Peace-Sign, the True Meaning

•May 18, 2018 • Leave a Comment

The Peace-Sign has been used since the 60s for peace, love and happiness…but what exactly does the symbol mean.
Symbols are used for a great many things in our world. People even have symbols tattooed upon the bodied, many do not even know the meanings. Many use symbols, in everyday ways and they really do not have a clue as to the true history….or I should say the true meaning of the symbol. Back In the 60s, the Hippie Movement use one certain symbol, that it seems just like many things during that time, they seemed to have put their own meaning or made into what they wanted. This is a careless action, one that is very common for people who “do what feels right” and has no educational knowledge of the symbols meaning. One such symbol is the ‘Peace’ symbol. Now a days, when people see this symbol, they think peace, love, and harmony…but that’s not the correct meaning of this word.

Back In the 1958, this symbol began making itself known (again) by Gerald Holtom who was a professional artist and activist, who was helping lead the Campaigning for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). His thinking was he wanted the N and D into his logo, as the N stood for “nuclear” and the D for “disarmament.” In semaphore, the letter N is formed by a person holding two flags in an upside-down V, and the letter D is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. By superimposing the flag orientation of these two letters, the bars of the peace sign were derived. He presented his design to the officials at Peace News, in which the committee accepted. At this time the Direct Action Committee was already planning their first major anti-nuclear march from London to Aldermaston. At that time the British were manufacturing nuclear weapons in Aldermaston. Reportedly he later regretted his choice of the symbol and wanted it changed to the upward V. Holtom felt that the V would represent the feeling of joy and peace better. He found out that the downward V was linked to the Hindu mystical character “AUM” as it is a sacred word repeated over and over to awaken the Braham at the base of the spine.

The “peace” symbol was also used by the Nazis. Hitler, and his Third Reich, were steeped in the occult. From 1941 to 1945 Hitler’s 3rd Panzer Division used this same symbol, but in Germany it was known as the ‘death rune’, as it often appeared on death notices. And there’s a reason for that, but we’ll get to that later on. Bertrand Russell, who was a supporter of communism. Russell claimed the symbol meant not only communism but also peace without God.

Even before that, in 711 A.D. the Saracens used it represent a broken cross, ravens claw, as well as a Witch’s foot. Going back a little further, let us not forget the Roman Emperor Nero as he used the peace symbol as a broken cross representing him being against Christians and Jews. Nero believed that without the Christians, there would be peace. Remember, during that time Christianity was trying to convert everyone (Pagans) to their religion, burning buildings/libraries and temples dedicated to Pagan

God/desses as well as killing Pagans that would not convert or were teaching the mysteries schools. One of those such teachers murdered was a woman, Hypatia who was a mathematician and astrologer. Showing His distaste, Nero crucified the Apostle Peter upside down, resembling the downward-pointing fork that was thereafter called the Neronic cross.

What many fail to know, is that the ‘peace’ sign was used in ancient Germanic Runes. Germanic tribes saw this symbol as one having mystical properties used in incantations, mostly dark magic. It is the Rune Algiz ( or Elhaz)

Uses of it in time…

The Elder Futhark Rune Algiz was understood in Germanic Mysticism meaning life….the “Life Rune”. It represents the upper branches of Yggdrasil, the antlers of the elk, the Valkyrie and her wings, or the invoker stance, higher spiritual awareness, the Divine Spark of the Universe. It us man’s arms reaching toward the heavens and communicating with the gods and other entities and other worlds. Just like the Rune Dagaz, it can be seen as the continual unfoldment of universal intelligence, its consciousness, in all its forms. More meanings of this Rune is Protection. As we align with the divine, it makes a person sacred, blessed by divine protection — set apart from the mundane. It represents the ability to communicate with gods and entities of the Higher Realms, it is the channel for the protective teaching force, that power which great teachers transfer to seekers. Teachers come in many forms. It is often to test our humility and readiness, alerting us as to what requires our attention, service and our unique ability to think for ourselves. It helps us to integrate knowledge into our own relationships and life experiences. It pushes us toward our fears and encourages us conquer them, rather than be ruled by them. To grow and learn from this experience…. to live fully and freely. This is energy can be intoxicating, and for the untrained very dangerous. Communicating with that Divine Energy, is quite an intense experience, for those not prepared can be detrimental.

