Thank you for posting this. I hope everyone who prays will join me in praying for peace for Syria and the entire region. The Pope is holding a prayer vigil this week in Vatican city and he invited everyone of all faiths to join in either in Vatican square with him, or in our own countries. Prayer may sound silly to atheists, but The Intention Experiment and other scientific research has shown that it does produce measurable results. The research also showed that the more people who prayed or meditated, the greater the effect. Also the more specific the focus the better it worked. So I am praying for peace and healing for Syria, and that the people learn to listen to and respect one another across differences so they can work together to resolve their problems. I am praying that all black ops and other manipulators who stir up trouble will be made powerless and removed from the area do the people can heal their circle together. We are not powerless pawns to the “leaders” we are all leaders. We all have the power to choose peace and a better future for all.
Thank you for posting this. I love folk and faery tales. This one is interesting as an origin tale. It seems to be a revisionist tale from a later group of settlers than the original inhabitants of the island-tho of course the Celts were latecomers so it makes some sense. Most of the Celtic tales I’ve read give lists of the peoples who lived there before them.
There us famed drowned city off the western coast of Wales that would gave been inhabited about 10 thousand years before the area we now call Iran was known as Persia. Also the wooden structures on Salisbury plain that preceded the stonework at stonehenge were aldo a few thousand years before both Troy and Persia being closer in time to the earlier kingdoms in Egypt.
Having both Scottish and Welsh ancestors I can’t help mentioning that there are tales of tribal people, presumably ancestors of the wold blue folk who so frightened Hadrian; -) who lived in Scotland and nearby ( there was more land when more ocean was ice) during the ice age. Much of the kand between Britain and Denmark was dry land during much of the ice ages. Like many other areas since drowned by rising seas, new research is uncovering evidence of human settlements in undersea sediments.
I did always wonder why tge horse people chose to leave their rich areas like Hallstat to invade the western isles. Nasty wuzards turning your dragons into frolicking wee fairies would certainly qualify as a “there goes the neighborhood” moment tho, wouldn’t it? 😉
Thank you, Jean. Whether or not Ben always gets his facts straight he is always bizarrely entertaining. I figure it is better to see the farce we are all in now as a comedy than a tragedy. And if you can’t laugh at the Carl Hiassen’s Florida version of international political subterfuge…;-)

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi
Today is indeed a power-packed day. The Sun opposes Chiron, shining light on our feelings about ourselves and where we believe we have failed. The tendency is to be more critical of oneself – overly critical, in fact. This is always a destructive activity, but today it is even more so. Unleashing our “inner victim” leads to trouble. This is a trap, so don’t fall in.
Instead, let’s flip into the highest octave of Sun-Chiron energy – healing. If we can accept ourselves without excuses or pretense, we will have mastered the task today.
We have all the help we need behind us. The Mahavidya Shodashi takes today’s Venus opposition to Eris to free our minds from forces that restrict, contain, limit, and enslave us. Shodashi is not only drawing the line of how far the Archons can go, but she is also unveiling their activities in the light of day, making it easier for people to understand how they are being manipulated. Venus-Eris is feminine warrior energy, and the Goddess Who Destroys the Demiurge will use the energy in service to mankind.
Wise owls stay firmly grounded with the planet today, secure in the knowledge that Shodashi is on scene to rectify matters.
