The powerful Owl easily makes its way through the darkest night on muted wings. Often it is only their haunting call echoing across the land that lets us know The Owl is near.

Meaning: This rune symbolizes your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.
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.

The Wheel of Fortune
The Wheel of Fortune represents that aspect of life that is directed by forces and events we may not understand or even be aware of. In short, The Wheel deals with chance—those occurrences that manage to alter even the most structured of lives, usurp man’s “best laid plans.” While the effects of The Wheel are unpredictable, the outcome is always change; sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. Our path through life is never a ride down a perfectly straight highway. Sometimes we may even experience hairpin turns or complete reversals of direction. The Wheel of Fortune is strong reminder that despite our plans, the Universe has its own agenda from which we cannot escape participation.
When The World or The Fool are among your personal cards, the influence of The Wheel of Fortune may be increased. Having The Hierophant or The Emperor in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Wheel of Fortune.
The Magus is the physical embodiment of decisive action based upon knowledge and aimed squarely at specific goals. While firmly set in the material world, he none-the-less has a powerful spiritual connection as well. His knowledge, wisdom and skill are all encompassing. He is complete. His power as a creator is unmatched on our earthly plane. He is self-aware and unafraid to act. His enormous strength gives him the freedom to act as he chooses. However, responsibility comes with that freedom. Because he is not bound to the restraints of others he must choose how to act. The question that always lies before him is should he act morally, or forsake ethics for personal gain.
When The Chariot is among your personal cards, the influence of The Magus may be increased. Having The Empress or Hanged Man in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Magus.
Like The Sun, The World brings good blessings. The World appears where all is in balance. It allows you to act effectively not only as an individual but as a member of a group too. The World promises contentment, fulfillment and completeness to those under its influence. It doesn’t guarantee there will not be moments of strife or discord in your life, but it does indicate that your trials and tribulations will be overcome; that ultimately you will know inner-peace and contentment. The World suggests you have found or will find your place in our Universe—that place where all is as it should be.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your solar ninth house, dear Aries, where it will transit until December 9th. This is a supportive aspect for communications and transportation in general. You express yourself with more enthusiasm, and perhaps more importantly, with increased faith. This goes over very well with others, leading you to feel especially “heard” and reinforced. This cycle stirs your curiosity and stimulates your desire to learn new things. You have a stronger desire to reach out to others or to expand your knowledge. Today can bring some complicated feelings or interactions, but what emerges now can be an important clue to what you fear most. If relationship dynamics seem out of balance, resolve to make adjustments so that you and a partner or friend feel empowered by your connection. Try your best to replace fear with love in order to heal yourself and strengthen your relationships. Worries about work may be unfounded. Watch for a tendency to go to extremes that interferes with healthy interactions.
The planet of communication, Mercury, begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, Taurus. You are not as concerned with being heard and understood during this cycle as much as you are interested in understanding the workings of people and situations around you at a deeper level. It’s a good time for bringing up typically tricky topics with a special someone. In fact, you might have some especially intimate or unusual conversations during this cycle that lasts until December 9th. There is good energy for exploring some of your own fears or negative attitudes, and it’s also a strong time for financial planning. Today, there can be a lot going on under the surface of things, however, and there is a tendency to express ourselves in indirect ways, which can be destructive or simply frustrating. An old hurt or resentment can be stirred or triggered. Rather than letting it rule your behavior, examine what’s emerging now and try to put it behind you. While entertaining intense emotions is perfectly fine, dwelling on something that you don’t intend to, or can’t, change is not going to do you any good. It may be difficult to do, but letting go of a particular stance or desire to be right can be the best thing for you and for your relationships now.
