Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence
: Death


Perhaps the most terrifying card in the deck, Death always elicits extreme reactions when it is pulled. For most people it calls to mind the end of life and the physical body’s inevitable decay, a rude reminder of immortality. When interpreted not-so-literally, however, Death is the truth of transformation and the never-ending cycles of evolution. Just as the snake sheds its skin and the feathers of the bird fly off into the wind, everyone must occasionally begin again. But in order for something to be reborn, it must first die. This is the end of an era.

Some say that energy never dies, though, so maybe this is more of a shift from one form to the next.


The New Moon is the monthly meeting of the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. This combination makes for a great potency that, when harnessed, encourages anything that is initiated or asked. The best time to set New Moon intentions is the following few days after the aspect is exact, once the dust has settled, but the day of is usually fine too. Warning: avoid setting intentions before the New Moon is exact and/or during the void-of-course moon. [See below for the best times to make your wish.]

This New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio


Element: Water
Modality: Fixed
Ruling Planet: Mars [Traditional]/Pluto [Modern]
Opposite Sign: Taurus
House Association: Eighth House
Day of the Week: Tuesday
Tarot Card: Death
Power, Intensity, Obsession, Paranoia, Horror, Sex, Near Death Experiences, Transformation, Secrets, Other People’s Money, Taxes, Inheritance, Debt, Joint Accounts, Bonds, Legacies

Scorpio season is characterized by intensity. Intense sensitivity, intense desires, intense bonds. Where previous sign Libra introduces us to the darkness in a balanced way, symbolized by the equal day and night of the autumn equinox, Scorpio plunges right in the deep dark. And of course it’s get darker the deeper we go. Scorpio is fascinated by extremes like this, therefore anything that is initiated right now will be a source of passion to say the least. This is best time for anyone who, after suffering dull inhibition of an overly-moderate life, is ready to wring all the juice out of this fruit we call life… and then drink it 🙂

Power is Scorpio’s buzzword, and it is up for grasp. This is the time to make choices that are self-empowering, and to study those who wield power in order to subconsciously pick up cues that could help us increase our own. With Scorpio, there are a few realms of life that have the potential to boost our vitality: sex, death, and mystery. Sexual energy enhances creativity. Notice how it feels to build it up rather than release it for recreation’s sake. Death enables rebirth and, if we make a strong enough impression, inheritance. Dig through the dirt to uncover long buried projects and resources that were previously discarded as garbage and left for dead. They are likely to be a seen a different light right now. Mystery is both alluring and enlightening, not to mention protective for those who are otherwise vulnerable. A lot may be withheld, as long as a little is showing. If wielded irresponsibly or ineffectively, these same spheres of existence may very well elicit the opposite effect. Recognize troublesome attitudes and inclinations now so that they may be overcome through amelioration.

Because of this deeply intense concentration of Scorpio energy, we have the chance right now to identify healthy ways to embrace the forbidden taboos in order to transcend fixations that are rooted in guilt, shame, fear, embarrassment, trauma, etc. By pretending that these hidden obsession do not exist, they will prove to be unnecessarily destructive at some point. It might take an artful approach, but we would all be transformed for the better by envisioning a lifestyle that allows us to explore the “unacceptable” parts of our personalities without being stigmatized. I cannot tell anyone how exactly to do this, but maybe by observing a celebrated public figure whose work is consistently controversial, you will learn how to get away with murder.. figuratively speaking.

The veil is thin right now, which means that we have access to certain energies and entities that otherwise elude our consciousness.  This is a beautiful time to pay tribute to the spirits of dead relatives, ancestors, and people we wish to emulate out of respect [see: Halloween, Dia de los Muertos]. Intuition is high and it is easier to see through appearances to penetrate the essence of what really is versus what is presented. By the same coin, the disguises people wear will be more complex in order to [whether consciously and unconsciously] mask the secrets that would otherwise be exposed. Be careful what is invoked and what is entertained right now because there is a thin between being treated and being tricked. This New Moon in Scorpio, can be used to increase our comprehension of the occult and all its mystical affairs.



As mentioned above, it is best to avoid setting intentions BEFoRE the New Moon reaches the point of its exactitude and DURiNG the void-of-course moon, as both scenarios would weaken the celestial receptivity we have been discussing. Here are periods of time I believe are best to set intentions, make a wish, or request a preference…

Best Times To Set Intentions:

– 10/30/16 anytime after 1:38 PM EST
– 10/31/16 anytime before 10:44 PM EST
– 11/1/16 anytime after 10:43 AM EST

aries full moon 2016 [#StarsAndSymbols]

/16/2016 @ 12:23 am EST

Numerology of the Day: 8
[10/16/2016 = 1+0+1+6+2+0+1+6 = 17 = 1+7 = 8]


What goes around comes around is the idea behind the number 8. Just like the symbol of infinity, this number embodies endlessness. 8 can be the gift that keeps on giving, or it can represent the shackles of bondage to an oppressive circumstance. The result of the 8 energy depends on how its power is wielded. The get back is only as strong as the put out, sort of like karma. Or exactly like karma. If every action has an equal and opposite reaction, then whoever reads this better act accordingly, or else.

