An unexplored paradigm of polarity is galvanized today. When you remember that no one force is naturally stronger than the other in terms of opposition, you will shift the imbalance to create a better balanced dialogue, and learn to identify the most appropriate correspondence between two distinct factors. Realize that it is possible to be DIFFERENT and at the same time stand TOGETHER, unthreatened by the existence of an alternative. Now is your chance to transcend the stress, strife, and disenchantment of duality in a celebration of polarized energy.

A sudden departure could leave you with separation anxiety, but in the back of your mind, you already know what it is. All things come and all things go, but then sometimes they come back again. Maybe today is the today when your unfinished business comes back from the abyss, but what happens if you aren’t ready? Continue reading

The security you need, want, and thought you had is called into question today. Right as you settle into a safe space, you become painfully aware of the decay of all that was once unbreakable. Just like the titanic structures that are worn down by nature’s whims, you are confronted by the insidious erosion of every warm embrace that kept you safe. Question is, how do you respond to the unpredictable promise of loss?

What you need is balance, but you’re willing to at least consider tipping the scales for the sake of a good time. Priorities are what they are, but merriment and revelry are waiting on you at the door, and nothing nourishes your soul today more than getting together with your people to celebrate. You meet your commitments and obligations, but there is something more exciting pulling at your shirt sleeve, promising you the time of your life.

Go have a crazy time with a group of the wildest people you can find. Notice how fulfilled you feel. It’s almost like you lose yourself and the worries that typically occupy your mind. It’s like the regular you dies and is reborn into group ego, where every faction operates as one unit of electric ecstasy. Continue reading

On one hand it’s easy to drift away into a comfortable daydream of warm blankets and body heat. On the other hand, the possibility of having it all snatched away is an ever present threat. There is a part of you that would love to grow attached to something or someone that feels like home, but you remember all to well how it ended last time.

 

Without realizing it, you may sabotage a good thing by unconsciously creating disruptive situations and instigating conflicts. Yes, it’s true that death is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the moment as it is. Everything – good, bad, and in between – is impermanent. The sooner you accept that, the easier life will be. Just because it satisfies you today doesn’t meant it will get you off tomorrow, but then again… why should it? 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?

sudden-death[1]

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.

Good help can be hard to find, but today it’s a little easier and a lot closer. Reach out in your immediate environment because The Ones who are qualified to provide assistance are more than willing to receive you at this time. It may be more tough love than coddling, but the operative word is love, so try not to be so touchy and take what you can get. Oh, and just in case you “forgot”, call your mom to see how’s she’s doing.

You have the opportunity to make a big move or initiate a project you’ve been dreaming about. Make sure that you are clear before starting anything, as uncertainty or vagueness of any kind will have an adverse affect on your results down the line, and that would be a waste of this energy.

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].

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.

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.
