Your Ogham Reading for February 6

Your Ogham Reading

 

Huathe-Hawthorn

The Celts often believed the hawthorn to be a portal to the Otherworld. The hawthorn is a hardy plant commonly used for hedges and great firewood. It can even be an invasive species at times. The key points to remember with the letter Huathe are obstacles, walls, and obstructions. Its ability to form a natural wall gives the diviner an idea in what this symbol can mean to them and their lives.

Fortune – To overcome obstacles and walls you must make a personal sacrifice, to gain we must lose something of ourselves!

 

 

 

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 Daily Tarot Cards for February 6

Tarot Card of the Day

Ten of Wands

 

 

This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

It doesn’t matter that he’s overloaded and underfed. With this card, you have to do whatever it takes to get to completion — nothing can be allowed to interfere.

Tarot Love Card of the Day

The Emperor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Pope

The Pope represents pure masculine energy, and even if you’re female you’re going to be identifying more with your male counterparts today. The Pope shows you that coming to terms with past mistakes and taking responsibility for them in the present eases sexual tension, so let go of the past to free yourself from your inhibitions. You actually have quite the skill set when it comes to making sexual moves, but waiting until the time is right before taking the plunge can be a real turn-on. Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

FEBRUARY 2019 PET HOROSCOPES

FEBRUARY 2019 PET HOROSCOPES

By Jennifer Angel

ARIES Pet Scope:
With the influence of the new Moon, your Aries pet is likely to be to be friends with everyone this month, even those people and pets on the walk that he or she has previously snubbed. But make sure they look great, because they can be a little vain during February.

TAURUS Pet Scope:
Your normal predictable Taurus pet can surprise you this month, so don’t assume anything. With Mars, the planet of action, moving to their sign mid-month you will need to watch them carefully and take note of any uncharacteristic behavior.

GEMINI Pet Scope:
Your Gemini pet can be in their mind sorting out what mischief they can get up to. Anything really just to get your attention. And they can be very inventive about it, particularly as Mercury, their ruler, will enter their area of getting down to business mid-month.

CANCER Pet Scope:
Your Cancer pet is a lover but with so much activity occurring in their relationship zone, they can seem a little needy at times and at other times aloof. Really, they are in control, not you, just in case you hadn’t figured that out, as yet.

LEO Pet Scope:
The new Moon opposite Leo, in the area of relationships, signifies the beginning of a new attitude, but the energy of the full Moon can make your little lion self conscious. Give them plenty of reassurance that they are loved, and make sure you come home when you say you will.

VIRGO Pet Scope:
Busy, busy, busy, a Virgo pet always seems to have something to do; they’re on a mission, even if it is hiding their treats in a safe place for later. But the full Moon in their sign this month can have them feeling a little out of sorts, so be careful of accidents.

LIBRA Pet Scope:
Home comforts are always important to Libra, but more so this month with the influence of Venus, so make sure you keep your pet’s bed and safe place cozy and comfy for them. And with the energy of the full Moon, they will easily sense any disharmony, which can unsettle them.

SCORPIO Pet Scope:
With Mars energy, your pet will be busy this month just doing what they need to do to make sure their daily routine is accomplished. They are also likely to be talkative, so listen and watch carefully as they attempt to communicate with you.

SAGITTARIUS Pet Scope:
Your usually confident Sagittarian pet may need extra reassurance this month to let them know how fabulous and adorable they are, and of course, that they really are still your best friend. Don’t hold back, they deserve it.

CAPRICORN Pet Scope:
An abundance of planets and activity in and around your Capricorn pet’s sign can be unnerving, so keep a close eye on them and pay attention to anything that is out of character. Don’t make assumptions; even a Capricorn can surprise you at times.

AQUARIUS Pet Scope:
New Moon energy can have your Aquarian pet jumping for joy. However, they may also seem a little emotional in the way of needing extra attention, or they can seem deep in pet-thought as they snooze the day away, so be mindful to give them some space.

PISCES Pet Scope:
Sometimes your Pisces pet is happy to just be alone and get lost in pet dreamland, but this month, it’s more likely that they will want to mix and mingle, both with humans and other pets. Make time to spend with your best friend and they will appreciate it.

