A Beginning Ending in Darkness

December 22, 2022

Intro Story

Luger sat contemplating his future. Days and nights were passing by at warp speed as he applied for one job after another. Amazed, he could do nothing but laugh as the bills were piling up on his desk. “Why do the bills seem to come in faster when you don’t have money to pay for them,” he thought to himself.

He took a deep breath in, held it, and exhaled. The pressure was mounting, and this is how he coped with that feeling in his chest. Every night, as he lay in bed starring at the ceiling, he thought about how he could change his life. He needed a fresh start- a new beginning. Or maybe, he needed to just keep trying and pushing. He didn’t know anymore. Then, something pulled him out of bed at three o’clock in the morning, and he found himself looking out of his bedroom window starring at the sky. The thin slice of light in the heavens marked the end of the current moon cycle, for tomorrow, it would be dark.

Moon Analysis

Tomorrow night (December 23) as the sun sets in the evening on the second degree of Capricorn, and the sky darkens, the stars shine extra bright in the absence of moonlight. The new moon in Capricorn will be last new moon of the year leaving us feeling like it’s the beginning of the end. Literally, it is. We get a new moon-a new beginning that will carry us into a new year as 2022 closes out and comes to an end.

There’s definitely pressure mounting, but we block it out for the sake of the holiday season. We’re feeling grounded, and our approach at this time can be purely sensual. We want to laugh as we gather with friends and family. We want to enjoy the moment and take in the beauty that surrounds us. Christmas music, good food, colorful lights, kissing under the mistletoe; we bask in the spirit.

Something deeply important is masked by it all though, and we’re feeling that as well. The cardinal quality of Capricorn bestows us with leadership energy and an enterprising attitude, which will come in handy as we address issues pertaining to our reputation, career paths, and public image. Those are all 10th House issues, the home of Capricorn and her ruler, Saturn.

This is the perfect time, if you can, to meditate and pray. Go within, go deep within and ask for guidance. You see, most of us will head into 2023 with a list of things we want to change and goals we’d like reach. Every year, we have new year’s resolutions, and like an annual tradition, most of us will come in like a lion but go out like a lamb; meaning, half way through the year we’ll have forgotten about what we set out to do or change.

It’s different now though, and that’s because of the new moon. Instead of generating a list of things, pick a few that are really important to you. Concentrate, and plant those seeds. The point is to create your new beginning now, so when January 1st arrives, you’ll already be in flow! That’s quite an opportunity.

Capricorn’s influence on the lunar energy is persistent but patient, steady, consistent, and dependable. We take advantage of every opportunity on our way up. There will be obstacles, and there will be limitations, but discipline will help us overcome. For tips on how to deal with Saturn’s limitations at this time, we can look to his position in Aquarius. It’s really interesting how Saturn at one time, ruled both Capricorn and Aquarius. He rules Capricorn now, but in a sense, he returned to his old sign for this year’s end.

As 2022 comes to an end, and darkness descends upon us, we can’t help but think about a new beginning, but this year, we’re focusing more on the beginning gifted by the new moon, not the one marked by the calendar. And it only makes sense to do so because every new calendar year comes to an end-it’s a never-ending repeating cycle of beginnings and endings.

The moon isn’t going anywhere and the opportunity it’s giving us now involves the creation of a beginning that will last forever.

Story Ending

I guess we’ll find out what happens to Luger in 2023. πŸ˜‰

And now, I will wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a happy holiday season, and blessed new year. It’s a tradition here at Nooz Buffet for us to take off the last week of the old year and first week of the new year. It’s well deserved and this year will be no different. So, you won’t see anything new up on here until the second week of January.

Friends, Followers, and Fans, I love you, and I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for another amazing year, and I’ll see you in 2023.

Coming Up, Capricorn

The approximate dates for Capricorn are December 22nd through January 19th. After leaving the astrological sign of Sagittarius, the Sun enters Capricorn, and as far as our calendar is concerned, that’s in three more days. So, I will take this moment to wish the Capricorns around the world a happy birthday! πŸ§πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸ’•

Each one of the zodiac signs represents a part of the body; Capricorn governs joints, knees, and bones, therefore, those born with their natal sun in Capricorn are prone to stiffness and orthopedic problems. The symbol representing Capricorn is The Goat. Goats are know for ascending to the highest heights. They take advantage of every opportunity along the way, and they’re particularly known for their steadiness and dependability.

Capricorn is a feminine earth sign, and its quality is cardinal. Cardinal, meaning its a sign of action, initiative, and leadership, but Capricorns are also very reserved. They’re patient and avoid using force.

Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn, and Saturn is a bit misunderstood as he’s often associated with evil. Saturn isn’t really evil. His methods are difficult and it seems like he’s always trying to teach us a lesson, but in all fairness, Saturn rules time. His primary role is that of a limiter. Capricorn gets her patience and perseverance from Saturn, and a person who understands and learns how to deal with time has established harmony with Father Time (Saturn).

As the 10th sign of the zodiac, Capricorn rules the 10th House, and the 10th House deals with our careers, our reputations, and how we’re seen in the eyes of the public.

