Card 1:
“What Is My Greatest Potential This Week?”đź”®: 9 of Swords

The best way to deal with anxiety is to use it as fuel for action. Now I am able to redirect the energy of my worries into excitement that I harness to fight through fear to personal victory. 🌟

Card 2:
“What Is Being Asked Of Me This Week?” đź”®: Ace of Wands

My task is to get back in touch with my creative roots. By revisiting my artistic origins, I reinvigorate my vision and revitalize my personal power, which means that whenever I share my next opus, the impression I make on the world will be stronger and more inspired. 🌟

Card 3:
“What Mystery Is Being Revealed To Me This Week?” đź”®: 10 of Cups

To see how the imagination impacts reality can be a trip. Having a clear vision of my ideal life is an intention unto itself, and the results I manifest in this phase of my life will be enough to suspend any disbelief that might have kept me from achieving my dreams. When the image of the fantasy to which I aspire is specific, then every action I take will move me to its realization, and that is the best happy ending anyone could ever imagine.  🌟

patience

No matter how fired up and ready to go you are, you are confronted today by the reality that life is a process that cannot be rushed. Excellence takes time, just ask the seasonal fruit that is forced to wait its turn, regardless of how eager it may be to bloom into its fated beauty. Why, though, does this slow and steady development have to be such an existential crisis?

Maybe it has something to do with the way your mind wanders when you have no choice but to be still and wait. Perhaps the fact that your seed hasn’t yet blossomed reminds you of some old instance when you anticipated a yield that didn’t quite live up to your dreams, or even worse, a yield that never actually yielded anything at all. It’s almost tempting not to dream at all when you remember the embarrassment, especially when it seems like the fruits of your neighbor’s garden are the talk of the town.

If you want to see your dreams come true, you might want to learn how to get The Others just as excited as you are. Paint a pretty picture to keep your ever-expanding court united under a singular idea. After all, if you’re the only one who is privy to your vision, was there ever really a view worth mentioning?

As you campaign for your latest project, it is important to keep your own end in mind, but it is just as imperative that you adapt to each demographic accordingly in order to achieve the interpersonal effect that elicits the most impressive results. Adjust your approach when necessary.

Today you may feel the effects of reality in an altered state. Perhaps you’re still drunk from Fat Tuesday, but if not, what you’re experiencing is a oneness with spirit. You are in tune with metaphysical forces and you are ready to speak the language of the unseen. Life is all so dreamy now. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to recreate the world in the image of your most glamorous fantasy?

It doesn’t matter if it’s realistic today. There is something greater than what we are able to sense in the material realm, and if ever there were a time to cultivate your connection to the supernatural, it’s now. Continue reading

Every now and then there are lazy days. You might wish you could take it easy like a fish floating down a bubbling brook, but you quickly realize that your ideal for the day is more of a fantasy than the truth. There are creative obligations that you must tend to if you want to your artistic vision to be taken seriously, but before you start to resent your collaborators and commissioners, remind yourself that you made an agreement and must honor your word. If anything, be grateful for The Ones who hold you accountable, as they are facilitating your growth and maturity as an individual. You might find yourself out of sorts as you attempt to mute the inner voice that encourages you to chill, but you know if you let your hair down now, you might never muster the will to fulfill your commitments.

my best week: 2/2/14 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

*******

“aphrodite lady seashell bikini, garden panty… VENUS!” the sensual Goddess of Love is setting the mood. the focus is an equal balance of “me” and “you”, considering venus represents the feminine principle of accommodation. the give and the take, the attraction and the repulsion, the have and the have not; all venusian. meeting someone halfway in some sort of rendezvous is highly likely. i also pulled the 7th house, which is associated with venus, so there is no doubt that the exchange of partnership is paramount.

