Virgo 3° ~ Two angels bring protection

The Sabian symbol for August 25th Virgo 3° ~ Two angels bring protection ~ Keyword: SECURITY⁣

“When positive, the degree is a sure conviction which enables man to proceed to an effective fulfillment of his dreams, and when negative, vain pretense and self-importance.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Love exists before the birth.”⁣

Eurythmics ~ Miracle of Love http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOGD1WkJJok

Love Child of Two Angels⁣

We cannot be born without parentage–cosmic, as well as mortal. And whether or not we can appreciate the human ones, know that they are indeed angels though you may not yet have the capacity to understand or appreciate it. So, if that proves difficult, then begin at the outermost realm, the cosmic, immortal realm—where Yin and Yang set existence into motion–the light from within the void. An act of passion of universal proportions! ⁣

Now bring it to a point of understanding, a point of conception and inception. That would be you. That would be me. That would be each and every one of us who has ever lived, is now living, or is yet to come to this planet to live. ⁣

You can’t remove this stardust from you; your fire burns within. You are the Miracle of Love. The love that existed before birth…⁣

The Archetypal Angels ~ Rudolph Valentine and Natasha, his leading lady ⁣

“It is in Rudolph’s blood to wear black velvet pantaloons and stamp his black patent leather boots and click castanets. His manner was quite Argentine; his hair quite brilliantine. ⁣

“Natasha Rambova was also clad in black velvet, offset with a red Carmen-like shawl. She was very brave to put on a ten-dollar pair of black silk stockings so close to her partner’s three-inch silver spurs,” Times reporter Dora Dean⁣

“When positive, the degree is an utterly selfless enlistment in some dramatic service for the ultimate welfare of humankind, and when negative, witless dogmatism and misdirected efforts for causes of great pretension but little real worth.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Time to take your power back.”⁣

Fight Song ~ Rachel Platten https://youtu.be/e8qDOGLCSFo 🎵 ⁣

Now, get up off your knees and march onward. Deal with what’s right in front of you! You’re just gonna have to learn how to trust in you again. Have some faith! It’s time for you to take control of your life. Take your power back. ⁣

This is about your happiness!⁣

Pick up your cross. What cross? That one—the big white one right there in front of your eyes. No, not that one! That one’s mine. Yes, the other one. That one’s yours. Has it a name? It has. What is it? I don’t know. It’s your cross. You name it. I’ve got my own to carry. ⁣

Seriously, you still don’t get it? Come on then, have a sit. Think about it. What is it you want? What makes you happy? Where is your power? Think, man, think! Think, woman, think!⁣

Today may you rise up and reach the synthesis of who you are within, working with self not against self! It’s the only way. It’s what your journey is all about. ⁣

Now take back your power! Stand up straight, shoulders back, chin up! Now march! Carry on! Carry on! Carry on!⁣

Virgo 1° ~ A man’s head

The Sabian symbol for August 23rd Virgo 1° ~ A man’s head ~ Keyword: CHARACTER⁣

“When positive, the degree is an effective self-assurance and an ever-clear vision of each emerging opportunity in life, and when negative, inordinate vanity and a consistent overestimation of individual capacities.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Extraordinary means!”⁣

Of ogres and ogresses… Shrek the Third https://youtu.be/dc4lno7O468 🦌 👂 ⁣

Double Entendre ~ a word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué.⁣

Character, that quality of self in which it is far better to have one than to be one… But, (and what comes after ‘but’ is always the most important part!) if you are truly a class-act, you can have one and be one, too!⁣

Let’s be characters with character! Do try to see what’s missing and bring that to light from within! You’ll be doing yourself, and the world at large, an invaluable service.⁣

The Seven Cardinal Virtues⁣

All virtues have as their final scope to dispose man to acts conducive to his true happiness. ⁣

The happiness, however, of which man is capable is twofold, namely, natural, which is attainable by man’s natural powers, and supernatural, which exceeds the capacity of unaided human nature. ⁣

Since, therefore, merely natural principles of human action are inadequate to a supernatural end, it is necessary that man be endowed with supernatural powers to enable him to attain his final destiny. ⁣

Now these supernatural principles are nothing else than the theological virtues.” James Stalker⁣

Find your character, find your happiness!⁣

The Sabian symbol for August 22nd Leo 30° ~ An unsealed letter ~ Keyword: CONFIDENCE⁣⁣⁣

An unsealed letter in the palm of our hand? Buddha – looking at his own right hand…⁣⁣⁣

“In some portrayals of the Buddha, he is looking at his right hand. But is he only looking at it? Actually, when the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, he is making contact with the great hand of the Creator, that is, with the whole universe, with suns, stars and nebulae. And in the Creator’s hand, the Milky Way represents the line of Saturn.⁣⁣⁣

“If the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, it is because the hand is not simply a physical organ we use like a tool or instrument. It is imbued with a mysterious power, by means of which it communicates with nature’s subtle bodies. Like the Buddha, anyone who concentrates on their hand can connect with the universe. They will feel they are in the hand of the Creator, nourished by the energies they receive from its centre.” Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov⁣⁣⁣