Turned upside-down, it is the opposite of all listed above, and can be used to access the realm of the dead, giants, and the unconscious. It cuts off communion to the Divine, the Gods, and our access to higher realms and knowledge.

Symbols and signs are everywhere in our daily lives, meaning different things. And many of these signs and symbols are used in ways that are opposite of what they stand for. It is very important that you always do your research before you wear a symbol. No matter what you think that symbol means, that symbol our son, carries with it a certain vibration from the beginning of its making. This is ancient energy, not something you can readily discard. So be cautious with what you wear and what you place upon your body. You could be gifting yourself, or you could be condemning yourself. If you don’t know where to start, seek out others that are seasoned and experienced in what you wish to learn.

Many Blessings,

Uranus Transit and Taurus New Moon

•May 14, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Warmest greetings everyone! I hope you’ve been enjoying the astrological energy that’s been going on,, it’s interesting to say the least. I want to talk about a very important thing that is going to happen while we are in the sign of Taurus. But first, I want us to do a recap of what has been going on in Our Stars. We are going back to the start of this energy, beginning at our new moon in Pisces on March 17th. The new moon in Pisces brought about an ending, it was about releasing and letting go. Now with new moons, it is all about Beginnings. So this was a time of ending the old and beginning the new. It was a time of releasing our old habits, putting an end to those things that drain us or keep us from achieving what we wish to achieve. This could have been a job, a relationship, and even an addiction Maybe. So that energy, ending and new beginning, took us to our spring equinox, which is a new beginning/cycle as well. This is when light and dark are equal, this is a big transition time. This also marks the beginning of the astrological sign of Aries. Then, let us not forget about our Blue Moon on March 31st and Libra. Libra is the opposite of Aries. Aries is about to self, and Libra is about relating to others, or relationships. This is when we were learning that we cannot seek approval from outside ourselves, we need to look inside for the answers. We have our own perspective, and we must understand that others do as well. And in order to have successful relationships, we have to know ourselves, and a have security within our self, and not seek that from outside sources such as our relationships. The full moon on April 29th in Scorpio brought us to a deeper level of transition of the self. This could mean a lot of people are having what they call a Dark Night of the Soul, just a major transition in one’s life. You could be doing something now that you never dreamed you would be doing, maybe even completely opposite of where you’d thought you would be. And it was very intense as it was also in it’s opposite sign of Taurus. Taurus is about stability, and making sure that we have what we need in order to survive…

This took us to Beltane, which many of you know as May Day. This means we are halfway between the Spring Equinox and the summer solstice. It is a very fertile time, it is good for New Growth and it’s lots of raw energy. This energy was also rippling off the Scorpio full moon on the 29th…transition.

Now to get on where we are now let’s talk about Uranus. On May 15th Uranus will be moving into the sign of Taurus and we’ll stay there until the year 2026. Uranus has been present and the son of Ares since 2011. Another happening that will occur on that same day as we will have the new moon in Taurus which will be highlighting your in his transition from Aries to Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought about a revolutionary energy – one that illuminated the darkness, or the corruption here in this world. Moving into Taurus will allow us to ground this energy, aid us to make the transitions into reality, the physical. It is easy to talk about what we want to change, complain about the injustices, but it’s quite a different to actually do something about it, to make the transitions into reality. It is easy to talk about it, but can you walk that talk. The past 7 years Uranus in Aries was setting the stage, moving into Taurus is about how we will activate and use the energy for the betterment for ourselves, and the world. Uranus loves surprises, revolutionary acts and Taurus rules Finance, banking, material possessions. Many say that this placement is about following the money. There are some that see this as a different kind of banking / such as Financial systems changing. If you will remember there is a bull statue in front of Wall Street for a reason. Now a statue called The Fearless girl stands in front of it, rumors are they are wanting it moved. But for me I see this more of people coming out of the slave mentality and making Rich richer, and begin to start out on their own in more of an entrepreneurial kind of path. The “Fearless Girl” represents the vulnerable being took advantage of by the systems that be. Uranus is about freedom, freedom from the old way. Uranus is feminine and so is Taurus, but not submissive. This is about breaking free from outdated thinking, maybe this will be a time of more women stepping up to the plate on important matters in our world. Taurus represents the sign Venus and represents our inner World, while Uranus is our outer environment. Uranus is shocking, it likes to shock Us in unexpected ways. Meaning that things happen to us in our in our world and prompt us into making the changes we need to make for our outer world. And this energy may feel confrontational, but it is needed. Uranus likes to clear the way for the betterment for all. During this transition, flexibility will be key. Going with the flow will be essential. You’ll need to think on your feet, and be adaptable. This is something we have to face. Taurus is fixed and Uranus unexpected so we will not be able to ignore things and hope they go away. Remember change is a step-by-step process. It happens over time, and remember time is not linear it is circular. Many people are predicting a big Global money Trend, like different forms of currency… Money. Money and career changes could be happening at this time. Human rights, but more of our personal rights such as our food and environment, Taurus energy. This is going to have the energy of humanitarianism. This is a time when the elements tear away from the old Paradigm, forcing us into a new awareness of our environment and our world. An important note here, Scorpio and Taurus has been used for 2,000 plus years for wealth, or more of money symbols.

