Thursday Is Ruled By Jupiter

 

Thursday is a Jupiter day. Here is the day of the week for prosperity, abundance, and good health. Thursday is “Thor’s day.” This Norse god gave the day his name and many of his attributes, including strength and abundance. Some suggestions for Thursday enchantments would include:
•Wearing a regal and royal shade of blue to see how it affects your mood and your magic. Other colors for the day include purple and green.
•Carrying a turquoise tumbled stone in your pocket to draw a little protective and healing energy your way
•Incorporating honeysuckle blossoms and cinquefoil foliage into prosperity charms
•Calling on Thor for abundance, or on the Roman god Jupiter for the ability to peacefully referee a fight
•Adding a few oak leaves—which are sacred to these Thursday gods—to your charms to see how much better your spell works out
•Casting a charm with wheat stalks for prosperity, and calling on Juno Moneta to bring wealth into your life
•Baking up some whole wheat bread and blessing it for abundance. Be sure to thank the gods for your family and your good health.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Thursday, November 13th

We are not easily satisfied today and may take unnecessary risks in the pursuit of pleasure. A dynamic square from the Sun to Jupiter — the planet of bigger, better and more — encourages us to overstep boundaries. Emotions are intensified by a passionate Venus-Pluto alignment while the lively Leo Moon boosts our confidence. The sooner we spot potential over-commitments or over-indulgences, the quicker we can bring the energy back into balance.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re inspired by your acute awareness of all the potential that is in front of you now. You may even believe you can overcome any obstacle you meet on your path. However, your optimism creates complications, especially if you assume that you have more to offer than you actually do. Don’t try to impress others with passionate promises of stellar performance. Focus your intentions on the present moment without worrying about the future; let your actions speak for you and the respect will follow.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may believe that someone’s solution to your problem will cause more trouble than it’s worth. But giant Jupiter is big enough to pull the Sun slightly off center today, so it’s best to stop resisting the inevitable. Sometimes your unwavering determination can inadvertently stand in the way of progress. Something needs to give; don’t get yourself stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Remain open to what others have to say now and demonstrate your willingness to grow from what you learn.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You want nothing more than to be a superhero today, and your enthusiasm makes it all too easy to get involved in something that is bigger than you realize. In fact, current circumstances appear to be more urgent than they actually are now. Your desire to help others motivates you to jump in before considering the consequences. Instead, reevaluate your choices before making commitments that you cannot possibly keep. Ultimately, several minor heartfelt contributions will have more positive impact than trying to do everything all at once.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s easy to overextend your energy now because you are on the positive side of a cycle of expansion and contraction. Although a flood of emotions could unleash a burst of visionary energy, it may be a bit overwhelming to integrate the intensity. Thankfully, you can moderate the speed at which new ideas flow into awareness. However, if you are overconfident, you might take on too much all at once. It’s healthier to sustain the creative stream rather than throwing caution to the wind and riding the rapids.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be thrilled that your recent contributions are finally being noticed now that the Sun shines on lucky Jupiter in your cheerful sign. However, the admiration you receive only continues as long as you do your part. You can’t rest on your past laurels with the Moon illuminating your 1st House of Self. There are many powerful forces at play that you don’t fully understand yet, so it’s better not to confront them prematurely. In the meantime, keep up the hard work even if no one is watching.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could make a choice for all the wrong reasons now if you put your fantasies ahead of the truth. Although you usually consider all the logistics, you’re not immune to making a bad decision. Unfortunately, if you blindly follow your dreams, you may have to go back to the beginning and start all over again. Taking extra time to gather your data permits you to work with a new level of objectivity. You have the potential to influence your future more than you realize today if you exercise your powers of discernment.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are currently motivated to do whatever is necessary when it comes to love or money, even if your chosen path makes your life a lot more complicated. However, you might not have much of a choice now. You must match your deepest convictions with decisive behavior if you want to earn the support of those people who are most important to you. Hold your core values high and let your integrity shine.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your current drive to restore a sense of balance to your life is unrelenting now. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find equilibrium when you are being seduced by so many tempting opportunities. Thankfully, your career path is favored throughout the next several months, even if your ambitions are causing emotional turmoil. Be patient; don’t get discouraged if the harmony you seek seems temporarily elusive. Success is yours if you don’t exceed your limits or limit your potential.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

