TIME WILL TELL

Posted on April 29th, 2014 by Don Cerow

Over the last few Moon Mails, we’ve been taking a look at the Cardinal Grand Cross in an effort to better understand just what it might mean. Laying out the aspects a few weeks ago (and explaining just why the configuration can be so complex), we now have a partial review of what has transpired […]

SPRING CLEANING

Like stones placed along a path, so individual alignments help to contour the course of the incoming New Age. This is the week where we begin to see just how Time will craft a few of these colorful threads. Over the next ten days or so some of our millennial Spring Cleaning begins in earnest. This is the […]

FIRECRACKERS ON A STRING

Posted on March 1st, 2014 by Don Cerow

This spring, we will witness the manifestation of the Grand Cardinal Cross in dramatic fashion. People hear this term being bandied about by astrologers, without really knowing what it means. Indeed, even the astrologers do not fully understand what it will mean, but in general there’s a powerful combination that is getting ready to be […]

Egyptian Archaeology

Posted on February 14th, 2014 by Don Cerow

Venus is considered to be the ruler of Taurus. During the time during which the Vernal Equinox was passing through the constellation Taurus, themes thought to be within the ‘realm’ of Venus come into more prominence, as her mythical qualities are ‘nourished’ by heaven above. We know a great deal about Egypt, in part because the […]

Sacred Script, The Divine Word

Posted on January 15th, 2014 by Don Cerow

     Mythology is a form of symbolic communication. This manner of connecting is very old and predates the phonetic script we use today. While hieroglyphics were thought of as part of a divine script or ‘God’s word’, it was held in high regard by various cultures before phonetic script, based on sound rather than images, began to […]

Tales of Ages Long Forgotten: Finnish III

Posted on January 1st, 2014 by Don Cerow

Ages come and Ages go. As each New Age washes overs us civilizations learn new lessons about life, new ways of being. Once an epoch has past, cultural memories begin to fade, preserved first by tradition before being lost beneath the sands of Time. The more one walks the mythic trail, the more it becomes […]

Center and Circle: Finnish Myth II

   Last edition we applied an old formula to a new genus of myths. The Kalevala is a compilation of recited verses that record the memories and beliefs of the ancestral Finnish people in song. It was an oral tradition in a truly magical world, for to them, all things, for good or for ill, were the […]

Serpentine Secrets: Cherokee III

  Through the annals of the WEB, we have examined the relationship of Dragon to serpent many times, for there is much to be seen there. The name for the constellation ‘Draco’ is simply a Greek word for ‘snake’.  Since Draco was a snake that circled through the heavens night after night, without any of […]

Blazing Star: Cherokee II

  This is another reflection on a Cherokee myth, one that seems to tie together Uktena (our Dragon, Draco) with mountains, circular ceremonies, and a gem of great power for those who knew how to wield it.     If we follow the mythic clues being presented to us, an interesting pattern begins to emerge […]

The Great Bear: Lakota V

Posted on September 19th, 2013 by Don Cerow

  We’ve been observing Lakota star tales recently, noting some of the many ways the People (what the Lakota call themselves) made use of stellar information. The stars were employed to tell when to plant and when to harvest, they suggested where the People should be geographically and when, and were used as an inspiration […]

   Over the last few weeks, we’ve been looking at the Lakota and listening to a few of their stellar stories. While there are differences between their theologies and those of western tradition, there are also similarities.  The naming of the Bear, flight of the Thunderbird, and sharing of the sisters (Pleiades) provide an initial […]

Owl and Bear: Lakota Stars III

  The deeper one looks into the mythologies of indigenous peoples, the more one finds associations that link them to other traditions. We think of Ursa Major as the Great Bear, Big Dipper or the Wheel. Native Americans also called the seven principle stars of this constellation the Great Bear or Big Dipper. They tell […]

According to the Lakota, the stars were called “The holy breath of the Great Spirit,” the woniya of Wakan Tanka. […]
