The Sun moved into the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer, on November 22nd and will remain there until December 21st. Sagittarius is a mutable (dual-natured) and masculine energy sign ruled by the element of Fire. If we look at its symbols, we can begin to better understand those born this time of year.
The constellation Sagittarius is a centaur – half man, half horse. Sagittarians are often said to have a logical, philosophical side, along with a more earthy, fun-loving streak, which represents mankind’s struggle between his heavenly and animalistic natures. Its glyph (astrological symbol) is an arrow pointing upward, which is appropriate for a sign whose nature is to constantly learn and question everything!
If you’ve ever known a Sagittarian, you’ll have known someone who is adventurous and seeks to explore every part of their life. Unlike some of the other Sun signs, these people may want knowledge for its own sake, or to satisfy personal curiosity. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been an avid student of Edgar Cayce’s work since my youth. My advice to the younger generation, as well as newcomers of all ages who are interested in metaphysics and psychic phenomena: please read about Edgar Cayce. He is the most documented psychic in history. Study his material; much has been written about him.
Edgar Cayce was born in 1877 and came from a southern Protestant background. He studied the Bible and displayed psychic and mediumship abilities from a young age. He could talk to his deceased grandfather at the age of seven. He was lucky enough to have an open-minded mother, who recognized and nurtured her son’s special gifts. Read the rest of this entry »
In Kundalini Yoga, an ancient spiritual healing science, the fingers have deep spiritual meaning that coordinates with Astrology, emotions, body, mind and soul. We use the fingers to create mudras which trigger certain parts of the brain. Mudra is Sanskrit for “mark”, “seal”, or “gesture”. They are 10,000 year old hand gestures that help to heal and empower us.
Mudras can be found everywhere in daily life. Hand gestures are a part of every culture. Just like the spoken and written word, they can be used for positive or negative. Sign language, for example, is a form of mudras. The military uses hand gestures as a symbol of respect. Read the rest of this entry »
A number of clients have asked me how astrology can be used to determine a good time to have elective surgery. It does very much depend on the person’s natal chart, but here are some general guidelines for planning the timing of surgery and what to avoid.
When not to have surgery
1. Never when the Moon is in Virgo, Gemini, Pisces, or Sagittarius.
2. Never five days before, or after a Full Moon
3. Not when the Moon is void, of course, because it poses a high risk for complications. Read the rest of this entry »
Like everyone, I was so upset about the Boston bombings. More people killed and injured for no good reason at all. Sometimes, I think that the Spirit world must look down on us and ask “why are they killing each other?’
I spent some time recently studying Boston’s astrological chart. I was not surprised to see that when it is progressed according to hermetic principles, the recent event was perfectly foretold by the planets. In hermetic astrology, we work with major progressed aspects which we calculate from the natal chart. We see these major progressed aspects as major underlying circumstances (a little like kegs of dynamite). We see minor progressed aspects as fuses to these kegs of dynamite. Transiting planets act like matches, triggering events. Let’s take a look at what happened today. Read the rest of this entry »
