Astrologically Wrapped

That’s a Wrap!


My love for Astrology has blossomed continuously over the past few years.  At first it started as a hobby that I enjoyed exploring, and progressively became a passion I began educating others on.  I have gone to numerous workshops throughout the states, as well as held some of my own.  As you know I have created a blog.. Welcome to Ibertarot!….and genuinely want to spread my love for this ancient study.  Recently while I was trying to decide how to get my website and blog out there a bit more I came across Discountwraps.com.  They are a DIY vehicle vinyl wrap supplier based out of Dallas Texas.  While looking over their website I thought to myself, what a spectacular idea!  Mobile advertisement and I could customize my vehicle wrap to my preference for my suv!  It’s business and a new paint job in one!  I looked a little further into what exactly a vinyl wrap for your vehicle entails.  Basically discount wraps guides you through the process of formating the custom wrap you want for your car.  They then provide videos on how to apply the wrap to your vehicle yourself. I was a little apprehensive about this part, could I really do this project myself!? Then I found that for those like myself they provide a list of professional wrap installers that are affordable and near you.  YESSS this was for me!!!


      Hmm what did I want on my car exactly??  It took me a few days but one morning while I was feeding my cats it came to me.  I wanted my astrological sign on my car with the background being the color of my zodiac gemstone.  Wait, it gets better.  I then added the website address for my blog!!  So if any of you readers are newcomers to this site, and have come to read my posts because you saw my car driving down the street… WELCOME.  For those of you that faithfully read my writings I encourage you looking to advertise or revive the outside exterior of your vehicle to look into this awesome new technique.  I absolutely love my car and feel that I am really getting myself out there by way of advertising.  My passion is the teachings of astrology and i love sharing the knowledge with others.  It’s personal insight and fun rolled into one.  If I can reach just one person with my understanding of this ancient study of the constellations and their powers then that is one more person that may find greater inner knowledge of themselves.

Astrology & Birthstones

      Astrology and Birthstones, What Exactly Is The Correlation?  Originally it was said that Birthstones and your Zodiac sign were associated with one another, as well as your birth month.  Some now believe that you have a Zodiac gemstone and a birthstone.  Zodiac gemstones differ a bit from your birthstone and are also known as Astral stones.  The name Astral stones descended from Astrology and other Holistic beliefs.  It is believed that Astrological  signs are linked to the physical form of  a gemstone here on Earth and thus interacts in part with the wearer.  This being said it is felt that the vibrations from the crystals energy help to improve your own surrounding energy.  Not only enhancing energy flow for the person but also bringing good luck, as well as aiding and improving overall health!

Tides and The Moon



One of the the things that many astrology enthusiasts pay attention to is the moon.  The moon and its different stages are believed to have a noticeable effect on people and their moods.  Some believe this to be unbelievably true, while still others think there is no such proof.  However one thing we do know is that the moon and its gravitational pull have a definite effect on the ocean and it’s tides.  With this being said, if the moon is strong enough to effect the sea, would there not be enough magnetic pull that humans could not be affected as well?  Maybe to begin to dive into the effects of the moon on human moods we first need to understand the effect it has on our tides!

We first should understand what a Lunar Tide is and how it’s created.  The moon and the Earth have an attraction to each other, similar to those of magnets. Their gravitational pull both bouncing off each other in a kind of tug-o-war.  Because of this attraction there is a set of tides created.  Two high tides and two low tides, with the time span of 12 hours and 25 minutes in between high tides.  These tide sets are also referred to as the tidal cycle.  Next we have 3 different types of specific tides:

  • SPRING TIDES- Spring tides occur during either the Full or New Moon, and come from the pull of the moon and the sun together.  Due to the combined pull of both the moon and sun these tides are exceptionally strong.  What does this mean for the tides?  It means the the high tides are veyr high and low tides are very low.


  • NEAP TIDES-  Neap tides occur during the quarter phases of the moon.  The gravitational pull is especially weak at this time making there not much of a difference between high and low tide.  The Sun and The Earth are at a different angle from each other which affects the force of their gravitational pulls on each other.


  • PROXIGEAN TIDE-  This is a very rare tide occurring every one and a half years.  This type of tide only happens when the moon is unusually close to the earth during the New Moon

The next thing we must understand are Solar Tides, which occur because of the attraction and gravitational pull between the Sun and the Earth.  Defining Solar Tides are two water surges that occur.  These water bulges take place every time the earth does a full spin on it’s axis, making it a 24 hour cycle.  When both the Lunar Tides and Solar Tides interact  is when the three types of tides (Spring, Neap, and Proxigean) occur.

There are many outside sources that play a role in how are ocean flows and rises, as well as its timing. Although we may not see the mighty force of that gravitational pull,  it does not mean it is not there.  I however think that if there is a strong enough magnetism out there to affect our tides and the working of the oceans, this same forceful pull can somehow affect our moods and our thought patterns.  As it is often said ,  people especially women tend to get a little batty around Full Moons.  Whether you choose to believe it or not is your choice.  Do a little experience and leading up to the next Full Moon take note of how you are feeling and what your moods are like.  Magnetism is a real thing that affects many things including nature, it is definitely strong enough to have an affect on you!
