Working by the Moon

Working by the Moon

Moon time is the oldest measurement of time used by humans and it accords with our natural rhythms in the lives of men as well as women. In magick we primarily look to the moon for timings.

The waxing or increasing moon from the crescent to the night before the full moon is potent for all forms of attracting magick, for the gradual increase of money, love, happiness or health and for fertility spells. These powers will grow daily as the physical moon size increase to reach their height on the full moon.

The full moon represents a surge of power that can be plugged into for fertility, the consummation of love or commitment, a major money gain or for launching a creative venture. Also, because the full moon is unstable, this day and night is good for initiating change.

The waning moon helps us to let go of what we no longer need or wish for in our lives an can banish pain, sorrow or a destructive influence, a perfect phase of starting diet spells. As the moon decreases in size so the pull that holds negative people or factors in your life likewise weakens.

Getting Out of a Speeding Ticket

Did you hear about the kid who was pulled over for speeding? The cop got out of his car and the young man rolled down his window.
“I’ve been waiting for you all day,” the cop said.
The guy replied, “Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could.”
When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

Feng Shui For Sept. 4 – 'Mallow'

According to Feng Shui the plant most associated with the month of September is the mallow. Its medicinal properties have been extolled since ancient times and are still used today, most especially for relieving the mucous membrane lining the upper respiratory system during a cold.

Today's Tarot Card for September 4th is The Lovers

The Lovers

Wednesday, Sep 4th, 2013








Although it has taken on a strictly romantic revision of meaning in some modern decks, traditionally the Lovers card of Tarot reflected the challenges of choosing a partner. At a crossroads, one cannot take both paths. The images on this card in different decks have varied more than most, because we have had so many ways of looking at sex and relationships across cultures and centuries.

Classically, the energy of this card reminded us of the real challenges posed by romantic relationships, with the protagonist often shown in the act of making an either-or choice. To partake of a higher ideal often requires sacrificing the lesser option. The path of pleasure eventually leads to distraction from spiritual growth. The gratification of the personality eventually gives way to a call from spirit as the soul matures.

Modern decks tend to portray the feeling of romantic love with this card, showing Adam and Eve at the gates of Eden when everything was still perfect. This interpretation portrays humanity before the Fall, and can be thought to imply a different sort of choice — the choice of evolution over perfection, or the choice of personal growth through relationship — instead of a fantasy where everything falls into place perfectly and is taken care of without effort.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, Sept. 4

We’re ready to settle any emotional dramas that took place over the previous days once the Moon slips into rational Virgo at 6:43 am EDT. Thankfully, we’re more likely to contain our outbursts and keep our most extreme feelings quiet. Meanwhile, a restrictive aspect between communicator Mercury and sensible Saturn reminds us to express our individuality without going too far. The helping hand of fate guides us along now if we monitor what we say

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You could blow your top if you are uncertain how to handle today’s intense energy, but it’s crucial to move past your personal needs and think about everyone involved. Your key planet Mars connects with subtle yet powerful forces as it pushes you to take a risk by stepping outside of your usual modes of expression. Fortunately, you have the power to impact others in a positive way now if you choose to take the high road and lead by example.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may not be in the mood to socialize today because you would rather finish your work. Luckily, you can enjoy expressing your creativity while also being practical in your approach. In fact, nearly anything you do now could be turned into a good time. Just don’t become so preoccupied that you miss a chance to partake in a bit of fun with your friends. All work and no play isn’t the healthiest way to live your life.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Sometimes you give the impression you are scattered, but you probably know what you are doing now and why you are doing it. Others observe you starting so many projects today that they assume you could not possibly finish them all. Nevertheless, you might ultimately have the last laugh when all your separate tasks magically fall into place. However, this won’t happen on its own, so persistently work toward your goals throughout the entire day to get the results you want.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You have a lot on your mind now, but might find it more efficient to keep all the loose ends to yourself because they are easier to manage if you don’t tell others what’s going on. Don’t be surprised if something slips out or if people catch wind of the drama you’re trying to hide in the closet. Regardless of your fears, it will probably feel better for all involved once the truth is out.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might be feeling financial pressures that are challenging to ignore today. Nevertheless, you can relieve the tension by addressing the issues head on instead of pretending they don’t exist. Fortunately, there may be a magical solution to your problem, even if you aren’t exactly sure what it is yet. A mystery friend could come to the rescue with exactly the right advice, or a bluebird could fly into your life with just what you need. Remain approachable — and keep your windows open.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although prioritizing your feelings makes sense, denying the inconvenient ones eventually causes trouble. The Moon’s return to your sign today reawakens your need to discriminate which of your desires are most important. But you can take this analytical process to an extreme. Repressed emotions have a way of resurfacing with increased power. Let your mind wander as your moods change, but don’t express every single thought as if it is your final answer. Remain open to change as your perspective continues to shift.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might feel as if someone is sneaking around behind your back today, but your desire to uncover a secret conspirator could create more problems than it solves. Rather than seeking the source of the current tension in your environment, it may be wiser to simply change your attitude about your reality. You are capable of performing social wizardry now. Demonstrate your competence through positive action and watch the external resistance fade away.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your natural attraction to intensity is muted by the emotionally cool Virgo Moon today, but even an unpleasant situation won’t necessarily stop you from talking. Ardent Mars is pushing you to express your heart’s desire now, even if your delivery is constrained by the limitations of the current circumstances. At first, you might not be satisfied with the direction of a conversation, but a passionate exchange with someone you respect can open a door to deeper intimacy.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You should be able to retain your composure today even if someone’s unexpected outburst seems out of place. If you don’t know what to make of the surprising disclosure, there’s a good chance you won’t say anything at all. Unfortunately, your silence could cause you to miss a significant opportunity to further develop a friendship. Take a risk now and share your heartfelt reaction. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It’s tempting to go through the entire day without revealing your emotions. However, keeping cool isn’t a license to be dishonest; just consider what’s important to share and what should be kept to yourself for now. Still, you may approach others in a manner that seems aggressive to them. Fortunately, putting extra effort into vigorous exercise or a long walk today can bring relief by taking the edge off your feelings. You don’t have to be the Rock of Gibraltar all the time.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might not be ready to engage the passion that someone else seems to want from you today. But withdrawing emotionally just increases the drama. Instead of closing down, tell others exactly how you feel, even if you know it’s not what they want to hear. Your carefully worded disclosure can establish safe boundaries while also setting the stage for a deeper connection, leaving everyone feeling better in the long run.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It seems like someone is raining on your parade today, but others could just be trying to help in their own way. Rather than over-personalizing constructive criticism, remain open to the advice you receive. Even if the tone of the message isn’t as loving as you wish, push past your insecurities and figure out how you can improve yourself. There’s an important lesson waiting to be discovered, but it will take courage for you to learn it.
