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.


Tarot Card of the New Moon in Leo 2018

6 of Wands

Victory

6 of wands.jpg

The 6 of Wands is the Tarot Card that rules the 2nd Decan of Leo and this card speaks to overall Victory. It represents creative power based on a reception from your divine source, being fully stable, and living in truth. Abundance, Wealth, Success in complete connection with self-assurance, self-fulfillment, strength, and triumph. This card and this time is really questioning your optimism, if you are not optimistic, what are you going to do about it. Why are you not optimistic? This is not something given to you, this victory is based on winning a battle with self.

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,

Lunar Eclipse | July 27th, 2018 | A Cicadas Song

 Become a Patron!

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.

Introduction

On July 27th, 2018 we will be experiencing a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 4 degrees Aquarius, while the Sun is at 4 degrees in Leo. In this article, we will discuss what these astrological aspects could mean and how we can begin to prepare for this energy now. This Lunar Eclipse will be hitting on some earlier themes and intentions made during past moon cycles. We will have the energetic sun in the energetic fire sign of Leo opposed the airy, unpredictable, and emotional Aquarius full moon. When the sun is opposed to the moon is likening to a flashlight shining brightly on our hidden unconscious motivations and desires. Even Though there is much hoopla surrounding a full moon and its positive effects, my personal opinion is that is an aesthetic and naive point of view of full moons. Ultimately Full Moon’s highlight the things we must clear to continue to move forward with higher ideals and perceptions. A Lunar Eclipse is a full moon is when the earth is situated in between the Moon and the Sun casting a shadow on the moon. Symbolically this provides action, insight, and breakthroughs. Throughout history, the Lunar Eclipse marked critical turning points in human evolution. So if a Solar Eclipse means setting intentions, a Lunar Eclipse means reaping the rewards of previous intentions. So if we have been sowing stress unconsciously this Full Moon could manifest more stress. Since this Lunar Eclipse is a personal astrological phenomenon its important that we take personal responsibility. Ultimately we will explain in this article how we can redefine ourselves and our motivations. We will learn the consequences of immediate gratification and also the rewards of constantly building energy and positive affirmations. Whether you do this consciously or unconsciously it is best to be mindful of what intentions you are sowing regardless of circumstance. We are simply living a result of a previous intention.

Moon conjunct Mars & South Node in Aquarius

opposed

Sun conjunct North Node in Leo

This energy is very erratic and unpredictable. If this disturbs you or frightens you be mindful to step in front of the problems or fears in your life. Hoping that your skeletons don’t come out of the closet may not be enough during this transit. There may be some emotional patterns that need to be broke with Mars’ energy and the South Nodes connection to past lives to break generational curses once and for all. Since  Uranus rules Aquarius, the added flavor of a Square to Uranus doubles down on excitable energy that needs to be processed and experienced to be fully understood. This is an overall feeling of keeping the grass cut so the snakes will show. This is an active, preventive, protective, planning energy otherwise known as foresight. See problems before they happen and do something about it. Spirit is trying to release you from bondage but you do not see it nor are you prepared to be released.

Full Moon T-Square with Uranus in Taurus

  The Moon and Sun will both form 90 degree angles to Uranus simultaneously creating a T-square, this brings challenges and obstacles to overcome. Your eagerness to attack these problems as opposed to falling back into a deeper isolation will really be key during this powerful transit we will be experiencing. Our ideals will be severely challenged by competition from the actual reality and what will you do about it. If you have been positively sowing seeds then people will wonder where all of this good fortune has come from and that can be our little secret. There will also be people going through a variety of issues and adversities, it may be up to you to offer help to those who truly need the help. This may just be a part of the journey to creating a vibration of universal love and selflessness. Ultimately this energy speaks to a test and what any test, your grade matters.

Sun Trine Chiron in Aries | Sun Square Jupiter | Sun inconjunct Saturn

The Sun in Leo is an energetic force, meaning that it only matters when applied to physical pursuits. An abundance of energy with no modality to release it doesn’t really matter. So understanding our actions with aligned motivations creates an indirect channel for healing due to the trine with Chiron in Aries. A square to Jupiter says that in order for this healing to take place there has to be some clearing of past trauma. This is an ultimate test in perception, do you perceive doom and gloom or perceive your spiritual birthright. Ultimately we have to understand that our individual purpose is important, so what steps and realizations are going to take to realize it.

Saturn in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus

This aspect speaks to the changes that are happening that ultimately needs to happen, the more you fight the energy of change, the more of the lesson is not understood. Ultimately the changes that occur are representations of the freedom you are now experiencing. Being attached to an ideal or the past will block you from the freedom you now are experiencing. Will you block this energy by doing the same things over and over again is totally up to you.

Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces

How we can begin or continue to heal:

Journaling

Dream Journal

Keeping track of visions and intuition

Keeping track of coincidences

The things that are happening are trying to tell a deeper story at all times. The story of who you truly are and are you able to listen to the messages and incorporate them into your waking life. This is a spiritual time.

Neptune in Pisces square Venus in Virgo

Understanding the difference between universal love as opposed to personal existential love. Universal love is active, existential love is passive. Love is to be given. Because your love is inside of you how do you display it?

Tarot Card of the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius | 5 of Swords & 5 of Wands

Meanings:

Facing and overcoming inner demons and negative mindsets.

Courage and Bravery.

Persistence.

Self Development

Willful

Unpredictable

Relationship Conduct

The consequences of avoiding conflict

Thoroughly discussing an honest viewpoint for the purpose of finding a solution.

Orisha of the Week

Oya y Shango

Many eons ago, Shango was involved in an endless war. He had fought for many days and killed many of his enemies, but this time there were more than he could kill. At once he was surrounded.

He searched for his horse, Enchile, but he was nowhere to be found. His enemies approached closer. He had hidden enough to escape to Oya’s cabin in the middle of the woods.

When she saw Shango she was startled, “What happened to you?” she exclaimed

Shango began to tell Oya what happened to him. He needed Oya’s help. Oya thought for a second and told Shango. “When night falls, you will put on one of my dresses, and you will escape. I’m going to cut my hair to save my kings life.”

When nightfall came and they executed the plan perfectly to escape. Shango was not afraid of his enemies, he did not lack courage, he was simply overworked and needed some help and rest.

With proper rest, Shango came back fired up ready to defeat his enemies. The interesting thing he never took Oya’s hair and Oya’s hair remained cut. The declaration was that whenever Oya helps Shango there is a victory.

What is being shown in this Pataki is that when you align your masculine and feminine energy you are ultimately invincible. The other lesson is that even though you may have done a lot on your own, you can not do everything on your own.

 

I hope this message resonated with you.

 

Peace

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 Aries (April 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 April 15th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Aries at 26°.  The 26th Degree Mark of Aries speaks to overcoming, being inventive, and nonconforming.   Finding answers to solutions through unconventional means.  Under the persona you have created lies deeper work that has to be done.  Ultimately this point represents finding a new way to solve an old problem.   Since this New Moon is in the 3rd decan of  Aries it represents a point of mediation and reconciliation of your life.  Which makes this New Moon, in particular, a powerful one to be experienced or observed.

New Moons represent a time for setting intentions.  Due to coming off of a waning period of releasing and purging, our needs and desires are different.  This is important to understand that we shouldn’t set an intention based on what we think we need.  We can set the intention that is best for our purpose and deepest soul’s desire.  When we set our own intentions more than likely we are trying to manifest a situation to cover a void instead of dealing with it directly.  When doing this, it creates more problems then we had before even deciding to set an intention.  That is why it is best to enter into New Moons with a clean slate and pure heart.   Use the waning time to prepare and cleanse your being of unwanted hinderances and blocks.

During a Full Moon, the Sun is in opposition to the Moon giving it light to project into your mind.  During the New Moon, the Sun and Moon are conjunct/together actually blocking the Sun/light and allowing your Emotions to override your sensibilities.  So when we are speaking of what we want and desire during this time it is not based on anything spiritual, it is based filling a void or creating an expectation to meet that will supposedly make you happy.  It is better to enter this New Moon with concepts rather than realities.  Things like gratitude, prosperity, and health.  As opposed to something specific.  Focus on how we want to feel rather than what we want to experience.  Because you may experience what you want and it makes you feel like shit.  In summation, you may not know what you want.

This Week in AstrologyFull Moon in AriesApril 15th, 2018 (1)

“A new moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits.Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for!”

The New Moon in Aries will be conjunct Uranus signaling a very dramatic time in the world and for the individual.  We all will be going through changes in one way or another.  It is a time to stand up and think outside the box and awaken the latent forces inside of you that you always knew you had but now it is time to use them.    

Ultimately we have to separate truth from facts in our life.  Align with the truth of our being and act out that reality instead of focusing on old facts of a prior existence that no longer serve us.  This is a new beginning and an ending to understanding who we really are on this planet and in this life during this time.  Things that were once comfortable being hidden will no longer find comfort in secrecy.  Uranus’ influence on this New Moon will be forcing us to bring things to the surface.  These shadow influences need to be talked about, addressed and brought to the surface.

