Libra 8° ~ A blazing fireplace in a deserted home

The Sabian symbol for September 30th Libra 8° ~ A blazing fireplace in a deserted home ~ Keyword: GUARDIANSHIP⁣

“When positive, the degree is an exceptional gift for enlisting both men and the natural forces of life in the service of self and its dominating vision, and when negative, a witless dismissal of all affairs to their own devices.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Rising up through the ashes.”⁣

Death on one level means life on another. Avia⁣

And within this darkness, I became the light. …In psychic spaces, in the darkness, look for that which shines the brightest. Follow it…become it…then, lead it.⁣

“Vultures Chose Me” is a video by Green Renaissance that documents a woman’s flight with the vultures. It is simply breath-taking. I hope you enjoy it.⁣

“That is freedom. You’re flying up there, and the sun is going down. It’s peaceful. It’s quiet.”⁣

If Vulture has flown across your path you are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle. Know that you are always free to choose your own path but be flexible while moving forward. Allow yourself to use all of your senses to navigate through this situation for your highest benefit. Call on all your resources to get the job done. Alternatively Vulture recognizes that you are fiercely protective of those you feel responsible for but you are reminded that knowing when to allow others to sink or swim is important too. Recognize the need for higher awareness in all those around you.” Spirit Animals⁣

Libra 7° ~ A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks

Libra 7° ~ A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks ~ Keyword: SHREWDNESS⁣

“When positive, the degree is a high competence in administering the duties of normal experience and a very special skill in protecting the self’s real interests, and when negative, a complete personal ineptitude in the face of life’s everyday and recurrent complexities.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Kindness, come hell or high water.”⁣

Out of Sight, Out of Mind⁣

Where are the chickens in Vincent van Gogh’s sketch? Where are the hawks? ⁣

Things that are implied through action—one hand holding up her apron with the feed in it and her other hand raised ready to toss, all set against a dark background. It is enough. We will not know what it is we are feeding today, but there is reciprocity and value implied. We eat eggs; we eat chickens. It serves us, therefore, to serve and to protect. These are some good things to think on today, shrewdly, if you will.⁣

“What happens when you add fire?”

Bastille ~ Things We Lost in the Fire

Fire Power ~ The Last Element

What happens when you add Fire to the first three elements — Earth, Air and Water? I realize that Fire is considered the first element; however, it was the last one we, mankind, received, and so in the present consideration, let us considered the beginning from the end or what happens when the first comes last and the last comes first…

What will happen will depend on how whether we choose to destroy or to create with it. When we play with it, ignorantly or otherwise, we end up getting burned. This we learn from experience.

We could utilize it to stay warm from the cold, prepare warm food, cleanse in warm water. Those would be beneficial uses of fire. We could also create weapons with it, for protection or for violent aggression. Good or bad the intention, Fire will serve us as we desire.

That’s probably why Zeus didn’t want Prometheus to give it to us. We weren’t wise enough. He knew we’d get burned. But Prometheus knew that without it we wouldn’t survive; we’d die from the cold. Fire, dangerous to handle, but it’s the only way to survive. And, not only survive, but thrive.

Through it, we might find ourselves in the throes of immoral pleasures or passions. On the other hand, we could touch the higher realms of spiritual inspiration and magic–physically, mentally or emotionally.

Fire–it all depends on what we do with it. One thing about Fire; when you misuse it or use it, there will be immediate feedback. We will learn, one way or another. We wanted to be like the Gods. We’ve got our chance. We’ve got Fire power. How are we handling it so far?

The Fruits of The Tree of Life⁣

“Numbers are the framework of the universe, and those who know them not only possess the science of creation but also become all-powerful, for numbers are magic forces. All human beings have a specific number, and if they know it, they also know exactly where they fit into the universe.⁣

You could say that every human being is a number which has its own particular vibration and that this fundamental, essential vibration, determines their being and the whole of their life: their destiny and their path in life, as well as their physical body, their health and even the cast of their features.⁣

A person’s number represents the vibrations of his or her innermost being, which attract certain elements and repulse others, in accordance with the law of affinity and polarity, of which I have often spoken.” Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov – Spiritual Master⁣

Libra 4° ~ A group around a campfire

Libra 4° ~ A group around a campfire ~ Keyword: AMIABILITY⁣

“When positive, the degree is special skill in building an everyday morale and in sustaining an effective structure for further and greater objectives in life, and when negative, a lazing away of opportunity and an idle dependence on others.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“Gather ‘round, the fire’s ready.”⁣

Let the campfire lure you back to your memories. ⁣

Rocco DeLuca ~ Congregate 🎶

Part 1 – The busy, busy days of youth camp focused on a central concept, reason, or theme which brought the particular group together. ⁣

The busy, busy daylight hours of outdoor activities and adventures—setting up tents or claiming bunks in the cabins; unpacking, organizing, arranging–making sure things were in order. We invigorated in this new, exciting—even if temporary—environment. We had to know what the different whistle sounds from our counselor’s whistle meant—both long and short bursts, and how to responsibly use our own—in case of emergency only! And we had to attend to our assigned duties, do our chores—for the good of the group. We chopped and gathered wood, filled our buckets with water—taking turns at leading and following–through narrow hiking trails full of thorns and switches—to see who had the most remaining water when we returned to base camp. ⁣

And, of course, each of us had our own walking stick! Perhaps we had feathers twined to its top, or maybe we’d whittled our initials into ours. It mattered not save that our identity was preserved and honored—respected by the group. ⁣

More assignments of observing, learning and writing down our notes on types of vegetation, insects, birds, perhaps even animals! … Oh my! Be on the look-out! Know the warning signs, and the way to signal for help, should you find yourself in danger or lost. Ever watching out for one another. Knowing where the first aid kit was. Staying alert. ⁣

