Leo heart- Aquarius nervous system axis = electrical energies.

Color is the language of Energy

Full Moon – Sun opposition falls across Fixed signs, likely dredging up ye olde angsty issues that need to be resolved.
Fixed signs see with one perspective, theirs.

They are extremely (slow) reliable, some would say stubborn.

Fixed signs = Idea energy concentrated persistently until it is solidified into form. 

Leo and Aquarius (as well as Taurus and Scorpio) are fixed signs.
Any planets therein in hard aspect are working out deep rooted, past life issues ingrained over several lifetimes.

Fixed squares = inner turmoil rolling under the surface, forcing personal growth.
Fixed oppositions = other people deliver lessons, forcing compromise, team growth.
Fixed conjunctions = test of power, the use of power

How to unravel the fixed energies, undo the past karma ? 
Give up self-will.

Tame the desires of the mental and emotional body before they are allowed to crystallize.  Building and stability – while fine qualities – when misused become fixation, obsession, the closed door, the energy block.

A mountain of desire mineMineMINE makes it harder to access the spiritual self.
Spirit flows and shares – the energy is exchanged.

gung HO goof awhile


So I am driving along on my way to work laughing at the state of things in general. 
Basically, life being extremely difficult even though I have more tools at my disposal NOW than EVER.
Still struggling – wtf ?!
Then I am thinking what’s your malfunction, honey ?

Dismantle your Bomb.
It can’t be THAT hard.
Then I started thinking and cracked myself up…

Cardinals are all gung HO to get what they want – but it is more the striving for it than the actual getting of it.  Once they have it …y a w n… boring ! 
Where’s the next New Shiny Goal ?!

Fixed wants their wants – no, NEEDS – their Wants satisfied NOW and you had better hurry the FU about it !  They Want – NEED it – How they like it When they like it – snap !  If the fixed aren’t happy – ain’t nobody happy.  Capiche ?!  lol
* note: btw, that’s been working for me like a charm so far – HA ! NOT !

Mutables are easily distracted by shiny objects, titillating conversation, they turn on a dime, get all twisty & bendy and love having their fingers in everybody’s pies.  Jack ‘n’ Jill of all trades actually loves juggling a bazillion balls and being hard to pin down.

Since we all have a conglomeration of these energies working in our charts, via signs and planets in them, we are in tension with ourselves – always – in some form or another we are growing and learning from the first to the last breath and beyond. . .

Some folks have their natal aligned with the natural chart (Aries is on the first, Taurus is on the second, etc..) which gives them an extra push of being natally aligned with the natural energies of the seasons & signs.

Other luckies like me have energies at odds right off the bat.  Slow – ass Capricorn on the first house of Gung HO Aries, for example.  So I am layin’ tread, burnin’ rubber at the starting line.  To kick me when I’m down, I also have Saturn (rules Cap) IN ARIES going backwards.  That’s a fun one, trust me. heh.

Consider this…we always, Always, ALWAYS have an out somewhere. 

Cap on first house is Cardinal twice over, but my Aries lands on the mutable 3rd house along with Saturn Rx.  So I do get to juggle the energies a bit.  Frustration and anger blows over when I distract myself with kaleidoscope eye candy, goof awhile – then I can reapply force more intelligently.

Follow this example in your chart and see where you can juggle, apply, or dig into your energies in order to work them to your advantage.

…the opener…

The Book of Doors Divination Deck

Quick 3 card draw for clarity for all my readers, with the goal being insight to trigger the highest positive good of all. 

Card on the left – Scorpio Full Moon
Card on the right – Taurus Sun
Card below – the union of opposites between the two.  The Compromise.

Moon and Sun are in the Family of Duat
What is below is as that which is above.
“What is below” is the Duat, the darkest reflection of heaven and the site of death and dissolution.
::: It corresponds to the embalming process which is an alchemical ‘fixing’, (Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs) and also the stomach (Moon rules) through fermentation and the digestive process.  The transformation of matter through decay. :::

Scorpio Full Moon: 6 Amenta
Adventure into the unknown, the darkest part of the self.   Initiative, independence and self-reliance.  It is the sunset souls must pass through to reach the coming dawn at sunrise.  “The Hidden Place”, becoming familiar with the realm of the dead while still living, knowledge of the mysteries, vision quest.

Taurus Sun: 1 Sokar
The darkest part of the Duat, a time of testing, inertia and darkness.  The seed of a new life has been planted.  This dark night of the soul serves to bring orientation.  It is the omphalos, or navel (Venus rules) – akin to the Northern celestial hemisphere (the Nadir, or midnight in the natal- Moon rules).  It is a point symbolizing meridians and parallels, a point of nourishment between consecutive phases and different states of being.

