There are a lot of ‘prophecies’ regarding the election of Donald Trump which have materialized in our world. Even though either party could have won (although there were underhand actions from the other side) I am giving my observational view regarding the elections which I believe could reflect some realities pertaining to the plan of the Elohim for humanity.
There are various “prophecies” and theories which connect Donald Trump with Cyrus the Great and since Cyrus was the elected/anointed king of Marduk, who was considered the King of the Anunnaki Gods, it is something that we must cover as it is related to our work here at Esophoria Mystery School and we have the responsibility to shed some light concerning this issue.
Here are some videos and links that are connected:
Let me first state some facts in order to have better understanding.
FACT 1: Cyrus the Great was the elected/anointed King of Marduk although the story was transferred as being the God of the Bible. The Babylonian Kings were anointed by the Goddess Ishtar which is the force that the Jews were identifying with Shekinah and she is the dove and the Holy Spirit which is said to have anointed Jesus.
FACT 2: The whole concept of the Mashiach/Messiah/Anointed/Christ is of Babylonian origin and is known in the mysteries of all traditions and even though the whole subject is very simple, I will make an in depth analysis on this in a later article.
FACT 3: The Bible record about Cyrus was their own way to view the God who was OBVIOUSLY no different and none other than Lord Marduk who is also the dragon slayer God who puts order to chaos just like Yahweh and who was the originator of the tradition of Sabbath which originated from the Babylonian Sabattu.
FACT 4: The Cyrus Cylinder validates the Bible’s version from the Babylonian view of things. Yes, God took Cyrus by the hand and instructed that he free the Jews but according to the Cyrus Cylinder it was God Marduk who took him by the hand and instructed him to free all races from Babylonian enslavement and not only the Jews. This was the first declaration of human rights on Earth.
FACT 5: Abraham came from Ur in Babylon and it is he who gathered various peoples from various Babylonian tribes to create the Jewish people and so became the Father of the Jews. He could also be a relative of some Greek Cypriot descendant of the Phoenicians and the Greeks who in this sense could be born as the father of the Jews and the King of Israel. I am just explaining how relative is the subject of race and religion.
It is easy to understand how it came to be that Donald Trump was elected because apart from his sometimes crude nature he is an intelligent and entertaining guy who confronted and challenged those that many people worldwide wanted to be challenged and confronted. He came at a moment in history when the awakened people had become sick with the corrupted system and prayed that someone would come to stand against the elite establishment who had made themselves the gods of our world who also include the celebrities who are being worshiped although they are false idols. But the question here is if he is a real Messiah. This is why I have decided to help people to understand some things about this issue so that they will be able to have a clearer explanation about all of these “prophesies”.
If you are really interested about this subject please follow and share our work here to discover the truth together.
More articles about this issue are coming soon. If you have any questions or if you have any disagreements with the given facts please contact us to answer them in our up coming articles.
To understand the guidance from Mother Venus, it is important to be aware of a vision I was shown and the message I was given by a prophet I shall call ‘The Magician’ who is simply an archetype of the Magician card in the Tarot. The vision I was shown was a large beast that grew larger than the sun and who turned the sun black. Each part of these works is connected to the events that will unfold in 2016. Although the message you will read will initially seem to be negative it is given to you so that you gain a greater understanding of what is happening in our world right now and when you gain this understanding, you will also see how through the darkness of these days the light of love is preparing to shine through.
The Black Sun
The Magician: “Nothing is by chance; you have to know this first and foremost. There is no such thing as luck or chance as everything is created by a sequence of events that is set in motion by a cause. Moving further on swiftly because you know all of this, what you saw was the temporary death of the sun. The sun needs to descend to Earth through a small ‘death.’ The beast that you saw was the materiality of your world overpowering itself so that it has lost its mentalism in chaotic madness and it is raging through the world like a mad bull. This beast in chaos is the son and the produce of the spiritual Mother being forced into a way of being that does not suit it. I mean it has become this way because of this force and manipulation to make it a material existence which is totally against its nature. The sun, in death, descends as the Dark Lord. You must think about this because he is more terrifying than the beast for the dark ones who are forcing the imbalance on Earth for he is the light bringer. Heed my words; the dark ones, the black magicians of your world, are creating the new tree. They have created the new crown. This beast is materialism.
