Teach Me Tuesdays: Should I Try Out Forensic Astrology?

“I joined a new therapy group for loneliness. Nobody turned up.” – Unknown

There are days where I’m completely stumped for inspiration. Then there are days that something shows up at random piquing my interest to set off on a journey of exploration. Today was the latter! Dig up some suspicious intimations with the provided underlined hyperlink text.

⛏️🪨💎🏕️

I’ve really never dabbled in this arena, but I stumbled today upon an article expressing views I could rightly get around when it explained that unlike most in traditional schools of exoteric/esoteric astrology we need to interpret asteroids, dwarf planets, centaurs, etc. in our charts because they are the blind spots we’re ignoring.

Imagine if you will when you learn or teach someone for the first time how to drive a vehicle. You’re about to parallel park or make a lane change or even a three point turn, but you never look in your mirrors. Get back to me on how well you think this will work in preventing a car accident or vehicular damage.

The science of astrology has many avenues we can take for education be that tight orbs, aspect patterns, transits, and so forth. Many are stuck within cliche format astrology which I spent months after rejection in the online communities soap box ranting about here at my blog when I also closed my business Twitter account.

I’ve continued to write/compose, but it propelled me back into part time 9-5 employment and seeking full time employment in abject disgust with cold readings and a desire to almost not want to fight for something I’m passionate about. It was not an “I can’t do it” attitude that I had, but the attitude of others taking such a stance that made me abjectly repulsed by their limiting beliefs.

To merge the physical and astral realms someone suggested we look to the asteroid Seeberg (8130) as a trigger which condenses on Earth in the 3D. There are correlations here to “Earthing” as discussed Saturday, placements of Saturn, Pluto, and Black Moon Lilith, and finally one’s ability to process data so that we properly see the tree in the forest.

This asteroid came into discovery in February of 1976 which I’ve found a theme here again when I mentioned the Phantasm franchise because it was created in 1979 the year I was born. The name of this asteroid originating from one P. Brosche in the former Seeberg Observatory now known as the Gotha Observatory of the town of Gotha. This observatory was visited in 1801 by Goethe.

Being that ancestral family immigrated as I’ve said from Germany/Denmark with a variety of Ashkenazi, Anglo Saxon, Norse, and minor Ethiopian Jewish/Middle Eastern genetics I’m not inherently sure if I’d want to visit the region or not. I previously explored another location such as this in my blog for astrological purposes realizing I’d prefer to never visit the locale now or in a future incarnation. Thanks very much!

I assume family immigrated to the United States for a valid reason. Probably something here to do with that theme of not living in the past and choosing to remain in the present or future timelines after all it seems the website requires the Wayback Machine; trying to not laugh.

Or maybe it is my lack of appeal when it comes to the divine rule/right of kings/queens because I’m not watching Game of Thrones as others do because I don’t like Netflix and chill.

Certainly not after my two medical leave of absences for the foot fractures/ligament surgeries I sustained and being on home lockdown during them non weight bearing where I had life experiences that for me personally forced me to endure circumstances with chronic pain, pharmaceutical and medical systems I was displeased with, and other unpleasant entanglements that caused a form of trauma I’ve been working to heal.

“What runs but never gets out of breath? A river!” – Unknown

I am a different kind of Leo who uses much of this the way as I’ve said working up to Master level Reiki implored that we should first heal ourselves before distance healing or taking clients in our business. I’ve consistently stated I use my ancestors as examples for my business astrology sample reports and myself rather than abuse relationships with clients by disclosing their personal information or prying into the lives of celebrities without their consent.

And doing my own shadow work is a way to properly heal my subconscious/unconscious as well as try to show that this is not always about self absorption, narcissism, or ego contrary to popular methodology. Everything begins with us if we want change in society through the sphere of influence we actually have to exert any sense of control or self rule in our lives.

But as usual I digress this observatory was in fact important as a center for astronomy where the first European meeting of astronomers began in 1798. The asteroid Seeberg thereby given this his or her story honors a 200th Anniversary of this conference.

For regular followers of my blog I chose this asteroid due to it’s proximal association to the mystical or spiritual importance of the truest sense of the word “liberation” where one’s love for life and creation strongly aspected gives one a superhuman depth of mind that is the basis of deeply psycho-metaphyiscal insights which others may not have.

When someone presents as operating from a higher consciousness being sensitive to recreating unfolding spiritual structures through psychological pressure by detecting veiled or occulted mental psycho-energetic vibrations their or other’s environment comes to a subjective as well as objective outlook of a particular time/place.

They begin to transcend the rat race and postmodernism of current societies offering to the world at large angelic encouragement, psychic understanding, esoteric breakthroughs, and clairvoyant talents.

Seeberg in forensic astrology shows where karmic predestination gravitates to the Eros function of one’s psyche rather than that of Thanatos. It has also been associated with magnetization or attraction and space travel observed from a position on Earth.

Persona Chart for Asteroid Seeberg

While I have made personal notation of this asteroid within my natal chart I am choosing for my readers to look upon the Persona chart for answers today. This chart should be one’s best friend because it is a tool which brings into focus the facets of our being through archetypal energies present within not just our psyche, but within our very soul signature.

If what you seek is intimate (in to me see) knowledge of self/other this is the best method for discernment. We would find by looking upon this interpretation that this asteroid is within my 2nd House of Aquarius at 19° harboring some interesting symbolism.

What do we know about the elements of fire and water? As I’ve said about Vedic rather than Western parlance this might be gandanta which can occur in the Leonine Magha nakshatra I’ve referenced.

A knot or difficult ending which we must unravel and reconcile for as the individual with these potent placements they deal with inner struggles and traumatic events in their personal relationships. We know that fire boils water and that water extinguishes a fire.

Here maximum spiritual development occurs. Fire in the South evokes passion, inspiration, intuition, creativity, and protection yet water in the West evokes fertility, wealth, strength, and wisdom. Even the Kozminsky interpretation of this degree has striking correspondences as seen below.

19° Aquarius: Setting Sun shining on a waterfall giving it the appearance of golden water.

Denotes one who has a graceful method of expressing his/her thoughts and who will reach their place when life’s midway has passed. They will accomplish much and his/her words will ring so that many will stop to listen. Their actions harmonize with their beliefs and their soul is serene. It is a symbol of Proclaiming.

“Feeling gourd-geous.” – Unknown

Our 2nd House is all about value and possessions. How do you earn or handle finances and take care of that which is yours? What sense of security do you have in your life? When we look upon a 2nd House Aquarius chart placement we see that one knows the importance of money, enjoys having it, but uses it as a tool to free themselves.

We refuse to sell our souls preferring multiple sources of income/employment going through the ups as well as downs of having abundance and then poverty riding the roller coaster of incarnation.

This makes sense to me as I have just been going through a glow up with my birthday and recent employment. We’ve managed to get the brakes done on my vehicle, upgraded my iPhone 8 Red to an iPhone 13 Alpine Green, and I’m still seeking or making considerations for how I might expand this online business or if I should adventure instead into full time employment putting this on the back burner.

