Your Rune for Monday, August 31 is Isa


bw-isaYour Rune For Today

The Ice Rune, represents stagnation and a passionless existence. Your life’s course may seem blurry at the moment, but if you persevere you will move onto better days

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Isa. . .

isa : ice

Phonetic equivalent: i (ee as in ‘eel’)

inactivity, blockage, stagnation, potential, patience, reflection, withdrawl, rest
to stop a process; to represent primal form
Auðumla, Nifelheim
In modern symbology, fire is generally masculine and ice (or earth) is feminine, but it is unknown whether the Norse shared this association. Certainly, ice was a constant factor in their day to day lives. It threatened their crops and their ships almost throughout the year, but it also served as a symbol of creation, from which all life will eventually spring. It says something about the Norse mind that they could recognize the need to have such a seemingly destructive joining of elements in order to create and maintain life. Fire may be warm and pleasant, but it must be balanced by the freezing of winter just as birth must be balanced by death. Even the little death of sleep has been proven to be vital for our mental and physical well-being.
Isa encompasses all of these ideas, but primarily represents a period of rest before activity, and itself forms the material from which life can be created. It is matter, inert by itself, but transformed into the stuff of stars when wedded with energy. It is the immovable form acted upon the irresistible force. In many ways, the Norse predicted Einstein with their version of the creation of the universe, recognizing that everything in their world contained both fire and ice (energy and matter), and that the relationship between the two defined the processes of life itself.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Aug. 31st is Lust

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today


While similar to classic Tarot’s Strength card, Lust goes a step further by suggesting we should enjoy the pleasures of exercising our strengths, sating our passions, and embracing that which allows one to express the majesty of their unique self. The lust this card indicates is not purely sexual, but at its most basic this lust is a primal desire to experience life to the fullest degree possible while taming our more beastly side. Lust implies that we not fight with our base instincts, but rather that we accept and manage and nourish them as an essential aspect of maintaining a balanced, complete self.

Your Personal Desire Tarot Cards

This reading focuses on your ambitions and dreams.

The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man is the most enigmatic card of the Tarot. Even Tarot giants like Waite, Crowley and Levi had trouble deciphering The Hanged Man’s true meaning. Generally The Hanged Man is thought to represent the value of surrender and selfless acts. The Hanged Man embodies the notion that sometimes to lose is to win. Unlike the aggressive Chariot, The Hanged Man creates his fate through inaction and accepts his fortune passively, without resistance. He does not struggle to control the path his life takes, but rather allows events to sweep him where they will, even if he is called upon to sacrifice himself. He is so at ease with the Fate the Universe chose for him that even hanging upside down from a tree does not ruffle his inner peace.

When The High Priestess or Strength is among your personal cards, the influence of The Hanged Man may be increased. Having The Magus or Chariot in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Hanged Man.

The Empress

The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

When The Lover or The Star are among your personal cards, the influence of The Empress may be increased. Having the Emperor or Death in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Empress.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, September 1st



Aries Horoscope

It’s natural to feel a little more energetic and spontaneous today than you usually are, dear Aries, with the Moon in your sign and your ruler, Mars, just coming away from a conjunction to Venus. You are quick to pick up on what is expected of you today, and yet you are marching to your own inner “drummer”, managing to nevertheless take the lead and own it. Emotions are immediate and at the surface, but you seem to be setting the pace for the most part now, and it can feel good to be in control and on top of things.



You are absorbing energies around you in a more introverted manner than usual today, dear Taurus, and you stand to learn quite a bit from observation today with the Moon in Aries, the sign just behind yours. You will quite naturally come out of your shell again when the Moon enters Taurus tomorrow morning, but for now, sticking with quiet activities, if possible, is most helpful emotionally. Let your intuition work for you. This is not a time when you’re especially forthcoming or expressive with your feelings, as you can be a little guarded, but it’s also a time when you are processing recent experiences, and it can take a bit of time to get in touch with your innermost feelings.



Today brings a stronger desire to be around people, dear Gemini. Common philosophies, beliefs, or goals are apparent now, perhaps because you’re seeking them out. You’re also looking to gently push the usual boundaries and seeking out different experiences. Your more inventive, innovative, and perhaps rebellious side can emerge now. While this is sociable energy that’s with you today, the month ahead brings a stronger desire to reconnect with family, home life, or your inner world.



