Neptune Explained | Esoteric Astrology | Notes

Neptune energy is thought to be connected to our pineal gland.  The part of your body that deals with psychic nature, higher awareness, visions, divinity, and nirvana.

 

Fully understanding the pineal Gland will help you understand Neptune.

 

The Pineal gland is the gland that produces melatonin and controls our sleep patterns. So when they say Neptune is the planet of dreams then you know why. Our dreams are a person’s connection to the divine.  No dreams then no connection essentially. This disconnection is done by water supply and toothpaste which contain heavy fluoride which in turn blocks the pineal gland.

 

This makes Neptune the lord of the Third Eye. Imagination and original ideas.  Artists, musicians, and inventors with feelings of sudden inspiration. This is al Neptune and the Third Eye.  

 

If your third eye is blocked then you lack imagination and inspiration.  You dont understand abstractions so you try to fit the whole world into your personal subjective reality leaving you scratching your head more than not.  Especially wherever Neptune is in your Chart.

t

Understanding that the Third Eye or Neptune cannot be in alignment until the bottom 5 chakras are balanced its best to visit my chakra series to get attuned.  From there you can deal with your 3rd eye in truth and not in confusion. In order to receive inspiration you have to be clear to get those transmissions.

 

Neptune represents a higher octave of Venus which sits on the border of the non-physical and physical.  It represents divine love and spiritual oneness rather then a personal selfish and egoic love.

 

Dealing with Neptune with our personal problems will only lead to confusion and misunderstandings.  Neptune want to remove your borders it wants to raise you up. The problem is you want to raise everybody else up but Neptune will shut down and let you daydream.  It requires you to already have your boundaries and lower chakras in order before you can truly get any benefit out of Neptune.

 

Neptune is the God of the Sea.  The God of Water. Water is Emotions.  Emotions know no boundaries. When you are attacked Emotionally if not prepared you have no defenses.  

Neptune rules over the collective conscious where you are connected if not understood of that connection then this will lead to escaping tactics through alcohol and drugs, etc.

 

If Neptune is heavy in your Chart you will have a hard time being accepted.  Because you operate from a different paradigm.

 

Neptune is linked to spirituality,  mysticism, and divine love, letting go of selfish aims and ideals.  And caring about the collective needs.

 

Age of Pisces represented the Collective Consciousness Billions of people got together for an idea.  So Neptune represents an ideal. If calcified it represents an ideal that was given to you.

If balanced then it represents an ideal you give to yourself.  Ultimately Neptune is a weapon.

 

Siva is also seen at times standing on the being of ignorance, illusion, or maya, showing that he is not affected by its power.

 

Saturn swallowed Neptune and to bide his time Neptune dreamt and imagined a life.

Eventually Zeus freed him and he ruled the Water or Sea.  

Understanding that the earth and our bodies is 70% Water that means that most of our life and existence is unknown and subconscious.  So Neptune helps bring it all into focus. Water is symbolic to deeper emotions and dreams.

 

Neptune Symbolic Meanings

Psychology

Philosophy

Esotericism

Occult

Imagination

Mysticism

Shadow/hidden side of life

 

This is how Neptune shows up in our life.  Through the mystical and unknown regions of our existence and making sense out of it.  Neptune is a gift that has been calcified for years now the truth of the reality is being uncovered within us all.  Neptune allows us to transform our perceptions to our higher ideals. Not our personal life.

 

Symbol = Cross = Material Life = Grounding and stabilizing you life. How? through the mystical realms of Neptune, enlightenment and illumination.  

The three prongs or the Trident = His ability to control the Waters =  Liquidity, Fecundity, Drinkability

 

Sattva = intuition

Rajas = Perserverance

Tamas = Chaos

 

Neptune created the Hippocampus and is seen riding the Hippocampus.

The hippocampus is our direct memory. Not the end all be all.

Neptune is our Cosmic Memory so understanding where the real things come from is Key.

 

Siva is also seen at times standing on the being of ignorance, illusion, or maya, showing that he is not affected by its power

 

Neptune rules the Pineal Gland or Third Eye which oversees all psychic phenomenon.

Full Moon in Capricorn | June 28th, 2018 | Lazurus Rising

 

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead. The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

map

On June 28th, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 6° Capricorn, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon. This Full Moon wants to know if you care about your self or a made up concept you choose to believe. You may want to accomplish a lot but the question that may come up during this Full Moon is ‘why’. This moon is a great time to come into tune with what you truly want and gives you enough energy to get things done. Doing the inner psychological work is actually the pathway to true wealth and success regardless of how you feel, having a real goal is a solution. If you are not focused on who you are as an individual you may be concerned with your social group’s politics and get caught up in things that have nothing to do with you internally from a soul level. Understanding your personal causes is a psychological pursuit, mindlessly doing the things you have been doing without examination will come into focus during this Full Moon. When it comes to plans, we can plan a flawless wedding or a flawless crime, perception of good/bad is completely up to the individual. In a way it reminds me of the movie Purge but more of a personal allegiance type of way. Are you pledging allegiance to your group or your soul?

The Full Moon will be in Capricorn where it will need to be emotionally centered. If not centered the first sign of adversity or one simple success may trigger an overreaction and ruin overall progress. The Full Moon in Capricorn is full of false alarms and missed opportunities based on stagnancy and procrastination. This isn’t a chill out Moon, this moon means business, personally or collectively. When making a proclamation or a declaration the energy of the Moon and Capricorn will give you enough energy to bring it into manifest. Positive emotion can be used for negative things as well so make sure people aren’t plotting on you. I wouldn’t be in situations or deal with people I’m not emotionally aligned with. Avoid all pressure, follow your emotions. Realizing your obstacles is perfect for overcoming them, blind confidence can get you in trouble. Realize the problem before seeking the solution. The solution has to be found within yourself in other words. People with common goals should be your friends and family now. Ultimately following people who don’t share your goals and dreams will drain a lot of your energy during this Full Moon.

This Full Moon speaks to being swept up in a frenzy based on powerful oration of ideals. This is wonderful if you share these ideals. It’s even more wonderful if you live and speak your own personal ideals, not from the ego but from the Soul. At this point, it is okay to be the Black Sheep. The world is changing and you will not be the ‘black sheep’ for long. It is important that you understand that your energy is from the spirit/soul not from any existential force. The more you realize this the more you no longer have to prove yourself to others, you simply just need to know and love yourself.

The Tarot Card associated with this Full Moon in Capricorn is the 2 of Disks(Pentacles or Coins). Which speaks to a change in our environment and a need to be balanced during all transformations. Understand that energy cannot be eliminated it can only be transformed and reused. It’s important to understand the cyclical nature of the world and be ready for our opportunity like we are playing a game of ‘life’ double dutch. Harmonious change is what is needed. In order to give one must give a little. Its a process.

This Full Moon in Capricorn gives a chance to take control of your existence but it will not be easy. Are you ready to fight an enemy that doesn’t exist or are you ready to live your best life? This world and its energies are purely subjective, understanding what is best for you is paramount. What if your collective was actually a negative force would you still align with them based on familiarity or strike out on your own path?  Understanding that your spiritual family may not be your natural family how will you navigate these trails when identifying who you are and your personal tribe.

The Orisha of the Week

hqdefault

Babalu – Aye

There is one Orisha that is loved, respected, and feared all the same and his name is Babalu Aye. The name means “Father of the World” he is a major key to understanding humanity as a whole. Babalu Aye was once shunned by society due to illness and poverty. Understanding that his troubles and afflictions were not of the higher self, he had to switch his understanding from normal to divine consciousness to be given back his health and prosperity. Understanding that he had to balance his life and behaviors he got everything back and more. Balance and good character are what we need to be successful through discipline and understanding the divine within, nothing can hold us back.

 

img-Saint-Lazarus-the-Beggar

 

“When man fails to recognize God as the one Helper and the one support of his life, spiritual understanding becomes weak in him and he sinks into materiality. To all intents, he is dead to the truth of his own being.”

“The weak spot in human consciousness is the belief in the reality of matter and material possessions.”

 

Babalu – Aye has a counterpart in Christian mythology by the name of Lazarus. Lazarus metaphysically represents the part of our consciousness that is helped by the Divine personality but is often rejected and left by the human. We have an outer consciousness of the physical reality and we also have an inner consciousness of the divine reality. Most of us are only aware of our physical reality while our divine reality means nothing to us. Lazarus is the consciousness within us that has died, it is shown as sick and impoverished. It’s important for us to revive that part of our consciousness and divinity with our mind and our ability to focus on our inner light and radiate from this place. As long as things are going well for you, you may not realize or recognize the divine and yo may be completely concerned with the physical reality and this trapped by it. The rising of Lazurus and Bablu-Aye is the rising of the consciousness of the Soul which is taking place right now.

Pluto Explained || Esoteric Astrology

Pluto

Lecture Outline

Omnipotent, Alchemical Force.  The most intense.

Cerebrus = Nature, Cause, Accident.

 

If life is a living Hell you can call on Pluto for help.  

But Pluto is not a magic Pill.

It points out your vices, addictions, and our own undoing.  

He can show us how to transform our base ideas and perceptions to higher spiritual concepts.  

 

Who is Pluto

The God of the Underworld.

Like the Land.

A seed is Pluto and as it fights through the dirt.  

It eventually has to burst out of the ground into the heavens.   

So Pluto is pointing out the things that are holding you back that are not obvious.

Like a Flower that germinates its seed and repeats the process all over again.

It’s a Natural Process of Life and Rebirth.

LORD OF FATE, DEATH AND REBIRTH

If the Acorn is the be an Oak Tree it has to trust its innermost and dive deep in the soil to be reborn again.  It doesn’t feel that its Acorn life is supreme there must be more to the story.

Pluto is Greek for Riches. Hades god of the Underworld and profound transformation.

The Sower of the Celestial Seed.

 

Pluto in your Chart

 

Pluto in your chart shows what you need to sacrifice for your Soul Growth.

My Pluto is in Libra. 1st House. (Toxic Relationships)

So my transformation comes in the form of Relationships.

Being a Leader based on my perceptions.  

Trusting my Journey because it is leading me somewhere.

It shows how we bond with people and how we share resources, material and immaterial.  

 

1971 – 1984 Pluto was in Libra = Growing up with problems in the home.  Divorce. Single Parent Household. Where is Daddy?

 

1984 – 1995 Pluto was in Scorpio = Crack and Violence Epidemic, Aids, Teen Pregnancy

 

1995 – 2008 Puto was in Sagittarius = The Great Awakening, Alerting Souls to their path, A set up for Fate, Barack Obama

 

2008 – 2023 Pluto will be in Capricorn = Theories and ideals are brought down to earth and put into practice, and anything that doesn’t work is thrown out – no matter how noble.

 

How does Pluto Show up?

 

Power, Sex, Death and the Afterlife, Transformation + Reinvention + Regeneration, Wealth, Unconsciousness

 

Pluto – Root Chakra

 

The first Chakra is co-ruled by Pluto and Saturn (The Lord of Fate)

The Root Chakra is where you connect to the Earth. (Pluto is the God of the Underworld)

Survival, Grounding, and Connecting you (your Soul) to your Body.

The Root Chakra like the Foundation to a House is necessary for all other subsequent Chakras to operate fully.  

The Root Chakra = Home of your Spiritual Essence.  

Trust and Safety issues our resources (material and immaterial), Talents, Gifts and Abilities, and how we are handling this in our life.  

Balance to this Chakras brings alignment into your life.  

Unbalance to this Chakra causes confusion.

Root Chakra nurturing yourself, healthy boundaries, being comfortable.  

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is one of the main blocks to the Root Chakra.  

Among the diagnostic criteria for PTSD are that an individual physically feels the toll of the traumatic events.

For PTSD sufferers, the trauma intrudes on visual, auditory, and somatic reality

“Individuals with PTSD suffer inundation of images, sensations, and behavioral impulses disconnected from context, concepts and understanding.”

re-experiencing the event or having flashbacks, avoiding reminders of the trauma, chronic hyperarousal in the autonomic nervous system, or essentially being stuck in the fight or flight mode of survival, leading to a high startle response or “jumpiness.”

 

Pluto Wounding | Why?

 

Violence, Abuse, and Terror.

Something that has left behind a psychological scar.  

Damage, Demeaning Put Downs, Humiliation.  Feelings of being tormented.

Pluto makes you feel like you are nothing. Why?

Feelings of hate, revulsion, disgust, and loathing.

Pluto is the Black Sheep. Being ridiculed and made to feel small and helpless.

The feelings deeply felt. (The feelings you don’t show on the surface)

Low points. Depression. Scary situations you are not emotionally prepared for. (Parenthood, Tragedy)

Pluto is where the Volcano is in your Chart.  It can lay dormant for long periods. Then all of a sudden. Hate and Vitriol is ever present.  

Since we never dealt with it we develop destructive habits to suppress the dormant rage.

Dealing with Pluto is the feeling of spiraling downwards to the deepest of lows following a Long and Powerful journey back to the surface.

Pluto is the Polarity to Earth. Earth is the physical Body. There is no “earth” in astrology. It is only you.

So Pluto relates to the spiritual aspects of life, it can alter and challenge you, but it can never destroy you. It has to show you this in order for you to Evolve.

The Love for your Spiritual Awareness supersedes your Earthly relationship, the fact that you have to sacrifice that is painful.

Birth and Rebirth are painful processes. The pain of birth. The pain of death.

Leaving a comfortable containment for the unknown is needed for evolution.

Pluto is the tool for tapping into Spiritual Will.

 

Pluto God of Wealth, King of the Dead, wears the Helmet of Invincibility.  He is fair, doesn’t pity, impossible to stop.  

 

Pluto is influential but in order to understand its influence you have to come to a personal realization on how Pluto shows up in your life.  It is not a scapegoat.

 

In order to transform the body it must first be inserted in your mind first and Pluto is the Seed.

New Moon in Gemini | June 13th, 2018 | An Eruption of Wealth | Esoteric Astrology Forcast

astrology

New Moon in Gemini

On June 13th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Gemini at 22°. The 22nd Degree mark of Gemini speaks to understanding blocks in your personal life. These blocks may be from people or situations that are extremely close to home, now that you are seeing these blocks are you willing to make the necessary changes or simply feel down because you notice them.  There are areas in our life where we may have been ignorant and now are being highlighted to be addressed. It’s important to fight against injustices as opposed to finding comfort in an imaginary neutrality that truly does not exist. This New Moon cycle will no doubt usher in changes in the collective and the individual so it is best to understand these changes.

This New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are conjunct every 28 days or so. This New Moon happens in the third decan of the sign of Gemini. The third decan of Gemini is ruled by Uranus, so having a New Moon there it would be best to focus on the changes that need to be made in your life. This is not a time to get attached to things or to search for comforts. Ultimately there comes a time when we have to address things in our lives, a New Moon in Gemini is a perfect time for that. Stay in tune to your core and really focus on the things that you want and need to do.  There may be some obstacles or roadblocks to attaining what you desire, these are the things that will come up during this New Moon in Gemini, in order for you to change it.

Working with this New Moon provides the individual with insight into the things that one has to change to become what he truly desires. The downside to this work is that it will show you exactly what you need to change, it won’t actually do the work for you, that is the individual’s job. But understanding what is happening astrologically can explain why these things are unfolding the way that they are.

Mars in Aquarius conjunct South Node | Karmic Break

The New Moon in Gemini will feature Mars conjunct South Node in Aquarius. The South Node represents the Karmic past life or past experiences of the collective. Having Mars conjunct the South Node places action towards the shifts that need to happen to bring some clarity to our present Karma and unify our Nodes to get a clear vision of our future. Mars in Aquarius is very intense and is wanting some form of independence for the cause of truth. This is a no-compromise zone for your internal desires. It wants what it wants. This is a perfect time for innovation and overall liberation. Mars in Aquarius wants you to break from all limits from now and until November 2018 when it enters Pisces and it gets an upgrade to Spiritual Warrior. Don’t take No for an answer when it comes to your Soul’s Urge.

New Moon in Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn

 This placement speaks to understanding transformation. The transformation we speak of is also in scale depending on the individual. This could be in the form of bad habits, this could be relationships, jobs/career, or place of residence. There needs to be a change in one or more of these areas for you to grow to the level that you are destined to grow. Pluto is your hidden wealth, the god of the underworld, Hades. An inconjunction ultimately means a misunderstanding. The New Moon in Gemini as we stated earlier refers to understanding blocks in your personal life. So putting this together, we are trying to understand our personal blocks to our greater wealth. This may show up as a mini-crisis internally or as an external event. It’s important to address it as opposed to finding comfort in a false neutrality. Bruised Egos and conflict may be highlighted during this New Moon.

Understanding Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto in Capricorn represents an ascension to understanding. A symbol of Pluto in Capricorn would be a volcano. Ultimately handling the change that comes with spiritual realization. This energy thus causes revolutions and sweeping changes. Whether it was the ushering of the Holy Roman Empire in the 8th Century by Charlemagne, The spread of the Vikings in the 11th century, and the last time Pluto was in Capricorn we were ushering the Colonial era from 1762 -1778. Pluto in Capricorn represents a time of action, if you have higher ideals one cannot ignore those ideals forever if one has not lived towards those ideals than Pluto is there to redirect you back towards those initial ideals. It is time to change direction and lead yourself towards your soul. Pluto in Capricorn speaks to major adjustments or be in danger of extinction. So like a volcano that wiped out civilizations but also provided a fertile land to begin a new civilization, it’s important to realize that this is a natural part of life.

Neptune in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio

During this New Moon, we are still experiencing the effects of Neptune trine Jupiter aspect. The New Moon squares Neptune in Pisces. While Neptune in Pisces is favorable, understanding the dark side of our spiritual nature may be tough for some of us. The dualistic nature of our impulses and motives if not checked may cause us to believe things that are too good to be true. The New Moon will be inconjunct Jupiter in Scorpio, which is pushing us to understand the deeper things that really have to be transformed (Pluto rules Scorpio), for our greatest expansion. Jupiter and Neptune are trine so this is providing assistance with information to help you through this examining time. So essentially, knowledge is power when it comes to what may be happening to you internally and even externally. My advice would be to speak up and say things that you are going through because you may not know who identifies in your struggle and/or could possibly give you resources or help to get you through whatever you are experiencing.

New Moon Summary and What it Means 

Even though this is a personal time in astrology the changes you make in your personal life will have reverberating effects through the collective. The reality is that we all can make a difference. Its overall based on your mood, your modd will set the tone. It’s important if you don’t understand the power of your mood to do some research. This is a moon more tailored to personal success over relationships. With the influence of the Mars and South Node, there will be some Karmic breaks because Mars is really striving towards independence. Generally, relationships and energy during this time is fated and comes full of lessons, don’t let your heart or head get ahead of your good sense. Stay focused on the work that you need to do, I imagine a lot of things will show up in the form of void fillers, and void fillers are temporary at best, it is better to do the longterm inner work that will set you up for lifetime worth of healing.

Orisha of the Week — Aganjú

In honoring of the Orishas we want to bring up a Deity of great antiquity Aganju representing the land/earth and the Creator of civilization. The word Aganju means desert, probably speaking to the fact that this Deity is not used much anymore. He is identified as Shango’s older brother or even father. As ancient and powerful as Shango is the energy of Aganju is more ancient and more powerful. Aganjú is associated with volcanoes, the foundation of societies that are built and is the catalyst for all civilization. He is known for assisting humans in overcoming great physical and psychological barriers. Aganju is known for his legendary strength and his ability to bring about drastic change. In Cuba, he is known to have delivered many people out of bondage and is known to carry the heaviest of burdens. As the Lord of Caves, he owns all mineral wealth and can be appealed to with some. Ultimately Aganju is the bearer of burdens, the defender of the helpless, downtrodden and enslaved. Aganju is a major symbol of African resistance and can be used now if you feel persecuted against or marginalized. Aganju is depicted as a rough giant that has no rhythm when dancing, when in fact he is one of the most docile, humble and generous Orisha.

Tubal Cain

Tubal Cain has been considered among Masons as a symbol of worldly possessions. “The Mason must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.” This is basically saying that ones central thought should be on how to enlarge his reach and expand to others as opposed to simply thinking about yourself. Tubal Cain was the inventor of forging metals and making weapons and tools, this allowed humanity to expand from small tribal villages to large civilizations. Tubal which metaphysically means leading, conducting, bringing forth. Cain metaphysically means smith or expert. Together they meant worldly possessions, mineral principle, and physical power.  Tubal Cain and Aganju are essentially the same root, primal. ancient energy that is now awakening on the planet and available for anyone that chooses to access it.

Full Moon in Sagittarius | May 29th, 2018 | Apocalypse and Revelation

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

 

On May 29th, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 8° Sagittarius, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  This Full Moon will be complex, special, and transformative. This Full Moon will be highlighted by three Planetary Aspects, individually they come with a lot of power, so I can only imagine what they will manage to stir up being combined with a Full Moon.  There will be a Yod, a Grand Trine, and a Mystic Rectangle. These aspects usually come with wordy astrological terms that tend to leave the uninitiated lost in a maze of words, in this article we will explain these aspects in a way we can understand and implement in our daily lives immediately upon hearing them, and no longer be confused.

1

YOD

The first Aspect is the Yod.  The Yod will be capped off with Saturn in Capricorn quincunx the Sun in Gemini and the North Node in Pisces.  The fact that the Sun and North Node form a sextile creates the aspect of the Yod. A Yod is also known as ‘the finger of God’ based on the fact that it is always centered around themes of fate and challenges.  A Yod is a challenging aspect based on the fact that it wants to evolve you spiritually and make you more aware. So with this aspect, you will understand life at a deeper level, learn truths, and discern certain illusions.  Ultimately the things uncovered during the full moon will be beneficial for some of us instantly and for others, it will develop over time.

 

2

WATER SIGN  GRAND TRINE

The Next Aspect we need to discuss is the Water Sign Grand Trine.  Venus in Cancer will be trine Neptune in Pisces which will also be trine Jupiter in Scorpio.  This creates the synergy of Healing Vibrations at just the right time. A Water Sign Grand Trine provides emotional support and blessings for the most unfortunate of us.  Venus in Cancer is really focused at home and providing the best possible life and willing to deal with the deeper issues. Jupiter in Scorpio is ready to transform your darkest of times and provide you with some light and benefits.  Neptune in Pisces is offering Divine Love of the highest calling. All three of these energies will be pulling the strings of whatever events occur during this full moon cycle. Learning how to direct your emotions and maintain an emotional balance will lead you through a complex and confusing time.  Jupiter Trine Neptune is extremely idealistic and occult. By tapping into your spirit and letting it lead you during this time will lead to the most beneficial results.

3

 

MYSTIC RECTANGLE

The Mystic Rectangle contains 4 planets of 2 elements (Fire & Air) that form a rectangle and create 2 oppositions.  The fact that it is a rectangle is because all four planets are sextile, trine, and opposed from each other.  This energy is speaking to understanding what needs to be done, bringing the opposing energy together, and make whole again.  It is not just a naked opposition, it is protected and guided by the trine and sextiles. So ultimately if you are able to bring the Energy of Mars in Aquarius together with the North Node in Leo, as well as the Full Moon opposition of Sun and Moon, this will allow being whole in a confusing time, ultimately knowing what you want to do.  Mars in Aquarius is not comfortable being this fresh into Aquarius, what helps this energy is to know that changes are required for you to step into your North Node in Leo. The Sun in Gemini is conflicted with all of the energy surrounding it, the past and future come face to face, oppose the Moon in Sagittarius which wants to just end all forms of a purposeless life, by dealing with and accepting your purpose your actually making the opposition whole once again.  

FULL MOON CONJUNCT ANTARES  — ALDEBARAN

When a planet is conjunct a fixed star the planet takes on the energy of the Fixed Star creating more variables for how the planet’s energy will manifest in Astrology.  The Fixed Stars that will be conjunct this Full Moon are Antares and Aldebaran. These stars are known as 2 of the 4 Key Stars or Archangel Stars. Michael (Aldebaran) and Oriel (Antares).  These four Stars have been characterized as Horses, as in the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Antares is also known as the Heart of Scorpio. Based simply on that analogy Antares is at the heart of one’s personal transformation.  Sitting at 8 degrees Sagittarius it has the appeal of finding your path or purpose when being conjunct a Full Moon. It also points to showing your flaws that may be blocking you to reach your path.  Aldebaran is known as “the enlightened” which is based on pure unbiased truth. So this placement you can clearly see how some will rejoice with this fixed star energy and some will be utterly destroyed due to the fact that illusions they believed so much in are starting to now fall apart.  It’s also interesting to note that John f. Kennedy has his Sun conjunct Aldebaran, while Saddam Hussein has his Moon conjunct Antares.  This is all during a Full Moon in Sagittarius that mirrors the president Donald Trump’s Natal Chart, it makes you wonder what is truly happening during this Full Moon. Add in the “This is America video from Childish Gambino” and the “Heavenly Bodies: Met Gala” which was mainly an Anti-Trump affair one can’t help but wonder if this is all the settings for a major sacrifice. We will soon see.

apocalypse “revelation, disclosure,”

revelation “disclosure of information to man by a divine or supernatural agency,”

Orisha of the Week — Obatala  

The Orisha of the Week is oldest and wisest of them all Obatala.  It is said that Obatala created Earth and the Human body.  He represents purity and uncovering mysteries.  He also can show up as she, there are many Caminos (paths) for Obatala that show up as a woman.  Obatala can be Young or Old.  Everything about obatala is White representing the purity.  He likes order and a clean environment, he is also very patient when it comes to his children. and is known to listen to you when no other orisha won’t.  His number is 8 and his counterpart within Santeria is the Virgin of Mercy.  Since Obatala created human beings we can all call on this energy in our times of need.  Obatala is the Orisha of this Full Moon in Sagittarius, even though he comes with a sword, he will be fighting for you and your path.  

 

New Moon in Taurus| Uranus Transits Taurus | May 15th, 2018

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On May 15th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Taurus at 24°.  The 24th Degree mark of Taurus speaks to a threat to your safety and environment.  So in this article, we will discuss the things that can be done to identify and eliminate the threat.   This New Moon cycle will no doubt usher in changes in the collective and the individual so it is best to understand these changes.

Why Study Astrology?

“Many scholars know very well that astrology is a science, a very old science, and it is a science, esoterically speaking, related with the Consciousness, the way in which we relate the Consciousness with the cosmos, and how the cosmos is related with us.  The human being is the microcosmos of the macro cosmos. gnosticstudies.org 

TAURUS

Taurus-512

So it is best for us to understand the connection of the constellation Taurus and how it relates to us.  The symbol of Taurus is a bull, what is the meaning of this symbol?  We also know that the element of Taurus is earth, how does this relate to us?

The human brain is split into three parts: intellectual(air), emotional (water), and sexual (fire).  The physical body is represented as the element earth.  So from this, we can understand that Taurus rules over the physical body.  Understanding that when we put energy into the different elements within, we then activate the microcosmos of our reality.  Understanding our inner workings compels the body to act, if we are unconscious to those inner workings we may act in ways we don’t understand or even like.  So understanding Taurus is understanding the Bull and that is understanding our physical nature.  The Constellation of Taurus or the Bull is important in various ancient civilization, only a fool would see this as pure idol worship, there must be a deeper significance to the Bull.  The Bull has the same meaning in every language, he is not easily tamed, irresistible, and constantly moving forward.  This is the force of the Earth, this is the force of you.  The Bull(Taurus) represents Earth and everything in it (power).  The cow, in general, is a symbol of life, the bull representing the masculine brute force, the cow representing the milk or the feminine vital sustenance we need for sustaining life.  Taurus rules the throat or the word.  The Word represents something physical, the word identifies physical things.  Like “book” or “house”. Your mind visualizes something physical.  Everything carries a sound or a frequency, even if you can’t hear it, you can see it, and that is based on sound as well.

Language is dumbed down now but there was a time when people knew how to use their words.  That’s where the power of prayer and mantras came from, they may seem useless now, but there was a time when they produced instantaneous results.  To a degree, we still have that power and even though subtle we can still create our reality with our words.  Before anything became physical we had to speak it into existence and this speaks to Taurus energy.

New Moon in Taurus (May 15th, 2018)

new moon

The New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon form a conjunction.  They take place every 28 days.  This New Moon takes place at the 24th degree of Taurus’ Third Decan.  The third decan of Taurus is ruled by Saturn.  Which gives this new moon a serious tone in the form of knowing what’s best for you.  This New moon Activate the fixed Star Algol, known as the evilest star in the heavens.  It is malefic but everything in astrology has two sides, there is a lot to learn from this New Moon if one is open to higher spiritual concepts.  Challenges ultimately do not mean defeat, it may very well mean that there is latent energy within you that will rise to meet any challenge.

New Moons represent times we want to plant seeds, one cycle is ending, while another one is beginning.  Since the Moon and the Sun cancel each other out we are essentially working blind.  This allows you to develop a new perspective on life and create new goals for yourself.

Uranus Transits Taurus (May 15th, 2018)

Personally, when Aries has changed signs they have marked new challenges in my life I had to overcome.  In 2011, Uranus transited into Aries from Pisces.  Aries representing the Warrior energy and Uranus representing the Awakened spiritual energy,  Since 2011 I have been on a path of constantly waking up those forces.  Uranus in Aries’ goal was to awaken the individual spirit of the collective as in preparation for the Taurus transit.  It did not represent peace on earth, it represented the peace within you must have in a changing world.  

On May 15th, Uranus will make his introduction in the constellation of Aries bringing about change in how we see our world.  So the questions this transit will ask is “how are you not free financially”.  A lot of people will wake up to the realization that they are simply a wage slave and will look to other alternatives for financial gain.  Not to say that everyone will own businesses but we will find different ways to support ourselves.  You can see this is starting with the rise of Uber and Amazon.  People are beginning to find opportunities outside of the original power structure and with this transit, that trend will continue.

Uranus in Taurus Square Mars in Capricorn

Mars is at the 29th degree of Capricorn, the very last degree, squaring Uranus at the Beginning stages of Taurus.  Uranus and Mars can learn a lot from each other.  Mars finishing up his ascension through Capricorn is fully charged with who he is and what he wants to do, this energy is squaring or challenging Uranus, which is in a New Constellation ready to disrupt the status Quo.  To get on top of this energy one has to be ready for all possible scenarios.  This transit reminds me of the saying “life is 10 percent of what happens to me and 90 percent how I respond to what happens”, I am paraphrasing.  This transit will be activated by the New Moon on May 15th.

New Moon in Taurus Trine Pluto in Capricorn

This New Moon comes with a soft aspect when it is trine the planet Pluto in Capricorn.  We may not know that we are built for the physical changes in our lives emotionally.  Well, a Trine represents an innate gift and possibly something we are born with, whether we recognize that is totally up to us.  Will we face adversity with a positive mindset, or will you quit before you even try?

Taurus rules the second house of Astrology, the second house rules over possessions, but not just physical, also our traits and characteristics we value in ourselves.  Venus is the ruling planet of Taurus, Venus is the equivalent of Oshun in Yoruba, Ifa, and Santeria religions respectively.  Oshun is the Goddess of fresh water, sensuality, prosperity, love, and fertility.  Oshun is represented as a beautiful young woman.  Oshun has many different paths or names,  Oshun Ibu Kole is just one of those.  This Oshun is the one who gathers dust from sweeping that takes care of the house or the one who picks through and recovers the garbage.  She is inseparable from the vulture.  Vultures are prominent in ancient mythology based on their ability to consume death and produce life.  In Cuba, this version of Oshun is honored above all.  She is the highest of all witches and knows how to make and cast spells. She is known to roll around in mud and is known as the lowest aspect of Oshun, which could also be translated as the most relatable.  So, in other words, this Oshun goes through the darkness to get through the light, as if there is any other way to gain light.
