The above is a reference to the attempts my mom and I made to listening to a very long winded audio book meant to prove the flat Earther mentality and persuade others to their cause. It was the most difficult audio book I’ve ever subjected myself to, and I regretted the experience.
Whoever their front man was narrating and publishing the audio book did not do their cause much justice in my opinion. Today we’re going to combine some astrology speculation with the messages from our King of Coins as shown above.
All helpful study materials can be found/utilized by daring to undertake a thought experiment with me today via the underlined hyperlink text.
Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to simply pull a card at random! I decided to inquire what magic was being drawn out for spell work generally inquiring the answer to come forth from the Ancestors. The answer was the King of Coins a rather Earth based energy of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn respectively.
This prompted my curiosity to run a Heliocentric Chart through our recent lunar positions to attempt at balancing or otherwise harmonizing the energies. Heliocentric speculation is the only chart I’ve found thus far which will interpret the placement for Earth to give us some further insight when we seek it.
The purpose of such a vantage point is sometimes best described as looking for characteristics of two visions/perspectives between the (soul/Sun at the center) and (the personality/Earth at the center). Sometimes what one can learn in these studies is how to differentiate virtues from vices if they’re only seeking a dualistic cosmology of sorts.
Heliocentric tends to define how one would intuit the energies available for a disciple to assert and sow any evolutionary or constructive ideals of the future from the causal/higher planes. The astrological glyph for Earth is often assigned as Terra which is Latin for ground. It rules our 2nd, 6th, and 7th Houses as well as our entire physical body.
The cross is symbolic of our physical realm of existence while the circle encapsulates the totality of Universal/Cosmic energy which is eternal. Most of the traits commonly exhibited would be endurance, practicality, realism, and productivity. It comes then as no massive shock that we would find Earth presently with our energies inhabiting the 11th House of my chart in Aquarius at 6°.
Our enthroned King can signify a person seeking new beginnings, protection, hope, and growth. When this card appears to us upright it wants to let us know that our future is bright therefore we should believe in good opportunities lying ahead. Of equal importance it cautions one to take care of their health for if we don’t there are serious consequences that will befall us.
We need to remember that the choices we make affect others both near and far not just ourselves. Our King of Coins is a person who not only comes up with the plan, but will also be capable of executing it. Other cards that relate to this energy include the Emperor, Hierophant, Temperance, and Tower. It reflects a timing period of roughly August 11th to September 10th which befits our Full Harvest Moon indicating that this can transpire for approximately 1 year or more.
We are being asked to develop a pragmatic, hands on, reliable, and conservative approach to whatever change lies ahead and the capability to adapt when needed. Overall Kings in any deck are symbols of authority as well as the 14th card of any suit which is how we find references to both Temperance and Hierophant as 14 will reduce to five in numerology
If we can successfully assess the reality of any situation presented to us we will generally remain secure. This requires higher levels of consciousness coupled with a mastery over our base level instincts. If you would like to view a variety of interpretations for this card I’m including some below before I re-investigate the astrological aspects mentioned above a little more in depth.

If you’ve neglected to notice I opted for the Sidereal/Vedic function again in this chart, but what is of import is that both Earth and Moon lie upon the exact same degree in the exact same house. Our 11th House governs any sources of income we might receive which are not necessarily retained by our profession. These could be via inheritances or other forms of speculative ventures.
Governing our social sphere and the relationships we share with friends/family it is the 11th House which in Vedic astrology is referred to as the Badhaka or obstruction. Not every desire that strikes our fancy is healthy. In fact many can be destructive! Aquarius rules the 11th House as well as the ankles/calves of our human body.
We can find in my chart that Earth is conjunct Sun and Saturn, quintile Mercury, biquintile Venus, semisquare Mars and Chiron, and lastly semisextyle Jupiter. It’s a placement for those who value freedom at all costs remaining restless until they obtain it. Often attracted to unusual subjects such as astrology, psychology, or psychiatry we’re strong advocates for the individuation process.
As a more inventive, nonconformist, and progressive position Earth on this degree often causes one to give full reign to their daimon/genius with a disregard for traditions or customs that others will adopt dogmatically finding these to be restrictive and limiting influenced entirely by society’s guidelines. This creates the rebellion phase where tensions force one to surprise others catching them off guard.
One might develop a system of their own for expression that communicates via “clipped” and precise fashion that taciturnly emphasizes originality and separateness from others. Value systems will revolve around adventure seeking that which is exciting and sharply defined.
Dull routines become abhorrent therefore this placement will mean one is striving to escape from any pointlessness in their everyday life. Most will find the chart holder to be one who actively breaks the rules through a willful display of acting like they don’t care or give a @#$%&!
The wound of Chiron here on this degree is that if one does not embody their distinct individuality feeling as though they truly exist as a separate entity who is unique and one of a kind they develop an inability to let empathy flow, go about life almost robotic, and dissociate from their personality when asked to conform to the needs of parents, society, or other conventional expectations.
This creates the splinter effect found in psychology where we reject aspects of self feeling marginalized. Wholeness arises when we stop viewing ourselves as outcasts allowing our inner state of alienation/rejection to fall away by integrating what was thrown off into our shadow.
A caveat this is not a self diagnosis before anyone assumes such. But frankly how many theories are there in the world supposedly meant to assess, help, and fix whereby some will work and others might not even appeal to an audience? Why ask?
Because I was primarily introduced to Jung over much of anyone/anything else. I don’t believe it’s the confirmation bias of a shared birthday on 7/26 because that birthday is shared by many others who are historically famous.
Certain theories work for some and simply put others won’t jive creating a sort of discontinuity with one’s alignment. Here is some further introductions for this degree.
The question here is in what way does life mirror art? This degree desires to make art and life one which means that all endeavors become art. That all human activities cease to be mechanical and take on a freshness and aliveness that is ever renewed through the creative spirit. It is all about inviting the spiritual light into the physical world.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gardener with just one leg.” The gardener is slowed down on the one hand, but has become at least partially disencumbered from being tied to the Earth so that there is room for Universal/Cosmic forces to enter into the garden.
This degree brings something new and unusual to whatever it works with. It opens up systems that have been formerly closed so that exciting and beautiful energies may come through. And through nurturing the garden and bringing it to perfection the self is once again made whole. Work with guardian angel Caliel and daimon Bathin.
Peculiar resonance here to say the least!
Bathin corresponds to the 10 of Pentacles, Venus, Virgo, and Mistletoe. We’re setting our sights upon a daimon who is good with herbs, stones, and is generally seen as the traveler’s safety partner. The only things missing from working with Bathin are prosperity, divination, and job searches.
Needing to take an astral projection journey that is smooth and fast; try using this daimon. This is also true when migrating to a distant country. Potentially all travel is made easier when one works with Bathin.
While there is not a specific fixed star for this degree what I noticed specifically within my chart is that the Earth as well as the Moon are positioned exactly one full degree from the fixed star Alpha Microscopium in the Microscope. It’s not hard to discern that this constellation was named for the invention of Hans and Zacharias Janssen; the microscope.
The purpose of such an instrument being that it magnifies or makes greater in size that which it focuses upon. There is really little to be deduced beyond this for the constellation. It will be highest in the sky around the months of July.
The energies commonly circle around newly formed ideas with a fragile structure that are harbingers of undeveloped potentials. If you have anything upon this degree in your chart consider working with Larvikite expressing positive quick wit and clever intelligence.
The message is that new beliefs come from becoming bored with what we already have. The focus then becomes the promotion of radical concepts and values which become indispensable in the future. The affirmation is I seek fresh and inspirational thought patterns.
Have an encouraging Wednesday! 🤗💖
