A Thought for Today

Rain and Native American Flute Music for Dreaming, Sleep, Relaxing

I realized before I decided to write this post that I will probably get some nasty comments because of my views and wording but that is fine with me as everyone has the right to voice their opinion. All I ask is you do it in a respectful manner without using foul language. Thank you.

On a day in the USA where most people are thrilled to have a day off of work to celebrate Christopher Colombus “discovering” America I feel it is important to remind everyone that he was not the first to discover this land. The first people to set foot on this land BCE are the real discovers of the USA, Central, and South America. Today we refer to these people in the USA as NAtive Americans to be “politically correct.” I know first hand that most would rather be referred to as American Indians. I feel…

About Tomorrow……

In case you have forgotten, I have a doctor’s appointment and we will be off the internet. I know it seems silly to close the office down when I have a doctor’s appointment but…….I have some mischievous witches that work here. It seems every time I leave the office all heck breaks loose. Since this is the case, I have found it just best to close the office. That stops a lot of apologizing, cleaning up messes and mending hurt feelings.

So we will see you Wednesday. You have all the info for tomorrow today. Hey, I might have been by myself but I don’t think I did that bad of job. But the info is there for you so just pretend we are here when we ain’t.

Till Wednesday,

Lady of the Abyss

The Planet Tracker for Tuesday, October 9: Jupiter in Scorpio

Intuitive, Magnetic, Self-Reliant

October 10, 2017 – November 8, 2018

Jupiter is the largest of all the planets in Astrology. It is known as the “greater benefic,” meaning it is also the most beneficial of all the planets. Jupiter is responsible for the expansion, growth, and optimism in our lives. It symbolizes good luck and fortune, and is associated with the higher mind, philosophy, truth, and religion. Jupiter has a reputation for blessing us with luck and abundance, and this could come from its ability to give us a larger lens through which we can view the world.

It makes for an interesting — and complex — cosmic combination when outgoing Jupiter moves into inward-looking Scorpio. The normally optimistic outlook of the giant planet is tempered by a need to consider the complications that could arise from our actions. While this energy may take our greatest hopes and dreams down a notch, it does offer a much-needed reality check that helps us get concrete results.

When Jupiter is in Scorpio

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, and Scorpio is the sign that deals with sexuality, birth, death, and power. So when Jupiter is in Scorpio, these topics could bubble up to the surface and take a front row seat in our minds. Our fears could become exaggerated during this transit — but this can be Jupiter in Scorpio’s blessing. We are being given a chance to confront the things we’ve previously ignored so we can make necessary adjustments.

Jupiter in Scorpio could be a time when a spark is reignited for something we abandoned long ago. We’re being encouraged to consider what we desire in the depths of our hearts, and are reminded that success is ours if we put everything we have into whatever we pursue. Between Scorpio’s magnetism and Jupiter’s good luck, the world truly is our oyster when these two powerhouses come together.

Scorpio is a deeply emotional sign that is concerned with intimacy and our innermost feelings. Jupiter’s time in this sign doesn’t just encourage us to embrace these feelings, it wants us to expand upon them. This transit not only helps us get in touch with our own emotions, but we may develop an emotional closeness with others like we’ve never experienced before.

The one downside to Jupiter in Scorpio is the possibility of going overboard. Moderation doesn’t come easily to Jupiter or Scorpio. So when the planet of “more, more, more” and the sign of “can’t get enough” come together, the line between enthusiasm and obsession could become very thin.

Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio

Extroverted Jupiter takes a walk on the introverted side when it turns retrograde. Jupiter normally advocates for idealism, forward momentum, and new opportunities. However, when it takes a backward trip through the sky each year, we’re being encouraged to slow down and ask the tough questions about where we are and where we’re headed.

So, during Jupiter’s retrograde through the sign of Scorpio, we can expect to dig deep and uncover what is and isn’t working in our lives. Are we doing the things that feed our souls? Are we acting in alignment with our values? Are we living up to the goals we set for ourselves? While we may not like some of the answers we come up with, Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio helps us see exactly what we need to change to truly transform our future.

If you were born with Jupiter in Scorpio

“I create my own luck” should be your tagline! While it’s your magnetism that helps you attract opportunities, it’s your shrewd business sense and unwavering commitment that brings you the most success. And because of your secretive nature, you do well in environments where privacy and confidentiality are important.

Your gift of attraction extends beyond your professional life. As someone with their Jupiter in Scorpio, you possess a charm and inner strength that draws others to you. You know how to use your gift of intuition to get what you want, giving you a certain degree of social power.

No topic is off limits for those born with their Jupiter in Scorpio! You don’t shy away from discussing or learning about things that others would consider taboo or forbidden, because you want to get to the bottom of just about everything. Psychology, sexuality, life and death, and the occult are just a few topics you enjoy sinking your teeth into.

The pairing of Jupiter (the king of abundance) and Scorpio (the queen of fixation) in your chart could mean you overdo it at times. Work, power, love, sex … you go all-in. By focusing this passion and intensity into other areas of your life, you can reap huge rewards.

