Your Love Horoscopes for Monday, Sept. 17 & Tuesday, Sept. 18

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

As focused as you might be on creating stability in all areas of your world, your emotional world is probably most prone to surprises or volatility now. A loved one could make a demand of you that you see as unreasonable or unnecessary, too. However, it’s important you don’t shrug off something they see as important. This needs to be brought into the open as both of you could learn something helpful or valuable by addressing what you’re inclined to ignore.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

You might be feeling extra romantic or want to boost your creative input into a love connection but might also find a loved one or potential partner to be unenthusiastic or unresponsive to your ideas. They might be caught up in a drama in some way and could use some emotional support more than they could use some fascinating ideas to indulge in romantic reverie.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Putting your emotional world on a stronger footing could become a priority now or shortly. This could involve removing any guesswork or assumptions from a budding relationship if you’re single, or if you’re tired of walking on eggshells where a loved one is concerned, then you can bring more comfort, reassurance, and stability to your world. If your heart is pushing you to make a change, then listen to it.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Your heart is the best source of answers to any love life issue or dilemma at any time because it only tells the truth and won’t lead you astray now. If you sense history is repeating itself or a love life scenario you were certain you’d moved on from seems to be rearing its head again, then it’s necessary to stop in your tracks and decide where a line gets drawn. It might also be time to start eliminating bad habits or negative influences that only hamper romantic fulfillment instead of encouraging it.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Predictability and routine have their place in your emotional world, but you’re wired to want more spontaneity. If you’re a single Archer, then cast your eyes over social media pages and find someone you haven’t contacted or met in some time. New contacts represent new romantic opportunities, and even if a friendship doesn’t become something more, a friend could be a helpful matchmaker.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Overthinking a love life matter could take your emotions to a confusing or unsettling place. Your head could be coming up with ideas, assumptions or conclusions that your heart isn’t able to process as quickly. Rather than overwhelm yourself with negative thoughts or concerns, feed your mind and heart with positivity in whatever way you can summon it. Looking closely at what you have to be grateful for or have yet to embark upon with affairs of the heart is a good place to start.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

You and the object of your affections might share the same objective in some way, but an obstacle regarding reaching an agreement on the best way to proceed could be the main stumbling block. A future result is very much in sight, but it’s what’s occurring here and now that might be the source of any tension. Keep lines of communication open, and you’ll overcome this with grace.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Love and affection might be tricky to summon, but you can dig deep to pull yourself out of an unhealthy rut or well of despair. You might be getting used to a new routine in your emotional world or are adjusting to a new set of circumstances. However, whatever has occurred or continues to unfold needs to be seen as the helpful and significant step forward it is. Don’t focus on what you believe you’ve lost, focus instead on the very big gains that you’re benefiting from.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Don’t be fearful of setting certain love life expectations high. You won’t be at risk of drifting away as the cosmos has your back and is helping you to remain tethered to reality. You might be seen as unrealistic, but you’re encouraged to raise the bar or stakes where love and romance are concerned. This might also involve accepting you deserve more with affairs of the heart and there’s no time like the present to start ringing some changes to make you feel more fulfilled.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Clarity is finding its way to both your head and heart now. You’ve given past relationships and love interests much consideration, perhaps assessing what went wrong, right, and valuable lessons learned. Although every memory might not be a fond one, they helped you to make some far-reaching decisions, and a new era commencing with affairs of the heart needs you to focus as honestly as possible on what you know you want. The days of settling for second best are drawing to a close.

Libra yesterday love horoscope:

Sunday 16th of September 2018

A very big difference exists between being honest about circumstances in your emotional world and viewing them pessimistically. You might believe you’re reducing any chance of disappointment by focusing on any potential downsides but would be doing yourself a massive disservice by doing so. Rather than become consumed by overcautiousness or fear, try replacing both with reasons to feel grateful for your current situation. The truth or reality of your current love life circumstances is something to embrace with justified eagerness.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

If you’re struggling to find a balance between a sense of urgency in your emotional world and a need to be extra cautious, then heed the message regarding caution. You’re encouraged to slow it down and see something realistically, and that’s where caution comes in. You appear to need to get a firmer understanding of something you’re considering or considering committing to, and hastiness will lead only to regret.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Effort could be made by friends or family determined for you to enjoy yourself and let your hair down. Permit yourself some ‘you time’ and detach yourself from career-related matters that have sapped much energy or willingness to socialize recently. Being in social surroundings could do wonders for your confidence, and if you’re a single Virgo, then an introduction or a chance meeting with someone whose calmness conceals an addiction to adrenaline rushes could capture your imagination!

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

A delightful sense of fulfillment can come from knowing you and someone close share the same objective where a plan close to your heart is concerned. Where you thought you might have to be persuasive or ‘sell’ an idea to the object of your affections, they could be more willing to agree or proceed than you thought they might. If you and your sweetheart have been waiting for the right time to get a shared or collaborative project off the ground, then that time might have arrived.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends with work, home, and love life obligations, then this is a time when something has to give, so try to take a break. This includes distancing yourself from any drama or chaos. Being the best you can be for yourself and others requires the occasional recharging of physical and emotional batteries, so try to see the importance of doing so now.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Your response to a romantic or relationship dilemma could be passionate or emotional, and it’s important to understand the difference between the two. You might even be surprised at how you react to a situation you were certain would pass without any hitch. Passion can be your motivator, but emotions could make clear what needs to be rethought or reassessed. Either way, you can trust that a decision is about to be based more on feelings than logic. That could be the best option, too.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

A loved one’s preoccupation with a hobby or possibly work could prove to be a stumbling block. You might feel as if your relationship isn’t always a priority and could be dealing with a precedent that’s going to be hard to shift. If you’re made to feel second best or that your needs are further down a loved one’s list than they should be, then a very open discussion is needed and soon.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

An emotional issue could feel like one, big heavy weight or cause you to believe progress on the romantic front is on par with walking through wet concrete. It’s possible someone close is taking a personal issue too seriously, and you can help them see the matter more realistically by bringing a bit of lightheartedness or humor to any discussions. Being so serious all the time is boring and draining.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

You might be certain you’re finely tuned in to what your heart wants, but its message might be skewed in some way now. Emotions can make it difficult to distinguish what we want from what we need, but you have a chance to confront questions that have surrounded a partnership or commitment. This is a challenge to rise to, not fear. The answers you come up with will suit you and someone close, and you can’t get fairer than that.

