Rave On

Naturally, it’s hot. I have a slight headache which possibly has something to do with an imbalance in my caffeine intake. I’m trying to balance it up with a cup of chai. I got a spectacular comment on my last blog so I’ll be especially aware as I write this one. It contained both the word ‘tripe’ and ‘Shakespearean’. Check it out and let me know if I am seriously off the mark or not. I’d like to know. That said – it’s a big week. Lion Island are supporting Dent May at the Troubadour in Brisbane on Thursday Night (we’re on at 9.30pm), I’ll be rabbitting on at 6.20am on Friday on ABC Radio (again Brisbane) with Spencer Howson. (After the gig the night before it could be interesting) – and I’m doing a book signing at Angus and Robertson’s at Post Office Square (again Brizzy) from 11am to 2pm on Friday. Fortune still isn’t dancing with fame – though I did get my first royalty cheque this week. That was a blast. It is the time of Aquarius. Did you know that the original image of the Water-Bearer came as a description of the water-bearing winds – the winds that delivered the rains to the Nile Valley. That’s all your average Aquarian is trying to do – to deliver you refreshing rains, fertilise your earth and rejuvenate your countryside. Go with it!

Rave On

It’s muggy and hot. The mosquitoes have begun their evening raids. I am hoping that sooner rather than later those who purchase my book discover that it really is a whole new take on Astrology. Though all those involved – Printer, Artist, Editor and Designer – have made it light and beautiful, it does have a twist in the tail. Please be encouraged to go out, buy it and ponder what that twist may be. Or maybe here’s a hint. Saturn is on my mind a lot these days. Perhaps it’s because life is going through a grindingly slow patch that doesn’t seem to have much to do with my expectations. That familiar old slow down stop and get real thing is in the air. I went out today and printed off a whole heap of images of goats that I have been collecting. Wild goats on mountain tops, libidinous goats cavorting with unclad women and skeletal men, and goats that have been made to look decidedly demonic – to discourage any kind of wizardry or witchery among young Chritians in the Middle Ages. Liz Greene talks about Capricorn (and Saturn), as containing within it the blueprint of an archetypal battle between a rigid earthbound father and an id driven (read sex) son. Libido and responsibility wrestling in the stars – and in a good many garden-variety psyches. My question is how to take these two protaganist energies back home to Zen? In the mid-point between two opposing energies there is always a balance that is subtly transcendent. When there is harmony and embrace instead of battle and division, something mysterious happens that defies the mind. I am still wobbling around with archetypes and meditation. How to get them to dance? How do they dance with each other? They dance together beautifully when one plays with them experientially. Talk never really gets to it. So, if there’s anyone out there who wants to play for real with experiential astrology for gods sake get in touch. In Brisbane – or elsewhere.
