Mix It Up Monday: Flying Catterpillar- Madonna's Child

Flying Catterpillar is the next guest writer for Mix It Up Mondays. If you would like to read more by Flying Catterpillar, She can be contacted via her blog

For a very brief spell I was courted by Lamar. He said "I hate books. I don't know when’s the last time I read a book." I should've known this one wasn't going far. He is handsome. He looks like he could be my brother…maybe he is. I don't know my mother in the physical form and every time I ask somebody about how she was when her mud looked like it was melting, they always give me the same spill about how dead people are so sweet. I know very little about my mother and the little that I do know is all good stuff.

Ma Sanchez always says “baby, yo motha was such a sweet heart and boy could she dress, she used to love shopping at that thrift store that used to be ova dere’ on Mulberry street, if Pat was anything she was different, she loved to be different.”

Pappy always says, “yeah ya moms didn't have many girlfriends, there was Cynthia and ummm what's that lady's name? she used to always hang with her but I forget her name, ask Ma Sanchez she should know the lady’s name; but yeah, ya moms was quiet I guess that’s where you get it from, she always kept to herself; now she was easygoing but, once you crossed her it was over that's that bull in her - she was a Taurus… she always had a book in her hand; she was silly, I remember I tried to teach her how to drive and she jus kept playin around, the sista can't drive i guess that’s where you get it from; oh, and she was always on the bus boooy, shoot I met her on the bus, she was standin' there lookin' all cute wit ya sista Frenchy... I memba for her birthday i surprised her and baked her a cake and she cried, that was touching...yeah you had a sister name Yasheekah and she died before you were born…when I was in a cast and I couldn't really get around too tough ya moms brought me a card and a minature toy car, the card said if i was rich i would buy you a mercedes.”

And my Aunt Tone always told me about how my moms used to work at Bamburgers, the old Macys downtown Newark and how mom took her to get her first real grown up bathing suit. That’s all I know about my motha…that’s all I know…

My mother is me. legs and all minus the bull tendency. I'm a Leo, we try to keep the peace but, if you crossed me I won't talk to you for a spell, then i'll begin to feel guilty and want you to smile and laugh with me again, so i'll hunt your attention with my charismatic leo ways - I never thought I was a typical Leo until I got mad with someone. yeah, so everything sounds jus like me, all the good stuff, but i want to know the juicy stuff. Lord knows I got me some secrets. Like I’m 23 and a virgin, Like I still feel guilty for playing show me yours and I’ll show you mines with my fake cousin Arty in the closet. Like I still feel guilty for letting the boys in the back of the class see my underwear in first grade. Like I want to get fucked something gentle. Like I eventually liked the way it felt when Uncle Manny touched me and kissed me. I want to know the good stuff. Stuff like could this young man that hates books really be my brother? Heavens, he may be my brother by both my mother and pappy. You know pappy got the baby in Virginia, Tangenika? She 17 and pappy ain't seen her since she was 1. You ask him why he ain't seen her and with a blank stare he replies "Sicely (that’s my half-sister Tangenika’s mother) done did me wrong Munch."

Lamar got them Chinese food and soy sauce lovin' eyes like me and pappy. And pappy's family is good with they hands. Uncle Ted was a drunk mechanic, Uncle Pete, Uncle Harold and cousin Dwight are all good with they hands. And Lamar is just a genius when it comes to computers. But Lamar’s not like pappy’s brothers, he's good with his hands but he's not like them. He’s reserved, it's in his bone structure, the way his cheek bones protrude across his face like the wood faces baba dawdou has hanging in his office at the community center. Uncle Ted and Pete resembled the masks a lil' bit but it was only by default. Their masks are no longer beautiful art from a distant land that could be displayed on a wall. They are more like replicas whose beauty gradually declined over the years.

Pappy refuses to debate with me. He thinks that age makes him wise. His old adage of children should be seen and not heard really fucked me up. I came here with gifts to share, but he don’t get it. He refuses to see my ma’s blood seeping out of my pen, he refuses to listen to my silence. He don’t get it…that blood clot in my ma’s brain exploded and leaked into the left tit that I was suckling on. Milk ain’t taste the same sense.