Taurus is about our relationship to our physical world. Physical things including the Earth, our bodies, animals, money and resources. Remember is planet is Venus, and the second house which is about our personal needs being met. This could be physical luxuries, personal wealth, living comfortably, as well as showing our dependence upon the Earth as our shelter, water, and food. This is a time that new technologies will come to aid us and protecting our resources. So don’t be surprised if we start seeing more eco-friendly inventions to use. Uranus is about the unexpected, so this could be something happening, a shock, to make us, or even force us onto better ways to do things. My best advice for you during this time is to hang on to your seats. You can work with this energy, but I feel for the majority is really going to be about something happening to make you do it.

At the end of the month, on May 29th, we will have our full moon in Sagittarius which is going to highlight Mercury entering Gemini…Sagittarius opposite sign which may give some argumentative energy. But we’ll discuss that when we get there.

On to the reading…

What is the situation?

THE SUN…Here we wanting growth. Many have started new things. Whether it be a job, relationship, or even just a new way of thinking. Our focus is on some sort of new growth and ideas. This card is growth that has stability and long lasting.

What will be crossing our paths?

9 of STONES…This card is about gain, but more of your hard work will pay off. In some ways, you have achieved some goals. Stones are about the material, physical world. This is making our dreams reality.

Advise….5 of CUPS….Along your path, there are things you will need to release before you can move on. With new growth, comes new energy and some people or things will fall away. You see the 4 cups pouring water into the main cup, you. Some things in your life have been weighing you down, you cant let them/it continuously dump their baggage on you.

Outcome… SON OF CUPS…. Here in the outcome position, this is advising us that we need to stay focused upon our path or we are going to lose our vision. If we’re not going to release the old, it is going to influence the future, are manifestations. We have to remain focused upon the task which we are doing so we will be able to manifest what we want. When you’re in the beginning of New Growth it can be very chaotic, and make it easy to lose one’s way. Stay focused here this is going to be really intense energy with this Moon and transition of Uranus into Taurus.

This Transit is all about bringing our dreams, those things that we have envisioned for ourselves, into physical reality. But it is going to take us great focus in order to make this happen. We cannot allow distractions to tear us away from our vision, that which we wish to manifest.

Enchanted New Moon Blessings,

Healing On the Mountain

•April 20, 2018 • Leave a Comment

When you have been initiated into the craft, there comes a many changes, Transformations, and transmutations. It is so good when you have a high priestess to go to when you’re going through these changes. These changes can make you feel like you’re completely alone and drowning in a pool of your own emotional baggage. This excerpt is hitting home with me now and I wanted to share it with you all. Because I know many people are going through their own types of struggles and challenges at this time, so maybe this will help.
” While the woman was on the mountain, learning, everything was magic. Now that she is off the mountain, the so-called magical hair has been burned and the fire that destroys illusion, and now it is time for “Afters Zen”. Life is supposed to become mundane again. Yet she has the Bounty of her experience on the mountain. She has knowing. The energy that was bound up and rage can be used for the other things. Now a woman who has come to terms with rage returns to Monday life with new knowing, a new sense that she can more artfully live her life. Yet one day in the future, a something — a look, a word, a tone of voice, a feeling of being patronized, unappreciated, or manipulated against one’s will, (one of these) Will crop up again. Then her residue of pain will catch fire. Rage left over from old injuries can be compared to the trauma of a shrapnel wound. One can pick out almost all the pieces of shattered metal from the missile, but the tiniest shards remain. One would think that if most are out, that would be that. Not so. On some occasions, those tiniest shards Twist and Turn within and cause an ache that feels like the original wounding (rage rising up) all over again.
None of us can entirely Escape our history. We can certainly put it in the background, but it is their nevertheless. However if you will do things for yourself, you will Bridge the rage and eventually everything will come down and be fine. Not perfect but fine. You’ll be able to move ahead. The time of the shrapnel rage will be over.
A woman remembers that she can be both Fierce and generous at the same time. Rage is not like a kidney stone—If you wait long enough, it will pass. No, no. You must take right action. Then it will pass, and more creation will come into your life.”

