Motifs: Atlantic City, NJ [#SuccessfulSuggestions]

In my article “10 Ways to Win 2017“, the first suggestion I offer is to “Establish A Motif”. A motif is a recurring idea or theme that inspires and informs a creative work, a brand, etc. I think the most powerful motifs are also the most fundamental.

For example, the city you were born and/or raised is an easy motif that can provide enough specificity to fuel an entire career. After all, one is a product of one’s origin, and one’s origin will always influence the trajectory of one’s life.

Here is a personal example of how I use my hometown of Atlantic City as a motif by identifying all the fun facts that make it (as well as its inhabitants) uniquely notable. If I remember that all these bullet points live within me regardless of the distances I travel, I will have a reference point that enriches my every expression with the endearing clarity of autobiographical context.

Try to Establish A Motif today! If your motif is your hometown, what are some things you’d list that make it distinct, and what do those things say about you?

taurus new moon 2016 [#StarsAndSymbols]

TAURUS NEW MOON
5/6/2016 @ 3:29 pm EST

___

Numerology of the Day:
2

[5+6+2+0+1+6 = 20 = 2+0 = 2]

marquee number - 2.jpg

2 is a number that can go either way. It is the foray into the world of options, so often times important choices must be made that alter the course of one’s life. 2 is a versatile number, so instead of making a hard decision, the 2 suggests embracing multiple realities at once until a mutual solution presents itself. Positively, this could be called consideration. Negatively, this might be seen as deception or duplicity. Could it be both? It could! 2 is full of contradictions like that, and it doesn’t always make logical sense. This could have something to do with 2’s association with the feminine/yin energy, to which irrationality is attributed in this patriarchal society. Along the lines of the feminine force, intuition is probably strongest wherever sensitive 2 is involved.

On one hand, 2 is delicate and impressionable, often yielding to apparently stronger entities. On the other hand, 2 is so fluid that it is unlikely to break, even under the most oppressive circumstances. This number can be quite surprising as it is full of withheld information, evidenced by the bits, pieces and secrets that are revealed when the moment is right. Proof that you always get more than you bargain for when working with a number like this, these carefully metered revelations are indicative of a hidden reserve of alluring depth that is only unveiled to the select few “initiates” who pass the test.  It takes a lot to be let inside, so to know 2 is not only to love 2, but to be loved by 2. Care to double the fun?

Speaking of love, the number 2 rules over romantic relationships and other interpersonal involvements, including conflicts. Sharing, exchanges, and all interactions are ruled by 2. Despite emphasis on social refinement and seamless cooperation, 2 can manifest as timidity, and isn’t always conducive to standing in the spotlight. Even so, 2 is such a charming vibration that audiences form regardless of the preference of privacy.

Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Taurus:
The Hierophant

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?

The New Moon is the monthly meeting of the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. This combination makes for a great potency that, when harnessed, encourages anything that is initiated or asked. The best time to set New Moon intentions is the following few days after the aspect is exact, once the dust has settled, but the day of is usually fine too. Warning: avoid setting intentions before the New Moon is exact and/or during the void-of-course moon. [See below for the best times to make your wish.]

venus retrograde: bitch better have my money [#StarsAndSymbols]

when the word ‘retrograde’ comes to mind, most of us are used to hearing it associated with the planet mercury. maybe that’s why as i’ve been mentioning venus retrograde [Jul 25 – Sep 6, 2015] to people, i’ve received such a curious response. venus goes retrograde less frequently than quick-moving mercury, but it always comes right on time to help us process all of our venusian intake.

art. love. money. just some quick keywords that fall under the domain of venus, mythical goddess of all things beautiful.

