Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for October 17th is The Emperor

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Emperor

The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

Your Daily I Ching Hexagram for October 17th is 17:Following

17: Following


October 17th, 2014
hexagram09
Following brings supreme success. You may not be able to change the direction of the wind, but by frequently adjusting your sails, you can arrive at your destination.

Those who would acquire a following must speak the language of their followers. Those who would be loved must become the envisioned lover of their beloved. Those who would prosper must bend with natural forces and the pressures of society. In matters of principle, stand firm; in matters of style and taste, swim with the current.

In all human affairs, change is constant. In order to stay fresh, old ideas and patterns must continually be discarded in favor of new ones. Only by being adaptable to the demands of the time can the highest good emerge. Only by adjusting to changing circumstances can you prosper. Remain flexible, and you will gain the confidence of those around you. Bend and you shall not break.

Your Daily Tarot Card for October 17th is The Hermit

The Hermit


October 17th, 2014
The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sat., October 18th

We want to place our own brand of creativity onto the day without worrying about the consequences. The lively Leo Moon encourages us to express our feelings with a dramatic flair. Although there’s a lunar trine to fiery Mars in outgoing Sagittarius, we may have a tougher time being spontaneous as the day progresses. Nevertheless, we don’t need to apologize for being honest, especially once the Moon shifts into ethical Virgo at 7:07 pm EDT.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are confident that others will live up to your high expectations today and are quite surprised if they fall short. Your willingness to give someone the benefit of the doubt could backfire unless you maintain objectivity when assessing the facts. Just acknowledge the limitations of available time and resources for all parties involved. Nothing is gained by blowing reality out of proportion. Bigger isn’t always better; good things often come in small packages.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s as if you’re waking up from a deep sleep today. Opening your eyes empowers you to see all the possibilities in front of you, even though you might not be doing anything differently from yesterday. Although your new found enthusiasm inspires you to shake things up, it’s not wise to expect too much change overnight. Give yourself a few more days to explore your options as the fog continues to lift and your clarity of vision improves.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your environment might appear chaotic today and a variety of interruptions easily distracts you from your original plans. Everyone may seem incredibly busy and you are eager to be swept up in the frenzy. However, you could already have more on your plate than you can handle. Prioritizing your commitments early in the day allows you to participate in the fun without being overwhelmed.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your self-confidence is growing today, tempting you to feel invincible. The good news is this upbeat outlook positively impacts your behavior. However, an inflated sense of optimism can lead to trouble. Don’t wait until you’re in over your head with promises you can’t keep. Strategically choosing your commitments sets the tone for success and eliminates obstacles to happiness before they even appear.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may have a bullet-proof plan for the day that includes some serious rest and relaxation. Your infectious enthusiasm can be almost enough to make everything work in your favor. However, in your haste for fun and frivolity, you might have skipped over a few details. In spite of a minor setback, a practical approach, combined with your unrelenting determination, could have you on your way before you know it.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You can’t easily explain your behavior today because your actions come from your heart and not from your head. Your optimism is on the rise even if the current facts don’t necessarily support such a positive picture. However, the good news is that your strong desire for change might be enough of a catalyst to get the ball rolling in the right direction. Follow the momentum; the future is much closer than you think.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Ironically, taking the course of least resistance can draw you out into the spotlight today. It might happen so fast that you’re caught off guard by the attention you receive. The reflective Moon is traveling through your 11th House of Future Goals, preparing you for what’s on the horizon, even if you’re not consciously thinking about it. There’s no reason to overanalyze everything; just keep your dreams alive now so you have the potential of making them come true.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You have all the right stuff to shine like a bright star today. The unflappable Leo Moon is highlighting your 10th House of Status, but you might not be ready to assume your new responsibilities. Nevertheless, you feel exceedingly hopeful about your future, but it still could take time before you are able to realize your dreams. Your smartest strategy now is to talk less and do more. Positive action lights the way for you and those who follow.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Current social circumstances may be more complicated than you prefer, prompting you to set your sights on the future. The Moon’s visit to your 9th House of Big Ideas boosts your confidence and makes you feel as if you can do anything now. Action-hero Mars is journeying through your adventurous sign, motivating you to stretch further to achieve your goals, however unrealistic they appear to others. Nevertheless, if you pace yourself for the long haul, you might be surprised how quickly you reach your destination.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’re tempted to execute a power play in order to gain recognition within your family or community today. Tread lightly, for dramatic tactics can be a dangerous political strategy. Reconsider your motives before doing anything that might detract from your current status or diminish your authority. Once you swing into action, you will need to follow your plan through to the end, so think twice before taking an unnecessary risk

