Whether scholarly, neopagan, Druidic or following the esoteric instructions for “Necronomicon” gatework following the ancient Anunnaki tradition observed in Babylon by the original Mardukite Zuists, the annual BELTANE period has always held a special significance, particularly regarding Joshua Free’s ongoing development of the modern Mardukite Zuism movement and its evolving futurist metahuman spiritual technology known as Systemology.
NECRONOMICON The Complete Anunnaki Legacy (2020 Master Edition) by Joshua Free
Modern significance of BELTANE in connection to the Anunnaki or Necronomicon regards the “North Gate” or “Celestial Gate” of the “Northern Star”—what was once most visibly aligned to DRACO and which is now seen in direct relation to the BIG DIPPER or GREAT BEAR constellation—all of which is addressed in —Mardukite Liber-R, contained in the “Necronomicon Revelations” paperback or “Gates of the Necronomicon” hardcover by Joshua Free or ; also within the hardcover omnibus anthology, “Necronomicon: The Complete Anunnaki Legacy” as excerpted here:
Grade-II Route of Mesopotamia & Grade-I Route of Druidism and Dragon Legacy
“Simon’s research into the ‘Celestial Gate’ is intriguing. He suggests that the ‘Great Bear’ constellation is the ‘astral key’ that activates the Gate from the earth perspective, when the bear ‘hangs from its tail.’ How curious—this actually happens every day! But, it is not only the event itself, but the timing or threshold that is significant—it is when the remaining ‘stars are aligned’ that the Gate is functional from our side.”
“Where much has been written elsewhere concerning Samhain—October 31—when this ‘Celestial Gate’ is most accessible from the other side, it is really at the other half of the year, at Beltane—April 30—when this alignment happens shortly before midnight, a natural ceremonial time for such mystical work. If this is correct, it suggests a convergence in ‘earth-time’ with ‘heaven-time.’ Ceremonial execution would then require a delicate calculation of sun-cycles, lunar-cycles and stellar-cycles. So, now the seeker must put the ‘gate-theory’ into perspective. Not only is it something that happens “naturally” on a daily basis, it is observed (and apparently ceremonially effective) only under the most opportune times, and then too, subject to a calculation that might be mistaken. Where then, does the fear come from for ‘leaving this gate open for too long’…?”

Elsewhere in Joshua Free’s Liber-R, the Lovecraftian connection is further cemented:
“A quick consolidation of Lovecraftian lore combined with Simonian and Mardukite ‘Gate’ research and lore, all point toward a the threshold time taking place during the ancient annual ‘Beltane’ festival. Popularized by the Celts and Druids, there does appear to be some ‘otherworldly’ significance here. Lovecraft explains that the time is optimal for receiving primordial knowledge via the ‘whisperer in darkness’—strangely echoing the ceremonial magician’s ‘voice in the silence,’ alluded to in various transcendental occult materials. Lovecraft writes in his prose of the same name, titled: “The Whisperer in Darkness”—
“Former experience had told him May Eve – the hideous Sabbat night of underground European legend – would probably be more fruitful than any other date, and he was not disappointed…”

Developments of the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization) continued on into the years that followed the original Beltane observation and the development of “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible” in 2009. The following Beltane 2010 was just as monumental for the developments of the Mardukite esoteric research library. The following is excerpted from the “Mardukite Chamberlains Chronicles” kept during their second year of research and discovery of the Grade-II Core. The full text is included in the Mardukite Master Course, of which Grade-II appears in the appendix of “Necronomicon: The Complete Anunnaki Legacy.”
ORIGINAL 2009 BROADCAST:
Mardukite Beltane (May 1) 2010 observations were synchronized with the release of two very important additions to Grade-II; GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON (Liber-50) and THE BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU (Liber-W), which found its way into later editions of NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE as Tablet-W.
Liber-50 increases an effective working understanding of the basic nature and functions of the “Star-Gate-System” esoterically embedded beneath the structure of the ancient Mardukite Babylonian systemology. The discourse includes critical information regarding the evolution of Babylonian (and Mardukite) culture from a former “Sumerian” one. Yet, when we compare the lore to the earlier delivered Grade-I work—particularly the Liber-D Series—it is clear that Babylon is the absolute “end all” of the Seeker’s pursuits in unifying an understanding of the Human Condition across the timeline of history. In fact, in Babylon, we witness a significant turning point affecting nearly all cultural traditions, beliefs and spirituality emerging after.
