We’re still holding at the age of 43 and never served on a jury believe it or not. Jury duty was cancelled by 11:30 AM CST through e-mail notification today from the county I was summoned within. And here someone told me my luck had run out. Not yet!

We’re going to have a brief look today at Asteroid Justitia (269) before I crash for the night. Looks like tomorrow is actually another day off for me before I work my Saturday alone at my part time cosmetology gig. But as we go about an astrological journey I wanted to enhance the post just a little because I had a surprise sighting on my way home from work today.

Being that I’ve learned I am the company’s designated floater means that the store I worked at today is within a neighborhood jurisdiction exactly five minutes from my house. Naturally as I drove through this neighborhood which is not the one with which I reside in I got to experience a total of 8 vultures sitting atop a fence. Not your normal kind of sighting where I’m from in Texas.

I decided today to look up some information regarding the number 8 as well as vulture totem animals. Let’s have a quick lesson on this combination to see what we can gain from something otherwise abnormal in my book.

Vultures:

“You’re under arrest for doing your best to rob a bank of its treasure chest.” – Unknown

Now that we’ve established that for the day I wanted everyone to take a good look at the Goddess Justitia before I showcase her location in a Lunar Return Chart in perfect timing with our upcoming Full Harvest Moon which I previously wrote about.

We all know I’ve written before about the precession where many have stated Regulus which rules Magha nakshatra alongside Ketu has moved Leo to Virgo or that my Western/Tropical natal Moon, North Node, and Lilith reside in Virgo. I also did a blog post regarding Spica.

As much as I try to navigate both schools of thought I managed even to miss this one not that long ago in 2022. The theme certainly resonates loud and clear! Then again what of it is what my blog readers or followers might ask.

Well if you’ve been here for a while reading any of my random ramblings annoying or otherwise enlightening about my life you would remember I mentioned I once handled 500+ federal law cases as an administrative link to medical malpractice lawyers for breast implants with silicone poisoning.

Today my mom informed me that I might get a chance to re-experience my past for the FDA has now begun to issue warnings about the scar tissue which can surround breast implants leading to cancer for women.

I guess we were not fighting hard enough as I pooled or rather combed through countless medical records of women sometimes looking for the manufacturer numbers to settle their cases while determining how much money they were being awarded for the damage rendered them.

Or the women whose botched jobs led to gangrene in their breasts causing them to have their nipples permanently removed. These are the stories now that their cases settled which without giving out names I can tell women and men alike of including one woman who died at Christmas before we could settle her case despite the fact that I would be on the phone with these women or their families often being sent photos because when it’s personal you develop a relationship or bond with these clients.

If law offices in Texas were not making it mandatory that I be bilingual when Spanish for me was a nightmare in high school making me not want to pursue it again I would make an effort to go back in since I’m looking for receptionist or administration positions again.

I used to temp downtown even for some large law firms in my 20s often off 6th and Congress where I live. It was a commute that I am not sure I want to take again though in my 40s. A lot has changed in this city!

You just don’t know the many experiences that I’ve had because I don’t take the time to share them with everyone that I meet in life online or even offline because I’ve learned most people actually really don’t care.

My circle of influence has shrunk a lot with age. I’ve realized that written or verbal words from me mean little and it’s my actions that will speak louder to get my points across to the deafness and dumbness of those who have dissociated or numbed out.

Then again I never have understood why women subject themselves to breast implants even after I watched my high school best friend’s mom have hers removed from the silicone poisoning with tubes draining her lymphatic system only to be permanently disabled after.

Nothing is worth that for what I call fake beauty, but I’m that oddball who values natural beauty over fake. Strange as that sounds given that I do wear mineral makeup when I am in public.

At home I’m often though no makeup, hair in a bun atop my head, and in pajamas or exercise wear. I only dress up when the need arises otherwise I’m all for comfort and just being me rather than worry about my ego.

This is why I don’t take selfies either. The blog may appear narcissistic, but really I just like to teach people by example that there is more to learn from astrology than they take for granted. I digress I wanted this to be a short blog post. Let’s go find our asteroid shall we…

Lunar Return Chart for Asteroid Justitia
Natal Chart for Reference

Imagine that I’m seeing yet another Kite in this chart once again! What we see is that Asteroid Justitia is in the 8th House of Capricorn at 8° trine the Sun and square Jupiter. How would this be best defined one might ask.

The obstacles of one’s past must be removed by eliminating the barriers between you and the goals which you have been trying to achieve for a long time. Significant karmic events will be experienced which have a lasting impact on your everyday life.

This is a time where Saturn asks that one acquire knowledge and experience while becoming disciplined during a busier time of serious duties that require commitment.

This transit within any chart can last from 1-3 months to a total of 2 1/2 years all depending upon any retrograde movements of Saturn. Saturn is called the ruler of destiny so we pay the consequence for karmic debts. Anyone who has had a negative or destructive influence on your life is immediately removed from your circle.

A key position in any chart one is asked to start a new diet which builds healthy habits for not just the body, but the overall emotional stability and mental clarity of the chart holder.

Opportunities present themselves for teaching and travel. Persistence is required to see results as shortcuts are not tolerated during this period of life. Health wise the biggest areas of concern will be the teeth, skin, and bones. Focus on self improvement while becoming more patient with thinking outside of the box to find alternatives to reaching your goals.

You’re required to develop new skills while recognizing that many who have been in your life thus far will begin to impede all your endeavors interfering with your plans by wishing to exert control over you or limit your actions.

They will become psychic vampires who draw upon your physical energy and financial resources. This is a chance for you to apply moral, ethical, and legal norms to your ambitions. Your body will be more vulnerable than usual requiring that you be more cautious.

“What do you call a stuck-up criminal going down some stairs? A con descending.” – Unknown

In times of hardship this degree keeps on going. There is a complete acknowledging of and a conforming to limitations. A continual compromising as it moves on through confining or frustrating situations by doing whatever has to be done to maintain a forward flow. A gentle flexible interaction with the world’s densities is its power.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A snake charmer.” The only way you can charm the snake is to get in tune with it. This is not about having power over the snake rather it is about melding to its consciousness and following its dance.

This degree is adept at following the dances of others while tracking with them in such a way that discord and misunderstanding are let go of at least for awhile so that an exchange of energies can occur which always promotes deep understanding. Work with guardian angel Iahhel and daimon Valac.

Daimon Valac corresponds with the Nine of Wands, Mercury, Sesame, and Sagittarius. Treasures are revealed by this daimon to those working with Valac especially with regards to employment. While the mention of serpents exists this is often much more to do with learning kundalini yoga. One of the greatest ways this daimon in particular helps anyone is through their spiritual journey by pointing them in the correct direction.

This year Pitru Paksha will be on September 10, 2022 exactly with the Full Harvest Moon folks! For Leos one will be abundantly blessed and they might see the return of one of their Pitrus whom they loved and still miss. Virgos are asked to say good riddance to all their insecurities and phobias as the Universe/Cosmos knows it all. This year our Pitrus will provide one with strong protection to care for our fears at their root level.

I attempted to explain this to a co-worker today about epigenetics after I shared a a tarot reading with my immediate family through my mother and two friends as Magha is also ruled by the Pitrus and I inherited my maternal/matriarchal ancestry records when my maternal grandfather passed away.

But I don’t think anyone even understood what I was talking about so I’m going to leave everyone with the following in the hopes that they’ll try to understand this. I’ve also tried explaining that my DNA runs the gamut of German, Danish, Ashkenazi Jewish, Ethiopian Jewish, Middle Eastern, and Anglo Saxon.

We immigrated into the USA according to our records around the 1800s I believe with my great grandmother’s maiden name being Lehman(n). I imagine for a few that will ring some bells and for others they simply won’t be capable of connecting any of the dots.

