Blood-Moon Eclipse Red Alert - Read at your own risk...

And the moon in haste eclipsed her, and the Sun in anger swore
He would curl his wick within him and give light to you no more."
-- Aristophanese, Chorus of Clouds (423BCE)

"I will show portents in the sky and on earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke;
the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood
before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes."

-- The Book of Joel 2:30, Old Testament. (~6-7 century BCE)

Two major lunar activities are happening in the next month, adding to the already stressful "state of the sky" activities of April's grand cross. In 1999 the combo of cross and eclipse was correlated with earthquakes and some other earth crest adjustments. The upcoming Lunar eclipse (always a full moon) occurs right on Passover night, April 15th, which is also ironically, the Last Supper night, while the Solar eclipse takes place on the next New Moon on April 29th. Eclipses are intense, they are a wild-card, forcing us to expect the unexpected, in other words, to surrender and let it go. Traditionally, eclipses are associated with fated events, situations that you have "decided" to experience before you were born but obviously have no recollection of. During eclipses that are as intense as the ones happening this month, free-will leaves the stage in favor of destiny and the three fates. Some events must transpire whether we like it or not. Eclipses are whirlpool of incidents that guide us down the rabbit hole into a new reality we that we are forced to accept. It is during eclipses that we learn to receive and accept our destiny. 


"The Fates," by Jane Yolen. Art by Oliver Hunter.

Mother Nature herself reacts to eclipses: birds stop chirping, crickets turn silent. Thoughts stand still awaiting to see what happens next. Eclipses are the earthquakes of the soul...  

Let's start, as one should always, with the meaning of the name. Eclipse comes from the Greek word ekleipsis, which means, failure, or fail to appear. Similar to the word disaster (dis-star: against the stars) it signifies that something goes wrong with the light of the Sun and the Moon, our celestial parents, we humans suddenly feel like a child whose mother and father left us alone after a violent argument. On the day of the eclipse we experience obstacles that prevent us from "seeing" the light. In those periods, we are left in the dark, in ignorance and therefore, subjects to our worst fears. 


Julie Jacobson / AP

Throughout history, the eclipse herald a time of change, transformation. No longer was it possible to conceal or hide the truth. The blocked light of the moon or the sun caused change, death and resurrection. It serves as a bridge from darkness to light, from Hades to Olympus from the subconscious to awareness, from ego to the higher-self. 

What is an Eclipse?

Every month we experience a full moon (when the earth is positioned between the Sun and the Moon) and a new moon (when the moon and the sun are conjunct) however, on eclipses (happen roughly 4-7 times a year) the Moon and the Sun are aligned perfectly that they block each other's light. It so happened that the Moon and the Sun's disk size is precisely the same as seen from the earth. I see it as a symbol that we love "mommy" and "daddy" the same. On the Lunar eclipse, the earth obstructs the Sun's light, preventing it from reaching the Moon, therefore, the moon lacking the Sun's brightness, appears dark. On the Solar eclipse, the Moon stands between the earth and the Sun blocking the Sun's rays from reaching us. Eclipses, therefore are the results of the cosmic trinity dance. A threesome made in heaven. 


Astrological meaning of eclipse:

Eclipses are storytellers. They weave engaging, suspenseful, albeit scary, synchronicities into a tapestry of stories and events that covers the span of 6 months. What does that mean? Around April 15 (Lunar eclipse in Libra and Aries) and April 29 (Solar eclipse in Taurus), events relating to relationships, leadership, war (Libra-Aries axis) as well as finance, security, values, self-worth, and art (Taurus) will force you into action. Situations will prompt you into doing things you have never done before, say and feel things you never thought you will, and experience an external manifestation of your inner shadow. Mythologically speaking, we become werewolves, howling, biting, scratching and yet not remembering or paying attention to what we are doing. In the werewolf stories, they never remember what happened to them while they were in wolf mode. Why do you think the only thing that can kill a werewolf is a silver bullet or silver knife? Silver is the metal associated in alchemy and astrology with the Moon. They are creatures of the Moon who gives them life and death. In a way, we all become creatures of the night around the eclipses. Here is a link to a prior newsletter I wrote on the eclipse of 2011. 



