Summary
"The sky was our original calendar, our original storybook, the first illustrated edition, the prototype GPS. Beyond its pragmatic usefulness, the sky was the domain of spirit, traversed by deities and a place to which human souls departed. Let's re-enchant it, shall we? Shamanic practitioner, Wicca priestess, and author of Math for Mystics Renna Shesso invites readers along as she takes a pagan's look at the night sky -- as messenger, guide, storyteller, and mother. She weaves together facts and folklore about the heavens that can't help but fill readers with awe and guide them to personal and sacred discoveries. Using a planet-by-planet, star-by-star chapter format, A Magical Tour of the Night Sky draws on astronomy, Tarot, shamanism, astrology, Wicca, lore, legend, and history to interpret the patterns and movement of the night sky and re-awaken our spirits. Included is a treasure trove of information about the North Star (including Ophiuchus!), the Sun, the Precession of the Equinoxes, the Moon, and the visible planets, and each chapter ends with practices people can try to help get them back in touch with their sacred selves.
