Epic poem, Gilgamesh, discussed on Talk Cosmos


Tune in Saturday, November 14th at 6 p.m. for Talk Cosmos, as host Sue Rose Minahan brings attention to the oldest written existing story, Gilgamesh, an epic poem based on the historical King Gilgamesh, ruling Sumerian Uruk  (modern day Iraq) in 2700 BC.   Initially the epic poem was shared orally, and written product from the “cradle of civilization” begun in Sumeria, or Mesopotamia as the Greeks later called this region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (the heart of modern Iraq). People centered there roughly 6,000 BC, and the first city states beginning in ancient Sumeria, around 4,000 BC.  The invention of writing took place there c. 3500 BC.   The oldest existing versions of this poem date to c 2000 BC, in Sumerian cuneiform.  The more complete versions date to c. 700 BC, in the Akkadian language.

The purpose compelling humanity throughout the ages to revisit Gilgamesh centers on heroic deeds that brought him to express a fear of his mortal death, and how to acquire eternal life.  A theme strongly connected to the energies of the Scorpio archetype the sun transits currently.  Intense Scorpio energies drive to find more life-force, building empowerment for a regenerated life to overcome death, either at the ending of a cycle or beyond in transformation of that cycle.

This extraordinary literature’s impact will be discussed with Astrologer/Host Suen and a new guest, Susanna Lowbeer, L.Ac from Portland, Oregon.  Susanna’s a healing artist, alchemical creator, renaissance woman with a multi-faceted approach to her life’s work through the lens of healing in the capacity of an acupuncturist, silversmith, potter, and musician — all in the service to the healing arts.  Deeply passionate in astrology and all things mythological and magical, she delves into astrology focus of mythological astronomy, studying astrological talismans with Astrologer Gemini Brett.    She believes life is art and all art is healing, and marries her love of astrology, metalsmithing, and gemology by creating bespoke Talismans.

Talk Cosmos is your opportunity to ponder realms of what Carl Jung called the collective unconsciousness that’s shared through time to the present…all through the lens of Sue’s lifetime of peering into astrology.

“Thankfully, I discovered Evolutionary astrology. Its perspective points directly to our unique personal spiritual soul growth…driven by our aligned intentions.  Its promising purpose of soul growth ignited an entirely alive Zodiac. Captured, I felt compelled to study the deep significance of astrological application,” said Sue.

Sue is your guide to focusing the Cosmos kaleidoscope. In the words of Einstein, “Energy’s never destroyed, energy only changes.”
