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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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? 😲

Manifestation Mondays: Writing Your Own Fantasy Plot That Reshapes the Stories You Tell About Yourself

What Sunglasses Can See Inside Your Eyes?

Suspend all judgments and just go with this random blog entry even if it appears to make no sense to you. The provided underlined hyperlink text is meant to flesh out today’s unusual tale.

🧚🏻‍♀️🦄👹🕶📜

I recently stated that it was about time for us to try telling new mono-myths or hero/heroine tales because I think that our consciousness is pretty bogged down by us always re-making or re-telling what has often already been done which puts a damper on infinite possibilities that would otherwise open up to us all. So I’m going to try something a little different today.

Fantasy as a genre is often exciting not just for the audience, but also the writer due to the fact that it actually does open new doors we would otherwise be unable to open with classic fiction. The more common archetypes we find in fantasy revolve primarily around the superhero, fairy, queen, witch/wizard, etc. It can be set entirely in a fictitious world or we can imbue Earth with magical elements. A few years ago I took the Know Your Archetypes online quiz receiving the Explorer archetype for what it’s worth. I thought today would be good to use a prompt I’ve thought of and invite others to do the same.

Today we are tackling what would you do if you had x-ray vision complements of a little jaunt I did when I was healing years ago. I managed across a unique asteroid named Photographica which is numbered 443 that I could plot into my chart. If we think about what an x-ray actually is then this little asteroid would provide some insight especially if we wanted to tell a fantasy story about a character who desired the ability to see space for example without the need to become an actual astronaut. What if this character found another way to sense what was happening in the cosmos without having to physically step foot on a space station? Let’s say they can intuit the energies and then retrieve the image psychically. It’s not meant to be serious because fantasy is built upon our imagination.

The idea behind this for me actually came from reading about spirit photography which is also commonly called thoughtography or thermography where one may have an ability to use their thoughts to burn out images on physical objects or even into the mind of another person. For a while this was chalked up to extra sensory perception, clairvoyance, and such. I have to quip in that the concept to me is not entirely one of airy fairy woo because there are countless images I’ve seen in my life that are metaphorically burned into my memory which range a large swathe of triggers based upon their subject matter in terms of if they are uplifting or angering, depressing, and traumatic memories which they stir up within me.

It’s important to note that this is widely believed to be the work of frauds by critics which stems from investigations where some find the experimenters of these “theories” as we shall call them today have been inebriated with alcohol or consciousness altering substances that created disorders, psychopathic/sociopath temperaments, and a lack of self control due to a loss of inhibitions.

Where most people will attribute this is from Japanese horror taking it’s origins in Yokai particularly Onryo. It neglects the fact that our human mind does have what some have professed to be a “photographic memory.” Could we find deeper meaning if we wanted to that explains this mythology? Furthermore, how would we create a new story or fantasy that explains how one works with Cosmic or Universal energy? What if the story took on a theme where the characters were more like those in Noh and they even wore masks to tell their stories? Could the story even have something to do with my explanations around Magha with ancestor veneration in our many cultures particularly Eastern or what is perceived as those who enjoy ghost hunter tales?

I actually took the time to attempt an online test for this talent, but as with all personality tests I like to take them with a small grain of salt since I’m not sure they are always accurate. I might chalk this up to my blog post, however, on learning styles where I had visual spatial acumen. My result is below, and I’m sure the percentage is off or meant to fluff someone’s ego up a bit for better/worse. But I also enjoy being humored sometimes. I’m human; I think!

Why is it Always 1%? WTAF?! 🤯

Magha Nakshatra, Obon, and Mulian:

My first word was not what I would call a normal first word as a child. I’ve actually spent some time researching the etymology over the years in an attempt to grapple with what I possibly desired to convey as my mom stated I seemed to express this word quite often when I began speaking as a first word. Her assumption was that I had a speech impediment and meant to be saying banana, but when I dig deep enough I think my consciousness meant to elucidate something else. What was that word that first erupted from my vocabulary and mouth. Baana(h)!

