The Wise Blood

Rihanna GQ Medusa cover

Goddess bless Rihanna and her constant referencing of iconic feminine symbology, like everywhere.   The name Medusa means ‘sovereign female wisdom’ btw. That turning to stone schizz? Patriarchal propaganda guys.

Barbara Walker in The Womans Encylopedia Of Myths and Secrets says the story of Perseus beheading Medusa (originally a Libyan Snake Goddess) was to “account for the appearance of Medusa’s face on the shield of Athene…A female face surrounded by serpent hair was an ancient widely recognized symbol of divine female wisdom, and equally of the ‘wise blood’ that supposedly gave women their divine powers.”

I think there is more to Ri Ri than meets the eye….you don’t just go getting Isis tattoos and posing as Medusa on a whim…

Rhianna has Moon and Venus in Aries at 13 degrees. This is considered a “critical degree” as are several other points in the zodiac. She is obviously involved in the ZZ right now, no?

From Cafe Astrology:

~These are considered sensitive, and sometimes strengthening, points. If a natal planet is found in a critical degree, that planet is thought to be emphasized and to assume more power in the life of the native due to its placement~

If I recall, back when C. Brown beat her up there was something going on with that aspect but I don’t have time to check.

ABC News Australia has reported: American rapper Chris Brown has been arrested and charged with assault after a fight in Washington. Police spokesman Anthony Clay said Brown was arrested “around 4:25 (Sunday) morning (local time) in front of the W Hotel,” a chic establishment near the White House. Brown, along with a male companion, got into an altercation with a third man and the incident became violent, according to police. Brown, 24, and his companion “were arrested and charged with a felony assault”, Mr Clay said. “A victim was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries,” he said,… Read more »

Any ‘one’ can channel the goddess or should I say any woman.
It’s a free channel.
No special skills required other than knowing how to surrender.
I seek her out in everywoman. She is always there somewhere.
And as a lover she loves me like no other.
I am a priest of the goddess.
Mystic, you are such a wide clear channel of her.
Love you for that x

Was also going to say that I was not implying Mystic was not a Goddess of course…Just in case anyone got that impression…

Just that she did a post about the Kundalini some time ago and was wondering about it. I did not add in my two cents back then but witheld. As it ties in to the Medusa mythology so strongly that is why I share.

Rhianna’s no ‘coloured girl going do da do da do do’, now is she? Personally she irks me, like Miley..too much money too soon and yes yes great body, close to being wildly overexposed, but her Isis tattoo is magnificent and in a superb place to do it justice. What if it rubs off onto a baby if she breast-feeds, bubba comes face to face with Isis. Her starting time for her performances leave a lot to be desired from a professional aspect. She is not an artist i listen to or Gaga or Miley or Taylor……prefer Bonnie, Stevie, Joni,… Read more »

How did you trace your ancestry back that far?
That’s a nice story of heritage.
I was thinking to get my child’s DNA done so we can trace it.
Quite a genetic medley the kids.
Doubt there’ll be any Uncle Ptolomey – maybe Uncle Kublai Kahn, or Auntie Marie Antoinette.
Has anyone traced Gautama’s line? Didn’t be have kids pre-enlightenment?

Medusa is my all time favorite and most powerful goddess/gorgon. That’s how I found your blog searching for illustrations, paintings of Medusa for a tattoo concept. I researched my family roots on my mother’s side all the way back to Alexander the Great and the Medusa symbol on the macedonian shields. My great-uncle is Ptolemy (explains my interest in astrology and the occult, it literally flows through my blood) No wonder as a young child I was not repulsed my Medusa but felt she was misunderstood. I’ve written and performed and even painted many images of Medusa throughout my life.… Read more »

Research genealogy/family tree?
My family has a genealogy book that has been in the family for generations, plus with ancestry.com you can find other ancestors through record searches, plus libraries in England.
Plus, DNA .
I’ve been into this as a child since, it is tradition to teach the children at an early age through folk stories and fairy tales of King Arthur and melusine.
My great grand uncle King Richard the Lionheart liked to tell tall tales of being a direct descendent of melusine (freshwater French mermaid) as the son of the Devil, herself.
It’s all steeped with freemasonry and secret symbolgology.

