ELIAS LONSDALE CHANDRA SYMBOL DEGREES

ARIES 10
“Roots of a tree entwined around the statue of a nude woman.
Bondage and freedom sometimes go hand in hand. The bondage is being true to pattern, predictable, caught in habits and tendencies perpetually left to grow like weeds. The freedom is that as you meet yourself starkly in the midst of these old, tired patterns of behavior, you come into touch with a quickening flame of self-recreation, stimulated and forced by being at the mercy of the relentless patterns. This impulse to make yourself over is fervently strong, courageous, ready, and willing. The old stuff dies hard. You are therefore engaged in a pitched battle of a protracted kind between retrogressive and progressive ideals, impulses, and desires. Both sides are so impassioned and sharply intent that this becomes a knockdown, drag-out battle of wills. The atavistic backward-leaning will feels immune to change. The visionary forward-thrusting will feels moved by evolutionary forces never to give up. Eventually, the future prevails over the past, but not before scars and multiple traumas mark the spot of fighting for your life against an implacable inward enemy who knows it will lose and fights all the harder accordingly.”

John Sandbach on Chandra OMEGA and Pleiadian symbols

Aries 10. “In many different places, a man keeps seeing the same number. Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks can kill: protection from the evil eye, Divine Grace)

The universe speaks to you loudly and clearly, echoing itself everywhere. Specific energies reach out to you, their strange melodies trying to gain your attention. You need only to follow their call, track with them, and keep listening. Your obsessions are powerful creative forces, operating beyond the ken of your conscious rational mind. You cannot repress or ignore forever what you’re feeling. Wisdom is seeking you out, and will find you, eventually.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Roots of a tree entwined around the statue of a nude woman.” Slowly, gradually, understanding embraces the feminine spirit – but the understanding has to grow into the embrace. The feminine spirit is patient and can wait, for she knows that to grow and develop strong roots that have the power to reach out the tree will needs gradual and attentive nourishment over time.

This is the seed degree of Capricorn.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the touch of a magician’s hand a text in a forgotten tongue is spontaneously translated.

Azoth Symbol: A fallen white column, which, over time, has partially sunk into the rich soil of a meadow.

Seed degree: Cancer 19. A man memorizing Chinese characters. (Omega Symbol). Having learned the secret language, one is stalked by poems and oracles.

An opossum comes out into the moonlight. (Chandra Symbol). Drawn out of our secret lair by the irresistible pull of our own yearnings, the tentacles of our understanding gradually grow into caressing the goddess.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 1. A man mesmerized as he reads words glowing with light. (Omega Symbol). The numbers accumulate, and form into a language – the more we understand the more we are flooded with divine knowing.

A canopy bed with curtains. (Chandra Symbol). As our understanding embraces the goddess more and more, we enter a deep, private inner sanctum where we can be profoundly renewed.

Oracle

Like an infinite sea, numbers are always there, existing beyond time and space until we think of them, at which time they appear, revealing an infinite variety of potential vistas to the mind.

Particular numbers are drawn to certain places, certain times, and, of course, certain people. There was a number who fell in love with a man, and silently followed him wherever he went, but when it could no longer remain hidden, he began to see it, again and again, wherever he looked. And over time, he was able to return the number’s love. It was a mystic union, secret and intimate.”

Please watch the Video of the WOUNDED HEALER FULL MOON which also offers a host of other important indications. “

Rare Hard knocks repeat karma

September 29 This is one of the hardest of hard knocks days of the year as the two malefics MARS and SATURN square off.

Mars is Retrograde in Aries at 25 degrees 20 minutes Square Saturn in Capricorn

We are going back over old actions today and needing to take account for ourselves. Saturn is the planet of responsibility. Mars squared Saturn on August 24 so this is a repeat deja vu of that energy in reverse.

Saturn is always the great Taskmaster and tester is forcing us to look at history, look at our anger, resentments, impatience, immaturity and our defences as Saturn turns STATIONARY DIRECT in its own sign-something that only happens once every 28 years. Look at what the karmic golden nugget lesson is which you were blind to before.

Saturn stationing at 25+ degrees Capricorn conjunct PLUTO square Mars Retro in Aries conjunct ERIS is a minefield waiting to explode. “Can’t get no satisfaction” aspect which is rare with both Planets SATURN and MARS in their own signs and super strong. Fight or flight its an adrenaline overload.  

