Astrology Decans

Also known as Decanates, Decans are subdivisions of the 12 Signs of the Zodiac. They serve as your subruler with your Sign itself remaining dominant. Your subruler slightly adjusts your Sun Sign, exagerating some aspects and downplays others.

Each Sign makes up 30° of the 360° Zodiac Wheel and Decans are 10° meaning each Sign possesses three decans. The ruler of each Sign’s decans is determined through the Elements.

Rules for Bi/MGA Blogging

After endless “advice” being flung at me and other bisexual or MGA people I’ve come up with a list of rules that govern how and when we are allowed to talk about ourselves!

1. Biphobia isn’t real - and nor is panphobia, or any other MGA phobia.
2. Any oppression MGA people face is homophobia.
3. All things that impact people who have same gender attraction will be referred to as Gay. (ex: Gay rights. Gay marriage.)
4. Bisexual/MGA people must never refer to themselves as Gay or Lesbian. To do so is Appropriation.
5. All public figures (real or fictional), in all of history, who experience same gender attraction are Gay or Lesbian (regardless of their personal identity).
      5A. Subrule: All public figures (real or fictional) who experience SGA, who also have different gender relationships will have those dismissed as compulsory heterosexuality.
6. The lived experiences of Gay and Lesbian people is sacrosanct and can never be questioned.
7. The lived experiences of MGA people is to be ignored when it is contrary to the lived experiences of Gay and Lesbian people.
8. The language that Gay and Lesbian people use to discuss their oppression is sacrosanct, because only they are allowed to define their oppression. (see Rule #6)
9. The language that MGA people use to discuss their oppression must be approved by the SGA community, because they are not allowed to define their own oppression (See Rule #7)
10. Any time an MGA person chooses to discuss their experiences, they must provide a disclaimer that they are not referring to “All Gay or Lesbian people”, and must explicitly state that “Straight people are the biggest problem”.
11. All utterances of the words “monosexual” or “monosexism” are entirely forbidden (See rules #7 and #9), with the only exception being to deride other MGA people who use them.
12. All MGA people must graciously accept when Gay and Lesbian people paint all bisexuals or other MGA people in a poor light. To do otherwise is to be Homophobic (See rule #8).
13. Bisexual and MGA people must prove, with no less then 3 sources, any claim to oppression that is contrary to what a SGA person claims.
14. Bisexual and MGA people are forbidden from citing sources that indicate their oppression (see rule #7).
15. When entering in to a relationship with an SGA person, MGA people must provide a disclaimer stating that they are untrustworthy and unfit to be in a relationship.

Go forth and blog my MGA friends! Just follow these 15 easy rules to avoid getting raked over the coals! With these rules, you too can hope to one day be considered a “good bi”!

A Brief Study of the Decans in Astrological Magic

This will be the fifth post in our series on astrological magic. Now that we’ve gone over the placement of the planets, we can start to get into the theory behind magic which draws on the powers of the heavens (the ritual methods and related theory will follow in a later post). Although this post will take us closer to a complete method of astrological magic, you should keep in mind that even with all the information in the series so far, you will probably get very limited results if these posts are all you’re deriving your methods from. Regarding the familiarity you need with the symbols involved in this process, this post really only scratches the surface. I will continue to compile information in this subject, and this series will continue to grow and serve as a reference you can access any time. Please be safe. Feel free to send us an ask if you have any questions.

There is a classical Hermetic method to creating talismans or images concerning any and every body part. I doubt that I will speak of these in detail, because it is such a lengthy subject (I may make a post about it in the future if some necessity arises), but there is some freely accessible information about it available from various online sources. There are also Arabic and Hindu beliefs about the use of different decans for creating talismans or images for countless other purposes, some personal, and others impersonal. I will discuss some of these here. Remember though, to properly use any of the correspondences I’m describing, you will need to have some understanding of the ritual theory involved, and to properly use the ritual theory, you will need some understanding of the symbolism involved. Given that both are equally necessary, I decided to start here.

Every sign in the Zodiac has three decans (they are also sometimes referred to as faces, though decans and faces are often given different ruling planets), which you should familiarize yourself with. Each decan has a subruler (which is usually a different planet than the primary ruler of the sign), and specific properties and symbolic associations, as well as a different visual representation than the sign itself. To find which planet rules each decan, you can think of it this way: Place the sign in question on the ascendant of a hypothetical chart. The first decan is ruled by the planet which rules over the ascendant. The second decan is ruled by the planet which rules over the 5th House. The third decan is ruled by the planet which rules over the 9th House. This is useful to know, especially if you can remember the rulers of each sign and which order they proceed in. To learn how each decan is visually depicted, you should do your own research, because that information is very easy to come by.

Now consider that each decan of the Zodiac can lend you specific beneficial energies for making talismans or other powerful objects, as well as other types of magical work. There are 36 decans total in the Zodiac, and I will briefly describe some of their properties here.