Multiple times this year I have dreamed of snakes. I don’t have a phobia of snakes in waking life, but I do have an aversion to them as they can be dangerous. In the dreams I am never afraid of the snakes, even if other people are screaming their heads off. In the most recent dream, a snake was striking at my face and before it did, I caught it with my hand right behind the head.

sweetpea

I’d say thats a powerful dream. You are perhaps about to harness or awaken the kundalini..(so called “snake” coiled at the base of the spine).. When the Kundalini rises up three times and a half..coming to rest in the heart, one is then considered enlightened. This is why it is important to begin with the heart as one ends with the heart having all the attributes of compassion, kindness, patience, etc. These are fundamental pre-requisitsessssssssss (how the hell you spell that.. 🙂 ) But if you don’t even have those basics, then forget it, you will never be enlightened, in… Read more »

I laughed with surprise and relief – I’ve been working on balancing my chakras for so long! He also said I had strong healing energy, and when I started to ask what type of healing I would be best at (because I’ve sense that calling before), he said, “Reiki,” before I could even finish.

The most detailed book on the Kundalini is called:

~Shakti is cosmic existence as well as liberation, its most significant form being the Kundalini Shakti~ As Shakti creates all realities, then one might be able to understand why She was blamed in the Garden of Eden (the Universal Garden) for the Ego getting lost in it’s illusions. When the mind divides creation up it (loses site of Source) it gets lost and then needs someone to blame for “good and evil”…Which God said don’t eat that fruit, idiot…see? lol But, Shakti becomes the liberator from all illusions as well as having been the creator of them.

I’m always trying to understand who is winning on this planet, man camp or woman camp. Been trying to figure this out since my parents got divorced nearly 15 years ago. I’ve been fully convinced of the patriarchy, but then equally disappointed with feminine energy. Just tonight my mom reinjured my arm by throwing a tantrum over my “entitlement” to $38 of groceries. I don’t know how to understand this. Its a shame that men in her life have left her wanting so bad that this amount of money matters, but then again she has refused to embrace her power… Read more »

yikes. reinjured your arm? is that bad? are you ok? your clarity there seems like a good start. strikes me that where you say ‘i don’t know how to understand this’ you’ve almost given yourself a place to start understanding in the subsequent sentences. maybe don’t see it as a winning / losing thing but a more closely-infused power dynamic .. others here have way more developed perspectives on this than i do, maybe someone else has something to add too. but yes it’s strange, i see a lot of mothers somehow lock themselves into a sense of disempowerment that… Read more »

Cupcake

I have been thinking a lot about Medusa lately and how she is just another symbol of misunderstood feminism. Perhaps the reclaiming of such a powerful figure in popular culture is another sign that the divine feminine energy that is so needed is coming. Coming out and cannot be stopped.

Also the cutting off of her head and claiming of that energy by a man symbolizes exactly what has happened to women. The energy removed from the living body. Time to take it back.

According to some conspiracy theorists, all these celebs doing Goddess themes in their music, movies, modelling, etc are nothing but Satanic, Illuminati puppets being used for mass scale Satanic style rituals which power their misogynistic agenda. I’d rather not believe this, but I get a bit of insider info that makes me wonder sometimes… None of the celebs doing the Goddess themes strike me as particularly enlightened or spiritually inclined when I see them interviewed. I’m more inclined to believe doing the Goddess thing is more of a trendy fad than anything of depth. (A lot of mainstream trends get… Read more »

I see a lot of strong women out there that are still growing into their full potential. We arent perfect growing up(knowing everything), we all have our weak spots…Along the way, you deal with the ugly side of things – you learn and grow – that takes you to the next level of wisdom. So that is what meant by maiden, adult and crone wisdom. I think the essence of strength is there, but maturity bestows its gifts upon those that have earned it.

Given my family history and what I’ve learnt of relationships from my parents, it could so easily be my path, but I chose for it not to be. That’s my point really.

I’m not denying this shit is complicated, I’ve just been putting forward my personal view on what I view as a strong woman and what I don’t.

You could take a Jungian pscyhologist’s view point and say that regardless of her conscious intention it may show a recognition of the collective unconscious, both in the use of the imagery by Rihanna and/or her stylist, and our reaction to it. They may not know the exact origins of the imagery and may not be up to speed on the precise meaning of the imagery and/or iconography (then again they may be), but somewhere, somehow they recognise its power and use it in their own up-to-date-pop-culture way.

I think Rhianna is Pisces, which may explain abusive situations and attraction to nystic symbols?

Beyonce defines as Christian, so I’m not sure why she would willingly choose black magick symbols?

I’m not huge fans of either, but I don’t like the rubbish so called feminists write about her. Some of these comments aren’t empowering to the sisterhood either, as enlightened as people think they are….and I’be also known a number of whacked out people from all sectors of belief in my life

The old story of the devil meeting the ambitious at the crossroads at midnight so as to garner fame is ubiquitous in the art world! I suppose it is an old idea.
