Biscione

  • Biscione: "(Italian for ‘large grass snake’), also known as the Vipera (‘viper’ or in Milanese as the Bissa), is a heraldic charge showing in Argent an Azure serpent in the act of consuming a human; usually a child and sometimes described as a Moor. It has been the emblem of the Italian Visconti family for around a thousand years. Its origins are unknown. However it has been claimed that it was taken from the coat of arms of a Saracen killed by Ottone Visconti during the crusades. The biscione appears also in the coats of arms of the House of Sforza, the city of Milan, the historical Duchy of Milan and Insubria. It is also used as a symbol or logo by the football club Inter Milan, by Alfa Romeo and, in a version where a flower replaces the child, by Fininvest."

Ouroboros

  • Various notes:
    • Alternative names: Cosmic Serpent, Ourorboros, Oroborus, Uroboros or Uroborus.
    • The Ouroboros (or Uroboros) is the symbolic rendition of the eternal principles presented in the Emerald Tablet. The great serpent devouring itself represents the idea that "All Is One," even though the universe undergoes periodic cycles of destruction and creation (or resurrection). In Orphic and Mithraic symbology, the Ouroboros was called the Agathos Daimon or "Good Spirit" and was a symbol for the "Operation of the Sun." In Greek terminology, the Ouroboros was the Aion, which Herakleitos likened to a child at play. To the Greeks, the Aion (from which our word "eon" is derived) defined the cosmic period between the creation and destruction of the universe. [169]
    • Symbol of the infinite cycle of death/rebirth, creation/destruction, inhalation/exhalation, contraction/expansion.

      • Birds appear frequently in religious scenes (e.g. the Ayia Triadha sarcophagus). An individual bird is usually identified as a "{divine epiphany}" - that is, as the manifestation of a divine being (in this instance, in non-human form) - although sometimes a bird appears to be an identifying attribute of a divinity rather than an alternative form of one.

Phoenix

  • Various notes:
    • Masonic Interpretations of the Phoenix By Manly P. Hall The Secret Teachings of All Ages
    • Note what a former witch had to say regarding the occult belief in the Phoenix Bird. "The Phoenix.. is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt.. This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who they think will one day rise triumphant. This, of course, also relates to the rising Hiram Abiff, the Masonic 'christ.' [Source: Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 123] [171]
    • "In ancient Egyptian mythology and in myths derived from it, the phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird. Said to live for 500, 1461 or for 12594 years (depending on the source), the phoenix is a male bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises. The new phoenix embalms the ashes of the old phoenix in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in Heliopolis ("the city of the sun" in Greek), located in Egypt. The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible - a symbol of fire and divinity. Although descriptions (and life-span) vary, the phoenix became popular in early Christian art and literature as a symbol of the resurrection, of immortality, and of life-after-death. Originally, the phoenix was identified by the Egyptians as a stork or heron-like bird called a benu, (see Bennu), known from the Book of the Dead and other Egyptian texts as one of the sacred symbols of worship at Heliopolis, closely associated with the rising sun and the Egyptian sun-god Ra." [172]

Pelican

  • Various notes:
    • In medieval Europe, the pelican was thought to be particularly attentive to her young, to the point of providing her own blood when no other food was available... It also became a symbol in bestiaries for self-sacrifice, and was used in heraldry ("a pelican in her piety" or "a pelican vulning (wounding) herself"). Another version of this is that the pelican used to kill its young and then resurrect them with its blood (wikipedia)
      • In the occult context, the self sacrifice represent Lucifer's fall in order to enlighten humanity, ant the symbolism of the resurrection is proper of the mythological Phoenix

    • Strix (or: "striga", "stirge")
    • The Owl is in many cultures seen as a wise animal and it sees well in the dark. The 'global elite' consider themselves to have both these characteristics and claim thereby they deserve the right to rule.

