1.) YOU NOW:
🔮: #13 / Death

The fear of death is at the root of most human suffering, despite the fact that everyone from the highest king to the most humble peasant is bound to die. Death, the great equalizer in its suit of armor, is unstoppable and inevitable. It is important to remember that everyone deals with the pain of grief and loss differently, and with that in mind, you may unearth a profound truth that has long been submerged under the surface.


Speaking of death/fear, I am loving Will Smith’s thrilling story about bliss being on the other side of what scares you. He says, “The point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear.”

2.) MOST HIDDEN INFLUENCE:
: King Of Swords

Swords = Air Element. Gemini  is the first air sign of the zodiac, and with the Gemini New Moon coming soon in this state of sensory overload, you are in the mood to cut out confusion (& other unwanted influences) with the biggest blade you can find. Gemini is concerned  the most relevant information, and the King of Swords is the master mentalist archetype that is commanding you to comminicate better.


3.) MOST ELEVATED ACHIEVEMENT:
: 3 of Cups

Ecstasy is an achievement. Aim high in the company of love and trust, and all spirits will be lifted.

4.) YOU in the PAST
: #12 / The Hanged Man

Now you know not to worry about time because, in the past, you have seen the success of surrendering control to a higher power . Someone powerful has prayed blessings upon your life all over, and there is a divine force that will deliver you at the perfect moment.

5.) YOU in the FUTURE:
: #9 / The Hermit

A lengthy period of exertion will soon require you to withdraw into a ritual of self-renewal in solitude. This temporary isolation will bring great awareness, and after you integrate all the impressions you have received, you will be more clear about who you are and what you’re doing.

AshéOracle: Week of 4/3/2016 [#StarsAndSymbols]

Week of 4/3/2016

Numerology:
7

Astrology:
Venus enters Aries | [on 4/5/2016 @ 12:50 PM EST until 4/29/2016]
Venus in Aries is rough around the edges where it is “supposed” to be soft and sultry. The dainty allure that is normally attributed to Venus might take a backseat to the fast-paced pursuit of what is found appealing, but is the rush held in higher esteem than the first place prize? Hmm, probably not, because there’s no greater feeling than winning when Venus is in Aries, whether it’s a friendly competition or a heated argument. Still, there’s something so sexy about the chase.

Mercury enters Taurus | [on 4/5/2016 @ 7:09 pm EST until 6/12/2016]
What Mercury in Taurus lacks in swiftness and excitement, it makes up for in common sense. Words and thoughts have the potential to manifest physically with this placement more than any other. Because of this verbal gravity, it is best to speak deliberately, with the intention to say only what is meant. The superficial stimulation of a sensationalized story is fine, but why go out of the way to say what sounds good if the statement isn’t completely organic? A phrase is always more beautiful when it is naturally inspired and spoken with rhythmic intelligence. Logic is grounded in reality, so it is best to base decisions on the facts found in the earthly realm of tangible information. After all, isn’t everything easier [and a lot more profitable] when let the five senses are allowed lead the way?

When an ordinary existence isn’t enough, some of us seek to find the heightened reality of a religious experience. Those who dive a bit deeper into the belief that there is a better way might be surprised to find that when certain elements are brought together, specific effects are elicited, and those effects could be exactly what we wished. Imagine what could happen if we devoted ourselves to studying these forces and practicing the art of arranging them in accordance with our intentions, as well as the natural reverence they so require.

2016: labor of love [#StarsAndSymbols]

womb[1]

it takes 9 months to carry a human child. before the pregnancy reaches full term, there is a process that mother and baby must mutually undergo during which each passing interval is as conducive as it is crucial to a healthy delivery. from conception to labor, everyone has an idea of what it’s going to be, but one never truly knows until the infant comes forth in its big debut. funny how a debut can double as a grand finale. there’s a thin, thin line between the two, and it blurs. i don’t mean to trigger a contraction, but if you look down, you might be surprised to find how close you have come to that line.

as with the developmental stage of any creation, names can change from moment to moment, shifting the vibration of the still-gestating entity. even after it has been christened, the consciousness of the creator must ascend to a certain height in order to finally behold the essence of the precious life that is being fostered in the totality of its glory.

in numerology, the study of numbers as metaphysical symbols, the goal is reduce every amount to a single digit through the mathematic process of addition. for example, the number 39 would be broken down to 3+9. Since 3+9= 12, the next task is to add 1+2, which leaves us with a single digit sum of 3. Now that we’ve arrived at a single digit number, we can start to explore the characteristics inherent in this number, as each of the single digits have their own individual traits and connotations.

now, let’s practically apply this little numerology lesson, shall we? take this new year, 2016. 2+0+1+6 = … 9! That makes 2016 a year that vibrates in alignment with the number 9, the highest and final single digit number. what does it all mean you ask? it might be in our best interest go explore the symbolism of 9 in numerology.

number-9-on-ocean-floorsince 9 is the highest number [excluding, of course, double digits and beyond] there is a lofty quality associated with this symbol. imagine reaching the mountaintop and taking in the elevated view. even the air breathes differently up here. it’s not quite heaven, but it’s feels close enough to rub off on you and change your perspective from one of rugged individuality [in the vain of the number 1] to one of universal awareness. 9 is a heightened state of mind and the insights that one brings down to earth when aligned with this number are sure to be enlightening.

as 9 oversees everything from above, it relates to global affairs and matters that concern the masses. this number endows a respectable degree of leadership unto anyone who invokes it. because of this, popularity is an attribute of people [9 life paths], places [buildings with addresses that equal 9], and things [the year 2016] that resonate with this 9 energy.

