Descendant, Origin of the Soul; Conversation

Part 1 and Part 2 of Descendant, Origin of the Soul has been published.

I’m trying to figure out how I can open this up for conversation and exactly what I’m trying to get out of it.

If you have a descendant between the 25th degree of Capricorn and the 5th degree of Aquarius, I’d like to know if your life feels fated in some way. I’d like to know if you feel like you have a purpose; do you feel like you were put here for something specific?

Do you feel like you lived before?

I have to be honest here, this spiritual path for me came out of nowhere around 2007, and I’m just now starting to understand why it did. Everything points to independence and self-discovery; like a detachment from the collective to learn about myself, and then return when I have something worth sharing.

I’d like to hear from you! Have a great day.

Descendant; Origin of the Soul; Part 2 of 2

Before I begin this post, I would like to revisit something I said in my video. I never slammed anyone for their beliefs, and I would never dare tell anyone something they believed to be true, wasn’t.

Just the other day, I said to myself, “There’s a lot of things I need to keep to myself because I’m at a point now where the answers I seek are truly inside of me.”

It’s not that the world lacks good advice or good people to give good advice, and I’m not attempting to keep things bottled up inside. My understanding of the world around me is complimentary to my view as a person in it. When you reach this level, some things are better left unsaid.

I believe in reincarnation. I believe I lived before, and I believe I will return. What I came up with the other day and presented in my video, is at the very least, and unbelievably amazing theory. For those of us who are on this awakened spiritual journey that has surprisingly swept us out of the mainstream cattle march, we are experiencing the outward manifestation of our soul’s inner journey. Like I said, it’s a journey that mirrors itself and for me personally, it can be read, followed, and interpreted by the use of astrology.

It’s what I’ve been shown, and most of it I’ve shared with all of you, that causes me to believe what I believe. We do have a soul, and when the time is right for that soul to grow, evolve, and progress, we are awakened by it. The soul’s journey begins with its detachment from source, and at that time we’re awakened. We become super aware and tuned in to interactions with people, the relationships we’ve formed, things that keep repeating, synchronicities, dreams, self-sabotaging behaviors, and so on. We’re awakened to things we never would’ve given our attention to in the past, and it’s because the soul grows through the human experience.

At a certain point, everyone on this planet will experience this. It might not be in this lifetime, it might not be in the next life, but believe me, you lived before, you will return, and you will awaken when your soul is ready.

So, let’s get into my descendant. My descendant, which is the cusp of the 7th House, is 1*43 Aquarius. I’m also an Aquarius with a 7th House Sun, and my lunar node axis runs from the 29th degree of Aquarius (8th House) to the 29th degree of Leo (2nd House).

This is a lot of activity in the sign of Aquarius. My descendant is at the beginning of Aquarius, and my descending or lunar south node is at the end of Aquarius with the Sun in the middle on the 18th degree.

My lunar north node is conjunct the star Regulus, and my lunar south node is conjunct Mercury.

My descendant is conjunct the star, Altair (Aquarius 1*29).

If the descendant, like we explained, marks the point of who, what, or where we at the soul level are a descendant of, then my soul would’ve incarnated as a descendant of the constellation Aquila.

Altair (on my descendant) is one of three stars in the summer triangle asterism, it’s the brightest star in Aquila, it’s the 12th brightest star in the night sky, and it’s aligned with the celestial equator. Altair is the bird (eagle) that carried Zeus/Jupiter’s thunderbolts, and the eagle sent to carry Ganymede to the Gods where he would become their cup bearer and immortalized as Aquarius.

This is the story of my soul. It was once young, beautifully attractive, and trusted enough by the Gods to be their cup bearer, but my soul woke up, and it woke me up. It was time for it to detach from source, and it was time for it to detach from the 7th House relationship with the Gods. It was trusted, spoiled, and beautifully attractive, but all that special treatment was stunting its growth.

So, my soul began its journey to the 1st House of Self to find out who or what it truly is without the help of the Gods. It was time for my soul to grow up, become self-aware, and individualized in its own right. This could not be done as a servant to the Gods. A decision had to be made.

