Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Did You Do Your Shadow Work?

“Girls are scary when they’re angry!” – Kero

“The entire time since the Seal on the Cards was broken, I have been inside your heart.”

May the underlined hyperlink text illuminate your online migration today.

🖤✨🤍✨❤️

Today’s Card Captor Sakura Card has given us what in a traditional deck would be the High Priestess, however, is the Shadow. With a Number 2 expression let’s briefly unpack the memo from the Universe/Cosmos.

There may be deception around you. Almost certainly things are not at all what they appear to be so you should be alert. This may also come from unexpected sources so be advised to be careful of who you trust. Have your wits about you to pick up any signs of where the cause of this might lie.

This could either indicate that someone individually or collectively as a group have the actions or motives which are a little less than honest. It can show where you have been too trusting. The rug could be pulled out from beneath you at any time

The Shadow is a mischievous card that likes to cause trouble. Its first symbolism reflects the individual and collective dark side/self as well as the troublemaker archetype.

Something interesting is that Shadow needs Light to exist, but too much light will weaken it. This holds meaning related to the importance of balance (Yin/Yang, light/dark, and positive/negative).

After being transformed into a Sakura Card the Shadow helped with finding a friend who was lost in the anime/manga. The Shadow is under the power of Light, Sun, and Western magic.

The number two typifies the personality traits of compatibility and adaptive attitudes towards life. Considered to be the most feminine of all numbers its strength and power are often underestimated. Gentle, tactful, and diplomatic as well as forgiving and understanding.

It is the markings of those who love to keep the peace and avoid confrontations, however, they are the ultimate survivors with an uncanny resilience. As most services have gone subscription only or have issues about copyrights if you can view the anime through the following website for free I have chosen to include it.

I say this because for years I could watch free anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu, or Funimation. Today, however, as someone who has been online since the late 90s everything has transformed and free is disappearing. I think within reason sharing culture is also changing through this.

Terminology I would use would make many question me. I call it toxic capitalism somedays, but others call it stock and share holder. It becomes a bit more dog eat dog (Darwinism on crack/cocaine) or is that wag the dog.

Excuse my standard and extreme Ketu personality coming forward due to Magha nakshatra. I have a philosophy that becomes standard skeptic/cynic cause I have seen or rather lived enough is all I will say in our present system before I go on a weird rant of digression. Power and money/wealth unchecked cause corruption just my beliefs.

I’ve been trying so hard to keep politics and propaganda out, but I’ve also been extremely triggered recently by what I call psychological, sociological, and behavioral warfare through the mass hypnotic tell-a-lie-vision I sometimes encounter throughout the indoctrination accords of the Matrix. Those same tell-a-lies exist online as well even in the schools, religion, and books we mass consume.

Most then seem to believe I’m too highly sensitive, but frankly I’m just disgusted by some of the garbage put before me which I refuse to digest or consume. I’d rather starve and die thanks! That’s the beauty I guess of ego death. Sometimes you finally wake up and realize what you no longer want/need because it makes you sick, blocked, or unhealthy.

For those who wish to study the concept of the Shadow and the High Priestess in traditional decks please use the available options I have included.

The Shadow:

The High Priestess:

This archetype can have it’s upright and reversed correspondences if you catch my drift or cryptic hint.

I’m left also remembering my years of consuming Jpop, Jrock, and Kpop with this tarot card including Hurricane Venus. My high school through my twenties was consumed in anime/manga, Asian fashion/culture, and the above music genres outside of the 60s-90s music from the West.

Thank God/Goddess I grew up in a different “sharing” community than some of what exists today online because I once knew something and people online who were less “Me” culture as well as far more high vibe including sending care packages across countries to one another.

I still have eye lashes/makeup from a partner in Ireland who I blogged for as a licensed aesthetician who networked with my spa business doing features for cosmetic public relations and dresses from China I purchased despite import fees. I remember safely attending SXSW Japan Nite being downtown absorbing the music till 1-2 AM CST with no risk where I live unlike today with the crime.

I saw my favorite band from Japan there for free. Free! Unheard of today and they sold out all shows in the USA. I got into Japan Nite for $10 cover charge. I kid you not! It began around 7 PM CST. We were not hyper inflated economically. Women could walk downtown and not risk harm where I live. Not now don’t think of it!

I still have those dresses from China, and yes they still fit! I have nowhere to wear them though.

Life then was very different than the present. The entire world wide web was different. No chat bots, no rogue tweaked AI, no crypto scams, and a lot less insane bologna. A girl can reminisce enjoying her past, but sadly she can’t always live/return there. Dear God/Goddess, I miss the way it was then when I could enjoy life more.

May your Thursday be one of equipoise. 🤗

Teach Me Tuesdays: Stranger Things Can Happen And Probably Do

“Know your own limits! Surpassing them might not always be good, so be gentle with yourself!” — Unknown

If we look above my What Watch astrology app also shows us that within Cancer we have not just a New Moon, but the Sun, Asteroid Ceres, and Black Moon Lilith. That is some rather strong energy to be working with at present.

We’re asked by these energies what did you lack while growing up and what are the consequences of this upon your ability to provide self love. Black Moon Lilith in Cancer says there was not enough security in the domestic life and that children suffered anxiety, trauma, and poisonous family members who ignored the needs of their child for nurturance.

Mothers provided their young with power struggles, unavailability, and dysfunction junction. The creative was denied and children now want to move out at younger and younger ages. We’re not allowed nor have the time to heal the trauma.

Black Moon Lilith in Cancer is the sign of a transgenerational family where the women have suffered unnecessarily! And I can whole heartedly state I resonate with this 💯%!

The Lilith archetype was one of rebellion, vengeance, and daimonic creativity. How does that compare to the archetype of Ceres? And how do we embody these Divine Feminine energies?

Let’s hold a mirror up to these vibrations and see if we can see past the illusions gleaning some answers through the underlined hyperlink text. Trust me it will help you understand this New Moon better if you click on the underlines for further study!

🌑🪞👹😱🎑

Isn’t it odd that during my blog post on Sunday I located the information I did including Yudono-san when we have a New Moon in Cancer. I mean seriously even my name is eluding to this through it’s references to rebirth and waterfalls. Another Carl Jung synchronicity?! Or is that confirmation bias.

On my left foot though I don’t think I’d be doing the hiking because well my body can’t take it anymore. In fact I have a podiatrist appointment tomorrow at 2:15 PM CST right after I chauffeur mom to her 2 PM CST appointment with the same foot specialist. It’s literally a two for one family special.

I have come to realize the spasm I had was not just the problem of compression socks I had been informed to wear, but may be a calcium and magnesium deficiency. Which I was already supplementing for amino acid deficiency with my neuropathy.

I guess even eating healthy food and drinking plenty of water is still not enough with my body. So back to my daily regimen of two magnesium a day and getting my calcium intake back up.

Seriously like the Magha nakshatra says about the palanquin/throne someone would have to carry me over there because my left foot would just die after the injuries already sustained in it and the ongoing osteoarthritis that I struggle with.

Which brings me briefly to the topic of fear and death. I have someone who assists right now who seems to be a bit germophobic. This insanity to me began near or before the Rona. Death is not possible if we know anything from quantum physics and energy.

Fear on the other hand is psychosomatic dis-ease which causes paralysis hence why we saw everyone afraid to leave their houses which become prisons and coffins of your own making. You have two paths in life; fear and love.

Fear of death means you will never live because you’re scared to eat, drink, have sex, fly in an airplane, ride in a car, breathe, and so forth. You are dis-empowered due to the power your shadow has over you because fear comes from ignorance and darkness!

It has nothing to do with stepping beyond limitations. We’ve existed with germs as fungus, bacteria, mold, viruses, and such since the beginning of consciousness or creation.

And with no exposure you would have no immune system to fight so please everyone go somewhere and take a chill pill because I can’t live my existence like this or with you when you channel low vibration thriving on fear pornography 24/7/365 x infinity.

Or I will begin donning a Plague Doctor costume when I have to meet with you straight from the constellation Corvus as Crow/Raven. Death is just a transformation of energy; stop living in fear and choose love!

Now that we’re done with that digression our New Moon will occur where I live at 9:52 PM CST on June 29, 2022 in Cancer at 19°. If we all took a peek at our charts we’d locate which house is Cancer; mine it is the natal 9th House which is normally how I address these Moon phases, but I could certainly employ any number of other charts.

Age Harmonics would put this instead within my 4th House at age 42 soon to be 43 this July 26th.

“I asked the librarian for a book about Pavlov’s dogs and Schrödinger’s cat. She said it rang a bell, but she didn’t know if it was there or not.” – Unknown
“When things get tough, remember: whether you know them or not, there’s at least one person out there who you’ve impacted with your life.” — Unknown

A funny degree because yesterday I set up my Animal Crossing Pocket Camp as a wedding venue of sorts with all the decor I had so I’ve even got a dog marrying a cat in the game. I had not even begun considering the New Moon when I designed my camp and camper yesterday while resting my foot having completed all our laundry, dinner, and other chores.

