Wisdom Wednesdays: Sunny Side Up Anyone?

“Bunny, I’m home.” – Unknown

I seriously contemplated waiting until Saturday evening or Sunday to publish anything on the Full Harvest Moon, but then realized I want to take some time off perhaps those days.

I feel really overworked at present like I could use a temporary hiatus with trying to compose in an effort to keep this little writing project of mine going or generating interest/feedback towards my astrology business.

This autumn we’re doing the bunny hop backwards in time folks via the underlined hyperlink text.

🐇🌕🌓🌑🐇

If we were to look back just a short while ago we would see that we were on a rather intriguing lunar phase which shall be followed up on September 10, 2022 by a Full Harvest Moon. If anyone read the paragraph about the Piscean energies permeating via Neptune with the urge to merge evoking a purging process then this follow up should be right on point.

What Watch defines this as a reinforcement of faith which can open up a new environment through the revision of ideas back to Source when one takes a critical survey of life.

But most people do not like to take a critical eye to anything because let’s face it they feel as someone once said about Ketu natives to use a Magha nakshatra label I was given “seen.” Like they can’t pull one over on us because we can see into a person’s soul depths to analyze them.

It’s been a perplexing week for me personally. I finally spoke to upper management with my job only to learn that if I’m feeling taxed by my workload I should inquire to have 10 minute breaks which are not really breaks. In essence I should go sit at the front near the register and clean the area or rather clock out then leave the building by going outside as if I were a smoker which takes no strain off my legs/feet mind you by standing out in Texas heat, rain, or whatever.

I don’t have a smoking habit so this is another one of those to save face I just replied “fine” in response until I secure a new employment. To boot I was informed that my hours won’t be increasing, but might in fact decrease ostensibly. I’m the assigned store floater so I won’t have a permanent location and will be consistently moving between two or more stores with the keys to the locations.

Sure this all sounds great that someone trusts me to run their locations often alone in such a capacity, but frankly all of the above left me irritated as really no one discussed these arrangements in my interview process. Sometimes the little things count as well as does actual open communication to ensure everyone is on the same page.

I’ve had schedules given to me where at one location I’m often actually finding myself for three days out of the week working 9 to 3 PM CST or working two days out of the week scheduled 9 to 5 PM CST while one location cuts my hours sending me home early at 3 PM CST promptly. Essentially when I had open availability human resources made the decision of what they would allow only to after my mom’s health improved keep my hours permanently in this reduced capacity.

If I had wanted to inquire about increasing them the feel I got was even in good health I’d be denied at this juncture. With some of the gossip that buzzes in this company I can see why some have said those who came in made it roughly one to two weeks and left.

As for me I need to secure new employment before I abandon ship which is why I’ve promptly been assessing the listed positions for receptionist and administration in various fields. While I would gladly take full time I’m resolving to the fact that in our current jobs market I might still be resigned to part time because frankly what is on offer is not atypical anymore.

Ironic that everywhere I’ve worked I have always felt as though I deal with the most random if not illogical at times of corporations, authority figures, and hypocritical rules/business cultures. I get the feeling the employer does not even know what they want suffering from indecisiveness.

As usual I have to digress to the fact that this Full Harvest Moon sits within Pisces at 17° which as you can rightfully guess has something for me to re-assess. Pisces being my South Node in Western/Tropical astrology as well as my 5th House it also tends to reside in the 6th House when we look at Vedic/Sidereal astrology.

September 2022 Full Harvest Moon
“Eggs make great storytellers. They tell some cracking stories.” – Unknown

So what of it? Well our 5th House speaks to imagination and what makes us happy in terms of pleasure achieved through any creative endeavor. Do you favor well in games of chance? How do you deal with matters of the heart? What artistic abilities do you bring to the table?

The 5th House as Purva Punyasthana is one’s past life meritorious deeds. If one does not feel complete and content with life their mental well being is on full display by this position.

Ah, but that 6th House makes it all the more tricky. Your daily habits, routines, and responsibilities are crucially impacting your health and well being. Here we find service/employment, obstacles, debts, physical strength, enemies, and determine if we have put on a brave face to fight with our challenges.