So, it’s working its way over to Leo in the 1st House. It’s coming out of the darkness of Aquarius, and into the Light of Leo. Directly across the way is my ascendant on 1*43 Leo. That’s the beginning of the astrological sun’s entry into the sign of the Lion, and roughly July 22nd on the calendar. 143 is the numerical code for I Love you, so my soul is loved on both sides.

The feast day for Saint Mary Magdalene in on July 22nd, so I envision Mary waiting with her arms stretched out. She’s ready and waiting to embrace me and give me grace as I bravely (MC Aries) come out of the darkness and enter the light of the kingdom.

The Lion (Leo) was the symbol for the Tribe of Judah (holy nation), and the star Regulus, which is conjunct my lunar north node, is a kingly star and a star of royalty.

The story of my soul is clear. Leave the heavenly relationship and connection to source where it was a servant, and become an earthly king.

The Sabian Symbol for my descendant is, “An unexpected thunderstorm.” Things can change quickly and without warning, and it has been said before, “I’d rather rain in hell than serve in heaven.”

But it’s love and victory all the way around the chart.

According to Barbara Hand Clow, my moon in Scorpio opposite Chiron in Taurus is the highest manifestation of the alchemized moon. Magic and kundalini energy in abundance is what’s in the inside. Venus on the 27th degree of Pisces in the 9th House is exalted.

And here I am, housing this soul striving for kingship and destined for greatness!

This is how I feel about this, if I wasn’t supposed to wake up to this, then I wouldn’t have been born with my descendant where it was. The first zone of Aquarius (0 through 10 degrees) is a determined independent spirit. If the Gods wanted my soul to stay asleep and continue serving them, they would’ve given me a sleepy spirit that was content in darkness.

It’s time.

Blood In Blood Out?

Wow, so, my plan was to work on Part 2 of 2 for Descendant; Origin of the Soul, but right after I posted Part 1 a few hours ago I sliced the tips of my middle finger and ring finger on my left hand.

There was a dry erase board (with no wooden border on it) next to my desk that was falling backwards, and when I reached down to stop it, I guess it was the perfect angle. I didn’t know, but that dry erase board is a thin sheet of metal capable of cutting the shit out you.

There was blood everywhere; walls, desk, floor, bed, cell phone, laptop, and on my face and clothes.

Here’s the interesting thing.

On May 22nd, the third night of the new moon in Cancer, I prayed to Jesus, the Lady and the Lord, and Goddesses Athena and Vesta. I was praying and asking for certain things, and I have a little ritual I like to do at the end of the prayers to, in a sense, solidify the deal.


There days ago I bought a few candles from the Dollar store because May 1st was the celebration for the Beltane Sabbat. I know I was late on that, but it’s okay. I was never that religious with Catholicism and I’m not that religious with the Craft.

I bought two dark green candles because they resonate best with Beltane, and an Orange owl candle for the Greek Goddess of wisdom, warfare, and handicraft, Athena (Minerva in Rome’s Pantheon).

I lit them last night, and all of them burnt out by this afternoon except one of the dark green candles.

That dark green candle burned all day, which is surprising for a Dollar store candle, and they say you should let the candles burn out naturally because the time it takes for the candles to burn out is how long it takes the Gods to hear and answer your prayers.

As a matter of fact, the last thing I noticed before cutting my fingers was the flame still going.

Then, SLICE (accidentally of course)!! Before I even noticed I was cut, blood was everywhere. I jumped up, wrapped my hand in a towel and sped off to the ER.

When I got home, the flame was out.

Giving the sequence of events and the synchronicities involved here, was the shedding of blood God’s plan to intensify the power of the candle magic?

I would never and have never involved blood with candle magic or rituals before, but after what happened today, I feel like doing so was necessary and inevitable with or without my consent.

Was this an induction by unseen forces of nature?

I will get to Part 2 of 2 before tomorrow is over, I promise.

Descendent, Origin of Soul; Part 1 of 2

According to several online dictionaries, descendent, means: 1. descending from an ancestor; proceeding from an ancestor or source; one deriving from a precursor or prototype; 2. moving or directed downward.

I’ve talked a lot about the Ascendant in my astrological birth chart, and there’s a lot of content and interest focused on the Ascendant in general for obvious reasons. The definitions for Ascendant are opposite of those given for descendent, and through those definitions we can understand why so many people want to know about it, but I’ve been thinking about this recently, and what came to mind was this; we all start from the bottom and nothing built is done so from the top down.

