Heads UP for Libra Mars conjunct North Node as we power forward into Full Capricorn Moon.  I absolutely love that Empress came upI asked what will help up us collectively sugarfoot through the tricky bits. The abrupt energies of Shaman square Wizard (Uranus square Pluto), a cardinal grand cross and a constricted (detriment) Full Moon in Capricon is offset by a lovely trine between Mars/NNode and Mercury/Venus in flexible Gemini.

I for one, have taken a powder here and there for the last few because of recurring fever that 5 ibuprofen won’t even dent.  Mars/North Node are riding my Mercury, so I want to write, but decided maybe taking a day off from job #2 (GMA) would be deserved, since I am not getting vacation from job #1.  So yeah, Empress – the Nurturer, the Great Mother, the compassionate – I am feeling her with full moon culminating in my first house of self.

In foil to High Priestess mother archetype who is the remote/void/ocean – the Empress is warm/abundant/giving.  Fascinating that the 3rd letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Gimel which means camel, who showed up two posts ago as llama (camelid) in Peru.
Saturn again, rules Capricorn.

So onto camel totem:
Ted Andrews says of camel: replenishment; surviving during parched times and rough journeys.  Camel shows us what we are able to accomplish and succeed in environments that often amaze others and ourselves.
Drink water.  

Also camel is a nod to full moon with Pluto –  reserves of power – camel’s fatty humps store hydrogen atoms which when combined with oxygen form water for their body tissues. Camels take nano naps, so check sleep rituals + take power sleeps.

They have a high level of endorphins, so camels have a natural high – ever seen Capricorns go  from cool, poised, reserved to downright silly in a nanosecond ? 
Goofy goaty goats here. 

Keep in mind – Play is just as important as work !

My mother is a Capricorn, actually both my folks are Cap Suns/Scorp Moons/Mars 7 – everybody was waving a shiny scepter, lol.  I am familiar with power struggles coming from all sides, but often the hardest ones for me to detect are the ones coming from the inside – Saturn Rx in Aries here, Capricorn rising.
Working on it !  Which is what Capricorn is all about, yah ?  Stay positive, keep going, work hard – but also remember to Play hard !

So back to The Empress, she is Mother to all creation, the bridge (Saturn rules) from spirit to matter – she is the Great Manifestor.  She helps put all that work into perspective, yes ? – one foot in front of the other, carpe diem !
She is mercy, diversity and grace through troubled times.  She shines a light in dark places when all other lights go out, she delivers clarity, love and kindness to any and all matters.

Let love lead the way. . .

Lastly, the Hebrew translation of Eve is Havah “to live”, which is 3/4 of the Tetragrammaton, YHVH (name of God).  HYH or Hayah “to exist’ completes the circle, is part of the name God identifies himself with to Moses: Ehyeh asher ehyeh, I AM THAT I AM.  

Ultra Mars !  Primo Destiny !
Take the best of what has been (your skills) and transform them into what is yet to be (build upon them with NEW skills).
Boldly go where no one has gone before !

Saturn rules this full moon, and finds exaltation in fair, harmonious Libra.
Nurture yourself and others in balance – know your power, stay strong, remain focused on fulfilling your destiny while also being kind.

Note : Mars/North Node will push for new uncomfortable territory – that’s the point, you will know it because it is hard, unfamiliar.

peace & sugarfeet

There is another pic I won’t post of Knight grabbing player Neil Reed’s throat.  In the same article, reports of Knight choking and punching sports information director, Kit Klingelhofer, in the 1970’s over a news release that upset the coach.

Whoa.  Mercury (communication) in Scorpio (intense power) conjunct ASC (1st house is your style) opposition rebellious Uranus in the 7th (relationships with others).  Jupiter (wants to expand) tightly conjunct Saturn (wants to constrict) in the sign of the bull.   Not to mention some serious squares to Moon (emotions) and Mars quincunx (stressful adjustment) Saturn /Jupiter and semi-square (friction) that radical Uranus.   eep.
I’ll be at home watching from the couch, thanks.

Virgo in the 10th (career) and hey, let’s face it…Virgos are perfectionists.

Legendary coach…here’s the wiki blurb:
Among his greatest achievements are multiple NCAA and NIT championships, but he has had international success as well. In 1979, he took the U.S. Pan American team to a gold medal in Puerto Rico. Knight is known for an almost uncanny ability to extract the full potential from his players, and he is proud of their high graduation rate. He is his own man, with high principles, expectations and demands. Not afraid of controversy, he often uses profanity to make his point and exercises an impressive temper. He has a great ability to teach young men both the game of basketball and the game of life, and in May 1991, he was inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame.
