Magic of the Spheres Podcast
39. Planetary Combinations of Mercury with Becca Tarnas Part One
I had Becca Tarnas back on the show to discuss the planetary combinations of Mercury after we last discussed the planetary combinations of Venus. This episode is part one of our conversation and we’ll make it out through Saturn, so check back next week for part 2 where we will discuss Mercury’s combinations with Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
Becca is a scholar, artist, and counseling astrologer, and an editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. She received her PhD in Philosophy and Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and her dissertation is titled The Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien.
Speaking with Becca and getting to otherwise interact with her work is a real pleasure one reason of which is that she combines such deep intellect and scholarship with the numinous and the mythic, which I feel becomes a doorway to making new connections about the magic of the world around us. Archetypes, after all, are everywhere. We explored Mercury as it expresses in people’s communication styles but also some of the esoteric qualities of Mercury like spell-casting, etymology, and “dead languages”.
