PSYCHO DONNIE RUNNING AMUCK (Veronika Hompo writes about HP Mageson666)

Seems Donnie cannot handle anymore being criticised. After he was mistreating satanists, abusing and insulting them he got angry on my opinion about him. Really funny.
Now it is totally obvious he hates the Hungarians as he proved it earlier when he disapproved my post about our situation in Hungary. In fact he did not allow me to tell the truth that there are only a few pure Hungarian live here, I mean who are not mixed and that approx half of the people here are jewish or part jewish, gypsy, half gypsy and other mixed genetic trash. By disapproving this he defended the jews actually.

Now he even dared to insult us Hungarians in a very derogatory manner, he said the JoS doesn’t need goofballs from Hungary’s toilet. Sounds like a racist scum, although he has to know that national socialism was not racist at all. He said he saw I referred on him as a jewI said he can be a jew and he need to check his family tree. But now I say he must be a jew or part jewwhenever the jews face the fact that the Hungarians are the most ancient tribe they start to see red. They also cannot bear any critics and always getting mad when they are being exposed. Donnie’s behaviour is the same.
Now he even used his position to ban me, which is totally unfair but it is also totally unnecessary because he cannot put me silence. I can make a new account if I want and my friends are there too.

By the way it is not in the forum rules that I cannot have my own opinions about the HPs or about anyone on my OWN blog. I made that blog post because of his unfair behaviour and rudeness. He made me suspicious of him. He insulted and attacked me first.
It’s also not in the rules that we have to love each other or only those ones can be satanist who admire the HPs.
I didn’t post my opinion and my experiences about him on the forum, I posted them here, on my OWN blog. And I have the right to think or say anything about anybody. Freedom of speech. Especially when I find someone very suspicious or I experience gross discriminations towards satanists.

AND MY EXPERIENCES WITH HIM, MY BLOG ENTRY ABOUT HIM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH JoS ! Because I agree fully with Maxine and agree fully with all the writings and sermons of the JoS websites. That’s why I’m sharing the truth and educating the people everywhere I go. I am also working hard for Satan and for our freedom. I’m constantly advancing and empowering myself spiritually and I’m constantly fighting against the jews by exposing them and by destroying them spiritually. These are my duties just like other Satanists’.
And just because he believes he is right in everything and just because he has a “tilte” he cannot discriminate neither me nor other satanists for no reason.

“It is (priesthood) not for personal ego gratification.” – Maxine said this in a thread in the yahoo e-group once.

It was really good if it would be true…
Because now it seems a despotic psychopath can do whatever he wants, if he dislikes someone or can’t accept someone’s different experiences then he starts to insult or even bans him/her.

Satan won’t tolerate this, he bets his life!

As for Yoora, she is not a sock puppet at all, you idiots. She is my friend and she just defended me. It’s totally normal. We all have names and faces and we are not hiding like some coward worm.

He also said that I’m a liar and my “libels” are extreme. Fucking not. The brutal mistreatments, the gross behaviour and helping the kikes are extreme!
I’m not lying at all, I have proofs on everything he did. As I said I screen shotted his every unfair comments and rude insults which he sent me via emails, too. And he needs to keep in his mind that I’m not only one, many satanist have the same opinion and have the same bad experiences with him and suffered from his discriminations and from his vile behaviour.

Myla, for youFirst, you have to learn that fucking English if you don’t want to put the JoS to shame. And you also need to learn to read and to understand what people are saying or writing. That’s why I suggested to you to read my blog post and my comments again.
You are so lame and miserablelook at yourself how pathetic you are! Everything you do is ass-licking and cock-sucking Donnie. You never have any good idea or interesting thoughts, you never make any sermon, you are just translating and you are doing it bad as some native Spanish speaker satanists noticed. It’s very likely that you have no spiritual advancement too, just like your master, Donnie has no. The only difference between you and him that he is smart in a level and he really collected many important infos but as I said it doesn’t really matter when he behaves like a kike and helping the kikes by mistreating and abusing true satanists.

When I first believed you discriminated me and my friend and I had some bad words toward you, if you remember. But I apologized honestly later and even wished good luck to your translations. You totally ignored it, it just shows again how pathetic you are. You really lack of self-confidence. In fact both of you are lacking of self-confidence that’s why you need constant praising, sycophancy and ass-licking from some obsequious satanists there.
Putting satanist to silence, removing their comments and banning them, preventing them to defend themselves against your attacks and falsehoods are the only things you are good at…
Truthfully these unscrupulous actions are nothing but testimonies to your weakness and cowardice.

Second. I’m not kike at all, you retarded dumb bitch – yes now you really deserve this name – and you have to know this well as you know my FB profile and saw my real name & my photos too.
Anyone can see that I’m not only not a jew but I’m pureblood aryan, I came from a pure hunscythian lineage. Even my surname is very old and aryan, the nazi Erich Hampe bears a variation of this surname too.
So you’d better to shut the fuck up and remain silent with yoursephardic-like “mediterranean” face in Brazil.