Your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, February 7

Your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, February 7

By Kelli Fox

Aries

March 21- April 19

Today it’s important to make an emotional connection with the people around you. Keep in mind that many people are feeling more sensitive now than usual — you included. So keep biting comments and snarky jokes to a minimum! You might just be poking fun, but someone else could get their feelings hurt. And if you’re the one who feels a little blue today, give yourself some space to sit with those emotions.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Welcome to a relaxed and relaxing day. Your internal transmitter is set to a lower frequency than usual. It feels wonderful just to hang out at home, or any place where you feel comfortable. If you have access to water, it’s a perfect day to go for a swim or to de-stress by a river or ocean. The gentle sound of the waves will soothe your soul at a deep level.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

You might be most comfortable in an intellectual realm. But today, you’re thrust into the hazy realm of emotions. Perhaps someone close to you is feeling especially loving, or maybe they’re in a gloomy state of mind. Or maybe you’re the one who’s feeling things much more intensely than usual. Either way, don’t try to joke or rationalise these feelings away. Sit with them. Absorb them. Let them wash through you like water.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

Hang out at home or with good friends, and just take it easy today. You’re feeling quite centred and relaxed, but your energy may be a bit low. Watching a movie might be the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon or evening! Or call a long-distance friend and catch up on your lives. If they’re going through a tough time, you can lend a strong shoulder and a sympathetic ear.

Leo

July 23-August 22

Feelings of vulnerability could arise today. You’re known as the strong, courageous one among your friends or coworkers. But now, having to be bold or decisive could make you want to hide under the covers! Bolster your courage by reminding yourself that you have a lot of support to draw from. Lots of people adore you, and most are ready with a sympathetic ear if you need to talk out an issue.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Welcome to a passive, low-energy day. Your usual ability to focus may fly right out the window. You might find yourself daydreaming when you’re supposed to be working, or falling asleep when you’re supposed to be alert. Make time for a nap, or do something quiet like reading or watching a movie. Most of all, let your thoughts wander. Embrace any feelings or impressions that arise, no matter how silly they seem.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’re in a sensitive mood today. Someone’s rude, crass or uncaring comment could get under your skin even more than usual. The good news is, you’re kindhearted enough to give people a lot of space and understanding, even if they behave in an unkind way. This is part of being a good leader: You lead by example, which inspires others to live up to the standard of behaviour you set.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Seek out the company of someone you love and trust today. You need that close, affectionate connection and the other person probably does, too. A good talk or a warm hug is like a soothing balm for a troubled soul. The good news is, you’re feeling rather centred and serene. You can lend an ear or give excellent advice, but a simple smile is all you need in return.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Spiritual pursuits are highlighted today. Meditate, do yoga or visit a place of worship. This might be a church or temple, but it could also be your favourite spot in the woods or at the top of a mountain. You, perhaps more than most, derive great meaning from natural settings that afford you a broad perspective on the world and your own place in it. Seek this type of experience now.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

If your energy is a bit low today, don’t push yourself to work as hard as you usually do. You often ignore your body’s cues in favour of sticking to your task list. But right now it’s a good idea to make space in your schedule for some pleasurable relaxation. Grab a friend or a family member and camp out on the couch. Watch a movie or read a good book. Enjoy some downtime.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

Today you’re drawn to spiritual pursuits. Simple scientific explanations don’t satisfy you now. You want to look more deeply than that into life’s mysteries. Participate in activities that help you look beyond logic to the more magical side of life. It’s also a good day to visit any place of reverence or worship that’s meaningful to you, whether that’s a church, a temple or a mountaintop.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Don’t be surprised if you need extra sleep today. You certainly need extra time to daydream. If you work at a demanding job, you may find it difficult to concentrate. Your mind just keeps wandering! There’s no sense in fighting this, unless you absolutely have to get something concrete accomplished. But it would be better to shift meetings and other demands to another day, so you can let your thoughts roam.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 6

FEBRUARY 06, 2019 HOROSCOPES by Jennifer Angel

Moon and Venus energy highlights being both realistic and idealistic.

 

Aries MARCH 21-APRIL 19
Thanks to the stars, this year promises to throw a flurry of activity at your professional life. You may have to rearrange your schedule so you are more productive in the time you have available. It could also be advantageous to change some business practices or routines to allow for more social time, which will allow you to de-stress from the business day.

Taurus APRIL 20-MAY 20
You’ll want to listen to what your instincts tell you right now. There are changes coming up and you want to make the decisions that are right for you not only now but for the future. Don’t get involved with time-wasters either; you have much to accomplish in a short time, and don’t have time to entertain anyone who does not serve a purpose in your plan.

