Sign Spotlight Sundays: Change of Plans While Helping Care for My Mother’s Health

“The faithful of Shiva or Dionysus seek contact with those forces which…lead to a refusal of the politics, ambitions, and limitations of ordinary social life. This does not involve simply a recognition of world harmony, but also an active participation in an experience which surpasses and upsets the order of material life.” – Alain Daniélo

Normally I reserve Sundays to continue my trek through the zodiac signs. I wanted to finish the Western zodiac so that I could move onto the Chinese zodiac or the Hindu lunar mansions, but as I’ve said I’m working through my own personal healing post being sick with severe allergies and dehydration with my mom’s pneumonia. It dawned on me this morning that I’m in an archetypal synchronous mental funk I’ve never acted out before. I feel like all these different personas are now coming out of me that it’s almost like a strange “madness” I have to try working with not against to heal. Here is what I am conscious of as of Tuesday and Saturday. I don’t feel “normal” by these experiences at all! I feel very strange. I’ve blogged before that I’m a huge fan of Jung’s concept on working with our shadow, but this year has already begun with me feeling overwhelmed! My brain is so confounded!

The underlined hyperlink text as is usual is here to help you follow what I’ve been researching and trying to “understand/innerstand” as I process what I’m feeling or thinking at present. Have I lost my sanity or am I processing this correctly?! I think someone would perceive me as neurotic or hysterical. 🍇😵🤷

When we covered Capricorn I focused back on my wealth altar designed as honoring Hanukkah and the Book of Judith. It explains about the “virgin” consciousness of Bethulia akin to Bethlehem with Virgo. The story speaks of their starvation and thirst. What happens when you’re dehydrated? Electrolyte imbalances, and I needed an IV. During the electrolyte imbalance I was having heartburn and heart palpitations and other signs of severe dehydration all explained as I studied online about my own medical condition. The heartburn prevented me from having an appetite. Everything I ate made me sick! Our body is a temple that holds the spark of Divinity within so it matched the Book of Judith in my eyes whereupon I had to act and have family get me to Urgent Care as I could not re-hydrate myself on my own once I reached “severe.”

Am I strange for seeing or finding symbolism here which is uncannily a bit the same between the music I chose Saturday and the following:

I also previously mentioned that I’m usually an Apollo/Athena archetype, but in this I’ve taken to drinking fruit juice. Particularly grape juice; white in the morning with breakfast and red in the evening with dinner. I made a joke to family that I’m like a non alcoholic Dionysus archetype now. That I’ve been through a complete change during this experience on many levels, and I am no longer behaving as I did before I was dehydrated. Even my diet has been changed again through the month of January 2022 as has my mom’s. Except hers is that I’ve had to make a special electrolyte drink for her due to her asthma inhaler having given her oral thrush and she can not have Pedialyte as I did. She is still even today having residual Levaquin side effects so while I got good sleep the last two to three nights tomorrow my step father returns to his full time job. I’m back to a busy schedule of helping mom get well so I won’t be blogging next week as much again if I’m “woman” of the house. While she is up trying to help with some of my tasks she is still in recovery so she can only help within her own limitations. I’m grateful for any assistance yet my week will be exhausting again, and I’m trying to psyche myself up for this. I’ve also made a juice with celery, romaine lettuce, and raspberries recently. Celery and romaine lettuce help with dehydration.  So I’ve seen improvements with my appetite now coming back and not suffering severe dehydration, but it took several days to regain my strength and energy. It also has required me to do tons of online research.

Here is what you find with the Dionysus archetype:

Jung’s First Dream, The Mad God Dionysus and a Madness Sanctuary called Diabasis

The Disguised Archetype: Androgyny And Otherness In Dionysus

Apollo vs. Dionysus

Chakra Water In The Eat-In Dining Room And Mom’s Garden Design Is Also On The Wealth Altar

Notable symbols on the wealth altar:

My step father 3D printed the dreidels for me. I’ve been at work on this for as I’ve said almost two decades now. Mom and I are Celtic astrology Holly and I inherited from my grandparents a California king oak tree bed. And I’ve told family this feels so bizarre and funny at the same time as I’ve been working through my own psyche from my 30’s onward. Especially also receiving my ancestral maternal family records showing we immigrated from Germany/Denmark in the 1800s roughly and the Ashkenazi Jewish in our DNA. Add in my Reiki attunements/Master certification, and I keep remembering that the entire process also says I have to heal myself when I began my course. Magha lunar mansion; ancestors and karma/dharma anyone?

So where is Dionysus in my chart? Natal Dionysus is 9th House Cancer 17°, transits 9th House Cancer 14°, and progresses to 9th House Cancer 29°. The 9th House involves philosophy and higher knowledge whereby its ruler determines how and where one expands their life. This could be through travel, books, people, or exploring different cultures and points of view. Here one formulates their belief system and this can happen as many times in one’s life as is necessary. We are more sophisticated in the 9th House developing the traits of remaining objective, processing more complex ideas, and participating in far distant travel even if it is just that of one’s mind.

What do these degrees imply? It’s like my garden for my natal placement. Cancer 17° teaches us that life energy comes into manifestation via certain forms; it grows and spreads. This life force acts as any germinating seed would when planted in the soil it penetrates and takes root. This sounds exactly like our Root or Earth chakras. There is a strong tenderness to these roots which are strong enough to find their own way to grow in our world. A seed idea takes root, advances rapidly, and organically completes manifestation. Cancer 14° is about refining one’s mental energies as if a dream is being examined within a vast inner chamber of solitude. One’s needs could be highly precise, refined, and even make them appear nitpicky, but when one goes into their dream world they begin to sort things out via a social exchange. How far must one bend to intertwine with the status quo? The answer comes from within yet the discrimination one must deploy here checks their inner knowledge or gnosis to identify if their inner dreaming is of a world of one’s own similar to Alice in Wonderland.

