Hi, and welcome to the 'Luminaries In and Out of Sect' podcast, a show about the Moon and how astrologers embody and relate to it. My name is SP Hall and I'm your host.
In today’s episode on the Virgo Moon as the Luminary Out of Sect I speak with the artist, diviner, writer, and educator J.M. Hamade.
In addition to discussing the Virgo Moon in Jay’s 3rd WSH in this conversation we also touch on the Lunar Mansions, or Nakshatras. As Jay is a student of both the Vedic and Arabic Tradition, we compare and contrast the two systems quite a bit. We also talk about the nature of the 3rd House and the Moon’s Joy there, as well as the relationship of Mercury and the Moon, and Virgo and ideas of virginity and parthenogenesis.
Before we dive into the conversation, I wanted to give y’all a little update on my life, especially as it relates to the podcast. So I’m moving back to New York and will be driving across the country from Los Angeles the last week in September. This will coincide with the beginning of Libra season, so the first Libra Moon episode will be uploaded a little later than I usually would. Just wanted to let y’all know.
