The Moon in Aquarius can be a very tumultuous sign, especially for people that specifically have their Moon sign as Aquarius. This can create feelings of "futility," where it feels like the world is crashing down around you, with little to no hope of things ever being able to improve. This energy is especially prevalent in individuals that have their Sun sign in Aquarius, especially because of the double edged turbulence of the analytical mind fighting tooth and nail with the (often incorrect) intuitive stance, that gives this position of failure, defeat, and strife.

The seven of swords, in most tarot decks, show the nature of betrayal, deceit, but most importantly a secretive disposition, that enables the person represented in the reading. In the "Book of Thoth" written by Aleister Crowley, this card is shown as "futility," as the single word that is printed on the plate of the card. The top of the card shows a crescent moon, with the bottom of the card displaying the sign of Aquarius.

As a reader, it took me a long time to fully understand this card, until being around individuals that had their Moon in Aquarius. I noticed that most months, when it comes time for the Moon to roll around into Aquarius, these individuals didn't want to get out of bed, and if they did, were mad, cranky, upset, sad, and bewildered by the sheer absurdity of life itself, feeling that things were never going to get better, that no matter what they did, no matter the situation, things were going to be challenging. This would come in waves, I noticed, where during parts of the day, things might be fine, but then later in the day, as things got to be more challenging, the moods and tempers would flare (especially in the two individuals that I know that have both the Moon and Sun in Aquarius).

I soon began to realize that the nature of "futility" that Crowley referred to with this card was the measure of the feelings that this Moon sign was able to possess, but by virtue of using carefully placed maneuvers to understand the position that would be able to create an out for themselves, this feeling of futility would be vanquished. This card is not a set stance, but rather shows the actions that one would be able to utilize, to help themselves to create a stronger position of openness to overcome the challenges that they were hindered by.

Some people might refer to this card to someone attributed to thievery or stealing, but with the nature of the Moon in Aquarius, this is such that the analytical side of Aquarius, jaded by virtue of the Moon, is able to take a stance of not possessing the more analytical feature that would otherwise ring true with a Sun in Aquarius, which is typically a position of brilliance, and a reasonable standing of openness to logically understanding the ways of the world, often seeing the unjust nature of the world, doing what they feel can be done to right the wrongs they see. But with the Moon in Aquarius, the coin is flipped, thus providing a stance of feelings that are unjust being applied directly to themselves, feeling helpless to overcome this stance.

The Moon entered into Aquarius on April 9th, 2018 at 2:50 AM, EST and will remain until the Moon finally enters into creative Pisces at 2:40 AM, EST on April 11th, 2018. The next time that the Moon will be in Aquarius will be on May 6th, 2018 at 10:48 AM and will remain until May 8th, 2018 at 11:10 PM.


As I laid out in my previous article about the Blue Moon, this astrological event is occurring by way of the Full Moon traveling through Libra, which is able to create a stance of indecisiveness, but it is also able to generate an understanding for how to gain a structure of peace, by way of using the indecisive positions that we are able to find, as a means to gain introspection. Because of the position of the Sun in Aries, opposite of the Moon in Libra, this is able to create a more radical stance of fortitude, that can come across brash, harsh, or even forceful. This tends to occur when the Moon transits a Cardinal sign, such as Libra, but understanding the means for softening this position, to stop and think before speaking, and to move forward with a stance that creates peace and harmony, will help to diffuse arguments., tensions, and other impulsive reactions that would be able to come about, as a result of this. Because of Mercury being in retrograde, this is able to create furthered misunderstandings, when it comes to not allowing oneself to go with the flow.


Understanding the position of deep thinking, meditation, and introspection today and tomorrow (especially) will be able to help with the energies that will be playing out over the next 2-4 weeks, once the Sun moves into Taurus on the 20th of April, but also when Mercury shifts itself back into a direct motion on April 15th. Libra love analysis, and so the more that balance can be achieved through means of not just thinking about present positions, but how your actions will be able to effect the future, will be fundamental in avoiding any detriment created by this particular Blue Moon. Striving to avoid feeling any negative emotion in excess during this time will be helpful, because of the ways t hat this will allow focus to be brought into a situation with greater clarity, whether that emotions be anger, sadness, or even if these are positions of stress.

Although the Moon will be exiting Libra tomorrow evening, the energies from the Full and Blue Moon will have residual effects, especially because of the Mercury retrograde. As such, it is important to remember the nature of symbolism that is conveyed in the Tarot, with the Moon in Libra, as represented by the Two of Swords. This card, often times, can represent the significance of a crossroads that will be able to emerge, but it is also such that seeing a crossroads will not want to be handled by just wishing it away. A greater decision will have to be made, because of this energy, which is another element of how the deeper nature of introspection is able to play such an important role during this trajectory in the Zodiac. Using justice, that which is fair, and striving to avoid a partial tone to any situation during this time, is also something that will be important, to help to see both sides of the same coin. The Tarot deck that I use by Aleister Crowley, "The Book of Thoth" shows the word "peace" on the plate of the card, which is indicative of the means for peace that is gained by virtue of achieving the balance and harmony that this trajectory is able to create. Although a tough decision might be just around the corner, the Sun in Aries is the direct opposite of the Full Moon in Libra, which makes any crossroads having to be found with a solution of that which takes on one's resolve or that which takes on that which one feels is just. If you so happen to be an Aries, this could prove to be an extra trying time for you, but staying true to your resolve, and finding the stance for doing that which you know is right by your own self, will be able to serve as a compass for guiding you through the more challenging energies that would be able to unfold.

The Moon in Libra during the Sun in Aries is able to create a stronger stance of openness, when it comes to relationships. This is very positive, because of the ways that the energies conveyed throughout the rest of Aries will be able to generate new partnerships, but can also create an initiative for rekindling old romances, which will be made possible by those reentering from our past during the Mercury retrograde, as well as the powerful shift by Venus from Aries into Taurus.