An irrepressible wave of desire for adventure urges you to put a plan into motion now that your key planet Jupiter is back in the picture. Your current itch to take action is both a strength and weakness, especially if you’re tempted to put your muscle toward an undertaking that is better left undone. If you are unsure of the current opportunity, wait a few days for your exuberance to settle down. Once you have reestablished a healthy perspective, you can decide on your next move without much stress at all.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may actually believe that you know all the intricate details of what is going on in your social world. The good news is that you tend to look on the bright side of things now. Your creative juices are flowing and you should capitalize on them while you can. The bad news is that you are missing the pragmatic lens you usually use to make decisions, making it challenging to sort out your priorities. Your friends will just encourage you onward without the objectivity you really need, so when in doubt rely on your cautionary nature to save the day.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Relationship dynamics can grow so out of hand today that they become the source of emotional distress. Paradoxically, your interactions with others are not necessarily unpleasant. Your nervous system operates best under stress, shifting into survival mode when it is pushed to the brink. The adrenaline kicks in and you get to ride the tidal rush as long as you are careful not to go too fast or too far. Keep communication channels wide open for the best results.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You could have an unrealistic understanding of a current situation that’s based more on your hopes than on the facts. You may attempt to engage in conversations to increase your clarity, but you still might not fully comprehend what’s going on. Unfortunately, you’re not likely to solve this problem by just working harder today. Mellow out and just see where the whole thing takes you before deciding your next step. Sometimes following the path of least resistance is your best option.

Something to Believe In

Something to Believe In

Lucky Jupiter steps in to ease the stressful Uranus-Pluto square

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of uranus square pluto, jupiter, blogs, astrology

 

It’s rough out there. Life can sometimes overwhelm even the most buoyant, resilient soul among us. Even if you’re not going through a personal crisis, the very act of listening to the world news can suck anyone into a pit of sorrow that seems inescapable.

Everyone seems to be fighting, everything seems to be falling apart — and it’s maddening to grapple with some of the darker manifestations the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square leaves in its wake.

For those of you following the timeline behind this rare planetary alignment, there IS good news: it’s almost over. Since 2012 we’ve been experiencing exact hits between revolutionary Uranus in independent but sometimes reckless Aries, to Pluto, the planet of eradication, moving through ambitious, structured Capricorn. Thankfully, we are officially down to the wire now. There are only two more squares to go: December 15, 2014 at 13 degrees, and once more on March 16, 2015 at 15 degrees. After this, the Cardinal signs will begin to breathe again and the world will finally stop throwing a tantrum.

It won’t happen overnight, but it will get calmer. In fact, the astrological patterns we’ll experience between 2017 and 2020 will be peaceful compared to these last few years. Recovery and healing will happen. Believe it.

But that’s a few years away … what about now? What about the next year? What are we supposed to do WHILE the glass houses we all live in are being shattered beyond recognition?

A light in the darkness

We call on Jupiter. The planet of faith, philosophy, and blessings is now in creative, passionate, open-hearted Leo. And with Jupiter’s upcoming trines to Uranus in Aries, he will encourage us to take a risk … in ourselves!

On September 25, 2014, March 3, 2015 and June 22, 2015 we’ll enjoy these beautiful alignments between expansive Jupiter and innovative Uranus. Sure, this combination of planets can increase the surprises in our lives. Since it’s a trine (an easy flowing aspect) however, it appears that those surprises will be ones that encourage and support our lives rather than add to any chaos.

In fact, with the trine in March 2015 close to the final Uranus-Pluto square, I can’t help but wonder if that time will be especially empowering — individually and collectively. April 4, 2015 also holds a Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees of Libra which will likely punctuate the breakdown and chaos we’ve all been enduring on some level. And then guess what? Once the dust settles, we get to connect the dots that rise from the ashes. Even better? We get to connect them on our own terms; shaping brand-new lives that most of us can’t even imagine from where we sit today.

I don’t believe we need to fear that pocket of time ahead in the spring of 2015; I truly feel that it will symbolize a dedicated, fiery reliance in our capacity to take a bold personal risk and go in a new, promising direction.

Yes, I’m looking ahead — looking to the future. It’s my job. And with a natal Moon-Neptune in Sagittarius it inspires me … it keeps me going. I may not know much about a lot of things in this world, but the one thing I do know is this: I NEED something to believe in. Don’t we all?

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 9th

We are slowly escaping from the clutches of restraint as energetic Mars separates from yesterday’s alignment with somber Saturn. The Moon dances through whimsical Gemini to lighten our emotions. Although our senses need stimulation now, our attraction to beauty may lead to self-indulgence as sweet Venus squares excessive Jupiter. However, pleasurable experiences are ours for the asking as long as we exercise a bit of self-discipline.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Today is your day to cultivate a potential romance or strengthen your current one as your feelings are illuminated by your words. Your fantasy life is rich now, which in turn can fuel the fires of romance. However, it all comes back to one critical realization: how you feel about yourself directly influences how you relate to others. This is not about bravado; it’s about your sense of mental and emotional reality. Don’t hold back; although you may take pride in your independence, life is often better when shared.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There are two voices talking to you today. One is encouraging you to dance, to step out beyond your established boundaries and connect with others. Meanwhile, the contrasting voice is telling you not to make any sudden moves and to retreat into your own internal fantasy world where it is safe, even if it’s lonely. Don’t pull back out of fear; seize the moment and reach out to someone special. You won’t know what will happen unless you try.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be buzzing around on the analytical planes of existence, but the real work now is found in the deeper emotional realms. Opinionated Jupiter is filling your head with all kinds of outrageous ideas. Meanwhile, Venus is nudging you to respond to sensitive issues surfacing due to romantic attractions. Unfortunately, clever words are just a distraction today; you might need to stop talking in order to say what you really mean. Operate from your heart, not your head, for the most satisfying results.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