The 9th House in comparison to the 4th House looks like a deep plunge into the meaning of life through higher realities beyond our logical mind where our past karmic actions performed in all our past births have led to our destiny/fortune.

If your 9th House is favorable in your chart you receive fertile land for yourself, but if it was afflicted your land becomes barren. The 9th House also speaks to dharma, worship, publicity, publishing, spiritual beliefs, temple pilgrimmages, meditation, and charity.

The 4th House is where we seek happiness internally through finding our way towards enlightenment/liberation. This deals particularly with heart, emotions, our concepts of mother, agriculture, our nourishment at home, and sleep.

It is directly tied to the Divine Feminine as well as the subconscious mind while making up the moksha trikona or spiritual triangle between 4th, 8th, and 12th Houses.

The spiritual aspirant does not go towards materialism rather they yearn for the doorway to liberation where they can free themselves from all materialistic attachments. The highest being the human body. They wish to let go of attachment to people, surroundings, and worldly pleasure to remove the cycle of birth/death.

Plug “liberty” into the search function of this blog and you will see how this shapes my beliefs so strongly. I eat, sleep, breathe, and drink this for I can not exist without such a concept as freedom!

4th House is a hidden house that expresses the inner core of your being and the roots/origin of your created personality impacting your decision making abilities of the future.

Your human quest is happiness and this is where you locate it. For some of us the house, car, clothes, and all other worldly pursuits mean nothing if we can not see the Divine within and express our gratitude, empathy, and compassion for the opportunity to seek and receive moksha.

This degree wherever it lies within your chart will read as follows. Please note that this likely is expressed also through the marriage of heaven and Earth.

“What bird movie won an Oscar? Lord of the Wings.” – Unknown

The chart holder is trying to find keys to understanding themselves through new ways of communicating. They need to approach this in a gradual way while keeping at their efforts. They can easily become frustrated and the antidote to this is patience coupled with perseverance.

The world always seems unusual to them for they take nothing for granted. This is a beautifully open minded way of being so long as they can avoid becoming overly insecure.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An opossum comes out into the moonlight.” The Chinese characters are a whole world of pictures to be explored and understood little by little. The opossum, too, is engaged in exploring. This is an Aries degree with the sign Aries ruling all things exploration.

The degree is highly subjective and interior. It wishes to be left to its own impulses and doings without having to answer or justify itself. It seeks meaning in everything desiring to understand how that meaning all fits together, but not from any logical/rational viewpoint.

This is a degree of feeling via the life of the imagination. It’s way of understanding anything is highly personal. Work with guardian angel Aniel and daimon Phenex. I’ve previously covered both of these more than once so I’m diverting you to the following blog post for more information on the guardian angel as well as daimon for effective insight.

Of note this Wednesday our Moon will make a T-Square with Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. These are the combined energies of water, fire, and Earth. An ongoing battle happens in the subconscious where each energy is fighting to dominate the other.

You will find two in opposition with one acting as arbitrator. Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn operate in Cardinal Mode being ambitious desiring to begin new adventures, working on them instantly, and never stopping until success is attained. Your goal is to learn to use your energy efficiently.

Now let’s look deeper into this pattern. Aries is a “Me” first temperament with Cancer as the home/family and Capricorn is the embodiment of our economy and government at large.

This implies that the pressures cascading throughout our collective societies are now falling onto our homes/families while Saturn insists on following and defining the rules and Uranus waits to come thundering down in a bolt of lightening with inspiration to fuel Pluto’s clapping hands over a need for transformation.

Written another way home/family is under assault from society and government while the “Me” generation awaits a driving force that will give them direction and these are all in fact generational planets with an impetus for great resurrection and change.

Jupiter has fueled this fire by asserting that Cancer and our 4th House maintain our families and value systems correcting what has been done to and by our generations at large on the 3D playing field. Bullying and bigotry must step aside!

NGC 2359 in Canis Major

The degree falls upon two fixed stars which include Delta Monoceros in Monoceros the Unicorn and Muliphein in the neck of Canis Major the Greater Dog. Monoceros is the unicorn which was once an apothecary symbol as it was to represent the horn as a panacea for all illness.

The closest representations believed to be these mythical creatures are the rhinoceros and narwhal. Most likely an Asian rhinocerosunicornis to be exact or maybe even the elasmotherium.

Derivatives of monos from Greek include monad, monastery, and monk for their references to alone or single. Other references may include Amalthea the she-goat nourishing baby Jupiter through the horn of plenty or cornucopia. British slang depicts the word rhino with money and the origin is the expression “paying through the nose.”

The rhinoceros is a solitary creature both male/female establishing their own territory where they were in the past displayed as pious symbols of those who renounce the world loving to dwell alone removed from their kind.

It is here that we find concepts even of monasticism and the Pythagorean Monad as a term for God as the totality of all beings referencing the source as one without division which brings forth the belief in monotheism.

Unfortunately I’m unable to find much information on the other fixed star at present. Historically it was known as Wezen or Hadar through its Arabic form. Wezen came to us via Al Wazn meaning weight. Kabbalists associated this with the Hebrew letter Tzaddi and the tarot trump The Moon.

You’ll figure it out whenever you’re meant to. As I’ve said I’ve been covering this for months now throughout 2021-2022 often finding myself back where I’ve started multiple times literally traveling in circles. The New Moon suggests we lie low, recharge our batteries, improve our mental health, and take in a well deserved Cosmic reboot.

Dust off your vision board and assess what you most want in your future. Your life is not just about your materialism, consumerism, and go go go. What you need most is emotional security, time for your ancestors/family, and stability beneath your feet to reach the stars.

Poor foundations and ignoring your intuition don’t allow for you to stand. Gain self moderation, grounding, and stop letting others make you feel caged. Have a fantastic and unreal New Moon! Best wishes! 🙏🏻🌠

Sign Spotlight Sundays: An Animal That Is Usually Given a Bad Reputation

“Shear up, darling. Everything will be alright.” – Unknown

I’m not sure why exactly, but this blog post made me want to bust out with Joan Jett today who I saw in concert a few years ago. It stems from the fact that today we’re continuing the zodiac with the Sheep which on the Asian (Chinese, Japanese, etc.) zodiac I happen to be an Earth Sheep which comes with some snarky puns about how rather ignorant or victimized they generally are.

Nonetheless that ignores what I am under any other zodiac as well. You know the term because it’s all over the internet as a meme; sheeple!

🎼🎸🎙️📀

Ewe might find the underlined hyperlink text to be helpful in changing at least some of your own misconceptions.

Those born in the years 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, and 2003 or the year of the Hitsuji/Sheep are in fact usually elegant, highly accomplished in the arts, and passionate about nature/environmentalism. They tend to exhibit deeply spiritual practices or beliefs while paying attention to rules/regulations which have been established by the society with which they’re found in.

More often than not this group is blessed with innate intelligence, artistic talents, and will fare well in business endeavors. They can display extremely combative demeanors when facing conflict. As the highly creative lot you will find this to be made up of your craftspeople who adore exquisite pieces that bring peace and harmony into their lives.

For myself being placed under the Earth element I am more optimistic and self reliant than other Sheep desiring to maintain my independence. Neither a spendthrift nor a miser I don’t deny myself while enjoying a life of work hard/play hard taking responsibilities seriously. If criticized you might find that I will display the traits of being overly defensive.

When we come across sheep as a totem or spirit animal we may find those who display the characteristics of remaining innocent and youthful in character valuing teamwork. A good phrase for their appearance in our life is to keep working diligently and to remain persistent. As a symbol of vigor the sheep wants you to recognize that within you is everything needed to overcome obstacles.

The best solution to anything troubling you is to adapt to your challenges while you work towards commanding respect from others. If you can improve your self esteem and boldly walk the path which others are too scared to tread you will find success. Simply keep your eyes fixed upon the prize with a relentless mindset to ensure that no failure or adversity can discourage you.

Utilize your natural tendency for remaining curious to ensure that you continue learning new things. This is a great way to remain open to the many opportunities that can cross your path during your life’s adventures. Just remember that you should acknowledge the greatness that lies within you. Not all sheep are lead easily to the slaughter house as sacrificial martyrs.

This sign falls under Dainichi Nyorai also referred to as the Cosmic Buddha. Sanskrit idenfies Dainichi as Mahāvairocana Tathaga. Esoteric or Vajrayāna tantric Buddhism widely practiced in Tibet believes that Dainichi the Great Sun is to be worshiped as the supreme primordial solar Buddha as well as the central figure of the Five Wisdom Buddhas.

The term Nyorai means thus come one utilized as an epithet for enlightened Buddhas that occupy the highest rank in the Japanese Buddhist pantheon. Therefore in Japan’s esoteric traditions Dainchi is the most important of all the myriad Buddha.

