ERIK SATIE: A MELANCHOLY TAURUS!

Erik_Satie_-_BNF1-croppedEric Alfred Leslie Satie was born in Paris on May 17, 1866. An eccentric French composer and pianist during the 20th Century Parisian avant-garde, he was referred to as a gymnopedist in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnope’dies, published in Paris, starting in 1888.

Mr. Satie left a remarkable body of music and writings.  After many years of heavy drinking, he died of cirrhosis of the liver on July 1, 1925.

ETERNAL OM!

Light a candle and ride the Eternal OM of Universal goodness and mercy.  Rejoice and expect a new beginning.

ABUNDANTIA!

The horn of plenty originated in the time of Greek mythology, and is symbolic of harvest, prosperity, abundance and nourishment.

Let us remember to express gratitude to the Goddess for granting us favor by filling our vessels with plenty.File:Rubens Abundance.jpg

OLYMPIA!

In classical myth, Altis was the sacred sanctuary of Olympia, and monumental site for Greek heroes, and the ancient games.  The first Olympic Games were held every four years in honor of Zeus, and date back to 776 B.C.

THE FIRST OLYMPICS

Various myths have been written about the foundation of the ancient Olympics.  One myth states that Hercules founded the first games, but the myth of King Pelops’ victory against Oenomaus in a chariot race is an alternative.

NIKE:  THE DIVINE CHARIOTEER

NIKE, the Winged Goddess of Victory, Speed, and Strength is personified in a bronze chariot, guided by four horses.  She holds a staff graced by a magnificent bird, or a flaming torch.

The ancient games showcased many events, but Chariot racing was held at the hippodrome, a Greek stadium for chariot racing, and was a major event in honor of the Goddess Nike.

BATTLE OF THE TITANS

When the Titans and Olympians declared war, Nike was among Zeus’ allies, and she assumed the role of divine charioteer.  Her participation in the battle signified a symbol of “victory,” which included competitions, military, and athletics.

Let us honor the first Olympians for bravery, perseverance, strength, victory, and speed.

O’ Mighty Nike

We petition your wisdom and favor

to guide our chariots steady, and straightforward

with divine and valiant speed, toward victory,

triumph, trophies and medallions