Gemini MAY 21-JUNE 20
When you follow your heart, whether for work or love, it will lead you in the right direction. However, while doing what you know is right for you, be mindful of other people’s needs. And be mindful that you may need to make some compromises to achieve your end result.

Cancer JUNE 21-JULY 22
It’s likely that something you put off a while back will come up for discussion now. When it’s about business, you should pay attention to what your intuition tells you. With official business you will want to consult an expert or two, so make use of your resources and reach out.

Leo JULY 23-AUG. 22
You will want to assume total control of your life right now in order to take clear an outstanding situation. Don’t leave the details for someone else to sort out; make sure you have your hand in everything with your name on it. You will also want to make sure you don’t get overly emotional and keep everything on a business level.

 

Virgo AUG. 23-SEPT. 22
The world consists of unique and different people and it is unrealistic to think you will get along amicably with everyone, nor do you want to. However, just because someone has a different point of view doesn’t mean they are wrong, just different. Keep an open mind, and while you stay steadfast with your views allow others to also have their opinion.

Libra SEPT. 23-OCT. 22
Family matters are likely to demand your attention and when money is concerned, it will be wise to stay firm with your decisions. Tread carefully with anyone who seems intent on telling you what to do and how to do it. When you envisage an outcome it is important to be optimistic but you also want to be realistic.

Scorpio OCT. 23-NOV. 21
You may be pressed for time right now, but you will still want to ensure you do the job right. When you rush it’s easy to overlook a few details. Manage your time efficiently and put effort into multitasking. If you can streamline certain processes, you will end up with more wiggle room at the end of the day.

Sagittarius NOV. 22-DEC. 21
Although it’s great to do what you love, you also have to do what pays the bills. If you plan to take on a new endeavor, ensure there will be some sort of gold at the end of the rainbow before you dive in. Learn from those around you who have managed the art of success and financial abundance, and adopt their principles.

Capricorn DEC. 22-JAN. 19
With so many disgruntled people in this world, you should be careful about who you share your business with. Don’t have a private conversation near anyone who can start the gossip train in motion. Some people have nothing better to do with their time than spread rumors. Talk only to those who’ve proven their trust worthiness.

Aquarius JAN. 20-FEB. 18
A financial situation can finally clear up this week thanks to some influential friends. There are more important things in life than money, but it is necessary to survive and therefore being financially independent does provide you with peace of mind. Just don’t rely on it to provide you with everything you need in life, like happiness or satisfaction.

Pisces FEB. 19-MARCH 20
No matter what you do for a living, make sure you do it to the best of your ability. It’s important to keep a strong work ethic and hold yourself to high standards. If you are a consummate professional and show you are willing to put in extra effort, you can elevate yourself above the competition.

Had A Temporary Power Outage

Sorry for the break in the posts, but it is storming here. Rain is coming down in buckets, lightning, thunder, the whole nine yards. Never seen such storms in February but these storms took our power out temporarily. We apologize for the outage but Mother Nature has a mind of her own, lol! Now we get to play catch up. Thank you for your patience with us during the outage. Now back to work,

Your Love Horoscopes for February 6 – February 7

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

If you feel you’re giving 100% to improving love life circumstances and progress isn’t happening, then don’t convince yourself that unseen forces are determined to create obstacles. Adopting a negative or pessimistic attitude toward what’s taking longer to manifest than you’d hoped isn’t the answer, either. Consider if your vision of what you want to see happen is tipped too much toward your needs. Chances are, it is.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

With your enthusiasm and passion levels boosted wonderfully now, you could be tempted to adopt a no-nonsense, gung-ho approach to affairs of the heart. However, it’s regarding communication that you might need to dial back your fervent energy. It could be easy to overlook how domineering you are conversationally, and this will be sexy on one level but off-putting on another. Conversations can still be powerfully alluring with more listening involved.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

A surprise development or discovery in your love life could give you plenty to consider at this time. Maybe, a loved one or someone close has come up with their own set of rules that contradict things as you understand them to be. Certain plans involving a partner could be prone to change. If you need some time to get your head around any new arrangement, then ask for it.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

