Sweet is the lore which Nature brings,
Our meddling intellect
misshapes the beauteous forms of things
we murder to dissect.
Enough of science and of art:
Close up those barren leaves;
Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.
— William Wordsworth, from The Tables Turned

I lay no wood, Brahman, for fires on altars,
Only within burneth the flame I kindle.
Ever my fire burns, ever composed of self,
. . . . and the heart is the altar;
The flame thereon — this is a man’s self well tamed.
Samyuita-Nikaya Upanishad I
I just returned from the amazing astrology conference (UAC) in Denver together with 1500 other astrologers from 35 countries. Among the activities was a Presidential Panel with some of the wisest astrologers in the world. Click above to have a look at the media reaction, which ranges from the idiotic to the perceptive.

From CGJung, His Myth:
"Somewhere there was once a Flower, a Stone, a Crystal, a Queen, a King, a Palace, a Lover and his Beloved, and this was long ago, on an Island somewhere in the ocean five thousand years ago . . ., Such is Love, the Mystic Flower of the Soul. this is the Centre, the Self . . . Nobody understands what I mean, only a poet could begin to understand."
