sagittarius full moon 2016, again! [#StarsAndSymbols]

SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON
6/20/2016 @ 7:02 am EST

___

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?

2016: labor of love [#StarsAndSymbols]

womb[1]

it takes¬†9 months to carry a human child. before the pregnancy reaches full term, there is a process that mother and baby must mutually undergo during which each passing interval is as conducive as it is crucial to a healthy delivery. from conception to labor, everyone has an idea of what it’s going to be, but one never truly knows until the infant comes forth in its big debut. funny how a debut can double as a grand finale. there’s a thin, thin line between the two, and it blurs. i don’t mean to trigger a contraction, but if you look down, you might be surprised to find how close you have come to that line.

as with the developmental stage of any creation, names can change from moment to moment, shifting the vibration of the still-gestating entity. even after it has been christened, the consciousness of the creator must ascend to a certain height in order to finally behold the essence of the precious life that is being fostered in the totality of its glory.

in numerology, the study of numbers as metaphysical symbols, the goal is reduce every amount to a single digit¬†through the mathematic¬†process of¬†addition. for example, the number 39 would be broken down to 3+9. Since 3+9= 12, the next task is to add 1+2, which leaves us with a single digit sum of 3. Now that we’ve arrived at a single digit number, we can start to explore the characteristics inherent in this number, as each of the¬†single digits have their own individual traits and connotations.

now, let’s practically apply this little numerology lesson, shall we? take this new year, 2016. 2+0+1+6 = ‚Ķ 9! That makes 2016 a year that vibrates in alignment with the number 9, the highest and final single digit number. what does it all mean you ask? it might be in our best interest go explore the symbolism of 9 in numerology.

number-9-on-ocean-floorsince 9 is the highest number [excluding, of course, double digits and beyond] there is a lofty quality associated with this symbol. imagine reaching the mountaintop and taking in the elevated view. even the air breathes differently up here.¬†it’s not quite heaven, but it’s feels close enough to rub off on you and change your perspective from one of rugged individuality [in the vain of the number 1] to one of universal¬†awareness.¬†9 is a heightened state of mind and the insights that one¬†brings down to earth¬†when aligned with this number are sure to be enlightening.

as 9 oversees everything from above, it relates to global affairs and matters that concern the masses. this number endows a respectable degree of leadership unto anyone who invokes it. because of this, popularity is an attribute of people [9 life paths], places [buildings with addresses that equal 9], and things [the year 2016] that resonate with this 9 energy.

as with the¬†high stakes,¬†“ready-to-pop” ninth month of¬†pregnancy, the¬†frequency of the number 9 is one of inspiring excitement. ruled by the action-packed planet mars, 9¬†is a zealous energy. when this number is in effect, the people of the world¬†are motivated by¬†the promise of big projects, especially if the endeavor is attached in some way to a humanitarian cause. speaking of attachment, the shadow side of 9 is its propensity to be aloof, ungrounded in the present reality,¬†and disconnected from one on one relationships. just like the mother who could go into labor¬†at any minute, there are simply bigger, more urgent concerns¬†with which the number 9 concerns itself. usually those concerns¬†are driven by visionary idealism and utopian desires. remember, too, that mars is known in the occult world as the warrior god, so it wouldn’t be farfetched this year to witness intensified strife on an international level. sometimes, it¬†has to¬†get worse before it gets better.

hermit

in the traditional tarot deck, the hermit [card 9]  follows strength [card 8]. after conquering our fears, weaknesses, and insecurities with strength [2015 = 8], this archetype comes to a place of inner confidence, assured spiritually by the all the tests it has passed. like the hermit card, 2016 might be the year during which you reflect on the past through a lens that has never been as wise and all-seeing as it is now. no matter how dark it was and no matter how dark it could be in the future, there is an inextinguishable fire inside of everyone that burns as a guide to illuminate the path to deliverance, stoked by the love of ancestors and dearly beloved family members who have passed in the past 9 years or so. in this immortal light, everything that was a mystery starts to make a whole lot more sense.

an assignment of sorts:

make a mental note everything of significance that you remember from 2008.¬†better, write down a physical¬†list. now take that list and¬†notice how many of the major themes of your life in the present moment¬†made themselves apparent way back then in 2008.¬†finally, if any of those ‘themes’¬†are still unsettled, make a wish for¬†and visualize your ideal resolution in 2016. think of these resolutions as mantras. how can you can claim them if you don’t name them?

if nothing from 2008 rings a bell, make a list instead of 9 unresolved issues from any period of time that you would like to finalize. wish, visualize, mantra, same as above.

