Daily Horoscope

To read your daily horoscope

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions after 10 PM EDT today (7 PM PDT). The Moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A conversation with a partner or close friend will be lively today because the Moon is in Aries and that makes people feisty and assertive! (Ya think?) Nevertheless, Mercury (the planet of communication) is dancing with Jupiter, which is great for business and also a good time to make future plans!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might be stubborn about something today. You might not talk about it but privately, you are digging in your heels and staying entrenched about something. Fortunately, discussions at work will be positive and optimistic. People are prepared to think big! (This is good.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

An emotional discussion with a female acquaintance might take place today. This could relate to a romantic situation, a friendship or something to do with your kids. Lighten up and don’t make a big deal about things. Instead, look for ways to play and enjoy life!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Tread carefully today when talking to authority figures, parents and bosses. You might feel compelled to confront someone about something. (“It’s now or never!”) Listen to a family member who might throw some light on things or steer you in a different direction.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Avoid controversial discussions about politics, religion and racial issues today because people are emotionally combative. (Not good.) Nevertheless, today you are optimistic and full of positive ideas. In fact, you’re thinking big, which is why you can influence others and smooth things over.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Arguments about shared property might arise today. (These are probably just power struggles.) Don’t even go there. Instead, focus on moneymaking ideas and how to boost your earnings or your business in a big way. Believe in your future!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Difficult discussions with partners and close friends might take place today, in part, because people are intense and obsessed about things. Fortunately, Mercury is in your sign dancing with lucky Jupiter, which puts a whole new spin on things. Enjoy social outings, sports and fun times with kids.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do not get carried away with power struggles related to your health, your job or a pet today (which you will be tempted to do). Go easy because you can come on like gangbusters. Don’t do this. Trust your inner vibes and take the high road. Set a positive example.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be patient with romantic partners today. Likewise, be patient with your kids because people might be heated about issues because they’re obsessed about something. Fortunately, relations with friends and groups are upbeat, positive and lots of fun. (Go with what works.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Despite the fact that discussions with a female family member might be challenging today; nevertheless, this is a good day to talk with a boss or someone in authority because they will like your big ideas. Especially your financial ideas about making money.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid power struggles with others today, especially with siblings, relatives and daily contacts because why even go there? Don’t make yourself and others miserable. Instead focus on future travel plans or exploring opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine. Ditto for higher education. Exciting possibilities!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t get your belly in a rash about financial matters today or something that you own because it will only upset you and others as well. Instead look for ways to work with the wealth of others and deal with shared property in a way where everyone wins. This is possible today.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress, singer Billie Piper (1982) shares your birthday today. You are an optimist who is fair-minded, independent and self-sufficient. You have a natural grace and elegance. You are a hard-working perfectionist capable of self-discipline. This year is your final year of a nine-year cycle, which is why you are letting go of what is no longer meaningful to you. It’s time to wrap up old business and clear your plate.

Four Of Wands

The meaning of the Four of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

Spring has come, flowers bloom everywhere. The roses spread the sweet fragrance as an invitation to all residents of the mysterious kingdom. From the east, the ground shook with the footsteps of the unicorns, leaping forward by the call and leading the Fairy messengers to the party. The cold season is still fluttering in the air, but this delay should be seen as a joy, and then more wonderful work must be started. Until then, let’s be wise to take advantage of this resting period.

The Fairy messengers lifted the trumpets up high, and then exerted themselves to create a thunderous sound that spread throughout the dawn. Accordingly, the strong wind blowing, disturbing the mane and the wings as if waking everything out of their deep periods of sleep. More quickly, they glided until the world turned into a small colored patch, then with a joyful scream, they burst into the air and glided through the sky.

The Four of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot calls for celebrations and anniversaries. The initial success brought the atmosphere that filled with hope and joy. There is always a peaceful and harmonious feeling for anyone who comes here. However, once the goal has been achieved, this prosperity needs to be sustained. Let’s take time to relax and enjoy, but do not forget to prepare to return to work to achieve this goal. The fire must always burn. So, it needs to be nourished to keep the flames constantly burning, not extinguishing into sparks. Let’s learn to give up the limits and know how to embrace bestowed freedom.

Keywords related to the Four of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot: peace, achievement, commemoration, satisfaction, blessing, harmony, secure, stability, partnership, success, accomplishment, harvest, improvement, prosperity, enjoyment, praise, productivity, wealth, contentment, happiness, vacation, relaxation, marriage, honeymoon, reward.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham

Ngetal

Healing, cleaning, cleansing, catharsis, paring down

Tree: Broom (Cytisus spp.)

