The Star

Meaning: In many cultures, the Star is a symbol of hope, dreams and destiny, and in the Witches Runes this symbol has a similar connotation. When the Star rune appears, it’s green light for you to go after what you want.

Note that the Star does not say you’ll get everything you want without any work. No. This symbol is a not about easy success, but about having faith in what you are doing – and doing it. In fact, the goals suggested by the Star are usually the highest and most significant ones – the ones that are hardest to get. It does not matter what the dream is, but its significance in your life. This symbol also represents ideals, and they can be both individual and collective ones.

In a more down-to-earth way, the Star is related to revolutions, changes, risks, speculation and all things motivated by faith and ideals. It can represent a sudden spark on inspiration, a windfall, a sudden rise to fame or a promotion. Though the sudden changes brought by the Star are usually positive, they are also fast: you can get back to point zero as quickly as you rose. So don’t be afraid to jump forward when the opportunity arises.

The Star urges you to take the risk, to have hope and to trust. After the staleness of Crossroads, the Universe finally begins to move again. If you believe in Higher Powers, this symbol shows that They are guiding you in this moment. The Star is a very positive rune, but in a more negative context it can represent revolution for revolution’s sake and the constant idealization of people and situations. It can also stand for excessive individualism when going after a dream.

In relationship readings, this rune represents hope and an idealistic kind of love. Usually the people involved in the relationship have high expectations about the other. They easily put their partner on a pedestal, only to feel frustrated when reality strikes. The Star can also represent unrequited love, or the love for someone who is unattainable. On the other hand, this rune tells you to not give up love entirely – keep looking, because someone is coming.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for August 15th is The Hermit

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Hermit



The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can learn or teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid an overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 16th

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

The cosmic winds shift as energetic changes free us from the status quo. We can move beyond our fears to embrace the future once the Moon moves from conservative Capricorn into radical Aquarius at 7:52 am EDT. Anything is possible as ingenious solutions appear out of the blue now that the radiant Sun trines brilliant Uranus. Previously self-imposed limitations disappear, enabling us to rethink old problems and see them in an exciting new light.

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

Sometimes you gung-ho Rams can’t tell the difference between assertion and aggression. However, your steady persistence is rewarded today because it counterbalances the progressive Sun-Uranus trine which blasts you clear into the future. An odd mixture of strategic planning and impulsive reactions can positively influence your work and help you reach your professional goals. Success doesn’t just come and find you; you must go out and get it.

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

Innovation and common sense work in tandem today. The Sun’s harmonious trine to independent Uranus in your 12th House of Fantasy sets your imagination free. Out-of-the-box solutions to stubborn problems empower you to untangle knots in your progress or raise your awareness to new levels of understanding. Unfortunately, all your brilliant concepts are useless now if you don’t have the means to make them real. Nevertheless, if you want to achieve your dreams bad enough, you’ll find a way rather than an excuse.

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

It requires courage to reveal your vulnerability instead of just showing off the clever side of your personality. The bighearted Leo Sun, shining in your 3rd House of Communication, motivates you to take chances and talk about your feelings, especially now that it’s forming a liberating trine to spontaneous Uranus. Honesty can sometimes be a double-edged sword, but it’s easier to build a solid foundation when you come straight from your heart. It takes time to build trust, but it’s an essential ingredient in any type of relationship.

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

You can straddle the divide between caution and risk today by discovering and applying previously untapped talents and abilities. However, the creative Sun in your 2nd House of Self-Worth forms a supportive trine with Uranus, encouraging you to take chances in your professional life. This is your moment to shine; the cosmos is empowering you to be boldly innovative and break out of your familiar shell. As Robert Kennedy said, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

Allow yourself as much freedom to dream as you can today. Temporarily letting go of responsibilities gives you the space you need to see your life in a fresh new light. The unconventional Sun-Uranus trine opens your mind, creating an ideal time to release your old self-image, making way for a more amazing version of you with a more adventurous future. Learning to fly looks harder from the ground. Jump and your wings will appear.

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

Although your thoughts are truly brilliant now, people may not be able to understand what you’re saying unless you simplify your concepts. Instead of rushing ahead in a flurry of words, slow down and explain everything methodically. Although a thrilling Sun-Uranus trine opens doors that were previously locked, it’s still up to you to be careful so you can make the most of this more permissive environment. Today is an opportunity that vanishes tomorrow; don’t waste one moment second-guessing yourself.

