Manifestation Mondays: Do You Have a Siren’s Calling?

“She is a mermaid, but approach her with caution, her mind swims at depths most would drown in.” – Unknown

Plunge to new depths today with the underlined hyperlink text that will enhance your collection of thingamabobs.

🧜‍♀️🍴🐚🌊

There is an archetype of the Siren which can be perhaps a bit similar to the Enchantress or Femme Fatale if we consider how this is portrayed in stories we’ve grown up with. Today I wanted to investigate this with the Draconic theme I used in yesterday’s blog post by seeking out related asteroids I could look at through a magnifying glass of my own self study.

What I found was a little different than I expected. I found Asteroid Merman (5456) which I believe will pull in the Divine Masculine energies which I’ve combined with Asteroid Sirene (1009) to embody the Divine Feminine energies, but there is also Asteroid Melusina (373).

I think I will make this a two part series and work on a full blog post devoted solely to Melusine tomorrow on my Teach Me Tuesdays so I can properly cover her with the asteroid. She honestly deserves her own space in my opinion.

Sirene is a Danish derivative taken from the Latin Siren and Greek Σειρήν Seiren which originally meant entangler or binder and was used to describe a rope or cord as well as the action of grabbing, seizing, and enclosing. Greek mythology depicted this archetype as a seductive yet dangerous female who lured passersby in through irresistible singing.

Merman was a derivative of Old and Middle English Meremenin which originally meant mermaid or siren depicted as a legendary creature that is a human male from the waist up and fishlike from the waist down.

Maybe my attraction to the archetype is also because I was born in Clearwater, Florida and as a child you could not get me out of the water. Even now I love my showers and the rainwater shower head when I get in. I used to be a bubble bath junky growing up as well.

Not to mention how much water I drink some days. I’m a 1979 baby! Honestly I kind of want to move back to Florida from Texas, but I might be having a nostalgic past moment.

The Archetypes:

There is in fact a theme here that well some might just not actively recognize while others will. Why the pull towards the Draconic again? It has to do with the fact that through a Draconic Chart analysis we look into the past life which as I’ve said with my lunar nodes we will find more hidden gems as my South Luna Node was Piscean.

That past life karma is revealed also within the Draconic landscape to show what any incarnating soul has brought forth from their previous incarnation to be experienced/resolved in their current incarnation through the North Lunar Node which for me is Virgo.

“Let the sea set you free.” – Unknown

From within this we discover the events, careers, and relationship any individual experiences on their soul path. Which while this is all from the Western rather than Vedic school still holds merit. I’ve spent countless hours examining my Vedic through Magha nakshatra, but sometimes I’m less inclined to investigate the Western.

Draconic positions help us contact and work on our shadow as they indicate where we will have less free will and where our unconscious is being experienced which is always depicted as sources of water be they rivers, oceans, and so forth. The Vedic system displays this dance as Ketu and Rahu. It all builds upon itself similar to the layers of an onion!

Draconic Chart for Asteroid Merman and Sirene

So what we see for me is that Asteroid Merman is within my 1st House of Taurus at 22° with Uranus square Sun and sextile Moon. Asteroid Sirene creates a stellium in the 10th House of Aquarius at 24° with Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter opposition Sun, semisextile Moon, and sesquiquadrate Neptune. That “white dove over troubled waters” symbol is significant!

The degree that Asteroid Sirene is on has previously been covered twice now in blog posts so I encourage everyone to head on over and look at both of those entries. This is really to serve the purpose of not redundantly covering the same information over and over again like a broken record because I’ve rather extensively appealed to the study of this degree now. Now let’s define this in English.

This placement displays an increased need for love and affection. We don’t like to be involved in the drama of others. Challenges are often responded to with a focus on aligning to our essential value systems. We are seeking to improve our relationships by sharing our feelings and speaking from our heart space. Successfully accomplishing this removes the lower frequencies of anger and resentment.

We’ve learned to bury aspects of ourselves which don’t fit in with the world. If our independence or individuality is threatened by a career, relationship, or the societal norms we eventually develop an us against the world mindset. Anything swallowing us whole makes us fight for freedom. This is because we enjoy being a free spirited and childish soul who breaks out of routines.

The last time that Uranus was sesquiquadrate was during 1952-56 influencing humanity. This second phase of post war children offered relative stability and reconstruction. Yet the collective of humanity was torn between post war labor reformist policies of a welfare state and the dreams/fears of a new world that is openly rejecting how inhumane most of us are capable of becoming.

Do you revolt against authority and become anti establishment or do you wish to feel socially secure? Personal freedom is paramount and asserting this right is always a struggle.

The degree itself displays as follows for better understanding. An elixir of flower nectars and mists, of golden rains, dark sleets, and mountain snows, an elixir of waters and light. The waters providing the light with a body where it might open into the fullness of its color. The Throat chakra a ravine down which the light and water rushes into a cave of marvels each color drawn to heal a different ray of darkness. For darkness too has its own dark rainbow.

Communicating gently and with the whole of our being we create within ourselves a healing energy that enlivens us deeply. When we tune in to the unique needs of every situation we become increasingly aware of the direction our actions are taking us.

Becoming saturated with the spiritual light we become increasingly impervious to the forces of destruction. Sensing the direction in which we are headed we search for alternative possibilities which are often not obvious. Work with guardian angel Imamiah and daimon Allocer.

Daimon Allocer is connected with the Eight of Pentacles, Venus, Sage, and Virgo. If you’re working with this daimon you will learn how to utilize the planets in your initiation. Allocer is also helpful in aiding your focus, clear thinking, and establishment of proper boundaries.

I’m laughing because while I was working at one of our sister franchise stores last week the management “saged” the location my first day. One of those Jungian synchronicities!

There is no fixed star, but it’s advised one work with Dioptase crystal. A good message is to remember that our emotions exist in two realms; physical and spiritual. Focus on remembering that when angry, fearful, and suffering from blind ambition we get static on the radio station of our soul. The affirmation should read I moderate myself with inner aim.

I’m wrapping up this with a few ASMR videos that use the siren/mermaid theme for your entertainment. Please pick whichever one strikes your fancy or watch all of them. Have a magical and inspired Monday! 🧜‍♂️🏰

Mermaid ASMR:

Before I go I’d like to share a few more garden updates with everyone which will be brief.

I will be cutting more green, yellow, and purple beans tomorrow as well as checking on the potatoes to see if they’re ready for harvest.
We are still exceptionally abundant in lettuce at present.
New flowers have emerged to share their colors with us and our red zinnias are content out in the front garden.
The roma tomatoes are playing a game of catch up to other veggies in the garden.
The blanket of cosmos flowers is a bright display of yellows and oranges which has attracted a few butterflies, but I’ve not been able to get any selfies of them as they appear shy. And I’m debating on if I should thin my carrots as they’ve also been a bit more of the growth pace of a snail.
I do believe if I’m identifying the leaves and other criteria one of these wildflowers in the backyard garden is borage which I grew years ago to attract bees. In fact I think we have leaf cutter bees in the sage.
The three level tier garden bed out front collpsed after a storm; wood rot! We salvaged and put basil in a pot while the back is still doing very well also.
There is a ladybug in the center of where a sunflower should be growing actually!
The hollyhock was trimmed of atrocious leafminer and our cactus garden is also expressing that the heat is a bit too much!

Sign Spotlight Sundays: Training and Working With Your Dragon

“Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you art crunchy and good with ketchup.” – Unknown

At the end of April we looked at the Rabbit and today we continue on with the mythic Dragon. Use the underlined hyperlink text to ferret out the hidden and well guarded jewels.

🐉💎⚡🏮

Those born in the years 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, and 2000 or the year of the Tatsu/Dragon make up an assemblage of healthy, energetic, stubborn, and excitable individuals who inspire trust in almost anyone through being brave and honest.

People born under this influence possess magical powers of versatility being mystical, intuitive, and artistic on one hand and irritable, stubborn, and impetuous on the other. They may suffer from an unsatisfactory love live which leads to a string of love affairs or multiple marriages. They should protect themselves from excesses opting to remain flexible and accommodating.

Avoid the common quick tempered nature they are known for as well as hypocrisy and they should ultimately land on their feet being successful wherever they go. Dragons are known to be capable of the Midas touch with an inherent knack for attracting financial prosperity or leaving it in their path. During the Chinese New Year street processions honor the Dragon via the Four Benedictions of the East (wealth, virtue, harmony, and long life).

This sign falls under Fugen Bosatsu associated with great conduct instructing that action and conduct are equally as valuable as thought/meditation. Fugen Bosatsu encourages the diligent practice of charity, morals, patience, devotion, and is the protector of all who practice the Dharma often depicted on a white elephant with six tusks which signify overcoming the attachment we carry to our six senses. When shown holding the wish fulfilling jewel or a lotus bud the esoteric representation suggests purity.

Fugen Bosatsu is sometimes seen as a correlation with Ganesha and Indra within the Hindu pantheon and is a central deity of the Flower Garland Sutra.

Fugen Bosatsu:

Also known as Samantabhadra we find that Fugen Bosatsu may be in charge of the role of truth from a neutral perspective. The Japanese believe Samantabhadra will be the final Buddha spreading enlightening wisdom. Of particular interest to women in medieval Japan Fugen Bosatsu during the thirteenth century appeared to a monk as a courtesan thereby revealing that Buddahood was a potential in all beings. Today Samantabhadra is little worshiped.

As a totem or spirit animal dragons ask us to view the world through the eyes of mystery and wonder while developing our fortitude, courage, and strength. We are often asked by their presence to master Earth, air, fire, and water. Symbolizing transformation at the emotional and physical level this can often be as simple as a job/career change or shifting your living space. Whatever the change is be forewarned this can be so drastic as to impact your core existence.

“To change, you must face the dragon of your appetites with another dragon: the life-energy of the soul.” – Rumi (Fire Dragon Maple Tree in Garden)

If you desire to reach your full potential you may be required to play a variety of roles including performing that which many others find intimidating and scary. Please be aware of your limits properly ensuring you do not exhaust your energy reserves in meeting the demands of others around you.

Visualization will become a huge tool for you to begin working with so begin to consider images that resonate well with your life goals for contemplation. Journaling your feelings, images, and creating a bond with your spirit guide including dragons is a great way to undertake the process of forming a solid relationship or bond with this totem or spirit animal.

Call upon the dragon when you desire to reconcile your past experiences with your present, when you need to create rapport with your family members, when you need to exude a great power within you, and when you wish to protect what you have built.

Dragon Magic:

In the spirit of the theme today I’ve pulled up a Draconic Chart to investigate Asteroid Drakonia (620). This minor planet orbits the Sun and was discovered October 26, 1906. The Greek Δράκων Drakon meaning dragon also refers to the Draco constellation. Ancient Greek δράκων traditionally relates to sight with a literal meaning of one who stares. A derivative δράκαινα Drakaina speaks to a dragoness or she-dragon.

