Y is for Yoni - A-Z Challenge

NOTE: I have had some people say they can't play the video. If yours doesn't work, try Windows Media Player , a FREE download.
The word Yoni covers a range of meanings, including: place of birth, source, origin, spring, fountain, place of rest, repository, receptacle, seat, abode, home, lair, nest, stable.

Yoni is also the basis for the Western-used adjective yonic, which is the counterpart to the term phallic. Examples of yonic symbolism can be seen in Georgia O'Keefe's flower paintings.

The Aryans believed that a child is born from a yoni of stars - constellations that prevailed during the child's birth -- identifying some 50,000 astrological yonis that favour a child's birth. It is from this yoni of stars that my Staria Melodies are born.

The following is an example of a memorial melody created from the birth date of the subject, along with family photos supplied by her surviving family members. I've been doing this since my early 20s, usually putting the melody on a cassette (do they even use them, anymore?)  By using the exact date, time, and place of the birth, each individual's yoni of stars is used to create their own personal melody. The lighter support orchestration comes from the 'grace note' stars within the yoni and complete the melody.  

For each special moment of your life -- birth, marriage, or death -- the heavens resound with a new celestial melody, a subtle thrumming of heavenly strength and support meant for you and you, alone. It's a song that resonates within your soul, a song that brings you joy and inner peace throughout your life's journey. I'll bet you wonder how your astrological yoni melody sounds; don't you?
