Nuit of the Milky Way
The Alchemical Journeys of the Questing Twins

Introduction, The Southern Gateways:
Rites 4, 5 & 6 of Cancer, Leo & Virgo

The Apprentices of Alchemy, Aiden and Elaine, in the second stage of their mystical journey, are expected to combine the water of Cancer with the fire of Leo, and so produce harmony through the earth of Virgo.

How strange! Only by receiving inspiration for these rites, have I realised the difference between Patriarchal law and the incoming “feel” of the Goddess. To put it dreadfully simple, in law we have the Prosecutor, the Defending Counsel and the verdict, either punishment or freedom. You have two countries, our own and our enemy. We fight. Someone wins by killing the most people. The victor proclaims that good has conquered evil. In ideals, we have socialists versus capitalists. If the socialists win, they have been known to “purge” their opponents. If the capitalists win – you starve, as the Irish once did. The worst offenders are religious people. I loved a dialogue in a funny “Robin Hood” USA film. One mediaeval fellow says to another: “Why doesn’t Prince John go on a crusade and kill and rape the Paynims like King Richard?” The other fellow ponders and then says: “I don’t suppose he’s a religious sort of a man.”

The most exciting adversarial battle is now taking place, I am assured, between men and women. Since women have got the vote and drastically limited family obligations – men – yes, “nice young men” are killing themselves. They had lost their role. Many who deplore fox-hunting are hunting down recalcitrant males arrested for every sort of depravity against women and children. We women are “victims”, rather an enfeebling position to be in.

The alchemical answer brought through the Mysteries of Isis, and other transforming Goddesses, comes from the Motherhood of the Goddess. We honour the divinity in all that is. We combine diverse elements through the harmony of Universal Divinity.
