universal name first divulged by the
Brotherhood in the late 1990's for a very ancient Goddess who is both a
Warrior Goddess and a Goddess of Heka.
The Great Liberating Mother also
functions as a Liminal Point
to the Underworld, and
is a Goddess of Ecstatic Liberation
of the Spirit. Her current name is
Babalon, but She has gone by many names in Her many different incarnations,
such as Kybele, Helena, Pakhet, Bona
Dea, Astarte, and Inanna to name but a few. Many of Her incarnations
are secret. Many of the incarnations attributed to Her by moderns are false, for
such is Her power that many cultures seek to imitate Her in their own Goddesses.
Her symbols are that of the Crescent Moon and Sun conjoined which is Her power of
Ecstatic Liberation of the Spirit,
the Serpent which is Her power
over Heka and the Underworld, and Lions
supporting Her Throne or pulling Her Chariot which is Her power as warrior-king.
She also carries the Wheel of
Seven Spokes or Star of Seven Points both of which refer to the Seven Guiding Principles. She is seen as the Torch-bearer in Her role as Liminal Gateway for
Spirit, similar in function to
Helena, Lucifer, Hekate,
Baphometis and many others. She is also historically the Morning Star and the Evening
Star, depending upon which role is being emphasized, both of which are seven pointed.
