We hate to run but when duty calls….

Circle Is Open Pictures

It is always something, no matter what! We have got to do a little business this afternoon. Of course, these places don’t keep our hours so we have to occasionally be flexible. We are going to see if we can borrow the money to get our central heat & air fixed. I can tell already it s going to be a long hot summer.

I know last year, we liked to have sweated our rumps off. I said we would never do that again. And hopefully, we won’t have. Wish us good luck!

We will see you tomorrow, Till then,

Love ya,

Lady A

Astronomy Picture of the Day – Summer Triangles over Japan

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

Summer Triangles over Japan
Image Credit & Copyright: Shingo Takei (TWAN)

Explanation: Have you ever seen the Summer Triangle? The bright stars Vega, Deneb, and Altair form a large triangle on the sky that can be seen rising in the early northern early spring during the morning and rising in the northern fall during the evening. During summer months, the triangle can be found nearly overhead near midnight. Featured here, the Summer Triangle asterism was captured last month from Gunma, Japan. In the foreground, sporting a triangular shape of its own, is a flowering 500 year old cherry tree, standing about 15 meters tall. The triangular shape of the asterism is only evident from the direction of Earth — in actuality the stars are thousands of light years apart in space.

Venus in Cancer

Romance turns sweet with the love planet in cozy Cancer

Our love lives have been light and carefree — but also fairly non-committal — since love planet Venus moved into Gemini, but finally romance is about to get sweeter.

That’s because Venus moves into caring Cancer on May 7, 2015, to touch hearts in a much more sentimental way. Get your personal Big Picture Love Forecast to see how this will affect your own love life!

Venus is the planet that rules beauty and affection, and Cancer is the most nurturing zodiac sign, so this transit is all about taking care of our closest romantic relationships and putting our partners first. Oh right, and lots of hugs.

While Venus was in Gemini until June 5, 2015, we were more likely to go out on the town and flirt, but with Venus in Cancer it’s much more intimate. We’ll want to stay at home and bond, cuddle and kiss and talk about our feelings. Yes, men, even you!

This is a great time for building up relationships, so if your love life has been stalled or if you’ve been dating a commitment-phobe, things may take a turn for the better now.

The only downside to Venus in Cancer is that sometimes we are so sensitive about matters of the heart that our feelings get hurt easily. Cancer’s self-protective nature is to withdraw, withhold, hide or pout when hurt, so you may need to watch for such behavior from your partner now.

But for the most part this is a sweet time that’s rich with feeling, to be spent gazing into someone’s eyes and saying “I love you” without using words.

Your Animal Spirit for May 6th is The Mockingbird

Your Animal Spirit for Today
May 6, 2015 

Mockingbird

 

Mockingbirds are master imitators, and can mimic the calls of many other birds. They’re also fearless protectors of their nest, and will attack any bird (no matter how large) to protect their young. Mockingbird’s lesson for you today is twofold: to listen to how you might be mimicking others—instead of listening to your own true voice; and to examine the value of what you defend. Hmmm?

Your Ancient Symbol Card for May 6 is The Ancestors

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today


Ancestors

 

Ancestors represents the ongoing influence and remarkable contributions those who came before us have made to our state of being. Ancestors also reminds us that sometimes old wisdom is the best wisdom–especially when events are moving in ways we do not understand. Ancestors can bring comfort to a shaken spirit. It is a card of warmth in the sense that it reminds us that the spirit of past generations remains with us and can be called upon for guidance at any time.

As a daily card, Ancestors suggests that you may be well served to by exploring your family tree to find solutions to current dilemmas. When searching for solutions to conflicts in your life, you might do well by asking yourself what a grandparent or great grandparent would do in your current situation.

Your Witches Rune for May 6th is The Moon

Today’s Witches Rune

The Moon

Meaning: Differently from the Sun, the Moon has more subtle powers. While it can represent changes too – after all, the moon changes it face a bit every day – these are usually much slower and long-term than the ones represented by the Sun. It’s feminine and passive.

As the rules of the nighttime, the Moon often symbolizes a transition time, in which things are not yet defined or very clear. It may represents lack of information and bad timing – any action done under the influence of the Moon may not go as expected because of that. Just like the moon influences the tides of our planet, it also influences our inner water – our emotions – causing a bit of emotional instability. This often inspires us to act without pondering.