You could feel unsure whether words or actions will make clear your thoughts and feelings to someone close, but a sensible option must surely involve balancing both? Although the object of your affections probably won’t doubt you mean what you say, backing up any verbal declarations with action, even if it’s one heartfelt affectionate gesture, could ensure your message is clearly understood.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Yourhoughts could prefer to be veer frequently into romantic territory and giving due attention to other duties or responsibilities could be tricky at this time. This can create a frustrating need to balance working and playing, as you become acutely aware of what a lover and certain others expect from you. The answer surrounds clearing the decks of mundane responsibilities and setting aside time for playing later. Business might need to come before pleasure.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

Fluctuating moods could make any decision-making equally erratic so don’t be surprised if a loved one struggles to keep up with your thought processes. You know what you’re trying to make happen – or make sense of – and are right to keep impatience at bay. It could be easy to feel pressured into taking action or making a certain decision, and this isn’t helpful when you’re still at an ‘assessing stage’ with a love life matter that could benefit from more thought applied to it.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You might feel a stronger urge to indulge in fun or sexy pastimes with a loved one that push boundaries or take you into unfamiliar territory. Allow your spontaneous and adventurous side to come out and play. The object of your affections might struggle to connect with your desire to explore what’s unusual or taboo, but you’ll probably get your way in the end.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

Superficial chitchat, small talk or skirting around an issue you and someone special know needs to be addressed could result in a surprisingly deep and meaningful exchange. What both of you might have convinced yourselves would be an awkward topic could be something you’ll be glad to have brought into the open. It might be your willingness to bring the truth out from hiding, but you won’t be unsupported with doing so.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

Your passionate energy could be focused or applied in so many ways at this time. If a loved one or potential partner sees your efforts as confusing or erratic, then don’t let this cause you to dial back feelings or emotions. Your fervent energy is positive, even if it could be a bit overpowering, but it can be undeniably sexy with a tiny bit of patience and sensitivity involved!

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

Single Librans could feel a noticeable willingness to throw caution to the wind and apply innate networking skills to get out there, meeting and mingling in the belief that The One will be found. However, you might be overlooking one romantic opportunity that is much closer than you realize. Trust your instincts if they tell you to call off the search! Attached Librans could be strengthening something with a special love interest, and this momentum needs to keep going because it’s integral to one dream unfolding delightfully.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

The spirit of collaboration is strengthening in your emotional world and could encourage you and a loved one or potential partner to consider what long-term goals can be achieved by putting your heads together or combining talents. However, one of you might need to be careful about taking too strong a lead with what ought to be balanced. Both of you could have very fixed ideas about where things can go from here so try to keep the word ‘partnership’ in mind.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

Matters outside the sphere of your emotional world or one special connection could take up considerable focus and possibly cause you to overlook someone’s heartfelt efforts or attempt to gain your attention. Fortunately, your signature eye for detail can help to ensure you don’t let this go unnoticed for long. Something heartwarmingly inspiring is on offer if you’re willing to focus on the present and leave the future alone briefly.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You might not believe your actions or demeanor are in any way erratic or unusual, but a loved one or potential partner might think otherwise. What you see as consistent, someone else might see as inconsistent but don’t go changing just to please someone them. Your paramour might be clinging too tightly to routines or traditions and need to be reminded of magic that often comes from being more spontaneous.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

This is a time to go with the flow where developments in your emotional world or within a love partnership are concerned. You could be inclined to overthink or overanalyze what should be left alone to head in the direction it’s determined to head toward. Your relaxed attitude will help a loved one to feel less anxious or apprehensive, too. Be the peacemaker or bringer of calmness you can be now because it’s not only you who benefits.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You’re encouraged to view current circumstances in your emotional world or within a love relationship with a more open mind, and this is integral to seeing certain romantic or relationship matters in a more positive and realistic light. Being more flexible and open-minded puts you in a stronger position to see an unexpected development for what it is – and why it should be embraced, not resented or rejected.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

You could feel it’s necessary to slow down or possibly alter something between you and a certain person, especially if you sense an imbalance that concerns you. An arrangement or agreement could be shifting, but before you show more commitment, you want to know you’re dealing with something long-term. If something has become too comfortable or predictable, then now’s the time to make clear what you want to see change.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You could have a valid reason to feel optimistic about your romantic or relationship prospects at this time but could also discover you’ve overlooked an issue that has been begging for attention for a while. Don’t see what comes to light as a setback or a reason to react defensively. There’s much to appreciate and be positive about. Whatever it is, it’s temporary, and whatever change is instigated now benefits both of you.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

The thought of having what you know is an essential conversation with a loved one might not fill you with enthusiasm, but you probably know this topic can’t be swept under the carpet forever. Start slowly and reduce any surprises or sudden, impulsive behavior. Introducing a sensitive topic gently and gradually will ensure it is seen in the right perspective and progress gets made.

