Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Take note parents: This is an accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, this is also an accident-prone day for sports events for everyone. Social get-togethers might happen spontaneously or instead, they might be cancelled because today is a crapshoot. Anything can happen!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something will upset or change your home routine or something within your family dynamic today. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Be patient with family members to avoid arguments and angry encounters. Stay chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Pat attention to whatever you say and do because today is an accident-prone time for sign. Be careful about being rambunctious or too spontaneous because you might say or do something you later regret. On the upside, you might have brilliant, genius -like ideas today? Who knows?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Keep an eye on your money and your assets and belongings today because something unexpected might impact them. You may find money; you might lose money. Be careful and guard your possessions against loss, theft or damage. Be open to clever, moneymaking ideas!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today is a fast-paced and electrical! You are exploding with ideas because an energy is building up within you that makes you impulsive and keen to try anything! Take a moment to think what you really do want to get done. You can’t cross a river in two boats. Focus your mind.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a restless day for you, which is why you have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Plonk! Don’t get hung up on disputes about shared property, taxes, debt or inheritances. Instead focus on good feelings with friends and members of groups. Be friendly! Enjoy your day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Someone younger than you might say or do something that surprises you or catches you off guard today. Or perhaps you will meet someone new who is younger? An exchange with this person might inspire you to modify your future goals.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs are totally unpredictable today. They might say or do something you least expect. Since the vibes are so dicey, be courteous. Do not add fuel to the fire. If you feel rebellious, don’t do anything you will later regret. Be cool.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel plans might suddenly change today. Expect cancellations, delays or changes. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to do so. Likewise, surprising news on the media or unexpected events might occur. Be alert. (The world needs more lerts.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Keep an eye on your bank account and issues related to inheritances and shared property because something surprising or unexpected might impact these areas. If it’s important, you don’t want to be caught napping or asleep at the switch. Stay on the ball.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A partner or close friend might throw you a zinger today by doing or saying something you least expect. On the upside, they might introduce you to someone new and unusual. (You like characters.) Someone might have a clever new idea?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your work routine will be interrupted today by computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages, unexpected messages or a surprise suggestion from someone. Since you are working hard now to boost your earnings, cope with this as professionally as possible. Your aim is to get everything running smoothly again.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Author Suzanne Collins (1962) shares your birthday today. You are a leader because you know how to direct and make things come together. It’s encouraging to see that your hard work will start to pay off this year! Channel your energy and focus on building solid foundations now and for the future. Work with purpose. Physical exercise will be important, which is why you might want to explore something physical that you enjoy doing.

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 is named after the moon. The Latin term for Monday is Dies Lunae (“moon’s day”); in the Old English language, this day was Monandaeg; in Greek, it was Hermera Selenes. All of these different names and languages translate to the same thing: the “day of the moon.”

Magickally, Monday encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion, prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women’s mysteries, and fertility.

Monday & 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.

Time Spells – Hand 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.

Speaking of special occasions, you are normally on the top of the list of people invited. Usually, you are open to doing things on the spur of the moment. It is your cheerful and positive attitude that attracts people to you.

The August 10 horoscope profile shows you are very independent. As negative qualities go, this Leo birthday person can be selfish, suspicious and intolerant; perhaps even conceited.

Whatever you call a Leo born on this day, you would have to admire their dedication to their passion. Please do not disrespect or ignore this zodiac sign as they will not forget who they feel has done them wrong.

According to your friends and family, this August 10th birthday person should be in the movies or something related to being in the media. People like you are far and few between so you are requested by some important contacts.

You try to accommodate everyone, as you do not like to miss an opportunity to grow mentally or financially but to be overbooked, you are likely to miss a few appointments. If today is your birthday, you could do well to stick to a flexible schedule and perhaps include the support of your friends or family as a means to stay on track of things.

This can relieve you of some anxiety so you can concentrate on the bigger picture. You do not like to waste your time at work and would like to be a benefit to people.

With this in mind, you can be more tolerant with a job that is perhaps lacking in stimulation or pay. However, you can rest assured that this zodiac birthday individual will do a good job. When things are not going right, you have comfort in knowing that you are not limited to one occupation.

