Maya's Book Corner - Astrology Favorites
by Maya del Mar

There are two books which I want to mention, both by Barbara Hand Clow. One of them is from my bookshelf, and I reviewed it some time ago. I bring it up again, because of the importance of Chiron at this time:

Chiron, Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets by Barbara Hand Clow. Llewellyn Publications, St. Paul, MN. 1987.

This was the first Chiron book I read, just after it was published, and it is still the best. Barbara Hand Clow has a unique talent for communicating on a number of energy planes, and at the same time grounding her communication with science and astrology. In her book, she embodied Chiron, and through her words enabled me to embody that maverick visitor to the solar system. At the time I assimilated this book, I had just broken my foot—a Chiron wound!

I found reading Barbara’s book very exciting, as Chiron’s energy literally surged through me.

This book was published in 1987, the year of the Harmonic Convergence. In the introduction, Carl Llewellyn Weschcke says, "These books are intended to provide insight into the critical needs and the critical decisions that must be made. They are "active agents," bringing to the reader knowledge which will liberate the higher forces inside each person to the end that we may fulfill that for which we were intended."

Indeed, Barbara’s books are much more than descriptions and explanations. They are liberators. We need them now, and this is why I bring them up.

I am excited about just receiving Barbara’s newest book:

Alchemy of Nine Dimensions, Decoding the Vertical Axis, Crop Circles, and the Mayan Calendar by Barbara Hand Clow and Gerry Clow. Hampton Roads Publishing, Charlottesville, VA, 2004.

Barbara has touched on these subjects in a prior book, The Pleiadian Agenda. Now she amplifies the subject of dimensions, and together with her husband, Gerry, provides exercises and meditations to help us move into those dimensions. The work should move slowly, say the Clows, because it can open unknown spaces in us, which must be assimilated.

Barbara channels the Pleiadians, who are generally credited with creating the crop circles. Their purpose, says Barbara, is to help us move into those dimensions. Why England? Because the central vortex of patriarchal ignorance is located there ("London is a man’s town," from a poem I learned as a child), and most needs healing. Mexico, for instance, is already attuned to the much-needed feminine energy. Barbara takes us through many of the crop circle patterns, and describes their dimensional functions. To one who has been much intrigued by crop circles, this section of the book is totally fascinating.

This book, in fact, is packed with interesting and relevant information. Those who have read The Pleidian Agenda will be familiar with many of the concepts. I haven’t had time to read it before going to press, let alone give it the study which it needs. But I couldn’t wait to turn you readers on to The Alchemy of the Nine Dimensions.
