I hate to post and run but…….


I hate to post and run but…….I have got to take a friend to the dentist. After or before, probably before, I am going to vote. I don’t know what is on your ballot today. But one thing I promised you and I am worse than an elephant about forgetting. My promise to you was when Election time rolled around, I was going to remind you of what a lovely mess our government was back in October. Remember? I know you know what I am implying. Vote with your head. Stop to think about what a mess things were. Remember people not knowing where their next meal was coming from or how to keep a roof over their kids head. Whatever you do get out and vote and please vote with your head.

Now I have one thing to ask you. I am currently brain dead (I know it’s a first for me, lol!). But anyway, what kind of items would like to see raffled off? I know the holidays are getting ready to hit us. I thought it would be nice to put up something that you might to want to give as a gift. If you tell me that is what you would like to do, I will cut the December raffle short. That way whatever the item is will get to you in time for Yule or Christmas.

Anyway, I have got to run for now. Have a beautiful Tuesday!

Luv & Hugs,
Lady A

Feng Shui News for Nov. 5th – ‘Gunpowder Day’ & ‘Guy Fawkes Day’

It’s getting hot in here as we take a look at ‘Gunpowder Day’ and ‘Guy Fawkes Day.’ The Gunpowder Conspirators were a group that in 1605 plotted to blow up the British Houses of Parliament while the King of England and his supporters were in the buildings. They only thing that got blown was their plan, as it was foiled right as Fawkes was about to ignite the gunpowder. People in Great Britain still celebrate this day with bonfires and fireworks. Feng Shui says hanging a string of faux fireworks in the ‘Fame’ (fire element) area of the main floor will ignite your own ambitions and bring you a fair amount of recognition and rewards. This time around, it will be your reputation that will blow up.

Today’ Tarot Card for Nov. 5th – Strength


Tuesday, Nov 5th, 2013








What has traditionally been known as the Strength card represents Nature which, however wild in its primal form, is tamed by our subtler, finer (feminine, interior) self. The will and passion of our instinctive nature does not need to be broken, but refined and brought to consciousness — so that all levels of Creation, inner and outer, may come into harmony.

The feminine soul-force contains a persuasive power that can nurture and induce cooperation from others, stilling disruptive energies by harmonizing differences in the spirit of collective good will.


Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 5th

We might have plans to do something fun, but obligations take precedence over pleasure today. The cavalier Sagittarius Moon stimulates adventurous fantasies and lofty dreams, but we’re anchored by circumstances beyond our control. However, upon closer examination it’s apparent that we made the choices that have led us here. Oddly enough, we begin to look forward to fulfilling our commitments as desirous Venus enters responsible Capricorn.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your emotions are flying all over the place today as the evocative Moon’s visit to exuberant Sagittarius accentuates your impulsive reactions to whatever is happening. However, your moods are inconsistent now and others could tire of your changing needs. Don’t push your luck. You might just get what you want if you know when to quit. But if you expect too much, you may be left unsatisfied. Ultimately, the choice is yours.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be more concerned with fulfilling obligations to others than enjoying yourself today. Your key planet Venus enters dutiful Capricorn, requiring you to set aside your desires for immediate pleasure. Fortunately, it’s easy to postpone gratification if you believe that waiting will increase your overall stability. Make your decisions carefully now; the more time you spend considering your options, the better the outcome.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You don’t want to do what everyone currently expects of you, but this isn’t an ideal time to express your true feelings and rebel against the status quo. You might think you can just skip an activity that you prefer to avoid now, but your retreat won’t go unnoticed and could create unnecessary ripples. Save your great escape for another day; just be responsible and hold up your end of the bargain today if you want others to do the same.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your resistance may be futile as you’re dragged out of your shell today no matter what you do. Although you’re tempted to go to great lengths in order to protect yourself from being judged, you’re better off softening your defenses and interacting lovingly with your friends and family. Keeping things real is more important now than avoiding your emotions just because they are inconvenient or scary. Open your heart and let love in.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your inspirational perspective is contagious today and your positive attitude is appreciated by your coworkers. Nevertheless, there is a mysterious brew of complex emotions in your world that could compete with one another. Don’t be too quick to choose sides now or your rigidity will only add to the chaos. Make a choice if you must, but avoid attaching yourself to a specific outcome. Ultimately, happiness comes from within.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Steering clear of authorities might be the key to making this quite a memorable day. However, you could inadvertently say or do the wrong thing, thus provoking an unnecessary battle for control. If you are sincere in your intentions, you should be able to avoid getting into trouble with someone who is in charge. Forget about showing everyone how powerful you are today; instead simply focus on creating harmony.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Apparently you’re not in control now, even if you thought you were running the show. The fact is that someone else may be the real authority, even if he or she isn’t around to oversee things. Nevertheless, it’s up to you to take charge of your own life. Thankfully, self-discipline is easier for you when your key planet Venus is moving through calculating Capricorn. Carefully observe what’s happening, but don’t try to alter the dynamics.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You know that you can do everything that’s required of you today, even if your confidence is waning a bit. Ultimately, you come through for one good reason: you know that someone is counting on you. You’re highly motivated to push up against your limits and exceed everyone’s expectations. Go ahead and show others exactly what you can do, but don’t judge anyone else too harshly just because you are accomplishing so much.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Managing your self-esteem may be a real challenge for you these days. Luckily, there are some fairly straightforward things you can do to keep yourself on the right track now and eliminating unnecessary activities should be at the very top of your list. It’s far better to have fewer tasks to do and more time to get them done. Be smart and create realistic goals to set yourself up for success.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although you could have your fair share of impulsive moments today, nothing is gained by letting your need for instant gratification run away with your day. Responsibilities are weighing heavily on your shoulders and as much as you can support the weight, you’re also watching for quick escapes throughout the day. Your commitment to doing the right thing grows stronger now that sweet Venus is visiting your practical sign. Thankfully, taking the higher road is enough to get you through these days without creating unnecessary trouble.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You don’t want to be seen as the responsible one today. And although you would prefer just being part of the crowd, you might begrudgingly take the lead so you can make sure that everyone has as good a day as possible. You are quite deliberate in your overall approach now, even if you appear to be footloose and fancy-free. Pay attention to how you are being perceived because your strategy could backfire if it looks like you aren’t being serious enough.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The idea of being a member of a larger group is quite appealing to you now that resourceful Venus is entering your 11th House of Friends. You seek stability and meaning from your interactions with others, but your need to express your own beliefs could create problems with those who disagree with you. Minimize conflict by temporarily downplaying your personal proclivities. Make today about team spirit and not your individual needs.

