Intro

 

I, Marquis Massimiliano Palombara, once hosted a pilgrim in my villa in Rome, on a full moon night.

The pilgrim and I spent a precious evening together, sharing food, wine, thoughts and secrets.

Then we said goodnight to each other.

I went to bed, eager to see him again in the morning and continue our interesting talk.

But the pilgrim was restless and instead of going to sleep, he searched the gardens of my villa all night long, looking for a mysterious herb to produce gold with.

What herb he found and how he used it, I cannot tell.

The next morning I was waiting to meet the pilgrim again, but I was told that he was seen passing through the door and he disappeared.

He disappeared forever, leaving behind a few flakes of gold, fruits of a successful alchemical transmutation.

He also left a mysterious paper with puzzling symbols and seven epigraphs, containing the secrets of the Philosopher's Stone.

I had the symbols and the seven epigraphs engraved on the door of my gardens, and am certain that one day they will be decoded...

 

 

 

Saturnine Night

 

Saturn shows to the naked eye

a bright light in the night sky,

as in the bowels of the vealed earth

from the black stone appears the bird

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES

WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

Eyes to the call here comes the beat,

fearlessly follow the sacred heat,

hail to the fire, offer to feed,

dissolving desire from its own seed

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES

WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES

WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

Sulphureous baptism beneath the lightning

where blooming spheres unseal the vision,

as mercury dances frightening fears

it opens the gates to still all the tears

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES

WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

WHEN IN YOUR HOUSE BLACK CROWS GIVE BIRTH TO WHITE DOVES

WILL YOU BE CALLED WISE

 

 

 

 

Jupiter's Dew

 

I walked in the forest of dangers

dreaming of being devoured by the beasts,

or was I devouring them all?

Just to be alone in my fairy solitude

 

I saw the bird of a thousand colors

turning all poisons into healing blows,

he was flying against the sun,

his shadow was growing inside me,

brightening the way... towards you

 

THE DIAMETER OF THE SPHERE,

THE TAU IN THE CIRCLE,

THE CROSS IN THE GLOBE,

BRING NO JOY TO THE BLIND

 

I walked out of that forest,

opened my eyes

to tranform my tears into dew,

the spirits of the mist where secretly singing

of the sacred love in the fire of sublimation.

 

THE DIAMETER OF THE SPHERE,

THE TAU IN THE CIRCLE,

THE CROSS IN THE GLOBE,

BRING NO JOY TO THE BLIND

 

the spirits of the mist where secretly singing,

of the sacred love that lives

in the fire... of sublimation

 

 

 

Water of Mars

 

Who can hold the sword of wisdom,

who is pure of heart and soul,

who's so brave to leave his kingdom,

Can he face the mirror's ghoul?

 

Who can hear and see the angel

after having crossed the waves,

whithout putting off the flames,

enters the salamander's domain

 

WHO KNOWS HOW TO BURN WITH WATER

AND HOW TO WASH WITH FIRE

CAN MAKE HEAVEN OF EARTH

AND A PRECIOUS EARTH OF HEAVEN

 

Who can love with no beloved one,

who can search without a path

guided by the unknown nostalgia

will reach the iron's gate to home

 

There he'll find and ride the dragon,

who will show him his own world

through the creatures' dance and chanting

before enthroning with his crown

 

WHO KNOWS HOW TO BURN WITH WATER

AND HOW TO WASH WITH FIRE

CAN MAKE HEAVEN OF EARTH

AND A PRECIOUS EARTH OF HEAVEN

 

 

 

Venus the Bride

 

After a scary night with the golden down,

Venus comes out of the shell

 

The embrace of the goddess hides a starry furnace

where the arcane of the Rebis reigns

 

Blessed by the serpent scepter of Hermes,

the lover ascends the draft to join his female half

 

The chemical wedding starts, the Moon marries the Sun,

Venus marries Mars

 

IF YOU MAKE THE EARTH FLY OVER YOUR HEAD,

WITH ITS WINGS YOU'LL TURN

THE WATERS OF THE CREEKS INTO STONE

 

After a starry night with the golden down,

the Bride comes out of the shell

 

From black to white, here appears her green light

that leads the sheppard of nature's spirits

 

With the language of birds and the music of the spheres,

he celebrates the ceremony

 

The alchemical wedding starts, the Moon marries the Sun,

Venus marries Mars

 

IF YOU MAKE THE EARTH FLY OVER YOUR HEAD,

WITH ITS WINGS YOU'LL TURN

THE WATERS OF THE CREEKS INTO STONE

 

The mystic wedding starts, the Moon marries the Sun

and Venus marries...

