With Naga Panchami - the Celebration of Serpents - just concluded, it seemed an admirable time to return to something we have oft mentioned in passing in the past.

On Wyrd Women Dwelling In Waters Handing Out Swords As The Supernal Basedness For A System Of Government – Part 2 – The Coronation Of The DemiGod King : Hercules, Indra-Varuna And Those Rendered Alike To Him

If you've just joined us ... a brief catch-up on The Story So Far.  A few days ago, an associate asked about the relationship of the Goddess to the coronation of a King in comparative Indo-European terms.

The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part One – Demeter Erinyes, Poseidon]
