Self Examination Saturdays: Of Dragons and Magnetism

“How can you tell how much a dragon weighs? Well, they come with scales.” – Unknown

Thanks Shoebox! Family and friends seemed to enjoy this birthday card. I kept thinking it had something to do with Rahu, Ketu, and astrology!

Sometimes you start to really wonder who, what, when, where, why, and how can it be possible that so many synchronicities or coincidences keep following you around in life? It’s time to take a deep dive into mythology, spirituality, and occultism that has given chase this last week to its own tail via underlined hyperlink text.

I know it seems utterly annoying, but really I want to share with my frequent as well as new blog readers what I am studying to help them grow in knowledge also. That is why I constantly reference the underlined hyperlink text as an essential part of what I’m showcasing every time I compose or write.

🌘🐉🧲☄️

Astro.com features some really unbelievable speculative astrology, but in light of our recent Leo New Moon as well as my birthday I decided I would be game and stretch myself into the fictional realms of re-investigating the Great Attractor first discussed in May of 2022.

I’d previously made notation of the Great Attractor, and then today I saw this otherworldly perhaps not even real Infrared Dragon. Both can be found under their additional objects feature of extended charts within the list of fixed stars.

The Infrared Dragon unlike the Great Attractor came to my mind for multiple reasons, but first because this theme was rather recurrent during my birthday from the 3D printed red dragon to the card my step father bequeathed me with as seen above.

The follow up to this anecdotal theory being that if Ketu as well as Regulus rule Magha nakshatra and we previously discussed precession of the equinoxes whereby Regulus transitioned to zero point Virgo then couldn’t we investigate some theology.

After all most spiritual texts deal in astrotheology as well as metaphyics/esoteric lore. Is that dragon, Draco, or nagas?! I began to really question certain themes online, in magazines/newspapers, or via the tell-a-lie vision recently with reference to mainstream media as well as the supposed truth community around dis-ease as of late.

Reason being no one was realizing how the neural linguistic programming of our propaganda machines and/or corporate institutions were preying upon the public. The problem being not enough people can decode to recognize they’re being “pwned” to use some older slang.

I said this before you have two options in life; fear or love! It’s your choice how to operate your 3D experience in terms of if you ascend/descend or evolve rather than go through involution.

These tidbits may be older, but they certainly spoke to this theme of where my mind has been going in circles perhaps with Virgoan analysis paralysis. August 23 after all would be slowly approaching us after the Lionsgate of 8/8/2022.

This one is pretty “touchy” though and even as I’m enclosing it I really want my blog readers to understand not everything that I read or share do I always 100% agree with either. When on the internet sometimes we have to agree to disagree from time to time with certain beliefs that don’t add up for ourselves.

Although I’m fully aware of what atavism is as well I’m hugely or rather largely against human trafficking, sexual slavery, and other forms of debauchery especially that which deals with children or those not yet ready to effectively understand consent who may be taken advantage of and thereby abused.

In the act of rape after all grown adults can’t seem to even comprehend the definition of consensual so how can we always expect a child to fully or functionally not be victimized/traumatized as well. This goes very well with the videos I watched recently on where my Jupiter was in my Vedic chart within Ashlesha nakshatra.

The full hour to hour and a half video I located was quite insightful in explaining the gandanta between Cancer/Leo which makes sense if anyone observes the differences I have in my Western/Tropical or Vedic/Sidereal placements especially for the Sun as well as the Moon or other planetary placements.

You see within the theology of Revelation we find the story of the red dragon as a heavenly sign often times describing the constellation Virgo and the remnant of Israel. It’s the esoteric story of a red dragon who is perfectly poised between the legs of the virgin preparing to birth Christ or Universal/Cosmic consciousness via the birth canal who will have this depiction of the adversary lying in wait to devour the promised child.

Roughly around September of 2017 Jupiter was placed here and some people took liberty at that time to spread rumors of fear porn around the configurations depicted in the as above so below. But why? Because fear and sex sell! It’s all about profit, money, and sometimes even corruption! Karma and dharma again. Some simply don’t care about morals/ethics believing much in life to be meaningless because they enjoy nihilism or hate idealism. Some take great pride in eroding societies or the good of others.

