So is it fate, pre-destination, or free will? Perhaps the below will help us determine our answer. Please be prepared for a bit of a mouse workout with the underlined hyperlink text that helps express some further support in separating wheat from chafe.
Today is the 4th of July and despite the online multiple theories about the significance of this day in any occult/esoteric parlance I wanted to take this time to explore an underlying yet common theme in my life which I’m literally as well as metaphorically always “pointing towards” one way or another.
I’ve chosen to go about this in my ever usual astrological musing manner by plugging the word “freedom” into a thesaurus, and I Spying the equivalent definitions of liberty, self determination, self government, self rule, sovereignty, and autonomy.
Autonomy being the etymological synonym of independent also reminded me of the common theme found within Virgo as I’ve explored my natal 11th House Saturn, North Node, Black Moon Lilith, and Moon within the Tropical or Western system.
Virgo then holds a new significance to me through precession of the equinoxes when I constantly re-evaluate my Vedic natal chart with emphasis on understanding the lunar mansion because these also equate to our current or past karma like a South/North Node. Surprisingly I continue to believe all of this which to many seems as perceived self absorption is in an earnest way to know myself and my external reality.
We don’t quite often in fundamentalism equate Virgo or virgin with it’s more applicable definition of the above themes regarding “she who is whole unto herself,” and by she I’m speaking to the Divine Feminine within all regardless of our hang ups around the confusion of sexual/gender constructs. These higher realities are never profaned the same way we do down in the 3D through our struggles with abstract concepts.
Getting Personal With Virgo:
This has to have been the most uncanny journey from my 30s to my 40s to embody. I don’t some days know what to make of it feeling as if I’m in an alternate reality. Sometimes I don’t even feel myself wondering if this is normal.
I’m going to spend my time today asking everyone to go over to Astro.com where they can explore in any extended chart of their choosing or even an Ephemeris the Asteroid Autonoma (1465), and if you ask why I will give the answer. Asteroid Autonoma speaks to the Divine Feminine etymological concept of autonomy.
Autonoma derives from the Greek αὐτόνομος which is broken down as self custom, law, and ordinance while ultimately speaking to the people and state who are subject to one’s own laws as independent. What this means entirely is that it is a place of exercising one’s own free will!
This becomes something quite potent in I believe Jungian thoughts towards individuation as well. And frankly I can’t emphasize enough how important this might be to investigate today for all of us. I don’t care if you’re not living in America because I firmly believe the principal is one of global understanding common to all on Earth.
It’s very easy to begin a free account with Astro.com as well as to plug into Extended Charts under Additional Objects the number for this asteroid while selecting any chart type thereby generating a result. I’d use my personal What Watch, but I don’t think it processes the asteroid or fixed stars the way I’m capable of through the web service I most often find myself at. But then even my Vedic astrology software has specific functions with certain limitations so you can’t always get it ideal.
I could have looked really deeply into this, but honestly I’m sticking with my Age Harmonics because I really want to grasp this in July 2022 as this is the month I turn 43 on July 26th so I find here my solar return as well which I was exploring months ago through another lens gaining great insights.
What we want to see is the highlights within our physical plane of manifestation compared with our desire/emotional body and mental sphere because we can learn how our intentions change or take shape.
This asteroid orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter in our solar system, but the location in my chart came as little surprise to me. Asteroid Autonoma for me is within my 8th House of Scorpio at 19° square Saturn, opposing Uranus, and semisquare Mercury.
The house that gives information on one’s life span, deep studies into latent abilities, inheritances, joint resources, and transformative healing requires a literal or metaphorical death, loss, or injury first. Two words describe the placement; dramatic and excited.
The 8th House relates to the reproductive system, chronic disease, and our limbs. That also sounds familiar with my self exploration. Saturn as an archetypal wise old man, authority, mentor, and father figure gets to meet with a phoenix that transforms anything and everything it touches. This metamorphosis is an extended dark night of the soul ferreting out underlying truth.
Uranus symbolic of freedom, liberation, and unconscious frustration takes the reins. It’s the pull to embrace change, stop fighting the flow, and to reform your goals. This is a very impulsive yet strong break away where one grows fed up with the standards of society becoming stronger through a desire for liberty and non-conformity.
It is something one is willing to fight for till their last dying breath regardless the cost they pay to win/succeed. What happens with our lives is that we have to assert ourselves through flexibility.
There is a tremendous receptivity here to the love coming from higher forces. Even in the midst of darkness this degree carries a subtle light that encourages everything it touches. Even if the person carrying the energy of this degree is mired in negativity there is always an undercurrent of remembrance of the help and guidance that is always reaching out to us.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A rope going up into the sky.” Here is a thread connecting us to something higher. What is it anchored to? It must be something far above us which we cannot see. It takes a lot of trust to climb the rope.
This degree either has a lot of trust and is willing to climb the rope or is constantly aware of it, constantly tempted by it, until it accepts the challenge. The Chandra Symbol asks the question “will we be safe if we ascend?” and the answer is “yes!”
Maybe the angel kisses the chart holder while they sleep because were they conscious their limiting belief system might not allow the kiss to happen due to not accepting the reality of the angel or not accepting that they are deserving of such a kiss.
Even if the chart holder is not consciously aware of this kiss delivered while asleep they take in its pure loving energy. This helps them to find the confidence to climb the rope. Work with guardian angel Yezalel and daimon Beleth.
Associated with the Five of Wands, Gold, Dill, and Leo Daimon Beleth is a useful spirit of love. This daimon is a solar spirit combining the forces of love with death actually assisting one in reaching their loved ones who have departed crossing the veil. Usually this is for emotional fulfillment, but ultimately you can utilize Beleth’s aid for other purposes as well.
Many work with Beleth to control the astralbody, activating one’s subtle senses, and breath work. A daimon of alchemy and truths is what you will be encountering.
This degree works best with Golden Sheen Obsidian to deliver the message of harvesting abundance, celebrating accomplishment, and inspiring the intellect and self esteem. Focusing upon passionate intensity we can show others how to lead a fulfilling and happy life. The affirmation is I feel satisfied in achieving my desires.
This degree sits upon the two fixed stars which include Zubenelschemali in the Northern Scale of Libra and Beta Serpens in Serpens the Serpent. Zubenelschemali is from the Arabic Al Zuban al Shamaliyyah or the Greek Chele Boreios meaning the Northern Claw rather than it’s association with the balancing scales of Libra. Persians reference it as Crob or the Horned while the Egyptian Coptic referenced Pritithi meaning the Two Claws.
Ultimately this became the Northern Scale symbolizing the full price which covers the deficient. This fixed star evokes the mythology of Astraea weighing the deeds of humanity to present them to Jupiter. I find this interesting as someone has combined it too with Human Design. Kabbalists associate this with the Hebrew Letter Heh and the tarot trump Justice.
The snake Serpens held by Ophiuchus the snake handler represents Asclepius to be found on the symbol of medicine and healing. The staff of Asclepius is commonly confused with the staff of Mercury/Hermes for one has a single serpent wrapped around the staff while the other has two signifying commerce and trickery.
The theme of trickery should indicate much to the otherwise unsuspecting and still asleep humanity at large. The more you know…
The Bible liberally interchanges the words dragon and serpent while portraying the constellation Draco as the tempter of Eve within the Garden of Eden. It is an elucidation to kundalini where we often saw its management conducted by physician-priests, witch doctors, and shamans.
Healing was facilitated through intuitive diagnostics to cure illness such as drumming, trance, herbalism, and chanting. Venom being a chemical with the power to heal, poison, and provide expanded consciousness we see it spiritually described as the elixir of life/immortality.
Relationships etymologically include the Greek ophis and omphi which relate to the hub of a wheel through navel implying the umbilical cord. This then speaks to the mother’s womb where a fetus lives. The symbolism represents the Sun’s healing power to support the sick, preserve the body/soul, and to give clear sight.
Regarding the harvest analogy; we’ve been pretty much in a drought in Texas where I live. Below is our summer progress for 2022.
Proofreading may be a wee bit sloppy today. I still feel a bit worn out from the last week. While my neuropathy and chronic pain have lessened the last two weeks took a great toll on me mentally, emotionally, and physically. Have a joyful and lucky 4th of July! 🧨🎉
Solving this little Choose Your Own Adventure novel means you will have to make some pathwork choices by utilizing the underlined hyperlink text. That means this is interactive non-fiction that I’m composing although many will class it as fiction I’m sure.
But as a fan of visual novels and the above book series growing up I aim to make my composition unusual as my creative writing college professor noted when I published fanfiction years ago. I’d like for you to see, learn, and grow from the perhaps not always wise choices I’ve made in my adventures.
Remember what I said yesterday about how I’ve learned to walk now three times, and I’m just tired. Well surgery meant I acquired not just the aid of crutches or a knee scooter, but I was walking with a cane. Ironically I’m not sure this is much different than Regulus moving to Virgo (I know I pointed blog readers here months ago), the Yod/Yad, and the Hermit tarot card.
Imagine the street behind your house is Lionheart with Iris nearby also as I previously noted in reference to Mercurial energies (Virgo exalts Mercury). Symbolism seems mildly familiar albeit I’ve put my ring and reiki bracelet on my dominant left not right hand. My left side has become not as strong as my right being that it is where all my injuries/weaknesses lie.
Is it not ironic that some when I went on Twitter said this form of astrology that I perform is too “controversial/radical” for them to accept. Ketu ruled people are usually thinking outside of the box! I left Twitter for reasons which I blogged about early in 2022 because I was rather disgusted with the platform and people on it.
I hardly even use social media, but I’ve created content and designed websites since the late 90s knowing how to code. I’ve seen much change with the technocracy becoming vocal here about how artificialintelligence is something many don’t realize is meant to pull wool over their eyes. Context and word smithery matters as it is neural linguistic programming! A sort of hypnotism, mesmerism, and such that keeps the unaware spellbound in the grasp of predators indoctrinating groupthink.
The tarot cards are all infinitely rich with various symbols, but the Wheel of Fortune as I began to notice after writing yesterday stuck out to me in my studies as to their esoteric value. We see pictured on the card representations of Regulus (Leo), Fomalhaut (Aquarius), Antares (Scorpio), and Aldebaran (Taurus).
Still a bit concerned about this ankle and if the spasm was a sprain/strain. Reading information online confirms I’ve probably overused my muscles/ligaments again. So I’m doing moderate therapy exercises, using my kinesthetic tape, and practicing good old fashioned RICE. I’m also walking slower than normal which is frustrating primarily to me.
I have a pretty good feeling this ankle never healed correctly or this is the degenerative nature of the many conditions wrong with me like the osteoarthritis weakening the joints. Post foot fracture we were concerned I’d need surgery to remove a cyst that grew in my ankle bones filled with fluid, but thankfully that spontaneously went away.
It could have led to another secondary fracture in my heel. I could say it sucks to be me, but I know that’s my negativity coming through loud and clear. Or rather we retain the memories sometimes of that which felt traumatic to us. The pain though is definitely not making me feel optimistic.
These stars have been characterized in different fashions from the Archangels to the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse:
Regulus as the heart of the lion or star of kings in Leo was said to be the healing Archangel Raphael and Doctor of Medicine who is presently guarding the Northern Quarter (Cancer, Leo, and Virgo; Summer Solstice).
Fomalhaut as the mouth of the Southern Fish in Pisces was said to be the revelatory Archangel Gabriel or the Strength of God who is presently guarding the Southern Quarter (Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces; Winter Solstice).
Antares as wisdom keeping or inspiring Archangel Uriel who is presently guarding the Western Quarter (Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius: Autumnal Equinox).
Aldebaran as the right eye of Taurus or the following Archangel Michael who is presently guarding the Eastern Quarter (Aries, Taurus, and Gemini; Vernal Equinox).