Draconic Chart for Asteroid Drakonia

When we use the Draconic Chart to study astrology it’s actually quite useful and is always a standby I’ve referred to during my studies on/off. This is a manner with which to delve deeper into the psyche of an individual because it connects to our soul studying our human life, its formation, and its final rewards.

When we desire to deeply manifest and understand our life’s significance this is of assistance in attaining our higher self. The Draconic Chart finds its beginnings in the North Lunar Node at zero degrees or zero point energy of Aries.

Looking upon my chart we find Asteroiod Drakonia is in my 9th House of Aquarius at 3° semisextile Mercury, sextile Saturn and Chiron, trine Uranus, and square Pluto. The intellect prefers to be stimulated and one is often a quick learner preferring the internet for communication and education.

It is by surfing the world wide web that one picks up pieces of information without becoming easily bored. We adopt new technologies and make changes to daily routines or work methods easily. Opportunities for healing come through self healing which is often unconventional and wholistic.

We succeed in life by being an original rather than imitating that which has already been done therefore we favor unconventional approaches to life. We may have a conservative aspect to our persona, but we also like to experiment. We’re also agitated towards marginalization based upon gender, race, or socio-economic status.

This degree has a rather acute ability to be in tune with what is coming feeling the echoes of future events in the present. The chart holder can know when any course that is being followed needs to be changed. They have much insight into the patterns, routines, and the taken for granted programs that people fall into without being aware of their potentially destructive effects sensing when and how to help others wake up.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A vast ornate Hindu temple depicting hundreds of gods.” Since God is everything it can be said that God is both a singularity and a plurality.

This degree deeply senses that the Cosmos is a friendly place, a place that is here to help us, and that God is always willing to find when needed a new manifestation of him/herself to meet whatever needs may arise. The Universe is playful, generous, and infinitely resourceful. We also have it in ourselves to be these things. Work with guardian angel Hariel and daimon Eligor.

Daimon Eligor is a tie into the Seven of Wands, Venus, Thyme, and Leo. Working with Eligor is helpful if you seek a positive change in your personal life or career. When working with this daimon obstacles can be overcome by becoming self confident, focused, and hard working. This daimon helps you to strategize your life. Often working with Eligor helps you to uncover hidden secrets of the inner self.

“If you ignore the dragon, it will eat you. If you try to confront the dragon it will overpower you. If you ride the dragon, you will take advantage of its might and power.” – Chinese Proverb

This degree sits upon two stars within Capricornus known as Giedi Prima and Secunda. Kabbalists identify these fixed stars with the Hebrew letter Yod and the tarot trump of the Wheel of Fortune (a meditation may be found here). The environment one finds themselves in may be peculiar often indicating there may be problems with domestic affairs which occur.

A great crystal to work with for this degree is the Septarian also known as the Dragonstone focusing on messages of new ideas, beliefs, and ways which focus on radical values which shall be indispensable in the future. The affirmation reads as I seek new and inspirational thought patterns.

Unrelated to this specific degree, however, is the fact that the fixed star Regulus ruling Magha nakshatra which I was born into refers to the basilisk. If you’ve never read the esoteric meaning of Abraxas you might find that insightful as well.

The Greeks referred to this as a serpent or worm while the Romans chose Regulus to imply kingly or royal. This became the tales of Medusa later in mythology as it was seen as having the power to cause death when someone looked into their eyes.

We forget that there is the tale of the Seraphim or fiery serpents which again is giving way to the kundalini depicted as flying around the Throne of God/Goddess. Egyptian pharaohs wore headdresses with serpents in the form of cobras as regal power and this meaning transferred to modern day Mecca.

Kabbalistic gematria equates 620 to the Crown chakra as well. We see this best depicted from images in panels of the second shrine to the King Tutankhamun’s tomb where a spitting cobra depicts the electromagnetic energy ejected via a human’s Third Eye chakra. Edfu Texts repeatedly describe this as “one whose inner eye was opened.”

Symbolism carries the message further especially in our BIble by discussing the vulture which was also worn on Egypt’s Atef headdress. The vulture as an energetic scavenger senses the electric fields of animals even as it buries it’s head inside a carcass.

They naturally thermal soar on columns of heat ascending in the air therefore this represents kundalini transformed via our pineal gland which allows us to soar into Cosmic or Christ consciousness. This has been known as the electromagnetic fields also akin to the Goddess Maat with her wings spread which Christians know as the Ark of the Covenant.

This became the Shen Ring upon which a vulture stood as a symbol of heaven and Earth connected transferred to the 24th Greek letter Omega. Essentially spiritual practices are all co-opted and most Abrahamic faiths online prefer to enact psychological warfare over these esoteric concepts to instill fear in societies because behaving childishly and immaturely is considered humorous or fun to those who have an Emotional IQ I try to avoid.

It’s one of those reason I’ve remained happy my blog and online business are not viral. My time on Twitter taught me that I’d probably be annoyed by most influencers who misuse their knowledge, power, or authority because I was often to the point of wanting to “roast” some of them for being incapable of maturing or doing their shadow work.

I said this repeatedly via my business blog that most people I’ve met openly express they don’t want to do shadow work or self improvement. All of which usually is going to be a “trigger” to someone like me.

Have a superb Sunday everyone! Sending you lots of positivity! ✨

Self Examination Saturdays: Burst Into Bloom This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse May 2022

“The very best relationship has a gardener and a flower. The gardener nurtures and the flower blooms.”– Carole Radziwill (Various Flowers From Our Garden May 2022)

Let’s journey through this weekend’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse with some springtime folly using the underlined hyperlink text which leads to spellbound stories (just click on any one of them to be magically transported to mirth).

🌺🌛🌕🌜🌺

On the 15th we will have both a Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse. The fascinating fact of this is that for those in the Austin, TX area this eclipse will occur during 11:11 PM CST which is quite a significant number/portal. It is at this time that the Moon will be at maximum eclipse and closest to the center of the Earth’s shadow. I reside in Cedar Park, TX therefore this will be impacting my city as well.

The Full Moon occurs at 11:14 PM CST and is known as the Flower Moon signifying the growth of spring flowers in North America; ours are a wee bit slow. We do have a very nice blanket of cosmos in yellow and orange occurring out front in our garden with a very large patch of wildflowers that are edible and seed varieties for songbirds in the back of our garden. I can tell some will likely be sunflowers, but the others I’m still guessing at.

11:11 Portals:

We also had seed packs that stated they were echinacea, but they are definitely not echinacea. They are zinnias which are growing in the pots. Not the ideal location for where I’d want them per say, but then I expected an entirely different flower altogether. So I guess this is an instance of “surprise.” This Full Moon is very close to perigee making it a Supermoon closest to the Earth with an elliptical orbit.

The total lunar eclipse places the Moon opposite the side of the Earth from the Sun as the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow. This shadow is not completely dark so some of the Sun’s light refracts through the Earth’s atmosphere turning the Moon red hence the term Blood Moon (yes, there is also an equivalent counterpoint to the female cycle). The deeper the shadow the darker and more pronounced the red.

The Lunar Eclipse occurs in Scorpio at 25° which is my 8th House, however, for others this will be a different location (it could be your 1st, 6th, 9th, or any of the other 12 Houses) so it’s a good idea to look at where Scorpio is in your personal chart. The Full Moon occurs in the same location.

The aspects made to the Moon include a T-Square with Saturn, North Lunar Node, and the Sun as well as two Cradles with Midheaven/MC, North Lunar Node, Neptune, Mars, Pluto, Jupiter, Mars, and the Sun. It is worth mentioning I’ve previously covered this degree in relation to Asteroid Reiki.

The T-Square between the Moon and North Lunar Node creates an opposition to one’s life purpose with their Heart chakra. An example of this displays as one who has a life purpose of being a stay at home wife/mom, but feels pressured by their cultural group to have a career.

With Saturn we find amplified tensions between motherhood, habits, the subconscious, obligations, restrictions, and fears. The Sun is asking for a compromise to be made at this juncture. There are also conflicts with one’s energy/stamina, sense of self/purpose, and ego.

The Cradle aspect is an intensification of this where there are two potential outlets for creative problem solving or escapism. The polarity between Divine Masculine or Yang and Divine Feminine or Yin are also impacted. If there is no cooperative potential the underlying dilemma will turn into avoidance, sidesteps, and a struggle with maturation.

The reason we call this astrology aspect the Cradle is because in facing life’s challenges we are asked to develop emotionally, but some will be slower than others at this process.

Post Natal Lunar Eclipse Chart for Asteroid Blume

Today we will be investigating Asteroid Blume (18106) German for “flower” in honor of this Full Flower Moon via a Post Natal Lunar Eclipse Chart which compliments a previous blog post featuring a Post Natal Solar Eclipse Chart. The Post Natal Lunar Eclipse Chart indicates where one is more introverted, introspective, and uncomfortable in the limelight.

They will be less likely to self promote and more willing to work within the background. Asteroid Blume is placed within my 11th House of Virgo at 4° semisextile Sun, opposition Moon, and quintile Mars and Uranus. Our 11th House is what we envision and how this vision is distributed to others. It is where we seek friends we can bond with for a common cause to develop cutting edge and progressive ideas.

Asteroid Blume is in fact named for William Blume who worked with the development of Deep Impact and Epoxi comet missions. The energy of this asteroid will display as one who has more ideas than can realistically be implemented due to their logical reasoning skills being at odds with what they’re capable of doing. We’re big supporters of improving educational standards and promoting improved methods/standards of education for young children.

We struggle to reconcile our head with our heart and suffer disruption in our daily routines. There is an ability to make quick witted decisions while remaining assertive under pressure as well as being unashamedly self expressed. There is an extremely conducive environment we live in where we gravitate towards shocking styles of art, music, literature, acting, and politics.

Our outer appearance is how we manifest in the world at our most superficial level. This can either reflect to an extent what is within or it can cloud, mar, and hide it. The chart holder is intent on finding ways to clearly present themselves so that others may see who they really are. This is not easy as it may require a lot of work. At best though when the chart holder shines forth it encourages others to shine forth too.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A small piglet dressed in baby’s clothes.” It is difficult for the chart holder to hide who they are. Ultimately they don’t wish to do so anyway, but may often feel forced to travel incognito because of people being so addicted to what is average and so intent on hiding anything that is strange, original, or unique about themselves.

Humanity will be at their happiest and most fulfilled if they find the courage to throw off conservative appearances and reveal themselves completely to others. This will help them to see that their basic and primal instincts are at their roots healthy and when affirmed may become a vibrant expression of spirituality. Work with guardian angel Aladiah and daimon Buer.

Daimon Buer is related with the 2 of Cups, Mercury, Acacia, and Cancer. When we work with Buer we learn self initiation into herbalism, liberation from negative habits/behaviors, nature magic, and self transformation via positive thoughts. The framework of physics, geology, and natural sciences especially medicinal plants for healing will be encouraged.

