Babylonian New Year Festival, “Book of Marduk by Nabu” 10th Anniversary Pocket Hardcover

“In ancient Babylon, the New Year Festival was the central most religio-political ‘Mardukite’ event marking the beginning of the annual cycle.”—observed throughout the world as the start of the Spring season—this March 21, 2019 is distinguished as the 10th Anniversary of the first modern Mardukite revival observation of the Babylonian New Year Festival, the start of a powerful turn of the ‘Wheel of the Year’ leading up to the infamous “Beltane Gate” May’s Eve Festival of the modern “Mardukite Necronomicon Tradition”—also planned as a global ritual meditation working this year!

At the time in “celestial history” when the original Mardukite tradition in Babylon was systematized, the spring equinox observation of Akitu (or Akiti) coincided with the sun entering the “Aries” zone—the zodiacal sign of Marduk. This spring festival symbolized not only agricultural fertility and renewal of the land on earth, but also a restatement or reinforcement of the national position of Marduk and his role in the universe.

To coincide with this incredible 10th Anniversary milestone in the evolution of the modern “Mardukite” paradigm of Mesopotamian Anunnaki Revival—the Joshua Free publishing imprint representing the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press has authorized a special March 21 release of the 10th Anniversary hardcover: THE COMPLETE BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU: A POCKET ANUNNAKI DEVOTIONAL COMPANION TO BABYLONIAN PRAYERS & RITUALS—A collector’s edition of the long-lost translated cuneiform tablet collection, revealing secret underground methods to acquire direct communication with what some call “alien intelligences” via a program of ancient-styled Babylonian-inspired devotion, reviving the same techniques as ancient Mardukite priests of the Sumerian Anunnaki in Mesopotamia.

[This book may be used to assist annual personal observation of the Spring Akiti/Akitu or Zagmuk Babylonian Festival and the Mardukite Beltane Gate ritual meditation work, with additional advice for daily rites throughout the year.]

The Akkadian name for the final day of the festival—Akiti or Akitu—translates roughly to “On Earth, Life.” Most scholars usually only recognize the “agricultural” significance and not necessarily the “political” and “mystical” functions of the observation. True, the Akitu festival took place twelve days before the annual crops were planted—but, this large public national “celebration” also reconfirmed supremacy of Marduk and his position in the Babylonian Anunnaki Pantheon, making it the single most important ancient “holiday” for the Mardukite tradition.

This amazing new 10th Anniversary collector’s edition of THE COMPLETE BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU reflects a very real modern philosophical and meta-spiritual “New Thought” movement aligned specifically with the Anunnaki paradigm. In ancient Babylon, this was famously celebrated among the followers of Marduk—recognized among the pantheon as patron of Babylon city and self-made Anunnaki “King of the Gods” for the “Mardukite” or “Babylonian” branch of the Mesopotamian mythos, with the assistance of the Nabu priesthood of scribes. In commemoration of the anniversary release of a “complete” BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU, additional portions once released separately as The Book of Zagmuk by Nabu are also included, detailing the annual Spring Equinox Festival or Babylonian “Akiti”/”Akitu” New Year Rituals

After a time of gods had come and gone, the priests and kings continued to observe these ceremonial customs using representative “images” or statuary to symbolized the “divine presence” of Marduk and Nabu as they made a procession each year through the streets of Babylon. Each of the twelve festival days begins at dawn. The High Priest of the “Temple of Marduk”—the E.SAGILA or “House of Marduk”—goes and prepares the temple and other ceremonial areas before dawn, then makes a “general invocation” to Marduk, before the “image” (statue) of the god in his shrine…

Mardukite Research Organization & Publishing Group : 2016 Year-in-Review | New Babylon Rising eZine

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

MARDUKITE YEAR-8 (2016) proved monumental in furthering the work of the Mardukite Research Organization and distribution of Mardukite Truth Seeker Press titles all over the world!

