We hate to leave good company but…….

We were notified by the water company last week that they would be flushing out the system in our area today. Basically it means they go around and open up all the fire plugs and let the water fly. When they do that, somehow the houses in that area’s water flow just stops. In other words, within 15 minutes we will be without water for a few hours while they flush the system. And when they flush the system, we can’t flush the toilets. We have a few ladies that have an upset stomach and they have been in the bathroom quite a bit this morning. So I don’t believe we really want to stay here if we have no water.

So with that in mind, we are going to run and hopefully tomorrow will be a normal dayl I would also like to remind you to remember the Elder ladies that desperate need our help to keep their power on. We only like a little bit and we will be able to pay their utility bill. Remember these ladies are 82 and 84 years old, they can’t afford to go without heat. They shouldn’t have to go without heat. No matter what you can give, it will be deeply apppreciate. Every nickel, dime, penny adds up. So if you can give anything to help these ladies out, they would appreciate and I would appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Till tomorrow…..

Love ya,

Lady of the Abyss

Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, Feb. 19

 

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions from 8:30 AM to 10 AM EST today (5:30 AM to 7 AM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo. The Super Full Moon in Virgo peaks at 10:54 AM EST (7:54 AM PST).

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s Full Moon could introduce tension with coworkers, which means you will have to be patient and understanding. Meanwhile, this is an excellent day to do research of any kind because your mind is focused and detail oriented.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be patient with children today because they feel this Full Moon. Likewise, romantic partners might be more challenging. Nevertheless, it’s an excellent day to discuss future travel plans or anything related to medicine, law and higher education or taking some courses.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today’s Full Moon creates challenges between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career and your public reputation. At this time, you cannot ignore your career, which means you have to be skilful dealing with family. Good luck!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because the Full Moon will trigger an accident-prone energy for you. (Gulp.) This means you have to be more alert than usual. Remember this! It’s a good day to study and wade through legal matters.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will be more concerned with wills, inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property in the next four weeks. In fact, today is an excellent day for important discussions about these matters because your mind is clear, focused and capable of handling details.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today’s Full Moon might create tension between you and close friends and partners; although this doesn’t have to be the case. Nevertheless, be accommodating and patient with others. It’s a strong day to discuss the division of labour and shared expenses.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Although today’s Full Moon might create increased stress with coworkers; nevertheless, you are ready to get some work done! Your concentration is excellent and you will have no trouble focusing on details or staying on to of whatever you’re doing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today’s Full Moon might trigger difficulties with your kids (and even a lover). However, this is a good day to make long-range vacation plans, or to teach or help your kids to learn something. Remember to be patient with others while Mars is opposite your sign this month and next. (Sigh.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today’s Full Moon makes you feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career. At this time, you cannot ignore the demands of home and family, especially family discussions and repairs at home. This stuff has to be done!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do be careful because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. However, this influence is simply the Full Moon, which means heightened emotions will cause you to be distracted. (This will apply to others as well so you will have to drive defensively.) Be smart.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something connected with your earnings and finances might come to a head at this time because of the Full Moon. Fortunately, Mercury is in your Money House dancing with Saturn, which gives you lots of common sense, patience and ability to skilfully negotiate. No worries.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the only New Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place, which can introduce tension with partners and close friends. Fortunately, this is nothing you can’t handle, especially if you are pleasing and patient with others. This is also a good day to make future plans.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Millie Bobby Brown (2004) shares your birthday today. You are an optimistic, sensitive dreamer who will put the needs of loved ones before your own. Take care of yourself this year to be a strong resource. Nurture relationships you value. Focus on your personal responsibilities to family as well as yourself because service to others is important this year. Explore the arts, enroll in a class. Personalize your home with treasures that have meaning.

FEBRUARY’S SUPERMOON PUSHES YOU TO BE YOUR BEST SELF

FEBRUARY’S SUPERMOON PUSHES YOU TO BE YOUR BEST SELF

At 7:53 a.m. PST on February 19, 2019, the full moon will be in Virgo.

Full moons often help us to see the big picture. But under the light of the Virgo supermoon—which occurs when the orb is at its closest point to Earth, the urge to gaze is slated to be even stronger—we may have trouble seeing the forest for the trees.

That’s because, as this lunation puts everything under the microscope, we’re called to notice details that typically go overlooked. And while some of them are flattering, focusing on the flaws is human nature.

No matter how satisfied we are in our lives, for most of us, there’s still a discrepancy between how things should be and how they actually are—and that gap may seem especially wide during this full moon. Just remember, we’re all still works-in-progress, so before you criticize, make sure it’s constructive!

 

WHAT DOES THE FULL MOON IN VIRGO MEAN?

 

Virgo’s intentions are pure—all it really wants is to help us be our best selves. But under this sign’s influence, the standards we set for ourselves (and others) can be ridiculously high.

