‘THINK on THESE THINGS’

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Sensibility is said to be neither good nor evil in itself, but in its application. Sometimes we just “out-sensible” ourselves. In the course of years, we come to see the pattern of the truly sensible. What have we at this moment that really means anything? Does it give us happiness? Did it once seem most impractical? Was it worth fighting for?

The intellectual strives for knowledge and in his absorption leaves the world but hardly leaves a vacancy. The materialistic must have everything at the price of peace, and their possessions decay but never their chaotic souls. And the insecure forfeit the most minute comforts to save for that rainy day. Happiness would have been greater and far more lasting if the fund has been smaller and used as an opportunity fund.

The fine line of sensibility can be most elusive, but it seems to be more clearly seen when we relax and quit shoving to get there. If the place we desire is meant for us, it will come when we learn the way isn’t always sharp and direct and by demand.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – November 7

“Abuse and repression have no place in a traditional family.”

–Haida Gwaii, Traditional Circle of Elders

Traditional families guided by their culture were taught how to live. The were taught about relationships, respect and spirituality. Only since alcohol was introduced to Indians have we seen physical abuse, sexual abuse and verbal abuse. These behaviors have no room in traditional families. The cycle of abuse must be broken during this generation. We do this by asking for help to quit drinking and abusing and return to our traditional culture and spirituality.

Creator, plant inside of me the knowledge of the traditional family.

November 7 – Daily Feast

 

Few children still have the chance to be innocent. They have been made to look like miniature adults, taught to act adult, and abused because of it. We sympathize with abused children and say that is the way the world is, what can we do? It is an easy loophole that lets us go on our way – wishing things were different but doing nothing to make it so. This is why we have so many throwaway children. We have cut loose from our responsibility to pray. Where did we go wrong? We made children competitive and gave them nothing for inner strength. We curled their hair and twisted their minds. They are going to learn it somewhere – so why not from us? Sadly, we haven’t given them what they need because we don’t have it ourselves.

~ Can it be that you and your children will hear that eternal song without a stricken heart? ~

Astronaut McCandless in space

McCandless Orbits in Jetpack

On Feb. 12, 1984, astronaut Bruce McCandless, ventured further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut had ever been. This space first was made possible by a nitrogen jet propelled backpack, previously known at NASA as the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU.

After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger’s payload bay, McCandless went “free-flying” to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space.

Star Forming Region S106
Image Credit: GRANTECAN and IAC 

 

Explanation: Massive star IRS 4 is beginning to spread its wings. Born only about 100,000 years ago, material streaming out from this newborn star has formed the nebula dubbed Sharpless 2-106 Nebula (S106), pictured above. A large disk of dust and gas orbiting Infrared Source 4 (IRS 4), visible in dark red near the image center, gives the nebula an hourglass or butterfly shape. S106 gas near IRS 4 acts as an emission nebula as it emits light after being ionized, while dust far from IRS 4 reflects light from the central star and so acts as a reflection nebula. Detailed inspection of images like the above image has revealed hundreds of low-mass brown dwarf stars lurking in the nebula’s gas. S106 spans about 2 light-years and lies about 2000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus).

Feng Shui Tip of the Day for Nov. 7th

Let’s head to the workplace on ‘Job Action Day.’ First, one or two small bells hung on your office door will encourage great fortunes to enter that same space. Just be sure to hang them on the outside of the doorknob with red ribbon, yarn or thread. Feng Shui says that symbolically the sound of the bell brings prosperity while predicating the prospect that you will hear some good news. Remember to only use small bells, but if your office faces either east or southeast, then you can use wooden or ceramic bells for highest benefit. Simply put, this cure invites good fortune to the workplace. Now, once you’ve put this energetic adjustment into place and get that well deserved promotion or raise, don’t ask for whom the bell tolls. As we know by now, it tolls for thee!

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Nov. 7th is 21: Cutting Through

21: Cutting Through

Hexagram 21

General Meaning: The situation calls for confronting a knotty conflict and cutting through it. Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated — perhaps by a tangle of misunderstandings or outright deceit. Like Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot, assert yourself now and you will meet with good fortune. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. The ability to take corrective measures when they are needed is an essential trait of true leadership.

