Episode 15 of Media Astra Ac Terra is now available! This episode takes a look at the constellation and sign of Capricorn the Goat, and the mineralogy and metaphysics of turquoise! Then in the main show I’ll lead you in a guided meditation meant to reconnect us to the larger world of which we are a part, in this time of year when we might be feeling a little caught up in the rush of things.
In the Terra segment I mentioned that I’m using two new books as reference materials in the metaphysical section of that segment. They are Gemstones A-Z by Diane Stein, and the Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem, and Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham.
The meditation in the main segment is called “The Remembering,” from a book I mentioned in last month’s show, Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World by Joanna Macy and Molly Young Brown. (I apologize for only listing Joanna Macy as the author last time.) You can find more about the larger body of work that this book is part of, and the generosity with which Ms. Macy has offered her work to be shared, at Joanna Macy’s website.
We finished up the show with the song “The Green” (click for lyrics) by Gaia Consort, which I thought went remarkably well with the meditation. Please consider supporting their music by buying a CD or two!
Last but not least, promos played on the show were for Lakefront Pagan Voice with Scarlet, and Earth & Magick with Meical ab Awen. (And thanks also to Chris Orapello from The Infinite and the Beyond for the show bumper he made for me!)
Thanks very much for listening to the show, and have a blessed Yule!
Bright and dark blessings,