“A determined cat has furtitude.” – Anonymous

These socks were a birthday gift. The tag says “hotsox” which sounds like a pun on hot sauce to me also.

Perhaps I reference hot sauce with “hotsox” because we had lunch at a taco restaurant where a sign also read “Tacocat spelled backwards is tacocat.”

Metaphysically the entire book of Revelation, but especially Revelation 12 is dealing in the Mother archetype through Wisdom or Sophia by allegory with a prototype of what many call the Divine Feminine. To some this astrotheological representation is of the Moon reflecting the light of the Sun which governs the tides on Earth and woman’s menstrual cycles.

There is the added layer of the Virgo constellation which pulls from the Greek or Hellenized Leto pursued by the dragon Python escaping to the island where she births Apollo and Artemis.

What has been missed by several is the Sethian or Ophite take that speaks to a basilisk astral god or Abrasax. Another hint to Regulus as fixed star as well as the studies I’ve extensively done on being born with Magha nakshatra for my lunar placement in the Vedic system.

Deeper proof of this might be seen in Nag Hammadi texts. These parallels deal heavily in the old Demiurge theme, but really go further to Egypt again with the hints to Isis, Osiris, and Horus.

βασιλεύς being the etymological equivalent of chief, master, king, lord, patron, and a mythical snake like dragon/tree dwelling lizard of the genus Basilliscus (basilisk). It is via the Latin etymology of Regulus that we find the connection to βασιλεύς and basilisk. Abraxas is another word play that derives from Coptic and Hebrew through Har Brakha or blessing.

Depicted often with the head of a rooster, hawk, or lion, the body of a human, and the tail of a serpent it is Carl Jung who in 1916 via The Seven Sermons to the Dead denoted that this displays the union of opposites into one being which is best displayed as the union of the Christian God and the Devil. The Yin Yang being a far better representation of this from Monad to Dyad and vice versa.

Before we look upon some astrology for the day we can now comfortably return to a smidgen of information further on the Great Attractor for those who have not been regular followers. This vast black hole larger than the Galactic Center sits nestled in the heart of the Milky way. Located within Sagittarius this anomaly has been described as the source of roughly two billion light years of our Universe/Cosmos.

Astronomers believe it to be both creator as well as destroyer acting as an energy which draws everything nearby towards it yet at the same time sending out multidimensional consciousness in the form of light which is downloaded via proper attunement of the Crown chakra in those that are awakened enough to receive from this hologram of truth. Therefore any planet or point in a chart shows when a soul takes to task the lesson of working with this electromagnetic field during their incarnation.

Lunar Return Chart for the Great Attractor and Infrared Dragon

While today I took great pains to focus upon a Lunar Return chart via Vedic/Sidereal designations I did notice a great many aspects in my Western/Tropical placements ranging from trines, quintiles, oppositions, semisextiles, and sextiles alike. But to get a more present comprehension I wanted to really focus and hone in on what was presently transpiring.

Therefore today what we would be investigating is the Great Attractor stationed within my 3rd House of Scorpio at 19° opposing Venus, sesquiquadrate Mars, and trine Chiron the Wounded Healer. The Infared Dragon, however, is nestled within my 1st House of Libra at 3° trine Mercury and Saturn, opposing Mars, square Pluto, and sesquiquadrate Venus.

Comparatively the 3rd House is transportation, communication, thinking patterns, and education particularly the delivery of messages through reading and writing or even phone calls while the 1st House deals in self awareness, the physical body, new beginnings, and how we initiate in life.

Put another way this is where one is always telling people what should be otherwise obvious and common knowledge which leads the audience to have an “ah-ha” moment of enlightenment. Experiences are transformed by taking ideas from one area and applying them to another.

These placements are summed up as the colossal free spirit encouraging others to enjoy life everyday without regret. If we do not find professions that suit our creative talents and love of enjoyment we may develop an aversion to hard work and responsibility.

We should not overextend ourselves rather we need to approach more of life effortlessly. If we appear mature beyond our years or even demanding/bossy of others it is only because we seek to bring to any environment hope and healing by merging the physical with the metaphysical.