The fixed star on this degree is Alpha Sextans in the Sextant of Uranae. The Sextant is a navigational tool which contains a sixty degree arc or sixth part of a circle used for measuring the altitudes of celestial bodies to determine latitude/longitude. The primary use being to measure the angle between a celestial object and the horizon.

Alpha Sextans is on the zero latitude line or zero declination of our celestial equator. Directly above Alpha Sextans is the fixed star Regulus which as I’ve been obsessively studying is the ruling star of Magha nakshatra I was born in on the Vedic astrology system with Ketu.

The word “sextant” derives from Latin and Greek to mean sixteen, sixty, senary, semester, siesta, and sistine as in the Sistine Chapel. This constellation is created with Urania the Muse of Astronomy in mind. As one of the Nine Muses (this calls to one of my astrology charts I feature with my online business) she is depicted pointing to a globe with a staff and deals with astronomical writings which map the stars, galaxies, and other celestial bodies.

The sextant was used by Johannes Hevelius to compile one of the first accurate star maps or is that Moon map. There is also a connection with the six pointed star which in Hinduism represents the lingam penetrating the yoni. This esoteric concept represents active and passive forces in nature as well as the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.

The sixth day of creation in the Bible is when God/Goddess created man as male and female in their image and after their likeness. There are correlations in Hinduism with the Sacral chakra. It is speculated that the Creation of Adam depicts an anatomical view of our human brain.

“I pointed out to you the stars (the Moon) and all you saw was the tip of my finger.” – Tanzania Proverb

Have a bemused Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse! The energy of this event is that of Beltane where nature celebrates lush green leaves, lighthearted butterflies, and determined bees. It’s all about fertility, healing, and flourishing. I’ll be working on some chores, getting my car inspected and my tags, and finishing reading the astrology reports I purchased from another online business with aspects to Black Holes and a special Flower Essences report as well as a few other misadventures along the way. 🌟

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: The High Priestess Meets the Spider Woman

The High Priestess from The Hermetic Tarot – The Princess of the Silver Star – Gimel (Camel) and Spider Woman Archetype

Let’s take a more nuanced journey today through the healing energies of the High Priestess and the Spider totem via our underlined hyperlink text.

🧙‍♀️🕷️❤️‍🩹

We’re graced today by the High Priestess and the Spider Woman archetype. The High Priestess is ruled by the Moon and via the Hermetic Tarot is known as The Priestess of the Silver Star displayed as adorned in pure Divine Feminine light of the lunar energies seated as the Eternal Virgin. The lunar energies veil the spirit of Truth. At her breast is a lyre, the law of Artemis the Huntress, and the path of Gimel which traverses Kether to Tiferet. Taken another way this is the path of mystical consciousness through transcendental consciousness.

We are encouraged to engage with our intuition and to feel the answer to our questions at this time in a manner which may not provide an easy to digest explanation. Dig deeper, take a step back, and acknowledge what you literally see happening in front of you at this time. What is actually there? What lies beneath? Is the answer obvious or is it subverted creating a heaviness for some or all parties involved at this time.

The High Priestess

The Spider Woman speaks to our need to weave a life, to create mandalas, and to create our universe. When stretched North-South and East-West our work begins by spinning threads which many regard as the symbol of our Matrix system or Maya in an illusory reality within the world of our senses.

The Hopi saw this archetype as an Earth Goddess and Spider Grandmother while the Ojibwe spoke to a help meet of collective humanity who inspired mothers to weave dreamcatchers for their loved ones to filter out negative energies.

The guidance at this time is to recover your creative impulses, defend yourself by setting adequate boundaries, remember it is not your role to solve the affairs of other’s, release any feelings of guilt, and get in touch with your inherent instinctual nature by honoring your bodily sensations.

Most importantly you’re invited to be spontaneous reconciling yourself with your desires and fears while encouraging yourself not to try and meet expectations that aren’t your responsibility. Your job is not to dress up to try and fit in; stop pretending and allow yourself to just be!

Spider Woman

For me I’m learning a lot more about somatic yoga personally as I have chronic pain after my foot injuries/surgery. This is a form of re-connection to the sensate body because I struggled sometimes with “groundedness.” What can help is to notice one’s current physical comfort. You can sit in a chair and notice your overall experience by moving your feet over the floor and connecting with it.

The next step is to feel your back connected with the bottom of the chair which supports you. Take a few moments to get comfortable with the chair supporting you and the floor stabilizing you. We often don’t take the time to actually connect this way with our environments.

Look around to notice something that feels resourceful such as trees outside the window, a piece of art on the wall, or a calming color on the floor or walls around you. This helps you ground by settling your entire nervous system.

Another beneficial practice is to recall a time within the last 24 hours when you felt most like your true self. Explore this event in detail noticing what happens in your body. For example, do you feel less anxious and more calm or serene? Then recall a time within the last 24 hours when you felt most like the person you would like to be.

Explore this event also in detail noticing what happens in your body. For example, do you feel tensed muscles or a change in heart beat, breathing, or body temperature? This helps you ground by returning you to your true north.

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Weaver

I’m briefly looking at asteroid Weaver today for a little more “spidey” insight. I’m doing this through a Solar Arc Direction or SAD chart. You’ll notice this asteroid was in my 9th House and has moved to my 10th House of Leo therefore the stories I wish to tell will encompass a combination of philosophy, spirituality, and greater wisdom through the expansive lens of Jupiter.

You will find me exploring culture, language, and social structures in my free time. This is now moving into the house of vocation where I take cognizant strides towards dealing with that which I adore or care for. 10th House is meant to be not an odd run of the mill job that just pays the bills, but our dream job where we desire accomplishment and advancement.

It is the 6th House which governs the common 9-5 jobs being ruled by Virgo while the 10th House is ruled by Saturn. This placement creates fundamental conditions where we can develop a steady foundation to venture forward upon. It is the placement of becoming an expert in your field while seeking to make a positive impact on others.

Asteroid Weaver is at Leo 10° with Mars sextile Moon, quintile Saturn, and semisquare Chiron. We’re the kind of people who desire balance and harmony in our relationships and have strong wills. Our creative spark makes us enthusiastic about life desiring happiness and success in life.

Our talents lie in sorting, categorizing, and creating order in our lives often having a strong sense of meeting deadlines. We struggle to act spontaneously as we are more responsible and can appear unemotional from time to time. Our sense of self is challenged by our ego structure and we’re often at odds with it.

We feel an unfathomable degree of loneliness. This aspect to Saturn is what is often a metaphoric Sun/Son on the cross image symbolizing a psychological aspect of the Sun Chiron semisquare. We generally cut ourselves off from the material world in order to attain to higher pleasure in the spiritual world.

The chart holder taps into worlds and realities that are beyond the scope of usual human perception. What they gain from this can be used to enrich the knowledge and understanding of people if they are open to their insights. The problem is they may not believe the chart holder because they aren’t perceiving what they’re perceiving.

The way to resolve this dilemma is to express your ideas in a way that is not so forthright through a form that is more acceptable to others. Another option is to use your insights and ideas to further yourself without being concerned about what others believe or won’t take in.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man putting olive oil all over his body.” This degree is about making the connections between self and the outside world smoother so it can move through the world with greater ease minimizing the negative reactions which might come towards themselves from other people.

They have a strong need to be independent and true to self, but to do so in a non-abrasive way in the hopes that their special gifts will be accepted as much as possible. They have an ability to slip out of situations which are unnecessarily limiting or which don’t allow them to contribute what they uniquely have to offer. Slipping and sliding through the world makes life easier minimizing the need for compromise.

Work with guardian angel Yeialel and daimon Ipos.

Daimon Ipos will refer us to the Five of Cups, Jupiter, Yarrow, and Scorpio. Working with Ipos helps one become more decisive and courageous. If there is negativity attached to your aura it will be removed while you learn how to engage in using your subtle bodies’ natural defenses against psychic or emotional attack. This daimon assists with confidence, eloquence, self development, and helps you make wiser decisions.

Work with Cavansite spreading a message of appreciation towards natural and Divine cycles while focusing on sharing with friends and family the ideals of simplicity, beauty, love, and nature in its purest form. Affirm your beliefs in timelessness each day.

I also should note that I mistakenly forgot to remove my keys from my apron for my part time cosmetology job. Needless to say the Universe/Cosmos key and my key for our other franchise store got a “cleansing/wash” with the dirty laundry.  That was not intentional; I honestly forgot I needed to pull my keys out of my apron first then turn on the machine.

Have a thought provoking Thursday! Sending you good vibes! 👋🏻💓

Teach Me Tuesdays: The Taroscope and the Astrology of Asteroid Lust

A snail walks into a bank to make a deposit. Then a turtle comes in and robs the bank. Afterward, the police are interviewing the snail and ask him to recount what had happened. The snail says, “I don’t know, it all happened so fast.”

I’m loading this with a lot of underlined hyperlink text because I want my regular and new blog readers to have choices/options for interpretations instead of a one size fits all cookie cutter approach to what I’m investigating today! So give your mouse a workout and get to “surfing” cyberspace because as they say everything which is active lives longer than that which stagnates!

🏄‍♀️💻🖱️🕵️‍♀️

I wanted to do this after reading about the Great Attractor because I immediately had an epiphany moment of what I wanted to hone in on for myself to gain clarity by combining two esoteric theories of tarot and astrology. I’ve taken the time and liberty to also read Part 1 which for me personally was a bit of a “review” of topics I was already quite familiar with and Part 3. I guess my blog posts are a buildup of consciousness all leading in one direction.

The taroscope takes your essential archetypal trump card determined via your birthdate and combines this with your personality card which is a court card corresponding to your zodiac sign and your destiny card which is the number card representative of your zodiac decan in which you were born. For me personally this will look like the following:

Essential Archetype as Hierophant

Personality Card as Prince of Wands

Destiny Card as Five of Wands

Being that my birthdate is the 26th of July and this always reduces to a tarot birth card of Strength I thought today would be the ideal day to likewise investigate via a Vedic Age Harmonic Chart where the asteroid Lust (4386) was in my present condition. The reason being that the Thoth deck displays Strength as Lust or one’s desire nature as a sense of craving which I imagine it would benefit me to know what that is in an effort to gain more clarity

““Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be filled with joy.”” – Unknown

One of the most important things we desperately need to grasp in the esoteric schools of thought is that we have two fundamental drives propelling us through life. Eros (libido) and Thanatos (aggression) which fluctuate between our id, ego, and supergo or conscious/unconscious mind.

Eros as a Greek God of love came to represent our instinct to life portrayed as nice, compassionate, loving, and full of aliveness. Thanatos as a Greek God of death came to represent our instinct to destruction portrayed as manifest anger, violence, and hostility.

Therefore are your decisions driven by pleasure, sexuality, love, happiness, procreation, and the need to get along with others or homicide, suicide, self harm, and risky behavior patterns. Lust and desire are the pleasure principle therefore they fall under Eros.

