The mystery of the serpent is always associated with the woman, as Moses tells it in the beginning in his book of Genesis, and as quoted in different chapters of the New Testament. The identification of women and evil had already been established in the Old Testament. The first woman, Lilith was demonised, and there are many passages that define Lilith as a Serpent. The most obvious passage, says Lilith as the Serpent had an affair with Eve before she had intercourse with Adam. This is the most expressive passage relating to Lilith that contains a description of being both a Serpent and using temptation.
“And the Serpent, the Woman of Harlotry, incited and seduced Eve through the husks of Light which in itself is holiness. And the Serpent seduced Holy Eve, and enough said for him who understands. An all this ruination came about because Adam the first man coupled with Eve while she was in her menstrual impurity — this is the filth and the impure seed of the Serpent who mounted Eve before Adam mounted her.
Behold, here it is before you: because of the sins of Adam the first man all the things mentioned came into being. For Evil Lilith, when she saw the greatness of his corruption, became strong in her husks, and came to Adam against his will, and became hot from him and bore him many demons and spirits and Lilin.” Quoting Bacharach, ’Emeq haMelekh
Not being satisfied with demonising the first Roman, Eve the second woman is too connected to the Serpent.
Today the serpent is regarded as one of the chief symbols of the Mother Goddess and attempts have been made to reclaim it as a creature of significance to women.
Most of the constellations we know of today bear Greek and Roman names, but people mapped the sky well before these empires took hold. The Greeks adopted their system from the Babylonians, whose origins in turn may have stemmed from Sumerian traditions 3,000 years before. Even further back, scientists suspect that markings on a the cave walls at Lascaux in southern France — created over 17,000 years ago — may chart the Pleiades and Hyades star clusters, making it the first known star map.
The constellation – Ophiuchus, has been known since ancient times, and is better known as Serpentarius, the Serpent Holder. It is included in the list of 48 constellations described by Ptolemy.
There is no evidence of the constellation preceding the classical era, and in Babylonian astronomy, a “Sitting Gods” constellation seems to have been located in the general area of Ophiuchus, hence the Babylonians associated the constellation with Nirah, a god who was sometimes depicted with a human upper body and legs that were serpents.
The earliest mention of the constellation is in Aratus, informed by the lost catalogue of Eudoxus of Cnidus (4th century BC)
Let Ophiuchus setting from both feet even to his knees be a sign of the rising of the Twins in the East. Then no longer is aught of Cetus beneath the verge, but thou shalt see him all. Then, too, can the sailor on the open sea mark the first bend of the River rising from the deep, as he watches for Orion himself to see if he might give him any hint of the measure of the night or of his voyage. For on every hand signs in multitude to the gods reveal to man. Aratus
To the ancient Greeks, the constellation represented the god Apollo struggling with a huge snake that guarded the Oracle of Delphi.
According to Roman era mythography, the figure represents the healer Asclepius, who learned the secrets of keeping death at bay after observing one serpent bringing another healing herbs. To prevent the entire human race from becoming immortal under Asclepius’ care, Jupiter killed him with a bolt of lightning, but later placed his image in the heavens to honor his good works.
In medieval Islamic astronomy (Azophi’s Uranometry, 10th century), the constellation was known as Al-Ḥawwaʾ “the snake-charmer”.

The above picture was commissioned as a set of constellation cards published in London c. 1825. The chart showing a man grappling with a serpent, at the tail end of which is a bull and a shield bearing a cross forming the constellations.
On researching this piece, one observation made Is that all the pictures commissioned in the early 1600s onwards have the serpents face opposite earlier pictures.
Graces the sky during the summer evenings
My favorite constellation, not because is beautiful or something, but because of the ancient, forgotten matriarchal history of humankind, which was stolen from you, by shitty Mesopotamian patriarchalism, all major mono’ and poly’ world-fake-religions!
So .. Something rather incredible occurred in 2011
DURING THE SUMMER Solstice THE HEART OF OPHIUCHUS ROSE AT STONEHENGE
Stonehenge is a Computer and the timing is Celestial. This marked an event in which Earths Computer synchronised with the Cosmic Clockworks.
The 13th Zodiac signs
Thanks to a wobble in the earth’s axis, – that’s what the scientists would have you believe, the astrological positions calculated some 2,000 years ago no longer apply. Since this Ancient Roman zodiac unearthed in Qarat el-Muzawwaqa, Egypt, was created in the 1st or 2nd century AD, the astrology has only gotten more bizarre, if that’s even possible, thanks to Earth’s precession. But what if it isn’t due to Earths wobble and actually supernatural? There must be some reason that this was painted and back then attributed to The Serpent Bearer.