At home the garden has been quite successful this year for the food was abundant allowing for us to share with others as well we’ve been able to care for nature including the fact that I’ve now noticed our zinnias are an attraction for a total of two hummingbirds as well as we’ve had several other pollinators from bees to wasps to butterflies as I’ve previously mentioned.

Some have taken photos of our garden as inspiration wanting to take up the same because many of us realize there has been a lot of speculation surrounding sourcing issues in recent times from a variety of factors be that human or climate engineered famines/weather crisis or just the simple fact that some legitimately could live in grocery deserts.

Succeeding at this organically has been a boost to my confidence because I believed in the past that no “I could not do it.” Now I’ve had family friends ask me for advice and asistance when they set up their own gardens referencing that I as I’ve said have not one, but two green thumbs.

In the Persona chart this asteroid is sesquiquadrate Moon, opposing Mercury and Jupiter, square Uranus, sextile Neptune, and trine Pluto. This placement forces us to look at the Divine Feminine and inner child for healing ensuring that we are responsive, receptive, reflective, and instinctual. Our brain is struck by lightning so we can draw insights quickly communicating the gems we discover with equally fast response times.

While our ideas are often resisted we unjam traffic congestion by bringing newfound opportunities to those who desire change. Our dream life and imagination are experimental opting for reforming and free thinking approaches to science, art, and psychology. Our eccentricities and individuality can make us harsh resisters of anything restraining or oppressing human rights causing us to call out any form of prejudice, injustice, or abuse of power.

So much is always bubbling up within us, but our karma and our structure keeps it down. The fantasies of the past and the future remove us from the present. This degree, though, is good at returning back to the present with a jolt and finding there the energy that is waiting to come forth which then works like flowing water to wear away resistance to the force of evolution.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Loud crushing noises as a glacier moves.” Evolution is the strongest force within the Universe, and when met with resistance can be slowed down, but never stopped. This degree is highly sensitive to forward movement feeling it happen even if only very minutely in the most stuck and entrenched situations.

It is an encourager of movement supporting all that is evolutionary doing this often in the most subtle and hidden of ways. For those in hopeless situations it often unwittingly plays the role of a hidden angel. Work with guardian angel Lecabel and daimon Foras.

“One gardener asks the other, “botany new plants?”” – Unknown

Daimon Foras connects us to the Eight of Pentacles, Mercury, Lemons, and Virgo. Do you have a problem that is difficult to resolve, but you’re struggling with finding clarity? This daimon will help you with knowledge, wisdom, and understanding by teaching you the value of self introspection.

Foras helps us to develop a healthy outlook when upkeeping our physical body by protecting us from emotional disturbances giving us a clearer mind that operates from a place of stability.

There is no fixed star for this degree, however, it is advised to work with Larvikite remembering the vital importance to look inwards and find our own love for ourselves rather than looking for something that is not there outside of ourselves.

Only you can give to yourself because those that lack for themselves are placed within a culture of survival rather than bonding. Focus on how letting go of the past allows for you to make a fresh start for yourself that blesses you with a happiness which is powerful and freeing.

You see when you know who you are, where you come from, and what you want you climb to a new level of personal power that allows you to represent yourself as one who moves beyond old wounds. It is then that you can go enjoy a well deserved break.

You can’t do anything with dead relationships especially if you’re dealing with those who emotionally or psychologically hurt others. Some are morally, spiritually, and ethically bankrupt thus you won’t find a shred of human decency in them.

Leos are magnanimous and Aquarians are humanitarians. The morning of the Leo New Moon was reminiscent of the total eclipse in 2017 where I missed work because I experienced extreme nausea, light headedness, dehydration, and a severe migraine.

When I looked around me all I saw was pastel paint splatters around me of pinks, yellows, and blues feeling as if I could pass out unconscious at any moment. The entire day was as draining for me energetically as was the 2017 eclipse. Both times I remained depleted and feeling utterly run down.

I was so ill on the Leo New Moon that I hope this won’t repeat on the Lionsgate because I sent a group text despite it angering certain team mates at my part time cosmetology job. I could not even write out the message relying upon microphone to not create absurdity through voice recognition.

It once wrote “clean Xbox” for Kleenex box making me wonder about our supposedly ingenious artificial intelligence yet again. Fake intelligence indeed! Context is everything and most of us don’t want the above going out in what may sometimes be important correspondence we wish to send.

Always care for yourself first and foremost. After all you can’t give to others until your own cup is full. Have an investigative Tuesday full of insightful potentials. 🦉💡

Teach Me Tuesdays: What Does The Royal Throne Wish To Teach

“I must have misplaced my queen after a chess game. I will need to check.” – Anonymous

Get your time travel gear ready because today’s underlined hyperlink text is going to transport you back a few decades for a brief history lesson of sorts. Why do I employ this method?

Well because believe it or not I’m actually trying to not rip off other authors/creators and simply co-create with everyone in the collective/group. Sharing is caring even if we’re all harmonizing.

📅🚘🗺️⏰

Our lunar landscape changes on July 28, 2022 and this will feel a bit different for each of us based on our personalized astrology charts as well as where we happen to be located on Spaceship Earth. For me it will occur at 12:54 PM CST, however, Leo in my natal chart happens to be my 10th House within Western/Tropical astrology and 11th House within Vedic/Sidereal astrology.

The degree with which we’re experiencing this vibration originates from within the Magha nakshatra at 5° known for a direct ancestral connection which grants access to mystical powers beyond what adults observe.

I’ve spoken at length before about the ancestral records I received when my maternal grandfather passed as well as the furniture I inherited. I thought today I’d share just a few photos from my great grandmother’s yearbook circa 1921 with a brief collection of history from this moment in time.

You will also find a few photos that my step father shared with us Memorial Day 2022 at his job honoring our service members in their cafeteria paying tribute to my maternal grandfather. I believe the other photo is of my uncle, but I’m not for certain.

Why is this? Well Leo explores creative self expression through childlike wonder. Everyone has their view of the Lion who is King/Queen of the jungle, but they miss the fact that this zodiac sign is deeply enmeshed with spirituality while encamping a total of three lunar mansions ranging from Magha to Purva and Uttara Phalguni respectively. This imagery is quite similar to the symbolism found within the archetypal tarot trump The Fool again.

This looks like the tarot trump The Hermit to me. Maybe that is a stretch for some to envision, but then again I’m weird like that.

In Magha we find this deep inheritance of powerful ancestral lineage where the wisdom given to us comes directly through cultivating ties to our pitris which in fact relates to our DNA. The gift most talked about as being bestowed is the ability to leave the body which some consider to be shamanism, trance like states, and the other key to opening our spiritual centers/chakras is via meditation.

Chakras work like our muscles requiring dedication to honor and cultivate our relationships with the Divine Masculine/Feminine, our ancestors, and ascended masters.

