Movie Poster for Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain

I seem to keep writing about director and Tarot master, Alejandro Jodorowsky, but that’s because there keeps being things to write about …

The MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, NY is presenting Jodorowsky’s 1973 cult film The Holy Mountain every day, through June 30th.

It’ll be played continuously with starting times at noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m., during regular museum hours, in the Third Floor Main Gallery.

Of course, The Holy Mountain is available now on Blu-ray, but this is a chance to see it in a cinematic setting.

Jodorowsky himself plays the Alchemist in his film. He’s also the director, composer, set and costume designer. Clearly, he had a singular artistic/spiritual vision, and was determined to make it manifest.

John Lennon and Yoko Ono were principal funders of this occult masterpiece, and the Beatles manager, Allen Klein, produced it.

Tarot imagery abounds throughout the piece, but it’s not for the faint of heart, or those that like to keep Tarot fluffy.

The Fool is a thief and the Holy Mountain is possibly nothing more than a cinematic dream.

If you get a chance – go see it!!

And follow Jodorowsky on Twitter.

Moon in Aries – High Priestess in the Emperor's Clothing

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

High Priestess dressed as Emperor

The Moon moves into Aries today and will stay there until Sunday.

Translating this transit into Tarot Cards, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing the Emperor’s clothing. She’s in scarlet and armor and is ready for battle.

The Moon in Aries, or High Priestess in the clothing of the Emperor, is a time of intensified emotions. You might feel an increased desire to shape your own world.

Rather than sitting back in stillness, this transit encourages the loosening of emotional restrictions and the conscious expression of enthusiasm and/or passion.

It might be uncomfortable at first, but allow yourself to speak out loud. Take steps forward to let people know what you know and what you love.

Try to remain objective and open-minded while acting with determination and direction. It might sound impossible, but you can do both if you try.

Swift communication is at the forefront today.  Have you applied for something and been waiting to hear back?  Expecting some news to finally come down the wire?

Or maybe it will be a surprise. One way or another, the message is on its way and your wait is almost over.  You’ll know soon enough.

Now that your plans are in action, things will start moving quickly.  Communicate what you want and don’t be shy about it.

How else will people know what you’re thinking?  This is the time to get your ideas out there and your message heard.
