Our Council thus far—Most skookum self-assembling team
Summer Solstice Vessel,
we conjure the alchemical container, and then jump in, hoist sails, paddle together….
welcoming fellow aspiring agents of Liberating Trickster in Nature
For every toxic tyranny -
let's animate a tonic metaphoric reality….
let's gather to inaugurate a tonic metaphoric reality.
A witch holding a plant in one hand and a fan,
Woodcut, ca. 1700-1720( Wellcome)
Danger as incentive:
We want Unions and Plants,
and Plant Unions to help us out…
Humans, by ourselves not sufficient
for the tasks at hand - the entire
of the human cultural interface with Nature,
guided by bio-mimicry -
Nature's Guiding Genius, aka Liberating Trickster.
In Tennessee, Texas, the South etc -
super majority dementors have been
implementing tyrannical sub governments….
Let us be metaphoric First Responders,
guided by planetary
forming alliances with what we love...
We set forth on our Council Journey
Tuesday May 9th 6 pm edt/ 3 pm pdt
Celtic Trickster - Plants and Planets -
welcoming, magnetizing enrollment,
companions with whom to
to Summer Solstice
- courtship to wedding…
that we dedicate to being our best selves…
honoring our deepest dedication...
(We are framing as a kind of
telepathic entheo journey;
even just the name of the plant, and its story,
will bring it into availability in the Council…)
that we partner with what
we love in Nature -
To become good Citizens of the Earth…
The two ghost - hosts of Pluto, stationing in Aquarius, Saturn and Uranus, are quintiled,
al hum du lilah! Our dedication is our freedom!
And I love that Council tis Tuesday May 9th -
We are pre-empting Putin’s war parade scheduled for that date, already being cancelled by Nature,
sucking the chi out of anything
and exhaling into the desirable kind, creative Community story.
“True, certain and most true, that which is above is as that which is below for the performance of the Miracles of the One Thing!…”
(Emerald Tablet of Hermes)
Our first councils are all Sun & friends in Taurus, with Libra rising….
the 2 Venuses conversing….
Libra = Cultural…
Taurus = Participatory Animism Venus...
All be dancing
into place -
at our imminent convening
Mars will be at 23 + Cancer,
which is exactly where the Sun was when Sean was born….
and the Sun and Uranus are where Caroline’s IC and Jupiter be…
(and undoubtedly all drawn to cahoot have humming resonances with the Big Cultural Biological Conversing) (conveyed by the Outer Planets)
So, as Sean and I have conversed… we’re giving this course because we want to take this course…
Each week we gather,
Caroline will proffer the planetary guiding to deepen our craft (“power from dedication.”)
That our craft be our skookum craft in which we navigate the wild
Sean will invoke helpful plant allies…
and then we converse, planets, plants, human allies enrolled for this dedicated adventure.
Etruscan Dancing From the Grotta del Triclinio (Corneto)
Tease into micro-pertinence…
File scouting reports from each week's’ encouraged experimental endeavours…
to improve actual molecular reality in our personal and collective lives...
We already have a super cultivated cool team, enrolled…and we have more room for those guided by the resonant humming of pour own liberating trickster
to join with us on this journey.
We court our best selves, and partners in all realms, ancestral, Flora Fauna Fungi…
On Summer Solstice - we wed what we have been courting...
Wormwood, Artemisia absinthium (Botanische wandplaten)
"As we embark upon our journey, with Mars in Cancer we align with the healthy, nourishing Yang, and
the plants which support the fires of our being: Calamus, growing in the mud at the waters' edge, which burns away fogs of illusion and confusion, and lights the fire of expression in the heart that pours forth as skillful and heartful speech. Wormwood, "defender of the mind." that lights the fire of the spirit and the will -- and yet also brings green, shimmering vision kin to the dancing light of the Aurora. Osha, which opens our lungs and nourishes our root fires and wakens all that has been
hibernating within us."
Culpepper on Wormwood
(Sean shall guide us-to-decode these mysteries:)
"When Mars was free from war, (for he loves to be fighting, and is the best friend a soldier hath) I say,
when Mars was free from war, he called a council of war in his own brain, to know how he should do poor sinful man good, desiring to forget his abuses in being called an infortunate. He musters up his own forces, and places them in battalia. Oh! quoth he, why do I hurt a poor silly man or woman? His angel answers him, It is because they have offended their God, (Look back to Adam:) Well, says Mars, though they speak evil of me, I will do good to them; Death’s cold, my herb shall heat them: they
are full of ill humours (else they would never have spoken ill of me;) my herb shall cleanse them, and dry them; they are poor weak creatures, my herb shall strengthen them; they are dull witted, my herb shall fortify their apprehensions; and yet among astrologers all this does not deserve a good word: Oh the patience of Mars!”

- everything is written everywhere ..
If we simply approach the world
with informed reverent curiosity,
why then we be good Citizens -
in the to and fro, call and response, conversing…
Pluto straight down, we honor roots…
Mars trines Neptune, we honor Cannabis,
and entheogenic allies…
Sun and Uranus
prismatic perspective, on one side,
quintile, 72 degrees, Saturn on the other…
the capacity to open portals between worlds…
(144 degrees betwixt, so generous the proffering…
that we will translate into accessibility…)
Moon in Capricorn quintile Neptune
….Magnetizing metaphor into matter…for Mater!
Venus quintile Chiron, the Centaur-Mentor …
Mentors are the antidote to dementors,
and in the wondrous words of ally Deborah Felmeth,
"We are crafting the future by gazing at the Caravan of our Past Mentors…"
