The book of aquarius is interesting, to say the least.I cannot speak on the truth of it, though. It is as many alchemical texts are: open to
interpretation. Further reflection, re-reading and interpretation over time is key to piercing the veil in symbolic texts.
I prefer the Chymical Wedding or the Open Entrance for my contemplation of alchemy.
The rosy cross may have used some vapours and humours in the wet work, but I do not speak lightly of them, or as if I know the wet method, myself.
I practice a subtle internal alchemy, treating the body as the vessel of yore.
Both, to be honest. They spoke of different things. Edgar spoke of what he felt was there, and "Nostradamus" may have been a whole group of sibyls,
instead of one man.
The nostradamic prophecies were a huge source of fascination for me as a child, as well as Edgar Cayce's work.
I draw upon the Dharma of the Fierce Guru, Diamond Cutter Sutra, and the gnostic practice a lot in my recent work. I also successfully invoked BABALON
recently, with absolutely stunning results.
