Happy January 2021! For this month’s newsletter, I’m going to meditate on & discuss the origins of January, & as a bonus connect it to a secret health knowledge I discovered: the magic of Hawthorne.

According to my research, the month of January is named after the Roman God “Janus”.
Janus is depicted as a two-faced (and sometimes four-faced) man looking both forwards & backwards at the same time.
The New Year seems like the perfect time to look both forward to the rest of the year, and also reflect back upon the previous year. So the imagery of Janus as a symbol of January makes sense to me and I like it.
I came across some interesting information which I think my readers will find entertaining, informative & enlightening so thanyou for reading & subscribing to the iMedDo newsletters.
ROMANISMS IN CALENDRICAL MONTHS
After detoxing & opening my third eye with iodine, purifying my body & mind of infection & toxins with colloidal silver & colloidal gold used in a system, I’ve become more acutely aware of the seasons and of time.
Looking back on 2020, I started to become aware of different ways of measuring time than just the Roman solar calendar I’m used to and in particular became aware of older lunar & lunar-solar calendars such as those used by the Norse and by the Asian calendar.
There are many different interesting calendars in the world, the Mayan calendar in particular has been fun, but in the Western culture by far the Roman calendar which is a solar calendar with 12 months is the most used and we can see the most influence in names of the months some of which are named for Roman gods and emperors:
Months: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November December.
Obvious Romanisms: January for Roman God Janus, March for month when Roman soldiers would March to war, June for Roman Goddess Juno, July for Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, August for Roman Emperor Augustus Caesar, and Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec named after Roman numbers 7,8,9,10 even though refers to 9,10,11,12th month.
It’s not as clear to me yet where the names February, April and May come from (possibly February from Roman word Fabia for beans?) but I’m not going to worry about that for now as I’m focusing on January and Roman God Janus for this episode. Regardless, I think you can agree that there is a decidedly Roman influence on the names of the months as 2 are obviously named for Roman Gods (January & June) and 2 are named for Roman emperors (July & August) who believed themselves to be Gods =).
ORIGINS OF JANUARY BY DRBENGO
When I started researching this article I got a strong gut feeling that the origin of January had something to do with the Carthaginian War (Punic War) between Rome and Carthage.
All the information I’ve found supports my theory and the story is pretty bizarre, interesting and enlightening, so if you are meditating on time and time-travel, you at some point might want to mediate on the origin of the months starting with the first month of January.
THE FIRST MONTH WAS NAMED AFTER THE NUMBER ONE: UNO = JUNO
Although the Carthaginian calendar is lost as far as I known, we can assume it may have been very similar to the Roman calendar before the Punic War, and I assume that both Rome and Carthage may have called the first month as Juno or Uno for the number one not January for Janus.
This is supported by a Roman farmer’s almanac that was found that confirms that January was known for the Mother Goddess Juno.
REFERENCE: H.H. Scullard, Festivals and Ceremonies of the Roman Republic (Cornell University Press, 1981), p. 51.
An important point I want you to notice is that much of what is now the country of Spain was once part of the Carthaginian empire, so the “Romance” language of the Spaniards is more Carthaginian than you might have realized.
The word “uno” means “one” in Spanish. Spain was part of the old Carthaginian empire and there is even the town of Cartagena in SE Spain to this day.
It makes complete sense that the name for the first month would be named after the Goddess whose name was “One”.
Just as “Uno” still means “One” in Spain/Spanish language to this day, what if before the Punic Wars Juno was the name for the month of January.
Notice the similarity between the word for the Mother Goddess “Juno” and the Spanish word for “One” Uno. JUNO = UNO.
ROMANS CHANGED CALENDAR TO BE DIFFERENT FROM CARTHAGE AFTER WAR
So, my theory which is supported by both the Roman farmer’s almanac and by Spanish-Carthegenian linguistics is that the first month of the year for the Romans was original Juno/UNO not January.
