Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence: The Hierophant

the_hierophant_by_simonamooon-d314jpk.jpg

When strife is overtakes stability, there is always that one constant that can be relied on for those who have been led astray. This could very well be a religious figure who assists in the process of spiritual alignment, but less literally, maybe it’s as simple as a prayer or a ritual that is esteemed for its ability to bring order to all the madness of the world. When times are tough, it is of the utmost importance to know where [and to whom] to turn, for time is of the essence and every man must save himself before its too late.

Before projecting a wholesome superiority onto any old tradition or contracted official, it must be verified. Even the most tried, true, and trusted institution is capable of succumbing to corruption. Is there a hidden agenda, and if so, what is it?

___

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.

What happens when the Sun in Scorpio tries to go there but the Moon in Taurus is immovably content on enjoying life right where it is?

ARIES FULL MOON

/16/2016 @ 12:23 am EST
___

Numerology of the Day: 8
[10/16/2016 = 1+0+1+6+2+0+1+6 = 17 = 1+7 = 8]

red-signs-symbol-alphabets-numbers-outlined-numbers-red-number-8-kFv5Ur-clipart.png

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 Aries:
IV | The Emperor

emperor 2.jpg

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.

The Sun in Libra, despite the harmonious beauty it exudes, is often compromised by the external forces. The Moon in Aries at the opposite end of the zodiac is instinctively self-assertive. Why is aggressive Aries considered the opposite sign amiable Libra?

When the Sun is in Libra, the focus in this existence revolves very much around the refinement of anything that is otherwise unappealing, infuriating, or rough around the edges. When the Moon moves into opposite sign Aries, however, everyone will be forced to confront the unadulterated, sometimes aggressively inconsiderate manifestations of animal energy that we’ve tried so steadfastly to beautify and pacify. There is only so many Libran niceties one can employ before the Aries beast is released, because one’s most basic, uncomplicated, straightforward nature can only be contained or made-over for so long before it fights its way through the strategically pleasing surface. What’s coming to light under this Aries Full Moon is The Self, raw and unfiltered.

For anyone who’s struggled to smooth over an interpersonal disagreement, clarity is to be expected. That doesn’t mean it will end well – in fact, it might be downright brutal. Aries is the sign that is most associated with war and combat, so don’t be surprised if the gloves come off and the little disagreement becomes an epic confrontation. Unresolved rage may rear its ugly head now. Many will make the “wrong” move, some will get hurt and hurt others. It doesn’t have to get to that point, but sometimes, it’s in everyone’s best interest to just… get to the point.  Get angry. Go OFF. Folks are easily offended when the Sun is in Libra, but the Moon in Aries doesn’t  mind facing the offensive feelings that are bound to arise, so calling out fouls that have gone unpunished might be the most appropriate release right now [beware, though, because people who are habitually offended are at risk of having their own offenses exposed during this time. Yikes.]. In a similar vein, a decisive verdict is likely to be the given to anyone who has filed a claim or grievance, although some plaintiffs will be tempted to take matters into their own hands if they feel as though justice hasn’t been served.

Conversely, any volatile arrangement that makes it through this Full Moon to a better place is to be celebrated. It’s not easy to ameliorate hatred in relationships. Any partners who are able to conquer their differences are on to something special.

Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Sagittarius:
XIV | Temperance

pyreaus_tarot_connolly_Temperance[1].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.

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!

Today might find you going out of your way for something or someone you love. As you move about with such a rush of energy, be careful not to lose your balance, and leave a mess of a trail. It’s no wonder you’re all revved up, though. You are commencing some sort of engagement that promises to take you to the next level of personal refinement, an engagement that reflects you in a more attractive light than you could have ever anticipated. It is already apparent to those who are observant, but this union will be a source of self-assured confidence for you.

Despite how pretty they are, all the best arrangements come at a cost, but you already knew that. Continue reading

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

Moon [in Libra] sextile Jupiter [in Leo]

At this very moment, there’s nothing you need more than a helping hand. It may feel like you’ve done all you can on your own, and now you could use some assistance, or a referral, or a co-sign to make it real. You swallow your pride and reach out, but your initiative may not be received. I may be downright rejected [in that fake, polite way that drives you crazy]. But why, though? You don’t believe you’re asking for too much…

After all, The Others seem to be so well off, enjoying life’s most exquisite, exclusive pleasures as you look on from the outside. Your intention was to do it yourself and be the first, the original, and everything after that was supposed to fall into place. Now you’ve realized that other people ALWAYS play a part, and you need to connect if you want to take it to the next level.

What happens, though, when you’re not included? What happens when you’re not invited to the party? What happens when you are on the guest list, but you’re not even considered important enough look at the VIP section?

You’re not asking for too much, no. All you want is access.

allaccess_title1[1]

Maybe you have access already. Maybe you are one of the cool, or THE definitive cool kid. Maybe you’re surrounded by everyone you need to be surrounded by. If that’s the case, then what purpose do you serve each other, and are you really fulfilling your full potential when you come together?  Continue reading

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 😀

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

Moon [in Libra] sextile Jupiter [in Leo], Pallas [in Sagittarius]
Moon [in Libra] square Pluto/Ceres [in Capricorn]

They say it takes two, but sometimes the second half of that equation chooses the autonomy of division over the coexistence of addition. It can be puzzling when you make yourself so easy to love, but The Others don’t seem to notice your pleasant gestures. Or maybe it’s that they just don’t care, a concept even more challenging than the first. Perhaps you’re the one who values your independence, and the people around you are pushing for more together time.

Despite today’s  interpersonal dichotomy, there is an undeniable attraction between you and The Ones who oppose your preferences. Sure, you will fight for dominance, but the sooner you realize that not everyone wants to be dominated, the sooner you will be able to create an opportunity that is mutually beneficially and pleasurable to both parties Continue reading