Dainichi is said to be everywhere and everything same as the air we breathe making all other Buddha and divine beings considered as emanations of Dainichi Nyorai.

Mahāvairocana:

Yudono-san is featured below due to it’s connection with being home to Dainichi Nyorai. You will find some wonderful videos enclosed within their elaboration on these topics.

Age Harmonic Chart for Asteroid Lamb

I thought today we could quickly look at where Asteroid Lamb (16089) is within my Age Harmonic chart presently just to get a feel for it’s influence in my life right now. This asteroid was discovered in October of 1999 exactly two years after I graduated high school named for William Lamb who mentored a finalist in the 2003 Intel Science Talent Search which was a competition for high school seniors.

We can locate Asteroid Lamb in a popular location of my 9th House of Sagittarius at 28° nearing the Anaretic Degree where we must master this house before we move onto the next. The only aspect is that we find Lamb sesquiquadrate Saturn which embodies the energies of remembering that while Jupiter is our greater benefic we should not become lazy, sloppy, or neglectful of details.

In the 9th House before we can progress to the 10th House we must grow in understanding of ourselves, the world, and diverse cultures through communication, writing, divination, and dream analysis. This will propel us towards success in the 10th House of social status showing how high we can rise in life.

“Where do sheep get their wool cut? At the baa-baa.” – Unknown

This degree knows that anything appearing to be closed, finished, or limited can be reopened up and extended. Our belief in limits reinforces those limits, and if we let go of that belief we find an abundance that is endless. Lack of confidence in self can stand in the way of this process, but if we focus on the good we are attempting to do the confidence magically appears.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A witch’s ritual dagger.” The ritual dagger is a weapon whose purpose is to cut away negative thoughts, or ones that are no longer of use, essentially thoughts which limit one in unnecessary ways. It may also be used to sever oppressive connections and clear the aura.

When such ties are cut we are free to experience the open and limitless quality of the Universe that allows, for instance, one to channel new music. Work with guardian angel Imamiah and daimon Allocer.

Daimon Allocer is connected with the Eight of Pentacles, Venus, Thyme, and Virgo. This daimon will appeal towards those who strongly desire to work with the arts. Allocer is great for when you need to clear your mind and helping one get in contact with their inspirational muse.

Of course this kind of makes for an unintentional pun when you look at the fixed star for this degree which happens to be named acumen given that this describes quickness of perception with the faculty of proper discrimination.

You will find this degree sits within the star cluster above the stinger of Scorpius the Scorpion in Aculeus/Acumen. There is a connection through Hebrew here to Chokmah meaning intelligence, skill, and mental acuity.

It’s worth considering Psalm 111:10 in this regard. However, after yesterday’s blog post my research into this topic led me to a rather unplanned online destination altogether that I did not expect to read from.

NGC 6302 in Scorpius

This journey even brought me to a PDF copy of the Sepher Ha-Bahir which I’ve never read today while composing this entry. How is that even possible? Do you know how difficult it was years ago to find a copy in a Christian store of the Apocrypha just to get my hands on my favorite book; Judith!

I found the only copy available in hard copy after much scouring. It is absolutely hands down one of my favorite stories, and also why I’ve got the Hannukah theme on my wealth altar with the dreidels that spell “a great miracle happened here.”

I’d link to the blog post with the photos, but I got too many pingbacks to that entry already! Plus search engines hate me for my link shares as that is bad online AI etiquette. And I already am likely on the naughty list since I recently fought with Google over my business listing.

Work with Azurite for this degree expressing the unity of mind, body, and spirit which restores health and well being by remaining fresh, energetic, and constructive. The focus at this time should be gentle, kind, and there for the help/support of another. Your affirmation reads I promote harmony, balance, and inner peace in my life.

I hope everyone enjoys their sublime Sunday. I think I may take a self care day tomorrow and refrain from blogging as it’s also my day off from my part time cosmetology job. I feel as if it would actually benefit me to allow myself a well deserved break.

The garden is quite unhappy due to the drought and triple digit weather. I’ve also been in a nearly month long neuropathic pain flare so I’ve been less able to properly care for the plants. We did cut several sunflowers today to allow them to dry out and harvest the seeds.

I did not succeed this year at carrots, but that is alright. We have another harvest of beans and there are at least 21 roma tomatoes on the vines some turning red.

The sweet potatoes look to be doing well, but I will need to get back out there soon to fertilize them again I believe. My pain body has been keeping me very unmotivated and ultimately just barely able to get through each day.

It’s been a terrible struggle the last month to accomplish my daily tasks honestly the way I have radiated with chronic pain and refused to show it to others except family. I believe we may receive some rain over the next day or so. I’d be grateful, but I also expect some of the wildflowers to be damaged again. We have no gutters on the covered porch.

The sweet potatoes are growing what can only be called vines!
Sunflowers looking lively!
Sunflowers ready to be harvested for seeds after the many bees in the garden have finished pollinating them.
I really will have to brush up on growing better carrots I think. Several of them were still quite small and we did not keep them. I also noticed a lot of seeds did not take. This year some of our seeds were not as bountiful or healthy.

Win some lose some. We’ve done quite well in some areas and had more struggles in others. I’m thankful we’ve made it to July though with the Texas heat and virtually no rain for months I believe now.

Be well and many blessings! And yes, I did find my typographical error. 😊💝

Self Examination Saturdays: The Final Frontier via Starchik and Enterprise

“I thought about putting an observatory in my house, but the cost was astronomical.” – Anonymous

Well while I am short on Tribbles tonight and thankfully I’ve not encountered the Borg at present we will be charting for some fun Asteroids Starchik and Enterprise tonight. Hopefully you will get the theme I’m going for.

Please enjoy the underlined hyperlink text which will transport you through the wormholes of cyberspace.

📡☄️👽👩🏻‍🚀

I’ve used the Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha chart again today to flesh out this blog post. Something I’ve learned recently with this chart is that the duads deal with the Ages/Aeons as well which run 2000 to 2160 years long.

This then can be compiled with the decans. For example, the Age/Aeon of Pisces began with a Pisces duad (running 166-180 years long) while in a Pisces decan (running 666-720 years long) ending with an Aries duad and Cancer decan.

This could add some very interesting thought experiments to utilizing these astrological charts.

Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha Chart for Asteroid Starchik and Enterprise

Asteroid Starchik lies within the main asteroid belt discovered in 1984 near Christmas (December 23rd) while Asteroid Enterprise orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, but it does have an interesting size being that it is kilometers cubed or 3 x 3 x 3.

We can see for my chart that Asteroid Starchik (32770) is placed within the 11th House of Aquarius at 22° semisextile Mars and square Pluto as well as Chiron. Asteroid Enterprise (9777) is within the 9th House of Sagittarius at 4° quincux Venus.

The 11th House is focused upon the intellectual ties and powers of community where it is important to help those who are less fortunate then us. This house is also about humanitarianism and social improvement. In keeping with that theme our 9th House is where we search for meaning by exploring our world grasping everything that is available to us.

You can see that we’ve already covered the degree for Asteroid Enterprise, but on an entirely different level or previous blog post. So I’m going to spice that degree up with a little bit of a different spin today rather than make it exceptionally boring for you to see it again so soon!

Let’s begin looking into Asteroid Starchik’s energies shall we. We can’t stand repeated delays or frustrations so we suffer with anger when faced with obstacles. The last time we saw some of these energies was between 1931 and 1934 when there was a phase of rapid metamorphosis between Germany and Italy.

Nationalistic tendencies and elitist attitudes were elevated into social direction while being manipulated by dictatorial groupings making attempts to seize power and benefit the state through new political concepts.

This historical period displayed ruthless violence and force to create global economic instability which caused radical as well as revolutionary political agitators or agent provocateurs to gain power by feeding upon exploited energies or vibrations that desired a new society to be birthed into existence on the 3D.

The underlying motives/intentions of these groups were of a mixed majority that led to both fascist as well as Nazi ideologies that spread throughout our individual as well as collective consciousness emotionally manipulating the mass public akin to a full global magic ritual.

These ideologies were allowed to gain traction due to the apathy and passivity of those too insecure or unable to have any influence even if they disagreed with the dominating groups in power.

The unconscious and subconscious of individual as well as collective humanity overrode the intellectual idealist mind leading to sadistic dismissal of those deemed as inferior races where freedom was ignored by the might of one’s oppressor in the name of social change.

I’m sadly reminded as I’ve said of middle and high school focus upon the histories of the Stalin/Hitler regimes as well as the Holodomor. Also a song from Japan that espoused and celebrated what would become known as a future hoped for 4th Reich that I heard while exploring their language, culture, and artistic talents.

As I’ve stated family has Ashkenazi Jewish as well as an assortment of Anglo Saxon roots with a touch of Ethiopian Jewish and Middle Eastern DNA having come here in the 1800s to the United States from Germany/Denmark for my biological maternal and paternal family.