Venus_John_Deare

in astrology, venus is all those seemingly unrelated keywords, except they are all super related. our appreciation for art is related to our love interest is related to our capacity to circulate money. how? value. it’s all based on what we value and what we esteem to be worth it, including our own self-esteem. in short, we attract [venus keyword] into our lives the people, places, and things that we value, and what we attract has everything to do with our self-worth or lack thereof.

kjiehTV – jupiter in the 8th house interview [#StarsAndSymbols]

So I was asked by Kjieh, a fellow astrologer, one who’s insights and work ethic I truly admire, to be featured in his “8th House interviews” series. As that would suggest, he was looking to interview individuals with major planetary placements in the 8th House. As I have Jupiter in this house of sex, death, regeneration, occult matters, inheritance/other people’s resources, and transformation [among other things], I was totally interested in sharing myself as the embodiment of the essence of this natal placement.  Continue reading

Saturn in Sagittarius: A Line Drawn in the Name of Freedom [#StarsAndSymbols]

The unresolved issue of racism that has been swept under the rug or sugar-coated has resurfaced as an international conversation of white privilege, police brutality, and cultural appropriation. From the #BlackLivesMatter to the very recent #RachelDolezal case that has taken the internet by storm, it is apparent that we are not as post-racial as we’d like to believe. Then there’s the question of LGBTQ rights with gay marriage legalization and the big reveal [“coincidentally” synchronized with the Sagittarius Full Moon] of transgender male to female Caitlyn Jenner. Feminism is also a hot topic, and again, one that proves we are not as progressive as we may have thought. These might be seen as exclusively American, and to an extent maybe so, but just at look a all the riotous uprisings around the world, all in the name of freedom.

liberty-and-justice[1]

Speaking of Sagittarius [scroll up a little bit, Forgetful Freddie], Saturn has occupied this expansive sign since December. Saturn’s energy is that of a rigid taskmaster, The One who makes us face our fears in order to strengthen the foundation on which we stand. In the sign of truth, culture, and morality, Saturn pressures the people to draw a definitive line regarding those topics – or at to least to ask the tough questions that we as a global society tend to avoid [ie, “what does it mean to be black?” “am I born this way?” “why is it taboo to breastfeed in public?”]. Saturn, a reminder that we reap what we sow, rules results, consequences, and karma.

vesta in aries: the purest self possible [#StarsAndSymbols]

A foreword of sorts: there’s not much out there on the asteroid goddesses, so I find myself beginning to focus more on them when it comes to special blog posts [aside from my daily 4cast horoscopes]. There are hundreds, possibly thousands of sites that track the transits of the main planets, so it is my personal mission [very Vesta in Aries, huh?] to fill the void, as I believe the asteroid goddesses bring a much needed fullness and femininity to astrology. For a quick, painless introduction of the 4 main asteroid goddesses, click here. With that said, let’s get into it.

Vesta enters Aries today until March 8, 2016 [note: she will retrograde on August 12 and dip back into Pisces before resuming forward motion on November 13], and so we begin the next cycle of personal purity, divine sexuality, and the renewal of our virginity thru ritual cleansing of mind, body, and soul. Remember, Vesta is the keeper of the flame, the sacred sister who keeps us centered, the one who we trust because she has her shit together and inspires everyone around her to do the same.

daily 4cast: 3/9/2015 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Monday
3/9/2015
Starring:
Venus [in Aries] sextile Vesta [in Aquarius]
Mercury [in Aquarius] sextile Pallas [in Sagittarius]
Co-Starring:
Moon [in Scorpio] square Juno [in Leo]

If your libido has been on overdrive, today you may be more inclined to channel your sexuality in non-sexual ways. The sublimation of sexual energy not only lends a certain clarity of mind, but also inspires your work, giving you the boost you need to infuse your craft with pure, unadulterated life force. If indeed you do withhold sex to enhance your creative output and connection to spirit, you may agitate someone who wants you to express your love physically with them. Conversely, you may want to be intimate with someone who seems like they are withdrawn.

It’s not a bad day to engage in love making, but it is much better if it means something more than bodies rubbing against each other. Have you ever had sex that was good you saw God? Continue reading
