Astrological Oracle Cards

I drew these lovely astrological cards for all of us.
Intent- where to focus to make the most of the energies present in all our charts.

Jupiter is turning direct
Uranus squares Pluto
Saturn and Pluto are in mutual reception.

Soon all planets will be in forward motion, so expect a whoosh of activity.
With work and planning – many improvements and progress can be made at this time.


On the Left we have MARS
Look to where your Mars lives, also to what other energies it aspects.  
Also look to your Aries house. 
Look to your First house.

On the right we have Scorpio.
Look to where your Scorpio lives, what it aspects.
Look to your Pluto, what it aspects.
Look to your eighth house.

Last, we have Gemini.
Look to your house of Gemini.
Look to Mercury and what it aspects.
Look to your third house.

Think doubles of this energy, or repeats.


If you tell me what it reveals in your life -
I will reveal what happened to me not one hour after this draw this morning.

Comical, really.
The cards are spot on as usual !


Fifth Element

Sacred Geometry Oracle – Greer

Quickie read for the energies of the LEO FULL MOON Saturn T-Square coming up on Saturday.  Intent is enlightenment, leading to most benevolent outcome for all of us.
Saturn : 29 The Dodecahedron
Saturn is the focal point of the T-Square meaning it will restrict, funnel and focus the energies of Moon in Leo vs.Sun Mercury in Aquarius.
The dodecahedron is the last of the 5 platonic solids.  This solid differs from the first four which relate to the material elements – fire, air, water, earth – dodecahedron corresponds to the 5th Element – the element of Spirit.

Energies descending from the spiritual realm, being brought into focus on the material realm. Transcendence through the breath of life.

Sun : 31 The Sphere
Projection of the circle into 3 dimensions, earth, sun, moon are symbols of the cosmos no beginning, no end.  A return to the end from the beginning.

Infinity; the limitless realities that have already taken shape, that only wait for your arrival.

Moon : 32 Squaring the Circle
The diameter or circumference of the circle can be found – but not ever both concurrently. The ratio between the diameter of a circle and its circumference is pi, an irrational number.  Circle represents the realm of spirit, while the square represents the realm of matter.  To draw spirit down or lift matter up is the central work of mystics and magicians the world over.

Harmony of Heaven and Earth; resulting in the achievement of perfection of human experience.
This is the most positive sign in this oracle.

Spirit card : Crux of the Sitch

28 : Pentagram  More here.
A magickal talisman that summons power.

Captain your ship well.
Use the force wisely.
You will know you are operating the force wisely when you are calm, passive, at peace.


blink, beat

Sacred Geometry Oracle
John Michael Greer

Before this reading, I was thinking of how Uranus skips steps. 
Mercury gets from A to C through B; Uranus skips straight to C.

This is why Uranus KNOWS but often can’t tell you why it knows.  It’s that mysterious skipped step that throws people when Uranians shoot genius from the hip.

It defies logic; yet is simultaneously, completely logical.

It is this skipped step in space / time that I am peering into with this reading.
Intent being clarity and most benevolent outcome for all my readers.

25 Discontinuous Proportion (reversed) Dependence
Your personal patterns are presently closely interrelating and connected to the patterns of others – some of which you are unaware of.

Many factors are involved which may not SEEM relevant, but ARE relevant.  Something small and seemingly unimportant is actually THE KEY to the solution.

This Uranus in a nutshell – seeing both sides, polarities – the MICRO and the MACRO – the FINITE and the INFINITE – all present in the glimmer of a nanosecond.  
Branches within branches within branches. . .the golden mean spirals inward / outward.



4 The Circle: Continuity
(spirit card, crux of the sitch)

Use what you’ve already got.  It is time to work within the boundaries you have set and nourish the growth living within them.  Tend to the patterns close to you, nourish them – the seeds that will lead to your heart’s desire are already planted and growing… now is the time to nurture your inner circle.

How wide are your circles ?  

Being strongly Uranian, I KNOW we ARE ALL CONNECTED energetically through The Force.

I think GLOBALLY, in terms of EARTHKIND and my SPIRITUALITY is INFINITE, not caged into a ‘religion’.

That said, I choose my inner circle, be you near or far.  

Uranians can find you at any distance – your energetic signature is entirely unique.
We can intuitively connect in the blink of an eye; in the beat of a heart.

Those I LOVE – you KNOW who you are.
Near or far, you are IN.


Chaos / Cosmos

Book of Doors Divination

Quickie read for Uranus station direct with intent of clarity bringing most benevolent outcome for all my readers.

