The Vow

Last weekend the HBO Series on the NXIVM Cult finished up. The Vow – Part One is a true crime documentary revealing the basic beliefs and horrifying behaviors within the “Executive Success Programs” originated by Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman. The famous attendees of these pricey self-development seminars could never have guessed that racketeering and sex trafficking was an inherent part of the highly polished NXIVM organizational plan.

The Vow is the promise made by a significant number of female followers to remain subservient to Keith Raniere for life, Meanwhile he was polyamorous and was not faithful to a one of them. Surprisingly it was the actress Allison Mack who directed the recruitment, collateral collection and branding ritual for the “female empowerment” DOS program. Short for “Dominus Obsequious Sororium”, this Latin phrase that reportedly translates to “Master over Slave Women”.

The NXIVM / DOS Brand

The closing moments of the Sunday show disclosed that The Vow – Part Two is planned for 2021 which covers the 2018 trial of the cofounders, Raniere and Salzman. Since we know they are now convicted felons and soon to sentenced, we can only wonder how a “secret sisterhood” of attractive and well-educated women allowed themselves to be financially exploited, physically branded and pimped out. But that is what exactly happened!


July 16, 1954



Keith Allen Raniere was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Virgo. This makes Venus the ruler of his INNER self and gave Mercury rulership of his OUTER self. As a young person the knowledge of his very high IQ became the focus of his Virgo personality. This mental activity allowed him to comprehend the basics of a number of belief systems and develop an unconcerned attitude with the rightness or wrongness of things. He also viewed himself as naturally superior to others, especially to females which are ruled primarily by Venus. He found that by using the exalted idea of “bettering the world” he had the ability to disarm his followers. Raniere was convicted of federal crimes including sex trafficking of children, conspiracy, and conspiracy to commit forced labor, all related to a secret society within NXIVM known as DOS, or The Vow. 

Nancy Salzman was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Cancer. This makes Venus the ruler of her INNER SELF and gives the Moon rulership of her OUTER SELF. The #64 VEN CAN Dayology Signature is very sensitive and open. This is obviously not always a good thing. We know that Salzman lied about her educational credentials to create a relevant background for herself. Her basic skill set includes Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming neither of which were designed to make people act against their best interests. Salzman met Raniere purchasing health related products on his wholesale supplement club. At her trial Salzman pled guilty of racketeering. She admitted to stealing email passwords of people who were thought to oppose NXIVM, and altering tapes of herself teaching courses.

Lauren Salzman was born on a Monday in the zodiac sign of Cancer . The Moon is the ruler of her INNER and OUTER SELVES, making her impressionable and able to impress others. ‘ She is the daughter of Nancy Salzman and recruited Alison Mack into NEXIUM cult. In time Lauren became Alison’s slave and complied to all the demands including having sex with Keith Raniere and supplying compromising materials to be used to blackmail her to prevent her from leaving. The Vow that she took was to be faithful to Raniere for all of her life. According to the New York Times Lauren Salzman had twenty-two women willing to be her slaves when she was arrested. Particularly deadly, Lauren admitted to keeping one of her slaves locked in a room for two years.

Alison Mack was born on a Thursday and in the zodiac sign of Leo. This makes Jupiter the ruler of her INNER Self and gave the Sun rulership of her OUTER self. People with this combination of energies are generally broad-minded and pleasure oriented. They expect good things to come their way and do poorly when they are disappointed. Supposedly it was Mack’s desire to stay on top of the Hollywood pile that responded Raniere’s promises of fulfillment and success. The NYT disclosed that Raniere helped Mack to design the brand that was used on their sex slaves and how it was applied to their bodies. People Magazine demonstrated that Mack was clearly a recruiter as it published Mack’s Tweets to Actress Emma Watson, who chose not to reply.

Our analysis ends with remarks that there seems to be Friday INNER or Spiritual connections between Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman, perhaps like a meeting of the minds. She and Keith structured their multi-level marketing company. Nancy Salzman and her daughter, Lauren Salzman have Cancer or nurturing OUTER or worldly connections.

UPDATE – Keith Raniere was convicted of racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child and sex trafficking. He was given a sentence of 120 years behind bars and a fine of $1, 750, 000. Lauren Salzman became the key witness testifying for four days. “Keith Raniere will not be able to victimize people anymore after today’s sentence and we’re very grateful for that,” said Seth DuCharme, Acting US Attorney for Eastern District of New York.
