April 11, 2022 Current Moon Phase Digest

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

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on April 11 has an illumination of 71%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day.

It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

Casting meaning: This rune represents the power of woman, birth and regeneration. It also represents the birch tree (or twig) which is the favored wood used for runic divination because it is considered pure and absent of harmful influences.

Witch’s Rune

Trinity

Triple goddess, life/death/rebirth, trinity, love – romance

Some people read this witches rune as a flower – new life, birth, fertility, love. I tend to read it more like the triquetra – life/death/rebirth cycles, triple goddess, etc. It’s completely up to you how YOU interpret these!

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham- For more information about Oir

Oir

Epiphany, realization, peak, lightning flash, elucidation

Tree: Spindle (Euonymus spp.)

Letter: Th

Oir signifies the realization something is at its peak. It is a few of insight and understanding; it is the “bolt of lightning” like Prometheus’s fire that enables human beings to evolve. Lifting the veil of ignorance can be painful and seeing the truth does not always feel like a gift. The possession of knowledge is a complex burden to carry: it is too complicated to qualify as “good” or bad”. Nevertheless, some epiphanies can be life-changers. They can grant us the ability to make good decisions and liberate us from cycles we no longer wish to participate in.

Believers in reincarnation speculate the reason we cannot remember our past lives whenever we want is because all of that information would fry our little human brains. The same is true of clairvoyance: if we could see all of the non-corporeal activity around us, it would likely send us straight into the asylum. A little fire is good; burning the house down or freezing to death for lack of a pack of matches is not good. Seeking knowledge is great; seeking to know it all at the expense of one’s sanity and personal hygiene never works out. Running away from the life of the mind ends badly in equal measure. As usual, this Ogham implies a balance should be struck.

Questions to ask when you draw Oir: …

Huan / Dissolution

Wind carries the Mists aloft:
Sage rulers dedicated their lives to serving a Higher Power and built temples that still endure.

The King approaches his temple.
Success if you stay on course.
You may cross to the far shore.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Walls meant to protect have instead separated and isolated.
Your defenses have kept you apart from those whom you most need to touch.
Whatever the reason for discord between you, it is time to lay down your arms.
Dispel the inflexible demands and fears of the Mind so that you may reunite in the Heart.
If you have begrudged, forgive.
If you have torn down, repair.
If you have injured, heal.
If you have judged, pardon.
If you have grasped, let go.

Numerology

From numerology.com

The numbers 1-9 are very important to the science of Numerology. The energy and meaning of each of these numbers is different, so whether we see them in our Numerology charts or wonder why they keep reappearing in our lives, it’s important to know what they mean so we can understand the messages they are sending us. The number 9, the very last of these numbers, has been on a long journey, and now shines its light of love and divine wisdom into the world.

What is the definition of 9 in Numerology?

The energy of the number 9 represents completion, but not finality. Think of it more in a cyclical sense; it’s about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin. The 9 in Numerology acts as an usher in this process of transition or transformation, guiding and empowering us with its wisdom. It absorbs answers from a spiritual source, then delivers them to us in the real world.

This number is a humanitarian at heart. It is compassionate, kind, and intent on putting its efforts toward creating the greatest good. The 9 in Numerology has gone through its fair share of hardship and is wiser, stronger, and more aware as a result. These first-hand experiences make it especially understanding of others who are struggling and willing to provide valuable support.

Spell for Today – Knot Healing Spell

 

Knot Healing Spell

This involves tying and untying the string.

 Tie seven knots in a string

 Visualize the illness and suffering as you tied the initial knots (you are not wishing the illness – in fact the opposite. You are transferring the illness into the knot)

 Make it into a bracelet for the patient

 Untie one knot each day – visualizing the relief as the knots are untied, as the illnesses negative energy is allowed to dissipate into the atmosphere.

 On the last day, unravel the thread and throw everything into running live water, flowing away from the patient’s location.

2022 April 11

A Space Station Crosses a Busy Sun

Image Credit & Copyright: Wang Letian (Eyes at Night)

Explanation: Typically, the International Space Station is visible only at night. Slowly drifting across the night sky as it orbits the Earth, the International Space Station (ISS) can be seen as a bright spot several times a year from many locations. The ISS is then visible only just after sunset or just before sunrise because it shines by reflected sunlight — once the ISS enters the Earth’s shadow, it will drop out of sight. The only occasion when the ISS is visible during the day is when it passes right in front of the Sun. Then, it passes so quickly that only cameras taking short exposures can visually freeze the ISS’s silhouette onto the background Sun. The featured picture did exactly that — it is actually a series of images taken earlier this month from BeijingChina with perfect timing. This image series was later combined with separate images taken at nearly the same time but highlighting the texture and activity on the busy Sun. The solar activity included numerous gaseous prominences seen around the edge, highlighted in red, filaments seen against the Sun’s face, and a dark sunspot.