Hidden in these degrees we find the following messages. That which was only a concept moves towards becoming a living reality which awakens us to the community of higher beings in which we dwell. When we allow the energy of sadness to find a way out of our being we ourselves find a way into higher levels of consciousness. Giving into transformation causes the transmutation to become ever more pure and intense.

A deeply renewing effect on our mind gives one the ability to communicate more effectively with others. When we get above the illusions of this world, even to a small extent, we find an inner sanctum within that allows in light, air, and provides us with a place to re-energize ourselves. Work with guardian angel Yezalel and daimon Beleth.

Daimon Beleth is associated with the Five of Wands, Gold, Dill, and Leo. You can read or learn more about this degree by re-visiting my blog post from July 4, 2022 when we celebrated Independence Day.

You will benefit by working with Titanium Quartz to develop innate intelligence backed up with witty communication that bolsters your clairaudience abilities. When one accepts the patterns of thought and action they transfer these insights to others by processing facts, speaking honestly, and adding their own valuable insight. The affirmation is I hear and share messages from the Divine.

The chart holder sees things always in a way that is new and different from the norm. Somehow the usual assumptions and biases that most people take for granted just don’t stick to them. This is a wonderful quality and can manifest as great insight. Do not allow the negative reactions of others to cause doubt in what is possible to be given.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An inaccurate imaginative map of the world.” When there’s something the chart holder doesn’t know they can always make it up and through doing this can access what’s inside by a process of projecting it on the outside world. The challenge here is to not get reality confused with one’s speculations.

As more information becomes available in the map one can always modify it making for a more accurate and detailed picture. There is a great value, though, in speculation before facts are known for it stimulates further exploration which is something this degree very much loves to do. Work with guardian angel Rehael and daimon Decarabia.

Daimon Decarabia represents the Seven of Swords, Moon, Lavender, and Aquarius. This daimon will assist one with dissolving situations that act as blockages in life especially those where others are working to deceive. Decarabia specializes in all things feminine so often times one will learn about precious stones, herbs, and the astral planes.

This fixed star is upon Nodus I in Draco the Dragon. At one point this was known as Al ‘Auhakan or the Two Black Ravens. Kabbalists associate this with the Hebrew letter Mem and the tarot trump Death. Didn’t Odin have two black ravens? I guess this goes with the mead on my birthday as reference to Odin’s Skull that I was also given. We have not finished the mead yet though.

Benefits of Citrine for this degree will express as a necessary rebirth where success, clarity, and energy helps one cope with difficult problems by developing new concepts that harness the energies of The Sun tarot trump. The affirmation is I let the past go to embrace today.

We’ve had honey as well as bumble bees. Secondarily, many paper wasps as well as a cicada killer wasp. Thirdly, we have had several swallowtail variety butterflies and a regularly visiting hummingbird in our zinnias.

Then there are the squirrels, a stray cat (cats are always venturing through the garden stray or otherwise), and several green anoles or other lizards as well as some exceedingly large grasshoppers recently. Above is a honey bee, harvested roma tomatoes, a black feather, and various plants.

Being that I chose to look upon this Lunar Return chart from a Vedic/Sidereal aspect I managed to distill the corresponding nakshatras to both placements. We might best surmise from this that the Great Attractor is within this speculative venture sending messages through the Jyeshtha lunar mansion which can be further elucidated via the following whiteboard video.

It is sometimes seen as the archetype of those who feel born to dominate or tell it like it is which I definitely realize I tend to have a severe streak of bluntness sometimes.

The Infrared Dragon would disclose a different disposition altogether in that it would ask that we dream the new into being, but deeper than that we begin to find here the concept of “Earthing” takes center stage pulling from Hasta or the hand which has located the spark of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within itself as well as all things reflected yet seeks fervently to manifest the intangible where creation might be witnessed by way of our five senses.

Here we can view meditation and programming technique videos to help flesh out some concepts we might find fascinating.

When you hear “Earthing” think of grounding where our skin needs actual contact with the soil, water, and other conductive surfaces that imbue us with a mildly negative charge because in our modern ways of life we are pretty disconnect to the planet building up excess positive charge. When we add the negative charge in proper proportion we neutralize the states returning to harmony/balance.

