What's So Special About a New Moon?

The Metaphorcast

1x
Supernatural Serenity
Henry David Thoreau called enthusiasm "supernatural serenity".  With Venus, the planet of connectivity, floating through the fiery exuberance of Sagittarius, we shall ponder the effect of enthusiastic connections. #venus #astrology #astrologypodcast #enthusiasm #thoreau #exuberance #sagittarius #venusinsagittarius #philosophypodcast #psychologypodcast #cosmologypodcast #supernaturalserenity #happyastropondering #themetaphorcast #burlingtonvt #theradiator

Sparks at Dusk
A New Moon provides an excellent stage for the Draconid Meteor shower, emanating from the constellation of Draco, a dragon that coils around the north pole.  Unlike most meteor showers which are best seen near dawn, the Draconids are best seen at dusk.  In this episode we ponder the powers of creative observation, and the mysterious magic of the dusk.   #creativeobservation #draconids #draco #dusk #creaturesofdusk #astrologypodcast #metaphorcast #astrology #burlingtonvt #happyastropondering #sunandmoon #dayandnight #activereceptiveness #powersofobservation #libra #newmooninlibra #libranewmoon #newmoon #mystery #myth #subconscious #conscious #magichour

Wascally Wetwogwade!
As Mercury goes retrograde this week, we will ponder the way the mind 'looks back' to make sense of things.  In considering an idea that the mind extends into the world by use of tools and other minds, a seemingly simple subject of reflective thought becomes a silly symphony of possibilities!  #mercuryretrograde #astrologypodcast #themetaphorcast #happyastropondering #burlingtonvt #radioshow #theradiator #astrology #kierkegaard #bugsbunny #trickster #reflectivethought #bobdylan #reflect #lookback #extendedmind #andyclark

Hashtag No Filter: The True Beauty of a Fall Sunset
The first day of Fall falls on Wednesday this week.  Fall and winter are known to produce more vivid sunsets due to the drier air (nature's version of a hashtag-no-filter).  In this episode we ponder the vitality of a vivid image and its potential to vivify. #hashtagnofilter #fallsunsets #astrology #nofilter #autumnalequinox #autumnair #crisp #libraseason #harvestmoon #firstdayoffall #fallseason #vivid #vivify #dryhumor #busterkeaton #dhlawrence #astrologypodcast #burlingtonvt #themetaphorcast
