Scratching the surface of Glycon’s cultus makes me realize how much Alan Moore’s offhanded down-talking of him as a fake god has distorted my appreciation of his historical place. I’ve been fidgeting a bit to see what I can do with google maps, so here is a crude map of how his cultus flashes across the ancient world following Alexander of Aboniteichus calling himself Glycon’s prophet.
This post comes together at the crossroads of three trajectories. The first, mentioned in this post, is the potential that the Watchers are the zodiacal constellations. The second is Aryeh Kaplan’s (Sefer Yetzirah in Theory and Practice) discussion of the two serpents in Kabbalistic lore, one being Draco the constellation, the other being the ecliptic. The third is a vision I had a while ago around spirits dancing down toward the earth on the back of a great snake.

This material provided me with the clearest examples of how William interacted with the spirits to shape the system in cooperation with them and with his wife’s mediumistic talents. While William is often an active questioner, this material sees William proposing terms, developing his own concepts, and querying after his sense of the matter with the spirits.
Today has been one of those days that has brimmed over with synchronicities surrounding my spiritual work. I’m still a touch punchy and this post may follow suit. Be kind. Hopefully, it will become more clear over time as I dwell upon its contents. Some of this only makes sense if you follow the links.
Do you ever feel the urge to say something and then discover a message for yourself from spirit within it? Of course you have; it’s just the spiritual side of the Freudian slip. So, in response to Gordon’s post about neotheosophy I caught clear sight of the relationship between Hod and sattva. Despite the fact that we put Hod on the pillar of severity, it has profound ties to the pillar of mercy, in a way that mirrors the ties between Netzach and the pillar of severity.
