Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 4:30 PM to 8:15 PM EDT today (1:30 PM to 5:15 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Libra into Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Steer clear of ego battles with someone close to you. It’s not worth it. Furthermore, because the Moon is opposite your sign, you have to be cooperative. Therefore, be easy going and laid back. Don’t make a big deal about anything. (For your own peace of mind.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might want to introduce reforms to where you work today or you might want to improve your health? You might also have ideas about how to improve how you deal with your pet? Whatever the case, ponder these improvements but don’t be pushy about them.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents must be patient with their kids today to avoid a clash of egos or a power struggle. (Naturally, this goes with the territory.) But for the sake of the happiness and peace of mind of everyone – don’t get sucked into this dynamic. Stay chill.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might have a power struggle with a female family member today, which is not good. It will upset the other person and it will upset you. It might even upset other family members. It’s not worth the aggro. Stay calm and don’t take the bait.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel you have to clarify something or convince someone about something because you see a better way of doing things or you know the truth. Nevertheless, this will create an unpleasant exchange. Is it worth it? Think about it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Money quarrels might arise today. Or perhaps a power struggle will arise related to something that you own. Perhaps someone wants to borrow something? Whatever the case, try not to make a big deal about this. Don’t get your belly in a rash.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Naturally, with the Moon in your sign, you feel more emotional about things. This is why you might have a dustup with a parent or a family member. Feelings are strong! They might create a power struggle. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Stay chill.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are convincing with intense power and strong self-discipline, even if you do not see yourself this way. Today in discussions with others, you might want to get your way or insist on being heard. Whatever the case, it could create a dispute. It’s not worth it. Easy does it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might go head-to-head with a friend or a member of a group today perhaps about a charitable cause or something related to your own future goals? Whatever the case, it’s not worth creating bad feelings for someone. Try to see the big picture.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today you might make a public stand about introducing improvements or flexing your muscles in some way because you want to get things done. In one way, this might be important. But in another way, you might antagonize others, especially bosses or parents. Is it worth it?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because you will run into a confrontation with someone. And anyhow – there are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones. You cannot change people’s minds that easily. Relax.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Disputes about shared property, taxes, debt or inheritances might arise today. If so, you might have a nasty encounter with someone. But if you are patient, you can avoid this. Actually, patience is a virtue. Why not welcome this opportunity to practice it?

At the same time, a person born on this day will take friends and family out to celebrate a raise in pay or news of a new addition to the family.

As a negative birthday characteristic, those born today can be self-centered or “stuck” on themselves. You are good, Leo, but money nor fame determines the nature of man.

General

Knight of Pentacles – A Court Card

Pages 130 – 131

This is the card of new career adventure and an auspicious occasion. There is energy and enthusiasm for the new project or new job. There may be some kind of progression in training involved, as with levels of skilled craftmanship from apprentice to master. The indication is that there is an auspicious change on the horizon, something sought and approached with unbound eagerness. The card could refer to a new job, or even entry to the military service where one may learn a skill or trade.

Here the Knight of Pentacles is a young woman. Leaving the farm and freshly plowed fields behind her, she rides her muscular workhorse and carries her earned pay in a pouch on her belt. She is excited and determined to make her way in the wider world, earning a living through her hard work, for with her draft horse she can hire out to plow fields at different farms. This card indicates a useful person who offers stability and approaches work in a reliable and methodical manner, yet is able to implement new ideas and carry them through to a satisfactory conclusion.

Peonies, flowers for business and opportunities, are carried by the Knight of Pentacles. A flacon, a symbol of loyalty, security, and communication, flies near the knight.

MeaningJob opportunity, auspicious occasion, useful person, responsible, and competent worker, new career advancement, enthusiasm, reliable worker, goal achieved, beginning of a new stage of work or career, diligent service, consistent effort applied to tasks, gentle and methodical, good business sense, self-reliant.

Prompt Words: Job opportunity, new career adventure.

Bjarkan

Sound: “b”, “p”, “v”, “mb”, “mp”
Stands for: Birch Twig
Casting meaning: The birch twig represents rebirth and purification as does the rune Bjarkan. It is also a woman’s rune symbolizing gestation and birth.

Witches’ Rune

Otherworldly Oracle – Witches Runes

Scythe: the reaping, death, waning, end of an era, releasing and clearing

The scythe may seem scary to some, like the Death card in a tarot reading. BUT the scythe also means an end to something that needs to be released. It could mean clearing and letting go.

Huath/Uathe

H is for Huath, or Uatha, and is symbolic of the Hawthorn tree. This prickly-thorned tree is associated with cleansing, protection and defense. Tie a thorn with a red ribbon and use it as a protective amulet in your home, or place a bundle of thorns under a baby’s crib to keep bad energy away. Because the Hawthorn typically blooms around Beltane, it is also strongly connected with fertility, masculine energy, and fire.

