HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. XIII- ARIES II

Posted on May 15th, 2018 by Don Cerow

Resetting the Tumblers Our hypothesis in this series is that Homer’s books, the Iliad and the Odyssey, are astrological primers. Each work has 24 chapters, apparently linked to the 12 signs of the zodiac. In either work, chapter one equals Aries while chapter twelve finishes with Pisces. Chapter thirteen starts the whole cycle over again with Aries, chapter fourteen with […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. XII- PISCES

Posted on April 29th, 2018 by Don Cerow

This is our twelfth sign, or constellation if you prefer. Three thousand years ago, the era when the Odyssey was composed, the two were one. This twelfth division corresponds to Pisces, a mutable WATER sign ruled in contemporary times by Neptune (Gk- Poseidon), and in antiquity by Jupiter (Gk- Zeus). Venus is in its exaltation in […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. IX- SAGITTARIUS (cont)

Posted on March 17th, 2018 by Don Cerow

In our last Moon Mail, we took a look at Chapter IX of Homer’s Odysseyand compared it’s themes to its rulership (Zeus and/or Jupiter), and the sign that it ruled (Sagittarius). Using a code that relies to a large extent on imagery and repetition, we began to observe a number of related characteristics that emerge through the chapter, especially […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. IX- SAGITTARIUS

Posted on March 8th, 2018 by Don Cerow

  With Odysseus as our role model in this chapter, we see this new persona making it’s appearance right at the beginning as our hero declares that his fame has ‘reached the skies‘ (line 23). In fact, anything that derives from the skies such as rain, storms, hail, lightning and even the planets (Jupiter’s children) fall into […]

Posted on January 1st, 2018 by Don Cerow

 Libra is a CARDINAL AIR sign ruled by Venus. Like the scales which it represents, its vibration is attuned to balance, marriage and harmony. Of course the symbolism of the scales brings in the whole notion of the LEGAL SYSTEM and the virtues (truth, honesty, integrity, justice, etc) inherent there. It’s season is AUTUMN, its cardinal […]

Posted on December 3rd, 2017 by Don Cerow

                 CAN YOU SPELL ‘LOVER’?  Leo is a FIXED FIRE sign, ruled by the Sun. In the body it rules the heart and things related to the heart, such as love and heart-break, loved ones, children and pleasure.

GOLDEN TREADS   In a mix of metaphors, we are to set out once again in a Herculean task as we examine in close detail Homer’s epic work, the Odyssey. Like its predecessor the Iliad, it is a work composed of 24 chapters which is, in essence, an astrological primer for students of the stars. […]
