June Full Moon of the Phoenix Rising from the Ashes

Forgive in order to be Healed!

The Celestial Mansion visited by the June full moon is that of Ophiuchus. This mansion used to be occupied by the Scorpion. However, the Scorpion fell out of  the Zodiac belt and Ophiuchus stepped in.

Ophiuchus is also known as Asclepius, Master of healing, prophecy and truth. His symbol is the snake, representing healing and wisdom. He is also Imhotep: doctor, sage, high priest, scribe, visionary, astrologer and hereditary noble. Asclepius learned how to overcome aging and death by observing a serpent using healing herbs. To prevent humans from becoming immortal, Zeus killed Asclepius with a thunderbolt, but later placed him in the sky in honor of his good work. In other words Asclepius rose from the ashes of death and became immortal among the stars...the phoenix rising from the ashes.

This Celestial Mansion represents 'the baby in the basket' archetype. Moses, Perseus, Prince Phillip and others who were smuggled out of danger to safety, only to come back to reclaim their glory and shaming the enemy...the phoenix rising from the ashes. 

In the minor arcana of the Tarot, he is the 9 of Wands. Although the warrior is wounded, he rises from his misfortune to fight yet another battle....phoenix rising from the ashes. The 9 of Wands (Ophiuchus / Antares) is also about karma and the past coming back to haunt us. The wounded healer must release the past in order to move forward.

In the Major Arcana, he is Temperance. Finding a balance between light and shadow. Bringing about transformation by blending two opposites. Water signifies emotions. Turning fear into faith and hatred into forgiveness. Blending what we learned from past hurts and mistakes to use it to our advantage in the future.

Transformation is one of its main themes. Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice and is normally fought for. This is a mansion for fighting fears and for standing up for what you believe in to bring about transformation.

When a planet moves through Ophiuchus it vibrates the energy of healing and transformation. We are given the opportunity to heal, to forgive, and to let go of the past in order to manifest positive change and healing. Social change is also possible, but like the 9 of wands, we have to fight for it. 

This is also the full moon of the Pentecost. In Acts 2 verse 3 we read that the 'Holy Spirit' appeared in the form of flames, like the phoenix rising from the ashes. People received the gift of speaking in other languages to spread the message of forgiveness in order to be healed... the phoenix rising from the ashes.

Archangel Uriel: helps us shine our divine light and find our divinely designed life purpose.
Made more hardy, tolerant and moderate by time and exeprience.

I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence us here on earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolizes for all to follow and enjoy.

Marker Star: Antares (Red Royal star) and Rastaban (Dragon's Eye): 
Heart of the Scorpio: 16° 40 Scorpio to 0° 00 Sagittarius (sidereal) 12°40' - 26° Sagittarius (tropical).

Ruled by: Mercury (mind / thinking), Uriel (flame of God) and Indra (the powerful).


Symbols: Shield (protection); a spear (warfare).
                 Orouboros (circles of life and death, reincarnation).
                 Scorpio's heart - the eldest - patriarch - matriarch,
                 Circular amulet, umbrella, earring.

Antares Numbers: 18 and 9 (numbers of magic and rituals).

Antares Power Colors: Red, Purple and Turquoise. 

Positive Energy Vibrated: Unlock your personal power and emerge victoriously. Protecting loved ones. Past experience will guide you to use your resources for maximum benefit. Be energetic and enthusiastic.

Negative Energy: Warfare, deceit, revenge and karmic lessons. Dreams, nightmares, restlessness, turbulent emotions. Guard against over-indulgence.

The Scorpion was placed in the sky by Artemis as a reminder that betrayal, jealousy, deception and revenge can kill you. Anger is one syllable away from d-anger.

When the Moon is in the Antares Mansion we may feel unsettled in our minds.  It is fine to protect what and who we love but curb the tendency to want to take revenge.  Since Mercury rules cars and the Moon rules emotions (eg anger) and Mercury and the Moon don't get along, it is a good idea to watch yourself on the roads and be on guard against road rage. Avoid travelling in airplanes especially from or to airports that lie in the Southwest of a city. A good day for travelling by water. Analyse emotions of anger (Moon) and think them through rationally (Mercury). Think before you lash out to sting people. This energy reveals deceit, betrayal and enemies.  Avoid potentially explosive situations. This energy is mystical. Visions and dreams range on a continuum from good (guiding you) to bad (deceiving you, as in nightmares). The challenge lies in distinguishing between them and then focusing on our deepest desires. Remember, where the mind goes, the body follows. Encounters with the spirit world, angels and ancestors are possible. A good mansion for mystics, psychics, musicians and jobs that require artistic vision. This Mansion is also good for law, medicine and money making. This Mansion is good for beginning court actions and secret operations, but bad for marriage and relationships. 

Step into Magic: Develop new ideas, increase wealth. Feel your dream inside of you and know that the universe will bring to you what you desire. Use music and art to enhance your work. Visualize and co-create your future as symbolized by the Ouroboros, the snake that swallows its own tail. Be open to receive messages from the Angels. Re-write your life story and be the hero of your own adventure.
Dark Magic: Antares causes separation through death or divorce. Can bring punishment, poisoning, backstabbing, secrecy, sorcery, exorcism, black magic, horror and murder. Good for writing books to this effect.

Magic in the Psalms:
Psalm 4 - against insomnia, for a restful sleep without nightmares.
Psalm 39 - for peace of mind.

Legend: Orion boasted that he would kill all of the wild animals on earth, which prompted Artemis (Mistress of Animals) to send a scorpion to bring about his death.  It is also said that she killed Orion with her bow and arrow. Protect animals to improve your karma.

Prayer to Archangel Uriel (Flame of God): guardian of Antares; truth and justice; and thunder and terror.

O illustrious Saint Uriel, the Archangel of God's Divine Justice.  As you hold the heavenly scales that weigh our lives on earth, we ask you to intercede for us, that God may forgive us all our sins. Obtain for us the grace of true repentance and conversion of heart that we may be spared bad karma. Offer our prayers to the Divine Power in our search for true peace and happiness founded on truth and justice. Grant us the virtue of forgiveness, so that we may be healed. Amen.

Affirmation: The Divine Light shines upon my soul and radiates to all around me.