Most people only attach an extremely negative view of this asteroid. It’s completely thrust under the hashtag of the “Metoo” movement and the male gaze phenomena. I guess the women in the world have yet to recognize and integrate the shadow of the Femme Fatal archetype because they are stuck in a very perpetual victim consciousness still.

This is not me trying to diminish their experiences rather it’s the fact that women also have to own what about them is allowing them to become the archetype of a victim. In my estimation it takes two partners to tango! Both the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine need to start owning their guano! The truth is we allow ourselves to be victims sometimes out of ignorance and sometimes not.

Asteroid Lust orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. It is pronounced “loost,” and is said to fall under the Three of Cups as a representation of the Three Graces of faith, hope, and charity thereby meaning it symbolizes passion, joy of any kind (not just sexual), and can be a symbol of a zest for life in general.

In this chart we will find asteroid Lust in my 12th House of Pisces at 9° trine Jupiter and Chiron as well as semisquare Uranus with my True Lunar Node. I actually like this degree symbol for what it represents, but one has to treat their companion well who is helping them win any race!

Our 12th House deals with deprivation, loss, isolation, hospitals, prisons, hidden enemies, the fear of death/illness, self undoing, and our unconscious/subconscious. This involves collective realms of life from groups, neighborhoods, organizations, states, and the world in general. 12th House is Neptune ruled.

Age Harmonic Chart for Asteroid Lust

When Pisces inhabits the 12th House we come across as assertive and must develop the capability to show compassion and sensitivity while listening to what our gut/intuition tells us. We understand ourselves as well as others quie well, but need to guard against becoming too permissive.

We will struggle to ignore the poor, sick, and needy putting a focus on social justice, human rights activism, and we worry about the plight of refugees or innocent victims of war. We become whole when we make room in our lives to explore the ethereal, fantastical, and imaginary. We will appear to have a whacky sense of humor and can seem impractical when we follow our whims.

This is the placement for those obsessed with transition especially saying goodbye to that which is not for our greatest good. When our intuition tells us we feel liberated it is God/Goddess giving us a big hug and green light to go ahead. The checklist we follow is to ask for signs, ask for help/support, protect our home with unconditional love/security, take care of sick people, direct a job/career our way, solve financial problems, and work towards overall inner peace so that we flow.

A lack of judgement is here with an acceptance of the needs of others no matter what they may be. Also included is a lack of fear of what is unknown based on the belief that the universe is an inherently safe place. Where one might expect discord or conflict this degree knows that being deeply accepting can create an environment of harmony and peace in which all of life can partake.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Dusk. A vampire awakens.” Until we can awaken those areas of ourselves that need healing we exist in a state of suspension. This degree senses how to turn the consciousness away from the outer objective world allowing the unredeemed energies of the subconscious to come forth.

It is acutely sensitive to desires and able to contact them without judgment, rationalization, fear, or anything else that might distort them and make them seem other than what they are. The fact is that what we run away from we give power to whereas what we are willing to completely own and accept eventually loses its negative charge and becomes integrated into our being.

When the shadow is ready to move on it will. Work with guardian angel Hahasiah and daimon Balam.

Daimon Balam directs us to the Seven of Wands, Sun, Leo, and Vetiver. If you’re working with Balam you probably specialize in the tarot, palm reading, working with crystals, healing spells, astral travel, solar magic, and tree spirits. This daimon is great for working with the higher self, shadow, and spirit/totem animals.

There is no fixed star on this degree to cover. I did, however, go look at the Kozminsky description for this degree as a comparative. We should remember that Pisces was my South Node with Virgo as my North Node on the Western zodiac system!

9° Pisces: Venus and Cupid metamorphosed as two fishes swimming from a giant who stands on a rock.

Denotes one of a sensitive disposition and pure mind who understands intuitively the true meaning of love as symbolized in the planet Venus; sublime and in her dignity. His/her enemy is lust which threatens to cling to him/her and by craft to hold the throne of his/her soul in the guise of love. But the native will know vice as a destroying angel only and his/her knowledge will protect him/her and set him/her free. It is a symbol of Transmutation.

Magic Beans!
Those are purple not black beans!

Today I spent my day quite productive including rescuing a black swallowtail butterfly who managed to get caught in our Agribon covering our lettuce in the garden. I had to coax it out with both of my hands as he/she refused to crawl upon my arm and let me assist to freedom.

Thankfully the little guy/gal flew out, but not before flying up against my right ear and fluttering his/her wings against me before flying away. I guess that was a butterfly kiss. I have no clue, but their wings are quite soft. All I do know is that the butterfly was in panic mode trying to get out of the Agribon therefore he/she could not see that I had pinned the netting up leaving plenty of free space to escape.

This teaches us about what happens when we become fearful as we lose our bearings and think irrationally. The butterfly kept flying and crawling along the top of the Agribon ignoring all the openings to leave in an anxious moment of distress.

I also spent a large amount of time hunched over and digging through some rather itchy leaves and stems clipping three full bowls of green, yellow, and purple beans two months into our gardening which will be part of our dinner tonight! I’m still waiting on the flowers. We do have some orange cosmos now that go with the yellow out front, but they’ve been slow to get budding.

The other random unidentified flying insect in the Agribon was definitely not impressed with the butterfly as it was totally chill sitting until it got slapped multiple times by huge black butterfly wings and went running the other direction having had it’s calm disturbed. You know me and my garden updates; I’m always proud of my plant rearing successes cause I’m a nerdy plant mother! Have a trendsetting Tuesday and much love! 🦋⛑️

PS: The purple beans turn dark green when they are cooked! Kind of a bummer! I wanted purple beans on my plate. Also no blog post tomorrow. I’m really struggling some days to keep up with my many hats I’m wearing. I did treat myself this week though with cashew ice cream in peanut butter brownie flavor and a few other little rewards! 🍨

Manifestation Mondays: Astrocourier and Skywalker

He who cannot dance puts the blame on the floor.” – Hindu Proverb

I would like for you to take an otherworldly exploration with me today by clicking on the underlined hyperlink text which will illustrate very well what I want to show/teach you. Yes, this includes the links to Abell 3627 and the Great Attractor in the image description below!

💫🪐☄️

I’m always digging into the asteroids because there is always something fascinating about them even when I plop them randomly or haphazardly into an astrology chart. There is no specific interpretation for either of these asteroids. My theory was to break these two words down and then let my blog readers consider what they might believe these asteroids could speak to.

Astro:

  • (astronomy, astrology) celestial body, heavenly body
  • fixed star, planet, the Sun, constellation, or comet
  • (figuratively) a person exceptionally talented or famous in a specific field

Courier:

  • a person who looks after and guides tourists
  • a person who delivers messages
  • a company that delivers/transports messages
  • a runner

Sky:

  • the atmosphere above a given point where the Sun, Moon, stars, and clouds are seen from Earth

Walker:

  • one who walks, traveler, and journeyer
  • a pedestrian

I’ve seen a few theories online about the asteroid Astrocourier (29080) with reference to space architecture and microwave imaging radiometers that have been used in scanning for background radiation gaps appearing in areas of multiverse collisions which would act possibly as a link to the “many worlds hypothesis.” Other theories not related to quantum physics include a person who has come from the stars to deliver a message or any person who delivers a message about space and astronomy.

Asteroid Skywalker (274020) is specifically named for the fictional characters in the Star Wars franchise. This asteroid circles the Sun every 5 1/2 years between Mars and Jupiter. I’m more of a Star Trek fan personally, but I’m not seeing many asteroids that fit the theme. I’ll probably have to make more effort to actually try locating one at a later date/time. I believe the closest I’ve seen is asteroid Enterprise (9777) which I could perhaps attempt to make it work, but I have not researched much even with the discovery of that particular asteroid.

The “many worlds hypothesis” takes root in quantum physics at the level of atoms and subatomic particles through the behavior of light and matter. We can think back to the 1920s theories of a cat that was both alive and dead at the same time, but even MIT says physicists and ordinary mortals have no common sense explanation for what is “going on.” Interpretations exist through equations yet MIT says the multiple universe ideology is a colorful hypothesis that might appear crazy without being necessarily wrong.

Schrödinger’s cat was seen as philosophical and motivated by a desire to get rid of any idea of the “collapse of the wave function.” Bohr wanted to see the outcome of this experiment where there was only one outcome not an admixture of dead and live cat; superposition of states.

Then terminology updated to explain that two parallel universes or worlds exist in which one cat is alive and in the opposite the cat dies. Open the box in one universe to find a live cat and vice versa. Therefore there is no collapse of the wave function rather it’s a determination of fate based upon different possibilities or alternatives happening simultaneously.

Somewhere along all of this we came to quantum choices muddying the waters by “splitting” into different versions of itself. This became the theory that an amoeba who splits into two daughter cells if they had brains each daughter cell would remember an identical history up to the point of “splitting” to then generate its own personal memories. I’m honestly thinking this sounds far more psychological in theory also.

But MIT took this further through the quantum computers “switching” between superposition states through electrical circuits which are either on/off through the corresponding zeros and ones of binary code being manipulated. So we begin to grasp the spinning up or down of the atoms/electrons.

Every “switch” is a qbit or cubit. Some state that superposition embraces “all possibilities.” Cosmologists have occasionally stated the multiverse is a superposition of universes. Someone can get back to me on all of that later…

As I’ve said previously post foot fracture I was put on some pain medications that altered my neurotransmitters in my nervous system so I found myself only capable of reading quantum physics, astrology, tarot, and having a thorough focus on Kabbalah or various spiritual practices.

Anything else put in front of me where the words moved on the pages or I was in/out of consciousness either blacking out as in passing out for unknown lengths of time or sleeping 14 hour days. Two months of that, and then developing the side effect of suicidal ideation was more than enough to make me try quitting them cold turkey and succeeding with a very minor taper off due to some unpleasant withdrawals. Topics I don’t want to put here as they’re not exactly the “high” points of my life.

And “NO” I was not trying to actually perform any experiment. In fact, once I researched, learned that the medications my pain clinic prescribed were contraindicated, and began to actually advocate for my well being properly I realized that I no longer “trust” most medical professionals anymore as difficult as that is for those in the industry to now have to be told.

I understand humans make mistakes, but frankly when you’re playing God with my life against my authority we’re going to have some serious irreconcilable differences! The kind where I might become rather unattractive as a person and have some problems with my Emotional IQ slipping a little lower than normal. Being a Western zodiac Leo we don’t want to go into the Schrödinger’s cat theory because that’s going to get really “wyrd.”

“Don’t kill my vibe.” – Unknown

But then we all must remember my studies about Magha nakshatra born people with Regulus, Ketu, and the Leo to Virgo transition.

Barbara Pijan always fascinated me with her rundown of Magha lunar mansion in terms of it’s description. Some of which reminds me inherently of Puella Magi Madoka Magica in its description of soul gems during the contract process. You see the soul gems hold the place of a magical girl’s soul as a source of their powers/battle gear.

