Neptune is a planet shrouded in mystery, and that is just what it symbolizes. The planetary equivalent of the God of the Oceans dwells in the unseen realm and urges the world to do the same. To Neptune, nothing is impossible, and for that reason, through Neptune's cycles, we learn how to dream and imagine a more enjoyable and exciting world of possibility. Still, there is a heavy sense of duality within it, as the world of fantasy is the ideal environment for tricks and illusions to unfold. In that sense, Neptune trains us to discern real from the illusions of life in 3D. On its negative polarity, in the pursuit of an ideal, Neptune can manifest harmful coping mechanisms, escapism, and abuse of alternate mental states. That being said, it is crucial to learn how to work with these planetary energies properly to balance our inner Neptunes masterfully.
As we have explored in the previous article of this series, "The Symbology of The...
Was there ever a time when you wished you were awake enough to know that you were dreaming? Sometimes, it feels that way. You may have experienced a dream where it felt like everything that was happening was real.
But then when you woke up, you didn't remember anything about it. Many people wish they could be awake in their dream because sometimes, it is the way for their dearly departed loved ones to communicate with them.
Dreams, for some people, are more memorable than others. This is when they can become who they want to be or talk to people they genuinely miss.
Lucid dreaming is the kind of dream where you are fully aware that everything is just a dream. The spectrum of this type of dreaming is very broad.
It can begin when people remember faint details about their dream or that it could be a broad opening of awareness that the body has experienced. Sometimes, it feels like it's real, and they feel it happening even while...

“These words of wisdom, although written by my decaying hand, shall remain imperishable through time; may they be imbued with the medicine of Immortality” -Hermes Trismegistus.
A few miles west of the Nile and just below the tip of its delta lies Sakkara, the necropolis of ancient Memphis, center of Lower Egypt from the days of the pharaohs through to the time of Egypt's Roman conquerors. The ibis, the classy black and white bird in which the God Thoth showed himself, no longer visit the Nile at Memphis, but when the Ptolemies and their Roman successors drank from the holy river, the God's bird still came to its banks in great plenty…... Wisdom is eternal, even if people are not.
While only published in 1908, the Kybalion is a manuscript that claims to be the essence of Hermes Trismegistus's teachings, who -as we’ve talked about before, is believed to be our old pal Thoth. We should be clear that there are several different texts here worth exploring....
Have you heard of the Mercury retrograde? A lot of people fear it because it is infamous for bringing about trouble. While it is the natural process of the cosmos, its occurrence three times a year at three weeks at a time scares people at the thought of what it might bring to their lives.
The first thing you need to learn about the Mercury retrograde science is that the planet Mercury is not traveling backward. It may seem like it is considering that Earth is moving relatively faster than Mercury does.
Because Mercury is the fastest moving planet around the Sun, when it slows down, it seems as if it is moving back to another direction. It is why the name of the phenomenon is Mercury retrograde.
The truth is that the concept of communication on Earth is directly associated with Mercury's movement around the Sun. It is for this reason that people find Mercury retrograde as something scary. The thought of communications getting all...
The outer planets, or alternatively, the planets that we cannot see with the naked eye in the night sky, have been a hot topic in Astrology and other metaphysical studies since their discovery. Compared to the other visible planets, these bodies have only been known to humanity for a relatively short time. With that in mind, we are still currently learning the metaphysical significations of them as we observe their journeys around the Sun through our point of perspective. As we uncover their places in our lives through our group experiences, the existence of contradicting views is imminent. For that reason, this series of articles aims to present all the information available so you can come to your independent conclusions, enabling you to be an active participant in the conversation around these topics. Here we will explore the many different facets of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto by looking at the information astrologers and astronomers have garnered over the years. Still, before we...

Last time we looked at the physics behind the Hermetic principle of vibration. For those interested, that article is here.
Today we are looking at how that principle explains the mechanism behind “magical” or “paranormal” effects. For those interested, this can be explored in more detail in the sixth chapter of The Quantum Hermetica on Amazon, located here.
Previously, we discovered that the vibrations being described by Hermeticism are actually referring to the probability waves of quantum mechanics. Additionally, these waves are found to be behind spacetime itself and not just matter. Literally, everything in physical reality is produced by these waves. Mathematically this has interesting consequences.
Irregular waveforms produced by Fourier series of sine waves, such as the quantum probability waves that generate physical reality.
According to the Schrodinger equation, quantum probability waves are...
“If you are not completely confused by quantum mechanics, you do not understand it” -John Wheeler.
Ah, Quantum Mechanics. A field that incites the curiosity of history’s greatest minds while also having the ability to turn people off at the mere mention of it. Funny how that works. The second someone says the word “Quantum,” You get a massive polarity of people who are either interested and sit glued to the screen, or who attach such significant level “woo” connotations to it that their eyes glaze over… and there seems to be NO in-between.
Despite it being one of the most complex and math-heavy physics fields in history, it's quite funny. It’s also been appropriated by people in the New Age community like Deepak Chopra more than any other science branch. If you look into any New Age group, chances are they have some material in there that references the word “quantum,” whether it’s Chopra’s...

When it comes to talking about aliens, most people have an immediate reaction to the subject, and it's rarely warm and fuzzy. If you're like most people, your only experience with aliens comes from watching movies and television, and that programming is filled with scenes of abduction, horror, suspense, and feelings of being powerless in the presence of a UFO.
How many of you reading this have a fear of aliens? I find this to be a fascinating subject because I once had a fear of aliens too. I didn't want to look at them, talk about them, or even think about them. When I thought of them, I only saw grey aliens' faces and had flashbacks to scary scenes in Unsolved Mysteries episodes from my childhood.
That all changed about four years ago when I moved to Sedona, Arizona. I was participating in an Alpha brainwave training at an institute called Biocybernaut. During the seven days of training, your brain is hooked up to biofeedback...
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of tarot cards? Do you think about how you can shuffle them and play with them? Or do you immediately associate them with predictions of the future?
Perhaps you have thought about all of these when you first think about tarot suits. In truth, before they became known for reading or cartomancy, these cards were first played with. These cards were initially made for amusement.
Those who played with tarot cards before used it alongside a storytelling technique. Each player had to make up a story about the image or symbol shown in the card. The more intricate the symbol, the more interesting the story. In the end, everyone wins.
They were able to play with the cards and share stories with everyone too.
Over time, what used to be just playing cards became the tarot guide. People began to tap on the spirits to send messages through the card. The images used to be just pictures until they became...
