A journey from modern Iraq back into ancient wisdom and modern science

This article was originally posted in 2009.  Astrologer connecting the Yezidi, a Kurdish people on the border of Syria and Iraq, back to the , a collection of Arabic texts that was widely used by mages during the Renaissance period.  He then draws connections back to the Sabians of Harran, adding a layer of interest to  on the Sabian Symbols,

He then goes back to Hermes Trismegistus, a fascinating quasi-mythological figure who appears to combine the Greek Hermes with the Egyptian Thoth, leading many (including myself) to postulate that perhaps those two were actually the same being – perhaps an Atlantean survivor who served as the messenger of ancient wisdom (Hermes and Thoth are both gods of knowledge and magic).  The saying “as above, so below” is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus – the Thrice Great.

From Dave’s article:

The dictum “as above, so below” describes the connection between the core level of reality experienced by humans and the movements of the heavenly bodies. In contemporary astrology, it is generally thought that planetary phenomena cause or are reflected in events on Earth. However, the magical tradition takes this concept one step further by harnessing or cocreating with the planetary phenomena. Many hermeticists feel that these acts even comprise a spiritual practice because by working with the planets, they come closer to “the one” (Warnock “Hermetic Gnosis).

This ancient magical practice of working with the energy of the planets in an alchemical process rather than in a relationship where a dependency on one’s fate is created.  Dave concludes,

Approaching the planets as forces which can be worked with and embodied, the mage is in a position of active engagement with the solar […]

The astrology of Baby Sussex

Embed from Getty Images

And a baby was born unto Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the world celebrated.  I’ve made no secret of my unabashed admiration for Meghan and happiness at her marriage to Prince Harry, and was excited to look at the baby’s astrological chart.

Baby Sussex (as of the time of this posting a name had still not yet chosen) has a pretty exceptional chart.  Born just after the New Moon in Taurus, he has the Sun at 15 degrees Taurus which is a power point in the zodiacal reference, being halfway between the summer and winter solstices.  These midpoints of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio) have long been known to be significant and have been referenced in art and literature from ancient times (the Bull, the Lion, the Man, the Eagle) including the Book of Revelation.  He is a Double Taurus, with the Sun is rising in the chart just after the Taurus ascendant.  When the Sun and ascendant are in the same sign, the outward persona (ascendant) and the inner Self (Sun) are well integrated and there may be less work to do on a personality level than someone who has those elements in very different signs.

Taurus desires comfort and peace; it is well known for its stubborn nature, but those fixed qualities also bestow an ability to persevere in the face of great obstacles.  Its main driver is towards equanimity and the ease and well-being offered through the accumulation of wealth and assets.

This chart also has a strong Gemini component in the first house of personal identity with the Moon at the very first degree of Gemini.  Gemini follows Taurus and reacts […]

Planetary news this week! Astrological forecast for May 6-13, 2019

astrology forecast
Now that the New Moon in Taurus has calmed things down somewhat, we can turn our attention to other matters.  Mercury, the messenger planet, moves into Taurus on May 6th and continues the trend towards a more peaceful environment.

This will help the disruption caused by a stressful opposition between Mars (aggression) which is creating a lot of bombastic rhetoric while in Gemini, to Jupiter (expansion) which is in Sagittarius where it tends to be optimistic but also somewhat self-righteous.  So there is a lot of righteous (Jupiter) anger (Mars) floating around for a couple of days.  Having Mercury in Taurus now instead of fiery Aries will certainly help, but between May 6 and May 8th it might be a good idea to avoid unnecessary arguments which simply serve to blow off steam.

Between the 9th and the 13th of May we mostly encounter mild planetary movements that serve only to support and facilitate, except on the 9th a stressful Venus/Pluto aspect could bring up some power issues in our interactions with others.  This lasts only a day or so and should be pretty mild.

Of course if your own chart is undergoing a stressful attack from one of the heavier planets, that stronger influence will take precedence over the faster moving cycles.

Video coming out later today!

The Taurus New Moon: Settling into the peace space

The New Moon on May 4th is in the sign of Taurus.  The symbol for Taurus is the bull – wise, placid but powerful, stable, slow to anger, the bull is a majestic symbol of peacefulness in the heart of strength.  Like the bull, under the influence of Taurus we seek experiences which will help us to find that sense of equanimity and comfort.  We nestle into cozy spaces and hunger for pleasure that will be truly satisfying.  No frankenfood will do under the Taurean influence, we must have fine wines and the best dark chocolates, food with pleasing colors and textures.  We wrap ourselves in natural fabrics and enjoy the scents of flowers.

The New Moon is, of course, the beginning of a new lunar cycle.  Over the past few months we’ve had a confusing retrograde period of Mercury, and an intense breakdown period of Saturn and Pluto which is just beginning to wane.   With the Taurus New Moon, we are finally able to connect more completely with the physical – settle into our bodies, walk barefoot on the earth, hug a tree, sit quietly and just experience the very fact that we are alive.

Not all of the planets are supportive of the slowing down and smelling the roses – we still have the mutual reception of Mercury in Aries, ruled by Mars, and Mars in Gemini, ruled by Mercury – firing up the engines of the brain and making it difficult to relax.  We still have a potentially challenging aspect (a T-square) involving Mercury (mind), Mars (action) and Jupiter (expansion) that demands action (Mars/Jupiter) yet blurs our sight to the point where we are unable to see clearly (Neptune).   But none of that matters right now […]

Astrological forecast for the week of May 1-8, 2019

Apologies to my readers who prefer words to video – after spending two hours writing the May Planetary Illuminations report, the whole report was lost into the Dark Web somewhere (no doubt due to user error!).  So I’m preserving my writing energy for the rewrite, but offer the forecast here in video format for you to enjoy.