Aries (which is primarily ruled by Mars):

The 1st Decan of Aries is ruled by Mars, and generally lends you a great advantage in any type of battle, literal or figurative. Basically, this face is useful for becoming victorious in a conflict against an enemy.

The 2nd Decan of Aries is ruled by the Sun, and can greatly assist you in gaining the favor of people on powerful positions, or gaining their graces, if they are already short-tempered with you.

The 3rd Decan of Aries is ruled by Jupiter, and can help you bring peaceful resolutions to official conflict, conflict between politicians, and problems among high clergy (as if you’d really want to deal with clergy at all).

Taurus (which is primarily ruled by Venus):

The 1st Decan of Taurus is ruled by Venus, and you can use it to improve the relationship between spouses.

The 2nd Decan of Taurus is ruled by Mercury. This decan is useful if you want to cause conflict between women.

The 3rd Decan of Taurus is ruled by Saturn. This one is good for causing hatred. It’s also a useful sign if you wish to make a man impotent, or to make a woman become disgusted with physical intimacy. You can also use this sign to help destroy romantic relationships.

Gemini (which is primarily ruled by Mercury):

The 1st Decan of Gemini is ruled by Mercury. You can use it to damage the intelligence and cognition of a person.

The 2nd Decan of Gemini is ruled by Venus, which can help you cause missing people to return, or to bring fugitives back to a certain place.

The 3rd Decan of Gemini is ruled by Saturn. It allows you to cause a person’s reputation to be destroyed. People will say hateful things about the person of your choice, and they will likely become subject to some kind of ridicule.

Cancer (which is primarily ruled by the Moon):

The 1st Decan of Cancer is ruled by the Moon. This is a time to call for rain. It can also serve to bring back people who are missing, no matter how they are traveling.

The 2nd Decan of Cancer is ruled by Mars. In this decan, you can try to ward off snow or rain. It also helps you banish snakes and other wild animals, whether you are at sea or on land.

The 3rd Decan of Cancer is ruled by Jupiter. It appears to be best for helping seafaring travelers survive dangerous situations.

Leo (which is ruled by the Sun):

The 1st Decan of Leo is ruled by the Sun. It’s a good time to cast talismans to help you get in the good graces of a politician or another fairly powerful figure. It’s also effective for causing wild predators like bears to gather in the place of your choice (within reason).

The 2nd Decan of Leo is ruled by Jupiter, and it serves to ward off wild predators, which is particularly useful for protecting livestock, or domestic animals.

The 3rd Decan of Leo is ruled by Mars. This decan is used to bring wild predators to places populated by humans.

Virgo (which is Mercurial):

The 1st Decan of Virgo is ruled by Mercury, and you can use this decan to make talismans for assisting you in writing and business.

The 2nd Decan of Virgo is ruled by Saturn, and it’s useful if you’re trying to bring destruction to someone’s tools or writing utensils.

The 3rd Decan of Virgo is ruled by Venus. You can use this decan to make images which keep spouses on good terms with each other.

Libra (which is ruled by Venus):

The 1st Decan of Libra is ruled by Venus. You can use it to make talismans which can strengthen or weaken a woman’s love.

The 2nd Decan of Libra is ruled by Saturn, and can be used to weaken the love of people of any gender.

The 3rd Decan of Libra is ruled by Mercury. This one is useful for talismans which help fugitives return safely.

Scorpio (which is ruled by Mars):

The 1st Decan of Scorpio is ruled by Mars. It’s useful for attracting spiders, snakes, and other venomous creatures to the place of your choice.

The 2nd Decan of Scorpio is ruled by Jupiter, and is useful if you want to make a talisman to repel the aforementioned venomous creatures.

The 3rd Decan of Scorpio is ruled by the Moon. This decan is good for talismans reducing the severity of rainstorms, or redirecting them altogether. In general, this decan is useful for preventing water damage of all kinds.

Sagittarius (which is ruled by Jupiter):

The 1st Decan of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, and here you can make talismans which assist love, friendship, and good will.

The 2nd Decan of Sagittarius is ruled by Mars. This is a good time to make talismans for causing health problems and illness in any person you choose.

The 3rd Decan of Sagittarius is ruled by the Sun, and talismans made in this decan can help you get into the good graces of bosses, and of people in positions of great power.

Capricorn (which is ruled by Saturn):

The 1st Decan of Capricorn is Saturn’s. Talismans from this decan can aid people who hunt for food, and can also help increase the yield and quality of milk from farm animals who lactate.

The 2nd Decan is ruled by Venus. This decan supports talismans which help goats yield more milk (which will be of great interest to one of our mods), and to aid the health and population of bees in the area of your choice. You can also use this decan to make talismans which draw birds to the place of your choice.

