for having to cut today’s postings short. I have to run to the grocery store and get Tom the Turkey. He is my special guest every year. Along with dressing, gravy, sweet potatoes and etc., just thinking about it, I’m getting hungry.
Anyway I am sorry. I will try to put some information on the blog tonight. Thank you for understanding,
This holiday time of year can be hard, especially for those away from home who have no pumpkin pie prospects. If you’re not sure if you’ll be breaking bread with friends on Thanksgiving but you’d surely like to be invited somewhere swell to talk turkey, then try this ages old piece of advice. Take one orange and one lemon and stud them all over with whole cloves. According to ancient lore, the orange now represents all the others around you (the potential invite) and the lemon symbolizes you (the happy and stuffed invitee.) Leave that citrus sitting on any windowsill for three to nine days and then expect the dinner of your dreams. With all this sweet and sour going on, I can almost guarantee that you won’t be eating Chinese take-out while watching the Turkey Day parade! Keep your eyes peeled because once you put these fruits to work for you, the invites immediately follows!

61: Centering in Truth
General Meaning: Truth involves establishing an aware relationship between your inner core and the circumstances in your life. Centering in truth involves the ability to perceive a fundamental wisdom, reflected within yourself and the people you know.
Truth is transformed into power when you dissolve prejudice and make yourself receptive to the world as it really is. Truth’s power can be a remarkable force indeed — yet is rarer than generally imagined. It can be maintained only by cultivating a genuine openness to things as they are — a willingness to see, rather than merely look.
Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked; if you cloak genuine mysteries in dogma, opportunities for new insight will be lost. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds.
In any debate, the power to perceive the truth in the other side’s argument is essential to achieving success. It is possible to influence even the most difficult people, or improve the most difficult circumstance, through the power of universal truth — for unvarnished truth is something to which all things naturally respond. Get in touch with the part of yourself that is aware of this universal force. Cultivate this inner resource, and you will become adept at using it to bond with others to support a common purpose.
||Jade Runes are most commonly used for questions about love, friendship, and relationships. Ken is the rune of light and knowledge, driving away darkness and ignorance and revealing hidden truth. This rune also brings forth images of friendship and comfort. Ken is the light of inspiration, the light of imagination, and a beacon in the darkest hours.
This Tarot Deck: Dragon
In the most practical terms, what has traditionally been called the Emperor card represents the highest leadership, a head of state or the most exemplary and powerful person in the realm. This archetypal ruler is responsible for the positive working out of affairs of a society or community, which are directly proportional to his well being and happiness.
The more enlightenment and cosmic perspective this energy brings, the better life is for all. The Emperor archetype masters the world of matter and physical manifestation. When you apply this card to your situation, acknowledge your potentials for mastery. Reinforce a sense of sovereignty within yourself, despite any self-limiting beliefs, habits or appearances to the contrary.
Remaining pleasant may be a challenge for us early in the day when the socially conscious Libra Moon runs into a square with unforgiving Pluto. We might feel as if someone is trying to take advantage of our easygoing behavior. Meanwhile, we gradually begin to withdraw emotionally as vulnerable Venus forms a cooperative sextile with austere Saturn. Instead of seeking immediate gratification, we’re willing to wait for more lasting satisfaction.
You might be very appreciative of a long-time partner or a steadfast friend who continues to stand by you through good times and bad. You’re inclined now to tell him or her how you feel, but you may be so insistent about expressing your feelings that your sentiment sounds forced. Don’t try so hard; a simple statement of gratitude will be more easily received and is worth more than one that rambles on endlessly.
You can find peace of mind during this busy period without getting too distracted by all your big ideas. However, you still could overdo something that makes you feel good. Thankfully, reacting impulsively isn’t your style, especially as your key planet Venus moves toward a sextile with sensible Saturn, reminding you that all actions have consequences. Practicing moderation now is your key to happiness.
You may be feeling self-assured these days, but overconfidence at the wrong time can land you in a pile of trouble. Don’t be so eager to please just because you want to demonstrate how nice you are to a friend. Instead of getting yourself into a situation that requires a lot of your time and effort today, limit your involvement before you’re in over your head. It’s easier to maintain autonomy now than to untangle yourself from an emotional drama later on.
