CAPRICORN FULL MOON
7/19/2016 @ 6:57 pm EST
Numerology of the Day: 8
[7+1+9+2+0+1+6= 26 = 2+6 = 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.

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.
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?

Numerology of the Day:
[4+7+2+0+1+6 = 20 = 2+0= 2]
2 is a number that can go either way. It is the foray into the world of options, so often times important choices must be made that alter the course of one’s life. 2 is a versatile number, so instead of making a hard decision, the 2 suggests embracing multiple realities at once until a mutual solution presents itself. Positively, this could be called consideration. Negatively, this might be seen as deception or duplicity. Could it be both? It could! 2 is full of contradictions like that, and it doesn’t always make logical sense. This could have something to do with 2’s association with the feminine/yin energy, to which irrationality is attributed in this patriarchal society. Along the lines of the feminine force, intuition is probably strongest wherever sensitive 2 is involved.
On one hand, 2 is delicate and impressionable, often yielding to apparently stronger entities. On the other hand, 2 is so fluid that it is unlikely to break, even under the most oppressive circumstances. This number can be quite surprising as it is full of withheld information, evidenced by the bits, pieces and secrets that are revealed when the moment is right. Proof that you always get more than you bargain for when working with a number like this, these carefully metered revelations are indicative of a hidden reserve of alluring depth that is only unveiled to the select few “initiates” who pass the test. It takes a lot to be let inside, so to know 2 is not only to love 2, but to be loved by 2. Care to double the fun?
Speaking of love, the number 2 rules over romantic relationships and other interpersonal involvements, including conflicts. Sharing, exchanges, and all interactions are ruled by 2. Despite emphasis on social refinement and seamless cooperation, 2 can manifest as timidity, and isn’t always conducive to standing in the spotlight. Even so, 2 is such a charming vibration that audiences form regardless of the preference of privacy.
Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Aries:
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 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.]

If there’s any sort of struggle today, it’s between your goal of achieving the impossible and the limitations that have held you back for so long. Where you have obeyed boundaries before you are willing to push against them. If an objective were beyond the realm of realization, why then would God allow you imagine it so vividly?
As if it weren’t enough trying to overcome self-imposed blockages, you may be confronted by external doubt, as The Ones around you may find it more appropriate to brace you with all the reasons it won’t work than to be supportive. Let today be a lesson in encouragement: it won’t always be there for you to receive. Continue reading
A foreword of sorts: there’s not much out there on the asteroid goddesses, so I find myself beginning to focus more on them when it comes to special blog posts [aside from my daily 4cast horoscopes]. There are hundreds, possibly thousands of sites that track the transits of the main planets, so it is my personal mission [very Vesta in Aries, huh?] to fill the void, as I believe the asteroid goddesses bring a much needed fullness and femininity to astrology. For a quick, painless introduction of the 4 main asteroid goddesses, click here. With that said, let’s get into it.
Vesta enters Aries today until March 8, 2016 [note: she will retrograde on August 12 and dip back into Pisces before resuming forward motion on November 13], and so we begin the next cycle of personal purity, divine sexuality, and the renewal of our virginity thru ritual cleansing of mind, body, and soul. Remember, Vesta is the keeper of the flame, the sacred sister who keeps us centered, the one who we trust because she has her shit together and inspires everyone around her to do the same.

Good help can be hard to find, but today it’s a little easier and a lot closer. Reach out in your immediate environment because The Ones who are qualified to provide assistance are more than willing to receive you at this time. It may be more tough love than coddling, but the operative word is love, so try not to be so touchy and take what you can get. Oh, and just in case you “forgot”, call your mom to see how’s she’s doing.
You have the opportunity to make a big move or initiate a project you’ve been dreaming about. Make sure that you are clear before starting anything, as uncertainty or vagueness of any kind will have an adverse affect on your results down the line, and that would be a waste of this energy.

You feel supported in every action you undertake today. Motivated by a genuine need to express your own personal excellence, you are more inclined to exercise self-motivation. Without much effort or conscious thought, you build your day around the work that needs to be done and you do it. This is much more effective than worrying about doing it or waiting for later to do it, so good on you.
The only difficulty you may run into is realizing when you’ve done enough. If you’ve reached your limit, it is time to slow down. Once you’ve come to a complete stop, notice what comes to mind and how it makes you feel. Do your legs grow restless? Does the urge to double tap grow more irresistible? Is there something about stillness that scares you, and if so, why? Continue reading

Regardless of the wear and tear the day may bring, you find solace in your ability to restore yourself back to wholeness. When you are blessed with the awareness of virginity renewal, you don’t have to worry about being fucked over. Today revolves around self-preservation, so you may be consumed with rituals of rejuvenation and will likely express undefiled devotion to a higher cause that is conducive to your personal reintegration. Wherever you focus your energies, you must be allowed the sovereignty to work independently, so you can carry out your tasks as necessary and retain a certain amount of autonomy at the same time. This shouldn’t be a problem, as you exude an aura of integrity.

It does everything but announce itself, and it is still so incredibly apparent. An air of dubious elitism is infiltrating the atmosphere and eliciting violent reactions amongst the civilians. It seems as though the figures of authority and those of self-appointed superiority are using their status to oppress the people by obscuring the truth.