But those who bring discipline to bear must, above all, be honest — with others, and with themselves. Honesty is the hallmark of the strong and self-confident. The successful person masters the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even correction, must be wielded to protect one’s integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity brings good fortune.

Though your actions be vigorous, they must not be hasty, severe or arbitrary. Be sure to carefully consider all the circumstances. In the case of a serious disruption of relations, you must forgive, but not forget to give a person a chance to make reparations for his mistakes. If some penalty or punishment is necessary, make certain that it fits the crime. When boundaries have become slack and useless, only through the institution of clear and swift correction can their effectiveness be restored.

In situations where serious issues of justice are at stake, keep careful records and do not hesitate to go public with the truth.

Today’s Runes for November 7th is Tyr

Today’s Runes

Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Tyr is the symbol of the warrior. This rune most represents masculine force and potency, and frequently victory in battle. Beware though, for this rune represents directly the Norse god whose name it bears – Tyr stands out in legend for having sacrificed his hand that he might bind Fenrir, a monstrous wolf that threatens to swallow the world. As such, this rune is known to portend a great victory that can be bought with a terrible sacrifice. Tyr is also the god of law, frequently placed in such position above Odin. In this aspect, protection of justice may be had by this rune.

Today’s Tarot Card for Nov. 7th is Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune

This Tarot Deck: Connolly

General Meaning: The central theme of what is traditionally called the Wheel of Fortune card is cyclical change. The Wheel keeps on rolling, churning events in a ceaseless progression of ups and downs, either way freeing us from the past. No one can escape its cyclical action, which can feel somewhat terrifying — no matter whether we are rising or falling. When one is balanced on top there is a moment of crystal clarity, but the only part of the Wheel not going up and down is the hub, which is your eternal Self, the Source of Freedom.

Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another. The cycle of the wheel is its lesson — and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday). If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change. Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!

Daily Horoscopes for Monday, Nov. 7th

The pioneering Aries Moon infuses us with enthusiasm and encourages us to explore unfamiliar places and seek new experiences. We love the excitement of an adrenaline rush. However, warrior Mars opposes nebulous Neptune today, provoking us to fight imaginary enemies, sending us off in the wrong direction or just taking the wind out of our sails. This disorienting combination can also be confusing because our overactive imaginations seem real.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re all dressed up and ready to go with the Moon in your sign. But your key planet Mars is engaged in a tug of war with otherworldly Neptune that can pull you into a parallel universe. You could slip on a metaphysical banana peel, leaving you uncertain about what to do next. Instead of driving faster to reach your destination, admit that you don’t know where you’re going. It makes more sense to relax than to waste your energy.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

