Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Even if cause is dear to your heart, today is not the day to push your agenda. Au contraire. Pull in your reins and take it easy. Don’t make a big deal about anything because you don’t have the energy to follow through to make your case. Don’t end up with egg on your face.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Disputes about inheritances, shared property, insurance issues and anything that you share with someone might arise now. However, today is a poor day to make your stand because you don’t have the energy to defend your best interests. Relax.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Difficulties with partners and close friends might arise today. Someone might be spoiling for a fight? Actually, all this seems like too much trouble for you. Who needs it? Not you. Listen to that little voice in the back of your head and keep walking.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Avoid disputes that are work-related today. Or perhaps these disputes are about your pet or something related to your health? Whatever the case, you have your doubts, which is why you’re hesitant to make a big deal about something.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be forgiving when dealing with your kids today because it will be wise to cut them some slack – just for today. Likewise, difficulties with romantic partners might lead to confusion. You might end up fighting about something that is quite meaningless.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Domestic disputes aren’t worth the trouble today. Someone might egg you on or try to get under your skin, but is it really worth quarreling about it? Many people feel sort of halfhearted about things today. So do you. That’s quite alright. You can’t be an action hero every day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Cut yourself some slack if you don’t of the energy to accomplish your To Do list of errands and appointments. You might begin with ambition and high expectations, but soon you will lose steam. Give yourself permission to do so. Take time out for good behavior.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a poor day to dispute someone about money or possessions or anything that you own. It’s true you might be irritated about something, but it’s hard to get really worked up about it. That’s because most people feel a halfhearted energy about things today. No biggie.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you might feel doubtful or discouraged about something. You might feel inadequate or wonder if you’re up to the task? You are. The problem is this is just one of those days where it’s hard to rev your engines and get going. Don’t worry about it. Take a break today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today you might be unpleasantly confronted by the consequences of past actions that you had hoped would simply go away and fade off into the sunset. But they didn’t. (Don’t you hate that?) We all question what we’re doing at times. Take it easy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You won’t be happy if you take on a fight or an argument with a friend or a member of a group today. Far better to step aside and conserve your energies and confront this person another day when you really have the right energy to do so. Today is not the day.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Even if you are unhappy with parents, bosses or the police today, this is not the day to make a stand. You won’t do a good job of defending yourself. Wait for another time when you feel crystal-clear, motivated and up for it.

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 LearnReligions.com

Named for the Norse god Tyr, who was a deity of heroism and combat, Tuesday is a very martial sort of day—color associations include bright red and oranges, as well as warrior-like metals such as iron and steel.

The ancient Romans called this day Martis, after the warrior god Mars—other deities associated with Tuesday include Ares, the Morrighan, and other gods of battle and glory. Red gemstones like rubies and garnets come into play on Tuesdays, as do herbs and plants such as thistles, holly, coneflowers, and cacti—you’ll notice these are all sharp, prickly plants!

One of the interesting—and more than a little amusing—aspects of Tuesday magic is that in addition to war and conflict against your enemies, this is a day also associated with marriage. You can also use this day of the week for magical workings connected to protection and initiation. Use Tuesday to assert yourself, make a mark and stake your claims.

Madhr

Sound: “m”
Stands for: Man (as in human, not gender)
Casting meaning: This rune stands not only for humankind but also represents the mythical “first man,” Mannus (or Mannaz). Since it represents humankind it symbolizes the continuity of the family and clan.

Cross Spears

Keywords: Arguments, negativity.

Meanings: The Crossed Spears is a rune that signifies arguments and negative events. Often this can be of an upsetting nature, rather like the Tower card in the tarot. It is not all bad though. If it is near to a positive rune it may indicate the end of a quarrel and healing. Especially if it lies near the Rings. This rune could mean a promotion at work, or a fast recovery if you’re ill.

Ogham

From thepeculiarbrunette.com

Haith/Uathe

Pronunciation – Hoo-ah

Tree Association – hawthorn

Meaning – barriers, despair, protection, loneliness, strife, or feeling suffocated. Don’t avoid problems or issues in your life. You may be experiencing setbacks or misfortune, but it will eventually pass. Remember good times and difficult times are a natural part of life. Now is not the time for aggressive reactions, be patient. Look for solutions while remaining humble and open to new possibilities without dismissing your original intentions or goals.

If reversed – You’ve come to an impasse or standstill. If you continue to be forceful and aggressive, it will lead to embarrassment or misery.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Use to help clear your thoughts of negativity and open your intuition and insight. Huath offers patience, wisdom, and empathy to your spirituality.

Folklore – In Irish mythology, the hawthorn is a Faery tree that acts as a barrier, allowing only those to pass who are deemed worthy. Since the hawthorn blooms in May, a wreath of its leaves was often placed on top of the maypole, and its flowers were brought into the home at Beltane for good luck. However, superstitious belief indicated that bringing Hawthorn blossoms into your home would also invite disease and bad luck during any other time of year.

Orion’s Belt Region in Gas and Dust

Image Credit & Copyright: Matt Harbison (Space4Everybody), Marathon Remote Imaging Observatory

Explanation: You may have seen Orion’s belt before — but not like this. The three bright stars across this image are, from left to right, MintakaAlnilam, and Alnitak: the iconic belt stars of Orion. The rest of the stars in the frame have been digitally removed to highlight the surrounding clouds of glowing gas and dark dust. Some of these clouds have intriguing shapes, including the Horsehead and Flame Nebulas, both near Alnitak on the lower right. This deep image, taken last month from the Marathon Skypark and Observatory in MarathonTexasUSA, spans about 5 degrees, required about 20 hours of exposure, and was processed to reveal the gas and dust that we would really see if we were much closer. The famous Orion Nebula is off to the upper right of this colorful field. The entire region lies only about 1,500 light-years distant and so is one of the closest and best studied star formation nurseries known.
