We welcome artist and magical practitioner JM Hamade to join me and astrologer Elodie St-Onge Aubut in an ongoing discussion about the cross of creativity, the imagination, the spirit world, the post mortem state, art, aesthetic philosophy, image making, and lunar astrology. Elodie and I are amidst an ongoing collaboration focusing on the Lunar layer of astrology which explores the functions, potentials, philosophies, shapes, implications, uses, magic, myth, history and spiritual inhabitants of the Lunar Zodiac. We center our work around the axis of a list of 28 Shapes Of The World mentioned in the Greek Magical Papyri and with that as a matrix and nexus we explore outward from there. Over the past year our discussions together are emerging into the public now as we embark on a dialogue with other practitioners, thinkers, astrologers, and artists with the mission to embody the shapes as they have been since the dawn of human remembering and as they are continuing in becoming today.
JM Hamade caught my attention a while back with his approach to art and spirit engagement and as a fellow practitioner who pays attention to the Mansions and the role of the Moon he is the perfect person to spark off this series of conversations.