Personally I wanted to read the jobrelated Reiki healing articles, but that may or may not even appeal to my audience so I’m trying to not harass them. In days of the past these stars were given a high position/ranking due to their position along the four cardinal points of the Cardinal Cross.
Long before Judaeo Christianity was accepted as a dominant religion their representation was seen as important when aspecting any sensitive points within an astrology chart. They bestowed favorable outcomes on the chart holder.
I’m weird though because I’ve read my great grandmother’s Bible that I inherited cover to cover and because I did so before bed sleeping with it the binding fell off. I did not do the same with my copy of the Tao or the Quran.
I thought today would be a good day to explore a little esoteric astrology on these topics and maybe chart them presently, but I might do a Dodecatemoria/Dvadashamsha chart to locate the karmic DNA of the last seven generations. This chart won’t display the current precessed positions if we’re processing that which interprets what is essentially the twelfth parts.
These Dwads are powerful descriptions of interest that display the character of any person/event. What it serves is to show us where we have karmic debts, blessings, or fated connections. We want to see what talents and natural inclinations are possessed. This is the side of our true colors.
We will find Regulus in the 7th House of Libra at 1° semisextile Moon, square Venus and Uranus, and trine Pluto retrograde. Fomalhaut in the 2nd House of Taurus at 19° biquintile Sun, trine Mercury, semisquare Venus, sextile Jupiter, and opposition Chiron.
Aldebaran in the 8th House Scorpio at 0° conjunct Moon and trine Jupiter and Uranus. Antares in the 2nd House of Taurus at 0° opposition Moon and semisquare Jupiter and Uranus retrograde.
I think it would be best to keep this simpler so we will be simply viewing the Chandra symbols today for clues while I dive in just a little again with pointing everyone to the zero point energies I’ve been researching.
My belief symbolism is all around each of us, but whether we’re paying attention is actually another story similar to my wealth altar, inherited bed, and the grey coverlet I bought then placed on the bed from what was called the Grace collection via the At Home store where I live.
For years I was doing everything intuitive and then later trying to comprehend what was happening in my life without others thinking I might be way too airy fairy woo woo and off my rocker. I mean I’ve been at this for over a decade now avidly studying, researching, and practicing esoterics just not publicly.
Let’s try to grasp the symbols for each fixed star and degree. Regulus is expanding on a previous blog post and as such we will simply refer back to that entry which I know I made reference to yesterday so clearly I’ve fixated on a specific association. Something to consider though is that metaphyiscally bread is a Universal/Cosmic substance which speaks to the omnipresent mind stuff we are capable of molding via the use of our thoughts.
This is why it’s important to be aware of our subconscious or unconscious as well as limiting beliefs or negative chatter as they both can shape our reality/manifestations. We acquire truth when we meditate which is simply continuous contemplative thought used to expand our consciousness and transform our mind, body, and soul/spirit.
The house Regulus sits within is one of partnerships of virtually any kind including business endeavors which is where we seek cooperation, balance, and harmony. Regulus at this degree allows for positive harmony between consciousness and instinctual, emotional, and habitual response patterns to life creating fewer conflicts between our emotions and the application of life purpose.
Lessons are learned with the end goal to not have to repeat them. We may struggle with feeling lonely/unloved, but if we pay attention to our reactions we can better channel them through creative and artistic pursuits.
There are times we present at this degree as the Devil’s advocate, individualistic, and desiring freedom from all social restrictions. Generally this degree excels at yoga, meditation, self discovery, and clairvoyance.
Fomalhaut sits within the house of values, self esteem/worth, and what is often described as our overall feelings regarding our possessions or tangible assets. Aesthetic sensitivity leads to clever and ingenious outlets of creativity via breathing new life into dreary situations. We excel at anything which employs the use of our hands and voice.
Release of tension is necessary to more easily relax and go with the flow. Beauty manifests through our home life/appearance. Healing occurs when we correct our relationship to self by working to build better boundaries, learn that we are enough as we are, and ensure partners meet us halfway.
A remarkable instinct for the next lesson. Finding it, learning it, and drawing everything out of it that you can. Specialized in destiny activation and interested in nothing else. Purposively driven to take up karmic lessons all the way. Wildly given over to what is taken on. Working the territory as hard as you can. Making way for something new by wearing out the old. Assigned to tough situations yet knowing it is appropriate.
Super strong and especially tenacious and relentless. In deepest essence sacrificing yourself so that something can happen here that is going to take a lot of doing. And inside it all you are curiously resigned to whatever arises while not very concerned because long range results mean everything here. And a moment’s or a lifetime’s discomfort is a small price to pay when destiny is truly involved.
Aldebaran is in one of those houses that focuses our interests upon an energetic disposition to change/disruption. This is the black sheep phase of life where we’re trying to remove the cycles we perpetuate of duality between love/hate, loyalty/repulsion, and such.
There is an unexpressed resentment that suffocates us and this will display via psychosomatic illness if we do not get a grip on our repressed anger/sadness by working it out through the Throat chakra. We desire greater justice, social equanimity, and a revolutionary change of human ideals. Chandra Symbols never utilize the zero degree therefore I usually look to the first degree for clues.
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 it is you who 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 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 and 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, that all of it was necessary and redemptively built a character strength of a mighty fiber, as you knew it would.
Antares also in the same house as Fomalhaut asks us to be ourselves by remaining open mentally and within our heart space. If we appear cold, unfriendly, or distant it is because we suffer a subconscious and unconscious pattern of pushing others away that we have not fully removed from our consciousness.
When we release this blockage new forms of relating will open up to us. We suffer the expectation of others needing to be trustworthy and genuine valuing our experiences that push us to grow. Again we’ll look to the first degree of Taurus for some clues as there is no zero degree in this symbol system.
A passion for bearing ripe fruits. Feeling transported by an ongoing realization that you are in your own element, doing what you need to do, and subtly fired by an inner purpose that clarifies everything. The glow of your central intent warms you through. This quality of soul is simple and direct. It makes for a primal elemental presence.
One cannot grasp complex matters in this sphere. But you know what you need to know, and you’re on the beam so palpably that nothing much matters except being there. You distinctly charge the atmosphere with a pranic renewal, a source sustenance, and the whole idea is to make way for the universal life force to stream right in and bless with its all forgiving radiance.
May your Monday manifest wholistic rejuvenation. The garden on the other hand well I think it’s going to be spent before the fall. We’ve had too many triple digit days now, and I can’t keep up with the heat to save the plants. I cut an entire crop of basil in the back garden today as well as zinnias were removed due to drought.
I don’t deal well with losing my plants; it literally hurts somewhere to watch them suffer or to have to pull them when they are spent in the heat. I’m sure a co-worker will understand since she has called me a plant mother.
The hollyhock is about the same along with several flowers in the front garden. This year is more like the deadly desert in the movie Return to Oz. A movie I grew up with which yes I’m well aware of the occult symbolism as well as the rather racist mindset of the author some have pointed out as well as it’s populist themes.
There is much culturally that we don’t really want to admit to because we just want to enjoy a book, movie, music, etc., and we are confronted with some topics in life that we have to own because they are a part of our collective consciousness/shadow. 👥🔮
May today’s underlined hyperlink text be beneficial to my readers and help them further their spirituality.
As a Reiki Master level we spend a lot of time the same as anyone within the cosmetology field gaining continuing education. Today we will be looking at both the Hara Line as well as the connection to Shiva Shakti. Our core power resides beneath our auric field housed within the dantien making up our individual core star connection.
Dantien roughly translates as energy center, elixir field, or the sea of Chi/Qi/Ki where spiritual energy is focused on higher levels of awareness called samadhi. This practice is found in Taoism and has a vital role in traditional Chinese medicine. We actually have a total of three dantiens within the human body making up the lower, middle, and upper with various fields of influence which transmute energy.
These three treasures are located two inches below the navel (jing creates the physical body), at the heart (energy in this area is created via food, air, and our thoughts/feelings), and above the eyebrows (related to spirit/consciousness). To feel the middle or higher dantien you must build the lower dantien through energy exercises which is why many practice meditation focused on the breath.
The aura’s foundation where intentions are birthed, held, and housed is the very source/seed of your life’s purpose and creativity all found inside the Haric Level. It is described as a laser like line which aligns vertically with the physical body not visible to our human eyes approximately 1/3 of an inch wide beginning 3 1/2 feet above the Crown chakra extending down into the core of the Earth.
The higher dantien hereby signifies the separation point when your soul incarnated into the 3D on Earth as a spark of the Divine. We see this in many esoteric schools especially Kabbalah or Gnosticism called the Godhead. The middle dantien as your emotional body is a representation of your passions, longings, and has been called the soul seat. The lower dantien is your willpower tapped into extraordinary energies that help you follow through with your intentions.
As with any chakra you may have a balanced or unbalanced Hara Line. Collectively we can connect our Hara Lines with others to create a group Hara Line when we are energetically healed and correctly aligned with our life’s purpose. What we want to see is a straight, centered, and well rooted person properly in sync with integrity, power, and intent. When we become misaligned we will become argumentative, procrastinate, be overtly competitive with others, and perform our duties poorly.
Dysfunctions can occur through the Godhead when we become cynical, through the soul seat when we are lost in sadness, despair, or grief, and with the lower dantien when we suffer physical signs of chronic pain.
By all common concepts the best way to think of the Hara Line is as your electrical current which acts as the main power line that can become distorted through exhaustion, inability to discover the direction you should take in life, difficulty accessing your inner guidance/intuition, and by feeling powerless.
A simpler analogy would be to think of a green garden hose which has kinks preventing the water from flowing. Within the human body this does not allow energy to feed your organs, muscles, and so forth effectively leading to dis-ease.
If you would like to learn more I have a PDF I found and am sharing during my studies. When I studied for my Mastery Reiki level we covered a lot of these topics briefly so I’ve been trying to build a stronger foundation.
Personally I really like the PDF in reference to the chapter entitled the Heart and Golden Emperor because I can resonate this to the blog post I previously had on a blueprint through the tarot trumps of the Emperor/Wheel of Fortune in that I could even see that wheel the same as the chakras.
Esoterically we might learn that some believe the Tripuri tribes of East India worshiped Shiva for aeons as Siba or the Master of all Five Elements known as Harappa. Harappa when broken down is Dravidian for Father Shiva. Ancient Mohenjodaro cultures predating Egypt were believed to have been built upon Shiva Shakti worship as the Universal/Cosmic soul comprised of Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.
This will matter most to those who are more influenced by kundalini awakening/meditation. Reiki compliments many other modalities for healing and does work well with astrology. Today we will look at Asteroid Hara (4640) orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter with a Ceres classification.
We want to look at this asteroid in our astrology charts to determine if there are past life indicators of yogic/tantric practices. The best way I want to establish this is via the Dodecatemoria/Dwadasamsa Chart.
As previously stated this chart will look into the Vedic astrology to ascertain any karma encoded into the DNA of any individual beginning with parents/siblings determining one’s approach to life as was passed down throughout their ancestral heritage of approximately seven years. For me personally Asteroid Hara is placed succinctly in my 2nd House of Taurus being Venus ruled at 23°.
Aspects will include trine Mercury, sextile Mars, square Saturn, conjunct Pluto, and opposition Chiron. That’s a lot of aspects to cover and a lot of frequency or vibration to manage if you ask me. Let’s break this down one by one.
Lets begin by understanding that our 2nd House deals with values, possessions, money, and resources. It’s natural planetary ruler is Venus through the natural astrology sign of Taurus making my chart rather well structured. In essence the 2nd House is what makes one feel stable and secure.
Anything in life which helps one feel valuable, fulfilled, safe, and worthy falls in this space. It will be different for everyone. Our feelings in the 2nd House around these topics inlcude knowledge, wealth, spirituality, strengths/weaknesses, and our approach to earning or gaining in life be that skills development or financial freedom.
