Asteria goddess of the stars Emily Blaivet
Asteria (asteroid 658) the starry one is the Titan goddess of prophecy and astrology. Her placement in the natal chart indicates ways and means of reading and divining by the stars. She is currently at 0 degrees Libra.
Finding our path to understanding, as I said in my last (full moon) post, is the crux of incredible growth. Hence, Jupiter/Sagittarius/9th house rulership.
What is found elevated in the natal chart is near high noon (10th house/Midheaven) aka public, visible – what is placed in the 9th, is particularly expansive. Likewise for the house where Jupiter resides as well as aspects Jupiter makes to other planets/points. Here we find exploration and infinite growth potential.
That said, I see my past lives (Sagittarius 12th) in my own natal chart. In addition, several psychics have told me that I have previously burned at the stake for being a witch. Considering what I am doing now, that is not at all surprising, now is it ?
Enter TIME magazine.
Enter biased, judgmental pseudo journalism proving a total lack of understanding.
How Witches on TV spell Trouble in Real Life.
There’s something about witches, it seems, that’s as compelling to us today as it was to the Puritans. But while the 1692 trials were a terrifying and tragic reality show, it’s easy to dismiss the modern fantasy of witchcraft as mere silliness. Not so fast, scholars say: When witchcraft makes a comeback, it’s often a sign of trouble in the real world. Stories of witches cast a captivating spell that both challenges and comforts us in those times — such as now.
Witches, like terrorists, “threaten to wipe out everything you believe in. If they could, they would overthrow your government, overturn your faith, and destroy your society,” Baker writes.
Equating witches with terrorists ?
Sensationalism at its best, thank you ever so much.
Terrorism is a red flag word choice, overused ad nauseum to incite fear and panic.
The herd is getting spooked because they should be. A few power hungry elite are crushing the options of the many.
Scapegoating is not only entirely misguided, but also in very poor taste.
Please do your homework.
1. Define Parameters.
That’s the first roadblock. What witch means to any number of people is likely as broad an answer as the number of people questioned.
Blanket terminology, please meet personal nuance.
2. Know what you are talking about.
See 1. First learn the basics – expand from that point. Explore outside your own navel, ask questions and honor paths that differ from your own.
3. Get off the high horse.
No one person knows everything. Allowing unlimited space for learning, growth and understanding is the true hallmark of intelligence.
Perhaps the real trouble is witches (your term) choose to understand personal and shared power within our universe. Personal responsibility and karmic repercussions are widely understood. They do their own thinking, see the big picture and walk their talk.
People who will not take the bit of propaganda are as a rule, feared because they are not easily swayed by those in power. They SEE the spin for what it is. Your truth is not necessarily their truth and they know it.
Knowledge is power that leads to understanding.
If that is destroying society, then we need a new society.
