HP Mageson666 Gets Suckered Again.

HungARYAN likes Jesus First instinct is always right

HungARYAN (Victoria Feher and/or Veronika Hompo, whichever you want to call her, real name, Veronika Hompo) stalking Donnie Danko aka Mageson666  on JOS for info and pics to then do curses to destroy him spiritually and in her mind, physically. Death is her most wanted desire since she left her Christian family.

HungARYAN (Victoria Feher and/or Veronika Hompo, whichever you want to call her, real name, Veronika Hompo) stalking Donnie Danko aka Mageson666 on JOS for info and pics to then do curses to destroy him spiritually and in her mind, physically. Death is her most wanted desire since she left her Christian family.

Some thoughts about Algol

Donnie Danko proves to the global community just how naive he is.
This “retard” as Veronika/Victoria/HungARYAN calls him has fallen for her ruse. His turn will come. When she turns on him publicly instead of just cowardly doing it within her own secret hidden blathering area of the internet, HP Mageson666 Donnieboy Danko will do as she has and is doing to others. VovnPrgel do not think you are safe from her wrath either, kid, she mentioned you too. All the evidence you could ever want is at your fingertips, suckers.

HPS Maxine informed me on this thread her statement was thus:

“ALGOL IS ROTTEN! And YES, people who invoke this energy can and do go insane.”

As if she isn’t already insane. This sum-human freakshow has been playing all sides since she got access to the internet. Proof is readily available of instability and consistent use of manipulation and trickery to gain people’s trust. It’s who she is. A fraud; a master sociopath, lying through her rotten teeth with a smile on her hideous face as she knows she is getting off on pulling the wool over your eyes. Your time is coming HP’s of JoS and clergy members. She will lose it and her aliases will post to back her up in her madness when she attacks. She’s been Christian, Pagan, many religions an admitted lonely outcasted lower class in her country, diagnosed as a dangerous person due to mental defect. Refused treatment, she seeks out scenarios she can play a role in for months to years until she is comfortable enough to launch her attack to those unsuspecting, trusting people she has pre-chosen to stalk and harass relentlessly. Enjoy the ride, HP Mageson. You’ve been played.

Now your fine…..Why is that.
Why is that? You only see what you want to see. She is not fine. She is a sociopath.
HP Mageson666 you went with your first instincts about this HungARYAN in HungARYAN GONE CRAZY. You knew then she had untreated mental illness. To deny it now due to fearing who the facts come from is to deny your own gut instinct from the very start. Nothing has changed at all except that those she cursed and looked secretly to find personal information on have now fell for her pathological game and taken her as a friend. She has asked many for photographs of you to use in rituals. Denial is weakness.