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Taurus today’s love horoscope:

Monday 17th of September 2018

Any changes made to your lifestyle could have a noticeable and potentially significant effect on your emotional world. After all, who doesn’t want to look good naked? Your energy and passion levels could be boosted and help you connect with others or one person in particular who will admire your gung-ho, ‘can do’ attitude. Glowing on the outside means you’re glowing inside.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

You could be prone to suppressing negative energy, even if much of it is invisible. It would be helpful to set some boundaries with a partner, love interest, and with yourself. Before you can treat the cause of any unrest or resentment, you need to get to grips with it. Time spent alone meditating, writing, or self-reflecting can be ideal for establishing the root cause of any confusing feelings. Then, you’ll be in a much better place to discuss them openly.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Removing insecurity or uncertainty from your emotional world or a love relationship can happen but will need to be done in measured steps rather than dramatic strides. If there’s any healing needed – or a proverbial bridge needs building between you and a special someone – then small but heartfelt gestures can make an enormous difference now.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

You might not struggle to summon enthusiasm, but a partner or love interest might look to you for the boost they need. Although it’s important to be supportive and motivating, it’s equally important to draw upon each’s other’s positive energy now. If you inspire a loved one or potential partner, then there are ways they can do the same for you and something magical can come from reciprocating in such ways!

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 17th of September 2018

Introducing something new to your emotional world or a particular relationship is a great idea, but try to be creative or imaginative, rather than look to revive an idea from the past. Circumstances might dictate that you and the object of your affections will benefit more from what’s safe or ‘tried and tested.’ However, a whole new world of possibilities exists if you’re willing to dare to be different. If anyone can do it, you can.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 18th of September 2018

Instead of second-guessing how a loved one or potential partner might react or what they might say in response to you trying to determine what they think or feel, come clean and say what you know you want and need to say. Remove any element of doubt or uncertainty by laying your emotional cards on the table. A bit of upfront honesty might be all that’s needed to know where you stand.

Don’t Forget to Feed Your Moon

A starving Moon can plummet your emotions


Astrologically, at the root of depression, I believe, is a starving Moon. If your natal lunar needs are not being met then the rest of your horoscope has a difficult time functioning. I have always said this to my clients and have found it to be true over and over again. The Moon is our instinctive feeling nature. It’s where we feel safest, most nourished, and nurtured. The Moon represents the deepest needs we have as individuals.

Stifle someone’s Moon and you’re stifling their emotional well-being. PERIOD.

A while back I went through a mild postpartum depression episode, my friends. No, I didn’t have another baby. I did, however, take home a three month old puppy. Unless you’ve been through postpartum depression, you may not relate to the feelings of sadness that accompany what is supposed to be such an incredibly joyful event. I did suffer through postpartum depression with the birth of my first child, more than 18 years ago. It was one of the darkest times of my life and I don’t ever want to go there again.

At the root of my depressive episodes is always a starving Moon. I was born with the Moon in Sagittarius, in the 8th House of Depth and Transformation. My Moon is closely conjunct Neptune, square my 12th house Jupiter in Pisces, and trine my 12th house Venus in Aries.

In English? With the Moon in Sagittarius my overwhelming need is to have freedom of movement to expand my horizons, pursue the deeper meaning of life, and experience adventures. I also need to spread my wisdom on deep psychological (8th house) and metaphysical matters (Sagittarius) so that I might heal (8th house) and inspire others (Sagittarius). The Moon next to Neptune and square Jupiter in Pisces in the 12th house speaks to my deep, over-exaggerated need for alone time and privacy; for peace. And the trine to Venus helps me experience pockets of joy in those moments of helping to heal the suffering of others.

 

Making space

With the birth of my son I was suddenly put in this prison that is otherwise known as motherhood. I realize it’s a dramatic statement for some to read but please, understand my needs and my visceral reaction. I felt that all of my freedom was suddenly gone. That I would never again have the time or peace and quiet or personal space to pursue the interests that fed my soul.

It had nothing to do with loving my son. I loved him with all of my soul. But it had everything to do with not being able to blend my new life of chaotic motherhood with getting my lunar needs met. I would nurse my son and look at him so peaceful and I would cry. I would cry because I felt very much at the time that making sure he had all of his needs met came at the sacrifice of my own needs.

It took time but after about eight months the depression went away. I adjusted to motherhood and I found ways to feed my Moon in little ways. What really helped me was that my ex-mother-in-law would watch my son for me for a few hours each week so I could have my “alone time” and do whatever I needed to in order to nourish my soul. My Moon. Having the freedom to go out without the shackles of baby stuff was really all I needed at the time.

 

Nourish yourself

And here I was again recently, with this little adorable puppy, feeling a lot like I felt all those years ago. The difference? These days I know Astrology, and I know exactly what I needed to do in order to make sure the depression didn’t get worse.

For the puppy, for my children, and most importantly, for myself, I had to feed my Moon. Are you a caregiver? Then remember to put your oxygen mask on first. Otherwise, how can you take care of anyone else?

What is your Moon sign? What house does it live in your horoscope? And what are the aspects that the Moon makes to the rest of your chart? Learn more about this and you’ll make sure that you never starve. Happy Moon equals happy life.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, September 18

 

Aries
Aries

You are in no mood to feel tied down today, dear Aries, even though you recognize the need to follow a few rules! It’s important to be mindful if freeing yourself of something that has been holding you back, however, as there is a real tendency to be rash today. Try not to lash out when dealing with frustrating situations (or people), as it is unlikely to contribute positively to your life. A healthy outlet can be to focus on areas of your life that you may have been avoiding and sideline the things you’ve been overdoing. This will lead to a much more balanced feeling. There has been a more intense focus on your social life and happiness goals or long-term plans and dreams, which has bumped some of your practical goals down to second place. The results of this may make themselves known today, but don’t let the disruption get you down! Take this opportunity to see your practical affairs from a new perspective, as it may lead you to new possibilities. You may be taking action on a matter that feels long overdue today.

