I’ve always been interested in the unknown. Things that are associated with the occult. Some people get freaked out when they hear the word occult. But occult knowledge is basically the knowledge of human consciousness and how it operates,and knowledge of natural law. As well as the unseen universal spiritual laws which govern the consequences of human behavior. And for the past fifteen years I’ve studied symbology,numerology and etymology. I’ve learned quite a bit from different authors,teachers and even Youtube channels. There are a lot of people from different walks of life that have helped me awaken my consciousness. Most notably I’ve learned from people like Dr Suzar,Bobby Hemmitt,Dr Phil Valentine,Brother Panic,KT the Arch Degree,Naazir Ra,Osei Kufour, Jay Dyer and Mark Passio. As well as YouTube channels by Bro Sanchez,Black Child,Nu Rebel Entertainment,Truthiracy3,RFG Chosen One,The Outer Dark,da13thsun and Lifting The Veil. Throughout our daily lives we are surrounded by symbolism. Many times we don’t even think about the symbols around us. Many of the symbols come from our African ancestors and how they saw the world around them. This can be found in Kemetic texts thousands of years ago. Long before any European influence. Many years later Europeans(Greeks,Romans) changed some of the symbols and names of the deities as well. All the images we see on television and films are full of symbols. I’ve always liked to know the origin of words and why we use certain words. In this series three-part series I wanted to cover some of them you use in your everyday lives. I wanted to start with money and the words associated with it.
Much of the symbols we see have to deal with nature and the solar system. While Europeans were concerned about philosophy our ancestors understood the ecosystem and structure of life. Our ancestors studied the sun,moon and stars and based the Zodiac sings on astrology. Since it has to do with nature,this is the reason that cash is green(nature).
Our ancestors believed that the Sun represented the male principle. And the Moon was the female principle. Which is why you have gold(Sun) coins and silver(Moon) coins. The Sun produces light(light) so is looked at as the father. The Moon is represented as a female and associated with the calm and nurturing darkness of night. Which is why night is called EVEning. As in Adam and Eve.
Juno Moneta is the mythical Roman Goddess is where the word “money” comes from. Juno is Janus which represents the two facing heads of time. Janus is how we get the month January. Even the word MONTH gets it’s name from the MOON. Think of it has the beginning of January(Winter solstice) and the ending in June(Summer solstice). It’s all about the balance of nature and the changing of seasons. This is the reason that scales are used for measuring money.
This comes from our ancient African(Kemetic) Goddess Maat.
Of course Europeans stole the idea and created their version the so-called Lady of Justice. I find it interesting that they have stole so much from other cultures yet still haven’t created a system of justice. Go figure!
It’s often said that money doesn’t grow on trees. But since money is made from trees it actually does. But you can’t grow a tree without water. Which is why money is always associated with water. We’ve all heard the term “cash flow” and “liquidation”. And water current as in “currency”. They say the Moon can alter a person’s mood. When strange things happen late at night some people say “it must be a full moon”. The Moon can give off a certain energy. Our ancestors believed it could effect the ocean and rivers. When water is flowing it’s controlled by the banks right? River banks? Which is why we use a banking system.
Many of you are probably familiar with the ancient African(Kemetic) deity Thoth or Djehuti.(above). In artwork he was usually pictured as a man with the head of an Ibis. He was looked at as the Kemetic God of knowledge,wisdom,meditation and reason. His wife was Maat. He is usually seen carrying a caduceus,as in the picture above.
The caduceus has two serpents crawling up the staff. The two serpents represent the duality of nature. The symbol is still used today my the medical industry.
Once again,thousands of years later when the Greeks came to Kemet they started changing the names of the deities. They came up with the Greek God Hermes. Hermes was known as the messenger for the Gods. And the conductor of the dead and protector merchants. When they speak about the history of medicine they always mention Hermes to represent for the Greco-Roman era. No mention of the African origin. No surprise there.
But the caduceus is also where you get the dollar sign ($). The dollar sign is nothing but a serpent crawling up a staff. the reason the serpent is used alot is because our ancestors believe they represented wisdom and enlightenment.
It all comes from the THRID EYE of enlightenment and the pineal gland.
The Kemetic deity Wadjet is also represents as a serpent. It’s all interconnected on so many levels. I could go even deeper but I think you get the idea. I just wanted to show you some of the symbolism associated with money.
