9 September 2016 – Astro-Weather:
First Quarter Moon arrives this morning at 8:49am CDT & shines over Mars at dusk. The Saturn-Mars-Antares triangle, the emblem of this summer’s evening sky, continues to morph. In the coming days & weeks Saturn & Antares will continue to move farther toward the lower right, while Mars hangs back and fades. By mid-autumn Saturn and Antares will be gone.

My POD (Poem Of the Day)
~The flood makes moist
The fertile shore
Revealing Divine debris
The path of The Melissae draws inspiration from a unique, more ancient spring than most. (Perhaps extra-terrestrial, is a better word, for it is more cosmic than earthly) It is an arcane discipline, a vein – an underground working – difficult to trace but easy to bring into our time now, once encountered.
The Melissae utilize ancient methodologies made new, to move into liminal zones, in-between places of ‘neither-niether’ – using various zsound vibrations – Practicing the Apis-Codex: a guide to living in right relationship with the Path of Pollen. Here, specific meditations & ceremonial observations that revolve around the Lemniscatic Volatus, the Dance of Infinite Flight, are imparted & utilized to move between worlds – to step outside & beyond the circles of time. Within these Reverse Ritual practices & accompanying ceremonial workings, a path is laid, leading to physical & metaphysical health; & simultaneously a pilgrimage is made towards a vital & radiant life after death.
This work follows the traditional awareness of the bee as an intermediary, a messenger from those peripheral realms of human awareness where perceptions of the super-sensible world are revealed. The bee carries a signal or frequency that enables transformation; it empowers the sterile to become fertile & initiates the process of regeneration.
The bee, in this context, represents an interlocutor between our immediate mundane awareness & the ‘deep space’ of human cognizance.