In addition, if we’re to internalize the idea of a final destination, or a journey or path taking us from one place to another then wherever this road leads to would require our understanding, knowing, and awareness of where we came from.

How are you supposed to know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been or where you’re coming from?

When it comes to the astrological birth chart, or any astrological chart, the term descendent is used twice. The first is in association to the Moon. The Lunar South Node is the descending nodal point that shows where the Moon begins its descent on the ecliptic as it crosses paths with the Sun. It’s where the Moon starts going downward.

The other, which is the focus of this posting, is the descendent. If you look at a birth chart, you will notice a thick black line running across the chart from the ascendant on the left to the descendent on the right. The ascendant is the cusp of the 1st House, and it can only be found by knowing the exact time you’re creating the chart for. For our birth charts, that means knowing the exact time of birth.

People who shun precision tend to shun the truth as well, but trust me, when it comes to astrology, exact times are important. Every degree is important and every degree has a unique meaning attached to it. In addition, when you know the exact time and you can find the ascendant, you can then adjust all the other houses accordingly.

The Ascendant/Descendant is an axis, they’re points in opposition (180 degrees apart). That means they’re at opposite points exactly. If you’re ascendant (first house cusp) is 3 degrees, then you’re Descendent (seventh house cusp) is also going to be on the 3rd degree.

The Ascendant/Descendant axis is a horizontal axis that defines our earthly limitations. If you can imagine Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man with his arms stretched out wide, one hand would touch the Ascendant and the other would touch the Descendent. This is from a spiritual perspective.

Astrologically, this axis divides the chart in half separating the top from the bottom, the upper six houses from the lower six houses, and night from day.

Now, let’s get into the interesting stuff. We all want to know who we are, and we all want to know where we came from. Let’s think about this.

If the Descendent represents where we came from, and the Ascendant represents where we’re going, then that means the Descendant represents that ancestor, precursor, prototype, and source we’re coming from. And this couldn’t possibly have anything to do with our physical existence or current reality, right? Because physically, we’re born into a family. We can trace our family linage and see exactly where and who we came from.


This is something much deeper and non-physical. The Descendent is the cusp of the 7th House, and the 7th House is the House of relationships. The Ascendant is the cusp of the 1st House, and the 1st House is the House of Self, it’s who we are.

When we read our charts, we all begin with the 1st House. That’s what we’re taught and that’s what we’re shown. The 1st House is supposed to tell us who we are, and then, as we work our way through the houses and make our way to the 7th, the 7th House is supposed to represent a later time in life when we form relationships and finally meet the “other” but only after we know who we are and gain the communication and social skills to do so.

This is a contradiction!

If the Descendant is where we’re coming from, then that’s our starting point not the Ascendant. That means we’re coming from a relationship (7th House) and we did not start alone, but we’re striving towards or trying to reach individuation or self awareness (1st House). The Ascendant/Descendent axis represents a process through which we come into being and gain full awareness of who we are. The axis represents the process or path, and the points themselves represent, in a sense, locations.

This is an unbelievable realization!

This is about the origin, development, and growth of our souls! The Ascendant/Descendent axis represents the spiritual path, the journey through God’s Grace and goodness, some of us are forced into after we’re awakened. It’s the physical manifestation of something that ultimately began in the etheric realms.

Yes, the astrological birth chart as we’re taught to read it, does explain, reveal, and indicate how our current lives are and will be affected by the alignments and relationships of the planets and other heavenly bodies, but there’s something deeper and more significant in there for those who have to the eyes to see, and the wisdom to understand.

At the soul level, our souls began in a relationship and connected to source, which is represented by the descendent. So, it’s true. Our souls are on a journey. Our soul, as much as it hurts, must detach from source and go through this process of development that ultimately leads to self-awareness, which is represented by the ascendant and the 1st House.

What the soul is going through at the etheric level will manifest into our lives at the physical level through a path of spirituality where we seek the answers to more meaningful questions and pursue the meaning of life itself. The outside becomes like the inside, and the inside becomes like that of the outside as the journey mirrors itself. In the physical, it’s houses 1 through 7 beginning with the self in the 1st House and striving towards meaningful partnerships, relationships, and marriages with the others in the 7th House.