So while the purging can occur on a big picture scale for the collective there is an air of personal that comes to the forefront. Do you need to be more careful or judicious as to what you let enter your life? Is it time to firmly say goodbye and good riddance to something or someone that has held you back? Are you waking up to some astoundingly obvious realities?

This degree indicates it is time to concentrate upon what gives your life more meaning. Therefore this purgation is all about who is measuring up to their spiritual and moral values. If you hold a position of leadership or power within any sphere of life ask yourself and consider if others are acting in an appropriate manner to address the needs of the people below them. Or are they operating from an ulterior motive?

When people dislike their duties or the expectations of others it often leads in fact to someone having to leave, retire, resign, or be ejected. The thing about purgation is that etymologically this is defined as exoneration, cleansing, and forcible removal.

To the dismay of a co-worker who believed this employer valued me and would not possibly throw me under the bus I hope they can understand why my intuitive radar has been red flagging me about so much within this company.

You see purge is taken from Middle English purgen as well as Old French purgier and Latin pūrgō all of which means I make pure or I cleanse. Therefore or thereby we need to purify our motives if we want a better representation of moral or spiritual values.

That requires a reexamination of sincerity in any person, corporation, community, or situation. We can not achieve trust, sharing, or enjoyment when we lose sight of an ideal through ego issues not properly addressed. Anyone involved who failed to live up to their responsibilities as either employee or employer, for example, is best considered for the future and one’s peace of mind to be made over.

If you think of my entry yesterday explaining Alice in Borderlands through the costuming of Heart and Diamond card suits then you’d recognize the theme I can intuit. That theme is that on any level collective or personal when corruption, scandal, deception, and coverups occur it threatens a collapse. I mean what do we all call an “ah-ha” moment other than a light bulb turning on in our mind’s eye.

“I don’t think I can ever replace my pet rabbit. There’s no bunny like her.” – Unknown

Well if we actually understood anything about our seasonal astrotheological celebrations we would know that these structures only exist as a means for bringing people together who share a common link. What is that common link one might ask.

It’s a need to feel connected to one another via a celebratory atmosphere. Within staunch traditions that many feel must stringently be upheld we find a boundary which can be colored with our own personal flair contributing to a soulful event.

This brings forth a fresher approach in which freedom is allowed to develop at its own pace during the celebration. To achieve this one has to have a generosity of spirit that evokes togetherness and creativity.

Easter in particular is the theme of sacrifice and rebirth as much as it is actually speaks to individuality and freedom of expression that is not taken through some strictly dogmatic code of behavior! Lets break down Easter into something we have been missing. The East means rebirth, love, trust, and renewal while the ending of “er” speaks to uncertain to falter.

In any rebirth process we all feel uncertain and can falter so the message of this time is that we should trust in our own heart to help us find the way forward. While I’m sure many people don’t quite understand my irritation it’s because I thought my body would be stronger by now post medications and surgery/fracture, but well it’s not.

I thought one day I would make it to the 30 hour weeks to qualify for insurance benefits, but that won’t happen if someone is working against you to dock your hours from all levels of management. I don’t have an exact familiarity with the laws of my state aroundo paid or unpaid break allowances, but I’ll probably research these shortly.

I’ve never been told to clock out for my 10 or 15 minute breaks by any employer until today as most of them within Texas granted them to us paid stipending them out based on the number of hours worked in any given day so rightfully I tend to sense we’re having the dilemma of when a manager docks you from an eight hour to six hour shift to send you home early this removes paid breaks as a benefit/perk.

What I do know is that I’m generally a good reader of people so even if to my face you try to pass off niceties I can tell if you’re stabbing me in the back. It’s not hard to know when lipstick is put upon a pig as they say.

I won’t get into the job market either because I work with one girl who can get away with breaking all the rules while sitting on her cell phone all day ignoring customers as I try to set a proper example in the hopes she will follow it to no avail. It’s not my job to discipline her as I’m in no authority role.

This is nothing new anywhere I’ve worked in the game of favoritism. Am I judging? Perhaps, but technically I actually do prefer to see other people on my team put some effort in rather than be lazy or appearing useless.

Other new hires upper management poignantly informed me were often no call no shows after completing interview or one day on the job which tells me either they hated it, found something else, or the authority figures were correct in that they were abusing the unemployment system.

