Astronomy Picture of the Day

Halloween and the Ghost Head Nebula

Explanation: Halloween’s origin is ancient and astronomical. Since the fifth century BC, Halloween has been celebrated as a cross-quarter day, a day halfway between an equinox (equal day / equal night) and a solstice (minimum day / maximum night in the northern hemisphere). With a modern calendar however, even though Halloween occurs next week, the real cross-quarter day will occur the week after. Another cross-quarter day is Groundhog Day. Halloween’s modern celebration retains historic roots in dressing to scare away the spirits of the dead. Perhaps a fitting tribute to this ancient holiday is this view of the Ghost Head Nebula taken with the Hubble Space Telescope. Similar to the icon of a fictional ghost, NGC 2080 is actually a star forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way Galaxy. The Ghost Head Nebula (NGC 2080) spans about 50 light-years and is shown in representative colors.

A Spell for Decaffeinated or Herbal – Coffee or Tea to Still Wake You Up Without the Caffeine Jitters

Here in the Northern Hemisphere the days are getting shorter as we look forward to Samhain, Yule, and Imbloc. This is the time of year many of us switch from a cold beverage in the morning to a hot one. I have been 95% caffeine free for almost 15 years but on days that I had to go to work on little to no sleep I would have caffeinated coffee and wind up at the worse with a migraine or at least feel jittery. SO I had to figure out how my decaf coffee or tea or herbal tea could give me the boost that caffeinated beverages did. Standing in the kitchen one morning, while it was still dark out, waiting for my morning wake up sip I came up with a spell to put natural universal energy into my decaf coffee so I wouldn’t fall asleep walking to work. To my surprise, keep in mind I am still more asleep than awake, the spell work fantastically. This spell does work and is much better for the human body than caffeine and/or energy drinks.

Please print off this spell is you want to and hang it in your kitchen somewhere close to where to fix your cup of coffee in the morning.

Even if you drink your coffee or tea or herbal black you can use this spell to energize your beverage.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Your Favorite Hot Beverage Cup/Mug

A Regular Teaspoon

Cup of Decaffeinated Coffee or Your Favorite Tea (this spell does work on herbal teas and beverages like regular Gatorade, or even plain water also)

Milk, Cream, Half and Half, Powdered Cream or whatever you use to make your beverage have a whitish color to it

Sugar, Artificial Sweetener, Honey, Or Whatever you use to sweeten your beverage

PREPERATION TO DO THE SPELL:

Brew your decaf coffee or steep your tea

Fill your Cup or Mug (Your beverage will be HOT. Be careful and watch as you pour so you do not over pour and get burned by your beverage)

Fix it how ever you like it – Do not stir it yet

SPELL:

Put the teaspoon into your cup/mug stir counterclockwise wise three times while saying:

I stir all out all tiredness from my mind and body

Make sure the liquid comes to a stop before stirring it clockwise three times while say:

I stir wake up energy into my (coffee, tea, herbal tea)

You can do this once and keep adding the spells more times, making sure the liquid come to a full stop before reversing your direction of stirring, until you know what is right for you. When you have stirred it both ways for as long as you want finish the spell as you would any other spell that you do.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 11 PM PDT (2 AM EDT tomorrow morning). The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you welcome a chance to cocoon at home and hide from the everyday busyness of the world around you. You need to catch your breath and get grounded. A conversation with a female relative could be significant.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a restless day for you, which is why you need to get out and talk to others. You want to inform people and enlighten them by sharing your ideas and opinions. Short trips will appeal. Expect to be in touch with relatives, siblings and neighbours.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

