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?

Orisha of the Week

OSHUN IBU KOLE

poster,210x230,f8f8f8-pad,210x230,f8f8f8.lite-1u2

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.

Full Moon in Scorpio April 29th, 2018 |Magic and the Alchemy of Manifestation

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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 April 29th, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 9° Scorpio, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  This Full Moon is centered around Magic and the Alchemy of manifestation.  This time is filled with unusual situations and personalities, this is a time for great examination and observation.

There will be a variety of factors pulling strings so there will be no easy solution to problems.  The Moon in Scorpio provides us with a transformative energy, the ability to resurrect your emotions and began to feel again.  In order for this to happen certain emotions have to die. This is speaking to the Full Moon in Scorpio.   Nature always seeks to correct itself by meeting extremes with extremes.  So in regards to the weather and injustices, there has to be an extreme that needs to occur based on the fact that life has to balance itself out.  This does not mean that this Full Moon will be “all bad”, it also has the ability to reach extreme success out of extreme negative circumstances.   Back to the theme of this Full Moon which is Magic and the Alchemy of manifestation, this provides transformative power beyond your dreams and imaginings.  Let’s look at the transits to see how this will come to be.

Full Moon usually brings things to the forefront, things we try to hide, and also things we are trying to manifest.  Ultimately if you are not aware of this force you will ultimately lose control of this energy.  Full Moons are emotional times and emotions can go either up or down.   The light of the Sun(in Taurus) is shining a light into the Moon(in Jupiter), this can be good or bad, depending on the things that reside in your shadow.  Full Moon’s aren’t majestic and favorable, they are not a cure for your ills.  Moon’s are actually satellites for our mind and they will intensify whatever we focus on.  Good or Bad.  So if you are unaware of this energy you are susceptible to manipulation.  Farmers use the Moon’s to plant, the ocean relies on the moon for ebb and flow, so it serves us to get in tune with the magnetic forces so we can properly navigate through this matrix.

The Full Moon in Scorpio 2018 creates a Pentagram in the chart.  This is a result of 2 Yods intersecting.  A yod is three planets that form an isosceles triangle.  The Two Yods are as follows: 1) The Moon inconjunct Venus and Mercury.  2) Saturn inconjunct North Node and Venus 3) North Node trine Mercury to complete the pentagram.  What does this mean?

First of all, an inconjunction or quincunx means ultimately a misunderstanding.  Furthermore, it speaks to a base of understanding, that can lead to something greater.  An example of a quincunx is like the first day of school, the things that transpire on this day may be the basis for a whole school year.  So make sure you are dressed well and feel your best because ultimately it is a chance to make an impact.  I will discuss the aspects in full detail in my video posted at the beginning of this article.

Orisha of the Week

The 3 sisters (Yemoja, Oshun, and Oya)

images (1)

We have a Full Moon in Scorpio so we will examine the 3 orishas who stand on top of this transit.  The Moon in Scorpio(Yemoja & Oya), Sun in Taurus (Oshun).  Oya the ruler of the graveyards is responsible for our transformation, Yemoja the oldest sister and mother like is here for emotional balance, Oshun representing life and enjoyment lets us know that the transformation is ultimately for our growth and development.  If we can properly transform with the proper knowledge we can understand this full moon,  if we are simply just trying to keep things up for posterity’s sake then we will have to deal with Oya’s wrath as opposed to Oya’s assistance.  It’s important for us to not avoid transformation but embrace transformation.    Things ultimately change, so be ahead of the curve while you still have that choice.

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.  

Full Moon in Virgo {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 March 8, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 11° Virgo, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  The 11th degree of Virgo alludes to wealth, relationships, and trickery.  We will examine this Full Moon transit in depth and uncover some mysteries along the way.  The Full Moon in Virgo coincides with the previous Solar Eclipse in Aquarius by being the result of that time of setting intentions.  Pay attention to the things you manifest, every cause has an effect.  The Sun represents who you project yourself to be, The Moon represents how we truly feel, since these two forces are opposed, The Full Moon represents a point to which we must understand this tension to resolve it.  So the things we have tried to avoid and not address comes into full focus during these times.  The goals you set during the Solar Eclipse can be re-examined and fine-tuned during this time as well.  This is a time of harvest.  This Full Moon will challenge us to be our best selves moving forward by shining a light on those not so pleasant aspects of ourselves and giving us the energy to make changes.  Dieting, seeing a mental health professional, detox clinic, or even rehab may be the best thing to do if you find yourself struggling with some inner conflict.  Let us now look at some aspects that support this Full Moon in Virgo.  

