Christmas Origins: Your Weekly Woo Woo
Christmas…a time for family, friends and good will towards men. But how did it all come about? History has proven that it is not really the Birth of Christ on December 25th, so how did this happen? We dig in and look at the Pagan origins of the holiday. The original festival Saturnalia in Rome all the way to how a 1933 Coca-Cola ad shaped the way we celebrate even today!
Lauren walks us through the Astrology for Christmas & NYE 2013 – and boy is there a lot going on up there. Cardinal Cross, Venus in Retrograde, Mars in Libra, 4 planets all at the exact same degree in Capricorn…whew! This is good stuff to know ahead of time and be prepared. We also, dig into the Astrology and ASTRONOMY of the Christmas. The 3 wise men – where they Men or actually the stars in the constellation of Orion’s belt? The similarity of Jesus’ story to other, more ancient ‘christ’ figures. As well as the significance of the numbers 12 & 30!
And this week in Woo Woo in the World we discuss Hawaii banning GMO’s, New Mexico becoming the 17th State to make Gay Marriage official, Pres. Obama and his message to the Sochi 2014 Olympics and finally the best story to wrap up a holiday show…a boy and his dog.
Happy Holidays, er, Saturnalia! To you and yours and thanks for watching Your Weekly Woo Woo in 2013 – here’s to an amazing 2014!!
YOUR WEEKLY WOO WOO
Your Weekly conversation about what is going on OUT THERE – Astrology, Tarot, Reiki, Numerology, Chakras…if it’s got some woo woo going on, we’re going to talk about it!!
Hosted by Actor / Producer & Metro Detroit Native, Jenn Wilson. She has been a Sci-Fi/Fantasy fan since the original Star Wars (And let’s be honest, THE FORCE, is just concentrated WooWoo, right?) Once she booked her first professional acting gig – not for any crazy talent – because the Director thought she looked like Dana Scully…well it was a done deal. Genre nerd for LIFE. Creator of her own Award winning Sci-Fi webseries – GUIDES – combines Jenn’s love of SciFi, Astrology, History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, strong women and good solid comedy. Jenn is thrilled to be a part of TheStream family and the opportunity to continue to talk about all things Woo Woo on Your Weekly Woo Woo. Jenn plans to talk about all of her favorite esoteric topics, without all the esoteric-y talk. Basically the goal is to have great fun spreading the mantra “Let’s bring this New Age hippie madness to the masses”!!
Jenn is joined weekly by Astrologer Lauren Maxwell Matthews. She had an instant interest in astrology, from her first exposure as a child. Aste dimensional graph of the universe and reflected to us in the stars. She didn’t mean to learn it, shejust couldn’t help it. As Lauren got older her interest continued to grow, and at some point she went from being the one asking questions about astrology, to the one giving answers. When she realized she was really helping people by translating for them a new insight into their unique souls and life paths, she had an insight about her own life path: It’s no accident Lauren speaks this language! She is supposed to translate for people who want to understand the knowledge astrology has to offer us. And she loves it!
“Astrology is just another language, a beautiful mathematical language printed on the three dimensional graph of the universe and reflected to us in the stars.” – Lauren Maxwell Matthews
