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.

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.
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! 🤗💕