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

You’re hesitant to come out and say what’s on your mind today because you’re worried about people misunderstanding your intentions. Although you might send subtle signals of interest to someone so you won’t be noticed by others, your actions may be more obvious than you think. Luckily, a stroke of genius suddenly reveals a way for you to break free of an unpleasant situation as the Sun trines rebellious Uranus in your 7th House of Others. For once, it’s better to say too much now than nothing at all.

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

It’s as if a lightning rod is attracting unexpected events and encouraging radical behavior at work. Although this cosmic interference might normally be disturbing, the Sun’s superconductive trine to electrifying Uranus is thrilling as it lights up your mind with original answers to existing questions. But don’t waste this energy on attention-seeking antics; keep your ego in check and just do your job to the best of your ability. Success can be yours if you don’t become arrogant or expect everything to fall your way. Humility is your friend.

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

Don’t wait for someone else to rush in and save the day today. The dramatic Leo Sun’s trine to radical Uranus calls for bold action that produces both emotional and financial rewards. Although you may be inspired by the vibrant Leo Sun’s presence in your 9th House of Big Ideas, its awkward aspect to wounded Chiron leaves you uncertain about the value of your actions. Fortunately, your amazing ideas are the proof of the pudding if you trust in yourself. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

There is chemistry at work today if you’re open to the spontaneity of the moment. Collaborating closely with a creative partner sparks contagious excitement and fascinating ideas while the willful Sun in your 8th House of Shared Resources trines brilliant Uranus. Make sure to record your conversations for future use or the genius of the moment could be lost into space forever. As Dante wrote, “He listens well who takes notes.”

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

You can take giant leaps over huge hurdles while the confident Sun in creative Leo forms a mind-opening trine with revolutionary Uranus. When you devote your heart and head to a cause, the obstacles you encounter are no match for the strength of your convictions. You’re ready to carve out a unique path into the future that fully expresses your originality. This cosmic wake-up call releases you from doubt and drudgery today, clearing the way for others to follow in your pioneering footsteps.

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

It’s as if you struggled up a mountain, arrived at the summit, and now finally enjoy an unobstructed view of the future. Your illusions are shattered by lightning bolts of awareness that awaken you from a foggy sleep. You can suddenly see the truth and are eager to apply your newfound passion to making something wonderful happen. Although you feel the exhilaration of the radiant Sun’s trine to wild Uranus, you also realize how much work still lies ahead. Seek out new experiences, but proceed with caution, so you don’t do anything you’ll soon regret.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 15

happy-birthday-cake

If Today is Your Birthday: August 15

You have cleverness and versatility that allow you to understand just about anything. Yours is a youthful spirit, with a mischievous streak, not only in youth but throughout life! As intelligent as you are, you see so many possible paths to take that it can be challenging focusing on just one. You share your fun-loving spirit through your sense of humor and unique ideas. You love to solve problems, and you may have marked writing or speaking ability. Your ability to solve problems is next to none. With your need to find wisdom in whatever you do and see, you are inclined to build up a strong personal philosophy. You are quite idealistic about people and about love, so you should watch for expecting too much from a partner. You can be quite sensitive to the mood swings of a partner.  Famous people born today: Ben Affleck, Julia Child, Princess Anne, Jennifer Lawrence, Natasha Henstridge, Tess Harper, Joe Jonas.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

However, because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune in your Solar Return chart this year, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

Emotions are powerful this year and need expression. You might feel especially stifled or stagnant if you don’t feel comfortable enough in your friendships and other personal relationships to discuss how you feel.

There can be a strong focus on harmonizing and cooperating this year, but you’re also redefining what you want and need from your relationships. You could be discovering new ways to relate, and putting difficult patterns of relating behind you. You might also come to important revelations regarding your approach to money and business.

There can be increased popularity with the public or audiences if you perform in some way, or if you present or publish. Charm levels are strong. You can also be especially busy with meetings, errands, and communications in the year ahead.

You are attracted to all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.

This is a year of new beginnings and turning points. Your social life can be especially interesting, and your need for freedom to be yourself is pronounced in your relationships. You could find that what and who you value changes or becomes clearer this year, and goals can very well adjust along with these discoveries. Permanent alliances can be formed during this period of your life.

