What strange times we are going through … how are the planetary alignments for you?

These are ‘dog days’. Days when, in ancient times, the dog star Sirius rose with the solar dawn. Hot days, days when – “the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies.” (Brady’s Clavis Calendaria, 1813).

In Chinese astronomy it is the rising of the Vermilion Bird of the South – who we know better as the Phoenix.

The next Alternative Wednesday falls in these dog days – what will it bring forth? Come along and see. Usual rules, same time, same place.
