The 21st of December is less than a week away, when many will invoke the name of Cernunnos as they perform the rituals being planned for this long anticipated event. This horned god whose invocations are familiar to practicing witches is most commonly represented as a male deer with antlers. I believe the Lord is now highlighting for me some signs of the present worship of Cernunnos because of his role in this season of gateway opening ritual magick.
Most of the focus of attention on this date is due to the long count Mayan calendar. It's most notable as the very rare turn of an epoch, a fact that means it overshadows the Pagan celebrations of the winter solstice that are merely annual. Yet, the gods who receive honor and worship by those of Pagan “denominations” are the Mayan gods, those ancient gods who serve their fallen master according to assigned rank and function. These are the principalities and powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and the spiritual wickedness in high places of Ephesians 6:12. Among them is Cernunnos, the horned god known by some to be equivalent to Osiris, whose counterpart is Isis, and also such as Pan and Hades. The horned God is “born at the winter solstice, marries the Goddess of the Moon at Beltane and dies at the summer solstice. Worshipped all over Gaul, he is identified as Herne the Hunter in Great Britain.” (Beltane is a cross-quarter day, marking the midpoint between the spring equinox and summer solstice.)
Cernunnos is getting a lot of visibility today through Skyfall, the record setting movie in the 007 franchise. Skyfall is the childhood home of James Bond. On that Scottish country manor stands two pillars that flank the entry to the mansion. Atop the one that bears the name, Skyfall, stands a statue of a stag, as you see in this image. This is the land of the Celts and their Druidic priesthood. The stag is the image of their primary male god, Cernunnos. His worshipers claim that he presides over the veil between the worlds, dimensional doorways, the ancient dolmens and barrowsídhe. Long burial mounds and graveyards are where his presence is typically sought. The graven image exalted at the gateway to the Skyfall manor is a fitting monument to Cernunnos. The estate features a hilltop mansion, a chapel and graveyard.
The name Skyfall seems well chosen to honor Cernunnos. In this season, some of those who point to December 21 fear it as the end of the world or as marking some great apocalyptic event. This can be compared to the children's tale of Chicken Little, who ran about proclaiming, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!” Rather than seeing this title as attempting to make a mockery, however, it speaks loudly to me of how the sky itself is falling, literally falling to earth as the veil between the realms is made thin. This is the work of Cernunnos who presides over the gate.
The attributes of Cernunnos align very closely with Hermes aka Mercury, the god the Lord Y'shua has identified to me as the primary facilitator of Horus as the coming Beast incarnation of the Devil. Hermes is a psychopomp, guide and escort of the dead who figuratively has the visa for passage over into the underworld, an ability and role distinctly attributed to Cernunnos. The artifacts of the worship of Hermes we call Hermai were found at boundaries and intersections. The stag at the Skyfall manor entry might be considered a Celtic variant of the Herma, which were sometimes simply piles of stones like you'll see in the movie surrounding the pillar. Hermes/Mercury is often lifted up high, and so it is that the stag was lifted up high on that pillar.
Hermes was a phallic god whose favor was sought for fertility, and likewise is Cernunnos a fertility god that many men worship for the exaltation of virility.
Hermes, the god of shepherds, wields aloft the caduceus, the eye-mazing instrument by which he leads men where he wills. Cernunnos is acclaimed as the Shepherd of Goats, who is invoked for protection by many witches as they wield the ritual knife (athame) while practicing magick.
Cernunnos is often pictured with a purse of coins, like Hermes, the god of commerce, who is often pictured with his purse.
I see the popular naming of Cernunnos in ritual magick as another link to Hermes. Aliester Crowley spilled some of the beans on the magickal practices of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a practical Hermeticism claimed to be the basis for much of the Cernunnos invoking Wicca and Thelema witchcraft.
I believe there is a reference being made in the title Skyfall to the fallen angels, who fell from heaven to earth. Betrayal and revenge is a strong theme of the movie. I believe there is a very real sense in which some in the sky are falling in our day, in the season of the coming of the son of man, just as it was in the days of Noah. Vengeance is in their hearts as they plan a counter to what was done to them at the great flood, when they were purged from the face of the earth. There are parallels here with another recent movie featuring another rendition of Cernunnos.
The Avengers, the latest Marvel comic adaptation featured the horned god Loki, a god of magick. Akin to Cernunnos and Hermes, he wielded a crooked wand or shepherd's staff. This weapon enchanted those he touched with it, converting them into his own slaves. This shepherd came through a portal and seized the door's control mechanism, thereby presiding over the doorway between the worlds. Cernunnos. This brother of Thor is as Hermes, brother of Horus. The cube of the Marvel universe is central to the plot of The Avengers. It's referred to as the tesseract, the hyperdimensional cube that is itself the portal control mechanism.
While some will insist this is all fictional entertainment, I have come to know better than that, and accept that others know the well hidden truths behind the tales and leverage the willing ignorance of most for their gain.
The myth or legend from which Loki comes identifies another god as the keeper of the dimensional bridge, Heimdallr. He is pictured as a god with a horn and/or a horned god. His appointed duty is to preside over the Bifröst or rainbow bridge, acting as a sentry controlling traffic between Asgard (realm of the gods) and Midgard (earthly realm). Again, Cernunnos.
This illustration from an 18th century Icelandic manuscript pictures him as one most would readily identify as Hermes or Mercury, a connection I made earlier.