 

 

 

Mercury Unveiled

 

As the light of the moon marks the way of the sun,

as the ardent water falls from the earth to the sky,

they surround the white goodess

as she changes her skin... like a snake

 

AS EARTH WILL BE WHITENED BY MERCURY AND FIRE,

SILVER WILL REVEAL ITSELF

 

AS LATONA IS WHITENED BY AZOTH AND LIGHTNENING,

DIANA COMES UNDRESSED

 

As the black becomes white in a bright cloudless night

and the one becomes two, as the light one goes through,

The dress falls off and watches

as the body makes a shape... flying away

 

AS EARTH WILL BE WHITENED BY MERCURY AND FIRE,

SILVER WILL REVEAL ITSELF

 

AS LATONA IS WHITENED BY AZOTH AND LIGHTNENING,

DIANA COMES UNDRESSED

 

As the light of the moon marks the way of the sun,

as the ardent water falls from the earth to the sky,

as the female receives it countains all the forms,

she's the mother of gold,

as above so below

 

 

 

Sun in a Flame

 

From the love of Hermes and Aphrodite

appears the two-faced son,

rising from a golden horizon,

male and female ride a dragon

 

From the death of a black crow

a god is born in a flame,

angel wings as white as snow,

Rebis is his name

 

OUR DEAD SON LIVES,

RETURNS FROM THE FIRE AS A KING,

REJOICES OVER THE OCCULT MATING

 

From the ashes of spirit and matter

comes out the tree of the world,

with branches like a spring

and deep roots in the sky

 

From the egg of a white dove

a god is born in a flame,

with three legs and four arms,

Rebis is his name

 

OUR DEAD SON LIVES,

RETURNS FROM THE FIRE AS A KING,

REJOICES OVER THE OCCULT MATING

 

The royal pair seeks to unite

to give birth to their child,

red head, black eyes, feet white

it is alchemical mastery

 

From the love of Hermes and Aphrodite

a god is born in a flame,

with two heads and one heart,

Rebis is his name

 

OUR DEAD SON LIVES,

RETURNS FROM THE FIRE AS A KING,

REJOICES OVER THE OCCULT MATING

 

 

 

V.I.T.R.I.O.L.

 

The magic door you found and crossed

guided by planets and gods

 

Secrets seen but not revealed,

hidden housed in all the steps

 

The mirror of water you looked into

showed your face before the depths

 

The sacred journey was sublime,

the portal vanished as you passed the line.

 

THE SECRET DEED OF THE TRUE SAGE

IS OPEN EARTH TO GENERATE SALVATION FOR MEN.

 

The earth you visited deep inside,

the stone you found once purified.

 

The seven phases you went through

as the Pilgrim before you.

 

A blind descent not looking back

as in Demeter's sacrifice.

 

The realm you entered was divine

after dying in your mother's line.

 

THE SECRET DEED OF THE TRUE SAGE

IS OPEN EARTH TO GENERATE SALVATION FOR MEN.

 

The mirror of water you looked into

showed your face before the depths.

 

Secrets seen but not revealed

hidden housed in all the steps.

 

The magic door you found and crossed

guided by planets and gods.

 

The sacred journey was sublime,

the portal vanished as you passed the line.

 

THE SECRET DEED OF THE TRUE SAGE

IS OPEN EARTH TO GENERATE SALVATION FOR MEN.

 

The magic door you found and crossed,

secrets seen but not revealed.

 

The mirror of water you looked into,

the seven phases you went through.

 

The earth you visited deep inside,

a blind descent not looking back.

The sacred journey was sublime,

the realm you entered was divine.
