If You Were Born Today, November 13

You are wise beyond your years, and your eyes reflect this wisdom. The outward expression of your personality is strong and determined, although this hides a very emotional and sensitive nature. Success may come later in life, simply because in youth, you are inclined to more daydreaming than action. You may come across as sarcastic and even tough, but you are a thoughtful and kind person with a love of knowledge, justice, and truth. You also have a well-developed sense of humor. 

Famous people born today: Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Mulligan, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Noth, Garry Marshall, Gerard Butler, Frances Conroy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, November 13th

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

This can be a great day for both enjoying your work and getting work done, dear Aries. It’s also strong for cooperative efforts, even if at least part of the time you’re a little more productive moving at your own, independent pace. There can be enjoyment of uncovering a mystery, analyzing motives, or discovering information. Investigation and analysis are your forte today! With Venus now in your partnership sector, you’re generally finding it easier to attract support or cooperation from others. Today, Venus connects nicely with Saturn, and this can point to attracting solid help, advice, or a friend that is not only a fairweather one for some of you. Mentoring may even come into play today. Stable and supportive relationships can help you reach your goals. There can be much satisfaction from seeing others realistically.

Taurus

Taurus

This can be a satisfying day for good news or nice exchanges and communications with others, dear Taurus. Conversations can lift your mood, and advice circulating tends to be positive and reasonable. You can be especially attracted to matters of the mind or shared interests with others right now, and your approach to interactions and relationships tends to be winning. Socially, you could feel that improvising is best, but when it comes to practical affairs, traditional methods tend to be the ones that work for you today. There can be solid ideas for getting work done well, and useful input from others. You could be appreciated for your reliability and your natural common sense, particularly by coworkers.

Gemini

Gemini

There is pleasant and productive energy with you today, dear Gemini, particularly for coming to satisfying agreements, cooperation from others, and work or health-related information and methods. You’ll feel especially satisfied if you can get an area of your life organized, and you’re more likely to be able to benefit from others pitching in. Ideas birthed now tend to be viable in the long term, and useful. There can be fruitful interactions with family or advances with a domestic matter or project. While ideas are good now, actions are speaking volumes, particularly with a partner or special friend. You can enjoy a sense that you’re accepting others and situations for what they are, minus unreasonable expectations, and that others are extending you the same courtesy.

Cancer

Cancer

This is a potentially excellent day for relating to others in satisfying ways, dear Cancer, with Venus, the planet of harmony, in pleasant contact with Saturn, which is your partnership ruler. This points to a more realistic view of others and a sense that you know where you stand. You are attracted to maturity and reliability now, and you’ll find that people are generally cooperative. Familiarity is an aphrodisiac right now. New plans or ideas birthed now can have legs to stand on – they’re likely to stick. Ideas are creative and fun, as well as useful. It’s a good time to make a small gesture towards someone – to reach out and connect or simply extend a communication of support or interest.

Leo

Leo

This can be a wonderful time for connecting on a feeling level, dear Leo, but also to further your practical goals as well. You could find that you’re establishing long-term ties with people now. There can be some focus on memories and nostalgia, or stories of the past that are especially enjoyable to share. Family or home-related decisions tend to be strong right now, and creative ideas are solid and realistic. Getting a stronger sense of where you stand in a relationship can be felt as very positive right now. Purchases tend to take into account the long term, and your sense of what will and won’t work for you is stronger than usual. There is generally good energy for creating something worthwhile and useful.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You are especially sharp and insightful today, dear Virgo, and you might come into an opportunity to show what you know. Problem areas are relatively easy to resolve or smooth over through talking, writing, or studying now. You’re likely to pick up important or mood-lifting information, and more able to express your ideas creatively and positively, making it easier for others to get on board or feel inspired as well. This can also be a strong time for family pursuits, purchases, activities, and improvements. You are seeing things for their realistic value, and although you’re inclined to entertain some rather big ideas, your common sense also comes into strong play. It’s a good time for purchases of practical or useful items, and for developing business ideas. It’s also a fine time for interviews or presentations, as you’ll feel that others are responding well to you, or that they seem to put their faith in you right now.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

You’re likely to be receiving positive reviews or feedback today, dear Libra. People are putting their faith in you or seeing your more reliable, steadfast side and appreciating it. You can draw upon common sense as well as past experience in order to make sound decisions or draw important conclusions. You are able to see beyond the details, but the details are still very much in view as you do, and this is a relatively uncommon, positive position. There can be practical conversations and useful advice circulating. You might stumble upon a way to make your life better, or to gain more peace of mind. Spiritual connections can be made now that help round out your view of a situation.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

This is another sharp day for decision making, dear Scorpio – you’ve been having quite a few of those recently! It’s also a time when others seem cooperative and reliable, and when good advice is circulating. You can be particularly effective at using communication in some way to help others or to further your personal plans and goals. You may also be given the benefit of the doubt or might strengthen a friendship. You can take comfort in learning the truth or reality of a situation, as this gives you the best tools for making plans going forward. It’s also a good time to take care of loose ends, particularly on financial levels.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

