Feng Shui Daily Tip of the Day for Nov. 9th

Even though November is the eleventh month of the year, according to our Gregorian calendar, it takes its name from ‘novem’ or the Latin word for the number nine. November was once the ninth month of the year until the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, whereupon Julius Caesar introduced an additional few months. The number nine is considered the single most auspicious and powerful number in Feng Shui. This philosophy says that you should consider each proceeding number as being part of a pathway into increasing knowledge and awareness until you end at the apex of nine, where all celestial forces meet and complete. Therefore, in Feng Shui the number nine means completion to fulfillment and satisfaction. On this ninth day of what was once the ninth month, go ahead and put nine crisp and brand new one dollar bills into a red envelope and place this package under the welcome mat at your home’s front entrance. This will invite many opportunities for Fortune and Luck, as well as completion and satisfaction, to pay you a nice, long visit!

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for November 9th is 25: Innocence

25: Innocence

Hexagram 25

General Meaning: Innocence flows from a natural harmlessness, openness and pure intentions, unsullied by ulterior motives. The state of innocence has less to do with age than attitude; innocence springs from a heart that remains open to joy and wonder. Innocence, when guided by a firm faith in what is right, brings supreme success. Naiveté unanchored by an ability to discern right from wrong, on the other hand, brings misfortune.

The hallmark of innocence is a willingness to treat others with compassion and respect in a natural way. Those who possess a pure heart are best guided by their instincts and intuition. Thinking too much makes it difficult to hear the guidance of the heart, the suggestions of a clear intuition. Stay simple and be wary of cleverness.

Today’s Runes for November 9th is Wunjo

Today’s Runes

Jade Runes are most commonly used for questions about love, friendship, and relationships. 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.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, Nov. 9th

Our attention is drawn to physical experiences when the Moon shifts into tactile Taurus at 2:45 am EST. We need to slow down and engage our senses directly, rather than just rushing ahead to the next activity. But we could easily overindulge today since the Moon hooks up with excessive Jupiter. Meanwhile, a magical biquintile between Jupiter and pleasurable Venus encourages us to throw caution to the wind and rewards our search for satisfaction.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Attending to financial matters is a good idea with the Moon’s presence in your 2nd House of Money, but you could mistakenly put a lot of effort into an unnecessary task if you don’t set clear priorities first. Stopping to consider what is important can turn a frustrating day into one of accomplishment. Concentrate on finishing one meaningful project instead of wasting your time on things that don’t really matter.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon’s return to your sign brings your feelings to the surface and makes your reactions more transparent to others. It’s as if you’re wearing your heart on your sleeve for everyone to see today, whether you want to share your emotions or not. But your friends and co-workers might not understand your process, especially if things are more complicated than you wish. Although it’s tempting, it’s not wise to leave out significant details just because it’s convenient in the moment.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You appear to be as steady as a rock today, but this may be a result of you withholding something that you aren’t ready to reveal. Normally, you’re eager to blurt out whatever you’re thinking, but now you’re likely to remain quiet. It’s okay to wait until you’re sure of your feelings; continue developing your ideas for another day or two before divulging your plans.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The Moon’s move into your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes can solidify your plans today as you put the pieces of your life together in a practical way, rather than entertaining idle fantasies. Don’t be overly concerned if you cannot yet figure out how you will reach your goals. It’s likely that your ideas will continue to make more sense over the next couple of days until a concrete plan materializes from the clouds of your imagination.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re not interested in carefully pussyfooting around the truth today. If you see a direct path to your desired destination, you’re ready to do nearly anything to get there in a speedy manner. Unfortunately, others may not be so practical, requiring you to slow down to explain your plan point by point. Don’t automatically trust a new partnership today because it may be smarter to work by yourself for a while.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re more comfortable sharing your thoughts now that the Moon is in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Nevertheless, it’s easier to talk about the realm of future possibilities rather than what is happening in the present. Stay focused on the horizon; discussing your plans in a very broad sense is more productive today than trying to fill in the details. Waiting until after tomorrow’s Full Moon should improve discussions about more specific issues.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It may be challenging to untangle mixed signals today, especially if you choose the course of least resistance. Although you have a lot of common sense at your disposal now, you still could be too serious about a current situation. Your desire to be practical conflicts with your feelings of optimism, making you eager to move past your concerns so you can truly enjoy the good times ahead. However, it’s still smarter to concentrate on the present moment while taking one step at a time.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re ready to sink deeper into your subconscious as you explore the current possibilities in your life. But you could run into resistance if you are expecting a close friend to participate with you on this metaphysical journey. Others may be quick to express their willingness to join you, but they might withdraw before the energy gets intense. Don’t worry; you’re better off traveling in these imaginative realms by yourself, anyway. Your friends will just have to wait to hear about your adventures when you return.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Routine can bring you an opportunity to think about your physical well-being and do something proactive to improve your health. Making small changes to your diet or exercise program could have positive consequences now as long as you don’t alter too much too fast. Small steps that lead to enduring change are more useful than grandiose gestures that do not last more than a day or two.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’re riding on a highly creative wave today as the Moon moves through your 5th House of Self-Expression. Fortunately, she is in practical Taurus, enabling you to set a sustainable pace in the morning and then stick with it until you finish your tasks. Thankfully, you’ll probably have time for play, too, making this a relatively pleasant day. Nevertheless, the Moon’s conjunction with expansive Jupiter tempts you to take on more than you can complete, so don’t say yes unless you really mean it.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are likely to receive much-needed support from family members and close friends now that the Moon is in your 4th House of Roots. Although their generosity can make your life easier, the assistance might not be what you need — even if others mean well. If you feel confined by someone meddling in your affairs, express your concerns as kindly as possible. Count your blessings; there’s no need to make your life more complicated by offending your allies.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can be swept off your feet by other people’s agendas today because you think they need your help. Unfortunately, you might be left feeling like your assistance wasn’t very useful at all. And on top of that, your own work could remain unfinished. However, if you establish clear boundaries so you can fulfill your responsibilities early in the day, you’ll feel better about jumping in to support someone else.

