A Thought for Today

I am not feeling any better than yesterday as it is still below 0F here and in the double digit below 0F with the wind chill factor. But I do not want to take off another day and you miss out on the daily posts I try to do every day. So even though all the extras’ posts are missing at least you are getting the regular everyday posts. It will probably be the same for the rest of this week. I hope you will bear with me while I am in this fibromyalgia super flare and the pain from arthritis and stick around until I can bring you extra posts about a wide range of pagan and some other topics.

Life in The Craft mini magazine will still be going out on January 30th, so you have the stuff it covers for Imbolc which falls on February 1st.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 9:15 PM PST today. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a productive day, especially if you want to take care of red-tape details about insurance matters, shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt. Roll up your sleeves and dig in! You have the motivation; furthermore, someone with power and influence has your back. (“Thanks, mom.”)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Because the Moon is directly opposite your sign today, this means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. It’s no biggie. In two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, someone will have to go more than halfway when dealing with you!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This can be a productive day for you. You are motivated to get organized and get your ducks in a row. It’s a good day to review previous work, especially in areas related to the wealth and resources of others, including taxes and debt. Review things and wrap them up.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a playful day for you, which is why you would rather relax and enjoy the company of others instead of working. Do be patient with partners and close friends because it’s easy to be irritated. And of course, old friends are back in the picture.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A discussion with a female relative might be significant today. Although you want to keep a low profile because you want to cocoon at home. Nevertheless, someone might draw you out. (And you’re actually motivated to get stuff done.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you want to get organized, yet, you also want to play. No matter what happens, in conversation with others, you want them to give you the real deal. You don’t want to be brushed off by superficial chitchat. Not today. “What’s the scoop?”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Two different influences are at play today. On one hand, you feel lighthearted, fun-loving and prankish. You might also be involved with an old flame. (Oh my.) On the other hand, you have different fingers. Part of you wants to get serious about financial matters and values.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because the Moon is in your sign today, you feel heightened emotions. Conversations with others will be important; fortunately, they’ll be pleasant. (There is no ignoring that relatives and family you haven’t seen for a while are back in your world.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you’re happy to keep a low profile because let’s face it, it’s been a. busy, fast-paced time; plus, you’ve been dealing with delays, silly goof-ups and transportation problems. No wonder you will welcome a rest from the insane busyness around you. (Whew!)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

With a handful of planets in your sign, you’re pumped! Financial issues are on your mind; however today, a conversation with a female friend or a member of a group could be important. This person might influence your future goals? “Eh wot?”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You continue to shine with the Sun in your sign. And today, the Moon is at the top of your chart, which draws attention to you. People seem to know personal details about your private life. Be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. Nevertheless, with the Sun in your sign, you will can call the shots. People defer to you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Lately, you’re happy to work alone or behind the scenes. That’s because the Sun is “waiting” before it enters your sign when your birthday arrives. Nevertheless, today the idea of travel and doing something different appeals. You want a bit of adventure and stimulation!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Hockey player Wayne Gretzky (1961) shares your birthday today. You are energetic, bold and courageous. You are also warm hearted and generous to loved ones.

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 Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Stars, Dust, and Gas Near Antares

Image Credit & Copyright: Mario Cogo (Galax Lux)

Explanation: Why is the sky near Antares and Rho Ophiuchi so dusty yet colorful? The colors result from a mixture of objects and processes. Fine dust — illuminated from the front by starlight — produces blue reflection nebulae. Gaseous clouds whose atoms are excited by ultraviolet starlight produce reddish emission nebulae. Backlit dust clouds block starlight and so appear darkAntares, a red supergiant and one of the brighter stars in the night sky, lights up the yellow-red clouds on the lower right of the featured image. The Rho Ophiuchi star system lies at the center of the blue reflection nebula on the top left. The distant globular cluster of stars M4 is visible above and to the right of Antares. These star clouds are even more colorful than humans can see, emitting light across the electromagnetic spectrum.
