Thoth Journey

The New Moon in Taurus on the 26th April 2017, falls in the first decan (10 degrees) of this earthy and fecund sign, only a few days before the festival of Beltane, marking the beginning of summer in the ancient Celtic calendar. Beltane is half way between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice, and was traditionally celebrated with the lighting of bonfires and the movement of animals to summer pastures. In Irish mythology, the beginning of the summer season started with the Fire Festival at Beltane.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
