A Stellar Character “The ghostly figure of a toiling hero rolls through heaven close by, on what labor bent no one can say, but men call him simply The Man on His Knees: an image of weariness sunk on his knees, his arms uplifted from both of his shoulders, and he holds his hands out […]

The Day After

Posted on November 23rd, 2012 by Don Cerow

Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates a special celestial significance. This is not surprising, as the heavens are always lock step with the seasons, and Thanksgiving is a seasonal holiday, generally held before winter at the end of the growing cycle. In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of every November. […]

All Souls Day

Posted on November 2nd, 2012 by Don Cerow

Keys to the Kingdom

Posted on October 29th, 2012 by Don Cerow

The ghosts of lost cultures linger still about the ancient gates of Time. Let’s pursue their dim outline and carefully listen to what these phantoms might have to tell us about the old ways.

Khnum

Posted on October 19th, 2012 by Don Cerow

Here in the columns of the WEB over the decades we have continually come back to the theme of the Ages and their importance as molders of civilization.

Probing the Fault

As we write this column, Saturn is trining Neptune, each at zero degrees of their respective signs. Saturn just entered zero degrees of Scorpio, while Neptune has retrograded back to zero Pisces.

From Age to Everlasting Age