Today marks the first day of Venus beginning its transit throughout the sign of Taurus, which is able to create a strong stance of fortitude, romantically. This energy will be in effect until April 24th, giving a bit more than three weeks to carry forth positions of love, as well as reopening paths that previously may have been felt as frustratingly complex. In Tarot, this is depicted with the Empress card and the Hierophant card, as a pair. The Empress is the epitome of feminine love, and the Hierophant is the gray area between what personal spirituality is and doing what is right, by others, but also pays favor to finding a spiritual stance that works for everyone, instead of his or herself as an individual. Venus ruling this sign is what gives Taurus the free-will to emotionally explore the avenues of what is "right," beyond this world, and love, being an immeasurable energy, goes hand in hand with the Hierophant's greater pursuits. Venus is able to create a softness to the deeper emotional impacts of love, whereas Taurus is able to systematically work through the challenging aspects of this, in its own analytical way, which is an energy that is able to go very well with the Moon in Libra, as far as the analytical positions that it is able to create go.

Staying positive, not giving into fear, and creating a resolve for knowing the ways that you want your romantic life to unfold and holding onto that position to create a positive manifestation, are among the best ways to deal with the, at times, tumultuous energies that are able to be felt. This really does have the potential to be incredibly positive, though, especially with these the Moon working with Libra, which is a sign that is traditionally ruled by Venus, as well as Venus working closely with Taurus, the other sign of the Zodiac that is rules over.

There will be more shifts, twists, and turns occurring in the next couple of weeks, that will also provide an opportunity to find a very grounded stance for dealing with these twists and turns, but truly what is life without a few curve balls?

This evening, at 7:19 PM EST, the Planet Mercury will be starting its track in retrograde, through the Zodiac Sign of Aries. This energy will be lasting until April 15th at 4:21 AM EST.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

This particular retrograde, because of its placement in Aries, is going to disrupt communication. This is such that it can easily create misunderstandings, arguments, and can displace common courtesies, due to the frustrations that it is able to bring about. Making sure that you are listening to others speak, and trying not to talk out of turn, is one element of what can make this energy easier to contend with. This energy doesn't allow for patience, which is where frustrations can ensue, but the more there is able to be a conscious understanding for the importance of patience in communication, the easier this can be to deal with.

Electronics are able to be influenced under the umbrella of this particular retrograde, as with most Mercury retrogrades, but this particular one can create malfunction, instead of generalized issues, which is another element of this that one should watch out for. Everything from cars to computers and everything in between can rake up costs over this period of time, if one is not careful to be mindful of recognizing issues, before they become serious problems. If you're oil light is on, for example, don't wait on it and if your check engine light is on, definitely get it checked out before we deepen ourselves into the harsher nature that this retrograde can create. If you can get these things done before the retrograde goes into effect this evening, that will be for the best, for anyone, because of the expenses that this would be able to create, otherwise.

For those of you that are creating plans, authoring books, journalists, etc., the Mercury retrograde in Aries is a wonderful time to go over work that you have already done, to analyze it, and to create a new draft for your project. In many respects, this retrograde can help to find completion in various forms, but understanding the importance for proofreading and applying a position of openness to criticism will also be very helpful to keep in mind. But for anyone providing criticism, now is the time to be honest, without say being brutally honest, because of the ways that this is able to create unnecessary rifts, hurt feelings, and furthered misunderstandings.

The Mercury retrograde effects different people in different ways, but even if you so happen to be fortunate enough to be born during a Mercury retrograde, keep in mind that the hindrances that this creates for others can inadvertently effect you. Individuals who are the Sun in Aries, Gemini, or Virgo will have strong effects from this energy. The placement of your Moon sign can also play a role to the more negative side of this, if it is any of these three signs.

Travel plans may see difficulties, but one thing that this retrograde can effect is the nature of how we become distracted. I implore each of you, don't text and drive, and be mindful of the world around you. Don't allow yourself to become so distracted that you find yourself in a dangerous situation, as being aware and cautious in said awareness will be a strong factor of how to overcome this retrograde, and still enjoy the pleasant energies that the Sun in Aries is able to create.

Below, you will find a link the an article I wrote about the energies of the Blue Moon, which also explains the different astrological events that will be coming around in the Aries season. I want to wish each of you a happy retrograde, and I do hope that you not only enjoy my articles, but that you are able to ascertain something from my writing, that might help you to bring balance in your daily lives.

As the saying goes, "once in a blue moon," meant to remind us of how rare some events in life can be. But this year has certainly epitomized what this statement means, whether you're aware of it, or not. From the highest positions in the world, to the lowest seats of society, the forthcoming energy of the next blue moon will be a test of human endurance, which will come into play on March 31st. Of course, a Blue Moon occurs when a single month contains two full moons, which if you will recall, also occurred in January. This is by virtue of the February Black Moon, an extra New Moon in the shortest month of the year, which occurs once every 19 years. This event is created by January having two Full Moons, thus giving March two Full Moons, as well.

Big things are happening, whether you want them to, or not. Things bigger than any one person, larger than any group in society, are coming for all of us, for better or for worse. We have already seen, since Jupiter started its transit through Scorpio back in October, the launch of the #MeToo movement, as well as #TimesUp. Jupiter moving through Scorpio is an event that I have been referring to as "Scorpio's Revenge," and all indications show that it is far from finished. Jupiter is perhaps the most virtuous Planet, in that  it will always strive to move us in the direction that we "ought"  to go in. Rebelling against this position can be very tricky, especially if you are rebelling by way of a hypocritical stance or a stance that is filled with nihilism. Jupiter's aim is to expand, even when it is in retrograde, but in retrograde Jupiter is able to hone in on more specific features of society, to invoke the expansion that it aims to create.

