Photobooth Function/Kirlian Photography Experiment

I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with kirlian photography but it is supposed to take a picture or an aura. I have been fascinated by this for many years. Anyway, to make a machine is very difficult and to buy one outrageously expensive. However for those of you who own macs and have the photobook function on it, try putting the effect “Glow” on and then get into a dark room and take a picture of yourself. Do that first and then try projecting different colors onto the image. I found that I was able to get the color I was thinking of to color the image of me. It was very interesting.

Try it and let me know what you find and e-mail me pictures. If you want them posted let me know and I will do so. If not then let me know that too. Please give it a shot. I think mac may have inadvertently given us a way to work with energy through the computer/camera. Let me know what your findings are.

Also I have been reading to excellent books that seem to compliment each other well. One is called How to Read the Akashic Records, the other is If You Want To Write. The writing book is actually a spiritual book disguised as a book about finding ones authentic creative voice. For anyone interested in being more creative in any aspect of their life and being in touch with the divine I highly recommend the book If You Want To Write. It is inspirational, plain spoken and encourages the connection between the self and the divine. Also How to Read the Akashic Records also fosters a personal connection to God/Goddess/Creator/Universe and gives some good ideas for people to follow on how to get in touch with ones own higher self and spiritual teachers (on the non material side) encouraging people to forage their own link between themselves and the truth that they are part of God. Both books do this in different ways. I highly recommend them especially in this turbulent time when the best thing that can come out of this for all of us is a greater understanding of ourselves.

Best to all and many blessings,
Denise

Financial Astrology Books… Some Recommendations…

For those of you interested in taking up the hobby or profession of financial astrology. I’m putting together a list of some good books. I think these books (if you have a basic working knowledge of astrology) can help any investor. As long as you can find the start date of a company, you can do the company’s chart and get some valuable information about whether to invest in them or not. It’s complicated, but anyone interested in investing should think about this as one of their future tools. We can’t all know people working on Wall Street or get tips from insiders, this is about the best one can do as far as that is concerned. They aren’t cheap because its a niche market but, here are some of the books I recommend:

Here’s another book i have and like, it is less expensive then the first one listed:
Business Astrology 101 : Weaving the Web Between Business and Myth
“>Business Astrology 101 : Weaving the Web Between Business and Myth

Here’s a much less expensive book that is for beginners. I don’t have it, but it seems like a good place to start for people interested in this field.

Astrological Recommendations… Learning Astrology. Where to Start?

For those of you interested in taking the leap into the study of astrology. There are some basic things you’ll need. One is an ephemeris, this is a list of the planets, what degree and sign they are in. You will find ephemeris that break down as little as a year or as much as 100 years. I suggest you have one handy to look up transits which I’ll explain a little later.

Now the main thing is understanding the basics. My first book was the A to Z horoscope maker and it’s great for reference but a little confusing. A great series of books that break down everything into an easy system and walk you through the process, allowing you to develop your own style of interpretation are by Marion March and Joan McEvers. The series is called “The Only Way to Learn Astrology.” A bit hyperbolic but none the less a really great group of books. I have listed links to the first few basic ones, as well as links to some ephemeris. I suggest buying an ephemeris for this century and the last for quick reference. Also I like the little yearly calendar/ephemeris for a quick look when on the go. I also like calendars for the home that have astronomical info on them but then again I’m a bit obsessive. You can follow the links to find the series and starter book as well as different ephemeris and calendars.

An interesting aside, and just plain fun. Sabian symbols are based on the degree of each planet or house in your chart. I haven’t found then to be amazingly accurate but they are interesting and there is no interpretation skills needed. All you have to do is have your chart in front of you and look up the degree and sign of each planet and get a mini-reading.

Best wishes and good luck!
