Spiritual symbols are powerful. Beneath the veneer of social norms they are being used in a hidden war. Not only have dark forces propagated the symbols of black magic into millions of unsuspecting homes, but additionally many of the world’s great spiritual symbols of light have been demonized.
For thousands of years forces of darknesshave tasked themselves with the aim of destroying spirituality and suppressing consciousness. They have infiltrated spiritual groups, organizations and schools (such as the Freemasons, the Catholic Church etc.); have hijacked their spiritual texts, teachings, symbols and knowledge; and have then shut it away, distorted, destroyed and suppressed it.
What we have been left with is a trail of smeared esoteric knowledge and infiltrated spiritual schools throughout human history, where spiritual symbols of light are given a bad name, inverted and used against.All is not what it seems.The way they have used symbols can give a good insight into how those behind the destruction of spirituality do their work. Sometimes they make good seem bad by demonizing and creating negative connotations with good. Sometimes they make bad seem good by glamorizing and glorifying what is bad. And sometimes they hide the bad within the good by working behind and through structures that are good on the surface.
All of this creates a mass of confusion where people who don’t know any better are turned against the knowledge of the light (the very thing that can help them), idolize things of darkness, and devote themselves with the best of intentions to institutions that are not what they seem. It is then a very serious thing to look deeper into the matrix.
Symbols have an origin deeper than many suppose. They are not just there to convey an idea or concept. They contain universal principles, which is what gives them their powerful properties. For example, many of them can be found in the movements of the cosmos—the planet Venus traces a pentagram in its movement in relation to planet Earth every 8 years, the swastika is found in the movement of Earth through its annual solstices and equinoxes, and the yin and yang is a map of the light and dark halves of the year.
So why are cosmological symbols like the pentagram and swastika now associated with evil, and genuinely dark symbols, like the upside down crucifix and number of the beast, so in right now?
Countless near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, ancient texts, religions, spiritual wisdom traditions, and now even areas of scientific theory, have confirmed that there are other dimensions of co-existence that are populated by beings—both angelic and demonic.
Everything we can see around us, including ourselves, is multi-dimensional—it’s just that we are usually only aware of the physical part. Like everything else, symbols that are drawn here are visible in other dimensions, and according to the symbol, can attract or repel other dimensional forces and beings.
“The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles. On this subject the great Paracelsus has written: ‘No doubt many will scoff at the seals, their characters and their uses, which are described in these books, because it seems incredible to them that metals and characters [symbols] which are dead should have any power and effect. Yet no one has ever proved that the metals and also the characters as we know them are dead, for the salts, sulphur, and quintessences of metals are the highest preservatives of human life and are far superior to all other simples.’”
~ Manly P Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
The fact that symbols and numbers which attract dark entities are being used more and more in pop culture doesn’t just indicate that there are dark forces behind these industries; if it did, there would be little advantage to those promoting them. Instead, their promotion brings these symbols into millions of homes, even billions, around the world, where they attract forces and beings of darkness into the lives of unsuspecting people.
On top of this, the symbols that attract the powers of light are also demonized and trashed (along with those who use and teach about them). Esoteric things for good are made out to be kooky, cultish and weird, whilst the dark symbols and rituals of evil are promoted as fashionable and cutting edge. Because symbols of light have the power to attract the forces of light, they also have the power to banish the forces of darkness. Stigmatizing them strips away the ability for people to use symbols of light to defend themselves against evil forces.
In this way humanity is being both deceived and dis-empowered.
One tell-tale way to pick a symbol of black magic is if it is a symbol of light but inverted. Darkness, in a spiritual sense, is light inverted; thus it too has its own power for those who learn to access it. Those who awaken in light utilize the powers of light and goodness, whilst those who awaken in evil utilize the dark side of the universal energy (the “dark side of the force” as it was referred to in Star Wars).
Because the nature of darkness is the inverse of light, it follows that dark symbols will be those of light inverted.
“In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power… The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.”