This much you should know. Expect more destruction. This beast, or the so called beast, is running through the divine channels of your world but it is mindless; it is a created being and it will continue to rampage more as the dark ones continue to try to force the produce of the spiritual mother into material forms. You think they do not understand that no man can command Babalon??? You think they do not understand that the more they push and defile and enforce, the more that she reverts back to her chaotic archetype??? MADNESS!!! Yet this is a planned madness. Babalon is the needed material force that keeps the balance of the formed and the unformed, the spiritual and the material. Her imbalance creates destruction. Chaos has no place on Earth once she was brought order to and manifested as the material presence of the Shekinah.
She must be let her out under divine will through the will of Eros. She is coming out now, anyway, but it must be by divine hand. This hand is the hand of Ishtar that can heal or disease and that can resurrect or kill. This is the only way to complete the Holy Pyramid of Osiris or what you like better, my lovely, the Etemenanaki of your beloved Marduk. That is right; RAISE BABYLON! Oh GLORIOUS BABYLON!!! (He laughs like a mad man.) The builders are rising. The builders are RISING! This is going to be the most exciting show on Earth for a long time. Let this aeon go out with a real bang!
Because they are forcing the spiritual mother into material forms that are created and she is falling into chaos, the Dark Lord must bring her back to order by reminding her of who she is through the Essence of Eros. He will place himself before her as a sacrifice and he will pour every last drop of his ‘blood’ into her ‘cup’ so that the seed of the sun is planted back into the material world to birth the new aeon. He must anoint her material self with his seed and baptize her with fire.”
And now onto the message for 2016 from our beloved Mother Venus:
“Many people are mistaken about the origin of light; they are either mistaken or confused. People speak about love and light as if they are two separate entities when light only exists because of love because it comes from love. When you understand that all comes from love then you will understand its true meaning.
I will be clearer. If love did not exist there would be no light because at the beginning of all beginnings, at the first of all firsts, there was love. Love came into existence long before light. Light only came into being when love chose to be conscious of itself and gave birth to light.
Light is a gift that was given to every soul in the universe that came into being through love. Light was a gift given to every entity in the cosmos because of love. When the heart learns to love then automatically then it is given light and when the heart learns to love unconditionally and understands that all is love then automatically it is given enlightenment.
I am laying down this foundation of understanding for you in order to activate light within you because without light, how can you understand the meaning of love? As Venus I am all that represents love and the child that I produce is light and this child is the light of your world.
The winter solstice in 2015 falls on a Monday and Monday is the day belonging to the moon which is also a dimension that I rule. The moon is feminine and mysterious and it can be dark and it can be light depending on which side of the Earth you reside. Now see this from another perspective; the moon can be dark or it can be light depending on which angle you are viewing it from but sometimes, as with all cycles, there are both the darkness and the light; darkness for life to begin and light to nourish it. The 25th of December will be on Friday which is the day ruled by Venus. Venus is also feminine and mysterious and its energies project love, light and wisdom.
When the sun is birthed on the winter solstice under the rule of the moon and Venus you are being told that the sun, who is also the groom and the son of the Mother, will rise through love in order to teach a new light which is a revelation regarding his Mother and his bride. The sun/son will bring into human consciousness the material manifestation of the Mother’s existence and this has been building up for many of your years until this time when utter chaos is reigning in your world.
There are so many conflicts and so many lies circulating in Earth energy consciousness and this will ultimately reach its peak. I tell you now that the time of patriarchy is coming to its end so that balance can once again be produced on Earth but this will not happen without a grand finale of turmoil and the destruction of the old order and the old structure that has coveted the consciousness of humanity for a very, very long time.
