Hello and welcome back to IlluminatiWatcher.com!
Today we’re going to explore some ideas surrounding Beyonce’s latest endeavor of propaganda- Lemonade…
What is Lemonade?
Beyonce’s latest visual album called Lemonade was released on HBO for one day only and then immediately placed on the TIDAL music service- a stunt intended to get people interested in signing up so they can see it (*your humble author was forced into this since I missed the HBO showing).
We already know Beyonce’s Lemonade is a machine of symbolism thanks to our establishment of TIDAL’s hidden and occult messaging…
Lemonade: The Obvious
The visual album tells a story of Beyonce’s home life and relationship with husband (rapper Jay-Z). Beyond that it touches on some narratives about the female roles that society has dictated with a slight tinge of empowerment for black women, which is part of the draw of Beyonce’s following since she is providing an outlet for many females looking for a strong woman in entertainment.
This is precisely why I find it valuable to talk about Beyonce and the message she conveys to her audience, which numbers into the millions on a global level. Anytime I see a celebrity with this much power I have to question if there is a motive behind their message and if someone ELSE is pulling the strings. When we see Beyonce flexing her beauty and sexual prowess while simultaneously telling us that sex equals power; we should try to discern the true meaning behind this performance.
Could it be that she is truly telling us about Jay-Z’s infidelity and how he slept with a hair stylist and now she is threatening him?… I find this to be the “official” story and hardly worth believing. Jay-Z claimed to be supportive of this move because he believed it would make their marriage stronger but I suspect these two power houses are merely playing the fans in an attempt to capture momentum for something bigger.
In fact, the Lemonade video is solely being shown on TIDAL which is obviously connected back to Jay-Z and Beyonce’s bank account, so why wouldn’t it be a publicity stunt?
The latter portion of the video shows us more political overtones with social justice considerations similar to the Black Lives Matter movement. Beyonce and Jay-Z have long been entangled with this so that is nothing new (*recall that they were funneling money into Baltimore to support the protestors). Beyonce also provides some commentary on the status and role of black women, taking her movement one step further into more thoughtful territory. This analysis you’re reading isn’t going to delve into this portion of the video, I’ll leave that to dozens of other articles addressing these sensitive issues for the reader to consider.
Of course, we have to understand that all of the Beyonce stans were out in full force (including practically every useless gossip site) as they adored her every move and obsessed over how she looked here and there throughout the video. Most were obsessed with the status of her and Jay-Z’s relationship which I argue is a ruse intended to grab our attention. Well played Beyonce and Jay-Z; well played…
Beltane: A Holiday of Sacrifice
The video was released on HBO on April 23rd, 2016 during a pagan timeframe known as Beltane. Many are familiar with this idea as I laid out in the Illuminati and Occult Holidays article, but one must understand these ancient pagan sacrifice holidays are still celebrated to this day. While most holidays have been altered quite a bit, one must wonder why the British Royal Family still light Bailfires on May 1st—a ceremony that was once intended to offer up burnt sacrifices of children to the deity of Ba’al (hence “Ba’alfires”).
The sacrifices to Ba’al (aka Moloch) are often symbolized by the Mano Cornuto horned hands (which we’ve seen from Beyonce who claims it’s a reference to the U of T horns– which is STILL a witch hex anyways):
The year of 2016 has been quite interesting in that we’ve had a couple other instances occurring during this time period (the 13 days prior to May 1st). Consider that New York City and London both wanted to rebuild the Temple of Ba’al in their cities during this timeframe (*but has since been cancelled).
Also, we saw the mysterious passing of Prince as he died inside of an elevator (which he claimed represented the Devil in his song “Let’s Go Crazy”).
Speaking of Prince, let’s talk about the Apollonian ritual…
Apollonian Ritual into the Altered State
Beyonce features several poems during her visual album, but I want to focus particularly on her “Denial” chapter. This poem is taken from Warsan Shire:
I tried to change. Closed my mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less awake. Fasted for 60 days, wore white, abstained from mirrors, abstained from sex, slowly did not speak another word. In that time, my hair, I grew past my ankles. I slept on a mat on the floor. I swallowed a sword. I levitated. Went to the basement, confessed my sins, and was baptized in a river. I got on my knees and said ‘amen’ and said ‘I mean.’
What she talks about here could possibly be the practice of achieving an altered state through the two paths of enlightenment (as per Friedrich Nietzsche). The Dionysian model seeks for the practitioner to achieve communion with the deities through overloading the physical senses through drugs and music, while the Apollonian seeks to enlighten through purification. Fasting, wearing white, and abstaining from sex are all examples of how to pursue this contact with higher spiritual powers. Combine this with the talk of levitation, and one must wonder if she isn’t allowing a spiritual demon or deity to take possession of her.
Beyonce has made claims of contacting higher energies that flow through her during performances so this isn’t all that farfetched.