Mercury enters your relationship sector today, dear Gemini, and will continue to transit this solar house until December 9th. This brings favorable energy for opening up the airways of communication with a partner, good friend, or even a counselor. During this cycle, decision-making feels better when done with someone else rather than solo. Even if you’re not following their advice, you’re likely to enjoy hearing other points of view before coming to a conclusion. You’re heading towards a very strong period for partnering with the Sun soon following Mercury into your relationship sector. Today, you might experience an intense attraction or impulses that come from a deep place, or you could be reminded of a difficult time or complicated feelings. Relationships may not be straightforward now, and you could sense a hidden agenda or emotional traps in some of your interactions. Be careful that you’re not holding onto something only because you fear letting go. Unhealthy attachments may become clear today, and while this can feel a little uncomfortable, it also brings things into the light so that you can manage them rather than allow them to control you. Avoid manipulative tactics and those using them.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your work and health sector, Cancer, and this transit stimulates your inclination to organize, research, and learn. You may be especially interested in health and nutrition topics during this cycle that lasts until December 9th, and you’re likely to make lists of things that need to be done. This trend will grow even stronger once Sun moves into the same sector in two days. It’s a great time for ironing out the details of your life, but taken too far, you could be fretting or stressing over less important things and failing to see the bigger picture in the process. Look for ways to keep busy and improve your skills. Today, tricky energy is with us, particularly with close relationships. Interactions can feel guarded or you could sense that someone is either holding back or trying to control or direct you, which can be frustrating. Those close to you can be very touchy and sensitive now. Focus on breaking out of old patterns of relating that haven’t been very successful.
The planet of communication, Mercury, begins transiting your romance and creativity sector today, Leo, and will continue to influence this area of your solar chart until December 9th. This cycle can stimulate an increased need for communication and activities or mental stimulation with romantic partners, or for some, with your children. Alternatively, it’s a time for expressing yourself with more flair and doing a little healthy showing off with what you know. You might even feel that you’re thinking more creatively than usual and should take advantage of this time to express yourself. The Sun will follow and enter this same sector of your chart in two days, stimulating even stronger interest in romance, hobbies, children, and leisure/gaming time. This is a period when you and your ideas are generally received positively. Today, there can be some tension interfering in your relationships and communications, however. Your words may be taken the wrong way, and even the simplest of communications can be laced with sarcasm or anger. If you observe this happening, try to detach yourself from the situation and move back into it once you gain some perspective. It’s all too easy for someone or something to trigger vulnerable areas of your psyche today and early tomorrow.
The planet of communication, Mercury, which happens also to be your planetary ruler, is now moving through your home and family sector, dear Virgo. In just two days, the Sun will move into this same sector. This cycle that lasts until December 9th stimulates increased activity and communications in your home environment and/or with family members. In a worldly sense, you may not be at your very best when it comes to expressing your ideas and garnering support for them, but on a personal level, you are communicating with more ease and pleasure. You may be giving a lot of thought to what’s best for you and your family in the coming weeks. Today, tricky energy is with us, particularly when it comes to the handling of money and relationship dynamics. There can be a possessive streak to you now, and this more likely a symptom of something that runs deeper than the matter at hand. Fear of not having control over your life can lead you to hold on to things, people, and situations. Consciously allowing yourself to let go, even a little, can be cathartic now. Worries about money may or may not be sound, but if they don’t motivate yourself to handle matters, then you’re wasting your energy.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your communications sector, Libra, where it feels right at home! It’s a good time for expressing yourself verbally and in written form, as well as for learning, studies, and socializing. While it’s not the best time for focusing and concentrating on any one particular subject, you can be a sort of jack of all trades now. Because Mercury rules your privacy sector, it’s also a time when you can express yourself on secret or private matters more readily. This cycle lasts until December 9th. In just two days, the Sun will also enter this sector of your chart, and your curiosity will increase further. The general pace of your daily life is also set to pick up. Today, energy is tricky for relationships. Venus, your ruler, is in your sign, and this can bring you a lot of admiring attention. However, it clashes with Pluto, and this can stir up insecurities and fears, or some conflict in your domestic life. If you feel that people are trying to manipulate you, or that you need to resort to manipulation in order to get your way, examine things a little more closely. Work on your part of the problem and understand that you can’t control others, and make it clear that you need to be dealt with directly.
