On Thursday September 24th, the Hermetic Hour will present a live broadcast of the Festival of Seven Gates, Astarte’s descent into the Underworld to ressuerrect Prince Baal. This is our 46th annual performance of this ancient Autumn Equinox rite which was inspired by Ishtar’s descent and Princess Salome’s Dance of the Seven Veils. Tune in and celebrate with us. Astarte to the Dark Lord:
“Seven Veils I left behind me, on the Gates through which I passed,
Seven treasures given dearly, but I freely yield the last!
For my hidden veil is darkness, where the final secrets lie….
In thy pride thou hast forgotten: Even Death must surley Die!”
