Intaglio with Tauroctony from The Met

This small magical jasper gem shows Sol in a quadrigra on the recto and Mithras as a bull slayer on the verso.

 
Such a beautiful stone! Curios about how it was set, in gold, silver or bronze?

Souls enter Cancer and follow the cycle of the moon passing in front of the altar. They continue to the right and exit in Sagittarius where they are greeted by a piper. In the South-East, pure souls enter Capricorn and follow the cycle of the sun to exit into Gemini and migrate towards the gods. the mithraeum is oriented upside down, west-east. But with Taurus in the North and Scorpio in the South, the Zodiac is almost in normal position, only shifted by two signs.The figure on the left runs with arms raised towards Gemini. It is a soul in the cycle of resurrection which will ascend to Heaven.

Hi, I’m a newly converted Greco-Roman pagan who’s deeply interested in Mithraism. Have no idea if I’m in the right place though!

 
Veronica, I surfed onto your profile and would like to assure you that Mithras welcomes everyone. I frankly know of more women worshiping than men... myself included. Feel free to message me if you would like.
 
Dear Veronica, as a woman you cannot attend the ceremonies in the mithraeum. But you can help prepare the feast. You also have a soul, like the slaves. You can therefore hope to ascend to the heavens through the solar cycle, and you will be admitted into Capricorn at the winter solstice. Then your soul will be beautified and purified for six months and it will come out into Gemini and escape from earthly influence to ascend among the gods and goddesses. But if your soul has led an impure life, if you have lacked fervor and courage, if you have not endured your condition and if you have been selfish or dishonest, then you will ascend to the sky towards Saturn, then towards the Moon where you will be prepared to return to Earth. In cancer your soul will be admitted, and you will go down the days. your soul will become heavy and charged with humidity and it will come out on the eve of the winter solstice, in Sagittarius. She wandered among the Manes before integrating a fetus and being reincarnated.
 
Welcome Veronica 💫
