A small crisis, insecurity if things might work out right, even if brief- is at hand.
The light is not as bright yet, as you had hoped, but the shadows lay behind you.
Don’t give up now. Persevere with faith and patience and ask yourself if your motives are still sincere.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for July 8th is 37: Community

37: Community

Hexagram 37
 
General Meaning: A community or extended family that works is one where healthy interdependence is appreciated and supported. Good direction is essential, but strong kinship is dependent upon every member of the community. Trust, shared responsibilities and good communication are essential. Each member must be encouraged to find his or her appropriate expression, and contribution.

The functional family is a team that symbolizes the ideal of human interdependence, and has long provided a firm foundation for society. The healthy family is a microcosm of society and the native soil in which ethical values take root and grow. Fertilize this soil, and the whole of society benefits.

The power that bonds a tribe is the yin or feminine principle — gentleness and receptivity. Relationships are improved through cultivation of these. Learn to accept both advice and aid from others, and be willing to assume an appropriate role in any group that supports good relating. A good team player is always valuable to others. Increase your value!

Today’s Tarot Card for July 8th is Strength

Strength

This Tarot Deck: Angel Tarot

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Strength card represents Nature which, however wild in its primal form, is tamed by our subtler, finer (feminine, interior) self. The will and passion of our instinctive nature does not need to be broken, but refined and brought to consciousness — so that all levels of Creation, inner and outer, may come into harmony.

The feminine soul-force contains a persuasive power that can nurture and induce cooperation from others, stilling disruptive energies by harmonizing differences in the spirit of collective good will.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 8th

The socially astute Libra Moon encourages us to look before we leap. Nevertheless, we’re so eager to have the thrill of a memorable experience that we may forget to consider the feelings of someone we love. Meanwhile, gentle Venus in tender Cancer opposes domineering Pluto in stern Capricorn, engaging us in a deep emotional conflict that can alter our feelings. This intense combination can result in a power struggle unless we relinquish control.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you are eager to love, you may be too quick to fix whatever is wrong today. Your desire to make everything okay can lead you to miss the best part of a relationship. Rather than immediately taking control, it’s healthier to open your heart as wide as you can and simply feel what’s happening — without doing anything at all. Naturally, you want to show others that you care, but you could create more intimacy now by revealing your vulnerability.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s not easy for you to share your feelings today, since your needs could get lost in all the busyness of the day if you don’t make time to connect with someone at work. Keep in mind that the most important communication probably won’t be written or spoken. Your true message will emanate lovingly from your heart without any expectations. If you can avoid making demands on others, they will be more likely to give you their love and appreciation on their own accord.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Ironically, the smartest way to acknowledge the significance of a current relationship today is to withdraw a little to give the other person some space. This is not the best day to present your demands or to assume that you know what’s ahead. Steer clear of any unnecessary confrontations over who is the boss. Just accept others for who they are and be secure in your own position. Save the heavy processing for another day when the atmosphere is more conducive to constructive dialogue.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Sexy Venus in your sign naturally amplifies your desires, but her opposition to passionate Pluto makes it more difficult to share your feelings. You might believe that you’re trapped and that you won’t be able to find a path to satisfaction. However, this is not the time to give up. Take a risk and share your needs with someone you trust, but don’t blame anyone else for your current predicament. Obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you speak directly from your heart and take full responsibility for your emotions.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may appear bright and cheery to others, yet there could be a challenging story that’s hiding behind your friendly smile. You think that you’re doing the right thing by sharing positive vibes, rather than spreading discouragement or anger. However, you pay a price for withholding what’s important to you, and your suppressed negativity might just find a way to circle around and kick you from behind. Seek healthy ways to express your truth, so you can shine even brighter than before.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You don’t like feeling coerced to express a certain point of view today. Your impulse probably isn’t to fight back, but to resist passively by keeping your thoughts to yourself. Be careful; if you bend under pressure and act in a politically expedient manner, you’ll feel the weight of the circumstances lean on you harder. But you can be strong now and support those who need it, while still going on the record with your own point of view.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your sense of power is not derived from anything you do today; actually, it’s more dependent on what you don’t do. You can make your point most effectively now by withdrawing your support from someone and simply focusing your efforts somewhere else. An open confrontation won’t bring resolution, so avoid going to emotional extremes until you can regain your objectivity.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be feeling pressured by an emotional conflict that has been hovering dangerously at the edge of eruption. But don’t get hooked by someone else’s issues. Remember that your jealousy or envy is likely based on your habitual insecurities and fears. You can overcome the immediate threat by being grateful for the abundance of blessings in your life, instead of worrying that there’s not enough for you to get what you want.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might stay in perpetual motion today to avoid an uncomfortable issue. But it’s not a sensible strategy to distract yourself so you don’t have to admit that something is out of balance in your life. You would be wise to take a bit of quiet time to reconnect with your inner world, even if your schedule is very busy. Once you get in touch with yourself, share your feelings with someone you trust. Your disclosure may be exactly the catalyst you need now to break out of a rut.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A close relationship can be a source of worry today, especially if the balance of power isn’t just right. You don’t want to be controlled by someone else’s agenda. Even if you’re the one who is making the rules, a lack of equality can destabilize a partnership. Don’t make assumptions now about who is in charge; talking it out can help to bring things back into harmony.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may see the weekend ahead as a chance to retreat. But your spiritual quest might need to be put on hold as you grapple with the complexity of a relationship that has grown overly intense. Nevertheless, allowing for some cooling off time could be wiser than pushing your way into an emotional mess that won’t be easy to manage. But this dilemma is not about avoiding crucial issues; rather, it’s all about finding your own center.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Strong passions may blast up to the surface, transforming a casual interaction into an intense emotional battlefield. Or, your profound feelings could lure you into an intricate dance with someone you love. In either case, this isn’t a lighthearted time. Fortunately, you can assure a more positive outcome for everyone involved by changing the rules of the game and making it non-competitive.

