2021 November 20

An Almost Total Lunar Eclipse

Image Credit & Copyright: Robert Fedez

Explanation: Predawn hours of November 19 found the Moon in partly cloudy skies over Cancun, Mexico. Captured in this telephoto snapshot, the lunar disk is not quite entirely immersed in Earth’s dark umbral shadow during a long partial lunar eclipse. The partial eclipse was deep though, deep enough to show the dimmed but reddened light in Earth’s shadow. That’s a sight often anticipated by fans of total lunar eclipses. Wandering through the constellation Taurus, the eclipsed Moon’s dimmer light also made it easier to spot the Pleiades star cluster. The stars of the Seven Sisters share this frame at the upper right, with the almost totally eclipsed Moon.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Generosity is a wonderful thing. However, when discussing how to divide or share something today (perhaps an inheritance) be careful that you don’t give away the farm because you might be tempted to do this. Be generous but remember your own self-interests, too.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might be excited about work-related travel plans today. Or perhaps you’re enthusiastic about something else? Note: be careful because it’s easy to overlook small details today, especially if you’re filled with enthusiasm and in a hurry. (Things might get a bit slapdash.) Stay focused.

NOVEMBER 20 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Scorpio who has a strong will. You are determined and dedicated to living a successful life. You love challenges and are always ready to fight for your rights.

Besides being a person who loves a challenge, you are also willing to make sacrifices for your friends and family. This could be because you tend to be the nurturer of the group. Everyone appreciates this quality as it is hard to find this in a friend or family member.

Additionally, you can possess intuitive qualities that make you popular when it comes to being a trusted friend. This Scorpio birthday is very charming and alluring. However, you can overdo it, you go to the extreme every so often, Scorpio.

The November 20th astrology analysis predicts that underneath that quiet exterior can be a hot-headed and impulsive individual. You tend to take pleasure in living a life that is comfortable.

It then affords you the option to be of help to others. There is one setback to this, and that is you tend to be clingy. Yes…there are times when you are to the breaking point of being intrusive, jealous, and obsessive.

Otherwise, you have a good heart. The future of person who born on November 20 shows that you are too nice for your good. That’s just like you… a Scorpio. This could be of a disadvantage if you were in positions of management or leadership.

You love the feeling of having power over others or rather having others dependent on you. Having these emotions, you may find it difficult to get over hurt feelings especially those resulting from the act of betrayal.

The November 20th love compatibility predicts that this Scorpio lover is a puzzling individual. Initially, it’s difficult to commit but once you decide to be with one person, you devote yourself to that one person only. Your partner should be a good listener and tactful.

In the bedroom, the November 20 birthday personality should be, above all things, passionate and open to trying new things. You couldn’t go wrong if you were thinking about becoming involved with someone born on this zodiac birthday. On the other hand, you should not play deceitful love games with this Scorpion.

When it comes to your health, you seem to get it. You take care of your body, mind, and soul. You take measures to develop your inner self, maturing into a strong emotionally and physically balanced individual. Additionally, you follow a nutritious and wholesome diet. What’s more to say than kudos, Scorpio.

What’s most important to someone born on a November 20 birthday is family or those they love. You have dreams and aspirations. As an enterprising person, it is highly possible that you could turn a hobby into a lucrative profession. The difficulty lies in making a decision on which goal or cause to pursue.

You realize that it may not happen when you feel it should but rather at the time that change should happen. You are practical, logical and have a great understanding of nature. You know that some things are beyond your control, so you don’t spend your wheels worrying about those situations.

The November 20 horoscope shows that you are a dependable, sensible but occasionally a careless person. As a lover or as a friend, you may find it hard to let go and let people in, but once you make up your mind, relationships generally last.

Those of you born today are likely health conscious individuals who could live for a long time. Your spiritual values and practices enable you to live almost a stress-free life. Overall, anyone would be lucky to have you as a friend, family member, business associate or life partner.

Saturn brings a powerful, somewhat intimidating power to Saturdays. This is another great day for banishing and protection magic, as well as for setting strong boundaries. The energy of Saturn is very orderly and is great when structure is needed.

 

From Numerologist.com – Saturday’s Angel

Archangel Cassiel is the resonant Angel for Saturdays.

Known by many as the “angel of tears” he oversees the parts of life that we may perceive as limiting –  karma, trials, tests and lessons, old age and reincarnation. He is also the guardian of land, property, houses and farming.  It’s easy to see why he’s an archangel many would avoid, but if you lack stability in your life, and are willing to commit to long term goals by sacrificing immediate pleasures to get there, then he is your go-to angel.

He is serious and will help you deal with issues of a serious nature –  death, missing persons, psychic attack and the eradication of illness, pests and disease.  He is also here to assist us as we navigate boundaries and limitations, responsibility and authority, and our human mortality.  He is the archangel to invoke when dealing with injustices and enslavement and in moments of deep fear.

Archangel Cassiel is often depicted as an old man or holding an hourglass.

Invoke his presence and he will come to your aid to help carry your burdens and share your woe.  But he will also remind you of the necessity of hardship and the great learning that comes from the darkest hour.

Archangel Cassiel resonates with the colors of deep purple and black and with the planet Saturn.

These are signs and ways for you to know when and how to cleanse Tarot cards:

  • You buy a new deck;
  • You receive a used deck;
  • You have put a lot of effort into a particularly difficult spread;
  • Others have contacted your deck;
  • Your deck has not been used or stored for a long time;
  • You or your deck was covered in a bad or gloomy atmosphere;
  • Your reading gradually becomes blurred, difficult, disconnected or unclear;
  • Your Tarot cards are dropped or related to certain incidents;
  • You want to reconnect to a deck which is in a “hibernation” state.