“Astrology tells us that the sun is in one position, whereas astronomy tells us it’s in another position,” said Joe Rao, SPACE.com’s skywatching columnist and a lecturer at New York’s Hayden Planetarium.
So evidently, Ophiuchus is a fairly large and rambling constellation, but it is one of the least well-known. Although Ophiuchus does touch the elliptic — the path that the sun appears to take through the sky — astrologers for centuries ignored it as part of the Zodiac. Ophiuchus finally got some respect in 2011 when they added Ophiuchus as an astrological sign and realigned the Zodiac calendar.
Excerpt from “Henge Monuments c. 3000 BC – c. 1500 BC”
The whole monument is aligned on the axis of the midsummer sunrise and midwinter sunset. The tendency is to assume that it was the midsummer sunrise, as seen looking out from the centre of the stone settings down the Avenue (at the time Stonehenge was built, the sun would have risen just to the west of the Heel Stone), that was the main point of this alignment.
It may be, however, that the midwinter sunset (the sun would have set between the uprights of the Great Trilithon), at the opposite end of the axis, was, at least, equally significant.
Placed within the oval/horseshoe, near the south-western end – at the heart of the monument – was the, so-called, Altar Stone: a, dressed, greenish sandstone block, some 6 tons in weight, of Welsh origin.
The Altar Stone is recumbent today, and broken in two, pinned down by stones from the collapsed Great Trilithon. Opinion is divided over whether it was originally set upright or not.
The Altar Stone (bound to be a significant landmark during the Eclipse) is thought to have originally been a standing monolith measuring about 2 metres tall. Experts in the field question whether it was originally intended or used as an altar. So it would seem the stars of Ophiuchus were connecting themselves with the Trilithon that marked the midwinter sunset (definitely a 12/21/2012 thing) and the Altar.
Archaeologists believe the Altar Stone was brought to the site before the surrounding sarsen stones about 2600 BCE so that dates its use as roughly in the time of the Early Bronze Age, the age that featured the Minoan Civilisation, the heyday of the Minoan Serpent MOTHER Goddess who figures so prominently in the underpinnings of Constellation Ophiuchus though Her entitlement to bear the label “serpent holder” has been veiled for thousands of years.
Whether you believe ot not, whether you like it or not, the Ophiuchus (the serpent holder) has forayed into the astrological picture. Now, thousands are left wondering what personalitiy traits the 13th zodiac sign entails. The real answer is that, as an Ophiuchus (Ophiuchan), your personality traits are in line with, well, your existing personality traits.
The 13th sign of the zodiac, unlike the other 12 signs is actually associated with a real person, Imhotep. Imhotep, who lived in the 27th Century BCE in Ancient Egypt, was also known as ‘Aesclepius’ by the Ancient Greeks. However, the attributes are the same under either name.
In researching spiritual anthropology and the genealogy of the gods beginning with the Myth of Asclepius (written in Patriarchal times), we are able to navigate our way through the tangled web of history and myth to find the original serpent holder was not a god but a GODDESS of nature whose place was usurped and whose stories were rewritten by warrior culture conquerors. Not even her name survived the cover-up.
Interestingly, HIStory tells us that when the temples of the gods and goddesses of Asia Minor and the Mediterranean were torn down by the soldiers of Constantine to super-impose Jesus Christ over them, it was Asclepius, the Greek and Roman God of Healing & Wisdom, whose profile and job description (World Savior) was usurped.
13 The Magic Number and the Return of the Serpent Queen
13 is also number of Triple Goddess (1 Goddess, 3 = in three incarnations: Virgin, Mother and Crone, together 4 = powerfull number of female principle) who – as a symbol and divine power – ruled Terra already 800,000 years ago (the oldest found figurines of the Mother Goddess).
Here’s the real reason – for which both a constellation, zodiac sign, symbol and number – were forgotten, supplanted from the consciousness of the people and cursed.
The third revival of Asclepius and the second coming of Christ are ONE and the SAME As God of Wisdom & Healing, the savior role of Asclepius was implied and latent. For it to be actualised, he did have to be thrown under the bus by his successor-in-interest, Jesus of Nazareth.
So I concede, the 13th Constellation does have CHRIST properties.
However, the Goddess is what is supposed to be there, not Asclepius, and not Jesus. Christianity abhorred the snake.
Geraldine Gesell argues that the snake goddess was not a household goddess as no snake goddess has ever been found in a true domestic context. Rather, the “Snake Goddess” had the broader function of universal Mother or Earth Goddess and was thereby principally a fertility deity.
Something did amazingly happen in 2012 – the age of the Serpent Queen returned.
I guess… although I am an agnostic and anyway not confess any human religion, I believe that humanity should know of what huge part of its history was been robbed. Not knowing your own roots, how can you build a bright future for next generations? By wandering in the dark …?