The Moon works with undercurrents, it shows hidden developments or things done in the shadows. All secrets are protected by the Moon, and it its most negative manifestation this rune can stand for lies, deceit and even self-sabotage.

The Moon is also associated with the female cycles, thus it may represent pregnancy, family, roots and ancestors. When the Moon appears, there’s a strong need to go back to your roots in order to find comfort and understanding. It often symbolizes that you have to find yourself a safe place to wait, like a newborn in the womb… You have to be patient.

I relationship readings, the Moon can represent a strong sexual attraction (specially with the Romance rune), secret affairs, hidden and contained impulses and secrets. Although it adds strength to the attraction, it does not add speed, so the Moon can often represent that almost unbearable tension that builds between two people during a long period of time. It can also represent a certain instability in the relationship, with moments of closeness and moments of separation.

Your Daily Rune for May 6th is Ingwaz

bw-ingwazYour Rune For Today
Ingwaz

Ingwaz signifies completion, success and fertility. Your present ambitions are about to be met. You are fecund in both mind and body.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Ingwaz

inguz : Ing

Phonetic equivalent: ng

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: work, productivity, bounty, groundedness, balance, connection with the land

MAGICAL USES:  fertility, farming, growth, general health, balance

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freyr / Ing, Nerthus, Thor, the Vanir

ANALYSIS:  Ing is a Danish / Anglo-Saxon name for Freyr, the God of agriculture and fertility.  Agriculture represents one of the first attempts by mankind to control the environment, and the fertility of crops, animals and people has always been the primary concern and religious focus of most Pagan agrarian societies.  From the earliest Sumerian accounts to modern-day British folk custom, people throughout history have sought to ensure the success of their crops.
The vast majority of people in Western society have lost all contact and connection with the land and the process of growing things.

The spiritual consequences of this segregation from the earth have been disastrous, since most people find it difficult to relate to deity in a purely man-made environment.  The shape of this rune can be likened to that of a field, but its real significance may lie in its balance, representing the harmonious relationship between ourselves and the four elements / four directions.  Inguz reminds us of that ancient connection between the Gods and the land, and re-links (the real meaning of the ‘religion’) us with our spiritual natures through the realm of the physical.  It is quite literally a grounding rune, and by reintroducing us to the earth, it reconnects our bodies, our minds and our spirits.

Your Daily Tarot Card for May 6 is The Sun

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card


The Sun

 

Only The World card of the Tarot can match the blessings that come with The Sun. While it certainly doesn’t promise a life’s path without some bumps in the road, The Sun indicates all will be well. The Sun is our Cosmic Nurturer. Life flourishes under its radiant beams. It provides the illumination to find Truths and lights one’s path so they do not get lost. To stand in the rays of The Sun is to shine. To absorb its energy promotes growth, exceptional physical and mental health, and good fortune. The Sun is empowering, elevating and fills those who bask in it with confidence and sense of self-worth.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday May 7th

