solstice greetings from the land of serpents
The ancient Greeks called Galicia Ophiussa, Land of Serpents, because the people that lived there were said to worship serpents. There are serpent and spiral petroglyphs all over Galicia, dating from the bronze age that support this claim – as there are in many parts of the world.
The serpent, like the dragon, represents the telluric currents of the earth – the electro-magnetic energy lines that shape existence. It also represents the kundalini energy in the human, that grounds the earth energy and adds awareness to it – those who know how it works benefit from it as they aim it. The ancients knew something of this and their knowledge is now available to anyone who commands the power of the Planetary Animal Mother.
This is one aspect of the power of the Aeonic Mother, to be recognized by the Rhomay, that Spells out Christianity for Good.

This is the Pedra do Serpe (Stone of the Serpent) found near Pontereas in Pontevedra. The cross is a recent addition.
These are from another site, Campo Lemeiro.
Post illa rursum quae supra fati sumus,magnus patescit aequoris fusi sinus
Ophiussam ad usque. rursum ab huius litoreinternum ad aequor, qua mare insinuare sedixi ante terris, quodque
Sardum nuncupant,septem dierum tenditur pediti via.
Ophiussa porro tanta panditur latusquantam iacere Pelopis audis insulam
Graiorum in agro. haec dicta primo Oestrymnis estlocos et arva
Oestrymnicis habitantibus,post multa serpens effugavit incolasvacuamque glaebam nominis fecit sui.
From Ora Maritima.
The “serpent people” of the semi-mythical Ophiussa in the far west are noted in ancient Greek sources.
