Click here for Georgia Nicols’ Daily Horoscopes

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 9 PM EST today (6 PM PST). The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today Mercury goes retrograde, which means you’ll be running into bosses, parents and authority figures from your past. This could be good news, or not. Perhaps this is a helpful contact? On the other hand, running into this person from your past might be a bummer.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Until early February, Mercury will be retrograde starting today, which is a great opportunity for you because it will help you finish papers, manuscripts, perhaps a thesis or anything related to legal matters, higher education and the publishing world. Use it!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today Mercury goes retrograde in one of your Money Houses, which means cheques in the mail and money coming to you will be late for the next few weeks. (Bummer.) However, this also gives you a chance to rehash details about inheritances and shared property.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Mercury goes retrograde today directly opposite your sign, which means you are bound to hear from ex-partners and old friends from the past. Sometimes this is a good thing, perhaps an opportunity for closure or a chance to catch up on old history. Sometimes it’s not so good.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For the next few weeks, your efficiency will suffer from goofy mistakes, slipups, misplaced paperwork, missed appointments and confused communications. These won’t be serious. They’ll be like hangnails that irritate you throughout your day. Courage!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Ex-lovers and old flames are back in your world for many of you. This can be exciting or completely unnerving. It all depends on the history of the relationship, doesn’t it? The next two weeks are a good time to finish creative projects and practice techniques and skills. Keep doing those arpeggios.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family might be camped on your doorstep and eating out of your fridge for the next few weeks because you’re bound to run into relatives you haven’t seen or heard from for a while. This will be a chance for you to catch up on the bad old days and trade lies.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Until early Feb., Mercury will be retrograde, which will create transportation delays for you. Missed buses and trains, car problems, confused appointments and mixed-up communications will be classic for your sign during this time. Good luck. (Hey, this is mothing you can’t handle.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Financial transactions will be delayed in the next few weeks until early Feb. Cheques in the mail will be late. Deals might fall through. There might be confused errors regarding earnings. If you’re looking for a job, go back to where you worked or applied before for your best chance.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mercury will be retrograde in your sign until early February, which means you will encounter all kinds of people from the past suddenly popping up in your world again. Meanwhile, goofy mistakes, misplaced items and transportation delays will dog your steps. And so it goes.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your ability to research and find answers from the past during the next few weeks will be excellent because Mercury is retrograde in a hidden part of your chart. You can use this to your advantage! Find solutions to old problems and answers to old questions.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Very likely, in the next few weeks, you will hear from old friends or members of groups to which you belonged in the past. These people are coming out of the woodwork one way or the other. This could be an opportunity for you – or not. You might want to hide. (Take food and a flashlight.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Holland Taylor (1943) shares your birthday today. You have a sharp mind and a marvellous sense of timing. You’re also very observant.

(Take a bow.)

COMPANIONSHIP, AND A GIFT

This rune symbolizes unity and companionship received as a gift. Besides, it advises people do not to accept what the rune provides as a partnership in something which only two people can have in between them. Therefore, you should not present it as a gift but as a unified wish between the couple. In general, advice is valid for every relationship in life, no matter it is the business or the personal one.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham- For more information about Phagos

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Teaching and inspiring others to master a subject is the physical manifestation of knowledge, or in old terminology, the Word made flesh. Beech tree bark makes a primitive form of paper. Phagos implies the written word and the transmission of knowledge through our uniquely human invention: writing.

Teachers and teaching are often undervalued in the modern West, with denigrations such as “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” being thrown about by the arrogant who have never been able to translate their mental skill in a way that consistently inspires others to learn. Bad teachers abound, and they can be bad for any number or reasons: some choose teaching when they have no passion for it, some want the glory of being labeled a teacher. Everybody knows that a good teacher is worth their weight in gold when it comes to the transmission of knowledge, and that a bad teacher is hardly worth the powder to blow them to hell, and often what a teacher is paid has nothing to do with what they’re worth. If you have a good teacher, let them know. Learn all you can while you are able to do so with the best teachers you can find (we live in the age of the internet, and a huge number of great teachers “live” there). Concentrate on a small number of subjects until you gain complete mastery, because you will take that knowledge with you long after your current flesh body dies. If you know a subject well enough to teach it, this Ogham is encouraging you to spread the wealth of your knowledge with other humans in a direct and potentially physical way such as writing.

Questions when you draw Phagos:…

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net – For more information about Hexagram 16

Hexagram Sixteen – 16

Yü / Enthusiasm

Thunder comes resounding out of the Earth:
Similar thunder roars up from the masses when the Superior Person strikes a chord in their hearts.

Whip up enthusiasm, rally your forces, and move boldly forward.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

There is a rhythmic force, a world music, that lives deep in the Unconscious of each of us.
It’s a primitive drumbeat, a shaking rattle, a tribal chant that invokes the primal self to rise up and join the dance.
This is the enthusiasm that is generated now.
Not rhetorical persuasion, not a play on the emotions, but a charismatic, irresistible Call of the Wild.
Confucius said that the person who could comprehend this could ‘rule the world as though it were spinning in his hand.’
This is a time for instinct, not intellect — the Thunder from the Beneath.

Numerology

Twenty – One

Similar to 12 – creative, individualistic, and unconventional. It relies on the self and is a little irresponsible. Not good at managing time, inefficient. 3 Based on 21, however, is more intuitive, sensitive, and cooperative; plays better with others.

A SPELL TO HELP LIFT HARD FEELINGS AND HEAL EMOTIONAL RIFTS

 A SPELL TO HELP LIFT HARD FEELINGS AND HEAL EMOTIONAL RIFTS

Item needed: 1 Quartz crystal
Find a nice quiet place where you can lay down, place the quartz crystal on you third eye and say:
“I call upon Gula, great goddess of Healing,
Guide the help to direct any bad feelings,
See this dark specters reeling.
By the grace of your power I ask you to heal them.
Teach each to feel what the other feels,
By the power of three, I wish it to be.”
If you focus on one person the spell will affect that person a little better than just doing in general.

NGC 1566: The Spanish Dancer Spiral Galaxy

Image Credit & Copyright: Mark Hanson and Mike Selby

Explanation: An island universe of billions of stars, NGC 1566 lies about 60 million light-years away in the southern constellation Dorado. Popularly known as the Spanish Dancer galaxy, it’s seen face-on from our Milky Way perspective. A gorgeous grand design spiral, this galaxy’s two graceful spiral arms span over 100,000 light-years, traced by bright blue star clusters, pinkish starforming regions, and swirling cosmic dust lanes. NGC 1566’s flaring center makes the spiral one of the closest and brightest Seyfert galaxies. It likely houses a central supermassive black hole wreaking havoc on surrounding stars, gas, and dust. In this sharp southern galaxy portrait, the spiky stars lie well within the Milky Way.

14 January 2022 Daily Correspondence Digest for the Southern Hemisphere’s Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

 

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Visit the January 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on January 14 has an illumination of 89%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On January 14 the Moon is 11.63 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent.
