First blog post

Lilly talking to SnakeThe Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily is a fairy tale written in 1794 by Johann Goethe, a German Philosopher, writer, playwright and influential figure who is revered to this day.  This imaginative tale is associated with Goethe’s own journey toward ‘conscious awareness’ and his desire to help others to become better humans and citizens, to find their soul-self’s life purpose.

There are four writings that are suggested for your first reads.

  • The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily.  There is a lot of astrological symbolism in this fairy tale.  All of Goethe’s dialog is included in this retelling.  Additional or expanded scenes and words have been added for the purpose of enriching the characters and better presenting the astrological characteristics included.
  • The Role of the Characters.  Each character’s role and nature are summarized. For those not versed in symbolism, this writing may clarify the tale’s details and plot.
  • Conscious Awareness via Inspiration:  Goethe.  The life of Goethe, his birth chart, the charts relating to his Conscious Awareness experience, and charts relating to a prior crises in his life are presented.  Over time, many contemporary charts can be presented and examined wherein the subjects have gained conscious awareness, a spiritual awakening, and a point of great change in their life.  The people’s charts all have similar patterns to Goethe’s relevant charts.
  • The astrological charting method used.  There are a great many charting approaches used in astrological examinations.  The method used for this blog post and project is ideally matched to the nature of these deeply personal and significant experiences.

This blog site will be built up, expanded and enriched over time.  Visitors may watch this, read the comments or write their own comments.  If you find this unique site interesting please like the site and let your friends know of your interest.  Dave
