New Babylon Rises as Beltane Blossoms Bloom at Mardukite Borsippa HQ

Each year, since the inception of the modern Mardukite movement, our organization continues to observe the culturally-hybrid gate-festival of May’s Eve, Beltane or Bealtaine. For over a decade, beginning in 2009, hundreds of practitioners from around the globe have unified and synchronized their “meditations” “workings” and “directed intentions” to not only the acknowledgment of support toward the ancient legacy we represent, but also its continuation.

In 2020, the primary intention emphasized relocation of a more permanent U.S. HQ from the original Mardukite Babylonia site to elsewhere within San Luis Valley — our HQ is intended not only for our research library, but also the publishing office of the Joshua Free Imprint, a counseling center and future chapel for The Founding Church of Mardukite Zuism & Systemology Society. (Additionally, elsewhere in the world, David Zibert placed intentions on collaborating for a French-Canadian branch of the Mardukite Chamberlains, a Mardukite Zuist Temple and Systemological Society. He has been consistently providing French translations of our material for several years.)

HAPPY BELTANE from
Mardukite Borsippa HQ
San Luis Valley

Here we are a year later and the May Blossoms are blooming here on the Apricot tree for Beltane over at the new Mardukite Borsippa HQ.

Apricot trees are one of many species that blossom around the end of April, providing natural philosophers and other more earth-oriented folk with observably indicating Beltane and the turning of the Wheel of the Year. This festival was once an annual staple of other mystical traditions and religions throughout ancient Europe, made especially popular by the Celtic Druids.

The May Pole, long reduced academically to little more than a phallic symbol, actually is representative of the World Tree, or else the Gateway between all Worlds — all Universes.

Beltane 2021 also commemorates six months or turning point since Samhain 2021 and the completed realization of the Mardukite Academy of Systemology — a grand unification of all work by Joshua Free since 1995 into a precise methodology of study and practice traversing three “Grades” — referred to as the “Master Grades” composed of:
–“The Route of Magick and Mysticism” (Grade I, Route A)
–“The Route of Druidism and the Dragon Legacy” (Grade I, Route D)
–“The Route of Mesopotamian Mystery Tradition” (Grade-II) and finally
–“The Route of Mardukite Systemology” (Grade III).

In order to ensure proper duplication of understanding intended by this unification of work — and proper preparation for future higher “Wizard Grades” (IV, V, VI, VII) — Joshua Free candidly and concisely delivered an unrehearsed 48-lecture series live and in person at Borsippa HQ to solidly establish the core of the Mardukite Academy. This series of now legendary lectures, along with all of its supportive materials, is officially known and distributed now as The Complete Mardukite Master Course, available in its entirety for the first time today — in recognition of Beltane 2021 — in both AUDIO and TRANSCRIPT format.

True Meaning of Christmas | Winter Solstice : Boughs of Holly & Mistletoe

10603560_10152320001423494_5362926915952471477_nb

CHRISTMAS is a contemporary Christian observance of the birthday of Jesus Christ, for whom the religion is named. It is modeled after the much older pagan celebration of Yule or the Winter Solstice. In the 4th Century, all official Christian Holy Days (holidays) were celebrated synchronously with the ancient wheel of the year. St. John the Baptist Day falls directly on the Summer
Solstice
. The “Feast of All Souls” replaced Samhain and the “Feast of the Assumption” is observed on Lughnassadh…
—excerpted from ARCANUM by Joshua Free

Druidic traditions of the Winter Solstice surface to mind more quickly, since they are the most relatively recent customs and rites observed in the Western Europe and our known history, from which America is founded. Ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians also observed the astrophysical phenomenon of the solstice.

arcanum2012thumb Ancient “pagans,” understood the Winter Solstice as a turning point or renewal of the year. The strength of the Sun grows from this point, being the darkest day, until the Summer Solstice (the longest day). The Norse people were the ones to
call the festival “Yule,” meaning, “wheel,” which qualifies us to believe that they too
understood this symbolism.

rocks1230001k During the winter season, at a time when the wildlife is hibernating and quiet and the Green World of Nature appears to have recessed into a state of retirement, the evergreen trees stood out among other trees. They were revered for their ability to sustain the harsh season, observed to be better equipped to handle the pressure of wind-storms and the weight of snow. Their resilience and longevity was attributed to this very fact; they were able to “bend” gracefully to external influences, while still maintaining their own independence.


druidcomptinythumb YULE LOGS existed in pre-Christian Phrygia/Galatia (Turkey) and Mesopotamia all the way across Europe to the British Isles. It was kindled on the remains of the log saved from the prior year’s observation, after the ashes have been removed. The large log was fed into the hearth over a period of twelve nights (until Twelfth Night).

Meanwhile, the ashes from the previous year are ritually cast about the field to ensure fertility for the coming year. A part of the Yule Log is always kept to use in kindling the next year’s fire. This is retained for use as a sacred amulet of protection for the household all year long, often kept near the hearth to ward away lightning.

"INVADER ZIM"

“INVADER ZIM”

As much as the Christmas tree has essentially nothing to with the religious event of Jesus’ birth, the Elven-Norse symbolism of the “Holly King” or “Santa Claus” has even less.

Today, a mythos of Santa Claus is recognized that is far removed from its original form. The Yuletide colors have always been red and green and occasionally white, gold and silver. These are the earth tones that Santa originally wore. In the early 1900s, the Coca-Cola Bottling Company used their own color scheme to harmonize their product with Santa and the holidays. The motif stuck. They were successful in directing a cultural shift in accepting this now famous red and white suited archetype.
