Feng Shui Tip of the Day for Oct. 29

Feng Shui says that the elemental energy associated with the month of October comes from the energies accorded the element of Earth. This same energy or element is what we might call on to create a sense of stability, security and a strong sense of belonging. The earth grounds and roots you. It can balance and center you and keep you connected to the forces that feed you on so many different levels. Earth energies can be located directly in the center of your own space. Any time during this or any other month, whenever you feel a need to slow down and to feel more stability and support, position a yellow flowering plant in the middle of the main floor and immediately feel your feet on firmer terra firma. You also can use fresh yellow flowers to activate the energy of this cure, but a plant that you can nurture and love will breathe those same energies right back to you. Find your center, plant yourself there and get some super supportive stability growing just for you. After all, who deserves stability and support more than you?

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for October 29 is 32:Endurance

32: Endurance

Hexagram 32

General Meaning: Endurance is fostered when inner constancy is coupled with external flexibility. Long-distance runners must adapt readily to changing conditions, while maintaining an inner determination and strength of purpose. Two trees growing near each other adapt to enhance each other’s survival. A strong image of durability is a stable marriage of intimate partners striking a dynamic balance between involvement in the outside world and nourishment in the home.

True endurance is not based on rigidity, for endurance implies movement, not immobilization. Only by adapting to change can we stay in the race; but only by deepening our sense of purpose can we develop the fortitude to win it.

Continuity is achieved through movement, not by keeping still. That which has ceased to grow is close to death. Stay active, but allow yourself time to stay in touch with your innermost thoughts and feelings.

Today’s Runes for October 29 is Wunjo

Today’s Runes

Ice Runes are most commonly used for questions about struggle, conflict, and achievement. Wunjo is the rune of Joy. Since joy is least frequently a solitary emotion, this rune often represents mutual or communal bliss. Wunjo is also seen as a rune of the gods and a rune of perfection, carrying with it the elation that blazes from the creation of a perfect work – perhaps this is the true joy of the gods, that they can create perfection. That aside, this rune does not focus on the struggle for perfection or on our inevitable imperfections, but rather on a job well done and the satisfaction that comes from it.

Today’s Tarot Card for October 29 is The Magician

The Magician

This Tarot Deck: Winged Spirit Tarot

General Meaning: Traditionally, the Magus is one who can demonstrate hands-on magic — as in healing, transformative rituals, alchemical transmutations, charging of talismans and the like. A modern Magus is any person who completes the circuit between heaven and Earth, one who seeks to bring forth the divine ‘gold’ within her or himself.

At the birth of Tarot, even a gifted healer who was not an ordained clergyman was considered to be in league with the Devil! For obvious reasons, the line between fooling the eye with sleight of hand, and charging the world with magical will was not clearly differentiated in the early Tarot cards.

Waite’s image of the Magus as the solitary ritualist communing with the spirits of the elements — with its formal arrangement of symbols and postures — is a token of the freedom we have in modern times to declare our spiritual politics without fear of reprisal. The older cards were never so explicit about what the Magus was doing. It’s best to keep your imagination open with this card. Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by evolutionary forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul.

Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, October 29

Although the cosmic currents aren’t as strong as they were yesterday, we are still riding an optimistic wave of energy that’s rolling in from the uplifting Sagittarius Moon. We aren’t inclined to stop and calculate our odds for success before taking a risk, since the idea of having an adventure is better than doing nothing at all. Fortunately, harmonious lunar aspects later in the day indicate a positive outcome if we maintain a sense of balance.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have a lot going on in your life now, and yet you’re still very enthusiastic about what’s ahead. Even though your current trajectory is leading you into exciting new territory, it’s going to take a while for you to reach your goals. Keep in mind that there’s no time for distracting yourself with unimportant frivolities. Procrastination is tempting, but self-discipline is required if you’re going to deliver what you promised.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might be concerned with what happens next in an existing personal or business relationship. Even if you’re pleased that the everyday routine is functioning smoothly now, you can’t help but still want more. It’s beneficial to reach beyond existing assumptions and limitations. Although there may be good news right around the corner, you must take the initiative and extend yourself to receive it.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It feels as if a world of possibilities is opening up in front of you now and you’re able to get a hint of what your future might be like. However, it may not seem like the vision is really yours because it probably is shared with you by a friend or co-worker. Unfortunately, you could easily miss a significant piece of information if you’re distracted by your own thoughts. Listen carefully and be receptive to what you hear so that you know what steps to take next.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your first reaction to a new opportunity at work could be one of uncertainty because you think that others are in denial about the amount of effort that will be required to complete the job right. You’re tempted to set them straight if you believe that they’re leaving out important details, but this might make you sound more negative than you actually feel. Don’t respond immediately; take time and consider how to speak your truth in a constructive and positive manner.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your straightforward approach can be somewhat disconcerting to someone close to you today. You have a good sense of what you want and could surprise yourself by taking a chance and expressing your feelings. Just remember that your overtures are more likely to succeed if you adopt a more cautious attitude that allows time for processing along the way. It may be challenging to contain your energy now, but you must slow down and create a strong foundation instead of building a castle on shifting sand.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s uncharacteristic of you to become so enthused about your future that you’re tempted to start something new without regard for your regular sense of caution. Although you’re eager to act with spontaneity today, it’s not a smart idea to move ahead until you have all of the facts. The more advanced planning you do now, the better the results.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might believe that you can get away with almost anything now because your air of confidence can clear previously insurmountable obstacles from your path. But your positive attitude won’t fix everything; you aren’t invincible. Don’t waste energy trying to reach unrealistic goals; instead make sure your plans are sensible and that you can complete whatever you start.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