I also inherited my great grandmother’s high school yearbook who survived the Great Depression when my WW II naval veteran maternal grandfather passed; she graduated 3 years before the economy went bust in that era.

You can deny what happened because I’m no naive person with the world wide web, but then I guess that makes all those people that came to my school to speak liars and scoundrels although I’m not sure what they hoped to gain. How do we know what is truth in our ever revisionist his or her story?

After all who is in charge of writing, preserving, and passing it on. You’re the one who has to decide what to believe. That includes believing in the denial of certain things I won’t mention here because I expect you to know what I am eluding to. If you don’t my apologies.

A Brief History Lesson:

The power of this degree is its understanding of how limitations can be changed gradually. To effect this change requires an understanding of the nature of those limitations and an intuitive sense of how to approach them, where their weaknesses are, and how to dialog with any system.

Here is the master negotiator who respects the integrity of whatever they are working with as well as who can achieve far reaching results by acknowledging what is and and then working with it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman making lace.” Here we find patience as well as the ability to concentrate and to perceive the overall patterns of whatever we are dealing with. This degree is adept at carrying out delicate procedures and of keeping all the strands of its motives and needs straight.

It is one who brings people and situations together in an attempt to produce something harmonious and beautiful; a degree of great refinement. Work with guardian angel Lehahiah and daimon Furfur.

Daimon Furfur is tied to the Eight of Cups, Mars, Tobacco, and Pisces. This daimon initiates one into the depths of understanding our conscious mind through the workings of our unconscious and subconscious by employing self introspection into our lives.

The tobacco spoken of is nicotiana, and I’m not going to advocate as to if one should be growing it in their garden (simply sharing what I’ve located).

Furfur is an ideal daimon to work with for forging relationships especially those where one can espouse superlative knowledge. You can look to new revelations of hidden knowledge in areas of interest.

This particular degree sits upon the fixed star Beta Grus in Grus the Crane. Cranes being known for elaborate courtship performances spend much time preening their feathers or on the other hand camouflaging themselves by painting their bodies with mud.

The Latin word grus and the English word crane are taken from Middle English and German via krone, however, the Greek and Indo European base gere is defined as uttering a hoarse cry.

A crane can also describe a machine which raises weights, and it is here that we get the word mechane originating in geranos as crane or krade as branch. Mechane derives from the Indo European root magh connected to magus and the Magha lunar nakshatra I was born into through my natal Vedic astrology.

Magh is defined as to be able or to have power. We see this in the words mechanic, magic, and might. Persians ascribed this title to those who were members of their priestly caste.

When we look towards Asteroid Enterprise we find impetus for one to bring clarity to their interactions with others while correctly evaluating what they really want in life. This forms a better usage of one’s energy and vibration.

If we’ve been the victim of doing too much for others then it’s likely we’ll be taken advantage of in the long run developing resentful feelings of being used/abused. We should deploy our sense of humor to entertain our enemies in life without becoming offensive.

Sagittarius: Two arrows crossed and surrounded by zones of glistening white light.

Denotes one who has a tendency to pull in opposite directions. The struggle between the desires and willpower shall be constant and an act of hostility could be followed by deep remorse. It is a fight between the world of matter (materialism) and the world of spirit. There may be peculiar changes in life which are most unexpected that are likely to occur. It is a symbol of Wavering.

Still interested in learning about Kyudo try the following video as well. This degree works best with Grape Agate expressing a message of moving ever forward with distinctive style and determination while focusing upon being caring, trustworthy, and individualistic as one supports the best in others. The affirmation is I am an extraordinary individual.

I’ve seen this particular degree described also as the energies of one speaking morning and evening for several hours each day telling what they know to their audience while imagining questions coming from non-existent students answering them only for new questions to emerge leading off into other topics as well as other realms of knowledge.

The chart holder knows not the bounds or limits of their knowing or gnosis for as they speak they continue to learn more. The knowledge rises to the surface like water from a bottomless spring.

Centuries later the room where this has transpired has become a place that exists where students come to sit, bookless, and with their eyes closed capable of absorbing the reverberations which still could be felt faintly echoing from the walls which awakened in them other hidden springs.

I hope everyone has an imaginative Saturday. 🤩💗

Fun Quote Fridays: Individuality

“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” – Unknown

I have not done a post for Fun Quote Fridays in quite some time so I am squeezing one in this week, but normally I have no time between my part time cosmetology job to do so. Please follow the underlined hyperlink text to little hidden treasures I’ve chosen to share with you by clicking on them.

🗝️💎🚪

“I believe in individuality, that everybody is special, and it’s up to them to find that quality and let it live.”

  • Grace Jones

“You just have to do your own thing, no matter what anyone says. It’s your life.”

  • Ethan Embry

“Follow your own star!”

  • Dante Alighieri

“Never follow the crowd.”

  • Bernard Baruch

“The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.”

Individuation:

Individuality Arabic Part/Lot

Today I’m doing a brief look at the Arabic Part/Lot for Individuality using the formula Ascendant plus Sun minus Uranus which is placed within my 10th House of Cancer at 9° which is not surprising for me. The 10th House is where our professional activity, social status, and authority take center stage.

My Sun sign is placed here in Tropical or Western astrology as a Leo, however, this is a direct match to my Sidereal or Vedic chart which means I’m a visionary who loves a good challenge. This displays our strengths and weaknesses as well as what we desire to achieve in life. This is where we want to leave our mark on the world.

The chart holder finds what is good and useful in unexpected places wanting to help others and to be of service. Their way of doing this is often indirect and subtle. They communicate to others the truth that change is nothing to fear, that it is, in fact beautiful, and that nature offers us a myriad of energies to nurture our soul.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A skeleton playing a flute.” Presumably one is engaged in the process of making flower remedies. There is a set of orchid remedies that are made in just this way. By collecting the dew off the orchids and using that in the remedy.

The skeleton is, on one level, the spirit of the sign Capricorn, which rules the bones of the body. Capricorn’s verb is “I use,” and Capricorn has to do with finding ways to make use of all which is around it. This degree is about finding the most efficient ways of using anything for the purpose of nurturing.

Of course on another level the skeleton is death, but here rather than being a force to fear it offers beautiful music reminding us that death is what allows us to live, grow, and flourish.

Knowing that death is only a part of the cyclic process of dying and being reborn rather than the permanent end of all things we see through the illusion of death. We can then enjoy the beautiful music it makes with life. Work with guardian angel Yeratel and daimon Ronove.

Daimon Ronove connects us to the Ten of Wands, Moon, Cinnamon, and Sagittarius. Call upon this daimon when you need others to assist with helping people to see things in life from your perspective. Ronove is multi-lingual and will teach one the arts, rhetoric, and how to reconcile disputes.

If you’ve been the victim of undesirable outcomes this daimon will help changes manifest in your life especially regarding academia, industry, and other aspects of your life.

A great crystal to work with for this degree is the Snowflake Obsidian with the focus upon the message of having no fear of the unknown which bestows the freedom of new dimensions opening up to you. The affirmation is I am expressive, unforgettable, and delightful.

NGC 2392 in Gemini

This degree sits on the fixed stars Alhena in the left foot of Pollux in Gemini and Mebsuta in the right knee of Castor in Gemini. Alhena is taken from the Arabic Al Maisan meaning the Proudly Marching One. Kabbalists associate it with the Hebrew letter Qoph and the tarot trump The Sun.

Mebsuta is taken from the Arabic Al Mabsutat meaning the Outstretched via its marking the extended paw of the early Arabic Lion. The early Arabic Asad extended over a third of the heavens as a Lion encompassing Arcturus, Spica, Regulus, the heads of Gemini, Corvus, and Canis Minor. Kabbalists associate it also with the Hebrew letter Qoph and the tarot trump The Sun.

May your Friday be inspired! Best wishes! 🤗💕

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Coffee with a Bit of Fruitful Parfait

“When the AC circuits are hit by a DC lightning bolt, it is called a current affair.” – Anonymous

What did we find in our coffee reading today? Well, it looks like a rune with a memo for us to decode. Hopefully the underlined hyperlink text will also be helpful.

☕🌩️🍨

Today I pulled the Thurisaz rune which offers a symbolic gateway towards work which is done internally as well as externally in the frontiers between heaven and Earth. When we arrive at this place we should recognize our readiness to contact the numinous Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. Thurisaz asks that we practice non-action.

We are to neither approach nor pass through the gateway without first contemplating upon if we are being confronted with a clear reflection of what is hidden within ourselves. Are the actions of self and other coming from right human action? This is a time for deep transformation.

Thurisaz asks that we visualize ourselves standing before the gateway atop a hill with our entire life laid out behind us. Before we can step through this gateway pause and review the past learning, joys, sorrows, and victories. Bless it all, release it all, and reclaim your power. Now you may step through.