They don’t know how to form the map that I’m working on when a tarot reader can pull out of her reading having never met me that I’m working on karmic healing of the family line because of epigenetic trauma due to things like the Holocaust despite countless naysayers and religious or political or historical know-it-alls and haters.

That probably means my entire middle and high school education on Hitler and Stalin to them or even on the Holodomor is also a bunch of hogwash while we split hairs and create even more racial or spiritual divisions. All of which at 43 frankly I’m fed up with and is one of many reasons I’ve stated I’m apolitical now while opting to no longer vote in a system that in no way represents me.

I literally no longer waste my time or energy on some topics or even people anymore. I just do a cord cutting ritual or return to sender ritual and wish them the best never to look back. I’m actually done with many people anymore sadly.

You have to do you while I do me. Sometimes we’re simply not meant to continue in the same soul family because we’re no longer compatible or the lessons were learned whereby there is no need to keep repeating them.

Even in beauty school I was educated extensively during my aesthetics education about Rwanda. My mother spent time educating me about Cambodia. There is no way I unlike others am ignorant or in denial of genocide!

Why don’t I have time? For the same reason years ago someone questioned me about a Jewish symbol I wore as a necklace who was a customer. I guess they could not even fathom that it is used in the Heart chakra as well.

Meanwhile they antagonized me over my first name trying to ascertain I suppose if I had a brain or they just enjoyed being someone whom I wanted to quickly and politely get out of my cashier line with little discussion. You reach a point in life where you finally decide I’ve had enough with ignorance expecting for humanity to wake up.

This degree sits upon the fixed star Facies which is a nebula within Sagittarius the Archer. Taken via the Latin verb facere meaning to make or do something it actually symbolizes the positive nature of Sagittarius to climb mountains, race cars, enter the ski jump team, and so forth while breaking a few bones along the way. Kabbalists have associated this fixed star with the Hebrew letter Vav/Vau and the tarot trump The Lovers.

My step father is a a Sagittarius in my life who has raised me since age 5. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and an instructive Friday. Sending you best wishes even if I come across as cranky or really butthurt some days. 😌❤️‍🩹

My patience at times still needs a wee bit of work I suppose especially with those I grow tired of babying or pacifying in life. I’ve learned that self love or care means I don’t have to keep taking it anymore.

PS: The tarot reading that was shared was a video tarot reading. It made passing this around a lot easier when the message was received because aspects of the words the tarot reader I chose used mirrored my Full Harvest Moon blog post. When you’re in sync you’re really in sync!

To those who say it’s just psychological warfare frankly I’m sorry, but you are jerks!

This week I also took photos in the garden asking for help identifying a weed growing in my beans. The rains made it huge progressively choking my beans out. This morning when pulling weeds we removed it.

I have identified it now as tomatillo. We did not plant this. How did they arrive in my garden and from where?

Wisdom Wednesdays: Sunny Side Up Anyone?

“Bunny, I’m home.” – Unknown

I seriously contemplated waiting until Saturday evening or Sunday to publish anything on the Full Harvest Moon, but then realized I want to take some time off perhaps those days.

I feel really overworked at present like I could use a temporary hiatus with trying to compose in an effort to keep this little writing project of mine going or generating interest/feedback towards my astrology business.

This autumn we’re doing the bunny hop backwards in time folks via the underlined hyperlink text.

🐇🌕🌓🌑🐇

If we were to look back just a short while ago we would see that we were on a rather intriguing lunar phase which shall be followed up on September 10, 2022 by a Full Harvest Moon. If anyone read the paragraph about the Piscean energies permeating via Neptune with the urge to merge evoking a purging process then this follow up should be right on point.

What Watch defines this as a reinforcement of faith which can open up a new environment through the revision of ideas back to Source when one takes a critical survey of life.

But most people do not like to take a critical eye to anything because let’s face it they feel as someone once said about Ketu natives to use a Magha nakshatra label I was given “seen.” Like they can’t pull one over on us because we can see into a person’s soul depths to analyze them.

It’s been a perplexing week for me personally. I finally spoke to upper management with my job only to learn that if I’m feeling taxed by my workload I should inquire to have 10 minute breaks which are not really breaks. In essence I should go sit at the front near the register and clean the area or rather clock out then leave the building by going outside as if I were a smoker which takes no strain off my legs/feet mind you by standing out in Texas heat, rain, or whatever.

I don’t have a smoking habit so this is another one of those to save face I just replied “fine” in response until I secure a new employment. To boot I was informed that my hours won’t be increasing, but might in fact decrease ostensibly. I’m the assigned store floater so I won’t have a permanent location and will be consistently moving between two or more stores with the keys to the locations.

Sure this all sounds great that someone trusts me to run their locations often alone in such a capacity, but frankly all of the above left me irritated as really no one discussed these arrangements in my interview process. Sometimes the little things count as well as does actual open communication to ensure everyone is on the same page.

I’ve had schedules given to me where at one location I’m often actually finding myself for three days out of the week working 9 to 3 PM CST or working two days out of the week scheduled 9 to 5 PM CST while one location cuts my hours sending me home early at 3 PM CST promptly. Essentially when I had open availability human resources made the decision of what they would allow only to after my mom’s health improved keep my hours permanently in this reduced capacity.

If I had wanted to inquire about increasing them the feel I got was even in good health I’d be denied at this juncture. With some of the gossip that buzzes in this company I can see why some have said those who came in made it roughly one to two weeks and left.

As for me I need to secure new employment before I abandon ship which is why I’ve promptly been assessing the listed positions for receptionist and administration in various fields. While I would gladly take full time I’m resolving to the fact that in our current jobs market I might still be resigned to part time because frankly what is on offer is not atypical anymore.

Ironic that everywhere I’ve worked I have always felt as though I deal with the most random if not illogical at times of corporations, authority figures, and hypocritical rules/business cultures. I get the feeling the employer does not even know what they want suffering from indecisiveness.

As usual I have to digress to the fact that this Full Harvest Moon sits within Pisces at 17° which as you can rightfully guess has something for me to re-assess. Pisces being my South Node in Western/Tropical astrology as well as my 5th House it also tends to reside in the 6th House when we look at Vedic/Sidereal astrology.

September 2022 Full Harvest Moon
“Eggs make great storytellers. They tell some cracking stories.” – Unknown

So what of it? Well our 5th House speaks to imagination and what makes us happy in terms of pleasure achieved through any creative endeavor. Do you favor well in games of chance? How do you deal with matters of the heart? What artistic abilities do you bring to the table?

The 5th House as Purva Punyasthana is one’s past life meritorious deeds. If one does not feel complete and content with life their mental well being is on full display by this position.

Ah, but that 6th House makes it all the more tricky. Your daily habits, routines, and responsibilities are crucially impacting your health and well being. Here we find service/employment, obstacles, debts, physical strength, enemies, and determine if we have put on a brave face to fight with our challenges.

So while the purging can occur on a big picture scale for the collective there is an air of personal that comes to the forefront. Do you need to be more careful or judicious as to what you let enter your life? Is it time to firmly say goodbye and good riddance to something or someone that has held you back? Are you waking up to some astoundingly obvious realities?

This degree indicates it is time to concentrate upon what gives your life more meaning. Therefore this purgation is all about who is measuring up to their spiritual and moral values. If you hold a position of leadership or power within any sphere of life ask yourself and consider if others are acting in an appropriate manner to address the needs of the people below them. Or are they operating from an ulterior motive?

When people dislike their duties or the expectations of others it often leads in fact to someone having to leave, retire, resign, or be ejected. The thing about purgation is that etymologically this is defined as exoneration, cleansing, and forcible removal.