Today’s energies are a little tricky, dear Scorpio, with your own ruler, Pluto, in difficult aspect with Venus and later the Sun. You could feel slighted by others or not appreciated for what you do. Feelings of discontent can lead to manipulative or disruptive behavior if you’re not careful. A tendency to dwell on the past can interfere with healthy interactions in the present. Controlling a conversation or persuading someone to believe something can be temptations now, but won’t lead to improvement. It’s probably better to address a difficult area head on rather than let it fester. Be kinder to yourself by letting a matter go and moving on – this can in fact be quite cathartic. The planet of communication, Mercury, begins its transit of your finances and values sector today, and will continue to influence this area of your solar chart until December 9th. In just two days, the Sun will move into this same sector. This pulls your attention to your practical affairs. Rational, logical Mercury can help you see your finances in a different way, and stimulate new ideas about making and saving money. Your style of communication is less flashy with this transit, and your mind often turns to matters revolving around ownership, comfort, and resources.
Tricky energy is with us today and tomorrow, dear Sagittarius, and for you, it’s more likely to interfere with your relationships with friends or associates. There is a general tendency to try to control others or manipulate our way to our goals, which should be avoided. Someone or a situation could trigger a vulnerable feeling now, and it would be wise to aim to understand yourself better through your reactions. Don’t allow fear or resentment to drive your behavior, and do what makes you most proud of yourself. If others seem to want to pull you into emotional game-playing, refuse to participate. The planet of communication, Mercury, moves into your own sign today, and this is great news for all things “Mercury” in your life, including communications, learning, and transportation. You become considerably more talkative and expressive now and during this cycle that lasts until December 9th. You are also busier than usual, more inclined to attract others through your perspective or wit, your curiosity is piqued, and you can feel especially motivated to get moving on a pet project, or to learn something entirely new. This is also a good cycle for your career and reputation, which seem to be moving along in your favor. The Sun will soon enter your sign as well, and it’s perfectly appropriate to focus on some of your own plans and interests.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, and this points to a more indecisive stage, as well as a search for meaning. Answers don’t seem to come as straightforwardly as usual. You are not as quick to talk of your plans during this cycle that lasts until December 9th. Plans tend to be in an incubation stage, or old ones may be thrown out. You may have a harder time defining things or putting feelings to words just for now. Even so, this can be a wonderful time for seeing layers to situations that you may have missed. Today brings possible tension and competition, particularly with those in authority or in the world of business, but this can also extend to your personal world. Keep all of your dealings aboveboard and avoid becoming trapped in game playing. While you can’t control how others are approaching situations, you can control how you react.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your solar eleventh house, dear Aquarius, and will continue to transit this friendly area of your chart until December 9th. This brings good energy for interacting with friends and sharing your ideals, dreams, and hopes with like-minded individuals. New ideas for the future might be hatched during this cycle. They’re still very fresh, and some might be scrapped later, but there is a birthing process of sorts going on right now. This is a time when sharing your ideas or your expertise with others can bring rewards. Today’s energies are not so free and breezy, however. If there is a tendency to extremes, it’s likely to emerge today. The desire for new experiences and to move forward in your life can be hampered now by a feeling that you can’t quite let go of the past. If you find that you’re avoid
The planet of communication, Mercury, is now moving through your solar tenth house, dear Pisces, until December 9th. This can stimulate increased mental activity and communications to and about your career and position in society. Others take special note of your ideas and what you have to say during this cycle. There is no need to be self-conscious about expressing yourself now, but there may be some need for extra care in expressing yourself with tact and professionalism, as your words have more impact and a wider audience now. Today brings some tricky energy. You might not may be on the same wavelength with someone, and you could be receiving mixed signals. There is a tendency to read more into what’s happening around you. While it’s quite likely that people have hidden agendas today as we are not inclined to speak of our needs directly, it’s best not to focus too strongly on the negative. Be kind to yourself and the ones you love by seeing the good in one another, but keep some things to yourself just for now. Avoid mind games and power plays.