This is a strong time for coming together with someone to negotiate or reach an agreement, dear Sagittarius, or for feeling that others are cooperating and generally supportive of you and your ideas. You might be drawing upon your past or information that was previously dismissed or hidden. If you need to make sense of something from the past, this is a good time for doing so. This can be a wonderful time for attending to responsibilities or for making an effort to help someone, as your actions are noticed and accounted for today. When it comes to a social matter, slowing down and building or displaying patience is the way to go! Conservative moves are favored with friends, while an optimistic, “bigger” approach in business may be more appropriate today.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This can be a great day for connecting and learning through your interactions with others, dear Capricorn. There is a general spirit of acceptance and willingness to cooperate. There can be happy learning experiences, a sense that conversations make a big difference or improvement, and success with  and benefits from networking. Make a point of putting worries aside today – the cosmos support this. You can feel more serene or balanced today. You could arrive at rather simple solutions to questions or problems that seemed complex before today. Facing up to a matter that has caused you stress can be very much the same way – you can feel good about putting something behind you. Good advice from behind the scenes or sudden awareness of or access to wisdom you already had but had forgotten can figure strongly now, in a helpful way.

Aquarius

Aquarius

This can be a strong day for coming to sharp decisions and conclusions, dear Aquarius. Strategies about long-term goals, career, reputation, professional life, and life planning can be quite successful now. Socially, it’s a good time for showing your affection or loyalty through your actions. Reliability is appreciated. Instincts for both business and social matters are very strong today, giving this day much potential for satisfaction. Teaching and sharing ideas can be fruitful, and so can some self study. There is a stronger sense for what is truly valuable, minus things that can blur decision making, such as wishful thinking. Agreements and purchases are more likely to be satisfying today.

Pisces

Pisces

This can be a great day for sharing ideas and beliefs with others, dear Pisces. There can be a nice feeling of camaraderie, and pairing up with someone to brainstorm or in order to reach a decision or agreement can be quite successful now. Cooperation is easy today, and you quite like it that way! While ideas can be big today, when it comes to your practical affairs, you are appreciating the simple, honest truth. It’s a strong day for getting along with those in authority, such as parents or employers, and for coming to a real sense for what is attainable and what may only be a pipe dream. It’s also good for interviews or taking tests. There can be a new level of faith or understanding reached with someone special.

Your Love Horoscope for the Weekend of November 13 – 15

 

 

Weekend Love Horoscope

November 13-15: Slow and steady

Maria DeSimone

 

A friendly sextile between love planet Venus and stable Saturn on Friday will punctuate the weekend. When it comes to love, you’ll be certain that the one you’re with is the one you can rely on through thick and thin.

Once the Moon enters Capricorn on Saturday night, the rest of the weekend will keep up the theme of a slow and steady approach in matters of the heart. This might not be the kind of romantic fireworks weekend for you and your partner, but it’ll certainly leave you feeling certain that you’re loved. If you’re single, this is a great weekend to spend time alone figuring out your must-haves and deal-breakers in terms of a relationship.

This Weekend’s Romantic Rating*

* Heart ratings are based on the lunar cycle. They range from low to full, with low indicating a rocky weekend for romance and full indicating plenty of passionate potential.

Magickal Essentials – Goddess Charm

Friday 13th Comments

Goddess Charm

 

If you don’t feel comfortable wearing a pentacle necklace—because you’re still in the broom closet or maybe you just don’t like jewelry—you can always make this goddess charm and wear or carry it instead.

Take a small white pouch (it can be leather, silk, or cotton), and place into it a piece of moonstone, a bit of vervain if you have some, and a bead or symbol that is shaped like a crescent moon. You can just draw a moon on a slip of paper if you’d rater. Then consecrate the charm to stand as your symbol of the goddess and slip it into a purse or pocket, or around your neck. May the goddess always be with you.

The WItches Magick for the 13th Day of the Snow Moon – Starlight, Star Bright Spell


Friday 13th Comments

Starlight, Star Bright Spell

 

Cast this spell to fill yourself with bright star power.

At midnight, look out your window or doorway at te stars for a few minutes. Then draw a magick circle and call in the elements. Light a white candle, dedicating it to the stars. Say:

Starlight, Star bright, you are the star I see tonight.

I wish I may, I wish I might, be forever divine starlight.

Now, inhale deeply and imagine a burst of starlight filling your lungs. Holding your breath causes the light to expand and move throughout your body. When you exhale, any negative feelings and thoughts are released through your breath.

Imagine you are a star whose light keeps growing brighter and brighter. You are a beacon in the night sky, shining as an example for all to see. You are making every effort to be the person you purport to be. Your ideal and real are continually moving closer to being one.

When you are done, bid farewell to the elements, pull up the circle, and allow the candle to burn down safely.