The Sabian Symbol actually gives a great description for this degree and placement above which I’ve linked to. We inherently find it easier to communicate in written form especially when we desire to market or promote ourselves especially for networking. We’re seeking mutually supportive relationships. It’s ideal for initiating pet projects where we look to gain harmonious non-aggressive partnerships.
Our biggest challenge lies in our demeanor as we come across as overly serious and responsible. We fair better when we learn to practice self love and to be more open expressing our emotions rather than repressing. We also must guard against low self esteem, negative moods, and becoming a victim of betrayal/abuse. Our shadow comes out in how we express beauty as we sometimes believe we have little value and don’t measure up.
I also really enjoy the work below with the salamander symbol! This degree is best described as thus.
In the midst of turbulence the chart holder is able to remain calm. They have a tremendous ability to stick with the most difficult of situations and to see them through. Though energies may be furiously whirling around them they hold to their path in life intent upon their course no matter how arduous it may be to follow.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A salamander glowing red orange.” In the system of Aura Soma the color for Taurus is red orange. The salamander is the elemental being of fire. Here is an intensity of character and an extreme strong mindedness that can evoke all kinds of different reactions in other people.
No matter what the reactions coming at this degree from outside of it there is a strength of character here that challenges others to manifest who they are with more power and directness. The tornado which is the vortex of personality is stabilized by the inner staircase that allows us to both walk down in the act of grounding ourselves and to walk up in the act of transcending all that which is lower.
And so the energy of the tornado is harnessed and used without being weakened or repressed. The salamander is fiercely on fire without being burned up. Work with guardian angel Nanael and daimon Caim.
Daimon Caim binds us to the Nine of Pentacles, Sagittarius, Orchid, and Mercury. If you’re in need of better intellectual powers or increased memory/focus this is a great daimon to work with. Caim is also great for developing one’s self in an effort to better communicate. This daimon also helps to ward off anxiety especially situations where your stomach ties up in knots.
The Kozminksy Symbol of this degree is also quite potent.
23° Taurus:St. Michael slaying the Dragon in a shower of black rain.
Denotes one with strength of purpose and ability to sustain trials. The Dragon is lust, corruption, and the cold moistures of the Earth. St. Michael is the life, solar energy, and conqueror of decay. The black rain is the evil which corruption draws. So when the native realizes the strength of their soul force they become a veritable victor over the monster into whose jaws so many unwarned and unguarded fall. It is a symbol of Victory.
This degree falls within the fixed star Zaurak in Eridanus the River. The name derives from the Arabic Al Na’ir al Zaurak translated as the Bright Star of the Boat. The Chinese referenced Tien Yuen or the Heavenly Park. The energies display as Saturn embodying one with a love of knowledge/science, travel, and change.
When this star aspects other planets within an astrology chart one should endeavor to not take life too seriously or put much weight on what others say. If they overcome a melancholic nature they will do well in life.
A few great deep sky objects can be found in this constellation as seen below. May you have a numinous Monday and please enjoy the following meditation video.
Sink beneath the surface today with our underlined hyperlink text as you journey through the depths.
Did you know that there is an Asteroid Atlantis (1198) that you can chart within astrology? No! Me neither until today. I thought it would be a fun experience to plop this into a Vedic Age Harmonic Chart for insight. These charts can speak to various portions of our life on Earth.
For example, I’m in my early 40s so my Age Harmonic will focus on auspicious/inauspicious effects of planets accenting where my good/bad habits of an emotional or psychological nature lie. There will also be indicators of a moral/ethical nature with regards to present karma.
At this age these charts indicate often which of the three Hindu deities we are reflecting be that Brahma, Vishnu, or Shiva and Saraswati, Lakshmi, and Parvati (creator, preserver, and destroyer is often also attributed here). Atlantis stems from legends of an island which disappeared beneath the ocean after a massive earthquake.
Plato is one of the first Greek philosopher’s often quoted as giving account of this followed by Timaeus and Critias. The reason we are so fascinated by this tale, tall or otherwise, is that it is an example of an idealistic and utopian society. I’d personally be one to account this to another allegory rather than historical fact even if that makes me disliked by many esotericists or mythology fiends/diehards.
We know that a large chunk of the Antediluvian stories are much like any other spiritual treatise we have been given in life which are read on multiple levels from literal to allegorical to metaphysical.
Is it then not easy to suss out that perhaps these myths with their oceanic depths speak more to that which is our individual and collective unconscious? Earth consciousness being the mind and chaos represents a sense of duality in nature/ourselves while water consciousness raises one into spirit.
The symbolic flood cleanses away confusion of the mind allowing us to meditate upon peace within. For many this is their first initiation into mysticism/mysteries of baptism where we experience stillness.
Or could this water represent the sea of our emotions and the unity of oneness? In the Bible we see this in Matthew 14:22 where the other side is our higher realms of consciousness while the mixed multitudes are those stuck in religious dogma unable to grow through meditation upon their spiritual path.
For those interested in some fanciful stories about Atlantis I’m enclosing a few, but it should come to no one’s particular surprise that for me we find Asteroid Atlantis in my Vedic Age Harmonic Chart nestled within my 12th House of Pisces at 16° (I mentioned flow yesterday) with aspects that include trine Jupiter and Chiron.
When compared to my Western natal chart we would find that my North Lunar Node or present life’s karma was Virgo while my South Lunar Node or past life’s karma was Pisces. Not quite the same as my Vedic Rahu/Ketu or nakshatra.
But these all form a more well rounded picture of a mathematical problem somewhat such as Point A plus Point B equals Point C. Natal plus Age Harmonic shows the future trajectory perhaps.
Pisces is a water sign speaking to Neptune. A 12th House Piscean is obsessed with the welfare of others often performing selfless acts in an attempt to make others happy. We desire to balance our karma. Our compassion is not easy to see and we will distract ourselves from whatever brings us sadness.
We can’t stand to feel oppressed by other people and although we may be perceived as intelligent we are also impressionable. Orthodox or unorthodox we have a natural affinity for spirituality and mysticism. This has little to do with standard religious practices rather it unfolds from a personal path we have tread.
We also are deeply sensitive to our local/world environment with clashes between those who are self centered and those who are known for higher ideals. Any woundedness we exhibit is through our relationship to alcohol and drug addiction (a primary component of the loss of my biological father was his alcoholism and domestic abuse/anger), mental illness, or a lack of spiritual faith. We heal by learning to trust in the Universe as well as the Divine.
The chart holder seeks a simple, independent, and often isolated existence on the periphery of human endeavors. It knows how to get along with little and avoids complexities that might get in the way of its intensely inward focus. It has highly unique gifts and knows how to work silently and unobtrusively to make special contributions to the world. Contributions that may be beyond the comprehension of others.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A peaceful child on a narrow ledge that overlooks a precipice.” This degree finds itself in limiting/confining situations, but rather than struggling against these takes an innocently calm approach to them often simply observing them and waiting. And often this serene attitude and attentiveness will dissolve problems that seemed at first insurmountable. The precipice could be threatening and so could the troll under the bridge.
If we wish to cross the bridge, descend into the precipice, or remove ourselves from it we must be sensitive to what the situation requires and to what we need to do to to make the desired transition. This degree, subruled by the cautious sign of Capricorn, might be called the degree of patient outworking. Work with guardian angel Yeialel and daimon Ipos.
Daimon Ipos is a tie in to the 5 of Cups, Jupiter, Yarrow Root, and Scorpio. When we come to work with Ipos we develop courage, decisiveness, and we learn to control our emotions. Meditative workings can be done through the use of tarot divination as well as the spheres of the Moon.
Your aura when working with this daimon can be unbound from negative entities allowing for protection from psychic vampires. Often Ipos imparts eloquence, confidence, independence, inspiration, humor, and bravery. This daimon rules over self development and divination.
I’ve read that it’s good to work with this particular daimon when we work in a business position which benefits from increased sales. This speaks to not just my astrology business online, but my part time cosmetology employment.
When we develop enhanced articulation, become more convincing/effective at helping others believe in us, and establish our credibility we can succeed. Another helpful trait of Ipos is assistance with the transition through death be it literal or transformations during our lifetime as we will experience many endings and new beginnings.
We find this degree sitting upon the fixed star Homan in the neck of Pegasus the Flying Horse. This fascinating name originates in Sa’dal Humam meaning the Lucky Star of the Hero through a 15th Century Tartar astronomer named Ulug Beg. Later a 17th Century orientalist identified it as Al Hammam or the Whisperer. Yet, the Chinese called it Luy Tien/Thunder.
Arabic components consider this fixed star an emblem of good luck often attached to Jupiter and Venus. The energies of this star, however, speak to Mars and Mercury giving one an ambitious nature, intuitive skills, and enthusiasm.
Now see I’m going to just laugh at this because I purchased online a Black Holes and Flower Essences astrology report. So when I learn that Messier 15 has a secret supposedly within the Pegasus galaxy I’m left with nothing except a recognition that the Universe has a sense of humor. Mostly because well I have a whopping 30 aspects to black holes in astrology on this report. But then see we’re really just playing a game here!
Traditional astrologers aside who associate this asteroid with negativity on the spectrum of fear versus love through impending doom we can always choose to transmute frequencies to something of a higher order. Many associate this asteroid with separation, a crystal kingdom, strong connections with marine life, technological advancement, extraterrestrials, and the infamous 5D.
The infamous 5D is like any other idealistic and utopian belief that there is no hierarchy, no superiority/inferiority complexes, and equality not equity as I’ve stated these two words are of completely different etymological context in a previous blog post.
The downfall being greed, various forms of abuse, and other low vibration factors entering the consciousness of many individually as well as collectively. The need to compete/compare through us versus them when we look to this asteroid in our chart butts heads against the vibration of beauty, oneness, and wisdom. It’s your choice to come into alignment with higher truth for water holds memory just as crystals do.
You will find some more modern astrologers who believe further that developing a sudden interest in astrology, numerology, crystals, natural/spiritual healing, occult knowledge of the chakras, reincarnation, or starseeds tend to possess a supposed past life in Atlantis, an ancestor with a past life in Atlantis, or an ancestor with present DNA which survived from Atlantis.
What must always be remembered here is that water is the ultimate carrier of information and holds consciousness despite the fact that many humans take it for granted. Our brains are composed of up to 83% water where neurons send electrical signals which absorb and release water as a means of communication. Neurotransmitters, all ecosystems, and more require water to carry messages.
We as humans have the most significant yet misunderstood, forgotten, and denied relationship to water! For science states that water is an inorganic compound in which chemical processes occur.
At this juncture we have completely distanced ourselves from the true purpose of water which is why we exploit this resource. There are consequences for controlling the flower of water, diverting water from its course, and polluting water. Water is responsible for the most delicate metabolic processes in your body connected to your evolution alongside that of animals, botanicals, and microbials.
Water is in fact sacred! A perfectly hydrated body would be at least 90% water not soda, not fruit juice, and not coffee/tea. Perfect hydration is the missing link to your optimum physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being. This also implies consuming the right kind of water. Most of the water we consume today is dead water leeching minerals, nutrients, and energy from your body.
Electrolyte deficiency is certainly not the only reason many are in fact walking around dehydrated. And lastly water absorbs energy from the quantum field when properly structured! This makes it life enhancing as it double vortexes making us a recipient of Divine stewardship if we learn to properly care for the planet we call home and properly tend to our temple known as the human organism.
I leave you with an ASMR video on Atlantis. May you have a visionary Monday! I’ve been flitting around these topics for months now. Blessings! 🤗💗
Today I am ending this blog post by sharing a collection of wildflowers from the garden some of which the centers are literally gold/yellow five pointed stars!
Busy bees are using/clicking on the underlined hyperlink text to bring you treats!
We have a New Moon in Gemini on a degree that has occurred several times in my years of studying astrology. It’s a degree that I really don’t want to focus upon at this time because for the concept of today’s blog post I don’t particularly vibe with energy it speaks to whatsoever. I’ve decided to place my focus elsewhere and do something different instead to elevate the day rather than “trigger” anyone through divisive topics.
