Part 3 – Horoscopes & Divination


This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Love Is Grand

Your love horoscope for the weekend of October 13-15, 2017

You’re wearing your heart on your sleeve this weekend! The Moon moves into brave and passionate Leo on Friday, leaving you feeling extra lovey-dovey and eager to share your feelings with your partner or crush. But don’t let attention-seeking Leo, with its flare for drama, get the best of you if those feelings aren’t immediately reciprocated.

The big news, though, happens Saturday when Venus moves into Libra, the sign of partnership. Venus rules Libra, so she feels happy, easy, and right at home here. Venus in Libra makes it easy to cooperate and helps keep things light and loving. Thanks to Libra’s great appreciation for beauty and the arts, Saturday is a great day to go on a date to the movies, a concert, or an art gallery … with a partner, of course!

The only speed bump happens Sunday when Mercury bumps heads with Uranus, causing your thoughts to race and making it all too easy to jump to conclusions. You might have radical new ideas about where you want your relationship to go, or maybe you’ll notice something about your partner or crush that irritates you. Refrain from blurting out hurtful, judgmental, or assumptive comments. It’s been such a lovely weekend! Don’t end it with an argument. is Part of the Daily Insight Group ©2017


Intimacy Issues of Each Zodiac Sign

Astrology can help you overcome intimacy issues in love

Intimacy can be challenging. It’s not easy feeling exposed and vulnerable to those you love and trust — much less to someone you’re newly dating.

Relationships bring up our deepest anxieties, which we express in different ways. Some signs, such as Sagittarius and Aquarius, fear they’ll lose their independence, so they hold people at arm’s length. Others, like Cancer and Scorpio, crave commitment and may come off as too needy.

Learning how to create true intimacy is what life’s all about. What issues might stand in your way? Find out with a Love Celtic Cross Tarot reading and look up the intimacy horoscope for your sign below.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’re determined to do things your own way, Aries. That spark of sovereignty within you is strong, and you fear losing it in relationships. Because you can take care of things so well on your own, you may shy away from letting others know how much you need them. Practicing the art of give-and-take is the key to maintaining your independence and also letting others in deeply. Also, take care you don’t demand too much, too soon.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You know once you make a commitment, Taurus, it’s for good. That’s why you take your time choosing the right person. Once locked in, however, you want things to stay the same forever and stubbornly resist change. Fear of leaving your comfortable rut is your single greatest barrier to intimacy — a condition that thrives on constant growth. You need to trust that change is good, and embrace it with open arms before love can flourish.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You tend to flit around a lot, Gemini, never staying put long enough to establish deeply-rooted ties. The fear of becoming bored or being hemmed in tends to keep you on the surface of things, never investing enough of yourself to feel committed. And, there’s that secret fear that your partner might discover the “dark twin” you try so hard to hide. Yet letting someone in shines the light of love into the darkness — leading to true intimacy.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You fear exposing your soft underbelly, Cancer. Since your emotions are so close to the surface, it happens more often than you’d like. Once exposed, you’re at your loved one’s mercy. Because you’re more comfortable nurturing others than receiving loving care, being willing to fall apart, cry or be vulnerable is actually good for you. And, your willingness to reveal yourself makes intimacy with others much more rewarding.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

You have a hard time relinquishing control, Leo. And, your desire to be the one in charge can keep others at a distance. Because you seem so capable, they may be content to let you run the show. Don’t fall prey to this trap, though — sharing power in a relationship is the key to intimacy. As you reveal areas in which you’re not as competent, you let others know the true you. Your quick temper can also ward people off, so practice patience.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

A feeling of unworthiness is at the root of your intimacy issues, Virgo. You fear that if you reveal your imperfections, others will run away. Yet no one holds you to the impossibly high standards you set for yourself. In fact, they’d rather you come out and play instead of always worrying and care-taking them. Don’t let your sharp mind and analytical abilities dominate your feelings, where the magic of intimacy lies.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

You work hard at making things beautiful and harmonious, Libra. Therefore, you may tend to sweep relationship issues under the rug where they fester and create distance between you. Intimacy is about being real, not pretending things are ideal when they’re not. Also, your agile mind is skilled at figuring out feelings without ever feeling them. Getting into the messy realm of emotions scares you, but it’s the key to intimacy.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

