Teach Me Tuesdays: Stranger Things Can Happen And Probably Do

“Know your own limits! Surpassing them might not always be good, so be gentle with yourself!” — Unknown

If we look above my What Watch astrology app also shows us that within Cancer we have not just a New Moon, but the Sun, Asteroid Ceres, and Black Moon Lilith. That is some rather strong energy to be working with at present.

We’re asked by these energies what did you lack while growing up and what are the consequences of this upon your ability to provide self love. Black Moon Lilith in Cancer says there was not enough security in the domestic life and that children suffered anxiety, trauma, and poisonous family members who ignored the needs of their child for nurturance.

Mothers provided their young with power struggles, unavailability, and dysfunction junction. The creative was denied and children now want to move out at younger and younger ages. We’re not allowed nor have the time to heal the trauma.

Black Moon Lilith in Cancer is the sign of a transgenerational family where the women have suffered unnecessarily! And I can whole heartedly state I resonate with this 💯%!

The Lilith archetype was one of rebellion, vengeance, and daimonic creativity. How does that compare to the archetype of Ceres? And how do we embody these Divine Feminine energies?

Let’s hold a mirror up to these vibrations and see if we can see past the illusions gleaning some answers through the underlined hyperlink text. Trust me it will help you understand this New Moon better if you click on the underlines for further study!

🌑🪞👹😱🎑

Isn’t it odd that during my blog post on Sunday I located the information I did including Yudono-san when we have a New Moon in Cancer. I mean seriously even my name is eluding to this through it’s references to rebirth and waterfalls. Another Carl Jung synchronicity?! Or is that confirmation bias.

On my left foot though I don’t think I’d be doing the hiking because well my body can’t take it anymore. In fact I have a podiatrist appointment tomorrow at 2:15 PM CST right after I chauffeur mom to her 2 PM CST appointment with the same foot specialist. It’s literally a two for one family special.

I have come to realize the spasm I had was not just the problem of compression socks I had been informed to wear, but may be a calcium and magnesium deficiency. Which I was already supplementing for amino acid deficiency with my neuropathy.

I guess even eating healthy food and drinking plenty of water is still not enough with my body. So back to my daily regimen of two magnesium a day and getting my calcium intake back up.

Seriously like the Magha nakshatra says about the palanquin/throne someone would have to carry me over there because my left foot would just die after the injuries already sustained in it and the ongoing osteoarthritis that I struggle with.

Which brings me briefly to the topic of fear and death. I have someone who assists right now who seems to be a bit germophobic. This insanity to me began near or before the Rona. Death is not possible if we know anything from quantum physics and energy.

Fear on the other hand is psychosomatic dis-ease which causes paralysis hence why we saw everyone afraid to leave their houses which become prisons and coffins of your own making. You have two paths in life; fear and love.

Fear of death means you will never live because you’re scared to eat, drink, have sex, fly in an airplane, ride in a car, breathe, and so forth. You are dis-empowered due to the power your shadow has over you because fear comes from ignorance and darkness!

It has nothing to do with stepping beyond limitations. We’ve existed with germs as fungus, bacteria, mold, viruses, and such since the beginning of consciousness or creation.

And with no exposure you would have no immune system to fight so please everyone go somewhere and take a chill pill because I can’t live my existence like this or with you when you channel low vibration thriving on fear pornography 24/7/365 x infinity.

Or I will begin donning a Plague Doctor costume when I have to meet with you straight from the constellation Corvus as Crow/Raven. Death is just a transformation of energy; stop living in fear and choose love!

Now that we’re done with that digression our New Moon will occur where I live at 9:52 PM CST on June 29, 2022 in Cancer at 19°. If we all took a peek at our charts we’d locate which house is Cancer; mine it is the natal 9th House which is normally how I address these Moon phases, but I could certainly employ any number of other charts.

Age Harmonics would put this instead within my 4th House at age 42 soon to be 43 this July 26th.

“I asked the librarian for a book about Pavlov’s dogs and Schrödinger’s cat. She said it rang a bell, but she didn’t know if it was there or not.” – Unknown
“When things get tough, remember: whether you know them or not, there’s at least one person out there who you’ve impacted with your life.” — Unknown

A funny degree because yesterday I set up my Animal Crossing Pocket Camp as a wedding venue of sorts with all the decor I had so I’ve even got a dog marrying a cat in the game. I had not even begun considering the New Moon when I designed my camp and camper yesterday while resting my foot having completed all our laundry, dinner, and other chores.

The 9th House in comparison to the 4th House looks like a deep plunge into the meaning of life through higher realities beyond our logical mind where our past karmic actions performed in all our past births have led to our destiny/fortune.

If your 9th House is favorable in your chart you receive fertile land for yourself, but if it was afflicted your land becomes barren. The 9th House also speaks to dharma, worship, publicity, publishing, spiritual beliefs, temple pilgrimmages, meditation, and charity.

