It's title is "Occult Metamorphosis" with the description "Angelic female face transforming into a sinister occult goat-horned figure against a background of Latin script. Digital art created from ancient Scottish graveyard sculptures." It was designed by the talented graphic artists at Creativehearts. The image was entirely appropriate for my original manuscript which was originally titled "Divine Metamorphosis".
While the artist's description is reflective of present-day popular culture, it is far from historically accurate. In historic reality, the Ram's symbolic origins has nothing to do with the occult whatsoever. Our modern Western world is the product of the Christian Church which was in conflict with many entities and religions. The Church failed miserably in its moral duty during its 1,600 years or so struggle for for supremacy. It's head (the pope) was, and still is, the leader of his flock, and he, symbolically always was, and still is, the Ram. And when it comes to the occult, one should always remember that it was the Christian Church that invented the Devil, not anyone else. And the Ram as a symbol of the Devil? Well, that's superstitious mythology invented be the same religious institution to obfuscate its role in the many tragedies it, and only it, inflicted on the world. But that, as they say, is history now. Unfortunately, its also a history you are not supposed to know.