One will find variants of Baana(h) in the Bible. The metaphysical component is as follows. Baana(h) illustrates how giving way to perceived affliction/sorrow works out the greater evil in our life. Suffering and that which appears evil works out for our good when we become established in strength, love, and truth by refusing to be daunted by our apparent error conditions. When we rise out of this state of consciousness through exercising our higher self we develop an enduring attitude allowing for patience to have its perfect work. Disharmony and error may appear to abound in life’s affairs yet a spirit of fairness realizes that any apparent evil is in fact the out picturing of past error sowing done by the individual. Patient continuance regardless of appearances establishes peace consciousness described in the Bible as gathering victuals for King Solomon’s household. It is believed that this brings forth Zadok (righteousness or a strong belief in the right relation of things) to heal the soul/body.

The more arduous journey was when I found this in Hindi, but it directed me towards the following word; बाना. Which required me to do some slightly more skilled investigations. Below is what I’ve turned up in my journey towards answers. For a first word you can tell I was not a normal baby who emerged into the 3D, and many did not realize this even myself till I learned around age 30 to ask questions and seek answers. At 42 I have a better grasp of what is or has been occurring each day that I keep taking the time to apply myself to self study! Which is why I wanted my astrology and esoterics business to gain support as well as take off.

So easy a child could understand and speak of it with others unaware of why she said it as her first word! And how it took her so long to desire to figure this out while explaining it to others she does not even know and has yet to meet online.

Back to asteroid Photographica on another Sidereal chart. We happen to be sitting in the 8th House of Scorpio at 0° which has significant meanings. This asteroid while useful for showing the importance of photography and visual images indicates that “photographic” also relates to the brain’s ability to retain and interpret visual imagery. This Anaretic Degree implies one is to “Master” something. What is the 8th House and what do we know about Scorpio? I hope this description can best summarize this for my audience.

The 8th House is a major healing house for those who are completely out of control which may be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, economic, and even technological. This house rules our connection with our soul group and will often indicate a violent death in our past life which caused us trauma. We can experience psychic dreams, out of body experiences, past life regression studies, near death experiences, and a strong intuitive connection with spirit guides. Our attitude towards death is one of reincarnation as well as the belief in life after death liberating ourselves from fear. Liberation can come with death as we become channels for helping others cross over.

SCORPIO 0/1

A tunnel through a mountain.

When darkness comes you need more darkness if you’re ever going to find the light. As the struggle of Earth existence descends upon you, you must find a way to harness the power of that struggle to turn death into rebirth. But it is so pressurized and absolutely relentless a path to walk. Everything you meet reflects the same destiny and dilemma. For you are being pulled through the collective nightmare by an immense evolutionary force and that means feeling everything, experiencing all of it, and letting everything go. Those pulled in to such a radical track develop core perseverance magnificently and learn to be light while super heavy as well as to stay loose while bearing down in tight passages. Eventually glorious things happen and you can emerge into a whole other reality knowing how purposeful every step has been and that all of it was necessary and redemptively built. A character strength of a mighty fiber as you knew it would be.

This degree showcases one’s ability to stand apart from the world around them gaining a broader perspective/sense of the whole. This invulnerable quality helps them to live beyond the stress and discord of life, but most of the rest of humanity believes they suffer from an inability to connect with them on any level as they’ve mastered detachment. They care not how difficult something may be knowing that it will work no matter how much effort they have to put forth. Aware of all of life’s obstructions and of everything blocking their path they retain a belief that everything is attainable even if that means having to tunnel through a mountain. Note that the negative space of any tunnel is shaped like a snake. This degree proclaims, “I will not be stopped, I will go where I please, and I am willing to pay the price to get to wherever I feel I need to be.” Work with guardian angel Eyael and daimon Amdusias.

Daimon Amdusias connects with the Five of Swords, Venus, Aquarius, and Sandalwood. Amdusias is a spirit of the Earth who brings one close to the spirits of nature. This daimon guides one in dreams to the great forests from which the trees are flowing in beauty and ancient wisdom. For me I’m laughing as I compose this because I slept last night to meditation music of rain in a forest with the sounds of crickets and birds which I hoped to sleep to again tonight as it meant I had an extremely peaceful/restful night. Ultimately I’ve read this daimon’s highest skill is in music whereby the instruments are heard yet not seen.

It is said that Amdusias is valuable for pursuing personal interests, honing one’s craft, and achieving financial success. I, honestly, read the blog years ago around 2017 of someone who worked with this daimon when I briefly picked up Goetia for a short time and dropped it who stated working with this daimon allowed them to hear a change in the nature meditation song they often listened to. They could hear the sound of an animal walking through the rain and eating the leaves. Mind you it’s been said this daimon may appear as a unicorn.