And so the cycle has reached its zero point and it has evolved to the correct divine timing for me to send my Messenger of Light, the Light Bringer, who is the seed of illumination and who will plant itself within the created Earth matrix and be given birth to by my material form, the material Mother, in order to grow a new language and distribute true Gnosis.
What is happening on Earth right now is very complex and what you can see is simply a theatrical projection of the true battle that is occurring within the astral and its dimensions which is a war between those who wish to empower mentalism and with those who wish to empower spiritualism. Remember that both the mind and spirit are needed for balance and too much of either can create chaos.
It is difficult for you right now when all that you see and hear is death and war but I advise you not to sink into fantasies where you believe that all of that which humanity is experiencing is unreal. Know that all of this occurs when the old aeon is dissolving into the new and when the new savior, the light, the son Venus, will be born as a consciousness unto Earth and all its creatures.
Stay strong and remember that each and every one of you are gods and the children of the gods living in material form and you are witnessing all that you are because you were born to live through these times. Keep strong and do not sway from your faith for this is this what empowers the glory of the divine plan to be realized on Earth.
I love you, each and every one of you and soon Mama will be home…”
We wish each of our students, clients and followers the most amazing Christmas and we are sending you blessings and light for a prosperous and peaceful 2016. We love you and we thank you for your ongoing support xxx
THE LIGHT BRINGER = 972 = OCCULT MASTER
This is the story of the Rose, the beautiful Rose that symbolizes the divine mysteries on Earth and the Venus bloodlines that were carried by the Royal Family that descended from the Great Mother herself. This is the story of how the Earth came to be, a reflection of the Venus consciousness is one of love and divine Gnosis but which came to be profaned on Earth.
This work is dedicated to the masters, High Priests and Priestesses of the past, present and future, who are mystics and philosophers, who have fought for the Rose and for her holy mysteries, those men and women who came to be known as the Saints and the Great White Brotherhood and who were and are descendents of Her. May they continue to work in her light but the safety of the shadows and may they always be as cunning as serpents but as gentle as doves.
We are heading to Venus…it IS the final countdown. And so this story begins…
The Earth was void of love and wisdom for it had forgotten its mother
So the Rose Seed descended from the Womb of Heaven and was planted in the garden that was created for her that was the reflection of Venus herself.
Within the Garden of Venus the seed took root and began to grow and flourish
Nourished by the cosmic waters of the Abzu.
As the seed grew and produced its Green leaves, Thorns and rose buds, a Queen Rose, a magnificent Matriarch that governed the other smaller roses, grew on the tree and was mightier, stronger and powerful than the others.
Upon her head was placed the crown of stars and she was given the authority to reward this crown to those who tended to her roots, loved and cared for her leaves, understood her thorns and handled her delicate petals with great tenderness and affection.
Because of her existence the dawning of the first day came into consciousness and the Queen Rose felt the rays of the sun caress her and make love to her and the love she felt for the sun made her bloom and as she opened her petals in sensual rapture from the heart of her was born an essence which is the Essence of Eros.
The Rose Tree grew with abundance, its quintessence permeating the Earth and nourishing her and helping her to flourish. This was the Tree that Venus planted, she who is known by many names.
The Garden of Venus had four gates that were called West, East, South and North and each could be used as an exit but only the East gate could be used to enter. Guarding each gate was a servant of the Rose but the East gate was guarded by the King of Venus who was her beloved son and consort. No one could enter the Garden of Venus which was the sacred 888 entrance to the Womb of the Mother unless they came with a pure heart and a genuine love for the Rose.
Then it was time to create heroes out of men and so the Queen Rose manifested as a woman, born from human seed and egg but through the process of the Hieros Gamos. This woman was the incarnation of Venus on Earth, her mortal self in matter, representing the rose and the East gateway to the rose garden could be entered through her, through her 888. This was the mirror image of the Queen Rose and the Holy Grail which is the Omega Womb. It is within the Omega Womb that those wishing to enter into the Rose Garden must sacrifice their ‘blood’ and ‘life-force’ for they must die to themselves in order to be resurrected within this very womb and be reborn into their goodhood.
