This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's look skyward and see what's up there.
Every season brings different views of the Heavens, and Autumn is no different. And, the Stars of Autumn bring their own stories and myths. So to start this week, I have a poem written back in 1819 by the English Romantic poet, John Keats. In his poem, "To Autumn" he captures the feeling and spirit of this season.
Then we'll talk a bit about Astronomy itself, and one view of how why people started making Constellations in their minds.
Then I want to talk about the Real Stars of Autumn; The Great Square of Pegasus, Cassiopeia and Draco the Dragon.
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Nuit:"Unto Whom I Send This Kiss"; Incubus Succubus: "Enchantment"; Kay Gardner: "Invocation"; Wendy Rule: "Frost at Midnight"; Burning Sage: "Dragon" and more.
