This show won’t be up until October, but that just gives us some time to get to Strasbourg, France.

Europe and its Spirits, or the Fascination of the Occult, 1750-1950 is a multidisciplinary exhibition exploring the influence of the occult on artists, thinkers and scientists across Europe from the mid-18th Century through the middle of the 20th.

Curated by Serge Fauchereau and Joëlle Pijaudier-Cabot, the show is organized into three sections. The first focuses on artistic creation, like painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography and literature.

The second takes a wide historical perspective of the topic through founding texts and printed illustrations.

The final section looks at the relationship between science and occult phenomena through the stories of the scholars themselves and the scientific instruments they used.

It’s a a big show, with over 500 works, 150 scientific articles, 150 books and a 100 documents from 25 European countries.

It’s at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg, France from October 8 through February 12, 2012. From there it moves on to the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, from March 31 through July 15, 2012.

Moon in Gemini – High Priestess Dressed as the Lovers' Angel

High Priestess dressed as Lovers' Angel

The Moon moves into Gemini today and will stay there until Friday.

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Lovers’ Angel. She floats above the naked couple, blessing their sacred union.

The Moon in Gemini, or High Priestess dressed as the Lovers’ angel, can be an emotionally confusing time, one where internal conflicts arise in order to be reconciled.

But it can also be a time of clarity, honest communication and almost intuitive understanding about yourself and those around you.

Quiet faith teams up with commitment and the Angels approve of the whole thing.

Try to keep your emotions in line with your reason. Going too far either way could disturb a really nice balance.

It’s time to get down to the details.  A new project is in the works and you’ve got the task of making it happen – or at least starting the process off.

Keep the reason you’re doing it in mind – that’s the fire that drives the whole enterprise.

If the less than exciting details are getting you down, remember that it’s the details that build the foundation to any project.

Don’t be afraid to sludge and trudge on through.  It’ll be worth it in the end.
