     This is the negative confession said by those who Seek in the temple of Bast in Egypt, when the world was young and we were in touch with heaven.  Later it became the list of Thou Shalt Nots commonly known to us and frequently quoted in church.  The important thing is that we be able to say it honestly;  there will be a test at the end, while we stand amid the stars of Cygnus.  We want to pass with flying crystal colors!


     But suppose we aren't able to make this negative confession honestly?  In ancient times we'd be off to Draco and be dismembered in Spirit by the monsters of destruction waiting there to recycle our better parts;  but my friends and fellow star travelers, times have most definitely changed.

     The tip off should be the fact that Bast and Maat, all the gods of judgment, ask for a negative confession.  They want to highlight not what we did, what we affirm, but what we have said No to;  remember the story of the Lady and the Serpent, and how she sidestepped the whole issue of truth and authority by not saying No!!  As women especially, our job is to say no as many times as possible to our toddlers;  to the horndogs who hound us; to the thousand miserable spirits who hurl the unutterable at us on a daily basis.  

     So simple, this magickal word!!  So seldom used!!  If we want to banish evil from our world, we need to say it quite often.

     Yes I know your argument;  but Mary the Mother of God didn't say no, and neither did Mary of Magdalene, if she is indeed His wife.  We need to say no to wrong obviously and to wrong only.  Is it really that hard to figure out?  Is it Right and Good that defeat you, or is it your desire nature being so persuasive???

The Christian Reformation, the Birth of Protestantism, Giving Voice to The Divine Word 

     Luther nailed his 99 theses to the door of the church at Wittenburg, now in Germany, on October 31st, All Saints Eve, in 1517. A breath of fresh air!!

    The sun is at the karmic 29th degree of Aries in the second house;  expiation is required of the head (Aries) or the organized church, due to possessions, riches, values, and real estate.  The message is going to be carried with iron and fire as Mars is just behind the sun, both in Libra, both bad aspected in the sign of harmony and justice. This is why the Reformation was so bloody and went so badly;  it was poorly birthed.  

     Venus and Mercury in Scorpio tell us that the Mysteries have been treated like possessions, instead of like Mysteries, knowledge of the holiest kind being bartered for favors.  The moon is opposing Mercury in the eighth house;  the Moon is We The People, and in the eighth house we have become possessions.  

    How horrific the fighting, how oceanic the bloodshed, how unholy the rift in the human family!  The church Catholic has a lot to answer for;  glad I won't be in the popes' shoes at the Gate!



The Nag Hammodi texts were discovered in December 1947; the world entered a great period of discovery, redemption and promise!

Cherish life,  do not kill

Harm it none do what you will

Heart and soul, the peaceful way

Aware of what you do and say

Love and heal do your best

Careful what you manifest

Your true path your spirit knows

The spiral sacred garden grows Love and light

Forgiveness belongs to Pisces, to the feet; in forgiving we shed the old dust and tread a new path.
