FEED YOUR SUN TO ENHANCE YOUR LIFE FORCE AND TO FEEL STRONG, HAPPY, ENERGIZED

FEED YOUR SUN TO ENHANCE YOUR LIFE FORCE AND TO FEEL STRONG, HAPPY, ENERGIZED

Feeding and Energizing Your SUN!
Feeding and Energizing Your SUN!

The Sun Sign is like a key which enables us to turn it to reach a particular channel of consciousness that vitalizes our essence physically, mentally and spiritually.  A weak Sun enables us to fall apart easily, feel physically weak, disoriented and depressed.  We need the Sun, the Light to energize our heart–our spirit here. When our Sun is healthy we feel strong and able to handle the challenges of life.  We should each know what it is that nourishes us and helps us feel our own power—and astrology can help us.  We should know and study the sign of our Sun and that’s the reason for today’s post!

I will list each Sun sign and a line or two about what you need to nourish your body, mind and soul to keep yourself healthy and energized—we should know how to feed our Sun; how to bring more Light into our body, mind and spirit so that we can feel happy here!

The Sun is thought to be Male energy—the animus as Jung called it.  Our Sun is our Life Force (as above, so below)–it’s our Prana and it helps us with our creative expression here.  More basically it is what produces our will to live and so we should know how to nourish it.

Nourishing (feeding) our Sun is what helps us to feel confident and it is different for each of us, based on our birth data. 

Almost everyone knows their Sun sign but if you don’t, I will include the list of signs with dates below.  This list isn’t intended to be all inclusive—this is just off the top of my head so-to-speak mentioning some of the key points that come to mind about each Sun which my own Libra Sun needs to do in order to feel energized an purposeful i.e. “relating”.  Anyway, here we go…

Aries2SUN IN ARIES (born March 21 – April 20)

You need fire and to express courage and a pioneering spirit and be out front or first in anything you do.  Any activity that encourages such things will feed your Sun and help your life force sparkle and shine brighter.  You need excitement and to try new things—as many as you can even if you don’t follow up with everything you start, you need those exciting “new starts” often and in some form in order to feed your Sun and help you feel confident and alive .

Taurus

SUN IN TAURUS (born April 21 – May 20)

You need earth and to express your very practical ideas in any way that you can.  You are good at handling resources and expressing this skill helps you to feed your life force and feel confident.  When you work with money/finances you shine just like you do when you express your strong tastes in creating beauty with earth resources.  When you care for your physical needs and comforts, you energize your body, mind and spirit.

Gemini2

SUN IN GEMINI (born May 21 – June 21)

You need air, mental, thought to energize your sense of dualism—and when you can hold two views at the same time or unite two sets of opposites, this helps you to feel confident and powerful.  When you allow yourself to use your natural born gift of observation and combine that with words in any way—shazam, you are really rocking and feeling your light grow brighter.  Mental stimulation in any way, shape or form energizes you and when you talk about things this too helps body, mind and spirit unite—expressing yourself does it for you and helps you feel vital and alive.

Cancer2

SUN IN CANCER (born June 22 – July 22)

Water, emotions and security are the key words here that feed this Sun and help people in this sign feel strong and vital. Home, family and tradition and things to do with the past help you feel a sense of purpose that enlivens your body, mind and soul.  Building a sense of home and doing that groundwork for that purpose feeds your sun and helps you feel more powerful, confident and alive – you take the past and create a self-image from that making an identity that helps you feel more yourself. When you care for others and protect and nurture them, this feeds your own Sun—your life force.  If you don’t use your deep feelings to care for others, you feel more vulnerable and loose energy; however, if your home or security are threatened this enables you to find your Sun and call upon your own natural inner strength making you aware of it and this ultimately enables you to feel more alive, confident and purposeful.

Leo2

SUN IN LEO (born July 23 – Aug 22, 23)

This person needs fire, passion and awareness of self and feels enlivened when in any kind of central position or at the core of anything that is going on.  If this type of individual is not feeling popular with others, it can dampen the spirit and it’s like put a blanket over their life force.  The person born under this Sun will feel the need to reach the pinnacle of achievement in some area but must also remember to have fun so that work and pleasure are in equal measure—if not, the life force depletes and the Sun is not being fed.  There is a susceptibility to flattery from others until this individual can learn how to nourish their own Sun by self-acceptance and true self-awareness.

Virgo2

SUN IN VIRGO (born August 23, 23 – September 22, 23)

Humility, compassion and modesty and an urge to be of service and make a significant difference in the world in a hands-on and grounded way that is practical and useful; this is what feeds and nourishes the body, mind and spirit of those born under the Virgo Sun.  Other Sun signs can take advantage of the service oriented Virgo nature who likes to work behind the scenes.  Satisfaction comes from giving attention to details and by pursuing a natural interest in healing—those activities feed the Virgo Sun helping this individual feel confident and vital.