Jupiter's time in Scorpio is certainly nothing to scoff at! Scorpio is represented in Tarot as the Death card, which is the nature of changes and transformations, and shows the stages of change that are required, in order to achieve the greatest possible result. Again, going against the grain and fighting against these changes will be of no use, but more interestingly, with Neptune and Pluto both being in their preferred Zodiac signs, this enables Jupiter to have an astonishingly profound effect on society as a whole, especially younger generations.

The best thing to do is ready yourself for the ensuing changes that will emerge and be open to said changes. Rebelling is the worst thing that you can do, and even if you think that various aspects of society and not changing your world view won't impact you, I would implore you to rethink this position. One of the hardest things in life is realizing, so often far too late, that everything one thought one knew was inherently wrong. But knowing how to use moments like this to create a furthered understanding for what the world, the universe, and even life is, can help to create empathy for others, as well as can create a deeper capacity for finding acceptance in the curve balls that life throws our way.

Here is what the astrology will look like on the day of the Full Moon, on March 31st, where I hope that you will gain an understanding for the short term and long term implications for this very powerful energy of change that will be forthcoming.

 

SUN IN ARIES (March 20th, 2018 - April 20th, 2018):  The Sun in Aries, the first star in the first sign, is very virtuous in its placement especially for there being such a strong energy present during the second Blue Moon of the year. The sun is best suited in this sign, because of the natural flow of the Zodiac and the quest for individuality that the sun ascribes for each of us. As such, Aries, is the Emperor in the Tarot. This is the naturally flowing ability for adhering to fortitude and creates a stance of conquest that begets strife and then ultimately victory. Aries, the season of Spring in the Tropic of Cancer, is a perfect time in the Zodiac for trying new things and creating endeavors, especially when there is a Blue Moon during Aries. The fortitude that this creates is very positive, certainly, but one thing to watch out for is to make sure that self-interest is not the driving position from your perspective. Finding ways to do things for a greater good or to help those with the work that you do, to benefit others, in lieu of yourself, can help the karma boomerang to send this back your way down the road.

MOON IN LIBRA (March 30th, 2018 - April 1st, 2018): The Moon in Libra is very fitting for this Blue Moon. Represented by the two of swords, this moon enables peace and tranquility, which are able to be found if we just close our eyes and let the Universe guide us forward. This can represent the nature of a crossroads, and in this case, I would absolutely say that  it does, because of the changes that are so apparent in the other parts of the Planets' placement in the Zodiac. Fighting this leads to discord, disharmony, strife, fatigue, and frustration. An important element of this to remember is that changing the way that you look at the world, even if it is just to empathize with those that you might have a difficult time empathizing with, is a requirement for this to be felt in its most virtuous stance.

MERCURY (RETROGRADE) IN ARIES (March 6th, 2018 - May 13th, 2018): Mercury, the Planet that rules Gemini and Virgo, finds its position in Aries during this Blue Moon, in retrograde. This is another VERY important part of this to pay attention to. Hypocrisy is to be avoided, at all costs, while this energy is in full swing. This can lead to events in life that are able to be very explosive just by way of choosing to take on a more hypocritical stance. Even if it is something that you might think is benign, I cannot stress enough the importance of avoiding hypocrisy during this time. Use the understanding of how negative hypocrisy can be, to allow your thoughts and viewpoints to change. I would give specific examples of this, but I certainly wouldn't want to upset anyone, nor would I want to find myself in a position of inadvertently becoming hypocritical. As a Gemini, hypocrisy is one of the traits on my negative spectrum that I have spent a lifetime striving to avoid. The way I have avoided this is by saying what I mean and meaning what I say, but I have also found that to judge anyone for anything is the fastest road towards hypocrisy. None of this would be as big of a deal, were it not for the Blue Moon, Jupiter in Scorpio, and even Uranus in Aries. Of course, the same rules will apply to travel, communication, misunderstandings, etc., as is typical of any Mercury retrograde. But do prepare for this one to be quite tumultuous. The dates of the Mercury retrograde will be from March 23rd through April 15th. 

VENUS PART ONE: VENUS IN ARIES (March 6th, 2018 - March 31st, 2018): Venus in Aries is the equivalent to getting the Emperor and the Empress in a Tarot reading, to an extent. The energies in the 2018 Venus in Aries cycle are going to have a strong presence of friendship that will forge strong lasting bonds, many of which will be felt in a powerfully driven way. This is where people coming together to make plans, deals, arrangements, etc., in such a way that it ignores a self-serving disposition, will find a remarkable initiative in such ventures. This is one of the most positive elements of the placement of the stars during this cycle, because of the ways that this will create an undeniable need to be outgoing, to connect with others, and will create the ability to dance like nobody's watching! Don't be afraid to be emboldened, to stand up for what you believe in. And certainly hold strong to the courage of your convictions! The last day of Venus in Aries is the day of the Blue Moon, but this energy will carry over, strongly, where both effects of the respective Zodiac signs on the Planet Venus will be extraordinary.

VENUS PART TWO: VENUS IN TAURUS (March 31st, 2018 – April 24th, 2018) through Venus in Taurus, occurring at the latter parts of the Blue Moon, has a tremendous impact on the nature of love and relationships, and also provides the means for relationships to be felt in a lighthearted, yet deeply emotional way. Venus rules Taurus (as well as Libra), so it is virtuous in this stance, as it enables the creation and fortitude of romance, while incorporating the elements of a relationship that are drawn to deeper commitments. This energy will be playing a positive role for people all across the globe, if close attention is paid to the nature of what is needed to find this greater stance of virtue, as subscribed by the other Planets during this time. This shows that, even in the most chaotic times, peace can be felt by way of love, and beauty can be appreciated through shared experiences, that allow stronger stances for change to emerge and unfold.