The length of minutes of the eclipse corresponds to the months it affects us. Since this eclipse will take about 6 min, the influence of the eclipse will last almost half a year. 


Add the Grand Cross to the mix and...

"At midday a darkness fell over the whole land, which lasted till three in the afternoon; and at three Jesus cried aloud, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?'"
--The Gospel of Mark (c.66-70 CE) 

Some believe the passage above indicates that Jesus was crucified on an eclipse. Since it happened around Passover (last supper), it must have been a similar eclipse in Libra-Aries or Taurus. Another similarity is that the second part of April 2014 is marked by a grand cross in the sky, peaking on April 21-22 and sandwiched right between the Lunar and Solar Eclipse. Lovely. The cross adds tension and stress to the mix. It effects leaders, heads of corporations, CEO, politicians and can lead to war and aggression especially considering that Mars, the planet of war, is retrograding, thus adding a great deal of misunderstandings and over-defensiveness. Accidents, people losing jobs, skirmishes in borders, arguments, separations etc. My take on the cross is that it is an old symbol that describe our mortal coil. We are all crucified on the nexus between the masculine and feminine (action versus reception) and the spiritual and material (divine opposite to mundane). We all have to navigate these four aspects and maybe that is why we have four chambers in our hearts to enable us to contain all of these aspects of being, like the four letters of the DNA, or the tetragrammaton of the name of God.

Venus, thanks Goddess, the ruler of the eclipses

Every eclipse has a ruler and since Venus happens to be the governess of both Libra and Taurus, the Solar and Lunar eclipse are said to be influenced by her. It is also very auspicious that Venus is in Pisces, her sign of exaltation, where she is in full power extending her glamour to all corners of the earth. Pisces, therefore can help us overcome and mitigate the hardship of the fiery eclipses. The toolkit of Pisces include: creative visualization, dance, yoga, meditation, dream, music, poetry, movement and imagination. Venus, strengthened by her position in Pisces is benevolent and is associated with peace, harmony and diplomacy. She is, after all, the goddess of love. This means that you can weather the storm far better with a partner on your side and if you don't have one, perchance Venus and her eclipses will break the spell of loneliness and bring out of the shadows your prince/princesses charming.  Believe me, with the state of the sky this months EVERYTHING is possible...      

Where can you see the eclipses?

A general rule: if you can see the eclipse you are more influenced by it. The Lunar eclipse will be seen by more people as these types of eclipses are visible to anyone who can see the moon. Most of North and South America will be able to see the lunation while Europe and Asia will be spared. To the Virgos among you who like to know things precisely: It will start April 15th 3:07 a.m. EDT / 12:07 a.m. PDT and end at 4:25 a.m. EDT / 1:25 a.m. PDT on April 15th. The moon will be red blood (called Blood Moon) and it is not surprising as it is taking place during the month of Aries ruler of blood.  



The Solar eclipse on April 29th 3:52 UT and will be less visible as it covers a smaller area (see below). While Indonesia will not be able to see the movie Noah (due to a boycott) they will get to see the eclipse as will Australia. The penguins in Antarctica will also be able to witness the eclipse and I hope it does not get their internal GPS messed up in their long march, poor souls. 



To sum things up:

The Lunar eclipse on April 15th will be a bit more challenging to the daughters of Eve as well as those born near or on the eclipse (April 13-18 and October 15-19). Since the cross is a cardinal one, Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer will also feel the pressure more than other signs but also be the superheroes that help us deal with it. For those of you who live and work in the US, since April 15th is the Tax-Day, make sure you file your taxes in full and with integrity...

The Solar eclipse on April 29 will be felt more by leaders, self-employed, CEO. politicians, and will be more challenging to the sons of Adam as well as people born April 27-May 1 and Oct 29-Nov 2nd. So what happens if you are a woman and a CEO...well...it's going to be tough for you and your employees who have to deal with you. Just remember, don't become the eclipse of others and avoid general nastiness... 