Cancer 29° focuses on one’s ideals regarding justice within the arena of fair decision making based upon the image of a blindfolded goddess Astraea holding scales in her hand to weigh matters justly. This process rests upon an assumption of objectivity and neutrality of one who would bear no investment in the outcome favoring neither side of a matter beforehand. One does not judge based on their personal vested interests. My Venus is also in Cancer. What happens on the 29th degree is that one becomes a Master. This position is the end of a sign before a new one begins. Here we are challenged to “Master” the sign and house before “dying” and being “reborn.”

The angels for these placements that we work with include Leuviah, Vasariah, Chavakiah, and Asaliah. Being that most of my chart has planets in my 10th/11th Houses of Leo/Virgo and being a Leo Sun Sign with an IC/MC on Capricorn/Cancer like the Earth’s tropics makes me feel as if I’ve been losing my mind (solar deities) recently at the onset of 2022. I hope that is not the case. I do not want to be locked in a psyche ward or padded room anytime soon. Maybe it’s my ego (I Am) or my 12th House is flaking out. That house is seen as the house of the subconscious/unconscious where we deal with unseen realms, sorrow, shadow, and invisible enemies. This state can help engender one’s successes or help one cope with their failures. Do I consciously confront my life or subconsciously/unconsciously sweep things under the proverbial rug?

Happy Sunday everyone! See you soon! Many wishes for your well being as I trudge along on the road to getting well while trying to figure out what I’m doing with my little astrology/esoteric business. I don’t even know at this point!

I think I’m having a Mad Hatter tea party presently!

PS: If you watched the Hebrew Alice in Wonderland version of “In A World of My Own” the description has an English translation which is a bit different from the standard version of the movie I grew up with. This is why I chose it! I’ve been avidly trying to learn the Hebrew alef bet over the years. 👂🎧💫

Also, I was reminded by my step father that today marks 4 years since my maternal grandfather passed. 🪦♻️ My Moon Reading for the upcoming week speaks of a Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio 4° which for my Virgo Moon is a time to center, reflecting on where I’ve been, how hard I’ve worked to get where I am, and to appreciate my journey. This mystical period asks us to journey into the subliminal and unconscious to access parts of the self which we have allowed to remain repressed/hidden while confronting our shadow. The Aquarian Sun helps our self reflection become evolutionary and transformative. Explains why I feel as I do.

Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the Sun.

(Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Jabamiah (ya-BA-mee-YAH) Recognizing Design Beneath Disorder, Alchemy, and Transformation)

There is an ability here to repel any and all energies coming from outside. In short, the person can be almost impervious to influence. They have a staunch integrity that refuses to be impressed or compelled even by the strongest of powers. They do not buy into what seems to be for they have the capacity to see beyond appearances into the spiritual reality of things.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A loud roar as a tornado approaches.” The loud roar gives one time to take cover or run away from the tornado. This degree is aware of mental obsessions, compulsions, and other consuming forms of negativity, and because it has an internal advanced warning system it instinctively will circumvent becoming involved in many forms of chaos and destructiveness. It knows that sometimes turbulence must be waited out and allowed to dissipate.

It is as unaffected by the mental mind-wind as the albino woman is unaffected by the scorching rays of the Sun. This ability to repel discord can help to set an atmospheric tone that helps others to not fall prey to their own raging mental vortexes.

Pleiadian Symbol: A nude woman holding a candle around which dances a moth.

Azoth Symbol: Sailors approach a lush island that has been calling to them but which is not on their maps.

Seed degree: Taurus 14. A woman making her way to the center of a labyrinth. (Omega Symbol). Finding the center within we attune to the higher light of pure love and tune out the lesser love which is solely selfish.

An old lady selling bunches of violets on a street corner. (Chandra Symbol). When we humbly and spontaneously offer our beauty to the world we are able to overcome the negative effects of all mental whirlwinds and conflict dramas.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol). Detaching ourselves from the force of selfishness we find within treasures that we have forgotten.

A black leopard with green eyes. (Chandra symbol). The conflicts and chaos that the mind can produce, when overcome, allows us to get in touch with our primal desires and find a way to constructively channel them.

Oracle: The alchemist Piaro Lambeth once generated an homunculus who from birth had been fed only dew collected during the full moon and melons picked only at night and preserved after picking from the rays of the sun. He gave her the name Lunadoria, and she lived her early life in the grotto beneath Lambeth’s house where visitors often came to hear her oracles which she murmured in some unknown tongue. And even though the visitors never understood the strange words of her pronoucements they found that days later they would dream a clear and vivid answer to their question which they attributed to the power that her words carried.

One day she asked to leave the grotto and Lambeth consented feeling that her desire was a sign of her maturing. When she emerged it was noted that even during the day she could not see the sun and that no matter how much her snow white skin was exposed to sunlight it never showed any signs of burning. And so she wandered the woodlands and the streets of Peth where she offered her pronouncements to anyone who questioned her.

Being now over 200 years old she appears to have aged in no manner.

I’ve got this; check out your central nervous system for the homunculus everyone. It was mentioned repeatedly regarding side effects of the fluoroquinolones. I studied this post foot fracture when finding safe alternatives for chronic pain to replace the gabapentin and tramadol which was contraindicated that pain management placed me on which caused me suicidal ideation.
