Isidore Lucien Ducasse: In Memoriam of Maldoror

April 4th, 2019 by Voxx

In Memoriam: The Father of Surrealism.

Today, I’m celebrating the birth of my favorite poet, Isidore Lucien Ducasse, more famously known as, Le Comte de Lautréamont. During his life, he completed writing only one complete book, but oh what a book it was!

Entitled “Les Chants de Maldoror”, (The Song of Maldoror) is one of the most mind-boggling, verbal hallucination ever written. If you have never read “Maldoror” (as it is often referred to), I suggest buying a copy today, in his honor. (Just scroll down this page, and you’ll see a link to buy the book from “My Book Club” on the right-side column).

For lovers of great surrealist poetry, take a minute to read a sample of this great artist’s work.

You can also read my special page, dedicated to Le Comte de Lautréamont, complete with an assortment of valuable links.

Let me know your thoughts upon reading this truly important, and startlingly original poet’s work. I’m sure that once you read his story, (and his poetry), you will reserve a special place in your library for the late, great Isidore.

New Moon in Aquarius at 15º

February 6th, 2019 by Voxx

The New Moon in Aquarius at 15º (February 4th, 2019) marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Earth Pig. (See corresponding post).

This New Moon is the 11th New Moon of the Solar Year in Western Astrology, and corresponds to the 11th Zodiacal Sign, Aquarius.

Aquarius is the Astrological sign of The Water Bearer, and is associated with Ganymedes, the Cup Bearer of the Gods.

The cup signifies the water of healing. In most Tarot cards, this card is known as “The Star”, and is usually associated with the female healing energy of the Goddess.

The New Moon occurred at on Monday, February 4th at 1:04pm (PST), in Aquarius 15º, with Gemini 19º on the Ascendant, which bodes quite well for Donald J. Trump, the current President of the United States. It gives him a great deal of ability to get his way in most instances, probably to the detriment of his foes in government.

Astro Natal Chart of Donald Trump

Here is what the late master Astrologer, Isidore Kozminsky, has written about these particular degrees of the Zodiac, using his version of the Sabian Symbols, from his book, Astrological Symbols.

The Sabian Symbol for 15º Aquarius: A woman seated on an anchor, a rudder in her hand and an opened book at her feet. This degree denotes the idea of being guided through the many intricacies of life by a faith which cannot be shaken, being born of a philosophy or understanding which sinks deeply into a receptive nature. At this time, minds will be broad and wide in their sympathies, and people feel and know the reality of the way Immortal, even though they may not be able to express it in mere words. It is a symbol of Guidance.

Sabian Symbol for 19º Gemini: A mountaineer, climbing in the darkness in a violent storm which has blown away his cloak and hat, saved from falling down a precipice by a flash of lightning. This degree denotes one whose vocation is one of danger and technique and who is compelled to labor under most uncomfortable conditions. He will be forced to surrender much, and will often find himself in extremely difficult positions. Eventually he will be enabled to recover himself, and be saved from disaster by a miracle of fortunate happenings. It is a symbol of Interposition.

It is interesting that the New Moon occurs at this degree, which conjuncts President Donald Trump’s Natal placement of his Uranus (at 17º), and his North Node (at 20º), both of which occupy his 10th House of Career. Although it 19º Gemini is a problematic degree, it indicates that Trump most likely will get his way in the the personal and political matters which most concern him.

With that said, it will be quite interesting to watch the ensuing development of his plans for the citizens of the United States. Expect Trump to be even more wildly communicative with his talks and commentaries, as the Aquarian/Uranian energies will continue to astound everyone.

Predictions For the New Moon in Aquarius: As the symbol for Aquarius is “The Water Bearer”, we can expect the torrential rains to continue in California. This will be intensified as the Moon and Mercury move into Pisces, soon thereafter. Tsunamis are quite likely, as well as continued major storms, including snowstorms. Many will think it’s “obvious” since this is the type of weather we can expect during Winter, but I’m sure we can all agree that the level of intensity of the rain and snow is beyond the norm.

With the planetary energies as they are, it is a good idea to really think about what you are saying before you speak! It may also be a great time to schedule a Psychic or Astrological session with me to discover how the New Moon in Aquarius will affect you in the upcoming month. I look forward to hearing from you. ~V~

H.P. Lovecraft: An Infernal Birthday

August 20th, 2018 by Voxx

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (Art Copyright by Tim Shay)Celebrating the 127th birthday of the incomparable horror fantasy writer, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, more commonly known as H.P. Lovecraft.

An admirer of Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft spent countless childhood hours reading his books, due to tragic situations regarding both his parents, who were both committed (at different times) to insane asylums in Providence, Rhode Island.

Other than reading and writing horror fiction, Lovecraft was fascinated with Astronomy; However, he was unable to finish his schooling due to a nervous breakdown he suffered before his high school graduation.

Lovecraft lived a solitary life, and rarely ventured outside his home. Despite this, he had a large number of literary friends and admirers, and wound up writing close to 100,000 letters to them throughout his relatively short life.

Of all his works, he is most known for his “Cthulhu Mythos”, a series of stories regarding an ancient chthonic water deity. So fascinating was the first story he wrote about the creature, that his admirers started adding their own versions and continuations through the years.

Some of his friends, admirers and students include some of the greatest writers of the last century, including Robert Bloch (writer of the classic, “Psycho”), and Robert E. Howard (“Conan the Barbarian”), and fantasy writer and poet, Clark Ashton Smith.

Although Lovecraft has inspired many modern films, I personally feel that none have really done his work justice, as his tales are so filled with subjective horror, they really can’t be put to film.

The following links will take you to free versions of several of my personal favorites:

“The Call of Cthulhu”, (the story that started it all.)

“The Shadow Out of Time”, (this one will seriously blow your mind.)

“The Dreams in the Witch House”, (incredibly horrifying!)

“At the Mountains of Madness”, (John Carpenter’s film, “The Thing”, was inspired by this story.

— and Lovecraft’s epic masterpiece …

“The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”

If you’ve never heard of Lovecraft, I encourage you to read his works, and discover his dark genius for yourself. Below is a link to more information about him, and his writings.

Oh, and when you’re reading his stories, it might be best to leave the lights on… not that it will help.