I don’t know if someone ever mentioned it or talked about it…
I have always been strongly connected to Algol as my Sun exactly conjuncts with Algol in Taurus. I just read some very interesting things about this topic and I had a little “discovery” which I would like to share. And I also would like to put an end to some irrational fears.Everyone knows this fixed star, Algol, the “Head of Medusa”.
Maybe many of you have also conjunctions or other aspects to this star.
Usually people fear Algol and are worried about it. We know Algol is being portrayed as the most destructive and dangerous star. It is of the nature of Saturn and Jupiter. Astrologers say it causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution, extreme sickness, mob violence, murder, terror, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or othersetc. The list of the negative and horrific things is endless.
BUTis it really true or is it true in everycases?See the mythology first.
Algol represents the head of the Gorgon Medusa who was slain by Perseus. Medusa, who was the only mortal one of the three Gorgon sisters, was originally a beautiful temple virgin but her hair was changed into hissing serpents by Pallas Athene because of in consequence of her having become by Neptune the mother of Chrysaor and Pegasus in one of Pallas Athene’s temples.Perseus was the son of Zeus.
According to the myth Zeus visited Danae in the form of a shower of gold and got her pregnant with Perseus.
As a youngman Perseus undertook a mission to kill the Medusa. He was furnished with the sword, cap and wings of Mercury and the shield of Pallas Athene. He killed the Medusa by cutting off her head and afterwards killed the sea monster Cetus and then rescued and married AndromedaBut Perseus could have died in his quest to kill the “evil”Medusa but with divine help he triumphed and cut Medusa’s head off and recruited new helpers and later on with the help of Medusa’s head, he was victorious over his other enemies. One look into Medusa’s eyes would turn anyone into stone and there were snakes on her head instead of hair – Perseus taking advantage of these powers held Medusa’s head in his hand and defeated his enemies.As we know most of these myths are spiritual allegories.
And here comes the point: What does Algol represent in fact?Algol is also called the “Evil Star”. The Arabians called it Ra’s al Ghul.The jews called Algol as Rosh ha Satan, Satan’s head! And Algol was also called Lilith.
Why did they call it “Satan’s head”?Medusa is in fact, the most powerful helping weapon if we hold this energy in our hands, and is present in Algol.
According to the primordial traditions the power of Algol is Mother Nature, the Kundalini energy!
If we look at Medusa’s picture, we can see that her head is surrounded by snakes.ImageImageThe snake represents Kundalini and also it is an ancient symbol of healing, initiation and rebirth.
Such as the Ophiuchus, the “serpent-bearer”, constellation which is in connection with the Milky Way.
The serpents in Medusa’s hair connect her to the Ophiuchus constellation also known as the “medicine man”.
The word “medicine” comes from the same root as Medusa, the name of the sorceress Medea also comes from this root.
The “blood” from Medusa’s left side was poisonous and the right side was used to heal.The other name of Algol is “Demon Star”. The Arab word for alcohol means “the Demon”. Alcohol comes from the word Algol.
The other word for alcohol is spirit. Another term for alcohol is Latin “aqua vitae” meaning “water life”…
We already know what these words mean and made the connections.We also shouldn’t forget the fact that Algol is the second brightest star (Beta star) of the Perseus Constellation.
Algol is a star which gives out light. Some astrologers say that every celestial sign which gives out light or in other words transmits light helps us.
“It is time to redefine those light giving starts which are labelled as bad and evil just like Algol which manifests the basic natural feminine energies. The negative labelling of Algol suppresses energies and desires only to create and magnify fear.”Murder is a common concept associated with Algol.
In a spiritual sense murder means the transformation of the inner energies and their elevation to a higher level (as death is not the end, only taking off the body-clothes when the soul enters a higher dimension).
Algol is in opposition with Scorpion which also represents passing away, transformation…

Algol is the face of the feminine most feared for her raw passion and power.
“She is the kundalini energy… the power of the feminine or the potential power of Mother Nature, not to be called evil for being strong.” Algol carries the collective rage for the suppression and repression of this power.

The jews FEAR the female energy. That’s why they also smeared Algol. You can see many of the astrologers – most of them
are jews – even connect the effects of Algol to the holohoax and tries to emphasize their lie.
Many jewish astrologer and other idiot chrisitans depict the Algol as the star of mass murderes and serial killers and they love bringing the nazis as examples.

Yes, many of the nazis had conjunctions, oppositions, trigons to Algol.
For example, Mars was in conjunction to Algol in Borman’s chart.
Saddam had his Mercury conjuncted to Algol.
General George Patton’s Neptune conjuncted to Algol.
And if everything is true Hitler has his Vertex point on Algol!

The jews also corrupted and perverted the meaning of the Black Moon point, today it’s commonly known as “Lilith” in the chart. And they did the almost same with the meaning of Aldebaran too.

In the ancient vedic astrology Algol and Aldebaran (and also Rigel and Antares) are the most powerful stars. If someone has the Sun, Moon or Asc in conjunction with these stars it can mean great wealth, power, leadership and other benefical things.
Besides my Sun-Algol conjunction I also feel strong relation to Rohini (Aldebaran and their neighboor stars) which is my Nakshatra according to my vedic chart. My Gemini Moon conjuncts with Aldebaran. And I also have my Part of
Fortune on the Rigel.

On the negative influences of Algol…
Algol is double star. And it’s true that Algol is related to the pain too. The medical term “Algology” means the study of pain. If it’s badly aspected and is in 8th house for example then it can cause dangerous situations, accidents, troubles, difficultiesSome astrologer thinks Algol can bring the ability to rise above all the terror.
The ability to handle anything. This star puts itself in these situations, whether it’s purposefully or subconsciously attracting the situations to them. Those with strong Algol influences in their natal chart are usually well suited to handle these difficulties.

Algol people can be great warriors and leaders. Who do not fear death, pain, rejection, and are willing to go through torture, to reach a specified goal.
I’m sure many of you, sisters and brothers here have Algol in their chatrs someway. If you have, don’t be afraid of it,
even if it’s in your 8th house. But always check the actual transits to Algol too.

