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).

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. 👥🔮

Fun Quote Fridays: Liberty/Freedom

Solar Eclipse 2017 Wedding Ring

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

  • Charlotte Brontë

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

  • Coco Chanel

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”

  • Mahatma Gandhi

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.”

  • Abraham Lincoln

“The first duty of a man is to think for himself.”

  • Jose Marti

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

  • Henry David Thoreau

“I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery.”

  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau

The underlined hyperlink text brings up some questions for us to ponder; which one is sitting on my shoulder giving me advice exactly? 👼 or 😈?!

I decided upon this set of quotes when I began to notice the theme in my astrology chart surrounding “liberty/freedom” as I have been blogging. I see it in guardian angels I have researched, my ring, and when I slept to the audio of the Tibetan Book of the Dead or cited the following link recently in a blog post. Blogging seems to help me unravel my own hang ups or goals I am otherwise not entirely conscious of. Hopefully being an example will help others do the same as they will see some benefit to my astrological or spiritual musings as strange as they may appear.

I further saw this within my Vedic chart thanks to my natal nakshatra within Magha. My Ketu is Aquarian. Pitris represent our Divine ancestors also referred to as solar pranic energies who assist us on our journey from body to body. The purpose of this relationship is intended to remind us about our eternal connection to the continuity of life encouraging us to become more detached.

Pitris teach us about our cosmic spiritual essence which continues to live and travel through the cosmos even after the death of our body from life to life until it reaches final emancipation. Our Divine spark and Divine roots ask that we acknowledge our duties towards the material world which should be fulfilled with devotion and detachment. Our thoughts, actions, and words contribute to shaping the future.

Magha nakshatra inspires us to seek spiritual freedom from material bondages while honoring our roots and remaining responsible to the world that we come from. Moon in Magha desires for us to honor this sacred connection rather than try to be isolated from it which can make our ego too strong.

The ruling planet of Aquarius is also Saturn. Ketu and Saturn are friendly to one another. Saturn acts as significator of detachment from materialism while Ketu is associated with spiritual liberation. Those who are born with Ketu in Aquarius are quite erudite understanding the realities of life.

In honor of this blog post feel free to utilize your astrology software or Astro.com for a free extended chart to plot Goddess Libera in your natal, transit, and progression. Libera is asteroid 771.

For me this Goddess is placed in my natal 11th House Virgo 12°, transits my 8th House Gemini 8°, and progresses to my 12th House Libra 1°. I studied Goetia briefly before I put it down. Today I will add some information on the daimon associated with each degree for those who prefer this route. Mostly I was investigating the daimon for my birth when I learned my birth guardian angel was Nith-haiah. I complain about being solitary and unnoticed. Meanwhile I have Glasya Labolas with the 8 of Wands, Mercury, Sagittarius, and Rosemary. I read somewhere this daimon acts like you have a cloak or cap of invisibility and ensures you are not overly materialistic. So I have a Romulan Bird of Prey?! Exactly when did this happen; scratches her head. 🤯

Glasya Labolas can be invoked to ensure what you’re doing is kept secret making you “invisible.” This daimon will make you wise to what is really going on around you while ensuring your friends and enemies are unsuspecting. This daimon is ideal for execration/binding, but also keeps your projects secret from noisy coworkers or competitors.

The 11th House deals with one’s aspirations, everything that has to do with friends or people in authority, philosophy/religion, idealism, speculation, and understanding of other people. Often the 11th House focuses on organizations which are humanitarian based.

The 8th House rules death, occultism/magic, sexuality, inheritances, and that which we must let go of. This can be considered one of the best mentors to teach us about life and it’s meaning.

The 12th House holds the subconscious/unconscious, secrets, self knowledge/gnosis, and deals with seclusion. Loss, isolation, hospitals, prisons, hidden enemies, fear of death, illness, and self undoing are featured here. These collective realms of life include neighborhoods, organizations, and the world in general.

VIRGO 12

A dog sniffing a dead animal.

Searching for clues, you probe the straight line and the intricate curve, tapping the mind’s powers for intricate operations. Prone to find the pathological, the destructive, and the inverted, the bloodhound sleuth checking everything out everywhere. Curious, fascinated, alive with speculations, hunches, notions. Wanting to track something down, to get resolution. Needing to know, poking about in the dark. You possess remarkable senses and an almost purely telepathic mind, tremendously skilled and adroit. But you can get poisoned by skepticisms and by too heavy an exposure to the dark underbelly of things. Desperate to learn how to also accept and embrace all that is, unconditionally, to let go into rightfulness and goodness in the very thick of things being rotten and pervasively wrong.

