Queen of Heaven was a title given to a number of ancient sky goddesses in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East, in particular Anat, Isis, Innana, Astarte, Hera and possibly Asherah (by the prophet Jeremiah). Elsewhere, Nordic Frigg also bore this title. In Greco-Roman times Hera, and her Roman aspect Juno bore this title. Forms and content of worship varied. In modern times, the title Queen of Heaven is used by Catholics and Orthodox Christians for Mary.
Sumer Inanna was hailed as "Queen of Heaven" in the 3rd millennium BC. In Akkad to the north, she was worshipped later as Ishtar. In the Sumerian Descent of Inanna, when Inanna is challenged at the outermost gates of the underworld, she replies
I am Inanna, Queen of Heaven,
On my way to the East.
Her cult was deeply embedded in Mesopotamia and among the Canaanites to the west.

14th degree is where a mortal doing battle for the forces he deems good are met with a strong resistance from his own camp. Aka a traitor to the cause battling the mortal.
It comes in the guise of help and/or peace. Ex: my mother intervened in the melee to stop the fight from ensuing and erupting into disaster.
This where the apron comes in. As in wolf in sheep's clothing. Lambskin. This traitor!
It's childsplay... The name of the game is "freeze tag".
You must not let them touch you and stop you.
13th degree is wherein you find yourself having to stand your ground against your adversary. It leads to fourteenth.
But for the most part... It is do not back down!
The seven Scorpions are Noah's laws...
1) Take a chance!
2) Meet me half way!
3) Go a little bit further!
4) Go All the way!
5) Keep on going!
6) Endure to the end!
7) Don't give up!
Isis is mother to osiris.
He was ra's first born. Destined to rule. But set... Isis' brother devoured osiris' ka.
He would not stand up to set. The body was broken down into 14 pieces.
1 for each degree.
Isis went back to raise and tricked him. She put a snake on his throne.
He sat on it and was bitten. Fire consumed him and he cried out .
Isis agreed to save him if he but give her another son. So under those circumstances...rather agreed. She cured him and was blessed with hours.
He grew up and did battle with set. He killed set. But lost the right eye. Eye of good.
Since then hours gives evil eye to all who betray themselves to evil.
The evil eye is 33. Grand inspector General.
General as in second in command. Inspector as in evil eye watching. Grand as in seat at the right hand of God. But mostly just a ritual.
My babbling is for you.... laugh a lot.

ISIS is really ISIL since the literal translation is Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. They don't refer to themselves as ISIS. That is just a Western application and obsession with making group names into acronyms.
..like those major corporations who "somehow" manage to snag a 555 street address