The only problem you may have with money is saving it. Retirement is always closer than you think. It is suggested that you invest in a retirement savings plan instead of spending good money frivolously. Enjoy yourself but do so on a budget. Do not go overboard with your spending.

Hearth health is normally a concern of those born on this day August 10. Your heart is affected by many areas of your life. It could be a low sense of self-worth that has you mentally clouded.

It is common to have a family member who is a bully. Perhaps the hands of a dysfunctional loved one as a child shattered you and this has spilled over into your adult life. Stress can show up in your neck, back and skin as well.

A Sunday Flashback from Lady of the Abyss

Today our beloved Lady Abyss was in my thoughts when I woke up and so I thought it might be nice to repost something from her. This is from Sunday, February 17, 2019. When you read this post keep in mind I am not asking for money for WOTC or anyone else but this posts reminds us of what a caring and loving person our Lady was.

“Good Sunday Morning To All Our Brothers & Sisters of The Craft! May The Goddess Fill Your Life With Blessings Today & Always!

Well had you thought we had run off and left the country? No, you ain’t that lucky, lol! It has been a wild couple of days, I can say that. There were suppose to be posted on here daily so you would know the site was still alive but…..oh, well, here I go back to the old saying, “when the cat’s away, the mice will play.” Since I saw there hadn’t been any posts on the site in the last few days, I decided to take a break from building our new store and come and aggravate y’all for a bit, lucky, lucky, lucky! Your luck has never been so good has it.

As I stated the last few days have been rather wild and that is putting it mildly. I am sure I have mentioned it before but for those of you who are new here, I will mention it again. The WOTC is not only active on-line it is active off-line as well. We help out local food banks, help the Elderly with some of their expenses throughout the money(since they are on limited incomes) and we still take in a stray or wild animals on occasions. I am an animal lover, can’t help myself when we get one of those calls. A call that an animal is in distress or going to be shot if something isn’t don’t with it, I am Johnny-on-the-spot. But that is just a few of the things we do off-line.

I have my reasons for bringing up some of the things we do off-line because of a phone call I received Thursday. It was a phone call from two local elderly sisters who are witches themselves. We have helped them out off and on when they needed it. They called Friday because they needed our help. Even though our funds are gone and I mean, gone, gone. I couldn’t refuse them and I told them I would see what I could do for them. Neither one of the sisters have ever married, they only have each other, no family left. They feel like I am their family because when my mother was alive I remember us stopping by to visit them on our way to town. They were quite a bit younger than my mother but they were witches so she made a point of visiting them when she could. The live on the other side of county from where we are now. I can still remember going to their house. On both sides of the gravel road leading to their house was nothing put trees. Thick trees, in fact, it looked like a forest with a path cut through it. Then the house was a house built out of wood. Honestly it looked like the house from Hansel and Gretel, seriously. The only difference the house from the fairy tale was in much better shape. I took them some groceries recently and it still looks the same except it had a few boards that had come loose. I had Lord M with me and he fixed the boards for the sisters. You get the idea, these sisters do not have much money coming in at all and are basically just surviving day to day,

Now back to the phone call, one of the sister (Mildred) called and asked if we could talk for a minute. I told her sure anytime, she knew that. She was upset and I could tell that. I was afraid something had happened to her sister but thankfully that wasn’t the case. She was upset because she had received a $538.00 electricity bill, I told her I didn’t doubt it because our bill had been outrageous this month. She told me that they didn’t have the money to pay it. I asked her if she had talked to the light company and she said no. I told her to give me a minute and I would call them and see what I could do. I called the electric company, which by the way is a Co-Op. A Co-Op is suppose to be owned by its members and the members are suppose to have some rights and say so in how it is run. I talked to one of the ladies there and she was just down right rude. She told me that the sisters would have to pay the full amount of the bill or have their power cut off. It is in the low 20’s and they are going to cut off two elderly ladies’ power. Really? I asked to talk to a supervisor. The supervisor was a little nicer. She asked me how much could they pay that day and then call back and make payment arrangements before the next disconnect notice came due. Well I told her I could pay $50.00 on it. That was all I had and I gladly did it. The supervisor made a note on their account that payment arrangements would follow. I called the sisters back and told them what I had done. They were delighted. I told them to be sure to call back before the disconnect notice was due to make payment arrangements or else they would be out to cut them off. Well they called back to make the arrangements and I got another phone call. Mildred was upset to no end. She told me the lady told her that she had to pay $180.00 that day and then the remaining balance would be stretched out to the 28th of this month. Of course, the poor sisters did not have the money nor did I.

