Get A Jump On Tomorrow,

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, October 22nd

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope
A sudden revision of plans may be necessary today as stability gives way to the pressure of changing circumstances when immovable Saturn crosses paths with irrepressible Uranus. Paradoxically, it’s impossible to expect the unexpected. A surprise may trigger deep conflict as rational Mercury squares passionate Pluto. Luckily, the quirky Aquarius Moon enables us to shift directions quickly once it becomes obvious that we cannot stick to our old ways.

 

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
Nothing is to be gained by letting your anger distract you from what you need to say today. Even if your discomfort seems to be approaching a flash point, you don’t have to automatically throw a burning match into the emotional tinder. The current situation is crazy enough without you adding to the volatility. Bite your tongue, take a few deep breaths and put on a happy face. Then, state your case as gently as possible. Remaining calm, cool and collected enables you to deliver your message with the greatest impact.

 

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
You’re tempted to take risks today that you might normally never consider. It’s nearly impossible to contain your energy while steady Saturn is at odds with unstable Uranus. You’re uncharacteristically restless and may even be on the prowl for mischief. Acknowledging the intensity of your desires now empowers you to handle them with grace and maturity; denying your feelings only causes them to grow stronger. Strive to be unconventional without turning your life upside down in the process.

 

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
You could be in for quite a wonderful surprise today as something totally unexpected grabs your attention. However, don’t move too fast if you feel a knot in the bottom of your stomach. What you see is not the whole story and trusting your intuition can save you from yourself. Ultimately, it’s not a good idea to take the bait unless you are ready to go on a ride to points unknown. Stop moving for a minute, block out the noise and re-establish your center. The answer will be crystal clear once you listen to your heart.

 

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
You’re obsessed with your ambitions today and already have a serious plan in mind to reach your goals. However, expressing your needs up front may be out of character for you. Even if you tend to be shy, you currently have the potential to rattle everyone’s cage by acting impulsively. Don’t spend too much energy resisting if your emotions are carrying you into new territory. A wonderful experience might be just around the next bend if you have the courage to take a leap of faith and go there.

 

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
Think twice before jumping into a new friendship or partnership today. Unfortunately, it may be tricky to see how deep the water actually is from your current vantage point on the shore. Even if you’re an accomplished swimmer, the emotional currents can shift quickly now, making it challenging to predict which direction you’re heading. Luckily, you could build a strong foundation for a relationship if you just remember to proceed with caution when sharing your heart. Dipping your toe in the shallow end to test the temperature is a good place to start.

 

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
You long to express your ambitions creatively today, but it can be a scary proposition if you feel threatened by someone’s harsh criticism. You might believe you’re being unnecessarily singled out, yet your immediate reaction may be overstated. Fortunately, you’re in a much stronger position now than you think and there’s no need to defend your motives or fight back with your sharp tongue. Just follow your original plan and others will applaud when they see you in action. The proof is in the pudding.

 

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
Although you may be feeling on edge today because everyone is busy pursuing their own interests, you have a natural ability to cope gracefully as the airy Aquarius Moon harmonizes with the Sun in peace-seeking Libra. Nevertheless, people might act irresponsibly when it comes to meeting their obligations; thankfully, you’re repeatedly able to reestablish your balance with ease. Don’t be afraid to make an important decision now, even if you wish you could keep your options open longer. Whether or not you can rely on anyone else, your instincts will lead you in the right direction.

 

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
You wish you could fast-forward reality to get through this rocky part of your journey. However, your life is in better shape now than you realize, even if you’re having trouble shaking off free-floating anxiety. It’s just that you crave more emotional stability and the current uncertainty may trigger unusual feelings of helplessness or fear today. It’s understandable to feel uneasy when your relationships or finances are in transition. Thankfully, focusing on the myriad of possibilities ahead enables you to be more positive in the present moment.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
Your social life is in the midst of turmoil today, yet your inner voice continues to quietly sing, “Everything’s going to be alright.” Unfortunately, you may be strangely reluctant to listen to your optimistic instincts when it comes to your relationships. However, circumstances could spiral out of control if you allow yourself to lose hope. Maintain your spiritual equilibrium now; the strength of your convictions will gently lead you through the maze of confusion. Success is yours as long as you keep the faith.

 

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
You are deeply committed to the long haul when it comes to your career. Obstacles that pop up in your path only increase your resolve to succeed. But you may wonder now if you made a bad decision along the way, especially if you’re not climbing the proverbial ladder as fast as you expected. Nevertheless, continue your disciplined approach to your daily routine without making major adjustments today; your sincere efforts will begin to bear fruit very soon. Perseverance is your secret to success.

 

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
It seems as if lightning is striking all around you, yet you’re not in any immediate danger now. Remain emotionally available in your relationships, even if you feel the impulse to isolate yourself from others. Ultimately, your security derives from facing your fears about being alone. All you need to do is accept the current ambiguity along with your independence. There’s no reason to fix anything today; just enjoy the electricity in the air and do your best to stay out of trouble.

