We Pray for Our Brothers & Sisters in the Path of Hurricane Florence

Almighty Goddess, Mother of Us All,
We come before you to ask for your help
Not for ourselves but for our brothers & sisters
Who now face disaster and devastation in the
Wake of Hurricane Florence.

We ask from the depths of our heart that
You acknowledge their needs for a great Power
than our own to assist them now and their
most dire hour of need.

Goddess, protect our brothers & sisters
During this Hurricane that is to come.
Wrap them in Your Almighty Protection.

When they feel scared and afraid
Let them know You are there,
Watching over them, protecting them
From all harm.

When they are in trouble or despair,
Let them know You are there,
Guiding them and giving them courage
to face and conquer the challenges
before them and to come.

Dear and Almighty Goddess,
Bring our brothers & sisters through
this Hurricane, unharmed, safe, sound
and back to those who love them.

Let them know that we cannot be there
with them but we are there with them in
our thoughts, prayers and spirit.

We ask, dear Mother, that you keep
our brothers & sisters safe from all harm,
bring them through this Hurricane and
return them to us safe and sound.

We pray this Almighty Mother
From the inner depths of our heart.
Let them feel our love for them during this storm.
Let our love surround them and
become a powerful circle of protection.

Keep them safe,
See them through this storm
Let them return to us
From these are our brothers & sisters
We love dearly.

We ask this Almighty Mother in Your
Divine Name and Love.

So Mote It Be

–Lady of the Abyss

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

Judgement

Judgment embodies those forces which require us to be accountable for our actions. With Judgment truths are revealed, mysteries are unraveled and responsibility is assigned. Judgment unveils outcomes and marks the ends of things. While it is a time to properly place guilt, it is also a time for atonement and forgiveness. Ultimately the process of Judgment should lead to freedom from errors made in the past and a fresh start with a clean slate. To that end Judgment actually promises the start of a new journey on which we can apply what we have learned from our past.

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for Today

The Magician

Do some magic of your own today, like penetrating facades and gaining insights into dubious stories that lack credibility. Hold onto your heartstrings until you know you haven’t met a fickle flirt or a trickster. The Magician makes us see what we want to see regardless of the reality of a situation. He draws us in because we love secrets and mysteries, but who wants to live with them day after day and year after year?

Your Past Life Tarot Card for Today

The Star

When you stand up for other’s rights you can stir deeply-seated past life memories in yourself. The origin of these feelings might come from having a past life experience of your own family’s struggle. At this time the civil rights leader inside you has come to the forefront. This spirit is more afraid of not standing up for what he or she believes in then fearful of what retribution one could face. This incarnation comes with an inner strength that is founded in compassion.

Your Ogham Reading for Today

 

Duir-Oak

The name of the oak tree was part of the early Celtic word for Druid. Oak trees have always had a greater tendency to be struck by lightning, thus they have always had a more sacred standing among many cultures. It is a tree of great strength, durable hardwood, and its roots grow as deep as the branches grow high. To the Druids it was the King of The Woods. Thus these features of the letter Duir allow us to focus this reading on strength, resilience, power, and nobility. Like the mighty oak tree you will prevail.

Fortune – This Ogham denotes new paths, new doorways, and success once you decide to follow these new ideas!

 

Quert-Apple

In many religious traditions the apple is a mystical or forbidden fruit. Yet to the Celts it was the food of the Gods. Despite it’s often bad reputation it is clear that the apple is a source of nutrition, health, and sustenance. That is why we read this ogham letter has having to do with life, health, and healing… a Quert a day keeps the bad vibes away!

Fortune – Take a good look at your mental and physical health. This Ogham is a warning to be mindful of nutrition and healing, take care of yourself!

 

Gort-Ivy

The ivy is a sneaky plant that will first use another tree for growth, but overtime it will potentially take away vital nutrients and water from the tree itself. Ivy can be a symbiotic helper bringing birds and wildlife or it can destroy the one it is with, drawing this letter is a sign of warning to pay attention to those in life with potential ill intentions. Ideas associated with Gort are restrictions, warnings, bindings, and potential deceit.

Fortune – Be wary of those in life who like the Ivy may be draining you of life energy. Be sure they are helpful to your soul and not harmful!

