Grimoire of Pirou
The reconstruction of the lost Grimoire of the Chateau Fort de Pirou
Good morning and bright blessings from the dawning of a new day! I am Hemera, daughter of Chronos. I have come with my sister Nyx to teach you to keep time in balance and harmony with the land, Sophia, and the Way of the Goddess.
Time is of your own making. It does not exist as everything in the great Goddesses dream is being dreamed at once, in the present. Time is constructed by you and is in your service.
All good things are birthed from the great void of emptiness and silence–the womb of the Goddess. Construct your calendar days in a manner that allows for the powerful do nothing times. Employ timekeeping practices that respect the ebb and flow of the seasons. If your time constructs are out of harmony with the present you can never reach the Enchanted Estate.
If you allow time to be your master and adhere too strictly to your calendar schedules, despite what is happening in nature and in the collective, heartache and suffering will follow. Declaring do nothing times when storms are brewing is wise and prudent, whether these storms be in the natural realm or in the realm of the collective intelligence. The workings of nature and the collective do not follow your calendars. They cannot be scheduled. Be mindful of the subtle and not so subtle signals from the magical hidden realms. Heed their warnings, retreat into the womb of the Goddess and you will be rewarded with a vivid and fruitful imagining that will manifest sweetness.
If you find yourself in a place of suffering that is too much to bear, I give you the promise of a new day. Retreat into the arms of my sister Nyx, let her darkness calm and comfort you. Wake rested to a warmer and brighter new day. Honor the Way of the Goddess as best you can despite your circumstances. Keep your eyes focused on me and each day will be a bit brighter and warmer than the last.
This present time is not easy. It takes great courage. Each time you feel the rays of the Lion King, remember I walk beside you, my heart is with you. Namaste’ precious ones. Take comfort and rise.
I have been a riddle through the ages. You know my sisters Urd and Skuld well. We are the guardians of the timeline. Urd’s past no matter how painful can always be used for growth–a tool to be treasured. Skuld’s future no matter how painful the present and past, can always be a beacon to summon courage-a lighted path to follow. Ah, but what of the present?
The present is scarcely understood in a world controlled by the geldrbaryn. They have employed very clever ways to coerce you into ignoring the present.
There is a reason that a gift is also referred to as a present. The present is the most precious of gifts in all the universe. When you ignore the present, you forfeit the present. The present is the gift of manifestation. the gift of being. Rob someone of the Goddess’ gift, by causing suffering to their present and you will seal your own fate.
When my light shines upon you, it is to remind you that you have a gift to give. A gift that will bring balance and joy to humanity’s present.

I have tried several different ways of calculating the star chart and have found that the time-based systems seem to work the best. In fact, the time-based systems have proven incredibly accurate and successful when used with Urania’s code. I currently calculate charts using the Tropical Zodiac and Placidus House system. And I find that it works for both hemispheres and the poles.
The star chart is meant to be a code–a precise, accurate, efficient form of communication. It is not meant to be some abstract ideology to be theorized through the ages. It is a message that is delivered in exactly the same way for everyone on the planet, regardless of their location.
As Patrick Watson puts it, “Earth’s northern hemisphere is generally the front seat of our voyage around the Milky Way”. Our solar system is moving at a northward motion through our galaxy. Therefore, using the vernal equinox in March as the starting point of the zodiac is logical.
This leads us to our next quandary. In calculating the star chart, everything boils down to time and place. We can always get accurate coordinates for place, but time is much trickier to pinpoint through the ages. During war times, the practice of timekeeping has historically been erratic and inconsistent with known standards. In cases where one geographic location was occupied by several different countries, and military forces, timekeeping delved into chaos. To correctly pinpoint the time of someone born in Vienna in September of 1945, one would need to know which version of time was recorded. Was it the U.S. version of time, the Russian version of time, the French version of time, or was it the British version of time. The British were practicing a peculiar version of daylight savings time throughout their empire during the war years, in order to help with rationing resources. To accurately cast the star chart requires that one knows the method of timekeeping in use at the time of birth and then converting that time to a Julian date that references the hour and minute.