There will be a Uranus square Pluto aspect that will be activated during the New Moon in Aries.  Whenever Uranus and Pluto come together in any aspect they represent the necessary and revolutionary changes that have to take place in the collective and the individual.  In this instance, it is a square so it is representing a hardship or a situation that needs to be overcome.  Pluto represents death to who we believe we are and rebirth to what we truly are.  Uranus represents the breaking down of our belief structures and opens us up to what we truly are.  These energies allow us to transform into what we are truly put on this earth to be.    When Pluto and Uranus are together, this creates more of a forceful awakening to who we are.  It encourages us to go beyond our current reality and it is showing us in what ways we can actually do that.  The trouble is trying to run from what is being shown to you at this time, the things that inspire change and growth.  What is truly taking place is a breakdown of old structures and if this is something that disturbs you then it is the breaking down of the structure it is the relationship you have to an old decaying form of being.  Understanding and incorporating the divine feminine into your energy is very key at this time.  (<<<< Check my video on Pomba Gira for more insight)  If you are dealing with your structures falling apart or the old ways of doing things no longer working than you are in perfect alignment for change.  The old must breakdown so it can become renewed and empowered to be something greater than before. If you are experiencing good times in your life will be more magical and more amazing than ever before because you have been through the breakdown to breakthrough process. 

 The Venus in Taurus opposed Jupiter in Scorpio transit will be highlighted during this New Moon transit.  Bringing to surface some family issues versus business and creative pursuits. Ultimately, try to bring those forces into one picture, because currently they are opposed.  Venus in Taurus represents the possessive attachment we have to physical pleasures.  Jupiter in Scorpio is one’s opportunity to figure out the best solution for your greatest expansion.  An opposition is an irreconcilable inner force.  Some things will never be what we want them to be but we need to understand where those points are so we don’t try to force it.   If you have any interest in the meaning of life itself then this transit will affect you.  If you are concerned about external things and the meaning of life means nothing to you then carry on as normal.  If you are concerned however then it is time to start taking directions in answering those questions you have.  Avoiding it will be the cause of much distress and confusion.

The New Moon in Aries is conjunct with Uranus highlighting the possibility of conflict with the established routines and feelings, with the disruptive energy of Uranus.  Take note of your heart and take note of how your head directs you it directions away from your heart.  If this is happening, make the proper adjustments.  There are almost certain to be surprises in your life during this New Moon phase but it’s important to shake yourself of any routine that is leading you to a place you ultimately don’t want to be in.

Using this energy correctly brings about much success, although problems may seem to be insurmountable.  Finding creative outlets for our ideas and visions is most rewarding.  This is a time to awaken to stereotypes and stigmas that don’t fit you or align with you on the inner level.  It’s easy to be seen as a show-off or seeking attention when you are simply being yourself.  As the saying goes, “if you have haters then you must be doing something right” 

Orisha of the Week

Ogun

This New Moon in Aries above all things represents acting out of self-awareness as opposed to acting out of routine or habit.  No orisha symbolizes this behaviour more than Ogun.  Ogun represents Mars, the ruling planet of Aries.  Ogun represents our assertive and aggressive actions that need to take place for creation to take place.  Ultimately understanding and realizing your highest potential by creating yourself in the image you would like to be.  You have a choice to become a weapon or a tool.  This is what Ogun’s energy speaks to.  Ogun has the intelligence and creativity to invent tools, weapons, and technology.  He has the strength to create a path for the individual.  When you see the machete or the knife that Ogun creates you may think it is a weapon but you must realize that a knife can kill and it can also save you if surgery is required.

“Herukhuti/Ogun….This is the energy within us that removes obstacles that impede us from continuing on our journey to spiritual growth, development and enlightenment. Herukhuti is fiery energy that we can use to “burn” off the antiquated parts of ourselves. In one respect, Herukhuti’s energy is great because he says, “Do it NOW!” However, the challenge in that is actually releasing those parts of ourselves that don’t serve us any longer.”

Ogun has many different paths, the one I want to call to your attention that is applicable to this article is OGGUN ONILE.  “Oggun Onile means “the owner of the land”. It is called this way when it walks through unexplored lands, hunting and discovering. Its title refers to the first that arrives at a virgin place and is established in it, being the first to work it.”  Ogun like many Orishas is syncretized and transferred from earlier Egyptian deities.  In this case, Ogun is Heru-Khuti.  Heru-Khuti is the divine principle that safeguards our existence by any means, he protects you from injustices, and constantly upholds the law “you reap what you sow”.  Heru Khuti operates under the premise that God neither punishes nor rewards nor protects, it is your responsibility.  We are dealing with the fundamental principle that we create our adversity by tuning into our original nature we remove all obstacles instantly.  So the goal is not revenge, the goal is to raise our level of understanding and grow in spirituality.