The 3rd Decan of Capricorn is ruled by Mercury. This decan is basically only useful for making talismans which intend to destroy the things which are aided by the first two decans of Capricorn. I really hope you don’t ever see fit to use this.

Aquarius (which is ruled by Saturn):

The 1st Decan of Aquarius is ruled by Saturn. It’s useful for creating talismans to aid friendship with elderly people regardless of whether they are powerful or in a lower social class. This is also a good time to make talismans which can help you find hidden treasures of any kind.

The 2nd Decan of Aquarius is ruled by Mercury. This decan is good for making talismans which help you make friends with young or youthful people.

The 3rd Decan of Aquarius is ruled by Venus. This decan is particularly useful if you want a talisman to help you make friends with women, or to gain the love of women.

Pisces (which is ruled by Jupiter):

The 1st Decan of Pisces is ruled by Jupiter. This decan is good for making talismans which aid one in fishing, and in safe seafaring.

The 2nd Decan of Pisces is ruled by the Moon. At this time you can make effective talismans for helping plants (especially plants which bear fruit). You can also make talismans to call the rain or cause fish to gather at the location of your choice (only in bodies of water, of course).

The 3rd Decan of Pisces is ruled by Mars. Talismans made at this time can be made for successful military ventures, as well as successful hunts.

Before you begin any work, it’s important to know that every planet corresponds to certain materials (specific metals, stones, and sometimes types of glass) which effectively conduct their respective powers. For reference, here is a master list of many of the things ruled over by the planets, signs, and fixed stars.

It might also also important for you to learn the 7 groups of constituents of nature, each group consisting of 4 basic constituents. There are 28 such constituents of nature in all (according to this particular system of symbolism, of course). You can find information on these in almost any introductory volume on the occult, but in particular, I find Henry Cornelius Agrippa to be a good source for information of this kind. These 28 constituents correspond to the 28 Mansions of the Moon, and Pythagorean numerology also finds 28 to be a very important number, so it appears that this system has been thoroughly developed over a very long period of time, and you might benefit from doing some independent research on the numerological importance of the number 28 in various occult and philosophical traditions.

I will conclude this post here. I hope to further expand on this information and more of the necessary symbolism for astrological magic very soon. I hope this post has been helpful to you. Thank you very much for reading.


anonymous asked:

I have Pluto in 1st, Scorpio rising and I'm Pluto dominant... I always attract manipulative and toxic people. What can I do?

Well for one, Pluto in the 1st can create this dichotomy, where the person themselves is richly magnetic and alluring. However they may be very quiet, and unassuming almost unaware of their own power. People take advantage of people who don’t know their own power and worth. Also I would ask you to take note of the ruler of the seventh house, and the subruler of the decant as well

anonymous asked:

Hi, I love your blog. Is there a difference between December and January Capricorns? I can't put my finger on it, but I always got perfectly along with December Caps wheres my relationships with January Cappies tend to be a little bit more bumpy. Is it a coincidence or are there differences? If so could you elaborate a little bit on distinct characteristics of Caps born in January and December?


Keyword: Responsibility Saturn, planet of discipline, is both your ruler and subruler, which gives you a serious mien and a talent for handling respon- sibility. You are precise and orderly and generally don’t trust oth- ers to look after details. When you undertake a task you complete it to the best of your ability. Once you’ve set your mind on a goal, you are relentless and determined. There is a quiet force to your personality; other people are always aware of your presence. You are both subtle and aggressive; you have an instinct for knowing how far you can push. Ambition usually motivates you, for you are never content to be an underling. Love brings out your affectionate and demonstrative nature. When aroused you are a passionate person.


Keyword: Fairness

Venus, planet of love, softens Saturn’s stern influence and gives a gentleness and serenity to your personality. People respond to your warmth and charm. Venus here also indicates an interest in beauty and design, and perhaps some creative ability. In your work, you are practical and persistent. You are a doer who does not waste precious time. You enjoy periods of solitude to read, think, explore new subjects. Possibly you carry on a large correspondence, for you write well. Travel holds fascination for you. Your lover, family, and friends take first place in your heart; you are devoted to their wants and needs. You are reticent about your feelings. Love is a deep emotion, and you don’t readily speak of it.


Keyword: Honor

Mercury, planet of mental energy, adds impetus to the discipline of Saturn. You have a quick intellect and flexibility of character that allows you to adapt to different people and situations. When you give your word you stick to it; you treat others fairly and with respect. Friends and admirers are drawn to your spiritual nature. You are an idealist and a dreamer, but when motivated you are also an indefatigable worker. Money and material comforts are important to you, and you usually quickly spot where your best financial interests lie. You are a person of deep desires, though this may not be apparent on the surface. Life is often marked by a struggle to fulfill your inner needs.

Also if you are willing to give the occult side of things a go, they break up the two personalities very well using tarot cards.