At the soul or etheric level, it’s houses 7 through 1. The soul begins in the 7th House of Relationships as it’s connected to its source and creator, and when the time is right, it begins its journey for self-discovery, which is obtained in the 1st House.

What’s really interesting, and something I’ve experienced during my own spiritual pursuits, is that in real life, the 1st House of Self is always taken for granted. Sarcastically, people say, “What do you mean you’re trying to find out who you are? You’re Francis LaManna, I’m your father, that’s your mother, and this is where we live. C’mon man, what are you trying to figure out?”

People sarcastically assume the knowledge of knowing who we are individually is common and already known, but they couldn’t be any further from the truth. The truth is that that attitude and approach is how they keep us apart of the collective and prevent us from reaching self-awareness.

It’s my understanding of all this that causes such great excitement and intrigue when considering my own Descendent. So, let’s take this back to the beginning since we now know what the Descendent represents.

Who are you? Where did you come from?

Gift Found in Most Unusual Spot

Several months ago, I was digging through my birth chart looking for clues and hidden treasures. It took a while, but I was finally able to find the placement of some asteroids, which are all Greek or Roman Goddesses.

At a first glance, I saw Chiron near the top of my chart in Taurus in the 10th House, and I saw the conjunction between Jupiter (7th degree) and Mars (12th degree) in Virgo in the 2nd House.

What I didn’t see, however, was the missing piece.

It took a long time and many hours of studying, but finally, I was able to find the connection between the main belt asteroid, 5 Astrea, and the Starry Maiden, Astrea, in Greek and Roman mythology. Once that was done, I could find and interpret her placement in my chart.

With Astrea, I now had something in my chart that I never even knew was there; two Grand Earth Trines! A few months after finding this connection in my chart, it manifested into the physical!



Vesta 10 degrees, Chiron 9 degrees/Taurus/10th House of Public Image

Jupiter 7 degrees, Mars 12 degrees/Virgo/2nd House of Possessions

Astrea 8 degrees/Capricorn/6th House of Work and Wealth.

They say Virgo isn’t the best placement for Jupiter, and this is a perfect example. While I can work and earn money, abundance and expansion is limited.

Cardinal Points & Festivals

Hello beloved.

Right now, we have both the Sun (0 ♊) and the Moon (26 ♊) in the sign of The Twins, Gemini. The current moon cycle began on the 19th of May in Taurus, and last night, the moon was a waxing crescent in Gemini. Tonight will be the second night of the new phase, and we’ll see another waxing crescent lit up at 4% in Gemini.

There are two festivals coming up that I’m now recognizing because of astrology. Vesta is the Goddess of hearth and home, and her festival, Vestalia, is celebrated on June 9th. The inner sanctum of the temple of Vesta is open on June 7th and closed on June 15th.

The second is the feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene on July 22nd. In addition to the connection between July 22nd and my ascendant, Mary Magdalene was also connected to Diana and Artemis (Moon), the Goddess of the Hunt.

The last thing I wanted to share is something I consider to be very important because it’s hidden information. Most of us know the Cardinal points in astrology; Aries and Libra share one axis, and Cancer and Capricorn share the other, but did you know these points are connected to Cardinal Virtues in Cristian Theology and classical philosophy?

The Cardinal Virtues are Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, and Temperance.





9th House Hosting Sun Plus 4

The astrological 9th House is known to be a broader version of the 3rd. The energetic relationships between planets and the influence of planetary archetypes can manifest in the 9th House and be relative to long-distance travel, higher thinking, philosophy, higher education, and publishing and literary pursuits.

Right now, Taurus is taking up the majority of space in the 9th House, and there’s definitely an abundance of energy in Taurus.

There’s a conjunction with the Sun on the 26th degree and Uranus on the 19th degree. Taurus is a sign of love and beauty, it’s ruled by Venus the Goddess of love, and it’s natural home is the 2nd House of possessions.

A conjunction between the Sun and Uranus can deliver a blast of will power to a necessary awakening. Taurus energy can be lazy, and the 9th House is definitely not a place for laziness. Uranus is jolting us to awaken because there’s much to gain (possessions) from pursuits in the 9th House. It could be a sudden interest to travel somewhere , or it could be a sudden interest to study and devote oneself to sacred or philosophical texts. Possessions need not always be something tangible, the truth perhaps, can be one of the greatest possessions of all.