 

The Sun will be Conjunct Venus and Neptune in Pisces, creating a mystical guidance system for you.  The Moon will be opposite Neptune in Venus highlighting the ability to perceive things, good or bad.  It is best to speak our truth and be honest, the problem comes with holding things in that you rather say, this creates the most problems in our relationships and affairs.  Finding time to yourself to find out what is truly important to YOU, can also do you some good in easing the inner tension.  The issue of denial is really big and these are things that must be addressed moving forward.  Looking at our patterns and habits, see the ones that are hindering us, and make the necessary changes moving forward.  Sometimes we focus on others so we don’t have to focus on ourselves.  

 

In our shadow watch, we take a look at the Jupiter in Scorpio trine aspect to the Sun, Venus, and Pisces. This may be a time when people will begin to profit off of their pain, find lucrative ways to express themselves or do the necessary work to heal.  Whether it is rehab, seeing a psychologist, or forming a sister/brotherhood where you can be honest.  A reminder that honesty is a sure-fire way to progress over any obstacle, also you may be faced with no other alternative but to be honest. This is a time for expansion and enhancing even if you are doing good, don’t be afraid to strive for better and upgrade.  There is a way we can strive for growth without being greedy, by making sound investments and thinking of the future, this is a good time to prepare for the future.  

 

Peace and contentment are available if we are really in seek of it.  Understanding that everything has a counterbalance of light and dark, our goal is to balance this force moving forward.  Things will start to manifest in our lives now at a fast rate, things we can only dream about now, learning how to prepare for these miracles is the proper mindstate.  Another reminder is that joy comes from the inside, happiness is based on happenstance, so create the happy situations from within, this is a major key.  

 

There is a Mars Square Venus transit we want to pay attention too as well.  We may be seeking things and people that satisfy us and only us, this may or may not be a problem, depending on if you are in a relationship or not.   As you rise in finances and status so does your passions, be mindful of your tendency to be lustful and overindulgent.  There will be challenges in the realms of harmony, a routine is not necessarily harmonious, joy is a major factor to harmony.  So be mindful…. Avoid superficial bonds, strive for mental and emotional connections for these will be the most beneficial of bonds.  

ORISHAS OF THE WEEK

Olokun is the Orisha of great wealth and great mysteries.  Often veiled, one would need a messenger to have access to the great wealth and greater mysteries made just for us.  Eshu Aye is that messenger, said to walk along the seashores accompanied by Yemaya, holding the key to the treasure vaults of Olokun.  Esu Aye is the treasure keeper, who brings great wealth and financial stability.  Offerings can be made to him to ensure financial success.  This Esu knows all that we want, work with him during this full moon in Virgo to secure the bag.

It is said that Esu Aye is the one who works with Olokun.  Esu Aye is sent down to earth to answer prayers, they come in the form of mystical and prophetic visions, these visions provide guidance beyond limited concerns of everyday consciousness.  Make sure you find time outside of your everyday thoughts to access this energy and use it to your benefit.  

Olokun deals with the realms of our unconscious mind and things beyond this physical reality.  Olokun’s aspects are expressed in the astral realms, dreams, or in altered states of consciousness.  Olokun is accessed through meditation, initiation, or possession.  Olokun is deep and mysterious, no one knows what’s on the ocean floor.  Olokun is the owner of those mysteries on the ocean floor, she/he activates our inner genius when worked with.  Olokun will grant you great wealth, prosperity, and health.  He/She possesses unmatchable wisdom and is respected as an authority to all water deities.  

This Full Moon brings opportunities through healing, when we realize and work on our inner issues, the direct result is external well being.  If we are avoiding the inner work, our outer reality will begin to suffer and create almost unbearable tension.  Hopefully, this article gives you enough solutions to deal with the current energy bestowed on the planet.  Let me know if this was helpful, or if you have any additional questions.

 

Peace.

This Week in Astrology — Solar Eclipse in Aquarius (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 February 15th, 2018 a partial solar eclipse will take place on the planet.  A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth.  A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon and with any New Moon, this is a time for setting intentions and new beginnings. The Solar Eclipse is a New Moon with additional power.  So in this article, we will discuss the transits that will be happening during this Solar Eclipse cycle and some things we can do to prepare for it.  