Remember what I said about a fantasy of x-ray vision. This degree lands on Miaplacidus in the keel of Argo. This fixed star lies in the Carina subdivision as well as within the alpha star of Halley Carolinum’s oak which was named after a tree that King Charles II hid in. This constellation idea fell out of favor within 50 years of it being related to the English monarchy.

It is unclear if the name Miaplacidus has any connections with the root word Miyah meaing pregnant virgin in French, sacred temple in Japanese, or some suggest a derivative of Meah.

Here are some images of what this area of space looks like for our Manifestation Mondays fantasy prompt. Enjoy and have an out of this world Monday! 🌌🏹🌠

Fun Quote Fridays: Liberty/Freedom

Solar Eclipse 2017 Wedding Ring

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

  • Charlotte Brontë

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

  • Coco Chanel

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”

  • Mahatma Gandhi

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.”

  • Abraham Lincoln

“The first duty of a man is to think for himself.”

  • Jose Marti

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

  • Henry David Thoreau

“I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery.”

  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau

The underlined hyperlink text brings up some questions for us to ponder; which one is sitting on my shoulder giving me advice exactly? 👼 or 😈?!

I decided upon this set of quotes when I began to notice the theme in my astrology chart surrounding “liberty/freedom” as I have been blogging. I see it in guardian angels I have researched, my ring, and when I slept to the audio of the Tibetan Book of the Dead or cited the following link recently in a blog post. Blogging seems to help me unravel my own hang ups or goals I am otherwise not entirely conscious of. Hopefully being an example will help others do the same as they will see some benefit to my astrological or spiritual musings as strange as they may appear.

I further saw this within my Vedic chart thanks to my natal nakshatra within Magha. My Ketu is Aquarian. Pitris represent our Divine ancestors also referred to as solar pranic energies who assist us on our journey from body to body. The purpose of this relationship is intended to remind us about our eternal connection to the continuity of life encouraging us to become more detached.

Pitris teach us about our cosmic spiritual essence which continues to live and travel through the cosmos even after the death of our body from life to life until it reaches final emancipation. Our Divine spark and Divine roots ask that we acknowledge our duties towards the material world which should be fulfilled with devotion and detachment. Our thoughts, actions, and words contribute to shaping the future.

Magha nakshatra inspires us to seek spiritual freedom from material bondages while honoring our roots and remaining responsible to the world that we come from. Moon in Magha desires for us to honor this sacred connection rather than try to be isolated from it which can make our ego too strong.

The ruling planet of Aquarius is also Saturn. Ketu and Saturn are friendly to one another. Saturn acts as significator of detachment from materialism while Ketu is associated with spiritual liberation. Those who are born with Ketu in Aquarius are quite erudite understanding the realities of life.

In honor of this blog post feel free to utilize your astrology software or Astro.com for a free extended chart to plot Goddess Libera in your natal, transit, and progression. Libera is asteroid 771.

For me this Goddess is placed in my natal 11th House Virgo 12°, transits my 8th House Gemini 8°, and progresses to my 12th House Libra 1°. I studied Goetia briefly before I put it down. Today I will add some information on the daimon associated with each degree for those who prefer this route. Mostly I was investigating the daimon for my birth when I learned my birth guardian angel was Nith-haiah. I complain about being solitary and unnoticed. Meanwhile I have Glasya Labolas with the 8 of Wands, Mercury, Sagittarius, and Rosemary. I read somewhere this daimon acts like you have a cloak or cap of invisibility and ensures you are not overly materialistic. So I have a Romulan Bird of Prey?! Exactly when did this happen; scratches her head. 🤯

Glasya Labolas can be invoked to ensure what you’re doing is kept secret making you “invisible.” This daimon will make you wise to what is really going on around you while ensuring your friends and enemies are unsuspecting. This daimon is ideal for execration/binding, but also keeps your projects secret from noisy coworkers or competitors.

The 11th House deals with one’s aspirations, everything that has to do with friends or people in authority, philosophy/religion, idealism, speculation, and understanding of other people. Often the 11th House focuses on organizations which are humanitarian based.

The 8th House rules death, occultism/magic, sexuality, inheritances, and that which we must let go of. This can be considered one of the best mentors to teach us about life and it’s meaning.