To help you deal with the cosmic currents focus your energy on: acceptance, surrender, extending help to others, avoiding being reactive, looking at the signs, avoiding unnecessary battles, sleeping longer than usual, yoga, meditation, cardio, exercise, detox, long baths with salt water, and just being in general nice to fellow humans and sentient beings. 

Have a wonderful ride and don't take life personally, it has nothing to do with you...  

PS
Added a new Kabbalah weekend retreat August 15-17 which I will lead with my friend, acrobat and choreographer Bianca Sapetto. Please check out the link and join us as you plan your summer getaways...


Peace,
Gahl

Oh No(ah)! Boycott the Boycott

“No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: He is always convinced that is says what he means.”
–George Bernard Shaw

“It is…clearer than the sun and moon that the Pentateuch was not written by Moses”
–Spinoza. 

I love the Old Testament, also known as the Hebrew Bible, planet earth’s bestselling book translated to over 2400 languages. I like it so much that I started teaching workshops on the wonderful mischievous, sexy, hilarious, absurd, and transformative tales of the good book and how they can help us lead a better life.  I believe that what make the stories of the bible so captivating is that most of its heroes and heroines are flawed and imperfect. Take King David, for example, known as “the beloved” who was a “man after God’s own heart” and yet he was a liar, a thief, an adulterer and a murderer (already four of the Ten-Commandments out the window). In other words, he was human, like you and me, but he was also the paragon of the bloodline of the messiah according to both Jews and Christians. How come? Because the bible’s principle creed is that no one is perfect. Everyone, even the best of us can sin, and therefore, everyone can redeem themselves. The stories of the bible are a string of redemption tales, one linked to another, one leading to the other. The Bible gave Hollywood the greatest storytelling tools that helped it conquer the hearts and imagination of people across the globe: the Great Character’s Arc, the transformation of the hero. And this leads me to the subject of this email, a different kind of Ark, Noah’s…

Bans and Pettiness
Noah was a righteous man, and he walked with God, so why are all these fundamental Muslims and Christians so upset with him and the way he is depicted in the newly released Darren Aronofsky adaptation? Why do they boycott and censor him in Qatar, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia (Egypt’s has not decided yet and the jury is out since these pious men are too busy sentencing hundreds of people for the murder of the same person).



I don’t get these censors who have no respect towards their own people, thinking that the watching a few hours of movie will corrupt their citizen’s soul sentencing them to burn in the flame of hell. Why would the men in the Middle-East, Malaysia, and Indonesia be so alarmed by an artistic interpretation of stories written by a bunch of Israelis (who are themselves boycotted from most of these countries) a few thousand years ago? I do not understand why these censors feel that Allah will be offended from movies, pictures, songs or You-Tube videos? What has happened to monotheism? If “God is great,” all mighty, and all powerful, can’t he take care of himself? Why does he need clerics and mullahs and suicide bombers to defend him and his fragile honor? How could they believe in a God with such a small ego that anyone, anywhere, can shutter and break so easily? And it’s not only Muslims, some Christian groups in the United States, also exhibited Taliban mentality and expressed their concern with the artistic interpretation of the movie makers. The marketing team of Paramount Pictures had to bow to the will of the National Religious Broadcasters and add a disclaimer saying the movie Noah is only inspired and not based on the story of Noah. Wait, what??? Since when was the biblical account of Noah is a real story that something can be based on?

The Secret
Let me tell you a secret known to scholars since 1853: the story of Noah as it is told in Genesis 6 - 9 is actually stolen, or to be politically correct, inspired by an older story that was very popular in the Near-East, the “Gone with the Wind” of the ancient world. The story tells of a man building an ark to save creation from a deluge. What? You thought Hollywood invented end-of-the-world stories? It was a very familiar motif known to the writers of the bible. It goes like this: man meets God, man builds big boat, God makes rain, mankind survives, end titles.  