Let’s Talk Witch – Household Omens and Portents

Friday 13th Comments

Let’s Talk Witch – Household Omens and Portents

 

Let your furniture predict your future? The idea may sound strange, but for centuries-from Babylonian times and even earlier-household objects and occurrences have been prized for glimpses of future events.

Many of these ancient ideas are odd, alien or amusing, but they do reflect the sacredness of all existence in early times. You could trudge over to the seer or stand in line to visit the Oracle at Delphi-or you could watch your furniture. niture.

For instance, if you are rocking in your rocking chair and it starts to move along the floor, company will show on your porch before nighttime. A chair that rocks by itself signifies the imminent arrival of bad news.

If you knock your chair over when rising from the table, it is a sign that you lied while seated there. Turning a chair on one leg so that it pivots usually presages a household hold fight.

Any large piece of wooden furniture-such as a wardrobe, robe, table or chest-that starts to dry out and crack is signaling a change in the weather.

If you are dreaming away one night and suddenly feel like the world’s falling, perhaps one of the slats of your bed has fallen out. If so, don’t worry; this is a sign that riches will soon be coming your way. Also concerning beds, climbing out of bed over the footboard when first rising in the morning ing portends a fortunate day.

The kitchen has its share of portents, too. If apples burst while baking in the oven, good news is on the way for the cook. Eggs that crack while boiling are a sign that visitors are expected.

Many people around the world abhor Americans’ bland, precooked rice. Real rice sticks to itself; it has a different ferent texture. When this type of rice forms a ring around the edge of the pot while cooking, the cook will become rich.

Knocking over the sugar bowl is another sign of money, probably harkening back to the days when sugar was prohibitively expensive. Spilling pepper signifies a coming fight, while upsetting the salt shaker is a wellknown known signal of trouble. Throw a pinch of pepper or salt over the left shoulder to avoid the hex.

Accidentally mixing up salt and sugar in a recipe is a sweet sign, regardless of the taste of the finished dish. It presages good news. Forgetting to add spices while cooking ing not only decreases the flavor of your food, it also signifies trouble ahead. Remedy this by adding the spices as soon as possible.

Bubbles in your morning coffee presage money. If they are near the side of the cup you drink from, the money will come soon; if on the far side, it will come more slowly.

If you drink tea, look into your cup. Floating tea leaves signify money coming your way. The tea leaves themselves, selves, of course, can be read to foretell the future. Get a good book on the subject or simply look at the patterns the leaves make and let your psychic powers flow.

There are some kitchen portents of approaching rain. If you must add a lot of water to boiling food, showers will descend. If the coffeepot boils over more often than usual, this is also a sign of impending precipitation.

Many omens emerge at the dining table. Crossing knives while setting the table foretells long journeys, while a piece of bread falling from someone’s hand means a beggar will soon be knocking at the door. (This doesn’t necessarily mean a ramshackle, bearded bum, though; it could be a friend who’s low on cash.)

Spilling water on the tablecloth, by right of sympathetic pathetic magic, indicates that rain is on the way. If you drop a glass and it doesn’t break, this is proof that you have friends who would go through fire for you. Silverware dropped at the table indicates the impending ing arrival of a visitor-a fork represents a man, a spoon a woman. Dropping a knife also means a visitor-if the blade sticks into the floor.

Animals are frequently watched to predict the future. A bird flying into a house for no apparent reason is a sign of good luck and fortune for the owner (but perhaps not for the bird). It may also portend news from a distance.

Swallows settling in at your home mean that it will never want for luck. The same is true of martins. If you hear a mockingbird while falling asleep, good luck will be yours.

Snakes were once kept as household guardians, and a snake in the home is still considered lucky. If a snake crawls up your doorsteps, it may mean that someone from another country will enter your house. A snake in the garden also brings good fortune.

Wild animal tracks in the snow, completely encircling the house, are another sign of good luck.

Seeing a spider in the house in the morning, or anytime, time, is good luck; killing one brings bad luck. A spider or bee entering your home through an open window indicates cates news on the way.

Doors opening by themselves signal the impending arrival of company. Cracks in the ceiling and soot dropping from the chimney indicate bad weather ahead. A falling picture presages a journey for someone in the family.

If a broom drops across a doorway, you will soon go on a journey. (Make sure to pick it up quickly; don’t step over it.) When your cupboard doors are left open, people will gossip about you.

If your garden gate bangs open and shut at night, you will have many visitors the next day. And finally, if the doorbell bell rings and you don’t answer it, you will lose a friend. (This was probably invented by traveling salesmen and bill collectors.)

Juno – The Feronia

Feronia was a Goddess of spring flowers and woods (also associated with Flora) and, although this day was named for her, it became a day of recognition for juno, Minera, and Jupiter. The celebration took place on the Capitoline Hill where all three were enshrined. Juno was the sister-wife of Jupiter, forming a triad with Minerva. The festival would have included an animal sacrifice and an evening torch light processional.
