Sekhmet

Card of the day: SEKHMET – The Mighty One

Enchantment. Strength. The Underworld. Let your darker emotions bring you strength.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Sekhmet is the Goddess of the Underworld and is considered the patroness of mummification. Egyptians see this embalming process as a magical ritual that enabled the body to live forever. Sekhmet is often portrayed as carrying an ankh, a vibrant symbol of eternal life.

Sekhmet, called The Mighty One in Egypt, is also often depicted as a lion-headed woman who delights in war, violence, and enchantment – surely forceful energies used to deploy change in the world.

Similarly, you and I have dark emotions shading our hearts. Are you afraid of them? Or do you choose to use these emotions to give you strength in facing the challenges before you?

In your infinite godlike wisdom, you know that the power of anger and rage can either motivate you into action or drag you to destruction. Henceforth, cultivate the kind of RIGHTEOUS anger or rage that makes you want to actively do something with strength to help alleviate the injustice done towards yourself, your family member or friend, the environment, and the world.

“My mouth shall speak wisdom, and the meditation of my heart shall give understanding. I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will disclose my dark saying on the harp.” – Psalm 49:3-4, NKJV

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 23-29, 2018 BY STARGAZER BLES: ORACLE TO THE ANGELS AND THE DIWATAS RX: MY READINGS ARE GOOD MEDICINE.

Week of July 23-29, 2018

 
Dear Tribe of Stargazers: Mabuhay! The biggest newsmaker for this week is the Full Moon and partial lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27th. It is heralded as the “blood moon” due to its rusty or blood red color as it passes under the Earth’s dark shadow during a lunar eclipse. Both students of astrology and astronomy eagerly await an event like this. Astrologically, an eclipse affects us depending on which house of our natal chart/horoscope the eclipse (this at 4 deg. 45 min. Aquarius) falls in. For instance, it falls on my 6th house of daily work and health, so I may expect major changes in those areas. They say, “forewarned is forearmed,” so now I can make preparations. That way, I am not to be totally blindsided if ever those changes occur. So where does this lunar eclipse in 4Aquarius45 fall in your natal chart?

 
CHANGES: Please take note of my new professional fees (PF). “The times, they are a-changin’.”- Bob Dylan

PLEASE LIKE THE PAGE, COMMENT, AND SHARE!

 
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) You have the gifts of magic, intuition, and independence. You do as you please without concern about what others think. And while that may be good on occasion, you’re better off being true to yourself AND being respectful of other people’s rights at the same time. Weekly mantra: What, me, selfish? Nooo. I am very people-centered.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Slow and steady progress is the type you cherish, and it shall be with you through your efforts this week. Your spirit is rising steadily on a positive curve although you still can’t see the obvious results. Patience is needed to manifest the best you yet. Weekly mantra: I trust in Divine timing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Whatever can calm your mind and enhance your mental concentration shall be your go-to technique. Find a place where you can’t be bothered as you gather your scattered energies in order to be whole again. Identify the distractions in your life and resolve to minimize them. Weekly mantra: I know my way and stay focused on my path.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) Don’t be fooled by someone who activates your emotions in a warm and fuzzy way. This person may be trouble. Otherwise, take your own risks, since we all know how tenacious you can be. Just be careful, though. A windfall of wealth may arrive. Weekly mantra: I trust my gut instinct.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Practice seeing beyond the masks that others wear. Instead of being condescending, start from a position of assuming that your people are the best and most spirit-filled. Match them action for positive action. You are the leader, so you certainly set the pace when you become the fine example to everyone. Weekly mantra: I see the good in others.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) Dear earth sign Virgo: you are truly blessed with stability, strength, security, and groundedness. Many people value your ability to tell it like it is. In the spaciness that spirituality may induce, help your allies not to get thrown off by life’s trials and tribulations. Be strong for them but encourage them to fight their own battles. Weekly mantra: I am solidly grounded for myself and others.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Before you take any action, first connect with your Higher Self. You are blessed with enlightenment, abundance, and success. You are a treasure, and you need to see yourself as such. Do not just give away your power or personhood. Your best assets are creativity and a loving heart. Weekly mantra: Everything I touch brings triumph.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) Follow the passions of your heart. By following your bliss, you will always have the inspiration and drive to fulfill your destiny. As you concentrate on your goals, the Universe will send you the right experiences and opportunities. So labor on with faith in your heart. Weekly mantra: As I follow my bliss, all doors open for me.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) OK, Doreen Virtue, the “angel lady”, has found Jesus since January 2017. She has abandoned her previous endorsement of angels and other new age things. Whether you believe in Jesus, angels, other gods, or no one at all, here’s the great news: you can always believe in yourself. That’s the bottom line. Just do you. Weekly mantra: I am love, light, and protection.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Let go of any emotional wounds you’re still holding on to. Otherwise, the love and compassion that are trying to get into your heart and soul will not flourish. Adopt an attitude of openness and the obstacles in your existing relationships will be lifted, making these more stable and secure. Weekly mantra: I release hurt and embrace love.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Prosperity and happiness are states of the mind. You hold on to the vision, do your part, and then watch the good luck, good fortune, and good health come in. So do your best to contribute your part to your own good fortune. Weekly mantra: As I am grateful for my blessings, the more of these flow into my life.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) It’s time to reach out and think beyond your own needs and wants. To whom do you need to be a good, true-blue friend at this time? Surely your friends have looked out for you consistently. Now one or two of them need your love and loyalty. Do not disappoint to keep the friendships two-sided. Weekly mantra: I am loyal and loving to people.