Your Karmic Number for Today

Life is a bit hard to piece together lately if you’ve drawn out a 3 in opposition like you have now. Jigsaw puzzles can be fun and relaxing. They help pass the time. It is messy when your life is in a thousand pieces. You have pieces missing, so the picture is incomplete. Change your diet. Drink more water, detox, exercise. Do some breathing techniques, journal. Confide in a good friend about your challenges. You are overdue for a purge of the toxins in your life. You will find what you need in unexpected ways.

Your Love Horoscopes for Sept. 13 & Sept. 14

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

You’re able to bring healing to a relationship but will need to have faith in your ability to do so. You might question how far gone a situation or arrangement is and if your efforts will bring a result that’s worthwhile. If letting bygones be bygones feels like a sensible move or strategy than something delightful and transformative can happen if you summon willingness to do so.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

You have a choice regarding how much of a mountain you make from a molehill presenting itself in your emotional world. That’s not to say you can’t learn something helpful or intriguing from what comes to light. Seeing what’s unfolding now realistically and resisting any inclination to overreact puts you in a better place to make a decision that has been on hold for some time.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Just as you thought you’d dealt with and moved on from one tense or awkward love life scenario, another crops up. It’s possible you’re sending out a confusing message or signal to a loved one and making it difficult for them to know where they stand with you. What’s needed is a bit more consistency on your part. If you’re unsure of your feelings or what you want from someone, then now’s the time to encourage and seize some clarity.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

As harmony replaces tension, your confidence and optimism levels receive a significant and timely boost. This could lead to you revealing thoughts or feelings you’ve kept under wraps for fear of making matters worse or being concerned that the right words would emerge. Embrace the freedom you’re granted now to speak as deeply and profoundly as you wish. If there’s a certain person you’ve wanted to contact or open up, then your timing could be perfect.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

You might be aware of increasingly more questions than answers in your emotional world at this time. You might also be aware of how a relationship has altered or reached a point where you’re not sure which direction it will move in next. You can leave things as they are but that won’t shorten your list of questions. With patience and an open mind, insight trying to make its way to you will help to determine your next move.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Sagittarians aren’t the only ones receiving a cosmic reality check where close relationships are concerned. Yours might surround how you have your eye on the future of one involvement in ways your lover doesn’t. That doesn’t mean they’re uncaring or don’t see potential you do in what the future holds. However, if it becomes clear that they’re focused more on the present, then that’s your cue to provide a bit of reassurance.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Your determination to retain control of a situation or refuse to release yourself from an arrangement of some kind is probably the biggest source of frustration and weariness in your emotional world at this time. Something or someone needs to be let go of. The new era commencing relies on this. Trust that your heart is in safe hands as you head into unknown territory.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

If you’re a single Scorpio, then your sociable and gregarious side could be exactly what’s needed to help with forming new friends or expanding your social scene. Being willing to meet and mingle can put you face to face with more than one like-minded person, and romantic opportunities aren’t far behind. Your humor and energy can benefit your interactions, so don’t suppress either. More than one person could view your vibe as precisely what they need.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Your emotional world or a special connection can benefit from you putting yourself in someone else’s shoes or seeing a situation or arrangement from their point of view. You might believe what’s suggested or imposed suits them more than you. However, you can be supportive and understanding in a way they need you to be and will be better placed to remind them of this once you try to see an issue as they see it.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Competitiveness could find its way into a love relationship or your emotional world generally. This can have its plus points as long as it doesn’t get out of hand. Adopting an ‘anything you can do, I can do better’ attitude could be what drives a wedge between you and a certain person. You know how you’d react to such an attitude from them. One-upmanship is sexy but only to a point.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Turning the other cheek or ignoring a comment made by a loved one or someone close might not be easy but your intuition will remind that doing so is necessary and wise. Let a seemingly unjust or hurtful comment bounce off you. Once any intensity dies down, you’ll see how what was said was fueled by emotion and wasn’t intended to be as cutting as it sounded. A certain lesson might be learned from this experience, too.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Your happiness, contentment or fulfillment levels in your personal world look set to be subjected to a reality check. If this involves a relationship, then it might not be possible to gloss over certain cracks or ignore a particular issue any longer. If you’re a single Virgo, then you might assess why love life progress seems to move at a snail’s pace. This might be due to thinking too much about what you want and not doing enough to get it. Being just a bit more daring brings rewards.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Where you might have had to accept or adjust to a love life situation that felt enforced or offered no scope for you to offer input, you could see that some leeway exists in your favor. A relationship matter might not need to be ‘done by the book’ in a way you felt it did. Expect soon to see where room for maneuver exists and where you can have more of a say than you’ve had recently.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Diplomacy and tact will be needed on your part to ensure calmness prevails in your emotional world or regarding a discussion with a loved one. Be absolutely certain about a conclusion you’re drawing because you might think any absent facts aren’t needed. In truth, they are, and you’ll need to make sure you’ve got them straight before you wade in. That’s where diplomacy and tact mentioned earlier come in. With both and a visible willingness to listen, you can’t go wrong.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