You typically don’t like it when people disagree for no apparent reason. Being a peacemaker is one way to smooth over ruffled feathers, but it may sound easier than it actually is today. You could have the very best of intentions, but others might think you’re trying to control them. Instead of changing anyone else’s behavior, shift your own attitude. Let people know how you feel and then back away to give them time to process their reactions.
You may be a bit conflicted today because you cannot make up your mind. You don’t want others to perceive you as being wishy-washy, so it’s easier to withdraw than to try and explain your uncertainty. If you share your current dilemma, your friends might push you to hurry up and decide. Take your time and don’t say anything until you’ve arrived at your own conclusions.
Although you may try to limit your activities today, you could be lured into participating in someone else’s agenda. You might ignore another person’s idea at first, but as the plan begins to sound better, you become more tempted to jump on board. Even if you resonate with an innovative concept now, it’s still smarter to say no to another obligation. Keep your feet on the ground and focus on your priorities until you have more free time to help out others without compromising your own goals.
You may be quieter than usual today, yet others can still appreciate what you have to offer now that the Moon is in your easygoing sign. They seem to understand that your strengths are being energized by a spiritual belief that you can’t put into words. Thankfully, you don’t have to say much; all you have to do is maintain integrity between your actions and your heart.
The Moon’s visit to your 12th House of Secrets may have you slipping back into your past in order to find the inspiration you need to handle current events. Fortunately, you’re a champion at connecting with life’s subtle mysteries and you’re willing to dig as deep as necessary now to uncover the answers. Keep in mind that your realizations may be so complex that you cannot explain them to anyone else, anyhow. However, there’s no pressure to share your discoveries until you’re ready.
Talking about moderation is one thing, but following through with sensible behavior can often be a challenge for you. Although your key planet Jupiter has recently bestowed his extravagance on you, it’s strict Saturn’s turn today, reminding you to tighten your belt and show some common sense. Then again, the radiant Sun’s shift into your sign tomorrow suggests that your self-restraint may not be long-lived.
It’s not easy to stay on task with waves of optimism giving you new hope. However, the idea of getting something for nothing isn’t as appealing now, making you more willing to work for what you want. Fortunately, this mature strategy will likely bring you the rewards you seek as long as you stay focused on your goals and continue steadily on your path without taking any impulsive shortcuts.
This could be your day of reckoning if you are overextended. Unfortunately, you may have reached too far by spending too much energy on a project or buying an expensive item that you really didn’t need. Past actions catch up with you now as you struggle to regain firm footing. Even if you don’t immediately see positive results from today’s efforts, rest assured that your persistence will eventually have the effect you desire.
You’re tempted to act in an overly demanding manner today because you may believe that you deserve more than you have. Unfortunately, the squeaky wheel doesn’t always get the grease and you could receive a greater payoff by just being patient, instead. Value-conscious Venus in your 10th House of Status forms a supportive sextile with calculating Saturn, giving you strength of purpose and the ability to wait for sweet satisfaction.
A more cautious and down to earth approach to relationships is recommended this week. Chatty Mercury turns retrograde in enthusiastic Sagittarius on Thursday, tempting us to make promises that are difficult to keep. Romantic Venus’ shift into responsible Capricorn on Saturday doesn’t leave much room for error, so move carefully if you don’t want to make any mistakes.
Reining in your enthusiasm is essential to earning and maintaining trust this weekend. The outgoing Sagittarius Moon encourages you to overlook practical matters in your desire for excitement. However, loving Venus’ entry into serious Capricorn on Saturday suggests that your behavior will have lasting effects on your relationships. It’s perfectly fine to pursue pleasure, but exercising a little self-control goes a long way to gaining respect from those you admire.
Speaking frankly may rock your relationship boat this weekend, but withholding important feelings could be even worse. The outspoken Sagittarius Moon is traveling through your 8th House of Intimacy on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday, stirring up thoughts that you may not be able to keep to yourself. Additionally, your romantic ruling planet Venus enters your 9th House of Truth on Saturday, gently reminding you that honesty is the best policy. Wait for the appropriate moment and then deliver your message with kindness for the best possible outcome.
