IN THIS ISSUE:
Hello all, Happy high summer to you one and all!
This month is, as I expected, way too complicated for me to write an ArkLetter for you right now. In fact, I'm writing every day. But now it's for the sake of tying down all of the lose ends of this giant manuscript that is finally, finally leaving my desk for the future, so that it can arrive in your hands as a gorgeous, amazing fully-fledged tome. Better get your glasses prescription updated, people, you won't want to miss a stitch of this! http://www.tarotarkletters.com/2014/07/announcements-and-calendar.html
II. NewMoon Notes
NewMoon is conjunct Jupiter here at the entrance of the Dry Way. What draws my attention is this coincidence: The three ancient Alchemical principals are the Sun, Moon and Mercury. The two benifics of Astrology are Jupiter (the Greater Benific, teacher of the angels) and Venus (the lesser benific, teacher of the demons). Jupiter and Venus also hold up the Father Pillar on the Kabbalah Tree. This shows us that the most transformative and evolutionary forces in the Solar System are converging along the bottom rung of the Ladder of Lights, blending energies at summer's magical moment. This is where the completion of the Wet Way (Cancer) passes its momentum and energy across the sign line to fund progress along the Dry Way (Leo).