CERN is the familiar name of the European Center for Research in Particle Physics. Since 1994, one of their major facilities in Geneva has hosted a 2m tall graven image of the Indian deity Shiva Nataraja, the Lord of Dance. Shiva is Cernunnos. They are one. CERNunnos! Every night, CERN gives honor to the working of this god as the shadow of his graven image is projected upon building 40. Discoveries and decisions are made and announced there that pertain to the LHC particle accelerator and record setting collision generator. CERNunnos.
The Occult aspects of the CERN logo that present a potent combination of ritual sodomy, eye of Horus and 666 imagery are not present by mistake.
Cernunnos is worshiped as the overseer of the door to the other world, and those of us who recognize the LHC as a stargate can connect the dots here to see CERNunnos, still presiding over the veil between the realms.
As you can see from the schedule found here (LHC 2012 Schedule) and confirmed here (Wrapping it up on the Higgs boson), the LHC is officially offline now so the physics does not appear to be a factor in whatever the 21st will bring. Many of the workers will have respite from the burden of labor in scientific realm, freed to attend more fully to the season's ritual magick as the Pagans compelled to participate invoke Cernunnos according to custom.
It is customary in Pagan traditions to conduct rituals on the nights of the full and new moons. In some, before casting a magick circle, water and salt are each “blessed.” The High Priestess blesses the water then the High Priest blesses the salt. This is done using the tip of their athame (ceremonial knife) while pronouncing the “blessing” in the names of Cernunnos and Aradia (or Isis), which is to say, by their authority. When the High Priestess then uses her athame to cast the circle, she blesses and consecrates it in those same names. During this ceremony, the High Priest speaks the Great God Cernunnos Invocation. Either before that, or perhaps before the Witches’ Rune, he may lead a chant that thrice names the entities Azarak, Zamilak, Cernunnos and Aradia. Clearly, Cernunnos is a primary deity invoked to preside over this magickal space between the worlds, a transdimensional interface.
Will Cernunnos be invoked during the winter solstice that celebrates his birth into the world? Absolutely! Mayan Priests are not the only worshipers who will be actively working to open the stargates.
The esoteric viral video produced by Heliofant featured the casting of a spell in a scene I addressed back in late July. I blogged about this Part 1 and Part 2 of "I, Pet Goat II" - Golden Magick Circle, as a segue for the evidence of sorcery during the ceremonial London Olympics. As you can see in this image, a leaping stag is featured on the wall to our upper left. It is the sign of Cernunnos, presented in the context of a magic circle.
The magic circle is a witness to the video producer's knowledge of ritual magick. Other elements in that scene demonstrated the familiarity an adept would have with Illuminati SRA practice and intent.
The video opens with this picture of the goat you see here. You might associate it with the Goat of Mendes and Baphomet, but it must also be identified with Cernunnos, the horned god. The goat magickally summons the blocks of the letters in the opening title sequence. Cernunnos is the god of many practitioners of ritual magick.
Cernunnos is matched to a goddess named Aradia as or Isis. She is a goddess of magick, and her male counterpart, Cernunnos, is a god of magick. The Internet Book of Shadows offers a version of the Great God Cernunnos Invocation that twice proclaims him as the Shepherd of Goats. I believe the viral video is a tribute to Cernunnos, a dramatized enactment of the Great God Cernunnos Invocation and mass programming ritual.
On the official Heliofant Vimeo page (I, pet goat II), the commentary offered about what it means is brief: “A story about the fire at the heart of suffering.” One expression attributed to Cernunnos proclaims: “I am the fire within your heart...The yearning of your Soul.” An illuminated Christ is pictured in a trance state, making a journey in an Anubis-headed gondola as through the underworld. He is shown with fire burning in his heart. Cernunnos.
The Mayans famously cut the beating heart out of the chest of a sacrificial victim, an act of worship demanded by their god that offered to the worshiper a charge connected with vampirism.
When Walt Disney produced the animated classic Bambi in 1942, it seems a pretty safe bet he had something truly magickal in mind, in the most literal sense. Bambi's father, a mighty stag, was known as The Great Prince of the Forest, and so too was Bambi, after him. Cernunnos!
Bambi is named among the Top 25 Horror Movies of all Time, by Time magazine. Yes, really. Disney knew the value of terrorizing young children when conducting the business of mass programming, who traumatized multiplied millions for life.
While I'm on the subject of Bambi, I have to wonder if the political authorities are going to add Bambi's mother to the list of victims being used to manipulate the public. They must more aggressively strip the guns from the hands of those who would use them for self-preservation. Regular readers of this blog should understand I'm not rallying here for self-preservation. It should be said that “gun control” is about population control. It's not coming - its already here. It's just becoming less easy to ignore. Survival should not be our focus, but rather obedience to the Lord Y'shua.
Another “Bambi” is pictured at the close of the official video for Katy Perry - E.T. ft. Kanye West. As you see in these images, Katy was transformed by some form of sex magick with the E.T. She is pictured as a chimera in the form of a half-doe, a daughter of Cernunnos.
I believe it can be said that the entire male enhancement and virility product industry is something of an homage to the horned god, Cernunnos, the exaltation of “horny.” The common reference to a stag party refers to a man attending without a female escort. Stag is also a reference to something pornographic like a stag movie.
According to Occult or SRA calendars, the winter solstice is for some a time of human and / or animal sacrifice, but for many more full attention is given to a full spectrum of sex magick rituals. During this season when you see or hear about reindeer and elves, think Cernunnos. Also, Yule logs and Yuletide carols, candles and Mistletoe, these and the fragrant wreaths are linked to the tradition of honoring Cernunnos at his birth.