~ Manly P Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
The pentagram so synonymous with evil and witchcraft, is really a deeply cosmic one found in the movements of Venus (the Morning and Evening Star) in relation to the Earth.
When pointed downwards it attracts demonic entities. It represents the fall of the human being into hell/the abyss, and the rule of matter (the upper four points of the star) over spirit (the one downward point).
“This figure (the pentagram) is the time-honored symbol of the magical arts, and signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent, the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man not only may master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself. The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.”
~ Manly P Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
When pointing upwards, it is the human ascending towards heaven/the spiritual realm, matter under the guidance of the spirit, and the unification of the human with divinity. Today it is still used to repel demons (I personally wear one and hang one in my room)—so is it any wonder it has been turned into a symbol of public scorn and suspicion?
The pentagram is a good example of how demonic entities take the knowledge of light and truth, and distort it to destroy it. As you will read below, they have also hijacked many other spiritual symbols in this way.
The hallmark symbol of the “powers that be”, the “New World Order” and “Illuminati”, is the all-seeing eye. It appears this once ancient spiritual symbol became hijacked when Freemasonry was infiltrated.
Today it has been distorted to have another sinister meaning.
When used by the hidden hands behind the “New World Order” it symbolizes the knowledge of darkness, which is accessed and kept by a few elites who use it to control the rest of humanity beyond their comprehension. The logo of the first attempt to set up a national surveillance network by DARPA was the all-seeing eye atop a pyramid. The phrase that accompanied it – scientia est potentia (knowledge is power); the knowledge of the “dark side of the force” also brings with it huge power, and demonic entities use it to control others.
But this symbol, which surfaced in ancient Egypt as the eye of Ra, also has a spiritual meaning – one that empowers a human being rather than enslaves. It represents the inner spiritual eye, sometimes called the “third eye”, and includes the pineal gland—now well known to be linked to our connection to higher realities and states of consciousness. It is depicted as one eye as there is just one of them (not like our two outer eyes), and looks incredibly similar to the design of the Egyptian eye of Ra. This third eye can be awakened through a spiritual work and allows someone to see and perceive beyond the material world.
To the “New Word Order” the pyramid is the hierarchy of power and of evil. Demonic entities work within a hierarchy that extends from other dimensions, into the physical world. This is why the eye is often seen separated from the rest of the pyramid, signifying the real control coming from beyond the material plane.
Spiritually the pyramid can represent a number of things. They have been built by ancient spiritual cultures around the world where they were extremely sacred places. Whilst they were later taken over by degeneracy and sinister forces, pyramids originally signified the descent and ascent of consciousness on the path to enlightenment. A triangle itself represents the three forces of the cosmos that are central to spirituality: the Father, Mother and Son of the universe, represented in sacred trinities throughout the world such as the Christian Joseph, Mary and Jesus, and Egyptian Osiris, Isis and Horus, that are unified within in the spiritual work.
Pop star covered in upside down crucifixes and doing a symbolic gesture in covering their eye – creating the all-seeing eye.
Like the pentagram the cross is another symbol that when upright is of light, and when turned upside down/inverted is of darkness. The upright cross has appeared not just in early Christianity, but in many different spiritual cultures that preceded it including ancient Briton, and ancient Egypt as the ankh.
When inverted, like the pentagram, it is the fall of the human being into hell/the abyss. Although many argue it originated from the way Peter the disciple was said to have been crucified, which was upside down, it is also used in black magic. Demonic entities wish to see every human being enter hellish regions, and to destroy the spirituality of the cosmic Son wherever and whenever it has appeared. This is why you’ll find sinister powers promoting and relishing in the distortion and destruction of sacred spiritual teachings and symbols like the crucifix.
When upright the cross is the tree of life—the conjunction of the three forces of the cosmos: Father, Mother and Son. It is a symbol of the inner death of the ego and the resurrection of a person to the imperishability of the spirit.
In esoteric literature there are many references to a left-handed path, and a right-handed path. Initiates of darkness walk the left-handed path and are symbolized with a left arm or leg crossed over the right. Initiates of light walk the right-handed path and are symbolized by a right hand crossed over the left.