Magha nakshatra speaks to the family tree where anything done to help one identify their lineage is helpful. This Ketu ruled nakshatra sits precisely poised at points of gandanta between water and fire element signs. This bookmark placement asks us to pray to Ganesha to ensure necessary protection is achieved.

Other beneficial remedies many ascribe is pre-dawn sky gazing which is charged with positive vibrations and gardening to achieve solace and peace.

Senior Art Circa 1921
On the left great grandmother’s graduation photo and on the right I believe this to be my uncle who served in Vietnam, but I could be wrong.

It says my great grandmother was a member of Lend a Hand, Red Cross, and Armenian Relief Fund.

Ketu the South Node also known as the part of spirit allows for this transformation to occur. What this truly means is that this present now moment is powerful for any esotericist to deepen their spiritual practice to manifest their dreams. Whatever you yearn or desire to seed that can bring in wealth/prosperity is possible at this time. If you seize the opportunities presented to you.

You need to activate your self validation from now until around July 29, 2022 allowing for your friends, lovers, and family to let you be emotionally seen. We’re getting a boost from expansive Jupiter who acts as a luck giver for the necessary time to introspect because looking outward for emotional validation won’t bring in the proper harvest.

You need to harness your ability to be self reliant, autonomous, and self motivated to put in the work. The caution is to beware of burnout because the last thing you want to do is place excessive pressure upon your shoulders to achieve, win, and succeed at all costs by stepping upon others.

You might over the next few days court an unexpected opportunity. The current coming through at this time is that the family clan is buzzing on overdrive from within the hive mind.

If you’re worried about someone having your back know that the older generations bring your spirit guides closer to you, but it’s not necessary to dredge out nasty family skeletons or ignite bitter family feuds. Reconnect instead with your long lost missed family members.

If you are employed in the occult sciences now is a time to assist clients with cooperating with their departed, appreciating your his/her story, and diving deep into the realms of understanding mythology better especially the archetypal realms.

To get into the groove of this present now moment glance upon your natal chart locating which house is Leo as well as what planets might be there. For me this is commonly Sun, Jupiter, Regulus, and Mercury albeit as I’ve spoken about precession of the equinoxes we know that Regulus transpired to zero point Virgo if we glance from the Western perspectives.

What Watch’s View of the July New Moon 2022
I think that I would have really liked joining the Garden Club, but the other was quite shocking to find within the pages of my great grandmother’s yearbook.

If you can’t read what that lower right club is the name does not reference the KKK, but rather the Ku Ku Klan! You have to read it carefully to not make a mistake in context.
The French and Garden Club Circa 1921
Memorial Day 2022

The 10th House is the social standing, profession, fame/promotion, and achievements one has been born with. Nonetheless when we look at the Vedic we find that Leo is otherwise home to Saturn, Rahu, and Moon hence the Magha nakshatra status.

The 11th House is in fact traditionally associated with the water bearing sign of Aquarius channeling the flow of those with whom we share common interests, governs our hopes/dreams, and explores what wishes or goals we’d like to achieve.

For the personal spin on this little broken record playing or marching to its own drum this is when we set intentions for something we truly want be that a new chapter in our lives, a new job, or a new life direction.

The visualization is set to advancements and revelations especially those where we contact our inner guru in a time essential to closure, guidance, and relaxation. We want to deeply heal anything we have yet to release.

On a more collective/group level what we find is precisely this. Through locating our center in the midst of the intensity and distraction of outer experience we are able to seek and eventually connect with our inner intuitive self who is the source of all wisdom. Recognizing the wonder of our own individual uniqueness we realize that we hold within us an eternal wisdom that transcends time and space.

Our intuition is deep, immediate, not logical, and step by step we finally connect with her only when we open ourselves up to the wondrous potential of a type of multi-tasking that transcends the rational self. When we allow our innocence and wisdom to merge with each other we find that our understanding is healed. Work with guardian angel Nanael and daimon Caim.

Daimon Caim connects us to the Nine of Pentacles (symbolism explained), Sagittarius, Angel’s Trumpet, and Mercury. If you have anxiety then this daimon may be of benefit. Caim is helpful in confronting our fears helping us to realize a great many of them are groundless.

Other talents are assistance with reconciliation of strained relationships, gaining knowledge of Earth and all things found within her, and improving our communication with animals.

The Drama Club, Terquarts, and Near East Relief Circa 1921
Here we are looking upon an era butting against the Great Depression as well as WW II and we have bank adverts in high school yearbooks. Imagine that…
The graduation program was tucked neatly within the pages of the high school yearbook.

I’ve also noted that the astrology examples at my business website utilize the data of my departed ancestors as a way to remember them. Below you will see exactly what 1921 era may have been like directly before the Great Depression; something not too many may get to glimpse the way I have.

The Roaring Twenties:

I am issuing an abrupt trigger warning for information on the 1920s Russian famine. While this is an important part of collective history if you are at all sensitive to certain topics I advise that you don’t look at this website as a means to not be offended by the topic of starvation leading to cannibalism because throughout human history you will find plenty of recorded truth that this can occur.

I have included this due to the fact that this can happen in the present if people are unable to find food to eat and are dying of hunger. There are more enjoyable topics below, but shadow work means owning some of the monstrous sides humans are capable of becoming. Also, there is a quote that goes something like those who forget his or her story as in the past are doomed to repeat it!

This degree will benefit from working with Dumortierite while harnessing the attraction of luck, good health, and success by engaging with ancient, contemporary, and future traditions, customs, and ideals. Focus your time/energy upon your ability to evaluate people and situations through discernment that helps you intuit the best from what is available to you.

The affirmation is I am fully self aware and my status as well as self esteem are high. Do not forget that Asteroid Ceres is hovering nearby with a reminder to focus on nourishment and self care. Uranus is shaking up a lot presently, but collective destiny rises when faced with the unsettling especially if you follow a lion as your spirit guide.

While I’m still waiting on full time employment options and might be interviewing I’m hoping to make a brief post for the Lionsgate portal on August 8, 2022 as well. For us Leos such as myself who have our birthdays anywhere near this lunation including my mom we simply need to allow the Universe/Cosmos to do its thing once we set our intentions.

One of our focal points is to evolve this planet and society in a much higher direction because old establishments and ways of being must fall away. One of the vital meanings we find in the esoteric nature of Uranus is rising kundalini, an open Third Eye chakra, and exceptionally high levels of consciousness.

Poetry, Brail School of Music, Practice at Home Typewriters, East Side Music Shop, and The Girl’s Rifle Squad?
More banking adverts and when all else fails always inquire of the Question Box!

The advert literally reads all profit with no forfeitures or losses of any kind. Boy, does that sound kind of like false advertising!

If you want to express your highest destiny/truth working consciously with these vibrations is precisely what is needed in 2022. Things to expect include financial, agricultural, and environmental revolution, the rattling of long held beliefs, a great push for freedom by the people, increased food supply issues as well as general supply/demand problems, and natural resource fluctuations.