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You aspire to remain objective and emotionally detached, but relationship dynamics get messy now if passion creeps into the picture. Your desire to keep conversations rational might stem from your general distrust of feelings. You prefer to avoid melodramatic meltdowns, but your attempts to sidestep a conflict today only makes matters worse. Muster up the necessary courage to overcome your resistance; facing the truth can set you free.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If you are considering making changes to your daily regimen, the Moon’s monthly visit to your 6th House of Habits is a favorable time for self-improvement. Just make sure you are modifying your behavior for the right reasons. For example, if you go on a diet to impress someone with your weight loss, your plan won’t likely succeed. The best reason for starting something new is to do it for your own well-being. Transformation requires meaningful motivation, personal commitment and self-discipline.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, October 17th

We are out to have a good time as the playful Leo Moon joins up with jolly Jupiter today. The big-hearted Leo energy shines brightly as talkative Mercury hooks up with lovable Venus in friendly Libra. Although everyone seems to get along now, it’s not all fun and games as retrograde Mercury encourages us to suppress our desires. We may feel so vulnerable that we simply deny our negative feelings, hoping the day will slip by without drama.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have an enticing opportunity to spend quality time with people you really like today, but you still need to finish your work before you go traipsing off with your friends. Unfortunately, they can distract you from fulfilling your promises. Thus, it is not a good idea to disrupt your regular routine today. Keep your current dissatisfaction to yourself and mind your responsibilities for now.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You know exactly what you want to accomplish at work today, yet you also must find the time to honor your personal needs as well. You could believe that any deviation from your plan indicates a lack of success, but this line of thought is far from the truth. You might be a bit emotionally disoriented now, so don’t worry if the day unfolds differently than you imagined. Throw all of your preconceived notions out the window and exercise flexibility for a change.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might feel unsettled today because your schedule doesn’t leave much wiggle room for fun and games. You don’t have time to let other people’s troubles hijack your day. Luckily, it’s entirely possible to enjoy yourself while still being emotionally responsive to those you love. Your mental versatility and quick wit enable you to offer your genuine support with just the right words. Trust your heart to tell you when you can gracefully slip away.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s time to reconsider your relationships with close friends or business partners, especially if there are money issues involved. Your desire to iron out the details of a financial arrangement can be complicated by a lack of information or a misunderstanding. Even if you want closure today, it’s wiser to leave things open-ended for now. In the meantime, discussing the various options you have will lead to finding the clarity you seek.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your intentions may be admirable today, but others might misunderstand you no matter how positive you are in your approach. The cosmic culprit is trickster Mercury hooking up with friendly Venus in your 3rd House of Communication. Perhaps people don’t trust your words because your delivery is overly optimistic. Don’t try to convince anyone of your altruistic motives; just maintain your position and your integrity will eventually speak for itself.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The overwhelming uncertainty of your life could undermine your confidence today. Fortunately, you are quite capable of covering your anxiety and hiding your doubts because your key planet Mercury conjuncts gracious Venus in charming Libra. The good news is whatever advantage you may lose to faulty logic now, you gain in charisma and creativity. Fake it till you make it.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Ask precisely for what you want today and you just might receive it as clever Mercury conjuncts your key planet Venus, enabling you to be quite persuasive in your plea. But you may have to risk a little emotional security to be heard, since your attitude is softened by accommodating Venus in your rational sign. Be as specific as possible in your request; the more details you supply now, the better your chances are of success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might misread someone’s intentions today and turn an otherwise insignificant comment into a major drama. Unfortunately, your perspective is so distorted now that it’s challenging to maintain clarity. Blowing things out of proportion only makes things worse. It may be more prudent to wait a day or two before you respond in order to see what happens. Treat every interaction as objectively as possible until you know how it fits into the larger picture.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Too many people requesting too much information from you could give you a colossal headache today. Don’t just make up a story on the spot, for your colleagues will immediately catch on. Honesty is the best policy; share the plain and simple facts to the best of your knowledge and leave it at that. As long as you’re being truthful, you don’t have to know all the answers. Sometimes others just have to figure it out for themselves.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your work plans could fall apart today as you watch the details begin to unravel. Hopefully, you can see this predicament as a positive experience because you are receiving an advanced warning that your ideas need more development. Don’t try to force the issue and glue everything back together. Instead, rethink your strategy before taking corrective action. Believe it or not, facing an obstacle now might be a blessing in disguise.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Someone’s overly dramatic story puts you in an awkward position today if you don’t know how to respond. You want to help, but you’re afraid that if you dig too deeply you might uncover details you wish you didn’t know. However, if you don’t investigate at all, then you won’t have all the facts you need to make a big decision. Prepare for the element of surprise; when the answer finally comes, it may not be what you expect.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Be careful about placing too much trust in your instincts now because a flash of inspiration could steer you in the wrong direction. Although it’s useful to recognize the amazing potential of a current situation, your mind may be playing tricks on you today. Even if you believe you’re seeing the actual path ahead, check out your assumptions with a close friend or partner before doing something you might regret. Asking for another point of view never hurts, especially if you take the advice you receive to heart.

