Moon 10°52' Sagittarius, in her Ascendant [First House]
Sagittarius gives the ability to guide and control thought and find safe passage through various realms of both the mental and astral worlds. Out of the old emerges the new and greater unfoldment. The circles of limitations are overcome. The goal of Sagittarius is self-realization. Women with a Sagittarian Moon are known to be outgoing, perceptive, and good salespeople. Their sense of humor can be kind, playful, or sharp as the point of an arrow. In Raiders, we have an apt description of the Moon in Sagittarius, introduced to Marion Ravenwood as a successful small business owner high in the mountains of Tibet. An excellent hostess, party planner, and cook, she could have been a caterer. Her Moon is sextile her Sun, trine her Jupiter, and sextile her Saturn, an excellent aura for business and realization of personal goals. Marion Ravenwood's colour scheme is linked to Trump XVIII The Moon Late Autumn - Early Winter.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Karen Allen - Marion Ravenwood



History has served up verifiable stories about the fanatic WWII search to locate mysterious artifacts said to hold paranormal power, as well as billions spent annually by the Soviets in their effort to break into the sixth and seventh sense secrets. Raiders is set in 1936, when paranormal research began to reach a global high in the sciences. During the thirties, people of science started to follow through on basic metaphysical theory that brought the psychic revolution to the fore. Kirlian photography was 'officially' invented in the former Soviet Union in 1939 by Semyon Davidovitch Kirlian, following Raudive's early audio research a few years prior in Germany. At the time there was a flurry of experimental research that set out to explore the early phase of atomic infrastructure. Indiana Jones pursues historic, ‘heretofore unobtainable,’ objects that connect the world of the four elements with the fifth element, spirit, or breath of God. As Sting sings, "We are spirits in the material world."

We know millions of colours cannot be seen by physical eyes, but can be detected by a computer. Science has dedicated itself to discovery of a managed, physical record-keeping mechanism sensitive to subtle presence the five-sense network cannot detect. The military has information about many places on the planet where the laws of physics are not always fully functional.

Raiders of the Lost Ark tracks the ancient Ark of the Covenant that contained the two tablets held by Moses. The Ark, protected by 'The Angels of The Face', holds the power of life and death. The Temple of Doom tells how Indiana Jones retrieves a stone sacred to Shiva/Shakti [power of life and death] and rescues helpless people in a dying village in India. From this group spring the Warrior Caste in India, associated with meteors, longevity, austere yoga, and medical attention for far-flung rural areas of the country. The Last Crusade is about the search for the sacred cup, The Holy Grail. Indy and his father, Professor Henry Jones, Sr., join forces on their quest for clues left throughout Europe by two knights who fought in the Crusades. Professor Jones spent his life collecting references, footnotes, and obscure records in his Grail Diary. The Nazi contingent won the race to the ancient city in desert stone, but could not read hidden guidelines that would allow them to past tests about life and death.

Kingdom of The Crystal Skull is a layered story, unveiled in 1957 against the atmosphere of the cold war, covert FBI activities, and evolution of science into sophisticated science fiction. Chronologically, the data provides a missing puzzle piece that fits between two important events in world history. Five years earlier Bernstein's book, The Search for Bridey Murphy shook the worlds of medicine, science, and psychology. We reinvested in Jungian dream analysis and many people began week-end hypnosis parties, looking for a past lifetime and their oversoul. The Interrupted Journey took place four years later, in 1961, when Betty and Barney Hill were abducted by extraterrestrials during a drive home on September 19–20. Kingdom of The Crystal Skull provides the bridge between hypnosis/altered state research, an updated concept of the oversoul, and the first reported and widely-publicized claim of alien abduction. I'm not able to verify there was a plot to uncover or prevent discovery of the ancient Mayan city in the film or Crystal Skulls that are in the mainstream now. The true whereabouts of such power sites have recently surfaced. Mysterious artifacts like those known as the Crystal Skulls may have a history we are not yet ready to absorb into our waking collective consciousness.