 

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
You might try to shirk off the responsibility for your current situation, but it’s not helpful to blame the crisis of the moment on external circumstances. There’s a lot more going on than anyone realizes; it’s just that you may not know which feelings to trust. Rather than looking to someone else for your answers, tap into your inner fountain of wisdom. Let your emotions come and go without attachment. When you can find your peace in the calm eye of the hurricane, the storm will quickly pass.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, October 21st

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

You can be filled with a desire to make changes today, dear Aries, particularly to your routines, work, or health. While not everything is likely to go as you plan, it’s a fine day for recognizing the need for change in general. Temper your enthusiasm with some realism, and you’re in the best shape to take on projects and plans that will truly improve your life. For some, unexpected events can lead to the need to rearrange your schedule or take charge of a work and health matter. Work and daily habits require an innovative approach.

Taurus

Taurus

This is a powerful, or at the very least exciting, time for romantic appeal, desires, personal expression, and creative ideas, dear Taurus. Ideas or attractions can emerge almost as if out of the blue. You can be filled with a desire to express your talents, artistic abilities, or even your feelings for someone. You can enjoy a blast of courage when it comes to going after what you want. A sudden meeting with an exciting friend or a new attraction can occur now. Not all desires emerging now are likely to stick, but it can be an important day for discovering needs or wants that you haven’t acknowledged in the past.

Gemini

Gemini

This is an important time to make improvements and changes to your family life or in your relationships with loved ones, dear Gemini. Opening up, communicating more, and improving domestic conditions can be among the changes you make now. Be cautious about making huge changes if desires come on suspiciously quickly, but keep yourself open to new methods and directions for handling old problems. You may get a chance to deal with an ongoing issue that has been dividing you with close friends and acquaintances. Focus on finding a balance and avoid the mindset that you have to choose one over the other.

Cancer

Cancer

There can be interesting new developments, ideas, and interests today, dear Cancer, with Venus and Mars in your sector of communications connecting with erratic, progressive Uranus by parallel. While you may want to watch for impulsive speech, this can be a fun time for discovery. New avenues for expressing yourself, getting around, or connecting can open now. Information or news coming in could steer you towards making important changes. There may be some frustration to deal with when it comes to getting better organized, but consider that the more you tidy up your routines, the more peace of mind you’ll enjoy, which can give you the chance to explore new options and interests.

Leo

Leo

This can be a time of new developments or unusual events surrounding business or financial matters, dear Leo, and of innovative new ideas or recognition. While sudden impulses to spend should probably be tamed, this is a good time to consider new methods, technologies, or products and how these can improve your life, and particularly business matters. There can be a subtle new direction that you’re heading in due to ideas or news coming to you today. Desires that come on a little too suddenly may not be winners or they might not stick, but if you can distinguish between true intuition and restless stirrings, you can tap into some exciting things now.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

There is a lot of energy with you today, dear Virgo, and some of it is on the impulsive side. You need to weigh at least some sides of a situation before pushing forward. Pace yourself and avoid recklessness in order to prevent mixups. Pay attention to flashes of insight, but be wise in your choices. Play with ideas before putting them into motion, particularly if they come out of the blue. This can be a day of interesting synchronicity or surprise. This may be a time to deal with issues of power dynamics in a family relationship, or with debts and money matters that have been causing you stress.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

There could be something resurfacing today that seems out of the blue, dear Libra, but that may be an important reminder to tie up a loose end from the past. Impulses are strong, and desires can come on with great force, and they’re likely to do with something private or behind closed doors with twelfth house energy strong in your life right now. Consider consequences, but if you need to break out of a bad habit or a frustrating circumstance, this electric energy might give you the push to do so. This can be an interesting day for insight in a relationship, and personal appeal is strong.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

This can be a day of a few surprises or sudden discoveries, dear Scorpio. The need to effect change comes to the sector of your solar chart that rules your friendships and group associations, as well as your hopes and wishes for the future. Surprising events surrounding a friend can occur today; but this energy can also stimulate a new idea or plan for the future as well. You could do well to discover a way to manage a chaotic schedule or inattention to important routine. Simplifying and organizing your daily routines can help you in other areas of life, and can help you to think more clearly about money matters. Your heart is with your home today, but friends and networking cannot be ignored now.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

There can be surprising events and feelings stimulated today, dear Sagittarius. There can be sudden urges to break free from restrictive circumstances, which can be very positive if these urges give you the courage to make constructive changes. Strong-arming from authority figures may not be tolerated right now; career changes can occur. Business or career path ideas coming to you now are unusual, progressive, and innovative. Reacting and acting from the heart are vastly different things, and you’ll be more successful if you honor your instincts. If you’re divided over whether to stick to tradition or to break out with a new plan, try to remind yourself that you may not need to choose between the two – you could do both with a compromise.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

You can be itching to do something different, new, and possibly a little adventurous or outside of the routine, dear Capricorn. Energies today might nudge you towards an important discovery or an exciting new interest. There can also be a desire to write or learn a new subject. While new interests can be exciting now, avoid throwing out old ones or making sweeping decisions based on them, as they may not have staying power. However, they may very well stick, so don’t discard anything just yet. Entertain ideas now and consider different angles. Good conversations can occur today that help ground you.