The Chandra Symbol by Elia Lonsdale 

CAPRICORN 26
“A solitary grave in the midst of a cornfield.
When you die and then come to life again in your next earthly lifetime, the one who died before and the one who lives now are brothers. The brother here now cannot forget the brother who died. Your heart is heavy with the karmic stories of your last previous lifetime. To actually enter upon this lifetime now takes forever. The past, what was suffered and lost, is what speaks inside. And in order to move through this extended interlude, you are going to need to return to the past places and see them again. Otherwise nothing goes right. Sometimes you have to go way back to get on with anything. And sometimes the truth is bleak, painful, tragic, and worth pursuing.”

Do Be careful if you are out as people will be angry, repressed and wanting to strike out. This is tough government militia. The presidential debate is going on in the US tonight. There may be an assassination attempt or some major kerfluffles. It will be interesting to see how crazy angry mad people will be. 

A Saturn slows moves forwards we begin to manifest new skills and wisdom, distilled from the school of hard knocks and letting go life lessons we’ve confronted and worked on and can now build a new foundation in the world.

The SUN opposes Chiron in Aries.

 LIBRA SUN is trying to find a balance point when we are armoured to the teeth but wounded and vulnerable underneath. We need to be vulnerable, to expose our wounds to know we need to be healed and to seek others who can witness our wounds.

The MOON is in idealistic, escapist, dreamy, psychic PISCES. And we are feeling the anxiety depression fear of everyone in the world. PISCES is the sense of ONENESS of no definitions or boundaries, it is the SOURCE of ALL. Do meditate, zone out, stay chill and ZEn.

This is a very trying day, a BIG TEST day. Stay centred and be gentle with yourself, get into a special spiritual bath with lavender and rose oil and let it all go. Feel your connection to SOURCE and know that is all there is.

The original interpretation of the SABIAN SYMBOLS by DANE RHYDYAR is much more positive and relates to the water element with the PISCES Moon

“PHASE 296 (CAPRICORN 26°): A NATURE SPIRIT DANCING IN THE IRIDESCENT MIST OF A WATERFALL.

KEYNOTE: The ability to perceive the hidden and creative spirit of natural phenomena.

The Sabian symbols make several references to nature spirits Here we are dealing with the revelation of the spiritual or psychic forces related to the element water. Water binds all living cells in a wholesome interplay. It symbolizes the constant flow of vital energies, the fluidity of a consciousness which finds itself stimulated by change. The great cycle of water within the earth’s biosphere (oceans, clouds, rain, river) symbolizes the basic phases of universal life processes, the ascent and descent of emotional energies and of love. We can personify these phases and speak of “the soul of nature,” and at a cosmic level of “the World-Soul,” anima mundi. Water is the substance of the telluric manifestations of this soul. It is a magical substance, and modern chemists are rediscovering in their study of its unusual behavior in certain situations what old Alchemists in their own way no doubt understood.

This is the first stage of the sixtieth subcycle, and it presents us with a deep intuition of super-physical energies which at the end of this five-fold sequence we will see fully mastered (Phase 300). The consciousness here becomes sensitized to the downward flow of OCCULT ENERGY in its bountiful natural aspect.”

We’re getting ready for the first FULL MOON in OCTOBER on October 1st at 9 ARIES OCTOBER is a BLUE MOON MONTH with the 2nd Full MOON a BLUE one on HALLOWEEN.

I will be live on FACEBOOK for OCTOBER’s TAROT and ASTROLOGY PREVIEW on Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 30 at 5:30 pm PDT, 8:30 pm EDT and October 1 @ 1:30 am GMT on the COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY PAGE

Prince Harry Astrology Predictions 2020-2021

Prince Harry 2020-2021 Astrology

Prince Harry 2020-2021 Astrology

Prince Harry’s 2020 has been a HUGE year of changes for him already. It’s all in DIVINE TIMING as SATURN, the planet of testing, obstacles, maturity, fathers, endings, buildings, businesses and reality entered AQUARIUS March 21/22 GMT square his Natal Pluto at 0 SCORPIO. Pluto symbolizes the soul and psyche, deep emotional endings, death, rebirth and Phoenix-like transformation, in his 9th House of foreigners, teaching, philosophy, optimism and International affairs. This is around the time the Prince and wife Meghan moved from Vancouver Island to California. They have since bought a permanent multi-million dollar home in July in Montecito near Santa Barbara.