Taurus
Taurus

A Mars-Uranus square involving your sign today can point to some tension, dear Taurus. If you feel restricted by something or someone, you’re ready to bail! The instinct may be to rock the boat, but do keep in mind that you’ll be far more effective if you take the time for some self-knowledge — knowing what it is you genuinely want makes any rebellion or reaction more effective. While you’ve been excited about pursuing your goals with Mars at the top of your solar chart, if you’ve been overdoing this or pressuring yourself to succeed, you’re likely to need a break that refreshes now. If schedules are interrupted, this may very well turn into a positive, since it’s possible the changes you make can bring you to a better place. Doing your own thing can be good for you, but it may be better to avoid making a splash as you do. Focus on goals that make YOU feel happy and accomplished, rather than focusing on what others think is right for you. This can also be a time for breaking free of a situation that you attempted a few months back but didn’t quite complete.

Gemini
Gemini

Today you may feel a desire to break out of your usual boundaries, dear Gemini, but a small part of you may not be willing to change. Feeling moody or uninspired may be holding you back from entirely breaking out of your shell and pursuing or meeting your goals. These feelings may be arising due to uneasiness about a re-emerging problem in your life. Try not to act out or make decisions impulsively, as what may seem important today may be seen completely differently with some distance and perspective later. Try to focus on finding healthy outlets for expressing this need for freedom that’s been building inside of you. This may be a week in which you take action on a matter that first arose in May, and you now feel more equipped to handle. Putting something behind you is essential now, although it’s best not to be too hasty.

Cancer
Cancer

With Mars in a challenging aspect to Uranus today, dear Cancer, impulsivity and willfulness can be themes. A strong desire for change in your life can be looming, but focusing in on exactly what and how you want to change is the part that is most challenging! You may feel some confusion on whether you wish for distance or want to jump in with both feet when it comes to your relationships. Although you have been feeling a need for more intensity lately, the parts of you that desire a healthy bit of distance can emerge now, which may lead to misunderstandings with others if you are not fully aware of why you are feeling this way. Look for ways to nurture the feelings of independence you are feeling, while also keeping yourself open to exploring your emotions. This is a week of feeling more empowered to make long-overdue changes, although you may need to do some battle with your feelings first.

Leo
Leo

Feelings of being ignored or not taken seriously may come to a head today, dear Leo. You may experience people disagreeing with the way you approach your work or your goals. Tensions and frustrations may arise in your career, but it’s best to avoid making decisions emotionally. You may discover later that you were not quite ready to jump into (or out of) something. Although you may feel like you don’t know how to get closer to or better understand some people in your life, conflict can lead to new ways of understanding and working with them that can leave the relationship in a better place in the end. The key now is to get in touch with what needs changing and improving so that you can take action that adds value to your life.

Virgo
Virgo

Today can be a day where you feel like too many little things are going wrong, dear Virgo, but don’t let that get you down! Although these problems may seem to be coming about randomly, they are likely a result of a problem that wasn’t wholly dealt with in the past. Health and work-related tensions may reach a boiling point today after having expended a lot of energy on these matters in recent weeks. Take today to give yourself a break from these goals so that you can act more spontaneously or explore your feelings more fully. Disruptions in your schedule may allow for just that, in fact! However, if you really want to get things done, when deciding areas that need to change, avoid acting on a whim. Instead, release frustrations by pouring your energy into improvements.

Libra
Libra

Today is a day that pushes change and your life forward, dear Libra, as Mars and Uranus form a square today. This first happened in May and then again in August, and can now point to a release or turning point. Although you may be feeling intensely preoccupied and excited about a specific task, project, or relationship, you need to step back a bit from preoccupations. In fact, this may happen without trying with disruptions or changes in schedule that allow for these things. Areas of your life that have caged you in, even if it has happened willingly, can now feel overwhelming. Making plans to make improvements to areas of your life makes more sense and is far more helpful than resisting change or bringing on change through impulsive actions, so be sure to reflect and make deliberate decisions now.

Scorpio
Scorpio

Your close relationships and your domestic world may have some surprises in store for you, dear Scorpio. Keeping yourself flexible will be vital to moving through any surprises gracefully. You may clash with a romantic partner or a member of your family today. Or, a show of independence from someone around you may come about suddenly, leaving you to handle issues or tasks on your own. The day’s Mars-Uranus square can prompt a pressing need to release yourself from something or someone you have been focusing too much energy on. Take this opportunity to plan for improvements in other areas of your life, rather than focusing obsessively on one aspect, and it can be a fruitful time. This is a week of releasing yourself from a restrictive situation that feels a long time coming, so be as mindful and self-aware as possible.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

You may feel personal projects and interests to be especially engrossing these days, dear Sagittarius, with Mars in your solar third house. Don’t let this excitement lead to ignoring your other needs, however! Circumstances now may help you along if you have been a little too obsessed, as change is in the air. You may be feeling especially enterprising but there is also a tendency to push something forward rashly, which can set you back. If current activities are interfering with your happiness and the order or structure in your life, take the time to try to restore that order today. Identify which parts of your life require more flexibility, and carefully consider what needs to be done to achieve this even if you feel pressure to find a quick solution. Don’t let impatience prevail, as a Mars-Uranus clash today tends to lead to rash decision-making. However, do recognize the need for constructive change.

Capricorn
Capricorn

You may be feeling the more erratic or disordered parts in your life more strongly today, dear Capricorn, which can lead to tension and perhaps unexpected disruptions. Watch for stubbornness in regards to sticking to what you know and doing things on your own. If you’ve been resistant to change, Uranus won’t mind pushing you out of your comfort zone! It’s better to anticipate what needs to change and being proactive about it. Tension can arise in areas of your life that have been preoccupying your mind, leading to feelings of restlessness. Alternatively, you may experience conflict with someone over issues of values or respect. Frustrations can come from an inner clash between wanting to take a risk and preferring to stay in your comfort zone. Take both sides into consideration as you move forward — take steps forward rather than huge leaps for best results now.

