We are stopping the daily divinations, the reason….

PullingOutHairB

Because I happen to be an idoit! We were having problems with our IE and Firefox browsers. I was fed up with both of them because we could hardly post. Then I was talking to a few people over the weekend. Those individuals were talking about how great Windows 10 was and how fast it was. Oh yeah, it was just super great. Since we were having problems with the two browsers we normally use, I decided to download Windows 10 on one computer. Guess which one? The one I use daily. It might be super for people who surf the web but when it comes to what we do, it sucks!

 

We have contracts with various sites we use daily. One of the requirements is that we use their logos. Of course, I can’t blame them. I always insist on a link back to us. It use to be simply to grab their logos and run. Ha, today was a totally different story. I did what I normally do and a page element pops up in the middle of the page. You have to sit there and wait for it to find the script you want. Then you copy and paste it, not on your site but on your WordPad or something as I learned this morning. Because what you pull out to get the logo has a whole lot of other garbage with it. You have to remove it and the hopefully you have the image you are after.

 

We got up early this morning. Prepared to deliver our daily publication and it is now five hours later and we don’t have crap done. I am sorry for all those people out there that loves Window 10 but in my opinion (which we all know what that is worth) it SUCKS! But I guarantee you one thing, this little devil of a computer program shall not beat me. I will learn it one way or the other. Or else, I will go back to my old computer which has Windows 8.1 on it, THANK THE GODDESS!

 

Right now I am so glad I only downloaded it on one computer. If I had downloaded it on all our computers you would have been able to hear me cussing and screaming all the way up in Alaska. So after such a wonderful day(NOT), we are calling it a day. I am going to go take a couple of Valium (it I had any) and Tylenol and get rid of this headache. Tonight, I am conquering this damn computer one way or the other. Tomorrow, I guarantee you, we will be back, bright, early and ready to go.

Till then wish me luck and sanity,

Love ya,

Lady A

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Horoscopes for Monday, August 10th

 
Aries

Jupiter moves into your sector of work and health today, dear Aries, where it will stay for over a year. This is an excellent cycle in which to improve your skills and focus on your work, health, and routines. You are absorbing a lot, and you might often serve and help others during this cycle that lasts just over a year. Your ability to handle the details required to do a good job is improved, and the people around you are taking notice of your skills. This can also mean that you’re asked to help out a lot – the expression “be careful about what you’re good at” comes to mind! Fortunately, you’re likely to enjoy helping and supporting others, but you need to draw some boundaries. It can be easier to find employment if you’re looking, and if you are wanting to change jobs, this may be a good time to do so. Today, you’re more likely to want to stick with familiar people, places, and ideas with the Moon in your home and family sector all day.

 

Taurus

Jupiter enters your solar fifth house today, dear Taurus, where it will influence for a little over a year. This sector of your chart rules creativity, self-expression, hobbies, games, entertainment, romance, and children. Any or all of these things can benefit during this fortunate transit. You are more willing to express and enjoy yourself now, and this attitude can bring new opportunities into your life. Your social life might pick up pace, and you tend to lose many of your recent inhibitions to express yourself. Generally speaking, you are fun to be around, but you should watch for extravagance and excess. New channels for creative expression can open up, such as a new or renewed hobby. There can be a nice focus on the element of “play” and entertainment in your life, which can be much needed. Today, your curiosity is piqued and you tend to find many different things to do rather than settling on any one particular endeavor or topic.

 

Gemini

Jupiter begins its transit of your sector of home and family today, dear Gemini, and will influence this area of your solar chart for just over a year. The year ahead is one in which settling in, being with family, and building or enhancing your home can be especially enjoyable. You can feel very fulfilled during this warm cycle, although not especially venturesome. Inner and personal experiences hold far more appeal than more worldly pursuits. Home improvements and renovations are favored can be especially successful, as is moving to a new dwelling (more spacious or larger homes are likely now). There could be a family reunion, vacation, or other happy event that reconnects you to your roots. Some of you could improve their domestic life in some significant way. This is a time for learning more about yourself, your heart, and the people closest to you.

 

Cancer

Jupiter moves out of your resources sector and into your communications sector today, dear Cancer, where it will transit for over a year. This is a good cycle for you to branch out and connect – you are learning new things, sharing your ideas, and developing important skills. Educational and communication opportunities can emerge, and should be successful. You may increase your knowledge and skills set, and you could enjoy learning more than you typically do. Reach high when it comes to schooling, writing, speaking, and so forth. There could be improved relations with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and acquaintances. You’re more approachable and make connections very easily. Transportation opportunities can open up for you. Today, the Moon is in your sign all day, drawing out your emotions and unacknowledged emotional needs.

