Your Horoscopes For Thursday, August 29th

It’s frustrating if the current circumstances require us to make a choice because the dualistic Gemini Moon allows us to see both sides of an issue today. We don’t want to limit our options, but the critical Virgo Sun demands that we filter out the excess information. Meanwhile, mental Mercury anxiously aligns with erratic Uranus, making it difficult to trust our own logic because our ongoing analysis keeps leading us to different conclusions.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your spontaneous nature is irrepressible now because your thoughts are moving quickly, inspiring you to show off your intelligence and wit. Unfortunately, someone could resent your success if you draw too much attention. There isn’t anything wrong with wanting to be noticed, but there’s no need to hog the spotlight. Don’t waste time trying to impress others; redirect your mental energy to concentrate on doing the best job you can. Let your brilliance shine through your work.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might become so caught up in wanting to be creative today that you lose track of your real priorities. Fortunately, you don’t have to be quite as productive as you think now. Replenish your energy by doing what feels good to your spirit. In fact, temporarily letting your efficiency slip could give you a chance to recharge your batteries, fueling your next great adventure.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Relationship dynamics are tricky because you don’t have the patience now to follow through with an intense discussion, even if that’s what your partner wants. Although your current avoidance mechanisms are working well with the Moon in your clever sign, sidestepping a difficult conversation only charges the issue with more passion. Thankfully, showing up with a willingness to dig into a tough topic can ultimately lead to the increased intimacy you really crave.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Someone close to you may be blocking your progress, but direct confrontation only increases the resistance today. You are tempted to withdraw and proceed in secret on your own, but there are distinct advantages to working out in the open. Whatever you do now, don’t delay your decision. Make up your mind and live with whatever path you choose. Be kind when you let others know your plans, but don’t waste time giving endless justifications for your choice. You command admiration simply by remaining true to your beliefs.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Making a sensible financial decision today ultimately solidifies your position. You may believe that purchasing beautiful things for those you love is a simple expression of your affection, but others might not care as much as you think they should. Putting on a show with a gift can be a source of temporary enjoyment, but it’s more personal to demonstrate your abundant generosity in non-materialistic ways. A sincere gesture from the heart means more than anything you can buy.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your changing needs add complexity to a current emotional situation, especially if recent experiences get jumbled up with what’s happening now. You may be so entangled in your own thoughts that it’s challenging to be receptive to someone else’s feelings. But letting go of your fear of losing control gives you a chance to share a magical moment with a close friend. Shifting your focus outward increases your compassion and improves your interactions with others.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Although you seem quite talkative today, your chattiness might be part of your strategy to keep something hidden from others. However, your secrets could suddenly be brought out in the open. Rather than protecting yourself or someone else by remaining silent, examine the choices that brought you to the current situation and reassess your motives for being so careful about what you say. In the meantime, relying on your instincts allows you to land gracefully on your feet.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your anger may explode if you think that someone is trying to take something that’s yours. Your hostility might be directed toward a friend who doesn’t appear to have your best interests at heart. Unfortunately, the Moon is traveling through some bumpy territory today, increasing the volatility of your emotions. Before you just blurt out your reactions, take a deep breath and think carefully about what you’re going to say. Overreacting feels cathartic in the moment but could create a situation that’s complicated to untangle. Your message will have more impact if you remain calm, cool and collected.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Other people may seem slightly scattered now that the fickle Gemini Moon is visiting your 7th House of Companions. An inconsistent partner can inadvertently motivate you to concentrate your energy even more. You don’t want to be perceived as a lightweight, so you might overcompensate and act annoyed in order to get your way. Be careful not to fabricate a problem where there is none, for once you stir up trouble, it won’t be so easy to make it go away. Nevertheless, success is more likely if you stay focused on your goals.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have a feeling now that something significant in your life is about to change, prompting you to plot further ahead in order to hold on to what you have. Keep in mind that you will need your physical energy as the shift gets underway, so don’t fritter away your resources on unimportant activities. Ultimately, exercising self-discipline goes a long way toward establishing healthier routines that prepare you for the amazing future ahead.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might be inclined to set off on your own, but you still can benefit from the assistance of a partner now. There may be crucial skills that you lack or, perhaps, you require financial support. Start looking for someone who can provide you with exactly what you need to get your project off the ground. However, caution is advised; don’t let others add more input than is necessary or you could be less than happy with the end results. Setting clear boundaries allows you to collaborate without a loss of independence.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

One of your friends may be trying to hand you responsibilities that shouldn’t really be yours. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about it today without creating more problems. Even if you think you are being treated unfairly, you’re better off to let it go for now. Move through the day with minimum resistance; you’ll have plenty of time later on to settle the score. Taking the high road demonstrates your best self.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 29tu

