Miscellaneous Alchemical Symbols in the News

 Vénus, Lucifer

Caveat! It is very important to bear in mind that I am merely saying (to paraphrase William Grimstad) that the presentation of these photographs and words have interest insofar as they are the recreations of hermetic-alchemical symbols. I am not suggesting that the cat "Venus" is the devil or was intentionally named in order to invoke the devil. Similarly, I am not suggesting that Rush Limbaugh ought to be taken seriously, nor that "bath salts" are really somehow to blame in the various face-eating attacks that ushered in the "Summer of the Gun."
