Don Cerow: Putting Starlight Back Into Myth

Don Cerow: Putting Starlight Back Into Myth
@ Joyce Beers Community Center Apr 11 @ 7:30 pm-10:00pm

“When our ancestors gazed upon the stars thousands of years ago they looked up into the center of Creation and saw a mighty Dragon, a great celestial serpent with wings circling ceaselessly above them, night after night, century after century:” so says SDAS’ April speaker, Don Cerow, And that’s a great way to start a lecture.

Don will lead us through the importance of this simple astronomical observation that helped facilitate the study of the calendar, navigation, farming and social organization. The circuit of the seasons was marked by this cadence with the moving center guarding the position of the equatorial and zodiacal circle for literally thousands of years. The secret of the circle was hidden in its center, so its true center had to be accurately observed and determined or the entire system would be off.

This is a presentation about discovery, following the mythology of various cultures as it evolved into astrology and modern astronomy, focusing primarily on what today’s astrologers would today call the Ages of Gemini, Taurus and Aries. Don is author of the recently released (and impressive) When the Dragon Wore the Crown, a ground breaking book that covers a period of over six thousand years. The book opens and closes with the Chinese mythological tradition and touches on Sumerian, Babylonian, Phoenician, Hindu, Norse, Native American and even Mayan myths, weaving together many of their celestial serpentine similarities.

Don’s interest in astrology has been how astrology evolved from the mythology and astronomy of ancient civilizations. He’s produced shows for radio and TV including a multi-media show for planetariums. He is a certified NCGR Level IV astrologer and a featured speaker at conferences.
