Vedic astrologers have long known that the Nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, have an intoxicating effect on consciousness. They are outcastes or artisans in the Indian Caste system, and thus represent alternative systems of thought that exist in the shadows, outside of the mainstream. When these shadow planets area associated with the planets of consciousness they often incite pure genius, and at other times shear madness. The sages of India say we are all drunkards: the only thing that separates us is the quality of the wine we drink! This class will show both the illuminative and delusional power of the Nodes of the Moon to prepare the consciousness for its ascent to the light, or descent into darkness.
