Just came across the quote from Northrop Frye the famous Canadian literary critic and theorist considered to be one of the most influential of the 20th Century.
Frye rose to international prominence as a result of his first book, Fearful Symmetry, published in 1947. Until then, the prophetic poetry of William Blake had long been poorly understood, and considered by some to be delusional ramblings. Frye found in it a system of metaphor derived from Paradise Lost and the Bible. His study of Blake’s poetry was a major contribution. Moreover, Frye outlined an innovative manner of studying literature that was to deeply influence the study of literature in general. He was a major influence on Harold Bloom, Margaret Atwood, writer of the Handmaiden’s Tale and other famous books.
“As long as [synchronicity is] acausal, in the same way that putting a thermometer outside the window doesn‘t cause but only records a change in temperature, not only astrology but any number of ‗mancies‘ or forms of divination might be alternative ways of recording the phenomena of human (or any other) life‖ (Bible, 326). Frye calls such recording a ―silent écriture‖ (ibid.). Synchronicity for Frye is somewhat broader than Jung‘s definition of ―meaningful coincidence‖ (Synchronicity, 104). For Frye it means that ―every object is an event & every event a signature of a total entity‖ (Bible, 205).”

this is good for asking big questions. No so good for California fires.
An image of a hanging Man or the Hanged Man in the Tarot has been superimposing itself in my mind since Sunday evening on 11:11.
This is usually an archetypal message or warning. The Hanged Man #12 is the larger number of the coming year. 2019= 2=0=1=9 = 12.
The Hanged Man in the tarot is the Nordic God ODIN voluntarily hanging upside down suspended from the World tree Ygdrassil to obtain knowledge from the earth not the sky. Inverted knowledge or Gnosis, knowledge gained in another way. In this way Odin channeled the runic alphabet.
In the Poem “Havarnal’ Odin claims “i know that I hung on the windy tree
for nine whole nights, wounded with the spear,
dedicated to Odin, Myself to Myself.”
The Hanged Man has the qualities of a scapegoat. In traditional tarot decks from Italy in the Renaissance, it showed a traitor being punished.
The Sacrificial god is very much related to the Christ Myth. Also Odin Osiris Attis Buddha Demuzi all Harvest Gods, and in the feminine Ishtar, Inanna, Persephone, Artemis making sacrifices amongst many more.
Neil Young and California Fires
In recent news Canadian Singer Neil Young who keeps on rockin’ in the free world and protesting -turned 73 on November 12- Belated Happy birthday wishes Neil- an old fave of mine since I was a teen. Lost one of his homes to the Fires. “California is a paradise for us all. We are sad not to be able to defend it against Mother Nature’s wrath,” Young wrote. Californians “are up against something bigger than we have ever seen. It’s too big for some to see at all. Firefighters have never seen anything like this in their lives. I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another.”
A Scorpio with Scorpio Ascendant and Venus in Scorpio, Moon in Aquarius opposite Pluto and Scorpio Rising/Sun. A grand Air Trine dominates his chart. Losing two homes must be devastating. Interesting
Neil has Saturn in Cancer in the 8th house of loss, conjunct Mars as zero degrees Leo, which the North Node just crossed and is still conjunct to. If I was Neil’s astrologer I would have warned him about his house burning down.
