Card 1:
“What Is My Greatest Potential This Week?”🔼: 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?” 🔼: 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?” 🔼: 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.  🌟

CAPRICORN FULL MOON

Numerology of the Day: 8
[7+1+9+2+0+1+6= 26 = 2+6 = 8]

20150508223706-8-eight-number-counting.jpeg

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?

No matter how sturdy your situation seems, there is always some irrational factor that could send the world as you know it into a downward spiral. Nature has ways of reminding you of how everything is connected, and how being out of balance throws the whole system off, especially when you unconsciously attempt to isolate yourself as a separate entity. By setting yourself up to be untouchable behind some flimsy wall you’ve constructed, you become susceptible to every outside influence and adversely affected by each impression so that small interferences becomes unnecessarily chaotic.

When you are stirred from your sleep by a bad dream, you might worry that you’ll have another one, wondering whether or not it’s really over. How will you know when the nightmare has ended you ask? The best way to be sure is to focus less on the fear that it may recur and think of how much better you feel now that you’re awake.

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

Recently, you were hit with the realization that your life is yours to live. Although you stepped into this consciousness, you may have been slow to actually honor this impulse to be your own authority, clinging instead to the way things used to be when you answered to someone else. Now, after a transitional period of trial and error, you are fully ready to initiate a new phase of self-discovery and unveil yourself in the rawest of form.

No is a word you’re allowed to say, so say it when you need to. Yes works too when you know what you want, even if The Others don’t approve. Be your authentic, beautiful self, as original as you were meant to be. Stop apologizing for being who you are. There’s just no way to make everyone happy, so focus on satisfying yourself before it’s too late. If someone or something is slowing you down or provoking your inner warrior, address the issue head on. Move on if it’s time to go. There is too much life for you to live to get caught up.

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

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.

friday the 13th [#StarsAndSymbols]

Between BEYONCÉ, Arapahoe High, and a suddenly snowy Egypt, social media has been quite abuzz with the latest, greatest, most fatefully unexpected occurrences. While the circumstances du jour encompass the spectrum from pole to pole, there is no question that today has been quite sensational. Is it any wonder that it is Friday the 13th?

friday

Ever wonder why 13 was considered unlucky? I mean, as a society we even go as far as to skip the 13th floor in high rise buildings (even though we all know the 14th floor is obviously the 13th in a tacky mustache-disguise). Oh, and since we’re questioning shit, why is it that 13 becomes a bitch on wheels when she falls on Friday? Friday, of all fucking days, gets a bad rap when paired with the number 13. What about Tuesday? Tuesday can be a pretty shitty day, worse than Monday to me. Tuesday is like turning 20; it’s just in the way, pointless. Friday is cool like last day of school! What’s the big idea superstition? Explain yourself!

rideshare with a spider: saturn (direct) in scorpio [astroloco]

Remember how I said I was afraid of bugs? Today I came face to face with one of my biggest conceivable fears. Years ago my cousin told me about the time she was driving her car and along came a spider crawling across her windshield. She too is scared of insects, and she nearly crashed her car at the mere sight and proximity of the arachnid. I know it is irrational to react like that, but I feared this scenario because I had no clue how I would handle myself while operating a vehicle, although I was way too young to drive when I heard this story. As you all know, I am now a driving man, and earlier I found myself in a similar situation.

After running errands for my upcoming 5th annual family cookout (barbecue if you’re confused), I hopped back the whip (my mom’s Honda Pilot) and drove off. I was so ready to be back home so I could make myself a quick smoothie before I indulged in enough Skinny Pop to offend a Monsanto cornfield.

~smoothie~
(Here’s the smoothie I made yesterday. I swear it tastes better than it looks.)

They say it’s healthier to eat fruits and fibrous veggies first, for digestion and shit like that. As I pulled out of the shopping center parking lot, I caught a peripheral glimpse of tiny terror; there was a spider on my sun visor (aka my personal vanity).

Although the spider was small, my nervous system went into immediate and dangerous overdrive. Since I was literally driving, I planned to pull over as soon as I could, as I did not want this spider descending down onto my forehead or my lap or any other part of my body while I was operating the vehicle. Of course if I pulled over, I’d either have to wait for the creature to crawl out or physically remove it from the premises, neither of which I had time for (Skinny Pop, remember?). After being forced to endure this discomfort for a few seconds, I got the vibe that the spider was just as stricken. She was still and so was I. I decided to keep driving.

After being retrograde since February, Saturn has finally resumed direct motion in Scorpio. Where Saturn goes our caution follows, and when Saturn is in Scorpio, the darkest of our fears are confronted in an intensely psychological way. Saturn’s nearly 5 month-long backtrack saw us re-examining our power structures. We were forced to get real about wasting resources, using more discipline, and harnessing the mutually transformative, creative potential of synergy.