To the dismay of a co-worker who believed this employer valued me and would not possibly throw me under the bus I hope they can understand why my intuitive radar has been red flagging me about so much within this company.

You see purge is taken from Middle English purgen as well as Old French purgier and Latin pūrgō all of which means I make pure or I cleanse. Therefore or thereby we need to purify our motives if we want a better representation of moral or spiritual values.

That requires a reexamination of sincerity in any person, corporation, community, or situation. We can not achieve trust, sharing, or enjoyment when we lose sight of an ideal through ego issues not properly addressed. Anyone involved who failed to live up to their responsibilities as either employee or employer, for example, is best considered for the future and one’s peace of mind to be made over.

If you think of my entry yesterday explaining Alice in Borderlands through the costuming of Heart and Diamond card suits then you’d recognize the theme I can intuit. That theme is that on any level collective or personal when corruption, scandal, deception, and coverups occur it threatens a collapse. I mean what do we all call an “ah-ha” moment other than a light bulb turning on in our mind’s eye.

“I don’t think I can ever replace my pet rabbit. There’s no bunny like her.” – Unknown

Well if we actually understood anything about our seasonal astrotheological celebrations we would know that these structures only exist as a means for bringing people together who share a common link. What is that common link one might ask.

It’s a need to feel connected to one another via a celebratory atmosphere. Within staunch traditions that many feel must stringently be upheld we find a boundary which can be colored with our own personal flair contributing to a soulful event.

This brings forth a fresher approach in which freedom is allowed to develop at its own pace during the celebration. To achieve this one has to have a generosity of spirit that evokes togetherness and creativity.

Easter in particular is the theme of sacrifice and rebirth as much as it is actually speaks to individuality and freedom of expression that is not taken through some strictly dogmatic code of behavior! Lets break down Easter into something we have been missing. The East means rebirth, love, trust, and renewal while the ending of “er” speaks to uncertain to falter.

In any rebirth process we all feel uncertain and can falter so the message of this time is that we should trust in our own heart to help us find the way forward. While I’m sure many people don’t quite understand my irritation it’s because I thought my body would be stronger by now post medications and surgery/fracture, but well it’s not.

I thought one day I would make it to the 30 hour weeks to qualify for insurance benefits, but that won’t happen if someone is working against you to dock your hours from all levels of management. I don’t have an exact familiarity with the laws of my state aroundo paid or unpaid break allowances, but I’ll probably research these shortly.

I’ve never been told to clock out for my 10 or 15 minute breaks by any employer until today as most of them within Texas granted them to us paid stipending them out based on the number of hours worked in any given day so rightfully I tend to sense we’re having the dilemma of when a manager docks you from an eight hour to six hour shift to send you home early this removes paid breaks as a benefit/perk.

What I do know is that I’m generally a good reader of people so even if to my face you try to pass off niceties I can tell if you’re stabbing me in the back. It’s not hard to know when lipstick is put upon a pig as they say.

I won’t get into the job market either because I work with one girl who can get away with breaking all the rules while sitting on her cell phone all day ignoring customers as I try to set a proper example in the hopes she will follow it to no avail. It’s not my job to discipline her as I’m in no authority role.

This is nothing new anywhere I’ve worked in the game of favoritism. Am I judging? Perhaps, but technically I actually do prefer to see other people on my team put some effort in rather than be lazy or appearing useless.

Other new hires upper management poignantly informed me were often no call no shows after completing interview or one day on the job which tells me either they hated it, found something else, or the authority figures were correct in that they were abusing the unemployment system.

As I’m sure many are tired of my complaining I’ll leave you with a little more detail on this degree in astrology. I simply wanted to show that when these energies display they can take on any number of tones at a group as well as individual level playing field.

Before I do that though I should mention that I had an unlicensed customer who I could not sell to that was less than thrilled because she mentioned that at least three Sally beauty supply stores she went to were closed with notices about not having enough staff to maintain the store hours to service their customers. So when someone says people do not want to work or are abusing the unemployment system I do think there is grain of truth to this.

This degree has an intuitive sense of how to protect itself and how to filter out influences which might be disturbing or disruptive to it. It is always able to find a space in which to work and has a special gift for clearing the atmosphere so that room is made to do whatever needs to be accomplished. And if it follows its impulses the result will always be magic working through it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A kangaroo and her baby who looks out from the mother’s pouch.” When a baby kangaroo is born it immediately crawls into the pouch which is like a second womb containing a nipple that it immediately affixes itself to. For kangaroos birth is a slow gradual process that happens in states. It is the opposite of a creature like the horse who falls out of the womb and within minutes is standing up.

The image signifies that this degree at its highest experiences the Universe/Cosmos as a Great Mother who eternally offers safety and protection. It may feel isolated and different from others, but with usually no sense of alienation. It knows that we are all children who are being raised and taken care of by a reality that is utterly intent on our reaching enlightenment. Work with guardian angel Harahel and daimon Orias.

Daimon Orias is connected with the Six of Cups, Moon, Scorpio, and Sealwort (Solomon’s Seal). This daimon specializes in teaching one the virtues of the planets/stars. Orias helps one transform their physical self by eating healthy, exercising, and accessing their personal willpower. If you desire to improve your self esteem or secure a position of high esteem it’s advised to work with this daimon.

The Saturn and Helix Nebulae in Aquarius With a Message You Missed

What can we learn of the equinoxes? That they represent a time of equal light as well as equal shadow for the Sun crosses the plane of the equator towards its relevant hemisphere. This allows for equal day and night on Earth. This symbolizes equilibrium for all where we should achieve balance. This allows for one to become more aware of their immediate environment.

Naturally this means our level of understanding and perception changes so it is the most optimal time to speak to our loved ones. Energies of all kinds are at their peak for us to recognize that we’re not stagnant, the struggle is as much within as without, we should prepare for change, take a time out to heal, and planting season has led to a sign of harvest.

Further Analysis:

To have a successful harvest rid the mind of depression, anxiety, and fear. This time encourages a new journey, new beginnings, and new phases of your life. Acknowledge that Mercury will be retrograde which can create disturbances especially by toying with our emotions. Winds of change will begin to swirl so spend time alone by getting away from technological devices, distractions, and other people.

You don’t need to own or possess other people to achieve fulfillment because you have everything to be whole within you. Expect possible chaos surrounding appointments, phones, and for there to be mental confusion alongside potential argumentative natures.

Travel plans may be glitched so it’s wise to hold off for a bit on any major decisions, purchases, and judgments. Focus instead on ideas surrounding love, beauty, and peacefulness.

All relationships shall be tested at this time from business to marriage to friends/family. Check in with your subconscious and unconscious because whatever you planted, mulled over, and so forth is coming to fruition. Wondering when the Full Harvest Moon occurs where I live; 4:59 AM CST.

You see we need to look back and inquire about something right now. How is your current reality the answer to the problems, thoughts, and vibrations you were experiencing during mid March 2022? The answer is one simple mantra known as just keep swimming.

New or exciting adventures and encounters may occur near this time. Trust your intuition while avoiding irrational thinking, overindulgence, and remember to honor your emotions while not getting stuck in them.

Please remember that as you may know my North Node in Western/Tropical astrology is Virgo so the axis is a meeting of heaven and Earth or rather a marriage. Therefore the practical and tangible meets the transcendent. Meditation is fine, but please care for your plants, help your friend in need, and take stock in life.

Ascertain non-negotiable needs, communicate better with others about your commitments needing to be reciprocal, and watch your finances so that you don’t overspend.