Other typical method of the jews, labelling pure aryans as jews immediately. As you did it with that poor girl Dajana, who made a little mistake. I only suppose when someone gives me to suppose that he can be a jew.

And you dared to say “this gotta stop”? lol  Donnie’s psycho amuck running needs to be stopped as soon as possible, like others said too.

By the way if you believe I’m alone with this opinion about you you’re wrong:

I bet you know what will happen to you both soon. And we are going to do it with permission.

As Adolf Hitler also said to tolerate injury from NO ONE! And NO ONE means NO ONE…

HAIL SATAN!

TRAITOR IN THE JOS?

It’s not really surprising that the jews are sending their best agents into the JoS clergy. This shows well that JoS is a threat to them and they want to do anything to stop the satanists.

Recently I was talking with other satanists who have the same bad experiences with a certain high priest like I have. This high priest is Don Danko aka Mageson who collected many good informations on the jews until now. But something is very fishy and weird around him. We noticed he is regularly disapproving many satanists’ posts on thejosministries forum. This happened to me too.

Once I wanted to share a bad experience of mine with a psychopathjewish woman who is after me but Mageson disapproved it and even called me names, I was totally taken aback. Later when I wanted to talk about our situation in Hungary and about the fact that more jews and gypsies are living here than Hungarians, he simply claimed it nonsense and told me I have no proof. My friend Scythian Warrior was also mistreated by him. Scythian wanted to share a very good video about the kurd yezidis, Mageson disapproved that too and claimed it contained some malign software which was not true at all. He even disapproved Scythian’s next post too which contained the JoS own writing about the yezidis. Many topics of mine were disapproved by him and labelled “off-topic” which is a bullshit, there were not off-topics.

He is very self-conceited, brazen, rude and really arrogant. He was even bashing me on a topic “White Man’s Bible” on josministries forum. And now he doesn’t want to accept my last post because it would be extremely embarrassing for him. He believes everyone arethe same, and he thinks a vegan diet can only harm. He failedveganism once and believes the vegan diet is sucks for everyone. It is not true. There are millions of people who are on good vegan diet and they are healthy. Veganism is working for someone, and it is also not working for others. Really, there many people who can’t bear the vegan diet and they will have health problems sooner or later. I can accept it and I can also accept that he is nonvegan. I also told him if I notice I have some problems then I will stop my vegan diet. I agreed with him in almost everything which he shared, for example that thevegansim is being pushed by the jews todaybut he ignored it, and just continued to attack me by his rude insults. It’s obvious he is not normal. So I just shared my own experiences and my own opinions. But as he is a psychopath he cannot handle that other people have different experiences than his so he was attacking me and starting to insult me brutally.

Many spiritual satanists are suffering from this fucking moron. Spiritual satanism is about freedom and these spiritual satanists can’t have own opinions because of Mageson’s psychopathic behaviour. He simply disapproves their posts or even bans them if he didn’t like them. He believes he knows everything in the world, yet he himself stated he has no medical profession or any profession at all. He is always attacking everyone who has a different experiences. And most of the time he is not right, he’s wrong and he bans people, fellowsatanists, for no reason.

He also believes he got the tilte high priest he can do everything. Well, FUCKING NO! Maxine herself said once that a high priest title MEANS NOTHING in fact. He has no spiritual power at all. He has no time to meditate or empower himself. What he is doing is moderating the comments and banning satanists 24/7. Of course he copy and paste very good infos from very good books too – yes, I respected him for sharing these important infos, but he vanished my respect with his disgusting attitude.

Now he even pushes a jewish agenda: he believes and spreads that the people of Faroes are Aryans! WHAT THE FUCK??? They are not aryansat all. Faroes started the pervert massacre of the sacred dolphins in the 1500’s, which was hundreds of years after the Viking age ended, so that is not a Viking tradition either. No one should believe the lie about the Vikings! Everyone who believes that disgusting bloodbath is a “pagan ritual” and “fishing” is a fucking moron. If someone even spreads this lie then he may a jew. Jews are always smearing the Aryanpeople that’s why they emphasize their lie about the Vikings too. Faroe people are hardly Aryans, they are INBRED MUTHERFUCKER RETARDS AND GENETIC TRASH. These fucks are not doing it because of their survival. They are admitting they have other things to eat. They eat fish and some vegetables. Killing and having bloodbath are not hunting or traditional ritual. A friend of mine has a good point when she said that these people on Faroes are mentally ill. They are growing up in the guts of dolphines and thinks it’s normal. They cannot have a healthy psyche.