You see the energies of this New Moon many would be astrologers as well as those who are “trendy/popular” want to play up this degree and placement. Meanwhile it’s aspecting fixed star Aldebaran, Mars, and Jupiter promoting the energies of karmic vengeance/retribution, anger, and rage.
When we compound this with the Saturnine energies present we get negative thinking, nasty words spoken, and we should do everything we can to not project these energies onto those we care about. To channel this New Moon what you want to focus upon is turning over a new leaf, questioning old habits, and inventing new ways to make progress with your goals.
This fixed star corresponds to a group of stars which in classic literature were described as causing backstabbing, muddled thinking, evil dispositions, and violence. Some see this as harnessing the energies of unceasing anger and avenging murder all of which I for one don’t desire to put my energies into. I’d advise other esotericists and would be astrologers or tarot readers to re-think about promoting this New Moon due to it’s current aspects or vibrations.
Try to place your attention on something else today for where our focus is that is actually what we begin to attract into consciousness. It’s best not to play around with such negative prospects when we can transmute them to a more positive outcome.
Just looking at the above is enough explanation to why aspects of my personal life have suddenly been uprooted and become stressful especially at my part time cosmetology job. The last thing I want when I have family drama from time to time is to confront the unnecessary nitpickiness, micromanaging, or even workplace aggression of co-workers or managers.
I don’t even know what happened or why it feels like a repeat of a previous experience I had in this industry a few years ago, but I’m frankly unwilling to re-live the trauma a second time.
Ironically I did an astrology study for my recent part time cosmetology gig and learned quite a lot tonight in terms of the who, what, where, when, and how. Insightful to say the least! I won’t be publishing this, however, I did share my research with a couple of people.
I’m going to work upon a SAD or Solar Arc Direction chart with a snapshot of asteroid Sunflower (19019) while explaining some of the symbolism or mythology behind this beautiful flower as I’ve just had the ones sown in the garden begin to open. I’ve also got some more photos to share with everyone of our progress at the end of May despite some rather unforgiving Texas heat. Neither I nor the plants are enjoying this scorcher of a season.
I’m going to be a little less in depth today simply to return to a less lengthy post session as it’s also a holiday today. We find asteroid Sunflower placed in my natal 3rd House retrograde Sagittarius while the Solar Arc has moved this to 4th House Aquarius at 4°.
Here we’re moving from intellect, communication, mind, and information perception to where we wish to establish our roots or home, our mental peace, and where we feel most secure. We’ll pass over aspects and do a direct focus on the degree as well as the symbolism of the sunflower today. I’m in love with this Sabian symbol again; perhaps a correlation to yesterday!
The chart holder has the power to trace anything backwards to understand its source. Other people who engage in this process often don’t go far enough, but this degree is intent on origins continually looking under anything found to seek its cause and source of support.
The highest result of this is the complete cleaning out of all negative karmas by clearing them at the root.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many fireflies at dusk.” The dark may be vast and engulfing, but the light is always there to help us let go of doubt and uncertainty knowing we have the power to overcome any and all challenges.
This degree is about little seemingly insignificant things serving as lights, and more importantly about the way our light calls to the light of others creating mutual enhancement and encouragement thereby helping us all to always remember who we really are. Work with guardian angel Hekamiah and daimon Zepar.
Daimon Zepar correlates with the Eight of Pentacles, Venus, Black Mustard, and Virgo. When we work with Zepar we may experience various forms of fertility including mental and artistic inspiration. This daimon assists with mental alchemy and disolution of one’s little ego. The goal or focus is to remove phobias while breaking down disadvantagous thought patterns from forming. Zepar works in two spheres that of the Earth and the Sun.
Let’s look at the mythology and uses of sunflowers below.
This degree sits upon the fixed star Oculus in Capricorn’s eye. It is associated with the Hebrew letter Yod and the tarot trump The Wheel of Fortune. The energy is often displayed as piercing intellect. If I don’t blog on Tuesday this week please know that I’m busy tending to mom’s health as well as other important tasks that take priority, but I’ll see where I am as the week continues with time management.
Have a great New Moon, Memorial Day, and mesmerizing Monday! 🪔🌻
PS: More garden photos from when I awoke this Monday! 📷🥔🍅
While I’ve used more underlined hyperlink text for expansion on topics I’ve covered today many of them are from an article series of one specific website. You’re free to discern for yourself what you wish to believe or not believe. I know many say they don’t believe at all as I do or that they do not understand much of what I might be pointing them towards.
We’re in Third Quarter moving to Waning Crescent Moon phase presently in Pisces at 11°. My Moonscope email called this the Dreamcatcher Moon. The energy of this event will be unique to each one of us based upon our astrology charts. For me this is my Natal chart’s 5th House, but if we look at the Draconic chart we see that this would be a 50/50% split in the 10th House shared with Aquarius.
Pisces is my South Lunar Node representing past life karma that I’m more comfortable with in comparison to my present incarnation’s 11th House Virgo mission/purpose. Today if we ran a chart Pisces would have more influence on my 10th rather than 5th House believe it or not thereby being more in alignment with the Draconic energies.
Translation becomes influences that impact our chances to experience pleasure through childlike, joyful, and relaxing moments when self expression is at its best and when luck in fame and achievement clash with authority representing our social status, authority, and professional activity through the eyes of a visionary who loves a good challenge. It is here that our unconscious begins to manifest psychological traits, recurrent emotional responses, and inner impulses which are beyond our control due to hereditary and childhood experiences.
For me, myself, and I which would be better termed my ego the Moon is semisextile Sun and Chiron, octile Pluto and Venus, and quintile North Node. These aspects make us more aware than most of the adjustments people need to make in life. We’re frequently in the position to adjust our life path as well as behavior to adapt to others, but we find that we’re also more often than not placed into “no win damned if we do and damned if we don’t” situations. We make up a group of collective souls who are forced to choose that which is in conflict with our innermost needs.
Through Chiron we have an advanced wisdom or understanding that wants others to see their world through a new perspective that will resolve their issues and wounds which originate in their childhood due to missing nurturance and love. The wound lies in a lack of security and emotional validation that many have experienced.
We recognize that there are people in our lives who are overwhelming with a need to kill off their negative habits, but who apply manipulative tactics in relationships with us through revenge and vindictiveness often holding grudges. It borders on cruelty, abuse, and feelings of entrapment.
If these emotions were refined we would be dealing with those who are harmonious, cooperative, and gentle in their approaches to relating. Relationships would be nourishing, happier, and peaceful. The best healing modality for our placements is to employ creative imagination through storytelling, art, and music.
There is a fascinating synchronicity in the Omega symbols described as three undines guarding a golden treasure at the bottom of a river. Undines are water elementals, and as I’ve been spending so much time in the study of metaphysical concepts of Kabbalah, mermaids, waves, etc. I’m fascinated by all of this.
As I am still integrating my Black Holes astrology report I purchased online alongside Flower Essences this is a huge confirmation albeit biased that my psyche is trying to integrate. If we break the word itself down we find that Latin unda etymologically is wave while French ondine is mermaid.
According to esotericism the king of the undines is Varuna of whom the Vedas report and who belongs to the Devas. The undines have an etheric body as their uppermost member with a physical body, but below that two more members belonging to the third and second elementary kingdoms. The undines have an intense emotional life and are related to our feelings and emotions.
There is a correlation here that I’m becoming each day more and more aware of in this journey. One which I’m discovering others also recognize, but the circles I’ve traveled in for a large chunk of my life outside of through the world wide web never put me into contact with anyone on the same wavelength as I am. Literally I feel a complete disconnect from a large chunk of people I meet outside of through the digital realms.
It might explain why I likewise struggle sometimes to maintain jobs into my 30s as well as 40s. The systems currently running the “simulation/matrix” as some call it feel very non-resonant to “who I’m becoming” as opposed to “who I was.” Just when I think I’ve found happiness and a match I learn that often times I’ve mistakenly or incorrectly perceived my environment or those who I’ve attracted to myself creating this roller coaster of ups and downs. It’s as if I have not found my tribe in my immediate circle or vicinity and am instead finding it through distant relations by surfing the internet.
Upon penetrating water we find another kind of spiritual being unlike the solid which is similar to the intellectual faculties. The elemental beings which live in the water are more akin to our feelings. We stand with our feelings separate of things. A beautiful tree outside and we are separated from it until we let what it is flow into us.
The liquid of the tree is its sap flowing into every leaf with its sensation. It not only feels the red and the blue from the outside rather it experiences this color inwardly carrying sensations into everything within. The life of feeling is much more intense in these spiritual entities than the very intense weaving of our limited intellect.
Undines complement fish, but also insects by forming their scales or outer armor. They are sensitive to everything. Fish have a relatively closed astral body, but they live very much in the world of aether. Undines are not fully awake and instead they dream. Their greatest delight is when they come to a body of water to preserve their ability to take on the form of a fish.
Their essential nature is perpetual metamorphosis. By dreaming of the stars, the Sun, the light, and the warmth they shape the leaf. Normally undines are completely enclosed in the realm of the leaf. But they can also grow beyond these limits, and in fact they always strive to do so to become mist giants. Undines transform the larynx into an organ of speech. Speech, however, is located in respiration, and this gift is known as clairvoyance having a greater spiritual perception than most.
If you want to continue with this series as I probably will in my spare time a good article series that might be helpful at this time for you is the Human Life – Dreams beginning with Part 1. Trust me much of what I hyperlink to and share in my studies others don’t quite gravitate to that I personally know. Well with the exception of one customer who explained that she too was more airy fairy and into the woo woo happy to learn I was a Leo as she was married to a Leo.
This degree places a focus on the issues of temptation and desire. It is continually asking itself why it wants what it wants becoming unsure of its desires. This is the first manifestation of “Leo” energy in Pisces (bare with me as I’m a Western Leo/Vedic Cancer Sun sign). The little ego which is often based on selfishness, and the illusion of limitations must be dissolved so that the greater ego may assert itself as a pure mirror reflecting the love and joy of the spiritual light into our physical realms.
The river is time. The place where the golden treasure lies is the present now moment. The three undines are the self as reflecting all time; past, present, and future. The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A high crumbling wall. It is part of a ruin and covered with ivy.” The wall was probably a part of something lofty and grand maybe even a cathedral. Now it is a support for the ivy. Is this function less noble? Which role that the wall has played and created enhanced the world the most?
Power is stored in the Earth at primal quickening points. Often in these places humanity erects monuments to its own folly. Eventually these merge into the landscape and everything comments upon everything else. Being held between the Earth’s wise presence and humanity’s dim apprehension of what is really involved here. One side of the feeling nature is so intuitive and psychically astute that you are harboring advanced gifts that can serve Earth evolution in staggering ways.
Another side of the feeling nature is contorted with reactions, judgments, and condemnations of the collective trends of humanity and of the weakness of the human flesh. These objections and rejections of the human scene rebound upon the self and poison the psychic faculties.
It is only when you heal and forgive renouncing the minor key irritable voice inside and out that the floodtide of burgeoning awareness of what is arising in this Earth with all its ripples can wipe away the false structures and foster the new birth; the tuned in and blessings focused outlook and inlook.
This degree is all about letting things be and then seeing what becomes of them through detachment to outcomes. It realizes that many human agendas are at play and although they style themselves noble or of great importance they are actually quite narrow and false being mere pretensions of the little ego.
It may be just as beautiful to see things fall apart as to strive to build them up. The outer cathedral when eventually lost to the ravages of time can encourage the exploration of the eternal inner cathedral. This is one of the golden treasures guarded by the undines resting in eternity at the bottom of the river of time. Work with guardian angel Nanael and daimon Caim.