This degree sits upon Phi Aquarius within the constellation of Aquarius. This constellation in Latin is a loan translation of Udrokoos meaning the water pourer hence the affirmation of flowing in relation to the water element. We can also say this a time to recognize that Aquarius governs the legs from below the knees to the ankles where I’m having a lot of residual problems health wise.

If you additionally consider the death games in Alice in Borderlands this constellation deals with the astragals who were sheep thrown up in the air then caught in various manners. Within the human body the astragalus is a bone in our ankle. Ruled by Uranus this constellation is all about change.

Happy Full Harvest Moon!

I’ll see you sometime soon and best wishes at this time. 🥮🎑

The title of this blog post speaks to release and letting go of that which no longer serves. Everyone of us has baggage we acquire from past lives, relationships, traumatic experiences, and so forth. The key is to stop letting it limit our potential which I’m not always successful at, but I keep trying each new day.

The underlined hyperlink text is here to serve you the most important element; surprises!.

🌞☄️🌓

We had a New Moon in Virgo on August 27, 2022 which I’m beginning with today just briefly as I missed it with working my part time cosmetology gig which proved to be a rather unusual day for me overall. I’m beginning to understand why exactly I felt unseasonably off in terms of energetic flow having in fact even replaced my old chakra bracelet which broke back in April of this year. My new bracelet now with it’s beautiful crystals utilizes hematite as well.

My previous bracelet was Buddhist mala in nature and served me many years before it broke. I kept the beads, but never re-strung it leaving them in a dish upon my wealth altar in my bedroom.

Our New Moon is on the same degree as the Sun when this transpired where I live at roughly 3:17 AM CST which my What Watch astrology chart placed at a striking location of 4° with a time stamp actually of 3:33 AM CST for it’s full activation. And I’m sure many know about the number significance this portends.

I’m one of those strange one’s who sees the 11:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, and 5:55 combinations frequently. On registers every now and again I get $6.66, $7.77, and $8.88. This is what happens when your brain syncs into pattern recognition.

My astrology application had a fun description for this degree a little different than what some may be attaching presently which I have a personal synchronicity with that came to my discovery Saturday evening into Sunday morning. What Watch elaborates this as an Irish man dreaming of little people beneath a tree to depict an active imagination revealing the subconscious or unconscious realms of being to us via creative fantasy allowing for contact with our inner energies.

I liked this symbolism being that family recently told me a friend of my step father really enjoyed our garden that I’ve been in charge of every year believing it to be enchanted. We’ve certainly got the cosmos and zinnias as well as we’ve attracted honey/bumble bees, two hummingbirds, and butterflies.

I’ve talked much about inheriting my grandparent’s California king Oak tree bed and how mom as well as myself fall under the Holly (7/26 and 7/29) for Celtic tree astrology, but what about the elves of Yggdrasil. What we’re seeing here is also a push for truths which we never believed could reach the light of day.

For example, I’ve heard from Australians that a news channel on a major television station recently reported roughly only 10% of the reported deaths from the supposed dis-ease that transpired in the last 2-3 years were actually even related to any hyped up so-called virus.

This virus was simply a bad case of the flu they reported finally after we went through that time span of the entire internet and tell-a-lie-vision censoring the fact that before this medical term referenced nothing more than common colds/flu just to sensationalize and prop up the profits of the pharmaceutical or other implicated dodgy industries.

The cost overall of the emotional, social, behavioral, and psychological damage is quite severe. A great lab experiment occurred in everyone seeing how an over zealous moral or ethical code manipulated by what I call mass hysteria creates a huge lesson in a global shadow/projection of unbelievable proportions.

Something that I’ve spent this entire time cryptically speaking about realizing I’d possibly suffer for being too vocal with my own beliefs. Meanwhile my time previously in medical malpractice law educated me on why I’m just not so easily misled by agent provocateurs and psyops run by organizations with an agenda to fulfill.

There were risks I was unwilling to take by vocalizing a lot of what I knew on a personal level with my previous employment background because it would impact my family as much as myself. Such as members of the family being turned away from receiving experimental therapies when companies learn of our medical past or anaphylaxis risks because they don’t want the liabilities.

But the cult of this insanity would not allow for that to come out without it meaning reputation suicide for the masses. I was fighting another way by sending information out in other methods to those I cared about who needed to be alert and awake via a more cunning manner that drew less attention to self.

I stayed out of employment till it blew over and well I skirted the issue where I live by taking a different route that built instead a robust immune system whereby I almost never have gotten sick most of my existence.

The last flu I had was circa age 29 while instead I’ve acquired UTIs, allergic rhinitis, pharyngitis, and IBS or debilitating effects from toxic pharmaceuticals pandered to me as I’ve continuously spoken out about/against.

I’ve endured plenty of people who say I don’t believe you. You don’t have to because your karma/dharma is your own as is mine. You have not walked even one footstep in my shoes therefore you do not have my track record of experiences nor the track records of others who have also suffered at the hands of deceitful practices in fear versus love for power, riches, and other amoral vices rather than righteous virtues.

You weren’t the woman working some 500+ cases in her 20s for silicone poisoning from breast implants seeing the devastation to countless lives including the life of her best friend’s mom in high school who was poisoned in the same manner nor were you handling elderly care neglect as we did when I was administration for the legal office I was employed by.

That means the stories I have to share you have not heard except once when I briefly expounded on this at my blog. It is his or her story that will be the judge of most people’s actions truthfully. And whatever side you choose to stand on perhaps more people should learn to select the correct or proper one rather than the alternative.

It is also your own Akashic Records that will be keeping track of your actions. Some call this the Book of Life and reference various angels who were the scribes of such details while still others taught about the naughty or nice list when we once had Krampus. The way I see it the Universe/Cosmos will handle it.

The extent of fraudulence may finally come to light, but then that would be speaking to another degree right now where Neptune a planet of illusion through Piscean energies of an urge to merge sits on a degree symbolic of a purging of the first estate.

You see our nodes for the Moon as in my references to Rahu and Ketu of the dragon symbolism speaks to the battle between light/dark. The number of that news channel having much to do with the ending of cycles, closure, and vortex mathematics.

I became introduced to Jung quite a while ago so I’ve only been building upon my studies over the years while recognizing we share the same birthday (7/26). This placement is upon one of insights, illumination, and challenging our ability to ascend in consciousness where we can make our dreams a reality.

To do that we recognize that transmutation must occur with Mercury upon the degree of our Super Galactic Center having to do with merchants, trickery, thievery, communication, and the caduceus as previously written about. What age are many saying we’re closing out?

The Age/Aeon of Pisces is to be left behind for Aquarius after all. The world is a stage as they say whereupon many occulted initiations take place. And believe me when I say I already touched in January on Hygeia and Asclepius.

But you see this degree I’ve already covered when doing a particular asteroid study because it also lies upon the fixed star Sextant. The energies are potent including those of a Stellium, Grand Trine, Kite, T-Square, and Multiple Planet Opposition.

And I’ve already soap box ranted as I began blogging kind of cryptically about how deceived the masses were when choosing the indoctrination of fear porn over love especially that which would have been more heart centered than greed centered by peddling a groupthink brainwashing hypnosis of neural linguistic programming to the less educated.

“What was the cause of the veggie protest? An information leek.” – Anonymous

But let’s face it today I’m not here to just discuss the New Moon because we’re now on a different day of the week which means we should be shifting gears ever so slightly to a topic I’m happy to focus upon. Today we’re going to perform an experiment by looking at a Lunar Opposition Chart while plotting two asteroids with esoteric significance; Gold (4955) and Silver (5325).

Both of these asteroids are classed as orbiting between Mars and Jupiter, but I wanted to explain their significance in alchemy, spirituality, and/or metaphysics. If this New Moon pitted both the Sun and the Moon on the same degree in Virgo there is a correlation here.