Aquarius
Aquarius

Distractions and disruptions may be arising left and right, dear Aquarius, as Mars clashes with Uranus. Mars is in your sign, and Uranus is your ruler, so this is personal! Issues may come to a head for you, or for people around you, especially regarding matters that have remained stagnant and resistant to change, possibly since May. Keep an open mind when it comes to change, but don’t go all in by making rebellious and impatient decisions. Taking a small break from projects that you have been invested in lately can help restore a sense of order in your life. Take time to release some of the tension that has been building up from feeling restricted or overruled recently, but try to do so constructively! Rather than rushing into situations loudly and angrily, communicate your needs in healthy, constructive ways and take the time to understand yourself and your needs.

Pisces
Pisces

Although you may be feeling unsettled, dear Pisces, you may want to avoid pushing things today. A feeling of a need for change is present now with Mars in your privacy sector forming a tense aspect with Uranus. Areas of discontent in your life may be harder to fully identify now, leading to a generalized feeling of frustration that may arise randomly. These days, you may be feeling more independent and perhaps introverted, while also keeping an interest in being open to connections with others and communication. Be wary of putting too much of your energy into one specific task or project, as it can backfire by disrupting many other areas of your life. Try to seek out a healthier balance by not over-focusing on one or two aspects of your life while ignoring other areas. Thankfully, you are exceptionally creative today, and you are more easily able to come up with interesting and successful solutions to inner conflicts.

If You Were Born Today, September 17

Happy Birthday Tracy
If You Were Born Today, September 17

You’re a very practical person, yet also attuned to spiritual values. You expect a lot from others, but even more from yourself. The tendency to be controlling should be watched, as well as the tendency to be overly controlled, guarded and self-contained. You are very hardworking and have amazing organizational skills. You are also extremely helpful to others and have a unique sense of humor. You could find much success in intellectual pursuits. You dream big dreams, and sometimes are quite discontented with everyday realities. Even so, you can be somewhat skeptical, simply because your mind is highly analytical. Famous people born today: Hank Williams, Anne Bancroft, Elvira, John Ritter, William Carlos Williams, Roddy McDowell, Kyle Chandler.

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 making hasty decisions as a result. 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 are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications this year, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life. Even so, your studies, learning, and focus run deep this year. You’re likely to find some especially engrossing projects and activities during this period that keep you busy and engaged.

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.

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.

The year ahead is likely to be an especially enterprising one, although at times a bit erratic! In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat during this period so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. In other areas, you’re super-focused and determined to succeed. 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 spending.

 

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 Monday, September 17

Aries
Aries

While you’ve been thriving on a feeling that you’re free and can be spontaneous in the last couple of days, dear Aries, the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart, and you’re seeking out the comfort of rules. You have quite a line-up in this sector of your chart, and getting a sense of your priorities now not only makes sense, but you enjoy it. Vesta begins its transit of this area today and will stick around through to the end of November, boosting motivation levels and improving your focus on satisfying work and goals. You are more patient, focused, and persistent in the pursuit of your goals, and your work may involve more than the usual organizing, leading, and managing. The Moon aligns with Saturn and Vesta today, bringing your responsibilities and performance into sharp emotional focus, and high on your list of concerns and priorities. While others are clearly watching now, you’re motivated to do your very best not necessarily for the critics but for yourself.

Taurus
Taurus

With the Moon’s move into your adventure sector today, dear Taurus, you’re beginning to crave more light and space on an emotional level. Even so, you have Vesta, Saturn, and Pluto in this sector, urging you to be productive, organized, and on top of things! It’s a good time to reach out to others, learn, and expand your mind. In fact, you’re entering a cycle today, lasting through to the end of November, that helps you focus, concentrate, and prioritize, mainly related to education and connection. It’s an active cycle in which to pursue educational and cultural interests with more commitment and passion. There may be a wake-up call or a need to fill a responsibility today, but you feel pleasantly busy and needed now. A desire to get serious about something you’re learning can overcome you today, and it’s a great time to do some research or homework. Serious learning, studying, and thinking flow well.

Gemini
Gemini

With the Moon’s move into your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, you begin to crave more intimate connections, an absorbing activity, or a deeper understanding of your life. The Moon meets up with Vesta and Saturn today, putting you in an unusually serious frame of mind. You can feel determined. A block or responsibility can get in the way of doing what you enjoy, or you could feel a little low if you’re focusing on what you lack instead of what you have, however. Facing reality or dealing with an obstacle can ultimately move you on a path towards exciting improvements and getting yourself back on track. The motivation to kick a bad habit or change your life in positive ways can emerge now. In fact, Vesta has just begun a transit of this area of your solar chart where Saturn and Pluto are already transiting. Until December 1st, you have increased and focused energy for work, research, and self-renewal. This can be a time of steadfast dedication to a special project or pursuit, and you may find that you’re so motivated and intrigued with what you’re doing that you work tirelessly.

Cancer
Cancer

Relationships come into sharper emotional focus today, dear Cancer, with the Moon’s move into your partnership sector. Activities with a companion fare best. While this Moon transit lasts only a couple of days, you’re also entering a cycle today that lasts through to the end of November, encouraging much focus on taking special care of your relationships. This can work in several ways. For example, there may be a special someone in your life who motivates you to set important work or projects in motion. Or, there is a need to stay active in a partnership as an active purpose or focus can help improve your relationships. This can be a time of a bit of obsession with your connections, though, so do watch for going overboard to the detriment of other life departments! Today, a mature, forthright approach in your dealings is your best bet. Even so, a person in your life may remind you of a responsibility, or there can be a criticism to deal with, and this can temporarily deflate you. Keep in mind that even if someone seems to be a downer now, they may have a point! Extract the constructive out of any critique you may need to face now, and discard the rest.