The biblical authors changed the names and added their ingenious, timeless, storytelling abilities and of course copyrighted it by insisting that Moses wrote it.  The original flood story was written about 1000 years before the Torah as part of a poem called the “Epic of Gilgamesh.” (c 1700BCE) In that story, a chap called Utnapishtim or Atrahasis (I agree it is an unpronounceable name and Noah is a far better choice for a protagonist’s name) is contacted by the god Enki and instructed to build an ark that can save the animals while the gods bring down a flood. The ark eventually landed on Mt. Nimush in the Kurdish area of modern day Iraq. Familiar, ha?  Those of you who do yoga instead of going to temple or church don’t have to feel left out. An ancient story in the Satapatha Brahmana tell of a character called Manu, the first man, who is asked by Vishnu to build a big boat in order to survive the flood. There is even a yoga pose named after that ark: Vavasana (Nav means boat). 

The Boy’s Boycott
As you can see, the Bible’s many authors, like Shakespeare, borrowed stories from other sources and retold them in a far more entertaining way. The “logic” of the censors in the Muslim world was that since Noah is mentioned in the Koran, the depiction of his image in the media is forbidden. But Moses and Jesus are mentioned in the Koran as well so how come Indonesia didn’t censor Mel Gibson’s S&M adaptation of the Passion of the Christ or Spielberg’s Prince of Egypt?  (Malaysia actually did by the way).

Christian Muslim Solidarity
Some pious Christians complained to Paramount Pictures that Noah should not be seen drunk in the movie. He was a righteous man, they claim, and kids will get the wrong ideas. Well, if you actually read the bible you will find that indeed, Noah did have a drinking problem. They might also be shocked to know that according to Genesis 9:21 Noah not only drank wine (after he planted a vine) but was also so drunk he lay naked in his tent, stupefied but somewhat content. What I am trying to say is that for centuries religious fundamental Jews, Christians and Muslims have kidnapped God, stolen the bible and abused it, keeping us ignorant of how wonderful the book really is by telling us what passages to read and what chapters to skip. It is time we reclaim the book from these zealots and start seeing the book not wholly as holy but as a wonderful storytelling machine that inspires, like a true work of art, creativity and interpretations. After all, the word Amen used by Jews, Christians and Muslims at the end of prayers, means in Hebrew both believe and art
 


Stay dry and go watch whatever they tell you not to, read whatever they boycott and listen to whatever they try to silence. God is One and therefore is everywhere, even in what they censor, block or hide. Give God a chance…

Hope you can join me at Esalen April 18-20 for a weekend retreat on the stories of the bible. From Jacob and his Lucha Libre match to the forbidden love affairs of David and the amazing story of Ruth, a book most likely written by...a woman on women with some advice of how to seduce men....
Peace,
Gahl

Spring (Equinox) into Action

Spring Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere) 

This email contains an invisible spiritual attachment. To open it, you need only take a deep breath...

The attachment contains wild flowers, light, energy, action, initiation, shedding layers of fear, enthusiasm and a sense of hope. In other words, SPRING!!! The email was programmed to land in your inbox right on the Spring Equinox, if you are in the Northern Hemisphere that is.

Due to gravitational forces (or celestial love affair) between the Moon and the Sun, the earth is tilted 23.5 degrees which makes the four seasons part of the music of life. Astrology was conceived in the attempt to understand, explain and guide us through these four stations represented by the four cardinal signs: Aries for Spring, Cancer of Summer, Libra for Fall and Capricorn for Winter. As we cross the border between Winter and Spring, the day become longer than the night. We are shifting from being introverted to extroverted as we mimic nature and her resurrection from the slumber of winter.



March 20th, Spring Equinox, is the moment we move away from the Yin half of the year, represented by the dark, cool, moist and feminine night, into the six month ruled by Yang, which is bright, hot, dry and masculine. Looking deeper at the circular cyclical symbol of the Yin-Yang, one can find the esoteric meaning of the Zodiac wheel and the distribution of light and dark, day and night throughout the year. The white wave represents Yang and day while the black wave symbolizes Yin and night:




The Spring Equinox has long been an auspicious day, In fact, it was chosen to be the international storytelling day! So today you must make sure to tell as many stories as possible. When someone asks you "How are you?" don't just shoot back the regular old "Fine, and you?" Instead, connect to the ancient tradition of storytelling dating back to the "domestication" of fire tell a tale, an anecdote, a synchronicity. 

