Notes and Editorial Reviews

So many of us wonder about the big picture questions in life. Why are we here? What is the best I can do in my lifetime? Cosmic Wheel of the Zodiac, with lyrics by astrologer Benita Rainer, presents a cosmic rumination for meditation upon these great questions. These songs guide you through the labyrinth of the Cosmos, which, as perfectly attested to in “As above, so below,” is also the labyrinth of your mind; as what is without has its genesis in what is within. Let yourself relax down into what are the key feature blueprints of your life’s sun sign. The twelve songs in the Cosmic Wheel cycle cover a universal span, from each sign’s deepest motivation for love, to each soul’s most heartfelt desire for spiritual expression. Journey with Read more Aries, the first primal force of the calendar year, to Taurus’ expression of security, and onward to Gemini’s mercurial desire for freedom. Experience the depths of Cancer’s protection, the instinctual and strident soul creativity of Leo, the amazing Virgo the virgin’s cosmic genesis, and Libra’s search for harmony. Scorpio will take you to depths you’ve never experienced, and, with Sagittarius, you will shoot for the stars. Catch Capricorn’s goat -- if you can -- and Aquarius’ wide-ranging humanity, before experiencing the final resolution of the human spirit with Pisces, the completion of the cosmic wheel. Perfect for times when purpose is lost and goals are hard to find, these twelve quintessential musical mandalas will bathe you in cosmic anchor points. Find out what are the intrinsic motivators of your loved ones, and allow each track to revive the lost purposes of your own tribe or village. We are all different, and yet we all share these inner truths as expressed in Margaret Brandman’s transformative melodies. Read less