If you are in need of a 24-hour time-span for plenty of R and R and letting the worries of life slip away, here’s your day. Not only is the Moon in Gemini void for this entire 24-hour time-period, but the Moon’s unsettled nature continues until 4:34AM tomorrow.  As most of the readers of this calendar already know, it is wise to complete odds and ends, and certainly old projects, on a high note under a void-of-course Moon, but refrain from initiating bold, new enterprises. There are several additional, cosmic reasons why you want to refrain from being too aggressive or assertive today as the Sun makes an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with Juno (2:17AM), Mercury opposes Chiron (4:13PM), Venus makes a frictional, 45-degree contact with Ceres (4:42PM), Mercury forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link with its higher-guardian planet revolutionary Uranus (6:01PM) while the Sun makes a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Saturn (10:19PM).  One could tweak both the Mercury-Chiron polarity and the Sun-Saturn 60-degree tie into providing gains on the healing and business fronts, but since the Moon is void and the other alignments are fairly discordant in nature, it is best not to press your luck in trying to make things happen your way. Therefore, the less egocentricity and forcefulness today, so much the better. In a very positive manner, the Moon’s void presence in Gemini can provide you hours of enjoyment with arts, crafts, hobbies, and while playing games or enjoying non-competitive athletics. (Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.)

Current Moon Phase for Aug. 28th is Last Quarter Moon

Last Quarter Moon

(waning/76% illumination)

The time of reaping is at hand. There is a feeling of completion infused into the atmosphere during the Last Quarter Moon. The opportunity opens to recognize how far you’ve come in various parts of your life. This is not a good time for new beginnings, but rather a reflective period suited to evaluating how you have been using your time and what has been accomplished. Issues of authority may arise. This Moon phase supports taking responsibility for actively tying up the loose ends of projects that are already underway.

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

il_fullxfull_238700848

 

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

1. I acknowledge that there is one Goddess in essence, Creatrix of all existences; Her forms are infinite, She manifests Herself in our love, and we are all Her lovers.

2. Treat all beings with reciprocity, for the Goddess lives in them as well as in us.

3. Tolerate other religions and do not compel others to join the circle of the Goddess: the Goddess will draw those to Her who are ready and hear Her call.

4. Worship Her by restoring balance to Her planet.

5. Eat mostly grains, vegetables and fruits, so that there will be enough food for all; when you eat thank the Goddess, the provider of all energy. It is not forbidden to eat animal flesh in moderation, but when you do so you must thank the animal that you eat as well.

6. In the circle of the Goddess create consensus while respecting diversity of opinion. On the path of the Goddess there are many paths.

7. In your home create a sacred space for the Goddess to please Her. Meditate on the Goddess three times a day, at rising, at noon and at sundown.

8. Sexuality is Her sacrament; enjoy this gift and bless those who you share it with love and affection. Remember that overcoming jealousy is the cause of cessation of the cycle of rebirth.

9. Announce the religion of the Goddess to the world through good works, honest words and selfless acts of beauty and love.

To set out on the path of the Goddess, you need only recite the first principle three times, and say three times ‘blessed be’. The Goddess will enter your heart and you will feel her love, and when that happens you are in the circle of the Goddess.

Let’s Talk Witch – Finding Power Center

Sacred spots exist in every country and region, perhaps in your own backyard. All you have to do to locate them is attune your awareness to pick up the earth’s vibrations. As you seek out places that house special energy, pay attention to these key indicators that tell you you’re standing on holy ground:

Body heat increases (without the sun coming out or other environmental causes).

Dowsing rods or pendulums react positively, as if finding a hit.

The place appears repeatedly in your dreams, usually with something magickal or spiritual taking place there.

An emotional sense of peace and tranquility settles over you like a warm blanket.

You get a feeling that you’re not alone (as if the animals, birds, trees, or other living things are trying to communicate with you through motion, sounds, or symbols).

Hairs on your arms rise, as if you’ve been exposed to a current of energy, or you feel a sudden chill.

There are unusually lush displays of plants uncharacteristic of the region; for example, a streak of bright green grass was once called a faery trail, and these usually follow ley lines.

Your totems and power animals appear there regularly.

You experience a sense of timelessness, as if there is only now.

You can also dowse an area to assess its energy. A pendulum will pick up speed and spin enthusiastically in the presence of a ley line or power center. Dowsing rods tip down toward the ground when they connect with this vibrant earth energy. You can even dowse a map to find a sacred site near your home.
