Few women are so demonised in the bible as Jezebel – daughter of the Phoenician queen. She is power at its wildest, upon the boundary of totalitarian and madness – but so, too, comes an unmatched resourcefulness. She is a being of excess – bountifully overflowing with wealth, splendour and rage. She is the ruling tempest, the pagan maelstrom – nature, gnashing at the walls and striking like lightning at the very foundation at the shrine of Yahweh. She is the jury, judge and executioner – her word is law. And with an army at her beck and call, she constructed a heathen kingdom in the “Holy Land.”
Call upon her for: Leadership, ruthlessness, control, justice, decimation of doubt, domination, fertility, fruitfulness, wealth, financial gain, cult ceremony and worship of the old gods.
“Take what you want and destroy anyone who stands in your way.”
Symbols: The star of Astarte and the crown
