Astronomy Picture of the Day – Stars and Globules in the Running Chicken Nebula

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

2016 January 20

Stars and Globules in the Running Chicken Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh

Explanation: The eggs from this gigantic chicken may form into stars. The featured emission nebula, shown in scientifically assigned colors, is cataloged as IC 2944 but known as the Running Chicken Nebula for the shape of its greater appearance. Seen toward the top of the image are small, dark molecular clouds rich in obscuring cosmic dust. Called Thackeray’s Globules for their discoverer, these “eggs” are potential sites for the gravitational condensation of new stars, although their fates are uncertain as they are also being rapidly eroded away by the intense radiation from nearby young stars. Together with patchy glowing gas and complex regions of reflecting dust, these massive and energetic stars form theopen cluster Collinder 249. This gorgeous skyscape spans about 60 light-years at the nebula’s estimated 6,000 light-year distance.

Scanning the Planets for Jan. 20: Sun in Aquarius

 

 

 

 

Sun in Aquarius

Hearing the beat of your own drum

It’s not quite time to emerge from hibernation entirely, but the Sun’s move into airy Aquarius from January 20 to February 18 does signal a much-needed mid-winter break from the coldest and most dreary season of the year.

When the Sun moves into the mentally active and social sign of Aquarius, it’s time to come back out and reconnect with the world. We’ve been buckling down to work the past month with the Sun in antisocial Capricorn, but now is the time for making new friends and sharing bright ideas.

Those born from about January 17-23 were born on the Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp, and those born from about February 15-21 were born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.

Aquarius is more intellectual than emotional, so prepare to put sentiment aside for the next month. Focus instead on embracing your originality and independence, and participating in stimulating conversations with anyone who will listen.

High-minded Aquarius marches to the quirky pace of its own offbeat drummer, so the Sun in Aquarius period is perfect for pursuing your most outrageous dreams.

Embrace this brilliant and wonderfully eccentric Aquarian energy while it lasts!

Here’s how to make the most of life during Sun in Aquarius:

What to do: Fight for the underdog! Humanitarian Aquarius is ruled by rebel planet Uranus, so when the Sun is in Aquarius we are encouraged to rebel against social injustices and help fight for the rights of those less fortunate. Use your great big heart, problem-solving ideas and effective communication skills to help someone now!

What to say: The question is what NOT to say. Aquarius loves to think and talk, and quite often you can’t get them to shut up once they start. Enjoy all the stimulating conversations you’ll have during this time, but be aware of talking to the point of exhausting your audience.

Where to go: Space! OK, well, if you can’t hop a rocket to the cosmos while the Sun is in Aquarius, you can at least go somewhere else high-tech — even if it’s just that futuristic gadget store at the mall. Whatever you do, keep it quirky — is there a Stars Wars convention in town?

What to wear: Aquarius is all about expressing their originality, so use this time to do the same. Put streaks in your hair or wear something wild — it’ll be just another conversation starter.

What to buy: Books and gadgets. Aquarians are knowledge seekers, inventors and intellectual explorers. If you’ve been wanting to study up on something complex —  like the space-time continuum or the meaning of life — do it now by the light of the inquisitive Aquarian Sun.

What to watch out for: Being a smarty pants! Over time, intellectual Aquarians acquire a very large knowledge base, but it can also result in an unattractive know-it-all-attitude. We’re all full of brilliant ideas while the Sun is in Aquarius, so be sure to listen to others’ ideas, too!

What to look forward to: Making new friends and having a good time. Aquarians are very social and tend to belong on teams and in groups where they can enjoy spending time with friends. Take advantage of this Aquarian energy to enlarge your social circle now!

Your Charm for Today

Today’s Meaning:
A course of events that cannot be altered has been set in motion within this aspect. Accept whatever happens in the near future and do not waste your time fretting about it–you can do nothing.

General Description:
This was a favorite charm in Egypt, worn in order to frustrate magiciains, sorcerers and evil wishers from bewitching the wearer and stealing the soul from the heart; for it was the general belief that if the soul left the heart, the body would soon fade away and perish. The ancient Egyptians also believed that, after death, the heart was taken, in the underworld, and weighed against the symbols of the law; if found perfect, it was restored to the body, which at once came to life again and enjoyed everlasting felicity

When trying to discover what the Black Swan portends for you, look for events that do not occur in your life regularly or at all.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

Chance


The Chance card denotes a period in which taking risks may produce positive results. This doesn’t mean head off to a casino with your life’s savings! What is suggested is that you should make gains by taking a well calculated risk. For the power of Chance to be fully realized it is essential that you pick your risk carefully, move forward with conviction, and above all else don’t get greedy!

As a daily card, Chance implies you are currently in a place where taking a chance is likely to produce substantial rewards. In other words, take a few calculated steps out on the proverbial limb, but remember if you take it too far you are likely to lose all that you gain and possibly more.

Additional information about Today’s Witches Rune, The Scythe….

The Scythe

This symbol is very familiar to most of people, often associated with harvest and death. In the runes, it is no different. The Scythe is related to endings, sudden separations, final decisions, important changes and danger.

The appearance of this symbol show that there’s something in you life you need to bring to end now, before it snowballs into something worse. Usually, the decision that the Scythe forces you to make is one you’d rather escape from… it’s a painful and difficult choice. Even though you know (or feel) it’s for the best, you’ll mourn the fact that it has to happen.

Also, the Scythe is connected to sudden, swift changes that force you to alter completely your plans, strategies and sometimes the very way you see the world. The situation is no longer what it was, your modus operandi no longer works here. Your ideas no longer correspond to the reality. The information you have is no longer accurate, or useful. You need to strain those adaptation muscles and find a way to keep standing while the rug is pulled from under your feet.

Although this rune can represent physical danger, such as accidents or surgeries, many time it refers to sense of foreboding. Something just isn’t right… the fear of loss looms large. Trust these feeling and proceed with caution. This rune can also relate to actual death and all related to it: burials, graveyards, inheritances, heirlooms, legacies and things connected to your ancestry.

In relationship readings, the Scythe suggest caution too. It can represent sudden and irresistible attractions, the kind that inspire people to do crazy things. . Obviously, this rune also represent separations, divorce and conflicts, always leaving a sour aftertaste. The strong passion can quickly transform into strong resentment. In its most positive note, this rune can symbolize relationship that completely transform the people involved.

Hexagram of the Day

48: The Well


January 20th, 2016
hexagram09
Throughout various cultures and political systems of the world, the well has served as a universal symbol for that which sustains life and provides a constant, inexhaustible source of life-giving nourishment for mankind.

Like the well, human nature is the same around the world. The passage of time does not change its essential dimensions, nor take anything away. Still, just as a well can be deepened to produce clearer, cleaner water, so can we enrich our lives by delving deeply within — into our natural selves, or souls.

Beware of shallow thinking. Like a little learning, it can be dangerous. The image of the well suggests that along with depth comes clarity. Be patient, and penetrate both your problems and your own nature to the core. If you do not lower your bucket to the depths, you’re very likely to come up empty. When greater depth is desired, a lessening of speed is often required.