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You might find that you’ve underestimated your paramour’s ability to probe or persist at getting certain information from you. They might believe you’re secretive or that you’re concealing something. In truth, you probably feel you’re not obliged to disclose what they want to know. Reassure them that dishonesty plays no part in your need for privacy and feeling pushed to open up to them could only encourage you to dig your heels in further.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

Responsibilities or obligations in the real world could dampen your enthusiasm or possibly burst your bubble briefly where affairs of the heart are concerned. It’s also possible romantic or relationship pursuits will need to be put on a back burner as you focus your attention on creating security and stability in other ways. It’s all about getting priorities right at this time, and you’ll soon be able to shift your attention properly to matters of the heart once you’ve taken care of business – whatever that might be.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

A loved one’s sudden or unexpected action or gesture could be more alarming than delightful. What they do or propose in an out-of-the-blue way could be a cause for concern, especially if it becomes clear that they see something in your connection in a very different way to how you see it. However, this might be an ideal opportunity to remove rose-tinted glasses and see a romantic or relationship scenario in a new – and possibly more realistic – light.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

You’re helped to consider in every way possible the best interests of your love life or one special connection. This might involve an epiphany or realization regarding what ‘works’, what doesn’t and what holds you back from achieving your passionate potential. You’re brave and bold enough to accept what must change within you to improve your emotional world generally or a love relationship. The discoveries you make now are timely, so embrace them.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Wednesday 6th of February 2019

You might have some grand plans or lofty aspirations where romance or a love relationship are concerned. However, what you’re keen to make happen immediately might require more time and patience on your part. An unjustified cause for alarm could also arise if you spot something changing or shifting in a relationship but, with plenty of patience and calmness, you’ll see it’s unlikely to be anything to be concerned about.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 7th of February 2019

A romantic plan or aspiration could be a fantastic source of excitement. However, being aware of when the time has arrived to cease thinking about it and start taking action to make it happen is something you’ll need to accept. Fortunately, a spontaneous approach could be perfect to get your plan or vision underway. Even if a plan doesn’t go completely to plan, there are many sexy benefits to taking a risk in the name of love – and this could turn someone on wonderfully!

COSMIC CALENDAR

FEBRUARY 6, 2019

As long-term readers of this calendar know, every so often the Universe backs off from its usual bombardment of humanity with a wide variety of challenging sky configurations. The last two days have been rather calm in terms of celestial activities, and now there are only two main alignments influencing earthly matters. Both of these heavenly connections are definitely favorable and happen only 7 minutes apart as

Venus forms a love-empowering and inspirational, 72-degree link to Neptune (7:56 a.m.) followed by a mentally illuminating solar parallel with Mercury (8:03 a.m.). Enjoy playing a favorite musical instrument. Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks, or haiku. Experiment with making seafood or corn chowder for hungry dear ones. Dance the night away as the moon in the last sign of the zodiac can give you happy feet.

The Sky This Week from February 6 to 10

February evenings feature many of the sky’s brightest stars and clusters, while February mornings host brilliant Jupiter and Venus, the latter of which passes near several deep-sky wonders in the Milky Way.
By Richard Talcott

Wednesday, February 6
Although the Moon reached its New phase just two days ago, its rapid orbital motion carries it into view after the Sun goes down this evening. Look low in the west-southwest about an hour after sunset and you’ll see its 4-percent-lit crescent hanging in the twilight like the smile of the Cheshire Cat.

Thursday, February 7
Jupiter continues to grow more prominent in the southeastern sky before dawn. The giant planet rises nearly four hours before our star and climbs 20° high by the first hint of twilight. Jupiter gleams at magnitude –1.9, though it still pales in comparison to Venus, which rises an hour after the giant world. A telescope reveals Jupiter’s 34″-diameter disk and at least two conspicuous cloud belts.