Dove

  • A white dove is generally considered a sign for peace. Genesis describes the story Noah released a dove after the Great Flood in order to find land. The dove came back carrying an olive branch in its beak, telling Noah that the Great Flood had receded and there was land once again for Man. (Genesis 8:11). Among some Christiana, the dove is used as a symbol of the Holy Spirit (Mark 1:10), who appears in that form to Jesus at his baptism (Luke 3:22). Dove in the Bible
  • Columbia (goddess) is a Latin word for dove. [174]

Peacock

In modern times the peacock's strutting and feather displaying has become a symbol of pride, arrogance, and vanity. Pride of course, being one of the sins of Lucifer, (his desire to compete with God) was what caused his fall from Heaven. The cherubim are believed to have peacock feathers in their wings.

  • Various notes:
    • In Egyptian mythology the peacock tail patterns were associated with all-seeing eye - which represents the primal eye. In Egyptian mythology Argus was a traitor to Osiris. In Osiris's absence, Argus locked Isis (wife of Osiris) in his castle and then proclaimed himself king. When Osiris returned he learned of the ambitions of Argus and the kidnapping of his beloved wife. Argus had spies everywhere in the Kingdom of Osiris. A cure was placed upon Argus that from that day forward he would be a peacock and all his spies would be the peafowl's eyes. These eyes were placed in the bird's tail. [175]
    • (Greek mythology): Argus Panoptes: A fabulous being of antiquity, said to have had a hundred eyes (representing the stars of heaven). His eyes were transplanted to the peacock’s tail. He was a servant of the greek goddess Hera.
    • "In Hinduism the Peacock is associated with Lakshmi who is a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck. Similar to Lakshmi, the Peacock is associated with Kwan-yin in Asian spirituality. Kwan-yin (or Quan Yin) is also an emblem of love, compassionate watchfulness, good-will, nurturing, and kind-heartedness. Legend tells us she chose to remain a mortal even though she could be immortal, because she wished to stay behind and aid humanity in their spiritual evolution." [176]
    • "In Babylonia and Persia the peacock is seen as a guardian to royalty, and is often seen in engravings upon the thrones of royalty. In Christianity the Peacock symbolism represents the “all-seeing” church, along with the holiness and sanctity associated with it. Additionally, the peacock represents resurrection, renewal and immortality within the spiritual teachings of Christianity. Themes of renewal are also linked to alchemical traditions to, as many schools of thought compare the resurrecting phoenix to the modern-day peacock." [177]
    • The Yazidis consider Tawûsê Melek a benevolent angel who has redeemed himself from his fall and has become a demiurge who created the cosmos from the Cosmic Egg. After he repented, he wept for 7000 years, his tears filling seven jars, which then quenched the fires of hell. Some Christians, Muslims and others identify Tawûsê Melek as Lucifer or Shaytān (Satan). The Yazidis' cultural prohibition against uttering the word – saying God's name is blasphemy, as in Judaism – does not make the situation easier. Tawûsê Melek is "God's Angel", and this is how Yazidis themselves see him. (wikipedia)

Bull

Golden calf (Main Article)

The bull is somewhat unique in the world of symbolism in that he is both a solar and a lunar creature. His male fertility, his fiery temperament, and his role as father of the herd make him the masculine sun-god in many cults. Just as the lion is the king and terror of the beasts of the forest, the bull is the king of the farm and the personification of brute strength and power. The lion, the bull, and the sun are popular symbols of life and resurrection. The bull's crescent shaped horns link him to moon worship and symbolism although, in some areas, the sun is a bull while the moon is a cow. Sin, moon-god of ancient Ur, was often pictured as a bull.[178]