This fucking Mageson spreads that Faroes people are normal and they have aryan origin which is a big fat lie. There’s a thread about it on the forum and he can’t accept those comments which saying different than his statements. What the fuck is this guy? He even sent me totherapist. WAIT! It’s so familiar! Oh I know itthe jews are always sending the gentiles to the psychiatry and suggesting therapy for them. Tipically jewish behaviour! Maybe he is a fucking jew. Or he is part jewishThat’s why he behaves so brutally. He should check his family tree ASAP. His behaviour is pretty the same and it doesn’tmatter he hates them, he still can have jewish DNA, his pervert and vile attitude prove this. Well, if Mageson is a jew or a jew-supporter traitor, he will be exposed soon as the jews are always being exposed sooner or later. I and some satanists decided to collect every unfairactions and outrageous mistreatments of him as proofs. We are going to contact Maxine and tell her everything. This needs to be stopped. It can’t happen in a satanic community.

I must note that we are hunscythians which means we have the utmost connection to Father Satan. Hun-Scythians (sumerians) were the first ancient tribe who are descended directly from Satan, all the other white tribes are descending from us. I know he hates this as he proved it many times even if he said once he is aware of the fact thatscythians are the sumerians

If he doesn’t stop himself his lard-ass will be kicked out of the forum soon. I told him he shouldn’t have fucked with satanists, he shouldn’t have attacked us. It was a huge mistake. And he will see the serious consequences soon. Because I RUTHLESSLY DESTROY EVERYONE who dares to attack me for no reason or dare to interfere me. This is me. A dedicated hardcore satanist who defends herself at any costs. Fromnow I won’t consider him as a satanist anymore. From now he is an enemy of me, an enemy of the satanists. And if it’s necessary I cannot help but I am going to eliminate him.

….

Now here she is again pretending she is another person, that’s because she has a mental disorder that makes her take on multiple personalities, and she does truly believe she is all these people when she puts on their persona, steps into their online shoes and starts typing. Here she was on her Scythian Warrior blog called “HUNGARIANS FOR SATAN”(hungaryansforsatan.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/someverybadexperienceinthejos) and she was again bashing Don Danko. She has made private derogatory comments about HP Mageson666  many a time, she will deny it, she’ll SCREAM IT IN CAPS but she cursed him and she did a ritual due to her hatred and belief that he is a Jew, she claims she put a death curse upon him and plans to kill him spiritually. She has since said she apologised and made nice-nice with him and with all theothers she attacked, but it’s all lies. She loathes High Priestess Myla Limlal666, she is jealous of Myla yet at the very same time she feels that Myla is “useless idiot to the JoS” and a “jew retarded moron ignorant!” She bashes Myla any chance she gets.  She did all the rituals to spiritually kill their souls and she made a private entry about it on her Facebook. On WordPress she is scythianwarriorViktoria Feherfeherviki86Anett Nadia KissAdél KassaiGábor Gábriel — on Joy of Satan Forums she is all of the Hungarians. She can give the names to the HP’s herself.

SOME VERY BAD EXPERIENCE IN THE JOS

I wouldn’t be surprised if the jews are sending their best agents into the JoS clergy. This shows well that JoS is a threat to them and they want to do anything to stop the satanists.

Unfortunately hisbehaviour was pretty the same and it doesn’t matter he hates them, he still can have jewish DNA, his pervert and vile attitude can refer to this. I don’t know exactly…

  1. Yes, he refused some of my posts too. I was surprised, especially when he disapproved that post which included their own writing about the yezidis. He has a really bad attitude and I have to agree that his rude behaviour needs to be stopped. Although I still believe or rather I hope strongly he is not traitor just simply an asshole, but a smart asshole. You know what I mean….

    Everyone has an attitude, there are people with short-temper and there are people who are sensitive a bitit’s ok, we are not the same. When someone is trolling or says something very dumb it’s ok to correct him/her but if someone simply has a different opinion about a theme it’s not okay to attack him/her especially when the person is a dedicated satanist.

    And as for this Faroe thing….he doesn’t know it well and he thinks that people are really pure Aryans which is not really true. 50 000 people live there for a long time and they must be inbreds in a level. It’s true. And it’s also true that they are not doing this massacre for survival, they can eat fish and other things as they said. They can live off fishing and turism. So this annual barbaric bloodbath is totally unnecessary.

    I also truly hope this problem will be solved soon and none of the satanists will suffer from him or will be mistreated by him. It seems he was working hard and I think we really need his writings, so all we need from him now that he changes his behaviour towards satanists and stop being so sarcastic. If he’s right and when it’s reasonable he can correct anyone but when he’s wrong or not sure in something he needs to be normal and writes normally without any insults….

    1. Yes, the problem is he believes he’s always right in everything. His obnoxious behaviour and his delusion of grandeur make him more unlikeable and antipathic. But the worst is these things can easily make people to believe something is really wrong with him. That’s why I said he made me suspicious of him…
      I still don’t know exactly what was his real intentionor is he really a traitor/jew or just simply a very gross person. I thought I need to try to invoke the element of akasha and try to focus on his spirit. It worked beforeBut I also should ask Satan about him. Maybe later.

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]

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

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.”
