The Miracle of the Universe
French archaeologists just discovered an 11,000-year-old wall painting underground in northern Syria which they believe is the oldest in the world. 9000 B.C. It looks like a modernist painting. Some of those who saw it have likened it to work by Paul Klee.
II just experienced one of those glorious moments that adds immeasurably to my faith in the universe. The artist, Paul Klee, came into my consciousness several weeks ago and I didn't know why. I simply had to study his work. Today this discovery of the oldest wall painting known to man was announced and the association was impossible to miss. Then it got even more astonishing as I investigated further. The main thing here is Klee's Sun in Sagittarius at exactly 26 degrees, the galactic center of our Milky Way, where Pluto is positioned now. Klee was an artist, a philosophical man, and a spiritual seeker with a Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Pisces, precisely where the north node of the Moon is now. His natal Uranus is conjunct Saturn transiting in opposition to the node. He's known largely for his whimsy and his detachment from ordinary perception. He had this to say on the subject of evil:
Evil shouldn't be an enemy which triumphs or confounds, but rather a force which converges in the realization of everything. A factor which intervenes in generation and development, like a statement of ethical stability.Then it goes on. Klee's chart has Mercury at 10 degrees Scorpio, where transiting Mercury is retrograde now. When his death was near, which he had known about much earlier, he painted the experience in a series spanning four months
.Death and Fire
As Klee no longer kept up his diaries, it's known from correspondence with his wife that death was omnipresent in his mind. His remaining energy was dedicated exclusively to his work which he carried out in total isolation. He produced a considerable number of pieces in these last four months. His leisure time was given to reading Aeschylus's Oresteia. I'm treasuring this moment, as the oldest official wall painting of mankind is discovered. Art lives.
