I know you thought you got rid of me but guess what, let’s talk………

So how ya’ doing? I hope fine. I have a question and I want honest answers, please. I have been monitoring the store and the sales for it, frankly suck. The store was doing fine before I had my latest adventure and had to be off for a few weeks. I want to know did something happen during those weeks I was off. I want you to be honest with me because if something did I will do my best to make it right. Those of you who have dealt with me know that is true. Is it because an 18 year old kid is running it? Truth be told, he isn’t running it, he is helping me run it till I fully recover. When I am back to 100% I will be back to running it full time.

 

I have made agreements and signed contracts with various wholesalers to provide you with merchandise that is hard to find and also needed in daily rituals and spells. The design on the site has been changed for easier use. I have been told we offer some of the lowest prices on the net and I have seen this for myself. There is one wholesaler, I wouldn’t even offer to do business with because we would have to mark our prices up at least 40 to 50 percent to make a profit. That would be too high and no sales would come from that venture. I have done everything I know to do to offer a specialty store to you, our members. A place you would have to get the herbs you need, the cauldrons, the wands, the athames and the list goes on and on. Like I said sales were great now everything has hit rock bottom and I feel like there is a reason why. I want to know that reason. I want to fix any problems that might have occurred and also provide you with a super store for all your ritual needs.

 

I have come to the decision that if the sales in the store do not pick up by this Spring, it will be gone. I will have no choice but to close it down. I am not risking our other ventures so the store can drain every last dime from us and thus causing us to loose it all. I am a witch and a business woman. That would be very unprofessional of me to continue to put money into a dying cause. The store has a huge inventory and we have a huge inventory here. It cost money to maintain that inventory, most of it is on consignment to us. The site cost money, every time I turn around Wix’s is charging for the search engine or the shopping cart or some other ridiculous thing. I have checked other sites and they are outrageous. Wix’s is reasonable and it does allow us to make a profit. A profit that we use to support this site and our other various sites. I thought I had finally found the answer to pay for what I want to do and accomplish.

 

I don’t mean to bitch but I am very serious when I say I want to know what has happened since I have been gone. I have a feeling I know but I want to know for sure. As of Monday, I will take back complete control of the store. We will once again offer gifts with purchases and have monthly drawings for various merchandise. If you have any idea of any particular merchandise you would like for us to offer, please let me know. I know when I ask questions, I don’t get responses. I feel like you are scared to give me your opinion. I am not going to bite your head off, I swear. I want to hear from you. Or else I will be forced to close the store in the Spring to keep from losing everything. We have worked to hard for me to let that happen. If we do have to close the store, I guess we will have one hell of a yard sale. Seriously, talk to me, give me ideas, so we can make this work, please.

 

So Sunday night, I will have the hammer out busting off this cast on my arm and I will be back in total control of this site and the store. If you don’t like the new layout, let me know, we will go back to the old. If you want new merchandise, let me know, I can get it. If you don’t like some of the merchandise on there, let me know and I will get rid of it. I want the store to work, I want to make it profitable and most of all I seriously opened it for you. Hell, if I have to close the store it will be a failure and I don’t like failure. To me, failure is unacceptable especially when you have worked 24 hour days to get it up and running. Yeah, I worked many a 24 hour day, that is why I was falling asleep at the computer. I will ask one more time for you to give me your suggestions, your ideas, tell me if something when wrong while I was gone, just talk to me, please.

 

I have got to run for now, but please let me hear your comments and suggestions about the store. Till tomorrow….

Love ya,

Lady A

Balancing Karma in 2018

I’m sure you’re noticing this year feels a bit different. We’re only one week into it and it feels like New Year’s Day was ages away.

This year’s energy is vastly different than 2017 and presents a whole new set of experiences.

The Universe has given you a celestial map

There are Universal forces of energy that guide us on our path of self-discovery. Every year the calendar changes, there is a new set of spiritual lessons and circumstances.

