2 of FIRE – Aries Decan i

SPRING EQUINOX – MARS RULES ARIES I – 2 of FIRE

March 20, 2019 marks the start of a new Solar year as the day and night become equal in length. This year our Equinox is marked by a Super Full Moon and input by Uranus at 0* Taurus. The Super Full Moon is the 4thand last of the Full Moons that have all been as close as the Moon gets to Earth, hence, the word Super. It will look Super sized, especially when it is rising as the Sun sets this Wednesday. Try to find a ridge top or hill where you have an unrestricted view of both the Sun to the West and the Moon to the East. It is a really special feeling to hold each of them in your upraised palms.

TAROT: 2 of Fire Tarot indicates the beginning of cooperative enterprises, I indicate this by two Bees…To bee or not to bee, is the question we must ask ourselves at this Starting line; what is it that we would most like to bee come this year?

ASTROLOGY: The First Decan of Aries this year sees the Moon at the zero point of Libra, indicating the ‘others’ or the collective of humanity, whereas the Sun, Ego, is at the zero Aries point, indicating the Self. There will be a choice to make about whom you wish to associate with, and to whom you focus your attention upon. Be sure to include plenty of self-care as well, so that you don’t drain your psychic reserves, now that Mercury is still retrograde in Pisces. You could be tempted to go overboard serving others.

Uranus is 150* degrees away from the Moon, sending a rather obsessive chaotic energy toward the masses of people on Earth. What will they be rising up about? With the tides super high it puts strain on Earth’s plate techtonics, so there may be some Earth moving going on.

This Decan the S node will conjunct both Pluto and Saturn, so there will be a bit of revisiting the past, especially about things that need to be transformed and new rules that must be laid out. This is so that the North node in Cancer can serve the higher good of all.

Look for interesting happenings around March 24 – 26th. You may not believe your eyes.

10 of Water – PISCES Decaniii – Happiness

10 of Water – Pisces Decan iii – March 9 – 19 – 9 KEYS TAROT

“Man’s search for Happiness can create a false sense of urgency, whereas the presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.” -me

When we are free to express ourselves and our quest for individuation is complete, what kinds of emotions will we see manifesting in our lives?

These are the questions that the third Decan of Pisces brings.  Typically, this card exemplifies the attainment of Emotion, which I interpret as ‘Happiness’. What emotion is on your mind right now? How do you see yourself going about attaining it?

Astrologically, we are in a rather confused state of energies as Mercury is retrograde until the end of the month, Mar 28. Uranus has just ingressed into Aries for the next 8 years, bringing chaos and sudden changes to the forefront of our frontal lobes. “Be prepared to be startled, yet learn to regroup after emotional shocks”, is the lesson ahead.

Neptune’s influence will create even more confusion about truth and lies, so remember to check your media sources carefully before jumping to conclusions. Learning to return to our core self, is a secret to remaining calm in the midst of chaos.

Learning self-soothing techniques, such as EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique or ‘tapping’ exercises may help you to confront overwhelming emotions and recenter yourself.

Try this link on YouTube; Nick Ortner has good video demonstrations of EFT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRfLTQjJhp0

The intelligence of this Decan is to learn to appreciate what good is present in the current moment. ‘Presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.’ Namaste’ ~K

JOURNAL PROMPTS: Planetary Mash-ups

JOURNAL PROMPTS for MARCH 6 – APRIL 23, 2019  LENT

Observant Jews have a practice that’s called ‘Counting the Omer’. It is a spiritual practice of counting the days between Passover and Shauv’ot that occurs in late Spring.

I devised these exercises on a similar context of using the planetary energies of the lower 7 spheres in the Kabbalah glyph; (beginning March 6 as the first day) just as Mercury goes Retrograde, for a time of reflection and renewal prior to Easter.

The JOURNALING practice helps us to experience the subtle differences of combined planetary energies with a Theme that we can consider, practice, write about and learn to embody. I hope that we can meditate on these energies for insight and listen for inspiration toward action we can take towards spiritual observation, purification & growth.