Mercury Retrograde Dos and Don’t s

Mercury Retrograde Dos and Don’t s

Keep moving forward while Mercury moves backward

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of mercury retrograde, astrology

 

There is one golden rule when it comes to Mercury Retrograde phases. Interestingly enough, it’s grammatical. If you can commit this simple tenet to memory then you’ll find that retrograde cycles of Mercury are not only easier to navigate, but also rich with potential for growth and personal development.

Ready class? Here’s the rule. Remember back in grade school when you learned about the prefix “re?” Well, a prefix is placed before the root of a word and this one means “again.” All you need to remember is that during any Mercury Retrograde cycle, if you’re doing something that begins with “re” such as reassess, revise, revisit, reconnect, redo, recall, resay, refresh, you’re right on track. If you’re not then stop immediately or else suffer the Mercury Retrograde migraine!

Here’s a top list of dos and don’ts that will help you navigate the confusion around any Mercury Retrograde phase.

DON’T initiate. DO finish what you’ve started.
No matter how fantastic your new plan may be, hold off on the launch while Mercury is trekking backwards. There’s a high probability that you’re missing crucial information or that whatever you pitch to others isn’t going to sound as phenomenal to them as it does to you. Instead, use Mercury’s Retrograde as a time to take stock of whatever you’ve already got going on and do your best to polish up and finish existing projects.

This certainly holds true for writing projects (and Mercury Retrograde is a perfect time to edit and revise work). However, it also applies to all areas of your life, from work, money and relationships. Usually, it’s best to not start a new job, get married or begin a new financial chapter in your life now. Polish up your resume, plan your wedding or research investments instead.

DON’T purchase big ticket items. DO comparison shop.
You should not purchase any big ticket item such as a car, computer, appliance or even a piece of jewelry during Mercury’s retrograde for several reasons. First, if it has moving or electronic parts, there’s a good chance that you’ll find a glitch. Repairs are fine (and a perfect prefix) on existing equipment … however no one should have to repair a brand new item! In addition, during Mercury retrograde you might not receive the best bargain if you rush to purchase. If you can wait for your item, it’ll be wiser to shop after Mercury is direct. In the meantime, comparison shop and spend more time thinking about what you really want. You might find that you’ve changed your mind completely by the time Mercury turns direct!

DON’T sign contracts, make verbal agreements or life altering decisions. DO renegotiate, mediate and reconsider existing ones.
This might be the most widely known tip about Mercury Retrograde, but it bears clarification. If at all possible, avoid new agreements! Because once you sign the dotted line or give that handshake, you will likely find that a series of events or misunderstandings cause the initial pact to change or fall apart. Instead, this is a good time to consider a renegotiation. Is your lease up for renewal on your apartment? Now is the time to either shop around or do research on a better agreement to propose to your landlord once Mercury turns direct.

Are you considering asking for a raise? Use this cycle to recognize what you are worth but also to reevaluate whether or not you’re offering your best to the company you work for. If you’re not, now is the time to implement revisions. Are you ready to break up with your lover? Even if your mind is made up, you’ll want to wait. A life altering decision implemented under Mercury retrograde has a waffling effect. You might go through a “make up and break up” phase that is exhausting. If you want a clean break and you’re sure, wait until Mercury is direct. There will be no confusion or second guessing!

DON’T hide under a rock and stop living. DO expect delays and snafus.
Preparation and patience are key during Mercury Retrograde cycles. If, for example, you have a trip planned and you notice it’s during a Mercury Retrograde, don’t cancel your plans and stop living! Instead, consider the added potential for mishaps and prepare accordingly. Recheck your baggage to ensure you’ve packed everything vital. Make sure you have all the proper documentation for your trip. Anticipate delays due to the added issue of miscommunication. Roll with it!

In short, Mercury Retrograde cycles are not meant to be the source of endless aggravation. However, if you go against the flow of this cycle you’re likely to experience more stress. Taking pause every now and then allows us to gain a new perspective and realize what we might have missed in the past. Now we get a chance to fix it and become even stronger because of it … thank you Mercury Retrograde!