I wanted to get a handle on the polarities, loosely – so what comes up may be of significant to two areas of your life in any way – that I leave up to you.
Spirit card is the fulcrum.

Aakhut: 5 Nefertum : Family of Fire
Uranus is in Aries – that’s fire, and 5 represents changes.
The joy of realization, intuitive understanding, lotus blooming from the mud.  
Sun rising from darkness, as the ka rises from the body of the dead.  Think of the Hindu sahasrara chakra or thousand petaled lotus – the center of cosmic consciousness and spiritual illumination.

Pet: 2 Shen Ur : Family of Heaven
Uranus rules angels and wishes – 2 is a number of choice, partnership and polarity.
Harmony restored, integration and wholeness.
I love this !
As Chaos represents disorder and dissolution, so Cosmos represents the harmonic order of creation and time.  Both are realms of infinite subtlety, coexisting and interpenetrating each other.


Spirit Card

Aah: 5 Tehuti : Family of the Moon
New Moon in Sagittarius opens up far-reaching visionary portals prior to Uranus stationing direct !
Success in writing, science, occult knowledge and mediation.
Tehuti was Thoth: “Master of Divine Words and Sacred writings”.  Tehuti is divine intelligence, the universal mind [SEE SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON]  filled with powers of speech and creation.

All the best for positive changes -

Metamorph Moon

Two card draw for global eclipse energies : Solar / Lunar.
Intent; clarity, most benevolent outcome for all readers.
First imagine you are in an ancient stone castle standing before a rough timber door.  You place your hand on it, push it open, hearing the iron hinge squeak.   Inside the candlelit room you find an enormous dining table big enough for 30 laden with delicacies – place setting for ONE.

You walk up to the table and examine the offering, the meal prepared for you.

What do you see ?
Ever thought about it ?

What if I told you that it was laden with primarily leafy green vegetables ?
Maybe it is 3/4 filled with fluffy desserts, or what if the entire spread was porterhouse steak and potatoes….?

Mine is laden with mostly porterhouse steak – thick, chewy, hard to digest – and something had to die for me to get it.  Welcome to the world of Scorpio / Pluto.
Mind you, there are a couple of plates of vegetables, and dark chocolate mousse for dessert, but I am mostly porterhouse steak.  

Think of your natal aspects in this way.  Some have a sextile to Pluto (eh, an opportunity) some have a trine (energy regenerates), some have a square (tremendous inner metamorphosis – you may or may not be aware of)  and some have a conjunction which means everything the neighbor planet does has Pluto right beside it atomic energy AMPING IT UP 24/8.  Sounds intense, yah ?  Well, IT IS.

Everyone is getting a taste of it now with all the Scorp swampy undertow energy murking and lurking around.  Those of us that already have this Scorp energy are even more intense than usual – we have always been catalysts – but now we feel driven to metamorphosis like never before.  We are taking you with us for the ride too – rebirth into a more positive phase is imminent.

Life, death, rebirth.  
It is the way.  
To be born is to die also.

::: Energy is an exchange – if we are in contact in any way – I change and so do you ::::

5 Duat : Ammit : Solar eclipse in Scorpio : A trial of integrity.  Great danger.  Courage is needed to overcome.

6 Nef : Family of Wind : Lunar Eclipse Gemini : Danger of misuse of primal power, sexual energies.  Wise use of The Force.  Magical protection or protection of marriage or both.

8 Ahh : Family of moon : Kematef : Spirit card, the Crux of the sitch : Immortality.  Something has served its time, is no longer necessary – or the return of something thought gone.  The endless process of life, death and renewal.  Metamorphosis.

You are getting this draw is very Pluto in Capricorn in mutual reception with Saturn in Scorpio, yes..?

Restraint – Judicious use of Power.  


mercurious myst

Mercury into Sagittarius
Monday October 29
1:18am CST, USA

Mercury into mutable Sagittarius fire, folks.  Duality and change-ups naturally associated with Mercury will be kicked up a notch or two in a mutable sign.

Mutable signs indicate changes, adaptability ::: they are the go-betweens, the social set ::: passing the baton from the outgoing Cardinals to the stable Fixed signs.

This is worth noting as Mercury stations retrograde on Election Day in the US.

Mercury Stations Retrograde 
Tuesday November 6
5:04pm CST, USA

Purchases of large ticket items, signing contracts, making deals are all ill-advised during Mercury retrograde, and most certainly on the days surrounding station when the energetic shift in trickster Mercurial energies is more strongly felt.

