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 ‚Äúfirsts‚ÄĚ that come to be, as there is something magical about doing something that has never been done before.

Rarely does brute force subdue the mightiest of beasts. Where physical intimidation and unsophisticated aggression fail, purity of will prevails every time. There is something undeniable about a being that aligns itself with the most noble posture, for it dares entities it encounters to aspire to a similarly regal disposition, and this tactic can be dramatically more effective than a thoughtlessly blunt attempt at a take down attack.

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.]

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‚Äôs transition into hard-bodied¬†Capricorn will give us a better view. Why is¬†Capricorn considered opposite of sensitive Cancer?

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.

full moon reflection: 2 [#StarsAndSymbol]

Many people who don’t know much about astrology, and even some of us who work with Stars & Symbols on a daily basis, tend to fear the Full Moon. The word “lunatic” comes to mind [moon = luna]. The feminine energy is feared, and since the moon is the symbolic matrix of all feminine, the Full Moon’s emphasis on our lunar luminary can elicit irrational emotionalism in this patriarchal society. As if insanity were the only option, people expect to go crazy!

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.

ARIES NEW MOON
4/7/2016 @ 7:24 AM EST

___

Numerology of the Day:
2

[4+7+2+0+1+6 = 20 = 2+0= 2]

number2

2 is a number that can go either way. It¬†is the foray into the world of options, so often times important choices must be made that alter the course of one’s life. 2 is a versatile number, so instead of making a hard decision, the¬†2 suggests¬†embracing multiple realities at once until a mutual solution presents itself. Positively, this could be called consideration. Negatively, this might be seen as deception or duplicity. Could it be both? It could! 2 is full of contradictions like that, and it doesn’t always make logical sense. This could have something to do with 2’s association with the feminine/yin energy, to which irrationality is attributed in this patriarchal society. Along the lines of the feminine force, intuition is probably strongest wherever sensitive 2 is involved.

On one hand, 2 is delicate and impressionable, often yielding to apparently stronger entities. On the other hand,¬†2 is so fluid that it is unlikely to break, even under the most oppressive¬†circumstances. This number can be quite surprising as it¬†is full of withheld information, evidenced by the bits, pieces and secrets that¬†are revealed when the moment is right. Proof that you always get more than you bargain for when working with a number like this, these carefully metered revelations are indicative of¬†a hidden reserve¬†of alluring depth that is only unveiled to the select few¬†“initiates” who pass the¬†test. ¬†It takes a lot to be¬†let inside, so to know¬†2 is not only to love¬†2, but to be loved by¬†2. Care to double the fun?

Speaking of love, the number¬†2 rules over romantic relationships and other interpersonal involvements, including conflicts. Sharing, exchanges, and all interactions are ruled by¬†2. Despite emphasis on social refinement and seamless cooperation,¬†2 can manifest as timidity, and isn’t always conducive to standing in the spotlight. Even so,¬†2 is such a charming vibration that audiences form regardless of the preference of privacy.

Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Aries:
The Emperor

delgill-tarot-deck-the-emperor

The leader, the ruler, The Emperor. This card is obviously representative of ballers, shot-callers and other authority figures. Anyone who has power enough to warrant a community of followers can be likened to The Emperor archetype. More symbolically, this card signifies the essential centrality from which any game-changing circumstance emanates, as it takes a great deal of personal singularity and unwavering focus to oversee something of such magnitude.

There are many factors that keep an empire up, running, and vital in the face of threats that could come at any time, from every direction, so it takes a skillful commander to be the core that keeps his kingdom together. Not only must he embody the beam that supports the structure of everything and everyone around him, but he must also make executive decisions that reflect the greater good of the common bond they all share, lest he find himself on the receiving end of an ugly uprising.

AshéOracle: Week of 4/3/2016 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Week of 4/3/2016

Numerology:
7

Astrology:
Venus enters Aries | [on 4/5/2016 @ 12:50 PM EST until 4/29/2016]
Venus in Aries is rough around the edges where it is “supposed” to be soft and sultry. The dainty allure that is normally attributed to Venus might take a backseat to the fast-paced pursuit of what is found appealing, but is the rush held in higher esteem than the first place prize? Hmm, probably not, because there’s no greater feeling than winning when Venus is in Aries, whether it’s a friendly competition or a heated argument. Still, there’s something so sexy about the chase.

Mercury enters Taurus | [on 4/5/2016 @ 7:09 pm EST until 6/12/2016]
What Mercury in Taurus lacks in swiftness and excitement, it makes up for in common sense. Words and thoughts have the potential to manifest physically with this placement more than any other. Because of this verbal gravity, it is best to speak deliberately, with the intention to say only what is meant. The superficial stimulation¬†of a sensationalized story is fine, but why go out of the way to say what sounds good if the statement isn’t completely organic? A phrase is always more beautiful when it is naturally inspired and spoken¬†with rhythmic intelligence. Logic is grounded in reality,¬†so¬†it is best to base decisions on the facts found in the earthly realm of tangible information. After all, isn’t everything easier [and a lot more profitable] when let the five senses are allowed lead¬†the way?

When an ordinary existence isn’t enough, some of us seek to find the heightened reality of a religious experience. Those who dive a bit deeper into the belief that there is a better way might be surprised to find that when certain elements are brought together, specific effects are elicited, and those effects could be exactly what we wished. Imagine what could happen if we devoted ourselves to studying these forces and practicing the art of arranging them in accordance with our intentions, as well as the natural reverence they so require.

It is important occasionally to shift your perspective from one of duality to one of unity. For example, instead of viewing your environment and the nouns, verbs, and adjectives¬†that comprise it as separate from you, maybe it’s possible to adopt a more holistic viewpoint.¬†When you¬†begin to perceive¬†major life¬†events as divinely orchestrated singular occurrences,¬†for which these individuals factions have been brought together¬†to fulfill a¬†larger function, then it becomes easier to see the big,¬†interconnected picture.