Letter: Ng

Like when a fever breaks, broom signifies the end of a struggle and the subsequent ability to clear out the junk to make way for a newer, more positive approach. Walking a way from a bad habit or situation can be painful, but not necessarily so. It may also be gradual. Overall, Ngetal is the importance of getting rid of old junk and baggage (this could be actual clutter or psychological baggage, which of course are intimately linked) or it could mean the resolution of action against someone who has wronged you, whether it is forgiveness or cutting and clearing them out of your life. If it is forgiveness, Ngetal suggests it is coming from a genuine place of inner peace. Apologizing does not necessarily make you an apologist.

There is a process of analysis and reflection that eventually distances anger and enables you to feel it without being puppeted by it. Letting go of attachments that aren’t healthy, for instance, an obsession with being liked for the way you look, will help you develop in ways that fulfill your purpose in this life. Ngetal could signify you are beginning to release anxieties about what you have no control over, which will go a long way in healing your spirit

Questions when you draw Ngetal:

Numerology

Numerology Double Digit Numbers

17 – Seventeen

It is spiritual growth, faith, and balance. It is also wealth or bankruptcy. It is an inner struggle to remain true to spiritual and moral values, while at the same time dedicating itself to the material world – one of the most conflicting numbers.

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net – Hexagram 37

Hexagram 37 – Thirty-Seven

Chia Jên / Family Duties

Warming Air Currents rise and spread from the Hearthfire:
The Superior Person weighs his words carefully and is consistent in his behavior.

Be as faithful as a good wife.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

One in this situation must be keenly aware of his influence on others.
Maintain a healthy respect for the ripple effect of your words and deeds.
To some you serve as a role model.
You can either help shape their world or tilt them into chaos.
Show temperance and consideration to all.

Angel Number

From Angel Numbers – 111

111 – One Hundred Eleven

Number 111 means that energy gate is opened and your thoughts are materializing so quickly right now. Choose carefully your thoughts at this time. They need to be in harmony with your wishes and desires. Give absolutely no energy to fears, otherwise they can become reality and get fulfilled quicker than you thought.

As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.

Ancient Celebrations for Today – OSTARA

For more about Ostara and the Wheel of The Year

Ostara marks the Spring Equinox, which happens between March 19 -23. Ostara is a pagan celebration of the German goddess Eostre and the origins of the Christian celebration of Easter. As the beginning of spring Ostara is a good time to literally and figuratively plant seeds for the future.

In modern day living Ostara is also good time to start taking action on the ideas and goals you started thinking about around Yule and Imbolc. What you plant during Ostara will be ready to be harvested during the coming summer months and the sabbats of Beltane, Litha and Lughnasadh.

Ostara is also a good time to freshen up your home and life. Take time to do some spring cleaning. Cleaning isn’t just limited to your home. Take some time to declutter and clean up areas where you spend a lot of time, like your car, your computer (delete those old emails!) or your work office.

Symbols Of Ostara

Ancient Celebrations for Today – MABON

For more about Mabon and the Wheel of The Year

Known as the pagan Thanksgiving, Mabon marks the Autumn Equinox, when day and night are equal, making it a time of balance, equality and harmony.  In ancient times Mabon was a celebration of the second harvest (Lughnasadh was the first) when farmers gathered hearty foods like gourds, pumpkins, grapes and apples.

Modern Mabon celebrations are a time to give thanks for the abundance of Mother Earth – both literally and spiritually.  It’s also a good time to reflect on the Wheel of the Year, recognizing your successes and letting go of the things that did not serve you during the past twelve months.

History Of Mabon

Modern Pagans began celebrating Mabon as the last of the eight Sabbats in the 1970s, but its roots as a harvest festival go back to ancient times.

Named after the ancient Welsh hero named Mabon ap Modron, which means Son of Mother, Mabon is the second of three harvest festivals that take place in the Wheel of the Year (Lughnasadh is the first and Samhain is the third).  Similar to Apollo, the figure of Mabon was depicted as a handsome youth with a lyre. As a baby Mabon was said to have been held hostage as a baby in the underworld, similar to the story of Persephone and Demeter.

Indeed, the Greek goddess Demeter is much more closely associated with the Autumn harvest, as…

Date: September 20th – 23rd, depending on the year

Other Names: Atumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest

Pronunciations: MAY-bun, MAY-bon, MAH-boon, MAH-bawn

The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection.

Mabon is considered a time of the Mysteries. It is a time to honor Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests, whether they be from toiling in our gardens, working at our jobs, raising our families, or just coping with the hussle-bussle of everyday life. May your Mabon be memorable, and your hearts and spirits be filled to overflowing!