If a certain development doesn’t happen on its own, then you know what to do. You might need to take the initiative and give it the steering it needs. Rather than wait for opportunities, this is a time to create them where affairs of the heart are concerned. More than one situation or arrangement doesn’t have to remain the same if you want to see it change. Getting a tiny bit angry or saying ‘enough is enough’ could be what’s needed.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

If you sense the time has come to draw a line under one association or nip a potentially problematic issue between you and a certain person in the bud, then your instincts deserve to be trusted. That ‘enough is enough’ scenario continues to become more prominent, pushing you to make your thoughts and feeling clear to someone. If you want them to be in no doubt about either, then that looks likely to be the case.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

Be willing to connect with your Gemini curiosity as romantic opportunities wait to be explored. Also, look closely at what has become repetitive or entrenched in routine. Introducing just a modicum of spontaneity will go a long way and bring a new lease of life to a love relationship, budding or otherwise.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

A gift or something exchanged materially between you, and a certain person might touch the depths of your heart. You might also be taken aback by how someone truly knows you or the lengths they’ve gone to make you feel extra special. A connection has the potential to evolve spiritually, and it’s here where you could really have your eyes – and mind – opened!

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

A situation or arrangement in your emotional world might be predictable and safe in ways you want it to be, but there’s much to be said for embracing a bit of volatility trying to make its way inside. This not only enhances spontaneity where it might be needed but can also do much to encourage a stronger and deeper level of trust between you and a certain person. All that’s needed is a bit more willingness to embrace rather than resist or reject change.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Tension between you and someone close could dissipate quickly with a little bit of effort. Whether this involves a love connection or close friend, don’t dwell upon what caused an issue. Focus instead on taking the initiative to nip it in the bud and put it behind you. Invitations on the social scene look set to increase shortly too, so try to make yourself available and ready for them.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

The cosmos is acting like a big, invisible hand, knocking obstacles to a deeper level of fulfillment in your emotional world out of the way. What you’re left with will be what or who needs and deserves your attention most. With certain distractions removed, and possibly from knowing where you stand with a certain person or what you and they agree on, you can start taking strides with affairs of the heart and not frustratingly small steps.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

Commitments or obligations outside of your emotional sphere could distract you from focusing on a personal matter or making particular love-related progress. As keen as you might be to set aside time and give the object of your affections your undivided attention, when duty calls, your time spent together could be curtailed. You’ll look for understanding from a loved one regarding this, but they might look for an understanding of their needs to come from you, too. Be prepared.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Thursday 13th of September 2018

An issue could exist in your mind surrounding how loved, appreciated, wanted or respected you are by someone. You might, understandably, believe your efforts or loyalty are taken for granted and asking you-know-who to put you in the picture might feel like it’s more trouble than it’s worth. However, proof of how loved and needed you are is coming. Don’t allow resentment to increase to the point where you tune out just as it arrives.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Friday 14th of September 2018

You might struggle to resist intervening with a loved one’s plans. You can probably see one or two flaws in what they’re doing, but this could be a time when it’s wise to allow them to do something their way. It’s also possible you could learn something from whatever it is they’re pursuing or getting to grips with. Stand back and see what happens from being a brief observer.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Friday, September 14

Aries
Aries

While you may be itching to change your situation now, dear Aries, risky moves are not advisable at the moment. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of thinking that’s too quick or cocky, which can put you in a state with blinders on. You might be odds with someone today over an issue of values or money owed, although it’s likely to be resolved (or put behind you) later today. These days, you do need to be careful about lending to others, or giving so much that you feel put upon. Today, there is a strong tendency to jump to conclusions or argument, when you’re far better off observing and using a wait-and-see approach. Tomorrow, this comes more easily to you.