Depictions of someone with their arms crossed over their chest can be found as far back as ancient Egypt, where pharaohs and deities were portrayed with their right arm crossed on top of their left, revealing the truly benevolent original source of the civilization’s incredible knowledge.
And finally the swastika, which is one of the most stigmatized symbols that exists today due to its use by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. This is a prime example of someone who was interested in esotericism (Hitler), but who obviously had no spiritual level and instead caused its mass demonization. The swastika has been depicted throughout numerous ancient cultures, including most famously Hinduism. It is not an evil symbol at all whether spinning clockwise or anti-clockwise, but portrays a cosmic principle of movement.
The destruction of the knowledge of how to awaken consciousness is absolutely central to the work of darkness. The smear campaign that has been waged by demonic entities and their initiates in the physical world against those with the knowledge of how to awaken spiritually has been fought since recorded history. On one hand initiates of light struggle to bring peace, freedom and enlightenment to the world. On the other, initiates of darkness seek to destroy their efforts and instead enslave humanity. To this end, schools of light and knowledge have been infiltrated, smeared, persecuted, and destroyed from within, their symbols inverted, distorted and demonized, and texts outlawed and suppressed.
That’s why today we are witnessing black rituals at music awards, the perversion and distortion of spiritual symbols in pop culture, the erosion of the values that came to society from spirituality, the utter emphasis on raising generations absorbed in materialism from birth, and the move to a humanist one world religion that is stripped of any esoteric (empowering) knowledge.
We can however, take back the ancient heritage of knowledge from the hands of darkness. Spiritual symbols are by their nature an intuitive and universal language that can be understood once more. And at this point we have an important choice to make: we can either gain the knowledge of the cosmic principles that these symbols contain, or remain unaware and influenced by those who use this knowledge for dark purposes.

Heavenletters™, bringing Earth closer to Heaven.
My beloved Children who are My Very Self, you do not need Me to the degree as you have often felt you do. You may have thought that you ought to feel a pressure to come to Me, that it is of the essence. Of course, you always have Me, so, in that sense, you don’t need Me at all. You don’t need that which you already have. You have what you have, and I am telling you that you have Everything. You are here. You passed the starting line a long time ago. This means you are fully in Eternity, and you are beginning to embrace this Awareness.
It is not exactly that you are floating. It is that Eternity is weightless, and this is what you are beginning to feel or have touched on more deeply as of late. You can call it what you like, yet what you are experiencing is the Weightlessness of Eternity.
There are no difficulties in Eternity. You do have a sense of this.
You want Me, yes, and you want to put Me first, yes. This is the same as putting one foot in front of the other. Before you get into the house, you have to open the door. Here’s the thing. You are here. You have already opened the door. You have entered Heaven. You are housed here, yet you live on Earth. You are, nevertheless, consciously aware that you are at Home with Me, and, so, We love. We are Each Other’s Very Existence.
Your life can be light-hearted with Me. I do not have to be a serious venerated aspect of your life. I am the Door through which you enter Fullness. It’s not such a big deal. You just open the door. There are no drum rolls or cymbals banged.
You are not obligated to Me in the sense that you hold obligation or guilt. You are committed to Me, and this is a horse of a different color.
You are not absent from Me, nor are you absent from your commitment to Me because you go hither and yon. Life on Earth is before you in order to be tasted, to be enjoyed, to go around the block on. Please do not ever feel that you have let Me down by having joy in whatever you have joy in. Our inviolable connection doesn’t have to be serious. It does not have to be a heavy topic. Joy is the mainspring of your life. I am meant to be your joy.
It is not that I am your duty. No, you mustn’t think of Me that way at all. I am your Friend, and I ask you to pop over and see Me, to say hello, to check in with Me, but I, your duty? No, not at all. Who wants to be someone’s duty. Not I! For Heaven’s sakes, you are My love, and I am Yours.
