It is designed to provide some alternative to web searches that turn up dozens of pages by astrologers, tarot readers, and palmists--most seeking your money and all "believers." Although moderns practitioners can occasionally provide useful information, they tend to misrepresent ancient evidence in favor of false continuity and simplicity. I should say at the outset that I am not a believer in astrology or any other form of divination. I am instead interested in ancient culture, of which astrology and divination are important aspects.

Tarot Weblog - Adam McLean 9 March 2015 I had a look at the origins for the St Patrick's Well tarot of Ertan Aktas. This well was built built at Orvieto in Italy in 1527. It was called the Pozzo di San Patrizio and was designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger to supply water to the city in the event of siege. The well takes its name from St Patrick because of its alleged similarity with the cave the Irish saint is believed to have used as a retreat for penitence and prayer.

Temple of the Earth and Stars by Oraia Helene Meteor showers are some of my favorite things to watch in the night sky, and are all the more fun since several of them occur on a regular schedule every year. (And one of them is always right around my birthday, which is nice, too!) The word meteor comes from the Greek meteōros, meaning “high in the air” – this is also the root of the word “meteorology,” which is applied to the study of weather rather than the study of meteors. And, actually, until the early 19th Century – around the time of an amazing meteor storm in 1833, which I’ll come back to later – meteors were assumed by the western world to be atmospheric phenomena alone.
16 Steps To Tarot Mastery After meticulously following the instructions for shuffling and placing the cards in the Celtic Cross spread, you soon realize that it's going to take years of study and practice before you can deftly handle your cards like the pros at psychic fairs. An hour later, you've looked up the meaning of each card you've laid out, your confused brain trying to put it all together for some sort of central thesis. What you come up with is this: I'm terrible at Tarot reading and will never get any better. This is where many people give up, but there's a much easier way to master the Tarot, and it doesn't involve strict rules, intensive study or memorization. The method is intuitive Tarot reading, and anyone with an open mind and pure intentions can pick it up with ease.
The Zodiac, Cherubim & The Sphinx - Zodiac astrology mythology, Egypt sphinx Mars sphinx face Egypt pyramid Mars pyramids, angels, aliens, ufos, sphinx cherubim Ezekiel 41:18 And it (the paneling of the holy place of the temple) was made with cherubs ...and two faces were to a cherub, the face of a man, toward the palm tree from here, and a young lion's face toward the palm tree from there. It was made to all the house round and round...on the wall of the temple. Myth and God's Message in the Heavens The pictures found today in the zodiac were not developed by the Greeks, but were in place perhaps as early as 4000 B.C. predating even the civilizations of Sumeria . These pictures were not merely arranged in haphazard order to aid in the tracking of the star movements, but with the purpose of depicting an epic narrative.
Sacred geometry, Metatron's cube and the platonic solids - 3rd Dimension The image you see above is the correct version of "Metatron's Cube", or the fruit of life with the 5 platonic solids. I made it with a 3D program and what you see are the actual edges of the platonic solids. To understand what this is all about to begin with, check out some of our Sacred Geometry links (don't forget to bookmark this page for your convenience!). The dodecahedron and icosahedron actually have their "inner" corner points touching the star tetrahedron that fits in a circle that is = 1/Ø x the circle connecting the corners of the outer cube. Where Ø ("phi") = 1.618 033 988 749 594 ...
The moon in astrology - moon signs - Your inner self - Horoscope moonsigns - Astrology symbols - the moon Perhaps the major drawback of popular astrology - and another reason for its questionable status - is that it fails to recognize the importance of the moon. The moon symbolizes in astrology pretty much all of the self that isn't covered by the sun. Astrologers say the moon is the feminine or "passive" part of the psyche, and a more responsive energy compared to the sun.
Metatron Metatron Metatron (from Greek Meta+Tron meaning Beyond+Matrix.). Metatron is an angel in Judaism, some branches of Christianity and Islamic tradition Witchcraft. However, there are no references to him in the Jewish Tanakh (Old Testament), the Christian Scriptures (New Testament) or any Islamic source. There is no consensus as to his genesis or the role that he plays in the hierarchy of Heaven and Hell. A mysterious figure, Metatron is identified with the term, "lesser YHVH" which is the Lesser Tetragrammaton - in a Talmudic version read by the Karaite scholar Kirkisani. Moralization of the Deck of Cards, Part 3 « Mary K. Greer's Tarot Blog After exploring five hundred years of the moralization of playing cards in Part 1 and Part 2, we finally get to playing cards and, eventually, tarot, as a book of wisdom. I included this section under the theme of “moralization” because it shows a development of this theme into social-spiritual-political reform and a shift from an orthodox Christianity to a Humanism that arose in the Renaissance and Enlightenment. We see here that playing cards (and/or tarot) have been viewed, on occasion, as a book of the wise, teaching a timeless philosophy leading to the betterment of humankind.
Metatron's Cube Metatron's Cube Description The pattern delineated by many of the lines can be created by orthographic projections of the first three Platonic solids. Specifically, the line pattern includes projections of a double tetrahedron (aka stellated octahedron), a cube within a cube (a three-dimensional projection of a tesseract), and an octahedron. Although the image below shows the dodecahedron and the icosahedron fitting the pattern of Metatron's Cube, the vertices of those shapes do not coincide with the centers of the 13 circles (the icosahedron projection in the image below is false).