2015 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2016 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 15th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

It can be a good day for bumping into the right person or coming across information that furthers work or health interests, dear Aries. There can be nice opportunities to make valuable contacts through work or pursuing daily routines. You can have an overwhelming interest in expressing your values through your everyday life, and your work ethic is strong right now. As Jupiter nears the end of its transit of your work and health sector, take advantage of opportunities to advance your interests in these areas of life. There can be some difficulties with focusing on chores done around the home today, however, as divided interests can be a distracting factor.

Taurus

Taurus

Meeting people who make you feel good about yourself or who encourage you to express your more affectionate or creative side can figure strongly now, dear Taurus. Ideally, the last few days have brought you into closer touch with your expectations in your relationships, even if this was a tricky process. You can now use this to your advantage – knowing what or who you want makes things a little easier. There can be advances in the areas of creativity, romance, or hobbies now and this week. Connections might be made that advance your personal interests, and especially the more heartfelt ones. This can be a good day for feeding your spirit with exciting experiences or new studies.

Gemini

Gemini

You’re inclined to entertain unusual emotions and longings today, dear Gemini. In fact, it’s a good time to get in better touch with desires and needs that may be laying just below the surface of things – these are significant urges in your life that you may not always acknowledge. It can also be an active period for coming to a better feeling of harmony with family or beauty and peace in the home environment. This drive is an important one in the coming weeks as well as today. New information or contacts can motivate you to make improvements and positive changes. Even so, there is some tendency to dilly-dally today, as time can be wasted questioning where to put your energies.

Cancer

Cancer

People you meet or information that comes in today can help point you in the direction of positive growth and change, dear Cancer, particularly on the lines of communication, transportation, learning, teaching, and studies in general. There can be a happy feeling that you can accomplish a challenge along these lines, and a sense that you’re moving forward. As Jupiter nears the end of its yearlong transit of your communications sector, be on the lookout for opportunities to make connections and to learn new things. Things that keep you connected, such as phones, computers, or even bicycles and cars, can also figure strongly or see improvements now.

Leo

Leo

This is a generally good day for work and business, dear Leo, although there can certainly be some distractions to deal with. You might come across someone who helps you achieve your goals, or points you in the right direction of growth and advancement. Advice about money or business can be valuable today. You might find that you’re increasingly more business-minded and focused on producing and building these days. In fact, as Jupiter nears the end of its yearlong transit of your resources sector, and as we come closer to a Solar Eclipse occurring in this same area of your solar chart, it would benefit you greatly to give it your all when it comes to a particular talent, skill, or a business endeavor in the coming weeks.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

This is a good day for public relations or simply for positive feedback, dear Virgo. Your personality shines and others may especially enjoy being around you. You are inclined to take the lead and call the shots in some way, and you might enjoy steering people in the right direction through the sharing of helpful information or advice. There is generosity in your approach. The weeks ahead are very important for coming into your own, selling yourself, and reinventing yourself if you feel the need for a change. There is also positive creative energy coming your way today, and finding new or renewed ways to express yourself can be rewarding.

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

This is a good time for seeing the benefits of putting certain bad habits behind you, dear Libra. It’s also a strong time for healing and efforts to renew health and energy. A positive attitude tends to have the effect of moving obstacles out of your way – at the very least, the self-imposed barriers. While it’s always important to keep a healthy work-life balance, this is a special time for some level of solitude and for you to get to know your inner needs. Jupiter is nearing the end of its yearlong transit of your privacy sector, and is approaching its yearlong transit of your sign, and the coming weeks are especially important for identifying those attitudes that no longer serve you well.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

There could be a new connection made now, dear Scorpio, which may come on suddenly but which nevertheless feels right. Something or someone could inspire you to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan, and you are beginning to see that these things are doable. A friendship may feel more hopeful, and a relationship can benefit from improvements and refinements. In the past few days, you may have discovered other levels or definitions of what you need from people in your life, as well as what you are willing to give, and this clarity benefits you greatly, particularly today and this week.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

You have an incredible sense of what people want these days, dear Sagittarius, and this can really help you out on a professional level, particularly if you’re involved with sales, marketing, or promotional work. Even if these are not your fields, you can promote yourself and your interests quite successfully now. Fortunate connections could be made now. You may be bringing more beauty, artistry, or charm to your professional life. You might also be finding work more pleasurable, and/or people are finding you particularly pleasing and appreciating what you do.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is a great time to travel, to seek out adventure, or otherwise expand your horizons, dear Capricorn. Jupiter is nearing the end of its yearlong transit of the sector of your solar chart that rules these things, and the coming weeks are active for opportunities along these lines. There is more openness in your connections with others right now, and you can be particularly effective at teaching, guiding, and sharing ideas with people right now. Others are opening up to your ideas and your unique outlook. You may be taking more personal risks and losing some self-consciousness now. People coming into your life now tend to boost your self-image and serve to open your mind to new experiences and ideas.

