Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Today’s General Tarot Card

Five of Pentacles – Loss; unpleasant differences

Pages 150 and 151

A man and a woman walk away from each other, each determined that their way or opinion is the only one. Five broken disks with pentacles lie on the ground between them. These disks symbolize life, friendship, cooperation, and/or love built between them, now destroyed because of ego and lack of compromise. Five dragons in the sky above them scream their anger and displeasure. Little dragons hiss at each other over the broken disks. The balance of the spiritual forces they have cultivated with their relationship has been upset, turning positive energies and events into negative ones.

Divinatory Meaning: Take care or there may be a loss of home or job. Differences arise that could divide friends or lovers. There may be a period of deep loneliness.

Today’s Love Tarot Card

King of Wands – A Court Card- Sudden changes.

Pages 80 and 81

A teenage boy sits astride an Air dragon as it flies through the air. A sword hangs at his side, and he wears a shiny breastplate, boots, and blue trousers and shirt. In a pouch hanging from one shoulder you can see the end of the wand. The young magician has progressed beyond simple communication with his teachers and has learned to become a Dragon Rider, one who has greater access to creative energies. He knows the value of astral travel for spiritual growth and a happier life. Because his trust in his dragon companion, the magician will not come to harm, as long as he listens to words of advice. The void between worlds is a place where positive and negative energies are in balance, there is complete harmony and peace and a seeming sense of nothingness. Yet the void (between worlds or within oneself) contains perfection, a oneness with all life forms everywhere.

Divinatory Meaning: There is a possibility of a sudden change of residence or job. Quick action is needed to resolve issues in your favor. Things are now moving forward.

Today’s Health Tarot Card

Three of Swords – Emotional upheavals

Three Fire dragons fight in a stormy sky above a blazing forest fire. Each holds a Celtic sword. They twist together in a Celtic knot. The number three was an ancient sacred number, denoting the Goddess and Her power of destruction and regeneration, death and rebirth. Here, the power is tangled and bound in a knot, signifying the stopping or progress. The swords of action are used for wounding, not liberating. The dragons are oblivious to the destruction they cause by their dissension. The forest (events in life) has exploded into a destructive fire because of the wrong choice of action. Tangled in emotional anger, a person can fail to realize the destruction such feelings and actions bring to the rest of  life.

Divinatory Meaning: Arguments and emotional upheavals will dominate this period of your life. There is a deep sense of loss and betrayal caused by someone close to you.

Today’s Wealth Tarot Card

Two of Swords – Tension; indecision.

Pages 88 and 89

A Fire dragon holds two long swords in it’s claws, as it faces a man across an open, blazing vent in the rocky ground. The only connection to the other side is a narrow stone bridge without railings. The man hesitates, one foot on the bridge, one foot on solid ground. One of his hands is outstretched to take a sword, but he must cross to get one. Celtic spirals are craved into the stark stone of the surrounding landscape. The bridge represents the link between the conscious and subconscious minds. This tenuous area of the mind can be a frightening place when one is learning to join the psychic senses with everyday, common-sense deductions in order to make a better decisions. The only way to safely cross the bridge is to walk across without analyzing the potential for defeat or looking down at the dangerous fire below. The strength to take action can be drawn from knowledge of the meaning of the Celtic spirals; any momentary failure can be a stepping stone to a now opportunity.

Divinatory Meaning: There is tension and indecision in relationships or friendships. You are having difficulty gaining a sense of balance because you have no definite plans as to the direction you want to go. You are faced with having to balance two important things in your life without being able to make a firm decision.

Today’s Ogham Stave 

          From Ogham Symbol Gallery

St – Straith

This symbol, used for the sound St, is Straith (sometimes seen as Straif), the Blackthorn tree. A symbol of authority and control, the Blackthorn is connected to strength and triumph over adversity. Blackthorn is a tree (although some might argue it’s more of a really big shrub) of winter, and its berries only ripen after the first frost. White flowers appear in the spring, and the bark is black and thorny.

On a medicinal level, Blackthorn berries–sloe berries–are brewed to make a tonic (this is what Sloe Gin is made from). The tonic can be used as a laxative and/or diuretic, as well as a skin astringent. In folklore, the Blackthorn has a fairly unpleasant reputation. An English legend refers to a devastating winter as a “Blackthorn Winter.” It also represents the darker side of magic and witchcraft. Because it’s a plant that becomes hardy when all around it is dying, it is associated with the Dark Mother, the Crone aspect of the Goddess, particularly the Cailleach in some parts of Scotland and Ireland. There is also a strong connection to the Morrighan, because of Blackthorn’s association with the blood and death of warriors. In fact, in early Celtic culture, the Blackthorn was popular for its use in the cudgel shillelagh.

Straith Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to change. Your plans may be altered, or even destroyed, so plan to deal with it. The appearance of Straith often indicates the influence of external forces.

Magical Aspects: You’re at the beginning of a new journey, and there will be some surprises–possibly unpleasant ones–along the way. Overcoming these obstacles will give you strength. Realize that you–and your life–are changing.


Today’s Numerology Number


A person with this number is often misunderstood and is frequently the victim of gossip – it’s about global awareness and a leadership role in humanitarian affairs. It can bring jealousy and possessiveness to relationships. It is considered a Power number.

Today’s Animal Spirit Guide

Panda – “Create a sacred space for yourself in your home and/or place of work”

Pages 83 to 85

A Sacred Space is an area in your home or work place where you have some privacy for contemplation, mediation, or simply a bit of quite time to think. If this isn’t possible to do at work, it becomes even more imperative that you provide this for yourself in your home. This is a space that is your territory, whether it’s an entire room or a corner of your living room or bedroom. Place a cozy chair or pillow there, and then set up a simple altar, one that contains a few pieces that are both personal and precious. Include a candle in your space that you can light when you’re abiding there. Make your sacred space a comfortable place to hang out, with no agenda or compulsion to do anything. As Buddha said, “Don’t just do something; sit there.”

You may find all sorts of reasons or excuses not to do this, but don’t cave in to these internal objections. Make it important enough for your emotional and mental health and balance to create this kind of private spiritual sanctuary. Be sure to do nothing in particular for a good period of the time you sit there. The increasingly rapid pace of life and growing intensities in the world are even greater cause for doing so. It’s a place for solace, one where you can more closely listen to your inner voice and feelings, and tap into the Life Force inside that’s expressing itself as you.

Associations: Rarity; Vegetarianism; Polarity; Willpower; Solitude; Privacy; Sacred Space; Intuition; Perspective; Gentleness; Strength; Flexibility; Modesty; Economy
