2022 March 8

Moon in Inverted Colors

Image Credit & Copyright: Dawid Glawdzin

Explanation: Which moon is this? It’s Earth’s moon — but in inverted colors. Here, the pixel values corresponding to light and dark areas have been translated in reverse, or inverted, producing a false-color representation reminiscent of a black and white photographic negative. However, this is an inverted color image — where the muted colors of the moon are real but digitally exaggerated before inversion. Normally bright rays from the large crater Tycho dominate the southern (bottom) features as easily followed dark green lines emanating from the 85-kilometer diameter impact site. Normally dark lunar mare appear light and silvery. The image was acquired in Southend-on-SeaEnglandUK. Historically, astronomical images recorded on photographic plates were directly examined on inverted-color negatives because it helped the eye pick out faint details.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS March 8, you are one amazing individual! You have the gift of mystic abilities. Your psychic perception runs deep. The astrology sign for 8th March is Pisces and you enjoy having this quality.

You may use it to enrich the lives of fellow human beings. You are responsive to the needs of others and you can be seen serving meals to the homeless. This ability to see the best in people makes it easy for you to believe in love.

The 8th March birthday meaning shows you to be sensitive and sometimes shy. Being you, Pisces, you get your feelings hurt a lot. You cannot be so vulnerable when people are only being honest with you or just joking around. You have to laugh at life sometimes, and even at yourself.

Amongst your friends and family, few are close to you. Those of you with birthday March 8 are great friends. You love your little circle of support and are totally devoted to them. However, Pisces, you have your favorite picks.

They are usually the ones that give back as some people will take advantage of your kindness. You must say no to your friends and sometimes, especially no to your family.

Pisces 8 March birthdays usually have a hard time trusting people. You feel that trust like love is something given or earned over time. It does not require rushing in.

If you are involved with someone who is born on this day, you have found someone who is romantic, attuned to his/her partner’s desires, and needs. You have remarkable intuition, Pisces. Yes indeed… you have an awesome gift of imminent powers.

Once a Piscean has found that someone special who deserves to be treasured, you will be a committed and dutiful lover. Your somewhat timid nature could pose a problem for your partner if he/she is the same way. Look for your opposite to compliment you Pisces, as you can be accommodating when it counts the most say your birthday personality.

Most Pisceans do not work for the money – you work for the reward. The best career you could have would be one that combines your dedication and creativity. Maybe you would be interested in human services or an information technologist as a possible profession. To those born on this day 8 March, meeting the immediate and long-term goals are more important than salary.

On the other hand, Pisces zodiac birthday 8th March realize that you want to live a certain way and you have to be able to afford your spending habits so maintaining status financially is important.

When it comes to money, Pisceans could go either way. You will likely be thrifty or you will max out your credit cards. Whichever the case may be, you will manage to overcome any financial burdens.

If yours is an 8 March birthday, you may suffer with bad feet and skin disorders. You could have inherited this condition or it could be a general nuisance. Perhaps an old injury is giving you chronic pain.

Try using holistic health care methods to possibly treating your problem areas. Treat yourself to an oatmeal bath or one with sea salts. Do not forget the candles and wine. You might as well pamper yourself.

According to the March 8 birthday astrology analysis, you are not authoritarians when it comes to parenting. Looking back at your past, you tend to be more lenient with your own children. As a child, Pisces, you were the outcast. You were different and you were perhaps treated as so.

To tell you the truth, you do not know what to think or how to behave toward your family members as a result of this treatment. Pisces, you do not want to subject your children to any special or indifferent treatment and will go through great lengths to see that they are treated equally.

Your birthday horoscope shows that you may have your preference but the group most likely to be entertained by you is your closest friends and family members. Those of you born on March 8 tend to take a relaxed approach to child rearing.

You are likely to be detached from your own parents and want to avoid a second generation of dysfunctional behavior. Of course, you are at your best when helping others, personally or professionally. Pisces, cover up when out in the sun. Protect yourself. You are subject to skin problems.

Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondences for Tuesday

From WitchSwap.com

Associated with the planet Mars

Zodiac sSgns of both Aries and Scorpio, and although Scorpio is a water sign,

Elemental correspondence of Fire.

All of these factors lead to a favorable time for energy work, creativity, justice work, spells for assertion—even to the extent of aggression. This would be a great day for any social justice advocacy spells, or even a baneful working if the need calls for it. Also, summoning courage, strength and passion for yourself or someone else would be favorable on this day.

Color orange for any candle magick.

Gods/Goddesses: Mars, the God of War, gives this day that added confrontational vibe. He is a god who takes no crap from anyone. Channeling him to help you tap into the assertive aspect of yourself will be helpful, especially if you are a person who struggles with implementing boundaries.

Angel: Raphael

Due to the influence that Mars has on this day of the week, Tuesday brings a blast of energy to expend, so it’s natural to feel impulsive or easily-triggered.

What spells to cast on a Tuesday? Scroll down to find a collection of witches’ spells for a Tuesday. Here are some ideas to inspire a Tuesday morning ritual. For a daily ritual, check the Daily Devotional page here.

Candle

Red candles are perfect for a Tuesday ritual. Red has a very powerful and lively energy in candle Magic. It is used for strength, emotional and sexual stimulation, vitality, and passionate love.

Deities

Tuesdays are ruled by AresMorrígan, Mars, Lilith, Tyr, among others.

Tea

Drink a cup of Pu Erh Tea, today for a boost…

From lightwarriorslegion.com

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.”