Fortunately, with the sun in Pisces opposite this full moon, it’s easier to forgive each other’s shortcomings. We all miss the mark sometimes, but most of us are trying our best—so we may want to give each other the benefit of the doubt.

That doesn’t mean we have to tolerate bad behavior, though. Virgo is all about personal integrity—so if our actions are out of alignment, this full moon will reveal the error of our ways and put us back on track.

 

True, it’s not always easy to tell right from wrong. But discerning Virgo helps us cut through all the confusion and find the clarity we need to make wise decisions.

Just be careful not to overthink things—with so much information to process at this full moon, it’s easy to succumb to analysis paralysis. Decide what’s really important…then take a deep breath and let the other stuff go.

 

HOROSCOPES FOR THE FEBRUARY 2019 FULL MOON IN VIRGO

 

VIRGO

As far as you’re concerned, Virgo, there’s always room for improvement. But while your self-care game is strong—diet, exercise, meditation, an occasional trip to the spa—that’s not exactly the same thing as self-love. In fact, sometimes it’s just one more thing to stress about! This full moon reminds you that you’re beautiful, just the way you are.

LIBRA

Like no one’s watching, Libra—that’s the only way to live at this full moon. After all, you’ve been doing your best to live up to other people’s standards, but the ones that really matter are your own. So how well are you measuring up? Be as honest as you can—you’ll serve others better by being authentic than by trying to be perfect.

SCORPIO

Why leave anything to chance, Scorpio? We know you like to be prepared…but still, there’s something to be said for not planning everything down to the last detail. At this full moon, you’ll have a lot more fun if you leave some room for serendipity. Intriguing opportunities may present themselves—if they do, just say yes!

SAGITTARIUS

You’re an unlikely homebody, Sag, but right now, all you want is to stay in and chill! With career pressures piling up at this full moon, domestic life can seem like a sweet escape. Still, if you’re constantly fantasizing about leaving it all behind, you may want to think about building a career you won’t feel the need to escape from.

CAPRICORN

We’d like to give you the benefit of the doubt, Capricorn. But as objective as you try to be, we’re all guilty of applying double standards at times—or having unconscious biases that cloud our vision. This full moon reveals a few of your own. Fortunately, though, it also supports you in holding yourself to a higher standard.

AQUARIUS

You promised yourself you’d never sell out, Aquarius—and we’ve got to say, your integrity is pretty damn impressive! Still, every now and then, it’s worth reevaluating how realistic your principles actually are when applied to everyday life. This full moon gives you a better idea of the real-world financial situations and power dynamics you may be dealing with.

PISCES

We’ve all got our blind spots, Pisces, especially when it comes to seeing ourselves. Fortunately, the people closest to us have a way of bringing these things into focus. We’re not just talking about the flaws, either—at this full moon, loved ones can also help you to see the beauty in yourself that’s all too easily overlooked.

ARIES

Check yourself before you wreck yourself, Aries! You may think you can get away with anything, but if you cross the line, this full moon won’t hesitate to give you an attitude adjustment. The more you cooperate, the better off you’ll be—so stay humble, take responsibility for yourself, and make sure you’ve really got the best intentions at heart.

TAURUS

Simple pleasures are what you live for, Taurus. But when you see people out there on social media living their best lives, sometimes you worry you’re missing out—even if you know it’s not your cup of tea. At this full moon, there’s no need to overthink things. Stop comparing yourself to others, and just enjoy what you love.

GEMINI

Fake it till you make it, Gemini—sometimes, this is useful advice. But when it comes to integrity, there’s no substitute for the real deal. At this full moon, you’re painfully aware of the gap between the person you are and the person you’d like to be, but you’re in also in a uniquely powerful position to do something about it.

CANCER

Someone’s go-to work out the details, Cancer—and more often than not, that person is you—so your preoccupation with practical matters is totally understandable. But even when you don’t have it all figured out, the universe has its own ways of making it work! This full moon helps you focus on what’s most important and stop sweating the small stuff.

LEO

Only the best for you, Leo! At this full moon, it’s important to know your own worth.  But if you’re looking for it in money, possessions, or other status symbols, you’re looking in the wrong place. It’s the purity of your heart and your devotion to doing what’s right that make you true royalty—and nothing can take that away.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, February 18th

COSMIC CALENDAR

Think like a winner during a significant day when several celestial link-ups require your attention. Chiron re-enters Aries (1:11 a.m.) until 2027 while Pallas stops at 30 degrees of Libra (8:41 a.m.) to go retrograde until May 30. Chiron and Pallas archetypes deserve your study and reflection. Chiron has a strong association with wounds and pains (physical or psychological), holistic healing and alternative medicine, twilight zones, keys opening doors to higher consciousness, shaman-mentor roles, mavericks and catalysts, and building rainbow bridges between the material and spiritual dimensions of life. Regarding Pallas, think more about these qualities: problem-solving, strategy sessions, brainstorms and ingenious inventions, engineering, scholarly research, games of skill and mental prowess, the immune system, DNA and the genetic code.