Have fun with these exercises; doodle, create symbols, ponder, dream and explore the concepts for greater self-exploration and insight! ~K

Mind is the Builder

“The Spirit is Life. The Mind is the Builder. The physical is the result.”  -Edgar Cayce, The Sleeping Prophet 1877-1945, edgarcayce.org

Minds is the Creative power that links us to the Great Creator, the Creative Cosmic Mind. Mankind was created above the animals but just below angels by our gift of thought. It is through our power of thought that we are creators of our realities. This is something that instinctive animals do not have; the power of reason, logic, the ability to pause and choose our reactions, the power of memory that serves to inform our consciousness and conscience. The power of Intellectual Thought comes through the evolutionary development of our brain size and capacity.
A drawback to thought is that thought depends on our perspective. Our perspective is shaped by our interpretation of past events and our programs. We are programmed to view the world in a specific way, based on our parents’ beliefs, our culture and accepted norms. Without questioning this initial programming, we are like robots operating on presets. It is our adult responsibility to check on the motivations and reasons that we were programmed in the first place and re-set our basic values, morality, and perspective to those universal virtues that provide equality, fairness and serve all of humanity.
Perspective forms and flavors Beliefs.
Beliefs lead to clear Understanding.
Understanding leads to right actions.
Right action is the way to a good life via good karma.
Karma works to attract to us that vibration with which we resonate.
Knowing yourself is the first step toward understanding everything~
We must encourage each other to be empowered to take responsibility for our own lives. Seek and you will discover. In discovering, you will be confused. By sorting out that confusion you will be amazed. And in that amazement, you will see the truth of things and you will know the truth of your Self;
You are a Divine Being having a Human Experience!

9 of Water – Pisces Decan ii

9 of Water – Fish

PISCES DECAN ii March 1 – 9 / TAROT 9 of Water: Conformity
Key Words #Cooperation #Indulgence #Pleasure #Conformity #Ideals
 
March 1 begins the pent-ultimate chapter in the Wheel of the Year. There are only two more Decans until the Spring Equinox, which begins a new Solar Year. So this month is mutable and creates space for many changes to occur!
ASTROLOGICALLY
March 1 Venus gladly enters Aquarius, after a month of configurations with Saturn and Pluto today’s square to Mars/Uranus is more positive and uplifting. Uranus provides the impulse for change and Mars lights it’s fuse. Consider it like early December, when you’re asked what you’d like for Christmas. You’re going to receive something, so are you going to ask for something you especially like or need? Get busy making wish lists and clearing space for the new to enter.
 
March 5, 2019 Mercury goes retrograde, causing us all to Rethink, Remodel, Renew our ideas and priorities. (I sure hope to get a boost in creativity like I usually do with retrograde Mercury, as this Winter seems to be hanging on longer than expected!) Mercury will be swimming upstream until March 28, 2019 so be sure to back up your pc’s and be ready for travel plans and meetings to meet with delays and snafus until then.
 
March 6, 2019 is a significant day, as Uranus moves into Taurus for the next 8 years. When Uranus moved into Aries on 11 March 2011, the Fukushima nuclear reactor began to melt down. Let’s hope whatever volcanos, earthquakes or landslides shake-up, they do it in unoccupied places and resolve quickly. Uranus affects the electric power-grid and Taurus represents the Earth, our comfort zone and pleasures. When they get together, we may see ‘electrified earth’. Whatever happens, I hope that the next few years will bring us legislation that protects our ENVIRONMENT!
 
March 6 is also the New Moon in Pisces, so the Sun and Moon, and this time, Neptune meet at 15* Pisces. This is a key degree, as it is right in the center of Pisces 30* house. Spirituality will be on the forefront as this occurs on the same day as chaos maker Uranus moves into a new home. It would be an ideal time for a world-wide collective prayer!
 
MARDI GRAS is March 5 and Ash Wednesday begins 40 days of Lent. I see Lent as a period for head to toe cleaning;
(Earth) Take time to do some Spring-cleaning and donate what you don’t use to someone who may need it. Start a diet and exercise routine. Fix things around the house and peruse your garden magazines.
(Water) Look at your relationships, especially the ones that are most intimate to you, to see how you function in this role. It’s a good time to set new boundaries and have gentle talks about topics that could improve. Be sure to give before you ask to receive.
(Fire) Next, try to take time to meditate on what your drives and motives are in life. When you can connect with your heart’s desires you can move along smoothly in the right direction and things will begin to go your way more easily. And lastly,
(Air) observe and purify your thinking. Try to catch yourself if you say things without thinking. Be mindful of what choices you make and what filters you have on the input you receive from outside sources.
 
TIPS By the time Easter rolls around, 6 weeks from now, you should have securely embedded new habits and practices in your life, if you are mindful now. The Universe is aligned for us to create new, hopeful thinking now, so take advantage of it!
 
