The Ancient And The Awesome

 Reddish marble carved votive relief of the Moon Goddess Selene: a female bust to the front in an arched niche, draped in a sleeved chiton, and with her hair parted in the middle and brought down over her ears, nose now missing, surrounded by a crescent on her head, seven stars in the field around and the signs of the zodiac in low relief; inscribed beneath with an unintelligible GnosticRead More…

Growth Incognito

“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before.Read More…

Why Ouija Boards Are Non Us…

Blame the Full Moon in Scorpio and/or Pluto operating without the jangling input of Uranus but dialogue this weekend is fraught. Interesting for sure, deep and relevant…but full ON.

He spent most of his life suicidally depressed, which, if you look at his chart, you just think ouch and get it. But then he became a philosopher of great wisdom. And his philosophy is super-Cap — all about how to live your life and experience things, how to beRead More…

Beth Moon’s Diamond Nights

As night falls over the Makgadigadi Pans, large trees stand starkly against the horizon, leafless branches reach for the light. As the sun sinks lower, the sky drains of all color until just red remains. On the opposite side of the sky, Earth’s shadow is rising, bringing a curtain of indigo and the promise of a clear night. Science and art merge as a myriad of stars burn fiercely overhead,Read More…