635850197284573487-484381917_Setting-Goals-for-2016

2016 is the year to wrap up all loose ends to reach enlightenment. 2016 is the year to come to a conclusion, because every beginning requires an ending [which is just another beginning in disguise]. 2016 is the year to reveal the labor of love that has been growing in the faceless, yet fertile darkness, finally!

daily 4cast: 3/20/2015 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Friday
3/20/2015
Starring:
Pisces New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse [Sun in Pisces conjunct Moon in Pisces]
Co-Starring:
Moon [in Aries] trine Saturn [in Sagittarius], Juno [in Leo]
Moon [in Aries] opposite North Node [in Libra]
Featuring:
Sun enters Aries

You can read any astrologer’s webpage right now and see something big is brewing. But, you are here with me, and I thank you.

A New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse in the 29th and final degree of Pisces [aka the last degree of the ENTIRE 360 degree zodiac] kicks the morning off, followed later in the evening by the vernal equinox. The equinox is the commencement of the Spring season, which is heralded by Aries The Ram as the sun enters the first degree of the first sign, thereby reigniting the annual solar cycle. Happy New Year ūüėÄ

But back to that eclipse, because before you begin again, something must come to an end. And what more significant way to end an era than to witness a total solar eclipse in the last chronological position it could possibly be. Eclipses, BTW = big changes and sudden shifts… moving on.

CAM03537-1Since this day is obviously a big, dramatic finale leading us into some bigger, unprecedented premiere, I decided to consult my new tarot cards in a spread called “All Things Change”. There are four cards, and each one drawn represents a different aspect of the divination. I asked “What is changing with this New Moon Solar Eclipse?” Continue reading

ugly situations/beautiful solutions: aries full moon/lunar eclipse 2014 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Full Moon in Aries
October 8, 2014
06:51 AM EST

during libra season, when the sun is transiting the sign of the scales, we are fueled by collaboration. the easiest, most desirable way to shine is when working in unison with someone who is deemed equal, such as a friend, a lover, or a business associate. when the comfort-seeking moon inevitably transits libra’s opposite sign, aries, it becomes a bit of an emotional challenge to honor impulsive individuality without breaking a social rule or two, as the ego at its core is often more primitive and impatient than refined…

projection:i’m a good person who is offended that my charming grace is¬†neither appreciated nor reciprocated. i’d rather go solo than have to deal with the nastiness and strife that is incited, but i can’t just give up like that. if only i could convey to them¬†how unfairly they treat me, i know they would finally hold me in the high esteem i deserve.

swami says:

Рrelationships serve to mirror your internal state back to you objectively, but lately what you see triggers an irrationally violent response…

Рthere is a difference between a healthy partnership and codependency, and a fragile identity/ego will eventually alienate others…

Рalthough both parties are supposed to bring something to the table, some unions are more one-sided than mutual…

be a masterpiece: 5/18/14 [#MyBestWeek]

Screen shot 2014-01-13 at 3.46.03 AM

as evidenced in a variety of enduring magnum opuses, many people of many cultures and eras believe that we are all intrinsically connected. does that mean we should deny our unique experience and super special perspective? absolutely not! we must individuate ourselves (a strong “damn it” feels appropriate right here, yeah?). if we don’t leave our footprint on the surface of the earth, were we ever even alive? if the upside down sun isn’t shining, then there is nothing to see here folks! apathy, fatigue, and the depletion of life force energy in general signify either an unconscious blockage of self-expression or a wasteful expenditure of vital power that leaves us exhausted. how can we expect to create a signature by which to be remembered if we are not performing full out? life is no dress rehearsal.

some facet of our personality is being stifled whether or not we realize it. in order to continue the healthy development of the ego, we must shed light on the aspects of our being that have not yet been integrated. by acknowledging the entirety of who we are, we free ourselves to live fully in alignment with the whims of our creative will, which range from romantic to risky. whichever end of the spectrum our recreation takes us, it’s all in good fun. there is nobody else quite like us and if that doesn’t inspiration the extension of self, then leo is not the king of the jungle. even if we are not proud of everything we’ve experienced, we still have the authority to celebrate the totality of our existence for the sheer fact that there are no duplicates. way past one in a million is who we are.