It’s explained that the human body also metaphysically described as our temple is a container possessed by a soul which is extracted to form the soul gem. If the soul gem is moved outside of a 100 m range the magical girl’s body goes inert until her soul gem is returned to resuscitate her. Strange theories; right?!

The 1-27th portion called Agha, Magha, Makha, and Kosthagara is said to facilitate a variety of identity change movement of the soul away from the body.

This quick movement during the change of spatial relationship between the body and the perceiving apparatus called soul (seeker/listener) creates a brightness that is likened to a burning sacred fire.

Trance heat can be understood as metaphorically similar to the experience of atmospheric re-entry that is now understood from the space traffic of various high powered airborne vehicles coming and going through the Earth’s electrical atmosphere.

They do get hot from the abrasive particulate friction and sometimes burn up completely if not properly shielded. It looks like they are just moving through the air, but indeed many fields of particulate structure are being penetrated and navigated in order to change levels.

Quick disassembly of the particle structure of the protective aura which surrounds the flesh body and again quick reassembly upon exiting the trance state to return to normal life perceptions are the special blessing granted to Magha.

In the old books Magha is likened to a type of death and indeed a trance-state may imitate a very brief and voluntarily entered coma. Its special characteristic is heat generated by the speed of the change in the field of consciousness.

When Magha matches the radical lagna the human incarnation tends to be rather unusual. Magha folk are more aware than most of the light quantum which form the basis of the particulate nature of reality.

Experts in the nature of light they are often what is termed a “wanderer” (volunteer helper) who hails from the fifth density of awareness. The specialty of fifth density consciousness is creative light.

Incarnating into Malkuth (terra/Earth) via their transfer station in Regulus the Magha folk have typically come to help raise philosophical awareness.

Their perspective is emotionally detached (Ketu) in their highly philosophical and witnessing personality. Yet Magha is often surrounded by theatrical attention getting scenarios due to the radiance of their inner light.

If other features of the nativity show a high level of public visibility Magha (the Great Ones) may be hailed as royalty or celebrity. However, the ego flattery that may be generated by their charismatic glitter is of little interest to Magha whose work here is focused on assisting the evolution of human life by demonstrating and revealing the light of consciousness.

Due to their Ketu vision which dissolves forms exposing the formless swirling light energies behind the curtain of form Magha are a class of magicians who can transform the public imagination.

They rarely marry and normally exhibit no desire to bear children. They prefet to meditate and contemplate. Yet during the recent age there were Magha women who under cultural pressure bore a small number of offspring who were then tended by devoted helpers.

Age Harmonic Chart for Asteroid Astrocourier and Asteroid Skywalker

Anywho, let’s chart these two asteroids today to see what they want to share with us before I ramble and share more “Twilight Zone/Outer Limits” with you. I’m going back to a Vedic Age Harmonic Chart because we want to see the current energies defining my life at present not the snapshot of when I was born which is what a natal chart really does.

The natal chart is entirely a snapshot of our past essentially.

There is so much that I don’t believe some astrologers properly disclose and discuss with their clients. This is why I began to self teach myself as I was fed up also with customary cold readings. It’s also why when anyone purchases a reading from me it can take as my Terms of Service & FAQ state two days to compose a decent report.

For all my complaints I’ve been glad my online business is not generating much “noise” because between my mom’s potential foot surgery and my part time cosmetology job I’m swamped. We’re waiting for her insurance to approve her to even receive the MRI on her foot so instead she is in a boot on leave of absence stuck in the house. I now realize I’m glad I was uninsured.

I was able to bypass and get all of my health needs taken care of by being my own health advocate without a system that is propelling me some days into the realms of anti-establishment. I was even asked once if I was an anarchist. I don’t, however, fully think I identify as that. I do prefer to act from a place of sovereignty or self reliance though not really enjoying my other options.

This is probably the most energetic chart I’ve seen. I’m looking at stelliums in the 4th and 9th Houses where these two asteroids are placed. The 4th House is all about the desired environment we wish to live within and the place we would like to call home. It’s what we create as an adult sitting upon a very spiritual axis meant to imply that this will be the foundation upon which we build.

Cancer and the Moon rule the 4th House. We are foodies who can be psychic with dreams about our past lives invading our consciousness. We desire to show off what we’ve acquired from our careers. The connection to Cancer and the Moon cause dramatic ties to our mothers to influence our emotional and home life.

The 9th House is where we broaden our view of the world/universe taking in the existential meaning of why we are here, what is our purpose, what is truth, and so forth. Being ruled by Sagittarius and Jupiter the focus of this placement is on enlightenment, adventure, and philosophical wisdom.

This placement enjoys doing research and traveling. Truthfully the desire is to experience life first hand by learning about ourselves. We’re normally adaptable, but we’re also severely agitated if anything encroaches upon our views regarding the need for freedom.

Astrocourier is in the 4th House of Cancer at 11° semisquare the Moon and opposition Jupiter and Chiron. Skywalker is in the 9th House of Sagittarius at 12° quincux Chiron. Our self esteem and ability to exploit potentials causes us unease. If we allow self doubt and unproductive questioning to be the order of the day it will reduce our ability to achieve in life.

This placement causes emotional instability due to conflicts/friction with one’s parents either from their childhood or during their adulthood. This placement demands that we learn to better evaluate people’s character even within our family to ensure their intentions are not misguided or lacking in perception with regards to how they view or treat us.

As we work through our emotions we develop skills for counseling not just in psychological theory or realms, but through being there in general for others as we develop an ability to see the point of view of those outside of ourselves. We begin to learn what unsettles us about our current situation whereby we go within to heal and seek answers. We start to rely on instinctive and mystical wisdom as well as archetypal energies to integrate a belief system or ideological approach to life.

The chart holder sometimes experiences the anxiety of feeling that something is missing or that there is something they need to be doing or searching for. They’re tuned in to what is missing and where they feel most inadequate. It’s important that they learn to see this as good as well as capable of furthering their own evolution rather than carrying it as a burden. They will find their treasure. Have patience and know that it is already yours.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Monstrosities in glass jars in a side show.” This degree tunes in to the anomalies, quirks, and unusual aspects of existence. Through exploring abnormalities it comes to know itself and comes to better understand the human standards that have judged certain things as abnormal.

It looks beyond human bias to try to comprehend the deeper meaning and purpose of existence. This is the hidden treasure waiting to be found. Work with guardian angel Reiyel and daimon Astaroth.

Daimon Astaroth is tied to the Three of Pentacles, Venus, Bay Laurel, and Capricorn. This is another touchy one because it’s no denying the name is probably a derivative of Ashtoreth or even Asherah, but then as I’ve said I did really love Purim.

Asherah was often associated with carved trees thus her worship often took place in forested areas under trees or with an Asherah pole. Names can derive via Ashtoreth or Astarte respectively with reference to the Moon goddess.

If you’re working with Astaroth you’ll likely gain balanced articulation and representation of your true self. Other areas of assistance come through guidance in the human affairs of friendship, prosperity, magic, divination, astral time travel, and empowering thoughtforms which heal one of anything which has been ailing them.

Additionally the chart holder knows that isolation and distance are illusions. We are only as separate from others or from ourselves as we believe we are. It is our belief in our separateness that creates walls between ourselves and the rest of life. When this belief is let go of the walls disappear and we find ourselves in communion with the whole world.

This degree has the ability to have a big impact on many people. That is the significance of its writing being in the sky where so many can see it. The best you can do here is to keep your words positive so that their positive effect will return to you.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Icicles melting.” The icicles are frozen water signifying the emotions. Here as they lose themselves they shorten and as they do so they move closer to heaven. The water wanted to fall to the ground, but the freezing temperature stopped it.

It is your own loving warmth that helps both yourself and others to let go of stuck feelings so that gravity may take them to Earth to nourish life. Their sharpness can be melted away and allowed to flow again. At your purest you bring into the world a sense of Spring wherever you go. Ego dissolves in the light. Work with guaridan angel Menadel and daimon Stolas.

Daimon Stolas is tied to the Ten of Cups, Jupiter, Celery Seed, and Pisces. If you’re working with Stolas you will learn psychic protection and initiation through the Moon. You will also develop improved mental clarity with a practical mindset towards history, biology, astrology, astronomy, and geology. Stolas has much knowledge with reference to the cosmos and natural sciences of herbs and precious stones to impart to those who desire the knowledge or gnosis.

Sign Spotlight Sundays: We Interrupt This Broadcast To Look At Mother’s Day via Archetypes, A Garden, & Astrology

“Being brave doesn’t mean you aren’t scared. Being brave means you are scared, really scared, badly scared, and you do the right thing anyway.” – Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Here we go again for another journey into the world of randomness and zany because it seems to be what I do best! That includes the annoying mention of underlined hyperlink text actually leads to “more elaboration” of the general story I’m trying to narrate today!

🙈🙉🙊

Because today is a seemingly “different” Sunday I’m interrupting my blog posts on the Asian zodiac signs to instead update you on the garden as well as to look at an astrology position with a focus on the Mother as an entire archetype.

We need to go about this by understanding what forms the “Mother” may show herself as because she embodies light, darkness, and something in-between. Therefore I would like for you to compare the Great Mother with the Dark Mother to round this out. You see the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine live in all of us, and we’re very much likely to also project the energies outwardly rather than owning them inwardly.

I also was given Coraline by my mother as a DVD thereby seeing the Neil Gaiman conceptualization of this motif. And I’ve definitely glimpsed both of these in my own life which I’m still struggling with because I don’t really know that I want to embody the archetype in the way that some other women have as it is not appealing to me in any shape or form.

I do believe you’ll see how I’ve also enmeshed with concepts that combine/merge the white and black mixing them into a sort of gray space. Some of which looks vaguely familiar!

Ah, but if we look at the Duir/Daleth and “door” concept even with the oak tree bed I inherited one has to wonder about this “other” mother that we may meet lurking in our individual or collective consciousness. This just reminds me of a webiste I saw years ago that told the Kabbalah and Tao of Pooh which fascinated me as I was nicknamed “Pooh Bear” growing up which then became Pookie (a variation of Pooky). Did anyone else see this episode?!

I have a purple 3D printed version of the name “Pookie” which sits in my bedroom on my Ikea wall mounted book case my step father made for me. I guess someone has to embody all of this “stuff.” I have been trying to figure out “why!” I’ll admit I loved Coraline when I first watched it! I’ve not watched it in a long time though.

The Divine Feminine has many aspects that reach far beyond a personal mother, grandmother, step mother, and mother-in-law. I notice most women and men have limited her embodiment by also ignoring her as nurse, governess, or remote ancestress. This is a category of the Goddess most often only shown today in many Abrahamic faiths as the Mother of God, Virgo the Virgin, or Sophia.