Weekend Lunar Love Horoscopes for July 8 – 10

Weekend Love: Lunar Love

by Jeff Jawer

Into the Deep

July 8 – 10

The mood-setting Moon’s presence in partner-oriented Libra adds an air of style and grace on Friday. However, the people-pleasing skills and polite gestures of this sign may mask a simmering discontent that can undermine relationships if it’s not brought out into the open.

Loving Venus, Libra’s ruling planet, opposes deep, dark Pluto, taking us to the depths of desire and into the shadows of self-doubt. We are especially sensitive to how others treat us, anticipating rejection even when we’re being praised. Yet this descent is really an exploration of unexpressed needs. It can serve to provoke necessary change in a current alliance or stimulate adjustments of style, taste and attitude to help in the pursuit of a new partner.

Happily, Friday evening closes with Venus’ favorable 60-degree sextile to generous Jupiter, which can end the day on high notes of hope and optimism. Yet sweeping negative feelings under the carpet is unlikely to work with the Moon in emotionally intense Scorpio on Saturday. This is the sign of “all or nothing” that either pushes partnerships to more meaningful levels of connection or starts building up walls to keep others out.

A key thing to remember is to remain calm and kind if moods turn south. There might even be opportunities to share the most intimate experiences for those unafraid to go deeper. Frivolous activities are less likely to be fulfilling than complex ones in which we are forced to face more serious issues. Intense physical activities and emotionally demanding movies, music and art can be so much more invigorating and inspiring now than keeping things easy, breezy and light.

Friday, July 08, 2011

 
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Today you will lose all self-control. You’ll find it again tomorrow, though — it just rolled under the couch.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You are being followed by a man with an eye patch and a prosthetic limb. He, in turn, is being followed by a large reptile, which is making a ticking sound.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
A very short and hairy person will bother you today. Unfortunately, you will be unable to ignore them, try though you might.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Today is a good day to crash through the underbrush, making loud snorting sounds. Beware of poachers, however.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
In a savage reaction against what you view as New Age Wooly-Mindedness, you will write a best-selling book titled I’m Ok, You’re A Twerp. Later, people will often regard you as having “defined” the current decade.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You will discover an odd amulet in an old curio shop, which is made entirely of holmium and yttrium, and which strongly interferes with the normal functioning of electronics. Best not to play with things like that.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You will be attacked by a man wielding a ham sandwich. Fortunately, you will remember your self-defense lessons, and should be able to drive him off using a bunch of celery.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
More fun with twine, today. Isn’t it great!?
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Despite your best efforts, you will be unable to get your book published. But all you really need to do is change the title! “A Comparative Study of Invertibrate Parasites” is not likely to be published. But “A Bucket Full Of Leeches”? Now that’s another story.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
In an unfortunate turn of events, someone sitting across from you will have a peculiar variant of a bad hair day…a bad nose hair day.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Today you’ll become incensed at the thought that you missed out on all the fun during the 60’s and 70’s, and will change your name to “Sunflower” in protest.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You will develop a passion for Cajun cuisine, and will refuse to eat anything that hasn’t been “blackened”. Your family will draw the line at blackened corn flakes, however.

Happy, Happy Friday! It’s A Thank Goddess It’s Friday Day!

Happy Friday, dear readers! I am sorry I am running late and I will try to keep this short (yeah, right! I can’t keep nothing short, lol!). I got carried away with the front page. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a perfectionist witch, lol! If I am going to do something I want it to look good. Or else why waste your time doing it? Then I had to run out and feed the wildcats. That was a feat in itself. I generally feed them around nine and now they get fed at eleven, ha! They were all over me and they are getting so big. They stretch their arms out and they reach up to my elbows almost. So you really don’t want to miss feeding them. My hubby gets on to me now when I go and sit down with them and they rough house me. One is so sweet. I turned the porch light out the other night and he just curled up beside me. I softly petted him and talked to him in a low whisper and he just purred. You could just feel the bond forming. I thought maybe it was a one time thing, but it wasn’t he has done it ever since. He tries to lay in my lap and that is funny. He has paws hanging out all over the place. I would guess he weighs close to 30 lbs., now. My poor legs are about to break off. I don’t think he would care either. He would have a piece of me to carry around, lol! Enough with that……….

I meant to touch on this yesterday and got carried away with violence. I had some good comments too and I want to responds to some of them. Thank you for your comments, they are deeply appreciated. It is also good to hear someone else’s opinion for a change, thank you again. What I meant to talk about was my posting “The Witches’ Ten Commandments.” I had a couple of responses about this being the first thing we learned as witches. Perhaps it was and perhaps it wasn’t. Remember some witches answer to no one but theirselves. But that is not the point, the point is yes, some witches do learn this right off the bat. There are new witches coming to this site to learn. I posted these “Commandments” for them. I am doing my best to try to make this a site for everyone. A site that will benefit the Elder witch to the new comer. And let me tell you it ain’t easy. But to clear up any confusion, the “Commandments” were post for the new ones to the Craft and perhaps the older ones that just wanted to be refreshed.

You have any ideas for the blog or would like something posted just let me know. I am still moving info from the old group and also adding new never before seen info to the site. So tell me what you think, as always I love to hear from my readers. Till then……

Goddess bless you and yours,

Lady A