Pappy was young once. Really young. He used to wear an afro in the 70's to get girls but he wasn't down for the revolution. He took a job with the IRS. He always says thanks to affirmative action I got this job, yeah they were lookin' to diversify the IRS, so they came and got us brothers that sold insurance. Some of us didn't even have college degrees, but look at us some 15 years later and a lot of us are damn near close to making six figures a year. Every time I see pappy he's broke with a new gadget; big screen TV, that vacuum cleaner thing and that crunch contraption that's supposed to find new compartments for all that backed up fecal matter in his mid section. I don't find pappy mentally or spiritually attractive. He's handsome though, very handsome, like he got some history in him, like his grandfather lived all this new age shit. He got a soft heart, he cries at the drop of a dime. But that connection ain't there like it was in the life before. How can connections regress? Maybe I was a whore when I was mommy. I mean I went from the extremes of having a baby by Tommy, Frenchy’s father, the psychedelic pimp also known as Marlo the Latin lover of the seventies to having a baby by some linear, soft hearted skinny man that looked like his great grandma was snapped in National geographic with a wire tube hanging from her ear lobe to her top lip...No, I couldn't have been a whore. I look too young to have been a whore. I was good cuz I don't look a day over 16. Brother Dawdou, the director of Umoja community center on 11th street told me that if you look young in this life, then that means that you were good in your past life. So got damn it me and mommy wasn't no whore, maybe we were saints...but they fucked up too...ahhh, herbologist, like Monty from 14th and Mandala...helping lost souls get on Bobby Hemmitt's level all for a minimal fee. Maybe Pappy was a really good customer and he was nice to look at and he was just there, stuff happens sometimes, life gets lonely, even when the world says you're beautiful.

Needless to say Lamar stopped calling. I think it's because of mommy's picture that hangs on the wall in my room. The big one, the one that pappy says you went to New York and took especially for him. Lamar remembers the you that I used to be. When we were together he always would stare at that picture of you and ask me about you - the old me. I tried to answer all of his questions but I don't know much. I’m off balance. The last time that we were together, he looked up at your picture and he said that you are beautiful, mysteriously beautiful. He said "that half smirk and half smile makes her look like she's holding a secret." I was touched by his observant sensitivity, so I leaned into kiss him and he gently pushed me away...he looked disgusted and confused. We haven't spoke since...

Mix It Up Monday: Djehuty Ma'at Ra- Scorpio Health

This weeks Mix It Up Monday post is about Scorpio health by Djehuty Ma'at Ra  If you would like to purchase herbal products or read up on great information, you can find more information on his  websiteTwitter, or Facebook

Scorpio Health

Scorpio - the Scorpion, is the 8th sign of the Western Zodiac. This sign happens to be my Ascendant or Rising sign making myself a Taurus with a Scorpio Rising.

Souls who incarnate between October 23rd and November 21st (some charts state November 22) are born under the constellation Scorpio.

Scorpio is a Water sign. In the language of astrology, this means Scorpions are people who are silent, mysterious types whose magic hypnotizes even the most determined realist. They have uncanny perceptions about people and as rich as the oceans when it comes to feeling, emotion, or imagination. These creatures are very sensitive, mystical creatures with memories that go back beyond time. They are emotional and intuitive.

Like their zodiacal and elemental brethren, Cancer and Pisces, Scorpions have the potential for the depths of darkness or the heights of mysticism and art.

Also like their zodiacal and elemental brethren, Scorpions are very emotional creatures. Emphasis on emotions is being stressed here to drive this point home. So if get with a Water sign, a Scorpio specifically, just know this in advance. And I'm not inferring it's a bad thing either. Not at all!

This sign (or people born under this sign) help finish projects started by others and are also very supportive and passive creatures. They have a very strong desire and inclination to please. Like other Water signs, they live through their emotions, imaginations, and intuitions.

Scorpio's astrological statement is "I desire!" This can cause Scorpions to be very materialistic creatures, especially if they don't get in tune with their spiritual side of existence.

In tune with their spiritual side, they are very balanced creatures; however, it is important for this sign to not cling to one extreme of the pole, being very spiritual to the detriment of their material side and nature, or being very material and to the detriment of their spiritual side. Balance is key here!

Traditionally pure Scorpions are said to have characters of a violent and irrational nature, are intense, powerful, and have magnetic attraction. They are generally dignified, reserved in conversation, easily hurt, quick to detect insult and easily moved by emotions.

Keywords that describe this sign are: Sensitivity, Transformation, Mastery (especially self-mastery), Suspicious, Covert, Trauma, Self-destruction, Vindictive, Magnetism, Power, Sexuality, and Controlling.

Scorpio is traditionally the most sexual and most intense sign of the Zodiac. Befittingly, Scorpio rules the sex glands.