I noticed others who were cluing in at this time to the Beehive Cluster as well as the Evil Eye being cast. It’s always good to know that my Universal/Cosmic radar is on point. All of which resonate right back to someone legitimately hitting the bullseye when they stated this is the time to love thy neighbor as thyself!

Remember Leo is all about your heart as well as your spine. We know I covered my Dreamspell previously, but much like I did before with Genetic Matrix I’m going to see what the Dreamspell signature is for my Solar Return also known as my birthday today.

Because I’m exceptionally curious of what is the present now moment mojo! It appears that for 2022 I might want to be familiar with the Red Self-Existing Moon.

This fourth tone is a reference to Buddhist principles of standing apart from dependencies and the suffering that attachment brings by knowing that when we are self-existing we have personal autonomy emboldening ourselves to make our footprint instead of blindly following others.

This is the moment when a toddler takes their first steps as an aspect of individuation from their mother. Well post foot fracture and ankle ligament surgery I’ve officially learned “to walk” three times so I’ve got this one hands or is that feet down!

Bear with me as I’m struggling with proofreading some days or others WordPress mistakenly publishes on the wrong calendar date. Monday’s post was set to today which I had to correct before publishing today’s entry. Have a shoot for the stars New Moon in Leo! 🦁🌛✨

The local grocery store to not be named has decided to merchandise their water selection in honor of Kabbalah via the Tree of Life and the Tree of Death.

Now how many consumers won’t realize this because they’re not accessing their intuition and innerstanding of what might be a speculative time referencing the Aquarian water bearing age/aeon? 😲

Wisdom Wednesday’s: February’s 2022 Full Moon in Leo

“It is a beautiful and delightful sight to behold the body of the Moon.” – Galileo Galilei

This entry is a bit late as there were errands today as well as mom’s checkup doctor appointment. The doctor was late, and we parked near a karaoke bar due to limited parking nearby. Which meant the alcohol delivery held us up for nearly an hour when they parked their truck behind us. We had to go into the karaoke bar and one of the staff named Adam moved their Red Ford Mustang so we could play musical car shuffle into their parking spot from ours and get out of this parking lot jam as we still needed to grocery shop. It looked like one of the iPhone app game adverts that I get from time to time trying to empty a full parking lot of cars. No, I am not pulling your leg. His name was Adam as that is how he introduced himself to me. The cashier at the grocery store also rang all our produce up incorrectly (organic is not conventional) so it has been a very long day of purely silly.

The underlined hyperlink text will fly you to the Moon.

🌕 🌖 🌗 🌘 🌑 🌒 🌓 🌔

Our Full Moon in Leo occurred where I live at 10:56 AM CST at 27° 58’ which I am only being exact as it can thus be rounded up to the 28° symbolism. The first degree of every sign begins at 0° degrees 00 minutes of arc extending to 0° degrees 59 minutes of arc. This is the same analogy as a new born child at birth and the first year of their life. We celebrate the child’s first birthday a year later representing a child who has left their first year entering their second year of life.

Today we will look at the symbolism of both Leo 27° and 28°. For everyone this will be felt in different locations of their chart as mine is my natal 10th House (occupation, advancement, skill/trade, honor, and relationships to authority) in Western astrology and 11th House (patronage, hopes/dreams, wealth, opportunity to serve the collective, and impersonal group relationships) in Vedic astrology.

We have two T-Squares with the Moon, Sun, Asteroid Ceres, True Node of the Moon, and North Node involving Aquarius, Leo, Gemini, and Taurus. Also a Yod is involved between the Moon, Midheaven, Pluto, and Asteroid Pallas Athena with Leo, Capricorn, and Aries.

This T-Square exists between Fixed and Mutable signs. What do you do if/when your heart longs to be loved, but the love you seek is not forthcoming? These fleeting transits are little red flags for us to formally say goodbye to all of the illusions we hold onto especially our expectations. The truth is what you desired they can not deliver on. Collectively we missed something exceptionally crucial in understanding the nature of this relationship. We idealized and romanticized the other forgetting all those practical realities/responsibilities. Remember to love yourself now.

The Yod is calling us to finish our inner work harnessing the energy of the Hermit tarot card. We need to cultivate personal power while reaching out to the world with the knowledge or gnosis we have acquired. Then we plant the seeds which grow into collective wisdom. Seek the best road forward as Pallas Athena and this Yod are asking that you use sustained action to shine a light into the darkness to receive a reality check. It’s high time ancestral wounds be healed. Pallas Athena is about perceived patterns and inter-relatedness. If you’re a skilled juggler you can keep more objects in the air as in visualizing the whole which is then taken apart and re-assembled to recreate your reality.

27° Leo: A bleeding hand holding a thorny orange branch on which the fruit is growing.

Denotes one who will be compelled to gain experience through suffering, losses, and deceit. He/she is sincere/affectionate and willing to sacrifice much to help another. One is aided, patronized, advanced, and from their former sufferings their fame springs. It is a symbol of Approval.

How you choose to interact with the world in every passing moment is more important than concerning oneself with what lasts. This degree is at its best when being spontaneous as it unites and dances with the energy of the present now moment. One’s elusive and mysterious presence can attune others to the glory of life that exists beyond the illusions of mundane life.

How flimsy and insubstantial are the barriers between realms. These other planes of existence only seem difficult to reach because we are afraid to go there or we think of them as remote. In actuality they are here with us all the time. This degree carries a marvelous subtlety that helps to open others up to various realms of reality. Doing this without others being consciously aware of it as well as via a direct manner often creates enriching effects enhancing all of life. Work with guardian angel Sitael and daimon Vassago.

Full Moon in Leo February 2022 Per What Watch

Daimon Vassago ties with the Four of Wands, Jupiter, Aries, and Cedar (there goes that Cedar Fever allergy I have again) as well as Leek. Vassago is very useful for divination assisting with explaining the message in full detail as well as being ideal for improving conversational ability, social skills/confidence, and quickness of thought. I have read this daimon through correlation to Jupiter also ties to Chesed on the Tree of Life.

We could consider our present trajectory in society today by looking at our leadership for it is not Chesed (loving kindness or mercy of God) that they operate from. Chesed as a formless and void darkness of the Supernal Triangle gave rise to manifestation as form/light on the Pillar of Mercy. It is described as a loving mighty king during a time of peace who is magnanimous and benevolent sitting upon his throne. In this Kali Yuga we see a succession of leaders harnessing their ambitions and goals via the four vices of Chesed.

These include tyranny, bigotry, hypocrisy, and gluttony. Chesed operating via Jupiter as wealth, prosperity, and growth should be understood as spiritual and intellect. When we are in a time of war leadership operates via Geburah through violence which utilizes the vices of destruction through fear/anger, severity, and tribulation. Geburah and Chesed not utilized wisely is in fact done via the Qliphoth spheres of these two pillars. For more information on this daimon please look at my previous blog post where I wrote about Vassago.