Further in it gets a bit darker:
I whipped my own back and asked for dominion at your feet. I threw myself into a volcano. I drank the blood and drank the wine. I sat alone and begged and bent at the waist for God. I crossed myself and thought I saw the devil. I grew thickened skin on my feet, I bathed in bleach, and plugged my menses with pages from the holy book, but still inside me, coiled deep, was the need to know … Are you cheating on me?
Here we see some very odd lyrics to consider. It sounds as if she is claiming that Jay-Z is “God” when she says she “bends at the waist” for him which doesn’t shock me since I’ve presented this argument in the hip hop conspiracy book SACRIFICE: MAGIC BEHIND THE MIC where we learn how the occultists take on god names and pursue the enlightenment and knowledge needed to become a god (*in their belief system).
It seems to me that Beyonce was initiated into occult practices through ritualistic manners- similar to what we saw from Rihanna’s latest ANTI (also a visual album of sorts).
When I claim that Beyonce’s latest work shows us her journey into occult initiation; I mean that a lot of the symbolism she shows us is similar to that in which an occultist initiate goes through before being let into the inner circle.
First, they show her in the bathtub- symbolizing the preparation needed before a ritual (as any good witch should know):
Next we see the initiate being led to face their own death– symbolizing death of the ego:
We see Beyonce going “underground” as she goes into the water– symbolizing the time the initiate spends in “death” so they can be “resurrected” as a newly formed being; transformed through the processes of alchemy:
Another part of the initiate journey is to understand the abandonment of organized religion– particularly organized religion. Beyonce tells us she “plugged” her menses with pages from the Bible as well which sounds borderline satanic if you consider what she is really saying here.
Did Jay-Z influence her to become interested in the dark side of occultism? Has she totally abandoned her Christian roots?
Her dark imagery and even darker words suggest it could be so…
In Conclusion: Jay-Z’s Occult ‘Takeover’ of Beyonce
Beyonce’s art is becoming more intense and darker as time goes by. She seems to be following Jay-Z’s lead who is far more esoteric than many give credit to. For instance, Jay-Z wore the “Do what thou wilt” hoodie in the making of Run This Town, which is a reference to Aleister Crowley’s Thelema religion:
If you’re not familiar with Crowley yet, we really need to have a talk. This ceremonial magician was influential for various movements of occultism as well as introducing aliens into our pop culturesphere as well as ushering in the Aeon of Horus while attempting the destruction of Christianity.
Jay-Z has also been subtlety referencing the philosophy of the new age—nihilism. Professor Eugene Thacker’s book on horror and nihilism called “In the Dust of this Planet” is seen on a jacket worn by Jay-Z in the video he and Beyonce put together for “Run.”
This book was also utilized by Nic Pizzolatto to create the role of the main character in True Detective (another show with various occult ties in both Season 1 and Season 2 with Crowley and horned deity references).
The concern here is not that Jay-Z has been reading too many books- but rather his interest in the occult combined with the power he wields as a mega-celebrity and entertainer. We all know the power music has on us so we should also be concerned with the type of music we are focused on and what its performers desire as an end result.
When we see Beyonce wearing the Egyptian ankh we should look further than the fashion symbol it is commonly thought to represent. The ankh represents life and the New Age movement used it to further their symbolic powers as well. When you consider the connections between the Age of Aquarius and Crowley’s Aeon of Horus (as I did in SACRIFICE: MAGIC BEHIND THE MIC), it quickly becomes obvious that many are being led down the path of the New Age.
Wiki tells us that E.A. Wallis Budge claimed this symbol represented the belt buckle of Isis, which would only makes sense since she was the archetypal mother goddess which is what we see Beyonce as. In fact, the term diva comes from the Hindu Vedas to represent actual goddesses. When we hear that Beyonce is a “diva” they are indeed referencing her as one of the same deities she is known to channel (e.g. Sasha Fierce).
Beyonce is now being labeled as a “political goddess” which further blurs the lines of entertainment and real life.
This is a byproduct of our age of reality television and social media in a world where Donald Trump has a serious possibility of becoming the most powerful man in the entire world. Nothing against Beyonce but I’ll take my political views from someone who hasn’t been put on a pedestal their entire lives. If the fans think they should turn to her for political advice then maybe they should go ahead and pull the lever for Trump because neither of these people has spent a moment of their adult lives in the shoes of typical middle class folks (*nothing personal against Trump; I think he’s quite entertaining and I can even appreciate his non-politician approach; however I don’t know that he’s all that “presidential”).
It should also be noted that Lemonade features the track called Formation that was used during the controversial 2016 Super Bowl halftime performance…
I don’t want to blame Beyonce for being put into this position as some kind of “savior” because I think she’s been duped into this role. Like many entertainers, she’s just taken that Faustian bargain is now being forced into conveying the symbols and messages “THEY” want her to. Some even claim that Jay-Z is her handler as an MKULTRA mind control experiment, and I believe evidence for this grows since her latest visual album shows us darker aspects of Beyonce similar to Jay-Z’s occult interests…