Turning 36 is also an archetypal year as it is half of 72 the number of years it takes for a star to move 1 degree and is also one half of 144. This is all biblical Hebraic Numerology.

NOTE that JUPITER and SATURN meet at 0 AQUARIUS on December 21, 2020 ushering in a brand new 20-year era for everyone. This fortunate balancing act of expansion and restriction will square Harry’s natal PLUTO. The next 20 years for Harry is to revolutionize business by working with mental health, ensoulment, teachings, revolution, groups, networking, organizations and MEDIA in a Higher consciousness way. Aquarius is considered the “higher octave” of Mercury,the planet of communications and hi-tech, the Net. like. Netflix.  This expands Harry’s brand and broad appeal. Harry has reinvented himself. It’s an entirely new lifestyle and Brand new Brand which is and will be bringing Harry and Meghan more freedom Aquarius’s main theme, wealth and power than he ever had as head of new worldwide organizations. This combo is very fortunate for Harry and for everyone and everything Bitcoin included with planets at or near 0 degrees of all FIXED SIGNS, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

ANOTHER CHILD

Jupiter is the planet of fertility and expansion so a new addition to the Duke and Duchess’s family is definitely on the list in 2020-2021. Since writing this article sadly Meghan and Harry lost a baby to a miscarriage in July 2020. Meghan was under hard aspects due to Pluto opposing Meghan’s24 degree Cancer Mothering rising sign and Hard aspects to her Natal Pluto at 21 degrees LIBRA as well as difficult hard aspect from Saturn transiting back into Capricorn after stepping into Aquarius. 

Saturn is the Reality principle, The ringed planet governs architecture, buildings, career, long term plans, Taxes, endings and fatherhood and karma. This is a firm foundation and a brand new reality for the Prince and his family. Taxes may prove to be a difficult challenge.

PLUTO governs Scorpio, the sign of deep emotional transformation, power, wealth, other people’s money, inheritance, taxes, secrets and control. Pluto is still a planet to Astrologers and is the great emotional and psyche transforming planet, It recycles everything that is outworn to make them usable again. It is the planet which along with Saturn rules Death, Rebirth and Major changes. It’s obvious that Harry has left the Royal building behind for good because it was so Toxic, because of his Mother Princess Diana’s death and the way the press treated Meghan.

Harry has CHIRON, the Wounded Healer where he is the most vulnerable, in GEMINI which rules the lungs, opposite Uranus in Sagittarius, which rules the Media, foreigners, freedom, unexpected chaos from the press, air travel, teaching square his MERCURY in VIRGO which governs Virgo health and also the Sign of Gemini. With Chiron in his 5th house of children, who he obviously adores, and his own childlike innocence and awe about the world.

Harry is a VIRGO and they tend to worry about everything, are intelligent, health oriented, perfectionists and workaholics, very duty-bound to serve others. The change in his diet to a healthier lifestyle should be very beneficial to him.

Later this year December 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn will both square Harry’s natal Pluto in Scorpio again when the combine at 0 Aquarius is a positive thing for the next 20 years for Harry indicating he will be in power as head of new worldwide organizations.

NEPTUNE the planet which rules HOLLYWOOD, images, photography, gurus, glamour, addictions, spirituality, idealism, harities, compassion, rooting for the underdog, mental health, working behind the scenes,is moving in to Oppose Harry’s VIRGO SUN. Its totally literal that he lives near Hollywood now and will be working with Movie stars and influencers like Oprah Winfrey and living like a Movie Star to highlight those who have been neglected, himself he will always have glamour and projection on him. Setting up a new chaity Archwell is also part of Harry’s philanthropic ideals. 

THE SOUTH NODE in SAGITTARIUS recently crossed Harry’s NEPTUNE as well when they sign the Big $100 million dollar multi-year deal with Netflix. Neptune is the planet of actors, illusions, magic, spirituality and his past life indicating his old life as Prince Harry is a past philosophy and role he playes.

I hope Harry, Archie and Meghan and the new baby are all well. Sending them blessings.

February 18 Mercury just went Retrograde and my internet was intermittently off all day.

HAPPY PISCES SEASON, the most psychic, dreamy, intuitive month of the year,

Pisces people are creative, spiritual, blissed-out, ultra-romantic, sometimes martyrs’ with addictive personalities. Pisces are artists who channelled the spirit and blessed Humanity with your gifts. Virgo is your balance complimentary sign.

