Cosmic Tea Time…

We’ve experienced a New Moon in Virgo ♍️ September 17, 2020

This New Moon 🌑 gave us the support necessary to make practical plans, make new healthier lifestyle changes and manifest the success we desire. New Moons in general are really good for manifesting the things we need 🆚 the trivial things we have convinced ourselves we want.

The past Full Moon 🌕 in Pisces ♓️ September 1st, 2020

Gave us the room to release and remove the rose colored glasses of any illusive realities and “Truths” we tend to tell ourselves when we don’t want to release what’s not working.

It may have appeared to be difficult to see what aspects of our lives we need to release during that moon transit but the real truths showed us, nevertheless. Our responsibility during these transits was to be honest with ourselves of the things that are not working. That way we can operate well in the things that are working for us.

Virgo ♍️ energy is the sign of work, industry, mental health, and practicality. Pisces energy is the sign of dreams, visions, divine creativity and spirituality. The polar opposites can collide when there is awareness. For example faith is not something that should always be taken practically.

Just because you have faith that you will get a million dollars tomorrow doesn’t mean it’ll practically happen. Not to say it’s impossible but it’s not the most practical thing to bank on when you haven’t done the practical work.

This energy is preparing us for the transits happening in October. Now that Saturn 🪐 has gone direct (Sept. 29th) we now see the areas in our lives where we can implement discipline.

Discipline is freedom and what we need in order to set this new foundation in our lives. Adjusting to the world and it’s “new normal” is an illusion. We are the masters of our own destinies even in the midst of tragedy in this world.

Full Moon in Aries ♈️ October 1, 2020

Allows us to destroy, burn and release old structures that are outdated and no longer serving us. With the help of Mars in Retrograde (also in Aries) we have no choice but to be honest of our truest desires and the passions that drives us. All motives are being exposed and has been since Full Moon in Scorpio ♏️.

This energy encouraged us to take our mask off back in Taurus ♉️ season, leading us to be more vulnerable to change our spiritual value. Aries and Scorpio, both ruled by Mars is giving us the permission to be casket ready so we can transform and rise like the Phoenix that we are.

Trauma, fear and oppression is being unpacked with the help of Pluto in Capricorn ♑️ (until October 4th). Lion’s gate 8/8/2020 left us with the choice of being on the side of suffering or ascension.

When we allowed our egos and pride to stand down during Leo ♌️ Season we were able to see where things hurt so we can truly heal, release and transcend. The six (6) retrogrades & eclipse season during this summer was our blessing in disguise. Giving us time to slow down, feel and reevaluate the path we must follow to our destiny.

Now that we are in the midst of harvest season and Fall Equinox 🍂🍁 we can now reap the benefits of our labor. Not the regular nine (9) to five (5) physical work that we’re used to but that twenty- four seven (24/7) spiritual work that we were all well over due for.

As things go back to a more progressive time we can truly manifest fearlessly if we have truly been doing the work. Following the sun and moon cycles had been a lost art in our culture due to miseducation. Now that we have more astrologers, diviners, medicine men and women speaking up there’s no excuse to not question how we relate and connect to our universe. It is simply our birth right.

In the month of October. The season of death and transformation is truly amongst us. I believe most spiritual beings are more than ready to ascend and operate through our higher selves unapologetically.

Full moon in Aries ♈️ (Oct. 1st) allows us to initiate the destruction of anything that is not serving our higher selves. This cardinal fire is the beginning of “New Emotional Intelligence” I say.

Libra ♎️ Season is about partnerships whether marriage or business. Questions you may wanna ask yourself in this Venus ruled season is:

  • “Who am I willing to lay in bed with?”
  • “Am I comfortable with waking up with this energy everyday?”
  • “How do I relate to the people around me ?”
  • Are you included in this “New World Order”?

Refer to Kanye West Video “Famous” for symbolic reasons & reflect with friends about what you think Kanye was getting at.

By the time Scorpio season is here you should be comfortable with who you share your intimate space with. Whether it’s a friend, lover, business partner or spouse.

How is the intimate relationship with yourself? How do you value you? How do others value you? These are questions that will occur by the time Full Moon/Blue Moon in Taurus ♉️ arrives (Oct. 31st). Not just a Full Moon but a Blue Moon on Halloween.

This will surely be spiritually LIT 🔥 with the right intentions for self. Be sure to get your rituals and routines together like Virgo season taught us.


Until November my cosmic Sunflowers 🌻.

Urban Social Responsibility in Commerce with @ChiTownShake & @TyMoneySBMG

Social commerce is Urban Culture’s leading stock. I support this message, not just the artist he’s supporting but the entire message to help increase the equity in Chicago’s market. We’re the 3rd largest market competing with Houston for a slot we’ve had undeniably long.

