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. XI- AQUARIUS

Posted on April 15th, 2018 by Don Cerow

              HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. XI- AQUARIUS  This week we’re taking a look at the 11th chapter of Homer’s Odyssey, a chapter which, if our hypothesis is correct, corresponds to the 11th sign of the zodiac, Aquarius. If Aquarius is around, the stars shouldn’t’t be far behind. The eye of the Sun […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. X- CAPRICORN

Posted on April 10th, 2018 by Don Cerow

This week we’re taking a look at the tenth chapter of Homer’s Odyssey, a chapter devoted to Capricorn, a CARDINAL EARTH sign ruled by Saturn. The glyph associated with this sign is that of a Sea-goat, half-goat and half-fish, often depicted overseeing life from the top of a mountain. In the body Capricorn rules the spinal column, skeletal system […]

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 […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. VIII- SCORPIO

Posted on January 16th, 2018 by Don Cerow

               SEX AND DEATH  This week we’re taking a look at the 8th chapter of Homer’s epic novel, the Odyssey, suggesting that it is part of an Astrological Primer, an ancient handbook for learning astrology, for learning about life. The eighth chapter corresponded not only to the sign of the zodiac we are all familiar with, […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. VII- LIBRA

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 […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. V- LEO

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. In hard alignments these same themes can generate a ‘lack of’ or ‘difficulty with’ these same items. The […]

Posted on November 19th, 2017 by Don Cerow

  We’re up to our fourth chapter of Homer which correlates to the fourth sign of the zodiac, Cancer. Ruled by the Moon, this is a Cardinal Water sign that deals with the feminine, home, family, silver, womb and birth, bath, beds, sleep and things nautical. And then, there’s always food.

Gemini is the third sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by Mercury, it is a Mutable AIR sign which deals with the intellect and nervous systems. This is the sign of duality as represented by the Twins, brothers and sibling. They’re clever and precocious. If you know the myth about Hermes birth, it highlights his creativity on […]

HOMER’s ODYSSEY, Ch. I- ARIES

Posted on October 5th, 2017 by Don Cerow

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. […]

21:5  And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, 6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but […]

ANNUAL QUEST

Posted on September 6th, 2017 by Don Cerow

        Have just returned from our annual quest to Gail’s grave. Evalyn came out for the 30th annual Women’s Herb Conference and we usually take the time remove all the dead stalks and leaves. Under this alignment we journeyed from Nantucket to Western Mass and the South Ashfield cemetery in anticipation of changing […]

A LITTLE HISTORY

Posted on August 21st, 2017 by Don Cerow

  From the book: “A little more than one hundred years after the events of 7 BC, the first surviving comprehensive work on astronomy, astrology and geography was written by Claudius Ptolomy. His astronomical observations were made between AD 125 and 140. For the next thousand years and beyond, the works of this author were […]

LEARNING FROM THE LENS OF HISTORY

Posted on August 7th, 2017 by Don Cerow

Historically speaking, eclipses were generally feared. One month from now, as the eclipse runs through the core of the country (from Oregon to South Carolina), President Trump’s Ascendant will be triggered as his light goes out, either personally or politically. Unlike Hillary (and a number of other political notables), there has only been one solid […]

TRUMP AND THE NATIONAL ECONOMY

Posted on July 9th, 2017 by Don Cerow

      In examining this Full Moon, what immediately jumps out is the recent nationalistic sentiment being stirred up by President Trump, of his representing the patriotic fervor of ‘Making America great again’. It was enough to tap a vein of enthusiasm within the country so that it got him elected. This is the Sun […]

THE VIEW OVER ATLANTIS III

Posted on June 23rd, 2017 by Don Cerow

Over the last couple of Moon Mails we have been sharing some of the notions proposed by John Michell in his classic work, The View over Atlantis. In simple terms it proposed that there was once a world wide system of highways and bi-ways that were specifically contoured to help improve the vibrancy and health of […]
