Let me begin by thanking my readers for their continued support.  You have inspired me on my Journey; as well as the MANY bloggers I repost article from.  You mean the world to me.  NOW down to business 🙂

Here is another helpful article from our friends at IN5D.  This meditation should be done after protecting yourself; there is an amazing article link at the end of IN5D’s article on exactly HOW to do this.  Share your experiences, either here or in writing, I always find this helps me expand my Spiritual connection.  As it does when sleeping with a Tarot card under One’s pillow, the journal helps open our Universal Connection.  Enjoy the read, and I look forward to hearing from you.

ARCANUM EXPERIMENT WORKSHOP

Don’t miss this rare opportunity for deeper initiation into the mysteries of alchemy in a powerful union of practical and spiritual techniques.

The ancient Egyptian Arcanum Experiment will be performed publicly for the first time in modern history at the International Alchemy Conference on September 16, 2011. The highly symbolic chemical experiment demonstrates all the basic principles of alchemy and imparts a metaphysical understanding of its operations to those who witness it. The experiment was part of the Alexandrian initiation process, and its secrets were encoded into alchemical engravings, the Emerald Tablet, the Tarot, and other Hermetic traditions.

In ancient Alexandria, alchemists performed chemical demonstrations to develop early alchemistic philosophy and discover the underlying principles in the creation of the universe, which they believed had to be the basic pattern for all transformations. Many ingenious experiments were performed to determine the nature of the First Matter and the proper order of the appearance of the Elements, but the most important and impressive experiment was the Arcanum Experiment.

The Arcanum Experiment used seven secret ingredients called the Arcana: Vitriol (sulfuric acid and iron), Natron (sodium carbonate and sodium nitrate), Red Pulvis Solaris (a sulfur-mercury compound), Black Pulvis Solaris (a sulfur-antimony compound), and Liquor Hepatis (a sulfur-ammonia solution). The dramatic unfolding of the Arcanum Experiment – from the initial heavy purple cloud to a flash of light and the final manifestation of a precipitate – replayed the creation of the universe in a glass retort and was instrumental in developing alchemical theory. Because of the toxic fumes generated in the live demonstration, a video recording of the complete experiment will be featured. Samples of the actual ingredients will be available to participants.

During this intensive 3-hour workshop, the chemical mythology of the ancients will be reviewed, and ancient initiatory techniques will reveal a powerful spiritual technology that is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. By connecting at the archetypal level with the Arcana through guided visualizations and meditations on the experimental evidence as well as relevant alchemical drawings, participants will be given the opportunity to experience these universal truths firsthand.

All participants receive a sample jar of purified sulfur, the basic ingredient in the experiment. Also included is a free 70-minute DVD on the operations of alchemy revealed in the Arcanum Experiment and how they were encoded in the Tarot, the Kabbalah, Taoist alchemy, and other Hermetic disciplines. A Certificate of Completion will be issued (2 credits in the Alchemy Study Program – www.AlchemyStudy.com).

The workshop will be conducted by author and practicing alchemist Dennis William Hauck. The experiment was performed at his laboratory in Sacramento, California. Hauck was initiated into alchemy while in graduate school in Vienna and has since translated a number of important manuscripts and published seven books on the subject. His bestselling The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Alchemy (Penguin Alpha 2008) is considered the best introduction to alchemy available today, and his "" The Emerald Tablet: Alchemy for Personal Transformation (Penguin 1999) presents his original research about the mysterious artifact that inspired alchemists for centuries.  His other books include Sorcerer’s Stone: A Beginner’s Guide to Alchemy, Alchemical Guide to Food and Herbs, Secret of the Emerald Tablet:  The Arcanum Experiment. His website is www.DWHauck.com.

The Arcanum Experiment Workshop is Friday, September 16, 2011, from 2:30-6:00 PM at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, CA.  Space is limited, so register early. $55. Reserve your spot at www.AlchemyConference.com

June 16th The Day of Capital Investment

Standard

Image via Wikipedia

Those born on June 16 know how to capitalize on their investments.  The words “capitalize” and “investment” suggest money, but can also serve as metaphors for other areas of life (career and family) , into which those born on this day may put their energies.  Even if they are  met with failure or  stagnation.  June 16 people usually manage to produce something positive from their projects of endeavors, as they so often turn misfortunes to their advantage.  In this respect they are true Capitalists.

