Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 9:30 PM PST. The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today your focus is on home, family and your private life. You might want to hide or cocoon at home and just do your own thing. Or you might use your energy at home for family discussions or rearranging the furniture. Either way.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have lots of mental energy today, which is why you have opinions and you want to share them. Factoid: Taurus people are interested in politics and history. They are newspaper readers because the news is current history.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have money on your mind today. You might dream up some moneymaking ideas, or negotiate financial matters. (Probably both.) You might contemplate a major purchase. (Money is so handy when you want to buy things.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which increases your emotional reactions. The good news is it also increases your good luck, which means this is the perfect day to ask the universe for a favour. It never hurts. Why not go after what you want?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a playful, social time for you, which is why today might be the perfect day to be low-key and catch your breath. After all, you can’t be all things to all people all of the time. Not even you – and you are royalty. Cut yourself some slack.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A lively discussion with a friend or a member of a group is likely today. This discussion most likely will be with a female. You might want to encourage a group of people to embrace a certain mandate. Or perhaps you will sit down with someone and discuss your goals for the future?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For some reason, some personal details about your private life seem to be public. People might be talking about you today or they notice you. (You might know about this – or you might not.) Do be aware that this is a possibility in case you have to do some damage control.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you feel restless and eager to explore new ideas and new places! You want some adventure! You certainly want to expand your world in some way. Therefore, travel if you can. If not, explore the world in other ways and try to learn new things. Go for it!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You can’t ignore financial matters today, especially matters related to debt, credit, shared property, inheritances, wills, estates and insurance issues. This is all red-tape stuff, but you have to stay on top of it because it’s the smart thing to do. Don’t be in the dark.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the Moon is in the sign that is exactly opposite from your sign, which means you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Hey, this is no biggie. You simply have to be cooperative and friendly. Be accommodating. Just go along to get along.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will be involved with coworkers today much more than usual. You might listen to their problems or their interests. Likewise, you might be involved with someone who relates to your own health issues. You might even be more emotionally involved with a pet. It’s that kinda day.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Plan to have some fun today! Take a long lunch. Meet someone for Happy Hour. Do something that pleases you, perhaps related to sports events, fun activities with kids or a romantic outing. Take a special “vacation day” just for you.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer, songwriter Miley Cyrus (1990) shares your birthday today. You are enthusiastic, high-energy and creative. You want to have the personal freedom to do things that are different.

NOVEMBER 23 birthday horoscope predicts that you are an easy-going people’s person. You are courageous as you do things most people are afraid to do. Additionally, you can be a positive individual who is straight-forward. You do not keep anything hidden in your heart.

The November 23 birthday horoscope shows that you are confident people. You are strong but adaptable. You are compassionate but honest. It could be said that those of you born on this zodiac birthday have extra powers.

You can bring out the best in people and have a way of getting what you want. However, you must watch how you say what’s on your mind. Some people may not understand it’s just your nature and you have the best intentions in mind. But it doesn’t always come out like that.

My advice is to go to the class reunion and apologize to everyone who you treated with malice and discontent. You may find that most had forgiven you a long time ago and found the insults helpful and beneficial to them.

Occasionally, the November 23 birthday personality has been known to hurt a few feelings because of their candid honesty. You can be impulsive as well, Sagittarius.

You should change the way you deal with people being late as this could drive you up a wall. You have very little patience, but you can change this behavior.

The November 23rd birthday personality is morally grounded. You have your faults but never expose them to the public. On the other hand, Sagittarius as people are idealists. When it comes to romance and love, you may have some disappointing experiences.

The November 23 zodiac shows that you have a knack for picking the wrong people to give your trust and heart too. It is suggested that you slow down before lowering your guards to people you don’t know. You should know that there are bad and good people in this world. This Sagittarius birthday person has to understand that not everybody who smiles at you is your friend.

The November 23 horoscope shows that in your chosen career, you are a natural when it comes to working for the crowds or doing work as a group. Alternatively, you work well on your own. It is possible that you could be your boss. You have the potential to be successful in an enterprising business or as a regional manager.

Although, being rich is not necessarily your goal but rather, personal success is not. Material things hold little value to someone like you. As the November 23 zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you tend to live for today and do not plan for tomorrow.

Can we talk about your health? It seems that you are involved in activities that give you a certain satisfaction or peace. These Sagittarius birthday people enjoy a good game of tennis or ball. This allows you to spend time with a friend and work off some stress. The better you feel and look because of this, you become more confident. We can see it in the way you walk. Keep up the good work, Sagittarius.

As a Sagittarian born on this birthday November 23, you are outgoing and curious about things. You have a niche for people, and perhaps, you are capable of manipulating a few people to get what you want. This is not done to hurt anyone but mainly to sustain a romantic or friendly involvement.

