Bell’s Mercury (Picked up at Chevy Chase Wine and Spirits in DC). A 2 of 4. A standard belgian pale ale - the yeast is dominant here with the standard spice/banana esters and some relatively sweet bready malt notes. Relatively highly carbonated and quite simple in the finish - just more of the same profile. A solid beer - but relatively one note, even for the style.

Generally speaking, the sun is our point of consciousness and the farther away a planet is from the sun - all the way from the moon to pluto - the more unconscious and the more collective their respective principle is.

  • The luminaries, sun and moon, describe our personality, our immediate consciousness as well as subconsciousness, our acting and reacting.
  • The personal planets, mercury, venus and mars, develop during socialization, they describe how we think, relate to others and assert ourselves.
  • The social planets, jupiter and saturn, mark the point where our identity meets the collective social world and describes our fears and hopes in interaction with others.
  • The generational planets, uranus, neptune and pluto, indicate principles that influence us on a very fundamental yet very unconscious level, they’re hard to grasp in the own mind.
