Astrology, Magic & Pilgrimage
I spent 2 weeks in Japan, in late October and early November 2014. The trip combined astrology lectures, astrological magic workshops and pilgrimage to Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Once again, it would have been impossible without my good friend, student and guide, Munehisa Yoshigaki, who is a top Japanese professional astrologer.
I lectured on traditional astrology and did individual traditional natal readings in Tokyo and Osaka and an astrological magic workshops where the participants created Spica talismans in Tokyo. I was very pleased and gratified at the enthusiasm of the participants!
One of the highlights of the trip was being able to do Jupiter planetary initiations in a Shinto Shrine in Osaka!
I was able to sit zazen with a Rinzai Zen monk at Daiji-in at the Daitokuji temple complex in Kyoto. It's not easy to sit zazen in Japan!
I was able to make pilgrimage to many temples and shrines in Kyoto and Nara, the ancient capitols of Japan. The contrast between the small scale Zen temples with dry gardens in Kyoto, like the Hojo Gardens here...
And the monumental temples and Buddhas in Nara was quite interesting. The Great Buddha at Todaiji in Nara is 50 feet high and weighs over 500 tons!
I really enjoyed meeting the sacred deer of Nara!
I am already making plans to return to Japan in 2015!