Daimon Caim binds us to the Nine of Pentacles, Sagittarius, Sweetgum, and Mercury. Any work done with Caim improves intuition, understanding the communication of various animals as well as the waters, protection of the astral double, and dream work is enhanced. Hydromancy being a specialty of this daimon one learns to comprehend the noise of the waters and the movement of waves. One is guided to becoming an excellent debater.
It is only slightly ironic that this degree in fact sits upon Lambda Aquarius in the poured forth water of Aquarius the Water Bearer. As stated my Draconic 10th House embodies a 50/50% paradigm of Pisces and Aquarian energies on the Western wheel. In fact in Vedic it is an Aquarian Ketu that I am given in the 5th House of all places.
I’d link to my study on this, but I’ve already hit 11 backlinks at this time so if you wish to locate it simply plop in North Node on the search feature of my blog’s sidebar. It was a Teach Me Tuesday’s probing of utilizing myself as an example of the lessons astrotheology can impart.
I’m not fond of using client’s information as I think that is a violation of their faith/trust in my keeping their personal data safe nor do I wish to use that of celebrities. I’ve said this before; you don’t use someone’s data without permission. The only examples I’ve otherwise made were those of my ancestors who are in my record keeping as an honor/tribute to their memories within our matriarchy.
I don’t find a lot of information on this fixed star except for it’s naming which is taken from the Greek Hydor etymologically defined as water and Ekkhysis εκχυσις as outpouring. Maybe the best way to contemplate this is to look to the Labors of Hercules. Or perhaps you prefer meteor showers! Kabbalists associate this position with the Hebrew letter Nun and the tarot trump Temperance/Art.
May this current Moon bring you pleasant dreams! 😴🛌🏻
Plunge to new depths today with the underlined hyperlink text that will enhance your collection of thingamabobs.
There is an archetype of the Siren which can be perhaps a bit similar to the Enchantress or Femme Fatale if we consider how this is portrayed in stories we’ve grown up with. Today I wanted to investigate this with the Draconic theme I used in yesterday’s blog post by seeking out related asteroids I could look at through a magnifying glass of my own self study.
What I found was a little different than I expected. I found Asteroid Merman (5456) which I believe will pull in the Divine Masculine energies which I’ve combined with Asteroid Sirene (1009) to embody the Divine Feminine energies, but there is also Asteroid Melusina (373).
I think I will make this a two part series and work on a full blog post devoted solely to Melusine tomorrow on my Teach Me Tuesdays so I can properly cover her with the asteroid. She honestly deserves her own space in my opinion.
Sirene is a Danish derivative taken from the Latin Siren and Greek Σειρήν Seiren which originally meant entangler or binder and was used to describe a rope or cord as well as the action of grabbing, seizing, and enclosing. Greek mythology depicted this archetype as a seductive yet dangerous female who lured passersby in through irresistible singing.
Merman was a derivative of Old and Middle English Meremenin which originally meant mermaid or siren depicted as a legendary creature that is a human male from the waist up and fishlike from the waist down.
Maybe my attraction to the archetype is also because I was born in Clearwater, Florida and as a child you could not get me out of the water. Even now I love my showers and the rainwater shower head when I get in. I used to be a bubble bath junky growing up as well.
Not to mention how much water I drink some days. I’m a 1979 baby! Honestly I kind of want to move back to Florida from Texas, but I might be having a nostalgic past moment.
There is in fact a theme here that well some might just not actively recognize while others will. Why the pull towards the Draconic again? It has to do with the fact that through a Draconic Chart analysis we look into the past life which as I’ve said with my lunar nodes we will find more hidden gems as my South Luna Node was Piscean.
That past life karma is revealed also within the Draconic landscape to show what any incarnating soul has brought forth from their previous incarnation to be experienced/resolved in their current incarnation through the North Lunar Node which for me is Virgo.
From within this we discover the events, careers, and relationship any individual experiences on their soul path. Which while this is all from the Western rather than Vedic school still holds merit. I’ve spent countless hours examining my Vedic through Magha nakshatra, but sometimes I’m less inclined to investigate the Western.
Draconic positions help us contact and work on our shadow as they indicate where we will have less free will and where our unconscious is being experienced which is always depicted as sources of water be they rivers, oceans, and so forth. The Vedic system displays this dance as Ketu and Rahu. It all builds upon itself similar to the layers of an onion!
So what we see for me is that Asteroid Merman is within my 1st House of Taurus at 22° with Uranus square Sun and sextile Moon. Asteroid Sirene creates a stellium in the 10th House of Aquarius at 24° with Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter opposition Sun, semisextile Moon, and sesquiquadrate Neptune. That “white dove over troubled waters” symbol is significant!
The degree that Asteroid Sirene is on has previously been covered twice now in blog posts so I encourage everyone to head on over and look at both of those entries. This is really to serve the purpose of not redundantly covering the same information over and over again like a broken record because I’ve rather extensively appealed to the study of this degree now. Now let’s define this in English.
This placement displays an increased need for love and affection. We don’t like to be involved in the drama of others. Challenges are often responded to with a focus on aligning to our essential value systems. We are seeking to improve our relationships by sharing our feelings and speaking from our heart space. Successfully accomplishing this removes the lower frequencies of anger and resentment.
We’ve learned to bury aspects of ourselves which don’t fit in with the world. If our independence or individuality is threatened by a career, relationship, or the societal norms we eventually develop an us against the world mindset. Anything swallowing us whole makes us fight for freedom. This is because we enjoy being a free spirited and childish soul who breaks out of routines.
The last time that Uranus was sesquiquadrate was during 1952-56 influencing humanity. This second phase of post war children offered relative stability and reconstruction. Yet the collective of humanity was torn between post war labor reformist policies of a welfare state and the dreams/fears of a new world that is openly rejecting how inhumane most of us are capable of becoming.
Do you revolt against authority and become anti establishment or do you wish to feel socially secure? Personal freedom is paramount and asserting this right is always a struggle.
The degree itself displays as follows for better understanding. An elixir of flower nectars and mists, of golden rains, dark sleets, and mountain snows, an elixir of waters and light. The waters providing the light with a body where it might open into the fullness of its color. The Throat chakra a ravine down which the light and water rushes into a cave of marvels each color drawn to heal a different ray of darkness. For darkness too has its own dark rainbow.
Communicating gently and with the whole of our being we create within ourselves a healing energy that enlivens us deeply. When we tune in to the unique needs of every situation we become increasingly aware of the direction our actions are taking us.
Becoming saturated with the spiritual light we become increasingly impervious to the forces of destruction. Sensing the direction in which we are headed we search for alternative possibilities which are often not obvious. Work with guardian angel Imamiah and daimon Allocer.
Daimon Allocer is connected with the Eight of Pentacles, Venus, Sage, and Virgo. If you’re working with this daimon you will learn how to utilize the planets in your initiation. Allocer is also helpful in aiding your focus, clear thinking, and establishment of proper boundaries.
I’m laughing because while I was working at one of our sister franchise stores last week the management “saged” the location my first day. One of those Jungian synchronicities!
There is no fixed star, but it’s advised one work with Dioptase crystal. A good message is to remember that our emotions exist in two realms; physical and spiritual. Focus on remembering that when angry, fearful, and suffering from blind ambition we get static on the radio station of our soul. The affirmation should read I moderate myself with inner aim.
I’m wrapping up this with a few ASMR videos that use the siren/mermaid theme for your entertainment. Please pick whichever one strikes your fancy or watch all of them. Have a magical and inspired Monday! 🧜♂️🏰
I would like for you to take an otherworldly exploration with me today by clicking on the underlined hyperlink text which will illustrate very well what I want to show/teach you. Yes, this includes the links to Abell 3627 and the Great Attractor in the image description below!
I’m always digging into the asteroids because there is always something fascinating about them even when I plop them randomly or haphazardly into an astrology chart. There is no specific interpretation for either of these asteroids. My theory was to break these two words down and then let my blog readers consider what they might believe these asteroids could speak to.
(astronomy, astrology) celestial body, heavenly body
fixed star, planet, the Sun, constellation, or comet
(figuratively) a person exceptionally talented or famous in a specific field
a person who looks after and guides tourists
a person who delivers messages
a company that delivers/transports messages
the atmosphere above a given point where the Sun, Moon, stars, and clouds are seen from Earth
one who walks, traveler, and journeyer
I’ve seen a few theories online about the asteroid Astrocourier (29080) with reference to space architecture and microwave imaging radiometers that have been used in scanning for background radiation gaps appearing in areas of multiverse collisions which would act possibly as a link to the “many worlds hypothesis.” Other theories not related to quantum physics include a person who has come from the stars to deliver a message or any person who delivers a message about space and astronomy.
Asteroid Skywalker (274020) is specifically named for the fictional characters in the Star Wars franchise. This asteroid circles the Sun every 5 1/2 years between Mars and Jupiter. I’m more of a Star Trek fan personally, but I’m not seeing many asteroids that fit the theme. I’ll probably have to make more effort to actually try locating one at a later date/time. I believe the closest I’ve seen is asteroid Enterprise (9777) which I could perhaps attempt to make it work, but I have not researched much even with the discovery of that particular asteroid.
The “many worlds hypothesis” takes root in quantum physics at the level of atoms and subatomic particles through the behavior of light and matter. We can think back to the 1920s theories of a cat that was both alive and dead at the same time, but even MIT says physicists and ordinary mortals have no common sense explanation for what is “going on.” Interpretations exist through equations yet MIT says the multiple universe ideology is a colorful hypothesis that might appear crazy without being necessarily wrong.
Schrödinger’s cat was seen as philosophical and motivated by a desire to get rid of any idea of the “collapse of the wave function.” Bohr wanted to see the outcome of this experiment where there was only one outcome not an admixture of dead and live cat; superposition of states.
Then terminology updated to explain that two parallel universes or worlds exist in which one cat is alive and in the opposite the cat dies. Open the box in one universe to find a live cat and vice versa. Therefore there is no collapse of the wave function rather it’s a determination of fate based upon different possibilities or alternatives happening simultaneously.
Somewhere along all of this we came to quantum choices muddying the waters by “splitting” into different versions of itself. This became the theory that an amoeba who splits into two daughter cells if they had brains each daughter cell would remember an identical history up to the point of “splitting” to then generate its own personal memories. I’m honestly thinking this sounds far more psychological in theory also.
But MIT took this further through the quantum computers “switching” between superposition states through electrical circuits which are either on/off through the corresponding zeros and ones of binary code being manipulated. So we begin to grasp the spinning up or down of the atoms/electrons.
Every “switch” is a qbit or cubit. Some state that superposition embraces “all possibilities.” Cosmologists have occasionally stated the multiverse is a superposition of universes. Someone can get back to me on all of that later…
As I’ve said previously post foot fracture I was put on some pain medications that altered my neurotransmitters in my nervous system so I found myself only capable of reading quantum physics, astrology, tarot, and having a thorough focus on Kabbalah or various spiritual practices.
Anything else put in front of me where the words moved on the pages or I was in/out of consciousness either blacking out as in passing out for unknown lengths of time or sleeping 14 hour days. Two months of that, and then developing the side effect of suicidal ideation was more than enough to make me try quitting them cold turkey and succeeding with a very minor taper off due to some unpleasant withdrawals. Topics I don’t want to put here as they’re not exactly the “high” points of my life.
And “NO” I was not trying to actually perform any experiment. In fact, once I researched, learned that the medications my pain clinic prescribed were contraindicated, and began to actually advocate for my well being properly I realized that I no longer “trust” most medical professionals anymore as difficult as that is for those in the industry to now have to be told.
I understand humans make mistakes, but frankly when you’re playing God with my life against my authority we’re going to have some serious irreconcilable differences! The kind where I might become rather unattractive as a person and have some problems with my Emotional IQ slipping a little lower than normal. Being a Western zodiac Leo we don’t want to go into the Schrödinger’s cat theory because that’s going to get really “wyrd.”
