The Axe Head
As an axe cutting toward the tree your actions have set into motion a course of events in this aspect of your life that you cannot escape. You will know soon if your aim was precise or reckless.
Your Daily Influences represent events and challenges the current day will present for you. They may represent opportunities you should be ready to seize. Or they may forewarn you of problems you may be able to avoid or lessen. Generally it is best to use them as tips to help you manage your day and nothing more.
This aspect of your life will be strongly influenced by a person who is diplomatic, urbane, romantic, charming, easygoing, sociable, idealistic and peaceable. This person is someone you know socially.
Seventh sign of the Zodiac, Sept 23rd to Oct 24th. Venus is the ruling planet; correct metal, Copper. Those born under Libra’s influence were supposed to be affable, courteous even tempered, painstaking, and with marked perceptive qualities. The Libra stones are the Opal, Chrysolite and Sardonyx. To the ancients the Opal was the Stone of Mystery its flashing and glowing rainbow hues suggested occult powers, and it was regarded as sacred in the East. In India it was believed to strengthen the mind and clear the brain; in Greece to give the wearer the power of prophecy and foresight, and during the 14th century used for strengthening the eyesight.
In Chinese Culture the Dragon is generally considered a sign of great luck and power. However the Red, Green and White Dragons in Mahjong represent three distinct influences that can affect your life. The Dragon Reading creates a relationship between sets of tiles to each Dragon to explore how the Three Dragons will influence you now and in the near future.
The White Dragon is indeed a wily fellow. His domain is the great unknown, and the tile set under him suggests an area or areas that could affect your life in unexpected ways.
The Water tile denotes a need for communication. A trip may be necessary to communicate properly. You may be called upon to present proof of ownership or that an event actually took place.
The South Wind tile is considered to be a very good sign in a reading. It almost ensures a satisfactory end to any problem.
The Toad tile indicates some troubling moments along your life’s path, but these aches will heal. It also suggests your ambition may be greater than your reach.
Loons mate for life, and their medicine is about loyalty, family, and deep caring for one another. If you’re experiencing a relationship fraught with power struggles, you are NOT practicing Loon medicine. If your relationship has BECOME a power struggle, Loon has appeared to remind you that this is a time of equal sharing and equal happiness. Something is amiss and Loon thinks you already know what it is.
The Crystal glows with the power of mystical truths transformed into material realities. The Crystal denotes a self with a powerful connection to the spiritual world that allows them to literally soak up cosmic wisdom and apply it favorably to their everyday life. It suggest a tremendous growth of one’s spiritual self that will greatly impact the querant’s secular life.
As a daily card, The Crystal indicates a time when you are likely to be well served by allowing your spiritual self to guide your day to day behavior.
Meanings: The Rings is the rune of love and when it is the leading stone, it is a positive answer to your question. It is very much a rune of relationship and can indicate engagement, marriage or a new/renewed relationship. It can also indicate the need for a fresh approach to an existing relationship.
The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.

