Capricorn Radio

I was recently interviewed by Heather Elizabeth Osborn and Edward James Swager for their Capricorn Radio Program, and really enjoyed the range of subjects we discussed, which included the sacred honey bee, Atlantis, and even why Noah was found naked and passed out in his tent after the great flood.

    Fantastic interview with Heather and James on Capricorn TV. I love the show and just recently found it and I am very grateful to find your work through their interview with you.I have been a student of arcane and esoteric subjects for many years and your studies and awesome. I am particularly interested in the “Bee Goddess” and its implications. If it is possible I would like to learn more and ask questions of you about this subject. I will be getting your book to get p to speed on what you have to offer.

        Thank you Andrew for your quick reply! My first question would be focused to the use of the bee and the bee hive as a symbol in the alchemists and hermetic and later masonic texts and woodcuts of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. In my studies I have come across very little that would even slightly point in the direction of the “Bee Goddess” and other related iconography that you eluded too.The closest any of them seems to come is to refer to the “industrious” nature of the bee and the symbolism of “working together” for the common good, this is mostly from the masonic rituals I am familiar with. Do you think that this is because most of the esoterics of the period were purposeful in their mis-representation of the knowledge? Or could it be that the “scholars” have been so far off the path that they wouldn’t have a clue to begin with? I suspect it may be a little of both. Most modern scholars and masonic or hermetic students I am familiar with have never even made the connection with the “Goddess”. It is just too far out of their psyche and programming to think about it. I am very excited and interested in many of these areas of study and I spend many hours of my spare time (most of it, actually) studying arcane and esoteric information. I appreciate you taking the time to answer me about these things.

        Regards,

          Thank you Mark. I am not surprised you have not found more direct references to Bee Goddesses. It is a very ignored and overlooked aspect of history. Take for instance Egypt, where the Land of the Bee was occupied by the King whose title was Beekeeper and who kept a picture of a Bee in their royal signature. This fact has been virtually ignored, let alone any exploration into why this is the case. Have you had a look at my 3 essays into the Bee and the lost tradition of its veneration? You can read it <a href="http://andrewgough.co.uk/articles_bee1&quot; rel="nofollow">here</a>. There are others as well.And the best material is in my lectures, as I have not had a chance to write the whole story down just yet. You can find some of them <a href="http://andrewgough.co.uk/tv-film/&quot; rel="nofollow">here</a>. Thank you again for your interest in this field of study.Best.Andrew

    Hi Andrew,

    I recall that you mentioned that Cybele was identified with a meteorite like stone that feel from the sky’s. Also that it was taken by the Romans to Palatine Hill for a period during the Carthaginian wars. I have found just a few references to this story of the meteorite, but I am unfamiliar with the Roman story and the later references of the early Muslims taking it to Mecca. You also alluded to her being described as the “Old Woman”. Can you direct me to some of your sources? I have been compiling a small encyclopedia of sorts, about hermetic philosophers, early mystic church fathers, alchemists and astrologers. I have wanted to include a section about “Sybils”, which are obviously the female oracles and related to some of what you shared in your interview, but the historic references are very difficult to find. In particular I am trying to identify some of them by name and to write a little about them, but the histories are hard to find so far. Maybe some insight from you can point me to the right track. The histories are full of male references to mystics and wise men, but many of the women, except for mythological archetypes are a bit harder to identify. Maybe Heather Osborne could point me in the right direction too. I appreciate your indulgence of my questions.

    Regards,

    Mark D.

      Mark hi. Thank you again. With respect to the story of Cybele, please do check out this article.

      And feel free to email me anytime. Editor@thehereticmagazine.com is probably the best.

      Thank you again.

      Andrew