There is a fork in the road that requires you to choose the difficult path or the easier one. At first it seems like a straightforward decision, but the curves ahead obscure your vision. Wherever you want to go today, you have a better chance of getting there if you follow the map. Ultimately, the level of difficulty doesn’t matter. What’s important is taking concrete steps to simplify your life.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You can make an inspiring assessment of what’s happening in your life today with the Moon in your visionary sign. You’re in touch with your needs and can clearly communicate them to others in a concise manner. However, this is not the right time to waste energy on lighthearted frivolities, even if you’re in a good mood and feel ready to party. Instead, concentrate on what’s most significant; a serious approach will take you further now than one based upon humor.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your imagination can reveal the truth today, even if you’re just daydreaming, as the opinionated Sagittarius Moon forms a supportive sextile with your key planet Saturn. But even if you know what’s happening, you may not be ready to tell anyone else yet since the Moon is hiding in your 12th House of Secrets. Keeping your perspective to yourself until tomorrow allows you to refine your thoughts until they’re ready for prime time viewing.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The Moon’s visit to your communal 11th house indicates that social networks are a lifeline to your future as friends and acquaintances encourage you to reach for the stars. However, it’s not really important if you’re able to turn your fantasies into reality today. Either way, it’s exhilarating to feel free enough to allow your thoughts to show you what’s possible tomorrow. Save your practicality for another day; being visionary in your thinking is enough for now.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are ambitiously looking ahead so you can map out the exact details of your strategy. Thankfully, you are thinking beyond the limitations of your current job as you try to figure out your place in the world. But setting your expectations too high could leave you feeling disappointed. Nevertheless, dream big; just put your plan into action one small step at a time.

Cosmic Calendar for Saturday, Octoger 29

uddenly, it is as though the universe has experienced a meltdown or concussion and lost its bearings. Instead of attacking humanity with cosmic guns blazing, it is receding to the sidelines – undoubtedly to refuel and eventually get cracking with more intensity during the first week of November. Right now you have a Saturday where Venus forms a robust parallel to Pluto (8:16AM PDT) – a rather intense alignment on most days. However, this morning it appears to be a boost for antique hunters and collectible aficionados as well as artists of any stripe. Of course, if you fall into the trap of being egocentric and selfish – for whatever reason – this Venus-Pluto encounter can turn against you. While many of yesterday’s potent alignments remain active in the psychic atmosphere, you can also take advantage of the fun-loving, humorous and cheerful essence contained within Sagittarius Moon. Here’s another evening to kick up your feels and enjoy your favorite form of entertainment. If you want to continue working on beloved hobbies or construction projects, positive lunar aspects to Saturn (8:19PM PDT) and Mars (11:04PM PDT) will keep you busy.

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A person wearing a bandana on his head and brandishing a cutlass will dash by you today, saying something that sounds a bit like “Arrrr.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You will snidely snicker at someone today. That’s not going to make you many friends, you know. Instead, you should cheerfully chuckle.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You will need two torches, a sword, leather armor, and a significant amount of courage today. And for heaven’s sake, don’t forget the twine.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Having trouble sticking to that diet, aren’t you? It’s even harder when you see all those enticing commercials for fast food on TV. The trick to dealing with those is to use your imagination – mayonaisse becomes shaving cream, a burger becomes coompressed compost, and everything else is coated with synthetic motor oil. Which, these days, is pretty close to the truth.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Someone you don’t like will make repeated attempts to talk to you today. The best way to handle this is to stuff extremely crunchy food in your mouth during each attempt, and then mumble “What?” while looking at something slightly over their left shoulder.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Between now and the vernal equinox, trust anyone with freckles. After that, trust no one.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You are about to start a band, with friends, which will be called “Rainy Daze”. You will choose that name primarily because one of your group simply doesn’t care for “Clenched Buttocks” as a band name.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Today will mark the first time you’ve ever actually “wrestled” a largish reptile. Although an unexpected experience, you will find it strangely stimulating, and may decide to pursue it as a career.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You will be pestered by a small fluffy animal today. Don’t be taken in by appearances — it’s actually a mutant from outer space.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
While looking through comparative salary figures, who will discover that the job of “Villiage Idiot”, in many metropolitan areas, pays better than that of the mayor. Don’t even consider a career change, though — it’s a lot harder that it sounds.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You’ve always felt, like Emerson, that the unexaminged life is not worth living. There’s no need to use a microscope, however.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Remember: good people are good because they gain wisdom through failure. Happily, there’s every reason to believe you’ll become much better soon!

Meditation Thought for Saturday, October 29

Be A Rock Meditation

Sit quietly with closed eyes. Bring to mind a life form or other aspects of nature, such as a bird, tree, waterfall or rock. Become this thing in your imagination. Feel its presence, sense what its like to be in its body, to live its life. How is it being treated by humans? What does it require to thrive? What wisdom –and warning — does it have for us? Jot down the answers for reflection later on.

Saturday, the day of Saturn, is potent for spells concerned with unfinished business, with endings that lead to beginnings. It is a good day for all slow-moving matters and for accepting limitations, as well as for overcoming obstacles that are long-standing or need careful handling. It can also be used for lifting depression or doubts, meditation, long-term psychic protection locating lost objects (as well as animals and people) and regaining self-control over bad habits or emotions. Saturn can be used to slow down the outward flow of money and or encourage those who owe you favors or money to repay. He will help banish pain and illness and bring acceptance of what cannot be changed.  He represents the constraints of fate, time and space, but can also challenge into opportunity if you are prepared to work hard and persevere.