Demonized are many other constructs by these faiths such as Demeter, Kore, Cybele/Attis, and so forth. The archetype in it’s entirety can arouse devotion, feelings of awe, or a figurative sense goal of longing for redemption as told via the concepts of the Garden of Eden/Paradise and the Kingdom of God/Heavenly Jerusalem.

These all overlook the correspondences in complexity which include the unity of heaven with Earth, the woods, the sea or any still waters, matter, the underworld, the Moon, fertility, fruitfulness, the ploughed field, and the cornucopia. Many of these are also meant to symbolize various vessels such as rocks, caves, trees, deep wells, the rose, lily, and lotus, or a magical circle/mandala.

We find this archetype in ovens, cooking vessels, and the more literal view of the womb, uterus, and yoni. She has been given to us as the sacred cow and hare/rabbit. It is here that we encounter maternal solicitude, sympathetic magic, spiritual exaltation transcending reason, helpful impulses, and all that is cherishing/sustaining to foster growth.

When we see her as the witch, dragon, serpent, or through the lens of Lilith we encounter the Devouring Mother. This comes to us as the correspondences of death, nightmares, and the grave or sarcophagus. From this vantage one confronts anything secret, hidden, the abyss, seduction, poisons, and that which feels terrifying or inescapable such as fate/destiny.

In India we have a far better and more workable way to cope with her through the paradox of Kali where prakrti known as matter is assigned three gunas through sattva, rajas, and tamas.

Their culture takes philosophical myth to display Prakrti dancing before Purusha in order to remind him of discriminating knowledge which does not belong to the Mother archetype rather it belongs to the anima which in men appears at first mingled within the Mother as an image. The way to wholeness and healing is to stop denying the archetype within and to dissolve the projections which we cast outside of self.

I see projection in my own life, but I see it directed upon me, and I’ve learned that those who do so are unconscious and completely choosing to remain unaware of their disowned selves. Many of them don’t wish for wholeness because they explained to me they don’t want to work on achieving it. In my opinion this is quite harmful to self/other and shows an immaturity in humanity at large.

From my vantage as I tried to explain to some earlier today I began working through Kabbalah, tarot, and astrology before I achieved Reiki Master level. This included the wealth altar transitioning from the Empress’ energy to the Star’s energy as well as it’s many other symbolic correspondences.

You’ll see that I have preferred not to marry or bear children rather I’ve often tested more as an ecstatic and feel better as embodying this from the realms of gardening or through the creation of self employment even when I held my aesthetic’s business.

With this I’ve spent an ample amount of time also working to grasp my Magha lunar mansion as it transitioned Regulus Leo to Virgo albeit many may not agree with such unorthodox or liberal theories. I did, however, recently color the Lovers tarot card from a deck I own which was also placed upon the wealth altar.

The truth is there is no wrong or right way to embody the archetypes per say, but I think it vital we actually work to own our “mess” because I’m not sure how best to describe it rather than displacing our feelings or misinterpretations on another person, animal, or object.

I’ll admit though most of humanity may be more comfortable with disowning because their ego has these inborn defense mechanisms which may be difficult to accept. I know I don’t have anything perfected nor am I trying to. I’m here to grow and learn!

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Jerusalem

I’m going to split this up today given that I don’t want this to be a Chrstianized or Judaic or even Islamic focused entry only as there is an actual asteroid Jerusalem (63163) which I’ve charted in the Solar Arc Direction or SAD chart at my natal 7th House with Chiron having moved two full houses away to the 9th House of Cancer at 3°.

We can also investigate the Arabic Part/Lot for Mother using the formula Ascendant plus Moon minus Venus. For me this placement is found within just barely the Jupiter degree of my 3rd House of Sagittarius at 0°; that zero point energy shows up so often for me.

These charts are the hardest for me to correctly read the houses on for some reason. This is something that would be fun for anyone to do for themselves via Astro.com’s extended charts or through Astroseek.

Mother Arabic Part/Lot

Let’s make a small note that asteroid Jerusalem is quintile the Sun, sextile Venus, and biquintile Pluto. At the 7th House this represented one to one relationships which can include marriage, but is really any personal or business partnership that involves some form of a commitment on the part of both parties involved. 9th House though seeks to disclose our life philosophies, our journeys away from home, and can impact our communication such as via writing/publishing.

Through the lens of the Moon often equated with maiden, mother, and crone we find that I am comfortable in foreign places knowing how to adapt to various cultures. I happen to prefer my creative approaches to life to be the kind where I see beauty and wonder in that which others overlook or take for granted. My self expression while stylish may aim more at being unique.

We enjoy the perspective of a storyteller immersing ourselves in reading about the life stories of others. We blend interests and aesthetics by letting the outer world influence. One of our favorite past times can be the enjoyment of movies, books, poems, and other works aimed at treating issues of death, jealousy, or the psychological depths and the complexities of what it means to be human.

As the chart holder I have a strong connection to the past where I either delve into it or let it go. When I allow its unresolved energies to haunt me I will be continually weighed down. Rather I need to continually look at the past in a new way that goes beyond my preconceptions of it. Doing this I will learn much and be able to help others through sharing what I have learned.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A set of surgical instruments.” The message here is “cut it out.” What needs to be cut out are the burdens, baggage, and attachments that one has grown beyond. Accessing memories requires that they be either embraced or let go of.

This degree is about becoming more aware of what we don’t need, overcoming whatever we are ready to let go of, and finding an effective way to do this that overcomes the problem once and for all. Work with guardian angel Nelchael and daimon Marax.

Daimon Marax is connected with the Four of Swords, Mars, Elder, and Libra. You will know when you’re working with Marax as this will help you succeed at learning astronomy, astrology, and herbalism. I’ve occasionally seen connections to the goddess Maat.

The fixed star of this degree is Propus in the right foot of Castor in Gemini. This fixed star embodies companionship due to the mythology surrounding the Gemini constellation. Greek and Babylonian mythology indicates an epic where a princess promises her beloved eternal love and companionship under a watchful and approving gaze. The energy of this fixed star is generally of Mercury and Venus offering a courteous, affable, orderly, and artistic demeanor.

Confusion is found in this fixed star as to if it is Castor’s foot or the twin’s shoulders coming together to represent two heads being better than one. It can be implied that associative thinking is found through the energy of Propus which is vital to becoming a good astrologer who reads a horoscope well. Some combine this with the Saturnine energy of fixed star Wasat to breakdown the negative qualities of our unconscious fears. This is the placement of those who are modernists.

We are two months into the garden adventure. We have beans! They’re small right now, but we’re making progress in the vegetable kingdom!
This includes the purple beans which are a very beautiful shade. What I’m learning is that I won’t be having an Easter egg hunt. This is going to be a green, yellow, and purple bean hunt as they’re buried in ginormous leaves!
We have the first nasturtiums growing in our wildflowers. A very bright orange color which may not be as vibrant via the photos as seen in person.
Yes, I know more beans, but I’m so happy to be succeeding at growing food!
Lettuce galore! Lots of salads or lettuce wraps.
The first cosmos flower of the season. I can see there will be many more. Also a very small marigold. Our marigolds are not happy with the heat this year. I believe I will be losing some of them this year sadly.
Basil, carrot tops, and a blanket of cosmos flowers soon to erupt. We lost our three level tier garden bed out front. Some of the basil was put in a yellow plastic basket and also in a pot as an emergency transplant.
Roma tomatoes! They’re “trying,” but I need to fertilize them again.
Greenery of the wildflowers which have taken on a life of their own. Also the potatoes which have still not flowered so I’m patiently waiting till harvest.

Backtracking to the Arabic Part/Lot of Mother we learn that our 3rd House helps us to learn and communicate especially during early education, but goes further into showing how we relate to our siblings as well as what kind of environment we’re naturally attracted to.

This is the placement for those individuals who require mental stimulation, love conversation with others, and who take in facts easily. While open to new ideas and capable of understanding different modes of thought we are flighty more akin to a social butterfly flitting around.

As the chart holder I have a genius for connecting everything while weaving the various parts of life together into a whole that is unlimited because life knows no end. The impulse to forward movement is relentless, and I always desire to go further sometimes without even being sure of what the goal is.

This may wear out those who yearn for a stopping place and frustrate those who seek closure, but the discoveries made by the restlessness found here can be priceless.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Clouds overhead seen in a reflecting pool.” Creating a feeling of great depth reflects a great height and all of the clouds are filled with passing nebulousness. This is an extremely imaginative degree which allows anything possible to be envisioned. It is the antidote to our neat little ways of being that are cut and dry.

Confusing it well may be, but to see confusion as negative is a value judgement of the rational mind. We might call this degree “the glories of confusion,” and find that out of confusing truths the most fantastic shapes and sizes are continually being born. Or again we might say that the path of confusion is just as valid a way as any other to reach higher consciousness. Work with guardian angel Yeratel and daimon Ronove.

Daimon Ronove is connected with the Six of Wands, Mars, Cinnamon, and the Moon. If you’ve been working with this daimon expect to learn to control your emotions wile studying languages, divination, dream interpretation, and intuitional knowledge.

The fixed star of this degree happens to be Zeta Lupus in Lupus the Wolf. I’ve written a bit about Lupus before, and I encourage everyone to venture to that blog post as it was quite thorough. If you would like to see something a bit more in a Biblical vein this may be helpful.

I hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day. Next week I leave the current store I’ve been training at to work at a different store which is closer to my house. There are five stores total in our specific franchise for the cosmetology company I am working part time for.

So I have two keys now; the one my manager gave me and a gold one for the store I begin working at this week. Maybe I’m going to be being bounced around between the two of them! I successfully survived my first Saturday alone though! Oh, and a key to my bedroom because we updated the doorknobs to have locks. Three keys in one week!

I do believe though that the key my manager gave me has a direct tie in to something with this zero point energy! It’s all coming full circle for me given my “word” for 2022 seemed to correlate with this theme. 🌌👩‍🚀

Self Examination Saturdays: ケルベロス Kero-chan, Guardian of the Clow Cards

“I don’t want to be your ‘master.’ I want to be your friend.” – Sakura Kinomoto

May the underlined hyperlink text lead you on an exciting journey today; be sure to click on them as I’ve made sure to share some anime and astrology videos today as well as some intriguing websites! “If I’m underlined ‘click me’ because I go somewhere…”

🪄🃏🌸

As I have a set of Card Captor Sakura Cards (Pink) which I’ve used on occasion for tarot readings at my blog I saw a fun asteroid I wanted to plop today into a Solar Arc Direction or SAD Chart today. This was one of many of my favorite magical girl anime growing up although I did outgrow them especially after Puella Magi Madoka Magica because it came to me at a time of studying shadow work and Carl Jung.

With age I just kind of outgrew the genre. I don’t know, but being Magha nakshatra watching the Puella series was kind of… I don’t have a word to describe it! You have to watch the anime series to understand. If you follow my studies I think you’ll grasp why the magical girl trope stuck with me in my youth. Most especially the puella archetype! It’s hard to explain without one digging through my blog archives and getting to know me. I’ve done a lot of buildup with my astrology/esoteric studies.