People sometimes feel threatened by you, Scorpio, which can be an obstacle to closeness. It’s not that you avoid intimacy; you thrive on delving deeply into feelings and confronting issues. It’s just that your intensity and blunt honesty can be too much for others. And, they may feel you want too much. On the other hand, you may hide your deepest feelings, afraid that if you open up you’ll be betrayed. You need to learn to trust more.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Yours is the sign of the eternal bachelor, Sagittarius. Footloose and fancy-free, you fiercely guard your freedom and often turn tail and run when people get too close. Your biggest obstacle to intimacy is considering commitment a trap, associated with the boring and humdrum. The solution is to find a partner who’ll give you a long leash — but in return, you’ll have to promise to stick around for the tedious parts.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You want to be seen as the strong one, Capricorn. Capable, sure, even stoic, you shy away from the realm of emotions and are loathe to let your vulnerabilities show. Others end up leaning on you, but what happens when you need help? You need to learn how to let others past your defenses and love you. Once you shatter the illusion that you’re invulnerable, then caring becomes a two-way-street and true intimacy is yours.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Like Mr. Spock from Star Trek, your sign prefers logic to feelings. You’re seen as self-contained, even chilly, and have trouble expressing what’s in your heart. Because you possess a brighter, quicker mind than most, you think it ought to serve all your needs. You fear losing your freedom if you let others in. Yet to avoid the fate of loneliness, you need to open up and explore the territory of the heart.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your biggest obstacle to intimacy, Pisces, is a lack of self-knowledge. You’re such a chameleon, skilled at being all things to all people, that you may not know what you really want. As you spend some time alone, apart from others’ needs and feelings, you’ll create better boundaries and lose the need to rescue those you love or let them take advantage of you. You’ll also find that place of strength that fosters true intimacy. is Part of the Daily Insight Group ©2017

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, October 13th

From The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You and I both know you’ve said some things you regret. We also know you can’t change the past. What you can do from today though, is prove to those concerned that you’ve learnt from all that occurred.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
It’s time to decide how you want your day to day life to be and who should be your priority. Too many eyes were on you, but today gives you the privacy to explore your true feelings.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
If you love life then life will love you back. Forcing an issue which has not felt right from the outset can only lead you to heartache and disappointment. An old ambition is given the chance to re surface.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You find fresh inspiration and motivation from new faces who enter your life and show you a better way to do things. Your element of water brings out your need to make peace with someone from your past.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Family have not been easy to understand, or make sense of lately. Why not back off and let them have time to work through the issues they are going through? Doing so will ensure you are not placed with any blame.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Careful you don’t end up losing respect for those who have been taking but not giving anything to you lately. It would be far better for you to grant those around you independence so they have the chance to learn to fly.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
If you play games in love, then you are going to get your fingers burnt. Stop trying to push for answers which close ones are not yet ready to give. Filling in paperwork early can make and save you money.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You are such a good judge of people, but lately you have found it hard to trust your own opinion. In fact, you’ve chosen to rely on others instead. Taking chances on your own instincts today can see miracles occur.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Be open to new opinions today. It can make all the difference as to whether you live life or simply exist in the days and weeks ahead. The need to make peace with a family member could see you eating humble pie.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Don’t push away those you love just to get a reaction. They may not be as easy to get back on side as you think. Study and research you do this week can and will give you the edge on the competition.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
You’ve had so much to juggle lately, but you should be proud of what a good job you’ve been doing. Now is the time to let yourself relax a little and to enjoy the benefits of your hard work, starting with some ‘me’ time.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
You don’t really know if you have funds to spare, or if you need to be saving and working to a budget. If you don’t know, then find out Pisces. It’s the key to you looking and feeling in control of your life.


If You Were Born Today, October 13th

You have a sharp mind and a great love of debate, justice, and the law. Always seeking answers and balance, you are inquisitive and not afraid to express contrary opinions, yet you do so in a rather tactful manner. You are both practical and responsible. Not afraid of hard work, you can be quite successful in your career, although you need a strong sense that you are moving forward in order to feel motivated. If you are expressing a tendency to scatter your energies, it’s a sure sign that you are lacking this kind of motivation. With your quiet demeanor, it might surprise people who don’t know you well that you possess strong convictions.

Famous people born today: Chris Carter, Paul Simon, Margaret Thatcher, Sammy Hagar, Marie Osmond, Jerry Rice, Sacha Baron Cohen, Lenny Bruce.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, October 14th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You may think that your close ones are not supporting you, but in actual fact they are working behind the scenes. Try not to make accusations you have no proof of.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
You still seem to be reeling from some news you recently heard. You’re trying to work out what needs to be done to make you feel more in control. Continuing with your own dreams is the first step.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Do you need these changes you’re asking for? Or are you simply trying to show close ones that you have control. Try to work on keeping a happy medium for all over the coming days. Teamwork promises loyalty.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The opinions of others have been holding you back from admitting what and who really makes you happy. Remember that you are the one who has to live with the decisions you make.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Don’t listen to advice or gossip from those who you know only have half the story. Good luck awaits you financially, especially if you’re willing to sign up for a long term and not just a short term commitment.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Promises could well be broken, as many of the signs are not capable of giving the commitments they offer. This is not their fault, it’s the stars bringing out the nostalgic and dramatic side of our natures.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
A situation which you have been growing tired of for some time simply vanishes from your life and you start to realise with relief that it only ever was a temporary thing rather than a permanent way of life.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
There is so much you need to think about at the moment that your head must be spinning Scorpio. Knowing who you don’t want in your life is a good place to begin. Ring now to hear why it’s worth meeting up socially with old work contacts.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone and as you’re a fire sign, that’s going to be a very dramatic starting point. Exams and tests upcoming can prove really successful, if you organise your time and don’t allow others to do it for you.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
You thought life was falling apart, but actually it was just falling into place. Buying and selling go well at this time. It would be worth your while holding out for the real deal.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
A better day to day life is slowly but surely evolving and this has much to do with the fact that you have finally found your voice. Friends could become something more for some of your sign, much to the surprise of all around.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
I know you lost a lot of confidence at the beginning of the month, but now at last I see it’s coming back. I also see that you’ve learnt who not to listen to. Look your best tonight. You’ll be seeing someone you’ll want to impress.