This degree shows that one is acutely aware of the forces of entropy/decay. One grasps the reality where everything eventually winds down, loses energy, and falls apart. When you struggle against this inappropriately you actually wear yourself out with futility trying to remedy what needs to be let go of as well as allowed to disintegrate. This degree indicates that the insights one born on this degree has into what is going wrong can be invaluable and used as a basis to effect renewal/rejuvenation. Work with guardian angel Caliel. The associated daimon to work with is Bathin.

Bathin corresponds to the 10 of Pentacles, Venus, Virgo, and Mistletoe. What I have read online invoking Bathin before travel ensures a smoother journey. Kitchen witchery gets you further with Bathin than ceremony/ritual! With regards to travel Bathin is also helpful with astral projection. Kabbalah teaches that the true secrets of our cosmos are only revealed to those willing to enter the various elements of the astral planes of which the allegorical Tree of Life is supposed to symbolize. Buddhism teaches that this can be reached via meditation and self realization.

GEMINI 8

A chandelier which holds lit candles.

Creative self-hood lights up the world. The brightness lies in the realization of being all things, becoming all things. It is everywhere at once. Nothing is linear, nor consecutive. The spinning upon an axis of power. Joy lies in making the connections, in being a resource, in bringing the situation to what it can be. All is activated, mobilized. Your potential is actualized by being all-inclusive and keeping every side of life in your sights. Lit up from within, having a place to shine.

This degree gives forth light by which collective humanity can see what is around them. This luminous degree assists others in seeing their way forward while giving as much as it can to those in need. Finding within itself what is needed to serve the situation at hand this degree can often be surprised at what can come forth from the depths of self at the right moment when the need arises. Work with guardian angel Habuhiah and the daimon Belial.

Belial corresponds to 6 of Swords, Sun, Aquarius, and Mullein. The little bit I have read online this daimon influences how others view or perceive you. I have read for some this has included the creation of a new website, a better job with better paying clients, and new “spirit” friends; but there is a catch. It comes after your life is shaken up by a healthy dose of chaos. Belial has also been known by some to work with one’s finances particularly ensuring troublemakers pay you back if they owe you money (particularly banks or other institutions). This usually revolves around bank loans, alimony, etc.

This can also occur at the national level by disrupting malicious power structures.

I have likewise read Belial assists in freeing one from tyranny and oppression. If we consider the traditional Devil tarot card your chains of bondage are revealed to you and you are given the power to break them.

The three most practical applications of Belial’s powers are:

  • Free yourself from any form of bondage such as toxic relationships, dead end employment, and drug addiction.
  • Advance your career with recognition as an authority.
  • Defend yourself against political oppression and tyranny.

Interesting… Although now I have Sia stuck in my head also! Thanks Chandra Symbols for mentioning chandeliers.

LIBRA 1

A group of fat Italian ladies preparing bread.

Archetypal, universal, and diffuse allegiances, activities, and realms of experience. Becoming camouflaged perfectly by adopting a persona that is wondrously engaging and easily connected with. Putting it on a bit heavy, thick grease paint. You exult in getting away with seeming to be the world’s most anonymous person, the disguise can stick to the face. Overt consciousness awash in mass identification, at times you are able to penetrate through and find open possibilities, but you are primarily engrossed in the outer. And alive to the advertised sensations of what it is like to be popular, well-received, and simply welcome wherever you go as part of the mix, and no problem at all.

This degree has the ability to find the easiest most direct ways of relating to the world around it as well as with other people. Here one wants everyone to feel nourished, included, and to have a good time. One mixes so very well with all other types of energies and degrees that they function as a kind of lubricant that makes everything run more smoothly through their ease of connecting with what is inviting. This degree imbues one with a simple and elusive beauty which can mutate into what will best serve the purpose of enhancing interactions with others. Work with guardian angel Aniel and daimon Phenex.

Daimon Phenex corresponds with the 2 of Wands, Moon, Aries, and Roses. Phenex is ideal for work with creative muses. Invoke Phenex during fire baptisms and rebirth rituals including creative path working. He’s described as motivational; some say he lights a fire under your bum to get you moving (out with the old/in with the new)!

Is Phenex at all related to phoenix?!
