Happy Thai Pongal wishes to all my friends, fans and family around the world. Pongal is technically the first day of the Tamil new year.
Traditionally On this day we honour the Sun god, bless crops and fields..and symbolically do work in the fields. Following day is Mattu-Pongal.. (Madu / Mattu means Cow in Tamil.. and it is a day to honour the 2nd most important thing for a farmer, next to The Sun.. which is cows/ cattle).
Those celebrating will be getting up early, have a shower, wear clean / new cloths, visit temple, and also cook milk-rice in the light of the Sun.. offer it to the Gods..then share in the meal with family and friends. `Pongal’ is the act of the boiling milk-rice frothing to the surface in the pot.. and it also is the name of the milk-rice dish itself.. It is the act of the auspicious cooking completion (as food is sacred and a blessing).
DrWhoLondon: Child of Promise! What’s that got to do with Esoteric blogs & magic, you ask? Well.. as you know I have one foot in the real of sci-fi & fantasy, video film making etc. I started a DrWho fan series back in Winter 2013.. and it is full of occult & magical storylines and references. (we took a Dalek and filmed it on top of Glastonbury Tor and named it `Dalek-Om’ for haven’s sake.. and we have had meditating Cybermen in AfterLife !)
This story `Child of Promise’ is about some Alien Baby and Alien Archangels having a big ol adventure on Earth.. tangled up with our Occult Doctor (that’ll be me!).
I must confess.. in the 4 years we have been filming and editing these stories, some of our `stories’ have come true.. Like for example.. my sister giving birth to a baby boy on 21st December last year ..(day of Winter Solstice when we worship Sun-child / Child of promise). Well..apart from every child birth being magical.. why is this so significant, you ask?
Well.. I started working on this `Child of promise’ story.. a good 15 months *before* my little nephew was born. You do the calculations…and tell me that wasn’t our magical story manifesting! Not only that, last Christmas, the streets of London were full of decorations..in the form of Angels.. giant ones hovering above our heads in Piccadilly Circus and Oxford street and so on..
So yeah.. I wrote about it 15 months ago..and it came true..on both counts..bang on the day of Winter Solstice. (the story stalled and took a year for me to get back edit and upload).
This by far is the best example I can catalogue about my magic coming true.. So that’s why.. am sharing this here. enjoy.
Bright Solar Blessings
“The TARDIS breaks out of a wormhole, followed by strange artefacts, and crash lands on Earth. A naked man is found unconscious on woodland floor, in the throws of purple regeneration energy. Meanwhile a half metal-masked woman is stumbling in the woods, about to give birth. What connects the two is a mysteries metal horned alien. A guardian Angel or a soul stealing demon?
Note: There is some (male rear view) nudity & themes of child birth featured in this film. Those who may be easily offended by such are advised to refrain from watching this fan film.
This minisode is the prologue to our fan series#2.
Stay tuned to see another Doctor materialise in Earl’s Court with a new robot dog K90, and the coming of Archangels of Time.. on the hunt for The Child of Promise!

One other site who reported this is:
Jupiter & Venus are said to be the most beneficial planets of all..and they conjunct today at 08:15am (GMT / UT) in the sign of Scorpio.
Internet is buzzing with posts about observing this – here’s some clear info.
Jupiter & venus will be rising very close in the East at 5:58am GMT. (if you are facing East, it will be to the right of East). They will be very close to one another but the actual conjunction is at 8:15am. So you might think you have from 5:58 am to 8,15am to watch this. But No! Sunrise (in London) is at 7:11am. That’s also in the East and even before the sun rises..the light of brightening eastern horizon will start to be so string that compared to this pre-sunrise light, the little dots of Jupiter & venus will not be seen. (you don’t see stars in day time for same reason.. sunlight drowns it out!)
So to be safe, I’d say you have between 5.58am and about 6.30am to spot the Venus & Jupiter conjunction.
As you know Jupiter rules Sagittarius , and Venus rules Taurus & Libra. So people of these signs will have the biggest impact from this beneficial aspect. Oh..and Scorpios…whose sign is where all this is happening.
To be honest..because 2 of the most beneficial planets are involved, everyone is going to be positively aided by this stellar blessings…if you are open, optimistic and willing to receive that (traits of sagittarius there!).
Check your own birth charts..and look at the spot of 7’32” Scorpio.. that’s where this is happening.. See what house that falls in..that’s the sector of your life that will feel gain the most from this..(ie health, self, wealth, work, romance, career, friends etc..).
Another major astrology news..very excited to tell you that 31st January 2018 happens to be a Blue moon (2nd full moon in same calendar month) AND also a total Solar Eclipse in the sign of Leo. More details & analysis/ forecasts will be added here in this same blog post so come back and check in a few weeks.
ps. the second Blue moon in 2018 occurs on 31st March 2018. More on that and eclipses soon.
Please do share this news so magicians & ritualists can take full stellar advantage of this.