See I share a birthday with some very famous people; Carl Jung is one of them, and I fell in love with his work! It is said I believe the creator of the Puella series made it during a period of depression, and oh how I relate! The series put me on such an emotional roller coaster through my empathy and Reiki attunements.

Kero-chan or just Kero is a fictional character in CLAMP’s manga/anime series whose name is similar to the Greek version Kerberos, but may often be rendered Cerberus. Before Clow Reed the creator of the Clow Cards died he appointed Kero as the one who would select a potential candidate to be the next “master” of the cards with his fellow guardian Yue. When Sakura Kinomoto inadvertenly releases the cards it is Kero who chooses her as the candidate teaching her the basiscs of capturing the cards.

The true form of Kero is that of a huge tawny mane-less lion/cougar with enormous angelic white wings and a breastplate with a metal helmet studded in large red precious stone. In his borrowed form Kero resembles a lion cub or stuffed animal plush toy with yellow orange fur, big ears, and small white wings.

The nature of Kero is that of a bossy, demanding, and gluttonous video game lover who eats snacks and sweets while drawing his power from the Sun which generates his own energy. He is responsible for giving Sakura the Sealing Wand and believing that she will be the next “master” of the Clow Cards. This remarkable and intelligent creature is knowledgeable not only on the Clow Cards, but also on all forms of mysticism with a knack for reading magical auras.

For more information on the manga/anime and Kero-chan please visit the following websites:

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Kero

You will find asteroid Kero was originally in my 10th House, but for this chart is now in my 11th House of Virgo at 11° forming a stellium with Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter. This form of chart also moves my Midheaven to this location when compared with natal placements.

Natal I also had a stellium which in the creative sign of Leo at my 10th Houses made me selfish at times, but we learn to share the light. Virgo is, however, a sign of work and getting things done through becoming organized, productive, and keeping to a schedule while learning how to take it easy when necessary in the 11th House. Asteroid Kero is in opposition to my Sun.

This energy is a signal for one who is unusual with an interest in technology, metaphysics, and New Age past times. We don’t like to be tied down and we have an expansive intellectual mind. Our goals may not be in balance with our ego. We can see two or more sides to every story, our schedules can be hectic pushing us beyond our limits, and we usually face a lot of challenges in life.

The chart holder has the power to tap into energies in a direct way grasping situations immediately while deeply feeling what is going on around them. One knows that most of it has to do with ties to the past that have created chronic stuck places. The chart holder is able to help others to release these energy knots so that they may move on.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A four year old girl dressed as a nurse.” The four year old girl dressed as a nurse has an immediate healing effect. This degree signifies the magic of tapping directly and spontaneously into the wavelength of healing and merging with our inner wisdom. Work with guardian angel Lauviah and daimon Gusion.

Daimon Gusion works with the Seven of Pentacles (here is another great interpretation of this tarot card), Venus, Eyebright, and Cancer. Gusion aids with discerning whether someone truly loves you or not by granting you the wisdom necessary to see through the illusions of other’s intentions.

This daimon bestows one with honor and dignity as well as positions of authority. Known as the Master of Public Relations this daimon hates disputing situations and plays the role of intermediary.

Work with Black Rutilated Quartz to compel the best outcomes while focusing on paying careful attention to detail which will give you the authority and wisdom to manage specific tasks/situations with ease. Affirm that you have a cherished desire for all to go well today.

This degree sits on two fixed stars known as Alsuhail in the sails of Argo Navis the Great Ship and Zosma in Leo the Lions back on the rump. Suhail means “Smooth Plain.” The fixed star Alsuhail has the energies of Saturn and Jupiter giving prosperity and strength of mind/spirit.

Very little is given for this particular fixed star. Zosma is a Persian word meaning “The Girdle, Enzonement, and Loincloth.” The Iranian continent referred to this fixed star as Wadha, the Wise, in Khorasmi it was referred to as Armagh, the Great, in China this fixed star was known as Shang Seang or the Higher Minister of State, and in Egypt Zosma was symbolized as Pikhorion or the Shoulder.

The Vedic astrology knows this as the nakshatra Purva Phalguni and if you’re curious there is a whiteboard video.

Have a spectacular Saturday! I’m heading off to get some much needed rest after the week I’ve had! 🍱🧋

Wisdom Wednesdays: Do You Have a Final Destination to Reach/Achieve

“Control your own destiny or someone else will.” – Jack Welch

I kind of feel a bit like strapping on some roller skates the way I did when I was a child for this blog post and letting my Siberian Husky lead the way through all the underlined hyperlink text that helps us navigate through the twists/turns presently although my current left ankle probably would no longer agree with this and rebel against the concept.

🛼🦮🏞️

Asteroid Destinn (6583) is said to be the destination that awaits you and demands your attention in life so I thought today as I’m short on time I’d just pick it apart as it’s something I can quickly and easily do with my free time before I return to the insanity that has become my everyday life! Most of my chores and obligations are relatively done now so that I can legitimately “relax and unwind.”

Except that my mind is no longer able to do so amidst everything it’s processing in its centralized hard drive. Destinn is a derivative of the obsolete form of destiny through the French language which is also etymologically tied to the word fate.

I’m really enjoying the energy this week of the Solar Arc Direction or SAD chart so I’m finishing my week utilizing the same theme. Asteroid Destinn at birth was in my 10th House, but today it presents a challenge by nesting in my 11th House of Virgo at 17° in what many call a stellium as on this chart it presently is with Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter. This form of chart also moves my Midheaven to this location when compared with the natal placements.

Asteroid Destinn is oppposition Sun and Mercury as well as semi square Mars. This presents challenges to the sense of personal identity whereby there are serious obstacles and one is forced to halt for a while contemplating turning back. It indicates a time of strong inner contemplation in the sphere of personal development where one later shares messages with the wider public and attempts to gain wider perspectives.

It’s a time when everything in life hits up against cross purposes. Issues creep in of insecurity and self doubt, loyalties begin to divide, and the chart holder feels as if they are having choices made by others or forced upon them against their will. There life becomes unpleasant when they are forced to suffer and accept sub-optimal levels of satisfaction which creates disharmony.

What is really occurring is disagreement in valuable objectivity where the rigidly defined people surrounding the chart holder don’t want to see a different perspective and defend their opinions too vehemently thereby all involved miss out on constructive cooperation.

If it appears on the outside that everything is okay the honest answer is it really is not!

What is occurring for the chart holder is that they are seeing all the red flags in the relationships they’ve invested into and are realizing now is actually the time during fight or flight when one should “run” as in the flight response is highly activated in the nervous system.

Reason being this becomes toxic relating if others are unwilling to take a mediating stance instead of “forcing” upon another primary reason being they’re harming the chart holder’s health. This is known as one of astrology’s worst aspects by many. Everyone is being way too competitive with the chart holder acting from “my way or the highway” demanding they be listened to as if they were a military drill sargent who knows it all and knows what is best at all times.

This destructive way of treating someone does not allow for any “growth” in life and leads to limiting lifestyles or beliefs creating a caged bird effect on the chart holder who will never learn to spread their wings and take flight.

The hypothalamus being impaired during these events is the chart holder’s Third Eye chakra which involves important bodily processes such as regulating body temperature, metabolism, energy balance, and circadian rhythms. This is directly tied to the endocrine system through the pituitary gland, adrenal glands, thyroid glands, and lastly the ovaries/testes.

For a female such as myself their will be problems with fertility through modulation or regulation of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels as well as the luteinizing hormones and follicle stimulating hormones which the pituitary uses to stimulate the ovaries.

“I’ve taken my destiny into my own hands and I’m in a happy place.” – Charlie Simpson

This dysfunction leads to inflammation, chronic pain/fatigue, oxidative stress, and a reduction of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. The chart holder is asked to improve their health by the following methods when they are finding themselves landlocked into living with toxic surroundings/people:

  • Drink green tea to mitigate negative effects of high fat diets on the hypothalamus and to decrease inflammation as the environment you’re living in will create a cytokine storm.
  • Avoid saturated and trans fats while beefing up on omega 3 fatty acids such as flax seed oil to reverse the damage and reduce the impending cytokine storm which will wreak havoc on your overall well being.
  • Get active and exercise!
  • Just say NO to the entire SAD or Standard American Diet. There should be zero highly refined or processed foods and one should begin eating more vegetarian/vegan while reducing carb intake. The diet most Westerner’s eat cradle to grave creates metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance.
  • Cultivate a healthy gut biome.
  • Consume antioxidants by supplementing quercetin through herbal teas, red wine, or apples. Any antioxidant rich foods will support as well as protect the brain. You want a colorful plate of mixed fruits, vegetables, and often gluten free grains.
  • Try chromium to assist with insulin activity normalizing your blood sugar response.
  • Practice meditation which will help to balance GABA, serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitter release. Yoga will have a similar effect.
  • Reduce stress levels anywhere that you can and ensure you receive a good night’s sleep.
  • Try acupuncture!

If as I said in yesterday’s blog post our 10th House is our Midheaven directly influencing our life path/future and is ruled by both Capricorn and Saturn then our 11th House is where we help others, our hopes/dreams for our future, where we engage in emotional healing, and where we would normally display generosity. Aquarius and Uranus rule this astrological house therefore it has a humanitarian aspect.

Virgoans here take a broad perspective to life and they don’t want to be surrounded by nitpicking, fault finding, and short sighted people. They become health conscious individuals who are modest, humble, and detail oriented. In fact 11th House Virgo wants a vegetarian/vegan support group and friends who will empower them through cleanses or “pure” diets.

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Destinn

This degree will display something a little like this. The chart holder has much to communicate to other people, but the question is whether or not they are ready to receive their ideas. They see beyond the limits others create and believe in gaining a very broad perspective on existence. People though can be quite attached to limits because boundaries make them feel safe. So the chart holder attempts to be careful about when, where, and how they share what they inherently know so that it does the most good.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old bald woman talking to her dog.” The woman’s bald head signifies a mind freed of thoughts. She can communicate with the dog from pure instinct and receive back the dog’s messages. In the past when a little girl she had the instinctive nature of the dog which became later overlaid with intellectuality and objectivity which has now faded away returning her to her former state and allowing her to recontact her own animal nature more directly. This is in essence a sort of time travel returning to the past in the future.

This degree is about reconnecting with the ground of one’s being and communing with one’s source. Doing so creates a clearer perception of the way one has developed and the course that’s been taken. It is a way of both assessing and grounding one’s overall evolution. Work with guardian angel Melahel and daimon Aim.

Daimon Aim ties to the Four of Cups, Neptune, Bay Leaf, and Cancer. This daimon is great for dreamwalking/dreamwalkers and working with the transpersonal chakras. Aim divests one of cognitive rigidity empowering one to develop creativity, wit, and to avoid the deception of others. One will gain a wider knowledge or gnosis of biology by working with this daimon.