For me the act of gardening allows for this and while with my myriad foot injuries I don’t generally walk around barefoot because I have to kinesthetic tape my left ankle or wear orthotics with running shoes it is through constant contact with caring for my plants via my two green thumbs that I’m told I proudly have I gain a lot of contact with our planet especially doing this organic.

Some believe this process aids in reducing inflammation, chronic pain, and lowering stress. There can also be seen improved sleep/circadian rhythms, improved adrenal health, and less contact with EMF when we step outside of the confined areas permeated with constant technological advancements.

I hope everyone paid a particular case of attention to the above description for the Libra 3° in that it mentions speculative astrology is done purely for doing things against the grain or as they call it the norm. It is an act of consideration where the limits of common in the box logic/rationale does not always marry perfectly with the imaginative.

As I have previously said in my studies I walk to the beat of my own drum which is why I’ve taken a solo participation path and generally don’t agree on every point completely with the standards of normative cultural approaches. Somewhere I read that Ketu is a liberating classroom that very much prefers to get out of the limitations others continue to impose on consciousness.

Mine looks much more like a melting pot of soup or a tossed salad! It may taste pretty bad to some while others may really find that the chef is just eccentric!

The Infrared Dragon might be relating as I said above to the September 2017 fear porn display courtesy of countless proponents of theories online all due to something NASA of all organizations put on the world wide web. Virality and groupthink sometimes just encourage unhealthy digestion more like grabbing a Pepcid for heartburn on the account of GERD being triggered.

Videos around this time period showed the close proximity of what the Skyview Infrared Telescope located precisely near Virgo, Leo, and most assuredly Regulus which again brings me back to my consistent musings of being born in Magha nakshatra.

Remember I mentioned eccentric chefs and meals that may be unappealing above. I forgot to state that it could also be a ramen or stew when we reach for absolutely anything still edible yet unspoiled which may be utilized as the leftovers found within someone’s refrigerator in an attempt to not create waste.

Jupiter at that moment in time was in Libra almost exactly aligned with what many wanted to say was the Revelation prophecies. The only decent themes one person posited through esoteric understanding was that the prophet or savior being born in today’s societies is being targeted the moment it incarnates which is true because our consciousness is faced with a continual barrage of dogma and legalism or limiting beliefs cradle to grave.

Like myself they took notice of the Virgo Supercluster as well as a few other pivotal locations in the heavens. I covered my lunar nodes prior at the very beginning of my blog entries when I was just setting out in here. However, let’s all get real about something.

Those may stick with us for life being the natal representation, but we must not neglect to look at the present energies of any transits be they daily, monthly, or yearly. Ironically Ketu takes no prisoners in the aim to remove attachments. What Ketu does support is a rebuilding or a starting over, but only after you’ve learned to let go or be dragged through the mud first. Ketu guards moksha, liberation, and is a strict instructor.

Have an introspective Saturday and best wishes! 🧐💕

I did not secure any changes in employment as of yet. I’m not complaining. I’ll just keep looking for opportunities and putting myself out there. Ultimately retail is not going to be something I’m going to wish to continue in long term with the strain it causes me via being on my feet all day for several hours each week. I really hope to secure something full time in administrative/reception at some point. You know goals to strive for.

Things are somewhat calming down in life for a bit even at my part time cosmetology job for now. Sleeping on this entry to return for proofing later has allowed me to gain further insights and clarity to share/expand a bit further what I perhaps really wanted to get on paper so to speak even if that paper was digital in nature. Lord knows I mist-titled my blog entry with “reflection” not “examination” which prompted me to change my URL slug as well.

Never blog on a day where you’re full of brain farts if you’re battling your own perfectionism complex.

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: An Energized Cavalier Fuels Our Journey

“Sometimes destiny is so cruel because you’ll never know where it will take you.” – Unknown

Is it all just a game? Who knows, but maybe the underlined hyperlink text will help fill in the blanks for you! Ready, set, get mouse clicking! Thursday comes early as I have work tomorrow at my part time cosmetology job…

♞🪄🎲🎰

I used my Tarot of the Witches deck today and received the Knight of Batons/Wands who embodies the active/creative side of the Divine Masculine motivated and moving us with swift action towards our goals. Often displayed in full armor on horseback the Knights of any courtly tarot deck signify the powers of the Hebrew letter Yod as well as the element of fire when we speak to the batons/wands.