But then we all must remember my studies about Magha nakshatra born people with Regulus, Ketu, and the Leo to Virgo transition.
Barbara Pijan always fascinated me with her rundown of Magha lunar mansion in terms of it’s description. Some of which reminds me inherently of Puella Magi Madoka Magica in its description of soul gems during the contract process. You see the soul gems hold the place of a magical girl’s soul as a source of their powers/battle gear.
It’s explained that the human body also metaphysically described as our temple is a container possessed by a soul which is extracted to form the soul gem. If the soul gem is moved outside of a 100 m range the magical girl’s body goes inert until her soul gem is returned to resuscitate her. Strange theories; right?!
The 1-27th portion called Agha, Magha, Makha, and Kosthagara is said to facilitate a variety of identity change movement of the soul away from the body.
This quick movement during the change of spatial relationship between the body and the perceiving apparatus called soul (seeker/listener) creates a brightness that is likened to a burning sacred fire.
Trance heat can be understood as metaphorically similar to the experience of atmospheric re-entry that is now understood from the space traffic of various high powered airborne vehicles coming and going through the Earth’s electrical atmosphere.
They do get hot from the abrasive particulate friction and sometimes burn up completely if not properly shielded. It looks like they are just moving through the air, but indeed many fields of particulate structure are being penetrated and navigated in order to change levels.
Quick disassembly of the particle structure of the protective aura which surrounds the flesh body and again quick reassembly upon exiting the trance state to return to normal life perceptions are the special blessing granted to Magha.
In the old books Magha is likened to a type of death and indeed a trance-state may imitate a very brief and voluntarily entered coma. Its special characteristic is heat generated by the speed of the change in the field of consciousness.
When Magha matches the radical lagna the human incarnation tends to be rather unusual. Magha folk are more aware than most of the light quantum which form the basis of the particulate nature of reality.
Experts in the nature of light they are often what is termed a “wanderer” (volunteer helper) who hails from the fifth density of awareness. The specialty of fifth density consciousness is creative light.
Incarnating into Malkuth (terra/Earth) via their transfer station in Regulus the Magha folk have typically come to help raise philosophical awareness.
Their perspective is emotionally detached (Ketu) in their highly philosophical and witnessing personality. Yet Magha is often surrounded by theatrical attention getting scenarios due to the radiance of their inner light.
If other features of the nativity show a high level of public visibility Magha (the Great Ones) may be hailed as royalty or celebrity. However, the ego flattery that may be generated by their charismatic glitter is of little interest to Magha whose work here is focused on assisting the evolution of human life by demonstrating and revealing the light of consciousness.
Due to their Ketu vision which dissolves forms exposing the formless swirling light energies behind the curtain of form Magha are a class of magicians who can transform the public imagination.
They rarely marry and normally exhibit no desire to bear children. They prefet to meditate and contemplate. Yet during the recent age there were Magha women who under cultural pressure bore a small number of offspring who were then tended by devoted helpers.
Anywho, let’s chart these two asteroids today to see what they want to share with us before I ramble and share more “Twilight Zone/Outer Limits” with you. I’m going back to a Vedic Age Harmonic Chart because we want to see the current energies defining my life at present not the snapshot of when I was born which is what a natal chart really does.
The natal chart is entirely a snapshot of our past essentially.
There is so much that I don’t believe some astrologers properly disclose and discuss with their clients. This is why I began to self teach myself as I was fed up also with customary cold readings. It’s also why when anyone purchases a reading from me it can take as my Terms of Service & FAQ state two days to compose a decent report.
For all my complaints I’ve been glad my online business is not generating much “noise” because between my mom’s potential foot surgery and my part time cosmetology job I’m swamped. We’re waiting for her insurance to approve her to even receive the MRI on her foot so instead she is in a boot on leave of absence stuck in the house. I now realize I’m glad I was uninsured.
I was able to bypass and get all of my health needs taken care of by being my own health advocate without a system that is propelling me some days into the realms of anti-establishment. I was even asked once if I was an anarchist. I don’t, however, fully think I identify as that. I do prefer to act from a place of sovereignty or self reliance though not really enjoying my other options.
This is probably the most energetic chart I’ve seen. I’m looking at stelliums in the 4th and 9th Houses where these two asteroids are placed. The 4th House is all about the desired environment we wish to live within and the place we would like to call home. It’s what we create as an adult sitting upon a very spiritual axis meant to imply that this will be the foundation upon which we build.
Cancer and the Moon rule the 4th House. We are foodies who can be psychic with dreams about our past lives invading our consciousness. We desire to show off what we’ve acquired from our careers. The connection to Cancer and the Moon cause dramatic ties to our mothers to influence our emotional and home life.
The 9th House is where we broaden our view of the world/universe taking in the existential meaning of why we are here, what is our purpose, what is truth, and so forth. Being ruled by Sagittarius and Jupiter the focus of this placement is on enlightenment, adventure, and philosophical wisdom.
This placement enjoys doing research and traveling. Truthfully the desire is to experience life first hand by learning about ourselves. We’re normally adaptable, but we’re also severely agitated if anything encroaches upon our views regarding the need for freedom.
Astrocourier is in the 4th House of Cancer at 11° semisquare the Moon and opposition Jupiter and Chiron. Skywalker is in the 9th House of Sagittarius at 12° quincux Chiron. Our self esteem and ability to exploit potentials causes us unease. If we allow self doubt and unproductive questioning to be the order of the day it will reduce our ability to achieve in life.
This placement causes emotional instability due to conflicts/friction with one’s parents either from their childhood or during their adulthood. This placement demands that we learn to better evaluate people’s character even within our family to ensure their intentions are not misguided or lacking in perception with regards to how they view or treat us.
As we work through our emotions we develop skills for counseling not just in psychological theory or realms, but through being there in general for others as we develop an ability to see the point of view of those outside of ourselves. We begin to learn what unsettles us about our current situation whereby we go within to heal and seek answers. We start to rely on instinctive and mystical wisdom as well as archetypal energies to integrate a belief system or ideological approach to life.
The chart holder sometimes experiences the anxiety of feeling that something is missing or that there is something they need to be doing or searching for. They’re tuned in to what is missing and where they feel most inadequate. It’s important that they learn to see this as good as well as capable of furthering their own evolution rather than carrying it as a burden. They will find their treasure. Have patience and know that it is already yours.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Monstrosities in glass jars in a side show.” This degree tunes in to the anomalies, quirks, and unusual aspects of existence. Through exploring abnormalities it comes to know itself and comes to better understand the human standards that have judged certain things as abnormal.
It looks beyond human bias to try to comprehend the deeper meaning and purpose of existence. This is the hidden treasure waiting to be found. Work with guardian angel Reiyel and daimon Astaroth.
Asherah was often associated with carved trees thus her worship often took place in forested areas under trees or with an Asherah pole. Names can derive via Ashtoreth or Astarte respectively with reference to the Moon goddess.
If you’re working with Astaroth you’ll likely gain balanced articulation and representation of your true self. Other areas of assistance come through guidance in the human affairs of friendship, prosperity, magic, divination, astral time travel, and empowering thoughtforms which heal one of anything which has been ailing them.
Additionally the chart holder knows that isolation and distance are illusions. We are only as separate from others or from ourselves as we believe we are. It is our belief in our separateness that creates walls between ourselves and the rest of life. When this belief is let go of the walls disappear and we find ourselves in communion with the whole world.
This degree has the ability to have a big impact on many people. That is the significance of its writing being in the sky where so many can see it. The best you can do here is to keep your words positive so that their positive effect will return to you.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Icicles melting.” The icicles are frozen water signifying the emotions. Here as they lose themselves they shorten and as they do so they move closer to heaven. The water wanted to fall to the ground, but the freezing temperature stopped it.
It is your own loving warmth that helps both yourself and others to let go of stuck feelings so that gravity may take them to Earth to nourish life. Their sharpness can be melted away and allowed to flow again. At your purest you bring into the world a sense of Spring wherever you go. Ego dissolves in the light. Work with guaridan angel Menadel and daimon Stolas.
Daimon Stolas is tied to the Ten of Cups, Jupiter, Celery Seed, and Pisces. If you’re working with Stolas you will learn psychic protection and initiation through the Moon. You will also develop improved mental clarity with a practical mindset towards history, biology, astrology, astronomy, and geology. Stolas has much knowledge with reference to the cosmos and natural sciences of herbs and precious stones to impart to those who desire the knowledge or gnosis.

There is a nice little asteroid you can plop into an astrology software such as via Astro.com known as Spirit (37452). I’ve decided to experiment today with the Solar Arc Directions (SAD) technique utilized for identifying key life events. This takes our natal time, place, and date of birth as the starting position and duplicates all the planetary positions upon an outer circle or wheel. The idea of this prognostication is that it complements transits and progressions.
Today we take a trip to concepts that are from Japan with our underlined hyperlink text which reminds me of high school and my 20s when I loved anything and everything Japanese.
For every year of life the outer wheel is moved forward roughly 1 degree per year. It’s important to acknowledge that with the SAD chart all planets and points are moving equally while kept in the same relative position. The rotation is determined by the Sun’s apparent daily motion as of your day of birth. The inner wheel as the natal horoscope never moves remaining the same as a constant while the SAD wheel moves and corresponds to the unfoldment of your life.
Significant aspects between SAD and natal shows when the important events within your life are scheduled to occur. I’ve seen a very good example of this used for Barack Obama gauging the date that he chose to run for Presidency as well as the date that he won the election showing the markers for these events.
What this prognostication is meant for is to identify the highly significant, dramatic, or major changes that will occur in your lifetime. I chose asteroid Spirit for obvious reasons today. Derived from Middle English and Old French espirit or Latin spiritus it is often signified to mean breath, spirit, to blow or breathe, and can be compared with inspire, respire, and transpire.
It is a displaced derivative of Middle English gast which likewise implies ghost. This came to me in remembering the discussion I had with a Vedic astrologer friend on Twitter who remarked that Ketu ruled people’s such as myself remind them of the Boo’s found in the Mario franchise which made me laugh. I then sent them a video of Ghost House levels because I could not help it; to me it was humorous, but to those who don’t like Ketu they emoted online through a crying emoji.
Yet Ketu is not all bad! In fact I was greatly torn on if I should not look to see if there was an asteroid for Ganesha to propose today for my blog, but I went against this opting for Spirit. Perhaps another day I’ll get to that! As the dominant lefty of my household with my infamous ring this again surprised me to read. The more one tries to learn about self as well as other in the hopes that we will one day “better relate.”
Or well maybe not! Sometimes or quite often I don’t feel as if I’m doing any of this right because wow sometimes I get some “wild” reactions! I’m glad I found someone else obsessed with Ketu because I’m obsessed with learning about my Magha nakshatra and Ketu feeling as if to others it will appear very self absorbed or wrong of me. I literally have to learn my own light and shadow if I want to be a better person though.
When we peer further into the metaphysics of Spirit we find that this is described as a moving force of God/Goddess said to be the creative intelligence. Within each of us this is a discoverable flow of thought which evolves independently of our reasoning process.
It appears when we focus upon the faculty of Truth through conscious and superconscious mind blended into soul and body which renews our mind. As we project this outward we build spiritual consciousness like that of a Buddha, Jesus, etc. This Spirit of Truth watches every detail of our life and when added to concepts from Greek mythology was symbolized by the goddess Hygeia.
Spirit is our I Am or Divine mind receiving impressions from the outer world. If we release our limitations we are perfected. Others perceive the aether, astral, and soul as virtually one emanating from creative law. Supreme Being lies deeper than soul making it difficult for the mind to grasp concepts of the Absolute. Soul touches the inner realm of Spirit to receive inspiration as well as the external world to receive impressions.
We purify the soul when we express Divine consciousness. Our Spirit is the Divine center within each of us which is always in contact with the Absolute teaching that separation is an illusion. That nucleus within must harmonize to express Divine consciousness and carry forth its ideas.