Spring or Vernal Equinox (Equi=Equal, Nox=Night) has and still is celebrated by the Celts, Saxon, Hebrews (Passover), Roman (Feast of Cybele), Japan (time of family reunion), Ancient Egyptians, Iranian New Year (Nowruz), Cambodian New Year, Thailand's Songkran, and recently declared the worldwide Earth-Day. March 20th is also the astrological new-year, marking the birth of God and Goddess' firstborn: Aries, the sign Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. Representing the archetype of the shepherd, the leader, the initiator, and liberator, Aries is a monist sign, believing that everything comes from the One. No wonder Monotheism was developed and spread by Aries folks. The great mythology researcher, Joseph Campbell, a true Aries, coined the term Monomyth, describing the similar Hero's journey found in diverse mythologies around the world (Hero with a Thousand Faces). Spring, therefore, is the season of unity and oneness. 

Since humanity begun domesticating plants, spring became associated with the seed, the initiation of life and the liberation from the restrictive, forbidding and dangerous winter. People around the globe celebrated the arrival spring, thankful they have survived the White Witch of Winter's cold and ruthless reign. 

 

Mars, the ruler of Aries and namesake of March, was also the god of vegetation and seeds and in the Genesis story of creation on the third day, (Martes in Spanish, named after Mars), God created plants and trees:

11. Then God said, " Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with seed in them, on the earth "; and it was so.

The celebration of barely, one of the first cultivated grains, which is also one of the first to awaken from the winter sleep, was always associated with Spring Equinox. It was the first offering of food given by Spring, a sign of hope. The barely festivities morphed into Passover that later gave birth to Easter. When Easter united with the worship of the goddess Eástre (dawn) she brought as her dowry the hare and colorful eggs.

The spring stories share common themes:

  1. They start in a period of oppression, darkness and slavery representing winter. In the story of Passover it is Egypt (in Hebrew Egypt means narrow straits). In the Chronicles of Narnia Pharaoh is replaced by the evil White Winter queen that freezes and stagnates life. In the story of Easter it is the Pharisees who plot to keep Jesus away from his followers. 
  2. Enter a savior: Moses, Christ, Muhammad. The superhero (usually possess magic) breaks the shackles not shunning away from blood (ruled by Aries) and heavy sacrifice (the sacrificial lamb=little Aries). 
  3. A battle and or a journey takes place. A displacement, move from slavery to liberty. Receiving a heavenly gift (Torah, Koran, resurrection) that helps transform us from victims to warriors. 
  4. Arriving to your destination: a symbolic "Promised Land." 
In the next few days it is recommend you look deep into the last 6 months and find out what has been oppressing you. Who was your Pharaoh, your evil White Queen? What were you a slave to? Then construct your own version of Exodus, invoke your higher-self, your inner guide to serve as your liberator, your Moses or Christ. Once you have found that part of you, go on a journey for 40 days from the equinox and offer a sacrifice, maybe a detox, or a strong regiment that can represent your 40 days in the desert that Jesus endured or 40 years the Hebrews traveled in Sinai.  In that period you will get some gift, a message, a synchronicity that will lead you to a better life and your own Promised-Land. 

Important events in the 40 days journey:
  • March 30th - New Moon in Aries, a great time to start a new project or a new endeavor. It is also the Biblical New year.
  • April 1st: Fool's Day - It is the day of the Joker, unpredictable events, look for funny wild synchronicities. A day where you are asked to make a leap of faith. JUMP!
  • April 8th - The Grand Cross. We are all going to get to know the Cross. Christian or not, we will get to carry the cross formed between Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, and Mars in Libra, the very signs I mentioned earlier as being the channels of the seasons. As Prince says in his song "The Cross:"                   Black day, stormy night
    No love, no hope in sight
    Don't cry, He is coming
    Don't die
    without knowing the cross…
       
