bibliomancy for the Sun into Sagittarius

“Matthew’s entire world is concentrated in this still, small space next to the river.  Here is everywhere, his inspiration taking him out of the boundaries of his meagre individual self, and uniting him with the Whole that is existence.  Suddenly, he is river, plains, hills, and sky, as the earthy goat-god of the woods is infused with an angelic presence.  Such is Matthew’s call.  His pen will fly across the page, without him even knowing what he is writing.  The Word will speak through him; he is merely its enchanted mouthpiece.  Such is Grace.”

(John Carrol, Ego & Soul on Poussin’s Matthew)