 

Leo

Jupiter leaves your sign today, dear Leo, and begins its transit of your money and values sector, where it will stay for a little over a year. Your earning power increases, and new avenues for making money can open up. For some, there is simply a better feeling of contentment and a stronger sense of abundance. You might enjoy more confidence and enthusiasm for business or building on recent ideas. You might work on your natural talents, building upon them, and very much enjoy doing so. There can be a strong desire to pamper yourself, splurge, and luxuriate. Soon enough, Jupiter will hook up with Pluto, and your ideas are not only golden, you have the energy and ambition to really put them into action. Today, the Moon is in the sign just behind yours all day, and some level of anonymity or emotional retreat is appropriate now.
 Virgo

Jupiter enters your sign today, Virgo, and will transit Virgo for a little over a year. This transit brings increased self-confidence and generosity to your world. Your image improves considerably at this time – you exude wonderful warmth and people love being in your presence. It’s a great time to further your personal goals. You are more enthusiastic, generous, and optimistic. You are far less interested in what happened in the past, and totally excited about your present and future. You are not sweating the small stuff, and thinking about the big picture instead. If you’ve done your inner “work” well, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. You’re likely to see opportunities where you previously saw obstacles. You are less guarded about what you say and do, and thus feel freer to express yourself.
Libra

Jupiter moves into your privacy and soul sector today, dear Libra, where it will transit for over a year. This brings benefits and joy to your private world and behind the scenes activities. You might often play a supportive role to others, your compassion is heightened, and you are building your inner faith during this cycle. This can be considered preparation for Jupiter’s transit of your sign beginning in September 2016, but your life isn’t on hold. Volunteer work or charity can be in focus, but for many of you, you’ll find yourself helping others more than usual. Your best bet, though, is to help others to help themselves. Watch for a tendency towards escapist behavior. This is a time for healing yourself from the inside out. You’re in need of some solitude and introspection at this time in your life. With the ruler of your communications sector in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, you could be keeping a lot of your thoughts, personal interests, or projects to yourself during this cycle. For some of you, there can be work on a project in relative solitude or privacy.
Scorpio

Today and for a little over a year, Jupiter transits your solar eleventh house, dear Scorpio, and this can expand your social life. Benefits and joy can come through friendships, new ideas and projects, and networking or group activities. It’s time to make a mission statement for your life, and happiness goals are the subject. Friends can be especially helpful, supportive, and involved. You are more willing to reach out, join groups, and connect with your associates. Your wishes and goals are in strong focus, and can be especially unique and possibly quite innovative and ahead of the times. Others can point you in new directions. For some of you, there can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income might increase.
Sagittarius

Jupiter begins its journey of your career and reputation sector today, Sagittarius, and this transit can prompt professional success or increased enjoyment of your work, and improved recognition. For some of you, there could be a promotion or new job opportunities. For others, there could be an important culmination such as a diploma or award, or the blossoming of a long-term project. People in authority tend to see your potential and offer you opportunities. Jupiter brings the gifts of courage, enthusiasm, and confidence, and these can be applied to your professional or public life. It’s a time when showing your principled side is beneficial. With the natural ruler of the career and reputation sector, Saturn, restarting its transit of your sign in September, this theme of increased responsibility and ambition is reinforced.
Capricorn

Jupiter moves into fellow Earth sign (Virgo) today, dear Capricorn, where it will transit for a little over a year. Jupiter brings increase, expansion, and growth to the areas it touches, and also opens up opportunities. For you in the coming year, these can be about traveling, studying, learning, promoting, or publishing. You are more adventurous and willing to explore. Academic pursuits can run especially smoothly, and legal matters may work in your favor. Writing flows, and so does learning. There can be cross-cultural connections of great value and benefit. You may be helping, volunteering services, or supporting people along educational lines, writing about past experiences, and sharing your ideas during this empowering cycle. Today, conversations and interactions with a partner or close friend can be especially significant. Benefits come from truly listening and playing a supportive role now.