28° Leo: A stream of oil falling from mid-air upon the troubled waters beneath.

Denotes one who will exercise discrimination in the affairs of daily life; one who will possess tact, understanding, diplomacy, and a peculiar magnetic aura which enables them to bring quarreling units to a peaceful union. It is a symbol of Conciliation

Life is deeply affected by how we look at it. This degree has the ability to approach existence in a way which makes everything more vivid and alive both for themselves and others. One has the power to awaken others to what truly is on a spiritual level becoming a light of hope to others through the intensity of their sincerity.

Performing this activity together reinforces and encourages each other. Value can only be realized after a basic assumption about what is let go of. This degree is about helping others to be here in the world, helping others to exert themselves, to use what they have, and to develop a more harmonious relationship to the material world. As we do this we also derive these same benefits. Work with guardian angel Sitael and daimon Vassago for this degree also.

The astro narrative of these degrees in the Sabian symbols begins by showing that the awakening does not occur all at once, but gradually it dawns upon you. We could envision a very tangled situation looms before us which is complicated by lots of intricate factors/details at which point we suddenly realize relatively speaking that all the extraneous gibberish is exactly that; rubbish. Could the curtain of gloom reveal life giving radiance hidden behind it? Could your disappointments be the best possible news or a blessing in disguise? Could your subliminal mind be manipulated by your leadership or others hoping to gain an underhanded advantage over you?

Could the music you listen to hide back masking that you’re unaware of, could the internet be a deceptive tool to manipulate your ability to think for yourself, or could your television be brainwashing you through propaganda and improper psychological handling? If you have a sense this message could be true then you are probably right; trust your gut! This is called impressionability which means you’re capable of being very easily influenced by others without any capability to maintain your sovereignty and set proper boundaries in life.

Hand Colored 3 of Cups W/Traditional Medicinals Tea Fortune (People Who Love Are Happy)

We’re sitting on three total fixed stars at this moment which includes Alfard in the neck of Hydra the Watersnake, Adhafera in the crest of Leo the Lion’s Mane, and Al Jabhah in Leo the Lion’s Main. Alfard is known as “The Solitary One” giving off an emotionally passionate nature which is threatened by perceived dangers/hazards. This fixed star bestows musical and artistic appreciation with a knowledge of human nature. The energy of Saturn exuded by this fixed star speaks to poisoning of the blood or murder by poisoning. Ptolemy stated this star references misuse of drugs and over indulgence in good living. Poisoning can happen in relationships as well such as within a marriage. The Euphrateans referenced the Hydra as a source of the fountains of the Great Deep. It is the Chinese lunar mansion known for recompense or that which compensates for an injury, harm, or damage inflicted.

The Leonids, a meteor shower, issues from the western point of Adhafera which means “The Funeral Pyre.” Clearwater, Florida baby here! This aligns to Magha nakshatra and the fixed star Regulus which I’ve explored countless times personally as I was born in this lunar mansion via my Vedic chart as well as written of in my blog posts. The symbol of Magha is the “The Mighty” a house of regents known as the Pitris, Forefathers, and spirits of dead ancestors ruled by Ketu. Kabbalists associate this with the tarot card Strength.

The Pitris and Strength:

Al Jabhah is known as “The Forehead” promoting love and benevolence while helping against enemies. One is not to hide or wait to be rescued and should seek healing remedies while tackling tasks with courage and strength. In fact this lunar mansion states those who cover their eyes and mouth are afraid to see/speak whereas a lion will give forth a mighty roar. Am I the only one seeing a correlation between the forehead and the Crown chakra. The forehead is where lower Buddhis or Cosmic consciousness resides.

The Planes?

Have a blessed Wednesday everyone. Much love! 🌇☄️😘

PS: I do recognize some of these links stem from a video game analogy. That is done simply for also the fact that it can be seen in light of analogous to the terms used in Kabbalah with pathworking. Lots of authors come up with metaphorical and/or homilitic examples to flesh out or elaborate examples for an audience. Growing up there was a specific video game I played that was abstract science fiction purely based and originating from Kabbalah which is why I see parallels of these themes elsewhere in life.

Teach Me Tuesdays: The Peacock/Peafowl as Totem Animal and Alchemy Symbol

The Beginning Stages of Mandala Coloring via iPhone App

Today was the arduous task of cleaning up my Pingbacks which had gotten wonky for lack of a better description. I will need to finish checking October/November of 2021 still, but at least I’ve made progress. This week has been way more productive than normal as I accomplish tasks not just related to my astrology business/blog which is always a positive. Far better than laziness or procrastination.

As a licensed aesthetician I feel more like this is shampoo, condition, rinse, and repeat, but ultimately it’s the representation of continuous renewal. The provided underlined hyperlink text will hopefully help expand awareness.

🚿🧼🧴🧽✨

If you’ve seen the peacock enter your life than you might desire to learn about the symbolism be it as a totem animal or within alchemy. Some of the key characteristics of the peacock as well as peafowl within the realm of spirit animals are:

  • Integrity
  • Living by defined principles
  • Flamboyance (being the center of attention)
  • Discernment
  • Proudly displaying your accomplishments

This symbolic bird holds a variety of meanings across a variety of cultures. For example, Hinduism has associated the peacock with Lakshmi corresponding to personal wealth, compassion, and patience. Asian cultures may likewise associate the peacock with Quan Yin who also ties to the virtues of compassion, kind-heartedness, and goodwill. In Christianity our feathered friend can be a sign of rebirth, rejuvenation, and immortality. Muslim mythology sees the peacock as a guardian of the Gates of Paradise. All the while in Egyptian mythology the peacock’s feathers often highly valued in religious ceremonies were said to be linked to the eye of Horus. In Greece the peacock was associated with the Argos, a monster with one hundred eyes which could see everything, which is not unlike modern symbols of the All Seeing Eye. Some associate this with the evil eye.

The energy of any peacock or peafowl is often immense offering a positive and negative impact based upon your level of Spiritual IQ. When anyone disregards mindfulness for arrogance the energy will backfire. If you have chosen to carry yourself with wisdom and dignity you can harvest untold rewards. The peacock asks that you capitalize on bringing beauty into the world even if you perceive yourself as imperfect. The peahen who is often not as bright and flashy as her male counterpart teaches us to embrace internal beauty/riches.

This grandiose bird teaches you to take on a role of leadership by taking charge of your life. This is not about being bossy rather it implies one lead by example. When a peacock or peahen struts into your consciousness it is to teach you about self love, maintaining proper balance between humility/confidence, and that you embrace your inner truth whatever that may be. In shamanism this lovely creature holds healing properties which draws negative energies from your life. Work with the peacock or peahen to improve your communication skills, discover hidden talents, make a positive impact on your community, and harness you inner strengths.

