Welcome to Electric Lamassu.
What's a Lamassu?
Lamassus are the giant alabaster sculptures of winged bulls and lions with human heads that stood guard at important doorways in Assyrian palaces in Mesopotamia nearly 3,000 years ago. The original images that inspired these powerful beasts came from the Sumerian zodiac almost 5,000 years ago.
The Met possesses two lamassus (one bull, one lion), from Nimrud, Iraq, each with three horns wrapped around their crowns. Being in the presence of these beasts activates a powerful response in my nervous system. In turn, I am filled with wonder that the human body creates electricity, and when we harness our electricity, it is grounding and healthy.
astrology & tarot
Similarly, astrology is an ancient system that can give you a dynamic way to work with the steady and changing energies within yourself, your environment, and the universe. One's birth chart is an individualized map for self-discovery, acceptance, and problem-solving.
In "Hot Pants," James Brown sings, "you got to use what you got to get just what you want." I would argue that does not have to be via short shorts, but your natal astrology chart! Let me help you work with the energies of your original cosmic map, and figure out how to ride the waves of transiting planets and progressions.
Tarot is another way to use intelligence and intuition to reveal what is hidden, by interpreting combinations of images and numbers. Alejandro Jodorowsky writes, "the tarot clarifies; it shows the will of the client and helps to uncover what is inside of him." I can help you to examine this information and make suggestions about how to answer your own questions.
