THE ANCIENT PAGAN GODDESS ASHTORETH / ABOUT ASHTORETH (Revised 2019)

THE PAGAN GODDESS ASHTORETH (Revised 2019)

A few weeks before October 2016 had arrived, I had a dream in which I was somewhere in a modern times city, standing across a very business oriented street...

There were no traffic, nor many street shoppers walking by, and it seemed to be almost evening, chiefly when I had noticed the natural daylight and shadows, I could see many different shop windows, little stores across the street.

Then, of a sudden I saw across the street a different lady, a woman standing there in front of a shop whose door was closed, she was looking right at me, her face seemed to be overly painted, very pale and white as in make-up white, she was all dressed in white, her clothes hugged her body tight, she seemed short but her silhouette made her look very feminine and beautiful to my eyes.

For just a moment there, time seemed to have stopped, as we both stood still and we stared and looked right at each other, it was silent and deep.

I felt Her!
I felt attracted to her, and I began to walk across the street in order to meet her there.

But as I did walk towards her, she turned around and walked steadfast to the side door of this closed shop and she disappeared as she entered, leaving the door ajar...

I hurried to catch up with her, as I approach the half-closed door, I opened it door in full and I entered this room which was dark.
But as I passed through the door, it was as if somebody had instantly switched the lights on and then I saw this small table dressed with white table cloth, in the middle of it, standing was was a small statuette of the ancient Pagan Goddess Ashtoreth.

I knelt in front of the small table which reminded of makeshift altar, so that I could take a closer look at the statuette, lo and behold, and I knew, I recognized her, I've instantly realized who she was.

She was one and the same with the lady who was standing outside looking at me. She was actually the lady who had just entered that room.

I knew I was in the presence of a Goddess, I told her mentally - I love You! And I felt a tremendous warmth and very good feeling as I woke up.

I had studied the Goddess Ashtoreth when I was younger but I never had any close connection with her at all in this present lifetime, not until this dream connected us.

I do freely and willingly welcome dear Goddess Ashtoreth in my life, in this lifetime.

Blessed Her Be!

Cheers,

ABOUT ASHTORETH

She is a "Babylonian, Canaanite, Semitic, etc... Ancient Pagan Goddess and so forth...

To me, She is a Goddess and to this Species a.k.a. Human Beings!

Ashtoreth also known as Goddess Astarte (Womb / She of the Sacred Womb) a.k.a. Goddess Ishtar a.k.a. Ashtoreth a.k.a. Ashtereth and lastly, a.k.a. Athtarath (meaning "Shameful Thing" because the vowels were on purpose modified by the spiritual-dualistic, patristic/patriarchal and anti-women "Hebrews", and because of their wilful ignorant and at times, intellectually dishonest Prejudice, Bigotry and Hatred for Women's Rights and for the Goddess' precious "Freedom of Sexuality".

*

There were plenty of switching letters and pronunciation of words in order to defame Ancient Goddesses and Gods...

Pagan Gods such a Baal, was compared to Lord of Flies as if referring to a Lord of Pests, filthy God which feasts on excrements/shit, in other words, something dirty, shameful and undesirable, and ergo the absurd & ridiculous appellation of Beelzebub for dear ancient Pagan God Baal.

Of course, there were no Beelzebubs at all, none, not one!

Except, for the entertaining bullshit of the wilful ignorant and/or intellectual dishonest people who invented this rubbish and those stupid enough to subscribe to it!

*

Ashtoreth is She who conceived, but did not bear offsprings to Her lovers.
The Hebrews were wilfully-ignorant and/or intellectually dishonest Haters against Mother Nature, against Natural & Freedom-oriented Sexuality, against GLBT People, Their Rights and Humanity, against Women, Women's Rights and their humanity, against Free-Thinking, against Natural Dignity & Humanity for all.

Ashtoreth, She was the evening star Venus and Goddess of Love, Goddess of all Sexual Desire and Attraction.

She is often confused and merged with Goddesses Anat, Asherah & Atargatis, but She is not any of Them, nor an aspect thereof.

Ashtoreth a.k.a. Ashteroth a.k.a. Ashtereth a.k.a. Astarté.

Ashtoreth's Colours are white, red and black. The acacia & cypress trees are sacred to Her.

Strong Horses, lions are sacred to Her too.

Star inside of a Circle is one of Her symbols.

Horns are also Her symbols, She is Goddess of the Horns, a Horned Goddess of Fertility, of Wealth, of Good Health, of the Pleasure of Good Sexual Happiness...

Horned Crescents, Small Birds, Doves are sacred to Her.

Lunar / Moon Goddess and also Feminine-Star/Feminine-Solar Goddess!
Skyclad a.k.a. Naked in Her Rites/Rituals was always sacred and welcome by Her.

Women's / Feminine Breasts & the Womb / Feminine Belly are sacred to Her.
Her Day - 23rd of April

Again the Planet Venus is sacred to Her.
Fridays and Saturdays are sacred to Her.

*

Ashtoreth's Title: Goddess Queen Of Heaven / Goddess Queen of Sky - Goddess Queen of the Sacred Uraeus/Cobra/Snake of Wisdom and of Freedom, of Empowered-Free-Will.

Goddess of the Power of our Mother Nature, She whose Nature is a part of all Her Creation.