There’s no need to work yourself into a state of high anxiety, especially since the conclusions you draw today are likely built upon incorrect assumptions. You cannot trust your senses now because you can’t help projecting your fantasies onto the events you perceive, creating a loss of objectivity. Enjoy the movie your mind is directing, but treat the scenes as a work of fiction rather than a documentary. Your view of reality will be clear again in a few days.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may sound very confident when you share your intentions with your friends or co-workers, but you might actually be covering up your uncertainty. It appears that you’re running out of time, but it’s not wise to make decisions now just to placate others. Avoid finalizing plans today because confusing Neptune can mess up even the simplest agenda or itinerary for the next few days.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You are charged up and raring to show everyone at work what you can do now that the feisty Aries Moon is in your 10th House of Career. You are highly motivated, believing that little will get in your way of success. But you may lose your concentration and fall victim to your own self-doubt, even if it’s not warranted. Ironically, you’ll probably accomplish more today if you don’t try so hard. A gentle but tenacious approach is a smarter one than coming out ready to set the world on fire.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although combative Mars is still in your dramatic sign until Thursday, you may feel as if you’ve lost your fighting edge today. It’s not that your defensive skills are diminished; it’s just that you’re more inclined to engage with others in a much subtler manner now. Your adversary may not even realize that you made a move, but you can be so effective as a spiritual warrior that you win a duel without ever drawing your sword.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s difficult to put your finger on something concrete that’s happening today, yet you know that you’re on to something significant. You can sense that an energetic shift is drawing near, but you’re not quite ready to let go of your current routine yet. Even if you’re champing at the bit, hold on a little longer. Waiting isn’t easy now, but it’s smarter than making the wrong move right out of the gate.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are driven to participate in a group activity today, even if it’s just working on a project as part of a team. But it’s different from your typical need to relate to others. This is more about losing your identity to a larger cause. Put as much energy as you can into your efforts now, for your need to re-establish your individuality will begin to resurface by the end of the week.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your key planet Mars is nearing the end of its visit to your 10th House of Public Responsibility, yet today’s opposition to diffusive Neptune may have you wondering about what comes next. Since you have been extremely focused on work, you may be longing for a bit of downtime. Give yourself permission to dream about going on a retreat; you’ll be given a chance to turn this wish into a reality soon enough after your work is done.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your love of adventure could get the best of you today as you obsess about going on an amazing journey to an exotic destination. Unfortunately, delusional Neptune is tugging on action-hero Mars, now in your 9th House of Big Ideas. It’s healthy to entertain travel fantasies, but don’t be disappointed when you realize that you got carried away by confusing your wishes with reality.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may feel as if you’re on an amusement park ride today — and you don’t like it one bit. You’re not happy wasting valuable time because you have too many things to do and you want both feet planted firmly on the ground. You don’t want someone else controlling your life, even if it’s just for a simple turn on the roller coaster. Nevertheless, practicing flexibility is wiser now than resisting what you cannot change.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Someone may be giving you directions today, but you’re still not sure what you’re supposed to do. Perhaps communication is muddled, or, maybe you have ideas about doing things your way. Unfortunately, you can jeopardize a working relationship unless you go out of your way to empathize with others. If you keep in mind that there are multiple paths to any destination, you won’t get so frustrated when you realize you’ve taken a detour.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be tired of doing the same thing in the exact same way. You want to try a different approach, but you need to make it clear to everyone exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Unfortunately, being bored isn’t the reason that your co-workers want to hear, so it might make more sense to keep your motives to yourself until you know that your new method is successful.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of November 7th

Moods shift with the changing breeze and hearts grow restless this weekend. The Moon in jumpy Gemini invites curiosity and loves to flirt, but settling into a deep place and staying there will not be easy. Still, conversations flow with an overload of information and a willingness to talk to almost anyone.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Moon’s presence in verbal Gemini and your chatty 3rd house encourages you to say whatever comes to mind without thinking first. Luckily, your flirtatious charm can open the way to meeting interesting people this weekend. Yet following up on commitments may be a challenge in this easily distracted sign. Playful companions and a variety of activities are more likely to fulfill your needs than locking yourself into a major project or having to deal with complex feelings.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your sense of self-worth can fluctuate wildly this weekend, which can run you through a gamut of emotions. However, this isn’t the time to settle matters, but is one when it’s best to adapt, adjust and not take yourself or anyone else too seriously. The Moon in the butterfly sign of Gemini is wonderful for keeping things light. Exploring different kinds of people and experiences where no commitment is required should work best.

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

The Moon is hanging out in your flexible sign this weekend, sending your body, mind and heart off in a million different directions this weekend. But even if you’re scattered in your thinking, you should be able to attract attention quite easily. Just keep stress to a minimum by adopting a playful attitude instead of taking things too seriously. Teasing and flirting might not reveal deep feelings, but they can be a delightful source of low risk recreation.

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You could feel like you’re an observer rather than a participant in the social realms this weekend. The emotionally detached Gemini Moon is occupying your 12th House of Privacy, which is not ideal for grabbing anyone’s attention or hanging out in crowds. However, it’s an excellent time for resting and relaxing without the pressure of entertaining others. Spending time alone or with one relatively quiet and undemanding person could be just what the doctor ordered.