                                                                                                                          This formation peaks April 22nd: crazy driving, intense emotional releases, quitting jobs or getting fired, computer issues, revolutions, wars, relationships ending and beginning, very busy ERs and police/fire stations, angered public figures, and agitated or overwhelmed people/animal and...aliens. You can see the cross marked in red below:                                                                              
  • April 15th - Powerful Lunar Eclipse. The moon will appear red and bloody. I will send another email before. It is an intense day, a wild-card, a generator or synchronicity pitting "I" versus "Thou" in the ring of life. So if you are in work in the USA, being that it is Tax Days, take heed when filing your taxes and be honest and organized. 
I wish you a great Astrological New year and may you find your promised land. If you are in New York, I hope to see you in person between April 1-10 and please join me on my weekend retreat at Esalen on the Bible stories, April 18-20...

Peace
Gahl

Nov 3rd Solar Eclipse


Traveling Schedule:

If you are looking for a place to celebrate spring, please join us to the StoryTelling the Bible weekend retreat at Esalen April 18-20. We will explore, expose and unveil sexy, juicy, and meaningful stories from the bible and reclaim them from the same fanatics who kidnapped God for their own political agenda.  

Nov 3rd Solar Eclipse

On Nov 3rd we will experience a powerful New Moon Solar eclipse in Scorpio. You can argue that astrologically speaking, the real Halloween is happening on this weekend. Since Scorpio rules Death and her younger sister Resurrection, as well as the occult, and magic, this weekend is a time where the membrane separating our different lifetimes is very thin...the thinnest it has been in 19 years! I am pretty sure most have you experienced more incidents of deja-vu, lucid dreaming, deeper meditation and perchance some messages sent over space and time from your future lifetime to your current one, cheering you to go on and continue your journey towards greater consciousness.

Every degree in the zodiac was given a symbol called Sabian Symbol and the one bestowed on this eclipse is: "A late comer to an embassy ball surveys the scene before making an an entrance." It does not mean you will get an invitation from the Foreign Minister, however, I think it means that you might find yourself in a situation like the bar scene in Star Wars. You might feel like Han Solo, checking a new environment with people or energies of different kind mixing together. Some spies, assassins, shamans, healers, witches, wizards, mafiosos, all the regular guest stars of Scorpio activities.
 
This weekend will initiate (New Moon) a story-line in your life that will expose and unveil (eclipse) an aspect of your life kept hidden (Scorpio) that is associated with intimacy, sexuality, passion, finance, your partner's talents and assets, insurance, taxes, inheritance and death. Skills as well as memories from past lifetimes might flood you. Maybe a meeting with someone you knew in prior reincarnations. Since the eclipse happened to fall right on Saturn, the Lord of Karma, it will help us get over karmic obstacles and bring us face to face with our lessons for the next 19 years. Saturn in Kabbalah is called the Rectifier, associated with your personal Tikkun (fixing your soul) as well as Tikkun Olam (fixing creation). Since Scorpio is the sign of healing, therapy and transformation, this afford us, on both a personal and social level, a great opportunity to heal, fix and rectify our lives.  

I recommend going back 19 years ago, since on Nov 3 1994 we had a similar Solar Eclipse in Scorpio that initiated a lunar cycle in your life that has now come to an end and ready to begin anew. For me it was studying psychology that lead me to doing charts and for you?

Have fun surfing the waters of Scorpio!

Peace from Kona, HI

I am back in LA! However, if you are in New York, Washington DC, and Vancouver, I will be paying you a visit in the next two months, giving workshops (see above) as well as private astrology readings and past lifetime regressions. Please email me at Gahl@CosmicNavigator.com for more info. 

Dates to look out for:
Sep 4-5: New Moon in Virgo and Rosh HaShanah: The new moon of Rosh Hashanah according to Kabbalah is the birthdate of Adam and Eve and therefore, humanity. A couple of years ago I made two videos about Humanity's chart. Sep 5th is a good day to start a new project relating to work, diet, and service. Great time for editing!
Sep 11: We have a short lived six pointed star today, called Magen David, where six planets form a perfect protection shield: Moon (emotions), Mars (action), Uranus (innovation), Jupiter (luck), Chiron (healing) and Saturn (karma). Make sure you make use of it. I wish it was there same date on 2001 :(  
Sep 18: Harvest Full Moon. Whatever you have planted in springtime, you shall now harvest. 