Leo
Leo

Today is outstanding for attention to practical matters, dear Leo, as you’re inclined to want to settle things before moving on to other activities. You want to be productive and useful, and there can be a call to service now. A new influence with you today through to the end of November is powerful for bringing more order and structure to your daily routines, for committing to a work project or a health and wellness program, and for genuinely enjoying the work you do or services you provide. There may be a new and improved health plan, routine, or work focus coming together or unfolding in the coming weeks, and it’s exciting. With Saturn and Pluto already guests in your work and health sector, it’s especially important to watch for over-work, which, in the end, is counterproductive! Today, you have an emotional need to get on top of your everyday affairs. Taking care of unfinished work or getting back on track with a wellness program can be satisfying and even soothing.

Virgo
Virgo

The Moon moves into your sector of fun, romance, and creative expression, dear Virgo, and you can experience a greater need than usual for release through recreation. Even so, your idea of relaxation these days can be another person’s idea of hard work! This is due to heavyweights Saturn and Pluto and their long-term transits of this sector. These planets rarely let you unwind, encouraging productivity. Today, Vesta joins in for a more than ten-week stay. Today, you’re particularly drawn to spending time doing productive things, finding this to be soothing and satisfying. You can have great success working on a creative project or refining a skill, studying, or adding structure or form to a project. Going forward, too, you can benefit from a more dedicated, committed approach to creative projects, love relationships, children, or hobbies. Do watch for a perfectionistic or obsessive approach if it goes too far. Otherwise, it’s a strong cycle for feeling focused and purposeful — and may even be healing.

Libra
Libra

The Moon spends moves into your home sector today, dear Libra, reminding you of your need for personal space and security. It meets up with both Saturn and Vesta here, and you may need to do some work before you relax! These bodies remind you of your domestic responsibilities. Attention to home and family is essential now, but be sure to avoid doing so to the point of feeling burdened, as you need some rest and comfort, too. Calming, simple activities can be most appropriate now. Going forward, though, with Vesta just beginning its ten-week transit of this sector of your solar chart, a more dedicated and focused approach to your domestic world can be very healing and rewarding. You might be working from home, or working ON the home, and this can be satisfying.

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon heads into your solar third house today, dear Scorpio, and this puts extra emphasis on your mental world. Its sobering alignment with Saturn and Vesta can get you in a productive frame of mind. You not only want to make connections, but you also want to feel that things are going somewhere! This can serve to remind you of your responsibilities or the need to brush up on your skills, study, and be productive. A bit of self-discipline can go a long way today. Getting your duties out of the way can be soothing. There can be something beneficial to learn through your communications or through information that comes in now. Traditional approaches to your work or projects are favored. In fact, Vesta is just beginning an over ten-week cycle of this area of your solar chart, and this dedicated energy will stick around through to the end of November. You can be particularly devoted to your projects, learning, and communications.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

The Moon moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re beginning to focus on your practical affairs, comfort levels, and personal belongings more than usual. The Moon lines up with Saturn and Vesta, suggesting that this focus on the material world makes you feel more secure today. In fact, it may even be necessary. While the Moon will move on from here in a couple of days, Vesta is sticking around here for over ten weeks, encouraging a stronger focus on making your life more comfortable, safe, and secure. You can be singularly focused on earthy, comforting, and natural activities that help you to heal and cleanse. You’re in excellent shape now and going forward for applying yourself to projects and money-making goals.

Capricorn
Capricorn

The Moon enters your sign today, dear Capricorn, and you’re coming out of your shell, wanting to connect with the rest of the world after a couple of days of keeping a bit of a low profile. Vesta enters your sign today, too, and until December 1st, you’re in an excellent position for focusing on personal goals, health efforts, and independent projects. Your dedication and commitment are more evident to others, and you may be recognized for these traits, although there can be times when you’re so focused on your needs and projects that people in your life feel a little left out. The Moon meets up with Vesta and Saturn today, and this can remind you of your duties, limits, or responsibilities. Taking care of your obligations can, in fact, make you feel good and secure. This is a powerful time for identifying your priorities.

Aquarius
Aquarius

The Moon heads into your privacy sector today, dear Aquarius, and while you may prefer to operate in the background or keep a low profile, you are inclined to stay busy. Vesta also moves into this sector of your chart for a much more extended stay – until December 1st. This can bring you benefits from working behind the scenes, or it may simply point to a time when you’re working more determinedly and happily on your own. You may need more solitude to get an important project done, and you have a stronger need to regroup and recoup your energy. What you do in private, the services and support you provide, and the emotions you feel are all powerful and are at the heart of many of the things you do in the rest of your life. It’s a robust time for committing to a program to heal, cleanse, and rest. The Moon aligns with Saturn today, reminding you of your limits, responsibilities, or current challenges. It’s an excellent time for identifying those things that have been weighing you down and putting them behind you.

Pisces
Pisces

You begin a cycle today, lasting through to the end of November, that’s excellent for networking or collaboration, dear Pisces. Working with others towards a common goal can be in focus, but it’s also an active time for working towards a cherished dream independently. Focusing on long-term happiness goals is, in fact, healing and rewarding in the coming weeks, and with Saturn and Pluto in the same sector, you can really push the envelope and get things done. There is a slight risk that you might become a little too wrapped up in these projects at the expense of other areas of your life, though. Watch this tendency, and you’ll be in a fantastic position. The Moon aligns with Saturn and Vesta today, and obligations, work, or restrictions related to your social life can come into emotional focus. The need to be productive is growing. Applying yourself to socializing, networking, connecting, and planning can be especially satisfying now.

Your Horoscopes for the Week of September 17

Your Horoscopes for the Week of September 17

VIRGO

August 23–September 22

Mars in your productivity corner feuds with erratic Uranus this week, triggering feelings of restlessness and causing you to veer off-track. Don’t be too rigid; give yourself an out when you need a brief escape from work. A sun-Mercury meetup in Virgo allows you to think through what’s best for you and express your point of view. Your communication skills are stellar now, so chime in! Both of those planets head into your worth zone next, shifting your attention from who you are to what you need and what you have. You might become preoccupied for a while dealing with finances and possessions and getting your priorities in order. When your ruling planet scuffles with Saturn late in the week, you may get discouraged thinking you don’t have what it takes to get what you want. Whether you’re seeking fun, romance or some other personal pleasure, you’re bound to view your prospects in a negative light. Fortunately, Merc hooks up with Mars hours later, coaxing you to assess what you do have going for you, then get to work solving the problem. Taking action will help you to see manageable challenges, not roadblocks. In other words, you’ve got this!