To ensure that the mysteries of the rose remained sacred and protected, a veil was placed in front of her so that no mortal man could see her face. That is, no man who had not submitted himself and sacrificed himself totally to her and to her service and who had not been resurrected to his godhood, for unless he submits to her and forsakes his beastly, Earthly nature, he shall never see her face.
Yet sadly, the black magicians whom we know as the fallen or the Igigi knew the way to force the gate of the Garden and partook in the mysteries by force. Because of this the Rose had to be taken to safety so that she was protected and made invisible from the eyes of the fallen Watchers.
The Queen Rose has manifested many times throughout history and we have known her as Helen of Troy, the Helena of Simon Magus, Mary Magdalene and many other incarnations. Each are the Venus Goddess in her forms such as Inanna, Ishtar, Aphrodite, Astarte, Asherah an so on. Along with her manifests the essence of her son Eros who is her consort, the sun and the King of Venus.
The Venusian Rose bloodline is not inherited as actual blood; the Venusian Rose bloodline is carried by souls who are the avatars of her children and the gods, who return to Earth in service to Venus and the divine plan for it is the SOUL that brings her light and these souls that have chosen and been chosen to serve her and teach her mysteries in order to restore the balance and to reconnect humanity and Earth consciousness with the true frequencies of Venus. These are Venus Knights and Dames, lovers of Sophia and the restorers of the divine laws on Earth.
For those of you not familiar with the Gematria, it is a system that was given to the Babylonians by the gods and this system assigns numerical value to a word or phrase in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values are connected and share the same meaning and energy. Numbers are a language and it is believed is a language of the gods. This system was and is used by the initiates of the mysteries schools to discover the hidden meaning of the names of the gods as well as write in result numbers as a code which only other initiates could understand. It is a language that we use very often in our articles and channeling’s on Esophoria and it is a system we use regularly to decode certain works given to us by the gods. So below I will show you an example so that you understand how to read the word, number and its corresponding words and also understand why the 888 is so sacred and offers such protection and wisdom.
GODDESS ISHTAR (starting words) = 888 so here we have calculated these words which give us the results of 888. Now we look for corresponding words or phrases which also have the value of 888.
GODDESS ISHTAR = 888 = DIVINE MATRIX so here you can see how GODDESS ISHTAR and DIVINE MATRIX both have the value of 888. Below you will see the whole sequence for 888 and other result numbers relating to this work with each phrase equaling to a numerical value and so therefore sharing the same energy and having a scientific and divine relation to each other.
We do not want to just throw numbers at you; we are a school so it is so important for you to understand exactly what these numbers mean when we are publishing them as well as teaching you an ancient system which can help you to reveal and understand the divine coding of Earth and universal consciousness.

The Return of the Masters
The Rose Ashram of the Ascended Masters
The Sigil of Ishtar
As Above, So Below
The Illumination of Eros
Channeling’s from Goddess Babalon
Art: Andrea Matus deMeng
The tears of the soul cry through the naked eyes of the wise,
For only the brave shows the truth of how a spirit
Can climb the walls of insanity only to
Be pushed down once again into the pit of
As the Angels circle above my heart opens
Like a lotus…hungry for their light
To guide each petal to its destination
But nothing lasts for ever in this linear world.
Only the thoughts of the sacred
Live longer than the mountains.
But one day they too shall fall down
Into the ocean of nothingness.
The hum of life springs back into play
Reminding us to breathe in the acrid smoke
Of life that deems only worthy to those
Who have the light outlook on the world.
We can be drifters if we do not tether our soul
To the hooks of the divine.
Like a fish we are reeled back in so many times
To witness the glory of what we could be…
If only there weren’t any fears, or worries
Or anxiety…if only sleep would come
To refresh the mind and grant it
Follow the rules the intuition and hope that
Your ears were clean enough to hear the right words.