We can use the cycles of numbers and planets as clues to guide us on our journey.

2018 is a year of Illumination and Love

In Numerology, 2018 is an 11 Universal Year (2+0+1+8 = 11).

11 is considered a Master Number – meaning you are given more profound opportunities to master your life. 11 is considered the number of illuminated intuition – so your journey will be guided with your inner eyes.

11 is the number of Karmic Balance

Although the Universal energies affect everyone, the way you experience them is very personal.

In an 11 Universal Year, you will learn many lessons around relationships.

11 is also associated with Karma – and more specifically healing karma, so you can experience more love and balance in your life.

Karma is not simply about good and bad

If you look at the sacred geometry of our Master Number 11, there are two 1s each standing in their power. This is balanced energy.

Oftentimes as empaths and sensitive souls, we tend to give too much.

Every time you compromise your well-being to please other people, you are tipping the Karmic scales of balance.

If you would like to balance the Karmic scales in your relationships you must:

  • Be true to yourself
  • Practice love and forgiveness for yourself and others
  • Create and maintain healthy boundaries
  • Honor and respect yourself
  • Treat yourself with compassion.

Bring your awareness to the relationships in your life and ensure you are giving and receiving in equal measure.

If you focus on bringing balance in your relationships, this is sure to be a rewarding and exciting year!

I’m looking forward to an amazing 2018!

Your Daily Love Horoscopes for Thursday, January 25th

General

General Horoscope

Exquisitely complicated fantasies distract us from our worldly responsibilities today. Although the pragmatic Taurus Moon continues to anchor our feet to the ground and places our focus on the most immediate tasks, we are simultaneously fascinated with the influence of more subtle forces. A supernatural alignment between insightful Mercury, energetic Mars and metaphysical Neptune opens a portal to a parallel universe and invites magic into our lives.

Aries

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Your life continues to grow stranger and stranger — and you’re still not sure this is the end of it. A complicated relationship could take an unexpected turn. A project that was on schedule might suddenly unravel. Or, perhaps, a long-term spiritual practice dramatically propels you into another dimension. Although it’s impossible to predict the next level of surreal, two things are important to know. First, there is magic at work and it can improve your life. And second, things may get chaotic before you see any progress. Hunter S. Thompson wrote, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

A relationship with someone special is opening your heart and mind in entirely new directions. However, change is not easy, especially when it pulls you off the paved highway and into the unexplored jungle. Nevertheless, your senses are alive and tingling, and you are eagerly awaiting what comes next. Let go of your expectations since they will only keep you from fully engaging in the present moment. A world of experiences that you never imagined is the palette you will use to paint your future.

Gemini

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Opportunities at work can clear a path to your success, but only if you’re willing to set aside what you’ve learned on the job so far. It’s not that your previous experience has led you astray; it’s just that any assumptions based upon what you think you know could prevent you from seeing the array of possibilities ahead. The cosmos is inviting you to play a whole new game, and the old rules no longer apply. Roll the dice and take a chance on you.

Cancer

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You are looking at your future through a very practical lens as you gaze off into the distance today. Nevertheless, the safety-conscious Taurus Moon can keep you from making the most of this fortuitous moment. Throwing away your map frees your mind to perceive reality as it is, rather than how it’s drawn. At this point in time, it’s more important to make your own connections rather than relying on anyone else’s. It may take longer to arrive at your destination if you get lost along the way, but your journey will be one that you will never forget.

Leo

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You know what you should do today, especially if you want to maintain stability in a long-term relationship. But you have a sneaking suspicion that there is more going on than your five senses can tell you. You know you need to explore these unseen realms, but you don’t know where to find them. Don’t make any dramatic changes yet; start asking questions and do your share of research. Rely on your intuition to find the answers you seek.