 
Thank you, Salamat, Namaste, and Blessed be!

Going beyond your Sun Sign: What’s your Astro Trio? ***By Stargazer Bles

First of all, to forestall any confusion, what’s a Sun sign?

 

Also known colloquially as one’s “horoscope,” your Sun sign is actually your zodiac sign, your birth sign or natal sign by virtue of the month and day when you were born. The Sun happened to be in a certain sign when the miracle of your birth happened, and that is your Sun sign. Basic character delineations can be read in the astrology classic, “Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs,” if you want to get to know the man, woman, child, boss, and employee, described for all the twelve signs.
However, we are now getting away from simple Sun sign astrology and moving into understanding our Moon sign and Rising sign (a.k.a. Ascendant) as well. While your Sun sign says a lot about your basic character or ego, your Moon sign describes your emotional landscape, or how you react to situations. Meanwhile, your Rising sign or Ascendant is your public persona, the face you show the world.
Therefore, how do we determine your Astro Trio composed of your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs?
If I were to find this out for you, I would need your complete date, time, and city of birth. The best source is your birth certificate; next best: mother’s memory if still sharp. The most practical TIP I can give you about the usefulness of the Astro Trio is this: Memorize your Astro Trio signs, so whenever you read daily or weekly horoscopes, don’t just read about your zodiac/Sun sign but your Moon and Rising signs as well. That way, you get 2-3 times the guidance, unless you’re a 3-for-1, like a sweet triple Pisces person that I know.

The next step in your Astro Trio journey is to get to know yourself better. Since you already know your Sun/Moon/Rising, find out what makes yourself tick. For example, here’s my Astro Trio: Sun in Aries, Moon in Pisces, Leo Rising (Ascendant). Based on what I know about the descriptions of each zodiac sign, I could form many sentences to describe myself. Let’s try one: I am a leader/pioneer but I feel like my heart is in pieces and oh, others see me as a snobbish AF diva. Another possible self-description based on my Astro Trio: I am competitive yet compassionate and generous. Isn’t this Astro Trio concept a fun gateway to learn more about yourself through astrology?

 

An exact time of birth also becomes imperative in determining the “real” Sun sign of someone born on the cusp, for example: someone born on Sept. 22 may be a Virgo or a Libra. Based on the natal details provided by the native, the real zodiac sign could truly be assigned. Either she is a Virgo, or else she is a Libra, but she couldn’t be both. Personally, though, I have observed many people born on the cusp who seemed to embody the traits of both signs they straddle. Hmmm… topic for more research? We’ll see.
So what did we learn in this article?
1. What a Sun sign is, plus synonyms like “horoscope (colloq.),” zodiac sign, birth sign, natal sign
2. For the basics of knowing character traits for all 12 signs, see “Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs”
3. Astro Trio = Sun + Moon + Rising signs and the need for accurate birth data.

4. Using simple key words from each sign of your Astro Trio,  you can build sentences to describe your basic character, emotional/feeling nature, and (if possible) how others perceive you.

 

5.Natives born on the cusp also need to provide accurate birth data because strictly speaking, they “cannot” be a blend of 2 signs: either she’s one or the other, not both at the same time.