Hope…faith…belief…without them we are like
Leaves in the wind being blown into the hurricane of
The not knowing.
I take the hand of guidance and allow it to take me onto
Roads unknown…and i will not fear.
I will let blessed hands cover my eyes so I may only see with my heart
Whose eye is wide and thick lashed.
Carry me like I have carried others…no bargains here
Just hear my prayers
-By Helen Demetriou
Eros, who is the son of Venus, is the masculine mirror of his mother. This mirror, you will see, plays a very important role in this teaching. Firstly though, we must understand the meaning of the ‘mirror’ and how it applies to both Eros and to his mother who gave her son the mirror that belonged to her.
The son of Venus is a very complicated archetype which needs wisdom coupled with understanding to grasp the concept of his essence for you see Eros, who is globally known as Jesus and Lucifer, the manifestations of the Christ, is the intellectual force of Venus who inspires humans to unite with the soul (Psyche) who is the feminine mirror of Venus.
The goal of all humans is to unite with the soul but it is also important for them to understand who they are in order to do this. Eros, famous for his mirror, uses this to reflect the innermost self back to humans in order for them to deal with whatever needs to rise to the surface of their conscious from the subconscious as it is only through the willingness to work through their light and shadows can they enter a state of illumination which is of course Venus because she is the Mother of the Mysteries and the illuminator of the souls of men. Here we can understand how Eros is the distributer of this light in its intellectual form yet because he is ‘Eros’ which is the Greek words for ‘(divine) love’ he aims straight for the heart of all beings and attempts to assist them in uniting their heart with their mind and the divine nous which is the divine mind.
So it is said that Eros is the binder and medium who binds all forms together as one, igniting the divine desire in man to unite with the soul and to unite with the heart, so that he lives a Thelemic life, a life where all senses are united as one and in alignment with the divine will.
Eros represents the true light of illumination and the astral light which is a false light which he uses as a veil over the sacred teachings in order to confuse those whose intentions are to abuse them, profane them and use them for their own gain. These types are anchored to the material and they create misshapen idols out of their illusions. These types are attracted to the astral light like moths to a flame because their ego desire is all that is illusion because they enjoy the falsity of the world which exists on a superficial level.
Even when these types are shown the true light they refuse to look at it because it forces them to really see themselves in the mirror of Eros and they cannot deal with what they see. And so, they choose the astral light, the false light, which enables them to live in their superficial fantasies but more deadly than this, the reflection of the abyss.
Venus his mother who we also know as Inanna, Ishtar, Aphrodite, Isis etc empowers her son to reflect her soul through her mirror which Eros holds. Being as she is the Holy Spirit, the intention of this action is to awaken a person’s conscious to the truth regarding the immortality of their divine soul and godhood.
The mirror of Eros does not lie and it can reduce a person to a humbled state when they see the truth of their reflection. Yet without this truth, how can a person confront their ego and begin to change their ways? From this begins the inner process of transmutation, of alchemically transforming negative aspects of their shadow into light and submitting their beastly selves which is their ego to the soul who is Venus. This action represents the release of a persons psyche from this world so that they are not longer apart of and manipulated by illusion of the false matrix of the Earth. It is through Eros who is the torch bearer and the guide that leads the confused through the darkness of illusion that a person reaches union with the soul and is then saved.
It was during one night where I was receiving various revelations that my Mother Inanna (Venus) explained to me that no person can know wisdom if they do not unite with love, that illumination, wisdom and understanding can only be achieved through love; everything is about love and those who do not find this divine beauty and enter this state of divine love will not understand the mysteries or the teachings of the gods. It is very difficult to explain because this inner process is something you feel and understand but it is not something you can express in human words.
