The Wild & Untamed Temptress: The 21st Century Woman & Her Power

As time continues on and change remains as life’s only constant, it is more and more evident that the feminine energy of the world is being unleashed.  A very strong femininity that dominates and controls through her innate power of intuition and her mantra of “heart over mind”.

It seems to me as if many, many women around the world are connecting back to a deeper side of themselves.  Some may call it a “dark side”, but it has more to do with ancient feminine wisdom.  Special secrets and orders that tap into another realm of womanhood, that has been suppressed for hundreds and thousands of years.  Certain taboos, if you will, that the masses have been involuntarily ignorant of, due to the rewriting of history and faulty social constructs.

From Beyonce’s recent performance at the 2014 Video Music Awards show to her latest album, having more of a sexual and gritty overtone compared to her previous work.  Or even Nicki Minaj’s overt mandates of what kind of man she wants in her lyrics, to your average woman in everyday life searching and trying to figure out how to express herself in all aspects and facets of her true nature.  I see it happening, everywhere, and it certainly makes you sit back and ponder; What does it mean to be a woman in the 21st century?

And we all love sex, right?  Then why is it a problem when a woman wants to express herself in a forthcoming way?  Or maybe, even in a subtle way;  we have come to consciously accept the theory that a woman’s sexuality is her own, as long as she “controls it” or puts some kind of cap on it.  Fuck that.  Those days are O-V-E-R.  And men WILL deal, the church WILL deal, the government and media will certainly have to deal with this surge of carefreeness that women are learning to step into and flow with.  Especially those, whom innately are meant to live in such a passionate and instinctively driven manner.

In conclusion, it’s all about balance.  If things were truly in a Ying and Yang form within society, everyone’s lives would be a lot easier and people would be much more happier.  That is why this hot, sexual and over-bearing energy is beginning to rise.  Everything that appears on the surface is a reflection of something deep within.  Women have had enough.  Generations before us had enough, and now, it is time to own and hone our nature as beautiful, feminine goddesses and tenacious warriors.

There is no need to feel threatened, prideful or angered.  It’s just in a woman’s nature to always know how to stir the pot and get what she wants.  And it’s all in the name of love.

Tantalizing Tuesdays

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay
– Old English Nursery Rhyme

Tuesdays have always been my favorite day of the week.  I find that for me, personally, I am super-sensitive and my intuition is highly in-tune on this day.  Things are just much more spiritually intense and in my face.  Therefore, it is a very chill day for me.  I like to relax and take it easy, accomplish what needs to be accomplished, and also have time for reflection.

As I got older, and more into the study of astrology, I learned that Tuesday is ruled by the planet Mars, which is the traditional ruler of Aries and Scorpio.  And as a Scorpio, this made perfect sense.  In fact, I was also born on a Tuesday.  So, I’d like to say that Tuesdays are MY day, a day of regeneration, birth and renewal.

Is there a day of the week that you have a special connection to?
If so, which one, and why?

“The Takeover” vs. “Ether”: Large Professor Weighs in On The Combat Jack Show

“Just be still…  And it will be bestowed upon you.” – Large Professor 

When it comes to Hip Hop, it’s always very interesting and intriguing to hear inside stories and information about historic events that took place, that the public only gets a surface view of.  And in this video, Queensbridge legend, Large Professor, holds no punches; modestly, while giving us a glimpse of one of the most talked about rivalries in music history:  Jay-Z vs. Nas.

In this segment, Large Pro sits down with the men of The Combat Jack Show on Complex TV, and gives us his view of this “beef” as an insider and close comrade of Nas, but entails more about the musical process of creating “Ether” and his opinion on Hov’s “Takeover”, which is what initially started this musical clash.

From Nas’ writing process, his lyrical attack method, how the energy in the studio was, to the first beat that Nas intended to use: Large Professor paints an epic picture of how this whole scenario went down.  To all of my real Hip Hop heads out there, this is a must watch.  It’s not often that we get this kind of information, especially from a reliable source; such as, Large Pro.  He relays the science to us, so lovely.

Epic Quotes #5: Special Edition

Cultivate your curves – they may be dangerous but they won’t be avoided.

I’m no model lady.  A model’s just an imitation of the real thing.

Personality is the glitter that sends your little gleam across the footlights and the orchestra pit into that big black space where the audience is.

I never loved another person the way I loved myself.

The score never interested me, only the game.