cybervampscollectionsmall Following the revolutionary CyberVamps debut volume in 2015, THE VAMPYRE’S BIBLE, the Beltane 2016 release of CYBERNOMICON completely reevaluated the complimentary synchronicity of the complete works of modern mystic and hybrid messenger Joshua Free — whether dubbed “Mardukite” or “CyberVamp” or “Systemology,” (etc.) the bigger picture for our times has become clearer than ever before!

pherlytcoll23 Continuing the widely anticipated and highly controversial Books of Fferyllt series first introduced with volume one of the BOOK OF PHERYLLT in 2014 with an emphasis on the “Dragon” in history, magic and human consciousness, Pheryllt neodruid initiate Joshua Free provided the second installment BOOK OF PHERYLLT in time for Samhain 2016. It emphasizes the secrets of “Tree Ogham” and herbalism in druid tradition. (Both the CYBERNOMICON and PHERYLLT VOL 2 were first published as limited edition hardcovers for Mardukite Chamberlains prior to paperback release.)

2016reissuecollectionsmall As it turned out, 2016 was a banner year for “Anniversary Editions” commissioned by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press commemorating long-standing underground occult classics developed by Joshua Free, dating back to his years writing under the name “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990s.

DRACONOMICON, first published underground in 1996 for the Mystics of the Earth (Draconic Celtic Lodge of Druids) celebrates its 20TH ANNIVERSARY this year! This original classic by neodruid Joshua Free predated the authors more recent official work with New Forest Centre of Douglas Monroe and the Books of Pheryllt literary series.

JOSHUA FREE’s unpublished manuscript titled “Applied Druidology” in 2001 served as reference material for later works including “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Arcanum.” It appeared underground under the title “Druidry” in 2012 and has now been re-released to the general public for its 15TH ANNIVERSARY edition as the THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY, complimenting a growing line of pocket eco-editions from the Mardukite Publishing Group.

BoZthumbcvr In addition to the CyberVamps and Pheryllt Druid paradigms, the Mardukite-specific work from Mesopotamia also saw restoration this year, including a new 5TH ANNIVERSARY pocket eco-edition of the ceremonial guide to the Babylonian Akitu New Year Festival in the BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU. Furthermore, a new edition of the “Book of Sajaha the Seer” reappeared as the LOST BOOK OF SHAYAHA.


Plans are still being developed for the National Mardukite NexGenCon scheduled for the August 2017 eclipse at Carhenge, Nebraska following a Wizards of the Wasteland spiritual retreat in the South Dakota Badlands.

Mardukite Zagmuk NexGen Spring Equinox Festival, CyberVamps DJs LIVE! in Denver (March 20)

Celebrating their first official LIVE CyberVamps podcast (called an #EVM Broadcast — indicating Electronic Vampyre Music), CyberGoth DJs Nabu & Kyra Kyber appeared last night (March 20) in DENVER to observe the Spring Equinox (Babylonian Festival of Zagmuk/Akiti) and commemorate the crossing of keyboardist extraordinaire KEITH EMERSON, from the infamous 70’s symphonic rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, often referred to as ELP.

EQUI-NIGHT, ZAGMUK NIGHT

EQUI-NIGHT, ZAGMUK NIGHT

March 20-21st is traditionally observed in both ancient and New Age traditions as a celebration of the new Spring Season — marked by the passage of the Sun into the astronomical domain of Aries and heralding the phenomenon known as the EQUINOX, a point in the year when the duration of night and day are even or equal. This also happens in the Autumn Fall Season — however it is the Spring Equinox that carries the most significant historical and spiritual parallels to what we associate with the Spring Season even today. In ancient Sumer and Babylon, this time is called ZAGMUK or AKITU (Akiti) — coinciding with the Holy Week of modern Easter observances…

Mardukite New Year Rituals of Ancient Babylonian Akiti / Akitu Spring Equinox Festival

The Processional Way in Ancient Babylon for the New Years Akiti / Akitu (Zagmuk) Festival

The Processional Way of MARDUK and NABU in Ancient Babylon for the New Years Akiti / Akitu (Zagmuk) Festival

THE BOOK OF ZAGMUK (available in Babylonian Magick, Wizards of the Wastelands or the Ceremonial Color Edition) is the Official Mardukite-Anunnaki companion to the Babylonian New Year Festival, known as Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk, originally available exclusively to the modern Mardukite Research Organization and Mardukite Chamberlains.