If our actions come from hasty impulses we should always stop to check in with ourselves and examine our attitude. You must reconsider the old before you can integrate the new.

If you would like another adaptation of this rune please visit the following website.

“Desserts are the fairytales in the kitchen.” – Anonymous

Thurisaz can be associated with Thor and a myriad of other thunder deities; I don’t personally ascribe Loki to this rune.

Have an outshining Thursday! Short, sweet, and simple today! ✨😊✨

🪶🦦🍃🐾

Thankful for small achievements. I managed to actually get my bedroom cleaned thoroughly today since I had a lot of dust on my wealth altar, computer desk, and such as well as some laundry. Everything feels better at least in that regard since I use the witch hazel in there to dust because my only other cleaning option has peppermint oil which is harder to air out if it becomes too aggressive an odor.

I was feeling great until I encountered the obstacle that led to me putting a little too much weight into my left foot. Now I’m feeling the burn again of aches and pains. It was fun while it lasted because I learned the kitchen entrance way has the perfect set up for standing push ups today. The pain has been on/off again today honestly!

I’ve managed well otherwise, but I had hoped today would mean my pain flares were lessening. Maybe I was a little too hopeful, but can you blame me. In fact this foot has gotten so cranky that to keep it from hurting most nights I’m sleeping on my stomach or back in Tree pose to keep it at a realtive 90° angle to prevent my plantar fasciitis from flaring in an inherited California King oak tree bed; totally normal.

I may very well be a Holly on the Celtic calendar like mom, but… I mean I’ve started sleeping to DNA repair and anti inflammatory frequency entrainment music to see if it will help.

Thankfully my neck has not been upset since my head is often turned left or right. Night splints won’t work. Compression socks or anything too tight causes me neuropathy, muscle spasms (the last was Hell on Earth), and makes my Achilles burn. I wake up wanting to curse obscenities if I do that and forget it during the day. Kinesthetic tape is fine.

Today I thought we could have some fun with investigating animal totems. I’ve been given the following three as those I am presently working with while going through my Reiki attunement process/education in reaching Master level.

I’ve additionally performed a Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha chart similar to yesterday for the fixed star Algorab which is a traditionally Arabic word (Al-ghuraab) which means the Crow within the Corvus Constellation as these hold significance to those born in Magha lunar mansion.

The nature of this fixed star is the energies of Mars and Saturn which can assist one with driving away negative energies and give protection from the malice of others. It has been associated with Black Onyx and the right kidney within the human body. This also reminds me of my blog post on Libra while it’s notable that Corvus actually in the Hebrew Mazzaroth is associated to the Leo Sun sign (my Tropical placement and Vedic lunar mansion).

The Antennae Galaxies in Corvus Constellation

The Chinese see this fixed star as the Chariot or celestial carriage transporting tributes from foreign lands to the Emperor signifying an accumulation of wealth while presiding over travel.

There is a PDF I found explaining this with the Bible, but I’m going to forewarn and forearm my blog readers that I do not really belong to any church. I may have become fully Catholic in my 20s and have the maternal/paternal DNA of an Ashkenazi Jew from Europe particularly Germany and Denmark, but I’m not really a dogmatist or holding some radically rigid belief system because I’ve grown beyond exoteric practices.

I do me and you do you! Esotericism is not what most church pews teach, and I get testy with fundamentalism now.

Blue Jay:

Encourages me to be a little sassy each day! If there’s something I’ve been wanting I am supposed to politely ask for it. If there’s any issues which need confrontation I am not to sweep it under the rug as Blue Jay will drag it back out into the open to be addressed. Because Blue Jays will eat the young of other birds we are told to be direct without operating from a destructive intent.

Otter:

Otter happens to be one of the most playful feminine energies on Earth swimming over into my space to bring a message of joyful play rather than competitive play. If life has been difficult or I find my challenges overwhelming I have been encouraged to relax rather than panic. Otter is here to remind me that play is just as important as work especially the kind I loved as a child. Hopscotch was suggested for me.

The Crow:

Crow is always on the alert for trouble with their loud caws that warn each other of impending danger. Very little escapes their keen vision and many cultures associate Crow with being the keeper of knowledge. Crow has flapped his way into my life to bring a message of watchfulness. Build your nest high enough to really understand what’s going on around you is the advice I’ve been given.

Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha Chart for Algorab

Algorab is in a rather ironic place being that it’s the 1st House of Aries at 14° in this style chart given what they are meant to teach us about ourselves. Opposed to my Sun, trine Neptune, and biquintile Chiron we can see certain traits play out here. The 1st House is for self improvement as well as displays one’s inner/outer image reflecting our personality, character, manners, and temperament.

We don’t make rash decisions rather we slow down to assess all situations. This is especially true in healing or channeling our emotions. To access our inner potential we feel drawn to engage in creative, artistic, spiritual, and charitable activities. We tend to not follow linear time enjoying instead a maverick’s path of healer, astrologer, and self realization.

When life becomes too confining to the chart holder they push against it until they experience a breakthrough. One will not let anything thwart their growth. This molting they do is quite automatic and one will only cause severe suffering to themselves if they resist it. Growth is exhilarating especially when one supports themselves in the process of it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An apple tree with many rotten apples on the ground around it.” The rotten apples and the snake’s dead skin are what has been cast off. The skin is a remnant of the growth and expansion of wisdom which will always be generating new skins as it evolves.

The rotten apples manifest the luxurious abundance of the creative urge as it relentlessly casts its seeds of inspiration into the physical world. Work with guardian angel Mebahel and daimon Leraje.

Daimon Leraje represents the Six of Wands, Moon, Leo, and Plantain. This daimon empowers ritual magic bringing aid to love spells while guiding one in healing/medicine as well as assisting with reconciliation spells. Leraje imparts one with the wisdom to handle conflicts.

Garden updates include larger roma tomatoes which are still green, a few more zinnias and sunflowers, we’re still producing some beans which need to be cut although I’m not sure when I’m getting out there yet although I need to check the carrots, and we have a lot of various bees.

I’m honestly not outside much in the hotter afternoons so I’ve stopped photographing butterflies the way I did about 5-6 years ago. Oh, the front garden crepe myrtles are unhappy and the bark is peeling, however, one of the back one’s is very happy. Lettuce is going to seed!

That’s two bees for the price of one please. Wings and stripes! And I think that might be another baby preying mantis?! It’s difficult to see in the central region, but that little greeny is what I’m “I Spying.”
Solar flowers galore which I got to say someone today mentioned that I have not one, but two green thumbs after seeing the garden.
We still have some beans being produced on the vines, but I’ve not been able to get to cutting them. We gave several away and still have a bag in the refrigerator! It’s like death by green, yellow, and purple beans out here even if this is not the best image capture of the event!
Color, but it seems to often be of the same variety and vivid.
I’m not complaining; promise!
Lettuce heading off to seed…
I really need to check the carrots again to see if they’re ready to harvest, but the peanut planted by the neighborhood squirrel in the same bed and the wildflowers has grown huge. I do wish either A) my neighbor would stop feeding the squirrels or B) they would stop planting in my beds!
Here is some borage!
Let’s not forget the roma tomatoes on the vines.
Or the sweet potatoes!

May you have a provocative and intriguing Tuesday! 💬🌌

PS: Google has responded that they should be removing the “flag” on my business listing. I’m not sure who sent in that I had harmful downloads, links, or was fraudulent, but I do hope the Universe teaches them a nice lesson in karma!

I still believe doing that with no grounds or basis is defamation, slander, or libel of a person’s character and business. As I said before my astrology business is legal, and I’m no criminal. I pass background checks. If you have a question at the very least use the contact form or email on my Terms of Service & FAQ. Going around bad mouthing anyone with no grounds is just childish and improper.

Manifestation Mondays: The Royal Stars Debated

“Sometimes you have to stand alone to prove that you can still stand.” – Anonymous

Solving this little Choose Your Own Adventure novel means you will have to make some pathwork choices by utilizing the underlined hyperlink text. That means this is interactive non-fiction that I’m composing although many will class it as fiction I’m sure.

But as a fan of visual novels and the above book series growing up I aim to make my composition unusual as my creative writing college professor noted when I published fanfiction years ago. I’d like for you to see, learn, and grow from the perhaps not always wise choices I’ve made in my adventures.

🧙‍♂️🧭🧙‍♀️

Remember what I said yesterday about how I’ve learned to walk now three times, and I’m just tired. Well surgery meant I acquired not just the aid of crutches or a knee scooter, but I was walking with a cane. Ironically I’m not sure this is much different than Regulus moving to Virgo (I know I pointed blog readers here months ago), the Yod/Yad, and the Hermit tarot card.

Imagine the street behind your house is Lionheart with Iris nearby also as I previously noted in reference to Mercurial energies (Virgo exalts Mercury). Symbolism seems mildly familiar albeit I’ve put my ring and reiki bracelet on my dominant left not right hand. My left side has become not as strong as my right being that it is where all my injuries/weaknesses lie.