Taurus
Taurus

Stifling situations and activities that restrict can frustrate you more than usual today, dear Taurus. Your awareness quickens. Unresolved misunderstandings may be glaring now, but you might be uncertain about how to tackle them. Your feelings are straightforward, but your fears or worries may be up and down. Watch for band-aid solutions to problems that require more depth and energy. With Uranus in your sign these days, intuitive flashes are becoming a regular part of your daily life. Try to keep one foot on the ground, but do listen to your intuition. Making too-quick decisions today may not be the best idea, though. Distinguish between making changes for the sake of change, and making changes that will genuinely move you forward.

Gemini
Gemini

Your thinking is otherworldly today, dear Gemini. You may even be receiving prophetic glimpses into your future through dreams or ideas picked up from the atmosphere around you. Profound inner changes are brewing, and today you may not know exactly what they are, but you feel that change is necessary. Actions today can be impulsive, however. If driven by a desire to rid yourself of certain unpleasant elements of the past, consider that a better solution may be to face the consequences of your past actions and to work on freeing yourself of guilt. There is no quick fix at the moment, even if you truly wish there to be one. Be honest with yourself. Note that mental stress could be interfering with your ability to think clearly and to take action confidently today. Impatience or insecurities can also interfere with your creative process now, although this should change radically towards the end of the day when strategy makes far more sense.

Cancer
Cancer

Unusual and surprising energy is with you for social activities today, dear Cancer, with Uranus in your social sector connecting with Mercury in your communications sector. However, watch for some impatience with others, and perhaps also with your work or communications. Mixing friends and personal projects right now could be an adventure in risk. This is not the best of times to lend someone money or to make a commitment either, as all of the facts are not yet available or they’re under your nose, but you don’t see them! There is a certain impatience to the day that makes it all too easy to skip steps or jump to conclusions but keep in mind that neither of these things is advisable now. As the day advances, though, you begin to see the benefits of a wait-and-see approach.

Leo
Leo

Off the cuff remarks are more likely than usual today, and can cause quite a stir, dear Leo, but keeping things to yourself can be frustrating as well. Try to arrive at a compromise wherein you choose your words more carefully but express your discontent nonetheless. You are not inclined to enjoy feeling caged in, but neither are you happy with what feels like neglect when given the freedom to do your own thing. New insights into your career are coming now, and it’s important to listen not only to what your intuition is telling you but also to what seems to be coming from out of the blue – synchronicity and other chance events. Be careful when it comes to relationships with a partner, best friend, or business partner, as you may be too quick to jump to conclusions. As the day progresses, though, you’re more inclined to pace yourself, seeing the value of taking everything in before passing judgment.

Virgo
Virgo

Disagreements or inner conflicts experienced today can stem from a sense that your desires are not exactly in tune with your higher ideals, dear Virgo. The way you view the world and how you experience the meaning of life is changing, and sometimes this can leave you feeling frustrated, or you can feel as if you’re spinning your wheels. The desire to explore the world beyond your usual daily routines is strong, but you may not yet have a plan of action to do so. Avoid jumping to conclusions. Towards the end of the day, you are likely to be feeling more at peace with others and with yourself, and this fuels your ambitions and improves your productivity, too. In fact, tomorrow and the next day hold excellent potential for useful conversations or making clear plans and connections that leave you feeling positive and confident.

Libra
Libra

There can be times today when impatience gets the best of you, dear Libra. Don’t let it rule you. Even though life tends to smooth out later today, do watch that you don’t jump to conclusions about someone or something. If you’ve been holding yourself back or suppressing your feelings, you may no longer tolerate the situation, and you can come on quite suddenly now. Unexpected events can occur that force you along a different path. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life may emerge, but don’t be too quick to draw a conclusion. This is a period of freeing yourself from compulsive behavior that has been holding you back. You might experience a moment of truth that motivates you to kick a bad habit and to live a freer life as a result.

Scorpio
Scorpio

It can be difficult to rely on both people and schedules today, dear Scorpio, and especially a partner or close friend, whose desire for freedom, or whose impatience, can produce some waves in your own life right now. Changes in relationships in recent times seem to have been thrust upon you, as if you had no say in the matter. However, you might come to an enlightening realization now that the changes are something that you need to grow. Freeing yourself from the role of a passive bystander in your own life is what this is all about, and it’s empowering indeed. Nevertheless, this is likely to be a mixed day, and it’s best not to push too hard particularly with a friend. Impatience should be tamed. As the day progresses, you’re likely to find it far easier to observe and strategize.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

You may see the changes that you’ve experienced with your work and daily routines in recent months in a new light today, dear Sagittarius. Adapting to a changeful working environment or daily affairs can be stressful at times, although also more rewarding when you realize you can meet the challenges. Avoid jumping into something prematurely, however, and watch for tensions over expectations from or of others. Someone could rub you the wrong way, and this can frustrate you. It may be difficult to understand a partner or a job requirement, as messages you are receiving are unclear and conflicting right now. Later today, however, tensions are likely to dissipate, and you find it far easier to concentrate on priorities.

