an ode 2 joe w/ blue eyes [#ScambledArt]

you’re beautiful
i’m insatiable
i choose you to be my muse
gap in tooth, baby blue
eyes as deep as swimming pools
madonna pure
but dirty too
that’s what i will do to you
even though we haven’t touched
i’ve fallen so in love

i’m not above an impossible mission if my challenger you be
as long as there’s a chance or even the slightest possibility
that you may voyage into the vacuum tight obscurity of my black hole
we could explode uncontrollably into a big bang
as we clash, and clang, and come into each other like colliding galaxies
at a point in time when my space is not complete
in a world so petit, somehow you’re still lightyears away

the definition dictates: 7/27/14 [#MyBestWeek]

being conservative in the ways we choose to expend personal energy is the least we can do to help ourselves in the long run. it is all too easy to burn out due to the immature, unnecessary expenditure of fuel. we don’t have to pump the brakes, but we would definitely benefit from slowing down every now and then. there is nothing wrong with alternating intervals of acceleration, especially when the goal is to increase stamina and sustain our efforts over a long period of time. as inclined as we may be to charge full speed ahead, periods of rest are necessary if we want to recover from the damage of reckless urgency and make any substantial progress.

a king without crowd: leo new moon [#StarsAndSymbols]

let’s make this quick because there are other things i am “supposed” to be doing.

geocentrically speaking, when the sun and moon come together in the same sign up in that big blue sky of ours, we call it a conjunction. instead of functioning as two separate spheres of energy, they’re fused together into one singular astrological entity. this is called the new moon.

astronomically speaking, the new moon in leo is exact tomorrow, saturday july 26 @ 6:42 pm EST. of course, many of us are feeling it now. hell, some of us have felt it all week. the sun is the core essence of our being, what makes one unique and individual from other people, our personhood if you will. the moon is the intuitive response to the vibes one receives from one’s environment based on one’s sense of security and need for comfort. solar energy is externally expressed, while lunar energy is an internal process, but right now they are indistinguishable. the conscious and subconscious parts of ourselves are united at this time. with such undivided focus, we have the potential to instigate the change we need to initiate the next chapter of our unwritten autobiographies. as previously mentioned, this new moon is in leo, the sign that lives to recreate the world in its image, so the idea that we are the protagonist of some imaginary story isn’t entirely farfetched.

with the sun and moon together in leo, we have a burning desire to stand out and be praised. for the gratification of ego [sun] and the satisfaction of emotion [moon], we demand attention, which means that the element of drama is to be anticipated. leo the lion is the king of the jungle which ensures a certain level of admiration and applause (or else!). larger than life jupiter in leo turns this sun-moon conjunction into a ménage à trois, amplifying the already insatiably over-the-top new moon. jupiter, the bigger planet in our solar system, is known to expand anything it touches. let’s hope we all find our own opportunities to be in the spotlight, or else our inner lions will roar in the worst way, devastated that they were given common treatment.

it is important to note that leo is ruled by the sun, so “the world revolves around me” syndrome could be something to keep at bay. tempers will flare when we feel we are not given the VIP treatment, especially considering mars in scorpio is making a tense square [90 degree angle] aspect to the new moon. mars, the great warrior god, wants to lead its army to victory and claim the top spot as the victor, and in scorpio, this desire is passionate and obsessive, life or death. since this is a square, it may not be a little bit harder to win the war and be worshipped than we once expected.

multitask mastery: 7/20/14 [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

two hands are required to keep up a juggling act, so it is best that we pray for dexterity this week. after all, nobody wants to known as the one who dropped the ball, especially if that ball happens to be plural. that would just be a mess, wouldn’t it?

the development of expansive concentration will prove to be beneficial. when trying to cope with the madness of multiplicity, we can strengthen our attention to the small stuff by infusing it with the higher mind of awareness. that way we are able to focus on the task at hand without being blindsided by that thing that has been creeping on us from behind to topple the balance we worked so hard to strike. most of don’t have eyes in the backs of our heads, but we can still turn around every now and then to check up on all sides.

the roots & the tree: capricorn full moon [#StarsAndSymbols]

one of the great things about roots is how they provide the tree with the support necessary to uphold its composure as it climbs great heights. if there is no foundation, there is no growth. that said, the fullest way for the tree to honor its roots is to challenge itself to reach higher than it ever has. after all, isn’t that the purpose of planting seeds in the first place?

with the sun in cancer, we are focused on the acknowledgment of the deepest, most familiar facets of our personhood. to nourish and protect the life force within is the instinct that keeps each species going from generation to generation. It may not always make rational sense, but thanks to intuition and the assortment of other gifts stored away in our ancestral goodie bags, we know what we have to do at any given moment to preserve this fragile existence. to sustain our lineage is encoded in our dna.

before we get too comfortable, we must remember that no matter how well acclimatized we are, every season presents its challenges. without the occasional obstacle, the experience of life would be too subjective to sustain the dynamism of authentic expression in all its completeness. that is where the full moon in capricorn, which opposes the cancer sun, comes into play. we are feeling the subconscious call to endeavor toward the practical attainment of worldly accomplishment. our survival skills mean little if we do not at some point assume responsibility for the successful advancement of the family name beyond the home and into the stratosphere of society. the tangible achievements we need to satisfy this obscure hunger are the products of structure, goals, and concentrated motivation.

ecstatic employment: 7/6/14 [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

being a public example of the precision and efficiency of purposeful self-containment will satiate our karmic desire to progress toward the destiny of this current incarnation. there is something fulfilling about going back to basics and tending to the duties that require our devotion. conditions cannot be improved for anyone or anything unless they receive an adequate amount of tlc, and the survival of the species alone is incentive enough for us to swallow our pride and get to work. the goal is to enhance the community and society, but we must start on an individual level, with the inspiring enhancement of ourselves.