Within this world and this timeline–this particular possibility within the field of all possibilities–the balance has been lost. Instead of basking in the glory of the bounty of the Divine union, humanity is using their Divinity to create suffering and chaos. It is an abomination. The Goddess weeps. The Force is fractured.
From the moment of birth, the people of this realm are actively entrained to disconnect from their original intention–the intention of expressing one very distinct, unique, and pure essence of the Divine union. To courageously and proudly shine the light of that essence, is one’s purpose and destiny. To disconnect from that destiny creates a fracturing from the Force. The soul is weakened and the Force is weakened.
People of this realm, you are not alone. The beings of the unseen realms, light the path within the stars. All of the details of each human’s original intent is embedded in the stars. The star alignments at the moment of birth contain every aspect of an individual’s true mission. Each transit is steering you back toward your true path. To know your star alignments is to know the Way.
As Above, So Below
The astrological chart is based on six axes, resulting in 12 points or poles to form a dodecagon. The dodecagon is formed by four intersecting equilateral triangles. Within the dodecagon is a reflection of divinity and a reflection of humanity. It is the symbol of our sameness. It is a symbol of our unity. Four represents stability and strong foundations. It is all that we need. It is born from the “three”. The “three” is the Goddess/magnetism; the God/electricity; and the Force/the all.
Twelve is the number of polarity. Polarity is a term that has come to be interpreted as “two things in direct contradiction to one another”. This is not accurate. Polarity is derived from the Latin, polus meaning “an end of an axis”. This misuse of language will cause great confusion in interpreting the astrological chart.
Individual consciousness lies at one end of the axis. The Force lies at the opposite end of the axis. They are both YOU. You are an individual unique expression of the Force. And you are a part of the collective that makes up the Force. There is no contradiction. Both have the exact same objective, to emulate divinity by taking part in the creative process, manifesting joy.
The six points that lie at the bottom half of the astrological chart represent the individual. The six points that lie at the top half of the astrological chart represent the others that make up the Force.
What is important to remember is that the individual does not exist without the other. We cannot exist and live an animated, material life without the others of the Force. Likewise, we cannot serve the others and the Force without first attending to our own individual needs. It is an alternating current of energy–not in contradiction, but instead in constant service. This is the key to understanding the aspect of the opposition in the astrological chart. We are in service to the one distinct resonance of the Force that is us “the individual. And we are in service to the entirety of the Force that is us “the all”.
Each axis has a magnetic pole and an electric pole. The magnetic pole is grounded to the Earth and draws on the magnetic charge of the Earth. The electrical pole is connected to the Force and draws on the charge of the all. When one pole is activated energy flows toward the opposite pole. When the opposite pole is activated, the energy switches direction and flows back. Therefore, the opposition, when activated properly is a kind of loop. It is an oscillating exchange of energy similar to an alternating current. To effectively understand the aspect of the opposition in the astrological chart, we must simply maintain a back and forth exchange between the “I” and the “All”.
Urania’s code holds the balance that is the Way of the Goddess within the dodecagon. The dodecagon reduces to three, and three is a magic number. Three holds all that there is and all that ever will be. It is representative of and a constant reminder of our origins. One is the Goddess–magnetism; two is the God–electricity; and three is the Force–the all.
The four equilateral triangles that make up the dodecagon, represent the four elements.
Your desire to be, born of the emptiness of the Goddess has propelled you onto the path of a great mission. There are six distinct objectives that must be met. Each objective contains an aspect of “self” and an aspect of “other”. To meet these objectives, you must be aware of them. The six axes create 12 points and result in a perfect 360-degree circle. However, based on the time of birth, the 12 points are not always equally spaced. These spaces are the “houses” of the astrological wheel.
This circle represents your unique resonance–a very specific, unique, aspect of the Force. The objective required for each house must be met for the effective operation of all of the other houses. They are dependent on one another. Each axis consists of a starting point and an ending point. The starting point represents what is needed by you as an individual; the ending point represents what is needed by you as part of the collective. There is “you” that exists as an individual. There is “you” that exists as the Force. Both are you at every moment of every day. You can express a unique aspect of the force but you cannot separate from it. The Force is you, always. The six axes provide you with everything that both aspects of yourself need. Your individual needs are not in opposition nor contradictory to your needs as part of the Force. They are simply connected. The Way of the Goddess is to keep the balance between the two.