if there is ever any uncertainty regarding the root of our self-consciousness and the obstruction of our eminent potential, our partnerships serve as a mirror if we choose to see ourselves in others. we attract those who are meant to refine us in some way, so sometimes it may feel as though we are in abrasive relationships. peaceful exchanges are preferred in the 7th house, but edgy interactions are indicative of the bits and pieces of our personhood that we must be conscious of in order to generate the amount of fuel necessary to sustain the animation that is playing out around us.

coins flip: full moon in gemini [#StarsAndSymbols]

As much as my mind makes itself, my body can, in one minute maneuver of my mouth, manipulate existence beyond the boundaries of my most solid expectations. An abundance of confidence in my stance still cannot constrict the curious current that stimulates the very wires that keep me alive. I am connected to every facet of my spiritual being just as the fire is connected to the smoke that fills the air.

Are you aware of what I did there?

pisces full moon: truth/illusion [#StarsAndSymbols]

A realization is merely a reflection of The Truth that lives within. It is known, and while it can be forgotten, it will always be remembered. When one falls unconscious, awareness will reveal itself in an awesome illumination.

dissolve 24

Don’t be fooled by The Illusion of distance, because every division is a connection misunderstood. What seems separate is essentially the same. A¬†line blurred by design, all difference dissolves into its thinly veiled disguise.

fun, hungover: full moon in aquarius [astroloco]

Nothing slaps you in the face quite like¬†the morning after a night of festivities. What is released with reckless abandon boomerangs back like a drunken love letter marked Return to Sender by the playful proofreader you call your best friend. The buffer of blacked out memories is massacred by the moment when subconscious is awakened with awareness of universal truth. Cosmic consciousness galvanizes all that is alive, stirring you from your sleeping state to a place of remembrance. Don’t you know what happened?

We just celebrated our 5th Annual Family Cookout (barbecue if you’re confused) on Saturday. Family and friends from near and far made their way to my house for food, fun, and unforgettable moments. It was the perfect way to end the season of Cancer: at home, surrounded by familiar faces, imbibing the brew of a reunion. It seems as though The Crab has crawled into the lion’s den for a Leo Season staycation, and we are already experiencing the first Full Moon in Aquarius¬†of the summer [there will be an Aquarius Blue Moon in August]. As the sky is illuminated with the brightness of lunar opposition, it becomes clear see exactly how much of a good time we had last weekend. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to clean up its mess, especially when the village members are equally responsible for creating it.

worth the wait: full moon in capricorn [astroloco]

A star is born, but what good is it if it dies out just as soon as it starts to burn? Sure, it may cause a stir, but it will never earn a place in the books as one of the greatest to have ever shone if it doesn’t guide your way back home on a nightly basis. Brilliance is measured by resilience, just as the light takes billions of years to penetrate the blackest spaces. The process is paced glacially, but no one said it was a race. Believe me when I tell you it is beyond well worth the wait. In fact, it is dazzling.

Patience is important when you’re young and on the rise. Capitalize on each moment in an economic way to ensure future success and secure a better day. There is no need for grand displays when you have your whole life shining ahead. Results may be so that they do not show yet, but don’t forget the sun is comprised solely of tiny little specs of electrical energy. United for a synergy, they power the world.

Cherish every flicker and foster every flare. Send sparks into the air just to catch them on the comeback once again. Snatch up particles to use them as the fuel for revolutions. Feeling useless? The solution is to keep the body moving, proving that there’s always win in every solitary spin. If they’re shady, let them doubt, because soon everyone will know. We are the supernovas. Step aside when we explode.

tumblr_motvkofQCU1rcl722o1_500

Sort of like a cosmic trophy, the Full Moon in Capricorn reveals how far we’ve come. This can be burden if we are unsure where we are and how to get there where we need to be. We are not meant to be discouraged by this illumination, no. It should motivate us to take care of business and manage what needs to be managed. A little organization goes a long way, beyond even your wildest imagination.¬†The more we realize exactly what we want in this life, the easier it is to realize the small goals that are leading us ultimately to the top of the world. Keep climbing and go far.