Work with Amazonite to express and free your spirit through compelling others to open up, bring lightness to their hidden stories, and transform lives in an instant. Affirm that you ask that your life force be strengthened right now!

Have a wonderous Wednesday! I’ll see you all when I have some free time again! 🤹‍♀️

“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside of you.” – Rumi

PS: My manager at my part time cosmetology job got me the coolest key for the store as I have my first Saturday this week working alone. She has given me a “key to the Universe/Cosmos.” I love it! 🥰

Teach Me Tuesdays: Overcoming Obstacles (Companion to Manifestation Mondays)

“Let go completely of all worry, anxiety, fear, or need to control. Give it completely up.” – Ganesha

Come along for a chance to jump over some hurdles via our underlined hyperlink text today!

🐘🛕🕉️

Before I begin there may be a slight discrepancy with yesterday’s blog post because I’ve looked again at the chart and tried to assess how my Libran house falls between both the 12th House, Ascendant, and 1st House. It’s highly possible Libra 26° of Asteroid Spirit is in fact in the 1st House. This would be just slightly significant in that most of us get stuck in rigidly defined personas which begin to shape our consciousness.

While the 12th House can cause a person to not know who they are losing the boundary or focus essential to their stability the 1st House is very much about likewise being too defined by the props of our ego which is a fiction in fact it can often be the “legal fictions” by which many of us operate for it is the mask shaping all accumulated experiences of our past.

You see the “legal fiction” is fortified by everything Ketu dislikes which is work/career, status/hierarchy, and relationships. Both of these astrological houses combined by an Ascendant therefore create a sticky and peculiar illusion we navigate in the 3D.

You see your Ascendant is a signature of dense physical garb describing you; a vehicle if you will which holds an immortal soul. The sign this falls in gives you the key to unlocking that which should be striven for this lifetime. Each incarnation your chances to grow spiritually and perfect yourself are enhanced through this struggle you’ve entered into.

The road of life which you take is defined by the Ascendant as your soul purpose and liberation point. Therefore in Libra we are to become a World Peacemaker through mental constructs fostered by the ruler of enlightenment known as Uranus who nourishes our occult training. This then becomes the link to world cultures, affairs, and social welfare.

Libra has a particular embodiment asked of it which is to fully accept all of its power, potential, and gifts by holding the celestial balance within their hands as a Cosmic judge, artist, lover, and peacemaker of the heavens. The healing charms and powers used for the benefit of self serve others through “we” not “me” consciousness to bring people together, repair lost dreams, and to purify consciousness.

And with that I won’t be explaining the birth, “legal fiction,” and self reliance or natural law concepts here because well that is best left to others as it will involve topics I prefer to not discuss on my astrology website/blog. Anyone who wants to investigate those exceptionally “touchy” topics may do so as they see fit for it will definitely be the butt heads against what is also referred to as the sovereign citizen movement.

Again these are issues of literalisms versus occultism which I don’t wish to get bogged down into or flame warred over with regards to legal or linguistic principals. After all I’m still “in the Matrix” so to speak! Albeit every single time I manage a personality test for that series I test as a Morpheus archetype.

I’ve seen a lot of people who hate the series or who simply don’t want to understand that it’s definitely heavily laced with Kabbalistic tones which for those online who know certain “circles” anyone with any Ashkenazi Jewish descent right now is gonna receive a boat load of “hatred.” And well I have a share of that on maternal as well as biological paternal.

We’re lumped into a group of people that engender so much stigmatism and peculiar beliefs we’re just really more often than not thought of as very much undesirable, unwanted, and so forth even if we’re not tied with certain questionable organizations.

Pesky Personality Tests Which Are Not Always Accurate

As I’ve said I’m quite the solitary or loner who simply chose my own path and seeks answers. I don’t belong to any extra curricular activities or “groups” that many choose to commit psychological warfare with. I’ve been online as a content creator since the late 90s so I’ve seen more than my fair share of rubbish! Or as I’ve said I don’t do “partnering” up well; I have that doesn’t always play well others thing for some reason to work on.

I’ve learned today that Ketu is not a physical planet rather it is a shadow planet of mystery known as Moksha Karaka indicating liberation through enlightenment, bliss, and the prevention of any one of us taking a rebirth via the 12th House of our astrology chart!

When Ketu blesses us we receive healing abilities and psychic powers, but some believe those who receive the negative aspect of Ketu will experience illness, heightened anxiety/fear, and well something about “ghosts” again. Yes, you read that correctly; “ghosts.” I guess now I can see why my Twitter friend, the Vedic astrologer, said we are like those Boos in the Mario franchise because of this peculiar belief.

“If you want to travel on the path of moksha (ultimate liberation), ‘You’ (the Self) do not have to ‘do’ anything. And if you want to wander in the worldly life, ‘You’ have to ‘do’ everything.” – Dada Bhagwan

It is said that offsetting the negative effects of Ketu is best done through the worship of Ganesha to overcome any obstacle created by Ketu which will assist with acquiring immense knowledge, spirituality, and luxury. I’m really not huge into “remedies or indulgences” therefore I don’t want to start digressing into those methods per say. What I do know is that many associate the following correspondences with Ganesha:

  • His elephant head and pot belly signify prosperity.
  • The color vermilion red or orange red is associated with eradicating grief, pain, and suffering (is that why my accent wall where my wealth altar is placed and the new top blanket of my bed are red).
  • Ganesha activates our Third Eye chakra.
  • Career growth is easily accessible, financial difficulties are resolved, and success in business is earned via the worship of Ganesha.

Now if we were to consider the blog post I did expressing links to the Golem folklore of a being created from clay with relation to “truth” then we’d learn how Ganesha is the planetary overlord of Ketu or those ruled by Ketu. The body of Ganesha was created via clay by Goddess Parvati who later infused life into it.

When Ganesha was beheaded becoming like Ketu who is seen as a headless lower half of a severed snake we learn of the elephant head which is to become Ganesha’s new appearance. If we place Ketu within Sagittarius we come into contact with Gaja Roopa known as the face of an elephant God.

Ganesha rides upon a mouse, is a leader of the Ganas, a destroyer of the hurdles placed before us, and the son of Shiva/Parvati. The elephant head signifies the Atma also known as the soul which encompasses the Supreme Reality. It is his human body which represents Maya or illusion. The trunk is in fact representative of the sound of cosmic reality while the head denotes wisdom.

The goad of the right hand helps propel humanity forward on their path, however, the noose held in the left hand captures all difficulties. There is much more to the iconography of Ganesha which anyone can learn.

This Hindu deity serves to destroy vanity, selfishness, and pride. When we incarnate with a ruler such as these two we are carrying perfected abilities with us from previous incarnations. Ketu is a friend in your chart of Mars and Jupiter remaining neutral towards Saturn, Mercury, and Venus while being the enemy of the Sun and Moon. Rahu is our worldly desires in opposition to the planet of spirituality, intense concentration, deep perception, inertia, and a connection to chaos.

Anyone who is strongly associated with Ketu will feel connected to something higher than them having Divine guidance governing their ability to access esoteric knowledge, alchemy, hypnotism, and telepathy.

“So, what do you do for a living? You may be sorry you asked.” – Unknown

Some see the negative side of Ketu as tied to cemeteries, burial grounds, and graveyards. The linkage with Mars can erupt into arguments, misunderstandings, or it can become courage. The seperativeness of this planet makes one introverted, unafraid of getting through life alone, introspective, and indicates our genetic baggage.

A Ketu ruled inidividual takes a strong liking towards astrology for it was Ganesha who was the first in the Hindu pantheon to take on the role of seer/astrologer. This will radiate further into tantrics, tarot readers, pranic/reiki healers, and those capable of accessing the Akashic Records. Our infamous Ketu rules our roots, but this includes depth analysis, examination, contemplation, and research often linked to code language such as what we find behind our mobile phones, laptops, and software applications.

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Ganesa

I’m returning to the Solar Arc Direction or SAD chart today. Here we see that asteroid Ganesa moved from my 9th House to my 10th House of Leo 21°. Making few aspects in my chart this asteroid is only semi sextile Mercury and sextile Saturn. Here we’ve taken higher education, philosophical pursuits, law, and long distance travel towards the arena of career, social status, and life path.

While the 9th House may be seen as college, the philosophies one subscribes to, and communication of these themes through writing it is the 10th House which becomes an indicator of one’s profession. Our 10th House is our Midheaven which directly influences our life path/future. The 10th House is ruled by both Capricorn and Saturn.

When we add Leo to the mix we find that one has to shine in their career being recognized for what they do. They will often be dominating which is why they prefer to work independently being proud of their accomplishments. This is the placement of one who communicates their insights, understands human nature, and is always being sincere.

We will be curious about life while analyzing, organizing, and defining how we interact with others. We enjoy the psychological currents, rational mind, and may appear reserved or secretive. Our greatest enjoyment is building our own secret cosmos to wander around in where we express our creative insights.

Usually this is the placement for those who match mental skills with open/honest communication personal or professional in nature while often taking to writing blogs or posting videos via the world wide web. We enjoy teaching about a wide variety of topics, but generally also have an interest in our ancestors and our collective past.

The chart holder has the capacity to attune to spiritual realities in a constant and patient manner projecting an aura of peace and exaltation into the world even when busy at work or grappling with challenges/conflicts. This calm and lucid atmosphere the chart holder creates is still there helping to imbue the people around them with harmony. The more the chart holder becomes aware of this the more they will be able to allow it to happen and the greater its positive effect will be.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “a holly bush covered with berries. It is in the snow.” The holly is alive and thriving in the death of winter. This degree has the power to bring vitality to bleak and barren landscapes and to affirm life even in the midst of those forces which are against it. A light is shone into the darkness persistently and joyfully helping others to see joy and possibility where none seems to exist. Work with guardian angel Rochel and daimon Decarabia.

Daimon Decarabia represents the Seven of Swords, Moon, Peace Lily, and Aquarius. I’ve previously covered Decarabia if you’re interested in finding information there. Additional information on this daimon indicates that you’ll often see Decarabia appear as a star within a pentacle particularly a flaming pentacle to symbolically stand for the fifth element linked to Cosmic consciousness.

This degree is about being an individual who is confident, flamboyant, and brave with an unrelenting and focused nature who accomplishes the near impossible with notable success. The affirmation is I am inventive, determined, and quirky which works for me.

The crystal assigned to this degree is one I could find scant information on so I’ve skipped it for today. Have an awesome Tuesday, and if I don’t blog the rest of the week it’s because I’m busy tending to my mother’s health or will be back at my part time cosmetology job. 🪔

PS: Am I the only who has noticed that it appears WordPress updated, but there are significant issues now with the way they format when you compose all your blog posts including the resizing of images is completely wonky?! I really don’t like it at all! It’s creating havoc in my life trying to figure the “bugs” out.