CLASSICAL MUSICIANS:

While the Sun is in Pisces everyone becomes very dreamy, where is my SOUL MATE? The Holy Grail? The last drink, faith healing.

PISCES IS OCEANIC and water, emotions sensitivity is heightened. It is a great time for all artists and creativity.

You may feel ungrounded, as if in a fog. Dreams are heightened and it makes sensitives Ultra sensitive. You will feel more compassionate, cry at the drop of a hat and want to help all the underdogs. A general emotional overload from people becoming huge psychic sponges. It can feel very disconcerting if you don’t know that that is what is happened.

Pisces rules HOLLYWOOD, and the Academy Awards which are always held at Pisces time. Pisces rules photography, film, images, illusion, glamour projection literal and psychological. Also rules religions, Gurus. ashrams.

Pisces ruling planet is Neptune now very strong in its own sign. The ancient ruler is Jupiter.

So, I offer you a very simple list of TO DO’s to imbibe the Pisces spirit

1. SET PSYCHIC BOUNDARIES

This is most important. Psychic safety must be practiced. Like having safe sex, you must create and wear a psychic circle of protection daily. Just visualize or intend a circle of ultraviolet fire/light around you. Always move clockwise. You can call in St. Germaine or any Higher Master Teacher Guardian Angel to protect you. Yes, there are many negative entities and energies out there. If you are wounded and vulnerable they can attack you via other people. You got to have psychic armour.

2. WORK WITH YOUR DREAMS

Incubate dreams, meditate on remembering dreams before you sleep, keep a dream journal. The intention alone will help you remember. Work on daydreams, fantasies as clues for what you really desire. Don’t get lost in fantasy though.

3. MEDITATE DAILY

If you’ve never done it before. It is not so easy to get to quiet the ego/mind’s chatter. Start a 30-day practice,  Keep it short and simple. Just watch your breathing, it will benefit you greatly. Watch everything that arises with detachment. You can use guided meditation Cd’s. Soft music.

4. CREATE

Even if you have never down this before, sing, dance, get clay, paint or do collages. Do karaoke, plink on a guitar, write a poem. Go to art shows, museums, classical concerts and art films.

5. PRAY

Practice prayer. Get on your knees and pray to whatever your Higher Spirit is. Jesus, God, the Goddess, Kwan Yin, your Guardian Angels. It is healing. Pray for your own redemption.

6. Do CHARITY WORK

Volunteer at a Food Bank once a week, give money or time to help a women’s shelter, support animal rights, donate money, sign petitions.

7. FORGIVE WORK for OTHERS AND YOURSELF

Pisces is the most forgiving time. Forgive yourself and others releasing blocked energy. If you really forgive someone it will never come back. But you also need to forgive yourself for past mistakes, regrets and transgressions. These were all lessons you choose to learn and to grow from. 

8. GIVE UP AN ADDICTION

Whatever your addiction, booze, drugs, meds, sugar, porn, TV, gossip, anger, workaholic, health fanatic. OWN it admit it, get into the healing of it for your soul’s sake and those around you who are being hurt by your pain. Some addictions look healthy but are avoidance mechanisms.

9. WATER

Pisces is a water sign and our water is scarce, precious, polluted. Educate yourself. Conserve it. Lobby to preserve your human right to have access to water. Meditate and send love to the oceans as Dr. Emotto’s studies show. Drink lots of it but not bottled. It is mere ordinary water in a plastic bottle that pollutes more.

10. HAVE FAITH

Yes, even if the world seems to be going to hell in a Capricorn handbasket. Have Faith. All our lives are a test of faith.

P.S. LOVE YOUR FEET

Pisces rules the feet. Get a Reflexology treatment. All the acupuncture spots are on your feet. Go Barefoot, Earthing.

It is very important to also get grounded while in Pisces. My friend Sue Kenney, a writer whose book is My Camino, has designed the world’s first footless shoes.

