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 Capricorn:
XV | The Devil

Some might say that Hell is really here on Earth. In that case, it would be advisable to look at this physical dimension as The Devil’s dominion. Who better then to call upon than this guy to make the most of this material world and master the five senses? When his energy is harnessed with “upright” intentions, The Devil can be a great taskmaster who bestows lessons of discipline and concentration unto his ambitious students. This card appears to endorse the value of not only respecting, but also working optimally within a defined set of boundaries. The ones who overstep those boundaries, however, are likely to have a much different experience of this wicked archetype upon which the unconscious idea of evil is projected.

The Devil is concerned only with the “real” world. Spirituality, enlightenment, and love are not so important in this realm, and those qualities are probably lacking when this card is drawn. The Devil is a reminder that as one endeavors toward the most impressive peaks of professional success and tangible attainment, the calculation and determination that are required to dominate the earth element leave little room for the consideration of abstract sentiment. At its most decadent, The Devil is bound unapologetically to the temporarily gratifying but insidiously destructive pleasures of the flesh, ranging from a little raunchy to incredibly grotesque, possibly to the detriment of the “higher self” and the accomplishments toward which one strives. A sacrifice might be in order.

Astrology:

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 is giving us a glimpse into the mushy inner world of Cancer’s tough shell, but the Moon’s transition into hard-bodied Capricorn will give us a better view. Why is Capricorn considered opposite of sensitive Cancer?

Security is a bit of an illusion today, but the risky thrill of the ebb and flow can be ever so exciting if you choose to experience it that way. Just when you think you’ve got a good grasp on what’s going on, you are proven once again that anything could happen, and it probably will when you least expect it. I think today is less about trying to reframe the same old view after the windows have been blown out and shattered, and more about the freedom of vision that is granted when you learn you can see even better without the window, not to mention you get a refreshing breeze and an easy access emergency escape for when you feel the urge to get away. There are bound to be accidents, but they are all going to be happy, so smile 🙂

A sense of purpose is key to overcoming any confusion that today may bring. Without an objective, you could find yourself caught in the midst of a flailing mob, and someone’s bound to get hurt. An idle mind is the devil’s playground, so be careful that your boredom doesn’t land you you into a sticky situation.

Whether or not you can see it, the feeling is palpable, and it affects [and connects] everyone the world over. Continue reading

The security you need, want, and thought you had is called into question today. Right as you settle into a safe space, you become painfully aware of the decay of all that was once unbreakable. Just like the titanic structures that are worn down by nature’s whims, you are confronted by the insidious erosion of every warm embrace that kept you safe. Question is, how do you respond to the unpredictable promise of loss?

Showing off is flashy way to draw attention to oneself and one’s acquisitions, but it’s also a telltale sign that the braggart has something to prove. People have funny ways to alleviating their inadequacies. Despite intentions that have everything to do with insecurity, you may still experience discomfort when it comes to sharing with such people or anybody really, as your interactions as of late seem more competitive than compassionate.

Everything makes more sense now that you’ve arrived a place of quietude and relative stillness. Now that you’re observing the world from a slower vantage point, you’re able to notice beautiful little nuances that usually go unnoticed. The constitution of nature is comprised of some timelessly intricate patterns and they are sure to leave quite an impression on anyone who takes the time to notice and appreciate them.

Just as you are cognizant of life’s simple pleasure, you are also painfully aware of the painful complexities, such as oppression, injustice, and discrimination. It hurts your head to think that such cruelty exists, whether or not you experience it personally. Why can’t life be rainbows and butterflies?

ceres in aquarius: the madness of loss and grief [#StarsAndSymbols]

I recently posted a Facebook status on the asteroid goddess Ceres’ transit into Aquarius, as it met up in a conjunction with my Aquarius moon. Here’s an excerpt:

I have to watch for overeating and emotional eating, as the moon is always hungry for something (especially when upset) and ceres WILL feed it.

The mythology and astrology of Ceres, which sits at the apex of my chart conjunct my Midheaven, has become very important to me as I learn more about it. I am compelled to explore it more. There aren’t many articles or interpretations of any of the asteroids, so maybe I can be the change and provide some insight based on my experiences and perspective. Very Cereal/Aquarian of me, right?

So Ceres, the HBIC of Agriculture and grains [cere-al], is mad tight with her beautiful daughter Persephone, “coochie crunch” as my friend says. Persephone is literally inseparable from her mother, despite the fact that she’s hot and every guy wants a taste. Plot twist: one day Persephone gets abducted by her lusty uncle Pluto, Ceres’ brother. After Ceres “raises hell” and starves the mortal people in her grief, she negotiates a deal with her other brother Zeus [king of the Gods or whatever], where she receives temporary custody of Persephone for half the year. She is forced to share her beloved daughter with Pluto, lord of the underworld.

Ceres in astrology is the polarity of nourishment and decay. How we cope, what suffers most in our grieving process, the thing[s] that sustain us in the coldest, darkest winters… All Ceres. Just as Ceres experienced the heart-wrenching loss of her well-developed daughter, Ceres in each sign determines the degree to which separation can become an issue.

On one hand it’s easy to drift away into a comfortable daydream of warm blankets and body heat. On the other hand, the possibility of having it all snatched away is an ever present threat. There is a part of you that would love to grow attached to something or someone that feels like home, but you remember all to well how it ended last time.

 

Without realizing it, you may sabotage a good thing by unconsciously creating disruptive situations and instigating conflicts. Yes, it’s true that death is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the moment as it is. Everything – good, bad, and in between – is impermanent. The sooner you accept that, the easier life will be. Just because it satisfies you today doesn’t meant it will get you off tomorrow, but then again… why should it? Continue reading
