Astrology 101: Planets in Signs (Part 1)

We’ve now met the 10 most major Planets used in modern Astrology, along with the 12 Signs of the Zodiac. However, instead of racing right into the third and final of the three primary symbol-sets in this field – the Houses – it might be more helpful to take a look at how those first … More Astrology 101: Planets in Signs (Part 1)

Astrology 101: Meet the Planets!

Last time around, I spoke a bit about the Planets in general; in this post, we’ll look at the major Planetary players as distinct individuals. Before we jump into their profiles, I should repeat here again that “Planet” in Astrology doesn’t mean quite the same thing that it means in Astronomy. For our purposes here, … More Astrology 101: Meet the Planets!

Astrology 101: The Planets (in General)

Astrology is one complex field, no question about it. Not only is it bristling with all manner of symbols to keep track of – Planets, Signs, Houses, Aspects, Points – but not a single one of these symbols is cooperative enough to have just one single meaning. Instead, each one is more of an overall … More Astrology 101: The Planets (in General)

Astrology 101: the Major Symbol-Sets (Planets, Signs, and Houses)

If you want to learn Astrology, there are three major symbol-sets that you’ll have to grasp: Planets, Signs, and Houses. This came as a real surprise to me when I first felt my interest in the field catch fire. I’d vaguely assumed that Astrology was just concerned with the Signs of the Zodiac, and that would … More Astrology 101: the Major Symbol-Sets (Planets, Signs, and Houses)

Astrology 101: Glyphs

Astrology is a fascinating field. A sort of alchemy all its own, Astrology is like a fusion of art and science…a melding of language and math… When you first arrive through its front doorway, agog with wonder, and eager to learn, it’s very easy to be knocked immediately back out over the same threshold that … More Astrology 101: Glyphs

Very unexpectedly: Jupiter!!

I’d like to keep this post on the briefer side today if I can, as I’m still battling a fairly whopping case of strep throat, and I didn’t sleep much last night because of it…but that lack of sleep also gives rise to the subject of this post — Jupiter! — so it can’t be … More Very unexpectedly: Jupiter!!

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…

Ladies of the Night

Well, after a lovely, court-free, trial-free weekend, it’s back to the courthouse for me today, as the trial for which I’m serving as a juror resumes.  I don’t have the kind of time available for posting the kind of long(-winded) posts I usually like to generate here, but I also didn’t want to leave this … More Ladies of the Night

Goddess of Wisdom

My attendance at the local courthouse has been excused for the day, so while the trial at which I’m serving as juror will continue on Monday, I’m free until then…which means I can post something today!  What, then to post about…?  Well, to be honest, all signs have been pointing loudly and repeatedly at…Athena, Greek … More Goddess of Wisdom

From out of the jungle of dreams…

Hmm…yet another animal dream last night!  ‘Tis the season?  For me, at least, it seems to be, as a few of my previous, recent posts will illustrate… This time, it was a dream of a lion: However, while the lion may be widely acclaimed as “The King of the Jungle,” the dream did not take … More From out of the jungle of dreams…
