Why Great Bear coaching? Seven stars of the Brythonic faery king. Seven stars in the Corona of stars around the goddess of my ancestor’s Arianhrod, the river that flows past my original home, a pathway of the dead, flows near seven villages which correspond to the bear named Arthur who now dwells in Annwyn. These are the root the dead take to the stars buried in the earth and I have helped many hundreds of them get there.
Seven stars for the Greek counterpart of Arianhrod, Ariadne, partner of Dionysus, seven stars the bear sacred to Artemis goddess of the wild. Seven stars for Mithras-Helios, God with lightning in his eyes. The associations with the bear are much more than this: I was told by the bear themselves that: “Your real name is Seven Stars”
