Journal for Star Wisdom 2013 includes articles of interest concerning the current planetary and star gestures in light of Astrosophy (Star Wisdom), as well as a guide to the correspondences between stellar configurations during the life of Christ and those of today. This guide comprises a complete sidereal ephemeris and aspectarian, geocentric and heliocentric, for each day throughout the year. Published yearly, new editions are available beginning in November for the coming new year.
According to Rudolf Steiner, every step taken by Christ during his ministry between the baptism in the Jordan and the resurrection was in harmony with-and an expression of-the cosmos. The Journal for Star Wisdom is concerned with these heavenly correspondences during the life of Christ. It is intended to help provide a foundation for cosmic Christianity, the cosmic dimension of Christianity. It is this dimension that has been missing from Christianity in its two-thousand-year history.
Readers can begin on this path by contemplating the movements of the Sun, Moon, and planets against the background of the zodiacal constellations (sidereal signs) today in relation to corresponding stellar events during the life of Christ. In this way, the possibility is opened for attuning, in a living way, to the life of Christ in the etheric cosmos.
In this year’s journal there is an article by David Bowden and Robert Powell on the new science of Astrogeographia concerning the location of the seven planetary chakras of the Earth. David Tresemer’s article examines the significance of Neptune in world events, and William Bento’s article offers important perspectives on the dark shadows of Neptune. There is also an article by Wain Farrants and Robert Powell, continuing the discussion of the house systems in astrology begun by Brian Gray in the 2012 issue. Kevin Dann’s article focuses on the 33 1/3 -year rhythm, and Lacquanna Paul’s has written about Divine Sophia in relation to the zodiac. Brian Gray has contributed an article concerning his discovery of the zodiac in the Raphael Madonna series arranged by Rudolf Steiner.
The monthly commentaries for 2013 by Claudia McLaren Lainson are preceded by her article on the Jupiter-Pluto opposition in 2013. The commentaries are supported by monthly astronomical previews provided by Sally Nurney, which offer opportunities to observe physically and experience the stellar configurations during 2013. This direct interaction between the human being on Earth and the heavenly beings of the stars develops the capacity to receive their wisdom-filled teachings.
