Henceforth my wooing mind shall be expressed
In russet yeas and honest kersey noes.
Love's Labour's Lost, William Shakespeare
Before we continue this assessment it is vital to your comprehension that you understand the full spectrum of colours that are being deployed under ''Russet''. A simple search of google reveals very light orangey-russets all the way to fairly deep red ones and the movies/fashion that are working with this colour are using all of them. You will see this full spectrum displayed in the lighting, set and costume designs for Joker and Ad Astra.
THE RED WORK
As you can see we are now moving into the final phase of the Year of Malkuth (2019, 1 + 9 = 10), the Red or Russet Phase of this Qabalastic Alchemical Ritual. In Alchemy, the Rubedo, or Red Work comes at the end of the alchemical process and indicates success in creating the Philosopher's Stone. The symbols used in alchemy to represent this stage of the Great Work are Blood, the Phoenix, the Rose and a Crowned King. The principles of Alchemy are folded into Golden Dawn derived Hermetic Qabalah in two ways a) planetary metals associated with the Sefirot according to the planet i.e. Chesed (2013) relates to Jupiter so is associated with Tin, or Tifereth (2015) relates to Sol so is associated with Gold and b) another system which uses the Paracelsian Mercury, Salt, Sulfur and the planetary metals. I have mainly focused on a) throughout the Unifying Color Theory but it is impossible to rule out that b) is also being used in a way that I can't currently understand. Russet, a browny-red is associated with the bloody earth or red clay out of which Adam was originally formed and throughout the Hermetic Lessons we have associated this with haemoglobin the active component of red blood cells. Adam is spelt ADM (Alef-Dalet-Mem), A or Alef associated with air, and DM meaning ''red soil''.
Yesterday (4th October), Extinction Rebellion the protest group with the Malkuthian logo design sprayed the Treasury with Blood from a lovely, red, shiny fire engine to protest about the Government's involvement with ''climate death''. Back during the Green Phase, Theresa May lit No. 10 (Malkuth) with Green Light, twice, and I can't help but see the similarity in this stunt of spraying the Treasury (implying Gold the outcomes of the Alchemical work mentioned above) blood-red and other aspects of the ''theatrical form'' guiding this.
NOTRE DAME ATTACK
On the same day a blood sacrifice was committed right by Notre Dame, the alchemical cathedral which featured in various key positions of this year long ritual from the transfer between yellow and green, to the comparisons made with the viral memes during the Amazon fire of the Black Summer. This sacrifice was a freakish attack from inside a police security facility where one tech guy with a knife somehow managed to murder four anti-terrorism officers. I cannot help but thinking that the ceramic knife used is important somehow in its role as a sacrificial blade and that some kind of MK-ULTRA was used.
A reminder that the plan to deploy the military in the event of chaos relating to a no-deal Brexit is called Operation Redfold. This is to contrast with emergency planning that came under the moniker Operation Yellowhammer. I am assuming based on the principle of ''Ordo Ab Chao ''that we are heading towards a no-deal Brexit. It would make sense within this ritual to unleash total chaos upon the UK at the end of October. I can see how a lot of people are pushing it to make money shorting the pound in the ensuing financiageddon but I think its more to do with how society will be guided in the future and the role of the UK in that.
In Aristophanes' ''The Birds'', daimones set up a spiritual blockade of heaven in order to starve the Gods of energy. The play speculates that the Gods are fed by prayer and sacrifice and that the Daimones (or Birds), since they occupy the realm between mortals and immortals, can effectively control this ''trade route''. There has been a lot of trade war this year, ostensibly under various forms of nationalist ideology of making a given country great again, but there are some other levels to consider when thinking about the impact of trade war in the context of everything else we've been seeing. In order to prevent climate change the economy has to be stalled and standards of living will have to be dropped. While environmentalists might voluntarily live like feudal peasants because of their ideology, nationalists will need some kind of ''war'' to justify another round of approaching austerity. Both of these ideological weapons will be used in order to usher all people towards the ''Hunger Games society''. I still believe that public acceptance of geoengineering is one of the preferred outcomes of the ritual theatre and we are seeing more and more references to carbon capture and the like in the mainstream media.