spiritual is pisces, the next card pulled. all things unseen, the things of our dreams and nightmares and illusions, are all piscean. the fish represent the universal oneness that connects us all like an invisible network of heartstrings. impressionable and compassionate, pisces heals other people by absorbing their negativity. selflessness, while obviously admirable, can overwhelm, and sometimes all we want to do is get away. try as we might, it is not easy to escape this sphere of existence (beware of indulgence in addictive substances!) and the burden of the outside energy we may feel obliged to assume. like a lifejacket for the sinking, it may feel like we’re struggling just below the surface, trying desperately to stay afloat.

north node/saturn/venus conjunct [#StarsAndSymbols]

A field of fragrant flowers is unforgiven by me at the offensive sight of a tiny fruit fly. A single stray note slaughters the sonic sweetness of the most sophisticated symphony. A night of noteworthy novelty means nothing if even one nuance goes neglected.

Sometimes I let the smallest things get under my skin.

Earlier in the week, I let something someone said get to me. My mom is an employee of NJ Transit, so I occasionally ride the bus to work for free, like this past Sunday. As I was catching up with the bus operator, a family friend, the topic of school came up as it usually does. When asking about my younger sister’s senior year of high school and impending undergraduate adventure, she expressed her strong suggestion for my sister to attend a state school to avoid making “the same mistake” I made. The same mistake.

One man’s mistake is another man’s destiny. The difference depends on one’s capacity to create solutions from perceived problems. It’s no secret that I’ve put myself in some situations that were more difficult than necessary, but I don’t believe them to be “mistakes”, because I am still here and I am still learning lessons. Everything happens for a reason as far as I am concerned, and as long as it is happening to me, I’m the only one who has the right to determine whether or not it is a mistake – whatever it is.

recurring dream: missing class [#freewrite]

i talked a little bit about dreams in a previous post. since then, they haven’t been as consistently memorable, but every now and then i will have one that sticks out. then there are the recurring dreams that i have. there is one i’ve been having for almost a year now.

it’s not at all a nightmare, but the dream is for some reason haunting. it always takes place at least halfway through some imaginary semester at college. somewhere in the midst of my day, i realize that there is one class that i keep missing. i don’t know what class this specifically, but i have missed it enough times to fail. although i try to act like i’m not worried, i always have the worst a pit in my stomach, ashamed that i could be so irresponsible with my education (especially one for which i am paying). there is no doubt that i am incredibly clueless in this class, but i tell myself that i’ll catch up and i’ll pass.

late-for-class

another variation of the dream involves me forgetting the lines to a play while i’m on stage. i started having this dream last fall, when i was in the rehearsal process for a show I did called RUINED. it was even worse than the classroom dream, because i literally ruined the whole production for the cast, crew, and the audience, which is a performer’s worst nightmare.

do you believe in magic? [pisces new moon]

A little after midnight, I reached 100 subscribers on my YouTube channel, SHADY SUN. It seems as though it took a while, but in the grand scheme of everything, it happened so fast. I’ve had my channel up for more than three years, but for the first couple years, I didn’t upload very much.

Last year I started uploading videos more regularly, starting with an improv series called Improv ThursDaze. Improv ThursDaze is a creative collaboration between my college friends and I. We did over a dozen improvised skits last year and we had a great time playing with each other. We haven’t done a video in a while, but I know we will soon, and they’ll be better than ever! My newest series is called AstroLoco, which I started last June after a life-changing trip to California. AstroLoco is dedicated to the astrological interpretation of the stars and their cycles. I’ve put the most time and energy into this series, and in turn I have received the most love of all my projects. AstroLoco, out of anything, got me 100 subscribers.

I’m not quite sure where these projects will take me, or what new ventures I will start, but I believe in them. I believe I do what I do for a reason and I am on the right path at the right time for me. It’s beautiful to see the seeds I planted begin to blossom, because I know this is only the glimpse of what’s to come. This process is simply magical.

Today’s New Moon in Pisces is asking you to believe. Disregard doubt and fear and all that negativity. Listen to your heart and your spirit. Honor your intuition, as you are tuned in to something so much bigger than ego. Something amazing that won’t lead you astray. It will lead you to a higher plane if only you let it. Dream big, do what you love, and share it with the world. That’s healing.

Thank you for the support.