The 12th House holds the subconscious/unconscious, secrets, self knowledge/gnosis, and deals with seclusion. Loss, isolation, hospitals, prisons, hidden enemies, fear of death, illness, and self undoing are featured here. These collective realms of life include neighborhoods, organizations, and the world in general.

VIRGO 12

A dog sniffing a dead animal.

Searching for clues, you probe the straight line and the intricate curve, tapping the mind’s powers for intricate operations. Prone to find the pathological, the destructive, and the inverted, the bloodhound sleuth checking everything out everywhere. Curious, fascinated, alive with speculations, hunches, notions. Wanting to track something down, to get resolution. Needing to know, poking about in the dark. You possess remarkable senses and an almost purely telepathic mind, tremendously skilled and adroit. But you can get poisoned by skepticisms and by too heavy an exposure to the dark underbelly of things. Desperate to learn how to also accept and embrace all that is, unconditionally, to let go into rightfulness and goodness in the very thick of things being rotten and pervasively wrong.

This degree shows that one is acutely aware of the forces of entropy/decay. One grasps the reality where everything eventually winds down, loses energy, and falls apart. When you struggle against this inappropriately you actually wear yourself out with futility trying to remedy what needs to be let go of as well as allowed to disintegrate. This degree indicates that the insights one born on this degree has into what is going wrong can be invaluable and used as a basis to effect renewal/rejuvenation. Work with guardian angel Caliel. The associated daimon to work with is Bathin.

Bathin corresponds to the 10 of Pentacles, Venus, Virgo, and Mistletoe. What I have read online invoking Bathin before travel ensures a smoother journey. Kitchen witchery gets you further with Bathin than ceremony/ritual! With regards to travel Bathin is also helpful with astral projection. Kabbalah teaches that the true secrets of our cosmos are only revealed to those willing to enter the various elements of the astral planes of which the allegorical Tree of Life is supposed to symbolize. Buddhism teaches that this can be reached via meditation and self realization.

GEMINI 8

A chandelier which holds lit candles.

Creative self-hood lights up the world. The brightness lies in the realization of being all things, becoming all things. It is everywhere at once. Nothing is linear, nor consecutive. The spinning upon an axis of power. Joy lies in making the connections, in being a resource, in bringing the situation to what it can be. All is activated, mobilized. Your potential is actualized by being all-inclusive and keeping every side of life in your sights. Lit up from within, having a place to shine.

This degree gives forth light by which collective humanity can see what is around them. This luminous degree assists others in seeing their way forward while giving as much as it can to those in need. Finding within itself what is needed to serve the situation at hand this degree can often be surprised at what can come forth from the depths of self at the right moment when the need arises. Work with guardian angel Habuhiah and the daimon Belial.

Belial corresponds to 6 of Swords, Sun, Aquarius, and Mullein. The little bit I have read online this daimon influences how others view or perceive you. I have read for some this has included the creation of a new website, a better job with better paying clients, and new “spirit” friends; but there is a catch. It comes after your life is shaken up by a healthy dose of chaos. Belial has also been known by some to work with one’s finances particularly ensuring troublemakers pay you back if they owe you money (particularly banks or other institutions). This usually revolves around bank loans, alimony, etc.

This can also occur at the national level by disrupting malicious power structures.

I have likewise read Belial assists in freeing one from tyranny and oppression. If we consider the traditional Devil tarot card your chains of bondage are revealed to you and you are given the power to break them.

The three most practical applications of Belial’s powers are:

  • Free yourself from any form of bondage such as toxic relationships, dead end employment, and drug addiction.
  • Advance your career with recognition as an authority.
  • Defend yourself against political oppression and tyranny.

Interesting… Although now I have Sia stuck in my head also! Thanks Chandra Symbols for mentioning chandeliers.

LIBRA 1

A group of fat Italian ladies preparing bread.

Archetypal, universal, and diffuse allegiances, activities, and realms of experience. Becoming camouflaged perfectly by adopting a persona that is wondrously engaging and easily connected with. Putting it on a bit heavy, thick grease paint. You exult in getting away with seeming to be the world’s most anonymous person, the disguise can stick to the face. Overt consciousness awash in mass identification, at times you are able to penetrate through and find open possibilities, but you are primarily engrossed in the outer. And alive to the advertised sensations of what it is like to be popular, well-received, and simply welcome wherever you go as part of the mix, and no problem at all.