Our ego attached to our sense consciousness builds our Antichristian self via its adverse nature of selfishness and greed whereby we grovel in the mire of materiality. There is another ego which is of a spiritual self known as the true self which becomes an individualized God/Goddess consciousness or I Am identity.
This was not easy for me years ago to acknowledge during life coaching when I also abandoned the practice for reasons I’ve previously discussed. I actually was just beginning my spiritual journey and so I kind of scoffed at the very concepts being placed before me unwilling also to embrace them fully.
My Ketu is a 5th House placement therefore I’ve felt isolated during my educational curriculum, but I love to deep dig into any subject I am interested in. This placement aspects the 9th House and Ascendant implying that we will research more about ourselves as well as religion.
Our relations to marriage or children will be broken in life. Both of which were never interests for me to pursue this incarnation. I neither wanted to marry nor bear a future generation thereby I’ve gotten a lot of flack from my peers because I don’t partner up.
Ketu ruled are in traveling or wandering mode and this is the power given to us to rise to our highest potential. Jupiter works great with Ketu by activating all our chakras. Well placed Ketu activates health, happiness, monetary wealth, spiritual gains, and domestic happiness. If it happens to become weak or debilitated we instead acquire quarrels, litigation, and friendships with “mean” people where our time is wasted unnecessarily by burdens placed upon us.
We are often treated to familial discord as a normal process of life. Likewise Ketu can portend injury, surgical incisions, fatal diseases, unexpected medical expenses, and violence when not well aspected in a chart.
If you’re curious about some of my Vedic studies on myself to learn before I would consider offering them within my online business here are two entries that might help you see what I’ve been learning.
My Solar Arc chart shows that Spirit has moved from my 11th House of Virgo to my 12th House of Libra 26°. Spirit is now semi sextile Jupiter and Pluto, opposition Saturn, square Neptune, trine Chiron the Wounded Healer, and sextile Uranus. So how does this all really translate into English. Well my 12th House is actually my Ascendant first, but this house rules that which we keep from others such as secrets, confinement as seen in prisons/hospitals, our past life incarnations, and endings.
When it is Libra ruled by Venus we have a difficult go when it comes to working with others therefore taking on a partner is actually discouraged for us. We do it all as an individual or as one person going it alone. We also can struggle with putting ourselves “out there” more.
This placement indicates what lead to our birth as well as our birth into the 3D itself. The 12th House is our unconscious, metaphysical, and spiritual doorway to the prenatal experience of the womb. The Ascendant in your chart is you physical birth. These two important life markers are the canvas of your life. It is hidden in the recesses of your mind and will create the entire tone of your existence. Anything placed on or near the 12th House and Ascendant reveals all the experiences of your mother during her pregnancy and your birth which directly affected you.
The Libran experience is meant to be a pleasant pregnancy with a calm and relaxed mother who may indulge in excess food and music, but there will be underlying issues regarding money and expenses. If we experience a 12th House Ascendant we realize the previously defined ego failed us. We desire newness expanding to connect to our cosmos through nature, art, and spirit yearning for the oneness we are a part of. We’ll enjoy meditation, nature walks, and finding time to be in balance. Our undoing is being lied to and betrayed by others. We have significant issues with “trust” that makes us unwilling to depend on others for our survival.
This placement means we’re impassioned to express ourselves through writing, art, music, and performance particularly creative form/process desiring a new mutually supportive environment to further develop in our life. We suffer from a strong desire to pull back the layers of our underlying feelings to gain awareness of having direct honest dialogue that pushes social norms/boundaries.
We can’t stand superficialities. We had extreme difficulties with our parents and authority figures that made us overly self critical of our self worth therefore we will almost never feel as if we measure up in life which hampers our sense of inner security and self acceptance. This propels us into self reflection and we often appear stoic yet desire to feel our emotions deeply.
We can’t put our insights into words for others to grasp, but we are hugely receptive to the natural world around us loving to deepen ourselves into spiritual practices. The Chiron aspect is the most important because we are destined to develop healing and teaching gifts especially for the area of psychology. We learn that we give and give and give only to receive rejection in life and as most of our relationships keep demanding more we grow resentful and embittered at how nothing we seem to do is enough to please others.
This causes us to opt to not partner and to focus on self love, self healing, and self help not wanting to give to others what they refuse to appreciate or even value constantly begging us for more until we can take it no longer. We literally hold onto all these old hurts and pain carrying it around constantly aware that we’ve been devalued which makes us less willing to be in relationships.
Meanwhile we’re stifled, frustrated, and angsty if we can’t express our authentic selves and we seek the unconventional. We don’t really like routine, can come off as eccentric, and often are forced into juggling multiple commitments. We generally are interested in fashion and gardening appreciating form/beauty at a higher level than most. If you’re wondering still about the Venus and Chiron aspect I’ve seen it defined as “Bleeding for Love.”
Some describe it as a Japanese art form of kintsugi where we are a broken ceramic with beautiful gold filling that needed repair. This became wabi-sabi later where something imperfect, damaged, and scarred can be made more beautiful for it through mottainai known as regret of waste and mushin as the acceptance of change. As a licensed aesthetician this is so funny to me to see in my blog post!
But also because I’ve often used online aliases which always incorporated “Mu” in them as well as the Solfeggio “Ut” or 396 hz frequency when I compose them with other numbers, special characters, and such as a means of identity. It is a constant for me to self identify as some form of “Mu” and “Ut” now also when I want an uncommon or unused alias. I also had a huge habit of sleeping to entrainment music and was trying recently to slow down on how much I consume for healing overnight. It became a voracious addiction.
A feeling of inevitability and momentum is here. The chart holder possessing this degree has a relaxed vital quality that can enliven and refresh everyone. Others may readily get caught up in their enthusiasm and without trying they can be a leader. When they strive to do anything their natural flow is spontaneous.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gypsy cart with a campfire nearby.” Home is wherever you make it and this degree has the capacity to be comfortable anywhere. It has a lack of concern with formalities and the complex ways of the world. It is direct in its approach and relaxed. This makes all living simpler and more direct. When things get out of hand it knows how to scale down and cut back while maintaining a joy of living.
This helps to relax others who come in contact with it and to focus more on the here and now rather than worrying about the plans and duties of tomorrow. We are all going where we need to go and the more we acknowledge this the easier the path becomes until it is as easy as water falling off a mountain. Work with guardian angel Mikael and daimon Vepar.
Daimon Vepar is linked with the Seven of Pentacles, Venus, Taurus, and Mandrake. The Homunculus is part of your nervous system anatomy which I’ve studied a lot about due to my chronic pain particularly the peripheral/sympathetic nervous system and the hippocampus. Anything you do with Vepar will often be connected to Venus, fertility, and mental self transformation which usually implies creativity, resourcefulness, and dissolution of the ego. This daimon wants to rid a person of their phobias and disadvantageous patterns of thought.
I’ve seen it described that Vepar works with the planetary spheres of the Sun and Earth. Often what occurs is that a person explores their behaviors and emotions then initiates changes in their life in an attempt to remove toxic relationships. Internally this daimon helps a person heal negative self talk/criticism and depression.
This degree is best when we work with Crackle Quartz imparting the message that we seek balancing and transformational processes focused on determining our life path. The affirmation for this degree is I choose freedom and peace in this current situation.
Have a magical Monday everyone! I have to go tend to getting ready for sleep to be up bright and early in the morning. I’ve been exceedingly busy and sleeping in causes me to feel as if I’m a headless chicken running around or an animal chasing my tail all day unable to catch up. ⏰
This may be my last blog post for a while, and you will understand the “what, where, when, why, and how by the end of this entry. Please use the underlined hyperlink text as a map for hidden treasure!
The more I try to learn about the Abrahamic faiths the more I somewhat feel a growing need to distance myself from some of them due to their radicalization on the basis of improper teachings that are birthed from them. I think this is something that is more common than not to the mutual dissatisfaction of those who are Jewish, Christian, and Islamic. The degree with which I’ve studied the history of their proselytizing which has led to some incredibly violent and horrific atrocities or crimes against humanity is quite off putting.
Any ideology that has become radicalized I simply won’t agree with particularly when it comes with an inability to understand or know (gnosis) that there are differences between the literal interpretations to the esoteric more metaphysical/mystical interpretations.
When I went to high school it was situated on Baghdad Road, and I began to think about the relation of this to the fact that I’ve taken up gardening with a name that directly reflects Persian or Zoroastrian concepts in reference to the location of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon for these were located south of Baghdad in what is modern day Iraq.
If we were to look upon the etymology of paradise we would find that Proto-Iranian paridayjah gives us garden. This was meant to represent a garden surrounded by a circular boundary wall. Ironic that it is thus that many have believed this Garden of Eden would be located in the Middle East near Mesopotamia. Some consider these gardens to be purely mythology!
The archetypal reality of this place so many yearn to return to though is not necessarily outside of ourselves. In Hebrew Gan Heden of surpassing greatness is a sphere of activity known as a garden, world, body, and Universe where it was in fact metaphysically meant to represent a pleasant, harmonious, and productive state of consciousness where all possibilities of growth existed. It’s not something to look for “out there” when it is within each of us.
The “garden” so many seek is a symbolic representation of our spiritual body in which we as humans dwell when we bring forth our thoughts derived from Divine ideas in perfect relation to the substance of God/Goddess. The idea of a Paradise Lost is an esoteric exposition of what happens when we have not developed Divine consciousness in realization of God/Goddess therefore our thoughts and ideas do not originate in Divine mind, wisdom, or love.
Our body or temple is meant to be the outward expression of the Garden of Eden. This was in fact given to us by God/Goddess with express instructions to keep and dress it by working in Earthly consciousness to use our co-creative powers to preserve harmony/order in our world.
What happens is that exoteric believers ignore that the entire book they choose to cherish so passionately is an entire allegory. Eden is a region of being where primal ideas are meant for the production of beauty in elemental life with intelligence placed at the disposal of humanity through which we are to evolve our mind and body. Your physical as well as spiritual attributes comprise a mini Garden of Eden. The minute we actually begin to operate in accordance with Divine law rulership as in our sovereignty becomes authority and dominion of the Kingdom of God/Goddess within.
Instead I have literally countless people around me who promote these incredibly unpleasant ideologies that foster nothing except perversion in the outer reality through their improper powers of manifestation advocating for that which has no place in occurring because of the “agendas” it furthers likely as a byproduct of their egoic self or at the juncture of being propagandized to such an extent that they can’t accept truth.
Genesis 2:8And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Here Eden signifies “light” and thus the garden is of light, love, and peace. Earth consciousness is the mind combined with chaos where duality exists and it is only the beginning of a meditative practice. You see this as I’ve said previously represented as the animals going in pairs into an ark. But these stages must progress to water, air, and finally fire before you receive a renewed mind often called quintessence. Adam is a word construct which means atom as the source of all life.
Activate the Third Eye chakra in the right hemisphere of your brain and you will come to the seven days of creation as your chakra system where your Earthly lower mind must reach higher consciousness. It is not until you open the seventh chakra that you will find the place of peace known as Jerusalem which again is not “out there,” but within you. Elohim was a plurality meaning it contained both Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine principles, but religion with its inherent dogma can’t seem to cope with this fact.
It’s also a byproduct of an era when women were not to learn that their female energy rising up the spine as kundalini made them part of their Divine creator. This is still going on presently; you will still see people who wish to continue promoting the patriarchy as superior. We should be seeing ourselves as equals, but I imagine it will continue to take a long time for consciousness to reach this goal.
And this is also often misconstrued further into other lower mental topics which are infesting our 3D with improper ideologies or teachings wreaking havoc on the human condition. Topics too “touchy” for me to discuss with my audience. Eve is simply a split atom with a serpent that represents our physical aspect via a sigmoid shape of the human spinal column.
