A new Taurus Moon softens the edges of our intensified lives. This is energy which has no interest in mind play but which reminds us to nourish ourselves on the sound of rain falling, to cherish the feel of cool dirt between our fingers as we settle seedlings into the earth. Taurus wants to harvest the rhubarb, caress the dough and sit late in the afternoon at the kitchen table feeling the sun on its skin while the baking pie fills the room with smells so exotic and primal we know better than to try to capture the sensation with thought.
I’ve never been one to follow the traditional norms of societal infrastructure. I don’t believe in the all too familiar path of graduating high school, going to college, obtaining a bachelor’s degree, then pursuing a 9 to 5 based in whatever field is willing to hire at that point simply to use that income to accrue more debt. It just doesn’t sound like a plausible lifestyle that’s conducive for how I live my life or see the world for that matter.
Scorpio, which has always counseled us to honor instinct, will deliver notes written in invisible ink as it takes over Sunday night’s sky in the guise of a full moon. The emotional riddles unraveling inside of you cannot be solved with your intellect. When the mind attempts to control the feelings bubbling up to the surface, you will only feel out of control. But if you can drop away from a need to make literal sense of things for a few days, you’ll find that you have released yourself from an old fear pattern which you’ll never be able to access directly through your head.
Alan Watts is a modern day philosopher best known for interpreting and popularizing Eastern teachings pertaining to philosophy and spirituality to a western audience. He wrote the popular book called “The Way of Zen” which became one of the most popular books on the subject of Buddhism. Alan Watts lectures are often found on youtube with millions of views with “What do you desire?” being one of the most popular. Alan Watts quotes are widely available on the internet popularized thanks to his genuine approach to connecting with humanity. We begin with the first quote below regarding the rigidity of man/woman. “No one is more dangerously insane than one who is sane all the time: he is like a steel bridge without flexibility, and the order of his life is rigid and brittle.” – Alan Watts.

Welcome to the first issue of Ascend Academy. Brace yourselves, we are about to delve into the mother load of all spiritual concepts. This article reveals the meaning behind the 7 Hermetic Principles of truth, directly from their source, The Kybalion. If you have not read the introduction, please do so HERE.

Welcome to the second issue (and Part 1) of Ascend Academy. If you haven’t read the introduction or preface articles, please do so! Today we will begin our ascent up the spiraling staircase that is the 7 Phases of Mastery. This spiritual framework is designed to unlock the potential within every human being by applying an understanding of self that is not limited by any particular belief structure and by providing hands on techniques and practices that raise your awareness of internal as well as external energies. Unlike our last article, each new issue will be focusing on a new phase so that we can glean a complete understanding of each set of concepts presented. This is the phase of Geometry, in which we learn of how Consciousness moves and interacts with itself through it’s various manifestations and conceptual archetypes. Find yourself a pen and paper, as you will…
Welcome back spiritual seekers, this is the third article and Ascend Academy’s Phase 2, Creative Energy. This is a very large topic, and as a result, this will be quite a lengthy and informative article. Take a deep breath and get ready for some mind blowing revelations. Feel free to take a break about halfway through and come back to it, as there are a lot of concepts to cover. If you’ve missed the prior articles please refer to the Introduction where you can click on the articles in order. In the reality beyond time, space, beliefs, and all manifestations, only two notions exist. That of internal nature or Consciousness, and that of external form being expressed as limitless Void, which is an infinite fractal MIRROR of Consciousness. These two energies are expressions of Source, known to us as the original concepts of Male and Female energy respectively.
Namaste future ascendants! Were going to be kicking off the 4th article and Phase 3 today, giving an overview of the 3 Great Planes of existence. If you have not read the previous installments please click HERE. This will be a ‘brief’ breakdown of all of the known frequencies of our universe. There isn’t an actual distinction separating these 3 Planes, they all flow together in a cosmic spectrum of vibration, blending in so as to allow for a complete expression of the musical scale (the highest notes being Spirit, the lowest being matter). The octaves, or separations we place within this spectrum are somewhat arbitrary, but useful for us to create a way to study the spectrum and it’s various expressions easily. Depending on your perspective, you can view these octaves as 7 planes, 11 dimensions, 10 sephirot, and so on.
