Get A Jump on Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 3rd

by Rick Levine

 

The cosmos offers us a chance to synthesize recent experiences as the Moon flies into conceptual Aquarius at 8:20 am EDT. We finally have enough time to breathe deeply and consider the larger context of our lives. Meanwhile, chatty Mercury forms a cooperative sextile with giant Jupiter, turning the simplest conversations into philosophical discussions. Although communication is essential, we can wait to put our words into action. No hurry, no worry.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re relieved by the realization that the potential for positive change outweighs your fear of the unknown. You still don’t know what to expect even if you’re busy anticipating all the best-case scenarios. Events continue to unfold rapidly and you believe you must respond to them right away. Nevertheless, you have more time than you think, so give yourself permission now to experience the excitement without trying to figure everything out. Ironically, you will find your answers about the future by living in the present.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re naturally more comfortable when you know exactly where every twist and turn will take you on the road ahead. Unfortunately, you’re likely to grow anxious if you’re unable to describe all the changes occurring in your life now. Luckily, you have a fantastic opportunity to envision your ideal world without the pressure of having to make your visions come true today. Temporarily set your most concrete goals aside and let your imagination guide you gently into the future. You can’t achieve it until you dream it.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You can see farther into the distance today, but your perceptions of reality might not be as accurate as you think. Your enthusiasm is projected onto your surroundings while mischievous Mercury connects with jovial Jupiter, prompting you to imagine positive outcomes to complicated situations before you have all the facts in place. Be sure to explore the shadows, since trouble will surely surface later on if you ignore the subtleties. Investigate all the angles and then head in the direction of your chosen future. Making the most informed decisions possible vastly improves your chances for success.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Coordinating your natural desire for emotional security with your current career goals might require additional analysis. At first, you may resist risking your comfort in order to make progress at work. But feeling vulnerable isn’t as frightening as the thought of missing a rare opportunity to get ahead. Even if the circumstances aren’t as ideal as you wish, you still won’t be able to forgive yourself if you don’t give your dreams your best shot now. No apologies, no regrets.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your social network is in the midst of change, yet letting go of unhealthy relationships isn’t as messy as you might expect. Your interests are shifting and a new acquaintance may reflect your current dreams better than an old one. Rather than fearfully clinging to the past, embrace the exciting potential that’s around the next bend. Just remember, it’s not an all-or-nothing proposition; you can make improvements without necessarily upsetting those who have your happiness at heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your growing excitement over an innovative idea may cause you to lose track of your feelings today as cerebral Mercury aligns with ingenious Uranus and opportunistic Jupiter. Your current emotional detachment helps you think more clearly while visualizing your future, but over-analyzing a decision can also alienate you from your heart. Pay attention to the facts, but don’t forget to delve deeper to uncover your true desires. Sometimes the most obvious choice isn’t the one that leads to happiness.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your playful mood frees you from the weighty issues that have been lingering on your mind. The quirky Aquarius Moon is drifting through your 5th House of Creativity, intensifying your desire to express yourself more freely. Enjoy your newly found intellectual independence and explore all the different methods you can use to communicate your enthusiasm. However, without a touch of self-restraint you could easily end up wasting time on one unrealistic idea after another, leading you around in circles. Just remember that applying a small dose of caution greatly improves your game.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Relationships with friends and relatives are in the process of transformation because your personal freedom is exceptionally valuable to you now and you’re not likely to compromise it away. Although it’s not in your best interest to walk out on your obligations; you just don’t want anyone to assume that you’ll simply show up on demand. If you want others to respect your boundaries today, you must be willing to state them as clearly as possible. Thankfully, you can express your needs now without triggering any awkward feelings if you’re willing to be transparent.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Others a

re pushing your buttons, requiring you to take a stand today and announce your position. Luckily, people are more likely to truly hear your message while philosophical Jupiter plays wing man to communicator Mercury in your 7th House of Partners. One of your greatest strengths is that you almost always see the glass half full rather than half empty. Your overall attitude is more crucial than the choices you must make now, so don’t diminish your power by suddenly harboring self-doubt. Ironically, it was Helen Keller who said, “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your unwavering courage inspires people to support you on your path to success. Your unwillingness to acknowledge the possibility of defeat has more of a positive impact on others now than you realize, making it nearly impossible for anyone to spread negativity in your presence. But don’t let your optimism blind you to the facts or your allies will lose faith in your ability to make sensible judgments. Luckily, you can be confident in your convictions without slipping into denial if you put the truth above everything else.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re not in the market for approval from others now; you only seek their acknowledgment and respect. Fortunately, the evocative Moon’s visit to your sign empowers you with clarity and encourages you to share your feelings. There’s no reason to worry about someone’s possible reaction today, for the truth of your words will stand on their own merit. Be genuine and speak from your heart; you will be accepted for your unique contribution by those who matter most.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may believe your dreams are slipping away today as the reflective Moon disappears into your 12th House of Secrets. However, the possibility of turning your unfulfilled desires into reality is still growing, even if you’re not aware of it in the present moment. Nevertheless, you might indulge yourself with a meandering detour through your favorite fantasies. Letting go of your hopes is not the right solution; use your fertile imagination to create the future you want, instead.