Alchemy often does not beat around the bush stating that the peacock is neither good nor bad for it relates to the soul of the world which is nature causing all things to be brought forth. Annually the peacock in alchemy renews its feather plumage in correlation with the changing seasons. When we change the manner with which we think our physical body transforms as well. The union of opposites can help with attaining higher states of consciousness.

Peacock:

Asteroid Peacock Persona Draconic Heliocentric Chart

Asteroid Peacock number 18727 is located at 7th House Cancer 14° via a Persona chart. I used the draconic and heliocentric method. The reasoning behind this being what all three represent.

Persona charts tell the drama of your individual energies, needs, strengths/weaknesses, and physical as well as psychological responses. You have an individualized way of going through life with your own unique path to consciousness. This new way of looking at your chart does not look at the whole, but considers its parts.

Take out a single one of these inner personalities and look at it closely keeping in mind that this is not the natal chart, but the chart of one independent persona within us.

Draconic charts present a lot such as karmic, spiritual, and unconscious desires pertaining to the soul’s destiny, fate, and soulmates. Some consider this chart to be key to your deep values, belief patterns, and individual purpose. What does your soul want to attain in the world, what areas of growth would you like to experience, and what do you subconsciously dream of becoming?

Heliocentric charts do not show the Sun sign which means it shows the Earth as a planet opposite the Sun. Aside from this chart showing Earth which can be studied, and I have done this previously for myself every other planet, house, and sign would be read the same as a Geocentric chart. My Earth is on the Anaretic degree of Virgo 1° which is very much near Regulus at Virgo 0° due to precession. A key focal point in my studies on my Vedic lunar mansion Magha’s relation to Regulus as a fixed star. But there are countless theories, concepts, and opinions regarding astrology when you actually dive into the deep end of a swimming pool.

The 7th House rules counseling and the legal systems. This house teaches that we are to let go of expectations of people in our lives being what we need/want them to be. We should stop embarking upon co-dependent enabling relationships. It is the house to express unity consciousness while integrating/unifying the opposites.

Cancer 14°: A crab climbing up an upright iron spear above which is a circlet of seven stars.

Denotes one who, never daunted by obstacles, opposition, and hardship, will rise by his/her own effort to a position of dignity and importance in his/her special sphere. Uniting an iron will to stubbornness of purpose one proves his/her worth and triumphs. It is a symbol of Irrefragability (archaic; indestructible).

We sit upon a degree which embodies one who is an accumulator of things. The fearful persona tends to be backward looking with an attachment to the past harboring nostalgia for distant times. The courageous persona has the ability to learn from what has been accumulated, to study it, see new aspects of it, and to let these findings be the foundation of a future of higher consciousness. The Chandra Symbol unlike the Kozminsky Symbol speaks of a collection of random rocks having no distinction as they have been worn smooth by water rendering them uniform.

The symbolism of these rocks rather than something such as butterflies implies that this degree is about one’s need for grounding and assessing what holds us back. What burdens and insecurities have you collected which prevent you from letting them go? When you process this through your emotional body the pain wears away released from suffering that you may fully comprehend the lessons that they have taught.

Work with guardian angel Vasariah and daimon Asmoday.

This is another daimon previously covered so I’m simply pulling up refresher information with some minor additions to spice it up since reading the same resources can get boring fast. Daimon Asmoday relates to the 6 of Swords, Sun, Aquarius, and Frankincense. Asmoday makes a magician physically stronger and mentally sharp. This daimon is feared as it works with lust and wrath. It is important to properly understand a wrathful deity!

The Final Result of Mandala Coloring via iPhone App

Wrathful:

As previously mentioned my birth year (1979) fell under Earth Sheep with Dianichi Nyorai. Esoteric Buddhism often utilizes gender/sexual union to teach of the merging of compassion (male) with wisdom (female) which leads to spiritual awakening. Often this is depicted as the wrathful male Buddha and his female partner standing in an ecstatic embrace with their hair painted fiery orange. They may have as many as eight heads looking in all directions, sixteen hands holding skull cups containing animals (in their eight right hands) and deities representing worldly elements (in their eight left hands).

This corresponds to Earth, water, air, fire, Moon, Sun, and the gods of death/wealth. Two of their four legs will be raised in a position of dance while lunging sideways with the other two. Wrathful male deities will also wear a garland of fifty severed heads while wrathful female deities will wear one of skulls. This matches my pottery day adventures as shown in previous blog posts. Even as I considered them to likewise represent ancestral veneration.

Asmoday is a teacher daimon necessary for learning a new computer code, math, and data processing with speed. Ask Asmoday to uncover your talents showing any areas of your money making potential.

This degree also falls along the very important fixed star Sirius in Canis Major the Greater Dog. It has been believed to correspond to high ambitions, honor, devotion, passion/resentment, and can create custodians, curators, or guardians. When compared with the Chinese lunar mansions it is known as the Well in the head of the Phoenix which can symbolize navigation at sea, hygiene, repairs, gardening, and moral uprightness. I’ve read that what it rewards is a studious nature rather than one who is idle.

Astrological Musings:

Have an exceptional Tuesday with the best of my wishes! Please support my business by way of a friendly donation or purchasing an astrology report. I will be returning to part time work shortly which may impose restrictions on my current blogging schedule which I will tweak some.

Due to medical costs we’ve incurred in 2022 the entire family will be working together to ensure we can return to debt free! I don’t want to disclose the amount or air all of our laundry. Anything at this point would help us out though as we’re in a bit of a pinch. 🤗🆘🎁

If You Need Me I’ll Be In Space…

Sign Spotlight Sundays: Beauty and the Beast

Leo – July 23 through August 22

Leo consciousness represents the identity which creates the birthplace of the individual and the self conscious human who emerges from this experience. Through Leo humanity becomes the five pointed star or Pentagram who represents the symbol of individualization, of humanity, of the human being who knows thyself to be an individual, and thereby becomes aware of thyself as the self. Ruled by the Sun this sign teaches how solarized sparks or solar angels incarnate in the 3D. Leo is identified as The King/Queen or as the life giver. We find the image of the lion is said to be a representative of the life giving father/mother principle, Spirit, and the nature of our center or heart through which all energy flows and all life emanates.

Leo is a position in the zodiac which rules individualization, initiation, and where our Soul consciousness is recognized within our heart. The ability to stand alone as a soul is essential to operate from a higher and more group conscious perspective. Solar fire and the fire we associate with Soul consciousness is thoroughly the fire of higher mind or higher manas. Leo becomes centered and balanced when it perfects the personality infusing it with soul energy in order to radiate love to another. The height of achievement for all of humanity is that of the human soul. It is here that self centered humanity finally becomes the Soul in life expression focused on the achievement of spiritual goals of selflessness.

Leo walks the path of self realization beginning with developing one’s ego thereby developing deeper spiritual purpose through expression of Divine Will and realization of self as a unique individual. Divine Will is expressed best through the qualities of open-heartedness, warmth, creativity, leadership, and love. Sovereign rulership over self is what the pride of the Lion stems from via the mental prowess of Leo. An evolved Leo is generous and outgoing meeting all kinds of responses through which the individual becomes more self conscious with each experience notably the negative and painful ones.