  • Syrian and Canaanite
    • Golden calf
      • The bull as a male deity was certainly familiar to the Israelites since many of their neighbors worshiped gods in this form. In addition to the Egyptian bull gods, Israelites would've recognized the Canaanite Baal and his sister-wife Astarte who were worshiped in the form of bulls. Baal was sometimes depicted riding a bull while in a standing position. The Babylonian Hadad and Enlil were bull gods. The bull was also associated with Bel and Eabani who might be pictured sporting bull horns and hindquarters. Canaanite worshipers of Molech made huge bronze statues of this god in the shape of a man with a bull's head. These hollow statues were filled with children who were then roasted inside the idols as offerings to Molech (Lev 18:21; 20:2-5; I Ki 11:5-7, 33; 2 Ki 23:10-13; Is 57:9; Jer 32:35; 49:1-3; Zeph 1:5; Acts 7:43). The Israelites sometimes referred God as the "Bull of Israel" or the "Bull of Heaven." When they set up idols for themselves they were in the form of golden calves (Ex 31:1-4;1 Ki 12:28).[179]
  • Ancient Egyptian religion
    • Egyptians celebrated the Festival of the Apis Bull, which lasted for seven days. Throngs of people gathered in Memphis to watch priests lead the sacred bull in a hallowed procession through the welcoming crowds. It was thought that any child who smelled the breath of the Apis had the ability to predict the future. In fact, the Apis itself was often consulted as an oracle. Egyptians asked the bull a question and then offered it food: if the bull ate the food it was a good omen, but a rejection of the food was a bad omen. [180]
  • Mithraic Mysteries
    • "The Bank of England was originally constructed above the ancient London Mithraeum (also called the "Temple of Mithras"), London at Walbrook, dating to the founding of Londinium in antiquity by Roman garrisons. Mithras was, among other things, considered the god of contracts, a fitting association for the Bank." [181]
    • Bullfighting: The slaying of the bull by Mithras (Roman deity - with pre-Roman origins - who was born from a Cosmic egg) and the castration by a scorpion (Scorpio) in Roman mythology. This sacrificial tradition represents the domination of the 'elite' over the potentials of the 'common' people.
      • Televised sport events are one modern variant of this occult tradition. The 'elite' know many people want to align themselves with the dominators (winners), not the suppressed (losers). They hypnotize and pacify people with simple systems of glorified male competition and domination. A politically harmless, commercial venting system for the boredom and anger of many people - especially 'lower-class' young males.
  • Whore of Babylon riding the beast
    • Bible prophecy: Whore of Babylon
    • Europa (mythology)
      • "This statue (European Parliament building fig.1), standing in front of the Winston Churchill building, refers to ancient mythology and depicts one the most ancient representation of Europa. Its based on a story where Zeus disguised himself as a white bull in order to seduce the princess Europa who was gathering flowers. When she approached the bull and got on its back, the bull seized the occasion to run away with her and eventually rape her (I’m giving you the non-censored version of the story). So the woman (who represents Europe) on top of this bull is about to get raped." [182]

Cherub

Also see: Occult symbolism: Lucifer
A Cherubim is composed of the four fixed sign cardinal points of the zodiac. The lion (Leo), the serpent holder (Ophiuchus/Scorpio), the calf (Taurus) and the man (Aquarius).

Note: Those are the caracteristics of the 4 animals/beasts that carry the Throne of God Allmighty according to Rev 4:6-7: "And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."
  • Cherub (Also called Kerubim, Shedu, Lamassu)
  • The word kerubim means "one who prays", or "one who intercedes." Cherubim or Kerubim are an order of angel described in the Bible and ancient texts as a combination of two, or more often, four creatures -- including that of a human. Both the mythical Sphinx and the scriptural cherubim are "hybrid" beings combining two to four creatures. The meaning of these creatures can be found in the zodiac narrative.[183]
    • In the book of Genesis cherubim are described as guarding the way to the Tree of Life, east of the Garden of Eden armed with flaming swords (Genesis 3:24): "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
      • Exodus 26:1 attests that cherubim were embroidered on the curtains of the tabernacle. In Solomon's Temple, two olivewood sculptures of cherubim plated with gold, ten cubits high, stood wingtip-to-wingtip guarding the Ark of the Covenant, and two further sculpted cherubim are described as standing on the cover of the Ark facing each other (Ex 25:18). The Ark of the Covenant stood in the Holy of Holies, where the glory of God was said to reside; for this reason God is referred to in the Tanach as "God who dwells between the cherubim". These were probably winged figures of a type common in the symbolism of the region, e.g. those depicted in the Megiddo Ivories carrying the throne of a nameless Canaanite king (Wright, 1957).
    • At an earlier period, when Jehovah was still conceived as making physical appearances, the cherubim formed his living chariot, possibly identical with the storm-winds (Psalms 18:10;2 Samuel 22:11): "And he rode upon a cherub and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind ".
  • Ezekiel documents a different version of cherubim, probably of popular origin (according to the compilers of the Jewish Encyclopedia). The cherubim in this tradition had each four faces— that of a lion, an ox, an eagle, and a man— and combined features of these four creatures, the stature and hands of a man, the hooved feet of a calf (compare the image of Satan), and the two pairs of wings that identified deities, e.g. in contemporary Assyria (Ashur, Shamash, ... ). Christians will recognize these as the symbols of the four Evangelists. Two of the wings extended upward, meeting above and sustaining the throne of God; while the other two stretched downward and covered the creatures themselves. They never turned, but went "straight forward" as the wheels of the cherubic chariot, and they were full of eyes "like burning coals of fire" (Ezekiel i:5 - 28; ix:3, x; xi:22).
Ezekiel 1:4-11
Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the soles of calves’ feet. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze. The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings. Their wings touched one another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces. Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies.
Ezekiel 10:20-21
This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims. Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.