Esoterically this particular Knight is referencing the lightning flash associated with Chokmah displaying the qualities of wisdom and raw uncompromising will. We will usually find on this particular card in any tarot deck a black horse with the attributions of Mars ruling Scorpio 20° to Sagittarius 20° best emulating the constellation Hercules as seen bearing a club.

We might see the element of air through wind which carries him forward. When this card is received in the upright it signifies swiftness, a person who is hard to pin down, travel, and philosophy. We should guard against rushing things. There may be a situation ahead where decisive action is called for. Watch your instincts and emotions ensuring that what you follow nurtures your inner true self.

The Knight of Batons/Wands reaches deep into the psyche illuminating darkness through The Sun, but if our goal is not something worthwhile we may be putting our energies into that which is not productive causing harm to our general health and spiritual growth. It is associated with the 51st Hexagram.

Hexagram 51:

I’ve edited this card to place a rainbow above our Knight as well as displayed Egypt for a little more significance, but I am sure a few won’t recognize these particular allegorical symbols without a few clues. It happens to deal with much of what my continued blogging through much of 2021-2022 has spoken about in detail.

We could also investigate this through the game of chess, but I’m sure some may simply be uninterested. Have a victorious and blessed Thursday! 🔥🎯💯

Self Examination Saturdays: Feet as Seen Via Netzach and Hod

Those Birthday Cards Family Gives Aimed At Humor Circa 2020; Milk Mustache Cat?! (Meant To Remind Me Also Of One of My Cats No Longer W/Us)

After my foot fractures my podiatrist told me to give up all of my shoes which were not beneficial to the well being of my feet. For a woman this is not very easy due to the dictates of societal fashion. For example, when I worked in medical malpractice and personal injury law I was usually in heels with suits be they pants or skirts. I do recall the only time I had to file a case at the federal courthouse where I live. Must have been some sort of rite of passage as no one told me 8th Street was only commercial parking so naturally that day was agony. Unlike the county courthouse where I could easily parallel park around the building I had to park blocks away and “hoof” it back to the federal courthouse in my heels twice (walking to the courthouse and back to my car after I filed the legal documents). Needless to say both journeys caused horrific cramps in my legs from the shoes. Sure they make women look attractive; someone conveniently whistled at me and an entire block of people turned around which at that age embarrassed me to no end. People generally were not paying attention to me growing up unless they wanted to humiliate me.

If you spent your youth being picked on by peers and were a wallflower generally you don’t respond correctly to that degree of attention at first because you’ve been ignored for aeons and seen as some sort of mutant with permanent repulsiveness. I think I legit wanted to melt into the sidewalk and disappear. The same happened the day I got out of college, picked up my lunch, and made the bank deposit only to have the wind pull a Marilyn Monroe (as the paralegals began referring to me) when I was trying to enter the building that the law firm was in with my ill chosen dress. Needless to say the first level Bank of America got flashed and I was rather irked at Mother Nature; who wrote this script into my life?! I stood at that door for I do not know how long holding down my dress waiting for the wind to stop. As soon as it stopped, I reached for the door handle, and sure enough the wind decides to go rogue rather than cut me any slack.

I actually have a tote in my closet full of old shoes I’ve not gotten rid of which are more heels I can no longer wear. Attending events you generally look strange now because you’ve been relegated to running shoes only by your podiatrist due to the now lovely orthotics you’re forced to wear to help with your osteoarthritis and plantar fascia post fracture and ligament surgery. Maybe I should ask who invented some of these poorly designed shoes that offer no benefit to the anatomy of a human. These don’t really look good for formal events mind you so I detest when I have to “dress up” now because I’m instead reserved for comfort or athletic apparel. This also makes job interviews awkward for me as I’m self conscious of it and feel like I have fashion don’t catastrophe. It’s not like I can explain this conflict to the person interviewing me because they don’t give a you know what, but I feel like they’re critiquing me when I’m looked at. And again it causes me to feel inherently uncomfortable. Yes, this probably sounds silly to some. My life as a child grew up around an interest in fashion, makeup, fascination with hair color/changing hairstyles, etc. thus you would have to get around my perplexing mindset. I remember in high school at my summer job even having one girl ask me for permission to ask one of the guys I was friends with out. I looked at her like she was on drugs because I did not get it. Why would you ask me for permission? I don’t own the person. I’m not their mother either. Seriously?!

