It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

08-08-08 Wedding Date Bliss Or Miss?

August 9th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Chinese Wedding PhotoNot as many people got married yesterday as they did a year ago on 07-07-07!  Yet, those who did, will be happy to know that according to Chinese numerologists 8-8-8 is a very lucky combination.  The number 8 means wealth and prosperity and apparently the word “eight” sounds like “to get rich” in Mandarin.

The same is true in western numerology, where the emphasis is also on money and is believed to be a good year for a prosperous marriage.  What about astrology, however?  Well, lo and behold, yesterday (in general) was a better day for tying the knot than 07-07-07.   

The Solar SystemFirst of all the Sun is in Leo, and Leo being a fixed sign means that it’s a good time for starting any venture: a marriage, a business, a partnership, etc., because anything you start under a fixed sign is difficult to breakup or dissolve.  Secondly, Leo is the fifth sign which rules Love Relationships and Children, which is perfect for most couples getting married.

Looking deeper into where the Moon was yesterday and you come up with the Moon in Scorpio.  According to Hindu Astrology, it favors more a man’s chart than a woman’s, but Scorpio is another fixed sign. It rules the 8th House which pertains in part to our sex life; the Moon deals with the emotions.  

Wedding PhotoI’m generalizing here, when I say that for most couples who got married yesterday, they’re off to a good start.  It takes a lot more to see what will happen in a marriage.  The 7th House is important because it rules Marriages and Partnerships.  Venus the planet of Love is also important and each couple’s chart has to be studied to find the aspects not only between the planets and houses, but also in relationship to one another’s charts. 

For those who got married yesterday (and today), one thing to watch out for though is a tendency toward jealousy.  This is a Scorpion trait that is brought on even more rapidly by the Moon.

Maya Muses:  For all those June brides to be, Gemini is a dual sign, meaning more than one; it would be better to choose a wedding date around a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius).  There just might be a lot less marriages ending in divorce that way!

    I picked a Tarot-card yesterday and got,10 of pentacles…Wealth!…

    I actually picked it for what the Madrid “adventure” would mean for Tina,myself and others…

    A good card, I think…
    It stands for communication too…to share your inner riches…which I think Geraldine,Carlos and the rest of the people involved in the Innocence “thing” do…
    It tells Us, to dare to express the energies we have within ourselves…To see the riches We have inside…

    Ulf is a Leo…his birthday is on the 13th!He will be 51!Can’t believe it…
    It would be interesting to do a chart again on both of us…As soon as I find the exact time..I have them somewhere….

    Okay…have to go put on some clothes and go out..for a refreshing walk…

    By the way!
    Niel Young was great!He is an amazing man!
    Ulf was very happy!

    I was talking with Tina on the phone,when he came home…very late…
    She is in love…aahhh,that feeling….I remember it like yesterday….
    But what I feel now is…well, it has more “meat on the bones”,if you know what I mean…
    Instead of being a rosebud it is a rose in full bloom…and that is wonderful!

    Yes, she mentioned to me in an e-mail that she had met someone. I wish her all the best! Like you said, it’s a wonderful feeling when you first fall in love, but it’s also wonderful to grow and feel comfortable in love, and that comes with time.