The Union of Opposites

The Family of Fire
Aakhut: 1 Ptah
The act of creation !   The “Father / Mother of beginnings, the creator of the eggs of the Sun and the Moon”, the sculptor, the opener of doors.  Craftspeople, builders using the primordial sacred fire of living energy.  Materializing metaphysical principles with every sound and heartbeat. Celestial and terrestrial creation in accordance with the cosmic law. (Maat)

Last Card, bottom of the deck
Message from Spirit Realm (+bonus fortune !)
Rutilated Quartz is energetic, protective, weaves worlds together

The Eight Primordials
Tepi – Aui – Un 2: Nut (Night)

Powerful protection on the path to transcending previous limitations.  Being aware of our place of being in the vast cosmic seas.   I exist, I am vital.
Unity and the multiplication of form through dynamic energy, originally manifested as the Milky Way. ( Moon Moon and More Moon: Milky way, or via lactea means Milky Circle) The Mother Goddess, the beginning and the end – creation –  the resolution of all duality.
SoOo the wrap-up:
Full Moon brings the ‘alchemical fixing’ of Scorpio and Taurus energies…
Stable, reliable Fixed signs build, finish and create.
They are the link between the gung-ho Cardinals and the fluctuating Mutables.

We are protected, nourished in our vision quest (Venus trine Saturn Rx in Libra) to find balance spiritually (Neptune trine Saturn Rx), and intellectually (Venus in Gemini trine Saturn Rx in Libra – both Air, or intellect) while we brainstorm our past and future actions on earth with others. (Mercury in Aries opposite Saturn Rx in Libra; Mars in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces.)


one-ring circus

This is a spread I call Cardinal. Fixed, Mutable.
(I made it up on the spot.)

Three cards above in that order, to represent what we ( all my readers ) need to keep in mind as we move forward.

What are the energies we are working with…?
How do we best work with them ?

The card below is the spirit card – the bottom of things, what may not be apparent, but is the crux of the situation.

The Deck I am drawing from is The Enchanted Map Tarot.

52 : Cardinal : Uranus, Venus in Aries: Pluto in Capricorn
Impact, personal growth, shift in perspective -growing into the best person you can be !

7: Fixed : Jupiter in Taurus
New opportunities, new territories – trust that you are both path finder and path maker

24 :  Mutable : everything else lol.  North Node in Sagittarius, Neptune, Sun, Chiron, Moon, Mercury in Pisces
Stop, look & listen.  Time to Observe.  Clarity will come later.  Spirit has a plan for you.

Spirit Card : 15 : Independence is key, self – confidence, wisdom and competence give you a healthy perspective on yourself and others.  Firm boundaries.


laying your ley lines

eyedee by perrelet, deviant art

I have been reading a book The Infinite Possibilities of a Balanced Brain: Limitless You by Lee Gerdes.  I have not finished it, as I am queen of the multi-task: I am working, writing, listening to astrology metaphysical shows while I clean, and reading several books all at once.  Usually every book is worth at least one gem, if you’re lucky you get a Fleetwood Mac Rumors.

This book reminded me of one of my therapy sessions.  Jane, (wonderful lady !) my therapist, encouraged me to journal my experiences.  I would have none of that – I lived it once, why on Earth would I want to document  the ugly hell ?  Now some of you may find journaling helpful to process it, whatever works for you to help you feel better.

This is how I see it… ( and what the book above reinforced )
Imagine the trail of your thoughts – do you always go the same route – are you depressed or angry or disappointed in yourself ?
How many times a day do you think (or worse, yet – say aloud) you are stupid, worthless or a failure ?

fyi: My chart ruler is Saturn (restriction) going backwards (Rx) and in it’s fall (in Aries), so I am very familiar with this scenario.
 I have Sun (ego, spirit) conjunct Uranus/ Pluto (mistakes, constant ego hits) right up near the midheaven in Virgo where everyone, and I do mean everyone can see it.  In Virgo no less, the sign that craves perfection, sigh.  Mistakes horrify me, I am familiar with the feeling of failure, but I do not give up.  Ever.   I RISE UP.   Folks, meet the curse/blessing of Plutonian power.

Basically, when these negative thoughts are roads travelled over and over and over again, they are like ley lines in your brain, places you give your attention to – they gain power  through repeated reinforcement.  Choose carefully what you think and say to yourself in your mind’s eye.  To what end will you direct your infinite power, your life force, your chi ?  Be Mindful.

Here is your immediate help.  ~> Train your thoughts.

When a negative thought pops up – recognize it – and replace it with a good one.  If you feel your mind twirling in the quiet moments, start with the letter A and go through the entire alphabet choosing a positive word to describe yourself for each letter.