You may be feeling very much in charge today, dear Cancer, and even if you don’t, you’ll need to at least act like you feel that way! Responsibilities have a way of presenting themselves loud and clear today. The Moon is highlighting your career and reputation sector, and will continue to do so until tomorrow morning. If you feel things heating up in your career or your public life, you’re very much in tune. Do whatever you can to present yourself in the most professional and competent of manners now.



Good energy is with you for putting things into perspective and for feeling positive about the future, dear Leo. This is a strong day for identifying problems in your life and visualizing life as it would be after putting these things behind you. While there is definitely a time for concentrating on details, today you need to take a step back in order to see the bigger picture. Step out of your regular routine in order to refresh yourself emotionally. You are learning to trust your intuition and imagination when it comes to spiritual matters recently, and today this is emphasized.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

After a few days of wearing your emotions on your sleeve, dear Virgo, emotions are internalized today. You could find that you’re honing in on the more hidden elements of life, looking for motives and deeper meaning. If you’re feeling a little insecure or have unresolved issues to deal with, you could find that your mind turns to matters revolving around old hurts, inequalities, and unfair scenarios. Matters of ownership can be in stronger focus now. Don’t fight the urge to go inward, but remember that you can choose to make this a positive experience.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

With the Moon in your opposite sign all day, dear Libra, you may be looking to others for emotional stimulation or security today. Being emotionally sensitive to others can go both ways – you are caring more than usual about what they are feeling about you, but you’re also more adaptable and willing to compromise. Using this sensitivity in positive ways can be rewarding now. You may be turning to someone else for advice or simply company. Try to take a breather from heavy emotions or emotional excitement. Fortunately, the month ahead supports efforts to get away and rest more than most.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Emotional satisfaction comes from making yourself useful today, dear Scorpio, which can come as a nice change after many days focusing on relationships and social matters. The monotony of the routine, however, is not what you’re seeking, so it may be a good idea to do new things or combine play and work to keep you engaged. Energy is variable, and you might discover that it’s more about motivation than physical matters. If you’re lacking confidence in what you’re doing or where you’re headed, then you may steer off course a little. Fortunately, the month ahead is likely to be especially strong for inspiration and new ideas.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

The playful energies of the day are pronounced, dear Sagittarius, and possibly come as a nice relief. With others, you manage to be conciliatory and dynamic at once, and this is a difficult and wonderful balance to achieve. You are generous with your time and energy today, and you’re coming across as magnetic and expressive. Love relationships and/or friendships are not especially clear right now, but perhaps they don’t need to be at the moment. Enjoy yourself by going with the flow now.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

The month ahead should be an energizing one for you, dear Capricorn. Powerful energy is brought to your solar ninth house, and this brings out your curious and adventurous side. Today, however, you’re more content to stick with familiar things, people, and methods. Avoid the temptation to jump into something new when there are very valuable projects in progress that you can restore or tweak. Early day intensity and dramatics tend to settle as the day moves forward, after which you’ll find yourself intuiting your way through whatever you do.



You are especially alert today, dear Aquarius, as well as insatiably curious about what’s going on around you. You are likely to be in the mood for idle chit chat, making connections, and sharing small yet important stories from your day with others. While it may not be the best day for concentration, you can be productive if you put your mind to it, and if you vary up your routine. Focus is on sharing and interacting more than anything, so working on a communications project can be especially successful right now.



You are in a more practical frame of mind today, dear Pisces, but you are also quite innovative, able to bring new energy to the material world. Emotions are settling today. Although they’re still exciting, emotions are steady enough to allow you to relax and enjoy the moment. Earthy, grounding, and comforting activities are most helpful now, and happen to be what you’re most drawn to at the moment. You may be craving physical comforts, and can be a little more possessive or self-centered today, which can be a good thing in moderation from time to time.