Libra2

SUN IN LIBRA (born September 23, 24 – October 22, 23)

The emphasis here is on non-self or the ‘other’ and on anything air related such as writing, speaking and in any way ‘relating’.  When the person born under this sign is uniting with others in some way there comes a feeling of wholeness and balance and harmony.  A person born under this Sun has a consideration of other people’s feelings, such as even if this person is expressing anger it is on behalf of another rather than self.  The Libra soul really has a strong need to justice and fair play and working for the benefit of others is what enables this soul to be energized and feel confident and vital.

Scorpio2

SUN IN SCORPIO (born October 23, 24 – November 22)

The person born under this Sun has an urge to fight an conquer foes whether real or imagined  and the need is to slay a dragon of some type and so here feeling the power of tenacity makes on feel alive and vital.  There’s an innate need for passion and sometimes engaging in activities to the point of obsession but this level of intensity is needed in order to feed body, mind and soul.  If the person can dig deeply for the truth even to the point of doing research in some way to find the deep bottom-line answer, then the life force is energized.  Anything involving psychology and learning about the motivations of others helps the person born under this sign to feel vital, alive and generally purposeful which feeds their life force.

Sagittarius2

SUN IN SAGITTARIUS (born November 23 – December 21, 22, 23)

Expansion of the solar forces to their fullest potential happen with those born under the Sag Sun and there needs to be a wide field or area for this person to express their life force energy.  Here we have individuals who have a huge abundance of tolerance naturally and when this is being expressed, the Sag person feels that sense of purpose being fulfilled.  Honesty, freedom and optimism and cheerfulness need to be allowed expression in order for the person born under this Sun to feel confident and vitally alive.  The naturally restless spirit of the Sag Sun individual is soothed by experiencing some type of adventure and having an expression of freedom in their life in some way.  Teaching helps someone born in Sag to feel vitally alive, purposeful and thus feeds that life force, their Sun.  Travel or planning a trip is also something that a Sagittarius can do in order to feed their Sun!

Capricorn2

SUN IN CAPRICORN (born December 22, 23, 24 – January 20)

The Sun’s rays are usually weaker during these months but inside this individual there is a quiet drive that is powerfully present and needs feeding.  Anything requiring tenacity and determination will feed the body, mind and spirit of this individual.  This person needs a goal and something to master in some field or endeavor and has what it takes to endure hardship and to overcome obstacles and when these hardships and obstacles are overcome, the life force is revitalized.  There is purpose on the path of overcoming life that feeds this person’s body, mind and spirit.  This Capricorn Sun needs responsibility and can thrive on it!

Aquarius2

SUN IN AQUARIUS (born January 21 – February 19)

The person born under this Sun thrives on cooperation with others; and without it their life force fades and wanes.  Personal satisfaction comes from considering others first and in fact self-promotion diminishes one’s feeling of power and confidence.  Sharing with others and humanitarian concerns rule this individuals deepest inner desires and help one feel the life is being well-lived and furthers the feelings of brotherhood and friendship that keep this Sun fed.  Technology is also a place wherein a person born under this sign can shine and feel confident and purposeful; so developing technical skill helps one feel like shining even brighter especially if the technology enhances other people’s welfare.

Pisces2

SUN IN PISCES (born 2/20 – 3/20)

The solar forces are probably the weakest here in those born under this sign.  Yet, in times of adversity, the solar spark ignites and inner strength asserts itself.  Here we can see folks who can be very resistant but in a very passive way but the resistance can be arduous and formidable.  The person born under this sign feels confidence and life force grow when expressing adaptability, tolerance and compassion.  If the person born under a Pisces Sun works on behalf of those less fortunate this generally motivates their life.  So, therefore, charity work and healing work are of benefit in feeding the Sun of those born under Pisces.  The thing here is that the individual is basically very kind but others perceive this as weakness and then take advantage; therefore, boundaries are crucial for those born under this Sun Sign.  If anything in the arts using imagination are pursued (music, dancing, etc.) this can feed the Sun here since those born with a Pisces Sun have a strong imagination.  Grounding, naturally, is something that should be balanced with the imaginative nature.

I hope this little list will help you to know how to feed your own Sun and also for you to know a bit about how to help your family and friends enhance their life force as well.

May this information reach the right people and the right time in order to make a positive difference in their life and may their life force be energized beyond measure for the good of all.

