Not only am I grieving over losing the coolest dad in the world, but Pluto is dancing around in the 7th house of Libra (partnerships, art, harmony, cooperation, agreements, ect.) in my chart. So I've been a broody little creature lately...perfect time to listen to Black Sabbath every day. I love how they played with dark myth. They will always be cool in my book.
Our Full Moon resides in fiery Sagittarius, which is the astrological sign for the card Temperance. This is juxtaposed with The Sun currently being in Gemini, which rules The Lovers card. Right off the bat I am being drawn to the theme of duality present in both cards. Two cups, two people. This leads my brain to balance, harmony, feminine vs. masculine, spiritual vs. material, choices, relationships, past vs. present, present vs. future. Seeing the bigger picture is key. Tonight is not a time for compartmentalization. Separation. Nit picky. Nope. Rise above and expand. This goes for anything..even the small stuff. Blend the icky stuff into the good stuff like the angel in Temperance and move forward with new perspective. Blessed Be...and Happy Full Moon.
Finally got around to creating an official post for this magical day in the forest with one of my besties, Jasmine Amara. These photos are all courtesy of her amazingness. You can check out her website here. My favorite part of this outfit are the vintage fur hat, and the kimono I was lucky enough to receive from my boyfriend's mom. It is a late sixties piece that I am completely obsessed with.
I've been working closely with The Emperor during the past week. Want to know what he taught me? Here goes folks:
First off, The Emperor represents your masculine/yang side. I am talking the highest qualities of your masculine self. Assertiveness and confidence used to benefit yourself yes, but for others if need be. You know you have twisted his energy up if you use these qualities to squash others, hurt them, or step on them to get ahead. If you use his gifts wisely, then you rock your responsibilities, speak your mind, feel in control of your destiny, and rule over your life in an oh so awesome way. So take action, and build your empire, but watch out for your ego. Don't let that sneaky guy lead you into tyranny, major uptight control mode, or dishonest behavior to get what you want. The Emperor is the coolest father around. He knows what is truly best for you, so he lets you know when you are headed the wrong way. He wants you to succeed by being a solid human. Cheers to a new week, and a new month! Peace. ) O (

According to a numerological equation, the card for February 18, 2014, is The Hermit. Today provides an auspicious time to be alone and cultivate new ideas. Coming out of sickness or a rough period? Rest and chill out. If you are a musician, today is the perfect day to write a new tune, or get some practice time in. Writers, write. Paint. Draw. Collage. Dance. Do yoga. Whatever it is that enhances your craft. Crawl into your own world, so that when you re-emerge, you are on top of your game and ready to make things happen. We are not talking about an angry, sad, lonely Hermit here. It's ok to be solo, and figure stuff out. Think. Muse. Wander. Blessed Be folks.