 

Aquarius

Jupiter begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Aquarius, where it will stay for a little over a year. Jupiter is bringing its gifts of confidence and courage to your intimate world. Attracting support, both emotional and financial, can be easier than usual. Your intimate life might expand and become larger than life – there can be a lot going on behind the scenes and on the inside, and it’s generally happy stuff. You might choose to get very comfortable with the darker or hidden elements of your personality, and you can grow to really understand your psychological workings. You instinctively realize that the path to healing is to face your fears. It’s a great time, as well, to work on financial planning and strategy. Financial gains could come through a partnership for some of you – teaming up can lead to a stronger feeling of abundance. There might also be a significant intimate relationship that brings you a lot of joy. Friendships might deepen during this period. You could be working towards a cause that is very close to your heart.

 

Pisces

Jupiter moves into your partnership sector today, dear Pisces, where it will transit for just over a year. In the year ahead, you might enter into a significant partnership or enhance an existing one. There can be good publicity and favorable legal outcomes, or negotiations that help end conflict in your life. Generally speaking, others are helpful and relationships are growth-oriented. You are likely to attract supportive, helpful, and happy people into your life. You could be more popular in your career this year, or your work might involve counseling, relationships, negotiations, or one-on-one interactions. A partnership could form through professional connections, or an existing partnership can strengthen through sharing of professional aspirations. Today, the Moon is in your creativity and romance sector all day, bringing out your more playful inclinations.

If You Were Born Today, August 10

Your personality is colorful, inventive, and intriguing. You often seem to choose the more difficult path in life, as perhaps you find it more satisfying. Although it might not be obvious to acquaintances, you tend to be a worrier, mostly about security and finances. You crave variety and are at your best when you have freedom of movement, some level of independence, and the ability to get away now and again. However, you are also dependable with those you love most. Routine is to be avoided – there seems to be greater luck in your life with changes, and when your creativity is allowed to blossom. You are vital and competitive, and able to put your emotions aside when need be. You are also proud and have an occasional domineering streak. You tend to fare better in love later in life. Famous people born today: Antonio Banderas, Ian Anderson, Eddie Fisher, Jimmy Dean, Justin Theroux, Lucas Till, Phoolan Devi.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 10

 

Aries Horoscope
With Mercury in your solar sixth house these days, there can be more mental work or menial tasks in your life, dear Aries, and sometimes the details of your everyday life can be all-consuming when Mercury is challenged. This can happen today – you might feel a little scattered. Watch for nit-picking and nervous tension! Stifling situations and activities that restrict you seem more plentiful these days, but today you could feel a little caged in. Watch that you are not making changes simply for the sake of change. Focus instead on making changes that move you forward.

 

Taurus

With Mercury in your creative sector these days, dear Taurus, there can be more drama, playfulness, and fun in your communications. Today’s Mercury-Uranus clash may stir up some problems, however, possibly from something you say or how you’re interpreted by others. A relationship could feel a little competitive. Even so, surprises can bring interesting insight into your true feelings or could prompt a mental detour that leads to positive change. You don’t have to take others into your confidence if you aren’t ready to, but be as honest as possible with yourself for best results now. This is how you truly learn and grow.

 

Gemini

The Moon leaves your sign this morning, and enters your solar second house, dear Gemini. This position of the Moon tends to steady your emotions or at the very least calm your sense of urgency to meet emotional needs. However, with your ruler in communication with Uranus today, the desire to shake things up or to effect change can be with you. Know what needs changing and why, or you could just be stirring up trouble. Freedom issues with friends and balancing your social life with family or personal time can figure strongly now. Friends or networks could stimulate new ideas or could completely change your perspective on a matter.

 

Cancer

The Moon enters your sign this morning, dear Cancer, bringing any emotions that you’ve been brushing to the side up to the surface. With the Moon in your sign, your own needs are your primary concern, and if you’ve been ignoring them, you could feel a bit of an emotional flood now. There can be a lot of mental energy with you these days, or much busy work that keeps you on your toes. Today, this can serve to go too far, make you tense, and possibly even disrupt your workflow. Watch for impulsiveness in your speech and in transit if you’re feeling stressed out. However, pay attention to new ideas, which may be raw for now, but quite creative and even inspired.