You are a determined, sharp-witted person with strong desires and attainable ideals. You need to stand out, not in a flashy manner, but as an entirely unique individual. Others naturally admire you for your strength of character and backbone. Although you are a natural leader, you are also a humanitarian. At times quite self-absorbed and private, you are very much at ease in social settings as well. You need channels for your strong desires and your need for self-expression. Never afraid of an obstacle along your path, you are gutsy, dynamic, resourceful, and you rise to a challenge.

The Moon slips into your privacy sector this morning, dear Aries, and from now until Saturday morning, you’re more inclined to seek out some form of solitude or withdrawal from overly demanding situations. You are in need of an emotional recharge and perhaps some review before a new lunar month begins. You can do some important digging today, whether this is in your own psyche or some form of research, and become completely absorbed in what you’re doing. Whether it’s just for fun or more serious work, this can be a day in which you’re especially motivated. Try not to waste your time on trivial matters, as there can be a tendency to obsess or become mentally wrapped up with something, and it’s best channeled into something worthwhile and constructive. Take extra care in your communications, as your intent may be misinterpreted.
Today is strong for expressing and showing your loyalty, dear Taurus, and for throwing yourself into a special project or cause. You’re looking for some level of devotion from the people around you, although this can be tricky, as not everyone is on your wavelength right now. Try not to stress over conflicting perceptions of the way you feel things should be, or over differences of opinion, as people tend to be wrapped up in their own personal issues right now. You can enjoy a nice escape from everyday concerns through friendships or networking activities. Take the pressure off and don’t over-think things today, unless, of course, you’re enjoying the process or topic!
Your tendency today is to dig a little deeper in whatever you’re doing, dear Gemini, as you’re not especially content to live life on the surface of things. It can be a strong day for business and work of all kinds, and particularly projects that require dedication or focus. It’s quite easy for you to become thoroughly absorbed in your work and experiences right now. Today and the next few days bring a Pluto theme, which can intensify your feelings but it can also stimulate any tendency to dwell on problem areas, so watch for that. Harness the passion and direct it into a worthwhile cause, or something that truly helps you. You may be trying to push the envelope today, which can be a good thing if you want to take something further. Use this time to find answers to problems rather than to entertain negative or suspicious thoughts.
With the Moon moving into your solar ninth house this morning, dear Cancer, you can feel as if you’re coming into the light, feeling more outgoing and adventurous. Even so, Pluto is strong and a little difficult today and in the next couple days, which can point to a tendency for people to be more serious than usual. Don’t tolerate people who are trying to play games with you through double talk or other manipulative methods. You don’t need to be taken down that road. Also, if you begin to feel a little threatened by others’ behavior, try to pull yourself out of a negative or jealous mindset. As long as you don’t absorb others’ tension, and focus instead on what you’d like to accomplish, you should have a fine day. There is strong energy with you for creative or educational pursuits that require an extra dose of passion or dedication, both of which are easier to come by today.
This morning, the Moon moves into your intimacy zone for a couple of days, dear Leo. This is a slightly more introspective phase when you’re more inclined to watch and see than to jump into action. With Pluto strong and a little challenging today and the next two days, this quality is emphasized. You may be feeling especially passionate about something or someone, and if you channel this intensity constructively, this can be a strong time for important research or progress on a project. Watch that you don’t waste energy on negative thinking or dwelling on problems that you have no power to change. The need to make important changes to your routines or your work situation can be pronounced now. Try not to become obsessed over finding answers to problems, but do try to focus your energy so that you can really make headway. Directing your own work, if possible, is ideal for you right now, as you can resent others controlling your schedule. Today is good for researching health and self-improvement topics, especially alternative therapies for healing.
