Thoth and Ma'at: Together Again



On the evening of Saturday 3/26 Reese Witherspoon married Hollywood agent Jim Toth at her ranch in Ojai, California.


First, to state the obvious, the name Toth gives us instant sync reveberations to the Egyptian god Thoth.

The ancient Greeks equated Thoth with their god Hermes, adding yet another link to the chain of the Messenger meme that has been developing recently (see previous post Mercury Rising and the Messenger Cometh).
[Thoth] played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities (the other being Ma'at, who was also his wife) who stood on either side of Ra's boat.—Wikipedia
Jim Toth is resonating Thoth, and his new wife Reese Witherspoon is resonating as our modern-day archetype for the goddess Ma'at.

According to Egyptian mythology Thoth and Ma'at stood on either side of Ra's solar boat...


...just as Witherspoon (an Oscar-winning actress) and Toth (a high-powered Hollywood agent) work on opposite sides of the cameRA.


Ma'at was Ancient Egypt's "Golden Girl". She embodied the concepts of Truth, Balance, Order, Law, Morality, and Justice represented as a young woman.

She was often pictured holding a was scepter, the symbol of power, in one hand and an ankh, the symbol of eternal life, in the other.


Ma'at was also sometimes depicted with wings on each arm or wearing the "feather of Truth" on her head.

Reese is rumored to be co-starring alongside Tom Cruise in the upcoming movie 'Paper Wings'.

Noteworthy too is the fact that Witherspoon's home is located in the California town of Ojai, which means "Valley of the Moon".

Synchromystically, this aligns with her very first major movie role as Dani Trant in the 1987 film "The Man in the Moon".

Dani falls in love with a neighbor boy who later dies in a nasty tractor incident (spoiler...sorry)—an allusion to the symbiotic relationship between Ma'at and the god of the underworld Osiris (who was dismembered by Set).


Reese's association with the Moon also connects us to the movie E.T. (where the alien's favorite food is Reese's Pieces).

Which, of course, ties in with the death of Elizabeth Taylor (E.T.) on 3/23.


The guys over at The Sync Whole blog recently expounded on the link between Taylor, the superstar actress with the "Big Heart", and the alien E.T.'s big glowing Heart in a new video [at 3:37 in the video].

This gives us a crucial clue to the Heart-related syncs that started emerging with the Class X Solar Flare on Valentine's Day 2/14 and culminated with the Sendai earthquake/tsunami in Japan on 3/11. (see my previous post The Heartquake)

In the Duat, the Egyptian underworld, the HEARTS of the dead were said to be weighed against the single "Feather of Ma'at" in the divine court of Osiris.


Thus, the emergence of the Ma'at archetype at this time seems to signal the weighing of our Collective Heart/Earth Consciousness against basic Universal values and principals (see Maat: 42 Negative Confessions).

In order to pass the test, the Heart must be lighter than the feather, empty of all the weight of the world.

A few words of advice: Think Light.



Cleopatra addendum:
Cista (or cista mystica), a basket used for housing sacred snakes in connection with the initiation ceremony into the cult of Bacchus (Dionysus). In the Dionysian mysteries a serpent, representing the god, was carried in a box called a cista on a bed of vine leaves. This may be the Cista mentioned by Clement of Alexandria which was exhibited as containing the phallus of Dionysus. The cista mentioned in the mysteries of Isis may also have held a serpent, the missing phallus of Osiris....

Several ancient dignitaries put about the rumour that they had been fathered by a god in serpent form. The emperor Augustus was said to have been fathered by a snake, and his mother never afterwards lost the marks of its embrace. A serpent was said to have been found beside the sleeping Olympias, mother of Alexander the Great. Her husband, Philip of Macedon, is reputed never to have coupled with the 'Bride of the Serpent' again. Alexander is sometimes connected with the horned serpent.
(Numiswiki, "Cista Mystica")
Plutarch ... reports that ... [Cleopatra] was found dead, her handmaiden Iras dying at her feet, and another handmaiden, Charmion, adjusting her crown before she herself fell.[49] He then goes on to state that an asp was concealed in a basket of figs that was brought to her by a rustic, and, finding it after eating a few figs, she held out her arm for it to bite.... in Octavian's triumphal march back in Rome, an effigy of Cleopatra that had an asp clinging to it was part of the parade. ("Cleopatra")

(Christine Mitchell Havelock, The Aphrodite of Knidos and Her Successors)
?
Isis and the serpents share a long history. In the beginning, the word for "deity" was composed of the god or goddess's name and the small image of a snake, most likely a cobra. There is some speculation that the pharaohs of Egypt were ritually sacrificed at the end of their term, and that the Sed festival, or jubilee, was originally the moment of truth for the pharaoh, who would celebrate his reign and then accept the bite of a poisonous asp. While direct evidence for this practice is scanty now, it is interesting that Cleopatra chose this method to end her own life when she believed that it was futile for her to attempt to continue her rule of Egypt.

  2. just catching up now with the recent posts - so awesome!
    it's all tying perfectly with a post i did a bit ago at constellation contemplation, the bird is the word
    sibyl, good eye on the reece/maat connection! it's fitting that apparently "reece" means "enthusiasm" which comes from the Greek word "enthousiasmos" which means "divine inspiration"

    the other day i spontaneously started watching the tv series Eli Stone about an attorney of the LAW (scales of balance), who starts hearing music and having visions that give him signs aka syncs to guide him.

    and kind of funny, i watched Limitless at the theater a couple weeks ago and indulged in some reeces pieces for the first time in years :)

    i'm all jazzed now, always inspired by all of you!
