2 Printable Spells for Memory

Use these spells wisely on yourself. Do not use them on anyone else without their permission. The reason I do not use them on someone else without permission is because you will be messing with their free will which takes these from gray to black magic spells. Unless of course your spiritual/magickal path follows the dark side of witchcraft.

The Moon is Earth’s constant companion, the first skywatching target pointed out to us as children. We watch its face change as the month progresses, and see patterns and pictures in its geological features.

It’s the object in the night sky that humanity knows best ― and the one that’s easiest to study. Whether your tools are a telescope, a pair of binoculars, or just your eyes, you can find plenty of features on the Moon.

We only ever see one side of the Moon from Earth. That’s because the interplay of gravity between Earth and Moon slows the Moon into a rotation that paces its own. The Moon rotates, but it rotates at the same speed that it orbits around Earth. This keeps the same side always turned toward us. We call this being “tidally locked.

The Moon has no glow of its own, but shines with the reflected light of the Sun. During its crescent phase in the twilight or dawn, you can also sometimes see the dark portion of the Moon glowing faintly in the sunlight that reflects off Earth, an effect called earthshine.

You can look at the Moon during any of its illuminated phases, but for better viewing of craters and mountains, try phases other than the full Moon. The shadows on the surface will be more pronounced, and help distinguish features you might otherwise miss.

Eyeballing the Moon

Looking at the Moon with only your eyes, you see mostly areas of white and gray. These gray patches are solidified volcanic lava flows. In the Moon’s youth, its interior was still molten, and magma would erupt onto its surface. These dark areas formed when massive asteroid or meteorite impacts on the Moon’s surface created basins. Because the impact basins were often the lowest places on the Moon’s surface, they would begin to fill with erupting lava. The lava was similar to the basalt that erupts on Earth and, like on Earth, cooled to form a relatively dark-colored rock. We call these areas the lunar seas, or maria.

The lighter-colored areas are called the highlands, and show the earliest crust on the Moon, dominated by a type of rock called anorthosite, which is primarily made up of the white mineral anorthite or plagioclase.

What you see on the Moon with your eyes only will vary depending on your eyesight. Give yourself plenty of time for your eyes to adjust and look carefully. You may be able to see some of the larger impact craters on the Moon’s surface if your vision is sharp enough, including Copernicus, Kepler, and Aristarchus and Tycho. You may even be able to see some of the bright streaks that are ray systems emanating from the Copernicus or Tycho craters, created when material was thrown outward by the force of the original impacts.

Lunar Sightseeing

Pick up a pair of binoculars, and the Moon transforms.

With binoculars, you’ll still see the entire Moon at once, but now it’ll have terrain. Smooth-looking patterns of gray and white resolve into craters and large mountain ridges. You’ll be able to tell where the Moon is relatively undisturbed and where it’s been pockmarked by impacts. Binoculars introduce texture, especially when you look at the Moon when it’s in any other phase other than full. Focus particularly along the terminator line between light and dark, where features will cast long shadows that make them clearer. Choose binoculars with a magnification of 7 at a minimum. Though a magnification of 10 or 15 will provide more detail, you may need a tripod to steady them.

Under the gaze of a telescope, the Moon becomes too big to take in at once. Now you’ll see real mountains, and not just craters but the crater chains created when impact debris splashes around the main craters. You’ll see valleys, and the cracks in the Moon’s surface called rilles, formed when the lava that once filled a basin cooled and contracted. If this is your first time looking at the Moon through a telescope, you may feel the same wonder Galileo felt seeing that familiar orb in the sky transform into another world. Be sure to examine the Moon at many different phases and on different days. Parts of the Moon near the edge of the disk come into view at some times but not others, a wobbling phenomenon known as libration. Experienced observers can take advantage of favorable librations to see about 59 percent of the lunar surface.

NGC 6559: East of the Lagoon

Image Credit & Copyright: Roberto SartoriExplanation: Slide your telescope just east of the Lagoon Nebula to find this alluring field of view in the rich starfields of the constellation Sagittarius toward the central Milky Way. Of course the Lagoon nebula is also known as M8, the eighth object listed in Charles Messier’s famous catalog of bright nebulae and star clusters. Close on the sky but slightly fainter than M8, this complex of nebulae was left out of Messier’s list though. It contains obscuring dust, striking red emission and blue reflection nebulae of star-forming region NGC 6559 at right. Like M8, NGC 6559 is located about 5,000 light-years away along the edge of a large molecular cloud. At that distance, this telescopic frame nearly 3 full moons wide would span about 130 light-years.

