Expansion of “Luck” or Coincidence

Over the last year, I’ve learned a lot about astrology and how the stars, planets, points, etc. have a direct influence over us in regards to the circumstances that we experience throughout our lives, whether we believe it or not.

I’ve been back and forth with whether or not to pay attention to the alignments because I have been so confused about it all. But lately, I’ve gained a lot of clarity about what’s going on in the cosmos. But like anything we believe in life, we could always be proven wrong. I get information about what’s going on in the cosmos but that’s it. I don’t overthink about how my future will be based on what’s going on, I just see where everything is and what kind of energy they will throw in our direction so I can prepare myself for them.

Even though they have these direct influences, we each have the free will to view and respond to them as we see fit. That is the only thing we have control over. We do not control the cosmos or anything they throw our way.

So lately, there was a huge transit that happened last month. The biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, finally made its transit back home in the group of stars, or constellation, called Sagittarius. This happens once every 12 years and it stays in this constellation for about 12-13 months.

Jupiter is known as the planet of luck and expansion. So it expands whatever it touches. Now, because it is in Sagittarius, it is expanding higher learning, travel and luck. It’s in my home turf because I’m both a Sagittarius Sun and Ascendant, although the Ascendant is the most important, which is determined by the time you were born and determines the houses that the other constellations fall under. So because Jupiter is back in my first house, its home turf, things will start to shift in my favor way more easily than it has been over the last 3 years, especially this last year, as long as I respect the transit, stay aware and keep my ego in check.

So if you are not aware of the true essence of higher learning, what luck really means beyond the surface and you do not keep your ego in check, you may start to experience luck in a way that’s very uncomfortable.

Higher learning is a way of understanding life beyond the surface, as I’ve explained in a previous post The Problem With Awareness (I know, sounds like a contradiction). And luck is not what people think it is as I’ve posted about in The Nature of “Luck”. Most people think of luck in a way that is easy to obtain that is great on the surface and that’s not exactly what Jupiter offers. However, if you do the work by understanding life in a higher mind kind of way, the luck you receive will appear easy.  Like I said, it’s a matter of how you use your free will to view and respond.

Now with this said, there are some things I’ve noticed that have happened since this transit took place. Call it the direct influence of the “luck” planet transit or a coincidence.

Many people that I know, whether family or friends that completely disregarded my attempts of informing them about astrology for the past year all have been experiencing “bad luck” since last month. One in particular, a friend, and the only person who criticized a post I made about astrology last year, dislocated his shoulder once this Jupiter transit took place and is now in rehab. I don’t think “good, he deserved it” but rather I am just amazed at how coincidental this is. It’s almost as if our lives are now “switched”.

I was in complete isolation and confusion in life for quite some time during that harsh transit my planet and constellation has made over the last few years and at the same time observing everyone else, including my friend, appearing to do well. Now, that my ruling, first house planet has returned home, I’m doing so well, and others are in a sense “struggling” even though I can clearly see what “lucky” opportunities are laid out for them. I’ve tried to explain to them what’s going on but they think I’m crazy. As for my friend, the rehab means he needs to slow the fuck down in life because his ego is out of hand and this is his golden opportunity to realize that.

So what do you think? Is it really the expansion of “luck” or just a coincidence?

The Problem With Awareness

What is awareness?

Awareness is the ability to derive an explanation about something beyond the surface of understanding.

What do I mean? Let’s talk about jealousy.

Last night I went to IHOP for dinner. Yep, dinner. The guy who was practically running the show (host, server, busser) was in a great mood and really talkative as I walked up to pay. He was having a conversation with one of the cooks about jealousy and how he couldn’t understand why he considered himself to be “the shit” and have all this confidence but still gets very jealous. So, as I’m paying my check, he asked me if I get jealous. I was a little hesitant to answer him just because I just knew I’d confuse the shit out of him with my answer and not because it was some random question I’m sure most people would take offense to. I did decide to answer just to see how he’d respond and he responded just the way I thought.

I replied, “Of course I get jealous, because if I was never jealous, I wouldn’t be human. It’s a matter of how you balance your jealousy.”

His response was priceless. He went from really talkative and confident to really quiet and confused. After a few seconds he asked me what I meant, then asked me what I do for a living.

