The next post in my Houses & people series is going to be the 12th House!
For an early concept of the genre, look no further than Terence McKenna.
“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking.
That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”

And, if you’re having a twelfth house transit like I am (Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto), your research list or latest hobbies probably look like my bookmarks, below. Also, in case you did not see, Dan Brown – the DaVinci Code author – has made 3,500 Occult Manuscripts available online.
He has no publicly available birthtime BUT he’s Cancerian (Sun conjunct North Node at Zero Cancer) with Mars, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini. His unexpectedly huge bestseller was published just as Uranus went into Pisces in March 2003. His first book – Angels and Demons – with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Taurus. He knows his astro, clearly. I think he’s actually a Ninth House person.
He cops a lot of criticism but I love how his books drew esoteric topics into the mainstream. Nobody wanted to hear my thoughts on pentagrams before Dan. Anyway, here are my current research bookmarks FYI. Thoughts?