Scorpio corresponds to the astrological Eighth House, which deals with Regeneration, Death or Mortality, Inheritance, Taxes, Sex, and Metaphysics.

Scorpions do well in occupations dealing with health and healing (regeneration), death (morticians, undertakers, embalmers, etc.), inheritance (probate law), sex (sex therapist, sex instructor, sex educator, adult film star, etc.), and taxes (tax preparer, tax consultant, or even tax protestor after they become familiar with the goals and ideals of the American Tax Honesty Movement which boldly claim taxes on a person's income is unconstitutional).

Quadruplicity-wise, Scorpios are "Fixed." They share this trait with Taurus, its astrological opposite, Leo, and Aquarius.

Scorpio's polarity is "Feminine." Feminine in astrological language means withdrawn, passive, and receptive in nature. These people are introverts whereas the Masculine signs are extroverts.

Other "Feminine" signs include: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces.

Oxymoronically, Scorpio's ideal sign for marriage compatibility is Taurus, its astrological opposite. The reason why astrological opposites or polarities make the best soul mates or marriage partners (despite otherwise being an incompatible sign) is due to the fact that there are so many challenges when opposites signs connect, but when these challenges are overcome (as they are in time), you have two very balanced individuals. The opposite of conflict is harmony so polar signs arrive at harmony in the end and experience a very balanced relationship. I witnessed this myself with my parents, an Aries-Libra combination. Moms was an Aries and pops was a Libra. There were so many challenges in this relationship but it would later become balanced in the end.

Opposites signs help you to deal with your shadow side (or self) which manifests your negative traits. Your polar sign exposes you to hidden traits within yourself and help you to balance yourself, trait-wise. Your astrological opposite is your mirror upon which you can reflect upon.

Since your astrological opposite and hidden and negative self is Taurus, who better than a Taurus to help you overcome your shadow self and shadow traits? In the long run, Taurus is going to help balance Scorpio and vice versa, just as Aries is going to help balance Libra and as Virgo is going to help balance Pisces and so on.

Also, your astrological opposite is always in the element ranking immediately next to your own. Earth is closest to Water more so than it is to Air or Fire, so Earth signs are going to be more compatible with Water signs than Air and Fire signs as Air and Fire are further (farther, being technical with language here) away from Water.

After Earth signs, Water signs would be more compatible with Air signs and lastly, Fire signs.
We all are impacted by all the signs of the Zodiac and some of us who may not have a Scorpio Sun may have a Scorpio ascendant (such as myself) or a Scorpio moon.

In addition, you may have a few planets in Scorpio in your natal chart. All of the planets, signs, and houses represent archetypes that describe the Soul's consciousness because the Zodiac is nothing but a map of the Soul's journey through consciousness for purposes of Soul evolution.

In medical astrology, Scorpio governs the following bodily organs: genitals, reproductive organs, bladder, urethra, and rectum. There is a tendency with this sign to genital afflictions, venereal disease, rectal polyps, as well as sinus and adenoid trouble.

Scorpions are prone to the following diseases and disorders:
Sexually transmitted diseases
Uterine tract infections
Menstrual problems
Anal fissures
Crone's disease
Bladder infection
Uterine complaints (fibroid tumors)
Profuse sweating
Nasal catarrh
Pelvic inflammatory diseases
Intense body odor
Poisoned blood
Candida (yeast infection)

Because Scorpio is the polarity of Taurus, Scorpions can pick up health complaints commonly experienced by Taurus such as neck and throat problems and because Scorpio is also very prone to sinus and adenoid problems, Taurus in the chart during a time of sickness could enhance any troubles with the sinuses and adenoids.

Pluto, co-ruler of Scorpio along with Mars, rules regenerative cell growth as well as the revitalization of the mental faculties. The Chi force in this sign can overcome even the most serious and life threatening of illnesses.
As all 12 Zodiac signs have been assigned a cell salt that helps maintain the health of the particular sign and which the sign requires more of than any other sign or person, Scorpio too has a cell salt: Calcium Sulphate compounds that can assist the Scorpio in healing and maintaining optimal health and well-being include: Scorpio FormulaVenereal BusterCandida BusterYoni FormulaProstate FormulaBowel MoverSen-Fen FormulaColon FormulaParasite FormulaBlood & Lymphatic FormulaDetox TeaMoon Cycle Tea, and Sinus Formula.