As I’m sure many are tired of my complaining I’ll leave you with a little more detail on this degree in astrology. I simply wanted to show that when these energies display they can take on any number of tones at a group as well as individual level playing field.

Before I do that though I should mention that I had an unlicensed customer who I could not sell to that was less than thrilled because she mentioned that at least three Sally beauty supply stores she went to were closed with notices about not having enough staff to maintain the store hours to service their customers. So when someone says people do not want to work or are abusing the unemployment system I do think there is grain of truth to this.

This degree has an intuitive sense of how to protect itself and how to filter out influences which might be disturbing or disruptive to it. It is always able to find a space in which to work and has a special gift for clearing the atmosphere so that room is made to do whatever needs to be accomplished. And if it follows its impulses the result will always be magic working through it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A kangaroo and her baby who looks out from the mother’s pouch.” When a baby kangaroo is born it immediately crawls into the pouch which is like a second womb containing a nipple that it immediately affixes itself to. For kangaroos birth is a slow gradual process that happens in states. It is the opposite of a creature like the horse who falls out of the womb and within minutes is standing up.

The image signifies that this degree at its highest experiences the Universe/Cosmos as a Great Mother who eternally offers safety and protection. It may feel isolated and different from others, but with usually no sense of alienation. It knows that we are all children who are being raised and taken care of by a reality that is utterly intent on our reaching enlightenment. Work with guardian angel Harahel and daimon Orias.

Daimon Orias is connected with the Six of Cups, Moon, Scorpio, and Sealwort (Solomon’s Seal). This daimon specializes in teaching one the virtues of the planets/stars. Orias helps one transform their physical self by eating healthy, exercising, and accessing their personal willpower. If you desire to improve your self esteem or secure a position of high esteem it’s advised to work with this daimon.

The Saturn and Helix Nebulae in Aquarius With a Message You Missed

What can we learn of the equinoxes? That they represent a time of equal light as well as equal shadow for the Sun crosses the plane of the equator towards its relevant hemisphere. This allows for equal day and night on Earth. This symbolizes equilibrium for all where we should achieve balance. This allows for one to become more aware of their immediate environment.

Naturally this means our level of understanding and perception changes so it is the most optimal time to speak to our loved ones. Energies of all kinds are at their peak for us to recognize that we’re not stagnant, the struggle is as much within as without, we should prepare for change, take a time out to heal, and planting season has led to a sign of harvest.

Further Analysis:

To have a successful harvest rid the mind of depression, anxiety, and fear. This time encourages a new journey, new beginnings, and new phases of your life. Acknowledge that Mercury will be retrograde which can create disturbances especially by toying with our emotions. Winds of change will begin to swirl so spend time alone by getting away from technological devices, distractions, and other people.

You don’t need to own or possess other people to achieve fulfillment because you have everything to be whole within you. Expect possible chaos surrounding appointments, phones, and for there to be mental confusion alongside potential argumentative natures.

Travel plans may be glitched so it’s wise to hold off for a bit on any major decisions, purchases, and judgments. Focus instead on ideas surrounding love, beauty, and peacefulness.

All relationships shall be tested at this time from business to marriage to friends/family. Check in with your subconscious and unconscious because whatever you planted, mulled over, and so forth is coming to fruition. Wondering when the Full Harvest Moon occurs where I live; 4:59 AM CST.

You see we need to look back and inquire about something right now. How is your current reality the answer to the problems, thoughts, and vibrations you were experiencing during mid March 2022? The answer is one simple mantra known as just keep swimming.

New or exciting adventures and encounters may occur near this time. Trust your intuition while avoiding irrational thinking, overindulgence, and remember to honor your emotions while not getting stuck in them.

Please remember that as you may know my North Node in Western/Tropical astrology is Virgo so the axis is a meeting of heaven and Earth or rather a marriage. Therefore the practical and tangible meets the transcendent. Meditation is fine, but please care for your plants, help your friend in need, and take stock in life.

Ascertain non-negotiable needs, communicate better with others about your commitments needing to be reciprocal, and watch your finances so that you don’t overspend.