But something happened to make the Romans rename the first month to January & the creation of a new God Janus and a demotion of the Mother Goddess from the first month to the sixth month. The Romans must have feared erasing Juno completely as the month of June is still used to this day but they preferred to have a male God as the first month instead of the Mother Goddess (out of spite for the Carthaginians after war with them I assume).
PUNIC WAR & THE CREATION OF JANUS
If you have never studied Roman history or the Punic Wars between Rome & Carthage, here is a great cartoon video which is very entertaining & educational on the Punic Wars.
There are three of them waged from 264 to 146 BC but the first Punic War from 264 BC to 241 BC is the one I want to focus on in relation to origins of January.
23 years of war, wow, you can imagine the hatred that must have developed between the empires.
Around the time of the end of the First Punic War we know that the Romans changed their calendar.
I think it was at this time that the first month was renamed January for a newly created Roman God called Janus.
Janus is a Roman God with no Greek equivalent.
This indicates to me that Janus was a completely Roman invention.
I think that Janus was invented around the time of the end of the first Punic War but was then given a mythological (propaganda) history to have always been around since the founding of Rome.
So I would argue that Janus was invented to Replace Juno as the first month around 241 BC to Spite the Carthaginian calendar with a new Roman only calendar.
This is supported by the tradition that Janus quadrifrons (Four faced Janus) was brought from Falerii in 241 BC.
This coincides exactly with the end of the first Punic War (241 BC).
It appears to me that then there was spun a cover story claiming Janus had always been the first month since the time of Rome’s founding 500 years earlier.
JANUS JANUARY COVER STORY & THE 500 YEAR COVERUP
We are told that the months of January & February were added to the Roman calendar by Numa the legendary (mythological?) second king of Rome who succeeded Romulus & reigned circa 715-673 BC.
If true this would mean that the Roman God Janus and the name for the first month in the Roman calendar of January was very old far predating the Punic War.
I don’t believe it. I suspect that the Roman calendar was changed to add in January only in 241 BC after the Punic War not way back in 715 BC as the Romans were told to believe.
The Legendary Second King of Rome Numa Pompilius who supposedly created the Roman Calendar was buried with his books then dug up and books found 500 years later and then the books were examined by the Senate and the books BURNED lol.
“By tradition, Numa promulgated a calendar reform, which divided the year into twelve months according to the lunar course, but adjusted to be in accordance with the solstitial revolution. It was during this time that the months of January and February were introduced. Numa also made the distinction of the days being either profane or sacred.”
By “tradition” like by “propaganda” lol.
By a funny quirk of history, Numa was buried with his books which supposedly included his books related to his calendar creation.
“According to Plutarch, these books were recovered some four hundred years later (in reality almost five hundred years, i. e. in 181 BC according to Livy 40:29:3-14) at the occasion of a natural accident that exposed the tomb. They were examined by the Senate, deemed to be inappropriate for disclosure to the people, and burned. Dionysius of Halicarnassus hints that they were actually kept as a very close secret by the pontifices.”
So let me recap what I think happened.
After the Punic War in 241 BC Rome changed their calendar to make January named after a new or formerly obscure Roman only God named Janus to replace a month that was possibly named Juno/Uno.
I suspect the Romans may have completely fabricated the God Janus as well as the story about the legendary king Numa creating the month January 500 years earlier.
Later in 181 BC the tomb of Numa was found containing the original calendar book which exposed the fraud and the books were burned to keep the fraudulent mythological history of the month of January & the Roman God Janus having replaced Uno/Juno more recently.
Wow a Roman coverup of the origins of the month of January. That’s bonkers, but appears to be the case.
Looking beyond the propaganda, I see that January was originally Uno/Juno and was changed to Janus and January after the Romans wanted to distance their calendar from the Carthaginian calendar after the first Punic War circa 241 BC.
JANUS & JANA (DIANA)
If you accept my theory about the month of January is correct then you can also believe that just because the Roman Senate used propaganda to change the name of a month by naming after a new God Janus that it would take generations to convince the Roman people of the change and that the people would remember that the new January is still sacred to the goddess Juno by their prior traditions and that there would have to be a slow sex change process involving both the new God and the old Goddess to slowly phase out the Goddess.
