Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

Art

Art denotes balance and harmony. The forces behind Art are those that keep us from succumbing to temptation or over-indulgence; steer us away from developing unhealthy addictions or behaviors. The Art driven Spirit avoids extremes, spreads harmony and brings opposing sides together. They find a happy, healthy median between what they want and what they need. Art provides an environment in which most will thrive, and a haven where the injured may heal, reenergize. Through Art success and contentment are found by practicing self-restraint, and using balance to create your own “shelter from the storm.”.

A Rune Tip – Make Your Own Wooden Runes

A Rune Tip – Make Your Own Wooden Runes

Wooden Runes

 

If you have a garden there is every chance you will need to prune a tree now and again. Much as I applaud recycling do not go out and grab a piece of wood hacked down by chainsaw as some man from the council carries out so called maintenance; remember trees are living things and that wood remembers. You will need to ask your chosen the tree for permission prior to cutting. Then with respect remove a suitable branch from somewhere that does not destroy the trees appearance, also remember to take a gift to leave for the birds in thanks to the Goddess.. Cut with care a length that you can then cut into coin size discs , though you only need 8 it is best to cut about 12 as there are always mishaps.

You will need to let the discs dry slowly, if you dry them quickly (on top of, or near the radiator) they will split . When dry you have two choices, you can mark them with their sigils by burning it into the surface with a pyrography tool, or paint it on carefully. The former will need then painting with linseed oil for preservation and the later will need varnishing for durability.

Meaning: The presence of the spear signifies arguments, negative events, and all manner of strife of an upsetting nature. However similar to the ‘Tower’ tarot card if next to a positive rune it could mean the end of an argument or quarrel. If with the rings it means the healing or renewal of a relationship. If there are military connections it could mean promotion. If illness is within the equation it means a speedy and successful recovery.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for November 21 is 20: Overview

20: Overview


November 21st, 2014
hexagram09
Overview is a time for composure and contemplation. As a result of profound introspection, a hidden force reveals itself, and may influence others without their being aware of it. Do not underestimate the power of such a subtle force. Like the wind blowing across the treetops, its presence is perceived through the effect it has on everything it touches.

Shallow wells rarely strike water and shallow minds often come up empty. The ability to keep still and simply observe deepens resolve and attracts good fortune. Discern the difference between what is deep and what is surface within yourself — and you will be able to distinguish between the two in the world as well.

During a period between events, the practice of stillness with awareness is fruitful. Only by observing and absorbing the true nature of things — by apprehending the rhythms and cycles that guide all creation — can we discover the laws that apply to our own individual lives. Examine yourself and the overall situation — not just with the thought of discovering truth, but with the vision of concentrating your personal power.

Additional Information About Today’s Rune, Laguz, courtesy of The Runic Journey

 

laguz : water

Phonetic equivalent: l

DIVINATORY MEANINGS:
emotions, fears, unconscious mind, things hidden, revelation, intuition, counselling
MAGICAL USES:
enhancing psychic abilities, confronting fears, stabilizing mental or emotional disorders, uncovering hidden things
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES:
Njord, Midgard Serpent
ANALYSIS:
When most people think of water, they generally think of its more pleasant associations – peacefulness, love, compassion, intuition, and the emotions in general. However, we must remember that, to the Norse, water most often meant the sea, and the sea was a terrifying, unpredictable place, home of the Midgard serpent and the grave of many sailors. Laguz, then, should be thought of in terms of the lighter and the darker sides of the element of water. It speaks to our primal fears of the dark, the cold, and all those terrifying things hidden deep within our subconscious minds.Like eihwaz, which forced the journeyer to confront his or her mortality, laguz makes us examine the underlying roots of our personality and behavior, and allows us to modify those aspects which are hindering our spiritual development. The understanding and wisdom gained through eihwaz and the runes which followed have prepared the journeyer to face this darker side (represented by laguz) and accept it as an integral part of their selves. Laguz also prepares the person to take on the task of helping others through this self-examination process, allowing them to empathize more strongly and share their own experiences, making it (among other things) the rune of the spiritual counsellor.

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.

If You Were Born Today, November 21……

If You Were Born Today, November 21……

You are a unique mix of playfulness and passion. Although you can light up a room with your sunny personality, you are also determined, deep, and ambitious. You will often deliberate on a problem for some time, and then ignore your analyses and jump into a decision impulsively. Your desires are deep, and you want to experience life on all levels. No one can rightfully label you superficial! You are playful, passionate, dynamic, and inspired. Famous people born today: Goldie Hawn, Bjork, Voltaire, Tina Brown, Marlo Thomas, Jena Malone.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

Pluto adds intensity to your relationships this year, as well as some suspiciousness and emotional drama! With Pluto, you attempt to transcend the ordinary in your life. Venus-Pluto can be exciting, deep, and intense, but the extreme passions it arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. With Pluto, jealousies are directly related to the fear of losing someone. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. In fact, you may be able to take a relationship to a whole other level. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. This aspect can also suggest making a large purchase or payment and having to adjust your spending as a result.