This might be quite a fruitful time if you are in the envious position of developing your creative skills. But just because you have a valid excuse for daydreaming doesn’t mean you are able to avoid your responsibilities without any repercussions. Take care of the most pressing concerns before you wander too far off track. Try to capture the magic rather than letting it capture you.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are consciously seeking more meaning from your relationships now. You could be drawn into emotional confusion in response to someone close to you who is sending mixed signals. However, the incoming data may not be as jumbled as you think. Perhaps it is the receiver that needs calibration and not the transmitter. Scaling back your unrealistic expectations helps you cut through the static. Keeping things simple works best for everyone involved

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

What you say is less important today than how you say it. There’s a world of difference in the various shadings of gray, and now it may be the most subtle nuances that have the greatest impact. Don’t be afraid to invest the time needed to be sure that you’re delivering the exact message you want to reach others. Avoid exaggeration and misrepresentation at all costs. Sticking with the facts is the easiest way to convey your honorable intentions.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may expect so much from your friends today that you’re disappointed with their lackluster performance. However, upon closer analysis, it could be your unrealistic hopes that are the real problem. Although your assumptions might get you into trouble, you can avoid discouragement if you don’t set people up on pedestals. Respecting others for who they truly are rather than what you want them to be is the only way to maintain integrity in relationships.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your optimism is contagious today, inspiring you to see unrealized potential everywhere you look. However, you could take this Pollyanna attitude so far that it creates an awkward situation if you act on every attraction. Thankfully, it’s possible to explore all the amazing scenarios within the privacy of your own imagination. You can always share your feelings in a few days if your enthusiasm persists. The perspective you gain will work to your advantage in the long run.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Steer clear of people who may be deceptive and avoid any substances that alter the fabric of reality. Even just a single drink of your favorite libation can have more influence today than usual because your subconscious world is spilling over into awareness and blurring your objectivity. On the other hand, it’s not wise to shut the door on your imagination, for it is the best way to communicate with your higher self. Take advantage of your current psychic sensitivity and listen carefully for messages from within.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your attempts to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground may be to no avail due to the sometimes magical and oftentimes confusing events of the day. But if you’re too serious and close down your heart, you can miss the magic. However, if you forget that you are an earthly Capricorn, you just might go drifting off into space. You must find that sweet spot between pragmatism and idealism to make the most of this cosmically mystical day.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Boundary issues require your undivided attention today, especially if you find yourself in the middle of a drama that doesn’t really belong to you. But you are attracted to opportunities that can be found in the emotional storm, making it more likely to let down your guard. Vulnerability is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can lead to confusion now unless you have the objectivity to distinguish other people’s dilemmas from yours. Your love for logic comes in handy now more than ever.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Sometimes the waters appear so clear that you Fish can see forever. However, the truth is that even the most pristine waters still distort whatever you gaze upon. Normally, you take this magnification into consideration without even thinking about it. But it’s too easy to forget that nothing is exactly as it seems now. If your vision is larger than life, step back to get a fresh perspective. A reality check and a healthy sense of humor might just save the day.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 9th

Today begins a sequence of seven days — leading up to next Saturday’s Neptune station and shift from reverse to direct in Pisces — when at least one cosmic, discordant alignment per day can send you reeling to the back of the class with a dunce cap on your head. Knowing this in advance is one of the best ways to utilize astrological knowledge and timing to your advantage. The early hours today are a potential blessing since the Moon in Gemini is approaching a supportive, 60-degree link to Jupiter in Leo (8:23AM). Any Moon-Jupiter liaison like this can boost your self-confidence and reinforce the power of positive thinking. However, once the alignment is exact (8:23AM), the Moon turns void and this limbo-like condition remains in effect for 16+ hours until 12:39AM tomorrow. Watch out for overdoing a good thing when Venus squares Jupiter (12:42PM). Later on, like yesterday, you may need to battle against doubts and pessimism since the Sun parallels Saturn (11:33PM). This Sun-Saturn merger is similar to their zodiacal conjunction. Instead of allowing fears to increase, you should study a mentor’s words of wisdom or focus on your philosophy of life — helping you to stay away from worries that can lead to chronic disabilities. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Ludi Plebii


Witchy Comments

November 4

Ludi Plebii

 

Ludi Plebii (Plebian Games) were held from the 4th to the 17th of November to honor Jupiter. The games included chariot racing and entertainment in the Circus Maximus. It is believed that the games were established around 220 B.c. by Gaius Flaminus when he was the censor. The only games that were more important than the Ludi Plebii were the Ludi Romani that were held during September, again in honor of Jupiter.