Capricorn
Capricorn

These days, new insights can come in bright, empowering flashes, dear Capricorn, with Uranus transiting your solar fifth house although some changes happening now can be upsetting or jarring as you make adjustments. Avoid an abrupt, impatient, or defensive manner today as you deal with tensions and alterations. You don’t always do well with sudden changes of plans, but it’s best to roll along with them for now. Avoid making rash decisions today since the tendency to skip steps or ignore certain facts or precautions can lead to poor choices. However, as the day progresses today, your patience kicks in, and you’ll find tomorrow and the next exceptional for communicating, choosing, deciding, and observing. You are likely to enjoy rewarding interactions with others and may very well find precisely the right information you need.

Aquarius
Aquarius

Changes in your domestic situation or your inner world may be more frequent in recent months with Uranus beginning its long-term transit of your solar fourth house, dear Aquarius. Or, you may feel a bit caged in and desirous of change. Feeling unsettled or insecure is possible today if you’re thrust into a situation in which you feel inexperienced. While this is generally a good time for looking forward and feeling positive about making changes, taking quick action may not have desirable outcomes today. The tendency to jump to conclusions or to make swift, unstudied choices is strong. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be temporarily blowing things out of proportion. The next couple of days are strong for having the patience and foresight to make good decisions.

Pisces
Pisces

Generally, this is an important time for paying particular attention to ideas that seem to come out of the blue and unexpected communications, dear Pisces, with Uranus in your solar third house. Your intuition is working over-time now. However, there is a tendency for impatience today such that you skip steps or information, which can trip you up if you jump into something too soon. While emotional honesty is a beautiful thing, this is the case when it’s expressed maturely. If emotions are released in spurts, or if you are not representing yourself confidently, then your proclamations may bewilder others now. Take more time with your ideas — get them straight and choose tomorrow or the next to share.

If You Were Born Today, September 13

In your Birthday ORTEGA42 (12-09-18) from Piedad5007

If You Were Born Today, September 13

Extremely creative, you are also able to turn your creations into something practical. A born entrepreneur, you seem to have endless new ideas. A tendency to over-analyze your relationships should be watched. You are fully capable of taking the lead; nevertheless, you enjoy serving in some manner, whether it’s through teaching or simply finding joy in tending to others’ needs. You are clever, witty, and your sense of humor is mischievous. Sarcasm comes easily to you, but be careful it’s not too biting. Overall, you have the sense that you can win others over with your wit, and you usually can! Your ability to solve problems is next to none. Famous people born today: Ben Savage, Jean Smart, Mel Torme, Roald Dahl, Jacqueline Bissett, Nell Carter, Fiona Apple.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square (Crescent Moon) at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

You continue to benefit from a Pluto-Sun transit this year (this influence began in March 2018). Your attitude towards life evolves and transforms in significant ways. What used to satisfy you may not go on to do so, particularly if your goals have been superficial or a poor reflection of your inner desires. You are no longer willing to make compromises in the important areas of your life, particularly with regards to career and your life path. You are more determined this year, and it’s an excellent time for getting rid of bad habits. This is a year in which to get your life back on track, as you have the willpower to do so. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you’re really about. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a wonderful chance of being fruitful and long-lasting.

This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, and for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend your loved ones, and they do the same! New connections and opportunities can be sudden but welcome.

Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

With Venus and Mars in a square aspect to each other in your Solar Return chart, your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, sexuality, competition, and creative projects occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they’re feelings of love or anger!

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This positively impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

From April 2019 forward, you benefit from a transiting Saturn trine to your Sun which is an especially grounding influence. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. Stabilizing elements in your life add value.

New beginnings are likely this year as your life takes on new directions. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. In other areas, you’re hunkering down and getting organized. It’s a good year in which to do detail work and to prepare for the future. Some relationships (or a key one) can be competitive or up-and-down, but you’re also making special connections. Special care with finances is wise this year, particularly when it comes to impulse buys.

2018 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

2019 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study, observe, research, and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

With superpowers that range from flying faster than a speeding bullet to living under water and commanding the seas, our favorite superheroes can draw strength from all the horoscope signs.

