The Rowan Moon is associated with Brigid, the Celtic Triple Goddess of Imbolc or Candlemas. Brigid is also a Goddess of spinning and weaving who prepares the never-ending fabric of life and guides the passage of the Sun through the constellations and the seasonal cycles.  Rowan was therefore the wood traditionally used for the making of spindles and spinning wheels.

Irish Druids held Rowan trees sacred and called them “The Tree of Life”.  The Rowan’s old Celtic name is Fid na ndruad which means Wizards Tree and this shows its long tradition of being associated with Druids, sorcerers and …

Flashback 2004 Lammas

(This is written for the Northern Hemisphere in 2004. The date of August 7th is wrong for 2022 the Southern or Northern Hemisphere)

Lammas

Lammas is the first of the harvest festivals, a celebration of ripening grains and grapes. If you celebrate traditionally on the second, the planetary energies offer a for great creative energy, drama, and joy. If you celebrate on the astrologically on August 7 at 15 degrees of Leo, the Moon will aid a ceremony with great magic and mystery.

The Sun is wanning, but still holding sway in the sky. A day of circle dances and foot races will honor the Sun; be certain the music encourages exuberant joy. If you planted wheat in a pot or plot, this is the day to ritually harvest it. Use some to make a Brigid’s cross; save a few stalks to return to the earth as compost next spring and lend continuity from harvest to sowing to harvest.

If corn is your grain of choice, bring ripe ears to the altar and use the husks to make corn dollies for use at Imbolc. Indian corn can be dried, ground, and used in corn bread. Make a fiery incense with dragon’s blood and hot herbs like ginger or galangal. Do a ritual at a sacred spot — a well or tree or sacred hill. Use the colors of green and gold and orange for your altar, and encourage everyone to wear them. The harvest has just begun.

Flashback 2004 Imbolc

 Imbolc

Celebrate this festival by draping the altar in white and silver. Kepp the entire altar white — white candlesticks, white incense bowls, etc. Represent the Goddess with a figure of a horned cow. If you wear robes in ritual, honor Brigid in her guise as the goddess of the dairy by wearing white. With Neptune lending the glamour to your robes to the Sun this time, as glitter to your robes with sliver and “diamonds.” Let your imagination run wild.

Save snow from the last storm, or use crushed ice, and put it out in bowls on the altar. Scrub clean an old milke bottle or cream jar and fill it with fresh milk; freshly made mozzarella cheese will round out your cakes and ale. Nestle all bowls in the snow.

The planetary energies are particularly favorable this sabbat for working magic for world peace. Place all the candles you’ll be using this year on the altar and start this ritual in the dark — this is, without lights. Add your magic to the returning Sun. Dedicate and consecrate all your candles during this festival of lights, and consecrate your agricultural tools for use in the coming cycle of growth. This is the festival of new beginnings.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might have new, fresh, innovative ideas related to your job or perhaps your health today. Whatever happens, you will see how to improve something, especially to do with technology. Possibly, your clever improvements will apply to how you deal with your pet. It’s an interesting day!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you’re full of creative, original ideas! Surprise invitations to a social occasion or something to do with a creative project might also occur. Alternatively, an appointment might be cancelled. Note: this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids. Be vigilant.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Something unexpected might impact your home routine today. A small appliance might break down or a minor breakage could occur. Perhaps someone unexpected might knock at the door? Stock the fridge so you’re ready for anything. (Hopefully, the surprise is pleasant.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

There is an unpredictable quality to this day. You might change your daily plans. You might meet someone new who is unusual. You might have bright, clever ideas? However, it is a mildly accident-prone day for you, so be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might spend your money impulsively today. Therefore, beware spontaneous shopping because you could have later regrets. At least, keep your receipts – and the box. Meanwhile, keep an eye on your money because you might find money or you might lose money.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today has an electric, exciting quality to it because the Moon is in your sign dancing with wild, wacky Uranus. This can make you impulsive and ready to do something at the drop of a hat. Nevertheless, think twice before you act to avoid having later regrets. Be smart.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a vaguely restless day for you. You might not know why. That’s not important because this influence is brief. Don’t worry if you feel unsure of things because in fact, there are subtle and not so subtle changes today taking place everywhere today. If you’re not sure what to do, do nothing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might meet a real character today. Or possibly, someone you already know will do something that surprises you. A discussion with a friend might also prompt you to reconsider or rethink your long-term goals. Keep an open mind. (But not so open that everything falls out.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A boss, parent, teacher or member of the police might catch you off guard today – be prepared. This is because something to do with authority figures will be unpredictable. In turn, this could make you feel rebellious or inclined to overreact. Be cool. Never underestimate the power of courtesy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel plans might change today. Or possibly, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to do so. You might hear news that is pleasing regarding a course or something related to politics, religion or higher learning. Could be anything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Double check all details regarding debt, shared property, insurance issues and banking because something unexpected could impact these areas. When it comes to your debt and your wealth, you want to be on top of things and be in the know. Information is power.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A friend or partner will surprise you today by saying or doing something you didn’t expect. Possibly, you will be introduced to someone, perhaps someone in the general public, and they will be unusual or surprising in some way. Stay off your heels. Be alert.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Luke Grimes (1984) shares your birthday today. You are friendly and sociable. People are drawn to your sincerity. You are fun-loving, generous and are attracted to humanitarian causes.