And, lots and lots of bug spray and sunscreen lotion! Then comes the evening. Day is done, gone the sun. From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh…⁣

“Gather round! The fire’s ready!” 🔥 ⁣

“A symbol is an idea made flesh, a spirit that has come to incarnate. Through the flesh or body of the symbol we must seek to reconnect to the idea, the force, the energy that exists above. As we become able to decipher symbols, we become familiar with the language of Cosmic Intelligence.” Omraam⁣

Part 2 – The stars come out. The night sounds—the hooting of owls, perhaps. And….the crackling of the….campfire. Oh, that memory begins something like this call over the counselor’s megaphone: “Bring it in, bring it in! Gather ‘round, the fire’s ready!”⁣

The most treasured and ritualized gathering of the group around the campfire—⁣

And so we gather, we congregate, we assemble, and it is our way of giving thanks, of remembering who we are. As individuals we share stories while others listen. We take turns. Then as a group we sing, oftentimes in rounds. And we laugh. Sometimes we cry. Mostly we do both..with our hearts and minds joined in unity. We know, around the campfire, that we “belong”. Campfires bring us together to inspire as well as consume. Here it is we congregate in the sacred open space beneath the cosmic skies. Here our arduous encounters with sticks and stones, thorns and bushes, rivers and streams, sun and sweat, mosquitoes and critters, are brought in close and shared, recounted, sealed up to our remembrance.⁣

Laughter and song, fire stoking and skyward gazing, we bring it in, we gather ’round. We unwind, we regroup. Bonds are forged that will never be forgotten. Here we are re-stimulated, re-ignited. Though our division of labor and skill and responsibility may differ tremendously ‘out there’, here we are reminded that we all belong, we are all needed and wanted–we are a group—a special sort of family–and it is a magical thing!⁣

Let’s not forget the s’mores! Grab a stick and come join us! You are welcome here!⁣

Libra 2° ~ The light of the sixth race transmuted to the seventh ~ Keyword: THRESHOLD⁣

“Rise up light as a feather.”⁣

Find the Joy ~ The Bucket List

Weighing the Lightness of the Heart with a Feather⁣

Maat was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation. As a goddess in other traditions of the Egyptian pantheon, where most goddesses were paired with a male aspect, her masculine counterpart was Thoth and their attributes are similar. After her role in creation and continuously preventing the universe from returning to chaos, her primary role in Egyptian mythology dealt with the weighing of souls (also called the weighing of the heart) that took place in the underworld, Duat. Her feather was the measure that determined whether the souls (considered to reside in the heart) of the departed would reach the paradise of afterlife successfully.

”Our lives are streams flowing into the same river towards whatever heaven lies in the mist beyond the falls. … My dear friend, close your eyes and let the waters take you home.” The Bucket List⁣

Libra 1° ~ A butterfly made perfect by a dart through it~ Keyword: ARTICULATION⁣

“When positive, the degree is man’s awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus of character, and when negative, the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

We have entered the social hemisphere of the wheel, Libra through Pisces. Here we are embarking on the pathway through Libra where we have the opportunity to perfect personality in order to facilitate the broadest possible sharing of experience with our fellows. ⁣

If you are the vision-board moon goddess or a goal-driven sort of fellow, this is a perfect opportunity to step into the zodiacal sign of Love with similar intention. We have 12 such opportunities to avail ourselves of sign-setting experiments of conscious expansion each year.⁣

Consider what small change you could make towards enhancing your personality. Set your goal, make your vision board! Be encouraged!⁣

The Butterfly Effect⁣

“In chaos theory the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic non-linear system can result in large differences in a later state.” Wiki⁣

Honorable Mention ~ Welcome Fall, where Forced Submission meets up with Spiritual Independence!⁣

Things that matter more—like honoring and being your true self—like answering The Call when it comes. But that does, can, and will cause trouble at times. And the higher up on the leadership totem you get, the more risk you take by abandoning the script that was handed to you.⁣

Scripts that Weren’t Adhered To⁣

Politicians and Hollywood Stars aren’t excused from this idea of being high up on the totem pole either. Any kind of fame or notoriety can get you into the arena of forced submission. But today demands spiritual independence. The light is being called into action. Lights! Camera! Action!⁣

Against All Odds⁣

Today is about the immortality of a message, in a way. Some pay a high price to deliver it. Still there are messages that will persist, regardless the risk. Those are on-stage now. They show up through mortal mouthpieces, in various arenas. Were you able to hear them, see them, smell, taste or touch them? Maybe you have been called to give them!⁣

“The bridging of the 7 and 9.”⁣

The Enneagram Dance:

“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.” Nikola Tesla⁣

Attention please!⁣

The enneagram is a nine-pointed figure usually inscribed within a circle. Within the circle is a triangle connecting points 9, 3 and 6. The inscribed figure resembling a web connects the other six points in a cyclic figure 1-4-2-8-5-7. This number is derived from or corresponds to the recurring decimal .142857 = 1/7. These six points together with the point numbered 9 are said to represent the main stages of any complete process… The points numbered 3 and 6 are said to represent “shock points” which affect the way a process develops. The internal lines between the points; that is, the three-point figure and the six-point figure, are said to show certain non-obvious connections…

One more time, in case you read over it too quickly: ⁣

“The inscribed figure resembling a web connects the other six points in a cyclic figure 1-4-2-8-5-7. This number is derived from or corresponds to the recurring decimal .142857 = 1/7.”⁣

Jumpin’ Jupiter! It’s the bridging of the 7 and 9! The web over top of the triangle! ⁣

As you were.⁣