Goddess of the Flame Brigid

February 1/2 is the Pagan celebration of Imbolc  St. Brigid’s Day Candlemas Groundhog Day. It’s a Cross-quarter day of the Wheel of the Year signifying that we are half way to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere- Spring is coming. 
Brigid February 1 Fire Goddess

[CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0) Entrance to St. Brigid’s well

The Fiery Goddess Awakens 
On a secular level Bill Murray’s famous comedy is a spiritual teaching metaphor which gained wide appeal and is considered a classic fable/comedy 20 years after its initial release.  Bill Murray plays a cynical newscaster who keeps waking up on Groundhog Day living a deja vu, being stuck in time and immortal. Eventually, he figures out that being kind and nice and improving himself is the best thing to do. He learns to care and love and wins the love of his colleague and is free to move on from being stuck in his karmic lessons and live his life.  

Feb. 1st –2nd Traditional Irish and Pagan Holiday Celebrations

Saint Brigid’s Day,or Bride’s Day, is both a Catholic and Pagan Celebration of an ancient Goddess tradition. Christians overlaid the Ancient Goddess holiday renaming it Candlemas or the fest of the Purification of the Virgin

In the Tarot Brigid would be the Queen of Wands or The Woman on the Strength card.

Triple Goddess/Saint Brigid/Bride

According to scholar Robert Graves, Brigid is the most Ancient Triple Goddess worshipped since time out of mind. The Goddess rules scholars and poets.  She is said to rule over people who work with cows and chickens, brewers, fugitives, midwives, infants, printers, sailors, travelers, New Zealand, & Irish nuns.

This day symbolizes a time of transitions, initiations, new beginnings, of planting seeds that will sprout later. Brigid/Birgita represents the light half of the year,and new growth.
If you are uncertain of your path imagine yourself at a four-cornered crossroads, or go to an actual one and invoke Brigid to show you which path to take. 

Goddess of Augury, prophets and seers. Celtic seers divined by looking into deep water and into flames. This is a great time to do divination with either.
Elements- Water and fireBrigid rules the Waters and wells. Many healing springs are dedicated to Brigid. Natural bodies of water also signify Her presence, particularly where three streams joined together. Good time to take a special healing water bath or shower in Brigid’s honor.

She is the Goddess of fire and inspirations, poetry, creativity, smithcraft and healing. It is customary to make candles for the coming year and bless them on this day.

Protecting Goddess

In her aspect as Brigantia, she carries a flaming spear, an orb of victory, and wears a war crown. She symbolizes protection of the country from invaders and slavery. The name “Britain” is derived from Brigit’s name. Britain’s symbol, the Goddess Brigantia, is still found on their 50 cent coin is Brigid.

Midwives

As Patroness of Midwives, she was invoked at the door of the home where the woman was giving birth, by the midwife. Brigid guards every newborn, their cradles protected with a woven Brigit’s Cross, an equal-armed cross.

Brigid Ruler of the Hearth

Especially in Gaelic Scotland, Brigid’s dolls are placed near the hearth on her Feast Day. The doll is usually dressed in white, decorated. A white wand is placed in her bed as a fertility charm. As she is patroness of agriculture, pastures, livestock, and abundance. An offering is made to her of dairy products. The Brigid doll is kept throughout the year near the hearth hung on a wall, or by a door, as a talisman of protection, then burnt the next year.

RITUAL for Brigid 
INCENSE: Rosemary, Frankincense, Myrrh, Cinnamon
 
Gemstones: Turquoise, Amethyst, Garnet and Onyx
Your house especially the hearth needs to be cleaned and purified  to make way for Brigid to bless your house all year-long. Light a candle and carry it into every room to welcome her. 
 Call her
Bride of the earth, keeper of the Eternal Flame 
daughter of the Tuatha de Danaan, sister of faeries, 
She comes to waken the earth from its slumber,
to strengthen the Sun’s rays, 
She bring warmth and light  back once more
and sets seeds slowly stirring below our Mother earth
Her Light is ever eternal, waxing and waning, 
Brigid light my heart and my passion afire anew . 

Light a Candle and Invoke the Goddess at this time-
I kindle this candle in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Smiths,BRIGID is alive and well.

Light 1 candle-

We gather together in this time of darkness. We look to the return of the light.

We look to the first light of Spring.

(Light two more candles.)

Maiden, Mother, and Crone – A Triple Goddess.

It was customary to write wishes upon scraps of cloth

and tie them to the bushes near her sacred wells.

This is Her Time of Year, a very special moment.

A day upon which to seek wisdom from inside the Earth.

In the time before Patrick, serpents were sent out because they dwell in both worlds, above ground and below.