MARS IN CAPRICORN (March 17th, 2018 – May 16th, 2018):Mars in right where it wants to be, in the Earth sign of Capricorn, but with the opposing Planets in opposing signs, this can also be a VERY hindering factor, personality-wise, when it comes to the effects of the Blue Moon and the other astrological and astronomical events that are occurring. This energy is all about ego, but it is also about the drive that ego can create, to benefit work projects, new endeavors, business, finance, etc. Ego is attached to everyone, but to weaponize the ego for the benefits of self-interest will want to be avoided, as this will be able to lead to a position of feeling trapped and in turmoil. While Mars is in Capricorn, focusing on the elements of work, career, and finance that are able to be beneficial for everyone involved is of the utmost importance. This is in contrast to the positions of the Sun and Venus in Aries, specifically because of ego, but focusing on the overall benefit of any work related endeavors, and not so much about the paycheck that is the reward, is something that will help you to adhere to the more virtuous positions of the Blue Moon energy, and will create a more tranquil initiative.

JUPITER (RETROGRADE) IN SCORPIO (October 10th, 2017 – November 8th, 2018): I covered this extensively in the paragraphs above, because this is the main theme that the world is taking in right now. Virtue meets transformation is how this should be viewed, and I feel that I can’t state that enough. The Zodiac is experiencing much tumult and is testing the stance of human nature, but knowing this and knowing how to combat this, to become the best versions of ourselves, is all we can ever do. C’est la vie! Retrograde dates will be from March 8th through July 10th.

SATURN IN CAPRICORN (December 29th, 2017 – March 21st, 2020: Saturn, as a Planet, will test you every chance it gets. God help anyone that is born with Saturn in Capricorn, as it is able to create a nature of ruthlessness that is hard to find paralleled. Saturn will go out of its way, in the course of someone’s life, to allow opportunities to overcome ruthlessness, and for those that pass these tests, life can be VERY rewarding. But going through this position, as a human being, can make for late breaking news cycles, and will be showing in everyone from business owners to world leaders, lessons in humility, which is going to be going hand in hand with Scorpio’s revenge, as Jupiter makes its way through that cycle. This cycle will end up being the repercussions of Jupiter in Scorpio, as events come down the pike. This is going to have a heavy impact on #MeToo and #TimesUp, as well as the #NeverAgain movement. This will also, for the next couple of years create a rollercoaster of instability in financial institutions, banks, bitcoin, etc. on a global scale. Using caution while this energy is present

URANUS IN ARIES (May 27th, 2010 – May 15th, 2018): Expect the unexpected. And don't be stubborn! This has been making a very, very long transit that, for me, has seemed to be never ending, but has been very rewarding since it began. Since this energy started, I have come back full time to Keen, after having a stressful and demanding position for AT&T. I have moved from Las Vegas, lived there for two years, and then moved back to Missouri, to purchase my parent’s home, so that they could downsize, have gotten married, etc. So it certainly has been a time of experiencing unexpected, yet very rewarding events.  

NEPTUNE IN PISCES (February 3rd, 2012 - March 30th, 2025): Create, don't destroy! Unless it’s your ego! This is a demand that Neptune is able to establish, when moving through Pisces, but having an understanding for how to overcome the challenges that the ego can create will be a vital tool over this 14 year cycle. Look within, to understand what is outside. As of February 3, 2012, Neptune made the jump from Aquarius into Pisces, starting the long and often contentious navigation through one of its preferred signs of the Zodiac. This placement is very disorienting, as Neptune is the Planet of Illusion. Neptune can create deception, in many forms, in everything from communication to science. Positively, the virtues of Neptune create a position that enables a greater feeling of connectedness to the Universe, and can strengthen the levels of empathy that people are able to feel with each other. This governs the subconscious and unconscious parts of the mind, but from this, it can create deepened understandings about personal spirituality, spiritual growth, but can also tear down institutions that are deeply personal to us, forcing us to change how we view the world and the Universe. This is why during Mercury in Aries, paying close attention to other view points and not subscribing to positions of hypocrisy will be incredibly important. Throughout the entirety of this cycle, disruption created by intentional confusion, delusion, and attributes that are in question will be themes at times, but Neptune has the capacity to heal these initiatives when in Pisces, allowing us to become strengthened in self-worth, knowing who we are, and loving who we will become.

PLUTO IN CAPRICORN (November 27th, 2008 – March 23rd, 2023: This is the longest cycle, Pluto’s transition period, because it is the Planet that is furthest away. This energy began on November 27, 2008 and will last until March 23, 2023. It will, very briefly, enter into Aquarius for a few months, and then will have one final stint within the Sign of Capricorn, from June 10, 2023 until January 20, 2024. It’s interesting to look at the attributes that this pairing of Planet and Zodiac sign have, knowing, in hindsight, how things have gone down thus far. And seeing how things are now, and then looking at the dates, knowing what’s coming… WHEW!! Capricorn rules the aspects of our lives that create stability, work, money and finances, etc. Pluto is the Planet of rebirth and transformation. As the ruling Planet of Scorpio, it certainly makes sense that it would take on similar characteristics, but Pluto in conjunction with Capricorn can be quite a ride. Power struggles are imminent during this time in politics, and other systems of control, such as religion, large corporations, etc. This can be good and bad, depending on which side of the struggle you’re on. Capricorn is able to take on a stance of order, diplomacy, and processes of due diligence don’t go unnoticed… unless Pluto says “no.”  It would seem to me that Pluto is gaining a stronger and stronger grip over Capricorn, but then as Capricorn sees that which is unjust, defiant to its nature, it fights back. Because of the balance that these two characters bring to the table, the transforming impact on society is going to be quite profound. “May you live in interesting times,” Ancient Chinese Curse.

