The Truly Creative Mind

3 Oct

BuckThe truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him…a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.

THE DRACONIC BOWL is now available

29 Jul

Most astrologers recognize the Bowl – one of seven horoscope patterns popularized by Marc Edmund Jones. Many are also familiar with Pamela Crane’s concept of the Draconic chart, wherein the lunar nodes provide a benchmark for assessing individual karma.

By merging both principles, we can identify a unique shape – the Draconic Bowl – where the nodal axis forms the rim of the bowl, and the seven visible planets are bound to one side of that axis. By applying core principles drawn from traditional astrology – Eastern and Western – the author explores the consequences of this powerful esoteric pattern, illustrated with 36 notable nativities.

When considering only the visible planets, approximately 12.5% of us have a Draconic Bowl in our charts. Among famous people, the Draconic Bowl club includes some of the most outstanding artists, athletes, criminals, intellectuals, musicians, politicians and writers of history.

Among astrologers alone, the alumni includes: John Addey, Olivia Barclay, Robert DeLuce, Louis DeWohl, Zipporah Dobyns, Michael Erlewine, Demetra George, Dennis Harness, Marc Edmund Jones, Anthony Louis, Michael Lutin, Alan Oken, Joni Patry, Erin Sullivan, and Alfred Witte.

Independent of charts exhibiting a Draconic Bowl, this book also provides an exhaustive interpretation of what it means to have the nodal axis in any given pair of houses around the chart. As such, it is an invaluable reference work for any astrologer, at whatever level of expertise, who has struggled to understand the consequences of the moon’s nodes, whether they be karmic or mundane.

Purchase a digital copy of THE DRACONIC BOWL at any of these online retailers, paperback available at Amazon only.
