We are blessed to have had some rain last night and this morning here in Southern California and when I see rain I think of the lovely text and images I found at this blog that connects me to the notion that the rain represents the Anunakki Goddess Inanna/Ishtars tears.
“The origins of the Goddess Ishtar lay in ancient Sumerian culture, in the Mesopotamian region of the Middle East.
Sumer is now modern day Iraq.
This song is in Arabic. Ishtar is hurt that humanity has not remembered Her. Because the world has forgotten
that She is a symbol of divine love, it has descended into chaos and darkness.
The singer (Enaanaa) is calling Ishtar’s sons to stop the wars and strife that have plagued the Middle East and
The translation of the lyrics are as follows:-
I thought the look in your eyes, would guard my eyes
I thought your pure heart, would be happy to find me again
And the veins in your hands, I thought,
They would be the ink of my scriptures
And your laughter of your heart would be the gift
And the new breath in my sighs
I took the ancient incense of the ages from you,
I blessed you in my prayers
I honoured you with the symbol of kings
And you took hope from my words
I placed seven stars on your shoulders
And you became the sun in my skies,
And I thought
You and your brothers, would prepare for my resurrection
I called you with a voice of a mother,
And I said, son, don’t abandon me
I’m hurting and you are far
Don’t deprive me of your breath
I called you with the voice of Ishtar
And I thought you may recognize me from my voice
But you thought I was just a dream
And when you woke up
You did not remember me
“Inanna/ Ishtar is the consort or husband of Tammuz ( sum.: Dumuzi), river god of Euphrates and Tigris, who was meanwhile also her son and her brother. When the world began, Tammuz (faithful son) came together with Ishtar in the world. She bore him, she made love with him and she remained a virgin. When Tammuz died in the summer and all vegetation died with him, Ishtar was looking for him all over the world. She finally found him in the underworld and brought him back to life (see Celtic believe). Tammuz was reborn and the vegetation could flourish again. Then the ritual-festival of the “Holy Marriage” was celebrated at the time of the autumn equinox, when in the Near-East the first rain fell again.
For the assyrian people she was mainly a war goddess (Lioness of the battle), but also the love and the sexual life belonged to her realm of influence. Moreover she was the Goddess of justice and healing.”
I added a photo below that a friend of mine, Paul Mason created using my Star Trek photo from 1967 because all women living today have the Anunakki Ancient Alien Goddesses mtDNA
and therefore I believe we are all siSTARS and therefore Ancient Alien Goddesses under the skin worthy of an exalted status!
It is only our belief systems that separate us and cause us to see ourselves as separate. The putting down of the Goddess and all women was part of the Anunakki patriarchal God Enlil and his son’s oppressive plan.
In oneness we can create the world we want for ourselves and others to live in.
Other names for Inanna/Ishtar however note many of the words that are derogatory to us today such as prostitute or promiscuous had different meanings to these people as lovemaking or Hieros Gamos or Tantric lovemaking was considered a sacred act that would elevate and be of benefit to entire communities. Priestesses who engaged in these practices were revered not demonized..that was the work of Patriarchy who preferred war and domination to love and love making:

Also please note in ancient texts when the word virgin is used it really meant young unmarried woman and had nothing to do with an intact hymen. The importance of this bit of tissue was a far more recent invention to further alienate women who are born with pure love in their hearts..our gift from the Creatrix Goddess Mother Ninmah/Ninhursag with her partners, half brother Enki and his son Nigishzidda whose mother was Ereshkigal Goddess of the underworld who was a bloodline Anunakki Goddess.
