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.

Every legend has a backstory, so if you intend to leave a legacy, you better make sure you have a good myth. A compelling tale is the difference between an icon and a one hit wonder. Although most biographies contain a bit of embellishment, you don’t have to stray very far from the truth to make interesting your history. Make a list of the five most exciting moments you have ever experienced, as well as the five most unpleasant moments that you’d like to forget. From there your story will formulate itself, as your passionate recollections will naturally animate your memories without having to resort to deception.
Connecting the dots of the disparate incidents from your past is not only a way to propel your brand, but also an effective method of drawing strength from your shadow by consciously integrating traumatic occurrences. Continue reading

What’s the point of trying to own anything when it will all be taken away? Maybe that’s your mood today, even if you are still holding on for dear life, which you probably are. It’s just that the tighter you hold, the harder it becomes to grasp the very object you want to possess. Obsessed? That’s an understatement. The real question is what will you do when you inevitability announces itself and forces you to relinquish your coveted keepsake?
As you flirt with the potential onslaught of death and grief, figurative or factual, you might not appear to be viscerally twisted as you feel inside. You much prefer to keep this traumatic process as private as possible. Separation is such an intimate circumstance, especially when you lose something that you allowed to become so vitally integral. Everything is happening so fast and you may not be afforded to time to process all the shock of it all.

Something from your inner being is coming into existence, but you still want to keep it close to your heart at this time. You have the rest of forever to share it with the world, but today it is a part of you, and you are whole because of it. Regardless of what you when you’re on the clock, take on the role of manager at home and make sure everything is taken care of while you still have a chance. Soon, your little creation will be thrust into the forefront of the world, so use this moment to fortify, secure, and condition in the sacred dimension of domesticity.
If in the past you have sabotaged your growth due to slapdash presentation, develop an awareness of how to communicate your intentions with a balanced combination of confidence and clarity, so that objective is more likely to be received. Before we can even expect The Others to comprehend our brilliance, we must first ascertain our aspirations. Only then can we successfully asser our endeavors Assess your artistic process through alternative eyes.
Reflect on your daily routine. Write down three activities that you enjoy everyday, especially if you enjoy them in the privacy of your own home during your free time. Take those three things, marry them under more singularly concentrated context, and generate five specialized “job titles”, like the ones people put on resumes to make themselves sound more important.

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.”
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].
i talked a little bit about dreams in a previous post. since then, they haven’t been as consistently memorable, but every now and then i will have one that sticks out. then there are the recurring dreams that i have. there is one i’ve been having for almost a year now.
it’s not at all a nightmare, but the dream is for some reason haunting. it always takes place at least halfway through some imaginary semester at college. somewhere in the midst of my day, i realize that there is one class that i keep missing. i don’t know what class this specifically, but i have missed it enough times to fail. although i try to act like i’m not worried, i always have the worst a pit in my stomach, ashamed that i could be so irresponsible with my education (especially one for which i am paying). there is no doubt that i am incredibly clueless in this class, but i tell myself that i’ll catch up and i’ll pass.
another variation of the dream involves me forgetting the lines to a play while i’m on stage. i started having this dream last fall, when i was in the rehearsal process for a show I did called RUINED. it was even worse than the classroom dream, because i literally ruined the whole production for the cast, crew, and the audience, which is a performer’s worst nightmare.
I believe that all things have meaning. Symbolism can be found anywhere if we are conscious of our surroundings. We have no excuse to be lost when there are clues in the shape of every cloud and answers in the color of each crystal.
Numbers are significant, especially when arranged in specific sequences. 11:11 is one of the most obvious and popular. I read somewhere that it represents a shift in consciousness, an awareness upgrade of sorts, but most people simply make a wish when they see it. Instead of unconscious, ritualistic wishing, we would benefit from actually looking deeper into numerology to find out what these symbols are trying to tell us.
2:22 has been a constant fixture in my life lately. I catch it mostly at night, but sometimes in the day, too. I see some other sequences [1:11, 1:23, 11:22, 11:33, 3:33], but none as frequent as 2:22. To understand this, we must take a numerological approach, which means first adding these numbers. 2+2+2 = 6. Although I am seeing a lot of 2’s, I am actually receiving a message that is based on the energy of 6, the sum total of this sequence of numbers. Speaking of 6, this year (2013) is a 6 year. Don’t believe me? Just add the digits.
6 is the number of family, balance, and responsibility. Duties of the domestic variety fall under the domain of 6, and we tend to be more concerned about community when under this influence. This number has the propensity to heal through harmonics and uplift others with good, old-fashioned TLC. Although 6 possesses unrivaled sweetness, it can also be characteristically extreme. Every time I see 2:22 [or reflect upon the energy of 2013], I am reminded that I have too much work to do to lose my focus and go off the deep end of my indulgences. I take 2:22 as a sign that I am THIS CLOSE to creeping up on a regrettable imbalance in regards to my current circumstance, and based on experience, it’s best for me to exercise temperance when I receive this message. When I don’t moderate my behavior in those moments, I ALWAYS wish I would have. Although the sum of this sequence equals 6, the 2’s lend a fair amount of intuition and sensitivity to the vibration of 2:22.
