  • Astrological Anxiety (2)

    Astrological Anxiety (2)

    The upshot of this is that some people are neither cut out for astrology – be they practitioners, students, or clients. In such instances, they ought to leave astrology alone.

  • The Daemon of Carl Jung

    In Plato’s Republic(The Myth of Ur), souls cue up to choose their next life and are assigned a daemon – an overseer for that life. In classic astrology, daemon could be determined using one’s natal chart and as the result, it was incumbent upon the individual to establish contact with (or invoke) his or her […]

  • Elizabethan Protestantism – every day life in the realm

    The moderate Protestantism of Elizabeth I was a compromise not only between the Protestant and Catholic faiths but also between the various competing factions in the Protestant movement (i.e. Calvin vs. Luther and Zwingli). During her long reign, Elizabeth’s religious policy made life easier for some and harder for others but, overall, at least initially, […]

  • Esoteric Dilemmas

    In some esoteric circles, the MC/IC (Mid-heaven/Imum Coeli) axis depicts your spiritual descent down the ladder from the stars and into bodily incarnation.[1] The idea is that before birth, you were given a daemon that selects the pattern that you are to live out on earth. [2] Soul, then, is the mediating consciousness between body […]

  • Gateways of the Soul – The Seven Seals or Planets

    Incarnation is a lifetime process during which my soul travels downwards through the chakras from the Sun to Saturn and back up again: Down: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Up: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Venus, Mercury, and Sun. I engage (or not) with this process with every thought, decision, and action that […]

  • Ms D and Mr B – it’s all about Communication

    Composite Moon suggests how honestly you express your emotions with each other – and with Composite Jupiter in trine (easy aspect) this probably goes well. The sympathy you share with each other will likely have a positive, morally uplifting effect for both – optimism goes a long way toward making everything better.

  • Find your Personal Path to Enlightenment through your Part of Daemon

    The more you’re pushed in the material world, the more likely you are to turn to your Part of Daemon for in essence, it encompasses your entire philosophy (tenets) about life.

  • Looking for God Through Astrology

    Remember that every planet represented in your chart, was once a god or goddess in his or her own right.

  • And all you wanted was a good ghost story…

    Instead of fearing loss of meaning as did our forefathers, post-moderns fear loss of touch with reality. Makes perfect sense in today’s world where entertainment, information, and communication technologies provide experiences more intense – and gratifying – than RL or ‘real life’.

  • Literary Criticism / passage from Winterson’s ‘The Passion’ – how did I do?

    With this example of intertextuality, our spiritual selves are challenged to rise above the negativity of the material world to be fully realised in the bosom of God. By referencing the Bible (Matthew 14:22-33), Winterson cleverly triggers brand awareness. God is a powerful spin-doctor.