Early warning, Holiday New Year Mercury Retrograde alert

We will be aiming higher in our expectations as Mercury trots through the 9th sign From Nov 12- December 2nd. 

Mercury in Sagittarius is the TRICKSTER in a HORSE COSTUME

Mercury in Sagittarius Tara Greene

Mercury in SAGITTARIUS shoots from the hip quite literally. Aiming its arrows of truth, beauty and optimism higher in pursuit of the big questions. Why are we hear? What is the meaning of Life? We will naturally be talking more naively and honestly to the point of  saying too much.

Mercury in the SAGE is after wisdom, intelligence, justice, philosophy and inspiration. We will want to read a lot, especially history, we will want to know how to back up our pursuits of justice through education, knowing that if we have the knowledge we can back up what it is we seek. This is a about FREE SPEECH. Travelling, taking classes in a wide range of subjects, mysticism, philosophy, Leonard Cohen’s poetry, languages,exotica, yoga, animal rights, and our communities needs, these are all Sagittarius pursuits. 

Our minds are free to roam, this is a good thing, to realize we have common ground in many histories, languages and cultures world wide. 

SAGITTARIUS’s symbol is the rainbow, always a sign from Heaven that there is a bridge between Heaven and Earth.

2016’s extra 4th BONUS! MERCURY RETROGRADE 

Yes we have one more Mercury Retrograde this year which is quite unusual. The “storm” period begins as Mercury crosses the Galactic Center at 28 degrees SAGITTARIUS on December 1st. Mercury enters Capricorn on the 2nd, officially turns Retrograde on December 19th at 15+ degrees of CAPRICORN, those powerful middle degrees and conjunct to PLUTO in CAPRICORN and squaring JUPITER in LIBRA and URANUS in ARIES. A power packed Cardinal T-square. 

Get ready to have a very merry Retrograde Christmas Holiday. It is a Christian Holiday and it should be called what it is to the majority of Catholics in the world today. If we are to be truly liberal we need to be inclusive and honor all the religions and holidays and not be afraid to offend someone else’s religious beliefs who may feel left out. This is the true spirit of Aquarius.  

 Yes our New Year 2017 begins with a Mercury Retrograde in CAPRICORN, indicating that there will be some recalls, rehashing, reviews, karmic business headaches to deal with in 2017.  We can’t start anything new in 2017.

Mercury turns DIRECT January 7th 2017 at 28+ degrees SAGITTARIUS on the G.C.  So relax and chill.

 It will take until January 28th until Mercury passes the 15 degree Capricorn Retrograde degree.  So don’t worry about fulfilling your New Year’s resolutions this year. You will have time to prepare during the Retrograde.

A retrograde Holiday season is best celebrated in very traditional old-fashioned ways. Make your own gifts, give to the poor, connect with family and old friends. Its not about fancy shiny gizmos or toys or the latest thing. Christmas is based on the ancient Celebration of Saturnalia which the Romans celebrated to let slaves be equal to their masters. It was a time of festivities, cross-dressing and making fun of higher ups.

This time of year in the Northern Hemisphere celebrates Winter Solstice, the ancient pagan festival of YULE, the turning of the seasons of the year.  We celebrate the victory of the FEMININE darkness during the longest night of the year, which gives way to the return of the LIGHT, the masculine SUN at the Solstice, December 21st. The story of Christ’s birth is an overlay onto the old religions and was literally translated as a son of God for the real Sun. 

Retrogrades are good times to reflect on the past year. It has been a hell of a year. Many famous and well loved musicians passed away, David Bowie, Prince and now Leonard Cohen and we are at Nov. 12 as I write this. Well you know what’s been happening. 

2017 also begins a new 10 year cycle in Numerology as it is a #1 year. The year of the MAGICIAN in the TAROT which is also the dual-nature planet Mercury.

The MAGICIAN is the beginning of a new 10 year cycle. The MAGICAN’s message is that you are the Magician. You get to create your magic using your mind, intention and consciousness. We all have this innate power. So we need to be very careful of every thought, both consciously and unconsciously and bring that apparent duality into one focused idea. Magic is the nature of the Universe. To cast a spell one simply puts one’s attention, emotion and will behind what one desires. I recommend only doing WHITE MAGIC or positive intentions. 

What magic do you wish to make in 2017? Think about it. Share your thoughts here if you feel moved, Our collective thoughts shape a greater reality.
