Astrology: the stellar kalas of NU as they ray into our life web, open human consciousness to communion with the galactic life wave.

The Shadow Tarot

"Now riseth Ra-Hoor-Khuit, and dominion is established in the Star of Flame."

Aleister Crowley, Liber CCXXXI

"The fifteenth tunnel is illumined by the kala of the Star . . . The Guardian of this Pylon is Hemethterith who may be evoked by vibrating her name in the key of 'A' sharp, whisperingly, almost inaudibly . . . Her sigil . . . suggests a face above three equal-armed crosses arranged in the form of a descending triangle with two serpentine forms dividing the crosses."

Kenneth Grant, Nightside of Eden

The Shadow Tarot 

© Linda Falorio, 1995

Depicted is the body of the Goddess Iyemoja, her kalas glittering stars. Fleeing from her son, Orungan, She fell backwards, her breasts bursting open. The bionic life waves thus unleashed became, through cosmic superimposition, two spiraling orgone streams of the Milky Way, twin waters of the sign Aquarius.

Between the streaming breasts glows the Medieval astrological symbol of the Dog Star, Sirius/Sothis, Star of the Beast-child Set, the Sun behind the Sun, the Opener of the Circle of the year at the heliacal rising, first marker of cycles, and Creator of Time. Below, transcosmic orgone streams have formed into feathers of the peacock, sacred to the ancient devil-worshipping Yezidi of the land of Sumer.

Thus, the Yezidi worshiped their Dark God: Standing in the South, they faced North, abode of the glittering stars of the Body of Nu, of Ursa Major, constellation to which the Pole now points in its precession through the Ages. Stellar energy spirals in at the North Pole, manifesting Aurora Borealis. Heavenly meridians, kalas of the stars, are stepped down to Earth frequencies, stepped down again to human organismic scale. Astrology is thus the science of the transcendent stellar kalas of the body of Nu as they ray their energies into our life-web.

Eight eyes within the feathers of the peacock reverence the child, Set, eighth-born of the Goddess. Holo-ed within each feathered EYE is a seven-rayed star of Babalon, the sevenfold seal upon the Yoni of the Goddess the Seal of Set, Star of Sothis, Venus/Isis/Seven/Sevekhprimal goddess of the Seven Stars. It is the Seal of the Great White Brotherhood, the transcosmic Illuminati, who direct evolution of earth-consciousness.

Below, the Dragon of the Deep, Beast of the Apocalypse raises high its serpent heads in the form of streams of blood: the Soul, the Blood of Isis, blood of ancient gods from which humanity was formed, blood of human sacrifice is monthly poured upon the thirsty earth by way of blessing, of libation, of fertility. Infernal influences thus unite with spiritual ideals, Niyama of Venus is performed, the highest reached by way of the low. As above, so below. Microcosm and macrocosm exist as one. There is no difference. Mother Goddess, Earth Goddess, Goddess of the Seven Stars, Genetic Template of the human race, Bearer of Culture, Bringer-in of unknown Future selves.


A need to work with the energies of Hemethterith is signaled by encountering belief systems which hold distinctions between the sacred and the profane, asserting that the sacred is beyond our reach and understanding, and that thus by extension, the mundane cannot be holy. Here we may encounter the espousal of scientific materialism, along with lack of inspiration, and of spiritual ideals, and lack of true connection with the stellar life web.

The powers of Hemethterith lie in the recognition that human consciousness creates the Universe of Stars, and that the Stars in turn act upon human life and consciousness. Here we thus find "stellar vision," and reverence for songs of whales as they reflect the Ineffable. Here is satori with Gaia, the tellurian life web; here is sensitivity to Harmonic Convergence of cosmic cycles which accelerate human consciousness, turning-on the planetary exo-nervous system, and synchronizing resultant tellurian consciousness into telepathic communion with the galactic life wave. Here in the tunnel of Hemethterith we find the vision of the plumed serpent Quetzalcoatl, which is the realization of the Universe as energy in constant copulation, the blinding realization that existence is nothing but the material manifestation of cosmic orgonomic bliss.

Danger lies in naďvete in opening oneself and the planetary life-web to that entity whose dark nature one may be unwilling to admit: the devouring serpent, "Long Mouth Coming" (Lugis Thor, 1988 - on the Harmonic Convergence).