Friday, February 8
For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, today marks the peak of the annual Alpha Centaurid meteor shower. And with the Moon out of the sky, viewing conditions should be near perfect from late evening until morning twilight begins. The shower’s radiant — the point from which the meteors appear to originate — lies among the background stars of Centaurus (although, oddly enough, closer to 1st-magnitude Beta [β] Centauri than to its brighter neighbor, Alpha [α] Centauri). The shower typically produces about 6 meteors per hour at its peak, although observers have reported between 20 and 30 per hour in a couple of years. The meteors tend to be bright and often leave persistent trains.

Saturday, February 9
The brightest star in the night sky puts on a nice show on February evenings. Gleaming at magnitude –1.5, Sirius shines nearly four times brighter than the next brightest star visible from mid-northern latitudes: Arcturus in the constellation Boötes. Sirius appears in the southeastern sky around 7 p.m. local time and climbs highest in the south around 9:30 p.m.

Sunday, February 10
Mars continues to shine brightly on February evenings. Look for the Red Planet halfway to the zenith in the southwestern sky as darkness falls. The world glows at magnitude 1.0 against the much dimmer stars of Pisces the Fish. Tonight, Mars sits 6° to the right of the waxing crescent Moon. A telescope reveals the planet’s 6″-diameter disk, but you likely won’t see any surface details.

Brilliant Venus continues its eastward march across the star-studded backdrop of Sagittarius. Both this morning and tomorrow morning, open star cluster M25 lies 2° north of the inner world and globular cluster M22 resides 3° south of the planet. All three objects fit nicely in the field of 7×50 binoculars.

On Wednedsay, February 6, We Celebrate…..

Mardi Gras (New Orleans)
AYIZAN

Themes: Pleasure; Playfulness; Divination

Symbol: Palm Leaf

About Ayizan: Ayizan is the first priestess of voodoo tradition, governing the public places where people gather to celebrate the goddess. As such, she oversees the Mardi Gras exuberant revelry, offering psychic insight and protective energy to keep us out of trouble.

According to tradition, Ayizan is the moral governess of humankind, helping us to balance our desire for pleasure with culpability.

To Do Today: Combine Ayizan’s psychic side with a traditional Mardi Gras activity: fortune-telling! And, since it’s unlikely that you have a palm leaf handy, use your own palm for divination instead. Get a palmistry guidebook (these are often handy at the supermarket checkout) and see what future your hand predicts.

Mardi Gras is traditionally a time of unbridled fun before the serious lenten season begins—so much so that the festivities are overseen by a lady and lord of misrule, who make sure folks really let loose. One activity in particular inspires Ayizan’s energies—that of dancing and tossing grain so that pleasure rains down on all participants. This also banishes evil. Try this yourself, tossing rice or any grain-based cereal around the outside of your home. Then the birds can carry your wishes directly to Ayizan in their beaks!

The Witches Guide to Wednesdays

Be bold and daring today! Expand your knowledge of the Craft by working with the planetary energies of Mercury on this multifaceted day of the week. Consider the Greco-Roman gods Mercury and Hermes and all of the many lessons they have for you. Embrace change and movement, and work on your communication techniques. Conjure up a little good luck for yourself with that Mercury dime spell. Call on Athena to inspire you to try magickal arts and crafts and to be more creative in your own spellwork and witchery.

Meditate on Odin and see what you can discover about him. I wonder what sort of fabulous and fascinating magickal wisdom you will uncover? Odin is a shaman, after all; he may appear in many guises and faces. I guarantee that he will make you laugh at yourself before he is through with you, but you will learn. It’s up to you what you do with that knowledge. Will you let it shapeshift into wisdom?

Wednesday is the wild and wily day of the week, so try to go with the flow; don’t fight the quirky energies of the day. Most importantly, follow your heart, and always keep a good sense of humor, because of Wednesdays you will really need it.

Wednesday Is Ruled By Mercury

Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:

Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange

Carrying a multipurpose agate with you and tapping into its various charms

Working with magical plants such as the fern for protection. This plant will also boost the power of any other magical plants with which it is arranged.

Incorporating lavender into charms and spells for transformation

Using the charming scent of lily of the valley to improve your memory, or working with the aspen tree for communication

Calling on Athena, patron of arts and crafts, for inspiration for a new project

Fanning out a Tarot spell to increase you creativity

Calling on Hermes on a Wednesday night to bring movement and good luck into your life

*****************

Magickal Applications for Wednesday

To the Romans, this day was called Dies Mercurii, or “Mercury’s day” Mercury was a popular character in the Roman pantheon. A messenger of the gods, he presided over commerce, trade, and anything that required skill or dexterity. The Celts also worshiped Mercury and eventually equated him with the Norse god Odin (some spelling variations on this name include Wotan, Wodin, and Wodan). In Norse mythologies, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetry and music. Interestingly enough, both Odin and Mercury were regarded as psychopomps, or the leaders of souls, in their individual mythologies.