Trust your independence and keep an eye open for new opportunities.

JANUARY 21 birthday horoscope predicts that you are irreplaceable! The January 21 birthday zodiac sign is Aquarius – the Water Bearer. You give the appearance of being one cool cat. You have this internal magnet that draws people toward you. You cannot go anywhere that people do not know you. You walk into a room and own it. You are one famous personality.

As people have this impression of you, those that do not know you would say you are stuck on yourself. In all actuality, you are entertaining loving, humorous and lovable individuals. Aquarius, you seem to encompass many attractive qualities or so says the January 21 horoscope.

The January 21 birthday personality are smart and beautiful, but you can be somewhat unconventional in your way of thinking and doing things. You have significant close relationships with friends and family. They are your source of strength and companionship.

January 21 zodiac, you are number eleven in the astrological tree. This zodiac sign is known as the Water Bearer. My dear Aquarius, you are a natural born leader. Even though your personal life is important to you, you place it on the back burner for your career.

You are too intelligent and talented for your abilities to go to waste. You think that your talents should be used for the greater good of the people so, you share the rewards with others. You love it when people are attracted to you for your brain rather than your sex appeal.

The January 21 horoscope says that you are more traditional in romantic affairs than other Aquarians. You very much want to pair up rather than be another notch on the post. When someone sparks your interest, you are passionate and hopeful that it results in a love commitment.

Because of your popularity and your emotional brick wall, it is hard for you to maintain a new romantic relationship. It is as if those with January 21 birthday push people away or choose those that they cannot have to begin with. Can it be that when things start to go your way, you mess it all up? It is something to think about. Otherwise, you are a reasonable and objective Aquarian.

You are the “go-to” person. Friends, family and your subordinates know they can count on you. With your charm, you possess those qualities to rub noses with the right people. Your tireless pursuit of success, money and perhaps, notoriety, keeps you busy. You need to take some time off too.

With all you have going on, January 21 birthday personality can be moody at times and understandably so. In your quest for these goals, you hate to hurt anyone’s feelings, so you feel bad when you lash out at someone you love. The truth of the matter is that the ruthless nature of success is that other people get hurt. You want to live a lifestyle uncommon to your upbringing, so you take with you a determination to beat the odds.

The Aquarius birthday astrology analysis for today says that you have to be resourceful to come up with new and profitable ideas as those born on January 21. Most of which are risky. You always have had a flair for the unusual. The future of person who born on 21 January will be unique and different.

You need to advance, and so, you try to come up with new ways of improving, building or manufacturing things. Being the observant Aquarius that you are, you have learned important life lessons. It could be where you developed your leadership qualities.

What your birthday says about you is that you have come quite a long way. But you still have not found that one thing that drives you out of bed in the morning. There are many job opportunities you want to involve yourself in.

You are talented enough to become an instructor, a politician, speaker, or someone in the healthcare industry. You could be a gifted songwriter or have the ability to sing. The decision lies with you. Whatever it ends up being, you will be great!

Some would say that being born on January 21 makes you a stimulating Aquarius. I would say so! Your energy is incredible. You juggle different goals and give each your best. It would drive some other Aquarians crazy, but it is your sanity.

Speaking of your sanity, you tend to hold grudges. Aquarius you need to let go. It is in the past. Make your peace with it and move on. Do a little spring-cleaning so you can get something new in its place. Get a haircut or a new color while you are at it. Change can be good.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – For more about Ur

Ur

Intimacy, gentleness, sweetness, kindness, positivity, partnership

Tree: Heather (Erica spp., Calluna spp.)

Letter: U

Ur speaks of deep relationships, family, mates, and close friendships in both the biological family and non-biological family sense. It is nearly impossible to survive as a true hermit. As much as it can seem desirable at times to cut oneself off from the rest of society, the truth is we are stronger together. One of the immeasurable benefits of a light touch — letting go of small grievances, avoiding childish selfishness, and not letting irritability get the upper hand — is deep and lasting relationships. When you want something, chances are coaxing rather than forcing will get you the result you want… just like the old saying “you win more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” Depending on your personality or mood, sweetness may seem counterintuitive. This Ogham suggests perhaps sweetness/gentleness is the best policy.

Nature is often fantastically cruel but she is also a protector and nurturer. Ur is her nurturing side. Ur teaches the beauty of the long cycle and of the flow that often goes unnoticed by busy, modern people. True kindness improves everything around you. Just as a single common plantain has an important role to play in a many-acred meadow, your small act of graciousness will reverberate and help you to evolve into an improved version of yourself. Don’t underestimate a single time where you checked your temper or did the right thing when you were tempted to do the opposite. Everything you do matters. Everything you do is part of the flow. You are indeed being watched, if only by a more enlightened version of yourself who knows better.