 

LIBRA

September 23–October 22

When Mars provokes Uranus this week, a sexual attraction could ignite and perhaps catch you by surprise. But given the combustible nature of this planetary combo, there’s also a chance that you’ll pursue what — or whom — you want and not get the response you’re after. This doesn’t have to be a negative; leave room for surprises! Mercury and the sun are both moving into Libra, marking the beginning of your birthday season and filling you with vitality, ideas and a silver tongue. You’re able to express yourself with tons of energy and personality and it’s totally natural to put yourself first for the next few weeks rather than being all about relationships. Focus on setting your intentions for the coming year and making the right choices for yourself. Mercury’s run-in with Saturn hints that insecurity could keep you from speaking your piece, and your family or roomies might judge what you have to say. If possible, look for constructive criticism that you can use and lessons from the past that will sharpen current ideas. Merc syncs with Mars soon after that, inspiring you to overcome hesitation and express yourself boldly, especially if it will help you get what you want. Happy solar return!

 

SCORPIO

October 23 – November 21

This week’s Mars-Uranus skirmish might prompt a sudden outburst if you’re holding in anger. Actions tend to be rather compulsive when Mars is hiding out at the base of your chart, triggering unconscious patterns. A relationship could be disrupted now, particularly if you need to break free. If you get into a conflict, you may not be able to slow down the action, but even recognizing your emotions and motives after the fact can help you regroup. Mercury and the sun slip into your subliminal corner one after the other, dialing down your energy and turning your focus inward. Your solar year is winding down, and it’s appropriate to spend time alone reflecting on the past with total honesty and acceptance. Acknowledge the bad with the good, then let it go. When Mercury goes up against Saturn, you’re liable to judge these thoughts. You can use this sobering energy for serious, private study and introspection, but don’t get down on yourself. Merc’s vibe with Mars nudges you to instead think in terms of how you can get out of old grooves and move forward. Tune into your emotions and use your intuition to guide you toward productive action.

 

SAGITTARIUS

November 22–December 21

When Mars and Uranus disagree this week, your concept of how to proceed might clash with ever-changing circumstances, and no matter how enthused you are about your ideas and plans, you’ll still need to adapt to whatever reality you’re faced with. However, if you’re looking to spark a revolution among colleagues, your assertiveness could drive change in the workplace. This is also a good transit for pushing yourself to make changes that impact your job, health or daily routine. With Mercury and the sun segueing into your humanity house, much of your attention shifts to friendships, the groups you belong to and the various roles you play in others’ lives. This makes it a good month for teamwork, socializing and professional networking. And since Mercury is the communication planet and this house also rules technology, it’s an opportune time to spread the word through social media. Mercury’s dust-up with Saturn can spell a stalemate over funds, possessions, values or priorities, and someone could say something that makes you feel less than. Fortunately, Merc vibes with Mars hours later, empowering you to speak up in no uncertain terms. Group brainstorming or a convo with a friend can fire you up to accomplish what you set out to do.

 

CAPRICORN

December 22–January 19

If you’re on a tight budget, you’ll need to guard against impulse buys this week, since just-do-it Mars in your worth zone is sparring with rebellious Uranus in your joy sector, tempting you to snatch up anything you see that you think will bring you pleasure. This is quick energy, and you can ride out the urge, waiting for it to pass, if you’re determined to exercise caution. There’s also a possibility that you’ll quickly put your resources to good use and instigate spontaneous fun, so that’s a clear upside! With Mercury and the sun climbing to the peak of your chart, your mind will be on your goals and career for a while, and you’re poised to shine in a public or professional setting. This is the Capricorn area of a chart, and your natural ambition is apt to kick in, fueling you to achieve your aims and make big plans. When Merc clashes with Saturn in Cap, you might stop yourself from speaking with authority. But this can be a useful transit for disciplined planning, where you slow down and think everything through thoroughly. Plus a Mercury-Mars confab hours later will help you identify your assets and use them to your advantage.

 

AQUARIUS

January 20–February 18

With Mars traveling through Aquarius, you’re ready to jump into action. But this mobilizing planet’s spat with Uranus suggests whatever you do could bring up unexpected emotions — and you can’t predict how your family or people you live with will respond. You can channel this somewhat volatile energy into making much needed changes that affect your living situation, though. Try to stay flexible and you may be able to further your own interests and liberate yourself from a situation you feel stuck in. As Mercury and the sun glide into your exploration corner, your lens widens and you begin to see the big picture. You’d rather broaden your mind through travel and other stimulating experiences than narrow your focus to one person or thing. Exposing yourself to more of what the world has to offer will help you grow. Mercury’s brush with Saturn is likely to give you pause as doubts, regrets or melancholy creep in. Visions of the future can be overshadowed by thoughts of the past. Luckily, Merc meshes with Mars a little later, boosting your spirits and lighting the way forward. The planets want you to voice your opinion, take positive action and advance a progressive agenda.

 

PISCES

February 19–March 20

You may need to press pause and edit yourself early in the week when rash Mars in your subliminal corner needles loose-cannon Uranus in your thinking-and-talking house. You’re liable to say something or do something you haven’t thought through if you don’t keep a close eye on your unconscious urges. If you can stay on top of the temptation to shoot from the hip, you can avoid words and actions that come back to bite you. Next, Mercury and the sun dive into your sharing-and-depth zone, prompting you to zero in on a relationship, emotional matter or passion project and give it your full attention. You’ll draw energy from closeness and be able to delve into an investigation or confide in individuals you trust. Mercury’s quarrel with Saturn reminds you to be selective in that regard, as you might feel judged by some people. But if you’re trying to get to the bottom of a weighty issue, constructive feedback could help you fine-tune your thought process. Merc joins forces with Mars hours later, which can bring a breakthrough, so keep digging into whatever is occupying your mind. If you’re engrossed in mental work, it’s best to find a low-key setting that allows you to concentrate.

