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.