This degree sits upon Phi Aquarius within the constellation of Aquarius. This constellation in Latin is a loan translation of Udrokoos meaning the water pourer hence the affirmation of flowing in relation to the water element. We can also say this a time to recognize that Aquarius governs the legs from below the knees to the ankles where I’m having a lot of residual problems health wise.

If you additionally consider the death games in Alice in Borderlands this constellation deals with the astragals who were sheep thrown up in the air then caught in various manners. Within the human body the astragalus is a bone in our ankle. Ruled by Uranus this constellation is all about change.

Happy Full Harvest Moon!

I’ll see you sometime soon and best wishes at this time. 🥮🎑

Self Examination Saturdays: Spring in Your Step

“But even when the moon looks like it’s waning―it’s actually never changing shape. Don’t ever forget that.” – Ai Yazawa

Yesterday in my attempts to try to bring some “funky” to my blog post due to a lack of knowing what to really publish I began to speak to the fact that this weekend for some is a celebration of both Passover and/or Easter. If you’d like to visit that entry you will find some helpful links on these two holidays tucked away and neatly hidden like dyed eggs in there.

Journey this holiday with the underlined hyperlink text…

🛵🧭🚖

Today is a Full Moon leading up to Easter so I’m going to take a look at the Full Moon which occurred today where I live at 11:55 AM CST and the asteroid Ostara (343) in a Lunar Return chart which anyone can map to discover where this archetypal force might be impacting their life this year. As spoken of yesterday Ostara will reflect some of my ancestry or DNA heritage given that she is a representation of the European/Germanic Paschal month who was not very popular with certain sects of Christianity.

We’ll talk more about her after we look at the Full Moon which is a Pink Moon and has been named the Sprouting Grass, Egg, and Fish Moon which seemingly reminds me of a variety of things from when I grew up. Grass in Easter baskets and fish on Fridays, but those are all customs some may not participate in or that others will recognize speedily as to understanding some of the religious undertones and choices I have experienced growing up now leaving behind some of the more common dogma for a different approach to spiritual practices.

One of the first things I took notice of was the two numbers set aside for the time this Full Moon occurred where I live being 11 and 55. Our first number, for example, speaks to the tarot which differs based on what school or practice you employ as it could signify Justice or Lust/Strength in the Thoth decks. These two archetypal energies deal with various topics. Justice asks that we balance the contrasts in life which are meant to be compliments to one another. We need to employ an objective rather than subjective view often in life.

Lust/Strength speaks to our passions and mastering our lower nature. With this in mind we’re not supposed to suppress/ignore our desire nature rather we’re meant to correctly harness our vitality, will, and energy. Both of these cards harness the Venusian energies on different zodiac signs (Libra versus Leo). Yes, the Arcana are confusing as is all schools of esotericism because everyone wants to re-invent the wheel. Go figure!

The 1 carries the messages of leadership, creativity, and business ventures while the 5 embodies the energies of freedom, adventure, and positive changes. If we added 1155 this would equal 12 and reduce further to 3. This would then resonate with expansion, spontaneity, and our inner wisdom. This number is asking that we avoid toxic relationships, develop our resilience, and look at life from a different angle.

I’ve honestly seen more often than not that this number can indicate an incoming Twin Flame relationship for those who follow that concept. This speaks to the 11 as a Master Builder representing emotional freedom combined with emotional fulfillment. You’re asked to lose any baggage you’ve been carrying. The 55 as a Master Builder might ask you to look at what you eat/drink daily. If you have a bad diet with too much sugar, eating out continuously, and so forth your immune system will become vulnerable to illness. Make sure that whatever you consume it’s actually not processed foods and has some truly meaningful nutrition.

Our Full Moon is placed at 25° Libra where it forms a T-Square with Pluto in Capricorn, Pallas Athena in Aries, and the Sun in Aries. It also forms a Yod with the True Lunar Node in Taurus, Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces, and the North Node in Taurus. I can’t speak to everyone else, but I would look at where Libra is in your astrology chart. For me this is my 12th House on the Western zodiac which is ruled by Neptune/Pisces respectively.

