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.

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.

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.

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. 😊💝