This degree has the ability to find the easiest most direct ways of relating to the world around it as well as with other people. Here one wants everyone to feel nourished, included, and to have a good time. One mixes so very well with all other types of energies and degrees that they function as a kind of lubricant that makes everything run more smoothly through their ease of connecting with what is inviting. This degree imbues one with a simple and elusive beauty which can mutate into what will best serve the purpose of enhancing interactions with others. Work with guardian angel Aniel and daimon Phenex.

Daimon Phenex corresponds with the 2 of Wands, Moon, Aries, and Roses. Phenex is ideal for work with creative muses. Invoke Phenex during fire baptisms and rebirth rituals including creative path working. He’s described as motivational; some say he lights a fire under your bum to get you moving (out with the old/in with the new)!

Is Phenex at all related to phoenix?!

Manifestation Mondays: Bibliomancy with Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales Introduces the Fir Tree

“Don’t Tame Your Wild!” – Cybele

🌗🚀

I can’t remember what email was sent to me, but while I was sick I received an email from someone which may have been connected with the Moon Readings I receive that told me I excel at Bibliomancy for divination. Potentially Bibliomancy is divination by interpreting a chosen passage at random from within a book or text; it was often done with the Bible. I will admit I do greatly enjoy the practice in trying to understand what perhaps my mind is sending me from time to time to gain focus on. Today I decided to open the large book above the fireplace of fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen which opened to the Fir Tree (PDF at the link). I’ve never even heard of or read this story so I’m excited to share with you something new even to myself. I will state that when trees show up in my awareness as a symbol I take significant notice due to my studies of Celtic tree asrology, Kabbalah’s Tree of Life, and Wicca.

Essentially trees have very potent messages for me if brought to my awareness. That is why I honed in on mom and I being Holly under Celtic astrology or ogham while I inherited a California king oak bed from my grandparents (Oak/Holly King). The Ogham being another tool I’ve used for divination. In my studies of my Vedic lunar mansion I watched an astrologer explain the Magha lunar mansion fully telling me that it is the grandparents for anyone born into this lunar mansion who have an extremely close tie to their grandchildren and that often those born into this lunar mansion will inherit a piece of furniture that is a family heirloom with ancestral roots they’ve lost. I resonated this to my maternal great grandmother who inspired me to become a cosmetologist choosing to follow in her footsteps as she worked for Clairol, Revlon, etc.

I realize that I also remember being 5 years old, crawling in my mom’s lap, and crying on her shoulder at her funeral to this day. Perhaps this is due to her helping my mom raise me in my early years. What we can see is that this is shown in Reiki as well regarding our karma/dharma. According to Vedic astrology Magha nakshatra is a significant lunar mansion managed via Ketu and relates to the fixed star Regulus which moved into Virgo from Leo. It ranges entirely through Leo and Virgo. When this occurred it was also an Anaretic Degree which as mentioned yesterday implies one is to “Master” something to make the transition. This is not easy because Ketu Mahadasha is often by all accounts of those I talk to perceived as a literal hell on Earth.

When I attempted to use Twitter before dealing with crypto scams or people pushing porn at me/my business allowed for me to network briefly with Vedic astrologers long enough to know they generally don’t like people ruled by Ketu so I was not welcome there. A very frustrating experience because I was left with a select few Twitter friends/followers from Belgium, Poland, Nepal, and Spain. Actually I do miss these people now especially my friends in Nepal who sent me “nature” photography everyday. I loved the photos they sent me from their country everyday. I would love to have someone do this for me again as I’ve only been outside of the USA to Canada.

I’ve blogged a bit about how unfavorable Twitter was for my social networking. It was a failure in the end once scammers attached onto me, and I’m now lost in the blogosphere as well. I’m not being picked up by as many people perhaps as I’d hoped so I assume my content is wrong. I don’t appeal anywhere, I’m probably as my step father says “too erudite,” and I’m not sure how to change this or make it palatable to my audience to generate anything from my business endeavors. So instead it’s a lesson in watching someone get tomatoes hurled their way or fall on their face. Whatever I’m going to learn from this experience I’m not entirely sure as of yet. I guess try to handle it with grace under pressure. If I was honest I would tell you I’ve been everywhere including studying the Mayan calendar and modern Mayan zodiac with it’s New Age vibe of Dreamspells that claims I’m White Cosmic Wizard. Again this showed up for me at random looking into things surrounding my July 26th birthday over the years. I’ve simply picked up a lot of baggage. If you’ve seen my chart Leo and Virgo or my 10th/11th Houses are the places that everything usually wants to astrologically live in. Thankfully my Vedic chart never looks like a Western!