 

Leo

The Moon entering your privacy sector this morning lends you a somewhat withdrawn manner today, dear Leo. This is a natural time for pulling back from the more demanding or competitive elements of your life in order to get some peace and to reconnect with yourself. There can be some pressure from the outside, and this can stir escapist feelings. Tend to your own needs and the demands on you in as balanced a manner as possible, because ignoring either can bring up guilt or leave you feeling behind. There may be some tendency to fret or worry over money and valuables. For some, there may be technical problems to deal with, particularly related to travel, publishing, money, and personal possessions.
Virgo

With Mercury in your sign these days, dear Virgo, you can find that you’re busier than usual, and perhaps have more decisions to make that you feel you must make on your own. Today, Mercury forms a challenging aspect with Uranus – a mild one, but it could be just enough that you feel restless. The trick is to find where you need to change up the routine. Try to give your mind a bit of a break, if you have the chance to, by exploring a new interest or simply getting a breath of fresh air. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life can come now. You might experience a moment of truth, or of motivation to kick a bad habit and to live a freer, more joyful life as a result.
Libra

With Mercury in your privacy sector and Venus retrograde these days, dear Libra, it’s especially important to know when you are crossing the line from analyzing the past in order to improve the present, to obsessing over things you cannot undo. Try not to go overboard. Nervous tension is possible now if you can’t seem to turn your mind “off”. Reduce stimulants and simplify your day as much as possible. This is not the time to jump into something without first considering your options. If you don’t know where you’re going, it doesn’t matter how fast you go, so try to slow down. The Moon moves into your professional sector this morning, and this can stimulate a need to shine, improve, and perform.
Scorpio

The Moon moves into your adventure sector this morning, dear Scorpio, and this shift tends to pull you out of yourself. It’s a time for experimenting and dreaming. Mercury in your solar eleventh house these days stimulates inventive and progressive thinking, but with its hard aspect to Uranus today, this may be taken out of bounds. Watch for jumping forward with ideas that are undeveloped or speaking too soon about a matter. Instead of developing the skills you need now, out of a bit of boredom, you could be wanting to jump into something new, but this may only serve to add too much to your life to the point that you are stressed and stretched out. You may need to mix up your routines in order to feel a little more engaged.
Sagittarius

The normal, usual routine may not seem very appealing today, dear Sagittarius, particularly on a mental level, as you can be feeling hungry for mental stimulation and new ideas. However, with too much going on around you, you may not be able to fully appreciate these things if they do emerge. As well, you may be ignoring the work that needs to be done simply because it’s not appealing for the moment. Try to breathe new life into your current projects and priorities rather than chasing excitement that may only serve to bog you down or leave you feeling behind.
Capricorn

This is a good time for dreaming up big ideas, dear Capricorn, but not necessarily for their practical implementation. This shouldn’t, of course, stop you from thinking about possibilities. What you may want to watch for today, however, is chasing different ideas and experiences just because you are a little restless or bored with what you’re doing. Try to simplify things rather than taking on more. Also, impatience in your communications or transit can lead to problems now. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be drawing conclusions too quickly. New ideas can draw you in, but it’s important to know whether you truly have room to pursue a whole new project or interest, and if not, whether you can make room for it.

 

Aquarius

You can be especially attracted to new ideas and topics of study right now, dear Aquarius, but in so doing you may be losing a lot of time for the things you need to do in order for your life to run smoothly. Taking on new things without truly making room for them can add a lot of unnecessary stress to your life. Satisfy your need for change and mental stimulation today in small, balanced ways, by changing up your routine or approaching the work you need to do in different ways. Try not to jump into decisions today, and avoid hasty remarks, emails, texts, and the like. It can be so easy for you to get caught up in the moment or in your own excitement that you temporarily lose touch with common sense. The Moon moves into your solar sixth house this morning for a couple of days, and this brings good energy for health and work endeavors.

 

Pisces

You could be making a surprise connection now, dear Pisces, that shakes up your perspective or line of thinking. This might occur while taking part in activities revolving around finances, such as while banking or shopping. Avoid jumping into new projects, particularly money-making ones, however. While you’re itching to change your situation, risky moves are not advised for the moment. People around you may be a little unreliable now, or they might come up with unusual news. People may be challenging your ideas or simply changing your view of them.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 10th

 

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 10th
by Maria DeSimone

Get ready for a shift in cosmic luck! On Tuesday, Jupiter will enter Virgo and until September 2016, there will be more blessings than you can imagine possible as they relate to your willingness to go the extra mile and get the job done. How does this translate in the romance department? Well, if your partner sees how much you’re willing to put into the relationship, chances are he or she will reciprocate. Wonderful! Communication is shifty on Wednesday, thanks to a nebulous opposition between Mercury and Neptune. Avoid vital conversations with your mate until Saturday when Mercury and Pluto are in a potent trine. Also, after Friday, a delicious New Moon in romantic Leo suggests you WILL be able to escape from the clenches of Venus retrograde after all. Love will definitely be in the air!

