'Celestial' is Meaningless

Post#1 » Tue May 31, 2016 9:19 pm

Did any of you listen to the interview of Jake Stratton-Kent by Rufus Opus? http://headforred.blogspot.com/2016/05/ ... the+Red%29
It's a... it's an interview that sounds like it was my stoned friend giving it and it has it's good moments and its slow moments. Its now part of the history so it deserves its listen. Make your own judgment.

At any rate, Jake Stratton-Kent makes a comment that struck a chord with me. He said, essentially, that the Celestial spirits, as in the planetary spirits, were traditionally viewed as Underworld spirits. And by that he is suggesting that Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, The Sun, Mercury, and The Moon, the spirits of the constellations and the Fixed Stars are all goetic spirits of the Underworld. Oh and don't forget the spirits of the Zodiac and the Decans and the Mansions of the Moon. All of them are Underworld spirits climbing up out of the depths, across the Ascendant and up into the midheaven, only to sink back into the Abyss in its fall.
It's not a new idea.
I'm curious to hear impressions from the rest of the class.