Akashic Records – The Book of Remembrance⁣⁣⁣

The Akashic records are like the DNA of the universe. They are the soul’s journey over time, so every thought, word, and deed is registered in the Akashic records. Each soul has its own Akashic record, and there are collective records of all souls or all journeys.⁣⁣

The Deep ~ “Accept me for who I am and not what you see. Take time to understand the pieces of me. What you see is not what you’re going to get. The perception you hold of me, I will soon make you forget. Beneath the surface, you will find so much more. I have locked myself away within my soul’s core. I’m very selective of who I show all of my colors to. The only ones who have access to my realness are those…who walk in Truth.” Lena Hovanesian⁣

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, 4th stanza, by Robert Frost⁣

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.⁣

But I have promises to keep,⁣

And miles to go before I sleep,⁣

David Lanz ~ Cristofori’s Dream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kwa5E-Z_CY0 🎼 ⁣

The planet of sensation, Earth—where birds sing, flowers bloom, clouds drift, waters flow, and mountains spire. With eyes, ears and nose; fingers, hands, legs and toes, all of our senses ingest, digest and consume all that is about us. ⁣

⁣To each experience we attach a measure of significance through these sensate abilities. In the end we will have a story to tell—our astounding experiences and unique perspectives of what we have realized, those epiphanies of which we have become intimately aware. ⁣

Thus, born into such an amazing world and filled with such incredible personal senses, how might we plan, organize and construct for a future intake of our highest mental, emotional and physical endowment? We are the sum total of our experiences. Make yours a conceptual melody, won’t you, please? ⁣

This planet we call home, Earth, is filled to overflowing with stories. Some are mean and angry, full of hatred and misconceptions and loathing. But there are other voices! Listen to them! They speak of unfathomable beauty and joy! Indeed by such inspired voices has this cherished tradition of story-telling long been kept alive among us—at the cradle, on the knee, around the campfire, from the pulpit and podiums of great men and women come…⁣

The Sabian symbol for August 18th Leo 26° ~ A rainbow ~ Keyword: SIGNIFICANCE

Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away https://youtu.be/TrI-eK5IV0I

What is significant to you? You must decide for yourself.

Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?

The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.

Alice: I don’t much care where.

The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.

A Bird’s Eye View ~ Messengers of Truth

In the early 1970s, a researcher testing the ability of pigeons to discriminate colors, discovered by accident that the birds can see ultraviolet (UV) light. The finding was deemed curious but not too important. “It was natural for scientists to assume that bird vision is like human vision,” says Geoffrey Hill, an Auburn University ornithologist and the author of Bird Coloration. “After all, birds and humans are both active by day, we use bright colors as cues. … No one really imagined birds might see the world differently.”

Never assume! You know where that leads, don’t you?

Leo 25° ~ A large camel crossing the desert

“Sufficient unto one’s self.”

The Sabian symbol for August 17th Leo 25° ~ A large camel crossing the desert ~ Keyword: ADEQUACY

“When positive, the degree is uncompromising persistence and uncomplaining self-expenditure in any course to be followed, and when negative, ruthlessness in an unintelligent self-interest.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones

Paraousia – Paraousia https://youtu.be/tL1rb3DscIM

Wholly, holy, presence…

The camel carries water within itself, thus “living” water. And if we were to envision ourselves like unto the camel, then instead of seeing life as a barren wilderness threatening our survival, we might instead, also like the camel, realize we have all that we need to fully engage and even prosper in the “wilderness”. We might shake any gloomy outward view and instead base our perspective on the light from within. We each came here, you see, equipped not just to start the journey, but to finish it, and we may accomplish that in any way, with whatever attitude, level of understanding and way of being that we choose.

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.” Orson Welles

And that is the turning point from wholeness to holiness! In such a state—aware of one’s own living water within, this greater form of holiness will emerge—interdependence. When two or more come together in wholeness—each aware of its own self-sustenance—then the caravan, the group of the holy, begins moving and flowing, too.

The Sabian symbol for August 16th Leo 24° ~ An untidy, unkempt man ~ Keyword: IMPERTURBABILITY ⁣

“When positive, the degree is an ease of outer accomplishment thanks to the inner intensification and increasing sensibility, and when negative, perverse satisfaction in a neglect of self.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

The Soft Goodbye ~ Celtic Women http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hw56OaLWMwk 🎶 ⁣

When all is said and done, what will you have made of yourself, your character, your destiny? ⁣

We are all so easily distracted! Tail wagging the dog seems to be the rule rather than the exception in our daily lives, dealing with circumstances, missing the subtleties, the energy-messages from which to extract higher meaningfulness…⁣

The Philosopher’s Stone ~ To be master over everything, one must only become master of oneself. That is, is it not, the only mastery to which one is called or entitled? And further, it is denied to no one. A divine birthright. Yet, so infrequently is this stone embraced and pursued for polishing… ⁣