I felt we were friend zoned. She felt there was inherently something more because he hugged me every time I came to work and said he liked me because I changed my appearance all the time always re-inventing so he never knew who was showing up everyday. This carried on until somewhere in my mid 30s at which point I went through a change. I began realizing all the chemicals were making me sick so no more hair dye and all of my makeup I became aware of animal testing, petroleum, and other “baddies.” So I also opted for minerals and a more au natural look. No more rainbow hair or bright zany eye colors after having been a cosmetologist who owned her own business. I stopped getting my nails done and have ever since enjoyed leaving them 100% bare because I no longer smell acetone or other toxins all the time which were also providing me with ill health including yellowing of my finger nails as well as toe nails. This matches when my short stint on Twitter incurred a Vedic astrologer asking me if Covid changed my fashion sense. I remarked being unemployed and trying to begin an online business meant I sit in pajamas with a bun head and no makeup most days if I don’t need to interface with anyone of importance now.

I love it because as a child before peer pressure this was who I was. A “I don’t give a bleep” carefree little girl who also some days refused to comb the snarls/tangles out of her naturally curly hair and just went out as a wild child. My view was the opinion of others did not matter at that age. Then the constructs of other people alter your entire mental landscape and you lose yourself to people pleasing. Only now I do prefer to wear makeup when I go out in public if for nothing else than I’m 42 and with no makeup everyone mistakes me for someone around ages 16-26 which makes me again feel peculiar. Someone remarked once that I reminded them of their teenage daughter so I for some reason mentally took offense. I probably did not want to be perceived then as immature as my inner critic went berserk.

I should accept it as a compliment, but I’ve learned I am terrible at accepting compliments and instead I self deprecate myself. The negative self chatter of others was internalized by me. I’m working on learning to just say thank you instead because I’m horrible at it. One person’s perspective is never the same as other’s especially if you’re me. I also don’t assume someone hugging me is necessarily harassment so again where she saw closeness between us I saw nothing more than blossoming friendship cause maybe I was really incapable of taking cues also because frankly I lacked confidence after all the bullying I endured.

Now here is where this gets well I’ll call it humorous because I’m not sure how to define it. In Kabbalah the sefirot of Hod and Netzach represent a connection with our Solar Plexus chakra through anabolism and catabolism. All the sephirot are likened to different parts of the body, and Netzach and Hod are likened to the two feet of a person (i.e. the right and left foot). The feet are usually only the means for a person’s activity. While the hands are the main instrument of action the feet help bring a person to the place where he/she wishes to execute that action. Hod connects with prayer as a form of submission where instead of conquering the obstacles in your way (Netzach) you subdue yourself to the obstacles. Hod breaks down energy into various distinguishable forms and corresponds with intellectualism, learning, and ritual. Netzach is the power to overcome all barriers/limitations and corresponds with emotion, passion, music, and dancing. Both find balance in Yesod known as the world of the unconscious where various energies created await their expression in the lowest world of Malkuth. The archangel of this sefirot is Michael and the daimon is Samael.

Recall I said when I was sick I had dehydration, heart palpitations, sore throat, and heartburn amidst a potential UTI which thankfully the UTI turned out to be nothing meanwhile mom is recovering from pneumonia. We have an ah-ha moment!

What to do with all those pesky underlined hyperlink text… Zip around on a broom to various pockets of the world wide web! 🕷🕸

Old iPad Pottery App; The Game Said To Make A Broom!

With Samael we find connections to the shadow realms. While seen as an adversary this is actually where we find transformation occurs be it a broken system needing to be reformed or correcting wrongs in our world. This actually helps unblock the Sacral chakra as well. I found several various correspondences, but am listing bloodstone, hawthorn, and sandalwood.

