anointing a Dragon Queen or King with the fat of the Sobekh or water
dragon (crocodile). By understanding the dual meaning of Ichthos we
comprehend that Ichthos as both Christ (anointed-messe) and
(fish) means "anointed Vulva of the Dragon Princess", giving the
meaning that her womb gives issue to the seed of god which is held
in the virgin vulva (christ) which sheds its blood, and the seed,
for the salvation of man. The body (ova) and blood (menses) of
Christ (the sacred womb).
d) The anointed vulva can be found in the
Song of Solomon.
are on the lock of the door, my fingers drip with Myrrh" - Sheba.
The act of anointing signifies sacredness and holiness, that someone
or something is set aside for some sole Holy Purpose. The anointed
Vulva/Womb that itself anoints is set aside for a higher purpose
that mere procreation. It is the Holy Virgin Grail which contains
the Blood of Christ, the Blood of the Messiahs or Dragon Kings and
Queens. The Virgin Birth was not a child, but a seed of a child and
Christs (the Vulva’s) sacrifice of its body and blood for the
salvation of man was the "birth" or flowing forth of the spent ova
in the menses which, in the Eucharist, is symbolized by the Bread
and Wine which, as we all know, must be consumed.
The Little Nut Tree
The Nut or seed which falls from the tree is properly the release of
the chemical by the pineal gland which overrides oestrogen and
causes the "seed" to be discarded in the menstrual blood which
naturally has an increased level of that chemical in it, which is
what the story is really getting at. In the Song of Solomon
says that she will give Solomon to drink the juice of her Pomegranite which is a symbol used repeatedly to represent the
virgin female organs which juice: Blood, is the red wine of the
"I had a little nut tree,
nothing would it bear,
But a Silver Nutmeg
The King of Spain’s
daughter came to visit me,
and all for the sake
of my little nut tree".
Beneath the political allegory concerning the proposed marital
alliance between Catharine of Aragon and Henry Tudor, there lies
another alchemical message.
The Badge of Aragon is the Golden Pear or Pomegranite. On
Card II of
the Major Arcana of the Waite Tarot: The High Priestess; is a veil
symbolizing the virgin hymen. Printed on the veil are rows of
Pomegranites which in turn also symbolize the virgin vulva. The
Priestess is the guardian of wisdom and the "mysteries".
The Palm Fronds interspersing the Pomegranites on the veil represent
the Palm Trees that grow next to the Pools in desert Oases and
equate with the Nut Tree in the story of the "Well of Nechtan".
These Palm Trees lent their name to a species of Holy Virgin
Princess who bestowed upon the King the right to rule. Their
category was "Tamaris" and Jesus’ daughter bore that name and title.
In Sufism the Tree of Life is represented as a
Palm Tree atop of
which is perched a Peacock. In the Welsh and Irish Tales the bird is
an eagle, whilst in Hindu Tantra the bird is a Swan.
In the popular nursery song quoted the Nutmeg
symbolizes the Pineal
Gland whose colour silver equates with the Moon and Diana,
representing the virgin huntress’s "moon" or menstrual blood. In
Ephesus Diana is depicted riding a Panther, which means that the
Panther clan carries her qualities, holy and therefore very special
Jesus’, and therefore, in anglicized form, Mary’s
family name was - Ben Panther or ’sons of the Panther’ which, in
mythology is interchangeable with the werewolf and was born by the
Plantagenets as their family badge.
The Nutmeg itself is known to be a powerful psychotropic drug which
recently has been synthesized as MDMA or Ecstasy. The story relates
that the chemical discharged into the bloodstream by the pineal
gland has psychotropic properties when processed via certain
exercises relating to the Tree of Life.
The Nut Tree, the Palm Tree and most other fruiting trees can be
said to represent the Tree of Life but the sovereign of all these is
the Apple of Avalon. If the Well and the salmon
symbolize the womb
and the vagina, below which is the vulva, then the tree growing next
to the Well represent the lower and upper torso, the head and the
arms of the Virgin female. The twigs and branches of the tree
symbolize the veins and arteries of rich, Holy Royal Blood and the
fruits of the tree represent the endocrinal glands that correspond
to the chakras in Tantrism, the Sephira in
Cabala and the Nine
Worlds in Viking mythology. The tree is Jacob’s Ladder or the