Famous Sun sign Scorpions include:
Bill Gates, Ruby Dee, Larry King, Julia Roberts, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Lisa Bonet, Meg Ryan, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ethan Hawke, Jodie Foster, Ike Turner, Whoopi Goldberg, Joaquin Phoenix, Sally Field, Goldie Hawn, Kevin Kline, Grace Kelly, Matthew McConaughey, Bo Derek, Dylan McDermott, Demi Moore, John Cleese, Martin Scorsese, Linda Evans, Danny Devito, Ann Reinking, Jonathan Winters, Richard Dreyfus, Lauren Hutton, Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Q-Tip, Mariel Hemmingway, Art Carney, Jane Alexander, Mike Nichols, Brian Keith, Elke Sommer, Dennis Miller, Bibi Anderson, Sam Waterson, Richard Burton, Hilary Clinton, F. Murray Abraham, Maria Shriver, Charles Bronson, Kate Capshaw, Michael Landon, Tatum O'Neal, Harry Hamlin, Rickie Lee Jones, Henry Winkler, Bonnie Raitt, KD Lang, Roy Schieder, Neil Young, Lyle Lovett, Ruth Gordon, Nadia Comaneci, Ed Asner, Brenda Vacarro, Sir Francis Bacon, Pablo Picasso, Helen ReddySam Shepherd, Lee Strasberg, Marla Maples, Prince Charles, Art Garfunkel, Ted Turner, Voltair, and Jason Christopher (a/k/a Godson).

Mix It Up Monday: Sutekh- Married to Mr. or Mrs. Wrong?

This week's Mix Up Monday article is by Sutekh from Astrochologist. If you would like to connect with Sutekh,  you can find him on his websiteTwitter, and Facebook

Married to Mr. or Mrs. Wrong?

So I was talking to an acquaintance of mine who is a few years older, married, two kids. He tells me how he has a Facebook page that his wife set up. He’s a late degree Gemini so being mercury ruled he really talks someones ears off and in the same vein, IM and chat someones fingers to the bone. He’s frustrated because his wife keeps a close eye on him. He’s always telling me, ” man, I can’t use any of that electronic stuff, she’s super jealous, even though it’s just chit chat she goes bananas”. Well his wife just so happens to be a late degree Pisces. Both of their sun signs are at a tight square.
Now looking further into their astrology he (I’ll call him Shawn) doesn’t have much to signify an attraction or affinity with a Pisces sun woman. However, in her chart, her moon tightly conjuncts his sun, and their venus’ trine each other resulting in a rather strong love bond overall. Their mars planets are sextile also, so at least on a passion and sexual level they get on great. It’s when we get to the deeper sun and moon dynamic is where things start to get a little murky. Their moons are in opposition meaning that their schedules are probably opposite of each other, for example, she works at day and he works at night.Her sun squares his sun and moon.
Shawn also admitted to me that he runs around on his wife, but he admits she is a great wife and mother, she is very supportive and a true keeper of the home. I just believe the Pisces sun placement may throw a big monkey wrench into their whole situation and may be part of the force that would drive him to look elsewhere. Gemini doesn’t want a clingy emotional Pisces to deal with that’s too hard to understand and irritating to deal with as an air sign. Asking him not to chat goes against everything in him as a mercury sign.
They still have this potent sexual energy and strong emotional affinity(mutual harmonious moon-venus aspects). My overall point being, there are no real home runs, and if you do happen to find a Mr. wrong or Mr. right you are in an elite club. There are simply too many intricacies for everything to unfold like a Disney fairy tale. Shawn has some real issues with who his wife is (sun square sun), but there are many elements he appreciates about her, and her of him that they are still bound together.

Mix It Up Monday: Sutekh- 3 Indicators for Finding your Proper Career Path using Astrology

This week's Mix Up Monday article is by Sutekh from Astrochologist. If you would like to connect with Sutekh,  you can find him on his website, Twitter, and Facebook

3 Indicators for Finding your Proper Career Path using Astrology

Utilizing astrology to this end is something I believe people are really missing out on. Many people will look at the various daily horoscope sites looking at career horoscopes while sitting at their desk job waiting for that lunch break. All the while they are completely oblivious to the idea that delving deeper into astrology could actually point them in a new direction . It can provide the insight and guidance to leave that miserable and totally unsatisfying situation in the dust!