Is it not ironic that some when I went on Twitter said this form of astrology that I perform is too “controversial/radical” for them to accept. Ketu ruled people are usually thinking outside of the box! I left Twitter for reasons which I blogged about early in 2022 because I was rather disgusted with the platform and people on it.

I hardly even use social media, but I’ve created content and designed websites since the late 90s knowing how to code. I’ve seen much change with the technocracy becoming vocal here about how artificial intelligence is something many don’t realize is meant to pull wool over their eyes. Context and word smithery matters as it is neural linguistic programming! A sort of hypnotism, mesmerism, and such that keeps the unaware spellbound in the grasp of predators indoctrinating groupthink.

The tarot cards are all infinitely rich with various symbols, but the Wheel of Fortune as I began to notice after writing yesterday stuck out to me in my studies as to their esoteric value. We see pictured on the card representations of Regulus (Leo), Fomalhaut (Aquarius), Antares (Scorpio), and Aldebaran (Taurus).

They form the Fixed Cross, but the concept of precession of the equinoxes postulates a move to the Mutable Cross. If you’re confused as to why so much of this is of interest to me I think it’s some sort of inherited condition; yes it’s meant to sound peculiar.

Still a bit concerned about this ankle and if the spasm was a sprain/strain. Reading information online confirms I’ve probably overused my muscles/ligaments again. So I’m doing moderate therapy exercises, using my kinesthetic tape, and practicing good old fashioned RICE. I’m also walking slower than normal which is frustrating primarily to me.

I have a pretty good feeling this ankle never healed correctly or this is the degenerative nature of the many conditions wrong with me like the osteoarthritis weakening the joints. Post foot fracture we were concerned I’d need surgery to remove a cyst that grew in my ankle bones filled with fluid, but thankfully that spontaneously went away.

It could have led to another secondary fracture in my heel. I could say it sucks to be me, but I know that’s my negativity coming through loud and clear. Or rather we retain the memories sometimes of that which felt traumatic to us. The pain though is definitely not making me feel optimistic.

These stars have been characterized in different fashions from the Archangels to the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse:

  • Regulus as the heart of the lion or star of kings in Leo was said to be the healing Archangel Raphael and Doctor of Medicine who is presently guarding the Northern Quarter (Cancer, Leo, and Virgo; Summer Solstice).
  • Fomalhaut as the mouth of the Southern Fish in Pisces was said to be the revelatory Archangel Gabriel or the Strength of God who is presently guarding the Southern Quarter (Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces; Winter Solstice).
  • Antares as wisdom keeping or inspiring Archangel Uriel who is presently guarding the Western Quarter (Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius: Autumnal Equinox).
  • Aldebaran as the right eye of Taurus or the following Archangel Michael who is presently guarding the Eastern Quarter (Aries, Taurus, and Gemini; Vernal Equinox).
“If you were happy every day of your life, you wouldn’t be a human being. You’d be a game show host.” – Anonymous

Personally I wanted to read the job related Reiki healing articles, but that may or may not even appeal to my audience so I’m trying to not harass them. In days of the past these stars were given a high position/ranking due to their position along the four cardinal points of the Cardinal Cross.

Long before Judaeo Christianity was accepted as a dominant religion their representation was seen as important when aspecting any sensitive points within an astrology chart. They bestowed favorable outcomes on the chart holder.

I’m weird though because I’ve read my great grandmother’s Bible that I inherited cover to cover and because I did so before bed sleeping with it the binding fell off. I did not do the same with my copy of the Tao or the Quran.

Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha Chart for Regulus, Fomalhaut, Aldebaran, and Antares

I thought today would be a good day to explore a little esoteric astrology on these topics and maybe chart them presently, but I might do a Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha chart to locate the karmic DNA of the last seven generations. This chart won’t display the current precessed positions if we’re processing that which interprets what is essentially the twelfth parts.

These Dwads are powerful descriptions of interest that display the character of any person/event. What it serves is to show us where we have karmic debts, blessings, or fated connections. We want to see what talents and natural inclinations are possessed. This is the side of our true colors.

We will find Regulus in the 7th House of Libra at 1° semisextile Moon, square Venus and Uranus, and trine Pluto retrograde. Fomalhaut in the 2nd House of Taurus at 19° biquintile Sun, trine Mercury, semisquare Venus, sextile Jupiter, and opposition Chiron.

Aldebaran in the 8th House Scorpio at 0° conjunct Moon and trine Jupiter and Uranus. Antares in the 2nd House of Taurus at 0° opposition Moon and semisquare Jupiter and Uranus retrograde.

I think it would be best to keep this simpler so we will be simply viewing the Chandra symbols today for clues while I dive in just a little again with pointing everyone to the zero point energies I’ve been researching.

My belief symbolism is all around each of us, but whether we’re paying attention is actually another story similar to my wealth altar, inherited bed, and the grey coverlet I bought then placed on the bed from what was called the Grace collection via the At Home store where I live.

For years I was doing everything intuitive and then later trying to comprehend what was happening in my life without others thinking I might be way too airy fairy woo woo and off my rocker. I mean I’ve been at this for over a decade now avidly studying, researching, and practicing esoterics just not publicly.

Let’s try to grasp the symbols for each fixed star and degree. Regulus is expanding on a previous blog post and as such we will simply refer back to that entry which I know I made reference to yesterday so clearly I’ve fixated on a specific association. Something to consider though is that metaphyiscally bread is a Universal/Cosmic substance which speaks to the omnipresent mind stuff we are capable of molding via the use of our thoughts.

This is why it’s important to be aware of our subconscious or unconscious as well as limiting beliefs or negative chatter as they both can shape our reality/manifestations. We acquire truth when we meditate which is simply continuous contemplative thought used to expand our consciousness and transform our mind, body, and soul/spirit.

The house Regulus sits within is one of partnerships of virtually any kind including business endeavors which is where we seek cooperation, balance, and harmony. Regulus at this degree allows for positive harmony between consciousness and instinctual, emotional, and habitual response patterns to life creating fewer conflicts between our emotions and the application of life purpose.

Lessons are learned with the end goal to not have to repeat them. We may struggle with feeling lonely/unloved, but if we pay attention to our reactions we can better channel them through creative and artistic pursuits.

There are times we present at this degree as the Devil’s advocate, individualistic, and desiring freedom from all social restrictions. Generally this degree excels at yoga, meditation, self discovery, and clairvoyance.

“Next time someone tells you cheerleading is easy, tell them to do your routine and then get back to you.” – Anonymous

Fomalhaut sits within the house of values, self esteem/worth, and what is often described as our overall feelings regarding our possessions or tangible assets. Aesthetic sensitivity leads to clever and ingenious outlets of creativity via breathing new life into dreary situations. We excel at anything which employs the use of our hands and voice.

Release of tension is necessary to more easily relax and go with the flow. Beauty manifests through our home life/appearance. Healing occurs when we correct our relationship to self by working to build better boundaries, learn that we are enough as we are, and ensure partners meet us halfway.

TAURUS 19

A crown turns into goat horns.

A remarkable instinct for the next lesson. Finding it, learning it, and drawing everything out of it that you can. Specialized in destiny activation and interested in nothing else. Purposively driven to take up karmic lessons all the way. Wildly given over to what is taken on. Working the territory as hard as you can. Making way for something new by wearing out the old. Assigned to tough situations yet knowing it is appropriate.

Super strong and especially tenacious and relentless. In deepest essence sacrificing yourself so that something can happen here that is going to take a lot of doing. And inside it all you are curiously resigned to whatever arises while not very concerned because long range results mean everything here. And a moment’s or a lifetime’s discomfort is a small price to pay when destiny is truly involved.

Oh, Krampus again! Good to know! 😂

Aldebaran is in one of those houses that focuses our interests upon an energetic disposition to change/disruption. This is the black sheep phase of life where we’re trying to remove the cycles we perpetuate of duality between love/hate, loyalty/repulsion, and such.

There is an unexpressed resentment that suffocates us and this will display via psychosomatic illness if we do not get a grip on our repressed anger/sadness by working it out through the Throat chakra. We desire greater justice, social equanimity, and a revolutionary change of human ideals. Chandra Symbols never utilize the zero degree therefore I usually look to the first degree for clues.

SCORPIO 1

A tunnel through a mountain.

When darkness comes you need more darkness if you’re ever going to find the light. As the struggle of Earth existence descends upon you it is you who must find a way to harness the power of that struggle to turn death into rebirth. But it is so pressurized and absolutely relentless a path to walk. Everything you meet reflects the same destiny dilemma.

For you are being pulled through the collective nightmare by an immense evolutionary force and that means feeling everything, experiencing all of it, and letting everything go. Those pulled in to such a radical track develop core perseverance magnificently and learn to be light while super heavy and to stay loose while bearing down in tight passages.