Why and how? Gold is a representation of the Sun or Solar energies in many schools of thought while silver is a representation of the Moon or Lunar energies in the same vein. Wholeness instead of the dualistic cosmology we always adopt.

Social success or romantic relationships, stability or adaptability, Divine Masculine projections or Divine Feminine receptiveness, and why must we choose between these two in a Hegelian Dialectic/Divide and Conquer limited belief? Noble metals include gold, silver, copper, and iron in esoterics or inner alchemy.

Copper makes up the other Divine Feminine receptive conduit while iron would be the corresponding Divine Masculine projections as seen through the phrase men are from Mars and women are from Venus. Looked at through another ideology this is like the Yin Yang.

None of this is about gender biases because these speak to the energetic makeup of each of us in our ability to achieve, manifest, and give/receive abundance in the form most meaningful to us. Another aspect of this would be that gold corresponds to spirit while silver corresponds to life.

Copper thereby corresponds to attraction with iron corresponding to action. But why would this even relate to a chakra bracelet? Magha lunar mansion deals much with the Silver Cord which I was born into. Crystals take atoms to arrange into organized crystalline geometric patterns. The atomic geometric pattern is exclusive to each unique mineral.

Silver is reflective giving off more light as it is hit at 99%, but gold only reflects 95% of the light truthfully. Think about that statement for a little while and gain insight into what this means.

Functional medicine as I’ve spoken about with mom and I having been damaged by pharmaceuticals such as gabapentin, tramadol, cipro, and levaquin needs humanity to realize that in the past our crops were high in silver content as was drinking water which is now a noble metal almost completely depleted from our soils/water. The molecules in silver ingested in small amounts are ideal for better health.

Alchemy was a precursor to chemistry established upon the transformation of matter to prolong life. Sunday is the day of the Sun/Gold with Monday the day of the Moon/Silver. Most of society only values these noble metals as currency and investments, but silver is a favored choice for many other uses including conducting heat or electricity.

Nonetheless silver is also ideal for solar panels, stained glass colorants, water filtration, photography, etc. Stars in space at the end of their life cycle can have a weaker low mass supernovae which forms noble metals such as palladium and silver.

Alchemy was about an inner transformation or transmutation of our being metaphysically speaking where our kundalini rises. Ayurveda can sometimes be seen to incorporate water stored and drunk from copper vessels as therapeutic, silver as antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal, and lastly gold to raise consciousness, IQ, and to relax the mind/body.

Copper is an actual micro-nutrient needed for red blood cell synthesis, RNA metabolism, enzyme activity, and our hair skin, and nerve health. It was up until the 20th Century that many utilized silver to accelerate healing while warding off infections. These metals were seen as holders of the highest energies and celestial vibrations connected to Universal/Cosmic or Christ consciousness.

Lunar Opposition for Asteroids Gold and Silver

So what happened? What do you think happened. I don’t have to explain this do I really? Let’s get into the meat of the chart why don’t we.

Asteroid Gold is stationed within my 10th House of Scorpio at 9° conjunct Jupiter and sesquiquadrate Neptune. Asteroid Silver, however, is stationed within my 5th House of Gemini at 14° square Mercury and sextile Chiron.

Translations to follow! 10th House deals with fame, profession, prestige, karma, and authority. The Karma of the 10th House falls upon the triangle of wealth.

This house is used to determine if one runs their own business or works under someone else’s establishment. When well placed one may receive a promotion or recognition. It can signify great leadership abilities throughout one’s life.

5th House deals with intelligence, spiritual tendencies, creativity, children, romance, and speculation. This is further tied into past life deeds and the results of these making it a Dharma house falling upon the triangle of prosperity.

Were the fruits you bore in your past life of good or ill, will abundance come easily to you or be brought through struggle/effort, and what degree of evolution do you sit upon in terms of acting according to morals or devotion to higher aims.

One’s external conditions may signify the beginning of new projects which are far reaching bringing lasting satisfaction. Displays of confidence may be more pronounced when opportunities seized become successful. There may be a rebirth of hope as well as optimism allowing for one to move forward with great vigor.

This often takes shape through education, teaching, and the studying of topics which are beneficial to one’s growth. A broad mind should be centered around helping others not just one’s self. Just remain in check at this time seeing to it that with this placement one does not become lazy, sloppy, or neglectful of details.

One may be highly ambitious and should use their positions of power for the greater good. Often this degree asks that one take on a project whereby they repair/restore something that pulls them out from their own underworld depths.

Additionally one may take on mentally engaging observations of dysfunctional or unaccepted parts of themselves through shadow work which will involve them in concepts of language, communication, and cognition desiring to remove censorship with all it’s triggering limitations upon freedom.

Pluto promises change which usually speaks to the death/resurrection motif. Scorpio in particular is identified with the theme of a phoenix rising from its ashes.

This degree asks that one develop a proper method for reconciling the interior space of the inner life with that of the exterior space of the outer world because in reality the illusion of division is a lie; it never existed.

Inner and outer are not disjointed and the alchemical marriage brings subtle forms in from the void to the security of physical accomplishments within a sturdy set of thoughts where freedom of movement accompanies known desires in a full light of consciousness.

Both of these degrees are even further elaborated upon below. Before we get there though I’m sharing the following PDF with a question about the dentistry Sabian symbol. What of the Hebrew letter Shin as in tooth/teeth in terms of esoteric significance?

“The moon and dollar note have one similarity: both of them have 4 quarters.” – Anonymous

What seems far away is actually very close. If one looks more deeply into what is near there is much to be found and appreciated. The distant galaxies may seem impersonal, but it is to be remembered that they are looking back, and if we could see them clearly we would feel the deluge of smiles raining down on us.

Intimacy and loving connection is something we can have any time and anywhere as long as we allow ourselves to feel its call. The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A hand with six fingers.” Five is the number of the microcosm and six is the number of the macrocosm.

So this hand with six fingers is depersonalized. It becomes not the hand of an individual, but the hand of the Universe. Of course it belongs to an individual, but the Universe works through it and does so wonderfully as long as the individual does not repress the urge to give.

If this person does not believe in themselves they may hesitate in carrying out the will of the Universe. The solution to this potential problem is to not make self-confidence an issue. Even if one is uncertain and unsure the act of giving can still occur. No effort toward being kind is ever wasted. Work with guardian angel Sitael and daimon Vassago.

Daimon Vassago is tied with the Four of Wands (symbolism included), Jupiter, Cedar, and Aries. Often when we wish to increase our conversational abilities, gain social confidence, or quicken our thought processes we would wish to work with this daimon. Vassago is really good for giving one advice when they deal with particularly troublesome people to ensure negotiations work favorably.

Our garden Yin Yang uses two Cedar trees as the dots and we generally live where Cedar is quite abundant albeit more the juniper form.

The chart holder is always aware of what’s going wrong with communication. They know what’s not getting through and can be very persistent in continuing to try to hear others and make themselves understood. Steadily the chart holder seeks out the blockages to communication and tries to understand them.

As they do so their connectedness becomes richer, stronger, and progressively more healing to both themself and others. The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A sorcerer materializes an amethyst cross.” The cross signifies the present moment. One of the cross’ lines symbolizes the past and the other the future. Where they cross being the present now moment. The amethyst signifies clarity of mind.

The sound of drumming brings clarity of mind gradually whereas the clarity of mind happens instantaneously. Either way it happens this symbol can wake others up helping them to see everything in a fresher clearer light by merging with the present moment which is the place of freedom, power, and release. Work with guardian angel Jeliel and daimon Agares.

