The Golden Lady Priestess Queen Lineage in Herstory
- Nikoletta Pozsgai
From the era of the Ordos Empire to the Saka-Sarmatian-Scythian-Hun tribes a plethora of Asian and Eastern European artefact has been researched and in the talk a collection of which will be presented to follow up the Golden Lady Priestess Queen lineage. The queen and leader of the tribe, The Golden Lady, was the wisest, the most able and gifted from the so-called Blessed Women (Rima). All the blessed women got their training in priestessing, healing, were shamankas and were all warriors – in the skies and in the physical when that was needed. Later on the Patriarchal Greek called them ruthless warriors, the Amazons. How much more they were than that. The unearthed Golden Treasures of the Carpathian Basin, Sub Ural and further Asian regions will speak up for the tribal queens in our herstory who apart from being skillful warrioresses were priestesses and wise leaders of their tribes. Let them tell their stories of the real strengths, skills, life-centered wisdom of the feminine through changing times. Let them tell their message of feminine leadership: we are their daughters who are to step into our very own powers, awaken our priestess, warrior and queen archetypes to protect the flame of life and create our path to a MotherWorld based new Golden Age. A legacy. Our legacy to take over.
A Journey that reaches from the Weaver Goddesses myths to the motives woven on to the Anatolian Kilims
- Gülçin Önel (Mavi’nin Sesi)
If we will be talking about a Star Queen, for me that would be the Weaving Goddess spinning her spindle in her place above the stars. The threads that are tied to one another, foreseeing where the threat that will be knotted in the next step and within the bigger picture; all of these processes tells us the story of why weaving has been attributed to the feminine energy all this time. The process which begins with a knot, a thread takes use from mother and baby to weaving the knots that are established in a relationship. From a cultural and mythological perspective, we see that Weaving always happens in the hands of a woman. The webs woven are many and their material equivalents are rugs, carpets, knits, knots, lace and much more. That is why first and foremost I will go into the roots of the Weaver Archetype, talking about its mythological counterparts mentioning the Weaving Goddess of the Sumerian Cult, Utta in Anatolia. I will explain how the symbols carried on from the Weaving Goddesses to our day were woven on rugs(kilims) and the fact that rugs(kilims) actually tell us a story of many facets I will explain over the Goddess Symbols on rugs(kilims) from Anatolia. Remembering the Weaver inside us will remind us that we are the ones weaving the fabric of life each day with what we have in hand.

Venus - Bright Queen of Heaven
- Annabel Du Boulay
Named ‘Bright Queen of Heaven’ by the Babylonians in 1600BC, the planet Venus, the third brightest object in the sky at maximum elongation after the Sun and Moon, is also known as the Morning and Evening Star. The 8 Year Cycle of Venus inspired not only the Rose Lineage mythos as far back as Ancient Mesopotamia in 3500BC, with the Myth of the Descent of Inanna and her rebirth as Queen of Heaven being founded on its 19-month synodic period of 7 waning moon and 7 waxing moon conjunctions, but archaeological evidence also reveals that the Cycle of Venus was followed by the Neolithic and Celtic tribes of Britain and Ireland. In this presentation, I’ll be exploring the influence of Venus on the ancient tribes of the Rose and Celtic Lineages, and her archetypal embodiment as ‘Bright Queen of Heaven’.