After I talked to Mildred, I called the power company. By this time, I was mad as an old wet hen. I had already pulled up the law in regards to utilities company disconnecting people in the Winter months. The law states that no one can be disconnected between the Winter months of November through February of each year. It also went on to state that if a person in the household was disabled, elderly or needed the electricity for live saving equipment then the power could not be cut off either. I informed the supervisor of this and she said since they were a Co-Op they could do as they pleased. The law didn’t apply to them. Which, of course, we had a hardy disagreement over that. I asked them when the next Co-Op meeting was and I would be there with bells on. I also wrote the County representative over this matter but I have not heard back from him yet. It didn’t matter what I had to say to this woman, she told me they either pay the bill or else they would be disconnected.

Now can you imagine that? Two elderly sisters, one 82 and the 84, fragile and thin, living in a 100 year old house(which has cracks everywhere you look) getting their power shut off? I could not believe the cruelty or inhumane treatment coming from this supervisor or the electric company. What it all boils down too, is that if these ladies do not come up with the money to pay their power bill, they will be disconnected probably either Monday or Tuesday. We are flat broke or else I wouldn’t have been beating my brains out trying to rebuild the store. I need your help, these sisters need your help. It would absolutely kill me to think that they got their power cut off. They wouldn’t leave their home to save them. They would stay there and try to survive. Survive they wouldn’t, they would freeze to death. I can’t let that happen. I am asking that you help me by assisting them in trying to pay their power bill, Later on, when we get back on our feet, we plan on insulating the house for them but right now we have to worry about the power being cut off. I am not asking for myself but I am asking for these dear, sweet old ladies. If you could meet them you would fall in love with them. Just listening to their stories, then learning witchcraft from them and just basically stories about the old days. They are wonderful, beautiful human beings and for the power company to do this is just wrong. I plan on going to the Co-Op meeting and I also plan on pursuing this at every level of government in this town. This treatment of the elderly is oh, so wrong and I plan on making a huge stink about it. But right now, we have no choice but to try to pay the bill.

I said I would never beg you for money. I am not begging for myself, I am begging for these two wonderful ladies. Will you please help me raise the money to keep their power from being shut-off. It is the middle of Winter, they need their heat to survive. They still have many years ahead of them and to think of them freezing to death is killing me. I am asking for your help in assisting them to keep their power on. I know it is a hard time for everyone but we can’t let our Elderly be treated like this. Hell, they will take a dog in off the streets but they won’t keep our elderly warm by just leaving their heat on. It is pathetic. These sisters desperately need your help. If they knew I was telling their story, they would be mad as heck at me. They are proud women and they don’t like asking for a hand out. I told them it wouldn’t be a hand out but a hand up. They had did so much for the Pagan community around here, I feel that it is only right that we try to help them. No matter what you can give, it all adds up and hopefully we will be able to keep their power on during these cold days ahead.

Thank you so very much,

Lady of the Abyss”

 