“We cannot stay in the Ecstasy of perfect union forever. For most of us, it is not our path to do so. Our work is rather to be weaned at some point from these most exciting forces, yet to remain and conscious connection to them and to proceed to the next task. It is a fact that we can become fixated on a particularly lovely aspect of psychic Union and attempt to stay there forever, sucking at the sacred tit. This does not mean nurture is destructive. Quite the contrary, nurture is absolutely essential to the journey, and insubstantial amount. In fact, it is not present and adequate amounts, the Seeker will lose energy, fall into depression, and Fade to a whisper. But if we stay at a favorite place in the psyche such as only in Beauty, only in Rapture, individuation slows to a slug. The Naked Truth is that those sacred forces we find within our own psyches someday must be left, at least temporarily, so that the next stage of the process can occur.”

6 of EARTH

This card is all about generosity. It also reminds us of the Hermetic law of cause and effect. That which we send out will come back to us. With this card, we are reminded that what we give out will come back to us. Many times this can be unexpected resources, or a happy surprise.

In numerology, the number six is about unconditional love. It is the home, the Hearth, nurturing relationships, deep compassion and empathy. The number 6 is about giving without expecting anything back. But the problem with this, is that many times the deeply, compassionate nurturer usually doesn’t get anything back, they’re too concerned in giving to others.

This card reminds us that as we give we should also learn to receive. So, remember reciprocation, remember what you give out comes back to you. If you give out, be open to receive goodness as well. Do not block when people are trying to give to you, help you, be that nurturer that you are to others. It is also a good reminder to not keep giving as you do not receive anything back. If we give and give without nurturing our own selves we deplete our energy and we deplete our health, thus putting our bodies in dis-eased states and stressed out.

Remember, giving and nurturing is okay, but remember to be open to receive.

Enchanted Blessings,

This is one of the cards I love. He is young (full of possibilities), he has a sceptre and wand and a distinguished looked upon his face….he knows where he is going. He knows what he wants and he knows of is tasks of getting there. He has committed to his path, and is centered and grounded.
Even though Mercury is in retrograde, this is a good omen for your new tasks that you have began. If you notice how his feet almost disappear in the Earth, that reminds us to stay grounded especially with your desires. We have to have some type of plan, and that needs to be realistic, grounded in reality and with my hard work and perseverance things will begin to work out. Prosperity is on the horizon, stay committed to you.
Good stones to use during this time is Malachite (as,well as ask through Mercury retrograde) helps keep you centered. Amazonite will help you to communicate authentically, and Clear Quartz will aid in focus and will also amplify the energy of the other stones. If anxiety is creeping up on you, adding Amethyst will help.
Have a great day!

QUEEN OF AIR
What an amazingly beautiful card! On Frejyas day, what else could we expect? The message today is about communication, and with Mercury in retrograde this is highly important. with proper and clear communication we show our self-esteem, we also can display our boundaries. With correct communication we can align our words with our intentions and a way that no one can be confused by what we are saying. We find our real truth, and we release the false-ness of the illusions that others may speak. Here we are learning to be honest with ourselves, as well as others.
The wise old owl sits on the Queen’s left shoulder, left is our feminine our receiving side, and has been used since ancient times as a method of Prophecy as well as wisdom. The owl is known as the silent Observer, as it is able to see through the darkest of nights to see danger and hunt its prey. The Owl is very aware of its surroundings. Through being a silent Observer, it teaches us to listen to our inner wisdom, as well as watching others to see them in their truth. The Greeks held the owls so sacred that it was the guardian of the Acropolis.
Today, we are guided to speak our truth from our inner wisdom. With Mercury being retrograde it is very important that our communication is clear and precise. The best stones to wear today would be the lapis lazuli, as it will help with communication, and the Bloodstone as you will need to be well grounded today.

Enchanted Blessings,
