A social contact could accelerate your process by delivering you the news you’ve been anticipating. Somehow, the message you receive is much better than you thought it would be, and suddenly you are at peace for the first time in a long while. Isn’t it wonderful how a simple sequence of words and spaces can elicit such a joyful response?

the highest order is the internal experience of the emotions. sometimes how we feel inside is more valuable a focus than what is happening outside, for how we feel is often  intuitively indicative of how conducive our environment is to our holistic health and overall wellbeing. living a shiny life with toys that shine and glimmer in the light is virtually worthless if emptiness is the truth of your inner existence, and if you don’t recognize that now, the consequences are sure to catastrophic.

when-they-say-they-need-space

A emotionally exhausting verbal disagreement, possibly the first of its kind with a certain special someone, could cause you to question whether or not it was a good idea to let your guard down and allow such intimacy to envelope your safe space of solitude. When something as simple as the wrong word hits you at your weakest moment, it can feel like you’ve been cut right across the chest, and you can almost hear the blood drip dropping onto the concrete. For a moment you’re out in the cold world alone, wondering if there is a such thing as security when you’re so deeply involved with a significant other, or if you’ll have to sacrifice love for the sake of fortifying your soft spots.

the end of the world [#ScrambledArt]

the best time to cry is
when you’re walking alone in the dark
because in the navy blue night
nobody can see you fall apart
into a thousand tiny pieces
fragments of an inarticulate plight
not to say there is no light
when the sun surrenders to the stars
but it is obviously
and fortunately not as bright

Saturn [in Sagittarius] goes Retrograde

For some reason, one that you is difficult to articulate, you are in your feelings. As logical as you try to be, you are overcome by a heavy, all-consuming mood. But why the long face?

Maybe you feel like you didn’t get the response that you wanted. It could be you got exactly what you wanted, but it was taken from you before you had the chance to enjoy it fully, which incites the rage of grief in you. Perhaps you finally drank from the cup for which you longed, but strangely enough, its contents didn’t quench your thirst. However you got to this point, you are now confronted with the empty uncertainty of disappointment.

What happens when you become one with the collective unconscious? Of course, your capacity to speak the language of #StarsAndSymbols is heightened, as you are tuned into a right-brained realm where articulation as you know it is utterly impossible. The logical conclusions and linear chronology of the ego dissolve, leaving behind only a misty apparition of what you once were, as the essence of your being surrenders itself to the endlessness of spirit.
If, on the other hand, you resist this transcendent process in favor of your own man-made ecstasy, don’t be surprised when the structures of material world to which you cling are distorted in the most grotesque image of the other world that you are trying so desperately to avoid.

You have access to the psychic storage bin that houses the both the archetypes and zeitgeist of the humanity, and although your idea of reality is being twisted, it’s only scary when you try to escape it. Suppressing your super-dimensional connection results in confusion and deceit, and the space that was once so familiar will be perverted into something so ghastly, you will be impelled to run to the nearest temple and pray for salvation.

BeyondVeilArk

If, however, you are willing to peek beyond the veil, the mysteries that eluded you will start to make more sense, even if you can’t explain it all in words. By embracing your bond with universal infinity, your awareness of your own sensitivity will increase as well as your ability to identify illusion. Continue reading

on a limb with a vulture [#ScrambledArt]

this feeling is so familiar. peeled away layers. the pang of a bared soul, vulnerable and exposed for everyone to see. i put myself out there on the limb of a tree and waited for you, but instead a vulture came to feast, leading me to believe i’m either dead or slowly dying. now i’m crying for you in a public place, tears displaced. they stain my face as i peer into the mirror behind the bar at the man who looks as though he should have it all together.

i’d like to think i knew better, but there was something special about you.

3/30/14: relinquishing resentment [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

eyes avert. conversation ceases. the air is uneasy. this is that awkward moment when we walk into a room, overcome by the feeling that someone was just talking about us. neptune is our connection to the collective unconscious, aka the stuff we all know that sometimes goes unnoticed as it exists a right below the realm of our awareness. it is up to us to tune into the spiritual world, and although the vibrations are not physically tangible, the impressions they leave are undeniable. deceitful delusions and self-defeating confusion can be avoided by purging our energy bodies of all that we have absorbed.

the atmosphere as of late may have been aggressive as indicated by aries. as the first sign of the zodiac, the ram is quick to get fired up. tempers flare and impulses are acted upon. there is not turning back once the move is made, so we must be brave enough to confront our fears head on. sometimes we charge too hard, and while it is best not to dwell, anger swells as a results of bruised egos and it becomes a challenge to let go of what hurts. when we become so distracted by the painful disillusionment of combat that we lose our sense of self, we must meditate on the meaning of forgiveness.

our relationships are affected when we don’t set aside time to get ourselves together. the 7th house represents the astrological other, and it is impossible to be a pure-hearted partner if we are too preoccupied with the bitterness of our hidden indignation. it is not fair to the people we care about to harbor hate when we relate to them. the fair thing to do would be to relinquish the resentment and reestablish harmony.

my best week: 1/26/14 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

*******

let’s get it started! mars is the first card, and rightfully so. this is the planet that takes the lead when everybody else is stuck trying to decide which way to go. “nevermind the direction,” commands mars. “this week means nothing if you don’t move!” action, impulse, and urgency are some words that describe the god of war. mars gets us revved up like a key twisted in an ignition. with so much raw, unadulterated energy, it is best that we are self-assured and assertively confident in our capability to steer this vehicle called life down a road that has yet to be paved.

the 2nd card pulled was taurus, the 2nd sign of the zodiac. taurus entices us to slow down and smell the roses. taurus picks up where [mars-ruled] aries leaves off and serves to solidify any enterprises undertaken by the ram. it’s easy to get lost in hustle and bustle, but the bull isn’t easily rushed, especially once it has settled itself. “i lay the foundation so you know it’s real,” boasts taurus in its most sultry baritone, while sipping on a glass of red wine. taurus knows its worth and is never pressed to prove anything to anyone, because excellence simply cannot be expedited.

next card drawn was the 2nd house, the house that corresponds to Taurus, so I will refrain from rehashing the previous paragraph. you may be wondering how mars will satiate its trailblazing desire nature when paired with the seemingly immovable physical weight that is taurus/2nd house, but don’t worry. when one is certain that one is going places in life, there is no need to worry about winning some imaginary race. most of us speed up when we see a yellow light, but this week fares best when we embrace the yielding power of the brakes. when we finally put foot to pedal we benefit from being specific, deliberate, and practical, so that regardless of which way we end up driving, we are well-prepared for any obstacle that obstructs our mobilization.

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.
