Beautiful image, yes ?
Perfect aerodynamics, concentration and what a fantastic angle for the black mask.  Click the link above for much more photography for Neptunian folks. 

Animal intuitive spoke to me tonight to usher in transiting Mercury (pets, small animals) nearly on Venus in Aquarius (birds, flight).  First thing – a flock of birds surrounds me.
Not entirely surprising as I am a Sun conjunct Uranus (rules Aquarius) girl.  I like birds, just posted a cool porcelain artist over on my tumblr an hour or so before the call.

Cardinals were the most vocal messengers of all the flock.
Cardinal totem: They don’t migrate, 12 month season, tap it anytime.  Red. (more below)  They whistle, sing – listen.  A mated pair shares song phrases, but the female may sing a longer and slightly more complex song than the male – working together. In spring and summer, both males and females are fiercely territorial and will aggressively protect what is theirs.  More here.

Fixed signs: Taurus (2nd), Leo (5th), Scorpio (8th), Aquarius (11th)
These houses/signs are fixed aka steadfast, but tough aspects to/from means inner conflict ingrained…deeply ingrained.  One might say aggressively protective.
More here.

These birds are named for the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, with their bright red robes.  I did not know that, odd/funny though that my Virgo Sun/Uranus/Pluto lives in 9th house of religion.  I’m not catholic, but very happy with the new Pope, Francis (named after Saint Francis Assisi patron of animals, including birds, and ecology) going all environmentally active.

Marc_Chagall027Would you find it interesting that when my reading began I was also holding a Chagall card (Night of Venice) that a friend sent me ?  Messages.  Zinging !

More incoming ~>  Earlier today I posted (here) a crop circle card for healing.  It did not come with a book, just instructions to meditate, infuse H20 with the frequency of the card…not much beyond the link I provided in that post (under the card).
Perhaps you saw it…mulled it over…?  Wondered what it meant ?
I did.

I of course, being naturally curious with plenty of Uranus (and Leo !) energy…was not satisfied, I wanted more.  I went looking…good thing I am a crack detective – it was worth it, so I share it here with you.

Crop Circle Longwood Warren HampshireThis crop circle I posted earlier today is (well obviously) a Solar system glyph, from Longwood Warren, Hampshire, 22 June 1995. It depicts the Sun, Mercury, Venus, the Earth’s, Mars, and Jupiter’s orbit. (The super cool more precise bit…?)

According to Gerald Hawkins, it shows a planetary alignment that occurred on 6 November 1903, the day the Wright brothers proved that man could fly, and again on 11 July 1971, during Mariner 9’s journey to Mars.  More here.

Incidentally, Mars rules Red.  What is red ?   See Color and Chakras.

[Edit: 11.6.1903: Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Virgo, Jupiter in Pisces
7.11.1971: Mercury in Leo, Venus in Cancer, Jupiter in Scorpio ]

My reader was telling me via a flock of cardinals that I need to f l y.  I was also flat out told I have (figuratively) one foot nailed to the floor.  Ha  Exactly one to be precise.
Fixed Neptune (feet) squares from Scorpio 11th to Leo 8th & an opposition to Moon in Taurus.  A reluctance to surrender … stubborn… yeah it’s an issue.  I’m fixing it !

I laughed at how perfectly on pointe, then found this crop circle flight ref just a little too good not to share.

I’ll leave this post with a message straight from cardinal himself.

May we all find our wings and fly free…
peace

Card on the left is Saturn energy ::: card on the right is Jupiter energy
Cards I pulled this am.
Fortunes I have pulled in the last couple of days…they have been laying on my workbench in command central…waiting.
They pinpoint the planetary energies well.

Even Saturn people get tired of Saturn, but we are resigned to it. 
Suck it up, keep moving. 
Saturn restricts, limits, tests – Saturn is karma.
Saturn in the natal is the house where you will WORK and WORK and WORK.
Same holds true of where it transits.

On the upside, (cause every planet and sitch has two sides) Saturn is focus, patience and justice, the reward delivered at the end of the line.
What you give; you get.

:::::::::::::::::::::::

Jupiter is the planet of fun-loving frolic, luck, long distance travel, optimism and expansion.  It sounds like a good time because IT IS.  On the downside, Jupiter scatters, is extravagant, over-confident and it makes bigger every energy it contacts – good or bad.

Jupiter in the natal and by transit indicates growth, exploration and philosophies garnered through travel of both the body and mind.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Capricorn Moon is conjunct Pluto as I write this (restriction/metamorphosis of feelings), the aspect will pass very soon, pressure will release.  (Apologies, I checked out for a bit – Saturn opposing my natal Moon & Moon transit in Cap kicked me into hermit mode – Saturn is hermits, alone)

Mercury, Mars and Neptune are square Jupiter in Gemini.

Taurus and Capricorn are the places to find your opportunities at the moment – investigate and act on the feelings / actions inspiration to be found in those houses.

Cancers and Scorps are getting ease through the trine to Pisces – thinking, actions and healing inspirations are primo for you – full speed ahead !

Virgosbong – peace talks.  Someone in your face forcing adjustments in thinking, actions, artistic inspirations and boundaries.

Geminis and Sagittarians are facing inner metamorphosis regarding thinking, actions, spiritual / artistic goals, boundaries.
::::::::::::::::::
Now for the reading:
Both cards drawn are 25 seven is a spiritual number, ruled by Uranus – sevens signal rebellion and spiritual growth.  Ironically also polarities and dualities – very appropriate for current astro.

25 Forneus
Element Earth; Planet Moon
this read is amazingly accurate, yes ?  love it when that happens
Rhetoric, fluency and speaking in tongues – this gift coupled with honesty will serve you well in all dealings with others.  You will be respected by all, including your enemies.

This angel’s totem is a sea monster, indicating deep subconscious healing and mystical inspiration.  Know the trickster – see the dualities – be aware of both sides of yourself and others.  Light and shadow side, intelligence and justice – the sword of truth is double-edged.  Interesting also that Saturn and Pluto are in mutual reception – or in each other’s signs, a form of sharing and dualities…

This card points to honesty with others and also being honest with yourself.
::: Apply this card to your house of natal Saturn as well as house Scorpio :::

25 Metamorphosis
Pain, transformation and letting go – (Plutonic) energy of death and rebirth.
Powerful force, intense struggle which results in profound change.  The thing about metamorphosis – you are virtually unrecognizable to your former self.  This power destroys, uncovers ALL – metamorphoses – to make ALL shiny and new.

This is not an invitation to USE the energies you are forced to change – like it or not.
(yes, USE is a Pluto in Capricorn reference)

When applied to Jupiter energies, which was what I asked the cards… It points to the recent Jupiter retrograde – thinking and philosophies about it turned inward in dual Gemini.

Metamorphosis card speaks of the polarities of shrinking, tweaking, examining the innards – aka retrograde – so that the aim is more accurately directed now that Jupiter  is direct.