Meet all the superheroes of the zodiac!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries are fearless leaders, and none more fearless than Captain America. As the leader of the Avengers, Captain America relies on his physical strength, speed and agility to stay one step ahead of his foes. Active, athletic and energetic like a true Aries Ram, Captain America wields his indestructible shield against injustice, leading the way into the battle to protect freedom.

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is known for being stubborn, but that also indicates the kind of sheer determination and willpower demonstrated by Hal Lantern and the intergalactic crime-fighting force we know as the Green Lantern Corps.  Just like all pleasure-loving Bulls, each member of the Green Lantern possesses a power ring and a power lantern that gives them control over the physical world. If we had to guess, the Green Lanterns probably like spaghetti, too.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

True to the dual nature of Gemini, The Wonder Twins’ powers are activated only when they touch each other and speak the words “Wonder Twin powers activate! Shape of… Form of…” As the changeable communicators of the zodiac, it’s telling these Twins always have a new form to morph into — and also telling that without each other their powers are useless. And like most multitasking Gemini Twins, the Wonder Twins have the power to be in two places at once!

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Sensitive, caring cancers are known for sometimes being shy and wanting to withdraw or hide away from the world. How wonderful to be able to disappear via the superpowers of the Invisible Woman, also known as Sue Storm. Like most Cancer women, Sue Storm is nurturing and highly protective of her home, creating a force-field of protection around her Fantastic Four family.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Drama-loving Leos will identify with wise-cracking webcrawler Spiderman, who — unlike his unassuming alter ego Peter Parker — does not shy away from being the center of attention when he’s saving the day. Spidey also has that typical Leonine love of romance, wooing the vivacious Mary Jane Watson like the Leo ladykiller he is.

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

With his inherent reliability and critical eye for detail, Robin is the ideal Virgo choice to assist Batman in fighting crime. Virgos are known for their smarts and their dark sense of humor, which are both evidenced by Robin’s need to do the right thing and his love of perfectly-timed puns.

 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, rules the balanced sign of Libra, which bodacious Wonder Woman embodies perfectly. WW is gorgeous, kind, friendly and out to fight for fairness. She deflects attacks with a gracious flick of her golden wristbands, and let’s her golden lasso fly in demand that truth be told. Like those born under the sign of the scales, she’s a true diplomat with a hot bod to match.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Dark and mysterious Scorpios love secrets, and Batman has the biggest secret of all: He doesn’t actually have any superpowers. As Bruce Wayne, he keeps his Bat identity from everyone but Robin, who he relies upon for backup while he plots and schemes – and who he also protects out of fierce loyalty, as any true Scorpio would. One word of caution to Robin? Don’t let Batman down, ‘cause Scorpio has an unforgiving temper and you’ll be driven right out of Gotham City faster that we can say na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN!

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Adventure-loving Sagittarius can never stay in one place for too long, which is surely why Thor travels between worlds on his chariot, sporting his archer-esque ensemble of iron gauntlets and a belt of strength. Instead of arrows, Thor’s weapon of choice is the Mjolnir – and enchanted and unbreakable hammer — but his talents are pure Sagittarius: strength, speed and the power of flight.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Superman’s horoscope sign is under much debate, most likely because he has two birthdays – one on Krypton and the other on Earth. Because he chose Earth, earthy Capricorn best represents Superman. Like most Caps, the man of steel is grounded, solid and loyal to Lois Lane. He’s also a determined force to be reckoned with, and he will not waver in his fight for truth, Justin and the American way. That is until he gave up his U.S. citizenship. Oops.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Quirky Aquarians are eccentric, forward thinking and friendly humanitarians, so when it comes to Aquarian superpowers we look to Professor X. A mutant with the most brilliant mind in the fake universe, Professor X is the world’s most powerful telepath – reading minds and projecting his own thoughts into the minds of others in the truly futuristic way of the water-bearer, an air sign known best for its great mental capacity, new ideas and concepts.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Who swims with the Pisces fishes? Why, Aquaman, of course! But Aquaman doesn’t just live beneath the sea and communicate with marine life — he also captures the sensitivity and imagination of Pisces. Changeable, adaptable and understanding of others to the point that he even possesses a healing factor, Aquaman uses his Pisces imagination to whip up tsunamis and wipe out crime, restoring a Piscean peace to the land.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, September 13