as with the high stakes, “ready-to-pop” ninth month of pregnancy, the frequency of the number 9 is one of inspiring excitement. ruled by the action-packed planet mars, 9 is a zealous energy. when this number is in effect, the people of the world are motivated by the promise of big projects, especially if the endeavor is attached in some way to a humanitarian cause. speaking of attachment, the shadow side of 9 is its propensity to be aloof, ungrounded in the present reality, and disconnected from one on one relationships. just like the mother who could go into labor at any minute, there are simply bigger, more urgent concerns with which the number 9 concerns itself. usually those concerns are driven by visionary idealism and utopian desires. remember, too, that mars is known in the occult world as the warrior god, so it wouldn’t be farfetched this year to witness intensified strife on an international level. sometimes, it has to get worse before it gets better.

hermit

in the traditional tarot deck, the hermit [card 9]  follows strength [card 8]. after conquering our fears, weaknesses, and insecurities with strength [2015 = 8], this archetype comes to a place of inner confidence, assured spiritually by the all the tests it has passed. like the hermit card, 2016 might be the year during which you reflect on the past through a lens that has never been as wise and all-seeing as it is now. no matter how dark it was and no matter how dark it could be in the future, there is an inextinguishable fire inside of everyone that burns as a guide to illuminate the path to deliverance, stoked by the love of ancestors and dearly beloved family members who have passed in the past 9 years or so. in this immortal light, everything that was a mystery starts to make a whole lot more sense.

an assignment of sorts:

make a mental note everything of significance that you remember from 2008. better, write down a physical list. now take that list and notice how many of the major themes of your life in the present moment made themselves apparent way back then in 2008. finally, if any of those ‘themes’ are still unsettled, make a wish for and visualize your ideal resolution in 2016. think of these resolutions as mantras. how can you can claim them if you don’t name them?

if nothing from 2008 rings a bell, make a list instead of 9 unresolved issues from any period of time that you would like to finalize. wish, visualize, mantra, same as above.

2016 is the year to wrap up all loose ends to reach enlightenment. 2016 is the year to come to a conclusion, because every beginning requires an ending [which is just another beginning in disguise]. 2016 is the year to reveal the labor of love that has been growing in the faceless, yet fertile darkness, finally!

What happens when the crystal clarity of your consciousness is clouded by a good time? You might just wake up with a hangover.

Parlay, but uphold some sort of equilibrium to temper your turn up, at least for the sake of proper social engagement. Events like this call for etiquette, after all, so watch yourself. Whatever you do, don’t do too much… Unless that’s what you want to do. Continue reading

If you are able, take time to retreat into the place you consider your personal sanctuary. Take a step away from the social scene, especially if your biggest issue as of late revolved around a relationship, which it probably has. Give yourself some space to clear your mind and find your center.

spiral-cactus

There are moments when you must sort through your interpersonal problems in the form of a dialogue, but today calls for you to pay attention to your inner monologue, so try to keep outside interferences to a minimum lest you end up confused with someone else’s influence. Spirit is speaking to you, guiding you toward your healing. Are you listening?

Enjoy your alone time for however long it lasts. Trust your impulses and don’t feel the need to be so defensive when your actions are questioned. Some points are meant to be missed in the moment. It’s really okay. Be brave enough to go within and confront the shadowy figures you see slithering inside. You are beginning the process of penetrating your own dark side, and as you start to identify and integrate your internal demons, it will be easier for you to find the meaning of your external conundrums by recognizing the pattern that precipitates the problem.

“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.”

What happens when you become one with the collective unconscious? Of course, your capacity to speak the language of #StarsAndSymbols is heightened, as you are tuned into a right-brained realm where articulation as you know it is utterly impossible. The logical conclusions and linear chronology of the ego dissolve, leaving behind only a misty apparition of what you once were, as the essence of your being surrenders itself to the endlessness of spirit.
If, on the other hand, you resist this transcendent process in favor of your own man-made ecstasy, don’t be surprised when the structures of material world to which you cling are distorted in the most grotesque image of the other world that you are trying so desperately to avoid.

You have access to the psychic storage bin that houses the both the archetypes and zeitgeist of the humanity, and although your idea of reality is being twisted, it’s only scary when you try to escape it. Suppressing your super-dimensional connection results in confusion and deceit, and the space that was once so familiar will be perverted into something so ghastly, you will be impelled to run to the nearest temple and pray for salvation.

BeyondVeilArk

If, however, you are willing to peek beyond the veil, the mysteries that eluded you will start to make more sense, even if you can’t explain it all in words. By embracing your bond with universal infinity, your awareness of your own sensitivity will increase as well as your ability to identify illusion. Continue reading

February Playlist & Black Music in Post-Millenial America [#MonthlyPlaylist]

i’ve been making monthly playlists since september 2009. it’s a form of stress relief when i’m feeling anxious. after making a few of them, i found playlisting [yes, it’s a verb] was a way to capture the zeitgeist by strategically stringing together about an hour’s worth of new-ish songs so that they make a statement, a document of the collective unconscious if you will.

Diaspora

the new playlist i just arranged is a tribute to the creative versatility and fierce spirit that lives within african diasporic peoples, as well as our ability to thrive in the midst of adversity. every song represents a specific region, a particular sound, and a unique expression of melanin-imbued brilliance. one could say the range of this mix is disparate, and on one hand that is true. on the other hand, my goal is to both celebrate and stimulate the afro-geographic conversation by connecting each sound in a way that conveys a more comprehensive experience of African descendants living in the American twenty-first century. this is my perception of what’s like to be black in the new world, illustrated sonically for your listening pleasure.