The polarity for Capricorn is Cancer. If you look at the zodiac wheel, you’ll notice it consists of 12 signs. Each sign has a polar opposite, and that polarity must be brought into balance. Cancer is feminine water, and it’s also cardinal. Capricorn rules the career, work, and reputation, and Cancer represents the home and love. That’s a polarity we can all relate to, the balance between work and our private lives.

Capricorn’s lucky day is Saturday, and her lucky numbers are 2 and 8. I think it’s pretty cool and lucky if you’re a Capricorn born on January 2nd or January 8th, or December 28th.

Alright everyone, have a great night.

Moon Scope

July 12, 2022.

Good Morning!

Currently, the moon is on the 3rd degree of Capricorn. Capricorn is one of four cardinal signs, it’s duality is feminine, it’s element is earth, and it’s ruling planet is Saturn.

Traditionally, or naturally I should say, Capricorn is a tenth house sign, and the tenth house deals with career and public image.

Tonight’s moon is almost 14-days old, and it will be a waxing gibbous lit up at 98%.

The subconscious stew is bubbling up in the cauldron, and what rises to the surface is thoughts pertaining to public image. There’s obviously a direct connection between our career and the way the public sees us.

No matter how right or wrong it is, there are people who judge us based on what we do for a living. Personally, I don’t care to much about what people think of me, but on the flip side, no one likes to be misunderstood.

So, the greatest advice at this time would be to make to present yourself accordingly. Be as direct and as specific as you can be, and do it with consistency. Check and double check your social media profiles and make sure you’re projecting an image your satisfied with. At the end of the day, people are going to say shit no matter what, but the secret is that you have more control over that than you think.

Now, because the moon is in Capricorn and both are in the 4th house, there’s a connection between roots and home, and you’re career.

The energy I feel with this is suggesting more importance behind your job choice. For some people finding the right career is everything. For some people, any old job isn’t good enough, they want something that’s going to reflect who they truly are. And ultimately, that’s a win win for the employer and the employee or the person who goes into business for him or herself.

Be nice to your mother and the woman in your life.

Lucky Numbers are 2 and 8.

Have a wonderful day!

Moon-Scope; Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth

April 21, 2022

πŸŒ– Moon in β™‘ Capricorn

Hello everyone! The Moon is currently in the astrological sign of Capricorn, where it will remain until tomorrow, Friday the 22nd. Without looking to see, “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” I’m pretty sure means to not push your luck. If someone is kind enough or generous enough to give you something or do something for you, just take it and say thank you. What’s the connection? Capricorn rules goats and cloven hoofed animals-that means horses.

That being said, something unexpected my be coming your way. Don’t question where it came from, who, why, or how. Just accept it, and be on your way. Chances are, it’s well deserved. Capricorn is patient in its search for security. The Goat is also reserved, but when the time is right, she’s quick to seize the opportunity. When the Moon is in Capricorn, we sit back in a sense, and meticulously feel around for what’s pleasing to us. Problems are encountered when we finally attempt to seize what we’ve been working for and waiting on because suddenly, it’s not accessible.

For whatever reason; it’s blocked, someone’s in the way, there is no more, and so on. The lesson here is flexibility and in the balance, lies your happiness. We have to get creative, formulate new plans, and take alternate routes or ideas into consideration. One way or the other, we will get what we deserve, what’s owed, and what we’ve worked for. When the Moon’s in Capricorn we’ll figure out the smartest, most dedicated, and most disciplined ways of doing that.

Capricorn says “I USE.” When the Moon blends with Capricorn, no stone is left unturned, and every step is exhausted before the next is taken.

The πŸŒ–Moon in β™‘Capricorn in the 2nd House🏠.

When it’s 10 o’clock PM here on the east coast, it will be 7 o’clock out on the west coast, and the moon will be in Capricorn in the 2nd House. Naturally, Capricorn dwells in the 10th house, the house of public standing and career. So, lets bring the 10th house theme into the 2nd House. When the Moon blends with Capricorn the energies manifest in the arena of possessions. You will get whatever you want if you work for it in a disciplined and smart way. Saturn is involved here as the ruler of Capricorn, so you know whatever is going on involves discipline. All things in due time.

If you have been busting your ass and killing it at work, some type of recognition or reward is likely.

It’s the spring season. Usually when the spring arrives, it’s out with the old and in with the new. If you haven’t done that, it’s the perfect time to do so. Spend some time thinking about how you can bring harmony to your home. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant either; maybe a new centerpiece, flowers, or curtains.

At work, you seek praise and honor. If you want the bosses to notice you, spend some time thinking about how you can capture their attention. Make sure you have everything you need to be successful at the work you do.

Lucky Day for Capricorn: Saturday

Lucky Numbers are 2 and 8.

On Saturday, April 23, the Moon will be in its last quarter. Tonight, it’s 71% and waning, which means the visibility of the results from the last cycle is shrinking. I might’ve started analyzing the moon when it was full, and if that’s the case then I would take away from this cycle whatever you need, let the rest go, and we’ll start fresh on the 30th when the new moon arrives in Taurus.

Good night everyone, and thanks for visiting. Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish is available for purchase in paperback form, and you can find that online at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and almost anywhere books are sold. I think we have about another week or two until the e-book is available.

Have a blessed night and a wonderful day tomorrow.

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.
