The theme of the first issue focused on its first side - Knowledge. Which of the sides would belong to the second issue, however, meant a difficult decision between Courage and Will. In the end, based on the research of many correspondence systems, we chose Courage as a side more related and in warm harmony with last year's summer theme of Fire. Nevertheless - just as Fire and Water intertwined in previous issues and flames of the fire caressed the water surface - Courage and Will will blend slightly this year as well, therefore you can read about Will in several chapters already in this issue.
And since everything is connected and the partial principles always reach towards unity, we will shine a light on alchemy not only in one of its phases on the journey to the Philosopher's Stone, but also in its entirety through the symbolism that can be found in an article about magical Prague. As the capital of the Czech Republic, it points to the Czech national tree, Linden. We deliberately chose the tree of the season so that the products from it support health at the turn of spring and summer, when the weather is still changing wildly and the immunity of many of us needs to be boosted and our moods desire a fresh spark.
If you do not have the opportunity to look at the alchemical summer house in Prague during the time of Pre-summer and Summer, you can try to visit it in one of your dreams or via astral travelling. These are the techniques we talk about in our chapters. We will also travel between the pages and from the Czech basin we will look into many other cultures: we will present Germanic runes, Nordic and Slavic dolls, we will light a coal under the Egyptian Kyphi, warm ourselves in ancient Greece and Jewish mysticism will carry us to the light of the sky. Finally, of course, we will look at the stars and focus on the characteristics and attunement of the planet Uranus.
We wish you a pleasant reading!
