Wednesday Is For Mercury and Thoth The Atlantean

“The matter first of metals Mercury

A moisture is which wetteth not the hand

Yet flows, and therefore is named water dry,

The vulgar is at every one’s command,

But this is not the water we desire,

For in our water is our secret fire.

This Matter while its life it did retain,

Was apt all metals e’en to procreate,

The life when gone, then dead it doth remain

Till a new soul shall it reanimate.

This Matter is to metals all of kin

All which do hide a Mercury within.

He then who knows the parts of Mercury

And can it superfluities decrease

And with true sulfur it can vivify;

For dead it is, though, fluent, he with east

May gold unlock and after recongeal

Both to an Essence which all griefs can heal.

Lo! Here a spring of wealth, a Tree of Life,

No wealth so great, no sickness here is rife,

Here in a map, thou seest the creatures all

Abridged, and reduced to their perfection.

Here thou beholdest in a Subject Small,

From this world’s misery a full protection.

O Mercury, you wonder of the world!

How strange thy nature is and how compact!

A body dost possess which doth enfold

A Spirit inexpressible to act,

Our mysteries; this only we desire,

This is our water, this our secret fire.

For Argent Vive is gold essential

Only unripe, which, if thou canst prepare

By art, it gives the secret menstrual:

The mother of our Stone which is so rare.

Our oil, our unguent, and our marchasite;

Which we do name also our fountain bright.

O crystal fountain! Which with fourfold spring

Rubs down the valleys with its pearly drops

Distilling, with which our noble king

Is washed and carried to the mountain tops,

Where he the virtue of the Heavens receives,

Which never after him, when fixed, leaves.

This our May-dew which our earth doth move

To bring forth fruit, which fruit is perfect gold:

This is our Eve, whom Adam doth so love,

That in her arms his soul, stange to be told,

He doth receive, who erst as dead was seen,

And quickened first appears in colours green.

How this? Even thus, in Saturn there is hid

A soul immortal which in prison lies,

Untie its fetters, which do it forbid

To sight for to appear, then shall arise

A Vapour shining, like pearl orient,

Which is our Moon and sparkling Firmament.”

Astrological Talismans: Deneb Algedi Talismanic Tile

Peter Stockinger's Traditional Astrology Weblog

Regular readers of my web log may remember that in November 2020, Christine Norstrand, artist and founder of William Morris Tile, provided me with Planetary tiles from the well known De Sphaera series. The image below shows them in situ:

After a long, possibly pandemic related, postal delay I recently took hold of another parcel from William Morris Tile. It contained a Talismanic Tile, another one of Christine’s exciting projects.

Jupiter conjunct fixed star Deneb Algedi

The tile’s main image is based on The White Hart, a pub sign, painted by the artist Myles Birket Foster in 1875. Foster lived in the village of Witley, near Godalming, Surrey, where this sign hung outside the village inn, the White Hart.

The image of the hart is surrounded by sigils of the Behenain fixed star, Deneb Algedi, a star in the Sea Goat’s tail.

The 15 Behenian fixed stars are a selection…

Astrology | FORECAST – APRIL 2020 : CREATING THE NEW

CosmicMind

https://thepowerpath.com/monthly-forecast/april-2020-monthly-support/

“When a computer runs out of space and memory, it is time to shut it down, clean it up, get rid of the old files that are cluttering up the system, and add an internal upgrade. When it is rebooted, you have many more options, a learning curve for the new applications, and the kinks often need to be worked out.

If our planet is like a computer, it has now been shut down. A virus has corrupted our files and we are in the process of reworking everything. When it reboots, it will be a different operating system that will have to take some getting used to. When the computer is down, one has to use creative and alternative methods to complete tasks and communicate with others. This is a simple analogy of the bigger picture of where we are.

Creating the New requires adaptability, flexibility, resourcefulness and…

Astrology | Isolated Ambition, New Moon in Aries.

Mystic Moons Astrology

The flavor of this New Moon in Aries on 3/24 is ambition. I know that with the current global events, and unknown future challenges, we are all adapting to a changing daily life.

This Moon will put some fire in our projects, work, and lifestyle. Giving us hope for our future plans. It will allow us to call in new energy, work on self care, and asking us to be aggressive towards the things we want. So let’s talk about this Aries New Moon.

Venus in Taurus (Home) Sextile Neptune in PIsces (Home) 2020-03-22

This is a “feel good” day with a “feel good” aspect that can be critically important to creatives, notably poets & lyricists, photographers and videographers, and anything similar.  It tends to be rare, but if you screw up and miss the opportunity you MIGHT can get it again in 2021, 2022, 2023, or 2024.  After that, the window does not re-open until 2176.

A bit of warning is in order: Mars conjunct Pluto is also applying.  Care must be taken to avoid being susceptible to delusions produced by unscrupulous people (scammers and other criminals and agents of deceit).  Working alone, or only with trusted others, is advisable.

We suggest you seize the dreams and ideas that come to you today and grow and harvest them through the windows of opportunity that exist until 2024.  After that, either you have done…

Vernal Equinox of 2020

The Vernal Equinox of 2020 is here. The chart above shows the moment of the Equinox, filtered to show the Thor’s Hammer pattern that is present.

We have written about the Thor’s Hammer pattern before:

In all fairness, I have seen many Thor’s Hammer days that did not produce explosions, mine collapses, or school shooters.  Regardless, they do seem to be difficult days.  The marker does show up frequently with violence and explosions.  Caution should be considered.

Interested in an “in depth” astrological analysis of the Sandy Hook school shootings?  >click here<  Since school is out in most localities, we do not expect any school shootings.  But, that same energy can manifest in other places.

T-Squares [Astrological Aspects]

Practiced Ignorance

t-square Picture credit: Astrotheme

The T-square is one of the most common composed aspects in astrological charts, and understanding its energies is critical to interpreting all kinds of charts. They occur in natal, synastry, composite, and return charts. They can easily describe a person’s, or a couple’s, central life drama, depending on how they are wired into the chart, so knowing how to interpret them is key to distilling the meaning in a chart.

After some notes about their dynamics, I’ll interpret one to show how it works in practice.

We know the world is on CORONAVIRUS lockdown and in fear. The MOON is in obsessive, secretive, dark Scorpio energies.

Scorpio is the sign of Paranoia.  The Moon is making a Trine to Neptune and the SUN today in PISCES. pouring darker, more emotional fuel into the pot and also adding to our ability to go deeply internal, and seek source energy.

There are 3 lovely sextiles today too. Moon to Mars Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn this helps us to stay grounded. This is power energy. It’s grounded and capable of transforming the most difficult obstacles.

Are you superstitious? Were you born under a bad sign?  The scientific name for fear of #13 is called triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. Why is the #13 feared and supposed to be bad? The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and…

For the Glory of God – Of Renaissance Popes and their Astrologers

Peter Stockinger's Traditional Astrology Weblog

We begin our story with Guliano della Rovere. As Pope Julius II, he was head of the Roman Catholic Church and ruler of the Papal States from 1503 to his death in 1513. He also was an ardent follower of astrology. His personal astrologer, Antonio Campanazzo, postponed Julius’ coronation to make sure that the event would fall on an auspicious date. During his time in office, Julius ordered the demolition of the sacred early Christian basilica, built over the tomb of St Peter. It was to be replaced with the new Saint Peter’s Basilica, which was to become a world famous landmark. Again, Julius’ astrologers were called in to elect the most auspicious moment for the laying of the foundation stone. The date the astrologers elected was 18 April 1506.
