The Astral Guides

astral guides

Our dear friend/cousin, Obi Kaufmann, he of Coyote and Thunder and Juniper Ridge, is releasing The Astral Guide cards today. If you have any sense of mind, you’ll go follow the links here and buy them:

The Astral Guides work with light to help with particular quandaries. Each card is assigned a star, or a constellation of stars, that when in season, benefit from moving between the Earth and the arm of the Milky Way it lives in. Begin by shuffling the deck well, concentrating on the dilemma. Always consult the deck with specific intention. Draw one, three or five cards depending on the depth and importance of the quandary at hand. Arrange the cards in order, laterally so the orienting symbols on both sides of the card line up. Count the numbers, consider how the orienting symbols align, recognize the seasonality of each card, move through the poetry. If the numbers add up to an even sum, if the orienting symbols don’t align, or if the season isn’t right, don’t pay too much attention to the reading: the door needs to be open correctly for the guides to grant clear divination.

Benmont

Tom Petty

Benmont Tench (second from the left, above) is obviously the coolest of Heartbreakers, playing organ not only behind Tom Petty but for a million other people as well. Last week he was on Marc Maron’s WTF, so listen to him talk shop on Petty, Johnny Cash and his new album. He’s fantastic.

And I suppose it’s fitting to mention that tonight is a full moon and he DID NOT play on Tom Petty’s solo album, Full Moon Fever, despite begging Petty to do so. He talks about it in the podcast.

I’m lucky enough to have a beautiful Audrey Kendahl Kuhn in my house (1/150 of the Painted Desert) but can’t seem to find any more of her work from this area for sale on the internet. If you have leads, let me know. Or if you have one in your house, take a picture!