If You Were Born Today, August 31


If You Were Born Today, August 31

You can be extremely persuasive and charming. However, although you do use your charm to your advantage, there is a point when your big heart and strong morals keep you from taking advantage of others. You have a strong presence and magnetism – qualities that help you immensely towards achievement and success. Security is important to you, and you will work hard to make sure your life is as stable as possible. While you can have a lot of things going on at once, you at your best when you stay organized and when you develop routines and schedules. While you are romantically inclined, you may have your fair share of challenges in love. Luckily, you grow and learn from early mistakes. You are intuitively drawn to loyal, stable partners because of a strong need for security in love. You seek balance in your personal relationships, and you are not afraid to work hard to achieve it. The practical aspects of partnership are important to you, as you intuitively know that although love is important, relationships also need to work in the real world in order to thrive.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 31st






Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 31st



Aries Horoscope

Emotional impulsiveness can sometimes work in your favor, dear Aries, but only if you’re acting from a place of understanding and heart, not from insecurity. Relationships or projects can be in strong focus today, but past mistakes or challenges may figure strongly in your mind. There could be a disappointment or a misjudgment now which needs correcting. Fortunately, September’s energies are strong for making edits. Energy levels are up and down today. You’re getting a reminder that taking care of mental health is not something to ignore, and that you should aim to respect your natural body energy rhythms instead of challenging them. Love and creativity are emphasized today, particularly on the job. You might decide to turn a hobby into something a little more practical, or a fantasy into something concrete and meaningful. This is a potentially strong day for personal attraction as well.



There may be a small disappointment in your social life today, dear Taurus, possibly due to overblown expectations. You may be questioning a situation that is ambiguous, particularly related to romantic and platonic friendships. It’s not a time for coming to a solid conclusion or a point of closure, so it’s better to wait things out. Even though there is increasing energy for creative and romantic matters in your life these days, you could be tired, overworked, or feeling temporarily lacking in inspiration, making it difficult to tap into your creativity just for the moment. This simply means it’s time to take a small break until you regain your composure. Even so, you are certainly magnetic and attractive right now, drawing attention to you. You are especially aware of, and awake to, creative and romantic impulses.



There can be sensitivity when it comes to reputation or career matters today, dear Gemini, or you could be confused about where you stand. Hold off on very important decision making and large purchases if possible. The need to make adjustments and changes in work-life balance can be obvious now, but should be made when you’re more confident. You are searching for more meaning and a stronger direction in life, and paying a little more attention to intuition to guide you as definite answers don’t seem easy to come by these days. While there can be some tendency to get caught up in rumors, there is good, creative energy for communicating, connecting, and sharing or learning. Your heart is ruling your head today, and there can be some level of drama as a result, but it can also take you to creative, interesting places. Emotional excitement is likely today. You are expressing yourself creatively and attractively. Some of you can receive a warm message from an admirer.



There can be some confusion, disappointment, or simply a temporary questioning of motivation experienced today, dear Cancer, and for you, it is likely to revolve around communications, transportation, projects, and learning. Be a little more vigilant if working with facts and figures, and watch that you don’t communicate in a way that can be misinterpreted. Dream and create, but be cautious when it comes to more practical matters, including driving and operating machinery. If someone is trying to get a commitment or definite answer out of you, and you don’t totally feel right about it, try to politely defer it to a more confident time. Even so, it’s a strong day for creative visions. Venus and Mars joining forces in your solar second house can stimulate good ideas, just be sure to fill in the technical details at a later date. Watch for impulsive purchases.



There may be some confusion surrounding financial or intimate matters today as your ruler, the Sun, opposes Neptune, dear Leo. This yearly event can illuminate the need for more attention to your spiritual and emotional needs. There is a stronger focus on the material and physical world these days, and today, experiences may illuminate some level of spiritual discontent. Some of you could be dealing with a situation in which you need to draw boundaries with others who are draining you of time or energy. On practical levels, avoid making larger purchases as well as lending and borrowing, just for now, until you are seeing things more clearly. Some of you could be questioning someone’s intentions or whether you’re being shown the respect you deserve. This is not the time to push for problem solving, nor for making important decisions in the material world. Even so, Venus and Mars joining forces in your sign today point to animal magnetism and extra sparkle.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

You may be feeling especially sensitive to people’s reactions and comments today, dear Virgo. The Sun in your sign lifts your spirits in general these days, but an opposition to Neptune today, a yearly event, can point to a small disappointment or seeming setback. Someone or something may burst your bubble, or you could be feeling discontent or misunderstood now. You could find that you’re swinging from overly positive to overly negative assessments of yourself and of a close someone, and can’t seem to find the in-between, which is of course where the truth lies. Avoid the trap of hoping that someone else will make you happy – work on making yourself happy. Everything seems to happen at once today, and this can be quite wonderful if you are prepared and organized, or frustrating and offputting if you are not. You have a big need to connect to something spiritual or mystical in order to find more meaning in your life. Blending this with your recent focus on physical concerns will be ideal. Try not to project fantasies onto people and situations, as you may make more of them than they deserve, good or bad. An unusual attraction or discovery on the level of feelings can occur, possibly even from a dream, or a private longing is emphasized now.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

