Astrology 101: Intro to the Signs of the Zodiac

At one point in our history, the majority opinion was that the Sun orbits the Earth. And it’s not difficult to see why humankind might have gotten behind that belief, either: to the garden-variety civilian, it definitely looks and feels as if our own big, blue marble of Earth is standing still, while the Sun … More Astrology 101: Intro to the Signs of the Zodiac

Divide…then sub-divide…and keep repeating…

I came across this concept today called the “dwadasamsa.”  This happened during a discussion about certain astrological principles.  At first, I thought this unfamiliar word was possibly an acronym of some sort, although what it might stand for, I had no clue (“Do What Always Delivers Assiduous Serenity And Meditative, Sweet Altruism”…or something…).  So I … More Divide…then sub-divide…and keep repeating…

Location, location, location…

One of the things I so enjoy about Astrology is its versatility: there are so many different ways to go about applying the same set of underlying principles.  As examples: we can analyze our own birth charts to get a better grasp on who we are as individuals, and how we’re each of us so … More Location, location, location…

Your Chariot awaits…

Recently, I put up a post here about synchronicity, and how I believe that when certain things seem to get referenced repeatedly in our vicinity within a fairly brief period of time by seemingly unrelated sources, this can be taken as some kind of message to us from the Universe… So this happened to me … More Your Chariot awaits…

Me, Myself, and I…and I

Through studying various fields within what are known as “the Esoteric Sciences,” I’ve come to believe that we have not just one “self” — rather, I feel it’s more accurate to say that in this life, the thing that each of us thinks of as “myself” is actually a conglomeration of no less than four … More Me, Myself, and I…and I

“Signs Point To Yes!”

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve been devoting serious time and energy toward studying Astrology.  This is a discipline that’s incredibly complex, and to the doe-eyed beginner, getting your head around it can seem a bit like being asked to learn differential equations from someone who doesn’t speak your language. Nevertheless!!…I proceed.  I … More “Signs Point To Yes!”