New Moon Report for Nov. 9th – Neptune Direct

Neptune Direct

Wednesday, November 9

Overt expressions of idealism, compassion, imagination and spirituality come more easily with Neptune’s forward turn after five months in retrograde. Dreams held silently in our hearts may slowly rise to the surface where we can take steps to turn them into reality.

Cosmic Calendar for Wednesday, November 9th

Every month when the Moon unites with giant Jupiter (7:21AM PST), this specific lunar conjunction (right now in earthy Taurus) can represent the highlight of the day as well as the most important cosmic happening. Not so today. Some 3+ hours after this increase in euphoria and positive thinking, far-out Neptune at 29 degrees of Aquarius grabs center stage by ceasing its recent retrograde motion and making a direct station (10:55AM PST). [Neptune remains in forward motion until June 4, 2012 when it once again reverses gears at 4 degrees of Pisces.] While our modern calculations for planetary placements in the zodiac give out a precise time for the pausing in space of Neptune, the reality is that Neptune’s major themes are active all day long. When Neptune is positive in its influence, we are immersed in spiritual insights, revelatory dreams, astounding visions of the future or other dimensions of consciousness – plus marvelous explorations in the fine and graphic arts, music, dance, theater, poetry, film and photography. Neptune can also equate with activity in and around waterways, and regarding oceanic and sea life. On the shadow side, Neptune correlates with addictive behavior, feelings of martyrdom and sacrifice as well as a rising tide of confusion, chaos and uncertainty. The practicality and business-like approach of lunar Taurus goes against the grain of the bulk of Neptunian archetypes. Primary partnerships may receive a boost this evening as Juno in Scorpio makes a supportive, 60-degree rapport with Pluto in Capricorn (10:08PM PST). Be prepared for a new wave of inspiration seeking entrance into the minds of human souls as tomorrow brings a potent Full Moon (12:17PM PST on Thursday) and the direct station of Chiron in Pisces (3:15PM PST on Thursday).

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Good day to appreciate the beauty and wonder of life, and to see how far you can spit. Other people may find that incongrous, but you’ll see the inner truth, and it will set you free.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You will be driven into a panic today by the thought that you will live to see music by Oingo Boingo referred to as “classic” rock. Believe me, that’s not nearly as strange as clothing trends will be, such as the “big elbow” look.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Today you will develop a type of rubber overshoe that looks like dinosaur’s feet. They will become wildly popular, after your appearance on the Letterman show.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Today you will rush around in a tizzy. It will be sort of fun, actually, since the tizzy handles well, and has more than enough power to make an exciting ride.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A friend will ask your advice on a technical matter. If you answer, you’ll be blamed. Pretend you don’t know anything about it.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Today you will receive a gift horse. Unfortunately, it will have a really horrendous case of gingivitis.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
E-coli. It’s what’s for dinner!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Dorothy Parker once said “if you can’t say anything nice, come sit next to me”. Today that will be strangely relevant to your own situation.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You may have to share a hotel room with a business colleague, to save travel expenses. Here’s a tip to keep them from talking all night: bring along a teddy bear, and punch it really hard in the head a few times at bedtime, screaming “Shut up, Mr. Teddy! Shut up!”.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Avoid friends who’ve had sudden personality changes, today. And always watch the skies.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Good time to become involved in a secret plot to overthrow someone or something. Personally, I think your best bet is to start small. You can pick up some tips in “Overthrowing Things For Fun And Profit” by Kwan No, M.D., Ph.D.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You find that after all these years, you are finally beginning to conquer your fears. You will find that oddly frightening.

Daily Motivator for November 9th – Give the value

Give the value

You can’t fully enjoy life if you’re always expecting someone else to live it for you. The value of each experience is directly related to the value you are willing to put into it.

Instead of seeing your efforts, your obligations and your responsibilities as burdens, see them as opportunities. When you feel resentment or frustration brewing, choose to replace those feelings with gratitude and enthusiasm.

The way to truly enjoy life is to continually give your own unique beauty and value to it. The way to truly enjoy life is through your efforts, your commitments, and your authentic creativity.

