Thelemic Codes and Essential Dignities

Posted in Uncategorized on August 12, 2017 by Vallin

Those of you who have read the writings of Aleister Crowley, Muriel Hasbrouck, and Raven Kaldera on the correspondences between tarot and planetary essential dignities will appreciate this concept I’ve developed.

In Thelemic Astrology a planet’s accidental dignity by house placement is virtually the same as its essential–or “face”–dignity by sign. For example, natal Jupiter in Gemini–“Shortened Force”, or “Interference”–is fundamentally similar to natal Jupiter in the 3rd house.

The second part of this theory, leading logically from the first, is that the characteristics of the “signs” so familiar in pop astrology are derived from the houses to which they correspond. Thus, for example, the descriptive characteristics of ‘Cancer’ are derived from the meanings and implications of the IVth house.

This Friday, Stand With Bandcamp in Support of Trans Rights

Bandcamp Daily

trans-fundraiser-600-7

Bandcamp is a platform for artistic expression, and all manner of variance in experience and identity, including gender and sexuality, is welcome here. We support our LGBT+ users and staff, and we stand against any person or group that would see them further marginalized. This includes the current U.S. administration, and its recent capricious declaration that transgender troops will no longer be able to serve in the military. That this announcement was motivated in part to help fund the border wall exposes it as part of the administration’s cynical, discriminatory agenda.

In response, we will be donating 100% of our share of every sale on Friday, August 4th (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time) to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly to change law, policy, and culture for the more equitable. TLC does critical policy advocacy and litigation on multiple fronts, fights for healthcare…

Gratitude is Bullshit

Posted in Uncategorized on June 24, 2017 by Vallin

What Monkeys Think

There is a disturbing trend among liberals to talk about gratitude. Everyone’s encouraged to have gratitude for the abundance in their lives. Everyone’s supposed to be grateful for all their blessings. On the surface, it’s a lovely sentiment. People should be mindful of the fact that they live privileged lives, and use that awareness to inform their interactions with people who are less privileged.

But it never goes that deep. It stops at “be grateful because you have it good.” The new Gratitude encourages insularity – think hard about what you have so that you aren’t thinking about people who don’t have anything. Gratitude is selfish. Being grateful for what you have invites the desire for more – more stuff (more friends, money, recognition) equals more gratitude, right?

This year has been full of horror: while the world was outraged at 12 people killed in attacks on Paris, thousands have died in Nigeria…