1. Midheaven (MC) and aspects to it.

Your Medium Coeli is representative of your career path and path to glory so to speak. Someone with Leo on the MC will be a leader or spearhead a brand new endeavor for example. Aspects to the MC will either help assist you or throw a few roadblocks in the way.
Example of a positive aspect to MC:Moon trine MC. Strong inner yearning to accomplish a career goal and accomplishing this will be emotionally fulfilling.
Negative aspect: Pluto Square Midheaven. Struggles for power with authority figures. Disdain for managers,bosses etc. Which will make it difficult for someone to climb the corporate ladder if that is in fact part of your goal.
2Second house cusp ruler and planets.

The 2nd house represents personal values and material possessions. What you value and what you want out of a career go together like peanut butter and jelly. Naturally if you want material security (Taurus as the cusp ruler, or venus in the 2nd) you will want a career that will provide you with everything money can buy. How will you get there? Well , if you have Mars in the 2nd house you will not hesitate to put in the work necessary. If Uranus is in the 2nd, you will want a career or way of making an income that allows for a high degree of personal freedom. Traveling merchant/salesmen, or maybe freelance writer.

3. True node sign,house placement, and aspects.
Your true node is what lessons we have to learn in this incarnation that will fulfill our karmic destiny. So for example if your north node falls on your MC you are one of the lucky ones because your career path will be mightily important in your life. If the true node positively aspects your MC it will have a similar effect. What house your true node falls in may or may not be telling in terms of career path. If it is in a work oriented house (6th) or career (10th) than it will have more of an impact than if placed in the 4th house which is the house of home and family.
Thanks for reading.

Mix It Up Monday: Jesus M. Maldonado- The Symptoms of "Mental Constipation"

This week's Mix It Up Monday post is an article by Jesus M. Maldonado. If you would like to connect with Jesus, you can reach him via email(, on his blog or on Twitter

The Symptoms Of "Mental Constipation"; The Causes, The Effects, And The Healing Process

This article will be about the symptoms of "Mental Constipation". I will express my thoughts on what Mental Constipation means to me and how it may cause certain things to effect your life. I will also give you a brief view of how you may heal from this "Mental Constipation" and block it out completely from your life.
     One morning I decided I was going to study everyone I came into conversation with. I told myself that every time I talk to somebody today, I will bring entrepreneurship into the conversation and speculate what others thought about it. It was pretty interesting to hear many different opinions on the subject. One thing that hit me though, was that almost everyone I talked to seemed confused. It seemed like everyone that I had talked to felt like they had so much to say about entrepreneurship but they just couldn't get it out. They were Mentally Constipated!

My Definition

Mental Constipation: A blockage of some sort that causes the mind to become confused; which in turn leads to a cluttered and unfocused mental state.

Possible Causes of Mental Constipation

     Negative Energy - Negative energy can be a possible cause for the above symptom. Negative energy can be attracted in many ways, knowingly or unknowingly. Negative energy drains your creativity, imagination, thought flow, and overall mental energy. Which is why so many people in today's society are Mentally Constipated. They are overpowered by all the negative energy that is being emitted from countless sources such as Music, T.V., Video Games, and PEOPLE!
The Effects That Mental Constipation May Have On People

     The effects that Mental Constipation have on people today are seen on a everyday basis. So many people feel cluttered and confused which causes so many arguments and fights to happen because one person or another couldn't express themselves verbally which may cause one to become overly frustrated with themselves, possibly resulting in acting inhumane and becoming physical which is the result of WARS as we see it today. Also the majority of the kids in our generation are not participating in any positive groups or acts. Too much negative energy is being targeted to the kids which is why so many kids are failing school and dropping out.
Blocking Negative Energy(Healing)    

     Everyone on this earth has a vibration, and this vibration that you emit can be picked up by others. This means that everyone you come into contact with may change your state of thought, if you let them. Now this can be both good and bad, depending on what energy your body is picking up. If you are feeling a bad vibe from anyone you come into contact with, it is that person's energy that you sense. This lets us know who to keep away or limit from our life's because although you may be doing you, negative people will always try to pull you down and burn you out. BUT, the number one source of negative energy comes from yourself! Your mind is always thinking, and whatever you think a lot about will eventually manifest itself physically because your subconscious mind has been overrun by a constant stream of thoughts. Thoughts are very powerful and your thoughts will be the key to sculpturing your life, because anything and everything that we have created must have first been visualized, remember that!