Earn the love you deserve while Venus is in Capricorn

Tarotcom Staff    Tarotcom Staff on the topics of venus, love, capricorn, astrology

Get ready for a shift in your love life! Love planet Venus has been in adventurous Sagittarius since the beginning of October, a time when most of us felt more confident, attracted more suitors and experienced an uptake in our social lives.

Now, however, it’s time to get serious. Venus, the planet of love, pleasure and beauty, moves into earthy Capricorn on November 5, 2013. This transit encourages sweet Venus to take a hard stance on romance, and it becomes a time when love truly must be earned.

Venus in Capricorn has a mature approach to relationships. Couples will spend more time now working through their problems and making commitments to one another and to shared goals. This is not the time for lovers to slack off!

If you’re single, this doesn’t sound as much fun as flirty Venus in Sagittarius, does it? But the good news is that if you meet someone now, it won’t be a flighty flirt that’s over as soon as it begins. With Venus in Capricorn, we’re playing for keeps.

In addition to its effect on love and relationships, Venus in Capricorn has the same serious effect on all things relating to beauty. You may find yourself dressing less flashy now, or putting your hair in a more subdued style. If you’re decorating your home, you may also go for a more conservative look now.

Also, if you’re interested in pursuing any artistic endeavors, now is a great time to get started. Capricorn will give creative Venus the stick-to-it-iveness to start art projects and see them through to the finish.

Capricorn isn’t flashy — it’s about getting real and building foundations for the future. So take advantage of this caring Capricorn energy and use it to achieve your relationship goals! Put in the hard work now so you can earn the love you deserve.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 5th

Are you sensing a strong shift about to occur and don’t know what it is? You may be tuning into the annual Sun-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio that occurs on Wednesday morning as well as Jupiter’s virtual station and reversal in Cancer that happens on Wednesday night. With the two largest planets in our solar system — Jupiter and Saturn — making big news on Wednesday, many inspired members of humanity are already picking up on the potent vibrations ahead of time.  Before confronting whatever Jupiter and Saturn have to offer you — particularly on the business and professional fronts — it is wise to deal with more immediate matters as Venus enters Capricorn (12:44AM this morning). This is an unusual Venus entry into a new zodiacal sign because Venus will remain in Capricorn until March 5, 2014. Normally, Venus spends 3 to 4 weeks in a sign — not 4 months. However, Venus is poised to slow down in its forward motion in December, stopping and going into reverse on December 21, 2013 and staying retrograde until January 31, 2014. Venus in the tenth sign of the zodiac can provide some benefits for traditional approaches to making business deals provide rewards over the long haul — although expecting quick results is foolish. Energizing professional aims, as you keep climbing your personal mountain toward worldly achievements, is a key theme of Venus spending 4 months in earthy, industrious Capricorn.  Keep your mind open to flashes of genius as the Moon in Sagittarius makes a harmonious trine of 120-degrees to Uranus in Aries (3:39AM). Be more cautious and careful starting at 8:49AM when the Moon squares off with Mars — starting a nearly 29-hour void lunar uncertainty zone in Sagittarius that lasts until 1:45PM tomorrow. Stay as mellow as possible during this long lunar time-span, enjoying plenty of R and R and not trying to push your personal agenda or conduct arm-twisting maneuvers with colleagues or loved ones.

Invocation to Herne I

Hail, Lord of the Forest!
The deer are gathering
In these your deepest woods,
Great stag with antlers wide and proud,
Soft-eyed doe for whom
The warriors clash their horns,
Delicate fawn mottled as the underbrush.
The hares are finding
Their winter burrows,
The squirrels collecting
Their hoards of fodder,
The pheasant and quail
Readying themselves for the season
Of death on many sides.
You who understands
The desperate chase,
Heart pounding, feet pounding,
Knowing well that death
Is your destiny,
Help us to make peace
With the oncoming challenge
And to know that it is only
One of our many moments
In the cycle of life.

Horned One, Lover, Son,
Leaper in the corn
Deep in the Mother
Die and be reborn.

(As the last sound of the chant dies away, all bow to the altar and leave room in silence.)

Emotions begin to stir coupled with recognizing that the new beginnings you are making must also increase personal security to be worthwhile over the long haul. This is a time when it’s appropriate to get in touch with your gut instincts and begin to guide your life more deliberately, with an awareness of using your “sixth sense” as well as your enthusiasm. Obstacles may emerge that require you to reevaluate how to better integrate yourself into your immediate environment.
