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.

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.

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.

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.

New Moon in Scorpio — Walking on frozen water

On November 18th, 2017 we will be experiencing a New Moon in Scorpio.  New Moons represent the beginning of a new cycle as well as an end to an old cycle.  Scorpio’s power is that of transformation, death, and rebirth.  This time is a time of setting the stage for the next act in your life.

Scorpio also reveals the underlying motivations for particular harmful behaviors.  This particular New Moon will be in the 3rd decan, ushering an inside look at the problems of societies aimlessness.  Behaviors that are particularly damaging to the inner child’s development, will be highlighted and hopefully extinguished.  You have to see the actual damage that is being done to actually be inspired to do something about it.  This New Moon will point out the problems with alternative parenting, teenage depression, and opiate deaths of teenagers.  Normality and structure are frowned upon in this society, to its detriment nonetheless.  All you have to do is look at the President if we truly want to see what this country is all about.  This is a good time to switch off the “News” and spend some time in the darkness of the New Moon.  The womb of creation.

The three days leading up to the New Moon is referred to as the Dark Moon period when the moon becomes invisible which represents a liminal time.  The liminal figure I want to bring your attention to during this period is the Orisha Olokun.  These are times of transition and transformation.  Olokun represents the dark and cold bottom of the ocean.  The deep part where no light can get and no heat.  Just the dead marine life and plants that slowly travel to the lowest depths of the sea which no man can survive.  From these depths, Olokun stretches her wisdom and forms a bridge from one place to another.  Olokun represents the untouched and unmarked ideas embedded deep in your subconscious mind.  During the Dark Moon with proper concentration and focus, one can fulfill his wildest desires and hopes. Olokun holds the mysteries.  These times hold tremendous magical power if you’re not afraid of the Dark.  Certain deities are not discussed as much as others based on the liminality of the certain diety.  Most people are not ready to make the major transitions and transformations that require a change in scenery, environment, or perception.  There is a tremendous energy bestowing generosity and power if one deals with his/her interior.

This New Moon brings change based on its Uranus inconjunction.  Most people fear change and will find it hard to integrate themselves.  Learn to be flexible and open to change.  Set positive intentions through ritual.  Concentration and Focus is the solution to stagnation.  Making minor changes could bring major results if you take heed.

Keeping it Conscious Episode 6 (Pomba Gira and the Divine Whore symbolism)

 

Pomba Gira is a liminal spirit of the Afro-Brazilian lure.  She is not a singular being but a multitude of spirits that manifest in a variety of ways.  She is the Goddess of the crossroads or better understood by the thresholds.  The moment of becoming, when you let go of your past yet don’t know what the future you holds.  Pomba Gira is seen by some as a healer and a great spirit, while others see her as the wife of the Devil.  This is mainly because she is a spirit that delivers and disrupts the status quo.  Thus she is seen as dangerous and as a prostitute, the lowest on the female social order.   Many prostitutes are targets from rapists, murderers, and human traffickers based on their easy access and vulnerability.  The main reason is that they are likely to be prosecuted because cops and the rest of the society think they deserve it based on their profession.    Thus at the same time, even those woman are protected by the energy of Pomba Gira.  At the very same time, if women were to master the energy of Pomba Gira, that would mean the end of male dominance and inequality.  Pomba Gira has the energy to reveal all answers and give a woman all the power and dominance they can handle.  Pomba Gira’s most famous Avatar that seems to embody her qualities in the most precise manner is the Iberian Peninsula transport, Maria Padilha.

Maria was the consort of a Castilian King Don Pedro.  He was known as a cruel man that killed his wife Bianca, relatives, family, whoever spoke against his mistress Maria.  It was said she had control over him with her 6,000 evil spirits.  This story was of Portuguese and Spanish folklore and traveled to Brazil during the Colonial Years.  When it came to slavery and spirits to use to escape atrocious conditions the people would commonly invoke Maria Padilha to strike down oppression.  She is a very popular diety to contact because she works.  Why it is very little in-depth information on now is because she works.  She is a deity to call when you need to raise your feminine energy to dominate any opposition you face in the world.  Understanding how to contact Pomba Gira is through pure heart and understanding.  She cannot be bought or pimped on you.  Dealing with Pomba Gira is a real experience that when experienced it is hard to deny.