VISUAL Think of a school of fish and how they swim in tight formation. They move in a collective way to protect one another, yet fall into the same nets together. There are times to act collectively, for large undertakings, yet we need to be mindful not to fall into routine thinking, just because it’s easy.# Namaste’ ~K

Chiron enters Pisces Decan i

8 of WATER  SATURN in PISCES  Planets at 0 -10* PISCES

Feb 19 – 28, 2019 9 KEYS TAROT BEAVER AND NET

Keywords for this first Decan in Pisces; #Emotional #Instinct #Creativity #Reminisce #Sorrow #Remembrances #Coping #Skills #Legacies #Changes #Intuition #Intellect #Integration #Growth

Decan Theme; Healing old psychological and physical wounds through forgiveness and releasing ties to the past, which are hurtful. It’s time to learn new skills and develop your talents. Remember our past and know that we are stronger together.

Planets and Transits;

The Sun enters Pisces on February 18th, which stirs our vital energy toward creativity, being flexible and compassionate. This sets up a period of emotional sensitivity.

The big news is that CHIRON enters the sign of ARIES, on Feb 18, 2019, EST which will affect wounds around our personal and collective IDENTITY as well as give the collective a new way to perceive how things are done. Chiron will be in Aries for about 8 years indicating the new ways of thinking and perceiving that are on their way.

Chironis a Centaur, half human and half horse, so he was part deity and part wild. He depicts our self-wounding and was revered as a great teacher of humanities. He was fathered by Zeus, as a horse, and born of a nymph, who wounded him by rejecting her half horse offspring. Chiron was adopted by Apollo, who taught him about medicine, music, philosophy, and prophecy. His lesson to us is about civilizing our wildness yet remaining powerful in order to share our hard-won wisdom with others.

Chiron went on to mentor sons of Greek Kings, including Jason of the Argo voyage, Asclepius, father of healing and medicine, Achilles and Hercules, famous warrior heroes who accomplished miraculous feats.

It’s interesting how Chi and Rho are also the symbols the Greeks used to indicate the name of Christ. You may have seen the symbol of the intertwined P and X on some churches. Christ and Chiron are the Archetypal wounded healers.

Saturn rules this Decan giving a somber approach to how we work collectively. We need to begin work that will pay off over time by dedicating ourselves to community works. As beavers tirelessly build their lodges, by placing one stick upon the other to construct a shelter against the elements, so we too, must decide how to build for the future. It’s a good time to begin a healthier lifestyle and dietary plan, lay plans for retirement or your legacy and deciding which trees you will plant this Spring.

We will have a Super Full Moon, because the Moon is at its closest to the Earth this year at 0* Virgo on February 19th. The Sun conjuncts Regulus, fixed star of Kings, during this Full Moon. Some may have delusions of grandeur that startle us into action now. If you wish to be noticed, start a business or perform on a reality show, now’s the time to do it.

Venus continues her negotiations with Saturn, on Monday the 18th, and then with Pluto on Saturday, the 23rd. She softens the harshness usually engendered by these, the elder philosopher and the tyrannical bulldozer driver. A change will come but it may be wearing velvet gloves.

General forecast; This Decan looks to be rather somber, with time for introspection and intimate conversations between friends and family. Be sure to tell your loved ones what they mean to you and make time to get together as often as you can. Share your life stories around the fire and pass on your wisdom to the young. Reminisce while listening to the music of your youth. The last time these planets were in similar configurations was 1968. Remember that? Blessings ~K

9 Keys Tarot – Killdeer – Aquarius iii

DECAN iii AQUARIUS, 7 of AIR, DISTRACTION, Feb 9 – Feb 18
Keywords for this third decan in Capricorn: #Distraction #Scattered #Deception #Vascilation #Trickery #Restoration #Recreation #Growth #Selection #Protection #Valentine #Chocolate #Endorphins
Decan Theme; Protection. You may feel ‘called’ to distract someone or something that challenges or endangers your ‘nest egg’ by doing a fancy dance that leads their interest away from your vulnerabilities like a parent Killdeer would do to protect its egg-filled nest. Establish healthy boundaries around the places you are feeling a bit exposed about now; back up your pc, set your security levels up a notch, establish a ‘do not disturb’ period in your day to recharge??
 
Planets and Transits in the Middle Decan from 21* – 30* Aquarius, Moon ruled. Check your natal chart for the placement of the Moon (signs Aries thru Leo) this Decan as well as planets that lie between 21* to 30* Aquarius and Leo and 21* -30* Taurus and Scorpio for spots of impact and activity.
 
This Decan begins with Mars squaring the North Node of the Moon on Saturday, February 9, 2019, signaling a push toward where we ‘ought’ to be heading. Listen to your intuition and see if you can pick up on newsworthy items that will hint at a new direction. Go a bit out of your comfort zone to meet up with new people!
 
Sunday, February 10 sees Mercury, the planet of communication and wit move into Pisces for an extended stay of 2 months (due to its retrograde beginning March 5). The director of Communications in the watery realms of mutable, sacrificial Pisces tends toward lots of compromises and back-peddling in negotiations. Oi vey!
 