It is then that a person is accepted into the Rose Ashram of the masters, they who also aligned with the heart of the Rose who is both Eros (anagram) and his mother. It is a divine matrix, a reflection of Venus projected from the mother herself. It is important to learn the difference between Eros the son and light-bearer and Eros the essence which is love and a consciousness in itself. The mysteries then begin to unveil themselves and they are no longer hidden for the eyes of the soul now see through the physical eyes of the person who is saved by Eros (love the essence) and they are no longer mind controlled by the false frequencies of the world.
We know that Aphrodite began in the consciousness of civilization as Inanna who is the personification of Venus. From the first writings in history we learn that the Morning and Evening star is the Goddess Inanna and it is important to make her functions and attributes clearer. She was and still IS known as the Light Bringer and the one who grants access to the mysteries. Her priestesses in ancient times became the embodiment of Inanna and by doing this, had to be trained in the mysteries and not only in sacred sex.
Those who are also ‘students’ of the occult claim that the Morning Star is Lucifer and a male energy, completely dismissing that it is the Goddess who is the original holder of this title. The truth is, it is Lucifer who comes from the Goddess and it is Lucifer who is the son of Venus and her male manifestation. The men who follow the left hand path and who claim to honour or worship the Goddess are still just as patriarchal as those on the right side because most of their organizations are made up generally by men. So, of course, they deliver Lucifer to the world as being a completely MALE energy, choosing to totally ignore the Goddess and her being the one who brings illumination and the essence of Eros as well as his true function with regards to the soul and mind uniting.
Through time the energy of the Venus Goddess has been ‘used’ during ritual to empower the workings of magicians and priestesses. The priestess invokes the Goddess so that she takes into her the essence of the Goddess and the magician or mason etc plays the role of the king or her consort. This was a fertility rite or crowning ceremony that was performed in ancient time where the high priestess of one of the Venus Goddesses and the king replayed the role of the Hieros Gamos between Inanna or Ishtar or Aphrodite etc and her husband, the dying and resurrected god. Yet this was not a loveless union; the high priestess became the mistress of the king and they shared a bond of true love for each other. Their union was for a common cause that was not entirely selfish but was for the good of humanity and was not for personal gain as kingship was delivered from ‘Heaven’ and only the Goddess could crown the king through the divine marriage. The other most important reason for the divine marriage was to produce Eros = LOVE = and this love was reflected onto humanity to bring peace, unity and community.
As well as bringing fertility to the land, the Courtship of Inanna was performed to bring heaven to Earth and create perfection; it symbolizes the true union between the male and female energies and the godhood or the creator of ALL; it is through this Great Mirroring that the divine energies entered Earths consciousness. Through their love making they became one mind, one soul, one body and only through this becoming one and reconnecting the two halves of a divided soul through the flesh and spirit could they achieve this.
Yet this same sacred rite is performed by two people who have no deep love for each other, at least not on the basis of a true love where two souls connect and become one. The people who use the Goddess through performing sex as means to empower their workings/spells/crafting etc are basically prostituting the Goddess and taking advantage of her energy. This is not what she stands for at all. What they are doing is not mirroring the above to the below; they are mirroring the below to the above and the energies of the abyss are entering our consciousness as the complete opposite of love/Eros.
So it is no wonder why Eros is the product of an Ero-tic union which in this case means divine love making through divine desire and not the lustful energies of the underworld which is a produce of Lilith. Sadly, many of the ancient Greek teachings depicted Eros as a mischievous cherub who would cause people to fall in love and fall into hurt and pain. They would also claim that he is responsible for lust and lustful thinking and totally profaned the attributes of Eros. They also expressed a man’s relationship with his god as something sexual and lustful when this union was bound by divine love.
As humans we desire each other sexually because this is how our human minds primitively react to the need for unity and it is difficult even to explain how once you reach a higher level of consciousness that this same desire you feel for the divine is a true desire but beyond lust or the need for physical union through sex. It is difficult also for the lower vibrating consciousnesses to understand that a sexual union with our deity is simply the merging of minds and souls and becoming the archetype and that the sexual act that takes part within and in the above is what the human language calls sexual but it has nothing to do with sex as we know it to be.