This is described as meditating in the wilderness, beginning to understand, using the energy that surrounds you, creating some sort of a form (the form of a God or a symbol) to relate to, and using this symbol to contact that intangible energy once again. Hod uses music and dance with Netzach to reach the higher levels of consciousness. I danced more in high school than I do now. I took four years of dance or drill team as well as was a member of the Color Guard. Not so much now; I do more walking especially when I worked as a personal grocery shopper. Speed walking due to the crazy speed/efficiency metrics required to keep my job. There were other metrics as well which had to be met if you expected to not be on the chopping block.

I decided today would be a good day to look at this symbolically again in my life. Lo and behold we’re talking about legs as well as feet today. My blog posts are building on something here each and every day. Perhaps reflexology would be a good idea for me to expand into soon also.

So right and left foot which is the only means for your activity. Your hands are the main instrument of action while your feet are a vehicle which brings you to the place where you desire to execute an action. Strength in Netzach is your potential to be victorious, but in Hod fear is present in overcoming perceived threats. Hod deals with empathy therefore it asks how do you truly listen to another person, express gratitude, and develop humility. Netzach is your perseverance in not settling for less. Now which foot has had all of these injuries with fractures and ligament surgery; the left or the sephirot known as Hod. My stronger right foot Netzach has been what I’ve been leaning on to support me through my injuries whether on crutches or knee scooter. Netzach is said to be the archangel Haniel and the daimon Baal.

Baal corresponds with the 2 of Wands, Sun, Aries, and Frankincense. This daimon ties in with the solstices as well as fire festivals bringing groups of people together. Ideal for a creative spark or instructing in matters of the heart when sought for wealth it should be wealth which is manifested via creative projects. I’m envisioning Beltane honestly. Others disagree which what we have to realize is that with syncretism and not having proper contact necessarily with the ways of one’s ancestry most people are doing reconstructionism to find their roots.

The bird who dares to fall is the bird who learns to fly.

Ironic that when my high school performed in the Rose Bowl Parade the Color Guard carried maypoles (we’re number 21 on the list). I kid you not because I was smack dab in the center of the band formation marching with this ginormous maypole for the equivalent I was told of 7 miles on New Years Day. My position meant family recognized me on television when it aired. I was also recovering from having had the flu that year so I felt exhausted by the end of the event as the school had an entire week in California planned. We had been to Disneyland to perform in a parade, Universal Studios, and we were out all night New Years Eve at Medieval Times. I have a story about the bus ride back to the hotel that night when someone pissed and moaned about closing a window which was barely cracked open. I was attempting to sleep and my response was for them to essentially shut the bleep up. The entire bus went quiet and not even the chaperones said anything. That moment of I need sleep, I’ve been sick, and I have little patience so give me some silence now or else. I was drained of all energy by the end of the week literally.

If I remember correctly due to the UIL someone failed a course, and I had to be the replacement for their position in the formation. Most everyone in Color Guard who had the large maypoles had two people beside them to switch off with as they were heavy to carry with their decorum. I had no one as alternates or backups meaning I walked for that approximate 7 miles in the parade post flu hoping not to be dead on the asphalt in the middle of California in front of everyone. The challenges I get in life; what was the Universe thinking? And yes our maypoles had a crown of flowers, but some of the ribbon was actually holographic plastic that reflected prismatic rainbows and would blow in the wind and fly in your face actually hurting due to sharp edges whipping you. Very unpleasant! I recall also giving a drill team member a dirty look post parade fatigue when she complained her back hurt. Excuse me, but WTAF! My maypole was double to triple the weight of yours. 😫

So we divert back to shoes again! What brand do I wear everyday? Nike! When I went shoe shopping recently I picked out the Pegasus Air Zoom Shield running shoes primarily because when I look at shoes I stick to dark solid colors so that they blend well with most of my wardrobe. These are now primarily worn in the garden or around the house as they’re my older pair of running shoes. When I went looking for a new pair of running shoes I picked their Run Swift running shoes (smoke grey with fireberry). It’s the symbolism that I unconsciously did not recognize initially which now baffles. What do I mean about symbolism. We have the mythology of Pegasus as well as the constellation in space while fireberry can relate to the Hawthorn. Not to be confused with the “strange” rabbit holes I keep finding online. For the number of “theories” I find online which send me into the world of “don’t visit here” is actually huge. I still believe some of the internet lacks any proper oversight into it’s overall maintenance in terms of credibility if you catch my drift. Thankful for VPN is all I can say.