Once this personal responsibility is assumed, 8 can elevate ordinary individuals to executive heights. 8 is related to the archetype of the boss, one who has self-control and well as power of the circumstances of subordinates. Ambition, business, and corporation all fall under the rule of this authoritative number. Not so positively, the number 8 may be cumbersome and sensitive to the pressures of this gravitational existence, so people who identify with this vibration must often fight through fatalism. With discipline and balance, 8 can achieve greatness.


Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Aries:
IV | The Emperor

emperor 2.jpg

The leader, the ruler, The Emperor. This card is obviously representative of ballers, shot-callers and other authority figures. Anyone who has power enough to warrant a community of followers can be likened to The Emperor archetype. More symbolically, this card signifies the essential centrality from which any game-changing circumstance emanates, as it takes a great deal of personal singularity and unwavering focus to oversee something of such magnitude.

There are many factors that keep an empire up, running, and vital in the face of threats that could come at any time, from every direction, so it takes a skillful commander to be the core that keeps his kingdom together. Not only must he embody the beam that supports the structure of everything and everyone around him, but he must also make executive decisions that reflect the greater good of the common bond they all share, lest he find himself on the receiving end of an ugly uprising.



The Full Moon is the monthly separation of the Sun [ego, identity, expression] and Moon [empathy, intuition, emotion], as they assume their most distant positions in opposite signs. This great space between our luminary bodies allows for a more comprehensive awareness of the energy that has been building, as the moon is illuminated to maximum capacity, revealing momentarily the mysteries of the creation cycle that once were [and will be again] concealed behind the nocturnal veil. Just as visibility increases to supernatural proportions, the emotional atmosphere is heightened prompting what seem to be unusual experiences and outbursts. The earthly realm becomes a mirror image of this cosmic standoff. Holistic awareness and dynamic self-expression are the blessings of the full moon, but a long overdue confrontation could be the prerequisite roadblock that makes it challenging to receive them. The goal is to recognize hidden facets of self instead of projecting dark revelations onto partners/opponents. Then and only then will personal balance be made possible, and thus all else is resolved. In the meantime, as the opposition builds, be prepared to go back and forth.

The Sun in Libra, despite the harmonious beauty it exudes, is often compromised by the external forces. The Moon in Aries at the opposite end of the zodiac is instinctively self-assertive. Why is aggressive Aries considered the opposite sign amiable Libra?

When the Sun is in Libra, the focus in this existence revolves very much around the refinement of anything that is otherwise unappealing, infuriating, or rough around the edges. When the Moon moves into opposite sign Aries, however, everyone will be forced to confront the unadulterated, sometimes aggressively inconsiderate manifestations of animal energy that we’ve tried so steadfastly to beautify and pacify. There is only so many Libran niceties one can employ before the Aries beast is released, because one’s most basic, uncomplicated, straightforward nature can only be contained or made-over for so long before it fights its way through the strategically pleasing surface. What’s coming to light under this Aries Full Moon is The Self, raw and unfiltered.

For anyone who’s struggled to smooth over an interpersonal disagreement, clarity is to be expected. That doesn’t mean it will end well – in fact, it might be downright brutal. Aries is the sign that is most associated with war and combat, so don’t be surprised if the gloves come off and the little disagreement becomes an epic confrontation. Unresolved rage may rear its ugly head now. Many will make the “wrong” move, some will get hurt and hurt others. It doesn’t have to get to that point, but sometimes, it’s in everyone’s best interest to just… get to the point.  Get angry. Go OFF. Folks are easily offended when the Sun is in Libra, but the Moon in Aries doesn’t  mind facing the offensive feelings that are bound to arise, so calling out fouls that have gone unpunished might be the most appropriate release right now [beware, though, because people who are habitually offended are at risk of having their own offenses exposed during this time. Yikes.]. In a similar vein, a decisive verdict is likely to be the given to anyone who has filed a claim or grievance, although some plaintiffs will be tempted to take matters into their own hands if they feel as though justice hasn’t been served.

Conversely, any volatile arrangement that makes it through this Full Moon to a better place is to be celebrated. It’s not easy to ameliorate hatred in relationships. Any partners who are able to conquer their differences are on to something special.