  • Sirius and Dog Link
    • In the astrology of the Middle Ages, Sirius was a Behenian fixed star, associated with beryl and juniper. Its astrological symbol was listed by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa. Many cultures have historically attached special significance to Sirius, particularly in relation to dogs. Indeed, it is often colloquially called the "Dog Star" as the brightest star of Canis Major, the "Great Dog" constellation. It was classically depicted as Orion's dog. The Ancient Greeks thought that Sirius's emanations could affect dogs adversely, making them behave abnormally during the "dog days," the hottest days of the summer. The Romans knew these days as dies caniculares, and the star Sirius was called Canicula (The heliacal year is reckoned from the heliacal rising of Sirius; thus it also is known as the canicular year. [185]), "little dog." The excessive panting of dogs in hot weather was thought to place them at risk of desiccation and disease. In extreme cases, a foaming dog might have rabies, which could infect and kill humans whom they had bitten.

Rabbit

The rabbit is well known as a sexual symbol of fertility. In various parts of the world, religions which developed from Babel also associate the rabbit with periodicity, both human and lunar (Egypt, China, etc.). As you may remember, the Mother Goddess Semiramis (Easter) is associated with the Moon. In other words, the Easter bunny symbolizes the Mother Goddess. Annual Spring time fertility rituals are associated worship of the Mother Goddess and Tammuz, the reincarnation of her husband Nimrod. [186]

  • Biblical References [187]
    • One of Christ's biblical titles is "the Lion of the tribe of Judah" (Rev 5:5)
    • The words of Christ are considered as powerful as a lion's roar. (Rev 10:1-4)
    • The prophet Isaiah considered himself as watchful as a lion over the Lord's people (Is 21:8).
    • In Solomon's temple, bronze carts were designed with lions and palm trees upon them (1 Ki 7:27-37)
    • Cherubs have two faces: one of a lion and one of a man (Ezek 41:18-19).
    • The lion is the symbol of those saints martyred in the amphitheater. Ever since God delivered Daniel from the lion's den, God's people have looked to Him to "stop the mouths of lions" in times of great danger (Dan 6:7-28; see also 2 Tim 4:17 & Heb 11:33).
    • God Himself threatened to tear His people like a lion when they refused to acknowledge and obey Him (Hosea 5:14; 13:7-8).
    • As an emblem of pride and ferocity, the lion also represents Satan who was brought down by pride. St. Peter writes, "Your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Pet 5:8)
    • God is presumed to "break the teeth of the lions" so they can no longer feast on the righteous (Job 4:8-11; Psa 34:10; 58:6)
    • The lazy man excuses himself from work by saying, "There is a lion outside! I shall be slain in the streets!" (Prov 22:13; 26:13). The wicked flee before non-existent enemies. But the "righteous are bold as a lion" (Prov 28:1).
    • The courage, might, and valor of Israel's strong men including David and his mighty men, Samson, Saul, and Jonathan, were extolled as being lion-like or stronger than lions (Judg 14:5-9; 1 Sam 17:34-37; 2 Sam 1:23; 17:10; 23:20; 1 Chr 11:22; 12:8).
    • Lion also were used as adjectives for Powerful King i.e. Babylon Jer. 50:43-44, Dan. 7:4 (Belshazzar),17,23


In many cultures the lion is the emblem of earthly power, strength, dignity, courage, and royalty. It is the king of the beasts and of the jungle. The writer of Proverbs remarks, "There are three things which are majestic in pace, yes, four which are stately in walk: A lion, which is mighty among beasts and does not turn away from any... (Prov 30:29-30). Admiration for the lion's masculine strength and courage caused it to be the insignia of the Roman legions. The Pharaohs of Egypt were sometimes pictured as lions and English kings adopted the lion as their emblem. Many rulers including Alexander the Great were depicted wearing lion's heads on the coins minted during their reigns.