Snatched from Wikipedia (not an official source but it’s good enough for you to get the picture)

Chicago creatives and entrepreneurs should stick together more to help our market become not only navigated by us but owned by us based on our buys and/or interest.

Many enthusiasts have come from near and far places to be influenced by our culture. There are many businesses, opportunities, talent, and resources in the city of Chicago. We just have to put in our bid and own our social commerce.

@KanyeWest Out Here Checking @Forbes , for his Billionaire Accomplishment

Ye is really from a “tribe called check a hoe”, that is Chicago. Two of hip hop’s first billionaire artist are from New York and Chicago. What a wonderful time to be alive.

According to Forbes, Ye is worth 1.3 Billion United States 🇺🇸 Dollars 💵 but according to Ye, since he claims they can’t count, he’s worth 3.3 Billion. Allegedly Kanye reached out to Forbes after they published their annual billionaires list, according to Shade Room, because they didn’t put him on it.

He texted a staff member saying “You know what you’re doing”, adding to the conversation, “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name”

“Forbes journalist Zack O’Malley Greenburg explained that when the magazine featured West on the cover of the magazine last year, they didn’t label him a billionaire.”, according to CNN.

In conclusion, it seems that he was undervalued if they didn’t label him a billionaire and he had to come forward with the receipts 🧾 to receive credit for his claim. Regardless, Ye is a Billionaire, that’s facts, and he wants the world 🌎 to know.

@theestallion, Contracts, and the Business of Music at a Young Age

Megan Thee Stallion is in for a big lesson when it comes to finance and contracts. March 1, Megan shared a video via Instagram dishing her contract details with 1501 Entertainment, and its CEO Carl Crawford, who’s an ex Major League Baseball player. She stated that she didn’t understand or know the verbiage that was in the contract that she signed at 20 years of age (now 25), and when she finally got a real management team with lawyers through her management deal with Roc Nation, they brought the details up to see if she understood the terms. She stated she didn’t and wanted to renegotiate. The label isn’t in favor of her releasing new music but is being sued by the artist who is seeking the termination of her contract and a temporary restraining order that has been granted by a judge in Harris County, Texas, to allow her to release new music.

Megan has accused the defendants of common law fraud, breach of contract, fraudulent inducement, fraud by non-disclosure, tortious interference with prospective business relations, violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act, negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence. The plaintiff is seeking a temporary and permanent injunction and a declaration that her contract is “unconscionable, unenforceable and/or void.”, according to the court documents obtained by E! News.  The restraining order will expire March 16, 2020 at 11:59 PM.

What can we learn from this?

It’s important to ask questions when negotiating agreements and understanding all the terms. If you can’t afford a lawyer, it’s important to consult with people in the industry. It’s better than signing something then later having to renege on your business deal.

Yes Megan was young, and I do side with her being taken advantage of because it’s a painful history of artist being incarcerated in deals that do not serve them but those who invest in their capital to record, release, promote, and distribute their art deserve a return (ROI). I hope that this situation can be worked out because everyone deserves an accurate return based on their investment.

Chicago’s Legend in Making @FBG_DUCK Has Self-Confessed Chicago’s Legends

FBG Duck, a Chicago Musical Illustrator, published a video recorded by Money Strong TV on his channel two days ago on Dec. 7, 2019; and with the apparent loss of legends from the City of Chicago, who are without a doubt gone too soon because of various tragic situations; he proclaims their affects in and on culture. In his illustrated story he mentions Jojo, Pappy, Zack TV, Lil Marc, Dooski, Nuski, Fredo Santana, LA Capone, Lil Mister, and Smylez. With the current loss of another great Chicago Legend Juice Wrld; and Famous Dex being recently hospitalized to recover from seizures, there is no concrete word if he has been released, there is much to be concerned about.

The murder and drug epidemic of Chicago has depreciated the circulation of producers in culture from the city, putting the ideas out there to be mocked by upcoming or lurking seasoned artist to develop from other markets. Every artist mentioned has a different level of success, impact, trade, and skill that contributed to the identity of who Chicago is in the urban culture world. A legend is someone who creates or develops a traditional story, who taps into their genius, and sculps a path for others to follow or to observe only to be influenced by their impact. No matter how well known the legend is globally, it can be very well known in pockets or wide areas to be proclaimed a legend.

