Rahu and Ketu

Rahu & Ketu
By C. Hartley, 1997

According to the Sanskrit epic poem, the Mahabharata, the Hindu gods decided to mix up a batch of soma, the elixir of immortality. The gods were to drink the elixir to become immortal. The gods needed help from the demons to stir up the oceans to produce the elixir.

Out of the churning oceans the Sun, Moon, many goddess, and magic things were produced along with the soma. Vishnu took charge of distributing the freshly made soma to the gods but while it was being passed out the demons started battling with the gods for a taste of the elixir and in the confusion one of the demons, Rahu, disguised himself as a god and drank some of the elixir.

By Bob King, March 31, 2015

Get ready for one awesome total lunar eclipse early Saturday morning April 4th. For the third time in less than a year, the Moon dips into Earth’s shadow, its dazzling white globe turning sunset red right before your eyes.  All eclipses are not-to-miss events, but Saturday’s totality will be the shortest in a century. Brief but beautiful – just like life. Read on to find out how to make the most of it.

Lunar eclipses don’t usually happen in any particular order. A partial eclipse is followed by a total is followed by a penumbral and so on. Instead, we’re in the middle of a tetrad, four total eclipses in a row Continue reading

Styx Moon

Pluto moon P5 discovery with moons' orbits.jpgStyx (Moon)

Styx is a small natural satellite of Pluto whose discovery was announced on 11 July 2012. It is the fifth confirmed satellite of Pluto and was found approximately one year after Kerberos, Pluto’s fourth confirmed satellite.

Styx was discovered by a team led by astronomer Mark R. Showalter, using fourteen sets of images taken between 26 June and 9 July 2012 by the Wide Field Camera 3 fitted to the Hubble Space Telescope.

Styx is about half as bright as the dimmest previously known object in the system, Kerberos, and about one hundred thousandth as bright as Pluto. It was designated S/2012 (134340) 1, and informally referred to as P5. Continue reading

Knowledge Speaks but Wisdom Listens

7 Spirit Astrology

Saturday’s Full Moon in Gemini brings to the light our need for a change of mind or perhaps a balancing of information vs. intuition.  With the Sun in Sagittarius opposite the Moon in Gemini, our quest for Truth brings to our experience the consequences of our thoughts and beliefull moon geminifs.

We have large amounts of information but very little time to sort it. Our beliefs become stagnant because we are too busy and/or too scared to question them.  So we hold on to the old structures that make us feel safe regardless of our changing world.

With this abundant amount of change going on around us- our world, our communications, our scientific discoveries and all the information that we have access to- our nervous system is taxed and it becomes very difficult for us to integrate all of the scattered pieces. We become anxious, even fearful- fearful of change…

“To speak a true word is to transform the world.” – Paulo Freire

The Full Moon in communicative Gemini opposes the Sun and Mercury in truth-seeking Sagittarius

The Sun in Sagittarius this month desires the freedom to follow your heart. No sign, perhaps with the exception of Aquarius, yearns for the freedom from restraint as much as Sagittarius. Associated with potential, the image of limitless possibility entices us. Entwined with the desire for freedom, exists the philosopher’s quest for purpose and meaning. Yet, truth appears differently for each of us. So does freedom.

We live within a societal structure that places the “freedom” of some lives, and some voices, above others. Recently, more public attention has been drawn to this reality through the lack of indictment of white police officers who have killed unarmed black men, igniting protests and illuminating numerous racial disparities that exist for people of…
