We appear to be taking a detour today. The underlined hyperlink text will send us to a destination I did not expect to go to.
Perseverance is the relentless pursuit to achieve success towards accomplishing your desired goals. Achievements are accomplished not by trying, but by persevering against adversity.

Asteroid Perseverantia (975) is associated with an attitude of I will never give up as well as the ability to maintain tenacity for the long haul. With astute dedication, endurance, and discipline one can become a success. If we look at the house this asteroid inhabits we discover what area of life any individual has developed perseverance in. The sign is an additional marker to flesh the details out for further analysis.
I am going to use a new chart today. We will try the Local Space Technique. Natal charts represent the journey through life on Earth. This implies moving around the area where we live while utilizing the space we live in or traveling across the planet. A Local Space Technique takes intangible symbols found in your unique natal chart and makes them tangible as it translates them into horizontal parameters.
We discover where in our surroundings we find planetary energies which resonates well with Reiki especially with my Master level attunements and would be ideal for clients to consider having done for themselves or learning how to assess their own charts. One is placed in the center of the chart while both planets and yourself become placed directly on the plane known as the horizon.
Enlightenment allows anyone liberated in life to dissolve into a being of pure light. Beyond this is the Shakta known as the doctrine of the Goddess which can pass through the Rings Pass Not. This surface tension is a cosmic version of a black hole which at event horizon vanishes with no trace. Red light rays can not penetrate a black hole. Shaktas are worshipers of the Goddess known as Shakti or Devi.
The Rings Pass Not are allegorical circles within which are placed those confined in consciousness of the delusion of separateness/exile during the Yugas or Ages/Aeons. At present we have trampled the natural laws underfoot which should have the don’t tread on me flag placed over them so we recognize their importance.
There is a longer discussion of this for those interested who seek to understand this “process” whether one is currently experiencing it, have already experienced it, or have yet to experience this journey. I had begun this “process” well before taking up Reiki Master level certification or beginning my esoteric astrology business.
Imagine or visualize yourself in the middle of a large circle in a field with one line which goes from you to each planet’s position on that circle accompanying you wherever you move on Earth. This becomes your individualized personal compass. This is an extremely ideal way to attune to your piece of the Earth and your surroundings becoming even more valuable when desiring to change location or find a good place to spend a vacation.
I gather this is my 12th House at the Azimuth of 282°. Therefore we are looking at the 6th/12th House Axis. The Ascendant/Descendant is the horizon or rising/setting. When the Descendant is receiving the aspect of Perseverantia its effects are likely to be more subjective and psychological. This emphasizes your attitude, outlook, and personality inclinations ripe and ready for manifestation. The 6th/12th House axis shows the skills, maintenance work, and ability of one to tap into the needs of the public to provide a service without discrimination; it’s their professional function.
To understand this I had to place the degrees into a Local Space Astromap which gave me Aberdeen, Scotland (UK). I know very little of this area. But upon research I can safely say some areas are not where I desire to visit. Primarily due to the knowledge I have of those particular areas and their history they do not land on my list of desired destinations to travel to now or in my near future. All of which I simply can’t publish on a blog post as this knowledge or gnosis is of a personal nature bordering on extreme repulsion to the location which I do not have very often.
Some places give people the creeps due to the energy they give off or radiate. This is one of those places for me! I feel complete aversion to Aberdeen, Scotland the likes of which I have never sensed or felt before in my life. I can not explain this to anyone who would not understand it. It has to do with frequency, resonance, harmonics, and vibration of a person, place, or thing that is not in alignment with me. Feel free to form your own opinions and to research this area deeper than I have. In the interest of time and space I am literally not going to research it effectively. I have merely scratched the surface.

Beyond this comparison what might align for Perseverantia is the fact that it inhabits 12th House Libra 11° furthering the 6th/12th House Axis and thus the Ascendant/Descendant receive the energies. Familiar symbolism is found on this degree.
Tea leaves that form a pentagram.
Destiny openings. Carte blanche to enter upon fresh directions. A child of destiny. Offered by spirit protection, guidance, encouragement, and empowerment. You are the exception to the rule. The special exemption for future purposes extracted from the old regular patterns and given the chance to follow the inward instincts and sensibility completely. A distinctive quality of being marked out for destiny acceleration beyond what is reasonable or set up. The start of something big. Granted permission to make mistakes, make a fool of yourself, and still come up as the one everybody knows can and will do astounding things just because down the road somebody is calling you onward who cannot be refused.
I do believe I’ve worked on this degree once in my blog posts previously in terms of the Sabian symbols. Yes, this was asteroid Jabberwock’s transit circa January 1, 2022 to be exact. Far closer to what is within my Quadrivium book on my desk in my bedroom as well as the page taken from it to be placed upon my wealth altar.
This is that degree that bespeaks of the darkest of passages throughout which in life there is kept burning the lights of helping influences if the chart holder can maintain their contact with them. One is always aware within their being that where you place your attention is the key to moving beyond illusions of physical reality sensing that where one places their focus is what can ultimately change everything.
These tea leaves have settled after the tea was consumed leaving in their stead a pentagram. This is a meaningful synchronicity for this degree is about perceiving order which leads to finding meaning in the seemingly random occurrences of life. These meaningful coincidences are a way of connecting with the Divine as are the candles of the menorah at Hanukkah. To gain the most from this degree one has to become aware of these signs/symbols as they come to them becoming sensitive to their intuition and instincts so as to fine tune themselves to the spiritual forces that are in so many ways making themselves known.
The pentagram signifies the life force, harmony, and health which are organizing forces always there and always wanting to imprint themselves on our lives. There is only one spiritual light, but it manifests in many forms as signified by the candles of the menorah. Work with guardian angel Asaliah and daimon Vual.
Daimon Vual represents the Three of Cups, Mercury/Venus, Cancer, and Myrrh. I was made to laugh at the description of a love doctor daimon. Having just passed through Valentine’s Day I found the title inherently comical, but it’s probably my slight sardonic nature stewing today. Generally I’m seeing Vual strengthens relationships between friends and enemies forming a reconciliation as well as attracting people towards oneself. Usually worked with for those who may suffer low self esteem to rebuild confidence. This daimon also matches to a Friday correspondence.
I had to take the most unusual round-a-bout towards etymology which I won’t class as completely correct for Vual out of curiosity which pointed me towards veil, curtain (reduces the amount of light entering a room), and a mosquito net. My only reverse pscyhology then is to look up what mosquito totems would teach which I assume has something to do with itching, blood (people sucking your energy such as psychic vampirism), and themes of dis-ease. What I did not count on was for my search to legitimately bring up a website with 7 spirit animals linked to persistence; one being the mosquito!
Have an out of this world Friday! Sending you positivity! 😊