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday, the third (second full) Mercury retrograde of the year began. For some, this energy greatly affects everything from travel and finances, communication which leads to misunderstandings, or even effects work, finances, and contractual obligations. For others, this has no effect, other than vicariously through other individuals that are more prone to the hindrances, interference, and frustrations that can arise. Staying calm, not making rash decisions, and utilizing patience are imperative positions to utilize, as this will help to cut back on frustration, but Mercury in retrograde isn’t all bad. During the retrograde, it is a wonderful time for reflection and introspection, as sometimes placing things on hold for the three weeks and three days that this cycle manifests can help to create a stronger jumping off point, once the cycle has completed. Currently, Mercury is in Virgo, which is able to create focus when it comes to finances, and can help to stabilize career and work focuses, helping to stabilize life (as money doesn’t buy happiness, but it sure can reduce stress, if properly managed).

I am here for you if you need anything at all, during this time. Don’t forget, if you see me offline, you can always send me a message if you need to chat or you can arrange a call with him, in which case I will take the call as soon as I get back. Life still happens whether there is a Mercury retrograde or not, but if you need help in making decisions, understanding how to improve communication, or how to enable the unfolding of the proper manifestations for any and all aspects of your life, I am here for you.

Warmest Wishes,

Draven Grey :)

YOUR TAROT READER

When you have a reading with me, I not only want it to be an experience for you, but I also want you to be able to get the most out of it that you possibly can. I always do my best readings when there is plenty of time to cover, in full detail, the aspects of the past, present, and future of the situation that you are questioning, but I also understand that there are circumstances which can prevent this from happening, such as the amount of money that you have available to you, or the amount of time that YOU have. That being said, if you choose to add only one minute at a time, we can absolutely work with that, but it won't be as informative, complete, or even precise as being able to spend 10-20 minutes with me per topic that you are questioning.

To accommodate time spent, it is always helpful if you have already typed out your questions, so that you can copy and paste the information, giving me time to read, without you have to spend precious time actually typing into the chat. A lot of readers don't prefer this, but with me, so long as you are being reasonable in giving me the time that it takes to read and respond, this is very helpful. I am faster at reading than typing, of course, but I do type up to 90 WPM, to help to provide you with the most information as possible.

I see all sorts of people, calm, frantic, anxious, scared, and even excited. I can connect to all energy levels, so you do not have to worry about what I will think of you, or how I will respond, based on how you are presenting yourself to me. You be YOU! That is the best thing that you can do when we have a reading. If we talk on the phone, I do tend to talk fast, so that I can give you as much information as possible, but if you need me to slow down, tell me so, and I Will be more than happy to. When plenty of time is allowed for in a chat, I can type for between 2 and 3 minutes, which can give you up to 270 words to read, while I type the next paragraph. This is where you already having your followup questions can be helpful, but I also try to take into account, based on what I feel and based on what the cards say, what you might ask, based on what I have told you. But you being able to have your information already typed, so that you can copy and paste absolutely saves time.

I am very patient and calm, and I absolutely do not judge and I will never demean or belittle you for anything that you might say, even if you come back by at a later point to tell me that you didn't follow my advice. We can always get things back on track, of course, unless irreparable damage has been done, but that is a very, very rare occasion. If I see that a situation won't work out in the way that you want, I will be honest with you, and will tell you so. I don't want a situation where you find yourself wasting your time on trying to bring forward love, a career, or any other aspect of your life which can be wrought with futility. But I will always tell you what I see, and I will be honest with you about what different choices you have to bring yourself forward. My goal is to guide and heal, through the most difficult of situations.

In any reading that we have, my top priority is not watching the clock, but rather is YOU and what I can do to lead you in a forward way, to bring about positive and uplifting change. I also strive to give you the tools that you need to understand how you have arrived at the position that you are in, to hep to avoid this in the future, which is also conveyed in the deepest messages of my readings. For those of you that feel hope is lost, bringing you to a point of being able to see your situation, perhaps in a way that you haven't looked at it, is often able to rectify the nature of your path that has brought about the hardships and challenges that you have faced. My purpose on here is to help YOU, and to show you the ways that you are able to bring yourself the position of happiness, tranquility, and peace that you are seeking, in all matters for life and love. I welcome debate, if you think that what I am telling you sounds difficult, or even if you feel that taking a specific action that shows in our reading doesn't sound as though it will help. I assure you, I will never lead you to a position that will cause you to bring detriment, if the steps that I provide are followed, of course, unless the cards and my own psychic abilities are showing that they are irreparable, in which case, I will tell you.

For those of you that I have never talked to, chatted with, or done an email reading for, I am excited to meet you, to have the opportunity to guide you through your situation. And for those of you that I have talked to once or a hundred times, I am always excited to hear from you, even if you come back with difficult news. We will always work together to bring about the positive changes that you need, to ensure that your path gains the stability that you need, and the peace that you are seeking, as well.

I hope to hear from you, very soon!

Best Wishes,

Draven

Scorpio has just begun, which is a perfect time to examine the emotional pull that we are experiencing for all areas of our lives, especially love. Scorpio, through its stronger emphasis on the emotions that we feel, gives us the ability to seek out the transformations that we are seeking, not just in the world around us, but in ourselves. As we look at the factors in our lives, to understand the direction that we wish to take, this is able to give the ability to embrace the changes that we can bring forward.

Scorpio, in astrology, sends us the tools that we need to enact real change, and allows us to overcome the fears associated with change. This is incumbent on each of us, individually, to enact this trajectory, but the acceptance of change can be found far easier during Scorpio, than other cycles of the Zodiac. This is done by seeing the best and worst in ourselves, seeing the path that we are able to choose, to bring us to our desired goals. Stagnation is comfortable and not changing is safe, but in a world where everything we desire is outside of our comfort zone, it is easy to lose sight of the trajectory that we wish to obtain by staying in the safe zone that we have created for ourselves.