Virgo

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

Your overly analytical mind will only entangle you in verbal threads, turning you into a spider trapped in its own web. Words are of no help while your key planet Mercury — which is normally your connection to logic — is dancing with physical Mars and spiritual Neptune out beyond the constraints of language. Any attempts to describe your destination only makes it impossible to reach. Stop talking and start creating. Let your art speak for itself.

Libra

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You want everything in your life to be simple and straightforward today, but as you learn more, reality grows increasingly complex. It’s as if your intelligence opens the door to a spiritual path that no longer takes you to where you thought you were going. Your first reaction may be to fight against the direction your destiny is calling. However daunting your journey ahead might seem, the rewards are greater than you can imagine. Ryunosuke Satoro wrote, “Let your dreams outgrow the shoes of your expectations.”

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Although self-exploration can be exhausting at times, you love to discuss the meaning of life in ways that are too intense for most people. However, there may be more opportunities to deep dive into the magical shadows of the subconscious now, making it all the more difficult to hang out in typical social environments. Keep your eyes and ears open as making profound connections with like-minded people can rock your world. Continue to emerge from your cocoon on your own schedule and not according to anyone else’s expectations. Be the star you wish to see.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You are transforming in ways that are not obvious to others, yet your heightened awareness is part of a trajectory that will ultimately lead you to fulfill your destiny. But trying to understand the larger picture now could be a wasted effort. There are additional pieces that still need to fall into place. In the meantime, keep an open mind and an open heart. Believe in the unexplainable today. Lao Tzu wrote, “The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.”

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

It’s tempting to put all your eggs in one basket today, but that strategy invites swift failure. Rather than concentrating most of your energy on your personal agenda, widen your sites and expand your peripheral vision. Adding social events to your calendar is one way to solidify relationships with your friends and your local community. Strengthening your support network now will pay off when you need it in the future.

Aquarius

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Recognition for your contribution at work could be forthcoming, but it may manifest very differently than you expect. Do your best to avoid assumptions about future activities, because your preconceived notions could interfere with a best-case scenario that’s outside of your current thinking. You are rolling along on a track and will likely see your path through to its conclusion before making any major changes. Success arrives in surprising packages.

Pisces

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

There may be some exciting travel plans in your future but you might want to schedule your trip right away, before action-oriented Mars leaves your 9th House of Expeditions tomorrow. Unfortunately, you will only confuse matters if you try to nail down the specific dates now. Instead of being preoccupied with the logistics, stay focused on the big picture. Choosing your destination allows you to color in all the details in your imagination first.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 25th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Opportunity is everywhere, you just need to get back your thirst and hunger for success. Knock backs you had in the past were simply learning curves. Use them to make your future the stuff dreams are made of.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Talk of children is strong in your chart. You see with ease what you can do to make other people’s lives better places to be. Standing together in family issues can make things happen.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You’re tired, but I can also see you wouldn’t be if you admitted what was wrong and what you have to change. Doing your facts and figures again can see you with a better outcome than was originally the case.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You don’t have to take others advice, but you do have to listen to it today. Others care about you Cancer and by showing that you value their opinion, even if you don’t act on it, you will get the support you crave.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
The Sun hands you the gift of persuasion and if there is something you have been trying to talk a close one into, then this is the day to put the pressure on. An old attraction comes to mind for a very unusual reason.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Stop worrying so much about what might happen with your career and instead make it happy Virgo! The negative influence who has been affecting your life is not the threat you think. Ignore them and block their number.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Why are you in such a rush today Libra. Remember that all good things come to those who wait. It seems from your stars that patience is required. Let others get in touch so you can be certain feelings are mutual.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Time is on your side in business matters, so try to pay more attention to detail and don’t be afraid to go over old ground. Knowing that what you’ve done and what you’ve presented is the key to your success.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
The need to see someone you have feelings for could see you offending those you have already arranged to see. Don’t cancel plans but merge the two. Don’t you think it’s about time all sides met?