What do you do when people change? Where do you find true unchanging happiness? Relationships, Drugs, and Tarot Ten of Cups

There’s no personal question today… nothing troubling the mind or heart but let me pretend that the person reading this today is troubled by a relationship problem.  It’s possible with the FULL MOON in the astrological relationship sign of LIBRA now.

Let’s say it has to do with people changing and we could pretend that the reader feels that the person they are closest to in life is turning, changing, becoming different and isn’t sure what’s going on and is troubled by the change.  Let’s ask the divination tool, the Tarot, the oracle used today in this post what advice should be given to such a person who is troubled by their loved one’s apparent change.

I’m going to shuffle the cards now.  Here we go…

Oh, good card I think!  We have the 10 of cups and there look at the image at the top of this post—good image isn’t it?  I mean, considering our question.  She’s looking down and he seems to be trying to look into her eyes to figure her out.  The rainbow above and cups with it represent emotional happiness perhaps and how she once was but currently there’s a different look than appears on the woman sitting on the rainbow.

Makes me think (before we go any further) about those who seem to need to figure other people out in the first place!  I mean, why can’t we tell him to get out of her face and leave her alone and find something better to do?  Well, anyway…

Let’s look at the 10 of cups and remember that this card – in archetypical terms – represents emotional happiness.  O, how fleeting that can be sometimes and how traumatic when we believe that we have lost the source of it which is (of course) impossible to do, but still…. There we are anyway.

It also makes me think about co-dependency.  You know what that is right?  I can’t be happy until I know you are okay and happy first.  That’s an example of co-dependency.  I know that one pretty well because this is how I was experiencing my middle child back when she was in high school and if I’m honest I still get this way sometimes and she’s now 34 years old!  But this isn’t about her and I… this is a general question about what to do when people change.

The Oracle (via the card) seems to want to specifically address the change having to do with changes in emotional happiness—or maybe that’s my own interpretation.  Anyway…

It’s definitely about emotions according to the Oracle.  Cups is the symbol representing emotions in the Tarot system.  My Herbal Tarot deck wants to associate this card with the “herb” cannabis sativa otherwise known as marijuana.  Passing illusions!  That’s what that rainbow on this card represents.  I’ve never liked drugs, alcohol or even excessive herbs because I’m already pretty Neptune-ish and have a difficult enough time keeping my feet on the ground!  I’m learning to master my mind and emotions and that’s a bit harder to do when under the influence.  LOL

The 10 of Cups card is about learning equilibrium and that comes through lessons many times that are given via others which brings us back to the main issue we’re talking about.  Can you remain balanced when others around you are not?  OR are you co-dependent?

When we get caught up in the pie-in-the-sky syndrome and believe that everyone should maintain a basic sense of equilibrium for our benefit so that ‘we’ can be okay, that’s quite a delusion to maintain.  People will change and we will as well.  That last statement really makes me think about how we find one moment of exquisite pleasure and peace in which no problems seem to be on any horizon and we feel happy and then we spend our life chasing that moment.  This, I believe, is what causes people to turn to marijuana, alcohol and/or other drugs—they are seeking to reproduce that carefree state albeit in an artificial way.  Joyful intoxication can be used as an exercise to learn to discriminate the true inner reality from outer delusions!  I can see that as the only benefit.

If you become troubled by a loved one who seems to have changed, examine your own tendency to be co-dependent and remember that all things will eventually pass—both peaks and valleys of happiness and sadness.  Find the unchanging core within you that is stable and maintains equilibrium despite changes in the life around you or in the people around you.  All happiness comes from within the mind and heart of full self-realization and no amount of drugs or alcohol or herbs will help you find it on a permanent basis.  Only YOU can create the non-changing stable, happy contentment that you are seeking in the outer world.  To help others who do not realize this yet, you can only show the best example and detach.

Receive the clues to your purpose on Earth—here’s how NOW! The Moon, Pisces, Full Moon in Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse

The Moon! Spiritual and physical evolution is the focus of today’s divination message.

How interesting to have drawn this card just the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is upon us.

The Moon opposes the Sun now challenging us to determine our own truth verses the lies we tell ourselves—in the form of denial.

Are we being in spiritual integrity?

The archetype of this card is Pisces, the unconscious mind—some say Pisces represents universal mind. But either way, the Moon is about the shadow—parts of ourselves that contain motivations and fears of which we either deny or of which we are unaware.

The Moon card of Tarot represents forces that shape our livesforces that are greater than own thoughts which guide our evolution. And these are the feeling and emotional forces that are responded to from our ego or personality selves.

Full Moon times are great times to meditate. We can, through the help of the higher energies that it is possible to access during meditation, view our emotions and feelings without getting lost in them.