Meanwhile, Venus is starting to ramp up her debate skills as confrontations with the outer planets begin Sunday, February 17th when the planet of desire is squelched as she moves to connect with Saturn, the old man of time and destiny. It feels like a young woman vs old man debate will be featured, possibly on Monday the 18th, as Mercury comes to its halfway point of 18* Pisces and we have two other starry body shifts that day; Chiron enters Aries, bringing our collective wounding to mind, and the asteroid Athena, women’s empowerment, turning backward. We may be looking back on the suffragette movement and the Equal Rights Amendment.
 
The Sun enters Pisces the evening of President’s Day, February 18th which stirs our vital energy toward creativity, being flexible and compassionate. This sets up a period of emotional sensitivity and a bit more tact than we’ve seen recently.
 
But the BIG NEWS this Decan is the meeting of Mars with chaos maker Uranus February 13 – 15. It looks like cupids arrow this year may actually be a TASER! Ouch. Possibilities for fireworks, violence, and volatility will bring us ‘truth bombs’. Uncomfortable realizations must be faced this week of St Valentine, the martyred saint who died for marrying persecuted lovers.
 
General forecast; Be forewarned, forearmed and ready to be forgiving! Put an extra effort into being shielded from the slings and arrows of outrageous dialogue and give everyone a generous helping of the ‘benefit of the doubt’ this Decan.
Have a bar of chocolate, (or five) midweek as you determine to not let the clowns get you down! #Endorphins 🙂

Metaphysical Me

About Metaphysical Me…

One of my most impactful experiences with spirituality/religion was being ‘failed’ from the second year of my three year Lutheran Catechism class. I told my minister and vicar that ‘God doesn’t fail people from church!’. They agreed with me and after a year’s sabbatical and the subsequent firing of this teacher who failed kids in church, I asked many pointed questions, finished my lessons, got confirmed and left.

In college, my most influential classes were the three-term Shakespeare series, learning how to SEE and draw from an artists viewpoint (that was quite esoteric) and an Introduction to Comparative Religions. Then I took a term off and studied with Mormon missionaries, read the Bhagavad-Gita, Tibetian and Egyptian Books of the Dead, the Tao te Ching, and many other metaphysical books. This lit my Spiritual Fire and I’ve been devouring these books ever since!

(See recommended book list) —> Archives

Later, upon becoming a Unitarian Universalist, I had the opportunity to learn more about many religions and experience them firsthand in “Neighboring Faiths” Sunday school classes. After teaching students for 8 weeks, I accompanied groups of children to Buddhist center feasts, Catholic mass, a Jewish temple, and Pagan ceremonies. Over the years my family has participated in Kwaanza, Hindu Festival of Lights, and Hanukkah festivities.

I homeschooled my kids for 8 years founded on a History-based Wholistic education, of which I wrote my own curriculum. I based my lessons and exams on textbooks from various points of view and encouraged open-minded discussions about the reasons for the author’s points of view and their veracity. We first studied World Geography & World Religions as a comprehensive introduction to becoming ‘Citizens of the World’.

As homeschoolers, we practiced exercises by Rudolf Steiner and read Classic English literature, Great Books, Historic Fiction and books of Cultural Literacy from all continents. We read ancient philosophers and discussed their subsequent roles in modern society.

I was engaged with esoteric studies for many years before co-leading a Women’s spirituality group. We incorporated many facets from various spiritual traditions, and each woman encouraged to bring her gifts and experiences to share with the group.

After leaving that position, my 10-year interest in the Kabbalah, led me to study more intently and take a year-long webinar class with two Rabbis. I learned much about the Hebrew Mystical traditions from a Jewish Reform perspective. I found the Kabbalah to be THE foundation for the many esoteric paths I had studied since my 20’s.

Today I practice Tai chi, Chi Gong, Kundalini Yoga and write ‘Morning Pages’ as is recommended by Julia Cameron in her transformational book, “The Artist’s Way”. I participated and led classes in “The Artist’s Way” and discovered that it was a book written (by and) for the Enneagram Type #4 personality, the ‘Artist’. That’s when I decided to create workbooks for the other 8 Enneagram personality types that I call, “Integrated Spiritual Practices”. TBA

I’ve studied and used the Tarot as well for many years. I started noticing the esoteric ‘threads of Truth’ that run throughout all the systems and traditions that I’ve engaged with and noticed their Archetypes can be found in pictoral symbolism on the Tarot.

