The art and the occult
Hi Mona and all,
Can contribute my two cents. For me creative art and occult seems very correlated. I've been a dancer and choreographer for more than 10 years by now. Also like to paint and all things concerning style, design and photography... But been interested in occult studies as from the age like 11 or so.. Thanks to my mother we've had wall sized shelves of esoteric and psycho literature ????.
I think it's just this feeling of the unknown allpowerful force behind our conscious understanding. I've noticed this feeling in me very early. And that's why I was ready for this unknown stream direct me when I've been creating each choreography. When I had certain inspiration I've just surrendered to the flow, and my body was an instrument. That's how it's been in a perfect occasion. But some days mind interrupted the process and I wasn't really satisfied with the result.
I didn't really practiced reading charts for other people yet, but I already feel it's also not only calculation, but an Art in a sense that it's smth that comes to you from some much greater consciousness/power. Insight, revelation, whatever you call it. And in astrology, likewise in creative arts, not only this feeling counts, but also the technique is really important. By working on technique you become a greater provider of truth/beauty.
So that's my thoughts about it.