This could be an intense weekend with a potential for emotional extremes. The Sagittarius Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Partners on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday should enliven your social life. Your enthusiasm connects you with outgoing people, making it easy to share good times. Yet valuable Venus’ entry into responsible Capricorn on Saturday can put a distinct chill in the air. Exhibiting maturity and patience helps you gracefully adapt to any sudden changes in the emotional atmosphere.
Expect things to shift in matters of the heart when loving Venus enters loyal Capricorn and your 7th House of Partners on Saturday. However, even this orderly sign cannot keep surprises from shaking up relationships. Sweet Venus forms a stressful square with unruly Uranus to wake up and electrify your connections with others. Feelings and plans can change in an instant; exercising your flexibility is essential to managing the chaotic energy without panicking. Keep your sense of humor intact as laughter is the best way to relax the tension in the air.
It’s playtime for you when the Moon dances into adventurous Sagittarius and your 5th House of Romance on Thursday night. You shouldn’t find it difficult to have fun and to attract all the attention your heart desires this weekend. There is, though, a possibility that you will take some personal risks that can push people to extremes. Some may be delighted by your bold and brash behavior while others could be shocked by your aggressiveness. Stop for a moment to consider your audience before you continue your show, and no one’s feelings will get hurt.
Messages are wildly mixed this weekend because the love planet Venus moves into your romantic 5th house on Saturday, which usually makes you more captivating to others. However, radical Uranus’ stressful square to sensual Venus springs surprises that could knock your plans for a loop with a sudden change of heart. Though if you’re willing to play in new and unfamiliar ways, you could have a shockingly good time.
Pleasure could be right around the next corner this weekend with the friendly Sagittarius Moon playing in your 3rd House of Environment on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. If you’re searching for a new companion, the spotlight on this neighborly part of your chart can connect you with someone not far from where you live. If you already have a partner, expect some lively conversations that surprise you with their openness and honesty. The truth could be unsettling, so speak with care and compassion if you don’t want to shake someone up or turn your love life upside down.
You may feel carefree about spending your money and expending your energy with the Moon traveling in outgoing Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Resources on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. It’s appropriate to take some risks now and invest more in yourself. Of course, going too far can be costly, but if you stretch your boundaries you will create more opportunities for romantic encounters. However, if a situation doesn’t turn out as you expect, don’t let your disappointment discourage you from continuing to take chances on love.
The emotional Moon is hanging out in your sign this Thursday night, Friday and Saturday, which tends to dramatize your feelings. Going from the heights of ecstasy to the depths of despair makes for a wild and potentially uncomfortable experience. If you’re able to moderate your actions and attitudes, your weekend will be more enjoyable. However, playing it safe is not your usual strategy. So if you still want to shoot for the Moon, buckle up and prepare yourself for a ride that you may never forget.
Venus, the planet of love, moves into your disciplined sign on Saturday. While this transit is quite favorable for enjoying your relationships and attracting new people into your world, this weekend could get off to a rocky start. Revolutionary Uranus challenges resourceful Venus, creating chaos, surprises or breakthroughs in matters of the heart. Be ready to turn your plans in a radical new direction at a moment’s notice, since hunkering down and trying to stick with the methods of the past is unlikely to work.
Friends and colleagues can add a kick to your personal life with the exuberant Sagittarius Moon’s presence in your 11th House of Groups on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. Just don’t expect others to be especially reliable now since plans can change instantaneously. A strong attraction to someone who isn’t emotionally available could inspire you to try some risky behavior. Carefully consider the consequences first before letting your impulses lead you into a sticky situation.
You should attract plenty of attention if you’re in a position of leadership on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. The adventurous Sagittarius Moon is traveling through your 10th House of Public Responsibility, which puts you in the spotlight while you’re taking care of business. It’s your turn to take the initiative to create relationship magic. It may seem like a risky move, but you’re better off pushing the limits than playing it safe in your pursuit of love.