The Planet Tracker for October 8: Moon in Libra

Diplomatic, Creative, Partnership-oriented

October 7 – October 9, 2018

Before we start talking about the Libra Moon, let’s begin with a bit of information about the Moon itself. Astrologers consider the Moon a planet. It moves so quickly through the sky that it passes through each of the 12 zodiac signs every month.

When the Moon is in Libra

It doesn’t matter what your Moon sign is because for a couple of days a month, we all feel the influence of the transiting Libra Moon. When the Moon is in the accommodating sign of Libra, you will feel a little bit more focused on creating tranquility, beauty, and harmony all around you. Libra doesn’t just appreciate balance — Libra also seeks out imbalance and fixes it. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to play peacemaker during this transit!

When the Moon is in Libra you might also feel a bit like Ginger Rogers, and everyone and everything you meet is Fred Astaire. During this time of the Libra Moon, your mantra may be “grace in space.” If you meet an obstacle or encounter resistance, you’ll be able to dance like you expected it to be there. Because Libra’s natural skills are diplomacy and negotiation, the Moon in Libra gives you the ability to use charm and tact to get what you want.

New Moon in Libra

The New Moon is all about a new cycle, and the Libra New Moon is all about finding ways to reestablish balance that has been lost. Finding a sense of balance allows us to deal with life’s issues smoothly, and helps us to discover the peaceful neutral point from which clarity, common sense, and cooperation come from. Whether it’s in personal or business relationships, the influence of the Libra New Moon helps us see both sides of any story.

This may also be the time when you initiate new relationship, or get a fresh start in an ongoing one. A New Moon in Libra will gently nudge you to hit the emotional reset button and start over so that you can look to the horizon with renewed anticipation.

Full Moon in Libra

Every Full Moon is a culmination of a monthly cycle, and the social Libra Full Moon is no exception as it challenges you to manage your desire for companionship with your need for independence. Our connection to others and relationships are always at the forefront during a Full Moon so this isn’t a surprise, but it is even more noticeable during the Full Moon in Libra. Because you’ll have a heightened awareness of your emotions, you’ll have incredible clarity about any inequity in your partnerships.

If you were born with the Moon in Libra

Libra is the negotiator of the Zodiac. They can easily see both sides of every argument, find the middle ground, and deal with the situation (and the people in it) respectfully. Because of this, those born when the Moon was in Libra have the reputation of being incredibly cooperative and compromising.

Libra’s need for harmony extends to the world around them. They have an eye for design, and appreciate all forms of symmetry and composition. Their homes often have a tranquil energy with a neat appearance that infuse a sense of serenity into their lives since Libra thrives in calm environments.

If there’s something Libra is well-known for, it’s being social! In fact, they thrive when they have an abundance of friendship and love in their lives. This doesn’t necessarily mean they are party animals. Libras are fine with going out just as much as they are staying in and entertaining in their homes. Their pople-oriented nature also makes them natural flirts so it’s not surprising that they often have quite a few admirers.

Libra’s love of people makes them an extremely caring and sympathetic friend, and you can certainly count on them to lend a listening ear when needed. Additionally, they are very fair so you know you’re getting an objective perspective from them that will help you with whatever problem you’re having. A Libra friend is an amazing friend indeed!

Your Witches Rune for October 9th is Woman

Today’s Witches Rune


Meaning: The first meaning of this rune is quite obvious: it represents women. Any woman that is important in the question, whether you know her or not, will be represented by this rune. Mother, sister, aunt, grandma, a female boss, friend, lover or even enemy… all can be symbolized by the appearance of this rune.

In a more general sense, this rune is related to traditional female abilities and characteristics, such as giving birth, nurturing, comforting and healing. When this rune appears, you can count on the sympathy of others towards you or your situation. In its most negative aspects, the Woman rune can show over-protectiveness, a patronizing attitude or co-dependency. It often strives to maintain the status quo, refusing to change even if the situation is bad.

The Woman rune is connected to nurturing – nurturing a relationship, a person or a project. Like the Moon rune, it can be related to finding a safe place to rest and heal, but while the Moon implies a solitary retreat, the Woman often shows that you need to go back to the people you trust, the people you feel safe with.

Healing is another strong aspect of this symbol, as well as teaching. You can be both the patient/student or the healer/teacher when this rune appears. This rune is also connected to creativity, but in a way that is different from the Romance rune. While the latter is about the conception of a project – the initial stages of creation – the Woman is about the birth of this project. When your creation is brought out into the world, fully manifested.

In relationship readings, this rune isn’t bad, but rather weak. While it can indicate subtle ties between people, these are usually so, so subtle that the partners can easily drift away from each other. It can show that one of the partners sees the other as someone who needs to be protected and healed, rather than an equal. Usually, the romance is a bit stagnated when this rune appears, or very close to becoming a friendship.

Your Witches Rune for October 8 is The Blank Rune


Witches Rune for the Day

The Blank Rune

Meaning: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path.