While the day holds creative promise, dear Libra, there can be some lack of clarity to deal with now, particularly related to what is expected of you and what you expect from others. Work and service are in strong focus, but it can be difficult dealing with routine matters if you’re not feeling motivated or directed. There is a lot going on behind the scenes and you may not always feel on top of your game as a result of this general distraction. While energy levels are less than ideal, personal attraction and emotional stimulation are strong now. Your intuition is highly stimulated and increased compassion can motivate you to help someone out or to provide a service. While attractions are strong today, some level of confusion is likely, and it can be difficult to accurately “read” people in your life at the moment. Similarly, while you might envision an exciting project today, it can be difficult knowing how to get it off the ground.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

You can bring strong people skills and unique creativity to the table today, dear Scorpio, particularly on a professional level. Your reputation can get a boost. Nevertheless, some confusion can surround your relations, attractions, and desires right now. Where you stand with friends or lovers may be a point of confusion, or you could be questioning your own feelings about someone. For some of you, this could be about a project, as you might be temporarily uninspired or questioning its viability. You could be see-sawing between fantasy and reality. It’s possible that someone isn’t being honest with you, but it’s also possible that you are deceiving yourself through wishful thinking. Romance or affectionate feelings can actually be draining today if you don’t know where you stand, but you are also likely to be especially amorous now with Venus and Mars coming to an alignment.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

While it’s a strong day for creativity and personal appeal, dear Sagittarius, you may not be feeling on solid ground today with a Sun-Neptune opposition in challenging aspect to your sign. If you resolve to simply go with the flow and accept that you may not need to know everything at this point in time, you’ll be far better off. Even so, listen to any signal that you have been ignoring your more spiritual needs. Confusing energies tend to surround family and career matters. While generally speaking this period is good for career and ambition, today you might be feeling a little insecure or concerned about family and personal matters. There can be vague concerns on the home front, or some temporary less-than-confident feelings experienced now. The day is better used for creative and imaginative undertakings. Adventure and play are in focus with Venus and Mars approaching an alignment in your adventure sector. Share your enthusiasm with others. Your powers of attraction are strong, but you might also be attracting hangers-on or confusing situations.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

Neptune opposing the Sun today can temporarily throw a veil over our perceptions, dear Capricorn. You may have felt that you were sailing along relatively smoothly, and now you could be questioning what to believe, and what to believe in. Distractions may not be more plentiful, but you could be more sensitive than usual to them now, and as a result, it can be a challenge to concentrate. Misinformation may be circulating, and there is a tendency for looping conversations that don’t really get you to where you want to go mentally. Be careful not to make a commitment or speak too soon or officially on a matter until the fog clears and until you are certain of the facts. Another influence with you today can also pull up unusual feelings and desires, and some of you could have a sudden urge to act upon hidden or previously buried desires and feelings. The temptation to keep important information from someone (an error of omission) can be strong. Similarly, try not to put too much faith in what you’re told for the time being, as there can be missing, and vital, information. Nevertheless, there is mysterious and sensual energy surrounding you, and meeting up with a past friend is possible now.



With Venus and Mars approaching an alignment today, dear Aquarius, there is spontaneous, creative, and desirous energy around you today. However, the Sun is opposing Neptune, challenging our perceptions, and this requires some caution when it comes to investing energy, time, or resources into iffy situations. Occurring across your resources sector, it’s important to avoid important financial transactions, lending, and possibly even borrowing. Boundaries could be crossed now, and it may be difficult to establish them clearly. Keep in mind that you are bound to bring out strong feelings and reactions in others whether you want to or not. There could be some form of letdown involved with a close relationship, but consider that this may bring you closer to a better understanding of someone, as true friendship is about accepting the real person, not only the image of a person or relationship. For some, a financial or ownership matter can be up in the air just for now. Try not to press for answers and resolve to pay more attention to your spiritual needs while protecting your material ones.