Pictures Tell Stories...

Here are some snapshots from my travel and a little story they unveil:

ZURICH:

One of my favorite cities on the planet is Zurich. I find the people easy going, friendly, punctual and polite. Yes, it is expensive but you get more than your money's worth. I think places like Los Angeles, London, and New York can learn a great deal about public transportation from Zurich. But the greatest thing about Zurich is the Limmat river. It is one of the only city-crossing river that you can actually jump into and swim. I got a great place to stay in Zurich where my backyard was the Limmat river: 

One day, on my way back from teaching a class at AirYoga, I crossed Limmatstrasse and encountered an amazing scene. There was a yellow truck with images of women's silhouettes and flowers painted on it. At first it looked like a food-truck but coming closer, I saw three women dressed a bit too sexy, come out of the truck and head to the street corner.I came a bit closer and, yes, they are professional, for sure, prostitutes. I looked into the truck and there was an old lady giving a farewell hug to the last of the ladies sending her with a blessing off to work. It was so touching to see the older woman, not judging or reprimanding the younger lady, but rather blessing her and handing her a cup of tea. She smiled and waved goodbye to her girls as if saying "I am here in the truck, waiting for you, be safe..."

With my luck, the girls' corner was located right at the bridge that led across the river to my place. And every night thereafter, I passed by them and after a few days I was greeted with neighbourly smiles. One night I noticed something that was so Zurich, I had to take a snapshot of it. You can see below, the poster of an old man, wearing traditional Swiss clothes, holding his finger to his mouth, asking us to be discreet while beneath him, seducing bypassers are the girls of the "Lady-Truck." And yes, I know the old man is actually an advertisement campaign for...Swiss Cheese...but the juxtaposition was just too perfect, like a swiss clock... 


SOFIA:

Day after day, walking from my hotel to the place where I chart my Bulgarian friends, I pass by my favorite cafe, saying "hello." I them walk around the corner and say "how do you do?" to the woman who sells me bananas and then I pass by the dog in the window. To make it mythologically correct, I will assume she is a doggess.  Why? Well, that would be coherent with what Near-Eastern historian and biblical scholars call the motif of "The Woman at the Window." 


This ancient motif was mistaken by many scholars at first, to be related to prostitutes (see above the Zurich story) however, modern scholars attribute the "woman at the window" theme to be an aspect of the goddess Inanna/Ishtar. In Sumeria her name was Aba-shushu "(One) Who Leans in (or Looks out of) the Window." In the bible we hear of Michal, wife of king David, who watched her husband rave naked in front of the holy Ark through her window. We also hear of Jezebel, wife of Ahab, who once she learned she was defeated, put some makeup on and off the window she went into her death. Who knows, maybe the fairy-tale theme of the princess in the tower originated from the Woman at the Window.

The doggess in the city of Sofia did not bother putting on makeup, she does not need it as she is wonderfully beautiful without it, but she did speak her mind, barking at people she did not like or dogs she felt were not behaving in a dogly godly manner.  

ESALEN, CA

Just a thank you note to all that came to the Kabbalah weekend at Esalen. It was such a success that Esalen asked me to do another similar retreat at the same time next year and we already secured the dates (Aug 15-17 2014).

Bianca Sapetto led us through some fun movement exercises she picked up from working with Cirque du Soleil and other world renowned choreographers as well as from her own experiences. It made it more fun to bring the Tree of Life into our lives not only through lectures and meditation but also via our body.  



The next picture is my favorite sign in Esalen. I thought it can be a great T-Shirt along with the LAX famous assertion: "Do not leave your car and personal belongings unattended..." 


The last exercise of the workshop in Esalen: 


Our walk in the forest as part of the work on the sphere Beauty. Here is a bridge shot of some of the participants in the retreat:
