Solar Eclipse in Leo August 11th, 2018 | The Case for Freedom

vvdownload

 

On August 11th, 2018 you will be experiencing a Partial Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 18 degrees Leo. This celestial event takes place in the second decan of Leo and involves the ‘learning triangle’ aspect that really wants you to learn yourself on a deep level.   A learning triangle involves three planets that form a triangle consisting of a square, inconjunction, and a trine. Ultimately this represents a challenge, a misunderstanding, as well as a solution to whatever you may be addressing this New Moon cycle.  The planets and aspects involved are as follows: New Moon inconjunct Neptune in Pisces, Neptune in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio, and Jupiter in Scorpio square the New Moon. Below I will elaborate on what these transits mean, how they will manifest, and also some solutions.

New Moon inconjunct Neptune in Pisces, Neptune in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio, and Jupiter in Scorpio square the New Moon.

 

New Moon at 18 degrees Leo | 2nd Decan

The 2nd Decan of Leo is ruled by Jupiter/Sagittarius. This placement and energy speaks to self empowerment, the more self empowered one is the better the outcome of any situation will be. This also speaks to a severe struggle based on doing things that don’t speak to self empowerment. So if you find yourself struggling during this time, most likely the problem is internal. It’s important to align with the things that are truly best for you. It is possible that struggle, pain, and inner turmoil is a choice during this time. So, in other words you are simply choosing to struggle. A solution to this energy if its bothering you is knowledge, applicable knowledge is power.  Also, any feelings of jealousy and envy need to be reconciled within, the easiest way is to focus on your inner power/God.

New Moon inconjunct Neptune in Pisces

This subsequent New Moon energy will be inconjunct Neptune in Pisces so understanding or reconciling your spiritual clarity is the key concept here. How to do this is found in detoxifying the pineal gland and balancing the third eye chakra. If this energy is calcified or blocked then it shows up as confusion and misunderstandings when it comes to self responsibility. In other words, without direction you don’t know where you are going. You may be taking cues from people who do not know where they are going as well, leading you to more destruction and turmoil. I call it the Crash Dummy theory.  Your Pineal Gland is also known as the Seat of the Soul, so understanding the Soul’s direction is important to rectify and understand any misunderstandings. Neptune in Pisces wants you to face any spiritual limitations and fears, if you are well pass this point in self-development then the goal is to help others realize their spiritual transformation. The solution here is to address any disruptions to peace of mind and clarity.

Neptune in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio

So reconciling the previous misunderstanding with Neptune in Pisces this leads into a perfected trine with Jupiter in Scorpio. You are still clearing the way of all trauma and situations that block Jupiter’s light. You can do this by fully realizing your real issues through self reflection on why things truly bother you and what are you going to do about it. Its important to be present when energies rise that make you feel uncomfortable, examine them, and make the necessary changes to feel balanced. This is  where you can create new and powerful memories for yourself. If you are clear, these memories will be positive and transformative. If you are blocked or full of old emotions, these memories will be negative and depressing. This brings you back to your original challenge within the placement of the New Moon.

Jupiter in Scorpio square the New Moon.

So what you can learn from this ‘Learning Triangle’ is that through clearing and healing you can address any blocks to creating new positive memories. You can do this easily because you are clear on the past and it does not trigger you into uncontrollable emotions. Addressing any triggers to negativity is important. Addressing any negative habits or cycles is important as well, for the purpose of going into this Solar Eclipse with clear and powerful intentions to sow.


Other Aspects during the New Moon

New Moon inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn

This aspect is really about balancing your self empowerment based on ultimate transformation towards your ultimate good. This is about full alignment and realizing your limitations so you can address your infinite spirit. There are things you can’t take care of, taking care of yourself should not be one of them. Make a list of things you can do and make sure you put yourself first, if you can’t get to it then let it go. You are the most important thing to a plan going right.  To fully understand spiritual transformation and the power of intuition will support you during this cycle.

Venus in Libra Opposite Chiron

This could be a time where past loves show up physically or the emotional pain that reminds you of them is felt. This is not a passive thing, take some initiative to heal this part of you if it still hurts. If that part is healed this is a wonderful time to rekindle past loves or simply move on from past trauma with good friends, and build that relationship again. Ultimately what needs to take place is a genuine and sincere effort to heal the past, don’t let petty things that bother you linger. This a major part of the reconciliation or clearing that needs to take place to fully realize this Solar Eclipse energy.