*

GLBT & ASHTORETH

Ashtoreth is a dear Ancient Pagan GODDESS - A GLBTIQA / Non-Binary /  Pansexual & Hetero Oriented Goddess whose Worshippers in the past, some did cross-dress & had GLBT & Hetero oriented Great Rites / Sexual Unions / Sacred Marriages at Her Altar and in Her Honour! All Genders are sacred to Her and All Sexual Preferences are sacred to Her! All Races/Ethnicities/Colours are sacred to Her! Diversity is sacred to Her!

*


When it comes to dear Goddess Ashtoreth folks, I do mean it, I do adore & love Her very much!
Blessed Her Be!

NOTES ON ASHTORETH:
*
A quick Universal / Academic check-up-facts study / googling and it is quite easy to find and establish that the ancient pre-Jewish, pre-Christian Pagan Goddess Ashtoreth predates both the Inventions of Jewish Mythologies and Christian Mythologies.


She predates the Torah and the Bible.
She predates the Spiritual Dualism of Persian Zoroaster.
She predates the Mythological Characters of both Jewish and Christian Mythologies.

And to be honest & clear, She has NOTHING to do with any of Them.
But She has been vilified, maligned and modified in order to suit the New Religions of the time and their socio-politico-religio-commercial interests, greed and desire to rule the world.


She has nothing to do with mythological Titles such as Lucifer, Satan, etc, or with mythological characters such as Demons/Demonesses or Devils, etc.
*
One may surely choose wilful ignorance, or intellectual dishonesty in order to avoid the academic / historical facts. But they're still the facts, folks!
I simply adore this dear Goddess, ah Ashtoreth !!!
*
MIND YOU...


We're all proud Lucifers a.k.a. Bearers of Light a.k.a. "as bright and shining like the Morning Star/Planet Venus in the sky" when we discover our very own Light...

When we dare to love and to respect our very own selves first... And then others too.

And equally also when we are brave, mighty and blessed as the sacred triple blessings of Vulva, Labia & Cervix, also the sacred blessings of the gaping Ring a.k.a. the Anus, and/or equally, as the sacred blessings of the firm Phallus, to bear our very own LIGHT, to shine forth.

*

When we're willing to shine and to become the sole Owners of our own Directions, of our own Paths.
After all, do remember that we're all made of CHANGES in this or in any Elemental World.

*

And of course, when we go home, all we take back along with us is our LIGHT.

*
Also, I also might append the fact that I do not believe at all that the real dear ancient Pagan God Baal would ever approve or appreciate his dear Name being modified/vilified/maligned to some other mythological (invented) name/label of pure mythological poop of/from another mythology/religion!

Thank you! The complexity of the Pagan Goddess Ashtoreth and other ancient Pagan Goddesses and Gods, it took a long time to form in what we look back to, in our times. Mostly, aberrant greedy leaders manipulating socio-religio-politico-commercial interests of the time, they acrimoniously forced upon the masses their carefully-tailored-to-order / make-over version of ancient Pagan Goddesses and Gods. There is much much that most people do not know because they either do not look for the information, or simply do not wish to find the information. The facts, however, the facts always remain for those who dare to search for them.  The blatant Fusion (Melting-together) of Pagan Goddesses and of Gods became common after so many years of it. Different Values and Ways of Conduct which were not originally those of the ancient Pagan Goddesses/Gods were also made-up/tailored-to-order and openly imposed/impinged upon the Pagan Ancient Goddesses and Gods. 

Ergo, yes, it is easy to find confusion when it comes to the Pagan Goddess Ashtoreth, or any other ancient Pagan Goddesses and Gods. 

Best wishes in your search!

Cheers,

Sky

The Phoenicians believe in the trinity with Baal, Ashteorth, and El. El had been promiscuous as Ishtar is the Queen of Heaven. When you tie it in with Marduk, you see she becomes affiliated with Babylon. Ashteorth is a complex dietey because of how she associates with the hunt, war is in her blood. Of course it's deeper than that, and I do appreciate this. Very informative!

Thank you, Lynnea Urania Kaylor! Very well said!

Patriarchal / Spiritual-Dualistic Mythologies & their so-called Religions, they all started humble, penniless, weak, small and unimportant! But once they had forged some Socio-Politico-Commercial support, they've spread their massive weight of bullshit all over, from mass-killings/bloody-wars, to unfair laws to control the population, their thinking and their freedom of expression! They've been, they were awful, brutal and blatantly anti-humanity, anti-Women a.k.a. Women-haters & anti-GLBT just as well.

I am not too surprised at all - Al-Lat (Arabic: اللات‎, Romanized: Al-Lāt, pronounced ( al (i) la:t (u), also spelled Allat, Allatu and Alilat, is a Pre-Islamic Arabian Pagan Goddess worshipped under various associations throughout the entire Peninsula, including MECCA where she was worshipped alongside MANAT and AL'UZZA. The word Allat or Elat has been later employed to refer to various/other Goddesses in the Ancient Near East, in other to confuse Mythologies the worship of the Creatress Supreme Being Goddess. These other Goddesses  do include the goddess Asherah-Athirat.

Whether Christian, Jewish and/or Muslim, their paths, their mythologies do require people either not to know, or simply to ignore a vast body of academic materials from world religions, to world history... And to forsake good world culture, good/logical/reasonable world-common sense and to avoid intellectual honesty by all means.

My answer is, Evolution (Eternal/Infinite Evolution) does come to everybody, whether sooner or later. And it will visit Christians, Jews and Muslims.