Moon energy represents what is within the subconscious and the unconscious parts of ourselves–the shadow or hidden material.  In astrological terms we would say 12th house stuff–that’s how Pisces gets the association with the The Moon Card.  Pisces,ruled by Neptune, is the natural archetype of the 12th house.

It is said that during Full Moon times, plants go into a deep meditation. It’s a time for spiritual retreat and the plant kingdom seems to know that. That sounds like Native American folklore and whether there is any scientific proof of that, I don’t know; but I’ve heard that before. I suspect it may have something to do with moisture levels and the ocean tides due to gravity shifts but don’t quote me on that—it’s my own speculation.

What I can say, however,  is that many times I get what I call “Full Moon Headaches” during certain Full Moon times and many memories that I’d thought I’d forgotten surface from the subconscious during Full Moon’s.

It seems like the deeper levels of mind are easier to access during powerful Full Moons and this is why its a good time to meditate—you may tap into memories and insights better then.

Dealing with the past and issues or aspects of our lives where we are in fear, denial or struggling with an illusion or delusion are often exposed during Full Moons.

The element of water is associated with the Moon and emotion.  Water, water everywhere!  The Moon card is associated with Pisces which is a water sign and the Moon itself is ruled by Cancer, another water sign.  Thus, the strong emotional correlations by water.

And the obviously increased emotional states during Full Moon times are no secret to anyone dealing with the general public—as you know, hospital workers and police force personnel tell us about it all the time.

If anything needs to be released from the subconscious, it is more easily achieved during times of the Full Moon.  But, this “ain’t” no normal Full Moon–as they speak in the south.  This is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon…

LUNAR FULL MOON ECLIPSE

The message for today is that this Full Moon in Sagittarius time is right upon us! And as I have been blogging about for the last week, it is triggering the opposition from the Sun (of course—that’s what a Full Moon means) in Gemini.   I’m stating the obvious; here’s something more direct:

So, we may be challenged to determine what we believe, what our personal truth ‘is’, and we may be challenged to express or communicate (Gemini) that truth in a way that is evolutionary or in new ways, different ways than in the past. 

Why so? Because, this Full Moon is triggering each of us in a way that is working with our own personal soul’s karmic past and evolutionary intent.

Why? Because the Moon/Sun opposition is sitting on the transiting Nodes of the Moon themselves! 

 (The transiting/moving North Node and South Nodes of the Moon represent our evolving soul’s past and future.)

Whatever is happening in your life now and in the next few days especially is going to give you clues as to your life purpose—what you are here to heal and where your soul intends to evolve.

It would be good to pay attention to challenges and insights that are part of your life right now.

That is, if you want to know the answer to those universal questions: Why am I here? What is my purpose?

You will get major clues to that through dreams and meditations and plain ole’ life experiences right now.

Whatever is going on in your life right now – it’s one huge clue to be applied as an answer to those life purpose types of questions.

As this Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, so there will likely be some new imprints on the soul that occur at this time.

Eclipse energy is known to impact our destiny—it can be a time to make a new covenant with the universe.

When the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon (like it’s about to do now), we have a Lunar Eclipse and again, the Sun is in Gemini and the Moon is in Sag and through the open window of an eclipse, information can pass through into the soul and the soul can release energy out as well. Energies are released and received and in this case the energy has to do with the archetypal energies of Gemini and Sagittarius (truth versus lies).

The Earth is in the middle of the Sun and Moon and these two opposing Luminaries are creating a tug and pull within us—contractions, like giving birth to new energy.

The magnetic pull of the Sun and Moon eclipsing the Earth is strong enough to open the Earth’s sheath temporarily so that these energies can be received and released. Again, think of it like an open window, perhaps a portal.

Our beliefs (Sag) will be changed and the way we communicate (Gemini) those will also be affected. And in whatever way that happens for you personally, you will be able to put 2 + 2 together to understand what your own soul is trying to achieve so that you can work in harmony with it, instead of against it.

BOTTOM LINE: stop and look at your life now, today, and tomorrow and over the next 3 or 4 days. (I probably should say 3 or 4 months too–for the effects of an eclipse affect us for months afterward.)

Observe and correlate. If you are one who asks questions like, Why am I here? What am I supposed to be “learning” or doing? What is my purpose? You’re getting some great big hints right about NOW!

All you really have to do is observe and correlate what is happening in your own life right now. What issues are being triggered for you? What are you having to pay attention to? How is the theme of Gemini/Sag playing out for you now? (truth versus lies)

Whatever that is, it’s connected to what you are doing here and how your soul is trying to resolve, grow and evolve– just notice.

I’m out of time for today, see you tomorrow…