Caput algol is one of the most negative and destructive stars in the sky, it should never be invoked.

http://www.angelfire.com/empire/serpent agick.html

“It is very important to know the nature of the star/s you intend to invoke energy from, as some stars such as Polaris and Caput Algol are extremely destructive and people who have invoked these energies have gone insane.” high priestess Maxine Dietrich.

If you research more you can see the jews always smear Algol claiming it is the star of the mass murderers and they connenct it to the nazis in the negative way.

HP Maxine did it well to share those informations about Algol then. But it was years ago.
I also beleived that Algol is negative and destructive then as many people believed it.

What I proved in my post you can also check it yourself.

If you read my post you can see I also said that the influences of Algol can be negative if it is badly aspected.

Hitler, Borman, our General Patton, Saddam and other great leaders and important people had Algol conjunctions or other aspects to Algol.

And if you do some deeper research you will see why did the primordial tradition connect Algol to the kundalini.

Although the jews also called Algol The Head of Satan but they represented it in a negative way.
Thats why they hate Algol and even claimed that the phony holocost also happened because of Algol.

Yoy doesn’t speak hungarian and paleohungarian (sumerian). So you don’t know that the word Algol really means demon as in other languages. Anyone can realize the Algol-Alcohol-Spirit-Demon words’ connections…
Gol comes from gul, gul or gyul means somthing which gives light.
So Algol was considered positive in the hunscythian traditions too.

Seems you also didn’t read or don’t understand the mythology of Algol. The spiritual allegory behind it.

By the way it doesn’t matter if we did not know something well or didn’t know about a fact if we realize the truth later.

I have well aspected connection to Algol and I feel its power from birth. When I reached that level to be able to invoke the energy of stars I started to invoke the energy of Algol and especially from that moment I have very good experiences and feel myself so powerful.

Do you remember when we believed that Venus belongs to the heart chakra? Or when we thought the solar chakra is also pointed up?
After Maxine realized the truth about it she corrected it.
It is good and I am so thankful too her and her hard work.

As Father Satan says too we always need to learn and get more knowledge and review our present knowledge too.

Yes, I also said it can have a destructive side too as it is a binary star.
I also found older writings which claims horrible things about Algol.
But many things were corrupted in the old traditions in the past by the jews as we know it…
The mythology of Algol has been misrepresented for long time as other allegories.
There are still some Vedic astrologers too who also says Algol can be benefical and brings power, wealth, moneyThe connection between Algol and kundalini is blatant I think.
The spiritual alegory behind the story, the star’s names…
And it is also true that the kike astrologersconnenct it to theholocost and the WW II. An astrologer even called it the star of nazis – in a negative sense.I don’t say that everyone needs to start invoke the energy of Algol. Of course one shouldnt do it if Algol is in his 8th house and badly aspected.
I just experienced the positive influences of it.
And it may sounds weird but I didn’t invoke energy of other stars directly before.
Of course it is my experienceand experiment too. :)I try to find more proofs about it. My post partly based on a hungarian astrologer’s thoughts.
Now I am searching an old books written by Lajos Barta too.
And I also will observe other charts of leaders, important peopleThanks for approving my posts.

One of the jews who drove me insane while I was on drugs, an infiltraitor, someone who helped with it, was a compulsive liar and gave me direction to,” invoke the energy of caput algol mixed with the sun,” I see this as none other than an intent to get me to destroy myself, and in this case I prefer to defer to HPS Maxine’s judgment.

“ALGOL IS ROTTEN! And YES, people who invoke this energy can and do go insane.”

I am trained to look for mental illness in people as part of the career I was trained in. Please consider this seriously Hungaryan, I mean no disrespect as you are a member in high standing. But there was a time when I seriously believed you where mentality ill. Now your fine…..Why is that. Well your telling me your invoking this Algol energy which makes people become mentally unstable if not outright insane. So you should consider not messing with its energy anymore its unwholesome in its effects.

I am telling you this because I care about you and everyone else’s well being here. Stay away from messing with this Agol.