Daimon Agares connects us with the Three of Wands (symbolism included), Venus, Cinnamon, and Aries. Are you experiencing a series of awful luck where perhaps your reputation may be harmed or would you prefer to clear out a situation where others have been harming you/your loved ones? Then you want to begin a relationship with this daimon.

Ultimately what I read online, however, is that Agares is quite helpful in giving one green fingers/thumbs making them effective at growing green plants, herbs, and trees while seeing to it that one financially profits from their projects. This may not be quite what others were hoping for, but as for me as an organic gardener I’ll take it.

The Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall.

Becoming unfathomable that all there is are Wikis!

We have only one degree which aligns to two fixed stars within Corona Borealis in the Northern Crown; Nusakan and Theta. The constellation itself speaking to Daedulus who built an elaborate labyrinth to house the Minotaur. Seven youths and seven maidens were devoured as tribute chosen by lot. Theseus inserted himself as one of the youths in the lineup.

Theta is in fact a state of consciousness that some may not be tapping into, but I learned to quite a while ago. Somewhere after I abandoned life coaching actually because the program I chose to work with I learned was a scam that ripped me off thousands of dollars. People wonder why I keep saying throughout my writings that I’m not as willing to fall for trust games, cons, or scam likely.

I’m financially and debt free today with so many lessons learned from jerks that I have set some firm boundaries now. Screw with me and you will pay a price whereby I’ll learn to take care of myself without you. I’m a big girl who will figure it out on her own.

Astrological influences of Corona Borealis are that of cultivating gardens, growing flowers, and arranging flowers into garlands. Anthus in Greek is etymologically defined as flower while the suffix inth of labyrinth is etymologically defined with labrys the double axe being a term for one’s inner ear.

Latin Serta etymologically defined as wreaths of flowers speaks also to sorcery or the sorting of one’s destiny/fortune by drawing lots. Ariadne who fell in love with him gave him the famous thread enabling him to escape the maze where he took Ariadne and abandoned her in Naxos marooned on an island.

It was Dionysus (Bacchus or Liber) who came to her bringing with him help and comfort so that she might shine among the eternal stars having taken the crown from her forehead to place in the night sky. I’ve also previously blogged a bit about Dionysus in January 2022.

When Ariadne married Dionysus (Bacchus or Liber) she became his consort which references a crown worn by a Queen upon her coronation. The Welsh knew this as CaerArianrhod or the castle of Arianrhod referencing the term castellated which speaks to turreted like a castle. This was another epithet of Cybele. Roman poets thereby associated Ariadne with Libera.

These all became references to the Statue of Liberty through which we find a symbolic representation of Ariadne marooned on Ellis Island speaking to a goddess of freedom from slavery, oppression, and tyranny. Ironic that Liberia is a country in West Africa founded and settled by freed slaves is it not.

For it is all in association with those in ancient or recent times who are taken by right of conquest and sold into wearing a garland who are sold under a “crown.” That very crown Ariadne wore belonged to Venus. Thus creating parallels between victory and heaven-born Venus for Tellus as in Earth is bound to the sky.

Nusakan comes to us henceforth via An-Nasaqan and Masakin meaning the Pauper’s Bowl. This fixed star gives artistic abilities, a love of flowers, and is associated by Kabbalists with the Hebrew letter Daleth and the tarot trump the Emperor although I generally associate this letter with the Empress.

A great crystal to work with for these degrees is Pink Agate expressing a message of close examination, action, and prompt relief focused upon intellectual abilities through inquisitiveness and accuracy. A skillful probing mind allows for others to appreciate one’s skills, sensibilities, and credentials. The affirmation is I seek a catalyst to repair and restore well being.

May your Monday materialize εὐδαίμων! 😁💗

I’m still dealing with terrible searches online that result in useless results while some moron tells me it is optimized by artificial intelligence which is hilarious to me. That’s why what is returned back is nonsense or implicit websites full of malware/viruses. That is not optimization unless a crime syndicate is in charge of the artificial intelligence hub!

I waste so much time online for my blog posts with limited online resources simply due to shifty search engine results that often are fraught with garbage in garbage out!

If anything I’ve ever done has benefited you feel free to donate or purchase an astrology report. I did hope at some point to consider as my sidebar says to venture into making videos, but my financial priorities first and foremost will be going to an eye doctor and new glasses.

I have not gone in roughly 14 years. My family just honored me with a gift of vision insurance to assist me with this endeavor for which I’m really grateful! Donations also help pay for my WordPress plan which I’m not sure if I want to use the free domain for a year.

Seems pointless when I have my astrology business domain and do not want to pay for two domains just to have a hosted blog without “wordpress.com” in my hyperlink/URL. That is akin to double or triple taxing a constituent frankly.

Apologies for my sometimes less than stellar complaints, but I’m getting fed up with being nickel and dimed by as I said the avaricious or hyper inflationary fiat currency mismanagement systems we employ. Another topic for another day where I speak to the ignorance of such economies.

🌖🪐☄️🌎

I kind of had another one of those what to publish moments so I decided to attach this one to my recent tarot reading and previous blog post I composed about Virgo.

I simply ran an Age Harmonic chart for the fixed star Spica curious as to where the wheat sheaf/branch was presently in an offhand manner of filling the gap. Someone can tell me if it’s confirmation bias or a synchronicity later when they observe the quirks of what has manifested in my life experiences.

Most everyone seems to misinterpret a lot of the esoteric or even astrology’s purpose. In Virgo, for example, which resonates perhaps to the theme of the tarot trump of the Hermit there is a purpose found of integrating with the self. It is here that we seek a new beginning, a break from tradition, and new forms of life that leave behind our sense of helplessness.

All forms are temporary and transitory so we’re often seeking love through manners that may not always be healthy. The ultimate life goal being to learn unconditional love or love without attachment. This is the meaning often associated with spiritual or higher love. Virgo asks that we freely share the qualities we keep hidden from others.

Ultimately this is the only zodiacal sign represented by the Divine Feminine often representing creativity when in the Maiden aspect, nurturing in the Mother aspect, and intelligent yet sometimes pedantic in the Crone aspect. It is also the zodiacal sign known to govern our hands, abdomen/intestines, spleen, and nervous system.

This would definitely match much of my more recent health concerns including neuropathy post foot fracture/surgery. And as stated there is that belief for some of us albeit is not widely accepted that Magha nakshatra ruled by Ketu with Regulus due to precession of the equinoxes has transpired to zero point Virgo.

Hinduism often identified Spica not as a wheat sheaf, but rather as Citra with the symbolism of a bright lamp or even a pearl. Around 300 BC it is believed that Alexandrian Timochares observed Spica with Regulus and 150 years later Hipparchos would be indebted to the discovery whereupon precession of the equinoxes became at least a bit more widely accepted.

There is another lesser association by Kabbalists with Spica specifically through the Hebrew letter Gimel and the tarot trump The Empress.

Age Harmonic Chart for Spica

Spica in my Age Harmonic chart aligns itself in the 5th House of Leo at 11° biquintile Mercury and opposing Neptune. As I enter my 43rd year on Earth we find that this chart explores the areas of rectification. Kabbalists would refer to this as one’s personal tikkun.

For those a bit more familiar with Tohu during creation they would comprehend that this means one must elevate or ascend to a degree of holiness often through proper intention in mystical meditation, during prayer, or while fulfilling a mitzvot.

Essentially if sin is missing one’s mark to use an archery term one would seek to purify any transgression towards a merit. The goal being restoration to a proper cosmic order rather than allowing impurity to remain.

But these could become abstract arguments not worth getting too involved in for most of us. The reason being we would then fall into the online debates of gap, ruin, and reconstruction theories that are like the commentary one has still today with those who espouse flat Earth all over the world wide web that I vehemently avoid like the plague. I just don’t want to even waste energy in those arenas of discourse.