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Your ruling planet gets into a tiff with Uranus in your worth zone early in the week, suggesting fluctuating self-esteem, funds or resources will have an effect on teamwork. You might also be chasing after a fresh goal and waver in your pursuit if your confidence dips and you’re not sure you have what it takes. Collaborations with others can bring about change, so don’t give up. Mercury and the sun are crossing your one-on-one angle, highlighting your connections with other individuals and encouraging dialogue. You can derive energy from your relationships in the coming weeks and discover things about yourself through your bonds — making it preferable to put aside your autonomy and reach out, consult people, partner up, engage. Mercury’s quibble with Saturn implies a conversation between equals can run into problems if one person asserts their authority over the other. Plus you might not be able to agree on goals in a relationship and may feel like you’re at an impasse. But Merc syncs with Mars soon after, putting you back on a productive path involving communication and cooperation. Bounce ideas off each other and join forces, perhaps by working together to tackle an intellectual challenge.

 

TAURUS

April 20–May 20

Your ambition is in overdrive and you’re motivated to achieve your goals, but when Mars runs headlong into Uranus in Taurus, things could get a little more complicated. You need to embrace the spirit of revolution that’s been in the air since May and recognize that what you do now may force you to change. You might have a conflict with authority figures, especially if one tries to boss you around. You’re in a rebellious mood lately and not inclined to answer to anyone. After Mercury and the sun zip into your efficiency corner, you’ll have even more energy and focus to dedicate to the tasks at hand. This can be a very productive period; you’re determined to work hard and get tons done! Your thoughts are on point, and you’re able to get organized and direct your efforts judiciously. Since Merc is sparring with Saturn, you could experience a mental block if you’re not convinced that what you’re doing is adding up to mean something. A lack of faith can take the wind out of your sails, but Mercury’s harmony with Mars blends attention to detail and critical thinking with drive and persistence. You see what needs to be done and you’re willing to do it.

 

GEMINI

May 21–June 20

A conflict between Mars and Uranus early in the week could put you in danger of taking a risk stemming from an unconscious urge to upset the apple cart. You’re eager to go out on a limb but may not be aware of your reasons. The more you strive to understand yourself, the better equipped you’ll be to act wisely and generate invigorating changes that don’t cause undesired disruption. Once Mercury and the sun arrive in your fulfillment house, you’ll get fired up to express your individuality and enjoy life. You want the freedom to be yourself and to do as you please, and having a good time is high on your priority list. Fun, romance, creativity, humor and leisurely pursuits like hobbies take precedence now. Your ruler’s dustup with Saturn implies that as eager as you are to express your feelings and personality, you still might not get the reaction you want from a particular individual. But you could get useful feedback from a partner or trusted friend if you’re discussing a creative project or piece of writing. A Mercury-Mars encounter might allude to a publishing success or a fun idea for an exciting adventure. Your risk assessment should be better with this combo!

 

CANCER

June 21–July 22

A Mars-Uranus clash could throw a wrench in your relationships early in the week. You might be torn between going all in with one person or playing the field. Or sexual sparks that come out of nowhere might change a friendship. Maneuvering for control will lead people to revolt, so ease up and give others space to go their own way. If it’s time to break free from something you’re involved in — or someone you’re involved with — this transit can be the catalyst. With Mercury and the sun dipping down to the base of your chart, your thoughts may drift to the past and you may want to duck into your Crab shell and relax rather than be out and about in the world. You’re focused on home and family and need familiar surroundings and people so you can feel grounded. Don’t hesitate to carve out alone time to unwind and contemplate your private emotions. Mercury-Saturn tension can discourage you from sharing your feelings, especially if you fear someone’s judgment. But Mercury-Mars harmony nudges you to strengthen your bond with someone by sharing your innermost thoughts. You can’t achieve true intimacy and feel understood without taking a chance.

 

LEO

July 23–August 22

As Mars squares off with Uranus this week, you might provoke an unintended reaction from higher-ups or partner with someone and get surprising results. Future plans may need to change, and hashing things out with another individual will make that happen, though it won’t feel easy. Maybe it’s time to get things out in the open and find out if you’re heading in the same direction. Mercury and the sun are skipping into your thinking-and-talking corner, revving up your brain and breathing life into your everyday encounters. Turn your attention to your communication style, default mindset, local community and siblings — and try to understand how they affect you. This is a great time for learning, taking short trips, connecting with people and expressing yourself. Since Mercury runs into trouble with Saturn, though, you might hit a stumbling block in your thought process if something doesn’t seem doable. Your thoughts are coming quickly, but you could stop short, deciding it’s just too hard. Realism should refine your thinking, not burst your bubble! Soon after, Merc jibes with Mars, encouraging you to recruit a partner to help you act on these ideas. You could also engage in a super productive convo now, so don’t back down from a challenging topic.

The Witches Magickal Journal for Monday, September 17

By Eleanor

The Witches Magickal Journal for Monday, September 17

“Ordinary fortune-tellers tell you what you want to happen; witches tell you what’s going to happen whether you want it to or not. Strangely enough, witches tend to be more accurate but less popular.”

– Terry Pratchett – The Wee Free Men

Monday: Keep the moon safe from the wolf

Easy to remember – Monday is the Moon Day. The word moon is associated with the Norse god Mona (Máni). He was pulling the moon accross the sky, trying to escape and save it from a mythological wolf. At the end of the world, the wolf will catch them and tear the moon into pieces. This apocalyptic period of the world is called Ragnarok in Norse mythology.

In Romance languages, Monday is also the Moon Day (lunes in Spanish, lundi in French, lunedi in Italian: coming from Latin Dies Lunae).

Today is Monday, September 17

 

Monday is the sacred day of the moon, personified as the goddesses Selene, Luna, and Mani. The moon is ruler of flow, affecting the changeable and impressionable aspects of people. If a full moon falls on a Monday, then the powers of the moon are at their most potent.