Additional Information on Today’s Rune, Gebo
Phonetic equivalent: g (as in ‘girl’)
gift, offering, relationship, love, marriage, partnership, generosity, unexpected good fortune
MAGICAL USES:to find or strengthen a relationship, for fertility, to mark a gift or offering, to bring luck
Gebo is a rune of connection, particularly the connections between people. Up until now, our journey has been a solitary one. This rune represents those places where our path intersects with others, and allows us to begin to form conscious relationships. Such relationships are strengthened and sanctified by the exchange of gifts.
The use of the gift as a symbol of an oath or a bond is an ancient one. When a lord wanted to ensure the loyalty of one of his subjects, he would give that person a gift. The gift would create a debt on the part of the person receiving it, and this debt would ensure his readiness to serve his lord. Similarly, a gift given between lovers, especially that of the ring, symbolizes the bond between them. Originally, only the man gave the ring in a marriage for much the same reason as the lord giving gifts to his vassals, but today the arrangement is usually more equitable. Gifts or offerings given to the Gods often carry the same meaning, representing the giver’s love for or loyalty to their Gods. The giving of a gift implies the acceptance of a debt with the understanding that the debt will not be repaid. It is this imbalance which forms the bond.
This reading represent strengths you were born with.
Strength denotes an inner power, mastery of will and development of inner might. Through mastering one’s emotions and learning from both success and failure the person Strength represents has reached a place where they are influential without applying physical force, able to weather the roughest of storms, and not likely to abandon the less fortunate. Strength also denotes a large capacity for forgiveness and compassion. Strength is not as much about winning as it is about overcoming hardship, and using well crafted persuasion to ease others to your side.
When The Hanged Man is among your personal cards, the influence of Strength may be increased. Having The Chariot in your personal cards may diminish the influence of Strength.
This card represents the dreamer in you, the idealist, the mystic. The Fool desires to do great things, but is often unaware of just how difficult great things are to do. He must always be very careful of the choices he makes, and remember knowledge is his ally. The Fool often symbolizes a new beginning, unrestrained optimism, and curiosity that hasn’t been dulled by time. While The Fool may well indicate a lack of experience or grasp of the pitfalls along the path he is taking, it is equally true that his lack of experience leads him to believe all things are possible, which brings even impossible goals within his grasp.
When The Hanged Man or The Star are among your personal cards, the influence of The Fool may be increased. Having The Devil in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Fool.
The Lovers indicates both the most powerful of unions and the most of challenging conflicts humans must face. On one side The Lovers’ embodies love and union on a cosmic scale—a love so strong, so inherently good that it actually makes the lovers better, more than they really are. All of the elements are there for the perfect union. The Lovers represent all powerful unions in general, and the elements that create/sustain them. The problem The Lovers face is temptation and the decision to act morally or abandon their ethics to take advantage of other opportunities that would be defined as transgressions.
We may feel discouraged because it seems as if fundamental truths are no longer reliable; what we call “real” changes with time. The mists of Neptune’s illusions prevent us from seeing things clearly today. Unfortunately, our goals keep slipping out of sight while ambitious Saturn squares foggy Neptune. Three planets in philosophical Sagittarius offer us a broader perspective while the inquisitive Gemini Moon helps us process the facts.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
You’re capable of sinking into deep and dark places today while still maintaining an outer air of confidence. Others may accuse you of being in denial, but they couldn’t be further from the truth. You can brush up against the emotional pain, but you choose not to dwell in it. Acknowledging your fears enables you to navigate through troubling circumstances and emerge victorious on the other side. Just don’t move so quickly now that you miss the lessons you need to learn.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
Naturally, you prefer experiencing pleasure in the present moment, but you also are motivated by a strong moral compass. Unfortunately, you might believe you must choose one approach or the other. But this isn’t the end of the story, for your attempts to incorporate both aspects of yourself create your current dilemma. Finding your way through your existential crisis takes you on a journey into your own subconscious mind. What you find there can help you be a happier person in the real world.
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
Your high ideals don’t always match up with the reality of your relationships. Reaching your goals today becomes a struggle if someone close to you seems to be an obstacle to your success. Instead of just accepting another person’s lack of faith in you, stand firm in your convictions. Use your talent to think on your feet to decide what you want out of the current situation and then lay your cards out on the table. Once you’re clear about your destination, there’s no reason to hide your intentions.
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
Finding a middle path is a challenging task today, especially with respect to the patterns and routines of your everyday life. There are specific things you wish to improve upon, but you prefer to create change gradually. Nevertheless, you might have to make significant shifts in your daily habits in order to produce a lasting affect now. Shaking everything up may sound radical, but the positive results will be worth it in the long run.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
You might be obsessing over a current relationship or a potential romance. Sometimes, it’s best to keep your desires to yourself. Other times, it can be transformative to share your feelings with someone you trust. Naturally, it’s always wise to be socially appropriate; observe the boundaries and don’t overstep them unless it’s an emergency. Nevertheless, choosing how much to disclose is ultimately your decision, so take time to quiet your mind and tune into your heart.
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
Your anticipation of the future is too great to be contained by your current social conditions. Even if others are giving you permission to do whatever it takes to resolve the conflict between your personal and professional life, don’t believe them. Irresponsible behavior may be fine for other signs, but you conscientious Virgos are expected to carry the torch for ethics and integrity. Don’t sacrifice your ideals for what seems to be a quick solution to a complex dilemma. Follow your heart and you won’t go wrong.
Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
Your thoughts are soaring today, zipping in and out of the clouds of your mind. You can catch glimpses of them from your pragmatic position on the ground, and yet it’s challenging to latch onto any one image and turn it into reality. Accept that you may not be ready to go public with plans that others might judge as too outrageous. Instead, let the ideas come and go for now. The best ones will continue to gain traction in the weeks ahead. Err on the side of caution when it comes to maintaining your credibility.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Although you’re willing to alter your course as needed now, you’re not going to go through the motions until you believe it’s absolutely necessary. Fortunately, you are a master at work as you journey into the shamanic realms of dreamy visions. Use your multitasking skills to walk in multiple worlds and manifest the seeds of personal transformation.
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
The pressure to change continues to build all around you, especially in your personal world. Thankfully, if you remain flexible in your thinking today, you can cultivate a wonderful peace even in the midst of turmoil. The eye of a hurricane is a weird place; as still as everything is, you must stay on high alert every moment in case the energy shifts. Turn up the volume on your psychic radar, for magic is definitely in the air.
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
Balancing your fantasies with your responsibilities within a relationship can be a full-time job today. You normally honor your promises without hesitation, but now your deep feelings are driven by even deeper compulsions that might not support your previous commitments. Don’t make any dramatic changes yet; just sit with your discomfort. The issues that are coming to light won’t pass quickly, but will feed your soul over the next few months in ways you can’t even imagine.
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
You tend to intellectualize your emotions, but today it might be the other way around. Your thoughts carry an extra emotional charge, making it easy to become overly zealous about what you believe is true. You may be at odds with your colleagues or friends over a looming decision about the future. If you find yourself obsessing about this conflict, back off just enough to regain a healthy perspective. Clarity is elusive now but will be within your grasp soon enough.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
Just as you begin to settle into your new responsibilities, you are confronted by so much data that the details are overwhelming. You may threaten to throw in the towel today, but your conscience won’t let you do it. Instead, this is an opportunity to engage in a dance between the power of knowing the truth and the need to trust your intuition — even if these two extremes are in direct conflict now. Find a place to stand where you can honor both approaches and you will make the most out of this pivotal turning point.
You are exceedingly charming–and some of that charm is quite kooky and endearing. You are a magnanimous person with a big heart. You’re fun-loving, yet you are success-oriented at the same time. People trust you. Your jovial disposition makes you a pleasure to be around. Broad-minded, you seek truths without fussing over the details. Facts don’t impress you as much as broader truths do. There is a spiritual side to you that is not immediately apparent.
Famous people born today: Ricardo Montalban, John Larroquette, Amy Grant, Joe DiMaggio, Christina Applegate, John F. Kennedy Jr.