Mercury rules counting, calculations, perception and logic
Neptune rules voting (secret ballots), fraud, deception and mysterious events.

The rockstar politico circus is coming to town – and the Trickster is Ringmaster.

Two communication signs, Gemini (Mercury rules) and Sagittarius are juggling compromise.

Virgo (Mercury rules) and Pisces are the lucky signs ripping up the Mercurial obstacle course, making hard decisions.

Virgos require abacus perfection.
Pisces, well the slippery fishes are …ummm a bit nebulous on a good day.

This is going to be an interesting election – I’ll guarantee you that.
Is The Count still on the Sesame St. payroll – may wanna fetch ‘im.
We may need his fingers, toes and little number friends.

A silent prayer for our nation, if you please.
Our election is not the only reason why, either…


Neptune Stations Direct
0 22′ Pisces
November 11
1:52am CST, USA

Stations of slow moving outer planets are felt for weeks in advance - particularly if that planet is prominent in your natal chart.  In the US Sibley chart, 9th house Virgo Neptune is at 22 degrees (trine 2nd house Capricorn Pluto Rx) putting it in a sextile (opportunity) to the upcoming solar eclipse in Scorpio 21 56′.

Fixed houses are building.
Long-term values and ideas meet the material (Toro), emotional (Scorpio) and intellectual (Aquarius) plane – fixed signs are brick-laying the road to create a new life (Leo is Sun – ruled = life).

Eclipse energies draw out and materialize the emotional onto the physical plane while intellectual Aquarius must do the hardest work - brainstorm creative solutions in tandem with Leo, our NEW LIFE.

Toro / Scorpio
::: what’s mine and what’s ours :::
 ::: what I want and what we desire :::
Venus (balanced) and Pluto (transformation)

Toro / Scorpio houses are succeedant ::: emotional :::
emotions are water
we have Neptune stationing direct in 15 days

Hurricane Sandy

Neptunian water is intuitive, psychic and it delves deep into memory.

The water signs signal ENDINGS: the womb and the tomb (Cancer), the sexual act, death, and the release of life as we know it (Scorpio), release and re-union with the cosmic universal energy (Pisces).

I do not mean this literally – instead I am speaking metaphorically.
The Macro / Micro universe are having a soulful cry over what has been lost.
This Pluto Uranus square is CHANGING EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.
This hurricane is [on a macro level] clearing the energies of that portion of the US.
The US capitol is out there, among other things … just a thought.
About Neptune…
Strange thing is… months ago I was thinking and wondering what this reversal of Neptune towards Aquarius would bring for me.  I heard a little voice say : you forgot something, you have to go back and get it. 
I wrote that phrase here at GMA in scopes or somewhere without really knowing what it meant or what it was or – anything. 

Ahhh – you know, the joys of Neptunian faerie dustings… we’ve just learned to go with it baby… it’ll all make sense someday….it felt right.
Guess what.
I was right.  I went back to get something I forgot…or rather, someONE.  Didn’t see him comin’…nope, not even close.  …hmmMmm…

SoOo then I am thinking I got the micro bit figured out – what did the Macro forget and go back for…?

The Psychic Tarot

New Beginnings : Zero : 
It is the void and nirvana :: the doorway, a portal.  It is spirituality, divine intuition, faith in the unseen.  It is unlimited possibilities and a fresh emotional start.
Zero is Pluto ruled indicating REBIRTH. 

Neptune Rx opposite Leo was a gestation of NEW LIFE to be born at direct station.
Neptune Rx applying to Aquarius is KNOWING our personal / collective thoughts [Neptune square Gemini the lower mind and Sagittarius: the higher mind] 
WILL CREATE our physical world via the electrical grid we all share Micro / Macro.

Spirit Card: 7:
Seven is ruled by Uranus: Seven indicates highly creative problem solving.  Freedom, rebellion, polarites, intuition, invention, eccentrics and ELECTRICITY.
The crown chakra rules the central nervous system and cerebral cortex.

The human heart is Electric, our hearts are collectively connected through the Earth’s Electrical Grid.

We are co-creators on the micro / macro scale with the energetic spirit of the ALL ONE. The electrical current of life is charging through us, our DNA, the earth, the sky, the universe, CONNECTING ALL OF US TO ONE ANOTHER.
I know what I believe the macro went back for, and I am so happy we did.