New Moon conjunct Mercury Retrograde

Here you deal with the mental aspects of self worth, self value, and self love. The goal of self reflecting is to figure out what you truly want and also what you plan to do about it. How this shows up in your present reality and what efforts you plan to to take to fully realize your inner divinity to overcome any lack in the realms of self-identity. Self awareness and introspection is very important dealing with this placement. From these things you discover the only thing that matters now is your truth.

Mars in Aquarius Square Uranus is Taurus

Mars in Aquarius is very exhausted and pretty much disabled, so how do you adapt with this energy. Where things used to work for you and now they don’t, how will you adapt to those changes is how you overcome this Square. Learning how to walk on quicksand, defying gravity, breaking the laws of physics is what this energy is about. If one is to imagine their blocks as real, then so shall it be. This aspect is speaking to operating on pure will and fully realizing your ability to overcome all illusions that block you. So ultimately with all that has been said about the astrology this placement really encompasses the power of magic and freedom when done correctly. You do not have to be so logical when you actually tap into your power and are clear from all human miseducation and false beliefs.

Orisha of the Week

Orunmila/Orula

5da2078d1e5e8202083b99a7ee224795__84895.1522344225

Orula is a MAJOR Orisha that represents wisdom, knowledge, and divination. Divination meaning the practice of seeking knowledge of the future and discovering your unknown power. Divination is taken from the word divinare( to foresee, to be inspired by a God). Dealing with esoteric astrology you realize you are a complex system and ultimately your God is within yourself. So Orula is the Orisha that will help lead you the unknown power source within you. Orunmila is an Oracle, meaning he helps with things related to the human world and divine answers. When you deal with the divine you deal with answers and solutions. The key is to consult the divine within you for the answers for you. When Orunmila was born he was buried outside under a tree and forgot about. Once he was an adult his father Obatala asked for forgiveness and asked if he would like to come back home. Orula refused, he rather to spend the rest of his days in nature because nature had given him all he needed. Orunmila is very much outside of your societal everyday thought. He is deep into nature, herbs, and grounding with the same energy that empowers the trees. This energy is available to you as well if interested.

Peace and Prosperity,

The integumentary system comprises the skin and its appendages[1][2] acting to protect the body from various kinds of damage, such as loss of water or abrasion from outside.[3] The integumentary system includes hair, scales, feathers, hooves, and nails. It has a variety of additional functions; it may serve to waterproof, cushion, and protect the deeper tissues, excrete wastes, and regulate temperature, and is the attachment site for sensory receptors to detect pain, sensation, pressure, and temperature.

Kronos castrated his father with a sickle from Gaia. Hence the ‘sickle’.

We learn in the Third Degree lecture that the Scythe is an emblem of time, which cuts the brittle thread of life, and launches us into eternity. In classic Mythology, the scythe was associated with Saturn, the god of time, which in turn taught men to use the implement in agriculture. Many illustrations of time as a figure show an old man, usually bearded, having a hour glass in the one hand, and a scythe in the other. The scythe is often associated with destruction. However, upon deeper reflection, the scythe cuts the old to make way for the new – and thus the cycle of life repeats itself. For example, in order to gather the harvest (grain, which feeds life) the giver (in this case the plant) must be killed. Until the fifteenth century, it was not the scythe, but the sickle that was portrayed in similar ways the scythe is today. This probably reflects the changing implements used in farming. It should be noted, that the 13th Major Arcana Card in the Tarot, Death, depicts a scythe not cutting down life, but the wordly illusions. This also corresponds with its meaning, which is not the end, but the beginning of a cycle. In this case, the scythe is a positive tool – one that opens the door to the realm of the true and invisible reality.

Saturn
the planet Saturn represents the alchemical metal, lead. The image mimics the scythe of Saturn, the god of the harvest and time. The qualities of Saturn include limitation, protection, and restraint; lead is therefore used historically where these qualities are required- it is still common to see lead-lined caskets, and it is traditional to keep scriptures and religious relics shielded in lead reliquaries.

Alchemically, lead was the prima matera, or primal matter, and represented the putrefaction and decay necessary for new life.

The sigil is similar to the Hebrew letter Tau, which also has associations with time and death(alchemy). Saturn is also the roman correspondence of greek god Chronos, the personification of Time (mythology).