Mars sextile Jupiter in your Solar Return chart infuses the year with enterprising spirit. This is a strong aspect for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. This aspect also favors positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.

You are especially enterprising and courageous in the year ahead, and your sense of timing is better than usual. Relationships are intense and serious, and also growth-oriented. New contacts made this year can be very stimulating intellectually.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sat. November 22

It’s one thing to talk about making changes; it’s another thing to actually set our plans into motion. We have a chance to do both now with the Sun shifting into adventurous Sagittarius at 4:38 am EST and the Moon following at 7:19 am. The cavalier Sagittarius New Moon at 7:32 am encourages taking big risks to break out of monotonous routines. But we might overreach our capabilities as an optimistic Mercury-Jupiter square brings excessive confidence.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

No matter what you imagine now, the week ahead will likely unfold differently than you expect. The Sagittarius New Moon accentuates your 9th House of Future Vision, opening your mind to all the opportunities, but it’s not wise to choose any one path yet. Just be thankful for any progress you make considering all the exciting distractions, even if it seems as if you aren’t gaining on your goals. Ironically, you may look back happily on these days when you realize how much you actually accomplished.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You could make a simple error in judgment if you’re moving too fast today, so take your time when dealing with issues of substance. The philosophical Sagittarius New Moon energizes your 8th House of Deep Sharing, inspiring you to be radically honest in your relationships. However, you may become so fascinated with the big picture that you could leave out a critical detail. Taking a methodical approach when it comes to matters of the heart enables you to cover all your bases now just in case.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your positive attitude has an immediate impact on your most intimate relationships today. But even a partnership that appears stable can be stressed by the independent Sagittarius New Moon emphasizing your 7th House of Others. Perspectives are shifting and your proactive attention helps to revitalize the interpersonal dynamics as long as you don’t try to control the situation. Rather than worrying about what might go wrong now, focus on the potential for success.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may have ambitious expectations about finishing several projects today, but your high hopes might be dashed while the Sagittarius New Moon magnifies your 6th House of Work. Paring back your goals makes sense, since you could exhaust your resources if you take on too much. Breaking up a major project into bite-sized tasks allows you to rise above your current temptation to commit to more than you can deliver. Concentrate on quality not quantity for the best results.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your most innovative ideas carry you far beyond your normal limitations while the inspirational Sagittarius New Moon activates your 5th House of Play. Don’t be afraid to express your bold creativity now, since there’s no logical reason to keep it hidden. Whether you find satisfaction or not, accepting the consequences of your current actions empowers you to move on to the next big thing without restraint. When the world is your playground, anything can happen.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s a brand new day and you can make a fresh start handling family issues while the Sagittarius New Moon rouses your 4th House of Foundations. However, your current direction must be consistent with your long-term goals or you won’t get very far. Honor your heart’s desires, even if they seem totally irrational to others. Trust your gut instincts because the answers you seek arise from your subconscious now and not from logical analysis. Sometimes the most important things cannot be seen.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your schedule may be spinning out of control today because your good intentions led you to make too many promises. The Sagittarius New Moon excites your 3rd House of Distractions, ensuring a hectic schedule even if you cancel an appointment or decline a social invitation. Nevertheless, this can also be an exhilarating time now. There’s no need to worry; the intensity will settle down soon enough. In the meantime, ride the energetic wave and make the most of the momentum while it lasts.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your core beliefs may be called into question as today’s Sagittarius New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Values. Although external events could raise a red flag that triggers your concern, there’s a good chance that others might actually be following your lead now. Remember, no one else can make you feel better about who you are; your self-worth must come from within. Don’t let anyone dim your light; shine, baby, shine.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your life path is continuing to change, and today’s empowering New Moon in your sign is your ticket to the next stage of your continuing personal growth. Opportunities that are presented to you now are really messages that originate in the heart of the cosmos. It may take time to understand the full significance of current events; in the meantime, gratefully receive the gifts that arrive on your doorstep with an open mind and a trusting heart.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A strange turn of events might throw you for a loop today, but you could miss the greater meaning of your experience if you stick to the basic facts. The profound Sagittarius New Moon gives prominence to your 12th House of Fantasy, indicating that your dreams also have something special to teach you now. Life could grow more confusing if you suppress whatever you can’t understand. However, once you accept that there are no straightforward solutions, you will grow in ways that make you wiser and stronger.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your inspiring thoughts are guiding you on an unexpected vision quest today. Thankfully, you possess great potential to see a variety of possibilities that were previously hidden, but a sincere commitment is necessary to make your dreams come true. The forward-thinking Sagittarius New Moon occurs in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, leading you into the future by shining the light of awareness on your brightest hopes. Focus your attention on the road ahead rather than looking in the rear view mirror and reminiscing about the past.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your career objectives are evolving now as the Sagittarius New Moon stimulates your 10th House of Status, giving you a fresh opportunity to set a new professional path. Even if you’re eagerly anticipating the upcoming changes, don’t overreact to current events. Taking things slowly and steadily works to your advantage as you navigate this tricky bend in the road. Don’t become too attached to your present path, since you may need to modify your course as you go.