That which you have always, you don’t have to hunger for. Therefore, do not think of Me as duty or obligation. I am far more. Yes, We have responsibility, yet this is easy freely-given responsibility, something like the way you like to check in and see your sleeping baby. You do it out of joy. You want to do it. Come to Me with wanting to come to Me.
You can never leave Me out anyway. You may think you can, yet, one way or another, I am prominently in your focus. My hand is around your shoulder companionably. I am God, yet I am not a heavy-duty God. I am a light-hearted God, and so I ask you to be light-hearted as well.
We are two delights who are actually One. We ride in tandem. That’s how it is. We are not One without the other. As a matter of fact, there is no other, is there? Nod your head and say: “God and I are One.”
Higher beings often incarnate to affect the course of historic events. We know, for instance, that St. Francis incarnated as Mahatma Gandhi, (1) St. Clare as Mother Teresa, (2) and St. Germaine as Merlin, Francis Bacon, Christopher Columbus and others. (3)
The Divine Mother herself incarnates as the essence of every avatar, like Rama, Krishna, and Ramakrishna. These individuals are therefore the highest examples of composite beings.
We lightworkers are higher-dimensional beings who’ve incarnated to assist with the mass, physical Ascension that’s happening now and is the first in the universe.
I’d like to spend a few moments looking at some aspects of incarnating to play a role in this event.
Many of us, Archangel Michael says, “are an aspect or an emanation — not an apparition — … of the higher realm.”
Whether higher-dimensional beings incarnate to invent a new device, discover a new world, or help with Ascension, a part of us remains in the higher realms, as St. Germaine explains: “When you come into human form, a portion of your ‘self’ stays in the higher dimensions to guide you, and this is your Higher Self.” (4)
We heard Archangel Michael tell us earlier that our angelic self “is not your higher self. If you want to think in the way you do, in terms of layers, think of your angelic self as above your higher self.” (5) All quotes that follow in this article are from this same source.) Both aspects of us remain largely outside our incarnated form.
Many of us aligned ourselves with greater beings when we were first birthed from Source. Archangel Michael explains:
“There are many of you who, when you have chosen sides, as it were, when you have chosen your ray. When you have originally birthed, you have aligned yourself, say, with me, and you carry that energy. Now, some, in a slight manner, and some in a very dramatic manner. So you are an aspect – not that I overtake you, because I would never choose to do that. That is against the Mother’s realm of free will.
“But your leanings, the aspect of your spiritual self is very deeply aligned with that energy. Some of you are very deeply aligned with the aspect and the embodiment of the energy of the Divine Mother, the Magdalena, Yeshua, Sanat Kumara, St. Germaine, Archangel Gabrielle. So, there is that aspect that you wish to also deeply anchor within you.”
While we’re incarnated, apparently we can send an aspect of ourselves, usually in the night hours, to accompany the higher beings like Archangel Michael on special missions to the world’s hot spots or to relieve suffering. He describes that capability here:
“Every person, every being, even myself included (but let us restrict our conversation to the human experience), has many aspects. It is not a totality or a bi-location; it is an aspect of yourself that goes often with me during a certain mission or purpose while you are still whole and complete in your physical self.”
We may, during our incarnation, have various forms of relationships and interactions with the beings we’re aligned with. The first one I want to discuss is being overlit. Archangel Michael tells us:
“Now, when you have that connection, that lineage — to any of us, but, again, I will use the example of myself — there are times throughout life when, of course, you will feel two things — one, at times, the over-lighting (and I use over-lighting, not over-shadowing) of yourself, of the totality and sweetness of your being with my energy.
“You will feel at moments, ‘Well, I must be channeling!’ because you feel the energy of our connection, and as if I am sitting a couple of feet above your head and simply flowing my energy through you, blessing you, loving you — over-lighting you! — giving you, sharing with you, insight, information, sense of direction that is important to you or to your circle in that moment or for a period of time.”
This sense of being overlit may come and go.
“This over-lighting usually comes and goes, depending on how clearly you align with any of us, every day or occasionally. There are times when you will be over-lighted by someone or some being — an archangel or a mighty one — that you do not have, shall we say, regular affiliation with, but you are working on an aspect of yourself or a project where you have, on a soul level, called that energy forth.”
