Bee symbolism is sensational. Run a search on bee symbolism or goddess & see how weird & beautiful they are: I have found an ancient Minoan bee goddess, that they are linked to Aphrodite as hives are hexagonal (like a pentagram, the orbit of Venus) on the inside, the esoteric origins of the Queen Bee…
Oh and Napoleon was bee-mad, had bees on his scent flagons, embroidered on his silk dressing gowns & some say the Fleur de Lys is linked to bee symbolism.
Bee crop circles. Bee everything. Some say bees navigate via tiny crystals embedded (naturally) in their brain. Is this true or did I dream it?
And, a brief scientific fact, the promiscuity of the Queen Bee ensures the safety and health of the whole hive.
I think maybe Virgo could benefit from the Bee as their symbol…?
And – I really have to stop researching bee-ology soon – the names Melissa and Deborah are linked to ancient bee priestesses. Melissa means Queen Bee…I am also taking bee pollen as apparently is like super-food of nature. It is totally the nicest supplement i have ever tasted.
And this quick-to-read New Yorker piece by Noah Baumbach is absolutely hilarious: Buzzed