Aquarius

Aquarius

You might have the opportunity to collect on a debt or pay off one now, dear Aquarius. It’s a good time to make contacts who help you manage money or who readily support you. You may be able to draw upon resources you never knew you had. This is a time for a “soft sell” approach – the expression that you catch more bees with honey applies right now. Your natural enthusiasm and charm are probably enough to sell a good idea or plan. Some of you could be bringing a deeper level of intimacy into your relationships, or attracting people who open you up to new ways of relating.

Pisces

Pisces

You are looking to feel more alive, vital, and vibrant through other people or relationships these days, dear Pisces, and with Venus in your relationship sector in alignment with the Moon’s Node, you may very well attract loving people into your experience. Alternatively, you may be gaining support or enhancing an existing connection. People tend to point you in the direction of growth and improvement. Your sense of how relationships work improves, and it’s these subtle details that make the difference. You are especially attractive to others now, and you could have the opportunity to show yourself in the best light.

If there’s an emotionally charged situation brewing, you’ve got the perfect opportunity to clear the air. You’ll feel better and it’ll leave you feeling more secure than ever about your relationship.

  • Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

    With Venus in your partnership sector until August 29, you’re in a gorgeous position to improve your love life and cherish the person you’re with.

Inspiration for the Week – There Has Never Been a Time When You Were Alone

Inspiration for the Week – There Has Never Been a Time When You Were Alone

The Gabriel Message Card for this Week:

There has never been a time when you were alone, no matter how you felt.

As we evolve into true multidimensional beings, there are times when we are feeling empty, disconnected and even abandoned. This can usually mean we are about to take a leap in energy to a greater expression of ourselves. As intriguing as that sounds, it can be profoundly uncomfortable.

We are in a powerful time that is encouraging us to liberate ourselves from our old ways of being. There are shifts in energy occurring within us that are requiring us to have the faith and trust enough to let ourselves expand into new aspects of life, even when they are unknown to us.

These feelings of disconnection are the indicators that we are about to move into a more expanded level of being, just as electricity in a house needs to be shut off in order for new wiring to be put into place.

Finding a place of neutrality and balance within us during times of outward upheaval becomes vitally important to our well-being. If we try to protect ourselves by contracting energetically in the face of challenging frequencies, we can feel as though we are cut off from our Soul and its guidance system. For me, this causes all sorts of old fear patterns to surface.

If I allow myself to run the chaotic energy I see in the world through my energy system, a downward spiral can develop which leaves me feeling overwhelmed and alone. It is in these times that this Gabriel Message just seems to fall out of the set of cards, reminding me of the truth of my existence — that I am always receiving God’s love, that I am never alone, and that my connection to Source energy is only a breath away. It is only when I start to breathe more deeply and slow down that I can actually feel more alignment with my Source energy.

When I feel confusion and sense of disconnection, it’s my clue to surrender to the process of realignment that is going on within me, rather than trying in vain to find the old connections that no longer exist.

We are moving into new levels of consciousness very quickly now. The faster I let go of the old ideas about how I am progressing, the easier it is on my nervous system. No matter how hard I try to box them into old forms, the energy connections are very different in feeling. I am being inspired and guided in new ways that can change moment to moment. It is a powerful opportunity to learn to treat myself with loving-kindness and to trust more.

Everyone is experiencing this opening in their own way, so our ability to stay neutral and balanced in our heart is extremely important.The consciousness of the Earth and all those living upon her is expanding and becoming more filled with Light. Whatever is not in alignment with this expansion is showing up to be transmuted.

The good news is that we are being inspired and guided through this process of expansion by Divine Love, eternally caring for us, always present, offering all that we need to fulfill our Soul’s purpose in every moment. And we are never alone, no matter what we think about it.

