The McBride House: Now You See it, Now You Don't
Date: 2009-07-22   By: Llewellyn
It wasn’t long after moving into the McBride House that I began to notice odd things. Just little things at first—footsteps to begin with, then doors shutting and even opening. I also heard whispering and sometimes a child crying. I heard the sounds every day, usually during the day when Froston was napping.As weeks went by, I could actually hear

The Meanings of Wedding Symbols
Date: 2009-01-16   By: Richard Webster
The act of marriage is full of symbolism. It marks the essential union between male and female to create a nurture new life. The symbolism of wedding customs is shown in the wedding ring, joining of hands, and the presence of small children around the bride. The children are a form of sympathetic magic, and symbolize future children. The custom of
The Moon and Aging
Date: 2009-08-24   By: Leeda Alleyn-Picotti
Could we, barring the unforeseen events that snipped the threads of the Fates, live as long as we wanted? It is important to realize that we not only believe in immortality, we are smitten with it. We pursue it. Human immortality, though, is not all fanciful fairy tale, legend, or myth. From the cells of our bodies, we sense an unrevealed truth
The Moon and Rainfall
Date: 2014-07-08   By: Bruce Scofield
Astrometeorology—the study of correlations between weather and the Sun, Moon, and planets—dates back to the origins of Western astrology some four thousand or more years ago. Because astrology originated in the early agricultural centers of the Near East, there was great interest in knowing what the weather might be like in the
The Moon as Calendar and Timepiece
Date: 2016-01-16   By: Susan Pesznecker
The Moon is a happily familiar sight when we gaze into the night sky. And thanks to cycles of rotation and celestial motion that are both constant and continuous, we needn't simply admire them from afar; we can also use the Moon to judge time of day and the passing of each month. In this article from Llewellyn's Moon Sign Book, Susan Pesznecker illustrates how we can use the Moon as both a calendar and as a gauge of time.
The Moon in Midlife
Date: 2015-06-17   By: Amy Herring
A midlife crisis is a household phrase in Western culture conjuring up images of middle-aged men in red sports cars trying to recapture their youth. Is there more to it than this stereotype? What lies at the heart of the midlife crisis, and does it truly exist? In this excerpt from Llewellyn's 2016 Moon Sign Book, Astrology of the Moon author Amy Herring discusses the psychological purpose of midlife transitions and how your natal Moon Sign can help us anticipate what to expect and to navigate the best outcome of these transitions.
The Moon: A Quick Gauge To Your Daily Emotional Barometer
Date: 2006-05-29   By: Isabelle Ghaneh
What will the weather forecast be today? Will it rain, snow, sleet, or hail? Does it seem to be clear sunny skies, along with a gentle light breeze? To determine what the weather is, you can look outside your window, read the barometer, or check the ...
The Moon’s Progressed Aspects
Date: 2008-12-31   By: Llewellyn
The Moon’s natal sign shows how we instinctively react in overly emotional and stressful situations. Water sign Moons retreat, cry, or maybe cook; earth Moons endure, but clean the house or do the gardening; air Moons intellectualize and talk incessantly about the situation; and fire Moons get angry, shout, and throw things about. All action is
The Mutable Grand Cross from the Perspective of Evolutionary Astrology
Date: 2015-09-30   By: Deva Green
In astrology, a grand cross occurs when four or more planets a form two sets of oppositions that combine to form four squares. These planets are also usually related by mode (Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable). This is a difficult configuration, but there is usually great strength accompanying it to endure and develop character. So, there are three modal grand crosses: the mutable grand cross, the cardinal grand cross, and the fixed grand cross. How does evolutionary astrology, which examines why we are here and which lessons we need to learn, view these configurations? This article will focus on understanding the meaning of the mutable grand cross, from the perspective of evolutionary astrology.  

Do you recall the first time you cast a solitary spell? A real spell. Do you remember the moment when you took power into your own hands, lit flickering candles, burned tendrils of incense, called to the corners, created sacred space, and invoked your intention to manifest in the universe? It was memorable, wasn't it? Like a teenager fumbling... read this article