Your ruler, Mercury, is in a minor tense aspect with intense Pluto today, dear Virgo, which can give you a rather serious or intense aura. Try your best to avoid negative lines of communicating and thinking, as these can spiral downward rather quickly! There is no need to dwell on problem areas. Your inclination is to go your own way, and stick to your way. A stubborn streak surfaces! This can work to your benefit if you find a constructive channel for your passion and determination. In fact, you can make wonderful progress on a project or explore an interest more deeply today with good results and much satisfaction. You are not very content with falseness or superficiality, and a little less willing to overlook these things than usual. The Moon moves into your partnership sector this morning, and you tend to want to have company in most things you do.
With the Moon’s move into your work and health sector this morning, dear Libra, you’re shifting focus to slightly more serious matters. A Mercury-Pluto influence with us today furthers this theme – you’re likely to be seeing the details that aren’t working more than the systems that are. This can be helpful if you use it constructively. In fact, it can be a very productive day when problem solving skills are emphasized. Avoid negative thought patterns. Around the home front, here may be some frustrations surfacing that need to be aired. Clear these up and work on resolving problem areas, but don’t overdo things. Overextending yourself won’t help. This can be a good day for handling a financial or work matter with finesse. You might also find the motivation and dedication to pursue a fitness or health goal.
You are especially sharp and curious today, dear Scorpio, and might be asked to speak or express yourself about an important matter. However, there may be a tendency for certain others to misunderstand some of the things you say, so strive to be as clear as possible. Watch for pushing a matter too far, and protect your light by avoiding negative thought patterns. Do encourage the investigator and detective in you, as today requires a deeper analysis, and you are particularly skilled at getting to the bottom of things. The Moon’s move into your sector of recreation, entertainment, romance, and creative pursuits encourages your more spontaneous side. It can be an expressive time!
The Moon moves into your family and soul sector this morning, dear Sagittarius, where it will spend a couple days, turning your emotional focus to personal and familiar matters. It’s time to explore your inner and domestic worlds and get into better touch with your needs for nurture and comfort. Interactions with a partner or good friend can be warm and passionate, but also quite intense. A powerful conversation that might feel uncomfortable at first can actually be healing, but only if you are especially conscious that suspicion and negativity are avoided. Don’t be afraid to tackle the deep stuff, but don’t push for “truths” if you don’t like what you’re currently hearing. This can be a good time for throwing yourself into a home project or domestic activity.
Getting through your schedule or routine could be a tad challenging today, dear Capricorn, as your mind is somewhere else altogether – on your personal issues. Avoid frustration by opening your mind and making room for the unexpected. You may be feeling a strong desire to micromanage things, or to be in control of situations that probably should be given some space! Unusual and possibly tricky situations with friends or acquaintances can occur today. Try your best not to get into power plays. Keep your mind stimulated by mixing up the routine in small ways with the Moon moving into your solar third house – a sector of your chart that demands a bit of variety. Even so, this can be a good time for putting extra energy into a particular project, cause, or study.
The Moon moves out of your sign this morning, dear Aquarius, and into your resources sector. A quiet day would be ideal for you as emotions tend to settle in. Both professional and personal responsibilities can weigh heavily on your mind now, particularly if there are rumors circulating or if you hear something that you are inclined to take the wrong way. People can be moody today, and there can be some double talk or manipulative tactics at play, which can be frustrating, as you’d prefer that people say what they mean. Try not to absorb others’ negativity, and focus on your own projects and goals. In fact, today is strong for investing time and energy into a pursuit that requires concentration or dedication.
The Moon moves into your sign this morning, and this brings out your need to be part of the main story line, engaged, and involved, dear Pisces. The tone around you can be a little tense or intense at times today, however, and you’re inclined to soak things in like an emotional sponge. Be sure to avoid taking on others’ poor moods or immersing yourself in tense situations. Conversations today tend to be intense rather than light. While you shouldn’t avoid important topics altogether, you can certainly let others know that you’d like to defer them for a better time. If something can’t wait, be as aboveboard as possible. There is good energy for doing something creative, particularly a project or activity that requires passionate involvement and concentration or dedication.
