Tarot of the Morning Star Second Editon Divination Deck


Scheduled for release October 2017 Divination deck Tarot of the Morning Star second editon Seventy Eight Card Deck with booklet, $44.95 ISBN: 978-0-9993813-0-4   Divination deck Tarot of the Morning Star was originally published in 2007 as a major arcana deck only limited to 75 signed hand numbered copies.

However, I believe that Lucifer, the morning star, should be assigned to Sirius, which rises with the Sun to announce the annual  inundation of the […]

Sun Enters Leo Tarot Strength and Bicameral Theory


Tarot Strength Bicameral Theory Is strength taking the fruit, or refusing the fruit? As an example of a bicameral archetype for this card, Achilles is opportune because of his reactionary fixed  automatic responses to phenomena.  We should note however that his character expresses wrath and anger but not hate. When presented with a phenomena outside of himself, Achilles responds to voices from within himself. He is, to all intense and purposes, a puppet  animated and manipulated by the strings of hallucinating voices of ancestors and Gods. These automatic responses are recurrent throughout the Iliad. However, when we examine the Odyssey, with […]

Cryptic Sphinx. A Mythological Being From Ancient Greece Relevant in the Perpetual Present


Cryptic Sphinx The cryptic sphinx epitomizes awareness of a possible  event. Symptomatic of hazard, implying an appearance of a new situation or enterprise, she is the enigmatic unknown of the unrevealed future. We are not initially cognizant of consequences resulting from our engagement in her speculative opportunity. The answer to her riddle will be through our life journey, a voyage of opportunity revealing through oracular revelation the interpretation of her initial cryptic emergence. Mystery is energy and when the sphinx loses her mystery she dies.  In the back ground is written the riddle of the Sphinx, in jumbled up Greek […]

Odysseus


Odysseus Becoming Our Own Gods Odysseus a pictorial depiction of our journey through life.  Oil on canvas, 36 inches by 72 inches, 2008 refinished 2011. Buy Original Painting from Saatchi Art I originally finished The Odyssey in 2008 but then reworked it in the fall of 2011 for my show “God Factory”. In the Odyssey one witnesses a move into human consciousness, a consciousness that is not present in the Iliad. The Odyssey shows man becoming accountable and introspective,  human traits not encountered in the Iliad. Philosophy Behind the Painting The Odyssey I believe is the greatest story ever told because it is  […]

Zeus and Io, Io Tells Her Story


Zeus Io, Io Tells Her Story Zeus Io.  Io was, in Greek mythology, a priestess of Hera in Argos. Seduced by Zeus, he changed her into a heifer to escape detection. His wife Hera sent ever-watchful Argus with 100 eyes to guard her, but Hermes was sent to distract the guardian and slay him. Oil on canvas, 24 inches by 48 inches, 2011. My objective in creating the picture was to encapsulate in a single image the mythological journey of Io and her relationship with Zeus, Hera and Hermes. I used the same formula in my rendition of the Odyssey which […]