Divine Presence,

Thank you for inspiring me in resourceful ways to stay balanced within myself through times of spaciousness, as well as times of upheaval. Help me to remember that there is a Greater Power working within me as I expand to allow the new frequencies of Light to be present within my human form. As I continue to stay in Alignment with my Source energy, help me to stay grounded and gracefully release old patterns that may be surfacing. I offer all that I am, all that I do and all that I say to Divinity working in and through my being, now and always. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages Book #28

There has never been a time when you were alone, no matter how you felt.

Dear One,

If you only knew how much you are loved and cared for, you would see your life in a different light. There are Angels who have been with you since your birth, and some from before your birth who have been with you for eons of time. These Angels are here to bless you, to protect you, to care for you, and to love you as you walk your earthly journey.

You have only to turn within and you will find us. You have only to look around you, and you will find Angels manifested in different forms everywhere, giving love to you.

Open your mind and heart to receive this love and you will find miracles manifesting in your life. It is this willingness to receive that allows miracles to occur for you.

In your darkest hours we have been there. It is not that the Angels are here to take away your pain or your lessons learned through experience. The Angels are here for you to turn to in those hours of need. We are here to assist you so you will have the courage to go on, and find peace within your heart. You are on this planet to learn and to choose between the darkness and the light. Even if you choose darkness, there are Angels who will neither forsake you nor leave you. However, if you choose darkness you will feel very alone, and life will be a continuous struggle.

If you choose Divine Light, the Angelic voices are raised in magnificent rejoicing and all manner of assistance, seen and unseen, will be there to illuminate your path. Choosing to live in the light can simply mean to turn over your burdens and struggles to a Higher Power, and to ask the Angels to assist you in finding your way to peace, happiness and prosperity. These are the qualities of God in which you are meant to live.

Choosing Light means praying for the Divine Presence to fill you to overflowing with love and peace. It means taking the time to visualize your self filled and surrounded by light, and even drinking in the Divine Light in order to nourish your heart and soul. Not only will this affect your mental and emotional state, but your physical body will also benefit.

The Angels are God’s messengers. We live in the Light. All the forces of good in the Universe are here to assist you so you too can live in the Light and find peace and happiness within yourself. It is up to you to ask to know this as truth in your life. Open your mind and heart to receive all the love that is here for you right now. Remember your message from Archangel Gabriel for today:

There has never been a time when you were alone, no matter how you felt.

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast for August 14 – 20

Weekly Forecast: August 14 – 20, 2016

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity.  Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto).  And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path.  It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTEThere are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast: August 14 – 20, 2016

8/14 ~ Venus (relationships) ~oppose~ Neptune (illusion):

Beware of delusions of grandeur where your relationships (old and new) and/or your finances are concerned. Basically, you should keep your true priorities in mind and you will be fine, but if you are deluded to any extent, it may be revealed at this time. It is time to balance what is truly important to you in you interactions with others and the vision for the long-term goal. You can have an ideal romantic experience with this energy, but remember true love takes hard work & dedication, while romance tends to come and go. This energy tends to make you give and give and give in a relationship thinking that will inspire the other to respond in kind, and ultimately you end up empty-handed because your motives weren’t correct, you were doing it with expectation (consciously or not), which almost always will let you down. Giving with any expectation always leads to disappointment. A better use of this energy is to focus on unconditional love, altruistic endeavors and anything artistic.

8/16 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination and taking action on your own behalf. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve what is useful and release that which is no longer relevant for you going forward. It’s also a good energy for organizing & clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with (or released altogether). You may be feeling very practical, possibly selfish, but it’s actually self-preservation.

8/17 ~ Venus (values, relationships & resources) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):

Anytime Pluto’s involved the intensity levels go up and you are able to hear/feel your SoulSelf more clearly than usual. Venus brings up that which is most important to you personally, your individual values & priorities, where your relationships & resources are concerned. This is an easy angle, making purification & transformation smoother than usual too. So, what are you ready to change? How have your values & priorities changed completely in the last year or so? Use this activation to deepen your connection with those you love most and allow the relationship to evolve to a totally new level. If you’re working on your relationship with money or self-worth specifically, this activation is a good time for prayer or ritual that supports positive change and your vision for the future. Pour any intense emotions or revelations into art of any medium or do a vision board, but give expression to the depths you recognize as coming to the surface of your consciousness.
