Eclipse Predictions

Top: path of the eclipse. Bottom: how the states voted in the 2016 presidential election.

So the first Solar eclipse visible across the whole of the contiguous United States in a hundred years is taking place tomorrow. By looking at the path of points from which totality will be visible, one notices that apart from the Pacific seaboard, it passes neatly through the Red States from the 2016 presidential election.

Given that some have claimed that eclipses presage death and destruction, I’d say this is pretty ironic, no? 😉

What if this life is just one big lucid dream?

Inception meme

The difference between Lucid Dreaming and real life explained.

This sort of remark comes up on Twitter regularly – so I thought I’d enlist the cast of Inception to help explain it.

There is a quick way to discover whether this life really is a lucid dream or not. If it is, you can change it to what you want, using the power of your mind. In order to do this with ease one would normally need to do a lot of practice training one’s mind (e.g. through self-hypnosis) whilst awake. Thus the successful lucid dreamer can give him or herself unlimited super-powers, through an act of Will.

It gets complicated however when one considers that it is possible to use the power of the mind to alter ones waking circumstances as well. Most obviously through plain old hard work, but also through the law of attraction, and through the practice of Magick.

Hence real life is in fact a type of Lucid Dream after all – just not as immediate!

Nixie The Cat gets her own Blog Post

OK, so tomorrow I will be in London doing research for the most awesome blog since Golden Dawn Manuscripts and Where To Find Them. This will probably be published in the New Year as it depends on the good offices of people who have already gone on the Xmas Holidays. *

* Update: actually I managed to get it out the day after. See here for more details.

In the meantime, here is a completely gratuitous series of photos in honour of the true star of my latest novel Taromancer, namely: Nixie The Cat, of whom Miranda is the human. 😉

"I read your fortune, but first: cross my paw with catnip."

“I read your future, but first: cross my paw with catnip.”

"You are going to have to sacrifice a lot in order to provide me with tuna."

“You are going to have to sacrifice a lot in order to provide me with tuna.”