Moon Alert

After 10:45 AM EDT today (7:45 AM PDT) there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The Moon is in Scorpio. (4:45 PM CEST)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Even though you have high energy today, and you’re enthusiastic about starting something – go gently. You might overwhelm someone. Incidentally, this could work the other way: you might attract someone to you who is super enthusiastic about something!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have a lot of energy to work today. In fact, you’re so enthusiastic, you will probably start to delegate and give orders to others. Easy does it because they might resent this. Ideally, you will work best if you are on your own.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you need to be physically active, which is why physical, outdoor sports will appeal. If these activities are competitive – so much the better because you’re keen to win! This energy can also be channeled into working with kids. Romantically, you might initiate something exciting and different! Woot!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A parent or older family member might have something to say today. Of course, you have strong views as well. Use your skilful means to work in cooperation with others to make improvements at home. This can be done if you don’t try to run things. Easy does it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are super enthusiastic today, which is why you will easily inspire others to do your bidding. This is a great day for teachers, salespeople or anyone who wants to convince or persuade others to agree with their ideas. Spontaneous short trips will delight. You definitely have something to say!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re full of moneymaking ideas that you might want to initiate today. If these are new ideas, wait until Mercury retrograde is over. (Be smart.) Nevertheless, you can still generate enthusiasm and excitement for your plans. You’re ready to work hard to earn money today – and spend it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today Mars is lined up with the Sun in your sign, which makes you ready to tackle something new! You want to begin something. You are also ready to compete with anyone. You want the independence to do your own thing because you don’t want anyone bossing you around. Definitely!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Some behind-the-scenes ideas make you excited today. Quite likely, this excitement will be obvious if you’re talking to others. Nevertheless, with Venus in your sign, you will present yourself with diplomacy and charm, even though you’re on a mission!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with friends and groups are upbeat and energetic today! In particular, you will love to be active in physical sports, especially in a competition. (You want to win!) This same high energy will be apparent in meetings with others. Take it easy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ambition is aroused today, which means you intend to achieve something. It’s okay to go after what you want; but make sure you don’t alienate bosses and important people. You will need these people, so make the effort to give them respect. (Be smart.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects today because you might go overboard due to the fact that you’re super enthusiastic. Instead, channel this energy into making travel plans, or perhaps learning or studying something new. Your best option is outdoors physical activity! Being desk bound is not your best choice today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ll have no trouble defending your own best interests in discussions about inheritances, wills and shared property today. (That’s putting it mildly.) That’s because today you are gung-ho to make a statement, especially with partners and close friends. “Now hear this! Now hear this!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV personality Simon Cowell (1959) shares your birthday today. You are a visionary with futuristic ideas. You are intelligent, witty and creative; and determined about going after what you want. Please note: Simplicity is the key to your current year. It’s important to build solid structures in your life both literally and figuratively. Focus on improving your health as well, especially through physical exercise. Remember your practical needs.

Birthday Horoscope

To read anyone’s birthday horoscope

OCTOBER 7 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Libra. You are a Libran who has a serious side as well as a humorous side. You take on life with the attitude that you only live once. You go for the gold. This takes a lot of discipline and dedication.

However, you maintain that family comes first in your life. Without their support, you wouldn’t be where you are and couldn’t achieve the things you want out of life. Mainly, you work so that your loved ones will have a comfortable life. Your friends and family think the world of you.

Libra, you have a lot of talent. As a career, you have many options. The October 7 birthday personality is not afraid to try new things. You find comfort in knowing that you are not limited to one profession. Let’s talk about what you can do.

You can educate, to counsel or to be a social worker. If you were born under this Libra birthday, it is very likely that you want to learn, you love learning! A job in research would not be far-fetched. It is your decision. Whatever you want to do, you can do it.

The October 7 horoscope predicts that you tend to stand up for what is fair or for what’s right. You think that things should be balanced and not just given to a select few. This is natural for you.

This zodiac birthday people usually have their ideas. Typically, they do not dance to the same beat as everyone else. Additionally, you are a person who has dreams, and you could be unrealistic in looking for perfection in certain situations and people. But people admire this quality about you.

October 7 zodiac predicts that you are mysterious. You don’t like to share your thoughts with people not even those closest to you. Today’s birthday horoscope tells that you could be lacking confidence when it comes to love and romance. However, when you do find that you can let your guard down, you trust that person wholeheartedly. Since it is hard to get this Libra to trust, betrayal should not be a consideration.

As a child, you may have had a strict upbringing but an affectionate one. Your parents may have taught you the fine details of budding into a fruitful adult. You get your strength from your childhood and the values that were given to you.

You will likely teach your children what you have learned and teach them your values. You may feel that you must teach children about respect and compassion for others. You want others to benefit from your experiences in life.

If today October 7 is your birthday, you value the earth. You recycle the plastic and aluminum and separate the glass containers. You probably take the subway to work or ride your bike to the corner store. You are an asset to your community and society.

This Libran can be so involved that you tire yourself out. There is generally a petition for a cause that takes up much of your time that you need to find time to refuel your strength and energy. It is likely that you find meditation to be useful.

Another October 7 birthday trait that belongs to a Libra born today is that you have the power of persuasion. You appreciate the simple things in life so; you are not a materialistic person.

On the other hand, you realize the power of money as well. You like what it can do for someone who does not have as much as you do. You feel that someone with the same ability should use it wisely. Making a difference in people’s lives is what drives you out of bed every day, and it keeps you thinking of ways to make their situations better.

Fair and just are just two words that describe this October 7 birthday personality. You typically do not like anything that is dirty or vulgar or things that tip your scale off balance. Those of you born today believe that two heads are better than one.

The October 7th horoscope shows that you like being partnered with someone who cares about the same issues and has the same interest as you. Usually, you are the peacemaker in the family or the workplace. You are truly dedicated to making your world a better place.