Once a seeker has been “initiated” into the great “Mesopotamian Mysteries” of the Ancient School and Babylonian temple of Nabu to Marduk, only then do we find reason to believe we can tap into even higher realizations of Awareness. It is only when the Seeker has approached true understanding hidden beneath the tradition explored in Grade-II in relative Self-Honesty that there is any chance of gleaning the greatest kept secrets of Babylon—the ancient equivalent to a global conspiracy that is still very present with us today, and which becomes the primary subject of the Grade-III material of “Mardukite Systemology.”
OVER TEN YEARS AGO the newly formed band of “Mardukite Chamberlains” (“Mardukite Research Organization”)—members of the underground “spiritual,” “occult” and “esoteric archaeology” community—received instructions during meditation for a synchronized global meditation working that would unleash a “New Age” of global consciousness on planet Earth toward the reconstruction of the “Anunnaki paradigm” in everyday life and the establishment of a “New Babylon” order in dedication to the “New Thought” principles of human potential and spiritual evolution gleaned from the most ancient tablets on the planet… and that was back in 2009…
Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism: A Master Course in Druidry for Modern Druids by Joshua Free (2020 Master Edition, 7 books in one)
Here we are in 2020 and we take a moment to look back on the legacy of Beltane both ancient and modern in this miniseries of blogposts!
“The Belteine or Beltane festival is named such after the ‘Fires of Bel’ or ‘Belinos’—most likely a remnant of Bel Marduk or known elsewhere in the Canaanite mutation of ‘Baal.’ It was actual on the dawn of an ancient Belteine when the Tuatha d’Anu arrived in Ireland and set fire to their own ships. The most commonly known tradition of May Day is the ‘May Pole’—a symbol of the ‘World Tree’ that is traditionally danced around while weaving ribbons hung from the top. ‘May Day’ is, of course, May 1st, though the festival begins the night before—on May’s Eve—with the construction of two large bonfires built side-by-side, which are then consecrated to Bel before set aflame. Ancient Celts marched their cattle in procession between these two flames as they led them out to pasture for the year. Some evening observances may be held, however this following rite is typically observed at noon.”
—from The Elven-Druid Grimoire contained in The Elvenomicon by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.
It is in many ways possible that proto-Druid and Celtic observations of “Beltane” resulted from the most significant event of the ancient nearly prehistoric legacy: the arrival of the Tuatha d’Anu (or Tuatha de Dannan) in Western Europe.
“Lore suggests that the ‘Children of the Stars’ [Tuatha d’Anu] arrived in Keltia on ‘Beltane’—May’s Eve—approximately five thousand years ago. The race or clan was socially represented by four primary ‘leaders’ or ‘warriors,’ each from a different city or capital in their ‘homelands’—wherever this might be, as the subject turns to the domain of legend…”
—Druid’s Handbook by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.
“They [Tuatha d’Anu] arrived there on Beltane (May Day or May’s Eve) ‘concealed in a magical fog or mist.’ While the European mainland lay off to the East and South of Ireland, the Tuatha D’Anu arrived from the North and West of the Island, settling first in the mountains of Western Ireland. This led many to believe they were the ‘People of the North’ or that they came from somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. But, their ships, on the other hand, were said to be of a “sky-nature,” which somehow caused an uncanny solar eclipse for the first three days of their arrival…”
—The Elvenomicon by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.
Beltane is an unusual festival or annual cross-quarter event that is literally called the “Fires of Bel” or “Bel-teine.” The name “Bel” for “lord” or “god” being an obvious import from the Ancient Mystery School. In Celtic and Druidic tradition, this festival stood apart from all of the others as the most supreme “Fire Festival” in Keltia, observed with a bonfire, which could only be ignited by the most esoteric means:
“Many scholars today are of the mind that the Druid’s Gem ‘no larger than an apple’ was manufactured from glass—a substance linking the item to both the Motherhood of Avalon, residing on the ‘Isle of Apples’ (alternatively, the ‘Isle of Glas’ or ‘Glastonbury’) and the Welsh alchemical Druid fire-workers—the ‘Pheryllt.’ It has been further suggested by certain scholars, notably Lady Flavia Anderson in ‘The Ancient Secret,’ that the original serpent’s eggs were spheres of clear crystal used to light the Druidic Beltane ‘needfires’ via focused sunlight.”
—Druid’s Handbook by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.