Scorpio, in Tarot, is defined by the Death card, and for good reason. This shows the ability that we have to use the receptivity of Scorpio, to define the nature of transformation that we seek. The Death Card is not literal to death, but rather, shows the initiative that is able to be formed, through making said changes, which is able to bring us closer to the desires that we seek.

To answer this question, one must first understand the nature of spirituality, and that the consciousness of spirituality doesn't allow for it to be felt the same way, by any two people. The universe as we know it is perceived by us through our experiences, and as we have have these experiences, grow as individuals, and learn from our mistakes, the universe around us changes. The same applies for spiritual experiences, for as we experience this, our view on everything about life changes. You may have heard someone say before "I'm not really religious, but I am more of a spiritual person..." Often times, the person saying it finds difficulty in knowing the meaning to this, but many times what they are meaning to say is that they do believe in the existence of God or a higher being, they don't practice religion, and that they have had a different walk down spirituality, which can often times be very difficult to explain.

For the most part, I have found my spirituality through music, and not in the way that you might think. Though I am relevantly young, I don't listen to the mainstream radio, but I do listen to dark psychedelic trance, which is very big in other countries. This music was invented by a shaman from Goa, India named "Goa Gil."Goa Trance was its original name, before it took on the name of psychedelic trance. Dark psychedelic trance is able to become prevalent in your chakras, as it allows one to feel the music, and bring your brain waves to a vibrant frequency. The music works on a level that strikes up the Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta brainwaves, simultaneously, and inspires logic and creativity to form in unison. There is a whole spiritual subculture that comes with this music, which I have had the privilege to be around, and have learned an immense deal of the connectedness of the universe, and everything in it, from the wonderful people who create and produce this music.

There are also mono and binaural beats, which are able to produce certain calming effects, by listening to the music in headphones. These noises and sounds are produced with one ear being slightly quieter than the other, and produces a calming effect, upon listening for only a few minutes. There is an equation in physics that accounts for all sound, which runs up a scale of A,B,C,D,E,F, and G. Every note can carry octaves, which the equation accounts for the threshold an object is able to carry this note, like the tinking of a glass. Music takes on creative energy that can often be felt in a spiritual way, which puts order to various sounds, and noises, that allow for the brain to hear a finely tuned input of energy, whether it be Beethoven, Mozart, or anything else that follows music theory.

My experience with music has given me the key to unlocking a side to existence that I didn't even know existed, until it found me. And that is where MY spirituality was able to be realized, better for myself. Some are blessed with the experience to prove God through near death experience, or other such phenomena, where others live their entire lives questioning, sometimes in soured grief, not ever able to come up with the answers that they seek. But from someone who has spent their entire life seeking out spirituality, I have found music to truly be my best source for part of the key that I needed, to figuring out the passage of the universe before this life, and into the next.

If you want to know the answers, all one must do is seek them out. It may take hours, and it may take years, but if there is a longing to find a more spiritual side to yourself, you will be able to discover this. Especially if you don't get frustrated on your quest to discovering this. We are put on this planet to experience, grow, and learn, taking our reward from the Universe for doing this in the form of happiness and pleasure. And in doing this, we are able to shape our destines, and always unwittingly, the destinies of those around us. For me, a Spiritual Reading is where if you are feeling lost in your spirituality, you would be able to use a spiritual advisor to find the right path for yourself to be able to find the best way to experience this.

Below, you will find my Group for Spiritual Advisors, if you need help finding your path, and I would encourage you to choose from any of these talented advisors to help you find your path

I know that we are all sick of hearing about this silly retrograde now, as it is going to be continuing for the next 19 days. But don't forget to look up, and don't just notice, but stare in wonder at what lies beyond our atmosphere, and when gazing upon the twinkling lights of the night sky, see the infinite nature of the Universe. Tomorrow morning, a continuation of the tetrad Blood Moon Eclipses will occur, allowing for the second eclipse to darken the night sky, at 6:25 AM EDT, and will last until 7:24 AM EDT. Note that it takes 59 minutes to complete this cycle, as this is something that is able to make the cogs in the clock of the Universe easier to understand, that we are all at the mercy of astrological influences, based on the placement of the planets, the Sun, and the Moon. From the time we are born, this is able to guide us through our entire lives, and so as you are observing the Moon in its change into red, remember that this change is able to bring about stability, but this tetrad is the inspiration of shared consciousness, throughout the entire Globe. Dec. 21, 2012 notwithstanding, the four blood moons (two this year, and two next year) inspire a chance for thought to be shared, in a very telepathic way. No, I am not saying that people are going to be hearing voices in their heads, but it is indicating that the changes which are occurring now are able to bring people to a resolve of understanding that things are changing in such a way that people are able to see that what they once thought may not necessarily be the rule of thought that they want to live by, and this is happening globally.

As of October 4th, Mercury went retrograde, where it will remain until the 26th of October. Mercury going retrograde can  have a very negative connotation, as there are problems with person to person communication which can easily lead to misunderstandings and disagreements which can affect everything from your relationship to your job, there are commonly issues with travel such as flight delays, or even technological breakdowns, which can affect computers, cell phones, and other electronic equipment. But the Mercury retrograde doesn't necessarily have to be brought forward with bad vibes, for though this time can be problematic for many, it is important to note that there are ways of dealing with the difficulty that this astrological event can provide, allowing for more positive energy to flow forward.