Eventually glorious things happen and you can emerge into a whole other reality knowing how purposeful every step has been, that all of it was necessary and redemptively built a character strength of a mighty fiber, as you knew it would.

Antares also in the same house as Fomalhaut asks us to be ourselves by remaining open mentally and within our heart space. If we appear cold, unfriendly, or distant it is because we suffer a subconscious and unconscious pattern of pushing others away that we have not fully removed from our consciousness.

When we release this blockage new forms of relating will open up to us. We suffer the expectation of others needing to be trustworthy and genuine valuing our experiences that push us to grow. Again we’ll look to the first degree of Taurus for some clues as there is no zero degree in this symbol system.

TAURUS 1

A red garnet ring. The garnets glow.

A passion for bearing ripe fruits. Feeling transported by an ongoing realization that you are in your own element, doing what you need to do, and subtly fired by an inner purpose that clarifies everything. The glow of your central intent warms you through. This quality of soul is simple and direct. It makes for a primal elemental presence.

One cannot grasp complex matters in this sphere. But you know what you need to know, and you’re on the beam so palpably that nothing much matters except being there. You distinctly charge the atmosphere with a pranic renewal, a source sustenance, and the whole idea is to make way for the universal life force to stream right in and bless with its all forgiving radiance.

May your Monday manifest wholistic rejuvenation. The garden on the other hand well I think it’s going to be spent before the fall. We’ve had too many triple digit days now, and I can’t keep up with the heat to save the plants. I cut an entire crop of basil in the back garden today as well as zinnias were removed due to drought.

I don’t deal well with losing my plants; it literally hurts somewhere to watch them suffer or to have to pull them when they are spent in the heat. I’m sure a co-worker will understand since she has called me a plant mother.

The hollyhock is about the same along with several flowers in the front garden. This year is more like the deadly desert in the movie Return to Oz. A movie I grew up with which yes I’m well aware of the occult symbolism as well as the rather racist mindset of the author some have pointed out as well as it’s populist themes.

There is much culturally that we don’t really want to admit to because we just want to enjoy a book, movie, music, etc., and we are confronted with some topics in life that we have to own because they are a part of our collective consciousness/shadow. 👥🔮

Answers to questions lie within the underlined hyperlink text jigsaw puzzle I’ve left for my blog readers in the hopes they can piece the message together, and maybe also help me make sense of my insane blog posts. Yes, that requires a few mouse clicks on those doorways into various portals and a little bit of reading or detective work.

💻🧩🕵️‍♀️📚

I wanted to compose this entry yesterday, but due to an extremely rough week I am doing this retroactive on Sunday because I needed to take a self care day. I’ve been having some significant problems with my entire left leg and foot post surgery with trying to manage my life between daily tasks/chores, gardening, and working a part time cosmetology job. I’m actually not sure I can keep up the garden in this heat this year on this foot/leg.

I tried pawning the chores on my step father, but I legitimately feel that I’ve been taking on way too much for my body to withstand. When muscle relaxers no longer work to alleviate the osteoarthritis or muscle tightness I know something is amiss.

From being told by podiatry that I essentially was born with clubfoot albeit not a severely deforming kind to the fractures in my heel and first two metatarsals, ankle ligament surgery, and the osteoarthritis within my ankle joints I’m not sure what my future for health is beyond coping with wishing my body were not making me feel eighty or ninety when I’m half that age over the last two years.

A person could get lost in my blog posts over the months and might think I’m always complaining or whining when these flares hit, but if I never explain how can anyone understand something you don’t physically see on the outside as I legitimately hide the pain if I’m not verbalizing to you that I’m in it. i won’t be crying or wincing in front of you usually and if I do moan in agony it’s only at home in front of family.

When I was a cashier post foot fracture on medical notice to have a chair at my register by physical therapy a customer called me lazy to my face for using my chair to relieve my chronic pain as I weaned back into weight bearing full time. And I had a thought enter my brain which was not verbalized that read “I hope when you step outside a bus hits you so you can feel what I feel inside of my body every day.”

And I realized how horrible I felt for that thought entering my mind simply because I was healthy before and now I’m forever changed by life’s experiences. I did not have to vocalize the thought to know something was very incorrect with that response! Nonetheless after all I’d been through being called lazy triggered me.

For two weeks in a row I’ve tried muscle relaxers to almost no avail as I wake up with spasms and tightness in my leg/ankle and osteoarthritis. Virtually every step and standing is met with some terrible pain and cement shoes is the term applied to this feeling.

Twenty to one I’ll be paying to see the podiatrist soon again. I’ve reverted to all my physical therapy exercises again including writing my alphabet upper/lowercase with my foot and rolling my foot on an iced water bottle or icing the swelling down from inflammation.

I just don’t want to deal with the uninsured medical bills right now. It always grates upon my nerves when I have to consider the costs. Then my fear kicks in too. Did I re-injure my ligament? Could I have blown out the surgery? Is anything torn again?

Combing through the asteroids on Astro.com I found two I wanted to use in my Vedic Age Harmonic chart today. I’m going to begin by discussing etymology of these two words before I give examples and lead into the astrology symbolism.

I’m glad that WordPress allows for me to play with time magic also as I can publish this blog post as if I’d managed it on Saturday since it was certainly in my mind despite the fact that I was exhausted physically, emotionally, and spiritually to be honest.

I truly felt like I could barely make it all week. In fact today ensued with me opening the front door to the house and screaming outside I was so stressed and irritated rather than break dishes the way I felt I might be heading. It helped a little just to do that for about five to ten seconds after dealing with a front load laundry washer that I frankly despise. I did not want to break mom’s dishes, but I was ready to punch a wall or something.

Compassion is taken from Middle English, Old French, and Ecclesiastical Latin compassio, compati, and compassus meaning sympathy, to suffer together with, and etymologically means deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with a wish to relieve it. Some do define it as pity.

Conscience on the other hand is taken from Middle English, Old French, and Latin conscientia, consciens, and conscire meaning knowledge within oneself, to be conscious of wrong, and etymologically means the moral sense of right/wrong through self awareness that affects one’s behavior/attitude.

I chose the following example because Amma matches my Magha lunar mansion through reading from Barbara Pijan’s website although I’ve spent countless blog posts learning about my nakshatra in terms of Ketu rulership with it’s chasing liberation, samadhi, and moksha as well as the fixed star Regulus and the arguments about precession of the equinoxes through Leo to Virgo.

The desperate need to even understand myself and my chart as an esotericist or Reiki Master level. I think though it makes sense given everything this article has pointed to or this one. We’re all trying to step into whatever position we’re supposed to embody. Some are struggling to know what this should even look like such as myself.

But in exploring this from an even wider than lens beyond the Judaeo Christian or Buddhist spheres I’ve studied I did also run across another set of online articles that gave me pause. Alright so are perspectives taken subjective or objective when we approach each of these respectively?

Believe me I know when guilt sets in because I’ve been learning or rather becoming more mindful of certain choices I’ve made in my past and how they are shaping my present and will challenge my future.

As stated before the Age Harmonic chart is ideal for me in determining by my age what exactly I’m now dealing with in life. Particularly given that from 40 to 45 it directs one to the auspicious/inauspicious habits we hold within our emotional/psychological nature. Four times ten reflects our 4th House which is the home life where our private yet vulnerable self lives holding the keys to our inner child.

You’re going to see here one’s need to belong, what helps them feel at home, their value system, and their subconscious patterns. To heal the inner child you need to approach healing through unlearning behaviors that no longer serve you.

Tropical this was an Aquarian placement or rather the Western zodiac so I was marching to the beat of my own drum contradicting family with a detachment to my parents placing emphasis on my intellectual development and desiring independence.

If we look though at my Sidereal or Vedic we find this was a Capricorn placement so I dealt with strong family tradition against a backdrop of disciplinarian parenting where troubles emerged as I subconsciously longed for independence, warmth, and love feeling I was not receiving these.

Does that ever resonate like someone hit me over the head! This is the problem with the logic of saying what happened at an early age is great if you don’t remember it. No, it’s really not. You still remember it because it’s buried in the subconscious or unconscious waiting to be healed and released. It’s all retained in there beneath the surface and you’re not paying attention long enough to realize it.

The Age Harmonic chart aims to fine tune the moral and ethical nature through an indication of which of the three Hindu deities and their wives we are working from (creator, preserver, or destroyer). I think Judaeo Christianity has worked long and hard to remove the Divine Feminine from one’s consciousness as has some other faiths. I say this because the Capricorn 4th House also speaks towards a patriarchal society one may be growing up in.

As I study my chart though I’m learning a lot more about myself which helps my growth while making myself an example to others displaying the benefits of such practices through these services.