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Travel brings success, especially the meetings which you were most nervous about. Someone is looking forward to seeing you more than you thought they were.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Lies have been told and you’re determined to get to the bottom of them. For sanity’s sake move on Aquarius, it’s the only way you’ll cut the tie to what was a very toxic situation.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
You thought you were not able to handle certain people who were in your life, but you were wrong. I see from your stars that you were more than capable my friend. Fun times link to an old face entering your life and possibly your heart.

If You Were Born Today, January 25

You have tremendous insight into others’ character and motivations. A little mysterious yourself, you need time to retreat and refresh your spirit frequently. You don’t always feel understood, but you are also complicated and don’t always let others in! However, you thrive in partnership. Your nature is a dual one, and you may hold down two different jobs as well. You are attracted to strong and determined people. With intellect and intuition equally strong, you are a highly interesting and intelligent friend. Famous people born today: Alicia Keys, Robert Burns, W. Somerset Maugham, Virginia Woolf.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and the making of hasty decisions. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.

You have a stronger ability to direct your energies into meaningful activities this year. You’re in a fabulous position to pour concentrated energy into pursuit of your desires or special ventures and activities.

You’re particularly charming in the year ahead, and you’re particularly proud of your relationships. It’s a strong year for strengthening your connections with others, both partnerships and friendships.

There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships — you’re taking love seriously. There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters. You can be quite particular in your taste and good with money and savings.

Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced this year. You may have opportunities to travel, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time. You could also have big ideas and plans, as your mind is filled with ideas. Work, especially in communications, goes well. Relationships with young people may be particularly rewarding and positive. An optimistic attitude serves you very well, and the desire to expand your mind is strong. With greater receptivity to new ideas and perspectives, you are more likely to attract positive energies.

You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with enthusiasm and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

You’re expressing and asserting yourself more naturally and confidently this year, which benefits all areas of life. Suppressed anger is more effectively released in creative ways. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you.

Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports. Even so, you’re especially charming and diplomatic, investing much in your relationships.

 

2018 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2019 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday,, January 25th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
The stars line up to bring your career to the fore. You no longer worry about what ifs, you are determined to make sure that you are at the top of your game. Don’t let arrogance stop you from accepting a learning course.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
A sensitive air which Mars is placing over you will see you reading too deeply into what other people say today. Try to look at actions as well as words and you will soon see that you are loved and supported.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Your powers of concentration are not as good as they usually are. If you can get a second opinion on any work or facts and figures you are working on, then do so. It could save you financially and professionally.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The home comes to the fore and you’ll be looking at ways you can better run your household to ensure that your incomings don’t become less than your outgoings. A new flirtation has great potential.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You may not be able to get the finances you need as and when you need them, but you will get them eventually. Use your ability to talk people round with words to manage this tricky time.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You and a close one don’t seem to be getting on as well as before and this is having a knock on effect on how you feel as a person. Be the one who begins heart to hearts tonight.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
It is imperative at this time that you listen to the words of advice that a family member is giving to you. You think your close ones don’t have your best interests at heart, but you are wrong.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Information you have learnt since the beginning of this year is your secret weapon to getting out of a situation and into the life you want. You wanted a push and now you have it. Reason and motivation are yours.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
A new arrangement is not sitting as well with you as you had hoped and this could lead to you acting in a way today which others will find out of character.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
I know you’re bored with your current situation, but I also know you are the only one who can change it. Stop thinking what if and instead think when and how. Actions taken today are sure to make you smile.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Your social life is changing and many of you Aquarians will find yourself running with a different crowd and doing things which are different and more inspiring. An ex is trying to get in contact. Remember why you left them!

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
You see through lies and fools easily and it will be hard for anyone to pull the wool over your eyes today my friend. Don’t let others know what you know just yet. Keep your aces for a few days.