Carl Jung says: “The prima materia is ‘saturnine,’ and the malefic Saturn is the abode of the devil, or again it is the most despised and rejected thing, ‘thrown out into the street,’ ‘cast on the dung-hill,’ ‘found in filth” (alchemy/psychology).

The latter belong to a personal psychology, to the personality of the ego which is in the world, whereas the unconscious is not, but is rather a world itself.

It is really a projection of the unconscious, as we saw clearly in many of the definitions, for the Middle Ages, as well as Antiquity, saw the unconscious in nature.

We could define the unconscious as a psychical existence in ourselves of which we are unconscious.

The prima materia was a genuine numinosum, a holy, psychic/spiritual substance which allowed the alchemists to consciously experience both the light and dark sides of God within themselves. As Jung puts it, “the individual is confronted with the abysmal contradictions of human nature, and this confrontation in turn leads to the possibility of a direct experience of light and darkness, of Christ and the devil.”

Symbolically speaking, the prima materia corresponds to lead, which relates to Saturn-Chronos, the negative father. One of the prima materia’s many symbols is a weak and infirm old man, the mythic dying king, or “senex,” who has lost touch with feeling, with eros, with relatedness, with creativity, with compassion, and with love. This figure of the rigid-old-man-negative-father is symbolic of a calcification of consciousness which, out of fear of its own weakness, holds onto and becomes addicted to power and control. The dying old man represents a dominant position in consciousness which has outlived its usefulness, and thus becomes an obstacle to the growth and development of consciousness. This archetypal figure is in need of being liquefied and de-solidified, of being given an alchemical bath in the healing waters of the psyche.

Saturn, the corrupted patriarchy, mythologically speaking, is the governor of the prison, the one who binds us and seemingly limits our freedom, while simultaneously being the supreme tester and great purifier. Paradox is the language of alchemy, as it is an expression of the unified point of view in which the seeming opposites are no
t so opposed to each other after all.

To be under the spell of Saturn-Chronos, the dark father, “Father Time,” is to be entranced and absorbed in linear time at the expense of the timeless dimension of our being. To recognize that we are playing out on the world stage the mythic process of the negative patriarchy is to have an expansion of consciousness in which we step into a mythical dimension where time is not “chrono-logical.” When we snap out of the spell and logic of linear time, we wake up to “dreamtime,” where time is experienced as a radial-matrix whose center is here and now. Dreamtime is not linear but circular, not fixed but fluid, not mechanistic but natural, not historical but a-historical. Dissolving the figure of father time, of living by the clock, we become introduced to the “syn-chronic” order. The synchronic order, whose timing frequency is a universal factor of synchronization, is a realm of infinite interconnectedness and inter-resonance between everything and everything else. In the synchronic realm the microcosm and macrocosm are synchronistic, mirrored reflections of each other, different iterations of the same underlying, harmonic fractal. This inter-nested fractal reflects a singular nowness eternally unfolding in endlessly diverse and novel patterns.

Symbolic awareness is the very expansion of consciousness which nonlocally dissolves the rigid and fixed archetypal figure of Saturn-Chronos, the negative father, throughout the whole field, like pouring water on the wicked witch of the west, only in this case the whole world becomes “fluid,” and thus ripe with new possibilities.

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,”

This Week in Astrology — New Moon in Pisces (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.

NEW MOON IN PISCESMARCH 17TH, 2018 (1)

 

On March 17th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Pisces at 26°.  The 26-degree mark of Pisces represents recovering after a calamity, twists of fate, and having courage in tough situations.  This is a time where self-confidence is brought to the test. As this being the last days before spring when everything becomes new again, we must be ready to work a proper intention, based on intuition and creativity.  There is anticipation here as well as impatience because you have been in a cocoon for so long.  This New Moon is ushering in something new, do not be afraid of change, and recognize the unstableness in your life.  Do not be afraid, be encouraged.  Make sure that you keep all options open, and really trust your intuition(gut) as to where or what your next move should be.  Do not be provoked by glamour, be provoked by your living soul.  The third Decan of Pisces represents the beginnings of mood changes, so you will no doubt be on your toes in one way or another.  Learning how to deal with fluctuating emotions are important, based on the fact that you do not know what others are going through internally.  You will barely be able to understand yourself.  This New Moon will ask you to rely on your psychic proclivities above all things, so by being out of tune with yourself, you can see how that may create problems.  This will be a time of psychic vampires that are looking to create drama and negative situations in order to feed, make sure you are a great distance away from it, grab some popcorn and enjoy it.  (If you’re into that kind of thing)

