sagittarius full moon 2016, again! [#StarsAndSymbols]

SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON

Numerology of the Day: 8
[6+2+0+2+0+1+6= 17 = 1+7 = 8]

eight[1].jpg

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‚Äôs more extreme archetypal circumstances, Temperance pops out of the deck as a reminder of moderation. Sometimes it‚Äôs 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‚Äôs¬†better to leave it alone altogether, whatever ‚Äúit‚ÄĚ 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 ‚Äď with some other helpful¬†ingredients, of course. Perhaps it‚Äôs 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?

Gemini NEW MOON
6/4/2016 @ 11:00 pm EST

___

Numerology of the Day:
1

[6+4+2+0+1+6 = 19, 1 + 9 = 10, 1+0 = 1]

product_67121_1_orig.jpg

Like the fateful moments before the Big Bang [theoretically] exploded in a dazzling display of unadulterated life force energy, particles of apparent nothingness are colliding violently to form the perfect storm of pure creative potential that is the number 1.

Just as phallic as its symbol suggests,  1 is the spark of potent possibility that penetrates past the formulaic fixtures of the world to stimulate the origination of new forms. Through sheer will power and singular focus, 1 is able to bring to fruition anything it so chooses, even if it is inconceivable to those who lack visionary awareness. 1 is the number that represents the pioneer or the inventor that changes the course of life with the bright idea he or she manifests.

Think of¬†1 as a magic wand, in that when it is directed with deliberate intention, life can be exactly as one wishes it to be. This is an example of the determination inherent in this number, as well as its leadership qualities. Not everyone, however, appreciates such dominant force, so it is wise to be present and personalize interactions on a case by case basis¬†when¬†wielding the commanding essence of the number¬†1.¬†Even if domination is explicitly the goal [hey… it happens], a thoughtlessly offensive presentation is a surefire way to become public enemy number one.

The lowest expression of the number 1 is probably its propensity for egotism and self-centeredness. After all, it is hard not to take things personal when one think itself the center of the universe. When negative, people resonating with this energy will stop at nothing to win, even to the detriment and alienation of others.

Although extremely individualistic,¬†1 signifies total, undivided unification. In this aspect,¬†1 reminds us of how, when concentrated and in perfect alignment, anything can happen. Pay special attention to any “firsts” that come to be, as there is something magical about doing something that has never been done before.

Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Gemini:
The Lovers

lovers.jpg

As the sixth card in the tarot’s Major Arcana, The Lovers evokes the balance needed to unify life’s opposing forces, the best example of which is the fateful union of two stars that are bound by divine celestial orchestration to cross paths. The nature of such an encounter could go either way, but whether it is the dawn of an incomparable romance or the figurative golden apple that incites the best epic, the archetypal attraction depicted in this card has the power to alter the course of history.

As profound as it can be, a love like this isn’t guaranteed to last forever, although its myth might just be legendary. This energy is subject to changes of heart, clandestine love affairs, and the scandalous revelation of a double life. Paradise is as easily indulged as it is revoked by a higher power or, perhaps worse, coveted by envious onlookers. There is no way to anticipate how it will all end, so the only option is to be mindful of all associations and to adapt to the infinite variety of variables at any given moment.

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.]

What is: the Sun?

CAM02536.jpg

The core of your personality is illuminated by the Sun sign. As the sun takes thirty days to travel through each one of the twelve zodiac signs, so each one has a month in the spotlight. Just like the sun in the solar system, everything revolves around the astrological Sun as the main source of vitality and awareness, and so it is the energy from which every creative expression emanates. It is also an emblem of the human ego. The space occupied by the Sun is where one feels most alive, important, and unique.

There are gems to be acquired if you know where to find it. The prerequisite to acquisition, however, is the ability to identify treasure when you see it. Substantial rewards, as well as all the connotations, are enjoyed by The Ones who dare to indulge in the physical realm of crystallized assets.

An unexplored paradigm of polarity is galvanized today. When you remember that no one force is naturally stronger than the other in terms of opposition, you will shift the imbalance to create a better balanced dialogue, and learn to identify the most appropriate correspondence between two distinct factors. Realize that it is possible to be DIFFERENT and at the same time stand TOGETHER, unthreatened by the existence of an alternative. Now is your chance to transcend the stress, strife, and disenchantment of duality in a celebration of polarized energy.

vesta in aries: the purest self possible [#StarsAndSymbols]

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.

Abundance is to be celebrated as a way of life, but what happens when The Others aren’t able to find a kind, encouraging word of congratulations for a success that is not necessarily their own? People have a tendency to want what they don’t have, especially when someone else seems to have it all, so it can be a challenge to express interest or enthusiasm toward the fulfillment of another. Worried that you might not receive genuine love for a big announcement, you might keep your advancement to yourself. Continue reading