  • Its yellow fur made the lion a symbol of the sun. Old and young lions were often depicted sitting back to back representing the rising and setting sun, old age and youth, or the past and the future. The lion's fur made it the symbol of gold (called the "subterranean sun"). From Persia to Rome, the lion was the symbol of the sun-god Mithra, who was worshiped as "the Invincible Sun." Both the Persian Mithra and the Egyptian Sekhmet wore lion's heads.

Sphinx

  • Various notes:
    • Sphinx: A legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man, sometimes depicted with wings.
  • See Occult symbolism:Egyptian
  • In Ancient Egypt, mythological beast, represented as a lying lion with the head of a man. Deviations to this exist, with the head of a ram, hawk or falcon. In the mortuary temple of Amenemhet 3 in Thebes, the sphinx even had the tail of a crocodile. The word is from the Greek meaning "strangler" but it may have its origin in the Egyptian "shesep ankh" meaning "living image". The Egyptian sphinx was associated with both the king and the sun-god and represents the rising and setting sun, rebirth, and resurrection.[189]
  • The Sphinx composed of a man's head and chest, eagle's wings, a bull's hindquarters, and a lions' forequarters became symbols of the Biblical tetramorph and the four living creatures of Revelation (Ezek 1:5-14; Rev. 4:6-8). These in turn represent the cherubim; the four Evangelists and their Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; the four kings of the created world - the lion (king of the jungle), the eagle (king of the air), the bull (king of the farm), and man (king of creation); and, according to St. Jerome, Christ's Incarnation (the man), His Passion (the bull), His Resurrection (the Lion), and His Ascension (the eagle).[190]

Griffin

  • Various notes:
    • Griffin: A legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle.
    • c.1200 (as a surname), from O.Fr. grifon "a bird of prey," also "fabulous bird of Greek mythology" (with head and wings of an eagle, body and hind quarters of a lion, believed to inhabit Scythia and guard its gold), from L.L. gryphus, misspelling of grypus, variant of gryps (gen. grypos), from Gk. gryps (gen. grypos) "curved, hook-nosed," in reference to its beak. Klein suggests a Semitic source, "through the medium of the Hittites," and cites Heb. kerubh "a winged angel," Akkad. karibu, epithet of the bull-colossus (see cherub). The same or an identical word was used, with uncertain connections, in mid-19c. Louisiana to mean "mulatto" (especially one one-quarter or two-fifths white) and in India from late 18c. to mean "newly arrived European." [191]

    • "The Merovingian kings were noted sorcerers in the manner of the Samaritan Magi, and they firmly believed in the hidden powers of the honeycomb. Because a honeycomb is naturally made up of hexagonal prisms, it was considered by philosophers to be the manifestation of divine harmony in nature. Its construction was associated with insight and wisdom - as detailed in Proverbs 24:13-14: “My son, eat thou honey, because it is good… So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul..." To the Merovingians, the bee was a most hallowed creature. A sacred emblem of Egyptian royalty, it became a symbol of Wisdom. Some 300 small golden bees were founded stitched to the cloak of Childeric I (son of Meroveus) when his grave was unearthed in 1653. Napoleon had these attached to his own coronation robe in 1804. He claimed this right by virtue of his descent from James de Rohan-Stuardo, the natural son (legitimized in 1667) of Charles II Stuart of Britain by Marguerite, Duchesse de Rohan. The Stuarts in turn were entitled to this distinction because they, and their related Counts of Brittany, were descended from Clodion’s brother Fredemundus - thus (akin to the Merovingians) they were equally in descent from the Fisher Kings through Faramund. The Merovingian bee was adopted by the exiled Stuarts in Europe, and engraved bees are still to be seen on some Jacobite glassware." - from "Bloodline of the Holy Grail" by Laurence Gardner
    • "Freemasonry & bees":
      • "The bee and the hive have long been symbols of industry and regeneration, wisdom and obedience, with a place in Egyption, Roman and Christian symbolism. The hive is often seen in Masonic illustrations of the 18th and 19th century and both Clovis and Napoleon adopted the bee as their symbol. Although "the bee was among the Egyptians the symbol of an obedient people, because, says Horapollo, 'of all insects, the bee alone had a king.'1, its use in Freemasonry was secondary to any number of other symbols based on the working tools of a stone mason. "Looking at the regulated labor of these insects when congregated in their hive, it is not surprising that a beehive should have been deemed an appropriate emblem of systematized industry. Freemasonry has therefore adopted the beehive as a symbol of industry, a virtue taught in the instructions"