 

There will be a major Square to Mars in Sagittarius during this New Moon cycle, bringing those intense dramatic feelings to the surface for purging, certain things cannot be repressed during this time so watch out.  Learn how to find healthy alternatives for venting and clearing yourself of frustration so you can be clear on your inner guidance system, to bring about proper intentions.  You want to avoid placing an intention to cover up past mistakes, its time to blow it all up and start fresh.  Set completely new intentions from the soul.  Tap into your instincts rather than what you think you know, by doing this you will tap into energies and manifest situations you couldn’t even dream about.  The New Moon in Pisces is telling you to trust yourself, follow your soul, and be clear on what the soul is saying.  The limits that we place on ourselves are the limits we will have during this transit.  Do not look to make rash decisions even in adversity, as the seasons’ change and the Sun transitions into Aries, there will be a great revelation.  All mistakes will be rectified.  With a Square to Mars, there may be a tendency to do things in a thoughtless fashion. It is very possible to do things during this cycle that we will greatly regret.  Learning how to adjust on the fly and being in the moment, is key.  For some of us, this is a test of self-confidence and consistency.  Do not give up on projects you started based on they are not going the way you think, if you truly want it, you may have to ride out the self-doubt until a breakthrough occurs.

 

The New Moon will be trine Jupiter in Scorpio inspiring a generosity towards yourself.  As you expand towards a deeper understanding of transformation and what it means for you, this is a time to really feed yourself the information you truly need.  Hang out with people that you truly want to be with, read books that truly resonate with you, and don’t be afraid to try new things.  This is a relaxing New Moon if we are able to let go and let the new flowers grow.  Share your real emotions with others, socialize, and do things that increase your mood.  This will be a time of increased popularity and notoriety as long as you stay in your truth.  Bonds can grow from this transit based on honesty and truth.  You can expect an increase in material wealth as well as influential friends who share the same mind as you.  Jupiter will be in Retrograde for next 4 months.  Jupiter will be looking for poison or any blockages to happiness and success.  The things that come up during the next 4 months will be things we need to correct, not continue to ignore.  

 

During this New Moon cycle, there are some transits affecting the North Node that are of note as well.  There will be an inconjunction to Neptune in Pisces, wanting you to highlight the motivations behind your behaviors, and get those in check.  You may be doing things that others simply want you to do whether it is at work, in relationships, or with family.  When the goal is to listen to the soul and do the things you truly want.  There is also a Square to Jupiter that makes it hard to just go along with the status quo, you have to follow your own personal prompts.

 

What Chiron/Moon eventually comes to understand is that the physical world is not the opposite of the divine world, the two are one.

 

This New Moon represents a deep need to succeed and be successful, and what you need and don’t need for that process to manifest correctly.  Strive to live with purpose and determination over passiveness.  It is a time to solve the mystery of you and why you were put on this earth.  Pay attention to your studies and personal interactions as they represent a psychological mirror.  The things you see in them that you like or dislike are indications of things you need to work on.  Exercise, Pet projects, and hobbies are what may be needed to remove those energies that disturb you, in order for you to be free to listen to your living soul.    

 

Orisha of the Week

Olosȧ

olosa-orisha-deidada-yoruba.gif

 

Pisces is ruled by the Orisha Olokun.  Olokun represents the deep subconscious mind, soul, inner God, and key to abundance and wealth.  Based on the abstract nature of our subconscious mind, getting into contact with Olokun is often seem to be impossible.  You need to go through the proper channels.  Olokun has a sister/wife known by the name of Olosȧ to which he/she issues his/her messages to.  Olosa is the Orisha of Lagoons she represents the lagoons that precede the ocean.  She is one of the survivors of Ancient Egypt, as the deity Sobek.  Sobek was the deity of power, fertility, and magic.  He also was a protective deity.  Sobek was a crocodile God, like Olosa.  The crocodile represents your reptilian brain, tapping into this aspect is where the magic happens.  Olosa is known as the deepest Oshun, the Oshun that makes music, she is one of the hardest most strict of the paths of Oshun.  Her color is Pearl.  She transmits messages to Olokun. (Pisces New Moon) She will help in the realms of beauty, love, hatred, severity, inflexibility, tolerance, and sensuality.