This brings attention to the social issues that we need to solve in Chicago, and beyond, that deal ultimately with poverty, civic engagement, health, and the brotherhood of humanity. His piece of art pushes towards conversations that need to be had to better our community and restore unity between the gangs or just those who are conflicted and need to heal in order to let go of past conflicts or traumas. In the words of FBG Duck, “just to show yourself a better you”, is worth the participation in helping leaders like him carry messages like this far and wide in the diaspora to help appreciate the progress made in the culture.

I’d like to send love and light to all of the families of our lost and slain ones, even those we lost to non violent tragic situations because we are all still suffering from a bigger issue. Our health, wealth, and our mind state suffers or take constant hits (Urban Dark Hue Beings) because we are in a constant state of oppression while walking dead. We must prescribe a remedy to our ignorance, discipline ourselves, and love one another because the world is depending on it. We are depending on it. You existence is dependent on it.

We don’t die we multiply, so rest peacefully Juice Wrld , Jojo, Pappy, Zack TV, Lil Marc, Dooski, Nuski, Fredo Santana, LA Capone, Lil Mister, and Smylez . We love and wish you all where still among us but we will continue to push y(our) energy, that will never be destroyed, into the world with love.

@Dgainz #ODDBALL2 #timeless #OddBall #OutNow #AllPlatforms #MustListen

As an oddball myself, I can relate to this project. It’s everything the odd ball society has been waiting for: creativity in a rare and raw form. I went back to Timeless, a compilation from 2016. I listened to OddBall , number one, to tap into the project that started the series of odd ball shit.

Let’s Observe the Growth

I know this article is about his recent project but I would like to highlight a few tracks from his previous projects. I was reminded of a few of my favorite listens. First, let’s deal with the the new release then trickle our way down.

New “Wit The Shit” w/ Reefa Rei

Check out the full project.

Timeless

  • Prevail-This song is refreshing and feels good when you’re having a rough time. It reminds you that you will be victorious Everything will be OK, just trust the process and God.
  • What’s the Deal– You have to see what’s up? What’s going on, what’s the deal? Learn about what’s going on.
  • Makin Magic-a positive message of manifesting and using your super-natural powers and instinct to create, build, and navigate to your destiny.

Oddball

  • Ain’t Been –You know how it is when you haven’t been the same, in a while. You need a reminder to get back to doing YOU! Sometimes you can’t let people and circumstances change you to the point where you ain’t you.
  • Lost in Pain-typical shit that happens and leaves you in pain, consciously and unconsciously, maneuvering through life in Chicago. So much hurt generationally that has been passed down to us we can’t even pen point where some of our insecurities come from. This song modernly connects to the “playerism” in Chicago. Fuck these hoes.
  • Call the Preacher-I just love the beat and vibes of how the words flow in the chorus. The hook is so catchy.
  • Potholes-We have hella potholes in Chicago, and if you not paying attention, you’ll be sure to fall in a few. This songs is a metaphor that reflects situations you should avoid, just like these damn potholes.

@BlueCheezRicky #RightNow #DigitalRelease #Promo for #Upcoming #Media Flow

“Right Now” is what I would consider a true presentation of storytelling and creativity. Taking on the gangster style of art to portray the meaning of family. We all know that the mob is critical when it comes to family and feuds. Taking some inspiration from Al Capone and of course his own essence in his newest digital release.

Right Now

Watch Homecoming: A Film by @Beyonce on @Netflix #MustSee #Inspiring #Doc

BEYONCÉ

I was up until 6 A.M. getting my entire life at Beychella Homecoming. I am so inspired by this woman. Her creativity, dedication and hard work gives you hope out here in this “White Man’s World”, as a “black person”. I’ve heard many say “African Americans” have no culture, and Bey just wasn’t letting it slide as the “First African American” to headline Coachella. She came with the sugar, honey, tea, and lemonade for those who don’t know the history of the United States of America and its relational cultural flow.

Her HBCU theme was brilliant with features from Jay-Z, Destiny Childs, Solange, and her selected homecoming participants of HBCUs.

She made it look cool to accept struggles and failures of culture as a collective. She made sure that it was enough representation to go around for everyone, especially for brown folks in America. I’m pretty sure you’ve already seen it, but if you haven’t it’s a must. She gives you a behind the scenes look at what it took for her to put on a grand performance. It was packed with so much energy that I cried a few times during her performance, and remind you I did see it when it was streamed live but I just wasn’t expecting to see her in such a vulnerable state, as a woman, being that she is a very private person.

I read in between the lines. Bey checked a lot of people who had something to say about her, over her 22-year career. One of her songs was coded with a message to the conspiracy theorist who follow the stories of the mass appeal and manipulation of the Illuminati occult {Formation}. Overall her music direction told a beautiful story, and I look forward to watching it again when inspiration is in need.