The line of the axis is the doorway to the house it creates. This doorway is often referred to as a cusp. Some houses may have two cusps and therefore two doorways. The sign on the cusp of an astrological house shows us where to look for its Key. The Key opens the door allowing us access to what we need. To be able to find the Keys, we must first know the natural rulerships. The natural rulerships are the code that shows us where the keys to your houses have been hidden.
The Key of Sacred Identity
From the Latin, idem, meaning “the same (as above)” is born the modern English word identity. In claiming your identity, you claim your sameness with the Divine Union. Identity is often interpreted as a distinguishing quality which sets us apart from the collective. This is a half-truth. Identity is also the part of us that is the “same as above”. It is a distinct quality of the Divine Union that you desire (or have a sacred need) to express in the material realm.
The dark ones will do everything in their power to disconnect you from your sacred identity. Claiming your sacred identity gives you a powerful energetic connection to the God and the Goddess. When that connection is fragmented or severed, it not only drains your life force, it is also a drain on the Force. There is no other reason for you to be in this realm. Without your sacred identity, you will be lost and the Force will be weakened by your absence.
Courage is required to claim Sacred Identity. And so it is that we have entrusted the first key to our most courageous warrior, Mars.

Welcome students and seekers! I have called you and you have found me. And that was your first lesson. Well done!
To Seek is to Know
Gather round, hear my tale, and you too shall know.
I am Tatiana, daughter of Rome. As a child, each morning, the scent of sweet jasmine woke me from my slumber, my feet were greeted by the cool comfort of marble floors, my skin caressed by fine gauze and silks, my face refreshed with cool, clear water, and my eyes brightened as the frescoes of my ancestors, lifelike, reminded me of there presence guiding me through the coming day. A privileged life. As a child, I thought this is life on Earth–beautiful, wonderous perfection. As I grew, I began to accompany my father on excursions from our villa. Just outside our garden gates, was a very different world indeed. The cool comfort of the marble floors turned to cold, steely blades in the gnosis, the knowing. Luxury came at a price I was not willing to pay–being unafflicted and uncaring of my neighbors suffering.
Our servants whisperings in the marble halls, spread into our kitchens, their prayers into our food, their offerings into our dressing chambers until their knowing had become our knowing. My father embraced the knowing, I followed him and became a teacher of it. Rome, in its quest for power, had made many enemy’s. The men, women and children whose suffering supplied our marble, silks, fresh water, cornucopias of wine and food, and fine art. Enemy’s that now surrounded us. We had borrowed from the devil for the glory of Rome. In extolling the unbearable price, our traditions, religions, ceremonies, and rituals became distorted, ugly, vile, and despicable. We were a people who knew only the opulence created of suffering. While are bodies grew fat on cakes and wine, our spirits were starving just as the beggars outside our gates. As I recall, the time was about 230 years, after the Nazarene walked the Earth. Little did we know at the time, his words were echoes of an ancestral remembering. A remembering of the Guardian’s quest to protect and elevate humanity. It was his words that were carried in the whispering of the halls. And it was his words that I taught. And it was for his words, that I died. We had no care for tradition, pomp, or ritual. Our souls’ were much too hungry for that. With our enemies surrounding us, ready to make us pay our due for the unbearable price, we were desperate for salvation. Salvation came in the words of the Nazarene. The gnosis allowed me to meet my death with joy, grace, and peace.
I am a devoted daughter of Sophia and remain within the spiritual realms of the earth plane to bring comfort, stamina, and focus to seekers. Salvation is in the seeking. And now I will tell you one of the greatest secrets of all. What we think we know today can turn into something quite different after the shadows of the storm have passed. There is no end to the knowing. It grows, evolves and changes. It is born as an infant, helpless, grows strong and independent in its playing, mellows into aged wisdom, turns into the eagle ascending on the thermals, seeing the world from an entirely new perspective. And from the new perspective, nothing is known and the knowing is an infant once more. To hold too tight to our religious beliefs and dogma is to know regret. Not until we make the ascension can we see all that there is to see and know all that there is to know. The seeing and knowing does not come all at once, but instead unfolds in layers with each plateau along the ascent.