The 12th House also signifying endings makes logical sense with the themes of how we let go to become open to that which is new. Therefore Taurus would have been my 7th House, Pisces my 5th House, and Capricorn my Imum Coeli also on the Western zodiac. That Yod might be the placement I would take the most interest in, but that is just my personal preference, and I don’t want to bog down my viewers with that at this moment.

“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.” – Luther Burbank

The T-Square energy vibrates with emotional catharsis so that we can purge anything we’ve held onto for too long often forcing the hidden subconscious gunk to the forefront of our awareness where can gain proper understanding and release. You’re going to see hidden tensions with family/friends so during this time you may need a safe space as it can become a bit exhausting to cope with.

On the career front if you’re in a role that you’re no longer passionate about this is a signal for you to take the next step in researching what will better motivate you. I’m sure for many right now making career changes is one of the last things they want to be considering, but I know for me personally this was the optimal time to look for employment. I got a blessing handed to me in the last week which I’m looking forward to and have gratitude for.

I’m being ushered back into cosmetology which I’ve been out of for about 4 years now respectively having returned to grocery retail until my foot surgery. I took a risk not expecting to hear anything back on the first job I applied to and it actually turned up a job offer I’m content with. Fingers crossed succeeding through the 90 day probation earns me a permanent place.

The Sun represents the Divine Masculine and is in contrast to the Moon’s Divine Feminine influence so you may see some clashes with you or your partner’s inner child at this time. What you want to observe and avoid are overly controlling or selfish behaviors in relationships. The Sun is our ego while the Moon is our emotions and intuition so we need to consider both at this moment. Pallas Athena represents our inner wisdom which we should be listening to for guidance.

Our Yod is in both Earth and water elements so what we need to realize is this is a time to remain practical, grounded, and to focus on that which maintains stability in our lives. We don’t want our emotions or intuition to come at us the way a raging tsunami arrives. Likewise we need to understand that water can also express that our emotions and intuition are a source of mystery that sustains us providing a sense of peace and calm when we are maintaining harmony.

Water governs circulation, the sweat glands, and our memory. Good advice right now might be to make sure you’re drinking enough water to stay hydrated, to spend some time out in nature, and to take up a practical task with your hands/feet such as cooking, gardening, walking/hiking, or take a trip to the beach.

For me personally the houses impacted by these signs and placements involve the unconscious/subconscious, partnerships, creative pursuits, finances, risk taking, and seeking out pleasure/joy. Libra as the scales is asking that I likely maintain a good work life balance right now with the many hats I’ve been wearing. Below is some information on this degree before we head onto Ostara.

This degree enlarges our awareness making way for new ideas to be introduced into the milieu of our lives in an effortless way so that people experience a minimum of discomfort that might otherwise accrue from the process of change. In all relationships new points of connection can/will appear which can enrich interactions immeasurably. Everyone’s power to communicate is stretched and expanded increasingly opening up more possibilities to be explored.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “In the midst of a forest, a great circular open area.” This is a place to commune secretly with others and nature while remaining protected as this happens. Touching everyone we meet in an intimate and ineffable way is often done at a subliminal and unsuspected level. When we find a space in which to connect we develop the ability to do this swiftly and instinctively offering escape and relief from the world’s narrow focus.

It is through going to this place of deep communion and then returning that we are rejuvenated able to deal with our own world with greater clarity and perspective. Work with guardian angel Umabel and daimon Zagan.

This degree is also helpful with the Unakite Granite crystal and carries the message to open your senses to inspiring messages from your spiritual guides. The focus should be deepened self esteem and self awareness through personal growth leading to metaphysical, logical, and physical answers. Affirm that you experience profound and gentle transformation.

Daimon Zagan connects to the Eight of Wands, Sun, Mercury, Hyssop, and Sagittarius. If you’re working with Zagan you will find it easier to curb your addictions and remove bad habits from your life. You want to work with this daimon for chakra cleansing, shielding/warding, and some work with this daimon when they want a glow up (to transform one’s self in a significantly positive way).

Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. Life will get warmer.” – Anita Krizzan

There is no fixed star for this degree in Libra so let’s move right along to Ostara! Ah, Ostara, Eostere, and yes I am well aware of those who compare this to Ishtar’s Descent! We can argue Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine forever, but really this is getting old fast! So I’m going to leave a few links below on Ostara, Eostre, and Ishtar as archetypes and give a little brief intro before I break into her astrology placement in my Lunar Return chart as I invite/encourage others to chart her as well if they’d like to work with this vibration or energy rather than create a bunch of ruckus arguing about exoteric literalisms neglecting to own their shadow which is like politics/propaganda a sore spot for me.