Aries
Aries

With Chiron in your sign, you’re learning to live more authentically, dear Aries, and today’s Mars-Chiron aspect is particularly potent and empowering. Mars is your ruler, after all, and Chiron is in Aries. You’re likely to feel in sync with people around you and with your environment, and you’re displaying quiet confidence that endears others to you. You feel pleasantly effective, competent, and ambitious. Stay active and involved now for best results. However, a Mercury-Neptune aspect today suggests seeing things through the lens of wishful thinking. Shortcuts taken now can be regrettable and possibly costly at a later date. Conversations can be vague or even guilt-ridden. Precise and factual reasoning can suffer today. Your mind is likely to wander, although it is imaginative and given the right place for your musings, you may very well come up with creative solutions to problems. If you can find healthy ways to get away or mix up the routine, do so.

Taurus
Taurus

You’re turning into subtly or otherworldly levels now, dear Taurus, on this dreamy day. Even so, you’re inclined to take action if it means supporting or helping someone out. You can be a source of great comfort or inspiration to a person. Creative and artistic matters are favored today, as is any volunteer work. An opposition between Mercury and Neptune can point to a need to pull back from overthinking things, but it can also confuse matters, so try not to bank on what you see today. Do your best to avoid misunderstandings and double check your facts. It’s also a good idea to seek out harmless ways to engage your imagination and need for drama in your life. Watch that you don’t get carried away by an idea or vision that takes you too far away from what needs to get done, but do find ways to satisfy your itch for new options and possibilities when it’s appropriate to do so.

Gemini
Gemini

Interactions with others go over well today, dear Gemini, as you’re willing to learn, and you’re open to sharing your ideas with others enthusiastically. Your thoughts can also turn to expanding your mind and experience through travel and adventure or some form of higher learning. Nevertheless, something you say or do today could be relayed or interpreted in the wrong way, with your ruler, Mercury, in opposition to illusory Neptune. Even so, this can also be a day when all that is imaginative, fantastic, or spiritual engages you. Seek out people you trust for opinions on your more practical affairs, but look within for answers to matters of the heart. You may feel that you have too many choices right now, and it’s likely that you’re not truly ready to come to a solid conclusion. If that’s the case, then wait things out. Uncertainty about your career or goals can interfere with the enjoyment of the moment. Take the time to reflect.

Cancer
Cancer

This can be a time when you learn something valuable about a partner or your deeper desires, dear Cancer, with heaps of self-honesty. You are fearless about facing feelings. Something may touch you or inspire you now through your interactions with others. However, as the day progresses, your imagination may be working overtime. Mercury and Neptune form an opposition, and this can make it hard to concentrate when you need to most, disrupting your routines. You can have a hard time arriving at definites and conclusions. Let your imagination go, but do so in the right places, and not so far that you set yourself up for a letdown. The desire, on one hand, is to obtain information and make sense of something, but on the other, the tendency to break it apart is powerful. This is not the time for critical detail work or beginning entirely new ventures.

Leo
Leo

This is a good time for putting the outworn elements behind you so that you can make space for the new, dear Leo. Interactions with a partner can be intense and revealing. A Mercury-Neptune opposition can introduce some confusing elements to the day, however. As much as you’d like to be gung-ho, you may end up on the fence. Be especially vigilant when it comes to lending and spending today. New ideas can be imaginative but may need more attention to detail before passing the test. This is a time for checking and double-checking your work if you’re dealing with facts and figures. It’s important to avoid over-committing now, and this applies to your spending, relationships, friendships, and with regards to work and obligations.

Virgo
Virgo

Work matters can be revving up and highly motivating, dear Virgo, and you might learn of a new health or wellness program that you are excited to apply to your life. Physical activities can be healing. Also today, though, Mercury in your sign reaches an opposition with Neptune, and there could be some drama in your close relationships. You might be frustrated with others who can seem to be unresponsive, indifferent, imprecise, or extremely vague. Situations are ambiguous when you’re seeking definite answers. You might also question whether you’re being lied to today. Try to let things be and depend on yourself just for the time being. Watch also that you don’t say something that leaves too much open to interpretation, as people may not be getting it.

Libra
Libra

New insights can be intensely revealing today, dear Libra, mainly about love and intimacy. While it’s not a time for pushing hard, it’s a good time to gently push boundaries or cross the usual thresholds, as you can make great strides with honesty and respect. Conversations with a loved one can be powerful today, but as the day progresses, we head into a Mercury-Neptune opposition which can cloud things. It can be difficult to distinguish between what we want to believe and what’s real. This aspect reminds us that we can’t always have clear answers — and don’t always need them! A chaotic or disrupted routine or lack of directions can be distracting today, but the detour your mind takes as a result of this can be enlightening, ultimately. Watch for miscommunication. Discretion may be in order today.