Cleansing the deck is just as important as cleaning up the other items you use in life. If electrical equipment gets dirty through repeated use, they will be at risk of being damaged and will no longer work stably. Only when they are cleaned, they will be effective again. Other “tools” in our lives, including Tarot, are not out of the matter.

The purification of the Tarot deck is important for maintaining a clean source of energy flowing in your cards as well as in your interpretation. You want to make sure that the emotional source of you and your querents can flow seamlessly throughout each card to produce the best reading results and answers. On top of that, the cards cannot lead our lives if they get dirty.

You can choose one of the following methods to answer the question “how to cleanse Tarot cards”:

I. The meaning of the Three of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

This is the bridge that reaches the edge of the world. The lower steps below tempt those who are curious and brave to go there and embark on a dangerous journey. It bent across the sky but then did not go much further. She stood on the borderline and hesitated, and wondered where she was going. The dazzling sunlight overhead made her squint, radiating beneath the shimmering bands of light that stretched along the river, reflecting on the hill in the distance below. Like a crystal with endless energy, slowly rising, it brought with itself the eternal light like all the potential she had, waiting for her from deep within, with every breath, every moment that contains the ability that either discourages or encourages us. Be aware of the hidden potential in all things.

She looked at the wands of the travelers who had first arrived. It could also be that from this position they turn away and leave, just like a threat to what happens to the next ones. She hesitated for a moment, did not look down, and then stepped into the indeterminate place. She felt the strong rocks and clay beneath her feet, then realized the bridge was gradually perfected from the steps and dreams of others. She took a breath and then began to take the first step – just like that, step by step, the bridge accordingly grew below her feet.

Through this, the message that Three of Wands wants to send you is to explore, search for new things, discover and expand to new horizons. Let’s broadcast your vision in all situations and clearly show your leadership.

OTHILA

THE SEPARATION FROM THE PAST

This rune represents the need for a change in life, like letting go of the old skin and moving ahead in achieving one’s goal. It can be incorporated into life events, be it a past relationship or move ahead with something new, which is good. Release yourself from the experience you have obtained. Obedience is a necessary virtue people need to have while pulling out this Norse rune.

Besides, it also represents profit and gain. But one must learn to benefit from the provided things and remain obedient and modest.

Witch’s Rune

The Birds

Keywords: Unexpected news, change.

Meanings: The Birds Rune means some unexpected news that may alter your life completely. Especially if this is the leading rune. Generally the news will lead to a positive change but pay close attention to the nearest runes to determine its nature. It can also mean news of riends or family that you haven’t had contact with in quite a while. Letters and documents should be watched for as they may well bring happiness.

From Learn Religions

F is for Fearn or Fern, which is associated with the Alder tree. The Alder is representative of the evolving spirit. Connected with the month of March and the spring equinox, Alder is the symbol of Bran in Celtic mythology. In The Mabinogion, Bran laid himself across a river as a bridge so that others might cross–likewise, the Alder bridges that magical space between earth and the heavens. It is also associated with oracular powers–Bran’s head was an oracle in legend.

Alders are often found in swampy, boggy areas, and conveniently, their wood doesn’t rot when it gets wet. In fact, if left to soak in water, it becomes hardened. This came in handy when early Britons were building strongholds in bogs. The city of Venice, Italy, was originally built upon piles of Alder wood. Once it’s dry, though, Alder tends to be less than durable.

Fearn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Keep in mind that you are an individual… but so is everyone else. When you look at someone, see the unusual which makes them themselves–and allow them to see that uniqueness in you. Be a mediator, a bridge, between people who may be having a disagreement.

Magical Aspects: Follow your instinct. Others will turn to you for advice and counsel during spiritual disagreements, and it’s your job to be the mediator and voice of reason.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.

Norse Runes: Viking Runes, Norse Symbols & Much More to Know!

Archaeology played a big role in making the human race aware of the civilizations from the ancient era. It is now clear that those centuries-old civilizations (like Mayan, Egyptian, and Norse) used unique communicating language in the form of specific Norse runes and carved images on the cave walls.

All or most of these civilizations used these unique methods of communication for thousands of years. They created their own mythologies and holy scripts to promote their culture and rituals to the other parts of the world.

Among all those mythologies and holy scripts, Norse mythology is the one that brings along some exciting and thrilling stories. In fact, there exists a lot of evidence to prove their beliefs and facts in similar regard.

The warriors of this civilization, known as Norse Vikings, used to communicate via Norse Rune stones ( stones carved with random signs and artwork). The Viking runes were their way of expressing feelings, specific events and also the war signs. If you are interested in this aspect of history, then read ahead to gain all the essential information about the Viking runes.

The Viking Runes

The Norse culture today is popular for the way they passed down the stories to the next generation. The culture used oral interpretations rather than writing tales. Old Norse is popular as the Viking’s speaking language. People used it for passing sagas and also some other stories to the children.

Before accepting the Latin alphabet, runes letters were presented in the alphabetic form known as runic alphabets. Many used them for writing indifferent Germanic languages during that time.

People used the Viking runes to describe things and places, and mystical courses of future events. However, they usually used them for protection. People use some of the Norse symbols commonly for love, health, seed, tides and even the weather. In contrast, some people also use Viking runes for abortion, cursing, birth and even death.

Among all the reasons for using Viking runes, the most basic one was to attract good fortune. The Vikings used the runes for more than 2000 years. They usually carved them into cups, amulets and the ship’s bows. These runes were invented by the northern European to present specific things like the force of nature. During those times, the people believed they could have power the weather by having control over the weather runes of Viking.

Scientists have discovered three different Futhark forms :