Daily Tarot Card for the Day

The Lovers










Keywords: choice, decision, love, communication, inspiration (ideas from above)!

Astrological Correspondence: Gemini

The Lovers card is representative not only of crucial life choices, but also of lovers, couples, and other partnerships, like business partners, siblings, and friends. The angel between a woman and a man, depicted on this card, symbolizes the struggle of deciding to follow one’s heart versus one’s temptation or obligation. The Lovers card symbolizes the choices that must be made to progress toward higher self-awareness; choices also reflect emotional values, indecisiveness, hesitation, and our fears about making wrong choices. This applies not only to love relationships – it is applicable to any relationship in which people are drawn together, even a casual one. It’s the card of uncertainty!


Daily Love Tarot for the Day

The Emperor









The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose.

Your Daily Erotic Tarot

The Judgement









The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them.

Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Jump in the shower and let Frog Medicine do its work.

A Little Humor for Your Day

The Plan

Does any of this sound familiar around here ???

  • In the beginning there was the Plan.
  • The plan was based on a set of Assumptions.
  • And the Assumptions were without substance.
  • And thus the Plan could not be sustained.
  • And therefore darkness was upon the face of the Workers who are charged with carrying out the plan.
  • And they spoke among themselves, saying, “This plan: It is a crock of sh*t, and it stinks of same.”
  • And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and said, “It is a pail of dung, and we cannot live with the smell.”
  • And the Supervisors went unto their Managers, saying, “It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it.”
  • And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying, “It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none are able to abide its strength.”
  • And the Directors spoke among themselves, saying to one another, “It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”
  • And the Directors went to the Vice Presidents, saying unto them, “It promotes growth, and it is very powerful.”
  • And the Vice Presidents went to the President, saying unto him, “This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the company with very powerful effects.”
  • And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good. And the Plan became Policy.

And this is how sh*t comes to happen.

 Ethics of The Craft

“An it harm none, do what ye will” is considered the main tenant of Wicca. It is similar to the Golden Rule, in that it mandates that you can do whatever you want, but only if you do not harm anything, anyone or yourself in the process. This belief constantly reminds us that there are many consequences to our actions and we must consider all possible outcomes before acting. The Wiccan Rede thereby binds Wiccans to do the right thing, for if we don’t, then the Law of Three applies: “Whatever you do will return to you threefold”.

The Belief in Light & Dark

Most Witches acknowledge that there is “light” and “dark” to the universe. This polarity (light vs. dark) is part of the natural order of things and is not necessarily “evil” or “bad”. What is considered to be “light” are those events or processes which are beneficial, such as the birth of a healthy baby. Whereas, things that are “dark” are events that might be harmful. As an example, death is “dark” but it is part of the natural process of life and is not feared by Witches, but natural and accepted.


Evil is different from “dark” when it is used to describe human actions. When a person commits a certain action for personal gain, or to serve a personal end, it is considered “evil”. If a volcano erupts and destroys a village, this process would be thought of as “dark” but there was no evil or malicious intent on the part of the volcano. However, when an individual commits murder, for instance, this individual set out to harm another person, therefore, their action can be described as “evil”. It is not only the act, but the malicious intent that differentiates “evil” from “dark”


Witches believe in a joyful balance of all human functions. This outlook is perfectly expressed in the Charge of the Goddess, which is an integral part of most of the rituals of all Witches, “Let My worship be within the heart that rejoices; for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals, and therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.”

The Witch is always conscious that compassion must be partnered with power, humility with honor, and reverence with mirth. Love of life in all its forms, is the basic ethic of the Nature Religions. We are bound to honor and respect all living things and to serve the Life Force.

We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon, and the seasonal Quarters, and Cross Quarters.

We recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment of life and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.

We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called “supernatural,” but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.

We conceive of the Creative Power in the universe as manifesting through polarity – as masculine and feminine – and that this same Creative Power lies in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and the feminine. We value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive of the other. We value sex as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magickal practice and religious worship.

We recognize both outer worlds and inner, or psychological, worlds sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconsciousness, Inner Planes, etc. – and we see in the inter-action of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena, and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.

We do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but do honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.

We see religion, magick and wisdom in living as being united in the way one views the world and lives within it – a world view and philosophy of life which we identify as Witchcraft.

Calling oneself “witch” does not make a witch – but neither does heredity itself, nor the collecting of titles, degrees and initiations. A witch seeks to control the forces within her/himself that makes life possible in order to live wisely and well without harm to others and in harmony with nature.

We believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe we know and our personal role within it.

We believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and well-being.

Till tomorrow, my sweets…..