Deluxe Color Edition

Deluxe Color Edition

THE BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU (forthcoming as a pocket companion) is a specially prepared ceremonial text with selected ‘tablet collections’ that combine materials from the Mardukite Wizards of the Wastelands in conjunction with critical excerpts from Joshua Free’s NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE, essentially comprising the internal methods of the ‘Order of Nabu‘ to establish Mardukite ‘religious’ continuity in Babylon and MARDUK’s royal legitimacy at the height of the Babylonian pantheon using the Babylonian New Year Festival, Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk.

zagakitu

“The Babylonian observation of the annual (solar) year starts with the ‘Mardukite’ observation of ‘zagmuk’ – meaning ‘the beginning of the year’ or ‘new year’. This 12-day festival is fixed to arrange its height at the beginning of the month of Nissanu, the ‘Spring Equinox’ or March 21st, also coinciding with the beginning of the astrological wheel, when the sun enters Aries.” The Book of Zagmuk by Nabu

zagmuk

The festival is significant for its contributions toward solidifying both the religious and political paradigms of ‘Mardukite’ Babylon. The festival is also known by its Sumerian-derived Akkadian name – A.KI.TI or A.KI.TU – meaning ‘On Earth, Life’. This large public festival observance is a reconfirmation of the supremacy of MARDUK and the Babylonian Pantheon and is probably the single most important ancient ‘holiday’ for the tradition.

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop After the time of gods had come and gone, the priests and kings continued to observe the ceremonial customs using representative statuary to symbolized the ‘divine’ forms of Marduk and Nabu as they make a procession through the streets of Babylon and are placed in the temples to witness a dramatic reenactment of the Enuma Elis and other rites and rituals that commemorate the ‘Mardukite’ tradition (paradigm) and seal the position of the priests and king as the ‘chosen’ ambassadors and intermediaries between the ‘gods’ of heaven and the people of earth.

Babylonian Astrology & Age of Aquarius: How the Sumerians Measured the Heavens

10514761_482280898571526_123244564401630173_n2

“The ancient Sumerians understood the connection between cycles, time and mathematics. In addition to the pragmatic use of the wheel or circle, they also developed the initial calculations of the circle to be 360 degrees. Their use of base-60 ‘sexagesimal’ math in the systematic measurement of time has carried with humanity to this day…”

[This mardukite.com blog post is officially excerpted from Liber 51/52, available in the anthology Mesopotamian Religion by Joshua Free. It is also available as the stand-alone title: Sumerian Religion II, and in the Mardukite Year-2 Anthology: Gates of the Necronomicon by Joshua Free.]

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop The annual year was originally only divided into three seasons: beginning, middle and end. A year in Babylonia was separated into a cycle of 12 periods of 30 degrees or days. These periods, equated to the ‘moon’, were called ‘moonths’ or more appropriately ‘months’. Of course, the sky-wise priests were aware of the actual appearance of 13 lunar cycles in a year, so an additional shortened month was acknowledged to make the cycle fit. In most cases, a ‘new moon’ meant a ‘new month’ and so the days counted in a month are the days counted in the progression of a moon – though naturally the disparities between lunar and solar time had to be accounted for, and with time the ‘Chaldeans’ had perfected it.

cuneisdgsdg The annual cycle was marked distinctly by two primary religious festivals – the spring festival of Akitu and the winter festival of Zagmuk. Both appear to be represented or distinguished by the symbol of ‘divine marriage’, later meaning the relationship between the ruling king and his lands.

