Grandma and the Pyramid, The Sun, The Owl and Z
Sunday I celebrated my birthday with my family. I took a few photos of Noah. His brother Matthew, 2, looked at the photo of me sitting on the steps of the entrance way of the Great Pyramid. He studied the image carefully and said, "Grandma, you're trapped in the pyramid."
"What is the circle?" I asked, referring to the white orb above me.
"That's the sun, grandma. It's protecting you." ... Matthew paused. "The lion is not far away." From the mouth of babes.
Later I watched some kind of animated show with my grandsons. It seems that there is a blue owl that is included in all of the shows whose name is Z!
Email from Bridgette ... Tuesday
As I was reading your column Monday night I came across something you mention that I actually wanted to share with you last week. Believe it or not it's about the little blue owl, Z. My daughters, Willow, age 5, and Autumn, 2, love to play a computer game called Noggin.
One morning, last week, I was helping them with the very beginning of the loading process of the Noggin site. I usually never do this part as Willow has it down pat. However, that morning she came to me and asked me to help her find Z. I thought to myself, What the heck does she mean?!
So I follow her to her computer and there he was ... a little blue owl. He hides behind a little wall of pink that is forever changing and you are supposed to find him. He keeps hiding once found, as the game reloads.
Again I thought, Why didn't I ever realize the little owl's name is Z?
I wanted to e-mail you right away, as I thought you would appreciate this story, but I waited to tell my husband to see what he thought. He laughed because he has known since the girls have been playing Noggin that the owl is named Z. I told him that I wanted to tell you but didn't want to at the same time, because there is always something Ellie, always something that you post that is a cosmic coincidence that coincides with a little tid bit in my life at the moment. Not wanting to bombard you with email, I chose to keep it to myself. My last words about it to my husband, Matthew, (another synchronicity) were, "I wish she knew about Z." So there you have it! I just had to call Matthew in to show him what you wrote. He said the message of course was going to get to you somehow. He then smiled his cool knowing Aquarian smile and said nothing more.
The Wise Old Owl has all the kn'owl'edge, you are on the 'edge' of discovery and recovery.
Someone once told me that the gray aliens sometimes appear as owls. That all goes to eye symbology and the Masonic Program.
I searched 'owl symbology' and found a website New World Order, Conspiracy that mentions the owl as a major Illuminati symbol.
A look at the history behind one of the Illuminati's more favored 'mascots'. That could only be the Canaanite deity, Molech (sometimes Moloch) whom to this day is still generally symbolized as an owl.
Ancient Egyptians used a representation of an owl for their hieroglyph for the sound m, although they would often draw this hieroglyph with its legs broken to keep this bird of prey from coming to life.
In the culture of the Native American Hopi nation, taboos surround owls, as they are closely associated with evil sorcery. The possession of owl feathers is considered an indication of witchcraft.
The Aztecs and Mayans, along with other natives of Mesoamerica, considered the Owl a symbol of death and destruction. In fact, the Aztec god of death, Mictlantecuhtli, was often depicted with owls. There is a saying in Spanish that still exists today: cuando el tecolote canta, el indio se muere ("when the owl cries/sings, the indian dies").
In Japanese culture, the owl is a symbol of death, and seeing one is considered a bad omen, though in recent times, they have sometimes been considered a bird of luck instead. Likewise, in Romanian culture, the mournful call of an owl is thought to predict the death of somebody living in the neighborhood.
In Indian culture, a white owl is considered a companion of the goddess of wealth, and therefore a harbinger of prosperity. The owl has been adapted as an emblem to reflect it's implications of wisdom (Wise old owl) by a revered military institution in India known as the Defense Service Staff College. In colloquia however it is commonly used to refer to stupidity.
The Akkadian goddess Lilitu is thought to have been associated with owls as well.
In Greek mythology, the owl, and specifically the Little Owl, was often associated with the Greek goddess Athena, a bird goddess who often assumed the form of an owl. Athena was also the goddess of wisdom, the Arts, and skills, and as a result, owls also became symbols of teaching and of institutions of learning, being included in the crest of arms of many universities. In the Western world, owls continue to be traditionally associated with wisdom.
