Seasoned left-coast psychonaut Arun Joseph Ragan comes on the show to discuss his experience working with Western Ceremonial Magick and its connection to the correspondences cited in ASTROMUSIK. We discuss his annual Krampuslauf street-parades in Portland and the importance of acknowledging the pillar of severity during the holiday season. Arun describes his method of dreamwork in creating and executing rituals, including his use of the eight Church modes for incantation. We also touch on the idea of maintaining secrecy as a useful method of self-cultivation, regardless of what that secret actually is. Listen in for a discussion of the celestial macrocosm and microcosm, the harmony of the spheres, and plenty more. We look forward to having Arun back on the show again in the future!

Episode 2 of the Astromusik Podcast features Andras Jones, founder of the Radio8Ball pop oracle. He is an author of the Sync Book Press community and another figure in the field practicing musical divination. We discuss the new online oracle that Andras has created and do a demonstration of how it works. The folks at AlwaysRecord posed a question and we seek to answer it through a variety of interpretations. We bring on Ralph Covert, the songwriter behind the oracle's answer, to talk about his music and talk about his musical history with Andras. We look at the role of a 0 degree Mars and its relevance to the recent crash of NASA's Antares rocket, the Virgin Galactic crash, and the 5th dimensional quantum communications depicted in Matthew Mcconaughey's latest Hollywood blockbuster movie, Interstellar.
Join us on one of our first known journeys through the synchromystical world of Astromusik. Recorded on the evening of October 31st 2014, this podcast begins with a look at the three planets currently hanging out in Scorpio and their connection to Brian Eno’s “Music for Airports” album. We are led to the postmodern mythos of dead rockstars and plane crashes, the Curse of Buddy Holly, the recent explosion of the space-station rocket Antares, and its occult relationship to the planet Mars. Brett goes deep into the Synodic cycle of Scorpio and Venus through the ancient Sumerian myth of Innana as Venus in the Underworld. We look at the relationship between Holst’s Mars theme and John William’s Imperial Theme in the Star Wars soundtrack.
