The Myth of Gold-Loving Mithras

Predator at Dusk slice
On this blog and elsewhere I have been known to grouse about the anti-social habits of the gold-hoarding crowd with their shriveled hearts and dainty minds.

But greedy bald-headed men in charge are tiresomely chronic problems for mankind on archetypal levels as evidenced by the subterranean Temples of Mithras, whose myth we associate with the sign, Taurus, the Bull.

And Taurus the Bull is associated with all the things you think the oxen energies might be associated with – from bull fighting in Spain to gouging for gold in a creekbed pan to lust for golden sceptres.

Or tallying up golden coins behind closed doors inside a royal counting house.

And you probably know the ancient city with the largest concentration of Mithras’ temples found so far, right?

Rome. As you suspected.


An Art btw for you: Cosmic Ties, a new line of fashion neckties has now become available at Jude Cowell Art Store hosted by the wonderful Zazzle.com.

Above image is a slice of ‘Predator at Dusk’ which looks wildly striking as a necktie!

Plus, you may find more stuff in my Art Store such as T-shirts, Tote Bags, and Ladies slip-on Keds so do drop by when your schedule allows, for I’d be happy as a puppy with two tails to see ya!

And I’m please to report that my Wedding Day Astrology: Dave and Regina Letterman (a Page in the sidebar column to your left) has received page views galore – all done in an effort to snag what I believe is a fond look at the Letterman family.

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
