“The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of understanding.”
Hermes was Greek god of wisdom, wealth, trade, luck, fertility, language, animal husbandry, thieves, travelers, sleep, and providing safe passage to death. Mercury was Hermes’ Roman version, messenger of gods and ruler of Gemini. He was Thoth in ancient Egypt, a lunar god and patron of science, literature, wisdom, and invention. Loki was the Norse god of mischief. In Tarot, Hermes is a Magician at a crossroads with crucial decisions to make and critical actions to take. Merlin, Gondolf, Harry Potter, and Dumbledore are modern versions. Having metaphysical tools and mystical knowledge enables ALL of us to choose our thoughts, feelings, what to do, and who to be.
Hermes was reputedly a real person who lived for 350 years in the flesh in ancient Egypt. Refusing to age, Hermes misspent much of his adolescence as a trickster and petty thief. He was ‘Puck’ in ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’. He’s Peter Pan, a Gemini, who never grows old. At 76, I’m no longer an adolescent. Every Peter needs and depends on a Wendy. My Wendy is Joanna, an Aries with Taurus rising. I call her ‘Rambull’. I’m a Gemini with Scorpio rising. She calls me ‘a piece of work in progress’. Wendy is a Virgo type, a practical and responsible friend who darns Peter’s socks, sews his shadow back on, and patiently awaits his return as he flies away to Neverland whenever he chooses. Wendy brings an awareness that balances Peter’s ambiguous and ambivalent thoughts and feelings with clarity and good sense. Michael Jackson actually lived in Neverland. Priscilla and Liz were his Wendys. Johnny Depp is a Peter Pan who played Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Carribean, Charlie in the Chocolate Factory, and many other child centered characters. Hermes and Aphrodite gave birth to Hermaphrodite. David Bowie has flourished and blossomed in musical creativity, originality, and androgynous performance art.
Many alchemists tried to turn Lead to Gold. Alchemy is not transforming lead into gold. Hermes turned Saturn (Lead) into Sun (Gold) by building sound structures on solid foundations, being disciplined in his life, and focusing on a spiritual quest to prepare mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to connect to any and all others and our world. Alchemy is a set of magical formulas, tools, and esoteric instruction for becoming healthier, happier, and more fulfilled in life. Alchemy is a mastery of mental forces by transmuting one mental vibration into another. As our Sun passes through Gemini ~ May 21st to June 21st,, it’s the perfect time to share ourselves on a soul level with everyone and anyone who is able!
Every thought is made up of individual cells; physically, mentally, and spiritually connected to all other cells on all other planes at the same time. Relationships between cells cause energy and matter to vibrate on different planes at various times and places. Our brains are our cell communication hardware while our minds transmit and receive messages. By combining physical, mental, and spiritual planes, we can connect any one with any and every one at any time and any place. We achieve wholeness by letting go of fear, taking a leap of faith, making connections, tuning our links, and creating and nourishing healthy environments.
“While ALL is in “The ALL”, it is equally true that “The ALL” is in ALL. “To him who truly understands this truth hath come great knowledge”. The inner nature of “The ALL” is unknowable and indefinable. That’s why humanity needs anthropomorphic gods and institutionalized religion. Spirit is the essence that embodies “ALL”. Spirituality requires the recognition, realization, and manifestation of Great Spirit within and without.
Hermes Seven Metaphysical Laws
“Law of Polarity”: “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”
The ‘Laws of Attraction’ work best when you know what you want and your intentions are clear. Anyone can turn negative thinking into positive circumstances by letting go of fear, having clear intent, choosing a quest, and doing the work. “The Secret” is only secret to the uninitiated. Polarity is spiritual magnetism.

GURU of GARBAGE (Click for short video ~ Good Day NY)
Opposites are extremes of the same basic substance with varying degrees between. Where does heat end and cold begin? Where does darkness leave off and light begin? What about positive and negative, hard and soft, sharp and dull, noisy and quiet, high and low? The same principle operates on a mental plane. Love and hate are simply degrees of the same thing. In the middle are shades of like and dislike. Vibrations of hate can be transmuted into vibrations of love through the art of polarization, a phase of alchemy known and practiced by ancient and modern masters.
Hermes other Six ‘Secrets’
Correspondence, Mentalism, Vibration, Rhythm, Cause, Effect, and Gender are all Hermes Laws. Practicing metaphysical principles anyone to explore, examine, and explain the unexplained, and to execute any and all thoughts, ideas, and visions.
Having inner and outer wisdom has enabled critical thinkers through history to unlock mysteries using Hermetic thought and principles. Hermetic masters possess knowledge of transcendental astronomy called astrology, transcendental chemistry called alchemy, and transcendental psychology called mystic psychology. Confucius, Galileo, Plato, Pythagoras, Aristotle, Nostradamus, Leonardo Da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and Joseph Campbell were all Grand Masters of Hermetic thought and principles.
Astrology is a symbolic system that compares and contrasts our heavens with affairs of man on earth. Astrology unlocks ancient and modern mysteries using Hermes second principle of correspondence “As Above, So Below, as below, so above”. An infinite variety of characters, plots, and tales are mirrored in a lot of dysfunctional humans, unable to see the forests from the trees. Too many lost souls idolizing Golden Calves on brass plated pedestals and worshiping Sacred Cows on altars of nonsense has caused our human race to become a race against self-created bad shit happening. Our planet’s sixth extinction is nearing more quickly than we think.
Know thyself. Cultivate clear vision. Make wise choices. Nourish real relationships. Choose right uses of will power. Act healthily. Maintain positive attitudes. Balance courage, strength, wisdom, and grace with critical thinking, real feelings, and right actions. Common sense without good sense is nonsense. Solid faith builds strong structures on sound foundations. We can change our destiny and the destiny of our planet on a cellular level by raising and diminishing our vibration, polarity, and rhythm.