“In the Kamitic tradition, it is the form in which Heru fights against Set in order to regain the throne (control over one’s life) that the latter usurped. While Heru corresponds to the steady supply of noradrenaline that enables us to carry out all activities of externalization, Herukhuti (Heru-Behutet) corresponds to the extreme surges of adrenalin that support our aggressive, sexual arousal and immune responses.”

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

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.  

This Week in Astrology — Full Moon in Gemini

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 December 3rd, 2017 the Moon in Gemini will be opposed the Sun in Sagitarrius both planets square the planet Neptune in the constellation of Pisces.  Creating a sense of tragedy or comedy, depending on the perspective and understanding of the individual.  This will occur 8 hours after Mercury stations retrograde, conjunct Saturn signifying a reward or discipline awarded to an individual.  Depending on the houses that this happens in your chart.

The Sun is in a fire sign, Sagittarius where it is comfortable being fire and creating more fire.  The Moon in Gemini can be the balance of just the right amount of air and moisture to maintain the fire or if unchecked could blow the flame completely out, forcing one to create from scratch all over again.  This is the energy we are dealing with during this Full Moon.  Understanding the why is important during this full moon transit.  If we are moving through life unconsciously, meaning we have no actual why then this full moon will be a powerful time of awakening.  If we choose not to make emotional adjustments to rectify this unconscious behavior, then we will undoubtedly see discord.  Understanding and living through one’s personal truths are paramount during this time.

This Sun and Moon fall on the 11th degree of Sagittarius and Gemini,  Neptune is at 11 degrees Pisces and Jupiter are at 11 degrees in Scorpio.  All of these 11’s at one time signifies a portal or gateway, a point of transcendence.  Jupiter in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces activating the illumination of deeper truths of your existence.  This may mean comforts and support externally, or this may mean an inner contentment and satisfaction in the knowledge of your truth.  You tend to see the world fully now and this could be that the truth of a situation, relationship, or decision may be hurtful.  We must learn to accept the differences in this world, as opposed to viewing differences as things that need to be eliminated, this point of view only causes more strife.

Understanding this full moon is understanding the lesson of duality, like and unlike being one, as above/so below, etc….  When we actively oppose a situation then we are only making it worse, only when we accept the opposition then can we start to find balance and peace within.  Depending on the houses that correspond to this full moon will determine the illusions in your life that must be overcome and revealed.  So the lies, deception, misinformation, loss, and disappointment is an indication, not an aberration of what needs to be done to correct those illusions in your life that will allow you to transition over into a mode of freedom.

Full Moons are the most powerful astrological transit, combined with a Mercury Retrograde conjunct Saturn, Squared Neptune brings about powerful energy shift in consciousness and physical situations.   Saturn is there making sure you are not giving into the pressure of outside forces and is also there to reward you or remind you that you shouldn’t live for the purpose of making other people happy.  The discipline that Saturn brings is not necessarily bad, it is actually a form of protection for ourselves and our capacity to make bad decisions.  One should be focusing on one’s spiritual truth above all things, but the reality is that people do not fully understand the magnitude of rejecting their spiritual reality and the subsequent consequences.

We prepare for this full moon with the transit of Mars in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries.  The question arises in the form of can we act on our higher spiritual principles(Uranus in Aries) or just simply acting on our ego’s impulse actions (Mars in Libra).  This is a shadow zone, where our fears are projected in situations, people, or occurrences.  You may have to deal with impossible people or situations, the understanding is realizing that you are projecting.  Uranus is the great awakener, so it generally brings with it changes, no matter how comfortable the ego is with those subsequent changes.   You may be on the attack or people may be on the attack for you, understanding the projection, one will immediately alleviate the problem.

8 hours before this full moon starts Mercury conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius stations Retrograde.  Realizing that your own personal beliefs are the main thing oppressing you, is a hard thing to digest and accept.  Those who seek truth have learned to keep persisting no matter the obstacle, there is no obstacle that can not be overcome, you wouldn’t know that if you were taught to give up at any challenge or obstacle.  Mercury representing our mind is ahead of us in Sagittarius, as it retrogrades it comes back and gives us the insight it has gathered ahead of us.  This information is new, and it can sometimes be overwhelming.  One must take the time out to listen to ourselves and take serious one’s visions, dreams, and inner truth.  Being caught up in what everybody else has to say will not serve you.  Pay attention to the “crazy” person, they may have the most to say during this time.  If society or the media is branding someone as crazy or misinformed, you may want to listen to that.  Mercury retrograde is new information, new information sounds crazy because you never heard it before, it’s not actually crazy.