When we reach this type of level it is because we have been guided by Eros who holds his lamp and takes us to that place of understanding and he teaches us the difference between divine union with the soul and with each other physically.
Of course, physical sexual union between two adults that are joined also with Eros/love is a sacred act and even a gift, given to us to unite once again to the hermaphrodite state which enables us to re-enter Eden.
Retreating back to the stories of Eros, the ancients wrote how Eros was without meaning until he met his Psyche (soul). As Eros is the light of the mind, he was a purely mental consciousness who lacked direction until he fell in love with his soul and so he asked a favour of god Apollo:
That is when her father went to visit the oracle of Delphi to ask Apollo for an advice on what to do to find a husband for Psyche. The prophecy of the god was terrible. Apollo decreed that Psyche, dressed in black dress, should be brought to the summit of a mountain and stay there alone. The husband that was assigned to her, a winged serpent, terrible and more powerful than the gods themselves, would come up and take her for his wife.
After their marriage Psyche was in bliss by the tender love that Eros was expressing to her but saddened that she could never see the face of her husband because he only visited and lay with her during the darkness of night. And so, after discussing her sadness with her sisters, they told her that her husband must be a terrible monster and told her kill Eros with a knife and so that night Psyche took an oil lamp to guide her and shone it on the face of Eros while he was sleeping whom she saw was the most beautiful man she had ever seen.
After thanking the gods Psyche made a noise which startled Eros awake. Eros afraid, ran in terror from the room and Psyche stricken with grief at the loss of her husband went in search of her Eros.
She visited the temple of his mother, Aphrodite, to ask the Goddess of Venus to bring her son back into her arms. The Goddess Aphrodite, who is Psyche in matter, gave her three tasks that she must complete.
Tired and desperate from the tasks Aphrodite had given her to complete, Psyche fell into a deep sleep after journeying into the underworld. The gods who had been watching felt compassion for Psyche and sent Hermes to Eros to recount to him the trials that his wife had endured at the hands of his mother. Eros swiftly went to find his bride who he found in his mother’s garden.
As a wedding gift, Zeus gave Psyche the ambrosia of the gods to drink so that she could become a Goddess and immortal to remain with Eros forever.
In this story we can understand that this is the journey of the soul, searching for love and light in the darkest places. We understand that there is always divine guidance and love poured onto us yet the soul has to experience the darkness to appreciate the light and that the path to illumination is hard and tedious.
We are also taught how the mind (Eros) was not ready to face the soul (Psyche) for during this time when the mind was sleeping (unconscious), it was the soul who held the lamp and forced the mind to awaken to the soul with which the mind became scared and ran from the soul. But as we know, the soul never gives up and in order for the mind to become illuminated, the soul must first experience the mysteries in order for the consciousness to expand. It was the soul who taught this light to the mind and once the mind was consciously aware of its soul, it could no longer rebel and be afraid of union.
And so, we learn how through LOVE/EROS we are lifted to our own godhood and through this story we understand how the mind and love is bound with the soul for an eternity.
Returning to the mysteries of Inanna who is Venus, it is she that was known by the ancients to be the first deity who descended into the underworld to rescue man from materiality and who guided him back to her womb. She is the light, after all, and as her manifestation through her son, she continues to do the same thing. The road to her is littered with obstacles and distorted mirrors but with the help of the gods, faith and the light of the light bearer, we can make it back home.
It is no coincidence that she is the Goddess of love as well as the Goddess of the mysteries because it is only through pure love and divine desire can we reach illumination. Without love, the ancient texts keep their secrets hidden; without love, the veil of the astral light continues to keep the divine teachings concealed. The only way is love; love is the law and without obeying this law, illumination is only a far away star.
It is through these mysteries through history of the Mother and her son/consort, the dying and resurrected sun god, which leads us to the same mysteries that Jesus taught with his Mary Magdalene who is yet another manifestation of Venus and the hope that once again we will be blessed with the consciousness and love of Eros.
