Origins of Druidry, Wicca, OTO, Thelema, AMORC, Golden Dawn, Theosophical Society

An interesting video about modern semi-secret magical orders, and their common origin from a female perspective within this subject. AMORC stands for The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, more commonly known as the Rosicrucian Order. Their headquarters is an Egyptian museum in San Jose, which anyone can visit (Rosicrucian Park). At the beginning, there's an interesting part about "Freemasonic Druidry." Generally, I think she hit the nail on the head with this. I would disagree with a few minor points.

The serpent symbolizes feminine-oriented knowledge and wisdom; and the male-oriented eagle allegorically takes this wisdom away for it's own purposes. However, I think there is at least some grey area.. historically-speaking.

From the video:

"In ancient times, all the tribes were matriarchal. There may have been kings, and priests, but only the queen or the priestess made him one by annointing him. It was these roles who were the spiritual leaders of the tribe. The ones who were seers, alchemists, astronomers, shamans, magicians, teachers of the esoteric and the exoteric, philosophers, midwives, herbalists, peacemakers, law keepers. These were the priestesses of old, and they all came from the noble serpent families. This was before old Patriarchal religions were invented. It was long before some of the teachings were taken by eagles and turned into religions and cults..."

Addition: I should have added that the main figure within this Celtic/Gnostic international movement is Tau Tia L Douglass of the UK, who narrated the above video.
