‘A fleet hoofed horse
moves swift as quick wit’
– Old English Proverb
…’ After spiriting George away from his mother’s side,
Kalyb, the fell enchantress tended to him as the apple of her eye,
and appointed twelve Satyrs to attend his every whim.’
Twelve of anything usually refers to months of the year.
‘When he was fourteen years old George
demanded to know who were his parents.
Kalyb told him and showed him a castle of burnished brass
wherein she held captive the six bravest Knights of Christendom’…
The seven champions are the planetary bodies again.
George would naturally have to be the Sun,
which if they are given in correct order makes Mars
Spain which for this period in history works rather well!
There is also a salient point here, though.
The energies of what the Hebrews used to call the Elohim
are ordinarily shut up, or banked, in the subconscious,
and can only be ‘set free’ by the Id at which point
they emerge to form a natural component of the Identity.
The Subconscious Mind could even be regarded,
for most people, as an Unseen Presence.
‘Kalyb promised that if only George stayed with her
she would equip him as a knight
and make him the leader of those in the castle.’
‘George tricked his knightly accoutrements from Kalyb,
tricked her into her own rock-hewn dungeon,
and freed the knights to go dragon slaying’…
Which pretty much means that George,
the Patron Saint of England, is a Trickster!
‘Hearing of a foul beast terrorising the country of Egypt,
George set his will, and charger, in that direction’…
Egypt, presumably, because ‘she’ is
the Old World exemplar for Christianity.