The 4th House is where we seek happiness internally through finding our way towards enlightenment/liberation. This deals particularly with heart, emotions, our concepts of mother, agriculture, our nourishment at home, and sleep.

It is directly tied to the Divine Feminine as well as the subconscious mind while making up the moksha trikona or spiritual triangle between 4th, 8th, and 12th Houses.

The spiritual aspirant does not go towards materialism rather they yearn for the doorway to liberation where they can free themselves from all materialistic attachments. The highest being the human body. They wish to let go of attachment to people, surroundings, and worldly pleasure to remove the cycle of birth/death.

Plug “liberty” into the search function of this blog and you will see how this shapes my beliefs so strongly. I eat, sleep, breathe, and drink this for I can not exist without such a concept as freedom!

4th House is a hidden house that expresses the inner core of your being and the roots/origin of your created personality impacting your decision making abilities of the future.

Your human quest is happiness and this is where you locate it. For some of us the house, car, clothes, and all other worldly pursuits mean nothing if we can not see the Divine within and express our gratitude, empathy, and compassion for the opportunity to seek and receive moksha.

This degree wherever it lies within your chart will read as follows. Please note that this likely is expressed also through the marriage of heaven and Earth.

“What bird movie won an Oscar? Lord of the Wings.” – Unknown

The chart holder is trying to find keys to understanding themselves through new ways of communicating. They need to approach this in a gradual way while keeping at their efforts. They can easily become frustrated and the antidote to this is patience coupled with perseverance.

The world always seems unusual to them for they take nothing for granted. This is a beautifully open minded way of being so long as they can avoid becoming overly insecure.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An opossum comes out into the moonlight.” The Chinese characters are a whole world of pictures to be explored and understood little by little. The opossum, too, is engaged in exploring. This is an Aries degree with the sign Aries ruling all things exploration.

The degree is highly subjective and interior. It wishes to be left to its own impulses and doings without having to answer or justify itself. It seeks meaning in everything desiring to understand how that meaning all fits together, but not from any logical/rational viewpoint.

This is a degree of feeling via the life of the imagination. It’s way of understanding anything is highly personal. Work with guardian angel Aniel and daimon Phenex. I’ve previously covered both of these more than once so I’m diverting you to the following blog post for more information on the guardian angel as well as daimon for effective insight.

Of note this Wednesday our Moon will make a T-Square with Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. These are the combined energies of water, fire, and Earth. An ongoing battle happens in the subconscious where each energy is fighting to dominate the other.

You will find two in opposition with one acting as arbitrator. Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn operate in Cardinal Mode being ambitious desiring to begin new adventures, working on them instantly, and never stopping until success is attained. Your goal is to learn to use your energy efficiently.

Now let’s look deeper into this pattern. Aries is a “Me” first temperament with Cancer as the home/family and Capricorn is the embodiment of our economy and government at large.

This implies that the pressures cascading throughout our collective societies are now falling onto our homes/families while Saturn insists on following and defining the rules and Uranus waits to come thundering down in a bolt of lightening with inspiration to fuel Pluto’s clapping hands over a need for transformation.

Written another way home/family is under assault from society and government while the “Me” generation awaits a driving force that will give them direction and these are all in fact generational planets with an impetus for great resurrection and change.

Jupiter has fueled this fire by asserting that Cancer and our 4th House maintain our families and value systems correcting what has been done to and by our generations at large on the 3D playing field. Bullying and bigotry must step aside!

NGC 2359 in Canis Major

The degree falls upon two fixed stars which include Delta Monoceros in Monoceros the Unicorn and Muliphein in the neck of Canis Major the Greater Dog. Monoceros is the unicorn which was once an apothecary symbol as it was to represent the horn as a panacea for all illness.

The closest representations believed to be these mythical creatures are the rhinoceros and narwhal. Most likely an Asian rhinocerosunicornis to be exact or maybe even the elasmotherium.

Derivatives of monos from Greek include monad, monastery, and monk for their references to alone or single. Other references may include Amalthea the she-goat nourishing baby Jupiter through the horn of plenty or cornucopia. British slang depicts the word rhino with money and the origin is the expression “paying through the nose.”

The rhinoceros is a solitary creature both male/female establishing their own territory where they were in the past displayed as pious symbols of those who renounce the world loving to dwell alone removed from their kind.

It is here that we find concepts even of monasticism and the Pythagorean Monad as a term for God as the totality of all beings referencing the source as one without division which brings forth the belief in monotheism.

Unfortunately I’m unable to find much information on the other fixed star at present. Historically it was known as Wezen or Hadar through its Arabic form. Wezen came to us via Al Wazn meaning weight. Kabbalists associated this with the Hebrew letter Tzaddi and the tarot trump The Moon.