I just told him that jealousy is a natural human emotion and to not have even just a little bit of it, would make me unhuman. As humans, we are housed with all sorts of emotions because we are mortal and survival depends on our emotions and how well we balance them with our ego. The more untamed your ego is, the more jealous you become as well. This is what separates us from artificial intelligence as their ego always coincides with emotion because that’s the ultimate goal of every human. They have it easy. But as humans, we cannot obtain that ultimate goal so easily as life is all about constantly putting in the work towards learning how to balance your ego with your emotions.

Then I proceeded to leave by telling him that I confuse people for a living. Boy was he confused when I left.

Was my ego lit from that explanation? Nah.

He asked me a question in which most people would respond with either no or yes because of their surface understanding of the word jealousy and the negative connotations that are attached to it. My response wasn’t just based on philosophical principles, it was also logical, based on the awareness of human emotions and I wanted to share that with him.

The problem with awareness in this case is the fact that I see jealousy as something more than being a negative emotion. I see it beyond the surface as an emotion that helps us to evolve when balanced correctly and also an emotion that emphasizes the beauty of being a human. However, I cannot emphasize that awareness to most people because they do not understand due to lack of awareness and, therefore, would consider me “too deep” and confusing.

All people see is just a dull thought of how jealousy is “bad” because it’s an easy and simplified way to understand something without much brain activity. End of story. And because more people are unaware than aware, and majority rules, the aware ones are considered outliers, weird and awkward. Well, how else are we supposed to communicate with you to where you can understand? Annoyance level 100.

However, to be truly aware is to acknowledge that our annoyance stems from our own lack of awareness of understanding that most people don’t know any better and we can’t blame them. It simply isn’t their fault. That’s where learning to balance compassion comes in and this is something I do struggle with.

Becoming more aware is trying to balance your compassion level with your annoyance level. It’s not easy and, like I’ve mentioned before, is a continuing process but continuous effort does need to happen. You want to be compassionate and understanding of the unintended and restricted thought process of most people but know there’s more to life than superficial conversations and surface level small talk.

So what do you do? It’s a battle and definitely a challenge that comes with becoming aware. However, I feel more people are becoming aware so the annoyance level should pipe down to a minimum at some point.

What do you think? Do you consider yourself to think beyond the surface of most things in life? I’m curious.

 

 

Astrology, My Natal Birth Chart and Some Randomness

I’ve been wanting to blog about this for a while but didn’t because I felt caged in the hermit mode type of energy that sits in the corner and feels sorry for itself. Plus astrology was just one of those spiritual aspects I’ve wanted to pipe down on. But recently, I’ve picked it back up.

So now that a huge astrological shift has happened, I can feel it, big time! It’s Jupiter returning home into Sagittarius! I have been waiting for this transit since October 2017 and it has finally come.

A Little Something For My Mom

Any time I’m in Sedona, Arizona, I try to swing by the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

I’m not Catholic but my mom was. She tried to get me and both of my sisters to go to church all the time with her when we were younger but never forced us.

We were all baptized as Catholics but out of the three of us, I was the only one who never received Confirmation and Holy Communion. So yeah, I wasn’t allowed to eat the bread and drink the grape juice.

A Wink From the Cosmos

Yesterday, I randomly decided to take a break from my drive along the Pacific coast in a city called Depoe Bay, Oregon.

I sat in my Jeep for a good 30 minutes to take in the incredible view of the ocean and to catch up on my journaling because I haven’t done so since I was in Canada a couple of days ago. As I finished journaling, I decided to grab some food at one of the places located behind where I parked. I saw a sign for clam chowder located on one of the restaurants but for some reason I didn’t feel it was a good idea to go there but I did want chowder. I looked a little to my right and saw a place that looked really good and definitely caught my attention – Gracie’s Sea Hag. Ha! I went into Gracie’s and had myself a bread bowl full of awesome clam chowder.

The Struggles of the Twin Flame Journey Pt. 2

I felt compelled to write about this again because this connection has made its fierce comeback recently. I’ve also noticed the first part received a lot of views from search engines and I’ve received a few emails in regards to this connection.

So the twin flame concept is something I feel is very misunderstood. I feel many people confuse it with lust or some type of unhealthy attachment people have after a breakup with someone they love. This is not it.