On another hand though we could apply this to our lives. For example, over the expanse of a lifetime on Earth we could experience seasons of blight, drought, and lack on a personal level be that psychologically, emotionally, financially, or spiritually. Other times we might experience moments where we feel exceedingly abundant, blessed, and grateful.

If we were to really grasp this we’d see that tohu describes the states of consciousness known as confusion and argumentativeness especially when we’re gripped with finding anything to be meaningless. With bohu we experience emptiness and the void essentially implying what we feel via our emotional body is destitute as if there is no return on our investments in life.

This is where we get the phrase all is vanity often found in Ecclesiastes. It is to enter a state of believing all effort in life is one of futility. Potentially one enters nihilism.

Spica for me could be best summed up as the following. I enjoy expressing my ideas creatively not simply understanding the mechanics of how I associate details in life or make decisions regarding the path I walk. Rather I avoid ego battles by being upfront and direct to reduce risk of being misunderstood.

The ego I’ve chosen to develop is mastered through spiritual gifts, compassion, idealism, and creative talents in writing, dance, fashion, and music.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do.” – Unknown

When the chart holder tries to control anything they find that they lose the power of being in the moment and true to themselves. They need to give up control and allow whatever needs to to flow to stream out of them. This can be scary to do, and if they pull back in midstream and attempt to reassert control they will find themselves stuck in an endless loop. Trust in the deepest layer of creative urges is the way out of the problem.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A boy removing a thorn from his foot.” Something is bothering the chart holder and they’re trying to understand it. This may be something they’re angry about or something they can’t stop thinking about. It’s impeding their forward motion. There’s a need to stop what they’re doing and investigate.

The stopping and focusing on one specific thing of this symbol is the opposite of moving forward with multiple areas of focus. To remove the thorn the chart holder may have to dig deeper. They may be writing all these stories because they are trying to keep themselves so busy that they can avoid the pain of the thorn.

In this degree there is always something the chart holder is very sensitive to and a need to locate as well as understand that sensitivity. Something is wanting to come out of them so allow it to do so. Work with guardian angel Harahel and daimon Orias.

Daimon Orias is connected with the Six of Cups, Moon, Scorpio, and Sealwort (Solomon’s Seal). This daimon is great for transformation of one’s physical self by acting as a personal trainer for one’s will to assist them in getting phyiscally fit/healthy.

If you’re looking for the motivation to eat healthy foods, take up an exercise routine, or upgrade your appearance then working with Orias is a plus. Other special areas where you might be assisted by Orias fall into learning the virtues of the planets and stars through the study of astrology as well as gaining respect in securing positions of high esteem.

This degree should work with Dragon Blood Jasper renewing their enjoyment of nature, relaxation, and carefree play while remembering to make time to enjoy the simple joys found in daily life. The affirmation is at this moment I am free, elated, and contented with myself.

Have a felicitous Friday! Much love and zaniness being sent your way. I tried to proofread, but am again very tired after a long week. Probably why I’ve been sleeping so hard most nights recently. Happens when you’re working more than one job plus other responsibilities. 🤗💖

PS: I had a small panic attack today when I realized I’m this huge freedom advocate especially as a free speech believer, but felt self conscious about my blog in terms of what I write/express. I realized I was feeling a need to self censor just to people please everyone else. Some days I dislike my brain/emotions because I swear I feel like I’m a hot mess. Is this even normal or have I lost my sanity?! Insert foot in mouth.

It’s worse when someone else encourages you to keep writing, and you’re in harsh self critique mode. Don’t ask you don’t want to know.

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: When Past, Present, and Future Go Camping They Argue

“I know all there is to know about abstract art. No-thing.” – Unknown

Let’s not ask too many questions and just let this one be. Underlined hyperlink text is hanging around to buffet your raft along the currents.

🏄🏽‍♀️💻🖱️🌌

Using the Hermetic Tarot briefly today I’m not surprised to see The Hermit otherwise known as Magus of the Voice of Light. Symbolized by the Yod, hand, and Virgo we see displayed a magical lamp above a solitary figure wrapped in a hood/cloak. The lamp itself burns without a wick or fuel sustaining it. Instead this lamp is kept glowing by the Universal fluids which radiate in all directions.

There is also a face burning within a golden triangle signifying fecundity of the infinite/eternal. Along the bottom of the card we find the Cosmic Egg with Spica, a wheat sheaf, as well as behind the Hermit a plant yielding forth its seed.

When we see a Cosmic/Orphic Egg we are using a metaphor for the Big Bang theory. Described as containment of pure light we will discover that some believe it to be identical to that of the state of the singularity before the Big Bang.

Being quite similar to the Aeon Sophia story within which the angel Sophia enters the void to create a mini world that mimics her origin, but it doesn’t last once the half God is born and rearranges the entire structure that caused/causes instability (the darkness entered into the pure light) whereby the egg cracks open inciting the explosion.

The snake wraps itself around the egg in a display of the primordial darkness surrounding the containment of pure light.

A masculine God (the powers of our current patriarchal culture?) rearranges the world in their image thus there now exists duality with a need to demand servitude; a trait of what occultists call the half God or demiurge. So this being the world where the darkness and light now are mixed together is how we see immediately in the Bible through Genesis that the snake appears in the Garden of Eden which begins the infamous chaoskampf or chaos struggle.

Pythagoreans also believed that the primordial darkness was to be the actual nature of our Universe/Cosmos. In other words no-thing should exist right now. Our existence is the result of an influence beyond this Universe/Cosmos.

Whoever arranged this world is believed by many to be a half God because the Universe/Cosmos is not built to last rather it is in fact doomed to the winter Sun, heat death, and entropy in which everything will return back to darkness in due time.

In this same vein of thought I am wondering if I should not consider the following Cosmic Egg spread one day and share it with my readership. That might become a lengthy blog post though as I’m far too detail oriented.

May you spend your Thursday not lost in the ambiguous that I do. I actually had a NDE at age 26 which I briefly have touched on months ago in a blog post thanks to being chemically sensitized. A rather unpleasant event of waking up at 3 AM CST with my tongue swelling, blocking my windpipe, and choking on my saliva as my body went into anaphylaxis and a cytokine storm.

Something that I wouldn’t recommend for others to try anytime soon unless you enjoy late night trips to the emergency room or scaring your family.

I also believe Barbara Pijan as I’ve previously noted explains our psyche best through the Vedic nakshatra I was born into. An area I’m constantly studying for myself and addressing. It would require people to comb through some of my earlier broodings/ruminations.

As I said before within a Divine Feminine workshop/group I joined over a decade ago I tested poignantly as the ecstatic and alchemical aspect of the Goddess personality type if that says anything about my psyche. 🪦💭

✨🥳🎇

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.

Age Harmonic Chart for Asteroid Autonoma

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.

“How will fire make money? Fire works.” – Unknown

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 astral body, 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.

NGC 6240 in Ophiuchus

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.

Our roma tomatoes seem small to me personally, but have ripened to a nice shade of red. I’m thinking I will add a bit more fertilizer tomorrow.
Lettuce being a cooler weather item has officially gone to seed and flowered.
Neighborhood squirrels rejoice. All the peanuts you have planted in my carrot bed, wildflower bed, and a pot in the front garden are getting larger with flowers.

I can thank my neighbor whoever they are for feeding them although peanut farmer was never on my list of accomplishments. The squirrels have spoken to my dismay!
The purple, yellow, and green beans are still trying to produce despite the triple digit heat.
Sunflowers are still thriving! Bees are still collecting the pollen as well.
I spent all of today between laundry and harvesting sunflower seeds from spent sunflowers I cut.
More zinnias which attract also the hummingbirds and butterflies.
The garlic chive times 15 which survived winter storm Uri did not flower this year.
Sweet potatoes are ginormous and we have a lot of vines.