The Romans, in addition to having borrowed the Greek associations of the owl, also considered owls to be funerary birds, due to their nocturnal activity and often having their nests in inaccessible places. As a result, seeing an owl in the daytime was considered a bad omen. The vampiric strix of Roman mythology was in part based on the owl.
In Romania this still exists, causing minor disturbance when an owl showed up at Cotroceni Palace.

Owl Symbolism: Perception, Silent Observation, Wisdom, Deception
The word "cailleach" in the Scottish-Gaelic means old woman. "Coileach-oidhche" is the word for owl, and means "night-cockerel". These birds were most often associated with the Crone aspect of the Goddess. The owl is often a guide to and through the Underworld, a creature of keen sight in darkness, and a silent and swift hunter. It can help unmask those who would deceive you or take advantage of you.
Owls are believed to have played a more prominent role in early Celtic cults, and could perhaps have derived from a more broadly based deity of a common European descent. Predating the Greek cult of Athena, for whom the owl was an animal attribute, were images of these mysterious birds in Celtic lands.
Owls are believed to be a sacred animal to the famed Cult of the Head. They often appear with human heads and with bovines, such as rams and bulls, all of which have been determined by scholars to be objects of this strange cult. In modern Scottish and Welsh languages, the owl, by the etymology of the word alone carries negative connotations of death and darkness. Then, in later Gallo-Roman times the Owl lost its cult significance, but has been linked to a Celtic goddess associated with fertility.
The most famous myth dealing with the owl is in the story of Blodeuwedd, a woman made from flowers, contained in the Mabinogi. Lleu, one of the central characters of the story has a wife created for him by the magician Gwydion, because his mother forbade by her own word that he would never marry any ordinary woman. Blodeuwedd is her name, and as the tale goes she tricks Lleu into divulging the secret to his own mortality, convincing him to even demonstrate how. In the process, Blodeuwedd then kills Lleu, who avenges his death by turning her in and owl, from which she receives her namesake in Gaelic.
A prime example of owl imagery are the handle fittings found with a famous cauldron found in Bra, Jutland that dates to the 3rd century B. C. The cauldron was found in a bog in Bra, and was believed to have been a votive offering that was broken into pieces before it was deposited. When put together, the cauldron spanned over a meter in diameter and was adorned by several owls and bulls heads.
In the Celtic style, the fitting bears the face of an owl through an arrangement of shapes that terminate at the end of some columnar tendril designs. This owl is typical of La Tene work and is defined by the large eyes and sharp, curved beak that stand forth from background of intertwining designs.
In Ancient Greek mythology the Owl was a creature sacred to Athena, Goddess of the night who represented wisdom. Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom had a companion Owl on her shoulder, which revealed unseen truths to her. Owl had the ability to light up Athena's blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth, as opposed to only a half truth.
The Ainu in Japan trust the Owl because it gives them notice of evil approaching. They revere the Owl, and believe it mediates between the Gods and men.
The bird features prominently Celtic folklore where it is considered both to be sacred and to have magical powers, again because of its abilities in the dark.
Zulus and other West African nations consider the bird a powerful influence in casting spells, and think that using parts of the owl gives great strength to a person involved with magical incantations.
To the Welsh, the Owl is a night predator, the only bird capable of defeating the swift falcon and then only at dusk, its time of power. The Owl symbolizes death and renewal, wisdom, moon magic, and initiations. Their Goddess Arianrhod shape shifts into a large Owl, and through the great Owl-eyes, sees even into the darkness of the human subconscious and soul. She is said to move with strength and purpose through the night, her wings of comfort and healing spread to give solace to those who seek her. A star and moon Goddess, Arianrhod was also called the Silver Wheel because the dead were carried on her Oar Wheel to Emania (the Moon-land or land of death), which belonged to her as a deity of reincarnation and karma. The Mother aspect of the Triple Goddess in Wales, her palace was Caer Arianrhod (Aurora Borealis), or the secret center of each initiate's spiritual being.