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Grab the love potential this week Aries because as long as you’re willing to take it — it’s yours! It all starts on Thursday, when the Sun in your romance sector will be at a perfect link to Uranus, now in your sign. The more original you can be, the sexier you become. It’s really that simple! Then, on Friday, a delicious New Moon in your 5th House of True Love can set the tone for a brand new love affair. Venus retrograde bumps into the Sun on Saturday making sure that you revisit the way romance can make you come alive.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)
Are you ready for a seismic shift in your love life? Well get ready Taurus, because ready or not, here it comes! This Tuesday, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will enter your 5th House of Romance for the first time in twelve years! Until September 2016, you’ll have your happiest prospects to meet and fall in love with someone special, if you’re single. If attached, you might have a baby or somehow reignite all those initial dating sparks with your love. Don’t worry if you don’t feel this shift immediately. Remember, your ruler, Venus is still retrograde until September 6. Just know that it’s coming. Soon.
 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)
Mental connections are always vital to you when it comes to romance. Happily, this week, it appears that the universe is supporting them fully. On Thursday, you and your love might enjoy a stimulating conversation about your shared dreams that leaves you feeling extra amorous. Then, after Friday, it looks like the two of you are finally ready to sit down and make some of those life altering decisions about your future. You’ll definitely be on the same page.
 

Cancer Horoscope

(June 21 – Jul 22)
If you and your partner have a vital decision to make together this week, or, if you have a deep and meaningful conversation — it’ll be important to time it right. Don’t even bother near Wednesday, when Mercury and Neptune oppose one another. Mixed messages will be everywhere! Instead, aim for Saturday, when Mercury in your communication sector will be at a perfect trine to Pluto, now in your relationship sector. You’ll be glad you did.
 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
This is your week to shine Leo! Let’s not focus on Venus, still traveling retrograde in your sign because you don’t have to worry about her dulling your sparkle now. In fact, it appears you’re ready to dazzle others in a whole new way, thanks to the glorious New Moon in your sign this Friday. You are presenting yourself in an entirely new light which will be extremely attractive to others. The only caveat? Someone from your past might want you a bit more than you want him or her. Oh well.
Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your time has arrived! This Tuesday, Jupiter, the planet of blessings, will enter your sign for the first time in twelve years. This monumental cosmic shift will shower you with more opportunity for goodness than you can possibly imagine. One notable effect it will have is to your love and relationship life. New relationships will form until September 2016 with the power to lift you up in magical ways. If you’re single, this year you might meet someone extra special. If attached, your relationship looks brighter than ever. Enjoy!
 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
There’s fabulous news for you in the romance department! A friend might be the key to turning your love life around, so pay attention to what your pals are saying. This might be in the form of meaningful advice, or, if single, an offer to set you up with someone. This might be someone you declined to meet in the past for one reason or another. This week however, you may have a change of heart. Going with the flow can be the best decision you make for your love life this week.
 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Expect a breath of fresh air in your love and social life this week. On Tuesday, Jupiter will enter your 11th House of Friends, Groups, Hopes and Dreams for the first time in twelve years. What this suggests is that if finding love is on your dream priority list, Jupiter can provide all the support necessary to help make it happen. Another possibility is that, since your social life is about to get busier and happier, you will be in the position to mingle with plenty of interesting souls. Keep your heart open.
 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Communication might be extra fuzzy with your partner this Wednesday — especially if you’re discussing anything that has to do with a family or career matter. Avoid getting locked into any decisions on this day since neither one of you will feel that you’ve got your facts straight. The good news is that after Friday you and your mate are likely to see a light at the end of the tunnel relating to differences of opinion. Finally!
 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Intimate matters between you and your partner continue to be the focus. Happily, this week appears to bring progress in at least one of the areas you’ve been struggling with. It might be sexual or financial in nature — and possibly both. Pay attention to developments that occur after Friday when solutions should begin to appear. You’ll be relieved on one level but you’ll also be excited. Things will suddenly look much brighter than you once thought.
 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You and your partner will continue to pay close attention to all matters of couple hood. The good news is that a wonderful conversation between the two of you on Thursday might lead to a fresh start in the relationship area for both of you by Friday. If you’ve felt less than satisfied, suddenly you’ll get this warm and fuzzy feeling that maybe, love can conquer all. Guess what? It can.
 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Anticipate a significant change in the possibilities ahead for you and someone close. If you’re in a relationship that’s already going well, expect it to become even better. If dating, you and a love mate could decide that it’s time to make a stronger commitment to one another. Even if you’re in a sour relationship, as long as you both are willing to work on things, there will be much promise ahead. All of this is due to Jupiter’s shift into your 7th House of Partnership on Tuesday. Until September 2016 you’ll have remarkable support in your relationship life. Yes!