Tarot Card of the Day

Seven of Coins


January 25th, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Seven of this suit is typically a paean to the humble laborer who is willing to show up every day and sweat in the sun for next season’s bounty. The traditional concept is cultivation, with an attitude that slow and steady wins the race, with faith in nature’s assistance. The protagonist of this card doesn’t make excuses, isn’t whimsical or moody, but is dedicated and sees the job through. Of course, it’s no good to count your chickens before they hatch, but there’s no question that the person who is vigilant over a project is more likely to get the desired result.

Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways, will waste less energy and time than the person who works against her. As a side meaning, we sometimes see this normally humble farmer in a moment of frenzy, betting the crop on a roll of the dice. This represents a moment of dementia, addiction or desperation which hopefully will not last long enough for the farmer to lose everything!

Daily Love Tarot

The Sun

__________________________________________

January 25th, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

Your Erotic Tarot

The Judgement

_________________________________________________

January 25th, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Judgement card represents a sexual awakening, and now that you aren’t afraid to move in a new direction, a whole new world awaits you. What sex positions do you want to try, and which fantasies have you been dying to act out? Being honest with yourself and potential partner(s) about the details of what you desire will help you get what you want faster, and the end result will be much more satisfying. And above all, enjoy your sexual liberation!

Your Earth Sky News for January 25th – 2018’s 2nd supermoon on January 31

January has two full supermoons. The 2nd one comes on January 31. As the 2nd full moon of the month, it carries the name Blue Moon. Plus, it’ll undergo an eclipse!

A supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. An astrologer, Richard Nolle, coined the term supermoon over 30 years ago, but now many in astronomy use it as well. Supermoons have entered the popular culture (check out Sophie Hunger’s music video in this post, for example), and they can cause real physical effects, such as particularly high and low tides. According to the definition of supermoon coined by Nolle, the full moon of December was 2017’s only full supermoon. January 2018 will have two full moons – on January 1 and 31 – and both are supermoons. Follow the links below to learn more about supermoons.

 
When is the next supermoon? By Richard Nolle’s definition, a new moon or full moon has to come within about 224,000 miles (361,000 kilometers) of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, in order to be considered a supermoon.

A Little Humor for Your Day

Evocation of the Pizza Delivery Lad

Perform’d verily in great quantitie on the eves of Freyja’s Day and Saturn’s Day
by Sgaileach Sidhe

Know ye, of brite eyes and rumbling tummy, that yon ritual hast been performéd by thine ancestors since first man yearnéd for munchies.  Prepareth, hence, for thy ritual by cleansing thy Desk area to preserve a sacred space for thy pizza, which shalt shortly be deliveréd unto ye by the hallowed messenger.  Relinquish, thee, all papers and such which doth undoubtedly clutter thy sacred Desk until the time of pizza doth occur.  And set ye out upon thy keyboard a mighty set of napkins, for the art of pizza ingestion ist a faulty process fraught with grease stains.

Upon this sacred preparation, annoint ye now thy lips with Cola of thy deity’s significance and prepare to petition the spirits of thy local and most favoréd patron deity of pizza.  Be it called upon by the name of Domino, Our Little Caesar, Howie the Hungry, or Great Father Romano…ye shalt call upon thy deity for spirited release from the hunger pangs of thy tummy.

Begin ye now the ritual.  Take up the divination of thy telephone, and dial ye in thy pizza deity’s sacred number, Qabalistic values thereof notwithstanding.  Speak patiently and slowly thy hidden name and thy petition; take care to outline the detailings of thy contracted pizza lest the spirits deny ye a flavor ye hath not rememberéd.

Upon thy departure from the telephonic spirit realm, the herald of thy pizza deity shalt impart unto thee the wisdom to know what tribute this day be for thy request, and lo!  ‘Tis then that ye shalt make thy way towards thine wallet and retrieve therein the sacred coins requiréd to placate the pizza delivery lad.

Upon closure of thy sacred connection with the divinatory Telephone, hold ye up thy sacred coins and wait ye thrice ten minutes for the spirit to appear.  If the spirit be late, thy sacred coins shalt lose their potency, and thou wilt receive thy pizza as a blessing free of charge.  Else placate the messenger with thy coins upon his (or her) arrival, and ye shall gain thy petitioned pizza.