Pegasus or Run Swift? Cue the Jeopardy Anthem!

Some believe this symbolically represents the second coming of Christ consciousness via Revelation 19:11 as reference to the constellation Pegasus. Meanwhile in 1995 a Sun like star was discovered known as 51 Pegasi b as an exoplanet. Some felt it was a prototype of epistellar Jovians (hot Jupiters) ranking in the top five stars most likely to support life around 2006. In the human body Pegasus eludes to your hippocampus as Poseidon is the father via the hippocampus referencing a sea horse. Stedmans medical dictionary defined the hippocampus as a white eminence in the brain just like Pegasus is the white horse which we must remember this mythological creature was sacred to the Muses through Mneomosyne/memory. Your hippocampus is responsible for memory. Thought patterns in the human psyche/consciousness manifest into the physical via the Muses as related to meditation. The hippocampus is the Ammons Horn or Amen. What about Kalki Avatar as another representation of these themes? Ignoring my antiquated Muse meditation app/headset of course which I rarely ever use anymore…

Now the Run Swift struck a chord with me in research I’ve done regarding Surya and the chariot which if we were to consider Merkabah might be the same thing under different cultural terminology. We actually just bought a medicinal herb encyclopedia I have yet to read, but just peeking in it you can find a lot of helpful information. I happened upon the following regarding fireberry and the Hawthorn tree.

Surya has a horse drawing the chariot named Etasa which means “Swift.” Sol has Árvakr and Alsviðr meaning “Early-Awake” and “All-Swift.” Surya is described as possessing swift horses in the Rig Veda, but the number varies widely from two to a hundred. Helios even had a quadrigaor with four horses. Being a Leo Sun sign with a Virgo Moon again on the Western zodiac wheel with the Vedic as a Cancer Sun sign and Leo Moon always seems to mean I find myself unconsciously attracting weird symbolic items to myself like a strange magnet. You’d think I’d eventually manage to put an end to this, but nope. Read enough of my blog posts and like in Beetlejuice I’m strange and unusual.

Astrologically you can chart Nike for yourself via Asteroid 307. I kept this very simple today with just an Ephemeris. Nike is at Capricorn 7° which is my 3rd House. This is my communication style whereby I analyze what I will write or speak beforehand. I can’t stand to make blunders and usually within reason prefer to ensure what I present is relatively reliable although spirituality tends to run a gamut between the subjective as well as objective. My level of concentration tends to be strong, I excel at planning/organization, and view knowledge as something of practical worth. Work with the guardian angel Umabel and the daimon Zagan.

Zagan refers to the 8 of Wands, Sun/Mercury, Sagittarius, and Storax. Zagan transmutes things into their opposites via curbing addictions. Got a situation you’re unhappy with; Zagan will flip it on it’s head. The gifts of working with Zagan can include:

  • Bringing out the potential wisdom in those you employ.
  • Making friends see the error in their ways.
  • Making sound judgments when investing money.
  • Speaking with wisdom and wit in situations where finances are at stake putting others at ease.
  • Protection against people who perpetuate fraud and scams with fake means of monetary exchange or identity theft.

This degree might appear to us as being bandersnatched by a flash of intense insight. Our ordinary understanding of our perceived reality is seized by an awareness of acute energy stopping us in our tracks with a sudden realization or urge to do something. It can appear as if we’re acting via lunacy, but often something is hidden which we are developing an awareness of. When we point out the structures of things to others while clarifying information we bring forth lost or forgotten information which can enrich our present knowledge. If you were to peer into your animal side while glancing back from the depths of your subconscious while befriending it you would be capable of civilizing it. The more you can own it and love it the stronger you will connect yourself to the power of your Earth being. The challenge is to to make friends with and integrate this wild inner being.

Happy Saturday (so tempted to make this into Satyrday)! I can’t believe January is potentially over, but that’s because of mom and I being sick for several weeks and having lost time we can’t makeup now. 🚶‍♀️🌞

PS: I forgot the image of the Ephemeris so I’m adding it below!