Odin, one of the main gods in Norse mythology, was constantly seeking wisdom. He traveled the world in disguise as a one-eyed man with a long gray beard, wearing an old, beat-up hat and carrying a staff or a spear (which brings to my mind images of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings). In the Old English language, this day of Mercury evolved into Wodnes daeg, “Woden’s day,” or Wednesday.

Wednesday carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits included good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickiness, and thievery. And don’t forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athena’s contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.

The Witches Magick for Wednesday, February 6 – Revenge Curse Jar

Intent: To bring bad luck into the life of one who has wronged you.
Timing: Waning moon
Supplies:

Clay poppet
Toothpicks, pins, or nails
Yarn or thread
Lemon juice
Glass jar
1 fresh egg
Black candle stub
Shovel

Go to a patch of earth at a crossroads that is not likely to be disturbed. Carve the target’s name into the poppet and say aloud:

Poppet, I name you [Name]. Your limbs are their limbs, your flesh is their flesh. As you suffer, so shall they suffer.

Stick toothpicks/pins/nails into the poppet. Accompany each one with a particular malady you would like the target to suffer. Bind the poppet’s limbs, eyes, and mouth to prevent escape and drop it into the jar. Add more pins or nails if desired.

Add lemon juice while saying,

As the juice destroys the flesh, so let your fortunes sour
Let the sweet be gone from your life forth from this very hour

Add the egg, while saying,

As the egg disintegrates, your luck begins to rot
Relief you will seek from my curse, but find it you will not

 

Light the black candle and drip the wax into the jar, while saying,

This candle flame doth represent my hurt, my rage, my ire
May all your fortune vanish, as kindling in a fire
(If desired, light a piece of paper with a list of wrongs. Add the ashes to the jar.)
May hardship come to find you with the waning of the moon
[Name], my curse upon you from now till crack of doom

Alternatively (if you just want to teach someone a lesson):

For all that you have angered me, my rage may yet relent
[Name], my curse upon you until you do repent

Drop the candle stub into the jar and shake well. Bury the jar and walk away without looking back. Once at home, bathe thoroughly with the intention of washing away any residual energy still clinging to you. Wash your clothes and tools as well.

Curseturner Powder

Intent: To remove the effects of harmful magic and turn it back upon the person who cast it.

Ingredients:

Basil
Hyssop
Bloodroot
Witch Hazel
Angelica Root
Cascara Segrada
White Willow Bark
Rosemary

Materials:
Mortar & Pestle (or spice grinder)
Funnel
Mesh Strainer
Collection Dish
Container

Note: Powdered versions of most herbs are available online. See Online Resources for recommended vendors. Also, if you can get your hands on a good spice grinder, you can make your own powder from dried herb products.

Grind each ingredient separately to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger unground pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the mesh strainer reduces lost material and makes collection much easier.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately. For volume, go heavier on the less expensive or more easily available materials according to your own stores and finances. Otherwise, combine in more or less even amounts.

Use in any spellwork for removing and returning a curse. The powder will work on any person, object, or location you wish, whether the person who cast the curse initially is known or unknown.

Magical Mud-Slinging: How to Protect Yourself from Backlash

A question that I get asked very often (by which I mean about once a week) is some variation of “How do I protect myself from the backlash of casting baneful magic / perform cursing without consequences?”
Well, the truth is that there is no way of performing baneful magic without incurring consequences. As I’ve so often said, “You can’t sling mud without getting your hands dirty.” But just like with mud, there are things you can do to mitigate the mess.

Step 1: “Wear Gloves.”
Protect yourself with a personal ward before you begin. Try to limit the number of tools you use to put the curse together. Cast a protective circle, if you feel the need. Prepare materials to refresh your household wards, if you have them, because they’ll need boosting after you’re done.