  • The bee as the Sun-god
  • The bee between the lips (see picture) of the Sun-god was intended to point him out as "the Word;" for Dabar, the expression which signifies in Chaldee a "Bee," signifies also a "Word"; and the position of that bee in the mouth leaves no doubt as to the idea intended to be conveyed. It was intended to impress the belief that Mithra (who says Plutarch, was worshipped as Mesites, "The Mediator"), in his character as Ouranos, "The Enlightener," was no other than that glorious one of whom the Evangelist John says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.....In Him was life; and the life was THE LIGHT OF MEN." The Lord Jesus Christ ever was the revealer of the Godhead, and must have been known to the patriarchs as such; for the same Evangelist says, "No man hath seen God at any time: the only-begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared," that is, He hath revealed "Him."

    • Above on the right is a Persian triple-horned headpiece depicted on gate A in the citadel of King Sargon II (721-705 B.C.), in Khorsabad (Iraq). This may well be the origin of the triple-tiered papal tiara as claimed by the Catholic Encyclopedia.


Beetle

  • The dung beetle which is the Egyptian symbol of reincarnation. It is also a symbol of of Beelzebub, Lord of the flies (satan). Worn by occultists to show that they have power and is a source of protection. [195]
  • It seemed to the ancient Egyptians that the young scarab beetles emerged spontaneously from the burrow were they were born. Therefore they were worshiped as "Khepera", which means "he was came forth." This creative aspect of the scarab was associated with the creator god Atum. The ray-like antenna on the beetle's head and its practice of dung-rolling caused the beetle to also carry solar symbolism. The scarab-beetle god Khepera was believed to push the setting sun along the sky in the same manner as the beetle with his ball of dung. In many artifacts, the scarab is depicted pushing the sun along its course in the sky. [196]

    • pseudoccultmedia blog (keyword search on "monarch")
    • "The name Monarch does not derive from its royal heritage, but rather refers to the Monarch butterfly. Children who are traumatized have their legs tied and are electroshocked and tortured which alters their personalities form, so that they think they are butterflies. This was the original reason for the name Monarch being attached to the trauma-based mind control." (edited) [197]

"I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." Luke 10:19

Spider

  • The spider's web represents the malicious traps evil doers weave for the righteous. Isaiah points out the futility of the plans of the wicked: "They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. They ...weave the spider's web... Their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands" (Is 59:4-6).
  • To the Christian, the spider's web was representative of human frailty and the temporary nature of earthly existance and riches. In the book of Job, Bildad says of the man who places his trust in anything but God, "His trust is a spider's web. He leans on his house [cobweb, wealth], but it does not stand. He holds it fast, but it does not endure" (Job 8:13-15).[198]
  • Various notes:
    • "The spider has symbolized patience due to its hunting technique of setting webs and waiting for prey, as well as mischief and malice for its poison and the slow death it causes [during or after which the prey-meat-energy is sucked out], its venom often seen as a curse." [199]
    • "Linked to treachery and death in many cultures, it was seen as a "trickster" in ancient Africa, a "spinner of fate" in ancient goddess cultures and -- in ancient Greek myths -- the goddess Arachne turned into a spider by her jealous rival Athena. "Christian" cultures have linked it both to an evil force that sucked blood from its victims and to "good luck" because of the cross on the back of some species. The Chinese have welcomed the spider descending on its thread as a bringer of joys from heaven." [200]

The female black widow's venom is particularly harmful to humans (males almost never bite humans)."