Beyond the dynamism of Chiron and Pallas themes, do your best to safely handle Venus uniting with Saturn at 17 degrees of Capricorn (2:53 a.m.), the sun entering Pisces (3:05 p.m.), and Mercury uniting with Neptune at 16 degrees of Pisces (10:38 p.m.). A healthy balance between dealing with practical matters and tuning into spiritual guidance is the right way to proceed.

Flowing trines from the sun to Pallas (2:53 a.m.) in air signs and the moon to Jupiter (4:01 p.m.) in fire signs are inspiration-packed aces to keep up your sleeve in order to neutralize an increase in stress.

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

February 19th’s Full Moon is Also A Super Moon

What Is a Supermoon and When Is the Next One?

When the Full Moon occurs during the Moon’s closest approach to Earth, its perigee, it appears larger and brighter in the sky. This phenomenon is often called a supermoon.

Supermoon on Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Super Full Moon and Super New Moon

When a Full Moon takes place when the Moon is near its closest approach to Earth, it is called a Super Full Moon. When there is a New Moon around the closest point to Earth, it is known as a Super New Moon.

A Micromoon, on the other hand, is when a Full or a New Moon is near its farthest point from Earth, around apogee. It’s also known as a Minimoon, Mini Full Moon, or a Mini New Moon.

Perigee and Apogee

A New Moon at perigee is also often referred to as a supermoon. However, this event usually garners less attention because a New Moon is invisible from Earth.

The Moon’s orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle, but elliptical, with one side closer to Earth than the other. As a result, the distance between the Moon and Earth varies throughout the month and the year. On average, the distance is about 382,900 kilometers (238,000 miles).

The point on the Moon’s orbit closest to Earth is called the perigee and the point farthest away is the apogee.

Not an Official Name

Supermoon is not an official astronomical term. It was first coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, in 1979. He defined it as ‘a New or a Full Moon that occurs when the Moon is at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in its orbit’. It is not clear why he chose the 90% cut off in his definition.

Supermoon Definition

There are no official rules as to how close or far the Moon must be to qualify as a Supermoon or a Micro Moon. Different outlets use different definitions. Due to this, a Full Moon classified as a Supermoon by one source may not qualify as a Super Full Moon by another.

The following definitions are used at timeanddate.com:

  • Supermoon: A Full or New Moon that occurs when the center of the Moon is less than 360,000 kilometers (ca. 223,694 miles) from the center of Earth.
  • Micromoon: A Full Moon or New Moon that takes place when the center of the Moon is farther than 405,000 kilometers (ca. 251,655 miles) from the center of Earth.

A Super Full Moon’s angular size is 12.5%–14.1% bigger than a Micro Full Moon, and 5.9%–6.9% bigger than an average Full Moon (in years 1550–2650).

Technical Name: Perigee-syzygy

The technical term for a Supermoon is perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. In astronomy, the term syzygy refers to the straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies. Another name is perigee Full Moon.

When the Moon is close to the lunar nodes of its path during a syzygy, it causes a total solar eclipse or a total lunar eclipse

Looks Bigger and Brighter

Because it’s so close to Earth, a Super Full Moon also looks about 30% brighter than a Micro Full Moon and about 16% brighter than an average Full Moon.

The Supermoon on November 14, 2016, was the closest since January 26, 1948. The next time a Full Moon will come even closer to Earth is on November 25, 2034 (dates based on UTCtime).

Moon Illusion: Best at Moonrise and Moonset

The best time to enjoy a Super Full Moon, or any other Full Moon, is just after moonrise, when the Moon is close to the horizon. Just before moonset is also a good time.

When the Full Moon is low, it looks bigger and brighter than when it’s higher up in the sky. This is called the Moon illusion, and actually makes more of a difference to what it looks like than the real boost you get from it being a bit closer to Earth.

Higher Tides at Supermoon

The greatest difference between high and low tide is around Full Moon and New Moon. During these Moon phases, the gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun combine to pull the ocean’s water in the same direction. These tides are known as spring tides or king tides.

Supermoons lead to around 5 cm (2 inches) larger variation than regular spring tides, called perigean spring tides.

The tidal range is smallest during the two Quarter Moons, known as neaps or neap tide.

Natural Disaster Trigger?

Although the Sun and the Moon’s alignment cause a small increase in tectonic activity, the effects of the Supermoon on Earth are minor. Many scientists have conducted studies, and they haven’t found anything significant that can link the Super Moon to natural disasters.

According to NASA, the combination of the Moon being at its closest and at Full Moon, should not affect the internal energy balance of the Earth since there are lunar tides every day.