Total Solar Eclipse

New Moon in Libra
Moon is void of course until it enters Scorpio at 7:06pm this evening CST, USA

Full Moon in Taurus
Monday October 29, 2:49pm CST, USA

New Moon signals a time of new beginnings; void moons a time of contemplation and insight.  

This Libra New Moon delivered me off the scale fluctuation of feelings, restoration of balance using the sword of truth . . . rapid-fire insights were incoming from all quarters.

Did you feel a shake up in your Libra house ?

Libra is my MC, Moon passed over my Merc on the way to the new phase – so women, public and my thoughts and feelings surrounding relationships, balance and reciprocation were either folding themselves up for good, or spreading their wings to fly like paper cranes all around me.

Beautiful Venus does love her mirrors.

When I drew the Mirror card in the Wild Wood Tarot it perfectly described my fluctuating thoughts, feelings, and perceptions revolving around status, power, fame and friendship during this moon phase.

She also describes qualities of both luminaries meeting in the sign of balance and fairness – the house of others.

Unlike the Hooded Man who chooses solitude, the Mirror indicates being forced to surrender personal will, forced to be open to the ways of the universe, forced to quietly, patiently await for insights to reveal themselves as they will.
The Mirror sees both sides, she is uniquely attuned to both the inner and outer realms.
She is aligned with the Hangman, sacrifice, insight, Odin and the runic alphabet.
The Mirror is the Lady of the Lake, keeper of the magikcal sword, Excalibur.

Swords represent AIR: thought, insight, clarity, truth and justice.  Very Libra.

The mirror brings gifts of emotional growth, clarity of purpose, the bare truth of subconscious made manifest in waking life.  She reflects a wounding, the keen instincts and insights that come from passing through the dangers of the shadow world where warriors seek enlightenment.  She is dual, polarity and reveals a complete shift in awareness.

Is this not true of all relationships ?

What was one (Sun), now becomes two (Moon), the shift in balance is ongoing thereafter.  Diplomacy and compromise, bonds and contracts, love and war are also present in the world of Libra, the world of two, the world of mirrors. (First house Aries – ME opposes seventh house Libra YOU.)  Oppositions often play themselves out in the form of projection / reflection. 

Libra New Moon (conjunct Sun – all new moons are conjunct Sun) is particularly geared for understanding developing relationships and creatively loving the seed of willpower that lies deep within ourselves.

Although every moment holds the promise of change, New Moons accentuate this promise, they urge us forward in the process by holding up the mirror to ourselves.

During New Moons we (conscious – solar / subconscious – lunar) are side by side looking into the mirror : two FEELS more like ONE.  Instinct and will are a team, setting intentions for growth during the coming lunar cycle.

New Moons force us to grow into the knowledge of the next full moon.

During Full Moons two FEELS more like TWO, because we are at odds with the other side of ourselves, at odds with the reflection, at odds with the OTHER.  (Full Moons are always opposite Sun) Instinct and will are in peace talks, they are AWARE of their separateness.  Understanding, illumination and growth is at a peak – knowledge courses in from all sectors.

The Full lunar orb reflects / mirrors the rays of the solar force.
Instinct and willpower are eyeball to eyeball.
Subconscious self SEES the conscious self SEES the subconscious self.
Our creations are locked and loaded – visible.
Full Moon illumination – new moon intentions – are manifest, realized.

One becomes Two.
Choice is inevitable.
Everything changes.
I choose the way of the Jedi.
I will use The FORCE for defense only.
I choose balance.
I choose peace.
I choose love.

May the Force be with you.
amin mela lle.

While mowing the yard (Mars blade) ideas (quintiles Uranus in 9) were popping like corn with every step…  Everyone swirling around with us on our big blue ball is experiencing Aries Uranus square Pluto in Capricorn.

What houses they fall in determine your personal experience.  

(Look at your chart and go to the houses drop down for more on house rulerships – the square brings dynamic tension you need to solve between the two houses/planetary energies)

Capricorn happens to be my ASC so everything I AM is undergoing metamorphosis.  This dark – new moon phase has brought me so much to process again.  There is a reason there are 7 exact hits of this square – there is much to process.  Seven is a spiritual number, philosophical and intuitive.

Have you thought that perhaps these 7 squares are collectively purging us of our fears..? 

Saturn is fear and Pluto is mining – digging deep to give the festering wounds inside fresh air so we may heal and grow.  Think about that for a minute – fear – then look to your Capricorn house and your natal Saturn.

I have Saturn Rx in Aries 3.  Fear of being unable to communicate effectively.  (Though that is not my greatest fear, not even close.)