Scorpio
Scorpio

You can be tempted to push beyond the usual barriers and get to the heart of a matter today, dear Scorpio, and this can help you solve a problem or understand a situation. Complicated issues seem to make more sense when you allow your intuition to work for you. Relationships, although a little competitive, can be dynamic and exciting now. Conversations about, with, or on behalf of family can be intense and revealing. However, an opposition between Mercury and Neptune today can challenge your thinking. Perhaps it can open your mind to see new options and possibilities, but it can be disruptive as well, and misunderstandings are possible, particularly with friends and lovers. There can be trouble with people overstepping their boundaries, promising more than they can deliver, or with missed connections and general lousy timing. Rest and reflect!

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

You are coming across loud and clear in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, and others tend to follow your lead. Your words and actions can be helpful and perhaps healing, too. Love and attraction are strong notes in your life right now. Your powers of attraction run high, and there is a sense of moving forward. You are facing challenges head-on and determined to resolve problems, but as the day advances, it becomes more challenging to deal with things clearly and directly. Mercury opposes Neptune, and it’s essential to avoid making important decisions based on your current perceptions as wishful thinking can influence what you see. Others may not be telling you all you need to know now, or they could be misinformed. Dreaming up new possibilities can figure strongly, but it’s not the time to commit to something substantial.

Capricorn
Capricorn

You could be taking action on a financial, family, or security matter that puts you in a better place emotionally today, dear Capricorn, and this is satisfying. Family and friends seem to be showing you the way towards positive change. Be as open as possible to learn from others. As the day advances, though, keep your wits about you. There is a tendency to gloss over facts, and it’s doubtful that you’ll get useful information or straight answers from others. If you can keep things creative and free-form, then you can enjoy the exercise of opening your mind to new possibilities. You could be hungry for entertaining and enlightening concepts, ideas, and fantasies. In the right places, these can be rewarding.

Aquarius
Aquarius

With Mars back in your sign and direct, dear Aquarius, you’re regaining your energy, confidence, and courage. You are pursuing your desires and pushing personal plans forward, and today, you have a distinctive edge along these lines. Your magnetism heightens, and you might choose to use this time for expressing yourself creatively and persuasively. You are putting fears behind you now. You might also enjoy coming to someone’s aid, or taking the lead on a project. While you can be excited about bringing more order, structure, or knowledge to a project or endeavor, with Mercury opposite Neptune later today, you may not have all the facts or information to go on. Uncertainty about your income, resources, or abilities can weigh on your mind or distract you from doing what you want to do. You may only need to take a step back and allow your intuition to kick in before you move forward. People and information can be elusive now.

Pisces
Pisces

Mars, the planet of action, is in the sign just behind yours, dear Pisces, and thus in your soul and privacy sector, and this points to the need to take things easy. Mars forms a creative aspect with Chiron today, encouraging activities that ground you and help you heal. Allow yourself to relax and let go of such limiting states of mind as guilt and worry. It’s certainly a time to be spontaneous and to allow a more creative side of your personality a chance to shine. However, later today, Mercury opposes Neptune in your sign, and questions from others could awaken the escapist in you. While you do need to take some time to get to conclusions, consider whether you can give a little and give others something to go on. You might experience a mental disconnect with someone now. While it’s too easy to become distracted today, it’s also a strong time for new ideas and imaginative thinking. Given some space and freedom, you can come up with something very innovative.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for September 13

There’s a strong emphasis on studying holistic healing techniques and sensible alternative medical interests as Mars makes a supportive, 60-degree link to shaman-mentor Chiron (10:36am) just a few hours prior to the sun forming a parallel to Chiron (3:29pm). Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks or haiku while the moon in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces (1:51pm) followed by Mercury in Virgo making its annual polarity to Neptune (6:33pm). While the Mercury-Neptune tie stimulates your creative imaginative prowess, it also suggests playing a waiting game regarding major decisions and long-term commitments. The monthly lunar union with Jupiter (9:34pm) can be a good-luck charm and source of providence, but avoid over-confidence and pride that can send you on a cosmic detour.

[Note to readers: All times are now calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