As anchovie, so bacon.  So meade it be.
May thy workings be tasty and fattening.

 

A Little Thought from Me to You…….

Of our Beloved Solar System
and to all
of Her creatures
for here they dwell
One planet
united in harmony
with universal love
and compassion for all.

Your Daily Astronomy Overview for Thursday, January 25th

 

This morning, Mercury’s sextile to Jupiter helps put things into perspective, although it does also encourage reaching beyond our usual boundaries. We are clearer in our thinking, and we’re looking for solutions to problems or the positive side of situations. Our minds open to possibilities. The Moon spends the day in steady, comfortable Taurus. After some overthinking, we’re inclined to want to simplify as the day advances.

The Moon is void from 10:17 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Mercury), until the Moon enters Gemini the next day, Friday, January 26th, at 12:40 PM EST.

Moon in Taurus

 

The Moon is traveling through comfy Taurus today. Eat something you love. Have a second serving.

We are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and “stop to smell the roses”. Life slows down a little, and we get comfortable. We may also be inclined to stubbornness and materialism under this influence.

The Moon in Taurus generally favors the following activities: Substantial and material actions that yield solid results. Financial activities, and those involving personal possessions, applying for a loan, beginning a potentially long-term relationship, music, home decor.

The sky this week for January 25 to 28

Asteroid 20 Massalia, beautiful star clusters, and an exceptionally bright Jupiter will all make appearances in the sky this week.
By Richard Talcott

Thursday, January 25

A pair of fine binocular objects are on display during evenings this week. The open star clusters M46 and M47 reside about a degree apart in the northwestern corner of the constellation Puppis the Stern. The two lie about 12° east-northeast of the sky’s brightest star, Sirius. The western cluster, M47, glows at 4th magnitude and appears as a fuzzy patch sprinkled with several pinpoint stars. Sixth-magnitude M46 shows up as a hazy collection of faint stars that is hard to resolve under most conditions. Although it contains nearly twice as many stars as M47, M46 appears fainter and fuzzier because it lies some three times farther from Earth.

Friday, January 26

The waxing gibbous Moon slides eastward through Taurus tonight. Once darkness falls across North America, you can see the lovely Hyades star cluster perched just east of Earth’s satellite. As the night wears on, the Moon moves into the V-shaped Hyades and approaches 1st-magnitude Aldebaran. (Although this star appears to belong to the cluster, it lies only half as far away.) From the northwestern United States and western Canada, the Moon passes directly in front of the star just before the pair sets.

Saturday, January 27

The brightest star in the night sky puts on a nice show January evenings. Gleaming at magnitude –1.5, Sirius shines nearly four times brighter than the next brightest star visible from mid-northern latitudes: Arcturus in the constellation Boötes. Sirius rises around 5:30 p.m. local time and ascends in the southeast throughout the evening hours.

Sunday, January 28

Mars stands out in the southeastern sky before dawn this week. The magnitude 1.2 Red Planet rises before 3 a.m. local time and appears 25° high as twilight starts to paint the sky. It currently resides among the background stars of eastern Libra, some 10° east of brilliant Jupiter. Unfortunately, the view of Mars through a telescope proves disappointing — its disk spans only 5″ and shows no detail.

The Moon in Taurus: Practical, Devoted, and Steady January 24 – January 26, 2018

By Tarot.com Staff
Videos, Taurus, New Moon, Moon, Full Moon, Astrology

Before we go into the Moon in Taurus, let’s just talk about the Moon for a moment. The Moon is the fastest moving heavenly body in the sky. Because it moves so quickly, the Moon spends a little over 2 days in each zodiac sign every month! If you look at your own Astrology birth report, you can find out what your lunar sign was at the time that you were born.