Picture of Pomba Gira (Left) and Kijuana Njie (right).jpg

Pomba Gira is an energy that manifests in people.  She has many different looks, behaviors, and representations.  How you see Pomba Gira, how it manifests for you is totally up to you.  Dealing with these principles we can apply it to recent news in Sports.  Pomba Gira is the Goddess of the Crossroads, in the news she is showing up where sex and sports meet.    In the story of the Offensive Line Coach of the Miami Dolphins Chris Foerster, he reportedly was in a relationship with a woman from Las Vegas named Kijuana Njie.  Chris sent her some incriminating videos of him doing cocaine that she later posted on her social media subsequently leading to his resignation as a coach.  If you listen to her interview, she clearly states that she planned to expose him before he sent the video, but somehow he magically sends her the video without her doing any dirty work.  In this story, you see a man completely blinded by his lust and ruins his reputation behind it.  It’s not like he was a good man, he just appeared to be.  Kijuana Njie brought his negligent behavior to light.  So many people in our world have a perfect exterior and a dark and decrepit interior, its okay to see people for who they really are.  Pomba Gira is the energy that can shine a light on any injustices you may be facing if you ask her.  At the same time Pomba Gira fights for you, her avatars are the same people you forget about almost as a habit.  Realizing there are millions of people trapped in a world they don’t want to be in and they are exposed to the worst of people who simply want to use and exploit them for their own benefit.  Having some form of empathy for the women in the world on the front lines of injustice is key to understanding the energy of Pomba Gira.  It’s not about pity and turning your nose up, it is about gratitude for being there so maybe you didn’t have to.  It’s just a thought.

In conclusion,  the energy of Pomba Gira is available to us if we are interested in using her to crush opposition and create equality.  Pomba Gira is a spiritual resource and a solution to any trial and tribulation you may be experiencing.  Use her in wisdom, not in haste, do your research.  Ase.

Keeping it Conscious (Episode 2) Changing Your Mind Through Meditation & The Power of Laughter

To work magic effectively one must work himself into a trance. We can not reach our magical potential through the process of regular thinking. To be able to focus one’s mind and its ability to concentrate is primary.
You can reach a trance state by laying completely motionless. By laying completely still, not moving a muscle. Not letting your thoughts run off into long trains of thoughts, not panicking about if you left the stove on. Just simply observing yourself and relaxing your body. Whenever you have free time make it a practice to just stay motionless. Then the question arises, what to do with our mind? You begin to direct your mind to your breathing, focusing on the inhale and the exhale. Begin to slow your breathing down and breathe as needed.
The focus is sustained thought towards a particular object. So to do this you have to let go of a lot of shit. To properly reach the level of magick to alter your known universe you have to learn to detach yourself from the waking world. It doesn’t mean you lack empathy or are heartless, it means to properly and effectively do magick you have to focus a majority of your energy on one thing. So by meditating, lying still, and focusing on your breath may ease your mind, it most certainly won’t get you to your magical potential. In this journey, you are always required to go deeper and reach a higher level. No one is a master yet we all are masters. So the meditation is preparing you by establishing a trance state. The ability to focus on a particular sigil, or mantra within the mind with relentless pursuit will determine the results of our magical affair.
The goal is to transform our regular mind into a magical mind. We are in the process of completely restructuring our mind. Changing our regular mind to a magical consciousness is our Great Work (Magnum Opus). From one way of looking at the world to a completely different way. The art of using our will to restructure our mind.
Within the realms of consciousness, you realize the duality of this world, yet it doesn’t take you out of your flow. We know that joy/sorrow, up/down, good/bad, guilt/freedom, and quiet/loud are just two sides of the same pole. Whatever we experience throughout the duality of the world is just an indication and a realization. So our experience becomes different from others, we are learning to control OUR mind. We are shifting it from reactive to proactive. We recognize the world but we don’t care. Developing an objective point of view instead of a subjective point of view. Religion has us in a state of searching for one polarity over the other. Feel good over bad, the reason you are sad is that you are doing something wrong, you’re a sinner. When the reality is that the darkness is necessary to understand light, being cold helps you to appreciate and understand warmth. See it is only an indication and a realization of the opposite polarity.
We should investigate the emotion of laughter as a concept. The spirit is that of pure joy and amusement. To look at life through inquisition and introspection, we can always find the humor in things. Not with the regular human mind that was given to us, but with the cultivated conscious/magical mind, this is where we find the humor. All those illusions and tricks played on us, by us. There was never any wrong done to us by others, we have been in control the whole time. You are playing the joke on you, so if you don’t get the joke, then that is due to your lack of understanding of your own self. To laugh inwardly at all things is key.  The Laughing Buddha
Delete a habit in place for a new one. For example, stop smoking and replace it with working out. Let this practice be the barometer for your magical pursuit. Change things that you always wanted to change and replace them with things you always wanted to do. Creating an instable environment for chaos energy to take the form of miracles in your life.
