Lord of the Underworld…

I wrote here last week about how I found myself in this pitched battle against the forces of that condition we call “strep throat”…and I can restate here that it was a pretty unpleasant conflict.  With the help of a round of antibiotics, I’m at nearly 100% now, and the streptococci have been shown to … More Lord of the Underworld…

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…

Happy Scorpio wishes!

Occult symbolism, once you start to look for it, can seem to pervade the world around you kind of relentlessly, but also with startling accuracy.  For example, right now, as we speak (or…as I write this, anyway…), the Sun above us prepares to move into my own personal Sun Sign of Scorpio…. The Tarot card … More Happy Scorpio wishes!

Zodiac Signs: Something in the way we move…

I’ve mentioned several times here that in addition to disciplines such as Tarot and Runes, with which I’m comfortable, I’ve also been intently and vigorously studying the field of Astrology for quite a few months now.  This realm is in some ways maybe the most complex out of all of the various systems I’ve studied, … More Zodiac Signs: Something in the way we move…

Some very, *very* basic Astrology info…

So in my last post, I waxed on a bit about the avatars that we create for ourselves for use in wandering about through the world…  That is, we each have what I’ll call here an “inner self” that exists no matter what we do — this is our true self, inescapable, made up of … More Some very, *very* basic Astrology info…

“Vital Signs” (special bonus post for 8/8/13!!)

As I was writing my earlier post today about the Ice-Rune, Isa, this old song called “Vital Signs,” by Canadian rock band, Rush, popped into my head.  This was a bit odd, as I haven’t heard that song in a long time, but then again, I did go through a serious Prog Rock phase back in … More “Vital Signs” (special bonus post for 8/8/13!!)

The Eagle has landed!

As your nearest astrologer will tell you, the Eagle is as valid a symbol for the Sign of Scorpio as is the Scorpion (some will even throw in the Serpent as well…so the Scorpio iconography can get especially crowded…)…but anyway, with all that being true, today’s title post seems especially on point, given just how … More The Eagle has landed!

Here Comes The Sun!

Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!! Due to astronomical peculiarities, the point during which our beloved, life-giving Sun reached its northernmost point in the sky occurred early this morning, while it was still technically nighttime here in the Northern Hemisphere…which means that yesterday and today will end up being about equal in terms of amount of daylight, … More Here Comes The Sun!