The most self aware sign of all it is Leo who knows he/she will determine his/her own destiny. Remember the Sun rules our entire solar system and is the ultimate local distribution agent for all the other planets. Neptune distributes energies from the heart of the Sun while Uranus distributes energies from the spiritual Sun.

From within esoteric Judaism and Christianity we see this best in the month of Av. Av literally means “father” and is derived from the etymology of “to will” or “to desire.” In Judaism it is believed that the Mashiach is born on the 9th of Av. Esoterically this month represents all the other souls of Israel meeting the soul of Mashiach who comes to redeem Israel from her state of spiritual as well as physical exile which is commonly depicted to us as akin to a groom unto his bride. After his birth on the 9th of Av he reveals himself to his bride and betroths her on the 15th of Av.

The letter Teth resembles a womb and equals 9 in direct correlation to the 9 months of pregnancy. In the month of Av the duration of these same 9 months becomes condensed and concentrated into 9 days. Hebrew refers to Leo and the Lion also as aryeh symbolizing the superrational power of Divine Will. The initial manifestation of will to destroy the Temple was in truth purely for the sake of reconstructing the Temple with all of its spiritual meaning and significance for Israel as well as the entire world to stand for eternity.

Av governs the sense of hearing. “To hear” in Hebrew means “to understand” or to fully integrate into one’s consciousness via the heart and mind. In order that one actively listen to another he/she is to fully understand his/her dilemma and empathize with him/her. The sense of hearing is likewise a sense of inner balance which behaves as the foundation of rectified existence. Av also controls the left kidney. Our left kidney advises us on how to properly hear and integrate truth into one’s consciousness. The two kidneys are the “male” and “female” advisors of the Soul. The right kidney advises on how one is to rectify their character traits through a process of careful introspection while the left kidney advises on how one is to absorb truth into one’s consciousness

There are some negative symbolic meanings associated with lions as well within spirit animal/totem meanings which mainly pertain to its haughty nature. A lion is an effective killer although usually not confrontational. They generally prefer a peaceful life. Lions also believe in family and they take care of their young. You will find that lions hunt in groups symbolic of the fellowship of strength and safety to be found within such practices. Lion’s symbolic meaning is varied and ranges from a predator, adversary, an object of fear, and to also an object of respect.

The mountain lion was known variously to the different Native American tribes as a cougar, puma, panther, etc. Native Americans revered this animal while simultaneously competing with it for game. In the Keres Creation account the Mountain Lion guarded the Shipap or the pre-emergence place. In Tewa traditions the supernatural beings living in Sipofene or the pre-emergence place sent a man to explore the upper world. He returned to Sipofene as a Mountain Lion. For the Zuni the Mountain Lion was the beast God associated with the direction of North. They respected the presence of these awesome beasts. Of all of the cat’s qualities these tribes respected the animal’s silence viewed as a holy state of consciousness. They quietly beheld the grace and the Glory of their Creator through the silence of these beasts. The elders in these cultures believed that a cat’s silence spoke of the words of a Great Mystery and despite their potential threat they were not only respected as predators, but also protected by them.

The presence of the lion is found all over in Indian mythology, religion, and the history of ancient India. Narsimha who is Lord Vishnu in the form of half lion and half man is sent by the Gods to destroy the evil on Earth and restore peace and Dharma. Hindu texts associate the lion as a symbol of Vishnu and Parvati.

In Japan the Guardian Koma-inu of the Shinto shrine is a lion and these guardian statues were depicted with comical expressions. Kara-shishi is the lion of the lion dance and a favorite image of the Edo Art period. Koma-inu, like the Kara-shishi, are fierce and protect their young cubs with devotion. These qualities have made them ideal protectors of shrines. The lion dance in Chinese culture pays homage to the symbolism of the lion as a representation of the Han Dynasty as well as strength and nobility.

Egypt’s Aker lions represent “yesterday” and “tomorrow” shown back to back facing opposite directions flanking the Egyptian Sun disk or Aten emblematic of the Source or Higher Self teaching us to focus on the eternal “now” moment.

Even the title of this blog post is to reference the meanings found within the Strength tarot card of a maiden’s gentle hands controlling the passions and animal instincts by Spirit working through her.

Teach Me Tuesdays: North Node and South Node

Sanskrit Karman – Act, Action, and Performance

When discussing astrology whether it is tropical or sidereal both take into account a fictional or imaginary planet or node. For me personally I believe a lot of time could be spent here alone in study. On tropical astrology it is widely different than when I look at sidereal actually for myself. While it may seem as if I suffer self absorption in how often I study my own charts it is quite the opposite, and my explanation for my logic may fall on deaf ears. I can not make everyone like me after all. My time spent in studying my own astrology charts as well as those of others is the fact that I believe in the phrase “know thyself” both strengths and weaknesses. It is an actionable goal then to take that knowledge and improve one’s self with it.

I have been itching to do this study/post. It is long, but I believe worth your time.

So if you believe I suffer narcissism I ask you to reconsider your stance and instead question if it is not my desire to better myself that makes me involved in studying my natal charts or the charts of others to help them improve their lot in life. Lately it is very easy to project labels onto others and play finger pointing blame games due to cancel culture. We learn best by example and thus we are picking up negative habits without conscious awareness. Ironic this act shows three fingers point back at the accuser of the wrong. That should warrant caution in who you attack! What I instead see is people slinging snow balls at each other not in an act of play, but in an act of war with severe consequences for those actions and beliefs.

There are are two lunar nodes in tropical astrology acting as an intersection between the ecliptic and the orbit of the Moon. These nodes deal with your spiritual journey of your soul past, present, and future holding the keys to lessons you learned or are yet to learn. This is important within karmic astrology for those who believe in reincarnation as well as those who wish to treat these nodes as their past and future in this present lifetime.

The North Node reveals your soul journey towards growth! Here we find the traits you desire to develop in this incarnation to grow the most. Yet this process is not easy. In the natal chart your North Node indicates the challenges and struggles of the first part of your life which gets easier after the age of 30. The South Node represents your past showing your karmic strengths where you will usually excel as you have a lot of experience already here. You are very comfortable in this placement, but this doesn’t help you grow. Hence why we are told to step out of our comfort zones. You are supposed to focus on your North Node despite the strong pull to fall back on the South Node. The lunar nodes spend in each sign approximately 18 months with an orbital period is 18.6 years. They are directly opposite each other and they are always retrograde.

If I was to look at my mom’s tropical chart and compare it to mine we would find my mom has her North Node in Libra with the South Node in Aries while I have my North Node in Virgo and my South Node in Pisces. I am not going to explore the houses at this time, but perhaps we can explore that at a later time and date. I picked this combination because I was named after my mom and our birthdays are only three days apart. People also have a tendency to confuse us for sisters which is to her benefit as it is a compliment that she still looks younger than her age!

