I happened to love both Alice in Wonderland and Labyrinth growing up. Go figure!
Tomorrow I turn another year older, and I’ve been leading up to this by utilizing Solar Return charts. I managed to rummage through the list of asteroids stopping at Born (13954) wondering what or how one would interpret this in a chart. Could it be of any significance?
I don’t believe anyone has rightly plopped this into any sort of speculative astrology studies so my curiosity became even more enlarged when I saw the degree it was sitting upon. The asteroid itself is the discovery of one Freimut Börngen born in Weimar of all places who is a German astronomer known for discovering some 519 asteroids and studying galaxies.
Some ideas for how to interpret this asteroid that might be possible could be the concept of what natural born talents do we incarnate with, what new beginnings lie before us, and what are we birthing into consciousness or the 3D.
Archetypes here could be the tarot trump The Fool who is just setting off on their journey. For me personally we find Asteroid Born has stationed direct in my 1st House of Pisces at 22° with Neptune (opposition) and semisextile Saturn.
The Fool in symbolism is all about the unexpected adventures which lie on the horizon yet require leaps of faith and encourage our growth. It’s not always a literal adventure we’re departing upon because it can signify a spiritual venture.
In careers it can signify new opportunities, in love it can caution against impulsiveness yet not missing out on true love, and in finances it can teach one to exercise caution as they might be taken advantage of.
Generally it is a representation of fertility, pregnancy, and new life when we turn up this tarot trump in any reading. As long as anything is well thought through and researched never be afraid to take a chance. Keywords for this tarot trump include innocence, freedom, originality, and spontaneity.
It’s the Sabian interpretation that made me intrigued for it is given as man bringing down law from Sinai. There is really a more esoteric and metaphysical reality to this placement that I would have to decode for others.
The metaphysical interpretation of Sinai stands as a deep ravine or precipitous cliff where God/Goddess reveals themself giving one their first impulse to lead others out of Egypt and this high place within consciousness is where we come into communion with the Divine often depicted as being given the Ten Commandments.
We could learn much from others within these topics as well as find our own personal gnosis. A few useful examples that I’m willing to share which I’ve ventured to study include the following.
I’m warning you there is a lot to digest, and yesterday I was already ingesting plenty of other studies to feed my rather insatiable appetite in an attempt to get up to speed on what I felt I was lacking in understanding as well as innerstanding.
Nonetheless I’m sharing this so that blog followers might glimpse and further educate themselves on some meatier topics rather than remain left behind themselves.
- The Ten Commandments Part 1 and Part 2
- Is That Involution and Evolution or Evolution and Involution?
- Pentagrammaton or Castle/Seer?
- The Cosmic Christ
- The Cults of Science and Religion
- Monad and Labyrinths
- Saturn and the Lessons of Karma
- Symbolism of Saturn’s Hexagon
But ultimately within my chart we’d have to look a little deeper for answers. You see the Solar Return is telling you what will happen, but the house is telling you where it will occur.
So if we glance at the 1st House we’re looking in the mirror and asking ourselves what do we see. Well we see ourselves through the face we have been showing the world for the duration of what will be one year only because all “this” is what is happening in our lives in the present now moment.
Our persona is a temporary overlay of changes experienced, but we know that the notion of “self” has many layers much like an onion. We can display as self conscious, self centered, self important, self controlled, or we can present our best self. Do we open up to the world or set a barrier against it?
This is all about how we feel we need to be right here and right now. We get up front and personal especially with regards to independence, self awareness, assertion, and new approaches to life.
We’re neither gullible nor prone to pursue the glamorous superficial interests of others because our attitude becomes sincere and sober. These placements place direct confrontation in the arenas of real versus ideal, reality versus illusion, science versus spirituality, and realism versus faith.
For example, are we going to become the mystic or fundamentalist or will we politically lean more left into Communism/Socialism or more right towards a different form of groupthink (a very important topic covered in previous blog posts on the damage of propaganda or brainwashing the masses into hypnosis/psychosis) in the pursuit of social justice, civil rights, and collectivism as an offshoot of misaligned unity consciousness.
Maybe we start unmasking the deception in an attempt to stop polluting the collective consciousness with disillusionment. Could we find enough compassion to help those in need?