This is a time for putting ideas into action, sharing thoughts and beliefs, and strengthening alliances through communication. Tend to important errands and demands that are likely to arise today so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities. Do what you can to avoid a feeling of being overwhelmed today and this week – it won’t help anything!
This can be a strong day for supporting others through practical help, or for receiving this kind of help, dear Taurus. It’s also a strong time for work and research, as you can feel more motivated than usual. You might become more aware of the need to take charge of health and fitness matters. A Full Moon occurs in your money and values sector, and this can bring a financial matter to light, a business project to fruition, or it can point to a revelation about how you are valued and respected by others. If you’ve been overspending, this is a reminder to tighten the reins. It’s a great time to give it your all when it comes to pulling in income or developing a talent. There can be a settlement of money or attention to something that you owe now, but emotions today can just as well have to do with an intimate matter.
This morning is good for tackling difficult problems or taking on a mental challenge, dear Gemini. You are very willing to act on your ideas, and although you’re self-motivated now, a partner or special someone can be encouraging as well.

This can give you a nice boost forward.

A romantic revelation is possible, or an announcement can be made by a friend, lover, or child. There is good energy for you to work on a plan for a new long-term goal, but the details will need to be ironed out at a later date when your head is clearer.

It’s important to be as professional in your demeanor as possible, even if your “buttons” are being pushed now.

It’s especially straightforward to make a friend or to enjoy a current friendship today, dear Sagittarius.

Later today, a Full Moon occurs in in your opposing sign and solar partnership sector. Previously undiscovered emotions or relationship issues can come to light. There could be a culmination of a personal project for some. This can simply be something that has been brewing inside of you that now reaches a personal epiphany. This energy can be very revealing on an inner level. Sudden awareness of a pre-existing situation, or totally new information, can figure strongly today, especially regarding a significant other in your life. Work on emotional self-control today, but do listen to what your feelings are telling you.
You can feel considerably more optimistic and ready for action today, dear Capricorn. You are motivated to fulfill your duties, and then some, and the positive feedback only serves to encourage you further. You may effectively read between the lines, draw upon past experience, or uncover information now that helps you advance. As quickly as the day may demand your attention, taking time to center yourself will be appropriate. A Full Moon occurs late afternoon, reminding you of the need to better manage your daily routines, work, and health. Deadlines can be pressing now. No need to jump to conclusions now, however, because the emotional energy level is too high to see clearly just for the time being. Even so, it’s important to acknowledge the feelings that emerge today and make a plan for better meeting your needs going forward.
You are expressing yourself with confidence and verve today, dear Aquarius. You can be a little more assertive than usual in effective rather than assertive ways. Grab any opportunity that arises now that pulls you out of your usual routine and adds a dash of adventure to your life. Problem solving or active involvement with a friend or group can figure strongly. A Full Moon occurs in your creativity and romance sector late afternoon, and it’s bringing illumination to an issues surrounding friends, romance, and personal goals. There can be an epiphany, a significant turning point, or final word on a matter. Listen to your heart, as you’re likely to discover your feelings about someone or about a pet project.
You have the stamina and energy to accomplish a lot in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, although later with the Full Moon, emotions can be a little draining. There is a focus on treating one another fairly, and on straightforward communication. Your x-ray vision is strong this morning, which is good for business moves or strategies for general life direction and next steps. It’s rather easy to drum up support for what you’re doing and saying. The Full Moon later today can stimulate a sudden need to shuffle around your priorities, as your attention turns to your home front and inner, personal plans. Emotions surface and light is brought to feelings and situations that were previously hidden. The need to strike a balance between your career and family life (or your professional and personal life) becomes evident with the events of the day and this week. These areas of life are stirred up for good reason, and this reason is likely to be clear in the coming weeks.