New Moon in Aquarius

A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct, this New Moon is in the Constellation of Aquarius.  To fully understand this transit we have to fully examine the sign of Aquarius and what it means.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, it is an Air sign, it promotes originality unpredictability.  Themes during an Aquarius transit will be around surrendering, liberation, and freedom.  The Sun and the Moon represent who you are personally and how you are feeling.  A New Moon is a perfect time to calibrate how you feel with who you are so you can live a more authentic life.  We have an inner and outer life, this New Moon cycle is a perfect time to align those lives so that we can express ourselves in truth.  Like any New Moon, the Solar Eclipse is a time for setting intentions and using the energy available to bring about a personal transformation. With any Solar Eclipse New Moon, this is the ending and beginning of a new and old cycle.

A deeper understanding of this time we are living in will give you the peace of mind needed to move forward.  We are living in a time called the Aquarian Age, our central sun is approaching this constellation, so with each passing year, we get closer to the full realization of the age.  The Aquarian Age represents humanity’s realization of their essential unity, how to be apart of the collective, as well as being an original person.  Freedom is a theme of the Aquarian Age, so to fully get free you will have to see where you are imprisoned and free yourself.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and this New Moon is additionally aided by a sextile to Uranus in Aries, adding more energy around the possibility for change and unexpected circumstances.  If you use this energy to reflect a changed person and are focused on your goals, you will be propelled to heights once thought unimaginable.  On the contrary, if one is struggling with change, this will be a rough transit based on missed opportunities and likely regret.  If one recognizes that change is supreme one will likely flourish through our current Eclipse Cycle.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse will square Jupiter in Scorpio, which will give us all an opportunity to overcome some major obstacles.   Jupiter in Scorpio is a light in the darkness.  Do you like what you see? Are you willing to change the things you do not like?  This is not a time for doom and gloom, this is an opportunity to make major changes.  It is a matter of perspective, yet there will be a large amount of energy available to actually overcome those obstacles.

“Where Jupiter in Libra was about working through our relationship with the outside world and balancing our inner work to find the greatest expansion of ourselves. Jupiter in Scorpio looks to bring optimism in our darker expressions to bring about expansion through transformation.”

New Moon in Aquarius (1)

During this New Moon, Mars will be Aspected by Neptune in Pisces and North Node in Leo.  Mars is in the Constellation of Sagittarius energizing exploration, adventure, optimism, and faith.  Actions are focused on the future and the energy will be available to make changes for the better.  Mars trine the North Node doubles down on this optimistic view of the future, it does not matter where you are in the present.  With a square to Neptune, it is important for the individual to be focused on a real result, rather than a fantasy. 

The Shango Eclipse 

tumblr_inline_np80wumrnF1sg2o43_540

Aquarius is associated with change, rebellion, and disruption all themes that reflect Shango, the warrior Orisha of thunder, lightning, and fire.  Shango is known for working miracles.  Shango also rules over friends and associations, how people view you and receive you.  High Shango energy means you are well received and have a high sexual energy.  Shango also has dominion in the astrology transit of Mars in Sagittarius where energy and focus come together for a beautiful dance.  Dancing is one of Shango’s main characteristics.

Shango & Oya

This New Moon will be sextile Uranus, inviting Shango(New Moon in Aquarius) and Oya(Uranus in Aries) to once again unite to bring a major change in the individual.  “Oya is the favorite wife of Shango, the only wife who remained true to him until the end, leaving Oyo with him and becoming a deity when he did. She is Goddess of the Niger River, which is called the River Oya, but she manifests herself as the strong wind that precedes a thunderstorm. When Shango wishes to fight with lightning, he sends his wife ahead of him to fight with the wind.”   Shango once had 2 wives.  Oshun who was sexually attractive.  Oba who was the perfect doting wife.  He banished both of them because he realized that is not what he wanted.  He wanted something much more, he wanted a partner, and that is what he found in Oya.  Oya gave Shango his space, she complimented him and was there for him when he needed her the same as he was for her.  Oya recognized she needed space too.  They formed a balanced and supportive relationship.

What we can take from this story, is how to find our perfect balance.  Are we living in the ideal we had as children? Have we matured to enough to create a new ideal, that fits our new viewpoint of ourselves?  We have to be honest about our needs and what we truly want in order to get it.  Peace in our lives comes from honesty.  We can be honest with others and still not be honest with ourselves, creating the illusion of wellness, Shango is trying to present you with the reality of wellness.  To get there, you must be honest with yourself.  It is imperative.   We may have reached where we have become too arrogant and settled in our ignorance to make a change with our free will, that is when Shango and Oya come through with the energy of change, whether you like it or not.