In folklore, the Hawthorn is associated with the land of the Fae. Thomas the Rhymer met the Faerie Queen under a Hawthorn tree and ended up in the Faerie realm for seven years. Despite its connection with female and goddess-centered pre-Christian belief, it’s considered unlucky to bring Hawthorn into your home. This may stem from the fact that some species of Hawthorn give off a particularly unpleasant –almost corpse-like–scent after they’ve been cut. No one wants their home to smell like death.

In Glastonbury, England, there’s a famous Hawthorn tree known as the Holy Thorn. The tree that stands there today is supposed to be a descendant of one that stood on Glastonbury Tor two thousand years ago, when Joseph of Arimathea brought the Grail to England from the Holy Land. When Joseph thrust his staff into the ground, it turned into a Hawthorn tree.

Numerology

One

Number 1 literally suggests being number 1 in the things you’re doing. If it’s business, then number 1 shows your admirable leadership ability, your charisma when showing others the way, and in turn, people’s natural, innate desire to trust your lead. If you decide to own your business or be a manager at a company, you’ll succeed greatly. Just remember, not every other person is a number 1! It will help to have patience and understanding for those who’re born to be followers.

In matters of love, it’s easy for you to be on your own and not feel lonely. You love being in a relationship but you also enjoy being single – sometimes too much! When you’re going for a long-term commitment, make sure your partner doesn’t have co-dependency issues, as it will be a deal-breaker for you.

If a certain date adds up to number 1, that day is a great day to start new projects, to go out on a first date, to get a new haircut, and to plan ahead.

Spider Symbolism, Meanings & The Spider Spirit Animal

Spider meaning and symbolism include artistry, manifestation, patience, feminine power, ancient wisdom, illusion, balance, and interconnection. A source of fear for some and fascination to others, the spider is an ancient being, having inhabited the Earth for more than 300 million years. (By comparison, our own ancestors date back to just 2.8 million years ago.) In addition to being ancient, spiders live on every continent except Antarctica. So, they appear in the mythologies and folklore of cultures around the world.

In this post, you’ll learn about spider symbols, meanings, and mythology, as well as the spider spirit animal. You’ll also learn about spider’s web symbolism and metaphors.

Friday the 13th Origins, History, Folk Lore

Long considered a harbinger of bad luck, Friday the 13th has inspired a late 19th-century secret society, an early 20th-century novel, a horror film franchise and not one but two unwieldy terms—paraskavedekatriaphobia and friggatriskaidekaphobia—that describe fear of this supposedly unlucky day.

The Fear of 13

Just like walking under a ladder, crossing paths with a black cat or breaking a mirror, many people hold fast to the belief that Friday the 13th brings bad luck. Though it’s uncertain exactly when this particular tradition began, negative superstitions have swirled around the number 13 for centuries.

Friday the 13th: 13 Facts About the Unluckiest Day in the Calendar

Friday the 13th is thought by many to be the unluckiest day in the Gregorian calendar. Here are 13 facts about this day of ill repute.

1. It’s Unclear Why It Is Feared

Very little is known about the origins of the day’s notoriety. Some historians believe that the superstitions surrounding it arose in the late 19th century. The first documented mention of the day can be found in a biography of Italian composer Gioachino Rossini, who died on a Friday the 13th. A 1907 book, Friday the Thirteenth, by American businessman Thomas Lawson, may have further perpetuated the superstition.

Others believe that the myth has Biblical origins. Jesus was crucified on a Friday, and there were 13 guests at the Last Supper the night before his crucifixion.

Another account suggests that the day has been associated with misfortune since 1307 when on a Friday the 13th, the French king gave the orders to arrest hundreds of Knights Templar in France.

2. Yet, the Fear Is Very Real

So real that one scientific name wasn’t enough. The fear of Friday the 13th is also called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia. Now say that 10 times really fast!

Friggatriskaidekaphobia comes from Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning 13, and phobia, meaning fear. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is also derived from Greek: paraskeví translates as Friday, and dekatria is another way of saying 13.

THE ORIGIN OF FRIDAY THE 13TH AS AN UNLUCKY DAY

Being wary of Friday the 13th is much more than a quaint superstition observed by a few uneducated people in distant, unreachable towns and hamlets. In the United States alone, it is estimated that between 17 and 21 million people dread that date to the extent that it can be officially classified as a phobia.

So why is Friday the 13th considered such an “evil” day?

The origins aren’t perfectly clear, but we do know that both Friday and, separately, the number 13 have long been considered unlucky and it was around the late 19th century that the first documented instances started popping up of people putting the two together to form the unluckiest day of all.
