Isis, Lady of the Holy Cobra

 

The serpent throughout history has endowed us humans with much power usually reserved for Gods, Goddesses, Kings and Queens.

In ancient Egypt it’s symbolism adorned the crowns of the most powerful Kings and Queens, especially that of the Cobra. Cleopatra from the Ptolemaic blood line in Alexandrea is often depicted with such a powerful serpent on her crown, as so were other Kings and Queens in her blood line thought to be descendant from the Gods themselves.

The Cobra is a symbol of not only mysticism, magick and majesty, but also one of great and infinite or eternal power, something the Egyptian Kings and Queens found very alluring.

It is the connection between life and death and one that represents the afterlife that links the Cobra to mysticism and the occult.

Cobra Familiar is certainly NOT for everyone, a mystical animal that usually attracts the advanced magickal practitioner, or devout students of the magickal arts, allowing them to see through the veil, assisting them to connect with chthonic Gods and other spiritual beings.

It is important that such a familiar is accepted with a pure heart, a clear mind and a ready nourished soul, as the Cobra can offer alluring prospects just to test and throw you off your path. Beware of the Cobra’s hypnotic gaze.

Once this is mastered and understood the Cobra is a profound inner teacher. As a spiritual teacher the Cobra teaches us how to pause, wait and be patient. It can be a fierce protector, teaching us how to be wise and humble.

Cobra brings out your full potential and power. It can be very empowering and somewhat intoxicating seeing this, therefore it is important that you understand that all power is to be respected and used with utmost care and for the good of all. Learn to tame your beast.

When the cobra energy is out of balance it can become egocentric and egotistical. Self illusions and delusion of power and grandeur. Many ancient Kings and Queens have fallen in this trap.

If the Cobra Familiar does appear in your life, ask yourself if you are ready to become a student and unlearn all that you have learnt only to learn all over again.

Female Druids, the Forgotten Priestesses of the Celts

 

 

 

 

 

 

In all my studies I have never heard of Female Druid Priestess. But after reading this article and thinking back over what I have learn about the ancient Celtics spiritual path and the duality of it I than wondered was this information did not come out until now. I am going to look for at least two other article  confirming what this on days and I will post the links to them. I did a thank you ritual to Bridget for pushing to get this information to us. I would like to hear what you think of this especially if you follow a Druid path.

 

In medieval Irish legends they were called Banduri or Bandorai. Their existence was confirmed by ancient Greek and Roman writers. But who were the legendary female Druids?

The Druids were the ancient religious leaders, scientists and researchers of the Celtic society. For centuries, there was a common misconception that Druids were only male. However, numerous historical records attest to the fact that there were in fact women among their ranks.

The Wise Ones of Celtic society

The term ”Druid” comes from the Indo-European word ”deru”, which means ”the truth” or ”true”. This word has evolved into the Greek term ”drus”, meaning ”oak”.

The Druids were the intellectual elite. Being a Druid was a tribal function, but they were also poets, astronomers, magicians, and astrologers. It took them 19 years to gain the necessary knowledge and skills in alchemy, medicine, law, the sciences, and more. They organized intellectual life, judicial processes, had skills to heal people, and were involved in developing strategies for war. They were an oasis of wisdom and highly respected in their society.

Roman Accounts of the Druidesses

Gaius Julius Caesar was fascinated with the Druids. He wrote that they were scientists, theologians, and philosophers, and acquired knowledge that was extraordinary. According to experts in Caesar’s writings, the great Roman leader was well aware of the female Druids. Unfortunately, most of the Roman writers ignored women in general, so it is not easy to find reference to them in historical texts. However, Strabo wrote about a group of religious women who lived on an island near the Loir River. In ‘Historia’, Augusta is a description of Diocletian, Alexander Severus and Aurelian, who discussed their problems with the female Druids.