Success only occurs when we take a careful discursive approach through strategic skill and efficient organization to inspire an attitude of respecting individual rights/liberties and seek out to remove the wasted loss of human potential that has been ongoing. Whatever the approach we take it’s little to do with ego gratification and more to do with generating a beneficial change.
This degree is about getting slowed down against one’s will which can result in a great accumulation of frustration unless the right attitude is focused upon. The chart holder is to become non-reactive and to allow one’s creative impulses to flow with and around all obstructions knowing that whatever appears to be going against one is there to increase one’s ability to be non-attached.
Accept what comes, allow it to leave when it’s time, and know that what will be for one comes effortlessly. The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A blacksmith creating an ornate garden gate.” This degree is about making the best of even the most difficult situations.
And to do so, of course, one has to go out and find all the most difficult people and situations that can be discovered. At best this degree is a hard worker who is doggedly determined to turn around even the most seemingly nonredeemable state of affairs.
The dangers here are getting worn out/burnt out as hard working becomes abuse as well as continual failures creating successive layers of frustration until a mountain of it has built up.
The key here is adopting the right attitude. If the attitude is bitter, egotistical, cynical and self righteous or hard like the blacksmith’s iron then the goal will never be reached. If the attitude is loving and receptive to guidance by higher forces then the iron can be heated, worked, and will yield to fulfilling the blacksmith’s creative vision. Work with guardian angel Mehiel and daimon Flauros.
Daimon Flauros corresponds to the Two of Pentacles, Venus, Capricorn, and Rose. It can be said that this daimon is one who will share great wisdom with those who they consider worthy of respect. There is a strong connection here to the fire element and the art of divination. This protective daimon is often utilized for removing troublemakers from one’s life.
Flauros usually ensures that anyone who is creating chaos in one’s life get lost or take a hike. Not one to allow anyone to be tempted or attacked by others this daimon actually loves talking about the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine while balancing one’s physical, mental, and spiritual consciousness.
It is said that Flauros is specifically connected with justice, love, and new beginnings while raising one’s IQ and aiding in the development of a retentive memory. If you’re dealing with anyone who is back lashing due to a fragile ego you may want to work with this daimon. What they really need is a restorative blessing.
In reality this degree showcases for the chart holder how interpretations allow us to enter unknown territory where the surface level mask is removed and the skills we have are honed. It’s unwise to take preconceived thoughts with us into the jungle for we are entering untouched lands usually.
In this jungle, however, we must guard against the constantly swarming insects who leave welts and bites upon us. If we succeed at deterring their venom we might feign off dis-ease. If we are exceptionally lucky we land with the ever famous “get out of jail free” card from Monopoly no longer locked into superficialities with an opportunity to live our lives authentically.
There is no fixed stars upon this degree to really work with at present. With the above in proper perspective this degree can work with White Jade and utilize the affirmation I release negative self doubt and accomplish my dreams.
My step father has brought home a rather large 3D printed red dragon for me as well as tiramisu for mom and I’s birthdays as hers is on the 29th only three days after mine. If you’re curious about the interview I think it went well, but I won’t have anything official until Friday when they reach out to me with either the yes/no I’m receiving the position. They want someone to start immediately or well I was told yesterday. 🤞
There is some competition in the game therefore I’m going to let it be and try not to fret over matters because it won’t do me any good. I’ll try to think positively while being patient as I’ve not heard back on either position I’ve interviewed for as receptionist in attempts to relieve myself from the toils of retail with my sometimes cranky neuropathy/foot.
I’m not sure that she’s feeling this birthday vibe though; my mom that is. 2022 has been a very rough road to traverse with quite a lot of potholes along the way. And, um, well the Pikachu in the above image I’ve still not taken the time to paint a face upon him. Oops! May you have a larger than life Monday. Happy vibes sent your way. I have a surprise for tomorrow’s blog post to celebrate the next lunar phase.
And today I corrected a typographical error in a much older post. I need a proofreader besides myself.🤗💓
PS: I’ve also corrected a link above. It appears that I made a boo boo! So the dragon reference now correctly directs to the appropriate location.