This confusion over gender identity resulting in a Janus and a Jana being a male and female version of the same deity or as twin deities where each presides over the same thing (months 1 & 6):
“According to Macrobius who cites Nigidius Figulus and Cicero, Janus and Jana (Diana) are a pair of divinities, worshipped as Apollo or the sun and moon, whence Janus received sacrifices before all the others, because through him is apparent the way of access to the desired deity.”
Because Macrobious was writing in 400 AD and was quoting people from circa 40-50 BC, it makes sense that even 200 years later after the January coverup c240 BC that there would be confusion between a male and a female Janus vs Jana as Jana (Diana/Uno/Juno) was replaced by Janus after the Punic War as I believe and thus you would expect Romans generations later to remember that or at least think of 2 different male & female aspects now as Microbus said they did.
“A similar solar interpretation [to Macrobious] has been offered by A. Audin who interprets the god [Janus] as the issue of a long process of development, starting with the Sumeric cultures, from the two solar pillars located on the eastern side of temples, each of them marking the direction of the rising sun at the dates of the two solstices: the southeastern corresponding to the Winter and the northeastern to the Summer solstice. These two pillars would be at the origin of the theology of the divine twins, one of whom is mortal (related to the NE pillar, nearest the Northern region where the sun does not shine) and the other is immortal (related to the SE pillar and the Southern region where the sun always shines). Later these iconographic models evolved in the Middle East and Egypt into a single column representing two torsos and finally a single body with two heads looking at opposite directions.”
SYNCRETIC JANUARY BY DRBENGO
Okay so the origins of the month of January seem to be rather complex. The name and God Janus could be a total Roman fabrication after the first Punic War as I’m inclined to believe, or it could have really been created by the legendary second king of Rome with early adoption of the Roman God Janus or it could be a long amalgamation of Sumerian dual solar pillars as A. Audin suggests. But I don’t think so.
If Janus was a long amalgamation of Sumeric cultures there should be a plethora of Gods like Janus and the lack of a Greek equivalent of Janus is highly suspicious and indicates that Janus was invented by the Romans after their ancient Greek origins.
Also we know the Romans were messing with their calendar in 241 BC and they had a MOTIVE to remove the beloved Carthaginian Goddess from the number one month slot and to replace with a new Roman God.
What it comes down to is the antiquity of the God Janus. Was he invented in 241 BC or was he really invented in 715 BC by Numa or was he around before that in other form as some obscure God in a prior culture (no evidence for that).
Unlike Janus, Jana/Diana/Uno/Juno the Mother Goddess concept goes back to the beginnings of human pre-history and about her I known much more and keep discovering more.
Whereas Janus other than having two heads I knew nothing about him prior to writing this article, wheres Jana has been talking to me for the past 6 years at least since I’ve started meditating with NeuIodine, NeuSilver & NeuGold.
TIME TO BLOW THE MIND
Every month I strive to uncover secret, lost and enlightening information. This month has been not different upon meditating on Janus I uncovered something secret which I think many people especially Christians and Roman Catholic Christians in particular will find interesting.
What I discovered is … drumroll please ….
The Roman God Janus is the Same as the Roman Catholic Saint Peter.
JANUS = PETER
Both Janus and Peter are represented as having the keys to the gates of heaven. The Roman catholic Peter is from the Roman God Janus. It’s not that hard to see it if you study. I think this is a pretty big and interesting discovery and I suspect something that few people alive until myself and anyone reading this would know.
JANUS & PETER ARE A SCAM
I don’t want to start a fight so everyone do your own research and believe as you will, but as for me I see both Janus and Peter being a scam which was originally the Mother Goddess who is not to me a scam at all. Perhaps I’m more Carthaginian than Roman in my DNA but the the Mother Goddess speaks to me, and I’ve never heard a peep out of this Janus fellow nor this Peter fellow. Instead I get Goddess knowledge in spades.
