We have a New Moon in Gemini on a degree that has occurred several times in my years of studying astrology. It’s a degree that I really don’t want to focus upon at this time because for the concept of today’s blog post I don’t particularly vibe with energy it speaks to whatsoever. I’ve decided to place my focus elsewhere and do something different instead to elevate the day rather than “trigger” anyone through divisive topics.

You see the energies of this New Moon many would be astrologers as well as those who are “trendy/popular” want to play up this degree and placement. Meanwhile it’s aspecting fixed star Aldebaran, Mars, and Jupiter promoting the energies of karmic vengeance/retribution, anger, and rage.

When we compound this with the Saturnine energies present we get negative thinking, nasty words spoken, and we should do everything we can to not project these energies onto those we care about. To channel this New Moon what you want to focus upon is turning over a new leaf, questioning old habits, and inventing new ways to make progress with your goals.

This fixed star corresponds to a group of stars which in classic literature were described as causing backstabbing, muddled thinking, evil dispositions, and violence. Some see this as harnessing the energies of unceasing anger and avenging murder all of which I for one don’t desire to put my energies into. I’d advise other esotericists and would be astrologers or tarot readers to re-think about promoting this New Moon due to it’s current aspects or vibrations.

Try to place your attention on something else today for where our focus is that is actually what we begin to attract into consciousness. It’s best not to play around with such negative prospects when we can transmute them to a more positive outcome.

Just looking at the above is enough explanation to why aspects of my personal life have suddenly been uprooted and become stressful especially at my part time cosmetology job. The last thing I want when I have family drama from time to time is to confront the unnecessary nitpickiness, micromanaging, or even workplace aggression of co-workers or managers.

I don’t even know what happened or why it feels like a repeat of a previous experience I had in this industry a few years ago, but I’m frankly unwilling to re-live the trauma a second time.

Ironically I did an astrology study for my recent part time cosmetology gig and learned quite a lot tonight in terms of the who, what, where, when, and how. Insightful to say the least! I won’t be publishing this, however, I did share my research with a couple of people.

Solar Arc SAD Chart for Asteroid Sunflower

I’m going to work upon a SAD or Solar Arc Direction chart with a snapshot of asteroid Sunflower (19019) while explaining some of the symbolism or mythology behind this beautiful flower as I’ve just had the ones sown in the garden begin to open. I’ve also got some more photos to share with everyone of our progress at the end of May despite some rather unforgiving Texas heat. Neither I nor the plants are enjoying this scorcher of a season.

I’m going to be a little less in depth today simply to return to a less lengthy post session as it’s also a holiday today. We find asteroid Sunflower placed in my natal 3rd House retrograde Sagittarius while the Solar Arc has moved this to 4th House Aquarius at 4°.

Here we’re moving from intellect, communication, mind, and information perception to where we wish to establish our roots or home, our mental peace, and where we feel most secure. We’ll pass over aspects and do a direct focus on the degree as well as the symbolism of the sunflower today. I’m in love with this Sabian symbol again; perhaps a correlation to yesterday!

The chart holder has the power to trace anything backwards to understand its source. Other people who engage in this process often don’t go far enough, but this degree is intent on origins continually looking under anything found to seek its cause and source of support.

The highest result of this is the complete cleaning out of all negative karmas by clearing them at the root.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many fireflies at dusk.” The dark may be vast and engulfing, but the light is always there to help us let go of doubt and uncertainty knowing we have the power to overcome any and all challenges.

This degree is about little seemingly insignificant things serving as lights, and more importantly about the way our light calls to the light of others creating mutual enhancement and encouragement thereby helping us all to always remember who we really are. Work with guardian angel Hekamiah and daimon Zepar.

Daimon Zepar correlates with the Eight of Pentacles, Venus, Black Mustard, and Virgo. When we work with Zepar we may experience various forms of fertility including mental and artistic inspiration. This daimon assists with mental alchemy and disolution of one’s little ego. The goal or focus is to remove phobias while breaking down disadvantagous thought patterns from forming. Zepar works in two spheres that of the Earth and the Sun.

Let’s look at the mythology and uses of sunflowers below.

The Helianthus:

This degree sits upon the fixed star Oculus in Capricorn’s eye. It is associated with the Hebrew letter Yod and the tarot trump The Wheel of Fortune. The energy is often displayed as piercing intellect. If I don’t blog on Tuesday this week please know that I’m busy tending to mom’s health as well as other important tasks that take priority, but I’ll see where I am as the week continues with time management.

Have a great New Moon, Memorial Day, and mesmerizing Monday! 🪔🌻

A bee caught within the center of a zinnia as well as several other flowers on display.
A tangled mess of carrot tops!
Heads of lettuce galore!
The roma tomatoes have grown again. I have seen about three flowers, but am still waiting for more.
Basil in the front as well as the back of the garden is doing quite well even with having to transplant some of it. The recent thunderstorms caused some havoc for a few of our plants/wildflowers. Extreme weather is not a good friend, but does indicate the nature of Mother Earth.
Another round of harvested beans; many were left as they were not matured!

PS: More garden photos from when I awoke this Monday! 📷🥔🍅

Sage and more beans on the way due to continued flowering as well as growth.
More sunflowers opening and showcasing their beauty. The birds have already been staking claim before they go to seed by sitting atop the thick stems and large leaves. I believe they’re also eating the bugs in our garden.
Roma tomato flowers are slowly beginning to appear here/there.
Zinnias and marigolds!
Gold rush! More yukon gold potatoes; I’ve harvested and re-planted all the baby potatoes. We’ve also cut up our sprouted sweet potato to plant as seed potatoes.

Everyone digs/searches for gold in their own way LOL! 😹
An otherwise unknown yellow wildflower!
