Numerology of the Day: 8
[5+2+1+2+0+1+6= 17 = 1+7 = 8]

 rory8[1]

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

14temperance.jpg

After dealing with some of the Tarot’s more extreme archetypal circumstances, Temperance pops out of the deck as a reminder of moderation. Sometimes it’s 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’s better to leave it alone altogether, whatever “it” 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 – with some other helpful ingredients, of course. Perhaps it’s 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?

Have you ever thought that maybe you’re impressionable beyond the point of conscious awareness? Imagine how much of your behavior is influenced by the information you’ve taken in from your environment. Everything you could ever wish to know about your shadow side can be found by examining your unconscious indulgences for subtle patterns.

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

Words don’t matter today, so you don’t have to waste time trying to fix your mouth to utter the unspeakable. It’s not what you say, it’s what you show, which will make more sense as the potential duality of verbalization and demonstration becomes clearer to you. In what ways can you use withheld information or selective silence to infuse your environment as well as creative projects with a more alluring sense of intrigue? If being appealing is at all important to you, just know that it’s attractive to wear your heart on your sleeve right now, The Ones who keep a few tricks stashed on the other side seem to be the most well-received.

Head versus heart. Just because it doesn’t make sense doesn’t mean it’s incorrect. If you can feel it, who’s to say it’s not real? Honor your hunches and gut reactions, but be careful that the subjectivity of your sentiments aren’t distorting the truth to pacify your uneasiness about a nagging worry that’s been on your mind.

Beware of holding on too tightly to your experience and disregarding other eye-witness accounts because they differ or challenge yours. Closing yourself off to other people’s interpretations of this reality can prove detrimental to your progress, as an open mind could attract a pivotal, game changing bit of information.

Slow your roll freedom fighter, there is business to be handled. No, you don’t have to abort your mission, but for the sake of your ultimate objective, it is imperative that you are conscientious of what you’re doing. Although being tied down is the last thing you want to be, you have to make sure that your responsibilities are taken care of now so that you aren’t stuck paying for your procrastination later.

As you make progress along your journey, it may be tempting to put off your duties for another day, choosing instead to chase the temporary highs of quick stimulation with reckless abandon. Forgetting that there is work to be done will lead to needless emergencies, so save yourself the trouble and balance pleasure with discipline. Yes, you are in a new place where there is new information to take in, but focusing on the priorities with which you are faced will yield more rewards than giving into scattered fits of flightiness.

It is possible today that you discover a hidden truth behind the facade of reality that is otherwise presented. Either you can take the prescription as it’s being given, or you can politely decline and do your own research. If you feel as though there is information being withheld, there probably is, and you are probably obsessed with unlocking the mysteries.

Perhaps you are struggling with the pain of being left out. You know better than anyone how badly it hurts to be treated as if you were invisible, but still you put yourself out there in the open, hoping to catch the reflection of something more significantly apparent. Maybe then you could enchant the attention of that special someone and be initiated into their most unspeakable depths. After all, there is nothing you wouldn’t do to access the innermost depths of The Ones you love, to be privy to the secret rites that exist within their shadow, to blur the lines that render you separate.

let’s trip: sagittarius full moon/friday the 13th [#StarsAndSymbols]

Friends are good for a great variety of benefits. Many of mine inspire me to be better, bolder, and to grow (it’s in my astrology). In fact, the more I am inspired, the more likely we are to experience a relationship of longevity, as opposed to the brief encounters I have notched in bedposts past. I am often inspired to travel beyond the limitations that normally keep me confined, whether these limits are mental, emotional, spiritual, or physical. As I write this I am in the process of packing (does thinking about packing count as packing?) for my second vacation this year.

I booked my ticket at the last-minute. Part of me thought it would be best not to go, considering I was just got back from New Orleans this past May. I have a full-time position at a high-end retail store in a casino. My friend invited me right when we got back home from our last trip, but “it wouldn’t be responsible for me to go.” That’s what I thought. But alas, something inside me loves to go places I’ve never been, and it’s damn near impossible to restrain. “Fuck it,” I said without opening my mouth as I clicked to confirm my flight. “If liberation is my intention, then I have to be free to roam.”

Freedom

I depart on the afternoon of Friday, the 13th of 2014, just hours after the astronomically exact the full moon in Sagittarius. A former coworker and fellow occultist informed me that this is the last Friday the 13th full moon until 2049, and in her words, “Vegas will be fuuuun that nite.” I believe her. As if full moons weren’t already notorious enough, the superstition of Friday the 13th adds an extra dose of Anything Can Happen.

As always, full moons happen once every 30 or so days [month = moon cycle] when the moon opposes the sun in the sky, each one in the same degree of opposite signs. This full moon is in Sagittarius, opposite the sun in Gemini. Oppositions are considered difficult aspects in astrology. They represent potential separation, confrontation, and challenge. Under the opposition of the full moon, it’s like we’re in an intense game of tug of war, being pulled back and forth by two equally strong competitors. In order to express ourselves as individuals [sun] we risk our emotional security [moon], as these two planets are as far away from each other as possible, while us earthlings are in the middle, trying our best to not to go insane [lunatic = luna = moon].