Every day puts you in a position to give of yourself, so make the most of the opportunity. In every moment there are real, beneficial things you can do to lift your whole world.

To the extent that you do so, life becomes more meaningful, more fulfilling and much more enjoyable. Even the complicated, frustrating, and uncomfortable tasks add immensely to the enjoyment when you remind yourself of the purpose behind them.

Make the effort, do the work, and give the unique value that’s yours to give. Enjoy the matchless satisfaction of living each moment to truly make a difference.

— Ralph Marston

Daily OM for Nov. 9th – The Whole Is Greater

The Whole Is Greater
Women’s Circles

Women’s circles perfectly illustrate the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 


Women’s circles are formal or informal gatherings in the interest of bonding, sharing energy, and creating ritual. The origins of women’s circles are ancient, but their applications are as modern as the women who participate in them. There are no hard and fast rules as to how to form a women’s circle or how to run one. Some circles invent their own agendas, rituals, goals, and ceremonies, while others borrow ideas from sources as far-ranging as Buddhist or Native American cultures. Some circles are open to new members at all times, while others prefer to practice with a set number of members, closing the circle once that number is reached.

In a typical gathering, the women who are present sit in a circle. Generally, for the sake of cohesiveness, one woman is chosen to lead the circle each time. Allowing a different woman to lead each meeting allows for a multi-perspective approach to the process. One circle leader may choose to create and teach a ritual involving using the voice to release negative energy, while at the next meeting another leader may feel inspired to lead a silent meditation. On the other hand, a circle may choose to be more focused over the long term and gather around a particular intention, such as working together to determine a course for healing Mother Earth. When the healing feels complete, the women may choose to stay together with a new focus for their work, or the circle may disband.

At their best, women’s circles perfectly illustrate the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The work that can be accomplished within the loving embrace of our sisters is far more powerful than what we could achieve on our own. If you are not already part of a circle, you may want to start one. Follow your intuition as to the women with whom you’d like to work, reach out to them, and set a date to begin. After that, you can simply allow the circle to create itself. Men need not be forgotten when it comes to circles and they, too, can come together to form their own circles and create strong bonds and healing in a way that is specific to all men.

Meditative Thought of the Day for November 9th

Book & Candle Comments This will give you a higher viewpoint on a difficult situation.  Imagine that your arms have transformed into a pair of wings. You flap your wings and take off, soaring into the air. Looking down at your problem, you see it in a whole new light. Set against a vast panorama, it appears far smaller and less significant than before. You can also see other aspects of the problem that you were previously blind to – other people’s roles, different viewpoints, the causes of the situation, even solutions. With the benefit of these new insights, you return to Earth, ready to face your problem afresh.

Magickal Graphics



6 drops of Patchouli oil

6 drops of Sandalwood oil

6 drops of Rose oil

6 drops of Clove oil

6 drops of Nutmeg oil

6 drops of Olive oil

Wear as a perfume whenever you’ll be in the presence of the person you’re trying to attract.

Be careful, this stuff is really potent. And don’t be surprised if you find others eyeing you as well.

I find it’s pretty effective for getting a man’s attention. I would probably suggest substituting amber oil for the rose oil in order to attract a woman.



To make an oil that will help attract the attention of others, mix together:

 twenty drops of synthetic musk

two drops of jasmine

one drop of ylang ylang

In a small bottle and leave where the full moonlight can strike it for three nights. Be sure to bring it inside before the Sun can find it.

Meanwhile, leave a rose petal, a small piece of crystal quartz, and 1/8teaspoon of powdered cinnamon in a place where the Sun can see them, making sure to move them before moonlight can strike them.

On the forth day, mix together the two sets of ingredients and leave in a dark
place. Wear when you wish to draw love and admiration to yourself.

It will also enable your employers to see what they love about your work for them.



2 part carnation petals

1 part Anise seed

1 part cinnamon

Use 2 tablespoons of this mixture to 2 oz. oil. add a piece of Galangal root to each bottle.

I would put some in your bath before any confrontations.

Also use as a perfume on your pulse points.

Carry a Galangal root, John the Conqueror root.
With snake root or Indian tobacco in a small bag.
Anointed in the oil and to give added punch van van oil.
I also would carry a horse chestnut dressed in van van oil.



To Induce You will need:

1/2 oz carrier oil

12 drops bergamot

3 drops lavender

3 drops cypress

Directions: In 1/2 oz of carrier oil (I used apricot kernel, sweet almond would also be good), mix 12 drops of bergamot, 3 drops lavender and 3 drops cypress.

To increase the benefits of your sleep, apply a few drops behind your ears,
spreading the excess out over your jawline.

Do this immediately before bed.

This is a good oil blend for people who have trouble falling asleep at night,
or for people who sleep restlessly.



* 1 dram Patchouli Oil

* 1 dram each of Frankincense Oil & Myrrh Oil

* 1 tsp. broken pieces of Mandrake Root

 * 3 heaping tsp. coarse Sea Salt

Simmer over a low-heat in an enamel pan. Let cool. Pour into small bottles and charge.