By Rick Levine

General Horoscope

We continue to ride the waves of optimism as the buoyant Sagittarius Moon aligns with joyful Jupiter and sweet Venus. However, we may attempt to reclaim our center of gravity once the Moon enters earthy Capricorn at 2:16 pm EDT. Although we tend to hide our feelings once Venus shifts into self-protective Cancer, her magical quintile to Uranus thwarts our efforts to settle down. An electric kind of love is in the air if we can find it.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You aren’t happy with your busy schedule today, but you’re resigned to take the more responsible path anyway. Nevertheless, you must confront your irrepressible temptation to procrastinate; nothing will be gained by distracting yourself from your current obligations. Thankfully, once you commit to wholeheartedly focusing your intentions, you gain the power to harness your unrealized potential and have a productive day in spite of yourself. Ironically, your mind is your weakest link and your greatest ally.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are all set to put the finishing touches on a project today, but unless you are very persistent, things might not go according to your plan. There’s a lot of mental interference in the atmosphere now and the noise could tempt you to ignore your agenda and follow a fleeting whim. Hopefully, you can override your need to escape by practicing a little common sense. You have an opportunity to turn a dream into reality if you pick one track and stay on it.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may appear quite busy today, but others can’t figure out why you’re getting so little done. Oddly enough, you don’t even notice that you’re wasting energy running in circles. Fortunately, you can regain control of your day by consciously slowing down. Analyzing the consequences of your behavior prior to initiating action is much more effective than flying off the handle in every direction. Less hurry and less worry leads to higher productivity and greater self-esteem.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although you can be quite cautious when it comes to revealing your feelings, it’s refreshing to skip the never-ending analysis today. Normally, you prefer to contemplate all your options before doing anything. However, making every little decision as if you’re playing a game of chess takes the excitement out of life. Give yourself permission now to react without concern for what happens next. Putting your emotions out on the table might bring more relief than you expect. Take a chance and open your heart.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might have committed to so many activities today that you don’t know how you’re going to manage your time. Your responsibilities grow more demanding throughout the day and your schedule becomes less forgiving as the afternoon unfolds. Nevertheless, avoid getting so caught up in your own agenda that you can’t see a solution that’s right in front of your nose. A healthy dose of adaptability allows you to accommodate unexpected changes into your calendar with a minimum of disruption. A positive surprise can occur if you give it room to manifest.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your resolve grows stronger throughout the day, raising your confidence about a current project at work. Unfortunately, being productive isn’t your only consideration today; you also want to enjoy yourself in the process. Be careful; don’t use your personal desires to justify sabotaging your efforts if you’re not having a good time. Stay on course and demonstrate your expertise. Ultimately, the satisfaction you derive from a job well done will be enough of a reason to celebrate.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re determined to complete your work but no matter how practical your approach, you still can see beyond the castle walls. Your perspective on life won’t fit into a neat and tidy package now. In fact, you might even recognize how your current efforts merge with your future plans in a way you haven’t yet grasped. You will do your best work in the long run by finishing on your own timetable, not someone else’s. Fortunately, everything should fall into place if you maintain a high level of focus and an unwavering faith in yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may grow agitated as you strive for perfection, especially if you find it hard to concentrate now. If you are tired from working so many hours on a project, take stock of what you have already accomplished and pat yourself on the back. Simply letting others know what you still have left to do alleviates the immediate pressure. Don’t waste energy on self-judgment. A little extra rest is all you need today; tomorrow you will feel refreshed and ready for anything.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

If you have been lax at work recently, it’s time to reassess your priorities before continuing in your old ways. Although you want to put your life back in order, you could overcompensate and take on too much in order to prove your good intentions. However, the ambitious Capricorn Moon helps you plan your schedule with efficiency in mind. Make your energy last longer by taking a more methodical approach. Managing your time wisely allows you to work less and accomplish more.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your friends may be surprised with your uncharacteristic emotional intensity today. They might back off from a conversation to avoid conflict even if they think that you are wrong. Thankfully, the Moon’s monthly return to your sign empowers you to express your vulnerable side without losing track of your goals. Nevertheless, do yourself a big favor and tone down your fervor. You don’t have to push others beyond their comfort zone to stay passionately engaged with your meaningful cause.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be drawn into a complex drama today and there might not be a straightforward way to avoid it. You may sink into your emotions and the more you struggle to be somewhere else, the deeper it gets. There’s no need to panic; your smartest strategy is to stop resisting. Listen to what others have to say and don’t put up unnecessary walls. Your gift is to be a sounding board now for those who need it most. Thankfully, the appreciation you receive in return touches your heart in ways you didn’t expect.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your obsession with one particular version of the future can impede your progress today. Or, you might grow afraid of being stuck on your current path, especially if you don’t like where it’s heading. In both scenarios, your attachment or avoidance intensifies the situation and makes it more challenging to navigate through the circumstances. Relaxing your expectations allows you to explore more options and regain a healthier perspective. Wider horizons lead to a happier heart.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 6th

by Rick Levine

General Horoscope

We may feel as if we have just come through a difficult passage, and the previous restrictions are quickly fading away. The optimistic Sagittarius Moon forms an easy trine with buoyant Jupiter, inspiring us to see the future as we wish it to be. Later in the day, the Moon trines irrepressible Uranus, encouraging us to tempt fate by taking a new and untried path. Meanwhile, an exorbitant Venus-Jupiter alignment stimulates our desire for pleasure.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Fixating on your future goals makes focusing on the present moment impossible. Nevertheless, you’re like a bee to honey today and you can’t take your mind off the road ahead. Perhaps the temptation of so many lovely flowers is just plain irresistible. Nevertheless, ignoring your current responsibilities is not an option. Make whatever modifications to your schedule are necessary to reach your goals. Take care of business now so you can embrace your future later without any baggage.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There could be so many opportunities to seek pleasure today that it’s confusing to know which route to take. You might even believe that your options have so much potential that you can’t go wrong, no matter what alternative you choose. Thankfully, you may not be so far removed from the truth. You have taken the first steps on a very important journey that can be rewarding, both financially and emotionally, as long as you keep moving forward. He who hesitates is lost.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