You’ll figure it out whenever you’re meant to. As I’ve said I’ve been covering this for months now throughout 2021-2022 often finding myself back where I’ve started multiple times literally traveling in circles. The New Moon suggests we lie low, recharge our batteries, improve our mental health, and take in a well deserved Cosmic reboot.

Dust off your vision board and assess what you most want in your future. Your life is not just about your materialism, consumerism, and go go go. What you need most is emotional security, time for your ancestors/family, and stability beneath your feet to reach the stars.

Poor foundations and ignoring your intuition don’t allow for you to stand. Gain self moderation, grounding, and stop letting others make you feel caged. Have a fantastic and unreal New Moon! Best wishes! 🙏🏻🌠

Teach Me Tuesdays: June’s Strawberry Supermoon Brings Cleansing During a Harvest

“The night is a strawberry.” – Louise Penny

While I was sleeping the June Strawberry Supermoon signifying our ripening and in-gathering of harvest occurred at 4:51 AM CST in Sagittarius at 22° with aspects which includes a T-Square between the Sun in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces with a Stellium between Uranus, the North Lunar Node, Venus, and the Ascendant in Taurus while Mercury was at zero point Gemini. Other names for this Moon include the Green Corn Moon, Berries Ripen Moon, Horse Moon, Flower Moon, and Mead Moon as the meadows were mowed.

Yes, I still have the strawberry jewelry box above near my wealth altar in my bedroom. It was made by my best friend in high school during our pottery class we shared.

This will impact everyone a little bit differently for a variety of factors. Myself personally my natal 2nd House is Sagittarius while in the same configuration/chart my 8th House is Gemini, my 5th House is Pisces, and my 7th House is Taurus. The Sabian Symbol of this degree linked to above is about taking our dirty laundry whatever that may be literally or metaphorically, giving it a good thorough wash with detergent and/or fabric softener, and then industrial or line drying it.

For me personally this is a time where wisdom and good judgment can bless one with better earning capabilities and expand our overall ideas/vision regarding finding resources which support our ability to feel secure in life. We have a lucky guardian angel who helps us attain positive publicity, a love for comfort/relaxation, and determines whether or not we will be the spender/saver with our overall wealth acquired past, present, and future.

We display as outspoken, courageous, and we tend to concentrate our energies on that which is according to our own impulse rather than people pleasing. Our intuitive/psychic nature allows us to have a deeper awareness of how others perceive us. This can also be a trigger for our internal insecurities. We believe that we’re often misunderstood or seen as impulsive and unpredictable. We are not like other extroverts in that we actually do enjoy our moments of solitude.

My placements also indicate something I’m more than well aware of. I have an extremely discriminating knowledge of current events from consuming television or alternative news programs/podcasts and being overly interested in public affairs. When Neptune transits into my 5th House, however, I become a million times more spiritual, imaginative, and ironically as you may/may not have noticed we take up an extreme desire to learn about vibration, energy, and all kinds of woo with quantum physics.

I saw a website at one point that explained the problem with creating Happiness Machines which reminded me of Kabbalah’s take on the Wheel of Fortune. You’re not designed to remain in bliss forever despite modern esotericists who claim such practices are healthy.

The color range of zinnias is still a little limited, but I’m still enjoying what has grown in the garden nonetheless.

Life is cycles therefore if you were actually transcending duality consciousness you would no longer identify any instance in your life as inherently a form of polarity be that male versus female, black versus white, or positive versus negative. Many of us have not been trained to reach such levels because our self professed or propped up by others yogis, preachers, life coaches, etc. prefer to make money and fame by selling us what I’ll call half truths as they’re not inherently lies or untruths.

Back to placements that have a personal emphasis for me true fulfillment lies in finding a balance between traditions, responsibility, and the exciting/experimental. We’re rebellious against authority. Our life is not just about understanding or knowing self, but there is a deliberate attempt to do the same with others.

The T-Square currently can present us with those who are stubborn, inflexible, and struggle with commitment. It’s going to be a slightly bumpy ride where being ambitious or go-getter meets a bit of strife, but if we employ our endless supply of inner intelligence we’re likely capable of adapting easily to anything we’re presented with at this time. Stelliums in and of themselves present other challenges pushing us towards mastery through repeated trial/error.

You may see blurred boundaries, face rejection from peers, deal with some rather chaotic environments, and need to find quirky or original solutions to what life brings your way at this time. The best way to imagine a stellium is as if you were the mom of multiple children with various archetypes being displayed that you’re trying to get into a cooperative group.

We could call each of these archetypes the Performer, the Activist, the Anxious, the Studious, and the Rescuer. Life is asking you to investigate each one and determine what they mean to you personally.