SECRET GODDESS KNOWLEDGE
While meditating on Janus, and upon discovering that Janus is Peter it solidified an older meditation that I had on the back burner in my mind concerning the etymology of the name of CLEOPATRA.
Patra = ? Either Father (Pater) or Rock (Petra).
Peter is associate with being the “Rock”
Clearing up the missing puzzle piece for me.
Cleopatra means: Triple Lion Rock.
The rock is the philosopher’s stone which is the Pineal brain anatomy. When the Romans were talking about having to pray to Janus first before they could talk to the other Gods they were talking about using their pineal. Previous to that in Greek & Phoneician-Carthegians the pineal was considered to the Goddess Sophia, the Pearl of Wisdom
Looking back on 2020, I think my greatest accomplishment was writing the quite possibly the best discussion of the pineal ever created.
If you missed it please go back and read my article Third Eye Detox from JANUARY, 2020 and it is very fitting that you read it now in JANUARY 2021 as way to look both forward and backwards like Janus, by connecting with Jana/Juno/Uno, your own brain in Goddess form that must be connected with first before you can open the gates of heaven.
BLESSING FOR 2021
May you find your pearl of wisdom and unlock enlightenment in the New Year. Happy New Years!
BONUS SECTION: MAGICAL PLANT HAWTHORNE
While researching the Roman God of January Janus, I ran into some interesting obscure Roman Gods & Goddesses one of which really caught my eye as had some very interesting ancient medicinal information.
Whereas Janus is the God of Doors, (originally Juno the Goddess of the Ultimate Door (Vagina, which links reincarnated souls to the heavens), the Romans had another doorway related Goddess called Carna or Cardea related to the door hinge.
Related to flesh and to the heart (and obvious [to me] connection to Egyptian goddess Ammit who is Tawaret in angry form) the Goddess Cardea was associated with a medical recipe of hanging Hawthorne on the doorway of the house.
Why? To keep out blood sucking vampires!
I interpret this as a mosquito repellant with potentially anti-malarial properties.
Why is this important? Because I think the Covid-19 Plandemic is in part a malaria bioweapon as evidenced that it can be readily treated with anti-malarials iodine, quinine (hydroxycloroquine) and ivermectin.
While meditating on January and Janus it took me back to the Mother Goddess Juno in Heart Form as a Goddess of Health (Cardea) and she (or me as my own pineal connecting me to knowledge) bestowed me of a great gift of yet another way to treat malaria with the Hawthorne plant.
According to a site that sells Hawthorne Leaf Extract:
Hawthorne is also known as thornapple, whitethorn, May-tree, and hawberry, hawthorn has been used for thousands of years to support cardiovascular function. It is also a natural antioxidant that protects the body from damaging free radicals
If you look up the Hawthorne (plant Genus Crataegus, you will see that saying it has thousands of years of usage is an understatement.
Associated with faeries. Celtic legends that it heals the broken heart. Central in many European legends and myths. Kills Vampires! (I interpret as having anti-mosquito, and possibly other anti-blood sucking bug properties (possibly anti-tick and anti-lyme worth exploring) but overall sounds like a powerful anti-oxidant that would be beneficial for heart protection when iron become loose in the blood (as in coronavirus iron released from hemoglobin theory). IS LITERALLY THE TREE BELIEVED TO BE THE CROWN OF THORNS OF JESUS! Represents hope. Blooms in winter and spring and makes berries that keep people from starving in the winter!
DRUID HEALING TREES
“Hawthorn trees are often found beside clootie wells; at these types of holy wells, they are sometimes known as rag trees, for the strips of cloth which are tied to them as part of healing rituals. ‘When all fruit fails, welcome haws’ was once a common expression in Ireland.”
There is so much more I could say about January, Janus, Juno, Cardea and Hawthorne, but I’m going to stop here as it’s not what I say but rather what you read in between the lines & discover in your our own meditation with detoxed pineal. Join me in meditating on health & healing looking forwards to 2021 with the wisdom gained from looking back on 2020. Happy New Years!