Rx: Your Weekly Horoscope By Stargazer Bles @stargazer.bles

Please read this first:
Welcome, my friends! It’s good to know your Sun Sign, and that’s very basic, right? Of course you know if you’re a Scorpio or Leo or whatnot. But we are actually going beyond simple Sun Sign astrology and delving into our Moon Sign and Rising Sign/Ascendant as well. So what’s your Astro Triad?
I have my Sun in Aries, Moon in Pisces, Leo Rising. What about you? The reason I ask is that if you know your Sun-Moon-Rising and then read the horoscope below, you may actually get twice or thrice the guidance each week, depending on your Astro Triad. So for instance, therefore, I will read the forecast for Aries, Leo, and Pisces. Of course, nothing’s stopping you from also reading the forecast for your respective loved ones.
You can get your natal chart for free at http://www.astro.com and look up your Astro Triad from there. If you need help figuring it out, I’m here and I’m just a quick FB message away. With all that being said, let’s proceed to the crux of the matter.
For the week of August 7-13, 2017
Astro-event: On August 7th, we will experience the Full Moon in Aquarius and Lunar Eclipse along the Leo-Aquarius axis. Full Moons are a time of culmination of what was intended around 2 weeks ago. Those who own crystals and stones may want to consider charging their rocks under the light of that beautiful Full Moon. Symbolically, a Lunar Eclipse is about endings and new beginnings. One thing’s for sure: when you wake up the following morning after such an eclipse, you won’t be the same person anymore, mostly within your inner world and POV. You’ve heard it said in the metaphysical circles: let go of what no longer serves you. And that’s true. So travel light along the road of life and be prepared for the challenges ahead. Sabi nga nila: Change is coming.
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) If you feel stressed by having to be involved with various organizations and groups, then nip your commitments in the bud. Let go of those associations that no longer serve you. Find new allies who are more responsive to your current situation. Weekly mantra: I am worthy of collegial support and encouragement.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Career changes may be on your horizon. Build a base of stability and guard your reputation in the community. That’s easy if you apply the golden rule. Weekly mantra: I reap what I have sown.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You are encouraged to broaden your philosophical horizons at this time. Is it time to hit the books, travel via transportation or simply the mind? Whatever it is, keep on adding to your experiential wisdom. Weekly mantra: My powerful imagination is unlimited.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) This is a time of huge transformations for you. Touching deeply upon your emotions and shared resources, you are asked to reflect upon which way to go now and then to act decisively. Weekly mantra: I keep my emotions in check as I chart my future.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) This lunar eclipse urges you to let go of romantic relationships and/or business partnerships that no longer serve you. Prepare yourself for a new cycle of shades of light and dark. Weekly mantra: I am comfortable dwelling in the gray areas of life for the time being.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22) Your body may be reacting to all your current stresses, and so it’s acting up to your detriment. What’s bothering you? Entice your analytic mind to make sense of it, and then use that same mind to overcome your troubles. Weekly mantra: The power of my positive mindset restores my health and wellbeing.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Romance may hit a snag or two, yet your creative endeavors may actually herald a revival. While you’re occupied with creating and expressing your artistry, your heart expands and soon you can say that you’re ready again. Weekly mantra: I open my heart to joyous experiences that light up my life.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) Like the Tower card in the Tarot, there will be some shaking of the foundations in your life at this time. Yet you are no stranger to death and rebirth scenarios anyway, so it’s safe to say that after the rubble has cleared, you will still be standing – bruised and battered, maybe, but all the better for it. Weekly mantra: I transform like a Phoenix for my highest good.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) Strengthen your bonds with your siblings and make sure to reach out them, ask them if they need some help and support. Short travels and e-communication fly frantically back and forth. Keep your composure. Weekly mantra: I value my family ties.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Finances may be topsy-turvy, prompting you to embark on setting a realistic budget that you can implement. You also find that your values are under review. You just feel that some changes are in order. Weekly mantra: I align my value system and actions to live with integrity.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) The Full Moon is in your sign. The Lunar Eclipse (where the Earth’s shadow obscures the Moon) affects the way you regard yourself and your outer persona. Perhaps you need more confidence, experience, and connections. Well, if your brilliant personality has done its work, then expect positive changes soon. Weekly mantra: I live my life with selfless integrity.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) In the realm of the unknown and spiritual, you are supreme. It’s both your strength and your undoing. Therefore, this eclipse shakes up your inner Divine, and when you emerge, you would have found out that you’re stronger and able to carry out your life purpose. Weekly mantra: I transcend the nebulous to arise into the Definite.
Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be!