Tomorrow we’ll look at a deeper form of entering into partnership with those we’ve aligned with: merging.
(Continued in Part 2.)
First Quarter Moon Phase: take action, break away, step out
Moon in Virgo
Ruling Mahavidya: Bagalamukhi (The Paralyzer, The Storm-Calmer)
Skill: look at the details but also the bigger picture of things
Negative Imprint: settling for less, taking scraps; aggression, arguments
Positive Imprint: independence, creativity, speaking one’s mind peacefully
The First Quarter Moon phase begins today, bringing the energy to link things together with the intricacy of a fine lace handkerchief. We see how things from our past, present, and future are threaded together. Details are important today, and taking care of small details is encouraged, but seeing the big picture of all the details is more important. We want to make sure we are looking at the totality of things, not just one aspect.
The Sun is now in the middle of Gemini. Gemini energy always involves others in various ways; it is the sign of The Twins. The concept of “the other” is fused with Gemini. It is concerned with “me vs others” and can have difficulty standing on its own. You could also say it is about our inner world and what we show the outer world. Today’s energy highlights the Gemini theme of others through strong support of activities, projects, and ideas undertaken with others.
Further, the notion of “self and others” comes into play today in other ways. In keeping with this month’s theme of “aroused strikers around a factory,” we are inclined to stand up and lay out our position in support of something important. To minimize resistance, make sure you are coming from the highest level of intention and do not become aggressive or pushy. Stand in your center and radiate your power. Communicate your emotions, but don’t get carried away or overdramatic. Be clear and don’t waver. And if you don’t get the support or outcome that you want, don’t despair. Enormous inner strength will be built and clarity about what is not in line with your highest, best, happiest life will be revealed. Wisdom is gained.
The “intricate lacework” today includes potential for being misunderstood or disadvantaged. This manifests if you are focusing too much of your energy on others at the expense of taking care of yourself. What need is this satisfying in you? Do you need to become more independent, self-contained, or creative? Remember that inner strength is the aim this month. Don’t lose sight of alternatives or other possibilities.
Finally, a word about the impending Mercury retrograde. Mercury will station retrograde on Saturday, but today it has moved to the degree in the sky where it will appear to stop and move backwards. Simply stated, the retrograde energy is foreshadowed today. Here’s the thing: the degree of Mercury’s retrograde is “a cat arguing with a mouse.” Take a breath and let’s begin to reframe this. Yes, this means the Mercury retrograde will be intense. Things will come to somewhat of a standstill and communications will have conflicts. People will argue about things. But the fact that the cat is arguing with the mouse, when it could easily overpower and devour it, tells us that some sort of balance will come to situations – possibly for the first time. Old values, ideas, and systems are reconsidered. You could say the underdog (or “undermouse”) takes a stand and gains power. What was once overpowering is now open for discourse. While Mercury is retrograde, the balance of power is transformed in all things. Let’s work the Mercury retrograde from this angle, starting today.
Since the day is like intricate lacework, I could go on and on about the energetic signatures, but this is the big picture. Dive in to look at details, but come back to see things as a whole. Keep building your inner strength.
(P.S. Good job making it through double Crescent energy, wise owls! – For more information about the double Crescent energy, refer to the audio recording for this month, the Gemini Moon, here at the top of the Homepage at OracleReport.com)

You have by now surpassed any and all of your predecessors, dear ones, as you have indeed accomplished a feat few would have thought possible. For if it were not for you, none of the imminent changes that are about to start to unfold would be coming about, at least, not in the manner and at the speed that they will be appearing at now. For as you anchored yourself fully into this integrated new level of merged energy, you automatically opened up a new and much faster lane if you will for these energetically charged particles, these small but ever so powerful harbingers of change, and now, you stand before a veritable smorgasbord of opportunities. For you have come to the shores of the sea of potential, and now there is nothing stopping you from taking the plunge and immersing yourselves completely in what lies before you.