Sibley chart for the US puts Saturn in Libra 10 in hard aspect to Sun, Mercury and Jupiter.  Capricorn on the 2nd house.  Fear of not being seen as/ being top of the world power, perhaps ?


Among other things, I read tarot and oracle decks to help me avoid the land mines hidden on the journey through life.  I am very good at it, have been reading since I was a teenager.

Ask your decks for insight on the squares and how they affect you.

This is my tarot/ natal chart squares mystery unraveled for me…

Weeks ago, King of Wands started showing up – I was thinking King of Wands, King of Wands, who the heck is KofW ?  No one anywhere near me was King of Wands material, then . . . aha so you’re King of Wands !  Okie- dokie.  Got it.
For the record – he’s not west coast US. He’s not from across the pond either.

King of Wands is me.
me Me ME ! 

(haha yes, Matrix)  What made me think of it this way is I was doing a spread revolving around a woman I met this summer (?).  She showed up as King of Pents – in the situation, Queen wouldn’t have garnered as much attention as KING of Pents did.  She has a grand earth trine, is the main parental figure, is very strong and very steady, it fit.

This changed my thoughts on King of Wands…sOoo all this time, perhaps King of Wands is me becoming re-aquainted with my first house self  via : Pluto in Capricorn re-vision of I AM Persona/s.  My Sagittarius Mars (Mars rules 1st) and this warrior blazing into the fray wielding the philosophical sword part of myself needed recognition and was by god/goddess rightfully claiming it. 

I am finding balance (Libra is my MC, Venus squares Neptuner) between the polarities (Uranus) of myself (Uranus conjuncts Sun – the conscious self) through my actions (Mars) of writing (Sag Mars trines Saturn in 3rd).
What has Pluto been uncovering for you ?
What ideas has Uranus been jolting you with ?
I would love to hear your insights too…!
…oh, and one more thing…hello King of Swords, now who could you be ?  lol !

may your dark mysteries find enlightenment as well…


Book of Doors

Quickie one card reading (spirit card on the right) : intent is clarity regarding events surrounding upcoming Uranus / Pluto square, leading to highest most benevolent outcome for all of us.

I pulled a couple of fortunes too, they are in synchronization – groovy !
Act on those new ideas you are generating
Complete success in all undertakings

AAH: Family of the Moon
 MUT:  Mother.  Selfless love. (mut: the mouth, the uterus) Gestation – physical, mental or spiritual.  She is two-fold, North – South; Lady of the Two Lands. 

Her wings encompass the four directions, she contains both female and male energies, she births the twin energies of Sirius into manifestation.  Two vultures adorn her, they are sacred symbols of disintegration and regeneration. The male figures represent her generative qualities; the female and male energies as a whole are infinitely fertile and nourishing.  She holds the ankh and the papyrus scepter (uadj) symbolizing new growth, expansion and life energies.

Spirit card, crux of the matter
An expression of the absolute. 

Historically a standard or banner which marks a place of divinity.  They are similar to Tibetan prayer flags, which subtly emit the etheric ‘sound’ of prayers on the wind.  Sigils created with prayers develop formidable psychic powers on their own – when on banners, the symbols are offerings taken by the ‘spirit of the wind’ to a higher power, the ‘invisibles’.   The fabric itself is warp and weft – symbolizing polarities and cosmic coordination.  Neter Neturu is the concept of ALL ONE.


Awesome card draw for this square – for Uranus is polarites, the higher octave of Mercury – AIR.  Uranus knows what it knows without speech or written word, it is brainwaves plugged into the universal electrical field – it is ALL ONE in operation.

Personally, I am not gathering any moss lately, you ?  I am heave – ho-ing the past like mad and it feels great !  The possibilities seem endless, and the Neter Neteru accentuates this message : Anything is Possible, Anything Can Be Done.

Gestation during Dark Virgo Moon, sounds fab !
Moon comes to trine Pluto before New Moon releasing some more emo garbage on the way to fresh new beginnings – YaY !

I love how this reading is both polarities & nebulous advice to create our own future and roll with the unforseen changes.

I have Moon exalted in Toro, in 4 trine Pluto.  Creative gestation leading to positive regeneration is my Ace in the hole for too much Neptune square.  Find your ace in the hole and work it to your advantage !

Incubate your dark moon dreams – then give birth to them on or after New Moon (see link above) and they will grow strong with the growth of the Moon !

As anyone with Uranus / Pluto prominent can tell you – put yer cleats on and bob and weave baby ~>  Rapid – fire changes are imminent.

blessed be