I tried few times to invoke it and I felt it powerful.
But if you are really sure then I will stop it then. Thanks.You believed I have such problems? lol The same here.
Just kidding.If someone has a bad temper it doesn’t mean she is mentally ill. And also if someone has a rude attitude he is not mentally illBut I have to say something. What you wrote about it here is a bit harmful to me now. Because of a jewish stalker who abuses me and other satanists. She IS really mentally ill and a psychopath as her own sister also confirmed it to me few days ago. But anyone can see it.
WhateverWhat was weird to me is that why the jews hate Algol so much…
And it is really true that those people had Algol conjuncts in their charts…
The mythology is intersting and the names of the star. Head of the Devil…
Then what does the story mean in fact behind the Algol?
And what does the names of Algol mean?I will continue to reasearch about it but then I will stop the invoking then.
Thanks if you were worried about me. :)

I sincerely doubt this jew is mentally ill, rather, that she is simply a highly intelligent and calculating, an enemy magician. I did not recognize the jews around me for what they were for years. and when the time came, I finally saw, however hard it was to accept at first, that every single person with a crooked nose , was psychic, was a kike magician. Their numbers are much more than you might think. why don’t you put some of algol’s energy into her sixth chakra? or at least cut her, and her kike sister out of your life completely, as with all jews. treat jews like unwanted spirits, greys, enemy attacks, etc– tune the out of your life like they don’t even exist.

Maybe jews hate Agol because it fucks them over.

Your not mentally ill don’t worry about it. Your also a member in high standing and good worker for the cause. Which is why the kikes are trying to harass you. But don’t tie into Agol anymore it makes people go off the deep end.

“HP Maxine did it well to share those informations about Algol then. But it was years ago.”

 

Missed the jab at Maxine, did you all?

See it? First sentence ends with THEN. Second sentence says it’s old news, out of date, Maxine is old and HungARYAN has given all of you the real ‘informations’, if you look closely, she is very busy attacking Satanists who are in higher positions than her around the globe, who’ve been Satanists for many years longer.

She pulled the wool over tight with JoS and she knows it. She didn’t with other Satanists. She was outed within weeks.The Hungarian with insane temper tantrums and no respect for others.

THE DEVIL IS GOD LED ZEPPELIN KNOWS – by HP Mageson666 aka High Priest Don Danko

A year ago, the following was written by Greg Olear on THE WEEKLINGS.

SO sorry, not posting HP Mageson’s retarded blathering. 😛

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ais53rladFU

SONG BENEATH THE SONG: LED ZEPPELIN’S “STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” AS TAROT CARD READING

i.

PLENTY OF PEOPLE, and most music critics, regard “Stairway to Heaven” as a childish indiscretion, a song we enjoyed in our shameful adolescence because we didn’t yet know how to change the road we were on. Lester Bangs is one of those people. Erik Davis, who wrote the (superb) 33 1/3 book on Led Zeppelin’s untitled fourth album1, is one of those people. Heck, Robert Plant is one of those people. In interviews with him on the subject, he comes off a bit like William Shatner in that great SNL sketch where he addresses the gathering of Vulcan-eared Trekkies: “You turned an enjoyable job I did as a lark for a few years into a colossal waste of time!”

I do not hold with the haters. I think “Stairway to Heaven” is an unequivocal masterpiece, and I love it without irony or qualification. I love the hauntingly beautiful opening guitar part; that it was supposedly lifted from Spirit’s “Taurus” doesn’t bother me any more than the plot of Romeo and Juliet being appropriated from a cheesy Arthur Brooke play.2 I love the way the song builds and doesn’t hew to the usual verse-chorus-verse-chorus formula. I love the way Bonzo’s drums come in when they do. I love the bustle in the hedgerow. And I love that it conjures up memories of high school dances and Battles of the Bands and adolescent wanting and the glory of teenage night.

The song, and Led Zeppelin in general, represents, along with Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jordan, Breaking Bad, and beignets from Café du Monde, one of those rare instances where larger-than-life hype is completely and totally deserved. Like the beignets, “Stairway” is a guilty, decadent pleasure. Like Chaplin, it’s universally popular—but more so in America than in Britain, where it was born. Like Jordan, it never loses. Whenever classic rock stations trot out their “Most Requested Songs” gimmick, “Stairway” is always, always, always number one. The only suspense, once the top five is breached, is whether the second track will be “Satisfaction” or “Hey Jude.” As Davis argues in his book:

“Stairway to Heaven” isn’t the greatest rock song of the 1970s; it is the greatest spell of the 1970s. Think about it: we are all sick of the thing, but in some primordial way it is still number one. Everyone knows it… Even our dislike and mockery is ritualistic. The dumb parodies; the Wayne’s World-inspired folklore about guitar shops demanding customers not play it; even Robert Plant’s public disavowal of the song—all of these just prove the rule. “Stairway to Heaven” is not just number one. It is the One, the quintessence, the closest [album-oriented rock] will ever get you to the absolute.