In nearly all cultures that observe it, the annual Beltane threshold on the eve of May is a bridge between worlds, a critical doorway or bridge that greatly mirrors the significances held in regard to Samhain—taking place in “earth-time” exactly opposite in the year on the eve of November. In fact, a note regarding this even appears in The Draconomicon by Joshua Free (also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism), stating “Although these types of evocation seem typical of Samhain, esoteric lore also indicates that the Beltane Gate is actually more accessible from “our” side, at the exactly opposite “peak” of the year.”
TEN YEARS AGO the newly formed band of “Mardukite Chamberlains” (also known as the “Mardukite Research Organization”)—members of the underground “spiritual,” “occult” and “esoteric archaeology” community—received instructions during meditation for a synchronized global meditation working that would unleash a “New Age” of global consciousness on planet Earth toward the reconstruction of the “Anunnaki paradigm” in everyday life and the establishment of a “New Babylon” order in dedication to the “New Thought” principles of human potential and spiritual evolution gleaned from the most ancient tablets on the planet…and that was back in 2009…
[Books displayed throughout this blogpost are current editions featuring specific materials from the “Mardukite Core” applicable to the upcoming April 30 2019 “Mardukite Global Stargate Meditation Ritual Working.” While each title is formatted differently, suggested selections appear in each of these volumes equally.]
The modern “Mardukite” tradition was publicly launched on Summer Solstice 2008—it would take nearly another year before an active group of participants of this brand of “New Thought” and “Mesopotamian Neopaganism” could be formally established, taking place near the Spring 2009 Akiti-Akitu period. And the formal inception of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” and its tradition was to coincide with a synchronized global meditation ritual working in dedication to the post-SumerianBabylonian Anunnaki paradigm—this also became the first official established esoteric organization overtly dedicated to MARDUK—the Anunnaki patron god of Babylon and the first systemology impressed on the human condition and civilization since its former upgrade by the Anunnaki scientistENKI.
When the Mardukites conducted the first Beltane Gate ritual a decade ago, they did not possess the same literary archives maintained today—and by that we mean specifically the “Mardukite Core” of research and experimental development that combined the academic and esoteric aspects of the tradition into a functional modern-day paradigm. This “new” wide-angle paradigm—although inspired by the Ancient Mystery School of Babylon—also includes many elements found in the most ancient and coveted forgotten reserves of the “New Thought” movement, “Druidism” and “Rosicrucianism”—and many volumes have been dedicated to the underground connection between these as well, off-shoots of the main lifeline that have sprung up throughout the course of time and expanding all around the globe…All-as-One.
With an original lack of specific widespread criteria, many chose to observe the “2009 Beltane Gate” individually by practicing intention-based “rites,” “meditations” or “ceremonial expressions” of their own design—dancers danced, artists created, ceremonialists…ceremonied(?)… but the most important part of it all…the world was dedicated and focused together in a combined effort to bring a higher level of realization to global consciousness… and it was quite successful. At the Mardukite Offices in 2009, the original group of esoteric practitioners still heavily relied on the Simon “Necronomicon” structure for their practices—being the primary “occult” contribution of the Babylonian spiritual-gate system prior to the more complete execution developed over the past decade by the Mardukite Research Organization and Council of Nabu-Tutu, a select band of long-term and experienced alumni from within this brand of work. To deliver power and control of the system back to MARDUK, the Seal of Marduk was placed within Gate of Nergal—an esoteric facet that many did not catch or grasp, thinking that the seal and gate were of the same degree…they were not…and this was intentional. Those using the “Simon” motif for their 2019 observations should correctly place the Seal of Marduk within the Gate of Marduk for this operation—and that is, of course, assuming you are using that methodology for your work. Most modern Mardukites have come to better relay their work specifically from the “Mardukite Core” of materials developed independently of other modern revival works and fanciful notions.
For those wishing to observe the “Mardukite Beltane 2019 Global Ritual Meditation Working” in alignment with the tradition reinforced specifically by the modern “Mardukite” movement over the past decade—all of the formal ritual instruction or meditation suggestions for this event are found in the newly revised, refined, updated and most beautifully enhanced pocket hardcover tome:—
Many folks who previously have accessed the materials selected for this expanded edition have chosen to acquire a souvenir copy of the new version in time for use this April 30—when hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of people all over the world are using these rites remotely from their own locations to join energies for the reestablishment of the Anunnaki paradigm in this “New Age” and toward the permanent and physical infrastructure of a New Babylon to ensure the continued growth and success of the modern “Mardukite” efforts permanently into the future!