Having Stelliums in 10th/11th Leo/Virgo Houses is Insane!
Vedic is a Wee Bit Calmer, But Still Everything is in the 10th/11th Cancer/Leo Houses!

My childhood due to my mom’s first marriage as well as other factors around finances kept us estranged from family. I’ve only gone to see extended family twice in Chicago on the maternal side and three times I’ve interacted with step family from New York (twice for my step grandmother’s death/care giving when she was diagnosed terminal with grade IV brain cancer during my late 20s). I feel very estranged as if I did not have or know my “family tree” which by your 30s or 40s after a tough childhood that you did not know your biological father after age 2 due to domestic abuse you grow up coping with feelings of abandonment/orphaned archetypes in your psyche particularly if you were bullied by peers as a child.

It took me into my late 20s to forgive silly things such as the group of girls on my junior high school bus when I moved to Cedar Park, Texas who threw gum in my hair. I went home in tears requiring it cut out of my hair which I was not psychologically prepared for. So I held the pain for a very long time feeling rejected by my external world, and I still deal with this in the present sometimes. I struggle forming relationships because most of my youth I felt as if I was constantly rejected and this has damaged me emotionally as well as psychologically in ways I’m trying to recover from due to lacking a support group as I do not know how or who to properly reach out to as an adult because this hampers the ability to build trust in another. Again it is why I’m wholehearted a solitary!

You will find as I’ve previously mentioned that I’ve been trying to slowly study the esoterics of many cultures over the last two decades so I’ve dabbled in many areas including having briefly researched Santeria through texts that delve into the Yoruba. This has been for me something I’m quite passionate about; learning outside of Abrahamic spiritual realities to round out my understanding or gnosis. In my eyes if I don’t it will appear as if I’m being very prejudiced as a person almost xenophobic which is not an attractive trait and that mindset comes from fear of the unknown.

As I don’t want my blog post to be too long winded today I’m going to share with you links to how some have interpreted this fairy tale as well as links to the symbolic meanings of the Fir tree in the hopes that it will help you gain insight into what my Bibliomancy wishes to teach this Monday.

The overarching message is a tale is about a Fir tree so anxious to grow up and so anxious for greater things that he can’t appreciate living in the present now moment.

I and My Father are One: The Solar Horus X-mas Special, Part 6

This Monday I leave you with the following as well for a positive affirmation.

1. Looking into the darkness there is color, there is life, and there is space. We can put ourselves at one with the universe like lying down and watching the stars. Most everything leaves your mind; you are “FREE!”

Rainbow Obsidian

Symbolizes North and East representing Spirit and Wind, two minds connecting magically together, and the art of fixing your gaze on an image, thought, or phrase while waiting, watching, and listening using the mind’s eye, ear, and voice to gain insight. Focuses the attention at being discouraged by something in life such as a lack of success and feeling unable to pick one’s self up to try again, but we have to get up and keep walking.

Virgo is about digestion which includes not just our literal food we eat at meals, but what we read, watch on television, or learn in school settings. My illness this month which caused me sore throat (Throat chakra imbalance), heartburn (digestive), loss of appetite, and dehydration coupled with mom’s pneumonia is insightful. For me it hurt to swallow, and I also had extreme dry mouth every night while sick. I add that to my long winded posts of learning about fluoroquinolones. As I’ve said my blog is a journey of expanding growth I’m personally going through when I meant it to be a help meet to my astrology business.

I happen to be a Pitta dosha.

Translation:

Holly (Celtic zodiac for mom and I) corresponds to courage, death, Divinity, healing, luck, protection, rebirth, and unity. Oak (the bed I inherited from my maternal grandparents) corresponds to ancestry, fertility, health, luck, prosperity, protection, strength, success, and wisdom. Fir (the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale) corresponds to birth, far-sightedness, protection, prosperity, rebirth, and vitality.

I hope you have an extra special Monday! 🌜📅 Sending you much love!
