Audio transcript: "The dark moons of winter bring initiation to the soul who would penetrate the Abyss, and so learn the occult knowledge of the Tree of Life, which bears the Spheres as its fruit - the Spheres of Being!"

Happy Solstice Sun in Capricorn! Olivia Robertson wrote in the book, "Sophia":
"Companions, let us contemplate the Constellation of Capricorn! Behold, it emerges from the Sea of Heaven, the primordial abyss from which all life is drawn. Within it swim Pisces Australis and Aquarius. and above flies the eagle Aquila. Beyond ascends the starry Northern Swan Cygnus, spreading wide its wings. Nearby are the twin souls, fair Vega, maiden of the Lyre, and Altair, the youth of Aquila, separated by the milky way. As is told in the Orient, the Weaver Maid and the Shepherd, may only meet once a year, over a bridge of magpies. So do our souls long for completion, the union of darkness and light, dreams and activity, the past and future, in eternal reality. . . let us contemplate the Mystery of Capricorn and Terra."

"Nuit of the Milky Way" by Olivia Robertson is now available in paperback. Olivia wrote in the introduction:
"In these rites, the Apprentices working for these final degrees I call Elaine and Aiden, the Questing Twins. Their Guide, adopting various guises, is the Shaman Time Traveller – Hermes – Merlin – Ariadne – Odin – who guides those of us who long for spiritual adventure. The Questing Twins' journey is to have a Vision Quest through the starry portals of the zodiac, inspired by the given Oracle from 'Sybil.' Within their own chosen shrine they enter trance, under the guidance of their own Priestly Alchemical Teacher. The alchemical answer brought through the Mysteries of Isis, and other transforming Goddesses, comes from the Motherhood of the Goddess."
