Enlightening notes on Hephaistos, the first archetype of disability:

La Audacia de Aquiles

►Greek Mythology: “Hephaestus”  /

“Collaboration with Holly Rene Hunter”:

“The Fall Of Hephaestus” by C. Van Poelenburg. 17th century.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Hephaestus(Roman equivalent: Vulcan)  was the Greek god of fire, metal work, blacksmiths and craftsmen.

According to Homer’s  “Iliad”, Hephaestus was born of the union of Zeusand Hera. In another tradition, attested by Hesiod, Hera bore Hephaestus alone.

Hephaestus. Attic Red Figure. 430 – 420 BC.

Hesiod tells us in “Theogony”, that in order to get even with Zeus for solely bringing about the birth of Athena, Hera produced the child Hephaestus all on her own.

Though Hesiod’s version seems to be the one that is most commonly accepted among readers, its content greatly alters our understanding of the birth of Athena. The ancient texts unequivocally state that it was Hephaestus who released the goddess from the head of Zeus by cracking the god’s…

The 3 vibration

3 is my kind of number!

Aphrolina

In Numerology, each number gives off a unique vibration. The number 3 is the number of creation. Optimism, imagination, self-expression, and charm are terms that can be used to describe the vibration of this number. The power of the number 3 is one that allows the bearer to create original solutions, that were previously unknown.

Many profound triads are represented by this number. For example:

  • Past, present, and future
  • The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit from the Bible
  • Birth, life, and death

Bearers of the number 3 are the artists of the world. Generally extraverted, they possess a strong desire to express themselves, and to spread joy to others. The gift of communication, both verbally and written, is something they rely on. It is a tool that they were endowed with in this lifetime.

Of course there cannot be positive without negative, no light without dark. Negative traits that are associated with the…

Trump Family Files for More Migrant Workers!

Setting all hypocrisy aside, the Trump Family Wants More Migrant Workers for Family Businesses in spite of Trump’s campaign promise to create thousands of jobs for American workers.

Hypocrisy, simple irony, or both?

Do you think the very public presidential spotlight on the family’s business activities has turned out to be brighter than expected? You know, along the lines of “who knew healthcare was so complicated?” Everybody knew but Donald!

““The Martuk Series” of novellas… really captivated me…with an amplified sense of brutality and pain, there’s dark stuff here kids, all the way around. And I am on pins and needles for the next entry in “The Martuk Series”, “The Tall Priest”.

Not only will this push the envelope, it will guild that envelope in gold, hone it to a razors edge and use it in a beautiful & brutal ceremony. It so fucking heavy and beautiful and I loved every moment of it.”

David Stockman, March 15, and the Debt Ceiling

With Congress set to vote March 15th on raising the US debt ceiling here are some unsettling words from former White House budget director under Ronald Reagan, David Stockman:

“There will not be Obamacare repeal and replace. There will be no tax cut. There will be no infrastructure stimulus. There will be just one giant fiscal bloodbath over a debt ceiling that has to be increased and no one wants to vote for.”

Mr. Stockman foresees a distinct potential for government shutdown on the near horizon, a Republican tactic I tend to assume is dress rehearsal for the real and final thing so that we’ll all say, oh please please set up global government, the chaos is way too big to handle by a government founded way back in 1776!

It’s the Hegelian Dialect in action. But this American is not saying, please please. Are you?

Even so, astrological Neptune often acts in insidious ways–like on March 12th, 3 days before the March 15th vote, when a culmination occurs under a Full Moon @22Vir13 – conjunct US natal Neptune (22Vir25) of 1776.

This trio forms an interesting midpoint picture – Sun-Moon = Neptune: ‘delusions about what you can do or how hard you will work to do it’ (Munkasey). The March 2017 Full Moon shines brightly upon America’s Neptune which squares our natal Mars in Gemini, a problematic square suggesting such issues as ‘the fog of war’ and misdirected or misguided energy. Plus, impulsively planned activities are a constant caution with a Mars-Neptune square along with confused perceptions that lead to mistakes.

And the Sun-Moon midpoint potentials of March 12th in relation to Politics and Business? ‘Taking the country into new directions, the international reputation of the country, and/or smears on the national reputation‘.

Sounds just like just what Republican politicians intend for America. Oh, and there’s another potential: reading the attitude of the people when making national policy.

Well, if that were the case (as it should be) we’d have a functioning republic that uses tax payer monies to fund the needs of the country we have instead of waging perpetual war on behalf of the futuristic Utopian global society the power elite is in process of forcing upon us.

Summer Solstice 2017: Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus

When Summer 2017 begins in June there will be a Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus vibe in the air, something of a Moon-Venus influence with Cancer ruled by the Moon and Taurus one of Venus’ favorite signs.

If you wish, view the horoscope of Summer Solstice 2017 with Trump’s natal planets penned around it. The chart is set for Washington DC as representative or symbol of our entire nation. Mr. Trump’s first natal planet to rise in the solstice chart is his quirky, radical Uranus in communicating (sometimes duplicitous) Gemini so we’ve got that going for us.

But what about the lovely Moon-Venus vibe we were talking about? This is a blend of energies that can result in excellent teaching abilities, shrewd perceptions, and subjective prejudices (not necessarily in that order!) along with a certain fussiness and values that are rooted in the past. I can think of a few neanderthal politicians who could be described by such rootedness but let’s not mention any names of the culprits.

Now in their masterful book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey give three ‘Images for Integration’ which refer to the conscious (Sun) and unconscious (Moon) minds and energies working together for best results. Under the influence of the practical Water-Earth combo of Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus they are:

“A family photo album…A flourishing family business…A painter captures the taste and smell of a landscape.”

Oh and did I mention that this combination relates to the concept of ‘smother mothering’?  Now maternalism we might have had to some degree with a Hillary Clinton presidency but instead the US government was taken in a different and well-worn direction–of “smug and strong-armed paternalism”  (18 Capricorn, Jones) with the wrong-headed goal of perpetual war now more set in stone than before by neocons, Vulcans, and war profiteers.

So as the warmongers have their way with the tax payers’ money, Summer will begin and zoom toward a disruptive Solar Eclipse coming in August (29 Leo), an eclipse that ‘hits’ the natal Ascendant (physical body; Self) of Mr. Trump and ruffles his rising Mars in Leo. Will the Jupiterian Mr. Trump act as “The Great American Eclipse” visible across the entire country from Oregon to South Carolina?

Can the effects of the August 2017 eclipse , the first repetition of the 1 North Saros Series since it manifested in August 1999 as the ‘King of Terror’ eclipse predicted by Nostradamus, be symbolized as a hidden meaning of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan? Sounds a bit too coincidental to me…but I’m the suspicious type!