The Horned Goddess – photoshoot project!
Hi all.. Horns & Antlers are a power symbol in nature for many animals.. and used for protection. It’s not just sported by male animals.. The deer may only have males (stags) having elaborate Antlers.. but Cows, goats, sheep, Bulls..
also have horns..
In pagan spirituality, we honour and worship many horned God figures.. (Herne, Pan, cernunnos).. but few horned/ antlered Goddesses are seen.. (Elena, Baast).
I saw the art work that my friend posted on facebook ..(of a Horned Goddess image)..and it reminded me of my long term wish to create some new photographic images of Horned Goddess..
As you can see from attached pics, I’ve worn Antlers many times over the past 13-14 years ..(since my eh.. obsession(!) with Hern the Hunter started ..resulting in the founding of woodland ritual shamanic group Hern’s Tribe in 2004). But what I really like is to do now is build up plenty of images of women in Antlers & Horns..! So.. am hereby launching this project!
So what am I looking for?
1. Ladies who are interested in being `Horned Goddesses’
(ie dress up, put make up, wear costumes, shamanic props..and pose for photos in natural settings.. woodland..parks..riversides.. hills.. forts.. neolithic sites.. by castles..caves…etc).
–Age/ acting ability – all welcome.
–Magical/Pagan? – nope.. if you are happy to pose as Antlered Goddesses..then am not complaining. ..as long as you can take artistic directions.
2. Crew / Team of creative people – to get involved and help me co-create this. I have a vision..but need help. Make up artists, costume creators / lenders, prop-makers, drivers with cars, supporters! Location scouts..
3. Costs – let’s be creative and innovative..and keep costs to minimum.. Everyone involved can come out of this project with brilliant works for their portfolios, experiences. Unless we have someone who can be a generous Benefactor, or unless we set up a crowdfunder to cover costs.. we just have to cover our own expenses, own travel cards. Only exception will be if I drive out, then i can take 3 people (essential to that shoot) in my car.. (Crowd funding, some 2018 calendar sales are all possibilities.. but I like to get started with shoots soon).
While some planning/ development is needed, am not one for delaying this any longer.. Of course it will be ongoing throughout Autumn/ Winter and into Spring/Summer of 2018..but it starts NOW! 🙂 Let’s aim to get some of this done..in Autumn.. before all the leaves change colour and drop.. 🙂
If you are working with me..then be ready to run with the Horses & Stags.. or plod on with the Turtles.. My policy is …`shoot fast..and think later’ :-p
So don’t think too much.. Follow your intuition/ gut.. and jump in ..if interested..!
Reply to this message and I’ll start coordinating..or send me a private message ..or to one of my pagan `pages’ and we’ll take it from there.
Bright Earthy Blessings

Dear all, some staggering news – In 2018, there will be a phase during which no less than 6 planets will be in retrograde motion! Yikes. That’s going to be one intense period (7th -18th August 2018). Of course there are many other 5-planets / 4 planets retrograde periods also taking place.
As in years before, I have created an extensive infograpics ! (took me 3 hrs doing this manually working out data and creating the graphics! So please ..if you share this, kindly give my blog http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net a mention / credit).
And come back to THIS blog post, as I add more details & analysis of the retrograde motions/ dates/ forecasts.
ps. In 2018, I will begin to offer my astrology chart / forecasting services to individuals
Major shift coming up (astrology forecast):
Jupiter is changing sign (after a year of being in Libra) and moving into Scorpio. That’s going to have a major impact on Scorpios & Sagittarians.. Librans will have enjoyed the positive influences, gifts and blessings that Jupiter (higher benefic) brings for a whole year.. And now it’s the turn for Scorpios to enjoy those benefits for the next 12 months 🙂
As for Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter- they will have felt the energies and qualities of Libra in their lives..striving for balance, harmony, beauty. But as Jupiter enters Scorpio…weelll.. Sagittarians are going to get all intense, go through some deep transformations, will be sorting out their powerbase, and generally gain authority and be in positions of power.. (if all that Saturn influences for the past 3 and a half years has been duly processed by them).
A little warning to others.. You know how you always are wary of Scorpios.. ? 😉 Well.. for the next year, give Sagittarians the same cautious respect..or you’ll find yourself in complex power & manipulative games you can not hope to win with them.. unless of course you are a Scorpio that is :-p

Astro-Alert for next few days!!!
We have a number of squares taking place..and it may prove to be initially stressful..So just hold it together. Squares generally create energies and influences that can only be resolved by taking action, rather than holding it in.
Here’s a quick note on these.
1. Mercury in Libra -squares- Pluto in Capricorn (affects Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn).
2. Sun in Libra-squares-Pluto in Capricorn (affects Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn).
3. Mars in Virgo- squares-Saturn in Sagittarius (affects Aries, Virgo, Capricorn, sagittarius).
Although these zodiac signs are directly affected.. (because that’s where the planet is currently transiting through or those are the signs that are ruled by said planets), generally everyone is influenced by any aspects.. First rule of *astrology – everyone is influenced.
You’ll need to be aware of the following areas / aspects of your everyday lives..Bear in mind, in general,
-Mercury rules the mind & communications;
-Pluto is scorpionic and governs transformation, sex, intensity, power & control;
-Sun governs our whole being, soul, energy, health;
-Mars affects energy, masculine issues, new ventures, fights/ wars; and
-Saturn gives us hard lessons, governs long term stability, authority issues, shadows, fears, limitations.
*(ps. am not entering into debates here about if astrology is real or not.. That’s for you to decide..and discus elsewhere. I write these for those who belief and follow it..and can do with some advance notice).
There is also a major shift coming.. Jupiter is changing sign (after a year of being in Libra) and moving into Scorpio. More on that in another post:
