tasty participation: 8/17/14 [#MyBestWeek]

screen-shot-2014-01-13-at-3-46-03-am

a whole bunch of us have had a hard time actually beholding the apples of our respective eyes, but this just might be the moment for us to take the first bite. in life, what is materialized is not always in alignment with what we had in mind, and that is why it would be beneficial to employ the law of attraction. some prizes are not to be pursued, but pulled in with magnetism and then devoured.

aspiring to greater associations is the difference between feast and famine. we are the company we keep, so why not link up with people who are on the same wavelength, with the intention of arriving at a similar destination? there may be an assortment of new connections that are made this week, and since it is impossible to know the blessings that these new affiliations could potentially bestow upon us, we would be wise to save room in our social networks for some fresh faces. as the saying goes, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” when we least expect it, after ages of rejection, delay, and failure, the very thing we covet could fall right into our laps. stress and anxiety of an uncertain future expires when we leverage our partnerships to the fullest capacity in the present. after all, we come into each other’s lives for a reason, usually because one has something that the other needs, so there is no shame in sharing what we got!

the ego, unstroked: aquarius full moon [#StarsAndSymbols]

an unstroked ego wreaks havoc all around town, tearing down long standing structures just to elicit a reaction, because any attention is gratifying. the rush it receives from creating oppressive spectacles is fleeting and only leaves it wanting more, as its insatiable life force is dependent upon the approval of the community and its constituents. what the ego fails to realize is that it is not entitled to the spotlight or any type of special treatment, so it may be rudely awakened as its self-interested efforts are thwarted. if the intention of the self does not beneficial the greater good or align with the divine purpose of the spirit, then it will never build. it will only destroy.

go there, but don’t stay: 8/3/14 [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

one of the most gut-wrenching feelings is to desire something or someone so fervently only to have it be snatched away in plain sight. there is little we can do to overcome that anguish, so our only choice is to live with it, to feel it completely. cry if need be. it is important for us to go there, but it would be a mistake to stay. self-destruction and downward spirals are the results of festering sentiment that has found no outlet or expression. if we have it, we have to do something with it, or else it will do something to us.

Oprah’s O: Leo Symbolism?

O_The_Oprah_Magazine_Lets_Talk_About_Hair

Leo Season may be over according to Western Astrology, but the east is still screaming “Long Live the King!” Is it any coincidence that the cover of the September issue of Oprah‘s O Magazine (released earlier in August) seems to channel The Lion, mane and all? Find out why the Queen of TV could be using the Leo imagery to boost her brand. Continue reading

Seeing Signs [#StarsAndSymbols]

“So what is the big deal about signs anyway?”

That is the question I’ve been asking lately, and I’ve received a great variety of answers. As someone who often feels intellectually outcast due to what are usually considered “alternative” points of view, I didn’t honestly expect to encounter many people who think and feel the way I do about “this kind of stuff”, outside of a metaphysical forum or some other online support group for energetically interpretive abstracts such as I. To my surprise, the replies to my question have been quite inspiring.

For the past 2 weeks, I have been hosting Stars & Symbols Spa Parties. Shining a light on occult symbolism and sharing my astrological/numerological interpretations with these ladies has been a mutually amazing learning experience. Nothing feels better than resonating with people at the core of their being, while simultaneously being privileged enough to have them share their own spiritual journeys. I even received a gift last night at the 4th and final Spa Party, which was a set of astrology themed divination cards.

The best part of this experience was the discovery that many of these ladies were already following the signs before I even met them (which shouldn’t be as shocking as it is to me, considering they all signed up in the first place…)! Their awareness of the significance of the cosmic messages they receive on a daily basis not only blew me away, but provided me with a solid foundation upon which to build during each individual consultation, as well as our group discussions.

shining a light on the shadow [#ShadySun]

The better part of the last year and a half was spent putting a lot of energy into my old YouTube Channel. Projects such as Improv ThursDaze and AstroLoco were rough around the edges, but they were learning experiences for which I am truly grateful and proud. At this point, for a multitude of reasons, it is clear that my old channel has served its purpose. It is time to expand Shady Sun by using what I have built as a foundation to continue breaking through the barriers that stand in the way of illumination.

I have recently created a BRAND NEW Shady Sun YouTube Channel. Although I was reluctant to move on from what I spent so long cultivating, I needed the inspiration of a blank slate. Shady Sun’s potential is more limitless than ever, and even though it is being revamped, the goal is still to bring awareness to the masses.

My newest project is called #StarsAndSymbols. Astrology is great, and it was obviously my focus, but I was impelled to encompass a broader spectrum of occult imagery. This will be a learning experience for everyone, as we investigate and interpret icons of all sorts, familiar and unfamiliar. In life, we must follow all the signs, because the universe is constantly trying to tell us something. Continue reading

stars & symbols spa party [#SpaDayDiaries]

I mentioned in a previous Spa Day Diary that I was asked by the owner of the spa to host our next monthly Spa Party. Just about as soon as I was hired, I began to learn everyone’s signs and share as much astrological info as they would allow, which was appreciated by many of them. Looks like astrology is paying off, literally and figuratively.

All signs are pointing to the #StarsAndSymbols Spa Party! This is the beginning of something major. It’s only up from here for Shady Sun.

the gospel [#StarsAndSymbols]

Have you ever been ordered to deliver a divine word?

Think about all the instances in which you were used as a channel for someone else to view. How the audience perceives the program is out of your hands, even when the ratings are low and the show is slandered by vehement reviews. The critics have crucified you, so no one really cares if you are canceled.

Maybe your public service was misinterpreted, but the announcement was heard loud and alarming clear, rendering your mission accomplished.