On the other end of the sign, we have Jupiter 0 degree, the moon 4th degree, and Mercury on the 6th degree; that’s a three planet conjunction. Jupiter is sign of expansion and abundance, the Moon represents our subconscious mind, and Mercury represents our the part of our brain we use for everyday thinking. Given the sign and house and the conjunction between Uranus and the Sun, this three-way conjunction is showing an opportunity for mental expansion, and more importantly, the discovery of something previously unknown.

The presence of Mercury indicates communication of some kind, and this could be a conversation with someone who’s in possession of information or knowledge you need. It could also be you communicating the discoveries you’ve made during quiet study or meditation.

It’s not often we see five planets in one sign, and it wont last long. The Sun and the Moon will both enter Gemini in a few days.

Moon Conjunct Chiron; It’s All Coming Back

This morning, I found myself in contemplation for three hours while I sat in the morning sun. My attention was once again brought back to the North Node in my birth chart, and my ascendant (1’43 Leo).

The North Node represents where you’re going in this lifetime. It also represents the energy that needs to be harnessed to fulfill our soul’s mission.

My North Node is located on the 29th degree of Leo in the 2nd House. The star, Regulus (The Lion’s Heart) is also on the 29th degree of Leo. So, I have this conjunction between Regulus and the North Node.

The timing of this, of course, is perfect because May is the month when Regulus shines the brightest after the sun sets.

God already showed me that I was Gaius Octavius in a previous life, but that whole thing started flooding back again. I guess I missed something. For those who don’t know, Gaius Octavius was the First Roman Emperor (Caesar Augustus).

So, what did I miss?

Well, the 12th House is the end. I have Cancer in the 12th House, and on the 29th degree, there’s Orcus retrograde. Leo is tied to Italy and Rome, and Orcus is believed to have had a temple built in Palatine Hill, Italy. The connection I missed was that Augustus had his Imperial Palace built there.

My chart picks up from there with the 1st House beginning on the feast day of Mary Magdalene (7/22, which is also the first degree or first day the sun enters Leo). Metis, the Roman Goddess of wisdom and deep thought is on the 12th degree of Leo, and the only 1st House Placement I have. Which is kind of interesting because as you can see, I do a lot of deep thinking.

As far as my chart goes, I’m going to stop there. I didn’t want to tell you every specific detail about this morning’s meditation session, but I had to mention the part I did so you would understand the Moon’s placement for this morning.

At 10:52 this morning, the waning crescent Moon was located on the 17th degree of Aries in the 9th House. The Moon was in conjunction with Chiron, and both formed a square with Mars on the 27th degree of Cancer in the 12th House. Chiron was the wisest of the Centaurs and he was a teacher. A Chiron/Moon conjunction in Aries in the 9th House will bring all the subconscious and hidden thoughts and memories about the self to the surface.

Contemplation about past lives and reincarnation is a 9th House thing.

Can you see how that works?

The ninth house is the house of the higher mind, philosophical thinking, long-distance travel, and higher education. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and the ruler of the 1st House. The first house is the house of self. It’s who you are, were, and will be.

The Midheaven in my birth chart is 17 degrees Aries. That’s where the Moon was this morning. Chiron was using the power of the moon and the moon’s placement to to show me the highest point or culmination point of my chart as it related to my first house of self, Leo.

It was showing me that in a past life, I had everything. I was the Frist Emperor of Rome. That’s why I have the Jupiter 7th degree/Mars 12th degree conjunction in Virgo in the second house. That’s abundance through action, aggression, and war. Jupiter and Mars in the second house is acquiring possessions in abundance through conquering, through war.

But they’re both retrograde.

As a matter of fact, Orcus, Metis, Make Make, Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto are all retrograde stretching from the 29th degree of cancer in the 12th House, to the 21st degree of Libra in the 4th House.

And if all those retrogrades represent not an open door, but a closed one and a review of my past lives, than this life begins with me personifying Uranus, the Awakener, and the God of my sign, Aquarius.

The seventh house sun (18 degrees Aquarius) is born in bondage, but wakes up, breaks free and gains independence (Uranus).