On the other hand, the future of person who born on November 23 shows you might suffer many disappointments in love. You could set your sights too high for someone to reach. A career choice for someone such as yourself would be an occupation that would enable you to be in a crowd. It would seem as though you do better in groups as opposed to one-on-one relationships.

Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence Digest for Tuesday

From GypsyWolf.weebly.com

Tuesday is the third day of the week.  The name is derived from the Nordic sky god in charge of law, order, justice, and war, Tiw (Saxons), also known as Tyr (Scandinavians), Ziu (S. Germans), Tiuz or Tiwaz (N. Germans).  In the Roman calendar the corresponding day was Dies Martis, the day of Mars, god of war and agriculture, originally known as Ares in Greek mythology.  The sacred symbol of all of these deities is the spear.

From FlyingTheHedge.com

The name Tuesday comes from the Germanic God Tiu, like the Roman god Mars, is associated with war. Like Monday, it is full of male energy, but focuses on the more raw nature of the male aspect; think courage, success, war, and lust. This is a good time to deal with issues of violence, competition, conflict, endurance, and survival.

Candle

Light a red candle to receive vigor and strength. Meditating with a red candle enables courage, power, fertility, magnetism, desire, and action.

Ruling Deities

Wiccan God Ares Wiccan Goddess Ceres Wiccan God DemeterAres, Ceres and Demeter are rulers of Tuesdays.

Crystals

Carnelian, Coral, Bloodstone, Ruby, Garnet and Pink Tourmaline

Carrying these gemstones today can bring success and fulfillment of your goals. Wear them as a talisman or simply keep them close to you to harness their energy.

Potion

Drink a cup of Pu Erh Tea today for a boost of vital strength. This type of tea will keep you alert during the day due to its caffeine contents, but it also has many powerful effects on the body such as protecting from harmful bacteria, fighting inflammation, and eliminating body toxins¹.

From whats-your-sign.com

The guardian of this day is Samael, and the ruling planet is Mars. This is a combustive combination.  Why? Well, because Mars is considered a planet (and a god) of aggression, war and conflict as well as red hot passion.  And Samael has a dicey reputation. His name in Hebrew means ‘blind to God’ and/or ‘poison of God’.  By some experts in angelology, Samael is thought to be the angel of death, and/or a dark angel.  However, the Judaic Kabbalah references Samael as the ‘severity of God’.  In this context Samael was commanded by his superiors to essentially do all the dirty work that the ‘nice’ and ‘pretty’ angels didn’t want to do. Affiliated with Tuesday, Samael and the planet Mars assert an energetic message that says: “This day is likely to bring conflict. But do not question the power of your influence over adversity. Assert your will, fight, refuse to let the poison of negativity overwhelm you.”

PERTH

A SECRET GAIN

There is a belief that the Norse runes bring out power the people had present within themselves. They are all connected and can interact continuously. It is not easy to recognize what a person can gain in life from them. It is the mystery that helps people heal their bodies and souls. Some of the mysteries can be found in the form of personal gains, metal surprises that can come out of nowhere, helping people and their souls in the process.

Tinne/Teine

T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Fire ignites within the Lake, defying conditions that would deny it birth or survival:
The Superior Person reads the Signs of the Times and makes the Season apparent to all.

There is no negotiating with the Established Order.

Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move.
Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely.

The Sun in X-rays from NuSTAR

Image Credit: NASANuSTARSDO

Explanation: Why are the regions above sunspots so hot? Sunspots themselves are a bit cooler than the surrounding solar surface because the magnetic fields that create them reduce convective heating. It is therefore unusual that regions overhead — even much higher up in the Sun’s corona — can be hundreds of times hotter. To help find the cause, NASA directed the Earth-orbiting Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) satellite to point its very sensitive X-ray telescope at the Sun. Featured here is the Sun in ultraviolet light, shown in a red hue as taken by the orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Superimposed in false-colored green and blue is emission above sunspots detected by NuSTAR in different bands of high-energy X-rays, highlighting regions of extremely high temperature. Clues about the Sun’s atmospheric heating mechanisms come from NuSTAR images like this and shed light on solar nanoflares and microflares as brief bursts of energy that may drive the unusual heating.

Color Correspondence

Color correspondence is the way that the use of color will affect your magickal workings. From the color of the candles that you use to the color of clothes that you wear

It should be noted that this type of correspondence is not just associated with pagan followings or metaphysics.  There is scientific evidence about the relationship of color to mood, success and growth.  In many penal systems, when an inmate acts out of line (eq. gets in a fight), they are put into a “pink room” for a short time.  This, under short duration, is said to calm the suspect. But long time exposure to pinks or reds can have exactly the opposite effect.