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: August 9 – 15, 2015

Weekly Forecast: August 9 – 15, 2015

 

a message from Kelly M. Beard

To read more of Kelly’s insight, please visit her website, www.KarmicTools.com

 

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: August 9 – 15, 2015

8/12 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):

This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation – not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self – or at least check in often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait a week for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision – others vision will be blurred and just out of reach.

8/13 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve or release that which is no longer useful. It’s a good energy for organizing and clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with or released. You’ll may be feeling very practical this week.

8/15 ~ Venus (relationships) ~conjunct~ Sun (individual): (1 of 2: 8.15.2015 & 6.16.2016)

This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of. When Sun contacts Venus, the creativity is centered around you, however, here as Venus contacts the Sun, it’s all about the creation! Use this Solar infusion to brighten & illuminate yourSelf, your surroundings or your creative projects. This expands your magnetic field and opportunities result. There is a burst of new energy wanting to be expressed through you, and it’s based on your new values & priorities. It is the beginning of a new creative cycle. Love too is a creative force, so if your relationships are more center-stage than your creative projects, then this too lends new potency to what you create with others (personal or professional). Invite or allow support and guidance from men and the Divine Masculine within and around you.

8/15 ~ Mercury (inner-voice) ~trine~ Pluto (deep connection):

This energy provokes deep delving WITHIN. You will be most inclined toward learning the meaning “behind the meaning”. You will want to explore your inner Self and try to understand it better. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books and music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force your particular opinion on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you are more objective.

 

8/12 ~ Mercury (lower mind) ~oppose~ Neptune (Higher mind):

This energy requires us to balance the Higher and lower mind. Some sensitive souls will feel bombarded by energies from all sides and it may feel like information-overload and very stressful. The best use of this transit is meditation – not making important decisions or commitments for a week or so. Communication with others is challenged, another reason to only communicate with your Higher Self – or at least check in often this week! Don’t believe everything you read or hear. Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait a week for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision – others vision will be blurred and just out of reach.

8/13 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This energy is wonderful for a little self-examination. Look at your habits, home situation, work or anything else that is important to you and look at how you’ve gotten to where you are. What kind of choices led here? This is a good time to look around and see how you can conserve or release that which is no longer useful. It’s a good energy for organizing and clearing the decks, so to speak, of things that have piled up but still need to be dealt with or released. You’ll may be feeling very practical this week.

8/15 ~ Venus (relationships) ~conjunct~ Sun (individual): (1 of 2: 8.15.2015 & 6.16.2016)

This activates your innate creativity and gets your wheels turning about what you want to bring to life in the world, what you want to invest in and be a part of.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Dragon Day Spell

Wiccan Magic

Dragon Day Spell

 

Today is the day to use dragon energy. Dragon energy is straightforward, so be careful for what you ask. You will receive it in the most direct way. Be very specific. Dragon logic is not human logic. Dragon moves from A to B, and simply removes anything in its way. For example: an acquaintance asked Dragon, without going into specifics, to change her living situation. As a result, a few days later there was a fire in her apartment building, and she was left without a place to live. That’s a change, but it was not the one she wanted! Dragon energy is great for removing blocks, but only use it when you are determined to make a change.

Using Dragon energy when you fear change will backfire on you. Pick something in your life that you wish to unblock. Find an image of a dragon that you feel connected to. Decorate your altar using bright colors and shiny, sparkly accessories. Cast a circle. Invite Dragon energy to join you in the ritual. Discuss the situation thoroughly with Dragon; consider the options, and request Dragon’s help in a way that will harm none. Ground and close the circle. You should feel energized at the end of the ritual. Dragon energy usually works quickly and in unexpected ways, so be aware of everything around you—as rapid change is on its way.