Through the difficulty that will be felt during this time, it is important to note that from now until October 26th, is going to be a good time to gain ground in your intuition, and to really strive to focus on self-reflection. For those of you who are familiar with Astrology, Tarot, and the Zodiac, it is no secret. Where you may be struggling with communication with another individual, you would be able to recognize that throughout this period of time, you would be able to actually gain understanding of how others communicate, aside from your own ability being hindered. This is important, because it opens the door for understanding, and even empathy, as it gives the opportunity to be able to put yourself in someone else's shoes. In this case, it would be by understanding everything from facial expressions, mannerisms, stuttered words, all the way to domineering personalities, and insatiable forms of communication, which can cause a feeling of pushiness, or unease. However, despite being able to see someone else's way, method, or means of communication clearer, there are plenty of other things that will be  able to be reflected upon.

It is important to understand that during Mercury in Retrograde, final conclusions will not want to be drawn, as this is not the the time. But it is a time to see multiple sides of many different situations. This is particularly good for individuals who find difficulty seeing any fault whatsoever in their actions, because IF one allows themselves the opportunity to be able to find empathy and understanding, it is able to come out of the retrograde with a much more positive resolution.

One of the most common elements of the passion of mankind isn't just the question how we got here, or where we come from, or how are we all connected? But they are these questions which lead to more questions. What are we connected to? Is it God or some other all-powerful being? Are we alone? But for many the scariest question ends up being "Where will I go when I die?" The truth is, no one knows for sure. Even those who would consider themselves religious will find moments of doubt, fearing for the worst.


The great concept of good and evil comes into question in many religions, all the way back to Hinduism, which is the oldest written religion, with Shiva, the destroyer, holding no reverence for any standing in the way, or the duality of God vs. Satan, a fallen angel himself, playing out until the apocalypse of the book of Revelation written by John, who was imprisoned in solitude on a deserted island serving a prison for the last 25 years of his life, before he wrote it.

For Centuries, and perhaps more, mankind has searched for truth for Spirituality, creating moral codes and ethical order along the way, where without the quest for Spirituality, the ten commandments wouldn't have been conceived, which despite what religion you serve, most of them serve as pretty nice rules to live one's life by. But what do all of these things have in common? Each religion, which holds standards to ancient texts and provides teachings that have been passed down from generation to generation operate with a guise of fear, stating their claim to the one true God.

I have studied many religions, and have found wonderful meaning in many of them, but have often found myself lost in the concept of FOREVER and NOTHING. To me, the word destroy implies no longer in existence, without consciousness, and without a soul. This had always bothered my, for many years, until I discovered through my science classes that the neurochemistry that makes up each of our brains have certain receptors that create the experiences that we have when we dream, from a the pineal gland, which is positioned directly in the center of each of our brains, which produces a chemical called dimethyltryptamine. This substance (DMT) has a great power that is not understood by science, as it is completely illegal to research in the U.S., but is gaining ground in other parts of the world, where study is able to be implemented.

Back in 1992, in Arizona, Dr. Rick Strassman conducted the first series of tests ever done on this substance, under the authority of the DEA and the United States Government, where he was able to use volunteers to give them small amount of DMT, which BTW is found in 90% of all living organisms, intravenously. The volunteer would have their respective "experience" where it allowed them to face a reality not of this world that appeared directly in the center of their mind, taking control not just of the thoughts they were having, but the actual time and place that they were in deep within the universe.

Since then, Dr. Strassman has written a book called DMT: The Spirit Molecule, which while in college, I had the great privilege of being able to research in one form of this phenomena, or another, without actually having to reproduce it as an illegal substance. I was able to test psychedelic music (specifically called dark psychedelic trance) on plants that contained high percentages of DMT, to discover that the plants that were played the music between 155 beats per min (BPM) through 205 BPM's grew twice as fast as the plants that experienced music, and up to a third of the time faster than plants which listened to upbeat classical music.

This has further tests to be done, but preliminarily, it did appear as though the psychedelic intent of the music was able to pull more stimulated growth from the plant itself, allowing it to manifest more beauty, as well as higher concentrations of the DMT contained within. At no time was this ever extracted, but was kept in its plant matter form when it endured all testing, and in no way would any tests be able to be conclusive, unless there were permissible cause to allow such a test to occur.

So why is this important? One, way back thousands of years ago in South America, deep within the jungles of Brazil and Peru, where no man had ever been, other than the indigenous people of the Amazon, they were able to extract DMT from the ayahuasca plant, allowing them to extend the regular DMT experience (which they already knew about) from lasting 15 minutes from start to finish to up to 8 hours with ayahuasca (which BTW, means vine of the soul). Their experiences have been well documented since the early 1900s, and their people have been open with sharing the knowledge that they themselves have gained from their vivacious vine. The importance is that their spirituality is felt in a way that cannot be felt with any other method which isn't a psychedelic. This is because of the formation that it makes with the pineal gland, allowing the opportunity to connect deep within yourself to be able to understand intuitively the true nature of God, the Universe, and Self, and realizing that it is all one in the same. It holds no accountability for sin, despair, death, anxiety, or even life itself, other than to show its magnificence, with an omnipresent ability to break down the ego of any person who should try to test its limits. Many who have experienced it claim a spiritual experience, unlike any mediation, or any prayer, or any other form of so called spirituality can prescribe, as many who have come out of it have been astounded by the fact that such a phenomenon can exist. And this sacred plant is being killed off in the Amazon, dying due to the destruction of mankind.

Secondly, many of you who read this would probably consider this a drug just on first glance, paying no credence to the importance of its role in microbiology or neurochemistry. But that's okay. To each his own right? Though I do not condone the use of illegal substances, I do totally agree with the notion that they must be studied, to be able to gain a better understanding of why we have these receptors in our brains in the first place. But then it was made clear to me in Strassman's book, the first gland which develops in a fetus is the pineal gland, which forms the same day that one can tell the sex of a baby. It then pumps your brain full of DMT each night while you sleep, but pairs it with melatonin, which makes it seem like dreams, instead of a waking state of being somewhere off in outer space. But when you die, when I die, when we all die, it is the last chemical reaction that takes place in the brain, filling your brain with the final dose, which allows the light of the soul to exit the body, and instantly transform to where you go after life. Now, of course, this is only a theory, but it does suggest that no man is bound by any spiritual law that states if he believes this way then he will go here, or if she doesn't believe in this, she will go there... It doesn't work that way, as all of life is biological, and has no prejudice for where life ends up. We choose this before we come here, knowing that we must arrive, and give ourselves the experience, so that we can go back after we are done, before it is time to do it all over again in another time and place.

