One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

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 »
I was speaking with a friend recently about the Knoxville Unitarian Church shooting that took place July 27, 2008. She was actually at the church on that dreadful day, when Jim David Adkisson sneaked in with a 12-guage shotgun in a guitar case during a youth performance of Annie. As I am working on a project to determine whether mass murderers and serial killers can be identified using advanced metaphysical techniques, I was intrigued to take a closer look at Adkisson.
I use Hermetic astrology, combined with numerology and statistics, to determine whether a person has any significant mental illness or a propensity to kill. One of my first discoveries was that serial killers (those who kill over and over) have very discordant natal charts whereas mass murderers (those who kill more than one person on one single occasion) seem to have harmonious natal charts. This discovery alone could enable us to determine whether a potential killer would be a mass murderer or a serial killer. There are also many other fascinating findings that I won’t go into right now. However, I do want to explore the case of Adkisson. Read the rest of this entry »
