In a previous post about logos with stars on top, the Anheuser-Busch logo was compared to the familiar imagery found on the dollar bill. While on the subject of stars on top, strange brews and stars on bucks, here's a logo that may be even more familiar to you!
Stars on bucks? Hey - Starbucks! Another star on top logo! Note the two additional stars in the logo, flanking. Again, Horus presides, high and central in the crown, Osiris and Isis are each honored at his side.
Oh no! Not Starbucks! Really? Yes, but one look at their logo probably alerted your suspicion.
The corporate headquarters in Seattle, WA is a clock tower building. You have been paying attention to what I've been writing about clocks and clock and bell towers, right? The star and crown of the goddess is exalted high above. More dots to connect!
Usually clock towers and such have gargoyles and similar figures keeping watch, and the one in Seattle follows the trend, doesn't it? Examples abound! Consider the iconic Big Ben in London with its corner-guard demons posted above and below the clock's head. More famous examples are found in Canada's Peace Tower in Ottawa (reported to have about 370 gargoyles, grotesques, and friezes) and Toronto's Old City Hall, pictured below left.
The star and horn-crowned goddess seen peering out over Seattle from her exalted perch compare to another icon, of "Our Lady" Notre Dame, the cathedral from which exalted perch this horn-crowned relative watches over Paris. Image, below right.
The guy behind Starbucks is Howard Schultz. Starbucks had been launched in 1971 with three partners. Schultz came onboard in 1982. Searching out the history of the goddess reveals the presence of Hermes himself!
In 1986, Schultz independently launched a new coffee bar chain called Il Giornale. In 1987, his Il Giornale chain purchased Starbucks, rebranding the Il Giornale outlets as Starbucks. The logo Schultz had chosen for the Il Giornale brand features Hermes! If you're not convinced from the poor quality graphic here that it's really Hermes the messenger god, consider that "Il Giornale" means "The Newspaper" in Italian!
When Schultz adapted the "Starbucks" name and sea nymph brand imagery, even though he traded in his Hermes branding, he didn't lose much if anything in the way of occult influence.
The featured goddess of Starbucks is often referred to as a siren, but, to be technically correct, the graphic image is that of a sea nymph. Because the sirens had formerly been sea nymphs (prior to being transformed by Demeter), you'll soon discover how the brand is actually leveraging both siren and sea nymph features!
Since the devil's scheme involves mating the gods with the mortals, the goddess-as-sea-nymph is an important association. The image clearly presents a sea nymph. The Starbucks logo mermaid is in a mating pose, and the three sirens were not known to mate. The mermaid has a crown, and the sirens did not rule. The mermaid has no bird features, but the sirens did; a feature that was accurately represented during the Beijing Olympics' rather infamously slighted London ceremony. As the sea nymph is presented in a more than suggestive pose, the essential sexual dynamic of the brand that had been lost when the image of the phallic god Hermes was traded in was regained.
The importance of identifying the Starbucks goddess as a siren comes to light when the name of the company is taken into consideration.
The "Starbucks" name was taken from the classic American novel, Moby-Dick (1851 - Herman Melville). The first mate on Captain Ahab's whaling ship, Pequod, was named "Starbuck." The novel is famous for its use of symbolism and metaphor. The three partners who chose the Starbucks name and siren image for their enterprise must have had a similar penchant for symbolism, shared too by Schultz, it seems. At the novel's conclusion, Starbuck drowns in the sea, suffering the fate of mariners who encounter sirens! You see, the Starbucks are the customers, doomed mariners, all! (Excepting Odysseus, who triggered their demise. Yes, there's something of a messianic type here.)
Yes, YOU are the doomed mariner, Starbuck (if some have their way). This explains why the corporation is opening establishments called "Hear Music" Coffeehouse! Get it? The mariners of old were lured too close to the deadly rocks by the siren's irresistible song. The mortal mariners would hear music, then die. This is "the coffeehouse experience," the reason why they have the focus on music in their stores and the partnership with Apple!
"Starbucks has agreed to a partnership with Apple to collaborate on selling music as part of the "coffeehouse experience". In October 2006, Apple added a Starbucks Entertainment area to the iTunes Store, selling music similar to that played in Starbucks stores. In September 2007 Apple announced that customers would be able to browse the iTunes Store at Starbucks via Wi-Fi in the US (with no requirement to login to the Wi-Fi network), targeted at iPhone, iPod touch, and MacBook users. The iTunes Store will automatically detect recent songs playing in a Starbucks and offer users the opportunity to download the tracks." (Starbucks - Partnership with Apple)
Some will see the music connection here and begin to see a parable in the coffeehouse experience and in the siren/mariner relationship. Some will ponder things like audio waves, frequency generators, the mark of the beast transformation, bells, crystalline DNA, resonance, harmonics, etc. Some might even begin to piece together how "The Iron Giant" occult movie put a subtle highlight on the caffeine pharmakeia scene, where jazz was playing loudly in Dean's crazy pad, who was a "Greenwich Village coffeehouse" kind of beatnik. When you connect dots, dots, and more dots, this strange brew begins to present a pretty clear testimony, doesn't it?
There are many kinds of threats we're exposed to today. The Bible presents one that really underlies the others, deception. This is why I continue to expose such things as this, even in the midst of the waxing din of dire news.
I will close with one observation to keep this in context.
12) Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God.
13) But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
