In Love With the Fame

With Venus in the 10th House right now, love and beauty entered the realm of career and public reputation. I wouldn’t be wrong to assume love could be used to further your personal goals and agenda in this area as well. I’m not suggesting you sleep with the boss to get that promotion you want so bad, but if you put a little extra care and love into your pursuits, it might really pay off.

It’s possible a recent career choice has made you very happy, and the truth here is when you love what you do for a living, everything else seems to follow.

The 10th House is also an area that represents a place you’ve arrived at through your own efforts. Don’t be afraid to show a kinder and more loving side of yourself if you’re not seen in that way already.

Cancer is the sign here, and Cancer is the sign of home and family. At this time, I would look for opportunities coming by way of the family. Sometimes, a parent or a sibling might have a friend or know someone who could be of help to you.

A lot of people don’t recognize this, but the home and family play a huge part in where you end up in life. The 4th House (home and family) represents your foundation, and parents who are well known and successful in their careers tend to have children who follow suit. Family members can open doors for us that friends can’t.

But, let’s not get too wrapped up in the 4th House because we’re talking about the 10th House. If you’re looking to increase your popularity and gain more recognition or even fame, it’s hard to ignore someone who genuinely loves. Right? Doesn’t love conquer all?

Moon Scope; Breakout Time

April 26, 2023 Edition

Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to this April 26, 2023 Edition of Moon Scope.

As April comes to an end, we find our waxing crescent moon that’s 6 1/2 days old in the astrological sign of Cancer, and honestly, we couldn’t ask for a better sign to have a moon placement because the Moon rules Cancer. The Moon is home in Cancer, which means the lunar energy will be at its strongest and most prominent.

In the chart I pulled at 9:55 this morning, the Moon was in the 1st house on Cancer’s 21st degree.

The waxing crescent phase is one that’s all about action, and as the Moon’s light brightens up the first house, “the self” comes into focus.

When we take Moon’s phase and the fact that Mars is within 5 degrees of the Moon into consideration, there’s an aggressive approach to some delicate energy here, and the message is to do whatever you have to do to be nurturing towards yourself.

Compassionate, passionate, nurturing, receptive, and sensitive are all words that describe our zodiac’s Crab, and because Cancer is in the 1st house instead of its natural home, the 4th, the attention shifts from home and family to ourselves personally. A lot of people give us shit and call us selfish when we put ourselves first, but taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish.

Most of us possess Cancer-like energy because I think we’re at our happiest when we’re surrounded by family and things that are familiar to us, but my interpretation of this alignment is that it’s time to step out of our comfort zones. It’s time to get away from the familiar and seek new unfamiliar people and experiences that are going to help us grow as individuals.

The crab is the symbol for Cancer, and crabs have a hard, impenetrable shell that protects everything soft and vulnerable underneath. At the first signs of danger, the crab may retreat back into its shell and rush off into the water where it feels safe.

With Mars at our side, it’s definitely not a time to retreat. We are being nudged to break out of our shells. Don’t worry about being vulnerable, and don’t worry about what people are going to think or say when they see the real you.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone! So, before I begin this post, I just wanted to share some not so good news. Smorgasbord 3 Prophecy and Poverty was turned down by Llewellyn Publishing, and I have some mixed emotions about that. It’s not the end of the world, but the reasons they gave for why they decided to “pass” on it, didn’t seem sincere.

I’d hate to say this, but when your writing is real, intuitive, and comes from the heart, mainstream book publishing companies can be like mainstream news stations. In addition, people are jealous and envious. It’s not uncommon for ideas, and as my brother calls it, mental property to be cherry picked and straight up stolen. The next thing you know, the brother of the woman who works for the publishing company publishes a book with everything I just talked about, but it’s okay for him. I hope that isn’t the case here, but it does happen.

My writing is excellent and my thoughts are brilliant, and there isn’t another creator out here that compares. In 2019 when I handed the original Smorgasbord manuscript in, I set a new standard and broke ground then in the book industry, because my work was uncategorizable and original.

Smorgasbord, as a series, is way ahead of its time, and some people are starting to wake up to that.