And like Breaking Bad, it presents both the very best and the very worst of the human condition. If there is light in “Stairway,” there is also darkness. Specifically, the Prince of Darkness, my sweet Satan. For we cannot write about “Stairway to Heaven” without discussing its alleged diabolical undertones. While the Devil rumors are silly, they are also sticky, so we may as well address them up front.

Ozzy Osbourne played in Black Sabbath, a band named for the Satanic mass. He allegedly bit the head off a live bat, and otherwise behaved as though he was in fact possessed by daemons. As a solo artist, he wrote a song called “Mr. Crowley,” as in Aleister Crowley, the notorious occultist and black magician. Later, he starred in a reality show with his family, elevating his talentless daughter Kelly to the status of C-list celebrity—which could only have happened in some sort of soul swap with Our Dark Lord. The dude’s basically spent the last 40 years jumping up and down shouting, “Hey, guys! I worship Lucifer! Look! See how I’m making devil horns with my hands?!” And yet no one seems to object, probably because Ozzy is not, and should not be, taken seriously. Jimmy Page, meanwhile, evinces a scholarly interest in the occult, buys Crowley’s lakeside estate, maybe sneaks in some vague Satanic messages on an album, but otherwise keeps whatever sinister religious beliefs he may have to himself…and he’s somehow the antichrist. How does that compute?

Certainly Page cultivated an air of mystery, which his alleged devil worship served to enhance, but his allegiance to Lucifer is overblown. That’s not just my opinion. Pamela des Barres, his companion around the time the fourth album came out, had this to say about the Zeppelin-as-Satanists rumor: “Absolutely not true. The only band member into anything occult was Jimmy, and he was intrigued with Aleister Crowley and his ‘do what thou wilt’ message….Jimmy definitely tiptoed along the edge of darkness and danger, but never once did I hear any mention of Satan!” If Page was into the devil, he certainly wasn’t proselytizing.

But then, it may be that the sneaky way in which Zep’s Satanism (supposedly) reveals itself is what gives the rumors legs. Unlike Sabbath, whose very name announces its daemonic affiliations, Led Zeppelin’s alleged allegiance to the Devil is backmasked on “Stairway to Heaven”—a song that insists that “words have two meanings” but that “if you listen very hard, the tune will come to you at last.” For confirmation, we must play the record backwards, in just the right spot, and all is revealed. Sort of.

What’s interesting about this, to me, is not that backmasked appeals to “my sweet Satan” can be heard—they can—but that this was discovered in the first place. Who the hell was the originator of this allegation, the prime mover who presumably sat around playing rock records backwards, seeking out Satan in his humming head? In 2014, this sort of thing would be tracked back to some blog post on some obscure website, or perhaps a stray tweet, written perhaps by this guy. Before social media, news traveled more slowly—it, ahem, winded on down the road. Like occult secrets, it was distributed solely by word of mouth. Davis traces the backmasking rumors as far back as 1981, to a Michigan minister, Michael Mills, who announced the findings on Christian radio, ten full years after the album’s release. While Mills was certainly the one who brought the infernal brouhaha into the mainstream, I have difficulty believing that he stumbled upon this himself. I asked des Barres about it3, and she confirmed my suspicions. “The rumors started way before ’81,” she said, “when Robert’s son died unexpectedly and Robert was involved in a terrible car accident,” in 1977 and 1975, respectively. This bit of arcanum was known to Zep cognoscenti for years, then, perhaps leaked to a select few by the band’s mad genius manager, Peter Grant, a big believer in Word of Mouth. What better way to compel thousands of people to buy a ten-year-old record than a hidden endorsement from Satan Himself? How many copies did Mills personally buy, only to destroy them by playing them backwards? Did this idea originate with Page? Grant? Producer Andy Johns? Was it a complete coincidence? We’ll never know, and in the end, it doesn’t matter.

“The fact is that, within two minutes of singing, ‘Stairway to Heaven’ contains at least seven reversed phrases of a suggestively devilish nature,” Davis writes, “…buried in a tune about pipers and whispers and listening really hard, a tune that, for a spell, ruled the world. I’m not saying supernatural forces are afoot. I’m just saying it makes you wonder.”

All of which would be more relevant to the task at hand—deciphering the meaning of the song—if the lyrics were written by the guy des Barres says was the only member of the band into the occult.