Those born on the 16th day of ANY month are ruled by the number 7, and by the planet Neptune.  Those ruled by the number 7 sometimes fail to carry through their ideas and can get out of touch with reality.  Neptune is the planet of dreams, fantasies, and devotional feeling.  A good accountant, bookkeeper, and/or investment banker is worth his weight in gold June 16 people , whose Mercurial Gemini side both needs and appreciate sound advise.

The 16th card of the Major Arcana is The Tower (or Citadel), which in one version of the Tarot deck shows both a King falling from a lightning struck tower and the builder of this tower being killed by a blow to the head.  The Tower symbolizes the impermanence of NOT only physical structures; but, also of relationships or vocations in our lives.  The change wrought are often sudden and swift.  The positive elements of the card include overcoming catastrophe and confronting challenges.  However, The Tower cautions against unjustifiably high and risking destruction t te hands of one’s own invention.  June 16 people are again reminded by the Tarot to be wary of fanciful enterprises, and especially of greed.

Daily Meditation:  Sometimes we must learn to ask for what we want . . . .

The Day of Pleasant Seduction

Standard
The terrestrial planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth...

Image via Wikipedia

June 15 people depend on their charm to get them where they want to go.  Thus, their principal talents are outwardly directed and involve other.  June 15th people must be appreciated for their seductive charms to work.  That is, their particular brand of seduction is overt rather than covert.  Those born on this day have a way of winning others over to their point of view and then bringing the best out of them.  Most June 15 people just want to feel appreciated; only the least evolved are more calculating and have a hidden agenda. Money may be very important to this type of June 15th person.

Those born on the 15th of ANY month are ruled by the number 6 (5+1=6) and 15, and by the planet Venus.  Those ruled by the number 6 are magnetic and sometimes can even inspire awe.  This, as mentioned above, is characteristic of June 15 people.  Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, June 15 people tend to be both Venusian (sensuous) and Mercurial (clever).

The 15th card of the Major Arcana, The Devil, indicates a fear/desire dynamic working where sexual attraction, irrationality, and passion are concerned.  The Devil holds us slave through our need for security and money; he represents our base nature grasping for security; he controls us through the irreconcilable differences which exist in our male/female nature.  With their mind as the aggressive part and their body as the more passive, pleasure-loving, realm, June 15 people attempt a synthesis which can be both accepted and expressed in an easy manner without fear of irrationality–The Devil card.  The positive side of the Devil card is sexual attraction and the expression of passionate desires.  But, the card reminds us that although we are bound to our bodies, our Spirits are free to soar.

Daily Meditation:  Most living things demand constant satisfaction . . . .

The Day of The Gutsy Confrontation

The Planet Mercury as a god according to a Tib...

Image via Wikipedia

The determined and intense people born on June 14 are very sharp in their observations and assessments of what goes on around them.  They are usually strongly opinionated, loyal, and demonstrate great courage when fighting the good fight, the honorable battle.  They are forceful and convincing when presenting their ideas and opinions, and because they understand human nature all too well, capable of mercilessly exposing hypocrisy and pretense . . . .

Those born on the 14th of ANY month are ruled by the number 5 (1+4=5), and by the planet Mercury.  The number 5, as well as the planet Mercury and the sign of Gemini all stand for change, implying a disdain for plodding behavior and a propensity for impulsive action.  June 14 people must learn to master impulsive urges, yet at the same time remain open to gradual (rather than sudden) change when it furthers their cause and that of those dependent upon them.  Fortunately, the number 5 bestows a resilient character which recovers quickly from the hard knocks of life.

The 14th card of the Major Arcana is Temperance.  The figure shown is a guardian angel who protects us and keeps us on an even keel.  This is a wonderful message for June 14 people, and they should heed it.  Those born on June 14th should especially avoid all forms of egotistical excess, and cultivate their innate ability to heal themselves.  Positively seen, Temperance modifies passions in order to allow for new truths to be learned and incorporated into one’s life.  However, it may also indicate negative traits of moodiness, trendiness, and malleability.