With the Sun and Neptune in opposition today, dear Pisces, it’s unlikely you are seeing people clearly and situations realistically. It’s equally as possible that others are not seeing you correctly, and it’s important not to encourage this. Ultimately, it works against you. There might also be confusion about where you stand with someone or how deep a commitment may be. You might also feel a little resentful if someone seems to be taking the lead or pushing something that you’re not ready for. If there is a letdown today, remind yourself that it’s better to attach yourself to dreams that lift your spirits than those that let you down. Venus and Mars are moving towards an alignment in your work and health sector, however, and this brings spontaneous, creative energy to your life in small ways.
You might be quite effective at combining work and play now. While desires are strong and seem quite urgent at times today, how to fulfill them is the tricky part right now!

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s likely that you and your partner have been in a phase of relationship rehab since late July, when Venus turned retrograde. If there were any weak links in your bond, it was a fantastic time to enter couples counseling or decide to work on things together in a more proactive way. Although a relationship that was meant to end probably did, if you and your mate decided it was worth working through then this week, you’ll begin to see a reward for your effort. Love wins.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You might not present yourself authentically to your mate on Monday. If this happens, and your partner calls you out, ask yourself why you felt the need to hide behind an image rather than reveal your true self. Another possibility, is that you’ll spend so much time painting a picture of perfection about your relationship, only to be disappointed when your partner cuts to the chase and points out exactly what is wrong. Don’t worry; the good news is that once you see it, you can certainly fix it.

On Tuesday, Venus will conjunct Mars in a heated embrace. Venus is flirting, and since she’s still retrograde she might even tease Mars a little too much. Whatever happens in your love life on this day will be hauntingly familiar … but oh so exciting!

Saturday, September 5: Sun trine Pluto

The Sun will trine Pluto on Saturday, and finally you’ll be in a position to make things happen. Instead of aimlessly floating around like you were on Monday, you’ll feel a surge of power giving you all the determination you need to succeed. If you have anything important going on this weekend, you can be sure that you’ll make a strong impression and no one will doubt your command!

Sunday, September 6: Venus Direct in Leo

The best part of the week however, is saved for Sunday when Venus turns direct after having been retrograde since July 25. Lovers everywhere will rejoice! is a Daily Insight Group Site

Your Weekly Karma Forecast: August 30 – September 5, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

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 30 – September 5, 2015

8/31 ~ Sun (ego) ~oppose~ Neptune (dissolution):

This can be a very confusing energy. You will be very sensitive to others and their needs and how they relate to your own. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn’t solve anything anyway. However, do not give in to the temptation of being “slick” either, that will only bring more challenges your way. You may want to give in to another person’s demands when you have a valid reason not to. Avoid playing the victim. Be honest and up-front with anyone demanding a confrontation at this time, that you would rather gather your thoughts and discuss things later (by then this energy will have passed) when you can articulate your side of things better. Be aware of deception – both on your part and/or the part of others (trying to deceive you). Your discernment is not its strongest under this influence so it is best to be still and quiet until the energy passes. Take this time to do some spiritual, inner work.

9/1 ~ Venus (love & beauty) ~conjunct~ Mars (passion): (2 of 3: 2.22.2015 & 11.2.2015)

This is our primary feminine (Venus) and masculine (Mars) energies merging in a potent way, arousing a need to cultivate powerful relationship (whether physical/sexual or relating/socializing with others). There is a strong need for approval (on one level) and affection (on another level) from others and if you are not interacting with human beings on some level, this energy can also activate your artist nature (Venus). This a perfect time to create something (project or relationship) that is seeded by a deep, authentic love.

9/5 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about yourself you can apply in the future. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain WILL backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.

Lady A’s Specialty of the Day – Get Lost Hex


Get Lost Hex


While this hex will definitely force the target to leave you alone, it also causes enough personal aggravation so that he or she is way too busy to bother anyone else.


Prepared poppet

Black wax, melted

Lost and Away Powder

Brown paper sack

Place the poppet in the sack and sprinkle liberally with Lost and Away Powder, saying:

Lost and away from me you go

As your life’s sprinkled with troubles, problems and woe.

Pour the melted wax on top of the poppet, and quickly douse with the powder again. (Do this before the wax sets up, as you want the powder to adhere to it.) As you sprinkle the powder, say:

Problems stick like black to crow

Like melted wax they ooze and flow,

And when you think they’re finally done,

More arrive with rise of Sun.

Bury the poppet in an area easily accessible to you but away from your home. To keep the hex active, visit the grave once each week and dust it with the powder.
