NTRW from the Book of Doors: Tepi-Aui-Un
By Temple of MAAT-TEHUTI
The NTR of NTRW: NTR NTRW is an expression of the absolute. The symbol for NTR was believed by Wallis Budge to be an axe. We now believe it to be a flag or pennant. It’s the standard that’s placed in front of or on top of the temple to signify the NTR. Two modern day spiritual systems use flags in ways that are similar to their use in KMT. In Tibet the prayer flag has a mantra written on it. When the wind blows the vibration of the spiritual energy is activated which extends the divinity’s blessing to the surrounding area. In Voudon tradition flags are designed according to the direction of the spirits. The flags develop and collect psychic power in them.
In KMT the pole of the flag is symbolically related to the tree. The Tree of Life is the Tree of Nut that restores life and energy to both NTR and people. The tree is also in contact with both heaven and earth. Every part of a tree works to sustain life. Its roots absorb nutrients from the earth, its leaves absorb nutrients from the air, and all energy is transformed into the sap that nourishes itself and other forms of life. The cloth of the flag is made of a natural material that represents the crossing of cosmic coordinates. The flag is activated by Shu-Tefnut the NTRW of air.
(Note: modern day scientific data informs us that magnetism and gravity not air are the two forces that separate Earth-Geb from Nut-Cosmos. Shu and Tefnut should also be considered the twin NTRW of magnetism and gravity.) Continue reading
Esoterism and MDW NTR Pt. 2
A re-interpretation of Chaps. 3 & 4 of Esoterism and Symbol by R. A. Schwaller deLubicz
By Temple of MAAT-TEHUTI
The cerebral organ operates in stages. The first stage consists of your five senses. The senses acknowledge and record observations. The second stage consists of your memory. The memory compares the recorded ideas. The third stage is reason, which operates on a different level and will be dealt with later for the sake of clarity.
The senses are the organs we use to become aware of the principle elements.
– Touch belongs to the Earth element.
– Taste belongs to the water element.
– Smell belongs to the air element.
– Sight belongs to the fire element.
Our senses are not aware of an activity until they can oppose it with resistance of a similar nature.
Our ability to touch or physically feel things lets us become aware of everything that forms a material obstacle to the body. Touch is the Earth element. Our ability to taste is only possible when something is Continue reading
Tantra for Women
by Ishtara (1999) [Edited]
Many women carry traumatic imprints of an age of injury, humiliation and degradation, in their wombs and bodies. These memories are reaffirmed not only as women experience objectification of their bodies, forceful sex, painful childbirth, but also through unfulfilled, incomplete orgasms. Most women choose to compromise their vast potential by remaining in a state of denial about their own sexual needs, wants and desires. Conditioned by society to feel insecure about their bodies and to compete with their sisters for available men, women feel disenfranchised and seldom realize their full sexual prowess.
How do we, as women, reclaim our sexual power?
The first step is to stop denying and to inform ourselves as to what has happened to women – how we have lost our power to patriarchal religions that deny both our sexuality and our spirituality. Since our sexuality and spirituality are inextricably connected, denying either of them denies our wholeness. Such denial leaves us fragmented beings searching for an identity which doesn’t lie in the inaccurate models of a male dominated, sexually repressive culture. The only models of women that the patriarchal religions have provided for both men and women are those of the virgin-mother or the whore. Continue reading
Tantra for Men
by Ishtara (1999) [Edited]
My purpose here is to explore how men have been wounded by lack of sexual initiation, or social factors, and to suggest some initial steps men can take to further healing.
As an instructor of basic Tantric practices and as a sexual healer, I have loved many men in my life. However, it is with a limited confidence that I approach the subject of male sexual wounding because I am not a man. I can’t access the same resonance as when I talk about women. Nevertheless, I have seen, felt and heard men’s wounding and the unnecessary suffering that results.
Attempting to understand how a man experiences himself as a sexual being requires that we take a closer look at how we’ve all been wounded. We’ve all been victims of a socialization and discrimination Continue reading
New Moon in Pisces, March 9th, 2016 – Wu Wei
By Aeternalight, 14 February 2016
Wu Wei is one of the most important (if not the most important) tenets in Taoism; this Chinese expression can be loosely translated as “non action” or “non doing” – a mode of consciousness that seems perfectly suited to the yielding, transcendent nature of Pisces.
Taoist philosophy recognizes that the Universe works harmoniously according to a natural order governed by unalterable laws; Wu Wei, which is not to be mistaken for inertia or passivity, is the art of effortlessly, graciously swimming with this current – ultimately becoming vessels of the Tao itself, thus responding to life in the most spontaneous way possible.

A Dark Moon, A Dark Sun, a Full House in Pisces
By Sarah Fuhro, March 4 2016 [Edited]
A meeting has been called in the sign of Pisces. Gathered together are Mercury, the messenger; Neptune, the visionary; Ceres, the earth mother; the new Moon, queen of cycles; the Sun, a king in eclipse; Chiron, the wounded healer; and the South Node in Pisces, the location and timing of this solar/lunar event.
The flavor of this stellar event is Pisces; the theme is compassion, intuition, mystical knowledge, music, and addiction to what can’t be seen, but can only be felt: A Love Supreme. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clC6cgoh1sU] John Coltrane’s opus, A Love Supreme sets the tone for this total solar eclipse on Tuesday, March 8. Continue reading
Mercury in Pisces
By Kelly Fox [Edited]
DO: Carry a pocket calendar to help you make dates and excuses.
DON’T: Run away or hide from your problems.
Pisces Mercury is a highly impressionable and artistic planetary influence that is as slippery as water in your hands. Not particularly prone to logical processes, this period brings forth an imaginative, ethereal quality to your way of thinking, especially useful for artistic endeavors such as music, art, or poetry. You yearn for things that nurture your mind and soul.
Highly sensitive to any kind of criticism, you may want to surround yourself with calming sounds and pleasant pictures. Your dreams may be more vivid than usual, you may find answers from otherworldly realms that you would normally not be open to. Your sensitivity to life around you may be an experience that delights you, or makes you a little apprehensive. Continue reading