Daily Meditation:  Happiness is what we fear the most, peace somehow a luxury which we feel we cannot afford . . . .

The Day of Far-Off Adventure

Standard

Image via Wikipedia

Those born on June 13 are seekers, absorbed in dreams of far-off places and adventures.  Usually, beginning in their youth, their readings and/or fantasies fuel a passion for exploration of foreign worlds that stays with them for a lifetime.  These adventures may involve actual travel to distant lands or be an investigation of mythology dealing with metaphysical worlds, with the past, or with the future.  More highly developed June 13 people often realize their fantasies, whether in business, scientific research or art; the less ambitious born on this day nurse Walter Mitty-like secret desires, and though they don’t actually pursue them, such dreams bring color to their lives.  They must beware, however, that acute frustration may build up due to the disparity between what they want to be and what they are.

Those born on the 13th ANY month are ruled by are ruled by the number 4 (1+3=4), and by the planet Uranus which is both erratic and explosive.  Since June 13 people are so often involved in far-reaching activities, whether of fantasy or reality, they must learn to keep the Uranian part of themselves under control, following their logical Mercury (Gemini’s ruler) instincts.

The planet Uranus indicates change, often violent, and sometimes erratic, unconventional behavior, underlining the extreme nature of June 13 desires.  Although the number 13 is considered unlucky by most, it is rather, a powerful number which carries the responsibility of using its power wisely or inviting self-destruction.

The most misunderstood card in the Tarot is the 13th card of the Major Arcana.  Death, which very rarely is to be taken literally; but signifies a letting go of the past in order to grow beyond limitations, as a metamorphic transformation.  Both this card and the number 4 suggest that June 13 people must guard against   discouragement, disillusion, pessimism, and melancholy.

Daily Meditation:  The grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side . . . .

For more on Alchemy please feel free to eMail me at ANY time.  Thanks for ALL the LOVE and Light  you’ve shown.

As Hermes never tires of telling us, over and over, over and over:  the One Thing and the One Mind are One.  He means that mind and body, Soul and Spirit, male and female, positive and negative, Above and Below, are all One.  All sexes, all races, all species, all life is One.  All life, all death; all heroes, all villains; all angels, all demons; all gods, all devils are ONE.  Unless you find this One within you ¾ what the alchemists called the Stone ¾ you cannot escape the continual dance of becoming that is duality, even for an instant.

That is the message of the Ouroboros. That “All Is One” is the basis of the alchemical principle of changing one thing into another, and alchemical transformation would not be possible unless everything were really One.~Alchemy Guild

The Day of Limit Pushers

Standard

Those born on June 11 have the courage to push beyond boundaries imposed by either society or Nature. Their will to overcome, to go one step further, to break out of limitation is marked. Therefore, those born on this day may be called expansive and somewhat aggressive personalities.
In order to overcome limitations, however, one must recognize them for what they are. To this end, successful June 11 people are students, even scientists, well-versed in their field or specialties.

Those born on the 11th of ANY month are ruled by the number 2 (1+1=2), and by the Moon. Those ruled by the number 2 often make good co-workers, partners, or team players; and the explorative Nature of June 11 people may well be tied in with the concerns of their family, work, or Social Networks. June 11 imaginative powers are enhanced by the influence of the Moon, which also conveys strongly reflective and passive tendencies. The number 11 lend sensitivity for the physical plane of reality; which complements well the mental concentration of the sign Gemini (ruled by Mercury)

The 11th card of the Major Arcana is Justice, a serene seated woman bolding the scales in one hand and a sword in the other. She reminds us of the order of the Universe and that balance and harmony will be maintained in our lives as long as we continue on our path. The positive aspects of this card are integrity, fairness, honesty, and discipline. The more negative traits are low initiative, impersonality, fear of innovation, and grievances.

Daily Meditation:
In his arrogance, man thinks he is capable of destroying Nature . . . .