Let’s get on with it shall we..


Tonight, as we all know, is August 11th, and the moon this evening will be fully illuminated at 100%. After tonight, we’ll have one more full moon on September 10th in Pisces, and that will be the last full moon of our 2022 summer season.

Right now, the moon is in a conjunction with Saturn in Aquarius in the 1st House. These two planets are separated by 5 degrees. This alignment is almost identical to where these two planets were in the astrological chart for the JFK assassination. At 12:30 PM on November 22, 1963, the moon and Saturn were in a conjunction in Aquarius, but in the 12th house. They were separated by 6 degrees, and almost occupied the exact same degrees.

This current moon phase began on July 28th, last month, and tonight, it finally culminates in the sign of the Water Bearer. This new moon was powerful because if you remember, it was home in Cancer. The seeds were sown as we engaged in issues revolving around our home, our roots and who we truly are, and maybe even our mother. And as this cycle culminates, we find it doing so in Aquarius.

Aquarius is the sign of friendship and the future. It’s fixed air, and it’s intellectual. When the intellect is involved (element of air) focus becomes the key for enjoyment. Be present, and be in the moment. We love history, and we love dreaming about the future, but nothing is more important than what you’re doing at this moment.

If you think about where we started, and where we’re at now, this full moon should’ve or should be revealing something to you about yourself as it sits in the first house of self. You’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about who you are, and where you came from, and whenever we have those thoughts, it’s natural for us to think about where we’re going or where we would like to be.

The moon’s conjunction with Saturn in the first house is waking you up to the reality that you are in full control over your life and your future. It’s waking you up to the reality that windfalls are few and far between. Some people can get from point A to point B in a year, and some people can get to B in ten years.

How we get there, and when we get there in this case, isn’t important. All that matters is that you get to point B. Maybe it’s not the prettiest way and maybe it’s not the fastest way, but a step-by-step methodical approach can get you to where you want to be.

A strong foundation is important, and in this moon phase, our home, our roots, and our deepest inner being is directly connected to our future hopes and wishes. The answers you seek are within you.

At this moment, if you’re doing what you need to do, and you’re not cutting corners or taking the easy way out, then you’re in favor with the universe! Big time!!

Remain positive, and hope and wish for all the wonderful things you want and feel like you deserve. You’ll be shocked at what flows into your life.

Your mother is also a key figure here. Let her know she’s appreciated, and thank her for doing what she does. The full moon is a time of culmination, enjoy it.

Cardinal Quality

If you’ve been keeping up with the posts here on NB, you probably recall the post “Cardinalis” written a day or two ago. Cardinal comes from the Latin word meaning important, and we learned a little something about the importance of the red bird.

People from all over the world associated with many different cultures, religions, and spiritual practices have different interpretations of a cardinal when it’s spotted, but there’s one thing that cannot be changed or interpreted-the root.

Today, we’ll look at cardinal in a different context. Today, we’ll let the bird go, and turn our attention to the word.

The bird bird bird, the bird’s the word…lol! Just kidding.

Okay, astrologically speaking, the term cardinal is a quality, and it represents a quadruplicity of signs. There are 12 astrological signs, and 4 of them are cardinal. 4 are fixed, and 4 are mutable, but because of the bird, we’re going to focus on cardinal-the astrological quality.

Just to rehash, cardinal comes from the Latin word cardinalis, pertaining to a hinge; applied to that on which something turns or depends. It’s strange how all this stuff ties together, but check this out; Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are the astrological signs that are cardinal, and yes, they’re of great importance. In the northern hemisphere, the sun passes through Aries at the spring equinox, Cancer at the summer solstice, Libra at the time of the autumn equinox, and Capricorn when the winter solstice has arrived.

Applied to that which something turns or depends? Yup! It’s the turning of the seasons, and our calendar system, and means for keeping track of real time depends on the location of these celestial markers…

Symbolism, the human subconscious, deeper meaning-this is all high level thinking, but if we keep connecting dots and pulling at strings, perhaps, someday, all the secrets of the universe will unravel and reveal a complete picture.