I know your suffering for I have suffered. I will comfort you in times of trauma and persecution. I will give you the stamina to endure and the focus to comprehend. Seek me and your quest will bring forth the fruit of enlightenment.
The peoples of Russia and Ukraine have embraced me and kept my memory alive, generation after precious generation. They have made me their patron saint of students. This act of love and respect has endeared me to their rich culture and hauntingly beautiful lands.
To invoke my presence bring this culture into your homes and call me to you. My essence is the oil of the Siberian Fir. This hardy, majestic spirit never quits giving to those who live in the cold boreal forests. It sustains and shelters through the long, harsh spell of winter. Its precious oil brings calm in the face of trauma and sparks a focused and clear mind for the seeker.
My crystal is Ukrainian beryl which holds the same energy of calming and focus as the Siberian Fir.
The music reminiscent of Russia and Ukraine is delightful to my ears. And their art and architecture are delightful to my eyes. Singularly or combined these things will draw my presence near.
Seek. Rise. Know.

Rulership: Venus & Mars, united as one
Magickal Properties: Protection through Coyote Medicine, Positivity, Sustained Action, Attraction of Complimentary Energies, Guidance to Divine Purpose
As the flocks of Simurgh flew over the arid slopes of the Peruvian Andes, my seeds lit upon the ground and took root. I flourished in these majestic highlands. Venus blessed me with her beauty and grace and it was my beauty that initially attracted the sons and daughters of man to taste of my fruit. My limbs, flowers, and berries are delicate and graceful. And my aroma is quite intoxicating. Venus was not content to keep me to herself and she called Mars to me, enticing him to lend me his powers. For in me she saw a great will to live in a place that despite its haunting beauty was fraught with all manner of calamity. What appears as delicate and fragile is actually, bold, strong, courageous, and active.
And so it was that I became to have a dual purpose and nature. This duality allows me to be a great trickster and coyote walks beside me. Man uses me as black pepper, the piper nigrum, which truly is ruled by Mars and Mars alone. But I fooled man, for I am not even remotely related to the piper nigrum. Man is not the only species to be tricked by me. The moths that love to feed upon nigrum’s branches, relish mine as well.
Respect me and I will show you how to trick and outwit your opponents, overcome hardship, and lead you to your true calling. My energy works by attracting, initiating and sustaining action. I am evergreen and never rest. I can attract to you, your most complimentary mate and inspire you to initiate contact. Ask, and I will attract to you the memories of a time before the veil—the memories of your pre-birth desires. And I will give you a most powerful urge to initiate down the path of their manifestation. I will soothe your nerves, allow you to fixate on a focused goal, and give you the energy to pursue it, all at the same time.
For mundane purposes, I can be useful as an insecticide diluted and sprayed around plants and the home. My resins have been used to heal small ulcer-like wounds and to set bones. My essential oil, mixed with a carrier oil and massaged into the affected area can comfort those with sore muscles and menstrual cramps. My aroma can brighten the mood and energize those who suffer melancholy. Sprinkle my crushed berries onto food for a uniquely floral, peppery kick.
My essential oils contain limonene which can be quite toxic to your four-legged friends and small children. Keep me far out of reach. Never diffuse me or bring me into direct contact with household pets, infants, sensitive children, and pregnant or nursing mothers.
Respect my strength, use me wisely and I will serve you well.
Aromatic Description: The smell of black pepper with citrus and a hint of floral undertones.

As an author, it is nearly impossible to be objective about one’s own work. I have no idea if I’ve written a story that someone would find entertaining or valuable in any way. I feel that I didn’t even write the story. It simply came to me one day as a group of big beautiful wolf spiders decided to take up residence in my home. I implore the help of anyone who passes this way. I am offering free pdf versions of Arachne: The Pride of Persia to anyone willing to leave an honest review on my kindle page. It doesn’t have to be a glowing review, just the plain simple truth is much appreciated.