This season is really at it’s core for holidays or “holy” days simply a time to celebrate the Spring Equinox and a new season of equal darkness/light creating a midway point where energies grow stronger. Ostara was a Germanic Goddess like our Roman Aphrodite who shared a correspondence with April via Ōstarmānod centered around rebirth and fertility. This time like Eostermonath is celebrated with painted eggs to bring back childhood magic.

Some cultures simply dye their eggs red. I don’t think my mom would want me dying eggs with onions in her home though as onion is not one of her favorites; no offense. Still others opt to go for some truly intricate designs. Eostremonath calls back to the Anglo Saxon and Brothers Grimm evidence of the existence of these Goddesses in various parts of Europe. Yes, Easter bunnies!

Plastic eggs are also used in place of real eggs and filled with a variety of items. Some might wish to write what they wish to manifest at this time on a slip of paper and place this inside these such as a new job, new love, new home/car, etc.. This is the time for planting seeds, starting a garden, and spring cleaning. Commonly what we see at this time is the promotion of pollination also with daffodils, honeysuckle, tulips, and wildflowers. If you don’t have much space try an indoor herb garden with sage, rosemary, and basil associated to love, healing, and protection.

Ostara, Eostre, and Ishtar:

Lunar Return Chart for Asteroid Ostara

Asteroid Ostara is in my Leo ruled 5th House of Sagittarius at 21° retrograde for my Lunar Return making a trine with the Sun, a square with Jupiter and Neptune, and a sextile with Saturn. This is the vibration of connecting with others socially to discover opportunities for improving one’s finances or material circumstances. It should be an easier than normal time to connect with those aligned with similar values, asserting one’s self confidently, and being careful of becoming too full of one’s self.

If one is trying to get out of stagnation they’re likely required to shake things up a little bit. This is a time when one values the beauty of nature, struggles with projecting their unconscious onto others, and learns about healthy boundaries. During this time there is a change of re-prioritizing goals, gaining major insight into the true self, and evolving on a chosen path.

Within each of us are hidden glories yet to be discovered, remembered, and retrieved. The chart holder senses the presence of these and is able to covertly and subtly tune whoever they encounter into the inherent greatness within themselves. Even if this happens only in the faintest of ways. A new clearer perspective on life is experienced.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Toads singing at night.” There are energies which are calling to all of us and they call all of the time. As we grow more sensitive and more ready to hear them the volume of these calls is turned way up so that our attention becomes increasingly attuned which causes them to seem to magnify.

Even when engulfed by darkness, uncertainty, and alienation the chart holder is out there calling to and sending messages of hope and encouragement if only others let themselves hear it. Work with guardian angel Sehaliah and daimon Vine.

This degree is also helpful with the Mahogany Obsidian crystal and carries the message to study and remember, perform well, and gain recognition for your specialized expertise. The focus should be life skills which teach one to think outside of the box seeing all opportunities available to succeed. Affirm that you remember information with ease and accuracy when called upon.

Daimon Vine connects to the Ten of Swords, Sun, Gemini, and Mallow. Vine specializes in healing, protecting the aura/prana from psychic vampires as well as guarding the Heart chakra to improve physical health, and aids with divination. This daimon is described often metaphorically as building towers which many don’t quite grasp can imply a steady living, home, or helping one achieve lifetime achievements/goals. Of course there comes a time when these may be shaken down or when we may need to not become trapped in them literally as well as metaphorically.

Beans, buckwheat, lettuce, mushrooms peeking through wildflower stems, and potatoes. We’re still waiting for them to produce some flowers and growth beyond roots, stems, and leaves.

There is also no fixed star for the degree Asteroid Ostara sits on therefore I’m closing today wishing you an eggcelent holiday! Still no bees in this garden, but we do have some wasps trying to pollinate a few plants which is better than last year when they built their nest in our fireplace. Be well! 🐤🌱🐑