Aquarius

Aquarius

There is innovative or surprising energy with you today, dear Aquarius, particularly surrounding intimate relationships or debts to others, either emotional or material. You may want to clear something up, or eliminate excess baggage. Impulses, desires, and sudden feelings can occur now that might initially confuse you, but the desire to make important changes and to put certain limiting conditions behind you can be empowering. Be flexible today, but also consider waiting to make the bigger decisions. The Moon transiting your sign all day adds more impulsiveness to the already impatient mix! Emotional desires seem like urgent needs. Others are drawn to you now, and personal magnetism is strong.

Pisces

Pisces

There can be sudden needs or desires awakened today, dear Pisces, likely involving a relationship. These can prompt you to make changes, but it’s important to work from true instincts rather than sudden impulses or reactions. Expect the unexpected when it comes to others today, and welcome the courage that overcomes you when it comes to making connections or doing something independently. A new development with a special person in your life can prompt a detour or a change, but can also be quite welcome. You may feel a little restrained by the need to pay special attention to work or responsibilities, but if you find a good balance, you might come up with new ideas that you can put into effect when you have more time to do so.

The Witches Magick for the 21st Day of the Blood Moon – White Light Meditation

goth fantasy woman
White Light Meditation

 

Before you go to sleep, turn on soft instrumental music. Lie back and get comfortable. Slowly inhale, filling your insides with air. Hold your breath momentarily before exhaling until all the air has left your lungs. Do several more deep breaths, each time becoming more relaxed and aware of your inner sensation.

Let your mind move like a spotlight searching out any negative energy that you may be harboring from the day. Gather up all these troubled feelings and move them downward into your legs and feet. With your mind, open up the drain at the tips of your big toes, and begin letting all those negative feelings drain out of you.

Now plug up the hole in your feet, and open a larger hole located on the top of your head. Streams of white light pour into the crown of your head and being pouring down into your throat and heart areas. Soon your entire body is filled with this white light that can transform into anything you need from courage to love. As you drift to sleep, imagine being filled with this white light.

WOTC Footnote – Why Doing Black Magick Isn’t Such A Good Idea

goth fantasy woman
Why Doing Black Magick Isn’t Such A Good Idea

 

Maybe you’re wondering, why not use magick to put someone who’s wronged you in his place? It’s tempting, for sure. Except remember that in the world of magick, whatever you do returns to you like a boomerang. Indeed, many magicians say it comes back magnified threefold. That’s a good reason for keeping your thoughts focused on positive stuff. It’s also why usually the best way to get what you want— especially on days when everything seems to be going wrong— is to bless instead of curse.

Let’s Talk Witch – Magick Isn’t Just Black and White

Woman

Magick Isn’t Just Black and White

 

Magick is ethically neutral, just like electricity is neutral. Both magick and electricity can be used to help or to harm. Magick is simply the intentional use of energy. Casting a magick spell is simply a means to an end. A witch uses willpower to direct energy toward a particular goal. Her intention is what colors the magick white, black, or gray.

You’ve probably heard people describe themselves as white witches, meaning they uphold the “do no harm” rule. The truth, though, is that most magick isn’t black or white, it’s gray— including the magick most self-proclaimed white witches perform. That doesn’t mean it’s bad or harmful, however. In fact, the spells of most witches and magicians fall into the gray area.

White, Black, or Gray?

Not every witch will agree with the following definitions of white, black, and gray magick. However, these guidelines can help you sort out the differences:

White magick’s purpose is to further spiritual growth, by strengthening your connection with the divine realm and/ or gaining wisdom from a higher source.

Black magick intends to harm or manipulate another person, or to interfere with his/ her free will.

Every other kind of magick is a shade of gray.

This means that if you do a spell to get a better job or to attract a lover you’re operating in the gray zone. Nothing wrong with that. It’s easy, though, to stray from the path and inadvertently cast a questionable spell— especially when you’re having a bad day or dealing with difficult people. Let’s say a coworker is a real pain in the neck and you do a spell to get even with her for a dirty deed. Your revenge may seem justifiable, but it’s still black magick.

Here’s another little-known fact: Most black magick isn’t performed by evil sorcerers or wicked wizards, it’s done by ordinary people who don’t even realize what they’re up to. Have you ever cursed some jerk for stealing your parking space or cutting in front of you in a long supermarket line? That’s black magick, too.

Should Give You A Quick Heads Up

We are expecting another Fire Marshall, insurance adjuster and a man we have called for an estimate to show up at any minute. We are going to keep going till they get here. When they do arrive we will leave the net shortly. The Fire Marshall wants to talk to some of the other ladies. The insurance adjuster wants to survey the damage. Apparently the insurance company didn’t like their first adjuster’s estimate so they are sending another one. The last person is one we called because we need at least two estimates on the work to be done. Just as soon as they all leave, we will be right back.

Thought you should know, I didn’t want you to think we were burning down the building again. Now that you know, lets get this show rolling again.

Love ya,

Lady A