Must Dos for Wednesdays

Moon & Witch Comments & Graphics
Must Dos for Wednesdays

Be bold and daring today! Expand your knowledge of the Craft by working with the planetary energies of Mercury on this multifaceted day of the week. Consider the Greco-Roman gods Mercury and Hermes and all of the many lessons they have for you. Embrace change and movement, and work on your communication techniques. Conjure up a little good luck for yourself with that Mercury dime spell. Call on Athena to inspire you to try magickal arts and crafts and to be more creative in your own spellwork and witchery.

Meditate on Odin and see what you can discover about him. I wonder what sort of fabulous and fascinating magickal wisdom you will uncover? Odin is a shaman, after all; he may appear in many guises and faces. I guarantee that he will make you laugh at yourself before he is through with you, but you will learn. It’s up to you what you do with that knowledge. Will you let it shapeshift into wisdom?

Wednesday is the wild and wily day of the week, so try to go with the flow; don’t fight the quirky energies of the day. Most importantly, follow your heart, and always keep a good sense of humor, because of Wednesdays you will really need it.

Your Weekly Karma Forecast for June 28 through July 4

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

6/29 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (unique):

This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different; shake up your routine. Seek out diversions; try something new! Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy will be stimulating, unusual and probably short-lived. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

7/1 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (truth):

This is an extremely powerful energy that makes you very mentally “present” to the fact that both your values and your truth are shifting. You can connect to material abundance. This is usually a pleasant shift because it is about expanding your sense of authentic beauty, as in nature, and the interrelatedness of all living things. There is an energy of enthusiasm around new or growing relationships which attracts more positive energy. This is the best time to create and “expect miracles”!

7/1 ~ Sun (authenticity) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):

This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically. Take time to meditate and be still, quiet and alone. You may feel compelled to do things today that have no direct benefit for you; finding satisfaction in giving. Just be sure to ‘help those who help themselves’. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come thru to you.

7/2 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):

This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas; allow spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

7/3 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You’re focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.

Your Daily Charm for June 26th is The Caduceus

Your Daily Charm for Today

The Caduceus

Today’s Meaning:
You will find you have within you the ability to resolve all conflicts and disagreements with regard to this aspect. You will find an eloquence you did not realize before.

General Description:
The staff of Mercury was given to him by Apollo in exchange for the lyre. The rod was endowed with the remarkable power of deciding all quarrels and bestowing wonderful eloquence upon its possessor. Mercury proved this when he saw two serpents fighting. Placing the rod between them and using his eloquence he reconciled the serpents, who then embraced each other, and becoming attatched to the rod formed the caduceus. The pine cone is credited with health giving power, and the wings symbolize speed and the flight of thoughts between friends. This ancient talisman was supposed to be a charm fo prospetity, rendering its possessor healthy, wealthy and wise.

DAILY MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR WEDNESDAY

Egyptian Comments & Graphics

DAILY MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR WEDNESDAY

 

To the Romans, this day was called Dies Mercurii, or “Mercury’s day” Mercury was a popular character in the Roman pantheon. A messenger of the gods, he presided over commerce, trade, and anything that required skill or dexterity. The Celts also worshiped Mercury and eventually equated him with the Norse god Odin (some spelling variations on this name include Wotan, Wodin, and Wodan). In Norse mythologies, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetry and music. Interestingly enough, both Odin and Mercury were regarded as psychopomps, or the leaders of souls, in their individual mythologies.

Odin, one of the main gods in Norse mythology, was constantly seeking wisdom. He traveled the world in disguise as a one-eyed man with a long gray beard, wearing an old, beat-up hat and carrying a staff or a spear (which brings to my mind images of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings). In the Old English language, this day of Mercury evolved into Wodnes daeg, “Woden’s day,” or Wednesday.

Wednesday carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits included good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickiness, and thievery. And don’t forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athena’s contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.

The Power Of Nature ~ GP1Wednesday Is Ruled By Mercury

Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:

Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange

Carrying a multipurpose agate with you and tapping into its various charms

Working with magical plants such as the fern for protection. This plant will also boost the power of any other magical plants with which it is arranged.

Incorporating lavender into charms and spells for transformation

Using the charming scent of lily of the valley to improve your memory, or working with the aspen tree for communication

Calling on Athena, patron of arts and crafts, for inspiration for a new project

Fanning out a Tarot spell to increase you creativity

Calling on Hermes on a Wednesday night to bring movement and good luck into your life