Deity: Mani

Zodiac Sign: Cancer

Planet: Moon

Tree: Willow

Herb: Chickweed

Stone: Agate

Animal: Crab

Element: Water

Rune: Lagu (L)

On Monday, September 17th, We Celebrate….

 

The Month of Hathor (Egypt)
HATHOR

Themes: Joy; Love; Arts; Femininity; Beauty; Sexuality; Sky

Symbols: Mirrors; Cow; Sandalwood and Rose Incense; Rattles

 

About Hathor: One of the most beloved sky goddesses in Egypt, Hathor brings happiness,romance, and an appreciation for musical arts into our lives. Sacred or erotic dances are a welcome offering for Hathor, as is any effort to beautify the body. As the patroness of the toilette, she also protects women and embodies the pinnacle of feminine qualities. Her favorite musical instrument, the sistrum (a kind of rattle), was said to banish evil wherever it was played.

To Do Today: From September 17 until October 16, Hathor reigned in Egypt. To honor this goddess, make an effort to make yourself as physically appealing as possible, then spend some time with a significant other or in a social setting. In the first case, Hathor’s favor will increase love and passion; in the second, she’ll improve your chances of finding a bed partner.

To fill your living space with Hathor’s energy, take rice or beans and put them in a plastic container (this creates a makeshift rattle). Play some lusty music and dance clockwise around every room of the home shaking the rattle. Perhaps add a verbal charm like this one:

Love, passion and bliss,
by Hathor’s power kissed!

This drives away negativity, generates joyful vibrations, promotes artistic awareness, and increases love each time you kiss someone in your home.

The Magickal Day of Mondays

 

Monday is the day of the moon itself, and it’s a day that’s connected to lunar colors like silver, white, or even a pale blue. Metals and gemstones like silver, pearl, opal and moonstone all come into play today.

There are plenty of deities associated with the moon – Thoth and Diana for instance – and herbal correspondences include many members of the mint family. Utilize wintergreen or peppermint, as well as catnip, comfrey, sage and chamomile in your workings.

When it comes to Monday magic, because of that lunar connection, it’s a good time to focus on workings related to childbearing and family life, purity and virginity, healing, wisdom, and intuition. Do a little bit of self exploration and work on developing your intuition – learn to trust your gut. Celebrate birth and life, and make some magic to fix what is broken.

Monday’s Witchery

Think for a moment on all of the witchery, magick and enchantments that you have discovered. Don’t be afraid to adjust spells to suit your own specific needs. Any gentle, illusory, and dreamy charms and spells can be enhanced when you work on the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon. Mondays are a fantastic day to boost your psychic abilities and to tune in to your intuition and empathy. It also gives you the opportunity to work with a different lunar phase each and every Monday, which means in one month you could work four different types of moon magicks on Mondays. How’s that for adding to your repertoire? You are going to have mad skills in no time at all.

So light up those lunar scented candles and add a little mystique to your outfit by wearing an enchanting lunar color. Wear your sparkling silver jewelry and maybe add a pair of dangling silver earrings or a pendant shaped like a crescent moon. Create lunar potions and philters; make a dream catcher and give it as a gift to someone you love. Burn some sandalwood or jasmine-scented incense today to inspire the glamour and magick of the moon. Slice up a favorite variety of fruit that is in season for a snack or share it with your love and enjoy his or her lunar and romantic qualities. Brew up a cup of chamomile tea, enchant it with a little moon magick, and relax and get a good night’s sleep.

Most importantly, get outside tonight and watch the moon for a while. What phase is she in? What color was the moon as she rose? Why not start a journal and write down at what location the moon rises and sets for a few seasons? This is a great way to teach you to tune in and to become more aware of the moon and the influence that she pulls into our lives. Try calling on Selene for her magickal assistance, and call Thoth for wisdom and strength. Get to know the Norse Mani and the Latvian Meness. These gods of the moon have plenty to teach, and if you allow their influence to cycle through your life, you’ll receive many blessings. Be imaginative, and create your own personal lunar magick and witchery. Go on….the moonlight becomes you

The sacred day of the Moon, personified by such goddesses as Selene, Luna, Diana, and Artemis. The Moon is ruler of flow affecting the changeable aspects of people. If a full moon falls on a Monday, its powers are at theirmmost potent. Magical aspects: peace, sleep, healing, compassion, friendships, psychic awareness, purification, and fertility

Monday is ruled by the moon – an ancient symbol of mystery and peace. Monday is a special day for mothers as the cycle of the moon has long been associated with the female menstrual cycle. Those wishing to conceive a baby would be wise to try on a Monday as the magic of motherhood is strong and pregnancy is in the air.

This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving agriculture, animals, female fertility, messages, reconciliation’s, theft, voyages, dreams, emotions, clairvoyance, home, family, medicine, cooking, personality, merchandising, psychic work, Faerie magic, and Goddess rituals.

 

Monday and the Perfect Corresponding Spell

When dealing with a weekly spell guide, Mondays are thought to be the logical day for money, love, time and meditation spells. Since Mondays are thought to be the start of the work week, it gives plenty of time for a Monday spell to gain strength throughout the rest of the week

Hands of Time Spell

Items you will need:
Both hands
6 fingers

Hold both of your hands in front of you. Stare at your hands, noticing your palms and fingers, for about thirty seconds. Then, say this chant one time:

“Palms sweaty,
From watching clocks.
No more.
One finger,
For every ten docked.
Seconds in a minute
1440 in a day.
Stop a few,
For singing birds
And trees that sway.”

This should feel like time has slowed-down and allowed you to appreciate life more.

Hildegard of Bingen

Hildegard of Bingen, Abbess of Rupertsberg (1098-1179), was known as the “Sibyl of the Rhine.” The 10th child of noble parents, Hildegard joined a monastery at age 8 and took the veil seven years later. A visionary from childhood, she wrote three mystical works, together with saints’ lives and works on natural ral history and medicine, but is more famous for her poetry and musical works. Honored in many German churches, Hildegard was never canonized, even though many miracles have been reported from her tomb.