Daily Horoscope Sunday, August 9, 2020

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3:30 PM to 9:30 PM EDT today (12:30 PM to 6:30 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Aries into Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is more tense. Oh yeah. People are more grouchy and critical, which means your relations with authority figures (bosses, parents and the police) are stiff and more strained. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Yesterday was a feel-good day. Today not so much. Things are not as lighthearted as they were yesterday. Be smart and avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues when talking to others because that will just be a bummer.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might feel at odds with someone today, especially if you are sharing something or discussing an inheritance or making a decision about how to spend an allocated amount of money. Someone in power will block you. (Like, what’s with that?)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with parents, bosses, partners and spouses as well as close friends are dicey today. Someone’s throwing shade on you. Or maybe they think you have an attitude? Whatever — you get the picture. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Expect difficulty working with coworkers or trying to do whatever you’re trying to do because something will oppose you today. Things will not flow as easily as you would like. Therefore, give yourself extra room to encounter the unexpected. Be prepared. (This is not your first rodeo.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might encounter difficulty with your kids today or with a romantic partner. You might think people are stingy or you might feel stingy yourself? That’s okay. Always forgive yourself and love yourself. We all have shortcomings – it goes with the territory.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do what you can to keep things smooth with partners, close friends and family members because today it’s easy for things to go off the rails. (In a New York minute.) Someone might be critical or they could be on your case. Nobody likes is. (I’m with you on that.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Health concerns and perhaps even increased responsibilities related to a pet or your job or a task that you’re trying to do today could be frustrating. Hey – Rome wasn’t built in the day. (In fact, I hear they’re still working on it.) Cope as best you can. You are a strong sign.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Difficulties with kids, romantic partners and sports colleagues will be classic today. Criticisms and power struggles will be par for the course. (Isn’t this fun?) But you can use these challenges to spin a new reality? Bring something positive to the table. (You’re good at this.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your relations with family members, especially a female relative, might be challenged today. When it comes down to it, this is probably an ego battle – a test of wills. Hey, you need this like a fish needs a bicycle. Do not take the bait. Be gracious.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Verbal power struggles with others are classic today. But hey, you have to ask yourself what do you win? You might have the victory (if you will) but do you want this at the cost of a relationship with siblings, relatives or a neighbour? Get real – of course you don’t. Be reasonable with everyone. (Your big strength.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Money squabbles might create friction with someone today. Money is a very sensitive subject. Did you know that people are more private about their finances than they are about their sex life? Wait till let next week for these discussions.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Gillian Anderson (1968) shares your birthday today. You are powerful because you are friendly, charismatic and charming. You work hard for success. It’s your turn for a fun-loving year ahead! You will be more popular and will enjoy warm friendships. You will also be more grateful for your life and will appreciate the everyday happiness and beauty around you. This year is the time for an important choice. Choose wisely.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, August 9 to Saturday, August 15, 2020

All Signs

Challenging aspects make the next four weeks a time to protect and be cautious about relationships, finances, home and loved ones. On Thursday this week, we have the first of three bombshells involving Mars and Pluto. Oy! Avoid threatening situations or potential violence. (Seriously.) At the end of the week, Uranus goes retrograde for the rest of the year. (Note; When any planet is retrograde it’s time for a review.) The five-month retrograde of Uranus is our chance to sort out the surprises and changes that we experienced this year. Meanwhile, Mars in Aries strengthens this Leo Sun and boosts our energy, self-confidence and sex drive! (Come on… sex is after five and before seven.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’ve got a lot of energy with your ruler Mars in your sign – no question. (In fact, you might want to get some physical exercise to blow off any pent-up steam building within you.) Meanwhile, this is a positive week! Social get-togethers, sports events, playful activities with kids and everything to do with the arts and the entertainment world will delight you. You’re up for some fun! Enjoy entertaining at home as well as redecorating projects. However, on Wednesday and definitely Thursday you might have a tough time with authority figures. Cool your jets. Be considerate to others. Bite your tongue if you feel angry. Avoid fights and confrontations with others. (It’s a brief but tough window.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Home, family and domestic matters continue to be your prime concern. Many of you are rolling up your sleeves and tackling hands-on work at home or within the family. Fortunately, Venus will sweeten your words making you diplomatic and charming with everyone you meet. Yay! This is a solid productive time for you, and you will get a lot done, primarily at home or with real estate or family members. Midweek on Wednesday and especially Thursday, quarrels with others might erupt. They could be nasty. Try not to let this get out of hand because you will only regret it later. Your impulse will be to say or do something that is beneath you. Forewarned is forearmed!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For the most part, this is a fabulous week because it’s busy, and stimulating and full of chances to meet new faces, see new places and learn new things! (All favourite choices!) You might also attract money to you, and enjoy buying beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. Well, that was the good news. Here’s the bad stuff: On Wednesday and certainly Thursday, difficulties with a friend or a group, club or organization might be untenable. You will hit a brick wall. The harder you fight, the more they will fight back. It’s not good. Avoid this if you can. And also, avoid dangerous neighbourhoods or potentially violent situations. Be smart.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a charming week because fair Venus is in your sign paving the way for all your relations with everyone.