Libra North Node vs Aries South Node:

Libra to Aries Polarity is About Balancing Me and We

Libra Keywords: partnership, marriage, and learning they do not need to do everything alone because others are here and in their life to help them

Aries Keywords: self-sufficiency, independence, and believes they do not need help from others as they are competent in anything they set out to accomplish

My mom’s life mission this incarnation is to learn that her actions and everything said by her affects the people around her while she can be utterly oblivious to the impact this has on another. In fact she may not care how it affects those around her putting her on the wrong trajectory. By becoming entirely aware and completely considerate of her actions and words she will better be able to build the friendships and the partnerships that are necessary to her overall growth in this life.

Partnerships and relationships will not come to her while stagnated in her Aries South Node way of doing things. When she learns to think less about herself and more about the needs of others she begins to attract many people into her life who will help her, bless her, and who make her life so much easier for her to live. This requires her to stop being self-centered and selfish. Which I think she has accomplished.

Virgo North Node vs Pisces South Node:

Virgo  to Pisces Polarity is About Balancing Analytical Mind and The Dreamer

Virgo Keywords: helping those weaker or who do not know how to do things for themselves, teaching, serving others fulfills my life

Pisces Keywords: less structure and routine, less selflessness or sacrifice of one’s wants/needs, and less focus on healing others

This incarnation for me is full of an endless pursuit where I continually serve other people and want to make them happy. With the North Node in Virgo I have somewhat of a selfless quality where I will give a lot of myself to the world around me because I do not find value in myself unless I help others. Structure and routine are vital to me. I need to have structure and routines in my life to stay sane.

Therefore I prefer to plan my life accordingly and may not be spontaneous. For example, if someone calls me up right now to say, “Hey, let’s go have XYZ,” I tend to refuse because the event wasn’t planned ahead of time and I may have something else to attend to. And I do realize this can be really annoying! My apologies again. You will find I apologize a lot also. A habit I picked up somewhere and have not let go of! I have had people point this out to me a lot to make me conscious of the fact.

Now let us look at this through the lens of sidereal astrology. I am born into Magha as mentioned in previous blog posts and this will be of importance for myself with regards to Ketu who I am continuously learning about. It is almost a strange obsession now. And this makes sense for those following my blog who also noticed my mention previously of my studies on Jupiter in my astrology chart. You will see how this shapes my present goals and where I need help.

Wisdom Wednesdays: Making the Unconscious Mind Conscious

The constellations governed by Ketu are Ashwini, Magha, and Moola. Through Vedic astrology we find the North Node is known as Rahu and the South Node is known as Ketu. The South Node or Ketu is often considered to be a point of difficult karma from one’s past life where one has reaped the results of a selfish and egotistical set of deeds in their past. The higher equivalent of Ketu represents a tendency towards moksha or liberation with mastery of secret mysterious knowledge.

Rahu and Ketu are famous for very unexpected outcomes. Both Rahu and Ketu are 180 degrees apart. The professions advised for Ketu include, but are not limited to magician, medical nurse or doctor, and astrologer. Rahu and Ketu indicate our karmic and spiritual influence in the natal chart. I have seen by some allotted the sign Sagittarius as the house of exaltation for Ketu while others believe Ketu to be exalted via Scorpio. Debilitation may be found in Gemini or Taurus. Ketu is considered strongest within Jupiter and known for spirituality.

Any person influenced by Ketu will be gifted with spiritual achievement with strong interests towards religion and secret awareness of supernatural powers or paranormal related subjects. These individuals may have great healing power. Periods allotted generally for a Ketu Mahadasha is seven years. When Ketu is placed favorably in any natal chart it brings a lot of luxury, wisdom, and intuition to that individual. If unfavorable Ketu is prone to causing unnecessary depression, lack of concentration, and unreasonable anxiety.

My mom has her Ketu in Aries with her Rahu in Libra while I have my Ketu in Aquarius and my Rahu in Leo.

Ketu in Aries vs Rahu in Libra:

Looking at the Dragons Head or Tail is Like Flipping a Coin

Aries Keywords: self, ego, physical body, perceptions of self by others, and paternal grandparents

Libra Keywords: romantic relationships, business partnerships, equal exchanges between two people, maternal grandparents, nieces, and nephews

Success comes when my mom accepts situations that keep showing up in her life such as a call to action, competitiveness, assertiveness, and leadership gracefully rather than begrudgingly. This is because she is well versed at following her instincts. As soon as she refrains from trying to avoid these situations she will create situations which are peaceful, co-creative, and harmonious! She excels at being tactful, honest, diplomatic, and a stellar mediator. She must learn that action and leadership are to be taken on when required and that one must risk some people not “liking” them in life.

Ketu in Aquarius vs Rahu in Leo:

Looking at the Dragons Head or Tail is Like Looking at an Ouroboros

Leo Keywords: spiritual beliefs, teaching, publishing, broadcasting, short/long distance travel, father, in-laws, and step-children

Aquarius Keywords: communication, listening, learning, work performed with the hands, siblings, neighbors, and cousins

I am that person who knows how to get ahead in society and may seem to others as a quirky scientist conducting bizarre experiments at large. I am more inclined to be laughed at or see my ideas rejected by others who won’t appreciate them or me until years later. Ketu wants me to brood about the collective and networks, but the Universe has a sense of humor and my life always go awry.

You can find me rejected for my contributions thus pushed towards Rahu in Leo where I must shine alone only as an individual. I toggle emotional and intellectual expression and am forced to step into the limelight whether I like it or not. In this role I am to accept everyone projecting their love and hate combined on me.

Do whatever it is I excel at while I embrace my emotional outbursts as the collective will then project their own stuff onto me positive and negative polarity while I have to somehow learn to not take it personally and realize doing this in fact helps to heal collective wounds as I am great at being the example of not allowing my ego to be fed by the opinions of another as I do not suffer much when I am being criticized. Although I believe I need to work on this. I still feel a bit wounded when I am excessively unappreciated or under valued by others! I imagine that is part of being human.

Jupiter is in my 10th House whether it is tropical or sidereal astrology which helps me advance my career. I can have a bright career and become very successful at what I do. I must guard against arrogance and being overly status oriented. I have a tendency towards leadership roles or my life may play out as a teacher or a hairdresser/cosmetologist for examples.

You will find this placement makes me ambitious and career focused. It is also common to find that I will have high moral standards, but as with anything it is best to maintain detachment. Ketu likes to remove certain benefits to keep one in check as I like to call it through liberating them from their ego. Many see Ketu as a malefic which it is not. Ketu simply is a bit of a strict teacher in life and many dislike this while others such as myself grow to love Ketu for the blessings we have received!

Hopefully I did pretty good at explaining these concepts, however, if you have questions please leave me a comment so I can assist you with answers. As I have stated I believe one could study this topic for quite some time and find a wealth of new perspective as long as they remain open minded to accept new opinions in the realm of astrology instead of closed off or threatened by something different.