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Friends and colleagues stimulate your social life this weekend or make you crazy with their inconsistency. Sudden changes of plans and unexpected shifts of mood make it hard for you to know where you stand. But if you’re able to let go of expectations and roll with the tides, you can have plenty of fun. Meeting someone when you’re part of a group could turn out to be a pleasant surprise.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Be careful about taking on too many responsibilities because you could end up with so many obligations that you don’t have any time left for fun. That would be a shame with the Moon in flirtatious Gemini this weekend, which makes it easier to meet someone new or refresh an ongoing partnership. It’s best, though, to take things lightly because moods shift quickly and commitments can fail due to lack of focus and follow-through. Give yourself permission to let your hair down and have a good time without worrying about tomorrow.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You need to stretch your mind and your legs this weekend by getting away from your usual routine. Exploring new places and ideas is nourishing with the Moon in curious Gemini and your 9th House of Travel and Higher Education. Smart people are especially attractive now and your ability to keep up your end of an interesting conversation makes you more desirable, too. Just keep things on the light side instead of tackling anything too heavy.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may find it hard to get a fix on others this weekend, even if it’s your partner who you know so well. The jittery Gemini Moon shakes up your 8th House of Intimacy with fluctuating feelings and inconsistent individuals. The point is not to make you crazy but to remind you to relax and take a lighter approach to your interactions. This is a fine time to flirt or have an innocent fling but it’s not ideal for addressing more complicated emotional issues.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your personal life is on the move this weekend with the Moon traveling through mobile Gemini and your 7th House of Partners. Don’t expect reliability from even the most stable people since the winds of change will affect everyone. Opening up new topics of discussion in a current relationship or when meeting someone new is bound to be stimulating. Getting agreement on anything important, though, can be difficult, so it’s best not to push on the delicate points.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Don’t let the little things get you down this weekend. The Moon is in flighty Gemini and your 6th House of Details, which can have you scurrying around to put everything in place. It’s better to let go of minor matters, relax and let the less responsible side of your personality take charge. Plans change quickly and moods are inconsistent in spite of your desire for order. Compromising is less stressful than driving yourself crazy trying to control everything.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be in for a great time this weekend with the Moon’s presence in flirtatious Gemini and your 5th House of Romance. This is a perfect time for being playful, but not as useful for dealing with serious personal issues. Let your inner child out to play and you’re almost guaranteed to have a good time. Having fun can be surprisingly sexy as a joyful attitude makes you more desirable to others.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Are you ready for fun at your place this weekend? The friendly Gemini Moon is visiting your domestic 4th house, which is great for entertaining at home. Just don’t make it a formal affair since the sign of the Twins makes us happier in casual environments. Talking through your feelings in private can alleviate some pressure, but don’t expect an immediate solution to any long-term relationship issues now. Laughter is the best medicine for a weary heart.

Cosmic Calendar for November 7th

p worrying about things you cannot control. That’s one of the cosmic messages streaming into humanity as the red planet Mars in Leo forms a dicey opposition to Neptune in Aquarius (4:35AM PST). Not all opposition or polarity aspects are negative, but it is hard to sugar-coat this one and make it sound pleasant and user-friendly. First of all, these Mars-Neptune 180-degree link-ups only happen approximately every two years. Therefore, they are fairly rare and that makes them more potent. Generally speaking, sparks are flying in a wide variety of relationships. The partnerships can be romantic, business-oriented, friendships or simply new contacts. Nonetheless, Mars is bringing strong desires, passions and intensity into the picture while Neptune – striving for bliss and universal peace – is more likely to activate feelings of sacrifice and uncertainty. The combination usually winds up creating a mishmash of chaos in which interactions with others are more probably nebulous than sensitive and calm. You may still try to tweak this Mars-Neptune sky pattern into giving you added charisma and personal magnetism. Being more psychic and imaginative is another way to bypass the more discordant nature of this celestial tug-of-war. The late-evening vibrations are more conducive to experiencing improvement across the board since the Moon is approaching an upbeat, enthusiastic parallel to Jupiter (forming exactly at 1:39AM PST on Tuesday). Note: Start preparing for Neptune and Chiron direct stations on Wednesday November 9 and Thursday November 10 – including the Full Moon also on November 10.