Originally, however, the more popular fertility interpretation of these festivals, particularly in the spring, were based on land renewal and with the development and spread of these tradition, Akitu became known as Ostara – the pagan Easter – in dedication to Ishtar (Inanna). Not too surprisingly, the pre-Christian account incorporated into the symbolism of the later Judeo-based traditions also includes the proverbial theme of resurrection – in our case: the infamous story of Ishtar’s ‘descent‘ into the ‘Underworld’, where she is perceived of as ‘dead’ for three days.

vlcsnap-2011-08-13-21h32m43s221 Given the way modern calendars are oriented, the start of each ancient month would be considered near the ‘middle’ of current months – much like the seasonal observations. Although the festivals in ancient times were oriented to the naturally occurring solstices and equinoxes, it was often customary to observe them ceremonially during the closest full moon. All of this gave way to a generally ‘fluid’ incorporation of time into society that is varied in its interpretations among modern scholars.

The ancients made use of ‘water-clocks’ at night and ‘sun-clocks’ during the day. But more important to the survival of an agricultural society then gauging the minutes of a day for a ‘time-punch’ was the tracking of the annual cycle for planting and harvesting. Quite different than what the remainder of the Western World has familiarity with, the seasonal cycles in the deserts of Babylonia are unique. We have a recognizable summer in June, July and August where there is not rain and nothing grows – as we might expect – but then the region is plunged right into its rainy season in September, and farmers must be ready to plant their barley by October with a harvest necessary before the summer sun returns.

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI A different system of observation was used to calculate and measure ‘divine time’ in relation to ‘earth time’. This gave rise to what contemporaries call an ‘age’ – such as the current ‘age’ of Pisces and the forthcoming ‘age’ of Aquarius. Apart from the garbled nonsense of today’s horoscopes, the observation of zodiacal ages and alignments during the year are very real events. For whatever credibility the modern mind might wish to give the ancient astrologie omen tablets, the ability to perfectly chart time over long periods by using verifiable astronomical events, that we can even rely on today as investigators into this ancient culture, is quite impressive by any standards.

We can establish the chronological procession of the ages, but not necessarily a definition of when they have absolute turning points. They are measured in 2,160 year periods (72 x 30), connected to their ‘domain’ of visibility in the ‘Celestial Sphere’. The progression is visible in the stars but the clear boundary line that defines each is in many ways obscure. For example, when specifically does the current age enter ‘Aquarius’? Counting backward, the Mardukite school of thought might have suggestive input to apply.

259202494_2439cd36a1_o2 Following earlier thwarted attempts to solidify global rulership, the real Babylonian Reformation by the Anunnaki god MARDUK, with the aid of Nabu, occurred as a result of the ‘Age of Aries’ having arrived and ‘promised power’ not being ‘passed’ to him. This would have to be circa 2150 B.C., when the movement became notably public.

How long prior to this, pointing to the turn of the ‘Age of Aries’, would they have waited? If it were only ten years, then the Piscean Age really would have been marked by the birth of Jesus Christ – exactly 2,160 years later – notoriously represented by the fishes. Other ‘scholarly’ dates for the start of the Age of Aries include 2200, 2150, 2000 and 1875 B.C. Based on these figures, this ‘era’ of reportedly ‘new consciousness’ could be in effect now, later in this century, in the year 2150 or even closer to 2600…

Time, as we have found no different today then yesterday, is indeed entirely relative!

Marduk, Anunnaki god of Babylon, Son of Enki, Father of Nabu in Mardukite Tradition

mesopotamianmagicheadline

MARDUK — “The blatant industrious and expansive power of Jupiter has been placed at the height of most ‘Sky God’ Olympian pantheons as Zeus or a similar figure. The name (Jupiter) comes from the Romans: Dys Pater, meaning Father-God. This energetic current commands outright worldly success as well as the magic of spirits: command of the hierarchies…

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop This portion of the mardukite.com blog post is extracted from the “Book of Marduk by Nabu” (Liber W) also available in the recent commemorative “Babylonian Magick” anthology by Joshua Free.