     Also remember that your mind needs food just like your stomach, so eating the right way will play a big role in clearing your mind. If you've had your fair share of the S.A.D. aka Standard American Diet, then your body is most likely highly toxic and sick. You want to immediately stop that S.A.D. and choose your foods wisely (veggies,fruits,nuts,seed,grains,herbs etc), followed by a deep cleanse. Cleansing can be done by eating a RAW VEGAN diet for an amount of time that you choose to do ( 2-3 weeks preferred) or going on a liquid fast that may consist of only water, fresh fruit juice and/or vegetable juice, and on top of that you should supplement your body with herbs that are very healing and detoxifying. Exercise along with the above works hand in hand, and always remember your thoughts create your doing. Think right and your body will take you in the right direction needed to be in.

     We as human beings are far to smart and advanced to be confused and sick in these days of time. We need to stop sitting on our big o'l behinds and live to our full potential. No matter what negative forces are out there and no matter how many hard obstacles are thrown our way, we can succeed in doing the things we were meant to do on this planet. Give that brain of yours a mental laxative and empty your mind, so that it may be refilled once again! Thanks for tuning in and please continue to tune in for more articles to come. If you like this article please comment below to let me know what your "symptom" is, and I just might blog about it. If you have any questions that need answering please feel free to email me or comment below and I will do my best to answer them.

10-10-10: What Does It Mean?

It is 10:10am/pm on 10-10-10, is this a day to remember or one to be forgotten? Is there any significance to a day and time in an individual’s life? Numerology is the belief that there is a symbolic relationship between numbers and an individual’s life, personality, career, etc. Numerology was considered a branch of mathematics, but in modern times it is considered a tool that has no significance to our daily lives. Numerology can be used either by calculating numbers or by converting the alphabet to numerical value. Each number has a meaning and these meanings can be applied to an individual’s life purpose, career, personality, love, etc. A day such as October 10, 2010, catches the eyes of individuals worldwide because of repeating numbers. Each day has its own energy and to do the numerology of 10-10-10, one needs to break down all aspects of the date and numbers.

The Numbers: (10, 10, 2010, 3, 4, 5)

Zero (0) - Represents greater strength, limited space, and is a symbol of unit. Pluto is the planet equivalent to the number zero. Pluto represents death and regeneration, evolution, sex, and self knowledge. 

One (1) – Denotes change, intellect, man (possibly because according to the bible man came first), willpower, masculinity, and pioneering work. When the number one appears in numerology, it often means new events are in the works- travel, work, conditions, goals, etc. There normally is a definitive purpose and path when the number one is present. When negatively aligned, the number one can be ruthless, domineering, and selfish. The sun is the planet equivalent to the number two. The sun represents life, new beginnings, brilliance, originality, and intellect.

Two (2) – Represents building, woman (possibly because according to the bible woman came second), femininity, emotions, and intuitiveness. When the number two appears in numerology, it often means cooperation and diplomacy. When negatively aligned, the number two can be timid, deceitful, and secretive. The moon is the planet equivalent to the number two. The moon represents cycles, helpfulness, awareness, deliberation, and instability.

The Day: 10/10/2010 = 5 – October 10, 2010 has erroneously been shortened to 10-10-10. If using this as the basis for a numerology analysis this day would be a number three (3), which would be a day of love, expression, and affection. However, to provide an accurate numerology reading of this date, the numbers 10-10-2010, should be used, thus making this day a number five (5). The number five symbolizes new experiences, change, new friends, travel, religious interests, freedom, carelessness, research, and happiness. A day that has a five vibration is one that should be approached with no plans, because things are always apt to change. This is a day of surprise, change, and chaos. This is a day of speed, entertainment, and activity.  Because of the double ‘5’ that makes up the number 10, this day and month is one that is very active and busy. Because of all the activity, conversations and arguments are apt to occur. This is an excellent day for entertaining, partying, attending seminars or concerts, writing, meeting new friends, traveling, making a public debut, and dealing with children. This is a universal day meaning that the vibrations felt are global more so than individual. Mercury is the planet equivalent to the number 5. Mercury represents communication, speed, change, writing, talking, contracts, and travel.

The Month: 10/2010 = 4 – The month of October is represented by the number four. The number four symbolizes hard work and building foundations. This number symbolizes, organization, discipline, restriction. The number four also represents justice without mercy, tolerance, or sympathy. These attributes will settle all the speed and activity from October 10th. Saturn is the planet equivalent to the number four. Saturn represents the taskmaster, limitations, structure, discipline, teachers, and ambition.

The Year: 2010 = 3 – The year 2010 is represented by the number 3. The number three symbolizes love and affection.