Many cultures have focused on the dark side of the Owl's symbolism. People have always been suspicious of the Owl because of man's fear of the dark, or night, and those things that might dwell there. In general, the hooting of an Owl is considered a portent of death or bad luck, and it may even prophesize death, as the death of Dido was foretold. It is a medical fact that most people die at night, and for that reason also the Owl has been seen as the messenger of death.
In the Middle East, China, and Japan, the Owl is considered as both a bad omen and an evil spirit.
For Christians the Owl traditionally signifies the Devil, powers of evil, bad news, and destruction.
Similarly, in the Old Testament the Owl is an unclean creature that stands alone as a figure of desolation.
In an Australian Aboriginal myth the Owl is the messenger of bad news.
Yama, the Verdic God of death, sometimes sent out the Owl as his emissary.
Indigenous peoples of the Americas consider the Owl to be the Night Eagle because it is silent and deadly in flight, and is a solitary bird with all-seeing eyes. The Owl is generally regarded as a bird of sorcerers because of its association with--and abilities in--the dark. It symbolizes deception and silent observation because it flies noiselessly. The Owl is feared by peoples who believe that the death warning is in its hoot. In the Navajo belief system, the Owl is the envoy of the supernatural world and earth-bound spirits. The Pawnee understand the Owl as the Chief of the Night and believe that it affords protection. The Cherokee honor the bird as sacred because of its night-time vision, and wish to draw that power to themselves to see in the dark.
The Owl has a dual symbolism of wisdom and darkness, the latter meaning evil and death. They are symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection and magic, and is oftentimes the medicine of sorcerers and witches, you are drawn to magical practices. Those who have owl medicine will find that these night birds will tend to collect around you, even in daytime, because they recognize a kinship with you.
The two main symbolic characteristics of the Owl, its wisdom and its nocturnal activity, have made it represent perception. Considering perception in a spiritual context, Owl medicine is related to psychism, occult matters, instincts, and clairvoyance-- the true ability to see what is happening around you.
The owl can see that which others cannot, which is the essence of true wisdom. Where others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what is there.
Use your power of keen, silent observation to intuit some life situation, Owl is befriending you and aiding you in seeing the whole truth. The Owl also brings its messages in the night through dreams or meditation. Pay attention to the signals and omens. The truth always brings further enlightenment.
The Owl, symbol of the Goddess, represents perfect wisdom. Owls have the ability to see in the dark and fly noiselessly through the skies. They bring messages through dreams. The Owl is the bird of mystical wisdom and ancient knowledge of the powers of the moon. With wide-open, all-seeing eyes, Owl looks upon reality without distortion and acknowledges it, yet is aware that with ancient magical and spiritual knowledge, he or she can make changes.
Cat Headed Beings and Symbology
This week featured Carnival and Mardi.
Olympic Closing Ceremonies, Carnival of Symbols.
The world as an OWL-stage...
The main stage inside the Great Stadion was depicted as a gigantic OWL, the bird of prey of the night, bird of wisdom (which reinforces her lunar characteristic) accompanying Lilith and the Bohemian Grove. In ancient Greek mythology the owl was a bird of Pallas Athena which represented the renewal of life, the Bird of Nu to Isis. You can find OWLs on the US One Dollar bill. The garden design of Capitol Hill reflects an OWL.
The ceremony started with a 'pale clown' riding in on a 'pale horse.' Out of a sea (sand-colored) came a Mermaid, accompanying the pale clown.
Mardi Gras is the world's biggest party
filled with myths and tall tales, strung together like beads.
Bead Symbology = DNA
Mardi Gras symbology goes to the Trickster/Clown, the Fleur de Lis, Superstitions, Friday the 13th [4, time, closure] which goes to Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Knights Templar , Cross Symbology, Masonic Program, and the journey of the bloodline back to consciousness.
A client named Megan, who attended Mardi Gras in New Orleans, reported that the energies are totally different this year as compared to her past experiences. She was a student at Tulane University in New Orleans and now, in her 20's, can feel the changes in the area. "A cleansing is occurring," she reports.