NABU SPEAKS: “The Elder Gods originally attributed this position to Enlil in Sumer. I personally heralded my father, Marduk, into Enlilship of the “younger pantheon” in Babylon. Our tradition there, and in Egypt, was wholly based on him being the centralized figure. You may invoke my father for his strength and power, as well as a petitioner to the Elder Gods. He is exalted as the Master of Magicians, carrying the mysteries of my grandfather, Enki, to Babylon, and bestowing the traditions upon me to relay.” (Liber W)

bookofmardukthumb “The original designation of Jupiter is 50, the number attributed first to Enlil and later to Marduk by the Babylonians, who first was given the number 10. The color of the current is purple, but also airy and fiery colors (yellow, orange, black). This energy is preferred by many leaders and law enforcing folk, lending to those who are pure to receive it, the power to command the material world.” (Liber W)

“Marduk was proclaimed King of the Gods, replacing Enlil, and the other gods were required to pledge allegiance to him and to come to reside in Babylon where their activities could be easily supervised. This usurpation of Enlilship was accompanied by an extensive Babylonian effort to forge the ancient texts. The most important texts were rewritten and altered so as to make Marduk appear as the Lord of the Heavens, the Creator…”
Zecharia Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet (1976)

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop The name Marduk is actually a modernization taken from the Semitic “meri-dug” [Merodach]. The oldest version of a similar spelling AMAR.UTU [a.mar-utu.ki = “light of the sun on earth”] often translated by contemporaries as “solar calf” or “son of the sun” give some background to Marduk’s esteem. (Liber 50)

[The remainder of this mardukite.com blog post is extracted from a New Babylon Rising article derived from Liber 50 – now available in the new edition of Mesopotamian Religion by Joshua Free.]

zar
Being the foremost son of Enki, he gained power quickly. The Semitic name “Maerdechai” that came from the Chaldeo-Babylonian [silik-mul.u-khi] name meaning “Marduk is God.” The more common MAR.DUG means “son
of the pure mound,” and is thought to be connected to the pyramids in not only Mesopotamia, but in Egypt, where he raised himself as the leader of a third party (interpretation) of gods – the Egyptian Pantheon – as “Amon-Ra,” [and possibly also Horus] again identifying himself with the “solar” current.

cuneisdgsdg Marduk’s decision to raise himself to a monotheistic-like “God” status created new political issues for the Anunnaki on Earth – creating a reason for there to be tensions between the two lineages (of Enki and Enlil) for supremacy on earth (and the right to install their own lineages and chosen humans as kings in their stead).

THE RACE OF MARDUK…

Naturally, the other Anunnaki were less than appreciative of Marduk’s desire to rule over them, although the Age of Aries, his sign, did come and go and he was not left to his own in Babylon (or in Egypt). This seems to have been a disciplinarian act by the other gods.

babel98769878 Assuming the most common interpretation, Marduk was to lose rights of kingship “in heaven” for the taking of a “human” wife instead of his betrothed half-sister Inanna Ishtar. His argument was that Sarpanit (his consort) was a descendent of Adapa [see the Necronomicon Anunnaki
Bible
], and thus of Anunnaki bloodline; that Ishtar was no more interested in the union than he was, and it had not affected her rise to power; and finally, if not “in heaven,” why not “on earth”? The resulting catastrophes in the Middle East are evidence enough that this betrothal did not occur peacefully.

A MARDUKITE LEGACY BORN

In Assyrian accounts, Marduk, as the great “father-god” Assur or Ashur [“Ashshur”], seems to emerge as if from nowhere, leading some scholars in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to consider the idea of Marduk being a fictitious figure imagined into being for purely political reasons.

Sarpanit [also Sarapan or Zarpanitu] is mentioned often in Babylonian prayer but does not appear in any of the significant mythic tablet cycles. She achieves an elevated status by her relationship with Marduk, and together, they are the parents of Nabu. At the spring equinox “A.KI.TI” festival she is the “spring-maiden” of fertility festivals in Babylon…
