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 Sagittarius:
XIV | Temperance

pyreaus_tarot_connolly_Temperance[1].jpg

After dealing with some of the Tarot’s more extreme archetypal circumstances, Temperance pops out of the deck as a reminder of moderation. Sometimes it’s more appropriate to lay back and be patient, even as the world seems to be spinning out of control. Do what must be done, but beware of doing too much too soon. Depending on the stakes of the situation, maybe it’s better to leave it alone altogether, whatever “it” may be.

Even in the bleakest of conditions, there is always a way to make the circumstance work, even if it takes a little magic in the form of alchemy. To be cliche, take all the lemons that life has given and make the best lemonade that lemons can make – with some other helpful ingredients, of course. Perhaps it’s best to focus less on getting rid of something [or someone] bothersome and to concentrate on transmuting trouble to triumph instead, thereby ensuring that victory will be the destination of this long journey.

Rather than acting thoughtlessly or giving into reckless reactivity, Temperance urges us to ponder the possibilities of the future, as well as how they may be affected. Play around with all available elements and realign resources to elicit exciting new effects and create unexplored contexts. The decision to bide time shouldn’t render one inactive. Anyone who equates apparent stillness to stasis is foolish, and more likely than not, that fool will be the one who ends up holding the losing hand.

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 shining on both sides of Gemini, but the Moon’s shift into Sagittarius will reveal even MORE. Why is Sagittarius considered opposite of multi-faceted Gemini?

Starring:
Sun [in Pisces] inconjunct North Node [in Libra]
Venus [in Aries] opposite North Node [in Libra]
Co-Starring:
Moon [in Cancer] inconjunct Pallas [in Sagittarius]

It may feel like your ultimate objective is foreign in that it exists outside of you. It’s out there, but it’s not at all in close proximity or easy to reach. You want it now without having to go out of your way, but as you are confronted with the reality of distance, you begin to wonder if you even want it anymore. It may seem as if you have to give up the center piece to complete your puzzle, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that doesn’t make much sense.

   Perhaps the direction toward which you are being guided isn’t in agreement with your individual value system. Maybe your idea of yourself and who you are and what you are capable of is incongruent to your aspiration. It’s like you know your calling, but you’re unsure of how exactly you are supposed to get from here to there without selling your soul or sacrificing the rhythmic style of your method.  So yes, maybe it’s not for you after all, but what if it is and you just haven’t seen it clearly yet?

Instead of allowing your worries, neuroses, and self-proclaimed shortcomings to keep you separate from your sense of destiny, take all your personal resources and core characteristics and identify ways in which you can alter their respective functions, even if these alterations challenge your notion of the world and your unique existence within it.

Sun [in Aquarius] trine North Node [in Libra]
Mercury [in Aquarius] opposite Juno [in Leo]
Mars [in Pisces] conjunct Chiron [in Pisces]
Ceres [in Capricorn] inconjunct Juno [in Leo]

Moon [in Cancer] semi-sextile Juno [in Leo]

Verbal disagreements with significant others and close confidants emerge today and require a great deal of your personal attention. You may have to adjust your schedule to pacify a needy partner, which might mean sacrificing your own to-do list in order to make it work with the other person. On the bright side, domestic disputes help you to open your mind to the other POV and teach you to accommodate the needs of the people with whom you coexist. If the differences are irreconcilable, however, you may change your mind about the commitment altogether.

Something is likely to set you off today, which makes sense as you struggle to get what you want. Even if your aggressive impulses are justified, the way you process and express your anger could possible cause you trouble. Although you try to tame your inner animal, it may feel at times like you’re being poked right in the center of an open wound, which is apt to elicit a physical reaction. It seems like they want you to blow up, but when you do, you might just burn a bridge or melt into an over-apologetic mess, embarrassed by your apparent lack of self-control.

ANGRY BIRDS Anger Management

If you are experiencing issues regarding anger management, today might be the day to initiate your own personal healing journey by examining your wound and trying to remember how it got there in the first place. Continue reading

destiny’s obscurity: moon/north node conjunct [#StarsAndSymbols]

Women have played a major role in my life. Not just one woman, but women… plural. My parents weren’t together when I was born so my mother raised me as a single parent, and for the greater duration of the first decade of my life we lived with various relatives. My most impressionable years were molded by the women who surrounded me, older women to be more specific. It was like a community of mothers, each one with something unique to offer my childhood self. There were men around, uncles and whatnot, but interactions with male figures were never as affirming for me as the matriarchal exchanges.

Naturally, my interests aligned with what most people categorize as “girl stuff” when I was growing up. I loved Destiny’s Child and Disney films like The Little Mermaid. The majority of my friends were girls, especially the ones closest to me. I was a boy, and I had guy friends, but I was never one of the boys. As I made my way through primary school, I faced my fair share of judgment from people who didn’t understand or agree with the way I expressed myself in accordance with my gender, and there were times where I judged myself for not being manly enough. At this point in my life, I still have to make a conscious effort to silence the voice of gender policeman that I allowed to invade my headspace, but everyday I learn to embrace my femininity more than before. Despite whoever has disagreed with my lifestyle, I know now that there is nothing wrong with the way I am, and I believe that my childhood conditioning was meant to prepare me for greatness. Allow me to explain myself…

There is an aspect in my natal chart that clues me into the grand scheme of who I am in regards to my resonance with the feminine influence. I have a moon/north node conjunction! The conjunction is an astrological aspect that is equivalent to a union and it occurs when two celestial bodies and/or astronomical points come together as one amplified, integrated force. In other words, two separate energies blend and work as one. So what exactly does a conjunction between the moon and the imply that could possibly explain my lifelong interest in the alluring, creative, nurturing essence of opposite sex?

******* FUN FACT: the moon and the north node are currently conjunct in libra as I type… how appropriate! *******

beyond the brink: 5/25/14 [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

A new opportunity for us to shine in the public eye has presented itself. This isn’t just any old opportunity though, this is karmic, and this is a major moment that we will look back on as a turning point or a big break in regards to career. The momentousness keeps us perpetually excited, if not a bit high-strung. The key is to make the most of this energy by visualizing the big picture and working toward its actualization. The target for which we are aiming this week will have a long-term effect, so it is important that we have a solid objective upon which to build, as well as the expansiveness to shoot for the stars.