But Jimmy Page didn’t write the words to “Stairway to Heaven.” Robert Plant did.

ii.

Plant was born in August of 1948 in the Black Country of the West Midlands. His father was a civil engineer. His mother was of Romany descent—the people known popularly as gypsies. He left home at 16, immersed himself in the blues, and four years later had hooked up with Jimmy Page to form Led Zeppelin. He was twenty; Page was almost five full years older—an important fact to remember, when considering the dynamic between the guitarist and the front man.

As a teenager, Plant studied stamp collecting and the history of Roman Britain. His well-documented immersion into the blues meant that he hung around with a lot of guys like Steve Buschemi’s character in Ghost World. He read poetry and mythology and Tolkien. If Dungeons & Dragons had existed, he would have played it obsessively. Simply put, the guy was a nerd, albeit one packaged in the body of a self-styled “golden god.” Just as he wore low-rise jeans 30 years before they became popular, he was the prototype of the cool geek.

The lyrics for “Stairway” were written at an old stone castle called Headley Grange, Davis reports, a dismal place that Plant did not like but Page thought was boss, late in the year 1970. The two of them were sitting by the fire one night, perhaps high on something perhaps not, and Plant scribbled down the first words to the song. He would later report that they came to him as if written automatically.

So: “Stairway” was composed by a 22-year-old closet geek, a Lord of the Rings fanboy who knew all about Vespasian’s run as governor of Britannia, while his de facto older brother, who may or may not have worshiped the devil but certainly liked to dabble in the occult, was beside him, in a 200-year-old stone building that was once a poorhouse, in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night. This sort of information is relevant to our reading of the lyrics.

Few songs have offered such a wide range of interpretations as “Stairway to Heaven.” The comment board at Songfacts contains any number of them, many interesting, many insane. Some find Satanic messages lurking; others read it as a Christian parable. RapGenius is all over the Biblical allusions. Plant himself remarked that his own interpretation changes all the time, and he wrote the freaking thing. As Davis describes the lyrics: “It’s a zoo in there.”

But go back to the fireside, where Plant sat with his pen and paper, Page hovering demonically nearby. Is it possible that there was a deck of Tarot cards on that table? If Page owned rare Crowley manuscripts and first editions, he was certainly familiar with the Oswald Wirth book on Tarot. It’s inconceivable that he did not own a Rider-Waite deck, given that everything about the design of the fourth LP derives from the Tarot.

The cover of the album is a stylized version of the ninth major arcana card, The Hermit, while the inside cover—that is, the poster that your roommate had on your wall freshman year in college—is almost identical to the Rider Deck image:

RWS_Tarot_09_Hermit

Also, the four “runes” that comprise the album’s title represent the four tarot suits…

Led_Zeppelin_-_Definitive_Collection_Mini_LP_Replica_CD_Boxset

…Swords, Cups, Pentacles, and Wands/Staves, respectively.

Here’s Davis on the runes:

The first thing that must be said is that there are four of them, and that they appear on the fourth record released by a quartet, a record that features four songs on each side…all these fours suggest the most fundamental of occult quaternities: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, the four elements once believed to make up the whole of material reality…decisively linked to the four suits of the Tarot deck by the French magus Eliphas Levi….Levi expanded magic’s network of correspondences by correlating Earth, Air, Fire, and Water to, respectively, [Pentacles], Swords, Wands, and Cups.

The band famously insisted that there be no writing on the cover at all, no band name or album title. This invites us to read the lyrics as symbols, or rather as interpretations of various symbols. My theory is that “Stairway to Heaven” is a Tarot reading, a draw of the 13 cards that comprise one version of the Celtic Cross. Plant and Page may have laid the cards on the table as they were working out the words…who knows? As in actual Tarot readings, the story of the cards doesn’t cohere exactly, and lends itself to multiple interpretations.

“Stairway” as Tarot card reading would go like this:

1. The Empress

RWS_Tarot_03_Empress

The Empress rules the empire, holds sceptered sway over all material things. Note the golden orb on her staff. The stars on her tiara suggest an otherwordly quest.

2. Five of Pentacles

Pents05

This card is about lack, about not having. Here, beggars brave the elements outside a warm church, unable to go inside and enjoy the bounty.

In Tarot readings, the first two cards drawn form the querent’s central conflict: in this case, that of having great riches, and having nothing. The reading, and the song, is about resolving the conflict between material and spiritual gain.

