I've just published a new video entitled "Seeing the Star Myths: Sagittarius, the Southern Crown, and Ara the Altar." It is intended to help you find those constellations in the night sky -- and in the ancient Star Myths of the world, in which Sagittarius plays an especially important role.
This video is the third thus far in a series that also includes:
In order to perceive and understand the overwhelming evidence which shows that the world's ancient myths, scriptures and sacred stories are all built upon a foundation of celestial metaphor, it is necessary to be able to envision the various constellations which those ancient myths are referencing.
Sadly, due to a variety of factors, most people today are not able to envision the constellations of our night sky, and are not familiar with their various distinctive features and characteristics.
In this video, we examine the mythologically-important constellations of Sagittarius, the Southern Crown (Corona Australis), and Ara the Altar. We also examine a piece of ancient artwork which shows that the ancients most definitely appear to have been employing the same constellational outlining system which the famous author H. A. Rey (1898 - 1977) published in his excellent guide to the night sky entitled The Stars: A New Way to See Them (first published in 1952).
I hope the video will be helpful to you in your efforts to see the constellations in the night sky -- and in your mind's eye -- and to understand the celestial language spoken by the world's ancient myths, scriptures and sacred stories, in order to hear their timeless message.