Step 2: “Wash Your Hands.”
Once you’ve finished whatever it is you set out to do, cleanse EVERYTHING. Yourself, your tools, your home…everything, top to bottom. Take a shower with a bit of Simple Jinx Remover to keep the magical “sludge” from sticking to you. Refresh your household wards. If you don’t have them, a simple sprinkling of salt across doorways and windowsills will do the trick.

Step 3: “Pay the Price.”
It’s important to know that there is a cost to everything. “All Magic Has A Price.” With baneful spells, the effect is more severe because of the intent of the magic involved. It can range from just having a couple of bad days to a full-on backlash where the curse you threw boomerangs around and bites you square in the ass. Whatever you do, no matter how well you prepare, there will be a cost to cursing. You need to realize and accept this, and if it’s not something you’re prepared to deal with, I’d suggest finding another way to get things done.

Spirit Message of the Day – Keys To Authenticity

Living the Authentic Life

The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself. –Lao-Tse

“You are meant to live an intimate and authentic life, a life that honors the depth of who you are, a life that nourishes your heart and expands your mind, a life that is unencumbered with what others think, a life that empowers you to be who you really are.

And yet, with the pressure we feel from others and life in general, the question may remain, “How can I live such a life?” “What steps can I take toward being just ‘me?’” In my own life, I have found the following practices to be invaluable and successful components in experiencing an authentic life:

Taking Care of Yourself

Nurturing your body, mind and spirit must be a priority in your life. Accept that you can only give to others to the extent you are giving to yourself. Putting yourself first is not “selfish,” but “Self-full.”

Dare to Be Yourself

Strip away the mask and let yourself just “be.” Take time to have fun and allow yourself to find humor in being human. Know that your purpose for being born wasn’t to live life according to what society deems correct. Your purpose is to discover your true self and live from that awareness. If you resonate to the color violet, then be violet, not brown. I once read a quote from Rabindranath Tagore who wisely asked, “That which oppresses me, is it my soul trying to come out in the open, or the soul of the world knocking at my heart for its entrance?”

Give Only From the Heart
Doing anything out of obligation dishonors both you and the other person, and will only leave you feeling resentful. Do an “inner check” before you say “yes” to anyone. If resistance surfaces, do another inner check. If heaviness or resistance occurs again, trust what you feel and do not commit to something that is not in alignment with your heart.

Look Inward for Your Fulfillment, Not Outward

Within you resides a wellspring of creativity and love. Turn within to become aware of what is driving your needs. Is it because you are feeling unloved, scared or lonely? Practice giving what you want to receive. Extending love, from the heart, is the fastest way to fill any emptiness you may feel.

Appreciate Yourself

Take time to appreciate how far you have come on your journey. Notice what you have worked through and your commitment to growth and healing. Doing so builds both an inner and outer abundance over time. It will help you to see the glass, or your life, half full rather than half empty.

Let Go of Guilt

No one is harder on us than we are on ourselves. And many of us feel guilty for taking care of ourselves, setting healthy boundaries and saying, “No.” Having been programmed to feel responsible for others, we often find it hard to recognize our own needs. Practice dropping any guilt you feel for honoring yourself. Guilt is limiting and crippling and does not serve you. Living an authentic life means being free from what others think. It requires giving yourself permission to live life according to what your heart and soul desires.

Become Aware of Your Intentions

If your intention is to be real and congruent, then everything that is not authentically you will reveal itself so you can choose to release it. Spirit will illuminate anything in need of releasing when you set your intention to grow. Yet if your intention is split: pleasing others, wanting one of the Three P’s: Power/Prestige/Prosperity, etc., then you will experience the effects of your split-mind thinking and your life will never, ever, be completely fulfilling. Practice purifying your intention.

Ask, Listen and Follow
Be willing, right now, to ask for guidance in developing an authentic relationship with yourself. Ask for guidance in releasing beliefs, thoughts and behaviors that do not honor your true essence. Start with, “Who am I, really? For so long I’ve based my perception of myself on what others think that I’ve forgotten who I am. So, who am I, truly?” and, “What steps can I take to live an authentic life?” Finally, be willing to hear the gentle yet firm Voice, and trust what it says.

Such is the Life of the Authentic Soul

We need only ask and we will find that our relationships, finances, work, and relationship with our self begin to transform. How many times per day do you ask for help from Spirit? And, how often do you listen to it? And then, what about following what you hear? The amount of inner peace and happiness you experience in your life is directly proportionate to the amount of energy you expend on asking, listening and following the Voice within.”