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! 🧨🎉

Sign Spotlight Sundays: Virgo the Whole Unto Oneself

Virgo – August 23 through September 22

The Sun sign of Virgo is said to represent perfection of creation as well as a point of departure for the return of an incarnated spirit which will be undertaken at a decisive moment in a cyclical transit of life to which one submits via their need to express themself and acquire full conscious self awareness. Virgo is a major key player within the shifting of our consciousness into the New Age/Aeon for here one’s life purpose for which they incarnated into matter begins to be realized and now desires to shift from personality satisfaction towards a more internal yearning to know and understand deeper spiritual realities.

The blended dual light of Virgo is one of wholeness where the two lights are seen as one which is bright and strong while at the same time is one which is faint and dim; a paradox. This light is distinguished via a waxing of one and the waning of the other. Virgo energy is the womb of time where God’s plan is slowly nurtured, matured, and brought into manifestation at an appointed time. Virgo is the epitome of the statement “the Christ within you, the hope of Glory.” At this evolutionary stage of human development indicated by Virgo is the stirring of the objective life within each of us. The life purpose of all Virgo Sun signs is to purify and prepare our physical form so that it is more receptive to light.

As we progress around the Great Wheel of the Zodiac the Virgo frequency stimulates us to feed our Soul through the qualities of introspection followed by service to others in a natural outpouring of one coming under the influence of their own Soul. Virgo marks the end of a cycle of purely personal development which involves engaging our lower self in a process of self transformation. The synthesis of these three aspects of the feminine known as the mental, emotional, and physical expression of hidden ever present divinity refines the personality so that it can receive the energies of the Soul and thus birth the Christ consciousness in the self helping to usher into the physical plane the higher energies necessary for planetary initiation. The Virgo mantra is I am the Mother and the child. I, God, I, matter am.

Assigned as a world server and guide for the entire race of humanity Virgo is the spotless Queen of Heaven and the mother goddess of nature. This sign symbolizes the complete goal of our evolutionary process which is to protect, nourish, and finally reveal the hidden spiritual reality which is to be a golden harvest that gives material abundance to all of the children of this planet.

From within esoteric Judaism and Christianity we see this best in the month of Elul. Elul is said to be the month of repentance, mercy, and forgiveness following the two previous months known as the two great sins of Israel (the sin of the Golden Calf and the sin of the spies). The four letters which spell Elul are an acronym for the initial letters of the phrase in the Song of Songs 6:3 which reads “I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me” as a sign of repentance and consummate desire to return to one’s soul root in God through a Divine expression of mercy and forgiveness. Elul is the month of preparation for the high holy days of Tishrei when Moses ascended to Mount Sinai a third time for a period of forty days from Rosh Chodesh. Elul to Yom Kippur is when he descended with the second tablets of the covenant. These days were the days when God revealed to the Jewish people his great mercy.

The Yod is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton via the ame Havayah or mercy. It is also the final letter of the name Adnut which encapsulates the name Havayah to reveal and express it to the world. The Yod is the beginning of the essence of Divine mercy and the end of the manifestation of Divine mercy. All created form begins with an essential point of energy and life force. The end of this creative process is as well a point of consummation and satisfaction. The word Yod means hand. The verse which reads “Even my hand has founded the Earth, and my right hand has developed the heavens,” shows that “G-d stretched out his right hand to create the heavens and stretched out his left hand to create the Earth.” The right hand is the point of beginning while the left hand is the point of endings. The Earth represents a consummation of Creation. The Yod of Elul is of special and particular note as the left hand is acting as the controller of the month’s sense of action and rectification. This is the final point of creation reaching its ultimate purpose and end where the Yod of Adnut perfectly reflects in created reality the Yod of Havayah or mercy.

Virgo the betulah symbolizes God’s beloved bride, Israel, as well as the bride of the Song of Songs who says to her groom “I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me.” The word betulah appears for the first time in the Torah and this is the only time in description of a specific woman in praise of the matriarch Rebeccah prior to her marriage to Isaac. In Kabbalah the union of Isaac and Rebecca symbolizes a spiritual service of prayer and devotion to God through gematria as Isaac (Yitzchak equals 208) plus Rebecca (Rivka equals 307) which is 515 and equal to tefilah or prayer.

In Kabbalah the mother remains forever on the spiritual plane as a virgin who is in a continual state of teshuvah and tefilah with her ever new union with father never ceasing as two companions that will never part. With the coming of Mashiach such will be the state of the lower groom and his bride. Father and mother correspond to the first two letters of Havayah via the higher union between the groom and bride as well as to the son and daughter via the second two letters of Havayah found within the lower union.

The betulah symbolizes as well virgin Earth and the land of Israel destined to be married to the people of Israel as the prophet declared “As a young man marries a virgin so will your children marry you (the land of Israel)” in Isaiah 62:5. Here we see that the children marry Mother Earth who remains virgin Earth. The Earth represents the rectification of action as described above.

The sense of action is the sense and inner knowledge or gnosis that through devoted deeds of goodness one is always able to rectify any blemished or broken state of the human Soul. This is the sense necessary for working out the spiritual service of Elul through repentance and true teshuvah to God. Here one is never to despair. Instead one is inclined to fix a broken object or save a situation rather than throw it away. This sense is also one of organization and management of complex systems.

There is a mitzvah or commandment of action with regards to the tefilin shel yad that states it is to be performed on the left hand (the right hand puts it on the left hand) or sees to its being performed on the left hand as the left hand touches the heart. This teaches us that all rectified actions derive from the good emotions and intentions of our heart.

Worship of a virgin Earth or Mother Earth dates back before the development of patriarchal societies circa 3,000 BC which coincided with shifting from Lunar to Solar worship in Neolithic Europe. Traces of matriarchal societies reach backwards into Paleolithic periods through numerous Venus figurines discovered in Europe. This system of beliefs had close connections to the afterlife as seen in red ochre funerary rights.

Archaeological evidence now shows that the Earth may have once been viewed and worshiped as a living and breathing female being. Ancient texts and mythologies support these ideas of a primary goddess who was intimately associated to the Earth, fertility, and agriculture epitomized by Cybele a Phrygian Earth mother who represented the fertile Earth and was also a Goddess of caverns, mountains, and all natural phenomena. The Greek Cybil’s would later become the female oracles inspired to divination by the Gods.

In Greek mythology we find Demeter and Persephone telling the story of a mother who discovers that her daughter has been abducted by Hades who dragged Persephone into the underworld with him. Demeter as goddess of the harvest wreaked carnage and revenge upon the Earth by refusing to provide any crops. In the Hindu context the worship of a Mother entity can be traced back to early Vedic culture. The Rigveda calls the divine female power Maimata (R.V. 1.164.33) which is a term that literally means Mother Earth. In Malta which means home of the Mother Goddess a large number of female figurines were found in prehistoric Maltese temples built in the shape of Mother Earth leading to suggestions that this was once home to a matriarchal oracle culture. In Thebes and Delphi you will see this depicted as the Omphalus stones or naval stones symbolizing the great flood by referring to their function as plugs.

Teach Me Tuesdays: North Node and South Node

Sanskrit Karman – Act, Action, and Performance

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

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

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

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

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

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

Libra North Node vs Aries South Node:

Libra to Aries Polarity is About Balancing Me and We

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

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

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

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

Virgo North Node vs Pisces South Node:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wisdom Wednesdays: Making the Unconscious Mind Conscious

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

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

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

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

Ketu in Aries vs Rahu in Libra:

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

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

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

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

Ketu in Aquarius vs Rahu in Leo:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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