“Show me the money!” Today your mind is on money and possessions. You feel possessive about something that you own and don’t want to lend it to anyone. (“My precious!”) If shopping, you are more likely to make “emotional” purchases instead of practical ones. Be aware of this. (Save your receipts – and the box.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which happens for two days every month. When this occurs, you have a heightened emotional response to everything around you. However, the good news is that when the Moon is in your sign, your luck improves! (It’s as if the universe owes you a favour.) Yay!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You want to keep things low-key today because you’re happy to work alone or behind the scenes. You might be more involved than usual with a parent and family issues. One thing is certain: despite your desire to be quiet, you’re very persuasive!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is an excellent day to discuss your hopes and dreams for the future with someone, perhaps a female companion. The reason for this is that someone else’s feedback will help you. You might see ways to expand your goals or tweak them? Who knows?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you are high viz., which means people notice you more than usual. In fact, some people are discussing personal details about your private life. (Like, what’s with that?) This could relate to financial issues. It might also relate to something you recently have said, because with Mercury in your sign now, you’re chatty!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you want to do something different. You want to shake things up a bit because you’re hungry for adventure. Ideally, it’s a good day to travel. If you can’t travel, talk to people from different backgrounds and learn something new.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Do not ignore financial matters related to inheritances, taxes, shared property and insurance because these issues are highlighted for your sign today. Tidy up loose details. Check bank accounts. Assume nothing and know what is happening. When to comes to money, information is power.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign, which happens for two days every month. When this occurs, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others, which is not a big deal. It simply requires patience and a little friendly cooperation.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You continue to look great in the eyes of others because the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. Meanwhile, today the Moon urges you to get better organized at work and at home. You might also see ways to improve your health.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a great day to play and schmooze! Accept all invitations for social outings, luncheons, dinners and fun times with others. Enjoy sports events and playful activities with kids. Let your hair down and enjoy!

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 27, you could be someone who is enigmatic. You appear to be this mild-mannered individual but deep down, you like danger and excitement. Mostly, you have a mysterious quality that people like! In fact, they cannot get enough of you and sometimes, this can be hard to handle. You can be tempted to take advantage of people because of this capability.

Vigorous but quiet… emotive but reserved are just a few inconsistencies that make this October 27 zodiac birthday one problematical cookie. If today is your birthday, then you are considered to be naughty and restless.

You are able to accomplish a lot when you are active but you need to learn control and self-discipline especially during your success. Use your observational skills to enhance your theories of learning and behavior studies. Your ability to learn quickly is what empowers you to be committed.

The 27 October birthday personality is controlling. As a lover, you would probably give up too much of yourself. When this happens, you can be a jealous person with obsessive qualities. You cannot control everything all the time.

When you love someone, you do not have to take his or her life away. You can be committed and loyal and still have a life outside of your partner. They will come back to you especially if they live in the same residence as you.

But partners should not keep their love in the doghouse for very long. This 27 October Scorpio birthday person may be tempted to step outside of the relationship for needs not being met at home.

What your birthday love compatibility analysis says is that you could have many lovers if that is what you choose. However, you would like to have the loyalty of one particular person. When this person is hurt or betrayed, you can be a force to be reckoned with. When you love, Scorpio, you love with your all. When you hurt, you hurt deeply. Although you dislike confrontations and conflict, you must handle the situations with maturity.

The October 27 birthday horoscope shows that you are an attractive person. You are considerate but some people think that you are cold and heartless. You are socially aware and like to share your experiences with others. You truly are grateful for a chance to enhance someone’s imagination and awareness.

The 27th October birthday astrology predictions show that you like to travel. There is nothing more like it than getting away for the weekend. In addition, you like to plan for extended stays in places that ordinary folks never get a chance to see.

The October 27 birthday meanings show that you generally walk away from arguments and conflict. You cannot stand being lied to. There is nothing worse that someone who is close to you could do. Instead, you like being able to enjoy the company of the people you are around.

As a friend, you are loyal and your friends tend to appreciate you. When you love, you love from within your soul. You are likely to lose yourself because you care so much. Chances are that you will be a jealous kind of lover making the relationship a turbulent affair.

Let’s talk about your career. Usually, this Scorpio birthday people have a tendency to occupy positions of management. You have people who look up to you. In fact, they want you to be their mentor. What a compliment! With your education, you could teach, you know, or coach. It is up to you to decide on what level but you could do this with little effort on your part.

There does not seem to be a middle ground with you, Scorpio. Either you are for it or you are against it. It’s either you work out or you eat until your heart is content. With this in mind, you should watch what you drink as well.

What your birthday says about you is that you have a tendency to overdo it. It is suggested that you avoid too many sweets and alcohol. Try eating smaller meals but eat more times per day. This will keep your energy up and you will be able to work off the calories during the day.

The October 27 birthday personality gives the impression that they are this cool and calm person but actually, they are a smoldering fire. You like taking risks and sometimes, they could be a little dangerous. You are not afraid and this is what your friends and family say they admire about you.

However, when you are in love, you could be guilty of holding on too tight making you just a bit needy and obsessive. You do not know how to do anything outside of going all out or doing nothing at all. Take care of yourself as you have a tendency to overindulge and this includes drinking and eating.