Angel Number

From Angel Number – For more information about number 666

Six Hundred Sixty-Six

In this kind of special article about angel numbers, we will try to interpret the mysterious meaning and symbolism of infamous number 666, many times accused to be a demoniac, devilish and cursed number.

Well, there are various explanations and opinions on that New Testament’s verse, calling number 666 ‘the number of the beast’. There is more to it. Firstly, we will interpret this number from the aspect of angelic numerology.

It may sound a bit odd, even surprising, to talk about number 666 as something related to angels, pure heavenly spirits of light and majesty of celestial forces!

Angelic numerology interprets numbers by their specific energy vibrations, not as (non)religious symbols. According to spiritual teachings, numerology in particular, numbers resonate with energies of heavens.

Energies we talk about are parts of universal, ever flowing and life giving cosmic energy that moves the world around.

Seen through the prism of angelic numerology, number 666 is simply another of angel numbers. To get the better idea of it, we will start by explaining what angel numbers actually are.

You see, according to alternative spiritual teachings and related fields, human world is guarded by heavenly spirits.

Depending on the system of belief, a religion or a spiritual path you belong to, forces of heavens are imagined and represented differently.

The exact image and idea you have in mind when talking about universal forces does not matter that much; the point is, various systems believe we are guided, guarded and loved by heavenly forces.

According to various authors, we are all protected by our …

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

One

From a spiritual perspective, the 1 is the number of creation – the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Some say once you truly understand the place and function of this elemental number, enlightenment will be yours.

This statement doesn’t apply to a Numerologist’s perspective alone, but perhaps it’s a good place to start since the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its elevated spiritual symbolism.

The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results.

The 1 is aggressive – a necessary trait for creating, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.

The shape of this number reflects its meaning; the 1 walks upright with pride and purpose – strong, determined, and unwavering with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality – pushing obstacles aside or simply drilling right through them.

The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities.

An individual with the dynamic 1 trusts their ability to separate right from wrong, doesn’t waste time on abstract ideas, and rarely follows a path that isn’t in line with their result-oriented goal. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, spiritual explorer, nor dreamer – and certainly not an idealist. They are pragmatic, ruthless conquerors, and warriors extraordinaire. The 1 is individualistic and independent to a fault. They will attempt to force their viewpoint on you but have no desire to hear yours.

The 1 can be confrontational, jealous, and exceedingly stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new (with promise) even at great risk. They have a sense of honor and responsibility that demands respect and are the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy.

Befriend a 1 and you have a friend for life.

Fortunately, the 1 has a great capacity for humor, often self-depreciating, so you can poke fun at your friend and not worry about hurt feelings. But don’t cater to them to win love or friendship or you will lose their respect. Stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you’ll gain admiration. Working for a 1 you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to unreasonable expectations. But you will also become the best you can be.

When in trouble, you want a friend with a strong 1 on your side, and you won’t find a braver partner or a more dedicated protector. But, if the 1 is your enemy, you could be crushed without mercy. And be forewarned, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers, demanding, jealous, confrontational, and impatient.

If you have a 1 in your core numbers, your happiness and sense of satisfaction will come from your work more than any other source.

Hexagram 28 Twenty-Eight

The Flood rises above the tallest Tree:
Amidst a rising tide of human folly, the Superior Person retires to higher ground, renouncing his world without looking back.

Any direction is better than where you now stand.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Several high-priority concerns demand immediate attention.
All are crucial.
None will be denied.
Yet some demand the denial of others.
Like two atoms seeking to occupy the same space, these irresistible forces and immovable objects threaten to ignite a cataclysm that could irreversibly alter your world.
This is no time for fatal heroics.
You are at Ground Point Zero.
Remove yourself from this situation without delay.
Find sanctuary.
Later you may deal with these concerns on your own terms, from a position of strength.

Young Star Jet MHO 2147

Image Credit & License: International Gemini Observatory / NOIRLab / NSF / AURA Acknowledgments: L. Ferrero (Universidad Nacional de Córdoba)
Explanation: Laser guide stars and adaptive optics sharpened this stunning ground-based image of stellar jets from the Gemini South Observatory, Chilean Andes, planet Earth. These twin outflows of MHO 2147 are from a young star in formation. It lies toward the central Milky Way and the boundary of the constellations Sagittarius and Ophiuchus at an estimated distance of some 10,000 light-years. At center, the star itself is obscured by a dense region of cold dust. But the infrared image still traces the sinuous jets across a frame that would span about 5 light-years at the system’s estimated distance. Driven outward by the young rotating star, the apparent wandering direction of the jets is likely due to precession. Part of a multiple star system, the young star’s rotational axis would slowly precess or wobble like a top under the gravitation influence of its nearby companions.