Spirituality is the understanding of who you are and where you will go, paying respect for all creation, all creatures, and all of humankind, while realizing and understanding that we are not actually at the center of the universe, and that forever is not an eternity in a lake of fire, or in a beautiful city with golden gates, and a mansion all to yourself. To be alive is to experience and to love, and to grow our consciousness. The first law of thermodynamics states that neither matter, nor energy can be created or destroyed. It can only be changed from one form to another. It is all based off of perpetual motion, which itself is impossible to create. The U.S. patent office won't even entertain the idea of perpetual motion, because to create it would be to create life itself, starting with a universe.

Embrace new ideas which at times might be shockingly thought provoking, as it may lead to new discoveries in new areas that would be able to help mankind. There is a reason that the shamans of the jungle prescribe these as medications, which heal anxieties, depression, heroine, cocaine, and methamphetamine addictions, but they mostly prescribe it for spiritual distress. This is where the person partaking has fear that there is nothing more after life, and doesn't have a profound belief in anything, only to find that with the help of a simple tea made from a vine, the answers reside within our mind, and have since the beginning of mankind.

It is not a crime to want to know where we come from, and the Universe has proven to those who have tried these substances that it is okay to look, but know that you may also be afraid of what you find. But then there is the strong possible chance that you will see a new realm of discovery for yourself that is described in no religion, but yet these psychedelics have been practiced by the ancients, and have still pursued this cause in a modern world, reminding them of where they truly came from.

Namaste!

Draven Grey

Hi everyone, and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Although I have several postings on here, most relating to my groups, as well as to other astronomical and astrological events that have occurred, with this particular post, I want to take a moment to reintroduce myself. As rates have had to increase, and as featured listing costs have soared, I wanted to post a brief article, not only to reintroduce myself, but to give you, my potential clients, an understanding for what a reading with me is like. I have been reading on Keen, off and on, since 2004, but have consistently provided high quality readings on Keen since December 2014, and plan on continuing to do so for a long time to come. Not only have I made remarkable connections on here with my clients, but I have a strong passion for what I do, helping others, just like you, to achieve your dreams, wishes, and desires, by showing you what is heading your way. I have spent much of my life, with great pride, striving to be a solid rock and foundation for how you can find the support that you need for navigating what can sometimes be treacherous waters, in life.

Although I am psychic, I always start with Tarot (unless you request otherwise), as it is derived from the language of the Tarot that I construct my readings, simplifying my interpretation by giving you the outline for how you will be able to see the particular events that are heading your way unfolding. This is also the means by which I construct timing, using the Zodiac referenced in each card, looking at how this will be able to play out for you, in all areas of your life. Timelines and predictions are given on MOST chats and calls, depending, of course, on what we talk about. But I always apply a heavy emphasis on the future, in addition to your present and past. Timelines are given from the tarot, astrology, as well as from my own psychic connection to you, with honesty and integrity.

If you decide to have a reading with me, you never have to feel compelled to tell me your name or DOB, although this is helpful for us to further develop a connection and names also help with the flow of the conversation that we are able to have. I conduct reach reading using IF/THEN scenarios, as they show in the cards, to give you a better idea of how to take action, how to be receptive, or how to communicate. I do also pride myself on my accuracy, and will also show you how best to proceed on your journey. If you are a repeat customer, and you have found yourself being unable to follow my advice, which digs a deeper hole for you, please don't fret. We will always look at how you are able to get yourself back on the track that you need, and you will never be reprimanded by me, for any reason, whatsoever. I also welcome you to challenge me, or to ask questions, if you think that what I am telling you seems, well, unorthodox. I ALWAYS welcome healthy and substantial debate, as this is also able to give us the opportunity to get to know each other, and to form an even stronger understanding for where you and I are both at with your situation. You understanding where I am coming from by understanding the cards that are showing up, is also a very positive way for you to gain more insight into your situation. I will never judge you, for anything, and I welcome diversity, of all kinds. There is no issue, from any person, from any country, from any continent, that I can't handle (except, of course, all issues explicitly stated by Keen that we are unable to work on, such as lottery numbers, medical advice, etc.), and I promise that I will always provide you with a safe environment for us to have our reading together.

Over the years, I have had to raise my prices, but I have made a promise to all of my current clients that I will have no rate increases until I reassess the situation at the beginning of 2018, but I do not foresee actually raising my rates for at least 2-3 years from $7.99/minute. This is, of course, for phone readings (which I do take arranged calls), and for chat readings. You can always rely on my to type up to 90 words per minute, which will not only be giving you brand new information each time we talk, but this will also ensure that you are being given the best value for your reading. I also promise that each conversation that we have, the utmost attention to detail, accuracy, and focus will be my top priority. If you would like to know a little bit more about my readings, who I am, and what you can expect from me, feel free to checkout my listings on Keen.

I GREATLY appreciate you taking the time to read this, and I look forward to writing more articles in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead, which will not only pertain to me, but will be written with YOU in mind. This will be in an effort to provide my own insights on spirituality, tarot, astrology, what it means to be psychic, and how you are able to bring about your road towards happiness that is awaiting you. Always feel free to message me if you have any questions, whatsoever, and I look forward to chatting with you and meeting you, very soon!

Best Wishes,

Draven Grey
