Art Relax is Radio Vox Groovy’s flagship program, and our team is working around the clock to make sure this 2-hour slot is worth your while. The aim is to continue to curate a library of over 7,000 songs—making sure that it encompasses everything from prog’s hidden gems to surprises like the newly-discovered “early jazz”. Using this music library, RVG builds wonderful playlists to accompany each show’s 3 art-related themes, all of which are typically chosen by our experienced radio hosts.
With this in mind, we hope that you’ll tune in to listen to our next show!

Archetypes and Astrology
RVG’s new Liminal Spaces program is our first foray into astrology and the archetypal nature of the planets. We started off by exploring the age-old Hermetic axiom, “as above, so below.” In this context, discussing how the stars’ movements seemingly affect our daily lives. In the past, these sorts of ideas weren’t seen as controversial or outlandish. Ancient civilizations practiced astrology for millennia, and it played a part in many significant decisions throughout history, from the founding of Baghdad all the way to the coronation of Elizabeth I of England. But why did astrology enter into a dark age after the Enlightenment period if it was so useful before? And how can we rediscover its secrets and begin to utilize the tradition again?
The first step would be to familiarize yourself with your birth chart. This is essentially a snapshot of the universe as it was at the moment of your birth. Reading it can help elucidate aspects of your life and personality, usually with varying focus depending on which school of astrology you or your teacher adhere to.
To sum up, you will learn new things about both astrology and yourself here. This is where Nina comes in, as she plans to teach you more about the symbolic meanings of the nine planets beginning with the sun.
After that, we made it to the final part of Tuesday’s broadcast and chose to take a break from the previous topic and all its complexities. Instead, we told you about ghosts and their place in British folk-tales and legends. Consider tuning in if you want to learn something before relaxing and listening to the story of the poor black lamb that haunted an Irish family for weeks after a peculiar accident.