When the Moon is in Taurus
It doesn’t matter where your Moon sign is because for a couple of days a month we all feel the influence of a Taurus Moon. When the Moon is in Taurus, there’s a dedication to getting what we want, as Taurus is oriented toward filling our needs directly. If there have been things you’ve longed for, there’s no better time to make them happen than a Taurus Moon.

Taurus is uncomplicated, and just want its senses satiated. A Taurus Moon gives us the desire for a full belly, a feeling of security, to know that there’s money in the bank. Maybe some of these things are things that we always want, but while the Moon is in Taurus, we’re more drawn toward getting them. These are the things that will make us feel good in the moment.

You might be feeling a desire for more comfort and security now. Indulge in the sheer pleasure of being here, adored by gravity, Earth’s invisible embrace. Enjoy your weight. Roll in a newly mowed lawn. Celebrate your voice: shout, sing, or whisper in somebody’s ear. Then drink a soothing tea for the thyroid and throat. Yes, Taurus is goal-oriented, but it’s also concerned with achieving a harmonious balance.

Be careful — the Taurus Moon makes it easy to feel stubborn. But in a changing world, such strength can sometimes defeat itself. Don’t try to move immovable objects.

New Moon in Taurus
The New Moon in Taurus happens once a year in mid-spring when the Sun is in the sign of Taurus. New Moons are always about beginnings, a time when things take root, and a Taurus New Moon is especially focused on doing things that are real. It’s about making something happen that has substance to it. It’s a great time to go out into the garden to plant seeds, or anything else that has a tangible element to it.

Full Moon in Taurus
The Full Moon in Taurus occurs when the Sun is in Scorpio, around mid-autumn. The Sun in Scorpio is intricate, while the Moon in Taurus is simplistic. This creates a great counterbalance in energy, taking out the complicated and mysteries energies that are at play during this time. A Taurus Full Moon is a great reminder that by paying attention to our senses — what we can touch, taste, smell, and feel — we can ground ourselves and make life simple again.

If you were born with the Moon in Taurus
You’re probably already familiar with your Sun sign — the sign representing your outer self, the person you show to the world. You can calculate your Moon sign (natal Moon) using the date, time, and location of your birth. It’s important to know both because while your Sun sign represents your outer personality, your Moon sign reflects your inner self. It’s all about your emotions, habits, intuition, and unconscious. You can read more about Moon in Taurus compatibility here, but just remember that the Moon is your emotional being.

Taurus is the first Fixed sign of the Zodiac. It’s Taurus the Bull. Have you ever heard of someone being bull-headed? This describes Taureans, because there is always a determination to get to wherever they need to go. This gives them the ability to put in the work, and stick it out when the going gets tough. Nothing can stand in the way of a Taurus who has decided what they want!

If you were born with the Moon in Taurus, it is considered a blessing because it’s always about having your needs met. Whether it’s nice sheets, delicious food, or good music, a Taurus wants to feel a sense of pleasure in everything they do. When a Taurus is immersed in satisfying experiences, all is right in their world.

The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus. Venus concerns itself with money and matters of the heart, and has a sensual quality to it, increasing the power of attraction. If you were born under a Moon in Taurus, you are most likely drawn toward beauty, love, and creativity. A Taurus takes their relationships seriously, and wants to feel a sense of deep, abiding kinship with their partner.

A Year of Full Moons
Learn the name and meaning of the Full Moon every month
By Tarot.com Staff
Moon, Full Moon, Astrology

In Astrology, the Full Moon signals a time each month when we are able to take a clear look at what is happening in our lives so we can decide if we need to make changes. But culturally and historically speaking, the Full Moon has additional meaning that changes from month to month throughout the year.

The Full Moon stirs our emotions, so it’s fitting that the Full Moon for each month has a different name and personality. Many of the Full Moon names date back to ancient tribes who followed the Full Moon to help keep track of the seasons.

Other Full Moon names have been created by different cultures around the world, and most of the Full Moons have more than one name — although one is likely more widely used than the others.