The minute our consciousness gets confused by duality we lose our sense of self as well as our life’s purpose. The inherent goal presently of the 3D dogma is to keep everyone trapped in this duality or lower consciousness. Another ironicism is that Sin which meant we are missing the mark was also a lunar deity of the Chaldeans. Ur being a place where we dwell in a lower Emotional IQ.
Babylon is also not something “out there” rather it is within every human corresponding to our lower nature of desire and the five senses which hold our souls in captivity. As many do not have their seven chakras spiritualized they are entrapped in wanton consumerism and self indulgence. Higher consciousness is in fact always available and accessible when we become willing to sacrifice the time and commitment to acquire it.
The entire “beast system” is merely people who desire to have more any way you slice it through vices such as lust, greed, gluttony, and so forth because it implies an insatiable nature. This is where we learn that the number of this “beast system” is also a closed Third Eye chakra dominated by the Earth consciousness.
The two hands we possess are tools to survive in a system that engenders the constant need to accumulate material possessions which now rakes us over coals through inflation. So the larger portion of humanity chooses to worship at an altar of materialism lacking proper balance in their existence.
Materialism in and of itself is not wrong rather it becomes perverted when we allow it to override our spiritual evolution. The insatiable aspect is found in humans who mix their lower nature with the higher consciousness forgetting to purify these energies which leads to a cup of indignation or wrath hence we never find contentment or satisfaction making us like a drug addict always yearning for more.
The literal always compounds problems because it foments a slew of improper lifestyles in the 3D. These are seen in the beliefs of there being no harsh weather before Sin, no hard labor to receive food or other life essentials (seems to me this would lead to sloth/laziness), no death on Earth (again we’re speaking in parables therefore that would mean no transformation or transmutation of the lower nature) which hardly seems ideal for a spiritual or consciousness evolution, and a place where God/Goddess spoke to humanity face to face.
I’m still stuck on no death on Earth because I find that not a positive harbinger or outcome and it makes me think of humans wandering in darkness or ignorance for aeons which really doesn’t sound optimal. Then again I’m also coming at this from my understanding of Death as a Major Arcana rather than the literal act of dying. We’re running around fearing death which while this could be literal also quite truthfully is simply a new life opening before us with new opportunities.
The best description I saw was that the dance of death is when all the “masks” fly off and the husk to refer to the a Kabbalist term more related to the Qliphoth has cleansed its core and died acquires what is its true beauty. This, however, occurss for all regardless of sex, age, creed, hierarchy, etc.
Today I’m going to briefly touch on some asteroids I located which match my garden as I’m growing green, yellow, and purple beans, roma tomatoes, and potatoes. I don’t want to get too in depth with this so I will make this very brief. I’ve added the asteroid for Paradise as well.
If you would like to chart these for yourself you can locate them via the following association: Paradise (2791), Bean (13606), Roma (472), and Potato (88705). To keep this as basic as possible I’m using an Ephemeris to simply take stock of where they are located in my astrology chart as of today. This means I’m matching it to my Western natal chart.
We would find Paradise in my 1st House Scorpio at 14° with Uranus, Bean is in my 8th House Gemini at 15° with Mars, Roma is in my 1st House Scorpio at 27° with Uranus, and Potato is in my 3rd House Capricorn at 27°. That is a mouthful! It is widely accepted that the 1st House is our ego, appearance, focus, identity/self, and explains the wide range of perspectives one holds about their world.
Ruling the head and face as well as the conscious mind the 1st House is quite different from the 12th House where our intutive mind lies. It is best said that Aries and Mars rule the 1st House making it the house of a doer where it is all action. Scorpio imbues this with magnetism, mystery, and usually one will have a brooding expression on their face coupled with an intense stare. We generally intimidate everyone.
Come full circle to the 8th House and we get another whammy of Pluto/Scorpio energy due to their rulership of this domain. This relationship house deals more with the axis of money, mental/emotional transformation, and of course death/inheritance.
Thankfully Gemini here allows one to come up with a variety of ways to deal with joint finances, investments, and we look at life through the perspective of diving into our problems through transforming our mental perspectives. We’re just naturally curious! Communication is huge for us as is self knowledge. So when it comes to mental health we let go of any and every thing which is not healthy for us.
Finally the 3rd House is the place where we speak or write while focusing on transportation and local community. This house speaks to early years of education up through college or trade school. Capricorn doesn’t waste time with saying what needs to be said, but we also don’t express our thoughts and opinions unless we have something productive to interject.
Being ruled by Gemini and Mercury you will find this deals with the neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and ears. When we feel misunderstood we tend to become disinterested in relationships. We also come across as serious most of the time, distant, and won’t put a lot of faith in others so I imagine this deals with that issue of “trust” again.
Women dressed in black. They are wailing and mourning.
Darkness, heaviness, sobriety, and grimness. Grief for lost worlds. Dramatically cleansing what must be let go. Freeing the spirit. Laboriously and intensively preoccupied with endings and captivated by the past. You are fascinated with the decomposition of things. Living deep in the unconscious and inside collective dramas. Lost to yourself.
Thrown into patterns, syndromes, and worlds that require drastic measures to transform. A feeling of being cursed. A sensibility of doom. A creation of the worst inside. The long established deeply ingrained consciousness of stark limitation. Getting under it and destroying it the long hard way.
Being able to turn any energy into something positively has a deeply enlivening effect on whatever one creates. Strong and deep attachments eventually lead to mourning until they are released. When we soften our consciousness so that we may perceive that everything is alive we are visited by and receive the love of the angels.
When we share our grief with others in a complete way we lighten ourselves so much and create such a connection with the Divine that we are able to rise above the heaviness of the physical world. Work with guardian angel Cahetel and daimon Barbatos.
Daimon Barbatos relates towards the Nine of Swords, Venus, Gemini, and Arnica. This daimon excels at teaching one to understand the voices of animals particularly that of feline creatures, amphibians, and reptiles.

There is a universal sourcespring of renewed life-forces and reawakened expanded awareness which is on tap for those who venture there. Most characteristic of this vast realm is its common ground, free access, and broad representation. You are everybody at once converging toward sisterhood and brotherhood. The sudden, drastic, and astounding universal life stream toward the future being there just like that. Serendipity and chance.
Fortune and synchronicity. The hundredth monkey comes to town. The only thing asked is to make way; to cast off the outer covering of separative identity and to open the path letting it flow. However, this is so easy and natural you can pass it right by and miss the chance. It takes an urgent call and a trick of destiny to reveal that as close as can be open doors to the infinite are waiting for those who can drop the disguise and come to the party as they truly are.
Realizing the accumulated meanings of the past we are able to rise above them and gain an expanded overview of how the spiritual realities create and interact with our physical reality. Continuing to flow through time we sense certain forces to which we are attuned calling to us and are able eventually to see and understand those forces in a deeper clearer way.
Or put another way at first we may follow our bliss only uncertainly and darkly, but if we continue faithfully to follow it we connect eventually to universal consciousness by coming into a deep understanding of who we really are. When we allow ourselves to build our own tower of magic from which to view the world we grow into being able to appreciate the mystery of beauty without requiring any explanations in which to keep it caged.
When we come to realize that our physical life is actually a distillation of our emotional body we perceive that all matter is alive and that everything is always surprising when limiting assumptions are let go of. Work with guardian angel Sitael and daimon Vassago.

Using Snowflake Obsidian impart the message that our imagination takes us on journeys of play and discovery with a focus on breaking the barriers of time and space. Affirm that you are free to roam freely through the past, present, and future where treasures await to be awakened.
Holding inside you a complete future vision. Preserving and guarding a limitless awareness of what can be and of what shall be. You feel so pervasively the impact of what you carry inside that each piece of it now becomes supercharged with meaning and archetypal power beyond how it might seem to anybody else. Being in the preliminary stages of something so vast and staggering that even those stages feel momentous beyond conception.
Just about bowled over by future destiny. The personal self of now is cast into shadow, seeming trivial, a throwaway. But so transported by prenatal resolves to go all the way this time that any sacrifice or difficulty is chalked up to necessary stages of rough process. And the inner mind holds its lodestar in view and simply cooks inside till it’s time to boil over.
Letting communication happen naturally and spontaneously we are able to relate to others with whatever level of formality, distance, or intimacy that feels required in the moment. Tuning in to a fine, subtle, and intuitive level of communication we find ourselves able to impart a sense of new life, hope, and transcendence to others.
To relate to others in an atmosphere of openness and joy that leaves behind all fear induces us to spontaneously see the beautiful and eternal purposefulness of the universe. Simple hope and an innocent effortless connection to life becomes a path to the healing of emotions and the creation of miracles. Work with guardian angel Nelchael and daimon Morax.
Daimon Morax relates towards the Four of Swords, Mars, Elder, and Libra. Essentially this is another daimon skilled with the teaching of herbs, stones, and astronomy/astrology. Morax is seen as an ideal to work with if you wish to become a herbalist or to enhance your skills with crystals and gems.

A long mirrored hallway lit with candles.
Purpose gazes right down the middle and sees that the way is clear. The internal adversary lurks under, around, and through things and is supremely doubtful of everything you see and know. This only provokes the purposive one to become higher and mightier, more commanding and domineering, which in turn incites the adversary to more radical sabotage by denying your own worth in a savage fashion. Each side pushes the other over the edge.
You are karmically at a crossroads trying on for size strong selfhood and its inevitable shadow of pervasive doubts and negations. Learning and discovering arduously how to stay with yourself even while going against oneself. And thereby outlasting the adversary and proving that one can do the impossible even when one is one’s own fiercest critic and hardest to impress audience.
When we tune in to those living forces of wisdom within we find we are able to use that energy to effect profound changes in this world and to help others to open up to higher states of consciousness. Working delicately and lovingly with the intricacies of life we find our way forward becomes more and more clear as it is illuminated by our intuition.
The understandings that swim within our subconscious and which are always ready and willing to reveal themselves to our conscious mind are eternal truths that are ever finding a new and unique expression through our own utterly unique being.
When we can clearly see the way forward we then realize that what we need to enhance our journey is to take care of whatever we are going to use as our vehicle of travel and to meet whatever responsibilities it requires of us. Work with guardian angel Haziel and daimon Paimon.
Daimon Paimon relates towards the Ten of Swords, Sun, Bindweed, and Gemini. Most people work with this daimon for astral out of body experiences as well as remote viewing.

I hope that you have a soothing Monday. My left foot is slowly feeling better; the muscle relaxer helped. I guess I forgot that an eight hour shift of standing in one spot at a register taxes my injuries I’ve incurred and healed from. This is probably why I was trying to “face” the entire store so I would be walking. It definitely feels better to be moving and on the go than stagnating in one location.
Today is a rain day so I’ve been hiding in the house with my blog post, podcasts, video games, and laundry. Then there is dinner tonight that I’ll be helping with.
On the part time cosmetology employment front my schedule may change to 4 days off with me working Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. HR emailed me with this today asking what I thought. I’m not going to complain with this suggestion. Ironically this may be ideal for me right now as if HR has ESP!
Meanwhile mom is likely repeating my foot injuries, and I’m going to need to take another hiatus from my business blog.
She made a podiatrist visit, needs an MRI, and will likely also have ligament surgery on her left foot. When people talk about Twinkie Day this is not what I wish to see happen is my mother re-living my experience of foot injuries.
There will be zero time for me to focus attention here as I have to put my attention and focus back on family health as my priority alongside my part time cosmetology employment. This is just a head’s up to my regular blog followers! Fingers crossed; I’m sure she will be fine through this.
I just would not wish foot fractures, ligament surgeries, or anything on my worst enemy right now! I’ve lived these, and I don’t want anyone to go through this because it’s ultimately just not a fun experience or adversity to overcome! If anything at this blog has helped you please support my business if you can or desire to do so! I’ve tried to proofread this entry, but am short on time. If there are any errors my sincere apologies. Sending you much love! 💌
