Purim, Passages to Freedom, Then Journeying On and Beyond

This is a season of remarkable shapeshifts, all along our shore on the Rivers of Life. It hasn't been cold enough to freeze all the waters of rivers and lakes around here, and it hasn't been warm enough to melt the frozen places. Yet big and small fishes are being sought and caught by a variety of projections, swimming every which way. We are happy when two or three fish are caught, prepared, cooked, eaten, digested, metabolized, and finally integrated and incorporated. (This is a dance and a mystery - how airy dances can fix things!) In another weblog, Chammy and I wrote the sections below. Beware of trickster Mercury, night and day, and all around! Soon there will be healing laughter, rites of love, and even mandatory intoxication!

WHAT WE WROTE IN THE CALENDRICS WEBLOG:

The foreground and beginning of night just now, shows one of three better opportunities of our yearly cycle to view Mercury, symbol of powerful energy-flows of shapeshifting, celestical messages, and Trickster's earthy play. The metal Mercury is a beautiful, shiney, sight - and invisible, deadly, poison in ordinary reality! It is one of the three main alchemical elements, key to all transmutations. Mercury readily combines with other elements and molecules, and is now truely hidden everywhere, as an enironmental toxin, changing many lives. Now the planet Mercury may be seen over the horizon, just south of due west, for a while after sunset.

Through the night, the river-constellation Eridanus, still flows blessings under Orion, past our Sun - and humans are still being born under the star Achernar, the end of the River! This is a special time of year for questing new dreams and visions, and facing final, life and death challenges and ordeals! The stars in the river of life look faint to our eyes, but the gifts of life shower upon us from there - then are are painstakingly transformed in the earth into living bread.

Transmutation or shapeshifting all these tricky gifts of sky and earth, we are always creating and forming all things, from rocks to bread, from human beings to wine! These are sacred spacetimes soon to bring on the hidden alchemies of the spiral-dancing twins.