I’ve created a unified system that is based on a lesser-used form of the Tree of Life Glyph. I see it as the original glyph of Kabbalah before the ‘fall’ of man. I have placed my own version, the “9 Keys Tarot” cards onto this Tree in a unique way as a blueprint to help people ascend to their Higher Self – closer to a state of Spiritual perfection. This corresponds to 9 Esoteric systems, which is no small feat!

Metaphysics describes both the ‘Art of Living’ & the ‘Science of Life.’      I hope that my writing will encourage you to look within yourself and begin what Plato called, “The Great Work” of personal understanding and wisdom. After all, it’s our once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn, grow and evolve our Souls while we are incarnate beings. Look within!

Namaste’ ~K

DECAN 2 AQUARIUS – HUMMINGBIRD – 6 OF AIR

The 9Keys Tarot features a flurry of Hummingbirds buzzing around a nectar filled potion bottle feeder…

HUMMINGBIRD – 6 of AIR – ALCHEMY – Jan 30 – Feb 8

Keywords for this second decan in Capricorn: #Curiosity #Magic #Change #Obsession #Inspiration #Investigation #Alchemy #Journey #Insight #Mercury #Freedom #Flight #STAR #StarQuality #Recognition #Awards #Cazimi #Blessings #Aquarius #Air

Planets and Transits in the second Decan from 11*- 20* Aquarius;

Dates of Import: Jan 1 Mars squares Pluto –Images of Warlords, Activists, and Judges meeting up to decide hard truths under this energy. Perhaps conversations go deeper than usual now? What is the motivation behind the decision? Are precedents being set? Why? Discussions can easily turn sour as debate becomes uncivil. Mercury in Aquarius wants the freedom to fly in the direction of one’s choosing. As an aside, the Manafort Trial will be underway in the US, so watch as planetary disruptors sneak their way into the spotlight.

Venus enters Capricorn – On Sunday, Jan  3 Mars aligns with Eris, asteroid/goddess of discord, as Venus enters the sign of Capricorn. No faint, hothouse flower here, she comes in ‘Warrior mode’ to right wrongs of injustice all month long. Let’s hope her shields hold.

New Moon Jan 4 at 15* Aquarius – Monday, Jan 4 we see the critical point of Aquarius activated with a New Moon! This is the best time to set intentions for change, freedom and BIG DREAMS! Give voice to whatever lights your ‘inner fire’ and send your energy out into the world to make it happen! Dare to be the STAR of your own Life! ~Unusual ideas, rebellion, freedom, eccentricity reigns now like a Mardi Gras King. Look for new friends who embrace the ‘unusual’, like Astrology, and you will be delighted!

The Tarot of 9 Keys 6 of Air card features a dozen Hummingbirds feeding on sweet potions and nectars of ambrosia. This is the time to claim your Spiritual birthright and reclaim your native powers of discernment, efficacy, tact, and diplomacy so that you can slide right up to the podium for recognition as a STAR while the chaos rages around you. Picture the chaos of an Academy Award announcement while a fight breaks out in the crowd. You will still walk up to the podium to claim the reward you’ve earned, but your “Thank you speech” may not be heard. Think of a hobbit diving under the legs of a strongman as he is pursued…make your well-timed getaway, or realize the WISHES you’ve been desiring for a long time. This is the energy of the Hummingbird. The flurry of brightly colored wings will deflect negativity from you as you deftly claim your prize.

Astrological changes this decan: Mercury rules this decan that starts out with the Moon in Sagittarius, bringing a philosophical bent to the day, which is followed by the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune. “Making dreams real” can be the motto of this year’s decan. Mercury will be in Aquarius so thoughts have a ring of the unusual, and are specially charged due to Mercury’s Cazimi position to the Sun on Jan 29. Mercury acts as a Trickster as he runs up to steal the Sun’s glory, he is hidden for a moment, but then appears on the other side of the Sun, hands full of blessings, and brings us gifts of genius proportion. Prometheus would be proud to call Mercury his son. New inspirations that you’ve received lately should be followed up on NOW! Odds are in your favor for Success!! But act quickly to implement your plan as challenges are on the horizon.

When I say ‘Now’ I mean immediately as Venus enters February in Sagittarius conjunct to the major benefic, Jupiter, but leaves this lap of luxury for the stone-cold bench of Capricorn, which is in turmoil, in case you haven’t noticed. The structures that have supported us are crumbling, and Venus, the planet of desire and comfort will be doing ‘Super-Woman’ work all month. Be prepared to have freshly ironed capes in reserve.

Overall Message: Strike while the iron is HOT! Take and make opportunities to socialize, make strategic plans to achieve your goals and enjoy the relative quiet this decan brings. Look for little things to brighten your day. Pay attention to intuitive hints and keep them in your pocket.