The Performer wants to be center stage while the Activist desires to champion various social, environmental, and economic/political causes. The Anxious struggles to feel secure knowing what is expected of them yet the Studious yearns to persevere through hard work. Finally the Rescuer is enlivened by opportunities to race in and save the day.

Let’s investigate this degree further; I’m very familiar with this as I’ve crossed it before in my astrology chart years ago during a transit. It’s actually in my eyes a fun degree to explore.

A passionate and insistent self expression can be found here. This degree displays the ability to stir up energies which bring transformation to situations by provoking others to see them in a new way. It helps others to get back in touch with what they’re really feeling and comfortably express themselves. Affirming once again the ground of our being lies in renewing our self assurances that we’re ready to move on.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Blackbirds flying out of a pie.” Live birds were never meant to be eaten. There are dark energies we were never meant to take in. In this degree suddenly and surprisingly they release in a way that is harmless even humorous and delightful.

In the original nursery rhyme there were four and twenty of them. Twenty-four being the number of the soul’s complete journey. This is a fortunate number where one will get to enjoy a good life with love, support, and affection from others.

And so this is not just a partial release of what Eckard Tolle calls the “pain body,” but gradually and eventually a complete release of it. This degree is Kabbalistically ruled by the Moon and Sagittarius is the sign of transcendence hence the subconscious (Moon) eventually transcending its repressed contents. Work with guardian angel Ariel and daimon Bifrons.

Daimon Bifrons correlates to the Two of Cups, Mars, Tobacco, and Cancer. This daimon helps us to better understand geometry, mathematics, astrology, and the properties of herbs as well as stones. Another benefit of working with Bifrons is during post funeral rites to ensure restless souls of the departed may safely transition.

For those born into Magha nakshatra such as myself any instruction or assistance with this particular daimon helps us to remain in touch with our departed ancestral heritage particularly as a means of honoring them.

For many we may meet with our pitris also during our dreams as they might have unfinished karma on the physical planes that we’re here to burn/finish for them. And while a great many would say that’s not your obligation some spiritual practices believe this assists the entire family lineage in obtaining the various degrees of liberation we seek to accomplish.

I’ve found what I believe is a two part series on Ketu which rules Magha nakshatra with Regulus that is great for me particularly as my Ketu was in Aquarius with my Rahu in Leo. You see the nakshatra is a lunar mansion which means my Moon is Leo while the Sun was in Cancer under a Sidereal/Vedic natal chart.

After a while I will admit this can become confusing for self as well as others due to the intricacies of how deeply one can study their natal or other astrology charts/workings. My sidebar explains the differences I have in Tropical and Sidereal.

On a more general approach as everyone would need to look upon their natal and transit charts to ascertain the current path their June Strawberry Supermoon asks of them this time is ideal for anything related to family, career aspirations, and believing in yourself.

If you’re struggling with self confidence enlist the support of loved ones whatever tribe that may include as it may not be the one you’re born into. Clean out your closets/drawers, old papers/receipts, and anything else which clutters your life at this time. It’s auspicious now to free up any stagnant or negative energy similar to my blog post on Gandanta recently.

If you’re interested in crystal work this degree is great with Blue Onyx expressing a message of emotional purification and transformation as excesses wash away and virtuousness is enhanced by focusing upon taking a necessary retreat to a quiet location where you may reawaken your spirituality and grow personally. The affirmation is I make time for reflection, stillness, and silence in my life.

The degree falls upon two fixed stars of interest. We would look to Ras Alhague in the head of Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer and Gamma Apus in Apus the Bird Of Paradise. With a name traced to Persian astronomy via Al Rai’ as The Shepherd and the Chinese name How as the Duke we find that the first fixed star we are investigating is associated with Asclepius ruling medicines. Other associations from Kabbalists include the Hebrew letter Ayin and the tarot trump The Tower.

Apus literally translates from it’s connection with the family Apodidae or the Swifts as Without Foot in the constellation of Bird of Paradise. Swifts can reach speeds of 69 miles per hour. Paradise being a word with Persian roots is generally identified with the Garden of Eden. Portuguese traders first encountered these birds on trade roots to the Moluccas which is taken from the Arabic root malik meaning king. In Hebrew the related word is malach meaning angel/messenger.

Swifts have such small legs they were believed to have none at all. These aerial birds drink, bathe, preen, collect food, and sleep/mate while on wing. In China this constellatin was Cho the Curious Sparrow or the Little Wonder Bird.

This time also can be seen as Vat Purnima when married women dedicate to Savitri who tricked Yama the God of Death into giving her dead husband a new lease on life. Devotees worship the Banyan where she sat and prayed.

I hope your June Strawberry Supermoon is a day filled with much catharsis and distillation. I’m finishing up some chores and have been resting due to chronic foot pain. Today is a day of rest, ice, compression, and elevation for my left foot. Which sounds alchemic in it’s own sense, but then I don’t expect everyone to grasp the cryptic reference.