People naturally assume that you’re having a good time but you’re secretly worried about taking on too many commitments today. Your apparent indifference keeps others in the dark, but only for a short period of time. Once you lose your cover it may be time to face up to your real-world obligations. But this doesn’t mean that everyone gets to tell you what to do. You retain the right to define what’s on your plate. Drawing clear boundaries is the first step to regaining your power.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might have an ingenious idea about how to make money today, only to discover that you are missing an important piece of information. Perhaps, in your eagerness to succeed, you just forgot something you already knew. But your current confidence is not a substitute for having a solid foundation on which to build. Fortunately, a trusted colleague could possess the rational perspective you lack. Taking the time to go over your assumptions with someone else may be all you need to put your thinking back on track. Mixing creativity with practicality is your ticket to success.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your presence is a gift to others today because you are able to maintain your positive attitude in spite of any problems you encounter. Fortunately, leading by example works well for you now as long as your enthusiasm doesn’t get the best of you. You could become so passionate about the prospects of your current job that you end up spreading your energy too thin and losing ground. It’s wonderful to motivate yourself with a big carrot at the end of the stick; just make sure that it’s still within your reach.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Even if you are famously known for your efficiency on the job, following a goal-oriented schedule is not going to happen today. Your agenda might be to keep yourself on a straight and narrow path, but simple twists of fate continue to deliver disruptive messages about your place in the world. You are not meant to be a retiring wall flower now. Engage fully at every chance you get until a new course of action become apparent. Dance like no one is watching while you have the chance.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Yesterday’s uplifting ideas may be today’s headaches. It’s as if each innovative thought is like a hot air balloon that expands so much that it pops. Just as you were growing accustomed to the panoramic view, your fantasy disappears and you must come to grips with your disillusionment. Rest assured this reality check is all part of a larger process. Explore your options without putting all your eggs in one basket. If one door closes, another will open.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Lofty career goals are not enough to inspire you today; what you need is some good old-fashioned magic. In fact, just setting the bar higher can have a chilling effect on your creativity now. If you’re worried about missing your mark, you’re not likely to take as many risks to express your imagination. Nevertheless, the well-traveled path isn’t for you now; reach for the sky, but keep your faith or you might fall off your unicorn.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Sometimes making a new mess is more fun than cleaning up an old one. Unfortunately, you might have already turned your life upside down in a recent search for excitement. You have an eye for the extraordinary, yet putting all your resources into one inspiration now could very well spell doom for the project before it has a chance to get off the ground. Don’t leave loose ends untied today, for your window of opportunity is closing fast. Unfinished business will grow harder to complete over the days ahead, so stop playing around and get to work.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your high level of competence can trick you into underestimating the time and resources needed to complete a job. Unfortunately, people may be counting on you now because they know you perform well under pressure. Meanwhile, you’re trying to cover your error in judgment by working even harder to get things done. Don’t act too surprised when something happens out of the blue today, releasing you from your impossible deadline and resetting your interpersonal dynamics at work. Be grateful for this unexpected gift from the universe and make the best use of your time.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re eager to cut loose today but you don’t want to do it alone. Although others might be out to have fun, you’re concerned that they won’t be able to keep up with you. Unfortunately, you may be so zealous in your quest for pleasure now that you’re prone to overindulge in food, drink or sensory stimulation. Unfortunately, too much of a good thing leads to trouble rather than satisfaction. Don’t wait until it’s too late; set healthy limits while you can. Toning it down just a little brings you joy without any negative consequences.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your confidence is soaring today, leading you to think you have all the answers at work, but you’re not the only one ready to take charge. Instability could be brewing as conflict between the various strategies on the table seems inevitable. Unfortunately, resolving the disagreement could require more resources than the project, itself. There isn’t enough time to deconstruct every aspect of each proposal. Endless analysis may lead you in circles, while finding common ground is the obvious solution.