Sun 18° Scorpio 39', birth time unknown
Moon at Noon was deposited in Scorpio @ 3°44'
Destiny Path 8

Sun conjunction Venus 19° Scorpio 16', one of the 'beautiful people'; Neptune, the higher octave of Venus also conjunct Venus, suggesting universal talent in the arts and interest in language, tradition, and culture of foreign lands. May have home in more than one country or serve as a translator/interpreter. Mercury 1° Sagittarius 28' rx is trine Jupiter and conjunct Neptune, indicating design and sales skill, interest in innovative garden-landscape schemes, disciplined sensitivity to colour coordination.

Alison Doody was born with her Sun, Moon, and Venus in that part of the zodiac that ushers the power of the Sun's manifestation from Libra into Scorpio. The Tarot Court Card that describes this powerful energy is The Prince of Cups. He is the first sign the season of Autumn has converted solar symbolism into attitude/behavior, functions of coordination, and power tools that are in step with the awakened power of discriminative thought.

This card also describes many important pictures found in the Grail Diary of Professor Henry Jones, and many atmospheric conditions that help set the best emotional stage for telling the story about The Last Crusade. The action that is set in Venice, above and below ground, is consistent with the search for artifacts that originated during the Crusades. The castle stronghold, located high in rainy mountains, suggests an architectural version of the symbols in the card - armour, helmet, and layers of insulation that serve to keep secrets from the rest of the world. You can see other subtle references in the card described in the following excerpt taken from the main text.

The Prince of Cups represents the airy part of Water. On the one hand, elasticity, volatility, hydrostatic equilibrium; on the other hand, the catalytic faculty and the energy of steam. He rules from the 21st degree of Libra to the 20th degree of Scorpio, the great power of Libra going over into Scorpio.

He is a warrior partly clad in armour, which seems, however, rather a growth than a covering. His helmet is surmounted by an eagle, and his chariot, which resembles a shell, is also drawn by an eagle. His wings are tenuous, almost of gas. This is a reference to his power of volatilization understood in the spiritual sense. In his right hand he bears a Lotus flower, sacred to the element of Water, and in his left hand is a cup from which issues a serpent.

The third totem, the scorpion is not shewn in the picture, for the putrefaction which it represents is an extremely secret process. Beneath his chariot is the calm and stagnant water of a lake upon which rain falls heavily. The whole symbolism of this card is exceedingly complicated, for Scorpio is the most mysterious of the Signs, and the manifested portion of it symbolized by the eagle is in reality the least important part of his nature.


Crystal Skull Guacamole - Make ahead provisions


Makes 3 cups



· 2 plum tomatoes, diced
· 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
· 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
· 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
· 1 garlic clove, crushed through a press
· 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
· 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
· 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
· 2 large, ripe Hass avacados, pitted and peeled


1. Combine tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin, and pepper sauce in a medium bowl.

2. With a fork or potato masher, coarsely mash avacados in a large bowl. Stir in tomatoe mixture.

3. Directly cover surface of guacamole with Glad-Wrap and refrigerate up to 4 hours. Tip: to keep guacamole from browning, place one of the avacado pits in the bowl of the prepared mixture before covering with clear wrap. The pit's natural enzymes help maintain the natural colour while the wrap allows the flavours to blend vibrantly. Serve guacamole in a round crystal dish with fresh corn strips, blue chips, or tortilla corn chips on the side.


The Gravy Boat

For rich gravy first roast veggie assortment, giblets and neck under the turkey then caramelize them on the stove top. First, take the finished turkey from the roasting pan after cooking, set aside for carving. Place the pan on the stove top across two burners.
Bring pan liquids to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Continue stirring until vegetables are brown, about 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup dry white wine and cook. Stir occasionally for 2 minutes. Add 2/3 cup flour (rice flour best, all purpose flour good) and ˝ cup coconut oil (optional). Continue to cook another 2 minutes.
Slowly add 8 cups water, stir constantly, bring to a simmer. Continue cooking until gravy reaches desired consistency, about 10 – 12 minutes. Pour gravy through cheesecloth or fine mesh sieve into a saucepan. Discard solids. Sprinkle sea salt and fresh ground pepper before serving.