3. Nine of Swords

Swords09

The card of despair. The “sign on the wall” are those swords, more swords than anyone could use, nine swords of Damocles ready to fall and cause injury.The third card in the sequence is the root cause of the problems. In this case, a feeling of dread that likely has deeper meaning than a lack of material resources. All the glittering gold in heaven’s vault cannot buy the cure for the querent’s ailment.

4. Nine of Pentacles

Pents09

Pentacles are about material things, generally, and this card is one of mastery. The falconer controls the falcon. This is someone at the height of his powers. But the fourth position is the past, an influence that is receding. This loss of control, too, plagues the querent. The falcon cannot hear the falconer; things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.

 5. Three of Wands

Wands03

This card is pretty much about the spirit crying for leaving. Which happens to be the attitude told by the card in the fifth position. The querent is ready to move on.

6. Five of Swords

Swords05

The scene on this gloomy card appears to be the aftermath of a battle (“the pain of war cannot exceed / the woe of aftermath”). It indicates hope and learning from negative experiences.

The sixth position indicates the future, the coming influence. So, to recap, the mastery of the past has been lost, the present is all gloom, but the future suggests hope.

 7. Judgement [sic]

RWS_Tarot_20_Judgement

By making the correct choices—and “Stairway” is all about choices—we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven. By stairway, perhaps.

The seventh position concerns self-reflection—how the querent sees herself. Here, she seeks salvation, and hopes, but is not sure, that she is worthy.

8. Ten of Cups

Cups10

The best card in the deck, perhaps, the Ten of Cups is the wish fulfillment card. All is right with the world. Peace and prosperity are here!

Unfortunately for the querent, this is illusory. The eighth card indicates how others view her, not as she views herself. She does not really have it all, even if she seems to. All that glitters is not gold!

9. Queen of Wands

Wands13

Wands/staves/rods correlate to the earth, to the vernal renewal process. The Queen of Wands rules the spring, which makes her, yes, the May Queen. Her cheerfulness permeates everything. (“Bustle in the hedgerow,” incidentally, means literally that a piece of a Victorian woman’s dress has been discarded in the garden—the remains of last night’s orgy).

The ninth card indicates a factor that the querent has overlooked. In this case, her buoyancy of spirit.

 10. The High Priestess

345px-RWS_Tarot_02_High_Priestess

The High Priestess stands for mystery, the occult, hidden knowledge—all the stuff Jimmy Page is into. The “B” and “J” on the pillars behind her stand for Beelzebub and Jehovah—Satan or God, the binary choice.

The card in the tenth position indicates the outcome of the conflict, in this case the clash between material wealth and spiritual lack. But the High Priestess is fuzzy. There is no clear outcome. All is vague. Like the song.

 11. The Fool

343px-RWS_Tarot_00_Fool

The Fool is not one in the modern sense of the word, but is more of an innocent, a naïf. He goes where his impulses take him, without a thought to the consequences, or to the dangers.

12. The Moon

RWS_Tarot_18_Moon

The Moon symbolizes things that go bump in the night: our deepest fears, terrifying illusions that turn out, in the light of day, to be nothing but shadows.

13. The Hanged Man

RWS_Tarot_12_Hanged_Man

The Hanged Man is still. He surrenders to his fate, and in his surrender, finds enlightenment.

Cards 11-13 comprise a summary of the reading. Here: the Fool is ready for his journey, encounters his deepest fears which give him pause, and winds up hanging from the tree of knowledge.

The final movement of “Stairway” achieves the same purpose, summarizing the querent’s conflict. The Fool winds on down the road, the “shadows taller than our souls” the fears that paralyze him. But he finds enlightenment. The key phrase is: “the tune will come to you at last.” This is a passive outcome. The querent does not come to the “tune,” but the other way around. Enlightenment is only achieved by stillness, quiet contemplation, and surrendering to the nature of things—”to be a rock and not to roll.”

The reading determines that the solution to the conflict between material abundance and spiritual salvation is the yogic pose of stillness. Or something like that. Like all Tarot readings, the lyrics only cohere to a certain point. Which is, ultimately, what Plant was going for with the words: that they have two (at least) meanings.

  1. Technically, the title of the album is the four glyphs, which means the title of his book is the four glyphs as well, but italicized. We don’t have the budget for that, so I shall refer to it here as Led Zeppelin IV.
  2. Though it does give new meaning to “My Spirit is crying for leaving.”
