To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man or woman. We make ourselves into one or the other.
Carlos Castaneda was a Capricorn. He probably did more to popularize Shamanic schizz in his day than anyone, yes? I always thought Sagittarius.
And David Lynch, currently zooming around performing the very Pluto in Capricorn task of documenting abandoned factories (farewell manufacturing actual things, hello quantitative easing), is not an Aquarius but a Capricorn. And Mercury a.k.a Hermes is far more than just the Messenger God, as we so often short-hand it (Mercury is Hermaphrodite); Mercury mediates between worlds, Mercury is the original Trickster. The Coyote. Wind. Thought.
Mercury – currently mixed up with the Full Moon & evoking a new dimension of knowledge for those open to it. You don’t have to cast spells. The world IS a spell and you already have magic in the very fabric of your soul. “Junk D.N.A.” is as pointless a term as “Dark Matter.” Scientists have no uses for enchantment, probably some (understandable) hangover from the Inquisition.