Then do it AGAIN.
It works, trust me.

Calm the monkey mind – pick birds, or artists or songs, star clusters, whatever ! – for each letter – just stay positive, okay…?!

Do you have fixed squares in your natal chart ?  Squares represent inner conflict.  The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius – fixed is just what it sounds like – immovable, stuck, rooted.  Any squares in these signs indicate deeply ingrained patterns that have become fixed over several lifetimes.

Fixed squares are self-will given free rein.

Co-operation and the ability to work harmoniously with others must be cultivated or the body will be the end terminal for difficulties.  The inner conflict on the mental plane will manifest outwardly and cause illness in the physical body.
I speak from personal experience, I was mentally and physically sick for a very long time until I finally got a clue.  I have fixed squares from Leo on the 8th to Scorpio on the 11th, both are fixed signs rooted in fixed houses.

When you vibrate to the highest level of energy mentally, you will manifest and attract magnetically the highest vibrations physically as well.  You will attract people and situations that are in synchronization with what you are vibrating personally.

What follows is a quickie planetary energy guide :
High <-> Low

Sun:  generosity, hope——————-pride, conceit
Moon:  sensitivity, caring—————fickle, weakness
Mercury:  ideas, learning—————-gossipy, worry
Venus:  love, art, beauty——————vanity, laziness, vulgarity
Mars:  energetic, enthusiasm————aggravate, lust, anger
Jupiter:  faith, optimism—————-overconfidence, extravagance
Saturn:  self-discipline, faithfulness—-pessimism, severity
Uranus:  individuality, curious———-unreliable, desertion
Neptune:  inspiration, spirituality——–deception, illusion, delusion
Pluto:  inner power, rebirth—————-obsession, helplessness

From every power that holds the world in chains, man frees himself when self-control he gains.

Venus (love) is coming to conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer) and it took me what seemed like forever to heal myself, but I did.  Now, hopefully, I can help heal you as well.  If you want your natal chart, follow the link on the right – astrodienst – and enter your birth information, if you get lost or have questions, comments are welcome.

An Eclipse prayer, a Neptune direct & going home prayer ~
guitars, mystics, prophets, spiritual healing and the cosmos…

Neptune is illusion, fog and dreams, the ocean ~ fluctuation on a grand scale.

She has been getting zapped in a fixed electrical sign since August 24th, 1998.
Neptune will, at long last, enter Pisces, the sign she rules, on February 3, 2012.

blessed be

South Node indicates the past life, or the road previously travelled.
It is called Ketu- the dragon’s tail- and is likened to a valley.

North Node is the trail we are currently blazing in this life.
It is called Rahu- the dragon’s head- and is likened to a peak.

North Node at the time of last nights eclipse was in the 4th house indicating
Karmic Balancing.

North Node placed in the 4th house means the energy is used to do whatever is needed and ordered by the other trinity of nodal point groups.  The 4th, 8th, and 12th houses are the Trinity of Psychicism.

The Trinity of Life.
North Node in 1st, 5th or 9th is the redistribution network, intellectual and creative growth.

The Trinity of Wealth.
North Node in 2nd, 6th, or 10th is responsible for material structures on the material plane. 

The Trinity of Association.
North Node in 3rd, 7th, or 11th is responsible for maintaining peace and harmony in society.

Mine is in Aries, 4th. Polarities girl learns a life of balance, not too surprising.

With the coming of the new moon in generous Leo, I have a gift for you…a free tarot reading !

Activated for my readers at whatever time you choose to read it.  Its purpose being to align us all with the highest good energies for all earthkind~ I was asking for directions; the best path to take for the future good of all, as seen through the lens of astrological energies.

Cardinal= activity, where the action is, self-starters & go-getters
Fixed= stable, building from ideas of cardinals, desires and emotions
Mutable= adaptable, changing, people people, the glue between the two


(teacher card/bottom of things)

2 of pentacles (earth, material) in the cardinal position represents the active form of choosing what we value, the act of choosing goals

6 of cups (water, emotions) in the fixed position represents building solid foundations; good relationships with self and others through generosity and kindness

Ace of swords (air, communication) in the mutable position represents logic, and successfully adapting between material and emotional needs

Hangman as teacher card represents the need to see issues from another perspective, slow down and take stock of what you have, need or want.  He can also represent sacrifice for the higher good.

(Hangman is the card of Anglo-Saxon god, Woden / Odin who hung from the world tree, Yggdrasil, for nine days to gain insight which resulted in the Runic alphabet.)
What the entire spread vibes to me is the shedding of goals that do not suit the present situation.  If it’s not working for you, change goals.
The numerology of this spread is a total of 3= creation + growth.
All the best~
