Notes for The Story of Jasmine continue:
Heta* discovered the King of UR still grieving over the death of his first Queen two years before. She studies his habits and the places he frequents.
Erlkyng** looked for powerful nodes upon the land within the forest where the King frequently hunted. He found a natural circle where several land energy lines crossed. At the center was an opening to a crystal cave in the shape of a vesica pisces.
They charted the skies, looking for the most auspicious alignments of planets and stars. They used the alignments of the land and the sky to increase their magical current.

*The name Heta generally means Love. Obviously, Heta is the Wyrd woman who is assisting Erlkyng magically.
**Erlkönig (lit. “alder-king”) is a name used in German Romanticism for the figure of a spirit or “king of the fairies.” I did not know this derivation at the time of the writing. Researching further, I discover that “Erlking” is a malicious spirit who carries away small children to their deaths, but I contend, Erlkyng is not Erlking.
Note: Today, I know more about the science of how land energies geomantically associate with sky alignments and find it curious that I would mention a vesica pisces, which is easily one of the most profound geometrical images of ancient and modern times.
The vesica pisces geometry (shown above) is basically formed from the intersection of two, overlapping spheres. Symbolically, it represents the union of Heaven and Earth, the merging of God and Goddess. The vesica pisces is also the vagina of the female goddess, the first pattern at the basis of all trigonometric configurations, square roots and harmonic dimensions. How curious.
