Fee: $10 members $15 guests

Time: 7 pm 


Like sands through the hourglass, we weave history and astrological insight into the paths humanity has traveled. Civilizations rise and fall, and they do so in step with the heavenly mandate. Beginning with the origins of agriculture in the Fertile Crescent, we wind our way through western culture beginning with Sumerian roots on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, then watch as the Egyptians emerge from the floodwaters of the Nile. Chapters from the Old Testament bear witness to trials by fire, while the Greeks and Romans vie with the Celts for supremacy. They all seized their moment in time, until absorbed by Christianity and Islam in cadence to the celestial beat. All in all, an amazing saga from across the centuries, and a wonderful example of the power of the stars at work.


Saturday, March 5:  Workshop - STARS, MYTHS AND DRAGONS  (see March 12 also)

Place: Linda Skempris 8043 Causeway Blvd. S. St. Petersburg 727-347-4149

Fee: $25 members or $30 non-members  Lunch included.

The symbol of the dragon is the vestige of a once world wide code of information found in the stars. Why is it that this obviously mythical creature is found on every hemisphere of the planet, across various cultures and throughout time? Whether as Ti'amat of the Babylonians, Ladon of the Greeks, the Imperial Dragon of China, Thunder Bird of the Lakota or even the 'feathered serpent' or flying snake of the Mayans of Central America, we find this image omnipresent around the globe. If the Dragon is a fictional creation, then what is the source of its universal appeal? This presentation retells a number of creation myths and offers a delightfully simple answer to this intriguing question.

In this workshop we will tie together the Old Testament, which sets the stage for looking at the shift between the Age of Taurus and the Age of Aries, and the coming of Abraham. Many of the scenarios which the Old Testament is reacting to are older, Age of Taurus symbols, such as Aaron making the Golden Calf and Moses coming back down from the mountain and freaking out (Moses got it, Aaron didn't).


In each age the lives and manners of men are different and God has established for each age a definite span of time, which is determined by the circuit of the Great Year.  Whenever this circuit comes to an end and another begins some marvelous sign that it becomes at once clear…that men of a different character and way of life have now come into the world and the gods will be either more or less concerned with this new race than they were with their predecessors.  All sorts of changes occur, they say, as one age succeeds another.


We will also tie together the 'End of Time' traditions of various cultures, looking specifically at some Greek Myths, Hindu, Norse, Native American and Mayan sources.  How does Hercules solve the riddle of cleaning out the stables in a single day; stables that had been accruing filth for a thousand years?   What happens in the battle between Thor and the Great World Serpent? How does this compare with Biblical tales of The Dragon struggling to prevent the Cosmic Mother from giving birth to the child, and why were the Hopi so guarded about preventing the Great Serpent from rolling over?
