For everyone who is stranded at Airports or in other countries…who have family and friends who are…the pagan and the Pen would like to send you our thoughts and prayers. Personally, I lit a candle for you a few days ago and have kept it burning.
For those who don’t understand what’s going on…a volcano erupted in Iceland and because of the ash cloud, have mucked up the flying home of many. Our own Bryn Colvin came to the United States just before and couldn’t get home on her due date.
Word is some of the airlines have gone out today, but how many, its uncertain.
Ok, today’s Numerology number is 9.
Nine is the number of the universe and of Vision. It represents spiritual ideals, philosophy and perfections. It is linked with Mars and therefore is connected to the signs of Aries and Scorpio. The colors of Nine are all shades of red.
In Ancient times, the Babylonians would be having a festival for Dumizi. For six months of every year Dumizi, their God, would leave the world above for the Underworld in order to be with his lover Inanna. Today, however, their religion speaks that he rises again to the Living World above, bringing with him the glorious summer.
Interesting isn’t it? In other myths that came later in the ages, it was a Goddess who went into the Underworld to be with her male lover. For example, Persephone and Hades. But in this earlier belief system, it was a male god.