Age Harmonic Chart for Asteroid Compassion and Conscience

So here we are looking at my chart seeing that Asteroid Compassion (8990) is in the 9th House of Sagittarius at 4° sesquiquadrate Venus and Mars. Asteroid Conscience is in the 5th House of Leo at 24° with no aspects whatsoever.

Your 9th House is encouraging you to think big and bold by taking advantage of international communication, higher education, and exploring your higher mind through philosophy, religion, and publishing. It’s also asking you to consider legal or academic matters within a traditionally Jupiter ruled house through Sagittarius.

This placement begins to look at where in life they or others are committing acts of excessive indulgence. It’s where individually as well as collectively trends emerge showing humanity is a spendthrift lacking self control. They need to develop an attitude of fairness, ethics, and harmony. This is also the placement for those who overextend themselves. It’s important that we don’t burn ourselves out by being overactive or hyperactive.

The 5th House holds a symbolic representation being ruled by the Sun and Leo of the patriarchy as a symbol of royalty. It’s a King’s horoscope zone in traditional parlance. Kings must find heirs to their throne therefore much time and training is put into children and teenagers ensuring one is fit to take over. It shows the area in our life where we rule which can be self expression, creativity, and our ability to educate, enlighten, or inspire others.

I’ve learned to walk three times; birth, post foot fractures, and post ankle ligament surgery. I’m tired of re-learning this! The other degree symbol reminds me of the Vedic astrologer who asked me how my fashion changed during Covid.

I remarked when I’m home I’m in pajamas or a random shirt paired with sports leggings and my hair in a bun as well as no makeup. When I’m in public I’m a lot more presentable rather than dressed down for comfort. If I’m home I frankly don’t care what others “think” of me.

It’s when I have to put on a show (Leo Sun sign in the Tropical zodiac with Cancer Sun sign in the Sidereal zodiac) that I may be a bit more concerned with “appearances” or “societal norms.” Summed up in public you don’t get to always see the real me because I’m conditioned that something is not appropriate in allowing that level of intimacy and/or afraid of being judged by it. I don’t think you’ll like what you see.

The Omega symbol describes these degrees as the following and here again is some interpretation to the meaning of daimon. It’s worth the read if you want to connect it with what I just explained above.

This degree has knowledge that must come out even if it isn’t acknowledged or accepted by others. There is an ability here to be impervious to the negative reactions and/or disinterest of others. As long as this degree focuses on what it needs to do and lets go of any apprehensions concerning the ramifications of its actions it can live true to itself.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young prince undressed to bathe in a pool.” The young man puts himself in a vulnerable position by taking away all the barriers between himself and nature. He then enters the water or the sacred womb of the mother to be refreshed, cleansed, and purified.

This degree is about seeking direct experience by divesting oneself of preconceptions, social conditionings, and by also letting go of assertiveness and agendas so as to have a full experience of what’s right there in front of one.

It’s not easy to give oneself completely over to the feminine. It requires a lot of macho courage and gutsiness. Work with guardian angel Seheiah and daimon Berith. Shockingly I’ve previously covered this degree through another lens altogether when I was coping with also podcasts that dealt with our current socio-political climes.

Daimon Berith corresponds with the Two of Pentacles, Venus, Capricorn, and Sandalwood. This daimon was of particular importance to alchemists in the transmutation of base metals to gold. This daimon helps those who help themselves.

If we hop over now as that was the degree for Asteroid Compassion we see a different message within Asteroid Conscience. The most difficult of situations can elicit from the chart holder a surprising resourcefulness. They have a tremendous ability to mutate.

If they give in to this it can be very exhilarating and ultimately fulfilling. If they struggle against it and rigidly try to hold on to what is no longer needed suffering will inevitably be the result.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Sunrise over Stonehenge.” Overcome by water one becomes what will thrive in water just as the denizens of England reacting to the cycles of time build Stonehenge which is in harmony with those cycles. The chart holder projects an aura of importance that is quiet and certain with a deep self assurance that comes from being in tune with the whole of life.

They are what they are in a simple way though many, varied, and complex are the roads you may travel. They are attuned to what endures and as they become increasingly at one with this they contact their true self at deeper and deeper levels. Work with guardian angel Mumiah and daimon Andromallus.

Daimon Andromallus is tied with the Ten of Cups, Mars, Dragon’s Blood, and Pisces. This daimon protects your home, family, vehicle, and business from theft. Many work with Andromallus to learn how to operate through life safely.

Usually Andromallus is worked with to right a wrong that was inflicted against one such as being robbed of something in one’s life. Some believe this daimon operates from some rather strong value systems. I’ve literally read that to work with Andromallus you best have your morals/ethics in check!

This degree actually also sits upon the fixed star Subra in the right knee of Leo the Lion. This fixed star takes it’s name from Subira meaning patience. Patience from Middle English, Old French, and Latin patientia, patiens, and patior means to suffer, endure, and wait. Kabbalists associate this fixed star with the Hebrew letter Kaph and the tarot trump Strength.

The Hebrew letter Kaph deals with a specific path on the Tree of Life in Kabbalah where we again see Jupiter here with some powerful symbolism. When I began my part time cosmetology job my Reiki chakra bracelet broke. I managed to collect all the pieces and place it upon my wealth altar, but I’ve not restrung the beads nor looked for a replacement.

I probably should as I wore it also on my left dominant arm with my ring. It had been worn daily for years and the fishing wire finally gave out. May your weeekend be nourishing! I’m trying my best to take it easy on my days off, but I know I still have to move and exercise while in this pain flare. 🍲🥄

 

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Wish Fulfillment Meets High Ambition

“She was a wild one; always stomping on eggshells that everyone else tip-toed on.” – Kaitlin Foster

Today’s positive tarot reading offers a bit of guidance through underlined hyperlink text to elaborate upon the meanings and messages being given at this current moment in time/space.

🕘☕👑💎

Today we pulled the Nine of Hearts (Cups) with the King of Diamonds (Pentacles). These two cards have some great energy to share with us. Let’s take a brief look at these cards while I share a few additional interpretations to give readers some options on what they wish to receive from the Universe/Cosmos today.

I pulled the first card on the top of the deck after shuffling, cutting, and shuffling the deck as well as the card at the bottom of the deck this time which I don’t routinely do.

The Nine of Hearts (Cups) speaks to living in the present now moment. We are becoming mindful to not miss opportunities which stare us squarely in the face unlocking long term success for positive change in our lives. As a representation of happiness and joy as well as incredibly positive luck following us we are promised favorable outcomes, but not without a customary warning.

Another way to view the Nine of Hearts (Cups) is the genie card. If you knew you could not fail what would you do with your life? This particular card suggests you do just that.

If we’re too focused upon the future we will miss what the Universe/Cosmos is presently putting on offer before us. Keep your eyes on the goal and don’t get distracted whatever it is that you’re seeking to achieve.

We are in the midst of emotional and physical transformations that require us to perceive reality in a new way. You have been given a symbol of deeply unconditional love which comes from a place/time that we would not expect.

This connection offers an awesome basis for relationships to develop and flourish, but you have a narrow window of opportunity to seize upon this. Someone is entering your life who seeks a deeper connection, but they still are unsure of your feelings.

Allow head and heart to work in unison going forward. Allow intuition to also guide your ambitions while guarding against being constrained by anxiety or analysis paralysis. Career wise this is one of the most positive signs for business and financial improvements.

You have a favorable destiny if you keep working cooperatively with the Universe/Cosmos and your spiritual guides to choose the correct higher life path/purpose by letting your inner light make decisions for you. If you’re struggling with confidence learn to forgive your mistakes and embrace your strengths.

This card shows up as you begin spotting blockages and cutting cords or unlocking your true potential. When combined with the King of Diamonds (Pentacles) you receive a representation of financial abundance, physical wealth, and well being. Receiving this card is a signification that you’re on the right track and it encourages your current course of action.

When we desire to manifest greater wealth in our life this card offers us the confidence to move forward. It indicates Divine Providence reassuring that good things are on their way. Material prosperity comes in multiple forms whether that is financial freedom, better health, or an improved overall welfare.

It’s vital to remember both of these cards are not total victory so stay the course and continue working hard. Obstacles and delays can still present themselves so be prepared to adapt.

Don’t ignore other areas of your life by only having professional goals. You may be receiving a new love opportunity from an area you’re not expecting. You might be offered relationships that place you with those who are on the same wavelength and you will be mirroring each other’s energy/vibrations.

Continue your communication and cooperation or diplomacy skills while working towards common goals at this time. This card combination is great in careers for persistence towards goal achievement as long as we don’t rest on our laurels. Just don’t forget to pay attention to other areas of your life.

Keep watching for further patterns or synchronistic events while acting from a place of integrity. At present the Universe/Cosmos is your cheerleader encouraging you to balance your physical and spiritual path progression. Now is a time to expect the unexpected.

The King of Diamonds (Pentacles) is symbolic of like attracts like encouraging us to remain grounded while being enterprising. It has been called the Midas touch card.
